CHINA AND THE UNITED STATES ARE HEADING TOWARD A WAR NEITHER WANTS. The reason is Thucydides’s Trap, a deadly pattern of structural stress that results when a rising power challenges a ruling one. This phenomenon is as old as history itself. About the Peloponnesian War that devastated ancient Greece, the historian Thucydides explained: “It was the rise of Athens and the fear that this instilled in Sparta that made war inevitable.” Over the past 500 years, these conditions have occurred sixteen times. War broke out in twelve of them. Today, as an unstoppable China approaches an immovable America and both Xi Jinping and Donald Trump promise to make their countries “great again,” the seventeenth case looks grim. Unless China is willing to scale back its ambitions or Washington can accept becoming number two in the Pacific, a trade conflict, cyberattack, or accident at sea could soon escalate into all-out war.

In Destined for War, the eminent Harvard scholar Graham Allison explains why Thucydides’s Trap is the best lens for understanding U.S.-China relations in the twenty-first century. Through uncanny historical parallels and war scenarios, he shows how close we are to the unthinkable. Yet, stressing that war is not inevitable, Allison also reveals how clashing powers have kept the peace in the past — and what painful steps the United States and China must take to avoid disaster today.

Inn: Half for haves, half for have-nots - Port Townsend Leader

Gary Keister, the owner of the former Inn at Port Hadlock, now named (again) the Old Alcohol Plant, contemplates the property during a community open house April 30. Half of the property is to be used as a market-rate inn. the other half has been leased to a nonprofit organization that is using it to house people who need transitional housing, before they find permanent shelter. Photo by Allison Arthur. Gary Keister, the owner of the former Inn at Port Hadlock, now named (again) the Old Alcohol Plant, contemplates the property during a community open house April 30. Half of the property is to be used as a market-rate inn. the other half has been leased to a nonprofit organization that is using it to house people who need transitional housing, before they find permanent shelter. Photo by Allison Arthur. Gary Keister greeted Catalina Osa as if he knew her Saturday at an open house for the new Old Alcohol Plant in Port Hadlock. The two had met briefly once before – right after Osa moved into a room on the east side of the former Inn at Port Hadlock, now called the Old Alcohol Plant, which Keister owns. Half of the property, on the west side, is set to reopen in June as a market-rate inn under a new-old name. Although it was most recently named Inn at Port Hadlock, many people still refer to it by the hotel business name of Old Alcohol Plant, which was a throwback to its history. The other half of the property, on the east side, where Osa now lives, is being run by a nonprofit, Bayside Housing and Services. Bayside is using 10 rooms for transitional housing for low-income seniors, veterans and others who are in need of transitional housing. Osa had been living in Serenity House of Clallam County in Port Angeles, but she could not stay there any longer and was referred to Bayside. I have my own room,” Osa said as she held a firm grip on her walker and chatted with Keister. The need for housing in Jefferson County is why Keister says the purchase of the inn and its remodeling and dual purpose is all worthwhile. The hotel part of the property is designed to help support the nonprofit half, although they are being run separately and independently. As of Saturday, there are three women and one man in Bayside's portion and one woman who was doing work at the inn in exchange for housing. Keister won't say how much money he and investors have put into the inn since buying it in December of 2014 for $852,000 after a bank foreclosed on the previous owners. Source:

  • From Business Cards to Business Relationships

    John Wiley & Sons. 2012. ISBN: 9781118364185,111836418X. 272 pages.

    Want to supercharge your life? Effective networking is the answer and this book will teach you how. Professionals of all stripes and ages are told to ′get out there′ and network so they can build their careers, grow their businesses and elevate their influence in the community, but they are rarely taught the skills to do that. Most people are lost, intimidated by the idea of presenting their own personal brand, and frustrated when it comes to networking. Despite long hours at events and attempts to make the right connections, they aren t seeing their desired results. From Business Cards to Business Relationships is a start–to–finish guide that demystifies the networking process and teaches readers how to truly benefit from getting connected. Allison Graham provides an easy to follow road map that is adaptable to your personality, circumstances and growth goals. You will learn how to strategically decide where to go, what to do when you get there and what to do afterwards to turn those casual business card contacts into meaningful relationships. Allison′s approach is based on the Four Pillars of Profitable Networking: Perspective, Personal Brand, Procedures, and a Strategic Plan. This is a prescriptive, practical system based on the author′s real–life experience of going from unconnected to connected in a short period of time. No cheesy gimmicks or high–pressure nonsense, just the skills and knowledge that will create success for anyone willing to do the work and follow this advice. Regardless of your past experience or current level of connectivity, your industry or profession, whether you′re an entrepreneur or climbing the corporate ladder: you can accomplish whatever you want by meeting and connecting with the right people. From Business Cards to Business Relationships gives you the tools you need to cement a positive personal brand and build your own profitable network. Praise for From Business Cards to Business Relationships "Allison Graham can help you turn an introduction into a business, a dinner into a relationship, and an average practice into world class. I′ve long preached that we′re in a relationship business, and this book provides the handshakes, codes, actions, and routes to master those relationships." Alan Weiss, PhD, Author of Million Dollar Consulting and The Consulting Bible "At last a networking book that actually makes sense! Allison Graham′s four pillars of networking are as simple as they are powerful. If you are willing to follow her lead with consistent and persistent effort, you will make your mark and expand your horizons both personally and professionally." Lou Heckler, Humorous Business Keynote Speaker and Speech Coach "This book is an excellent and much–needed resource to share with the business community." PJ Hartson, Business Editor, Sun Media
