Thinking Small: The Long, Strange Trip of the Volkswagen Beetle
Sometimes achieving big things requires the ability to think small. This simple concept was the driving force that propelled the Volkswagen Beetle to become an avatar of American-style freedom, a household brand, and a global icon. The VW Bug inspired the ad men of Madison Avenue, beguiled Woodstock Nation, and has recently been re-imagined for the hipster generation. And while today it is surely one of the most recognizable cars in the world, few of us know the compelling details of this car's story. In Thinking Small, journalist and cultural historian Andrea Hiott retraces the improbable journey of this little car that changed the world.

Andrea Hiott's wide-ranging narrative stretches from the factory floors of Weimar Germany to the executive suites of today's automotive innovators, showing how a succession of artists and engineers shepherded the Beetle to market through periods of privation and war, reconstruction and recovery. Henry Ford's Model T may have revolutionized the American auto industry, but for years Europe remained a place where only the elite drove cars. That all changed with the advent of the Volkswagen, the product of a Nazi initiative to bring driving to the masses. But Hitler's concept of "the people's car" would soon take on new meaning. As Germany rebuilt from the rubble of World War II, a whole generation succumbed to the charms of the world's most huggable automobile.

Indeed, the story of the Volkswagen is a story about people, and Hiott introduces us to the men who believed in it, built it, and sold it: Ferdinand Porsche, the visionary Austrian automobile designer whose futuristic dream of an affordable family vehicle was fatally compromised by his patron Adolf Hitler's monomaniacal drive toward war; Heinrich Nordhoff, the forward-thinking German industrialist whose management innovations made mass production of the Beetle a reality; and Bill Bernbach, the Jewish American advertising executive whose team of Madison Avenue mavericks dreamed up the legendary ad campaign that transformed the quintessential German compact into an outsize worldwide phenomenon.

Thinking Small is the remarkable story of an automobile and an idea. Hatched in an age of darkness, the Beetle emerged into the light of a new era as a symbol of individuality and personal mobility-a triumph not of the will but of the imagination.

UNBORED Games: Serious Fun for Everyone by Elizabeth Foy Larsen, Joshua Glenn
2014 | ISBN: 162040706X | English | 176 pages | EPUB | 67 MB

UNBORED Games: Serious Fun for Everyone
UNBORED Games has all the smarts, creativity, and DIY spirit of the original UNBORED ("It's a book! It's a guide! It's a way of life!" -Los Angeles Magazine), but with a laser-like focus on the activities we do for pure fun: to while away a rainy day, to test our skills and stretch our imaginations-games. There are more than seventy games here, 50 of them all new, plus many more recommendations, and they cover the full gambit, from old-fashioned favorites to today's high-tech games. The book offers a gold mine of creative, constructive fun: intricate clapping games, bike rodeo, Google Earth challenges, croquet golf, capture the flag, and the best ever apps to play with Grandma, to name only a handful. Gaming is a whole culture for kids to explore, and the book will be complete with gaming history and interviews with awesome game designers. The lessons here: all games can be self-customized, or hacked. You can even make up your own games. Some could even change the world.

The original UNBORED has taken its place as a much beloved, distinctly contemporary family brand. UNBORED Games extends the franchise — to be followed by UNBORED Adventure — in a new handy flexibound format, illustrated in full color throughout. Soon, there will be a whole shelf of serious fun the whole family can enjoy indoors, outdoors, online and offline.

No Land! No House! No Vote!: Voices from Symphony Way by Symphony Way Pavement Dwellers
English | 2011-03-01 | ISBN: 1906387842 | PDF | 160 pages | 12,7 MB

No Land! No House! No Vote!: Voices from Symphony Way
Early in 2007, hundreds of families living in shacks in Cape Town were moved into houses they had been waiting for since the end of the apartheid. But soon they were told that the move had been illegal, and they were kicked out of their new homes. They built shacks next to the road opposite the housing project and hundreds organized themselves into the Symphony Way Anti-Eviction Campaign, vowing to stay on the road until the government gave them permanent housing. This anthology of stories of justice miscarried, of violence domestic and public, of bigotry and xenophobia, is both testimony and poetry. This book is a means to dignity, a way for the poor to reflect and be reflected. It is testimony that there's thinking in the shacks, that there are humans who dialogue, theorize, and fight to bring about change.

