Against All Odds

by Paul Connolly, Against All Odds Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Against All Odds books, It had been years since I had seen any of the children with whom I had grown up. When I left the children's home, I promised myself that I would have nothing to do with them. I was sure that my only chance of living a good life would be to put the past behind me, even though that meant saying goodbye to some of the people I loved the most---as well as the one hated it turned out that six of as had died, several by slow suicide in the form of heroin abuse, and at least two by faster means. When two police officers arrived out of the blue at Paul Connolly's door he learned the shocking news that, out of the eight children with whom he had grown up in care only two were still alive. The revelation unearthed painful memories of a childhood that, until this point. Paul had tried desperately to put behind him. Abandoned at two weeks old, Paul came of age in the infamous St. Leonard's Children's Home in East London. The children there were routinely abused, often over the course of many years. All were underfed and unloved and told that they would amount to nothing. Angry and frustrated, Paul channelled his rage into boxing - but when an accident shattered his ambition to turn professional, he found his true calling and became a successful trainer, even working as a consultant on the pilots for a top model's fitness video. Paul has now finally found peace and fulfilment beyond anything he could have imagined all those years ago: he is happily married with two children and, through his work, he helps to heal broken bodies, build confidence and transform lives. But he will never forget his past and the unnecessary victims of a broken society.

by Renate Tobies, Felix Klein Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Felix Klein books, Als 22-Jähriger enthüllte Felix Klein dem norwegischen Mathematiker Sophus Lie sein immer vorhandenes Bedürfniß nach socialer Thätigkeit, welches mich nicht zufrieden läßt, wenn ich mich nur abstract mit der reinen Wissenschaft beschäftige. Die vorliegende Biographie versucht, die verschiedenen Seiten des herausragenden Mathematikers, Wissenschaftsorganisators und Unterrichtsreformers zu erfassen. Dazu gehören seine visionären Programme und Innovationen für mathematische Gebiete und ihre Anwendungen ebenso wie sein außergewöhnlicher Einsatz für ein höheres Niveau des mathematischen Unterrichts. Sein Motto lautete: Mathematik für alle, vom Kindergarten bis zur Hochschule, auch für Mädchen und Frauen. Er selbst nannte es sein allseitiges Programm. Mit Talent und Temperament, mit Diplomatie und Durchsetzungsvermögen konnte er viele auf seine Wege mitnehmen. Felix Klein wurde ein Weltbürger, der sich gegen Chauvinismus wandte und Studierende unabhängig von Nation, Religion und Geschlecht förderte. Er bahnte Wege, damit Mathematik Bestandteil der Kultur sowie ein zunehmend besseres Instrument für wissenschaftlich-technischen Fortschritt und Motor für die Wirtschaft werden konnte.

You're going to see these kids. They're all looking healthy and happy and smiley. Then, you're going to swim away, and they're probably all going to die.' In June 2018, for seventeen days, the world watched and held its breath as the Wild Boars soccer team were trapped deep in a cave in Thailand. Marooned beyond flooded cave passages after unexpected rains, they were finally rescued, one-by-one, against almost impossible odds, by an international cave-diving team which included Australians Dr Richard Harris and Dr Craig Challen. These two men were chosen for their medical expertise and cave diving knowledge, but this dangerous rescue asked so much more of them. They had to remain calm under extreme pressure and intense scrutiny, adapt to constantly changing circumstances and importantly, build trust among the rescue team and with the young boys and their coach, whose lives were in their hands. Here is the story of these two Australian men who became international heroes - it is a story of determination, cunning and triumph that will long be remembered.

Download International Adventures Against All Odds books, "Deeply wounded in his childhood and struggling to come to terms with failed relationships, Jim Stier wondered if God could ever use a life as fractured as his. Indeed God would use him -- in ways that Jim could never have imagined. Confronted with the opportunity to deny his Savior, Jim surrendered his life, with all of its pain, to God. So began an inspiring journey of struggle, faith, and victory that ultimately led to the lost, hurting people of Brazil and beyond. Against All Odds is a compelling reminder that God restores broken lives and broken dreams. This story of one man's passion to see a nation transformed is a stunning testimony that Christ's grace and mercy can redeem any life surrendered to Him."--Publisher's website.

Download Against All Odds books, "Recording the time as 12.05 am and date as 4 August, musician Moss Hills added calmly: "So I guess we're going down". In August 1991, excited holiday-makers boarded the Oceanos at East London for the trip of a lifetime. Despite treacherous weather, the captain ordered the ship to set sail for Durban. And so began the ill-fated voyage. Hurricane force winds and giant rogue waves aggravated the hostile storm. Soon the ship started taking water. Panicked senior crew members scrambled into lifeboats leaving the ship's evacuation to the on-board entertainers. At one point, a musician manned the bridge, at another, a magician. Women and children clambered aboard lifeboats which were launched into terrifying seas, leaving their husbands behind, unsure if they would see each other again. After all the operational lifeboats had been utilised, 221 passengers and junior crew were left stranded on the rapidly sinking ship. During this catastrophe the South African Air Force embarked on their biggest air rescue ever, with helicopter crews and Navy divers risking everything to evacuate the remaining passengers. In Against all Odds, maritime lawyer Andrew Pike, who was part of the legal investigation into the Oceanos' sinking, recreates the compelling drama and extraordinary heroism of the greatest maritime rescue in South African history"--Back cover.
