I had found it in the garden and intended to send it to Chris Packham for Springwatch' Mrs D 'My mum said women of a certain age shouldn't wear beige jackets as from the back they look like a baked potato.' Lorna - Edinburgh Travelling back in time: I don't want to be a killjoy, but I remember a time before duvets were the norm, so I'm already apprehensive. And bearing in mind the lack of female toilets now, basic needs are going to be tricky. Stylish Snippets: Children, drunks and leggings NEVER lie The Atom Bomb The idea of 'the bomb' had me awake for years.

To perform well in today's highly competitive world where technical skills have been advanced to an unprecedented degree, a singer must be able to handle incredible pressure within the performing arena; his or her ability to deal with this stress will often determine whether he or she will succeed. Why, then, do singers with less technical skill sometimes out-perform stars? Why do some stars suddenly stop performing? What is that mysterious factor that makes an electric performance? Consistent, competent performances do not depend solely upon superior vocal skills, nor are they a matter of luck. On the contrary, the best performances result from a combination of mental attitude, concrete performing skills, and excellent technical skills in that order. Yet most singers have never had the opportunity to acquire the essential skills that make for a successful career. Written as a self-help manual for singers at all levels of expertise, Power Performance for Singers is designed to teach performing artists, and especially singers, how to experience elite performance at their level. The skills outlined in this book will help singers use what they have, to enjoy their voices during performance, and to perform consistently to the best of their present ability.

As a culture we are driven--driven to acquire, amass, get, use, devour, taste, and try. And of course it is never enough. Until we figure out that enough is enough, we will never lead a fulfilling life. Unless we let go of possessions, attitudes, emotions, old lovers, or old ideas, we'll never be able to make true changes in our lives. We are very good at taking, consuming, hoarding, devouring, overworking, and inputting more and more and more . . . but we have forgotten how to let go, how to eliminate. We need to remember the basic concept of releasing and renewing that is imprinted in every cell of our bodies. We need to relearn what our ancestors knew: how to banish. "Banishing," Denny Sargent writes, "is the identification and naming of people, things, forces, feelings, thoughts, or ideas that are negative or harmful in one's life and, through the strength of will and positive power, i.e. love, taking command over these negatives and tossing them OUT!" Sargent, an eclectic ritualist, interweaves his personal testimonial with the theory of banishing harmful factors from our physical environment and from our bodies, our hearts and emotional lives, our minds, and our spirits--through the elements of air, fire, water, earth, and spirit. In the second part of the book he provides more than 100 banishing exercises and rituals based on traditional practices performed throughout time and around the world.

Ständige Ablenkung ist heute das Hindernis Nummer eins für ein effizienteres Arbeiten. Sei es aufgrund lauter Großraumbüros, vieler paralleler Kommunikationskanäle, dauerhaftem Online-Sein oder der Schwierigkeit zu entscheiden, was davon nun unsere Aufmerksamkeit am meisten benötigt. Sich ganz auf eine Sache konzentrieren zu können wird damit zu einer raren, aber wertvollen und entscheidenden Fähigkeit im Arbeitsalltag. Cal Newport prägte hierfür den Begriff "Deep Work", der einen Zustand völlig konzentrierter und fokussierter Arbeit beschreibt, und begann die Regeln und Denkweisen zu erforschen, die solch fokussiertes Arbeiten fördern. Mit seiner Deep-Work-Methode verrät Newport, wie man sich systematisch darauf trainiert, zu fokussieren, und wie wir unser Arbeitsleben nach den Regeln der Deep-Work-Methode neu organisieren können. Wer in unserer schnelllebigen und sprunghaften Zeit nicht untergehen will, für den ist dieses Konzept unerlässlich. Kurz gesagt: Die Entscheidung für Deep Work ist eine der besten, die man in einer Welt voller Ablenkungen treffen kann.

"Sixty years later, Jaffe’s classic still strikes a chord, this time eerily prescient regarding so many of the circumstances surrounding sexual harassment that paved the way toward the #MeToo movement." -Buzzfeed When Rona Jaffe’s superb page-turner was first published in 1958, it changed contemporary fiction forever. Some readers were shocked, but millions more were electrified when they saw themselves reflected in its story of five young employees of a New York publishing company. Almost sixty years later, The Best of Everything remains touchingly—and sometimes hilariously—true to the personal and professional struggles women face in the city. There’s Ivy League Caroline, who dreams of graduating from the typing pool to an editor’s office; naïve country girl April, who within months of hitting town reinvents herself as the woman every man wants on his arm; and Gregg, the free-spirited actress with a secret yearning for domesticity. Jaffe follows their adventures with intelligence, sympathy, and prose as sharp as a paper cut.
