Submarine commander Aiexi Novskoyy has been sprung from prison by a multibillion-dollar organization with a very special mission in mind. The company has designed a new submarine—the Vepr—which they will use to wreak havoc on international trade. To test its new weapon, Alexi must sink a cruise ship carrying the entire brass of the U.S Navy—effectively decapitating the American fleet. The legendary USS Devilfish is called in to stop the catastrophe, only to be ambushed by the ultra-advanced Vepr. With the Devilfish down, the Navy sends Captain “Kelly” McKee and the newest sub in the U.S. arsenal to hunt down and destroy the super sub. What they don’t realize is that Alexi has his own plans, which have him heading straight for the shores of America.

This essential practical guide aims to take the mystery out of pruning - a gardening task which many gardeners mistakenly believe to be difficult and complicated. It simplifies the job, showing that the correct pruning and training of ornamental and fruiting plants is both easy and also has many rewards, including improved flower and fruit production, healthier plants, improved plant shape, and a tidier garden. Opening with a helpful introduction, which covers basic principles and techniques, useful tools and equipment, and safety considerations, the chapters that follow are arranged by plant type, covering trees, shrubs, climbers and wall shrubs, and roses. Each chapter includes practical advice, illustrated with step-by-step photographic sequences and artworks, on the initial training of the plant type in question; how to prune the plant once it is established; and how to undertake renovation pruning. There is also information on specialized pruning and training techniques, such as pruning for ornamental stems, pleaching, pollarding and coppicing. An invaluable A-Z Directory of Ornamental Plants looks at the pruning requirements of a wide range of species on a plant-by-plant basis, explaining when and how to prune. A Fruit section contains chapters on pruning and training tree fruits, including hardy apples and pears, and tender tree fruits, such as olive trees and citrus fruits.

The Vow on the Heron
Author: Jean Plaidy
Publisher: Random House
The ninth title in Jean Plaidy's hugely popular Plantagenet series memorably depicts the rise and fall of Edward ll. Edward the Second has been barbarously murdered in Berkeley Castle on the orders of his wife, Queen Isabella, and her lover Roger de Mortimer, and fifteen-year-old Edward the Third is now king. Young Edward has already met and fallen in love with Philippa of Hainault and, to prevent him enquiring into the details of his father's death, Isabella allows the marriage to take place. A son is born who goes on to become the famous Black Prince. While some suggest that Edward has a claim on the French throne, he is reluctant to pursue it, aware of the magnitude of such an undertaking. It is only when Robert of Artois arrives, bent on starting a war with France, that the king is provoked into action. When Robert presents Edward with a dead heron and compares him tauntingly to the timid bird, Edward vows to attack France, heralding the beginning of the Hundred Years' War. Here we see Edward in his greatness, victorious in war and leading his country to prosperity, and at his very weakest, fallen from glory and crippled by his scheming mistress.

An understanding of acu-points is vital not only for acupuncturists but also for bodyworkers. This user-friendly manual contains current, comprehensive information for both groups, with special emphasis on how shiatsu and tuina therapists can best utilize “point knowledge” in their practice. Renowned experts Chris Jarmey and Ilaira Bouratinos use succinct text, a well-organized framework, and detailed color anatomical illustrations to clarify the complexities of acu-points. In keeping with normal practice, the authors give the precise anatomical location of a point and illustrate it with a dot, along with alternative locations where relevant. However, the book goes further by delineating the larger area where the point can be activated by pressure, gua sha, and other means. In addition, it explains the optimum physical position for treatment via acupuncture, acupressure, and other strategies, as treatment positions can vary according to the method of point stimulation. The book also documents the distribution of sensation resulting from point stimulation, and differentiates between pressure and needle application where appropriate. A Practical Guide to Acu-Points presents a wealth of carefully researched information equally valuable for professionals, students, and conscientious practitioners.
