As with all the MOOCs offered on Open2Study, Human Resources is a very concise and very accessible introduction and overview to the field of people management, recruitment, development and performance.

#PeopleManagement   #HumanResources   #Open2Study   #MOOC   #PeopleManagement   #PerformanceManagement   #Recruitment   #LearningandDevelopment   #MTA   #MastersofTransdisciplinaryApplication   #Postgraduate  
People management is a hugely useful aptitude to possess both inside and outside of a business setting.

Economics is everyone’s business and this book is geared towards making its reader more than capable of being an active and perceptive practitioner of economic practice.

Economics is something to conceptualise, not to memorise.

I suspect that my 2017 New Year’s Resolution will have something to do with posting on this blog regularly and getting PeterO’Brien.me into a nice fixed-up shape…

I suspect that Understanding Media will greatly assist with the Mass Communications major of my MTA; likewise, The Use of Lateral Thinking should assist with the development of Breaking Cinema.

I have invested in two new books on Ebay, The Use of Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono and Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man by Marshall McLuhuan. I am not one for glorifying film and media theorists, because...

The film was a little underwhelming, but still pretty good and the IMAX in laser projection? Well, that was off the scale and in a whole other galaxy altogether!

If you had to watch it in a regular cinema or, worse still, from a pirated version – I’m sorry, you’re a moron!

Lateral thinking is very much key to understanding what I am attempting to achieve with the Breaking Cinema podcast and, as such, I have gone about illustrating a lateral process of enquiring within the subject matter and as the film formulaic structure of this unfinished Vision Video...

Positive Psychology is a very impressive course that opts for a different format to other MOOCs by utilising a round-table discussion in which the lead educator, Dr. Barbara L. Fredrickson, conducts various different discussions and experiments with her guests that the student is invited to participate in as well.

Emotional regulation and gratitude are key talents for achieving life fulfillment

In the same way that I keep saying film and media studies would be greatly enhanced by adopting a more constructive approach, Positive News has innovated and utilises the related emerging field of Constructive Journalism, which is precisely why I purchased some shares in Positive News last year, as part of the #OwnTheMedia crowdfunding campaign. Now the first issue of the rebranded and revamped Positive News publication has arrived in the post.

Sounds good to me!

Based upon current life spans, if you didn't sleep, you would get around 25 years of life back.
Sleeping is probably the most wasteful thing all humans do.

As 2015 closes so does this project (thank sanity), but not 2016, that’s going to be a whole new project…
