Whether the issue of the day on Twitter, Facebook, or cable news is our sexuality, political divides, or the perceived conflict between faith and science, today's media pushes each one of us into a frustrating clash between two opposing sides. Polarizing, us-against-them discussions divide us and distract us from thinking clearly and communicating lovingly with others. Scott Sauls, like many of us, is weary of the bickering and is seeking a way of truth and beauty through the conflicts. Jesus Outside the Lines presents Jesus as this way. Sauls shows us how the words and actions of Jesus reveal a response that does not perpetuate the destructive fray. Jesus offers us a way forward - away from harshness, caricatures, and stereotypes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Larry Wayne.

When the internet suddenly stops working, society reels from the loss of flowing data and streaming entertainment. Addicts wander the streets talking to themselves in 140 characters or forcing cats to perform tricks for their amusement, while the truly desperate pin their requests for casual encounters on public bulletin boards. The economy tumbles and the government passes the draconian NET Recovery Act. For Gladstone, the Net’s disappearance comes particularly hard, following the loss of his wife, leaving his flask of Jamesons and grandfather’s fedora as the only comforts in his Brooklyn apartment. But there are rumors that someone in New York is still online. Someone set apart from this new world where Facebook flirters "poke" each other in real life and members of Anonymous trade memes at secret parties. Where a former librarian can sell information as a human search engine and the perverted fulfill their secret fetishes at the blossoming Rule 34 club. With the help of his friends - a blogger and a webcam girl, both now out of work - Gladstone sets off to find the Internet. But is he the right man to save humanity from this Apocalypse? For those of you wondering if you have WiFi right now, Wayne Gladstone’s Notes from the Internet Apocalypse examines the question "What is life without the Web?" 1. Language: English.

Great for all ages.Your New BFFs - 500 Millionaire Mentors.It helps to have powerful friends, so we’re giving you 500.Before writing Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill interviewed 500 of the world’s wealthiest people. He tossed that knowledge into a blender and poured out 13 - count ‘em - 13 Success Principles used by virtually every millionaire who ever lived during that time.His big, fat, brilliant book sold over 100 million copies.But that was then.Nowadays, who the heck has time to read that much? (Seriously, you have important cat videos to watch on Facebook).So, we’ve taken Hill’s “Millionaire Secrets”, whittled down the main principles and highlighted key passages. Then we made it relatable with fun, modern day examples to fast track your success and still leave you enough time to stream you favorite videos.If you have too much to do, but have FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) - then this simple and enjoyable, but life changing listen is for you.“Your thoughts are incredibly powerful. Choose yours wisely. Change Your Mind, Change Your Life." (Dr. Joe Dispenza, New York Times best-selling author)Much like we still study Freud for psychology or Einstein for science, many of our most famous and brilliant speakers still reference the principles in Think and Grow Rich.Napoleon Hill’s book has become the basis for much of the self-help advice we have heard from such people as Wayne Dyer, Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, Jack Canfield, Kyle Cease, Joel Osteen Dr. Joe Dispenza, Eric Worre, Les Brown, Brian Tracey, Louise Hay, and many others.For example, in the book, You Are the Placebo, Dr. Joe Dispenza explains how he hooked up monitors to people’s brains to prove what Hill wrote in 1937 about how our thoughts are life changing.Bo Eason, in There’s No Plan B, discusses the burning desire mentioned in Hill’s book and the need for having a clear plan. 1.

New Renaissance Corporation Publishing and #1 Best-selling author James Scott offer you the definitive guide for instilling and nurturing strategic executive leadership qualities in your child’s daily life. We are shaping tomorrow’s leaders, today! Powerful, dynamic CEOs aren't born that way; they are carefully nurtured and sculpted. Even the Jack Welches and Bill Gates' of the world were once just motivated kids looking for the tools they needed to fulfill their dreams and turn their ideas into reality. Too often, adults dismiss the natural skills and "out-of-the-box" business ideas of youth, simply because of the entrepreneur's age. America needs to stop and take note of these up-and-coming business titans and give them the encouragement and training they need to rise to their full potential. In 1976, 16-year-old Steve Jobs, along with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, founded Apple Computer in Jobs' parents' garage. That collaboration would eventually launch the Macintosh computer, iTunes, the iPod, the iPad and other devices that have become all, but essential to the way we live. In 2005, People magazine called Jobs the "Father of the Digital Age." More recently, Mark Zuckerberg was just 19 years old when he launched what would become Facebook in his Harvard University dorm room in 2003. By age 23, Zuckerberg was a billionaire and named by Time magazine as one of the wealthiest and most influential men in the world. His creation now helps more than one billion individuals and businesses interact with one another and has changed the way the world communicates. Encouraging the next generation of business leaders has never been more important. As business becomes more global - and more competitive - we need the best and brightest minds at work for America. That means encouraging the dreams of our young men and women and making the tools they need to succeed available to them. Parents, teachers and business professiona 1. Language: English.

Etsy is an online retail community just like eBay only that it focuses on vintage or handcrafted commodities. Most of the goods sold are in the jewelry, arts, crafts, housewares, artisan candies, baked goods, or paper-goods categories.

Etsy also provides a great avenue for you to sell your homemade goods - but that’s not all. You can find a limitless number of items on Etsy that will help your home business. For instance, if you use The Happy Planner, Filofax, or Erin Condren to schedule and organize your life or business, there are downloadable stickers and inserts that you can buy and use in your planner.
