Known to thousands of rugby fans as a knowledgeable, passionate and witty broadcaster, and as an entertaining and popular after-dinner speaker, Phil Steele's confident demeanour and humorous disposition mask a life-long battle against depression and anxiety heightened by heartbreak and tragedy in his personal life. Nerves of Steele is a remarkable story and reveals the real Phil Steele, a man known only by his very closest friends and family. The Cardiff-born 'Ely Boy', who dreamed of playing for Wales, suffered his first bout of debilitating clinical depression when he saw his promising rugby career with Newport RFC wrecked by injury at only 23, just as his eye-catching performances had earned him a call up to the Wales B squad. The curse of mental illness and its malevolent twin, chronic anxiety, hung over Phil for years, who describes his suffering as 'like living under a cloak of constant unease' and at times even sapped his will to go on living. His vulnerability was repeatedly tested by losing both parents whilst still in his twenties, his younger sister to alcoholism and his beloved wife Liz who died from a brain tumour aged 48, only a month after being diagnosed. Nerves of Steele is, however, an uplifting story of how, despite all the mental anguish and personal tragedy, Phil's determination, strength of character and infectious personality has enabled him to conquer his condition and live a full and rewarding personal and professional life. With mental illness believed to affect one in every four people, Nerves of Steele will resonate with those that have experienced it themselves as well as their loved ones who've also been affected by it - and offer them all real hope for the future.

“Spikey’s Points” is a fable about a poetic porcupine with mostly ‘good points,’ sharing many life lessons. Spikey is bullied and ostracized, but has chosen to be the ‘park peacemaker,” with his mentor Grammy. By being kind and helpful, they make the world a better place, and encourage others to keep their faith in humanity. ALL STAR CAST: Back Row: LARRY Law, Coach BOB, Ms SARAH Bell, MR.

The energetic singing and dancing of the 20 local performers, aged 8 to 55, keep young audiences entertained throughout!” Kevin Prokosh, Winnipeg Free Press “My Kindergarteners enjoyed the music and Spikey himself!” Shara Ewasiuk, Kindergarten Teacher “Spikey opens stage doors for all ranges, ages and sizes of actors. The musical features powerful messages concerning inclusion and anti-bullying, appealing to all audiences - Katherine Quinton, K-12 Teacher, Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada Thank you for coming to Brandon! I have enjoyed many Spikey performances and no two are ever exactly the same. Love the diversity!! My 3 year old granddaughter had fun and lasted at least 45 minutes and after a little activity break was able to enjoy the final song reaching to the sky : ) She loved the audience participation. My 29 year old daughter in law thought it was humorous. My 80 year old mom enjoyed it and like myself, was so impressed with the rhyme and music with so much meaning!! So it really is a generational presentation with something for everyone!! Best of all, it promotes such great values!!

The Upper Necaxa Totonac Dictionary represents to-date the most extensive collection of lexical material for any member of the Totonac-Tepehua family and the only such record for this previously-undescribed polysynthetic language, currently spoken in two principal dialects by some 3,400 people, mainly adults, in the Sierra Norte of Puebla State, Mexico. As well as a short grammatical sketch, the dictionary comprises 9,000 lexical entries, including numerous fixed expressions, idioms, and ideophones; each lexical entry is accompanied by part-of-speech information and phonetic transcriptions as well as, where appropriate, dialectal information, grammatical notes (including plurals and classifiers for nouns), literal morpheme-by-morpheme glosses, example sentences, and cross-references to derived forms and semantically-related words. The accompanying DVD includes additional illustrative sentences, audio recordings of headwords and examples, and interlinear glosses for many of the sentences included in lexical entries. This book is the first Totonacan dictionary to be structured for the academic linguist, with special attention paid to the morphological structure of words and the organization of the Totonacan lexicon. Glosses are constructed so as to reflect the underlying complement-structure of words, with careful indication of the number of arguments required by particular lexical items, and all verbs are classified by dynamicity and valency. This dictionary is of interest to linguists working on American indigenous languages, as well as those concerned with the structure of morphologically complex words and the role of derivation in the lexicon of polysynthetic languages. It is also of use to historical linguists and Mesoamericanists interested in the reconstruction of the pre-Columbian history and ethnogeography of Mexico.

These volumes replace the 1933 Supplement to the OED. The vocabulary treated is that which came into use during the publication of the successive sections of the main Dictionary -- that is, between 1884, when the first fascicle of the letter A was published, and 1928, when the final section of the Dictionary appeared -- together with accessions to the English language in Britain and abroad from 1928 to the present day. Nearly all the material in the 1933 Supplement has been retained here, though in revised form (Preface).

This second volume reporting on the excavations at the site of the `Unexplored Mansion' describes all the structures and finds that are later than Minoan. The substantial deposits that range between Minoan and Hellenistic are mainly pits, wells and wash levels with little remaining of the buildings with which they were associated; for the Hellenistic and Roman periods, until the third century AD, there are substantial remains of a succession of buildings. These provide a context for the large quantity of finds whose description takes up the bulk of the report. Pottery: sub-Minoan (M R Popham), early Hellenic (J N Coldstream), Archaic to Hellenistic (P J Callaghan), Roman pottery, amphorae and sigillata stamps (L H Sackett); lamps (H W & E A Catling); coins (M J Price); plaster sculptures (G B Waywell); terracottas (R A Higgins); metal objects (K Branigan); bone objects (L H Sackett); glass vessels (J Price). The enormous number of drawings and photos supporting the description of these finds will ensure that this becomes a valuable work of reference.

1961. A squadron of Vulcan aircraft, Britain's most lethal nuclear bomber, flies towards the east coast of the United States. Highly manoeuvrable, the great delta-winged machines are also equipped with state of the art electronic warfare devices that jam American radar systems. Evading the fighters scrambled to intercept them, the British aircraft target Washington and New York, reducing them to smoking ruins. They would have done, at least, if this were not an exercise. This extraordinary raid (which actually took place) opens James Hamilton-Paterson's remarkable novel about the lives of British pilots at the height of the Cold War, when aircrew had to be on call 24 hours a day to fly their nuclear-armed V-bombers to the Western USSR and devastate the lives of millions. This is the story of Squadron-Leader Amos McKenna, a Vulcan pilot who is suffering from desires and frustrations that are tearing his marriage apart and making him question his ultimate loyalties. Relations with the American cousins are tense; the future of the RAF bomber fleet is in doubt. And there is a spy at RAF Wearsby, who is selling secrets to his Russian handlers in seedy East Anglian cafes. A macabre Christmas banquet at which aircrew under intolerable pressures go crazy, with tragic consequences, and a dramatic and disastrous encounter with the Americans in the Libyan desert, are among the high points of a novel that surely conveys the beauty and danger of flying better than any other in recent English literature.
