News of violence and news as violence:The discourses of war photography: Photojournalistic representations of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict Ester Bullens
This chapter-level book can change the way you listen to big shots - mostly businesspersons with a snapshot or two of politicians - as they pontificate for public consumption and personal gain. You´ll recognize the spin, that dastardly polite euphemism for lies that the advertising/PR folks coined years ago to anoint their profession with a bit of undeserved dignity. In the process, you might gain a more realistic grasp of what´s going on around you and how your mind is being manipulated, or brainwashed. In all modesty, you´re in good hands; some would say the best, which could be considered bullshit in itself: Who decides? I would be first in line for an honorary doctorate in bullshit if, by some stretch of academic chutzpa, it were tendered by any of the world´s great universities. (Actually, I could easily make the case that degrees in business communications or political science are really degrees in bullshit, but that´s another book.) I am a master at crafting bullshit and you, dear listener, will do well to listen to me. I´ve written millions of words - speeches, strategic plans, articles, and all sorts of marketing lies and spins that I, too, politely call corporate gargle. I´ve done that for a gaggle of executives who toil for businesses large and small, manufacturers and service providers, and technologists and accountants. I´ve been practicing this dark, draconian art, and teaching others how to follow my lead for 40 years, and, as I say jokingly, it shows in my wrinkled face and cynical attitude that I, with a straight face, call realistic, a true reflection of the world. You´ll laugh out loud many times as you wander through these words. My cheeky, witty, acerbic, in-your-face style is sprinkled with the irony of a true gadfly. You´ll resonate - see yourself and your bosses in many of my damning examples as clearly as if you had lived them.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Taverna.

The world has changed and so, too, has investing. The market is shell shocked and yesterday´s momentum stocks are today´s slow-motion stocks. But in the new reality of low-growth investing, commodities are hot and getting hotter. A rapidly industrializing and urbanizing Asia will be demanding lots more copper, zinc, iron ore, coal, fertilizers, gold, and oil to transform their societies. Commodities are it and that´s great news for investors who want to profit from the next great bull market in commodities. In fact, commodities may be about the only asset class that is likely to outperform the broad market in the future. Although they are without a doubt important to the global economy, commodities are among the most misunderstood of all asset classes. Stocks, bonds, and real estate all have legions of followers and plenty of experts agree on their importance within an investment portfolio, but venture into the world of commodities and you are into an area that´s intimidating to the average investor, where suspicions run deep and understanding is limited. As a result, commodities get short-shrift in most investment accounts and investors miss out on some important opportunities. The Little Book of Commodity Investing is an indispensible guide to learning the ins and outs of commodity investing. It´s about identifying opportunities to profit from the coming bull market in commodities. It explains the benefits of commodities as part of a well diversified investment portfolio; covers all of the major commodities markets; what makes commodities and the companies that produce them tick; why commodities sometimes zig and then zag; what to buy and when to buy it; and why commodities are the next big thing. Today´s world is a very different world - a world where an understanding of commodities is a prerequisite for investment success. And The Little Book of Commodity Investing is the roadmap you need to discover where the opportuniti 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeremy Gage.

One dead girl, one scared witness, and two men trained as Navy SEALs. Whether searching for justice or revenge, the final showdown between them is the same - explosive! Dale MacIntyre, former Navy SEAL, works for Sanctuary. He´s the acting handler for a member of the Bullen family´s inner circle. He is close to obtaining the evidence he needs to prove Elisabeth Costains death was ordered by them - until someone gets in his way. Joseph Kinnon, active Navy SEAL, is back on US soil for the first time in months, and he is told the tragic news that his stepsister is dead, gunned down in an alley by an unknown assailant. He is determined to find out who murdered her - until someone gets in his way. They both want the same thing but have different methods of accomplishing their goals. They both want the Bullen family brought to account, but one wants justice and the other wants revenge. What happens between them, however, has nothing to do with either. 1. Language: English.

Just as ´´spin´´ has taken over politics in America, so too has it come to define the long bull market on Wall Street. The booming trade in stocks has produced an insatiable demand for financial intelligence. On television and the Internet, commentators and analysts are not merely reporting the news, they are making news in ways that provide huge windfalls for some investors and crushing losses for others. And they often traffic in rumor, speculation, and misinformation that hit the market at warp speed. New York Times best selling author Howard Kurtz turns his skeptical eye on the business-media revolution that has transformed the American economy. He uncovers the backstage pressures at television shows like CNBC´s Squawk Box and CNN´s Moneyline and at Internet start-ups like TheStreet.com and JagNotes, real-time operations in the very arena where fortunes are made and lost with stunning swiftness. No one has ever reported from inside the Wall Street media machine or laid bare the bitter feuds, cozy friendships, and whispered leaks that move the markets. In a time of head-spinning volatility, The Fortune Tellers is essential audio listening for all of us who gamble our savings in today´s overheated stock market. 1. Language: English.
