This book focuses on the ways in which military installations and small cities can implement and integrate triple net planning and energy, water, and waste sustainability strategies into broad installation operational management, arrive at the best decision, create policy and communicate effectively to stakeholders. It explores current and emerging technologies, methods, and frameworks for energy conservation, efficiency, and renewable energy within the context of triple net zero implementation practice. Recognizing that the challenge extends beyond finding technological solutions to achieve triple net zero outcomes, the contributions also address the need for a systemic view in the planning phase, as well as adequate communication and policy measures and incentives.
Mental Arithmetic provides rich and varied practice to develop pupils' essential maths skills and prepare them for all aspects of the Key Stage 2 national tests. It may also be used as preparation for the 11+, and with older students for consolidation and recovery.
Structured according to ability rather than age, the series allows children to work at their own pace, building confidence and fluency. Two Entry Tests are available in the Mental Arithmetic Teacher's Guide to help teachers, parents and tutors to select the appropriate book for each child.
Mental Arithmetic 6 extends beyond the Key Stage 2 curriculum,consolidating key subject areas alongside more advanced concepts such as profit and loss, using spreadsheets and conducting mathematical investigations. The book includes:
36 one-page tests, each presented in a unique three-part format comprising: questions on number, calculation and algebra, questions on money, measurement, geometry and approximations, longer problem-solving questions.
Achievement Charts to encourage pupils to monitor their own learning.
Revision Tests to identify gaps in understanding.
A separate accompanying answer book, Mental Arithmetic 6 Answers (ISBN 9780721708102), contains correct answers to all the questions, making marking quick and easy.
We have seen some excellent progress across Key Stage 2 using the Mental Arithmetic books. Staff commented that pupils have pupils have doubled their scores in mental maths tests and that their confidence in maths is improving. --Catherine Jubbs, HeadteacherI have been using these books in school for over a decade for maths homework. They make a real difference as they provide frequent practice and improve children's mental maths skills. --J Ciuputa, Headteacher
Norway is by history and culture very much a Scandinavian nation with its own unique profile. This book analyzes the factors that have shaped the sociocultural fabric of Norwegian politics. One of the most important themes Heidar analyzes is the power of the periphery, both in social as well as geographic terms. In the geographic sense, Norway is a small nation, and although it has been able to remain economically and politically stable, it is situated on the European flank. It is therefore dependent upon and vulnerable to external economic and political developments. In critical periods of its history, Norway's size has made it an object rather than an initiator of change. In the social sense, Norway has existed as a periphery nation”. It is this multi-dimensional center-periphery situation that has been crucial in shaping institutional structures and practices. Another theme that Heidar explores is Norway's enduring egalitarian culture. This book focuses on the primacy of politics in Norway and the role played by the nineteenth-century peasant movement and the twentieth-century labor movement in shaping modern Norway. Today, political and cultural traditions are challenged by the force of globalization. Norway is defined as a stable, parliamentary, multiparty system with a social democratic tradition. It was named a Choice Outstanding Academic Book of 2001.
The six children of King George V and Queen Mary all lived to maturity except the youngest, Prince John. The eldest, who was Prince of Wales and heir to the throne, reigned as King Edward Vii for less than a year. His infamous romance with Mrs Simpson plunged the country into the abdication crisis and led both of them into a long period of exile. King George Vi, who reluctantly and unexpectedly ascended to the throne, was a shy man, handicapped by a speech impediment and a sense of his own inadequacy. However, together with his Consort, Queen Elizabeth, and the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, he gave the nation spirited guidance throughout World War Ii. Both surviving younger brothers served in the armed forces during war-time. Henry, Duke of Gloucester, was Governor General of Australia from 1944-6 and crowned his military career with promotion to the rank of Field-Marshal. George, Duke of Kent, an officer in the Raf, was tragically killed on active service in 1942. The only sister, Mary, Princess Royal, worked both as a nurse, and a royal ambassador abroad. This book tells the story of the family.
