“A modern day Mark Twain on two wheels.” —USA Today “Joe Kurmaskie rolls with a keen sense of humor and a big heart.” —Christopher Moore, author of Lamb, Fool, and The Serpent of Venice The fifth book in the Metal Cowboy series of bicycle-touring tales hits the open road in high gear and never looks back. Whether he’s outsprinting African elephants in Zimbabwe; reliving dangerous old cycling routes of his youth; debating the merits of living strong or living wrong or living without a rubber bracelet at all; riding up Mount Hood in a July snowstorm; savoring roadside treasures found along the way; extolling the wonder of boys on bikes; detailing a few skirmishes in the war between cars and bikes, debating the perils and delights of riding at night; and diagnosing whether the glorious addiction called cycling has taken over your life, he consistently rides down awful truths and celebrates beautiful wrecks—himself included. Joe Kurmaskie has mastered the painful art of falling down and the flat-out rush of getting back up again. This collection is a kaleidoscope of exuberant cycling adventure stories spanning four decades and thirty countries. It embraces the absurdity of living at any speed, the fragility in each of us the world over, and simple wonders waiting just up the road.

Beloved science commentator Bob McDonald takes us on a tour of our galaxy, unraveling the mysteries of the universe and helping us navigate our place among the stars. How big is our galaxy? Is there life on those distant planets? Are we really made of star dust? And where do stars even come from? In An Earthling’s Guide to Outer Space, we finally have the answers to all those questions and more. With clarity, wisdom, and a great deal of enthusiasm, McDonald explores the curiosities of the big blue planet we call home as well as our galactic neighbours—from Martian caves to storm clouds on Jupiter to the nebulae at the far end of the universe. So if you’re pondering how to become an astronaut, or what dark matter really is, or how an asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs, look no further. Through a captivating mix of stories, experiments, and illustrations, McDonald walks us through space exploration past and present, and reveals what we can look forward to in the future. An Earthling’s Guide to Outer Space is sure to satisfy science readers of all ages, and to remind us earthbound terrestrials just how special our place in the universe truly is.

This document is a compendium of specific drunk driving topics and issues for each of the major planning steps of a public information program. These lists were compiled from a review of campaign materials from organizations around the country. The intent is to provide alcohol coordinators with the opportunity to read messages and planning ideas used by others and to provide suggestions for further development by local planners, advisory committees, focus groups, and advertising agencies working on the program. It is, of course, necessary that specific strategies be "localized" to reflect the needs of the community in which the message would be used. This resource should be useful in writing public information plans and position statements, preparing speeches, briefing volunteers, studying for talk show appearances, and the like. It is hoped that this manual will help develop more effective materials for changing public attitudes and behaviors about drunk driving. In addition, there are several drunk driving television public service announcements available to illustrate some of the items as indicated by the number in the right column. (See Master List in the Appendix). These spots may be borrowed to use on the air or to use as "trigger films" with groups. They are available from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (formerly The Highway Traffic Safety Research Institute) in Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109, or from your State's Highway Safety Department.
