Larry's back – and that's pritty, pritty, pritty good news! Six years after the award-winning Curb Your Enthusiasm ended its last season, the Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning hit series starring writer/producer/comedian Larry David as … writer/producer/comedian Larry David is back. Each episode features verité-style footage of David (playing himself) as he gets into everyday predicaments with both fictional and real-life personalities. With cast regulars Jeff Garlin (as manager Jeff Greene), Susie Essman (as Jeff's wife Susie), Cheryl Hines (as Larry's ex-wife Cheryl) and JB Smoove (as Larry's live-in friend Leon) reprising their roles, the series continues to feature appearances by guests playing themselves or characters. Appearing on new episodes are returning favorites Richard Lewis, Bob Einstein, Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen, as well as Elizabeth Banks, Ed Begley, Jr., Carrie Brownstein, Bryan Cranston, Lauren Graham, Jimmy Kimmel, Nick Offerman, Nasim Pedrad, Elizabeth Perkins and others. This season, Larry has a big idea that elicits promising feedback from a number of prospective investors – until a string of missteps undermines the plan, at least temporarily.

The last presidential campaign of the 19th century was remarkable in a number of ways. It marked the beginning of the use of the news media in a modern manner. It saw the Democratic Party shift toward the more liberal position it occupies today. It established much of what we now consider the Republican coalition: Northeastern, conservative, pro-business. It was also notable for the rhetorical differences of its two candidates. In what is often thought of as a single-issue campaign, William Jennings Bryan delivered his famous “Cross of Gold” speech but lost the election. Meanwhile, William McKinley addressed a range of topics in more than 300 speeches - without ever leaving his front porch.The campaign of 1896 gave the public one of the most dramatic and interesting battles of political oratory in American history, even though, ironically, its issues faded quickly into insignificance after the election. In From the Front Porch to the Front Page, author William D. Harpine traces the campaign month by month to reveal the development of Bryan’s rhetoric and the stability of McKinley’s. He contrasts the divisive oratory Bryan employed to whip up fervor (perhaps explaining the 80 percent turnout in the election) with the lower-keyed unifying strategy McKinley adopted and with McKinley’s astute privileging of rhetorical siting over actual rhetoric.Beyond adding depth and detail to the scholarly understanding of the 1896 presidential campaign itself (and especially the “Cross of Gold” speech), this book casts light on the importance of historical perspective in understanding rhetorical efforts in politics.The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks."Demolishes the images of McKinley as a vapid politician and Bryan as a rube."

Jeff Davis Swaine digs up evidence for a Raleigh, North Carolina, trial law firm. When a client comes home to find his McMansion burglarized - and his new wife's dog dead in the kitchen - the man suspects his ex-wife. But this is someone far more dangerous. From a stolen minivan, washed-up jazz bassist Leonard Noblac is performing his "perfect jazz album of felonies" to punish the zeros in the soulless suburb of Rocky Falls. He composes a series of musical compositions and meticulously plans out symbolic crimes to go along with each one, believing the notoriety from his crimes will finally make him famous for his music. Used to working from the shadow at the back of the stage, and bitter from his failure to make it in the New York jazz world and his move to the suburbs, Leonard puts down a throbbing beat of crime and destruction. As Leonard’s crimes give voice to his rage, he finds himself able to improvise like never before, with terrifying results. Jeff must find Leonard and save the teenager and newborn he has kidnapped before the musician can write them into the fiery crescendo of Leonard’s album. Author Bryan Gilmer teaches news writing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A former newspaper reporter and radio newsreader, he is also the author of the mystery Kill the Story. 1.

One of the most dramatic stories of genetic discovery since James Watson's The Double Helix - a work whose scientific and cultural reverberations will be discussed for years to come. In 1994 Professor Bryan Sykes, a leading world authority on DNA and human evolution, was called in to examine the frozen remains of a man trapped in glacial ice in northern Italy. News of both the Ice Man's discovery and his age, which was put at over 5,000 years, fascinated scientists and newspapers throughout the world. But what made Sykes's story particularly revelatory was his successful identification of a genetic descendant of the Ice Man, a woman living in Great Britain today. How was Sykes able to locate a living relative of a man who died thousands of years ago? In The Seven Daughters of Eve, he gives us a firsthand account of his research into a remarkable gene, which passes undiluted from generation to generation through the maternal line. After plotting thousands of DNA sequences from all over the world, Sykes found that they clustered around a handful of distinct groups. Among Europeans and North American Caucasians, there are, in fact, only seven. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Page.
