Don't give up till you reach the end, or you will miss the message. Introduction My poems are inspired by life's experience, the good times and the not so good times. Recapping significant bits of life and events that have absolutely no significance at all. Sometimes one of my poems will introduce a life changing truth next will lead you down the garden path to some humorous event that's really out for a laugh. I suppose it's not really fair to play with the dynamics of people's emotions but life's not always fair. Anyway if your reading my book and it has touched you enough to move your mind away from reality for a short time it has achieved the desired result. And also paid a small amount to help feed my family. This will also give me the opportunity to write another verse that just may be the poem that touches the hearts of the people that needs a slight encouragement at that particular moment so don't get up off the lounge or out of that comfy chair.

An Open Message to Bridgestone Corporation Absent government or judicial intervention, if Bridgestone/Firestone Corporation does not abandon its use of substandard component parts and does not take immediate remedial measures in its tire manufacturing process, and does not terminate its unlawful business practices or cease its human rights violations at its rubber plantation in Liberia, Africa, the end result will be a multi-national corporation with manufacturing plants all over the world, populated by thousands of employees who make millions of tires, that nobody wants to buy!

Although Critical Race Theory (CRT) has been used to analyze difficult issues of race and racism in education for over ten years, the function of CRT in educational research is still not entirely clear. By bringing together the voices of various CRT scholars and education experts, this volume presents a comprehensive chorus of answers to the question of how and why CRT should be applied to educational scholarship. The collected chapters address CRT’s foundations in legal theory, current applications of CRT, and possible new directions for CRT in education. Appropriate for both students curious about CRT and established CRT scholars, Critical Race Theory in Education is a valuable guide to how CRT can help us better understand and seek solutions to educational inequity.

Make the most of the new standards Every year companies spend millions of dollars on executive incentives. All too often, however, these programs provide a very weak link between pay and performance, with executives potentially rewarded as much for bad decisions as they are for good ones. Packed with examples, The New Standards insightfully discusses: How to link pay with business results that create long-term value Why incentive structures can discourage management from reasonable risk-taking, in some cases, and can enocourage imprudent risks in others The full range of inputs that should guide proper incentive policy Why performance measures must reflect both the quality and quantity of earnings Risk, executive behavior, and the cost of capital How to use valuation criteria when choosing metrics The pros and cons of common approaches to stock-based incentive pay Written by noted compensation expert Richard Ericson, this innovative book is a must-read for directors and management concerned with executive compensation design or financial performance measurement and forecasting. Get the guidance and concrete solutions you need to thoroughly reexamine your executive compensation policies and practices with the principles and financial maxims found in The New Standards.

As President Barack Obama outlined his promise for change during the presidential campaign, he made effective use of proverbs and proverbial phrases, and invented many quotable epithets that have all the makings of future proverbs. This book examines how Obama's natural and authentic reliance on traditional metaphors enhances his impressive rhetoric, rather than reducing it to mere sound bites. Proverbs, with their often colorful metaphors, add expressiveness and emotion to his communications, giving people the opportunity to follow his pragmatic or philosophical arguments through common language. No matter the subject, Obama's prose contains metaphorical language that makes his rhetoric and oratory universally accessible. This book contains detailed analyses of the proverbial rhetoric in Obama's books Dreams from My Father (1995) and The Audacity of Hope (2006). A section looks at his proverbial language in 229 speeches, news conferences, interviews, and radio addresses, and the final section presents in-depth studies of his seven most significant addresses. It includes a comprehensive contextualized index of 1714 proverbial texts found within the writings and speeches from Obama's political beginnings to his memorable inaugural address.
