A factory supercharged Ford Mustang had long been on the wish list of muscle car fans, but it took the passion of a single man to make it happen: O. John Coletti. And that was one name in the Ford Motor Company phone book guaranteed to stir up differing opinions among the huge auto manufacturer’s upper management. Maverick or visionary? Tyrant or leader? One thing was certain about the mercurial Coletti: he had an unswerving faith in the value of high performance. And after almost single-handedly rescuing the Ford Mustang from discontinuation via a covert, renegade program, Coletti rode his notoriety into his own throne within Ford. He would go on to be head of the elite Special Vehicle Team, but in late 2000, Coletti stretched the boundaries of his own legend, abruptly canceling the division’s highly-anticipated 2002 Mustang Cobra while disrupting marketing plans and enraging SVT’s network of dealers. This is the untold story of how Coletti’s performance mandate led to the creation of a car known as the "Terminator", the 2003-4 Ford SVT Mustang Cobra. How did a major American auto manufacturer secretly create a vehicle that turned the performance world on its ear? Iron Fist, Lead Foot takes readers deep behind the scenes for the answers.

Does a planet in a sign have the same meaning in every horoscope? Yes and no. Although everyone with a specific planet in a specific sign shares common characteristics, each displays subtle differences depending upon what degree the planet occupies within that sign. These differences explain why, for example, one person with Mercury in Capricorn is practical and another is more creative or family-oriented, or has a strong desire to be in the spotlight. Both the three decanates (the ten-degree divisions of each sign) and the twelve duads (the two and a half-degree divisions of each sign) reveal sign characteristics specific to the individual, each of which is defined by the degree of the planet in the sign. Using decanates and duads, you can discover much more about every planet in the horoscope, as well as the signs on the angles3/4the Midheaven, IC, Ascendant and Descendant. And this, in turn, will lead to new insights into relationships, career choice, communication style, finances and life purpose and goal

This book guides the reader on a rational pathway from anamnesis and clinical examination (with supporting illustrations), through radiological screening to the appropriate surgical solution. Proposed treatments and treatment results at about one year of follow-up are described in detail with the aid of intra- and postoperative photographs and radiographs. The text is limited to systematic description, and numerous references are included to the earlier parts of the book in order to clearly link the preoperative evaluation to the treatment. It is particular to the surgical correction of foot and ankle pathology that the treatment is nearly always "composite" or complex, in that it entails several separate actions. Thus, surgical correction often has one or more structural components (e.g., osteotomy, arthrodesis) and one or more functional or motor components. It is the aim of the book to explain the effect and rationale of every one of these single “actions”.

In this lively work, Beatrice K. Otto takes us on a journey around the world in search of one of the most colorful characters in history—the court jester. Though not always clad in cap and bells, these witty, quirky characters crop up everywhere, from the courts of ancient China and the Mogul emperors of India to those of medieval Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas. With a wealth of anecdotes, jokes, quotations, epigraphs, and illustrations (including flip art), Otto brings to light little-known jesters, highlighting their humanizing influence on people with power and position and placing otherwise remote historical figures in a more idiosyncratic, intimate light. Most of the work on the court jester has concentrated on Europe; Otto draws on previously untranslated classical Chinese writings and other sources to correct this bias and also looks at jesters in literature, mythology, and drama. Written with wit and humor, Fools Are Everywhere is the most comprehensive look at these roguish characters who risked their necks not only to mock and entertain but also to fulfill a deep and widespread human and social need.

Rural America is struggling. Family agriculture is fading, and prime farmland is often converted into environmentally harmful applications. But food cultivation has ecological consequences, too. Farms consume 80 percent of the nation's water. Although they often prevent sprawling development, improve water quality, or provide wildlife habitat, they also pollute rivers, drain wetlands, or emit greenhouse gasses. Don Stuart thinks two dangerous trends--the loss of farms and damage to ecosystems--are linked, and a major cause is political deadlock between farmers and activists. He offers a radical proposal: collaboration. To promote empathy and point out the costs of continued political impasse, he presents opposing views. Topics include incentives, regulations, environmental markets, growth management, climate change, and more. Drawing from a lifetime spent settling conflicts, he identifies features of successful community programs to suggest a model for a prosperous, healthy future.
