Simple Pushes presents a method for finding balance in life. This balance has been described as the interplay of yin and yang from the ancient Chinese, to the classical Greek inscription ‘Nothing in excess,’ to the modern day balances of feminine and masculine.
Beginning with an exercise of determining whether you push or pull on the steering wheel of your car, you can become aware of your unconscious habit of pushing or pulling in life. Pushing and pulling are not inherently good or bad, one not better than the other. Sometimes it is appropriate to push and sometimes it is better to pull.
People whose habit is pushing act without considering the circumstances or the impact of their actions upon others. People whose tendency is pulling think and feel too much instead of acting. These chronic habits lead to imbalance and create barriers to leading a fulfilled life.
This booklet contains an idea for gaining insight into why you do what you do and why others do what they do. It then gives examples of how to use simple pushes to achieve balance. This book is a short and simple read, yet may lead to profound changes in your life.

Pain is something Carol puts her hands on every day. With training and experience, it is sometimes obvious that the pain that troubles a person has roots deeper than the pain that presents.
Sometimes, it is quite simply a postural fault, especially as we all crunch ourselves in front of computers for hours on end, whether we are working or playing.
Carol has been doing hands on work with clients for over 20 years and became a licensed massage therapist in 2006 with well over 2000 hours of training and thousands more in experience and learning. Her desire to help with her clients' healing probably stems from a family history of migraines, her mother's background in nursing and her father's in spiritual care.
This is a straight forward look at the most common, "every day" injuries and pains that tend to present in the offices of doctors, physios and other manual therapists.
Carol writes in a light hearted, clear style. Medical terminology is explained simply and some of the most obvious reasons for pain are illuminated. Headaches, knee pain, and back pain are common to many people. This book helps you to pinpoint what's hurting and why.

He is currently writing a short story collection called Stories From The Abyss and a novel about expelling the Russians from Crimea. He holds a Master of Arts in Military Studies from American Military University.
"I have twenty short stories and three novels in my head!"
Korea x2 (Book One)
The Korean CIA Director is killed by a North Korean assassin. Counterfeiting, drugs, and weapons of terror finance the North Korean government. Three Air Force Pararescuemen and a CIA Officer join with the South Korean 707th Brigade, a team of female assassins, to form a team, known only by President Reagan and CIA Director Casey, as "the Silent Six." Their task: the destruction of the North Korean gangster regime. “The Silent Six” is the ultimate Special Operations Team.
Silent Six (Book Two)
Author David Joseph brings his most intriguing thriller yet—a terrifying story about terrorism and rescue—brilliantly paced with superb nonstop action. While tracking the 9/11 terrorist hijackers at the “Kuala Lumpur Summit,” the Silent Six team are redirected on a rescue mission of sheer audacity and nerve--rescue a group of children being transported from Camp 14 in North Korea. Here is David Joseph’s heart-stopping masterpiece, a riveting novel about the most diabolical government and criminal syndicate that ever existed—the Kim regime and Office 39.
Putin’s Gold (Book Three)
Putin and Kim Jong Un unleash a deadly reign of global terror by hijacking a Malaysian airliner, shooting down a Malaysian airliner, and circulating the “PBF,” the Perfect Ben Franklin. CIA Director Mike Perry followed the evil Office 39 Director for over thirty years and finally has a chance to eliminate him along with the Kim regime. As an added bonus, the Federal Reserve cripples the Putin government through manipulating the oil markets, applying economic sanctions, and acquiring huge gold reserves in North Korea. Putin’s Gold is a shocking novel paralleling real world events.
David Joseph's electrifying conclusion to the Korea Trilogy--now a media tie-in to two airliner incidents--will have you glued to the page right down to the last word.

