As the title suggests, a driving, rhythmic pulse permeates throughout this contemporary original selection by Richard Meyer. The piece incorporates two diverse moods ? a highly rhythmic first section in B Minor, built on rising and falling thirds, followed by a simple chorale in folk song style presented first in the violins and then passed throughout the ensemble. As this slow section winds down, the energy is once again established with the re-introduction of earlier material. The chorale is then heard again, this time coupled with the energetic figures that started the piece. A great choice for your next concert or contest, Momentum provides a wide variety of outstanding teaching opportunities while using a fresh new sound that your students will love! (5:30)
Nobel Prize recipient Muhammad Yunus profiles 20 Nobel Peace Prize laureates with Grammy-winning producer and New York Times best-selling author Kabir Sehgal, Monica Yunus, and Camille Zamora, teaching listeners to incorporate lessons from each laureate´s life into their own. When Swedish chemist and engineer Alfred B. Nobel passed in 1896, he left several millions in his will to establish the Nobel Peace Prize, awarded annually in six concentrations: peace, literature, physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, and economic science. Since its establishment, there have been more than 130 Nobel Peace laureates selected, each bringing his/her own unique experiences and lessons forward as an example to others. In Legion of Peace, Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, Kabir Sehgal, Monica Yunus, and Camille Zamora profile 20 prize recipients in a narrative accompanied by songs inspired by these great leaders, composed by Grammy-nominated children´s artist Lori Henriques Quintet and three-time Grammy-nominated pianist Joey Alexander.Through this lyrical narrative, the authors share stories of these laureates´ seemingly ordinary actions that transformed their lives and communities. The authors assign a superpower to each laureate that exemplifies the one basic principle that guided their actions, demonstrating to listeners that all people from vastly different backgrounds can be connected by a common thread to come together to form a legion of peace. 1.

In this behind-the-scenes look at the making of a champion, the coach of the Villanova University men´s basketball team shares his competitive and cooperative philosophy along with lessons from his coaching career and the story of his personal road to success. When Kris Jenkins sank a three-pointer at the buzzer to win the 2016 NCAA Tournament, it was a victory not just for a team and its coach but for an entire program. In his 20th season with the Villanova program, including a five-year stint as an assistant to Coach Rollie Massimino, Coach Jay Wright had achieved his lifelong dream - and witnessed the culmination of a decades-long effort to build a culture of winning around a set of core values. In Attitude, Coach Wright shares some of the leadership secrets that have enabled Villanova, a private university with an undergraduate enrollment of less than 6,500, to thrive in the hypercompetitive world of college athletics. As he recounts the story of the 2015-2016 Wildcats, Coach Wright offers anecdotes from his own journey up the ladder of success, with lessons learned on the Little League playing fields of his youth and wisdom passed down from his coaches and mentors. Each step of Villanova´s journey to a national championship incorporates a signature term torn from Coach Wright´s own motivational playbook. Here are key principles that aspiring leaders can apply not only on the basketball court but in the boardroom, the classroom, and the living room. From learning to accept your role to remembering to honor those who came before you, Jay Wright´s core values provide a positive blueprint for transformational team building based on the idea that anyone - from the head coach to the last player on the bench - can be a leader when the moment demands it. The product of a lifetime´s worth of championship-level preparation, Attitude is perfect for anyone looking to build a team, achieve a goal, or nurture their own winning 1. Language: English.

For decades, fixing the United States´ broken immigration system has been one of the most urgent challenges facing our country, and time and time again, politicians have passed the buck. With anti-immigrant sentiment rising around the country, as evidenced by the passage of a controversial new law in Arizona, it is now more important than ever to remember the role immigrants play in enriching our economy and culture, and to find a way to incorporate the millions of productive, law-abiding workers who have been drawn to the United States by the inexorable pull of freedom and economic opportunity. No longer should they be forced to work in the shadows, with no hope for equal rights as American citizens.In this timely book, award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos makes the case for a practical and politically achievable solution to this emotional issue. Ramos argues that we have a simple choice: to take a pragmatic approach that deals with the reality of immigration, or to continue a cruel and capricious system that doesn´t work, wastes billions of dollars, and which stands in direct opposition to our national principles. 1.

Derived from the Swedish phrase Lagom är bäst, meaning ´´the right amount is best; in moderation, in balance´´, langom is a deeply held philosophy closely tied to the Swedish cultural and social ideology of fairness and equality. Lagom is believed to have begun with Viking culture: at gatherings, when a bowl of mead was passed around in a circle, it was important that everyone sipped ´´just enough´´ or their ´´fair share´´ so there was enough to be enjoyed by all. Deeply ingrained in the Swedish psyche, lagom is about enjoying balance in every aspect of life - from work and leisure to family and food and everything in between. Experienced bakers know by touch when dough they´re kneading is lagom - not too moist and not too dry. At the office, professionals who work hard - but not to the detriment of other aspects of their lives - are following the ideal of lagom. In this inviting, inspirational guide, Niki Brantmark explains lagom and explains how to incorporate it into your own lifestyle, including: Home: declutter, keep items you love; buy consciously Work: take regular coffee breaks away from your desk, Swedish style; learn to ´´switch off´´ at home Money: more isn´t happiness - live within your means and be thrifty without sacrificing quality Body and mind: exercise that fits your life and healthy habits that make you feel better (starting with more sleep) Food: enjoy that slice of cake, but remember, portions in moderation Vacation: make the most of holidays and time off Leisure: get out in nature - take a hike in the woods or a dip in the sea Family: keep it simple and organized Friendship: form bonds that will last a lifetime And much more In an interconnected world filled with goal-oriented perfectionists, Lagom reminds us to slow down, to decompress and destress, to be mindful of sustain 1.

There´s an amazing inner world occurring beyond what you can actually see with your eyes. This world incorporates all the fundamental elements of life such as resources, power, wealth, and the real definition of your life. It is a part of you that makes it possible for you to live your life fully, live large, do and be just about anything you want. Having said that, the majority of people are trying to thrive in this world with the use of the five basic senses that you originally used while growing up and developing. Your external senses - touch, hearing, smell, taste, and sight - are extremely essential assets but these should not be used exclusively to direct your life. Contrary to the common belief, these five senses aren´t the most extraordinary and effective asset we possess. In fact trying to succeed in life just using the most obvious tools in the box is why 80% of people will spend their entire life never having enough. Many people believe the erroneous programming that has been passed down from generation to generation. The fallacy that only through blood, sweat and tears is money earned. They explain away the wealthy as being corrupt, dishonest or unjustly lucky. Firstly, you should recognize that cultivating wealth in life is an opportunity open to all. Wealth is a skill set, which you can and should master. To succeed in this is your duty as a human being. You did not come here to live in scarcity. In this book I will show you how your current programming and western upbringing, have weakened your connection to the divine core of your being. I will reveal how you reactivate this link and attract abundance. You will make it a dance of your life, and by this you are opening the floodgates to riches, wealth, and prosperity in your daily life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Craig Beck.
