101 Skills You Need to Survive in the Woods: The Most Effective Wilderness Know-How on Fire-Making,

Author: Kevin Estela Narrator: Matthew Boston Release Date: June 2020

'Feeder' mind-set means being in control of a situation, proactive rather than reactive. It is an optimistic outlook that reframes any situation as a learning experience. Kevin Estela teaches survival skills from this feeder-based perspective, which is what separates his teaching style from other wilderness instructors. Kevin has written the quintessential guide for an outdoor enthusiast's 'bucket list' of skills-how to make a fire, build a shelter, gather food, find water, use a knife correctly, and make cordage. These skills will keep you safe and better prepare you to deal with emergencies in the field, when you'll need the additional skills of signaling and communication, navigation, and crisis first aid taught in this book. Each chapter concludes with more advanced techniques to build your skills in various challenging situations, with tips that even seasoned survival enthusiasts haven't thought of. 101 Skills You Need to Survive in the Woods is a lifetime reference you will turn to over and over again. It will become the first thing you pack for any adventure and just might save your-or someone else's-life.

Bitter Pills: The Global War on Counterfeit Drugs Audiobook

Bitter Pills: The Global War on Counterfeit Drugs

Author: Muhammad H. Zaman Narrator: Matthew Boston Release Date: August 2018

The explosion of Internet commerce, coupled with globalization and increased pharmaceutical use, has led to an unprecedented vulnerability in the U.S. drug supply. Today, an estimated 80% of our drugs are manufactured overseas, mostly in India and China. Every link along this supply chain offers an opportunity for counterfeiters, and increasingly, they are breaking in. In 2008, fake doses of the blood thinner Heparin killed 81 people worldwide. In 2012, a counterfeit version of the cancer drug Avastin, containing no active chemotherapy ingredient, was widely distributed in the United States. In early 2013, a drug trafficker was sentenced to prison for distributing an assortment of counterfeit, Chinese-made pharmaceuticals across America. By the time he was arrested, he had already sold over 140,000 fake pills to customers. Even when the U.S. system works, consumers are increasingly circumventing the safeguards. Skyrocketing health care costs in the U.S. have forced more Americans to become "medical tourists" seeking drugs, life-saving treatments, and transplants abroad, sometimes in countries with rampant counterfeit drug problems and no FDA. Bitter Pills will heighten the public's awareness about counterfeit drugs, critically examine possible solutions, and help people protect themselves.

Blockchain Basics: A Non-Technical Introduction in 25 Steps

Author: Daniel Drescher Narrator: Matthew Boston Release Date: May 2020

In twenty-five concise steps, you will learn the basics of blockchain technology. No mathematical formulas, program code, or computer science jargon are used.

It does so by explaining both the technical concepts that make up the blockchain and their role in business-relevant applications. What you'll learn: what the blockchain is; why it is needed and what problem it solves; why there is so much excitement about the blockchain and its potential; major components and their purpose; how various components of the blockchain work and interact; limitations, why they exist, and what has been done to overcome them; and major application scenarios. Who this book is for: Everyone who wants to get a general idea of what blockchain technology is, how it works, and how it will potentially change the financial system as we know it.

Family Secrets: The Case That Crippled the Chicago Mob Audiobook

Family Secrets: The Case That Crippled the Chicago Mob

Author: Jeff Coen Narrator: Matthew Boston Release Date: November 2017

Even in Chicago, a city steeped in mob history and legend, the Family Secrets case was a true spectacle when it made it to court in 2007. A top mob boss, a reputed consigliere, and other high-profile members of the Chicago Outfit were accused in a total of eighteen gangland killings, revealing organized crime's ruthless grip on the city throughout the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Painting a vivid picture of murder, courtroom drama, family loyalties and disloyalties, journalist Jeff Coen accurately portrays the Chicago Outfit's cold-blooded-and sometimes incompetent-killers and their crimes in the case that brought them down. In 1998 Frank Calabrese Jr. volunteered to wear a wire to gather evidence against his father, a vicious loan shark who strangled most of his victims with a rope before slitting their throats to ensure they were dead. Frank Jr. went after his uncle Nick as well, a calculating but sometimes bumbling hit man who would become one of the highest-ranking turncoats in mob history, admitting he helped strangle, stab, shoot, and bomb victims who got in the mob's way, and turning evidence against his brother Frank.
