LIVING IN LOVE by Masood Ssekalema

LIVING IN LOVE: A Marriage and Relationship Guide for Couples


DO YOU WANT TO MAKE YOUR RELATIONSHIP MORE PASSIONATE? MORE INTIMATE? MORE LOVING? DO YOU WANT DEEPER AND MORE CONNECTED SEX?

LIVING IN LOVE is your ultimate relationship guide.

One of the biggest myths about relationships is that intimacy can’t last forever. It can. We simply need to cultivate it, just as we cultivate our skills in parenting and our careers. This book equips couples with skills to do just that.

Our sexual well–being goes hand in hand with our overall mental, physical, and emotional health. This page–turning relationship guide in the tradition of Professor Barbara De Angelis’s HOW TO MAKE LOVE ALL THE TIME, and Ellen Kreidman’s LIGHT HER FIRE, discusses at great length the mental, physical, and emotional factors that promote healthy relationships. It also discusses how couples should work on these factors to enjoy more fulfilling sex into old age.

Sex is, without doubt, a physical act—it can happen even without intimacy. However, in a loving relationship, it should be the physical expression of intimacy, and should come from a place of love and connection. In other words, sex and intimacy should be inextricably linked: intimacy should build sex and sex should build intimacy. This insightful and exciting book discusses how couples can make that possible.

Here is a sample of the topics you will find in the book:

1. Bad conversational habits that ruin intimacy
2. Bad communication habits that ruin intimacy
3. Seven exercises that improve sexual performance in men and women
4. Knowing your love muscles and keeping them fit for sex
5. How to set the mood for lovemaking
6. Foreplay board games to spice up your lovemaking
7. Taking your penis to the “Gym” with the Hydromax
8. How to effectively manage sexual problems of women

The Culper Ring by Charles River Editors

The Culper Ring: The History and Legacy of the Revolutionary War’s Most Famous Spy Ring


*Includes pictures
*Includes correspondence between the spy ring and explains the results of their activities
*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading
*Includes a table of contents

After the siege of Boston forced the British to evacuate that city in March 1776, Continental Army commander George Washington suspected that the British would move by sea to New York City, the next logical target in an attempt to end a colonial insurrection. He thus rushed his army south to defend the city.

Washington guessed correctly, but it would be to no avail. Unlike Boston, New York City’s terrain featured few defensible positions. The city lacked a high point from which to launch a siege, as the peninsula of Boston was fortunate to have. Moreover, Washington wasn’t sure defending the city was necessary, hoping that an expedition launched toward Quebec like the one Benedict Arnold had led in late 1775 would keep the British away from New York anyway. However, Congress thought otherwise, and demanded that Washington defend New York.

Washington thus did what he was told, and it nearly resulted in the army’s demise. In the summer of 1776, the British conducted the largest amphibious expedition in North America’s history at the time, landing over 20,000 troops on Long Island. British General William Howe, who had led the British at Bunker Hill and would later become commander in chief of the armies in North America, easily captured Staten Island, which Washington was incapable of defending without a proper navy. Washington’s army attempted to fight, but Washington was badly outmaneuvered, and his army was nearly cut off from escape. The withdrawal across New York City was enormously disorderly, with many of Washington’s troops so scared that they deserted. Others were sick as a result of the dysentery and smallpox plaguing the Continental Army in New York. In what was arguably the worst defeat of the Revolution, Washington was ashamed, and he also felt betrayed, by both his troops and Congress.

However, unbeknownst to nearly everyone, Washington had some men remain active in New York City: the now famous Culper Ring, one of the Revolution’s first major intelligence efforts. The ring consisted mostly of a group of civilians in and around New York City who spied on the British forces and Loyalist Americans and reported what they saw and overheard ultimately to Washington, who took a personal, hands-on approach to their management. After modern histories brought their story more fully to light, these spies have since become the subject (with the historical facts somewhat altered) of a recent hit television show, Turn: Washington’s Spies.

