Behind the walls of respectability is a world exploding with crime, sin, and the darkest magic of all. The rain beats down on the hot New Orleans streets. A derelict staggers, no longer a man, but a zombie, a vessel emptied by voodoo sorcery and poured full of another's will.This is the land of lace curtains and Mardi Gras. This is the world of the bayou, and sizzling crawfish, and a man in white who can kill at any distance.A storm of corporate greed and cruel vengeance is sweeping through New Orleans, descending on a young advertising executive (Nightlife‘s Justin Gray), who fears he may be selling his soul along with brand names, a weary ex-CIA agent, and a Caribbean chauffeur on the run from enemies he can't understand.Two powerful businessmen, one legitimate, the other a criminal, have built a common empire. Now it is coming apart in a tidal wave of bloodshed and shattered lives, flooding the Delta with voodoo - the dark magic of darker saints.PRAISE FOR THE DARKER SAINTS:“Southern Louisiana is always a terrifically atmospheric setting for hot, humid, moldering, multicultural horror. Hodge uses his setting well...moves along with the speed of an airboat skimming a steaming bayou. The action's hot, the magic is dark, and you start getting a little sorry for Justin, considering all the shit he gets into in the space of just two novels... This is a quite literate edge of night in which the morning apparently never comes.” (Ed Bryant, in Locus)“You've got the spicy ingredients for a dish so intense and uncompromising, it'll leave your eyes stinging... If you're tired of predictable horror yarns, then step into Hodge's dark and obsessive world, where lovers circle each other like enemies, brothers see murder as a tool of capitalism, and ancient voodoo gods descend to earth to possess willing subjects. Hodge's work often emphasizes that the real world can be scarier than the supernatural. The Darker Saints 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wes Freeman.

Harpoon (Missile)

The Harpoon is an all-weather, over-the-horizon, anti-ship missile system, developed and manufactured by McDonnell Douglas. In 2004, Boeing delivered the 7,000th Harpoon unit since the weapon's introduction in 1977. The missile system has also been further developed into a land-strike weapon, the Standoff Land Attack Missile. The regular Harpoon uses active radar homing, and a low-level, sea-skimming cruise trajectory to improve survivability and lethality.

Landing on the Edge of Eternity: Twenty-Four Ho...

Before World War II, Normandy's Plage d'Or coast was best known for its sleepy villages and holiday destinations. Early in 1944, German commander Field Marshal Erwin Rommel took one look at the gentle, sloping sands and announced 'They will come here!' He was referring to 'Omaha Beach'-the prime American D-Day landing site. The beach was subsequently transformed into three miles of lethal, bunker-protected arcs of fire, with seaside chalets converted into concrete strongpoints, fringed by layers of barbed wire and mines. The Germans called it 'the Devil's Garden.' When Company A of the US 116th Regiment landed on Omaha Beach in D-Day's first wave on 6th June 1944, it lost 96% of its effective strength. Sixteen teams of US engineers arriving in the second wave were unable to blow the beach obstacles, as first wave survivors were still sheltering behind them. This was the beginning of the historic day that Landing on the Edge of Eternity narrates hour by hour-rom midnight to midnight-tracking German and American soldiers fighting across the beachhead.  Mustered on their troop transport decks at 2am, the American infantry departed in landing craft at 5am. Skimming across high waves, deafened by immense broadsides from supporting battleships and weak from seasickness, they caught sight of land at 6.15. Eleven minutes later, the assault was floundering under intense German fire. Two and a half hours in, General Bradley, commanding the landings aboard USS Augusta, had to decide if to proceed or evacuate. On June 6th there were well over 2,400 casualties on Omaha Beach - easily D-Day's highest death toll. The Wehrmacht thought they had bludgeoned the Americans into bloody submission, yet by mid-afternoon, the American troops were ashore. Why were the casualties so grim, and how could the Germans have failed? Juxtaposing the American experience-pinned down, swamped by a rising tide, facing young Wehrmacht soldiers fighting desperately for their lives, Kershaw draws on eyewitness accounts, memories, letters, and post-combat reports to expose the true horrors of Omaha Beach. These are stories of humanity, resilience, and dark humor; of comradeship and a gritty patriotism holding beleaguered men together. Landing on the Edge of Eternity is a dramatic historical ride through an amphibious landing that looked as though it might never succeed.

A Full Moon Over a Desolate Plain

The air on Colfax Avenue roils with the thick smell of sweet half-burnt gas coming off the finned behemoths rolling along this asphalt river. It carries the flotsam and jetsam of America toward a mythical land of dreams on the far side of the mountains to the west. Unlike everyone else, Mike Ashford has no dreams. He does have an aching emptiness that he's driven to fill by skimming the hopes of the steady stream of people headed for somewhere else.

Unterrichtsentwurf aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Englisch - Pädagogik, Didaktik, Sprachwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Studienseminar für Gymnasien Wiesbaden, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Um ein Bild von Grossbritannien zu vermitteln, bedarf es mehr als einzelner, isolierter Texte über das Land. Zum vollständigen Bild gehören vor allem auch Artikel AUS dem Land. Auf einer Wiki-Plattform im Internet haben Schüler aktuelle Artikel aus Guardian, Independent, Telegraph und Times sowie von den BBC News zusammengestellt und für einander aufbereitet. Lesetechniken wie das Skimming und Scanning sowie das Nachschlagen zentraler Vokabeln und das Strukturieren der Artikel helfen den Mitschülern den Sinn schnell und effizient zu erschliessen. In der Sicherung erstellen die Schüler ein eigens Bild, das sich für sie aus der Lektüre der unterschiedlichen Artikel ergibt. Die angebotenen Artikel stammen unter anderem aus den Bereichen Politik, Gesellschaft, Unterhaltung, Wissenschaft und Sport. Am Ende werten die Schüler aus, welche Lesestrategien sie auf ihrer selbständigen Informationssuche weiter gebracht haben. Für sie öffnet sich so der Weg zu englischen Nachrichtenformaten, die sie sich von nun auch in Eigenregie und nach persönlichen Interessen tagesaktuell erschliessen können.
