The Common-School System of Germany and its Lessons to America: Levi Seeley
WHEN THIS DOCTOR TALKS, YOU SHOULD LISTEN. Thousands of people make an early exit each year and arrive on medical examiner Jan Garavaglia´s table. What is particularly sad about this is that many of these deaths could easily have been prevented. Although Dr. Garavaglia, or Dr. G, as she´s known to many, could not tell these individuals how to avoid their fates, we can benefit from her experience and profound insight into the choices we make each day. In How Not to Die, Dr. G acts as a medical detective to identify the often-unintentional ways we harm our bodies, then shows us how to use that information to live better and smarter. She provides startling tips on how to make wise choices so that we don´t have to see her, or someone like her, for a good, long time. ? In ´´Highway to the Morgue,? we learn the one commonsense safety tip that can prevent deadly accidents?and the reason you should never drive with the windows half open ? ´´Code Blue? teaches us how to increase our chances of leaving the hospital alive?and how to insist that everyone caring for you practice the easiest hygiene method around ? ´´Everyday Dangers? informs us why neat freaks live longer?and the best ways to stay safe in a car during a lightning storm Using anecdotes from her cases and a liberal dose of humor, Dr. G gives us her prescription for living a healthier, better, longer life?and unlike many doctors´ orders, this one is surprisingly easy to follow.

Northern Light: Lessons for America from Canada´s Fiscal Fix: Brian Lee Crowley/ Robert P. Murphy
The mistakes the United States has made in Latin America - and the high price it will pay for them. Could it be that for the first time in history, the United States needs Latin America more than the other way round? Since the early 1800s, the United States regarded the region as its backyard, but in the past decade South Americas leaders have increasingly snubbed US efforts to persuade them to adopt free-market economics and sign trade agreements. While Washington has been distracted by military campaigns elsewhere, rivals such as China, Russia, and Iran have expanded their clout in Latin America, and US influence in the region has fallen to a historic low - at the very time that the United States has become more dependent than ever on exporting to Latin America and importing its oil. Combining sharp wit and great storytelling with trenchant analysis, Hal Weitzman examines how America lost the South and argues that if the United States is to find a new role in a world of emerging superpowers, it must reengage with Latin America. Charts the rise of resource nationalism - in which governments take increasing control of natural resources and squeeze multinational corporations - in South America and across the world. Illustrates analytical points with vivid stories - such as the disappearance of the Panama hat or the sweater Evo Morales wore throughout a world tour - and interviews with presidents, policymakers, and protesters. Written by a Financial Times journalist who formerly served as its Andes correspondent based in Lima, Peru. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Kaiser.
