The Art of War (Chiron Academic Press – The Original Authoritative Edition) by Sun Tzu

THE ART OF WAR (Chinese: 孫子兵法; pinyin: Sūnzĭ bīngfǎ) is an ancient Chinese military treatise attributed to Sun Tzu, a high-ranking military general, strategist and tactician, and kindred to the Realpolitik of his time, termed in China as Legalism. The text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics. It has been the most famous and influential of China’s Seven Military Classics, and “for the last two thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia, where even the common people knew it by name.” It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond.Beyond its military and intelligence applications from earliest days to the present time, THE ART OF WAR has been applied to many fields well outside of the military. Much of the text is about how to fight wars without actually having to do battle: it gives tips on how to outsmart one’s opponent so that physical battle is not necessary. As such, it has found application as a training guide for many competitive endeavors that do not involve actual combat. There are business books applying its lessons to office politics and corporate strategy. Many companies make the book required reading for their key executives. The book is also popular among Western business management, who have turned to it for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive business situations. It has also been applied to the field of education. The Art of War has been the subject of law books and legal articles on the trial process, including negotiation tactics and trial strategy.

CBD-Rich Hemp Oil: Cannabis Medicine is Back by Steven Leonard-Johnson RN PhD and Tina Rappaport BFA

Prior to the outlawing of cannabis in 1937, major pharmaceutical companies produced a wide variety of cannabis-based medicines, but cannabis has actually been used as a medicine for thousands of years. Although it has a long history, the recent discovery (1992) of the body’s widespread endocannabinoid system (ECS) has thrust cannabis back into the limelight again as a viable medicine.

In 2012 over 2.5 million prescriptions were written for medical marijuana in the United States. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in cannabis. However, while THC produces a “high” in the user, CBD does not. And now legal CBD-rich hemp oil is available over-the-counter in all 50 states, without a prescription.

It was discovered that the Hemp Family of plants (cannabis, marijuana) is loaded with cannabinoids that stimulate our ECS receptor sites. These sites are found in the brain, organs, glands, connective tissue and immune cells and plays regulatory roles in many physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory. The primary purpose of this system revolves around maintaining balance in the body.

Cannabinoids found in all varieties of cannabis work in harmony with the cannabinoids we naturally produce when our system is functioning properly. It is now coming to light that we may very well be “Endocannabinoid Deficient” and supplementing with Cannabidiol, known as CBD, may provide just what we’re missing to restore optimum health.

The health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) from natural hemp oil is this book’s primary focus. It explores the similarities, differences, uses and benefits of hemp, cannabis and medical marijuana along with the interplay of THC and CBD. Their 480 other components are also discussed, such as terpenoids, flavonoids, enzymes, vitamins, etc.

Make no mistake about it, the endocannabinoid system, although newly discovered, is just as important as any other bodily system, like the muscular, cardiac, circulatory or digestive system. The ECS requires its own specialized medicine as found in the Hemp Family of plants, which is also known as cannabis, and which includes all strains of marijuana.
Here is a list of conditions known and/or being researched that may be helped by cannabinoid therapeutics and supplementation:

Acne
ADD/ADHD
Addiction
AIDS
ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
Alzheimer’s
Anorexia
Antibiotic Resistance
Anxiety
Atherosclerosis
Arthritis
Asthma
Autism
Bipolar
Cancer
Colitis/Crohn’s
Depression
Diabetes
Endocrine Disorders
Epilepsy/Seizure
Fibromyalgia
Glaucoma
Heart Disease
Huntington’s
Inflammation
Irritable Bowel
Kidney Disease
Liver Disease
Metabolic Syndrome
Migraine
Mood Disorders
Motion Sickness
Multiple Sclerosis
Nausea
Neurodegeneration
Neuropathic Pain
Obesity
OCD
Osteoporosis
Parkinson’s
Prion/Mad Cow Disease
PTSD
Rheumatism
Schizophrenia
Sickle Cell Anemia
Skin Conditions
Sleep Disorders
Spinal Cord Injury
Stress
Stroke/TBI

The short story?
You have an Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS).
It helps regulate many bodily systems.
Mother’s milk has endo-cannabinoids and you produce your own, or not.
You could be suffering from clinical Endo-Cannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome (CEDS).
The Hemp family of plants is the only other source of cannabinoids.
One cannabinoid, CBD, just may be the greatest dietary supplement of our lifetime.

