Unearthed: On race and roots, and how the soil taught me I belong Audiobook

Unearthed: On race and roots, and how the soil taught me I belong

Author: Claire Ratinon Narrator: Claire Ratinon Release Date: June 2022

Brought to you by Penguin. 'When we speak of our origins, that which made us, we speak of our roots. We acknowledge how our identities are intertwined with land, whether it's the one we are standing on or another we lay claim to.' Unearthed is the story of how Claire Ratinon found belonging through falling in love with growing plants. For years her troubled relationship with the land of her birth left her feeling unwanted, but reconnecting with nature allowed her finally to put down roots. Like many diasporic people of colour, Claire grew up feeling cut off from the natural world. She lived in cities, reluctant to be outdoors and stuck with the belief that success and status could fill the space where belonging was absent. Through learning the practice of growing food, she unpicked her beliefs about who she ought to be. Over her first year living in the English countryside and with the first vegetable patch of her own, she finds a pathway back to nature's embrace. And through growing the food of Mauritius, recording her parents' stories and exploring the history of the island, she also strengthens her connection to her homeland. A beautiful work of nature-writing, memoir and storytelling, Unearthed urges us to look to the world outside for the belonging and home we seek. It is a heartfelt call to reconsider our history, the way we think about nature and the complex relationships we all have with the land. © Claire Ratinon 2022 (P) Penguin Audio 2022

I'll Die After Bingo: The Unlikely Story of My Decade as a Care Home Assistant Audiobook

I'll Die After Bingo: The Unlikely Story of My Decade as a Care Home Assistant

Author: Pope Lonergan Narrator: Pope Lonergan Release Date: June 2022

Brought to you by Penguin. Resident: I feel I want to keep talking. Me: Of course! What do you want to talk about? Resident: My heart. Me: What about your heart? Resident: I feel I want to touch it. Me: Your heart? You want to touch your heart? Resident: Yes, but I'm too frightened. Me: What are you frightened about? Resident: Everything. People. Things. Me: What's frightening you at this very moment? Resident: (Closes eyes). That I'll never be touched again. That I won't be able to get to my heart. Me: Metaphorically? Resident: More carrots please. Whether he's initiating a coup d'état against new regulations with the residents, or forging a bond with the 98-year old who once called him a fat slut, Pope Lonergan's work is infinitely varied. This no-holds-barred account shows what life inside a care home is really like, for both residents and carers. Featuring night-time drama, incontinence pads and the uniquely dark humour of one double-amputee Alzheimer's patient, here you can learn everything you ever wanted to know (and a few things you probably really didn't) about Britain's care system. This important memoir challenges us all to think differently about the value of our elderly, and also the carers who look after them. 'From fearless and funny to heart-stoppingly raw' Evening Standard © Pope Lonergan 2022 (P) Penguin Audio 2022

Where You'll Find Me: Risk, Decisions, and the Last Climb of Kate Matrosova Audiobook

Where You'll Find Me: Risk, Decisions, and the Last Climb of Kate Matrosova

Author: Ty Gagne Narrator: Lee Goettl Release Date: June 2022

On February 15, 2015, Kate Matrosova, an avid mountaineer, set off before sunrise for a traverse of the Northern Presidential Range in New Hampshire's White Mountains. Late the following day, rescuers carried her frozen body out of the mountains amid some of the worst weather ever recorded on these deceptively rugged slopes. At thirty-two, Matrosova was ultra-fit and healthy and had already summited much larger mountains on several continents. Her gear included a rescue beacon and a satellite phone. Yet, despite their best efforts, more than forty expert search and rescue personnel, a New Hampshire Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter, and a Civil Air Patrol Cessna airplane could not reach her in time to save her. What went wrong? Where You'll Find Me offers possible answers to that question, demonstrating why Matrosova's story-what we know and what we will never know-represents such an intriguing and informative case study in risk analysis and decision-making.

