One month into our stay, we´d managed to dispatch most of our charges. We executed the chickens. One of the cats disappeared, clearly disgusted with our urban ways. And Lucky [the cow] was escaping almost daily. It seemed we didn´t have much of a talent for farming. And we still had eleven months to go. Antonia Murphy, you might say, is an unlikely farmer. Born and bred in San Francisco, she spent much of her life as a liberal urban cliché, and her interactions with the animal kingdom rarely extended past dinner. But then she became a mother. And when her eldest son was born with a rare, mysterious genetic condition, she and her husband, Peter, decided it was time to slow down and find a supportive community. So the Murphys moved to Purua, New Zealand - a rural area where most residents maintained private farms, complete with chickens, goats, and (this being New Zealand) sheep. The result was a comic disaster, and when one day their son had a medical crisis, it was also a little bit terrifying. Dirty Chick chronicles Antonia´s first year of life as an artisan farmer. Having bought into the myth that farming is a peaceful, fulfilling endeavor that allows one to commune with nature and live the way humans were meant to live, Antonia soon realized that the reality is far dirtier and way more disgusting than she ever imagined. Among the things she learned the hard way: Cows are prone to a number of serious bowel ailments, goat mating involves an astounding amount of urine, and roosters are complete and unredeemable assholes. But for all its traumas, Antonia quickly embraced farm life, getting drunk on homemade wine (it doesn´t cause hangovers!), making cheese (except for the cat hair, it´s a tremendously satisfying hobby), and raising a baby lamb (which was addictively cute until it grew into a sheep). 1.

According to the American Psychological Association´s Stress in America Survey, a majority of people cite lack of ´´willpower´´ as the number one reason for the inability to make the changes needed to achieve their desired outcomes in life. Who hasn´t chickened out on getting something they wanted or needed? This book is about willpower. It offers strategies to tap into self-discipline, allowing for improved follow-through on commitments and achieving what you truly want. When you don´t do what you say, when you give up or just cave, that behavior is called pulling the Chicken Switch. Rather than just offering a plethora of case studies and checklists on willpower, Don´t Pull the Chicken Switch is a fun, engaging, and relevant story. The story highlights a company´s executive team´s personal willpower challenges, some of the most frequent human willpower challenges faced, that when identified, addressed, and then conquered propel the executive team members individual productivity and power. This then propels their respective departments and employee personnel to new willpower, productive, and effectiveness heights. In story form, backed with factual data about willpower, explore the physiological and psychological stimuli that affect pulling the Chicken Switch. Pulling the Chicken Switch can be avoided. Sometimes we pull it knowingly, other times we trigger it subconsciously. To not pull the Chicken Switch takes willpower. If you understand that willpower is a product of what you believe, while managing your physiological and psychological systems, you can fend off pulling the Chicken Switch and get everything you want out of life. This book is for leaders. Organizational leaders. Team leaders. Community leaders. Individual leaders. You. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kit Allowitz.

Black voters have overwhelmingly supported the Democratic Party for the last fifty years - and for their loyalty, black Americans have been rewarded with worsening schools, collapsed families, skyrocketed incarceration rates, disappearing jobs, and rising crime. Crystal Wright, editor of the blog Conservative Black Chick, exposes how the Democratic Party has systematically betrayed black voters. Democrats have pulled a big con job on blacks in America. Black voters have overwhelmingly supported the Democratic Party for the last fifty years. Where has that support gotten the black community? Democrats have let black incarceration rates rise and marriage rates drop. They´ve let entire neighborhoods become dependent on welfare, and they´ve let education and job opportunities dwindle. So why do black voters keep voting for progressive Democratic candidates? Crystal Wright, editor of the blog Conservative Black Chick, takes the Democratic Party to task in this bold, biting exposé of the Democrats´ systematic betrayal of the blindly loyal black community. 1.
