How to Behave Badly in Renaissance Britain, Goodman Ruth
Michael O’Mara 2020, ISBN: 9781789292664
1371руб Купить
From royalty to peasantry, every age has its bad eggs, those who break all the rules and rub everyone up the wrong way. But their niggling, anti-social and irritating ways not only tell us about what upset people, but also what mattered to them, how their society functioned and what kind of world they lived in. In this brilliantly nitty-gritty exploration of real life in the Tudor and Stuart age, you will discover: — how to choose the perfect insult, whether it be draggletail, varlet, flap, saucy fellow strumpet, ninny-hammer or stinkard — why quoting Shakespeare was very poor form — why flashing the inside of your hat could repulse someone — the best way to mock accents, preachers, soldiers and pretty much everything else besides Ruth Goodman draws upon advice books and manuals, court cases and sermons, drama and imagery to outline bad behaviour from the gauche to the galling, the subtle to the outrageous. It is a celebration of drunkards, scolds, harridans and cross dressers in a time when calling a man a fool could get someone killed, and cursing wasn’t just rude, it worked!
 
The Intelligence Trap. Revolutionise your Thinking and Make Wiser Decisions
Hodder & Stoughton 2020, ISBN: 9781473669857
1309руб Купить
How was a brilliant physics professor tricked into carrying 2kg of cocaine across the Argentinian border? Why do doctors misdiagnose 10 to 15% of their patients? Why do Nobel Prize winners spread fake news? We assume that smarter people are less prone to error. But greater education and expertise can often amplify our mistakes while rendering us blind to our biases. This is the ’intelligence trap’. Drawing on the latest behavioural science and historical examples from Socrates to Benjamin Franklin, David Robson demonstrates how to apply our intelligence more wisely; identify bias and enhance our ’rationality quotient’; read and regulate our emotions; fine-tune our intuition; navigate ambiguity and uncertainty; and think more flexibly about seemingly intractable problems. The twenty-first century presents us with complex problems that demand a wiser way of thinking. Whether you are a NASA scientist or a school student, The Intelligence Trap offers a new cognitive toolkit to realise your full potential.
 
Acid for the Children
Headline 2020, ISBN: 9781472230836
1433руб Купить
Flea, the iconic bassist and co-founder, alongside Anthony Kiedis, of the immortal Red Hot Chili Peppers finally tells his fascinating origin story, complete with all the dizzying highs and the gutter lows you’d expect from an LA street rat turned world-famous rock star. Michael Peter Balzary was born in Melbourne, Australia, on October 16, 1962. His more famous stage name, Flea, and his wild ride as the renowned bass player for the Red Hot Chili Peppers was in a far and distant future. Little Michael from Oz moved with his very conservative, very normal family to Westchester, New York, where life as he knew it was soon turned upside down. His parents split up and he and his sister moved into the home of his mother’s free-wheeling, jazz musician boyfriend — trading in rules, stability, and barbecues for bohemian values, wildness, and Sunday afternoon jazz parties where booze, weed, and music flowed in equal measure. There began Michael’s life-long journey to channel all the frustration, loneliness, love, and joy he felt into incredible rhythm. When Michael’s family moved to Los Angeles in 1972, his home situation was rockier than ever. He sought out a sense of belonging elsewhere, spending most of his days partying, playing basketball, and committing petty crimes. At Fairfax High School, he met another social outcast, Anthony Kiedis, who quickly became his soul brother, the yin to his yang, his partner in mischief. Michael joined some bands, fell in love with performing, and honed his skills. But it wasn’t until the night when Anthony, excited after catching a Grandmaster Flash concert, suggested they start their own band that he is handed the magic key to the cosmic kingdom. Acid for the Children is as raw, entertaining and wildly unpredictable as its author. It’s both a tenderly evocative coming of age story and a raucous love letter to the power of music and creativity

Why stories make us human and how to tell them better. There have been many attempts to understand what makes a good story — but few have used a scientific approach. In this incisive, thought-provoking book, award-winning writer Will Storr demonstrates how master storytellers manipulate and compel us. Applying dazzling psychological research and cutting-edge neuroscience to the foundations of our myths and archetypes, he shows how we can use these tools to tell better stories — and make sense of our chaotic modern world.
 
