FOTUS is a political satire that takes place in a futuristic America in which Alexander Rett, a self-aware talking embryo, defies medical science, runs to become president from within the womb, wins, and during his first few amazing months as leader of the Free World, coins himself the Fetus of the United States (FOTUS).Without even a fully developed brain yet, the fetus embraces the role with an unorthodox sense of humor; he participates in presidential debates, helps pass important national bills, oversees domestic and international affairs, and even runs his own Twitter account where he continually engages in political quarrels - all through a window in his mother's stomach, an intercom to the outside world, and his cell phone.The nuanced story line, although seemingly inconceivable, touches on conflicting views on various issues - civil rights, gun control, abortion - that are topical in the political climate of modern-day America. FOTUS is joined in his bureaucratic ventures by a myriad of animated characters, including his White House personal secretary, chief of staff, press secretary, chief intern, personal bartender, and, of course, his parents.FOTUS is an outlandish yet relevant take on contemporary politics and what it's like to be president with the entire world watching and criticizing your every move, narrated by the inquisitive, ambitious, anything-but-boring mind of an unborn child. 1.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • "Comprehensive, enlightening, and terrifyingly timely."-The New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice) WINNER OF THE GOLDSMITH BOOK PRIZE • SHORTLISTED FOR THE LIONEL GELBER PRIZE • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post • Time • Foreign Affairs • WBUR • Paste Donald Trump's presidency has raised a question that many of us never thought we'd be asking: Is our democracy in danger? Harvard professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt have spent more than twenty years studying the breakdown of democracies in Europe and Latin America, and they believe the answer is yes. Democracy no longer ends with a bang-in a revolution or military coup-but with a whimper: the slow, steady weakening of critical institutions, such as the judiciary and the press, and the gradual erosion of long-standing political norms. The good news is that there are several exit ramps on the road to authoritarianism. The bad news is that, by electing Trump, we have already passed the first one. Drawing on decades of research and a wide range of historical and global examples, from 1930s Europe to contemporary Hungary, Turkey, and Venezuela, to the American South during Jim Crow, Levitsky and Ziblatt show how democracies die-and how ours can be saved. Praise for How Democracies Die "What we desperately need is a sober, dispassionate look at the current state of affairs. Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt, two of the most respected scholars in the field of democracy studies, offer just that."-The Washington Post "Where Levitsky and Ziblatt make their mark is in weaving together political science and historical analysis of both domestic and international democratic crises; in doing so, they expand the conversation beyond Trump and before him, to other countries and to the deep structure of American democracy and politics."-Ezra Klein, Vox "If you only read one book for the rest of the year, read How Democracies Die. . . .This is not a book for just Democrats or Republicans. It is a book for all Americans. It is nonpartisan. It is fact based. It is deeply rooted in history. . . . The best commentary on our politics, no contest."-Michael Morrell, former Acting Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (via Twitter) "A smart and deeply informed book about the ways in which democracy is being undermined in dozens of countries around the world, and in ways that are perfectly legal."-Fareed Zakaria, CNN

100 Things I Meant to Tell You: Rants, Rhymes, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Arthur Smith is a "national treasure", extremely well-loved, with more than 45K Twitter followers. An anthology of Arthur Smith’s uniquely varied written work, this is Arthur's first book for many years. 100 Things I Meant to Tell You brings together 100 stories, poems, and articles gathered over a colourful lifetime making a living on the comedy circuit. In 2005, Arthur turned down a Perrier Award for Lifetime Achievement, saying, “They wanted to tell me I was old and cool; well, I know that already.” Currently the popular host of BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club, he has travelled all over the British Isles and the rest of the world performing and reporting on a range of subjects as diverse as flotsam and jetsam in Holland (in a series for BBC 1’s The One Show) and more recently, goat yoga in Ipswich, but never before has he corralled all these wonderful stories into book form. Some humorous, some anecdotal, some nostalgic, and some extremely poignant, the stories include the time Arthur was arrested for "breach of the peace and possession of a megaphone", the time he hitched a lift from a nun and heard his own voice (imitating Leonard Cohen) playing on her car radio, the fight he had with Billy Connelly, his flight in a Tiger Moth, and - in verse - his hatred of Teletubbies. Covering a huge range of subjects and emotions, tales of hilarious, chaotic antics are juxtaposed with gentle, bittersweet stories about love affairs that ended badly and his mother’s journey into dementia, making this a cornucopia of delight for Arthur Smith fans everywhere. 1.

Planet Funny , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 551min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the brilliantly witty and exuberant New York Times best-selling author Ken Jennings, a history of humor - from fart jokes on clay Sumerian tablets all the way up to the latest Twitter gags and Facebook memes - that tells the story of how comedy came to rule the modern world. For millennia of human history, the future belonged to the strong. To the parent who could kill the most animals with sticks and to the child who could survive the winter or the epidemic. When the Industrial Revolution came, masters of business efficiency prospered instead, and after that we placed our hope in scientific visionaries. Today, in a clear sign of evolution totally sliding off the rails, our most coveted trait is not strength or productivity or even innovation but being funny. Yes, funniness. Consider: presidential candidates now have to prepare funny "zingers" for debates. Newspaper headlines and church marquees, once fairly staid affairs, must now be clever, stuffed with puns and winks. Airline safety tutorials - those terrifying laminated cards about the possibilities of fire, explosion, depressurization, and drowning - have been replaced by joke-filled videos with multimillion-dollar budgets and dance routines. In Planet Funny, Ken Jennings explores this brave new comedic world and what it means - or doesn’t - to be funny in it now. Tracing the evolution of humor from the caveman days to the bawdy middle-class antics of Chaucer to Monty Python’s game-changing silliness to the fast-paced meta-humor of The Simpsons, Jennings explains how we built our humor-saturated modern age, where lots of us get our news from comedy shows and a comic figure can even be elected president of the United States purely on showmanship. Entertaining, astounding, and completely head-scratching, Planet Funny is a full taxonomy of what spawned and defines the modern sense of humor.    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase 1.

Using Google Super Vote to Create The Super States of America is all about how to use the latest Internet Voting technology to save this country and later the world. Google Super-Vote is used currently to choose the viewer's favorite contestants to be the next American Idol. We can use this same Internet Technology to select from a wider range of candidates and a wider range of ideas. I became interested in real democracy in America when I was asked by President Nixon to join his highly immoral and unethical and highly destructive military machine and participate in the horror known as Viet Nam. It was this most perplexing moment in his life that made me realize there had to be a better way to conduct the affairs of what I and many millions of other people all over the world considered to be the greatest country of all time. This book is a product of that life-long quest to make this country honor the promise of Real Democracy. Everyone I knew, millions of Americans, were protesting against this war. Yet, one man, Lyndon Johnson and then his successor Richard Nixon defied the will of the vast majority of American people and decided to have his little war despite public opinion, citing 'The Silent Majority'.According to Nixon, most people supported him by their silence. Until the invention of the Internet, we had no voice, so they could consider us a 'Silent Majority' and much of the evil in this world is perpetrated even today under this banner. With Google Super-Vote and the rest of the Internet's wonderful technology the MAJORITY need not, nor can be silent any longer. Voting on the Internet is an idea whose time has come. Let's allow Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, FaceBook, Twitter, etc. put together the best type of democracy we can have. In History, there are moments like this only once in a lifetime. If the vast majority of the reading public can support this idea, the vast majority of the American people will always be the winners. Google is perh 1. Language: English.
