The first five years were filled with high adventure, with dreams coming true, with new friendships beginning and old friendships growing. Most of all, though, the years were filled with music being made. We thought about songs night and day, chased the things. I was surrounded by songwriters, musicians, producers, engineers, managers, by people who lived to make music, and we got to see the world through songs. There were a lot of firsts, one after another: First time leaving Oklahoma for Nashville, first time hearing one of our songs on the radio, first time hitting number one. We won¿t ever get to go through all those firsts again, but this book is my chance to get together with the people who shared the experiences and together remember how it all went down. This book gathers what comes to our minds when we think of the first five years and the songs that came to life during that time.Inside these pages you¿ll find the music that got released in those first five years, five CDs of it. But you¿ll also find a few recordings that we¿ve never shared, some of my favorites. You¿ll find photographs that have never been made public, behind-the-scenes images from before the first record and others from during the journey. There are artifacts from the vaults, things I¿ve saved myself, bits and pieces of this history that mean a lot to me. I¿ve always wanted to bring people closer to what I saw, what I experienced. This feels like the closest I¿ve come to doing just that.

When a little boy asks his mother about what God looks like and many other questions as well she answers him with lots of details. This story began when author Linda Wilson s three daughters were young. This story was written and illustrated in response to their questions and the questions of many other children through the years about God. Children yearn for the literal, touchable truth about all things, including the unseen God of the universe. Understanding that truth is quite a task for children in their formative years. Their eager and open minds deserve good answers to their good questions. What Does God Look Like? seeks to help each child know who God is and how much He loves and cares about each of them; relieve any fears or misconceptions about death and reveal a biblical, pleasant picture of heaven for them; and reinforce the teaching that God is not only our Lord and Savior but also our comforter, teacher, and everlasting Father. What Does God Look Like? encourages each child to see God s reflection in his or her face and to make an indelible impression on them that they are made in God s image.

This textbook primarily explains the construction of classical fluid model to readers in a holistic manner and the way it is constructed. Secondly, the book also demonstrates some possible modifications of the initial model which either make the model applicable in some special cases (viscous or turbulent fluids) or simplify it in accordance with peculiarity of a particular problem (hydrostatics, two-dimensional flows, boundary layers, etc.). The book explains theoretical concepts in two parts. The first part is dedicated to the derivation of the classical model of the perfect fluid. The second part of the book covers important modifications to the fluid model which account for calculations of momentum, force and the laws of energy conservation. Concepts in this section include the redefinition of the stress tensor in cases of viscous or turbulent flows and laminar and turbulent boundary layers. The text is supplemented by appropriate exercises and problems which may be used in practical classes. These additions serve to teach students how to work with complex systems governed by differential equations. Classical Fluid Mechanics is an ideal textbook for students undertaking semester courses on fluid physics and mechanics in undergraduate degree programs.

The economy has hit a soft patch.' - US Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, reacting to the weak US job growth in June 2004 Mats Larsson: 'No, the economy is closing in on the limits of business development and economic growth and we are starting to see the consequences. In the next few years we will need to rethink economic policies and business strategies.' The Limits of Business Development and Economic Growth details what this means for your company, your industry or your country! There are limits to business development and economic growth. With the help of modern production and information technologies, companies are coming ever closer to the limits of what can be achieved but ultimately nothing can be done in less than no time and at less than no cost. We now need to find areas of competitive advantage that have not yet been fully exploited. This book presents both the problems and the solutions in an accessible way for experts and non-experts alike.

‘Take this woman into custody,’ thunders the Reverend. ‘Arrest her. She has viciously attacked me, and in that bundle is wrapped a dead child!’ It is 1860: four lives intertwine. Chrissy Hogarth is arrested in St Dunstan's church while a blizzard blows outside. Lokim – a gentle herdsman – is attacked by a lion in the heat of central Africa. James Stewart – a medical student – tutors the children of the great David Livingstone, while in Dundee Mina Stephen – the daughter of a rich shipbuilder – nurses a growing social conscience. Before they meet, Chrissy must remember a traumatic event and Lokim will suffer the privations of a terrible journey. James must face the realities of life and death on the Zambezi and Mina will learn that a dark secret is concealed within her privileged family home. Based around events described in contemporary letters, journals and a 1908 biography, Dappled Lightcaptures the idealism of Stewart whose reputation was damaged by rumours of a relationship with Mary Livingstone, but who went on to dedicate his many talents to the ending of slavery, the advancement of education and the promotion of racial equality.

