100 Bullshit Jobs

by Stanley Bing

The scholarly discipline of Bullshit Studies has blossomed in the last several years, fertilized by a number of critical works on the subject and the growing importance of the issue across a wide range of professions. Now, best-selling author and lifelong practitioner Stanley Bing enters the field with a comprehensive look at the many attractive jobs now available to those who are serious about their bullshit and prepared to dedicate their working life to it. What, Bing inquires, do a feng shui consultant, new media executive, wine steward, department store greeter, and Vice President of the United States have in common? What, too, are the actual duties performed by a McKinsey consultant? Other than sitting around making people nervous? Could that possibly be his core function? Likewise, what does an aromatherapist actually do, per se? Sniff things and rub them on people, for big fragrant bucks? Is that all? The answer in all cases is "Yes." They all have bullshit jobs. These few, of course, are just the beginning. Across the length and breadth of this shrinking globe, skillful bullshit artists have secured pleasant, lucrative employment, and are enjoying themselves more than you are. In virtually every occupation, from Advertising to Yoga Franchising, lucky individuals who "work" in these coveted positions enjoy the best lives imaginable -- they are paid well, they rarely break a sweat, and their professions are highly respected, because nobody really knows what they do. At once funny, useful, and tolerably philosophical, this groundbreaking work takes a close look at 100 bullshit jobs -- the money they bring with them, the actual tasks and activities involved (if any), and famous and successful examples of each position, who will provide the neophyte with inspiration. Most crucially, Bing goes on to offer what others so far have not--a clear, concise strategy to help job-seekers at every level reach for that brass ring, knowing full well that it may be attached to the nose of a bull.

The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century

by Peter Dreier

A hundred years ago, any soapbox orator who called for womenOCOs suffrage, laws protecting the environment, an end to lynching, or a federal minimum wage was considered a utopian dreamer or a dangerous socialist. Now we take these ideas for granted? because the radical ideas of one generation are often the common sense of the next. We all stand on the shoulders of earlier generations of radicals and reformers who challenged the status quo of their day. Unfortunately, most Americans know little of this progressive history. It isnOCOt taught in most high schools. You canOCOt find it on the major television networks. In popular media, the most persistent interpreter of AmericaOCOs radical past is Glenn Beck, who teaches viewers a wildly inaccurate history of unions, civil rights, and the American Left. "The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century," a colorful and witty history of the most influential progressive leaders of the twentieth century and beyond, is the perfect antidote.

The $12 Million Stuffed Shark: The Curious Economics of Contemporary Art

by Don Thompson

Why would a smart New York investment banker pay $12 million for the decaying, stuffed carcass of a shark? By what alchemy does Jackson Pollock's drip painting No. 5, 1948 sell for $140 million? Intriguing and entertaining, The $12 Million Stuffed Shark is a Freakonomics approach to the economics and psychology of the contemporary art world. Why were record prices achieved at auction for works by 131 contemporary artists in 2006 alone, with astonishing new heights reached in 2007? Don Thompson explores the money, lust, and self-aggrandizement of the art world in an attempt to determine what makes a particular work valuable while others are ignored. This book is the first to look at the economics and the marketing strategies that enable the modern art market to generate such astronomical prices. Drawing on interviews with both past and present executives of auction houses and art dealerships, artists, and the buyers who move the market, Thompson launches the reader on a journey of discovery through the peculiar world of modern art. Surprising, passionate, gossipy, revelatory, The $12 Million Stuffed Shark reveals a great deal that even experienced auction purchasers do not know.

13 Almas

by Sara De Miguel Júlio Machado

O meu nome é Sara. Quando tinha 13 anos diagnosticaram-me um pequeno tumor benigno no úmero. Os médicos não lhe deram muita importância, disseram que, como estava em idade de crescimento, com certeza que se reabsorveria por si mesmo. Eu continuei, com certa inconsciência própria da idade, com a minha vida de adolescente. Terminei o liceu com boas notas, sobrevivi a uma situação familiar muito difícil, e tive as minhas primeiras experiências como pessoa adulta. Decidi estudar psicologia porque gosto das pessoas, mas não gosto de as ver sofrer, e pensava poder ajudar os meus semelhantes a sentirem-se melhor consigo mesmos e com aquilo que os rodeia. O tumor estabilizou até que, quando tinha 19 anos, cresceu de forma súbita e rápida. Invadiu toda a zona do úmero e tive de ser operada com caráter de urgência. Removeram-me o tumor e fizeram-me um excerto de ósseo da anca com osso artificial. Precisei de mais de um ano e meio para recuperar parte da mobilidade. Foi um processo lento e doloroso, sobretudo a nível emocional, já que implicou ter uma vida de pessoa doente enquanto todos os meus amigos tinham uma vida "normal". Foi uma experiência que me afetou muito a todos os níveis. Fez-me repensar as minhas prioridades e valorizar os pequenos momentos e as relações com as pessoas da minha vida. Esta experiência precoce de doença e a presença da possibilidade (ainda que longínqua, de não podermos evitar de pensar nela) de morrer, fez com que aprofundasse na área da psicologia que trabalha com as pessoas doentes. Queria ouvi-las, partilhar a sua dor física e emocional e poder ajudá-las em tudo o que me fosse possível. O meu primeiro trabalho enquanto psicóloga foi na área da saúde mental, e, paralelamente, durante aqueles sete anos a trabalhar com os doentes com problemas graves de psiquiatria, formei-me e especializei-me em psicologia dos cuidados paliativos. �


