Georgia and Armenia Travel Reference Map Two of the most interesting countries to emerge from the collapse of the dreaded Soviet Union were Georgia and Armenia. Both are still fragile economies tied closely to modern-day Russia, but are both very proud independent countries. Georgia occupies one side of the map sheet, with a detailed inset map of Tbilisi, the capital. The country shares a long border with Russia and borders on Turkey to the south. Batum (Batu) is the main port, with ferry services across the Black Sea to Trabzon, Istanbul, and Novorossijsk. For visitors, the main attraction must be the country’s many picturesque churches, but fortresses would enjoy second place. We have tried to mark roads by quality as well as importance. The other side of the map sheet concentrates on Armenia and its capital of Yerevan This country is the location of Mount Aragat, an extinct volcano that is the highest point of land in Transcaucasia. Armenia is an ancient Christian country and its monasteries are well-worth visiting. The one in Geghard dates from 1215 and is a World Heritage site. Lake Sevan is the largest body of water in the Caucasus region. The country borders Georgia, Turkey, and Azerbaijan and small parts of those countries show on the map.

The New York Times Bestseller named one of the ´´Most Important Books of 2016´´ by Inc, and a Forbes 2016 ´´Must Read Business Book´´ ´If you love ´Bones´ and ´CSI´, this book is your kind of candy´ Paco Underhill, author of Why We Buy ´Martin´s best book to date. A personal, intuitive, powerful way to look at making an impact with your work´ Seth Godin, author of Purple Cow Martin Lindstrom, one of Time Magazine´s 100 Most Influential People in The World and a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, harnesses the power of ´´small data´´ in his quest to discover the next big thing. In an era where many believe Big Data has rendered human perception and observation ´old-school´ or passé, Martin Lindstrom shows that mining and matching technological data with up-close psychological insight creates the ultimate snapshot of who we really are and what we really want. He works like a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, accumulating small clues - the progressively weaker handshakes of Millenials, a notable global decrease in the use of facial powder, a change in how younger consumers approach eating ice cream cones - to help solve a stunningly diverse array of challenges. In Switzerland, a stuffed teddy bear in a teenage girl´s bedroom helped revolutionise 1,000 stores - spread across twenty countries - for one of Europe´s largest fashion retailers. In Dubai, a distinctive bracelet strung with pearls helped Jenny Craig offset its declining membership in the United States and increase loyalty by 159% in only one year. In China, the look of a car dashboard led to the design of the iRobot, or Roomba, floor cleaner - a great success story. SMALL DATA combines armchair travel with forensic psychology in an interlocking series of international clue-gathering detective stories. It shows Lindstrom using his proprietary CLUES Framework - where big data is merely one part of the overall puzzle - to get radically close to consumers and come up with the counter-intuitive insights that have in some cases helped transform entire industries. SMALL DATA presents a rare behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to create global brands, and reveals surprising and counter-intuitive truths about what connects us all as humans.

Everyone tells stories on dates. Sometimes we tell these stories to make people laugh. Sometimes we tell them to make people think. Sometimes we tell them so we can increase the chances we´ll see the other person naked. Paul Shirley´s stories are about an adulthood spent all over the world: living in Spain, playing in the NBA, and having his heart (and spleen) broken. But they´re also stories about growing up in small-town Kansas: triumphant spelling bees, catastrophic middle school dances, and a Sex Ed. class taught by his mother. They´re funny stories. They´re vulnerable stories. Most of all, they´re universal stories, just as the stories we tell on dates should be. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Shirley, Punch Audio.
