Ann Liguori's Audio Hall of Fame: Ted Williams,...

Ted Williams defined excellence in whatever he took on. Whether he was playing left field in the major leagues, or flying an airplane, Williams would not settle for second-best. He played 21 seasons with the Boston Red Sox in a career interrupted two times by service as a Marine Corps pilot. He is widely considered one of the greatest hitters in baseball, was a two-time American League MVP, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. In 1941, he batted over .400 in a single season and no one has touched the record since. Ironically, Williams attributes the secret of his success to 'pure luck.' Here, Williams is interviewed in Boston during All-Star Week by Ann Liguori, award-winning luminary in sports broadcasting with a celebrated career that spans two decades. Liguori has interviewed some of the most legendary sports personalities, drawing out their success stories, their opinions on a variety of issues, and their love of the game. 1. Language: English.

The Last of the Doughboys: The Forgotten Genera...

In 2003, eighty-five years after the armistice, it took Richard Rubin months to find just one living American veteran of World War I. But then, he found another. And another. Eventually, he found dozens, aged 101 to 113, and interviewed them. All are gone now. A decade-long odyssey to recover the story of a forgotten generation and their war led Rubin across the United States and France, through archives, private collections, battlefields, literature, propaganda, and even music. But at the center of it all were the last of the last, the men and women he met: a new immigrant, drafted and sent to France, whose life was saved by a horse; a Connecticut Yankee who volunteered and fought in every major American battle; a Cajun artilleryman nearly killed by a German airplane; an eighteen-year-old Bronx girl “drafted” to work for the War Department; a machine gunner from Montana; a marine wounded at Belleau Wood; the sixteen-year-old who became America’s last World War I veteran; and many more. They were the final survivors of the millions who made up the American Expeditionary Forces, nineteenth-century men and women living in the twenty-first century. Self-reliant, humble, and stoic, they kept their stories to themselves for a lifetime, then shared them at the last possible moment so that they, and the war they won - the trauma that created our modern world - might at last be remembered. You will never forget them. The Last of the Doughboys is more than simply a war story; it is a moving meditation on character, grace, aging, and memory. 1. Language: English.

In the international best seller The Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charles Duhigg explained why we do what we do. In Smarter Faster Better, he applies the same relentless curiosity, rigorous reporting and rich storytelling to explain how we can get better at the things we do. The result is a groundbreaking exploration of the science of productivity. A group of data scientists at Google embark on a four-year study of how the best teams function and find that how a group interacts is much more important than who is in the group. A marine corps general, faced with low morale among recruits, reimagines boot camp - and discovers that instilling a 'bias toward action' can turn even the most directionless teenagers into self-motivating achievers. The filmmakers behind Disney's Frozen are on the brink of catastrophe - until they shake up their team in just the right way, spurring a creative breakthrough that leads to one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. What do these people have in common? They know that productivity relies on making certain choices. The way we frame our daily decisions; the big ambitions we embrace and the easy goals we ignore; the cultures we establish as leaders to drive innovation: these are the things that separate the merely busy from the genuinely productive. At the core of Smarter Faster Better are eight key concepts - from motivation and goal setting to focus and decision making - that explain why some people and companies get so much done. Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology and behavioural eco­nomics - as well as the experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, airplane pilots and Broadway songwriters - this painstakingly researched book explains that the most productive people, companies and organizations don't merely act differently. They view the world, and their choices, in profoundly different 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Chamberlain. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rhuk/002335/bk_rhuk_002335_sample.mp3.

At the core of Smarter Faster Better are eight key productivity concepts - from motivation and goal setting to focus and decision making - that explain why some people and companies get so much done. Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics - as well as the experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, FBI agents, airplane pilots, and Broadway songwriters - this painstakingly researched book explains that the most productive people, companies, and organizations don’t merely act differently. They view the world, and their choices, in profoundly different ways.A young woman drops out of a PhD program and starts playing poker.

A group of data scientists at Google embark on a four-year study of how the best teams function, and find that how a group interacts is more important than who is in the group - a principle, it turns out, that also helps explain why Saturday Night Live became a hit.

Corrosion Resistant Behaviour of Herbal Plants ...

Brass, mild steel and copper have been used in various industrial applications. The economic impact can be reduced by reducing material losses, as well as subsequent economic losses, e.g. the corrosion of piping, tanks, metal components of machines, ships, bridges, marine structures, etc. Corrosion of turbine blades, bridges, airplane components, automotive steering mechanisms, pressure vessels, boilers and metallic containers for toxic chemicals are a few examples of catastrophic consequences, hence safety is a critical consideration in equipment design. Though many synthetic compounds have shown good anticorrosive activity, most of them are highly toxic to both human beings and environment. The known hazardous effects of most synthetic organic inhibitors and restrictive environmental regulations have now made many researchers to focus on the need to develop cheap, non-toxic and environmentally benign natural products as corrosion inhibitors.In the present investigation, an attempt has been made to examine the dissolution of copper, Brass and mild steel in acid environment containing various green plant extract were used as corrosion inhibitors.
