Architecture in Continuity celebrates recent projects throughout the Islamic world that most successfully preserve indigenous forms while providing for the future.

Architecture in Continuity: Building in the Islamic World Today (Aga Khan Award)
It honors the insight, imagination, and skill that brought these projects into physical reality. The Aga Khan Awards Foundation's attention to the extraordinary effort required to develop an architecture both practical and spiritual is dramatically reflected in this volume, the second of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture series. In the words of the Foundation, the architects represented here provide environments in which people can "live, work, and practice the precepts of faith harmoniously and to the fullest." The eleven projects– found in nine countries from Mali to Pakistan, from Yugoslavia to Malaysia– range from hotels to mosques, from housing to an impressive air terminal for pilgrims to Mecca. The prizewinners show a deep respect for tradition, displayed in the historic buildings restored for contemporary purposes. Everyone connected with each project– the architect, client, and builder, the local craftsmen, artisans, and consultants– is honored for contributing to an integrity of purpose, to a spirit that is of and for the people. This collection of color photographs by some of the world's finest photographers exquisitely depicts the Award-winning buildings. The introduction and three essays, by distinguished architects and architectural historians, explore the projects in terms of the pressures confronting emerging Muslim countries, the influence of the Western postindustrial world and traditional Muslim forms and values.

Ideokinesis: A Creative Approach to Human Movement and Body Alignment by Andre Bernard
English | July 27, 2006 | ISBN: 155643569X | 224 Pages | PDF | 56,4 MB

Ideokinesis: A Creative Approach to Human Movement and Body Alignment by Andre Bernard
Mabel Elsworth Todd pioneered ideokinesis in the 1920s. Her book, The Thinking Body, described new ways to use all the senses as well as inner feeling and imagination to retrain the body to move with ease and balance. The system became an invaluable tool for generations of dancers, actors, and performance artists, thanks largely to one of its most important teachers, André Bernard (1924-2003). This book presents an introduction to the practice as well as a lengthy interview with Bernard and two meticulously detailed workshop protocols illustrated with 52 photographs and line drawings.

Amistad | 2006-02-01 | ISBN: 0060524316 | 576 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Bound for Canaan: The Epic Story of the Underground Railroad, America’s First Civil Rights Movement
An important book of epic scope on America's first racially integrated, religiously inspired movement for change

The civil war brought to a climax the country's bitter division. But the beginnings of slavery's denouement can be traced to a courageous band of ordinary Americans, black and white, slave and free, who joined forces to create what would come to be known as the Underground Railroad, a movement that occupies as romantic a place in the nation's imagination as the Lewis and Clark expedition. The true story of the Underground Railroad is much more morally complex and politically divisive than even the myths suggest. Against a backdrop of the country's westward expansion arose a fierce clash of values that was nothing less than a war for the country's soul. Not since the American Revolution had the country engaged in an act of such vast and profound civil disobedience that not only challenged prevailing mores but also subverted federal law.

Student-Designed Games: Strategies for Promoting Creativity, Cooperaton, and Skill Development

Student-Designed Games: Strategies for Promoting Creativity, Cooperaton, and Skill Development by Peter Hastie
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0736085904 | 192 pages | PDF | 6 MB
Students love games, but unfortunately, games are often taught in ways that alienate or exclude less-skilled students. Or worse yet, students find the games boring because they have no voice in how the games are played.

Student-Designed Games: Strategies for Promoting Creativity, Cooperaton, and Skill Development
Student-Designed Games: Strategies for Promoting Creativity, Cooperation, and Skill Development helps teachers and youth leaders make games fun again. This innovative, step-by-step guide helps students from early elementary school through college design their own games. In doing so, students

* develop tactical understanding as they design games;

* feel ownership and are more motivated to take part in the games;

* feel included because they have a voice in the scoring, equipment, space, and rules, all of which are limited only by their imagination and available resources; and

* learn how to respect competitors and work toward common goals with partners.

Through Student-Designed Games, students discover why rules are important, work cooperatively through the creative process, solve problems, and teach each other as well as their teachers. In games-making units, students design games within parameters presented by the teacher. They can adapt games they already play by changing various elements, or, with the help of game templates, create unique games that present new tactical problems that players must solve or overcome.

The games can all be connected to standards for becoming physically educated as defined by local, national, and international organizations and include ready-to-use assessments so that teachers can evaluate both the students and the games. The book also includes rubrics to help students understand their responsibilities during the game-making process and to judge the quality of the games they have created.

Student-Designed Games is the perfect book to help students be inclusive and creative, learn basic game forms, improve skills, and have great fun in devising their own games. Teachers will be aided in managing their classes through the detailed management strategies aimed at including their students' time on task. As such, Student-Designed Games is a valuable addition to teachers' class resources.

How to Make a Tornado: The Strange and Wonderful Things That Happen When Scientists Break Free by New Scientist
English | 2009 | ISBN: 1846682878 | 240 Pages | PDF | 17 MB
This is the newest title in the brilliant and bestselling "New Scientist" series. Science tells us grand things about the universe: how fast light travels, and why stones fall to earth. But scientific endeavor goes far beyond these obvious foundations. There are some fields we don't often hear about because they are so specialized, or turn out to be dead ends. Yet researchers have given hallucinogenic drugs to blind people (seriously), tried to weigh the soul as it departs the body and planned to blast a new Panama Canal with atomic weapons.

How to Make a Tornado: The Strange and Wonderful Things That Happen When Scientists Break Free
Real scientific breakthroughs sometimes come out of the most surprising and unpromising work. "Off the Leash" is about the margins of science – not the research down tried-and-tested routes, but some of its zanier and more brilliant by-ways. Investigating everything from what it's like to die, to exploding trousers and recycled urine, this book is a reminder that science is intensely creative and often very amusing – and when let off the leash, scientists can fire the imagination like nobody else.
