The hour between dog and wolf : risk-taking, gut feelings and the biology of boom and bust by John Coates( Book )

25 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A successful Wall Street trader turned neuroscientist reveals how risk taking and stress transform our body chemistry Before he became a world-class scientist, John Coates ran a derivatives trading desk in New York City. He used the expression 'the hour between dog and wolf' to refer to the moment of Jekyll-and-Hyde transformation traders passed through when under pressure. They became cocky and irrationally risk-seeking when on a winning streak, tentative and risk-averse when cowering from losses. In a series of groundbreaking experiments, Coates identified a feedback loop between testosterone and success'one that can cloud men's judgment in high-pressure decision-making. Coates demonstrates how our bodies produce the fabled gut feelings we so often rely on, how stress in the workplace can impair our judgment and even damage our health, and how sports science can help us toughen our bodies against the ravages of stress. Revealing the biology behind bubbles and crashes, The Hour Between Dog and Wolf sheds new and surprising light on issues that affect us all

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lightly handled story of sex, marriage and Catholicism maintains a gay innocence as Patience Gathorne-Galley wakens to her unused potentialities. Learning of her husband's mistress and very aware of ubiquitous Sin, she is very much surprised to discover that there is such a thing as love when she meets Philip who gives her her first lesson in sex. With the help of her worldly sister and her lawyer husband, Patience uses her faith's weapons to dissolve her marriage to Edward and then discovers she has been living in adultery, with Edward's first wife still alive. But there are other gambits, other obstacles before she is free to take her three little girls, marry Philip and present him with a new baby. Sort of silly if you look at it one way but for some giddy and amusing moments this has a certain spark

The flying man by George Dunning( Visual )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of this classic animated film by George Dunning, director of "Yellow submarine", is simple, almost non-existent.

A second man, accompanied by a dog, arrives and when the animal attacks the coat, the flying man descends, puts on his clothes and walks off. Whereupon the second man tries to emulate his feat, but fails. The characters are all nebulous, water-colour shapes without clear outlines, created by employing a technique that involves painting on glass
Inside the Banker's Brain( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The financial crisis of 2008 has been analyzed exhaustively from seemingly every possible angle except for one -- the neurological. Hosted by former financial analyst Geraint Anderson, this program explores the biology of risk-taking and puts forth the idea that out-of-control hormones may have led to the 2008 crash. Ex-insiders discuss the climate of recklessness and arrogance that immediately preceded the meltdown as psychologists link these traits to the same brain mechanisms that drive addiction. Particular insight comes from neuropsychologist John Coates, who discusses the Winner Effect and the role of testosterone and cortisol in risk-taking behavior
