With a body in his office and a pocketful of secrets, Drum heads to Moscow. Eugenie is 17, with long legs, blonde hair, and an appetite for misery. Daughter of a corrupt millionaire, she has bounced around Europe’s finest boarding schools, and Chester Drum knows she’s trouble the moment he sees her tearing her blouse to implicate Ilya Alluliev, a Russian diplomat, in rape. The man came to give her a message, an envelope that quickly finds its way to Drum’s safe. Inside is an unsigned note claiming that a Russian Nobel Prize-winning poet is in grave danger. As soon as he reads it, Drum joins the poet on the Kremlin’s hit list. The next day, Drum goes to his office and finds Alluliev on the floor, shot dead. The police cannot help him; Drum will find answers only behind the Iron Curtain. At the height of the Cold War, Drum will risk his life for the sake of a fire-eyed teen with a heart made of ice. 1.

Twin to Twin is one 29-year-old mother's harrowing and inspiring adventure through a high-risk twin pregnancy. But this isn't only an audiobook about pregnancy. It's also an inspirational story to which all women can relate, especially when confronting any type of adversity.One minute, Crystal was sitting at a candlelight dinner in Paris with her husband. The next, she was back home in Houston, sitting in her OB-GYN's office concerned that she was having a second miscarriage. That wasn't the news he delivered. Instead, she found out she was pregnant with twins! Since Crystal and her husband, Ed, already had a two-year-old daughter, Abigail, she couldn't imagine why mothering twins would be all that different. But, after a family vacation at the beach, she finds out that her twins have a life-threatening condition called twin to twin transfusion syndrome. That means that Baby B is transfusing blood (disproportionately) to Baby A.Her OB says that Crystal is too high-risk to let out of his sight, so he sends her to the fifth floor of the Houston Medical Center for the duration of her pregnancy. Sitting alone in her hospital bed, Crystal wonders how she is going to pass the next few weeks away from her husband and precious daughter. She soon finds out as she embarks on an emotional roller coaster - from late-night emergency ultrasounds to hospital baby blessings, sprinkled with comic relief from nurses and hospital staff.Twin to Twin is a raw and inspirational story filled with tenderness, vulnerability, and humor. It chronicles the wildest, most terrifying and challenging year of Crystal's life that is also the most beautiful and eye-opening. Her hope is that it will bring strength to other women dealing with their own personal trials and tragedies so they can also triumph. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

Crossroads of Canopy: Titan's Forest Trilogy, B...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The highly-anticipated fantasy debut from Aurealis and Ditmar Award-winning author Thoraiya Dyer, set in a giant mythical rainforest controlled by living gods. At the highest level of a giant forest, 13 kingdoms fit seamlessly together to form the great city of Canopy. Thirteen goddesses and gods rule this realm and are continuously reincarnated into human bodies. Canopy's position in the sun, however, is not without its dark side. The nation's opulence comes from the labor of slaves, and below its fruitful boughs are two other realms: Understorey and Floor, whose deprived citizens yearn for Canopy's splendor. Unar, a determined but destitute young woman, escapes her parents' plot to sell her into slavery by being selected to serve in the Garden under the goddess Audblayin, ruler of growth and fertility. As a Gardener, she wishes to become Audblayin's next Bodyguard while also growing sympathetic towards Canopy's slaves. When Audblayin dies, Unar sees her opportunity for glory - at the risk of descending into the unknown dangers of Understorey to look for a newborn god. In its depths, she discovers new forms of magic, lost family connections, and murmurs of a revolution that could cost Unar her chance...or grant it by destroying the home she loves. 1.

Rock Bottom to Rock Star: Lessons from the Busi...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Can you remember that one time you got recognized or someone thanked you for your contribution to their life? You were a rock star, even for just one second. This book isn't about a charmed path to success or some untouchable fairy tale that nobody can relate to - this is about going from rock bottom to rock star, something that everybody can relate to. In his first book, Blair shared the brutally honest story of how he went from an at-risk youth sleeping on a mattress on the floor of a shack to a self-made multimillionaire by his early 20s. As his story became a national sensation, fans started asking him how they, too, could become entrepreneurs, take their careers to the next level, and achieve financial freedom. Rock Bottom to Rock Star answers those questions. Blair has battled extreme obstacles: life as a former gang member, balancing a demanding career with single parenthood, building and selling multiple companies, and making and losing tens of millions of dollars (sometimes all in one day). He wants to help others avoid the mistakes he made in the school of hard knocks, so he has compiled his unique advice for going from rock bottom to rock star in whatever field you choose to pursue. Much of his advice is counterintuitive and definitely not what you would learn in business school. Here's one example: "Don't believe your own hype. The moment you start celebrating, you've left the stage. It wasn't celebration that made you a rock star. It was hard work." If you're serious about making the most of your life and you're ready to become the "rock star next door" instead of just looking up to them, this may be the most rewarding book you'll ever hear. 1.

