The Crew (Billy Evans)

The Crew is Dougie Brimson's first novel, following a series of books on the subject of football hooliganism written with his brother Eddy. Once again, the territory covered relates to the violence that surrounds football. This time, however, things aren't for real--still, the characters and story line seem real enough, especially for those familiar with any of the tales told in the author's factual volumes. Marrying the football violence theme with a well-established genre, Brimson turns his tale into a thriller. Using the master hooligan and the police detective as counterpoints, he weaves a believable and gripping story line, truly guaranteed to keep the pages turning. With the villain of the piece painted black from the word go, the chase is always on. What follows is well thought out, though the ending does not necessarily deliver all the promise of earlier chapters. Perhaps Brimson is just waiting to launch a sequel. Nonetheless, even if a tale of a group of hooligans travelling to watch England in Rome might cut a little close to the bone, The Crew will undoubtedly provide much enjoyment for fans of suspense, albeit in a new context, as well as those whose somewhat more macabre interest has been held by the author's previous books. --Trevor Crowe

Denali Nights: A commercial expedition to climb Mt McKinley's West Buttress (Footsteps on the Mountain travel diaries Book 20)

The sign behind the desk in the National Park ranger station in Talkeetna, the gateway town for Denali, North America's highest mountain, had some news which could be interpreted one of two ways depending on whether you were a pessimist or an optimist.

79% of climbers had reached the summit that season, and the normal success rate was just 50%. Surely that meant it was a good year to climb Denali?

There had been an unprecedented spell of good weather on the peak known as Mt McKinley, one of the Seven Summits, a peak notorious for its severe conditions and cold temperatures that trapped climbers in storms for days on end. This year people were climbing straight up and reaching the summit without a hitch, and coming back down again days ahead of schedule.

But it would take two weeks of hauling 30kg sledges while carrying 20kg backpacks before Mark Horrell's team would be in a position to launch an attack on the summit themselves, and they knew these statistics evened themselves out eventually.

Would the weather hold, or would they find themselves fighting to survive in the teeth of a storm?

This is Mark's account of his expedition to climb Denali's West Buttress as part of a commercial team, and contains lots of useful advice, like not falling asleep while using a pee bottle, how to avoid bonking on the trail, and how to make a sledge travel in the right direction by shouting at it.

Foreward: This publication began in 2002 after leaving the regular armed forces and joining the territorial army, prior to this I had done my apprenticeship in football coaching (Soccer skills community coaching scheme) and started the journey to learning the right choices on diet and fitness which prepared me for the army. As a teenager, I had almost no education from the state on dietary advice and exercise apart from run till you drop as an overweight child. My motivation for this was to distribute it online and in disk format to whoever wishes to learn about diet and fitness because of my own journey and applying that knowledge through sports coaching, instruction and volunteering to youth sector, Duke of Edinburgh leadership and the cadet force.

The biggest influence on the refinement of the writing and approach especially towards elite level fitness was from Ranulph Fiennes Fitness book: Fit for life and Alliance computers for working with me to produce the Mini-Cd's (50mb) to distribute to local schools, colleges and clients.

Sports Wales (2005) had a role to play in allowing presentations of the material and building it into a presentation series which is also found on the website (heartsmmedia) Hearts and Minds media who edited the material and presented it into this format for distribution online. YMCA Fitness London for their consultation of the material and their training which helped to form the weight training and circuits exercises.

Despite revisiting the book after 10 years and continuing my journey through sports psychology now I still hope that one more person reached can help their choices for leading a fuller life. And also call for greater changes in legislation on fast food, proper food advice for kids, involvement across generations for community sports.

Sports are such a great teacher. I think of everything they've taught me: camaraderie, humility, how to resolve differences.

The very Worst Riding School in the World

Who would be stupid enough to open and run a riding school when they are terrified of horses, can't ride, without insurance or capital, and with not the faintest idea of how to care for horses. Add to that, two of the four horses are not fit for the knacker's yard. Yes, that's exactly what I did - like so many of my adventures I 'fell' into this one as well with hilarious results.

Red Mist: A Liverpool Fan's View of the 2014/15 Season

AFTER the heartbreak of last year's near miss, fans and pundits alike anticipated Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool taking one step further and winning their first title since 1990.

But what followed was one of the most tumultuous seasons in the club's history. Luis Suarez was embroiled in the third biting incident of his career at the World Cup, and was reluctantly sold to Barcelona. His replacement was the equally controversial Mario Balotelli.

The Italian struggled badly and it quickly became clear that the Reds' problems extended far beyond the absence of a certain Uruguayan striker.

And with the season at its lowest ebb, the bombshell was dropped that arguably Liverpool's greatest ever player, Steven Gerrard would be leaving.

Experience all the trials and tribulations from the perspective of a lifelong fan featuring articles from The Liverpool Way, Red All Over the Land and We Are Liverpool fanzines.

Packed with honesty and dark humour, Red Mist is an intense examination of what exactly went wrong at Anfield this season both on the pitch and behind the scenes.

Neil Collins is a diehard Liverpool supporter from Cardiff. Red Mist is his second book, and the follow-up to Make Us Dream.

