Youth financial education is an urgent issue, and author Sabrina Lamb believes that African American parents first must reeducate themselves about finances to make sure the next generation does not fall into the spending trap that can be a family legacy. The lack of a healthy financial education has generational impact, causing families to be financially vulnerable, squander financial resources, and fail at wealth accumulation. With step-by-step advice and exercises for parents and young people, "Do I Look Like an ATM?" sets out to establish new financial behavior so children will avoid the personal economic problems that have plagued the culture. The book guides parents through self-examination of their financial habits. By performing the exercises in this book and having candid discussions, parents can, together with their children, become engaged citizens in the world of money. With new financial traditions and a better understanding money and its meaning, the next generation will realize the true power of wealth and use their money wisely.

Why Does Love Hurt So Good? It’s hard to explain why we stay with someone who isn’t treating or loving them the way they should. Staying, some would say is foolish, unhealthy and not normal, and they’re right, but for you to understand the why, you must experience loving someone first hand because until you do, you have no idea the power that love has over many of us. Within these stories, you will read and experience what people will do to have someone love them. Sex, lies, deception, betrayal, abuse, and infidelity were just a few of the traits used to obtain what they thought would make them happy in their relationship. As you read, you will, at some point, have to rethink what you thought you knew about love because, contrary to what many think and believe, not all love is good love that we receive from those we love. Readers are talking: Avis Parter, from Fayetteville, North Carolina, says, “It truly touched my soul, I saw myself in it. I loved it; I cried because it was so my life. I needed this book three years ago.” Deborah Antrum, St. Louis, Missouri, says, “I read your book, and I love it! I let my daughter read also. I am looking forward to what you have in the making; you have my FULL support.” Pastor Ricardo Manuel, from Savannah, Georgia, says, “The book is a great read. I recommend that you get a copy and read it for yourself!”

Description :


An Iraq veteran in Beijing finds herself in danger as shadowy enemies, both online and off, abound in this “electrifying thriller” (Publishers Weekly). Iraq vet Ellie McEnroe, injured in combat and recently divorced, is lying low in Beijing. After two years living in China on a semi-expired visa, she’s acquired decent language skills, a sometimes boyfriend, and the hope that someday she can forget what she saw in battle—horrors that haunt her every time she closes her eyes. She’s a stranger in a strange land, her wounded leg is killing her, and her neighbor keeps threatening to report her to the Public Security Bureau, but she’s hanging in there. For now. Then a chance connection with an Uighur man—a Chinese Muslim minority—plunges her into a world of mysterious government operatives, art dealers, and a dark organization operating in the shadows of a popular online game. When her lover—the artist Lao Zhang—disappears, Ellie needs to figure out who she can trust, and fast. Because the trauma of her past may pale in comparison to the danger she now faces. This taut, gritty thriller brings the complexities of modern urban China visceral life. “Few writers would be up to the challenge of blending the worlds of urban China, Iraq, and a virtual online kingdom—but Lisa Brackmann wildly succeeds. Prepare to taste the smog, smell the noodles, and rub the Beijing dust between your fingers.” —Eliot Pattison, Edgar Award–winning author of The Skull Mantra

She quickly learns that even in rapidly changing Brooklyn, Brownsville remains much as it was. It is still poor, it is still tough, and it still breeds fighters and gangs. Doing field research, Erica stops in at the landmark local library and meets Savanna, a young woman who is the pride of her mother and her bosses, and headed for an elite college and a future. A few days later, Savanna is found beaten and left for dead. Her anguished mother is everywhere, insisting someone knows something. After a massive, angry demonstration, a young girlfriend of Savanna's is found dead, too. Is there a connection? Did perfect Savanna have a few secrets? Erica's curious. But she's focused on the 1930s and has located a few women who are happy to share memories. Two are childhood friends who disagree on much but guard secrets, too—ones kept for a lifetime. Never one to resist looking deeper than her research requires, Erica keeps encountering an apparent derelict white man, a vengeful rejected girlfriend, the role of boxing as a way out of poverty, and fading evidence of long-ago crimes.

