50 Reasons to Vote for Hillary Clinton , Hörbuc...

Everything you need to know when deciding who you want to be the next President of the United States. This piece endeavors to highlight Hillary Rodham-Clinton accomplishments and qualifications to be President of the United States. While her criticisms and scandals are not avoided, they are also not rehashed ad-nauseum. Furthermore, we explore her political philosophy which is rooted in the Machiavellian "realpolitik" school of politics. Whether one loves, loathes, or is indifferent about America's female political powerhouse, it cannot be denied that her list of qualifications and accomplishments to serve as the most powerful person on earth is an impressive one. Moreover, there are two brief lessons on the nature of Machiavellian political theory and the nature of fascism, the latter being a political platform not so subtly espoused by her opponent Donald Trump. Questions about her political morality are raised where appropriate; however, in turn, the Republican and media witch hunts against her and Bill Clinton are addressed as well. It is a clear, factual, and concise effort to push the undecided voter into Hillary's camp, as we also illustrate the danger presented by Trump's brand of neo-fascist con-artist politics. In the end, November is just around the corner and the fate of America and the planet for the next four years rides on who is sworn into the presidency in January 2017. 1. Language: English.

Billionaire CEO Zander Morgan hates to lose. To anyone. He also hates the fact that he is well-known for the architectural design app he created years ago and not for his more meaningful skills as an architect. This year, he is going to up the ante. The Architectural Award only comes out every three years and this year nothing is going to stop him from putting his name on it. With the designs he has for The Rink, he’s sure the award will be his...so long as he can keep his sexy little poker-playing opponent to stop her petition. Jade Devereaux loves her job as a landmark preservationist. Preserving history is important for all generations - if only she could get her landlord to agree. Receiving notice that The Rink is going through a large overhaul, she comes up with a plan to stop renovations. It is, after all, the same building her parents got engaged in 40-some years ago. It is a place where her mere existence was created. Jade already lost her mother and with her dad now dying too, Jade is more determined than ever to do anything to honor her parents' love story. Learning that the tall, dark, and handsome man she plays poker with is the same man who is going to renovate the building gives Jade a run for her money. Already having a crush on Zander - he’s definitely a five-card stud - and finding out he’s the one that has plans to destroy part of the building, has Jade going all in. Will her attempts to stop construction push Zander to fold? Or is it possible that by saving her parents' love story, she's also making her own? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Melissa Schwairy.

In his riveting new book, The Art of Learning, Waitzkin tells his remarkable story of personal achievement and shares the principles of learning and performance that have propelled him to the top-twice.Josh Waitzkin knows what it means to be at the top of his game. A public figure since winning his first National Chess Championship at the age of nine, Waitzkin was catapulted into a media whirlwind as a teenager when his father's book Searching for Bobby Fischer was made into a major motion picture. After dominating the scholastic chess world for ten years, Waitzkin expanded his horizons, taking on the martial art Tai Chi Chuan and ultimately earning the title of World Champion. How was he able to reach the pinnacle of two disciplines that on the surface seem so different? "I've come to realize that what I am best at is not Tai Chi, and it is not chess," he says. "What I am best at is the art of learning."With a narrative that combines heart-stopping martial arts wars and tense chess face-offs with life lessons that speak to all of us, The Art of Learning takes readers through Waitzkin's unique journey to excellence. He explains in clear detail how a well-thought-out, principled approach to learning is what separates success from failure. Waitzkin believes that achievement, even at the championship level, is a function of a lifestyle that fuels a creative, resilient growth process. Rather than focusing on climactic wins, Waitzkin reveals the inner workings of his everyday method, from systematically triggering intuitive breakthroughs, to honing techniques into states of remarkable potency, to mastering the art of performance psychology.Through his own example, Waitzkin explains how to embrace defeat and make mistakes work for you. Does your opponent make you angry? Waitzkin describes how to channel emotions into creative fuel. As he explains it, obstacles are not obstacles but challenges to overcome, to spur the growth process by turning weaknesses into strengths. He illustrates the exact routines that he has used in all of his competitions, whether mental or physical, so that you too can achieve your peak performance zone in any competitive or professional circumstance.In stories ranging from his early years taking on chess hustlers as a seven year old in New York City's Washington Square Park, to dealing with the pressures of having a film made about his life, to International Chess Championships in India, Hungary, and Brazil, to gripping battles against powerhouse fighters in Taiwan in the Push Hands World Championships, The Art of Learning encapsulates an extraordinary competitor's life lessons in a page-turning narrative.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The United States presidential election of 1936 was the most lopsided presidential election in the history of the United States in terms of electoral votes. In terms of the popular vote, it was the third biggest victory since the election of 1820, which was not seriously contested. The election took place as the Great Depression entered its eighth year. Incumbent President Franklin D. Roosevelt was still working to push the provisions of his New Deal economic policy through Congress and the courts. However, the New Deal policies he had already enacted, such as Social Security and unemployment benefits, had proven to be highly popular with most Americans. Roosevelt''s Republican opponent was Governor Alf Landon of Kansas, a political moderate.

All holds are taken upon the other wrestler's jacket, grabbing of the wrists or fingers is forbidden as well as any holding below the waist.

Rugby Union in Uganda
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Rugby union has been played in Uganda since colonial times when it was introduced by the British. A notable fan of all Ugandan sports, the dictator Idi Amin had been very athletic in his time in the army. At 193 cm (6 ft 4 in) tall, he was the Ugandan light heavyweight boxing champion from 1951 to 1960, and also a swimmer and rugby player. He played rugby initially with the Nile R.F.C. and later for the Kobs R.F.C. in Kampala. Amin also said in one of his speeches, "As you know I am a rugby player. I am second row, so I know how to push. I am very big. You don''t want to push against me. And I also play wing three-quarter and I am very fast. I can run one hundred meters in nine point five seconds (applause). If you tackle me, you will try, and you will hurt only yourself. So to everyone who is a boxer, I say this, do what you have to do to knock out your opponent."

Autonomous Sumo Robot

An autonomous sumo robot is able to have a match with another sumo robot, where it is supposed to automatically defend any attack performed by the opponent and trying to push the opponent out of the arena. The developed robot is expected to participate in Singapore Robotic Games 2009, an annual competition for robots from all over Singapore.There are three main stages in the design and development process of the sumo robot. The first stage is the concept and detailed design development. The second stage is the fabrication stage. Then, the final stage is to test the sumo robot and do necessary improvements to make sure that it can perform the intended tasks well.Based on the author s observation on the existing sumo robots, there are two types of them. They are high-speed type and high-torque type.Since this project has limited resources, the author decided to build a hybrid sumo robot, where the motor and processor quality are not that critical. The concept is to build a robot with moderate-speed movement so that it could avoid opponent s attacks and do counter-attacks from the weak sides of the opponent.
