Summary

The Biggest Untold Economic Story of Our Time

Here is the truth that the powerful Dirty Energy public relations machine doesn’t want you to know: the ascent of solar energy is upon us. Solar-generated electricity has risen exponentially in the last few years and employment in the solar industry has doubled since 2009. Meanwhile, electricity from coal has declined to pre-World War II levels as the fossil fuel industry continues to shed jobs.

Danny Kennedy systematically refutes the lies spread by solar’s opponents—that it is expensive, inefficient, and unreliable; that it is kept alive only by subsidies; that it can’t be scaled; and many other untruths. He shows that we need a rooftop revolution to break the entrenched power of the coal, oil, nuclear, and gas industries  Solar energy can create more jobs, return our nation to prosperity, and ensure the sustainability and safety of our planet. Now is the time to move away from the dangerous energy sources of the past and unleash the amazing potential of the sun.

    The top 10 things you didnt know...

    Go out and ask a bunch of your friends whether or not they have a preference for Coke and Pepsi. Some people say they taste the same, but most people will say they can taste the difference. You probably have some vague memory of the ads you’ve seen over the years for these products. Scantly clad, young attractive guys and girls in the prime of their fertile lives. Usually in party or holiday mode. Socialising. Relaxing. Wearing the latest trends in fashion, looking cool and having flirtatious fun.   
    Consciously there is not much going on, but branding doesn’t work in our conscious mind. And our unconcious mind sees a very different meaning here. All the advertisers have to do is trigger you to have very subtle feelings. So subtle, that you don’t even realise that they are there. Its the repetition of those subtle feelings that programs your unconscious mind to create the meaning. You see those messages all the time throughout your whole life. And at some point, eventually, you’re going to feel a desire to fit in with the cool kids (especially during your adolescent years). And in those moments, your uncurious has already primed you to associate those feelings with certain brands through all those repetitious messages you thought nothing of at the time. 
    The take home message is that they still have to make a product that tastes at least reasonably good of course. But remember, the taste is only part of it. The rest is in the psychology of how the brands are marketed to manipulate the feelings and meanings we attach to them which distorts how we think they taste. 
    So if advertisers can trick our brain into making us prefer products, then how can we take back the power and control? If you would like to know how exactly to trick your brain into craving healthy habits instead, then this book is for you.

    The Insurgents - David Petraeus...

    Based on previously unavailable documents and interviews with more than one hundred key players, including General David Petraeus, The Insurgents unfolds against the backdrop of two wars waged against insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan. But the main insurgency is the one led at home by a new generation of officers-including Petraeus, John Nagl, David Kilcullen, and H. R. McMaster-who were seized with an idea on how to fight these kinds of "small wars" and who adapted their enemies' techniques to overhaul their own army. Fred Kaplan explains where their idea came from and how the men and women who latched onto this idea created a community (some would refer to themselves as a "cabal") and maneuvered the idea through the highest echelons of power.This is a cautionary tale about how creative ideas can harden into dogma, how smart strategists-"the best and the brightest" of today-can win bureaucratic battles but still lose the wars. The Insurgents made the U.S. military more adaptive to the conflicts of the post-Cold War era, but their self-confidence led us deeper into wars we shouldn't have fought and couldn't help but lose.

    Another interesting book by Clara Dillingham Pierson, this time focusing on the poultry you might have in your farmyard! The chickens, ducks, and turkeys get some new experiences as a new owner comes to the farm, and does some things that seem very odd to them. Learn along with the chickens about the new owner, and also some other things that are worse, like the awful hook worms that some young chickens experienced when they disobeyed their mom.

    Dropshipping Guide for Beginners...

    Drop shipping is a retail fulfillment model that allows you to purchase products individually from a wholesaler and ship them directly to your customer. Instead of purchasing a large number of products, you simply go into partnership with a drop shipping supplier and list their merchandise for sale. Then, once you get a buyer/receive an order, you forward it to the supplier for fulfillment. The supplier will ship the product directly from their warehouse to your customer, and charge you only for the price of the shipped item (product). 
     
    The drop shipping model has some number of advantages. Apart from being easy to start with low capital and low risks, locational flexibility coupled with wide range of product selection are also some of the reasons why drop shipping is a great business. 
     
    However, one must be cautious of some factors to ensure a successful drop shipping business. Dealing with many customer and supplier errors which may affect delivery should be properly tackled. This book contains detailed information that can help you successfully run an e-commerce business. It will also teach you all you need to know about the drop shipping model, which will also help you run a successful e-commerce business. So take your time to take in all the information in this book and try to use it as a guideline, most especially when you are new in the e-commerce world.
