Download or read book Everyone Has a Different Favourite written by C.S. Grey and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2010-09-17 with total page 83 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: These poems were almost all written on the spur of the moment. I sat up at 2 am tapping on the keyboard and when I had finished, the poem Insomnia was on the page. Bones (A True Dog Story) comes from the stories my father tells of his hunting dog. The way he tells about the eel episode always brings a laugh. The Greatest Eagle, Under the Scorching sun and The Real Pharaoh all come from my love of wild things. I Want to be a Sailor and When I put to sea came from my love of the sea and being on ships and boats. I wrote My Country, My Home while sitting on a cliff top overlooking the west coast of New Zealand, which also inspired The old Lady on the Hill. Changing Seasons was the first piece I wrote and people who read it encouraged me to do more. A Life on the Land is about a friend of a friend. My favourite poem, The rising storm, was written during a particularly violent thunderstorm. I had to write it by torchlight as the power had gone out. I am the river comes from my love of fishing, as does Where the shadows lie. The saddest of all the poems in this collection, The Last Goodbye, is a tribute to a very good friend (who was also my first girlfriend) who was killed in early 2010 aged 30. For some time now I have had a dream of owning a motorbike. Hence Freedom on a Kickstand. Volcano comes from a documentary I was watching on White Island. Dad spent nearly 30 years working on the railway. This supplied the inspiration for Riding on a Train, and Sitting on the platform. Battle of the River Plate came about because a very good friend suggested I write about a battle or event from history that had not been put into poetry. In our dining room, when I was a child, was a photograph of the HMNZS Achilles. The two themes seemed to go hand in hand. I kept as close to historical truth as possible on this one. I hope you enjoy. Which one is your favourite?

Download or read book You Can't Fire Everyone written by Hank Gilman and published by Penguin. This book was released on 2011-03-17 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A practical, entertaining handbook for people who never expected to be bosses. Plenty of managers never asked, expected, or trained to be put in charge of other people. But when it happens, these accidental bosses often find that learning to manage is like learning to swim by being dropped into the deep end of the pool. Hank Gilman knows what that's like. As a top editor for Fortune, Newsweek, and the Boston Globe, he has helped nurture some outstanding talent. His success can be attributed largely to his management style, which allows him to treat his employees like, well, humans, while holding them accountable. But he was far from a natural when it was time to take charge. Gilman shares the lessons he's learned-through trial and error-during his two decades as a manager in one of the craziest businesses on the planet. Writing in a warm but no-nonsense voice, he offers straight-up advice on the ins and outs of hiring, firing, motivating, and dealing with cranky superstars. Gilman argues that your employees should always come first-and that managing down, as opposed to managing up, will ultimately lead to a successful career as a boss.

Book excerpt: Detective Sergeant Patricia (Patti Mac) McAvoy’s career was turned upside down when an undocumented Mexican teen-aged boy was found strangled, floating in a 55 gallon drum in South Oyster Bay, Long Island. Inspection revealed he was carrying rosary beads and wearing a diaper. Simultaneously, McAvoy was transferred to Nassau County, NY, Homicide Squad South as a public relations ploy. Following a hostile reception from woman hating Detective Captain Peter J. Brennan, Patti was handed a cold case squad and exiled to an attic stacked floor to ceiling with cold cases. Brennan saddled Patti with four detectives, culled from his bad boy list, turning her assignment into a set up for failure. Outwitting Brennan by using guile and ingenuity, Patti led her team to a daring manslaughter arrest. Taking note of Patti’s leadership, a detective confided about his case of a murdered boy in a floating barrel, inexplicably removed from the active murder list and placed in the dead file as a special investigation. Patti attempted to re-open the case and ran into the infamous police “Blue Wall of Silence.” Patti browbeat Brennan into releasing the case. Breaching the “Wall,” cold case squad yielded two “persons of interest,” a prosperous attorney and a Roman Catholic Monsignor who was the Police Commissioner’s twin brother. Patti discovered the meaning of the ‘loneliness of command’ as she descended into the squalid world of sexism, racism, corruption and worst of all, pedophilia. The gruesome trail took her to the pillars of society. Patti found herself in the crosshairs of vile violent men, who would love to put a bullet between her eyes. The investigation exposed a massive political cover-up leading to the top of the food chain and ripped open a sleepy suburban county with the arrests of a powerful figure and Brennan.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A funny, sarcastic autobiography for those of us who find most people annoying. This book follows the life of Charles Hastings and his discovery of how he learned to hate everyone but love his dogs. “I didn’t always hate everyone, it was an acquired taste.” says Charles. “But I did always like dogs. From age five I just felt dogs were the coolest friends ever. Much more faithful and reliable than people. I knew it instinctively.” “As for hating everyone, I actually started as a tabula rasa with the same chance as everyone else to like people. Maybe the genes were there to hate everyone, but they weren’t developed yet. I can actually remember at age seven looking at my next-door neighbors and thinking ‘I hate these people’”.

Download or read book Narrow Fairways written by Patrick Inglis and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2019-07-01 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: India remains a country mired in poverty, with two-thirds of its 1.3 billion people living on little more than a few dollars a day. Just as telling, the country's informal working population numbers nearly 500 million, or approximately eighty percent of the entire labor force. Despite these figures and the related structural disadvantages that imperil the lives of so many, the Indian elite maintain that the poor need only work harder and they, too, can become rich. The results of this ambitious ten-year ethnography at exclusive golf clubs in Bangalore shatter such self-serving illusions. In Narrow Fairways, Patrick Inglis combines participant observation, interviews, and archival research to show how social mobility among the poor lower-caste golf caddies who carry the golf sets of wealthy upper-caste members at these clubs is ultimately constrained and narrowed. The book highlights how elites secure and extend class and caste privileges, while also delivering a necessary rebuke to India's present development strategy, which pays far too little attention to promoting quality healthcare, education, and other basic social services that would deliver real opportunities to the poor.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Our book explains the movement to establish online trust through the decentralization of value, identity, and data ownership. This movement is part of ‘Web 3.0’, the idea that individuals rather than institutions will control and benefit from online social and economic activities. Blockchain technologies are the digital infrastructure for Web 3.0. While there are many books on blockchains, crypto, and digital assets, we focus on blockchain applications for Web 3.0. Our target audience is students, professionals, and managers who want to learn about the overall Web 3.0 landscape—the investments, the size of markets, major players, and the global reach—as well as the economic and social value of applications. We present applications that use Web 3.0 technologies to unlock value in DeFi, NFTs, supply chains, media, identity, credentials, metaverses, and more. Readers will learn about the underlying technologies, the maturity of Web 3.0 today, and the future of the space from thought-leaders. This textbook is used by undergraduate and graduate Blockchain Fundamentals courses at the University of Arkansas, the University of Wyoming, and other universities around the world. Professors interested in adopting this book for instructional purposes are welcome to contact the authors for supporting instructional materials.
