The only thing you’ll find on the summit of Mount Everest is a divine view. The things that really matter lie far below. – Peak Marcello After fourteen-year-old Peak Marcello is arrested for scaling a New York City skyscraper, he's left with two choices: wither away in Juvenile Detention or go live with his long-lost father, who runs a climbing company in Thailand. But Peak quickly learns that his father's renewed interest in him has strings attached. Big strings. As owner of Peak Expeditions, he wants his son to be the youngest person to reach the Everest summit--and his motives are selfish at best. Even so, for a climbing addict like Peak, tackling Everest is the challenge of a lifetime. But it's also one that could cost him his life. Roland Smith has created an action-packed adventure about friendship, sacrifice, family, and the drive to take on Everest, despite the incredible risk. The story of Peak’s dangerous ascent—told in his own words—is suspenseful, immediate, and impossible to put down.

“This book is a breakthrough, a lyrical, powerful, science-based narrative that actually shows us how to get better (much better) at the things we care about.”—Seth Godin, author of Linchpin “Anyone who wants to get better at anything should read [Peak]. Rest assured that the book is not mere theory. Ericsson’s research focuses on the real world, and he explains in detail, with examples, how all of us can apply the principles of great performance in our work or in any other part of our lives.”—Fortune Anders Ericsson has made a career studying chess champions, violin virtuosos, star athletes, and memory mavens. Peak distills three decades of myth-shattering research into a powerful learning strategy that is fundamentally different from the way people traditionally think about acquiring new abilities. Whether you want to stand out at work, improve your athletic or musical performance, or help your child achieve academic goals, Ericsson’s revolutionary methods will show you how to improve at almost any skill that matters to you. “The science of excellence can be divided into two eras: before Ericsson and after Ericsson. His groundbreaking work, captured in this brilliantly useful book, provides us with a blueprint for achieving the most important and life-changing work possible: to become a little bit better each day.”—Dan Coyle, author of The Talent Code “Ericsson’s research has revolutionized how we think about human achievement. If everyone would take the lessons of this book to heart, it could truly change the world.”—Joshua Foer, author of Moonwalking with Einstein

We often strive for our peak of accomplishment: peak health, peak wealth, peak performance. The idea for this anthology came from a further question that is both simple but provocative: "What if we could exceed the upper limits of our performance?" What would happen if, rather than focusing on being physically well, we imagined ourselves physically vibrant? What would happen if rather than seeking 100% of the good that might come to us, we pushed past our boundaries, and pictured what 112% might look like? What would happen if we took our upper limits of vision as a baseline, rather than a ceiling? Could we be happier, more abundant, and healthier than our wildest dreams? That's what Peak Vitality is all about. It calls us to examine the thresholds of our thinking, feeling and experiencing then go beyond what we believe we're capable of. Includes chapters from bestselling authors such as Wayne Dyer, Christiane Northrup, Candace Pert, Deepak Chopra, Julia Cameron, Riane Eisler, Dean Ornish, and many more!

The authors of this spirited book don't believe that oblivion is necessarily the destiny of urban areas. Instead, they believe that intelligent planning and visionary leadership can help cities meet the impending crises, and look to existing initiatives in cities around the world. Rather than responding with fear (as a legion of doomsaying prognosticators have done), they choose hope. This is not a book filled with "blue sky" theory (although blue skies will be a welcome result of its recommendations). Rather, it is packed with practical ideas, some of which are already working in cities today. It frankly admits that our cities have problems that will worsen if they are not addressed, but it suggests that these problems are solvable. And the time to begin solving them is now.

