Life is not an accident : a memoir of reinvention by Jay Williams( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like millions of kids before him, Jay Williams used to pretend he was making the game-winning shot while playing basketball in his Plainfield, New Jersey, backyard. Unlike almost all of those other kids, he kept right on making shots until he became an NCAA champion and two-time national player of the year at Duke and the number-two overall NBA draft pick in 2002. But after just one season with the Chicago Bulls, a team starved for a new messiah since Michael Jordan's retirement, Williams destroyed his career when he suffered a horrific motorcycle accident. In an instant, the man with as fast a first step as any point guard in history could no longer do anything for himself, including walk. In Life Is Not an Accident Jay Williams shares his story-both heartbreaking and uplifting-of being a young man trying to wrest control of his life from his overinvolved parents, from the pleasures and perils of fame and money, and from the near-fatal mistake that threatened to define him
Sensitivity of Pacific Northwest mountain lakes to eutrophication effects of atmospheric nitrogen deposition by Jay Williams( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chapter 3 describes results of in situ nutrient enrichment bioassays conducted in mountain lakes within Mount Rainier, North Cascades, and Olympic National Parks. Experiments characterized phytoplankton species and biomass responses to nitrogen enrichment, and associated nitrogen concentration thresholds. This information is necessary to calculate critical loads and assess lake sensitivity to N deposition. Approximately 75% of sampled lakes across the three parks have concentrations below experimentally-defined thresholds, suggesting many park mountain lakes are sensitive to future N deposition increases
Life is not an accident : a memoir of reinvention by Jay Williams( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Ten years ago Williams was at the beginning of a brilliant professional basketball career, the Chicago Bulls' top draft pick. Then he ran his motorcycle head-on into a light pole, severely damaging himself and ending his career. In this intense, hard-hitting, and deeply profound memoir Williams talks about the accident that transformed him from a kid who had it all, thought he was invincible, and lost everything ... only to gain new wisdom. He shares behind the scenes details of life as an All-American, but also introduces us to a dark underworld culture in the pros: the gambling, drugs, and sex in every city, with players on every team
