National Hockey League Players Association | Research Paper | Juan Carlos Orduna | 27/11/2012 | | Brief History In 1917 the National Hockey League was born, thirty teams formed this multi-billion dollar industry and they competed to win the Stanley Cup annually. In the 1957-1958 41st season, National Hockey League players Ted Lindsay from the Detroit Red Wings and Doug Harvey of the Montreal Canadiens formed the first attempt to create a players labor association called the “National Hockey League Players Association (NHLPA). The attempt was formed because the league refused to offer financial information between players and then the NHL was sued over the issue of players’ pensions. The National Hockey League was decided not

Music Major Success Gladwell Summary The first chapter focuses around the seemingly statistical anomaly that the best young Canadian hockey players are almost all born in January. You almost never find a top hockey player born in the last quarter of the year. The explanation turns out to be that that the age cut-off is December 31st; someone born in January is going to have 10 months of development/practice more than someone born in October. The better players get extra coaching as they are seen as having the best chance at being a star someday. This has a snowball effect.

A Miracle on Ice: The 1980 Winter Olympics My second posting for the third era is about the 1980 winter Olympics that occurred in Lake Placid, New York. With all the tribulations going on in the American economy, the Cold War, and foreign diplomacy the American people were losing the great since of American pride that was once there. It took a group of 30 college kids from around the country to defeate a team of more or less professional hockey players from the Soviet Union to make the American people stand up on their feet and sing the nation anthem with pride. A picture can be found at the following address: http://blog.mortgagemarketinggenius.com/images/2008/08/25/1980hockey.jpg The Cold War, never actually being fought directly,

 Scientists believe that the winter of 2007-2008 played a dominant part in this piece of information. Since this season alone set back the entire global temperature rise of the last century, three quarters of a degree to be precisely. This has led to an old-fashioned winter: In Iran, eight people were frozen to death as they got trapped in their car, in Afghanistan almost five hundred people died due to the cold, China measured its coldest winter in fifty years and in Quebec, Canada, approximately five meters of snow came down from the sky- something which has never occurred before.  It is easy to just pick a couple of casualties and conclude that Al Gore was wrong. But it is more difficult to find a proper and scientifically correct cause for all of this.
