It was the race for the bomb. America was at war a long way from home. Hitler´s war machine was storming across Europe. Russia feared the German threat and secretly wanted to become a world power, more feared than it already was. All three nations knew that whoever split the atom and developed the Atomic Bomb first would rule the world. A stealth operation within the U. S. Government dispatched their man with no memory to Los Alamos where physicists, chemists, and scholars were frantically trying to build the bomb. Ambrose Lincoln was himself a human experiment, a man whose mind had been erased by electronic shock treatments because the rogue operation believed he could be more effective if he wasn´t shackled by fears and memories of the past. It would be his duty to uncover and silence those who were stealing America´s most vital secrets and selling them to Russia and Germany. If he fails the United States might well lose the war, and Lincoln finds himself embedded in a conspiracy of lies where nothing is as it seems to be. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Woodfin.

Here lies that famous Raphael by whom Nature feared to be conquered while he lived, and when he was dying, feared herself to die. (Inscription on Raphael´s sarcophagus) Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, known across the world simply by the name Raphael, stands as one of the main pillars of the High Renaissance, an iconic example of the balance between spirituality and humanistic inquiry that characterized the time period. Although he lived just 37 years, his career produced an amazingly rich output, and he completed more works than many artists do over careers spanning twice the length. At the same time, Raphael´s art combined central tropes associated with the Renaissance while remaining remarkably original. As such, his career is worth exploring not only in its own right but also for the ways in which he typified contemporary artistic techniques, including a return to antiquity and the balance between mathematical accuracy, rational thought, and religious devotion. While Raphael´s own themes did not vary greatly throughout his career, he led a relatively nomadic existence, and his life reflects the trends associated with late 15th-century and early 16th-century Italy. Born in Umbria and raised in the Umbria court, Raphael was exposed to a wealth of artistic influences and high culture, characteristic of the early Renaissance shift toward humanism and artistic appreciation. Although Raphael´s talent was generational, his life did not involve the extreme poverty and destitution that often characterized the lives of other famous artists. 1. Language: English.
