Athletes of The Bible was written in 1914 as a teaching aid for boys in the YMCA. The book has been updated with additional information by former Coach Emmett Smith, who regularly used the original book in his Fellowship of Christian Athletes meetings.
Americas Favorite Pastime with its foreign taproot evolved into the modern game. Baseball is traced in the 364-page book from its European origins plus much deeper sources. Cultural beginnings, including the rally monkey, hot dog, peanut and anthems provide historical perspective. The American spirit is captured through baseball, beating to the rhythm of the American culture, sometimes as its direction, but most times its reflection. The goodness of the game exists in both its players serving as role models for the youth, with the Yankee Clipper leading the charge, plus inducing positive progressive change highlighted by the 1947color barrier penetration by Jackie. Type and character makeup of leadership in America and baseball is positioned as integral to the cultural socialization process. Christian religious tenets previously employed in traditional America have been metaphorically Billy-Goated out of the field of play. An orchestrated reshaping from its Founding principles using education and media as hypnotic tools promoting secular-humanist ideals and values has fundamentally transformed America into a nation ripe for governance by the New World Order as One Global Family. The readers thought process is directed to answering the question as to what is the American way? The shear ugliness of baseball bore its soul to the American public during the Synthetic Era as characterized by serpentine-type Congressional hearings involving performance-enhancing-drug use. The author boldly declares America to be a nation on some sort of drug indifferent to toxic societal effects and meritocracy interference. Cultural issues including an intellectual history of PEDs, their affects on performance and leakage into the tributaries plus the evolution of the Promethean Project are well documented. Comparisons are made between the sins of Shoeless Joe and Charlie Hustle and the typical Synthetic Era ballplayer. Hazards of playing ball are probed by comparison to perceived dangers of hit-by-pitch and the Iraq War, shark attacks and automobile accidents. Political perspectives are injected into the read using metaphors, baseball-speak and satire.
This collection TWO ACT PLAYS contains two two act plays:Redemption, andDeath of a Psychiatrist. Redemption is a play about a woman who is trying to redeem herself from a mistake she made twenty years before the play begins. Death of a Psychiatrist is about the killing of a psychiatrist by an ex-patient, who thinks the psychiatrist indulged himself, during the therapy, in an egregious form of what is called countertransference.
Soccer is the world's most popular sport, which makes it the most multicultural of sports. From this it should follow that the multicultural movement here in America would strongly support soccer. But instead of embracing the sport of the "e;Other,"e; the movement has ignored sports, and while younger multiculturalists may be soccer fans, the older ones have generally clung to America's own sports. Soccer in America has ended up being a sport for those in the middle or even on the right rather than for those on the left. The people who show up at soccer games include fraternity jocks, sorority girls and members of the military, none of whom are thought of as multiculturalist or open-minded by those on the left.This book is about sports in America and the rest of the world. The many topics it explores include soccer's place in the world, a comparison of the sports environments in America and England, a critical examination of America's sports, the history of prejudice against soccer in America, and the failure of many of America's leftists to overcome that prejudice.
This book will appeal to life-long baserball fans, particularly those who have followed the game for many years--specifically males over the age of 60, perhaps even age 50, too. Younger followers of athletic contests may also likely have an interest, given the revitalized impact to the sport currently--yearly Major League attendance numbers reflect over 73 Million paying customers in 2009. Cable network coverage proliferates--ESPN and MLB to name just two--continuously streaming the latest information and highlights 24 hours daily to a vast majority of USand international households. Americans are now living longer on average than they did during the time of this book, there currently existing an ever increasing focus on nostalgia-- perhaps due to a wistful longing for certain things and events from the past--when society seemed to be far less complex and simpler pleasures abounded. E-Bay and the numerous flea markets scattered throughout our nation readily attest to this phenomenon. Like any good history book, this work attempts to create a perspective of the circumstances and participants who influenced the relative events of 50 odd years ago. These events helped shape the evolution of the modern game today, a game now more widely driven by economics and media hype.
Chuck Harmons life story symbolizes and transcends our countrys struggle for civil rights and equality.

Chuck Harmon is proud to be called, Cincinnatis First Black Red. This book is an important look at the parallel benchmarks in baseball and civil rights, and Chuck Harmon is one of the quiet patriots who helped make America truly a country where all men and women should expect to be treated equally.

