The series presents facts and figures from diverse fields in a way that urges the learner to ask questions and seek answers by engaging critically with the facts. The series also connects with the immediate world of the children, making it possible for them to see the topics studied under the core disciplines in terms of a larger context. The series further attempts to present knowledge as an active phenomenon and not just a passive acquisition. The Life Skills section in every unit hence presents the learner with situations where the child can actually use the knowledge acquired and make conscious decisions and judgments. Thus, the learner does not develop his/her body of knowledge by just committing facts to memory but by evaluating and assessing them in terms of his/her life and surroundings. Do You Know? is structured into units corresponding to various subject fields and treats the content in each unit in such a way that the learner is constantly encouraged to see the connection between different fields and hence gain a holistic view of the knowledge that each unit attempts to impart. There are carefully selected web links provided at the end of every unit to inculcate in children the appropriate searching skills online. They are thus likely to understand in due course what kind of sources can be depended upon for the acquisition of authentic knowledge. Key Features: • Units covering diverse disciplinary areas like Science, History, Sports, Mathematics, Art, Literature, Music etc. • An interesting variety of activities and exercises to make learning enjoyable • Images and illustrations incorporated in the active learning process • ‘Knowledge Bank’ to provide additional information to sensitise learners to interdisciplinary connections • ‘Knowledge Search’ to arouse curiosity and hone thinking, reasoning and research skills • ‘Fun Time’ containing enjoyable activities and tasks to hone visual, motor and analytical skills • ‘Do it Yourself’ at the end of every unit to provide suggestions for projects and classroom activities • ‘Do it Right’ at the end of every unit to hone important life skills • ‘Go online’ to provide a number of useful weblinks to facilitate research and further inquiry • Interactive CD-ROMs packed with brilliant graphics and audio-visual extravaganza guarantee superlative user experience • Numerous, interestingly designed activities and quizzes to keep even reluctant learners engaged • Fun-filled games and printable Flash Cards/Posters/Presentations/Theme-based Calendars in all levels Contents Unit 1 My World 1.

Regan Reilly has high hopes for her Aspen vacation -such as meeting an unmarried man! But a mystery soon has the chic detective snooping rather than skiing. Million-dollar paintings have been disappearing, and an old friend of Regan's - a folksy ex-con named Eben Bean - has vanished too. Everyone except Regan believes Eben has gone bad ... again. Her hunt to find him leads away from the tourist crowd into the founding families of this former frontier town. She never expects to get in hot water with a wild and woolly seventy-something lady who has a shocking secret she'd die to keep. Or get in over her head trying to save a famous portrait a dangerous criminal would kill to steal. Now the snow is falling, the plot is thickening, and Regan may be learning a new winter sport - trying to catch a killer while running for her life!

Why don't you just walk away? I banished the thought quickly. I knew I couldn't afford the luxury of such thinking if I was going to stick it out for the whole year. When Robert Twigger found himself training alongside the Tokyo Riot Police, he realised two things: He'd never been fit and he'd never been tough. In fact, as a student and poet in the relatively cosseted world of Oxford, he had done nothing to uphold the family's military reputation established by his grandfather. But once he joined Japan's most famous Aikido "dojo", (academy) he came up against all the challenges a life of tough physical action had to throw at him: Sadistic teachers, even more sadistic friends, repetitive training, broken limbs and the ominous "nobbies". At more than one point throughout the year-long course that would change him from pondering intellectual to "bodyguard" for two elderly Japanese women, Twigger thought of quitting. So what kept him going his friends in Fuji heights, Chris and Fat Frank? Sara, his Japanese girlfriend? A Zen belief in overcoming the will of the self? It was more to do with sheer grit and determination a refusal to be beaten. Though winner of the William Hill 1998 Sports Book of the Year, this is no ordinary sports book. Intelligent, witty, and downright compelling, the story of a self-confessed "softie" who took on some of the world's toughest and made it through, is one of the best books you will read this year. Peppered with insight into the exclusive Japanese culture and ex-pat life, Twigger's book will make you want to get off your couch and travel to the land of the rising sun straight away or at least, once you've finished the book. A brilliant and captivating insight into the bizarre nature of contemporary Japan. 0-575-40124-9.

Unbound. 8vo. 5pp extract, printed in double columns, illustrated with 4 characteristic Harper's engravings, salvaged from a damaged issue of Harper's Monthly, Volume LV, No. 327, August, 1877. From the opening paragraph, "One must be able to take several weeks from his business, and expend an amount of money not only greatly disproportionate to the sport, but quite beyond the means of many ardent anglers, before he can think of indulging in fishing for salmon, trout, pompano, or any other of the more famous game fish of America. But it has become quite fashionable to affect a knowledge of angling as practices in taking these larger fishes, while the charming sport of angling for the 'smaller fry,' or pan fishes, has been ignored or pooh-poohed as child's-play." Housed in protective mylar report cover with spine sleeve.., Harper & Brothers, 1877, New Delhi, India: Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd., 2014. Life in a small village of Tamil Nadu comes alive through the eyes and ears of the author. The stories take the readers on a rollercoaster ride-from the excitement of Jallikattu-an ancient bull-taming sport to petty politics during village elections; from a young man pulled off a bus by villagers and made to marry the girl he had promised; from the village shop where anyone could walk in and buy on credit to the protests over the Koodankulam nuclear plant. From the Uvari Legend that led to the setting up of the St Anthony's Church to a temple priest revolting against the installing of a hundial in the temple. The Lourdes of South India tells us about the famous church of Annai at Velankanni where everyone -Hindus and Christians, come to pray. Fascinating stories of women beedi makers, temple festivals, marriage rituals-all make the village come alive with characters whom we all recognise and identify with. Printed Pages: 280.. Softcover.

