If your pantry was empty, your children hungry, your electricity cut off for nonpayment, and you saw no prospect of support, what would you do? For a decade in a rural Tennessee community, you went to a shabby building behind a church and found Laura Willis. Running a program to help the needy, Laura discovered a world of people she never knew: the lonely and unemployed, chronically poor families, and middle-class folks surprised to be struggling in a great recession. And to each she offered a bag of groceries, a compassionate ear, and a heart of love. Taking a tiny food pantry and watching it grow to feed hundreds, Laura learned about her own hunger for God and began to discern her own spiritual directions, learning how her calling card - a bag of groceries - could be a gift to others and to herself of abundance and grace. ungekürzt.

Traditional network television programming has always followed the same script: executives approve a pilot, order a trial number of episodes, and broadcast them, expecting viewers to watch a given show on their television sets at the same time every week. But then came Netflix´s House of Cards. Netflix gauged the show´s potential from data it had gathered about subscribers´ preferences, ordered two seasons without seeing a pilot, and uploaded the first thirteen episodes all at once for viewers to watch whenever they wanted on the devices of their choice. In this book, Michael Smith and Rahul Telang, experts on entertainment analytics, show how the success of House of Cards upended the film and TV industries - and how companies like Amazon and Apple are changing the rules in other entertainment industries, notably publishing and music. We´re living through a period of unprecedented technological disruption in the entertainment industries. Just about everything is affected: pricing, production, distribution, piracy. Smith and Telang discuss niche products and the long tail, product differentiation, price discrimination, and incentives for users not to steal content. To survive and succeed, businesses have to adapt rapidly and creatively. Smith and Telang explain how. How can companies discover who their customers are, what they want, and how much they are willing to pay for it? Data. The entertainment industries, must learn to play a little ´´moneyball.´´ The bottom line: follow the data.

During a career that spanned parts of four decades, Steve Spingola´s reputation as a tenacious homicide detective earned him the moniker ´´the sleuth with the proof.´´ Now, the investigator with a national reputation for excellence takes listeners on de facto ride along to revisit unsolved murders, reminisce about Milwaukee´s underworld, and examine the suspicious drowning deaths of young men in the hard-drinking college town of Lacrosse, Wisconsin. ´´In a four-part segment entitled ´´The Detectives in the Rye,´´ Steve Spingola does an outstanding job detailing why the strangulation murders of prostitutes and others involved in the vice underground are difficult to solve,´´ said retired Milwaukee PD detective Larry Powalisz. ´´In great detail, he explains how killers with a slightly different signature often target those from the same victimology demographic.´´ Spingola also takes a critical look at the post 9/11 world of government surveillance, including cellular telephone and credit card tracking, the spread of facial recognition software, the storing of all emails and telephonic communication, private sector DNA sharing, and intrusive drone technologies that threaten to undermine the privacy and liberty of all Americans. ´´As a lieutenant of detectives, Steve Spingola taught me that an investigator´s real pursuit is the truth,´´ wrote Eric Donaldson, a 20-year Milwaukee Police Department veteran. ´´When explaining the facts behind a story, he brings skill and acumen to the table. In a crowded literary genre, authenticity is king and Steve Spingola brings it.´´ ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Barry Newman.

What does it mean to become a man in the Arctic today? Becoming Inummarik focuses on the lives of the first generation of men born and raised primarily in permanent settlements. Forced to balance the difficulties of schooling, jobs, and money that are a part of village life with the conflicting demands of older generations and subsistence hunting, these men struggle to chart their life course and become inummariit - genuine people.Peter Collings presents an accessible, intelligent, humorous, and sensitive account of Inuit men who are no longer youths, but not yet elders. Based on over twenty years of research conducted in Ulukhaktok, Northwest Territories, Becoming Inummarik is a profound and nuanced look at contemporary Inuit life that shows not just what Inuit men do, but who they are. Collings recounts experiences from his immersion in the daily lives of Ulukhaktok´s men - from hunting and sharing meals to playing cards and grocery shopping - to demonstrate how seemingly mundane activities provide revelations about complex issues such as social relationships, status, and maturity. He also reflects on the ethics of immersive anthropological research, the difficulties of balancing professional and personal relationships with informants, and the nature of knowledge in Inuit culture.Becoming Inummarik shows that while Inuit born into a modern society see themselves as different from their parents´ generation, their adherence to traditional ideas about life ensures that they remain fully Inuit even as their community has witnessed drastic upheaval.
