Man on Fire Stephen Kelman 2016-02-16 John Lock has fled the quiet desperation of his life in England--decades wasted in a meaningless job, a marriage foundering in the wake of loss, and a terrible secret he cannot bear to share with his wife--and has come to India to meet his destiny. A destiny dressed in a white karate suit and sporting an impressive moustache. John has come to offer his help to a man who has learned to conquer pain, a world record-breaker who specializes in feats of extreme endurance and ill-advised masochism. Bibhuti Nayak has survived forty-three kicks to the unprotected groin in ninety seconds, three forty-pound slabs of concrete smashed over his groin with a sledgehammer, and thirty-one watermelons dropped on his stomach in one minute from a height of more than thirty feet. His next record attempt--to have fifty baseball bats broken over his body--will be the crowning moment in a career that has seen him rise from poverty to become a minor celebrity in a nation where standing out from the crowd requires tenacity, courage, and perhaps a touch of madness. John is welcomed into Bibhuti's family and into the color and chaos of Mumbai, where he encounters Ping-Pong-playing monks, a fearless seven-year-old martial arts warrior, and an old man who longs for the monsoon to wash him away. As he and Bibhuti take their leap of faith together, John sets out to rewrite a brave end to a life poorly lived.

Forged in Crisis Nancy F. Koehn 2014 How do you lead frightened people forward to success despite overwhelming odds? Ernest Shackleton should have gone down in history as a failed leader when his 1912 expedition to Antarctica took a dangerous turn. But despite a series of setbacks that left him and his men in life-threatening circumstances, he managed to keep his team moving forward so that they returned home safely. His story is a lesson in staying motivated and reassessing your goals in the wake of failure. In Forged in Crisis, Harvard Business School professor and historian Nancy Koehn looks at the lives of five exceptional leaders and reveals how they made the tough choices that allowed them to persevere. She examines the inspiring stories of Ernest Shackleton, Abraham Lincoln, environmentalist Rachel Carson, former slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass, and German Resistance activist Dietrich Bonhoeffer. These extraordinary leaders displayed stunning abilities to exert lasting influence despite turbulence, disruption, and personalities that may have masked their abilities. By examining their individual values, strategies, and trade-offs, she extracts powerful lessons in what it takes to lead and triumph in the face of a crisis.
Blueprint for Black Power Amos N. Wilson 1998 Afrikan life into the coming millennia is imperiled by White and Asian power. True power must nest in the ownership of the real estate wherever Afrikan people dwell. Economic destiny determines biologial destiny.

White treatment of Afrikan Americans, despite a myriad of theories explaining White behavior, ultimately rests on the fact that they can. They possess the power to do so. Such a power differential must be neutralized if Blacks are to prosper in the 21st century ... Aptly titled, 'Blueprint for Black Power' stops not at critique but prescribes radical, practical theories, frameworks and approaches for true power. It gives a biting look into Black potentiality.

Chassis Design William F. Milliken 2002 Maurice Olley, one of the great automotive design, research and development engineers of the 20th century, had a career that spanned two continents. Olley is perhaps best known for his systematic approach to ride and handling. His work was so comprehensive that many of the underlying concepts, test procedures, analysis, and evaluation techniques are still used in the auto industry today. Olley’s mathematical analyses cover design essentials in a physically understandable way. Thus they remain as useful today as when they were first developed. For example, they are easily programmed for study or routine use and for checking the results of more complex programs. Chassis Design – Principles and Analysis is based on Olley’s technical writings, and is the first complete presentation of his life’s work. This new book provides insight into the development of chassis technology and its practical application by a master. Many examples are worked out in the text and the analytical developments are underpinned by Olley’s years of design experience. COMPLETE CONTENTS Maurice Olley – his life and times Tyres and steady–state cornering – slip angle effects (primary) Steady–state cornering– steer effects (secondary) Transient cornering Ride Oscillations of the unsprung Suspension linkages Roll, roll moments, and skew rates Fore–and–aft forces Leaf springs – combined suspension spring and linkage Appendices Comprehensive and well–illustrated with over 400 figures and tables, as well as numerous appendices.

Environmental Modelling and Prediction Gongbing Peng 2001-11-06 In this book the authors consider the natural environment as an integrated system. The physical, chemical and biological processes that govern the behaviour of the environmental system can thus be understood through mathematical modelling, and their evolution can be studied by means of numerical simulation. The book contains a summary of various efficient approaches in atmospheric prediction, such as numerical weather prediction and statistical forecast of climate change, as well as other successful methods in land surface modelling. The authors explore new theories and methods in environment prediction such as systems analysis and information theory. Attention is given to new achievements in remote sensing tele-metering and geographic information systems.
