7 Ways to Practice Positivity and Optimism Every Day

By now the benefits of positive thinking are well established. Sages, psychologists, neuroscientists, researchers and doctors all have been espousing the benefits of positive thinking for hundreds of years.

Positive thinking helps us to be healthier, more productive and ultimately happier. Yet for most of us it is hard to practice optimism on a regular basis.

Relieving the states that make life miserable… has made building the states that make life worth living less of a priority. The time has finally arrived for a science that seeks to understand positive emotion, build strength and virtue, and provide guideposts for finding what Aristotle called the ‘good life.’ — Dr. Martin Seligman

I am fascinated by the human quest to understand the underpinnings of positive thinking. From Epictetus to Ralph Waldo Emerson to Buddha to Dr. Martin Seligman to Oprah, I seek every bit of inspiring wisdom I can to practice optimism.

Here are my seven essential mantras that I find helpful to keep myself on a positive track:

1. Guide Your Energy

“I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.” — Muhammad Ali

According to quantum physics, our thoughts have a frequency and a corresponding unique vibration that attracts similar frequencies into our lives. So negative thinking attracts negative energy; positive thinking attracts positive energy.

Buddha, Aristotle and many others have suggested the same, how we think creates the energy that ultimately manifests our realities. If we go into a situation with a negative thought process then we are almost destined to have a negative outcome.

This also applies to group thinking or collective consciousness. When a collection of people together guides their mental energy for a positive outcome, the likelihood of their success is usually lot higher and than otherwise. Their collective energy attracts positivity or negativity.

2. Connect with Ourselves

Life is a process of ongoing transformation spurred by the interlinked qualities of curiosity, purpose, and courage. When you know yourself, you can act with a confidence that is your own.

The better we understand the nature of the world, the better we can move in the world. The better we understand the nature of ourselves, the better we can move within ourselves.

3. Practice Visualization

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”– Buddha

Visualization is perhaps one of many attributes that assures one’s future. In the psychology community, creative visualization refers to the practice of seeking to affect the outer world by changing one’s thoughts and expectations.

Visualization is a technique used by winners in all walks of life. Our minds have an enormous capacity to connect the invisible dots to guide us to strive for the impossible.

4. Slow Down To Move Forward

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves — slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment.” — Thich Nhat Hanh

Sometimes we need to slow down in order to move forward. Slowing down is a deliberate choice that can lead to greater appreciation for life and a greater level of happiness, which yields better results in one’s endeavors.

Being truly in the moment allows us to escape from adversity and conserve our inner energy. Living in the moment doesn’t mean we don’t care about the future. It means that when we make a choice to do something, we focus on solely doing it, rather than letting our mind wander into the future (or the past).

5. Read, Write, Watch

Inspiration can come from anywhere and anyone. Mine often comes from books and movies – books and movies that combine life stories with a spiritual journey.

Writing allows us to consciously put these positive reaffirmations on paper to visualize our destiny. I have also found writing is therapeutic for coping with my adversities. It allows me to turn my anger, fear, and disappointments into inspiration for myself and my readers. It serves as stress relief when you try to turn negative into positive by finally expressing what you feel down deep inside.

6. Be Kind To Yourself

In his book, The Art of Happiness, His Holiness the fourteenth Dalai Lama wrote, “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”

It is particularly difficult to stay positive in the face of adversity and failure. For many, even though it may be easy to show compassion to others, it may be hard to accept, embrace, and be compassionate toward ourselves. Some of us blame others for all our miseries and some blame ourselves. Often it’s easy to blame oneself, feel sorry, and/or put oneself down. It is only through being able to let go, have compassion for oneself, and self-encouragement that we can pursue a path of positivity.

It is our trials and tribulations that make us who we are. Without compassion for ourselves we never find the awareness that allows us to nurture our true self.

7. Develop Resiliency

“In the end, if you are lucky, you see that our trials are what improve us. And if you are very lucky and somewhat insightful, you see that whatever your trial has been, it is exactly what you needed. Our trials make us who we are.” — Michael Morton

Positive people develop a mental capacity that allows them to adapt with ease during adversity. They develop a set of powerful mental traits.

Resiliency begins with adaptability, acceptance, and gratitude. Success and happiness does not always come from blasting through rocks and impediments, rather from having the faith, courage and ‘letting it happen’ attitude to cope with harsh realities of life.

Above all, positive and optimistic people lead themselves by constantly finding encouragement within their soul. They surround themselves with other positive people. And they inspire others despite their own personal adversity.

