The Biggest Untold Economic Story of Our Time Here is the truth that the powerful Dirty Energy public relations machine doesn´t want you to know: the ascent of solar energy is upon us. The production of solar-generated electricity has risen exponentially in the last few years, and employment in the solar industry has doubled since 2009. Meanwhile, electricity from coal has declined to pre-World War II levels as the fossil fuel industry continues to shed jobs. Danny Kennedy systematically refutes the lies spread by solar´s opponents-that it is expensive, inefficient, and unreliable; that it is kept alive only by subsidies; that it can´t be scaled; and many other untruths. He shows that we need a rooftop revolution to break the entrenched power of the coal, oil, nuclear, and gas industries. Solar energy can create more jobs, return our nation to prosperity, and ensure the sustainability and safety of our planet. Now is the time to move away from the dangerous energy sources of the past and unleash the amazing potential of the sun. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Pierce.

Tresa was taken by the aliens, but she escaped. Changed. Powerful. Terrifying. With the only thing she has left in the world - her dad - and her little nomadic band of humans, she battles the very aliens that made her into the creature she is now, using the powers they gave her. She is a formidable opponent. When she meets Roman - angry, sullen, and yet loyal above all else - they are forced to come to a compromise to keep their teams alive. They don’t like each other, but it’s tolerable. Almost. Danger is something they live with on a daily basis. Starvation, fear, pain. But there’s a darkness coming they can’t prepare for, something that will threaten to tear apart everything they’ve built. There’s something coming for that darkness, something far more terrifying than Tresa. Never trust beautiful things. This is a spin-off to the number one best-selling With These Wings and can be enjoyed on its own. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jane Boyer.

The thrilling story of men and women caught up in the death throes of Nazi Germany, struggling to maintain those things precious to them - life, an end to killing, and even sanity itself. Colonel Johann Faust has lost everyone he ever loved and feels he is going inexorably insane. He hears the haunting voice of his dead fiancée and the demons that roar through his mind as he perfects a plan to save Nazi Germany from defeat and insure a greater and deadlier new world war. Captain Dieter Neukirk, once a protégé of Faust’s, is more concerned with saving the lives of his remaining men than in sacrificing them in a fanatical last stand. Meanwhile, Elsa Klein, Dieter’s lover and the chief social worker at a Berlin hospital, is engaged in her own dangerous work, providing medical care and identity papers to hidden Jews in the city. American Captain Mack Mackenzie, pulled from a military hospital before his wounds are healed, is assigned to investigate reports of a secret Nazi operation. Wanting only to make it home alive, Mack finds himself in a life-and-death struggle with unlikely allies and a ferociously determined opponent. Americans and Germans alike are drawn to a hilltop in the remote German countryside, where they find themselves between powerful armies and forced into a terrible decision that could end one war or begin a new one. 1.

Two major epic poems came from ancient Greece and had the power to shape our culture for centuries. They are both attributed to the blind poet Homer, and are called Iliad and Odyssey. The Odyssey is the story of the Greek hero Odysseus, or Ulysses, who began a journey home after the fall of Troy. It will take him ten years of marvelous and terrible encounters before he finally reaches his native city, where everyone assumed he was dead. There will he find his wife Penelope, famously weaving and unweaving a never-ending tapestry while obnoxious suitors are competing for her hand. Once again, Odysseus will have to outsmart his opponents in order to be reunited with his family. The Iliad and the Odyssey are the oldest extant works of Western literature. They are of tremendous cultural importance, and their magic is still strongly alive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katie Haigh.
