Four years after the destruction of the planeport, Earth remains cut off from Heaven. The angels and demons are in disarray, lacking direction and leadership. Someone has to step up and take control, and that person is...Mercury? But when the demoness Tiamat finds out about Mercury´s plan to reestablish contact with heaven, all hell breaks loose. Mercury finds himself at the center of a plot to rewrite Earth´s history, and the only way to stop it is to travel back in time to prevent the plot from coming to fruition. Along the way, he accidentally travels to multiple parallel universes, meeting several alternate versions of himself and tearing a gaping hole in the fabric of reality. Will the universe survive? Will Mercury be trapped in prehistoric Africa? Will we ever find out who Mercury´s favorite Gilmore Girls character is? Listen to Mercury Shrugs to find out! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Drex.

You´ve been lied to by the government. We shrug off this fact as an unfortunate reality. America is the land of the free, after all. Does it really matter whether our politicians bend the truth here and there? When the truth is traded for lies, our freedoms are diminished and don’t return. In Lies the Government Told You, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano reveals how America’s freedom, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, has been forfeited by a government more protective of its own power than its obligations to preserve our individual liberties. 1.

Every author has some peculiarity in his descriptions or in his style of writing. Those who do not like him, magnify it, shrug up their shoulders, and exclaim: there he is again! I, for my part, know very well how I can bring about this movement and this exclamation. It would happen immediately if I were to begin here, as I intended to do, with: ´´Rome has its Corso, Naples its Toledo´´ - ´´Ah! that Andersen; there he is again!´´ they would cry; yet I must, to please my fancy, continue quite quietly, and add: ´´But Copenhagen has its East Street.´´ 1.

Mead notices that modern students often shrug off or dismiss the mysteries and wisdom of the ages, as unimportant. He argues that spirit is entirely absent from the religion of today, because it has been divorced from science. And, what was once considered religion to the primitive man is very different than what is considered religion now. Psychology, what he called the science of antiquity, is what is needed for the student of the mysteries to regain their foothold in the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sandra Brautigam.

Self-Directed Brain Change is based on a key emerging insight from neuroscience: that to keep our ancestors alive, the human brain evolved to stick to negative experiences like Velcro and shrug off the positive ones like Teflon. The good news, teaches Rick Hanson, is that we can retrain our neural structure out of ´´sheer survival´´ mode and into one of greater well-being, mental clarity, and moment-to-moment appreciation. In this practice-focused program, Dr. Hanson teaches us how to: Shift our evolutionary fear and survival bias into one of ´´taking in the good´´ Use positive moments or states to rewire happiness as an enduring neural trait Heal difficult or painful emotional memories to ´´fill the hole in the heart´´ Increase and deepen daily experiences of love, gratitude, and contentment Build inner resilience in the face of stress and challenging situations, improve relationships, and much more Is it possible to rewire yourself for happiness? A growing body of evidence from this pioneering neuropsychologist and his colleagues says yes, we can—and experience greater fulfillment and contentment the moment we begin. With Self-Directed Brain Change, you will learn how. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rick Hanson PhD. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/sp/true/000565de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.
