Book Excerpt :

Like most other people, I had struggled and worked hard to survive all my life, dealing with difficulties and obstacles as best I could. I had spent so many years ignoring my true desires, and what was in my heart. Instead, I followed the expectations of others. This book is a compilation of my Top List of Inspirational expressions from stories of people who didn’t give up when they encountered difficulties. I believe we were all created to make a difference in our world of influence. Yet, that doesn’t mean we are free from obstacles, there’s always going to be a mountain on our way, and that’s when most people express their fear. You will find short daily inspirational words that will assist you develop a fearless mindset because “Fear Is the Root of All Evil. It surfaces itself as corruption, crime, greed, anger, abuse, violence and war. But, all it really takes is devotion, courage; tenacity and willpower to weather the storms of life. You will discover that once you refuse to let temporary setbacks overwhelm you, all that is left for you to do is to persevere, try one more time, defy the odds and “JUST DO IT.” DON’T STOP!

Book Short Summary:

I Know What to Do, I Just Don't Do It is for women who have spent a lifetime dieting or at weight-loss meetings but are nowhere closer to their goal weight than they were ten, twenty, or thirty years ago. The saboteur seems to lurk at every Monday morning attempt to change. “I know what to do, but I just don't do it.” What’s going on here? The issue for many of us is much deeper than what a diet or program can fix. That is because being frustrated, overweight, and out of shape is a symptom of being disconnected from the truth and our true selves. Sue Markovitch takes us through the false beliefs that keep us stuck and replaces them with the truth about who we really are. We are encouraged to change for good, not by finally finding the right diet, program, or other means of control, but by making the shift from lies to truth.

Book Short Summary:

Do you know what the biggest problem plaguing people is these days? It's not so much fitness related as it is related to life - and that problem is - in a nutshell - "MAKING EXCUSES GALORE". Oh, I have no time to train. Oh, the neighborhood gyms are too expensive. Oh, those stretches are too difficult. Oh, and ... ah, why not just do it tomorrow? And so forth. Excuses, my friend, are the reason why most folks never get started on that road to super fitness, health and STRENGTH - both from the inside and the outside, and ZERO EXCUSES FITNESS gives you NO CHANCE to make ANY EXCUSES! In other words, its fitness instruction which flat out WORKS, provided you don’t make EXCUSES. NOTHING - I repeat NOTHING - is needed in order for you to do these exercises. NO equipment, NO gyms, not even the much vaunted "Swiss balls" or other "fancy shmancy" abdominal gadgets or gizmos (which ain't worth even the time of day you spend looking at the ads, to be honest). And no, you don't even need a chinning bar for most of the exercises I've shown. Pull-ups are great, but they are NOT required. Stop making excuses - and grab your copy NOW - and watch a whole NEW world open up to you in terms of OVERALL health, fitness, and strength. To your SUCCESS! Rahul Mookerjee

Die Wirkung von Anglizismen in der Werbung: „Just do it“ oder lieber doch nicht?

  • Pdf File: die-wirkung-von-anglizismen-in-der-werbung.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Mit der zunehmenden Internationalisierung in Deutschland, kommt es zu einer stetig steigenden Verwendung von Anglizismen. Anglizismen sind alltäglich geworden, beim Einkaufen im Supermarkt findet man „best price“ Angebote oder „roll back“ Produkte, in der Kneipe um die Ecke gibt es mittlerweile eine „Happy Hour“, beim Bäcker die „Muffins“, im Imbiss die „Chicken wings“ und „potatoes“, in Modehäusern heißt der Schlussverkauf nun „sale“ und natürlich treffen wir auch in der Werbung immer wieder auf Anglizismen. In keinem anderen europäischen (nicht englischsprachigen) Land gibt es so viel englische Werbung wie in Deutschland. Viele internationale Unternehmen werben in Italien auf Italienisch, in Spanien auf Spanisch, in Frankreich auf Französisch und in Deutschland auf Englisch. Das Phänomen der zunehmenden Anglizismen in der Werbung veranlasste mich, die Wirkung von Anglizismen in der Werbung genauer zu untersuchen. Bei dieser Untersuchung beschränke ich mich auf den Werbeslogan, denn dieser enthält kurz und knapp die Werbebotschaft und er kann ohne Bedenken getrennt von der restlichen Werbekampagne betrachten. Werbetexter setzen oft Anglizismen ein, um die Aufmerksamkeit der Konsumenten zu erregen. Aber wie diese Untersuchung zeigt, gibt es so viele Hersteller, die mit englischen Slogans werben, dass Anglizismen allein nicht mehr die Aufmerksamkeit der Kunden auf sich ziehen können. Vielmehr zeigt diese Untersuchung, dass sich eher die deutschsprachigen Slogans wie „Geiz ist geil!“ von Saturn und „Wohnst du noch oder lebst du schon?“ von Ikea aus der Masse hervorheben und auf sich aufmerksam machen.

