Summary

The Russia-Ukraine war once again focused attention on the United States, not only because it is a member of NATO or because it is one of the main powers in the world, but because of the interests that are at stake. The affinities are clear: Trump-Russia-Putin and Biden-Ukraine-Zelenski. On the other hand, with the arrest of Enrique Tarrio and other members of groups that supported Donald Trump, with their silencing on the networks and their public cancelation, it has become very clear what place groups like the Proud Boys occupy in the Biden administration.

    The Summa Theologica (or the Summa Theologiae or simply the Summa, written 1265–1274) is the most famous work of Thomas Aquinas (c. 1225–1274) although it was never finished. It was intended as a manual for beginners and a compilation of all of the main theological teachings of that time. It summarizes the reasoning for almost all points of Christian theology in the West, which, before the Protestant Reformation, subsisted solely in the Roman Catholic Church. The Summa's topics follow a cycle: the existence of God, God's creation, Man, Man's purpose, Christ, the Sacraments, and back to God. (Summary adapted from the Wikipedia)This selection of the Summa Theologica covers questions 49-89 of the Prima Secundae ("First-half of the Second Part"), a Treatise on the Habits, Virtues and Vices: the habits in general (questions 49-54), and in particular (questions 55-89), whether expressed as virtues (55-70) or as vices (71-89).

    “Motley is . . . [a] reminder of the glory—and outrage—of segregated baseball . . . A wonderful book.” —ESPN 
     
    The Kansas City Monarchs, the Chicago American Giants, the St. Louis Stars, the Birmingham Black Barons, the Homestead Grays, and the Indianapolis Clowns; for over fifty years, they were the Yankees, Cardinals, and Red Sox of black baseball in America. And for over a decade beginning in the late 1940s, umpire Bob Motley called balls and strikes for many of their games, working alongside such legends as Satchel Paige, Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, and Willie Mays.  
     
    Motley’s personal account of the Negro Leagues is a revealing, humorous, and unforgettable memoir celebrating a long-lost league and a remarkable group of baseball players. In this brand new 100-year anniversary edition of Ruling Over Monarchs, Giants, and Stars, Motley and his son Byron share the characters, adventures, and challenges faced by these amazing men as they enthusiastically embraced America’s pastime and made it their own. Filled with stories of talented heroes, small miracles, and downright fun, this unique memoir is a must-read for any baseball fan. 
     
    “An important step in revealing what has been for most Americans a ‘hidden history.’” —Ken Burns 
     
     
     
    “Motley recalls his time as an arbiter with reverence and entertains the reader with stories of life in the Negro Leagues and his views on the quality of baseball played in those leagues.” —The Guy Who Reviews Sports Books

    From Pulitzer Prize-winner John McPhee—author of The Founding Fish —comes the fascinating story of an often overlooked, yet vitally important part of America. This first-hand account of the transportation sector features evocative portraits of the men and women who deliver our consumer and industrial goods.  McPhee begins his adventure riding with Don Ainsworth, owner and operator of an 18-wheeler hauling nearly 30 tons of highly toxic chemicals from North Carolina to Washington. He continues his journey on a towboat pushing over 1,000 feet of barge up the narrow channel of the Illinois River. He rounds out his account crawling through Nebraska, Kansas, and the Powder River Basin of Wyoming in massive coal trains. Along the way, he tells the stories of the people he meets and the places he visits.  McPhee’s sense of humor, incisive observations, and historical asides make for a highly entertaining journey across America.  “Read this colorful journalism and you will never view an 18-wheeler, freight train, or UPS truck in quite the same way.”—Kirkus Reviews

This is the question that has defined Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck’s decades of research, resulting in her ground-breaking theory of mindset. Dweck believes that talent and intelligence do not tell the full story about one’s ability to achieve. Instead, what determines personal success is whether one has a fixed or growth mindset; the first is a belief that our qualities and strengths cannot be altered, and the second way of thinking supports the idea that they can change over time.   Based on meticulous research, and with anecdotes about successful CEOs, athletes, artists, and educators who achieved greatness through attitude as much as ability, Mindset offers new ways of thinking about motivation and personal development.   The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
