She might not have a career, either, when her nationwide audience finds out their marriage guru has been left at the altar. Enter Lucas Wright, who offers to stand in for the missing husband-to-be and marry her. Kate's desperate enough to agree--although she's sure this Mr. Wright is completely wrong for her. But can they pull it off? And why would Lucas marry her in the first place? Could it be that "Dr. Kate" doesn't know the first thing about love?

Cooking for Friends

by Gordon Ramsay

"As a chef, I work at a thousand miles an hour, but when I'm at home, I want to slow down." way from the high-octane energy of the professional kitchen, Gordon Ramsay makes meals at home that are more re-laxed, where cooking is fun and everyone gets involved in preparing food for family and friends. The way Gordon cooks here embodies his strongly held views: use in-season, fresh ingredients at their peak; support local producers and farmers' markets whenever possible; and celebrate the food culture and its many influences. And while Gordon loves to celebrate traditional food, he proves that it doesn't have to be boring, bland, or uninventive. Cooking for Friends is full of Gordon's best-loved versions of classic dishes--try a slow-cooked dish like Honey Roast Ham or Corn-Fed Chicken Legs with Braised Peas and Onions, or invite people around for a Sunday lunch of Roast Rib-Eye with Caramelized Shallot and Red Wine Gravy. Cook the ultimate in comfort food, Shepherd's Pie with Branston Pickle or Bakewell Tart, and get the kids involved in making Farfalle with Bacon, Peas, and Sage or Grilled Vegetable Lasagne. Cooking for Friends contains more than one hundred of Gordon's favorite recipes that he loves to cook and eat with friends and family--uncomplicated recipes but all with Gordon's remarkable feeling for flavor and his extraordinary technical know-how.

Cool Zone with the Pain and the Great One (Pain and the Great One Series)

by Judy Blume James Stevenson

THE PAIN AND the Great One hardly agree on anything. But deep down, they know they can count on each other, especially at school, where it often takes two to figure things out. Like when that first baby tooth falls out on the school bus. Or when an unwanted visitor on Bring Your Pet to School Day needs to be caught. Or worst of all, when a scary bully says you're burnt toast. On days like these it can feel good not to go it alone. (And don't forget Fluzzy the cat, who knows a thing or two himself.)From the Hardcover edition.

Cop on Loan

by Jeannie Watt

Playing bodyguard to a vigilante librarian--excuse me, library technician--is not the career move Tony DeMonte had in mind when he came to this town. On temporary loan, the big-city cop figured he'd take it easy, maybe watch the grass grow. Not with Jasmine Storm colliding into danger every other day. Getting mixed up with a failed drug bust is just the beginning. Now she claims there's an intruder in her house. Which leaves Tony no choice but to. . . move in. Jasmine and her cat get the protection they need, and Tony and his dog get a roof over their heads. But he can't stay forever--despite one attractive library technician's attempts to make him see that a solitary life is a lonely life. . . .

Coping with the Stresses and Emotions: Becoming a New Manager Isn't Easy

by Linda A. Hill

By necessity, new managers must work hard on themselves as they adapt to the challenges of managerial work and their new network of relationships. The move to management requires numerous changes: in the way you present yourself, in the way others treat you, and in the way you interact with new sets of people. Stress and other turbulent emotions are inevitable, and learning to deal with stresses and emotions may be as important to your career's success as your specific achievements at work. Author Linda A. Hill followed nineteen new managers through their first year, gathering data about the managerial transition. In this chapter, the managers describe in their own words some of the stresses and intense emotions they experienced during their transitions, as well as the mechanisms they developed for coping with stress-related problems in the workplace and in their lives outside of work. This chapter was originally published as Chapter 7 of "Becoming a Manager: How New Managers Master the Challenges of Leadership."

Corporate Communications: Convention, Complexity and Critique

by Mette Morsing Dr George E. Cheney Dr Lars T. Christensen

The field of corporate communications describes the practices organizations use to communicate as coherent corporate `bodies'. Drawing on the metaphor of the body and on a variety of theories and disciplines the text challenges the idealized notion that organizations can and should communicate as unified wholes. The authors pose important questions such as: - Where does the central idea of corporate communications come from? - What are the underlying assumptions of most corporate communications practices? - What are the organizational and ethical challenges of attempting truly `corporate' communication? Clearly written with international vignettes and executive briefings, this book shows that in a complex world the management of communication needs to embrace multiple opinions and voices. Rewarding readers with a deeper understanding of corporate communications, the text will be a `must read' for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars, in the arenas of corporate communications, organizational communication, employee relations, marketing, public relations and corporate identity management. Practitioners in these areas will be provoked to re-examine their assumptions and habits.

The Corpse Walker

by Liao Yiwu

The Corpse Walker introduces us to regular men and women at the bottom of Chinese society, most of whom have been battered by life but have managed to retain their dignity: a professional mourner, a human trafficker, a public toilet manager, a leper, a grave robber, and a Falung Gong practitioner, among others. By asking challenging questions with respect and empathy, Liao Yiwu managed to get his subjects to talk openly and sometimes hilariously about their lives, desires, and vulnerabilities, creating a book that is an instance par excellence of what was once upon a time called "The New Journalism." The Corpse Walker reveals a fascinating aspect of modern China, describing the lives of normal Chinese citizens in ways that constantly provoke and surprise.From the Trade Paperback edition.ws (conducted between 1990 and 2003) with sensitivity and patience, working both from notes and from his own memory of these remarkable conversations. The result is an idiosyncratic, powerful, and richly revealing portrait of a people, a time, and a place we might otherwise have never known.From the Hardcover edition.
