The Scandal of the Century, and Other Writings

Author: Cristóbal Pera, Gabriel García Márquez Narrator: Bernardo De Paula Release Date: September 2021

From one of the titans of twentieth-century literature, collected here for the first time: a selection of his journalism from the late 1940s to the mid-1980s-work that he considered even more important to his legacy than his universally acclaimed works of fiction. "I don't want to be remembered for One Hundred Years of Solitude or for the Nobel Prize, but rather for my journalism," Gabriel García Márquez said in the final years of his life. And while some of his journalistic writings have been made available over the years, this is the first volume to gather a representative selection from across the first four decades of his career-years during which he worked as a full-time, often muckraking, and controversial journalist, even as he penned the fiction that would bring him the Nobel Prize in 1982. Here are the first pieces he wrote while working for newspapers in the coastal Colombian cities of Cartagena and Barranquilla ... his longer, more fiction-like reportage from Paris and Rome ... his monthly columns for Spain's El País. And while all the work points in style, wit, depth, and passion to his fiction, these fifty pieces are, more than anything, a revelation of the writer working at the profession he believed to be "the best in the world."

Delight in the Limelight: Overcome Your Fear of Being Seen and Realize Your Dreams Audiobook

Delight in the Limelight: Overcome Your Fear of Being Seen and Realize Your Dreams

Author: Linda Ugelow Narrator: Linda Ugelow Release Date: September 2021

Yes, you can learn to love the spotlight. Why do some of us gladly step forward while others shy away from public speaking, despite having something to say? If you've ever watched others take the stage-at conferences, in meetings, or even at your sister's wedding-and yearned for the confidence to do the same-you can. In this transformational guide, speaking coach Linda Ugelow delivers a holistic methodology that gets to the root of what's stopping you from sharing your voice. Through powerful exercises and real-life stories of conquering performance nerves (including her own), Ugelow tells you how to free yourself from the anxieties and psychological roadblocks that are holding you back, and actually learn to enjoy the limelight. You'll also learn exactly how to effectively prepare for speaking opportunities; how to memorize effectively; how to finally eliminate your use of filler words (like "um" or "right?"); and how to smoothly navigate slip-ups in front of an audience. This isn't an audiobook about "feeling the fear and doing it anyway," it's about shedding that fear, loving yourself, and embracing opportunities to shine brightly. Whether your audience is online, in the boardroom, in a theatre, or in the workplace, your journey to full self-expression begins here.

Comunicación De Alto Impacto: Consejos Para Transmitir Su Mensaje Más Fuerte En 1 Minuto Audiobook

Comunicación De Alto Impacto: Consejos Para Transmitir Su Mensaje Más Fuerte En 1 Minuto

Author: Libroteka Narrator: Libroteka Release Date: September 2021

Fundamentos de la comunicación     Dado que nuestras mentes están atestadas de tanta información, hay muy poco tiempo o espacio para dedicarse a información frívola e irrelevante, de ahí la necesidad de ser precisos y rápidos al comunicar.   Con las agendas agitadas y las distracciones a las que hay que hacer frente, a menudo es bastante difícil tomarse el tiempo para detenerse y prestar atención a lo que se comunica. Lo básico   A continuación se ofrecen algunas recomendaciones sobre cómo garantizar que la información que se comunica se hace en el menor tiempo posible y, sin embargo, la parte receptora la entiende perfectamente:   -Quizás la forma más efectiva de comunicar información y que ésta sea entendida es asegurarse de que haya un contacto visual constante con el receptor, durante toda la sesión de comunicación. También debe hacerse en un tiempo preciso y rápido en el que la información se presente de la forma más concisa posible.   Hacer que el destinatario resuma y repita lo que se ha comunicado es también otro método para garantizar que la información se escuche y se entienda. También es otra forma de garantizar que el contenido de la información sigue siendo el mismo que se presentó y que no hay adiciones o distorsiones en el contenido.   -El diseño del lenguaje y la redacción también deben estar en consonancia con la capacidad y los niveles de comprensión del destinatario. Hablar con alguien que no conozca la jerga técnica utilizada no sólo será una pérdida de tiempo y esfuerzo, sino que además parecerá pretencioso a los que estén cerca. Este tipo de comunicación no sería en absoluto eficaz.

WRITE A BOOK WITHOUT BREAKING A SWEAT: Secrets to writing a book with ease Audiobook

WRITE A BOOK WITHOUT BREAKING A SWEAT: Secrets to writing a book with ease

Author: Toyin Obafemi Narrator: Toyin Obafemi Release Date: September 2021

While surfing the net, I saw this- “97% of writers don’t finish their novels”. I don’t know how this figure was arrived at but it depicts the picture of many people who actually started writing a book but never finished. They started out with enthusiasm but remained at the first chapter for weeks, months and even years until they forget about the book in its entirety. It is not uncommon to find it difficult to start writing a book or to finish writing a book if one is at least able to start. Do you feel like writing a book and you find it difficult to start? I got you covered in this book. Have you started and it is taking forever to finish up on the book? I got you covered likewise in this piece. I have written and published 9 books with global distribution. If you care to know, I am just starting as I have more books underway. I wrote and published 4 books in 6 months despite my busy schedule as a physician. Several people have asked how I am able to combine my schedule with writing. I have therefore decided to share some of my secrets with you in this book. Get your copy and let us go for a ride.

