Sixth-Grade Alien: I Shrank My Teacher Audiobook

Sixth-Grade Alien: I Shrank My Teacher

Author: Bruce Coville Narrator: William Dufris Release Date: March 2021

Pleskit Meenom, the first alien to go to school on Earth, is starting to fit in with his new class. It's not easy, given how slippery the language is. (Just how many meanings does the word "cool" have, anyway?) But the biggest problem is Jordan Lynch, the class bully who just can't resist picking on the new kid. Finally Pleskit and his new best friend, Tim Tompkins, decide to take action. But taking action when you have alien technology at your disposal can mean taking things just a little too far . . . and we do mean little! This hilarious mix of comedy, alien adventure, and social satire is enhanced by a brilliant reading from the late, great William Dufris (the original American voice of Bob the Builder), which School Library Journal said, "makes the recording a hoot!"

The Poetry of Hymns Audiobook

The Poetry of Hymns

Author: Ann Griffiths, James Thomson, John Donne Narrator: Daniela Nardini, Richard Mitchley, William Dufris Release Date: January 2021

Through the centuries in the solace of a church we hear music. These soaring vaulted often beautiful pieces of architecture have borne witness to hymns that change our emotions and fortify our spirit through life, death and celebrations and memorials of every type in between. Whether you are of a Christian faith or not, it is difficult to deny that these hymns create something stirring something magical which shouldn't be surprising when you hear the original poems. They speak with clarity and purpose, uplifting the heart and the soul, rejoicing God's work and man's pledge to do better in His eyes. But Hymns also have a wider duty to perform as there are many facets, themes and help on how to live lives as ourselves and appreciate each other as well as nature. In listening each of us can be swayed and persuaded on a number of levels.However many poets have called their work 'a Hymn' and have explored its theme and its definition, in different ways. They can be more irreverent and suggest that hymns can come not from churches but other places - even watermelon pavilions.One of the purposes of poems, of verse, of words, is to bring a subject into our view, imbue it with a little understanding and perhaps help us to confirm our opinions or hear in a way we might not have originally thought of it. Seeing and hearing through others can be a way to find more complex ripples of knowledge or to challenge what we hold and adjust that thinking.In this volume we bring you a wide range of Hymns from the religious and the devotional to the humane and the wonderful.

Pandemic! The Unseen Enemy Audiobook

Pandemic! The Unseen Enemy

Nature is always on the move. Evolution over untold generations moves, streamlines, sometimes mutates.Since the dawn of life there is little doubt that at any given time disease can strike, slowly growing over time or with a sudden instant ferocity that catches any given species in a consuming catastrophe.The human race has been on the receiving end of many viral and bacterial diseases from the Black Death, to smallpox, polio and a myriad of others that have slaughtered millions in their trail. And as medicine brings them to heel, eradicates their power, so Nature and Evolution brings others to the fore in a ceaseless march to weaken some, to strengthen others.And, as our race understands their mysteries so we begin to weaponize them for our own malevolent use as biological weapons. The movement of the Global Pandemic in the modern age is overwhelmingly quick both in reach and transmission. Covid merely the front runner in the early years of this Century.Authors have always been drawn to this global scale and individual human response. In this collection virus and plague are given their head and the responses must see cure or capitulation within a few short pages.Edgar Allan Poe, Jack London, Fred M White and H G Wells unleash words and thoughts in four startling tales of war with an unseen enemy.

An Hour of Nature Poems - Volume 1 Audiobook

An Hour of Nature Poems - Volume 1

Silence is rare in Nature.When we really listen, Nature is conducting symphonies of sound as her world goes about the day and night. Her invisible heartbeat is everywhere, for everyone.Our eyes are constantly bathed in the wonder of her ways, the soft drizzle of rain from soft grey clouds, the bleached harsh desert sand of a noon day, a wave caressing the shore, to the ravenous colours of a departing sunset. Indeed, whenever we look and listen to the vastness of our world Nature's beauty is always there for us. She placates our anger, soothes our pain. Her vistas feed our hearts and souls; the world of a single flower brings a smile.In these 60 minutes nature takes us through her world of wonder.

