Around the World in 50 Years by Albert Podell Book Summary:

The New York Times Best Seller “Amazing . . . the most original travel narrative ever written.” —CounterPunch Around the World in 50 Years is the inspiring story of an ordinary guy who achieved two great goals that others had told him were impossible. First, he set a record for the longest automobile journey ever made around the world, during which he blasted his way out of minefields, survived a serious accident atop the Peak of Death, came within seconds of being lynched, and lost three of the five men who started with him: two to disease, one to the Vietcong. After that, Albert Podell set another record by going to every country on earth. He survived riots, revolutions, civil wars, trigger-happy child soldiers, voodoo priests, jihadists, robbers, corrupt cops, and Cape buffalo. He traveled through every kind of earthquake, cyclone, tsunami, volcanic eruption, snowstorm, and sandstorm that nature threw at him. He ate everything from old camel meat and African field rats to dung beetles and the brain of a live monkey. And he overcame encounters with crocodiles, hippos, anacondas, giant leeches, flying crabs—and several beautiful women who insisted that he stop this nonsense and marry them. Around the World in 50 Years is a remarkable and meaningful tale packed with some of the most memorable, frightening, and hilarious adventure stories you have ever read.

Around the World in 80 Years by David Chance Book Summary:

There are 2 parts to the book. The first section covers some of the important events that took place around the world, from the early part of the 19th century, up to the years following World War II. It features the 2 men that I have always admired, both of whom planned and fought against tyranny. Neither of these men actually used weapons in the Second World War, but they did what they had to do, to preserve our freedom. The 2 men are Sir Winston Churchill and my father, both of whom had army careers, dad's lasting for 31 years. Churchill's was a much shorter span, before he moved into Politics. The second part of the book gives details of my travels around the world to 42 countries. To do this, I fl ew a total of 964,995 miles, taking 1430 fl ights on 91 different types of aircraft. In addition I have traveled far more than a million miles by car. There were many times that I got very close to having my life cut short, but somehow I managed to survive, as I am still here at age 79. It was all very interesting to me and I hope that I have been able to convey some of this excitement in what I have written.

Around the World in 30 Years

Around The World In 50 Years [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Around the World in 30 Years by Harve E. Rawson Book Summary:

This book was written as: (1) the perfect short read while waiting in airports; (2) the ideal bedside companion; and (3) a delightful gift book. Why? (1) The pithy tales are short, humorous, and insightful; (2) each chapter is all-inclusive - you can start and stop anywhere; and (3) there is nothing nasty, embarrassing, or sexy in it. Thus, Dr. Rawson, a psychology professor extraordinaire, introduces us to this charming collection of travel tales. Covering a time span of 35 years, the author takes us on a fascinating view of some of the worlds most exotic locations: the wilds of the Amazonian jungles, the clove plantations of Zanzibar, the pandemic of AIDS in western Africa, the old slave factories of Goree Island off the coast of Senegal, crossing the Andes by train, chewing qat in Yemen, and chatting with haratines in the worlds most secluded country, Mauritania. But more mundane travel experiences are not neglected. Taking your kids to California by car, traveling on Amtrak, living in the Deep South, and even an account of the authors first real trip, a hilarious venture with his parents to California in a 55 Plymouth, are all included. Arranged chronologically, the book takes us step-by-step to ever more venturesome trips. Starting with the first venture outside the United States, the author covers his initial trip to England where he ends up being unable to understand the language, subsisting on Cadbury chocolate bars, and touring Scotland with a busload of Englishmen. From this humble beginning, the reader is transported to the Holy Land, where his brother declares war on the Baptists in his travel group, to the delightful account of surviving taking his two teenager sons to California on a one-month car trip, and later, taking those same teenagers to Morocco to knock the provincialism out of them. Usually traveling with his sardonic but delightful wife, his beguiling, but intolerant, brother, his curious sons, or with groups of bumbling college professors, the author consistently manages to capture not only the unique character of the country visited, but the charm and wisdom of its people. Most importantly, the author consistently makes clear that traveling is a lot of fun and humor is a worldwide commodity easily exchanged. Whether its a green-eyed half-breed Greenlander complaining about the weather, an Inca descendent racing a tired old school bus in Peru, a Japanese bride planning her wedding in Prince Edward Island, or a black football player struggling through Mississippi State, Dr. Rawson finds humor, caring, and compassion among all. Youll love this witty, insightful, and certainly upbeat book!

