Ahora que acaba de terminar la séptima temporada de JUEGO DE TRONOS, y en espera de que llegue la octava y última, que se adivina trepidante, es un buen momento para repasar esta serie de TV, sin duda una de las mejores de los últimos años.<br /><br />Épica, compleja, atrevida Juego de Tronos certifica que la televisión ha desbancado al cine no ya solo a la hora de desarrollar historias interesantes, sino también en espectacularidad. <br /><br />En este ensayo/estudio analizamos la serie desde un punto de vista probablemente algo diferente al habitual, diciendo lo bueno pero sin ahorrarnos lo malo. Espero que lo disfrutes tanto leyéndolo como yo lo he hecho escribiéndolo y que te anime a volver a ver toda la serie desde el principio (¡y a leer las novelas de Martin!). <br />

Nail the Interview and Land a Job You Love<br /><br />Whether you’ve been working for 3 years or 30, do you want to do something new, different and a little bit righteous? Do you see yourself leading a nonprofit, healing mother earth, or creating a medical device that saves lives in the remotest parts of the world?

If you are like many of my clients, I bet you’re facing obstacles.<br /><br />Recruiters are struggling to see beyond your past job—unable to see past your titles to your true experience. The job search process feels faster, impersonal, and a little bit shallower—hiring managers are making quick decisions without doing deep. You want to articulate your skills and passion in a 60-second elevator pitch. But want to do so without sounding scattered, or worse, desperate.<br /><br />I’m Cara Heilmann, CEO of Ready Reset Go ™ and I have helped many of my clients articulate a career change. It’s started from my 3rd place finish at a high school interview competition, to interviewing thousands of candidates over 20 years as an executive recruiter, to coaching hundreds of job seekers. I’ve created a fresh, safe, and fun way to help you represent your amazing talents and passion to make a difference in this world. This process connects the worlds of improv and recruiting with a look behind the curtain of corporate recruiting to share what recruiters are really looking for. This book will help you craft compelling career stories and communicate it in a way that leaves them wanting more! In this book, you will read about these items:<br /><br />•Why the more successful you are, the more you tend to wing interview prep—and how that can work against you<br />•How getting clear on your targeted job makes everything easier<br />•How to create (at least) five riveting career stories that you should have in your toolbox<br />•How you can connect with chemistry during the interview process—even if you are the most introverted introvert<br />•How you can make a lasting positive impression that sticks well after you’ve left the interview room<br /><br />Most clients call me after they’ve tried, unsuccessfully, to land a position for months. They’ve researched interview questions and tried it on their own. Many are dejected and frustrated. Don’t wait until you get to that point. Apply this process today and get the job of your dreams and make the difference in this world that you are meant to do.<br />

<b>This touching and hilarious memoir is 100 percent Carol Burnett -- funny, irreverent, and irresistible.</b><br /><br />Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. <i>The Carol Burnett Show</i> was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won twenty-five Emmys in its remarkable eleven-year run. Now, in <i>This Time Together</i>, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another. <br /> <br />In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with stars such at Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary “Went With the Wind” skit; and things that would happen only to Carol--the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice cream emporium. <br /><br />This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.

<DIV>“A close look at how show business power corrupts . . . The dishiest read of the year.” – Janet Maslin, “Ten Favorite Books of the Year,” <I>New York Times</I></DIV><BR /> “Here’s Johnny!” Probably everyone in America knows the phrase, whether they watched every episode of <I>The Tonight Show</I> or none because they had to go to bed early on school nights. From 1962 to 1992, Johnny Carson and his <I>Tonight Show</I> dominated the American consciousness.<BR /><BR /> Henry Bushkin was Carson’s best friend and lawyer during that period, and his book is a tautly rendered and remarkably nuanced portrait of Carson, revealing not only how he truly was, but why. Bushkin explains why Carson, a voracious (and very talented) womanizer, felt he always had to be married; why he couldn’t visit his son in the hospital and wouldn’t attend his mother’s funeral; and much more. <I>Johnny Carson</I> is by turns shocking, poignant, and uproarious — written with a novelist’s eye for detail, a screenwriter’s ear for dialogue, and a knack for comic timing that Carson himself would relish.<BR /><BR /> “A fascinating book about a complex man.” — <I>Pittsburgh Post-Gazette</I><BR /><BR /> “Like <I>The Tonight Show</I>, the book has many a merry moment . . . [Johnny Carson] was also one of a kind, and is missed. This book brings a bit of him back.” — <I>St. Louis Post-Dispatch</I><BR /><BR /><DIV>A <I>People</I> magazine Top Ten Book of the Year</DIV>

Jaime Primak Sullivan, outspoken star of Bravo TV’s <i>Jersey Belle</i>, offers no-nonsense Southern-spun advice for navigating life and love with her signature charismatic Jersey charm in this winning fish-out-of-water tale.<BR><BR>Jamie Primak Sullivan, a Jersey-bred, tough-as-nails PR maven—and unlikely transplant in an upscale suburb of Birmingham, Alabama—has spent her entire life crossing the line: whether she’s pushing the boundaries of what proper Southern ladies consider to be “polite behavior” or literally traversing the Mason-Dixon line in the name of love. She isn’t afraid to say what everyone is thinking when it comes to love, sex, friendship, and many other topics that are all-too-often sugar-coated in polite Southern company. But when a meet-cute scenario right out of a Nora Ephron movie upends her life, Jaime finds herself a reluctant “knish out of water,” smack-dab in the Deep South starting a life with her new husband, the perfect Southern gentleman.<BR> <BR>In <i>The Southern Education of a Jersey Girl</i>, Jaime shares hard-learned lessons on Southern etiquette, deep-fried foods, college football, and matters of the heart while living in the heart of Dixie, with her quintessential ball-busting, bullsh*t free, and side-splitting Jersey twist.
