Left to Die but loved by God highlights some of today’s major world issues seen through the lens of the Biblical story of Hagar. Throughout the book author John McCreedy takes the reader on a journey examining the turbulent story of Hagar and what her story teaches us today about contemporary issues such as the refugee crisis, modern day slavery, racism, and homelessness. The book concludes by looking at the subject of forgiveness and using the story of the unlikely reconciliation between Ishmael and Isaac presents a view of a possible peace through Jesus Christ between all three Abrahamic faiths, Islam Christianity and Judaism and other religions.
Reading the local paper is second nature to many people. Somehow it just turns up every week. But who are the people who provide our fix of local news and scandal? What tales could they tell of what really goes on behind the headlines? Here, three journalists with nearly 150 years’ collective experience tell their linked stories. Ken McEwan, John Dowling and Philip Elms began their careers in the same small office on the south coast of England in the 1960s. They went on to follow different strands of journalism. Eventually, they left the industry together as the recession of 2009 ravaged the newspaper business. Their stories are often revealing, sometimes funny, occasionally sad, but never dull. Who better to put a human face on life at the local paper?

Sam wants nothing more in life than to help his mom beat the cancer that sent her to the hospital for the umpteenth time that month. Everybody they go to for help say it’s useless to try. Experts, doctors, specialists. Nothing but hopelessness. He never expected the cure to come from the commanding officer of an alien army. The catch? One simple mission.
When a millennia-long, interplanetary war lands on Earth, nobody would have expected the planet’s fate to fall into the hands of Sam Adams. He isn’t exactly what his fellow students call talented. Shy, weird, and tall, maybe. Cue two alien races breaking through to Earth. One wants peace, the other only cares for power – and both claim to be the good guys. Who can you choose to trust but the ones helping save your mom?
This forex book explains a forex long term investment strategy in which the money you make as profit is highly commensurate with the capital you have invested.

Investing in forex does not have formula as many books will explain to you. If you invest a large amount of money in a bank at a fixed deposit interest rate of 10% per annum, then you can mathematically calculate your exact profit and know what your returns will become at the end of one year. Can you do that in forex? What I simply mean is that there is no mathematical formula in forex that can help you determine if you will make a loss or a profit for any particular move that you make. If you must remain in the market and be sure to make profit, then you must avoid gambling.
Once you avoid gambling in forex, then you are certain of making profit. Since you cannot easily predict if the market will go against you or not, then do not do what can make you lose all your money. I mean invest your money and avoid gambling. It is as simple as that.
