Sixteen for '16

A progressive agenda for a better America?

Sixteen for '16

The progressive movement is on the march in America and this accessible book points toward a destination. Sixteen for '16 offers a new agenda for the 2016 US election crafted around sixteen core principles that all progressives can believe in, from securing jobs to saving the Earth. Decades of destructive social, economic, and political policies have devastated poor, working, and even middle class American communities. It is now clear to everyone that the emperor has no clothes, that harsh austerity does not bring prosperity, and that the wealthy have no intention to see their wealth trickle down. Each generation is no longer better off than the ones that came before. America now needs jobs, infrastructure, a rededication to public education, universal healthcare, higher taxes on higher incomes, a more secure Social Security, an end to the rule of the bankers, stronger unions, a living minimum wage, better working conditions, an end to the prison state, secure reproductive rights, voter equality, a more moral foreign policy, a more sane environmental policy, and action on global warming. Sixteen for '16 is a manifesto which makes the argument for each of these positions, clearly, concisely, and supported by hard data. As ambitious as these policies are, they represent a beginning, not an end. The progressive agenda laid out in Sixteen for '16 charts a realistic path toward a better tomorrow.

Revolutionary Powercycles

The Science of Sweat

Revolutionary Powercycles

It's YOU against Lead! Who is going to win? Sweet you? Or Rotten it? I'd like to tell you how it can and should be you! It's a pretty big deal too, since if you back down and choose not to fight now, you will probably only need to fight twice as hard in the future when it bites you in the culo somehow. Then you'll have placed forth twice the effort only to only fall twice as hard in defeat in the end, whereas now, you can beat it with relative ease with just a little concerted effort and concentration. Sweating has officially arrived as that big new Diet for success! It is here, and it's here to stay! For its basis was well over needed, and its relevancy never before so apparent.

You can grow your body, mind, and spirit to unseen heights just by starting now as opposed to later! I've personally taken it to the extreme with over 2800 Powercycle68 sessions to conclude that we are built to go through a self-healing process with hard physical exertion. Perception, Science, Facts, Mathematics, and Testimony all come together to show just how undermined this process really is. The conclusive magic of the Powercycle 68 Gold Zone is ridiculous on just how well it heels the mind, and positively influences all your bodies' core functions. If it didn't, would I be standing next to you now with a silly picture of me before and after a session? No! I wouldn't. Everything changes for the better, everything! With ease as well, as you become an upgraded SuperYOU from completely balancing out your body. This is going to be HUGE for the future health goals of everyone worldwide. The all natural miracle drug has set sail on curing all who embrace!

The Evacuation of Civilians from Burma

Analysing the 1942 Colonial Disaster

The Evacuation of Civilians from Burma

The string of military defeats during 1942 marked the end of British hegemony in Southeast Asia, finally destroying the myth of British imperial invincibility. The Japanese attack on Burma led to a hurried and often poorly organized evacuation of Indian and European civilians from the country. The evacuation was a public humiliation for the British and marked the end of their role in Burma. The Evacuation of Civilians from Burma investigates the social and political background to the evacuation, and the consequences of its failure. Utilizing unpublished letters, diaries, memoirs and official reports, Michael Leigh provides the first comprehensive account of the evacuation, analyzing its source in the structures of colonial society, fractured race relations and in the turbulent politics of colonial Burma.

Yet against all odds, pinned under tons of asphalt, steel and rock for 8 long hours, she survived. Her rescue would mark the beginning of yet another chapter of nightmarish terror and trauma to face that might otherwise cripple her psychologically for the rest of her life. A Kink in My Armour tells her incredible storythe abuse she suffered in her dysfunctional family even before the horrifying train crash; how she, a mere child, served as protector for her younger siblings; and how she survived all of this to become a high powered professional business woman now living a happy life with her family. An empowering true tale of one woman who overcame adversity in its harsh, raw and naked form, A Kink in My Armour also tells of sadness and pain, of true inspiration, love, compassion, and empathy. It is an inspiring testament that a person can live through four decades of horrifying abuse and still move forward to lead a more positive and fulfilled life.
