The 24-Hour Soup Kitchen: Soul-Stirring Lessons in Gastrophilanthropy Audiobook

The 24-Hour Soup Kitchen: Soul-Stirring Lessons in Gastrophilanthropy

Author: Stephen Henderson Narrator: Adam Lofbomm Release Date: June 2020

It was when traveling on assignment in India that journalist Stephen Henderson first learned of soup kitchens operated by Sikh houses of worship (or gurudwaras). After volunteering for a week at the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in Delhi-which feeds 20,000 men, women, and children every day-Henderson became curious to research global gastrophilanthropy, or the very different ways in which hungry people are served free meals around the world. When newspaper and magazine work dispatched him to places across America and abroad, Henderson would add days to his itineraries to learn about local customs of charitable cookery. This intriguing series of field reports reveals the clamor, chaos, and compassion of kitchens in places such as Iran, Israel, and South Korea, as well as those in Austin, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh. While the recipes, culinary methods, and clientele may vary, all the soul-stirring experiences share a common theme: a great way to show love to the needy is through the gift of food. Written with a huge heart, and an even bigger appetite, these chapters-sad and funny, sometimes both-may inspire you to embark on your own acts of gastrophilanthropy.

Harris Rules: A Real Estate Agent's Practical, No-BS, Step-by-Step Guide to Becoming Rich and Free

Author: Julie Harris, Tim Harris Narrator: Adam Lofbomm Release Date: May 2020

Where does business come from? That's the question every real estate agent asks but few have a truthful answer for. In an industry constantly selling the 'easy button' and overrun with shiny widgets, agents are pulled in multiple directions at once, each promising that if they 'just do this,' their dreams of success and fortune will come true. After twenty years in the business, Tim and Julie Harris tell the hard truths about what it really takes to make it in real estate. The new, revised edition of Harris Rules outlines specific, actionable, and proven rules of engagement that any agent-rookie or veteran-can count on as they pursue their real-estate funded goals and dreams. Harris Rules lays the groundwork, beginning with how agents need to think about the business. Moving them forward with a step-by-step action plan, Tim and Julie show agents how to create longevity by scaling the business and then teach them how to monetize it. In this book, you'll learn: how to control your mindset to get more things done, even when you don't 'feel' like it; the ideal schedule of a top-producing agent; why you can't rely on only one method of generating leads; how to use the proven Seven-Step Listing Process to win the listing virtually every time; and how to really achieve financial freedom.

Author: J.J. Anselmi Narrator: Adam Lofbomm Release Date: March 2020

Doomed to Fail explores the heaviest music the world has ever heard, tracing doom, sludge, and post-metal as their own distinct (and incredibly loud) traditions. Anselmi covers the bands and musicians that have impacted those styles most-Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Melvins, Eyehategod, Godflesh, Neurosis, Saint Vitus, and many others-while diving into the cultural doom that has spawned such music, from the bombing of Birmingham and hurricane devastation of New Orleans to glaring economic inequality, industrial alienation, climate change, and widespread addiction. Along the way, Anselmi interweaves the musical experiences that have led him to proudly identify as one of the doomed.

Forgive for Love: The Missing Ingredient for a Healthy and  Lasting Relationship Audiobook

Forgive for Love: The Missing Ingredient for a Healthy and Lasting Relationship

Author: Dr. Fred Luskin Narrator: Adam Lofbomm Release Date: February 2020

Finding the love of your life and holding onto that relationship is more difficult than ever. The problem hasn't gone unnoticed. From relationship therapists to speed-dating, self-help books to online matchmaking, an entire industry has developed to help us navigate the bumpy road of relationships. Yet in spite of the availability of all these resources, many of us still struggle to discover and keep the love of our lives. That is, until now. This groundbreaking book from the frontiers of psychology offers startling new research about the one missing factor that is vital to relationships-forgiveness. A national bestselling author and leading expert on forgiveness, Dr. Fred Luskin shows that no matter how much two people may love each other, their relationship will not succeed unless they practice forgiveness-an approach that most relationship experts continue to ignore. Why is forgiveness an essential tool for relationships? Studies reveal that 70 percent for what we argue about at the beginning of our relationships will never be fully resolved. In other words, our basic needs and behaviors don't change over time. The issues are endless: the socks that always end up on the floor, how often to have sex, and, of course, friends and family. Without forgiveness, these issues too easily turn into relationship-eroding grudges.

The Artist in the Machine: The World of AI-Powered Creativity Audiobook

The Artist in the Machine: The World of AI-Powered Creativity

Author: Arthur I. Miller Narrator: Adam Lofbomm Release Date: January 2020

Today's computers are composing music that sounds 'more Bach than Bach,' turning photographs into paintings in the style of Van Gogh's Starry Night, and even writing screenplays. But are computers truly creative-or are they merely tools to be used by musicians, artists, and writers? Miller, an authority on creativity, identifies the key factors essential to the creative process, from 'the need for introspection' to 'the ability to discover the key problem.' He talks to people on the cutting edge of artificial intelligence, encountering computers that mimic the brain and machines that have defeated champions in chess, Jeopardy!, and Go. In the central part of the book, Miller explores the riches of computer-created art, introducing us to artists and computer scientists who have, among much else, unleashed an artificial neural network to create a nightmarish, multi-eyed dog-cat; taught AI to imagine; developed a robot that paints; created algorithms for poetry; and produced the world's first computer-composed musical. But, Miller writes, in order to be truly creative, machines will need to step into the world. He probes the nature of consciousness and speaks to researchers trying to develop emotions and consciousness in computers. Miller argues that computers can already be as creative as humans-and someday will surpass us.

The Outdoor Citizen: Get Out, Give Back, Get Active Audiobook

The Outdoor Citizen: Get Out, Give Back, Get Active

Author: John Judge Narrator: Adam Lofbomm Release Date: January 2020

A groundbreaking volume from the president and CEO of the Appalachian Mountain Club makes the profound argument that to preserve the environment, a revolution must take place in which every person becomes a champion for nature and the outdoors. In The Outdoor Citizen, John Judge coins the term 'the outdoor citizen' delivering his remarkably persuasive argument that we must all become citizens of the natural world, owning and instilling in the next generation a keen interest in the outdoors and reconnecting with life's most essential foundation: nature. Over the next quarter century more than three billion people will join the middle class in the developing world at a rate of 140 to 170 million annually. This new group of consumers will demand more goods and services and use prodigious amounts of energy. This could lead to a ten-fold increase in carbon emissions and devastating, irreversible effects on the earth. Through The Outdoor Citizen, there is, at last, an easy-to-follow plan for all people to contribute to the cause of preserving the environment. It is also a call to action to commit to an active outdoor lifestyle and make the outdoors an epicenter for our communities. It is a game-changer for saving our environment and an entry point into a world of healthier and happier people.
