Fiske Word Power

by Jane Mallison Edward B. Fiske Margery Mandell

The Exclusive System to Learn-Not Just Memorize-Essential Words A powerful vocabulary opens a world of opportunity. Building your word power will help you write more effectively, communicate clearly, score higher on standardized tests like the SAT, ACT, or GRE, and be more confident and persuasive in everything you do. But in order to truly increase your vocabulary, you need a system that works. With most guides, you end up only memorizing the new words for a short time, often not even long enough to use them in tests. Fiske WordPower is different. Using the exclusive Fiske system, you will not just memorize words, but truly learn their meanings and how to use them correctly. This knowledge will stay with you longer and be easier to recall-and it doesn't take any longer than less-effective memorization. How does it work? This book uses a simple three-part system: 1. Patterns: Words aren't arranged randomly or alphabetically, but in similar groups that make words easier to remember over time. 2. Deeper Meanings, More Examples: Full explanations-not just brief definitions-of what the words mean, plus multiple examples of the words in sentences. 3. Quick Quizzes: Frequent short quizzes help you test how much you've learned, while helping your brain internalize their meanings. Fiske WordPower is the most effective system for building a vocabulary that gets you clear and successful results.

Somewhere in Baghdad is the mysterious "Jericho," the traitor who is willing--for a price--to reveal what is going on in the high councils of the Iraqi dictator.

Fist of the Spider Woman

by Amber Dawn

Traditional horror has often portrayed female characters in direct relation to their sexual role according to men, such as the lascivious victim or innocent heroine; even vampy, powerful female villains, such as the classic noir "spider women," use their sexual prowess to seduce and overwhelm married men. Fist of the Spider Woman is a revelatory anthology of horror stories by queer and transgressive women and others that disrupts reality as queer women know it, instilling both fear and arousal while turning traditional horror iconography on its head.In this collection, horror (including gothic, noir, and speculative writing) is defined as that which both titillates and terrorizes, forcing readers to confront who they are. Kristya Dunnion's "Homeland" reveals the horrors that lurk on your average night in a lesbian bar; Elizabeth Bachinsky's "Postulation on the Violent Works of the Marquis de Sade" is a response to Sade from a feminist (yet kinky) perspective; and Amber Dawn's "Here Lies the Last Lesbian Rental" is a paranormal fantasia about urban gentrification, set in a house rented by lesbians on the eve that it is sold to new owners.Subversive, witty, sexy--and scary--Fist of the Spider Woman poses two questions: "What do queer women fear the most?" and "What do queer women desire the most?"Amber Dawn is a writer, performance artist, and radical sex/gender activist who co-edited With a Rough Tongue: Femmes Write Porn.

A Fistful of Collars

by Spencer Quinn

Everyone's favorite detective team returns in a new adventure as canine narrator Chet and his human partner P.I. Bernie Little find that Hollywood has gone to the dogs. Hoping to bring some Tinseltown money to the Valley, the mayor lures a movie studio to town to shoot their next production, a big-budget Western in the classic tradition. The star is none other than ruggedly handsome--and notoriously badly behaved--Thad Perry. When the mayor decides that someone needs to keep an eye on Thad so that he doesn't get into too much trouble, Bernie and Chet are handpicked for the job. The money is good but something smells fishy, and what should have been a simple matter of babysitting soon gets more complicated--especially when they discover that Thad has a mysterious connection to the Valley that nobody wants to talk about. What kind of secret could Thad have left behind when he went to Hollywood to seek fame and fortune? The only people who might know the answer have a bad habit of turning up dead before they can talk. As Bernie's relationship with his longtime girlfriend Suzie goes long-distance, and Chet's late-night assignations appear to have resulted in an unexpected dividend, it's all our two sleuths can do to keep Thad and his motley entourage of yes-men, handlers, and hangers-on in their sights. Worst of all, Thad is a self-proclaimed cat person, and his feline friend Brando has taken an instant dislike to Chet. Like the winning books before it, this fifth book in the series combines a top-notch mystery with genuine humor and a perceptive take on the relationship between human and dog that will stay with you long after the case is solved.

Fit

by Warren Kennaugh

Understand where you fit to understand where you'll excel Fit: When Talent and Intelligence Just Won't Cut It answers the fundamental performance questions that people have asked for generations. Why is that some individuals are consistently high performers, how do they keep performing in varying situations, organisations and contexts, why can some people just not seem to be able to crack that code, and why do some individuals perform exceptionally well in certain organisations but not in others? This fresh new book challenges current thinking about the war for talent and the role intelligence plays in high performance sport and business. Over 3,000 profiles of elite corporate managers and professional elites have been studied to find the answers as to why certain individuals consistently get exceptional results and why great talent doesn't transfer across teams and businesses. Fit considers real live cases and well-known examples of spectacular successes and failures through the lens of the Hogan Personality Tools. This shows how elite performance is dependent on three things; understanding what role your behaviours are best suited to, what culture you perform your best in and how you're likely to derail your career. Armed with this knowledge, this innovative text allows you to connect the dots on your past performances and prepares you to find roles, organisations and teams which best fit you -opening the door for elite performance. Instead of talent management and changing behaviour, look to Fit as a key to your performance improvement. You'll find that performance does not have a one-size-fits-all formula-it is bespoke, personal and different for each individual. Understand how you can align your natural style with the right roles to achieve elite performance in your professional and personal lives Appreciate your unique behavioural patterns that impact personal and team success Discover that true success is not totally dependent on talent and intelligence, but on discovering what you're good at and where you fit. Fit: When Talent and Intelligence Just Won't Cut It unearths the hidden traits of elite performance and enables you to find your fit to further enhance your engagement and success.

