Here are Zendy’s top 5 reads in October:

Race, Reform, and Tradition in Bahia

1. Brazil’s Living Museum: Race, Reform, and Tradition in Bahia (e-Book)

Bahia is one of Brazil’s most cultural northeastern states. Bahia’s history bears an acute resemblance to that of Brazil. Though Bahia has often been romanticised, it has also been disparaged on many occasions. For many Brazilians and countless tourists that decide to visit Salvador, Bahia represents Brazil’s African roots. Afro-Bahians seem to have preserved their cultural autonomy and have been mostly unaffected by modern tendencies. This e-book celebrates Bahia’s multi-cultural heritage, discusses its many cultural influences, and delves into its rich social, religious, natural history while acknowledging what it currently represents to Brazilians and how it came to be the African cultural epicentre of Brazil.

2. ‘Getting Away With Murder’: O’Brien Directs Sondheim & Furth (Journal Article)

Though both titles are eerily similar, Getting Away with Murder is a play that premiered long before ABC’s famous How to Get Away with Murder and told a completely different tale. The play narrates the story of seven psychiatry patients who meet for their regular group therapy session only to discover that their psychiatrist has been murdered. The comedy thriller first opened on the 17th of March in 1996. In this article from Back Stage journal, the director of the play, Jack O’Brien, discusses what drew him to the script and how the story evolved. Jack O’Brien was the artistic director of the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, California, from 1981 to 2007.

automated dispensing cabinets

3. Patient safety: Analysis of the impact of the implementation of automated dispensing cabinets on drug return in a university hospital (Journal Article)

Technological advancements have aided so many different industries in organising, checking, and standardising their procedures. Pharmacies and hospitals have similarly witnessed how technology can enhance and safeguard certain operations. One area that still poses a challenge in many hospitals is the return of medications. Delays or failure to return medications may encourage deviations and cause medical errors, especially when medicines are accumulated in nursing units.This study from the journal of Clinical & Biomedical Research analysed the amount of returned medication in a university hospital both before and after the implementation of an automated dispensing cabinet. The mean percentage of returned medications was as high as 27% in the years preceding the use of the automated cabinet and dropped as low as 4% in the year following its use.

Stakeholder Politics

4. Stakeholder Politics: Social Capital, Sustainable Development, and the Corporation (e-Book)

Corporate executives and managers might not always be well-equipped to approach ethical and sustainability matters. “While managers rely on facts and rational analysis, their self-appointed critics have mastered the arts of political discourse, issue framing, and media manipulation”. More and more, companies need to pave roadmaps and become familiar with the ‘socio-political terrain’ within their industries. This book aims to guide companies to maintain ‘political legitimacy’ by promoting sustainable development within and outside their organisation. Stakeholder Politics demystifies the most common socio-political problems and explains how to address each of them. The author provides a typology of stakeholder networks that community leaders could identify to ameliorate the social capital patterns within their networks. Furthermore, the book presents real-life cases where managers have already used the approach successfully. This will help community leaders to predict and avoid socio-political risks.

Think and Grow Rich Book

Think and Grow Rich: The Legacy: How the World’s Leading Entrepreneurs, Thought Leaders, & Cultural Icons Achieve Success (e-Book)

Self-help books have always been popular. In fact, Napoleon Hill’s best-selling book, Think and Grow Rich, published back in 1937, was one such type of book. In 2017, James Whittaker published a modern companion of Hill’s book (endorsed by the Napoleon Hill Foundation), which was “released in conjunction with the major motion picture, Think and Grow Rich: The Legacy”. The book recounts the experiences and success stories of some of the world’s biggest entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and cultural icons. The book is packed with experiences of rising above obstacles and disadvantages to find personal contentment. Read more about the journey of different inspiring figures from professional athletes, media moguls, venture capitalists, television personalities to self-help gurus, international speakers, and bestselling authors.

Upcoming Talk at Dubai Cares Pavilion: Promoting a More Knowledgeable Society through Research

Date: 24th November 2021
Time: 3:00pm – 4:00pm
Place: Dubai Cares Pavilion – RewirED Talks

In the age of information, many individuals and professionals are still unable to access high-quality research especially if they are not affiliated with a university or an academic institution. Traditional subscriptions are very costly, and many might not be able to afford them. Other factors like language barriers might also place some people at a disadvantage when it comes to accessing and reading research.

Through this talk, and in partnership with Dubai Cares, we hope to inform, educate, and raise awareness about the benefits of opening research and knowledge to make it more inclusive and offer access to a wider audience. Our experts will discuss how limited access to high-quality research can contribute to social and educational inequality, and how innovative and affordable solutions can bridge the gap by making research more accessible.

Our Experts:

  • Kamran Kardan – CEO and Founder of Knowledge E
  • Samantha Miles – Head of Training and Consulting at Knowledge E

The discussion will address how non-academic professionals can gain access to research, current subscription models and cost, publisher collections, and current societal challenges like the spread of false information and the need for informed action. The talk will also touch on the many benefits of interdisciplinary collaboration, inclusive research, and the features of impactful modern libraries.

Education specialists, researchers, librarians, and related professions will especially find this discussion enriching. Attendance is open to the public.

Free Expo passes are available to delegates wishing to attend this event, reach out to us at info@knowledgee.com before November 21st to claim your free pass.

Top 5 reads of September 2021

Reproducibility research projects across disciplines have proven that the findings of various studies conducted years ago might no longer be applicable today.

Political Science

3. Political Science and Digitisation – Global Perspectives (e-Book)

Digital transformation is a new subject for all disciplines, including political science. It affects the teaching and learning of political science, as well as research methods and publishing. The author describes digitisation as a transformative force that has not allowed the relevant aspects and theories of various disciplines to adapt to the change of medium. The contributions of more than 30 authors from 20 different countries make this e-book a thorough review of the global perceptions, challenges, and stages of adaptation of digitalisation within political science. The book also explores different opportunities that the digital world could have to offer to politics and discusses how digital platforms could be changing the face of political science.

Psychology of Trust

4. Psychology of Trust: New Research (e-Book)

This book explores the notion of trust in a variety of contexts and across disciplines. Trust research within various fields, from e-commerce to investing in charitable organisations, has come to the same overarching conclusion: trust is a central part of human decision-making. The 16 chapters of the book map out how trust can be built, across various scenarios and contexts. The first few chapters explore emotionally-calibrated trust regulation through the lens of philosophy, psychology, and behavioural economists; the role of trust in managing public relations; the importance of trust in building dynamic capabilities; cognitive and emotional aspects of trust; and the biology of trust. Other chapters in this intriguing book explore gender, methods of measuring trust, and how trustworthiness can contribute to success. The book also features a set of interviews on building interpersonal trust within different organisation types.

The author’s years of experience in this domain allow him to provide a unique perspective and to boil down strategic thinking to its core attributes to make it more relatable and comprehensible to readers.
