Story Telling Game
15,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Once upon a time there was someone who loved telling stories... well if you know that someone, then they'll be a winner at playing The Story Telling Game! Whether they tell tall, short, fairy or scary stories, this fast-paced game will be a best-seller for children aged six upwards who have a vivid imagination, a competitive streak and are quick thinking. The Story Telling Game is a great birthday and Christmas gift and it not only encourages creativity, but it will keep children entertained on rainy days and school holidays. Created for budding Jackanorys, The Story Telling Game sees each player start with five words on their cards and when the clock starts, the first players starts telling a story using one of their words. Then it's the turn of the next player who has to incorporate one of their words into the former player's story... and so it goes on with each player adding to the story with one of their words at a time until the buzzer declares that it's 'The End' for the player who's talking when the buzzer sounds. When this happens, the player has to pick up all the cards used by the other players and begin a new story, this time with the opening 'Twice upon a time'. The story doesn't have to win awards or be a work of literary genius - it can be about anything but has to include one of the words on each of their cards. The Smiley Trump card adds a twist to the game as it can be used as any word and if a player is caught out by the buzzer, the Smiley Trump means they get off scot-free and the next player has to collect all the cards.

Natural-Born Cyborgs

From Robocop to the Terminator to Eve 8, no image better captures our deepest fears about technology than the cyborg, the person who is both flesh and metal, brain and electronics. But philosopher and cognitive scientist Andy Clark sees it differently. Cyborgs, he writes, are not something to be feared--we already are cyborgs. In Natural-Born Cyborgs, Clark argues that what makes humans so different from other species is our capacity to fully incorporate tools and supporting cultural practices into our existence. Technology as simple as writing on a sketchpad, as familiar as Google or a cellular phone, and as potentially revolutionary as mind-extending neural implants--all exploit our brains' astonishingly plastic nature. Our minds are primed to seek out and incorporate non-biological resources, so that we actually think and feel through our best technologies. Drawing on his expertise in cognitive science, Clark demonstrates that our sense of self and of physical presence can be expanded to a remarkable extent, placing the long-existing telephone and the emerging technology of telepresence on the same continuum. He explores ways in which we have adapted our lives to make use of technology (the measurement of time, for example, has wrought enormous changes in human existence), as well as ways in which increasingly fluid technologies can adapt to individual users during normal use. Bio-technological unions, Clark argues, are evolving with a speed never seen before in history. As we enter an age of wearable computers, sensory augmentation, wireless devices, intelligent environments, thought-controlled prosthetics, and rapid-fire information search and retrieval, the linebetween the user and her tools grows thinner day by day. "This double whammy of plastic brains and increasingly responsive and well-fitted tools creates an unprecedented opportunity for ever-closer kinds of human-machine merger," he writes, arguing that such a merger is

A Beauty So Rare: Belmont Mansion, Book 2 , Hör...

Pink was not what Eleanor Braddock ordered, but maybe it would soften the tempered steel of a woman who came through a war--and still had one to fight. Eleanor Braddock, a spinster at 30, has long since dismissed any hope of marriage. But when a dying soldier whispers his final words, she believes her life can still have meaning and determines to find his widow. But this compassionate deed takes a harsh turn, and Eleanor finds herself dependent upon the richest woman in America and the most despised woman in Nashville--her aunt, Adelicia Acklen, mistress of Belmont Mansion. A clandestine act of kindness leads Eleanor to an unlikely path for her life--building an orphanage, a place that will house widows and orphans from the Civil War. And while Eleanor knows her own heart, she also knows her aunt will never approve. Marcus von Quint, Archduke of the House of Habsburg and second in line to the Austrian throne, arrives in Nashville in search of a life he determines, instead of one determined for him. Collaborating with botanist Luther Burbank, Marcus seeks to combine his own passion for nature with his expertise in architecture. But his plans to incorporate natural beauty into the design of the orphanage run contrary to the wishes of practical, frugal Eleanor, who sees his ideas as costly nonsense. Yet as the construction project continues, Marcus and Eleanor find common ground--and a love neither of them expected. But Marcus is not the man Adelicia has chosen for Eleanor to marry, and even if he were, someone who knows Marcus's secrets is about to reveal them all. 1. Language: English.

