The Wood Age: How one material shaped the whole of human history
About this deal
The dunk shot was outlawed and would not be reinstated until the 1976–1977 season, which was shortly after Wooden's retirement. His legendary coaching career concluded triumphantly when Richard Washington and David Meyers combined for 52 points as UCLA responded with a 92–85 win over Joe B.
Trackways of an increasingly sophisticated nature were constructed on such a scale as to indicate large-scale employment of skilled human resources. Thanks to Andreas from Reißwolf for highlighting it was first published in the US market in 2020 by Scribner as The Age of Wood. In materials science discoveries and processes overlap, reinvent themselves, often finding new applications and solutions to long-established challenges.Carbon is added to increase iron’s tensile strength, but it also contributes other properties such as hardness, resulting in a metal so versatile that it is one of the great building blocks of the modern world. The main aim of technologists was how to improve iron by hardening it through physical and chemical processes, while there is also evidence that metalworkers were recycling bronze. Felling, chopping, sharpening, hewing, cleaving; these are all the basic actions of pre-historic wood-working techniques, from the Neolithic through to the Iron Age.
David Thompson was NC State's All-American, and Tom Burleson did an excellent job on defense against Bill Walton.On October 14, 2010, the Undergraduate Student Association Council of UCLA held a "John Wooden Day Celebration" to honour Wooden's 100th birthday and to commemorate his contributions to the university. Excavations in Dublin have revealed a remarkably structured society and distinct areas of production within communities. In 2000, Wooden was honoured with the "Lombardi Award of Excellence" from the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation.
