Keep Your Eyes On the Horizon: Business Lessons from Unsinkable Titanic: Ade Asefeso, Hadrian Parry, Steffen Brygger Lund

This book will draw parallels between the Titanic catastrophe and today´s contemporary business world. As our reader will hopefully see, there are many lessons to be learned by today´s business practitioners. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Ferrand.

A brilliant Medical school graduate Aliya, a sporty and active girl, dies suddenly in a car crash... only to find herself reborn in a completely different body, in the middle of a dilapidated castle during Medieval times. While confused and dismayed, Aliya realizes she has been given another chance at life - so she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work on restoring her new castle and her new life. Aliya has an unusual and difficult goal: reborn as Countess Lilian, she must learn to adjust to an unfamiliar world while trying to introduce the daily conveniences from her familiar modern world. She needs to take care of the collapsing estate of Earton and its inhabitants while living in the past as a disenfranchised woman. Regular robbers and slave-holders attacks won´t let her live in peace, killers and spies are just waiting for her to show a bit of weakness so that they can strike. On the horizon, there is a prospect of meeting with her perpetually absent husband, whom by the way, after her rebirth as Countess Lilian, Aliya has never even seen. ´´First Lessons´´ is the opening book of the series ´´Medieval Tale´´ by Lina J. Potter. The heroine finds herself only at the beginning of a thorny path to progress and happiness. She makes her first steps, building a defense for herself, her new friends, and her rapidly developing business empire - and this is no piece of cake for sure. Despite everything, she has to still go up against the unprogressive and sexist society of the Medieval Ages, with only her knowledge, science, experience, and strong will on her side. Still, Lilian has to act carefully in order not to draw too much attention to her innovations - she knows she could be praised for her genius, or conversely, accused of witchcraft. Aliya-turned-Countess Lilian gets acquainted and communicates easily with everyone from noble people, peasants, artisans, notorious pirates, proud traders of the East, and even with members of the royal family.... 1.

Maisie Dobbs´ first assignment for the British Secret Service takes her undercover to Cambridge as a professor—and leads to the investigation of a web of activities being conducted by the emerging Nazi Party. In the summer of 1932, Maisie Dobbs´ career takes an exciting new turn when she accepts an undercover assignment directed by Scotland Yard´s Special Branch and the Secret Service. Posing as a junior lecturer, she is sent to a private college in Cambridge to monitor any activities ´´not in the interests of His Majesty´s government´´. When the college´s controversial pacifist founder and principal, Greville Liddicote, is murdered, Maisie is directed to stand back as Detective Chief Superintendent Robert MacFarlane and Detective Chief Inspector Richard Stratton spearhead the investigation. She soon discovers, however, that the circumstances of Liddicote´s death appear inextricably linked to the suspicious comings and goings of faculty and students under her surveillance. To unravel this web, Maisie must overcome a reluctant Secret Service, discover shameful hidden truths about Britain´s conduct during the Great War, and face off against the rising powers of the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei—the Nazi Party—in Britain. As the storm clouds of World War II gather on the horizon, this pivotal chapter in the life of Maisie Dobbs foreshadows new challenges and powerful enemies facing the psychologist and investigator—and will engage new listeners and loyal fans of this ´´outstanding´´ series (Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review). 1.

Nearly all kinds of ancient mythology and religions were constructed from early civilizations trying to make sense of their surroundings. The idea of science was completely unknown to them; rather they explained natural phenomena as done by mythical deities. In Greek mythology this is how we come to certain instances like Apollo, the sun god, or Zeus, the god of the heavens and sky. The idea of the sun seemingly running across the horizon was rationalized by them as Apollo driving his blazing chariot through the sky. Night was formed by his rest and subsequent absence. Thunderstorms were Zeus´ anger. His cherished lightning bolts destroyed those who caused him offense. And this goes on and on with each of the gods having domain over certain areas of natural life. There is Poseidon, whose domain was the sea. If you wanted to cross the water on a ship, it was an absolute must to pray and sacrifice to him. Hades ruled the underworld. If you wanted love, your prayers would have to be directed to Aphrodite. Seven reasons to buy this audiobook: 1. It´s short and informative, with no fluff.2.
