DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

*NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER* “A gripping journey.”—People The highly anticipated memoir from hip-hop icon Rick Ross chronicles his coming of age amid Miami’s crack epidemic, his star-studded controversies and his unstoppable rise to fame. Rick Ross is an indomitable presence in the music industry, but few people know his full story. Now, for the first time, Ross offers a vivid, dramatic and unexpectedly candid account of his early childhood, his tumultuous adolescence and his dramatic ascendancy in the world of hip-hop. Born William Leonard Roberts II, Ross grew up “across the bridge,” in a Miami at odds with the glitzy beaches, nightclubs and yachts of South Beach. In the aftermath of the 1980 race riots and the Mariel boatlift, Ross came of age at the height of the city’s crack epidemic, when home invasions and execution-style killings were commonplace. Still, in the midst of the chaos and danger that surrounded him, Ross flourished, first as a standout high school football player and then as a dope boy in Carol City’s notorious Matchbox housing projects. All the while he honed his musical talent, overcoming setback after setback until a song called “Hustlin’” changed his life forever. From the making of “Hustlin’” to his first major label deal with Def Jam, to the controversy surrounding his past as a correctional officer and the numerous health scares, arrests and feuds he had to transcend along the way, Hurricanes is a revealing portrait of one of the biggest stars in the rap game, and an intimate look at the birth of an artist.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Elsie MacGill achieved many firsts in science and engineering at a time when women were considered to be inferior in the sciences. In 1923, at the age of nineteen, she became the first woman to attend engineering classes at the University of Toronto. She was the first woman in North America to hold a degree in aeronautical engineering and the first woman aircraft designer in the world. As chief engineer for the Canadian Car and Foundry Company she oversaw the production of the Hawker Hurricane, and designed a series of modifications to equip the plain for cold weather flying. Her Maple Leaf trainer may still be the only plane ever to be completely designed by a woman. And she did all this while suffering from polio. In this biography we learn that she supervised 4500 workers and produced about 1450 Hawker Hurricanes by the end of WWII. Elsie was a popular heroine of her time, inspiring the comic book "Queen of the Hurricanes" in the 1940s. In later life she became a powerful feminist activist, advocating for the rights of women and children.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Recent studies suggest that tropical cyclones are more powerful than in the past with the most dramatic increase in the North Atlantic. The increase is correlated with an increase in ocean temperature. A debate concerns the nature of these increases with some scientists attributing them to a natural climate fluctuation and others suggesting climate change related to anthropogenic increases in forcing from greenhouse gases. A Summit on Hurricanes and Climate Change was held during the spring of 2007 on the island of Crete that brought together leading academics and researchers on both sides of the scientific debate to discuss new research and express opinions about what will happen in the future with regard to hurricane activity. This proceedings volume highlights the state-of-the-science research into various aspects of the hurricane-climate connection. It is likely that the science presented here will lead to new research that will help answer crucial questions about our sustainable future.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Every year, hurricanes seem to be increasingly severe and unpredictable, ensuring that they remain one of the most frequent topics of conversation in our everyday lives. The Great Bahamian Hurricanes of 1926 provides the perfect introduction to the complexities and dynamics of hurricanes. It focuses on how they develop, what causes them to be so powerful, the history behind them and how hurricanes affect us all. Wayne Neely tells the story of three of the worst natural catastrophes in the history of the Bahamas. However, this is not just the story of three big storms, but also of the many Bahamians who had to endure them. The individual stories of heroism and cowardice; tragedy and redemption vividly bring these storms to life. Each hurricane season brings with it a reminder that we are constantly subject to natural occurrences over which we have no control. Through unique historical photographs of actual damages from these three storms, this book shows the widespread devastation that these storms inflicted on the Bahamas. Drawing upon many newspaper accounts, ship reports and Family Island Commissioners reports from throughout the Bahamas, the author provides a fascinating glimpse of these hurricanes as they devastated the Bahamas.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

University of Miami football is more than national championships, 30-game winning streaks, and being a pipeline to the NFL. It's the Gator Flop, defeating Tulane on a fifth down, and playing three games in eight days. It's converting third and 44 against Notre Dame, Michael Irvin talking smack with Florida State's Deion Sanders, and Vinny Testaverde being sacked by hamburgers. It's the Jet Lag Kids playing seven road games in one season, including one in Tokyo, and it's the Ibis mascot being arrested on the field in Tallahassee and being nicked by a bullet on Bourbon Street. Tales from Miami Hurricanes Sideline is a collection of the greatest anecdotes and stories ever told about 'Canes football. Jim Martz, who has covered the team for more than three decades, chronicles the ups, downs, and sideways of this spirited program that has produced five national championship teams under four different coaches since 1983. They have won under charismatic and colorful coaches and under low-key coaches. More than anything, they have won with colorful players. In an age of parity and just a few years removed from the program nearly being dropped, the Hurricanes have defied the odds and become the dynasty of modern college football. Tales from Miami Hurricanes Sideline offers stories about Lou Saban trudging through a blizzard to recruit Jim Kelly, Howard Schnellenberger in suit and tie refusing to sweat on a sweltering Gainesville afternoon, and Dwayne (aka The Rock) Johnson sharing defensive line duties with Warren Sapp. There are also details about Schnellenberger's pipe and Jimmy Johnson's hair (and Larry Coker's lack thereof). There are tales about 30,000 fans storming the Miami airport togreet the team's return after an upset of Purdue and crowds of just 11,000 in the Orange Bowl when the program bottomed out and only two radio stations--one in English and one in Spanish--carried the games. It is a must-read for fans of the Hurricanes and all those who envy them.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Caught in the eye of a hurricane! Would you survive? Billy Gordon is fascinated by natural disasters. When a school assignment requires him to research a current event, he knows exactly what to write about: Hurricane Hazel, which is currently blasting the Caribbean. It's been in all the news reports and Billy's been following its progress closely. But after days of heavy rain Billy starts to get concerned that the Hurricane could strike close to home. His friends and family think he's overreacting. How could a hurricane strike Toronto when it's so far inland? Then on the night of October 15, the rain and wind intensify and Billy's home and that of his neighbours on Raymore Drive are flooded. Will they survive? Hurricane Hazel was a category 4 hurricane that struck Toronto on the night of October 15, 1954. Winds of 110 km/hour and 285 mm of rain over 48 hours hit Toronto. Thousands were left homeless. Eighty-one people died in Toronto when waterways flooded, thirty-five of them on Raymore Drive near the Humber River.
