About this deal

I still laugh nervously at the most inappropriate times and am the only one laughing. It’s terribly awkward. It’s become an automatic reflex for bad situations, like when my husband said he was leaving out of the blue, I instantly started laughing. He didn’t find it funny, but it temporarily eased the pain. As mourners gather in Dallas for the funerals of police officers shot and killed by Micah Johnson today, there is a familiar sense that someone, somewhere, is not doing their job. That familiar feeling isn’t restricted to guns and violence. It can be felt across the civic spectrum, from education, college debt, healthcare, trade, employment and growth. Alkaline water has several proposed health benefits, such as immune system support and pro-aging & colon-cleansing properties. A few small studies have suggested that drinking alkaline water has a positive effect on health.

I’ve also had Wade on my podcast to discuss all things Improv & Covert Theatre, as well as creating creativity in a corporate culture and using Improv as a mirror for self-reflection & awareness. Joanna Mason is facing another frustrating spell on the sidelines after she suffered a leg injury on Monday in a freak gallops incident involving pigeons. Reality star, Angie Kent has successfully transitioned platforms from the screen, to socials to now her own autobiography! It is authentically Angie and you can imagine her sitting on her gogglebox couch (with or without Yvie, depending on which chapters you read, haha) telling you how see she's the world as you read. Reading this book was like having a conversation with your friends. After reading this book I feel that Angie is a funny, witty and unique character. Speaking up and fighting against PSH and sexual assault is not a trend. It is an incredibly taxing thing for many survivors to do. In a survey by UN Women, 96% of respondents did not report incidents despite 97% experiencing PSH. Yet, using our voices to share our experiences gives us a sense of solidarity. When I see other people share their experiences, I know I am not alone and it gives me the courage to say what women experience daily is not okay. In turn, I have so many survivors message me saying that they have been encouraged to speak out.For example, a 2016 study of 100 people found a significant difference in blood viscosity after consuming high-pH water compared to regular water after a strenuous workout. This means blood flowed more efficiently with alkaline water which then increases oxygen delivery throughout the body. I realize that humour isn't for everyone. It's only for people who want to have fun, enjoy life, and feel alive.” – Anne Wilson Schaef And what am I studying? Something I have been doing for a long time, “Advising family businesses”. I just wanted to add some more tools & frameworks to my toolkit – so now I hopefully learned more about Succession planning & Entrepreneurial renewal as well as strengthening my knowledge of Strategic planning & Governance.

We start our own businesses because we love it. Passion is key – or else we wouldn’t be able to keep up with the demands of being a business owner, but what else do we need to ensure the success of our business?

Medical Debt entraps millions and The Affordable Care Act appears less affordable and more temporary

The movie is oddly touching because it is so hilarious. A few times I had to stop the movie because I was laughing so hard. A lot of the humor comes from just how true the subject matter is. Ron Howard does a great job adding humor to some of the situations. I was very surprised by just how good this movie was. I expected just another Steve Martin vehicle, but this was much, much more then that. I was just riding a filly and getting her cantering on the gallops when three pigeons flew out of the bushes. The other two lads behind me stayed on their horses, but my filly darted and I went out to the right and landed on my ankle funny," she said.

In Gino’s experience, every single company that has consistently gotten what they want from their business as well as enduring & overcoming huge challenges like a pandemic or a recession, has had this one thing in common.

America is fascinated by prisons and prison culture, but few Americans understand what it is like to work in corrections. Claire Schmidt, whose extended family includes three generations of Wisconsin prison workers, introduces readers to penitentiary officers and staff as they share stories, debate the role of corrections in American racial politics and social justice, and talk about the important function of humor in their jobs. Now, for the ‘smirk that could cut the rind off a stilton cheese…’ I am an English student and this phrase thoroughly puzzled and bemused. Maybe I need to be a better cheese expert to fully comprehend it. Does it mean I have sharp teeth? Maybe a cheesy grin? It is awfully specific, isn’t it? I am fascinated he capitalised ‘Stilton’: it is clearly a very important cheese to him. I wonder if the ‘ smell’ of ‘a budding modelling career’ is of stilton cheese? Book Review** Thank you to @hachetteaus for providing us a review copy of If You Don’t Laugh You’ll Cry by @angiekent_ .My mother died in 2005 at the age of 76. I think she wouldhave found a new one-liner or two worth repeating over the last 10 years. The internet would not have been “ her cup of tea,” but I know she would have been deeply upset by Dallas, and she would have likely written a letter to her congressman because “ the squeaky wheel gets the grease.” My mother held her politics close to the vest (Democrat), and often summed up her position as “ you read your newspaper and I’ll read mine” or “ if I wanted your opinion I’d give it to you” if there was a disagreement afoot. I don’t think she would have been “partial” to either Trump or Clinton, but would have voted. And I do think she would have liked John Oliver, probably even more than I do. I think they both share a sense of humor and a do-your-job sensibility.