Male Reproductive Cancers

Around The World In 50 Years [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Male Reproductive Cancers by William D. Foulkes,Kathleen A. Cooney Book Summary:

Knowledge about cancer genetics is rapidly expanding, and has implications for all aspects of cancer research and treatment, including molecular causation, diagnosis, prevention, screening, and treatment. Additionally, while cancer genetics has traditionally focused on mutational events that have their primary effect within the cancer cell, recently the focus has widened, with evidence of the importance of epigenetic events and of cellular interactions in cancer development. The role of common genetic variation in determining the range of individual susceptibility within the population is increasingly recognized, and is now being widely addressed using information from the Human Genome Project. These new research directions will highlight determinants of cancer that lie outside the cancer cell, suggest new targets for intervention, and inform the design of strategies for prevention in groups at increased risk. Today, the NCI is putting more and more money into research into the genetics of cancer. The very first of the NCI’s stated research priorities is a project called The Cancer Genome Atlas. The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) is a comprehensive and coordinated effort to accelerate the understanding of the molecular basis of cancer through the application of genome analysis technologies, including large-scale genome sequencing. The NCI and the NHGRI (National Human Genome Research Institute, where the series editor is employed) have each committed $50 million over three years to the TCGA Pilot Project. This book proposes cover the latest findings in the genetics of male reproductive cancers; specifically cancers of the prostate and testes. The volume will cover the epidemiology of these cancers; model systems, pathology, molecular genetics, and inherited susceptibility.

It may not be obvious why someone like myself would write my memoir. I am not a famous person. I am not a professional athlete. I am not a politician. I am not even known in my local area of North Carolina. I do not fit into any of these typical categories of autobiographical writers. However, as in most people, I have a story to tell that is unique from many and common to some. We all have stories that people can relate to and sympathize with, if only we just tell them. I find a great relief when I learn that others have survived similar struggles that I am going through. I am living proof that it is possible to live through many things and come out the other side a better person...

Inspiration for 50 Years by Bob Morris,Ed Dean Book Summary:

In early 1963, Jake Townley had very little to show for a man in his early 40s. His business efforts had not met with success and his family barely had enough food on the table. Yet, he placed his faith in the Lord. And once the Lord moved, a success story began to unfold and continues today - a story of overcoming - a story of encouragement - a story of tenacity - a story of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire - a story of empowerment that leads to excellence - a story of love for family, the Savior and of the fellow man - a story of vision, staying power and grit, persistence, consistency and the value of work - a story of faith - and a story of blessing. Again, 50 years later, the faith operation component of Townley Engineering & Manufacturing Company is as strong as when Jake placed his foot on the sandy soils of East Lake Weir, Florida. And one man's stubborn faith has positively affected thousands of men, women and children in a number of communities across the United States and the world. If The Lord Wills, the future for the Townley Company and for its team of dedicated people will be a continuation of the faith journey which began 50 years ago. Toro Townley's outlook for the future is bright. "We have experienced monumental challenges in the past. We now have monumental opportunities in the future." This book is a written testament to the history of the Townley Company and its amazing journey thus far as the company prepares for the future.

50 years after the perceptron, 25 years after PDP: Neural computation in language sciences

Around The World In 50 Years [Pdf/ePub] eBook

50 years after the perceptron, 25 years after PDP: Neural computation in language sciences by Julien Mayor,Pablo Gomez,Franklin Chang, Gary Lupyan Book Summary:

This Research Topic aims to showcase the state of the art in language research while celebrating the 25th anniversary of the tremendously influential work of the PDP group, and the 50th anniversary of the perceptron. Although PDP models are often the gold standard to which new models are compared, the scope of this Research Topic is not constrained to connectionist models. Instead, we aimed to create a landmark forum in which experts in the field define the state of the art and future directions of the psychological processes underlying language learning and use, broadly defined. We thus called for papers involving computational modeling and original research as well as technical, philosophical, or historical discussions pertaining to models of cognition. We especially encouraged submissions aimed at contrasting different computational frameworks, and their relationship to imaging and behavioral data.

