The Handbook of Stable Value Investments: Fabozzi
Rental property is undoubtedly one of the most stable investment options. This explains why it is a retiree’s dream investment vehicle given that even if you don’t do much, you can be assured of steady rental income every single month. All you need to do is to maintain the property well to ensure it is in a good condition, then market it to new tenants whenever there is a vacancy and you are good to go. This doesn’t mean that rental property is only meant for retirees; even if you are in your 20s, if you invest in rental property, you can be assured of a steady income for the rest of your life. But while any rental property is a potential cash cow, the truth is that tenants are complicated; you could have tenants from hell who don’t pay rent as agreed, who leave your property in a mess, who don’t want to follow various rules within the tenancy agreement and much more. This can make owning rental property a living nightmare for you as a landlord. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. What can you do about it? Well, you could join the section 8 housing scheme to mitigate many of the risks that come with rental property. What you need to understand however is that a good number of landlords who apply have their applications rejected for not fulfilling the requirements of the program. This means you just don’t enroll your property for the program just because you cannot attract tenants or are having problems with your tenants! Lucky for you, this book has all the information you need to help you throughout the process of enrolling your property for the section 8 rental program. In this book, you will discover: What the section 8 rental housing program is, as well as what it entails Why you should become a section 8 landlord Your responsibilities as a section 8 landlord 1.

Edward Luttwak´s shocking 1968 handbook showed, step-by-step, how governments could be overthrown and inspired anti-coup precautions around the world. In addition to these instructions, his revised handbook offers a new way of looking at political power-one that considers the vulnerability of stable democracies after prolonged economic distress.
A practical handbook for every manager charged with leading teams to creative brilliance, from the author of The Accidental Creative and Die Empty. Doing the work and leading the work are very different things. When you make the transition from maker to manager, you give ownership of projects to your team even though you could do them yourself better and faster. You´re juggling expectations from your manager, who wants consistent, predictable output from an inherently unpredictable creative process. And you´re managing the pushback from your team of brilliant, headstrong, and possibly overqualified creatives. Leading talented, creative people requires a different skill set than the one many management books offer. As a consultant to creative companies, Todd Henry knows firsthand what prevents creative leaders from guiding their teams to success, and in Herding Tigers he provides a bold new blueprint to help you be the leader your team needs. Learn to lead by influence instead of control. Discover how to create a stable culture that empowers your team to take bold creative risks. And learn how to fight to protect the time, energy, and resources they need to do their best work. Full of stories and practical advice, Herding Tigers will give you the confidence and the skills to foster an environment where clients, management, and employees have a product they can be proud of and a process that works.
From a Vice magazine columnist whose beat is ´´the future,´´ here is entertaining speculation featuring both authoritative research and a bit of mischief: a look at how humanity is likely to weather such happenings as the day nuclear war occurs, the day the global internet goes down, the day we run out of effective antibiotics, and the day immortality is achieved. If you live on planet Earth you´re probably scared of the future. How could you not be? Some of the world´s most stable democracies are looking pretty shaky. Technology is invading personal relationships and taking over jobs. Relations among the three superpowers-the US, China, and Russia-are growing more complicated and dangerous. A person watching the news has to wonder: is it safe to go out there or not? Taking inspiration from his virally popular Vice column ´´How Scared Should I Be?,´´ Mike Pearl in The Day It Finally Happens games out many of the ´´could it really happen?´´ scenarios we´ve all speculated about, assigning a probability rating, and taking us through how it would unfold. He explores what would likely occur in dozens of possible scenarios-among them the final failure of antibiotics, the loss of the world´s marine life, a complete ban on guns in the US, and even the arrival of aliens-and reports back from the future, providing a clear picture of how the world would look, feel, and even smell in each of these instances. For fans of such bestsellers as What If? and The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook, The Day It Finally Happens is about taking future events that we don´t really understand and getting to know them in close detail. Pearl makes science accessible and is a unique form of existential therapy, offering practical answers to some of our most worrisome questions. Thankfully, the odds of humanity´s pulling through look pretty good.