Looking to get back your vigor and energy for life? Revealed! The secrets to creating energy to do the things you want to and discover how to reclaim your youth starting today! Read on below to see exactly how you can enjoy the best of life in these golden years by starting and implementing an exercise routine that will have you feeling youthful once again! Do you wake up in the morning feeling lethargic? Do you wish you had the energy to run around with kids once again? Feel stiff and aching bones? If you answered yes to any one of those three questions then pay attention because what you are about to listen to in the next few minutes could change your life. Firstly, what exactly is the problem? Generally it is inactivity. Studies have shown that it only takes a few days of lying in bed to start losing your strength, flexibility, and balance. Once this happens, you are at risk of beginning the dreaded downward spiral. What is the downward spiral you ask? The downward spiral is the problem. Well, let's say you are feeling under the weather one day. You are retired, so end up spending a few days in bed or on the recliner watching TV. After a while the chores start piling up. Finally you get up one morning and oops, you lose your balance - falling on the floor! If your hip is not broken, you likely have a nasty bump somewhere. The pain causes you to spend more time in bed, day by day getting weaker and weaker. Then out comes the cane or walker. You begin to go outside of the house less and less because it is harder to walk. Daily chores and activities become increasingly more difficult like cooking, shopping, and taking a shower. You spend more time in the recliner and bed. Well, you get the picture. Moral of the story? Yes, you guessed it. Use your head, don't stay in bed! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Roy Wells.

Lean Supply Chain Management Essentials: A Fram...
91,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Presenting an alternate approach to supply chain management, Lean Supply Chain Management Essentials: A Framework for Materials Managers explains why the traditional materials planning environment, typically embodied by an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, is an ineffective support system for a company that wants to adopt Lean practices. It begins by defining supply chain management basics, including roles, objectives, and responsibilities from a traditional framework. Next, it describes Lean basics and explores the conflicts between Lean and the traditional framework. The book focuses on the materials management aspects of Lean, such as leveling work into the value stream, heijunka scheduling, standard work, and the concept of intervals, including Every Part Every Interval (EPEI). By combining traditional materials management tools, such as Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP), with Lean manufacturing approaches and applying them to different manufacturing environments, the authors clarify the logic behind why you are doing what you're doing with Lean components and how they fit together as a system. Specifically, they explain how to: * Determine which leveling strategy to use to smooth production * Calculate interval to determine lot sizes in various production environments * Apply Lean to purchasing, warehouse, and logistics areas * Use your value stream map for green initiatives and risk management * Replace capacity planning and shop floor control with visual factory, operator balance charts, EPEI, and plan for every part Illustrating why balancing demand and capacity is better than trying to balance supply and demand, the book includes a definitive chart that matches Lean tools to the planning and control charts that have served as the model for ERP systems. It integrates the principles learned from Toyota's fifty-plus-year journey with Lean principles to provide the up-to-date understanding required to approach the application of Lean to your supply chain with a methodology that allows for experimentation, learning, and continuous improvement.

Passarelli, D: High Probability Option Credit S...

Run time: 58 minutes.Credit spreads provide a low-risk way to profit from selling options without taking on excessive risks. However, traders may fail to maximize the potential of the strategy by not understanding all the components involved. Options expert and former floor trader Dan Passarelli explains the advantages of credit spreads; the dynamics of spread pricing; and his method for selecting low risk/high reward credit spreads. Three factors drive the value of a credit spread: time decay, the direction of the underlying stock, and volatility. While credit spreads naturally profit from time decay, they lose value if the market moves the wrong way or if volatility increases. The challenge is to lessen risk factors by choosing the right stock, the right options expiration month, and the right strike prices. Passarelli provides his insights into meeting these challenges based on his long experience as an options floor trader. He explains why it's vitally important to choose a stock that has just bounced off a support/resistance point, has low implied volatility, has strike prices at or just beyond key support/resistance areas, and will expire in the next two weeks to two months. Passarelli provides a number examples to show precisely how he uses this method in actual markets. Viewers will learn: - Understand why option credit spreads are a great strategy for generating income, without taking undue risk. - How to put the factors that drive options prices to work for you, without having to understand complex formulas or mathematics. - How to select the right stocks, the right strike prices, and the right expirations to maximize the benefits of credit spreads. - How to manage every step of an options spread position and to capture profits at the right time. Passarelli has a gift for explaining options in a logical, easy-to-understand, and realistic manner. This video will give viewers a solid foundation into how to use option credit spreads the same way as professional traders.
