(2013/ShuffleOne) 14 tracks (36:44) Traditional Country Dancehall Music - Highlight!***** - Jeff Woolsey was raised on traditional country music in the honkytonks, on the North side of Houston, Texas. He spent many Saturday nights listening to his step-dad’s band play all the great songs from Ray Price, Johnny Bush, George Jones, Mel Tillis, Faron Young and the many other great country music artists from the ‘50’s,‘60’s and ‘70’s. Jeff would sit on the side of the stage and watch as all of the dancers would pass by him and when one song was over…they would stand in the middle of the dance floor waiting for the next tune. Jeff sang his first song when he was four years old….Charley Pride’s, ´´Is Anybody Goin’ To San Antone”. From that moment on…he was hooked on singing and hooked on country music. He couldn’t wait until the next Saturday night when he could do it all over again.
Sirens were blaring. They hurt his ears, but he pushed on. The floor in the corridor was shiny and black, reflecting the white light from the pods stacked next to the walls on either side. He glanced from left to right as he ran, searching the screens next to the pods frantically. The markings flashing on them were in the language of his captors, but he´d spent enough time among them to know what they meant. He´d learned early on that if your masters think you´re an idiot, they let the reins slip. He was anything but an idiot. After a while, they speak openly in front of you, like you´re nothing but a piece of furniture. One slip leads to another, and pretty soon you know everything about their deviant empire. He didn´t have a name, had never been given one. Mostly he was referred to as ´´you´´ or ´´slave´´, sometimes no coherent word at all but just a grunting sound. His masters were fat and lazy. Well, now their laziness had come to bite them on their fat asses. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dorinda Ravish. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/080510/bk_acx0_080510_sample.mp3.

An ode to ´´Put the Damn Guns Down´´, this is National Book Award finalist and New York Times best seller Jason Reynolds´ fiercely stunning novel that takes place in 60 potent seconds - the time it takes a kid to decide whether or not he´s going to murder the guy who killed his brother. A cannon. A strap. A piece. A biscuit. A burner. A heater. A chopper. A gat. A hammer A tool for RULE. Or, you can call it a gun. That´s what 15-year-old Will has shoved in the back waistband of his jeans. See, his brother Shawn was just murdered. And Will knows the rules. No crying. No snitching. Revenge. That´s where Will´s now heading, with that gun shoved in the back waistband of his jeans, the gun that was his brother´s gun. He gets on the elevator, seventh floor, stoked. He knows who he´s after. Or does he? As the elevator stops on the sixth floor, on comes Buck. Buck, Will finds out, is who gave Shawn the gun before Will took the gun. Buck tells Will to check that the gun is even loaded. And that´s when Will sees that one bullet is missing. And the only one who could have fired Shawn´s gun was Shawn. Huh. Will didn´t know that Shawn had ever actually used his gun. Bigger huh. Buck is dead. But Buck´s in the elevator? Just as Will´s trying to think this through, the door to the next floor opens. A teenage girl gets on, waves away the smoke from Dead Buck´s cigarette. Will doesn´t know her, but she knew him. Knew. When they were eight. And stray bullets had cut through the playground, and Will had tried to cover her, but she was hit anyway, and so what she wants to know, on that fifth floor elevator stop, is, what if Will, Will with the gun shoved in the back waistband of his jeans, misses. And so it goes, the whole long way down, as the elevator stops on each floor, and at each stop someone connected to his brother gets on to give Will a piece to a bigger story than the one he thi... 1.

The zombie apocalypse continues.... I did the first thing that came to my mind, and that was to kick the shell in the head as hard as I could. Although there was an audible snap, the head moved very little. The putrid, undead thing continued trying to grab hold of me, but I managed to evade its hands and keep kicking. At the same moment, I heard a squish sound and saw blood start pouring from the head onto the yellowish tile floor. Lawrence was standing next to me. He had his gun out and pointed at the stairs. The sound of shells slowly grew louder. And just like that, the wave of bodies began pouring down the stairs. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Todd Menesses.

Soon Emily is accepting Graham´s invitations to every social event on the ship. Two nights later the bubbly couple announces their engagement, but the news is quickly overshadowed the next morning by the discovery of Graham´s body with an ice pick protruding from his chest… Between hiding a furry fugitive, flirting with Emily´s nephew Robbie, and baiting the hook for a clever murderer, Jaine is about to dive into her most dangerous case yet… 1.

Andy Stern, the former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), spent four years traveling the country and asking economists, futurists, labor leaders, CEOs, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, and political leaders to help envision the US economy 25 to 30 years from now. He vividly reports on people who are analyzing and creating this new economy - such as investment banker Steve Berkenfeld; David Cote, the CEO of Honeywell International; and Andy Grove of Intel. Through these stories, we come to a stark and deeper understanding of the toll technological progress will continue to take on jobs and income and its inevitable effect on tens of millions of people. But there is hope for our economy and future. The foundation of economic prosperity for all Americans, Stern believes, is a universal basic income. The idea of a universal basic income for all Americans is controversial, but American attitudes are shifting. Stern has been a game changer throughout his career, and his next goal is to create a movement that will force the political establishment to take action against something that many on both the right and the left believe is inevitable. 1.
