Gerüchte und Falschmeldungen begleiten die Menschheitsgeschichte von Beginn an. Ihre politischen und militärischen Folgen waren oft verheerend. Mit dem Aufstieg von ´´Fake News´´ ist klar, dass Gerüchte und Falschmeldungen im Zeitalter der sozialen Medien geschichtsträchtiger sind als je zuvor. Die Autoren führen an elf Beispielen aus dem 20. und 21. Jahrhundert vor, wie Fehlinformationen und Gerüchte im Spannungsfeld zwischen Politik, Medien und Öffentlichkeit ihren verhängnisvollen Lauf nahmen. Dabei haben sie Fälle gewählt, die für Deutschland von zentraler Bedeutung waren - von der NS-Zeit (´´Alpenfestung´´) über den Kalten Krieg (´´Amikäfer´´) bis in die allerjüngste Gegenwart.
Have you watched the news lately? They can´t stop talking about hacking. It is portrayed in movies, shouted about in media headlines, and typically gets a lot of attention. In fact, in the run up to the 2016 US Presidential election, there were allegations made nearly every day that the Russians were influencing the election by hacking into American databases and systems. And who can forget Julian Assange and his infamous WikiLeaks that successfully hacked into hundreds of thousands of emails, and whose actions may have kept Hillary Clinton out of the White House. All this is commonly known as black hat hacking - where the hacker gets onto a network in the hopes of obtaining information that was not intended for their use. However, there is another side of hacking - known as ethical hacking - that operates within the legal frameworks. In fact, many companies pay ´´ethical hackers´´ hefty salaries to keep their organization´s information safe. After listening to this book, there´s no reason you can´t become one of those individuals and dramatically increase your paycheck!

Recalling contemporary classics such as Americanah, Behold the Dreamers, and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, a funny, poignant, and insightful debut novel that explores the complexities of family, immigration, prejudice, and the American dream through meaningful and unlikely friendships forged in unusual circumstances. Pival Sengupta has done something she never expected: She has booked a trip with the First Class India USA Destination Vacation Tour Company. But unlike other upper-class Indians on a foreign holiday, the recently widowed Pival is not interested in sightseeing. She is traveling thousands of miles from Kolkota to New York on a cross-country journey to California, where she hopes to uncover the truth about her beloved son, Rahi. A year ago Rahi devastated his very traditional parents when he told them he was gay. Then Pival’s husband, Ram, told her that their son had died suddenly - heartbreaking news she still refuses to accept. Now, with Ram gone, she is going to America to find Rahi, alive and whole or dead and gone, and come to terms with her own life. Arriving in New York, the tour proves to be more complicated than anticipated. Planned by the company’s indefatigable owner, Ronnie Munshi - a hardworking immigrant and entrepreneur hungry for his own taste of the American dream - it is a work of haphazard improvisation. Pavil’s guide is the company’s new hire, the guileless and wonderfully resourceful Satya, who has been in America for one year - and has never actually left the five boroughs. For modesty’s sake Pival and Satya will be accompanied by Rebecca Elliot, an aspiring young actress. Eager for a paying gig, she’s along for the ride, because how hard can a two-week ´´working´´ vacation traveling across America be? Slowly making her way from coast to coast with her unlikely companions, Pival finds that her understanding of her son - and her hopes of a reunion with him - are challenged by 1. Language: English.
