For decades, Robert R. Fowler was a dominant force in Canadian foreign affairs. In one heart-stopping minute, all of that changed. On December 14, 2008, Fowler, acting as the UN Secretary General's Special Envoy to Niger, was kidnapped by Al Qaeda, becoming the highest-ranked UN official ever held captive. Along with his colleague Louis Guay, Fowler lived, slept, and ate with his captors for nearly five months, gaining rare first-hand insight into the motivations of the world's most feared terror group. Fowler's capture, release, and subsequent media appearances have helped shed new light on foreign policy and security issues as we enter the second decade of the "War on Terror." A Season in Hell is Fowler's compelling story of his captivity, told in his own words, but it is also a startlingly frank discussion about the state of a world redefined by clashing civilizations. 1.

When W. L. Ham approaches the Nagual Lujan Matus for insight into enigmatic events that have marked his awareness, what he learns revolutionizes everything he thought he knew. Realizing that he has found an authentic guide, Bill enters into a intensive apprenticeship and directly begins to experience the multiplex of luminous interactivity that is our living matrix as never before. Like countless others, Bill had been galvanized when concepts like "the energy double', "dreaming awareness', and "first and second attention', were introduced in the 1960s. Exploring these fascinating propositions in his own waking and dreaming life, he is faced with discoveries and challenges utterly unaccounted for by conventional definitions of reality. Bill begins faithfully documenting his exchanges with Lujan, and the result is a most extraordinary manual on the crucial yet little understood subject of reclaiming our dimensional sovereignty. A friendly flow of dialogue belies the gravity of this material, as Lujan deftly elucidates the very fabric of existence with humble yet unequivocal authority. These are no second-hand sorcery tales but genuine revelations from a seer bound by his inevitability to communicate what he knows. Describing the innermost workings of the holographic universe with rare precision, these teachings decode riddles of perception that have long been surrounded with confusion, providing a luminous bridge to our inter-dimensional potential as human beings. The sometimes-alarming nature of what Lujan reveals is tempered by the multifaceted affirmation that the key to finding freedom lies in truly applying ourselves to the moment that continually escapes us, guided only by that most precious instrument of divination, our heart. 1.

Welcome to the colorful Ulster village of Ballybucklebo, where two doctors work hand in hand to mend the bodies and spirits of the town's diverse and engaging inhabitants. But who is looking after the wounded hearts of the doctors? After less than a year, young Barry Laverty, M.B., is settling in to the village, with only a few months to go before he becomes a full partner in the practice. He's looking forward to becoming a fixture in the community, until an unexpected romantic reversal gives him second thoughts. Will he truly be happy tending to routine coughs and colds for the rest of his career? After all, even when a more challenging case comes along, like a rare tropical disease, all he can do is pass it on to a qualified specialist or big-city hospital. As much as Barry enjoys the rough and tumble of life in County Down, is running a humble GP's shop all he wants out of life? Barry's mentor, Doctor Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly, is going through some personal upheavals as well. After mourning his deceased wife for decades, he's finally allowed a new woman into his life. But this budding courtship is not going over well with Kinky Kincaid, the doctors' redoubtable housekeeper, who fears having her position usurped by O'Reilly's new flame. Tact, diplomacy, and a fair amount of blarney may be required to restore peace to the household. Meanwhile, life goes on in Ballybucklebo, presenting both doctors with plenty of distractions from their own troubles. From a mysterious outbreak at the local school to a complicated swindle involving an unlucky racehorse, the two partners will need all of their combined wit and compassion to put things right again - just in time for their lives to change forever. 1.

In this hour, we explore some of the fundamental mysteries of life - from how it first started on Earth to the possibility of supremely intelligent life on other planets and why technology is evolving like life itself. We begin with a rare recording of Nobel Prize winning physicist Edwin Schrodinger and comments on his book What Is Life? from Nobel Prize winning biologists James Watson and Harold Varmus. Next, we hear from Ken Miller, co-author of the most widely used biology textbook in American high schools, and Craig Venter, widely regarded as one of science's leading innovators. Venter, who's come as close as anyone has to creating life in a test tube, tells Steve Paulson what drives him. And we hear from some ordinary people about what they think life is. Then, University of Wisconsin geochemist Nita Sahai talks with Anne Strainchamps about how life might have begun on Earth. On the other hand, maybe the Earth itself is alive. That's the remarkable idea behind the Gaia hypothesis. James Lovelock came up with it in the 1960s and at first no one would take him seriously. Lovelock, now in his nineties and one of our most celebrated scientists, tells Steve Paulson where the Gaia theory came from and how it's evolved. After that, Kevin Kelly is one of the founders of Wired magazine. He's also the author of a provocative book called What Technology Wants. Kelly tells Jim Fleming that the sum total of our technology - what he calls "the technicum" - is taking on the properties of life itself. And finally, anthropologist Tom Boellstorff takes us on a tour through the virtual world of Second Life. Astro-biologist Paul Davies chairs the SETI Post-Detection Task Group and is the author of The Eerie Silence: Renewing Our Search for Alien Intelligence. He tells Steve Paulson that alien intelligence might be stranger than anything Hollywood has dreamt up. [Broadcast Date: November 24, 2010] 1. Language: English.

Back in the late 90s, at the beginning of the dot com bubble, a man named Pierre Omidyar founded an online platform called AuctionWeb. Back then it was kind of an online fair for collectors who bought and sold various items online via bidding and auction. But within a decade, ActionWeb transformed itself, rebranded as eBay and become the giant multi-billion dollar e-commerce site where literally anyone, from 20-year-old college kid to 40-year-old moms can sell any kinds of goods online. eBay soon became the platform for professional online retailers worldwide, with operations spanning more than 30 countries. For the past two decades, millions of people have been using eBay to earn some extra cash or to sell unused items which could be useful to others. There are people whose first introduction to eBay happened when they were clearing their room and found old vinyl LP records and when they used eBay to sell them, they found out they were worth more than $500! You would be amazed to know that how much an old He-man action figure is worth on eBay, or those Pokémon cards that you once used to collect but totally forgot about it. Some vintage collectors' items are worth $1,000-$20,000 now and if you own such rare items, thousands of dollars are just few mouse clicks away! But all of these are just the tip of a huge iceberg. This is what people do when they want to sell second-hand items online. But eBay can offer more than that. It is a platform to build your own empire of successful e-commerce. When huge Internet enthusiast Pierre had the idea of eBay (the myth is that his wife influenced him to come up with this), his goal was to fill the gap in the market, a gap between potential buyers and sellers. He wanted to build a network so that both parties can communicate to each other freely and easily without any third party in between. So he built eBay (AuctionWeb) as a level playing field where similarly-minded people could come and share their interest 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Norgaard.
