Glenn Anderson

Glenn Chris Anderson is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey player who played 16 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, St. Louis Blues. Anderson was known to have a knack for stepping up in big games, which garnered him the reputation of a "money" player, his five playoff overtime goals rank third in NHL history, while his 17 playoff game-winning goals put him fifth all-time. During the playoffs, Anderson accumulated 93 goals, 121 assists, 214 points, the fourth and fourth most in NHL history. Anderson is first all-time in regular season game winning goals in Oilers history with 72. At a young age, Anderson admired the European aspects of the game, he was known to have a liking for participating in international tournaments, more so than his NHL contemporaries. When he was drafted by the Oilers in 1979, he chose to play for Team Canada at the 1980 Winter Olympics instead of joining the Oilers. Anderson won gold at the 1984 and the 1987 Canada Cup and he was a silver medalist at the 1989 Ice Hockey World Championships.

During his NHL career, Anderson was part of six Stanley Cup winning teams and he was a participant at four All-Star Games. He is one of only seven Oilers players to have won all five Cups in franchise history. Anderson was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on November 10, 2008 and his jersey number, 9, was retired by the Oilers on January 18, 2009. Anderson was raised in Burnaby, British Columbia, his father, Magnus, is the son of a Norwegian immigrant, his mother, Anne, is of Ukrainian origin. He has a sister; as a young child, Anderson did not enjoy the game of ice hockey. His first goal was in his own net. However, as he grew older, developed his skills, Anderson's love of the game increased over time; as a youth, he and teammate Ken Berry played in the 1972 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with a minor ice hockey team from Burnaby. Growing up, Anderson played hockey with his childhood friends. Anderson's hockey idol was not Canadian. Glenn produced the one hour documentary "To Russia With Love", released in September 2012, about the way Russia changed the Canadian ice hockey game.

Anderson began his junior hockey career with the Bellingham Blazers of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League during the 1977–78 season. In 64 games, Anderson recorded 62 goals, 69 assists, 131 points, the third most goals and eighth most points in the league. To top off his lone season in the BCJHL, he was named to the league's Second All-Star Team. In 1978–79, Anderson was recruited to play for the hockey team of the University of Denver in the National Collegiate Athletic Association by Marshall Johnston, the University team's head coach. Anderson played in 41 games, led the team in points with 55. In the 1979 NHL Entry Draft Anderson was drafted 69th overall by the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League, he opted to play for Team Canada during the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. Father David Bauer, in charge of the national team program, accepted Anderson. Father Bauer's influence on Anderson was significant as he would cite him as a major reason for his success; the team toured the world playing different opponents in preparation for the Olympics.

The practice Anderson received during this time helped "greatly improve" his skills. Anderson scored four points in six games during the tournament; the Canadian National Team program was discontinued in the Fall of 1980. Facing a choice of whether to rejoin the University of Denver, or to join the Oilers, Anderson chose the latter. Making his professional debut with the Oilers, Anderson recorded 30 goals, 23 assists, 53 points in 58 games in his first season; the Oilers made the playoffs that year and defeated the Montreal Canadiens in the preliminary round, three games to none. This was deemed a huge upset since the Canadiens had finished eleven spots higher than the Oilers in the overall standings; the Oilers moved on to the quarter-finals where they were defeated in six games by the eventual Stanley Cup champions, New York Islanders. During the playoff run, Anderson scored 12 points in 9 games, establishing himself as a "fierce" playoff performer. Anderson's sophomore season saw him record career highs in both assists and points with 67 and 105, respectively.

His team jumped from fourth place to first place in the Smythe Division. In the playoffs, the Oilers were the victims of one of the biggest upsets in hockey history; the following season, Anderson tallied 48 goals and 56 assists for a total of 104 points to help the Oilers remain atop their division. In the playoffs, the Oilers managed to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in franchise history. Anderson and his team were matched up against the Islanders who were looking for a fourth consecutive Stanley Cup victory. During the Finals, Anderson had several noted run-ins with Islanders goaltender Billy Smith. During game one, a slash on Anderson's knee earned Smith a two-minute slashing penalty. In game four, when the two crashed into each other, Smith's dive resulted in referee Andy Van Hellemond handing a five-minute penalty to Anderson; the Oilers Were The Spoilers|date=May 28, 1984|first=Jack|last=Falla|journal=Sports Illustrated|accessdate=October 11, 2013}}</ref> The season ended in disappointment for the Oilers as they were defeated in four games in a best of seven series.

