It's 1.15 a.m. Connie Bowskill should be asleep. Instead, she's logging on to a property website in search of a particular house: 11 Bentley Grove, Cambridge. She knows it's for sale; she saw the estate agent's board in the front garden less than six hours ago. Soon Connie is clicking on the 'Virtual Tour' button, keen to see the inside of 11 Bentley Grove and put her mind at rest once and for all. She finds herself looking at a scene from a nightmare: in the living room, in the middle of the carpet, there's a woman lying face down in a huge pool of blood. In shock, Connie wakes her husband, Kit. But when Kit sits down at the computer to take a look, he sees no dead body, only a pristine beige carpet in a perfectly ordinary room…. 1. Language: English.

An interview is a two-way street. They are not only interviewing your for the job, but you are questioning them to see if you are a good fit for the company if you are offered the position. You need to understand if taking the job is worth other opportunity costs. You should be able to ask questions at the end of your interview. You should be prepared with questions ahead of time. You can bring a notebook with the questions written down. Have some extra questions in case all of your questions are answered. Be careful of the questions you select. Some employers may judge you on the questions you ask. Make sure you research the company and position before you go on the interview. A company website and social media is a great place to start. Prioritize the questions you have to about three to five at the end of an interview. You should never ask about salary and benefits issues until those subjects are raised by the employer. Showing you are prepared and have done your research will help you stand out in the candidate pool. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Wright.

I'm cursed. At least when it comes to finding Mr. Right. I'm tired of men that only want one-night stands or blind dates that are nothing but awkward and uncomfortable. I'm tired of avoiding inappropriate text messages and the constant disappointment of always meeting Mr. Wrong. After all these years of dates that lead nowhere, I can admit that it's me. I'm the problem. I'm shy and picky and cursed. Definitely cursed. So I've decided two things. The first? I'm giving up dating and relationships and men in general. Maybe, possibly, forever. The second? I'm going to have to try harder to avoid Ezra Baptiste. If I couldn't hack it in the kiddy pool of dating, I certainly can't swim in his deep end. He's too successful. Too intense. He's all man when I'm used to nothing but boys pretending to be grownups. He's everything I'm afraid to want and so far out of my league we might as well be different species entirely. So he'll need to find a different artist to paint his mural. And a different graphic designer to help him with his website. He'll need to find someone else to glare at and flirt with and kiss. It can't be me. We're too different. Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elizabeth Hart. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/008804/bk_tant_008804_sample.mp3.

To be human is to be in crisis. From our first breath, we trade the warm, loving embrace of the womb for the harsh realities of a situation we can't possibly control. We seek solace from our suffering and look for wisdom outside the confines of dogma, but soon we're drowning in vague spiritual lingo - intention, higher self, attraction, vibration - that's poetry at best and manipulation at worst. We become so stuffed up with ideas of what is spiritual - doing vinyasas, attending seminars, being vegan - that we leave no room for Grace, that uncontrollable, benevolent power that wants to enter the world through and as you. For Grace to unfurl in your life, you need to shake your foundations so the soil loosens, allowing devastating catastrophes to become wondrous opportunities. Spirituality isn't about averting crises; it's about making the cycle from crisis to Grace a little less bumpy. By identifying the patterns in your life, you'll be able to figure out how to relax, find your power, learn from your difficulties, and allow Grace to enter. Mastin Kipp knows a thing or two about the crisis-to-Grace cycle. In a matter of weeks, he went from being a hard-partying, 21-year-old vice president at a Hollywood record company to an unemployed, drug-addicted college dropout living in the tiny pool house of his ex-girlfriend's parents. From rock bottom, he began his spiritual journey, learning from teachers like Tony Robbins, Joseph Campbell, and Caroline Myss, and his message of self-acceptance and service grew into his popular website The Daily Love. He offers no fancy degrees, just his life and his scars, which form a roadmap to help guide you through the uncertainty that lies ahead, marking where the cliffs are slippery, where the sun burns hot - and where Grace blossoms. 1.

Reunited is a portfolio of social networking websites based upon the themes of reunion with research (separate site Genes Reunited ), dating and job-hunting. The first and eponymous website was created by a husband and wife team in the classic back bedroom internet start-up, it was the first online social network to achieve prominence in Britain, and it weathered the dotcom bust. Each site works on the principle of user-generated content through which registered users are able to post information about themselves which may be searched through by other users. A double-blind email system allows contact between users. Formerly, the site cost Pds. 7.50 per year to use but is now free. The main Friends Reunited site aims to reunite people who have in common a school, university, address, workplace, sports club or armed service, the sister site Genes Reunited enables members to pool their family trees and identify common ancestors, the Dating and Jobs sister sites link members with similar attributes, interests and/or locations.
News publishers experimenting with pay walls and subscription business models are essentially seeking to set up their own online communities of audience members. Online communities are also growing up around collectives of citizen journalists. Both of these phenomena make research into such communities potentially valuable. Online communities are being used to complement or replace face-to-face interactions, especially between widely distributed individuals. This study explores the theoretical and practical factors that contribute to the sustainability of such communities. The findings suggest that online communities are likely to lack theoretical foundations. Additionally, analysis suggests a difference in the expectations members and organisations have about building identity in online communities. Although members perceive the community as a pool of goodwill, organisations see it as a website or a system.
