Principles: Life and Work
Principles: Life and Work
This book was fantastic and extremely organized. The author starts the book by giving the reader a background on who he is and how he arrived at the principles that were outlined. This part of the book is good for anyone that's not familiar with the author's backstory. It was somewhat astounding to learn that Mr. Dalio was literally broke in 1982 and has come-back to build a 150 billion dollar hedge fund.

In the second part of the book, the author gets into the stuff that's incredibly important, but difficult to implement. In short, he provides a roadmap and tools (via algorithmic means) to accomplish anything you want in life. There's a ton of substance, definition, & practicality on how to action your objectives. He has a five-step process to achieve what you want out of life, and it couldn't be more understandable and reasonable. The tricky part for most people (in my humble opinion) is finding a goal or objective that they can focus and remain passionate about for an extended period. If that's not your problem, then Mr. Dalio's advice in the second part of the book is significantly profound.

In the third section of the book, the author teaches you how to build the mastermind group/organization that's going to achieve the goals/mission you outlined in the second part of the book. The knowledge and thought that went into these 300 pages of the book are quite impressive. In short, the reader needs to get the culture right, get the people right, and then build and evolve the protocols that run the organization at a fundamental level. There's so much granularity behind those core concepts that it'll keep you busy trying to absorb everything.

In my humble opinion, MBA programs should be designing management courses around the information contained in this book. It's extremely thorough, practical, and organized.

Negatives. The book is a long read. If you're looking for something that's quick and easy, you're in the wrong place. The book is so organized (which I personally liked) that some might find it too programmatic. If you're looking for surprises and adventurous stories with your learning, you won't get that in the last two parts of the book. Dalio is all business.

In general, I'm so impressed the author took the time and effort to teach the world everything he has learned. You can tell he truly wants to help others be successful. The book has taught me the importance of trying to understand the fundamental building blocks of my own life. I now have an appreciation for trying to understand how things work and how I can model success habits around those principles. I've started to list my own principles, but it's hard identifying unique ideas beyond those found in the book (because it's so thorough). But the important part is that I'm aware of developing my own list and co-opting or creating new principles. This book has had a profound impact on me - it's definitely worth more than 5 stars.
Troublemakers: Silicon Valley's Coming of Age
Troublemakers: Silicon Valley's Coming of Age
Any casual reader whose knowledge about Silicon Valley comes from the headlines or the news online might get the impression that Steve Jobs and the Google and Facebook guys invented the place. Obviously, this is far from true. But even more serious coverage tends to focus on a handful of high-profile individuals who have played outsize roles in the development of the high-tech industry. Stanford historian Leslie Berlin sets the record straight with her engrossing new book, Troublemakers: Silicon Valley's Coming of Age. 

Troublemakers chronicles a critical period in the Valley's history (1969-76). Those seven years witnessed "the most significant and diverse burst of technological innovation of the past 150 years . . . Five major industries were born: personal computing, video games, advanced semiconductor logic, modern venture capital, and biotechnology."

"Innovation is a team sport," Berlin writes in the introduction to her book. She makes clear that her intention is to tell the stories of more than just the usual suspects. "Troublemakers . . . feature[s] some of the most famous names in Silicon Valley history, while also profiling seven other individuals in depth." More famous people such as Steve Jobs and Larry Page make brief appearances. Berlin's account highlights:

Bob Taylor, who led the creation of the rudimentary computer network at the Pentagon, in a sense "inventing" the Internet;
Mike Markkula, the man who made it possible for Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak to launch and build Apple;
Sandra Kurtzig, a software pioneer who was "the first woman to take a technology company public;"
Bob Swanson, a cofounder of Genentech;
Al Alcorn, who designed the video game Pong that launched the game giant Atari; and
Niels Riemer, the man who patented recombinant DNA for Stanford University, thus kickstarting the biotech industry.
Every one of these seven people could be the subject of their own biography. Berlin brings their stories to life through one-on-one interviews—all but Bob Swanson are still alive—while placing their accomplishments into the context of their time and place. As a professional historian specializing in this region—Berlin is Project Historian for the Silicon Valley Archives at Stanford University—she deftly meshes personal accounts by her subjects with extensive archival research.

To my mind, the most impressive of these seven individuals is Bob Taylor. As a key player at ARPA (the Pentagon's Advanced Research Projects Agency, now called DARPA) in the 1960s, he helped lay the foundation for the Internet. Later, in the 1970s, as the director of computer science research at Xerox's PARC (Palo Alto Research Center), he assembled what was widely considered the most talented group of computer scientists anywhere in the world—and possibly the most talented ever brought together anywhere. These extraordinary men (and a handful of women) created the Alto, the world's first personal computer with a graphic user interface (GUI), mouse, windows, and networking ability. It's astonishing to most observers that the Xerox Corporation failed to commercialize the Alto. Only years later did Apple's Macintosh begin to approach the capabilities of the Alto. (A former key player at PARC thought of the early Mac as a toy.)
Beyond Candlesticks: New Japanese Charting Techniques Revealed (Wiley Finance Book 56)
Beyond Candlesticks: New Japanese Charting Techniques Revealed (Wiley Finance Book 56)
Steve Nison's Candlestick books are essential reading for any trader and give a great overview of Candlestick trading patterns and how to apply them beyond the very basic "this is a doji: trade it." This book is accessible and easy to read for beginners, who should be able to delve into this and understand the concepts easily without further research / headbanging / frustration.
Autobiography of a Yogi (Self-Realization Fellowship)
Autobiography of a Yogi (Self-Realization Fellowship)
If you are on a spiritual path and meditation is of interest to you, drop every other book on meditation and read this one. While there are many modern good writers about the topic of meditation, few offer glimpses into states of bliss that are attainable. Yogananda tells us that bliss is achievable by everybody through techniques of concentration. The subjects were rare accounts of Hindu saints met personally by Yogananda. His description of his spiritual journeys, those of his master, his master's master and other Hindu spiritual prodigies will make you see life in a completely different manner. Even though you may not have had these spiritual experiences, to have a thorough account of their lives, their teachings, and their ecstatic experiences, is profound and are rare accounts seldom heard of. There is wisdom in every page. West meets East. Happiness is an inside job; it cannot be found externally. Here is Yogananda's summary of the Bengali "Joy-Permeated Mother": "Casting aside every inferior attachment, Ananda Moyi Ma offers her sole allegiance to the Lord. Not by the hair-splitting distinctions of scholars but by the sure logic of faith, the child-like saint has solved the only problem in human life--establishment of unity with God". Never have my eyes feasted on such beautiful prose about difficult to understand, rare experiences. I feel forever changed by the experience of reading this book, and I consider myself well-read. This book has become my new bible and will guide me forward in life. When Steve Jobs died, he had one book on his ipad, and this was it. George Harrison says without this book he wouldn't want to live. Now I know why.
The Contrarian's Guide to Leadership
The Contrarian's Guide to Leadership
I first heard about this book in Bill Hybels "Courageous Leadership." Hybels requires all of his leaders in his church to first read this book. Surprisingly this book is not based on Christian leadership. The main idea behind the book is that Sample takes ideas that are commonly thought of as a leaders best practices and show why leaders should do just the opposite. (Contrarian definition: a person who opposes or rejects popular opinion) I had no idea what a contrarian was before reading this book, but learned alot of valuable ideals.

