Most people receive very little training on how to live effectively and harmoniously with themselves and others. This I believe is an unfortunate outcome of our parenting beliefs and methods [that] emphasize academic and vocational skills and place little or no emphasis or value on providing a person with the essential skills to live a life of personal fulfillment, contribution and self actualization.… Without proper training on how to make wise choices in one’s life, the chances are very slim anyone will make them.
A great deal of uncertainty and insecurity for kids can be caused when parents are constantly arguing, disagreeing in response to kids requests, and allowing a child to play one parent against the other. A few years ago, I was involved with just such a family dynamic. The teenage son, Roy, had acted out self-destructively. The adults in the household were highly intelligent, super-competitive, type A professionals. Unfortunately, in front of their children, they were always competing with each other, and each of them always had to be right.
You can create outgoing messages in various waysby clicking New
Message or Forward in the toolbar, for example, or by replying (see Reply to Messages). In every case, the
message needs one or more addresses, which I discuss in this
When addressing an outgoing email message, you can, of course,
simply type email addresses into the provided address fields (To and Cc).
However, you may wish to easily enter email addresses that you have not
memorized and you may wish to display the hidden address fields, Bcc and
Reply-To. In this section, I explain how to handle each of these
addressing scenarios, and I discuss sending email to groups.
At the end of this section, in Choose an Account to Send
From, I look at how to change the address from which you send your
message, something you'll likely need to know how to do if you have more
than one email account configured in Mail.
Mail relies on the system-wide Address Book to store frequently
used email addresses. If you haven't already filled in your Address Book
with your most frequently used email addresses, consider doing soit

We investigate the almost surely asymptotic stability of gene regulatory networks
(GRNs) with Markovian switching. Previous research has described GRNs as coupled nonlinear stochastic systems under parametric perturbations without considering the important aspect of diﬀerent time-delays in the subsystems. However, a realistic model of a GRN is that of a hybrid stochastic retarded system that represents a complex nonlinear dynamical system including mode-dependent time delays and Markovian jumping as well as noise ﬂuctuations. In this paper, we interpret GRNs as hybrid stochastic retarded systems and prove their almost surely asymptotical stability and give upper bounds of derivatives of time delays of the subsystems. The theoretical results are elucidated in an illustrative example and thus shown how they can be applied to reverse engineering design.
