The Third Door: The Wild Quest to Uncover How the World's Most Successful People Launched Their Careers
The Third Door: The Wild Quest to Uncover How the World's Most Successful People Launched Their Careers
Reading The Third Door changed my life. I really don’t know how to say it otherwise, and frankly struggle with words to describe how deeply the book has affected me since. As a college student myself, we are often fed generic pieces of advice as to how to obtain success and achieve the life of our dreams. “Don’t give up!” “Keep the faith” “Do what you love.” At times, the noise can become overwhelming, and more importantly, outdated!!!!!! In the age of the internet, so many things have changed! The Third Door tells the philosophies of both young and new entrepreneurs, from Bill Gates and Elliot Bisnow, about how they achieved ravishing success and what skills we can learn from their journeys.

Case in point: How do you separate yourself from thousands of other candidates applying online for a job? How do you gain mentors and find allies in business? How do you develop a network when you are just starting off and do not know anyone? How does one approach someone (either in person or online) and appear ambitious as opposed to simply unprofessional? How do you write a proper email? Is there a such thing as being over-persistent? If so, what is the line? How do you bounce back from rejection? Or create momentum for a project you are passionate about? What is the difference between a linear life and an exponential life? How can you create the latter? How do you "find your passion" or "follow your bliss?" Infiltrate echelons of business where you may be able to make an impact?

If the internet has produced a new wave of teachers, authors, and influencers, then Alex is the guru for us all - not just millennials, but ALL people seeking to achieve their dreams. The reason? What the Third Door provides more than anything is INFORMATION & ACCESS. Access to the personal anecdotes of some of the greatest leaders and innovators of our time, and sheer information - details about their path, past failures, practical (seriously practical) pieces of advice that anyone may apply in their own journey respective. These skills are transferrable no matter what you seek to do and will help you work smarter, not harder- giving you tools to achieve your wildest dream in a shorter span of time. In fact, it is a book you will need to read many times over to fully absorb its wisdom and one which I am so grateful to have found as early as I did. Thank you Alex for undertaking this journey to help us all succeed in greater and more meaningful ways. Your persistent emailing, crouching in bathrooms, chasing after some of the most brilliant people of our time is to have been well worth it.
Elon Musk.: The Little Black Book (Little Black Books)
Elon Musk.: The Little Black Book (Little Black Books)
142 Elon Musk quotes on a variety of topics including guidance for people considering starting their own company.

My favorite but was actually the second half of a quote about Rockets to Mars, "The American colonies would never have been pioneered if the ships that crossed the ocean hadn’t been reusable.”

This is less a book of inspirational quotes, and more a glimpse into the mind of a modern innovator.

Flying High: My Story: From AirAsia to QPR (Peng01 13 06 2019)
An interesting read an account of his life but don't think you are going to learn too much about business. The book is very short on detail particularly of how he started and kept going. One day Mr Fernandes is a corporate guy the next he has bought an airline! No idea where the money came from or how he managed to keep it coming in. Maybe it was inherited? No doubt he had a lot of fun along the way....but both the QPR and the F1 investments have been more about ROE (return on ego) than pure business.

300W Power Inverter DC 12V to 110V AC Car Charger Converter with 4.8A Dual USB Ports (Blue)
Bought this for son to charge his 120 watt laptop in the car, but it can't even

The fan is very quiet, the cord is nearly 3 feet long which is sufficient, seems to be sturdy construction, but it can't charge my particular laptop.

Update:
Manufacturer contacted me to find out what model computer I was trying to charge. They then purchased a computer just like it and did some testing on their own. Turns out this computer runs on 19 volt and not 12 volt.

I highly respect these guys for going through the trouble that they did in order to get to the bottom of my issue.
Great Customer Service!

So, in short, the problem was on my end. NOT the manufacturers!
This product DOES charge laptops, just not some of the more powerful ones like my sons.
I just didn't know any better, I was focused on wattage requirements and didn't understand the voltage requirements.

