Yes, it is a true story; I have actually found the creature of legend that many refer to as Bigfoot. I like to call them Georgies though. Bigfoot is really just an adjective describing a body part, not a name. Plus the plural form of the word as such doesn't make sense. I mean, why would society accept a species with an illegitimate name? These highly intelligent, super-elusive wild primates possess supernatural strength, speed, and power. They truly are rulers over the food chain in the animal kingdom. Georgie just stuck for me as a name after an expedition with the KBFRO (Kentucky Bigfoot Research Organization) in which a little girl had showed up and referred to these creatures as such. When I first heard this, I instantly thought of Curious George, the pet monkey from the kids' books. Then I later found out that she was comparing these animals to George of the Jungle, the man who was raised in the jungle by monkeys. Then when you factor in all the evidence of these creatures from the Chattahoochee watershed, the name Georgie just seems fitting. Now this is only a nickname for these beasts of the Southeast. After studying the videos from my trail cameras frame by frame, I've came to the conclusion that these animals resemble a cross between a bear and a gorilla. On the other hand some of my good friends think they look like werewolves. Taking all this into consideration, I've decided to officially name these relatively undiscovered creatures Bewerearillas! These animals are 100 percent real, and people should beware because they are killers.

This collection of classic essays in feminist body studies investigates the history of the image of the female body; from the medical 'discovery' of the clitoris, to the 'body politic' of Queen Elizabeth I, to women deprecated as 'Hottentot Venuses' in the nineteenth century. The text look atthe way in which coverings bear cultural meaning: clothing reform during the French Revolution, Islamic veiling, and the invention of the top hat; as well as the embodiment of cherished cultural values in social icons such as the Statue of Liberty or the Barbie doll. By considering culture as itdefines not only women but also men, this volume offers both the student and the general reader an insight into the interdisciplinary and cross-cultural study involved in feminist body studies.

View: 432

The Concise Book of Yoga Anatomy is the definitive guide to the study of yoga anatomy--a perfect companion book for any yoga teacher or practitioner seeking to understand the biomechanics of the body as it applies to yoga practice. The book is visually designed in quick reference format to offer useful information about the main skeletal muscles that are central to yoga, with asanas to demonstrate the particular muscles and muscle groups. Over 230 full color illustrations detail each muscle's origin, insertion, and action in order to clearly reveal how the muscles come into play in the movements and postures of yoga. Knowledge of yoga anatomy is paramount to the ability to teach or practice with no injury to oneself or others. With this foundation in place, it is possible to focus on the spiritual element of yoga as well as the physical. Yoga is a union of the two, so where appropriate, the more profound side of the practice is mentioned as it relates to the body. The Concise Book of Yoga Anatomy illustrates the form and function of the muscles first, then interlays the muscles into the yoga posture for full understanding in a clear and integrated way, explaining the technique of the asanas, as well as other important aspects of yoga: pranayamas, the bandhas, and chakras. Table of Contents About This Book 1 Anatomical Orientation 2 Muscles of Respiration 3 Muscles of the Face and Neck 4 Muscles of the Spine 5 The Deep Core and Pelvic Floor 6 Muscles of the Shoulder and Upper Arm 7 Muscles of the Forearm and Hand 8 Muscles of the Hip 9 Muscles of the Knee 10 Muscles of the Ankle/Foot Resources General Index Index of Muscles From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Berthouville Silver Treasure and Roman Luxury

In 1830 a farmer plowing a field near the village of Berthouville in Normandy, France, discovered a trove of ancient Roman silver objects weighing some 55 pounds (25 kilograms). The Berthouville treasure, as the find came to be known, includes two statuettes representing the Gallo-Roman god Mercury and approximately sixty vessels—bowls, cups, pitchers, and plates, many of which bear votive inscriptions—along with dozens of smaller components and fragments. Dedicated to Mercury by various individuals, the treasure, including some of the finest ancient Roman silver to survive, fortunately escaped being melted down. It was acquired by the Cabinet des médailles et antiques of the Bibliothèque Royale (now the Département des Monnaies, médailles et antiques of the Bibliothèque nationale de France), where it was displayed until late 2010, when it was brought in its entirety to the Getty Villa together with four large, late antique silver plates, each with its own colorful history, for comprehensive conservation treatment. This sumptuously illustrated volume is published to accompany an exhibition of the same name, opening at the Getty Villa on November 18, 2014. It presents the highlights of the treasure and other Roman luxury arts from the holdings of the Cabinet des médailles—including precious gems, jewelry, gold coins, and colored marbles—and contextualizes them in a series of elucidating essays.

