By Linda Mornell

ISBN 9781629370224

Published Mar 2015

In 1990, with no experience in the nonprofit sector, psychiatric nurse Linda Mornell started Summer Search, a program commited to creating one of the few opportunities in the country where adolescents from all economic backgrounds are given the chance to work and live together for an extended period of weeks or months in summer experiential education programs. Most programs like this are expensive and not available to low-income youth. Seeing an opportunity to change that, Mornell began Summer Search in San Francisco with 14 students and a budget of $30,000. Her passion and desire to change the path for these 14 students has blossomed into an even larger impact today—to give the life-changing experience to more than 2,200 students in the Bay Area, Boston, New York City, Seattle, and Philadelphia annually. Forever Changed documents the importance of adolescents from all economic groups being able to attend the same summer programs that adolescents from more privileged backgrounds have found so beneficial. It includes compelling stories of Summer Search students who each faced specific challenges, such as learning disabilities and behavioral problems. In the book, Mornell persuasively argues how summer experiential education programs can aid in the growing need for adolescents to find their own voice and embark on a path of success.

The Ultraman Triathlon, one of the most remarkable endurance races in the world, is a three-day, 320-mile race that circumnavigates the Big Island of Hawaii. With only 40 competitors allowed in each year, this invitation-only event hosts some of the most superlative athletes on the planet. The Race Within discusses the 30-year history of the sport and race director Jane Bockus, former Pan Am flight attendant who has never done a triathlon, yet has dedicated herself to keeping the event true to its founding spirit for decades. This book follows Jane, her assistants, and a small cast of athletes through an entire year—from the end of the 2012 Ultraman to the 2013 event—and shows how they faced new challenges to the growth and well-being of the event, and were forced to question if old traditions could survive in a world of constantly-evolving sports entertainment. Granted full access to the race and the athletes, author Jim Gourley presents a look at this unique event and examines what it means to truly love sports.

This manual includes a comprehensive breakdown of each and every Redstone-related item and how it works, as well as a guide to wiring and engineering that's so precise, those who use it will have a basic working knowledge of actual, real-life electrical wiring.

Published Jan 2015

The industry's longest-running publication for baseball analysts and fantasy leaguers, the 2014 Baseball Forecaster, published annually since 1986, is the first book to approach prognostication by breaking performance down into its component parts. Rather than predicting batting average, for instance, this resource looks at the elements of skill that make up any given batter's ability to distinguish between balls and strikes, his propensity to make contact with the ball, and what happens when he makes contact—reverse engineering those skills back into batting average. The result is an unparalleled forecast of baseball abilities and trends for the upcoming season and beyond.
