" Whether called "the good people," "the little people," or simply "them," fairies are familiar from their appearances in Shakespeare's plays, Disney's films, and points in between. In many cultures, however, fairies are not just the stuff of distant legend or literature: they are real creatures with supernatural powers. The Good People presents nineteen essays that focus on the actual fairies of folklore -- fairies of past and living traditions who affected, and still affect, people's lives in myriad ways.

Would it not put fear in your heart to know you could only talk to your mother or father through an interpreter? Wrong is wrong, and right is right! Most of us are guilty of wrong, but our story is not over. Some can walk upright and praise his name but still be sick in the spirit. I can only imagine the fear of knowing you can only talk to the Creator through an interpreter. I could not bring myself to bear witness to such an atrocity. Though I must admit, if that is what helps you to understand the blessings of heaven, then so be it. Love is love, no matter the language, and so shall hate be the same. No. It’s truly hard for them to see tomorrow’s sun shining through. They know at any moment the raft of Christ shall return. They must get as many soldiers as possible to fight for these times. They are strong enough to say it is a brighter tomorrow, but we are reaching because we live in dark times. They are quick to tell those they seek to bring to Christ that you must remain steadfast; we can only help you by doing things our way, with prayer. We all know they weren’t always at this point where Christ’s soldiers worship them and bless them with cars and expensive jewelry. It took time and work for them to receive all these gifts from people. What reason does a man of God have to give the blessings he or she receives back to the people of God? They earned those treasures by speaking God’s word. No; we all get it and accept it. The silence has nuzzled its way in with torture that can only be described from aggregated accounts, such as the sodomy of a child, blatant discriminatory acts, as well as the need to legally facilitate poverty in the streets of God-blessed America. We do understand the need for pertinent obligations overseas; for a senator’s pay increase, not to mention vacation; for prior commitments; or even for good old-fashioned threats to the solvency of our nation.

The Law of Good People

Why good people sometimes do bad things: Motivated reasoning and unethical behaviour. Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, 25(1), 28–39; Kidder, ...

Currently, the dominant enforcement paradigm is based on the idea that states deal with 'bad people' - or those pursuing their own self-interests - with laws that exact a price for misbehavior through sanctions and punishment. At the same time, by contrast, behavioral ethics posits that 'good people' are guided by cognitive processes and biases that enable them to bend the laws within the confines of their conscience. In this illuminating book, Yuval Feldman analyzes these paradigms and provides a broad theoretical and empirical comparison of traditional and non-traditional enforcement mechanisms to advance our understanding of how states can better deal with misdeeds committed by normative citizens blinded by cognitive biases regarding their own ethicality. By bridging the gap between new findings of behavioral ethics and traditional methods used to modify behavior, Feldman proposes a 'law of good people' that should be read by scholars and policymakers around the world.

Why is it, they ask, that so large a segment of public can go so wrong in both how they come to form the opinions they do and how they fail to appreciate the moral consequences of acting on them."--Publisher's description.

Most CEOs say the same thing: finding good people is difficult, and a matter of luck rather than skill, as being good on paper doesn't always translate to being good in practice. In Good People, venture capitalist Anthony Tjan explains the five tensions that make "goodness" so uncommon in business, and features numerous profiles of "good people" who are extraordinary leaders and motivators in their fields, including Dominic Barton, Managing Director of McKinsey & Co and Gary Knell, CEO of National Geographic. Establishing a new vocabulary for understanding and talking about the meaning of "good," both in business and beyond, Tjan offers practical advice for advancing the only durable competitive advantage for organizations: a set of values for developing oneself and others.

WHY BAD STUFF HAPPENS TO GOOD PEOPLE: is a book loaded with intrigue, suspense, mind disturbing questions, and eventually the answer given somewhere in the book, not disclosed. Many questions both Christians and secularists ask concerning this topic is similar concerning the guilt and innocence of children, which are answered here with no apology. You may be shocked but you may also be the judge! This read is compared to twelve other writers on the subject with diverse and bizarre answers to the question WHY, which are challenged here and in my opinion offering no answer to this hunting question of WHY. “The Final Answer” is in this book found nowhere else in any literature.

The Power of Good People

Time for Para and Ali to say 'Nanri' Writing The Power of Good People has provided us with a wonderful opportunity to thank those people who kept Para safe.

Para was barely five years old when civil war erupted in Sri Lanka. Nearly three decades later it ended in appalling horror and bloodshed. Tens of thousands of innocent civilians died. Survival required courage, ingenuity — and the kindness of strangers. This is Para’s story of survival against all odds. In May 2009, Sri Lanka’s long and dreadful civil war was finally brought to an horrific end. Ruthlessly driven to a small strip of land on the tip of the island’s north-east coast, tens of thousands of innocent civilians died, smashed by artillery, killed by snipers, denied medical treatment, and starved to death beneath the baking sun. This ferocious battle consolidated and highlighted the terrors of the preceding twenty-six years of war, characterised by vicious murders and desperate acts from both sides, where civilians were bombarded, kidnapped, raped, and tortured with impunity. In such a vicious war, was there any room for humanity? Para Paheer’s story could be one of tens of thousands, except that he lived to tell the world of the horrors; but more importantly, to record and pay tribute to those courageous people without whom he would probably not be alive. I know that I would not have survived without help from many people. Many put themselves in danger and at least one person died for me. It’s time for me to remember them, and to thank them … all the good people who helped me through those terrifying times when life was hard, and survival often only a matter of chance. While in Christmas Island Detention Centre, Para became penfriends with Alison Corke, a member of the Apollo Bay branch of Rural Australians for Refugees, in Victoria. On his release from detention in 2011, Para moved in with the Corke family. “From our first letters, exchanged while Para was in detention and trying to improve his English, I knew he was an exceptional young man, with an astonishing tale to tell. I am proud to be helping him share his story and to find and thank those people who helped him survive, often against massive odds … Time and again, Para and I agreed that it is the little things that matter most — those small, often unremembered acts of kindness that can change someone’s world. We all have the power to do something; only we can choose whether to use that power for the good."

