Dave Johnson´s dreams have come true. He´s taken Seattle by storm as Powerhouse, a metal-clad crime fighter. His awesome array of powers has the underworld on the run, his charitable efforts are a success, and he has a popular comic book. When his publisher is bought out, he´s given every fan´s dream: he´s tasked with creating his own line of comic books. His biggest problem is his tendency to attract campy, wannabe ´´supervillains” who aren´t worthy opponents. Mitch ´´the Pharaoh” Farrow wants to turn Dave´s dream into a nightmare. Mitch´s job is to spread cynicism ahead of an interdimensional alien invasion. The aliens´ king has promised to cure Mitch´s dying daughter when he takes over and Mitch will do anything to save her. He uses every tool at his disposal, from a massive media smear machine to a force field bubble that crushes its victim into atoms. With the help of new allies and old friends, Powerhouse strives to protect his family and the citizens of Seattle from the forces of cynicism. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scot Wilcox.

Everything you need to know when deciding who you want to be the next President of the United States. This piece endeavors to highlight Hillary Rodham-Clinton accomplishments and qualifications to be President of the United States. While her criticisms and scandals are not avoided, they are also not rehashed ad-nauseum. Furthermore, we explore her political philosophy which is rooted in the Machiavellian ´´realpolitik´´ school of politics. Whether one loves, loathes, or is indifferent about America´s female political powerhouse, it cannot be denied that her list of qualifications and accomplishments to serve as the most powerful person on earth is an impressive one. Moreover, there are two brief lessons on the nature of Machiavellian political theory and the nature of fascism, the latter being a political platform not so subtly espoused by her opponent Donald Trump. Questions about her political morality are raised where appropriate; however, in turn, the Republican and media witch hunts against her and Bill Clinton are addressed as well. It is a clear, factual, and concise effort to push the undecided voter into Hillary´s camp, as we also illustrate the danger presented by Trump´s brand of neo-fascist con-artist politics. In the end, November is just around the corner and the fate of America and the planet for the next four years rides on who is sworn into the presidency in January 2017. 1. Language: English.

When superstar athlete Jim Thorpe and football legend Pop Warner met in 1904 at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania, they forged one of the winningest teams in American football history. Called ´´the team that invented football´´, they took on the best opponents of their day, defeating much more privileged schools such as Harvard and Army in a series of breathtakingly close calls, genius plays, and bone-crushing hard work. But this is not just an underdog story. It´s an unflinching look at the persecution of Native Americans and its intersection with the beginning of one of the most beloved - and exploitative - pastimes in America, expertly told by nonfiction powerhouse Steve Sheinkin. 1.
