BENTHAM INSIGHT

An insight to Bentham Science Publishers

It’s the First Impression That Matters!

Appearances may deceive but whatsoever; it’s the first impression that really counts.  Studies now prove that the impact made by appearances is more effective even when compared to face to face interaction. Even though it has been repeatedly told not to judge a book by its cover but in reality it’s the cover that frames our mind regarding anything.

Zayas, an expert in the cognitive and effective processes that regulate close relationships has deduced that our feelings are interrelated to one’s facial appearance to the extent on even how we think about who they are. A study was conducted in which a few people evaluated a number of women based on their photographs. After a few months, without adding to their knowledge, they were asked to meet and interact and get to know each other. Interestingly, face to face interaction was not able to change the mere judgments that were made by just viewing the photographs.

The evaluations regarding the likability, emotional stability, open-mindedness and conscientious personality did not alter even after they met. The evaluations were carried along. People who liked the photos had a warm and friendly interaction when they were asked to meet. Zayas said, the attractive impression of a person makes us assume about their marriage being stable, and they being socially competent, which are all positive aspects.

The study also showed that the reviewers barely had their views changed as they analyzed the photographs post the meeting.

New Issue :: Current Organic Chemistry 20, Issue 28

Current Organic Chemistry aims to provide in-depth reviews on the current progress in the fields of asymmetric synthesis, organo-metallic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, natural product chemistry and analytical methods in organic chemistry. The frontier reviews provide the current state of knowledge in these fields and are written by chosen experts who are internationally known for their eminent research contributions. The Journal also accepts high quality research papers, highlights and letters besides thematic issues in these fields. Current Organic Chemistry should prove to be of great interest to organic chemists in academia and industry who wish to keep abreast with recent developments in key fields of organic chemistry.

16th Annual Strategic Project & Portfolio Management for Pharma!

16th Annual Strategic Project & Portfolio Management for Pharma on 25-27 January 2017, Barcelona, Spain.

ls155-200-x-200

Build a Solid Portfolio Infrastructure to Adapt to Changes and Prevent Risks, Proceed with the Right Decision, Maximize Value under Tight Budget and Resources, Develop Synergies and Opportunities on New Markets.

As the strategic and operating environment for Pharmaceutical R&D becomes more cost-constrained and evolving portfolios require increasingly more investment, critical decision-making and methodology is evidently a crucial element in PPM.

The conference will look at how to structure portfolio management into the organization, how to transform R&D indicators and PPM parameters into successful revenue producing projects and portfolios that align corporate business goals. This year approach will be both on technical side, on understanding how right processes, realistic analysis and correct interpretation of data can be translated into market success; but also how organizational aspects, how capacity management, leadership skills can build high performing teams and strategic decision making.

Importantly, this conference will not neglect the other essential topics including prioritization, internal resource management, risk management and especially de-risking strategies (partnerships, outsourcing) as main factor of market success, managing pipeline from early stage to commercial stage, with a view on market access and generic portfolio management.

Air Pollution – The Ever-increasing Problem!

There is no doubt we are living in the age of globalization. World is evolving so fast that we have many industries working round the clock. Technology has also developed so rapidly that there is no doubt our lives are now becoming dependent on increasingly complex devices. They make our lives so infinitely easier that we cannot even think of living without it.

There are many benefits one could get from technology and can be seen in everything from electricity to global communications. Despite the advantages all these things lead to environmental pollution. Global warming and other climatic changes are the major consequences of industrialization.
There are various forms of pollution; air pollution which is contamination of air, is one of them. Harmful gases such as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide produced by different means such as factories and motor vehicles contaminate air and make it harder for living beings to survive.  The effects of air pollution are also alarming. Many respiratory diseases are caused by air pollution.  Cancer, lupus, immune diseases, allergies, and asthma are also caused by polluted air. World Health Organization has also pointed out that every year around two million people die prematurely because of contaminated air. It also causes global warming and damages ozone layer. Many things can be done to reduce air pollution such as recycling, use of energy-efficient devices etc. Use of public transportation can also help in reducing air pollution as the number of vehicles on roads will automatically be reduced.

National Pollution Prevention Day!

National Pollution Prevention Day is very important for every one of us to celebrate. Today we focus on the challenges our planet faces at the hands of pollution, whether it is air, water, land or noise pollution. Bentham eBooks publishes important ebooks on these types of pollution and updates our readers about the troubles and their possible remedies.
Read the following books providing in-depth research on the topic:
