A novel brimming with nonstop action, quirky characters, sexy highjinks, and sharp humor Welcome to Full Speed by Janet Evanovich and Charlotte Hughes. You'll fall in love with Jamie Swift and Max Holt, one dynamic duo who can't seem to escape trouble—and an irresistible attraction—as you follow them from one adventure to another. Newspaper editor Jamie Swift likes a little predictability in her life. When she suddenly finds herself minus a fiancé and with a major case of the hots for her silent partner, millionaire Maximillian Holt, any bit of predictability goes right out the window. Max is like a tornado, turning her well-ordered world upside down. Now someone's unhappy with Max's recent business deal—dangerously unhappy. Before she knows it, Jamie's hotfooting across state lines to help Max and land a story. But Sweet Pea, Tennessee harbors some smelly secrets, many of which reside under the big tent of revivalist Harlan Rawlins, whose link to the Almighty rides shotgun with his Mob connections. Posing as husband and wife, with computer genius Muffin and a mutt named Fleas along for the ride, Max and Jamie are in the middle of another crazy case, closer than ever to each other—and too close for comfort to the kind of people who will do anything to stop them.

Breathtaking swordplay and nostalgic love, Peking opera and Chow Yun-fat's cult followers -- these are some of the elements of the vivid and diverse urban imagination that find form and expression in the thriving Hong Kong cinema. All receive their due in At Full Speed, a volume that captures the remarkable range and energy of a cinema that borrows, invents, and reinvents across the boundaries of time, culture, and conventions. At Full Speed gathers film scholars and critics from around the globe to convey the transnational, multilayered character that Hong Kong films acquire and impart as they circulate worldwide. These writers scrutinize the films they find captivating: from the lesser known works of Law Man and Yuen Woo Ping to such film festival notables as Stanley Kwan and Wong Kar-wai, and from the commercial action, romance, and comedy genres of Jackie Chan, Peter Chan, Steven Chiau, Tsui Hark, John Woo, and Derek Yee to the attempted departures of Evans Chan, Ann Hui, and Clara Law. In this cinema the contributors identify an aesthetics of action, gender-flexible melodramatic excesses, objects of nostalgia, and globally projected local history and identities, as well as an active critical film community. Their work, the most incisive account ever given of one of the world's largest film industries, brings the pleasures and idiosyncrasies of Hong Kong cinema into clear close-up focus even as it enlarges on the relationships between art and the market, cultural theory and the movies.

On the football field, Sean Taylor was feared by opposing teams. Off the field, he was loved by those who knew him best, as well as his many fans. Tragically, Sean was killed in a home invasion gone wrong. However, “Going Full Speed, the Sean Taylor Stories” is not just about being at the wrong place at the wrong time. It's Sean’s father, Pedro “Pete” Taylor's recollection of raising, training, then losing his superstar son. But Sean Taylor was no saint. And in the words of his father, he wants to give readers "the good, the bad and the ugly." Sean Taylor touched many lives. In "Going Full Speed" you'll be touched by stories from family, friends, teammates, coaches, and the owner of the Washington Redskins and more. Thirty-three people in all share their favorite personal stories of the fallen superstar. You’ll “hear” from names such as University of Miami coaches Larry Coker, Curtis Johnson, Don Soldinger and teammates Buck Ortega and Jon Vilma. From the Washington Redskins, coaches Gregg Williams and Steve Jackson, teammates Santana Moss, Clinton Portis, Renaldo Wynn and team owner Daniel Snyder share their favorite anecdotes. Some stories are hilarious, some heartwarming, and some are heartbreaking. So you may want to read this book with a box of tissues close by. Highlights of the book include: - revelations, Sean stories never before told; - life lessons, talks that would serve Sean -- or frankly anyone -- well in life; and, - training tips, things Pete Taylor taught Sean in order to get his body and mind ready for school and competition. This book is a must have for football fans, Sean's fans, student athletes, and parents of athletes.

Joe Andoe is an internationally exhibited painter. His work, hailed by The New Yorker as "cowboy noir with a fashionista twist," is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Whitney Museum of Art in New York, and countless other locations. He is a father. He is a writer. He is sober. That's now. Once upon a time, though, way back in the '70s, Joe Andoe was a delinquent bad boy growing up wild in Tulsa, Oklahoma—drinking, drugging, and driving too fast down a dead-end road. He was one car crash, one overdose away from head-on disaster. His art saved him. A life story told in discrete, arresting snapshots of despair, resilience, creativity, and hope, Joe Andoe's raw, vivid, and utterly original memoir is as striking as his painting. With echoes of Jim Carroll poetic insight and Charles Bukowski grit, yet still uniquely the artist's own, Andoe's literary portrait of his time to date on earth is as powerful as a heavyweight's hook and as spellbinding as a major crack-up on the opposite side of the highway. It is an important work of curiosity and grandiosity; a testament to a young man's resilience and genius and luck that enabled him to survive a life lived wildly out of control; an unparalleled adventure, a rocket ride from the sordid depths of self-destruction to the glorious pinnacles of…Jubilee City

Motorsport and aerospace are two industries in which the United Kingdom is a world leader and the Committee believes that the future success of the UK economy will be based on these types of industries. Concerns regarding the aerospace included the current US complaint in the World Trade organisation and the Government's right to support the industry through Repayable Launch Investment; and that the UK aerospace sector has access to export trade credit at less favourable rates and through a more complex system than other countries. In examining the motorsport industry the Committee felt that there was a lack of understanding and effective engagement by Government. They are not content with the Government's current plans to take forward its work with the sector through the UK Automotive Council. Instead they recommend that the Government establish a dedicated motorsport policy team within the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Small and medium-sized enterprises also play a very important role in supporting both sectors but they have been hit worst by the recession and the Government needs to do more to encourage high performance engineering firms to diversify. Both sectors require a highly skilled workforce and more needs to be done to align the education system with the skills needs of the industries. Finally is the problem of the 'non-green' image that both industries have.