The teamwork troubleshooter we all need! Turn your team into a cohesive unit. Why do some team members not get along? What is the best way to get new teams and ad-hoc teams to maximize their performance in the least amount of time? How can meetings be designed to achieve useful outcomes? Teams are the source of problem-solving and innovation that today’s organizations need to survive and thrive in an increasingly complex and challenging marketplace. Teamwork is hard because there is no magic formula or step-by-step procedure to ensure results. Think of a programmer asked to develop new features for a cell phone: they write new code, test the code, troubleshoot problems encountered, revise the code, and repeat the testing process until the new features work without problems. Similarly, a team leader asked to deliver specified outcomes develops a plan, runs team meetings, troubleshoots problems encountered, revises the plan, and repeats until the team outcomes are achieved. The difference is that a programmer has tools to help streamline troubleshooting, while team leaders do not—until now. Valerie Patrick applies a troubleshooting mindset that includes: Proven tactics for team members and leaders to address leadership problems Guidelines for recruiting and changing teams for optimum performance Techniques to identify and address aspects of team climate that are limiting the productivity of one or more team members Examples of effective ways to operate teams and of meeting designs that produce transformative outcomes

Life is full of challenges. Some of the challenges we face in life are so painful that we invariably ask, Why is this happening to me? The Bible promises a day in the future when there will be no more pain and no more sorrow when the Lord establishes a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1-4). But until then, bad things will continue to happen. But we are not helpless. The Bible provides answers to suffering that will help us deal with the painful challenges we face. By following Biblical prescriptions we can grow spiritually and emotionally. Lifes difficulties will no longer be viewed as evils, but as challenges to be overcome with victory; lifes adversities can be made to work for us rather than against us.

Why Good People Do Bad Things sheds new light on the ethical dilemmas of modern life. It shows how people of good will who are generally thoughtful, caring, and reasonably well balanced can unwittingly contribute to the evils present in our social systems.In exposing these situations, this book also offers the hope that these same "good people" can take a fresh look at the world around them. In doing so, they can then see the potential of our world as well as its defects, and determine to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

In today’s turbulent technological environment, it’s becoming increasingly crucial for companies to know about the principle of least privilege. These organizations often have the best security software money can buy, with equally developed policies with which to execute them, but they fail to take into account the weakest link in their implementation: human nature. Despite all other efforts, people can sway from what they should be doing. Preventing Good People from doing Bad Things drives that concept home to business executives, auditors, and IT professionals alike. Instead of going through the step-by-step process of implementation, the book points out the implications of allowing users to run with unlimited administrator rights, discusses the technology and supplementation of Microsoft’s Group Policy, and dives into the different environments least privilege affects, such as Unix and Linux servers, and databases. Readers will learn ways to protect virtual environments, how to secure multi-tenancy for the cloud, information about least privilege for applications, and how compliance enters the picture. The book also discusses the cost advantages of preventing good people from doing bad things. Each of the chapters emphasizes the need auditors, business executives, and IT professionals all have for least privilege, and discuss in detail the tensions and solutions it takes to implement this principle. Each chapter includes data from technology analysts including Forrester, Gartner, IDC, and Burton, along with analyst and industry expert quotations.

This book takes the view that Christian truth is the basis for all answers to social issues and that there are not two opposing but equal answers within Christian truth that are equally valid and equally acceptable to God. Any so called truth or "right" that circumvents or undercuts the required sacrifices, disciplines and self denial demanded by God in any given social or moral issue ceases to be truth, ceases to be right the moment it becomes a force unto itself, outside of or independent of the Scripturally required obedience. Human history has shown over the millennia that when the letter and spirit of God's laws are not obeyed, the truth is abused, nations become confused and people are used. Many of our political and social issues are rooted in our misplaced belief that tolerance, inclusion, equal respect for unequal truth and live and let live is the way to greater peace and prosperity. They are all wrong. Each individual, government and nation is judged by their response to Christ. The Christian nation or one which ascribes to being one, is tasked to set the Christian standard as every nation's point of reference. It is the Christian's duty to show that the valid rule of God's law, the letter of God's law and the spirit of God's law are superior to any other alternative standard. The biggest obstacle to Christianity today is the undisciplined, misinformed and unfaithful lifestyles of professing Christians. The Church has become so indoctrinated in its aversion to any form of discrimination that it has placed a higher priority on keeping the peace by compromising than by keeping the truth by discriminating. By accepting a false peace and rejecting a hard truth that resists compromise, it begets neither peace nor truth.
