Flight for Life: An American Company's Dramatic...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The harrowing, true-life rescue of Nigerian burn victims and the race against time and distance... Flight for Life is the heart-stopping account of one of the most gripping rescue missions in African history, told by a doctor involved in saving the lives of Nigerian workers who became victims of a tragic American chemical company explosion. Dr. Stewart and his colleague moved mountains and cut red tape to fly patients to one of the premiere burn centers in the United States. At the time of the S. C. Johnson Company chemical plant explosion in 1982, there were no burn care centers in Africa. Its hospitals lacked the most basic accommodations for burn victims and would usually sedate anyone who was badly burned until they died. When the S. C. Johnson Company’s foreign subsidiary, based in Lagos, Nigeria, had a ruptured butane gas line that exploded, burning the skin and clothing of 29 Nigerian employees, the company began a race against time to help the victims of the catastrophe. Teaming with the University of Michigan Trauma Burn Center, S. C. Johnson’s executives, and the U.S. embassies in England and Nigeria, Dr. Stewart (Johnson’s corporate medical director) converted a DC-10 airliner into an intensive-burn-care flying hospital, staffed by a London medical team to keep the patients alive during the 11-hour transatlantic crossing through an unexpected and dangerous storm at sea. This real-life rescue narrative illuminates the heroic lengths dedicated individuals will go to when lives are at stake. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elijah Alexander.

Layne Davies needed a break - a break from the busybodies in her small town of Keeneston, Kentucky, and a break from dating men who turned into scared little boys upon meeting her father. That's why she was so excited to have been invited to speak at a medical conference in Charleston, South Carolina. Never did she think her whole life would change the second she stepped on that stage. Walker Greene can't talk about his job. He can't talk about what happened that one night off the coast of Nigeria when his team was ambushed. No one would believe him even if he could talk about it. But his training kept him alive until he was able to sneak back into his small hometown of Shadows Landing, South Carolina. But when people show up looking for Walker, he has no choice but to listen to his best friend, Dr. Gavin Faulkner, and turn to a total stranger for help.  Layne may be Gavin Faulkner's estranged cousin, but that doesn't mean she'll drop everything to work with someone who Gavin refuses to tell her anything about...until she sees Walker Greene. All her protective instincts come alive upon seeing the wounded soldier and Layne knows there's only one place to keep him safe - Keeneston. Walker becomes a hunted man, and Layne is determined to keep him safe as she finds herself drawn to him more and more each day. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric G. Dove.

The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls
15,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A bold and uncompromising feminist manifesto that shows women and girls how to defy, disrupt, and destroy the patriarchy by embracing the qualities they've been trained to avoid. Seizing upon the energy of the #MeToo movement, feminist activist Mona Eltahawy advocates a muscular, out-loud approach to teaching women and girls to harness their power through what she calls the "seven necessary sins" that women and girls are not supposed to commit: to be angry, ambitious, profane, violent, attention-seeking, lustful, and powerful. All the necessary "sins" that women and girls require to erupt. Eltahawy knows that the patriarchy is alive and well, and she is fed the hell up: Sexually assaulted during hajj at the age of fifteen. Groped on the dance floor of a night club in Montreal at fifty. Countless other injustices in the years between. Illuminating her call to action are stories of activists and ordinary women around the world-from South Africa to China, Nigeria to India, Bosnia to Egypt-who are tapping into their inner fury and crossing the lines of race, class, faith, and gender that make it so hard for marginalized women to be heard. Rather than teaching women and girls to survive the poisonous system they have found themselves in, Eltahawy arms them to dismantle it. Brilliant, bold, and energetic, The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls is a manifesto for all feminists in the fight against patriarchy.