Without question, the relatively little-known clandestine actions of these patriotic men and women contributed to the eventual victory of the long struggle for American independence, and several good books cover part or all of the history of the Culper Ring. However, the main sources consist of the correspondence, much of which has somehow survived, between the members of the ring and their military handlers. Like other spy tales, theirs is a story of courage fraught with constant suspense at being found out and facing a caught spy’s usual fate of imprisonment and execution. Indeed, around the time the ring was being organized, America’s most famous spy, Nathan Hale, had been caught with maps of British positions on Long Island in his possession and had been summarily hanged.

The Culper Ring: The History and Legacy of the Revolutionary War’s Most Famous Spy Ring profiles the members of the ring and their activities. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about the Culper Ring like never before, in no time at all.

Deliverance Mary Fields by Miantae Metcalf McConnell

Deliverance Mary Fields, First African American Woman Star Route Mail Carrier in the United States: A Montana History


AWARD WINNING CREATIVE NONFICTION BIOGRAPHY

1885 – 1914. Mary Fields, a fifty-three-year old second-generation slave, emancipated and residing in Toledo, receives news of her friend’s impending death. Remedies packed in her satchel, Mary rushes to board the Northern Pacific. Days later, she arrives in the Montana wilderness to find Mother Mary Amadeus lying on frozen earth in a broken-down cabin. Certain that the cloister of frostbit Ursuline nuns and their students, Indian girls rescued from nearby reservations, will not survive without assistance, Mary decides to stay.

She builds a hennery, makes repairs to living quarters, cares for stock, and treks into the mountains to provide food. Brushes with death do not deter her. Mary drives a horse and wagon through perilous terrain and sub zero blizzards to improve the lives of missionaries, homesteaders and Indians and, in the process, her own.

After weathering wolf attacks, wagon crashes and treacherous conspiracies by scoundrels, local politicians and the state’s first Catholic bishop, Mary Fields creates another daring plan. An avid patriot, she is determined to register for the vote. The price is high. Will she manifest her personal vision of independence?

The Things Our Fathers Saw by Matthew Rozell

The Things Our Fathers Saw—The Untold Stories of the World War II Generation-Volume II: War in the Air—From the Great Depression to Combat


Dying for freedom isn’t the worst that could happen. Being forgotten is.

 


— “You flew with what I would call ‘controlled fear’. You were scared stiff, but it was controlled. My ball turret gunner—he couldn’t take it anymore… I guess he was right. He’s dead now. But he had lost control of the fear. He never got out of that ball turret; he died in that ball turret.” —B-24 bombardier


 

~THE LONG-AWAITED SEQUEL IN THE BEST SELLING ‘The Things Our Fathers Saw’ SERIES~

How soon we forget. Or perhaps, we were never told. That is understandable, given what they saw.


— “I spent a lot of time in hospitals. I had a lot of trouble reconciling how my mother died [of a cerebral hemorrhage] from the telegram she opened, saying I was [shot down and] “missing in action”. I didn’t explain to her the fact that ‘missing in action’ is not necessarily ‘killed in action’. You know? I didn’t even think about that. How do you think you feel when you find out you killed your mother?” —B-24 bombardier


At the height of World War II, LOOK Magazine profiled a small upstate New York community for a series of articles portraying it as the wholesome, patriotic model of life on the home front. Seventy years later, a history teacher tracks down the veterans with a connection to “Hometown, USA” who fought the war in the air over Europe, men who were tempered in the tough times of the Great Depression and forged in battle. He rescues and resurrects firsthand accounts of combat and brotherhood, of captivity and redemption, and the aftermath of a war that left no American community unscathed.
Here are the stories that the magazine could not tell, from a vanishing generation speaking to America today.


