BEWARE THE STRAW MAN

THE SCIENCE DOG EXPLORES DOG TRAINING FACT AND FICTION

BEWARE THE STRAW MAN

The Science Dog (aka Linda Case) takes a skeptic's look at many commonly held beliefs about dog behavior and training. Each of the book's 32 essays explores a question posed by leading researchers and provides detailed and thought-provoking analysis of their findings. Learn how dogs react to different training methods, discover the pitfalls associated with the use of extinction, and read about new studies that evaluate programs that communities use to keep children safe from dog bites. Other essays explore owners' ability to understand their dog's emotions, how people perceive and train small dogs, and if standard behavior tests used by animal shelters to assess dogs' adoptability hold up under scrutiny. Whether you are a professional trainer, work with dogs in shelters or rescue groups, own a dog-related business or train your dog for fun, the information provided in “Beware the Straw Man” will be of interest and of value to you. Be forewarned though; this book does not provide the reader with pat answers. Rather it presents the current state of the science of dog training and encourages you to decide for yourself how to proceed.

She earned her B.S. in Animal Science at Cornell University and her M.S. in Canine/Feline Nutrition at the University of Illinois.

Beware the Witch

Beware the Witch

In almost every page of Beware the Witch, something supernatural happens. Dont be concerned if you dont believe in the supernatural. Just suspend your disbelief and go along with the ride. This novel is meant to be a roller coaster, not an exhibit. The goal is to thrill, excite, amaze, and maybe even get you to cry out in horror or perhaps laugh. Meet the three main characters. The witch is a spectacularly beautiful, hypnotically alluring, powerful, vengeful, and very dangerous woman with dark and destructive secrets. The man with six forms of ESP is the hero. At first, he is drawn to the witch. However, he later decides that he must kill her because he wants to prevent his new love from succumbing to the temptation of becoming a witch and giving allegiance to His Satanic Majesty. This new love interest is caught between her fascination with both witchcraft and sensuality and her drive to do no harm to herself or others. She dislikes her humdrum, repetitious, not-very-sober life. Then again, you cant simply flirt with powerful forces. You need to be in or out, committed or not. You must choose one or the other: God or the devil.

Moskovitz on Appeal: Advanced Insights From An Appellate Advocate Who Wins, 2016 Edition

Moskovitz on Appeal: Advanced Insights From An Appellate Advocate Who Wins, 2016 Edition

Most lawyers see the appellate court as foreign territory, an arena for quiet, scholarly debate far different from the rough-and-tumble, think-on-your-feet type of practice common in the trial courts. Because of this perception (largely correct), lawyers are often uncomfortable writing briefs and arguing before appellate courts, and frequently their primary concern is simply to get through the ordeal without looking foolish. They look at other briefs or court rules to see that their briefs are in the "proper form", and then just do their best to present a respectable argument. This book is intended for the lawyer who wants to get beyond looking OK. It's meant for the lawyer who wants victory for the client. This book is not about the form of an appeal; it is about the substance of an appeal. This book is about how to win. The key is to examine the thinking process of appellate justices. That's where the action is. Figure out how The Deciders decide cases. Try to select appeals in cases that the Deciders might like. Then structure your presentation to fit how the Deciders decide. That's the way to win, and that's what this book is about.

Ruler of the World

Empire of the Moghul

Ruler of the World

Alex Rutherford's internationally bestselling series continues with the story of the third great Moghul emperor, Akbar, leader of a triumphant dynasty that contained the seeds of its own destruction. Akbar, ruler of a sixth of the world's people, colossally rich and utterly ruthless, was a contemporary of Elizabeth I, but infinitely more powerful. He extended his empire over much of Asia, skillfully commanding tens of thousands of men, elephants, and innovative technology. And despite the unimaginable bloodshed that resulted from it, his rule was based on universal religious tolerance. However, Akbar's home life was more complicated. He defied family, nobles, and mullahs to marry a beautiful Rajput princess, whose people he had conquered; but she hated Akbar and turned Salim, his eldest son, against him. What's more, as any Moghul prince could inherit his father's crown and become emperor, his sons were brought up to be intensely competitive and suspicious of each other: to see each other as rivals for the greatest prize of all. And, as Salim grew to manhood, the relationship between father and son became tainted by rebellion and competition to be the greatest Moghul of them all.