Does prison work?

This 1-hour free course discussed the question 'Does prison work?' and the purpose, efficacy and regulation of prisons.


Over the centuries eiderdown has been coveted by the Vikings, Russian tsars and medieval tax collectors who accepted it as revenue. The plumage of a fat sea duck, eiderdown - treasured for its extraordinary lightness and insulation - now joins cocaine as an instrument of globalisation and commodity of the super-rich.

In this revelatory essay, Edward Posnett travels to the Westfjords region of Iceland to explore the fragile relationship between Icelanders and the duck. Eiderdown harvesting began with the arrival of Norse settlers in the 9th century, and it is now stuffed into pillows, duvets and clothing which sell for thousands of pounds in Japan, China, Germany and Russia. What might at first appear an idyllic pastime becomes a story of compromise and exploitation. Posnett's finely spun prose and his fascinating encounters open up this seldom seen trade, one which hangs in the balance.

Intro to Metabolic Enhancement Training (MET): Two Metabolic Weight Training Conditioning Programs for Fat Loss and Muscle Gain

Metabolic Enhancement Training or just "MET," was designed to improve conditioning, build muscle and induce hypertrophy, and speed up the metabolism.

Why do gymnasts, sprinters, and certain positions in the NFL look great year-round? What lessons can we learn from their training and training programs?

Many of these athletes look as though they could step onto a bodybuilding stage "contest ready" and wipe the floor with the actual bodybuilders there, all without having to diet down for months on end, or doing endless bouts of cardio! They just look great every month of the year.

MET is the strategic combination of functional training movements with traditional bodybuilding training methods to induce hypertrophy, build muscle, burn fat, and increase your metabolism. Scott's been using it with his coaching clients for over a decade now. It's often used in conjunction with Scott's Cycle Diet approach for staying lean year round while gaining muscle.

Whether you're looking for conditioning, muscle growth, training for a fast metabolism or just a workout to help you get abs, Metabolic Enhancement Training can help by introducing new totally training stimuli and movements into your current regimen.

This booklet is an introduction to MET, with a full and complete 4-day program, plus a "figure" variation.

Included are two 4-Day MET Hybrid Programs, consisting of various sets of quad-plexes. These are training circuits where you do the first set of exercise A, B, C, and D one after the other before taking a rest, then you go on to your second set. However, with both variations of these circuit training programs, there are specific guidelines to build up to the full four exercises over a few weeks, and then to taper down again at the end of the program. (For example, you start with just doing exercises A and B in the first week.) Both versions are good for the whole body, though the figure variation was designed for female figure competitors, so there's a bit more emphasis on glutes, capped shoulders, and that kind of thing.

In these particular programs, if you want you also have full choice of exercises, so for example, for exercise A you can choose "any compound chest movement" or something. There is a list of exercises you can pick and choose. Also included are versions of both programs with all the exercises chosen for you, just in case you're not sure or are just getting started with this kind of circuit training.

Here are the benefits of Metabolic Enhancement Training:

o GROWTH and WICKED metabolic conditioning

o Have FUN in the gym again

o Neural activation

o Learn new movements and push your body in new ways

From 100 meters to the marathon: Inspirational Stories of some of the greatest runners (Just some Motivation)

Running is an incredible feeling in itself, and a great way to stay fit and at your physical best. As far as humans are concerned, running was necessary, in the earlier days, to hunt for food, to fight in the wars, or to deliver messages.

There have been incredible and inspirational runners in the past, like the Greek messenger Pheidippides, who was sent from the battlefield of Marathon to Athens, to deliver the message that the Persians had been defeated. (He roughly travelled a distance of 40km, almost the same as a modern day marathon event.)

But over the past century, ever since running has become a serious and a highly competitive sport, we have witnessed some individuals, pushing through the human barriers, creating incredible records and in their journey towards doing so, inspiring millions of others to do the same.

Some of these runners, my favourites, that come to my mind immediately are Usain Bolt, Haile Gebrselassie, Milkha Singh and Mo Farah amongst many others. Some of them have had unbelievable stories, some of them have unbelievable records; but each have a strong motivation behind their running journeys and that is what I wish to share here in this book, so that more people are inspired towards their very own running journeys.

Their Glorious Summer

[Article] The summer of 1981 was indeed a fateful one for several young men who played collegiate summer ball in the Valley Baseball League (VBL) in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. For a trio of players on the New Market Rebels, it was the beginning of a journey that would see them enjoy lengthy major league careers. For three players on the Winchester Royals, Fate had seemingly propped open the door to legitimate dreams of future seasons in the big league sun as well, but 1981 would be the pinnacle of their baseball glory. It was a summer in which the team with Dennis Clow and Steve Peruso and Clay Daniel bested the team with Tom Browning and John Kruk and Dan Pasqua. Clow, Peruso, and Daniel together totaled 11 minor league seasons. Browning, Kruk, and Pasqua each played in the majors for 10 years or more.

Few would have predicted the degree of big league success for the Rebel trio. Browning was almost not allowed to return to the team, Pasqua was briefly dismissed from the team, and John Kruk, well "Johnny" did not fare well when he came up against a broom-stick wielding grandma after he accidentally spit tobacco juice on her carpet.

