Da Vinci's REAL Hidden Secrets: Seminar on 'Paradise Lost' by L. A. Braun 1.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 38 minutes ago

Dire warnings of stalking adversaries. A magic forbidden fruit that can't be resisted. An adversarial serpent-like foe that is hot on your tail. Had there been rebus picture word puzzles in the artwork related to John Milton's 'Paradise Lost'? Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a journey through the literary epic poem of 'Paradise Lost.' Utilizing an extravaganza of vibrant illustrations from history's most eminent artists, this seminar book first highlights the fine points of the fundamental story and then acquaints the readers with the history and overall canons of the Philosophers' Stone. The readers embark upon a tour through the epic saga 'Paradise Lost'--the legendary tale of the Supernatural War with its creation and Fall of Man stories about Adam and Eve. Readers will then learn the intricacies of the Art of alchemy, but what is even more important--by carefully piecing together the scattered clues, they will be brought nearer to the closely guarded message hidden deep inside the deliberately obscured texts. There is a message hidden in the picture word puzzles. Only this author exposes the true intent of the ancient alchemists, fishing out the actual concealed message from the muddy pond of hints and innuendo. The Art had been used for a very specific purpose -- and readers are guaranteed to be surprised with the deciphered end result. Upending the apple cart on what should be found within the alchemy riddles, the author has ferreted the secret message out from the picture word puzzles. The message isn't what anyone expected. In effect, the end result creates a paradigm shift on how these ancient works should be considered. Surprisingly, there had been hidden secrets in the artwork related to 'Paradise Lost.'

Guts and Grace: A Woman’s Guide to Full-Bodied Leadership by LeeAnn Mallorie (Conscious Capitalism Press) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

How can it be that companies' best efforts to advance women in the workplace are still falling short? In Guts and Grace, LeeAnn Mallorie addresses common themes that women leaders at all levels still grapple with today: confidence, executive presence, balance, joy, intuition, saying no, purpose, conflict avoidance, and more. She reveals the thirteen pervasive societal myths that can make these desires feel impossible to achieve, and then teaches concrete, embodied practices that bring each theme to life. Her playful weaving of these modern and ancient teachings will take you on a journey of unexpected and necessary evolution -- one that is required for any woman who is committed to making a bigger impact without losing herself or her critical stakeholders along the way. Guts and Grace is your roadmap on how to step out of internalized, patriarchal programming -- from the inside out -- and finally bring your whole self to work. LeeAnn Mallorie, MAPP, began her career as an executive coach in 2006, working with leaders and teams from around the globe. Yet she soon found something was missing -- the body. This led her on a personal journey of physical, mental, and spiritual healing that took her into the depths of her soul and the heights of her consciousness. Committed to the belief that transforming business is the keystone to solving many of our world's stickiest problems, she brought each of these lessons back to her clients in the corporate sector. As the founder and CEO of Leading in Motion, LeeAnn has now spent over a decade helping leaders face bottom-line challenges while combating both meaning-depletion and burnout. She does this by using practical embodiment tools to bridge the gap between the hard-driving logical mind and the deeper wisdom of the soul. Her leadership curriculum offers a concrete, actionable doorway to greater power, resilience, influence, ethics, and impact at work. "Guts and Grace is a brave, bold invitation into a new paradigm for ...

Rehumanizing the Workplace: Future-Proofing Your Organization While Restoring Hope, Well-Being, and Performance by Rosie Ward (Conscious Capitalism Press) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

Imagine a world where everyone can come to work as their authentically human, best selves. They feel fulfilled, supported, and cared for and have meaningful, purposeful work. At the end of the workday, they are able to bring their best selves home, be fully present with their loved ones, tend to their well-being, and replenish their well. This vision is possible. And it is desperately needed! Our rapidly changing world is becoming increasingly complex and disruptive. And while it brings many opportunities for innovation, it also triggers people to operate from a place of scarcity and self-protection, leading to disconnection and eroding well-being -- on both the organizational and individual level. As a result, workplaces have become increasingly dehumanized and are now the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. We have a humanity crisis on our hands! The good news is that there is a revolution already underway where organizations are breaking the mold and finding success by honoring what it means to be human and putting people first. In fact, research continues to emerge showing that human-centered organizations significantly outperform those operating from a "business-as-usual" approach. And the really good news is that this shift to rehumanize workplaces doesn't have to start with the C-suite -- really! It helps but is not a deal-breaker. Culture ultimately resides at the local team level; and you can transform workplaces by focusing on one team at a time. This book highlights how successful companies are thriving by putting people first. It details five key principles essential for rehumanizing workplaces; a framework to help restore hope, well-being, and performance; and tangible actions anyone can take to show up as a leader and influence positive change. -- -- -- Rosie Ward is a fierce advocate for humanity who is sought after to help rehumanize workplaces that free, fuel, and inspire people to bring their best selves to work -- and ...

