Doggone Dead Audiobook

Doggone Dead

Author: Dane Mccaslin Narrator: Kitty Hendrix Release Date: August 2020

Retired high school teacher Gwen Franklin has a new pet valet business with her BFF, and a whole new leash on life. But a killer is about to come sniffing around . . . Gwen Franklin is looking forward to spending her retirement drinking her favorite coffee and reading mystery novels. Those peaceful plans are brought to heel by her best friend, Nora. Sporting stiletto heels, leggings, and a 'more is better' makeup routine, fifty-something Nora Goldstein has a penchant for marrying-and divorcing-rich men. Now that Gwen's got free time, Nora figures they should start a dog-walking and pet-sitting service together. But it's far from a walk in the park when the corpse of Linda Fletcher is found in Nora's kitchen. Linda was Nora's nemesis, and the large knife protruding from her chest points to murder. With no doubt that her bestie's being framed, Gwen puts her sleuthing skills-acquired from reading every Agatha Christie mystery-to the test as she digs through suspects, including four disgruntled ex-husbands, ten greedy ex-stepchildren, not to mention all her exes' exes. But with death threats and another body surfacing, can Gwen curb a killer before her own (dog) days come to an end?

When Leona Davis hatches a plan to return to her beloved hometown of Honeytree, Oregon, she hopes to build the egg farm of her dreams and leave behind the marriage of her nightmares. But the yolk's on her when she breaks ground on her chicken palace and unearths a skeleton in her front yard. It's clearly fowl play. The bones may be decades old, but there's no statute of limitations on murder. With a county forensics team roosting on her lawn and a flock of town gossips poking their beaks where they don't belong, Leona's well-laid farming plans may be nothing more than a wing and a prayer. Her spicy high school ex, Sheriff Eli Ramirez, assures Leona he'll crack the case, but he's not exactly a hardboiled detective. Her best hope to get back to a life with more hens and less mens? Scramble to uncover her small town's buried secrets before everything's totally plucked.

The School Discipline Fix: Changing Behavior Using the Collaborative Problem Solving Approach Audiobook

The School Discipline Fix: Changing Behavior Using the Collaborative Problem Solving Approach

Author: Alisha R. Pollastri, J. Stuart Ablon Narrator: Kitty Hendrix Release Date: July 2020

Traditional school discipline is ineffective and often damaging, relying heavily on punishments and motivational procedures aimed at giving students the incentive to behave better. There is a better way. Dr. Ablon and his coauthor Dr. Pollastri have been working with schools throughout the world to refine the Collaborative Problem-Solving (CPS) approach, creating a step-by-step program for educators based on the recognition-from research in neuroscience-that challenging classroom behaviors are due to a deficit of skill, not will. This book provides everything needed to implement the program, including reproducible assessment tools to pinpoint skill deficits in areas like frustration tolerance and flexibility that are at the root of students' challenging behaviors. Whether you are a teacher, counselor, coach, or administrator, the CPS approach to school discipline will provide you with a new mindset, an assessment process, and an effective intervention plan for each of your challenging students. You will walk away with strategies that are immediately actionable with the students in your life.

Shortlisted: Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court Audiobook

Shortlisted: Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court

Author: Hannah Brenner Johnson, Renee Knake Jefferson Narrator: Kitty Hendrix Release Date: June 2020

The inspiring and previously untold history of the women considered-but not selected-for the US Supreme Court In 1981, after almost two centuries of exclusively male appointments, Sandra Day O'Connor became the first female Supreme Court Justice of the United States, a significant historical moment and a symbolic triumph for supporters of women's rights. Most do not know, however, about the remarkable women shortlisted for the Supreme Court in the decades before O'Connor's success. Since the 1930s, nine women were formally considered for a seat on the Supreme Court, but were ultimately passed over. Shortlisted gives them the recognition they deserve. Award-winning scholars Renee Knake Jefferson and Hannah Brenner Johnson rely on previously unpublished materials to illustrate the professional and personal lives of these accomplished women. From Florence Allen, the first woman judge in Ohio, and the first to appear on a president's list for the Court, to Cornelia Kennedy, the first woman to serve as chief judge of a US district court, shortlisted by Ford and Reagan, Shortlisted shares the often overlooked stories of those who paved the way for women's representation throughout the legal profession and beyond.

