Victoria Dougherty comes from the ultimate Cold War family – daring escapes, backyard firing squads, communist snitches, bowlfuls of goulash, gargoyles, gray skies and bone-chilling winters. In Cold, Dougherty writes essays with humor and raw soul. About the heart-rending stories she grew up hearing at her dinner table and the two-hanky drama that played on in her home. She ponders how her family’s bad luck - so bad her parents dubbed it a curse - against all reason became a force for good in her life.
El Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way, is the fabled path that weaves through French and Spanish countryside for 1,000 miles to its hallowed destination at Santiago de Compostella. Thousands attempt to walk its entirety each year: some succeed, many fail. Keith Foskett thru-hiked the Camino to indulge his love for the outdoors and hiking but it also, unintentionally, filled a void in his life which took him in a completely different direction. Along the way he made friends with fellow pilgrims from all over the world, all travelling for their own different reasons. He was assailed by new experiences and unexpected discoveries - from the pain of blisters and extremes of temperature to encountering kleptomaniacs, fake faith healers and being threatened with arrest in Spain for 'not sleeping'. This is the story of one man's walk, but it speaks to all who see life itself as a journey and are alive to the revelations that an escape to nature can bring. Written with insight, observation and a healthy dose of humour. As this book shows, it is rarely the start and the finish that count, but the journey in between.
"A fun and breezy reminder that a lot of talent and a little luck can be a powerful force." In this collection of entertaining anecdotes, Edward Faine celebrates the role luck has played in the creation of many of our beloved songs. Favorites like "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," "Blue Skies," "Strangers in the Night," "Time in a Bottle," and many others came about through "happy accidents," that mysterious blend of circumstance and chance. With his signature turn of phrase and wit, Faine brings the backstories alive, inspiring us to revisit many of the popular songs of the past or become acquainted with them for the first time.
"After surviving the cruel rage of tyranny from her mother and ex-husband, Sarah Jackson traveled a new path; a journey of loss, heartbreak, and ultimately strength. How do we survive the unthinkable, our child suffering from a terminal illness? They say there is no greater loss than that of a child; I say losing a child is the King of Loss. Sometimes the thing that helps us survive it, is knowing we are not alone. Bestselling author, Sarah Jackson, will take you on her journey of hope and strength as she provides an intimate raw look at her life." "I want to go to Heaven, Mom" he said innocently. Behind those blue eyes, I didn't see a speck of fear. And for a while I wondered where he got the concept of Heaven. I wanted to cry because I didn't want him to go just yet. Not now. Not in a few months. Certainly never before me, not if I could help it! So I told him softly, "We don't always get what we want in life. So you might have to stay with Mom for a while." I knew not what to say next so we prayed together. I kept praying as Eli was given light sedation before surgery and they finally wheeled him away to the operating room at around 2 PM. I lost my chance to ask Eli what he knew of Heaven. Why didn't I ask Eli? Why didn't I ask Eli what he knew of Jesus? My heart broke as I cried. Eli wanted to go to Heaven! How did my five year old little boy know of Heaven when I refused to tell him much of Heaven for had I done so, just talking about it, would make Eli dying to ...
This new book is about teensy-weensy firecracker love... love that, when ignited, produces a burst of fireworks and lights up someone’s dark night. It’s about feet-on-the-ground, sky’s-the-limit, life-changing, world-engaging, mustard-seed love that grows from a hunch, an idea, a nudging from above—and then blossoms in the willingness of a heart to act on its sometimes-wobbly faith. Such audacious, underestimated love—like the little engine that could from childhood—just keeps chugging along over “impossible” hills, shrugging off the naysayers, imagining the view from the top. The difference is: this tenacity in the human heart is what turns seeming underdogs and ragamuffins like ourselves into influencers and game-changers, right in our own communities, workplaces, homes . . . or wherever we go in the world. May Pamela Capone’s often-hilarious observations and always-engaging experiences put a little fuel in your tank to help you get up and over, so you can see that all things are indeed possible . . . if you believe that Love can. By day, a self-professed professional unpaid people watcher and evidence gatherer, and by night, an insomniac dot connector, Pamela Capone lives in Southern California with her husband, John. They have two fabulous adult children together, Joey and Cassie, and one phenomenal grandson, Brooks.
These connections between ideal and reality, and how to bridge the common gaps between the two, is what sets Ambition's lessons and approaches above other motivational business books. Examples come from both real world scenarios and Cheryl Johnson's own life, adding concrete details on exactly how to create the type of 'culture of learning' promoted in Ambition. Examples range from problem-solving strategies to creating custom learning paths for individuals. These provide clear routines any employer can utilize to best advantage. Even more important are Johnson's explorations of workplace coaching methods, which contrast their success with online and classroom learning. As chapters cover the basics of promoting resilience, cooperation, and creative problem-solving to support ambition in the workplace, managers receive a key tool to success unparalleled in other business managerial tutorials. Any employer interested in taking the next step into employee satisfaction and motivation should consider the impact of Ambition. With its clear directions, links to real-world scenarios of interaction and learning, and case histories with black and white illustrations peppered throughout, it's easy to digest, yet packed with important details managers need to know. - D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review
This book unveils an amazing theory. Our lives have five dimensions that are essential for living a healthy, successful, and tranquil existence. These are our financial, social, internal, physical, and spiritual affairs. This book offers insight into helping us recognize the five life dimensions. It will teach us how to bring these dimensions into balance. We cannot reach our potential as individuals unless all five of these life dimensions are balanced. If we neglect any one of them, the ensuing disharmony destroys our tranquility and can wreck our lives. The 5 Essential Dimensions is an attempt to prevent this happening.
In his 1858 campaign notebook, Abraham Lincoln opens a revealing window onto his antebellum political thinking about emancipation, abolition, and black social and political equality. During the heat of his celebrated contest with Senator Stephen A. Douglas, Lincoln compiled a pocket memorandum book addressing not just slavery but "the substance of all I have ever said about 'negro equality'"—the issue of how blacks might fit into American society once freed. The resulting notebook consists of newspaper clippings that Lincoln selected from his speeches in response to the Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854) and the Dred Scott decision (1857), and from the legendary debates themselves. Lincoln on "Negro Equality" provides a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary on the clippings, considering the content of the notebook within the political climate of the times, and it contrasts Lincoln's views on racial equality as a senatorial candidate for the new Republican Party in 1858 with his actions as Civil War president (1861-1865). Appendices provide the transcribed text of the clippings and Lincoln's handwritten summary of them; a guide to the contemporary sources for Lincoln's selected extracts that are available online; and a brief history of the physical notebook, housed in The Huntington Library.

