    The 6-hour MBA is for everyone in the work place. It demystifies management and challenges current assumptions. In order for organizations to achieve their potential, they must put in place systems that enable their employees to reach their potential. The current assumption by many organizations is that employees are paid to do what they are told, this prevents the organization from availing itself to the full potential of the worker. The 6-hour MBA challenges this and introduces the concept of leadership. In easy to understand language, it explains the fundamental and critical concepts of management so that they can be understood by all.
    In 2001, Darin Mickey, a photographer, musician and teacher at the International Center of Photography and Cooper Union in New York, began to document his father''s life at work and at home. Stuff I Gotta Remember Not to Forget is a portrait of Ken Mickey, who sells storage space in converted caves and abandoned mines throughout Kansas. We follow Darin following his father as he makes cold calls, watches television, attends meetings at the Masonic Termple, drives through underground tunnels and drinks his scotch on the rocks. Mickey''s pictures deftly capture the emotions that an adult experiences around his parents; there is an unfamiliarity with the familiar, and the vying feelings of attraction and rejection of where one comes from. The title of this volume--taken from a Ziggy comic bulletin board--implies both the ambivalence and urgency of what family means once one leaves the fold. As much a memoir of Mickey''s family life as a portrait of a salesman, Stuff I Gotta Remember Not to Forget is a document of the suburban Midwest, in turns honest, ridiculous and tender.
    Accessory liability in the private law is of great importance. Claimants often bring claims against third parties who participate in wrongs. For example, the ''direct wrongdoer'' may be insolvent, so a claimant might prefer a remedy against an accessory in order to obtain satisfactory redress. However, the law in this area has not received the attention it deserves. The criminal law recognises that any person who ''aids, abets, counsels or procures'' any offence can be punished as an accessory, but the private law is more fragmented. One reason for this is a tendency to compartmentalise the law of obligations into discrete subjects, such as contract, trusts, tort and intellectual property. This book suggests that by looking across such boundaries in the private law, the nature and principles of accessory liability can be better understood and doctrinal confusion regarding the elements of liability, defences and remedies resolved. Winner of the Joint Second SLS Peter Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship 2015.

    PAIN LASTS LONGER THAN LOVE. “LeVoit’s work exists at the center of a glowing nexus where fever dream punk rock poetry collides with raw emotion and vertiginous talent.” —Jeremy Robert Johnson, author of Skullcrack CitySet in and around Hollywood Forever Cemetery, this tense and mind-bending noir is Violet LeVoit at her finest: an unnerving, unpredictable and comic journey through deep trauma and glitzy nostalgic insanity.“I Miss The World is a gut-punch, throat-punch, heart- punch of a novel. LeVoit knows how to seduce you with a lullaby when she’s going for blood.” —Danger Slater, author of Puppet Skin “It is masterful, it is beautiful and awful, it is sweepingly and breathtakingly artistic, the impact of seeing some great natural wonder or work of art for the first time.” —The Horror Fiction Review “Revelatory, gut-punching, brilliantly anarchic perfection.” —J David Osborne, author of Black Gum “A crushing journey into the beauty and horror of nostalgia.” —LitReactor"The hype does not disappoint." —The Big Smoke
    THE EXTRAORDINARY TALE OF SYLVIA BROOKE, THE LAST WHITE RULER OF THE JUNGLE KINGDOM OF BORNEOSylvia Brooke was one of the more exotic and outrageous figures of the twentieth century. Otherwise known as the Ranee of Sarawak, she was the wife of Sir Vyner Brooke, the last White Rajah, whose family had ruled the jungle kingdom of Sarawak on Borneo for three generations. They had their own flag, revenue, postage stamps, and money, as well as the power of life and death over their subjects-Malays, Chinese, and headhunting Dyak tribesmen. The regime of the White Rajahs was long romanticized, but by the 1930s, their power and prestige were crumbling. At the center of Sarawak''s decadence was Sylvia, author of eleven books, mother to three daughters, an extravagantly dressed socialite whose behavior often offended and usually defied social convention. Sylvia did her best to manipulate the line of succession in favor of her daughters, but by 1946, Japan had invaded Sarawak, sending Sylvia and her husband into exile, ending one of the more unusual chapters of British colonial rule.Philip Eade''s Sylvia, Queen of the Headhunters is a fascinating look at the wild and debauched world of a woman desperate to maintain the last remains of power in an exotic and dying kingdom.

    This book complements the first volume in the series, on case-control studies, and the two together provide a comprehensive account of the analysis of the major types of study in cancer epidemiology. In addition, this volume has a chapter on study design, covering both the case-control and cohort approach. The scope ranges from an account of the elementary and descriptive approaches to cohort analysis to the fitting of regression models for incidence rates with general risk functions. Particular attention is given to the use of a case-control approach embedded in a cohort study. As in the first volume, all the methods described are illustrated by examples from real studies, and the data from these studies are provided in appendices to enable the reader to go through the computations themselves. The book is intended for the medical epidemiologist with an interest in the quantitative aspects of the subject, and the statistician who is looking for a reasonably complete development of the statistical concepts and methods in current use in this area of epidemiology.
    The old Bridgewater Trustees mineral railways were to become the Central Railways of the huge Manchester Collieries concern, which was formed in March 1929. The landscape with its changing, suddenly abrupt and often fierce gradients was to be a cruel one for these colliery locomotives which were worked virtually constantly to their limits. From Worsley to Linnyshaw Colliery, east of Walkden, the average gradient had been 1 in 52 with the occasional 1 in 30 stretch! The locomotives were varied but post-war included many of the Hunslet-designed Austerity, as well as a series of ex-North Staffordshire Railway locomotives. Alan Davies, in a companion volume to his previous work on Walken Yard itself, tells the story of the locomotives that were based there, were maintained and repaired there and that sometimes finished their working lives at Walkden Yard.

