Book Description :

Vance Hayes died while joyriding on a snowmobile late one night and breaking through thin ice near the Wisconsin Dells. The cold-hearted, hard-headed lawyer goes unmourned by clients, colleagues, or anyone else—including his reluctant eulogist, fellow attorney Rep Pennyworth. In fact, interest in Hayes’ death is merely perfunctory until it inter-sects with the perils facing charmingly ingenuous Vietnamese-American court reporter Sue Key, tied to Milwaukee’s Hmong community. Could it be that Hayes died not because of any of the rotten and vicious things he spent his career doing to literally hundreds of people, but because of the one decent, human endeavor that marked his adult life? The situation is further complicated by deer season when for several weeks in the fall, “up north” is home to 700,000 people carrying loaded firearms. And by the presence of a gaggle of lawyers, patrician and plebian, grouped around Indianapolis and Milwaukee, not to mention a private eye, an e-tailer into books, and a seedy photographer. Can Rep and his shrewd wife Melissa find in them the key to solving the puzzle of Vance Hayes’ death?

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

'Lipstick on a Pig: Why Bail-outs Fail and People Power Will Succeed' is the first of a new series of books by Zopa co-founder Simon Deane-Johns (aka 'The Pragmatist') that take a subversive and irreverent look at how the relationship between society and its institutions is changing, fundamentally and forever - how we, as individuals, are personalising the one-size-fits-all existence traditionally offered by our institutions; and what the impact of this trend will be on our financial system, politics, unions, the church and beyond. Irreverent it may be, but the series deals with some of the most serious and far-reaching issues facing us today. Why start with our financial system? Because, like it or not - and recent impromptu campsites demonstrate that most of us do not like it - our financial system is supposed to be the beating heart of our society, yet it's badly broken. And all the money we allocate to the existing structure is just so much lipstick on a pig. But there is hope, even in the face of financial doom. Alternative financial structures are emerging as part of the 'architecture of participation' that characterises the online environment. At the same time, the 'occupations' are a sign that the majority of us have rounded the 'change curve'. That we have moved beyond 'shock' at how broken things are, through 'denial' and past 'anger and blame' - despite what's written on the placards. We all accept the financial system has changed for the worse, and that something must be done. The only reason people are gathering publicly is to figure out what and how. 'Lipstick on a Pig' explains this challenge in five chapters, based on a series of Pragmatist posts on banking and finance. In the first chapter, we consider the rise of pragmatism out of a bottom-up desire to know what 'works' in the midst of widespread disillusionment with society's institutions. The second chapter looks at the difference between 'institutions', which exist largely to solve their own problems, and 'facilitators', which exist largely to solve their customers' problems. The third focuses on the economic environment in which our financial system operates, including the prevalence of greed and stupidity and a dearth of scepticism and critical thought. The fourth chapter looks at how financial services are evolving in the context described in the previous three chapters. Finally, 'Lipstick on a Pig' explains how financial regulation that ironically was intended to protect us actually works to our detriment, and what changes could be made to encourage the growth of simple, low cost - and useful - financial services.

Book Description :

The real work of an evaluator is to help practitioners and leaders do a better job using their limited resources to provide the best services possible for their clients. This job becomes challenging if the results of a program evaluation indicate that programs are not serving clients as well as everyone assumes. Old methods of data collection might not have been adequate, methods of analyzing the data might not bring issues to light, assumptions of benefits might be false, and a myriad of improper uses of data went unnoticed by the organization. We discover the ugly side of program evaluations when programs elect to use data because it is easy to collect. They may use data that provided glowing reports in the past, or they elect to "make data say what they want it to say." Unfortunately, "data" is so readily available that our fast-paced working world often causes people to grab the data that is the easiest to access, so long as it makes the point they want to make. The proper data to answer the research question may not be available because there has never been any effort to collect it. Data may be available, but no one has taken the time to analyze it properly. Someone may have analyzed the data, but the results of the analysis only make the program look like it wasted scarce resources without meeting clients' needs. There are far too many reasons to grab data, even if it has been manipulated, and present it as valid findings. This book helps anyone involved in programs to stop pretending they have valid data and move toward evaluations that will protect scarce resources and provide the services their clients deserve. It is time to stop putting lipstick on the pig.Topics include: -Dealing With Low or No Standards for Data.- Collection.Dealing With Programs That See No Need to Move Beyond Satisfaction Surveys and Client Counts.-Dealing With Outcomes That Are Only Putting Lipstick on the Pig.-Dealing With a Demand for Positive Data Where No Such Data Exist.-Dealing With "Samples" That Do Not Represent the Population Served.-Dealing With a Highly Popular, but Failing Program.-Dealing With Issues That Exacerbate Data Analysis Issues.-Dealing With Misconceptions About What Constitutes "Scientific Data."-Dealing With the Impact of Consultants and Sales Representatives.

  • Release : 2009-12-23
  • ISBN : 9780307575333
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

President Donald J. Trump lays out his professional and personal worldview in this classic work—a firsthand account of the rise of America’s foremost deal-maker. “I like thinking big. I always have. To me it’s very simple: If you’re going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big.”—Donald J. Trump Here is Trump in action—how he runs his organization and how he runs his life—as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and challenges conventional thinking. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated time-tested guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest accomplishments; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker’s art. And throughout, Trump talks—really talks—about how he does it. Trump: The Art of the Deal is an unguarded look at the mind of a brilliant entrepreneur—the ultimate read for anyone interested in the man behind the spotlight. Praise for Trump: The Art of the Deal “Trump makes one believe for a moment in the American dream again.”—The New York Times “Donald Trump is a deal maker. He is a deal maker the way lions are carnivores and water is wet.”—Chicago Tribune “Fascinating . . . wholly absorbing . . . conveys Trump’s larger-than-life demeanor so vibrantly that the reader’s attention is instantly and fully claimed.”—Boston Herald “A chatty, generous, chutzpa-filled autobiography.”—New York Post
