From Graham Moore, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Imitation Game and New York Times best-selling author of The Sherlockian, comes a thrilling novel - based on actual events - about the nature of genius, the cost of ambition, and the battle to electrify America. New York, 1888. Gas lamps still flicker in the city streets, but the miracle of electric light is in its infancy. The person who controls the means to turn night into day will make history - and a vast fortune. A young untested lawyer named Paul Cravath, fresh out of Columbia Law School, takes a case that seems impossible to win. Paul's client, George Westinghouse, has been sued by Thomas Edison over a billion-dollar question: Who invented the lightbulb and holds the right to power the country? The case affords Paul entry to the heady world of high society - the glittering parties in Gramercy Park mansions and the more insidious dealings done behind closed doors. The task facing him is beyond daunting. Edison is a wily, dangerous opponent with vast resources at his disposal - private spies, newspapers in his pocket, and the backing of J. P. Morgan himself. Yet this unknown lawyer shares with his famous adversary a compulsion to win at all costs. How will he do it? In obsessive pursuit of victory, Paul crosses paths with Nikola Tesla, an eccentric, brilliant inventor who may hold the key to defeating Edison, and with Agnes Huntington, a beautiful opera singer who proves to be a flawless performer onstage and off. As Paul takes greater and greater risks, he'll find that all in his path are playing their own games, and none are quite who they seem. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Johnathan McClain.

Guillotine Choke
34,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The guillotine choke is a chokehold in martial arts and wrestling applied from in front of the opponent. The choke involves using the arms to encircle the opponent's neck in a fashion similar to a guillotine. The technique is either a type of tracheal compression restraint (wind choke) that prevents air flow to the lungs, or a blood choke depending on how it is applied. When executed from the ground, the person applying it will try to control the opponent by the hips, for instance using a closed guard. This is done to prevent the opponent from escaping the hold, and to be able to apply additional pressure by extending the hips. It's a very effective maneuver when performed correctly.

Beyond Friends and Enemies?

The book explores the politics and antagonisms of Irish nationalism in the 20th century from the struggle for independence and the consolidation of statehood, through 30 years of violence to the low intensity peace brokered by 1998 Good Friday Agreement. The book examines the enduring tension within mainstream nationalism between the irredentist rhetoric of nationhood and the practical politics of governing a 26-county state. It traces the challenges posed by those who went beyond the rhetoric, and deployed violence to undo this consensus. With the irruption of the 'Troubles' from 1968 there emerged a stark contrast between nationalisms north and south. Nationalism in Northern Ireland remained quite distinct from its counterpart in the South, the product of conflict within a separate entity. The Peace Proces that closed the turbulent century has not banished the antagonistic dimension of the political, but has put in place durable institutions to defuse violent antagonisms so that the adversary might no longer be seen as an enemy but recognised as a legitimate opponent.

An Empirical Comparison of Competitive State An...

Performance based on open skills may be more influenced by anxiety and self-confidence than performance based on closed skills. An open skill can involve either an individual or team sport with the athlete per- forming in an interactive and ever-changing environment (basketball, tennis). A closed skill is performed in a more stable environment that is relatively predictable and often self-paced (i.e., golf, gymnastics, crew teams). Anxiety may have a different impact on performance on these two types of skills, based on how the influence of the environment and other competitors potentially moderate the anxiety/performance relationship. Evidence from the literature on precompetitive mood and performance suggests that the more an athlete interacts with an opponent, the more likely the opponent's actions or performance will exert an influence on the relationship be- tween mood and performance. As there is more contact with the opponent in open skill sports, therefore one could predict that anxiety would have a more detrimental effect on performance in open skill sports than in closed skill sports, due to the greater interaction with opponents and less control over the environment.

The Cavalier Club
45,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The year is 1618 and the beginning of the brutal Thirty Years' War. Lieutenant Jack Channing's life is about to be immutably altered by two events. He falls in love with a beautiful countess and witnesses an attempt on the Polish King Sigismund's life. News reaches the court that assassination attempts on Catholic monarchs have occurred elsewhere in Europe and Jack is charged with the responsibility of finding and crushing the perpetrators - murderers that became known as the Green-Scarf Fraternity. Mixing real historical events with fictional retelling, The Cavalier Club is a richly detailed, impeccably researched story of adventure, bravery and love set during one of Europe's longest and most destructive conflicts. As the shadowy figures advanced, Jack brandished his rapier and stepped forward, away from his mount. The two cavaliers moved cautiously towards him, separated by the fountain ... As the distance closed between them, he feinted with rapid, circular sweeps, pushing the dark figure back. His faceless opponent withdrew his dagger and lunged with his sword. Jack turned the blade aside with an open, gloved palm and countered, his thrust diverted by the man's dagger. They took a step back from each other and slowly circled a few cautious steps. Avoiding his adversary's jab, Jack countered with an immediate plunge, stabbing at the shoulder ... Jack briefly glanced at the wounded swordsman; there was no movement.
