´´Wake up, Muffy. We´re back.´´From Lisa Birnbach, the author of The Official Preppy Handbook - and designer Chip Kidd - comes a whole new take on the prep world that Birnbach turned into an international best-selling phenomenon 30 years ago.True Prep is a contemporary look at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapt to the new order of things. Birnbach considers the prep attitude towards money (ambivalent), schools (good investment), wardrobe (now your clothes fit), work (some careers will never be prep), decorating (ask mummy), scandal (including rehab and prison), and food and drink (with some classic recipes for both). She also looks at weekends (and what to do to get asked back), entertaining, sports (including sailing and shopping), weddings, etiquette, the Internet and electronic gadgetry, political correctness, reality TV, and . . . polar fleece. And last but not least: a do-it-yourself eulogy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Birnbach. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/002383de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

Learn about the science of the Aurora Borealis with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. The aurora borealis, often referred to as the Northern Lights, is a natural light-show that appears in the sky around the north magnetic pole. Auroras can sometimes be seen in other places of the world, but not as clearly. In the southern hemisphere, the phenomenon is called ´´aurora australis”. The aurora borealis occurs because of an interaction between solar wind and the Earth’s magnetic field. When the sun’s gases explode, some of the particles are blown away in a phenomenon known as solar wind. The particles in the solar wind travel at speeds of over 600,000 miles per hour and take two to three days to reach the Earth. When these particles reach the Earth, some of the electrons and protons get caught in the Earth’s magnetic field. This happens most frequently in the Polar Regions of the Earth where the magnetic field is stronger. The electrons and protons get trapped in the atmosphere, and move in a giant oval shaped motion.