David G. Pietramala, Neil A. Grauer, "Lacrosse: Technique and Tradition, The Second Edition of the Bob Scott Classic"
English | 2006 | ISBN: 0801884101, 0801883717 | 312 pages | PDF | 10,8 MB

Lacrosse: Technique and Tradition, The Second Edition of the Bob Scott Classic
For thirty years Bob Scott's Lacrosse has been the ultimate guide to the "fastest game on two feet," explaining the men's game at its highest level and promoting the Johns Hopkins philosophy, which has become synonymous with lacrosse excellence.

In this long-awaited updated edition, Coach Dave Pietramala, whose Blue Jays won the 2007 and 2005 NCAA men's lacrosse championships, and Neil Grauer, a Hopkins graduate and veteran writer on lacrosse, among other subjects, have reworked every chapter, modernizing sections on rules, equipment, preparation, and tactics. They revisit topics such as drills and skills for specific positions, game strategy, clearing tactics, and the history of the game itself-including a section on the Johns Hopkins contributions to lacrosse. New diagrams and images help to clarify concepts and instructions in the text. Action and instructional photos by Hopkins photographer James Van Rensselaer capture some of the drama from the 2005 championship year and accompany the teaching chapters.

Like the Bob Scott book on which it builds, this edition will soon become familiar to every serious student of the sport.

Love and Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships

FREEDownload : Love and Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships

David Levy, "Love and Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships"
2008 | ISBN-10: 0061359807, 0061359750 | 352 pages | PDF, EPUB, MOBI | 5 MB

Love and Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships
Love, marriage, and sex with robots? Not in a million years? Maybe a whole lot sooner!

A leading expert in artificial intelligence, David Levy argues that the entities we once deemed cold and mechanical will soon become the objects of real companionship and human desire. He shows how automata have evolved and how human interactions with technology have changed over the years. Levy explores many aspects of human relationships-the reasons we fall in love, why we form emotional attachments to animals and virtual pets, and why these same attachments could extend to love for robots. Levy also examines how society's ideas about what constitutes normal sex have changed-and will continue to change-as sexual technology becomes increasingly sophisticated.

Shocking, eye-opening, provocative, and utterly convincing, Love and Sex with Robots is compelling reading for anyone with an open mind.

Flanders 1915 (Images of War)
By Christmas 1914 Britain's Regular Army had virtually ceased to exist. Four months of hard fighting had drained its manpower and the Territorial Army were called on to plug the gaps. The part-timers leapt at the chance to serve their country overseas and were soon on their way to the trenches and the harsh realities of war on the Western Front.

Cable Confidence: A Guide to Textured Knitting by Sara Louise Harper
Think cables are too tricky to master? Debunk that myth today! Cabling is just a series of knits and purls. If you can knit and purl, you already have the foundation for making
gorgeous textured sweaters. A new knitting world will open up as soon as you learn the basics.

– Unlock the mysteries of reading stitch charts, using cable needles, swatching, and much more with this beginner friendly guide

– Start with the easiest stitches, and then move on to more complex techniques, one step at a time

– Knit up starter projects like pillows, scarves, and an afghan, and then move on to gorgeous pullovers and cardigans 14 projects in all

There are 5 very nice aran sweaters all classic mode which usually means drop down shoulders. What is interesting to me is the beauty of the aran combinations which is not so easy to design and with a pullover you do have more scope to do just that. For example, I find the cover sweater to be very aesthetically pleasing. The final sweater in the book, Ciaran pullover, is another stunning aran with a beautiful central cable pattern set off by mirrored cables on the sides. The Fiona vest uses an allover cable plus zipper. The first two sweaters are aimed for beginners with simpler cables. There are 9 pullovers, one v-neck cardigan, one cardigan vest, 3 pillows, one scarf, one felted bag and one hat. Photos in color are good as are the charts and schematics. Sizes go from finished chest of 36" to 54" in some examples. Most yarns called for are worsted weight or #4 on the yarn system. All the sleeves are done drop down which was the standard method until about a year ago and this book was probably begun a few years back. The sleeves don't look very good on the models as they are longer than the models' arms and also appear to be too wide. Certainly the more advanced knitter can change the sleeves to fit more attractively. For anyone interested in aran and cabled sweaters, this is an excellent choice.