    The word ?dominance,? in the context of genetics, has been used for a long time applied to characters or to alleles. A dominant character masks the expression of an alternative form. This loose definition would even apply when these alternatives are not determined by alleles of the same locus. In turn, a dominant allele refers to an alternative version at the same locus. This dual usage has led, as expected, to some confusion and shows how statistics can complement verbal definitions. Mendel, the pioneer of genetics, did not know the bases of the phenomenon of dominance. Nor was he completely certain to look at characters defined by alleles. But the ubiquity of the phenomenon caused him to elevate his observations to the category of laws, that went, unfortunately, unnoticed until they were rediscovered decades later. Today, dominance and recessivity are concepts commonly used and not only by geneticists. Yet a question remains: do we really understand the mechanisms of dominance? The Biology of Genetic Dominance seeks to answer this question through observation and insight. Its main driving force has been the enthusiasm of an international assembly of scholars who have agreed to write down their thoughts so as to enlighten our comprehension of dominance. The ambition of this collection of essays is to help in the understanding of the bases of mendelian dominance as a pre-requisite to better understand the more complex non-mendelian inheritance. This book relies upon self-contained chapters. They can be considered, in the context of the whole, as separate documents.

    The witchcraft confessions given by Isobel Gowdie in Auldearn, 1662, are widely celebrated as the most extraordinary on record in Britain and this book provides the first full-length examination of the confessions and the life and character of the woman behind them. Their descriptive power, vivid imagery, and contentious subject matter have attracted considerable interest on both academic and popular levels. The author’s discovery of the original trial records, deemed lost for nearly 200 years, provides a starting point for an interdisciplinary endeavor to separate Isobel’s voice from that of her interrogators, identify the beliefs and experiences that informed her testimony, and analyze why her confessions differ so markedly from those of other witchcraft suspects from the period. In the course of these enquiries, the author develops wider hypotheses relevant to the study of early modern witchcraft as a whole, with recent research into Amazonian “dark” shamanism, false-memory generation, and mutual-dream experience, along with literature on marriage-covenant mysticism and protection-charm traditions, all being brought to the investigation of early modern witch-records for the first time. Author Emma Wilby concludes that close analysis of Isobel’s confessions supports the still-controversial hypothesis that in 17th-century Scotland, as in other parts of Europe in this period, popular spirituality was shaped through a deep interaction between church teachings and shamanistic traditions of pre-Christian origin. She also extends this thesis beyond its normal association with beneficent magic and overtly folkloric themes to speculate that some of Europe’s more malevolent and demonological witch-narratives may also have emerged out of visionary rites underpinned by cogent shamanistic rationales.

    “It is important to establish where you came from to understand where you’re going,” according to author, Jimi Little. In doing so, Little’s memoir captures the indomitable spirit of Black People from slavery to the twenty-first century. This memoir is an unapologetic look at growing up Black in Columbus, Ohio in the 40s, and 50s during a period of apartheid America. Follow Little’s journey from Columbus, Ohio to Los Angeles, as he learned many life lessons about overcoming obstacles and hurdles to become a successful business person. His maternal grandfather, James Edward Gibson, known as "Gibby," who was part of the South-to-North migration of Blacks, settled in Columbus, Ohio. As a survivor of the Great Depression, Gibby was to become the family patriarch, historian and mentor to the author. Later, as a single father, Gibby raised his only daughter, Mary Alice Gibson, alone. In her second year of college, she married her longtime boyfriend, Joseph Arthur Little. The author was the second of seven children born to this union. With the loving presence of a maternal and paternal grandparent, Little was reared in the heart of a warm, two-parent family in Middle America. As a good student, he attended an all-Black Catholic school up until the eleventh grade. Shortly after graduating from high school, he married and had 4 children at a young age. Fortunately, this did not derail Little’s desire to move up in life. He went on to college, then obtained a degree, while working full-time at the Post Office and, at the same time, raising a young family. Subsequently, his marriage ended in divorce. Following his divorce, Jimi continued to move up on his job, and even became a part-owner in a nightclub in Columbus, but, always a dreamer, he became restless. Destiny called for him to head west. After moving to Northern California, then later settling in Los Angeles, Little went on to become a successful entrepreneur in the check cashing business and later, in the pizza restaurant business. “This is not only a story of the importance of family, this is a story of overcoming great odds to achieve success. It shows Jimi Little’s part in the symphony of The American Dream vis-à-vis the Black experience. Little is definitely an unsung hero.” Dr. Maxine Thompson, Black Butterfly Press
