Emmy Award–winning television announcer and interviewer Michael Kay’s eighteen years as host of YES Network’s CenterStage have given him access to many remarkable figures in sports and entertainment. Now, this absorbing selection of the best, most revealing—and often surprising—interviews is available in one amazing collection, including some of the behind-the-scenes stories that didn’t appear on camera. From Kay’s very first CenterStage interview in 2001 with quarterback Steve Young, the show’s creators knew they had something special. Kay’s ability to get celebrities and otherwise private personalities to open up and share candid insights has become his trademark. Among the interviews featured in the book are those with Red Auerbach, Charles Barkley, Mike Tyson, Bobby Orr, Sly Stallone, Jay-Z, Lorne Michaels, Paul Simon, John McEnroe, Rob Reiner, Seth Meyers, Serena Williams, Alan Alda, David Halberstam, Larry David, Bob Costas, Billy Crystal, Lindsey Vonn, Chris Evert, and Quentin Tarantino.

My Cannibalized Self

release date: Mar 05, 2016
My Cannibalized Self
This book is an autoethnography of the writer's experiences studying in a master's program in Japanese to English technical translation as a heritage speaker of Japanese He describes how his self-perception as a Japanese American and speaker of Japanese change through Japanese language study and the ways in which he approached his language study and crafted his sense of identity in relation to his heritage language and culture These approaches to language study and the hybridized, anthropophagic identity he created for himself were accomplished through the meta-autoethnographic procession of revision and through reflexivity In this way, the creation of the autoethnographic narrative paralleled and was connected to my process of language acquisition and identity development The educational experiences are contextualized in his early life and general educational experiences, how he perceived them, and how he perceived himself in them to give a sense of how he interpreted my successes and struggles in trying to learn his heritage language over the course of the three years he spent working on the degree. These successes and struggles are related to larger social and educational issues that heritage language learners face in studying their mother tongue, such as prejudice in the form of monolingual norms in mainstream language classes, to give a different, more nuanced understanding of these issues and to present new data that might not be collectible in other forms of inquiry. While this narrative relates only experiences from his point of view, Michael Allred often presents angles of different lived experiences through various aspects of his identity such as heritage language learner, world language teacher, and researcher in heritage language studies and world language education; as these different roles have also shaped his values and positionality with respect to issues in heritage language education The result is a complex text that describes lived experiences throughout his life and relates them to multifaceted issues in heritage language education to better understand this complexity.

Slavery in North Carolina, 1748-1775

release date: Nov 09, 2000
Slavery in North Carolina, 1748-1775
Michael Kay and Lorin Cary illuminate new aspects of slavery in colonial America by focusing on North Carolina, which has largely been ignored by scholars in favor of the more mature slave systems in the Chesapeake and South Carolina. Kay and Cary demonstrate that North Carolina's fast-growing slave population, increasingly bound on large plantations, included many slaves born in Africa who continued to stress their African pasts to make sense of their new world. The authors illustrate this process by analyzing slave languages, naming practices, family structures, religion, and patterns of resistance. Kay and Cary clearly demonstrate that slaveowners erected a Draconian code of criminal justice for slaves. This system played a central role in the masters' attempt to achieve legal, political, and physical hegemony over their slaves, but it impeded a coherent attempt at acculturation. In fact, say Kay and Cary, slaveowners often withheld white culture from slaves rather than work to convert them to it. As a result, slaves retained significant elements of their African heritage and therefore enjoyed a degree of cultural autonomy that freed them from reliance on a worldview and value system determined by whites.

XSLT 2.0 Programmer's Reference

release date: Nov 26, 2004
XSLT 2.0 Programmer's Reference
What is this book about? XSLT 2.0 Programmer's Reference, 3rd Edition, is the authoritative reference guide to the language. Without using the formal and inaccessible language of the W3C specifications, it tells you exactly what every construct in the language does, and how it is intended to be used. This book is a reference rather than a tutorial; it is designed for the professional programmer who is using the language every day. It is the book that people quote when they claim that a particular product is giving the wrong answer, and the book that implementers of the language turn to when they want clarification of the specifications. At the same time, the book is readable. Reviews of the previous editions of the XSLT Programmer’s Reference, which this book grew from, show that readers appreciate the background material on the design thinking behind the language, the essay on functional programming, the occasional dry wit, the gentle criticism of the language specification when appropriate, and the fact that the examples stray into a diverse range of interesting application areas.
