For Vera Chytilová, documentary and fiction were two equally adventurous processes. Something Different follows two women – one strand as a documentary of a gymnast in gruelling training (real life Olympic gold-medallist Eva Bosáková), whilst the second is the fiction of a discontented housewife (Věra Uzelacová). In A Bagful of Fleas, young factory girls defying imposed rules are played by non-professionals and the film shot in a free-wheeling cinéma vérité style. These two terrific early works introduce themes evident across Chytilová’s career: a female viewpoint in a world dominated by men, the expectations and strictures of female gender roles, and a strong critique of her society. Combining formalism with anarchy and spiked with rebellious humour, her films broke strictures of genre and ideology to chart a new path for Czechoslovak cinema. Available for the first time, the DVD presents these films from superb new high-definition digital transfers of the brand new restorations of the films by the Czech National Film Archive, and II Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna and also includes a booklet featuring a new essay on Chytilová and these films by Czech cinema expert Peter Hames.

Following up on his well-received first book, Andy Thompson provides another captivating, thought-provoking, and at times intense glimpse into the daily life of a paramedic working in the UK's National Health Service. In the style of his first book, Andy recalls each event from the detailed documentation recorded at the time. Each account is written in a way that puts the listener right there next to him, so you live the events in real time. You'll hear the dialogue between paramedics, patients, their loved ones, and other health-care professionals as it would have been. You'll also share in Andy's thought processes during each of the 10 very different situations he encounters. The term "the dark side" describes the frontline emergency aspect of the ambulance service, since paramedics frequently experience somber situations. In The Dark Side, Part 2, you will share in some truly traumatic, tragic, and tearful events involving a seemingly healthy young patient, a prison inmate, the victims of a horrific car crash, heart attacks, a frightening epileptic fit, the alarming effects of an allergic reaction, and what can happen when under-strain doctors prescribe the wrong medications. But there's still room for lighthearted moments and a taste of the sometimes dark humor that allows paramedics to continually deal with events most of us would find too horrific. The detail in the descriptions of the care given to each patient on-scene by Andy and his colleagues will have you marveling at the ability of these health-care professionals to work at such speed of thought, buying enough time to deliver a patient into the specialist hands of hospital care. There are inevitably also those times when tears of hope turn to tears of despair for loved ones. You cannot feel that pain until it happens to you, but this book will bring you mighty close to it at times. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Nottage.

The history books may write it Reverend King was born in Atlanta, and then came to Montgomery, but we feel that he was born in Montgomery in the struggle here, and now he is moving to Atlanta for bigger responsibilities. Member of Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, November 1959 Preacher - this simple term describes the 25-year-old PhD in theology who arrived in Montgomery, Alabama, to become the pastor of Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in 1954. His name was Martin Luther King, Jr., but where did this young minister come from? What did he believe, and what role would he play in the growing activism of the civil rights movement of the 1950s? In Becoming King: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Making of a National Leader, author Troy Jackson chronicles King's emergence and effectiveness as a civil rights leader by examining his relationship with the people of Montgomery, Alabama. Using the sharp lens of Montgomery's struggle for racial equality to investigate King's burgeoning leadership, Jackson explores King's ability to connect with the educated and the unlettered, professionals and the working class. In particular, Jackson highlights King's alliances with Jo Ann Robinson, a young English professor at Alabama State University; E. D. Nixon, a middle-aged Pullman porter and head of the local NAACP chapter; and Virginia Durr, a courageous white woman who bailed Rosa Parks out of jail after Parks refused to give up her bus seat to a white person. Jackson offers nuanced portrayals of King's relationships with these and other civil rights leaders in the community to illustrate King's development within the community. Drawing on countless interviews and archival sources, Jackson compares King's sermons and religious writings before, during, and after the Montgomery bus boycott. Jackson demonstrates how King's voice and message evolved during his time in Montgomery, reflecting the shared struggles, challenges, experiences, and hopes of the people 1. Language: English.

