Business Improv: Experiential Learning Exercises to Train Employees to Handle Every Situation with Success: Val Gee, Sarah Gee
Well over 150 years before Robert Redford directed and starred in “The Horse Whisperer”; inspired by Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt and Buck Brannaman, Willis J. Powell was whispering to horses and training them much in the way the fictitious character Tom Booker did in the 1985 film. Indeed this volume was first issued in 1848, a hundred and thirty-seven years before the famous movie. By then Powell had been in business for over 30 years. In this volume Powell and Rarey tell: How to break and ride colts; How to tame the most vicious horses and gentle them to all kinds of vehicles or work; How to break them of kicking or any other bad tricks; How to teach them tricks or actions; etc., etc. This volume also has Numerous valuable receipts for diseases of horses as well as tips for farmers dealing with troublesome cows as well as remedies for oxen that lie down, and won’t get up. As such, we recommend this book to anyone wanting to start a career in Horse Whispering. We also recommend it to young people who are just breaking into equine activities for either pleasure or sport, if only to give a valuable understanding of the nature of the equine breeds. In this volume Powell recounts how he read of a man who had lived a century earlier who had a secret method of taming horses and he resolved to discover the method for himself. Powell commenced his career as a horse whisperer shortly after 1811 and was so successful he was invited to Mexico to train and tame wild and troublesome horses. Thereafter Powell lived in Mexico for about 12 years, and then travelled to Cuba, Guatemala and California taming horses and making a good living doing so. 10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charities. =========== KEYWORDS/TAGS: The Real Horse Whisperer, Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt and Buck Brannaman, Willis J.

The slingshot community is growing by leaps and bounds. It´s like a runaway freight train--if you can handle the excitement, grab on and go for the ride! Mastering all the skills necessary to become an expert slingshot shooter is not an easy task. It generally takes years of dedicated practice to become an expert slingshot shooter. But the good thing is that even the learning process will be a pleasurable and rewarding experience. This book will help to accelerate the learning process. Both the slingshot and the fundamentals of shot execution are examined in great detail. Aiming and sighting a slingshot are mysteries to most--this book focuses on resolving those issues. Which hand should you use to hold the slingshot? Which eye should you use aim with? What is the main cause of fork and hand hits? Where should the sight be installed on the slingshot? All of these questions are addressed in this book
Herrchen ärgern leicht gemacht Zehn Jahre lang hat sich Herrchen von zwei verrückten Hunden auf der Nase herumtanzen lassen. Doch ab zehn werden Hunde bekanntlich ruhiger. - Ruhiger? Herrchen weiß nicht mehr, wer ihm diesen Unsinn erzählt hat. Tatsache ist, dass Luna auch im hohen Alter noch alles zusammenfaltet, was nicht bei drei auf dem Baum ist, und Wiki Selbsterbrochenes bewacht, als handle es sich um die Goldreserven von Fort Knox. Während Trainer Krause von Handauflegen bis zu mantraartigen Lalala-Gesängen alles empfiehlt, was die Fachwelt an Absurditäten zu bieten hat, wird Herrchen klar: Es gibt nichts Schöneres als vierbeinige Dickschädel, die sich nicht verbiegen lassen. Dann jedoch entpuppt sich eines Tages eine harmlos aussehende Beule bei Luna als bösartiger Tumor, und auf einmal wird Herrchen schmerzlich klar, dass auch das wildeste Hundeleben einmal zu Ende geht ... Unterhaltsam, witzig und emotional berührend wie nie!

Lola was a buckshot-riddled stray, lost on a Memphis highway. Cody was rejected from seven different homes. Ace had been sprayed with mace and left for dead on a train track. They were deemed unadoptable. Untrainable. Unsalvageable. These would become the same dogs America relied on when its worst disasters hit. In 1995, Wilma Melville volunteered as a canine search-and-rescue (SAR) handler with her Black Labrador Murphy in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing. At the time, there were only fifteen FEMA certified SAR dogs in the United States. Believing in the value of these remarkable animals to help save lives, Wilma knew many more were needed in the event of future major disasters. She made a vow to help 168 dogs receive search-and-rescue training in her lifetime-one for every Oklahoma City victim. Wilma singlehandedly established the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF) to meet this challenge. The first canine candidates-Ana, Dusty, and Harley-were a trio of golden retrievers with behavioral problems so severe the dogs were considered irredeemable and unadoptable. But with patience, discipline, and love applied during training, they proved to have the ability, agility, and stamina to graduate as SARs. Paired with a trio of firefighters, they were among the first responders searching the ruins of the World Trade Center following 9/11-setting the standard for the more than 168 of the SDF´s search-and-rescue dogs that followed. Beautiful and heart-wrenching, Hero Dogs is the story of one woman´s dream brought to fruition by dedicated volunteers and firefighters-and the bonds they forged with the incredible rescued-turned-rescuer dogs to create one of America´s most vital resources in disaster response.
