You´ve probably heard the advice put on your own oxygen mask before assisting others. This is true both in airplanes and in classrooms. You have to take care of yourself before you can help someone else. If teachers are stressed out and exhausted, how can they have the patience, positive energy, and enthusiasm to provide the best instruction for students? Author Mike Anderson asked that question as a teacher himself, and the answers he found form the basis of The Well-Balanced Teacher. He found that teachers need to take care of themselves in five key areas to keep themselves in shape to care for their students. In addition to paying proper attention to their basic needs for nutrition, hydration, sleep, exercise, and emotional and spiritual refreshment, teachers also need. Belonging: Teachers need to feel positive connections with other people, both in school and outside school. Significance: Teachers want to know that they make a positive difference through the work they do. Positive engagement: When teachers enjoy their work, they have great energy and passion for their teaching. Balance: Healthy teachers set boundaries and create routines so that they can have rich lives both in the classroom and at home. Anderson devotes a chapter to each of these needs, describing in frank detail his own struggles and offering a multitude of practical tips to help readers find solutions that will work for them. When teachers find ways to take care of their own needs, they will be healthier and happier, and they will have the positive energy and stamina needed to help their students learn and grow into healthy adults.

This is an autobiography about a man from New Jersey born in 1947. Following his graduation from high school in 1965, he enlisted in the Marines and went to Vietnam. Home and honorably discharged before turning 21, he meandered for a few years in the time of the anti-war movement and psychedelic drugs that were the late ´60s and early ´70s. He found his feet in aviation with his first introductory flight. He immediately knew piloting an airplane was what he wanted to do. His involvement in the drug culture led to incarceration and jeopardized his future, though. He met a woman fell in love and has been married for 42 years. They raised a family and built a house while he struggled to stay employed as an airplane pilot. The ebb and flow of the pilot employment market led to various jobs and even an attempted career change. After earning a degree at a culinary school, he bought a failing restaurant and gave it a go for a few years. Before becoming bankrupt he managed to get back in aviation as the restaurant was failing. The return to flying was in turbine powered equipment at first doing more night freight work, but it led to his best job ever. Someone ran an ad for a position in Africa: ´´Sabreliner Captain wanted so I can give my man a holiday.” The timing was perfect because it was the same type airplane he had been flying. The job was for a month but he stayed on for four years as pilot for a dictator’s cabinet in the heart of Africa. It wasn’t all smooth air over there but survive he did. On returning to the States he went back to grass roots stick-and-rudder agricultural aviation for three years, spraying corn in Iowa. In the journey there was one wife, two children, two sailboats, one airplane and one house built. He also earned two Associates degrees. One in Science/Math and the other Arts/Culinary. 1.

In book two, the stage is set for more shooting over crawfish. The killing sickens Becky and Roland, so they leave crawfishing behind and head north to Martha´s Vineyard. Sword-fishing is appealing to Roland, but not the winter weather. The following year, they´re back in Florida on their own offshore crawfish boat. Raymond James teams with them in his own offshore boat, and together they set 3,000 traps near Walker´s Cay, Bahamas. Local natives soon arrive in skiffs to make some easy money by pulling the two men´s traps. Roland Cameron and Lester Mutt deliver a message by mail to the natives from their airplane. The chainmail convinces the locals that there´s not going to be any easy money available. Two years of good trapping are followed by two years of machinegun fire, as the two fishermen use their ´´bolt-of-lightning´´ patrol boat and airplane to convince thieves from the Miami River to stay away. A thief, his crew, and the boat vanish. The thieves return to Miami, but the Bahamian government wants no more shooting near the world famous blue marlin fishing resort on Walker´s Cay, and force the two fishermen from their waters. Roland and Becky use their plane to search Florida for a place to simply be left alone to fish for a living. The small fishing village, nestled among the Everglades on the edge of the Ten Thousand Islands, could have been the answer to their long sought after dream. Ray, Roland, and the crew members arrive in their boats to begin establishing their stone crab trapping business. It seemed too good to be true, which made Becky recall an old saying - and it was. Everglade´s City was not only the hub of American stone crab production; it was also the marijuana import capitol of the south. Events were about to begin that would forever change lives. 1.

What would you do if I told you that you could easily build wealth? That´s right! You can become a self-made millionaire, as long as you are fully motivated and are willing to work hard for it. Any individual, including yourself, is able to bring in a large amount of money and live the lifestyle he or she has always dreamed of. Mind you, when I talk about being motivated, I´m not talking about wanting money - that´s not true motivation. Every person out there wants more money, right? The difference between wanting money and being motivated by money involves the willingness to take the necessary actions in order to make it. You see, when an individual tells me that he or she wants more money, I notice he or she isn´t willing to do the work that is needed. People want to live that lavish lifestyle, but they are not willing to wake up early and work late until the sun goes down. They want to put in as few hours as possible so that they can spend time at home or on vacations. Sure, that type of people can make money, but they aren´t going to become multimillionaires. If you are looking for secrets to becoming a multimillionaire without putting in a large amount of work, you have come to the wrong place...the wrong place on planet Earth, because there is no such thing as becoming a millionaire without hard work, unless you win the lottery. Becoming a millionaire is all about doing the jobs that others stay away from. It is about getting on airplanes, getting up early, staying up late, missing your family, and putting a lot of thought into your work. The more people you reach out to and serve, the more money you are going to make. The more people who benefit from the company you have created, the more money you will earn. If you want money, you´re never going to have it unless you´re lucky. You have to be motivated enough to push yourself.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bret Kennedy.

An airplane pilot has to complete a checklist before taking off to avoid crashing and stay in the air. So too,Automatic Pilot is a TV pilot writer´s checklist to keep from crashing and stay on the air. Automatic Pilot is the definitive guide on how to create and write an original pilot. It takes you through the step-by-step process of writing your own pilot script. It is adapted from Bill Taub´s very successful UCLA Extension Writers´ Program online workshop, Writing a Spec Pilot, which he has been teaching to students all over the world since 2006. Up until the series Desperate Housewives, developed from spec pilot, burst upon the scene, and became an instant hit, nobody encouraged writers to write a spec pilot. Since then the floodgates have opened and every writer, including some of the biggest names, is either writing a spec pilot or thinking about writing one. Like the workshop itself, which crossed borders, Automatic Pilot is designed for writers no matter where they are. Whether you are writing a series about Congress or Parliament, the CIA or MI-5, a family in Bangladesh or Brooklyn, the process is the same. Whether it´s a half-hour comedy, one-hour drama, animation, or even a Web series, the steps are the same. While the odds of selling a spec pilot are slim, the chance your spec pilot will impress those in charge to hire you on staff is a good enough reason to have one. And every writer these days must have at least one spec pilot in their portfolio. Automatic Pilot is not only an insider´s guide on how to create an original pilot, it´s an audiobook that will inspire you, motivate you, and help you discover (or rediscover) a sense of freedom and joy in writing, no matter what stage you´re at - whether you´re new to the writing world or an old pro - it will be something you will return to time and again. 1.
