All his salient traits of his personality are traceable to his strong low cast roots.which despises compromise and forbids diplomacy, contempt for privilege, love of argument, distrust of the religion and faith in humanist logic. These were some of the characteristics of the rugged folks of the Salli district from whom Raki sprang. A number of them, too, are readily prone to mental disorder of one kind or another.

30 Years Man and Boy: Reflections on my Police Career

by Mark Chatterton

A frank and honest recollection of a police career spent almost entirely within Hampshire Constabulary. The author held numerous roles within the organisation and worked his way up the ranks before being promoted to Superintendent in 2002. He reflects upon the challenges of leadership and the remarkable opportunities that came his way over the years. He also tells of his battle back to health after a bout of depression struck him down and he provides advice to others on returning to a command role after such a setback. The author retired in 2016 having completed 30 years police service having attained the rank of Chief Superintendent, a rank he held for 9 years. This book captures his story…..


by Adolphus Ward

At the close of a letter addressed by Dickens to his friend John Forster, but not to be found in the English editions of the Life, the writer adds to his praises of the biography of Goldsmith these memorable words: I desire no better for my fame, when my personal dustiness shall be past the control of my love of order, than such a biographer and such a critic. Dickens was a man of few close friendships his breast he said, would not hold many people but, of these friendships, that with Forster was one of the earliest, as it was one of the most enduring. To Dickens, at least, his future biographer must have been the embodiment of two qualities rarely combined in equal measure discretion and candour. In literary matters his advice was taken almost as often as it was given, and nearly every proof-sheet of nearly every work of Dickens passed through his faithful helpmates hands. Nor were there many important decisions formed by Dickens concerning himself in the course of his manhood to which Forster was a stranger, though, unhappily, he more than once counselled in vain. On Mr. Forster s Life of Charles Dickens together with the three volumes of Letters collected by Dickens seldest daughter and his sister-in-law his dearest and best friend it is superfluous to state that the biographical portion of the following essay is mainly based. It may be superfluous, but it cannot be considered impertinent, if I add that the shortcomings of the Life have, in my opinion, been more frequently proclaimed than defined; and that its merits are those of its author as well as of its subject.

Facilitating Collaboration: Notes on Facilitation For Experienced Collaborators

by Brandon Klein

Combining nearly two decades of facilitating organizational transformations, workshops and meeting strategies for Fortune 100 companies, international governments and non-profit institutions, Brandon and Dan share the steps and critical approach to help you evolve from traditional facilitation to advanced collaboration. Learn directly from successful conversions at Google, (the start of Google Apps) the Arab League (22 country collaboration) as well as a regional non-profit (diversity & inclusion) and local school (classroom re-designs).

This book is not a toolkit or step by step guide, but rather you should already be an experienced collaborator and facilitator. You will learn directly The Facilitator’s 6 Jobs:
Understanding what the client wants. Scoping an event involves clarifying what outcomes the client is seeking, how these outcomes will be put to use to achieve broader objectives, what decisions have already been taken, and what topics will not be addressed. (see Chapter 3)

Working with Sponsors
Building a trusting relationship with the sponsors about content. Event sponsors will only trust an outside facilitator to shape critical work with a large team if he or she invests the time and care to understand the business issue at hand and the personal and political challenges faced by sponsors. (see Chapter 4)

Assembling the elements – some tangible, most not – that need to be in place in order to deliver an event. Logistics and knowledge inputs account for the bulk of the tangible preparation. The intangibles consist of deep learning about the client’s issues and the elements from which possible solutions will be constructed. (see Chapter 5) Of course, preparation includes agenda design, which is addressed separately in the subsequent chapter.

The process of building an agenda. I intentionally choose event modules and order them to achieve specific intermediate outcomes and to create a narrative of the event. The focus is on the process of involving clients in the design process rather than on the design per se. (see Chapter 6)

Guiding a group of participants through designed work towards a desired outcome. This is what people tend to think of when I say facilitation: standing in front of a room full of people, moderating discussion, directing work, telling stories, listening, and generally waving my arms about in the hope of orchestrating the work of a group assembled for a common purpose. (see Chapter 7)

Value Capture
Helping sponsors employ event outcomes to achieve desired objectives. The critical period immediately following a facilitated event is as crucial as the event itself to helping the client achieve valuable results. (see Chapter 8)

BRITISH CRIME: True Crime Stories

by Roger Harrington

Britain is known the world over for its beautiful scenery, rich culture, and often-romanticised history. As a British resident for the best part of my life, it feels a safe, welcoming place to live, with a soft pull that captures the imagination of people from across the world. But just beneath the surface, something is truly rotten in the state of the United Kingdom, and like most countries, it is no stranger to the evils and horrors of criminal deeds.

Since its formation by the Act of Union in 1707, the United Kingdom of Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland has endured more than its fair share of troubles. From sick child murders and abuse through to terrorist acts, political assassination and some down-right brazen armed robberies, the country has borne witness to some truly horrific crimes.

This new volume features stories of dumb criminals from China and the Far East, Stories from Around the Indian Ocean basin, Russia and Eastern Europe, the United Kingdom and France, as well as stories from Canada and Mexico.

