The Black Death: Explore the Great Mortality from Beginning to End

Summary

Mankind’s annals don’t get darker. Delve into the deadliest pandemic ever known. No one knew where it came from, and at a certain point, it didn’t matter because it seemed to be everywhere...stalking the land with silent menace. It clung to people and animals like a second skin, traveling to distant places on the backs of traders and travelers who didn’t even know they were dead. It could kill swiftly and brutally, or slowly and painfully, and no one knew if they had it until it was far too late - when the weeping black pustules that gave the disease its name appeared across their feverish bodies. The Black Death swept through Africa, Asia, and Europe, taking millions of lives en route. People didn’t passively accept this epidemic. They scrambled for answers and solutions, grappling with the impossible. A very real fear began to take form: That this was the beginning of the end of the world. Social order broke down, governments stopped functioning, churches and religious scholars were undermined, fanatics whipped themselves into a frenzy, and ignorant, terrified mobs scapegoated and slaughtered their own neighbors in their homes. And yet, the world did not then end. Humanity endured, survived, and came again to thrive. This horrifying chapter of our history will fascinate, but discord and disease await. Prepare for the Black Death!

Summary

Are you struggling with a dog that seems to want to call all the shots?  Dog aggression can be frightening and overwhelming, leaving pet parents to feel hopeless about connecting with their furry friends. Lacking the understanding of why a dog behaves aggressively makes it nearly impossible to diagnose the cause and to stop it from happening again. In this audiobook, the author explains the different types of aggressive behavior man’s best friend might display, and gives you hot tips on how to reduce and soothe that aggressive behavior. The secret is that most aggressive behavior is actually caused by fear and anxiety rather than a purposeful desire to disobey or dominate. Learning to speak their language and cure the problem at the source allows a healthier, safer relationship to blossom between your family and your canine companion. To that end, in this audiobook, you’ll find fascinating information about how dogs communicate and ways in which their social structure resemble our own. You’ll also find information on how to prevent aggression in both puppies and newly added adult dogs in your household. You’ll also find training tips and shortcuts. You might find that some of the issues and behavioral problems you’ve witnessed in your dog is caused by something you never would have guessed!

Don’t waste any more time using old, ineffective styles of teaching that push you and your dog further apart and often make the aggressive behavior worse. The author lays out the best ways to reduce those behaviors while improving the happiness and mood of your entire family. The more time aggressive behavior is permitted, the harder it is to train out. Pet owners who wait too long to take action about aggressive behavior often struggle to train them down the road. The sooner you take action, the easier it is to get the behavior under control.  We explore: The temperament tests done by professionals to learn about dog behavior and personality How to diagnose the root of your dog's aggression How to ensure you, your family, and your dog remain safe while improving your relationships with the dog The myth of the Alpha dog and pack theory The “Canine Ladder of Aggression” and all its steps Learn dog language - Common meta-communications your dog displays while playing or interacting with you The best and quickest remedies to improve the aggressive behavior of your beloved pet And more!

Astronomy for Beginners: The Introduction Guide to Space, Cosmos, Galaxies and Celestial Bodies

Summary

Astronomy is inherently more observational rather than an elemental study of science. All measurements are performed at a greater distance from the object of interest, with no control of quantities such as chemical composition, pressure, or temperature. You will also understand the study of the solar system with relation to the gravitational attraction that holds the planets in their elliptical orbits around the Sun.  An early study of the universe was done through the naked eyes. This method led to the categorization of the celestial bodies and assigned constellations. Constellation has been a very important navigational tool since the beginning of the world. Various disciplines of Astronomy will also be discussed.  Examples of such disciplines include: Astrophysics Galactic astronomy Galaxy Formation Cosmology Astrometry Extragalactic astronomy Stellar astronomy Planetary sciences Astrobiology Formation of stars