The Slay of the Santas: The Jennifer Hunter Mysteries (The Jennifer Hunter Series Book 1) by Kacey Gene 4.3 Stars (32 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

You better watch out... you better not cry... or you might be the next to die. It's Christmas time in the snowy, quaint town of Middlebridge, Wisconsin, and Jennifer Hunter -- a sweet, organized second-grade teacher who has a mind for sleuthing -- is ready to spend her Christmas break crocheting, baking, and relaxing. But before the school bell can ring for Christmas break, her best friend and Middlebridge's Lieutenant, Jake Hollow, shows up in her classroom, but he's not there to bring a cup of Christmas cheer. There's a murder in town, and he needs Jennifer's help solving the crime. Jennifer soon discovers that not only is the killer targeting retired Santa Clauses, but he's also staging his victims like scenes from the Charles Dickens novel A CHRISTMAS CAROL. As Jake and Jennifer follow the clues, more questions than answers start to arise: What is this Society of Santas they keep hearing about? Why is the killer leaving behind empty pudding packages at each crime scene? And what in the world does the book A CHRISTMAS CAROL have to do with the victims? Add to that a tight-lipped orphan boy who's housing a pack of puppies in one of the victim's buildings, a quirky book store owner who lies about ever having sold a copy of A CHRISTMAS CAROL and Jennifer's date with a fellow school teacher that ends in total disaster. In between holiday parties, family obligations, baking, and creating handmade Christmas presents, Jennifer must craft together an investigation that catches the killer and saves the Santa Clauses in town. Otherwise, the night before Christmas might be their last. This clean, cozy mystery will captivate readers with Jennifer's amateur sleuthing that entangles her in snow-deep shenanigans, cryptic car chases, and more chocolate pudding than she ever imagined. Readers will fall in love with the quick-witted and craft-loving Jennifer Hunter, who is down-to-earth and has a heart as warm as a crackling fire on a cold winter's night. The charming ...

The Happiness of Pyot: An action-oriented secular guide to contentment by Sandy Bicepool 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

The legend - Pyot Coulibaly is a dying, elderly member of an ancient, venerable, yet extremely enigmatic movement. She selects a sceptical ghost writer to document the collective experience of this secretive association. This book charts the deepening relationship between mentor and writer, as Pyot reveals the timeworn protocols of her mysterious institution. Together they steadily uncover the sources of her unshakeable positivity, optimism, and playfulness: and in so doing develop an action-oriented, secular guide to contentment - the guidelines of the Accede movement. The issue - There are plenty of grim statistics cataloguing the growing millions of people who are and will likely remain deeply or pathologically unhappy. But, for us, understanding the sources of unhappiness is less important than knowing the solution: and knowing the solution is secondary to learning how best to achieve it, and then to maintain our contentment. The conundrum - Science struggles to explain unhappiness let alone provide lasting solutions. For many people, religion is no longer the answer, and we understand why. And in the absence of an alternative, accessible, and workable framework of secular ethics, millions are succumbing to unhappiness and destructive obsessions. It need not be this way. The Accede movement - Pre-dates Hinduism, Christianity and Buddhism. Arguably it has contributed to the premises and practices of many theologies. But it is not a religious institution. It has coexisted quietly alongside capitalism, socialism, and communism. But it has never been and never will be drawn into any systemic conflict or controversy. The solution - The sole purpose of the movement is, and has only ever been, to promote the peace and contentment of its members, and of the people around them. Spiritual in nature, it simply suggests a code of secular ethics and practices that invariably lead to greater happiness and ease. It works. But until now members have felt the need to remain ...

Her Final Year: A Care-Giving Memoir by James Downey (HFY Publishing, LLC) 4.6 Stars (34 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

Two families, half a continent apart, faced with a loved one struggling against the onset of Alzheimer's Disease. Two men, who each wind up being the primary care-provider for a beloved mother-in-law. These were roles they never expected to fill. Nothing they had done previously had prepared them for this. We often hear that life is a journey, and it's the journey that matters - the path and the experiences - more than anything else. The family confronted with a loved one struggling against dementia often faces new, unexpected twists and turns in their journey. This book offers some perspective on that journey, as we were going through it. It's part memoir, part journal, and all based on the things we were writing at the time. In seeing what we experienced, and the decisions we each made, over the arc of care-giving and then recovery, perhaps you will be better able to understand your own path, choose your own road.