From a boy who narrowly escaped death during Partition (most of his family was not so lucky), to a juvenile delinquent who stole and outran the police, to a young Army recruit who ran his very first race to win special privileges for himself (a daily glass of milk). After that first race, Milkha Singh became an athlete by default. And what followed was the stuff legends are made of. In this remarkably candid autobiography, Milkha Singh shares the amazing highs of winning Indias first ever gold in athletics at the Commonwealth Games, the unbridled joy of being hailed as the Flying Sikh in Pakistan, as well as the shattering low of failure at the Olympics. Simple, yet ambitious; famous, yet grounded; temptations all around him, yet remaining celibate so he could focus on racing; a rich and beautiful girl who was desperate for him, yet fighting the world to marry his lady love, Nimmi?even as the on-field drama found its way into his personal life, Milkha was a man who defined his own destiny. And yet, for a man whose life was dominated by sports, he continues to remain disillusioned with the way sports is run? Powerful and gripping, The Race of My Life documents the journey of an impoverished refugee who rose to become one of the most towering figures in Indian sports.

One of America's most famous handicapper's reveals his million dollar secrets of successful, consistent betting. ; Review: "I have bought an estimated 30 books or booklets on winning at the race track, and Al Illich's method to pick big winners in the Daily Double is THE BEST idea I've ever seen. He learned it in 1941 and it still kills. On Sept. 9, 2006, I cashed my biggest winner using his method at PENN, paid $98.40 to win and $50.60 to place. By the way, I coupled his big winner with the favorite and another big speed horse and won the $1025.60 exacta! I track my DD winners and so far I've cashed 72 winners averaging $15.68 to win. I had another $69.00 winner at another track this past June. Al's book stays right next to my bed, I reread it often. He has a ton of other great ideas as well. This book is a gem, if you're interested in winning big payoffs. I have nothing whatsoever to do with Al or his book, but would love to shake his hand.

First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 0385475985 . 0.7 x 7.1 x 5.1 Inches; 144 pages; To movie audiences worldwide, Leslie Nielsen is best known as Lieutenant Frank Drebin, the zany hero of the hilarious <I>Naked Gun</I> films. But to duffers around the globe, he has long been famous for a different role, as the World's Greatest Bad Golfer -- the Guru of Bad Golf. Now, working with humorist and fellow hacker Henry Beard, Nielsen has drawn on a lifetime of brilliantly uninspired play to produce the unique collection of useless wisdom, spurious reminiscences, and pointless tips that is the<I> Stupid Little Golf Book</I>.. Painstakingly fabricated to look like the result of years of study of the game of golf, the <I>Stupid Little Golf Book</I> contains no dopey drills, no mind-game mumbo jumbo, no swing-wrecking instruction. Just simple common-sense advice on how to needle, wheedle, weasel, wangle, chisel, finagle, connive, and fudge your way to victory on the links, interspersed with hear-twarming tales of duplicity, chicanery, mendacity, and truly deplorable sportsmanship. Covering everything from fundamentals, such as the grip ("always hold the club at the thin end where that length of rubber stuff is, and not the end that has that curvy metal or wooden thing with the number on it"), to A Foolproof Way to Knock at Least Six Strokes off Your Score ("skip the last hole"), this is, finally, a golf book for the rest of us, by the man who put fun back into the game of golf. Leslie Nielsen is one of the funniest and most popular actors of our time. He has appeared in leading roles in innumerable films and is world-renowned as the lovable star of the phenomenally successful <I>Naked Gun</I> movies. Leslie Nielsen is, of course, the World's Only Professional Bad Golfer, whose many memorable awful shots have made him an integral part of the rich history of the game. Shots like "The Shank Heard Round the World," which ended the aptly named sudden-death playoff at Pebble Beach; the amazing "hole-in-none," 167-yard gimme on the short par-3 at Glen Abbey; and the unforgettable 440-yard drive to the green on the Road Hole at St. Andrews, with the cart in reverse the entire way. Nielsen has drawn on a lifetime of less-than-stellar play to produce the<I>Stupid Little Golf Book</I>. Here at last is a golf book that truly lives up to its name. Henry Beard was a founder of <I>National Lampoon</I> and the magazine's editor during its heyday in the 1970s. He is the author of several bestselling humor books, including <I>Golfing: A Duffer's Dictionary</I>, <I>Mulligan's Laws</I>, and <I>The Official Exceptions to the Rules of Golf</I>. ., Doubleday, 1995, London England: Carlton.