Social TV: How Marketers Can Reach and Engage Audiences by Connecting Television to the Web, Social  Audiobook

Social TV: How Marketers Can Reach and Engage Audiences by Connecting Television to the Web, Social

Author: Mike Proulx, Stacey Shepatin Narrator: William Dufris Release Date: July 2020

TV consumption is on the rise, but consumers are viewing and experiencing TV in a vastly different way than they were even 5 years ago.  TV viewership has radically transformed from a passive experience to a more engaged, interactive, and on-demand experience. Content producers will not only have to continue to create quality entertainment products, but they will now need to consider ways to a) enhance the viewing experience, b) leverage social media to promote their properties, and c) distribute their content across multiple platforms. Trends in TV Consumption:   Digital recording devices have allowed for consumers to time shift. At the end of 2010, 38% percent of all U.S. TV households had a DVR; however, those viewers are still watching commercials. Nielsen also found that in DVR homes, playback actually improves commercial ratings by 44% among 18-49s after three days. People are watching full-length videos on computers. In Jan. 2011 143.9 million Americans viewed videos online (Source:Nielsen). Furthermore, eMarketer reports that a full third of U.S. adult Internet users watch full-length TV shows online. Third-screen viewing via mobile devices is on the rise. Consumers are viewing more of their favorite shows from mobile devices, such as phones and tablets a habit that has increased 41% year-over-year. The majority users of mobile video are teens, clocking in more than seven hours a month on average. Multi-screen viewing is also on the rise. Per a recent Nielsen study,70 percent of tablet owners and 68 percent of smartphone owners said they use their devices while watching television.  In another study from late 2010, 86% of mobile Internet users said they were using their devices while watching TV (Source: Nielsen/Yahoo). What are people doing while interacting with these devices during TV shows? Nielsen/Yahoo found that a third were using mobile apps, 37% were browsing the web, 40% were engaging via social networks and 56% were texting with a friend or family member. Examples of how companies are responding: Old Navy partnered with music tagging app Shazam to make their commercials more interactive.  Consumers who tag the commercial as it airs are driven to a custom experience where they can download music, learn more about the clothes, get coupons, and more. Wheat Thins thrust unexpected Twitter users (who happened to tweet about their product) into the starring role of their TV commercials. Their ad shows a Wheat Thins team delivering a truckload of crackers to this unsuspecting fan who mentioned they ran out of their product in a tweet USA Network recently launched Chatter app, which lets viewers talk to other fans and engage with content from several social channels while viewing the show.

An Odyssey of the North Audiobook

An Odyssey of the North

Author: Jack London Narrator: William Dufris Release Date: January 2020

John Griffith Chaney was born on January 12th, 1876 in San Francisco. His father, William Chaney, was living with Flora Wellman, when she became pregnant. Chaney insisted she have an abortion. Flora's response was to turn a gun on herself. Although her wounds were not severe the trauma made her temporarily deranged.In late 1876 his mother married John London and the young child was brought to live with them as they moved around the Bay area, eventually settling in Oakland where, now calling himself ‘Jack’, he completed grade school.Jack worked hard at several jobs, sometimes for 12-18 hours a day, but his dream was university. He studied hard and borrowed the money to enroll, in the summer of 1896, at the University of California in Berkeley.In 1897, at 21, Jack searched out newspaper accounts of his mother's suicide attempt and for the name of his biological father. He wrote to Chaney, then living in Chicago who claimed he could not be Jack’s father because he was impotent; and casually asserted that London's mother had relations with other men. Jack, devastated by the response, quit Berkeley and went to the Klondike. Other accounts suggest that his dire finances presented Jack with the excuse he needed to leave.In the Klondike Jack began to gather material for his writing but also began to accumulate several health problems, including scurvy, which together with hip and leg problems, he would then carry for the rest of his life.During the late 1890's Jack was regularly publishing short stories and, by the turn of the century, full-blown novels.By 1904 Jack had married, fathered two children and was now in the process of divorcing. A stint as a reporter on the Russo-Japanese war of 1904 was equal amounts trouble and experience. But that experience was always put to good use in a continuing and remarkable output of work.In 1905 he married Charmian Kittredge, who at last was a soul and companion who brought him some semblance of peace despite his advancing alcoholism and his incurable wanderlust.Twelve years later Jack had amassed both wealth and a literary reputation through such classics as ‘The Call of the Wild’ and ‘White Fang’ and many others. He had a reputation as a social activist and was a tireless friend of the workers. Jack London died, suffering from dysentery, late-stage alcoholism, and uremia, aged only 40, on November 22nd, 1916 at his property in Glen Ellen, California.

Lee: A Life of Virtue Audiobook

Lee: A Life of Virtue

Author: John Perry Narrator: William Dufris Release Date: October 2019

Traitor. Divider. Defender of slavery. This damning portrayal of Robert E. Lee has persisted through 150 years of history books. And yet it has no basis in fact.In the spirit of bold restoration, Lee: A Life of Virtue reveals the true Leeùpassionate patriot, caring son, devoted husband, doting father, donÆt-tread-on-me Virginian, Godfearing Christian.Weaving forgotten facts and revelations (Lee considered slavery a moral outrage) with striking personal details (for years he carried his weakened mother to and from her carriage), biographer John Perry crafts a compelling treatment of the virtuous warrior who endured withering opposition and sacrificed all to stand for Constitutional freedoms.
