“This book undid me in all the best ways. Everything is an Emergency is a brilliant, honest, necessary book that exposes the intricacies of the human brain while showing us the way creativity and friendship can anchor us. This is a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered if they see the world a little differently.” –Ada Limón A New Yorker cartoonist illustrates his lifelong struggle with OCD in cartoon vignettes frank and funny Jason Adam Katzenstein is just trying to live his life, but he keeps getting sidetracked by his over-active, anxious brain. Mundane events like shaking hands or sharing a drink snowball into absolute catastrophes. Jason has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, a mental illness that compels him to perform rituals in order to protect himself from dangers that don’t really exist. He checks, washes, over-thinks, rinse, repeat. He does his best to hide his embarrassing compulsions, and sometimes this even works. He grows up, worries about his first kiss, falls in love with making cartoons, moves to New York City — which is magical and gross, etc. All the while, half his energy goes into living his life, while the other half is devoted to the increasingly ridiculous rituals he’s decided to maintain to keep himself from fully short-circuiting, Then, he fully short-circuits. At his absolute lowest, Jason finally decides to do the things he’s always been told to do to get better: exposure therapy and medication. These are the things that have always freaked him out, and they continue to freak him out. Also, they help him recover. Everything is an Emergency is a comic about all the self-destructive stories someone tells himself, over and over, until they start to seem true. In images surreal, witty, and confessional, Jason shows us that OCD can be funny, even when it feels like it’s ruining your life.

A New Yorker cartoonist brings to life his struggle with OCD through his arresting drawings and inimitable comedic voice, illuminating his daily battle to feel comfortable in the world--and ultimately make room for a life without limitations. Shaking hands, second dates, using the public restroom.... For most people, these are ordinary routines of daily life. But for Jason Katzenstein, these mundane events are a cause for alarm. In short: his brain is broken. But his brain is also creative, and so devises a coping mechanism to protect itself from the worst thoughts and feelings by performing rituals called "compulsions" that help Jason work through fears of contamination, guilt, panic, and relationships. Yes: Jason has OCD. For a while, Jason's solution is to hide his more embarrassing compulsions, and simply adjust expectations for what his life will look like. That doesn't seem so bad considering his worst bits were also turning him into a successful cartoonist. But for Jason, making art isn't just something he's good at: it's a survival tactic--an oasis in the anxiety-filled desert. But just when Jason thinks he has this OCD all figured out, all hell breaks loose. Sometimes it's on a crowded subway car, sometimes it's when he has to care for a stray kitten. Hard to predict. Even harder to live with. Finally, Jason dives into the difficult work he's long put off: exposure therapy, medication, and group therapy. And to no one's great surprise, he finds that this stuff actually works! In fact, for the first time, he feels like he's swimming instead of treading water, or even drowning. Activities that have always felt off-limits begin to feel less so: maybe I can be a father one day, fall in love, use the bathroom at a bar! Insightful, hilarious, and moving, Everything Is an Emergency is Jason's way of showing us that OCD can be funny in addition to being difficult, and though there might be dead ends and deep holes, there are also ways out of these holes. And as Jason has discovered, while unmaking habits is hard, nothing worth doing is ever easy.

"Unprecedented" is the adjective most often ascribed to everything about Donald Trump. Trump @ Work is about the unprecedented impact that Donald Trump and his Presidency and style has had on attitudes and perceptions of leadership and management. This book brings a unique perspective about what has changed and what has not changed through humorous and true "bullets" and observations. Why do some leaders get fired for things that other leaders boast about? In spite of controversy, why do some initiatives still get implemented? Is implementation all that matters? Is empathy and credibility still critical to success? Why aren’t there any instruction manuals about how to navigate the new workplace? These are not questions raised by just a few. These are questions everyone in the workplace is asking. Trump @ Work explores these questions and many more. It reveals how the rules of the game have changed for everyone seeking success or at least, to survive. It’s hard enough to keep up with leadership and management trends. Donald Trump is making it more difficult, not intentionally, not through the tweets he writes, but by how he is challenging the long existing norms. Who knew that tweeting would become an established way of communicating to an organization? Who knew that in spite of constant searing criticism, one can disregard it and continue to follow an agenda? Who knew that preaching to supporters and ignoring naysayers is a way to manage? Whether you appreciate Donald Trump or not, he has had an impact on the thinking about leadership and management and the author precisely explores that impact in this book.

