Work It Right! features a series of ideas and images to become more successful in your work, based on 60 posts that originally appeared on Instagram. These comments reflect the view that what you think shapes you and your experiences, so if you think about how to work smarter and enjoy your work more, these are comments like: ´´Work smart not hard. Then spark up your life with something exciting, so you are ready to work smart again”. The audiobook also suggests ways to incorporate these ideas into your life, such as by focusing on one or two thoughts a day, gazing at the image with each thought, and thinking about how you might apply that idea in your work. Another suggestion is to create a support group that meets once a week to go through the audiobook together.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

This provocative essay considers the historical background, meaning and effect of the Ninth Amendment, which states ´´the enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.´´ Patterson feels the amendment was ´´forgotten´´ because no real purpose has been found for it. He argues that the amendment would become valuable if it was construed to incorporate the doctrine of natural law, which he ranks above constitutional rights. Moreover, this doctrine should serve to restrict federal and state power.
Roma Aeterna (the main book of Pars II of the Lingua Latina per se illustrata series) introduces some of the most celebrated authors of Roman antiquity through the lens of Roman literature and mythology. A vivid description of the city´s monuments precedes a prose retelling of the first four books of Virgil´s Aeneid, with many of the most famous passages in their original verse form. The selection from Virgil is followed by Book One of Livy´s engaging mythical history of Rome´s foundation. The prose selections are judiciously chosen and, in the first few chapters, gently adapted to provide students with a text that is authentically Latin and yet not difficult. The unadapted selections, which make up the majority of the text, are taken from Aulus Gellius, Ovid, Nepos, Sallust, and Horace. These annotated selections make Roma Aeterna useful both as the next step after Familia Romana and as a survey of Latin literature in its own right. Roma Aeterna incorporates the following features: Latin immersion with vowel lengths marked Approximately 3,000 vocabulary words Short discussions of grammar and exercises for each chapter Selected readings that cover the material in a Roman history course Index of Roman rulers and of historical events arranged chronologically Now with full-color illustrations

In The Secret Life of Bees, the narrator´s voice is quite convincing as a 14-year-old girl. Sue Monk Kidd uses a straightforward style, adding small remnants of magical realism to incorporate the bees, as well as the strange string of events that brings Lily and Rosaleen to the Boatwright house. Using historical markers - like the Civil Rights Act - Kidd manages to keep the story grounded in real events, counterbalancing a few fantastic or eccentric elements, like the pink house and a non-traditional view on religion. The beginning of each chapter features a quotation from nonfiction works that deals with bees and beekeeping. They all serve similar purposes, but many of the quotes are only loosely related to beekeeping. This is a summary and analysis of the book and not the original book. 1. Language: English.
