Sexy Healthy Grandmother, Healthy You Healthy Me by London Renee


"Start now, while you are young" You are going to age, so why not age gracefully? Another quote Venus likes to share is,“Our health always seems much more valuable after we lose it”—unknown source. Don’t let this happen to you. Protect your health and care about your body, that great gift from the Creator. We are getting older and living longer, so why not be healthy, sexy and beautiful doing it.



Venus is a mother of three and grandmother of 14. She has studied natural health for the last 25 years and enjoys eating for good health. Eating for a healthy brain, heart, lungs, kidneys and liver, the body, mind and the soul, is thinking about the whole of the body. For 13 years Venus has been licensed as a skin specialist and for over 20 years as a natural health life coach. Her three passions in life are Spirituality, Family and Natural Health.

She believes that whenever you are sick or feeling weak, your immune system is weakening. She says our bodies are starving from lack of nutrients and physical challenges, and the foods we eat are mostly devoid of nutritional value. Our bodies need help. We need more of the green foods, foods with life in them, supplements to help keep the immune system healthy and strong. We need to exercise so that we stay in shape for this long life we are living. As we age our systems go through changes. The process starts the moment we are born and worsens as we get older.

Negociar, ruta hacia el éxito: Estrategias y habilidades esenciales by George J. Siedel


Esta guía práctica de la negociación personal y comercial va más allá de la fase de negociación propiamente dicha, cubriendo íntegramente el proceso desde la toma de decisión a favor de la negociación, a través de la evaluación del desempeño de la misma.



Todos negociamos de manera diaria. Negociamos con nuestras esposas, hijos, padres y amigos. Negociamos cuando alquilamos un departamento, compramos un coche o aplicamos a un puesto de trabajo. Tu habilidad para negociar debería ser el factor más importante en tu carrera.



La negociación además es clave para el éxito de los negocios. Ninguna organización puede sobrevivir sin contratos que generen ganancias. A un nivel estratégico, los negocios están estrechamente vinculados con la creación de valor y la consiguiente consecución de ventajas competitivas. Pero el éxito de las estrategias comerciales de alto vuelo dependerá de los contratos celebrados con proveedores, clientes y socios comerciales. La capacidad de contratación, esto es la habilidad de negociar y lograr contratos exitosos, es la función más importante de toda organización.



Este libro ha sido concebido para ayudarte a alcanzar resultados exitosos en tus negociaciones personales y en tus transacciones comerciales. Es único desde dos perspectivas: por un lado, no sólo cubre conceptos de negociación, sino que también proporciona acciones prácticas a seguir en futuras negociaciones, incluyendo una lista de chequeo para la planificación de la negociación y un ejemplo práctico de esa lista de chequeo completa.



También incorpora: (1) una herramienta de evaluación de tu estilo personal; (2) ejemplos de “árboles de decisión”, útiles para calcular tus alternativas en caso de frustración de la negociación; (3) una estrategia de tres etapas para incrementar tu poder durante la negociación: (4) un plan práctico para analizar tus negociaciones en consideración a distintas variables, entre ellas tu precio de reserva y zona de probable acuerdo, entre otros; (5) lineamientos claros en estándares éticos aplicables a la negociación; (6) factores a considerar al decidir si deberías negociar a través de un agente; (7) herramientas psicológicas que puedes utilizar, y modos para eludirlas si las plantea la otra parte; (8) elementos esenciales del Derecho Contractual; y (9) una lista de chequeo de factores a utilizar cuando evaluas tu desempeño como negociador.



En segundo término, el libro es único en cuando propone un enfoque global y general para todo el proceso de la negociación. Otras obras se focalizan sea en la negociación, o bien en el Derecho Contractual, concentrándose en este último caso, en cuestiones y requisitos específicos desde el punto de vista legal para que un contrato sea válido, sin considerar otros aspectos.



En el mundo en que vivimos, el proceso de contratación no puede ser desmenuzado en fases o compartimentos estancos. Lo que ocurre durante una negociación tiene un impacto profundo en el contrato y en el desempeño consiguiente. El contenido legal del contrato debería reflejar lo que sucedió en el marco de la negociación. Este libro, a diferencia de otros, cubre íntegramente el proceso de negociación en orden cronológico, comenzando con tu decisión de negociar, continuando con la evaluación de tu propio desempeño como negociador.