Then there is the story about a South Korean airline passenger who was not allowed to bring a certain liquid on the plane. She drank the liquid in front of airline officials but refused to swallow. When officials made her spit the liquid into a bucket they found she was attempting to sneak dozens of tadpoles on board.

In India we learn about the use of “weapons-grade” spice wherein a group of criminals hijacked a train and freed a fellow gang member by throwing locally made chili powder in the face of police chasing them. They got away with it, too.

From Australia there was a 20-year-old thief who stole a tanker truck containing 5,811 gallons of milk and led police on a two hour chase.

From Poland we learn of a man who sued his ex-wife for a refund on the $8,000 he had spent on her breast implants.

From Germany we find that a well-endowed woman allegedly tried to kill her boyfriend by smothering him with her size 38 DD breasts.

Then there is the one about the English man arrested for having sex with his girlfriend’s dog.

The stories just go on and on; this book covers just about every silly, unlawful citizens from around the in the globe. The stories are all true stories. Full of his witty “Birdsong” commentary the book is sure to deliver some great laughs. Professor Birdsong presents a wide variety of just plain, dumb criminals that make this anthology worth reading and, will, as previously stated, at times, make you laugh out loud.

The Smell of Pine: someone spent a lot of time with pine cones and sap as a child (Works by Carolyn Bentley Book 3)

by Carolyn Bentley

Short Excerpt: “The little girl came running out and climbed straight up the trunk of the tree. This time with tears streaming down her face. The girl was almost in hysterics. Yelling could be heard from within. The little girl seemed extremely agitated.
The tree was for her a place of escape. It was a place to get away from the world and its troubles. To such a small person with a huge imagination the tree seemed immense and could easily conceal the outside world and its problems. Her biggest worry was the ugly brown bugs crawling around under the bark.”

In the ugly web of illness and pain, every breath I take is a fight to carry on and every doctor visit is another reason to give up.

One Night Onlyâ?¦

A single message is the only thing that matters. A single message that can alter his life forever and erase my pain.

One Night Only… we trade the pain to create a memory of a lifetime.

One Night Only is a stand-alone novella based on a true story.

From a Country Boy’s (City) View (From a Country Boy’s View Book 2)

by Michael (Mike) Foley

For anyone who happened to be lucky enough to have read
my first book, “From a Country Boy’s View”, this second
book, a sequel, should make perfect sense. The first book
was simply about a child telling stories about life on a rural
farm and what life in that country setting was like for most
children in the 1950’s and early 60’s. There wasn’t very
much to do in those days as our 16 inch black and white T.V.
only had about three channels and transistor radios and
record players were the only other source of indoor
entertainment available. Wow, the real world was heading
my way fast!

As the years went by and the times and technology were
advancing, the country boy changed too; a transition much
like a butterfly transforms from a worm to a beautiful
creature. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I became
a beautiful creature, I’m just saying I changed and that’s
about the best analogy I can think of. Leaving my cocoon of
infancy and innocense sure wasn’t easy but as time went by
and I started doing teenage things and learning the ways of
the world, it sure became a lot of fun. School was still an
unnecessary and dreaded portion of my every day and most
of the time I didn’t learn anything of any significance. One
of the most consistent things during adolescents was how
almost all of my teachers continued to dislike me and make
every day nearly unbearable. As the years went by I finally
started to realize that every coin has two sides and noticed
how and why I wasn’t exactly their dream come true either.
I was the kind of kid who made a good many teachers search
for a different line of work as most of them hadn’t learned
anything about my kind as they prepared for their teaching
career in college. While I was making their life very
pleasant, I was beginning to realized why they were so mean
to me. I have since forgiven almost all of them for their
behavior as it took a few years for me to figure it out. As I
matured in my mid­teens, I began to see school a little
differently and for that, I thank you Mr. Nash…………..

In retrospect, I realize I was a cool guy to most of my
friends but in reality, and I mean genuine reality, a pain
where the pill can’t reach to a lot of others. With a burning
desire I sincerely hope that anyone who reads this book can
see and realize why a nice little farm boy developed a
country boy’s city view.

Il mio amore col fiore in bocca (Italian Edition)

by Roberto De Giorgi

Il vero fiore è il mio amore. Quest’altro è un intruso. Questo è il diario, scritto così, in piedi, in auto, durante il viaggio, nelle sale d’attesa dell’Istituto tumori Regina Elena di Roma, osservando quest’umanità colta nella sua quotidianità inquieta e nella voglia di correre altrove.

La scelta di pubblicare questo diario è nata da lei e da me nello stesso momento, pensando di regalare all’ANT tutti i proventi della sua vendita. Perché l’approccio al malato oncologico sia diverso, perché esorcizzare non serve a nulla.

E’ un diario di bordo di un compagno di vita che ha osservato quel frammento di vita che gli è passato davanti, talvolta indiscreto, ma con tanto rispetto verso quest’umanità che è colpita dal male del terzo millennio. Un libro dedicato a tutti gli operatori, agli angeli che sono impegnati nel settore, che sono il terreno fertile dove nascono fiori autentici e non falsi, come quello che era nato in bocca all’amore mio.