EMBRACED - In Syria with Love by Heini Grünbaum 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

In the summer of 1989 I went to visit my dear friend Ahmed in Syria. This is his story and the stories of so many other people I met... ... and then we move fast forward to present time. Today, the 26th of August 2016 - "Updates and Thoughts on my book about Syria": In 1990 I began writing my book about my personal experiences in Syria. I was still a very young man and memories from my time in Syria were crystal clear and still dripping from the excitement. After about 60 pages I ran out of steam and it wasn't until 20 years that I decided to finish my book with all of its unusual stories. During the writing process the uprising in Syria began March 2011. I was conflicted by it and tried a few times to draw some parallels from the new escalating conflict to the stories in my book. But I soon realized that my book about Syria, which is very personal and at times extreme, had to be a periodic piece, an image of the moment with absolutely no references to the future or present times... But what my book does bring to readers who are more interested in the current events rather than the past, is an exclusive insight into the Syrian Arab mentality. A chance to understand why people in this region of the world are particularly addicted to vengeance and brutal violence, and why, perhaps, they have such a short sighted understanding of their own future. Though my book is a patchwork of imperfections and seemingly trifling details, it reflects, now more than ever, upon the clashes between civilizations. Those captured by modern technology and the process of evolution, embracing it as it is. And those who take the new comforts for granted, but insist to continue living in the shadows of the Middle Ages. EMBRACED - In Syria with Love Heini Grünbaum

The Sea is Only Knee Deep - Volume 1 by Paul Weinzweig (Paulina Zelitsky, Paul Weinzweig) 4.8 Stars (10 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

This is an authentic first-hand story of a Jewish/Ukrainian girl who chose to risk her life rather than become a KGB informant and honey trap in Havana during the publicly unknown second Cuban Missile Crisis (Cienfuegos crisis) in 1970. For the benefit of detente, the American administration pretended that the Cienfuegos crisis was solved in secret diplomacy. This was not true: the Cienfuegos Soviet submarine base operated for 22 years until Russia closed it in 1992. This secret second Soviet Navy nuclear adventurism, threatening a confrontation with the United States, dramatically affected the lives of Paulina, her husband, and their two small children. Paulina's memoir was motivated by the resurrection of new Russian global ambitions leading to the current third Cuban Crisis (2020) where the USA finds itself right now. In the late 1960s, thousands of Soviet navy personnel and technical military experts were sent back to Cuba as civilians under agricultural, technical and cultural visas. The memoir describes how and why Paulina was co-opted to work for a top-secret project building a naval base in Cuba for Soviet submarines equipped with nuclear warhead missiles - all camouflaged as a new civil cargo port in Cienfuegos and hidden beneath the ocean. Once again, the Soviet military excelled in its strategy of deception, traditionally recognized in the Soviet Union as the highest operational military art. Standing at the crossroads of autobiography and contemporary history, Paulina's memoir presents an intimate and bittersweet portrait of the coming of age of a fiercely independent Jewish girl, raised by her father, a former sea captain, in the Black Sea city of Odessa (Odesa), Ukraine during and after Stalin's last decade of Soviet power. Interwoven with her childhood narrative of a streetwise kid, deftly dodging the suffocating strictures of Communist tyranny, is a Cold War thriller arising from Paulina's personal involvement with a top-secret Soviet submarine base ...

Review. 'William Peel is a brilliant character, an aristocratic buffoon - so wealthy he is beyond reproach, and lacking any self awareness, he makes for a superbly comic protagonist.

With British forces stretched by the never-ending war with Napoleon, President Madison has chosen his moment to strike and needs gold for weapons and slaves to complete the country's new capital, Washington. Unbeknown to William and Madison, however, Europe's war with Bonaparte has ended and four thousand battle-hardened veterans - Wellington's Invincibles - have been dispatched across the Atlantic with orders to Raise Hell. By the time William arrives in Chesapeake Bay it isn't the welcoming embrace of the President that greets him but the British poised for invasion.

Detox Fast: How I Removed Cancer-Causing Chemicals from my Blood by Troy Reicherter 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

For decades we have known that cancer-causing chemicals accumulate in our bodies. Medical authorities have consistently told us there is no way to remove these toxicants from our systems. Now I have made a revolutionary breakthrough that shatters this belief. By using the most ancient of medical treatments - fasting - as my main intervention, I have done what modern medicine said was impossible. Since I began my experiment in 2015, my blood lipid DDT levels have fallen by 60.78% and blood lipid PCB levels have dropped 58.87% so far, with all evidence indicating that these amounts are continuing to decline dramatically. Now the wonders of this age-old healing secret are revealed in full. In this book, I share personal experiences spanning three decades, as well as the fruits of my extensive research, including: *The history of fasting. *The physiology of fasting. *Scientific discoveries about the myriad health benefits of fasting. *Considerations that must be made before attempting a fast. *My experiences with fasting from my first two-day fast in 1993 to the present, including commonly-encountered problems and the many painful lessons I've learned. *The modifications I made in my fasts, and the rationale for each. *What the day-to-day experience of extended fasting is like, with detailed logs from a 20-day fast in 2007, a 21-day fast in 2015, a 30-day fast in 2017, and a 40-day fast in 2018. *The complete results of my eight mass spectrometer tests for blood lipid pesticides and PCBs. *A brief history of toxicity, our present state of affairs, and little-known practical tips for avoiding toxins and toxicants in daily life. If you want to understand what you can do to avoid getting cancer from environmental toxicity, this book will take you at light speed from zero to 100. For women over 21 who plan to have children, imagine how nice it would be to give your babies 60-90% fewer toxic chemicals through your blood and breast milk (where they naturally ...

