Have you asked the question, ´´What are GMOs?´´ Where did they come from? Who creates them? How will they affect myself and my family? Are they dangerous? If so, what can I do about it? What you´ll find out by listening to this audiobook: An objective overview of what is meant by plant genetic engineering (GMO) and an insight as to where the science and technology came from.

In this outstanding international thriller by Jon McGoran, Detective Doyle Carrick is awakened in the middle of the night by frantic banging on his front door, followed by gunfire. Ron Hartwell, a complete stranger, is dying on his doorstep. A halfhearted investigation labels the murder a domestic dispute, with Miriam, Ron´s widow, the sole suspect. Doyle discovers the Hartwells both worked for a big biotech company and suspects something else is going on, but it´s not his case. Then Miriam tracks him down and tells him her story. Miriam and Ron had been working in Haiti and visiting her friend, Regi Baudet, the deputy health minister, when they stumbled upon a corporate cover-up of tainted food aid that sickened an entire village - and was 100 percent fatal. They were coming to Doyle to blow the whistle. Before Miriam can say more, they are attacked by gunmen, and she flees then disappears. Doyle tracks her to Haiti, a country on the brink of political chaos. Working with Miriam and Regi, he must untangle a web of deceit and unconscionable corporate greed in order to stop an epidemic of even greater evil before it is released onto an unsuspecting world. 1.

Political gridlock in Washington…the lingering effects of the financial crisis…structural problems such as unemployment and the skills gap of our work force…the mediocre K-12 educational system. Are our best days behind us? Joel Kurtzman persuasively shows why all the talk about America´s decline is not only baseless but dead wrong. Our best days, are, in fact, ahead of us. Four transformational forces - unrivaled manufacturing depth, soaring levels of creativity, massive new energy sources, and gigantic amounts of capital waiting to be invested - have been gathering steam. When combined they will provide the foundation for a much stronger economy, robust growth, and broad-based prosperity that will propel the United States to new heights. One endlessly repeated anxiety is that ´´we don´t make anything here, anymore.´´ The reality, though, is that the US is the world’s dominant manufacturing power - and growing. American companies produce 20 percent of the world´s goods in the US and perhaps another 15 to 20 percent outside our country. And much of what we make is recession-proof - such as software, jetliners, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and food. Kurtzman reveals the stories of the unsung heroes who are the creative force leading the second American century, describing the payoff of the investment in our best minds. American companies have stunning levels of talent and creativity at work in the world´s fastest growing economic sectors - biotech, pharmaceuticals, computer hardware and software, telecommunications, advanced manufacturing, materials science, and aeronautical and space engineering. In these fields, Americans are without peer and consistently break new ground. We are coming to the realization that America is no longer beholden to the despots of foreign energy. Thanks to advances in technology developed in the US, we now have among the world´s largest energy reserves, and are richer in energy resources than Saud... 1. Language: English.
