Science has never been so much fun! The Boy Scientist offers all the vintage appeal of Popular Mechanics's popular Boy Mechanic series combined with daring adventures in the laboratory. Taken from the turn-of-the-twentieth-century issues of Popular Mechanics magazine, these 160 experiments-based on chemistry, math, and physics-carry on the Popular Mechanics's tradition of making science engaging and entertaining. And even though technology has changed, and our knowledge of how things work has grown, the underlying scientific principles behind these activities remain sound. The projects include constructing a homemade mariner's compass; microscope without a lens; telescopic rangefinder; figuring out the height of a tall tree with the help of the sun; magnetizing watches and metal tools; crystallizing minerals in the lab; and building a simple radio transmitting set. Plus, there are thought-provoking experiments with gravity, pressure, and vacuums, and information on carrying out all these activities safely. As always in the series, charming illustrations throughout add to the nostalgic appeal. This classic collection is the perfect gift for every budding young mad scientist!

Super Ring is a short fiction novel full of action that blends real and supernatural powers. The book is entertaining and contains moral and educational elements. A crime syndicate who kidnaps healthy individuals and extract all their organs that they trade in international black market has recently transferred operation to Camanor, a peaceful community of about 8,000 residents mostly members of the once powerful Sabang tribe. Police Chief Captain Joshua Dean, a pure Sabang descendant was abducted by the syndicate while investigating mysterious disappearance of several Camanor residents. Fearing for Joshua's life, his seventeen year old son, Nathan, a top-rate quarteback of the Camanor High School football team sought help from the spirits through High Cloud, the great ancient leader of the Sabang tribe. Nathan was given by High Cloud the Super Ring that bestowed on him the combined strentgth of five dozen buff aloes, the speed of a riffle bullet, eyesight of an eagle, night vision of an owl, enhanced hearing of a deer and the ability to telephaticaly communicate with Joshua and Eagle Spirit which guided him in locating his abducted father. The power of the Super Ring enabled Nathan to locate the syndicate's base of operation where Joshua and the other victims are held. He then single-handedly destroyed its attack machine that included a miniature drone helicopter, a sub-compact radio-controlled armored fighting vehicle and machine guns installed in several parts of their custombuilt giant recreational vehicles used in the crime. Nathan killed several of the ruthless security personnel with the use of ancient weaponry provided by Nikandro, a mysterious Sabang elderly and thus ultimately rescued Joshua and the other victims before their organs could be extracted by the syndicate.

63 New and Updated Patterns for Driving and Sustaining Change “The hard part of change is enlisting the support of other people. Whether a top manager interested in improving your organization’s results or a lone developer promoting a better way of working, this book will give you tools and ideas to help accomplish your goal.” –George Dinwiddie, independent coach and consultant, iDIA Computing, LLC “Keep the patterns in this book and Fearless Change handy. … These patterns transformed me from an ineffective ‘voice in the wilderness’ to a valued collaborator.” –Lisa Crispin, co-author (with Janet Gregory) of Agile Testing and More Agile Testing In their classic work, Fearless Change, Mary Lynn Manns and Linda Rising interviewed successful leaders of change, identified 48 patterns for implementing change in teams of all sizes, and demonstrated how to use these techniques effectively. Now, in More Fearless Change the authors reflect on all they’ve learned about their original patterns in the past decade, and introduce 15 powerful, new techniques–all extensively validated by change leaders worldwide. Manns and Rising teach strategies that appeal to each individual’s logic (head), feelings (heart), and desire to contribute (hands)–the best way to motivate real change and sustain it for the long haul. Learn how to Focus on the best things you can achieve with limited resources Strategize to build flexible plans and go after low-hanging fruit Get help from the right people in the right ways Establish emotional connections that inspire motivation and imagination Create an “elevator pitch” that keeps everyone focused on what truly matters Build bridges, work with skeptics, soften resistance, and open minds Uncover easier paths towards change, and build on what already works Sustain momentum, provide time for reflection, and celebrate small successes More Fearless Change reflects a profound understanding of how real change happens: not instantaneously in response to top-down plans and demands, but iteratively, through small steps that teach from experience. Best of all, as thousands of change agents have already discovered, its patterns are easy to use–and they work.

Rusell Belk considers how and why people collect, as individuals, corporations and museums, and the impact this collecting has on us and our culture. Collecting in a Consumer Society outlines the history of museum collecting from ancient civilizations to the present. It also looks at aspects of consumer culture - advertizing, department stores, mass merchandizing, consumer desires, and how this relates to the activity of collecting. Collecting in a Consumer Society is the first book to focus on collecting as material consumption. This is a provocative and engaging book, essential reading for anyone involved with the process of collecting.