Human Trafficking Around the World

This unprecedented study of sex trafficking, forced labor, organ trafficking, and sex tourism across twenty-four nations highlights the experiences of the victims, perpetrators, and anti-traffickers involved in this brutal trade. Combining statistical data with intimate accounts and interviews, journalist Stephanie Hepburn and justice scholar Rita J. Simon create a dynamic volume sure to educate and spur action. Hepburn and Simon recount the lives of victims during and after their experience with trafficking, and they follow the activities of traffickers before capture and their outcomes after sentencing. Each chapter centers on the trafficking practices and anti-trafficking measures of a single country: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, France, Germany, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Niger, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Syria, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Around The World In 50 Years [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Fifty Years of Cytochrome P450 Research by Hiroshi Yamazaki Book Summary:

This book encompasses major progress and future directions in cytochrome P450 (P450) research. Included are contributions by pioneers in the discovery of P450, with chapters on the molecular and functional properties of P450 and cutting-edge applications knowledge from various fields. P450 research has its roots in metabolism, but the true beginning was in 1962 with the publication by Tsuneo Omura and Ryo Sato in The Journal of Biological Chemistry on their discovery of the cytochrome. Following this groundbreaking study, over the last half-century, research has revealed that many forms of P450 exist in animals, plants and microorganisms. P450 research has expanded into many different fields including medicine, agriculture and biotechnology and has drawn the attention of industries for its bioengineering applications, such as drug development and creation of the “blue rose”. Also, research on nuclear receptors, which has grown out of research on the regulatory mechanisms of P450 genes, has become an important area in biology, medical science, pharmacology and clinical medicine—for example, with recent developments in personalized medicines. This book will draw readers into the important and exciting world of P450 and will encourage young students and scientists in P450 research to continue expanding the field via new approaches.

These include the following: • What traditional and new pedagogiesare evident in the 21st century? • What is the role of ICT in the teaching and learning process? • What ICT infrastructure is available in schools? • How can teachers and their administrators be prepared for effective practice? • How have these conditions and considerations changed since the first SITES survey in 1998? • What are the trends within and between national education systems? • What do the differences and similarities between these systems suggest? • How shouldchange be promoted in education in order to support teachers in their work? • Is there evidence that key strategic factors commonly found in ICT related educational policies do influence teachers’ pedagogical use of ICT? Because these questions are interconnected, the SITES 2006 researchers recognized that if we are to make sense of changes in pedagogical practicesas a result of IC T use, then we need to view those practices in terms of the interacting layers in the 22 education systems surveyed.

The New Rules of Green Marketing

Around The World In 50 Years [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The New Rules of Green Marketing by Jacquelyn Ottman Book Summary:

Green products have been around since the 1970s, but it’s only in recent years that they’ve become ubiquitous. It’s not because consumers suddenly prize sustainability above all. It’s because savvy green marketers are no longer trying to “sell the earth”—instead they’re promoting the value their products provide: better health, superior performance, good taste, cost-effectiveness, or simply convenience. This central emphasis on primary benefits—the new rules—is critical to winning over the mainstream consumer. The New Rules of Green Marketing helps readers understand why value-based sustainability marketing has become a critical organizational capacity and how they themselves can adopt this approach. Drawing on the latest data from leading researchers and reflecting on learnings from her corporate clients and other pioneers—including GE, Nike, Method, Starbucks, Timberland, HP, NatureWorks, Procter & Gamble, Stonyfield Farm, and Wal-Mart—Ottman provides practical strategies, tools, and inspiration for building every aspect of a credible value-based green marketing strategy. She covers using a proactive approach to sustainability to spur innovation, developing products that are green throughout their life cycle, communicating credibly to avoid accusations of “greenwashing,” teaming up with stakeholders to maximize outreach to consumers, taking advantage of social media, and much more. This book takes the best of Ottman’s previous groundbreaking work it into the 21st century. Her new rules relegate traditional “green guilt” approaches to the recycling bin of history, break green products out of their niche and, ultimately do a far better job of advancing the triple bottom line of people, profits, and planet.

Codifying Choice of Law Around the World

Around The World In 50 Years [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Codifying Choice of Law Around the World by Symeon C. Symeonides Book Summary:

Codifying Choice of Law Around the World chronicles, documents, and celebrates the extraordinary, massive codification of Private International Law (PrIL), or Conflict of Laws that has taken place in the last 50 years, from 1962-2012. During this period, the world has witnessed the adoption of nearly 200 PrIL codifications, EU Regulations, and international conventions---more than in all preceding years since the inception of PrIL. This book provides a horizontal comparison and discussion of these codifications and conventions, first by comparing the way they resolve tort and contract conflicts, and then by comparing the answers of these codifications to the fundamental philosophical and methodological dilemmas of PrIL. In the process, this book re-examines and dispels certain widely held assumptions about choice of law, and the art and science of codification in general. Written by Symeon C. Symeonides, a renowned PrIL and comparative law expert with extensive first-hand experience in drafting codifications and advising other drafters, Codifying Choice of Law Around the World will serve as an indispensable point of reference for any serious study or discussion of PrIL, and comparative law.
