Did you know Band-Aids were invented by accident?! And that they weren't mass-produced until the Boy Scouts gave their seal of approval? In the 1920s cotton buyer Earle Dickson worked for Johnson & Johnson and had a klutzy wife who often cut herself. The son of a doctor, Earle set out to create an easier way for her to bandage her injuries. Band-Aids were born, but Earle's bosses at the pharmaceutical giant weren't convinced, and it wasn't until the Boy Scouts of America tested Earle's prototype that this ubiquitous household staple was made available to the public. Soon Band-Aids were selling like hotcakes, and the rest is boo-boo history. 1. Language: English. Narrator: L. J. Ganser.

Loving Jesus , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 190min

Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, Mother Teresa humbly accepted it on behalf of the poorest of the poor to whom she joyfully dedicated her life. Truly a saint for the 20th century, she taught compassion not only for the sick and destitute, but also for the lonely, neglected, and unappreciated who surround us every day. Among Mother Teresa’s concerns were those that plague modern Christians everywhere: abortion, child abuse and neglect, the lack of love in modern family life, and AIDS, which she called “the leprosy of the West.” She gave strength and inspiration to her Missionaries of Charity, and through them her joyful commitment to Christ continues on. The dual narration by Ruth Ann Phimister and George Guidall, as fervent as a prayer, inspires listeners with Mother Teresa’s simple yet profound message about the value and meaning of life. This diminutive, self-effacing nun’s call to love is a bright beacon of hope in an increasingly self-centered world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Guidall, Ruth Ann Phimister.

Scotland Yard's First Cases , Hörbuch, Digital,...

When Scotland Yard’s first detective branch was set up in 1842, crime was very different from today. The favoured murder weapon was the cut-throat razor; carrying a pocket watch was dangerous; the most significant clue at a murder scene could be the whereabouts of a candlestick or hat; large households (family, servants and lodgers) complicated many a case; and servants sometimes murdered their masters. Detectives had few aids and suffered many disadvantages.  The bloody handprints found at two early murder scenes were of no help, there being no way of telling whether blood (or hair) was human or animal.  Fingerprinting was 50 years away, DNA profiling another hundred, and photography was too new to help with identification.  The detectives had no transport and were expected to walk the first three miles on any enquiry before catching an omnibus or cab and trying to recoup the fares.  All reports had to be handwritten with a dip pen and ink, and the only means of keeping contact with colleagues and disseminating information was by post, horseback or foot. In spite of these handicaps and severe press criticism, the detectives achieved some significant successes.  Joan Lock includes such classic cases as the First Railway Murder, as well as many fascinating, fresh reports, weaving in new developments like the electric telegraph against a background of authentic Victorian police procedure. Charles Dickens said that Scotland Yard detectives gave the impression of leading lives of strong mental excitement. Listeners of this book will understand why.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Fox. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/howe/004517/bk_howe_004517_sample.mp3.

Dick Cole’s War: Doolittle Raider, Hump Pilot, ...

With the 100th anniversary of his birth on September 7, 2015, Dick Cole has long stood in the powerful spotlight of fame that has followed him since his B-25 was launched from a Navy carrier and flown toward Japan just four months after the attack on Pearl Harbor. In recognition the tremendous boost Doolittle’s Raid gave American morale, members of the Tokyo Doolittle Raiders were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in May 2014.Doolittle’s Raid was only the opening act of Cole’s flying career during the war. When that mission was complete and all of the 16 aircraft had crash-landed in China, many of the survivors were assigned to combat units in Europe. Cole remained in India after their rescue and was assigned to Ferrying Command, flying the Hump of the Himalayas for a year in the world’s worst weather, with inadequate aircraft, few aids to navigation, and inaccurate maps.More than 600 aircraft with their crews were lost during this monumental effort to keep China in the war, but Cole survived and rotated home in 1943. He was home just a few months when he was recruited for the First Air Commandos and he returned to India to participate in Project 9, the aerial invasion of Burma.The book is published by University of Missouri Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.“Okerstrom illuminates the mindset of combat aviators like few other authors. He is also a skilled writer with a real knack for bringing this important subject to life.” (John C. McManus, general editor of the American Military Experience series) 1. Language: English.

The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-Up:...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

If you saw Afflicted, the documentary series on Netflix, and now think chronic fatigue syndrome is a fake disease that only affects "drama queens", you are sadly mistaken. As you will learn in Charles Ortleb's historically important audiobook, chronic fatigue syndrome is a potentially fatal illness that is contagious and linked to a deadly virus now suspected to be the cause of many immunological illnesses. The fact that doctors and nurses often come down with chronic fatigue syndrome should have made it clear long ago that chronic fatigue syndrome is contagious. The fact that sexual partners of chronic fatigue syndrome patients contract the illness should also have made it clear it is contagious, as well as the fact that entire families and friends have come down with it. And, as this audiobook makes clear, the fact that the pets of people sick with chronic fatigue syndrome also get the illness should have made it painfully obvious that the world is dealing with a unique and terrifying pathogen. This is an audiobook based on the investigative reporting of New York Native, a brilliant and uncompromising little newspaper that pioneered the coverage of both AIDS and chronic fatigue syndrome. Back in the '80s, Rolling Stone said Charles Ortleb's newspaper deserved a Pulitzer Prize, and Randy Shilts gave the newspaper high praise in his best seller And the Band Played On. This is a must-hear audiobook for anyone who wants to know the disturbing history of the chronic fatigue syndrome epidemic. Why have the CDC and NIH pretended that the communicable disease fraudulently called "chronic fatigue syndrome" is a mystery for over three decades? By the end of this audiobook of inconvenient truths, the answer is crystal clear. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Larry Wayne.

You may have probably heard of families that are supported with income generating activities like rearing hens and goats by NGOs but these families end up eating them instead of using them to generate income. In fact it is as if only the hens and goats provided by NGOs are the ones that suddenly get sick and die because it is common that when one visits such families, other hens and possibly goats will be there apart from the ones they received to generate income. One of my respondents said "World Vision gave me hope I would have died by now. But they took me for treatment and bought me a guitar and motorcycle. I now move from village to village sensitisng people on HIV/AIDs". So what exactly is sustainable development? How would an NGO deal with a hungry family? Provide food relief? Support them with an income generating activity?