How To Write Photoplays (Vintage Screenwriting Series Book 1) by William C Martell (First Strike Press) 5.0 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

Screenwriting books did not begin with Syd Field, in 1913 there were four screenwriting how to books published, with at least one more in the following year. There have been screenwriting books for as long as there have been films! So let's take a look at one of the most popular books from this era, "How To Write Photoplays" by the #2 screenwriter at the time, Anita Loos. In addition to the full text of the original book and a complete screenplay by Loos, we'll look at Ms. Loos' career, the role of women in Hollywood at the time (over half of all copyrighted films in this period were written by women), and the reason why there were so many women screenwriters, producers, directors and studio executives. Hint: the 19th Amendment. We will also look at how the lessons from this 1920 book apply to screenwriting today. 60,000 words total, including the original 40,000 word book *plus* 20,000 words which are brand new for this edition! Also includes vintage photos, a real screenplay page from 1920, and some wonderful historical photos of the women's movement (including the "Silent Sentinels" chained to the White House gate!). This book is where history and screenwriting intersect, and the first in a series of *two dozen* vintage screenwriting books with added screenwriting information and historical information.

Dead, Insane, or in Jail: A CEDU Memoir by Zack Bonnie (Not With The Program) 4.7 Stars (91 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

Zack Bonnie was fourteen when his parents sent him to a "Troubled Teen" facility. The author takes readers there, in a thrilling psychological read. Sequestered where bizarre cult-like techniques become the norm, see for yourself exactly what the controversy is about. Should we mold a child's behavior using the tools of brainwashing? With coarse, brutal dialog and authentic source materials, this nonfiction memoir, the first in a series, exposes the secrets and tells it all. Dead, Insane, or in Jail: A CEDU Memoir is named for the range of options open to the author at 14, if he ran away from the cult his parents inadvertently inducted him into. This is the first time he has told his story. And it's a doozy. Too many people can relate to this account, unfortunately. Although Rocky Mountain Academy has closed its doors, several hundred residential teen-treatment programs, religious reeducation camps, and places that commit spiritual assassination still operate without oversight in the United States. Imagine (or remember) being a confused teenager. Now imagine that the only solution your parents can devise is sending you away to be "fixed." Zack's touching, true account of being trapped in the "scared straight" industry just might be the book your reluctant teenage reader has been seeking. Barbara J. Danis Literacy Specialist / Coach Zack Bonnie's work is a gift to those interested in the history and dynamics of coercive residential teen-treatment programs. With gut-level insight, humor and frankness, he describes the inner experience of a precocious 14 year-old who was engulfed and overwhelmed by these bizarre, yet legal, forms of psychological abuse. Marcus Chatfield, Author, Institutionalized Persuasion It is sad the abuse of teenagers to tough love programs by mis-informed parents and politicians did not end with the revelations concerning the concept originator Synanon.

The Dark Ages Collection by Charles Oman (Blackmore Dennett) 4.7 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

The Dark Ages is a historical periodization traditionally referring to the Middle Ages, that asserts that a demographic, cultural, and economic deterioration occurred in Western Europe following the decline of the Roman Empire. The term employs traditional light-versus-darkness imagery to contrast the era's "darkness" (lack of records) with earlier and later periods of "light" (abundance of records).The concept of a "Dark Age" originated in the 1330s with the Italian scholar Petrarch, who regarded the post-Roman centuries as "dark" compared to the light of classical antiquity.

Architecture of a Technodemocracy: How Technology and Democracy Can Revolutionize Governments, Empower the 100%, and End the 1% System by Jason M. Hanania (technodemocracy.us) 4.4 Stars (77 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

The world is primed for radical changes in government where each of us has an equal voice and all are held accountable. In Architecture of a Technodemocracy, Hanania provides a detailed blueprint on how to leverage current government processes, communications systems, and blockchain security to take the next step in the evolution of human government. By harnessing technology that already exists, we can nonviolently reshape our respective governments. The cooperation of modern politicians is not a requirement. A technodemocracy can be created without spending any tax dollars, passing any new laws, or otherwise turning to career politicians for leadership. Like Bitcoin, technodemocracy uses readily available technologies to decentralize power from the 1% to the 100%. Its principles can be applied to any nation. Despite being drafted more than 200 years ago, the Constitution enables a U.S. technodemocratic republic. No nation in history has ever had such an absolute straightaway to a 100% democratic government -- the opportunity to revolutionize society, economy, and environment without using violence. Through illustrations, examples, and analogies, Architecture of a Technodemocracy provides an elegantly simple method for decentralizing power to 100% of the American people and, in the process, ending the U.S. political party system. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Jason M. Hanania is an attorney, an engineer, and a former U.S. government employee. He ran for the U.S. Senate in 2016 as the first technodemocratic candidate. PREFACE In 2016, I ran for the U.S. Senate as the first technodemocratic candidate. During that process, I received hundreds of questions. Architecture of a Technodemocracy answers those questions. This book is organized into four parts: I. Government Requirements II. Legal Requirements III. Technical Requirements IV.

