Formula 50 by Book Summary:

Get fit like 50 Cent: The phenomenally fit superstar rapper reveals his strategic six-week workout plan for achieving a ripped body—and developing the mental toughness to stay in shape for a lifetime. Survival is a recurring theme of 50 Cent’s lyrics, and his life. That’s why, with obesity rates soaring and fitness levels declining, he wants to give everyone an all-access pass to his premium plan for lifelong fitness. In Formula 50, the mega-successful entertainer and entrepreneur unleashes the power of metabolic resistance training (MRT), the key ingredient that has helped him achieve the famously buff physique that makes his music videos sizzle. Through MRT, 50 Cent’s fitness plan breaks down the barriers between traditional weight training and cardio workouts, accelerating fat loss while building muscle and improving overall fitness. Designed for a six-week rollout for total mind-body transformation, the Formula 50 regimen builds willpower while it builds physical power. In addition to motivation, nutrition is another key element; readers will discover the unique dietary combinations that fuel 50 Cent’s workouts. Coauthored with Jeff O’Connell, health journalist and editor-in-chief at Bodybuilding.com (the world’s largest fitness website), the book delivers a payoff that goes beyond six-pack abs and flab-free pecs: This is a fitness plan that boosts energy, endurance, flexibility, and mobility. The result is a body you’ve always dreamed of—and the mindset to attain the rest of your dreams.

Bugatti Type 46/50 by Barrie Price Book Summary:

The Bugatti Type 46 was announced in the Autumn of 1929. A very large chassis of nearly 12 feet in length powered by an 8-cylinder engine of 5300cc was intended to be the basis of a superlative luxury car - and so it proved to be. Bodied by the greatest of European coachbuilders to the highest standards of quality and style for rich clientele, the Type 46 was in many ways a smaller Royale and the model was said to have been the favourite of Ettore Bugatti. Later an optional supercharger became available to create the 46S model. In 1930 the Bugatti Type 50 superseded the 46. The new model still used the 46's chassis and most of its running gear but featured a new high performance engine of just under 5-litres capacity. This supercharged unit gave the Type 50 very spirited performance (particularly for such a large, luxurious car) and placed the model firmly into the Grand Sport category. 1931 saw a team of Type 50s take part in the Le Mans 24 Hour race, but the cars were withdrawn before the race finished after Rost's car crashed, tragically killing a spectator in the process. In total, less than 500 Type 46 and 50 Bugattis were built, but, with the obvious exception of the Royale, these cars represented the pinnacle of luxury car manufacture for the famous Molsheim marque.

50 Years of Singapore and the United Nations by Tommy Koh,Li Lin Chang,Joanna Koh Book Summary:

In 2015, Singapore marks the 50th anniversary of its independence, and the United Nations (UN) the 70th anniversary of its founding. This book celebrates 50 years of a mutually beneficial relationship between Singapore and the UN. In the early years of Singapore's independence, the UN system provided Singapore with many benefits which were helpful in Singapore's journey from the Third World to the First. As Singapore has made progress in its developmental journey, it is now able to give back to the international community through programmes such as the Singapore Cooperation Programme (SCP), under which officials from developing countries are offered training in areas which are beneficial to their countries. Singapore has actively contributed to improving global governance and strengthening institutions that are important to the management of global issues at the UN, IMF, World Bank, IMO, etc. The Singapore Government has also sent its soldiers and police officers to participate in UN's peace-keeping and peace-making operations. This volume brings together 45 essays by Singaporeans who have made or are making important contributions to the work of the UN system. The reader will be able to learn about the UN as seen through the eyes of Singaporeans who have served as Ambassadors to the United Nations in New York and Geneva, the World Trade Organization, or as professional staff in the various specialised agencies, programmes and funds that are part of the UN. We hope that the life stories and experiences shared by the essayists will remind readers that although Singapore is a very small country, we are a good global citizen and have tried to make this a better world.

