Stable Isotope Ecology: Brian Fry
´´Jean-Paul Sartre had eyes that looked in different directions, so you never really knew in which direction he was philosophising.´´ This book is about nothing. In mathematics there´s only one way for nothing to exist, but there are an infinite number of ways for there to be something. So ´´something´´ is therefore more stable than ´´nothing´´. Which means that the more cluttered the universe is, the more stable it becomes. Does this mean that clutter is good? Brian Luff sets out to prove that it does. Along the way he walks us through a card-carrying Philistine´s view of Western philosophy. There´ll also be football, Internet dating, yoghurt-making, and hundreds of bags of low fat cheese puffs. Plus, how do you play the game of Pogs, and what constitutes the perfect piece of toast? If all this sounds a bit complicated, don´t worry, he dumbs it down quite a lot. Cheesy Wotsits and the History of Western Philosophy will change your life for at least 10 minutes. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Luff.

The second book in the Fluorescence series. A riveting paranormal romance, the Fluorescence series is engaging and unabashed - a coming-of-age urban fantasy unlike any other. The fire has been started and things have changed for the Fluorescent Ones. Brian is fighting to keep the seams of a once stable life from unraveling as a massive turn of events thrusts him into chaos. The Saviors had a terrible secret in store, and now he and the others must make decisions that will impact their future forever. In a unique genre all its own, Fluorescence is a striking blend of audacious young love and urban sci-fi. Each full-length novel in the series is narrated by a different character, driving the story forward in a new and exciting way. It evolves from a quiet beginning into a gripping saga exploring the real-life limitations encountered while harboring a volatile secret. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: P. Anastasia.

The Beatles´ third tour of North America was nearly a year in the planning. By late 1964, manager Brian Epstein knew that they were not only the biggest act in his stable: they had become the biggest act on earth. America worshipped them. Somewhere different for the start of this tour, in New York - somewhere appropriately massive - had to be found. It was: a baseball stadium in Flushing, Queens. On August 15, 1965, The Beatles played the concert of their lives there. This is that story. Here also are the huge strides in writing, musicianship, and recording the group made in the 12 months or so leading up to Shea Stadium. Some of this was played at the gig but little above the screams was heard. The Beatles at Shea 50 years ago remains, nonetheless, a watershed 1960s moment: the climax in the live career of the greatest quartet the world has known. ungekürzt. Language: English.

Gleich zu Semesterbeginn erfährt die ebenso hübsche wie tänzerisch hochbegabte Whittier Smith, wo an ihrem neuen College der Hammer hängt: Entweder, man tanzt nach der Pfeife von Lokalmatadorin Tina, oder man begräbt alle Cheerleader-Hoffnung im Keim. Whittier will sich dem Diktat nicht beugen und formt, frisch von Tina gefeuert, aus anderen Zurückgewiesenen und Außenseitern eine Konkurrenztruppe. Da zum alljärlichen Wettbewerb nur eine Gruppe pro Uni reisen darf, bleibt ein direkter Wettstreit unvermeidlich.Darsteller:Anne Judson-Yager, Bree Turner, Faune A.
