Choosing a college major is one of the most important decisions students ever make, yet there is often confusion about picking the right discipline. Studies show that nearly two-thirds of all college freshman have not chosen a major, and nearly 60 percent of undergraduates change their major at least once resulting in lost time, money and productivity. To minimize the uncertainty in selecting the right major, Peterson's has partnered with industry leader, CPP the makers of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. The MBTI was developed in the 1940s to make Carl Jung's theory of personality type understandable and useful in everyday life. This book will include access to a personality assessment to determine likes/dislikes and strengths/weaknesses to aid them in making sound decisions. The MBTI assessment, now priced at $9.95, coupled with the descriptions of more than 800 college majors, including course requirements, related majors, and related careers, will provide students an invaluable resource for making The Major Decision.

In "Why Not Have It All", we are shown how best to navigate the turbulent waters of modern life. As a woman, this can be both complex and demanding, for there has been a sea change in societal mores which has, in many instances, left us in newly uncharted waters. Bonita Shelby is a woman who has, with God’s help, managed to find her way and wants to act as a beacon to others—keeping us off the rocks that might otherwise capsize us. The shifting demands of love, marriage, children, education, and employment need not overwhelm us. Indeed, when balanced they can form the very pillars of a life of fulfilment through God’s favor and grace. "Why Not Have It All" presents a wealth of practical advice, for women(of all ages) that is backed up by scripture, and set against a number of compelling biographical glimpses into the life of Bonita herself. Personal and powerful, it is a work that is sure to inspire and instruct likeminded readers.
This book explores the essence of the middle-income trap based on two major perspectives, namely “economic transformation” and “social transformation”. China has experienced high-speed economic growth for nearly 40 years since the adoption of the Reform and Opening policies. However, China’s economic growth has been slowing down significantly in recent years. Has China tumbled into the middle-income trap? This book reveals the essence of the middle-income trap is that a country's economic growth is facing a "double squeeze" in the middle-income stage, while the social structure and system are unsuitable for the new social development stage, which leads to economic stagnation or recession, and the aggravation of social contradictions, that is, the double predicament of economic transformation and social transformation. This judgment is of great value for understanding the problems encountered in the current development of China.
This book provides a unique examination of how a middle power uses international organisations to achieve greater global influence. The authors focus on the OECD, ‘the rich man’s club’ of most of the world’s wealthiest nations. It demonstrates how the decision by Australia to apply for membership was a long drawn out process, delayed by political factors. Eventually agreement was reached with assurances that membership would provide access to valuable and timely policy-related information, especially in relation to international trade and finance. In addition, membership would potentially increase influence by providing greater access to its powerful member states at an earlier stage in their policy discussions and agreements.
The Big Decision Mrs. Grace Johnson is a new sixth grade health teacher who is about to lead her first sex education class. While the students are antsy and ready to see just what the video of a lifetime is all about, she is reminded of her own teenage years and realizes she is now saying to them words she heard as a child. She decides to share from her own experience just how the decision of whether or not to be sexually active before marriage affected her life and those around her. As she tells her class about a time in her familys life when things were very chaotic, distressing, and disappointing, she remembers how hard it was to make what she calls The Big Decision. She also remembers just how her friends in her past, both saved and unsaved, were such an influence in the choices she made. She is mindful to encourage the young ladies to make the right choice for it is one you cant undo. With the HIV and Aids epidemic being one that continues to plague all of our communities, this book is meant to send a message that one choice can change your life for the better or for the worse. For adults and even more importantly young people, who battle promiscuity this story will make all aware of the game the Enemy is playing with their minds in order to steal, kill, and destroy their lives. The choice is up to each individual to hear this message. Have you ever wondered to yourself, what does Love really look like? Are you someone who is torn between taking a stand to wait but being pulled by the loud voice of society that says, No one really waits anymore. Maybe it is time that you set the standard. It is my goal to persuade you to think twice when you are faced with making The Big Decision; remember -- it could change your life forever.
