Photophysical Studies of Pi-conjugated Oligomers and Polymers That Incorporate Inorganic MLCT Chromophores: Keith Walters
In Ivanhoe Scott fashioned an imperial myth of national cultural identity that has shaped the popular imagination ever since its first appearance at the end of 1819. The most famous of Scottish novelists drew on the conventions of Gothic fiction, including its risky sexual and racial themes, to explore the violent origins and limits of English nationality. Based on the 1830 Magnum Opus text of Ivanhoe, this is the first modern edition to make corrections against Scott´s working materials and incorporates readings from Scott´s manuscript.
Through his imagined journals of Adam and Eve, Mark Twain wrote what has been called ´´one of the great love stories of all time.” Mandy Patinkin and Betty Buckley bring Adam and Eve to life, capturing the expected humor as well as the tender eloquence of Twain’s most personal, heartfelt writing. In one of his last recordings, Walter Cronkite provides an illuminating commentary on how the author came to reinterpret the Genesis story. This expanded edition, unlike any other version, incorporates previously unpublished passages as well as Mark Twain’s mislaid final revision of ´´Adam’s Diary.” 1. Language: English.

Celebrated as one of the first popular mystery novels, The Woman in White, by Wilkie Collins, skillfully incorporates the twisting and turning of more than a few plot lines that all manage to converge beautifully at the end of the work. Walter Hartright, an art teacher, crosses paths one day with a woman who appears to be distressed, and he notices immediately that she is clad in an all-white outfit. It is later made known to him that she is from an asylum, and that her name is Anne. The people of the community know her very well. After Walter takes a job at what is known as Limmeridge House, he notices that one of his students - Laura - looks strikingly like the distressed woman he met, Anne. But it is not until later on in the novel that he discovers the reason why. Through a series of calculated moves that involve death and a large inheritance, the small community is rocked and shrouded in mystery at the hands of the conniving Sir Percival Glyde, who is interested only in making himself wealthy at the hands of others. As in all great novels, the antagonists get what they deserve, and the characters who maintain their dignity are rewarded handsomely in the end. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

A new lens on growth and a critical set of strategies for navigating a complex world Growth is rarely in a straight line. It is tempting to think otherwise, particularly when looking in the rear view mirror, but anyone faced with plotting the coordinates for a company´s growth knows the fallacy of this notion. As much as we like to think of corporate leaders executing sure-fire growth strategies, the truth is far messier: it´s more an act of exploration and discovery than a step-by-step process. In Growth in the Age of Complexity, the authors describe in detail how complexity has impacted businesses and the markets in which they compete, and the strategies, mindsets, and skillsets required to grow profitably! New strategies are required to navigate the ´´Sirens of Growth´´: the growth plans borne of Industrial Age mindsets that too frequently lead to complexity vs. scale. In addition, companies need to develop an Explorer´s Mindset and a Navigator´s Skillset to sustain performance. You´ll discover how to: Assess where you´re truly making money Reignite your core products and services to drive growth Incorporate experimentation as a key way to discover new opportunities Create an operating model for scale, location, and replication Identify new markets where you are positioned to win Understand the fundamentals for executing in a distributed organization This book is an invaluable tool for achieving growth and maintaining a competitive advantage in virtually any business. 1.
