Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania (population 3,000 outside of tourist season). And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed date, Catherine saves a man's life. It isn't until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has rescued: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling. Catherine has already had her 15 minutes of fame, and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works. For a time. But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. There's an immediate connection, and it's more electric than the bond of two people who endured a traumatic event. It's something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn't sure she can handle, something she is afraid to trust. Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine...before the spark fades? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Shayna Thibodeaux.

Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Mar...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Trayvon Martin's parents take listeners beyond the news cycle with an account only they could give: the intimate story of a tragically foreshortened life and the rise of a movement. Now a docuseries on the Paramount Network produced by Shawn Carter.On a February evening in 2012, in a small town in central Florida, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was walking home with candy and a can of juice in hand and talking on the phone with a friend when a fatal encounter with a gun-wielding neighborhood watchman ended his young life. The watchman was briefly detained by the police and released. Trayvon's father - a truck driver named Tracy - tried to get answers from the police but was shut down and ignored. Trayvon's mother, a civil servant for the city of Miami, was paralyzed by the news of her son's death and lost in mourning, unable to leave her room for days. But in a matter of weeks, their son's name would be spoken by President Obama, honored by professional athletes, and passionately discussed all over traditional and social media. And at the head of a growing nationwide campaign for justice were Trayvon's parents, who - driven by their intense love for their lost son - discovered their voices, gathered allies, and launched a movement that would change the country. Five years after his tragic death, Travyon Martin's name is still evoked every day. He has become a symbol of social justice activism, as has his hauntingly familiar image: the photo of a child still in the process of becoming a young man, wearing a hoodie and gazing silently at the camera. But who was Trayvon Martin, before he became, in death, an icon? And how did one black child's death on a dark, rainy street in a small Florida town become the match that lit a civil rights crusade? Rest in Power, told through the compelling alternating narratives of Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, answers, for the first time, those questions from the most intimate of sources. It's 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adenrele Ojo, J. D. Jackson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/004867/bk_rand_004867_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

British Leyland vehicles

Source: Wikipedia. Pages: 63. Chapters: Mini, Morris Marina, BMC ADO16, Range Rover Classic, Austin Maestro, Triumph Dolomite, Mini Moke, Austin Allegro, Triumph Spitfire, Princess, Jaguar XJS, Rover SD1, Austin Montego, Leyland P76, Austin Maxi, Triumph Stag, Triumph TR7, Triumph Toledo, British Rail Class 155, Morris Ital, Triumph Acclaim, Austin Ambassador, Innocenti Mini, Morris Nomad. Excerpt: The Mini is a small car that was made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960s, and its space-saving front-wheel-drive layout (which allowed 80% of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage) influenced a generation of car-makers. The vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent to its German contemporary, the Volkswagen Beetle, which enjoyed similar popularity in North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T. This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis. It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants in England, the Victoria Park / Zetland British Motor Corporation (Australia) factory in Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain (Authi), Belgium, Chile, Italy (Innocenti), Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela and Yugoslavia. The Mini Mark I had three major UK updates: the Mark II, the Clubman and the Mark III. Within these was a series of variations including an estate car, a pick-up truck, a van and the Mini Moke a jeep-like buggy. The Mini Cooper and Cooper "S" were sportier versions that were successful as rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times from 1964 through to 1967, although in 1966 the Mini was disqualified after the finish, along with six other British entrants, which included the first four cars to finish, under a questionable ruling that the cars had used an illegal combination of headlamps and spotlights. Initially Minis were marketed under the Austin and Morris names, as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini Minor, until Mini became a marque in its own right in 1969. The Mini was again marketed under the Austin name in the 1980s. Designed as project ADO15 (Austin Drawing Office project number 15), the Mini came about because of a fuel shortage caused by the 1956 Suez Crisis. Petrol was once again r

Lei Feng: China's Evolving Cultural Icon, 1960s...
35,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1962, very few people within the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) had ever heard of Lei Feng, a young soldier who died in a tragic accident while driving a truck for the People's Liberation Army. The following year, his name was known throughout China as one of the finest young soldiers that the country had ever produced. In years to come, his diary was put in the hands of everyone from school children to soldiers with the purpose of serving as a model for the ideal Chinese citizen. As Chinese culture evolved, so did the persona of Lei Feng, from citizen-soldier-peasant of the 1960s and 1970s, to an icon for socialist entrepreneurship during the 1980s and 1990s. The twenty-first century has seen Lei Feng take on a life of his own, becoming a global ambassador professing the redeeming power of Maoist thought to all humanity. Though Lei Feng was an actual person, the details of his life-including his famous diary- were largely manufactured by Lin Biao, a powerful leader and effective propagandist of the People's Liberation Army (PLA). But the question remains: why has the mythic figure of Lei Feng been so astoundingly successful from its creation in 1963 to the present day?
