A humorous and practical guide to the history and science of understanding the weather?plus, how to build your own barometer! For as long as man has walked upon this earth, he has been forced to survive under the cruel tyranny of weather. Let?s face it: there is no escape. Now, in Man vs. Weather, humorist Dennis DiClaudio offers up the knowledge to beat weather at its own game. Rooting through conventional wisdom, discovered gadgetry, and the advances of science, this book presents the geothermal mechanisms behind weather-related phenomena, the history of humanity?s relationship with the climate, as well as the truth surrounding atmospheric aphorisms. Have no fear: By the time you make your way through this book, you will be able to read, understand, and defend yourself against the elements! ? Is ?Red sky at night, sailor?s delight? a helpful saying or just the ramblings of idiotic drunkards who like to rhyme? ? What are these Santa Ana winds that blow out warmly from the desert, and who is this hussy for which they are named? ? What is this Gulf Stream that flows out from Mexico before crossing the Atlantic toward Africa and Europe, and how can a stream cut through the ocean anyway?

Controversy swirled around the Black Panthers from the moment the revolutionary black nationalist Party was founded in Oakland, California, in 1966. Since that time, the group that J. Edgar Hoover called “the single greatest threat to the nation’s internal security” has been celebrated and denigrated, deified and vilified. Rarely, though, has it received the sort of nuanced analysis offered in this rich interdisciplinary collection. Historians, along with scholars in the fields of political science, English, sociology, and criminal justice, examine the Panthers and their present-day legacy with regard to revolutionary violence, radical ideology, urban politics, popular culture, and the media. The essays consider the Panthers as distinctly American revolutionaries, as the products of specific local conditions, and as parts of other movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s. One contributor evaluates the legal basis of the Panthers’ revolutionary struggle, explaining how they utilized and critiqued the language of the Constitution. Others explore the roles of individuals, looking at a one-time Panther imprisoned for a murder he did not commit and an FBI agent who monitored the activities of the Panthers’ Oakland branch. Contributors assess the Panthers’ relations with Students for a Democratic Society, the Young Lords, the Brown Berets, and the Peace and Freedom Party. They discuss the Party’s use of revolutionary aesthetics, and they show how the Panthers manipulated and were manipulated by the media. Illuminating some of the complexities involved in placing the Panthers in historical context, this collection demonstrates that the scholarly search for the Black Panthers has only just begun.

A Trump tweet starts an FBI investigation in this historical novel and legal thriller, leading to the arrest of an aging university professor for his role in violent acts of protest in the 1970s: actual political bombings and invented political assassinations. Real people such as the anti-imperialist Weathermen leader Bernardine Dohrn and her compatriot Bill Ayers, along with President Trump and his FBI director James Comey, are complemented by fictional characters like FBI Cold Case agent Mar?Shae ?Black? McGurk and East Coast folk musician/university student Val Shaw. Complex plot twists are resolved in a realistic federal trial as the narrative alternates between the original crimes and today?s attempts to arrive at justice. As an introduction to the history of the Viet Nam anti-war movement, the novel represents the real actors? actual backgrounds, motiva-tions, actions, words, and voices, based in part on recent memoirs by various Weathermen and the latest historical research on the group. Their ideology is faithfully incorporated.Paradoxically, the characters on all sides act out of patriotism as they understand it, and their convictions about what America stands for, illustrating the deep divisions in American politics and society.

Linda Smith was the brilliant mainstay of Radio 4's The News Quiz, Just a Minute, and I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue for many years. She was just establishing her career on TV through blistering performances on Have I Got News for You, QI and Room 101, when she died of ovarian cancer in 2006. Linda was one of the few women to conquer the male dominated world of comedy and she had the wit and the charm to win over millions of male and female fans in equal measure. She had an eye for the absurdities of modern life and loved to prick the egos of the pompous and the vain. When she called David Blunkett 'Satan's bearded folk singer', it was a simple statement of fact. No wonder then Linda was voted the 'wittiest person alive' by Radio 4 listeners in 2002. This collection of her material, from her early stand-up to her radio days is a must-have for any comedy fan.