This book really challenged me to think outside the box. As the title says, the topics covered in this book usually go against what everyone holds as a leaders best practices. In each chapter I had to think about what was being covered and why it made sense to go against the popular belief besides what Sample was simply writing about. I did not want to just take him at his word, but challenged myself to see why his points either made sense, or did not at all. I highly recommend this book to stretch your mind in leadership practices. Very early on in the book Sample challenges the reader to make a hypothetical decision that no-one ever would want to have to make, but it sets the tone for the book for getting the reader out of their current mold and challenging why they think that way.

This book also has alot of practical applications and is not just all theory and thought. I tend to learn through example and find it easier to connect with a book that has practical implications rather than be just about theory. This book has a good mix and Sample makes sure to have practicality in all of his chapters and topics.

Some of my favorite quotes from the book:
"... the leader's role is to be sufficiently broad so as to be able to integrate the advice of several experts into a coherent course of action."
- Showed me that a leader does not have to be the know-all in all particular fields that they observe, that is what the experts are for. The leader just needs to have experts in specific areas that they trust and have the ability to gather all the information and formulate an appropriate plan.

"..., an effective leader must sell himself first and his vision or policies second."
- A leader must have followers, if not they are not a leader. If a leader does not first sell themselves and show others why they should follow, then the leader has no chance of getting people on board to follow their vision. So when being a leader you need to make sure those you lead trust you as a person before they trust your vision.

"If you leave a white post alone it will soon be a black post. If you particularly want it to be white you must be always painting it again." (Quote from G.K. Chesterton)
- A simple thought but can be applied to alot of places in life. As with leadership and inspiring others to a vision, eventually excitement will wane. Thus everything will take continued work. You are either improving or degrading, no staying the same.
Messy: The Power of Disorder to Transform Our Lives
Messy: The Power of Disorder to Transform Our Lives
I can’t resist a new Tim Harford book. I’ve learned a lot from each of his other books, and I’ve enjoyed reading every one of them. I like his writing style, and because his voice is so familiar (he has a show on BBC4) I often hear him speaking when I read his words. It’s pretty nifty. So it was with great anticipation that I pre-ordered Messy and started reading it.

Then Harford played a trick on me - he made me uncomfortable. I like for things to be organized. So there’s a certain amount of clutter I always seem to need to clear away to get down to the work I want to do. Time and again in Messy, I was told that I would be more creative and successful if I let go of the need to organize and basically did the thing I most wanted to do while having a few other projects in the background. Harford showed me how I was doing unnecessary things as a way to avoid doing what was really important. That is not what I wanted to hear from The Undercover Economist. He’s usually much more supportive of my behavior. “Let it go” is not what I expected to hear from him. Honestly, I was thinking about writing a letter of protest.

But by "Chapter 4: Improvisation” I was a convert. There’s a section in Chapter 4 about not stifling the creatives. Apparently, I don’t need a cube farm dictator to stifle me. I’ve been stifling myself. In short, I had a come to Jesus moment with myself, and after reading Chapter 4, I started tearing up lists I’d been making about how I was going to structure my life and my time after I quit my full-time job to work to make a life for myself that is more creative and rewarding. Somehow, after just 4 chapters that included such disparate information as Brian Eno’s randomization card deck, examples of team harmony versus goal harmony, completely ridiculous workplaces set-ups, and a section about how to talk with dementia patients, I was a convert to messiness.

I hope this all works out or at least that The Undercover Economist can, at some point, help me put my life back together if that becomes necessary.

Henry and Edsel: The Creation of the Ford Empire
Henry and Edsel: The Creation of the Ford Empire
A great read. Learned some things I didn't know about Henry and Edsel Ford; some good, some not so good. As a native of Dearborn, Michigan, I grew up around the Ford empire. My Father was an employee at Ford, beginning his career at the Rouge and ending it some 40 years later at the Louisville, KY truck plant. Some of the stories he told are told again in this book, which validates the fact that my old man knew what he was talking about!
The book is, in my opinion, an accurate history of the period of time it covers. It confirmed other books I've read on the subject, which was why I purchased this book in the first place. I would recommend it to anyone who might be interested in the early history of the Ford Motor Company and the people who made it what it was ... and is today.
The 4 Complete Ed Sullivan Shows Starring The Beatles (2-DVDs)
The 4 Complete Ed Sullivan Shows Starring The Beatles (2-DVDs)
A rare and truly fascinating slice of classic 60s American TV. I bought these shows mainly for The Beatles and they do not disappoint. Most intriguing to hear so many screaming girls in the audience clearly infatuated by the Fab Four in their youthful, energetic prime - love it! Yes all part of 'the British invasion'. I wonder if any of the Beatles have watched this release themselves? It is pleasing to know that half of them are still with us, God bless them. This solid slice of the sixties, and the Fab Four is worth re-watching to rekindle unique and happy 60s memories and atmospheres which, I fear, may never be repeated. These shows must have originally been mastered on NTSC format VT but the restoration and conversion to PAL is impressive. Watch out too for the moment when John appears to have problems with his mic and has to share a mic with Paul with a rather sheepish smile - but you'll have to be observant as, professional as they were (and are), the Beatles covered it up well. Live moments like this are classic! Recorded shows are too rehearsed, too 'smug' ("professional" I am sure the broadcasters would argue, but they'd be missing the point). Perhaps we should have more live television in the UK!
Why four stars? Good question! These are good shows, very good even, but outstanding? I'm not too sure. But buy the DVD - if you're a Beatles fan you won't be disappointed. Also included in one of the shows is an incredibly young looking Cilla Black - probably before she had the nose job. Just like travelling back in time...

