Doc Cole was a 39-year-old Army combat medic serving at an Iraqi Police Station. During his tenure there, he treats multiple wounds, fights with the Army Medical Station for support and supplies, and relays a day by day account of blood, sweat, tears, and the ultimate triumph and tragedy of the human spirit. He finds himself with meager supplies, no air conditioning and a language barrier almost impossible to overcome even with an Interpreter. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Wayne Hamelin.

Jetzt erscheint das von vielen Fans sehnlichst erwartete Live-Album. ´´Die Ferienbande und das echt gruselig fies schwere Rätsel - LIVE´´ ist ein Mitschnitt der eigens für die Bühne konzipierten Show aus dem Stalburg Theater in Frankfurt vom Januar 2007. An diesem Abend stehen die Original-Sprecher der Ferienbande sowie Special Guest Matthias Keller und ein Live-Geräuschemacher vor ausverkauftem Haus auf der Bühne und versuchen, das vertrackte Rätsel um den Spuk im Haus der Baronin zu lösen. Selbstverständlich scheitern sie auf ganzer Linie. Unterwegs treffen sie neben der schrulligen Baronin auf ihren Überflieger-Sohn Bert, den ewigen Konkurrenten Kommissar Tappert, einen untalentierten Nebendarsteller und den dilettantischen und obendrein noch holländischen Magier Zörp. Wie gut, dass der Abend mitgeschnitten wurde und nun auf einem Hörbuch erhältlich ist. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: div..

For 16 years, Donald Davis has performed during the Christmas season at Fearrington Village, a unique destination community near Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Hundreds of people fill the seats in this historic barn, now converted for use as an events venue. Recorded live at Davis´s December 15, 2007, performance, this audio captures the familiar and special relationship between a skilled and beloved storyteller and the audience that has sustained him year after year. In three memorable stories, Davis revisits the vertigo occasioned by the rides at the county fair (´´I had my head down between my legs with my fingers in my ears so my liver wouldn´t squirt out through my brain´´), recalls the days when corporal punishment was common (´´most kids didn´t need to worry about it, because every class had about three designated paddlees whose job in life was to get paddled for the whole class´´), and puzzles over the Belks department-store Santa´s inability to remember him (´´I thought, if he can´t remember my name, how´s he going to remember what I want?´´) despite multiple visits. 1.

Ein ganzer Abend ohne Internet? Das wird nicht einfach für Markus Barth. Aber wenn er schon mal auf der Bühne steht, abgeschnitten von seinem Handy, Facebook und Spiegel online, macht er sich eben Gedanken über dieses seltsame Leben zwischen Biomarkt und App-Store. Denn auch als bekennender Internet-Junkie muss man sich manchmal ein paar Fragen stellen: Sind wir eigentlich überinformiert oder unterbelichtet? Krone der Schöpfung oder Deppen mit Smartphones? Und wenn alles jeden Tag einfacher wird, warum fühlt es sich dann so verdammt kompliziert an? Markus Barth, geboren 1977 in Bamberg, wuchs auf in Zeil am Main (Fachwerk! Frohsinn! Frankenwein!). 1999 zog er nach Köln (Kölsch! Klüngel! Karneval!). Dort arbeitet er als Autor und Headwriter für zahlreiche Fernsehshows (von ,´´Die Wochenshow´´ über ,´´Ladykracher´´ bis ´´Die heute Show´´) und verschiedene Bühnenkünstler. Seit 2007 steht Markus Barth auch selbst als Standup-Comedian auf der Bühne, unter anderem bei ,´´NightWash´´,´´Quatsch Comedy Club´´ und ,´´TV Total´´. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Markus Barth.

Most of the general population is not well informed about a common condition affecting the liver, that affects an estimated 29 million people in America alone. Up to 6.5 million of these people, will go on to experience inflammation in their livers or what is also referred to as ´´steatohepatitis.´´ Many will eventually experience cirrhosis in their livers, meaning scarring/lesions that will begin to appear within the organ, which is irreversible and that can eventually lead to death or in the need for a life-saving liver transplant. The author whose words you are listening to in this audiobook, is a patient who has lived with a condition of non-alcoholic fatty liver, since the year 2007 (for six years at the time of writing). My case of the disease has not gone on to become steatohepatitis but I have been diagnosed with enlargement of my liver, which is reversible at this point, if I follow my doctor´s treatments and a weight loss plan (my obesity is between moderate and severe). While I am not a medical professional, I am one who can relate facts concerning this disease, from firsthand experience with it. I can also pass along the knowledge I have accrued, through six years of extensive research on literally hundreds of reputable medical websites, as well as from blogs and articles written by fellow liver disease patients. While the information I will relate is not as extensive as that one could contain through a professional medical journal, I do believe I can express information that most laypersons would be seeking, in addition to sharing my personal experience with this potentially very serious disease. 1.

When a wife goes missing, her husband is often the prime suspect in her disappearance. But what happens when she is never found? These are the stories of 30 missing women. Fascinated by missing persons reports and cold cases for as long as she can remember, JJ Slate´s debut true crime audiobook highlights 30 shocking true stories of wives that have mysteriously vanished, presumably at the hands of her husband. Countless cases like these have played out under the public spotlight, and many of them have been solved after the wife´s remains have eventually been found. But some of these women remain missing years later, denying the families their right to bury their loved ones. Many of these families continue the gruesome search for the remains of their daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, or mother years, even decades, later. Missing Wives, Missing Lives focuses on 30 unique cases in which the wife has never been found and the undying efforts of her family as they continue the painful search to bring her home. The audiobook covers decades older cases, such as Jeanette Zapata, who has been missing since 1976, to more recent and widely known cases, such as Stacy Peterson, who has been missing since 2007. Keeping these women´s stories alive may be the key to solving the mystery and bringing them home to their families. Someone out there knows something. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Karen Roman.

From a top-level operative in the counterterrorism unit of the CIA comes an explosive memoir about the behind-the-scenes fight against Al Qaeda after September 11. Since the death of Osama Bin Laden, interest in counterterrorism is at an all-time high. Most people don’t know that Bin Laden’s death was the culmination of years of covert operations and tactics largely overseen by Jose Rodriguez from 2001 to late 2007 and built on by his successors. Like a real-life Jack Bauer from television’s 24, Rodriguez’s sometimes controversial tenure as Chief of the Agency’s Counterterrorism Center involved CIA officers capturing and detaining key senior Al Qaeda operatives and implementing Enhanced Interrogation Techniques, tools which were an integral part of the War on Terror but are no longer available to those fighting America´s fiercest foes. Born in Puerto Rico and raised in Columbia, Bolivia, and the Dominican Republic, Rodriguez shares his unlikely journey from law school student to CIA recruit and finally, at the end of a 31-year career, to being America’s top spy. Rodriguez sparked controversy and a three-year investigation by his decision to order the destruction of videotapes showing CIA officers conducting harsh, but what he describes as ´´legal, necessary, and effective interrogation[s]”. Riveting and timely, Hard Measures also examines how the current political climate and resulting policies have negatively impacted the CIA’s efficiency - even taking away the mechanisms that made feats like the successful Bin Laden operation possible. 1.
