Banker To The Poor: Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty-repost

Muhammad Yunus, "Banker To The Poor: Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty"

P..rs (10-2003) | EPUB+MOBI | 312 pages | ISBN: 1586481983 | 1.6MB
Muhammad Yunus is that rare thing: a bona fide visionary. His dream is the total eradication of poverty from the world. In 1983, against the advice of banking and government officials, Yunus established Grameen, a bank devoted to providing the poorest of Bangladesh with minuscule loans.
Grameen Bank, based on the belief that credit is a basic human right, not the privilege of a fortunate few, now provides over 2.5 billion dollars of micro-loans to more than two million families in rural Bangladesh. Ninety-four percent of Yunus's clients are women, and repayment rates are near 100 percent. Around the world, micro-lending programs inspired by Grameen are blossoming, with more than three hundred programs established in the United States alone.
Banker to the Poor is Muhammad Yunus's memoir of how he decided to change his life in order to help the world's poor. In it he traces the intellectual and spiritual journey that led him to fundamentally rethink the economic relationship between rich and poor, and the challenges he and his colleagues faced in founding Grameen. He also provides wise, hopeful guidance for anyone who would like to join him in "putting homelessness and destitution in a museum so that one day our children will visit it and ask how we could have allowed such a terrible thing to go on for so long." The definitive history of micro-credit direct from the man that conceived of it, Banker to the Poor is necessary and inspirational reading for anyone interested in economics, public policy, philanthropy, social history, and business.
Muhammad Yunus was born in Bangladesh and earned his Ph.D. in economics in the United States at Vanderbilt University, where he was deeply influenced by the civil rights movement. He still lives in Bangladesh, and travels widely around the world on behalf of Grameen Bank and the concept of micro-credit.

Into the Bermuda Triangle: Pursuing the Truth Behind the World's Greatest Mystery

Into the Bermuda Triangle: Pursuing the Truth Behind the World's Greatest Mystery By Gian Quasar

Publisher: Inte[rnatio]nal M[ari]ne 2005 | 320 Pages | ISBN: 0071452176 | PDF | 4 MB

Still unsolved, still baffling, still claiming new victims. Here are the untold stories.
A pilot reports a strange haze enveloping his plane, then disappears; eleven hours after fuel starvation, as if calling from a void, he is heard 600 miles away. He requests permission to land, then vanishes forever. A freighter steaming over placid seas disappears without a trace. A pleasure yacht ghosts past without a soul on board. A pilot calls for help because a "weird object" is harassing his plane. A jet collides with an "unknown" and is never found. . . .
Into the Bermuda Triangle is the first comprehensive examination of these baffling disappearances in more than a generation. Drawing on official reports from the NTSB and other investigative agencies as well as interviews with scientists, theorists, and survivors, leading authority Gian Quasar not only sets the record straight on previously examined cases, he also offers a bulging file of new cases, the collective results of his twelve-year investigation. In meticulous detail this unflinching account:
Gathers new testimony and reexamines old interviews from eyewitnesses and survivors
Challenges our assumptions with the sheer weight of accumulated evidence
In this age of technological and scientific discovery, there are still mysteries that transcend understanding. The Bermuda Triangle is one.

Tokio Hotel Fever

Tokio Hotel Fever By Beatrice Nouveau

Publisher: E..C//W Press 2010 | 112 Pages | ISBN: 1550229281 | PDF | 19 MB

Tokio Hotel—twin brothers, vocalist Bill and guitarist Tom Kaulitz; drummer Gustav Sch?fer; and bassist Georg Listing—were already multiplatinum-selling superstars in their native Germany when they decided to take the rest of the world by storm, and this tribute is the ultimate guide to the band. Featuring stunning photos of the band—in performance, off stage, and as children—this biography details their early days, their musical and style influences, and their love for their devoted legions of fans. Tokio Hotel translated their two albums from German to English and found North Americans just as receptive to their alt-rock music, moving lyrics, and distinct visual style. This led to a nomination for the MTV Video Music Award for best pop video and a win for best new artist in 2008. From facts and style information on each of the band members to a discography and videography of their work, this guide to all things Tokio Hotel is essential for any die-hard fan and a great introduction for those new to their music.
