When a buttoned-up professor and her unbuttoned daughter fall for the same irresistible man, a delightful, subversive comedy begins. . . . Life isn’t easy for single mother Ally Hughes. Teaching at Brown, her class load is huge and her boss is a menace. At home, she contends with a critical mother, a falling-down house, and a daughter who never misses a beat. Between taking care of the people she loves, teaching full time, and making ends meet, Ally doesn't have time for a man. She doesn’t date. She’s not into flings. But then she meets Jake, an eager student, young in years but old in soul, who challenges his favorite professor to open up her life, and her heart, to love. It doesn't work. In fact, his urging backfires. Ten years later, Ally's still single. Jake reappears and surprises her in a brand-new role: He's dating Ally's now-grown daughter. In this hilarious, heartrending tale, Ally is finally forced to concede (not only to herself) that an independent, "liberated" woman can still make room in her life for love.

Today a multinational video game developer, Sega was the first to break Nintendo’s grip on the gaming industry, expanding from primarily an arcade game company to become the dominant game console manufacturer in North America. A major part of that success came from the hard work and innovation of its subsidiary, Sega of America, who in a little more than a decade wrested the majority market share from Nintendo and revolutionized how games were made. Drawing on interviews with nearly 100 Sega alumni, this book traces the development of the company, revealing previously undocumented areas of game-making history, including Sega’s relationship with Tonka, the creation of its internal studios, and major breakthroughs like the Sega Channel and HEAT Network. More than 40 of the company’s most influential games are explored in detail.
If Sega were to compete with the NES juggernaut, it would need to ally itself with
a company that understood the American distribution and retail system and that
had pockets deep enough to push the console. As Nintendo had successfully ...

Summary of Book 1. this book hopes to serve as some free consultation or advice on relationships from the very heart of God and my own personal experiences. 2. Relationships are out or order and steps need to be taken to get them back in order. Professional or Personal relationships, your own spiritual relationship with God, the Whole Body of Christ relationship with God, and Christians relationships with each other. 3. God can never have a fulfilled relationship with you, until you get your priorities straight. 4. The Depth o the Love of God. God loved the world first, man second, and the church third. God loved human creation so much that he gave him dominion over all the earth. How have we returned this great favor? We have polluted the water, land, animals, plants, and vegetation. We have not taken care of each other or spiritual matters that concern God. Lastly, this book about the Sacrifice of God. He gave his only begotten son. He gave his only begotten son. Jesus Christ represents LOVE and the Bible represents COUNSEL.
Your enemies make you stronger and help you to grow and get to your next level;
that's why they all exist and why God allows them to be put in your life. Step 9. An

If you have significant contact with a person involved in a twelve-step program, Understanding Twelve-Step Programs is intended for you. That person may be a friend, family member, parishioner, patient or employee. This book may also be useful if you have been told that you could benefit from a twelve-step program, but have yet to get involved in a group, or if you are still new to twelve-step programs. This book is not clinical; rather, I present the material as an experienced insider. Its topics include what goes on in meetings, addiction and withdrawal, how each step works, sponsorship, spirituality, anonymity, helping addicts, and recovery for friends and family. My purpose is to de-mystify twelve-step programs and to help you better understand the nature of recovery. Brown provides us with an insightful look into the world of recovery. As a substance abuse therapist I will find this a valuable tool in helping others understand 12 step work. I liked the book very much and believe it will be a useful tool to ministers, lay people, and those considering 12 step meetings. -Lisa B. Creef, L.C.S.W., L.C.A.S. Brown has accurately assessed the value of healing communities and their immeasurable impact for personal recovery. His practical and experiential knowledge of 12 step programs can lend us expert assistance for transformative ministry. -J. Bruce Ritter, Senior Pastor, Christian Life Center Bruce Brown came into his first twelve-step program in early 1993. Since then he has attended at least ten different types of twelve-step programs. His recovery has involved meetings in fifteen states covering all regions of the U.S. as well as online meetings. He has sponsored over twenty people and worked intensely with ten sponsors of his own. Bruce has spoken at many gatherings, and served his twelve-step fellowships at local, regional and national levels. As a result, his experience is broad enough to make generalizations about twelve-step programs that go beyond one type of fellowship or one region. Because of Bruce's focus on written step work, he has been labeled a "Step Nazi." He has worked the Twelve Steps numerous times.

