The Official Rock Paper Scissors Strategy Guide covers the whole RPS scene from the school yard to the pro level, including RPS culture around the world, the personality behind each throw, and secrets of the RPS masters. Learn how to intimidate your opponent and anticipate his next move. Get the answers to burning questions such as "Does Rock crush Scissors, or are Scissors dulled by Rock?" and "Who invented RPS?" Forget about flipping a coin or consulting your Magic 8 Ball -- Rock Paper Scissors is the only decision-making tool anyone needs.
A leading physicist and author of How to Dunk a Doughnut critically analyzes the modern science of game theory, its implications for understanding the evolution of cooperation in nature, and its applications in everyday human life, from the polite confines of an English dinner party to baseball strategies, quantum mechanics, and global diplomacy. Original.
The first English-language collection of a contemporary Russian master of the short story. Maxim Osipov, who lives and practices medicine in a town ninety miles outside Moscow, is one of Russia’s best contemporary writers. In the tradition of Anton Chekhov and William Carlos Williams, he draws on his experiences in medicine to write stories of great subtlety and striking insight. Osipov’s fiction presents a nuanced, collage-like portrait of life in provincial Russia—its tragedies, frustrations, and moments of humble beauty and inspiration. The twelve stories in this volume depict doctors, actors, screenwriters, teachers, entrepreneurs, local political bosses, and common criminals whose paths intersect in unpredictable yet entirely natural ways: in sickrooms, classrooms, administrative offices and on trains and in planes. Their encounters lead to disasters, major and minor epiphanies, and—on occasion—the promise of redemption.
Think you know the person you married? Think again... Things have been wrong with Mr and Mrs Wright for a long time. When Adam and Amelia win a weekend away to Scotland, it might be just what their marriage needs. Self-confessed workaholic and screenwriter Adam Wright has lived with face blindness his whole life. He can’t recognize friends or family, or even his own wife. Every anniversary the couple exchange traditional gifts – paper, cotton, pottery, tin – and each year Adam’s wife writes him a letter that she never lets him read. Until now. They both know this weekend will make or break their marriage, but they didn’t randomly win this trip. One of them is lying, and someone doesn’t want them to live happily ever after. Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. And an anniversary they will never forget. Rock Paper Scissors is the latest exciting domestic thriller from the queen of the killer twist, New York Times bestselling author Alice Feeney.

Pop music is a hybrid originally spawned by the parallelism of sound and image found in TV programmes, fanzines and record covers. At its heart is a feeling of direct involvement with people rather than musical values. These can function as sex objects or the embodiment of new lifestyles. For art, the system of pop music is as much a disturbing mirror as a rival event. Rock – Paper – Scissors brings together artists whose works and techniques have long been defined by a close relationship with popular music. In this catalogue, Dirck Linck, Nora Sdun, Christian HÖller and curator Diedrich Diederichsen ponder about pop music and art and their wild but reciprocal relationship during the last turbulent fifty years between the first TV pop stars and the YouTube reality of today. Published on the occasion of the exhibition Rock – Paper – Scissors at Kunsthaus Graz, June – September 2009. English and German text.

Understanding the Paradoxes of Personal Power and Taking Charge of Our Lives

Richard Osmond won the Seamus Heaney Prize for his widely praised first collection, Useful Verses. His second, Rock, Paper, Scissors, presents an extraordinary, collaged response to the poet’s direct experience of the terrorist attack in London on June 3rd, 2017. Osmond has written a powerful and challenging collection of original poems representing the complex, fragmentary nature of traumatic experience. Interleaved with these are translated excerpts of two very different texts: the Qur’an and the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf. Osmond’s translations from the Qur’an, in contrast to the stereotype of the Qur’an as a monolithic book full of judgement and proscription, focus on its vivid lyricism and the surprisingly riddling nature of its philosophy. Meanwhile, the visceral and frightening excerpts from Beowulf echo with unnervingly modern resonances. Rock, Paper, Scissors takes a bold look at the problems of interpretation of texts and of events: in taking every opportunity to keep the complexity of his difficult subject intact, and in his refusal to simplify some of the most urgent questions of the age, Osmond has written a book of compelling importance. Praise for Useful Verses: ‘A wonderfully original collection, which relishes and renews everything that poetry can do with language’ EDNA LONGLEY

From the back alleys of Philadelphia to the remote trails of Arizona's Red Rock Country, from a childhood marred by tragedy to the brink of an uncertain adulthood, Lizzy Ballard must come to terms with her extraordinary ability and the chaos it wreaks in her life and the lives of those she loves. Will Lizzy and her allies be able to save her from becoming the tool of others' ambitions, or a human lab rat? This ebook box set includes the three Lizzy Ballard Thrillers: Rock Paper Scissors, Snakes & Ladders, and The Iron Ring. ROCK PAPER SCISSORS Rock breaks scissors. Scissors cut paper. Paper covers rock. The rules are simple—except when it's people's lives at stake. By the time Charlotte and Patrick Ballard discover the damage their daughter, Lizzy, can do with her mind, it's already too late for Charlotte. They hide Lizzy away, trying to save others from the same fate, and trying to save Lizzy from life as a human lab rat. But they can't hide her forever. Little do they know that respected Philadelphia businessman Gerard Bonnay is responsible for Lizzy's ability. And Bonnay is willing to eliminate anyone who gets in the way of his goal of turning that power to his own ends. As her protectors are picked off one by one, will Lizzy be able to escape from Gerard Bonnay's deadly zero-sum game? SNAKES AND LADDERS Lizzy Ballard and her godfather Owen McNally are on the run after their fatal game of rock-paper-scissors with Vivantem's head of research, Louise Mortensen, and her enforcer George Millard. They find themselves in the Red Rock Country of Arizona, and Lizzy finds a mentor in Philip Castillo, a psychic counselor with his own dark past. While Lizzy works with Philip to try to control her deadly ability, Millard is hot on her trail, and Lizzy's power will be no defense against the weapon he has chosen. When Lizzy makes her way back to Philadelphia, Louise and George strike at Owen, and in a bid to protect her dwindling band of allies, Lizzy takes the fight to Louise's turf. In this deadly game of snakes and ladders, will Lizzy be rewarded for her virtues or punished for her vices? THE IRON RING Lizzy Ballard is headed to Arizona on a mission of vengeance: to kill the man who murdered Philip Castillo’s prison mentor. Meanwhile, Louise Mortensen and Mitchell Pieda find themselves under the protection—and at the mercy—of reclusive billionaire Theo Viklund. And Theo is intent on recruiting Philip to his cause as well. With the lines of communication cut, Theo sends Philip after Lizzy to keep her from executing her life-or-death assignment. As Lizzy’s allies struggle to understand exactly who the enemy is, Lizzy faces the killer, and even her special ability can't protect her.
By the time Charlotte and Patrick Ballard discover the damage their daughter, Lizzy, can do with her mind, it's too late for Charlotte.
