Life and its experiences are something that we can all look at and no matter what the experience, relate it to ourselves. Doing this helps us to cope and deal with the things that we have going on in our minds and are unsure what to think about them. A Breath Of Fresh Ayr is a collection of writings and thoughts, my way of expressing my troubles, trials, and tribulations, as well as my triumphs, testaments, and tutelage. Everyone in life loves, has felt love, and has felt the pain from the love once it’s gone. Everyone has lost someone, found someone, lost themselves, and somewhere along the journey, regained their mentality peace by piece. Within these pages are the pieces of mentality, and while I still search for my peace of mind, I hope you enjoy these pieces of it.

Twelve thousand years ago, heroes and antagonists were made. Civilizations were starting to flourish. Within their social structures there was love, honor, and friendship. On the other side of the spectrum, there was also greed, fear, and power. Within the last one hundred years, archeologists and paleontologists unearthed a new world. After the Ice age, archeologists discovered civilizations with architectural buildings and commerce. Paleontologists have proof of animals which were not like we are accustomed to today. They have uncovered giant sloths, mammoths, giant rhinos, and giant elk, all living amongst the civilizations before written history. So far, Atlantis is a legend. In those legends there had to be a leader and hero that brought Atlantis together. The story of Atlandreous unfolds as Duncan, a present day archeologist, visions the beginning of the Atlantean Empire.

Edinburgh is forever bound to The Royal Scots, the oldest in the British Army and now part of The Royal Regiment of Scotland. For a period in the early twentieth century, it also had a Highland battalion, the kilted 9th Royal Scots, which became affectionately known as the Dandy Ninth. The battalion was formed in the aftermath of the Boer War’s Black Week. It sent volunteers to South Africa and established itself as Edinburgh’s kilted battalion, part of the Territorial Force of part-time soldiers. Mobilised in 1914 as part of the Lothian Brigade, they defended Edinburgh and environs from the threat of invasion, and constructed part of the landward defences around Liberton Tower. They were part-time soldiers and new recruits, drawn from the breadth of society but with a strong representation of lawyers and included a number of Scotland rugby players and artists, such as the Scottish Colourist F.C.B. Cadell, and William Geissler of the Edinburgh School. A remarkably high proportion of the battalion received commissions and served in many branches of the armed forces, and in many theatres. In the Great War they mobilised to France and Flanders and served in many of the major actions: in Ypres in both the Sedon and Third (Passchendaele) Battles of Ypres as well as in the Battle of the Lys in 1918; on the Somme 1916 at High Wood and the Ancre (Beaumont Hamel), at Arras 1917 (Vimy Ridge); at Cambrai 1917 (Fontaine); and during the 1918 German Spring Offensive at St Quentin and at the Battle of Soissonais-Ourcq. They were with the 15th (Scottish) Division in the Advance to Victory. Some 6,000 men passed through the ranks of the Dandy Ninth and over a thousand never returned.

Dax Daley is no superhero. But then, neither are his other classmates. At least they're not heroes YET - that's what they're being taught at Scragmoor Prime, a school for children with special powers. Dax would much rather explore the creepy chapel outside the school grounds - the one with the eerie painted people on the wall - than try to be a hero. But the chapel walls hide a dark secret... and Dax discovers that Scragmoor's previous criminal inmates aren't quite as dead as he'd hoped.

Laughing in the Shadow of Bullets is almost a four decades long ring side as also the grand stand view of the Army Life as seen, heard and experienced by a lady married to an Army Officer—an Infantry Soldier. She recounts and recapitulates various hilarious incidents along with their manifestations and that apart from making you laugh bring to fore the unmistakable spirit to do or die that can be vividly seen only among these men of arms who are always ready to ‘slay or sacrifice’ when the trumpet blows and duty calls. These pages in your hands thus afford you an introduction; a familiarisation to your Army. The narratives are primarily aimed at making you smile and are an attempt to dilute the adverse impact of contemporary interminable assault of tension on our collective life style.

Sources of Vietnamese Tradition provides an essential guide to two thousand years of Vietnamese history and a comprehensive overview of the society and state of Vietnam. Strategic selections illuminate key figures, issues, and events while building a thematic portrait of the country's developing territory, politics, culture, and relations with neighbors. The volume showcases Vietnam's remarkable independence in the face of Chinese and other external pressures and respects the complexity of the Vietnamese experience both past and present. The anthology begins with selections that cover more than a millennium of Chinese dominance over Vietnam (111 B.C.E.–939 C.E.) and follows with texts that illuminate four centuries of independence ensured by the Ly, Tran, and Ho dynasties (1009–1407). The earlier cultivation of Buddhism and Southeast Asian political practices by the monarchy gave way to two centuries of Confucian influence and bureaucratic governance (1407–1600), based on Chinese models, and three centuries of political competition between the north and the south, resolving in the latter's favor (1600–1885). Concluding with the colonial era and the modern age, the volume recounts the ravages of war and the creation of a united, independent Vietnam in 1975. Each chapter features readings that reveal the views, customs, outside influences on, and religious and philosophical beliefs of a rapidly changing people and culture. Descriptions of land, society, economy, and governance underscore the role of the past in the formation of contemporary Vietnam and its relationships with neighboring countries and the West.

My days are numbered, and so I want you to know youre neither too bad nor bad enough to receive what some folks may have had planned for you. Some folks participate in control and use violence, oppression and the law of man to do criminal things to usually the innocent and/or those put in a defenceless position. They use their positions of authority to kill, maim and torture people who stray and for recourse swim in the blood of indifference. So, I wrote many books that puts their taboo on a short leash. So here we are toe to toe. Ive smoked packages of cigarettes a day far almost 40 years and have come to the conclusion that those whose mercy and trusting nature need a little more understanding because the fraud of the spiritually blind only meet out bogus control which when endured like a mouse is their cooperation. They cheat, they steal, they lie and they kill for this. So, enjoy it, this small fragment of unwavering hard core discipline that isnt afraid of neither anything nor anyone besides Christ Jesus when he is furious.

This book is open access and available on It is funded by Knowledge Unlatched. This innovative collection of essays on twenty-first century Chinese cinema and moving image culture features contributions from an international community of scholars, critics, and practitioners. Taken together, their perspectives make a compelling case that the past decade has witnessed a radical transformation of conventional notions of cinema. Following China's accession to the WTO in 2001, personal and collective experiences of changing social conditions have added new dimensions to the increasingly diverse Sinophone media landscape, and provided a novel complement to the existing edifice of blockbusters, documentaries, and auteur culture. The numerous 'iGeneration' productions and practices examined in this volume include 3D and IMAX films, experimental documentaries, animation, visual aides-mémoires, and works of pirated pastiche. Together, they bear witness to the emergence of a new Chinese cinema characterized by digital and, trans-media representational strategies, the blurring of private/public distinctions, and dynamic reinterpretations of the very notion of 'cinema' itself.