by Sara De Miguel

C'est curieux car chaque fois qu’une personne me demande ce que je fais, je réponds que je suis psychologue en soins palliatifs, et automatiquement, elle change de sujet. Presque personne ne m'interroge sur mon travail, presque personne ne veut entendre parler de la maladie, et encore moins de la mort, alors que la seule chose certaine dans notre vie, c'est que nous allons mourir. Nous ne savons pas quand ni comment ; mais quand ce moment se produira, nous voulons tous « bien mourir », sans même se demander en quoi consiste « bien mourir ». Heureusement, j'ai l'immense plaisir d‘exercer au sein d'une équipe de médecins et d'infirmiers très professionnelle, mais surtout très humaine, avec qui j’ai partagé l'expérience extraordinaire d'aider de nombreuses personnes à mourir du mieux possible. Et si c'est ainsi, c’est parce que chaque personne malade rencontrée possède une histoire et un présent qui sont le fruit de son unique passé. Ils nous lisent les pages de leur biographie, nous enseignent à voir avec nos yeux et à sentir avec notre cœur ; ils nous font part de leurs peurs et de leurs inquiétudes, laissent exprimer leurs émotions pour que le moment venu ils puissent mourir avec le moins de souffrance possible. Mon plus grand apprentissage au fil des années a été le suivant : si nous écoutions davantage les personnes proches de la mort, nous les aiderions à mourir mieux. Et surtout, si nous écoutions davantage les personnes qui s'approchent de la mort, nous apprendrions à vivre mieux.

13 Anime

by Jessica Catani Sara De Miguel

Se ascoltassimo di più le persone che si avvicinano alla morte, impareremmo a vivere meglio. È curioso come, ogni volta che qualcuno mi chiede cosa faccio ed io rispondo che sono psicologa di cure palliative, automaticamente si cambi discorso. Quasi nessuno mi chiede del mio lavoro, quasi nessuno vuole sentir parlare di malattia, né tantomeno di morte, quando l’unica cosa certa nella nostra vita è che moriremo. Mi chiamo Sara e il mio più grande insegnamento in questi anni è stato che se ascoltassimo di più le persone che si avvicinano alla morte, le aiuteremmo a morire meglio. E, soprattutto, che se ascoltassimo di più le persone che si avvicinano alla morte, impareremmo a vivere meglio.

The 13 Key Performance Indicators for Highly Effective Teams

by Allam Ahmed George Siantonas Nicholas Siantonas

An organisation's most important asset is its people. And critical to an organisation's success is the extent to which its people interact effectively – both with each other as team members and with the wider organisation. This is why managing teams has become a key area for a growing number of organisations around the world. While many organisations are world-class at managing their materials and machinery, they fall short in managing the human side of their activities.This book outlines the challenges faced by both team leaders and team members in 21st-century workplaces. It proposes 13 key performance or "team health" indicators for highly effective teams based on research data collected from a large range of industry sectors, team sizes and organisations in the UK. It contributes to the understanding of the nature and functioning of team cohesiveness by describing teamwork as a multi-component variable and identifying the factors that impact on teams and the implications of teamwork for organisations.The book sets out to aid organisations by introducing a Team Performance Diagnostic (TPD) tool. The TPD enables organisations to gain an accurate and detailed insight into the real-time performance of their teams, helps team managers to understand the underlying 'people' issues within the team and how to reach higher levels of team performance quickly. The TPD has been widely used in major multinationals and the UK public sector to pinpoint hard-to-find opportunities to achieve rapid improvements.The research suggests that the use of TPD contributes to more free-flowing feedback both within the team and in the organisation as a whole, and that successful teams are indicative of a healthy organisational culture.This book is an essential guide for senior managers and policy-makers dealing with team effectiveness, and will be highly useful for students of business and management.

13 Souls

by Jesus M. Gonzalez Sara De Miguel

It is curious that every time someone asks me what I do for a living, and I answer that I am a palliative care psychologist, they automatically change the subject. Almost no one asks me about my work, almost nobody wants to hear about illness, much less death, when the only thing certain in our life is that we will die. My name is Sara, and my greatest learning these years has been that if we listened more to the people who are nearing death, we would help them to die better. And above all, that if we listen more to the people who are nearing death, we would learn to live better.

