This science-fiction novel is created as a 10-book series.After a human invention discovers an alien race, it doesn’t take long for humanity to learn that our fates have been connected for some time. As mankind struggles to process this information, they are surprised, once again, at learning about a second alien race and a war between the two that dates back to our ancient times. And yes, you guessed it. The final battle will take place here on Earth. All mankind finds itself trying to survive between the forces of good and the forces of evil. As the story plays out, it starts to seem eerily familiar to the story in the Holy Bible, especially when some of the prophecies from The Book of Revelations start to become reality in the real world. And of course, I left out a few surprises and twists. Hope you enjoy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: TGW Enterprise Inc, (Jim Watkins).

Studio drummer Hal Blaine and an archive interview with journalist James Fallows on this edition of Fresh Air. Hal Blaine's distinctive sound could be heard on thousands of recordings from the late 1950s and on for 25 years. He played on the hit records, Be My Baby by The Ronettes, Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys, I Got You Babe, by Sony and Cher, Mr. Tambourine Man, by The Byrds, Monday, Monday by The Mamas and the Papas, Strangers in the Night by Frank Sinatra, and many, many more. Last year, Blaine was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. James Fallows is the national correspondent for The Atlantic Monthly and the author of Looking at the Sun. In this 1994 interview, Fallows examined political and economic systems that arose in East Asia, which challenged Western principles of capitalism and democracy. Fallows argues the impact of Asia on the West has been hidden by America's false perception about the "success" of individual enterprise and rights in the area. He predicts Korea, Taiwan, and "Greater China" are the most likely countries to dominate the region economically. (Broadcast Dates: May 9, 2001 and April 20. 1994) 1. Language: English.

Critics of President Obama have attacked him as a socialist, an African American radical, and a big-government liberal. But somehow the critics have failed to understand what’s truly driving Barack Obama. Now best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza throws out these misplaced attacks in his new book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage. D’Souza explains that the reason Obama appears to be working to destroy America from within is found, as Obama himself admits, in The Dreams of My Father: a deeply hostile anticolonialism. Instilled in him by his father, this worldview has led President Obama to resent America and everything we stand for. Viewing Obama through this anticolonialism prism and drawing evidence from President Obama’s own life and writings, D’Souza masterfully shows how Obama is working to weaken and punish America here and abroad. From enacting crippling financial reforms to setting artificial withdrawal dates in Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama is trying to muzzle the capitalism which he sees as exploiting the weak. Our president, argues D’Souza, is more concerned with being labeled as America the Oppressor than winning the war on terror. The Roots of Obama’s Rage reveals Obama for who he really is: a man driven by the anticolonial ideology of his father and the first American president to actually seek to reduce America’s strength, influence, and standard of living. Controversial and compelling, The Roots of Obama’s Rage is poised to be the one book that truly defines Obama and his presidency. Dinesh D’Souza is the best-selling author of several books, including What’s So Great about America, What’s So Great about Christianity, and Life after Death. He has been a White House policy analyst, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and a fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. He lives in Rancho Santa Fe, California, with his wife Dixie and their daughter Danielle. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Runnette.

Due to shortage of adequate pasture in large parts of South Africa, winter survival poses a problem to farmers. A shortage in winter grazing is the major problem on most farms in South Africa. Animals loose weight in winter which leads to low reproduction, production of milk, mutton and meat. The winter feed shortages counteract also the possible good performance of animals during summer. Winter supplementation contributes largely to high input costs in livestock production, which can make this enterprise uneconomically. This study was done at two different localities: Hygrotech's experimental farm at Dewageningsdrift, Gauteng and Nooitgedacht Agricultural Development center, Mpumalunga. Five winter fodder crop cultivars (Witteberg oats, Overberg oats, LS 35 stooling rye, LS 62 stooling rye and Cloc 1 Triticale) were planted on six planting dates (05 April, 04 May, 06 June, 20 July, 20 August and 26 September).

Das Londoner Trio mit Ihrem Debut Album auf Angular Records.

The EPCglobal Network and RFID technology, initially developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and licensed in October 2003 to Global Standards I (GS1), holds great promise for transforming business through the use of low-cost, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags to improve information flow and productivity. Through the placement of tags on individual items, cases, and pallets, RFID Technology will provide instant two-way communication within supply chains by merging information with physical goods. The EPCglobal Network uses the Internet to transmit data gathered from RFID tags as well as a sophisticated information infrastructure designed at MIT. This book explores the essentials of RFID and the EPCglobal Network from the perspective of a practitioner that needs to make business decisions concerning the adoption of the technology. The perspective is from the supply chain management standpoint with emphasis on case studies and new thinking about the subject.
