Winter Roads: White Suburban (King of Obsolete Winter Roads Book 3)

This introduction is for the 10 books of my Winter Road Book series. Since my readers are worldwide as my Kingdom Followers, I will use the introduction to explain what winter roads are and how they came about. Canadian Winter Roads are very different from the Ice Roads made famous by the TV show called Ice Road Truckers which gave me my 15 seconds of fame. People have to remember that the TV show Ice Road Trucker is a form of entertainment like the Playboy Channel. Plus, the TV networks spent a lot of time and money to make the show a success around the world. I tip my hat to the TV network because I am still enjoying my 15 seconds of fame from all the marketing they have done. I will include a story on the filming we did but it will be more on the film crew and how they did their jobs in the cold Canadian winter. All other information or stories I will let the TV network tell those stories because they paid a lot of money to film and make the show.I will start my 1st book in the series; Winter Roads: My Struggles from 1996 through to 2007. Then continue with my 2nd book in the series; Winter Roads: Head Hanger from 2008 through to 2009. My 3rd book in the series; Winter Roads: White Suburban from 2010 through to 2011. My 4th book in the series; Winter Roads: Dream Team the year 2012. My 5th book in the series; Winter Roads: 15 Seconds of Fame the year 2013. My 6th book in the series; Winter Roads: Russian Roulette the year 2014. My 7th book in the series; Winter Roads: Never Give Up from 2015 through to 2016.

My Year Collecting Toys 2017

It’s not an addiction, it’s a passion. I love collecting toys. Okay, yeah, fine, maybe a little bit of an addiction. We’ll let you decide.Journey with me as we take a trip back to 2017. The year my beloved WWF Hasbro figures returned to the shelves as WWE Retros. The year Mega Construx added Masters Of The Universe to their line of mini figures. The year I bought a collection of the 2011 Thundercats and found a bag of He-Man figures at a thrift store in the mountains of New Hampshire.While traveling New England for my hiking guides, I stopped at every toy store, flea market and thrift store I came across. Not to mention my parents’ shed and attic, always good places for old treasures. And of course, good old eBay.The cover says it all, you know what we’re hunting down. This isn’t superheroes and Star Wars, I’m looking for those forgotten lines. And a few not so forgotten. We’re talking Dino-Riders and Super Naturals. Wrestling and MOTU. GI Joes, Turtles, the ninja kind, not the ones you have to brake for in the road, Transformers and even, ugh, I know people hate it but I’m gonna say it anyway, Go-Bots. And Thundercats, everyone loves them. Does that make up for it?It was a good year for toy hunting, but not nearly as good as the years that fell around it. Since this book’s a little short, we’re going to give it away for free, just pretend it’s one of those mini comics that came with 80’s action figures. But don’t let your kids read it, some of the humor may be a little inappropriate. They can enjoy the pictures though, just like I did with the actual mini comics that came with my figures when I was a kid.Let’s take a look at my year collecting toys in 2017.

Artistry in Bronze: The Greeks and Their Legacy XIXth International Congress on Ancient Bronzes

The papers in this volume derive from the proceedings of the nineteenth International Bronze Congress, held at the Getty Center and Villa in October 2015 in connection with the exhibition Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World. The study of large-scale ancient bronzes has long focused on aspects of technology and production. Analytical work of materials, processes, and techniques has significantly enriched our understanding of the medium. Most recently, the restoration history of bronzes has established itself as a distinct area of investigation. How does this scholarship bear on the understanding of bronzes within the wider history of ancient art? How do these technical data relate to our ideas of styles and development? How has the material itself affected ancient and modern perceptions of form, value, and status of works of art?  www.getty.edu/publications/artistryinbronze

Stamping American Memory: Collectors, Citizens, and the Post (Digital Humanities)

Winner of the University of Michigan Press / Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC) Prize for Notable Work in the Digital Humanities In the age of digital communications, it can be difficult to imagine a time when the meaning and imagery of stamps was politically volatile. While millions of Americans collected stamps from the 1880s to the 1940s, Stamping American Memory is the first scholarly examination of stamp collecting culture and how stamps enabled citizens to engage their federal government in conversations about national life in early-twentieth-century America. By examining the civic conversations that emerged around stamp subjects and imagery, this work brings to light the role that these under-examined historical artifacts have played in carrying political messages.Sheila A. Brennan crafts a fresh synthesis that explores how the US postal service shaped Americans’ concepts of national belonging, citizenship, and race through its commemorative stamp program. Designed to be saved as souvenirs, commemoratives circulated widely and stood as miniature memorials to carefully selected snapshots from the American past that also served the political needs of small interest groups. Stamping American Memory brings together the histories of the US postal service and the federal government, collecting, and philately through the lenses of material culture and memory to make a significant contribution to our understanding of this period in American history.

