One in, one out: Oxford and International academics show how people put a limit on their social networks

Oxford (PRWEB UK) 7 January 2014

Although social communication is now easier than ever, it seems that our capacity for maintaining emotionally close relationships is finite, said Felix Reed-Tsochas, James Martin Lecturer in Complex Systems at Sa?d Business School, University of Oxford. While this number varies from person to person, what holds true in all cases is that at any point individuals are able to keep up close relationships with only a small number of people, so that new friendships come at the expense of relegating existing friends.

The research, The persistence of social signatures in human communication was conducted by an international team that included Felix Reed-Tsochas and Robin Dunbar from the University of Oxford, Dr Sam Roberts from the University of Chester in the UK, and Dr Jari Saram?ki from Aalto University, Finland and is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) today. It combined survey data and detailed data from mobile phone call records that were used to track changes in the communication networks of 24 students in the UK over 18 months as they made the transition from school to university or work.

At the beginning of the study, researchers ranked members of each participants social network (friends and family) according to emotional closeness. They discovered that, in all cases, a small number of top-ranked, emotionally close people received a disproportionately large fraction of calls.

Within this general pattern, however, there was clear individual-level variation. Each participant had a characteristic social signature that depicted their particular way of allocating communication across the members of their social network.

The researchers discovered that, even though participants relationships changed and they made new friends during the intense transition period between school and university or work, individual social signatures remained stable. Participants continued to make the same number of calls to people according to how they ranked for emotional closeness, although the actual people in their social networks and/or their rankings changed over time.

As new network members are added, some old network members are either replaced or receive fewer calls, confirmed Robin Dunbar, Professor of Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Oxford. This is probably due to a combination of limited time available for communication and the great cognitive and emotional effort required to sustain close relationships. It seems that individuals patterns of communication are so prescribed that even the efficiencies provided by some forms of digital communication (in this case, mobile phones) are insufficient to alter them.

Dr Roberts, from the University of Chesters Psychology Department explained: This study used a novel combination of questionnaires and mobile phone data to show that people have a distinctive pattern of communicating with their family and friends, and that this pattern persists even people make new friends as they go to university or work. Our results are likely to reflect limitations in the ability of humans to maintain many emotionally close relationships, both because of limited time and because the emotional capital that individuals can allocate between family members and friends is finite.

Modelling is an Expression of Emotion According to the Latest Model to Grace La Mode London’s Portfolio Pages and their Latest Website Goes Live

London, UK, 3rd September 2012 (PRWEB UK) 3 September 2012

As they promote another successful photo shoot with a stunning new portfolio online, it’s all about expressing an emotion for La Mode’s latest female model.

La Mode London specialises in all sorts of model advice and are the experts in their field. Having recently expanded their offices and set up a brand-new modelling Academy, the team at the commercial photography studio offer all sorts of tips and tricks to models who enter through their doors. One thing that cannot be taught is how to ‘feel,’ according to Helen Smith, director for the company.

“We can teach our models, how to act and we can show them the ropes, but we can’t dictate to them how they are actually feeling,” she explains.” It was wonderfully refreshing to talk to our latest female model, who wanted to update her portfolio with some brand-new images. Melis has wonderful model application and is clearly experienced. She’s not only beautiful on the outside, she has beauty which shines from within and she knows how to show her true emotions.” She goes on to say,” it’s going that one step further for a model, being able to express an emotion which will sell not only the clothes for the designer, but it will sell the model themselves. It makes everything look much more believable”

Melis has worked previously for a selection of both professional and amateur designers. In her leisure time she likes to take a break from modelling, travelling to new places, visiting the cinema, running to keep in shape and reading. When asked why she became a model, Helen was very impressed with her answer.

“She has taken this step to really understand the clothes that she wears and get behind the image the designer wants to portray.”

Melis believes that the modelling experience and standing in front of a professional photographer for a shoot helps define a person, and it is an expression of emotion for her.

“It is not always easy or possible to express what you think or how you feel,” she says.

