The South Pole; an account of the Norwegian Antarctic expedition in the Fram, 1910-12 (FULL Audio Book) by Roald Amundsen (1872 -- 1928), translated by A. G. Chater (???? -- ????) In contrast to Scott's South Pole expedition, Amundsen's expedition benefited from good equipment, appropriate clothing, and a fundamentally different primary task (Amundsen did no surveying on his route south and is known to have taken only two photographs) Amundsen had a better understanding of dogs and their handling, and he used of skis more effectively. He pioneered an entirely new route to the Pole and they returned. In Amundsen's own words: "Victory awaits him who has everything in order — luck, people call it. Defeat is certain for him who has neglected to take the necessary precautions in time; this is called bad luck." Short accounts by other members of the party are appended. (Summary adapted from Wikipedia by Karen Merline.)

Roald Engelbregt Gravning Amundsen (Norwegian: [ˈɾuːɑl ˈɑmʉnsən]; 16 July 1872 – c. 18 June 1928) was a Norwegian explorer of polar regions. He led the Antarctic expedition (1910–12) to become the first men to reach the South Pole in December 1911. In 1926, he was the first expedition leader to be recognized without dispute as having reached the North Pole. He is also known as the first to traverse the Northwest Passage (1903–06). He disappeared in June 1928 while taking part in a rescue mission. Amundsen, Douglas Mawson, Robert Falcon Scott, and Ernest Shackleton were key expedition leaders during the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. This video is targeted to blind users.

T/I: 10:41:30 Twenty women are heading for the North Pole and the record books as the first all female expedition to reach the top of the world. The Penguin relay expedition is made up of five teams, with four women in each. The housewives, surgeons, teachers and policewomen are making the historic trip from Resolute Bay on the northern tip of Canada to the geographic North Pole. Each team walks for two weeks on the sea ice before handing on the baton to the next team who are airlifted in to continue the 400 nautical mile journey. Accompanied by two professional women polar guides, the teams are made up of women from all walks of life. The idea behind the relay team came from organiser Caroline Hamilton who wanted to give women the opportunity to take part in the expedition without having it cost a lot of money or time away from work and families. Already three teams have made their way across the sea ice which is currently melting in the Spring thaw. Delta, the name of the third team set off after taking the baton from the Charlie team which had run out of food when the weather closed in preventing the plane from landing. While Delta headed off into the white horizon, Charlie arrived back at base camp at Resolute in Canada. There champagne was cracked open and of course drunk by the triumphant women. Among the Charlie party was mother and daughter Sue and Victoria Riches.

Its distinctive tartan pattern has become one of its most widely copied trademarks. The company has branded stores and franchises around the world, and also sells through concessions in third-party stores. It runs a catalogue business and has a fragrance line. HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Prince of Wales have granted the company Royal Warrants. Burberry's trademark products are its fashionable handbags and exclusive fragrances. The Creative Director is Christopher Bailey. The company is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. Early years, 19th century Burberry was founded in 1856 when 21-year-old Thomas Burberry, a former draper's apprentice, opened his own store in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England. By 1870, the business had established itself by focusing on the development of outdoors attire. In 1880, Burberry invented gabardine, a hardwearing, water-resistant yet breathable fabric, in which the yarn is waterproofed before weaving. The Gabardine was patented in 1888. Burberry was the original name, but then the company soon switched to using the name Burberrys, after many customers from around the world began calling it Burberrys of London. This name is still visible on many older Burberry products. 1908 Burberry's advertisement. In 1891, Burberry opened a shop in the Haymarket, London, which still exists and is the site of Burberrys corporate headquarters. 20th century In 1901, the Burberry Equestrian Knight Logo was developed containing the Latin word "Prorsum", meaning forwards, and registered as a trademark. In 1911 they became the outfitters for Roald Amundsen, the first man to reach the South Pole, and Ernest Shackleton, who led a 1914 expedition to cross Antarctica. A Burberry gabardine jacket was worn by George Mallory on his ill-fated attempt on Mount Everest in 1924. In 1914 Burberry was commissioned by the War Office to adapt its officer's coat to suit the conditions of contemporary warfare, resulting in the "trench coat". After the war, the trench coat became popular with civilians. The iconic Burberry check was created in the 1920s and used as a lining in its trench coats. Burberry also specially designed aviation garments. A. E. Clouston and Mrs Betsy Kirby Green made the fastest flying time to Cape Town from London in 1937 and were sponsored by Burberry.

In 2006 Rose Marie Bravo, who as Chief Executive had led Burberry to mass market success, retired. She was replaced by current CEO Angela Ahrendts.

All of us in Australia are familiar with the story of the Rabbit-Proof Fence - the remarkable true story of three young Aboriginal girls who crossed the harsh Australian desert on foot to return to their home. The nine-week walk was a complex adventure, but it is also a remider of what can be achieved when we hold onto hope and find the faith to step out into the unknown.

The Physics of Life is a scientific discipline explaining every part of life. It shows how life emerged and why we behave as we do. The Physics of Life is constructed from many branches of science. It unifies biology, chemistry, logic, mathematics, economy, game theory, cybernetics, psychology, linguistics, sociology and more... even theology. In short, The Physics of Life explains how living objects are built and how living objects behave, both are tactics of acquiring resources necessary to fulfill life's purpose: survive and multiply. The process of biological evolution shaped these tactics, so you and your behaviours are the embodiment of this. Additionally, biological evolution is not only a process, which was started due to self-excitation, but also an autodynamic system composed of the objects submitted to it. The Physics of Life defines three principal Laws of Life similar to Newton's principal Laws of Motion. The full script with suitable links is available at http://physicsoflife.pl/presentations/the_physics_of_life-001-introduction-script.html.
