Three hilarious British comedy adventures set in Southeast Asia. Siam Storm Giggling like naughty schools kids each time they talk about their upcoming holiday to Thailand, Spock and Stu hope it entails plenty of booze, parties, raunchy sex with acorn-color-skinned beauties, and balmy days "chillaxing" while drinking cocktails on warm sandy beaches.... Boy, are they in for a shock! When a golden box containing the dental remains of the Buddha is stolen and its warrior monks murdered, the Elders send the surviving warrior monk to retrieve the holy relic. The search takes the monk from his isolated Thai monastery in the Cardamom jungle to Cambodia. After discovering that the man responsible has fled to Thailand, he sets off in pursuit. Little does he realize that he is about to run into Stu, Spock, and their new pal, Nick - who is not only thrifty, but also accident-prone. The fun has just begun.... "Once you pick up this hilarious adventure and start reading it, you won’t be able to put it down." - Dinorah Blackman Chalice With soothing music playing in the background, Professor Norman Rumble clasps his hand over his mouth and looks wide-eyed down at his creation glaring back at him.

Hold on tight while Chalice transports you to Cambodia with its spectacular temples, sun-drenched beaches, and lush tropical islands.

The global growth of Internet based Business to Business (B2B) e-commerce, particularly B2B e- marketplace technologies, has promoted a new hope for developing countries aiming to exploit their competitive advantages in the digital economy. Nevertheless, over the past decade, there is little evidence to indicate that developing countries have gained any substantial net benefits from implementing B2B. While Information Systems research often notes the lack of technological and social infrastructure contributing to such sub-optimal B2B value creation, this book presents a new paradigm on the diffusion of B2B in developing countries by presenting an important shift in the study of technology and culture. The book's thesis moves beyond the task-technology alignment to introduce the concept of cultural-technology congruence, empirically investigated in the Thai tourism context. The book should be of particular interest to researchers in the fields of Information Systems, Culture, Tourism, and Management, as well as practitioners and decision makers considering the successful implementation of organisational and national e-strategies.

Das dritte Album der Griechen - ganz viel Psychotic Waltz meets Dream Theater, als Charlie Dominci noch sang.nnMusikalisch haben es sich Until Rain zwischen dem Melodic Progressive Metal von Shadow Gallery oder Circus Maximus und dem epischeren, mehr orchestralen Sound von Symphony X oder Time Requiem bequem gemacht. Und doch haben sie der Musik ihren ganz eigenen Stempel aufgedrückt, indem sie dem progressiven Metal Genre etwas griechische Folklore beigemischt haben sowohl in den Texten als auch in den Melodien. UNTIL RAIN is an alternative prog metal band which was formed back in 2008 in Thessaloniki, Greece. The band's music is a mix of many musical elements such as prog and melodic metal, art rock, electronic music, sometimes combined with extreme metal. Since forming they have released 2 full length albums and 1 EP, gradually evolving their sound from pure prog/fusion to prog/power metal and arriving to their current sound, which is a mixture of dark alternative prog rock and metal. UNTIL RAIN's first album since 2013's well received Anthem To Creation finds the band exploring the dark world of psychological/emotional abuse, loss and doubt and it presents the darkest side of UNTIL RAIN 'till this day. Tempi got slower but also the soundscape got larger and as always a multitude of melodies and hooks will keep you head-banging and singing along to the songs of the album More to the point songs and less fiddling around, lets the new singer of the band Cons Marg (known for his work with Arjen Lucassen's Epic Choir) shine, while the rest of the band lays the foundation of some really heavy & melodic contemporary prog metal. The 2 main composers/lyricists of the band Lef Germenlis & Theodore Amaxopoulos are surrounded this time by the ingenious bassist Linus Abrahamson (known for his work with Andromeda & Constancia), the Maltese workaholic-wonder Matthew Vella on drums and the multitalented Swiss/Thai female singer Donna Zed on backing vocals. Inure was recorded by UNTIL RAIN in various European cities (Thessaloniki, London, Gothenburg and Lausanne) and mixed/mastered by Daniel Cardoso of Anathema in Lisbon, Portugal. ( Anneke Van Giersbergen, Anathema, Head Control System) The album features beautiful artwork by the new greek artist/designer Nassia Kefala and a handdrawn cover, that completely represents the concept of the album and the duality of many inured people. They look lush on the outside and they are rotten on the inside! TRACKS: 1. Progressus In Idem 2. New World Fiction 3. Because Something Might Happen 4. This Fear 5. Tearful Farewell 6.
