    “The best book there is about the stock market”—timeless investing basics by the host of the Emmy Award–winning show Adam Smith’s Money World (The New York Times Book Review). This essential book takes readers to the Street to learn about the intricacies of money and how the stock market impacts every area of our lives. According to the author, the key to making wise, lucrative investments is knowing ourselves. In witty, easily accessible language, he shares pithy insights about the role of intuition and the psychology of guilt, arguing that there is no substitute for information. Smith’s Irregular Rules shatter common myths and misconceptions, revealing why nothing works all the time and illustrating how greed and fear fuel the market.   Readers will learn about the safest types of investing, the key to following market trends, and how to capitalize growth, gleaning tips on stock movers, winners and losers, and much more. Peppered with entertaining and prescient anecdotes, The Money Game analyzes who makes the really big money and explores the meaning of our desire to become rich. From selling short and buying long to Wall Street’s crowd mentality, from what constitutes a random walk to why timing is everything, this is the definitive portrait of the Street, then and now.

    The true story behind the classic TV show: A father’s delightful account of raising eight free-spirited children in 1970s America. Tom Braden had a colorful career: He parachuted into Nazi-occupied France, directed the CIA’s covert operations program during the early years of the Cold War, ran for public office, owned a newspaper, served as executive secretary for the Museum of Modern Art, and cohosted the CNN show Crossfire. He counted among his friends David Brinkley, Robert Frost, Kirk Douglas, and Nelson Rockefeller. But Braden considered fatherhood both his most important job and his biggest adventure. No wonder; he and his wife, Joan, a State Department official and Washington society hostess, raised eight children during one of the most tumultuous periods in American history.   In this diverting family memoir, Braden shares a treasure trove of amusing anecdotes—from the time his youngest daughter’s pet sheep interrupted a dinner party with a Supreme Court justice to the telegram US Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy sent after the birth of the Bradens’ eighth child: “Congratulations. I surrender.” (The Kennedys had seven children at the time). With wit and wisdom, Braden also addresses some of the most serious issues, including drugs, alcohol, and premarital sex, faced by parents in an era of deep distrust between generations.   When ABC proposed adapting Eight Is Enough for television, Braden found the idea so preposterous he sold the rights for one dollar. The award-winning series starring Dick Van Patten and Betty Buckley ran for five seasons and launched the Hollywood careers of many young actors, including Willie Aames and Ralph Macchio. A celebration of the joys and tribulations of fatherhood, Eight Is Enough speaks with warmth, humor, and compassion to parents and children everywhere.

    Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome is a condition brought about by the adrenal glands' failure in hormone production, thereby disallowing the body to cope with stress effectively. The adrenal gland is supposed to produce the hormone called cortisol which is a very useful hormone for the body to be able to cope with different stress and also to fight infections. But when a person experiences adrenal fatigue syndrome, it means that the production of cortisol is hampered and so the body feels fatigued and lacking of energy most of the time. This is why adrenal fatigue syndrome is also known as intense stress or chronic fatigue that cannot easily be fixed or coped with even if the body has had enough rest already.

    Do you want to protect your brain, decrease your chances of heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancers or simply fill the nutritional gaps in your body? Just grab a fresh, crunchy cucumber and start munching! For a fruit (not really a vegetable) that is made of mostly water, cucumber packs a mighty nutritional punch.
     
    Cucumber’s anti-oxidant profile is impressive.  The power of antioxidants is well documented - they protect the cells from free radicals that accelerate the progression of various diseases, while slowing down the aging process.
    
    Anyway, I will like to stop here but implore you to get this book now and get the whole dose of all the healthy benefits of making this fruit vegetable a welcome part of your diet! Just do it...you will thank me later for this advise.
