The Pep Talk is a sports story - with solid business applications - about an underdog football team defeating a formidable opponent. Typically, a novelette of this type peaks at the end of the game, but it's in the pep talk where the real story begins. A stranger convinces the coach of a team with a 24-game losing streak to allow him to give a pep talk before they go up against a winning team. The underdog team is victorious because of the influence of this stranger. The pep talk and the actual game are intriguing, but the real story begins 29 years later when the coach, suffering from a brain tumor, discovers the stranger had prophesized specific events that occurred in the ensuing game. Is there a logical explanation? Is there a spiritual explanation? The answers to these questions capture the reader's attention to the very end. Language: English. Narrator: uncredited.

The Pink Pistol is about a female sheriff. She became sheriff after her father, who was sheriff, was killed. She had been her father's deputy and it was the logical choice to step in as sheriff. She's a spunky girl, but still has a hard time overcoming the prejudice against a female being sheriff. She doesn't take any guff from anybody. Her first day on the job, she had to face down the local bully. It seemed the whole town was watching for her to fail. However, she was up to the task, hitting her opponent in the head with her 45. As a joke, the town council presented her with a pink pistol, ordered directly from the Colt factory with specific instructions to make it pink. They thought it would embarrass her and she wouldn't stay on as sheriff. However, she surprised them by keeping the job. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Meg Cowan.

I know that I am intelligent because I know that I know nothing. - Socrates Ancient Greece has laid way for some of the most influential people, systems and stories of our civilization. It is hard to believe on one hand because technology-wise the Greeks were very primitive, yet on the other hand they were essentially on of the earliest roots of Western civilization. Even today logic and argument are taught as one of the most effective skills to possess. Many people can say something is logical or illogical without really understanding the principle behind it but this is an age-old problem and one that three mastered in Ancient Greece. The system of argument was really formalized in Ancient Greek culture. People would gather around to see arguments then, like we would to see a sporting event today. The difference between sports is that you weren't playing for touchdowns but instead playing to cement philosophical systems. The only way to win was to break an argument down logically and prove your opponent wrong. This was such a popular event that some of their names are even remembered now. When we consider the people of Ancient Greece though, there are four that come to mind, who are Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Alexander (the Great). Of the four of them, perhaps the most is known of Aristotle and Alexander, but the interesting thing is the connection that these four have as teacher and pupil. If you connect the relationships beginning with Alexander you will see that he was Aristotle's student, who attended Plato's school and Plato was one of the major students of Socrates. ungekürzt.