The more you give out positively, the more you get back.

The Six Best Bar Soaps. Period.

It’s a common shower dilemma: to use bar soap or body wash. While some are devout bar soap-ers, others prefer to lather up their loofah with just a few pumps of body wash. So which do you choose? While it can be all about preference, allow us to try to convince you to stick to the time-tested wonder that is the basic bar of soap.

First and foremost, using bar soap can benefit your body and the planet, at least according to board-certified dermatologist Dr. Susan Stuart. “Soap bars are more environmentally-friendly — there are no plastic bottles or containers to dispose of in landfills,” Dr. Stuart told The Huffington Post via email.

To be fair, bar soaps can leave behind some not-so-appealing build-up in your tub or shower. But to combat this problem, Dr. Stuart has some advice: “The best way to store used soap bars is in a tray with perforations in the base which prevents water (and bacteria) from accumulating on them.”

Still not convinced? Here are six of the best bar soaps out there. Period.

    The Apollo 11 Mission: 45 Years Later

    Forty-five years ago today, two American astronauts — Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong — landed on the moon's Sea of Tranquility, and Neil Armstrong planted the first footprint on the surface of the moon. As he made those first steps, Armstrong uttered that simple phrase we still remember today: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

    Today, President Obama joined all Americans honoring that giant leap forward, by inviting Neil Armstrong's wife, Carol, Michael Collins, the astronaut who piloted the spacecraft that orbited the moon, and Buzz Aldrin, to the White House. Armstrong passed away in 2012.

This week marked the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing.

    July 22, 2014.

    (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

    In the President's statement on today's meeting, he honored the bravery and leadership that these heroes displayed, and acknowledged the influence that their mission has had on mankind:

    The United States of America is stronger today thanks to the vision of President Kennedy, who set us on a course for the moon, the courage of Neil, Buzz, and Michael, who made the journey, and the spirit of service of all who’ve worked not only on the Apollo program, but who’ve dared to push the very boundaries of space and scientific discovery for all humankind.

    As we commemorate that day, we take a look back at the Apollo 11 mission and the extraordinary influence of the U.S. space program.

    Jon Stewart Wants You To Help Him Buy CNN

    Forget that potato salad Kickstarter campaign. Jon Stewart has something much more fun you can do with any money you’re willing to throw away.

    Stewart wants to buy CNN, and on Tuesday night’s “Daily Show,” he asked for your help.

    Rupert Murdoch is angling to purchase Time Warner. But since he already owns Fox News, he’d likely be forced to sell CNN, which experts say could fetch $ 10 billion — or exactly the amount Stewart is hoping to raise.

    “This $ 10 billion all-cash bid for CNN would secure control of a massive television network reaching over 100 million homes in the US alone, which we could then use to rebuild a news organization befitting this proud land,” a statement on Stewart’s “Let’s Buy CNN” page reads. “Or more likely we’d use it to make a lot more poop jokes.”

    Like any good Kickstarter campaign, Stewart is offering up some enticing rewards.

    Watch the clip above to find out what they are.

    http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

    The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

    Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

    The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

    American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072. Please include name (if organization please include organization and contact name),mailing address,designate Spanish or English,amount of cards requested,and telephone number.

    American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

    Diner Leaves $1,000 Tip, Waiter Shares Unexpected Gift With Entire Staff

    A patron at an upstate New York restaurant left his server a generous tip — and also offered his two cents in the form of a life lesson.

    A diner who was celebrating his birthday at The Ginger Man in Albany, N.Y., last week tipped server Michael Shafts $ 1,000, along with the message, “Pay it forward. My birthday present to me!” ABC News reported. The tip was 10 times the amount of the entire bill.

    And pay it forward he did. Shafts shared his gratuity with all the staff members who had worked that night.

    The gift had come as a complete surprise. Shafts had just finished serving a couple celebrating the husband’s 47th birthday when, on her way out, the woman stopped to talk to him. She told Shafts that her husband had done something very nice for him, according to Times Union.

    “I shook his hand, I hugged him twice, and I said it was too much, twice,” Shafts told the outlet. “He insisted, twice, that he wanted to do it, that it was legitimate.”

    The couple had dined at the restaurant before, but were not regulars. Shafts had never been their waiter before receiving the incredible tip.

    “It was surreal. I was shaking.” he told ABC. “I couldn’t feel my legs.”

    Julie Byron, The Ginger Man’s manager, told ABC that Shafts divvied up more than half of the money.

    “When he returned to work on Saturday night, he had envelopes of money for all of the staff, both front-of-house and back-of-house that had been working with him on Wednesday night,” she told the news outlet.

