Bei dem Lucky Reptile Bright Control Vorschaltgerät ist entsprechend die Lampenzuleitung mit einer Silikonisolierung ausgestattet und die Steckverbindung für hohe Spannungen ausgelegt. Um eine reibungslose und einwandfreie Funktion zu gewährleisten sollte die Kabellänge zwischen Vorschaltgerät und Lampe 2,5 m nicht überschreiten. Je kürzer die Kabellänge desto reibungsloser erfolgt der Betrieb. Da bei der Zündung von Metalldampflampen hohe Spannungen auftreten ist darauf zu achten dass bei Umverkabelung von bestehenden Installationen nur geeignete Fassungen und Kabel verwendet werden. Die helle Innenfarbe bringt die Tiere besser zur Geltung.The Lucky Reptile Furni-Top is already in use, is also relatively easy. Instead of the regular terrarium lid the mesh lid is installed. On top you then add the side pieces of the hood and the original lid goes on top of the hood part. The front panel is attached over magnets and can be easily removed for servicing the lamp and other electrical items inside the hood. It is also possible to install the panel further back in the hood in order to get shelf space e.g. for books, food, etc. on the front side.
The Book of Harlan opens with the courtship of Harlan´s parents and his 1917 birth in Macon, Georgia. After his prominent minister grandfather dies, Harlan and his parents move to Harlem, where he eventually becomes a professional musician. When Harlan and his best friend, trumpeter Lizard Robbins, are invited to perform at a popular cabaret in the Parisian enclave of Montmartre - affectionately referred to as ´´the Harlem of Paris´´ by black American musicians - Harlan jumps at the opportunity, convincing Lizard to join him. But after the City of Light falls under Nazi occupation, Harlan and Lizard are thrown into Buchenwald - the notorious concentration camp in Weimar, Germany - irreparably changing the course of Harlan´s life. Based on exhaustive research and told in McFadden´s mesmeric prose, The Book of Harlan skillfully blends the stories of McFadden´s familial ancestors with those of real and imagined characters. 1.

Living and dying with bravery and honor is at the heart of Hagakure, a series of texts written by an 18th-century samurai, Yamamoto Tsunetomo. It is a window into the samurai mind, illuminating the concept of bushido (the Way of the Warrior), which dictated how samurai were expected to behave, conduct themselves, live, and die. While Hagakure was for many years a secret text known only to the warrior vassals of the Nabeshima clan to which the author belonged, it later came to be recognized as a classic exposition of samurai thought. The original Hagakure consists of over 1,300 short texts that Tsunetomo dictated to a younger samurai over a seven-year period. William Scott Wilson has selected and translated here 300 of the most representative of those texts to create an accessible distillation of this guide for samurai. No other translator has so thoroughly and eruditely rendered this text into English. For this edition, Wilson has added a new introduction that casts Hagakure in a different light than ever before. Tsunetomo refers to bushido as ´´the Way of death´´, a description that has held a morbid fascination for readers over the years. But in Tsunetomo´s time, bushido was a nuanced concept that related heavily to the Zen concept of muga, the ´´death´´ of the ego. Wilson´s revised introduction gives the historical and philosophical background for that more metaphorical reading of Hagakure, and through this lens, the classic takes on a fresh and nuanced appeal. 1.

Two rivals. One enemy. And an ending no one saw coming. When Antonio Forte met Lauren Bradley, he never expected that making the choice between a possible relationship with her or destroying her company in a hostile takeover would be a hard one. Antonio has always put business before pleasure, but, for the first time, he wants both. After proposing a merger of their two companies, Antonio is hoping Lauren accepts his offer so he can show her the world and together they can have it all. In a world dominated by men, Lauren´s leery of anyone willing to show mercy - especially the very handsome, smooth-talking Antonio. Lauren doesn´t trust easily, especially when it comes to someone who is threatening to dismantle her company, but she´d be lying if she said she didn´t find his offer tempting. After finally deciding the path she will choose, a bigger problem emerges - the real enemy is lurking in the shadows and closer than she ever expects. Merger is the follow-up to Acquisition in the Takeover Duet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Pallino, Natasha Soudek.