In Search of Lost Time: Volumes 1-7 by Marcel Proust (Steppenwolf Press) 3.8 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

In Search of Lost Time is a novel in seven volumes, written by Marcel Proust (1871-1922). It is considered to be his most prominent work, known both for its length and its theme of involuntary memory, the most famous example being the "episode of the madeleine" which occurs early in the first volume. The epic follows the narrator's recollections of childhood and experiences into adulthood during late 19th century to early 20th century aristocratic France, while reflecting on the loss of time and lack of meaning to the world. The novel began to take shape in 1909. Proust continued to work on it until his final illness in the autumn of 1922 forced him to break off. Proust established the structure early on, but even after volumes were initially finished he kept adding new material and edited one volume after another for publication. The last three of the seven volumes contain oversights and fragmentary or unpolished passages, as they existed only in draft form at the death of the author; the publication of these parts was overseen by his brother Robert. The work was published in France between 1913 and 1927. Proust paid for the publication of the first volume (by the Grasset publishing house) after it had been turned down by leading editors who had been offered the manuscript in longhand. Many of its ideas, motifs and scenes are foreshadowed in Proust's unfinished novel, Jean Santeuil (1896-99), though the perspective and treatment there are different, and in his unfinished hybrid of philosophical essay and story, Contre Sainte-Beuve (1908-09). The novel had great influence on twentieth-century literature; some writers have sought to emulate it, others to parody it. In the centenary year of the novel's first volume, Edmund White pronounced À la recherche du temps perdu "the most respected novel of the twentieth century".

Court of Appeals decisions that analyze, interpret and apply the doctrine of Eleventh Amendment sovereign immunity. * * * The Eleventh Amendment to the United States Constitution provides: "The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State." U.S. Const. amend. XI. The Supreme Court in Hans v. Louisiana, 134 U.S. 1, 10 S.Ct. 504, 33 L.Ed. 842 (1890), "extended the Eleventh Amendment's reach to suits by in-state plaintiffs, thereby barring all private suits against non-consenting States in federal court." Lombardo v. Pa., Dep't of Pub. Welfare, 540 F.3d 190, 194 (3d Cir. 2008) (emphasis omitted). Immunity from suit in federal court under the Eleventh Amendment is designed to preserve the delicate and "proper balance between the supremacy of federal law and the separate sovereignty of the States." Alden v. Maine, 527 U.S. 706, 757, 119 S.Ct. 2240, 144 L.Ed.2d 636 (1999). The Eleventh Amendment serves two fundamental imperatives: safeguarding the dignity of the states and ensuring their financial solvency. See Hess v. Port Auth. Trans-Hudson Corp., 513 U.S. 30, 52, 115 S.Ct. 394, 130 L.Ed.2d 245 (1994) (identifying "States' solvency and dignity" as the concerns underpinning the Eleventh Amendment). Karns v. Shanahan, 879 F. 3d 504 (3rd Cir. 2018)

Rises and Falls of Ancient Eras: The great mystical ways of the ancients by Gina T. Gibbons Price verified 19 hours ago

Rises and Falls of Ancient Eras The great mystical ways of the ancients The life of human civilization keeps so many secrets and mysteries! Huge pyramids and cities buried under the stratum of the earth, temples lying at the bottom of the ocean and the technology of ancient cultures, stunning mind and imagination of modern people - all this is the history of the Earth unknown to us. There was a time when other civilizations existed on Earth and they were different from us. Our civilization for several hundred years has formed a coherent scientific theory about the history of our planet. Archaeological finds that do not fit into the dogmas of this theory are either silenced or closed with the "secret" stamp. But, these finds every year more and more. Researchers are finding more and more traces and facts of ancient civilizations, legends are becoming a reality and the past is probably not concealed. The theory of our history will have to change. Modern proud "exact science" is already forced to admit that the ancients had access to what is not available to us today. She acknowledged that the ancient civilizations and peoples developed in some other way that was not typical of us. In this book we will try to examine some of the ancient mysteries that lagged behind our distant ancestors.

Unlocking the Cage: Exploring the Motivations of MMA Fighters by Mark Tullius (Vincere Press) 4.7 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 19 hours ago

A Sociological Study The cage door clangs shut. The lock slides into place. The voice in my head drowns out everything else. What the hell is wrong with me? Follow the journey of Mark Tullius, former cage fighter and boxer turned author and stay-at-home dad as he puts his love of fighting and his sociology degree to use. What began as a personal exploration to unlock his reasons for continuing to train and pursue a fight career evolved into an in-depth sociological study of why competing in mixed martial arts (MMA) appeals to fighters. Why do these men and women subject themselves to the endless hours of grueling training required for the full-contact sport? In MMA a fighter's goal is to punch, kick, and choke an opponent into submission, and if there is blood and injury along the way, so be it. What compels these individuals to develop the necessary strength, endurance, discipline, and skill despite the risks involved? What's different about Mark's book? Instead of interviewing a handful of elite fighters, Mark traveled to every corner of the country, looking to train at different gyms and find fighters interested in showing the world who they are and why they fight. He finished the project after visiting 100 gyms and interviewing 340 fighters. Although it wasn't necessary, Tullius trained with the fighters and soon came to realize how valuable that time was, cultivating mental strength by surrounding himself with positive and inspiring individuals. It encouraged him to continue his project when he still had doubts about seeing it to its completion. Finally, Tullius believed that his willingness to get on the mat and demonstrate his trust in the fighters encouraged them to trust him and open up to a stranger about their fears and mistakes, dreams and accomplishments. Unlocking the Cage takes readers into the gyms and into the minds of the fighters. It celebrates the unique qualities of each individual while highlighting themes that appear and reappear. It ...