And how can you avoid wasting precious time?The book ‘The 4 Foundations of Love’ is based on a fascinating study, in which a great number of successful couples were interviewed for one purpose: to capture the essence of their unique relationship - what makes them keep loving their partner years after they have met, or even love them more.

For example, the private interview that I had with John Lennon and Yoko Ono in Toronto, another private interview with Isaac Asimov and one with Alison Steele, the very famous “girl” radio DJ in New York City known simply as “The Nightbird” and an embarrassing moment with Jacqueline Susann, the writer of "Valley of the Dolls." The world of TV shrinks is also revealed as only someone who has been there can do it.
I’m not the Gwyneth Paltrow kind of writer. To read this book, you will not have to eradicate all traces of intelligence from that potato of a head, just to try to digest a bunch of new age woo-woo b*llocks. Nope - the sh*t I will share in the following pages really f*cking works, and you don’t need crystals or to be in touch with the spirit of a Native American dream walker to appreciate the difference it’ll make. Maybe a few of them could cause you to briefly question my/your sanity, but don’t all the best experiences in life make you do that? Ok, not all of them. But a few of the REALLY cool ones that also might involve sh*t like ancient ninja swords, velociraptors, V8 engines, copious amounts of alcohol and waking up in a foreign country wearing a clown outfit? Well, THAT kind do, don’t they? We don’t normally think of our brains as a part of the anatomy that needs exercising, as it’s processing sh*t all the time, isn’t it? Discover why that lump of grey goo between your ears needs as much attention as the rest of your anatomy, and how to do it - the easy (and sometimes surreal) way.

