By Jennifer Gabou
When eighteen-year-old Ally Lancaster sets foot on the University of Eastern Florida campus as a freshman, she’s unprepared for what being an NCAA Division I student-athlete truly means. Awarded a full tennis scholarship, she’s thrust into a raw, secretive world where the price of success lasts longer than the glory. During her first year, she encounters sex-crazed athletes, STDs, eating disorders, unpredictable teammates, selfish coaches, pregnancies, scandalous administrators, and an unlikely love interest. These incidents threaten to derail her from her strict virginal convictions and expectation of winning an NCAA team title. Ally quickly learns each decision can have a permanent impact. Pushed to the brink in every aspect, she is forced to choose between what is acceptable as an elite athlete and what is allowable for her personal conscience. Any and everything is possible in a world where football is king, winning is supreme, and all bow to the glory of sports. A novel, Division I presents an insider’s look at the shadows behind the bright lights of major NCAA college athletics.

Beri Baines is ready for a change. When the independent Trenton State College student is selected to study abroad in England in the 1970s, she boards a plane headed toward her home for the next five months—Portsmouth City College of Education—without any idea that her experience is about to bring about a true exchange of permanent outcomes.

By Jim Farrell
It is 1945 in Long Beach, New York, when three-year-old Brian Farley receives the scare of a lifetime. As little Brian bounces on his father’s stomach in a second-floor bedroom of their summer house, his father suddenly loses his grip, sending Brian out through the screen window and onto the sand below. As the summer house, normally a place of peace and respite, disrupts into chaos, little Brian has no idea that this particular event is just one of the many escapades he will experience growing up as an Irish Catholic boy in Brooklyn and Long Beach. Brian embarks on a memorable coming-of-age journey as the Farleys spend their winters in a borough that’s undergoing many changes—the influx of Puerto Ricans, neighborhood deterioration, and the desertion of the Brooklyn Dodgers—and their summers in paradise at their grandparents’ summer home. As Brian matures and falls in love with a beautiful, Puerto Rican classmate, only time will tell if their relationship will survive his mother’s judgment and the shifting demographics of Brooklyn. But it is only after the family matriarch suddenly dies that everything Brian has ever known suddenly changes. In this compelling story, as a Brooklyn boy matures into adulthood amid a warm, loving, and sometimes conflicted New York family, he soon discovers he is responsible for his own happiness.

By Edward V. Yang

Even though instant communications and strides in transportation have made it easier for individuals to travel and communicate, the great divide across global cultures continues. Nowhere is this more evident than between the cultures of China in the East and the United States in the West.

With China’s elevation to global superpower status, it is vital for Americans to improve their understanding of the principles that are core to the way our friends and counterparts in China think and act. In Confucius Says … There Are No Fortune Cookies in China, authors Edward V. Yang, Kate Ou, and Dennis Smith discuss the customs, history, and business practices in China, with an eye toward enhancing relationships through a better understanding of the culture of the East through American eyes.

Yang, Ou, and Smith translate more than one hundred combined years of real-world living and working experience in China and across Asia into practical, everyday lessons intended for anyone wishing to build better business and personal relationships in China. This guide contains one hundred lessons, including common sayings, proverbs, idioms, quotes from ancient Chinese philosophers, and the authors’ own experiences.

Yang shares fundamental lessons derived from his personal experience—knowledge gained through his upbringing, through his traditional Chinese and US education, through his work experience in Asia and the United States, and, most importantly, through his mistakes.

When author and operational excellence consultant Menno R. van Dijk joined ING Domestic Bank in the Netherlands, the company had already been using the Lean system a few years. But van Dijk felt something was missing—the fun factor: experiments, improvements, a supportive management style, and teamwork. He wasn’t seeing the sense of invigoration and renewal that comes when employees on the shop floor experience the improvement brought on by a Lean implementation.

He went to work and created a new approach—Super7—that took the Lean system in financial services to the next level. It radically reduced customer waiting times with less management and more responsibility on the shop floor. In Super7 Operations, he discusses Super7 in detail—how it was developed, what it does for customers, how it changes culture on the shop floor, and how it affects employees and managers. He explains its benefits, which include

flexible capacity to cope with fluctuating demand—no inventory, no waiting;

small, autonomous teams committed to getting the job done for their customers;

output management and delegated responsibilities; and

continuous improvement of performance without the need for tight controls.