The Times They Are a-Changin'
The Times They Are a-Changin'
Back in the summer of '63 or '64, I brought this home from the music department of the department store I worked in part-time, and I felt like a dangerous communist radical race-mixing threat to my country. Quite a heady feeling for a New Jersey boy just discovering who Woody Guthrie was. I loved it. I had seen Bob on the Steve Allen late night television show performing "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll." I was just beginning to side with civil rights protestors against my own Caucasian elite, and this album pushed me quite a bit further in that direction. Now, so many years later, I am still a moderate Democrat with a fondness for folk and protest music, and while I have liked a few of Bob's rock CD's,. especially the early ones, it is his first three recordings and a live bootleg concert record from about 1965 that I want to own. I have paid him little mind the past 30 years. There are some dated songs on here, and several that are not "protest" per se, but Dylan in the early '60's, trying to look, act and sing like Guthrie of the early '40's, was really different, and perceived as a bit threatening even. If you like Bob as a rock and roller, don't skip this, his last full record of folk and protest anthems. He stayed famous because he switched to electric rock, but he got famous with his second record, "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" and this one. And his debut, "Bob Dylan" with traditional songs on it, is also fantastic and does not get dated.
The Best of Bob Dylan Chord Songbook
The Best of Bob Dylan Chord Songbook
This is an excellent book in every respect: the chords are appropriate to each song - not something that you always get, all the verses are shown and you can therefore choose to play/sing them all or not. I admit to a tendency to use Byrd's variants at times e.g. Chimes of Freedom, All I Really Want to Do, Mr Tambourine Man. But then it can be fun to actually bash the whole song out as with one of my favourites Positively 4th Street, which needs all the verses to get Bob's full sarcasm and disdain towards the person concerned.

Some songs e.g. All Along The Watchtower have deceptively few chords but need a bit of practice with strumming - something that is not helped with here but is down to personal choice. I say that because Bob himself performs different versions of his own songs form one gig to another, by all accounts.

The capo positions are helpful and so are the slight tuning changes. At first the book, being the size it is does not easily stay open at a page but persevere and keep practising and the book will stay open. The fact that some songs are over more than 2 pages just adds to the incentive to learn the verses!

And you can appreciate again the amazing storytelling and. I heartily recommend this book as a never ending source of enjoyment and insight into Bob's songs. It is also amazing value for money.
Samsung Galaxy A51 (SM-A515F/DS) Dual SIM 128GB, GSM Unlocked - Prism Crush Black
Samsung Galaxy A51 (SM-A515F/DS) Dual SIM 128GB, GSM Unlocked - Prism Crush Black
I purchased the 128GB with 4GB ram model in all black. My wife's S8+ that was close to becoming non-functional and I needed a new phone asap. I had previously purchased an A20s for my son and so I first ordered the A30s until I did some research regarding my mobile provider T-Mobile in the US.

I cancelled the A30s and got the A51 primarily because of the supported LTE bands. T-Mobile uses the following bands
2, 4, 5, 12, 66, 71
The A30s only supports band 5 from the that list!
However, the A51 supports band 2, 4, 5, 12 and 66. I was gladly willing to pay a little more to ensure I had maximum connectivity with my carrier so I cancelled the A30s and purchased the A51 instead.

Now with that primary consideration out of the way, on to the rest of the review. I'll start with the best parts first.

1. Call quality, reception and connectivity
The call quality is excellent on this phone, right up there with my s10+. I think the microphone quality has been improved because my wife loves using the speakerphone and on her hold s8+, her voice occasionally cut out here and there as the mic tried to pick up her voice. Also, the sound quality of the voice has improved as well which further helps to understand the conversation. Reception has been about the same compared to my s10+, which is to say pretty good. We measured on signel strength and asu. The mobile data speeds are excellent even in areas that are typically weaker in signal strength.

2. Screen
Samsung AMOLEDs are the best in the business when it comes to screen quality. We are a little relieved the screen is not curved because this allows us to get a robust case to protect everything. The colors, quality and resolution are all indistuingishable compared to my s10+. The front camera is a tiny pinhole so the entire body is pretty much all screen. There is an in-screen fingerprint reader which is optical, rather than infrasonic on my s10+ but it is still reasonably fast to unlock the phone. Yes it is slightly slower than my s10+ but we're talking milliseconds of difference.

3. General usability
My wife is not a gamer so I can't say anything about the gaming experience but she does use a ton of media and productivity apps. For all of her use on them so far, she says they feel snappy. They all open fast and transition well and she multitasks as much as before without a shred of difference. When we first setup the phone, we were concerned because there was some UI lag but realized a lot of processing was being used during the Samsung Switch, which transfered her entire old phone to the new phone. Once the switch was done, we rebooted and the phone was responsive and fast.

4. Camera
The camera hardware has some beefy specs. But for a mostly point-and-shooter, it's hard to really go wrong many camera setups. Picture quality looks great in the light and not as good in the dark compared to my s10+. The slower camera speed is noticeable, transitioning between the main camera/wide/macro takes about a half second, where on my s10+ is pretty much instant. The shutter is just as fast, luckily. If camera speeds are important to you, you would probably not be happy with this phone.

5. Battery
I have to admit, we were looking forward to getting more usable time out of the battery. The battery is 4000mah unit and the s8+ was only 3500mah. However, through the typical daily use, we found that the end-of-day percentage left were about the same. We average about 4 hours of on-screen time scattered throughout the day with app use and web-browsing and the battery was around 40% left, which is the same as the s8+. If long battery life is important to you, you would not be happy with this phone but keep in mind, it can easily last an entire busy day on a single charge.

