The Hydro-Metallurgy of Copper:Being an Account of Processes Adopted in the Hydro-Metallurgical Treatment of Cupriferous Ores, Including the Manufacture of Copper Vitriol (Classic Reprint) Manuel Eissler
Marc Basset, restaurant critic for a national newspaper, has made vitriol his trademark. His vivid cruelty makes his many readers laugh - until a chef roasts himself to death in his bread oven, leaving Bassett’s review of his restaurant stuck to the door. When Marc learns of the chef’s suicide, he experiences a new sensation - remorse. By apologising to the wife and daughter, he begins to experience levels of self-satisfaction that he never thought possible. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jay Rayner.

From one of the most internationally admired political thinkers, a controversial polemic on the failures of identity politics and what comes next for the left - in America and beyond.Following the shocking results of the US election of 2016, public intellectuals across the globe offered theories and explanations, but few were met with such vitriol, panic, and debate as Mark Lilla’s. The Once and Future Liberal is a passionate plea to liberals to turn from the divisive politics of identity and develop a vision of the future that can persuade all citizens that they share a common destiny. Driven by a sincere desire to protect society’s most vulnerable, the left has unwittingly balkanized the electorate, encouraged self-absorption rather than solidarity, and invested its energies in social movements rather than party politics. Identity-focused individualism has insidiously conspired with amoral economic individualism to shape an electorate with little sense of a shared future and near-contempt for the idea of the common good. Now is the time to re-build a sense of common feeling and purpose, and a sense of duty to one another. A fiercely argued, important book, enlivened by acerbic wit and erudition, The Once and Future Liberal is essential listening for our times. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charles Constant.

Erscheint im Vinyl-Format. Während die Jahreszeiten zusammenlaufen und der Wind von Norden her kalt bläst, sind Stilla wieder unruhig - gedrängt von den mächtigen Naturgewalten, diese irdischen Energien in einen bittersüßen Mahlstrom zu verwandeln, düster und doch seltsam tröstlich für diejenigen, die auf Nachrichten aus Schweden warten. Stilla erkundet die äußeren Grenzen des menschlichen Sinneszustandes und hinterfragt die Grenzen der Erfahrung und bittet uns, unsere ursprüngliche Natur zu erreichen und zu kontaktieren und kreativ zu werden. Synviljor ist in der Etymologie ähnlich wie ´synvillor´, was auf Englisch ´optische Illusion´ bedeutet. Dieser kleine Leckerbissen mag vielleicht ein Zufall sein, aber zweifellos ist er in gewisser Weise eine angemessene Analogie für das Werk der Band, da das Artwork des Albums für ihre Alben einen dazu anregen soll, eine eher schmackhafte Form von nordischem, von der Natur inspiriertem Black Metal zu erwarten, nur für einen säuerlichen, beißenden Angriff auf die Sinne. Synviljor verkörpert diesen Loki-esken spielerischen Trick des Geistes mehr denn je, denn das Vitriol schneidet tiefer als je zuvor - vielleicht ein Zeichen für den kältesten, härtesten Winter, der kommen wird. Synviljor´´ ist das vierte Studioalbum der Band, auf dem sie die Mischung aus progressiven Elementen und klassischem skandinavischem Black Metal der 90er Jahre fortsetzen!´´

Da inspektør West fra Scotland Yard vil komme en skrigende kvinde til undsaetning, får han til sin egen store overraskelse smidt vitriol i ansigtet. En eller anden har forsøgt at blinde ham. Hos Scotland Yard arbejder man snart ud fra teorien om, at det er kvindens forsmåede elsker, der står bag det voldsomme overfald. Men så modtager Wests kone et anonymt trusselsbrev, og det står klart for West, at en uhyggelig person et eller andet sted derude naerer et indaedt had til ham. 1. Danish.

´´What have you done for Ireland? How have you answered the Call? Are you pleased with the part you’re playing in the job that demands us all? Have you changed the tweed for the khaki to serve with rank and file, as your comrades are gladly serving, or isn’t it worth your while?” – An extract from a World War I recruitment poster There are very few national relationships quite as complicated and enigmatic as the one that exists between the English and the Irish. For two peoples so interconnected by geography and history, the depth of animosity that is often expressed is difficult at times to understand. At the same time, historic links of family and clan, and common Gaelic roots, have at times fostered a degree of mutual regard, interdependence, and cooperation that is also occasionally hard to fathom. During World War I, for example, Ireland fought for the British Empire as part of that empire, and the Irish response to the call to arms was at times just as enthusiastic as that of other British dominions such as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. And yet, at the same time, plots were unearthed to cooperate with the Germans in toppling British rule in Ireland, which would have virtually ensured an Allied defeat. In World War II, despite Irish neutrality, 12,000 Irish soldiers volunteered to join the Khaki line, returning after the war to the scorn and vitriol of a great many of their more radical countrymen. One of the most bitter and divisive struggles in the history of the British Isles, and in the history of the British Empire, played out over the question of Home Rule and Irish independence, and then later still as the British province of Northern Ireland grappled within itself for the right to secede from the United Kingdom or the right to remain. 1.