Dorytomus taeniatus

Dorytomus taeniatus is a species of weevil native to Europe. It was first described by Johann Christian Fabricius in 1781; the larvae cause a small growth on the catkins of willows. Eggs hatch the following spring; the larvae cause an inconspicuous distortion of female catkins, thickening the rachis. Catkins drop earlier than the larvae pupate in the soil. Close examination of the gall is necessary as Redfern et al. note that sometimes, thickening of the rachis can be wound tissue rather than a gall and according to Plant Parasites of Europe identification is only possible by examining the weevils. The gall has been recorded from white willow, eared willow, goat willow, grey willow and purple willow. Adults are 4 -- brownish-black to black, they can be found from May onwards, browsing on the leaves, removing patches of tissue and exposing the network of fine veins. Found in western and central Europe including Great Britain and Scandinavia. Media related to Dorytomus taeniatus at Wikimedia Commons

Economics in One Lesson

Economics in One Lesson is an introduction to economics written by Henry Hazlitt and first published in 1946. It is based on Frédéric Bastiat's essay Ce qu'on voit et ce qu'on ne voit pas; the "One Lesson" is stated in Part One of the book: The art of economics consists in looking not at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy. Part Two consists of twenty-four chapters, each demonstrating the lesson by tracing the effects of one common economic belief, exposing common economic belief as a series of fallacies. Among its policy recommendations are the advocacy of free trade, an opposition to price controls, an opposition to monetary inflation, an opposition to stimulative governmental expenditures: There are men regarded today as brilliant economists, who deprecate saving and recommend squandering on a national scale as the way of economic salvation, and such shallow wisecracks pass as the ripest wisdom. "A magnificent job of theoretical exposition." — Ayn Rand “Those who wish to ponder the policy implications of the Austrian view at greater length can't do better than picking up a copy of Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson.

Hazlitt is one of the finest writers to tackle economic issues. In this book, inspired by Bastiat's conception of the seen and unseen aspects of policy, he examines a wide variety of economic interventions.” — Gene Callahan “Henry Hazlitt’s explanation of how a price system works is a true classic: timeless, painlessly instructive.” — Milton Friedman “I recommend that every American acquire some basic knowledge of economics, monetary policy, the intersection of politics with the economy. No formal classroom is required. There are countless important books to consider, but the following are an excellent starting point: The Law by Frédéric Bastiat. If you read and comprehend these short texts, you will know far more than most educated people about economics and government. You will develop a far greater understanding of how benevolent government policies destroy prosperity. If you care about the future of this country, arm yourself with knowledge and fight back against economic ignorance. We disregard economics and history at our own peril.”

Ron Paul “If I am able to get my children to read only one economics text in their lifetime, God forbid, it would be Hazlitt’s.” — Mark Spitznagel Economist J. Bradford DeLong said Hazlitt's book well states the Classical view of economics, but does not properly address arguments made by Keynesians. However, in 1959 Hazlitt published The Failure of the New Economics, a detailed, chapter-by-chapter critique of John Maynard Keynes' arguments. In a paperback edition in 1961, a new chapter was added on rent control, which had not been considered in the first edition apart from government price-fixing in general. A few statistics and illustrative references were brought up to date. In 1978, a new edition was released. In addition to bringing all illustrations and statistics up to date, an new chapter on rent control replaced the previous one of 1961, a final new chapter, "The Lesson After Thirty Years," was added; the Madrid-based Spanish publishing house Unión Editorial, which traditionally publishes books in Spanish language in defense of market economy and liberalism, released La Economía en una lección in 1981, 1996 and 2005.

A German edition, titled Economics. Über Wirtschaft und Misswirtschaft, was first released in 1983 by Poller in Stuttgart. In May 2009, it was reprinted by Olzog. Economics in One Lesson.
