Collection of seven classic films. 'The Guns of Navarone' (1961), set in 1943, follows a group of mismatched soldiers who are sent to sabotage two powerful Nazi guns situated on a Greek island. If their mission fails, the guns will wipe out the 2,000 British soldiers who are attempting to evacuate civilians further down the coast. The mission is led by the dispassionate Captain Mallory (Gregory Peck) whose clinical approach does not find favour with explosives expert Corporal Miller (David Niven). Meanwhile, the group's Greek patriot guide Andrea Stavros (Anthony Quinn) is nursing a grudge against Mallory for an old injustice. 'The Bridge On the River Kwai' (1957), based on the novel by Pierre Boulle, sees a group of prisoners of war forced to build a bridge in Burma for the Japanese, with Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness) the appointed leader of the men. When the Japanese commander Colonel Saito (Sessue Hayakawa) orders the construction, Nicholson agrees on the basis that the project will keep his men occupied and give them an opportunity to prove, through the quality of their work, the superiority of British engineering. However, as the bridge progresses and the prisoners strive to show their craftsmanship, Nicholson appears to lose sight of the fact that the ultimate object of the bridge is to help the Japanese win the war. 'Lawrence of Arabia' (1962) is David Lean's Oscar-winning biopic starring Peter O'Toole as T.E. Lawrence, the Oxford-educated British army officer who aided the Arabs in their revolt against the Turks. Teaming up with Sherif Ali (Omar Sharif), Lawrence crosses an inhospitable desert in order to join two separate Arab tribes together as a single fighting force. Aiming to achieve Arab sovereignty, he wins a series of military victories but always keeps his eye on the larger picture, doing his best to prevent the subjection of the Arabs to British colonial rule. Charlton Heston stars in the title role of 'Major Dundee' (1965), an epic Western about a Major who joins forces with his sworn enemy to destroy a band of Apaches. When Major Amos Dundee is sent to a prisoner of war camp after making an error at the Battle of Gettysburg, he uses the opportunity to gather a small, but ruthless, army to lead on a mission of revenge. Burt Lancaster and Lee Marvin star in 'The Professionals' (1966), following four soldiers of fortune who are hired by a wealthy Texan oil baron (Ralph Bellamy) to rescue his kidnapped wife (Claudia Cardinale) who has been taken across the Mexican border by a band of mercenaries. The four men, each regarded as a specialist in his field - expert marksman and tracker Jake (Woody Strode), explosives master Dolworth (Lancaster), horse handler Ehrengard (Robert Ryan) and Fardan (Marvin) whose skills lie in tactics and weaponry - make their way across the treacherous landscape to retrieve the beautiful kidnappee, but along the way discover all is not what it seems. 'Gandhi' (1982), Richard Attenborough's Academy Award-winning epic, follows the extraordinary life of Mahatma Gandhi (Ben Kingsley) from his beginnings as a young Indian lawyer to his triumph as a revolutionary. After being thrown off a South African train just for being Indian, Gandhi realised just how prejudiced people were about his race and decided to do something about it. Taking the matter into his own hands, Gandhi arranges non-violent protests in the hope of getting the attention of the South African government. Finally, Fred Zinnemann's classic drama 'From Here to Eternity' (1953) follows the events of the night before the fateful attack on Pearl Harbor. Private Prewitt (Montgomery Clift) is a new recruit at the military base, and has already fallen foul of his superiors due to his refusal to box on the company team. Given the worst duties as a result, Prewitt is befriended by Angelo Maggio (Frank Sinatra), a young soldier who is himself persecuted by the Italian-hating Sergeant Fatso (Ernest Borgnine). Meanwhile, Sergeant Warden (Lancaster), Prewitt's superior, treads on dangerous ground when he allows himself to get caught up in an affair with an officer's wife (Deborah Kerr).
Richard Attenborough's Academy Award-winning epic follows the extraordinary life of Mahatma Gandhi (played by Ben Kingsley), from his beginnings as a young Indian lawyer to his triumph as a revolutionary - whose philosophy of non-violent protest helped gain India its independence. The film won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

As a frequent contributor to Futures Magazine, MoneyMorning.com, Traders.com Advantage and other top financial publications, I know from experience that stock trading offers enormous profit potential for traders if you have the right tools for success. But, each year, millions of aspiring stock traders still come to the stock market but still fail to achieve any meaningful success despite being armed with the latest indicators or some expensive stock trading system. There are two main reasons: One, they lack a proper foundation in the study of price action and, two, they lack a method to show them where to find trading opportunities and when to pull the trigger. Price action is the language of the market that is spoken to you each day through price charts and, if you understand what its trying to tell you, then you'll never lack for low-risk trades again. But, you also have to have a stock trading method that provides a set of rules to show you when a trade is setting up with the least amount of risk combined with the highest probability of success. Without understanding either of these concepts, you're chances are slim that you'll succeed. But, if you have the patience, drive, and discipline to apply a few simple rules along with sound fundamental and technical analysis, then the odds are on your side that you'll succeed. In Simple Stock Trading Formulas, you'll read about the role of both the stock exchanges and stocks themselves so that you understand how the game is played. Next, you'll learn how to "look under the hood" to find fundamentally sound stocks that have the highest chance of becoming a high-performer, avoiding the stagnant, lifeless stocks that are going nowhere. Then, you'll get to the meat of the book and get a in-depth breakdown on technical tools, price patterns, how to spot compelling technical criteria, mindset, and a set of rules-based stock trading strategies that work in any market condition. You'll also learn: The nature of the market and how to use it to profit. What stocks are and what is their purpose? Why volatility frightens the majority of traders but how you can profit from it.