The Sky Is for Everyone: Women Astronomers in Their Own Words Audiobook

The Sky Is for Everyone: Women Astronomers in Their Own Words

Author: Tbd Narrator: Kaliswa Brewster, Kate Harper, Katherine Fenton, Marnie Chesterton, Pooneh Ghoddoosi Release Date: June 2022

This inspiring audiobook shares the stories of trailblazing women astronomers from around the globe Features a prelude, chapter introductions, and postlude read by Kaliswa Brewster With additional narration by Marnie Chesterton, Katherine Fenton, Pooneh Ghoddoosi, and Kate Harper The Sky Is for Everyone is an internationally diverse collection of autobiographical narratives by women who broke down barriers and changed the face of modern astronomy. This audiobook vividly describes how, before 1900, a woman who wanted to study the stars had to have a father, brother, or husband to provide entry, and how the considerable intellectual skills of women astronomers were still not enough to enable them to pry open doors of opportunity for much of the twentieth century. After decades of difficult struggles, women are closer to equality in astronomy than ever before. Here are the stories of the tough and determined women who flung the doors wide open. Taking readers from 1960 to today, this triumphant anthology serves as an inspiration to current and future generations of women scientists while giving voice to the history of a transformative era in astronomy. With contributions by Neta Bahcall, Beatriz Barbuy, Ann Merchant Boesgaard, Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Catherine Cesarsky, Poonam Chandra, Xuefei Chen, Yilen Gómez Maqueo Chew, Cathie Clarke, Judith Gamora Cohen, France Anne Córdova, Anne Pyne Cowley, Bożena Czerny, Wendy L.

The Reluctant Carer: Dispatches from the Edge of Life Audiobook

The Reluctant Carer: Dispatches from the Edge of Life

Author: The Reluctant Carer Narrator: William Andrews Release Date: June 2022

'Incredible. One of those rare books that should be dispensed on prescription to every household.' - Lucy Easthope, author of When the Dust Settles 'Hilarious, bitter, poignant and profound . . . like an existential soap opera - only with more laughs.' - Philip Hoare, author of Leviathan It was the kind of phone call we all dread. Your elderly father has been admitted to hospital. Your even older mum is now at home alone. The answer? Simple. Drop everything, go back and help. The reality? Not so straightforward. Suddenly, you’re a kid again, stranded in the overheated house you grew up in. Soon they need you 24/7. And you want to help, of course you do. But now your own life starts to unravel almost as quickly as their health. And then there is nowhere else to go. In between bouts of washing, feeding, cooking and fighting there are times that test you, days where everything goes wrong and moments when everyone, miraculously rises to the occasion. And amidst all of that, this strange second childhood offers up a shot at redemption - if you can just stop everyone from falling down. Irresistibly funny, unflinching and deeply moving, this is a love letter to family and friends, to carers and to anyone who has ever packed a small bag intent on staying for just a few days. This is a true story of what it really means to be a carer, and of the ties that bind even tighter when you least expect it. This is The Reluctant Carer.

Heavy Metal: The Hard Days and Nights of the Shipyard Workers Who Build America's Supercarriers Audiobook

Heavy Metal: The Hard Days and Nights of the Shipyard Workers Who Build America's Supercarriers

Author: Michael Fabey Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: June 2022

An extraordinary story of American can-do, an inside look at the building of the most dangerous aircraft carrier in the world, the John F. Kennedy. Tip the Empire State Building onto its side and you’ll have a sense of the length of the United States Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, the most powerful in the world: the USS John F. Kennedy. Weighing 100,000 tons, Kennedy features the most futuristic technology ever put to sea, making it the most agile and lethal global weapon of war. Only one place possesses the brawn, brains and brass to transform naval warfare with such a creation – the Newport News Shipbuilding yard in Virginia and its 30,000 employees and shipyard workers. This is their story, the riggers, fitters, welders, electricians, machinists and other steelworkers who built the next-generation aircraft carrier.  Heavy Metal puts us on the waterfront and into the lives of these men and women as they battle layoffs, the elements, impossible deadlines, extraordinary pressure, workplace dangers and a pandemic to complete a ship that will be essential to protect America’s way of life. The city of Newport News owes its very existence to the company that bears its name. The shipyard dominates the town—physically, politically, financially, socially, and culturally. Thanks to the yard, the city grew from a backwater to be the home of the premier naval contractor in the United States. Heavy Metal captures an indelible moment in the history of a shipyard, a city, and a country. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