The Road to Wigan Pier, Orwell George
Collins Classics, Harper Collins UK 2020, ISBN: 9780008443825
308руб Купить
If there is one man to whom I do feel myself inferior, it is a coalminer. In the mid-1930s, George Orwell was given an assignment from his publisher — to write a book about unemployment and social conditions in the economically depressed north of England. Revolutionary for its time, The Road to Wigan Pier documents Orwell’s stint in towns likes Barnsley, Sheffield and Wigan in 1936, where he met and observed working-class people living in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire. Orwell graphically and emphatically describes the hardships of ordinary people living in cramped slum housing, working in dangerous mines and growing hungry through malnutrition and social injustice. It is an honest, gripping and humane study that also looks at socialism as a solution to the problems facing working-class northerners — something many readers at the time were uncomfortable discussing. The Road to Wigan Pier cemented ideas that would be found in Orwell’s later works, and remains a powerful portrait of poverty, injustice and class divisions in Britain to this day.

Homage to Catalonia, Orwell George
Collins Classics, Harper Collins UK 2020, ISBN: 9780008442743
308руб Купить
In 1936, George Orwell volunteered as a soldier in the Spanish Civil War. In Homage to Catalonia, first published just before the outbreak of World War II, Orwell documents the chaos and bloodshed of that moment in history and the voices of those who fought against rising fascism. His experience of the civil war would spark a significant change in his own political views, which readers today will recognise in much of his later literary work; a rage against the threat of totalitarianism and control.
 
Down and Out in Paris and London, Orwell George
Collins Classics, Harper Collins UK 2020, ISBN: 9780008442668
308руб Купить
Three francs will feed you till tomorrow, and you cannot think further than that... As a young man struggling to find his voice as a writer, George Orwell left the comfort of home to live in the impoverished working districts of Paris and London. He would document both the chaos and boredom of destitution, the eccentric cast of characters he encountered, and the near-constant pains of hunger and discomfort. Exposing the grim reality of a life marred by poverty, Down and Out in Paris and London, part memoir, part social commentary, would become George Orwell’s first published work.

ГЭОТАР-Медиа 2021, ISBN: 978-5-9704-6202-7
1974руб Купить
This workbook has been specifi cally designed for foreign students of Russian medical schools who study pharmacology. It is supposed to be used as an aid for better preparation for pharmacology practical classes. The content of the workbook corresponds to the pharmacology course program approved for the third year students by the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. Part 1 of the Workbook consists of 16 units, of which 3 units are grouped under the heading of General pharmacology, and the remaining 12 units are included in the Particular pharmacology division. The units begin with topics to be discussed to familiarize students with particular questions they will be asked at the lesson. Students will fi nd it helpful to review background information (brief description of basic pharmacological processes and characteristics of particular drug groups) and key terms provided in each unit. The units dealing with Particular pharmacology include classifi cations of drugs. As the name workbook implies it contains a variety of tasks for self-training, the tasks being presented in the form of multiple choice questions, tables, pictures, and diagrams as well as clinical cases. In general, the book aims at better comprehension of major pharmacological topics including understanding of mechanisms of drug action, which determine both their main therapeutic and side eff ects. Students will also fi nd answer keys to check their progress. The 2-nd edition is designed to provide advanced and modern information in regard to the subject matters covered, with the understanding that knowledge and medical practice constantly evolve. The main textbooks: D.A.Kharkevitch “Pharmacology”, 2-nd edition, Moscow; B.G.Katzung “Basic and Clinical Pharmacology”, 14-th edition, NY. The authors hope this kind of training may be of interest not only for foreigners but also for other medicine and pharmacy students.
 
Teaching Lexically, Dellar Hugh, Walkley Andrew
DTDS, Delta Publishing 2017, ISBN: 9783125013612
1990руб Купить
Teaching Lexically shows what a lexical view of language looks like, and explores how it differs from a more traditional ’grammar + words’ view. It then considers what implications such a view might have for classroom practice. At the heart of Teaching Lexically are three main ideas: Grammar and vocabulary are both taught better in combination. Context is absolutely central. Classrooms need to be input-rich; and input needs to be useful. Teaching Lexically contains three distinctive parts which focus in turn on theory, practice and development. Part A provides a detailed exploration of the core ideas behind lexical teaching. The authors begin with the principles that explain how and why people learn, before presenting two competing views of language — ’grammar + words’ (and skills) and a lexical view. They close with an in-depth exploration of how language looks when seen from a lexical perspective. Part B contains a bank of activities that puts into practice the particular principles related to such areas of teaching as vocabulary, grammar, reading, listening, and so on. These activities are designed to be applied to any classroom material, and to help teachers build up their own repertoire of lexically-rooted techniques. Part C addresses some of the issues and implications involved in where and how lexical teaching may be applied. It also considers how teacher training and development can become more lexically-oriented, finally suggesting ways to develop as a lexical materials writer.