    She said Shafts is a very hardworking person and that the decision to share the reward was not out of character for her employee.

    “He’s honestly a great guy and it couldn’t have happened to a better person.”

    Denver Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen Resigns, Has Alzheimer’s Disease

    Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has given up control of the team as he fights Alzheimer’s disease, according to the Denver Post.

    “The Broncos are very saddened that Mr. Bowlen is no longer able to be part of the team’s daily operations due to his condition. We continue to offer our full support, compassion and respect to ‘Mr. B,’ who has faced Alzheimer’s disease with such dignity and strength,” a team statement issued to the newspaper reads.

    The statement says Broncos president Joe Ellis will continue to operate the team, but that over the long term Bowlen hopes one of his seven children will eventually take control.

    Bowlen, 70, bought the Broncos in 1984 when the team was facing bankruptcy. Under his ownership, the team made six Super Bowl appearances, winning twice.

    “Alzheimer’s has taken so much from Pat, but it will never take away his love for the Denver Broncos and his sincere appreciation for the fans,” his wife, Annabel Bowlen, said in a statement to the newspaper.

    My family will stand strong with Pat as he continues his courageous fight against a disease that is unfortunately all too common. One in nine people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s, and my family is experiencing the same difficult emotions that so many have felt when someone they love and respect is afflicted with this condition.”

    We leave the kids with the parents and Charlie and me drive down the coast to a romantic getaway. During dinner, we’re both struck by the girl selling flowers in the restaurant and she takes a liking to us as well. She offers to shoot an erotic video Excerpt: She worked the rest of the room and disappeared just about the time our dinner arrived at the table. Charlie was sweet all through dinner and paid lots of attention to me and gave me compliments on how hot I looked and how he felt lucky to be married to me. I was getting really amorous by this point in the evening. Between the wine and flowers and the food and Charlie’s hand that kept creeping up my thigh under the table; I was ready for a good fucking. We were just finishing a delightful chocolate decadence and some coffee when the flower girl came into the room again, only this time she was offering to take peoples pictures. “Should we have her take our picture as a keepsake?” I asked Charlie. “Sure, Why not!” he said eagerly. I think both of us wanted to have another chance to visit with her up close. As she approached our table, she smiled and asked “So is this a special occasion tonight?” “It’s our tenth anniversary!” I said jubilantly. “Well then, let me take this picture for you as compliments of the house.” She said as she motioned for the two of us to scrunch together as she snapped a couple of photos with her digital camera. “By the way, my name is Amanda. I’ll have your photo ready in a little bit. What’s your room number and I’ll swing them by?” Charlie pulled the key out of his pocket to confirm the room number “Suite 17″ he said. “Oh, that’s a very nice room. I’ll be up there shortly.” Again I watched her closely as she made her way from table to table. I’d never had such an attraction to another woman in my entire life. I excused myself to go use the restroom. Just as I entered the bathroom, I felt someone come up close behind me. I turned with a bit of a bewildered look and saw it

    The Top 5 Best Moments from the 2014 Kids’ State Dinner

    Ed. note. This is cross-posted from the Let's Move blog. See the original post here.

    Today, the First Lady welcomed fifty-four young chefs from all over the country to the State Dining Room for the 2014 Kids’ State Dinner. These 54 kids were selected from more than 1,500 recipes that were submitted for the Epicurious Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. From the décor to the talent, food, and big smiles, the White House was bustling with our next generation of kids encouraging healthy habits.

    The kids heard from the First Lady, tasted delicious meals, and enjoyed live entertainment all before taking a stroll to the White House Kitchen Garden. There were so many amazing moments from this year’s Kids State Dinner but here’s a “taste” of some of our favorites:

    1. Enjoying the Healthy Lunches

    From Black Bean Burgers to Smoky Southwestern Vegetable Dip, the lunch cooked up by White House chefs of the winning recipes was healthy and scrumptious! Make sure to check out how to cook up these great recipes in your own kitchen at home!

    2. Meeting the Young Chefs

    It was so fun for all of the budding chefs to meet each other and share their passion for healthy eating and cooking.

    3. The Surprise Visitor

    President Obama stopped by to surprise everyone and say hi! The President even shared a couple of the First Family’s favorites.

    4. The Red Carpet

    Each winning chef walked down a red carpet surrounded by giant balloon flowers into the State Dining Room. Several kids were interviewed by Sam Kass and shared what inspired their delicious creations.

