Dirty Thirty By: Billie Proffitt With a plethora of experiences by her late twenties, Billie Proffitt still felt overwhelmed by the pressure of deciding what she wanted. Raised that well-being is more valuable than the “should’s” of society, she examined not only the roads less traveled, but also the ones that nobody else saw. Her willingness to forge on even as these were littered with pitfalls, paint these non-chronological stories which make up the thirty most important lessons she learned by thirty. Believing as author Natalie Babbitt suggested, that it isn’t death to be feared, “but rather the unlived life,” this gifted storyteller marks the up’s, down’s, backward and eventual steps forward in life that span the range of human emotions. Billie is a bright, quirky, honest young woman who captures the beauty of the human condition with passion and humor - insight and determination. Dirty Thirty doesn’t evoke wistful regret for life’s lost opportunities, but instead inspires reaching toward the great days ahead that yet have to be lived.

Envision living in mud, eating food packed in 1941, witnessing hostilities from your enemies and among your friends. ‘The Dirty Thirty’ explains life as it was as a Gun-Bunny, a trucker, a thief and a soldier in the jungles and towns of South Vietnam Live as a draftee lived among the diversity of an army of draftees. The odd and endearing characters of ‘The Dirty Thirty’ and the strict ‘military minds’ of the Lifers, will give you a glimpse of the real Vietnam experience. Jolt at the realization that the NVA was not an ‘Evil Empire’, but a military force with a ‘cause’ and a heartfelt dedication among its soldiers. Be sad at the plights of individual U.S. soldiers at the mercy of the ‘Military Machine’. Be proud of the sacrifices made by the men and women of both sides during the 10,000 Day War. ‘The Dirty Thirty’ gives a day to day account of what life was really like on the fire bases in the jungles and hills of Vietnam and Cambodia in 1969-1970.

|Author||: Leonard Levitt|
For years, the police commissioner and the mayor of New York City have duked it out for publicity, credit, and power. Some have translated their stardom into success after leaving office, while others have been hung out to dry. In the battle for control of the country's most powerful police force, these high-status government officials have often chosen political expediency over public honesty. The result is a legacy of systemic corruption and cover-ups that is nothing less than shocking. Respected journalist Leonard Levitt has covered the NYPD for New York Newsday, and the New York Post among other papers. His columns have made him persona non grata in police headquarters. In NYPD Confidential, he reveals everything he's discovered throughout his decades-long career. With amazing details of backroom deals and larger-than-life powerbrokers, Levitt lays bare the backstabbing, power-grabs, and chaotic internal investigations that have run the NYPD's reputation into the ground in the past—and the forces conspiring to do so once again.

When a beautiful young woman moves in next door and offers to give me a hand, I jump at the chance to hire her as a nanny. Jessa is amazing with my daughter. She’s also patient, kind, and way too pretty. The number one rule of hiring a nanny? Don’t bed the nanny. It’s a rule I intend to keep. But as the days pass, I begin to realize how much my life is missing. Companionship. Romance. Intimacy. When I discover my heart has space for one more female, it’s a lost cause, another curveball.

This is a perspective on the chemical world we live in and why I believe all of us should be concerned for our lives, the lives of our families, friends and the animals that share our lives. It is not intended to scare you, although it might. It is really to draw attention to what our lives have become and the chemicals, companies and products that rule it. Our skin is our largest and most vulnerable organ. Love it and it will love you. Protect it and it will protect you. Abuse it and it will shorten your life.There have been more chemicals developed in the last twenty years than in all of mankind. Of the thousands of chemicals in use in the cosmetic, personal care and household products industry, less than 1% have been tested for safety. A few years ago I read that ~63% of American claim to have a skin disorder. Connection? Probably! There are no US Government regulations for skin care or household products.What I have come to believe is that more than 50% of skin disorders are misdiagnosed and are caused by chemicals in the products we use every day.
The Dirty Thirty is a friendly little workbook that will help you learn--and teach--some of the most useful (and most misused) words in our language. Words are like people--they can cause confusion, or bring pleasure. And sometimes the same words can do both. That's especially true of the tricky terms in The Dirty Thirty. We see them misused again and again, even by intelligent people who write and speak well. These words usually come in pairs (like affect-effect, who-whom, and stationery-stationary). They often look and sound a lot alike (capitol-capital), and they may be related in meaning (emigrate-immigrate). So it's no surprise that even professionals sometimes have trouble keeping them straight. This book will show you how. It focuses on words that we most need to know about--the ones that come up fairly often in speech and writing, and that competent users of our language are expected to know. You'll get clear explanations of the differences, and do short practice exercises to help you confirm that you understand and can use the words. And the format of The Dirty Thirty, with its clear explanation and short exercises, makes it an excellent teaching tool.

To those of us in the modern world, ancient Greece has either a glorious or inglorious past. Some see it as the birthplace of dearly held ideas and ideals, such as democracy, individuality, science, and the rule of reason. Others bristle at the ancient Greeks as propagators of less charitable ideals, such as patriarchy, misogyny, and eurocentrism. In The Complete Idiot s Guide to Ancient Greece, readers are invited to meet the ancient Greeks on their own terms and to understand their legacy by entering their world.

Every ten years, the Texas legislature redistricts itself and the state’s congressional districts in an attempt to ensure equality in representation. With a richly textured cultural fabric, Texas often experiences redistricting battles that are heated enough to gain national attention. Collecting a variety of voices, including legislators themselves, in addition to lawyers, community organizers, political historians, and political scientists, Rotten Boroughs, Political Thickets, and Legislative Donnybrooks delivers a multidimensional picture of how redistricting works in Texas today, and how the process evolved. In addition to editor Gary Keith’s historical narrative, which emphasizes the aftermath of the Warren Court’s redistricting decisions, longtime litigators David Richards and J. D. Pauerstein describe the contentious lines drawn from the 1970s into the 2000s. Former state legislator and congressman Craig Washington provides an insider’s view, while redistricting attorney and grassroots organizer Jose Garza describes the repercussions for Mexican Americans in Texas. Balancing these essays with a quantitative perspective, political scientists Seth McKee and Mark McKenzie analyze the voting data for the 2000 decade to describe the outcomes of redistricting. The result is a timely tour that provides up-to-date context, particularly on the role of the Voting Rights Act in the twenty-first century. From local community engagement to the halls of the Capitol, this is the definitive portrait of redistricting and its repercussions for all Texans.