Las Vegas’ Scammers, Schemers and Dreamers is a behind the scenes, inside look at life in another world: The Casino. What goes on in this world within a world? How do people really act? What does it take to get escorted out and told not to come back? What does it take to have the police or the Gaming Commission called? My very first call from Surveillance came on my second day on the job. I was informed that a customer (for lack of a printable word) pulled out hair from his arm and put it on his eggs. After I was convinced this was not a joke, I became shocked, angry, and curious all at the same time. I couldn’t believe someone would do this to get out of paying for their $1.99 Steak & Eggs special. My normal thinking for the past twenty years had been I wonder if we’ll have any problems today. A very short time later, it changed to I wonder how many we’ll have today. The stories you’re about to read couldn’t possibly be made up. They were written with a sarcastic and humorous tone. Because if I took them to heart, you would be visiting me at the “home.” You’ll also read stories about gambling problems, including my own, which are not so funny. That’s the reason I need you to buy this book. I just might be able to break even. I can almost guarantee that you too are going to be shocked and amazed at human behavior in a casino. I can also almost guarantee that if you have even the slightest sense of humor, you’ll be laughing and enjoying this book. Frank Garibaldi

Reality-Based Parenting: How Parents of African Descent Can Cultivate Loving Relationships With their Children is a thoughtful, inspirational, sensitive and culturally-driven how-to manual designed for parents in the African diaspora who long to know themselves. The cumulative effect of self-discovery (development of self-awareness and acquisition of self-knowledge) is the transmission of cultural and spiritual heritage to the next generation. As a developmental and transformational process, Reality-Based Parenting is culturally specific, not universal. This is based on the multi-cultural premise of fullness before overflow. That is to say a group must recognize and affirm itself before it is able to share and appreciate the differences of others. Cultural competency then is the distinguishing characteristic of reality-based parenting. Through this book, parents are enabled to use what they have their cultural strengths to obtain what they want: a tested plan for nurturing children, a formula for instilling disciplining in the young, a model for psycho-social recovery. Conscientious readers are inspired to apply the books content to activities of daily living so that our sons may flourish in their youth like well-nurtured plants; and our daughters may be like cornerstones, polished after the similitude of a palace (Psalms 144: 12-14).

Hugo Xavier, a French playboy hell-bent on possessing Isobel, a gorgeous Greek pauper. Set in Monaco, this is a story about a man who had it all but his past ensures he couldn’t acquire what he yearned the most…and a woman, whose heart wasn’t up for bargaining, no matter the cost. A tug-of war of seduction, of wills, of pride. A whirlwind affair that will change both of their lives forever. This bundle includes three novels: Bartered, Unhinged & Vanquished. BARTERED: A woman could be… Everything. Anything. Nothing. I was a connoisseur of beautiful things, women included. I didn’t just have one, but three—all exotic, stunning and would do anything I asked. My life was grand. It was perfect and I was content with it all, until a little minx came along. The second our eyes clashed, giving me a glimpse of her violet blue depths that had a mixture of stubbornness and will but with a hint of something else… Choices were made. Decisions were done. And for the very first time in my life, I was challenged with something risky, merely igniting the animal in me. UNHINGED: He came into my life in the most unconventional way, turning my world upside down when I least expected it. He was my dark knight amidst the chaos that was my life. His persistence in conquering me tested my resistance, and at one point, I thought I had prevailed. However, the immediate turn of events left me shocked and alone. He left me when I wasn't ready to walk away. For months, I searched for him, stalking the internet for any news of him, hoping that one day I would get to see him again. Nevertheless, he was great at covering his tracks, and I was left resorting to tactics I hadn't considered before. I simply wanted another chance. He had wanted me once. He could want me again, couldn't he? He left a gaping hole in my life, and I knew nothing could ever fix it, except him. I was will-ing to put myself out there for him to relish, criticize, and devour at his will. The heart wants what it wants, and it wanted Hugo Xavier. VANQUISHED: Puzzled by Hugo’s mercurial attitude, the damning bed of flowers and Julien’s warning, Isobel found herself in chilling territory. Stuck between vowing to find the real reason behind it all and fearing for her life, Isobel must summon the courage to fight for the man she loved or lose everything she held precious in her heart.

Description :


Building a Learning Culture in America takes an incisive, no-holds-barred look at how America embraced and cultivated a culture of learning in the past, how that culture declined in the sixties and seventies, and what must be done to regain it. From political gridlock to systemic discrimination, Chavous details the many ways education today is off track, and cites specific examples of what Americans might do to reform it.Part memoir and part manifesto, this is a frank, fascinating, and personal account of Chavous' experience as a politician working to enact school choice in Washington, DC, and throughout the United States. During the course of his political career, he has seen political skirmishes and party scuffles interfere with the United States' ability to improve its educational system. These conflicts did not cause the problem; they were merely a result. The true problem was more basic: the decline of America's learning culture.This pivotal work calls for Americans to unite in making the changes needed to re-establish a learning culture as an inherent piece of the American national fabric, and tells us how to begin.
