Learn how to... * launch a scathing dinner table takedown on your woefully unwoke relatives * craft your own sustainable decorations that bring festive cheer without compromising the 2050 Paris Agreement * splurge on Black Friday without propping up the neoliberal capitalist agenda * build a body-positive snowperson that isn't a straight white male for once * skilfully avoid eating meat or dairy without it becoming a whole thing you have to justify for an hour. Whether it's a stocking filler for a left-leaning loved one, or a Secret Santa gift for a painfully earnest colleague, A Snowflake's Guide to Christmas is the perfect gift for anyone with a bleeding heart (and a sense of humour) this holiday season.

A Simple Christmas

The New York Times bestseller by the former governor and presidential candidate-an instant classic, reissued for 2010. Christmas has become synonymous with shopping, overindulging, and stress. But according to Mike Huckabee, that was never God's intention. Going back to the Nativity, Christmas is supposed to be about simple things: faith, love, family, and hope. The hard part, in today's crazy world, is remembering that those simple things are the most precious. Huckabee recounts twelve Christmas memories that range from his childhood in Arkansas to his years as a young husband and father to his time as a governor and then a presidential candidate. These true stories will help you smile, take a deep breath, and maybe slow down your own holiday treadmill. For instance, as kids, Mike and his sister would sneak open their gifts before Christmas, play with them, then rewrap them so their parents wouldn't notice. The plan worked great until one Christmas when young Mike unwrapped a brand-new football...that was covered in mud. That led to a powerful lesson about patience and a reminder that the best Christmases are the simple ones.

The U.S. federal government, some well-known cities, members of the European Union and industrialized countries across the globe are on an economic roller coaster. This is not a new problem, not by a long shot. This dangerous ride started over one-hundred years ago when the United States was transitioning from a farming economy to an industrialized nation. Are we headed for a disaster? "Without significant policy changes, the finances of the Federal government will inevitably spiral out of control, risking severe economic and financial damage." Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke What might be coming and what is there to think about? 1) Higher taxes - Will you pay more or could you lower taxes now and forever? 2) Social Security - Is there a way to fix it? 3) Unstable financial markets - Could you try to protect yourself from a great Humpty Dumpty like fall? This problem is wider than just our own nation. Beyond our shores world financial markets are in turmoil. That is because just like the U.S. other countries have massive debt and unfunded liabilities they are not paying. Alarmingly, over 15% of the world's 202 countries and regions have a similar problem! In the middle of the storm, China called for a different worldwide reserve currency instead of the United States Dollar. If China is not successful in this quest perhaps they will resort to dramatically raising the rate of interest on debt the U.S. owes them. Either of these might cause a financial tsunami with crippling waves much greater than those that crashed into Wall Street in 1929. The threat of war is heavily involved. Syria, Iraq, Iran, ISIS and Israel seem in an ongoing state of unrest. Even if the current situations are resolved by the time this book reaches print it is only a matter of time before the next military battle occurs. The bottom line is another World War is on the horizon. This is due largely to the "ways of the West," most notably the modern financial system. Through war the world could reset the "Debt Clock" possibly to $0. There will likely be a major "disruption" of buying and selling food and supplies otherwise. It will be hard to buy and sell anything, particularly basic goods and services needed to survive. During this time of turmoil resources will be aggregated just like they were during the Great Depression. This could happen in the next 5 to 10 years. People will be numbered with a universally recognized code. Ancient writings suggest it will be "666" or the "Mark of the Beast." Why those names? A false savior (a person manifesting an animal spirit that wants to consume you like a lion) will require people to use a universally recognized chip to buy and sell food and other necessary items when markets crash again like they did in 1929. You will have a choice, do not use it! While a system of aggregated resources and safer debit cards may sound like an orderly solution, especially for desperate people it will have eternal consequences. The technology is already in most people's wallets and hands. Think of cell phones and state of the art debit card microchips. This long foretold story is happening in our lifetime. For those in the know there is nothing to fear. Like a superhero story where Superman comes to save the day, during the troubled times a real hero will arrive to purge the world once and for all of its debt and corruption. This leader will establish the center of authority and rule in the birthplace of civilization - the Middle East. Perhaps that is partially why the Middle East is such a hotbed of activity. He will suddenly appear like "flash of lightning" a phrase from the bestselling book about the apocalypse or end times. There is great hope. Do not be dismayed. Learn what you can do to prepare.

What does it feel like to find out things about your mother that you weren't supposed to know? In 2004, a chance encounter set investigative reporter Jonathan Maitland on the trail of a shocking scandal involving his own parents. Having spent his TV career hunting down rogues and conmen on behalf of the British public, it never occurred to him that the story of his own mother could be the most gripping - and disturbing - of them all. As he attempts to uncover the truth about what happened back in the 1960s, Maitland peels back the layers of his extraordinary childhood to reveal the astonishing history of his larger-than-life mother: her tempestuous marriages, her love affairs, her public suicide attempts and her outrageous money-making schemes. Entertaining, humorous, disturbing and revelatory, this movingly honest memoir will appeal to anyone who has ever had issues with their parents.