10% of the proceeds from sales of this book will be donated to the American Cannabis Nurses Association in an effort to bring together nurses, to share, integrate and one day certify nurses in the science of endocannabinoid therapeutics in nursing practice.

Getting Digital Marketing Right: A Simplified Process For Business Growth, Goal Attainment, and Powerful Marketing by David J. Bradley

You need your business grow and meet its goals over the next 12 months. You may have tried different marketing and sales tactics and met with different consultants, agencies, and potential hires. Still, there’s still no clear answer…
How can you maximize your return and meet your business goals, all while on a limited budget? If we had a corporate level, multimillion dollar budget, this might be easy. But, we aren’t in that position.
You’re about to discover how to grow your business and attain your goals with the two things you need for powerful marketing…
First of all, you need to know how to turn your digital presence into something useful, like leads or customers. To do this, you need a digital sales funnel in place – from top to bottom.
These are the six stages of the digital sales funnel:
Stage 1: Generate Demand Stage 2: Capture Quality Leads Stage 3: Nurture Leads Stage 4: Convert Leads into Customers Stage 5: Close, Deliver, & Satisfy Stage 6: Referrals and Follow Up
But that alone doesn’t mean much unless there’s a clear purpose. To have a purpose, we need a strategy.
To develop that strategy, we’ll walk through five-steps:
The First Step – Where are you today?
The Second Step – Finding Your Ideal
The Third Step – Mapping Out Your Plan
The Fourth Step – Getting Your Hands Dirty
The Fifth Step – Recap & Review
Have you noticed we didn’t say that you have to know how to do popular digital marketing tactics? Search engine optimization has backlinks to build and keywords to optimize for. Email lists have to be set up, connected to your website, and segmented based on the audience. Your website – well that might need to be coded from the ground up again.
But we aren’t going to worry about that. It isn’t our job to know how to build a website, or do SEO, or any of that technical knowledge. That’s not what getting digital marketing right is about.
We do want to know how these techniques will help us and if they make sense for our business. That’s what we will figure out as we go through this book, examining our digital sales funnel and developing our strategy.
What does it take to move us from today to our ideal future? The only way to get there is to know what that future ideal is, where we are today, and what plan will help us in that journey.

In Harm’s Way: A View from the Epicenter of Liberia’s Ebola Crisis by Nancy D. Sheppard

When long-time American missionary Nancy Sheppard volunteered to work with her friend Nancy Writebol in ELWA Hospital’s Ebola ward, she did not know what to expect. Night after night she worked, suiting up and disinfecting the medical personnel and helping wherever needed. While it was difficult, she recognized she was witnessing something extraordinary.

Author Nancy Sheppard writes, “What am I seeing here? I asked myself. It was invisible to all but me. This dying woman was perhaps the most untouchable person in the world and yet Dr. Brantly was touching her. And he was not just touching her physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Who was I that I should be granted the privilege of witnessing this? It was somehow both utterly tragic and supremely glorious.”

When, despite following protocols to the best of their abilities, Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly were diagnosed with Ebola, she knew how they would suffer as they fought this deadly disease.

But, “In Harm’s Way” is more than a book about ELWA Hospital’s Ebola ward, it is the story of Liberia itself. Told in the sympathetic voice of one who cares for the country and her people, Nancy explains the multiple societal and cultural factors that have exacerbated the Ebola crisis in her adopted home. Warm and human, this book takes you into Liberia’s epicenter of the war against Ebola. You will not emerge the same.
