Audie Award, Literary Fiction, 2011On the morning of his 40th birthday, anthropology professor Jackson Jones contemplates his future: Should he go back to Africa, where he did his fieldwork, and live with the Mbuti, or should he marry and settle down in the Midwest, where he now teaches? On the morning of her release from prison, Sunny, who grew up in a snake-handling church in the Little Egypt region of Southern Illinois, rents a garage apartment from Jackson. She's been serving a five-year sentence for shooting, but not killing, her husband, the pastor of the Church of the Burning Bush with Signs Following, after he forced her at gunpoint to put her arm in a box of rattlesnakes. Sunny and Jackson become lovers, but they're pulled in different directions. Sunny, drawn to science and eager to put her snake-handling past behind her, enrolls at the university. Jackson, however, takes a professional interest in the religious ecstasy exhibited by the snake handlers. Push comes to shove in a novel packed with wit, substance, and emotional depth. Snakewoman of Little Egypt delivers Robert Hellenga at the top of his form. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Coleen Marlo.

A deluxe retelling of the cult classic film packed with tons of original bonus content. It gave us phrases like "That's so fetch" and "You can't sit with us!" It made October 3 a national holiday, and inspired teen girls everywhere to wear pink on Wednesdays. You know the story - or do you? Cady Heron grew up homeschooled in Africa with scientist parents as her teachers, monkeys as her classmates, and the African plains as her playground. But when her family moves to the suburbs of Illinois, she finds herself a stranger in a strange land: high school. With no prior research to guide her, Cady's forced to figure out North Shore High all on her own. Suddenly, she finds herself sucked into Girl World as a new member of the social elite dubbed "The Plastics". Cady discovers that unlike the wild, Girl World doesn't have any rules - especially when you maybe, possibly, okay, definitely, have a giant crush on their ruthless leader's ex-boyfriend. Turns out, life in high school might be even more brutal than a showdown on the Savannah. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan-Kate Heaney.

Dance Prone (eBook, ePUB)
11,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

During their 1985 tour, two events of hatred and stupidity forever change the lives of a band's four members. Neues Bauen, a post-hardcore Illinois group homing in on their own small fame, head on with frontman Conrad Wells sexually assaulted and guitarist Tone Seburg wounded by gunshot. The band staggers forth into the American landscape, traversing time and investigating each of their relationships with history, memory, authenticity, violence and revelling in transcendence through the act of art.With decades passed and compelled by his wife's failing health to track down Tone, Conrad flies to North Africa where her brother is rumoured to be hiding with a renowned artist from their past. There he instead meets various characters including his former drummer, Spence. Amongst the sprawl and shout of Morocco, the men attempt to recall what happened to them during their lost years of mental disintegration and emotional poverty.Dance Prone is a novel of music, ritual and love. It is live, tense and corporeal. Full of closely observed details of indie-rock, of punk infused performance, the road and the players' relationship to violence, hate and peace. Set simultaneously during the post-punk period and the narrative present of 2019, Dance Prone was born out of a love of the underground and indie rock scenes of the 1980s, a fascination for their role in the cultural apparatus of memory, social decay and its reconstruction.'Lyrical. Violent. Elegiac. Epic. I adore David Coventry's writing and Dance Prone is a magnificent novel.' Alan McMonagle author of Laura Cassidy's Walk of Fame and Ithaca.

What we've learned (or failed to learn) to compete globallyWhy are some companies highly successful with their lean Six Sigma performance management initiatives, while most are not? Best Practices in Lean Six Sigma Process Improvement shows readers how to get process improvement going, and keep it going for many years. The key is an expended concentration on what are most important to customers, namely quality, response time, flexibility, and value. The author provides readers with valuable benchmarks and best-practice models based on results from his own extensive, long-ranging research, including hard data from 1,200 companies throughout the world.Richard J. Schonberger (Bellevue, WA) is President of Schonberger Production and has been awarded both the Shingo Prize for Excellence in Manufacturing as well as the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE)'s Production and Inventory Control Award.Praise for Best Practices in Lean Six Sigma Process Improvement "Dr. Schonberger reveals why successful companies lose their way on their continuous improvement journey and the magic formula for achieving rapid continuous improvement. This is a must-read for those who must develop or broaden their competitive advantage." David L. Schlotterbeck, CEO of Clinical and Medical Products, Cardinal Health "With a stature built on decades of research, reading, and reporting, Schonberger in this book sets about one of his favorite routines: debunking what most consider to be established truths; questioning questionable practices, and offering valuable new insights. With all his opinions solidly backed up with research data, this provocative read will undoubtedly contribute new angles to the worldwide discourse on operations improvement." Koot Pieterse, Professor, Lean Manufacturing Group, Business School, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, Port Elizabeth, South Africa. "Finally, a true thought leader, Dick Schonberger, has stepped forward to give clarity to why companies either get better or plateau. Continuous improvement has been misunderstood over the years because most leaders have not fully understood the benefits and shortcomings of the individual methodologies, how they should fit together and how they are best used to engage every associate. The future clearly belongs to those who understand how to organize the pieces effectively into a robust systematic approach." Craig Long, Vice President, Quality & Six Sigma, Milliken & Company Best Practices in Lean Six Sigma Process Improvement reveals how to refocus lean/six sigma processes on what author Richard Schonberger-world-renowned process improvement pioneer-calls "the Golden Goals": better quality, quicker response, greater flexibility, and higher value-all with a focus on the universal wants and needs of customers.

Vineyard Bible Institute

Vineyard Bible Institute (VBI), with its world headquarters in Urbana, Illinois, is a world-wide Christian on-line school with local sites in over 20 countries. VBI was birthed in Anaheim, California in the 1990s and initially ran as a tape-based, correspondence bible school. Dr. Derek Morphew, Vineyard scholar and pastor located in Cape Town, South Africa, was solicited by Bob Fulton (with John Wimber s endorsement, the founder of the association of Vineyard churches) to assume leadership in 1997. At its relaunch in May 2000, an internet-based curriculum with full-text materials replaced the older tape-based correspondence. Having the school on the internet ensured its accessibility to the Christian community worldwide and kept running costs and student fees to a minimum.