Power Density: A Key to Understanding Energy Sources and Uses Audiobook

Power Density: A Key to Understanding Energy Sources and Uses

Author: Vaclav Smil Narrator: Daniel Henning Release Date: June 2022

In this book, Vaclav Smil argues that power density is a key determinant of the nature and dynamics of energy systems. Any understanding of complex energy systems must rely on quantitative measures of many fundamental variables. Power density-the rate of energy flux per unit of area-is an important but largely overlooked measure. Smil provides the first systematic, quantitative appraisal of power density, offering detailed reviews of the power densities of renewable energy flows, fossil fuels, thermal electricity generation, and all common energy uses. Smil shows that careful quantification, critical appraisals, and revealing comparisons of power densities make possible a deeper understanding of the ways we harness, convert, and use energies. Conscientious assessment of power densities, he argues, proves particularly revealing when contrasting the fossil fuel-based energy system with renewable energy conversions. Smil explains that modern civilization has evolved as a direct expression of the high power densities of fossil fuel extraction. He argues that our inevitable move to new energy arrangements involving conversions of lower-density renewable energy sources will require our society-currently dominated by megacities and concentrated industrial production-to undergo a profound spatial restructuring of its energy system.

Human-Centered Leadership in Healthcare Audiobook

Human-Centered Leadership in Healthcare

Author: Kay Kennedy, Lucy Leclerc, Susan Campis Narrator: Sara Sheckells Release Date: June 2022

Human-Centered Leadership in Healthcare is a new leadership model based on the theory of complex systems. It addresses the requirement for healthcare organizations to develop environments that produce market leading outcomes which demonstrate value for patients. Since healthcare is a human-centric industry, it requires care for the leaders, the staff, and the patients. The Human-Centered Leadership model embraces the leader's focus on self-care and mindfulness while simultaneously focusing outward on others. The leader, at the center, adopts the attributes of the Awakener, the Connector, and the Upholder which result in practices leading to sustained quality outcomes, patient, and staff satisfaction, and a healthy work environment. These practices and outcomes can be described as cultures of excellence, trust, and caring. The Human-Centered Leader in Healthcare understands that 'It starts with you but it's not about you'. Kay Kennedy, Lucy Leclerc, and Susan P. Campis's goal for Human-Centered Leadership in Healthcare is to develop the people who lead the people who care for the people.

Contra el futuro: Resistencia ciudadana frente al feudalismo climático Audiobook

Contra el futuro: Resistencia ciudadana frente al feudalismo climático

Author: Marta Peirano Narrator: Marta Moreno Release Date: June 2022

Tras advertirnos de los peligros de internet, vuelve Marta Peirano con un nuevo relato antiapocalíptico para construir un futuro esperanzador. Es la historia más vieja del mundo: la de un desastre medioambiental y una tecnología que nos salva. La hemos repetido como un mantra desde el principio de los tiempos porque hasta ahora se ha revelado cierta; somos el animal más peligroso de la sabana, hemos vencido a las bestias, a las tormentas y a la enfermedad. Pero la estrategia evolutiva que nos ha mantenido vivos desde el principio de la misma vida nos empuja ahora al borde de la extinción. Estamos tan atrapados que ya nos parece inevitable. No es un problema técnico. Hay soluciones a nuestro alcance para frenar el calentamiento global. Pero las grandes tecnologías de nuestro tiempo no pueden ayudarnos a gestionar la crisis climática, porque no están diseñadas para ello, sino para gestionarnos a nosotros durante la crisis climática. Este libro habla de las estrategias de acción ciudadana para hacer frente a la aceleración del feudalismo climático y el capitalismo desastre. Un nuevo relato antiapocalíptico para construir un futuro esperanzador. La crítica ha dicho: «Una de las raras periodistas que realmente se ha especializado en la intersección de la tecnología y el poder». Edward Snowden «Marta Peirano es una de las voces más respetadas en nuestro país sobre privacidad y seguridad en internet». Manuel Ángel Méndez, El Confidencial «Marta Peirano es una incitadora a la resistencia ciudadana. Es la única periodista que analiza la relación entre la Tecnología y el Poder». Mamen Mendizábal
