the casual vacancy

The Casual Vacancy by J K Rowling.  When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.

The Art of Intelligence: Lessons from a Life in the CIA's Clandestine Service


The Art of Intelligence: Lessons from a Life in the CIA's Clandestine Service

A legendary CIA spy and counterterrorism expert tells the spellbinding story of his high-risk, action-packed career while illustrating the growing importance of America's intelligence officers and their secret missions
For a crucial period, Henry Crumpton led the CIA's global covert operations against America's terrorist enemies, including al Qaeda. In the days after 9/11, the CIA tasked Crumpton to organize and lead the Afghanistan campaign. With Crumpton's strategic initiative and bold leadership, from the battlefield to the Oval Office, U.S. and Afghan allies routed al Qaeda and the Taliban in less than ninety days after the Twin Towers fell. At the height of combat against the Taliban in late 2001, there were fewer than five hundred Americans on the ground in Afghanistan, a dynamic blend of CIA and Special Forces. The campaign changed the way America wages war. This book will change the way America views the CIA.
The Art of Intelligence draws from the full arc of Crumpton's espionage and covert action exploits to explain what America's spies do and why their service is more valuable than ever. From his early years in Africa, where he recruited and ran sources, from loathsome criminals to heroic warriors; to his liaison assignment at the FBI, the CIA's Counterterrorism Center, the development of the UAV Predator program, and the Afghanistan war; to his later work running all CIA clandestine operations inside the United States, he employs enthralling storytelling to teach important lessons about national security, but also about duty, honor, and love of country.
No book like The Art of Intelligence has ever been written-not with Crumpton's unique perspective, in a time when America faced such grave and uncertain risk. It is an epic, sure to be a classic in the annals of espionage and war.

he Meaning of Marriage

There has never been a marriage book like THE MEANING OF MARRIAGE.
Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, this book shows everyone-Christians, skeptics, singles, long-time married couples, and those about to be engaged-the vision of what marriage should be according to the Bible.
Modern culture would make you believe that everyone has a soul-mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but merely for now; that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. All those modern-day assumptions are, in a word, wrong.
Using the Bible as his guide, coupled with insightful commentary from his wife of thirty-six years, Kathy, Timothy Keller shows that God created marriage to bring us closer to him and to bring us more joy in our lives. It is a glorious relationship that is also the most misunderstood and mysterious. With a clear-eyed understanding of the Bible, and meaningful instruction on how to have a successful marriage, The Meaning of Marriage is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life.

Confessions of a royal marine commando

Confessions of a royal marine commando
One of the most inspiring and entertaining stories you will read this year, Confessions of a Royal Marine Commando: A Young Man’s Mischievous Journey Into The UK’s Finest, has just been published.

Author David Stanley has pulled off the unique feat of being both funny and inspirational while telling a tale which should give heart to every young kid in the country whose being bullied in the schoolyard or at home. The well known advertisements for Commandos state that 99.99 percent need not apply, David Stanley always knew that the famous Green Beret, the proud symbol of the Commandos, would be his. British Commandos are admired by military establishments around the world as being the elite of the elite, the most highly trained soldiers in history.

The story of how a height challenged kid who was scared to walk to the local bus stop survived the brutal training regime imposed on aspiring Commandos and became one of the seven chosen out of an initial 50,000 applicants will warm the heart of anyone who has a dream they have been frightened to chase.

With bullying remaining a major problem in the British school system, impacting on many thousands of children every year. Every one of those kids should do themselves a favor and read this book.

Anyone who reads this book will find themselves belly laughing at Stanley’s vividly comical descriptions of the notoriously tough training procedures at the Limpstone Commando Training Centre.

“I wanted to do something different from normal,” says author David Stanley of why he felt compelled to write Confessions of a Royal Marine Commando. “I wanted to look at the comical side of things. Most military books are very serious but in fact much about military life can be very funny and most soldiers I have known have a great sense of humor.

“Of course British soldiers are fighting and dying in the unpopular Afghanistan war and public controversy over Britain’s involvement is a major political headache for the current government. Without taking sides in that debate, I wanted to raise money to help the seriously injured soldiers returning from one of the most dangerous battle zones imaginable.

“Sometimes when I’m walking around I see kids who are very much like I was, easily bullied and frightened to even walk down the street because they’re being bashed up by others bigger and older than themselves. The book as much for those kids as it is for anybody else. I wanted to give them heart, to show them how to turn their lives around and to stand up and fight for what is right.”

To lose weight and diet effectively you must learn and adopt new eating habits and behaviors self discipline will enable you to manage your new healthy weight once you've completed your weight reduction.

Self-discipline means training yourself to ensure proper behavior and outcome, regardless of the task, stated by “”

If you are trying to eat healthy and making sure you get enough exercise daily, creating a plan to follow may help you maintain order and control.

A plan should include the steps you need to take in order to reach your goals.

