When I entered the aviation industry many years ago. No one sat me down and explained what I was getting myself into from a real world perspective. There was one person I knew was in the industry and he worked nights and was very difficult to connect with. In short, I was clueless. I made grave mistakes and sometimes took real, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, for granted. I also missed some opportunities because I was not prepared. After you graduate aviation school, you are going to want to have a full picture of your future. If you are currently in the industry and have been for about 5 years, you will still need this information to successfully fine-tune your career. This book will help prepare you for a successful aviation maintenance career. It gives a good “insider's” perspective of the aviation maintenance industry that most would have to work in the industry to get. It sums up what “good” mechanics should know about their profession. It will help you avoid the mistakes that I made thereby improve your chances of success.Do you want to know more about contracting? Do you know what contracting is?

Doctors increasingly prescribe "cholesterol lowering" drugs that patients will take every day for the rest of their lives. But a daily pill only addresses a small part of the cholesterol problem. In this book, Dr. Richard Furman shows you how to understand what your cholesterol numbers mean, how best to change levels of both the "lethal" LDL cholesterol and the "hero" HDL cholesterol, and how to adjust your lifestyle in order to stay off of expensive medications that don't address the whole problem (and often have negative health-impacting side effects). Ready to take charge of your cholesterol?

The Buzzing Bee Once, we left the patio door open, a bee flew in. It hit the window repeatedly trying to get out. We could hear it buzzing from the top to the bottom of the window. It saw the beauty outside and worked very hard trying to get out, but we knew that its effort was futile! If it were a fly, we would have used the swatter and ended its misery. However, since it is a beneficial insect, we opened the door and chased it out. All of a sudden, four important lessons came to mind: 1. Hard work alone may not be able to solve our problem. 2. Often the solutions come from doing it another way-thinking outside the box. 3. Sometimes the Almighty sees us in our predicament and shows us a way out. 4. I believe that it is our mission in life also to show some struggling people the lessons we learned and the opportunities we saw and show them a way out. Two roads diverge in the woods, and I took the one less traveled, and that has made all the difference.-Robert Frost, 1920 Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.-Mother Teresa (19101997) Any fool can count the seeds in an apple, Only God can count the apples from one seed!-Dr. Robert H.
