Senator Tim Scott knows adversity. As the son of a single mother from North Charleston, South Carolina, he struggled to get through school and had his dreams of a college football career shattered by a car wreck. But thanks to his mother and a few mentors along the way, he learned that "failure isn't failure unless you quit." He also learned that it's hard work and perseverance, not a government handout, that will get you ahead in life. Today, Senator Scott is the only black Republican in the Senate, and he believes that investment and commerce are the best ways to rebuild our most impoverished communities. This is the idea behind his signature piece of legislation, the "opportunity zones" program, which President Trump has strongly endorsed. The program provides tax incentives for businesses that invest in low-income urban areas, seeking to replace things like welfare and government assistance. In Opportunity Knocks, Senator Scott will tell his life story with a focus on adversity and opportunity. He will teach readers about the principles of hard work and hope while addressing the dangers of veering too far toward socialist policies. The book will also not shy away from discussions of racism and racial inequality in the United States, and will recount some of Senator Scott's own brushes with racism as well as the many discussions he's had with people who want to help, including President Trump.

For two decades, while transforming Marriott Hotels’ international operations, Edwin D. Fuller has demonstrated his leadership ability in dozens of countries around the world. Now he has distilled the lessons of that experience into a series of brief, practical guides to effective leadership. In this one, he explains how, by preparing in advance and by accepting the risks of decision making, you can make the most of calamity. No one gets out of this world alive, as the saying goes, and no business can expect an endless string of good news and rising revenues. Trouble will inevitably strike in one form or another. Effective leaders don’t go looking for trouble, but how they respond when it arrives is a good gauge of their skills. A capable leader doesn’t need to be reminded to empathize with those who suffer injuries or damage of any kind during a crisis. Nor does he or she back away from the responsibility to bring order out of chaos for the good of the organization. But good leaders also see something more. They understand that crises beget opportunities to gain insights, build customer loyalty, and bolster organizational strength.
When his old girlfriend moves back to town, Tyler worries that dating her again will interfere with his friendships, especially with the beautiful Hannah, and draw him away from God.
We evaluate the effects of academic achievement awards for first and second-year college students on a Canadian commuter campus. The award scheme offered linear cash incentives for course grades above 70. Awards were paid every term. Program participants also had access to peer advising by upperclassmen. Program engagement appears to have been high but overall treatment effects were small. The intervention increased the number of courses graded above 70 and points earned above 70 for second-year students, but there was no significant effect on overall GPA. Results are somewhat stronger for a subsample that correctly described the program rules. We argue that these results fit in with an emerging picture of mostly modest effects for cash award programs of this type at the post-secondary level.