Pain is something Carol puts her hands on every day. With training and experience, it is sometimes obvious that the pain that troubles the person has roots deeper than the pain that presents.
Sometimes, it is quite simply a postural fault, especially as we all crunch ourselves in front of computers for hours on end, whether we are working or playing. Often the pain comes from a deeper source, such as family stories, fear over world events, personal trauma, unforgiveness and a host of negative emotions.
Carol has been doing hands on work with clients for over 20 years and became a licensed massage therapist in 2006 with over 2000 hours of training and thousands more in experience and learning. Her desire to help with her clients' healing probably stems from a family history of migraines, her mother's background in nursing and her father's in spiritual care.
This book is a troubleshooting guide to the body, specifically the body's pain.
It won't make you a doctor or therapist over night, but it will teach you a little about how the body perceives pain. There are many sources of pain, not all of them physical. We will look at how the mind and body are closely related and how one affects the other. We'll also look at how to affect one by using the other.
This is a book about "every day" pain, not a medical journal or self-diagnostic tool. It is easy to read, with a clear and light style that will help you discover some of the less obvious sources of pain in your daily life.

Patricia (Uziel) Terry was born in Kansas City, Kansas, Oct. 1941. Grew up on Strawberry Hill, went to Saint John the Baptist School and was in the adjacent orphanage just like my Uncle Willie Radkay. I was raised by my grandmother, Uncle Willie's mother. I never meant to be an author but listening to my Uncle's stories I knew they had to be in print for posterity. I can only imagine what he didn't tell me about the life he led.
Willie Radkay grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, spanning the two World Wars, Prohibition, the Great Depression and the Gangster era. A lawless soul, Willie survived numerous bank robberies, jail breaks, escapes and gun battles. Looking at old microfilm of newspaper articles in relation to a jewelry heist my Uncle told me about it, I read that he had been shot 12-times. I took the printed article to my Uncle to ask him about being shot. He said he didn't remember. I said: "How can you get shot 12-times and not remember", he replied, "Tough skin, soft bullets and they didn't hit anything important". In the book a picture of Willie's torso shows the six slugs still in his body but imagine my surprise after viewing the entire X-ray after the book was published he also had a slug in each arm, which meant he carried 8-bullets in his body for over sixty-years. In later years when he drove to our home with a fractured hip from a fall my husband and I carried him from the driver's seat to the passenger seat. My husband commented: "You sure are heavy for a little guy". Uncle Willie said: "Yeah that's from all the lead in my ass".
The Kansas City Star said that Willie was one of the most notorious armed robbers in Kansas City's history.http://www.willieradkayalcatraz.com
After graduating high school in beautiful and naïve Carson City, Nevada the author spent 4 years in the US Navy learning Chinese Mandarin and bureaucracy. He spent his GI Bill earning a Manufacturing Engineering Degree from Oregon State University – home of the Beavers. Upon graduation he was lucky enough to get sucked into the vortex of a major truck manufacturer where he spent the next 25 years doing everything from licking boots to booting up IT systems. His 3 year honeymoon in China, from bumfuck to Beijing, along with many, many meetings and assignations across the country and all over Europe made it clear that people are strange and wonderful no matter where you find them. Tim has been capturing his impressions for a long time. This book is the first exposure for people outside his immediate loop. He lives in Seattle with his lovely wife Dulcie and the semi-domesticated hummingbirds that come to the back deck for nectar. The cats and dogs doing their business in his yard are, presumably, some sort of cherry on top.
