The true beginnings of racing is an argument never really settled. One could argue that as soon as the second car was manufactured, a contest of speed ensued against the first. While the roots of modern drag racing goes back to the dry lakes of California in the 30s, drag racing became a sanctioned affair in the early 50s with the forming of the National Hot Rod Association. In the 60 years that have followed the first NHRA sanctioned race in 1953, the changes in technology have been astounding, as well as the categories and classes in which racers have competed. And of all of the eras, the golden era of the late 50s through the early 70s is the clear fan favorite. Drag Racing's Quarter-Mile Warriors: Then & Now takes a unique look at the most memorable, interesting, and successful cars from this golden age of drag racing. Chronicled are Diggers and Rail dragsters, Funny Cars, wild Altereds, door slammers like Super and Junior Stock cars, early 70s Pro Stock cars and more. Vintage and modern photography in a unique "then and now" format cover the cars as they first competed, through their evolution (or inactivity) over the years, and how they look today. Cars driven by legends such as Mickey Thompson, Tommy Ivo, Dick Landy, Grumpy Jenkins, Sox & Martin, Don Nicholson, Bob Glidden, and more are featured in evolutionary detail. Never before has a book covered the cars from the golden age of drag racing and combined it with a modern look at where the cars are today. From full restorations to still competing in nostalgia events, from museum pieces to collecting dust in a dark corner waiting for another day in the sun, Drag Racing's Quarter-Mile Warriors: Then & Now gives you a unique look at how these cars have fared over time. No drag racing library is complete without it.

Doch auch in poetischer Hinsicht sind sie äußerst begabt, wie feinsinnige Gedichte wie »Ich lecke deine Nase", »Das ist mein Sessel" und »Die Tür ist zu" zeigen. Dieses Buch vereint die besten Gedichte, Klagelieder und Weisheiten von Katzen aus aller Welt und o¬ffenbart deren heimliche Wünsche, innere Konflikte und alle Eigen- und Unarten ihres neurotischen Wesens. Endlich werden Sie verstehen, warum Ihre Katze liebend gern auf Ihrem Gesicht liegt, bevor die Sonne aufgeht, Ihnen hilft, den Nachttisch mit ihrem Schwanz aufzuräumen und warum sie sich unbedingt versichern muss, dass eine Klopapierrolle tatsächlich 1000 Blatt enthält.

In erotic stories, consensual submissives and slaves are usually beautiful, perfect people who can endure any hardship while balancing a tray of drinks in one hand. But what about real life, where many of us in dominant/submissive or master/slave relationships cope with mental illness or neurological disorders? Some would say that these individuals shouldn’t even be doing power exchange, and yet many are – and they are making it work. Broken Toys explores the brave stories of people in service and surrender who are struggling with imperfect brains and nervous systems, and the inventive masters and mistresses who love them, and find ways to use the dynamic to keep everyone going.

Der Weg zu Gelassenheit und innerer Stärke Von Termin zu Termin hetzend, stressgeplagt und ständig unter Druck findet der moderne Mensch nur noch schwer zu Erholung und innerer Ruhe. Kann Meditation hier eine Hilfe sein? »Ja, man muss nur richtig meditieren«, sagt Ajahn Brahm, einer der ungewöhnlichsten und angesehensten buddhistischen Lehrer unserer Zeit. »Meditation kann unseren Alltag wandeln, bereichern und lässt ihn leichter werden.« Zunächst schildert der Autor klar und deutlich, wie die anfänglichen Hindernisse und Stolpersteine überwunden werden können: das unaufhörliche Gedankenkarussell, die Ungeduld, die Ablenkung durch äußere Einflüsse und die Müdigkeit. In der Vertiefung der Praxis geht es um tiefe Gedankenstille, das Gewahrsein des Augenblicks, das Loslassen aller Mühen und Sorgen. Dieses Buch lehrt eine Form der Meditation, die uns stärker werden, innere Stille finden und Kraft schöpfen lässt, um die Hürden des Alltags zu überwinden und in das spirituelle Leben einzutreten.