Overall, we like the phone for the price of under $300.
Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet Book 1
Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet Book 1
With the new Black Panther movie looking astonishingly good from its trailers, a timely Amazon sale sent some of the recent comics starring the King of Wakanda tumbling my way.
Well, I suppose from 2016, so not the most recent - but the run by Ta-Nehisi Coates has been raved about by fellow fans of T'Challa so it was about time I took a look.
I've long been a fan of Black Panther - I tend to gravitate towards heroes who aren't mighty gods or universe-menacing Phoenixes - and so the combination of genius scientist and stealthy warrior has long appealed.
I'll confess, though, that I'm awfully glad that I bought book two at the same time as book one. Coates takes his time to find his feet with his story - or rather, more to the point, he has a big story to tell but sometimes in volume one rushes through the actual telling, and you end up piecing a couple of the parts of the tale together in your head rather than reading it on the page. He's much more in his stride by the second volume, so if you find yourself put off a little by the opening collection, stick with it, it comes together much better as the issues go by.
The story itself tackles the tale of Black Panther as king, fighting to hold together his kingdom from threats within and without. He isn't all-seeing or all-wise, rather he's a man underneath the legend, making political choices that might not always be for the best, but are mostly made with the best intentions.
The tale tackles issues of nationalism, identity, monarchism and democracy - weighty matters that go beyond the usual supervillain hokum of many comics. Sometimes, that strays into territory of infodumping, but as I say, the method of telling the story keeps improving.
I'm not terribly sure it will serve as a great introduction to readers for the Black Panther movie - but it's a powerful look at the world the comics character inhabits - with a wider landscape than his stories are often afforded.
CBS Evening News Season 2020
CBS Evening News Season 2020
I subscribed because I stopped receiving the CBS channel in my location because of the FCC "repack" of Over The Air TV stations. In particular I wanted to be able to continue watching the CBS Evening News. First of all I would have expected the "Watch Now" button to take me to the latest episode. Instead, I discover only by accident that if I scroll way down... a long list of episodes shows up, and I have to scroll, scroll, scroll to get to the latest. But, even worse, even 2 hours since it was broadcast here on the west coast, and thus 5 hours since it was broadcast on east coast, the "latest" episode is yesterday's news. I don't know anybody who goes to a news publisher, whether newspaper, web, or TV station, to get yesterday's news.
Phooey.
New Star Foodservice 50943 Seamless Aluminum Pizza Screen, Commercial Grade, 10-Inch, Pack of 6
New Star Foodservice 50943 Seamless Aluminum Pizza Screen, Commercial Grade, 10-Inch, Pack of 6
My daughter and I love making 6" - 8" homemade personal pan pizzas using homemade dough, but weren't happy with the middle of our pizzas sometimes staying doughy or undercooked. Most people use a traditional pizza stone for this, since residential ovens do not get hot enough like a commercial pizza oven would. However, both our pizzas would not fit on a stone and our oven is not big enough for two stones (we like to watch movies on pizza night and need them to be done at the same time). Enter the pizza screen.... not only are they super affordable, sturdy, and well made, but we have perfect crispy crusts every time. Sometimes I will pre-bake the dough for 5 mins at 450*F before adding toppings for even more crunch, but it's not really necessary. The screens are fairly easy to clean. Once in awhile cheese will drip onto the metal mesh and burn/harden. If that happens, I'll pour a bit of full-strength dish soap on the spots and let them sit in the sink for about a half hour, and it usually comes right off without having to scrub. They are aluminum, so if you put them in your dishwasher they will slightly discolor with time, but it doesn't affect their use. Also, they include the outer rim as part of the overall measurement, so make sure you get them a little bigger to accomodate the size pizzas you are making. (Its hard getting them out of the oven without an edge to grab onto with the potholder. We don't have a pizza paddle.) If you like making small personal pizzas or just need a crispier crust, give these a try.
Dan, the Newsboy
Dan, the Newsboy
This is the first book I have read by this author, but going by the reviews he is very popular. Like so many books I buy, I came across this one by chance and it intrigued me. I read the sample and hit the “one-click” (soo easy).

Dan’s father was a wealthy businessman with a beautiful home and a wife who had everything she needed. Dan attended a private school and was receiving a fine education, when the bottom fell out of their world. Mr Mordaunt’s book-keeper absconded with the firm’s money leaving the family in dire circumstances. Several months later Dan’s father died leaving his wife and fifteen year-old Dan scraping a living while living in tenement housing and shunned by all their former “friends”. Dan has a gift for making new friends who help him in various ways, and he soon discovers that he is a pretty good thief catcher. A businessman, Mr Rogers, happens upon one of the incidents and gives Dan his card with instructions to call on him the following day, which he does, and is astonished to find himself employed as a detective to discover who is misappropriating funds. A couple of other things happen before this, but I will leave those for readers to discover.

Dan foils an attempted burglary at Mr Roger’s company and is appropriately rewarded and given some very sound advice. There is at least one more adventure for Dan before the conclusion of the story. I did find Dan just a bit too good to be true for a fifteen-year old boy, and while he did make the most of the opportunities he was given, he would probably have not bettered his lot and that of his mother without all the help he was given.

Never having heard of Horatio Alger, I looked him up and it seems his books are aimed at a YA audience and carry a standard plot-line with a few variations; boy in difficult circumstances makes good. The writing is good, although sentimental and has a moralistic tone which was very popular at the time (1884). I am not too sure I could read several books that are just variations on the same theme, but I did enjoy this one
Les yeux des ténèbres : le thriller qui avait prédit l'épidémie mondiale (French Edition)
Les yeux des ténèbres : le thriller qui avait prédit l'épidémie mondiale (French Edition)
Je vais essayer de ne pas dévoiler l'intrigue dans ma description, mais je dois avouer qu'il n'y a pas grande intrigue à préserver. Premièrement, le titre "le thriller qui avait prédit l'épidémie mondiale" n'est qu'une ruse marketing pour mousser les ventes. Ne lisez pas ce livre si le thème de l'épidémie est ce qui vous attire principalement dans le titre. La proportion du livre réellement en lien avec ce thème est minime. Autrement, c'est un roman très moyen et qui m'a grandement déçu, venant d'un maître acclamé du suspense. Les personnages sont relativement bien développés, mais l'intrigue est purement linéaire, sans aucun renversement ou surprise et avec très peu de mystère (et ce mystère est très répétitif jusqu'à la fin). Dans la première partie du livre, les personnages ont au moins le mérite de surmonter les obstacles qui se dressent sur leur chemin par leurs propres volonté et aptitudes, alors que lors de la deuxième moitié, tous les obstacles se résolvent facilement par la même voie surnaturelle répétitive, sans pratiquement aucun effort de la part des personnages, sans réel péril, et ce, jusqu'à la scène finale. On s'attend à un affrontement ultime, pour lequel on nous prépare longuement, mais celui-ci ne fait que s'ajouter à la longue liste d'obstacles caduques qui se résolvent immédiatement d'un coup de baguette magique, sans plus de cérémonie. Je n'ai pas lu beaucoup de Dean Koontz, mais je dois dire que ce n'est pas le livre qui va me donner le goût d'en lire plus.

