  • Every time there is a major financial crisis, and there have been quite a number of them in history, we fi nd that there are many who are ready to dwell on blaming people and institutions; and only very few who offer really serious and constructive new proposals for improvements in our fi nancial system that can repair the damage and reduce the impact of future crises. It is much harder to do the latter, as it requires coming to an understanding of the real origins of the crisis.

  • It was a really hot summer’s day many years ago. I was on my way to pick up two items at the grocery store. In those days, I was a frequent visitor to the supermarket because there never seemed to be enough money for a whole week’s food-shopping at once. You see, my young wife, after a tragic battle with cancer, had died just a few months earlier. There was no insurance -- just many expenses and a mountain of bills.

  • This book is a very short introduction to a very big topic. In fact, it is a very short introduction to two very big topics. On the one hand, it is about a place and its people: Africa. On the other, it is about the past of that place, as it has been envisaged by Africans and written about by historians. The sheer scale of both place and past is colossal. Africa: an entire continent, in terms of language and culture the world’s most diverse, stretching from the southern shores of the Mediterranean to the Cape of Good Hope and today comprising over 50 separate nations. The cradle...

  • Welcome, let’s take a minute and revisit what we have learned so far. We started out with an example attack and then focused on one tool that would have given a lot of bang for the buck, a firewall. If you reflect back carefully on the firewalls and ways to avoid firewalls then you realize we introduced the concepts of threats and countermeasures. We covered the history of the threat as far back as 1995 to the most recent type of attacks.

  • William Weir, author of New Page Book's 50 Battles That Changed the World, takes another look at the history of warfare, focusing on the hardware that served those famous battles, as well as others not as glorious. Included are: * Individual weapons-from spears to the submachine gun. * Crew-served weapons-from battering rams to "Big Bertha". * Unmanned weapons-from punji stakes to "Bouncing Betty" landmines and trap guns.

  • These past few years, all you had to do was turn on a radio or flip to a sports cable channel, and you could count on hearing some blowhard give you his opinion about steroids and baseball and what it says about our society and blah blah blah. Well, enough already. I'm tired of hearing such short-sighted crap from people who have no idea what they're talking about. Steroids are here to stay. That's a fact. I guarantee it. Steroids are the future. By the time my eight-year-old daughter, Josie, has graduated from high school, a majority of all professional...

  • Listening to howling coyotes and sitting underneath the big sky and millions of stars were things I did often growing up in South Dakota. I remember admiring the works of an awesome Creator, not realizing what plans He had for my life. It was diffi cult for me to comprehend how all those millions of stars were hung. At night after the fl oodlights were turned off on our concrete basketball court and my brother and father had gone in the house, I would routinely stand out there on the darkened basketball court, dreaming.

  • Women’s basketball hasn’t grown. It has exploded. In the last four decades, the number of girls playing interscholastic basketball has skyrocketed. Youth leagues have sprung up everywhere. The number of summer camps seems to double annually. More and more colleges are developing big time programs, and girls are playing at younger ages than ever before. More players are being recruited to play in college, and there are more professional opportunities for players after college. In addition, more women officiate and coach at all levels.

  • In Malta football is a national obsession. Social and political events come second to World Cup fixtures. Those about to be wed in holy matrimony avoid clashing with football fixtures, thereby ensuring that their guests will be both present (and attentive), and in good humour. Political rallies in Malta are shifted so as not to clash with a big game (be it club or national team) broadcast on satellite TV from England or Italy. The Malta Parliament has even had its sittings adjusted to suit the international football calendar.

  • Hark, Hark! The giant's ponderous hammer rings on the anvil of destiny. Enter, thou massive figure, Bismarck, and in deadly earnest take thy place before Time's forge. ¶ It is, it must be, a large story--big with destiny! The details often bore with their monotony; they do not at all times march on; they drag, but they do indeed never halt permanently; ahead always is the great German glory. ¶ Forward march, under Prince Bismarck. He is our grim blacksmith, looming through the encircling dark, massive figure before Time's forge....

  • On 15 April 1997, at Shea Stadium in New York, Major League Baseball honored the great Jackie Robinson by celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of his historic entry into the big leagues. At that time, I said, "The day Jackie Robinson stepped on a major league field will forever be remembered as baseball's proudest moment." Jackie's achievement, so ably assisted by Branch Rickey, was a seminal event not only for baseball but also for the entire country. For the first time, baseball, long hailed as our national pastime, truly became the game that represented all of America....

  • A confession: for almost two decades I hated baseball (well, not exactly hated, more like couldn’t care less). The game—in the Bigs, at least—was virtually unrecognizable to me, what with the “errors” that are astronomical salaries, cookie-cutter stadiums, and free agency. Take, for example, the designated hitter rule: it is, frankly, a sin, venial at a minimum. If you’re a ballplayer, friends, then pick up the lumber and go to work with the rest of the fellows in sanitaries. And while you’re at it, take George Steinbrenner, the Daddy Warbucks of the sport.

  • Mike Piazza had one thing on his mind when he stepped up to the plate for the first time in the New York Mets’ game against the San Francisco Giants. It was May 5, 2004, and the Mets’ slugger desperately wanted to hit a home run. Hitting homers was as natural as breathing air to Piazza. In 11 years in the big leagues as a catcher, he had smashed 351 round-trippers of every kind: line-drive rockets, towering moon shots, bottom-of-the-ninth blasts, crushing grand slams.

  • On October 6, 1941, the New York Yankees concluded the Major League Baseball season by defeating the Brooklyn Dodgers 3–1 in the final game of that year’s World Series. It was a Fall Classic short on offense— both teams combined for only twenty-eight runs in five games—but certainly not short on drama. With the Dodgers trailing in the series two games to one, Brooklyn catcher Mickey Owen committed one of the most infamous gaffes in big league history during the pivotal fourth game.

  • This is the story of an event that exploits violence and promotes extravagantly irresponsible and destructive behavior among the persons who attend it. Thousands upon thousands of football fans from two states, their brains united into a single altered state, arrive annually at the Cotton Bowl stadium, bellowing exhortations for the spillage of blood. The Texas- Oklahoma game, which now has been conducted one hundred times, and all that surrounds it, has arisen into the manliest of spectacles and is genuinely about as politically incorrect as you can get.

  • A mix of leading scholars and exciting new writers, the authors show how closely the shape of education is interwoven with that of society. The big picture that emerges is that, even as the overall intention of post-apartheid policy-makers has been to reconcile the interests of unequal and competing social classes and races, the interests of a new, deracialised middle class have come to dominate in formal education. This is despite the strengthening of teacher unions and the fact that movements in adult education and related spheres are re-emerging with a revitalised emancipatory agenda....

  • A year ago my life was shattered. I was exhausted. My dad had died out of a sudden and my relationships were chaotic. I didn’t suspect then that out of the darkest sadness was about to appear the most precious gift. I could see a big Secret. I followed it throughout history. The secret had been buried. The secret had been wanted. The secret had been forbidden. I couldn’t believe who were those who knew it. They were the greatest men in history.