A Woman is loving, caring, charming, adorable, cute, magnificent, marvelous, exciting, splendid, understanding, strong, exotic, fabulous and much more. Without women around, this world would be bland; lifeless in the emotional sense - no drama, no bliss, no color, and no true joy - in fact, nothing worth living or dying for! So, “WHAT DO WOMEN WANT?” How to make a Woman Happy? Find out, NOW!!

REVISION 11 HIGHLIGHTS Highlights of new material in this edition of Florida Family Law and Practice include: The Florida Supreme Court implements standalone Family Law Rules of Procedure, effective March 16, 2017. With a few exceptions, the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure no longer apply in family law cases. Effective July 1, 2017, the Florida Supreme Court adopts Rule Regulating the Florida Bar 4-1.9 and Florida Family Law Rule of Procedure 12.745 both addressing the Collaborative Law Process. A California home, transferred by a husband and wife before dissolution to a revocable trust with wife as sole trustee was not marital property subject to equitable distribution. The standard for reviewing a trial court’s determination of whether property was an interspousal gift subject to equitable distribution is competent, substantial evidence. The Fourth DCA refuses to recognize a former wife’s tort claim that her former husband’s employer engaged in fraudulent conduct after the final judgment of dissolution that falsely depressed the former husband’s income to limit his child support obligation. Father’s complaint against health care providers alleging battery and intentional interference with parent-child relationship was properly dismissed; health care providers may render medical care on one parent’s consent. District courts of appeal conflict concerning whether the results of a DNA test fulfill the requirement of “newly discovered evidence” for purposes of disestablishing paternity. A Florida court was required to enforce a Colorado order regarding grandparents’ visitation even though entry of a similar order by a Florida court would be prohibited by the Florida Constitution. The Florida Supreme Court declines to adopt the “Daubert amendment” to section 90.702, Florida Statutes, due to constitutional concerns that must be addressed in the context of a proper case or controversy. Wife’s pro se reply to husband’s petition for dissolution of marriage constituted both an answer and a counter-petition. Preparing and attaching child support guidelines to a child support agreement is no longer optional; the parties cannot waive the requirement. Trial court rendered a child support modification order when it filed the order with the clerk of court, not when it signed the order one week earlier, so as to trigger the 10-day period for the Department of Revenue (DOR) to file a motion to vacate the Hearing Officer’s recommended order. The trial court erred in awarding wife no portion of husband’s pension based on its de minimis value; over course of ten years, payout of marital portion of pension would have been roughly $21,600. A law firm was entitled to a charging lien against marital assets awarded to husband where the firm and husband had a written agreement providing for the lien, even though husband would have been entitled to a share of marital assets without the law firm’s representation. Attorneys’ fees may not be awarded against the new spouse of a former spouse. District courts of appeal conflict over whether the trial court has authority to award attorney’s fees pursuant to section 57.105, Florida Statutes, in a domestic violence proceeding. Receding from its prior opinion, the Fourth DCA granted the father attorney’s fees in a paternity action pursuant to section 742.045, Florida Statutes conditioned on a showing of need and ability to pay on remand to the trial court. Former wife could not be ordered to pay former husband’s fees and costs simply because she refused to settle the case. Bank records mandatorily disclosed under Family Law Rules of Procedure must still be admitted into evidence. Disclosed items are not per se admissible.

A must read for anyone considering a career in arts management A how-to manual on creative and effective leadership in the arts Moral support for people already engaged in this activity An inside view of the artistic environment A wealth of advice and hard-earned wisdom Laced with real-life anecdotes This book tells it like it is. This book is written for those who have headed an arts program, those who are presently doing so, those who think they’d like to do it, those who want to know more about the people who do this sort of thing, and for those who just need a good laugh. A complex organizational structure is like a bowl of Jell-O; you can’t touch any part of it without setting the whole substance into reactive motion. People who need to do one thing at a time, and finish it perfectly before going on to the next task—well, this is just not the place for them. Our greatest challenge as arts executives is to dig out of the day-to-day details of the implementation process, to find sufficient time to exercise our leadership abilities—to step back and reflect, to actually see where the institution is headed and to make sure this is really where we want to be going. You can learn whatever you have to learn as you need to learn it. Jump off a cliff, and you will soon find your feet. You can give your organization no greater gift than to instill in it a readiness for change. The bigger the risk, the more likely you are to succeed, because huge risks have such enormous consequences, you can't afford to fail. The only way to ensure staying within your budget is to have more money than you actually need—good luck on that one.