Step on a Crack (Michael Bennett, Book 1)
Step on a Crack (Michael Bennett, Book 1)
The first of the series pertaining to top Nypd detective Michael Bennett. I had read Tick Tock prior to this and found out whilst reading the inner book cover that it was the latest in a series featuring Bennett. I'm so glad i took a chance with purchasing my first Patterson novel 'Toys' as this guy is now in my list of top fave authors. I wonder in amazement how this guy can bang out as many books as he does and they are all so freakin good? Step On A Crack is no different as i was on the edge of my seat throughout this very intriguing page turner. Top Nypd detective Michael Bennett is introduced here along with his ailing wife Maeve who is hospitalized due to termanal cancer and their 10 adopted children from various nationalities. The Christmas hilidays are here and as all the citizens of N.Y. rush home with their gifts and prepare for their indivdual festivities, the Bennetts are struggling to keep happy faces as their mother is in hospital with not very much time to live. Michael whilst dealing with this personal trauma gets pulled into a hijacking/hostage scenerio as some very bad individuals during the first lady's funeral take over St Patrick's Cathedral that is packed with the whose who of the weathiest of people from all forms of employment. Actors, politicians and various other wealthy individuals. We watch as Bennett who has been name the chief negotiator to this case can balance all this and his home life without blowing everything.
A great page turner that i accomplished in no less then 3 days as i usually do with all of Patterson's reads. Even though his works are immense i am now working my way rapidly through the collection and cannot wait till the next read
The Berenstain Bears and the Trouble with Grownups
The Berenstain Bears and the Trouble with Grownups
The Berenstain Bears have always been a favourite in our house, in large part because we find it very easy to relate to most the stories. This book is part of the Berenstains "First Time Books" series in which the bears take a humorous look at everyday problems most children ( and sometimes grownups too) face.This particular series is meant to be read aloud by parents, rather then read by emergent readers though, so you will find the print smaller, and many of the words more complex as compared to their Beginner books series.

"The Berenstain Bears and the Trouble With Grownups" begins, like all of their books with peaceful scene of lovely tree house on a quiet dirt lane. But appearances can be deceiving, and inside the tree house is anything but peaceful and quiet. It seems to be one of those days when the cubs have their parents completely wound up, and everything seems to go wrong. To top it all off, there is the school Parent Night and Talent show to get ready for - and the week old notices both cubs had forgotten to show their parents.

Brother and Sister discussed the events with their friends Lizzy and Fred on the school bus the next day. While they all agreed their parents loved them, grownups can be quite a challenge at times. Later that day brother had a grand idea for the school talent show - they would put on a play "The Trouble With Grownups".

I won't go into any detail on the play itself, I don't want to spoil fun of reading this, but I doubt many parents will be able to read this and not see a bit of themselves at least. I think it's good to take a look at how we appear to our children. The play is huge success, with the whole audience laughing themselves silly. We ahd a great laugh as well. But there are two sides to every story, and the parents get a chance to turn the tables and show the children their point of view before the story ends as well. My sons ( age 2&6) loved this book, and I quite enjoyed it myself. I think the children may have learned something from the story - but I know I did. I'm glad I had a chance to look at things through a child's eyes again.
The Hobbit Vol. 2 of 2 (Japanese Edition)
The Hobbit Vol. 2 of 2 (Japanese Edition)
作者は近代ファンタジーの父である。伝承の中でのみ生きていたドワーフやエルフの世界を現代的な物語として作り上げて見せた。
いわばジャンルの創始者だ。ミステリにおけるポー、SFにおけるヴェルヌとウェルズのような重要人物と言えるだろう。

上下合わせてのレビューです。

二冊をあっという間に読んだ。読みやすく、がっつりと内容がある。
ホビットのビルボは、魔法使いガンダルフの依頼で十三人のドワーフとともに宝を奪回する旅に出る。
人物描写がしっかりしているのに驚く。
童話めいた話というのは善悪がはっきり分かれていて、愚者と賢者・臆病者と勇者のように役割が決まっていることが多い。
本作はちがう。主流文学の一級品のように、あるいは現実のように、人物に多面性があるのだ。
主役のビルボは引きこもるのが好きなオッサンだが、旅や冒険にあこがれる一面もある。
ドワーフたちは、使命感を持つ集団とはとても言えない。食い意地が張っていて、すぐにブーたれる。
が、いざというときは頼りになる側面もある。確かにこういうものだろう。
上巻ではトロルや大蜘蛛との闘い、水棲人ゴクリとの謎々遊びなどがスリリングで印象深い。
下巻もエルフ城からの脱出やドラゴンとの闘いなど見せ場には事欠かない。
が、何といっても最高に盛り上がるのは終盤の戦争だ。起伏が激しく、様々なアイデアが詰め込まれていて夢中で読んだ。

人間も亜人も依怙地で利己主義者という容赦のなさが、昔の児童文学とは一線を画すところだ。
さすがジャンル開拓者の力量である。不満を言えば、「ここでもうひと捻りほしかった」という場面が何か所かあるところ。
たとえばドラゴン退治の下りなどは、あっさりしすぎているような。

それを考慮しても、傑作には違いない。
感心にダメ押ししてくれたのが、主人公の帰郷を迎えるホビットたちの態度だ。苦い納得は大人の味か。

Es una excelente novela que mantiene la atención del lector por el suspenso que imprime a lo largo de la obra. Los personajes están estupendamente logrados. La mayor Flick , personaje central, es una mujer menuda, con carácter e inteligencia para comandar un grupo de cinco mujeres dotadas de personalidades de lo más disímbolas, logradas de manera inteligente por el autor , logrando un grado mayor de interés en el desarrollo de la trama de lo mejor que he leído de Follet del que soy fiel lectora
Hot Zone: A Suspenseful Story in Wild Wyoming (Ballistic Cowboys Book 1713)
Hot Zone: A Suspenseful Story in Wild Wyoming (Ballistic Cowboys Book 1713)
I'm really trying to like this series, but every book is the same. The heroine needs a bodyguard and the hero is an elite military soldier on loan to Homeland Security in a small town to find suspected terrorists.

