To save her, he’ll have to give her up…and she won’t let him go. Dr. Ryan Yin hates his people’s mating laws, and he’s not the only tiger shifter male who feels that way. But the grumblings of some young males, led by an enigmatic and dangerous leader, threaten his people’s survival. Ryan’s very real disgust with the Mate Run allows him to infiltrate the group, where he hopes the information he finds can stave off a civil war. He never guesses the young males will go so far as to kidnap tigresses. Now Ryan has to find a way to keep the women alive and get them to safety before anyone else dies. He never expects that among the captives he’ll find his mate. Lakshmi is strong, fierce, and beautiful…and completely beyond his reach. As a rare female tiger shifter, Lakshmi Das was promised by her people that in exchange for taking part in the Mate Run, she and the other tigresses would be safe from the violence and bloodshed of centuries past. Her people failed in that promise. Now Lakshmi is at the mercy of a crazy tiger and his followers who are intent on turning her into a slave mate. Her only hope of escape is the group’s sexy, delicious-smelling doctor, a tiger she can’t let herself trust but who draws her like no other man she’s ever met. Escape will come at a price neither of them expects. They’ll have to defy their people’s laws if they have any hope of being together…but only if they can survive the vengeance of an insane shifter determined to start a rebellion.

Unleashed by Hitler in 1942, the German Tiger tank was by far the most powerful tank ever built at the time. The 60-ton monster could destroy any Allied tank from more than a mile away, and it soon became the most feared tank in the world. Desperate to discover the secret technology used in the Tiger's manufacture, Winston Churchill close a brilliant young army engineer, Major Doug Lidderdale, as his special agent. In a late-night briefing in the subterranean War Rooms under Whitehall he ordered him: 'Go catch me a tiger'. Doug did not hesitate and by February 1943 was facing Rommel's desert army. After several unsuccessful and hair-raising efforts to bag a Tiger on the battlefields of Tunisia, Doug and his team put their lives on the line in a terrifying, close-hand shoot-out with the five-man crew of a Tiger, capturing the tank intact. The morale boost to the Allies was such that both Churchill and King George VI flew to Tunis to examine the Tiger first hand. But the Germans were not finished with Doug. They did not want the secrets of the Tiger benefitting the Allies' war efforts, and constant attacks by the Luftwaffe and U-boats pursued Doug and his men on every step of the journey back to England. But eventually, by October 1943, the Tiger - number 131 - was delivered to London and gifted to Churchill, who had it placed on London's Horse Guards Parade. Lidderdale went on to use some of the Tiger technology to develop war machines for the D-Day landings and was promoted to Colonel. Tiger 131 is now kept at Bovington Tank Museum and is the only working Tiger in the world.The full extent of Doug Lidderdale's adventures in North Africa only came to light after his son, Dave Travis, revealed the existence of his father's diaries. With exclusive access to these and dozens of photographs, Catch That Tiger tells the incredible story of one of the most dangerous and thrilling secret missions of World War II.

In 1971, civil war raged in Tony Assali's home country of Lebanon. The oldest of five children, Tony had no choice but to come to America alone, establishing a foothold so that one day the rest of his family could join him. Thrilled, yet frightened at the same time, Tony knew it was up to him to make it with so many people depending on him.Luckily for Tony, all his life he possessed a special skill: the ability to perceive "White Tigers," rare and valuable opportunities other people either do not see or are too afraid to pursue. Using his powers of persuasion and relentless work ethic, Tony landed job after job, always with an eye on earning more money, to obtain the American dream.From humble beginnings working in a doughnut factory, Tony became the most sought-after waiter at a high-end restaurant; from there, he parlayed his charm into a position selling men's suits by the thousands. At the same time, he fulfilled his promise to his family, bringing all of his loved ones over, getting them jobs, and helping to establish lives for them in America.Never content to rest on past wins, Tony dared to dream bigger, originating the idea to sell hummus, a Mediterranean staple from his homeland, in American grocery stores across the US. This White Tiger caught on in a big way, making Tony a millionaire by the time he sold his food company in 1980s. Yet, still Tony hungered for more. He came out of semi-retirement to challenge himself once again selling meat door-to-door, just because he liked the thrill of closing. He sold so many items, shattering all of the company records, that the computer couldn't keep up with him. Yet, in spite of so many triumphs, Tony still hadn't found the White Tiger he was really looking for -- the right woman to make his life complete. After four marriages, Tony at last caught his White Tiger, the love of his life. The problem was, she was already married. Never the type of person to let an objection stop him, Tony found a way to land his ultimate White Tiger while creating his final economic empire, a lucrative real estate business in Sunny Orange County.