China and South Korea have come a long way since they were adversaries. The arc of their relationship since the late 1970s is an excellent model of East-West cooperation and, at the same time, highlights the growing impact of China's "rise" over its regional neighbors, including America's close allies. South Korea-China relations have rarely been studied as an independent theme. The accumulation of more than fifteen years of research, Between Ally and Partner reconstructs a comprehensive portrait of Sino-Korean rapprochement and examines the strategic dilemma that the rise of China has posed for South Korea and its alliance with the United States. Jae Ho Chung makes use of declassified government archives, internal reports, and opinion surveys and conducts personal interviews with Korean, Chinese, and American officials. He tackles three questions: Why did South Korea and China reconcile before the end of the cold war? How did rapprochement lay the groundwork for diplomatic normalization? And what will the intersection of security concerns and economic necessity with China mean for South Korea's relationship with its close ally, the United States? The implications of Sino-Korean relations go far beyond the Korean Peninsula. South Korea was caught largely unprepared, both strategically and psychologically, by China's rise, and the dilemma that South Korea now faces has crucial ramifications for many countries in Asia, where attempts to counterbalance China have been rare. Thoroughly investigated and clearly presented, this book answers critical questions concerning what kept these two countries talking and how enmity was transformed into a zeal for partnership.

There has been much written about teams with an ongoing debate about the primacy of environment or dynamics as the most important element to effective teams. Yet the need for groups to be able to consistently tap into the collective intelligence present in the team is more and more important. This requires teams to move beyond cooperation, goodwill and consensus and be able to challenge individual and collective assumptions to see new alternatives.This book provides a simple but elegant model to understand how teams move past the mediocrity of consensus to innovative thinking that comes with Collective Learning. Collective Learning occurs when teams become aware of their assumptions and it challenges them to create a new understanding of what is real and what is important. When that happens, lasting change can come from within the team. There are four distinct abilities that must be present to provide the infrastructure for a group to learn collectively, and here is the how to to dramatically increase team effectiveness. This book is focused on how a facilitator can help groups and the individuals in those groups slow down the emotional and belief processes in order to create opportunities to choose responses rather than being on automatic pilot. The purpose of the facilitators effort is to move experiential learning beyond the traditional notion of teambuilding. Teambuilding has become a catchall phrase for helping a group get more comfortable with one another and develop trust. It is our opinion that to unlock the power of these experiential tools, facilitators must think about developing two Meta-skills Emotional Maturity and Critical Thinking. Using experiential learning to develop the attitudes and skills to continually learn provides a real hope for creating fundamental change in the way people and groups interact.

This work examines the critical postwar period of 1945-1952, during which years two formidable and recent Pacific enemiesóthe victorious U.S. and the vanquished Japanóworked out the parameters of their postwar relationship. The author here focuses on one of the most articulate and insightful (yet overlooked) segments of American media: the business press. This well researched and readable volume discusses the important international relationship as it evolved during a crucial period in recent world history.

Gray focuses on the social, administrative, political, and spiritual dimensions of the lives of three Congrégation superiors - Marie Barbier, Marie-Josèphe Maugue-Garreau, and Marie Raizenne. By exploring the implications of the hierarchies of power within the convent and providing a thorough analysis of the convent's relationship with the social, religious, and governmental structures that surrounded it - taking into account both medieval and Catholic Reformation Europe and seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Canada - Gray reveals the paradoxes inherent in the position of a female superior within the male-dominated sphere of both the church and the larger secular community.