From Jessica Knoll - author of Luckiest Girl Alive, the instant New York Times best seller and the best-selling debut novel of 2015 - comes a blisteringly paced thriller starring competitive sisters whose dark secrets and lies result in murder when they sign on to a reality TV show. When five hypersuccessful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder.... Brett´s the fan favorite. Tattooed and only 27, the meteoric success of her spin studio - and her recent engagement to her girlfriend - has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her castmates. Kelly, Brett´s older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now - a role that requires her to protect their shocking secret. Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful best-selling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, nonworking actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends - and resentment soon breeds contempt. Lauren, the start-up world´s darling whose drinking has gotten out of control, is Goal Diggers´ recovery narrative - everyone loves a comeback story. And Jen, made rich and famous through her cultishly popular vegan food line plays a holistic hippie for the cameras but is perhaps the most ruthless of them all when the cameras are off. The Favorite Sister explores the invisible barriers that prevent women from rising up the ranks in today´s America - and offers a scathing take on the oft-lionized bonds of sisterhood and the relentless pressure to stay young, relevant, and salable. 1.

National Bestseller A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt. Everest, saw nothing that ´´suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down.´´ He was wrong. The storm, which claimed five lives and left countless more--including Krakauer´s--in guilt-ridden disarray, would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air, Krakauer´s epic account of the May 1996 disaster. By writing Into Thin Air, Krakauer may have hoped to exorcise some of his own demons and lay to rest some of the painful questions that still surround the event. He takes great pains to provide a balanced picture of the people and events he witnessed and gives due credit to the tireless and dedicated Sherpas. He also avoids blasting easy targets such as Sandy Pittman, the wealthy socialite who brought an espresso maker along on the expedition. Krakauer´s highly personal inquiry into the catastrophe provides a great deal of insight into what went wrong. But for Krakauer himself, further interviews and investigations only lead him to the conclusion that his perceived failures were directly responsible for a fellow climber´s death. Clearly, Krakauer remains haunted by the disaster, and although he relates a number of incidents in which he acted selflessly and even heroically, he seems unable to view those instances objectively. In the end, despite his evenhanded and even generous assessment of others´ actions, he reserves a full measure of vitriol for himself. This updated trade paperback edition of Into Thin Air includes an extensive new postscript that sheds fascinating light on the acrimonious debate that flared between Krakauer and Everest guide Anatoli Boukreev in the wake of the tragedy. ´´I have no doubt that Boukreev´s intentions were good on summit day,´´ writes Krakauer in the postscript, dated August 1999. ´´What disturbs me, though, was Boukreev´s refusal to acknowledge the possibility that he made even a single poor decision. Never did he indicate that perhaps it wasn´t the best choice to climb without gas or go down ahead of his clients.´´ As usual, Krakauer supports his points with dogged research and a good dose of humility. But rather than continue the heated discourse that has raged since Into Thin Air´s denouncement of guide Boukreev, Krakauer´s tone is conciliatory; he points most of his criticism at G. Weston De Walt, who coauthored The Climb, Boukreev´s version of events. And in a touching conclusion, Krakauer recounts his last conversation with the late Boukreev, in which the two weathered climbers agreed to disagree about certain points. Krakauer had great hopes to patch things up with Boukreev, but the Russian later died in an avalanche on another Himalayan peak, Annapurna I. In 1999, Krakauer received an Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters--a prestigious prize intended ´´to honor writers of exceptional accomplishment.´´ According to the Academy´s citation, ´´Krakauer combines the tenacity and courage of the finest tradition of investigative journalism with the stylish subtlety and profound insight of the born writer. His account of an ascent of Mount Everest has led to a general reevaluation of climbing and of the commercialization of what was once a romantic, solitary sport; while his account of the life and death of Christopher McCandless, who died of starvation after challenging the Alaskan wilderness, delves even more deeply and disturbingly into the fascination of nature and the devastating effects of its lure on a young and curious mind.´´
