Excerpt: Hamit Alt ntop (Turkish pronunciation: , born 8 December 1982) is a German-born Turkish professional footballer who plays for Galatasaray in the Super Lig. He is a versatile midfielder who can play either in a defending or attacking role and on both flanks. He is well known for his flair of long-shot ability, as shown when he played for Schalke 04 and Bayern Munich. He is the identical twin brother of footballer Halil Alt ntop, who was born 10 minutes after Hamit. Alt ntop was part of the Turkey squad that reached the semi-finals of Euro 2008. After the tournament he was voted as part of the 23-man Team of the tournament awards. He won the 2010 FIFA Puskas Award for scoring the best goal of the season in an UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying match against Kazakhstan in a 3-0 win for his country. Alt ntop started his professional career in local German club Wattenscheid in 2000 along with his brother. As successful performances grabbed the attention of bigger clubs, he was transferred to Schalke 04 in 2003, where he played in a primarily defensive midfield role. In the 2006-07 summer transfer window, Schalke signed his brother Halil from Kaiserslautern. Schalke came second in the Bundesliga, only pipped by VfB Stuttgart by two points. Alt ntop with Schalke Alt ntop joined Bayern Munich for the 2007-08 season on a free transfer from Schalke 04. He scored his first goal in his first game for Bayern when they faced the Brazilian champions Sao Paulo. Munich went on winning the game 2-1 after his spectacular free-kick. Remaining as one of Munichs starters, he scored another left-foot goal out of 30 meters distance against Werder Bremen in the DFB-Ligapokal. Munich completed the match with a 4-1 victory. Alt ntop also scored a controversial penalty against Aberdeen in the first leg of their tie in the UEFA Cup competition on 14 February 2008 at Pittodrie. The initial penalty kick was saved by Aberdeen goalkeeper Jamie Langfield; however, Alt ntop scored with the rebound. The mat

Source: Wikipedia. Free updates online. Not illustrated. Excerpt: First edition cover"Farmer Giles of Ham" is a Medieval fable written by J. R. R. Tolkien in 1937 and published in 1949. The story describes the encounters between Farmer Giles and a wily dragon named Chrysophylax, and how Giles manages to use these to rise from humble beginnings to rival the king of the land. It is cheerfully anachronistic and light-hearted, set in a fantasy Great Britain of long ago, with mythical creatures, medieval knights, and primitive firearms. It is only tangentially connected with the author's Middle-earth legendarium: both were originally intended as essays in "English mythology."The book was originally illustrated by Pauline Baynes . The story has appeared with other works by Tolkien in omnibus editions, including The Tolkien Reader and Tales from the Perilous Realm .Plot summary Farmer Giles (AEgidius Ahenobarbus Julius Agricola de Hammo, "Giles Bronze-beard Julius Farmer from Ham") is not a hero. He is fat and red-bearded and enjoys a slow, comfortable life. But a rather deaf and short-sighted giant blunders on to his land, and Giles manages to ward him away with a blunderbuss shot in his general direction. The people of the village cheer: Farmer Giles has become a hero. His reputation spreads across the kingdom, and he is rewarded by the King with a sword named Caudimordax ("Tailbiter") which turns out to be a powerful weapon against dragons.Th..