Flight of the Forgotten is the true story of one of the most closely-guarded American military secrets of all time. It is intriguing, controversial and thought-provoking. The story traverses 50 years, two generations and the realities of our physical world. The triggering event is the tragic loss of an American Eighth Air Force bomber crew in 1945 under mysterious circumstances while en-route home after the end of World War II. The loss represents a 50-year-old aviation mystery, officially "forgotten" by the United States Government. Details described and amplified within the story remain permanently "buried" inside a top-secret O.S.S. file to this day. This book is a public counter to official efforts by the United States Government to have the events permanently erased from the public record. The author's extensive research indicates that those events involve murder, conspiracy and sabotage by the O.S.S., the forerunner to the modern CIA.
When it comes to college football, there are fans and there are fanatics. Destined by geography and family tradition to latch onto the Arkansas Razorbacks, Blant Hurt is of the second type. Like most devotees, he was captivated by his love of his team at an early age. But unlike more casual fans, Hurt found himself attaching what some might call “outsize life importance” to the fortunes of the Razorbacks —a team which, like his own life, had a habit of going in directions that he did not foresee. In this remarkably candid, funny, and introspective memoir, Blant Hurt recounts his half-century as the most zealous of college football fans. Beginning with the so-called Game of the Century when he was nine-years old, he tells how this enduring passion has colored his relationships with his family and friends, shaped his romances, and, for better or worse, marked every era of his life—indeed, marked his sense of life itself. A self-described “literary man,” Hurt draws on his love of narrative and storytelling to drill down deep inside himself and examine the soul of a college football fanatic. Not the Seasons I Expected is that rare “sports” book that focuses on the hopes and dreams of the people in the bleachers, rather than the ones on the playing field. As such, it’s sure to speak to delirious/heartbroken fans everywhere.

When tragedy unexpectedly hits, Catherine's world is turned upside down and the course of her life is forever changed. In this heartbreakingly powerful memoir, Catherine goes back to where it all began. Following the tragic death of one of her parents at the age of three, she is sent to live with an Aunt and Uncle. This is where the cycle of her abuse begins. As she makes her way in the world, the sexual violation she endured at the hands of her uncle shapes her and how she sees herself.

It is better to travel than to arrive. So the saying goes. And Paula DiPerna is a seasoned traveller. Been there. Done that. A modern Marco Polo. But suddenly in 2017 she finds herself in unknown territory. Uncharted waters. Floundering without a map. And where no digital technology can help her. Where is she? She is in flight from her beloved New York. In flight from America. In flight from the chaos of the Presidency of Donald Trump. DiPerna’s is the tale of how a nation sleepwalked into what to many people around the world now see as a political nightmare, starting first in the broken town of Scranton, Pennsylvania, where DiPerna campaigned for Hillary Clinton, hoping against hope. It is a tale of incredulity seen not only through the eyes of an educated, American professional but also through the eyes of taxi drivers, hotel clerks, waitresses and shopkeepers, all wondering what could have happened to the USA. In Cape Town. In Beijing. In Berlin. It is a tale of a world gone crazy. And it begs the question: what do we do now? DiPerna does indeed arrive – with a bump. ‘My journey had played fast and loose with time zones and lounges as I ice-skated along on the surface of each day, dabbling in silly luxuries, all transient. And yet, on the road, I could see even more clearly that resistance to mediocrity and rebuilding of the idea of common good is urgent.’ Paula DiPerna’s incisive Travels in the Time of Trump puts much-needed distance and time between cataclysmic events to ...

