Andrew the Airplane , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 11min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

There was once a little green airplane named Andrew. Not only is Andrew the Airplane smart, but he´s also great at his job. Nobody could fly like Andrew the Airplane, but now the newer and bigger planes don´t think Andrew is good enough to keep up with them. They tease Andrew and tell him that he´s far too small to be a good plane. They say that he´s too old to fly in the air and deliver packages. The other planes start to get more deliveries than Andrew because they are bigger and can travel longer distances. Unfortunately for Andrew, he´s stored away in the plane hangar while the other planes become more popular. No one remembers that Andrew the Airplane is great in the air and the world moves on. Packages get delivered and poor old Andrew the Airplane is left alone. Well, until your child comes along and encourages him by building his self-esteem and showing Andrew how important and special he really is. One day a very large storm hits and manages to split the runway in half. None of the newer and bigger planes can use the runway because now it´s too small. The nearby town´s electricity has gone out and the people living there need fresh supplies. But with most of the planes being far too large, how can the supplies be delivered using such a small runway? Will Andrew the Airplane be able to prove that he has what it takes to deliver the supplies to the stranded townspeople, or are the big planes right, and is Andrew just far too small to be of any help? 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In September 2000, a young programmer comes home from a desert festival to learn that his grandfather has died and that he has to return to Thebes - a town which is so isolated that its inhabitants have their own language - in order to clean out the house where his family lived for five generations. While he’s there, he runs into Yesim, a Turkish American woman whom he loved as a child, and begins a romance in which past and present are dangerously confused. At the same time, he remembers San Francisco in the wild years of the internet boom, and mourns the loss of Swan, a madman who may have been the only person to understand what was happening to the city, and to the world. La Farge’s ambitious new work considers large worlds and small ones, love, memory, family, flying machines, dance music, and the end of the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charles Carroll.

Assassin´s Silence: A David Slaton Novel , Hörb...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Every so often, a great assassin novel comes along: Brad Meltzer´s The Fifth Assassin, David Baldacci´s The Hit, Daniel Silva´s The Kill Artist. Now Ward Larsen brings us Assassin´s Silence, featuring David Slaton, hero of Larsen´s Assassin´s Game and the award-winning The Perfect Assassin. When it comes to disappearing, David Slaton has few equals. Police in three countries have written off trying to find him. His old employer, Mossad, keeps no forwarding address. Even his wife and son are convinced he is dead. So when an assault team strikes, Slaton is taken by surprise. He kills one man and manages to escape. Half a world away, in the baleful heat of the Amazon, an obscure air cargo company purchases a derelict airliner. Teams of mechanics work feverishly to make the craft airworthy. On the first flight, the jet plunges toward the ocean. The CIA assesses the two spectacles: a practiced killer leaving a trail of bodies across Europe and a large airplane disappearing without a trace. The two affairs are increasingly seen to be intertwined. Langley realizes the killer is a man long thought to be dead, and the lost airliner has been highly modified into a tool of unimaginable terror. When their worst fears are realized, Langley must trust the one man who can save them: David Slaton, the perfect assassin. 1. Language: English. Narrator: P. J. Ochlan.

Piezoelectric Shells: Sensing, Energy Harvestin...
€ 210.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book offers an introduction to piezoelectric shells and distributed sensing, energy harvesting and control applications. It familiarizes readers with a generic approach of piezoelectric shells and fundamental electromechanics of distributed piezoelectric sensors, energy harvesters and actuators applied to shell structures. The book is divided into two major parts, the first of which focuses on piezoelectric shell continua, while the second examines distributing sensing, energy harvesting and control of elastic continua, e.g., shells and plates. The exploitation of new, advanced multifunctional smart structures and structronic systems has been one of the mainstream research and development activities over the years. In the search for innovative structronics technologies, piezoelectric materials have proved to be very versatile in both sensor and actuator applications. Consequently, the piezoelectric technology has been applied to a broad range of practical applications, from small-scale nano- and micro-sensors/actuators to large-scale airplane and space structures and systems. The book provides practicing engineers and researchers with an introduction to advanced piezoelectric shell theories and distributed sensor/energy harvester/actuator technologies in the context of structural identification, energy harvesting and precision control. The book can also be used as a textbook for graduate students. This second edition contains substantial new materials, especially energy harvesting and experimental components, and has been updated and corrected for a new generation of readers.

The Arsenal of Democracy: FDR, Detroit, and an ...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A New York Times best seller. A dramatic, intimate narrative of how Ford Motor Company went from making automobiles to producing the airplanes that would mean the difference between winning and losing World War II. In 1941, as Hitler’s threat loomed ever larger, President Roosevelt realized he needed weaponry to fight the Nazis - most important, airplanes - and he needed them fast. So he turned to Detroit and the auto industry for help. The Arsenal of Democracy tells the incredible story of how Detroit answered the call, centering on Henry Ford and his tortured son Edsel, who, when asked if they could deliver 50,000 airplanes, made an outrageous claim: Ford Motor Company would erect a plant that could yield a ´´bomber an hour´´. Critics scoffed: Ford didn’t make planes; they made simple, affordable cars. But bucking his father’s resistance, Edsel charged ahead. Ford would apply assembly-line production to the American military’s largest, fastest, most destructive bomber; they would build a plant vast in size and ambition on a plot of farmland and call it Willow Run; they would bring in tens of thousands of workers from across the country, transforming Detroit, almost overnight, from Motor City to the ´´great arsenal of democracy.” And eventually they would help the Allies win the war. Drawing on exhaustive research from the Ford Archives, the National Archives, and the FDR Library, A. J. Baime has crafted an enthralling, character-driven narrative of American innovation that has never been fully told, leaving readers with a vivid new portrait of America - and Detroit - during the war. 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The California revealed here is not the stereotypical land of movie stars, sensational trials, or tourist snapshots, but instead a remarkable patchwork of out-of-the-way places and everyday people. Former Los Angeles Times columnist Charles Hillinger hones in on what makes each county unique, such as Johnny Heinold´s First and Last Chance tavern in Alameda County, where Jack London first began writing his stories. Listeners also learn about the man who flew an airplane long before the Wright Brothers, the church with stained-glass windows commemorating preachers, and the museum with the largest collection of mummies on the West Coast. 1.