Example one, would be to create an idea board or notebook that displays pictures and descriptions of inspirational people or objects that inspire and motivate you to maintain-self-discipline.

Willpower is a form of self-discipline.

If you are determined to do something and you have willpower, you can accomplish your goals, despite the difficulties involved along the way.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that healthy adults get up to 150 minutes of moderate to intense aerobic activity weekly.

You can use this 150 minutes by simply walking each day and tracking the time ensuring you walk for a minimum of 150 minutes as a starting point to reach your dietary and weight-loss exercise goals.

Achieving your basic weight-loss requirements daily or weekly can help carry your willpower as you push through to your goals.

Strong self-discipline is needed in order to reach your goals, so it is important to set both short-term and long-term goals.

Short-term goals should be attainable and be a stepping stone to your ultimate or long-term goal.

Setting clearly defined goals can help boost self-confidence and allow you recognize your own ability and achievements.

A weight-loss goal is more practical when you implement a low-fat diet. Following a healthy diet you’re your success that’s why we have set out a full diet of recipes to follow with in this book.

Achieving self-discipline does not mean you have to do everything on your own.

Having someone to hold you accountable for your eating and exercise habits can help you stay on track.

Find a weight-loss buddy who has similar goals as you motivate each other to follow a healthy diet pattern and complete the 150 minutes of walking each week.

It is also important to write down and track what you eat and how often you work out; this is a form of self-discipline and responsibility.

You need to decide what behavior best reflects your goals and values. This process requires introspection and self-analysis, and is most effective when tied to written expression. I highly recommend taking the time to write out your goals, dreams and ambitions. Even better, write out a personal mission statement.

Self-discipline factors upon conscious awareness as to both what you are doing and what you are not doing.

Think about If you aren’t aware your behavior is undisciplined, how will you know to act otherwise?

As you begin to build self-discipline, you may catch yourself being in the act of being undisciplined ie: biting your nails, missing your 150 minutes of walking, eating a piece of cake or checking your email constantly.

Developing self-discipline takes time, and the key with self-discipline is your awareness of your undisciplined behavior.

With time this awareness will come earlier, meaning rather than catching yourself in the act of being undisciplined you will have awareness before you act in this way.

This gives you the opportunity to make a decision that is in better alignment with your goals and values.

Once you have your written goals it is not enough to simply write them out.

You must make a self conscious commitment to them. Otherwise when your alarm clock goes off at 5am you will see no harm in hitting the snooze button for “just another 5 minutes….” Or, when initial rush of enthusiasm has faded away from a project you will struggle to see it through to completion.

If you struggle with commitment, start by making a conscious decision to follow through on what you say you’re going to do – both when you said you would do it and how you said you would do it.

Then, I highly recommend putting in place a system to track these commitments.

There is a saying, “What gets measured gets improved”.

Don’t pretend something is easy for you to do when it is in fact very difficult or painful.

Instead, find the courage to face this pain and difficulty.

As you begin to accumulate small private victories, your self-confidence will grow and the courage that underpins self-discipline will grow inside you. In time self-discipline will come more naturally.

Self-talk is often harmful, but it can also be extremely beneficial if you have control of it.

When you find yourself being tested, I suggest you talk to yourself, encourage yourself and reassure yourself.

After all, it is self-talk that has the ability to remind you of your goals, call up courage, reinforce your commitment and keep you conscious of the task at hand.

You will find your self-discipline being tested, when it is always recall the following quote:

 “The price of discipline is always less than the pain of regret”.

Burn this quote into your memory write it down and display in the kitchen, and recall in whenever you find yourself being tested. It may help change your life.

Drink water or plain unsweetened and non milk tea daily make this your only beverage until you have achieved your weight loss goals.

No type of soda, regardless of how many or how few calories it has, is ever a good choice.

However, by following healthy habits on a regular basis, you’ll be able to enjoy the odd soda after you have achieved your goals without much impact to your health or weight, and when you do, you might as well enjoy the real thing! Because now you have earned the reward.

The mixture should deflate once you add the egg. If it takes a little time, just mix a little more.

Heat a non-stick pan to medium (coat with Canola Gourmet Mist, at desired) heat. You want the batter to start cooking as it hits the pan, but not totally cook (if heat is TOO high, you cannot control how the thinness of the crepe)

As you pour the mixture into the pre-heated pan, rotate the pan (this is how you get a very thin crepe).

Flip the crepe when the sides are cooked and start to curl.

Both sides should be golden brown.

NOTE: if you have a crepe pan, use it!

Makes 3, 8-inch crepes or 4, 6-inch crepes per serving.

STIR the batter each time before pouring into pan (if you don't, the egg rises and your last crepe will be more like a pancake!)

Great for breakfast with a fruit filling, or for using as a wrap for other meals (think chicken, steak or fish with veggies and a protein supplement soup for sauce; or Sloppy Joe and vegetables tucked inside the crepes).
