Whether in wartime or peace, tales of love, laughter and hardship from the girls in the Rowntrees factory in Yorkshire "On a warm Monday morning in 1932, just two days after leaving school, fourteen-year-old Madge was about to join her nine brothers and sisters at Rowntree's. The smell of chocolate was in the air but as she walked up the road, her footsteps slowed at the daunting thought of what lay aheadâ?¦" From the 1930s through to the 1980s, as Britain endured war, depression, hardship and strikes, the women at the Rowntree's factory in York kept the chocolates coming. This is the true story of The Sweethearts, the women who roasted the cocoa beans, piped the icing and packed the boxes that became gifts for lovers, snacks for workers and treats for children across the country.
More often than not, their working days provided welcome relief from bad husbands and bad housing, a community where they could find new confidence, friendship and when the supervisor wasn't looking, the occasional chocolate.

This classic of fencing literature is not just a how-to manual designed to teach the routine movements of the sport. Written by a master swordsman who competed professionally and whose credentials include teaching at Rome's Italian Fencing Masters' School and Vienna's Austro-Hungarian Central Fencing School, as well as private instruction in Paris, the book divulges the reasons behind every aspect of positioning, invitation, engagement, thrusting, parrying, counterparrying, tempo, feints, and ripostes. Inherent in every word is the author's great love of the sport and his appreciation for the artistry of the foil. In the last section of this book, first published in English in 1933, Barbasetti presents a short history of fencing--from the heroic times of Homer to the Middle Ages--and a useful glossary of fencing terms in English, Italian, French, and German. Clear b&w line drawings illustrate correct stances and actions while several plates capture the drama of the sport as depicted by other artists.
Skills and experience might land you a leadership position, but they don't make you a true leader. Leadership comes from inside--and the greatest leaders first question themselves before they tackle the world around them.
To aid in this critical interrogation, The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership explores ideas from Aristotle, Heraclitus, Sophocles, Hesiod, and other great thinkers, including: * Know thyself * Do not waste energy on things you cannot change * Nurture community * Always embrace the truth * Let competition reveal talent * Live life by a higher code * Understand that character is destiny Then it shows you how to take each idea--along with what you've learned about yourself--and apply it to the challenges of the modern workplace. As Aristotle tutored Alexander the Great, you too will learn what it takes to conquer all.