PERFECT FOR THE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATOR, CARE GIVER AND PARENTS ALIKE, Peak With Books shows how to use popular children's literature to build reading, writing, and cognitive skills in an inquiry-based environment. Instead of using a "skill and drill" approach, the authors employ conversations, questions, and, meaning-based activities to stimulate children's curiosity, confidence, and thirst for knowledge. The authors' balanced literacy program teaches strong reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. To develop those skills, each chapter's central storybook is accompanied by strategies that employ art, music, drama, finger rhymes, poetry, math and science activities. Graphics and children's presentations illustrate how research and discovery through fiction can enliven whole-class and individually directed projects.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich VWL - Mikroökonomie, allgemein, Note: 2,0, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Veranstaltung: Seminarthema: Preisbildung auf regulierten Märkten, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Seminararbeit beschäftigt sich mit der Theorie des Peak-Load Pricing (PLP), die sich in der Literatur als Antwort auf Probleme der öffentlichen Versorgungseinrichtungen wie der Elektrizitätswirtschaft und Telekommunikation entwickelte. Die Produkte dieser Branchen sind nicht oder nur zu prohibitiv hohen Kosten lagerfähig und mit einer periodisch schwankenden Nachfrage konfrontiert. Hierfür bietet das PLP einen Lösungsansatz der folgende Ziele verfolgt: erstens die Reduzierung der Spitzenlastnachfrage mittels eines höheren Spitzenlastpreises das eine Kapazitätserweiterung verhindert, und zweitens die Verlagerung der Spitzenlastnachfrage (peak) in die Schwachlastperiode (off-peak) mittels eines niedrigeren Preises in der Schwachlastperiode. Die Konsequenz ist sowohl die Verbesserung der Kapazitätsauslastung als auch die Reduzierung der Betriebs- und Kapazitätskosten (KapK). Im Kontext von öffentlichen Versorgungseinrichtungen und solchen Peak-Load Problemen brachten Ökonomen wie Boiteux (1949), Steiner (1957), Hirshleifer (1958) und Williamson (1966) u. a. dazu, Peak-Load Pricing Modelle mit dem Hintergrund der Wohlfahrtsmaximierung zu entwickeln. Inhalt dieser Seminararbeit soll sein, das Modell des PLP darzustellen und zu erläutern, wobei im zweiten Kapitel zunächst der Gegenstand des PLP aufgezeigt werden soll. In Kapitel 3 erfolgen die von Steiner (1957) aufgestellten Annahmen, worauf im Anschluss die graphische und analytische Herleitung der optimalen Preisstruktur und Kapazität des Modells folgt. Da das PLP Modell nach Steiner (1957) auf sehr restriktiven Annahmen beruht, werden in Kapitel 4 die wichtigsten Modellmodifikationen und die Effekte von Price-Caps auf das PLP dargestellt und erläutert. Weiterhin kam es in der Literatur zu Weiterentwicklungen des Modells basierend auf realitätsnäheren Annahmen, welche aus Platzgründen in Kapitel 5 nur kurz angerissen werden. Im sechsten Kapitel soll anhand der Elektrizitätsindustrie die empirische Evidenz des PLP Modells untersucht werden. Die Arbeit schließt mit einer kurzen Zusammenfassung.

After fifteen years of rising to the pinnacle of the hospitality industry, Chip Conley's company was suddenly undercapitalized and overexposed in the, post-9/11 economy. For relief and inspiration, Conley, the CEO and founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality, turned to psychologist Abraham Maslow's iconic Hierarchy of Needs. This book explores how Conley's company "the second largest boutique hotelier in the world" overcame the storm that hit the travel industry by applying Maslow's theory to what Conley identifies as the key Relationship Truths in business with Employees, Customers and Investors. Part memoir, part theory, and part application, the book tells of Joie de Vivre's remarkable transformation while providing real world examples from other companies and showing how readers can bring about similar changes in their work and personal lives. Conley explains how to understand the motivations of employees, customers, bosses, and investors, and use that understanding to foster better relationships and build an enduring and profitable corporate culture.

In recent years, the concept of “peak oil”—the moment when global oil production peaks and a train of economic, social, and political catastrophes accompany its subsequent decline—has captured the imagination of a surprisingly large number of Americans, ordinary citizens as well as scholars, and created a quiet, yet intense underground movement. In Peak Oil, Matthew Schneider-Mayerson takes readers deep inside the world of “peakists,” showing how their hopes and fears about the postcarbon future led them to prepare for the social breakdown they foresee—all of which are fervently discussed and debated via websites, online forums, videos, and novels. By exploring the worldview of peakists, and the unexpected way that the fear of peak oil and climate change transformed many members of this left-leaning group into survivalists, Schneider-Mayerson builds a larger analysis of the rise of libertarianism, the role of oil in modern life, the political impact of digital technologies, the racial and gender dynamics of post-apocalyptic fantasies, and the social organization of environmental denial.