This is a book for pet lovers and pet haters and other people that live in America today. Everyone wins – especially the helpless animals that are forever being processed through the Pet Retailing and Industrial Complex (Big Pet). This book will help change minds about what needs to be done to reduce animal suffering and how people can start on that today. But instead of the guilt-trippy misery associated with a lot of facts and sad pictures, this book makes the case with hilarious tales, outrageous suppositions and totally made up charts and graphs. Perhaps the most useful information within is the many helpful tips on how to get laid! Improve your batting average in just 10 minutes! Start reading immediately!
Some people love pets. Some people tolerate pets. Some people actually, really hate pets. Some actual people and some corporate persons sell pets. Individually each person goes about their business related to pets and thinks they are doing normal things in their lives. The truth is that the entire pet ecosystem is out of whack. Seriously out of whack. Anyone willingly participating in a system responsible for the death of a cat or dog in America every 8 seconds is fantastically deluded or sadistically deranged. Nevertheless, here we are with “the people” up to their lips in vet bills and cat taco outfits and sh*t management solutions. Everywhere you go there are pets. Everybody is either convinced or getting convinced that pets are a good fit with whatever they are doing at the moment. Be it working, playing, eating, teaching, learning, shopping,… it doesn’t matter they think a pet should be there. I propose a climb-down from pet ubiquity. A fresh look at and a changing of the national mind about pets. Can’t we get along with a hell of a lot less pet choice? Can’t we agree to try to get the death rate up to 10 seconds? Go hog wild and shoot for 20?
Roger K. Miller, author also of the novels Invisible Hero and Dragon in Amber and of the non-fiction work, The Chenango Kid: A Memoir of the Fifties, was a newspaper writer and editor for more than thirty years. He is a freelance writer and critic whose work has appeared in numerous metropolitan newspapers and other publications. He and his wife Nancy, parents of three grown children, live in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
Constance (Connie) Pendleton and Connor Martin live in the rundown working-class section of a medium-sized industrial city. Their sixth-grade teacher calls them her “two Connies,” a label they despise but that is the spark that melts their wariness of one another and turns them into friends.
It is the early 1950s. While the rest of America is growing prosperous, their two families live on the economic edge, Connie with her parents and younger sister, Connor with his Aunt Meg, older sister of his deceased mother. At first the only thing Connie and Connor share is their embarrassment over the shabby, small apartments in which they live. But gradually the things they have in common, including a love of the decade’s movies and music, bring about mutual admiration. Each is troubled by a death in the past.
Connor’s Aunt Meg, divorced and childless, loves him fiercely. But she has a married boyfriend, Sam, whose volatility and air of danger add to Connor’s fearfulness.
As friends Connie and Connor complement and are good for each other. Throughout the decade—as they go through school and domestic routine, enjoying dances and movies and other activities—the closeness of their relationship wanes and waxes, until by their senior years it looks as if it might blossom into romance and love.
Theirs is a Lost World in that the 1950s (revived for the reader in the narrative of these lives) is a time long gone by and foreign to most of us. In a darker sense of the title, Connie and Connie lose their world, smashed for them by a series of disasters.
They flee from each other and from their sorrows, lost to each other for years—until one of those coincidences that happen in life more often than in books. But after all the sadness, can the coincidence bring happiness?
An epilogue provides a startling, even shocking, ending—and resolves a troubling issue, introduced in the prologue, that crops up again and again throughout the novel.

