Every woman has had this experience: you get to the end of the day and realize you did nothing for you. And if you go days, weeks, or even months in this cycle, you begin to feel like you have lost a bit of yourself. While life is busy with a litany of must-dos - work, child-rearing, keeping house, grocery shopping, laundry and on and on - women do not have to push their own needs aside. Yet this is often what happens. There´s just no time, right? Wrong. In this practical and liberating audiobook, Jessica Turner empowers women to take back pockets of time they already have in their day in order to practice self-care and do the things they love. Turner uses her own experiences and those of women across the country to teach listeners how to balance their many responsibilities while still taking time to invest in themselves. She also addresses barriers to this lifestyle, such as comparison and guilt, and demonstrates how eliminating these feelings and making changes to one´s schedule will make the listener a better wife, mother, and friend.

Learn about the science of Wind Power with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Wind power is a limitless, non-polluting resource that currently contributes almost 2% of the world´s energy supply. It´s the fastest-growing resource market in the world and has become one of the biggest issues in the green movement. Importantly, there is enough of it in the atmosphere to meet the daily global energy demand five times over! But what is wind? In fact, it is the sun´s heat and the earth´s varied surfaces that create wind. When the sun´s rays hit the earth, the north and south poles receive less heat than the equator because of their angle to the sun. The earth´s vegetation, water, and geographical features such as mountains and deserts also affect air temperature. These different surface conditions create massive air pockets or ´´fronts´´ of varying temperatures. The movement of these fronts is called the ´´convection system´´. In this system, warm air starts on the Earth´s surface. The hottest air is on or near to the equator.

Learn the history of the Spanish Inquisition with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. The Spanish Inquisition was a governing authority started by the crown in the late-fifteenth century. It included a network of spies who worked across the state to ensure Spaniards conformed to the accepted behavior of traditional Catholic subjects. It was relentless in ensuring Catholic orthodoxy within Spain. But why was Spain so self-conscious in ensuring a singular religious identity? Let´s go back to the year 711. Muslim armies from North Africa successfully conquer much of the Iberian Peninsula, leaving only pockets of resistance in the North. There is Islamic rule in at least part of Spain for the most part of the next eight centuries. But the small areas of resistance are the start of the reconquista meaning ´´reconquest´´. Jump forward now 740 years. It is 1451 and Mehmed II ascends to the throne of the Ottoman Empire.

When Kate Reilly arrives in Long Beach, California, a week ahead of the Grand Prix, she is immediately plunged into a new social scene - as well as a murder investigation. Her cousin, Billy, is found dead, with Kate´s card in his pocket. The cops want to know why, and sponsors and race organizers - anxious to keep racing´s image clean - want Kate to investigate. Doubting she can solve another murder, especially that of a relative she despised, Kate reluctantly agrees. At the same time, coaching a gorgeous and talented actress for a celebrity race brings Kate into the orbit of Hollywood´s hottest bachelor. And then a local FBI agent takes notice of more than her driving and sleuthing skills. She goes from Sony Studios to Venice Beach and from Rodeo Drive to the Hollywood Hills, attending parties, power shopping, and dodging unwelcome paparazzi. Kate´s ballooning media exposure generates national commentary, testing her composure and forcing her to get ahead of the stories - whether critical or flattering. Kate´s professional dreams are also coming true. The upcoming Grand Prix is her first race with a new sponsor that is also funding an IndyCar test drive and a ride in next year´s Indy 500 - along with future possibilities in NASCAR. The downside? New sponsor Frame Savings is owned by her family, and its management, outside of her long-estranged father, is unfriendly to her - even rivalrous. Kate must stay on her toes as the Long Beach race weekend begins. She´s negotiating the next steps in her career, driving two race cars and coaching a third, discovering more about the disreputable members of her father´s family than she wanted to know, and juggling questions and murder suspects. On the track, red flags fly to warn her of danger. Off track, Kate struggles to interpret warning signs and stay out of a killer´s grasp. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicole Vilencia.

If someone were to write a novel about the world of big-box retail, it could very well be a grab bag of horrors and tragedies, detailing the dismal pay and long hours that employees suffer in the name of low prices and just-good-enough merchandise all so the bigwigs and the bean counters can stuff their pockets with trumped up stock options. It could be about that. Thankfully, this book isn´t. Instead, it´s a lively romantic comedy that begins when Jeff Martin, son of the owner of the third-largest retailer in the United States, shows up at his father´s Minnesota corporate office, newly minted business cards with the letters MBA after his name, ready to take the reins. There´s just one problem: His father thinks his son is a frivolous playboy who´d run the company into the ground. Jeff has a hard time making a case otherwise, and only some quick thinking gives him a way to prove his worth: He has to work as an assistant manager in one of Martco´s stores for a year. And he can´t tell anybody who he is. Welcome to Delburg, Oregon, an average city with an average Martco. Like all other Martcos, they sell everything from dog food to diamonds. Carol Kinnington is a single mother who´s been trying to put her life back together ever since her husband gave up both her and his lucrative law practice in favor of a young Navajo women who seduced him with peyote and peace pipes. If Carol can just get promoted to Assistant Manager, she´ll earn enough to get out of her dingy apartment and make a life for herself and her five-year-old son. Then a certain Jeff ´´Garby´´ swoops in to take the job she knows she deserves. What happens next is a lively romantic comedy about two people from wildly different worlds whose shopping carts collide - and eventually, against great odds, still find a way to fall in love. It´s Romeo and Juliet on a blue light special. It´s When Harry Met Sally in paper or plastic. It´s a story as old as time i... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nellie Barnett.
