´To read this book is to understand Afghanistan as it exists today. This haunting memoir traces the unimaginable odyssey of one family whose world has collapsed . . . Poetic, powerful, and unforgettable.´ Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner . Qais Akbar Omar was eleven when a brutal civil war engulfed Kabul. For Qais, it brought an abrupt end to a childhood filled with kites and cousins in his grandfather´s garden: one of the most convulsive decades in Afghan history had begun. Ahead lay the rise of the Taliban, and, in 2001, the arrival of international forces. A Fort of Nine Towers is the story of Qais, his family and their determination to survive these upheavals as they were buffeted from one part of Afghanistan to the next. Drawing strength from each other, and their culture and faith, they sought refuge for a time in the Buddha caves of Bamyan, and later with a caravan of Kuchi nomads. When they eventually returned to Kabul, it became clear that their trials were just beginning.

Nine-eleven was the world´s worst terrorist atrocity. Julian Fox intends to change that fact. The planning will take months. The attack will take just two minutes. Nine-eleven involved four airliners, three buildings, and 3,000 deaths. What Fox is planning will down 1,300 airliners, devastate countless city centers, and kill around half a million people. His method won´t require a single hijacker, just 23 lines of computer code. Sarah Green is an aviation risk analyst in the Department of Homeland Security. Her job is to out-think the terrorists: identify weaknesses in airline security arrangements, figure out how those weaknesses might be exploited, and get protections in place before the terrorists get their chance. Neither knows the other exists, yet the two are locked in a race that only one of them can win. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Abell.

Same date; six different years, the Time Patrol must save our timeline from the Shadow by preserving our past. Nine-Eleven is a day that reverberates in our collective conscious. But is a date of significance throughout history. On 9/11, nine A.D., three Roman legions were annihilated by an alliance of Germanic tribes; the Romans would never again attempt to expand east of the Rhine River. On 9/11, 1973, a military coup in Chile, engineered by the United States, toppled the elected President and eventually brought Pinochet to power. On 9/11, 1857, over 100 emigrants were slaughtered in the Mountain Meadows Massacre in Utah. On 9/11, 2001, over 3,000 Americans were killed in the word terrorist attack in our history. All of these events, and others on the same day, are being manipulated by the Shadow in an attempt to change our history. It is up to the Time Patrol to send an agent back to six different years on 9/11 and make sure our timeline remains intact. If they fail, our present will snap out of existence! ungekürzt.

Unterrichtsentwurf aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Englisch - Pädagogik, Didaktik, Sprachwissenschaft, Note: 1,3, Universität Koblenz-Landau, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die englischen Zahlwörter für die Kardinalzahlen 1-12 (one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve) sind in Laut und Schrift denjenigen des Deutschen ähnlich. Unterschiede in den Formen erklären sich vor allem durch die Zweite (Hochdeutsche) Lautverschiebung. Wie im Deutschen werden die Grundzahlen attributiv oder allein stehend gebraucht (Ive got one book/Ive got one).
LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN´S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2014 ´SUPERB´ - SIMON SEBAG MONTEFIORE, LONDON EVENING STANDARD BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2013 ´EXTRAORDINARY´ - KEVIN POWERS, AUTHOR OF THE YELLOW BIRDS ´THINK HOMELAND IN FICTION FORM...´ - RED ´AN EXTRAORDINARILY GIFTED WRITER´ - MICHIKO KAKUTANI, NEW YORK TIMES Eleven Days is, at its heart, the story of a mother and a son. It begins in May 2011: Sara´s son Jason has been missing for nine days in the aftermath of a special operations forces mission. Out of devotion to him, Sara has made herself knowledgeable about things military, but she knows nothing more about her son´s disappearance than the press corps camped out in her driveway. In a series of flashbacks we learn about Jason´s absentee father - a man who died, according to ´´insiders,´´ helping to make the country safer - and Jason´s decision to join the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis after 9/11 and enter into the toughest military training in the world: for the U.S. Naval Special Warfare´s Navy SEAL Teams. Through letters Jason wrote his mother while training, we see him becoming a strong, compassionate leader. But his fate will be determined by events that fall outside the sphere of his training, and far outside the strong embrace of his mother´s love. As well as a touching picture of the bond between a mother and a son this is a unique look into the training, history and culture of one of the world´s elite forces. Page-turning and haunting, this is an astonishing debut which questions the very nature of sacrifice and love.
