A bus crash almost killed him… Now someone’s come back to finish the job.
Author: Jane M. Choate
A bus crash almost killed him… Now someone’s come back to finish the job. Someone’s taking out survivors of a school bus crash from fifteen years ago, and former Delta soldier Liam McKenzie’s next on the list. Determined to figure out who is killing his old classmates, the single father enlists the help of security operative Paige Walker, whose brother died in the original crash. But digging up old secrets could prove lethal for them both. From Harlequin Love Inspired Suspense: Courage. Danger. Faith.
The history of this unique endeavor is written by an eye witness to the “rise and demise” of America’s Fourteenth Colony. The story is the result of the author retrieving original documents to verify the people and events of an odyssey that spanned five decades. The story is collaborated by the survivors and the beneficiaries of an experiment, for a better way of life, by a group of predominately Eastern European and Russian Jews with their political “shades of red” philosophy settling into what was a predominately “conservative” Chatham Township, a rural community in Central New Jersey. It is a story of objection, rejection, suspicion, ridicule and ultimately, assimilation and acceptance. The story has been influenced and colored by the author’s personal observations and personal experiences while growing up in the Colony. Bert Abbazia was a “Colony Boy”.

Shann Jones never expected to fall in love with a Welsh farmer at the age of 41. She didn't anticipate leaving her city-girl existence as a radio talk show host in San Francisco to end up running a 25-acre self-sustaining farm in Wales. And she certainly didn't expect to find herself locked in a desperate battle to save her husband's life from a deadly superbug infection, armed only with natural remedies and the probiotic drink they make on the farm. This is a true story, taken from Shann's diaries. It's about second-chance love stories, and happy endings that pop up when you least expect them. It's a story about nature, and farm life, and ancient recipes. And most of all, it's about the miracles that can happen when you refuse to give up hope.

Secrets from the Greek Kitchen explores how cooking skills, practices, and knowledge on the island of Kalymnos are reinforced or transformed by contemporary events. Based on more than twenty years of research and the author’s videos of everyday cooking techniques, this rich ethnography treats the kitchen as an environment in which people pursue tasks, display expertise, and confront culturally defined risks. Kalymnian islanders, both women and men, use food as a way of evoking personal and collective memory, creating an elaborate discourse on ingredients, tastes, and recipes. Author David E. Sutton focuses on micropractices in the kitchen, such as the cutting of onions, the use of a can opener, and the rolling of phyllo dough, along with cultural changes, such as the rise of televised cooking shows, to reveal new perspectives on the anthropology of everyday living.

BIOSynergenics: Guerrilla Anti-Aging keeps it real. . .only better !!! In their quest to retain a youthful appearance and fight the aging process, appearance-conscious, vanity-oriented Baby Boomer's and Generation X-er's are turning more than ever before to plastic surgery, Botox® injections, dermabrasion, chemical and laser peels, and other cosmetic procedures, spending millions upon millions of dollars every year. However, each of those procedures carries with it an inherent risk of danger ~ possible complications from anesthesia and the risk of adverse and irreversible side effects ~ deformity, infection, scarring, pigmentation changes, nerve and muscle injury, etc. And they, and millions of others who cannot afford those expensive cosmetic procedures, are also spending billions of dollars every year on expensive anti-aging lotions, potions and creams, each of which claims to be THE definitive cure. BIOSynergenics: Guerrilla Anti-Aging offers the readers a natural, safe, painless, inexpensive alternative to the knife and needle. In BIOSynergenics: Guerrilla Anti-Aging, Karen Gomez takes the readers on an entertaining journey through a 24-hour day, filled with fascinating factoids and personal anecdotal side-trips. This book is a collection of the best "anti-aging secrets" from her 30-year life experiment with "New Age," as well as ancient, natural anti-aging methods and techniques ~ for both prevention and rejuvenation. Beauty comes from within, starting with how you feel about yourself. After a short lesson on how to make that small, but critical, attitude adjustment, BIOSynergenics: Guerrilla Anti-Aging offers the reader a diverse array of simple, unconventional anti-aging techniques that take only a few minutes a day, are literally at your fingertips, and cost absolutely nothing! BIOSynergenics: Guerrilla Anti-Aging combines elements of the ancient principles of Zen, yoga, color/light therapy, acupressure, reflexology, herbal therapy and naturopathy, with contemporary methods, practices and techniques such as visualization, imagery, "the power of positive thinking," autosuggestion, "self-speak" (what we say to ourselves), with proper breathing techniques, proper skin care, facial exercises, facial massage, and a healthy diet, including vitamins, minerals, supplements, and exercise that, when practiced on a regular basis, can be a renewal or rejuvenation program. Complimenting the anti-aging techniques to be used without, BIOSynergenics: Guerrilla Anti-Aging also contains a diverse array of simple anti-aging techniques to be used within, to minimize free radical damage ~ which is now believed to be the primary cause of aging. By controlling stress and eliminating negativity, utilizing deep breathing exercises, eating properly combined foods at the proper time of the day, avoiding food additives, preservatives and hydrogenated fats, and using other techniques described throughout the book, free radical damage can be kept to a minimum, thereby preventing the structural damage from cellular injury and breakdown which is the cumulative result of free radical damage ~ the wrinkled skin, stiff joints and hardened arteries of old age. What makes BIOSynergenics: Guerrilla Anti-Aging so unique is its author. Go to any bookstore, and you will find two types of books on beauty and anti-aging ~ the book written by the M.D. or Ph.D. which is based solely upon his or her scientific research findings (who usually do not visually typify their findings), and the book "written" by the celebrity du jour, whose recognizable face (after spending how much on plastic surgery, expensive cosmetic procedures, and professional make-up artists???) and name are used to market and sell the book.

Management insights culled from the Mahabharata The Mahabharata, one of the greatest books of all time, is not simply the story of a fratricidal war or a fount of wisdom for philosophers; it is also a comprehensive manual on strategy. From this storehouse of knowledge, Meera Uberoi selects the most pertinent shlokas to reveal the secrets of leadership and the path to success. She shows that the Mahabharata is equal, if not superior, to other management bibles such as The Art of War, The Prince and Go Rin No Sho The Book of Five Rings. The aphorisms in Leadership Secrets from the Mahabharata have been selected from the Santi Parva, the Bhagvad Gita Parva and the Adi Parva. As Bhishma lies dying on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, Krishna realizes that with Bhishma s death, the world will lose 'all knowledge'. To prevent this, Krishna asks him to impart to Yudhisthira all he knows. These teachings, coming as they do from Bhishma, the wisest of them all, contained in the Santi Parva, form the core of Uberoi s book. Apart from detailing how to apply the craft of kingship to modern business practices, the book also explores the analogy between kingship and leadership. Pithy and insightful, Meera Uberoi s selection is a practical guide to leadership in any field of life. The aphorisms, grouped under heads like Duty, War, Espionage and Conduct, deal with eternal values and truths that are as relevant today as they were 3,000 years ago.
