Summary

 Hauntings lurk and spirits linger in the Empire State—from Manhattan’s Ear Inn to the Seneca Hill Ghost in Oswego.   Reader, beware! Turn these pages and enter the world of the paranormal, where ghosts and ghouls alike creep just out of sight. Author Cheri Farnsworth shines a light in the dark corners of New York and scares those spirits out of hiding in this thrilling collection. From apparitions and objects that fly off of tables at the Manhattan Bistro, to a specter that stalks Pulpit Rock in Lake Placid, there’s no shortage of bone-chilling tales to keep you up at night. Around the campfire or tucked away on a dark and stormy night, this big book of ghost stories is a hauntingly good read.  “Whether you’re an armchair ghost enthusiast or prefer to visit haunted locales, this book, excellently organized for both, is a perfect guide and companion.” —Tamara Thorne, author of Old Wives’ Tales

    How to be heard through the noise: “A must read for today’s busy, 24/7 professional who needs to communicate both thoughtfully and instantaneously.” —Mark Herman, EVP, Booz Allen Hamilton 
     
    Loud & Clear is an essential guide to the effective communication skills that help you get what you want. Whoever you need to get a message through to—an employer, team, committee, staffer, neighbor, teacher, student, or spouse—this book will show you how to get their attention by: 
     
    • Using your head. Before you even think about opening your mouth, you need to think long and hard about the person you want to influence and how to say what you want. 
     
    • Connecting with your listener(s). How to establish chemistry and intimacy with your listeners—from an individual to a stadium-sized audience—to make them want to listen to you. 
     
    • Keeping their interest. Why “soft” communication, such as storytelling and picture-painting, are important devices, and how to use them effectively. Plus, how to avoid the dreaded “drone factor.” 
     
    • Saying it right. Speech and body language techniques make a lasting impression. 
     
    • Anticipating and overcoming the negatives. How to recognize disaster before it strikes, and handle it when it does. 
     
    Each chapter also features a topic-specific “plan of attack,” plus client stories, checklists, worksheets, and quizzes. It can be hard to get through in today’s noisy world—but for those trying to get a raise, motivate a team, organize a group, or just get better customer service, these proven methods help you say what you mean to get what you want.

    For Antara Karvade, a story is like stagnant water on top of a waterfall. Even after standing still, it is not the still one. She writes - "The stories in this collection are spontaneous stories written on the simple call of the mind. It is true that one's environment, thoughts, experiences and the inner turmoil of the mind have always been vocal in the author's works and these Creations are also no exception." For the specific mood of these stories, she writes, "The environment around women has changed rapidly in the past, but the acceptance of women who adapt themselves to that environment has not increased that fast." A total of 16 stories have been collected in this collection and all these stories have different emotional bases and stand on the real mental ground, keeping the woman at the centre. In these, women's discussion, women's psychology and the flight of female characters are easily visible.

    June 6, 1944, D-Day: Allied forces took the beaches at Normandy—and the naval engineering genius of Edward Ellsberg would play a crucial part. Before World War II, Edward Ellsberg had already established himself as a true innovator and master naval engineer, revolutionizing the salvage and rescue of sunken vessels like no one before. Then, having served his country for over a decade, he retired to private life.   But his work was not finished. Within hours of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the aging and physically ill Ellsberg was on a train to Washington, DC, to offer his services once again. And they would be needed for the greatest military invasion in human history.   In The Far Shore, Rear Admiral Ellsberg describes in detail the meticulous preparation and efforts behind the Normandy Invasion—efforts that would keep the flow of men and materials streaming onto the beaches and into the heart of Europe. From dealing with the extremes of engineering possibilities to wrestling with the knowledge that countless lives would depend on the success of his intricate planning, Ellsberg would work himself into exhaustion to do his part. His achievements would eventually earn him the Distinguished Service Medal and lead to his appointment as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire.   Vividly described by a man who saw firsthand the horrors of war and the cost of victory, The Far Shore takes readers through the brutal surf, onto the bloody beaches, and into the mind of one of World War II’s little-known heroes.
