Supernatural - Season 8

The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester brothers continues as Supernatural enters its eighth season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have spent their lives on the road, battling every kind of supernatural threat. Over the years, after dozens of bloody adventures, they have faced everything from the yellow-eyed demon that killed their mother to vampires, ghosts, shape shifters, angels and fallen gods. They even came face to face with Lucifer and the Four Horsemen in averting the Apocalypse. With the help of allies - both human and supernatural - they've discovered that every threat they vanquish opens a new door for evil to enter in. In the show's seventh season, their hunt for the dreaded Leviathans - monstrous creatures escaped from Purgatory - has cost them dearly. Claiming the life of their best friend and father figure, Bobby Singer, and shattering their protector, the fallen angel Castiel, Sam and Dean's battle to somehow defeat the age-old Leviathan threat will take everything they've got. As dawn arrives after their endless struggle and sacrifice to defeat the world's evils, they know that, come nightfall, something otherworldly - something supernatural - will claw its way out of the shadows, demanding their attention.

Marketing in the #Fakenews Era: New Rules for a...

Managing and protecting a company’s brand is one of the most important jobs of the chief marketing officer, the chief executive officer, and the board. It used to be that marketers’ greatest challenge was convincing a consumer to try their product and stick with it - beer, apps, cars, etc. But the challenges facing brands have gotten far more complex, and the stakes have grown higher when marketing in the "#FakeNews" era. Leaders must now address a highly polarized marketplace, in which consumers are energized by their tribal affiliations to take action for, or against, brands, based on their perceived values, beliefs, and biases. They also face grim potential consequences - ranging from share loss to job loss - when things go wrong. Should your brand take social and political stands or keep quiet? What are the benefits and risks of weighing in versus sitting on the sidelines? Is embracing brand purpose good for business or wasteful self-indulgence? Can a CEO’s misbehavior in a taxi cab one day bring a PR crisis the next? What happens when the public calls you out on a political position you didn’t even mean to take? This book tackles questions like these, outlining how a company must carefully navigate the waters of the "#FakeNews" era, where moral scrutiny and consumer outrage abound. Here you’ll find strategic and tactical guidance on how to prepare yourself for what may lie ahead, because you won’t have time to puzzle it out when you get that dreaded late-night call from PR. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Godfrey. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/125082/bk_acx0_125082_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Shuggie Bain (eBook, ePUB)
16,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Shuggie Bain is the unforgettable story of young Hugh "Shuggie" Bain, a sweet and lonely boy who spends his 1980s childhood in run-down public housing in Glasgow, Scotland. Thatcher's policies have put husbands and sons out of work, and the city's notorious drugs epidemic is waiting in the wings. Shuggie's mother Agnes walks a wayward path: she is Shuggie's guiding light but a burden for him and his siblings. She dreams of a house with its own front door while she flicks through the pages of the Freemans catalogue, ordering a little happiness on credit, anything to brighten up her grey life. Married to a philandering taxi-driver husband, Agnes keeps her pride by looking good-her beehive, make-up, and pearly-white false teeth offer a glamourous image of a Glaswegian Elizabeth Taylor. But under the surface, Agnes finds increasing solace in drink, and she drains away the lion's share of each week's benefits-all the family has to live on-on cans of extra-strong lager hidden in handbags and poured into tea mugs. Agnes's older children find their own ways to get a safe distance from their mother, abandoning Shuggie to care for her as she swings between alcoholic binges and sobriety. Shuggie is meanwhile struggling to somehow become the normal boy he desperately longs to be, but everyone has realized that he is "no right," a boy with a secret that all but him can see. Agnes is supportive of her son, but her addiction has the power to eclipse everyone close to her-even her beloved Shuggie. A heartbreaking story of addiction, sexuality, and love, Shuggie Bain is an epic portrayal of a working-class family that is rarely seen in fiction. Recalling the work of Édouard Louis, Alan Hollinghurst, Frank McCourt, and Hanya Yanagihara, it is a blistering debut by a brilliant novelist who has a powerful and important story to tell.

