Passengers: True Stories of the Underground Railroad Audiobook

Passengers: True Stories of the Underground Railroad

Brought to you by Penguin. WITH AN INTRODUCTION FROM TA-NEHISI COATES, AUTHOR OF THE WATER DANCER A riveting collection of the hardships, hairbreadth escapes, and mortal struggles of enslaved people seeking freedom: These are the true stories of the Underground Railroad. A secret network of safe houses, committees and guides that stretched well below the Mason-Dixon Line into the brutal slave states of the American South, the Underground Railroad remains one of the most impressive and well-organised resistance movements in modern history. It facilitated the escape of over 30,000 slave 'passengers' through America and into Canada during its peak years of 1850-60, and, in total, an estimated 100,000 slaves found their freedom through the network. Abridged from William Still's The Underground Railroad Records - an epic historical document that chronicles the first-hand stories of American slaves who escaped to freedom via the Underground Railroad - Passengers tells of the secret methods, risks and covert sacrifices that were made to liberate so many from slavery. From tales of men murdered in cold blood for their part in helping assist runaways and terrifyingly tense descriptions of stowaways and dramatic escape plans, to stories of families reunited and the moments of absurdity that the Underground Railroad forced its 'passengers' to sometimes endure, Still's narratives testify to the humanity of this vast enterprise.

On Not Dying: Secular Immortality in the Age of Technoscience Audiobook

On Not Dying: Secular Immortality in the Age of Technoscience

Author: Abou Farman Narrator: Neil Shah Release Date: October 2020

An ethnographic exploration of technoscientific immortality On Not Dying is an anthropological, historical, and philosophical exploration of immortality as a secular and scientific category. Based on an ethnography of immortalist communities-those who believe humans can extend their personal existence indefinitely through technological means-and an examination of other institutions involved at the end of life, Abou Farman argues that secular immortalism is an important site to explore the tensions inherent in secularism: how to accept death but extend life; knowing the future is open but your future is finite; that life has meaning but the universe is meaningless. As secularism denies a soul, an afterlife, and a cosmic purpose, conflicts arise around the relationship of mind and body, individual finitude and the infinity of time and the cosmos, and the purpose of life. Immortalism today, Farman argues, is shaped by these historical and culturally situated tensions. Immortalist projects go beyond extending life, confronting dualism and cosmic alienation by imagining (and producing) informatic selves separate from the biological body but connected to a cosmic unfolding.

MH370: Mystery Solved Audiobook

MH370: Mystery Solved

Author: Larry Vance Narrator: Mike Manz Release Date: October 2020

On March 8th, 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, with 239 people on board, disappeared into the dark of the night, never to be heard from again. The disappearance of MH370 has been described as the 'greatest mystery in the history of aviation'. Despite the efforts of an international investigation team, and millions of dollars spent searching the ocean bottom for the wreckage site, no one has been able to determine what really happened. Until now... For this book, three professional accident investigators, each with decades of real-world experience in crash dynamics, examined the available evidence. The results of their work reveal the actual sequence of events, and what really happened to MH370. This book uses plain language, easy to understand schematics, and clear photos of the actual wreckage to bring the evidence to life. Even those with little or no aviation connection will be able to understand and appreciate the validity of this eye-opening analysis. You will see that the official investigation was deficient. They missed, or misinterpreted, crucial evidence that was available on the recovered wreckage pieces. Therefore, they used incorrect assumptions about what was happening onboard MH370 when they calculated the boundaries for their search zones. This book will reveal why the multi-million dollar ocean bottom search efforts had almost no chance of success. You will be guided through a basic investigation and analysis process to show what caused MH370 to disappear from radar, and to fly on an unexplained and mysterious track that led to the southern Indian Ocean. Many people have presented theories to try to explain the MH370 disappearance. This book shows you a basic investigation framework where theories that are based on speculation and guesswork can be invalidated. You are left with only one scenario that is totally based on confirmed facts. The known and indisputable evidence fits with only one chain of events, and that is the chain of events presented by the author. With this book, the mystery of MH370 has been solved.