Do you want to reinvigorate your body and have a healthier lifestyle? For those of us over 50, losing weight can be a particular challenge and one that seems increasingly more difficult as we get older. Many men and women try all sorts of fad diets that really don't work and most fail and then regain any weight they lost. Sometimes we even put on more weight than before, leaving us in a yo-yo dieting cycle without end.

Like its name says, this diet is low in carbs, a moderate amount of protein, and high in fats. The main goal of the Ketogenic diet is ketosis. Ketosis is a natural process where fats stored in the liver break down into ketones, and they are consumed instead of carbohydrates to supply energy to the brain and the rest of the body. When this happens, the body becomes a fat-burning machine rather than relying on carbs for energy. In this Full Color Guide You will know that: - What is the keto diet - How keto is different from other diets - How does the ketogenic diet work? - How to know when you are in ketosis - Benefits of the keto diet for those over 50 - How does aging affect your nutritional needs? - How to start a keto diet when you are over 50 - What can you eat when you are over 50? - What you can't eat when you are over 50? - 28-day keto meal plan for people over 50 - And much more!

50 Mindful Steps to Self-Esteem by Janetti Marotta Book Summary:

Sometimes we all need a little lift—something to put the bounce back in our step. If you are like many, you may struggle with self-confidence. You may also compare your successes and failures with those of others. If everything is going well in your life, this tactic may temporarily bolster your sense of self-worth. But what happens when things aren’t going so well? Based on the idea that true self-esteem is grounded in internal, rather than external factors, this book offers 50 easy-to-use mindfulness practices that will help you improve inner awareness and live a more fulfilled life without harsh self-judgment. Mindfulness can help you battle feelings of low self-worth by encouraging you to pay attention to your negative thoughts as they occur, accept them, and ultimately control of how you react to them. The exercises in this pocket-sized book are intended to be simple, brief, and powerful. These are practices to settle into each morning, perhaps before your cup of tea or coffee, and which can be sprinkled throughout the day when you are at work, play, or home. To help you keep track of your thoughts, the book also includes journaling exercises that will help you discover what actions may have led to feelings of positivity or negativity. By focusing on your own awareness and thought processes, you will begin to understand what factors cause you to feel bad about yourself, and honestly assess those factors without giving in to feelings of hopelessness. You will discover that true self-esteem has less to do with what the world is telling you, and has everything to do with what you tell yourself.

Based on the idea that true self-esteem is grounded in internal, rather than external factors, this book offers 50 easy-to-use mindfulness practices that will help you improve inner awareness and live a more fulfilled life without harsh self-judgment. Mindfulness can help you battle feelings of low self-worth by encouraging you to pay attention to your negative thoughts as they occur, accept them, and ultimately control of how you react to them. The exercises in this pocket-sized book are intended to be simple, brief, and powerful. These are practices to settle into each morning, perhaps before your cup of tea or coffee, and which can be sprinkled throughout the day when you are at work, play, or home. To help you keep track of your thoughts, the book also includes journaling exercises that will help you discover what actions may have led to feelings of positivity or negativity. By focusing on your own awareness and thought processes, you will begin to understand what factors cause you to feel bad about yourself, and honestly assess those factors without giving in to feelings of hopelessness. You will discover that true self-esteem has less to do with what the world is telling you, and has everything to do with what you tell yourself.

Bitcoin: Ayn Rand was wrong, Atlas never shrugged: A 50 year old dream by SAADETTİN KONUKSEVEN,TUNA ÖZEN Book Summary:

In Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, all the people who work, contribute and produce start disappearing one by one as a result of the government attempting to take over all lines of work. These people are convinced to disappear by a man called John Galt. The whole country asks the same question, which also happens to be the motto for the book: “Who is John Galt?” Due to Bitcoin becoming so well-known and having regular appearances on headlines, everyone started looking for the creator of Bitcoin, who is still a mystery. Just like Atlas Shrugged, a similar question gnawed at the minds of people and made headlines: “Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?” Why did we start with such a prologue? Because you cannot understand Bitcoin without reading Ayn Rand and understanding Friedrich Hayek. Because every revolution has an ideal foundation. Even though Bitcoin is a software revolution, it is also an ideal one. A revolution with roots reaching to the first days of humanity. A revolution that will take humans back to their essence. A revolution that may bring "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal", as Ayn Rand calls it. Bitcoin is a revolution against all third parties whom we believe to be trustworthy. It is a revolution against governments, banks, land registry offices, notaries and all intermediaries. It may very well be the foundation of a new world where only those who produce will rise, where borders will disappear; the utopia founded by John Galt for the hard-working people. The media did not say that a revolution has happened when the French Revolution occurred in 1789. People didn't start thinking, “the concept of nation state is born and a new era has begun.” Only after 100-150 years it was understood that this movement was a revolution that marked the end of an era and the beginning of a new one. Ayn Rand was wrong. Atlas never shrugged!

Defenses of Pearl Harbor and Oahu 1907–50 by Glen Williford,Terrance McGovern Book Summary:

At the beginning of the 20th century, the military importance of the Hawaiian Islands became clear. Oahu in particular was a key bastion in projecting America's military power in the Pacific. The island was turned into a military fortress and yet it also became the site of one of America's greatest defensive failures, the Japanese attack of December 7, 1941. By the end of World War II, the harbor itself was the most heavily defended in the world, and the island had earned the sobriquet "Fortress Oahu". This title documents the development of the coastal, air and land defense systems that served to protect Pearl Harbor and Honolulu from 1907 to 1950, and seeks to understand why these failed at a critical point.

50 Years Of Singapore's Productivity Drive by Woon Kin Chung,Loo Ya Lee Book Summary:

2017 marks the 50th year of Singapore's national productivity drive. This book provides a comprehensive account of the phases, milestones and activities of the productivity drive from its humble beginnings in 1967. The coverage ranges from the assistance that Singapore received through the United Nations Development Programme and the Japan–Singapore Productivity Development Project, to the national campaigns and programmes to build competencies in enterprises and the workforce. The various developments are placed in the context of the economic environment and the priorities of the country at different points in time.

English Electric Class 50 Diesels by Peter Green Book Summary:

Peter J Green first photographed Class 50 diesels in action in 1975, while they were still being transferred from the London Midland to the Western Region of British Rail. But it was in the early 1980s, when they were named and painted in Large Logo livery, that his interest in the class really took off. For Peter, they stood out from most other locomotives that were painted in the rather drab Rail Blue livery. The sound of the locomotives, particularly when running at speed, was also very impressive, producing shouts of '50!' from waiting photographers, even before the train was in sight. The class became a particular target for his railway photography and many of his trips were made with them in mind. They regularly worked trains around his home town of Worcester, so if he did not want to go too far, it was easy to find a satisfactory subject at which to point his camera. Before their withdrawal in the late 1980s and early 1990s, they were used on many railtours, which always provided good photographic opportunities. Today, with many of the class working on heritage railways, and a number of privately owned locomotives registered for main line use, there is still plenty to keep his cameras occupied. A selection of Peter’s best photos of the Class 50 diesels, taken over a period of forty-five years, appear in these pages.

50 Years of Phytochemistry Research by David R. Gang Book Summary:

This 43rd volume of RAP includes a total of seven articles based on talks presented at the 50th Anniversary meeting of the PSNA, which was held at the Fairmont Orchid, in Waikoloa, Hawai’i, USA. These seven Perspectives give a very good picture of the breadth of plant (bio)chemistry research in North America, which is also indicative of the state of the field worldwide. Each of these articles describes the integration of several different approaches to ask and then answer interesting questions regarding the function of interesting plant metabolites, either in the plant itself or in interactions with the environment (natural setting or human health application). Two Perspectives outline very clearly the power of approaching biological questions from a modern, “omics” or systems biology approach. Beale and Ward outline how metabolomics approaches can be brought to bear on plant biosynthetic questions and quickly lead to important advances in our understanding or how plants produce important metabolites. Zandkarimi et al. outline the integration of ion mobility spectrometry into mass spectrometry-based metabolomics investigations and show clearly how powerful those two spectrometric technologies can be when used together. ​

