Saddling Up Anyway ~ The Dangerous Lives of Old-Time Cowboys

Saddling Up Anyway: The Dangerous Lives of Old-Time Cowboys

Saddling Up Anyway: The Dangerous Lives of Old-Time Cowboys by Patrick Dearen
English | October 5th, 2012 | ASIN: B009D1GCZY, ISBN: 1589792238, 1493032976 | 192 pages | EPUB | 2.33 MB
Every time a cowhand dug his boot into the stirrup, he knew that this ride could carry him to trail’s end. In real stories told by genuine cowboys, this book captures the everyday perils of the flinty hoofs and devil horns of an outlaw steer, the crush of a half-ton of fury in the guise of a saddle horse, the snap of a rope pulled taut enough to sever digits. Threats took many forms, all of them sudden, most inescapable–a whooshing arrow or exploding slug, a raging river ready to drag him to the depths, and lightning that rattled bones and deafened if it missed, or came with silent finality if it didn’t.
Whether destined to be remembered or forgotten, a cowhand clung to life with all the zeal with which he approached his trade. He was the most loyal of employees, repeatedly putting his neck on the line for a mere dollar a day. Patrick Dearen has brought these reckless and risky adventures to life with colorful stories from interviews with 76 men who cowboyed in the West before 1932 as well as 150 archival interviews and written accounts from as early as the 1870s and well into the mid-twentieth century.

REACH Beyond Borders ~ Europeanization Towards Global Regulation

REACH Beyond Borders: Europeanization Towards Global Regulation

REACH Beyond Borders: Europeanization Towards Global Regulation by Ondrej Filipec
English | 2017 | ISBN: 3319541536 | 137 Pages | PDF | 4.2 MB
This book discusses how much other countries reflect the EU chemical regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, Restriction of Chemicals), in the context of Europeanization theory. The main hypothesis verified in this book is that more trade with the EU means more Europeanization (as the non-EU companies exporting to the EU have an obligation to comply with EU rules according to the No data, No Market REACH provision).
This book further points out that non-EU companies voluntarily adopt EU standards while this change has yet to be reflected on the policy level in non-EU countries, mainly for economic reasons.
Exploring changes in national chemical regulatory policies among top chemical producers around the World brings new ideas into the process of Europeanization behind EU borders and provides useful material for academia, regulatory experts and export oriented chemical industry.

Raising Blaze ~ A Mother and Son's Long, Strange Journey into Autism

Raising Blaze: A Mother and Son's Long, Strange Journey into Autism

Raising Blaze: A Mother and Son’s Long, Strange Journey into Autism by Debra Ginsberg
English | October 13th, 2009 | ASIN: B000QCQ9R0, ISBN: 0060004320, 0060004339 | 316 pages | EPUB | 0.45 MB
When you have a child that doesn’t fit in, what do you do Debra Ginsberg knew that her son, Blaze, was unique from the moment he was born in 1987. What she didn’t know was that Blaze’s differences would be regarded by the outside world not as gifts, but as impediments to social and academic success. Blaze never crawled. He just got up and walked when he turned one. He called his mother ‘Zsa Zsa’ until he was three.
By kindergarten, he loved the music of Miles Davis and Ella Fitzgerald. He fears butterflies and is fascinated by garbage trucks. With the same honesty that made Waiting a success, Raising Blaze: Bringing Up an Extraordinary Son in an Ordinary World chronicles Debra’s experience in raising a child who has defied definition by the host of professionals who have sought to label his differences. Ginsberg introduces us to a remarkable child and her own unusual childhood. She writes about a family which shows us the redemptive power of faith, humour and love.

Quantitative Historical Linguistics: A Corpus Framework (Oxford Studies in Diachronic and Historical Linguistics)

Quantitative Historical Linguistics: A Corpus Framework (Oxford Studies in Diachronic and Historical Linguistics) by Gard B. Jenset, Barbara McGillivray
English | December 5th, 2017 | ISBN: 0198718179, 9780198718178 | 247 pages | True PDF | 5.30 MB
This book is an innovative guide to quantitative, corpus-based research in historical and diachronic linguistics. Gard B. Jenset and Barbara McGillivray argue that, although historical linguistics has been successful in using the comparative method, the field lags behind other branches of linguistics with respect to adopting quantitative methods.
Here they provide a theoretically agnostic description of a new framework for quantitatively assessing models and hypotheses in historical linguistics, based on corpus data and using case studies to illustrate how this framework can answer research questions in historical linguistics. The authors offer an in-depth explanation and discussion of the benefits of working with quantitative methods, corpus data, and corpus annotation, and the advantages of open and reproducible research. The book will be a valuable resource for graduate students and researchers in historical linguistics, as well as for all those working with linguistic corpora.
