Bigotry is an ugly and evil thing. What is even more insidious is when you start to hate the people of your own race. Kathy wanted to be white. She learned to talk white and walk white and even had herself a handsome white husband. The only thing wrong with her life was that she had been born black. While on a shopping trip in New England, Kathy comes across an old curio shop, which sells her a "special" mirror. With this mirror she can see what she wishes to see. With sleight of hand, the subtle bending of light, and the realization of truth, Kathy and her husband, Robert, learn the frightful lesson of...the mirror. 1. Language: English.

Have you ever believed God had made you sick to teach you a lesson? Do you believe God wants some to be sick but others to be well for a divine purpose known only to himself? Have you struggled with a healing in your body or spirit but it seemed as though God just doesn't want to answer your prayers for healing? Do you believe you've got a thorn in the flesh that God is using to refine your character? These are lies.

Many years ago, the storytellers say, the great King Arthur brought justice to England with the helpof his gallant Knights of the Round Table. King Arthur’s Knights were brave like Sir Lancelot the Great. They were smart like Sir Givret the Short. But they didn’t always act quite as...gallantly as a true knight should.

This week on Car Talk, Summer has come to Antarctica, and the ride in John's Delta has gotten so bumpy that he and his colleagues are banging their heads on the ceiling. Closer to home, Leland's Toyota can't pull a hill. Tom and Ray should have no trouble diagnosing Leland's problem, if they can figure out what "pull a hill" means.

When the British government turn down a revolutionary weapons system in favor of the new Euro fighter, they don't realize the wrath their decision will cause. The only radar system capable of detecting the new Thor's Hammer is the experimental Spyglass system being transported on a cruise liner commanded by ex-navy captain Eric Swanson. Martin Westfarland, designer of Thor's Hammer, decides to teach the British government a lesson by sinking the liner and destroying Spyglass before passing Thor's Hammer onto the Iraqis, who plan to use it to deliver a deadly bioweapon to the West. Through a series of action-filled events, Swanson and Squadron Leader Gerry Denton are brought together to thwart the terrorist attack while the SAS are assigned to locate and destroy the chemical lab in the Syrian Desert that created the virus. Unfortunately the virus has already been loaded onto Thor's Hammer. Thus it falls to Denton to fly the Typhoon Euro fighter against the faster and stealthier Thor's Hammer before it can deliver its deadly payload. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Miller.

From Ed Catmull, co-founder (with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter) of Pixar Animation Studios, the Academy Award - winning studio behind Inside Out and Toy Story, comes an incisive book about creativity in business and leadership - sure to appeal to listeners of Daniel Pink, Tom Peters, and Chip and Dan Heath. Fast Company raves that Creativity, Inc. "just might be the most thoughtful management book ever". Creativity, Inc. is a book for managers who want to lead their employees to new heights, a manual for anyone who strives for originality, and the first-ever, all-access trip into the nerve center of Pixar Animation - into the meetings, postmortems, and "Braintrust" sessions where some of the most successful films in history are made. It is, at heart, a book about how to build a creative culture - but it is also, as Pixar co-founder and president Ed Catmull writes, "an expression of the ideas that I believe make the best in us possible". For nearly 20 years, Pixar has dominated the world of animation, producing such beloved films as the Toy Story trilogy, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Up, WALL-E, and Inside Out, which have gone on to set box-office records and garner 30 Academy Awards. The joyousness of the storytelling, the inventive plots, the emotional authenticity: In some ways, Pixar movies are an object lesson in what creativity really is. Here, in this book, Catmull reveals the ideals and techniques that have made Pixar so widely admired - and so profitable. As a young man, Ed Catmull had a dream: to make the first computer-animated movie. He nurtured that dream as a PhD student at the University of Utah, where many computer science pioneers got their start, and then forged a partnership with George Lucas that led, indirectly, to his founding Pixar with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter in 1986. Nine years later, Toy Story was released, changing an 1. Language: English. Narrator: Laura Holloway. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/068924/bk_acx0_068924_sample.mp3.
