It´s everyone´s worst nightmare. You´re alone at a party, looking into a crowded living room, when you catch the eye of a particularly attractive individual next to the potted ficus. Smiles are exchanged, the floor is crossed. Now is the moment for that crucial first impression. ´´Hi.´´ ´´Hi there.´´ Gotta do better than that. Conversation. Small yet engaging talk. Come on, come on...Wait, what´s this? Have I seen the Mondrian exhibit? The who? You found it what? Did you just say ´´ebullient in its oppressive geometric inertia?´´ What the heck does that mean? Oh my God. I have to say something now. ´´Um...Gee, guess I missed out.´´ Well, you don´t have to miss out. Let´s face it, art and literature are broad subjects, but Living Language A Shortcut to Art and Literature can get you started. This entertaining, irreverent, and funny program will help you reclaim vague memories of people, paintings, and periods; take part in conversations instead of just nodding and smiling; figure out who and what you´d like to know more about; and toss around references to Mondrian, Melville, and Monet. 1.

And that´s when Will sees that one bullet is missing. And the only one who could have fired Shawn´s gun was Shawn. Huh. Will didn´t know that Shawn had ever actually used his gun. Bigger huh. Buck is dead. But Buck´s in the elevator? Just as Will´s trying to think this through, the door to the next floor opens. A teenage girl gets on, waves away the smoke from Dead Buck´s cigarette. Will doesn´t know her, but she knew him. Knew. When they were eight. And stray bullets had cut through the playground, and Will had tried to cover her, but she was hit anyway, and so what she wants to know, on that fifth floor elevator stop, is, what if Will, Will with the gun shoved in the back waistband of his jeans, misses.

Andy Stern, the former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), spent four years traveling the country and asking economists, futurists, labor leaders, CEOs, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, and political leaders to help envision the US economy 25 to 30 years from now. He vividly reports on people who are analyzing and creating this new economy - such as investment banker Steve Berkenfeld; David Cote, the CEO of Honeywell International; and Andy Grove of Intel. Through these stories, we come to a stark and deeper understanding of the toll technological progress will continue to take on jobs and income and its inevitable effect on tens of millions of people. But there is hope for our economy and future. The foundation of economic prosperity for all Americans, Stern believes, is a universal basic income. The idea of a universal basic income for all Americans is controversial, but American attitudes are shifting. Stern has been a game changer throughout his career, and his next goal is to create a movement that will force the political establishment to take action against something that many on both the right and the left believe is inevitable. 1.
