  1. One of the funniest, most beloved, and most often quoted entertainers in the world tells his tale of Life and Golf—and of somehow surviving both.With his brilliant creation, groundskeeper Carl Spackler, and the outrageous success of the film "Caddyshack" firmly etched into the American consciousness, Bill Murray and golf have become synonymous. Filled with Murray's trademark deadpan and dead-on humor, Cinderella Story chronicles his love affair with golf from the life lessons he learned as a caddy—"how to smoke, curse, play cards. But more important, when to"—to his escapades on the Pro-Am golf circuit at the Augusta National and as a fan at the Masters, the U.S. Open, and the Western Open. An up-by-the-bootstraps tale of a man, his muse, and our society's fascination with a little white ball, Cinderella Story is one pilgrim's bemused path through the doglegs.

  2. If he were alive this year, Australian golfing legend Norman von Nida would have celebrated his 100th birthday on St Valentine's Day. Sadly, Queensland lost one of its favourite sporting sons several years ago, aged 93, when he died peacefully in his sleep. The Von never did fancy breaking 100. In celebration of his life, this limited special edition has been released to coincide with the unveiling of The Von bronze statue at Nudgee Golf Club in Brisbane. The Von learnt the game as a caddy at Royal Queensland Golf Club during the Depression years, yet few people know that his career was kick-started at Nudgee using clubs bought for him by the then club champion, Tom Mullins. A chance meeting between the two on a rainy day would change the face of golf in this country forever. While the Von's subsequent achievements as a player were awe-inspiring, with 80-odd professional titles in Australia, Great Britain and Asia, it was his generous spirit and determination to give back to the game he loved that are still revered today.The Von Bronze project, funded by ordinary club golfers and superstars of the game alike, such as Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Peter Thomson, Greg Norman, Wayne Grady, Jack Newton and Sir Nick Faldo, will stand in Nudgee's clubhouse. Much like this book it is a lasting tribute to a man whose life reads like the pages of a Hollywood movie script: an abattoir worker from the wrong side of the tracks who would one day take on and beat the world's best golfers while making friends with battlers, kings and billionaires alike. Jack Nicklaus considered The Von his 'unique and remarkable friend'. Gary Player lauds him 'as one of the first great Australian golfers' and Peter Thomson reflects: 'to be with him was an uncommon experience'. Norman von Nida was hale, hearty, 85 years young and still playing golf each week when he recalled a lifetime of friendships and memories that made him 'the wealthiest man

  5. Black Elk of the Sioux has been recognized as one of the truly remarkable men of his time in the matter of religious belief and practice. Shortly before his death in August, 1950, when he was the "keeper of the sacred pipe," he said, "It is my prayer that, through our sacred pipe, and through this book in which I shall explain what our pipe really is, peace may come to those peoples who can understand, and understanding which must be of the heart and not of the head alone. Then they will realize that we Indians know the One true God, and that we pray to Him continually."Black Elk was the only qualified priest of the older Oglala Sioux still living when "The Sacred Pipe "was written. This is his book: he gave it orally to Joseph Epes Brown during the latter's eight month's residence on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where Black Elk lived. Beginning with the story of White Buffalo Cow Woman's first visit to the Sioux to give them the sacred pip, Black Elk describes and discusses the details and meanings of the seven rites, which were disclosed, one by one, to the Sioux through visions. He takes the reader through the sun dance, the purification rite, the "keeping of the soul," and other rites, showing how the Sioux have come to terms with God and nature and their fellow men through a rare spirit of sacrifice and determination.The "wakan "Mysteries of the Siouan peoples have been a subject of interest and study by explorers and scholars from the period of earliest contact between whites and Indians in North America, but Black Elk's account is without doubt the most highly developed on this religion and cosmography. "The Sacred Pipe, "published as volume thirty-six in the Civilization of the American Indian Series, will be greeted enthusiastically by students of comparative religion, ethnologists, historians, philosophers, and everyone interested in American Indian life.

  13. A runaway train is racing toward five men who are tied to the track. Unless the train is stopped, it will inevitably kill all five men. You are standing on a footbridge looking down on the unfolding disaster. However, a fat man, a stranger, is standing next to you: if you push him off the bridge, he will topple onto the line and, although he will die, his chunky body will stop the train, saving five lives. Would you kill the fat man? The question may seem bizarre. But it's one variation of a puzzle that has baffled moral philosophers for almost half a century and that more recently has come to preoccupy neuroscientists, psychologists, and other thinkers as well. In this book, David Edmonds, coauthor of the best-selling Wittgenstein's Poker, tells the riveting story of why and how philosophers have struggled with this ethical dilemma, sometimes called the trolley problem. In the process, he provides an entertaining and informative tour through the history of moral philosophy. Most people feel it's wrong to kill the fat man. But why? After all, in taking one life you could save five. As Edmonds shows, answering the question is far more complex–and important–than it first appears.In fact, how we answer it tells us a great deal about right and wrong.

  14. A runaway trolley is hurtling down the track, brakes gone, aiming directly at five track workers who won't be able to get out of the way. You happen to be standing next to a lever that would reroute the trolley onto a spur where one worker is in the trolley's path. Would you pull the lever and reroute the train so it kills one person instead of five? How about this scenario: same runaway trolley, same five people in its path but this time there's no spur. You're observing the action from a footbridge over the tracks. The only way to stop the tram is to put a heavy weight in its path. A very large man happens to be standing next to you - do you push him onto the track in order to save the five workers? The Trolley Problem is an ethical thought experiment dreamed up in 1967 by British philosopher Philippa Foot, and further developed by American thinker Judith Jarvis Thomson in the '70s (she added the big man on the bridge).Since then, philosophers and thinkers have devised a variety of iterations of the problem, each adding its own twist on the moral dilemma, and The Runaway Trolley explores these through the lens of a trial in the court of public opinion - readers are members of the jury. Cathcart presents two opposing philosophical takes on the problem through the lawyers closing statements, but also offers up several alternative outlooks on related conundrums through a variety of other media - newspaper editorials, blogs, a police report, a debate, and overheard conversations.

  17. The Toledo interurbans last ran in December 1949. The interurbans were a great loss to a city that was a major transportation hub in its own right. They would be replaced by buses, but nothing could replace the feeling of riding a trolley to work or taking the family to a movie by trolley. Today there is very little that remains of the interurban lines. Sometimes the old rails are visible when street repairs are being made. Toledo Trolleys was written to preserve the rich history of the trolleys that served citizens faithfully for many years.
