Six years have passed since the failed uprising of the High Holders, and the man behind the conspiracy is where the rex and Maitre Alastar can keep an eye on him. Charyn has come of age and desperately wants to learn more so that he can become an effective rex after his father - but he´s kept at a distance by the rex. So Charyn sets out to educate himself - circumspectly. When Jarolian privateers disrupt Solidar´s shipping, someone attempts to kill Charyn´s younger brother as an act of protest. Threatening notes follow in the wake of acts of violence against the rex and his family, demanding action - build more ships or expect someone to die. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dufris.

New Second Edition What if the government decided to invent a great lie to justify a disastrous war? What would happen to the people who know the truth? Extreme Prejudice delivers an explosive, high tension expose of the real facts surrounding the CIA´s advance warning of 9/11 and an insider´s look at Iraqi pre-war intelligence, told by one of the very few US assets covering Iraq before the war. It reveals the depths of deception by leaders in Washington and London to promote a successful image of their terrorism policy, and the shocking brutality to suppress the truth of their failures from Americans and the world community. 1.

The Supreme Court ruled on several landmark cases this week — not only the Affordable Healthcare Act, but also a challenge to Arizona´s controversial, and influential, immigration law. The court ruled that most, but not all, of the law was unconstitutional. It comes on the heels of President Obama’s announcement that his administration would not deport the 800,000 undocumented immigrants under 30 who arrived here as children. Next, the new movie Beasts of the Southern Wild is a Louisiana fairy tale with a six-year-old hero. Hushpuppy lives with her father in an isolated bayou netherworld they call the Bathtub, a tiny community of scavengers separated from the mainland by a levee. When a storm nearly washes the Bathtub away, Hushpuppy struggles to survive and to make sense of her perilous place in the universe.Then, just in time for Canada’s 145th birthday (July 1 is Canada Day, in case you forgot), Studio 360 gives our northern neighbor a brand makeover. For the last several weeks, we’ve been looking at the image challenge After that, Kurt Andersen and Jian Ghomeshi, the host of Q, the CBC´s daily arts and culture show go head to head in a cross-border cultural quiz. The North American showdown is the culmination to our month-long redesign project. While Studio 360 has been rebranding Canada, Q has been redesigning America.And finally, Canadian folk-rock musicians — Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Cowboy Junkies, k.d. lang, to name a few — have made it big south of the border while retaining something essentially Canadian in their music. Perhaps it’s a sense of longing born of Canada’s wide, empty spaces. [Broadcast Date: June 30, 2012] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kurt Andersen.

This edited volume discusses critically discursive claims about the theological foundations connecting Islam to certain manifestations of violent extremism. Such claims and associated debates become even more polarizing when images of violent acts of terrorism performed in the name of Islam circulate in the global media. The authors argue that the visibility of such mediated violent extremism, in particular since the emergence of ISIS, has created a major political and security challenge not only to the world but also to the global Muslim community. This is particularly true in relation to the way Islam is being understood and characterized in the modern world. Existing studies on radicalization generally deal with causes and strategies to address violent extremism. The book will appeal to scholars, researchers and students in political science, Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies.
A celebration of the timeless act of reading - as seen through the lens of one of the worlds most beloved photographers Young or old, rich or poor, engaged in the sacred or the secular, people everywhere read. This homage to the beauty and seductiveness of reading brings together a collection of photographs taken by Steve McCurry over his nearly four decades of travel and is introduced by award-winning writer, Paul Theroux. McCurrys mesmerizing images of the universal human act of reading are an acknowledgement of - and a tribute to - the overwhelming power of the written word.
The task of encouraging employees to build and strengthen an organization s brand image that is, encouraging them to act as ´´brand champions´´ is a challenge for businesses high in customer interaction. In this effort, supervisors play a critical role as they are the ones who need to motivate and guide employees´ brand building behavior. But what can managers actually do to have employees act on behalf of the corporate brand? The author Felicitas Morhart answers this question in a twofold way: First, in terms of what managers should do and second, in terms of what managers are able to do. She therefore presents results of two studies. In a first study, she shows which leadership style is most effective for enabling brand-building behaviors among employees and the psychological processes involved. In a second study, she examines the question of whether it is possible for managers to learn the very leadership style that has been identified as superior in the first study.
This Very Short Introduction describes the new field of cognitive neuroscience - the study of what happens in the brain when we perceive, think, reason, remember, and act. Focusing on the human brain, Passingham looks at the most recent research in the field, the modern brain imaging technologies, and what the images can and can´t tell us.
Grenzenloses Streben nach Macht, unstillbarer Ehrgeiz, ein Ehepaar voller ruchloser Ambitionen und Pläne, dazu noch das Wirken übernatürlicher Kräfte vor der Kulisse des mittelalterlichen Schottlands - bereits Shakespeares Tragödie Macbeth liest sich wie das Skript eines gelungenen Psychothrillers, dessen Handlung voller Schrecken, Chaos und Leidenschaft das Publikum von Beginn an fesselt.
