Neither he nor his earnest younger sister, Maud, are prepared for the turbulent mix of joy and pain their new life in Kenya will bring.Their father is Director of Kenyan Railways, a role it is assumed Theo will inherit. But when he meets enchanting American heiress Sylvie de Croÿ and her charismatic, reckless companion, Freddie Hamilton, his aspirations turn in an instant.Sylvie and Freddie’s charm is magnetic, and Theo is welcomed into the heart of their inner circle: rich, glamorous expatriates, infamous for their hedonistic lifestyles. Yet behind their intoxicating allure lies a more powerful cocktail of lust, betrayal, deceit and violence that he realises he cannot avoid. As dark clouds gather over Kenya’s future and his own, he must find a way back to his family - to Maud - before it is too late. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Jack.

Hailed by the New York Times as coming "closer than anyone to writing The Great American Novel", Lore Segal stuns with this passionate love story of a refugee from Hitler's Europe and a witty, hard-drinking black intellectual. For Ilka Weissnix, everything is new. Having recently arrived in the United States, she is determined to escape the immigrant communities of New York and boards a train headed west to discover "the real America". She finds Carter Bayoux "sitting on a stool in a bar in the desert, across from the railroad." Older, portly, experienced, and black, Carter is magnetic. To Ilka, he exemplifies the values and cultures of a changing America. In order to understand her new country and her new love, Ilka throws herself into Carter's dizzying world, nurses him through his bouts of depression and his alcoholism, and becomes fascinated by stories of his amorous past. But Carter's ghosts are ever present, and soon Ilka finds herself torn between saving him and saving her own future. With a foreword by Stanley Crouch, Her First American is the poignant story of an immigrant experience in a country of endless possibilities and of a rich and breathtaking love that is doomed from the start. 1.

Every Little Step: My Story , Hörbuch, Digital,...

In Every Little Step, Brown will for the first time tell the full story of his life and set the record straight, particularly about his relationship with Whitney Houston. Bobby Brown has been one of the most compelling American artists of the past 30 years, a magnetic and talented figure who successfully crossed over many musical genres, including R&B and hip-hop as well as the mainstream. In the late 1980s, the former front man of New Edition had a wildly successful solo career - especially with the launch of Don't Be Cruel - garnering multiple hits on the Billboard top 10 list as well as several Grammy, American Music, and Soul Train awards. But Brown put his career on hold to be with the woman he loved: American music royalty Whitney Houston. The marriage between Brown and Houston was perhaps the most closely watched and talked about marriage of the 1990s - a pairing that mesmerized the public and the gossip industry. Now, for the first time, the world will be able to hear the truth from the mouth of America's "bad boy" himself. Raw and powerful, Every Little Step is the story of a man who has been on the top of the mountain and in the depths of the valley and who is now finally ready to talk about his career and family life, from the passion and the excess to his creative inspirations and massive musical success. On the process of writing this book, Bobby says, "Right after I signed on to write my story, I went through one of the most agonizing traumas I had ever experienced with the death of my daughter. But I was surprised by how therapeutic it was to work on this project, to look at the entire arc of my life and to realize that although there has been considerable pain, I have also been incredibly blessed. I hope my fans and other listeners of this book will be entertained by this trip into the crazy, exciting, fascinating world of Bobby Brown. And I hope they will feel that I have been as honest and 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bobby Brown, Lisa Renee Pitts, T. J. Storm.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Engineering - Industrial Engineering and Management, grade: 1,3, Vrije University Brussel (Solvay Business School), course: Advanced Technology, language: English, abstract: The magnetic levitation train analysed in this study was developed in Germany by the Transrapid International GmbH & Co. KG, a joint venture by Siemens AG and ThyssenKrupp AG, as a means for high speed transportation. First prototypes were presented to the public as early as 1969 and 1979, yet, the first public high-speed maglev track was opened only four years ago in Shanghai, China. Despite the fact that businesspeople like engineers from all sorts of backgrounds speak very highly of the technology, the Shanghai track remains the only commercially operated one thus far.1 Purpose of this paper is to analyse the potential of the maglev train, to assess its strengths and weaknesses, and to spot opportunities as well as threats to the application of this state-of-the-art - or perhaps ahead-of-its-time - technology.

Railways EMC
116,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This work addresses EMC issues related to the railway domain, as brought up by industrial experience in applying the European standard EN 50121. The need to test rolling stocks on non-standardized facilities is here shown to be a major source of misinterpretation, eventually leading to overestimating the electromagnetic emissions radiated by a train. In particular, the test procedure described in the standard is shown to yield site-dependent results, due to the weakness of some basic assumptions on the propagation of electric signals along railway supply-lines. To this end, propagation and radiation phenomena along such lines are investigated, under a quasi-TEM assumption, proposing approximate descriptions validated through measurements on actual sites. Direct simulations can thus be used for assessing the impact of the infrastructure. Furthermore, an experimental characterization procedure is proposed in case of lack of a site description, based on magnetic field measurements.

A Wizard of Oz, Epic Adventure...For 21st Century Readers A commemorative series from a unique perspective, Toto's! A multidimensional plot-twister w updated cast of wondrous, quirky misfits. The original Wonderful Wizard of Oz was first published in the year 1900. America was for the first time, the world's most affluent country, yet, electrical lighting, indoor plumbing, and automobile ownership were not widespread. There were less than 8000 cars on the road and no more than ten miles of paved roads. At the turn of the century, 'technology' was about bringing improved 19th century innovations to the public: phonograph, records, the combustible engine, telegraph, and telephone to name a few. In 1900, 'technology' was a train that could bring you the same distance in six days that a covered wagon brought you in six months. Cross-continental travel became easier and more affordable. Today, 'technology' means medical miracles, lasers, drones, stealth bombers, satellite surveillance, space station, cyber warfare, and quantum computers. Despite some slight differences of opinion, the first movie was produced in 1895. Jump ahead fifteen years to 1910 and check out the first Wizard of Oz film. It is a silent movie,13 minutes, and easily found on YouTube under 'Wizard of Oz 1910 film'. Setting great amusement aside, one has to strain the imagination to find similarities in this 1910 version to Disney's recent film, 'Oz The Great and Powerful'. Now, a century later, incredible graphics in games and films have raised the bar. Today's fantasy lovers expect 'fantastic' and it takes 'awesome' in books and films to meet the expectations of fantasy lovers today. The Wizard Was Odd trilogy has that kind of universal appeal. The glorious Lands of Western Oz, with elements of fantasy, steampunk, and science fiction coupled with its bizarre inhabitants, and their extreme subcultures will draw today's game-minded youth into an Oziian world unlike any other. The rest of us - who've grown up and older with Baum...our attraction to The Wizard Was Odd, will be magnetic. Why - because Oz's ever-changing characters and plots are part of this fantasy-fairy-tail universe that is comfort-food to our soul. It's this irresistible lure...this indefinable mystique that draws so many of us not only to that magical Land of Oz, but to Star Trek, Star Wars, and Harry Potter. The big difference, however, is that Oz has had our attention for nearly 120 years! We know Baum's book. We've seen MGM's movie, countless versions, and remakes. Yet, after 120 year, we find ourselves compelled with joy, anticipation, and a bit of excited trepidation to once again, walk that yellow brick road. This time it is to commemorate the Great Man himself, L. Frank Baum for his Wonderful Wizard of Oz 120th anniversary.