Hasbro - Rival Deadpool Kronos XVIII-500 Blasters (2-Pack) - Red And Black
This Rival Deadpool nerf guns are the worst. I purchased this item during April for my son's birthday on June (ahead of time-due to the pandemic delays). When he opened his $100 gift, it was defective, the guns are stuck, you can't load them or shoot with them. When I contacted San Marco Toys, twice, they never responded and amazon couldn't give me a refund because I ordered on April but opened the item on June 26, therefore I noticed the defective item on June 26, 3 months after the purchased. I understand amazon's excuse but I do not accept San Marco Toys ignoring my messages. I even have photos, that the guns are brand new in perfect condition, but they are defective from factory. My son never played with this "waste of money toy" and I never got my $100 for a toy that doesn't work. I will never ever buy from San Marco Toys and they have the worst customer service ever. First negative experience on amazon, and I've a amazon customer since they started selling books. Shame on Sam Marco Toys

I have been using this for a few weeks now and have noticed a considerable difference in the dark spots on my face. They are fading nicely and am so happy about it!! I don't have many lines but the ones I do have I believe will take longer to notice any change. I will continue to apply it on my face nightly. I have read that you can apply it with your foundation but I find that my foundation streaks when I apply them together so I will stick with my nightly routine and use my spf face lotion before applying my foundation.
Dragon Ball Super nº 01 (Manga Shonen) (Spanish Edition)
Dragon Ball Super nº 01 (Manga Shonen) (Spanish Edition)
Hay dos facetas claramente diferenciadas que comentar sobre este producto: la primera es la obra en sí, y la segunda es la edición.
En cuanto a la obra, si eres fan de Dragon Ball, es necesario e imprescindible que leas Dragon Ball Super. El manga, con guión de Toriyama y dibujos de Toyotaro está a mi juicio muy por encima del anime (como suele suceder). Me reconozco como un fan de toda la vida de la obra de Akira Toriyama, así que a estas alturas de la vida resulta sorprendente reconocer que el joven Toyotaro tiene un estilo de dibujo y una cinemática narrativa en muchos aspectos superiores a las del propio Toriyama. Aparte de eso, el argumento de la serie es muy bueno, y las sagas y personajes nuevas son altamente adictivas. Este primer tomo narra desde la aparición de Beerus hasta el inicio del torneo entre el 6º y 7º universo.

En cuanto a la edición, tengo que decir que esperaba algo más de Planeta, sobre todo viendo la calidad que tenía la edición de la serie roja de Super. Si bien la traducción es muy buena (como siempre), da la impresión de que lo han publicado con prisa. El papel deja que desear, las cubiertas me han decepcionado (de hecho, el único elemento en color es la sobrecubierta que trae el libro, incluso las portadas son en b/n), y el producto no ofrece ningún valor añadido con respecto a la edición seriada. En comparación con ediciones anteriores, su calidad está reñida con los tomos amarillos de Dragon Ball (que eran bastante lamentables), y a años luz en calidad por ejemplo de la serie blanca de tomos original o de Dragon Ball Ultimate, la de mejor calidad hasta ahora publicada por Planeta.

Está bien que editen estos productos, y los fans reales, que somos muchos, los vamos a seguir comprando. Pero se agradecería un esfuerzo por parte de la editorial por darnos un producto algo más decente.
La Princesa Caballero Volumen 1
La Princesa Caballero Volumen 1
La Princesa Caballero is the Spanish-language version of a 1967 Japanese cartoon. We had such a joyful time watching Volume 1, which my wife remembers watching in Mexico when she was a little girl. The main character is forced to lie about her gender. She is a girl who represents herself as a boy in order to protect her right to her parents' kingdom. Volume 1 includes her origin story, a fight for her life with a wolf, the rescue an underwater world and a family of tortoises, and an encounter with a shady puppeteer. The stories and the art have a lot to say about gender as performance.
The Rubber Band (A Nero Wolfe Mystery Book 3)
The Rubber Band (A Nero Wolfe Mystery Book 3)
Clara Fox is at the center of two mysteries: 1) one of her employers accuses her of stealing $30,000 of company monies and 2) she asks Wolfe to help find an associate of her deceased father and recover monies promised when he was a member of the Rubber Band.

