GPS for Success & Happiness is based on the author's personal learning, application and experience by living his life guided closely by the Eight Fold Paths as taught by the Buddha. One has found them to be powerful and effective in leading one's life in a more simplistic and harmonious manner. Although one can't claim to have been a perfect practitioner, one has benefitted tremendously by following these paths. Being aware that religions, while being good and useful for humans, one is also aware that religions can be very personal and divisive. Thus, one has to qualify that right understanding of the Buddha's teaching is crucial. From my personal understanding, the Buddha has never shared his Enlightenment as a religion. He has taught them as the way of life that can help cease sufferings and thus gain purpose and happiness in life. GPS for Success & Happiness is written for people who are willing to open their mind and have the desire to be successful and happy. Just as a GPS will lead us to our destination once we set its location points, the contents of this book will guide the readers to reach his or her life goals once they have determined them. Just as success is different thing to different people, the contributors for happiness are different for different people. However, the universal laws for success and happiness have been found to be consistent and common for all. Infringement of any of the universal laws will without a doubt lead to some forms of unhappiness. Thus, it is my desire that by sharing my personal observations and experiences in my personal life guided by these laws will help enable my fellow humans to experience their own success and enjoy their own happiness. In this materialistic world of ours, I have observed that most people have lost the understanding of what success is and how to be happy. Thus, it is aspired that these eight universal laws which has provided the paths to help millions of people live more successful and happier lives will continue to make more people ease their sufferings and live more successful and happier lives. The formulae for success and happiness extolled in this book are simple to understand and practice and as we all are aware, for us to be successful and happy, we must, apart from knowing and having the knowledge, take the necessary actions to convert our desires to reality. In short, we must BE, DO and HAVE. Let this GPS guide you to your destiny of success, whatever success is to you, and enjoy your happiness your way.

Workload and other constraints prevent General Practitioners from accessing medical evidence for clinical decisions. This problem was studied in New Zealand GPs using Optimal Foraging Theory developed in ecology. GPs' information search strategies were modelled as sequential steps associated with costs and benefits measured from logbooks of actual searches. By consulting the most profitable sources, switching sources when unsuccessful, and double checking, GPs seem close to an optimal trade-off between maximizing search success and information reliability, and minimizing searching time. Subsidised training in information searching and provision of a literature search service are two inferred avenues to access medical evidence.

What is the relationship between general practitioners (GPs) and hospital consultants in the United Kingdom? How does government health policy impact upon GPs and hospital consultants? What influence does the medical profession have upon policy makers in the United Kingdom? The medical profession occupies a dominant position within the British health care system and as such is able to influence the development and implementation of health policy. The main division within the medical profession lies between general practitioners and hospital consultants.This book provides a comprehensive analysis of British health policy over the past twenty-five years. Drawing on data from case studies, it provides empirical evidence of the impact of recent health policies upon the National Health Service (in general) and the medical profession (in particular). The case studies provide an analysis of the impact of the 1991 NHS reforms, as well as examining the ongoing influence of the post 1999 NHS reforms upon these intraprofessional relations. What emerges is that the relationship between GPs and hospital consultants is transforming from a collegial to a more managerial relationship. This book sheds light on the resulting development of intraprofessional relations between GPs and hospital consultants within the NHS. Restructuring the Medical Profession is key reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and professionals in the fields of social policy and health policy. It is also of interest to health service practitioners, health service researchers and health policy makers.
