Air travel is one of the safest modes of travel when we take into account the distances and freedom that it allows us. And yet, we still remain obsessed with aviation disasters. What caused these accidents? Whose fault was it? In her series of books Why Planes Crash, Sylvia Wrigley investigates the worst aviation disasters of the 21st century.Accidents are invariably a combination of factors, and pilot decisions and (in)actions can be the results of a culmination of those factors. A strong investigation will consider not only the cause but the contributing factors: those actions or inactions that could have saved the day but didn’t. The objective in accident investigations around the world is not to cast blame but to understand every aspect so that we can stop it from happening again.The second book in the Why Planes Crash series covers incidents and accidents in 2002, including two in-flight suicides, the Sknyliv airshow disaster, how to write off a Saab 2000, an aircraft collision over the runway, a dramatic river landing, Air China 129´s flight into a Korean mountain, and finally an in-depth view of the Überlingen midair collision.Unravelling the mystery is the most important step. 1.

You might be thinking everything’s okay: The stock market is on the rise, jobs are growing, the worst of it is over. You’d be wrong. In The Real Crash, New York Times best-selling author Peter D. Schiff argues that America is enjoying a government-inflated bubble, one that reality will explode... with disastrous consequences for the economy and for each of us. Schiff demonstrates how the infusion of billions of dollars of stimulus money has only dug a deeper hole: The United States government simply spends too much and does not collect enough money to pay its debts, and in the end, Americans from all walks of life will face a crushing consequence. We’re in hock to China, we can’t afford the homes we own, and the entire premise of our currency - backed by the full faith and credit of the United States - is false. Our system is broken, Schiff says, and there are only two paths forward. The one we’re on now leads to a currency and sovereign debt crisis that will utterly destroy our economy and impoverish the vast majority of our citizens. However, if we change course, the road ahead will be a bit rockier at first, but the final destination will be far more appealing. If we want to avoid complete collapse, we must drastically reduce government spending - eliminate entire agencies, end costly foreign military escapades and focus only on national defense - and stop student loan or mortgage interest deductions, as well as drug wars and bank-and-business bailouts. We must also do what no politician or pundit has proposed: America should declare bankruptcy, default on its debts, and reform our system from the ground up. Persuasively argued and provocative, The Real Crash explains how we got into this mess, how we might get out of it, and what happens if we don’t. And, with wisdom born from having predicted the Crash of 2008, Peter Schiff explains how to protect yourself, your family, your money, and your country against wh 1. Language: English.

Theodosia Browning serves tea and solves crimes in Charleston, a city steeped in tradition and treachery in the latest Tea Shop Mystery from New York Times best-selling author Laura Childs. It is Sunday afternoon, and Theodosia and Drayton are catering a formal tea at a hot-air-balloon rally. The view aloft is not only stunning, but they are also surrounded by a dozen other colorful hot-air balloons. But as the sky turns gray and the clouds start to boil up, a strange object zooms out of nowhere. It is a drone, and it appears to be buzzing around the balloons, checking them out. As Theodosia and Drayton watch, the drone, hovering like some angry, mechanized insect, deliberately crashes into the balloon next to them. An enormous, fiery explosion erupts, and everyone watches in horror as the balloon plummets to the earth, killing all three of its passengers. Sirens scream, first responders arrive, and Theodosia is interviewed by the police. During the interview, she learns one of the downed occupants was Don Kingsley, the CEO of a local software company, SyncSoft. Not only do the police suspect Kingsley as the primary target, they learn he possessed a rare Revolutionary War Union Jack flag on which several people were rabidly bidding. Intrigued, Theodosia begins her own investigation. Was it the CEO´s soon-to-be ex-wife, who is restoring an enormous mansion at no expense? The CEO´s personal assistant, who also functioned as curator of his prized collection of Americana? Two rival antiques dealers known for dirty dealing? Or was the killer the fiancée of one of Theodosia´s dear friends, who turns out to be an employee - and whistle-blower - at SyncSoft? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barbara McCulloh.

The US ambassador to China is killed in a suspicious plane crash just days after a news article links Chinese spies to US business interests. The American intelligence community is left scrambling to investigate possible connections between the crash and a series of other high-profile deaths. On the other side of the world, ex-CIA operative Kera Mersal returns to the United States determined to clear her name after being branded a traitor for exposing illegal government surveillance. There, former colleague and fellow fugitive J. D. Jones contacts her with a new assignment: find out who is staging accidents to murder news sources. As the news site continues to publish stories about top-secret CIA programs and Chinese government corruption, Mersal reunites with old allies to uncover the truth and prove her loyalty to her country once and for all. But Mersal´s investigations put her on the trail of a sinister hacker whose own motives may influence a vaster - and more deadly - geopolitical conspiracy than either of the world´s two largest superpowers is prepared to handle. 1.
