Why Planes Crash: An Accident Investigator's Fi...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Boarding an airplane strikes at least a small sense of fear into most people. Even though we all have heard that the odds of being struck by lightning are greater than the odds of perishing in a plane crash, it still doesn't feel that way. Airplane crashes might be rare, but they do happen, and they’re usually fatal. David Soucie insists that most of these deaths could be prevented. He’s worked as a pilot, a mechanic, an FAA inspector, and an aviation executive. He’s seen death up close and personal - deaths of colleagues and friends that might have been prevented if he had approved certain safety measures in the aircrafts they were handling. His years of experience have led Dave to become an impassioned consultant on the topic of airline safety. This includes not only advising the Obama administration, but also taking a leading role in the congressionally funded NextGen interdepartmental initiative in regards to both the department of transportation and the departments of defense, homeland security, FBI, CIA, and others. Find out the truth about airplane safety and discover what the future holds for air travel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Chamberlain.

When Photojournalist Nancy Borowick's parents-Howie and Laurel-were diagnosed with stage IV cancer and simultaneously underwent treatment, she did the only thing she knew how-she documented it. By turning the camera on her family's life during this most intimate time, Borowick learned a great deal about herself, family, and relationships in general. She discovered that her parents' marriage-while complex-was an intricate symbiosis of compassion. Their partnership and sense of family only deepened. And no matter the prognosis, there was always room for laughter. Today, Borowick, herself, is married. Her father passed away in 2013, and her mom followed suit, 364 days later. The lessons she garnered from Howie and Laurel were plentiful: always call when the airplane lands, never pass on blueberry pie-and most importantly, family is love and love is family.

The news is everywhere. We can’t stop constantly checking it on our computer screens, but what is this doing to our minds? We are never really taught how to make sense of the torrent of news we face every day, writes Alain de Botton (author of the best-selling The Architecture of Happiness), but this has a huge impact on our sense of what matters and of how we should lead our lives. In his dazzling new audiobook, de Botton takes twenty-five archetypal news stories - including an airplane crash, a murder, a celebrity interview and a political scandal - and submits them to unusually intense analysis with a view to helping us navigate our news-soaked age. He raises such questions as "Why are disaster stories often so uplifting?"; "What makes the love lives of celebrities so interesting?"; "Why do we enjoy watching politicians being brought down?"; "Why are upheavals in far-off lands often so boring?" In The News: A User’s Manual, de Botton has written the ultimate guide for our frenzied era, certain to bring calm, understanding and a measure of sanity to our daily (perhaps even hourly) interactions with the news machine. 1.

Blending Families: Merging Households with Kids...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Blending Families responds to the need for a book that explores stepparenting by starting with the marriage as the central relationship in a new blended family unit. Just as you are better able to help your child in an airplane emergency if you put your oxygen mask on first, you are better able to blend two families if you take care of the marriage first. Starting with a discussion of attachment styles, the authors explore how those styles translate into the new family unit when trying to forge a new marriage while parenting tween and teen children in a family unit that is new to them as well. They provide parenting guidance premised on the fact that parenting occurs within a context, and in this case a context that is unfamiliar territory for everyone involved. Using true stories throughout, they explore the variety of challenges that may arise, such as sibling rivalry, puberty, dating, emotional and intellectual differences and preferential treatment and offer suggestions for overcoming obstacles to fully blending. By focusing the light on the marriage as the most important source of stability, the authors encourage listeners to develop a style of parenting that works for everyone and brings a sense of unity and strength to the household. 1.

Becoming Faulkner: The Art and Life of William ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

William Faulkner was the greatest American novelist of the 20th century, yet he lived a life marked by a pervasive sense of failure. Throughout his career, he remained haunted by his inability to master a series of personal and professional challenges: his less-than-heroic military career; the loss of his brother in an airplane crash; a disappointing stint as a Hollywood screenwriter; and a destructive bout with alcoholism. In this imaginative biography, Philip Weinstein - a leading authority on the great novelist - targets Faulkner's embattled sense of self as central to both his life and his work. Weinstein shows how Faulkner's troubled interactions with time, place, and history - with antebellum practices and racial division - take on their fullest meanings in his fiction. Exploring the resonance of his own unpreparedness, Faulkner invented a singular language that captured human consciousness under stress as never before. Becoming Faulkner joins Faulkner's life and art in a bold new way, giving listeners a full vantage from which to better understand this 20th-century literary genius. Weinstein shows how Faulkner's troubled interactions with time, place, and history - with antebellum practices and southern heritage - form a pattern that played out over the course of his entire life. At the same time, these incidents take on their fullest meanings in his fiction. It was in meditating on his failures, his own unreadiness, Weinstein argues, that Faulkner came up with his singular language, one that captured human consciousness under stress as never before. His fruitless striving catapulted American literature to a new level of sophistication. Narrating the events that comprised Faulkner's life, biographers have long struggled to depict his personal complexity, the paradoxes that shaped his decisions and dogged his relationships. But without a consideration of the writing as well, the troubles in the life fail to reveal their deeper resonance. By sk 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edoardo Ballerini.

Life is too short and too precious to allow ourselves to be sidetracked by impossible people and the impossible problems they create.

Perhaps the realization comes when we hit a 40th birthday or a 15th wedding anniversary. All of a sudden, life is flying by. What we want at that point more than anything is to pay attention to what matters.

Dear Edward

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'Astonishing' Marian Keyes 'Outstanding' John Boyne A luminous, life-affirming novel about a 12-year-old boy who is the sole survivor of a deadly plane crash One summer morning, a flight takes off from New York to Los Angeles. There are 192 passengers aboard: among them a young woman taking a pregnancy test in the airplane toilet; a Wall Street millionaire flirting with the air hostess; an injured soldier returning from Afghanistan; and two beleaguered parents moving across the country with their adolescent sons, bickering over who gets the window seat. When the plane suddenly crashes in a field in Colorado, the younger of these boys, 12-year-old Edward Adler, is the sole survivor. Dear Edward depicts Edward's life in the crash's aftermath as he struggles to make sense of the meaning of his survival, the strangeness of his sudden fame, and find his place in the world without his family. In his new home with his aunt and uncle, the only solace comes from his friendship with the girl next door, Shay. Together Edward and Shay make a startling discovery: hidden in his uncle's garage are sacks of letters from the relatives of the other passengers, addressed to Edward. As Edward comes of age against the backdrop of sudden tragedy, he must confront some of life's most profound questions: how do we make the most of the time we are given? And what does it mean not just to survive, but to truly live? 'Dear Edward made me think, nod in recognition, care about its characters, and cry, and you can't ask more of a novel than that' Emma Donoghue, bestselling author of Room 'Dear Edward is that rare book that breaks your heart and stitches it back together... Don't miss this one' Jodi Picoult 'A haunting novel that's a masterful study in suspense, grief and survival' New York Times 'A poignant novel about grief and hope' Marie Claire 'Stunning, life-affirming' Vogue
