Charlie Richards wakes up to a gloomy day in New York. He rolls out of bed and stumbles to the shower. The Marketing Associate for Apple’s New York headquarters starts his day just like every other.

“ Honey,” his wife Jennifer calls from the kitchen “some men stopped by looking for you yesterday, they said they worked with you but I didn’t recognize any of them.”

“ Did they leave anything for me?” Charlie asked.

“ No they said they’d stop by another time.” She said.

Not thinking twice about it Charlie said his goodbyes and went on to his boring day at work. But today would be anything but boring.

Charlie arrives at his work, punches into his computer terminal, and goes through his morning routine. He gets his breakfast and coffee and heads back to his desk to start his day. While working on a new pitch for his boss he gets a phone call.

“ Charlie.” says a raspy voice on the other end.

“ Who is this?” asks Charlie quizzically.

“ That isn’t important,” says the man “ what is important is we have your wife.”

“ This fight isn’t with her,” says Charlie “ what you want is with me let her go and take me.”

“ We can’t do that Charlie, now I will be contacting you later with some instructions that you must do to keep her alive.”

The phone call ends the long drawn out beep that happens when the line is dead rings in Charlie’s ear. He knows what he has to do. He has to get her back safely.

Charlie rushes home, he just up and walked out of his job and runs 5 blocks to his apartment in Manhattan. What no one knows about is that Charlie has a dark past, he used to be an assassin for the mob. He used to live in Chicago, he was a “hit man” as they call it. He gave up the life one day when he was sent to take out the Mayor of Chicago. Ever since then he’s…...

Song of Swords

...belly of the giant that m y blade impales. Farslayer howls across the world For thy heart, for thy heart, who hast wronged me! Vengeance is his who casts the blade Yet he will in the end no triumph see. Whose flesh the Sword of Mercy hurts has drawn no breath; Whose soul it heals has wandered in the night, Has paid the summing of all debts in death Has turned to see returning light. The Mindsword spun in the dawn's gray light And men and demons knelt down before. The Mindsword flashed in the midday bright Gods joined the dance, and the march to war. It spun in the twilight dim as well And gods and men marched off to hell. I shatter Swords and splinte r spears; None stands to Shieldbreaker. My point's the fount of orphans' tears My edge the widowmaker. The Sword of Stealth is given to One lonely and despised. Sightblinde r's gifts: his e yes are keen His nature is disguised. The Tyrant's Blade no blood hath spilled But doth the spirit carve Soulcutter hath no body killed But many left to starve. The Sword of Siege struck a hammer's blow With a crash, and a smash, and a tumbled wall. Stonecutter laid a castle low With a groan, and a roar, and a tower's fall. Long roads the Sword of Fury makes Hard walls it builds around the soft The fighter who Towns aver takes Can bid farewell to home and croft. Who holds Wayfinde r finds good roads Its master's step is brisk. The Sword of Wisdom lightens loads But adds unto their risk. ...

The Rain Bow

...had difficulty finding replacements he liked. On keyboards, after auditioning several high profile artists, including Vanilla Fudge's Mark Stein, Procol Harum's Matthew Fisher and ex-Curved Air and Roxy Music man Eddie Jobson, Blackmore finally selected Canadian David Stone, from the little-known band Symphonic Slam. For a bass player, Blackmore originally chose Mark Clarke, formerly of Jon Hiseman's Colosseum, Uriah Heep and Tempest, but once in the studio for the next album, Long Live Rock 'n' Roll, Blackmore disliked Clarke's fingerstyle method of playing so much that he fired Clarke on the spot and played bass himself on all but four songs: the album's title track, "Gates of Babylon", "Kill the King", and "Sensitive to Light". Former Widowmaker bassist, Australian Bob Daisley was hired to record these tracks, completing the band's next line-up. After the release and extensive world tour in 1977–78, Blackmore decided that he wanted to take the band in a new commercial direction away from the "sword and sorcery" theme.[12] Dio did not agree with this change and left Rainbow. [edit]Commercial success Graham Bonnet in 2008. Blackmore attempted to replace Dio with Ian Gillan, but Gillan turned him down. After a series of auditions, former vocalist/guitarist of The Marbles, Graham Bonnet was recruited instead. Powell stayed, but Daisley and Stone were both fired, the latter being replaced by keyboardist Don Airey. At first the band auditioned bass players, but at Cozy......

...established international branches. Until then, even the biggest American bank had been purely domestic. Each had an international vice president whose job it was to provide routine services to the bank’s domestic clients, such as letters of credit or buying foreign currency. Everything else that wasn’t domestic was referred to correspondence banks abroad. Suddenly, almost overnight, the New York banks—but also the big banks in Chicago and San Francisco—developed truly international business and pushed it aggressively. And then the traditional international vice president’s job became a widow maker. When asked about the phenomenon, one of New York’s top financial lawyers was asked for an explanation. He said in an interview, “You are talking of widowmakers. There’s only one thing to do: abolish the job and restructure.” The widow-maker phenomenon has occurred in many organizations—for example, in a university that within ten years moved from being primarily an undergraduate teaching institution to being a major research university. That killed off two excellent people who took on the presidency as it had been structured the old How to Make People Decisions 315 way, and any number of deans—again, these positions could be filled successfully only after the university had restructured itself thoroughly. BUILD FEEDBACK CONTROL INTO PEOPLE DECISIONS There is no area in a manager’s work and job in which feedback control is more important and more productive. There is......
