The Sure Thing by Nick Townsend Book Summary:

A compelling insight into how legendary gambler Barney Curley pulled off the greatest horse betting scams in history. THE BOOKIES ALWAYS WIN. Yet, for over four decades Barney Curley has proved himself a rare exception. The country's most renowned and fearless gambler, a man who will back his judgement to win £100,000 and more on a single day, has consistently emerged triumphant from bloody skirmishes with the old enemy. In the summer of 1975 Curley masterminded one of the most spectacular gambles of all time, with a racehorse named Yellow Sam, costing Irish bookmakers around £300,000; the equivalent of some £2m today. No-one believed anything similar could be staged again this century. Bookmakers now have communications and technology in place to thwart any renewed attempts. But challenges inspire Curley and he was determined to beat the system -- again. Thirty-five years later from his first coup, Curley set about staging an ambitious sequel to his Yellow Sam scheme. Curley has never divulged the full details of what happened. Now, for the first time, The Sure Thing reveals the complete story of the months of planning and preparation, with all the trials and tribulations, that went into the biggest organised gamble in racing history.

A Sure Thing by Craig W. Robinson Book Summary:

Decision Making and Change in Human Affairs

Sure Thing Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Decision Making and Change in Human Affairs by H. Jungermann,G. De Zeeuw Book Summary:

It is only just recently that people have the tools to judge how well they are doing when making decisions. These tools were conceptualized in the seventeenth century. Since then many people have worked to sharpen the concepts, and to explore how these can be applied further. The problems of decision-making and the theory developed correspondingly have drawn the interest of mathematicians, psychologists, statisticians, economists, philosophers, organizational experts, sociologists, not only for their general relevance, but also for a more intrinsic fascination. There are quite a few institutionalized activities to disseminate results and stimulate research in decision-making. For about a decade now a European organizational structure, centered mainly around the psy chological interest in decision-making. There have been conferences in Hamburg, Amsterdam, Uxbridge, Rome and Darmstadt. Conference papers have been partly published+. The organization has thus stabilized, and its re latively long history makes it interesting to see what kind of developments occurred, within the area of interest.

Randomedy

Sure Thing Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Randomedy by Nathan Andrew Roberts Book Summary:

A CNN anchorwoman who is too attractive to have gotten her job based solely on her questionable credentials. A wizened and respected CNN anchorman whose famous beard could be its own situation room topic. A nuclear physicist with precognitive abilities and fondness for being killed by buses in the first act. A black man/rap mogul who goes against type and actually lives to the end of the movie. A flatfooted rookie cop who kills a lot of people before all is said and done. A liberal congressman who never met a regulation he didn't like. An aging movie star desperate for attention. Two British Lords ripped from their own time and get a lesson in modern racial etiquette and fighting techniques. A teenage girl on a journey of self-discovery and other-discovery. Two sarcastic Gen Xers who die and nobody cares that they die. A spaced-out feminist folk singer with hairy armpits and terribly broad definitions of rape. A nameless couple who fights all the time and use their kids as emotional weapons against each other. Two Mafia musclemen who try their hardest to not bolster stereotypes about their culture. What do these people have in common? In the real world; absolutely nothing. In my fantasy world I've thought up so I can escape the harsh and overbearing realities of life? Everything. They come together (except for the fighting couple; they're just filler material and give me some space to backhandedly complain about the bad parents of the world I see) and stop a diabolical villain from blowing up New York City.

Hard Choices

Sure Thing Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Hard Choices by Isaac Levi Book Summary:

It is a commonplace that in making decisions agents often have to juggle competing values, and that no choice will maximize satisfaction of them all. However, the prevailing account of these cases assumes that there is always a single ranking of the agent's values, and therefore no unresolvable conflict among them. Isaac Levi denies this assumption, arguing that agents often must choose without having balanced their different values and that to be rational, an act does not have to be optimal, only what Levi terms "admissible." This book explores the consequences of denying the assumption and develops a general approach to decision-making under unresolved conflict. Professor Levi argues not only against the "strict Bayesian" position, but also against all the recent attempts to develop alternative models to Bayesianism. The book, which continues from his earlier The Enterprise of Knowledge, is certain to make an original and controversial contribution to the debates over choice theory.

The Earthquake Prophet

Sure Thing Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Earthquake Prophet by David H. Brandin Book Summary:

In this distinctive collection of thirty-nine short stories, author David H. Brandin mixes satire and political incorrectness with startling story-line twists in the tradition of O. Henry. Divided into four parts, The Earthquake Prophet combines modern history, fantasy, and current events to deliver a treasure trove of prose. Brandin delves into a variety of subjects that range from earthquake prediction and World War II to the hot political topics of today such as global warming, sanctuary cities, and TSA’s no-?y lists. With wit and his own unique brand of humor, Brandin o?ers an interesting explanation for the collapse of the American economic system; deftly describes the inanity of professional politicians; exposes corruption in the judicial system; and skewers high-stakes issues in national security. Stories also explore how the ordinary can turn extraordinary. Scuba diving takes a strange turn, a piano lesson lapses into terror, and an unusual Texas slot machine creates quite the controversy. Blending political, historical, and general ?ction with tales of science ?ction and fantasy, The Earthquake Prophet promises a fascinating literary adventure.

