  • Landskabsformer af Eigil Holm
    af Eigil Holm

Havet, åer og kilder, samt regn og sne har formet nutidens landskab og gør det stadig, nu med mennesket som medspiller. Bogen beskriver vore landskaber og deres tilblivelse. Mange illustrationer. 10-16 år.Serien Danmarks Naturkanon består af 17 bøger. Alle historier er baseret på fakta.

Derfor har forfatteren Rasmus Bech, der bl.a. tidligere har skrevet om cykelrytter Michael Valgren, skrevet denne bog, der går helt tæt på de dygtige sportsfolk.Et lille udklip fra bogen viser, hvor tæt deres samarbejde er, og hvor mange følelser, der er på spil, når det virkelig gælder. Her svarer parret på, om de er glade eller ærgerlige over, det ikke blev til guld til OL:“Christinna: Langt det meste af tiden er jeg mega stolt og mega glad. Jeg har næsten lyst til at kigge på den hver dag. Der er nogle gange, når vi bliver præsenteret for klippet, hvor vi taber, at det gør lidt ondt. Det rør også et eller andet i mig, når vi sidder og taler om det nu. Hold kæft, hvor var vi tæt på at blive Olympiske Mestre.Kamilla: Lige efter kampen var vi så udmattede og sårbar, at der var mange følelser i spil. Jeg går fra et interview, og det gør jeg normalt aldrig. Jeg kunne bare ikke. Jeg var simpelthen så ked af det. Selvfølgelig var vi ærgerlige, men samtidig fik vi langt om længe den medalje, vi havde drømt om. Jeg fik den medalje, jeg manglede. Og jeg fik den sammen med Christinna.”Læs resten af bogen og få et unikt indblik i, hvordan et unikt makkerskab fungerer!

    The legacy of the Marshall players who perished transcends wins and losses. Their tragic deaths squashed the likelihood of a bloody race riot on campus. The evening of November 14, 1970 was damp and chilly with a steady drizzle and dense fog. Students at Marshall University had no idea that the nights horrific events would change their lives forever. On this night, a plane crash wiped out most of the schools football team. Unless you were there, you could never fully comprehend the gravity of grief that engulfed Huntington, West Virginia, in the days following the worst aviation disaster in the history of American sports. I know. I was there. Ill never forget. It could have been me on that plane. I played football at MU for two seasons. A year before the tragedy, I left the team for personal reasons. When the school began the daunting task of resurrecting its football program in the spring of 71, it was a no-brainer decision for me to rejoin the team and become part of the rebuilding process. Media projects devoted to the plane crash provide well-deserved notoriety. Still, there are glaring omissions. Now, for the first time, former Marshall defensive back Craig T. Greenlee tells the real story the whole story about Thundering Herd football from back in the day.

    Courageous Women * Supportive Men * Helpful AngelsAngels Along the River is an inspirational story of hope, fear, joy and accomplishment that is a testament to the incredible tenacity and spirit of ordinary people everywhere.When Eleanor Lahr read Follow the River, a novel based upon the true experiences of Mary Draper Ingles, it changed her life. Mary was captured in 1755 by Shawnee Indians and carried 500 miles from her home. Eleanor felt inexplicably compelled to retrace Marys escape route. With little previous experience in the great outdoors, but with plucky courage, she planned and trained extensively. Sometimes alone and sometimes with strangers, she hiked for 43 days along the Ohio, Kanawha, and New Rivers.Misunderstandings and ingrained prejudice challenged the band of walkers as much as Mother Nature; however, angels in everyday clothes helped them overcome their personal limitations, bloody blisters, broken bones, and life-threatening situations. Eleanor and her companions carried Mary's courageous story from Kentucky to Virginia in their own remarkable feat of determination and achievement.As an act of self-preservation Eleanor did not understand initially, her physical journey became a transformative personal journey that redefined her as a capable, strong, and independent woman."e;The inspiration is contagious and it affects us all in different waysEleanors book is another carrier of the inspiration.

    Les Cinquantes Sonnets is the first book by poet Kelechukwu Brnfre (www.kelechukwubrnfre.com) This is my first book of poetry that includes my signature poem "e;Zero."e;I wrote this book as a gift to my fiancee at the time for her birthday. I wrote 34 poems for her 34th birthday in the form of Sonnets. I was reading Shakespeare at the time and I was inspired by his sonnets but I formed all of these poems in 16 lines because her favorite number was 16. The first 34 poems were influenced by her and the last 17 poems were influenced by a mixture of people, emotions and situations.I am very thankful for Erica Walker reading it over and encouraging me to make all of last 17 stay consistent with a theme of love, a subject I struggle to write about because it is so subjective. Loving a family member or your children is different from a person you are involved with intimately in a relationship.The format of this book starts with zero and goes to fifty. I used French because I am bilingual French and it seemed to fit the scheme and format of the subject matter in the book.

  • Baseball Is America af Jr Victor Alexander Baltov Spar 17%
    - Origins and History: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
    af Jr Victor Alexander Baltov

    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.

    FOR DECADES, ATHLETES HAVE BEEN A TARGET for companies selling everything from banned substances to several worthless nutritional products with the hope they will make the di?erence between winning and losing. At the expense of being misled, athletes have su?ered irreparable damage from steroids and hormones as well as the side e?ects experienced from stimulants and tainted dietary supplements. In addition, the tremendous stress of strenuous exercise and its contribution to oxidative stress, in?ammation, fatigue, muscle damage and transient immune suppression sets the stage for viewing the athlete in a very di?erent way. In THE MISLED ATHLETE, renowned nutritionist Carl Germano, RD, CNS, CDN and his team present a new look at the athlete as a patient and provide a comprehensive plan for addressing the multiple nutritional needs of the athlete beyond excess protein, stimulants and steroids. Germano discusses the link between the stressor of exercise and the importance of proper recovery through diet manipulation, e?ective training techniques, and the use of legitimate nutritional supplements.THE MISLED ATHLETE gives insight into how the foods athletes eat, which training techniques they use, and how the consumption of certain safe nutritional supplements can successfully address the ravages of intense activity, assist the athlete to recuperate better and help prepare for the next battle.

    af Guy G. Lemieux

    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.

    af Mark C. Bodanza

    In 1933, America was in the midst of the Great Depression. The depth of despair created in the American people earned the panic a singular place in the history of the nations economic turmoil. Football, a uniquely American game, weathered these hard times, adapted, and made some of the pain a little easier to endure. In 1933, author Mark C. Bodanza examines the important role football played in the midst of the nations historic crisis. Bodanza recounts this dramatic year both on and off the field of the professional and college gridirons and analyzes it in the context of the times. He tells the story of a momentous season shared by the high schools of Fitchburg and Leominster, Massachusetts, a rivalry dating back to 1894. In the prior thirty-nine seasons, the teams had played each other forty-nine times. But, 1933 was different; the game had never had such significance. More than ever, Depression-wary Americans needed a reprieve from their cares and concerns. Football provided a welcome relief. Including period photos, 1933 narrates how the sport of footballwhich has created some of the nations most magical moments in sportswas impacted by the Great Depression in a variety of ways, some with lasting consequences.
