The Raptor of the Highlands Audiobook

The Raptor of the Highlands

Author: Peter Wacht Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: September 2020

Light dances with dark, green fire burns in the night, hopes and dreams follow the wind, to fall in black or white. The prophecy spoke of Thomas Kestrel: outcast, lord, sorcerer, warrior, and perhaps savior of the Kingdoms-if he survives. In The Raptor of the Highlands, the third book in The Sylvan Chronicles, Thomas realizes more fully the devastation of his people. Imprisoned but not defeated, he befriends Oso, a Highlander who helps him escape the mines. Clashing with the High King's reivers and destroying their prison, he and Oso begin to infuse hope once more in the people of his homeland.

Evolution: What Everyone Needs to Know Audiobook

Evolution: What Everyone Needs to Know

Author: Robin Dunbar Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: August 2020

Evolution is one of the most important processes in life. It not only explains the detailed history of life on earth, but its scope also extends into many aspects of our own contemporary behavior-who we are and how we got to be here, our psychology, our cultures-and greatly impacts modern advancements in medicine and conservation biology. Perhaps its most important claim for science is its ability to provide an overarching framework that integrates the many life sciences into a single unified whole. Yet, evolution-evolutionary biology in particular-has been, and continues to be, regarded with suspicion by many. Understanding how and why evolution works, and what it can tell us, is perhaps the single most important contribution to the public perception of science. In this book, Robin Dunbar uses examples drawn from plant life, animals, and humans to illustrate these processes. Evolutionary science has important advantages. Most of science deals with the microscopic world that we cannot see and invariably have difficulty understanding, but evolution deals with the macro-world in which we live and move. That invariably makes it much easier for the lay audience to appreciate, understand, and enjoy.

The Call of the Sylvana

Author: Peter Wacht Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: August 2020

Light dances with dark, green fire burns in the night, hopes and dreams follow the wind, to fall in black or white. The prophecy spoke of Thomas Kestrel: outcast, lord, sorcerer, warrior, and perhaps savior of the Kingdoms-if he survives. In The Call of the Sylvana, the second book in The Sylvan Chronicles, Thomas Kestrel returns to his ancestral Highlands in an ill-fated attempt to help the people who feared him as a child. With the help of the Sylvana, men and women dedicated to protecting the Kingdoms from the Shadow Lord and the Dark Horde, Thomas bears the burden of returning to the Highlands to reclaim his proper place. Befriended by a Highlander who would die for him, struggling with his love for a princess who will betray him, Thomas tries to piece together the puzzle of his life-while the High King's assassins, aided by the minions of the Shadow Lord, pursue him. Can he prevent the Dark Horde from descending on the Kingdoms and extinguishing the light forever?

Kompromat: My Story from Trump to Mueller and USSR to USA Audiobook

Kompromat: My Story from Trump to Mueller and USSR to USA

Author: Giorgi Rtskhiladze Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: July 2020

In April of 2018, Giorgi Rtskhiladze answered the door of his Connecticut home to find two FBI agents bearing a subpoena waiting for him. Their questions: What was his interaction with Donald Trump, the Trump family, and the Trump Organization? What did he know about Michael Cohen's business dealings? Why was he the person who Cohen had a text conversation with about the possibility of damaging tapes of Donald Trump from Russia? Though he and his family were stunned that the agents came to their home at night, instead of asking him to come in for an interview, news broke-and Giorgi found himself in the middle of a media maelstrom, as well as in the midst of one of the most salacious pieces of evidence which in part triggered the Mueller investigation. This is Giorgi's story of growing up in Soviet Georgia, emigrating to the US, and his dealings with Donald Trump. All of this culminating in his disillusion with the Justice Department, special counsel Mueller, Adam Schiff, and the American media after his subpoena-and the journey through the criminal justice system that ensued.

Exogenesis: Hybrid Humans: A Scientific History of Extraterrestrial Genetic Manipulation Audiobook

Exogenesis: Hybrid Humans: A Scientific History of Extraterrestrial Genetic Manipulation

Author: Bruce R. Fenton, Daniella Fenton Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: June 2020

