Every day we are inundated with messages about the importance of finding balance in our lives. How does this make us feel? Overwhelmed, out of touch, and unfulfilled. The problem isn´t us - it´s the message. Perfect balance is unachievable and, upon closer inspection, undesirable. The perpetual quest for balance ends up limiting growth, progress, and the quality of life. In Off Balance on Purpose, Dan Thurmon frees you from the balance dilemma and empowers you to adopt a new approach to creating a happy, fulfilling life: embrace reality, get aligned with your purpose, lean forward, and initiate positive changes. These steps will give you the knowledge, strength, and motivation to: Accept and take advantage of the contradictions in your daily life Integrate the five vital areas of life - work, relationships, health, spiritual growth, and personal interests - into a workable, fluid, sustaining pattern Adopt a practical, concrete process for orchestrating changes and staying aligned with your purpose With an engaging style and a storyteller´s gift, Thurmon combines profound insight, humor, compassion, and practical examples to offer you a realistic path toward a rich and rewarding life. 1.

The ultimate guide to master the art of making business. Throughout history, humans have shown their creative side, starting with the cave paintings and reaching as far as modern-day inventions. From a simplistic point of view, we can easily define creativity as the ability to transform a novel idea into a useful product or service. The result of creativity is thus original and worth using. Creative people can be found all over the world, regardless of their culture, occupational background, or religious beliefs. No matter their origins, they are often defined by nonconformism, openness to ideas, and flexibility. Many studies have been dedicated to discovering the features that make people become creative. Various scientists have come up with the conclusion that creativity is based on the ability to generate original ideas. At the same time, one must be inherently curious and tolerate the uncertainty that surrounds certain ideas. Extrinsic and intrinsic motivation, as well as a high-level of confidence, are elements creative people proudly possess. When people think about creative people, the kind of persons who usually come to mind are artists, musicians, performers, stage and screen actors, writers, and other people who have a huge sense of whimsy. What would you think if I told you that there are also a lot of people in the corporate world? Would you believe me? It is a common misconception that the world of business is cold and calculated; there is no space in the boardroom for any kind of creative thinking, and this is false. In fact, companies would not even thrive, let alone grow, if not for the creative thinking of those who run them. If the CEOs of major corporations don´t have a creative bone in their bodies, then we would not be enjoying all of the perks of modern living. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jared Leslie.

Andy Dalziel of the Mid-Yorks CID has witnessed a murder, but it was though dark glass and he was being sick at the time. Now he finds the case shrouded in uncertainty and a string of contradictory statements. And who is his anonymous letter writer threatening suicide? Meanwhile Dalziel´s colleague, Peter Pascoe, has returned from a long convalescence uncertain about his job, his marriage, or his motivations whilst having to act as a moderator to the strong-willed Dalziel. In the background and, occasionally, the foreground, are the York Mystery Plays with their Director, Eileen Chung, who uses and abuses her vast range of talents to get the cast, site, and show she wants. But mysteries linger long after the performances, mysteries with no solution. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Glover.

The Tony Award--winning play that soars at the intersection of science and art, Copenhagen´´ ´´is an explosive re-imagining of the mysterious wartime meeting between two Nobel laureates to discuss the atomic bomb. In 1941 the German physicist Werner Heisenberg made a clandestine trip to Copenhagen to see his Danish counterpart and friend Niels Bohr. Their work together on quantum mechanics and the uncertainty principle had revolutionized atomic physics. But now the world had changed and the two men were on opposite sides in a world war. Why Heisenberg went to Copenhagen and what he wanted to say to Bohr are questions that have vexed historians ever since. In Michael Frayn´s ambitious, fiercely intelligent, and daring new play Heisenberg and Bohr meet once again to discuss the intricacies of physics and to ponder the metaphysical--the very essence of human motivation.

A contemporary air-sea heavyweight fight...the like we haven´t seen since the Pacific War. A routine US Navy freedom-of-navigation patrol in the South China sea turns deadly when it encounters a covert - and unauthorized - Chinese plot to lay claim to waters of the South China Sea. Misunderstanding, miscalculation, and fear lead to both sides mobilizing, with the United States moving west across the Pacific to meet and engage the People´s Liberation Army (Navy) who waits with modern weaponry and determined purpose. Through detailed research and his insight of modern naval and aerial warfare gained through personal experience, Kevin Miller takes the listener aboard a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier heading across the Pacific for the South China Sea - and combat. Today, the South China Sea is one of the most important - and dangerous - bodies of water in the world, with seven countries laying claim to portions of it, and in one case, all of it. Loaded with action, from heavy seas to inbound missiles, Fight Fight explores a scenario that could lead to an unwanted and unplanned - and with today´s headlines perhaps inevitable - war between an established and a rising superpower.Known for his character development, Miller brings Flip, Weed, and Olive along on another sea adventure. Along the way they will encounter a leadership challenge as old as the sea, and the motivations of several Chinese antagonists, from four-star leadership to front line fighter pilots, are explored. Today´s cutting-edge precision weapons - some real and some imagined - are employed to devastating effect. Could the Chinese - though relentless action or divine luck - do the unthinkable? Fight Fight is modern techno-thriller on the order of Clancy´s Red Storm Rising, a human story of geopolitics and personal failings, involving the perils and uncertainty of modern naval combat and one particular deadly sin that humans fighting such bat 1.
