Product Description
Robert Leon Davis was a respected police officer in New Orleans serving for four years until 1979—when he was arrested. He had begun his career with aspirations of being a great cop. But he was exposed to a darker side of law enforcement. While partnered with a veteran Robert first witnessed an officer violate the very laws he vowed to uphold - and shared his crime. One compromise led to another, and Davis faced arrest. From studying criminal law at Loyola University and becoming an award winning officer, Davis was a fugitive, living off the land in remote forests in America and Canada to elude capture. The church upbringing, where his grandmother made sure he learned about God and Jesus, was abandoned in anger. Through a stranger's prayer the angry atheist realised he was weary of running. He yielded his life to God, and gave himself in. When the District Attorney finally dusted off his file, what would his sentence be?
Product Description

For at least two millennia before the advent of the Spaniards in 1519, there was a flourishing civilization in central Mexico. During that long span of time a cultural evolution took place which saw a high development of the arts and literature, the formulation of complex religious doctrines, systems of education, and diverse political and social organization.

The rich documentation concerning these people, commonly called Aztecs, includes, in addition to a few codices written before the Conquest, thousands of folios in the Nahuatl or Aztec language written by natives after the Conquest. Adapting the Latin alphabet, which they had been taught by the missionary friars, to their native tongue, they recorded poems, chronicles, and traditions.

The fundamental concepts of ancient Mexico presented and examined in this book have been taken from more than ninety original Aztec documents. They concern the origin of the universe and of life, conjectures on the mystery of God, the possibility of comprehending things beyond the realm of experience, life after death, and the meaning of education, history, and art. The philosophy of the Nahuatl wise men, which probably stemmed from the ancient doctrines and traditions of the Teotihuacans and Toltecs, quite often reveals profound intuition and in some instances is remarkably modern.”

This English edition is not a direct translation of the original Spanish, but an adaptation and rewriting of the text for the English-speaking reader.

Leon: "I wouldn't have lasted" - collingwoodfc.com.au - Collingwood

They were three 18-year-olds drafted on the same November afternoon in 1999. Together, they would splurge their next nine years in the same locker room, and play a combined 554 senior games for the Collingwood Football Club. For Leon Davis , his sidereal 225 game career would not have happened without the support of Ben Johnson and Rhyce Shaw. On Leon , a Collingwood Media documentary potent the story of the club’s greatest Indigenous Magpie , Davis spoke of the bond developed between the trio and its influence on his life in the 18 years since. “Without Johnno and Shawry being there, I differentiate for a fact I wouldn’t have lasted as long as I did,” Davis said. Davis, who was the last of the trio taken at pick No. 34 in the 1999 Popular Draft, initially refused to entertain thoughts of moving to Melbourne. “I wasn’t too keen on going to the Draft Party, funnily enough,” he continued. “I was at home and I wasn’t too keen on moving away from home and moving away and all that. “But, Mum being Mum, made sure I got on the plane and went over. “I went to the Draw up Camp and spoke to a few teams there and Collingwood was one of them. I remember sitting down with Mick Malthouse and having a chat with him, but influential up to the draft, it wasn’t something where I got contacted by too many people. “Every time Fremantle or West Coast had a pick, I was in the vestibule watching the TV and then once their pick was done, I got up and walked out of the room and didn’t really worry about it until their next pick because I wanted to remain in Perth. “As soon as Collingwood said my name, I couldn’t get it through my head that it wasn’t in Perth, so I was sitting there like ‘Woah, Collingwood’s not in Perth, what does that sorry. “I was trying to get it through my head to go to Melbourne and move interstate. Once it happened, Mark Kleiman (a club ceremonious) gave me a call and he said ‘Welcome to the Pies mate’. “Mum was very happy because all along her team was Collingwood, so she was unqualifiedly wrapped.
