Read and Download Bill James book Solid Fool's Gold in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TSolid Fool's Gold. This book was released on 2011-03-15 with total page 224 pages. Book excerpt: Since he first began publishing his Baseball Abstracts in the 1980s, Bill James has constantly challenged conventional wisdom by asking simple questions like, "Is that really true?" or "What if we looked at the question this way?" He has sparked a virtual revolution in the way the game of baseball is understood and played, from how players are evaluated or positioned to whether or not they should attempt to bunt or steal a base. In Solid Fool s Gold James continues his lifelong work with new analyses of: Hot pitchers, clutch pitching, and "late career" players The predictability of RBI A better way to organize the minor leagues The 33 best starting rotations and the worst teams of all time The best pitching matchups of the 1980s (and 2010) How the "Expansion Time Bomb" will affect the Hall of Fame But it is not just baseball that draws James inquisitive eye. He discusses the growing expectation for tips and decreasing effectiveness of advertising; his new method for measuring rainfall; the counterproductive use of physical stop lights and red-light cameras; and the statistical inefficiencies of the federal Transportion Security Administration. James wonders how Buck O Neil would have related to his ancestor s cousin (Supreme Court Justice James Clark McReynolds), proposes whimsical rules for Olympic NASCAR Racing, and poeticizes about Ricky Weeks and WikiLeaks. He compares the chances of a particular-size town producing a Justin Verlander or a William Shakespeare, imagines Roger Maris apologizing in heaven for having beaten Babe Ruth s single-season home run record, and explains how to "battle expertise with the power of ignorance." As a bonus, he includes one of his seminal articles from The Bill James Baseball Abstract 1983 titled "The Law of Competitive Advantage" and looks at how it has held up over the intervening years.
Read and Download David Robb book Clowns, Fools and Picaros in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TClowns, Fools and Picaros. This book was released on 2007-01 with total page 233 pages. Book excerpt: By its very nature the clown, as represented in art, is an interdisciplinary phenomenon. In whichever artform it appears – fiction, drama, film, photography or fine art – it carries the symbolic association of its usage in popular culture, be it ritual festivities, street theatre or circus. The clown, like its extended family of fools, jesters, picaros and tricksters, has a variety of functions all focussed around its status and image of being “other.” Frequently a marginalized figure, it provides the foil for the shortcomings of dominant discourse or the absurdities of human behaviour.Clowns, Fools and Picaros represents the latest research on the clown, bringing together for the first time studies from four continents: Europe, America, Africa and Asia. It attempts to ascertain commonalities, overlaps and differences between artistic expressions of the “clownesque” from these various continents and genres, and above all, to examine the role of the clown in our cultures today.This volume is of interest for scholars of political and comic drama, film and visual art as well as scholars of comparative literature and anthropology.

Read and Download Dr. Ron Cubit book Fool's Hill in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TFool's Hill. This book was released on 2019-11-22 with total page 296 pages. Book excerpt: This book expresses the challenges the author faced in life while attempting to fit into constantly changing environments. Throughout the book, the author explains the transitions involving his fool's hill-a concept presented to him by his grandmother. Early in life, the author experienced changing life situations, and he desired to be accepted, which led to mischievousness then gravitated to crime and other rebellious acts. As a high school dropout, the author volunteered to serve in the United States Marine Corps, and after enlistment, struggles continued. After earning his high school diploma, discharge from the military, and the birth of his son, the author decided to turn his life around but struggled making the transition. During employment challenges and several money-making ventures, the author earns two associate's degrees, a bachelor's of science, a master's degree, and eventually, a doctorate in education degree from Pepperdine University. Haphazardly, he finds employment that helps troubled individuals, and from communicating the challenges he faced, assisted others in finding their way. Behold, the author discovers and finds his "Why" as stated in the quote by Mark Twain. Nevertheless, after facing personal challenges including divorce, he detaches from family and finds his love for the outdoors, especially backpacking, which many African Americans don't partake. Several challenging escapades in the wilderness he explains humorously. Eventually, the author reconnects with family. This book differs from others because it describes the challenges an African American male, who isn't a celebrity, faces while transitioning from a troubled inner-city life to one that helps others succeed. Included in the book is much history about the civil rights era and beyond. Many situations explained with a comedic twist.

Read and Download T. A. Richards II book A Fool's Babel in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TA Fool's Babel. This book was released on 2015-07-16 with total page 334 pages. Book excerpt: Have you ever heard the expression, ‘If I told you, I would have to kill you?’ Most of the time it is said as a joke and used to spread merriment and good cheer. No one takes it seriously and usually people just laugh it off. In my case however, there would be no laughing but there certainly would be killing. But it wouldn’t be me that did the killing; it would be the government. We all know that the government has secrets and we all know that they would do whatever was necessary to keep those secrets. They would kill you in your sleep or while you were driving your car and make it look like an accident. They would even invade a sovereign nation and execute an ‘evil’ dictator. History and even current events can testify to the lengths our government would go to keep and protect their secrets. What if some of the secrets involved an ancient virus that our government wanted to use as a bioweapon? You know as well as I do that nothing would stop them from keeping that information out of the news stream. What if I told you that the government took it even further and tried to ‘enhance’ the virus? It’s completely believable, isn’t it? But what would happen if the virus mutated and completely changed the host into a ferocious killing machine? This sounds like something our government could use against its war of terror, doesn’t it? Without giving you a lot of details I can tell you that this type research is not new to our government. For decades they’ve been conducting research in hidden facilities all over the world. I’ve been on more than one mission to ‘clean up’ the mess made when the research gets out of hand. This story however, is beyond the scope of anything I had ever encountered before. The destruction I saw was almost unbelievable and the creatures I fought seemed more supernatural than natural.
Read and Download Elizabeth-Anne Stewart book Jesus the Holy Fool in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TJesus the Holy Fool. This book was released on 1999 with total page 298 pages. Book excerpt: Richly written, Jesus the Holy Fool combines diverse images from religious traditions, world literature, Jungian archetype, and Scripture. Weaving the best theology and spirituality, Jesus the Holy Fool is a fresh and inviting Christology. The Scriptures tell us that religious leaders thought Jesus was possessed, and his own family thought he was crazy. In his open table fellowship, choice of followers, radical passion, and his death and resurrection, Jesus was willing to appear as a fool for the sake of God's reign. His teachings--especially the parables, paradoxes, and the beatitudes--advocate a way of life that is grounded in Holy Foolishness. Through an archetypal examination of the fool motif as it applies to Jesus in the Gospels, Jesus the Holy Fool develops the connections between holiness and folly. Offering new insights into Christology and exploring its practical pastoral ramifications, Jesus the Holy Fool presents Holy Foolishness as a paradigm for the Christian journey and as a new model of what it means for us to be church.