Liaozhai Zhiyi (Liaozhai; Chinese: 聊齋, or 聊齋誌異), called in English Strange Tales from a Chinese Lonely Studio is a collection of Classical Chinese stories by Pu Songling comprising close to five hundred "marvel tales" in the zhiguai and chuanqi styles which serve to implicitly criticise societal issues then. Dating back to the Qing dynasty, its earliest publication date is given as 1740. Since then, many of the critically lauded stories have been adapted for other media such as film and television. The main characters of this book apparently are ghosts, foxes, immortals and demons, but the author focused on the everyday life of commoners. He used the supernatural and the unexplainable to illustrate his ideas of society and government. He criticized the corruption and injustice in society and sympathized with the poor. The book is complete translation of all volumes (Vol. 1 to 12) of Liaozhai.

Eeny, meeny, figgledy, fig. Delia, dolia, dominig, Ozy, pozy doma-nozy, Tee, tau, tut, Uggeldy, buggedy, boo! Out goes you. (no. 129) You can stand, And you can sit, But, if you play, You must be it. (no. 577) Counting-out rhymes are used by children between the ages of six and eleven as a special way of choosing it and beginning play. They may be short and simple ("O-U-T spells out/And out goes you") or relatively long and complicated; they may be composed of ordinary words, arrant nonsense, or a mixture of the two. Roger D. Abrahams and Lois Rankin have gathered together a definitive compendium of counting-out rhymes in English reported to 1980. These they discovered in over two hundred sources from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including rhymes from England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. Representative texts are given for 582 separate rhymes, with a comprehensive listing of sources and variants for each one, as well as information on each rhyme's provenience, date, and use. Cross-references are provided for variants whose first lines differ from those of the representative texts. Abrahams's introduction discusses the significance of counting-out rhymes in children's play. Children's folklore and speech play have attracted increasing attention in recent years. Counting-Out Rhymes will be a valuable resource for researchers in this field.

What we want ultimately is to catch the tiger and any other family of the tiger nearby such that there will be absolutely no more attack from any tigers. You also want to know from the tiger hunter what to do when approaching a tiger.

Many books have been written with respect to either time management, quality control/assurance, cost control or the likes. However, if you apply them in isolation, you may compromise either time, quality or cost. As a result, many people just accept the so called balance between time, quality and cost. To the writer, that balance is not good enough. So for the first time, a book is written with the view to acquire the three important values in totality and achieve excellence with the introduction of the terms zero time, zero mistake, zero cost and a problem solving principle. Chapter 1 will explain the philosophies behind the problem solving principle uphold by this book. Chapter 2 will illustrate the ingredients of this problem solving principle i.e. the formulas such as "the next definite step", "discontinue the work", "what we want ultimately", etc. which were derived from the philosophies explained in Chapter 1. Chapter 3 will explain how the formulas stated in Chapter 2 were applied in piece meal basis to manage fast track projects by some reputable companies in the world. Chapter 4 will illustrate how the formulas are integrated to form a simple but yet effective and efficient problem solving principle. The ways on how this problem solving principle can be applied to solve simple to complicated problems are explained in Chapter 5 This problem solving principle is also flexible such that you can integrate it with your way of thinking to manage time, quality and cost the way you want.

A revival of interest in morphology has occurred during recent years. The periodical Yearbook of Morphology, published since 1988, has proven to be an eminent support for this upswing of morphological research, and has shown that morphology is central to present-day linguistic theorizing. In the Yearbook of Morphology 2005 a number of important theoretical issues are discussed: the role of inflectional paradigms in morphological analysis, the differences between words and affixes, and the adequacy of competing models of word structure. In addition, the role of phonological factors in shaping complex words is discussed. Evidence for particular positions defended in this volume is taken from a wide variety of languages. This volume is of interest to those working in theoretical, descriptive and historical linguistics, morphologists, phonologists, computational linguists, and psycholinguists. Beginning with Volume 16 (2006) the Yearbook of Morphology continues as a journal with the title: Morphology. This is the only journal entirely devoted to the study of linguistic morphology. The journal is available online as well as in print. Visit the journal at: www.springer.com/11525 or click on the link in the top right hand corner.

Thomas Walsh knows the number one rule in the film industry. Don't get involved with the talent. But resisting the urge to take the big screen to the bedroom can be hell when the lead actor on the set looks good enough to eat...one slow lick at a time. Peter Erickson's latest role as a gay man hits a little too close to home. He's still in the closet and secretly grieving the death of his lover. Then an enchanting production assistant catches his eye, and he's surprised by the instant attraction that stirs more than his wounded soul. When the two men are caught on camera in a very intimate pose, both Thomas and Peter are afraid they've caught a tiger by the tail.
