The Lillian Lectures
Author: Wendy Agnew
Publisher: Coach House Books
Hide under your bed! Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret meets South Park in The Lillian Lectures, a collection of short poems and cheerfully nasty illustrations that will turn your universe on its head. Remember how strange you thought sex and God were when you were little? Six-year-old Melanie is weirder and naughtier than you ever were, and now she's passing her wealth of wacky wisdom on to her little sister, Lillian. Your mom would never let you play with them, but you sure would have wanted to; Melanie is the ultimate bad influence.
This magnificent anthology presents the Irish tradition as a unity: verse in Irish and English, usually regarded separately, are shown as elements in a shared and often painful history. The selection begins in pre-Christian times and closes with nineteenth- and twentieth-century verse. Poets featured include Swift, Goldsmith, W. B. Yeats, Patrick Kavanagh, and Seamus Heaney.
The Aim Of This Book Is To Present To The Students, Teachers And Practising Engineers, A Comprehensive Collection Of Various Material Property Data And Formulae In The Field Of Heat And Mass Transfer. The Material Is Organized In Such A Way That A Reader Who Has Gone Through The Engineering Curriculum Could Easily Use The Formulae And Data Presented In Heat Transfer Calculations. Hence, This Compilation Is Primarily Intended As An Adjunct To A Standard Text.The Data Book Devotes Considerable Space To The Property Values Of Materials Solids, Liquids And Gases That Are Commonly Used In Heat Transfer Situations. Property Values For Various Materials At Different Temperatures Are Given For The Use Of Designers.The Formulae For Conduction, Convection, Radiation, Boiling, Condensation, Freezing, Melting, Heat Exchangers And Mass Transfer Are Arranged In An Easily Usable Tabular Form With Symbols And Units Explained Alongside. The Limitations And Restrictions In The Use Of Empirical Relationships Are Also Mentioned Alongside. The Empirical Formulae And Charts Have Been Selected.Suggestions Received Since The Appearance Of The Fifth Edition Have Been Incorporated, As Far As Possible, In The New Edition. A Number Of Charts And Data Have Been Added To Enhance The Value Of The Book. The Presentation On Convection Has Been Enlarged, Taking Into Account The Recent Publications. This Book Is A Comprehensive Collection Of Heat Transfer Information In Si Units For Students And Practitioners.
British Rust Fungi
Author: Malcolm Wilson, D. M. Henderson
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
W. B. Grove's British Rust Funghi, first published by Cambridge University Press in 1913, had long been the standard work on the subject. But it had grown increasingly obsolete in the light of the intensive research devoted to the group. As early as 1938, Dr Wilson, who was reader in Mycology at Edinburg University, was encouraged to prepare a new edition. Since then it became clear that what was needed was not a revision but an entirely new book. This was three-quarters complete in 1960, when Dr Wilson's illness and death again brought it to a halt. His colleague Dr Douglas Henderson then undertook full responsibility, completing the text and redrawing all the figures. This book was published in 1966 and is now being reissued. It covers all the species of Uredinales or Rust Fungi known in Britain at the time of publication and takes into account extensive research.

This volume is the outline of a poet who is trying to write about his conventional thinking. Ultimately, there is freedom. In Pure Water, the perfect world of the poet which all elements are inextricably linked was revealed. In Azotum, he loses his balance and falls prey to demonic arbitrariness. Tropics suspects the opportunity to participate in life. The influence of Father weighs heavily. When I Disappeared dissolves into a strange world. God then shows unreliable data in God Can Wait. With The Waitman reflecting the poet in his younger years. In Poems, he eventually takes to freely write what he wants. Roelof Broekman (1967) lives with his wife and daughter in the middle of the IJ in Amsterdam, where he composes and writes. Twenty-one of his poems were published in journals including Deus ex Machina, Kunsttijdschrift Vlaanderen, and Schoon Schip.

Writings Which Are Informative And Filled With Exceptional Insight Into The Practice Of Homoeopathy. Gives You A Solid Homoeopathic Foundation.
The last decade has seen radical changes in higher education. Long held assumptions about university and academic autonomy have been shattered as public and political interest in quality, standards, and accountability have intensified efforts for reform. The increased influence of the state and employers in the curriculum of higher education is exemplified by the increasing emphasis on so-called core or transferable skills; an emphasis supported by the Dearing Report which identified what called 'key' skills as necessary outcomes of all higher education programs. However, there is little research evidence to support such assertions, or to underpin the identification of good practice in skill development in higher education or employment settings. Further, prescription has outrun the conceptualization of such skills, little attention has been paid to their theoretical underpinnings and definitions, or to assumptions concerning their transfer. Thus the study reported in this book sets out to gain enhanced understandings of skill acquisitions in higher education and employment settings with the aim of informing and improving provision The findings and analyses provide a clear conceptualization of core genres skills, and models of good practice in their delivery, derived from initiatives by employers and staff in higher education Student and Graduate employee perspectives on skill delivery and acquisition are presented, together with a clearer understanding of t
