A serial attacker is locked up, and his murderous accomplice has been gunned down. But the true mastermind behind their lethal reign of terror still hasn't been taken in or taken down, so the harrowing case of the Cornbelt Killers isn't closed - and one murderous woman is determined to keep it that way. The only thing more important to her than evading capture is hunting down her hit list of enemies, topped by Iowa's Division of Criminal Investigation agent Cam Prescott and forensic psychologist Sophia Channing. Faced with an opponent both quick witted and cold blooded, Cam and Sophia must scramble to keep up with this horrifying new threat. Little do they realize that in this game of cat and mouse, they're lambs being led to the slaughter. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Zane.

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.

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.

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.

Guillotine Choke

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.