At one point after the boom vang broke loose, the boom and the sail shifted to a higher position. I didnt like the loss of control this caused. The boat was swinging from 0 to 20 degrees in jerky motions, lifting and heeling. The boom vang had been ripped out of its housing. I had an idea what to do and told Roxanne what I had in mind. At a certain moment, with her help holding up the boom vang in a certain way, I would let go of the rudder and lunge forward to grab the creature from her hand and plunge its little head into the second available hole, a slot just under the boom. This she understood, but all the while I was under great stress, anxious for my daughters life and mine. The wind was quite strong and I didnt want the boat to flip over not there, away from any available help. We were two miles from shore in any direction. I checked the waves and wind and then turned the boat into the wind. On my signal to Roxanne, I lurched forward and grabbed the beastly creature and shakily shoved its head in the hole. I then turned the boat back to windward and pulled in on the sheet that pulled the boom back to its correct position. Everything was fine again. In a plastic bag hanging from the boom near the mast were my cigarettes and a lighter. Thats where Roxanne was also handy. She passed me a cigarette and my lighter and I lit it and took a big drag. Ah The rest of the day went beautifully. In the same bag we had a nice light lunch (gourmet style), a couple of baloney sandwiches, and two cans of pop.
ZAMBIA SPORTING SCORE is a historic account of Zambias golden era, when the country produced some of the greatest athletes in Africa. It goes back to the pre-independence days when the country was the British colony called Northern Rhodesia. Among the many sportsmen and women covered in the book are Yotham Muleya, the long-distance runner who died in a car accident while on tour of duty in the United States of America, The Flying Sikh Satwant Singh (motor rally), veteran judo administrator Father Jude McKenna and Lottie Mwale, who was a formidable boxer whose ring name was Kaingo (the Leopard). Lottie was the All-Africa and Commonwealth light-heavyweight boxing champion when he also went to America to have a go at a world title.ZAMBIA SPORTING SCORE records the medals brought home from the All-Africa, Commonwealth and Olympic Games. Zambia scored successes in golf, soccer, and other sports at continental and global events. Then came an eclipse, a period when Zambia only boosted the number of participating countries in international competitions. What drove athletes of the period to success? Is Esther Phiri, the current Queen of the Ring, recapturing that lost glory? This inspiring, well-researched and authoritative book is a must to read for everyone. The opening of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Youth Development Centre in Lusaka, Zambia; will produce sportspersons of the calibre covered in the book.*****All Zambians everywhere held their collective breath just before Stophira Sunzu of the Zambian Football team Chipolopolo boys kicked the penalty. When he scored to make the penalties 8-7 to beat Ivory Coast, pandemonium broke, wild celebrations, jubilation took place on the field and all over Zambia and among well-wishers everywhere. Most of us did not go to bed until the wee hours of the morning. Zambia had just won the most prestigious soccer cup trophy on the continent: The Africa Cup of Nations. This cup had eluded the nation since Independence in 1964. During all the celebrations, Zambians have remembered the National Soccer team that perished in 1993 in a plane crash in Gabon. This may be the right time to ask all Zambians whether we know enough about our Zambian heroes in not just football or soccer, but many other sports.Do you know who in Zambia were at one time the Muhammad Ali of Boxing, the Pele of the country or the greatest soccer player, or who was the best long distance runner? The easy to read book Zambia Sporting Score by Moses Sayela Walubita is what you urgently need at this point in our proud nations history. ZAMBIA SPORTING SCORE describes Zambian achievements in 16 sports in such well known and popular sports as Soccer, Boxing, and Athletics but also less popular sports in Zambia including Netball, Volleyball, Table and Lawn Tennis, Golf and many others. The book describes sports in the Southern African country of Zambia from the 1950s when the country was a British colony of Northern Rhodesia. It describes Zambias greatest sports personalities, team sports, and their achievements. In the country's number one sport of soccer, the book describes the performances of such Zambias legendary players as Ucar Godfrey Chitalu; who is perhaps Zambias best and most dazzling soccer player ever. Samuel 'Zoom' Ndhlovu and Kalusha Bwalya will forever be etched in the history of soccer and sports in Zambia and beyond. Chitalu is by far Zambians equivalent to Pele of Brazil soccer great. Chitalu in one soccer season in 1972 scored 107 goals facing stiff premier club and international defenses. Chitalu was a deadly striker who left goalkeepers sprawled on the ground diving to save his shots. He was Zambia's scoring machine long before the era of Kalusha Bwalya, the 1988 Africa Footballer-of the Year.

People have been skiingand no doubt teaching others to do the samefor thousands of years. The earliest evidence for it is a picture on the wall of a cave in Norway that was drawn sometime around 4500 BC. Skiing is something that we do. It is a behavior. Teaching others to ski is also something that we do. It, too, is a behavior. Pavlov and his dog helped to demonstrate that behavior is lawful and orderly. Various forms of conditioning as well as reinforcement, generalization, discrimination, punishment, and extinction change behavior. But why do we ski and teach others to do the same? These behaviors can also be accounted for, but no one has done ituntil now. Develop a better understanding of why we ski and become a better skier or ski instructor in the process. Youll gain a greater appreciation of the sport once you discover Its About Skiing and Not the Skis.