    5. The Surprise Performance

    The Lion King! We were so thrilled when the Broadway cast of the Lion King gave a surprise performance for everyone. Simba and Nala opened it up and Rafiki made his way down the State Dining Room floor. The Circle of Life took over the room as the audience sang along!

    Sunday Roundup

    This week, President Obama’s $ 3.7 billion request to deal with the border crisis stalled as lawmakers introduced a bill that purportedly aims to help young unaccompanied immigrants but actually just makes it easier to quickly deport them — a measure Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, dismissed as “the deportation-only agenda dressed up in sheep’s clothing.” The crisis is certainly a chance to look in the mirror and decide what kind of nation we want to be: one that holds up “return to sender” signs and walks through towns with AR-15 rifles to protest the possible arrival of a few busloads of Central American children (as happened in Arizona and Michigan respectively), or one that decries “racist and xenophobic attitudes,” as Pope Francis urged on Monday, and lives up to our founding principles as a nation of immigrants. Hanging in the balance isn’t just which direction the children will go in, but the rest of us, as well.

    The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

    Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

    The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

    American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

    American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

    To Find Your Mission, Disrupt Your Life

    We saw how choosing the mission-driven life is the basis of social entrepreneurship. We choose it out of a sense of responsibility to the world and to the value of our own lives.

    But that sense of responsibility and the yearning for a more purposeful life often come to us before we know what our mission is.

    How do we find our mission?

    In my experience, the answer is to disrupt your life and search for it.

    New Perspectives

    When I quit my career to embark on a new path, I didn’t know what I was doing or seeking. My instincts were strong but their message unclear. I just knew I needed to get away.

    I bought a one-way ticket to Mexico, where I’d never been. I told myself I was taking a sabbatical, but beyond that, all was unknown. I didn’t even know where I would sleep the night I arrived — let alone that I would discover my life mission three months later.

    But that was the point: it was a time of not knowing, of experimenting, of exploring and deepening a new awareness.

    For the first few weeks, I discovered the joy of traveling aimlessly and lightly through a new country, reawakening my sense of curiosity. Settling in Oaxaca, I gained a deeper appreciation of craft by studying ceramics and music, and fueled my self-reflection by studying philosophy at a local university.

    I wasn’t interested in a single “truth,” but in learning to see life from multiple perspectives.

    Doing By Not Doing

    My whole life up to then had been about “productivity.” As a business consultant, the key metric was billable hours; as a global trade executive, financial returns. Time was literally money, and the ideal person a kind of productivity machine.

    Now I could see that old model in a new light. I was re-humanizing my relationship to time and my understanding of value.

    But it wasn’t easy. The old metrics still haunted me. What was I doing with myself? What value was I adding?

    Self-doubt began to wrack me. For weeks I’d wake in the middle of the night scared I’d made the wrong decision. I’d thrown everything away and what had I gained? Was I really an escapist like my family and many of my friends said?

    Gaining Clarity

    Then, one night, I overcame these doubts by simply deciding I’d done the right thing. That was it: a deep, defiant decision. I woke in the morning with a newfound sense of clarity.

    When I walked outside into the day, I met the person who would soon help reveal my mission to me — a neighbor who introduced me to the farmers with whom I’d eventually start my social enterprise.

    That was the most valuable lesson from this exploratory time. When you have clarity about your commitment, the right opportunities emerge. I’ve experienced it again and again ever since.

    Curiosity, joy, integrity, clarity of commitment — all of these are essential to social entrepreneurship in its deepest sense. But I had to disrupt my life and take a risk in order to rediscover them.

    Here’s What Happens When An Amoeba ‘Eats’ The Brain

    Last week, nine-year-old Hally Yust died after contracting a rare brain-eating amoeba infection while swimming near her family’s home in Kansas.

    The organism responsible, Naegleria fowleri, dwells in warm freshwater lakes and rivers and usually targets children and young adults. Once in the brain it causes a swelling called primary meningoencephalitis. The infection is almost universally fatal: it kills more than 97 percent of its victims within days.

    Although deadly, infections are exceedingly uncommon—there were only 34 reported in the U.S. during the past 10 years—but evidence suggests they may be increasing. Prior to 2010 more than half of cases came from Florida, Texas and other southern states. Since then, however, infections have popped up as far north as Minnesota.

    “We’re seeing it in states where we hadn’t seen cases before,” says Jennifer Cope, an epidemiologist and expert in amoeba infections at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The expanding range of Naegleria infections could potentially be related to climate change, she adds, as the organism thrives in warmer temperatures. “It’s something we’re definitely keeping an eye on.”