Una ejecutiva de negocios que concurrió a un seminario de negociación dictado por el autor de este libro ha dicho: “La vida es negociación!” Y es cierto, ya que como madre de hijos pequeños y, a la vez, líder de una empresa, la ejecutiva advirtió que las negociaciones se infiltran en nuestras vidas privadas y profesionales. Con este énfasis, y asimismo con el mencionado orden cronológico y su enfoque general, el libro proporciona una hoja de ruta que podrás utilizar al “navegar tu vida como negociador”.

Dragon Horse War by D. Jackson Leigh


A priestess of peace and a fiery warrior must defeat a vicious uprising that entwines their destinies and ultimately their hearts.



When is war justified to preserve peace?



Society has evolved into one collective belief that celebrates diversity. Luxury credits are earned and spent only after the world population is fed and educated. But when catastrophic weather kills thousands and destroys crops, people begin to look for answers among ancient legends of guilt, retribution, and a vengeful deity.



Jael, seasoned commander of a latent cell of dragon horse warriors, understands what Alyssa, an alluring young priestess, doesn’t—words won’t be enough to quell the violent sect preying on the population’s fear and hunger. As their conflicting ideologies threaten to jeopardize their mission, Alyssa and Jael realize their growing attraction and entwined destiny might be more formidable than the enemy they have been called upon to defeat.

Herbal Rituals by Judith Berger

>> Wednesday, March 4, 2015


Herbal Rituals weaves elements from disparate myths, religious rituals, Native American traditions, and memories from the author's childhood to create a living, breathing tapestry, situating the reader vividly into each month of nature's yearly cycle. It includes recipes for meals, medicinal infusions, herbal honey, brandies, lotions, soothing baths, and rituals in the spirit of each season.



Herbal Rituals is about connecting with Nature and the plant world in order to keep us near to the ground of our own souls. The book records, month by month, a yearlong journey in to the earth's natural cycle. Month by month readers are given a poetic description of a facet of the earth's temperament, offering us an opportunity to immerse ourselves in Nature's unique expression of birth, growth, fruition, decay, death and regeneration, the primary cycle that weaves a thread of continuance through our lives. Each monthly chapter discusses one or two herbs in detail - what it's like, how it grows, what it does - as well as presenting recipes for teas, lotions and foods, along with rituals appropriate to the season that can bring your life into harmony with the moods of nature. Even in an urban environment, the constant presence of the elemental natural world and the use of herbs can be a touchstone to bring both body and soul back to a natural cadence. For thousands of years, humans have used herbs and trees for just this kind of medicine, in addition to calling on the plants as a source of nutrition, remedy, heating, shelter and magic. These are the old ways.









About Judith Berger

She integrates decades of experience as an herbalist with her medical background as a physician assistant to serve clients and patients interested in integrative care.

The Way Into Darkness by Harry Connolly


Book 3 of The Great Way, the trilogy concludes as Tejohn and Cazia struggle to find a weapon to use against The Blessing, and to find the power that unleashed them onto Kal-Maddum.



"Epic Fantasy that reads like a Thriller." -- Kat Richardson, author of The Greywalker series



BOOK THREE OF THE GREAT WAY: What was once the Peradaini Empire is now a wasted landscape of burned, empty cities and abandoned farmlands. The Blessing, now more numerous than ever, continues to spread across the continent, driving refugees to the dubious safety of the city walls. Unharvested crops mean that few strongholds have enough provisions to last the winter, although most know the grunts will take them before starvation will.



But hope survives. A piece of stolen magic just might halt the spread of The Blessing if Tejohn and Cazia can find a scholar with the skill to recreate the spell. If such a person still lives.



Unfortunately, they are nearly out of time. The few remaining human enclaves are isolated and under siege. Worse, The Blessing has spread to other sentient creatures. If Cazia and Tejohn are going to strike back at their monstrous enemy, they can not delay.



And there’s another, deeper question left unaddressed: where did The Blessing come from, and why have they invaded Kal-Maddum?



The Way Into Darkness is the final book in The Great Way, wrapping up the story begun in The Way Into Chaos and continued in The Way Into Magic.
