    The Seventh Star is a deeply personal, unflinching and unapologetic memoir that sheds light on an intense childhood spent on Detroit's notorious West 7 Mile, the pivotal role that the area's hip hop scene played, and the rise to national prominence Swifty McVay and his peers experienced after the massive mainstream success of the group D12. Ondre Moore, better known by his stage name Swift -- or Swifty McVay -- speaks plainly here, telling the inside story of how the members of D12 met and how their relationships have evolved throughout the years. He describes D12's close connection and initially mixed reaction to a then little-known rapper, Marshall Mathers III, better known as Eminem. But Swifty also details the significant struggles each of them overcame in their personal and professional lives -- including the bleak and brutal deaths of group members Bugz and Proof -- as they rose through the ranks in the demanding world of rap. Finding anchors in sobriety and spirituality, Swifty continues to challenge himself creatively as he releases solo albums and tours today.The Seventh Star is the unique story of an artist finding his voice in America's heartland, succinctly and intimately told by a creative powerhouse in the world of hip hop.The Seventh Star also includes a 7 track EP that reflects on the life of Swifty McVay. The EP has artist features from Obie Trice, MRX SX, Lil David Ruffin, Tristan Lee, and Maestro and production from JustChillBeat, Silent Riot, MRK SX, and Dame Grease. The Seventh Star project was executive produced by LaBront "LB" Askew.

    Resistance to German-led Axis occupation occurred all the way across the European continent during the Second World War. It took a wide range of forms – non-cooperation and disinformation, sabotage, espionage, armed opposition and full-scale partisan warfare. It is an important element in the experience and the national memory of the peoples who found themselves under Axis government and control. For over thirty years there has been no systematic attempt to give readers a panoramic yet detailed view of the make-up, actions and impact of resistance movements from Scandinavia down to Greece and from France through to Russia. This authoritative and accessible survey, written by a group of the leading experts in the field, provides a reliable, in-depth, up-to-date account of the resistance in each region and country along with an assessment of its effectiveness and of the Axis reaction to it. An extensive introduction by the editors Philip Cooke and Ben H. Shepherd draws the threads of the varied movements and groups together, highlighting the many differences and similarities between them.The book will be a significant contribution to the frequently heated debates about the importance of individual resistance movements. It will be thought-provoking reading for everyone who is interested in or studying occupied Europe during the Second World War.

    “Velez-Mitchell cracks the Jodi Arias code—peeling away the lies to reveal the disturbing truth behind this horrific crime of betrayal, deceit, and revenge.” —Jim Moret, chief correspondent, Inside Edition 
     
    On June 9, 2008, the butchered body of Travis Alexander was found in his Mesa, Arizona home. The grisly nature of his death made instant headlines: with twenty-nine knife wounds, his throat slit, and a gunshot to the head, Travis was left to die. The prime suspect in the case was Alexander’s ex-girlfriend, the attractive and soft-spoken Jodi Arias. Though Arias initially said that she was nowhere near the scene of the crime, her lies evolved multiple times before finally resting on an appalling claim: she had killed Travis in self-defense. Along the way, startling details emerged about the Mormon couple’s relationship, and soon graphic stories of their lurid sexual encounters and jealousy-driven blowouts revealed a dark side to their life together.  
     
    Now, award–winning broadcast journalist and bestselling author Jane Velez-Mitchell, a veteran of some of the most storied court cases in recent memory, goes behind the scenes of the trial and into the mind of a killer. Separating fact from fiction, she reports on the bizarre and explicit stories that have both shocked and fascinated the American public—from Jodi’s romantic history before meeting Travis, to their torrid sex life together, to the complicated role their Mormon faith played in the relationship’s demise.  
     
    Complete with photos from the case and Jane Velez-Mitchell’s fresh insights on the crime, Exposed takes readers behind closed bedroom doors to uncover the truth behind the secret and sordid life of Jodi Arias.

    Beloved German cyclist Jens Voigt isn't a superstar in the traditional sense of the word. Although he won three stages of the Tour De France—and wore the yellow jersey twice—Voigt never claimed an overall victory. He became a star because he embodies qualities that go beyond winning and losing: sacrifice, selflessness, reliability, and devotion. European and American crowds were drawn to his aggressive riding style, outgoing nature, and refreshing realness.Voigt adopted a tireless work ethic that he carried throughout his career. In Shut Up, Legs! (a legendary Jensism), Voigt reflects upon his childhood in East Germany, juggling life as a professional cyclist and a father of six, and how he remained competitive without doping. Shut Up, Legs! offers a rare glimpse inside his heart and mind.
