This is a summary of Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest 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. When Jon Krakauer reached the summit of Mt. Everest in the early afternoon of May 10, 1996, he hadn't slept in 57 hours and was reeling from the brain-altering effects of oxygen depletion. As he turned to begin the perilous descent from 29,028 feet (roughly the cruising altitude of an Airbus jetliner), 20 other climbers were still pushing doggedly to the top, unaware that the sky had begun to roil with clouds. Into Thin Air is the definitive account of the deadliest season in the history of Everest by the acclaimed outside journalist and author of the best-selling Into the Wild. Taking the listener step by step from Katmandu to the mountain's deadly pinnacle, Krakauer has his listeners shaking on the edge of their seat. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Hawking.

Notre monde n'est qu'apparence. Et dans cet univers codé et réservé aux silhouettes jeunes et belles qui hantent les pages des magazines, nombreuses sont les femmes qui ne trouvent pas leur place. C'est le cas de Clotilde, une héroïne pas comme les autres puisqu'elle est pourvue d'une physionomie qualifiée dès sa petite enfance de "grosse, pataude, maladroite et laide". Au regard de cette étiquette qui lui colle à la peau, Clotilde s'est réfugiée dans un quotidien où elle tente de disparaître pour ne pas déranger le monde qui tourne sans elle. Tête baissée et corps enseveli sous une peau gonflée de kilos superflus, elle avance dans la vie à pas lents, avec une seule certitude, celle de ne pas avoir de place dans cette société. Son installation à Bordeaux, sa ville natale va l'entraîner dans de nouvelles aventures. Une seconde naissance. La découverte de voisines des plus étonnantes. Drôles, fantaisistes, et en quête d'un bonheur incertain. Puis, l'amour d'un enfant et qui sait, celui d'un homme ? Une nouvelle existence, presque entièrement réglée dans un quartier où l'on observe à la loupe et parfois au vitriol la vie des autres. La recherche d'un travail va la conduire par le plus heureux des hasards à pénétrer un cercle bien fermé, celui de l'art contemporain. C'est donc dans un musée en quête de création et d'esthétisme que Clotilde va s'épanouir. Un hymne à l'amitié, à la culture et à la différence. Une écriture décomplexée et vive qui fait l'éloge de la disgrâce. 1. French. Marie-Christine Letort. http://samples.audible.de/bk/sixt/000610/bk_sixt_000610_sample.mp3.
“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.

Sheila Jensen, desperate to invent a genetic cure, defies rules against combining animal and human DNA. She stirs outrage, so her fiancé and boss, Philip Ohl, blames her for the illegal and immoral work, destroying her career. Still, Sheila is motivated; her diagnosis will kill her, so she engineers her last ovum to make a deadly nerve-disorder cure. Risking her life, she bears the child, hoping her transferable DNA cure will work, but she can't find the cure in Gabriel's DNA. She loses faith; soon, her strength and health deteriorate. As Gabriel grows, her perception shifts. He is a prodigy who wins her wounded heart. She is shocked when he develops perfect blue wings at age five. All he wants to do is fly. Sheila can't contain him. When he flies, some of the watcher's consciousness joins him; his audience feels as if they fly, too. When video goes viral, devotees flock to watch the angel boy, hoping to join the ecstatic ride. Violent protesters arrive, too, spewing vitriol against him. Sheila flees with Gabriel, afraid Philip will claim her son. When he does so with a court order that shuts Sheila out, she fears for Gabriel. She knows the institution will do anything in the name of research. Gabriel has completely opened her heart, healed her, and given her a taste of unimagined freedom. Clearly, the only way to rescue him is to accept his expanded vision and allow him to teach her how to actually fly. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Caldwell.

In this hour, Jack Abramoff. He’s hardly a murderer. But to many in the Beltline, he’s the devil incarnate. Senator Conrad Burns, said “I wish he’d never been born.” Congresswoman Deborah Price said, “He is a creep, and we hate him.” Paul Begala summed it up when he said on Crossfire “Jack Abramoff, he’s scum.” How did this guy earn such vitriol? Jack Abramoff was the notorious lobbyist at the center of one of Washington’s most far-reaching corruption scandals.He served four years for fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials. His testimony brought down dozens of other public and elected officials. And he still owes 44 million dollars in restitution. Abramoff is out of jail now, and he told Anne Strainchamps he intends to spend the rest of his life making amends.Next, there’s one devil we NEVER sympathize with: the terrorist. But... Hold on. Not so fast, says filmmaker Marshall Curry. His documentary If a Tree Falls follows Daniel McGowan – a convicted terrorist… currently serving time. McGowan used arson as political protest with The Earth Liberation Front – a group the FBI considers America’s number one domestic terrorist threat.After that, there's a biblical concept we’ve been talking about – redemption. The dictionary defines it as deliverance from sin. Atonement for guilt. But are there – should there be – limits to the kind of sins that can be redeemed? What about mass murder? And finally, Jim Fleming responds to the documentary film If a Tree Falls that follows Daniel McGowan – a convicted terrorist… currently serving time. McGowan used arson as political protest with The Earth Liberation Front – a group the FBI considers America’s number one domestic terrorist threat. [Broadcast Date: May 30, 2012] 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."
