Bubble Valley is introduced through the eyes of four major characters. Billy Waters, a 12-year-old Spanish boy who had the unfortunate luck of growing up in a "Union" prison with his parents, who committed a heinous crime. When Billy's parents' death sentence is carried out, he is sent to live with his grandfather and family in Tangerine Park, Florida. Billy is lost in the world without his parents and the only life he'd ever known, until he's introduced to his cousin Manny's secret hideout and the mysterious Mr. Caytoe. Ru-Ado is a 13-foot tall albino Sasquatch inhabiting the land on the outskirts of Mt. Shasta, California with his extended family. Ru-Ado unintentionally causes the death of his father Ado-Han's brother, Sho-Ana-Do, by two local hunters after they squabble about hunting protocol. Ru-Ado is banished from his tribe to find his way in life. Takeshi Nakano, a 17-year-old baseball phenom and only son to Hiro Nakano, New Japan's most gloried player, is destined for a job playing World League Baseball until his universe changes over night after an unfortunate encounter that tests him like never before. Alone and desperate in the forest, he is forced to survive off of the land. Takeshi questions his life and the choices that were made for him and has the opportunity to change everything as long as he has the courage. Tem is a 15-foot-warrior of the Anak tribe in Bubble Valley. He is the running champion of the Bubble Valley games and pride of his pyramid city in the middle of the Earth. Tem is caught on ego as he chases his grandfather, Ishmael, into the unguarded and dangerous forests that surround his ancient society of giants and learns a hard lesson. 1. Language: English.

The next bubble to burst will be the education bubble. Make no mistake about it, education is big business and, like other big businesses, it is in big trouble. -Professor Mark C. Taylor, Columbia University, New York Times, Opinion, July 12, 2009. A young, salt-of-the-earth family is caught up in a cyclone of greed, after Dennis Winecoop accepts a position at Washington, D.C.'s Utopia University. Believing he was hired to advise graduate students in history, Professor Winecoop finds he is teaching a full schedule of "Murder 101." The first lesson, it seems, occurred just days before he was hired, when his predecessor was found grotesquely murdered in his bath. The intrigues of multiple murders are the catalysts that drive this dynamic and compelling tale to a shocking conclusion. The events and characters of Murder Cum Laude reveal the ugly reality of Washington politics and one man's aggressive efforts to uncover the truth. A graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, author Bruce Zortman served as a top secret courier during the Korean Conflict. He was awarded a one-year Taussig Fellowship to the Free University in Berlin. As an NDEA Fellow, he earned his PhD with distinction from UCLA. His 25 years as a professional educator include positions at Santa Monica College and American University in Washington, D.C. He is the author of Hitler's Theater (1985), an acting textbook, scholarly articles and several produced plays. Presently, he is Commodore of the Tucson Sailing Club. 1. Language: English.

Meltdown: A Look at Why the Economy Tanked and ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The media tells us that "deregulation" and "unfettered free markets" have wrecked our economy and will continue to make things worse without a heavy dose of federal regulation. But the real blame lies elsewhere. In Meltdown, best-selling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr., unearths the real causes behind the collapse of housing values and the stock market---and it turns out the culprits reside more in Washington than on Wall Street. And the trillions of dollars in federal bailouts? Our politicians' ham-handed attempts to fix the problems they themselves created will only make things much worse. Woods, a senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute and winner of the 2006 Templeton Enterprise Award, busts the media myths and government spin. He explains how government intervention in the economy---from the Democratic hobby horse called Fannie Mae to affirmative action programs like the Community Redevelopment Act---actually caused the housing bubble. Most important, Woods, author of the New York Times best seller The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, traces this most recent boom-and-bust---and all such booms and busts of the past century---back to one of the most revered government institutions of all: the Federal Reserve System, which allows busybody bureaucrats and ambitious politicians to pull the strings of our financial sector and manipulate the value of the very money we use. Meltdown, which features a foreword by Congressman Ron Paul (R - Texas), also provides a timely history lesson to counter the current clamor for a new New Deal. The Great Depression, Woods demonstrates, was only as deep and as long as it was because of the government interventions by Herbert Hoover (no free-market capitalist, despite what your high-school history teacher may have taught you) and Franklin D. Roosevelt (no savior of the American economy, in spite of what the mainstream media says). If you want to understand what c 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alan Sklar.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Since the end of World War II, the Japanese economy has seen rapid changes and remarkable progress, as well as a bubble economy and period of prolonged stagnation. The book seeks to address three major questions: What kind of changes have taken place in the postwar years? In what sense can we say that there has been progress? What lessons can be drawn from the experiences?The book is organized as follows: It begins with an overview of the postwar Japanese economy, in which data that highlights historical changes is shown. The four major economic issues in the postwar Japanese economy (economic restoration, rapid economic growth, the bubble economy and current topics) are addressed, with particular focus on the meaning of economic growth and the bubble economy. The next chapters deal with each of those specific periods in the postwar economy. Chapters 10 and 11 examines the important economic issues for Japan related to a welfare-oriented society, including income distribution, asset distribution, and the relative share of income. Chapter 11 deals with the household structure of Japan and the pension issue, and the importance of the effect of demographic change on income distribution is discussed. The final chapter gives a brief summary, examines quality of life as a lesson of this research, and briefly outlines a proposal for a basic design towards achieving a high satisfaction level society.This book will be of interest to economists, economic historians and political scientists and would be a useful text for any course on the Japanese economy.

The Imposture and Other Tales
53,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A complete collection of all the short stories by John Pascal, some related, some not, about people and events in places around the world; stories of passion and pathos, love and hatred, vengeance and intrigue - in short 'the human condition'- which reveal the well-traveled John Pascal's intimacy with those places and with the men and women, and even the animals who inhabit them. John Pascal is a master at portraying irony - as in 'Digger Malloy,' the story of a man who unwittingly has a bizarre encounter with his estranged daughter. The conclusion to this story will astound you, for Pascal also is adept at producing the surprise ending. Another example of this ability is found in his prize-winning tale 'A Fragile Vessel' where, as described in London's The European, '...at a Sicilian villa dark secrets bubble to the surface, ending an old friendship for ever.' Follow the travels, adventures, mishaps, and intimacies of Desi Guerrero and his beautiful wife Sandy in three contiguous stories as they explore what Evelyn Waugh once called 'that splendid enclosure' - the Mediterranean basin. 'The Maine Coon Cat and the Tiger Snake,' a tale in which a man seeks revenge from his late wife's lover, is a lesson in the emotions of love and hatred. This clever tale has an unforgettable climax, at the center of which is a gifted feline. 'The Lakonia ' and its sequel 'Tancredi' provide thrilling suspense and intrigue which while evocative of such venerable masters as E. Phillips Oppenheim and Eric Ambler are presented in the present-day world of international affairs and intrigue. The collection includes 'The Imposture,' a tour de force which demonstrates the entire panoply of Pascal's powerful writing talents. You won't know whether or not you believe what you have read in 'The Imposture'; what you will know is that you'll want to read more stories by John Pascal. John Pascal is determined to reinstate the short story to its proper place in English literature. This, his latest collection of such stories, is proof that he has every chance of doing so.