ANAAL NATHRAKH aus Birmingham infizieren die Massen im Herbst mit ihrem heiß erwarteten neuen Album Desideratum´´, dem Nachfolger zum 2012er Kritikerliebling ´´Vanitas´´. Produziert hat einmal mehr Gitarrist/Bassist und Programmierer Mick Kenney selbst, wobei der Gesang in den Necrodeath Studios in Birmingham aufgenommen und die Musik im The Black Flamingo in Orange County in Kalifornien eingespielt wie abgemischt wurde. Im Ergebnis stehen zehn emotional traumatisierende Hymnen akustischer Verkommenheit, die das pure Böse verkörpern. ANAAL NATHRAKH - Kenny, zusammen mit Sänger David Hunt aka V.I.T.R.I.O.L. - bestehen aus einem einzigen Grund: als Soundtrack zum Armageddon, als akustische Essenz von Bosheit, Hass und Gewalt, um den wahren Geist des Kranken in musikalische Extreme zu führen. Seit ihrer Gründung 1999 hat sich das hinterhältige Duo den Ruf erarbeitet, all dies zu verkörpern. Mit sowohl Geschrei als auch klarem Gesang vor einem Hintergrund aus kontrolliertem Chaos, stellen ANAAL NATHRAKH nichts anderes als unverhohlene Verstörung dar. Ihre bewegte Geschichte besteht nicht nur aus sieben begeistert aufgenommene Alben sowie einer EP, sondern auch aus Kollaborationen mit großen Namen wie Attila Csihar (Mayhem), Shane Embury und Danny Herrera (Napalm Death), Nick Barker (Testament, Dimmu Borgir), Joe Horvath (Circle Of Dead Children) oder Sethlans Teitan (Watain) zusammengearbeitet. Hinzu kommen ein Auftritt bei BBC Radio 1, zu dem sie die schmerzlich vermisste Ikone John Peel persönlich einlud, ein Headliner-Gig beim renommierten Kultfestival Inferno in Norwegen als internationales Live-Debüt, zahllose Platzierungen In Jahresbesten-Polls, ´´Album des Monats´´-Auszeichnungen und Titel-Storys in führenden Magazinen wie dem Terrorizer, die ANAAL NATHRAKHs Status als eine der führenden extremen Bands unweigerlich zementierten. ANAAL NATHRAKHs einzigartiger Sound zeichnet sich durch musikalische Unbezähmbarkeit aus, Erfindungsreichtum und Breite gepaart mit unfassbarer, entschieden misanthropischer, hoher Intelligenz. Ihren Songs wohnt eine greifbare Bedrohlichkeit inne, die im Metal-Bereich ohne Beispiel bleibt. In diesem Jahr haben sich ANAAL NATHRAKH das Ziel gesetzt ihre Mission, die Erde in die Sonne stürzen zu lassen, weiter voranzutreiben.´´
In early 2012, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh claimed that Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University law student who advocated for insurance coverage of contraceptives, ´´wants to be paid to have sex.´´ Over the next few days, Limbaugh attacked Fluke personally, often in crude terms, while a powerful backlash grew. But perhaps what was most notable about the incident was that it wasn´t unusual. From Limbaugh´s venomous attacks on Fluke to liberal radio host Mike Malloy´s suggestion that Bill O´Reilly ´´drink a vat of poison... and choke to death´´, over-the-top discourse in today´s political opinion media is pervasive. Anyone who observes the skyrocketing number of incendiary political opinion shows on television and radio might conclude that political vitriol on the airwaves is fueled by the increasingly partisan American political system. But in The Outrage Industry Jeffrey M. Berry and Sarah Sobieraj show how the proliferation of outrage says more about regulatory, technological, and cultural changes, than it does about our political inclinations. Berry and Sobieraj tackle the mechanics of outrage rhetoric, exploring its various forms, such as mockery, emotional display, fear mongering, audience flattery, and conspiracy theories. They then investigate the impact of outrage rhetoric on a contemporary political landscape that features frequent straight-party voting in Congress. Outrage tactics have also facilitated the growth of the Tea Party, a movement which appeals to older, white conservatives and has dragged the GOP farther away from the demographically significant moderates whose favor it should be courting. Finally, The Outrage Industry examines how these shows sour our own political lives. Drawing from a rich base of evidence, this book forces all of us to consider the negative consequences that flow from our increasingly hyper-partisan political media.
