Thomas Jefferson and Slavery - Was He Really an Opponent of the Institution?: Franziska Massner
Recent years have seen an explosion of interest in and interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. Its authority and stature are routinely invoked by voices from every point on the political spectrum, with frequent references to the Founding Fathers and their true ´´intent.´´ What really was their true intent? As these 12 surprising lectures show, many of those Founding Fathers - including Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry - were highly critical of the new Constitution and staunchly opposed it when it was first put forth for ratification by the states as a replacement for the Articles of Confederation. The debate over the Constitution raged for the better part of two years, and beneath its rhetorical flourishes lay not only the longest and most profound civic argument in our nation´s history, but also a civics lesson that deserves to endure for all time. It was an argument that would result not only in the ratification of the Constitution, but also in what that Constitution would become. Professor Pangle takes you into this debate. You´ll see which Founders opposed the new Constitution, which Founders led the battle for it, and how both sides helped define the result. In an era when contemporary arguments on the national stage so often mirror the same conflicts debated by the Founders, our own reenactment of that original debate can enrich our ability to be active and participating citizens.

This book is the most in-depth and detailed guide created on teaching players how to crush their lane opponent in League of Legends. It´s a bold statement, but I can back it up. The book will teach you everything you need to know about completely dominating over your lane matchup (which, by the way, sometimes feels better than winning). I´ve tried extremely hard to break down every micro-aspect of over 60 of the game mechanics that come into play during laning. I´ve broken down every single concept into the most simple, understandable terms that even a new player will grasp. Believe it or not, there are that many possible micro and macro aspects that go into laning. It´s an art. Once you listen to this book, you will be aware of things you never really stopped to think about before. If this book doesn´t get you prepared for any possible situation you might face during laning...nothing will. Here are a few of the things you are going to learn once you get the book: The five-step formula to winning every trade in lane, which works 100% of the times How to build up huge advantages over your opponent by capitalizing on the small mistakes they make How to manage the minion waves in the same way Challenger and Pro players do it How to never depend on your jungler´s actions anymore What to do when you are behind in lane, and how to actually come ahead - how to stomp your opponent to the point of completely tilting the whole enemy team How to deal with any possible situation in the laning phase How to abuse your advantage and get the maximum out of every situation Enjoy the progress you are going to experience in your ranked games! ungekürzt.

There are many books on leadership. What the CEO Really Wants from You is one of the few to address the question that is uppermost in the mind of any manager: What he should be doing to make his or her boss his partner rather than his opponent. We spend most of our lives at work or thinking about it. Starting from a young age, fired by boundless energy and optimism, we launch into our careers sure of our abilities. Yet, things do not always turn out as we expect they would. It is not our abilities alone. The business environment is one of change and ambiguity. It is no easy task for any manager to negotiate the journey to success. As Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever, points out in his foreword, partnerships with others, but above all with your direct boss and organization, are more important than ever before. Not only that, a good boss has an instinct for the right people, and getting them to do better. A good manager, by eliciting his help, helps himself. Few people are better qualified to guide on this journey than R. Gopalakrishnan. He brings 45 years of experience to this subject in some of the most challenging jobs. In this immensely practical book informed by the wisdom he has gleaned over the years, he offers the listener the benefit of all he has learnt, summarized in the four As - Accomplishment, Affability, Advocacy, and Authenticity. This is a book that will be of immense use to any manager, and one that just might bring him the answers it takes years to find - what the CEO really expects from him. ungekürzt. Language: English.

Finally, a serious and candid conversation about raw milk, unlike any that has ever occurred in the many years since raw milk became a subject of contentious debate. The Raw Milk Answer Book raises the most difficult questions surrounding our most controversial food - the risk of getting seriously ill, whether it should be fed to children, the credibility of European research indicating raw milk has important healing powers - and answers them in calm, nonideological terms that are understandable to beginners and experienced drinkers alike. It is an engaging conversation, unblinking in its focus on real-world data and unafraid to take issue with wild claims on either side of the raw milk controversy. Raw milk is so controversial that obtaining believable information about it has become nearly impossible. On one side proponents often portray raw milk as a miracle food. In their view it strengthens the immune system so as to reduce our incidence of health problems small and large - from colds and flus to cancer, diabetes, asthma, and allergies - and it is extremely safe to boot. On the other side, opponents portray raw milk as having no more health or nutritional value than the pasteurized variety that can be bought in any supermarket. They also view it as one of the most dangerous foods known to mankind - so inherently dangerous it can kill you. Obviously both sides can´t be correct. What is the real story? The Raw Milk Answer Book provides the real story by answering more than 200 of the most common questions that come up about raw milk. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: David E.
