Joe Turner may eat from paper plates and keep his living room table perpetually messy but in the court room, he always delivers a clean, organized argument. In Good Lookin’: a Joe Turner Mystery by T. L. Bequette, Turner represents Darnell Moore who is accused of murdering Cashtown gang member Cleveland Barlow on March 22, 2021.

A Gift of Poetry by Debbie Monteggia – Win Major Brownie Points with this Gift Idea

Arts, Culture, Mom Life
A friend who makes thoughtful considerations when sending something, planning dinners, making movie or book recommendations because they've known you for a long time. But what if a book or poem you just read throws you for a loop? You read it and wonder how does this author know me so well. That's exactly how I felt when I started reading "Tears of Change" by Debbie Monteggia last week. The book contains numerous poems, reflections, and quotes that make you think of how you'd like to lead life.

Don’t Just Survive, Thrive in the Remote Workplace

Home Business
Through his job placement service DistantJob, Sharon Koifman has consistently advocated for remote work. He's been a believer in remote employees for 20 years, claiming that they produce more because they are happier and healthier. Surviving Remote Work: How to Thrive as a Leader and Entrepreneur in the Remote Age, his business book, provides evidence that this is the case. Koifman supports leaders who need to undertake what may appear to be a significant and costly shift in their business processes and culture.  The author speaks to both bosses and employees preparing to embark on the crazy journey we call "working from home" during 2020's summer lockdown. That wasn't his intention at all. He intended to write a book about how to construct distributed teams and embrace remote management, then discovered:  What the pandemic has given us is…

Steven Joseph’s CrankaTsuris Method is here to help. It is no secret that the pandemic has put a strain on most relationships in more ways than one. Steven Joseph writes A Grownup Guide to Effective Crankiness: The CrankaTsuris Method in a silly self-help style which will reassure you that your crankiness is not only natural, but also waiting to be healthily expressed. The stay-at-home orders, being stuck in close quarters with immediate family members, and general stress brought about by the pandemic certainly increased crankiness globally. While some can see the light at the end of the tunnel in terms of going back to normal, others may feel in a darker place than ever before. Joseph writes this guide at the perfect time with just the right amount of humor…
