High school students in the "academic middle" are at a great disadvantage when graduation time comes. In terms of traditional career paths, their futures aren't bright. Today's labor market is uncertain and difficult. Tuition costs for traditional four-year colleges have soared out of reach for many students. And the academic records of these students will greatly limit their likelihood of acceptance and, therefore, their options for further education. But there are promising alternatives. And that's the good-news message from authors Gray and Herr. This timely book explores the choices available to students beyond traditional four-year colleges, options that carry a much higher probability of success and are more accessible for students in the academic middle. The authors discuss the long-held "one way to win" theory and analyze why it is no longer working. Using information gained by studying the experiences of secondary and postsecondary students, Gray and Herr document the clear and immediate need to help students regain control of their futures. They explain the importance of learning relevant occupational skills and explore alternative avenues for training, such as one- and two-year postsecondary technical institutions and work-based programs sponsored by employers and employee groups. Other Ways to Win presents three major steps that schools or districts can take to modify school programs in order to create viable options for students. It shows specific strategies designed to involve teachers, parents, and students in the process of better preparing students for graduation and for the workplace. All students, regardless of their academic or financial backgrounds, deserve the opportunity to succeed. This resource can help make it happen. Every principal, every guidance counselor, and every school reference library should have at least one copy of this indispensable book.
THE ONE IMPORTANT THING TO KNOW ABOUT GAMBLING is that there is no guaranteed way to win all the time. But there is a guaranteed way to lose constantly, and that is when you don’t understand the basic rules of playing and betting. It is appalling how many people, even big-money gamblers, lose consistently and don’t know why. There are only two types of gamblers-those who really know the game and suckers. Mike Goodman, a veteran professional gambler, gives you an amazing, easy-to-understand insight on how to gamble and win. HORSE RACING...watch those second favorites; let the suckers play the favorites, they’re usually overplayed! DICE...you’re a sucker if you don’t take advantage of the odds, but the real pay-off comes when you know how to bet! SLOTS...there’s only one way to beat those “one-arm bandits,” but, unfortunately, it’s against the law! ROULETTE...it’s tough to beat the house percentage, but there are ways to lose less, keep you in the game, and then, who knows? BLACKJACK “21”...here’s a game you can win at consistently if you learn the tricks and how to put “lady luck” on your side! POKER...you get real help here; tips that’ll open your eyes, make you play a better game and win! This book gives solid advice on how you can become a tough player and helps tilt the odds more in your direction. I’m just plain sick of “experts” who promise the moon but peddle virtually worthless advice. Somewhere in their pitch you’re told that they’re not multi-millionaires because they are not allowed in gambling casinos and I challenge any one of them to use this system at “craps”, “21” or roulette at my casino. If they haven’t got the guts to back up their system with hard cash, I challenge them to meet me face to face in public to debate any phase of gambling on which they claim to be an authority.

As a sculptor focuses attention on the image of the finished statue he intends to bring out of the stone, letting chips from his chisel fall away unnoticed, so do we keep a picture of the potentialities of each person before us?we help the Real Person emerge from his or her prison of fat, and let the faults and failures drop away as they will.If you have tried everything and you believe that nothing will conquer your weight and appetite and that no one understands your problem, you are wrong. Laurel Keyes struggled with an overweight problem all of her life and could not lose at all. ?My will power was exhausted.?She was convinced that the chief factor in treating obesity had been overlooked.

You can get anything in the world that you want, if you help somebody else get something they want. —Zig Zigler Whether you are a parent, son/daughter, friend, employee, manager or salesperson, you are constantly influencing others to accept you, your ideas, products or services. Those who masterfully present themselves and their ideas in a win-win manner, get ahead. Those who do not, may reap short-term gains and eventually fail in their objective. Influence is critical in leadership, negotiation, teamwork, sales, resolving family issues and getting others to buy into your ideas. Follow and practice the concepts, tips and processes described in this book and improve your influence results with anyone in a manner that achieves a win-win outcome. The emphasis is on expanding your influence skills and results in everyday situations. For example, through this book, you will learn how to: Enhance your personal and business relationships.