— “I was in the hospital with a flak wound. The next mission, the entire crew was killed. The thing that haunts me is that I can’t put a face to the guy who was a replacement. He was an 18-year old Jewish kid named Henry Vogelstein from Brooklyn. It was his first and last mission. He made his only mission with a crew of strangers.” —B-24 navigator


By the end of 2018, fewer than 400,000 WW II veterans will still be with us, out of the over 16 million who put on a uniform. But why is it that today, nobody seems to know these stories?
Maybe our veterans did not volunteer to tell us; maybe we were too busy with our own lives to ask. But they opened up to the younger generation, when a history teacher told their grandchildren to ask.


— “The German fighters picked us. I told the guys, ‘Keep your eyes open, we are about to be hit!’ I saw about six or eight feet go off my left wing. I rang the ‘bail-out’ signal, and I reached out and grabbed the co-pilot out of his seat. I felt the airplane climbing, and I thought to myself, ‘If this thing stalls out, and starts falling down backwards, no one is going to get out…’” —B-17 pilot


This book brings you the previously untold firsthand accounts of combat and brotherhood, of captivity and redemption, and the aftermath of a war that left no American community unscathed.
As we forge ahead as a nation, we owe it to ourselves to become reacquainted with a generation that is fast leaving us, who asked for nothing but gave everything, to attune ourselves as Americans to a broader appreciation of what we stand for.

— “A must-read in every high school in America. It is a very poignant look back at our greatest generation; maybe it will inspire the next one.”

Emotional Intelligence by Russell Strong

Emotional Intelligence: Become The Leader That Everyone Likes And Boost Your Work Performance By Positive Psychology (Leadership Development, Interpersonal … Empathy, Professional Relationships)


“IQ gets you hired, EQ gets you promoted”

Emotional Intelligence: Become The Leader That Everyone Likes And Boost Your Work Performance By Positive Psychology contains proven steps and strategies on how to become the leader that everyone admires and improve your work performance.

Being an efficient leader goes beyond being a principled and a no-nonsense team leader. Certain qualities make you a leader that everyone loves to work with; one of these qualities is your level of intelligence.

Your level of intelligence plays a very vital role in determining how good a leader you can be; however, intelligence is not the only, or the most important trait you need to have in order to succeed as a leader. Every effective leader became so due to his/her emotional quotient level rather than his/her intelligence quotient level.

Intelligence quotient is all about your intellect, which is your ability to learn new things. Emotional Intelligence on the other hand, is an alterable set of abilities and skills you can easily acquire and improve with the right practices. Although some leaders possess far higher emotional intelligence than others do, anyone can easily develop his or her emotional intelligence level even if emotional intelligence is not one of your inborn qualities. Studies show that your Intelligence Quotient remains constant at every age, but Emotional Intelligence Quotient is something you can improve at any time to become more psychologically aware of your feelings and the feelings of people around you.

So, why is Emotional Intelligence very important? You need to understand that leaders are the emotional thermostats of the team they lead; therefore, to become the chief executive officer everybody loves, you need to become the chief emotional officer as well. Several literature available on bookshelves and online support the idea that a leader’s success comes from his/her emotional intelligence and his/her ability to handle the emotional outburst and inconsistencies of the team members, and at the same time, keep his/her own flow of emotions in check.

If you are a leader who has been searching for answers to why you have not been as effective in your role as a leader as you should be, this book contains all the relevant information on how to become more effective through emotional intelligence and psychological awakening. In this book, you will learn how to become better at what you do and win the love of everyone in your team, which will help you boost your work performance.

Here is a quick preview of the topics inside :

  • What Is Emotional Intelligence?
  • How To Know Your Emotional Intelligence Level
  • Emotional Intelligence In Leadership: The 5 Key Elements
  • How To Make Good Use Of Emotional Intelligence As A Leader
  • Emotional Intelligence: How To Use It To Win The Love Of Your Employees And Subordinates
  • Positive Mindset: Why You Need It To Succeed In Business
  • How Positivity Improves Performance In The Workplace
  • And Much, Much More!
