Aiming to bring the fun back into teaching and learning science with things that slide, pivot, turn, rub and work, this book offers help to teachers in presenting scientific principles and simple mechanics through hands-on, co-operative learning activities. Using inexpensive materials (for example, tape and paper clips), students at grades 3-8 should be able to learn to build simple machines, such as levers, pulleys, spring scale, gears, wheels and axles, windmills and wedges. Experimentation with these gadgets demonstrates how things work.

Biologists studying large carnivores in wild places usually do so from a distance, using telemetry and noninvasive methods of data collection. So what happens when an anthropologist studies a clan of spotted hyenas, Africa’s second-largest carnivores, up close—and in a city of a hundred thousand inhabitants? In Among the Bone Eaters, Marcus Baynes-Rock takes us to the ancient city of Harar in Ethiopia, where the gey waraba (hyenas of the city) are welcome in the streets and appreciated by the locals for the protection they provide from harmful spirits and dangerous “mountain” hyenas. They’ve even become a local tourist attraction. At the start of his research in Harar, Baynes-Rock contended with difficult conditions, stone-throwing children, intransigent bureaucracy, and wary hyena subjects intent on avoiding people. After months of frustration, three young hyenas drew him into the hidden world of the Sofi clan. He discovered the elements of a hyena’s life, from the delectability of dead livestock and the nuisance of dogs to the unbounded thrill of hyena chase-play under the light of a full moon. Baynes-Rock’s personal relations with the hyenas from the Sofi clan expand the conceptual boundaries of human-animal relations. This is multispecies ethnography that reveals its messy, intersubjective, dangerously transformative potential.

This four-part novel follows the lives and adventures of three teenage boys, from Victoria, Australia, to the seat of government in Whitehall, England, during eleven turbulent months. In Storm Ridge, we meet 14-year-old Wesley, his best friend, Graham, and their worst enemy, Scott. A class hiking trip turns to disaster as Wesley, Graham and Scott are trapped on a snow-capped mountain with nine others and forced to lay aside their differences for a chance at survival. Months later, on a camping trip with Wesley's cousins, the three experience a terrifying game of cat-and-mouse with violent drug traffickers, in Paddle Hard. Emily, an exchange student from England, becomes the kidnapping target of foreign terrorists after a failed assassination attempt on her father in Paris. Guided by an aboriginal tribal elder, the boys follow her captors through the remote desert as they plan to rescue her before it is too late, in Outback Heroes. And when Wesley and Graham travel to England as Emily's guests, they're determined to discover how the terrorists were able to find Emily in the vast Australian outback. What's uncovered is an appalling, twisted history of cruelty, betrayal, and attempted murder as the Enemies Within are finally revealed. Author Bio: Author J. William Turner was born the youngest of three children in Reading, England. His family immigrated to south-eastern Australia during the mid-1960s where he attended school and began working for the Australian Commonwealth Public Service in Melbourne and Geelong. Dangerous Days is his second published novel.

This volume presents a dramatic collection of significant combat experiences of 79 men in WWII, as told from one combat veteran to another. In the 86 chapters are stories involving all the various branches of combat service and all of the various theaters of war. Within reminiscences, veterans of dangerous encounters are much more apt to open up with details in discussions with men who have also experienced combat. Many find it emotionally distressing to talk of the war with the general public or to recall the horrors of warfare. This is not a history book nor any attempt to tell the big picture of grand campaigns. Instead it is a collection of personal involvements in one-at-a-time incidents of conflict. Many ask what was it like in WWII, for our conflicts in recent years have been vastly different.
