Sharing the City:Community Participation in Urban Management John Abbott
Here´s what you´ll get with this three-audiobook package: Lying and Telling the Truth, Part I: Lying is when you say something that isn´t true but convince people it is. For instance, you may tell your mom your baby brother took the cookie from the cookie jar when in fact it was you who really took the cookie from the cookie jar. You probably told your mom it was your baby brother (or in some cases, baby sister). They took the cookie from the cookie jar so you wouldn´t get in trouble for stealing the cookie before dinnertime. You may not get in trouble for taking the cookie. But if your mom believes you, then it will be your baby brother or sister who gets in trouble for taking the cookie. This is why it is always important to tell the truth, because even though telling a lie may keep you from getting in trouble, it generally means someone else is going to get in trouble for the lie you told, not to mention they will have their feelings hurt. Lying and Telling the Truth, Part II: Let´s get curious about lying and telling the truth together; curiosity makes reading and learning super fun for everyone. You’ve probably heard it said plenty of times that lying is a bad thing to do. But why? Sometimes it may seem that a teeny, tiny lie could get you out of big trouble, and it wouldn’t really hurt anyone - so if that’s the case, what’s wrong with lying? This in-depth report on lying is kid-friendly and fun, packed with real-life examples on the dangers of not telling the truth. What may seem like a harmless lie can actually hurt a lot of people - including yourself - and turn out much worse in the end than if you had just told the truth to begin with! Is it ever okay to lie in any situation? This is the place to find out! Sharing: Learning to share is a very important part of growing up. It helps young people to develop empathy and understanding, not to me... 1. Language: English. Narrator: TJ Spehar. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/124672/bk_acx0_124672_sample.mp3.

Sharing the Wealth is the incredible true story of how a $40 a week baker became a multi-millionaire owner of a Super Bowl NFL team and an unprecedented philanthropist. The road Alex Spanos took to riches was not a common one. Without the advantages of money, background, education, or connections, Spanos relied on his own heart and determination to achieve success. Spanos recounts how his first gamble was his hardest and most important. As a husband and father of one child, with a second on the way, Spanos was barely making ends meet working in his father´s bakery. When his father refused to give him a raise to equal the going rate for bakers, he walked out, vowing never to return to his father´s employ. His first venture, selling bologna sandwiches to migrant workers, was earning $700,000 annually just five years after he left the bakery. He ultimately made his fortune in the construction business, becoming the #1 builder of apartments in America. Sharing the Wealth also shares the personal side of Alex Spanos. He struck lasting friendships with such celebrities as Bob Hope and Telly Savalas. He was given the key to the city of San Francisco, he provided relief funds after floods ravaged Northern California, and assisted with humanitarian aid when an earthquake struck Greece. Whenever a need arose, Alex Spanos was there to help. Finally, Spanos shares his odyssey of first buying an NFL team, and then ultimately reaching the Super Bowl. 1. Language: English.

When Fawn is kidnapped by one of these creatures, it is up to Dag, an older Lakewalker, heavy with sorrows and responsibilities, to rescue her.

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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rodney Henson.