Book description: In recent years, there has been a whole new understanding of what stress is. This book is a summary of this knowledge that outlines the medical, psychological and workplace aspects of stress. It deals with many myths and presents the latest research in an easily understandable way. The book describes when and how stress can be harmful – so-called toxic stress – and summarizes new and old methods of prevention and treatment. Toxic stress may be triggered by both physical and psychosocial trauma. It also describes positive stress, which can be beneficial in both the short and long term. New research has revealed what happens to our brain when we are being subjected to harmful stress. This knowledge presents new ways of treating and preventing stress for the individual, for stress therapists and for society. The book also describes how stress – for good and bad – is an example of the close biological relationship between our minds and our physical bodies. This relationship is not only governed by hormones and inherited animal patterns but is also highly related to social learning, thought and our individual reality.

Understand History's Most Enigmatic Serial Killer
In December of 1968, a serial killer began orchestrating a campaign of terror in the San Francisco Bay Area. Not satisfied with the simple act of murder, he taunted law enforcement and the public by writing letters to local newspapers. Through often cryptic and bizarre content including four ciphers, three (now two) of which have never been solved the psychopath played a twisted game. Reporters dubbed the man the "Cipher Killer," but the murderer chose a different name for himself: the Zodiac. Eventually, he would claim to have murdered thirty-seven. Law enforcement, however, could only account for five.
In 1971, authenticated communications with the Zodiac ceased. The elusive fugitive resurfaced briefly three years later, sending a small number of communiques, before disappearing for good. What started out with shocking abruptness slowly dissolved into mysterious uncertainty. To this day, the Zodiac's true identity remains one of the twentieth century's greatest mysteries...
In Volume 1 of The Zodiac Revisited, Michael reviews the facts of the case, building a foundation for the analysis that follows in Volumes 2 and 3.

The 2008 recession hits. The US economy goes belly-up and sentences a young generation to wayward lives. With nothing to lose, Lance Pototschnik and his best friend, Jackson Greenly, decide to go for their artist dreams. Lance begins a grassroots initiative to sell an original screenplay to Hollywood. He lives out of a rental car and travels the country filming strangers' street auditions, hoping to generate enough interest on social media to dragoon a production deal. Jackson goes to art school, where he is inspired to make the perfect painting: one with the power to shoot a person dead. Hollywood Ending is a shotgun-seat view of the awkward, hilarious places dreams can lead us. But this book is so much more than a laugh-out-loud ride beside the author. Pototschnik is a self-aware witness to his own crazy journey, and to the possessory effects dissipated art and media saturation have had on him, and on his dreams. Here, he turns his keen powers of observation on a couple of life’s deepest questions: Why do we think what we think? Why do we want what we want? This is required reading for those who get the ineffable sense that the world is going to hell in a hilarious handbasket.

