Football, baseball, basketball, hockey pro athletes revolt! Too many fights - too many problems - lousy image! Commissioners fed up - players angry at mandated educational seminar attendance! But that's what happened, and the commissioners aren't backing down. All pro athletes have to attend a course or seminar unrelated to sports every year. Dark days for the athletes until one of them sees an ad for the upcoming S.E.S. "Trash Talk" symposium. How perfect is that? None of the athletes knew, or even cared, what S.E.S. was, but trash talk was their specialty. Word of the meeting spread among the athletes like wildfire. They could not apply fast enough. The annual Environmentalist Society Meeting, hosted by the Sarasota Environmental Society (S.E.S.), will be the surprise of a lifetime when the world of professional athletes collides with the world of professional environmentalists in an explosion of laughter. What happens next is worth the price of admission! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Vendetti. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/002146/bk_acx0_002146_sample.mp3.

Lancing College is a co-educational English independent school, founded in 1848 by Nathaniel Woodard, whose aim was to provide education based on sound principle and sound knowledge, firmly grounded in the Christian faith. Lancing was to be the first of a family of over 30 schools founded by Woodard (others include Hurstpierpoint College, Ardingly College and Worksop College). Typical of public schools, the college places emphasis on what might be described as traditional strengths - Anglican Christianity (chapel attendance is compulsory for all pupils, regardless of their religious beliefs) and sporting prowess (notably football, Eton fives, squash, tennis, hockey and cricket). The college is based in 550 acres (2.2 km2) of countryside in West Sussex near the village of Lancing, west of the city of Brighton and Hove, on the south coast of England. The college is situated on a hill which is part of the South Downs and the campus dominates the local landscape. The college overlooks the River Adur and the Ladywell Stream, a holy well or sacred stream within the College grounds has pre-Christian significance.