It was the Winchester Royals, founded by Keith Lupton who would go on to be named the executive of the year three times in three different minor leagues, who were the superior team. Their determination, their ability to stage improbable comebacks, and most of all their talent made the 1981 Winchester Royals one of the great summer league teams ever assembled.

Set as it was against the backdrop of the 1981 major league players' strike, the story of the battle for the President's Cup between the Rebels and the Royals epitomizes that mix of glory and poignancy that produces such passion in those who love the game.

Secrets Of Military Fitness: 21 Techniques The Military Uses, That Can Get You Ship Shape

Also available as part of The Fitness Jumbo Bundle

Body weight exercises work. Just look at how the military gets their people into shape in boot camp. How about gymnasts? They use body weight training. But what are the best ways to go about using body weight exercises? Do you do 10 reps or 15? Do you do 3 sets or 5? There's a lot of information out there and it can get a bit confusing.

I created this guide to inform the masses on the techniques the military uses, with body weight workouts, that bring results. This guide is not just another book about body weight exercises. My goal isn't to show you how to do pull-ups and push-ups.

What I am going to show you is how you can work the exercises, using these techniques. This way you can develop strength and endurance on the exercises you choose to do. There is no my way or the highway here. Pick and choose from the techniques as you like. Find out what works for you and work it until you reach your goals.

Time and time again, the military gets new recruits. Those recruits need to meet a certain standard by the time boot camp is over. How do they do it?

First, all recruits must meet a minimum standard when going in. Next, the military has done it's research and has come up with certain techniques to bring those new recruits along.

The techniques outlined in this guide can be used with any type of exercise system including weight lifting, but the main focus of military training is body weight workouts, and so is this guide.

Included in the rear of this guide are three basic sample workouts. Also included is a simple workout that you can do during TV commercial breaks.

Imagine if you could stop wasting your time constantly trying to figure out what works and just get to it. Some of the workouts out there are too easy or too difficult. One size doesn't always fit all. But by using these techniques, you can create a more custom tailored program.

Walk on Water

Sixteen-year-old Lexa Walker has a pretty good shot at becoming the next U.S. Ladies' Figure Skating Champion, but everyone who hears her name thinks only of her brilliant parents--pairs skating legends Walker and Walker--and of the tragedy that ended their short stellar career.

Training under her dissatisfied father, Blake, Lexa both feels the weight of that legacy and dreams of truly fulfilling it . . . by skating pairs instead of singles. No one skates pairs in Blake's rink, though. Not anymore. Lexa can't even speak of her longing to do so without further damaging their already dysfunctional relationship. The only way she'll ever skate pairs is to find a new coach, new rink, new partner, and the money to pay for it all. Impossible. Until someone offers her exactly that. . . .

Is chasing a dream worth risking a national title and what's left of her bond with her father? Or is every risk justified for the chance to walk on water?

Craftsmanship As a Way of Life: An Exploration of the Creative Process and the Enjoyment of Daily Life

How do you enjoy life when you are cash poor? This question has been on my mind since I was fourteen years old, when my father began to slip into a heavy and prolonged depression after becoming unemployed. As a country man, who had grown up on a remote farm and with very little education, his job prospects were very poor. As is so often the case with people who are unemployed, he developed depression and as a result, a degradation of his physical health quickly ensued resulting in his premature death some years later. The last conversation we had was of how unhealthy modern culture is. We lamented the fact that self-abuse, in most circles, is practically a prerequisite to being popular. He drank himself to death that night.

As the naive guy I was in my teens, I thought I could avoid the misery of unemployment by working hard toward a secure career and one that would be interesting. But, as Murphy's law states: everything that can go wrong will go wrong. By a stroke of unbelievably bad luck, in 2008, just as I was to be setting foot toward a lucrative career, not only did my father die suddenly in his sleep but in the very same year, the worst economic crisis in history hit. My industry was hit particularly heavily and as a result I was unemployed for more than a year.

I was forced to face the issue of unemployment in my early twenties and became evermore obsessed with the question of how life can be enjoyed with very little money. I realised already that having a skilled craft would greatly enhance the enjoyment of everyday life (not to mention employment prospects if it's of that sort) but there was something missing. By my mid-twenties I discovered eastern philosophy and meditation. I spent thousands of hours studying each and found that they complimented the experience of craftsmanship greatly. Soon after, I discovered high performance psychology and the puzzle was virtually complete.

And so it is my aim that by reading this short book, you will learn in the space of one weekend what took me thousands of hours to learn through experience, study and observation.

Craftsmanship as a Way of Life is intended to demonstrate how craftsmanship can be approached from a warm perspective and can act as a catalyst for personal growth.

Fitness game exergaming or exer-gaming (a portmanteau of "exercise" and "gaming"), or gamercisingis a term used for video games that are also a form of exercise. Exergaming relies on technology that tracks body movement or reaction. The genre has been credited with upending the stereotype of gaming as a sedentary activity, and promoting an active lifestyle. Research indicates that exergames can produce real improvements in fitness. Exergames are seen as evolving from technology changes aimed at making video games more fun.
