Daymon Runyon was best known for his short stories celebrating the world of Broadway in New York City that grew out of the Prohibition era. To New Yorkers of his generation, a ´´Damon Runyon character´´ evoked a distinctive social type from the Brooklyn or Midtown demi-monde. The adjective ´´Runyonesque´´ refers to this type of character, as well as to the type of situations and dialog that Runyon depicted. He spun humorous and sentimental tales of gamblers, hustlers, actors, and gangsters, few of whom go by ´´square´´ names, preferring instead colorful monikers such as ´´Nathan Detroit´´, ´´Benny Southstreet´´, ´´Big Jule´´, ´´Harry the Horse´´, ´´Good Time Charley´´, ´´Dave the Dude´´, or ´´The Seldom Seen Kid´´. His distinctive vernacular style is known as ´´Runyonese´´: a mixture of formal speech and colorful slang, almost always in present tense, and always devoid of contractions. He is credited with coining the phrase ´´Hooray Henry´´, a term now used in British English to describe an upper-class, loud-mouthed, arrogant twit. Runyon´s fictional world is also known to the general public through the musical Guys and Dolls based on two of his stories, ´´The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown´´ and ´´Blood Pressure´´. The musical additionally borrows characters and story elements from a few other Runyon stories, most notably ´´Pick the Winner´´. The film Little Miss Marker (and its two remakes, Sorrowful Jones and the 1980 Little Miss Marker) grew from his short story of the same name. Fifty-two half-hour episodes. Digitally remastered. 1.

Unter Terrorismus sind Gewaltaktionen wie beispielsweise Entführungen, Attentate und Sprengstoffanschläge gegen eine politische Ordnung zu verstehen. Der Terror dient als Druckmittel, soll Unsicherheit und Schrecken verbreiten und politischen Wandel herbeizuführen. Der Begriff Terrorismus geht bereits auf das 19. Jahrhundert zurück, doch erst die Verkopplung mit den Massenmedien macht diesen zu einer weltweit politisch-militärischen Strategie. Das Dossier umfasst die nationalen und internationalen Folgen des Terrorismus vom Beginn der Anschläge auf die olympischen Spiele 1972 in München, der ersten Attacke auf das World Trade Center 1993, den bisherigen Höhepunkt des Terrorismus im Rahmen des 11.Septembers 2001 in den USA, und die daraus resultierenden Anschläge 2004 in Madrid. Neben Augenzeugenberichten werden Diskussionen über die Sicherheitsdebatte, die Rolle der Bundeswehr im Kampf gegen eine ´´nicht greifbare-unsichtbare´´ Macht sowie die Angst vor Terroranschlägen zur Zeit der Fußball WM in Deutschland thematisiert. 1.

Inner Sanctum was one of old-time radio´s most popular mystery series! Here are 20 half-hour episodes of the original radio broadcasts, digitally remastered. Episodes include: The Bog Oak Necklace The House Where Death Lived The Horla Black Sea Gull Death Across the Board The Dead Walk at Night Dead Man´s Magic Terrible Vengeance Study for Murder Dead Reckoning Death Has Claws The Man from Yesterday The Death Ship Island of Death Death Is a Joker The Tell-Tale Heart Dead Freight, Fog Death for Sale Mystery of the Howling Dog Inner Sanctum Mysteries was a popular old-time radio program that aired from January 7, 1941, to October 5, 1952. It featured stories of mystery, terror, and suspense. The tongue-in-cheek introductions were in sharp contrast to shows like Suspense and The Whistler. A total of 526 episodes are known to have been produced. The early 1940s programs opened with Raymond Edward Johnson introducing himself as ´´Your host, Raymond´´, in a mocking, sardonic voice. A spooky melodramatic organ score punctuated Raymond´s many morbid jokes and playful puns. Raymond´s closing was an elongated ´´Pleasant dreeeammsss?!´´ His tongue-in-cheek style and ghoulish relish of his own tales became the standard for many such horror narrators to follow. Of more than 500 programs broadcast, only about 100 remain in circulation. 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/003096/bk_acx0_003096_sample.mp3.
