Summary

From USA TODAY Bestselling Author, C. L. Stone, read First Kiss, the tenth book in The Academy Ghost Bird Series.  
The time has finally come for Sang Sorenson to be formally introduced to the Academy. Protocol dictates the boys keep the details of Sang’s official introduction to the Academy a secret from her. The only thing they can advise her to do is to work on what will become her mantra: She is determined to stay with her team, no matter what. 
Despite her wishes, however, the boys are second-guessing her place with them, concerned for her safety. With dangers all around and threats closing in, some of the boys are questioning if this is the right time to bring her to meet the Academy at all. 
Sang is challenged with being the brave face among them and instilling the confidence needed to keep her with them. However, in order to appear compliant with the Academy’s rules, she has to be willing to listen and try their suggestions. As the boys have suspected and feared, the council wants to see how she’ll work with a different team. An all-girl team. She has no choice but to go along with the proposal or risk losing a shot at the Academy. 
But when the Academy’s inner world is revealed to her, Sang knows that she’s finally found her place—somewhere she belongs—and she sees a future with them. The deeper she gets, the more she sees how she can make a difference. Learning what she is capable of and the impact she can have, she feels obligated to help. There’s so few girls, and they need her. 
The guys try to stick to their plan, but every team must pay their debts, and the cost of keeping her might be more than any of them can afford.  
It’s up to Sang alone to prove to the Academy where she truly belongs—but can she resist the call of a new team that needs her?

    Money managers have traditionally used hedge funds as they would mutual funds: to pool investors’ money and place it in financial instruments in an effort to make a high positive return. Hedge funds have typically been available only to the affluent or to investors with inside contacts, but today that has changed. Almost any investor can now participate in a hedge fund and earn those high returns.
     
    Hedge funds saw a 20 percent increase in one recent year, posting the strongest gain in a decade and installing confidence back in investors. If the pace continues, hedge fund trading will far outpace all other investments. However, you must know what you are doing. The Hedge Funds Book will detail how to invest in hedge funds, evaluate their performance, and employ investing strategies and tactics using the latest technology to set up your account online and see the biggest returns. You will be able to handle fees, taxes, and risks, and you will get little known data to help you double or even triple your investment — all while avoiding the common traps and pitfalls.
     
    Instruction is great, but advice from experts is even better, and the experts chronicled in this book are earning millions. Aside from learning the basics of hedge fund trading, you will be privy to investors’ closed club secrets and proven successful ideas. If you are interested in learning everything there is to know about hedge fund investing along with hundreds of hints, tips, and strategies to minimize your risk and maximize your return, this book is for you.

    In Operation Happiness, happiness strategist and life coach Kristi Ling teaches you how to create immediate, positive shifts in your life by proving that happiness is a skill that can be cultivated, learned, and mastered--much like playing an instrument.
     
    After experiencing a long-term illness, a divorce, and the sudden deaths of loved ones, Ling spent years studying the science of happiness. She focused on identifying and testing specific emotional support tools. During this process, she discovered something that goes against everything we've been lead to believe about happiness: it isn't just something you feel; it's something you do. Based on this discovery, Ling outlines the three foundational principles that lead to a life of joy: Change Your View, Make Over Your Mornings, and Create New Habits.
     
    Part memoir and part how-to guide, Operation Happiness combines compelling personal stories, inspiring perspective shifts, and clear actionable steps to help you create a solid foundation for sustainable happiness that will propel you into a new, light-filled way of living.

    ABOUT THE BOOK 
    High blood pressure (HBP) or hypertension, a prevalent condition in the United States, is a major risk factor for stroke and heart attack. According to the American Heart Association, the economic burden to our society from HBP related problems and diseases is more than $93.5 billion per year. 
    Approximately 90 to 95% of all HBP patients have so-called essential HBP for which the cause is unknown. The remainder 5 to 10% has secondary HBP due to diseases of the arteries, heart, the adrenal glands or kidneys. The blood pressure measurement consists of two numbers, the top number is known as systolic and the bottom number, diastolic, BP expressed in mm Hg. Systolic BP is generated during the contraction of the heart whereas diastolic BP is generated during relaxation in between heartbeats.

    EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK 
    The spectrum of Natural Medicines includes natural whole food as well as specific dietary supplements. Based on research conducted in the last two decades it has been repeatedly shown that natural whole foods (fruits, vegetables) with balanced minerals, vitamins, antioxidants as well as the right amount of micro and macronutrients are in general more effective and safer than any specific dietary supplement for the prevention and treatment of HBP.
    Several aspects of the Natural Medicine relevant to HBP will include the following:
    Source
    Mechanism
    Evidence-based of effectiveness
    Adverse Reactions
    Precautions
    Dosage
    The effectiveness of these Natural Medicines will be ranked into one of four categories:
    ***E:Clinically effective demonstrated by multiple randomized clinical studies.
    **E:Clinically beneficial demonstrated by several controlled clinical studies although some studies may show contradictory results.
    *E: Limited effectiveness demonstrated by controlled clinical studies

    10% Human - How Your Body's...

    Alanna Collen

    You are just 10% human. For every one of the cells that make up the vessel that you call your body, there are nine impostor cells hitching a ride. You are not just flesh and blood, muscle and bone, brain and skin, but also bacteria and fungi. Over your lifetime, you will carry the equivalent weight of five African elephants in microbes. You are not an individual but a colony. 
    Until recently, we had thought our microbes hardly mattered, but science is revealing a different story, one in which microbes run our bodies and becoming a healthy human is impossible without them. 
    In this riveting, shocking, and beautifully written book, biologist Alanna Collen draws on the latest scientific research to show how our personal colony of microbes influences our weight, our immune system, our mental health, and even our choice of partner. She argues that so many of our modern diseases—obesity, autism, mental illness, digestive disorders, allergies, autoimmunity afflictions, and even cancer—have their root in our failure to cherish our most fundamental and enduring relationship: that with our personal colony of microbes. 
    Many of the questions about modern diseases left unanswered by the Human Genome Project are illuminated by this new science. And the good news is that unlike our human cells, we can change our microbes for the better. Collen's book is a revelatory and indispensable guide. It is science writing at its most relevant: life—and your body—will never seem the same again.