Examples of Chinese Ancient Architectural Ornament: with 5 days free out of each 90-day

In ancient China, in order to protect wooden buildings, it was necessary to paint the wood parts. By the time of the Warring States period, architectural painting had become a special architectural ornament art。 The Examples of Chinese Ancient Architectural Ornament was published in 1955, created by the Beijing cultural relics organizing committee. Refer to the modification of the architect Lin Huiyin,edited by Liu Xingmin and Wang Zhongjie, drawn by Liu Xingmin and Chen Lianrui according to the rules of architectural art after the Emperor Qianlong period..............................A Memory of Chinese History and ArtChinese traditional patterns are expressions of the living environment, thought and values of the ancient Chinese, and the themes are abundant, most of them are auspicious. It is widely used in classical drama costumes, decoration of architecture or instruments, it is an important part of Chinese culture. Chinese had been a long way to get the opportunity and study classical materials of the emperor.In 1860, the Anglo-French army invaded Beijing. They plundered the Yuanmingyuan, the largest art treasure of the Qing emperor, and finally burned it down.Since the war plunder was brought to Europe and sold by British and French soldiers, a large number of precious Chinese classical works of art have appeared in museums in France and Britain.The Empress' Chinese Museum housed at Fontainebleau palace was built in 1863 by Queen Eugenie of Napoleon III, is used to store and display cultural relics from the Yuanmingyuan. Most of the collections come from Yuanmingyuan.At the same time, Owen Jones, a British architect and designer, sorted out the patterns of Chinese relics in the South Kensington Museum and published Examples of Chinese Ornament in 1867.In 1900,When the Eight-Nation Alliance force invaded Beijing, the Qing emperor's art treasures were once again plundered to Europe.In the late Qing Dynasty, some people went to Europe to study. They were shocked by the splendor of Chinese classical artworks, because at that time the Chinese had no chance to study the art collection of the Qing Emperors.In 1912, the Qing Dynasty perished. As one of the conditions for peaceful takeover of all Chinese territory, Puyi, the last emperor of the Qing Dynasty, was allowed by the new government to continue living in the Forbidden City, the Imperial Palace. But in the autumn of 1924, suddenly a warlord Feng Yuxiang entered the palace with guns, drove Puyi out. At that time, the upper class all knew that the planners behind the incident were intellectuals who dreamed of studying cultural relics. The representatives were Li Shizeng , who had studied in France, and Cai Yuanpei, president of Peking University, who had studied in Germany and France.In order to avoid the aftermath, Li Shizeng even asked the warlord to kill the 18-year-old Puyi.In 1925, Li Shizeng renamed the Forbidden City as the Palace Museum, and from that time on, the Chinese finally became able to study rich classical cultural materials.In 1958, in the face of China's poverty and backwardness, Mao Zedong attempted to bring the economy up at one blow, ignoring the principles of the market, began the Great Leap Forward. Unexpectedly led to a famine in China.The lack of material will lead to the fear of the leaders. The most perfect way to stabilize the political power is to make the people's thoughts lack. The Cultural Revolution should be the result of such a vicious circle, which makes the research of Chinese classical culture ruined, and many historical materials were destroyed.Examples of Chinese Ancient Architectural Ornament published in 1954, before the Cultural Revolution.

The Book of Five Rings

Contains Active Table of Contents (HTML)  and include a bonus link to the free audio book.The Book of Five Rings ( 五輪書  Go Rin no Sho) is a text on kenjutsu and the martial arts in general, written by the Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi around 1645. There have been various translations made over the years, and it enjoys an audience considerably broader than only that of martial artists and people across East Asia: for instance, some foreign business leaders find its discussion of conflict and taking the advantage to be relevant to their work in a business context. The modern-day Hyōhō Niten Ichi-ryū employs it as a manual of technique and philosophy.Musashi establishes a "no-nonsense" theme throughout the text. For instance, he repeatedly remarks that technical flourishes are excessive, and contrasts worrying about such things with the principle that all technique is simply a method of cutting down one's opponent. He also continually makes the point that the understandings expressed in the book are important for combat on any scale, whether a one-on-one duel or a massive battle. Descriptions of principles are often followed by admonitions to "investigate this thoroughly" through practice rather than trying to learn them by merely reading.Musashi describes and advocates a two-sword fencing style (nitōjutsu): that is, wielding both katana and wakizashi, contrary to the more traditional method of wielding the katana two-handed. However, he only explicitly describes wielding two swords in a section on fighting against many adversaries. The stories of his many duels rarely refer to Musashi himself wielding two swords, although, since they are mostly oral traditions, their details may be inaccurate. Musashi states within the volume that one should train with a long sword in each hand, thereby training the body and improving one's ability to use two blades simultaneously(wikipedia)
