Out of the Spin Cycle Book Description :

What lists and systems and self-help books have failed to do for young moms in the trenches, Jesus can accomplish blindfolded. Yes, moms are busy, they need a break, and they'd just like a shower. But they are also strong and brilliant and have the power to move mountains. Author and speaker Jen Hatmaker takes the words and deeds of Jesus, adds the humor of a young mom's life, and offers messages of grace and encouragement. She shows overburdened moms forty things Jesus doesn't expect them to do on their own. Covering areas such as worry, marriage, priorities, money, and the trap of comparison, this lively Bible teacher brings Jesus's message alive in a format geared to the short moments moms have that can be allotted to reflection. This is a devotional for the woman inside the mom--the Bible student, the learner, the world-changer.

Off Balance in the Spin Cycle Book Description :

Having spent time caring for my precious wardrobe. observing it process through the modern wash cycle; I've witnessed mechanical malfunctions first-hand. This is when clothes become Off Balance in the Spin Cycle. Nearing the end of a wash sequence typically, when this occurs, the washer rocks violently and requires an adjustment. An off balance spin cycle is usually due to my intention to cut corners to complete necessary but unsatisfying chores more quickly. I overburden the washing machine resulting in a lop-sided load. This directly correlates metaphorically to "life-cycling." Off Balance in the Spin Cycle, shares intimate short stories where addictive influences living in the fast lane resulted in an "off balance lifestyle." The average washing machine spins at 600 to 1400 RPM. Like these machines, many of us live at our ultimate RPM. I know I have. In doing so, we, like our washing machines, cry in despair for balance. We demonstrate to our inner self our need for adjustments to reach our "Chi ~ In Balance." Off Balance in the Life Cycle, shares these personal stories of adversity providing readers a recognition. While running rampant in our world full of menacing obstacles, we learn to overcome them by developing coping skills and in building support networks getting us "in Balance." My hope is for these stories to share a reality and belief we all can open ourselves to cura te ipsum. Heal Thy Self!

Spin Cycle Book Description :

Jonathan Rana has two names. The other name is Qubert Spin, but in truth these names are facetious tags. Qubert is the most descriptive for those who care, and for those who don’t, Jonathan sounds more natural, for one who is unnatural, but invites less curiosity, while the other has a nice spin. In the course of a few years, Qubert came into being, an offspring of so many. Rare was the person who could foresee the outcome of such an eclectic undertaking, but once realized was helpless to convince anyone else. No credible supervisor could claim the existence of an animate computer. Quantum physics is not a hot topic in the culture of today or for that matter of yesterday. All of those sub-atomic particles, actually wave forms, are the same on earth as at the edge of the universe; they undulate and spin. Once enough of those wave forms are regimented into productive alignment, a door will open. Now comes the choice of either crossing the threshold or not. It’s a safe bet what happens next. In this account, there is Qubert, full of human traits, with an ambition for descendants. Cultural forerunners have detractors, hostile and afraid, thus being unique brings great risk, even loathing. In contrast there are others who have no fear, quietly anticipating things to come. Too often there have been attempts to predict the technology of the future, which end as wishful thinking. The safest narrative is to employ predictable human behavior, blend in the technical basics, and the rest will follow. Herein are the basics for the characters to manage thereafter.

What are the psychological, emotional and verbal tools the abuser uses to control the victim? What is the worst part of the abuse according to victims?

Spin Cycle Book Description :

One important aim of social science research is to provide unbiased information that can help guide public policies. However, social science is often construed as politics by other means. Nowhere is the polarized nature of social science research more visible than in the heated debate over charter schools. In Spin Cycle, noted political scientist and education expert Jeffrey Henig explores how controversies over the charter school movement illustrate the use and misuse of research in policy debates. Henig's compelling narrative reveals that, despite all of the political maneuvering on the public stage, research on school choice has gradually converged on a number of widely accepted findings. This quiet consensus shows how solid research can supersede partisan cleavages and sensationalized media headlines. In Spin Cycle, Henig draws on extensive interviews with researchers, journalists, and funding agencies on both sides of the debate, as well as data on federal and foundation grants and a close analysis of media coverage, to explore how social science research is "spun" in the public sphere. Henig looks at the consequences of a highly controversial New York Times article that cited evidence of poor test performance among charter school students. The front-page story, based on research findings released by the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), sparked an explosive debate over the effectiveness of charter schools. In the ensuing drama, reputable scholars from both ends of the political spectrum launched charges and counter-charges over the research methodology and the implications of the data. Henig uses this political tug-of-war to illustrate broader problems relating to social science: of what relevance is supposedly non-partisan research when findings are wielded as political weapons on both sides of the debate? In the case of charter schools, Henig shows that despite the political posturing in public forums, many researchers have since revised their stances a

SPIN Selling Book Description :

True or false? In selling high-value products or services: 'closing' increases your chance of success; it is essential to describe the benefits of your product or service to the customer; objection handling is an important skill; open questions are more effective than closed questions. All false, says this provocative book. Neil Rackham and his team studied more than 35,000 sales calls made by 10,000 sales people in 23 countries over 12 years. Their findings revealed that many of the methods developed for selling low-value goods just don‘t work for major sales. Rackham went on to introduce his SPIN-Selling method. SPIN describes the whole selling process: Situation questions Problem questions Implication questions Need-payoff questions SPIN-Selling provides you with a set of simple and practical techniques which have been tried in many of today‘s leading companies with dramatic improvements to their sales performance.