Index, A History of the Audiobook

Index, A History of the

Author: Dennis Duncan Narrator: Neil Gardner Release Date: September 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. Most of us give little thought to the back of the book - it's just where you go to look things up. But here, hiding in plain sight, is an unlikely realm of ambition and obsession, sparring and politicking, pleasure and play. Here we might find Butchers, to be avoided, or Cows that sh-te Fire, or even catch Calvin in his chamber with a Nonne. This is the secret world of the index: an unsung but extraordinary everyday tool, with an illustrious but little-known past. Here, for the first time, its story is told. Charting its curious path from the monasteries and universities of thirteenth-century Europe to Silicon Valley in the twenty-first, Dennis Duncan reveals how the index has saved heretics from the stake, kept politicians from high office and made us all into the readers we are today. We follow it through German print shops and Enlightenment coffee houses, novelists' living rooms and university laboratories, encountering emperors and popes, philosophers and prime ministers, poets, librarians and - of course - indexers along the way. Revealing its vast role in our evolving literary and intellectual culture, Duncan shows that, for all our anxieties about the Age of Search, we are all index-rakers at heart, and we have been for eight hundred years. © Dennis Duncan 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

All the News That's Fit to Click: How Metrics Are Transforming the Work of Journalists Audiobook

All the News That's Fit to Click: How Metrics Are Transforming the Work of Journalists

Author: Caitlin Petre Narrator: Eva Wilhelm Release Date: September 2021

Journalists today are inundated with data about which stories attract the most clicks, likes, comments, and shares. These metrics influence what stories are written, how news is promoted, and even which journalists get hired and fired. Do metrics make journalists more accountable to the public? Or are these data tools the contemporary equivalent of a stopwatch wielded by a factory boss, worsening newsroom working conditions and journalism quality? Caitlin Petre takes listeners behind the scenes at the New York Times, Gawker, and the prominent news analytics company Chartbeat to explore how performance metrics are transforming the work of journalism. Petre describes how digital metrics are a powerful but insidious new form of managerial surveillance and discipline. Real-time analytics tools are designed to win the trust and loyalty of wary journalists by mimicking key features of addictive games, including immersive displays, instant feedback, and constantly updated 'scores' and rankings. Many journalists get hooked on metrics and pressure themselves to work ever harder. Yet this is not a simple story of managerial domination. Contrary to the typical perception of metrics as inevitably disempowering, Petre shows how journalists leverage metrics to their advantage, using them to advocate for their professional worth and autonomy.

Getting to the Heart of Science Communication: A Guide to Effective Engagement Audiobook

Getting to the Heart of Science Communication: A Guide to Effective Engagement

Author: Faith Kearns Narrator: Callie Beaulieu Release Date: September 2021

Scientists today working on controversial issues from climate change to drought to COVID-19 are finding themselves more often in the middle of deeply traumatizing or polarized conflicts. It is no longer enough for scientists to communicate a scientific topic clearly. They must not only be experts in their fields of study, but also experts in navigating the thoughts, feelings, and opinions of members of the public they engage with, and with each other. And the conversations are growing more fraught. In Getting to the Heart of Science Communication, Faith Kearns has penned a succinct guide for navigating the human relationships critical to the success of practice-based science. Using interviews and personal anecdotes, as well as her own insights as a field scientist, Kearns walks listeners through the evolution of science communication and how emotional and high-stakes issues have shaped communication. The meat of the book lies in the middle chapters, where Kearns offers key tools for communicators: listening, working with conflict, and understanding trauma, loss, and healing. She concludes the book with a substantive discussion on diversity, equity, and inclusion in science communication, and advice to listeners for handling their own emotional needs in an unpredictable career landscape.

A Dictionary of English and Spanish Equivalent Proverbs Audiobook

A Dictionary of English and Spanish Equivalent Proverbs

Author: Teodor Flonta Narrator: David Daintree, Imma Padilla Mas Hilly, Teodor Flonta Release Date: September 2021

This dictionary is organized in sets of proverbs, where the English proverb is followed by one or more Spanish equivalent proverbs. The English proverbs are arranged according to a main word. Equivalent proverbs are those which express the same concept, be it literally or with different words.  Proverbs included in this collection come from monolingual, bilingual and multilingual collections, some as old as the 16th century, and it should be accepted that some of them are contradictory, discriminatory, blasphemous or scurrilous and as such they reflect past attitudes and express the idiosyncrasies of a people and their culture through time and history. At the same time, proverbs are based on the practical experience of humankind and show us that we can change and do better. While proverbs are still used today in a traditional way, that is in speech, literature and teaching, they have found a new ever-expanding use in the advertising industry and in the mass media. Proverbs like 'Here today, gone tomorrow' become 'Hair today, gone tomorrow' in the hair-removal industry, while the mass media has a variety of paraphrases such as 'Hear today, gone tomorrow,' 'Heir today, gone tomorrow.' Before the Barcelona Olympic Games, the old proverb 'All roads lead to Rome' became 'All roads lead to Barcelona' in many English language newspapers and magazines. This is a phenomenon encountered in many languages today and is undoubtedly a sign of the proverb's resilience and vitality. As travel has become more frequent than in the past, more people learn foreign languages and proverbs are borrowed from the cultures they come in contact with. It is good, therefore, to be familiar with them. Read by native speakers, the proverbs in this dictionary will allow you to practice the language you are studying, by helping you improve your pronunciation, enrich your vocabulary and become familiar with the structure of the language.
