You have the followers - we show you how to make the money With over 150 million users across several continents, LinkedIn is one of the premier social networks on the World Wide Web. The professional aspect of social networking functioned as a core concept behind LinkedIn wherein professionals could connect with other professionals.

The social network aids in the development of a candidate on two levels, professionally and personally. While the former influences your career and the path you take at an organization, the latter focuses more on the development of trust.

From the introduction: Jerry Thompson: ´´Discovering the wang-dang-doodle jams of the Pointer Sisters shifted my entire focus. Stunning black women were scatting and bebopping all the way into my soul. I think what we´ve put together in Oakland Noir is a volume where this city is a character in every story. He´s a slick brother strutting over a bacon-grease bass line and tambourine duet. She´s a white chick with a bucket of hot muffins heading to farmer and flea markets, to sell crafts and get hooked up with some fine kat with dreadlocks and a criminal record. And it´s in the faces of young fearless muthaf - kers pounding keyboards and snapping fingers, lips, Snapchats, and Facebook timelines. It´s the core of not only Black Lives Matter but all lives matter. We are the children of fantasy and of the funk.´´ Eddie Muller: ´´These days, writers and [listeners] aren´t denying the darker parts of our existence as much as they used to, especially in crime fiction. Some writers just do it for fun because it´s become the fashionable way to get published. You know, ´gritty violence´ and all that bullshit. The genuine darkness in noir stories comes from two places - the cruelty of the world´s innate indifference and the cruelty that people foster within thems... 1. Language: English.

Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload? Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilised? Do you ever feel busy but not productive? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is to become an essentialist. In Essentialism, Greg McKeown, CEO of a leadership and strategy agency in Silicon Valley who has run courses at Apple, Google and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking. It means challenging the core assumptions of ´´we can have it all´´ and ´´I have to do everything´´ and replacing them with the pursuit of ´´the right thing in the right way at the right time´´. By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter. Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovative companies and organisations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialism into practice in your own life, so you, too, can achieve something great. 1.

What will motivate an organization’s employees to be fully engaged in the corporate purpose? How can a company be less ´´Big Brother knows best´´ and more supportive of individual employees’ pursuit of workplace meaning? Pioneer business strategist Theodore Roosevelt Malloch’s Service Leadership answers these questions and more. ´´Service leadership´´ is the service of the diversity of interests of employees and their quest for purpose under the corporate umbrella. An organization will not get the most out of its workforce unless it respects and facilitates each individual’s framework for the pursuit of meaning, which is often done in the context of spirituality and religion. Malloch examines spirituality in Western culture in terms of broad societal trends - the context within which people engage in their individual discernment of meaning. Service leadership takes many forms and is not the same for everyone. People can and want to learn how to become service leaders. Both a practitioner and a professor, Malloch shows how these ideas can be implemented through a detailed framework. His extensive research has confirmed that organizations that do not address the existing core belief systems of employees will be disadvantaged in the marketplace. Interviews with and analysis of top executives at organizations like Whole Foods, Facebook, Gloria Jean’s Coffee, and Costco shed light on how both companies and employees can utilize service leadership to find and keep meaning in the workplace, improving both job happiness and performance. 1.

In Peace Is Power: A Course in Shifting Reality Through Science and Spirituality, best-selling author Michelle Paisley Reed shares inspired, timeless wisdom to teach us how our internal world creates our external experiences--individually and collectively. Instead of fighting and resisting what you don´t want, we encourage you to hold a united vision of what you desire, for yourself as well as our world. Using the Law of Attraction as outlined in Manifesting Miracles and Money, this book moves beyond manifesting things, opportunities, and adventures toward shifting our entire earth´s reality from strife to one of peaceful co-existence and harmony. In this book you´ll learn more than 120 lessons including: The Truth is that at your core, you are Love. At your core, underneath all the labels and judgments and opinions and negative emotions, you are peace. You are all one energy field, manifesting in differing creative outlets. Just as you may choose to save or discard an email, to block and delete a Facebook friend, or keep them in your networking circle, so, too, may you block and delete a negative thought that doesn´t serve you. You´ll discover a powerful visualization: seeing your friends, former friends, loved ones, family members--and yes, even your ´´enemies´´ - bathed in Light and Love, bringing you emotional and spiritual healing and lasting inner peace. Non-resistance is the key to inner peace, and it is the same for external peace in your world of seemingly different (only on the outside) people. Only peace lasts. Only peace is forever. Give up the ´´fight,´´ and you will know peace. Be present in your current state of ´´now,´´ in the highest and best version of you in the highest and best dimension you can tap into, and be pleased. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. Avit.

No doubt, each of us has come in contact with Artificial Intelligence (AI) - whether it is by shopping Online and seeing "suggested for you" products, or ads popping up in your Facebook feed, or at the bank when we are making a check deposit at the ATM. Other industries, ranging from health to fitness - to media - to dating apps - to finance have all adopted AI in some capacity to optimize and automate their processes. Artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science that aims to create in intelligent machines. It has become an essential part of the technology industry. Research associated with artificial intelligence is highly technical and specialized. The core problems of artificial intelligence include programming computers for certain traits such as: Knowledge Reasoning Problem solving Perception Learning Planning, and the ability to manipulate and move objects Knowledge engineering is a core part of AI research. Machines can often act, and react like humans only if they have abundant information relating to the world. Artificial intelligence must have access to objects, categories, properties, and relations between all of them to implement knowledge engineering. Initiating common sense, reasoning, and problem-solving power in machines is a difficult and tedious approach. Machine learning is another core part of AI. Learning without any kind of supervision requires an ability to identify patterns in streams of inputs, whereas learning with adequate supervision involves classification and numerical regressions. Classification determines the category an object belongs to, and regression deals with obtaining a set of numerical input or output examples, thereby discovering functions enabling the generation of suitable outputs from respective inputs. Mathematical analysis of machine learning algorithms, and their performance i... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Devin Smith.
