Drawing on groundbreaking original research and startling statistics, The Triple Package uncovers the secret to their success. A superiority complex, insecurity, impulse control--these are the elements of the Triple Package, the rare and potent cultural constellation that drives disproportionate group success.Americans are taught that everyone is equal, that no group is superior to another. But remarkably, all of America&#39;s most successful groups believe (even if they don&#39;t say so aloud) that they&#39;re exceptional, chosen, superior in some way. Americans are taught that self-esteem--feeling good about yourself--is the key to a successful life. But in all of America&#39;s most successful groups, people tend to feel insecure, inadequate, that they have to prove themselves. But the Triple Package has a dark underside too. Each of its elements carries distinctive pathologies; when taken to an extreme, they can have truly toxic effects. Should people strive for the Triple Package? Should America? Ultimately, the authors conclude that the Triple Package is a ladder that should be climbed and then kicked away, drawing on its power but breaking free from its constraints&quot;--</p> </div> </div> OPEN LAB SATURDAYS (St. George Library Center) http://www.nypl.org/node/289052 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">St. George Library Center, TechConnect Lab</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2015-02-28T10:00:00-05:00">Saturday, February 28 - 10:00 am</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p>Are you having trouble with your email?

Yet, over 50% of the profiles do not include a Summary -- 2,000 characters of prime real estate located below the Headline.&nbsp; By skipping a Summary, you miss a great opportunity to differentiate yourself in a competitive job market.&nbsp;</p> <p>Register for this workshop to critique LinkedIn summaries which successfully incorporate specific techniques. For example, many start with a &quot;hook,&quot; or use humor, or share an anecdote.&nbsp; Others highlight accomplishments, or include a 3rd party testimonial.&nbsp; Learn how to write a &quot;call to action&quot; and where to include your list of Key Words.&nbsp;</p> <p>Participants are encouraged to bring their own Summary -- if they have one.</p> <p>Pre-registration is required.&nbsp; Interested participants must email Sherry Natkow at snatkow@job-prep.com to enroll and receive additional information.</p> &nbsp; <a href="http://www.nypl.org/events/calendar?location=65">Click here&nbsp;for more SIBL programs and classes!</a> </div> </div> Crochet/ Knitting Circle (115th Street Library) http://www.nypl.org/node/286178 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">115th Street Library</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2015-02-28T12:00:00-05:00">Saturday, February 28 - 12:00 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p>&nbsp;Bring your yarn, crochet hook or knitting needles.

Can we apply modern medical diagnoses to the ecstatics of past centuries?&nbsp; Finally, how has this history of mystical madness and hysteria led to the development of psychoanalysis and contemporary diagnoses of PTSD? These are some of the questions we will ask through the study of history, spiritual autobiographies, psychoanalytic case studies, art, and literature.</p> <p>Professor: &nbsp;Liane&nbsp;Carlson is a PhD Candidate&nbsp;in philosophy of religion at Columbia University.&nbsp; Her interests&nbsp;include 19th and 20th- century German and French philosophy, religion&nbsp;and literature, and the history of emotions.</p> <p>Saturdays: &nbsp;January 31, February 7, 14, 21, 28 &nbsp; &nbsp; 3 pm to 5 pm</p> <p>Readings will be handed out in class. &nbsp;Presented in the 3rd&nbsp;floor Mae West Community Room.</p> <p>Registration is now closed for this class - the class is full!&nbsp;</p> <p>All programs and classes are Free and Open to the Public.</p> <p style="text-align:center">[[{"fid":"278757","view_mode":"default","fields":{"format":"default","field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]":"","field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]":""},"type":"media","attributes":{"height":"444","width":"300","class":"media-element file-default"}}]]</p> </div> </div> Love Poetry: Writing Workshop (Kingsbridge Library) http://www.nypl.org/node/285473 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Kingsbridge Library</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2015-02-28T15:30:00-05:00">Saturday, February 28 - 3:30 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p>Join us for a 5-week poetry writing workshop with John Maney. During the first four sessions we&#39;ll look at each kind of love and how it appears in poetry/literature, examining what makes an effective love poem.

Participants will then get a chance to read what they&#39;ve written during the workshop, followed by positive comments.
