In this widely hailed book, NPR correspondent Tom Gjelten fuses the story of the Bacardi family and their famous rum business with Cuba's tumultuous experience over the last 150 years to produce a deeply entertaining historical narrative. The company Facundo Bacardi launched in Cuba in 1862 brought worldwide fame to the island, and in the decades that followed his Bacardi descendants participated in every aspect of Cuban life. With his intimate account of their struggles and adventures across five generations, Gjelten brings to life the larger story of Cuba's fight for freedom, its tortured relationship with America, the rise of Fidel Castro, and the violent division of the Cuban nation.

Eco-mindfulness How to combine environmentalism and spirituality to attain a state of eco-mindfulness and sustainable living What can you do for the environment? Do you find yourself wondering what on Earth you can do about the very serious environmental challenges we face on our planet today? Do you worry there’s nothing any one person can do that will make a difference? Most people say that they would like to do something to make the world a better place, but they just don’t believe they have the time, energy, money or power to do anything that will make a real difference. Are you willing to devote 20 minutes a week to find out? Environmental activist Cheryl Leutjen has the planet’s back and is betting you do too. Her powerful book of inspired ideas and eco-mindfulness calls upon us all to Love Earth Now. Conservation and sustainable living: Love Earth Now invites us to explore our own thoughts, feelings and to check in with internal guidance about the waste and negative environment impacts we see on a daily basis. While most of us can’t stop the Arctic icepack from melting, we can decide to make better choices like less packaging with our purchases, walking more and driving less, planting organic veggies in the front yard instead of a water-wasting lawn, and even going as green as possible at work and at home. Does your office lack a recycling and composting program? Do the research and start one yourself! Each chapter concludes with a “Diving In” section, a simple and immediate exercise, much like a guided meditation, to prompt us toward out own sustainable solutions. Practice Eco-mindfulness: Eco-mindfulness moments provide the opportunity to reflect and discover that one thing we can do to make a difference today and for all our tomorrows. Author Cheryl Leutjen’s book of planetary self-help and eco-mindfulness is a deeply thoughtful and lucid look at the state of our “big blue marble,” our beautiful earth. It's also a sourcebook of direct actions ─ large and small ─ we can all take to ensure our children and their children’s children have a healthy future on this planet. Drawing from her experiences as an engineering geologist, environmental law attorney, small shop owner, and mindfulness practitioner, Cheryl also reminds us about the importance of simplicity. She points out how all our possessions and the constant shopping are no better for us than they are for the planet itself. They contribute to landfills and create a tech-tethered society that is increasingly isolated. Both helpful and hopeful, Love Earth Now is brimming with creative suggestions we can all try that will get us closer to a sustainable lifestyle, one day at a time. What You’ll Learn Inside: • Discover your own path to living more earth-conscientiously • How to practice mindfulness exercises to help you discover your own eco-mindfulness • Discover what you have the time, talents and resources to do to care for Earth • Practice ways to process the news of extinctions, changing climate and environmental devastations in the world • Discover how to demonstrate your commitment to a more verdant, healthy, peaceful planet without making yourself crazy

