The space between life and death is a moment. But it will remain alive in me for hundreds of thousands of future moments. One phone call. That's all it took to change Stephanie Wittels Wachs's life forever.... Her younger brother Harris, a star in the comedy world known for his work on shows like Parks and Recreation, had died of a heroin overdose. How do you make sense of such a tragic end to a life of so much hilarious brilliance?  In beautiful, unsentimental, and surprisingly funny prose, Stephanie Wittels Wachs alternates between her brother's struggle with addiction, which she learned about three days before her wedding, and the first year after his death, in all its emotional devastation. This compelling portrait of a comedic genius and a profound exploration of the love between siblings is The Year of Magical Thinking for a new generation of listeners. A heartbreaking but hopeful memoir of addiction, grief, and family, Everything Is Horrible and Wonderful will make you laugh, cry, and wonder if that possum on the fence is really your brother's spirit animal. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephanie Wittels Wachs. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/010361/bk_tant_010361_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

For a moment children get to leave this noisy and hectic world and submerge their formative imaginations into a timeless world of natural beauty and truth. Meet Johnny Chuck, who finds the best thing in the world while Billy the Mink is having a swimming party. Find out who saves Mrs. Redwing's speckled eggs and why Old Man Coyote has many voices. The stars of our adventures are the jovial Johnny Chuck, rascally Reddy Fox, cautious Bobby Coon, curious Peter Rabbit, wise Grandfather Frog, unhurried Jimmy Skunk, boastful Chatterer the Red Squirrel, dear Danny Meadow Mouse, stout Unc' Billy Possum, bossy Sammy Jay, cunning Blacky the Crow, fun-loving Billy Mink, friendly Jerry Muskrat, and Little Joe Otter - and let's not forget Old Mother West Wind, the Laughing Brook, the Smiling Pool, the Merry Little Breezes, the Purple Hills, and the Lone Little Path winding through the Green Meadows and wise old Mother Nature. Thornton W. Burgess, who shares his deep reverence for mother nature with his young listeners, got it right when he wrote stories about his local forests and meadows, brooks and ponds, and all the little animals that live, nest, and feed there. Through his stories children get to know and love animals and their habitats and learn important lessons from their lives and adventures - from problem solving to conflict resolution to the joy of discovery. They learn about the interconnected nature of community and the value each individual member brings to it. The animals are shown to live in a way rarely witnessed today - in a whole and united world. Their adventures will come alive via audiobooks narrated by prominent and engaging voices and celebrities. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Mensah.

Apparent death
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Apparent death is an antipredator adaptation. Many animals, such as sharks, beetles, snakes and the Virginia opossum, are capable of appearing to be dead to an observer, while otherwise alive. This could either be a reflex action, as in tonic immobility, or a defense mechanism for avoiding predators, as in thanatosis, which is probably adaptive, or "playing possum", which is more instinctive. Such actions often prove beneficial in the natural environment but, in the modern world of human intervention, can also be fatal. Tonic immobility is a natural state of paralysis that animals enter, in most cases when presented with a threat. Some scientists relate it to mating in certain animals like the shark. Some sharks can be placed in a tonic immobility state. The shark remains in this state of paralysis for an average of fifteen minutes before it recovers. Scientists have exploited this phenomenon to study shark behaviour. Orca whales are also known to exploit this in hunting sharks and rays. Usually when testing sharks under this "tonic" state, scientists will put a chemical plume in the water awakening the shark.

'Ha! Hum!' said Dr. Possum, again looking very wise. 'You need a change of air! You must travel about. Go on a journey, get out and see strange birds, and pick the pretty flowers. You don't get exercise enough.' 'Exercise enough!' cried Uncle Wiggily. 'Why, my goodness me sakes alive and a bunch of lilacs! Don't I play checkers almost every night with Grandfather Goosey Gander?' But the old rabbit gentleman took the doctor's advice -- and what did he do first but leap right into a bear's den of dangers!
