Schon die Präsentation der Internetplattform WikiLeaks durch Julian Assange und seiner Aufforderung, dort anonym streng geheime staatliche Informationen preiszugeben, sorgte für großes Aufsehen in den Medien. Nach einigen spektakulären Veröffentlichungen platzte die Bombe: Der ebenso besorgt wie naiv erscheinende US-Soldat Bradley Manning lieferte über WikiLeaks den Zugang zu hunderttausenden Geheimdokumenten des US-Militärs, darunter schockierende Aufnahmen aus dem Irak-Krieg. Staatsfeind oder Held der Medienfreiheit - das sind die Urteile, mit denen der flüchtige und skandalumwitterte Assenge tituliert wird.

Do you really know who or what your competition is? In this audiobook, Dr. Heidi Thorne, MBA/DBA, discusses competitive forces that prevent small businesses, solopreneurs, and self-employed consultants from making sales. What’s even more troubling is that these forces are largely invisible, meaning that they may be attitudes and situations, and not similar suppliers. This can make them very difficult to identify and overcome. Drawing on her decades of experience in selling, advertising, and publishing, Heidi explains several critical invisible competition forces, along with ways to combat them in the marketplace. Heidi is the author of more than 20 books and eBooks on self publishing and marketing topics. She has more than 25 years of experience in sales, advertising, and publishing, including more than 15 years as editor and regional advertising director for a trade newspaper. In addition to her own publishing pursuits, she helps nonfiction authors avoid embarrassing and expensive self publishing mistakes with her editing services.

In this disquieting cyber thriller, Joseph Menn takes readers into the murky hacker underground, traveling the globe from San Francisco to Costa Rica and London to Russia. His guides are California surfer and computer whiz Barrett Lyon and a fearless British high-tech agent. Through these heroes, Menn shows the evolution of cyber-crime from small-time thieving to sophisticated, organized gangs, who began by attacking corporate websites but increasingly steal financial data from consumers and defense secrets from governments. Using unprecedented access to Mob businesses and Russian officials, the book reveals how top criminals earned protection from the Russian government. Fatal System Error penetrates both the Russian cyber-mob and La Cosa Nostra as the two fight over the Internet´s massive spoils. The cloak-and-dagger adventure shows why cyber-crime is much worse than you thought and why the Internet might not survive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christian Rummel.

Not loud enough to make himself heard at dinner with his father, Stoick the Vast; not hard enough to beat his chief rival, Snotlout, at Bashyball, the number one school sport and CERTAINLY not stupid enough to go into a cave full of dragons to find a pet...

Marie doesn´t need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother´s house one afternoon doesn´t agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she´s not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn´t know his real name or where he lives, she´s ninety percent certain he´s a criminal and that the ´´business´´ he talks with her brother isn´t website design. She needs him out of her life, which would be a snap if he´d just stop giving her mind-blowing orgasms. Horse is part of the Reapers Motorcycle Club, and when he wants something, he takes it. What he wants is Marie, but she´s not interested in becoming ´´property of´´. Then her brother steals from the club. Marie can save him by giving Horse what he wants - at home, in public, on his bike... If she´s a very, very good girl, she´ll get lots more of those orgasms only he can offer, and he´ll let her brother live. Maybe. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stella Bloom.
