Summary

This illustrated guide presents step-by-step instructions and techniques for warship modelers ready for the challenge of building at larger scales.   Many warship modelers who work in smaller scales are daunted by the challenge of tackling something larger. But in Large Scale Warship Models, expert modeler Kerry Jang demonstrates that it’s not as difficult as it may seem. In fact, any experienced modeler will already possess the basic skills required. This volume covers the essential new techniques for working in scales that capture the grandeur of actual ships.   In the first part of the book, Jang discusses how to choose between a kit, a semi-kit or building from scratch. He also covers what conventional kit building skills are transferable to work on large-scale projects. Novel requirements like research, obtaining plans and sourcing material or fittings are also covered.   The second part describes building methods, including the latest techniques like casting fittings in resin. These methods apply to both static and radio-controlled models. Original color photos illustrate each chapter, and the book concludes with a gallery of superb models intended to inspire the would-be large-scale warship modeler to take the plunge.

    Marriage is great, but marriage is hard. A continual learning experience. An up-close, totally exposed, nowhere-to-hide sharing of life’s everythings—the good and the not-so-good—where the real you becomes really known. Even to yourself. And where grace and forgiveness, both given and received, are able through God to become more raw and redemptive than you ever thought possible.30 Days to Your Best Marriage is a prime way to keep your relationship growing and thriving. It provides the kind of spiritual connection point that helps you walk hand-in-hand together, traveling through Bible verses that focus on the covenant of marriage and the impact God intends it to create on each of you, individually and as a couple. After 30 days of focusing on your marriage through the lens of Scripture, you’ll begin to experience a new joy in doing life together.

    Join TikTok star Michela Allocca (@BreakYourBudget) for a crash course in everything personal finance. With real-life examples, this book unlocks the fun of money fundamentals. Michela Allocca had an epiphany when she was working at her first job: even those working in finance can have no idea how to budget, invest, and spend on a personal level! By the time she reached her mid-20s, she had a new mission: helping any young person who wanted advice with the “scary,” aka often misunderstood, world of personal finance. In Own Your Money, Michela shares all the tools she used to manage, save, invest, and set a routine that enabled her to save hundreds of thousands of dollars in less than a decade of professional—and freelance—work. You’ll find chapters that address: Budgeting: Don’t make it a dreaded B-word! Learn about various strategies including 50/30/20, zero-based, and 3-bucket budgets. How to save: It’s all about SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound). How to spend money: That’s right, a plan for spending is important too! With a quick analysis of values and priorities, you can spend without feeling guilt—yes, even on those fancy coffees. Investing: Learn the difference between 401ks and IRAs, investment types from index funds to target date funds, and relate it all back to core concepts in investing (like diversification). Jobs and careers: If your dream job doesn’t exist, join the club! Learn how to find satisfaction through the tasks you want to do, networking, and career pivots. Increase your earning potential: Set yourself up for a raise/promotion, negotiate a job offer, and figure out if a side hustle is right for you.  This is a book that’s meant to partner with you on your own journey and financial goals!

    Lara was seven when her birth mother died from a drug overdose. With no extended family to look after her, she was put into foster care. The care system failed Lara and now she is failing her son. 
    Lara and her one-year-old son, Arthur, are brought to experienced foster carer, Cathy Glass, by their social worker. Lara has fled an abusive relationship and Arthur has suspected non-accidental injuries. Cathy must monitor Lara whenever she is with her son, day and night. She cannot let them out of her sight for a minute. 
    Lara loves her son, but she puts her own needs first. Cathy must teach Lara how to care for Arthur, but will it be enough to allow her to keep him? 
    In her Sunday Times bestselling book Unwanted, Cathy Glass offers a compelling narrative that explores the complexities of relationships, the care system, and the lasting effects of abuse. The personal memoirs of Lara and her son Arthur serve as a stark reminder of the importance of fostering and adoption. 
    For fans of Maggie Hartley (Battered, Broken, Healed), Linda Watson-Brown (Don't Say A Word), Kat Ward (KERI 2), Veronica Clark (Snatched), and Torey L. Hayden (The Invisible Girl).

    It was Thanksgiving Day in Plum Village on November 25, 2004. The sangha gathered in Lower Hamlet, Plum Village during the Fall Retreat and Thay gave a 45-minute dharma talk on the topic of love and happiness. In the Buddhist teaching of love, there are four elements. The first is maitri – friendship, brotherhood, loving-kindness. And the second is karuna – capacity to understand the suffering and help remove and transform it – compassion. Mudita is the third element – joy – your joy is her joy, her joy is our joy. The last element is upeksha – nondiscrimination. This is a higher form of love. The four qualities have no limits – infinite love – these elements arelso called the Four Unlimited Minds. 
    The bodhisattva of love is in you.