'On May 19, 2010, the Royal Thai Army deployed tanks, snipers, and war weapons to disperse the thousands of Red Shirts protesters who had taken over the commercial center of Bangkok to demand democratic elections and an end to inequality. Key to this mobilization were motorcycle taxi drivers, who slowed down, filtered, and severed mobility in the area, claiming a prominent role in national politics and ownership over the city and challenging state hegemony. Four years later, on May 20, 2014, the same army general who directed the dispersal staged a military coup, unopposed by protesters. How could state power have been so fragile and open to challenge in 2010 and yet so seemingly sturdy only four years later? How could protesters who had once fearlessly resisted military attacks now remain silent? Owners of the Map provides answers to these questions--central to contemporary political mobilizations around the globe--through an ethnographic study of motorcycle taxi drivers in Bangkok. Claudio Sopranzetti explores the unresolved tensions in the drivers' everyday lives, their migration trajectories, consumer desires, and political demands amidst the restructuring of Thai capitalism after the 1997 economic crisis. Reconstructing the entanglements between their everyday mobility and political mobilization, Sopranzetti reveals mobility not just as a strength of contemporary capitalism but also as one of its fragile spots, always prone to disruption by the people who sustain its channels but remain excluded from their benefits. In so doing, Owners of the Map advances an analysis of power that focuses not on the sturdiness of hegemony or the ubiquity of everyday resistance but on its potential fragility as well as the work needed for its maintenance.'--Provided by publisher.

'Mathew, as a member of the Organizing Committee of the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, has a unique perspective on the plight of immigrant taxi drivers. . . . Mathew explores the history of New York's taxicab industry, which has been in a cycle of corruption and reform since the Depression. The book culminates in an essay on globalization, immigration, racism, and the false veneer of multiculturalism in neoliberal society.' Booklist'Mathew describes the grim economics of driving the ubiquitous yellow cabs a job where most of the money goes to the cab company owners and where even minor problems, such as a few tickets or a short illness, can spell disaster for drivers.' Financial Times'Jump aboard this fast-paced ride through the ins and outs of the taxi industry in New York City and sit up front with the 40,000 cabbies who are overworked, underpaid, and routinely harassed, but have come together to improve their lot. . . . Fasten your seatbelt, grip the dashboard, and enjoy the trip.' Morning Star (U.K.)'Drivers' narratives in Taxi! can be riveting, inspiring, and upsetting all at the same time. . . . Their tales penetrate deep into the exploitive nature of the taxi industry. . . . In describing precisely how a group of seemingly powerless immigrant workers flexed their muscles, Taxi! critiques the labor movement and the broader movement for social justice.' Left TurnDriving a cab has long attracted recent immigrants and others at the margins of the economy. In recent years, however, the working conditions and the nature of cab ownership have changed. As Biju Mathew reveals in this lively account of the benefits and hardships in the lives of today's taxi drivers, just about everything has changed dramatically except the yellow paint. At once a passionate declaration of worker solidarity and an ethnography of work, Taxi! is a compelling narrative of the lives of immigrant taxi drivers in New York City. This updated edition covers the formation of the International Taxi Workers Alliance, the unusual collaboration with the Central Labor Council, and 2007 taxi strikes protesting New York City's plan requiring taxicabs to install costly global positioning systems and credit-card machines.'

* Country-by-country protocols and customs * International business musts and faux pas * Dining, hosting, gift giving, and more * Cross-cultural explorations Did you know: * In Senegal, you may extend your wrist-- or even an elbow-- in place of a handshake if you are holding something you cannot put down? * You risk offending your Saudi Arabian guests if, after seeing them off, you leave before they've disappeared from view? In today's high-stakes, highly charged international business world, you simply can't afford a misunderstood gesture, an ill-placed word, or a misinformed judgment. The Global Etiquette Guide to Africa and the Middle East shows both business and leisure travelers how to understand, appreciate, and manage-- as well as maximize the benefits of-- the myriad cultural differences that can exist between you and your African or Middle Eastern business hosts. This fact-filled cultural guidebook provides detailed advice on: ? Dining ? Drinking ? Speaking ? Eye contact ? Hailing a taxi ? Dress ? Negotiating ? Gift giving ? Conducting a meeting ? Tipping ? Holidays ? Dealing with authorities Just as customs vary greatly between the African/Middle Eastern region and the United States, so do they vary among the diverse nations of Africa and the Middle East.
