So, if you´ve been looking for some a social media for realtors guide...but haven´t quite found what you want.

This is a summary of Adam M. Grant´s New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-seller, Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success For generations, we have focused on the individual drivers of success: passion, hard work, talent, and luck. But today, success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others. It turns out that at work, most people operate as either takers, matchers, or givers. Whereas takers strive to get as much as possible from others and matchers aim to trade evenly, givers are the rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return. Using his own pioneering research as Wharton´s youngest tenured professor, Adam Grant shows that these styles have a surprising impact on success. Although some givers get exploited and burn out, the rest achieve extraordinary results across a wide range of industries. Combining cutting-edge evidence with captivating stories, Grant shows how one of America´s best networkers developed his connections, why the creative genius behind one of the most popular shows in television history toiled for years in anonymity, how a basketball executive responsible for multiple draft busts transformed his franchise into a winner, and how we could have anticipated Enron´s demise four years before the company collapsed - without ever looking at a single number. Praised by best-selling authors such as Susan Cain, Dan Pink, Tony Hsieh, Seth Godin, Dan Ariely, Gretchen Rubin, David Allen, Dan Gilbert, and Robert Cialdini - along with senior leaders from Google, McKinsey, Merck, Estee Lauder, Twitter, Nike, and NASA - Give and Take highlights what effective networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and leadership skills have in common. 1.

Zwei Eichhörnchen beim Chillen mit Bier, ein tanzendes Stinktier oder ein Fuchs mit Pfeife im Bierfass - Für immer scheiße aussehen versammelt die hässlichsten ausgestopften Tiere der Welt. Taxidermie - so das Fachwort für die Kunst des Ausstopfens - ist längst ein Trend in den USA und Großbritannien. In diesem Gruselkabinett der toten und doch ewig lebenden Tiere zeigt Adam R. S. Cornish, der hinter der Twitter-Sensation @CrapTaxidermy steckt, was alles passieren kann, wenn Taxidermie schrecklich schiefgeht. Ob du darüber lachen kannst oder nicht - eins steht fest: Einmal hingeschaut wird es dir nicht mehr gelingen, deine Augen von diesen liebevoll präparierten Monstern zu lösen.
One of the most popular shows to come out of Shondaland, Shonda Rhimes´s production company, is ABC´s political drama Scandal (2012?18)?a series whose tremendous success and marketing savvy led LA Times critic Mary McNamara to hail it as ´´the show that Twitter built´´ and Time magazine to name its protagonist as one of the most influential fictional characters of 2013. The series portrays a fictional Washington, DC, and features a diverse group of characters, racially and otherwise, who gather around the show´s antiheroine, Olivia Pope, a powerful crisis manager who happens to have an extramarital affair with the president of the United States. For seven seasons, audiences learned a great deal about Olivia and those interwoven in her complex world of politics and drama, including her team of ´´gladiators in suits,´´ with whom she manages the crises of Washington´s political elite. This volume, named for both Olivia´s team and the show´s fans, analyzes the communication, politics, stereotypes, and genre techniques featured in the television series while raising key questions about the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and viewing audiences. The essays range from critical looks at various members of Scandal´s ensemble, to in-depth analyses of the show´s central themes, to audience reception studies via interviews and social media analysis. Additionally, the volume contributes to research on femininity, masculinity, and representations of black womanhood on television. Ultimately, this collection offers original and timely perspectives on what was one of America´s most ´´scandalous´´ prime-time network television series.

Are you bored of the endless scroll of your social media feed? Do you swipe left before considering the human being whose face you just summarily rejected? Do you skim articles on your screen in search of intellectual stimulation that never arrives? If so, this book is the philosophical lifeline you have been waiting for. Offering a timely meditation on the profound effects of constant immersion in technology, also known as the Interface, Wish I Were Here draws on philosophical analysis of boredom and happiness to examine the pressing issues of screen addiction and the lure of online outrage. Without moralizing, Mark Kingwell takes seriously the possibility that current conditions of life and connection are creating hollowed-out human selves, divorced from their own external world. While scrolling, swiping, and clicking suggest purposeful action, such as choosing and connecting with others, Kingwell argues that repeated flicks of the finger provide merely the shadow of meaning, by reducing us to scattered data fragments, Twitter feeds, Instagram posts, shopping preferences, and text trends captured by algorithms. Written in accessible language that references both classical philosophers and contemporary critics, Wish I Were Here turns to philosophy for a cure to the widespread unease that something is amiss in modern waking life. 1.
