Tony Blair always claimed that history would judge his decision to invade Iraq. This revelatory and at times jaw-dropping account of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan reveals the truth about our soldiers' battle for survival. Jack Fairweather details the cost of the war, set agaisnt a backdrop of misunderstanding, beaurocracy and an overwhelming clash of cultures. From the embattled British outposts and insurgent hideouts of southern Iraq to the intense debates the war provoked inside 10 Downing Street and the Whitehouse, here is the terrifying truth about Britain’s involvement in Iraq.
In every crisis situation, children are the greatest victims. Physically weak, they are often the first to succumb to hunger, disease, and dehydration. Innocent to the workings and failings of the world, they are unable to understand why there is danger, why there are people who want to hurt them, or why they must leave, perhaps quite suddenly, and abandon their schools, their friends, and their home.In this companion series to Exodus, Sebastiao Salgado presents 90 portraits of the youngest exiles, migrants, and refugees. His subjects are from different countries, victims to different crises, but they are all on the move, and all under the age of 15. Through his extensive refugee reportage, what struck Salgado about these boys and girls was not only the implicit innocence in their suffering but also their radiant reserves of energy and enthusiasm, even in the most miserable of circumstances. From roadside refuges in Angola and Burundi to city slums in Brazil and sprawling camps in Lebanon and Iraq, the children remained children: they were quick to laugh as much as to cry, they played soccer, splashed in dirty water, got up to mischief with friends, and were typically ecstatic at the prospect of being photographed.
I turned off my brain. It was time to hunt. I took a deep breath, drawing in the scent of the blood inside the humans below. They weren't the only humans around, but they were the closest. Who you were going to hunt was the kind of decision you had to make before you scented your prey. It was too late now to choose anything.
John Mangieri Power Thinking. How the Way You Think Can Change the Way You Lead
Most individuals were never formally taught thinking skills and, as a result, are using processes that were developed during childhood to reach decisions and solve problems. Thus, in an era of knowledge explosion, organizational performance accountability, and rapid change caused by technology, leaders and managers are trying to succeed using thinking patterns developed before they were twelve years old. Power Thinking offers leaders the information they need to evaluate their current thinking proficiencies, determine areas for improvement, and enhance their thinking skills. The book includes the Yale Assessment of Thinking, a standardized assessment measure that enables readers to determine their abilities in the cognitive domains found to be crucial to being an outstanding leader.

Roger Thompson Beyond Duty. Life on the Frontline in Iraq
Under the blazing Iraqi sun in the summer of 2007, Shannon Meehan, a lieutenant in the U.S. Army, ordered a strike that would take the lives of innocent Iraqi civilians. He thought he was doing the right thing. He thought he was protecting his men. He thought that he would only kill the enemy, but in the ruins of the strike, he discovers his mistake and uncovers a tragedy. For most of his deployment in Iraq, Lt. Meehan felt that he had been made for a life in the military. A tank commander, he worked in the violent Diyala Province, successfully fighting the insurgency by various Sunni and Shia factions. He was celebrated by his senior officers and decorated with medals. But when the U.S. surge to retake Iraq in 2006 and 2007 finally pushed into Baqubah, a town virtually entirely controlled by al Qaida, Meehan would make the decision that would change his life. This is the true story of one soldier's attempt to reconcile what he has done with what he felt he had to do. Stark and devastating, it recounts first-hand the reality of a new type of warfare that remains largely unspoken and forgotten on the frontlines of Iraq.
This book was an experimental study which involves evaluation of Microleakage in control group & an experimental group. The Tooth Mousse which was used in the study is the sole medium for CPP-ACP. Requests were made to Cadbury world Ltd ,the sole distributor of CPP-ACP to provide the CPP-ACP in powder form for research use,but failed due to legal polices. The study revealed that any alteration during the mixing of Dental Material lead to its deterioration of physical & chemical properties. In the literature review,many studies were quoted which involves mixing of Glass Ionomer Cement with CPP-ACP & various properties were checked for research purpose. Lastly,I acknowledge my teachers,batch-mates & family for giving me support to complete the research work for fulfilment of Post-graduation program. thank you all....
“My Russia, my love, how long can we suffer?…” (Alexander Blok) In 1991 the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics collapsed. Revival of the new Russia began with a severe economic crisis, a result of so-called “Perestroika”, initiated by the first president of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev. Russia’s immense, bottomless natural resources were flowing out of the country. During the reign of the “Yeltsin’s clan” factories, plants, gas and oil fields had been privatized and sold for nothing. New figures appeared on Russia’s political and financial arena: Berezovsky, Abramovich, Potanin, Khodorkovsky, Luzhkov, Sobchak, Gaidar and others. Due to their efforts national natural resources were plundered and ended up in foreign lands. After Yeltsin, Russia entered the next stage – financial. Budget money had been cut to pieces and those who were cutting it received up to 30 % in kickbacks. Russian politicians, businessmen and bankers were moving their capitals to offshore companies in Switzerland, UK, UAE and on the islands. Russia’s primary resources along with the “financial flow” were gradually settling abroad. Many readers would like to find out who and how transfers huge amounts of money from Russia to foreign countries.
I was invited to the studio. They were making a political TV show on the channel called “284–467”. Non-Shuster was the anchorman of the show. On that TV channel they were giving false information rather often but actually it can be said about all the TV channels nowadays. They were deceiving their audiences. They were showing only entertainment programs and nothing else…In a while I found myself in the studio. Shaitan came with me. He just couldn’t let me go alone…
The widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle shares their private story: an unforgettable testament to the power of love and faith in the face of war and unimaginable loss--and a moving tribute to a man whose true heroism ran even deeper than the legend In early 2013, Taya Kyle and her husband Chris were the happiest they ever had been. Their decade-long marriage had survived years of war that took Chris, a U.S. Navy SEAL, away from Taya and their two children for agonizingly long stretches while he put his life on the line in many major battles of the Iraq War. After struggling to readjust to life out of the military, Chris had found new purpose in redirecting his lifelong dedication to service to supporting veterans and their families. Their love had deepened, and, most special of all, their family was whole, finally. Then, the unthinkable. On February 2, 2013, Chris and his friend Chad Littlefield were killed while attempting to help a troubled vet. The life Chris and Taya fought so hard to build together was shattered. In an instant, Taya became a single parent of two. A widow. A young woman facing the rest of her life without the man she loved. Chris and Taya’s remarkable story has captivated millions through Clint Eastwood’s blockbuster, Academy Award-winning film American Sniper, starring Bradley Cooper as Chris and Sienna Miller as Taya, and because of Chris’s bestselling memoir, in which Taya contributed passages that formed the book’s emotional core. Now, with trusted collaborator Jim DeFelice, Taya writes in never-before-told detail about the hours, days, and months after his shocking death when grief threatened to overwhelm her. Then there were wearying battles to protect her husband’s legacy and reputation. And yet throughout, friendship, family, and a deepening faith were lifelines that sustained her and the kids when the sorrow became too much. Two years after her husband’s tragic death, Taya has found renewed meaning and connection to Chris by advancing their shared mission of “serving those who serve others,” particularly military and first-responder families. She and the children now are embracing a new future, one that honors the past but also looks forward with hope, gratitude, and joy. American Wife is one of the most remarkable memoirs of the year -- a universal chronicle of love and heartbreak, service and sacrifice, faith and purpose that will inspire every reader.
