This volume examines the cultural meanings of high-level amateur and professional hockey in Canada during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In particular, the author analyzes English Canadian media narratives of Stanley Cup "challenge" games and championship series between 1896 and 1907. Newspaper coverage and telegraph reconstructions of Stanley Cup challenges contributed significantly to the growth of a mediated Canadian "hockey world" - and a broader "world of sport" - during this time period. By 1903, Stanley Cup hockey games had become national Canadian events, followed by audiences across the country. Hockey also played an important role in the construction of gender and class identities, and in debates about amateurism, professionalism, and community representation in sport.
The author also explores the connections between violence and masculinity in Canadian hockey by examining media descriptions of "brutal" and "strenuous" play. He analyzes how notions of civic identity changed as hockey clubs evolved from amateur teams represented by players who were members of their home community to professional aggregations that included paid imports from outside the town. As a result, this volume addresses important gaps in the study of sport history and the analysis of sport and popular culture.

Written by Diabetics; for Diabetics. Diabetes is now a prevalent condition that affects millions of people. Many of you will have, or most of you will know, someone who has it. This book has been written by a collaboration of medically trained diabetics - not by Medical Practitioners, PhD professors or salespeople. - They are people who until recently struggled to control diabetes with diet, exercise and high levels of glycemic drugs alone. After learning about products made from the Moringa tree, they were able to dramatically lower their blood glucose levels within weeks and continue to do so. They did their research thoroughly and found the pods and leaves of this unique tree dramatically lowered their blood glucose levels quickly, and that continues to be the case. They now want to share their knowledge and extensive research in a simple to understand way, so you too can also benefit from their experience. This book is not about a miracle cure, and the information provided does not claim to be an alternative to diet, exercise, glycemic drugs or for you to ignore your Medical Practitioner's advice. It is an aid, a supplement, which, when combined with the other factors along with your Practitioners supervision, can safely reduce your blood sugar levels, and benefit your health in many other ways. In these pages you will find genuine factual accounts and testimonials. This book will explain a little about diabetes and ways in which the properties of Moringa can help you. It also contains fun recipes and advice on its uses. Diabetics who are struggling with their condition will find this publication invaluable, as will anyone who just wants to learn about a natural product that promotes health and assists to combat other conditions when modern medicine needs help from mother nature
