In 2003, for the first time since the Second World War, the United Kingdom took part in an opposed invasion and full-scale occupation of a sovereign state - Iraq. Cabinet decided on 17th March to join the US-led invasion of Iraq, assuming there was no last-minute capitulation by Saddam Hussein. That decision was ratified by Parliament the next day and implemented the night after that. In June 2009, Prime Minister Gordon Brown ordered an Inquiry to be conducted to identify lessons that could be learned from the Iraq conflict. The inquiry was to not only look at the conflict and post-conflict phases, but additionally it was to inquire into the decision to carry out the invasion and the intelligence that led to that decision. This audiobook is an unabridged reading of that report's executive summary. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot.

In the 18th century, Italy was still divided into smaller states, but differently than during medieval times when the political entities were independent and were flourishing economic and cultural centers almost unrivaled in Europe. During the 18th century, all of them were submitted, in one way or another, to one of the greater hegemonic powers. This process of conquest and submission began during the early 16th century, when France was called on by the Duke Milan to intervene in his favor and from there never stopped.Starting from the northwest, the kingdom of Sardinia was controlling the Alpine western area and the island from which it took its name and ruled by the Savoy family. The kingdom of Sardinia was the youngest political entity in Italy and, possibly because of that, the strongest and most independent. Milan was found dominating part of the central plane, Venice was in control of the east, and Genova was dominating the coastal area south of the kingdom of Sardinia. Central Italy was ruled by the Duchy of Tuscany and the Papal States, while the south was united under the kingdom of Sicily.In 1847, the Austrian Chancellor Klement von Metternich referred to Italy as merely a “geographical expression,” and to some extent, he was not far off the mark. The inhabitants did not speak Italian; only a literate few wrote in the Italian of Dante and of Machiavelli, and a mere estimated two and a half percent spoke the language. The rest spoke their own regional dialects, which were so distinct from one another as to be incomprehensible from town to town. Similarly, most future Italian citizens knew nothing of the history of the peninsula, but instead learned of their own local traditions and histories.The events of 1848-1849 began to pull the peninsula together, however. In January 1848, Sicily had a major revolution, which provoked widespread uprisings and riots, after which the kingdoms of Sardinia, the Two Sicilies, the Papal States and th 1. Language: English.

This is a book about practicing, learning, and sharing our experiences with the Lean methodology and the Toyota Production System. Doctors don't "implement medicine," they practice medicine. Lawyers don't "implement cases," they practice law. Shouldn't Lean facilitators, consultants, managers, and the like, also "practice Lean?" When most of us start with Lean, the practices and principles are new. We might struggle to make change happen. I know I did. Our initial clumsy efforts hopefully turn into proficiency and mastery over time. We shift from "doing Lean" to "being Lean" and teaching others how to be Lean. This book is a collection of honest and unvarnished first-hand stories about learning, failing, and getting better at leading Lean transformation efforts. What mistakes have been made? What are the lessons learned? How do we "plan, do, study, adjust" our way to more effective Lean transformation models? We ended up with a diverse set of 16 contributors - manufacturing, healthcare, software, startups, etc. - from across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom... a doctor, engineers, business owners, and other great leaders and change agents (although they'd be too humble to call themselves great). All proceeds from the book will be donated to the nonprofit Louise H. Batz Patient Safety Foundation. Disclosure: Mark Graban is on the board of the Batz Foundation. We have a diverse set of contributors from settings like manufacturing, healthcare, software, startups, etc. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Samantha Leigh, Mark Graban, Paul Akers.

Mistress Harley will choose the next American president and she would like to make a modest proposal: let's eat the poor. Mistress Harley is many things to many people, but above all she is rich. Wealthy rich, not rap video rich. I live and San Francisco and am from Hawaii, I have only expensive tastes. Recently I learned there are people who have little to no money. Money is the only thing that matters. The only thing I want is money that isn't mine and that is your money. After finding no reasonable way to make these people wealthy, I guess it's time we eat them. Some sort of cattle feed or industrial fish food, I suppose. After some research I learned that someone else already had this idea back in the United Kingdom. I've included that text as well, but mine is better. Trump is coming and if you think this is a world of s - t he's stirred up in the Republican party, then you haven't seen anything yet. The rich are mad and we aren't going to take it anymore. You don't have to be the Wu Tang Clan to understand that cash rules everything. Normally, I am apolitical, but with the election on the horizon and endless legions of followers to hear my voice I must lend my opinion. Eat the poor. Let's stop being p - -ies and go to war with the poor. We have already won and now let's finish the job. Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Democrat, Republican, Ben Carson - all of them cannot be saved from my wrath! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Audrey Lusk.

Winston Churchill was born to wealth and nobility in the United Kingdom, blessed with advantages most could only dream of. But despite his high birth, he overcame personal obstacles on the way to being one of the most famous and successful self-made men in history. And the lessons he took to heart most profoundly were learned in the schoolroom of the British Army. In his role as a soldier, a leader of men in battle, even as a writer, he was impressive yet relatable. A patriotic civil servant of the British Empire, he dedicated his life towards the glory of his country, and towards the world's democracy. A seat in Parliament proved the spot best suited to his ambition. While his vision allowed him to see ahead to trending events most could not understand. Over the years he was never finished learning, as much from his defeats and humiliations as from his bravery and foresighted triumphs. He was the embodiment of "We shall never surrender", when his nation was marked for an inevitable defeat. Sir Winston Churchill was a real proof that one person can change the course of their life, even world history, through will and determination. In his own words..."Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sangita Chauhan.
