In this social-media frenzied world every individual and company needs a CSO - a Chief Story Officer. People and companies today are losing their ability to connect with others in meaningful, authentic ways. Visit any shopping mall, college campus, or city park, and what do you see? People are focused on their smartphones. They are zombies walking around with their heads down, staring at their screens, bumping into other zombies, but never engaging in conversation. People have been drawn away from communicating through conversation. We are quickly becoming conduits in just another social distribution channel, ingesting and regurgitating others´ links and tweets and shares, and then shutting down without any authentic connection between human beings with souls and emotions. Sadly, our world has settled into this. It´s time to wake up all the zombies. It´s time to start becoming authentic, connected human beings. Language: English. Narrator: Rodney Henson.

Told by a former MMA combatant whose promising career came to an unexpected end due to a freak sparring session injury, Saleh Stevens´ History of MMA: From Rome to Today covers the many critical influences that ultimately shaped the practice of mixed martial arts as it is understood today. In his first book, the author begins by offering his insight into the role of the earliest practitioners of pankration, a sport that was included in the original Olympic Games. Starting with a centuries-old sport and style of combat mythologized in the stories of a number of Greek and Roman heroes, Stevens goes on to detail how MMA came to grow out of a variety of concepts and philosophies coming from seemingly disparate sources. From Japan to England, Brazil, the United States and beyond, the history of MMA frequently crosses international borders and is often adopted with great zeal by those who encounter a teacher capable of sharing the principles of an approach to martial arts that favors adaptability over rigidity. In presenting the history of MMA all the way through the contemporary era of UFC and The Ultimate Fighter, Stevens offers a number of interesting anecdotes in addition to the detailed overviews aimed at providing the listener with the proper background and context. Whether it is President Theodore Roosevelt´s regular practice of engaging in MMA-style training sessions at the White House or Muhammad Ali´s boasting in advance of his match with Antonio Inoki, Saleh Stevens´ History of MMA: From Rome to Today succeeds in providing an entertaining and informative look into the people, organizations and events leading up to MMA´s rapid growth in popularity over the last decade. ungekürzt.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, course: British Literature, language: English, abstract: Violence and the media have been sharing a long history together. This is primarily because people have always been interested in the question whether violence in the media increases the aggressive potential of real human beings. Although this question, according to Kunczik and Zipfel, cannot be answered satisfactorily, great parts of the worlds population blame violence in the media for being responsible for the sway in our nowadays society (399). Nonetheless, violence rapidly gains more and more importance in the pop culture which also affects the productions of media corporations (Ahrens 125). Action and horror movies often cause rushes to the cinemas and theaters worldwide. Bookstores sell thousands of thrillers every year and the names of authors such as Steven King or John Sinclair are famous throughout the globe. However, also smaller markets like the comics market are crowded with whole series containing a huge amount of violence and are, therefore, recommended for mature readers only. One graphic novel which filled itself to the brim with violence, cursing and things most would never dream of publishing (Batson, Vertigo - The Birth of an Imprint), is Vertigos Preacher (see fig. 1) by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. The protagonist, priest Jesse Custer, accidentally merges with a mysterious creature called Genesis. From that point on, he possesses the power of God. Together with his ex-girlfriend Tulip and the Irish vampire Cassidy, he starts a horrible and dark journey across the USA in order to find God, who has abdicated heavens throne. As already mentioned, Preacher contains a lot of violence which makes it according to Korsun the most intense adult comic in ages (44). Hence, the intensity of violence is located to a large extend in the degree to which it is presented as immediate an impactful on the viewer (King, Killingly funny 129). Nevertheless, King also argues that a huge amount of immediate violence can distract the audience (Killingly funny 129). To keep their comic entertaining, Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon had to establish certain narrative techniques which helped them to distance their readership from Preachers violent content. This leads to the circumstance that Ennis and Dillons work does not only contain hostile violence, but also a more humorous, almost kind violence.