The Rubber Band was a group of 6 men who, 40 years previously, helped an Englishman escape the law in Silver City, NV in return for possible rewards if he inherited a part of his family's wealth in the future. Time has passed. Clara has found two survivors of the band and the daughter of another. Together, the four have located the Englishman who is now a peer and extremely wealthy. They ask Wolfe to help them prevail upon the Englishman to fulfill his promise.

Before long, two men are murdered and the lives of two women, including Clara, are threatened. The two cases appear related and people are not what they seem.

This is an early Nero Wolfe, but it has all the classic ingredients. Wolfe stays in his office/home and directs Archie, his assistant, and a group of hourly wage PI's. He never misses a meal or his two daily sessions with his prize-winning orchids in the greenhouse on the roof. The police and district attorney come to his office to threaten and cajole. But Wolfe sits and thinks and solves the cases.

This is a great mystery (as are all Nero Wolfe mysteries). It is well constructed--events are carefully interwoven and characters are unique. It relies on interrogation, deduction, and intellectual prowess not DNA, forensic evidence and violence. You can follow along and see if you can find the killer.
Ladies & Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones- Deluxe Edition 3DVD Numbered Box Set
Ladies & Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones- Deluxe Edition 3DVD Numbered Box Set
First, the bad news:
So far as I know this is the only official release of any documentation of The Rolling Stones' 1972 U.S. tour which was by far the most excessive, over the top blow out of a tour attempted by anybody at the time.
For a tour so anticipated and (over?) hyped, it delivered on every level.
From the set list, heavy with "Exile" material, which in retrospect turns out to be a great choice, to the arrangements and band line up, this is the Stones at their peak, in my limited opinion.
Hot on the heels of "Exile On Main St." and three years since their last tour with Mick Taylor, this was the biggest event of the year.
The band, Mick, Keith, Bill, Charlie and Mick Taylor with Nicky Hopkins and Ian Stewart on piano, Jim Price on trumpet and trombone and Bobby Keys on sax, was sparse compared to the current incarnation, yet was perfect for the rather sparse arrangements at the time.
So, considering all of this, I wonder why there was so little documentation.
This tour would have been the perfect opportunity for a live album, which possibly could have equaled or bettered their stunning "Get Your Ya Yas Out."
Because the visual impact of the tour was so impressive part or all of many shows, more than four, at least, could have been filmed.
Then, the best performances from a variety of shows could have been represented.
As it is, four shows were filmed in Houston and Dallas, Texas and edited together with pretty good results.
I just think that more variety of input could have resulted in an overall better final result.
So, the bad news is, this is your only choice.
Now, the good news:
The situation has made up your mind for you.

Licorice in 1 KiloBag 2.2lb - Venco Salmiakrondo's (Black Round Shaped Semi Hard Black Licorice Filled with Salmiak)
Licorice in 1 KiloBag 2.2lb - Venco Salmiakrondo's (Black Round Shaped Semi Hard Black Licorice Filled with Salmiak)
So the positive first......this is a big bag. A lot of value for the money and it was received next day delivery. Super fast.

Now the negative....I previously bought a bag of Venco chalk licorice and loved it, so much so that I ate the whole bag in about 10 days. I decided to try these because I thought it would be the yummy licorice and the creamy filling of the chalk licorice without the white substance on the outside. IT WAS NOT. I don't even know how to describe this. It's just nasty tasting. The outer shell tastes a little like licorice and the inner "cream" (salmiak??) tastes like a salty something that I don't even have a description for it. Something fishy comes to mind. I know one of their ingredients is ammonium chloride so maybe that's it. I have read it's an acquired taste but after a handful, I may end up tossing them. Life is too short to eat yucky sweets. I've ordered another bag of chalk licorice and will stick with that.

Buen sabor, pero tiñe los dientes y no se quita con solo limpieza bucal en casa. Es un error abusar
