With the launch of her newest book, alternative therapist Carol Tuttle is turning long-standing fashion and beauty myths on their head, and helping rescue fashion victims who repeatedly fall prey to the latest trends. Based around Tuttle´s years-in-the-making, breakthrough Beauty Profiling system, Dressing Your Truth identifies four main types of women based on their physical features, body language, personality, and behavior tendencies. Tuttle´s system is resoundingly different than any of the fashion/beauty makeovers you´ve seen in magazines or on TV - instead of just focusing on your outward appearance, it helps awaken your inner truth, bringing a deeper understanding of your true personal style, a better self-image, and a more authentic sense of your own beauty. Tuttle´s healing, therapeutic approach to fashion and beauty teaches how the supermodel standard has failed women, identifies the most common fashion mistakes and shopping tendencies, explains the top seven fashion myths, and much, much more. If you´ve ever felt defeated in a dressing room, faced a closet full of clothes but still felt you had nothing to wear, or thought you had to be skinny to be beautiful, Dressing Your Truth will be a much-appreciated reality check that will help you discover and celebrate your own, unique beauty. This book offers the listener the experience of taking the first step in discovering your beauty profile in her Dressing Your Truth do-it-yourself beauty makeover system. The author does not teach you how to dress your truth in this book, but refers the listener to her online Dressing Your Truth learning portal which she created as the complementary learning experience to the book. 1.

Uncertain. Confused. Overwhelmed. Many Christians feel bombarded by the messages they hear and the trends they see in our rapidly changing world. How can we resist being conformed to the pattern of this world? What will faithfulness to Christ look like in these tumultuous times? How can we be true to the gospel in a world where myths and false visions of the world so often prevail? In This is Our Time, Trevin Wax provides snapshots of 21st-century American life in order to help Christians understand the times. By analyzing our common beliefs and practices (smartphone habits, entertainment intake, our view of shopping, sex, marriage, politics, and life´s purpose), Trevin helps us see through the myths of society to the hope of the gospel. As faithful witnesses to Christ, Trevin writes, we must identify the longing behind society´s most cherished myths (what is good, true, beautiful), expose the lie at the heart of these myths (what is false and damaging), and show how the gospel tells a better story - one that exposes the lie but satisfies the deeper longing. 1.

This edited collection provides an original and comprehensive take on retail crime and its prevention, by combining international data and multidisciplinary perspectives from criminologists, economists, geographers, police officers and other experts. Drawing on environmental criminology theory and situational crime prevention, it focusses on crime and safety in retail environments but also the interplay between individuals, products and settings such as stores, commercial streets and shopping malls, as well as the wider context of situational conditions of the supply chain in which crime occurs. Chapters offer state-of-the-art research on retail crime from a range of countries such as Australia, Brazil, Israel, Italy, Sweden, the UK and the USA. This methodological and well-researched study is devoted to both academics and practitioners from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds whose common interest is to prevent retail crime and overall retail loss. The chapters ´Crime in a Scandinavian Shopping Centre´ and ´Perceived Safety in a Shopping Centre´ are published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license at link.springer.com.
(2009/MEMPHIS EXPLORATIONS) Hardcover, 22x29 cm, 106 pages of rare color photos. Introduction I met Judy about five years ago even though we grew up in the same town and have much in common — not the least of which is a love for Elvis. While shopping one day at Nordstrom, where Judy works, a saleswoman noticed my Elvis purse and asked me, ´´Do you know Judy up in petites? She´s an Elvis fan too.´´ Curious, I went up the escalator, looking for a woman who might be my age or older. I put my pink ´´Love Me Tender´´ bag on the counter and asked, ´´Are you Judy? I hear you´re an Elvis fan. So am I.´´ Within minutes, Judy´s warmth and effervescent personality encircled me like a hug and I realized she was no average Elvis fan. We traded Elvis milestones like Elvis fans do when they meet for the first time: How many times did you see him perform in concert? How many times have you been to Graceland? When did you first love Elvis? And then came the bombshell — the revelations that trumped anything I had to offer in my modest Elvis life: Judy not only met Elvis, she kissed him four times, sat ringside for the iconic ´´68 Comeback Special,´´ and was one of those famous ´´superfans´´ who author Jerry Hopkins profiled in his 1971 Elvis biography. And then, almost as an afterthought, she mentioned her photographs. After regaining my composure I realized Judy was what we call in´the newspaper business ´´a good story.´´ I suggested our local newspaper, where I worked at the time, profile Judy in the arts and entertainment section. There she was, in full color, with a big smile on her face, telling her story and talking about her photos. The newspaper reprinted an image of Elvis with his arm around Judy. And here we are today; the book you are holding is the result of that serendipitous meeting at Nordstrom. This book took a lot of coaxing. Judy never gave up her devotion to Elvis, but after he died she moved on with her life, as many of us did. She married a wonderful man named Doug and raised two children. She became an All-Star saleswoman at Nordstrom. And she kept her most precious candids and concert photos tucked away in scrapbooks, hidden at a friend´s house for safekeeping. Although Judy is a member of that small network of Elvis fans who shared candid moments with him in the 60s and 70s, it´s not in her nature to talk about herself. But you´ll soon discover this book has much to offer. Judy´s stories take you back to the time when Elvis was at his peak. She shares hilarious stories about camping out at Graceland, waiting for any chance to see Elvis. She talks about the signed condolence card she got from Elvis and Priscilla when Judy´s mother was killed. And then there are the photographs — some of the most recognizable images in the Elvis world — and not until now is Judy getting the credit she deserves for taking them. Judy taught herself how to take photos so she could keep for a lifetime her memories of Elvis. And now she shares them with you, and even more importantly, puts the images together with the real stories behind them. You´re in for a treat. Carla T. Savalli February 2009

Are you overwhelmed by financial difficulties? Have you accumulated too many debts that are struggling you to death? Or have you made poor investment decisions and are now unable to enjoy money? According to a research conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), ´´the majority of Americans do not plan for a predictable event such as retirement or children´s college education. Most importantly, people do not make provisions for unexpected events and emergencies, leaving themselves and the economy exposed to shocks´´. Four out of five American adults are faced with economic insecurity at some point in their lives, and the majority of Americans lack basic numeracy and knowledge of fundamental economic principle. There is also a sharp disconnection between self-reported financial knowledge and financial knowledge as measured by financial literacy quizzes. Even those who give their best knowledge score poorly on quizzes. Moreover, while many believe they are pretty good at dealing with day-to-day financial matters, in actuality, they engage in financial behaviors that generate expenses and fees, overdrawing checking accounts, making late credit card payments, or exceeding limits on credit card charges. Comparing terms of financial contracts and shopping around before making financial decisions are not at all common among the population. How would you like to change your financial life and protect your family from an economic disaster? In this book, you´ll discover a step-by-step and easy-to-follow guide that reveals the secret to effectively save money, as well as the fundamental and basic economic principle everybody ought to know about. 1.
