One mother with a teenage boy said "Gods, Gloves, Popups, and Ponies" was like a manual for her son! Baseball dazzles us with its complexity and beauty but also for its ability to mirror so much of the human spirit. The ups and downs of the game along with its style and grace have forever been a source of inspiration to baseball fans and especially to the young people of this country. Gods, Gloves, Pop-ups, and Ponies explores the effect baseball can have on the development of a young man's path to manhood. It is first about how a young man discovers what it means to be awakened from the fog of his adolescent life in his life-changing summer chasing the Pony League title in 1975. It then brings the story to the present moment as we learn how baseball can help shape a young man's character as the young boy is now a coach and we are taken through a season with the high school-baseball players he helps guide and direct. Through his many years allowing the game of baseball to mold and define his character the author brings to us a rare look at just how powerful the lessons found on the field can be to the creation of outstanding young men.

If you've heard about Skype--and who hasn't with all the recent media attention devoted to internet telephone services--chances are you've been mighty tempted to try it out. Skype Hacks tells you what all the Skype hype is about, explains the basics, and shows you more than 100 clever tips and tricks for tweaking and tuning Skype to make it do just what you want and more. Millions of people (48 million and counting, in fact) have opted for Skype, which uses peer-to-peer (P2P) technology to turn any PC, Mac, or Pocket PC into a telephone. Skype offers free calls between computers and extremely cheap calls to "old-fashioned" phone numbers (landlines and mobile phones). The sound quality is excellent, and end-to-end encryption means the connection is private and secure. But if you really know what you're doing, Skype can accomplish a whole lot more than that. Software developer and author Andrew Sheppard recently converted his entire house to Skype and uses it for all his personal and business calls, even when he's traveling. In Skype Hacks, he shows you how to do things with the technology that even the engineers at Skype probably never intended. Skype Hacks shows you how to: Get started with Skype Figure out how much money you're saving and maximize your savings Cut the ties to your old phone company Optimize your Skype configuration Integrate Skype with desktop tools like Microsoft Office and your web browser Set up a Skype-based call center The book offers ideas for creating and organizing a contacts list, using Skype to transfer files, taking advantage of chat and voicemail capabilities, turning a PDA into a mobile phone, and automating Skype for even greater efficiency. So whether you'd simply like to give Skype a trial run, you want new Skype ring tones and fun on-hold music, or you're considering wiring your home with Skype to get rid of "regular" phone service altogether, Skype Hacks is your ideal guide.

Wenn du Gerechtigkeit willst, musst du dafür kämpfen! Der junge Darrow lebt in einer Welt, in der die Menschheit die Erde verlassen und die Planeten erobert hat. Bei der Besiedlung des Mars kommt ihm eine wichtige Aufgabe zu, das jedenfalls glaubt Darrow, der in den Minen im Untergrund schuftet, um eines Tages die Oberfläche des Mars bewohnbar zu machen. Doch dann erkennt er, dass er und seine Leidensgenossen von einer herrschenden Klasse ausgebeutet werden. Denn der Mars ist längst erschlossen, und die Oberschicht lebt in luxuriösen Städten inmitten üppiger Parklandschaften. Sein tief verwurzelter Gerechtigkeitssinn lässt Darrow nur eine Wahl: sich gegen die Unterdrücker aufzulehnen. Dabei führt ihn sein Weg zunächst ins Zentrum der Macht. Der unerschrockene Darrow schleust sich in ihr sagenumwobenes Institut ein, in dem die Elite herangezogen wird. Denn um sie vernichtend schlagen zu können, muss er einer von ihnen werden ...

This volume uses colorful images from Victorian-era illustrated books to provide a survey of their art and the rise of children's literature. Full color plates accent descriptions which include story plot summaries and commentary of the different works. In brief introductions to each of the main genres, the author refers to each genres influences, conventions, and aims of the artists. This book contains a selection of nineteenth-and very early twentieth-century American children's book images from the collection of Ellen and Arthur Linman; the vast majorities are taken from the publications of McLoughlin Brothers in New York, which was active in juvenile publishing from 1850 to 1905.
