Über Generationen hinweg hat man uns beigebracht, dass wir Kälte meiden und uns warm anziehen müssen, um zu verhindern, dass wir krank werden. Wim Hof praktiziert das Gegenteil: Er setzt seinen Körper Temperaturen unterhalb des Gefrierpunkts aus – ohne dabei Schmerzen zu empfinden oder gesundheitlichen Schaden zu nehmen. Internationale Bekanntheit erlangte er, weil er nahe des Polarkreises bei minus 20 Grad Celsius barfuß und nur mit Mütze und Shorts bekleidet einen Marathon gelaufen und durch arktisches Eis geschwommen ist. Der Niederländer nutzt eine spezielle, von ihm entwickelte Atem- und Konzentrationstechnik, um seine Körpertemperatur konstant zu halten und somit sein Immunsystem durch Kälte zu stärken. Um von dem positiven Effekt der Kälte auf die Gesundheit und Leistungsfähigkeit zu profitieren, muss man aber weder Extremsportler sein noch im Polarmeer baden. Es ist bereits ausreichend, regelmäßig auf eine bestimmte Art kalt zu duschen und Wims Atemtechniken anzuwenden. Dadurch werden nicht nur das Immunsystem und der Stoffwechsel günstig beeinflusst, auch Krankheiten wie Rheuma, Morbus Crohn, Asthma, diverse Entzündungen und sogar Depressionen lassen sich besiegen oder zumindest abschwächen. In diesem Buch informieren Wim Hof und Koen de Jong über die medizinischen Hintergründe der Iceman-Methode, erklären, warum sie funktioniert, und geben eine praktische Anleitung, wie man sie in 30 Tagen erlernen kann.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,3, Universitat Mannheim, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit The Iceman Cometh beendete Eugene O'Neill im Jahre 1946 seine zwolfjahrige Abwesenheit von der amerikanischen Buhne und konfrontierte das Publikum mit einer Parabel uber den bedauernswerten Zustand des Menschen. Bereits 1939 geschrie-ben, hatte O'Neill das Drama angesichts der Schrecken des Zweiten Weltkriegs uber Jahre verschlossen gehalten, da er eine Auffuhrung als unangemessen empfunden hatte. In einem Brief heisst es: "The Iceman Cometh would be wrong now. A New York audience could neither see nor hear its meaning. [...] But after the war is over, I am afraid from present indications that American audiences will understand a lot of The I-ceman Cometh only too well." Allerdings zogerte O'Neill auch nach dem Krieg eine Produktion hinaus. Vom Sieg der Alliierten beflugelt, konne das Publikum die Kernbot-schaft des Stucks nicht verstehen, so der Autor: "The Iceman Cometh might be a big success, if done well, but it would be for its least significant merits and its finest values would be lost, or dismissed because the present psychology would not want to face them." Erst nachdem der derzeitige Optimismus einer neutralen Haltung gewichen sei und unter den Menschen eine zunehmende Desillusionierung eingesetzt habe, wurde The Iceman Cometh jene Wertschatzung erfahren, die ihm gebuhre. Doch auch nach der Urauffuhrung in New York im Oktober 1946 hielt sich der Enthu-siasmus der Rezensenten in Grenzen. Wahrend O'Neill The Iceman Cometh als "one of the best (plays) I have ever written" und "the most satisfying work of all" bezeichne-te, bemangelten Kritiker insbesondere die Uberlange sowie die vielen Wiederholungen. The Iceman Cometh sei "painfully repetitious," "tedious" und "bulky and unwieldy in the extreme," so das nahezu einhellige Urteil. Erst die Neuinszenierung durch Jose Quin-tero im Jahre 1956 erfreute sich grosser Beliebth

