"There are only three sports: bullfighting, mountain climbing and motor racing; all the rest are merely games." - Ernest Hemingway "Grand Prix racing is primarily a mental contest... it's a battle of strength of wills by the combatants and a magnificent contest, the arena to display and share unique gifts and talents. Perhaps in this 'theatre of speed', F1 is a metaphor for life itself" - craig lock A collection of articles on my great passion (or rather life-long obsession), motor racing, but especially Formula 1 and V8 Supercars (Australia).

Did you know that the United States of America began life as a confederacy, and that it was, in fact, officially called "the Confederacy" between 1781 and 1789? Did you know that for those eight years the U.S. technically operated as, and was also nicknamed, "The Confederate States of America," and that because of this our first constitution was named "The Articles of Confederation"?
Did you know that the conservative South fought the liberal North, not to "preserve slavery," as has been falsely taught, but to preserve the original limited confederate government of the Founding Fathers and the conservative ideals embedded in our first constitution, the Articles of Confederation? And did you know that it was for these reasons that in 1861 the seceding Southern states called themselves "The Confederate States of America"?
In this brief but educational book, The Articles of Confederation Explained: A Clause-by-Clause Study of America's First Constitution, award-winning author and historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook explores these topics and more in an in-depth look at the thirteen Articles of Confederation, first formulated in 1777. The complete and original text of each article is provided, along with a clear and simple explanation describing its meaning and intended purpose. Also included in this wonderfully illustrated little work is a list of the ten presidents of the U.S. Confederacy, who served, according to specifications laid out in Article Nine, between the years 1779 and 1789.
With this book, the companion to Colonel Seabrook's bestselling title, The Constitution of the Confederate States of America Explained, you will gain new insight into some of the fascinating facts that are left out of our history books. Discover for yourself why some of America's greatest thinkers, such as the author's cousin Patrick Henry, embraced the Articles of Confederation, and argued against replacing them with the U.S. Constitution and a bigger more powerful central government.
Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and popular pro-South writer in the world today. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 50 books that have introduced hundreds of thousands to the truth about the War for Southern Independence. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, Colonel Seabrook has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the international blockbuster Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!
His other titles include: The Great Yankee Coverup: What the North Doesn't Want You to Know About Lincoln's War; Confederacy 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America's Oldest Political Tradition; Confederate Flag Facts: What Every American Should Know About Dixie's Southern Cross; Women in Gray: A Tribute to the Ladies Who Supported the Southern Confederacy; Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!; A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest; Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View; Give This Book to a Yankee: A Southern Guide to the Civil War for Northerners; and Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe: A Southern Children's Guide to the Civil War.
When time is of the essence and you want to honor those who have passed, this booklet can help you collect your thoughts and present them in a meaningful way to those you love.
The coastal ocean comprises the semi-enclosed seas on the continental shelf, including estuaries and extending to the shelf break. This region is the focus of many serious concerns, including coastal inundation by tides, storm surges or sea level change; fisheries and aquaculture management; water quality; harmful algal blooms; planning of facilities (such as power stations); port development and maintenance; and oil spills. This book addresses modeling and simulation of the transport, evolution and fate of particles (physical and biological) in the coastal ocean. It is the first to summarize the state of the art in this field and direct it toward diverse applications, for example in measuring and monitoring sediment motion, oil spills and larval ecology. This is an invaluable textbook and reference work for advanced students and researchers in oceanography, geophysical fluid dynamics, marine and civil engineering, computational science and environmental science.