Van Gogh and the 31.51 by L. A. Braun Price verified 22 hours ago

Vincent Van Gogh had deliberately hidden a number '31.51' in his works. Curious about the time-capsule of secrets that had been hidden in Van Gogh's work? This is book II of the 'Impressionism Rebus Series'--which highlights the rebus picture puzzle impressions that can be found in the artwork of the Impressionist painters. It is a recent 2018 picture-based rebus book with over a thousand pictures. Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a journey through the basics of the Philosophers' Stone. Utilizing an extravaganza of vibrant illustrations from history's most eminent artists, this book first highlights the fine points of the fundamentals and then acquaints the readers with the history and overall canons of the Philosophers' Stone. The readers embark upon a tour through widely varying perspectives on the concept of the '31.51' image and its manifestations. Readers will then explore the intricacies of the Art of alchemy, but what is even more important--by carefully piecing together the scattered clues, they will be brought nearer to the closely guarded message hidden deep inside the deliberately obscured texts. There is a message hidden in the picture word puzzles. Only this author exposes the true intent of the ancient alchemists, fishing out the actual concealed message from the muddy pond of hints and innuendo.

Cyber Attack, CyberCrime, CyberWarfare - CyberComplacency: Is Hollywood's blueprint for Chaos coming true (In the Brown Stuff series Book 1) by Mark Osborne 4.1 Stars (10 Reviews)    Price verified 23 hours ago

"Cyber Attack, CyberCrime, CyberWarfare - CyberComplacency" is one of the few books that covers destructive Computer Network Attacks in the Internet and in CyberSpace. It is an in-depth reference that covers DDOS from motivation, identification, analysis and mitigation. By the author of the consistently top-selling in class "How to Cheat at Managing Information Security" and like that book, proceeds go to charity. Osborne starts with Network/Internet provider business practices and existing monitoring & detection systems. It shows the current focus on other forms of attacks including traditional electronic espionage, counter-terrorism and malware. It then describes various mechanisms for estimation of Cyberattack impact covering direct cost, indirect cost, and customer churn. It gradually drills down covering the various attacks types - right down to the packet trace level, and how to detect them. These chapters are culminated with a full description of mitigation techniques, traditional and cutting edge - again these are described in clear English but reinforced with common device configuration for the technical reader. The penultimate section highlights details of vulnerabilities in the Physical, Human, Mobile Apps, SCADA, Software security, BGP, and DNS elements of Cybersecurity. These include those that are currently utilised, that were predicted and have since been exploited during the publication process, and those that have yet to be leveraged. The last chapter explores the concept of a Firesale and how Hollywood's blueprint for Armageddon could be implemented in reality.

DUALITY: Prepare Yourselves and Your Children for the Age of Artificial Intelligence by Bernard Golstein 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

It has often been said that Artificial Intelligence is the new electricity: a general-purpose technology destined to permeate all layers of society. But in a more powerful, impactful, and double-edged way. AI increases our daily well-being, contributes to solving humankind's greatest challenges, yet it presents a number of dangers, visible and hidden. There is still time to prepare, but there certainly is no time to waste. What can you do so that you and your children thrive in the age of Artificial Intelligence? You must first understand what AI really is, beyond the hype and the confusion. How can we make sense of a technology which questions us on the meaning of being human? How can we reconcile the fact that AI surpasses humans in many ways and yet, in many others, is less intelligent than a two-year old? Impressive as it is, Artificial Intelligence is neither magical nor supernatural - it's only a few lines of code. The author compares human and AI capabilities on the main human mental processes: memory, attention, perception, learning, reasoning, creativity, language, emotions, willpower and motor skills. Machines certainly don't work like humans. And it doesn't really matter: planes don't flap their wings, yet they fly extremely well. You must then understand the repercussions on the world of work. For of all the perils presented by Artificial Intelligence, the one posed on work is by far the greatest. Today, AI is technologically capable of performing half of all human tasks at work. By the end of the century, everything that humans can do, AI will also be able to do. Four scenarios stand out as to the possible evolution of society - and each one of these is mind-boggling. Long before that happens, current jobs will undergo a radical change at an unprecedented pace and magnitude. Which jobs will disappear? Which ones will stay? Following what patterns? What will the future of work look like? What are the guidelines for career choices that should be kept in ...