Trace "Hawkeye" Walsh is the soldier in this book. While out at the site of the murder in the last book, he comes across someone he needs to look into further. A chase on four-wheelers ensues.

Olivia Dawson returns home to bury her father, supposedly who died from an accident. Considering her father was an excellent horseman, she can't believe his falling off a horse and dying is really what happened. While talking about it with the ranch foreman, they're in an accident when a four-wheeler comes out of no where and they hit a tree to avert a crash with it.

Hawkeye rescues Olivia and her foreman from the crashed ranch truck. OF course Olivia suspects he's the reason for the crash when she sees the four-wheeler. Yet, when she's with law enforcement, she doesn't bring up these suspicions? If someone runs you off the road, wouldn't you report it? Guess not. Hawkeye figures out why she's angry with him and finally tells her he was chasing the four-wheeler that ran them off the road. Lo and behold, Olivia now needs a bodyguard. Lo and behold, of all the soldiers loaned out to this temporary assignment, Hawkeye is the only one around to do it.

This book also has characters hard to keep up with. Olivia refers to him as Hawkeye, a problem I've had with the entire series. The women in their lives should not be calling them by their military nicknames. It indicates a lack of intimacy to me.

He rescues her one final time, but doesn't really lead the series story anywhere. With one final book in the series to go, looping in all these characters is going to be a challenge.

I'm hopeful Elle James can bring to closure all these couples at the end of the final book. Each ending seemed all over the place. Soldiers determined to return to their units seems conflicted.

I wasn't expecting realism in this book since the first two didn't. Looks like it will all rest on the shoulders of "T-Rex" in the final book to close this out.

EXCERPT: Picture the scene. You're at an isolated farm in the middle of the Welsh countryside. You know a young woman has been taken there by men who are going to rape and kill her. You're certain you know who these men are. You're also certain that they've killed women like this before a number of times, and yet you have no real evidence against them.

In one of the farm's outhouses you discover huge vats of acid that will be used to dissolve her body when they've finished with her, just as they've dissolved the bodies of others. You investigate further and discover a windowless cellar with occult signs on the walls that you've seen at other crime scenes associated with these men.

Like a modern day night in shining armour, you rescue the young woman in a blaze of glory, arrest the perpetrators, and now, thanks to your detective work and personal bravery, you have enough evidence to put them away for mass murder for the rest of their miserable lives.

End of story.

Except, of course, that wasn't how it happened.

THE BLURB: A house deep in the countryside where the remains of seven unidentified women have just been discovered.

A cop ready to risk everything in the hunt for their killers.

A man who has seen the murders and is now on the run in fear of his life.

So begins the race to track down this witness before the killers do.

For Ray Mason and PI Tina Boyd, the road ahead is a dangerous one, with bodies and betrayal at every turn…

MY THOUGHTS: This is a crime thriller. It contains a lot of shooting. And fighting. Action man stuff. Not usually my forte. I usually prefer something a little more subtle. But I couldn't have not finished Simon Kernick's The Hanged Man had you paid me.

However, I do recommend that you read #1 in the series, Bone Field, before you embark on The Hanged Man. It will answer a lot of questions, fill in the blanks. I didn't. I am reading them in the wrong order, but read Bone Field I must.

Thank you Mr Kernick for an unexpectedly good read. I am sure that my husband will enjoy it immensely. After he has read Bone Field.

Thank you to Random House UK, Cornerstone via Netgalley for providing a digital copy of The Hanged Man by Simon Kernick for review. All opinions expressed in this review are personal and entirely my own.
Silver Blaze
Silver Blaze
There are fans who consider Arthur Wontner to be the best Sherlock Holmes. I do like his portrayal better than that of Basil Rathbone, but I believe that Jeremy Britt is the best Holmes to date. Ian Fleming reflects a more accurate image of Conan Doyle's Dr. Watson in the Wontner movies than does Nigel Bruce in the Rathbone movies. I have never seen a Wontner Holmes movie with a clear picture and Silver Blaze is no exception. The picture and sound of this streamed movie are merely acceptable. The movie also jumps in places. All of this undoubtedly limits the number of Wontner fans.
Silver Blaze returns Holmes and Watson to the environs of Baskerville Hall. This time the only hound is the one who does not bark in the night. The plot, acting and directing are fine. The story is fun and believable until Holmes arrives at the race track where things go downhill a bit. In my opinion, Holmes was very negligent in his handling of things from this point on. What should have been a great movie is not. I am a fan of Holmes and Wontner so I still enjoyed the movie.

Ich bin ein totaler Kay Scarpetta Fan, aber dieses Buch ist ein totaler Griff ins Klo. Ich musste mich echt da durch quälen. Spannung gleich null, bis auf die letzten 20 Seiten ist es mist. Es passiert nix,gar nix. Kein Vergleich zu den vorherigen Büchern. Echt Schade. Wer Einschlafprobleme hat und keine Tabletten nehmen möchte ist hier genau richtig, ohne Nebenwirkungen.
Kevin and Perry Go Large
Kevin and Perry Go Large
For such a small investment 'Kevin & Perry Go Large' is worth every penny. Both Harry Enfield and Kathy Burke portray two mixed up hormonal youths with hilarious perfection as they try to come to terms with their newly discovered puberty - and parents who simply `don't understand them!!' The clever part is that people of all ages and gender will identify with their youthful dilemma creating personal memories both cringing and very funny.