Essays on Ethics, Social Behaviour, and Scientific Explanation

Sure Thing Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Essays on Ethics, Social Behaviour, and Scientific Explanation by J.C. Harsanyi Book Summary:

When John Harsanyi came to Stanford University as a candidate for the Ph.D., I asked him why he was bothering, since it was most un likely that he had anything to learn from us. He was already a known scho lar; in addition to some papers in economics, the first two papers in this vol ume had already been published and had dazzled me by their originality and their combination of philosophical insight and technical competence. However, I am very glad I did not discourage him; whether he learned any thing worthwhile I don't know, but we all learned much from him on the foundations of the theory of games and specifically on the outcome of bar gaining. The central focus of Harsanyi's work has continued to be in the theory of games, but especially on the foundations and conceptual problems. The theory of games, properly understood, is a very broad approach to social interaction based on individually rational behavior, and it connects closely with fundamental methodological and substantive issues in social science and in ethics. An indication of the range of Harsanyi's interest in game the ory can be found in the first paper of Part B -though in fact his owncontri butions are much broader-and in the second paper the applications to the methodology of social science. The remaining papers in that section show more specifically the richness of game theory in specific applications.

RiskGrade Your Investments

Sure Thing Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

RiskGrade Your Investments by Gregory Elmiger,Steve S. Kim Book Summary:

Praise for RiskGrade Your Investments "In the same way that the introduction of RiskMetrics raised the level of the discussion (and sometimes debate) regarding market risk measurement and management at large financial institutions, the introduction of RiskGrades and this book represent a major step in the understanding and application of risk measurement and management techniques by individual investors." -Charles Smithson, Managing Partner, Rutter Associates, and author of Managing Financial Risk What Others Are Saying About RiskGrades.com Forbes' best of the web 2002: "Savvy analysis, all free." "A new and impressive Web-based service that promises to offer a clue to the question of how risky is your portfolio. RiskMetrics has been measuring portfolio risk for big financial institutions since 1994 and now sheds some light on investor risk. RiskGrades helps investors combine risk and return to make proper investment decisions." -BusinessWeek "Owning a high percentage of company stock in a retirement plan--any more than 20 percent--is one of the riskiest propositions in investing, and yet employees almost never measure this risk objectively or reduce their positions. . . . It is easy to approximate investment risk. A useful tool for measuring risk is available through RiskMetrics Group's www.riskgrades.com, a service that will measure the volatility and return of single securities or whole portfolios against all asset classes and international regions." -Financial Times "Without divining what exactly a fund owns, the system simply distills risk down to the likelihood of finding a severe change in its value on a given day. . . . Running a few notable funds through the rating bath can be a useful check on what an investor is putting on the line for a given dollar of investment gains." -Barron's "Mathematicians and economists use complex computer programs to examine the effects of different shocks on different portfolios. Such tests have been used for several years by professionals who manage multimillion-dollar investment funds. But RiskMetrics, a spinoff of J.P. Morgan Chase, is now providing similar tools for individual investors. RiskMetrics runs a Web site, www.riskgrades.com, which investors can use free of charge. The Web site allows investors to stress-test individual stocks and mutual funds as well as portfolios." -The Wall Street Journal

Risk Evaluation and Management

Sure Thing Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Risk Evaluation and Management by V.T. Covello,Joshua Menkes,J.L. Mumpower Book Summary:

Public attention has focused in recent years on an array of technological risks to health, safety, and the environment. At the same time, responsibilities for technological risk as sessment, evaluation, and management have grown in both the public and private sectors because of a perceived need to anticipate, prevent, or reduce the risks inherent in modem society. In attempting to meet these responsibilities, legislative, judicial, regulatory, and private sector institutions have had to deal with the extraordinarily complex problems of assessing and balancing risks, costs, and benefits. The need to help society cope with technological risks has given rise to a new intellectual endeavor: the social and behavioral study of issues in risk evaluation and risk management. The scope and complexity of these analyses require a high degree of cooperative effort on the part of specialists from many fields. Analyzing social and behavioral issues requires the efforts of political scientists, sociologists, decision analysts, management scientists, econ omists, psychologists, philosophers, and policy analysts, among others.

That We May Know Him

Sure Thing Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

That We May Know Him by Annette Kraft Book Summary:

Readers of this book will have the exciting and at times convicting experience of sitting at the feet of the Lord and gaining His perspective of who He is and what His goals are for each and every person He has created. Each day's lesson was transcribed by Annette Kraft during her times of prayer and Bible study. Included are appropriate scripture verses to help clarify and validate each lesson. Through very simple, clear, and loving words, one can actually sense the power of the sacrificial love of God, our Father, in sending His Son as the perfect example and sacrifice for each of our lives. The progression of the lessons leads one on a precise path of growth with the Savior. It begins with the initial relationship, forgiveness, and reconciliation, and continues through growing in grace to the sanctification process. There are even instructions about how to deal with the present tumult in our world, and how to depend on God in the midst of all our struggles. These one-hundred-and-fifty-three lessons were received during the final year of Annette's life as her body was being consumed by cancer. The miraculous way she continued to survive during this period was an indication of the Lord using her faithful heart to deliver such an important message.
