About The 48 Laws of Power

The New York Times Bestseller

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, The 48 Laws of Power is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.

In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.

Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

Answer: Air travel remains the safest mode of transport with just 0.07 deaths per one billion passenger miles. Flying on one of the world’s major airlines, on any single flight, you have a 1 in 4.7 million chance of being killed, according to PlaneCrashInfo.com, which tracked accident data from 1993 to 2012. Even if you’re flying on one of those with the worst safety records, your odds are still 1 in 2 million. “The most dangerous part of your airline flight is the trip to the airport,” said aviation and national security expert Carl Rochelle.

Answer: Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche, is a bestselling book by Bruce Feirstein, satirizing stereotypes of masculinity, and published in 1982. The book’s humor derives from the fears and confusion of contemporary 1980s men about how they ought to behave. Starting around 1982, the expression "Real me don’t eat quiche," became popular, and indeed, many men started refusing to eat quiche. Quiche had been popular during the 1970’s, but during the 1980’s quiche consumption plummeted. The book was on the New York Times Best Seller list for 55 weeks.

Fun Facts About Candy Corn

When the Goelitz Confectionery Company first produced candy corn, it was called “Chicken Feed.” The boxes were illustrated with a colorful rooster logo and a tag line that read: “Something worth crowing for.”

You don’t have to wait for Halloween to indulge in the mellow creme candies — celebrate National Candy Corn Day on October 30.

According to the National Confectioners Association, more than 35 million pounds (or 9 billion pieces) of candy corn will be produced this year.

Candy corn is one of the better-for-you candies of the Halloween season. It contains roughly 28 grams of sugar and only 140 calories per heaping handful — and it’s fat free!

In 1950, the price of candy corn was just 25 cents per pound.

In honor of its Goelitz roots, Jelly Belly developed a candy corn-flavor jelly bean.

Once the package is opened, store candy corn covered and away from heat and light at room temperature; it should last three to six months. If unopened, packaged candy corn will last about nine months.

Under what name was the beloved Halloween candy “candy corn” originally marketed?

· Halloween Corn

· Chicken Feed

· Ears of Candy

· Corny Delights

· Halloween Corn 17.2%

· Chicken Feed 47.0%

When it was originally marketed, candy corn appeared under the name “Chicken Feed.” But the little candy morsels proved so popular that the candy conglomerate, Goelitz Candy Company, negotiated to take over the mass production of what would become an American favorite. Once it won the right to produce the seasonal treat, the Goelitz Company changed the name to candy corn. Today’s recipe for the sweet seasonal treat is pretty much unchanged from its first original recipe. The main ingredients are honey, sugar and cornstarch. Source: Chiff.com

· Ears of Candy 13.4%

· Corny Delights 22.4%

What was the first name of the mother who, according to biographer Giorgio Vasari, sat for DaVinci’s 31 x 21 inch portrait?

Lisa

In 1550, Giorgio Vasari, the famous architect, painter, historian and writer, published the first edition of his monumental collection of biographies, The Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors and Architects. A Second Edition was published in 1568.

In the course of his monograph on Leonardo da Vinci, Vasari included a wonderfully descriptive paragraph about Mona Lisa and its first sentence has become one of the most vital and examined few words in all the canon of literature concerning Mona Lisa. It is loaded with information, and until the earlier part of the 20th Century was the standard source on this subject:

The Mona Lisa (/ˌmoʊnə ˈliːsə/; Italian: Monna Lisa [ˈmɔnna ˈliːza] or La Gioconda [la dʒoˈkonda], French: La Joconde [la ʒɔkɔ̃d]) is a half-length portrait of Lisa Gherardini by the Italian Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci, which has been described as “the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world”.

Q: In which African nation was the oldest skeleton of a human ancestor found?

The discovery of the skeletal remains of ‘Ardi’ in Ethiopia’s Afar desert region are ‘far more important’ than the previous discovery of humans’ oldest ancestor, dubbed ‘Lucy.’
Researchers discovered the fossils just 46 miles from where scientists found Lucy’s species in 1974. Studies of the surrounding volcanic ash reveal that Ardi lived approximately 4.4 million years ago. The fossils reveal a mixture of advanced characteristics as well as primitive traits.
