The Terrorist Creed

"It is a sin to hate and terror to curse. All races are indispensable members of the human community and civilization. And should respect our differences and honour our common humanity" Disbanded from the Jihadist Movement on the orders of the Supreme Disciple, for failing to deliver, Abdul went solo. He was caught at Ronald Reagan national airport in possession of Uranuim-235, and was taken to a US federal prison. Omar, his son, was taken to an orphanage in Washington.At the prison gate, Abdul read his creed: 'Shake up the world oh Allah and bring the infidel to her knees, for the Islamic kingdom to reign. Oh Allah, let the infidel grow old, let her memories engulf her dreams and let her wither so that the children of Islam can celebrate the future.Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar' He made a spectacular escape from prison, and ...The homeland security, CIA, the FBI and the federal prison authority are panting for the finish line..., as the terrorist remains at large inside the USA.

When he boarded his plane at Johannesburg International Airport, South Africa, Goodwill, a brilliant chemist, was certain he would face climatic and cultural challenges in North America. On arrival, he was ambushed by fighting-for-survival syndrome, against an existential nexus of phobia and presumption of incompetence. Snubbed at corporate corridors and fenced off from professional gates, he took up a 'survival job' as a security guard and soon became a person of interest to the Royal Canadian Mount Police. Mrs. Cornby is a sex-crazed American, a widow and a Democrat whose son was killed by Sunni insurgents in Iraq. She died of overdose of a mixture of barbiturates, alchohol, Xanax, Benzodiazipine and Morphine, and a chemist was the security guard on duty the night of her death. Peter the taxi driver had $2million transferred to his Bahamas bank account weeks after Mrs. Cornby's death.

The Story of John W. Dobson and Formula Growth Second Edition

Up and to the Right

In 1960, Montreal stock broker John Dobson launched an informal investment club with a close group of friends and associates, including future prime minister John Turner. His Formula Growth Fund would go on to become one of North America's most successful investment funds, consistently outperforming the Dow Jones Industrial Average and attracting the likes of legendary investor Sir John Templeton. Up and to the Right tells the story behind John Dobson's investment success as well as his many contributions to entrepreneurial education. Craig Toomey provides valuable insight into Dobson's unconventional but disciplined investment approach, his uncanny ability to predict winning stocks, and his unwavering faith in the market despite its many ups and downs. Coinciding with the sixtieth anniversary of the Formula Growth Fund, this revised edition brings the company's story up to 2019, presenting new material and case studies and describing recent developments, including how Formula Growth tripled its assets under management to $1.5 billion through the launch of a successful hedge fund platform and expansion into Asia. Based on interviews with Dobson as well as with dozens of members of his extensive network of friends, colleagues, and investment professionals, Up and to the Right is a fascinating story about a great Canadian who believed deeply in self-reliance and free enterprise as well as the value of friendship, pursuing one's passions, and working for the greater good.

Number Nine Dream

An Autobiography Of Rob Howley

Number Nine Dream

Rob Howley was a late developer in terms of playing international rugby. But the Cardif, Wales and British Lions scrum half has more than made up for lost time. In Number Nine Dream, Howley looks back at his career, including his injury heartache, his late development, the pain of seeing a friend temporarily paralysed and the various scrapes with officialdom he has been involved in throughout his career. He talks in detail about the teething problems of professionalism and how he, one of Welsh rugby's all-time great players, has on more than one occasion been issued with an ultimatum by the West Wales Under 11s, Rob Howley was desperate to realise his boyhood ambition - to play senior reugby for his country. Injuries and subsequent operations set back his progress and when he finally returned to action, courtesy of a local valley faith healer, he found himself involved in one of the most controversial transfers in Welsh rugby history. Now a seaconed international and British Lion, Howley tells a story of pride, passion and extreme personal pain. Number Nine Dream is a compelling recollection of events on and off the pitch and highlights exactly what goes on in rugby's corridors of power and behind the changing-room doors.
