The Population of the United Kingdom has now reached 67 million. 40% (approximately 27 million) are not classed as ’physically active’. This is a shocking statistic and it is getting worse. The decline in physical activity starts at around 24 years and it is all downhill from there! The ’unique’ fifteen minute plan means that anyone from 18 - 80 can quickly reach their optimum fitness level in just 15 minutes a day. They can then maintain their level by exercising just 3 times a week. The plan is based on The Royal Canadian Air Force BX Plan and has been the core source of fitness in the Canadian Airforce for over 50years. No special equipment is needed: all of the exercises are ’free form’ and can be done at home, in the office or out and about if you travel in your work. There is no need to join a gym so there are no fees to pay. No group memberships although the plans are really good for families and groups of friends. The system is graded so to start with the exercises are quite simple and gentle. You move on to the second set of exercises at your own pace. All of the exercises are illustrated and there are charts to help you plot your progress. Easy steps to get you fit and keep you fit in less time than it probably takes to drive to the gym. Fully illustrated, and with integral progress charts, fitness can be fun. With a minimum amount of space and no costs the Need2Know Plan is ideal for anyone from 18 - 80.

The author of Why We Buy reports on the growing importance of women in everybody's marketplace--what makes a package, product, space, or service "female friendly." He offers a tour of the world's marketplace--with shrewd observations and practical applications to help everybody adapt to the new realities. Underhill examines how a woman's role as homemaker has evolved into homeowner; how the home gym and home office are linked to the women's health movement and home-based businesses; why the refrigerator has trumped the stove as the crucial appliance; why some malls are succeeding while others fail. "The point is," writes Underhill, "while men were busy doing other things, women were becoming a major social, cultural, and economic force." And, as he warns, no business can afford to ignore their power and presence--From publisher description.

Now with a new Preface and Afterword by the author “Outstanding . . . [Isobel Coleman] takes us into remote villages and urban bureaucracies to find the brave men and women working to create change in the Middle East.”—Los Angeles Times In this timely and important book, Isobel Coleman shows how Muslim women and men across the Middle East are working within Islam to fight for women’s rights in a growing movement of Islamic feminism. Journeying through Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, Coleman introduces the reader to influential Islamic feminist thinkers and successful grassroots activists working to create economic, political, and educational opportunities for women. Their advocacy for women’s rights based on more progressive interpretations of Islam are critical to bridging the conflict between those championing reform and those seeking to oppress women in the name of religious tradition. Socially, culturally, economically, and politically, the future of the region depends on finding ways to accommodate human rights, and in particular women’s rights, with Islamic law. These reformers—and thousands of others—are the people leading the way forward. Featuring new material that addresses how the Arab uprisings and other recent events have affected the social and political landscape of the region, Paradise Beneath Her Feet offers a message of hope: Change is coming to the Middle East—and more often than not, it is being led by women. Praise for Paradise Beneath Her Feet “Clearly written, deeply moving, and wonderfully enlightening.”—Reza Aslan, author of No god but God “[An] engrossing portrait of real Muslim women that reveals how Islamic feminists . . . are working with and within the culture, rather than against it . . . to forge ‘a legitimate Islamic alternative to the current repressive system.’ Coleman doesn’t diminish the enormity of the struggle, but she argues convincingly that it might yet rewrite Islam’s future.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A nuanced view of Islam’s role in public life that is cautiously hopeful.”—The Economist “Eye-opening . . . Deeply religious, profoundly determined and modern in every way, these are twenty-first-century women bent on change. Hear them roar and see a future being born before our eyes.”—Booklist
