Then he's faced with something new, something every bunny must learn, something he might not be as good at: He has to make . . . a salad. Black Belt Bunny tries to escape. He even disguises himself with a fake mustache. But when he finally hops to it, he discovers that his seriously awesome moves come in pretty handy.
This revised edition of an extremely clear Navy training manual leaves nothing to be desired in its presentation. Thorough in its coverage of basic theory, from the lever and inclined plane to internal combustion engines and power trains, it requires nothing more than an understanding of the most elementary mathematics. Beginning with the simplest of machines — the lever — the text proceeds to discussions of the block and tackle (pulleys and hoists), wheel and axle, the inclined plane and the wedge, the screw, and different types of gears (simple, spur, bevel, herringbone, spiral, worm, etc.).
A chapter on the concept of work discusses the measurement of work, friction, and efficiency; this is followed by investigations of power, force, and pressure, with explanations of the uses of scales, balances, gauges, and barometers. The fundamentals of hydrostatic and hydraulic machines (such as the hydraulic braking system and the hydraulic press) are discussed in detail. The remaining chapters cover machine elements (bearings and springs), basic mechanisms (gear differential, couplings, cams, clutches), the internal combustion engine and power trains (including explanations of various transmission systems — synchromesh, auxiliary, etc.). Every concept is clearly defined, and discussions always build easily from elementary theory to specific applications familiar to anyone with the slightest interest in mechanics. Important concepts, machine components, and techniques are clearly illustrated in more than 200 diagrams, drawings, and cross-sections that reveal inner workings — all of these help to clarify even further an already clear and well-organized presentation. Although it was originally designed for use in U.S. Naval Training Schools, this book can be used to great advantage as a basic text in mechanical engineering in standard technical schools, and it will be immensely valuable even to lay readers who desire a basic knowledge of mechanics.
Not so very long ago it seemed reasonable to assert that the influence of religion on global politics was on the wane.
As the Western world became increasingly secular and the process of globalisation deepened, it seemed inevitable - on the surface at least - that the voice of religion was to be heard softly if it was to be heard at all. This has now changed, and changed perhaps irrevocably. As Jeff Haynes argues in this thought-provoking and important new book, various religious 'actors' are now significantly involved in international relations and have become a crucial influence on policy in a post-Westphalian world.
International Relations and Religion guides the reader through the complex issues at the heart of this topic with clarity and insight. The book starts with a close reading of the many theoretical and analytical concepts - notably Huntington and the clash of civilisations - that have grown up around this area and then concludes with a summary of the issues under discussion and attempts to put into context what it means to live in a world that is increasingly shaped by a whole host of diverse religious groups.

More than just a lavishly illustrated and highly readable book, Wrigley Field Year-by-Year is the result of a quarter century of meticulous research. Written by a baseball historian and recognized authority on “the Friendly Confines,” this is the first book to detail each year of the storied park’s existence. The book covers not only the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Federal League baseball team in detail, it touches on the Chicago Bears football team, basketball, hockey, high school sports, track and field, and political rallies. It references activities and changes throughout the park and in its neighborhood on Chicago’s North Side. In addition to pertinent Cubs statistics, the author’s year-by-year coverage includes: • A “game of the year” • A description of unusual and interesting happenings in the ballpark • A quote from the year that best captures its essence Supplementing the year-by-year approach are nine chapters that divide Wrigley Field’s storied history into nine “innings,” along with informative appendixes that will delight every Cubs fan, from the casual to the obsessed. The book’s easy-to-use format and wealth of information make it a resource that readers will turn to again and again.

The mountain atmosphere and the cozy cabin were all too wonderful–and the ambience may have been the reason why she felt so welcomed by James and Curtis. The truth is, she could feel their eyes upon her. “I’ve really missed this place, and I’ve missed you. Do you realize that it has been three years since we’ve seen one another? I know that we talk on the phone occasionally, but it’s not the same.” Seeing James again in person had made a trickle of sweat run down from her neck and through her cleavage. She squirmed in her seat, looking to both men. She would have liked to taken either one of them to bed right then and there. They all shared a bottle of wine as they reminisced. Jenna and Curtis became fond of one another, almost instantly, and the night rolled on. This book has a HEA and includes bonus stories, including menage, sports, billionaire, step daddy and more!