The Compacted Book of World War 1

Summary

Vice and valor. Life and death. Deception and the truth. Impress your friends and loved ones with a treasure trove of knowledge! In September of 1914, our world was forever changed, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand proving enough to spark conflict on a global scale unprecedented. What’s more, the stage was set for political and cultural upheavals that would continue for decades. Nations would ride to the sides of their allies and split the world in two en route, no side coming out unscathed. The Great War, as it would come to be known, brought with it great advancements and new technologies. Meanwhile, trench warfare and weaponized gas altered the face of combat itself. These new inventions would make war more deadly than ever, contributing to more than 40 million deaths worldwide. Tragic though man’s losses were, the annals of history are replete with fascinating tales of courage - from soldiers who fought corruption to nurses who took a stand against malevolent occupation.  By examining the intricacies of WWI, we can better appreciate the toll taken on the dozens of nations directly involved. How much do you understand about this mighty melee? In this historical trivia book designed for the layperson, you’ll get a frontline look at amazing stories of heroism and epic battles, along with more than 150 expert questions to help you learn even more about the first-ever World War.

Harriet Tubman

Summary

Harriet Tubman  Inspiration lies within. Discover the conductor of the Underground Railroad today. Born into sickness and slavery, Harriet Tubman scarcely survived her childhood. Brutally beaten while laboring in the swamp lands of Maryland, she was left with hellish memories and permanent neural damage. Despite it all, she did live on...to claim a place in history’s annals, for Tubman wasn’t content to be free while others remained in shackles. Guided by compassion and unwavering faith, she emancipated herself and led hundreds of others to refuge. Along the way, Ms. Tubman experienced heartbreak and poverty at every turn. Mortal danger was ceaseless. In wartime, she rallied for women’s rights; in times of peace, for brothers and sisters still deprived of their liberty. Yet, Tubman’s true contribution to mankind was — and is — her legacy. Having entered the immortal pantheon of American heroes, she’s inspired generations to stand up in the face of prejudice and tyranny. She came from nothing but managed to give us the very greatest gift of all: conviction in ourselves. What listeners are saying: “Well written and immensely important to read, this excellent examination of the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman is a book that should be read by everyone – a source of learning and inspiration for all.” “How I would have loved to have sat with [Harriet Tubman] and felt her kindness.” “This is a very readable, introductory overview particularly well-suited for students; those older adults who may have never formally learned about Harriet Tubman during their public school years will also find it informative.” “By writing about Tubman’s character and fiery power, Ramos inspires us to reach higher in our own American and human dreams.” The trauma and triumph of Harriet Tubman is history that can’t be missed. Listen on. You may just find the strength to build a brighter future.

Fast Charge

Summary

Explore how disruptive technologies are driving a giant leap in the car business. There is a revolution launching in the automotive industry, the leap to electrification.The future of transportation combines three industries: energy, communications, and transportation into one smart infrastructure as the EV fast charge station. Once separate industries, energy, communications, and transportation, are now coming together to form an integrated, efficient, high performance transportation platform which will unleash the EV and obsolete the internal combustion engine with charge at your destination. There are over one billion cars on the roads worldwide, nearly all of them, at the time of this writing, powered with gasoline piston engines. Over the next 60 months the ratio of electric vehicles over gasoline engines for new cars sales will grow from single digits to a majority market share - displacing the gasoline piston engine. All driven by fast charge where you park. As electric car sales quickly accelerate the market opportunities are worth trillions of dollars over the next decade, a fact not lost on the car companies. The auto manufacturers are prepared for this rapid market displacement from gasoline to electric - the oil industry is not. The DC fast charge station and the ability to bring diverse networks together for seamless transactions, communications, advertising, and fast charging where you park, lays the groundwork for the revolution now undergoing the transportation industry worldwide. Every major car manufacturer is poised for this market. The infrastructure for fast charging EVs represents a large opportunity for those who take advantage of this moment in time with the automobile industry long wed to oil-based fuels, as it leaps to electric drive. Consumers are driven by desire. Power, performance, increased range, and decreased costs are powerful incentives especially when you throw in outright beauty and design in the modern EV. All of these disruptive technological waves are meeting in a historic convergence which will see the transition from piston internal combustion engines and their associated toxicity to electrification with decreasing toxicity. The modern electric car with the new batteries onboard, and onsite at the parking spaces for fast charging, will propel the automotive industry worldwide into this new era. It is a changing of the guard. An era of increased freedom, performance, and availability coupled with decreased toxicity and cost are coming together to issue a new age for transportation: electrification. Explore the electric car as fast charge obsoletes the traditional gasoline station with charge where you park.
