LIFE IS A BLAST! Minuteman to Ministry A Pastor Looks Back on His Life And Anticipates the Future! by Pastor Cecil Thompson Life starts for everyone at the moment of birth. What a profound statement! It is what we do with that life that counts. To ask the question, "How in the world did I get here?" Seems to demand another question, "Where is here?" Here is where we happen to be at this very moment. It is not a particular age or a particular achievement. It is where we are right now. I have been writing for many years but most of it has been unrelated to specific periods of time. You might say it has been a recounting of random thoughts, stories, illustrations, and memories. Someone much wiser than me as suggested that while there is still time I need to put down some of the things that I have done that will not be remembered after I'm gone. Isn't that a cheerful thought?! And so my story begins. This little boy who was stuck with the name Junior was about to enter life and have the most wonderful experience that can even be imagined. Yes I had many disciplines along the way, but as I look back they were all deserved, and a few I got away with. Please fasten your seat belt and take this trip with me. Pastor Cecil A. Thompson
"I remember attending an Open Mic session at a venue located in downtown Detroit. A poet took the stage and before reciting his piece, he said that a poet has five minutes to impact his or her audience either negatively or positively. What a poet said in those five minutes could either create change or maintain the status quo.
I went home that evening and asked myself, "What if, after five minutes, I could no longer write poetry for the rest of my life. What would I write in my last five minutes?" The answer? If I Only Had Five Minutes. The Last Will and Testament of a Hip Hop Poet.
If I Only Had Five Minutes. The Last Will and Testament of a Hip Hop Poet is a three disc compilation: Life, Love, & Rhymes. In 26 poems I speak his language, swallow her pain, dream my memories, and create our rhythm. In my 'five minutes' I fill white space with unlimited possibility. In my 'five minutes, ' I write now, so others can remember later...
What will you do with your five minutes?" Tia DeShay
This book cover the basics of aeroelasticity or the dynamics of fluid-structure interaction. While the field began in response to the rapid development of aviation, it has now expanded into many branches of engineering and scientific disciplines and treat physical phenomena from aerospace engineering, bioengineering, civil engineering, and mechanical engineering in addition to drawing the attention of mathematicians and physicists.
The basic questions addressed are dynamic stability and response of fluid structural systems as revealed by both linear and nonlinear mathematical models and correlation with experiment. The use of scaled models and full scale experiments and tests play a key role where theory is not considered sufficiently reliable.
In this new edition the more recent literature on nonlinear aeroelasticity has been brought up to date and the opportunity has been taken to correct the inevitable typographical errors that the authors and our readers have found to date. The early chapters of this book may be used for a first course in aeroelasticity taught at the senior undergraduate or early graduate level and the later chapters may serve as the basis for a more advanced course, a graduate research seminar or as reference to provide an entree to the current research literature.
Join Master Trainer, Duane Alley for 7 Minutes a Day and uncover a brand new way of focus and action so you can wake up every morning and plan every week to guarantee you are on path to achieving your goals, dreams and greatest desires. Most people focus so intently on the achievement of a goal or goals. What they forget or have never been taught is that the achievement of a goal is a fixed point in time. It is a single event that happens and once done is over. What we truly desire to be focused on is the creation of the life we want after we have achieved the goal. After all, the reason we achieved the goal was to have the life we get afterwards - make sense? We get so hung up on "achievement" as the ultimate aim that we forego the real reward which is living an incredible life as we design if or choose it to be.