Master Piece, 1 Audio-CD
11,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The word legend is one that is bandied around the media with apparent abandon. However, there are a few select names who genuinely deserve the accolade for their accomplishments. In the world of reggae / dub music, one such name is Lee Scratch Perry. With decades of pioneering behind him, Perry has released his latest fulllength album, Master Piece. Based on his 2010 EP, Perry brings his trademark techniques to bear across 10 tracks and just over 50-minutes. While some moments, such as the title track definitely delve into dub territory, this album also sees Perry incorporate some different, modern accents into his sound, breaking tracks down into varied suites in the manner of a classical composer. However, where some composers would use different instruments, Perry is not afraid to switch styles mid-track to alter the mood entirely.Regardless of which styles Perry is using, the music remains distinctly his, as he layers the various elements to create complex sound-scapes that play across themes and moods like an instrumental collage, with the occasional vocal snippet. This technique is particularly potent where Perry allows himself more time to explore, such as on Master Piece and Medusa Dub. A quick glance over the track-list will show that Perry has opted to deliver a number of versions of the tracks Mr. Upsetter and Forgiveness back-to-back. However, rather than playing like a repetitive collection, these moments actually serve to show the strength of Perry s production as he tweaks each track into different nuances. The former of the two sees Perry, at times, opting to include the lyrics of Born Free while at others disposing of them completely or chopping them into new forms.

Pope & the CEO: John Paul II's Leadership Lesso...

'John Paul II showed me what real leadership looks like. He modeled for me how to pursue our God-given potential. Not coincidentally, this also makes us and those around us better employees, more capable of and more willing to work hard at building a stronger company. That's something that makes both good human sense and good business sense.' —Andrea Widmer Former Swiss Guard, CEO and business leader Andreas Widmer gives a behind-the-scenes look into Pope John Paul II, 'the most authentically human person I've ever met, ' and reveals how those memories shaped and forged his success as a corporate executive. In what papal biographer George Weigel calls 'a powerful example of leadership at work,' Widmer recounts his personal experiences serving Blessed Pope John Paul II in the Swiss Guard, and the secrets of successful leadership that he learned at the feet of the great pope. 'John Paul's influence made me understand that business and faith go together. The free market and Christianity are not opposed to each other but business can be a wonderful school of virtue and faith. Faith and virtue, on the other hand, make a business and the economy truly prosperous. The late pope is a great inspiration and example for business leaders and CEOs. He is for me and I hope he will be for you as well. ' 'Andreas Widmer has given us a true gift by sharing his first-hand experience of Pope JPII's personal habits so that we can incorporate these in our own leadership journey,' says Dr. Carolyn Woo, Dean of the Business School at Notre Dame. This up-close look at the pope's influence raises the bar for leadership to new heights. Christian executives, CEOs, entrepreneurs, small business owners—anyone who wants to avoid mediocrity—will find the lessons Widmer learned and imparts both inspirational and practical. Peter Cardinal Turkson comments that this book is 'an excellent tribute to the memory of [Pope John Paul II] and a commendable guide to successful entrepreneurship.' Widmer learned from the pope that moral leadership doesn't just make a difference for the leaders themselves, but makes a difference for their companies, customers, and teams. Companies, led by a strong, moral leader, says Widmer, also have a proven track record of performing better in the long run. 'Andreas' insights from daily life with a great man like John Paul II drives home the point that business decisions can be made from purely human motives OR with God's inspiration for us and for our work. The anecdotes and insights make The Pope & The CEO a worthwhile read,' says Claire Huang, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The Pope & The CEO offers nine chapters of stories and reflections about John Paul II and practical applications connecting those teachings to the world of business, big or small, and to anyone wanting to lead a team of people in today's world. Published by Emmaus Road, this is a first of its kind look into the life of a Swiss Guard and what he learned from perhaps the greatest Christian of our time. Widmer's observation of John Paul II, and his direct experience of the late pope's approach to leadership, had a profound impact on the way he sees the centrality of human interaction: 'When you were with the Holy Father, you felt like you were the reason he got up in the morning.'
