The Yacht Club; or, The Young Boat-Builder

The Yacht Club is the second volume of the Yacht Club Series, to which it gives a name; and like its predecessor, is an independent story. The hero has not before appeared, though some of the characters of Little Bobtail take part in the incidents: but each volume may be read understandingly without any knowledge of the contents of the other. In this story, the interest centres in Don John, the Boat-builder, who is certainly a very enterprising young man, though his achievements have been more than paralleled in the domain of actual life. Like the first volume of the series, the incidents of the story transpire on the waters of the beautiful Penobscot Bay, and on its shores. They include several yacht races, which must be more interesting to those who are engaged in the exciting sport of yachting, than to others. But the principal incidents are distinct from the aquatic narrative; and those who are not interested in boats and boating will find that Don John and Nellie Patterdale do not spend all their time on the water.[6] The hero is a young man of high aims and noble purposes: and the writer believes that it is unpardonable to awaken the interest and sympathy of his readers for any other than high-minded and well-meaning characters. But he is not faultless; he makes some grave mistakes, even while he has high aims. The most important lesson in morals to be derived from his experience is that it is unwise and dangerous for young people to conceal their actions from their parents and friends; and that men and women who seek concealment choose darkness because their deeds are evil.

Broad Band: The Untold Story of the Women Who M...
9,95 € *

The history of technology you probably know is one of men and machines, garages and riches, alpha nerds and brogrammers. But the little-known fact is that female visionaries have always been at the vanguard of technology and innovation - they´ve just been erased from the story. Until now. Women are not ancillary to the history of technology; they turn up at the very beginning of every important wave. But they´ve often been hidden in plain sight, their inventions and contributions touching our lives in ways we don´t even realize. VICE reporter and YACHT lead singer Claire L. Evans finally gives these unsung female heroes their due with her insightful social history of the Broad Band, the women who made the Internet what it is today. Learn from Ada Lovelace, the tortured, imaginative daughter of Lord Byron, who wove numbers into the first program for a mechanical computer in 1842. Seek inspiration from Grace Hopper, the tenacious mathematician who democratized computing by leading the charge for machine-independent programming languages after World War II. Meet Elizabeth ´´Jake´´ Feinler, the one-woman Google who kept the earliest version of the Internet online, and Stacy Horn, who ran one of the first-ever social networks on a shoestring out of her New York City apartment in the 1980s. Evans shows us how these women built and colored the technologies we can´t imagine life without. Join the ranks of the pioneers who defied social convention and the longest odds to become database poets, information-wranglers, hypertext dreamers, and glass ceiling-shattering dot com-era entrepreneurs. This inspiring call to action is a revelation: women have embraced technology from the start. It shines a light on the bright minds whom history forgot, and shows us how they will continue to shape our world in ways we can no longer ignore. Welcome to the Broad Band. You´re next. 1.

Ein kleiner Yachthafen: Heiß brennt die Sonne vom Himmel. Sie betritt gerade das Segelboot des Mannes, der ihr Herz im Sturm erobert hat.Der Hauch von Rosen, Bergamotte und Magnolien, der sie umhüllt, verströmt in der glühenden Hitze eine wohltuend frische Brise.

The deadly crusader has just lucked into an ex-dictator’s fortune. All he wants for the moment is to enjoy squandering his riches on women and yachts and women and private jets - and more women. But a horde of chanting cultists almost brainwashes him in Minnesota and he barely escapes a time-bomb explosion in San Diego. After getting word of the strange events, Hawk is on his way to Hong Kong to break open the most sensational case of his career - if he can live long enough to find the she-devil behind the mind twisters. Michael Hawk is an investigative journalist with a knack for getting the scoop. With Indiana Jones’ penchant for a good mystery - and getting into trouble - and James Bond’s magnetic charm, he saves the day and gets the girl in the end. 1. Language: English.

Yet this new collection of stunning photographs of the rich and well-connected ´doing attractive things´ in their favourite playgrounds has a new twist.The main character is pools and everything that goes with them - magnificent, suntanned bodies, well-oiled skin, bikini-clad women, yachts, summer cocktails, sumptuous buffets, spectacular locations and most of all fun. ´´Poolside with Slim Aarons´´ is not so much a Who´s Who of society, aristocracy and celebrity - although C. Z. Guest, Lily Pulitzer, Cheryl Tiegs, Peter Beard and many who have appeared in the previous books are here - as it is about leisure time and how the rich make use of it. This is a more intimate peek into very private lives, to which Slim Aarons was given unprecedented access in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. From the Caribbean to Italy and Mexico to Monaco, ´´Poolside with Slim Aarons´´ whisks the reader away to an exclusive club where taste, style, luxury and grandeur prevail.

19,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Larry Ellison started the high-flying tech company Oracle with $1,200 in 1977 and turned it into a billion-dollar Silicon Valley giant. If Bill Gates is the tech world´s nerd king, Ellison is its Warren Beatty: racing yachts, buying jets, and romancing beautiful women. His rise to fame and fortune is a tale of entrepreneurial brilliance, ruthless tactics, and a constant stream of half-truths and outright fabrications for which the man and his company are notorious. Investigative reporter Mike Wilson, with access to Ellison himself and more than 125 of his friends, enemies, and former Oracle employees, has created an eye-opening, utterly fascinating portrayal of a Silicon Valley success story ... filled with the stuff that dreams and cultural icons are made of.