Including case studies, this guide provides valuable tips and tricks for implementing Super7 in an organization that is looking for ways to improve their customers’ experience.

Tara Carlsen wanted to help at-risk students learn without relying on stale, clinical teaching methods. Instead of trying to find solutions in the classroom, the mathematics teacher transplanted failing students from an alternative high school to a horse ranch. There, she encouraged them to reach for the reins, and she witnessed dramatic results.

Students who could not relate to their peers or teachers could relate to horses—and suddenly their futures looked a whole lot brighter. Carlsen and her students proceeded to take an inspiring journey, learning the basics of horsemanship through equine-assisted learning—a therapeutic approach to interpersonal development using horse-related activities.

After learning the basics, the students taught peers with special needs what they’d learned, drawing upon their own struggles and triumphs to help them achieve success. Punctuated with humor, heartbreak, and hard-won triumph, Reaching for the Reins chronicles the struggles and successes of these students over five years.

Imagine being diagnosed with a disease as seemingly minor as melanoma that quickly progresses to stage four cancer, where the chances of survival drop to less than 10% in five years. And, the options are only surgery, a handful of tough FDA-approved treatments, and a risky experimental therapy hundreds of miles from home.

Usually we think of cancer as an ugly, terrifying disease. But Bob Heffernan's amazing journey against all odds tells an uplifting story of perseverance, hope, and positivity that will inspire all cancer patients. He found that alongside fear and suffering, cancer provides numerous gifts that nourish the human soul. It’s a story about how we can find goodness and beauty in even the most terrible challenge life throws at us: cancer.

Giving someone feedback can be a daunting task for a manager—especially when an employee is underperforming. To soften the blow, we sometimes refer to difficult feedback as “developmental” or “constructive.” But these phrases rarely prompt the type of productive conversations managers need to have with team members.

Steve King, a longtime executive who has held leadership roles with a variety of organizations, cuts to the chase with a simple and tested framework on providing feedback.

Think of how great it would be to break through the typical awkwardness of giving feedback and start having serious conversations about performance, development, and careers.

Regardless of your role, if you want to give feedback to others on a regular basis, you need a proven approach to improve the quality of your conversations. It starts with four simple words—Brag, Worry, Wonder, Bet.

So much energy is focused on what’s wrong with our public schools and how to fix them that we often lose sight of the extraordinary work occurring in our schools every day, thanks to millions of caring, dedicated professional educators who work hard to ensure every student reaches their potential.

In Hello! My Name is Public School and I Have an Image Problem, authors and teachers Leslie Milder and Jane Braddock provide a solution for educators who wish to strengthen public confidence in their public schools. They share commonsense techniques on how schools and their employees can establish themselves as ambassadors who convey a positive message. This book enunciates a step-by-step approach to challenging the unjust criticism and accusations of failure by directing the energies of those who work in our schools to step up as ambassadors for America’s public schools and the children they serve.

The authors underscore the power of professional unity and its profoundly positive impact on the profession, and why a culture of brotherhood is an essential element of any successful organization. The forces that weaken public trust and confidence in public education are discussed at length, as well as strategies for restoring public pride, hope, optimism, and confidence in our public schools and in those who dedicate their lives to educating our youth.

For centuries, Christians have discussed and looked forward to The Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

However, recent generations have grown apathetic. Many people no longer believe in Christ’s return. Others insist that, the Second Coming is in the very distant future. This theory was common among Christians until the mid 20th Century when the signs Christ related in the Bible, Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants began to appear. Today only two signs, of 26 foretold signs, remain to be fulfilled.
The Antichrist must reveal himself.

  • The Jewish temple must be rebuilt in Jerusalem.
  • When these two events occur, the world will be plunged into an unprecedented period of tribulation. Christians and Jews will be targeted for annihilation and the events described by Christ in Matthew 24 (New Testament of the Bible) will be fulfilled.

    We no longer have the luxury of waiting to prepare for the end times. They are almost here. Those who fail to understand will find themselves in a situation beyond their control. The only answer is, to have or to develop, a close and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

    This book organizes scripture warning signs that people can study to decide for them-selves, whether these prophesied events should concern them today. This book also provides scriptures with hope for the future.
