Ebony had a secret…. An ill-advised relationship with a married man in the church sent Ebony down a path of regret, which led to an unplanned pregnancy. She lost it all- her virginity, position in the church, respect, and thrown into motherhood. When the news of the pregnancy reached the ears of Ebony´s father, emotions flared. Not because he was without sin, but for the simple fact that he was the pastor of the church. Pastor Rose knew being the pastor of the church, his reaction must follow the guidelines of the scriptures. However, as the father of a daughter, his response was everything except biblical.
With the popularity of the first book, The Good News About Being Catholic, I was destined to produce a second book. The first book was inspired by conversations I had during a two-week trip to a southern university in the US. The lack of accurate information and the bigotry I encountered by the well-meaning Christians and others along the way was shocking to me. Be that as it may, I decided to write this short piece on the psychological healing aspects of the Sacrament of Confession, now called Reconciliation. In my life and my work as a professional Counselor I cannot think of a single more powerful agent for healing than this Sacrament. I have known many people who have been saved from anxiety, depression, and suicide through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. For others it has brought joy and higher quality of life, which is often hard to describe unless you have experienced it. In this little book I will endeavor to share with you what it is like to be touched by the healing presence of Christ. Disclaimer of Liability Nothing in this book is to be used as a substitute for competent spiritual and psychological counseling. If you have issues, go get help. This is just a frank discussion. Note: all identifying characteristics of the persons have been sanitized from this presentation. The stories are true but the privacy of the individual must be preserved. Full Disclosure: I am a devout Roman Catholic and an avid participant in sacraments. Although I have made every effort to faithfully represent the faith system; you should really talk to a priest if you have concerns or questions. I have had a minimal amount of formal training. 1.

Is there something about you that you hope no one else ever finds out? You´re not alone. Everyone has secrets, hurts, abuses, bad habits, fears. Big or small, secrets can destroy you from the inside out. The good news is that confession is more powerful than secrets--or the fear that keeps you from telling them. Aaron Stern shows you the powerful roots of secret-keeping, the difference between good secrets and bad secrets, what confession is (and isn´t). Using personal stories and anonymous confessions from others, Aaron will remind you of the beauty of forgiveness and the joy that comes from living in the freedom God has always wanted you to have. 1.

You’ve seen it all before. A malicious online rumor costs a company millions. A political sideshow derails the national news cycle and destroys a candidate. Some product or celebrity zooms from total obscurity to viral sensation. What you don’t know is that someone is responsible for all this. Usually, someone like me. I’m a media manipulator. In a world where blogs control and distort the news, my job is to control blogs—as much as any one person can. In today’s culture… 1) Blogs like Gawker, Buzzfeed, and the Huffington Post drive the media agenda. 2) Bloggers are slaves to money, technology, and deadlines. 3) Manipulators wield these levers to shape everything you read, see and watch—online and off. Why am I giving away these secrets? Because I´m tired of a world where blogs take indirect bribes, marketers help write the news, reckless journalists spread lies, and no one is accountable for any of it. I´m pulling back the curtain because I don´t want anyone else to get blindsided. I’m going to explain exactly how the media really works. What you choose to do with this information is up to you.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ryan Holiday. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/gdan/000748/bk_gdan_000748_sample.mp3.

Since the first Martian ´´canals” were charted in 1877, space aliens have captivated skygazers, night travelers, and television-watchers worldwide. Polls show that nearly half of all Americans believe in extraterrestrials, and many are convinced they’ve visited Earth. A fair number of scientists also suspect that aliens exist, and for decades they’ve been seriously searching - using powerful antennas and computers to scan for radio waves coming from other star systems. This engaging memoir reveals the true story of the Search for ExtraterrestrialIntelligence (SETI), and discloses what we may very soon discover. Chronicling the program’s history with insight and humor, SETI senior astronomer Seth Shostak assures us that if there is sentient life in the universe, we are within decades of picking up its signal. Methodically busting urban legends about alien crash landings, crop circles, and the like, Shostak pits scientific truth against speculation and delivers important news on the state of our knowledge. He answers a host of questions about SETI, including where its antennas are aimed…how we know which frequency to monitor…what our response might be…and why, if a signal is detected, ´´it will be one that’s deliberately beamed into space, not the Klingon equivalent of I Love Lucy.” Contrary to popular opinion, any aliens found by SETI will not resemble the squishy, big-eyed creatures on cinema screens. Rather, they will have already invented their successors: super smart post-biological thinking machines vastly beyond our own capabilities. Edgy, amusing, and remarkably profound, Confessions of an Alien Hunter addresses the startling possibilities awaiting us in deep space and in humankind’s own future. 1. Language: English.

Eddie Mair is, by his own account, one of Britain´s most beloved broadcasters. Born in Dundee, Scotland, he has worked in radio all his adult life. From the foothills of commercial radio in his hometown, through the sunlit uplands of the BBC in Scotland, he has reached the peaks of his profession with BBC network radio in London. And he´s never afraid to work a metaphor beyond endurance. In addition, he´s appeared on most of the BBC´s TV channels, including ones that are no longer on TV. He witnessed the handover of Hong Kong and once asked Arnold Schwarzenegger a question - though he takes no responsibility for either. For nearly 20 years, he has been at the helm of Radio 4´s PM: a nightly news round-up that means Eddie works for just one hour a day, giving him plenty time to knock together these diaries. Whether he´s interviewing politicians, getting people to share their personal experiences or just imparting his favourite zesty chicken recipes, Eddie is never happier than when he is at the microphone. Except when he is at the microphone with a large martini. In truth, his neediness is an irritation to everyone who knows him and if you buy this book he might get out of their hair. Eddie´s other work, as a humanitarian and tireless, secret worker for charity is not mentioned in this audiobook. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eddie Mair.
