Sally let her eyes drift down to the girl´s dark blue skirt, somewhere between a mini and a midi, and she could not help but notice the long and shapely legs that were crossed rather elegantly within the skirt, with milky thighs and smooth white calves that tapered down to delicate ankles and dark blue heels. Her nails were painted dark blue also. Wow, this girl was really something! So elegant! So... Then suddenly the girl looked up! Oh, no, she had caught Sally staring right at her! And staring not at her face, but at her body! The girl raised one eyebrow slightly, as if to say ´´Yes?´´ Sally felt herself blush and looked quickly to the floor. After perhaps 10 seconds staring at various uninteresting pairs of shoes, Sally gathered her courage and looked back toward the girl. Oh my goodness, she was still staring, and she´d caught Sally looking once again! This was getting really embarrassing! Sally felt herself blush once more. The girl must think Sally was some kind of weird pervert! She would probably phone the police as soon as she could get a signal! Sally at least reassured herself that she was looking good that evening. Her thick blonde medium-length hair had a nice shine and swirl to it. She was glad she´d put on her long black boots with the high heels; happy that she had a stylish brown skirt and black blouse; even a little excited that she had worn her black stockings that day. It was while daydreaming in this way that Sally observed something rather strange. Despite the fact that the train was now at full speed and the passengers were still some way from the next stop, the girl stood up and began to walk in Sally´s direction! She continued walking as if to get nearer the door but brushed against Sally´s belly with her phone as she did so. Was that accidental? Probably: The train was still pretty crowded, so there was not much room to get by. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scarlett Knightley.

From Tom Coyne - the author of the New York Times best-selling A Course Called Ireland, hailed as ´´a joy from start to finish” by The Wall Street Journal - comes the heartfelt and humorous celebration of his quest to play golf on every links course in Scotland, the birthplace of the game he loves. For much of his adult life, best-selling author Tom Coyne has been chasing a golf ball around the globe. When he was in college, studying abroad in London, he entered the lottery for a prized tee time in Scotland, grabbing his clubs and jumping the train to St. Andrews as his friends partied in Amsterdam; later, he golfed the entirety of Ireland’s coastline, chased pros through the mini-tours, and attended grueling Qualifying Schools in Australia, Canada, and Latin America. Yet, as he watched the greats compete, he felt something was missing. Then one day a friend suggested he attempt to play every links course in Scotland, and qualify for the greatest championship in golf. The result is A Course Called Scotland, a hilarious golf and travel adventure throughout the birthplace of the sport and home to some of the oldest and most beloved courses in the world, including St. Andrews, Turnberry, Dornoch, Prestwick, Troon, and Carnoustie. With his signature blend of storytelling, humor, history, and insight, Coyne weaves together his journey to more than 100 legendary links courses in Scotland with compelling threads of golf history and witty insights into the contemporary home of golf. As he journeys Scotland in search of the game’s secrets, he discovers new and old friends, rediscovers the peace and power of the sport, and, most importantly, reaffirms the ultimate connection between the game and the soul. It is a rollicking love letter to Scotland and golf as no one has attempted it before. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jacques Roy.

Composée de chercheurs et de militaires, la société française Pygmée Prod commercialise les services d´une nouvelle race d´humains créée de toute pièce : les Emachs, des femmes et des hommes ne dépassant pas 17 cm. Ces êtres réduits servent sur la planète entière à diverses tâches : leur petite taille et la minutie de leurs gestes font des merveilles ; certains se sont même illustrés dans des actes héroïques. Tout pourrait continuer ainsi, si un fait divers sordide ne venait tout bouleverser. En Autriche, un adolescent se filme en train de torturer trois de ces Emachs. Sur internet, la vidéo fait un buzz. Le Dr Wells, à l´origine du projet, prend alors conscience que ses créatures ne sont pas considérées comme des êtres humains.

Our leadership development programs teach necessary skills, yet we often train individuals who do not have the character to lead, which is a weakness because a leader with skills but no character can be dangerous. But a leader with character but no skills is useless. In this book, author, consultant, and entrepreneur Tim Clark shows how anyone can develop both character and competence. Clark lays out his model of the "core" (character) and the "crust" (competence) to explain how we can rethink leadership. Most importantly, this model makes no allowance for job title, formal authority, or position. Almost anyone with the right character can learn competence, but Clark makes clear that the formula rarely works the other way around. For each aspect of leadership, he shares a series of mini lessons taken from his research and experience. Clark´s book will be a key personal growth tool for anyone anywhere ready to step up, regardless of external labels or job description. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wayne Shepherd.