Fit at Fifty and Beyond

by F. Michael Gloth III Rudy Speckamp

Our metabolism changes as we move from young adulthood into our fifties and beyond, and we need to change our approach to nutrition and exercise as a result. Many of us wonder What happened?-without changing our eating habits, we "suddenly" find ourselves both overweight and physically unable to do things that seemed easy just a few years ago. For most people, the natural changes associated with aging, along with a less active lifestyle, have led to increased weight and a loss of physical conditioning. Fit at Fifty and Beyond combines the authors' expertise in aging and nutrition to provide practical suggestions for eating and exercise, and will help readers to look and feel better as the years go by. It provides basic information on how to avoid some of the effects that age can have on weight and fitness, and provides a basic "game plan" for getting into shape and staying that way. By using and applying this information as early as possible, it will prevent these changes from occurring in the first place. If people continue to eat the same type and amounts of food as you get older, without increasing their activity level, they will gain weight, and they will gain it mainly as fat. A basic premise of this book is that preventing this process from occurring does not simply mean eating less and exercising more. Understanding some of the changes associated with aging will allow readers to reach their ideal body weight with relatively little change in the amount you eat or the total amount of exercise or activity you do. By learning about the changes that occur as they grow older, they will find it easier to improve their health, well-being, and general overall appearance. Beginning with a discussion of how evolution made it possible for us to store energy efficiently - which translates into weight gain as we age, the authors provide a strategy for eating and exercising wisely - not just more. Each chapter provides sample recipes that translate the guidelines into healthy and delicious meals. The emphasis in the sections on exercise is choosing an exercise program - and sticking to it - that fits each individual's personality and the activities they enjoy. Chapters deal with the inevitable lapses in both nutrition and exercise, as well as issues that affect people with medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis.

Fit at Last

by Ken Blanchard Tim Kearin

You could be in better shape. No offense--who couldn't be? And if you're like the rest of us, you've been making resolutions and promises for years. Despite all your good intentions, though, somehow it never goes according to plan. But you can break that cycle. In Fit at Last, bestselling business author Ken Blanchard and fitness expert Tim Kearin tell how Ken was finally able, at age seventy-three, to make lasting improvements in his health, including dropping over thirty pounds in a year. In each chapter, Ken shares the very personal story of his ups and downs--a story that involves, among other things, a puppy, a Hawaiian tour bus full of widows, and a fifty-year college reunion--while Tim gives professional health advice and training wisdom. Of course, Ken Blanchard has been helping organizations get healthy for years, and early on he realized he could adapt those same techniques in his own efforts. He shows how readers can use his Situational Leadership approach to determine their developmental level in each of the fitness areas Tim describes and decide what type of leadership they need to move to the next level. Certainly there is a wealth of excellent health advice here, but ultimately, this is not a book about fitness; it's a book about commitment. People don't fail because they don't know what to do--they fail because they just don't do it. Using the tools in this book, you'll be able, like Ken, to move from simply being interested in fitness to making a lasting commitment--one that will add a spring to your step, a smile to your face, and years to your life. "I've been in the fitness industry for more than thirty years, so I know how important it is to keep your body healthy and fit at every age. My hope is that everyone everywhere will realize the transforming effects of a lifelong commitment to health and fitness. I'm so glad Ken has done it--and you can do it, too! Read Fit at Last!" --Denise Austin, fitness guru and author of twelve books, including Side Effect: Skinny

Fit to Fight

by Jason Ferruggia

The ultimate strength and conditioning book for ultimate fighters. Mixed martial arts (MMA) is America's fastest-growing combat sport, with millions signing up for MMA classes and many more tuning in to "pay-per-view" to watch events with names like "Cage Rage" and "No Limit." MMA is not for wimps, and participants take a real pounding-they must be ready for anything. However, there is one way to predict a winner in any bout: conditioning. When facing an opponent with equal technical skill, the better-conditioned athlete will win-every match, every round, every time. Now, with amateur fight leagues springing up across the country, top conditioning coach Jason Ferruggia reveals the ultimate conditioning program for the ultimate fighter. By gaining overall strength, stamina, speed, and flexibility, athletes can substantially reduce their risk of injury in this intense contact sport. The key to Ferruggia's system is his emphasis on matspecific conditioning techniques. Too many would-be fighters use training programs borrowed from football or bodybuilding-methods that are all wrong for MMA. Included are: - A first-rate warm-up guaranteed to make a fighter more explosive and to reduce injuries - Off-the-charts strength-building secrets - Dozens of exercises to develop crushing grip strength - Top speed-building methods, including Olympic lifts, plyometrics, and throws - Incredibly effective exercises for building a thick, powerful neck that could be the difference between victory and serious injury Each exercise is accompanied by black-and-white photos illustrating proper technique and form, and "Inside the Cage" tips share the secrets to success from top professional fighters.
