DeFi and the Future of Finance Audiobook

DeFi and the Future of Finance

Author: Ashwin Ramachandran, Campbell R. Harvey, Joey Santoro Narrator: David De Vries Release Date: September 2021

During the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, our financial infrastructure failed. Govern­ments bailed out the very institutions that let the economy down. This episode spurred a serious rethink of our financial system. In DeFi and the Future of Finance, Campbell R. Harvey, Ashwin Ramachandran, and Joey Santoro introduce the new world of Decen­tralized Finance. The book argues that the current financial landscape is ripe for dis­ruption and we are seeing, in real time, the reinvention of finance. The authors provide listeners with a clear assessment of the problems with the current financial system and how DeFi solves many of its issues. The essence of DeFi is that we interact with peers-there is no brick and mortar and all of the associated costs. Savings and lending are reinvented. Trading takes place with algorithms far re­moved from traditional brokerages. The book conducts a deep dive on some of the most innovative protocols such as Uniswap and Compound. Many of the companies featured in the book you might not have heard of-however, you will in the future.

Cómo evitar un desastre climático: Las soluciones que ya tenemos y los avances que aún necesitamos Audiobook

Cómo evitar un desastre climático: Las soluciones que ya tenemos y los avances que aún necesitamos

Author: Bill Gates Narrator: Roberto Medina Release Date: September 2021

Las soluciones que ya tenemos y los avances que aún necesitamos En este libro urgente y necesario Bill Gates propone un plan amplio, práctico -y comprensible- para conseguir que el mundo llegue a cero emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero para así evitar una catástrofe climática.   Bill Gates ha pasado una década investigando las causas y efectos del cambio climático. Con la ayuda de expertos en los campos de la física, la química, la biología, la ingeniería, las ciencias políticas y las finanzas, se ha centrado en investigar exactamente qué se debe hacer para detener la deriva del planeta hacia un desastre ambiental. En este libro, además de explicar por qué debemos esforzarnos en lograr emisiones netas cero de gases de efecto invernadero, también detalla lo que debemos hacer para lograr este objetivo tan importante.   Gates nos presenta una descripción clara de los desafíos que enfrentamos. A partir de su conocimiento sobre innovación y lo que se requiere para introducir nuevas ideas en el mercado, describe las áreas en las que la tecnología ya está ayudando a reducir las emisiones, dónde y cómo la tecnología actual puede funcionar de manera más eficaz, dónde es necesario desarrollar tecnologías de punta, y quién está trabajando en estas innovaciones esenciales. Finalmente, presenta un plan concreto y práctico para lograr el objetivo de cero emisiones, sugiriendo no solo las políticas que los gobiernos deberían adoptar, sino lo que nosotros, como individuos, podemos hacer para que nuestro gobierno, nuestros empleadores y nosotros mismos nos responsabilicemos esta crucial iniciativa. Como deja claro Bill Gates, llegar a cero emisiones no será sencillo ni fácil, pero si seguimos el plan que aquí propone, es una meta que se encuentra decididamente a nuestro alcance.   "Para detener el calentamiento global y evitar los peores efectos del cambio climático, los humanos deben dejar de agregar gases de efecto invernadero a la atmósfera. Si nada cambia, el mundo seguirá produciendo gases de efecto invernadero, el cambio climático seguirá empeorando y el impacto en los seres humanos con toda probabilidad será catastrófico. Pero las cosas pueden cambiar. Este libro trata sobre lo que se necesitará para lograrlo y por qué estoy convencido de que podemos hacerlo." -- Bill Gates ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Bill Gates shares what he's learned in more than a decade of studying climate change and investing in innovations to address the problems, and sets out a vision for how the world can build the tools it needs to get to zero greenhouse gas emissions. Bill Gates explains why he cares so deeply about climate change and what makes him optimistic that the world can avoid the most dire effects of the climate crisis. Gates says, 'We can work on a local, national, and global level to build the technologies, businesses, and industries to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.' His interest in climate change is a natural outgrowth of the efforts by his foundation to reduce poverty and disease. Climate change, according to Gates, will have the biggest impact on the people who have done the least to cause it. As a technologist, he has seen firsthand how innovation can change the world. By investing in research, inventing new technologies, and by deploying them quickly at large scale, Gates believes climate change can be addressed in meaningful ways. According to Gates, 'to prevent the worst effects of climate change, we have to get to net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases. This problem is urgent, and the debate is complex, but I believe we can come together to invent new carbon-zero technologies, deploy the ones we have, and ultimately avoid a climate catastrophe.'