The lads manage to get to Ibiza Spain, their plan to become top DJ's. like the resident cranky DJ. `Eye Ball Paul' played by Rhys Ifans. It's there that the boys fall in love with two air head girls, Candice, played by Laura Fraser and Gemma, played by Tabitha Wady. Both provide magnificent supporting roles adding further to the boys frustrations and giving us further reminders of the `tragedies of youth' Priceless!

Most of the action takes place in Ibiza, Spain. And if you like top quality Rave this DVD has it all; played and performed at the night club Amnesia. Brilliant!

Amo la saga de Harry Potter desde que tengo 5 años y publicaron el primer libro en español, este libro, es decir, Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal, fue el primer libro de mayores (dada mi edad de entonces) que me regalaron y fue mi abuelo, que murió un año después, gracias a este libro aprendí a leer muy bien porque no quería leer otra otro libro.......antes leyendo libros de Disney, ademas de ver las pelis, había creído en la magia, pero ver esa magia desde otra perspectiva como en Harry Potter, fue algo muy especial para mi, porque me hizo ver que la magia esta en nosotros más que nunca y ahora de adulta entiendo mejor, que tanto en nuestra imaginación como en la vida real, esa magia existe, porquenosotros la creamos cada dia, con nuestro trabajo, nuestros valoresm nuestra forma de ver y vivir la vida......la magia es, lo que nosotros somos!!

Tengo muy claro, que el hecho de que Harry Potter y Disney hayan formado parte de mi vida desde mi niñez, han contribuido en que hoy sea la mujer que soy y digo bien alto, con mis 25 años recién cumplidos, que creo y creeré para siempre en la magia, no importa como la vida me la haga llegar, siempre daré lo mejor de mi!!

Gracias de corazón J.K Rowling y Walt Disney por hacer de mis 25 años de vida una gran aventura y por enseñarme tanto!!!

I've tried several DC soaps including these. So much potential but, unfortunately, they fall way short. The scents range from very good to outstanding out of the box but they're not the same after the first use and after the second they're barely a memory. Then you're stuck with these giant, unwieldy bricks reminding you every day that you fell for a gimmick. Very cool concept. Great packaging. Wanted so much to like them that I even tried their WWII line hoping it would perform better than the nature line but no dice. Then tried the body wash- scents didn't translate. Done with this company unless they switch to cologne or incense.
Metaltex Mould with Stand, Cube, Brown/Violet
Metaltex Mould with Stand, Cube, Brown/Violet
Die Pralinenformen sind nicht würfelförmig sondern ein flacher Quader mit einer Einbuchtung auf der Unterseite; etwa halb so hoch wie breit/tief - habe es kurz gemessen und es sind in etwa 28 x 28 x 16 mm (bzw. 13 mm Höhe am Maximum der Einbuchtung). Es ergibt also höchstens einen Würfel wenn man zwei davon aufeinanderstapelt...

Keine Ahnung ob das Produkt ansonsten etwas taugt, für mich ist es leider durch die Form absolut ungeeignet. Die schlechte Bewertung gebe ich also hauptsächlich für die Artikelbeschreibung, da im Text als Abmessung nur "Würfelförmig" steht und aus den Bildern auch nicht ersichtlich wie es wirklich geformt ist. Verarbeitung sieht aber soweit OK aus, deswegen zwei Sterne.

Brother DS-640 Compact Mobile Document Scanner, (Model: DS640)
Compré este escáner hace casi dos meses por dos razones: la primera es que a veces veo clientes fuera de mi oficina y necesito copia de algunos documentos, y la segunda es que cuando trabajó desde casa y quiero escanear documentos tamaño oficio, no puedo porque el escáner que tengo es de cama plana y solo tamaño carta (es el del multifuncional).

Lo conecto a la MacBook Air que traigo para todos lados y funciona perfecto. Ahora ya no uso el escáner del multifuncional pues tendría que prenderlo, esperar a que se conecte a la red (es inalámbrico) y si estoy en otra habitación, ir al estudio, poner la hoja, etc.

Lo guardo en mi mochila junto con la computadora así que siempre está a la mano.

Yo solo lo uso para digitalizar documentos y la mayoría son texto o combinación de texto y fotos pero no necesito que sean a color por lo que los guardo en PDF en blanco y negro o a lo mucho en escala de grises. A veces necesito escanear escrituras de propiedad o contratos de 80 hojas tamaño oficio y lo he hecho sin ningún problema y bastante rápido considerando que estoy en un café o en casa. Tiene un mecanismo que "agarra" el borde de la hoja cuando la acercas al alimentador y cuando presionas el botón de "escanear" la hoja pasa derecha. Nunca ha arrugado una hoja, nunca se ha atorado ni ha fallado.

Supongo que no es la mejor opción para escanear fotos o imágenes a color en alta resolución pues para esos casos nada funciona tan bien como un escáner de cama plana pero para documentos, recibos, etc. este escáner hace excelente trabajo.

La principal ventaja comparado con otros de precio similar, es que se "abre" para limpiar él vidrio que protege a la lámpara (que es la que escanea) y limpiar los rodillos y el espacio por donde pasa la hoja. De esta forma te aseguras que va a funcionar bien todo el tiempo.

Hay una opción de la misma marca y un poco más cara que escanea por los dos lados de la hoja. Yo preferí este modelo porque no tengo tantos documentos de 2 caras y no me importa tardarme un poco en lo que son de 2 caras, además este es mas chico y pesa menos. Hay opciones con alimentador automático y otras prestaciones pero yo creo que si la necesidad de escanear es tanta, mejor invertir en un escáner profesional de cama plana con alimentador etc.

Este modelo hace una cosa y la hace muy bien, fácil y sin problemas.

CleverMade 32L Collapsible Storage Bins - Durable Plastic Folding Utility Crates, Solid Wall Stackable Containers for Home & Garage Organization, Royal Blue, 3 Pack
I used to use cardboard boxes from the big box stores to hold my purchases and, additionally, would let my regular groceries roll around in bags in the back of my SUV or car trunk. Ever lost something out of a grocery bag and found it under a seat once it started to decay? Me, too. It was not a pleasant moment in life. I absolutely do not have that problem any longer - these crates hold everything and keep my grocery accidents from ever happening again.

