This is the flagship course from Dr. Bogard's Time to Learn German school, offered here at Udemy at a special price. This is a professional, effective, full semester video course that makes it possible for you to have a conversation in German much faster than in any traditional classroom. You won't get a podcast course with the professor lecturing, while you stare at a static image that's been turned into a video. You won't be falling asleep either, because you will be engaged in challenging work, that moves along at the pace you choose. You will watch Dr. Bogard, and complete your lessons, as she walks you step by step through the process of acquiring German. The entire course should take you about 12-16 weeks to complete.
The Benedictine abbey of Monte Cassino in Italy was one of the most important monuments in the whole of Christianity. During the Second World War, the Allied forces controversially decided to bomb the abbey as they thought the Germans were using it for military purposes. This documentary reconstructs the political and military background behind the stalemate of the Anglo-American military campaign in Italy in 1944, the dramatic leadership errors and the mutual lack of trust between the Allied partners.

Arguably the turning point in the career of Jefferson Airplane was the weekend of October 14-16, 1966, when the band played the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco on a triple bill, preceded by the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and followed by headliner Big Mama Mae Thornton, two shows a night. This was the engagement during which the Airplane's original female singer, Signe Anderson, gave way to Grace Slick. Anderson performed on the first two nights (the late show of the second providing the archival album Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 10/15/66: Late Show – Signe's Farewell, released simultaneously with this album in 2010), and Slick took over on Sunday night; the 27-and-a-half-minute early show and the 43-minute late show are presented here.
Sade's studio recordings are so pristine that plans for a concert album at first sounded more like a way to dig deeper into the gold mine. But rather than simply rehashing a tall stack of romantic pop-R&B hits, Lovers Live documents a surprisingly vibrant live group and its warm namesake (but hardly spotlight-hogging) singer. Taken from two California dates on 2001's Lovers Rock tour, the disc reflects an obvious enthusiasm for returning to the stage after a seven-year break. "The Sweetest Taboo" especially benefits from an infusion of energy, performed at a noticeably faster pace than the already assured original version. That's not the only surprise, as the dubwise "Slave Song" acquires another dimension in this setting. In the end, Live proves much more than a cash-in on an outfit that might drop into another long hiatus at any moment. ~ Rickey Wright