Plague: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Plague: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Paul Slack Narrator: Gareth Richards Release Date: September 2021

Throughout history plague has been the cause of many major catastrophes. It was responsible for the 'Plague of Justinian' in 542, the Black Death of 1348, and the Great Plague of London in 1665, as well as for devastating epidemics in China and India between the 1890s and 1920s. In the twenty-first century Coronavirus pandemics have served as a powerful reminder that we have not escaped the global impact of epidemic diseases. In this Very Short Introduction, Paul Slack takes a global approach to explore the historical and social impact of plague over the centuries, looking at the ways in which it has been interpreted, and the powerful images it has left behind in art and literature. Examining what plague meant for those who suffered from it, and how governments began to fight against it, he demonstrates the impact plague has had on modern notions of public health, and how it has shaped our history. This new edition also includes evidence on the nature of plague taken from recent discoveries in ancient DNA as well as new research on plague in the Middle East.

Rock Steady: Healing Vertigo or Tinnitus with Neuroplasticity Audiobook

Rock Steady: Healing Vertigo or Tinnitus with Neuroplasticity

Author: Joey Remenyi Narrator: Suehyla El-Attar Release Date: September 2021

Listen within. You are the expert in you. Chronic vertigo, dizziness, and tinnitus are invisible disruptions to a person’s life that can be unresponsive to traditional treatments, leaving sufferers feeling hopeless. Yet healing is possible using neuroplasticity, the brain and body’s capacity to change itself. So, why is nobody teaching us how to do it? Vestibular audiologist and neuroplasticity therapist Joey Remenyi explains why holistic neuroplasticity is often overlooked; why nobody else can prescribe it for you; and why ignoring, denying, distracting, and avoiding symptoms may not work. Joey gives hope to the hopeless with her pioneering self-study approach to healing chronic symptoms that outlines how we can rebuild a new normal with methodical steps. Using client case studies and her own personal experience, Joey guides the listener to gently feel their way through healing—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Including home exercise ideas and a heart-centered approach to the science, Rock Steady is the essential guide for anyone with chronic unwanted sensations or sounds in their body.

Author: Yael Adler Narrator: Yael Adler Release Date: September 2021

So gelingt die Kommunikation mit Ihrem Arzt 'Echte Zuwendung und Vertrauen sind oft wichtiger als High-Tech-Medizin', sagt Yael Adler.

In ihrem neuen Hörbuch zeigt Yael Adler pointiert und anhand zahlreicher Fallgeschichten, welche Typen von Ärzten und Patienten es gibt, wie beide ticken und welche Rollen sie in der Arzt-Patient-Beziehung spielen. Sie verrät, wie eine echte Kommunikation auf Augenhöhe gelingen kann und was es braucht, damit Arzt und Patient zu einem guten und starken Team werden.

The Guide to Ignacio Springs and Guerrero Negro, Baja, Mexico (the Bus, the Rest Stop, the Military  Audiobook

The Guide to Ignacio Springs and Guerrero Negro, Baja, Mexico (the Bus, the Rest Stop, the Military

Author: Pearl Howie Narrator: Pearl Howie Release Date: September 2021

From No. 1 best selling Self-Help, Counselling and Travel author Pearl Howie – the audiobook of her mini-guide to visiting grey whales in Mexico. I used to get extremely burnt out and couldn’t even handle booking a hotel or flight when I did have time off. I thought “Wouldn’t it be awesome if someone would write a guide that gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant.” So that’s what I did. This guide to San Ignacio and Guerrero Negro gives you the places to stay, (no spa this time, sorry), the ways to see the grey whales up close and personal, and the rest. Despite this being one of my wildest adventures, it is also one of the simplest, because to get there the choice is simple... You either go north, or you go south. There is only one road. I had so many reasons for writing these books - to provide a quick guide for people who think travelling to a special place is beyond them and to enlighten people as to the magic that exists in certain spots, but these are also just simple stories… for dreamers, for those who know their legs will just not carry them to these places, for the unadventurous adventurer, for the person who can't imagine ever going or wanting to go, these stories are just a way of sharing my awareness of a certain place that was important in my journey, however that serves you. 'You will come away feeling as if she was sharing with you personally and will want to read more of her life adventures.” “I’ve just booked my first holiday in 13 years!” 'To me, you are a hero... You have learned to take something negative in your life and make it a positive... a gift to others. It doesn't get any better than that. Don't doubt that you are capable of helping others... in terms of other of life's difficulties... What an adventure!' Susan Jeffers, Ph.D., author of 'Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway' Not small, just travel size.