Book Short Summary:

I wanted to inspire others with my book. It is for the people who are still in the dark and who may think there is no way out of their very own darkness. I am a survivor and I am a fighter. If I didn’t have Jesus in my heart I’d probably be in jail, still on drugs, or maybe even dead. Jesus is my light and you are not alone. You are not the only one who has suffered from pain, heartaches and disappointments. Jesus himself suffered in this world. Out of all the people, he was and still is a true definition of a good person. He gave it all up for you and me just so we can know he is God. He is love. He is my lord and savior and he can be yours too. I would have never made it this far without Jesus and I wanted you to know there is hope for all the brokenhearted who seek him.

Book Short Summary:

What does it mean to be masculine? These eleven men thought they knew, following in the footsteps of their fathers, marching to society’s drumbeat of manhood: A man is strong. A man doesn’t cry. A man is the provider. A man does it alone... in the course of their lives, each of these very different men found this same rigid idea of manhood standing between them and their happiness. Standing between them and being a fully realized man. Standing between them and their relationships. Standing between them and their heart’s path. Instead of building them up and making them stronger, they found themselves chained and isolated by these standards of masculinity. In these soulful interviews conducted by intuitive healer and author Alyssa Ditch, these eleven men candidly share their ascent into becoming real men: from heartache to healing, failure to triumph. Join her, as she dives into the hearts of these eleven brave men to understand how these fully-realized men had cast away society’s limitations on ‘masculinity’, rising to become better men for themselves, their families, and their communities. Learn the tools and techniques that worked for each of them on their journey to self-discovery. Be inspired by the example they set for all men, as it makes us think anew... ‘What is healthy masculinity?’

A handbook to awakening, the saga intertwines poetry, songs, quotations, essays and stream of consciousness thought in a unique and engrossing style of epic proportions while leading the reader towards his or her own spiritual awareness.

'Nothing about Jenny Diski is conventional. Diski does not do linear, or normal, or boring ... highly intelligent, furiously funny' Sunday Times 'Funny, heartbreaking, insightful and wise' Emilia Clarke 'She expanded notions about what nonfiction, as an art form, could do and could be' New Yorker Jenny Diski was a fearless writer, for whom no subject was too difficult, even her own cancer diagnosis. Her columns in the London Review of Books – selected here by her editor and friend Mary-Kay Wilmers, on subjects as various as death, motherhood, sexual politics and the joys of solitude – have been described as 'virtuoso performances', and 'small masterpieces'. From Highgate Cemetery to the interior of a psychiatric hospital, from Tottenham Court Road to the icebergs of Antarctica, Why Didn't You Just Do What You Were Told? is a collective interrogation of the universal experience from a very particular psyche: original, opinionated – and mordantly funny.

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human. Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it. Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it’s only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they always knew they would) that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is. Never Let Me Go breaks through the boundaries of the literary novel. It is a gripping mystery, a beautiful love story, and also a scathing critique of human arrogance and a moral examination of how we treat the vulnerable and different in our society. In exploring the themes of memory and the impact of the past, Ishiguro takes on the idea of a possible future to create his most moving and powerful book to date.

Book Short Summary:

“Blundo and Simon have successfully outlined how a solution-focused perspective can be a powerful tool for case managers. Their understanding and presentation is based upon practice scenarios that are real and applied...They clearly demonstrate the impact of ‘thinking and language’ and the importance of building a collaborative relationship with clients. Their work challenges the traditional theory-driven interventions that focus on problems and arrive at a diagnosis . They encourage a ‘shift’ to a co-constructive partnership that requires a practitioner to respect that clients are ‘experts of their own lives’...They provide a clear step-wise discussion of techniques and strategies that can be employed working with individuals and families in case management settings. This book is a must read.” -Lawrence T. Force, PhD. LCSW-R Professor of Psychology, Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, NY From the Foreword Solution-focused practice is a paradigm that stresses client abilities, strengths, and individual goals rather than disability. Written by a team of educator/practitioners noted for their expertise in solution-focused therapy, this “how-to” text for social work, counseling, and psychology students guides current and future case managers in learning this strengths-based, collaborative approach to case management. It discusses both the philosophical basis for solution-focused casework and demonstrates how it is ideally suited for the case management process. The book is based on teaching materials the authors have developed and used in their classes and workshops with undergraduate and graduate students and professionals. The text incorporates new research and theoretical developments in solution-focused therapy as well as actual practice scenarios demonstrating the process of building a collaborative relationship with individual clients and families. Replete with strategies and tools for practicing solution-focused case management, the text describes such essential skills as identifying goals, monitoring progress, working with other agencies, and transitioning out of treatment. It discusses issues related to ethical practice and presents strategies for self-care. Additionally, the book addresses diversity and social justice and their relationships to solution-focused practice. Student exercises help to reinforce knowledge. The text will assist case managers in a variety of settings—hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, community-based mental health agencies, schools, prisons, court systems, and shelters for the homeless and victims of domestic violence—to partner with their clients towards finding strengths-based and solution-focused approaches to resolving issues in a positive way. Key Features: Authored by noted experts in solution-focused education and practice Facilitates a reframing of casework and case management around client strengths and resources Provides specific case examples that allow readers to troubleshoot and apply solution-focused principles to practice Includes student exercises throughout the book

Book Short Summary:

The 6th edition of this established text is streamlined to a more manageable format, with the Appendices moved to the web-site and a significant shortening of the main text.