Harrier 809: Britain’s Legendary Jump Jet and the Untold Story of the Falklands War Audiobook

Harrier 809: Britain’s Legendary Jump Jet and the Untold Story of the Falklands War

Author: Rowland White Narrator: Roy Mcmillan Release Date: October 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. 'Harrier 809 is a truly insightful study of this iconic British aircraft at war, and a tremendous account of the personal experiences of those who flew it in battle. By turns exciting, moving and enlightening; Rowland White has crafted yet another brilliant account of aerial warfare.' JOHN NICHOL, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF SPITFIRE When the Falkland Islands were invaded by Argentina in April 1982, Britain’s immediate response was to send a task force. But behind the pomp and bravado of its departure, a sober reality lurked. A mere 20 Sea Harriers operating from two aircraft carriers would take on the might of the Argentine air force, some 200 planes strong. The MOD estimated that within four days and against such formidable air power, half the harriers would likely be lost. To reinforce that meagre force, and in just three weeks, the Navy formed, trained and equipped a brand new squadron from scratch. Not since the Second World War had so much been expected of such a small band of pilots. Their home would be a container ship converted into a makeshift carrier. 809 Naval Air Squadron was born. Other covert operations mounted by MI6 and the SAS in Latin America would provide vital intelligence to protect the task force from attack but in the vanguard of the conflict it would be the Sea Harriers of the 809 whose heroics in the South Atlantic which would become legendary. With characteristic insider knowledge and in thrilling detail, Rowland White tells the story of those amazing exploits - the dogfights, the twenty-three kills, the deadly Exocet attacks, the ejections – demonstrating just why the Harrier is mentioned in the same breath as the Spitfire, the Lancaster and the Vulcan and is destined to join them in the ranks of our most celebrated aeronautical achievements. © Rowland White 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

What is a block? Applications of Blockchain? What is a smart contract? How is mining done? What is centralization and decentralization?

Important Astronauts, Cosmonauts, and Other Spaceflight Personalities Audiobook

Important Astronauts, Cosmonauts, and Other Spaceflight Personalities

Author: Martin K. Ettington Narrator: Martin K. Ettington Release Date: October 2020

This book is the eighth volume of “The Living in Space Series”. Each volume focuses on one particular technology of living in space. This book covers the Astronauts, Cosmonauts, and other individuals who were responsible for some of the biggest space adventures to date. When I was a kid growing up in the 1960s my friends and I were always listening to the latest news about the Mercury Seven and their latest adventures flying into space. As of 2020 less than 600 persons have gone into space. These people have pioneered many different types of space activities and are responsible for many legends. In 1985 while working for Hewlett Packard I got myself transferred to work at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas for a couple of years. It was incredible for me because I got to see the manned space flight center up close, walk inside of Space mockups, and meet many astronauts. In fact it was David Wolf—who later became an astronaut who took me up for rides in his Pitt Special Acrobatic plane (where I got really sick) which convinced me to get my own pilots license. I even applied for the astronaut corps but didn’t make it. I also knew Julie Resnick who was killed in the Challenger explosion. It was very impressive attending the Challenger public funeral where President Reagan spoke. As a lifelong space buff, I’m very happy to write this book series and introduce the key players here. In this book we will profile those persons who have been the star players in man’s exploration of space, and who have made major space contributions over the years.

Blockchain, The Ultimate Cryptocurrency Guide: The Latest Beginner's Guide about Blockchain Technolo Audiobook

Blockchain, The Ultimate Cryptocurrency Guide: The Latest Beginner's Guide about Blockchain Technolo

Author: Yoshi Takeshita Narrator: Dms Release Date: October 2020

Blockchain is the new breed of innovation that has already begun to reinvent trade, social and political relationships, and any other form of exchange of value. For once, it's not just a transition, it's a strong trend already in practice. As of this writing, over 40 top financial organizations and many different companies across industries have begun investigating blockchain to minimize transaction costs, speed up transaction time, reduce fraud risk, and remove intermediary or broker services. Some are trying to re-imagine legacy systems and services to take them to a new level and develop new types of service offerings as well. In the public conversation and in the media, the blockchain has received a lot of attention. Many fans contend that the blockchain has been the best innovation since the Internet emerged. Therefore, a lot of books and articles about the blockchain have been written over the past few years. The book was written because it involves a conceptual understanding of the blockchain's technological foundations to grasp actual blockchain implementations, analyze business cases of blockchain start-ups, or follow the analysis of its future economic impacts. It will be impossible to assess the value or potential impact of the blockchain in general or to understand the added value of specific blockchain applications without an appreciation of the underlying concepts. The book focuses on the blockchain's underlying concepts as a lack of understanding of a new technology will contribute to the excitement being carried away and then frustrated due to unrealistic unreasonable expectations.
