The Jets drafted me as the number-one player in the NFL draft. But that first day, the day of the draft, was one of the happiest days in my life, because I knew I was ready to make things happen in the league and help turn things around for the sorry-ass Jets. But what a nightmare! Week after week, loss after loss. The Jets went in with a loser reputation, and they were earning it all over again. We had no emotion, no energy, no hunger. The media tried to cover it all. Rich Kotite tried to explain the disasters away. But nobody outside the team knew the real truth of what really went on. This book is going to change all that.

Every major company has a corporate strategy based on business objectives and competencies of the firm. Most major companies claim to have a corporate social responsibility strategy, most of which are not linked to business objectives of the firm.
Every major company has a corporate strategy based on business objectives and competencies of the firm. Most major companies claim to have a corporate social responsibility strategy, most of which are not linked to business objectives or competencies of the firm. These companies are adopting CSR practices, but aren't reaping the benefits of these initiatives because A) they aren't strategic and B) they're failing to communicate them effectively. Fortunately, closing the CSR story-telling gap can represent great opportunity for savvy companies who want to seize it. Just Good Business shows leaders and managers how to develop a unifying strategy for guiding their CSR work. She walks readers through the process of connecting their CSR efforts to the company's core corporate strategy, business objectives, and core competencies. She then shows with her 7 Principles of Branding & CSR why it's critical to embed CSR initiatives into larger corporate strategy, and to tell their CSR story.
The third-grader Grace Stewart gets stuck with the name "Just Grace" when she tries to distinguish herself from the three other Graces in her class. Grace is plenty different, though. She has a "teeny-tiny superpower," for instance--she can tell if someone is unhappy and often tries to fix it. When she concocts an elaborate scheme to help her neighbor Mrs. Luther feel less lonely, however, her good intentions backfire rather dramatically. Headlines such as "What Happened At Home That Was Completely Surprising" and "Spying For A Good Reason Is Not Bad" keep things lively, as do various lists ("Boy Things," "Rooms You Can Jump In"), comic strips, and the author's cartoonish spot art. A funny glimpse into a third-grader's madcap world of dashed hopes, perceived enemies, possible friends, cats, and sandwiches.

Author and emergency room physician Pamela Grim not only takes you into her dramatic life-and-death world but, in unforgettable prose, shows us the almost unbearable decisions and the heartbreaking conflicts of a woman who just might someday save your life.Here is life on the front lines of medicine, from modern, well-stocked American ERs to third-world clinics devoid of even the most basic equipment. Here a newborn fights for his life, a would-be suicide arrives with a dozen prescription bottles, a teenager lies bleeding with gunshot wounds to the chest, a hundred needy children wait for treatment in a makeshift hospital in Bosnia, and a thousand more people, desperate and dying, hope for some relief in sub-Sahara Africa. Here sleep-deprived doctors perform heroic procedures only to see patients die ... yet they still manage to pull off miracles. As she opens the doors to this adrenaline-fueled environment, Dr. Grim also bares her soul and describes her own personal journey ... including her struggle with burnout and the crisis of faith that drove her to practice medicine in countries ravaged by infectious diseases, poverty, and war.More relentlessly compelling than any medical thriller, Just Here Trying to Save a few Lives has the power to leave you richer. It will lead you to appreciate the resilience of the human body and human spirit as never before, and will make you forever grateful that there are doctors like Pamela Grim.