130 Years of Catching Up with the West: A Comparative Perspective on Hungarian Science and Technology Policy-making Since Industrialization (Routledge Revivals)

by Peter S Biegelbauer

This title was first published in 2000: Issues such as globalization and the fight against joblessness as well as the growth dynamics of economies in general have been linked with science and technology. Accordingly, the growing public interest in the effects of science and technology on society and politics and vice versa have been the foremost reason for the creation of this study. One of the central questions for politicians as well as for scholars in the field of science and technology is, "How can I influence a given science and technology system in a way so as to achieve optimal outcomes for a given national economy?". The study at hand tries to answer this question by analyzing the Hungarian research sphere from industrialization until the late-20th century. Since the beginning of industrialization, Hungary has made a number of attempts to catch up with the economically more developed Western European countries. The problems encountered in the course of the Hungarian efforts are surprisingly similar to the difficulties that modern, fully industrialized economies are facing today.

1919 The Year That Changed America

by Martin Sandler

1919 was a world-shaking year. America was recovering from World War I and black soldiers returned to racism so violent that that summer would become known as the Red Summer. The suffrage movement had a long-fought win when women gained the right to vote. Laborers took to the streets to protest working conditions; nationalistic fervor led to a communism scare; and temperance gained such traction that prohibition went into effect. Each of these movements reached a tipping point that year. Now, one hundred years later, these same social issues are more relevant than ever. Sandler traces the momentum and setbacks of these movements through this last century, showing that progress isn't always a straight line and offering a unique lens through which we can understand history and the change many still seek.

1948: Harry Truman's Improbable Victory and the Year that Transformed America

by David Pietrusza

The behind-the-headline true story of Harry Truman's stunning upset! Everyone knows the iconic news photo of jubilant underdog Harry Truman brandishing a copy of the Chicago Tribune proclaiming "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN. " David Pietrusza goes backstage to explain how it happened, placing the brutal political battle in the context of an erupting Cold War and America's exploding storms over civil rights and domestic communism. Pietrusza achieves for 1948's presidential race what he previously did in his acclaimed 1960--LBJ vs. JFK vs. Nixon: bringing history to life and intrigue readers with tales of high drama while simultaneously presenting the issues, personalities, and controversies of this pivotal era with laser-like clarity.


by Bill Madden

1954: Perhaps no single baseball season has so profoundly changed the game forever. In that year#151;the same in which the US Supreme Court unanimously ruled, in the case of Brown vs. Board of Education, that segregation of the races be outlawed in America's public schools#151;Larry Doby's Indians won an American League record 111 games, dethroned the five-straight World Series champion Yankees, and went on to play Willie Mays's Giants in the first World Series that featured players of color on both teams. Seven years after Jackie Robinson had broken the baseball color line, 1954 was a triumphant watershed season for black players#151;and, in a larger sense, for baseball and the country as a whole. While Doby was the dominant player in the American League, Mays emerged as the preeminent player in the National League, with a flair and boyish innocence that all fans, black and white, quickly came to embrace. Mays was almost instantly beloved in 1954, much of that due to how seemingly easy it was for him to live up to the effusive buildup from his Giants manager, Leo Durocher, a man more widely known for his ferocious "nice guys finish last" attitude. Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Bill Madden delivers the first major book to fully examine the 1954 baseball season, drawn largely from exclusive recent interviews with the major players themselves, including Mays and Doby as well as New York baseball legends from that era: Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford of the Yankees, Monte Irvin of the Giants, and Carl Erskine of the Dodgers. 1954 transports readers across the baseball landscape of the time#151;from the spring training camps in Florida and Arizona to baseball cities including New York, Baltimore, Chicago, and Cleveland#151;as future superstars such as Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, and others entered the leagues and continued to integrate the sport. Weaving together the narrative of one of baseball's greatest seasons with the racially charged events of that year, 1954 demonstrates how our national pastime#151;with the notable exception of the Yankees, who represented "white supremacy" in the game#151;was actually ahead of the curve in terms of the acceptance of black Americans, while the nation at large continued to struggle with tolerance.

1968: Year of Media Decision

by Robert Giles Robert W. Snyder

Thirty years ago American political life was all relentless, painful, and confounding: the Tet Offensive brought new intensity to the Vietnam War; President Lyndon Johnson would not seek re-election; Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated; student protests rocked France; a Soviet invasion ended "socialism with a human face" in Czechoslovakia; the Mexican government massacred scores of peaceful demonstrators; and Richard M. Nixon was elected president. Any one of the events of 1968 bears claim to historical significance. Together they set off shock waves that divided Americans into new and contending categories: hawks and doves, old and young, feminists and chauvinists, straights and hippies, blacks and whites, militants and moderates. As citizens alive to their own time and as reporters responsible for making sense of it, journalists did not stand aside from the conflicts of 1968. In their lives and in their work, they grappled with momentous issues--war, politics, race, and protest.
