Euro Truck Simulator 2 is a second edition of this popular truck game developed by SCS Software from the Czech Republic. It is the most popular truck driving simulator on the market which gives you the chance to become a real truck driver.Truck Driver’s Life & DutiesHave you ever dreamed of being a truck driver? Dreams come true, and now you can experience the truck driver’s life. Everyone knows that factories produce, and supermarkets sell the products that we buy every day. However, a big number of truck drivers are hard-working people who provide us those products. But for their work, we would not get all those imported food, cosmetics and clothes. Now, you can be one of them and get to know their duties.Truck Driver’s GoalsAt the beginning, the player gets his first order and begins to drive a truck. Beginnings are hard, but the farther, the better. Every player has a six-steps goal to be the best driver: after you will start, you will make your first delivery, first trip abroad, first ADR certification, first valuable and time pressured cargo, and finally – buy your first own car. You can choose one of 13 licensed trucks from 7 manufacturers: MAN, Scania, DAF, Iveco, Renault Trucks, Volvo and Mercedes-Benz. Every truck can be customized according to your preferences – you can select the appearance of cabin, interior, chassis, engine, sideskirts, mirrors, tires, rims or even door handles and door steps. After buying your first car, you can also run a business and plan your company’s activity from the comfort of your home. As you can see, ETS 2 is not only a game about driving, but you can also grow your own shipping company and feel like a real businessman.Travel The WorldYou can visit 60 cities located in Belgium, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, the UK, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. If you dreamed of traveling and always wanted to visit those countries, you can do that with Euro Truck Simulator 2 (PC) which was intended both for professionals and amateurs. The American counterpart of this game (American Truck Simulator by SCS Software) became an inspiration for one of the players who found being a truck driver his dream job, learned a lot from the game and then took an exam and got a truck driver’s license. Euro Truck Simulator 2 can be also an inspiration for amateurs and enjoyable entertainment for professionally active and retired truck drivers.

Before and since its official closure in 1985, historic US 66 became associated with the deserts, Indians, and cowboys of the Southwest; the "Okies" of the Great Depression; and the millions of vacationers who took to the highway in their streamlined automobiles and found adventure on the open road from the late 1940s to the 1970s. Route 66 has such name recognition that in the past 20 years it has been used to advertise products ranging from blue jeans, to root beer, to automobiles. The highway enjoyed only about 30 years of dominance as a primary auto and truck route from 1926 to around 1956. Gradually replaced by interstates into the 1980s, Route 66 became forever fixed in the history and lore of the Southwest and the United States. Route 66 provides a unique vantage point from which to better understand American popular culture from the 1920s to the present. The purpose of this audiobook is not to simply recount the history of Route 66, but to create a comprehensive portrait of the cultural meaning of the highway. What was Route 66 at its pinnacle, what is it today, and what might it become in the future? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Rene Zuzel.

Frank D’Angelo is an intrepid entrepreneur, singer, restaurateur, and the James Bond of the Canadian beverage world. At least one of his products can be found in almost every convenience store in Canada under the brands D’Angelo or Arizona, and he has raised thousands of dollars for charities through his music. Born to Sicilian parents in Toronto, Frank nurtured his keen business sense as a boy by buying and consolidating paper routes, and then contracting them out. He flipped his first house at age 20. Six years later, he mortgaged his house to buy $150,000 worth of apple juice, which he used to start a multi-million dollar business empire from his truck. Frank appears in lots of his TV commercials, in various incarnations, and his inimitable “Eye-talian” style is arguably as famous as his drinks. You need only mention the catchphrase, “I Cheetah all the time,” and the infamous Ben Johnson Cheetah energy drink commercial springs to mind. Frank D’Angelo doesn’t just push the envelope—he pushes the entire post office; and in so doing, revolutionizes the very idea of merchandising. With a raw wit and seasoned debonair, Frank now hosts his own Friday night variety talk show, the Being Frank Show, with A-list guests and an assortment of comedy skits and live music. Despite his huge successes and achievements, Frank D’Angelo is probably best known for just...Being Frank! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frank D'Angelo.

