What do you do when your planet runs out of women? Send for takeout, of course. Kash knows he'll never be allowed to claim a mate. A lifetime of military service has left him too battle-scarred and broken to be considered for the off-world mating project his rulers have created to save their people. His job is to make sure the more fortunate males get to Earth to retrieve their mates. All he has to do is pilot the ship, stay undetected, and keep an eye on things from orbit. It should be the easiest mission of his career...until he lays eyes on the one thing he never expected to find. His mate. This book contains a hopeful romantic who is giving up hope, and a soldier who is about to discover that love doesn't obey orders, and it can't be bound by rules. 1. Language: English.

An Irish officer in the British Army, Major General Robert Ross (1766-1814) was a charismatic leader widely admired for his bravery in battle. Despite a military career that included distinguished service in Europe and North Africa, Ross is better known for his actions than his name: His 1814 campaign in the Chesapeake Bay resulted in the burning of the White House and Capitol and the unsuccessful assault on Baltimore, immortalized in “The Star Spangled Banner”. The Man Who Captured Washington is the first in-depth biography of this important but largely forgotten historical figure.Drawing from a broad range of sources, both British and American, military historians John McCavitt and Christopher T. George provide new insight into Ross’ career prior to his famous exploits at Washington, DC. In detailing this campaign, McCavitt and George clear up a number of misconceptions, including the claim that the British burned the entire city of Washington. Finally, the authors shed new light on the long-debated circumstances surrounding Ross’s death on the eve of the Battle of North Point at Baltimore.Ross’ campaign on the shores of the Chesapeake lasted less than a month, but its military and political impact was enormous. 1.

After inheriting a crumbling lighthouse, Dr. Ben Garrison is more than ready to get rid of it until he meets a determined Marci Weber who wants to save the landmark. Can she make him see her point of view? A crumbling lighthouse is not part of the inheritance Army doctor Ben Garrison expects to claim when he journeys to Hope Harbor. Fresh out of the service, he wants only to unload the tower of bricks, decompress from years of treating battlefield trauma, and prepare to launch his civilian career. Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home - and she's determined to save the Pelican Point landmark. Sparks fly as the two go head to head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. And as they work together, might Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls? Best-selling author Irene Hannon invites listeners back to their favorite town for a story that will light a beacon of hope within their hearts. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Therese Plummer.

8 Million students in grades 4-12 cannot comprehend grade level reading material. 440 Thousand students sitting in American classrooms K-12 have a total reading vocabulary of less than fifty words. 3 Thousand students drop out of school each day. 40 Percent of African-American and Latino students will not graduate on time or with a regular high school diploma. 25 Times the likelihood that non-readers and high school students testing below the twentieth percentile will drop out of school. Every day students across the country are being labeled and put into 'special' programs. The gap between those students and their peers reading at grade level simply continues to grow until the gap seems too large to overcome. Often these students begin acting out in class because they have learned that it is better to go one on one with the principal versus being embarrassed and frustrated in front of their peers. It is not the fault of the student, teacher, or parent. We must stop looking for the reason to justify the failure and find a way to over come it. Simply labeling students Dyslexic, Learning Disabled, and Autistic will not offer them a reading solution. These students do not need remediation; they need an accelerated compensatory approach to mastering language and reading skills. Dr. Joe Lockavitch has been in the trenches with non-readers, their families, and their teachers for over thirty years. Students in the bottom reading percentiles (0-15th %) are slipping through the cracks right before our eyes. Based on his experiences in the classroom with non-readers, Dr. Lockavitch (former college professor, school psychologist, special education director) researched and developed a new reading methodology targeting non-readers of all ages. Highly structured, repetitious, and non-phonic, The Failure Free Reading Methodology is an accelerated language program designed to give students, parents, and teachers the hope and the results they deserve. Dr. Lockavitch has seen it all. Throughout his career he has given reading demonstrations in places that have ranged from the heart of the Mississippi Delta, inner city schools in Detroit and Chicago, maximum-security prisons in South Carolina, and after school programs in Los Angeles, California. He will only do a demonstration under one condition and make only one claim, 'I'll only work with your worst students. If you don't see immediate improvement in their reading ability within 30 minutes, I'll walk out the door.' He hasn't walked out yet. Dr. Joseph F. Lockavitch, a former classroom teacher, school psychologist, university professor, special education director, and applied researcher, is the author and developer of: The Failure Free Reading Program, Don't Close the Book on Your Not-Yet Readers, Joseph's Readers Talking Software for Non-Readers, Verbal Master-An Accelerated Vocabulary Program, and The Test of Lateral Awareness and Directionality. Dr. Lockavitch is also the author of numerous published research articles. Dr. Lockavitch has spent the past thirty years training thousands of teachers, parents and administrators across the nation on how to meet the unique needs of America's non-readers. Featured on the PBS NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and mentioned on national radio shows such as: Tom Joyner, Dr. Laura, Mike Gallagher, and Michael Medved, Dr. Lockavitch holds a Doctorate of Education from Boston University and a Master of Science in Special Education from Southern Connecticut State. In addition, Failure Free Reading is one of the nation's most approved Supplemental Educational Service providers - directly serving over ten thousand students and clocking close to three hundred thousand tutoring hours.