Amazon Hot New Release! Silence the Voice of Self Doubt While it’s easy to believe that the main barriers to being more productive, generating and developing ideas, and doing our best work are external (how many times have you vented to a coworker about “hitting a wall?”), the truth is that these frustrating blocks are most often in our own heads. What is the entity responsible for this? The Inner Critic. The Inner Critic is relentless, driving us toward perfectionism and fanning the flames of self doubt, self-sabotage, and self criticism while dousing the sparks of creative ideas before they have a chance to develop. It encourages rationalization to help us feel better about snuffing out these sparks and keeps us believing that it’s saving us from rejection, judgment, and failure. Worst of all, it makes us think all of this is our own idea. How do we break free of something that feels like it’s a natural part of who we are? Denise Jacobs, Speaker, Author and Chief Creativity Evangelist of The Creative Dose, who speaks at web conferences and consults with tech companies worldwide, maps a way out in her latest work, Banish Your Inner Critic. This book is your manual and toolkit to help you not only reclaim your creativity and productivity, but bump it up to extreme productivity, clearing a path for you to find your zone more often – and stay in it longer. Jacobs’ guidebook will provide instant relief and lasting insight, showing you how to: • Identify and quiet the voice of self-sabotage in your head • Master three power practices to transform how you relate to yourself and your creativity forever • Overcome the fear of not knowing enough or not being original enough • Free yourself from comparisons, overwhelm, and self-criticism • Transform your self-talk into a tool for success • Generate more ideas than ever before • Embrace your expertise and share your brilliance with the world Calling on neuroscience, psychology, mindfulness principles, and self-compassion research, deftly blended with personal storytelling, Jacobs presents approachable and immediately applicable techniques for putting your Inner Critic in its place. Banish Your Inner Critic will help you make your creative process more fluid and develop practices to cultivate innovation. When your next creative idea sparks into being, you will be ready to nurture it into a dazzling light of success. Banish your Inner Critic to start doing your best work, achieving excellence, and contributing meaningfully to the world!

Restaurant Diet Plan The ultimate guide for people who want to dine out guilt-free! The Restaurant Diet, offers a diet plan that takes the pressure off of dieters who love to eat out. In The Restaurant Diet, author Fred Bollaci, who lost 150 pounds (from 330): • Teaches readers how to read a menu • Explains how to ask important questions of the restaurant staff • Gives guidance on how to have food customized to your dietary needs • Provides insights into converting this into healthy eating at home Eat out to your heart's content and not be overweight: As Fred teaches readers how to eat out and lose weight, he reveals the real secret: It’s not about preparing “clean” food at home, or going “whole” and excluding wheat, sugar, and dairy. Nor is it about counting calories or grams. It’s about WHY one overeats in the first place. Fred reveals his story of growing up in an Italian family, and how his parents’ divorce led to his eating compulsions. He tried every fad diet, but Fred was searching for a lasting solution. With the help of his doctor, a nutritionist, a trainer, and a psychologist, he was able to devise a four-phase diet and exercise plan. Fred proves that if he can do it, anyone can. He has kept the weight off for six years, running four marathons — he looks great, feels great, and can enjoy great food and drink wherever he is. Guilt-free restaurant dining: Featuring recipes from America’s most noted restaurant chefs, as well as original recipes from Fred’s own kitchen, The Restaurant Diet is for the 19 million Americans who love to eat out on a regular basis — and the 38% who are overweight.

This volume is a unique contribution to Latin American studies because it underscores the essential role that women have played in the arenas of modern and contemporary art. This book] provides valuable and much-needed assistance to the researcher. (From the foreword by Elizabeth Ferrer) With more than 1,500 references on nearly 800 women "Latin American Women Artists, Kahlo and Look Who Else" pays tribute to the rich and multifaceted artistic accomplishments of women in and from 20th-century Latin America. Frida Kahlo has until recently dominated the interest of scholars, curators, and the public to the point of almost eclipsing the achievements of other artists from the region. This selectively annotated bibliography begins systematically to identify other women -- painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers, performance artists, and others -- who have made significant contributions to the history of art in the region. The first section, the main part of the work, consists of individual artists grouped in an alphabetical country arrangement. Artists in each country are listed A-Z, as are the citations about them. Annotations are descriptive and highlight, among other details, the presence of biographical and professional development information in the analyzed materials. A section of general works arranged by country follows, consisting principally of periodical and monographic literature that deals with numerous women, and a listing of the women mentioned in the cited materials. The volume has two appendices. The first is an analyzed list of 77 collective exhibitions in which works by these women have been presented. The second appendix groups the artists by country, allowing for an in-brief look at all of the artists identified in the bibliography. The name index references artists to the main section by country code and also includes entries for authors, curators, and exhibition catalogue essayists.