Ladies' Night is a non-stop rollercoaster ride of sheer nerve rattling terror, previously deemed too violent for mass-market publication. In this modern tale of the ages-old battle of the sexes carried to the extreme, Jack Ketchum again provides listeners with an excursion into horror as relentless as a John Woo film. Tom Braun and his wife, Susan, aren't exactly a picturesque couple. Thus it comes as no surprise that Tom continually spends late evenings in bars and cheats on his wife. Unfortunately, their son, Andy, is caught in the middle of his parent's childish banter and family chaos. One life-altering evening turns this family's, along with most of New York's, perceptions on the nuclear family and male/female relationships upside down. When a tanker trunk with "Ladies Inc." emblazoned on the side crashes in a quiet area in New York, an area it doesn't have authorization to be in, it liberally spills its contents all over the road and into the surrounding atmosphere. The local authorities deem the contents of the spill to be safe, based merely on the assumption that products coming from a women's label are more than likely benign. Moreover, the smell emanating from the spill is one of sweet cherry, similar to lollipops, which must of course be harmless if not favorable. This aforementioned assumption proves fatally incorrect. The chemical load the truck was hauling procures a discomfiting, bestial effect in women, forcing them to savagely attack males in their vicinity - be they former friend or foe. Tom, while at a local bar, absorbs the evening's strange turn of events with traumatizing clarity as he witnesses first hand the metamorphosis of surrounding women into gruesomely instinctual brutes and mantis-like predators. He must get home to his son Andy, who is currently alone with his wife, Susan - before it is too late. (A multicast production.) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anthony Mendez.

In April 1956, a refitted oil tanker carried 58 shipping containers from Newark to Houston. From that modest beginning, container shipping developed into a huge industry that made the boom in global trade possible. The Box tells the dramatic story of the container's creation, the decade of struggle before it was widely adopted, and the sweeping economic consequences of the sharp fall in transportation costs that containerization brought about. Published on the 50th anniversary of the first container voyage, this is the first comprehensive history of the shipping container. It recounts how the drive and imagination of an iconoclastic entrepreneur, Malcom McLean, turned containerization from an impractical idea into a massive industry that slashed the cost of transporting goods around the world and made the boom in global trade possible. But the container didn't just happen. Its adoption required huge sums of money, both from private investors and from ports that aspired to be on the leading edge of a new technology. It required years of high-stakes bargaining with two of the titans of organized labor, Harry Bridges and Teddy Gleason, as well as delicate negotiations on standards that made it possible for almost any container to travel on any truck or train or ship. Ultimately, it took McLean's success in supplying U.S. forces in Vietnam to persuade the world of the container's potential. Drawing on previously neglected sources, economist Marc Levinson shows how the container transformed economic geography, devastating traditional ports such as New York and London and fueling the growth of previously obscure ones, such as Oakland. By making shipping so cheap that industry could locate factories far from its customers, the container paved the way for Asia to become the world's workshop and brought consumers a previously unimaginable variety of low-cost products from around the globe. 1.

The Global Economy International Trade, Global Competition and its Driving Forces In the early 1990s a process of economic integration did start that changed the face of a large number of cities and manufacturing sites around the globe: In western industrialized countries vital economic activities that had existed for 100 years and more disappeared within shortly and the growing group of the newly industrialized countries lived a stunning manufacturing boom. International trade did not only gain a new dimension but it got a different objective, too: The constantly growing exchange of goods and services between countries and continents turned irrevocably into a worldwide division of labour called globalization. Since the early 1990s international trade is no longer an advantageous exchange of goods and services but it has become inevitable for every country to participate successfully to assure its vital supplies. In the early days the driving forces of trade between locations were the different endowment with natural resources and the differences in the skills of local manufacturers. Transportation was difficult and rather expensive, therefore only essential natural resources and small amounts of high value goods were traded internationally. Since the 1980s this is no longer true: Transportation costs are no more an obstacle to any form of trading, since the technical progress in international logistics reduced them to a few percentage points of every ex works price. Competitively manufactured goods can match with rival products after a shipment of several thousand miles from East Asia to Europe or to America. Therefore gigantic quantities of commodities and branded goods are traded around the globe. The consequences for companies and countries are substantial: Entire industries have been relocated internationally. In the early 1990s the global economy was deeply restructured by several mega-events that took place almost at the same time: After its return to the market economy China entered a period of high economic growth fuelled by its booming commodity exports. Close to insolvency India received a $ 10 b. loan from the IMF. In return it had to open its almost closed economy to the world trade. That produced a take-off for its services´ exports and its economy as a whole. In 1991 the Soviet Union ended and the Eastern European countries returned to democracy and market economy. This gave the Western European manufacturing industry access to low cost locations at half a day´s truck drive. The great autonomous cycle of innovation and investment of the microelectronics favoured the low income locations in East Asia. This helped South Korea and Taiwan to join the club of industrialized countries. The international competition between companies has turned into a competition between countries and their manufacturing sites. Most of the governments of the western industrialized countries do believe in David Ricardo´s Credo of Free Trade. They intervene little in the development of their manufacturing industries and focus on good governance, on improving their infrastructure and educational system, and on deregulating their markets. Japan, Taiwan, Korea, and China did opt for Neo-Mercantilism and support their manufacturing industries with state subsidies. It is their objective to win international market share to bring income and jobs to their countries. They have been successful and still are. They are the winners of the globalization, but they are not the only ones: The key manufacturing industries of the USA, the German speaking and the Scandinavian countries stayed competitive through innovation and high productivity and made
