Summary

The Bullyologist - Breaking the Silence on Bullying 
Through adversity comes great power.. 
Working in corporate Human Resources at an oil and gas project in Australia, Jessica Hickman was a champion for positive change, winning awards and recognition for her outstanding work in identifying gaps in mental health support in the Resources industry and helping create safer work environments. 
But behind the scenes, Jessica endured prolonged workplace bullying that included physical and emotional intimidation, misogyny, threats, harassment and verbal abuse, which over time led to extreme anxiety and stress-related hospitalisation.   
Although her job was to implement best practice for employee support and to encourage healthy, respectful and productive company culture, Jessica herself became the victim of a relentless workplace targeting that caused her to live in fear at her own desk.  
She filed over 30 reports to upper management about her manager's behaviour with mixed results. Working through her own suffering, she was torn between a desire to help others and serious thoughts about abandoning an industry in the midst of a rise in suicides. Bound by a visa restriction and the concern that if she left, someone she cared about would have no mental health support, she stayed out of fear - putting her own happiness on hold to help those who needed her most.  
Turning fear into fuel, Jessica now uses her valuable experience to be an advocate for positive and lasting change. Thriving in the aftermath of her 'post-traumatic growth', she now helps others understand the complex nature of modern bullying, educating today's leaders about the damaging effects toxic workforce cultures can have on personal and business success. 
Jessica Hickman was born in Wales and moved to Australia in 2013. Through a three-year personal ordeal with workplace bullying, she empowered herself to become a dynamic activist and advocate in the field of bullying, mental health and positive relationships.She is the founder of Bullyology, a professional anti-bullying methodology dedicated to tackling the global scourge of bullying while striving to promote healthy relationships in workplaces, at schools and online.

    Simone de Beauvoir Philosophy...

    In the introduction to The Second Sex, Simone de Beauvoir notes that "a man never begins by establishing himself as an individual of a certain sex: his being a man poses no problem." Nancy Bauer begins her book by asking: "Then what kind of a problem does being a woman pose?" Bauer's aim is to show that in answering this question The Second Sex dramatizes the extent to which being a woman poses a philosophical problem.  
    This book is a call for philosophers as well as feminists to turn, or return to, The Second Sex. Bauer shows that Beauvoir's magnum opus, written a quarter-century before the development of contemporary feminist philosophy, constitutes a meditation on the relationship between women and philosophy that remains profoundly undervalued. She argues that the extraordinary effect The Second Sex has had on women's lives, then and now, can be traced to Beauvoir's discovery of a new way to philosophize—a way grounded in her identity as a woman. In offering a new interpretation of The Second Sex, Bauer shows how philosophy can be politically productive for women while remaining genuinely philosophical.

    For several generations, comics were regarded as a boy's club--created  by, for, and about men and boys. In the twenty-first century, however,  comics have seen a rise of female creators, characters, and readers.Throughout the first half of the  twentieth century, the medium was enjoyed equally by both sexes, and  girls were the protagonists of some of the earliest, most successful,  and most influential comics. In Funny Girls: Guffaws, Guts, and Gender in Classic American Comics,  Michelle Ann Abate examines the important but long-overlooked cadre of  young female protagonists in US comics during the first half of the  twentieth century. She treats characters ranging from Little Orphan  Annie and Nancy to Little Lulu, Little Audrey of the Harvey Girls, and  Li'l Tomboy--a group that collectively forms a tradition of funny girls  in American comics.Abate demonstrates the massive popularity  these funny girls enjoyed, revealing their unexplored narrative  richness, aesthetic complexity, and critical possibility. Much of the  humor in these comics arose from questioning gender roles, challenging  social manners, and defying the status quo. Further, they embodied  powerful points of collection about both the construction and  intersection of race, class, gender, and age, as well as popular  perceptions about children, representations of girlhood, and changing  attitudes regarding youth. Finally, but just as importantly, these  strips shed light on another major phenomenon within comics: branding,  licensing, and merchandising. Collectively, these comics did far more  than provide amusement--they were serious agents for cultural commentary  and sociopolitical change.

    A Green Beret’s gripping memoir of American Special Forces in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.   In 1970, on his second tour to Vietnam, Nick Brokhausen served in Recon Team Habu, CCN. Officially, it was known as the Studies and Observations group. In fact, this Special Forces squad, which Brokhausen calls “an unwashed, profane, ribald, joyously alive fraternity,” undertook some of the most dangerous and suicidal reconnaissance missions ever in the enemy-controlled territory of Cambodia and Laos. But they didn’t infiltrate the jungles alone. They fought alongside the Montagnards—oppressed minorities from the mountain highlands, trained by the US military in guerilla tactics, armed, accustomed to the wild, and fully engaged in a war against the North Vietnamese. Together this small unit formed the backbone of ground reconnaissance in the Republic of Vietnam, racking up medals for valor—but at a terrible cost.   “In colorful, military-jargon-laced prose leavened by gallows humor, Brokhausen pulls few punches describing what it was like to navigate remote jungle terrain under the constant threat of enemy fire. A smartly written, insider’s view of one rarely seen Vietnam War battleground.” —Booklist “[An] exceptionally raw look at the Vietnam War just at the apex of its unpopularity. . . . This battle-scarred memoir is an excellent tribute to the generation that fought, laughed, and died in Southeast Asia.” —New York Journal of Books