National Book Award Winner, Nonfiction, 2014 A vibrant, colorful, and revelatory inner history of China during a moment of profound transformation. From abroad, we often see China as a caricature: a nation of pragmatic plutocrats and ruthlessly dedicated students destined to rule the global economy - or an addled Goliath, riddled with corruption and on the edge of stagnation. What we don’t see is how both powerful and ordinary people are remaking their lives as their country dramatically changes. As the Beijing correspondent for The New Yorker, Evan Osnos was on the ground in China for years, witness to profound political, economic, and cultural upheaval. In Age of Ambition, he describes the greatest collision taking place in that country: the clash between the rise of the individual and the Communist Party’s struggle to retain control. He asks probing questions: Why does a government with more success lifting people from poverty than any civilization in history choose to put strict restraints on freedom of expression? Why do millions of young Chinese professionals - fluent in English and devoted to Western pop culture - consider themselves "angry youth", dedicated to resisting the West's influence? How are Chinese from all strata finding meaning after two decades of the relentless pursuit of wealth?Writing with great narrative verve and a keen sense of irony, Osnos follows the moving stories of everyday people and reveals life in the new China to be a battleground between aspiration and authoritarianism, in which only one can prevail. 1.

Amazon Best Seller in Teams Truly engaging people is not about commanding them to do something; it is about getting them to command themselves to do it. West Point distinguished graduate Gary Morton knows how to deliver exceptional results while doing just that. As a platoon leader and tank commander in Army Task Force 4-68 and later as a young vice president at medical device manufacturer Stryker, Morton learned under two legendary leaders who, despite different styles, followed nearly the same steps to achieve results most considered unattainable. In only a year, Task Force 4-68's commander, Lt. Colonel Alfred L. Dibella, turned one of the army's poorest performing units into the most lethal, combat-ready task force in the US Army. In simulated-combat missions at the grueling National Training Center, Dibella's task force defeated the constantly triumphant OPFOR in every battle. This feat has never been repeated. Generals and commanders at every level sought to understand how this unit did the impossible. When John W. Brown became CEO of Stryker, it was a boutique medical device firm with a few innovative products and $17 million in sales. Under Brown's extraordinary leadership it evolved into a $4 billion market leader feared by competitors and highly regarded by health care professionals. Stryker accomplished this remarkable run by securing 20 percent earnings growth every quarter, every year - for 28 years. Again, this is a feat experts believed unachievable. By explaining the ingredients of these two leaders' secret sauce, Morton lays the foundation for current and future leaders to ensure their own teams' excellence. 1. Language: English.

The Nightingale-Conant Corporation, in cooperation with Sandler Systems Incorporated, is proud to present The Ultimate Sandler Sales Library - featuring legendary and historic recordings from the one and only David H. Sandler - the founder of the Sandler Selling System. David Sandler was a true revolutionary who was far ahead of his time. Back in 1966, something was wrong with the way selling was being taught, and David Sandler knew it. He was a struggling, young salesman who was troubled by the forced, rote way in which he had been trained to sell. It didn’t feel right, and what's more, it didn't work. So on his own, he decided to take charge of his sales calls. He started by making “verbal contracts” with his prospects - effectively challenging them to convince him to sell rather than trying to convince them to buy. His approach was radical. Unorthodox. Non-traditional. And dramatically effective. Sandler refined his sales philosophy into a comprehensive selling system, and founded the Sandler organization to share his unique approach with other sales professionals. Since his revolutionary methodology was founded on basic principles of the psychology of human behavior, it has stood the test of time. The current proof of their ongoing success lies in the success of tens of thousands of their clients, whose lives and careers are transformed every year. What David Sandler developed in the late 1960s, and expanded into a franchising operation in the 1980s, has now grown and developed into it’s current company name Sandler Training - an organization with a rich history that dominates the global training market, with more than 250 offices worldwide, providing instruction in 27 languages. While David Sandler passed away in 1995, his legacy lives on through the national entrepreneurial network of Sandler trainers and consultants who continue to deliver exceptional training to the marketplace. 1.
