Foreword by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson From a top mental conditioning coach—"the world's best brain trainer” (Sports Illustrated)—who has transformed the lives and careers of elite athletes, business leaders, and military personnel, battle-tested strategies that will give you tools to manage and overcome negativity and achieve any goal. He knows how to win. More, he knows the many ways-subtle, brutal, often self-inflicted-we lose. As the most trusted mental coach in the world of sports, Trevor Moawad has worked with many of the most dominant athletes and the savviest coaches. From Nick Saban and Kirby Smart to Russell Wilson, they all look to Moawad for help finding or keeping or regaining their com­petitive edge. (As do countless business leaders and members of special forces.) Now, at last, Moawad shares his unique philosophy with the general public. He lays out lessons he's derived from his greatest career successes as well as personal setbacks, the game-changing wisdom he's earned as the go-to whisperer for elite performers on fields of play and among men and women headed to the battlefield. Moawad's motivational approach is elegant but refreshingly simple: He replaces hardwired negativity, the kind of defeatist mindset that's nearly everybody's default, with what he calls "neutral thinking." His own special innovation, it's a nonjudg­mental, nonreactive way of coolly assessing problems and analyzing crises, a mode of attack that offers luminous clarity and su­preme calm in the critical moments before taking decisive action. Not only can neutral thinking raise your performance level-it can transform your overall life. And it all starts, Moawad says, with letting go. Past failures, past losses-let them go. "The past isn't predic­tive. If you can absorb and embrace that belief, everything changes. You'll instantly feel more calm. And the athlete-or employee or parent or spouse-who's more calm is also more aware, and more times than not ... will win."

By subjecting a class of Taiwanese fictions to study in the critical framework of naturalism the author redefines an unsettling relationship between them and their Chinese as well as Japanese counterparts, further identifying some aspects of the cultural entity as belonging properly to Taiwanese literature. -------------------------- C. H. Wang, Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature, University of Washington, Seattle. ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... . . .... ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... In this trenchant and lively study Nai-Huei Shen provides a new perspective for viewing Taiwanese literature under Japanese colonization, since naturalism as a prominent literary mode has been neglected in most research in this field for many decades. Taiwanese naturalism was enormously influenced by French naturalism. But its specific cultural topography and particular colonial history make it unique from many naturalist versions. The book has helped to shape the fundamental conceptions of modern Taiwanese literary arts.

During the past few decades, the populations of many U.S. and European cities have shown the same residence and workplace mobility patterns: Annually, approximately 10 percent of the population changed residences and approximately 20 percent of employed workers changed workplaces within the same metropolitan area. Even though the Seattle metropolitan region experienced a substantial amount of residential and workplace mobility and a boom in employment and population in the 1990s, the morning commute time and distance was roughly constant. To explain this situation, researchers have proposed a co-location hypothesis, that is, residents and workers will change their residence or workplace or both adapt to worsening congestion.This research attempted to shed light on the mechanism of the co-location hypothesis and commute mode adjustment using the Puget Sound Transportation Panel data consisting of seven waves of 2 consecutive years between 1989 and 1997 conducted by the Puget Sound Regional Council. This study attempted to understand commuting patterns by residential and workplace changers.

Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts ereignete sich eine Revolution: Die Jugend erkämpfte sich ihre eigene Musik. Sie bekam eine eigene Mode und schließlich einen eigenen Fernsehkanal. Und jetzt bekommt sie sogar eine eigene Stadt! X-City - kurz XCT - ist eine Mischung aus Christiania und einem Disneyland für die Generation X, eine Gegenwelt zum tristen Mc-Job-Alltag, in der Musik, weiche Drogen und Liebe zum Pflichtprogramm gehören. Corky findet das ganze Projekt ziemlich lächerlich. Sie arbeitet in einer Bar im Seattle der achtziger Jahre, einem nachgebildeten Kernstück von XCT. Und sie ist genervt von Wayne, den sie eines Tages dabei ertappt, wie er am PC das digitale Bild ihres nackten Körpers manipuliert. Doch kaum hat sie ihrem Lover den Kopf gewaschen, da überschlagen sich die Ereignisse: Erst geht der Farbtanker in die Luft, dann wird die Stadt von paramilitärischen Einheiten besetzt. Das Motto von X-City, "Love & Peace", scheint Vergangenheit zu sein ...

'Amplitude: New and Selected Poems' by Tess Gallagher 'A masterpiece of connection--'--Ted Gioia, 'San Francisco Chronicle' 'Gallagher's poems are rooted in a relentlessly willed attempt to come to terms with, to find words for, the fullness of life.'--'Young Adult Paperback Book Guide' 'The great joy in reading Tess Gallagher's poetry in 'Amplitude' comes from discovering that she can and will do anything with language.'--Bin Ramke, 'The Bloomsbury Review' 'It's that seesaw combination of earthiness and the ethereal, of the public and the intimate, of the difficult closeness of family (one of her best subjects) and wider concerns, all related in a firm and passionate yet subdued voice, that makes Tess Gallagher a great poet.'--Frederick Koeppel, 'The Commercial Appeal' 'In 'Amplitude' Tess Gallagher conjures the Northwest's landscape of high green trees and shifting gray water, its climate of rain and subdued moonlight. Water-drenched and shady, the place encourages drifting or floating, rather than sudden turns, sharp edges. Gallagher's poems are full of departure and return, release and embrace--we know where home is, as we come to know her mother who felled trees and was once beautiful, her brother who repeats their father's life as a logger, their shared past as children who built cabins in the woods.'--Emily Leider, 'San Francisco Chronicle' 'Gallagher's new collection, 'Amplitude,' signals a shift away from the stark lyric cry. She pays increasing attention to storytelling within the poem, turning toward a poetic hybrid known as the narrative-lyric. While her poetry is no less dense in its imagery, no less intricate a structue of language, Gallagher'sstorytelling mode offers a more generous invitation to the reader than the abstruse 'raw' strain of contemporary verse.'--Jenny wyatt, 'Seattle Weekly'

'For much of his life, Howie has assembled the lore and language of his native people, supplementing his own copious writings (more than a million words) with tape recordings and his own drawings of the personalities he knew in the tribe, and depictions of the serene coastal village where they lived, La Push. He is a terrific artist, and for years he has been an art instructor in Seattle. Some of Howie's written documentation has involved the language of the Quileute, which has many complex sounds, such as one that requires putting the tongue up against the back of the teeth and blowing, like trying to say 'L' in English. Anthropologists say the Quileute language is thousands of years old, going back farther than any native tongue in the Pacific Northwest. It was in that remarkable mode of communication that stories and lessons were passed on orally for thousands of years, an unwritten tradition going from tribal member to tribal member - a practice that is fading away with the passage of time. Now, with the Quileute nation assimilating into western culture, and the traditional ways of cKulell's people vanishing (including their language), Howie feels an urgency to tell the story of his people, so that it will not be lost to the young men and women of his tribe. Here is a portion of that immense chronicle, written by an elder who knows his subject well...' ~From the Introduction.
