their specific discipline in order to develop muscular power of athletes with external resistance characteristics for that sport. Nonetheless, this is not always easy because power requirements often vary within a discipline. In handball, an athlete must generate significant power regarding both small (e.g., throws) and large (e.g. fighting for a position on the field, defence) external forces. Therefore, when designing a handball resistance training program, one cannot focus solely on power, bypassing maximal strength training. To optimize the effectiveness of

1 Jonathan Writes: The Charge—-Jewishness and the Future We two friends have previously considered in print (in a law review article titled “A Moment of Danger, A Taste of Death,” and a small book titled Time and Human Language Now ) the relation between the projection of a future of human extinction and the human (and a fortiori , the Jewish) near-inability to articulate or to discuss that future. The general difficulty in formulating a first person account of extinction is explored in Elliot R. Wolfson, “ Not Yet Now: Speaking of the End and the End of

States as well as in other masculine cultures (such as Britain and Ireland), there is a feeling that conflicts should be resolved by a good fight: ‘let the best man win’. The industrial relations scene in these countries is marked by such fights. If possible, management tries to avoid having to deal with labor unions at all, and labor union behavior justifies their aversion. In feminine cultures like the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark, there is a preference for resolving conflicts through compromise and negotiations ( Hofstede, 1991 : 92; 2001:316; Hofstede, 2001

Cultural diversity in Ukraine, especially national identity, is the most important element of intra-Ukrainian variation, affecting the initiation fights in the east of the country and the annexation of Crimea ( Korostelina 2013 , Kuzio 1996 , Shulman 1999 , 2004 , 2006 , Stebelsky 2009 , van Zon, 2001 ). Naturally, there are also other elements, such as religious diversity ( Kozelsky 2014 , Shabliy 2000 ), or the linguistic one, whose analysis is the

In some languages, the ethnonym Vlach is also used to this day for Italians (Polish: Włoch ). stated the following in his book: “The last attempt to extend Romanian origin to the east was made in the period 1941–1943 by soldiers and colonists. They failed. They got only as far as the Don River¼” ( Stati 2013 , 227). Stati’s pro-Russian view also supports the allegation that the name “Romania” was a result of a propaganda campaign spread by

, some 70 years later, the economy has disembedded from society to such an extent that it has further imposed a dis-embedding of the social from the political, because social pressures for relief are no longer mitigated by the political sphere. This is what may be described as post-democracy. In his short book on post-democracy, Colin Crouch (2004) suggests that the indisputable primacy of the economic domain, alongside the rise of global multinational corporations as well as a political class pandering to these, have led to a receding of democracy and the role of

Book, whose name would come from the name of the desert. Most of Muhammaďs companions, as well as the Prophet himself, came from one of these two cities. Even the first great dynasty of Caliphs – the Umayyad – were descended from the Arab urban elite of Mecca ( Marsham 2016 : 1–5). Along with the development of the empire created by the Arabs, the role of cities further increased. Cities such as al-Ba srah or al-Kufah in modern Iraq and al-Fustat in Egypt served as military camps from which further conquest was conducted ( Southall 2003 : 212). One of the main

areas in Poland. It is difficult to imagine how the concept of fuel poverty would have ever been identified if it were not for its unfavourable consequences on health. One of the key impacts of fuel poverty on human life is an increase in the number of deaths during winter months. Excess winter mortality is mainly due to the fact that some people require permanent access to facilities that enable them to fight effectively against disease, while others require specific (and specifically clement) environmental conditions to be able to convalesce successfully

provided enormous stimulus to the economy. Low interest rates, rapid expansion of money supply and increased debt fuelled economic expansion and growth of state expenditure. Major infrastructure and speculative developments encouraged some chambers to embark on partnerships with the private sector. The most notable was the rapid expansion of Galway airport as a joint venture with the chamber, which had started in a modest way in 1974 but expanded rapidly in the 1990s with new commercial fights and subsidy from the EU and the government. However, this growth period was
