The best military transition field manual. A no-nonsense process for any transitioning military member that is based on real experiences. This audiobook is a true guide for what you need to know, not what an ACAP or TAP instructor has in their script Every military service member will experience three phases as he moves from a military career to a life outside the gate: transition, transformation, and integration. The foundation of Boots to Loafers is built upon these three concepts. They provide the structure for the advice and guidelines I want to convey to you. You may experience each of these to different degrees depending on your wishes, circumstances, goals, and surrounding environment. These three stages will vary from individual to individual, and they will be shaped by one's attitude and inner strength as well as his ability to manage the hurdles of life. From the first day you set foot into boot camp, no matter what service you have been in, until the final days of pre-deployment training exercises or redeployment, you are taught to always pay attention to every detail in every situation. Our military knows how to turn you on and get you fired up for a mission. Transitioning out of boots will require the same focus on details and the energy to get fired up for your next mission, getting a job. More than a decade of war in God knows where in the world and many of America's treasure, our young men and women, will come home and be lost when it comes to preparing for their next fight - finding a job! Many will leave the military voluntarily; more than 1.5 million will leave in the next five years. Boots gives them a helping hand, a guide: their new field manual that I never had when I retired from the US Army and entered corporate America. Let me help them find their new true north. 1.

The single most common and frustrating problem for anyone in business, anyone in a career or job transition, anyone moving back into the workforce, and anyone about to graduate from college... is getting the access they need to prove their abilities. It has become very difficult - sometimes next to impossible - to get in the right people's doors. You may have something to sell, but you can't get past the executive assistant. Or you're looking for a job, but you can't get past human resources. If you can't get in to see the right people, you can't present your product, service, idea or qualifications. That's where Michael A. Boylan's program The Power to Get In takes over. Michael A. Boylan's breakthrough new system for gaining access to the right people will help you cut through bureaucracy, identify the people you most need to see, and meet them face-to-face. The field-tested, proven system found in The Power to Get In works even if you have no referrals, no track record, no credentials, and even little or no experience. Anyone with something to sell, abilities to offer, or ideas to present will find this program an invaluable tool for success. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Boylan.

A leading American evangelical minister - whom public figures long turned to for guidance in faith and politics - recounts his three conversions, from childhood Jewish roots to Christianity, from a pure faith to a highly politicized one, and from the religious right to the simplicity of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Rob Schenck’s extraordinary life has been at the center of the intersection between evangelical Christianity and modern politics. Attacked by partisans on both sides of the aisle, he has been called a "right-wing hate monger", the "ultimate D.C. power-broker", a "traitor", and "turncoat." Now, this influential spiritual adviser to America’s political class chronicles his controversial, sometimes troubling career in this revelatory and often shocking memoir. As a teenager in the 1970s, Schenck converted from Judaism to Christianity and found his calling in public ministry. In the 1980s, he, like his twin brother, became a radical activist leader of the anti-abortion movement. In the wake of his hero Ronald Reagan’s rise to the White House, Schenck became a leading figure in the religious right inside the Beltway. Emboldened by his authority and access to the highest reaches of government, Schenck was a zealous warrior, brazenly mixing ministry with Republican political activism - even confronting President Bill Clinton during a midnight Christmas Eve service at Washington’s National Cathedral. But in the past few years Schenck has undergone another conversion - his most meaningful transition yet. Increasingly troubled by the part he played in the corruption of religion by politics, this man of faith has returned to the purity of the gospel. Like Paul on the Road to Damascus, he had an epiphany: revisiting the lessons of love that Jesus imparted, Schenck realized he had strayed from his deepest convictions. Reaffirming his core spiritual beliefs, Schenck today works to liberate the evangelical community from the oppression of 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Schenck.

Revision with unchanged content. As the population of certified teachers shrinks due to the number reaching re tirement age, alternative certification programs have been proposed and, in some cases, implemented on state and national levels. The Department of De fense Troops to Teachers Program (Troops to Teachers), originally established as a Department of Defense career transition program, was reauthorized as part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Although the program is pri ma ri ly designed to provide quality classroom teachers at the secondary school le vel, the program was neither intended nor designed to certify teachers. The in tent of the national Department of Defense program was to identify se pa ra ting service members meeting a basic transition eligibility framework upon which states could overlay their individual alternative teacher certification cri te ria. Individual states, having developed their own specific certification cri te ria, could more quickly incorporate eligible veterans into their alternative cer ti fi cation program. This study addresses the need to assess the initial competencies of Kentucky s Troops to Teachers-certified teachers against those who were traditionally trained and certified. This book is designed for education professionals concerned with teacher pre paredness.
Public performance-accountability nexus is a hot topic in recent research, but we know little about its antecedents and consequences in developing countries and transition economies. Are top-down appointed political elites taken accountable for public service performance in authoritarian nations like China? The question is theoretically and empirically examined in the book. I argue that government cadres are appropriately appraised and promoted even with the lame democracy. Using a novel dataset and event history analysis method, I test the performance-based political promotion tournament theory and its contingent features. I find that career advancement of provincial leading officials is positively influenced by public service performance but not by economic performance. The effect is stronger for Party secretaries than governors, for central connected officials than local officials, for younger than older, and for short tenure in office than long serving. The performance-promotion nexus in relatively weak and contingent on contextual attributes, suggesting performance-based reform should be deepened to make local agents accountable for public service delivery and responsiveness.
The Nebraska National Guard has been in service to the state since its creation by the territorial legislature. Its official Federal involvement goes back to the turn of the century. The period of the Guard's existence covered in this book concerns the so-called "interwar years" between the two World Wars. Major General Herbert J. Paul as Adjutant General of the Guard from 1919 to 1938 shaped the interwar Guard, so his career intertwines with the history of the Guard. The policies and decisions Paul made affected the Guard from the post-World War I mobilization to the eve of World War II. This work will examine the Guard's evolution from the typical "citizen soldiers" portrayed in period recruiting to a professional, modern and well-trained force that was called out four times in the interwar years due to civil unrest and natural disaster. By 1940, the Guard was prepared for induction into federal service for the Second World War. Examining the major personalities, events, and actions of the Guard during this period presents a portrait of an organization in transition and modernization as the greatest cataclysm of the 20th Century bore down upon the country.
This volume focuses on the contribution of German-speaking refugees from Nazism to the performing arts in Britain, evaluating their role in broadcasting, theatre, film and dance from 1933 to the present. It contains essays evaluating the role of refugee artists in the BBC German Service, including the actor Martin Miller, the writer Bruno Adler and the journalist Edmund Wolf. Miller also made a career in the English theatre transcending the barrier of language, as did the actor Gerhard Hinze, whose transition to the English stage is an instructive example of adaptation to a new theatre culture. In film, language problems were mitigated by the technical possibilities of the medium, although stars like Anton Walbrook received coaching in English. Certainly, technicians from Central Europe, like the cameraman Wolf Suschitzky, helped establish the character of British film in the 1950s and 1960s. In dance theatre, language played little role, facilitating the influence in Britain of dance practitioners like Kurt Jooss and Sigurd Leeder. Finally, evaluating the reverse influence of émigrés on Germany, two essays discuss Erich Fried's translations of Shakespeare and Peter Zadek's early theatre career in Germany.