I originally purchased three of the green crates in the 46 Liter size at my local Costco over a year ago. I liked them so well for my use that I talked my daughters into buying some, too. While that size is great, I have found many more sizes on Amazon, including this fantastic new 62 Liter size. It holds so much more weight (approximately 44 pounds more), it is incredible. It still collapses in the same fashion but holds a lot more. I bought three of this size, too. Also, at the time that I am writing this, the larger crate actually costs less than the original, smaller one that I purchased.

I'm trying to decide which ones I like where. I use them all over the place for holding odds and ends. I like them for storage but I especially like them for short term storage where I can move stuff around and then collapse the crate and stack them in my coat closet. Once collapsed down, they take up much less space. I can store three in the same space that one open one takes up. Anything that is as useful as this that can be made smaller when not in use is a fantastic buy for my house.

The green is very bright and goes well in my house. My daughters both prefer the blue, which is a lovely color. Not nearly as bright as the green but it goes well with their cars and house decor. Whichever color you choose, the use is the most important thing and I have never found anything close to these in function and use. I am extremely pleased with the crates.

The computer I bought for my son's elementary school school work and online gaming is of high quality, to my surprise given the lower cost than the laptops I have been using for my work. My son loves the 2 in 1 mode, with laptop mode for daily school work and touch screen tablet mode for his entertainment. The sound quality is also very good, especially when using the headphone. Thirdly, it is very light so my son feels it quite easy to carry it around. My son is quite happy with the new laptop and he has been busy with doing homework and play games on it.

Scarpe Diem: Von dem Mädchen, das loszog, einen Job zu finden, und mit einem Burn-Out zurückkam (German Edition)
Dieses Buch scheint ja wirklich zu polarisieren.
Ich glaube, einige der Rezensenten haben nicht verstanden, dass es sich bei dem vorliegenden Roman um eine Realsatire handelt. Der realistische Hintergrund ergibt sich aus der Biografie der Autorin, die ebenfalls wie die Hauptperson Julia diverse Stationen in Ausbildung und Beruf durchlaufen hat - "Stets bemüht nicht für den Arbeitsmarkt an Wert zu verlieren", wie sie so schön selbst auf ihrer Autorenseite schreibt.

Im Roman geht es um den Werdegang der Hauptperson Julia, die offen ist für alles was das Leben ihr bescheren mag, bei der gemäß Murphys Gesetz aber nichts so läuft, wie sie sich das vorgestellt hat.

Im ersten Teil des Buches versucht Julia den überzogenen Ansprüchen des heutigen Arbeitsmarktes gerecht zu werden und überqualifiziert sich durch ihre Studiengänge, zusätzlichen Abschlüsse, längere und kürzere Auslandsaufenthalte und Berufsserfahrungen vor allem im vom Arbeitsmarkt so gewünschten Feld der Vertriebsleute. Sie erfüllt so gut es geht die Forderungen der immer austauschbareren Arbeitgeber, bietet dafür ihre Flexibilität bei Arbeitszeiten, Wohnorten, Privatleben und Beziehungen.

Doch was fängt man an, wenn man dieses "Spiel" am Arbeitsmarkt irgendwann einmal nicht mehr mitmachen möchte, wenn man ausgebrannt ist, wenn man mit all seiner Überqualifikation und beruflichen Erfahrung einfach nur einen "normalen" Job sucht um seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen und auch noch ein bisschen Privatleben zu haben?

Im zweiten Teil des Buches, wenn Julia über immer krudere Berufsmöglichkeiten und Lebenskonzepte filosofiert, wird diese Jobsuche (und Suche nach dem Sinn des Lebens) endgültig ad absurdum geführt. Der einfach wirkende Satzbau ist ein von einigen Rezensenten missverstandenes Stilmittel, das die Absurdität unterstreicht.

Schöne Realsatire!

Fast Charging Station for Multiple Devices, 48W 4-Port USB Charging Dock with PD& QC 3.0 Ports with 3 Short Cables Watch & Airpod Stand Included for Cell Phone, MacBook, Tablet, and Other Electronics
Everyone should have a product like this. Before I got this charging station, my wife would complain about all the charging cables I had lying around the house. We have a lot of devices and it was hard to explain all the different types out there (lightning, USB-C, Micro-USB, etc.). Needless to say, she was a little overjoyed to see a product like this that helped keep me and my gadgets organized and out of sight.

The first thing I noticed was that the charging station was a lot smaller than I thought it was going to be. However, since it only has four charging ports it doesn’t really need to be that big. Those four ports include 1 USB-C port (rated at 45W), a USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.4A ports. Keep in mind that if you get this for the USB-C charging, you may need to double check with your device to see what kind of power output you need for it. For example, a Nintendo Switch uses 18W USB-C charging, but some MacBooks use an 87W charger, so this will charge those at half the speed.

As for other features, the station comes with a set of plastic dividers to help keep your products neatly organized while charging. They work, but I wish they were a little taller - I don’t really feel too confident when I charge my iPad with this thing, it feels like it’s going to topple over somethings, even though it hasn’t. It also comes with special dividers to be used with an Apple Watch and a set of AirPods; the Apple Watch one works well enough, but the AirPods one seems pretty useless.

Overall, I love this thing. It’s not perfect, but it works great for our needs. Highly recommended.
Texas Hold 'em for Fire TV
Texas Hold 'em for Fire TV
Crappy app. You start with $1,000 virtual dollars and if you win the game resets to $1,000 next time you open it. But if you lose the game remembers and you start with the amount left. So if you ever go bust even once the game will not let you play again until you but some more virtual dollars using a credit card and some very real dollars. Nobody wins at poker every time, there is a degree of chance involved of couse. So you will inevitably end up having to give them money to play. Not quite as "free" as promised. Skip it.

Lo compré porque quería comenzar a hacer un banco de leche para cuando regrese a trabajar, pero como mi bb come demasiado y cada rato, temía que después de recolectar justo me pidiera y ya no quedara leche para él. Pues estoy gratamente sorprendida de cómo me ha aumentado la producción de lehe con este té. Tomo dos tazas al día y siento que cada poco tiempo se me llenan los pechos, de hecho se me congestionan, por lo cuál estoy lactando sin ningún problema y a la vez recolectando para congelar. Ví resultados desde el segundo día, lo volveré a comprar cuando se me acabe. Ah y el sabor me parece agradable :)