50 Years of the European Treaties by Michael Dougan,Samantha Currie Book Summary:

The essays which appear in this work are based on the papers presented at a two-day conference held in Liverpool in July 2007 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome establishing the EEC. The collection reflects critically upon some of the EU's historic characteristics and speculates imaginatively on some of the diverse challenges facing the Union in the future. Contributions from both established and emerging scholars of EU law and policy are united by two main themes: the paradox of the resilient yet unstable basis of the Union's constitutional fundamentals, and the ever-contested balance between the EU's core economic mission and its broader social values and aspirations. For any student, scholar or practitioner interested in the dynamic nature of the constitutional relationship between the Union and its Member States, and in the complex tensions underpinning the EU's substantive policies, these essays will be essential reading.

50 Years of Brown Dwarfs by Viki Joergens Book Summary:

The years 2012/2013 mark the 50th anniversary of the theoretical prediction that Brown Dwarfs, i.e. degenerate objects which are just not massive enough to sustain stable hydrogen fusion, exist. Some 20 years after their discovery, how Brown Dwarfs form is still one of the main open questions in the theory of star formation. In this volume, the pioneers of Brown Dwarf research review the history of the theoretical prediction and the subsequent discovery of Brown Dwarfs. After an introduction, written by Viki Joergens, reviewing Shiv Kumar's theoretical prediction of the existence of brown dwarfs, Takenori Nakano reviews his and Hayashi's calculation of the Hydrogen Burning Minimum Mass. Both predictions happened in the early 1960s. Jill Tarter then writes on the introduction of the term 'Brown Dwarf', before Ben Oppenheimer, Rafael Rebolo and Gibor Basri describe their first discovery of Brown Dwarfs in the 1990s. Lastly, Michael Cushing and Isabelle Baraffe describe the development of the field to the current state of the art. While the book is mainly aimed at the Brown Dwarf research community, the description of the pioneering period in a scientific field will attract general readers interested in astronomy as well.

Animals and us by Jennifer Brown,Yolande Seddon,Michael Appleby Book Summary:

Can we improve the health and welfare of livestock while increasing production? Can we maintain animal biodiversity in the face of increasing demands for resources and expanding agriculture? Can we use animal behaviour to reduce the carbon footprint of livestock production? Applied ethology is a young, multidisciplinary science that is relevant to these and other pressing issues. This book celebrates the history and science of applied ethology, and commemorates the 50th anniversary of the International Society for Applied Ethology. Through themes such as human-animal interaction, play behaviour, cognition, evolutionary theory and the relationship between applied ethology and animal welfare science, the book examines why ethologists are so passionate about their work, and why this field remains more exciting now than ever. Chapter authors include world renowned ethologists such as Don Broom, Ian Duncan, Ruth Newberry, and many others. The history of the ISAE and development of the field is presented with engaging profiles of founding members and pioneers in the field. New methods and emerging issues in behaviour research are discussed, along with the development of ethology around the globe. The book concludes with thoughts on future directions for applied ethology in addressing global issues of animal production, welfare, biodiversity, and the role of the ISAE. The book provides an exciting overview of this emerging field of science, and is intended for academics, students and anyone who takes pleasure in observing animals.

50+ by Bill Novelli,Boe Workman Book Summary:

