Richard Wilson is like the naughty kid poking the ant's nest with a stick.'-Times Online Kids these days are all fat, lazy and thick and their parents dont know how to bring them up properly any more. Theyre glued to their phones, play too many violent computer games, communicate only in text-speak and as a result have no imagination or any proper old-fashioned fun like we did when we were children. But is that really true? Were conkers, hopscotch and the hoop and stick really as stimulating as we remember? And were our childhoods as safe and carefree as the nostalgia-addicts would have us believe? Richard Wilson takes a cynical peek through times rose-tinted spectacles at 101 good old fashioned childhood activities. From skimming stones to starting fires, he remind us of the harsh and often high-risk, homemade games of our wild youth, and leaves us wondering how we ever survived.

You Can Do It! es el resultado de la observación, durante numerosos años, de los fallos más frecuentes fundamentalmente en el ámbito de la pronunciación- que cometen los españoles cuando hablan en inglés. Su autora, Helena Kurçab, bajo el sello de The English Coach (Jacci), ha dedicado años a la identificación de estos errores y a la plasmación de trucos para que las personas hispanohablantes adquieran la soltura que necesitan para hablar y pronunciar bien en inglés. El libro incluye un CD con audio grabado por la propia autora. En You Can Do It!, la profesora y coach- ofrece una serie de sencillas reglas que ilustra con frases llamativas y fáciles de recordar. La palabra umbrella (paraguas) es una de las que más se vale la autora para enseñar su método. Casi todas las personas la dicen bien. Sin embargo, cuando utilizan la letra u en otros contextos la pronuncian mal. ¿Por qué? Según la autora, porque nunca han dedicado tiempo a pensar y extrapolar los sonidos de las vocales. Todo estudiante de inglés y así lo plasma y explica la autora en el primer capítulo de su libro (y primer paso de su método)- debe estar animado para conseguir su objetivo y asegurarse de: -Conocerse a sí mismo y ser capaz de verbalizar el auténtico objetivo y motivo por el que quiere aprender inglés. -Creerse y autoconvencerse de que lo puede conseguir. -Conocer lo que realmente va a necesitar para alcanzar el objetivo marcado. Teniendo en cuenta criterios siempre claros y específicos. El segundo capítulo del libro se centra en los trucos para aprender a pronunciar bien. El tercer paso del método se centra en las claves para identificar nuestros errores, asimilarlos y poder subsanarlos.

A fascinating tale of a young school boy's exploits in his quest to spot every steam locomotive in the UK during the 1950s & 1960s, until steam finished on British Railways on 4th August 1968. at the time I lived in North Hertfordshire, so my trainspotting days began mainly at Hitchin on the ECML. I later moved to Guildford and carried on from there. I was fortunate in that I recorded virtually all my activities and furthermore have retained those records to this day. In those days before computers and mobile phones Trainspotting was one of the most popular hobbies in the country. My travels covered virtually the whole of the UK over a 10 year period. During that time along with my friends we had lots of interesting and sometimes amusing incidents; such as the Castleford 'Snow' occurrence; contretemps with a herd of Bullocks; run-ins with the law and shed foremen; sleeping rough on many occasions; a scary walk over Crumlin viaduct; our coach catching fire on the M1; plus many more. we visited locomotive sheds over 600 times during which I recorded in excess of 21,000 engines! We travelled by any means available; coach; bus; mini-bus; bicycle; car; motorbike; train; ferry; and a lot of hitchhiking! The latter including one such ride on a 9F which took me right into the shed I was about to bunk! We would take every opportunity to be by our beloved steam engines, daily on the way to & from school, then again in the evenings and every 2-3 weeks off an a tour somewhere in the UK some of these lasted 4 -5 days, often with rather dubious overnight accommodation! these tours were to all parts of the UK, from South Wales to Aberdeen, the Northwest, Northeast, Midlands, North Wales, south to Brighton, Southampton, Isle of Wight, West country and dozens of other locations The book has full colour card covers, is A4 portrait style of 185 pages and over 100 B & W photos. At the end of the text are two appendices, the first lists every shed visited and the relevant dates, the second lists in chronological order every locomotive seen, its shed and date. Barrie

Between 1971 and 1979, All in the Family was more than just a wildly popular television sitcom that routinely drew 50 million viewers weekly. It was also a touchstone of American life, so much so that the living room chairs of the two main characters have spent the last 40 years on display at the Smithsonian. How did a show this controversial and boundary-breaking manage to become so widely beloved? Those Were the Days is the first full-length study of this remarkable television program. Created by Norman Lear and produced by Bud Yorkin, All in the Family dared to address such taboo topics as rape, abortion, menopause, homosexuality, and racial prejudice in a way that no other sitcom had before. Through a close analysis of the sitcom’s four main characters—boorish bigot Archie Bunker, his devoted wife Edith, their feminist daughter Gloria, and her outspoken liberal husband Mike—Jim Cullen demonstrates how All in the Family was able to bridge the generation gap and appeal to a broad spectrum of American viewers in an age when a network broadcast model of television created a shared national culture. Locating All in the Family within the larger history of American television, this book shows how it transformed the medium, not only spawning spinoffs like Maude and The Jeffersons, but also helping to inspire programs like Roseanne, Married... with Children, and The Simpsons. And it raises the question: could a show this edgy ever air on broadcast television today?

This book presents ground-breaking theoretical, and empirical knowledge to produce a fine-grained and encompassing understanding of the costs and benefits that different groups of Asian migrants, moving between different countries in Asia and in the West, experience. The contributors—all specialist scholars in anthropology, geography, history, political science, social psychology, and sociology—present new approaches to intersectionality analysis, focusing on the migrants’ performance of their identities as the core indicator to unravel the mutual constituitivity of cultural, social, political, and economic characteristics rooted in different places, which characterizes transnational lifestyles. The book answers one key question: What happens to people, communities, and societies under globalization, which is, among others, characterized by increasing cultural disidentification?
