"The Blueprints to Our Home: A Physical Geology Laboratory Manual introduces the reader to the physical processes governing our planet and demonstrates how the multiple branches of science intersect to describe our world. Developed for a full term of lab work, this supplemental text gives the users hands-on, problem-solving experience by requiring the application of practical geologic concepts. Designed to educate students about both academic and applied geology, this laboratory manual addresses issues concerning how our home, the Earth, was built, how it continues to be remodeled, where all of our resources are stored, how to keep our living space clean and healthy, and how to identify and protect ourselves against inherently dangerous areas. The accessible writing style helps readers understand the ""why"" behind the ""whata and provides practical, problem-solving exercises that demonstrate the nature of scientific inquiry and the scientific method. The goal of this publication to equip students with the knowledge and tools they need to take advantage of the countless benefits our planet offers, while minimizing the risk of encountering potential hazards. As such, developing the necessary skills to read the blueprints of our home will foster an appreciation for the magnificence and complexity with which our planet operates and a desire to preserve and protect it. Elli Pauli completed a double B.S. in Marine Science and Geology at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL and was awarded an M.S. in Geochemistry from George Washington University. She is now the laboratory coordinator for the introductory geology courses at George Washington University, and is a professional lecturer in numerous colleges and universities throughout the Washington Metro Area, teaching classes in Environmental Geology, Physical Geology, Physical Geography and Geo-hazards and Land-use Planning.

The Unknown Technology In Homer

RRP $271.99

The astonishing accounts of almost modern technological achievements found in the Homeric Epics constitute one of the so-called Homeric Issues. "The question is whether such achievements existed in reality or were just poetic conceptions. Both views have their followers and adversaries

For example, robots, either in human form, as the golden girls serving Hephaestus, or in animal form, as the gold and silver mastiffs of King Alcinous, or even the intelligent, self-propelled ships of the Phaeacins, could hardly have existed in an era for which no evidence or even hints of prime movers exist, Even so, such references prove that the Mycenaean people were well aware of the importance of such devices, and this certainly acts as a catalyst for technological progress.

On the other hand, besides the unparallelled building ability of the Mycenaeans, as is the case with the Clyclopean Walls, technology specialists may locate examples of structures so advanced, that they can be considered modern with regard to materials, design and manufacture. Still, these can be well within the possibilities of the era. In fact, one can reasonably state, that, if the Mycenaean Civilisation had not collapsed, the world history of technology would be totally different

From the contents of the present book, a general conclusion can be drawn. The Homeric Epics include scientific and technological knowledge so vast and so diverse that it must be studied by specialists from as many disciplines as possible and also that this search must continue along with progressing science in our time, which will allow for increasingly deeper understanding of the great achievements of Greek Prehistory.


The Care Of Our Common Home By Pope Francis

RRP $15.99

Cardinal Bergoglio, Pope Francis, was chosen to lead the Roman Catholic Church in March 2013. He has been capturing the attention of billions of people worldwide because of his clear and consistent concern for people, especially the poor. His leadership style contrasts sharply with his two predecessors. On May 24, 2015 Pope Francis issued his first encyclical letter. "Laudato Si" (The Care of Our Common Home) addresses the environmental degradation of our earth. Humans are clearly responsible for most of this degradation including global warming, he says. Pope Francis earned a master's degree in chemistry before entering the seminary to prepare to be a Catholic priest. While his background is important for this letter, the letter is not about science. It is education about our common home and an appeal to all of us to reverse the damaging trend we are on. This trend can only lead to disaster, he says. Pope Francis' solution is grounded in faith but he urges dialogue among leaders of all religions, science, economy, politics, and others because the changes required are enormous. These changes involve moving from "extreme consumerism" to a more simple life. This book includes additional resources for the reader to expand his/her knowledge. It also has links to documents cited by Pope Francis and suggestions for group study. It also has a number of reflection questions in many places in the letter. This book can be used in many ways: 1) Individual reading and reflection. 2) Day of retreat for groups. 3) Parish staff studying and planning a course of action. 4) Diocesan study and reflection on an action plan.

Nineteenth-century Anglican Theological Training

RRP $291.95

David Dowland presents one of the first analytical accounts of Anglican theological training during its formative period, the nineteenth century. Until this time Oxford and Cambridge had been recognized as the most desirable sources of Anglican clergymen, but there was to be an upsurgence of little-known colleges attended by lower-middle-class ordinands which cut across the assumption that the training received at the fashionable colleges was superior. Dowland discusses the official attitudes towards the innovation of training large numbers of middle-class and lower-middle-class men for the ministry in an industrial age where a shift of power to the lower classes was widespread.
