No period in American history was as untamed, dangerous, and exciting as what we refer to as ´´The Wild West´´. And no man wrote gunslingers, lawmen, and ordinary folks made extraordinary in lawless cowtowns and harsh landscapes like Charles Boeckman. And now, those heroes crafted first by Boeckman in classic Western pulp magazines live again in new tales from Pro Se Productions, Charles Boeckman Presents: The Wild West! Authors Phillip Drayer Duncan and Terry Alexander load their six guns with new stories featuring Boeckman´s distinct characters of the West. Ride along with men who make life and death choices on the turn of a hat and card, the slip of the tongue, or the wrong look. The western is a cornerstone of American fiction, and Charles Boeckman´s legacy as one of its best storytellers lives on in Charles Boeckman Presents: The Wild West from Pro Se Productions. 1.

On May 7, 1915, the Lusitania neared the coast of Ireland. At 2:10 in the afternoon, a torpedo fired by the German submarine U 20 slammed into her side. A mysterious second explosion ripped the liner apart. Chaos reigned. The ship listed so badly and quickly that lifeboats crashed into passengers crowded on deck or dumped their loads into the water. Most passengers never had a chance. Within 18 minutes, the giant ship slipped beneath the sea. One thousand, one hundred nineteen of the 1,924 aboard died. The dead included 114 Americans. Charles E. Lauriat, Jr., was an American who survived the sinking of the great ship. This is his eyewitness account of that disaster that helped bring America into WWI, narrated by award-winning audiobook narrator Mike Vendetti. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Vendetti.

The cost of a college degree has increased by 1,125% since 1978 - four times the rate of inflation. Total student debt is $1.3 trillion. Many private universities charge tuitions ranging from $60-70,000 per year. Nearly 2/3 of all college students must borrow to study, and the average student graduates with more than $30,000 in debt. 53% of college graduates under 25 years old are unemployed or underemployed (working part-time or in low-paying jobs that do not require college degrees). Professors - remember them? They rarely teach undergraduates at many major universities. Seventy-six percent of all university classes are taught by part-time, untenured faculty. In Fail U., Charles J. Sykes asks, ´´Is it worth it?´´ With chapters exploring the staggering costs of a college education, the sharp decline in tenured faculty and teaching loads, the explosion of administrator jobs, the grandiose building plans (gyms, food courts, student recreation centers), and the hysteria surrounding the ´´epidemic´´ of campus rapes, ´´triggers´´, ´´micro-aggressions´´, and other forms of alleged trauma, Fail U. concludes by offering a different vision of higher education - one that is affordable, more productive, and better-suited to meet the needs of a diverse range of students. Provocative, persuasive, clear-eyed, and even amusing, Fail U. strips the academic emperor of its clothes to reveal the American university system as it really is - and how it must change. 1.
