Political/Science/History – The Fix Is In

the-fix-is-inThe Fix Is In
The Deutsche Bank Building Fire Conspiracy
J. A. Graffagnino
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Published: August 2016
ISBN: 978-1524618841
ASIN: B01KOQUUZY
Pages: 338
Genre: Non-Fiction, Political, Science, History

Finally, the truth is revealed about Manhattan’s Deutsche Bank building fire. The devastating fire at 130 Liberty Street in the heart of Manhattan’s financial center – a short distance from what was the World Trade Center – was one of the worst fires in New York City’s history. Two firefighters were killed, and 105 were injured. One of the firefighters killed during the horrific fire was author Graffagnino’s son, Joey.

Graffagnino refused to believe what high-level government decision makers were telling the public – that the fire was an accident.

After eight years of relentless research in pursuit of the truth – combing through public records and interviewing firefighters on the scene, government officials, informed observers, whistleblowers and eyewitnesses – Graffagnino uncovered the truth. The horrific seven-alarm Deutsche Bank building fire was no accident. And all efforts to quell the raging inferno were in vain.

The Fix Is In is not based upon a conspiracy theory, opinion or undocumented rumors, but confirmed facts. Graffagnino places blame where it belongs and exposes the people who benefitted from the catastrophe.

Find out for yourself. Discover the disturbing truth about a calculated and complex conspiracy involving top governmental agencies, corporate leaders and organized crime figures.

“The Deutsche Bank fire was preventable,” said FDNY Captain Simon Ressner. “Preventive measures were deliberately sidestepped in the name of ambition and in the name of money.”

Environment – Climate Change, Land Use and Monetary Policy: The New Trifecta

Climate Change, Land Use and Monetary PolicyClimate Change, Land Use and Monetary Policy: The New Trifecta
By Geraldine Perry
Publisher: Wasteland Press
ISBN: 978-1600479274
ASIN: B00I9HKILC
Pages: 290
Genre: Non-Fiction, Environment

Climate Change, Land Use and Monetary Policy: The New Trifecta by Geraldine Perry argues that it is land use, not fossil fuel burning per se, which drives that portion of climate change attributable to human activity, and it is, in turn, monetary policy that has driven land use since the days of ancient Mesopotamia. We must come to terms with the fact that our current, single-minded fixation on CO2 reduction will only keep us on the present trajectory of planetary destruction – even as it makes boatloads of money for all manner of “stock-jobbers” and industry insiders who have managed to turn CO2 into a trade-able commodity. All of this is, in large part, due to our own oversimplification and misunderstanding of the scientific and monetary questions. Yet there are solutions if we only choose to look. The first portion of the book focuses on the relationship between climate change and land use, particularly in the agriculture and energy arenas. You’ll be introduced to a unique form of agriculture, often referred to as regenerative or perennial agriculture, through which it is possible to dramatically reduce CO2 and associated soil and water pollution. At the same time, this type of agriculture helps to rebuild our dangerously depleted agricultural soils. Surprisingly, this form of agriculture can also dramatically reduce the amount of land devoted to food production, and provide us with the astonishing ability to feed the world’s billions 20 or 30 times over with high quality, nutritious foods. “Land-friendly” energy alternatives are also touched upon, which bear little resemblance to today’s land-hungry “clean” or “green” energy alternatives, and yet hold amazing promise for a truly “green” future. The later portion of the book explores the relationship between land use and monetary policy which the modern world inherited from ancient Mesopotamia. It is the extractive nature of this monetary system that encourages the high-risk gambling characteristic of trifecta bets that destroys the land and deprives the people of the fruits of their labor. Land use is the problem and “land-friendly” monetary reform is the solution.

Praise for Brand Identity Breakthrough:

Brand Identity Breakthrough by Gregory V. Diehl offers a no-nonsense approach to business by getting down to the bare bones of the business analysis, not only looking at what makes a business tick, but also examining what drives that business and whether it will be successful. However, Brand Identity Breakthrough is no walk in the park with rose-colored spectacles firmly in place – it identifies the many pitfalls facing entrepreneurs today and then offers anecdotes where others have turned potential problems into a positive solution.”
Marta Tandori for Readers’ Favorite

“As you read Brand Identity Breakthrough, you’ll feel like you are talking with a master who knows the troubling questions about brand marketing that business owners struggle with. Diehl exposes readers to the winning principles of brand marketing and warns them about the many pitfalls that have often undermined the success of powerful products. This book is a great companion for businesses of every size and nature.”
Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite

“I very much enjoyed Brand Identity. Author Gregory V. Diehl has done a fantastic job in giving his target audience an easy to use primer on how to achieve exactly what they want from their business. Any reader who is trying to create or sell a product that will get noticed in the marketplace should absolutely read this book.”
Tracy Slowiak for Readers’ Favorite

“Many small business owners just don’t understand the critical importance of crafting their own ‘story.’ Most companies offer a product or service that could be obtained elsewhere, and the reason a prospect will choose you often comes down to how you tell your story. Read Gregory Diehl’s Brand Identity Breakthrough and you will have a more compelling and successful story.”
Pete Sisco, ResilientPersonalFreedom.me

“Quite often, in the rush toward newer methods of developing a brand, the essence of making it truly stand out gets left behind. Brand Identity Breakthrough provides business owners a comprehensive guide which can give your business the tools it needs. Diehl has total mastery over this subtle craft, and it really shows in his writing here.”
Purushothaman Rajagopal, InfinityMedia.in

“After reading this book I was actually shocked; I had been doing so many of the “Do Nots”! I consider this book MANDATORY reading for all creators, regardless of what phase you may be in. And especially for the Tim Ferris 4HWW crowd, like myself, this book is a wake-up call, as well as a hyper-important tool in your toolbox.”
Eric Z, Zbooks.co

“If you want your business to stand out from the crowd and have a solid vision for success, you need an avatar and a story. Brand Identity Breakthrough shares relatable stories about how to choose your customers while your competitors’ leave that important decision to their clients. You can choose better clients and more control of your life.”
Andrew Henderson, Nomad Capitalist

“Brand Identity Breakthrough is beautifully logical in its organization, introducing every new topic at just the right point to make sense in the context of what has already been explained. That’s a remarkable achievement! As soon as I got past the first few pages, I realized that this book is, indeed, a work of quality with something original and truly valuable to say.”
Tim Coulter, Getting Around Turkey

“From the moment I started this book, there was value bomb after value bomb after value bomb. I was blown away by the detailed knowledge that I picked out from Brand Identity Breakthrough. Highly recommended read!”
Chris P. Reynolds, The Entrepreneur House & The One Effect

“This book is branding on steroids. It’s a combination of marketing, business, financing and entrepreneurship. It’s extremely motivating, inspiring and educational. I want to use the material to train my agents and I will ask them to buy copies as well!”
Asaf Halperin, Experior Financial Group