My Big Toe

My Big TOE, written by a nuclear physicist in the language of contemporary Western culture, unifies science and philosophy, physics and metaphysics, mind and matter, purpose and meaning, the normal and the paranormal. The entirety of human experience (mind, body, and spirit) including both our objective and subjective worlds, are brought together under one seamless scientific understanding. If you have a logical, open, and inquisitive mind - an attitude of scientific pragmatism that appreciates the elegance of fundamental truth and the thrill of breakthrough - you will enjoy this journey of personal and scientific discovery. Based upon careful scientific research and logical deduction, this is a book for all who have an interest in the nature of the reality in which they exist. My Big TOE is not only about scientific theory, function, process, and discovery - but also speaks to each individual reader about their innate capabilities. Readers will learn to appreciate that their human potential stretches far beyond the limitations of the physical universe. This trilogy delivers the next major scientific conceptual breakthrough since relativity and quantum mechanics raised scientific eyebrows in the first half of the twentieth century. No catch, no megalomania, no hypothetical wackiness, no goofy beliefs, no unusual assumptions - just straightforward science that better describes the totality of our experience and provides a wealth of practical results and new understanding that can be applied personally and professionally by scientists and nonscientists alike. This is the real thing. My Big TOE is about life, purpose, personal significance, physics, evolution, and the reason why. The acronym "TOE" is a standard term in the physics community that stands for "Theory Of Everything." Such a theory has been the "Holy Grail" of physicists for more than fifty years. My Big TOE delivers the solution to that scientific quest at the layman's level with precision and clarity. This book is an adventure into the overlapping worlds of science, philosophy, and metaphysics. It is tightly analytical and logical as all good works of science and philosophy should be, while at the same time down to earth, easily understandable, and full of good humor. No leaps of faith or beliefs of any sort are required to get to where these books will take you. Campbell did not put the "My" in My Big TOE to flaunt pride of authorship. Nor does the "My" indicate any lack of generality or applicability to others. The "My" was added to be a constant reminder to you that this reality model cannot serve as your personal Big TOE until it is based upon your personal experience. On the other hand, personal or subjective experience is only one piece of the reality puzzle. In the objective physical world of traditional science, My Big TOE delivers a comprehensive model of reality that subsumes modern science, describes our objective material reality, and is universally applicable. Contemporary physics is shown to be a special case of a more general set of basic principles.Physics is in the business of modeling reality. General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, and currently String Theory have all unsuccessfully tried to produce an overarching model of our objective reality. In the physics community, these one-theory-explains-all reality models are called TOEs. This particular TOE is Big because it successfully integrates metaphysics and physics into a single unified big-picture view of our larger reality. The My Big TOE trilogy provides a rational, logically consistent Theory Of Everything, develops the required new paradigms to support that theory, constructs a solid scientific foundation for future explorations to be built upon, and explains the interfaces and connections between newly derived knowledge and the existing database of scientific and personal experience. It subsumes physics, redeems philosophy, and explains many objective as well as subjective phenomena. Within My Big TOE, the physical universe and consciousness are fully integrated into a single scientific, tightly logical exposition that encompasses the subjective as well as the objective, the normal as well as the paranormal, the whole of your experience body, mind, and spirit. The My Big TOE reality model will help you understand your life, your purpose, all of the reality you experience, how that reality works, and how you might interact most profitably with it.The author, in addition to his ongoing career in a traditional hard science, spent almost thirty years carefully researching altered states of consciousness both in and out of formal laboratory settings. With one foot in the world of physics and the other firmly planted in the scientific exploration of consciousness, Campbell is in a unique position to accomplish the synthesis required to bring all the disparate pieces of science together into a coherent scientific whole. My Big TOE is the result of this unusual dual career in both physics and parapsychology. Most readers find these books to be non-technical, lively, full of humor and good fun, as well as personally challenging and enlightening. The My Big TOE trilogy is hard hitting, personal, controversial, and full of new ways of viewing familiar things. It will make you laugh, wince, and reconsider what you thought you knew about almost everything. This book is guaranteed to annoy, anger, and offend some, as well as illuminate and emancipate others. It will turn your personal reality upside down and inside out as it unites mind, body, and spirit in one overarching scientific model. Our objective physical reality is shown to be just one piece of the larger puzzle of existence. This reality model provides a sound theoretical basis for understanding many of the scientific, technical, and philosophical enigmas that have been nagging at the minds of scientists and scholars for decades. Even more importantly, My Big TOE provides the scientific basis for finally answering many of the most unfathomable and pressing personal questions that have challenged human understanding since time immemorial since men and women first stared into a starlit sky and wondered who and why they were. After reading My Big TOE, one will understand both the universal and the personal (subjective) nature of consciousness, reality, and Big TOEs. One will learn to appreciate the fact that the larger reality extends beyond objective causality, beyond the reach of purely intellectual effort, into the personal subjective mind of each individual. The concepts in this book will initiate, and be the catalyst for, serious scientific and philosophical discussions in the fields of psychology, physics, philosophy, mathematics, evolution, and biology, as well as religion, theology, metaphysics, ontology, epistemology, and cosmology. The author chooses to first publish these ground breaking concepts in a trade publication rather than a technical journal because of their potential importance to every individual, and because the nature of the material (like Darwins theory of evolution, for example) requires broad explanations spanning multiple academic disciplines. Because this material must develop entirely new scientific and reality paradigms, it requires a substantial intellectual and logical presentation to shed light upon the limitations of normal culturally habituated patterns of thought a goal that cannot be reached both quickly and effectively. This journey will take you to the beginning of time. It will dive deeply into the human heart as well as probe the limits of the human mind. My Big TOE will redefine the significance of you, and provide new meaning to your existence. It will help you realize and optimize your potential as well as provide you with a wholly new, fully integrated, scientific understanding of both your inside and outside world. My Big TOE, written by a scientist from a Western technological viewp

Now in its sixth edition, The Physiology of the Joints Volume Two - The Lower Limb is illustrated in full colour, rewritten and enriched with new text. Conceived and written over forty years ago, it has brought back to centre stage biomechanics, which previously was dismissed as anecdotal in works on human anatomy. As a result of this impetus every work on anatomy nowadays covers in depth the functional features of the locomotor apparatus; in short, biomechanics has become a science that cannot be ignored. This book will be a valuable text for manual therapists, physical therapists, massage therapists, and osteopaths interested in the biomechanics of the human body. A synoptic diagram showing the factors affecting the stability of the knee Explanation of the presence of two bones in the leg, based on an understanding of the functional anatomy of the ankle The idea of the universal joint as applicable to the ankle-hindfoot articular complex The vital concept of viewing the leg as "compartments" A new chapter on the physiology of walking A synoptic table of the nerves of the lower limb Appendix with updated mechanical models of three-dimensional diagrams that can be assembled, providing a teaching tool for student and teacher alike
