Full-time life on a narrowboat is a novelty for so many of us, and is endlessly fascinating. How do people downsize their lives and belongings into what looks like a large, crayon-coloured floating toy-box? Narrowboat Life answers all the questions we've wanted to ask about the ins and outs of liveaboard life on the inland waterways. The book is filled with beautiful, enthralling photography of the waterways themselves, the narrowboats that occupy them and, most importantly, every nook and cranny of their insides. Should you become seduced, the author gives solid hands-on advice about how to make a narrowboat your home. Accompanying these absorbing images, the playful and always informative text satisfies our curiosity to know, among other things: · How do you fit all of your stuff into such a restricted space? · How much does a narrowboat cost? · How do you hold down a job if you're always on the move? · Does s/he (the cat, dog, parrot) live on the boat as well? · Is it cold in the winter? Jim Batty has lived, worked and continuously cruised a 53-foot narrowboat with his partner and their cat for the past six years. The book answers a distillation of all the queries he has fielded on an almost daily basis since moving aboard – through towpath and lockside conversations with young couples, those close to retirement, single men and women of all ages, young families, tourists, as well as talking with a host of inquisitive (and initially uncomprehending) friends, relatives and colleagues. Everyone, it seems, wants to know exactly what the live aboard life is like: inside and out.

The Gods blessed Lieutenant Bak, head of the Medjay police, with a rare brilliance -- which is why he is the one to whom his commander turns in a time of need. The explorer Minnakht has vanished into the vast and merciless Egyptian desert -- or perhaps has strayed perilously close to Queen Maatkare Hatshepsut's well-guarded turquoise mines -- and before Bak sails north on a new assignment he is to seek out the missing man. But evil is traveling with him and his Medjays in the caravan they accompany eastward. Someone -- or something -- is responsible for the strange rash of deaths that is rapidly thinning the numbers of their fellow travelers. A straightforward search for a missing adventurer becomes a twisted knot of treachery and blood -- one that threatens to strangle the life from Bak and his men and leave them buried for all eternity beneath the blistering sands.

The Eqbas have come, bringing justice, change, hope to some . . . and death to many. Seeking to punish the human gethes who caused the near destruction of an ocean-dwelling race in the distant Cavanagh’s Star system, the Eqbas have finally landed on Earth. But another, equally important obligation has drawn them across the galaxy: the salvation of this environmentally ravaged world, a mission that could entail the annihilation of billions of humans. Former police officer Shan Frankland has come as well—along with her two lifemates, one alien and one human—carrying in her blood the parasite that makes her virtually immortal. Though she once vowed never to let the powerful contagion reach the homeworld she left nearly a century ago, she feels compelled to play an active role in the unfolding drama—and to follow the catastrophic events that have devastated civilizations and defined her life to their shocking, inevitable end.

Scientific Study from the year 2013 in the subject Engineering - Mechanical Engineering, grade: B+, , course: Electronics Systems Design, language: English, abstract: In chapter 1, the present research carried on the mature laser technology i.e. GaAs, in order to improve its efficiency. The packaging principle used for receivers can be applied for the packaging of the laser driver circuit and the laser source in a single module. The concept of FRACAS (Failure Reporting, Analysis and Corrective Action System) has been described and failure analysis technique for Electrical overstress (EOS) is described. An industrial approach to calculating the reliability of a system with some known data is described. Some challenges with respect to packaging has been discussed in detail and some methods to overcome challenges such as lattice mismatch has been described. Every electronic components or electronic systems have certain specifications based on which it is developed and all components have datasheets of their own. The datasheets consists complete details related to the product such as product design specifications, packaging type, power ratings, dimensions etc. Any components can be selected for a particular application by referring their datasheets. In chapter 2, a datasheet for a DC power supply has been developed covering most of the important details that may be needed for designing and modeling using software tools. The schematic of the power supply is developed and practical tests are performed on the power supply, which has been described in details with the test results. The power supply has four interfaces and the functionality and usability of these interfaces has been shown and described in detail. Before the large scale manufacturing and production of any product, it is necessary to conduct two basic tests i.e. Thermal analysis and vibration tests for any given product. These tests help us to get an insight to the reliability of the product. In chapter 3, the power supply is modeled using the software tool ICEPACK v13, using which thermal analysis is performed on the critical components and the temperature variation curves along with the simulation results has been discussed. The method of casing used for the power supply for modeling and the types of conventions i.e. natural and forced convention systems has been compared and discussed. An experimental set up used for performing vibration testing on the power supply has been demonstrated and described in detail.

These days Maori cop Tito Ihaka is leading a quieter life in the Wairarapa. Five years earlier he?d sought to step into the shoes of his long-time boss Detective Inspector Finbar McGrail after the latter?s promotion to Auckland District Commander. Dogged by the fall-out from his handling of the hit and run death of a prominent businesswoman, Ihaka was overlooked for a younger, more presentable candidate. After a men?s room confrontation with his new boss?s right-hand man, Ihaka was sent into exile. Out of the blue McGrail summons him back to Auckland. Christopher Lilywhite, the businesswoman?s terminally ill husband whom Ihaka suspected was behind his wife?s death, wants to see him. Lilywhite confesses that he had his wife murdered, but he dealt with the hit-man at arm?s length so has no idea who he is. In quick succession Lilywhite and another potential source of information are murdered. Ihaka?s old rival Detective Inspector Tony Charlton takes control of the case but with more corpses turning up and Auckland Central stretched to breaking point, he agrees to let Ihaka investigate the apparently unrelated murder of a young man about town. As the investigations expand uncovering a blackmail operation preying on married women, gang activities controlled from inside Paremeremo prison and possible police corruption, Ihaka realises that the cases are related and he?s hunting a faceless and prolific hit-man. Or is the hit-man hunting him? Finished reading Paul Thomas's 'Death on Demand' on flight to NY. Big, bruising police procedural set in New Zealand.

Discourse Analysis as Theory and Method is a systematic introduction to discourse analysis as a body of theories and methods for social research. It brings together three central approaches, Laclau and Mouffe's discourse theory, critical discourse analysis and discursive psychology, in order to establish a dialogue between different forms of discourse analysis often kept apart by disciplinary boundaries. The book introduces the three approaches in a clear and easily comprehensible manner, explaining the distinctive philosophical premises and theoretical perspectives of each approach as well as the methodological guidelines and tools they provide for empirical discourse analysis. The authors also demonstrate the possibilities for combining different discourse analytical and non-discourse analytical approaches in empirical study. Finally, they contextualize discourse analysis within the social constructionist debate about critical social research, rejecting the view that a critical stance is incompatible with social constructionist premises and arguing that critique must be an inherent part of social research.
