Bible Stories through the Year: Lectionary readings for Year A, retold for maximum effect (English Edition)
Drawing on his extensive experience of engaging young and old alike, master storyteller Bob Hartman takes two readings for each week or special day from the Revised Common Lectionary and shows fresh ways to bring them to life. We all long to enjoy the Bible – to savour it and taste its sweetness. Yet often we do not do it justice, as there are particular challenges to enjoying it in community, read aloud as part of our worship. Although this is how much of the Bible was originally shared, our experience of hearing it read can often seem far from sweet. To bring the Scriptures to life we need to spend time with the text, tasting and enjoying it ourselves, and understanding what we are presenting and to whom. Then comes the opportunity for creativity to add a spark as we encounter God’s word together. Hartman demonstrates this with his characteristic flair.Readmore …
Chapter 004, Design of Vessel Supports (English Edition)
NOTE: This is a single chapter excerpted from the book Pressure Vessel Design Manual, made available for individual purchase. Additional chapters, as well as the entire book, may be purchased separately.
Pressure vessels are closed containers designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different from the ambient pressure. They have a variety of applications in industry, including in oil refineries, nuclear reactors, vehicle airbrake reservoirs, and more.
The pressure differential with such vessels is dangerous and due to the risk of accident and fatality around their use, the design, manufacture, operation and inspection of pressure vessels is regulated by engineering authorities, guided by legal codes and standards.
Pressure Vessel Design Manual is a solutions-focused guide to the many problems and technical challenges involved in the design of pressure vessels to match stringent standards and codes. It brings together otherwise scattered information and explanation into one easy-to-use resource to minimize research and take readers from problem to solution in the most direct manner possible.
- Covers almost all problems that a working pressure vessel designer can expect to face, with 50+ step-by-step design procedures including a wealth of equations, explanations and data
- Internationally recognized, widely referenced and trusted, with 20+ years of use in over 30 countries making it an accepted industry standard guide
- Now revised with up-to-date ASME, ASCE and API regulatory code information, and dual unit coverage for increased ease of international use

M.F.K. Fisher: An Annotated Bibliography (English Edition)
Described as a national treasure and the finest prose writer in America, and christened as a "Poet of the Appetites", M.F.K. Fisher has long been considered the finest food writer of the 20th century. But Fisher would have rejected the term "food writer" as an inaccurate and limiting description of her oeuvre for good reason.
Though best know for her gastronomic writings, M.F.K. Fisher was also a novelist, travel writer, memoirist, critic, and essayist of the highest order. In an astoundingly prolific career, Fisher wrote over two dozen books, hundreds of magazine articles, dozens of book reviews, and many volumes of journals. Her output, which influenced generations of writers, has been translated into ten languages and has appeared in nearly one hundred anthologies.
M.F.K. Fisher: An Annotated Bibliography is an essential tool for accessing and understanding Fisher's life and work. Comprehensive in scope, it is the definitive resource for Fisher fans, scholars, researchers, and booksellers. The bibliography identifies everything ever published by Fisher and provides concise summaries of each work, as well as citations to hundreds of publications about Fisher's life and work. The Fourth Revised Edition also contains much new information including descriptions to assist with physical identification of the many editions of Fisher's books, an appendix listing nearly one hundred examples of Fisher's inclusions in anthologies, and identification of World Wide Web accessible material by and about Fisher.
