Informative expose explores psychology of thinking, attitudes, logic


Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) November 24, 2014

In his highly informative and insightful new book, “Elementary Thinking for the 21st Century” (published by Xlibris AU), author Geoff A. Mohr delves deep into the psychology of thinking and attitudes. He incorporates modern thinking and analysis techniques to circumstances which everybody encounters. It offers an in-depth elaboration of thinking process, mathematical logic and computer programming; planning and optimization techniques; economic modeling and Finite Element Modeling of distribution. An excerpt from the book reads:

“With ‘real democracy’ it could be hoped that quality of life would improve for all, and in my recent book 2045 I describe how a remote town establishes new, more democratic and egalitarian codes for living after the world’s major cities have been destroyed by global nuclear and biochemical warfare (Mohr, 2014b). In the book The Doomsday Calculation I conclude that real democracy may help reduce the growing number of problems such as overpopulation, pollution, and resource depletion threatening mankind, and I describe what real democracy should entail in more detail in The History and Psychology of Human Conflicts (2012a, 2014).”

The book explores a wide array of topics in the different areas such as: the psychology of learning, memory, and thinking; tools for critical thinking and assessment; collective thinking of groups, corporations, and the public; measurement of attitudes and market research; optimization techniques (both linear and non-linear); Mohr’s flow ratio design (FRD) optimization technique, and econometric modeling techniques (some of them new).

“Elementary Thinking for the 21st Century” is a modern, technically resourced and innovative study of thinking that will prove useful to a wide range of people, including managers, planners, engineers, scientists, teachers, psychologists, and politicians.

The Dr. Luciana Show Aging & Falling, by CSU, Northridge Psychology Professor Luciana Lagana, Wins Honorable Mention at the 2014 International Independent Film Awards.


(PRWEB) October 30, 2014

CSU, Northridge Professor Luciana Lagana has won an honorable mention award for her ‘Dr. Luciana Show – Aging and Falling’ at this year’s International Independent Film Awards. In this particular webisode, Dr. Luciana explores the many different ways seniors can prevent serious falls. In doing so, she talks to experts from the fields of kinesiology, chiropractic care, and martial arts and presents a list of techniques seniors can use to reduce the risk of life-threatening tumbles. “Because falling is the main cause of injuries in older age,” said Dr. Luciana, “I am absolutely thrilled that a program of this nature has fared so well at film festivals – this being our fourth win.”

Describing the Dr. Luciana show as independent film making at its best, International Independent Film Awards director William Johnson notes that the Dr. Luciana show “is impressive because it tackles important topics in a fun, creative and informative way.” Information about the International Independent Film Awards and a list of recent winners can be found at http://www.iifilmawards.com/Awards.html.

At this point in time, Dr. Luciana has shot 16 5-minutes episodes, which are currently in post-production, and she estimates that the entire series will be available to the public in the winter of 2015. “I want seniors to be aware of all they can do to prevent dangerous falls,” said Dr. Lagana. “And so I plan to make this series available to the public as soon as feasible.”
