An extraordinary literary journey, 100 Years celebrates every age from birth to 100 with quotations from the world’s greatest writers. This literary tapestry of the human experience will delight readers of all backgrounds. Moving year by year through the words of our most beloved authors, the great sequence of life reveals itself—the wonders and confinements of childhood, the emancipations and frustrations of adolescence, the empowerments and millstones of adulthood, the recognitions and resignations of old age. This trove of wisdom—featuring immortal passages from Arthur Rimbaud, Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf, David Foster Wallace, William Shakespeare, Herman Melville, Jane Austen, and Maya Angelou, among many others—reminds us that the patterns of life transcend continents, cultures, and generations. As Thomas Mann wrote of our most shared human experience: "It will happen to me as to them." Designed by the legendary Milton Glaser, who created the I ♥ NY logo, 100 Years brings together color, type, and text to illuminate the ebb and flow of an entire life.

China fragments, a new Cold War with Russia, Mexcio challenges U.S., the new great powers Turkey, Poland and Japan. The Next 100 Years is a fascinating, eye-opening and often shocking look at what lies ahead for the U.S. and the world from one of our most incisive futurists. In his provocative book, George Friedman turns his eye on the future—offering a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century. He explains where and why future wars will erupt (and how they will be fought), which nations will gain and lose economic and political power, and how new technologies and cultural trends will alter the way we live in the new century. The Next 100 Years draws on a fascinating exploration of history and geopolitical patterns dating back hundreds of years. Friedman shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, at the dawn of a new era—with changes in store, including: • The U.S.-Jihadist war will conclude—replaced by a second full-blown cold war with Russia. • China will undergo a major extended internal crisis, and Mexico will emerge as an important world power. • A new global war will unfold toward the middle of the century between the United States and an unexpected coalition from Eastern Europe, Eurasia, and the Far East; but armies will be much smaller and wars will be less deadly. • Technology will focus on space—both for major military uses and for a dramatic new energy resource that will have radical environmental implications. • The United States will experience a Golden Age in the second half of the century. Written with the keen insight and thoughtful analysis that has made George Friedman a renowned expert in geopolitics and forecasting, The Next 100 Years presents a fascinating picture of what lies ahead.

This pithy and engaging volume shows that economists may be better equipped to predict the future than science fiction writers. Economists' ideas, based on both theory and practice, reflect their knowledge of the laws of human interactions as well as years of experimentation and reflection. Although perhaps not as screenplay-ready as a work of fiction, these economists' predictions are ready for their close-ups. In this book, ten prominent economists -- including Nobel laureates and several likely laureates -- offer their ideas about the world of the twenty-second century. In scenarios that range from the optimistic to the guardedly gloomy, these thinkers consider such topics as the transformation of work and wages, the continuing increase in inequality, the economic rise of China and India, the endlessly repeating cycle of crisis and (projected) recovery, the benefits of technology, the economic consequences of political extremism, and the long-range effects of climate change. For example, Daron Acemoglu offers a thoughtful discussion of how trends of the last century -- including uneven growth, technological integration, and resource scarcity -- might translate into the next; 2013 Nobelist Robert Shiller provides an innovative view of future risk management methods using information technology; 2012 Nobelist Alvin Roth projects his theory of Matching Markets into the next century, focusing on schools, jobs, marriage and family, and medicine; 1987 Nobelist Robert Solow considers the shift away from remunerated labor, among other subjects; and Martin Weitzman raises the intriguing but alarming possibility of using geoengineering techniques to mitigate the nevitable effects of climate change. In a 1930 essay mentioned by several contributors, "Economic Possibilities for Our Grandchildren," John Maynard Keynes offered predictions that, read today, range from absolutely correct to spectacularly wrong. This book follows in Keynes's path, hoping, perhaps, to better his average.

This book is about PTSD and OCD. I suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, and the writing of this poem has certainly opened my eyes to the true essence of the First World War and the Anzacs and their sacrifice. It is raw truth about Gallipoli.

For the NHL's 100th season, a fan-friendly, argument starter of a book, compiling the 100 most impactful moments in league history. From ostentatious scoring totals to unstoppable teams destined for championships, the NHL boasts a history of greatness. But as die-hard fans well know, greatness isn't the whole story. In this image-rich, licenced celebration of the NHL's past and present, veteran hockey journalist Scott Morrison mines a century of NHL hockey to find the game's 100 most important moments. From Bobby Orr's 1969-70 trophy haul, to Detroit coach Scotty Bowman's unprecedented icing of five Russians at once on the Red Wings' way to their first of several Stanley Cups, the Stastny brothers' defection, and Roger Neilson reviewing a game on VHS, these moments weren't always the photogenic peaks of athletic glory that graced the morning news, but each of them changed the game.

The House of Abingdon's story begins in the early years of the 20th Century when the servant of an English Lord arrives at an isolated county among the foothills of Appalachia. The land surveyed, work soon begins on a house spacious and fine enough for retired nobility, for retirement seems the goal of Lord Richard Abingdon. Retirement from the trappings of nobility, retirement from the world, from life. With building of the house complete, a new community springs up not far away, a small town bearing the lord of the house's name, and Richard finds he can isolate himself physically but the world will continue to intrude itself upon him and his self-built domain. What follows is a century of the rise and fall of the House of Abingdon, from its promising beginning to its dark and dreary end and all events between. During that time, a host of individuals come and go within the house, from servants to those of high society and the strange, seemingly never-aging residents. In the end, the house offers more questions than answers, more mysteries than solutions, for the obvious and the seeming obvious are never truth in The House of Abingdon.

One article: The legal notices in the Stuart Times on Friday, May 14, 1914 included: “Notice is hereby given that will on the 23rd day of May A.D. 1914 at Ten o’clock in the forenoon, apply to the Honorable Judge L.

The Silent Sixtieth, is the story of the 60th Canadian Overseas Battalion, in World War One. Originally begun simply as research into the author's ancestry, The Silent Sixtieth evolved into a history of the 60th Canadian Overseas Battalion in World War One. The book details the forming of the battalion in Montreal in the summer of 1915, follows it through training and into France, where it fought in some of the defining battles of Canada's First World War effort: Ypres, Mount Sorrel, the Somme, and Vimy Ridge. The Silent Sixtieth chronicles the struggles that eventually became one of the foundational experiences of the Canadian historical identity, and does so with both an eye for detail and a personal touch. By the end of the war, 39% of mobilized Canadian troops were casualties. 2015 is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Battalion....

This book is a showcase celebration of the achievements of women dental professionals in the 100 years since (some) women first achieved the right to vote in the United Kingdom. Women dentists hold equal status as men within the profession, although there is some way to go before this is mirrored across dentistry as a whole. This volume will serve to provide inspiration to all dental professionals, men and women, regarding the many and varied opportunities dentistry provides. The women profiled are working (or have worked) in all aspects of dentistry, they are role models to all and are a credit to the profession. We can learn so much from each other, and the role of mentoring is an important underpinning thread that runs throughout the book and is highlighted in the career stories of each woman.