Philip Carlo's The Ice Man spent over six weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. Top Mob Hitman. Devoted Family Man. Doting Father. For thirty years, Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski led a shocking double life, becoming the most notorious professional assassin in American history while happily hosting neighborhood barbecues in suburban New Jersey. Richard Kuklinski was Sammy the Bull Gravano's partner in the killing of Paul Castellano, then head of the Gambino crime family, at Sparks Steakhouse. Mob boss John Gotti hired him to torture and kill the neighbor who accidentally ran over his child. For an additional price, Kuklinski would make his victims suffer; he conducted this sadistic business with coldhearted intensity and shocking efficiency, never disappointing his customers. By his own estimate, he killed over two hundred men, taking enormous pride in his variety and ferocity of technique. This trail of murder lasted over thirty years and took Kuklinski all over America and to the far corners of the earth, Brazil, Africa, and Europe. Along the way, he married, had three children, and put them through Catholic school. His daughter's medical condition meant regular stays in children's hospitals, where Kuklinski was remembered, not as a gangster, but as an affectionate father, extremely kind to children. Each Christmas found the Kuklinski home festooned in colorful lights; each summer was a succession of block parties. His family never suspected a thing. Richard Kuklinski is now the subject of the major motion picture titled "The Iceman"(2013), starring James Franco, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta, and Chris Evans.

From Hiroshima to the Iceman: The Development and Applications of Accelerator Mass Spectrometry presents a fascinating account of a breakthrough in science and the insights it has brought that would not have been possible without it. Involved since its invention, Harry Gove recounts the story of the development of accelerator mass spectrometry and its use as an ultrasensitive detection technique in many fields of science and the arts. A key advantage of the technique is that it requires only very small samples of material. The book explores the areas where the technique has increased understanding and provided solutions to problems, including the clean-up and storage of nuclear waste, the effects of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, biomedical research, the settling of the Americas, and carbon dating of many precious artifacts. Objects dated include the Turin Shroud, the Iceman, the elephant bird egg, and the Dead Sea scrolls.

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, with Ray Liotta and Chris Evans He was smart, merciless, and deadly. And it took someone just as tough to bring him down. A mob contract killer known as “The Iceman” for hiding a body in an ice-cream truck freezer, Richard Kuklinski boasted a personal body count of more than a hundred victims. Using guns, knives, poison, ice picks, tire irons, baseball bats, and bombs, the family man from New Jersey killed for fun, for money, to cover up his own crimes, and to satisfy his inner rage. Law enforcement officials knew all about Kuklinski and had a list of his victims, but couldn’t get near him—until undercover agent Dominick Polifrone posed as a mobster and began a deadly game of cat and mouse. In this harrowing true-crime account, Anthony Bruno delves into the mind of a cold-blooded killer, chronicling the Iceman’s grisly crimes and probing the bizarre dynamics of Agent Polifrone’s dangerous liaison with him. For as Polifrone carefully built up a case against Kuklinksi, he knew he was running out of time—because the Iceman was planning to kill him too. “Bruno puts his writing talents to white-knuckle use with a tight focus on a killer with no human feelings.”—Kirkus Reviews “Excellent . . . [re-creates] the tension and stress Polifrone experienced in fulfilling his risky undercover assignment.”—Publishers Weekly From the Trade Paperback edition.

A story of unrelenting, seedy brutality' - The Herald The elite police officers secretly launching Scotland's biggest ever offensive against organised crime had only one target. His name was Jamie Stevenson, but he was known as The Iceman, the biggest drugs trafficker the country has ever seen. Suspected of a string of murders - including the gangland assassination of his best friend - Stevenson's decade-long rise was built on ruthless ambition, strategic cunning and calculated, brutal violence. It left him at the head of one of Europe's biggest smuggling operations pouring tons of drugs and guns onto the streets of Scotland. "The Iceman" tells the astonishing story of Stevenson's rise and fall, offering a unique and explosive insight into Operation Folklore, the unprecedented four-year investigation that ended in his arrest. It lays bare the blood-soaked business of Scotland's most powerful crime lord and, for the first time, exposes how he made - and laundered - his dirty millions.
