“Master everyday tasks and take on a variety of projects and repairs around the house [with] this DIY encyclopedia” (The Buffalo News). A modern and energetically designed reference with everything you need to know to roll up your sleeves and cook it, build it, sew it, clean it, or repair it yourself. In other words, everything you would have learned from your shop and home ec teachers, if you’d had them. The Useful Book features 138 practical projects and how-tos, with step-by-step instructions and illustrations, relevant charts, sidebars, lists, and handy toolboxes. There’s a kitchen crash course, including the must-haves for a well-stocked pantry; how to boil an egg (and peel it frustration-free); how to grill, steam, sauté, and roast vegetables. There’s Sewing 101, plus how to fold a fitted sheet, tie a tie, mop a floor, make a bed, and set the table for a formal dinner. Next up: a twenty-first-century shop class. The tools that everyone should have, and dozens of cool projects that teach fundamental techniques. Practice measuring, cutting, and nailing by building a birdhouse. Make a bookshelf or a riveted metal picture frame. Plus: do-it-yourself plumbing; car repair basics; and home maintenance, from priming and painting to refinishing wood floors. “Married couple Sharon Bowers and David Bowers serve as mom-and-pop guides through the never-ending task of housekeeping in this handy book of how-tos . . . Readers learning to live on their own will want to have this book on hand.” —Publishers Weekly “Anyone who studiously read the book cover to cover would become the paragon jack of all trades.”—Arkansas Democrat Gazette

Tricks Of Self Defence A Useful Book For Everybody

Until the publication of 'Tricks of Self-Defence' in about 1910, most, if not all, of the English language books on jujitsu and connected martial arts dealt more with the systems in question. These were often quite complicated and took time to master. W. H. Collingridge's concept was to publish a more practical, illustrated textbook for the everyday person in the street, outlining the effective applications that anyone can easily pick up in order to defend themselves. The result was this book which graphically outlines thirty-three ?Standing Positions?, and nine ?Ground Tricks?. All of these require little space to practise and notably some use arm or wrist grappling, while applying pressure to nerve or pressure points. In these respects, 'Tricks of Self-Defence, A Useful Book for Everybody', is considered to be the first of its genre in English to record Japanese techniques of applied practical self-defence.

How can a potato be a battery? How quickly will a shark find you? What food should you take with you when climbing a mountain? The Really Useful Book of Secondary Science Experiments presents 101 exciting, ‘real-world’ science experiments that can be confidently carried out by any KS3 science teacher in a secondary school classroom. It offers a mix of classic experiments together with fresh ideas for investigations designed to engage students, help them see the relevance of science in their own lives and develop a passion for carrying out practical investigations. Covering biology, chemistry and physics topics, each investigation is structured as a problem-solving activity, asking engaging questions such as, ‘How can fingerprints help solve a crime?’, or ‘Can we build our own volcano?’ Background science knowledge is given for each experiment, together with learning objectives, a list of materials needed, safety and technical considerations, detailed method, ideas for data collection, advice on how to adapt the investigations for different groups of students, useful questions to ask the students and suggestions for homework. Additionally, there are ten ideas for science based projects that can be carried out over a longer period of time, utilising skills and knowledge that students will develop as they carrying out the different science investigations in the book. The Really Useful Book of Secondary Science Experiments will be an essential source of support and inspiration for all those teaching in the secondary school classroom, running science clubs and for parents looking to challenge and excite their children at home.