From Products to Services
33,00 CHF *

During the last thirty years, a wide range of product companies throughout the Western economies have considered moving into or setting up service businesses. Some have rejected the idea after careful consideration, some have wandered into competitive services without any real idea of what is involved and others have deliberately executed a carefully considered strategic manoeuvre. Included in this debate are some of the most famous business names in the western world: Unisys, Ericsson, Michelin, Nokia and HP. For IBM it was Lou Gerstener's 'big bet'; at GE it was one of former CEO Jack Welch's 'four major strategies' and, at General Motors, the financial services arm was its most profitable business for many years. Yet very little has been published on this profound transition. As a result, myths and idiocies abound. Some routinely claim that the 'evolution from products through services to solutions' is inevitable. Others think that manufacturing is being outsourced to China and India while American or European teenagers face a career in hamburger stalls. The truth is much more fascinating. To succeed in a service business, most functions of a product company need to change. Operations, management, recruitment, finance, sales, new product development and marketing must all be adjusted. So the move into service therefore involves huge risk caused by disruptive and radical change. What has pushed realistic business people in such widely different industrial sectors to take so large a risk? Does their experience contain lessons or warnings for others? Is the trend likely to continue and affect other parts of the world as their economies develop? Will India, China or other developing economies need to learn how to export service once their manufacturing industries mature? Written by a successful businessman who has been at the heart of these changes in several companies and, with case studies from companies like IBM, Unilever, BT, Michelin, Ericsson and Nokia, this book explores the experience of those who have made the transition; and some who have resisted it. It covers in depth subjects such as: strategic focus, change management, service operations, branding a service business, service sales and service marketing. It is the first major work on this subject. 'This book is a 'must read' for those considering the plunge into service growth and innovation. Even those companies that have already taken the plunge will gain fresh perspective' --Jim Spohrer, Director, IBM Almaden Research Centre, USA 'Laurie Young details in very practical ways the reasons and methodologies for change ... I would recommend this book to every one of my customers.' --Douglas Morse, Managing Principal for the Services Transformation and Innovation Group LLC 'I am thrilled with the publication of this much needed book. In my work with businesses around the globe, I find that grappling with the challenge of transforming a company from products to services is a compelling priority for increasing numbers of firms.' --Stephen W. Brown, PhD, Carson Chair, Professor and Executive Director, Center for Services Leadership, W. P. Carey School of Business, Arizona State University

Unfit Commander

Ever since George W. Bush began running for public office in the 1990s, questions have been raised in the public eye about his service in the Air National Guard during the late 1960s and early 1970s -- when countless American soldiers (John Kerry among them) were serving heroically in Vietnam. By the time of the presidential race in 2000, it was clear that Bush's record of service contained several troubling gaps -- especially in the period between May 1972 and May 1973, when Bush was supposed to have transferred to the Alabama Air National Guard. In early 2004, as the election season heated up, the White House bowed to pressure and released a host of documents related to Bush's service, promising that this disclosure would put the matter to rest. Yet the documents raised as many new questions as they answered. Now, for the first time, the comprehensive written record of George W. Bush's military career -- more than 250 pages in all -- is presented in book form. In his introduction and commentary, longtime activist and author Glenn W. Smith, the founder of Texans for Truth, highlights such questions as: How did Bush secure his acceptance into the National Guard, despite a long waiting list? Did his father pull strings, as some have alleged, to help him avoid the draft? Why did Bush suddenly stop performing his Guard service from mid-1972 to mid-1973, as the documents show? Did Bush truly perform sufficient duties to qualify for the honorable discharge he received, or was he given special consideration? In the summer of 1972, Bush failed to appear for his required physical, and was consequently suspended from flying. Why didn't he take the physical? And why has he claimed that he kept flying for the Guard? If Bush was present at the National Guard base in Montgomery, Alabama, during the disputed period, why has no one accepted the White House's pleas to step forward and confirm that he was there? And how do the now-discredited 'Killian documents,' first aired on 60 Minutes in September 2004, affect our understanding of Bush's Guard status? Unfit Commander also tracks the Bush administration's efforts to defuse the controversy, from Bush's own claim that he 'put in his time,' to the White House's record of unyielding non-denial denials despite the persistent questioning of the press. And at the heart of the book are the documents themselves: from Bush's agreement that 'failure to satisfactorily complete [full] pilot training will result in my being discharged,' to his supervisor's statement that 'Lt Bush has not been observed at this unit' during the critical period. A provocative exploration of this commander in chief's spotty record of personal military service, Unfit Commander is the place to start for anyone interested in getting at the truths of President Bush's character.