    Still, “when it comes to Naegleria there’s a lot we don’t know,” Cope says—including why it chooses its victims. The amoeba has strategies to evade the immune system, and treatment options are meager partly because of how fast the infection progresses.

    But research suggests that the infectioncan be stopped if it is caught soon enough. So what happens during an N. fowleri infection?

    The microscopic amoebae, which can be suspended in water or nestled in soil, enter the body when water goes up the nose. After attaching to the mucous membranes in the nasal cavity, N. fowleri burrows into the olfactory nerve, the structure that enables our sense of smell and leads directly to the brain. It probably takes more than a drop of liquid to trigger a Naegleria infection; infections usually occur in people who have been engaging in water sports or other activities that may forcefully suffuse the nose with lots of water—diving, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and in one case a baptism dunking.

    It turns out that "brain eating" is actually a pretty accurate description for what the amoeba does. After reaching the olfactory bulbs, N. fowleri feasts on the tissue there using suction-cup-like structures on its surface. This destruction leads to the first symptoms—loss of smell and taste—about five days after the infection sets in.

    From there the organisms move to the rest of the brain, first gobbling up the protective covering that surrounds the central nervous system. When the body notices that something is wrong, it sends immune cells to combat the infection, causing the surrounding area to become inflamed. It is this inflammation, rather than the loss of brain tissue, that contributes most to the early symptoms of headache, nausea, vomiting and stiff neck. Neck stiffness in particular is attributable to the inflammation, as the swelling around the spinal cord makes it impossible to flex the muscles.

    As N. fowleri consumes more tissue and penetrates deeper into the brain, the secondary symptoms set in. They include delirium, hallucinations, confusion and seizures. The frontal lobes of the brain, which are associated with planning and emotional control, tend to be affected most because of the path the olfactory nerve takes. “But after that there’s kind of no rhyme or reason—all of the brain can be affected as the infection progresses,” Cope says.

    Ultimately what causes death is not the loss of grey matter but the extreme pressure in the skull from the inflammation and swelling related to the body’s fight against the infection. Increasing pressure forces the brain down into where the brain stem meets the spinal cord, eventually severing the connection between the two. Most patients die from the resulting respiratory failure less than two weeks after symptoms begin.

    The threat of contracting an N. fowleri infection is remote (vastly more people die every year from drowning), but you can take some measures to lower your risk even further. Cope recommends using nose plugs and not immersing your head fully under water when swimming. She also counsels against kicking up sediment, which can shake the amoeba loose.

    More effective treatments may be on the horizon. Last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Miltefosine, originally intended as an anti-cancer treatment. In 2013, two people in the U.S. survived N. fowleri when they took the drug (and others) soon after being infected.

    And last month, scientists sequenced the amoeba’s genome for the first time. Their insights may help us understand what makes it so virulent and point the way to better treatments.

    Until then, hold your nose.

    Wave Good-Bye

    Wave Good-Bye


    St. Elizabeth, Georgia, offers charm, Southern hospitality–and the occasional murder. This time, when a new hair salon tries to steal business, it’s someone’s life that gets cut short… Violetta’s salon is up in arms. Business is dead. Snippets, a big box haircutting chain, has opened in St. Elizabeth, undercutting prices and luring away loyal customers. Violetta’s daughter, hairdresser Grace Terhune, is shocked to discover that it’s her old high school rival Lisa Butterworth who’s behind the big sweep–and Grace isn’t going to take this sitting down. Snippets’ cold-blooded prized employee is doing wonders with Violetta’s client list. According to Lisa, it’s just business–until a bitter confrontation leaves Grace more than frustrated, and Lisa less than alive. Now Grace is the prime suspect in her rival’s murder. And only her friends at Violetta’s can save her–before the charge proves permanent. BEAUTY TIPS AND TRICKS INCLUDED

    Volk’s Game

    Volk’s Game


    Two men are massacred in an expensive Moscow bar. But the bullets miss their target: Alexei Volkovoy – Volk for short. He’s a deadly, battle-hardened veteran of Russia’s brutal war in Chechnya, and he serves two masters: Maxim, a psychotic mafia kingpin; and a military man known only as the General. By his side is Valya, an exotic beauty and the most dangerous weapon in Volk’s arsenal. Together they are commissioned to steal a long-lost masterpiece from St Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum. Volk must choose which powerful man he will betray in order to escape with the painting and with his life. ‘Volk’s Game’ announces Alexei Volkovoy as the boldest, most unforgettable hero of a new generation.