John Van der Kiste is a well-known and respected Royal writer, whose publications include Xenia, Princess Victoria Melita, Dearest Vicki, Darling Fritz and the Georgian Princesses.
In the previous book "Fossil Fuels in the Arab World: Facts and Fiction", an assessment of mankind's dependence on fossil fuels was performed - particularly the position of Arab countries in this international industry. Several questions were posed then, identifying whether or not fossil fuel producing countries of the Arab world were an indispensable energy supplier and if the answer or beliefs around that question were behind Western policies towards the Arab world. In this book the questions posed 5 years ago from three perspectives: market fundamentals, understanding the fossil fuel market fundamentals and the place of the Arab world within that; political influences, corruption & cultural norms in business dealings, the developing democracy and militarisation in the Arab world and their interplay with oil and gas are addressed and finally, public relations, perceptions or concerns, where climate change and alternative energy questions are explored in detail.

What does 'quality of teaching, learning and assessment' mean for early years provision? This book takes a detailed look at this key judgement of early years inspections, and aims to enable practitioners to develop a solid understanding of best practice in the EYFS. It explores practitioners' interactions with children and how these move their learning forward, alongside guidance on meeting Ofsted's expectations. In addition to quality teaching, it focuses on how to extend children's learning, the use of language for teaching and learning and the importance of the learning environment.
Country houses were the showpieces of the nation’s elite and Kent can still boast some of the finest examples, with Leeds Castle, Chevening, Cobham Hall, Knole, Penshurst Place, Mereworth and Broome Park to name but a few. Sadly, the county has also witnessed the demolition of several of its grander houses due to changes in social habits and the decline and amalgamation of great estates, not to mention fire, dry rot and death duties. Estates of modern houses now cover the site of the many lost houses, while the remains of foundations, surviving entrance lodges and other outbuildings, and a few garden features can be found if looked for. It is evocative to think that what was once such an imposing building, the centre and social hub of the area, is now just a few scanty remains in a field.
This is the first book to feature the lost country houses of the ‘Garden of England’ and Martin Easdown provides us with 120 examples of the grandest mansions that have disappeared, listed in gazetteer form with illustrations. He also provides us with a few examples, such as Oxney Court, where the house has come back to life after years of dereliction.
Martin Easdown is a long-time member of the National Piers Society and one of the acknowledged experts on British piers. He has written extensively on the history of piers in books, magazines and newspapers. He lives in Kent.

Kanga Stories, is a collection of historic and contemporary information on textile trade, cultural exchange, and history of East Africa. The stories interrogate the significance of this cloth and the photographs provide a documentation of the design, iconography and text over more than 100 years of its production.
There have been countless attempts to solve the brutal murders committed by Jack the Ripper more than a hundred years ago. It seems that almost everyone has their own theory and their own suspect, ranging from the reasonably likely to the entirely preposterous. What this most famous of British criminal cases has always required is a professional eye to analyse with all the benefits of modern investigate techniques. Now that has been provided in the shape of the man most qualified to solve the case: former British murder squad detective Trevor Marriott. His long and arduous investigation dispels the rumours, fantasies and urban legends which have for so long stalked through the shadowy world of this vile killer. The results are startling: for many years it has been accepted that Jack the Ripper killed only five, but now, it can be revealed that up to nine were victims. And, most astonishing of all, a new prime suspect never previously considered has emerged, with evidence linking him not only to the Whitechapel cases, but to murders all over the world. "Jack the Ripper: the 21st Century Investigations" reveals the Ripper's true identity at last, and the fate that befell him.
Trevor Marriott joined the Bedfordshire Police in 1970. During his time as a detective he was assigned to murder cases and was also in Special Branch. Throughout this highly successful career, he developed a fascination with the unsolved Whitechapel murders, looking at the century-old case through the experienced eyes of a modern-day criminal investigator. The knowledge and insight into the criminal mind gained by interviewing murderers, rapists and robbers proved invaluable in his work to pinpoint the real perpetrator of Britain's most notorious serial killings.