"Algunos Adioses sin Respuesta"
Mis poemas son el resultado de instantes fugaces en los que leo una mirada, una pequeña historia que cabe en la forma en que unos brazos yacen apoyados o en un gesto de profunda tristeza o alegría; o en un momento de temblor estético; instantes que, si bien son fugaces, provocan una intensa emoción en mi; surgen, entonces, los versos como verdades incompletas que buscan explicar esa realidad captada, vienen y van en mi mente hasta que aflora el poema como un saber dormido.
porque yo, soy poeta, leo las almas
y cuento las lágrimas de la vida.
(Pasos de Arco Iris. Amarillo y violeta)
Me gusta definirme como:" amiga de Las Horas, que custodian las puertas del cielo, de la lluvia, el silencio y sus colores".
Este libro se sumerge en la reflexión de las emociones y sentimientos que nos suscitan algunos adioses que afrontamos en la vida, la forma en que los enfocamos e intentamos superarlos.

The Return is his first novel in the planned series of military thrillers featuring Paul Stanton, SAS.
Bernard Cornwell says of The Return:
"A novel of brutal authenticity, unflinching realism and compelling story-telling. This is an enormously impressive debut and I look forward to more of Paul Stanton’s exploits!"
Introducing a new, modern day action hero, Paul Stanton, SAS
When the IRA mount a blitzkrieg attack on one of his operational bases and kill his men, Major Paul Stanton knows his security has been compromised. But proving it and then finding those responsible is another matter.
Given the chance to do so, but with no safety net if he fails, Stanton goes undercover. He tracks his targets from Bandit Country and the IRA strongholds of West Belfast into the South. His trail takes him to the wrecked Wall Zone in Cold War Berlin, and here he delivers the return.
The Return is the first in the new series: The Paul Stanton novels.
"Intelligent, emotive and entertaining." Matt Lynn, author of the Shadow Force novels
"… a gripping read in the best tradition of the military thriller…” Patrick Mercer, author of To Do And Die, Dust and Steel and Red Runs The Helmand
“…a rattling good yarn…heartily recommend it as a good read.” Reviews from the Army Rumour Service (ARRSE) book reviews
I am a retired electrical engineer that became alarmed upon learning my doctor's diagnosis of onset diabetes. This concern lead me to finally do something about losing weight to try to mitigate the oncoming health problems. My doctor recommended losing at least 10 to 20 pounds as a start, which I began immediately. Concurrently, I began research to determine the best healthy diet to lose and then maintain a new permanent, target weight. As I describe in the book, I was able to lose weight remarkably fast and with amazing results. Not only did the weight dissapear but my health situation significantly changed for the better as well.
My wife was impressed with my diet and encouraged me to share my story with others that may be overweight or obese. She knew there were many people that could benefit from this diet plan. As a result of her gentle proding, I am now the proud author of my first book.
If any reader wishes to ask a question or share information, I can be reached by email geewhizztoo@gmail.
This book is autobiographical in the sense that it is about my struggle with obesity most of my adult life and what I have done to conquer it. A fight that has finally ended as I am no longer obese. I am no longer overweight, and best of all, I am successfully maintaining a healthy, active weight. I could say journey to success was difficult and filled with dreadful sacrifice, but it was not. It was, in fact, surprisingly easy. Clearly one cannot lose more than fifty-five pounds and maintain this loss without a little discipline and sacrifice, but the payback far exceeds the small price one pays. What is it worth to gain better health, and physical liberation in the form of new strength, agility, balance, and energy? Good health is of paramount importance, particularly as we advance in age. If one is age 49 or older, chances are, they want to capture at least a portion of their youth. They want to be in good health, move without pain, and look good, lively, and attractive. They want to enjoy life and feel wanted by the people who are special in their life. People under 49 want these things, too, of course, and this diet plan will work just as well for them. Though this book has a primary focus toward the more advanced in age, it is as critical for children and young adults among us. The overweight young people face serious social pressures daily, which affect relationships, confidence and self-esteem; their addiction-like eating habits to the wrong foods and lack of consistent, moderate exercise is putting them at risk to a life-long battle against overweight and unhappiness.

Michael Patrick Clark was born on The Fourth of July 1950.
He spent the first few years of his life in an orphanage, before adoption brought a new home and a change of name.
Unhappy at home, Michael joined the armed forces as a boy apprentice. He trained in telecommunications, and subsequently transferred to a specialist mobile-communications unit.
Over the ensuing years he travelled the world; living and working in environments as exotic, hostile, and diverse as the Libyan Desert, Europe, the Australian outback, South-East Asia, and Central and South America.
In the late seventies Michael moved into the high-tech industry. He worked predominantly on international consultancy, for U.S. based communications and computer manufacturers, but after twenty-five years in the industry, made the life-changing decision to move to Spain, with his wife Pamela, and write novels.
Since then he has completed the first and last parts of The Etzel Trilogy, The Folks at Fifty-Eight being the first. He has also written Flying with Cuckoos, an amusing and heart-warming account of his tortuous journey from the orphanage to Special Forces: due for publication later this year.
Flying with Cuckoos tells the true story of a journey of discovery, as a young and naïve Michael Clark leaves a desperately-unhappy adopted home, to join the armed forces, as a ‘boy apprentice’ before transferring into one of the most ill-disciplined and disreputable units in the British armed forces.
As the story unfolds, we follow his progress; from one-sided battles with school bullies in suburban England, to even-more one-sided battles with the S.A.S. in some of the world’s most dangerous and exotic places; from the jungles of South-East Asia, and the bullet-scarred shacks of Gaddafi’s ‘new’ Libya, through the tragedy of the war in Vietnam, and the hedonistic excess of swinging-sixties Bangkok and Singapore.
Funny, poignant, and at times outrageous, Flying with Cuckoos is a heart-warming story of hope and achievement, and the remarkable journal of a young man’s battle to survive and overcome.