Sapiens. De animales a dioses (Castellano): Una breve historia de la humanidad Audiobook

Sapiens. De animales a dioses (Castellano): Una breve historia de la humanidad

Author: Yuval Noah Harari Narrator: Luis David García Márquez Release Date: September 2021

El libro de no ficción del año. Bestseller internacional con más de diez millones de ejemplares vendidos. Número 1 en la lista de The New York Times. Recomendado por Barack Obama, Bill Gates y Mark Zuckerberg. De la mano de uno de los historiadores más interesantes de la actualidad, he aquí la fascinante interpretación de Yuval Noah Harari sobre la historia de la humanidad. Bestseller nacional e internacional, este libro explora las formas en que la biología y la historia nos han definido y han mejorado nuestra comprensión de lo que significa ser «humano». Hace 70.000 años al menos seis especies de humanos habitaban la Tierra. Hoy solo queda una, la nuestra: Homo Sapiens. ¿Cómo logró nuestra especie imponerse en la lucha por la existencia? ¿Por qué nuestros ancestros recolectores se unieron para crear ciudades y reinos? ¿Cómo llegamos a creer en dioses, en naciones o en los derechos humanos; a confiar en el dinero, en los libros o en las leyes? ¿Cómo acabamos sometidos a la burocracia, a los horarios y al consumismo? ¿Y cómo será el mundo en los milenios venideros? En Sapiens, Yuval Noah Harari traza una breve historia de la humanidad, desde los primeros humanos que caminaron sobre la Tierra hasta los radicales y a veces devastadores avances de las tres grandes revoluciones que nuestra especie ha protagonizado: la cognitiva, la agrícola y la científica. A partir de hallazgos de disciplinas tan diversas como la biología, la antropología o la economía, Harari explora cómo las grandes corrientes de la historia han modelado nuestra sociedad, los animales y las plantas que nos rodean e incluso nuestras personalidades. ¿Hemos ganado en felicidad a medida que ha avanzado la historia? ¿Seremos capaces de liberar alguna vez nuestra conducta de la herencia del pasado? ¿Podemos hacer algo para influir en los siglos futuros? Audaz, ambicioso y provocador, este libro cuestiona todo lo que creíamos saber sobre el ser humano: nuestros orígenes, nuestras ideas, nuestras acciones, nuestro poder... y nuestro futuro. Reseñas: «El libro definitivo para entender quiénes somos. Provocador, lúcido, aporta un original enfoque sobre la esencia del ser humano.» Julia Navarro «Interesante y provocador. Este libro nos da cierta perspectiva del poco tiempo que llevamos en la Tierra, de la corta vida de la ciencia y la agricultura, y de por qué no debemos dar nada por sentado.» Barack Obama «Recomendaría este libro a cualquier persona interesada en una historia de la humanidad a la vez entretenida y desafiante [...] No se puede dejar de leer.» Bill Gates «Aborda las cuestiones más importantes de la historia y del mundo moderno y, además, está escrito con un estilo vívido e inolvidable.» Jared Diamond, premio Pulitzer y autor de Armas, gérmenes y acero «Un libro que invita a la reflexión.» Mark Zuckerberg «Un repaso absorbente de la peripecia humana, escrito con rigor e irreverencia ilustrada.» Antonio Muñoz Molina, El País «Un libro fascinante, como nuestra especie. Nos ayudará a saber de dónde venimos para decidir hacia dónde vamos. Recomiendo Sapiens casi antes que saludar. ¡Disfrútenlo!» Leonor Watling «Monumental, brillante, provocadora.» Pablo Jáuregui, El Mundo «Cuenta la historia del ser humano desde su origen hasta que se convirtió en el rey de la creación.» Iñaki Gabilondo «Me fascina la forma de pensar de este tipo.» Risto Mejide «El aclamado Sapiens de Yuval Noah Harari hace para la evolución humana lo que Brevísima historia del tiempo, de Hawking, hizo para la física [...], un excelente trabajo que perfila nuestra lenta emergencia y eventual dominación del planeta.» Forbes «Por fin alguien ha escrito un libro como este.» Sebastian Junger

The Hidden History of American Healthcare: Why Sickness Bankrupts You and Makes Others Insanely Rich Audiobook

The Hidden History of American Healthcare: Why Sickness Bankrupts You and Makes Others Insanely Rich

Author: Thom Hartmann Narrator: Sean Pratt Release Date: September 2021

Popular progressive radio host and New York Times bestselling author Thom Hartmann reveals how and why attempts to implement affordable universal healthcare in the United States have been thwarted and what we can do to finally make it a reality. 'For-profit health insurance is the largest con job ever perpetrated on the American people-one that has cost trillions of dollars and millions of lives since the 1940s," says Thom Hartmann. Other countries have shown us that affordable universal healthcare is not only possible but also effective and efficient. Taiwan's single-payer system saved the country a fortune as well as saving lives during the coronavirus pandemic, enabling the country to implement a nationwide coronavirus test-and-contact-trace program without shutting down the economy. This resulted in just ten deaths, while more than 500,000 people have died in the United States. Hartmann offers a deep dive into the shameful history of American healthcare, showing how greed, racism, and oligarchic corruption led to the current "sickness for profit" system. Modern attempts to create versions of government healthcare have been hobbled at every turn, including Obamacare. There is a simple solution: Medicare for all. Hartmann outlines the extraordinary benefits this system would provide the American people and economy and the steps we need to take to make it a reality. It's time for America to join every industrialized country in the world and make health a right, not a privilege.
