Gist is a powerful book that reviews and examines what the journey to adulthood entails, along with a clear look at those parenting efforts that have proven not to work over the years. ´´Many hours and much emotional energy are spent in parenting strategies where nothing positive is produced.´´ Gist is a fascinating look at many aspects of life that wouldn´t typically be associated with parenting. But the result is a new way to think about parenting that is effective, efficient, and enjoyable. The audiobook´s focus on life-readiness offers parents a new lens through which to see their parenting interactions and translates to an approach that eliminates many of the power struggles and ineffective patterns that can rob families of much of their joy. 1.

Als ungleiches Dream-Team wider Willen laufen Cary Grant und Tony Curtis unter der Regie von Komödien-Spezialist Blake Edwards (´´Frühstück bei Tiffany´´) auf hoher See zu Höchstform auf.Dezember 1941: Es sieht schlecht aus für Captain Shermans USS Sea Tiger. Das U-Boot wurde beim Angriff der Japaner schwer getroffen und der oberste Kommandant Matt Sherman muss kämpfen, um das U-Boot vor der Verschrottung zu bewahren. Zum Wiederaufbau wird ihm Lieutenant Nicholas Holden zur Seite gestellt - ein Lebemann, dessen Eskapaden die Sea Tiger auf höchst ungewöhnliche Kurse bringen. Als das Schiff auch noch einen rosa Anstrich erhält, läuft die Moral schließlich vollkommen aus dem Ruder.Angeblich war Cary Grant, der hier auch als Koproduzent agierte, von Tony Curtis Parodie auf ihn in MANCHE MÖGENS HEISS (1959) derart begeistert, dass er Curtis unbedingt als Co-Star an seiner Seite sehen wollte. UNTERNEHMEN PETTICOAT wurde ein Kassenschlager und erhielt Nominierungen für einen Oscar (für das Beste Original-Drehbuch) und einen Golden Globe.

From Mike Pesca, host of the popular Slate podcast The Gist, comes the greatest sports minds imagining how the world would change if a play, trade, injury, or referee´s call had just gone the other way. No announcer ever proclaimed: ´´Up Rises Frazier!´´ ´´Havlicek commits the foul, trying to steal the ball!´´, or ´´The Giants Lose the Pennant, The Giants Lose The Pennant!´´ Such moments are indelibly etched upon the mind of every sports fan. Or rather, they would be, had they happened. Sports are notoriously games of inches, and when we conjure the thought of certain athletes - like Bill Buckner or Scott Norwood - we can´t help but apply a mental tape measure to the highlight reels of our minds. Players, coaches, and of course fans, obsess on the play when they ask, ´´What if?´´ Upon Further Review is the first audiobook to answer that question. Upon Further Review is an audiobook of counterfactual sporting scenarios. Inside the listener will hear expertly reported histories, where one small event is flipped on its head, and the resulting ripples are carefully documented, the likes of... What if the US boycotted Hitler´s Olympics? What if Bobby Riggs beat Billie Jean King? What if Bucky Dent popped out at the foot of the Green Monster? What if Drew Bledsoe never got hurt? Upon Further Review takes classic arguments conducted over pints in a pub and places them in the hands of dozens of writers, athletes, and historians. From turning points that every sports fan rues or celebrates to the forgotten would-be inflection points that defined sports, Upon Further Review answers age-old questions, and settles the score, even if the score bounced off the crossbar. Full cast of narrators includes Shira Springer, Peter Thomas Fornatale, Jesse Eisenberg, Ben Lindbergh, Jonathan Hock, Mary Pilon, Steve Kornacki, Louisa Thomas, Nate DiMeo, Jeremy Schaap, Neil Pain, Will Leit 1.

Driven by determination and desire, the alluring Liliana and Calhoun’s sister, Eliza, prove themselves fierce and loyal in the face of the onslaught.With Wilkins and his hirelings closing in, paid guns and lawyers may not be enough to defend BlueHill.