Designed for Digital: How to Architect Your Business for Sustained Success Audiobook

Designed for Digital: How to Architect Your Business for Sustained Success

Author: Cynthia M. Beath, Jeanne W. Ross, Martin Mocker Narrator: Kitty Hendrix Release Date: January 2020

Most established companies have deployed such digital technologies as the cloud, mobile apps, the internet of things, and artificial intelligence. But few established companies are designed for digital. This book offers an essential guide for retooling organizations for digital success. In the digital economy, rapid pace of change in technology capabilities and customer desires means that business strategy must be fluid. As a result, the authors explain, business design has become a critical management responsibility. Effective business design enables a company to quickly pivot in response to new competitive threats and opportunities. Most leaders today, however, rely on organizational structure to implement strategy, unaware that structure inhibits, rather than enables, agility. In companies that are designed for digital, people, processes, data, and technology are synchronized to identify and deliver innovative customer solutions-and redefine strategy. Digital design, not strategy, is what separates winners from losers in the digital economy. Designed for Digital offers practical advice on digital transformation. Drawing on five years of research and in-depth case studies, the book is an essential guide for companies that want to disrupt rather than be disrupted in the new digital landscape.

Play Like a Man, Win Like a Woman: What Men Know About Success that Women Need to Learn Audiobook

Play Like a Man, Win Like a Woman: What Men Know About Success that Women Need to Learn

Author: Gail Evans Narrator: Kitty Hendrix Release Date: May 2019

Women make up almost half of today's labor force, but in corporate America they don't share half of the power. A major reason for this? Most women were never taught how to play the game of business. Throughout her career in the super-competitive, male-dominated media industry, Gail Evans, one of the country's most powerful executives, has met innumerable women who tell her that they feel lost in the workplace, almost as if they were playing a game without knowing the directions. In this book, she reveals the secrets to the playbook of success and teaches women at all levels of the organization-from assistant to vice president-how to play the game of business to their advantage. Men know the rules because they wrote them, but women often feel shut out of the process because they don't know when to speak up, when to ask for responsibility, what to say at an interview, and a lot of other key moves that can make or break a career. Sharing with humor and candor her years of lessons from corporate life, Gail Evans gives listeners practical tools for making the right decisions at work.

At the End of Life: True Stories About How We Die Audiobook

At the End of Life: True Stories About How We Die

Author: Francine Prose Narrator: Al Kessel, Kitty Hendrix Release Date: December 2018

What should medicine do when it can't save your life? The modern healthcare system has become proficient at staving off death with aggressive interventions. And yet, eventually everyone dies-and although most Americans say they would prefer to die peacefully at home, more than half of all deaths take place in hospitals or health care facilities. At the End of Life-the latest collaborative book project between the Creative Nonfiction Foundation and the Jewish Healthcare Foundation-tackles this conundrum head on. Featuring twenty-two compelling personal-medical narratives, the collection explores death, dying, and palliative care, and highlights current features, flaws, and advances in the healthcare system. Here, a poet and former hospice worker reflects on death's mysteries; a son wanders the halls of his mother's nursing home, lost in the small absurdities of the place; a grief counselor struggles with losing his own grandfather; a medical intern traces the origins and meaning of time; a mother anguishes over her decision to turn off her daughter's life support and allow her organs to be harvested; and a nurse remembers many of her former patients. These original, compelling personal narratives reveal the inner workings of hospitals, homes, and hospices where patients, their doctors and their loved ones all battle to hang on-and to let go.