But I Told You Last Year That I Loved You by Sue Hepworth (Delicately Nuanced) 4.6 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

Frances has been married to Sol since the beginning of time. He is eccentric and difficult to live with, but she finds him endearing and very funny, even while wanting to strangle him with his own jogging bottoms. Now, something threatens to split them apart. Frances wants one thing and Sol wants another, and there is no way to compromise. But I Told You Last Year That I Loved You is a portrait of a mature marriage at a crossroads - intimate, funny, tender and honest. "clever, funny, subtle, wry, sad and uplifting all at once... Sue Hepworth writes thoughtfully and insightfully, and with such tenderness and humour" Judith Murray, literary agent "Writing about autism and Asperger's syndrome is notorious for the ways in which it frequently cannot resist the lure of the sensational and the spectacular. All too often the condition of autism, and individuals and characters with it, are turned into objects of belittling fascination for a reading audience, often as not more than performing sideshows. What is so refreshing about Sue Hepworth's - But I Told You Last Year That I Loved You - is that it avoids all these traps and rather presents Asperger's as a normal, if idiosyncratic, part of everyday life that elicits frustration, comedy and tenderness all at the same time. Hepworth's achievement in making the condition both distinctive and unspectacular, and weaving this into a narrative of romantic and family life, displays a genuinely subtle understanding of how autism - this most contemporary of conditions - works." Stuart Murray, Professor of Contemporary Literature and Film at Leeds University - expert on the representation of disability in popular culture, and author of Representing Autism: Culture, Narrative, Fascination (Liverpool University Press, 2008), and Autism (The Routledge Series Integrating Science and Culture) Routledge 2012.

Siren's Song: The Allure of War by Antonio M. Salinas 4.7 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

"First you will come to the Sirens who enchant all who come near them. If anyone unwarily draws in too close and hears the singing of the Sirens, his wife and children will never welcome him home again, for they sit in a green field and warble him to death with the sweetness of their song. "There is a great heap of dead men's bones lying all around, with the flesh still rotting off them. Therefore pass these Sirens by, and stop your men's ears with wax that none of them may hear." (Odyssey. Book 12, 188-191). Everyone dreams. However, some of us dream about a nightmare that is a timeless character in civilization: war. The Siren's Song of war has a hold upon much of mankind, in that some of us are drawn to it like nothing else. Some of us fantasize about this experience called war. We read books, watch movies, and play video games about combat. Some wonder if they'd be brave enough to face the enemy and stare death in its face. Others wonder what the sound of a bullet flying overhead makes or how it feels to lay eyes upon the enemy for the first time. Do you wonder what war is like? This is a story of one man who was captivated by the Siren's call to war. The Sirens of war awaited him in the Pesh River Valley of Kunar Province, Afghanistan. There in Kunar, he finally learned the truth about war. If you are curious about this nightmare, or perhaps lived through it yourself, you are welcome to share in this journey. You will walk amongst the training grounds and experience war. These are one man's reflections of combat, taken from his war journal and originally written within hours of firefights, while his ears were still ringing from the cacophony of battle that all warriors intimately know. You are invited to this Afghanistan, a place where savage beauty and death coexist in every moment and with every breath.

Is a Trafficking Victim the Only One Who Can Help Jean Break Free? Jean has been called Blue Jean since childhood, but not because of her clothing.

A chance encounter brings the town prostitute to church that Sunday, starting a chain reaction that will shake the church to its core.

Seminar on Paul by L. A. Braun Price verified 11 hours ago

Paul had been a zealous murderer, set out on a journey to acquire more victims, when he had been stricken down by an astonishing light. Blinded, Paul was summarily commanded by a heavenly being to travel around the known world and teach that a revolutionary new world order was at hand. Subjecting his life and liberty to great danger, his missive would be directed at his enemies. Had there been rebus picture word puzzles in the artwork related to the Apostle Paul? Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a journey through the lifetime events of Paul. Utilizing an extravaganza of vibrant illustrations from history's most eminent artists, this seminar book first highlights the fine points of the fundamental story and then acquaints the readers with the history and overall canons of the Philosophers' Stone. The readers embark upon a tour through Paul's adventurous journeys. Readers will then learn the intricacies of the Art of alchemy, but what is even more important--by carefully piecing together the scattered clues, they will be brought nearer to the closely guarded message hidden deep inside the deliberately obscured texts. There is a message hidden in the picture word puzzles. Only this author exposes the true intent of the ancient alchemists, fishing out the actual concealed message from the muddy pond of hints and innuendo. The Art had been used for a very specific purpose -- and readers are guaranteed to be surprised with the deciphered end result. Upending the apple cart on what should be found within the alchemy riddles, the author has ferreted the secret message out from the picture word puzzles. The message isn't what anyone expected. In effect, the end result creates a paradigm shift on how these ancient works should be considered. Surprisingly, there had been hidden secrets in the artwork related to the Apostle Paul.

