Thursday Night Lights: The Story of Black High ...

At a time when "Friday night lights" shone only on white high school football games, African American teams across Texas burned up the gridiron on Wednesday and Thursday nights. The segregated high schools in the Prairie View Interscholastic League (the African American counterpart of the University Interscholastic League, which excluded black schools from membership until 1967) created an exciting brand of football that produced hundreds of outstanding players, many of whom became college All-Americans, All-Pros, and Pro Football Hall of Famers, including NFL greats such as "Mean" Joe Green (Temple Dunbar), Otis Taylor (Houston Worthing), Dick "Night Train" Lane (Austin Anderson), Ken Houston (Lufkin Dunbar), and Bubba Smith (Beaumont Charlton-Pollard).  Thursday Night Lights tells the inspiring, largely unknown story of African American high school football in Texas. Drawing on interviews, newspaper stories, and memorabilia, Michael Hurd introduces the players, coaches, schools, and towns where African Americans built powerhouse football programs under the PVIL leadership. He covers 50 years (1920-1970) of high school football history, including championship seasons and legendary rivalries such as the annual Turkey Day Classic game between Houston schools Jack Yates and Phillis Wheatley, which drew standing-room-only crowds of up to 40,000, making it the largest prep sports event in postwar America. In telling this story, Hurd explains why the PVIL was necessary, traces its development, and shows how football offered a potent source of pride and ambition in the black community, helping black kids succeed both athletically and educationally in a racist society.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.  1.

1st Year Essentials: A Simple DIY Guide for New...

I wrote this guidebook of essentials, for new entrepreneurs to essentially cut through the vast world of information that seems to exist on the internet. The spirit of this audiobook is to be helpful and share things that I know from real world experience. I don't want you to fail in your first year. I don't want you to fail any year, but especially the first. It is such a hard heartbreak to get over. The first year is when your excitement and drive is at its peak, and it should also be the time that you setup a workflow that actually helps you stay ahead of the game. That is what this Do-It-Yourself guidebook will help you do, in a very no-nonsense, straightforward kind of way, unlike a University approved entrepreneurship and small business development textbook. This audiobook is meant to be functional and based on years and years of experience operating small businesses and assisting entrepreneurs in the real world - the everyday, nitty-gritty stuff that keeps us compliant and able to see a growing bottom line through do-it-yourself means. Also, the fact that I have helped many other small business owners who were overwhelmed get caught up with their books, tax reporting and corporate paperwork and helped them have a streamlined workflow that is compliant for their industry makes me know that this will work for you. But only if you do what is recommended. Implement the suggestions, email me and ask questions, bring your business just one level up from where it is now and see the profitable difference and the time and stress it will save you to do this stuff. You will be glad you did. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jackson Whitt. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/010680/bk_acx0_010680_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The iPhone and iPod touch have provided all software developers with a level playing field—developers working alone have the same access to consumers as multinational software publishers. Very cool indeed! To make your application stand out from the crowd, though, it has to have that something extra. You must learn the skills to take your apps from being App Store filler to download chart-topping blockbusters. Developers with years of experience helped write this book. Spend some time understanding their code and why they took the approach they did. You will find the writing, illustrations, code, and sample applications second to none. No matter what type of application you are writing, you will find something in this book to help you make your app that little bit cooler. The book opens with Wolfgang Ante, the developer behind the Frenzic puzzle game, showing how timers, animation, and intelligence are used to make game play engaging. It moves on to Rogue Amoeba's Mike Ash explaining how to design a network protocol using UDP, and demonstrating its use in a peer-to-peer application—a topic not normally for the faint of heart, but explained here in a way that makes sense to mere mortals. Gary Bennett then covers the important task of multithreading. Multithreading can be used to keep the user interface responsive while working on other tasks in the background. Gary demonstrates how to do this and highlights traps to avoid along the way. Next up, Canis Lupus (aka Matthew Rosenfeld) describes the development of the Keynote-controlling application Stage Hand, how the user interface has evolved, and the lessons he has learned from that experience. Benjamin Jackson then introduces two open source libraries: cocos2d, for 2D gaming, and Chipmunk, for rigid body physics (think “collisions”). He describes the development of Arcade Hockey, an air hockey game, and explains some of the code used for this. Neil Mix of Pandora Radio reveals the science behind processing streaming audio. How do you debug what you can't see? Neil guides you through the toughest challenges, sharing his experience of what works and what to watch out for when working with audio. Finally, Steven Peterson demonstrates a comprehensive integration of iPhone technologies. He weaves Core Location, networking, XML, XPath, and SQLite into a solid and very useful application. Software development can be hard work. Introductory books lay the foundation, but it can be challenging to understand where to go next. This book shows some of the pieces that can be brought together to make complete, cool applications. What you’ll learn - Add multitouch controls to your applications. - Detect motion for spatial application interaction. - Build applications that use both wi-fi and cellular connections. - Understand and use GPS information for geo-location. - Use the built-in microphone and play sounds and alerts. - Optimize your use of limited screen real estate. Who this book is for All iPhone application developers with any level of experience or coming from any development platform

The Great Game of Politics
7,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From our nation's inception there has been a constant dynamic of tension between those political philosophies that we have labeled the left and the right, despite the fact that the vast majority of American voters really fall into the category of moderates. During the early years, the shifts between the two were dramatic and frequent: the Federalists on one side, the Jeffersonians on the other, as the young democracy came to grips with the two opposing political forces that were to mold the new nation. On one hand we have the concerned with business, conservatism, and the development of capital and wealth. They want the government to provide security that will protect the nation's interest while allowing free-market forces to increase prosperity. On the other hand we have the left, concerned with personal rights, equality, and the fostering of prosperity for all citizens through an active and involved federal government. By explicating the Presidency from George Washington to George W. Bush, The Great Game of Politics examines the American Presidency as a cyclic reflection of the concerns of the electorate vis à vis the excitation of the ideologies of our two major parties in a constant left-right swing where the will of the people sets the pendulum in motion and determines the direction the country will take for another four years. From the early years, where the dynamic tension that forged the nation initially required numerous shifts to establish an acceptable political equilibrium, to the revered legacies of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan, whose presidencies not only initiated major political shifts but also instituted fundamental changes in the apparatus of government that would prove to be integral to the administrations that followed them, both Democratic and Republican. They seized the reins of government and made a lasting mark. Indeed the truly great presidents¿Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, Lincoln, Theodore and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Reagan¿shaped the course of history for our nation and in doing so proved themselves to be masters of The Great Game of Politics.
