Zen And The Art Of Snowboarding

Many meditaion teachers tell their students to cling to the feelings of peace and tranquility they feel after meditating as they go about their daily activities. There is some merit to this, of course, but clinging to a feeling, even a deeply satisfying one, tends to limit one’s ability to experience the plenitude of experience.

Zen Buddhists of some schools emphasize the greater importance of ‘mindfulness’ over the meditation. The difference is that mindfulness is the cultivation of the ability to go about your everyday lives in a heightened state of awareness. They say that when you are meditating, you should meditate, but that when you eat, you should just eat.

If you learn to apply this to your daily life, you eventually learn to live in the moment even while experiencing the most stressful situations. Interestingly, many extreme athletes have had these moments of complete awareness when they have pushed their limits and are facing life-threatening situations.

A Giro ski helmet isn’t going to be of much comfort to a snowboarder when he’s flying down a near-vertical slope. At speeds like that, his life is going to depend on all the hours of practice he’s put into his sport and the reflexes and automatic responses he has cultivated.

At speeds like that, you must live in the moment, or fear just gets in the way of performance. One snowboarder described a run he made that became a life-or death-run when he had to outrace an avalanche. ‘It was as if time stood still, ‘ he said. ‘I felt no fear. I didn’t have time to think, either. It was as if my mind became very quiet and my body just did what it had to do and I just observed what was happening. In the middle of all the chaos, I remember looking down at my brown boots and wondering briefly why I had chosen that color. I was that calm.’

When the snowboarder safely arrived at the bottom of the slope, he continued to feel that extreme sense of calm and detachment. It wasn’t until he looked at his digital sport watch and saw that only a few minutes and not hours had passed that he returned to his normal state of consciousness. He said, ‘I could have sworn that a long time had passed. It was a shock to see that the whole thing had only lasted a couple of minutes.’

Extreme mindfulness like this is achievable, but not just through clinging to that nice blissful feeling you get after a good meditation. Clinging to any kind of phenomenon, even the most pleasant, limits your awareness. True enlightenment is likely to come via the cultivation of complete detachment.

Exercise Biochemistry


Exercise Biochemistry


$109


Exercise Biochemistry brings an admittedly difficult and technical subject to life. Extremely user- and student-friendly, it is written in conversational style by Vassilis Mougios, who poses and then answers questions as if in conversation with a student. Mougios does an excellent job of making the information interesting by using simple language without compromising scientific accuracy and content. He also uses ample analogies, related works of art, and numerous illustrations to drive home his points for readers. The result is that Exercise Biochemistry is a highly informative and illuminating text on the effects of exercise on molecular-level functioning. It presents the basics of biochemistry as well as in-depth coverage of exercise biochemistry. The book uses key terms, sidebars, and questions and problems posed at the end of each chapter to facilitate learning. It also covers metabolism, endocrinology, and assessment all in one volume, unlike other exercise biochemistry books. In exploring all of these topics, Exercise Biochemistry makes the case for exercise biochemistry to have a stand-alone textbook. In fact, this book will encourage more universities to introduce exercise biochemistry courses to their curricula. Having the necessary topics of basic biochemistry in a single volume will facilitate the work of both instructors and students. Exercise Biochemistry will also be useful to graduate students in sport science who have not been formally introduced to exercise biochemistry during their undergraduate programs. Additionally, it can supplement exercise physiology textbooks with its coverage of the molecular basis of physiological processes. This book is also for physical education and sport professionals who have an interest in how the human body functions during and after exercise. And this book is addressed to health scientists who are interested in the transformations in human metabolism brought about by physical

All dancers are looking to achieve optimal performance-and Dance Anatomy and Kinesiology will help them do just that. This text helps dancers learn anatomical and biomechanical principles as they apply to dance performance. It focuses on optimal dance movement and the related principles for understanding the function of body joints. And by applying those principles, dancers can help reduce their risk of injury and enhance their performance longevity. In addition, Dance Anatomy and Kinesiology includes special practical applications:-Concept Demonstrations provide hands-on exercises to try-Tests and Measurements are specific to selected regions of the body-Dance Cues help analyze cue effectiveness and promote optimal movement execution-Study Questions and Applications help apply chapter concepts-Attachments provide the pronunciations, attachments, and key actions of the primary muscles covered in this text. The first two chapters cover the skeletal and muscular systems as they apply to dance and provide basic anatomical terminology and concepts. Chapters 3 through 7 delve into specific areas of the body-the spine, the pelvic girdle and hip joint, the knee and patellofemoral joints, the ankle and foot, and the upper extremity. These chapters encompass primary bones, muscles, joints, alignment deviations, mechanics, and injuries for the given region, with special considerations for dance. They present strength and flexibility exercises to help dancers improve technique and prevent injuries.

