The inventions and inspiration of Benjamin Franklin and how they've stood the test of time What would you do if you lived in a community without a library, hospital, post office, or fire department? If you were Benjamin Franklin, you'd set up these organizations yourself. Franklin also designed the lightning rod, suggested the idea of daylight savings time, and invented bifocals-all inspired by his common sense and intelligence. In this informative book, Gene Barretta brings Benjamin Franklin's genius to life, deepening our appreciation for one of the most influential figures in American history. Now & Ben is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

As originally conceived by the legendary Benjamin Graham, traditional value investing involves purchasing relatively stable stocks and companies at a percentage below their intrinsic value. But this approach contains many hidden, U.S.-centric assumptions that simply don’t work well in today’s high-growth emerging markets. In this book, leading global value investor Jeffrey Towson extends and modernizes value investing, helping you apply its core principles while you access tremendous opportunities available in today’s fastest-growing markets. Towson introduces the powerful Value Point system that grows out of his experience on the elite investing team selected by Prince Alwaleed, the "Arabian Warren Buffett." While retaining Graham’s relentless focus on price and quality, he shows how to integrate three crucial additional forms of value into your stock assessments: the value of political access in a government-infused investment world, the value of reputation in a world of colliding markets, actors and biases, and the value of capabilities in a multi-local world. Building on these techniques, Towson presents a complete investment playbook for the next five years. Next, he shows how to invest for the next twenty years—successfully navigating the titanic market collisions that will batter investors who aren’t prepared for them.

THE GOOD NEIGHBOR—ACTUALLY, THE BEST A woman couldn’t ask for a better neighbor than Ben Mayeaux. He’d saved Stephanie Webber and her daughter from their burning house, and this single mom couldn’t thank him enough. Kind, strong and handsome, Ben had opened his home to them and helped in more ways than she could count, and soon Stephanie’s feelings were taking on a more-than-neighborly slant. When days of healing and house repair turned into tender evenings, Stephanie wondered if this tried-and-true bachelor’s home—and heart— would open permanently to a wife and rambunctious five-year-old. And if they did, could she heal her own past wounds, and love again?

Katie could see her mom watching them and she stopped smiling now. She ate
her food and after supper, she went to the barn as Ben and her parents were

‘It’s amazing how some people can light up a room just by stepping into it. Ben was twenty-one months old and full of smiles. He spread happiness simply by being there.’ In 1991 Kerry and her son Ben followed Kerry’s parents to live on the Greek island of Kos. On 24 July, she was at work when her mum Christine arrived crying uncontrollably. Ben had been playing outside, and then disappeared. Someone had taken Ben. In her heartbreaking memoir, Kerry describes the agony of being initially suspected by the police, which meant the closure of airport and ferry terminals were delayed, the early sightings that raised their hopes and the hoaxes which dashed them completely. And the unbearable pain of knowing her baby boy was alone somewhere without his mum. Back in the UK, the long years of waiting and hoping have been difficult on the whole family. Kerry has raised her daughter, Leighanna, while following up more than 300 leads. In 2011 they had a breakthrough when South Yorkshire Police agreed to work with the Greek authorities to reopen the case. The chance that Ben will read about himself and come home becomes more real every day. All of Kerry's royalties from the sale of this book will go toward the Help Find Ben campaign.

Ben Hogan's accomplishments on the golf course are the stuff of legends, but his life off it was exceedingly private. In this biography, author Tim Scott demonstrates why such public perception was not representative of Hogan's personality, offering a firsthand glimpse into the famous golfer's humor and sensitivity. Hogan wasn't perfect, and many of his fine qualities were never made public until now, as Tim Scott shares his personal experience with Hogan as well as Hogan's friends, family, and acquaintances. Along the way, a clearer picture emerges of Hogan as a man, a golfer, a friend, and a husband.

For the love of a woman...For the love of his people...For the love of God...Ben-Hur: The Odyssey a legend lives again. A.D. 59 A shadow falls over the Roman Empire as Nero, the young emperor, begins to assert a foreboding independence. Disregarding the counsel of his advisers, he openly flaunts his unfaithfulness to his wife Octavia, and then orders the murder of his scheming mother Agrippina. Into this looming storm comes Judah Ben-Hur, his wife Esther and their friend, the great apostle Paul, who has been arrested for his missionary activities. Paul has appealed his conviction to Nero, and Judah - the founder of the church in Rome - offers to defend him, setting up a fateful collision of two worlds. Judah Ben-Hur, one of literature's great fictional heroes, rides again in this stirring sequel to the classic novel by General Lew Wallace. Like its predecessor, Ben-Hur: The Odyssey is woven into a solidly historical tapestry. Great events are brought to life from the first century's most turbulent decade, in this epic tale of love, passion and faith.