50+ is a call to arms. It's a groundbreaking look at the revolution that's going on right now among seventy-eight million American baby boomers. From age 50+ on up, Americans are refusing to rock away their retirement. They're starting new careers, rallying for causes close to their hearts, raising grandchildren, becoming more active in their communities, and, above all else, changing the face of aging in America. Bill Novelli, CEO of AARP, knows that with the largest generation of Americans ever recorded nearing traditional retirement age, this revolution is changing the way 50+ Americans live their lives. The boomers have vast technological expertise, are actively involved in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, have been politically active throughout their lives, and are comfortable managing their own finances. They're no strangers to the gym, the voting booth, online investing sites, or the day-to-day management of their 401(k)s, and they're joining an already active and savvy group of Americans 50+ and beyond who are determined to leave their mark on the world. Novelli knows that there's strength in numbers and that 50+ Americans can seize the day by: --Working to transform health care not only by demanding quality care and lower pharmaceutical costs, but also by engaging in healthy lifestyles and preventive care --Creating a secure retirement by planning personal finances well in advance and working to make Social Security solvent for all Americans --Revolutionizing the workplace so those of us who want or need to continue working can do so in a way that benefits everyone. --Building livable communities with improved housing, transportation, and services, allowing all Americans to age in place. --Changing the marketplace by driving the development of innovative products and services that add value to 50+ lives, and using collective purchasing power to make them affordable --Advocating for causes that will really make a difference --Creating a lasting legacy so we can leave the world a better place than we found it. By discovering the possibilities that lie within all of us, we can ignite a twenty-first-century revolution to make America better and stronger. If you're 50+, Bill Novelli has a message for you: The best is yet to come.

Classical Music by Phil G. Goulding Book Summary:

MAKE A SOUND INVESTMENT IN CLASSICAL MUSIC Who are the ten most important classical composers? Who in the world was Palestrina? Why did Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" cause a riot? Which five of each important composer's works should you buy? What is a concerto and how does it differ from a sonata? Maybe you don't know the answers to these questions; author Phil Goulding certainly didn't. When Goulding first tried to learn about classical music, he found himself buried in an avalanche of technical terms and complicated jargon--so he decided to write the book he couldn't find. The result is a complete classical music education in one volume. Comprehensive, discriminating, and delightfully irreverent, Classical Music provides such essential information as: * Rankings of the top 50 composers (Bach is #1. Borodin is #50) * A detailed and anecdotal look at each composer's life and work * The five primary works of each composer and specific recommended CDs for each. * Further great works of each composer--if you really like him * Concise explanations of musical terminology, forms, and periods * A guide to the parts and history of the symphony orchestra "This book uses every conceivable gimmick to immerse readers in the richness of classical music: lists, rankings, sidebars devoted to lively anecdotes, and catchy leads." --The Washington Post "One terrific music appreciation book...The information is surprisingly detailed but concisely presented. Goulding's writing style is breezy yet mature....[He] has raised music appreciation from a racket to a service." --The Arizona Daily Star

Borodin is #50) * A detailed and anecdotal look at each composer's life and work * The five primary works of each composer and specific recommended CDs for each. * Further great works of each composer--if you really like him * Concise explanations of musical terminology, forms, and periods * A guide to the parts and history of the symphony orchestra "This book uses every conceivable gimmick to immerse readers in the richness of classical music: lists, rankings, sidebars devoted to lively anecdotes, and catchy leads." --The Washington Post "One terrific music appreciation book...The information is surprisingly detailed but concisely presented. Goulding's writing style is breezy yet mature....[He] has raised music appreciation from a racket to a service." --The Arizona Daily Star

Jane Goodall: 50 Years at Gombe by Jane Goodall with the Jane Goodall Institute Book Summary:

A great deal has happened since the publication of Jane Goodall: 40 Years at Gombe in 1999. Most recently, endeavors at the Gombe field site have included landmark research related to AIDS progression; establishing programs to improve sanitation, health care, and education in neighboring Tanzanian communities; and partnering with local people to pursue reforestation initiatives. The accomplishments of the past 10 years alone have given the Jane Goodall Institute a great deal to celebrate. In honor of the field site's 50th anniversary, STC is proud to release Jane Goodall: 50 Years at Gombe, a compelling pictorial tribute to Dr. Goodall's life, her studies of chimpanzee behavior, and her unflagging efforts to motivate people to make this world a better place. With a new format, a modern design, more than a dozen new photographs, and updated text throughout, this revised edition retraces five decades of compassion and discovery.