Applied Mathematics And Mechanics


Applied Mathematics And Mechanics


$219.3


This book deals with the impact of uncertainty in input data on the outputs of mathematical models. Uncertain inputs as scalars, tensors, functions, or domain boundaries are considered. In practical terms, material parameters or constitutive laws, for instance, are uncertain, and quantities as local temperature, local mechanical stress, or local displacement are monitored. The goal of the worst scenario method is to extremize the quantity over the set of uncertain input data.A general mathematical scheme of the worst scenario method, including approximation by finite element methods, is presented, and then applied to various state problems modeled by differential equations or variational inequalities: nonlinear heat flow, Timoshenko beam vibration and buckling, plate buckling, contact problems in elasticity and thermoelasticity with and without friction, and various models of plastic deformation, to list some of the topics. Dozens of examples, figures, and tables are included. Although the book concentrates on the mathematical aspects of the subject, a substantial part is written in an accessible style and is devoted to various facets of uncertainty in modeling and to the state of the art techniques proposed to deal with uncertain input data.A chapter on sensitivity analysis and on functional and convex analysis is included for the reader’s convenience. Rigorous theory is established for the treatment of uncertainty in modeling? Uncertainty is considered in complex models based on partial differential equations or variational inequalities? Applications to nonlinear and linear problems with uncertain data are presented in detail: quasilinear steady heat flow, buckling of beams and plates, vibration of beams, frictional contact of bodies, several models of plastic deformation, and more? Although emphasis is put on theoretical analysis and approximation techniques, numerical examples are also present? Main ideas a

Man on Fire


Man on Fire


$4.49


John Lock has fled the quiet desperation of his life in England-decades wasted in a meaningless job, a marriage foundering in the wake of loss, and a terrible secret he cannot bear to share with his wife-and has come to India to meet his destiny.A destiny dressed in a white karate suit and sporting an impressive moustache. John has come to offer his help to a man who has learned to conquer pain, a world record-breaker who specializes in feats of extreme endurance and ill-advised masochism. Bibhuti Nayak has survived forty-three kicks to the unprotected groin in ninety seconds, three forty-pound slabs of concrete smashed over his groin with a sledgehammer, and thirty-one watermelons dropped on his stomach in one minute from a height of more than thirty feet. His next record attempt-to have fifty baseball bats broken over his body-will be the crowning moment in a career that has seen him rise from poverty to become a minor celebrity in a nation where standing out from the crowd requires tenacity, courage, and perhaps a touch of madness. John is welcomed into Bibhuti’s family and into the color and chaos of Mumbai, where he encounters Ping-Pong-playing monks, a fearless seven-year-old martial arts warrior, and an old man who longs for the monsoon to wash him away. As he and Bibhuti take their leap of faith together, John sets out to rewrite a brave end to a life poorly lived.

Orlan: Millennial Female


Orlan: Millennial Female


$1.99


The French performance artist Orlan has acquired both fame and infamy for her performances. A multimedia artist since the 1960s, she embarked at the beginning of the 1990s on a project of body modification through plastic surgery, the basic premise of which was to transform herself into a digitally designed pastiche of the greatest icons of female beauty in Western art. Orlan’s project has sparked intense debate in the visual arts, among feminists, and among those concerned with medical ethics, as it raises complex questions about sexuality, beauty, subjectivity, gender and technology. This book addresses all these issues, and focuses on the interrelations of dress, body and culture in Orlan’s work since the 1960s. Surgical performances represent the most extreme phase of Orlan’s artistic practice, but she has made extensive and varied use of costume throughout her career. Using the ‘body theory’ and theories of monstrosity developed by feminist, gender and film theorists, and the work of philosophers Luce Irigaray and Gilles Deleuze, the author examines the challenges Orlan’s performance art poses to its viewers. Anyone working in the fields of gender, the visual arts or cultural studies will find this book and the questions it raises provocative and enlightening.

Critical Readings in Bodybuilding


Critical Readings in Bodybuilding


$54.95


In recent years the ‘body’ has become one of the most popular areas of study in the arts, humanities and social sciences. Bodybuilding, in particular, continues to be of interest to scholars of gender, media, film, cultural studies and sociology. However, there is surprisingly little scholarship available on contemporary bodybuilding. Critical Readings in Bodybuilding is the first collection to address the contemporary practice of bodybuilding, especially the way in which the activity has become increasingly more extreme and to consider much neglected debates of gender, eroticism, and sexuality related to the activity. Featuring the leading scholars of bodybuilding and the body as well as emerging voices, this volume will be a key addition to the fields of Sociology, Sport Studies, and Cultural Studies.

There are no absolute rules as to which oils blend well together, so feel free to experiment! But remember, your blend will be greatly enhanced by using the highest quality pure plant essential oils you can find. Easy Aromatherapy Blends Start small, mixing no more than 2 to 5 oils per blend and blending drop by drop. To get a feel for particular combinations of oils, put the bottle caps together and smell them, or use small strips of coffee filter or blotter paper.

Extremely thick oils, such as benzoin and vetiver, may need to be diluted with a little grain alcohol (such as Everclear, or perfumery grade grain or grape alcohol) before blending.
