Read on below to see exactly how you can enjoy the best of life in these golden years by starting and implementing an exercise routine that will have you feeling youthful once again! Do you wake up in the morning feeling lethargic? Do you wish you had the energy to run around with kids once again? Feel stiff and aching bones? If you answered yes to any one of those three questions then pay attention because what you are about to listen to in the next few minutes could change your life. Firstly, what exactly is the problem? Generally it is inactivity. Studies have shown that it only takes a few days of lying in bed to start losing your strength, flexibility, and balance. Once this happens, you are at risk of beginning the dreaded downward spiral. What is the downward spiral you ask? The downward spiral is the problem. Well, let´s say you are feeling under the weather one day. You are retired, so end up spending a few days in bed or on the recliner watching TV. After a while the chores start piling up. Finally you get up one morning and oops, you lose your balance - falling on the floor! If your hip is not broken, you likely have a nasty bump somewhere. The pain causes you to spend more time in bed, day by day getting weaker and weaker. Then out comes the cane or walker. You begin to go outside of the house less and less because it is harder to walk. Daily chores and activities become increasingly more difficult like cooking, shopping, and taking a shower. You spend more time in the recliner and bed. Well, you get the picture. Moral of the story? Yes, you guessed it. Use your head, don´t stay in bed! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Roy Wells.

We all know what it means these days to be a ´´grumpy old man´´, because part of that role is to be outspoken. Well, we´ve heard just about enough out of the men, thank you very much. Grumpy Old Women gives us the other perspective, the female take, on the million irritations of today´s world. So what´s the difference? Surely what is irritating to the mature members of one sex is equally annoying to the other? Not necessarily, and this is precisely what Grumpy Old Women seeks to address. Body image, visitors, children, animals, shopping, careers, parties, holidays, and yes, grumpy old men themselves, all are very much on the list of what today´s mature woman finds a source of concern. From the series producer and stand-up comic Judith Holder, the book will also incorporate material from the new series Grumpy Old Women, which features a diverse, colourful, and very grumpy group of celebrities, including Janet Street Porter, Jenny Eclair, Ann Widdecombe, Germaine Greer, Kathryn Flett, and Jilly Cooper. Written with wit, style, and sympathy, the book is sure to be a source of both amusement and comfort to women everywhere, grumpy, old, or otherwise. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alison Steadman.

Was ist eigentlich Gentrifizierung und was kann man dagegen tun? Christoph Twickel beschreibt die unterschiedlichen Ansätze all jener, die derzeit um die Nutzung der Städte streiten: City-Marketing und kreatives Prekariat, kommunale Stadtentwicklung und Menschen aus verschiedensten Bereichen, die ´´von unten´´ für eine Stadt für alle kämpfen. Angriffslustig und im besten Sinne parteilich führt das Buch in die aktuellen Aktivitäten und Alternativen ein. Wenn draußen nur noch das leise Raspeln von Rollkoffern auf dem Pflaster zu hören ist, wo sich früher die Nachbarn mit der Hupe rausgeklingelt haben; wenn das Bauschild vor dem Apartment-Rohbau das Viertel als ´´bunt und frech´´ anpreist; wenn die Suche nach einem WG-Zimmer zur Castingshow wird; wenn die Ballonseidenanzug-Träger an den Stadtrand ziehen; wenn der türkische Elektrohöker einem Flagshipstore weicht und selbst nachts um halb zwei noch Leute mit aufgeklapptem Macbook in der Bar sitzen: Dann ist es allerhöchste Zeit, sich Gedanken zum Thema Gentrifizierung zu machen. Eine Linke könne heute nur aus einer Bewegung hervorgehen, die gegen Gentrifizierung und die Rendite kämpft, meint der italienische Philosoph Toni Negri. Genau dies geschieht derzeit in Hamburg: Eine unübersichtliche ´´Multitude´´ macht sich auf, an den Grundfesten der neoliberalen Metropole zu rütteln. Mitten in der Premium 1A-Lage der innerstädtischen Shopping- und Office-Zone besetzen Künstler und Aktivisten in Hamburg ein halbverfallenes ehemaliges Arbeiterquartier. Das ´´Gängeviertel´´ wird zur Besetzung der Herzen, die nostalgische Senioren und postautonome Wursthaarträger zusammenführt im Kampf gegen Investorenarchitektur und Verdrängung. In einem Manifest mit dem Titel ´´Not In Our Name, Marke Hamburg´´ verwahrt sich fast die gesamt Kulturszene dagegen, zum Standortfaktor für eine Stadt zu werden, deren Sahnelagen nur den Besserverdienenden zustehen. Schrebergärtner und Baumschützer, Kiez-Rentner und prekäre Desktop-Jobber, freie Künstler und Mieter-Aktivisten: Überall ist plötzlich vom ´´Recht auf Stadt´´ die Rede.
Winner of Readers Digest Novel of the Year Award, 2011 Signal 30, the police designation for crime scene with extreme or imminent emergency, is a riveting mystery about the intricacies of a major crime investigation filled with the terror of unpredictable and insane serial bomber. In a quiet suburb of New Jersey, a 12-year-old-girl returns from Christmas vacation and finds an unopened gift at her front door. In the excitement and exuberance of a young child, she opens it. The early evening is shattered as the gift explodes and begins a tangled search for the person who would send this destructive present. Suddenly, other devises show up at a shopping mall in New Jersey, the Holland Tunnel in New York, and the home of the Mayor in a nearby town. Detective Shane Murphy, senior officer with Special Case Investigations, is thrown into the maze of confusion as he attempts to sort out the facts before the perpetrator strikes again. While his personal life crumbles around him, as his wife informs him of her decision to pursue a divorce, Murphy finds assistance with the arrival of Stacy Landou, a Special Agent with Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The case becomes more complicated when the local press begins to hound Murphy and suggests he is failing in his investigation. With Shane´s career, marriage, and reputation seemingly out of control, the bomber continues to move one-step ahead of the investigation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Twerell.