“When you are standing against a professional photographer, you know that you are you. A single flash will let out all the feelings, the reflection will be seen on the display. When you know this, and you put your heart into your job, any designer will put clothes on you and let you tell people what those clothes meant and why they are designed for. I always felt that, I understand the language of clothes, as well as the language of the designer. This is why I wanted to be a Model.”

Standing at 5 foot 6 with luscious long brown hair and beautiful blue eyes, Melis has a dress size of 8 to 10, UK sizes and a waist of 27 inches. She is interested in all types of modelling work, including advertising and commercial modelling, catalogue fashion editorial, and exhibition and promotional modelling. Her inspirations range between

Ece Sukan, Gisele Bundchen, Sarah Jessica Parker and Betul Mardin.

The commercial photography company at the very heart of modelling in London specialise in model advice and all they can say to their latest signing is to carry on as she is, because she certainly has got not only the beauty, but also the vision to go far in the modelling industry.

Visit and see not only Melis’ new portfolio but others as soon as they arrive at the model advice company and keep up-to-date with all the latest modelling news and information.

Canadian Brothers have begun their epic expedition and film making adventure in India, where they will travel 14,000km over 60 days around India.

New Delhi, India (PRWEB) August 31, 2012

Canadian adventurers and television presenters, Colin Pyle and Ryan Pyle, have just left on their first day of riding on what is turning out to be another epic adventure television production. After their successful Middle Kingdom Ride around China in 2010, Colin and Ryan have, this time, set their sites on India. Today they have covered about 350km and headed form Delhi north in to the Himalayan mountain range for the first leg of their journey. Their 60 day television production, which has just begun, will cover 14,000km and be a complete circumnavigation around India exposing them through some of the most populated and remote regions on the plant.

Together Colin and Ryan will encounter heavy rains, flooding, landslides, freak hailstorms, extreme altitude (above 5000m/16,000ft), sand, gravel and road construction. They will test their own personal physical and mental limits as they film their television series under challenging conditions.

Colin and Ryan Pyle are brothers from Toronto, Canada. But thats about all they have in common. Ryan has spent the last decade in China building his career as a Documentary Photographer. Colin stayed closer to home, in Toronto, and built up, and sold, his own successful currency trading company. Together they plan to showcase much of Indias change and development. The general purpose of the trip is to put India on display. To explore the visual and cultural wonders that is India. With a massive population, crowded cities, abundant minorities and its stunning natural landscape; India offers a traveler an experience like no other. Colin and Ryan have titled their project, The Inida Ride.

Colin and Ryan will produce both a television series and a written book on their experiences in India, which will hope to be both entertaining and motivating, as these brothers will have to overcome challenges on a daily basis to ensure they complete their journey safely. Anytime someone puts him or herself out there, into the wild, and opens themselves up to the experiences of such a vast and unique country one cant help but encounter moments of danger, humor, sadness, gratification and personal gain and setback. Their journey will prove to be both colorful and dramatic, both intense and fulfilling.

You can follow The India Ride at, Facebook, Vimeo and Twitter.

The India Ride would not be possible without our amazing sponsors: Mandarin House Language School, REVIT Clothing, HULT International Business School, Zenith Watches, TAG Heuer Eyewear, Cardo Scala Rider, ThermaHelm Halo Motorcycle Helmets, The Westin Gurgaon, Mountain Dew and Lenovo.

To learn more about previous productions by Colin Pyle and Ryan Pyle you can visit their production company website G219 Productions. Their last production was a Guinness World Record setting adventure in 2010 for their Middle Kingdom Ride, which was a 65 day 18,000km motorcycle expedition around China. Their 6x30min television series will be aired in late 2012, and their book will be available by the end of August 2012. You can learn more about that production at: website

Leggett Immobilier’s Alps Team Offer their Top Ten Reasons to Buy in the Alps this Summer

(PRWEB) August 24, 2012

A ski chalet or apartment is not just for Christmas! Leggett Immobilier’s Alps team offer their top ten reasons why you might consider buying an alpine property for the summer as well as winter.

