Introducing Jonathan Gold; he was humorous, happy-go-lucky, super-athletic, unusually handsome and warm-hearted; he naively thought he had it made, he thought everything was pulling together for his college future, going his way; soon to be decorated high school Sports Grad, class of 1982, those fabulous football scholarships kept coming in for the asking, all at his taking lining up, maybe even a great job at the Gym/Dojo he belonged to; it seemed ridiculous; how could something like this actually happen to him? He, with all his martial arts trophy training and unheard of glorified health, how could he be shockingly shanghaied, subdued and shafted from his own bedroom in the middle of the night without being able to defend himself? Well, it sure did happen, and to him. And then, waking up in a floppy fog, to see a husky, hulking, hairy kidnapper Bruce and his lovely latino-looking lady doctor Sheila, his cohort asking him such odd nonsensical personal questions? Was it just some haphazard undercover mix-up, a big, glaring mistake? It gets even stranger for him when he winds up once more waking up after a harrowing, burning ring caper to see the most gorgeous gal, Selene, staring down at him, one with such beautiful violet-hued eyes and platinum hair, just as he had? Was it just a dream? Yet what they were being told about themselves by these mysterious abductors made it even more bizarre- and it takes an even more unbelievable turn when they are forced to take a very far, far away trip- and Jon wakes up even again somewhere else… with a funky piece of feather-light, haloed jewelry on his neck and some tunes and lyrics blaring that begins to change his entire life forever…

Dulce Pinzón: The Real Story of the Superheroes
23,99 € *

The Mexican immigrant worker in New York is a perfect example of the hero who has gone unnoticed. It is common for a Mexican worker in New York to work extraordinary long hours in extreme conditions for very low wages. Those wages are saved at great cost and sacrifice and sent to families and communities in Mexico who rely on them to survive. The Mexican economy has quietly become dependent on the money sent from workers in the United States. Conversely, the US economy has quietly become dependent on the labor of Mexican immigrants. Along with the depth of their sacrifice is the quietness of this dependence which makes Mexican immigrant workers a subject of interest. The main objective of this series is to pay homage to these brave and determined men and women that somehow manage, without the help of any supernatural power, to withstand extreme conditions of labor in order to help their families and communities survive and prosper. This project consists of twenty ambiance portraits of Mexican and Latino immigrants dressed in the costumes of popular American and Mexican superheroes. Each photo pictures the worker/superhero in their work environment, and is accompanied by a short text including the worker’s name, their hometown, and the amount of money they send to their families periodically.

I Believe That We Will Win
20,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Americans love to win. But when it comes to soccer, the world's most popular sport, the US women's team has delivered three World Cup victories in as many decades, while the men have not advanced past the quarter-finals in nearly ninety years. In October 2017, the US Men's National Team (USMNT) startled fans by failing to qualify for the upcoming World Cup, an episode that led both USMNT head coach Bruce Arena and US Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati to step down from their positions, and which launched a new era of reckoning for US Soccer as a whole. As the 2018 World Cup commences with the US sidelined, fans are becoming impatient: What will it take for the USMNT to finally rise to an elite level and bring home the FIFA World Cup Trophy?In I Believe That We Will Win, veteran soccer journalist Phil West delivers a compelling assessment of the history and future potential of American soccer on the international playing field. With insightful commentary and endless enthusiasm, West examines every aspect of the USMNT and their competition, detailing how the US returned to the World Cup in 1990 after forty years without qualifying, delving into the growing symbiotic relationship between the USMNT and Major League Soccer, and exploring how the US is cultivating young talent through MLS academies and the US Development Academy-and how Latino outreach initiatives, like the Sueño Alianza competition that brought Jonathan González to prominence, can be better integrated into US Soccer's quest for talented players. Along the way, West touches on the controversial tenure of former coach Jürgen Klinsmann, the role of dual-national players, Christian Pulisic and the new wave of American players playing abroad, and other issues that have engaged American soccer fans in spirited debate. Punctuated with dozens of revealing interviews from players, coaches, and journalists, I Believe That We Will Win is both the definitive history of American World Cup play and an incisive and inspiring analysis of America's potential to win big in the near future.
