Summary

Written by major sports event organizer Filippo Bazzanella and sports communications/operations manager Egon Theiner, "Must Have, Nice to Have!" examines how major sports events are organized and gives an in-depth look into the synergies between sports, media, politics and business. It documents the excesses, wasted public investments, abandoned stadiums and "white elephant" projects that have been made in the name of sporting excellence in recent years, and that have caused increasing controversy. In addition, it discusses the often negative public attitudes toward event bidding and staging currently prevalent in many parts of the globe, and offers a practical response to the measures announced by the International Olympic Committee in its 40-step reform program Agenda 2020 at the end of 2014. 

 Based on interviews, case studies and examples of good practice, the book provides pragmatic, constructive advice and examples of organizational systems that could be useful to future organizers adopting a structured and "human-scale" approach that trims budgets, refocuses events back on sports and that reflects the needs and views of all the different stakeholders involved. 

Including contributions by leading sports experts ranging from FISU World University Championships President Claude Louis Gallien, International Ski Federation President Gian Franco Kasper, International Skating Union President Ottavio Cinquanta, Olympic Games Executive Director Christophe Dubi, former World Ski super-star Alberto Tomba, World Federation of Sporting Goods Industry President Frank Dassler to Italian Football Federation General Director Michele Uva, this book goes beyond the present status quo, and makes proposals for future, possible solutions for dilemmas faced by event organizers, sports associations, governments and public bodies today.

    This book is a standalone, complete story. No Cliffhangers. HFN. Multiple POV.
     
    The Dark Ice Collection contains books that are about Professional Hockey players that have very dark sides.
     
    Alana had loved hockey all her life. When she attended a game she didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. So, she was shocked when after a game she was asked out by a player. In fact, she had been so shocked she had said No. Little did she realize that that one little word would change her life forever.
     
    Ronan was a star. He was feared on the ice and adored by his fans. He had women falling at his feet. No one ever told him no— Until Alana.
     
    She was about to learn that no one turned him down and got away with it. Ronan always got what he wanted. And now he wanted her.
     
    This book is subtitled as Book One under this collection. However, each book is standalone and not related to each other in their storylines. They are published under the ‘Dark Ice Collection’ title so that readers can quickly identify my books that share the genres of Dark erotic romance and Professional Hockey.
     
     
     
    This book is in the Dark ‘romance’ genre. It contains taboo subject matter that some readers may find disturbing.
     
    Due to the content, this book is intended for adults 18 years and older.

    Karate Science - Dynamic Movement

    As a lifelong student of martial arts, J. D. Swanson, Ph.D., had searched through piles of books on form and function. Stand here, they said. Step there. But where movement was concerned, not one of them went deep enough. No one discussed dynamics―the actual feeling of the moves.
    
     
    Martial instruction, both in print and in person, tends to focus on stances and finishing positions. But dynamics, motion, sensation...they are karate's connective tissue―and they are the heart of this book.
    
     
    Karate Science: Dynamic Movement will help you understand the mechanics of the human body. Swanson describes these principles in incredible detail, drawing on examples from several styles of karate, as well as aikido, taekwondo, and judo. Whatever your martial background, applying this knowledge will make your techniques better, stronger, and faster. 
    
    
        Understand the major types of techniques, including their outward appearances and internal feelings.
    
        Master the core principles behind these feelings.
    
        Learn the biomechanics and dynamics of core movement.
    
    
    
     
    Karate Science: Dynamic Movement is filled with examples, anecdotes, and beautiful illustrations. Although Shotokan karate is the author's frame of reference, the principles of human mechanics translate to all martial styles.
    
     
    This book features
    
    
    
        Clear and insightful explanations of dynamic movement.
    
        Over 100 illustrations.
    
        Profound but accessible analysis of the kihon, or fundamentals of Shotokan karate. 
    
    
    
    
     
    “Karate Science: Dynamic Movement is rooted in the teachings of the masters,” Swanson says. “This book nucleates that knowledge, clarifying and distilling the key principles behind movement dynamics. This is the next evolution of karate books.”
