There are celebrities—and then there are celebrities.” That’s the first line of J.K. Rowling’s latest Harry Potter short story, published this morning on her own website, Pottermore. Rowling, who has always had a strained relationship with her own fame, might as well be talking about herself. (She published her second pseudonymous detective novel last month, to solid reviews.) There are celebrity writers, and then there are celebrity writers—the kind who can post a 1500-word piece of writing on their personal website and immediately make international headlines.

Oct 15, 2010 ... Article: Lecture with Aygül Özkan. Newsletter Team. Hello my name is… Reminder Members Area. General Information. Planned Events in ... weather all the time but – by golly, do I have a few things to say about our summer!!! But, I will keep my word and shan’t say a word. From what I heard from many people it has been quite a busy summer for most of us. I hope that at least some of you got a bit of a rest and at least had time to enjoy the good weather while it lasted. Now the Autumn holidays are nearly upon us and it is time to review what we have been up to since June this year: News from the Cultural Heritage Circle 3 Tips for Kids Article: Historical Tram Ride. This event was run by an organisation called ‘Writers Ink’ and was held in English. We would like to thank this group for very kindly including us. It was a lovely and interesting reading. Our president, Marianne Wandt and her husband Adalbert invited us to their home for the opening match of the Soccer World Cup in South Africa between Mexico and South Africa. A huge group of 40 people from the IWA-BS followed their invitation and watched the match on their very large TV. Marianne and Adalbert had put up tables and chairs outside and offered us a splendid selection of cakes followed by a BBQ in great style accompanied by drinks and salads. This really was a fantastic afternoon and evening that was enjoyed by everyone who attended. Our sincere thanks to them both for hosting this event and for inviting all of us to share this with them.

Suzanna Logan, Iain Hunter, Brent Feland, Ty Hopkins, Allen Parcell Brigham Young University, Provo, UT, USA E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Web: http://biomech.byu.edu INTRODUCTION During distance running, ground reaction forces (GRF) of more than two times a person’s body weight are typical. Attenuation of GRF has been a major concern for shoe designers and manufacturers, as one of the primary roles for running shoes is to provide shock absorption. Additionally, in competitive shoes such as racing flats and spikes, the weight of the shoe has been reduced to improve performance. In comparison to most regular running shoes, spikes and racing flats have less cushioning and a thinner heel. Several studies have looked at the reduction of GRF in running shoes, but there is a lack of data on the GRF in competitive footwear. Studies comparing barefoot and shod running have found significantly increased loading rates and greater vertical impact peaks in the barefoot condition (De Wit, 2000). The objective of this study was to compare how GRF are influenced while running in training shoes, racing flats and spikes at a given speed, and therefore provide meaningful information that could influence the timing and frequency of the use of competitive footwear in runners.