An 1/8th of an inch doesn't sound like much of an edge but in the Olympic 100 meter sprint it's the difference between taking home the gold medal or the silver medal. Like the world of sports, successful option trading comes down to a few simple edges that can be the difference between making the lion's share of profits or just ending up the lion's lunch on Wall Street. As a 25-year veteran of the stock and options markets as well as a frequent contributor to Futures Magazine, Traders.com Advantage, MoneyMorning.com, and other financial publications, I know from experience that the leverage and risk control provided by option trading strategies is unmatched. The dirty secret that most option trading books won't tell you is that most options end up expiring worthless. Worse, even if you're right about the direction and time your option trade perfectly, a rise or fall in the option's volatility can still cause a loss. And, for those who are trying to build up to option trading in your spare time, it can be tough trying to watch the markets from open-to-close when you're juggling work, family, and other responsibilities. To succeed, you need to arm yourself with strategies that put the odds in your favor, not work against you. The good news is that options have the flexibility to craft easy option spread positions that profit from time decay, not just price movement. Even better, using these option strategies, you can enjoy more winning trades, greater consistency in performance, and a smoother equity curve by making time decay work for you instead of against you. In this book, you'll learn: * How to pick the best trades and in what markets. * What tools you're going to need. * Detail how simple the strategies are and how to use them. * Simple tools to help you make your trade decisions. * Which moving averages help you determine the trend. * What simple indicators to use. * How to know which option to sell so that you make the most money. * How to know which option to trade to lower our risk and increase winning percentages. * What to do if things don't go as planned (this is going to be your backup plan to keep you from suffering unnecessary losses). * Risk management strategies to help you grow your account while controlling your risk. * And, alot more.

A young boy is crippled at 15. He live's in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and he's very happy for the next 60 years. What's his secret? How is that possible? The answer lies in it's title "Schmitty Love" that's the special part of the story. Schmitty never get's old in his heart. Unable to communicate through words, Schmitty forges connections with those around him through his winning laugh and his powerful heart. A mixture of tragedy and comedy Schmitty's story is told from his perspective, revealing his thoughts about the sometimes funny, sometimes dark world around him. "If you're a person who feels, who laughs, a person who cries and who understands obstacles and their realities, then this book is a unique window into someone else's heart," says Williams.
One of the most popular Cubs of all time--and now an executive advisor for the team--Williams reminisces about his early years, his Hall of Fame career, and his five decades in the game in this inspirational autobiography. In "Billy Williams: My Sweet-Swinging Lifetime with the Cubs," he remembers the sturdy values and selfless devotion of the people from Whistler who helped shape his character; people like Lilly Dixon, his grade school principal, and Virgil Rhodes, his high school coach, both of whom he remembered in his Hall of Fame induction speech, and also his father who lived long enough to see his son play in the big leagues.
Research scientists Adam (Kirk Douglas) and Alex (Farrah Fawcett) enjoy an idyllic existence on a remote space station until they are joined by inventor Benson (Harvey Keitel). Determined to create a super-race of robots, Benson manufactures a prototype, Hector, who gradually develops a mind of his own - taking on some of the more unpleasant aspects of his creator's personality in the process. The arrival at the station of the psychotic Captain James proves to be a catalyst for Hector to go on the rampage: but will his developing passion for Alex help or hinder the crew?
"What would Jesus do?" That's the primary question Thomas a Kempis answers in his universally acclaimed work, The Imitation of Christ. In 114 short chapters organised into four simple parts, this handbook on the spiritual life offers guidance on dozens of topics such as resisting temptation, avoiding hasty judgements, putting up with others' faults, remembering God's many blessings, self-surrender, minding our own business, and performing humble works. William Creasy succeeds in creating a dramatically different interpretation of The Imitation of Christ by working through its historical, cultural, and linguistic contexts. This book inspired the likes of St. Thomas More, St. Ignatius of Loyola, Therese of Lisieux, Dorothy Day, and Thomas Merton. Along with such classics as Augustine's Confessions, Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle, and Ignatius's Spiritual Exercises, The Imitation of Christ continues to confront each generation of readers with the perennial truths of the Gospel.
Ferguson Jenkins won 284 games in his Hall of Fame pitching career with the Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers, and Boston Red Sox, and he is the first Canadian to attain such prominence in the American national pastime. Jenkins' life story, from Chatham, Ontario, to Cooperstown, is compelling, and Fergie tells it himself in his own unique and inimitable style. A tremendous all-around athlete who has always been proud of his roots and representing his country during a lifetime in the game, Jenkins established a reputation as one of the greatest pitchers of not only his era (between 1965 and 1983) but of all time. A strikeout king who whiffed more than 3,000 batters, Jenkins earned the trust of his managers as a pitcher who completed what he started. Popular on the autograph circuit, Jenkins enjoyed a career as a major-league pitching coach and a baseball executive after his playing days ended, and travels thousands of miles each year to attend baseball and charity-related outings. He has sung "Take Me out to the Ballgame" at Wrigley Field and fished for wild salmon to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Fergie is an inside look at both the man and the player, examining the highs of excelling at major-league baseball and the lows of personal tragedy that helped to define his character. This is the story of a man who refused to be leveled by sadness and disappointments away from the playing field. It is also the story of behind-the-scenes good humor in clubhouses and what takes place on baseball teams as they live and play together for months at a time, as only Fergie can tell it.
