Summary

Public Gardens and Livable Cities changes the paradigm for how we conceive of the role of urban public gardens. Donald A. Rakow, Meghan Z. Gough, and Sharon A. Lee advocate for public gardens as community outreach agents that can, and should, partner with local organizations to support positive local agendas. Safe neighborhoods, quality science education, access to fresh and healthy foods, substantial training opportunities, and environmental health are the key initiative areas the authors explore as they highlight model successes and instructive failures that can guide future practices. Public Gardens and Livable Cities uses a prescriptive approach to synthesize a range of public, private, and nonprofit initiatives from municipalities throughout the country. In doing so, the authors examine the initiatives from a practical perspective to identify how they were implemented, their sustainability, the obstacles they encountered, the impact of the initiatives on their populations, and how they dealt with the communities' underlying social problems.By emphasizing the knowledge and skills that public gardens can bring to partnerships seeking to improve the quality of life in cities, this book offers a deeper understanding of the urban public garden as a key resource for sustainable community development.

    Even if you’ve never seen a James Bond film or never met a real-life CIA agent, you should know that spies are geniuses at surviving covertly. Their ability to communicate in code is practically written into their DNA. And while it’s true that spies receive some of the best survival training in the world, there’s another, more critical skill a spy must have to survive… business savvy.  
    In Agent of Influence, bestselling author Jason Hanson, a former CIA special agent and founder of Spy Escape School, reveals how anyone can use spy tactics for increased success, from learning how to strategically plan your day to mastering the steps you’ll need to embrace challenges and set achievable, personal goals. He teaches you how to develop a winning sales personality and target the perfect business opportunity using the SADR cycle—”spotting,” “assessing,” “developing,” and “recruiting.” With this invaluable and unique handbook, you will become a more productive, confidant professional or entrepreneur. 
    Discover how to use proven spy techniques to bolster your business strategies—from self-advocation to selling to interviewing—and ultimately make more money. In our evolving age of entrepreneurships, corporate careers, and self-run businesses, Jason’s message will appeal to those looking for a competitive leg up, and who entrust the insider secrets of spy practice to take them there.

    (BONUS! Includes Audio recordings of the actual routines in the book! All 700 of them!) Download Link found inside!It will give added insights on the overall game strategy to put back routines that were missed in standard teachings from  routine based systems, that only produced "Social Robots".The mistake of the old teachings is they had you memorize random routines, although were useful? Were simply out of context in the flow of conversations from the "sets" or targets. If you were naturally talking about Cars, you had to transition into talking about Cs and U smiles and gay cats? That's retarded!True routine game does not need you to force segue routines, just so you can use them! You have to roll with the punches (devastating blows at that) and flow naturally! The feeling should be as effortless as if you were doing Natural game or engaged in normal conversations with real people.This book has enough canned materials or templates that can be customized and reworded (highly encouraged) to fit exactly how you converse, and your own unique game styles and personality.As with the problem of those doing routines? They only had a miniscule collection of routines memorized.  They were obscure topics, out of the way in typical conversations, and not easy to implement in conversations. This is because the Seducer has no way to INTERNALIZE and have ready access to the materials! This is also why the audio recordings are included to serve as your Line Feeder, anytime, anywhere, even if you're doing another task! So you can practice even while sleeping and really absorb the materials through different modes of internalizations.This book series' purpose is not just to give you routines, but for you to ABSORB and actually have ready memory access to the materials whenever  you need them in the field! Over 700 hundred of them!
