    Book summary:

    David Niven is remembered as one of Britain's best-loved actors. The archetypal English gentleman, he starred in over ninety films. He is also one of Hollywood's finest chroniclers. In this second volume, David Niven turns his attention to 'The Great Days of Hollywood' between 1935 and 1960. These were times of legendary film stars and despotic producers, of tycoons, of oddballs, and of classic movies. Rich in anecdote, and written in his inimitable humorous style, BRING ON THE EMPTY HORSES is perhaps the most acclaimed sequel to an autobiography ever written.

    La Ciencia de una Vida Saludable

    ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre las personas que se sienten y se ven saludables, y las que están cansadas o deprimidas y jamás están en forma? A diario enfrentamos una cantidad alarmante de estudios y estadísticas que nos dicen qué debemos y no debemos comer, cuánto tiempo tenemos que hacer ejercicio o cómo protegernos del humo de segunda mano y los dañinos rayos del sol. Pero estos estudios, además de ser contradictorios, suelen tener información científica literalmente incomprensible para el lector común.

    En este libro, David Niven nos hace el favor de resumir los millones de estudios que se han hecho acerca de la salud del ser humano, y de convertirlos en cien fáciles puntos que nos ayudarán a vivir más saludables y felices. Desmontando mitos comunes con consejos reales y aplicables, Niven nos explica la importancia de estos descubrimientos.

    • Coma con frecuencia. Los investigadores de la universidad Oxford hallaron que las personas que comen cinco o seis veces al día tienen un 5 por ciento menos de colesterol que la persona media, y tienen un 45 por ciento más de posibilidades de mantener su peso ideal que las personas que sólo comen una o dos veces al día.

    • ¿Quién dice que la cafeína es mala para la salud? La mayoría de los resultados científicos prueban que, para un adulto saludable, cantidades moderadas de cafeína (aproximadamente tres tazas de café al día) no presentan ningún riesgo a la salud.

    • Hogar, dulce hogar. Según un estudio de la Universidad de California en Los Ángeles, aquellas personas que dicen tener una vida de hogar satisfactoria tienen un 24 por ciento más de posibilidades de vivir más que la expectativa normal de vida.

    Book summary:

    The Pirelli Calendar is a trade calendar published by the Pirelli Tire Company's UK subsidiary. It has become an annual publication that dates back to 1964. The calendar is famous for its limited availability, as it is only given as a corporate gift to a restricted number of important Pirelli customers and celebrity VIPs. The Pirelli Calendar pictures are generally considered glamour photography including artistic nudes. Publication was discontinued after the 1974 issue as an economising cut-back in response to the world recession from the oil shock. It was resurrected 10 years later and has been published regularly since then. This book was published in 1975 after the calendar was discontinued and they thought there would be no more done. The book is divided by year. The photographers and locations for this time period are as follows - 1964: Robert Freeman in Majorca, Spain - 1965: Brian Duffy in the south of France - 1966: Peter Knapp in Al Hoceima, Morocco - 1967: No calendar was done - 1968: Harry Peccinotti in tunisia - 1969: Harry Peccinotti in Big Sur, California, USA - 1970: Francis Giacobetti on Paradise Island, The Bahamas - 1971: Francis Giacobetti in Jamaica - 1972: Sarah Moon at the Villa Les Tilleuls, Paris - 1973: Brian Duffy in London, England - 1974: Hans Feurer in the Seychelle Islands. These calendars have made many models and photographers famous.

    La Ciencia de ser una Pareja Feliz

    ¿Qué cosas hacen que una pareja sea feliz? Los científicos y académicos han pasado años investigando la naturaleza de las relaciones, los noviazgos, y el matrimonio, pero sus hallazgos tienden a quedar escondidas en diversas publicaciones académicas, sin jamás llegar al alcance de la gente común. Por eso, el aclamado autor de Los 100 Secretos de la Gente Feliz ha recolectado la información más significativa y reciente de los miles de estudios que se han hecho acerca de las relaciones, y la presenta de una manera clara y fácil de comprender.

    Los consejos aquí contenidos no están basados en la experiencia o las opiniones de una persona en particular. Están basados en las investigaciones de reconocidos científicos que estudias las vidas y los amores de los estadounidenses. Cada uno de los 100 secretos va ilustrado por una historieta que lo justifica.

    • El amor es difícil de calcular. Los investigadores han comprobado de la edad, el presupuesto, la educación y la religión de una persona no tienen nada que ver con el nivel de satisfacción de una persona en una relación.

    • El siempre querer ganar puede llevar a una gran pérdida. La gente que tiene un sentimiento de competitividad con su pareja, tienen 37 por ciento menos de posibilidades de sentir que están en una relación que los satisface.

    • Deje el pasado en el pasado. Más de 40 por ciento de la gente reporta que los celos de una relación previa es una fuente de desacuerdo en la relación actual.

    Book summary:

    This examination of the causes, severity, and implications of racially stereotyped media coverage of Congress incorporates original analysis of congressional media coverage and interviews with congressional press staff. The news media often portray African-American members as being primarily interested in race, overly concerned with local matters, and wielding little legislative influence. By contrast, the images African-American members attempt to project of themselves are more complex and comprehensive than the images the media communicate. The authors offer a psychological explanation for this phenomenon, the Distribution Effect, in which those who are numerically rare in an occupation tend to be lumped together rather than treated as individuals. Their findings suggest that it is the media, rather than members of Congress, who are responsible for the racialized images that appear regularly in the press. This results in an advantage for white incumbents trying to attract votes but presents an obstacle to be overcome for African-American politicians.

    This study will appeal to political science, media studies, and racial studies scholars. It incorporates content analysis of the newest forum of communication, congressional Internet web sites, to disclose how white and African-American representatives in fact have similar media priorities.

    Book summary:

    Nine in ten Americans believe the media are biased. Trust in journalists ranks beneath that in lawyers, and even the media themselves regularly portray their own industry as slanted toward Democrats and liberals. These perceptions, however, do not coincide with reality, as David Niven reveals in his bold new take on an often-debated subject. Tilt? The Search for Media BiaS≪/i> presents the first comprehensive review of the charges, the evidence, and the effects, beginning with a simple but altogether overlooked premise: to measure media bias or fairness, one has to have a fair baseline with which to compare coverage. Using situations in which presidents, governors, mayors, and members of Congress from different political parties have produced the same results in office, Tilt? compares media coverage of Democrats and Republicans in situations in which they clearly deserved equal treatment.

    The lack of evidence for partisan media bias is only part of the story. The media cover allegations of bias as if their industry has already been tried and convicted, while the American people readily accepted the premise that their main sources of information are selfishly slanted toward reporters' personal political agendas. Niven's findings, unmistakable and consistent, reveal that when the output of politicians is the same, media coverage followsa conclusion that is as provocative as it is timely and necessary.