There is a clear relation between the way children are raised and the way the world is heading. Famous philosophers and educationists such as Kant, Dewey, Montessori and Freire, exposed clearly the direct link between the social and political abuses of their time and the way in which children were brought up. From their analysis they each conceived the ambition of making the world a better place through educational reform. For various reasons it is not fashionable these days to make any kind of direct connection between child upbringing and ‘the state of the world’. The project of child-rearing gradually became focussed on individual development. In this book, Dutch child-psychologist Micha de Winter argues that there should be much more to child-raising, education and youth policy – for example, to learn to understand and practice democratic citizenship, humanity and freedom. What does it mean to live in a democratic society, how do you resist the seductions of ‘them-versus-us’ thinking which both offers the feelings of security and of belonging to a group and at the same time invites the risk of dehumanizing and excluding the other? Socialization from this perspective is a common responsibility that requires an educative civil society.

The rich agricultural land of northeastern North Carolina was originally settled in the mid-18th century and, in 1777, divided into two counties: Edgecombe and Nash. In 1818, the Battle family established a textile mill that remained in operation for more than 175 years and became the basis for the city of Rocky Mount. The Atlantic Coastline Railroad chose the area as its repair shop in 1899 and, at the turn of the 20th century, the area was booming. Diverse communities produced outstanding educators, groundbreaking physicians, and business leaders. Residents included Olympians, baseball hall of famer Buck Leonard, and basketball greats Phil Ford and Buck Williams. Creative citizens became award-winning musicians, painters, and writers, like novelist Kaye Gibbons and entertainer Kaye Kyser. Military service in conflicts from the Revolutionary War to the Iraq War included generals, admirals, and a Medal of Honor recipient. Legendary Locals of Edgecombe and Nash Counties celebrates some of the individuals who have left their mark.

William Hogarth (16971764) is an artist whose popularity has never waned since his own day. He has been characterized variously as a witty satirist, stern moralist, aggressive self-promoter, detached observer, and man of the people. His celebrated patriotism and Britishness were shaped, paradoxically, by the remarkably cosmopolitan character of the artistic environment in which he lived. His distinctive urban and political themes reflect the concerns of an increasingly metropolitan society. Hogarths contribution to the development of modern British art was unique and his influence has been enormous, his multi-faceted output ranging from elegant conversation pieces to salacious brothel scenes. His reputation has been based almost entirely on his numerous prints and engraved works, including famous series such as A Rakes Progress, A Harlots Progress, Marriage A-la-Mode, Industry and Idleness, Gin Lane, Beer Street and the Four Stages of Cruelty. This attractive book reproduces a selection from these and other representative prints, introduced by a brief overview of the artist and his times.

It's the Cold War. Commander Grant Stevens--intelligence officer and Navy SEAL--is assigned to the black ops division of the Naval Investigative Service. His present mission: Prevent the USS Bronson, the newest, most sophisticated destroyer in America's arsenal from being hijacked.Stevens and his friend, Senior Chief Joe Adler, will take on Russian commandos and an old KGB nemesis, while they hunt for and try to flush out a Russian mole, who could be buried deep in the heart of the U.S. Navy itself.EXCERPT:Grabbing the commando's Norinko 9mm with its silencer, he shoved the weapon to the side. In less than the blink of an eye, with all the strength he could muster, Grant plunged the eight-inch steel blade upward into the assailant's chest, cutting through the wetsuit, through the flesh, right below the sternum. In a true 'sentry silencing' technique, he ripped in side to side several times. The sheer force of the attack drove the commando backward, Grant pushing his own body against the intruder until both fell hard on the deck, groans coming from both men. For an instant, Grant felt as if he were going to pass out, the blackness closing in around him. But his own survival prevailed, and with renewed strength he jammed his knee into the commando's groin, his hand pinning the weapon against the deck, pressure on the knife never easing. Blood began gushing from the wound, slowly beginning to seep into the porous wetsuit. Grant held his position until the would-be assassin stopped struggling, the body twitching before going completely limp, a prolonged gurgling sound escaping from his throat, the final breath leaving his body. Yanking his knife from the chest, Grant pushed himself away, falling on his butt. With his chest heaving, he rested his head against his knees for a moment, squeezing his eyes shut. When he looked up, he was staring at the body of a stranger, a stranger who Grant assumed had more than likely come to eliminate him, someone who didn't have any intention of dying for his country.NOTE: Previously published as "THE SILENT OPTION"; no longer available for distribution.

American Modernist Poetry and the Chinese Encounter offers a framework for understanding the variety of encounters by eight different American poets with their imagined 'Chinese' subject. While the tradition of Asian-American literature and criticism is well-established, there has been less exposure to how China-based critics have viewed the increasing popularity of canonical and emerging American poetry. Contributors to the volume read the claims of specific poems alongside the actual and tumultuous changes China faced between 1911 and 1979 and suggest that each of the poets attempted to engage their subject with a degree of commitment that presaged China's subsequent dominance
