After countless iterations before it, nature has finally created a masterpiece: an influenza strain with an uncommonly high mortality rate. The authorities scramble in an attempt to isolate the contagion but succeed only in slowing its spread. Though hearing the initial reports half a world away, young, carefree Vincent isn´t fazed by the news. It isn´t until local people are hospitalized with the same symptoms the news has been warning against that he takes note and starts to consider the possible implications. Now faced with the harsh new reality unfolding around him, he must act to survive as his supplies vanish as quickly as his options. This is Vincent´s story; this is his struggle.... 1.

Lead generation plays a vital role in the growth of every business and in fact a business can never witness success without proper generation of leads. A lead is nothing but a person or company that has shown interest to a particular product or service. And lead generation refers to the marketing process of initiating the customer’s interest in a particular product or service. In order to sustain in the market and to have a good grip, every business whether small or big needs to continue this process. Leads are mainly of two types, sales lead and marketing leads. Sales lead is generated on the basis of some factors such as income, age, psychographics, etc. Sales leads are generated and sold to multiple advertisers while marketing leads are brand-specific. So, this kind of lead is generated for a particular advertiser that is resold only once. Lead generation involves several strategies and a business can reach the height of success if they can successfully generate leads following the right strategies. 1. Language: English.

The instant classic that changed the way we saw World War II and an entire generation of Americans, from the beloved journalist whose own iconic career has lasted more than 50 years. In this magnificent testament to a nation and her people, Tom Brokaw brings to life the extraordinary stories of a generation that gave new meaning to courage, sacrifice, and honor. From military heroes to community leaders to ordinary citizens, he profiles men and women who served their country with valor, then came home and transformed it: Senator Daniel Inouye, decorated at the front, fighting prejudice at home; Martha Settle Putney, one of the first black women to serve in the newly formed WACs; Charles Van Gorder, a doctor who set up a MASH-like medical facility in the middle of battle, then opened a small clinic in his hometown; Navy pilot and future president George H. W. Bush, assigned to read the mail of the enlisted men under him, who says that in doing so he ´´learned about life”; and many other laudable Americans. To this generation that gave so much and asked so little, Brokaw offers eloquent tribute in true stories of everyday heroes in extraordinary times. Praise for The Greatest Generation:´´Moving... a tribute to the members of the World War II generation to whom we Americans and the world owe so much.” (The New York Times Book Review)´´Full of wonderful, wrenching tales of a generation of heroes. Tom Brokaw reminds us what we are capable of as a people. An inspiring read for those who wish their spirits lifted.” (Colin L. Powell)´´Offers welcome inspiration... It is impossible to read even a few of these accounts and not be touched by the book’s overarching message: We who followed this generation have lived in the midst of greatness.” (The Washington Times)´´Entirely compelling.” (The Wall Street Journal) 1.

Millennials have disrupted almost every major industry. Whether you’re a parent trying to raise them, a pastor trying to reach them, or an employer trying to retain them, they’re disruptive. As the largest living generation, millennials are one of the most studied but misunderstood groups of our day. And the chasm between the generations is only getting wider.Speaker and founder of the Initiative Network Grant Skeldon pulls back the confusing statistics about millennials to reveal the root issue: it’s not a millennial problem, it’s a discipleship problem. Millennials are known for their struggle to hold jobs, reluctance to live on their own, and alarming migration away from the church. And now our culture is feeling the results of a mentor-less, fatherless generation. But how do you start discipling young people when you struggle to connect with them?Written by a millennial, The Passion Generation will guide you beyond the stats of what millennials are doing to the why they’re doing it and how we can all move toward healthy community. With wit, compassion, and startling insights, this audiobook shares stories and studies drawn from Skeldon’s years of working to bridge generational gaps. In his signature conversational style, Skeldon offers researched strategies that will spark healthy connections, and practical methods that will help you disciple the millennials you love.This audiobook is your guide to understanding the millennials in your life who are seemingly reckless but far from hopeless, for the future of the church that depends on them.Comics and illustrations available in the audiobook companion PDF download.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

It´s been twelve years since the undead hordes swept over the earth forcing mankind to the brink of extinction. We now live like rats, scavenging in the ruins of our fallen civilization as the dead hunt us night and day. There is little left to scavenge, however. Grocery stores were emptied ages ago, gas tanks have long been dry and bullets are so precious that a man is lucky to have two to his name. Still, we survive. But for how much longer? Instinct and love have combined to turn Darwin´s theory on its head. The strongest didn´t survive in this world. They were the first to die, leaving behind a generation of orphans. It´s a generation that´s never had a full belly. It´s a generation that has no idea what an Xbox did, or what algebra is for. It´s a generation of children who never laugh out loud, and who have learned to cry softly because the dead are always near and the dead are always so very, very hungry. 1. Language: English.