1. Fantastic climate for an outdoors lifestyle – snow sure in winter and warm and sunny in summer. Fantastic food with a wide choice of properties to suit all tastes and budgets. New build apartments to 150 year-old barns, luxury chalets to ‘belle-epoque’ stone town houses. Low-valley towns offer wonderful year round living, something often unknown to Brits and other foreigners who think the Alps shut-down in April

2. Strong property market – even in a down-turn, properties have maintained their values – an excellent investment opportunity.

3. Unique identity; very much the Alps, not just another region in France. Amazing environment to enjoy the good life, views, fresh air, good food, great activities.

4. Biking, hiking, canyoning, rafting, zip wiring, paragliding, horse trekking, white water rafting to enjoy in the summer month. The mountains and valleys make for great biking routes both off and on road. Not all about adrenaline though, with many other extra-curricular activities for businesses to focus on. Golf, cookery, painting, road-trips for bikes and classic cars, hot-air ballooning for example.

5. Excellent rental potential during the winter can also be capitalized upon in the summer as well as more and more people are realising the benefits of holidaying in the Alps.

6. Several of France’s largest lakes are all within 30 minutes to an hour of most of the ski resorts adding an extra dimension to life in the Alps. These lakes are large enough to sail on and swimming is a pleasure in the fresh mountain water warmed nicely in the summer sun. Perfect combination of hot sunny days and pure mountain air for a perfect nights sleep.

8. Traditionally younger, more outdoors orientated, multi-national ex-pat community, often with kids. Very much the case that it is not simply British and not just retirees. More opportunity to make friends of a similar age/mind-set.

9. Train journeys through the spectacular snow capped mountain ranges passing glaciers, pristine turquoise lakes and glistening waterfalls. Medieval cities to explore.

10. Excellent travel links with the area serviced by three international airports: Geneva, Grenoble, Lyon. Easy drive to three great cultural cities: Milan, Lyon and Geneva. International job opportunities available in Geneva, just 45mins drive from Chamonix/PdS and just 20mins from Annecy. For some it is ‘commutable’ from the UK, but at the very least offers easy access for weekend trips, ensuring best use of a ‘second home’. Close to Italy and Switzerland for a true variety of style, culture and atmosphere, whether attending the Classical festival in Verbier or Skiing in Courmayeur.

Executive Search Consultant Expands Career Coaching Services, Stresses Their Importance in Uncertain Economic Times

Sydney (PRWEB) July 06, 2012

Whilst no one can predict when the end to the global financial crisis will come, senior executives should be among those who have the foresight to plan in advance. Kylie Hammond, principal of Kylie Hammond Executive Search and Talent Management Consultancy has announced the expansion of her career coaching business to assist those planning for a career change, and being prepared for unexpected events like redundancy. Kylie explained that she has helped executives at all levels change careers, achieve promotions, negotiate improved salary packages and implement work life balance strategies which make a significant difference.

My team of personally chosen Executive Career Coaches and I work closely with all executives on career related issues. We tailor our services to the individual and offer coaching services in a range of areas including: creating and executing a career progression or career change strategy; managing the challenges of a new position or promotion, re-entering the workplace after a career break; managing career transition following redundancy; and career management techniques and identifying opportunities, she continued.

The Importance of Career Coaching

Asked about the importance of career coaching, Kylie replied that there are a number of basic career principles that should be followed which include:

????Plan in advance – conduct thorough research and formulate a plan before taking any action, and quit the current job.
????Consider every element of a potential new career and assess whether one is really equipped for the role.
????Take the time to reflect on what one wants and why one wants to change. Starting a new career simply because one hates his job or needs a quick fix is never a smart thing to do.
????Dont let money be the main motivator. One of the worst things one can do is change careers based on money. Although it can be motivating, its not what should drive ones passions or true goals.
????Get professional help. A career is such a huge part of ones life, and changing it without professional assistance could be a big mistake.

Career coaching can be useful, particularly if you are considering changing careers, and can help you explore the positives and negatives of your decision, both in the short and long term. We offer a range of career coaching packages suitable for all executives, as well as Outplacement for Executives for that unexpected situation, Hammond aptly concluded.

For anyone thinking of changing careers, consulting a career coach or mentor as soon as possible is best.The career coaching services at Kylie Hammond Executive Search and Talent Management helps many people shape their careers and transform their futures.
