Top 5 reads of August 2021

Libraries have come a long way since they were first invented. During the Middle Ages, books were a valuable commodity and were therefore chained to the shelves. Today, books are not only more accessible but also more available. Digital libraries like Zendy have made it possible to browse millions of books, articles, and other manuscripts without having to step outside.

The plenitude of available resources can also be overwhelming in itself. For this reason, we keep coming back with a monthly list of top reads from Zendy Plus. This month’s series is packed with research, articles, and e-books about social issues, mental and physical well-being, the latest in orthodontic advancements, herbal medicine, and employee engagement.

Here are Zendy’s top 5 reads in June:

Social media influence

1. Phones and social media turn consumers into whistle-blowers (Article)

This news article from the Canadian Press examines how the corporate sphere is changing with the use of smartphones and social media. Now, consumers are able to record and share content that can quickly spiral out of control and cause corporations a PR nightmare. The article mentions several examples of incidents in which consumers went from being bystanders to calling out companies for bad customer service and other odd behaviour. Companies can no longer sweep embarrassing complaints under the rug in the age of social media. They now need to respond and acknowledge mishaps and shortcomings to regain public trust.

Read about Yoga

2. Yoga Journal (Magazine Issue)

Perhaps one of the reasons that yoga has become increasingly popular in our modern age is because its benefits are both physical and mental, allowing us to return to ourselves and bask in silence and harmony. This issue of Yoga Journal features many enlightening articles about different yoga poses for relaxation, tips for more effective meditation, and moves for better hip rotation. The issue also features a segment with the inspirational Dr Ingrid Yang who is using yoga to help COVID patients heal. By breathing with her patients in a rhythmic manner, Yang tries to counter the side effects of the predominant prescription for COVID-19 patients – isolation.

Clear Aligners

3. Orthodontic Biomechanics: Treatment of Complex Cases Using Clear Aligner (e-Book)

Clear aligners have been around since as early as the 1900s, but they were initially used to correct mild cases and or re-align relapsed cases. This e-book dives into the technicalities and biomechanics of using clear aligners to treat a broader spectrum of cases. The authors discuss the chemical composition and elasticity of plastics needed for these aligners before outlining the objectives, detailing suitable treatment planning, and evaluating progress for different teeth crowding cases classed according to severity. The e-book goes into extensive detail, allowing orthodontists and other industry professionals to harbour a comprehensive understanding of the challenges, benefits, and limitations of this technology.

Top 5 reads of July 2021

Looking for a fresh perspective for your research paper? Having trouble finding comprehensive and credible sources to cite in your article? Check back monthly for our top reads, and you’ll always be fired up with new ideas.

Research often uncovers truths about topics that we rarely think about. This month, our top Zendy reads include exciting articles and e-books that will expand your worldview and your knowledge about design, the history of law, and social behaviour. From analysing human attitudes towards sharks to exploring the fundamentals of packaging, these eye-opening e-books and articles will leave you mentally stimulated.

Here are Zendy’s top 5 reads in July:

Agency in human–shark encounter

1) Agency in human–shark encounter (Article)

Though shark bites are quite rare and not always fatal, sharks are often vilified to the extent that has deeply rooted the “killer shark” trope into our minds. Exaggerated emphasis on the dangers that sharks pose to humans affects the attitude of the public and the policies adopted to control those threats. This study aims to shed light on how this inaccurate representation has affected how we view, treat, and interact with sharks on national levels.

Consumer behaviour in a health crisis: What happened to cash?

2) Consumer behaviour in a health crisis: What happened to cash? (Article)

Human behaviour is affected by many factors, and it most certainly is bound to change in times of crisis. This article compares data from different surveys to examine the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on cash holdings and payment activity. With many individuals reporting having precautionary amounts of cash, especially during natural disasters, the article attempts to draw patterns of human behaviour in response to uncertainty. Could the pandemic have decreased the popularity of cash payments among consumers for fear of contamination? Or have global levels of uncertainty indirectly urged people to hold on to increased amounts of cash?

Curious? Continue reading here: https://app.zendy.io/title/31709

Packaging Essentials: 100 Design Principles for Creating Packages

3) Packaging Essentials: 100 Design Principles for Creating Packages (e-Book)

Don’t judge a book by its cover is a popular saying, but consumers often do judge a product by its packaging. The truth is that packaging can greatly affect buyers’ perceptions of a product’s quality, reliability, and likeability. This e-book is a uniquely comprehensive guide that packaging and other design professionals will find delightful to read. It features numerous design examples and explains the guidelines for creating appealing packages. Which considerations should one keep in mind? How can a designer create more sustainable packaging, tell a story, or use symbolism?

Intrigued already? Continue reading here: https://app.zendy.io/title/31632

Landmark Cases in Public Law

4) Landmark Cases in Public Law (e-Book) 

It is said that the past foretells the future. In the case of public law, this is more accurate than most people care to believe. This publication uses a contextualised historical approach to examine the judicial outcomes of many landmark cases that are often referred to in modern courtrooms. By doing so, the article allows for an analysis of the, often human, factors leading to these outcomes. The e-book argues that factors like attitudes and personality traits often influence a verdict. By referring to different landmark cases throughout history and readdressing their historical contexts, the paper offers a fresh perspective on cases that have been considered canonical.

Did you suddenly find yourself interested in Public Law? If so, continue reading here: https://app.zendy.io/title/31398

Stress Testing: Approaches, Methods and Applications

5) Stress Testing: Approaches, Methods and Applications (e-Book)

We often associate stress with mental and physical states. In this e-book, stress testing refers to the tool that banks and financial institutions can use to determine vulnerabilities in a system. When a global or national crisis occurs, it usually affects the flow of payments. Stress testing can help foresee these changes and prepare an institution to respond to those factors and adapt. By reading this e-book, risk managers, consultants, and other professionals will learn the methodologies and frameworks of this increasingly valuable tool to assess risk.

Wondering how stress testing can be used to foster risk awareness? Continue reading here: https://app.zendy.io/title/3184
