Snowbound. Sounds so romantic, with visions of cuddling before a roaring fire, hot chocolate spiked with brandy, and a secret elopement. Wait. What? My fiancé´s father won´t stop trying to turn our pending wedding into a three-ring media circus so he can get free publicity for his family´s Fortune 500 company. My mother has decided she´s done with All Things Wedding and asks her teacup Chihuahua for mother-of-the-bride advice. They´ve all gone certifiably mad. Then the stress from the wedding puts my mother in the hospital, I scream at my future father-in-law in front of a camera crew and the video goes viral, and the romantic wedding that started with Andrew´s grand Pride and Prejudice proposal looks less like Jane Austen and more like Dostoyevsky. So what do you do when you´re a fixer and you can´t fix something? You give up on it. Not on Andrew, silly. The wedding. Shopping for a CEO´s Wife is the 12th book in Julia Kent´s New York Times best-selling Shopping series. As Shannon and Declan enjoy their newlywed bliss, Andrew´s father wants to exploit Amanda and Andrew´s nuptials, much to Amanda´s chagrin. Can she learn to stand up to her future father-in-law and fight for what´s right? But the real question is: will Spritzy the teacup Chihuahua end up being a flower girl? 1. Language: English.

All of our best dates end up in the emergency room.... I planned the perfect proposal. There was plenty of lobster, caviar, champagne and - her favorite - tiramisu. It was the perfect setting, the perfect woman, the perfect everything. Dad gave me my late mother´s engagement ring, platinum and diamonds galore. Shannon wouldn´t care if I slid a giant hard-candy ring on her finger instead of a three-carat diamond designed to impress. But my future mother-in-law, Marie, will pass out when she sets eyes on that rock, which will give us two minutes of blessed silence. That woman talks more than Kim Kardashian flashes her naked backside on the Internet. I was going to make it perfect, from the color of the tablecloth to the freshness of the roses. And it was perfect...until Shannon swallowed the ring. Shopping for a Billionaire´s Fiancée gives near-billionaire Declan McCormick the chance to tell his story in this continuation of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Shopping for a Billionaire series. 1.

Robert Richter - Green House - Recycled Natural Shopping BagDas grüne Haus Es kann nur in die Richtung gehen, dass in unseren Wohnungen und Häusern die Energie erzeugt wird, die auch verbraucht wird. Bestenfalls sogar mehr, um Defizite in umliegenden Gebäuden über Smart-Grids auszugleichen oder Energie für schlechte Zeiten aufzusparen. Prototypen derartiger grüner Prosumer-Häuser bzw. die Komponenten dazu gibt es schon, wie zum Beispiel die Nutzung der Abwärme von Servern für die interne Heizungsanlage oder die eigene Ladestation für das Elektroauto im Haus.

Die Motive sind meist auf Gegensätzen aufgebaut, die im ersten Moment so irgendwie gar nicht zusammen passen – genauso wie bei gutem Humor funktionieren seine Bilder so, dass die Pointe erst beim zweiten Hinschauen zum Vorschein kommt.

In addition to these essential tips, Jones investigates the fast-paced future of ecommerce and what businesses can do to stay ahead of the game.

In Powering the Future, Nobel laureate Robert B. Laughlin transports us two centuries into the future, when we’ve ceased to use carbon from the ground. Boldly, Laughlin predicts no earth-shattering transformations will have taken place. Six generations from now, there will still be soccer moms, shopping malls, and business trips. Firesides will still be snug and warm. How will we do it? Not by discovering a magic bullet to slay our energy problems but through a slew of fascinating technologies, drawing on wind, water, and fire. Powering the Future is an objective yet optimistic tour through alternative fuel sources, set in a world where we’ve burned every last drop of petroleum and every last shovelful of coal. 1.

The DNA of business has changed. Forever. You can blame technology, smartphones, social media, online shopping and everything else, but nothing changes this reality: we are in a moment of business purgatory. So, what are you going to do about it? Mitch Joel, one of the world´s leading experts in new media, warns that the time has come to CTRL ALT DELETE. To reboot and to start re-building your business model. If you don´t, Joel warns, not only will your company begin to slide backwards, but you may find yourself unemployable within five years. That´s a very strong warning, but in his new audiobook, CTRL ALT DELETE, Joel explains the convergence of five key movements that have changed business forever. The movements have already taken place, but few businesses have acted on them. He outlines what you need to know to adapt right now. He also points to the seven triggers that will help you take advantage of these game-changing factors to keep you employable as this new world of business unfolds. Along the way, Joel introduces his novel concept of ´´squiggle´´ which explains how you can learn to adapt your personal approach to your career, as new technology becomes the norm. In short, this is not an audiobook about ´´change management´´ but rather an audiobook about ´´changing both you AND your business model.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mitch Joel.
