He needs a wife for three weeks.... Owen Phipps is out for revenge. His mission? To expose the man who stole his sister´s money and dignity. All he needs is a ´´wife´´ who can play along. Too bad his last best hope is an actress who tries to mace him with perfume when he offers her the role of a lifetime. Lindy Knight is a real sap. She loves too hard, feels too deep, and often finds herself saying yes when she should be saying ´´Let me think about it.´´ She can´t believe her good fortune when Owen offers her more than enough money to hold off foreclosure until she can find a job. Three weeks at a resort, money she desperately needs, and she gets to help bring a criminal to justice? Score. It seems easy enough until a couples bonding game turns intimate, and they realize how dangerous their mutual attraction could be. Can they keep their hands to themselves long enough to find the evidence Owen needs? Or are the close quarters more temptation than they can handle? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carly Robins.

Following the best-selling success of Dave´s novel, Big Trouble, here is a hilarious new collection of columns from the writer critics have called ´´the funniest man in America.´´ What´s been getting Dave Barry all worked up lately? What can possibly induce him to rise up - yes, actually out of his chair - in indignation? Well, lots of things. For instance: the plague of low-flow toilets; day trading and other careers that never require you to take off your bathrobe; the parent-misery quotient of school science fairs; pine-sap transfusions for tired Christmas trees; the real skinny on the IRS; Donald Trump; the airlines; and so much more. 1.

Il primo audiolibro italiano su Steve JobsIl 12 giugno 2005, agli studenti della Stanford University, Steve Jobs pronuncia la frase che è diventata il suo testamento spirituale: ´´Stay hungry, stay foolish´´, ´´Siate affamati, siate folli´´. Affamato e folle. Così è sempre stato Steve Jobs, con i suoi successi e i suoi fallimenti, il suo carattere estremo e la sua visione estrema di purezza e perfezione. Questo audiolibro ripercorre la vita di questo visionario anticonformista dalla mente vorace e inarrestabile, che ha attraversato da protagonista la storia dell´informatica e ha rivoluzionato il modo di pensare e vivere la tecnologia. Ma soprattutto traccia una ´´biografia mentale´´ di Steve Jobs, un ritratto del suo genio. Un genio controverso, che spesso divide ma non lascia indifferenti, e un genio moderno, capace di saper unire elementi diversi e integrarli in una visione coerente, di saper vedere oltre le credenze comuni e di saper riuscire, con la forza dell´immaginazione, a creare le condizioni per realizzare la propria visione e modellare il reale sulla base del proprio ideale.Dalla fugacità di una vita infelice morsa dal fuoco dell´anima, Steve Jobs ci ha lasciato un mondo che gli somiglia molto: instabile, imprevedibile, complesso, irrequieto, a volte indecifrabile. Ma è anche un mondo eccitante, ricco di opportunità, di creatività e di bellezza. Anzi...di una folle bellezza. Please note: This audiobook is in Italian. 1. Italian.

Design-oriented firms such as Apple and IDEO have demonstrated how design thinking can directly affect business results. Yet most managers lack a real sense of how to put this new approach to use for issues other than product development and sales growth. Solving Problems with Design Thinking details 10 real-world examples of managers who successfully applied design methods at 3M, Toyota, IBM, Intuit, and SAP; entrepreneurial start-ups such as MeYou Health; and government and social sector organizations including the City of Dublin and Denmark´s The Good Kitchen. Using design skills such as ethnography, visualization, storytelling, and experimentation, these managers produced innovative solutions to problems concerning strategy implementation, sales force support, internal process redesign, feeding the elderly, engaging citizens, and the trade show experience. Here they elaborate on the challenges they faced and the processes and tools they used, offering their personal perspectives and providing a clear path to implementation based on the principles and practices laid out in Jeanne Liedtka and Tim Ogilvie´s Designing for Growth: A Design Thinking Tool Kit for Managers.

As leadership consultants and executive trainers, Bonnie St. John and Allen P. Haines have heard the same complaints from clients for years: periodic burnout, lack of focus and low energy. So they dug into the latest research on neuroscience, psychology and physiology, looking for big answers. Instead they found small answers - proof that small adjustments in daily routines, including thought patterns, food and drink and rest and movement, can fight the forces that sap our energy and restore focus and drive. They call these amazing efficient, restorative techniques micro-resilience. Thousands of men and women from all walks of life have already found effortless ways to incorporate these little changes into the busiest of schedules. Dozens of entertaining anecdotes from real people using micro-resilience demonstrate that when our brains fire faster, our energy increases, and we can cope with almost any surprise, pressure or crisis, no matter how big or small. 1.

L´Ultima Cena o Il Cenacolo è una delle opere più grandiose, per dimensioni e complessità, dell´artista-scienziato che da sempre incuriosisce e appassiona per il suo genio e per il fascino della sua personalità: Leonardo da Vinci. Nell´ex-refettorio del convento di Santa Maria delle Grazie a Milano, si trova il dipinto parietale raffigurante l´ultima cena di Cristo, composto tra il 1494 e il 1498 su incarico di Ludovico il Moro. L´Ultima Cena dipinta da Leonardo da Vinci, in un prolungamento prospettico dell´ambiente reale, costituisce un´iconografia fra le più celebri e le più profondamente penetrate nell´immaginario collettivo occidentale: la scena è quella del momento in cui Gesù dichiara agli Apostoli di sapere che uno di loro lo tradirà. A causa della tecnica pittorica utilizzata da Leonardo, incompatibile con l´umidi-tà dell´ambiente, l´opera versa da secoli in un cattivo stato di conservazione. No-nostante ciò Il Cenacolo fa parte della lista UNESCO dei beni dell´umanità da preservare ed è anche per questo motivo che si è tentato, per quanto possibile, di salvaguardarla nel corso di uno dei più lunghi e capillari restauri della storia, durato dal 1978 al 1999 con le tecniche più all´avanguardia del settore. Gli audioquadri Area51 Publishing sono un nuovo modo di conoscere, amare e godere l´arte. Ogni quadro è raccontato nel dettaglio per farti conoscere la storia, scoprire lo stile e vivere in prima persona l´emozione del dipinto.L´audiobook dell´audioquadro è illustrato: al suo interno troverai infatti le immagini dei dettagli del dipinto che ti aiuteranno a notare ed apprezzare ogni elemento dell´opera.

The atomic and molecular structure of history is created by moments in time and the interactions of those instances. Micro-moments can have macro-consequences. Consequence, Empire, War.... Space and time collide. This streamZcast compendium takes stories of four Americans whose lives were dramatically influenced by a simple split second in the wink of a young girl´s eye at a New York racetrack in the America of 1874. These life stories came to a head in 1941 when the vast ocean that Magellan named ´´The Peaceful Sea´´ became decidedly unPacIFc. Four lives affected in very different ways by a moment in time. A brief instant that changed the economic and political structures of the planet that we populate. The American and Allied conflict with Japan in the Pacific has proved to be a passing of the baton. The baton of Empire. And the true establishment of the American Century. These four stories and linking narrative get under the skin and into the hearts of protagonists in the way that only storytelling can. To add contrast, context and texture, European viewpoints are included, further broadening the listener´s knowledge and understanding of a broader world. American historian, geographer, and occasional humorist Bill Goodwin, and European writer and muse Mark Woods, combine their knowledge and insights. Their aim? To reconnect people with history through the lives and stories of real people. You, me, us.That is the streamZcast.com ethos. The streamZcast.com compendiumZ are written, composed and arranged specifically for the Internet and smart devices. Smart...And why is the ´IF´ in the compendium´Z title capitalised?
