A deeply panoramic tour of the night, from its brightest spots to the darkest skies we have left. A starry night is one of nature´s most magical wonders. Yet in our artificially lit world, three-quarters of Americans´ eyes never switch to night vision and most of us no longer experience true darkness. In The End of Night, Paul Bogard restores our awareness of the spectacularly primal, wildly dark night sky and how it has influenced the human experience across everything from science to art. From Las Vegas´ Luxor Beam - the brightest single spot on this planet - to nights so starlit the sky looks like snow, Bogard blends personal narrative, natural history, science, and history to shed light on the importance of darkness - what we´ve lost, what we still have, and what we might regain - and the simple ways we can reduce the brightness of our nights tonight. 1.

It seems that ever since mankind was kicked out of the Garden of Eden for eating the forbidden fruit, we´ve been trying to get back in. Or, at least, we´ve been wondering where the garden might have been. St. Augustine had a theory, and so did medieval monks, John Calvin, and Christopher Columbus. But when Darwin´s theory of evolution permanently altered our understanding of human origins, shouldn´t the search for a literal Eden have faded away? Not so fast. In Paradise Lust, Brook Wilensky-Lanford introduces readers to the enduring modern quest to locate the Garden of Eden on Earth. It is an obsession that has consumed Mesopotamian archaeologists, German Baptist ministers, British irrigation engineers, and the first president of Boston University, among many others. These quixotic Eden seekers all started with the same brief Bible verses, but each ended up at a different spot on the globe: Florida, the North Pole, Ohio, China, and, of course, Iraq. Evocative of Tony Horwitz and Sarah Vowell, Wilensky-Lanford writes of these unusual characters and their searches with sympathy and wit. Charming, enlightening, and utterly unique, Paradise Lust is a century-spanning history that will take you to places you never imagined. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christine Marshall.

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensführung, Management, Organisation, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Walk-In interviews are one of the interview methods that the employers or organizations can choose to seek for potential employees. Walk-in interviews are spontaneous and unplanned. It is normally very short with a few questions. Walk-In interviews are great for those companies who wishes to employ more than 30 employees and above. It is because the costs to create such interviews are extremely high. The researcher went to several walk-in interviews to find that this interview is a definite costly for the organization. It is because the company needs to pay a large amount of overtime to fulfill the needs of labors. For example, the employers use Saturday or Sunday to interview potential employees for the organizations. Those labor times are required to reimburse to the employers. Based on the researcher experience, this kind of interview causes some problems for the interviewee compared to the interviewer. Hence, the purpose of this research is to experiment the various types of walk-in interviews that the interviewee has been experiencing. Then, the researcher needed to construct on a good walk-in interview model that will not increase the costs, yet improve the employees selection programmes. It benefits the organization in searching for the perfect employees to fill the empty position spot. The aim of this study is to understand the reasons behind interview methods chosen by the organizations especially walk-in interview. Since walk-in interviews are costly, the researcher is mainly focused on the areas where costs may exceed the benefits for the company. Even, the costs are greater than benefits for individuals. Hence, the researcher would like to know the costs allocated for the walk-in interview as well as their benefits and consequences for both individuals and organizations. Other than that, the researcher will experiment this by undergoing those walk-in interviews to gather the methods of walk-in interviews available. In this case, the researcher will be able to know the success rate of walk-in interview compared to the costs allocated for such employment methods.

Peter Manuel killed repeatedly, both random and targeted victims, including men, women, and children, because he enjoyed the rush. As a lifelong criminal, Manuel mainly committed property crime. That all changed when his heart was broken. The woman he´d been engaged to called off the wedding and left him, causing Peter to snap. His violence escalated then, and Peter terrorized various communities for almost two years. His cockiness had no end, and he went as far as giving a police inspector a ride while the inspector was searching for one of the teenage girls Peter had murdered. Peter toyed with the detective and advised him he thought the police were looking in the wrong spot for the girl. Ultimately, Peter´s arrogance and insatiable need for attention led to his demise; one that made him meet his own executioner as he hung from a noose on prison gallows. 1. Language: English.
