With his trademark charm and biting wit, Michael Moore's documentary sets off on a rollicking journey to the heart of America, hoping to discover why the American pursuit of happiness is so riddled with mass violence.Moore boldly asks a question that post September 11, no other American dare ask: Are we a nation of gun nuts - or are we just nuts? For Americans, it is a damningly funny indictment of a culture of feat that is armed to the teeth and running amuck. For everyone else, it is a humourous warning about what could happen to any country that chooses the American Way of creating a massive permanent underclass that must be fought off with a constitutionally protected Uzi.Oscar Winner - Best Documentary Featurette 2003 and the first documentary film to be accepted into the Cannes Film Festival in 46 years, Bowling For Columbine has won critical acclaim throughout the world and has broken all box office records to date for a documentary film in the UK.
Tekken 7 is a fighting video game developed by Bandai Namco Entertainment and released worldwide by the same company in 2017. The game lets you control one of several available characters and duel with other fighters in fast-paced dynamic battles. The game puts a strong emphasis on perfect timing when launching various attacks, leading to the execution of consecutive combos of deadly and unavoidable strikes.Tekken 7 Digital Deluxe Edition ContentsDigital Deluxe Edition of the game includes the base TEKKEN 7 title, as well as the first Season Pass. This means you can immediately start enjoying the additional content in form of three separate DLCs, each adding something new for you to try, namely new characters, stages, costumes, and a Tekken Bowl minigame.The first DLC adds the possibility to play the fan-favorite match of bowling. It also adds multiple new costumes for your characters, including swimsuits for females and fundoshi for males.The second one adds a new playable guest character known from the Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting, and The King of Fighters games, Geese Howard, together with the related Howard Estate stage.The last one adds another playable guest character, Noctis Lucis Caelum from Final Fantasy XV, as well as the Hammerhead stage.StoryTekken 7 takes place shortly after the events from the previous title and focuses on the never-ending conflict between Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation, ultimately leading to the final confrontation between Heihachi and Kazuya.Gameplay and Game ModesThe game focuses on 1v1 dynamic battles, where you can play either against computer-controlled opponents or real players in multiplayer mode.The key to success is mastering the timing – by perfectly chaining the attacks you will be able to stun-lock the opponent, allowing you to launch a few extra strikes, giving you an edge in the duel.This time the game received two new important fighting mechanics, namely the Rage Art and the Power Crush. The first one launches a series of attacks that can deal as much as 50% total damage to your opponent’s health bar, while the other is a special attack that can’t be interrupted by mid nor high attacks, allowing you to keep your combo running or break out from the opponent’s one. Power Crush does not prevent damage – if you get hit during Power Crush, you will get normal damage.ReceptionTEKKEN 7 for PC received favorable reviews. Critics’ attention went mostly towards elements such as addictive gameplay and stunning graphics. Reviewers and players alike praised the roster of playable characters, among whose the ones from other games can be found, as well as detailed animations and a high but rewarding difficulty level. The competitive multiplayer mode was also mentioned as it is the mode players will probably spend the most time playing.

A Macat audio analysis of Robert Putnam's Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community. Social capital - the relationships between people that allow communities to function well - has long been recognized as the grease that oils the wheels of society. It facilitates trust, creates bonds among neighbors, and even helps boost employment. In his 2000 book, Bowling Alone, American sociologist Robert Putnam argues that Americans have become disconnected from one another and from the institutions of their common life and investigates the consequences of this change. Looking at a range of indicators, from membership in formal organizations to the number of invitations being extended to informal dinner parties, Putnam demonstrates that Americans are interacting less and creating less "social capital". Putnam did not invent the notion of social capital, but he was the first to take a broader view, looking at the social capital generated by people's engagement with the civic lives of their towns or cities. It would be difficult to overstate the impact of Bowling Alone, one of the most frequently cited social science publications of the last half century. You can find out more about how Putnam's ideas have been challenged and applied - and how his work has impacted thinkers in other academic disciplines - by exploring further in the Macat Library.

Celebrate the Dude with an abiding look at the philosophy behind The Big Lebowski. Is the Dude a bowling-loving stoner or a philosophical genius living the good life? Naturally, it's the latter, and The Big Lebowski and Philosophy explains why.

It also answers key questions, including: The Dude abides, but is abiding a virtue? Is the Dude an Americanized version of the Taoist way of life? How does The Big Lebowski illustrate the Just War Theory? How does bowling help Donny, Walter, and the Dude oppose nihilism? Yes, the Dude is deep, and so is this book. Don't watch the movie - or go to Lebowski Fest - without it. This book: Explores many of The Big Lebowski's key themes, such as nihilism, war and politics, money and materialism, idealism and morality, history, and more Gives you new perspective on the movie's characters: the Dude, the Big Lebowski, Walter Sobchak, Donny, Maude Lebowski, Bunny Lebowski, and others Helps you appreciate the Coen Brothers classic even more with the insights of Aristotle, Epicurus, Kant, Derrida, and other philosophical heavyweights PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.
