Truly the voice of a generation, George Carlin gave the world some of the most hysterical and iconic comedy routines of the last fifty years. From the "Seven Dirty Words" to "A Place for My Stuff," to "Religion is Bullshit," he perfected the art of making audiences double over with laughter while simultaneously making people wake up to the realities (and insanities) of life in the twentieth century.
Few people glimpsed the inner life of this beloved comedian, but his only child, Kelly, was there to see it all. Born at the very beginning of his decades-long career in comedy, she slid around the "old Dodge Dart," as he and wife Brenda drove around the country to "hell gigs." She witnessed his transformation in the '70s, as he fought back against---and talked back to---the establishment; she even talked him down from a really bad acid trip a time or two ("Kelly, the sun has exploded and we have eight, no-seven and a half minutes to live!").
Kelly not only watched her father constantly reinvent himself and his comedy, but also had a front row seat to the roller coaster turmoil of her family's inner life---alcoholism, cocaine addiction, life-threatening health scares, and a crushing debt to the IRS. But having been the only "adult" in her family prepared her little for the task of her own adulthood. All the while, Kelly sought to define her own voice as she separated from the shadow of her father's genius.
With rich humor and deep insight, Kelly Carlin pulls back the curtain on what it was like to grow up as the daughter of one of the most recognizable comedians of our time, and become a woman in her own right. This vivid, hilarious, heartbreaking story is at once singular and universal-it is a contemplation of what it takes to move beyond the legacy of childhood, and forge a life of your own.
Examining two centuries of Balkan politics, from the emergence of nationalism to the retreat of Communist power in 1989, this is the first book to systematically argue that many of the region's problems are external in origin.
A decade of instability in the Balkan states of southeast Europe has given the region one of the worst images in world politics. The Balkans has become synonymous with chaos and extremism. Balkanization, meaning conflict arising from the fragmentation of political power, is a condition feared across the globe. This new text assesses the key issues of Balkan politics, showing how the development of exclusive nationalism has prevented the region’s human and material resources from being harnessed in a constructive way.
It argues that the proximity of the Balkans to the great powers is the main reason for instability and decline. Britain, Russia, Austria-Hungary, France and finally the USA had conflicting ambitions and interests in the region. Russia had imperial designs before and after the 1917 Revolution. The Western powers sometimes tolerated these or encouraged undemocratic local forces to exercise control in order to block further Soviet expansion.
Leading authority Tom Gallagher examines the origins of these Western prejudices towards the Balkans, tracing the damaging effects of policies based on Western lethargy and cynicism, and reassesses the negative image of the region, its citizens, their leadership skills and their potential to overcome crucial problems.
Italy win a famous victory in Edinburgh Scotland throw away early 10 point lead Pressure will mount after abject display Referee George Clancy sent Ben Toolis to the sin bin with only minutes remaining before awarding a heart-breaking penalty try. An early Mark Bennett try and 14 points from the boot of captain Greig Laidlaw was not enough to get a first championship win. Italy scored tries through Joshua Furno and Giovanbattista Venditti, while flyhallf Kelly Haimona kicked 10 points and Tommaso Allen covered the penalty try. Italy won a tense and famous Six Nations match 22-19 in dramatic and controversial circumstances, consigning Scotland to an ignominious defeat in front of a record crowd at Murrayfield. Scotland played as if the pressure of knowing a loss in the capital would undo all the good work done to this point. With less than five minutes remaining Peter Horne’s missed penalty touch-finder did not go out and could be seen as the turning point in the match. Instead of a line out on the halfway line, Italy gained possession and ran the ball back into the Scots’ half. There comes a time when the talking stops and only deeds will do. Narrow defeats to New Zealand in the autumn and France and Wales mean nothing if failing to beat Italy at home comes afterwards. Scotland versus Italy. so long the battle for the wooden spoon in the Six Nations and very often forgetful encounters. Saturday’s record for this fixture is evidence of Scotland’s tangible improvement under Cotter, despite two opening tournament losses. Concerns over the penalty count at the set pieces are growing but some of those are open to referee interpretation. The beginning to the match could not have got off to a better start for Cotter’s side when Laidlaw opened the scoring with a second minute penalty. Things got even better five minutes later when Haimona, looking to spread the ball wide using a skip-pass move, had his telegraphed pass intercepted by Bennett – Scotland beginning to make a habit of these scores. Laidlaw added the two points and Scotland had a 10 point lead after eight minutes. But Italy hit back immediately through Furno when the visitors used a driving maul to devastating effect. The Italians decimating the Scots forwards, driving them 20 meters to go over in the corner and halve the deficit. Scotland were. Source: Back Page Heroes

George Kelly's personal construct theory, first published in 1955, is as radical today as it was then. Describing how each one of us goes about our daily life trying to make sense of the events around us, it maintains that we are in charge of what we do in the world, that we do not merely react to events. This book reveals that George Kelly was a man of enormous intellect, of many talents and of great complexity. Fay Fransella outlines how his views have influenced the theory and practice of psychotherapy, and illustrates how his training in physics and mathematics influenced his theory and led to the development of one of his methods of measurement - the repertory grid. The book also describes Kelly's philosophy of constructive alternativism, which suggests that we have created and can therefore recreate ourselves, and that what is true for the individual, rather than some external truth, is what matters. This philosophy can be seen as a precursor of the current emphasis on constructivism. Criticisms of Kelly's work and examples of work carried out within this framework since his death are also featured.