Exogenesis: the hypothesis that life originated elsewhere in the universe and was spread to Earth. Exogenesis: Hybrid Humans offers a deep dive into the strongest ever scientific evidence that supports the popular belief that Earth has been visited in prehistory, but goes even further, concluding that there is also compelling evidence of alien involvement with the human genome. The broader history of possible extraterrestrial contact is explored alongside a look at current events in the subject of alien disclosure with the result of highlighting evidence of a contact continuum that has continued since the dawn of humanity. The data brought together suggests that the next stage in human evolution may involve the manifestation of full open contact with the visitors in our lifetimes. Exogenesis: Hybrid Humans explores: ● An ancient sacred Aboriginal artifact ● Wreckage from a huge colony ship gets identified along with associated NASA studies concluding it is a material found in only one place on Earth ● Genetic engineering of Homo sapiens from an early hominin species is confirmed with a lengthy list of DNA anomalies only explainable by humans being an alien 'hybrid' creation ● And more

The World's Most Prestigious Prize: The Inside Story of the Nobel Peace Prize Audiobook

The World's Most Prestigious Prize: The Inside Story of the Nobel Peace Prize

Author: Geir Lundestad Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: June 2020

The World's Most Prestigious Prize: The Inside Story of the Nobel Peace Prize is a fascinating, insider account of the Nobel Peace Prize. Drawing on unprecedented access to the Norwegian Nobel Institute's vast archive, it offers a gripping account of the founding of the prize, as well as its highs and lows, triumphs and disasters, over the last one-hundred-and-twenty years. But more than that, the book also draws on the author's unique insight during his twenty-five years as director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute and secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee. It reveals the real story of all the laureates of that period-some of them among the most controversial in the history of the prize (Gorbachev, Arafat, Peres and Rabin, Mandela and De Klerk, Obama, and Liu Xiaobo)-and exactly why they came to receive the prize. Despite all that has been written about the Nobel Peace Prize, this is the first-ever account written by a prominent insider in the Nobel system.

Topology: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Topology: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Richard Earl Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: June 2020

How is a subway map different from other maps? What makes a knot knotted? What makes the Möbius strip one-sided? These are questions of topology, the mathematical study of properties preserved by twisting or stretching objects. In the 20th century topology became as broad and fundamental as algebra and geometry, with important implications for science, especially physics. In this Very Short Introduction, Richard Earl gives a sense of the more visual elements of topology (looking at surfaces) as well as covering the formal definition of continuity. Considering some of the eye-opening examples that led mathematicians to recognize a need for studying topology, he pays homage to the historical people, problems, and surprises that have propelled the growth of this field.

Night of the Bayonets: The Texel Uprising and Hitler's Revenge, April-May 1945 Audiobook

Night of the Bayonets: The Texel Uprising and Hitler's Revenge, April-May 1945

Author: Eric Lee Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: May 2020

In the final days of World War II in Europe, Georgians serving in the Wehrmacht on Texel island off the Dutch coast rose up and slaughtered their German masters. Hitler ordered the island to be retaken and fighting continued for weeks, well after the war's end. The uprising had it origins in the bloody history of Georgia in the twentieth century, a history that saw the country move from German occupation, to three short years of independence, to Soviet rule after it was conquered by the Red Army in 1921. A bloody rebellion against the Soviets took place in 1924, but it remained under Russian Soviet rule. Thousands of Georgians served in the Soviet forces during World War II and among those who were captured, given the choice of 'starve or fight', some took up the German offer to don Wehrmacht uniforms. The loyalty of the Georgians was always in doubt, as Hitler himself suspected, and once deployed to the Netherlands, the Georgian soldiers made contact with the local Communist resistance. When the opportunity arose, the Georgians took the decision to rise up and slaughter the Germans, seizing control of the island. In just a few hours, they massacred some 400 German officers using knives and bayonets to avoid raising the alarm.

Collaborative Society Audiobook

Collaborative Society

Author: Aleksandra Przegalinska, Dariusz Jemielniak Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: March 2020

Humans are hard-wired for collaboration, and new technologies of communication act as a super-amplifier of our natural collaborative mindset. This volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series examines the emergence of a new kind of social collaboration enabled by networked technologies. This new collaborative society might be characterized as a series of services and startups that enable peer-to-peer exchanges and interactions though technology. Some believe that the economic aspects of the new collaboration have the potential to make society more equitable; others see collaborative communities based on sharing as a cover for social injustice and user exploitation. The book covers the 'sharing economy,' and the hijacking of the term by corporations; different models of peer production, and motivations to participate; collaborative media production and consumption, the definitions of 'amateur' and 'professional,' and the power of memes; hactivism and social movements, including Anonymous and anti-ACTA protest; collaborative knowledge creation, including citizen science; collaborative self-tracking; and internet-mediated social relations, as seen in the use of Instagram, Snapchat, and Tinder. Finally, the book considers the future of these collaborative tendencies and the disruptions caused by fake news, bots, and other challenges.
