A hilarious and heartrending account of one mother´s journey to understand and reconnect with her high-spirited preteen son - a true story sure to beguile parents grappling with a child´s bewildering behavior. Popular literature is filled with the stories of self-sacrificing mothers bravely tending to their challenging children. Katherine Ellison offers a different kind of tale. Shortly after Ellison, an award-winning investigative reporter, and her twelve-year-old son, Buzz, were both diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, she found herself making such a hash of parenting that the two of them faced three alternatives: He´d go to boarding school; she´d go AWOL; or they´d make it their full-time job to work out their problems together. They decided to search for a solution while Ellison investigated what genuine relief, if any, might be found in the confusing array of goods sold by the modern mental health industry. The number of diagnoses for childhood attention and behavior issues is exploding, leaving parents and educators on a confusing chase to find the best kind of help for each child. Buzz, a pause-resistor of a memoir, brings much relief. It is immensely engaging, laugh-out-loud funny, and honest-and packed with helpful insights. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Ellison.

Should You Invest in Bitcoins? Cryptocurrency is gaining explosive popularity and captured public recognition... although its been around for a few years Bitcoin is the first digital cryptocurrency and it has gained a lot of attention and acceptance by the public and many retailers alike. A bitcoin is basically an encryption key, kept in the ledger of its trader. Ownership of the encryption key entitles the trader to trade it for goods, services, or other types of cryptocurrency, with names like Ethereum, Ripple and Litecoin.

While not all merchants currently accept Bitcoin, its price has been rising, its share of the total cryptocurrency market share is now less than 50% as the total market size of other Crypto-currencies combined like Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple and many others Before you can decide if you should invest in Bitcoins there are a few things you need to understand and consider. This Bitcoin Buzz Report will help you understand the basics of working with this popular currency. .

Bailey Weggins, the Manhattan-based thirtysomething true-crime journalist, is in a good place. She´s enjoying her regular gig at Buzz, a leading celebrity magazine, getting freelance work, and hoping her first book will garner attention. In the love department, she´s finally back in the game with her recently-turned-exclusive boyfriend, Beau Regan. When Beau heads out of town one early December weekend, Bailey accepts an invitation from her office friend Jessie to a music mogul´s house in the country, hoping for a fun, relaxing getaway. But a weird tension settles over the houseguests - a glamorous crowd that includes the famously thin supermodel Devon Barr. An impending snowstorm only adds to the unease. So when Devon´s lifeless body is found in her bed, Bailey immediately suspects foul play: She can´t stop thinking of the day before, when a frightened Devon shivered in the woods and pleaded, "I have to get out of here. . . . It´s not safe for me." When Bailey starts to nose around, she finds herself a moving target - running closer to the truth and straight into danger. With her trademark irreverent wit, Bailey is a heroine who keeps us laughing while on the edge of our seats. New and longtime fans alike will devour this eagerly awaited mystery. 1.

Eighteen-year-old Connors date, Gena, takes one look at his manhood and bursts out laughing. She takes pictures with her phone and hurries away. Dejected, Connor goes home but walks in on his mother, whos with a very well-endowed stranger. Later that night, his mom Mattie learns that Connor saw her. Connors devastated and strips to show her why. When he threatens to go jump off a bridge, Mattie knows she has to keep his spirits up somehow. Because hes standing nude in front of her, and shes sitting down, she has an idea-but what shes about to do will have to stay a secret because it breaks a big taboo. What mom wouldnt break the rules to encourage her son to stay upbeat about life? ----- PG Excerpt ----- Mattie, Connors mother, leaned down to put more beers on the table for a trio of twenty-something guys, and she pretended not to notice how their eyes dropped to her cleavage, revealed in the loose, blue, deep-V pullover. Her 36C boobs were easy to see in a blue lace bra. She was almost old enough to be their mother, but they were semi-regulars who had tipped her well in the past. She hoped her ongoing boob show, plus their beer buzz, would keep their generosity flowing just like the beer. There you go, guys. Will there be anything else? Nah, were fine, said one guy, without looking up from the deep V revealing her boobs. Mattie laughed. She wasnt very tall, and her lack of height emphasized her bust. Her constant walking as a barmaid here at the Grillin Gator Bar kept her short legs toned and shapely. While her butt was bigger than she liked, she knew it still attracted male attention as she walked around the bar and bent over to serve customers. Right now, she knew that a guy named Hank was sitting behind her, almost certainly looking as far up her snug little black skirt as he could. Hank drove through this area a couple of times a year on business and had become a casual friend. Now she straightened up and turned around. Hank was still looking down at her bare legs, before he raised his gaze and grinned. Nice to see you again, Mattie. I always think of you when my routes going to bring me this way. His attention dropped back down to her boobs. Im flattered. The truth is, I think of you, too. Mattie ran a hand through her short, brown curls, which came from her Irish heritage. She was forty-one years old and had never married. Connors biological father had just been a one-time hookup.
The much-anticipated debut from the Pulitzer Prize - winning New York Times reporter, Boy on Ice is a moving human story and behind-the-scenes account of a life lived in the glare of sporting fame. The tragic death of hockey star Derek Boogaard at 28 was front-page news across the country in 2011 and helped shatter the silence about violence and concussions in professional sports. Now, in a gripping work of narrative nonfiction, acclaimed reporter John Branch tells the shocking story of Boogaard´s life and heartbreaking death. Boy on Ice is the richly told story of a mountain of a man who made it to the absolute pinnacle of his sport. Widely regarded as the toughest man in the NHL, Boogaard was a gentle man off the ice but a merciless fighter on it. With great narrative drive, Branch recounts Boogaard´s unlikely journey from lumbering kid playing pond-hockey on the prairies of Saskatchewan, so big his skates would routinely break beneath his feet; to his teenaged junior hockey days, when one brutal outburst of violence brought Boogaard to the attention of professional scouts; to his days and nights as a star enforcer with the Minnesota Wild and the storied New York Rangers, capable of delivering career-ending punches and intimidating entire teams. But, as Branch reveals, behind the scenes Boogaard´s injuries and concussions were mounting and his mental state was deteriorating, culminating in his early death from an overdose of alcohol and painkillers. Based on months of investigation and hundreds of interviews with Boogaard´s family, friends, teammates, and coaches, Boy on Ice is a brilliant work for fans of Michael Lewis´s The Blind Side or Buzz Bissinger´s Friday Night Lights. This is a book that raises deep and disturbing questions about the systemic brutality of contact sports - from peewees to professionals - and the damage that reaches far beyond the game. 1.