This is the definitive story of a dynasty: the Yankee yearsWhen Joe Torre took over as manager of the New York Yankees in 1996, the most storied franchise in sports had not won a World Series title in eighteen years. The famously tough and mercurial owner, George Steinbrenner, had fired seventeen managers during that span. Torre's appointment was greeted with Bronx cheers from the notoriously brutal New York media, who cited his record as the player and manager who had been in the most Major League games without appearing in a World SeriesTwelve tumultuous and triumphant years later, Torre left the team as the most beloved and successful manager in the game. In an era of multimillionaire free agents, fractured clubhouses, revenue-sharing, and off-the-field scandals, Torre forged a team ethos that united his players and made the Yankees, once again, the greatest team in sports. He won over the media with his honesty and class, and was beloved by the fans.But it wasn't easy.Here, for the first time, Joe Torre and Tom Verducci take us inside the dugout, the clubhouse, and the front office in a revelatory narrative that shows what it really took to keep the Yankees on top of the baseball world. The high-priced ace who broke down in tears and refused to go back to the mound in the middle of a game. Constant meddling from Yankee executives, many of whom were jealous of Torre's popularity. The tension that developed between the old guard and the free agents brought in by management. The impact of revenue-sharing and new scouting techniques, which allowed other teams to challenge the Yankees' dominance. The players who couldn't resist the after-hours temptations of the Big Apple. The joys of managing Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera, and the challenges of managing Alex Rodriguez and Jason Giambi. Torre's last year, when constant ultimatums from the front office, devastating injuries, and a freak cloud of bugs on a warm September night in Cleveland forced him from a job he loved.Through it all, Torre kept his calm, kept his players' respect, and kept winning.And, of course, The Yankee Years chronicles the amazing stories on the diamond. The stirring comeback in the 1996 World Series against the heavily favored Braves. The wonder of 1998, when Torre led the Yanks to the most wins in Major League history. The draining and emotional drama of the 2001 World Series. The incredible twists and turns of the epic Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series against the Red Sox, in which two teams who truly despised each other battled pitch by pitch until the stunning extra-inning home run.Here is a sweeping narrative of Major League Baseball in the Yankee era, a book both grand in its scope and fascinating in its details."Keywords: BASEBALL SPORTS SPORT JOE TORRE TOM VERDUCCI YANKEE YEARS 6th printing.

Condition, no black thumb prints, creasing to some pages at the start of book. Without the arrival of the Giulietta it would be safe to say that Alfa Romeo might not have survived the 50s. Some people may think that statement a little dramatic but there is a large grain of truth in it. The 1900 saloon had established the template that would be used by Alfa right through until the Alfettas of the 70s. As good as the 1900 was, the key people at the company knew that what was required was a smaller range using the same mechanical layout. The result of these studies was the design and development of a completely new DOHC 1.3 litre engine that would drive the rear wheels through a four-speed (later upgraded to a five-speed) gearbox. The first of the new Giulietta range that was announced in 1954 was the coupe, followed by the spider and saloon a year later. Because Alfa did not have the production capacity, a contract was let to Bertone for the coupe and to Farina for the spider. As an added incentive to the people, a special lottery was arranged with Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint coupes being offered as prizes. Only the Italians would do something like that! Bertone tooled to build around 400 units using soft tooling and a lot of hand finishing. Such was the response by the public to the pretty Sprint coupe that orders flooded in. New arrangements had to be made, and quickly. Soon, Carrozzeria Bertone had enlarged its premises and a proper assembly line installed. By the time production ended more than 40,000 had been built and sold!All models in the Giulietta range were powered by the 1.3 litre DOHC engine that at first developed 65bhp, but this was soon raised to 90bhp and in the later Giulia 1.6 litre versions to 115bhp. For its time, the Giulietta s performance was simply sensational, with the Sprint often being compared in magazine road tests to the 356. It was not long before there was a considerable proliferation of models using the Giulietta platform. The factory offered the Ti saloon and Bertone came out with the aggressively aerodynamic Sprint Speciale series that were built in small numbers while Zagato built the gorgeous Sprint Zagato, better known as the SZ. Both the SZ and Sprint Speciale are very much collector's items today. Other carrozzeria in Turin and Milan would build coupes and spiders as either one-offs or in very small series for their clients. In addition a thriving performance industry sprang up around the eminently tuneable Alfa Romeo DOHC engine. Production continued until 1965 when the next generation was introduced. Throughout the decade in which they were built, Alfa Romeo was able to establish itself in all major world markets, including America, where they sold in small but consistent numbers to people who appreciated their uniquely sporting attributes. The Giulietta, having celebrating its 50th Anniversary (1954-2004), set the template for all future Alfas insofar as they were spirited and nimble cars to drive fast and they had oodles of that Italian temperament for which they were justly famous. Included are road and comparison tests, owner's reports plus advice on acquiring & restoring a Giulietta., Brooklands Books Ltd, 2008