A True Story about how an Inmate in a Nazi Death Camp by the name of Wild Bill Cody - Thrived! I first heard this story from my friend, Dr. Michael Ryce, who said he read it in the book The Gentle Art of Blessing by Pierre Pradervand. I contacted Pierre, and he told me he read the story in the book, Return From Tomorrow, by Ritchie/Sherrill. I got both books to start my research on this magnificent man because his story was very intriguing to me.
First, some background information: While in the Navy, before I turned 21, I went through a Simulated POW Camp for Navy men who had a chance of being captured in Vietnam. After going through the Simulated Camp, I became one of the Instructors. I became an expert at performing Interrogations, Indoctrinations, and giving Impassioned Hate Speeches reminiscent of those given by Hitler that Brainwashed millions of Germans. I was amazed at how easy it was to brainwash people, even in a simulated situation.
Years later I was introduced to the story of Viktor Frankl, the renowned Holocaust Survivor and author of Man’s Search for Meaning. I am now helping to see his dream of a Statue of Responsibility as a companion to the Statue of Liberty come true. I was also guided to another fascinating De ...
Every year several thousand people attempt to hike all 2180 miles of the Appalachian Trail in the eastern United States. Being the first of the big three hikes in America, it is where long-distance hikers go to cut their teeth. Keith Foskett has another reason. Dromomania, or the uncontrollable urge to wander, has been part of his life since childhood. Hiking is his chosen method to placate the wanderlust. Accompanied by an array of eclectic characters including a world champion juggler, a drug dealer, an Everton fan whose visa is expiring and a sex-starved builder from Minnesota, his experience is far from normal. Battling a fear of snakes, bears, being in the woods after dark and his own demons, it's physically exhausting -- as well as a psychologically challenging. His adventure weaves a route through some of America's wildest landscapes and history, and is told with insight, humour and reflection.
Christian nonfiction exploring the biblical details of God's prophetic calendar, Passover, Easter, the Mosaic Law vs. the Covenant of Grace, events surrounding the Crucifixion Week, and the Resurrection of Jesus. As Jesus exhaled His last breath, the Temple Veil was violently ripped apart by God to allow everyone access into the Holy of Holies through Christ's blood. After three days in a cold, dark grave, Jesus resurrected triumphantly over death. Most Christians are aware of the basics, but did you know all of these events were meticulously detailed in O.T. analogies, including the exact dates of Jesus' death and resurrection? Jesus Unveiled reveals * Why creation's calendar predicted Adam's fall and had to be reset before Christ's incarnation * What Noah's Ark landing on Mt. Ararat has to do with the resurrection * How Judas's betrayal was foreshadowed in the Book of Esther to the exact day * Why Pharaoh's army drowned at sunrise * How the first and last Passover breads reveal the covenants of Law and Grace, and much more... Like a beautiful Monet, appreciate the finer portrait of Jesus by drawing nearer to explore the tiny brushstrokes of our Father's love painted over centuries that finally reveal Jesus Unveiled.
As a young man I traveled to West Africa in search of my identity. I am a man of color, who was born in England. I visited West Africa in the mid-seventies before that area exploded into violence, and witnessed the displacement of its people. My adventure lasted 18 months, and covered the countries of Algeria, Mali, Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta), Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia and Sierra Leone. An adventure like this probably couldn’t happen today. The desert has encroached on the south, and poverty has forced the increased migration of peoples from the savannah areas to the coastal countries... The journey I went through represented a coming of age that tested my young manhood. The stories in this book are intended to open people’s eyes to the real Africa. It is my intention to present a story to you, my readers, that will offer you a visceral experience of being with me on the mammy wagons charging through the forests. To have you sitting by my side as we hurtle across the Savannah landscape. To have you feel the suffocating heat in the swamplands of Sierra Leone. To take you to the humanity of the people I encountered on this journey. In so doing, I hope you will connect to and strengthen your own humanity. And perhaps in a small way this story will make all who read it a little more open and human. Such is the first step for all of us in finding ourselves, and some peace in this world today.
On a September morning in 1948 - while a member of the U.S. Olympic team, a Howard University student, and a veteran of World War 2 - Norvel Lee was arrested for taking a seat in the white section of a segregated train in rural Virginia. Thorough research of the facts about Jim Crow laws shows that Norvel Lee's appeal of the case resulted in a landmark civil rights decision. Norvel Lee spent his childhood in a rustic, segregated Black community nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. His father was a day laborer for the railroad while his mother expected her children to get an education and become involved in community affairs. In spite of obstacles such as Virginia's Jim Crow laws, limited schooling opportunities, and a speech impediment, Norvel's life journey led to exceptional accomplishments in the larger world. Among those accomplishments were becoming a member of the 1948 and 1952 U.S. Olympic teams, making history at the 1952 Helsinki Games. Afterward he received several post-graduate degrees. While raising and empowering their family Norvel and his wife then dedicated their lives to educating and mentoring young people and contributing tirelessly to community outreach organizations in the Washington D.C. area. He also served as a senior officer with the U.S. Air Force Reserve. Norvel Lee was truly an unsung hero who deserves recognition as a civil rights leader who made a profound difference in people's lives. Based on true events, NORVEL is a meticulously re ...