Witness to Marvels: Sufism and Literary Imagination (Islamic Humanities Book 2) by Tony K. Stewart (University of California Press) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 12 hours ago

A free open access ebook is available upon publication. Learn more at www.luminosoa.org. There is a vast body of imaginal literature in Bengali that introduces fictional Sufi saints into the complex mythological world of Hindu gods and goddesses. Dating to the sixteenth century, the stories -- pir katha -- are still widely read and performed today. The events that play out rival the fabulations of the Arabian Nights, which has led them to be dismissed as simplistic folktales, yet the work of these stories is profound: they provide fascinating insight into how Islam habituated itself into the cultural life of the Bangla-speaking world. In Witness to Marvels, Tony K. Stewart unearths the dazzling tales of Sufi saints to signal a bold new perspective on the subtle ways Islam assumed its distinctive form in Bengal.

’Cet FOR LIFE - BOOK ONE: THE OXYCODONE BLUES by B. Alexander Owen 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

B Alexander Owen's debut novel takes readers' into the chaotic and drug dependent world of Stiv Baker- a part-time writer, grifter, and Oxycodone drug addict. When Stiv's monthly trip to the pharmacy for "supplies" goes terribly wrong, he descends to the lower depths of depravity to get what he needs, and one disaster follows the next, with growing personal anxiety that his life is about to end. Although drug addiction and recovery are part of the dramatic and emotional undertow of 'Cet for Life, the author writes an engaging portrait of the new decadent man, as described correctly in the Age of Decadence by Ross Douthat, recently writing in the New York Times. "... the opioid epidemic, whose spread across the unhappiest parts of white America passed almost unnoticed in elite circles for a while because the drug itself quiets rather than inflames, supplying a gentle euphoria that lets its users simply slip away, day by day and bit by bit, without causing anyone any trouble." 'Cet for Life confronts and challenges our beliefs that addicts are somehow a subhuman casualty of predatory and criminal pharmaceutical companies and unscrupulous doctors. Stiv confronts his humanity, his demons, and pulls out of the spiral of a user's dependence, stagnation, and absurdity and onto the path to recovery.

I MADE A WISH AND YOU CAME TRUE: a memoir by ROBIN SMITH FALLONE 5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

My book is a memoir based on my first love, he was an amazing boy who came into my life when we were much too young to understand true love. And yet he was, seemingly, my perfect match. The significance of the cover of my book is that it is a picture I took of the woods behind our school where he carved our initials into a tree back in 1972. My book touches on the insecurities I had back then which led me to abandon that boy. I describe the devastation I felt when he moved on to someone else and how I spent years trying to find another love to match the one I had with him, eventually, leading me into an abusive relationship with my high school boyfriend. It was one that almost destroyed me. Sadly, I allowed myself to be affected by the growing pains many of us suffer from during our ever-changing adolescent and teenage years. I wish I knew then what I know now when it came to the jealousy, interference and betrayal of friends that I allowed to affect my life in ways I shouldn't have. I would have done things so differently including kicking some friends to the curb who, as it turns out, never had my best interest at heart and in fact probably never cared about me. I share how all of these life experiences played an intricate part in the adult I was to become. My life is an open book, therefore, I try my best to talk about everything... the good times as well as my darkest moments with you, my reader. The life lessons and afterthoughts that I write about are my way of showing that life doesn't always go the way you may plan and the road may be quite challenging but perhaps in the long run you wind up with the fairy tale ending. Read my book and you will find out if I did! I believe that through my journey, you will see yourself in me at times. I hope I may inspire you to take chances, persevere and become a stronger person because of my book.

Left Behind: My Suicide Survivor Story by Vanessa Bednar 3.4 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 27 minutes ago

This edition contains 20 pages of photos of my life. During the fifteen years before my father's deliberate, yet tragic suicide, I had a fairytale childhood. Our spacious house, built by my father, was located between both sets of my grandparents' homes. All my emotional and material needs were met. But when changes started happening with my dad, I didn't notice them... until I willfully disobeyed him, lied to him and betrayed him, for which he shunned me. From my teenager point of view, "that" started a downward spiral, with the end being his suicide: a bullet, a hanging, and my perfect childhood home on fire. For various reasons, I believed all of this was my fault, and "going on" afterward seemed impossible. So much of "what happened" was immediately put in a box. Throughout the 20 years of the guilt sentence I gave myself, I opened the box time and time again, taking out the pieces of what I'd experienced, examining them and learning what I could about resolving them within myself. Now, having documented it all in this book, the box is open, for all to see. No more secrets. I want to be clear that in many ways my story is like two different books. This book details my life, my fathers suicide, and after the death. My adult life contains many adventures, and part of which includes an extensive career working for the Hawaiian Tropic Model Search. Every choice I have made in my life and how I have reacted to all situations have been influenced by my fathers suicide in one way or another. I have no doubt about that. I still think about my fathers death every day. I believe this book can be of great service to those who have lost a loved one to suicide by helping them release their guilt, find what will bring them joy and go on to live a freer, more fulfilled life. www.leftbehind-abookforsuicidesurvivors.com
