Jazz in the Pass emanates the historic musical legacies as put forth by Capt. John Handy, saxophone; Joe B. Jackson, pianist; and the Watson Brothers' Band, who were all from this community. The festival has grown with each year, with the potential of becoming a major event. Capt. John Handy, a Black man with roots in Pass Christian, became internationally famous for his performances with his alto sax. At his funeral in 1970, Harold DeJean, head of the Olympia Brass Band, echoed out, "We come to lay him down right!" The ritual is a tradition for New Orleans old musicians that seldom varies. The band lead the hearse in a somber funereal march to the cemetery, playing hymns all along the way. The lead trumpet rolled out the first notes of "Closer Walk With Thee." Then they let loose with a sprightly march as they came away from the grave, blaring lively Dixieland tunes. The trumpets aimed heavenward, clarinets playing lower register, and the trombones flamed like burnished gold. The mourners strutted and trucked all along the band route. Friends had come from as far as England and as near as around the corner - also in tribute were the bells from other churches in the city that began ringing - "there were the sounds of music everywhere.


The Streets Of Grants Pass, Oregon - 2014

This is not a history book nor is it a book of historical photos. However, as the years pass, it will become history. As the photographer and author of this, the first in a series of books about the streets of Grants Pass, I feel the reason for such an undertaking needs to be explained, and that is to simply record what the buildings looked like in 2014. At the end of the 19th Century, Grants Pass became a small city. It existed in name from 1864 when it got its first post office. Therefore, this book of streets, celebrates the 150 year of the name Grants Pass. The post office was in a private home and by no means indicated there was a town. Grants Pass was a community of wide spread farms with the nearest post office at Rock Point (Gold Hill area) 17 miles from what is now downtown Grants Pass. This is a picture book. There are few comments. It just shows how North 6th Street in Grants Pass, Oregon looked in 2014.


A Passion For The Possible

RRP $244.99

Paul Ricoeur's entire philosophical project narrates a "passion for the possible" expressed in the hope that in spite of death, closure, and sedimentation, life is opened by superabundance, by how the world gives us much more than is possible. Ricoeur's philosophical anthropology is a phenomenology of human capacity, which gives onto the groundless ground of human being, namely, God. Thus the story of the capable man, beginning with original goodness held captive by a servile will and ending with the possibility of liberation and regeneration of the heart, underpins his passion for the more than possible. The essays in this volume trace the fluid movement between phenomenological and religious descriptions of the capable self that emerges across Ricoeur's oeuvre and establish points of connection for future developments that might draw inspiration from this body of thought.

I want to thank R. L. Fosdick, M. E. Gurtin and W. O. Williams for their detailed criticism of the manuscript. I also thank F. Davi, M. Lembo, P. Nardinocchi and M. Vianello for valuable remarks prompted by their reading of one or another of the many previous drafts, from 1988 to date. Since it has taken me so long to bring this writing to its present form, many other colleagues and students have episodically offered useful comments and caught mistakes: a list would risk to be incomplete, but I am heartily grateful to them all. Finally, I thank V. Nicotra for skillfully transforming my hand sketches into book-quality figures. P. PODIO-GUIDUGLI Roma, April 2000 Journal of Elasticity 58: 1-104,2000. 1 P. Podio-Guidugli, A Primer in Elasticity. (c) 2000 Kluwer Academic Publishers. CHAPTER I Strain 1. Deformation. Displacement Let 8 be a 3-dimensional Euclidean space, and let V be the vector space associated with 8. We distinguish a point p E 8 both from its position vector p(p):= (p-o) E V with respect to a chosen origin 0 E 8 and from any triplet (~1, ~2, ~3) E R3 of coordinates that we may use to label p. Moreover, we endow V with the usual inner product structure, and orient it in one of the two possible manners. It then makes sense to consider the inner product a .
