    The Treaty of Paris, in 1783, formally ended the American Revolutionary War, but it was the pivotal campaigns and battles of 1781 that decided the final outcome. 1781 was one of those rare years in American history when the future of the nation hung by a thread, and only the fortitude, determination, and sacrifice of its leaders and citizenry ensured its survival.

    Today the Space Race is widely viewed poignantly and fondly as a race to the Moon that culminated with Apollo 11 "winning" the Race for the United States. In fact, it encompassed a much broader range of competition between the Soviet Union and the United States that affected everything from military technology to successfully launching satellites that could land on Mars or orbit other planets in the Solar System.

    In the 19th century, the Scottish writer Thomas Carlyle famously wrote, "The history of the world is but the biography of great men", popularizing the "great man" theory that the course of history is shaped by a select few heroic individuals. While historians and others continue to debate the accuracy of the "great man" theory of history, there is no question that the course of history is permanently altered by decisive moments in time, where a different result would have produced drastically different outcomes.

    TennisWorldItalia presenta Concentrarsi sotto stress di Alberto Cei. Avvertire un senso di stabilità e di solidità prima di giocare una partita di tennis è fondamentale: talvolta i giocatori (a volte in modo del tutto inconsapevole) eseguono un respiro profondo, ma spesso non è altro che un tentativo mal riu-scito di riduzione dello stress. Anche quando lo eseguono bene la loro mente continua a essere preda di pensieri inutili e dannosi.
