Sharing with Others:An Introduction to Financial Literacy Mattie Reynolds
For the first time ever, Ali Reynolds and Joanna Brady, New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance´s popular series sleuths, join forces to solve a terrifying crime in this exclusive novella that has everything you want in a thriller - pause-resisting action, breathtaking twists and turns, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and...Legos. ´´A semi´s gone over the embankment.´´ The call wakes Sheriff Joanna Brady in the middle of the night, but what brings her fully alert is the rest of the story. The driver didn´t drift off to sleep and cross the center line - he was shot, multiple times, by someone with serious firepower. And when the truck crashed through the guardrail, its payload wound up scattered all over the road - boxes upon boxes of Legos. Legos that are being tracked by B. Simpson´s security firm to reduce black-market sales - and Ali Reynolds is just the woman to get to the bottom of the crime. She has the tech and the intel to follow the money (or, in this case, the Legos), which makes her a valuable asset to Joanna´s team. Soon these two strong women realize they´re not just sharing a case, they´re kindred spirits - which is paramount, because the killer they´re up against is anything but child´s play. 1.

This volume explores the unique challenges midwifery graduates face as they move into practice. It identifies the similarities and differences in midwifery education, regulation, and clinical practice faced by graduate midwives in all continents, examining the various support systems available for graduate midwives in many countries, and identifying the common strategies (formal and informal) and approaches that have proved to be effective in supporting midwifery graduates. The book volume brings together the experiences of new midwives starting out in registered practice, to share the challenges and triumphs during their transition to confident practitioners. It identifies, explains and details both established and innovative new mechanisms in place to support new midwives in each country, and examines the effects the experiences of transitioning to practice may have on future professional practice, resilience and sustainability. Lack of support during the new-graduate transition to practice has been associated with early attrition from the midwifery profession. Stress, disillusion, and horizontal violence have been identified as factors that influence midwifery attrition rates. Exploration of the various support mechanisms currently available in different countries may stimulate the sharing of best practices in providing new midwives with transition to practice programmes and generate further research. Each chapter is harmonized to facilitate the comparison between countries, and the maternity services context is explained using each country´s specific legislation, regulation and registration of midwives. The preparation of midwifery students for qualified practice is outlined to explain how midwifery students are trained and socialized into the profession, mentored in their placements and then transitioned to registered midwife status. This book appeals to midwives, managers, educators, and newly graduated interested in international midwifery practice.
From my own research and from my dad´s precious teaching I´ve extracted eight basic dimensions of wellness: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual. I can almost hear my dad´s voice teaching me correct principles in each of these dimensions. This book is about what I am learning. It´s about eight things to do to get life right. It´s like a wheel with eight spokes. If just one of the spokes is broken or missing, the whole ride is bumpy at best - and ruined at worst. I call them the Wellness 8. In life, wellness is more than just being healthy. It´s about doing well and even more about being well. I could be physically toned and have lots of money and be the life of the party and still have a miserable life. Each of the Wellness 8 is about the kind of person I am, not just the stuff I do or the things I have. We begin down inside the human heart with Emotional Wellness. I believe that healthy living begins with the emotions. People who are sharing, contributing and making a difference are emotionally well. People in emotional turmoil can´t get their lives right in any other dimension, but once they are at peace inside, they can move forward with greater ease. The environmental dimension is all about managing your personal surroundings to bypass the negative (people, thoughts, media, self-talk) and to increase the positive (serving and sharing with others). It necessarily follows emotional wellness. My emotional life is like a well of water. If it stagnates, I´ll be a source of poison to the outside world. 1. Language: English.
