The Ancient Olympic Games

The Games [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Ancient Olympic Games by Judith Swaddling Book Resume:

For over one thousand years between 776 B.C. and A.D. 395, princes, statesmen, and famous athletes gathered every four years at Olympia in western Greece to compete for the olive crowns of the ancient Olympic Games. Judith Swaddling traces the mythological and religious origins of the games and describes the events, religious ceremony, and celebrations that were an essential part of the Olympic festival. The book also features a large, detailed model of the site of ancient Olympia, where, alongside religious and civic buildings, there grew an elaborate sports complex with a stadium for 40,000 spectators, indoor and outdoor training facilities, hot and cold baths, a swimming pool, and a race course. For this revised edition, three new chapters have been added, covering the diet and medical treatment of athletes; sponsorship, patronage, and propaganda; and revivals of the games. Superbly illustrated with vases, sculpture, and other works of ancient art, and with new views of the site, the new edition of this indispensable account of Ancient Olympia and the games now includes color reproduction for over half the illustrations, as well as many additional pictures.

Part I introduces the innovative Play Practice approach and explains how it can lead to more effective coaching and teaching. Part II applies Play Practice to a great variety of games and describes specific approaches to improving technical ability and developing game sense. Part III discusses techniques the sports educator can use to make the Play Practice approach most effective. The book's 50 illustrations and 20 photos demonstrate specific approaches to games as well as ideas that can work for multiple games. These features will help you visualize how to apply the Play Practice approach with beginners as well as elite players in sports as diverse as skiing and tennis. This book will challenge your thinking about how sports should be taught, help you reassess your own methods, and provide a new and versatile model you can apply with great success--one practice, one game at a time.

The Games People Play

The Games [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Games People Play by Robert Ellis Book Resume:

In The Games People Play, Robert Ellis constructs a theology around the global cultural phenomenon of modern sport, paying particular attention to its British and American manifestations. Using historical narrative and social analysis to enter the debate on sport as religion, Ellis shows that modern sport may be said to have taken on some of the functions previously vested in organized religion. Through biblical and theological reflection, he presents a practical theology of sport's appeal and value, with special attention to the theological concept of transcendence. Throughout, he draws on original empirical work with sports participants and spectators. The Games People Play addresses issues often considered problematic in theological discussions of sport such as gender, race, consumerism, and the role of the modern media, as well as problems associated with excessive competition and performance-enhancing substances. As Ellis explains, Sporting journalists often use religious language in covering sports events. Salvation features in many a headline, and talk of moments of redemption is not uncommon. Perhaps, somewhere beyond the cliched hyperbole, there is some theological truth in all this after all.

The Games Black Girls Play

The Games [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Games Black Girls Play by Kyra D. Gaunt Book Resume:

2007 Alan Merriam Prize presented by the Society for Ethnomusicology 2007 PEN/Beyond Margins Book Award Finalist When we think of African American popular music, our first thought is probably not of double-dutch: girls bouncing between two twirling ropes, keeping time to the tick-tat under their toes. But this book argues that the games black girls play —handclapping songs, cheers, and double-dutch jump rope—both reflect and inspire the principles of black popular musicmaking. The Games Black Girls Play illustrates how black musical styles are incorporated into the earliest games African American girls learn—how, in effect, these games contain the DNA of black music. Drawing on interviews, recordings of handclapping games and cheers, and her own observation and memories of gameplaying, Kyra D. Gaunt argues that black girls' games are connected to long traditions of African and African American musicmaking, and that they teach vital musical and social lessons that are carried into adulthood. In this celebration of playground poetry and childhood choreography, she uncovers the surprisingly rich contributions of girls’ play to black popular culture.

The Games of July

The Games [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Games of July by Frank C. Zagare Book Resume:

"Seldom does one see a game-theoretic approach as carefully applied to the puzzling decisions of 1914. Zagare's theory allows us to understand the beginnings of World War I from a different and unified perspective while also challenging more traditional approaches to international relations." ---Glenn Palmer, Penn State World War I plays a central role in many of the theoretical debates among scholars of international politics. Taking advantage of recent advances in game theory and the latest historiography, Frank Zagare offers a new and provocative interpretation of the events that led to the outbreak of a world war in August 1914. He analyzes key events from Bismarck's surprising decision in 1879 to enter a strategic alliance with Austria-Hungary; to the British attempt to ensure peace; to the German invasion of Belgium and France; and finally, to the escalation that culminated in a full-scale global war. Zagare concludes that, while the war was most certainly unintended, it was in no sense accidental. Along the way, key decision makers in all the pertinent capitals made calculated choices that may have been wrongheaded but that were also rational. Yet, until the very end, the war was not inevitable. There were alternative rational courses that did not necessarily imply conflict. With different leaders or with different policies, the war could have been averted. The Games of July serves not only as an analytical narrative but also as a work of theoretical assessment employing various realist explanations along with a collection of game-theoretic models known as Perfect Deterrence Theory. Frank C. Zagare is Professor of Political Science at the State University of New York, Buffalo.

Winning the Games Scientists Play

The Games [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Winning the Games Scientists Play by C.J. Sindermann Book Resume:

The interpersonal strategies that surround the act of doing good science--hereafter referred to as scientific game play ing-have received some published attention, and many of the game rules are almost axiomatic among successful prac titioners of science. There is a need, however, to review pe riodically what we know and what we think we know about the art, and to add new insights that become available. This book is a response to that need; it has been written for science practitioners and grandstanders of the 1980s, drawing on in Sights and perceptions gained from victories and defeats of the 1970s. It seems especially important that the strategies and rules of scientific game playing be reviewed critically as we move into the decade of the 1980s, since many of those rules have changed during the 1970s--in fact each recent decade has seen significant changes. The 1950s were expansionist, when sci entific jobs were relatively easy to find, when faculties were expanding, when students were plentiful, and when federal grants were readily available. The 1960s began as a period of stabilization, and then became one of unrest and reexami nation of purpose. The climate was still good; students were v vi PREFACE still abundant, but there was less growth in faculty size, and federal grants reached a plateau. In the 1970s the student population started to decline, and federal funding for research began to dry up.

Her journey has been fascinating and exciting even through adversity and obstacles but her strength and desire to make a positive contribution to society has been great! She reflects often on the words of her beautiful belated mother, Evangelist Irene Williams, Hang in There! Sandra also remembers the teachings and principles of her father, Pastor E.G. Williams and the constant faith and dedication exhibited by him. Within this research design book, it was Sandra's goal to try and reach out to as many persons possible involved in the care of the young athlete in a timely matter to support safety and education. This study was designed to look at the areas of concussions and head injuries from a different angle and to shed light in the areas of needed improvement because everyone should remain current with up-to-date facts; education is the key to success and prevention. It was also a goal of Mrs. Merriweather to dedicate this unique project to our former and present athletes for sports fans to remember their dedication, contributions, and support to our children as we say, Thank You!

Culture Consciousness and the Games of God by Nick Nickolds Book Resume:

The Holy Bible has long been one of the top selling books in the world. People view the Bible in many different ways. While Christians consider it to be the divine written Word of God, others consider it to be just another book. Regardless of how you view the Bible, it does set forth some pragmatic concepts about money and how it should be perceived. Money is obviously an important topic in the Bible since it is mentioned about three times more often than sin, four times more often than prayerand six times more often than the second coming of Jesus Christ! In fact, almost half of Jesus' parables were about money. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader some basic ideas and principles for investing and managing money as presented throughout the Bible.
