Until the helicopter crash, Jill Smith never knew fear. A homicide detective in the leftist enclave of Berkeley, California, she has faced down her share of thugs, thieves, and killers, but since surviving the downed helicopter, her nerves have been shot. Unwilling to submit to her anxiety, she goes back to work. The chef and owner of Paradise, an upscale restaurant in Berkeley´s so-called ´´Gourmet Ghetto,´´ is found on the floor of his own kitchen, poisoned by the soup he was seasoning. On his way to the top of the foodie pyramid, the chef made enemies of his dishwasher, his neighbors, and Earth Man, a hippie holdout who lives on kitchen scraps. To pinpoint the killer, Jill will have to remember what it means to be fearless. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Teri Clark Linden.

A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of 2017 Franklin Foer reveals the existential threat posed by big tech, and in his brilliant polemic gives us the toolkit to fight their pervasive influence. Over the past few decades there has been a revolution in terms of who controls knowledge and information. This rapid change has imperiled the way we think. Without pausing to consider the cost, the world has rushed to embrace the products and services of four titanic corporations. We shop with Amazon; socialize on Facebook; turn to Apple for entertainment; and rely on Google for information. These firms sell their efficiency and purport to make the world a better place, but what they have done instead is to enable an intoxicating level of daily convenience. As these companies have expanded, marketing themselves as champions of individuality and pluralism, their algorithms have pressed us into conformity and laid waste to privacy. They have produced an unstable and narrow culture of misinformation, and put us on a path to a world without private contemplation, autonomous thought, or solitary introspection-a world without mind. In order to restore our inner lives, we must avoid being coopted by these gigantic companies, and understand the ideas that underpin their success. Elegantly tracing the intellectual history of computer science-from Descartes and the enlightenment to Alan Turing to Stuart Brand and the hippie origins of today´s Silicon Valley-Foer exposes the dark underpinnings of our most idealistic dreams for technology. The corporate ambitions of Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon, he argues, are trampling longstanding liberal values, especially intellectual property and privacy. This is a nascent stage in the total automation and homogenization of social, political, and intellectual life. By reclaiming our private authority over how we intellectually engage with the world, we have the power to stem the tide. At stake is nothing less than who we are, and what we will become. There have been monopolists in the past but today´s corporate giants have far more nefarious aims. They´re monopolists who want access to every facet of our identities and influence over every corner of our decision-making. Until now few have grasped the sheer scale of the threat. Foer explains not just the looming existential crisis but the imperative of resistance. Named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times ? L.A. Times ? NPR

ggf. zzgl. Versand

It´s the last ski weekend of the season and a mishmash of snow enthusiasts are on their way to a remote backwoods cabin. In an odd pilgrimage through the mountains, the townsfolk of Coalton - from the ski bum to the urbanite - embark on a bizarre adventure that walks the line between comedy and tragedy. As the rednecks mount their sleds and the hippies snowshoe through the cedar forest, we see rivals converge for the weekend. While listeners follow the characters on their voyage up and over the mountain, stereotypes of ski town culture fall away. Loco, the ski bum, is about to start his first real job; Alison, the urbanite, is forced to learn how to wield an avalanche shovel; and Michael, the real estate developer, is high on mushroom tea. In a blend of mordant humor and heartbreak, Angie Abdou chronicles a day in the life of these industrious few as they attempt to conquer the mountain. In an avalanche of action, Angie Abdou explores the way in which people treat their fellow citizens and the landscape they love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marcie Millard.

What would you do if your world was dying? What would you do if you had a vision and perhaps if you followed that vision, you could save your world? What if your vision took you to a new world? Once there you find your soulmate, but she doesn´t speak your language and you don´t speak hers. Will you keep following your vision wherever it leads you? Will she accept you for who you are? Will she help you save your world? Xeechagillapxtuurii jumps into the raging current to be carried downstream in search of his vision. He finds his vision, including the one he is looking for. But this world is totally foreign to him. Nobody understands him. Somehow he must gain her trust and communicate with them. Somehow he must get her to want to come back to his world to help him save it. Sylvia is a college student. She is holed up in her truck during the storm. When she sees a hippie being driven towards her truck, she responds as she always does when she sees someone or some animal in need - she opens the passenger door and pull some blankets from the back for him to wrap up in. What will she do with this stranger who has entered her life? How will she be able to communicate with him when nobody, not even the language professor can understand him? 1. Language: English.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Few words are loaded with such controversy as the word peace. For some this word conjures up images of bell bottomed clad hippies during the 1960s anti-war movement. For others the topic of peace is deeply spiritual and rooted in religious beliefs. As you look around the world, you can see conflicts are escalating both at the family, community, and international level. This audiobook challenges the notion that true peace is attainable absent anything short of a spiritual revolution. This book is designed to give you a fresh perspective on the historical and timeless origins of peace and help you find the path to true and lasting peace that you deeply long for. 1.

The LawDog Files: African Adventures , Hörbuch,...

LawDog had the honor of representing law and order in the Texas town of Bugscuffle as a sheriff´s deputy, where he became notorious for, among other things, the famous Case of the Pink Gorilla Suit. But long before he first put on the deputy´s star, he grew up in Nigeria, where his experiences were equally unforgettable. In The Lawdog Files: African Adventures, LawDog chronicles his encounters with everything from bush pilots, 15-foot pythons, pygmy mongooses, brigadier-captains, and Peace Corp hippies to the Nigerian space program. The Lawdog Files: African Adventures is every bit as hilarious as the previous volume, as LawDog relates his unforgettable experiences in a laconic, self-deprecating manner that is funny in its own right. Africa wins again, and again, and again, but so too does the reader in this sobering but hilarious collection of true tales from the Dark Continent. Audiobook narrated by David T. Williams. 1.