In consultation with feedback from their adopters, the authors have concentrated on the fundamentals of strategy analysis and the underlying sources of profit. This reflects waning interest among senior executives in the pursuit of short-term shareholder value. As ever students are provided with the guidance they need to strategic planning, analysis of the health services environment (internal and external) and lessons on implementation; with additional discussionssion of organizational capability, deeper treatment of sustainability and corporate social responsibility and more coverageof the sources of organizational inertia and competency traps. This edition is rich in new examples from real-world health care organizations.

Book Short Summary:

In 2014, Conrad Roy committed suicide following encouragement from his long-distance girlfriend, Michelle Carter, in what has become known as the Texting Suicide case. The case has attracted much attention, largely focusing on the First Amendment free speech issue. This book takes the view that the issue is intertwined with several others, some of which have received less attention but help explain why the case is so captivating and important, issues concerning privacy, accountability, coercion, punishment, and assisted suicide. The focus here is on how all of these issues are interconnected. By breaking the issue down into its complex layers, the work aids reasoned judgment, ensuring we aren’t guided solely by our gut reactions. The book is laid out as a case against punishing Ms. Carter, but it is less important that we agree with that conclusion than that we reach our conclusions not just through our instincts and intuitions but by thinking about these fundamental issues. The work will be of interest to scholars in law, political theory, and philosophy as an example of how theoretical issues apply to particular controversies. It will also appeal to readers interested in freedom of speech and the First Amendment, criminal justice and theories of punishment, suicide laws, and privacy.

Book Short Summary:

`Cummings′ book is very interesting, refreshing and intellectually stimulating... It should be a mandatory textbook for all serious students of management′ - Management Learning `Stephen Cummings′ Recreating Strategy is currently the best book on strategy, combining a holistic and critical understanding of the issue′ -Stewart Clegg, University of Technology, Sydney `An imaginative attempt to bring together and apply the many analytical frameworks relating to the organization as a whole into strategy theory and practice. Written for students on strategy, change management and more general management and organization theory courses. Encourages students to question assumptions and think creatively about strategy and management. Stimulating and original′ - Long Range Planning `In this intriguing book [Cummings] claims to be surprised that academics critical of management theory don′t critique its history, and proposes a kind of liberation theology in response, but this is not as doctrinaire. It′s more like replacing some well-justified habits with a refreshing originality of approach. The outcome is stimulating.... The author offers a cogently argued deconstruction of some well-known frameworks in strategy, and delivers his own reinterpretation of strategic discourse. There are five longer case studies in the book and several shorter vignettes scattered throughout early chapters, as well as pedagogical aids at the end of each chapter′ - Best of Biz, The Business Information Site `Do you worry about organizations becoming slaves to markets? Do you wish that organizations had the nerve to build their own ethos rather than just grubbing for profit? Do you aspire to inspiration rather than perspiration? Why does management practice get in the way of thinking and creativity? Stephen Cummings provides insight and guidance in a book of genuine scholarship and creativity′ - John McGee, President of the Strategic Management Society, USA `Management courses need more of what Stephen is offering. He wants us to go on an `unlearning curve′, one which leads to fresh thinking about strategy and the emerging roles and responsibilities of business and companies. This book not only tells us where we are coming from but, more importantly, it inspires us to think profoundly about where we could go. It′s also a very good read′ - Josephine Green, Director of Trends and Strategy, Philips `ReCreating Strategy provides a challenging examination of the emergence of management which combines postmodern and orthodox perspectives. Stephen Cummings is able to provide not only a fresh treatment of strategy and ethics but also to engage with a variety of potential audiences. He provokes and informs in equal measure′ - Richard Whipp, Cardiff University ′A truly eclectic approach to strategy! Intellectually capturing, the book is great fun to read at the same time. A must for those who want to discuss management beyond styles, fads and fashions′ - Hubert Wagner, Qonsult ReCreating Strategy is written for students of strategy, change management and more general management and organization theory courses. It will provide a better understanding of how to bring together and apply the many analytical frameworks relating to the organization as a whole. Stephen Cummings challenges the view that there is never one best framework and shows why the latest theory is not necessarily better than earlier ones. The textbook includes short and long case studies, interesting pictorial aids and examples, and a generally more participative and rewarding approach than that offered by more mainstream texts. PowerPoint slides to accompany the book are now also available by clicking on the link to `Sample Chapters and Resources′ in the left hand margin. The book also offers more scope for individual lecturers who wish to encourage students to question assumptions and think creatively about strategy and management.
