Summary

As children, many people dreamed of having a tree house, a place where they could get away to play and relax. Today, more and more people are making this dream a reality for their children, especially in the United States, England, Germany, France, and Brazil but it does not have to be just for children. (In fact, Corbin Dunn, 31, took up a permanent residence in a tree house in Santa Cruz, California for five years.) The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House will show you how to create one of these sky-high getaways, whether it is a child s play area or an adult hideaway. 
 
The oldest documented tree house is located in England on the grounds of Pitchford Hall and dates back to the 17th century. This proves that a tree house can be a lasting investment, especially if you choose the right tree and the right materials. This book will show you how to select a tree, prepare the tree, purchase the best materials, use the right tools, and buy lumber. You will learn about the tree house basics and the anatomy of a stable tree house, including four corners, diagonal support, sturdy flooring, a reliable ladder and railing, and a leak-proof roof.
 
In this book you will also learn about waterproofing, safety precautions, and building regulations and restrictions. You will be provided with design, building, and decorating tips, as well as non-technical drawings to aid you in the building process. You will learn about supports, windows, skylights, and tree house designs, such as shingled, two trees and two posts, and perch. Also included is an additional section on all the accessories you can add on to your house, like a ladder hoist, a fireman’s pole, swings, a zip line, a pulley and basket, a crow’s nest, a rope bridge, slides, and a trap door.
 
Whether you are building a tree house for your child or for yourself, The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House will provide you with dozens of helpful tips, tricks, and suggestions from people who have already undertaken this endeavor. With the help of this book, your treetop hideaway will quickly become a reality.

    Stephen Hawking was a world-famous physicist with a cameo in The Simpsons on his CV, but outside of his academic field his work was little understood. To the public he was a tragic figure - a brilliant scientist and author of the 9 million-copy-selling A Brief History of Time, and yet spent the majority of his life confined to a wheelchair and almost completely paralysed.
    
    Hawking's major contribution to science was to integrate the two great theories of 20th-century physics: Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.
    
    
    J.P. McEvoy and Oscar Zarate's brilliant graphic guide explores Hawking's life, the evolution of his work from his days as a student, and his breathtaking discoveries about where these fundamental laws break down or overlap, such as on the edge of a Black Hole or at the origin of the Universe itself.

    Coherence is the flow of information from the intention to the purpose and from the purpose to the significance. In other words, every WHAT (Intention) has a WHAT FOR (purpose) and a WHY (significance), that leads to Congruency. Coherence is enforced with truthfulness, honesty, transparency, integrity and it is weakened and blocked by betrayal, lies, mis representation and toxic relationships at a physical, emotional, personal and spiritual levels.
    The intention, purpose and significance are of electromagnetic nature, the resulting coherence and congruency allows for the collapse of the electromagnetic wave function giving way to the formation of vortices via the generation of gravitational waves followed by scalar waves. This is possible because of the angular momentum generated by spinning energy.

    From one of the world’s leading nutrition experts, a simplified explanation of probiotics and what they can do for and to the human body.   Despite the fact that people use the term probiotics a lot in the media as well as in everyday life, there appears to be some confusion as to whether probiotics are something that occur naturally in a healthy human gut or “biome,” something that is added to your yogurt, or whether it’s simply a pot of pills that you need to take when you’re ill. Gut Health and Probiotics will take readers on a quest to understand what both probiotics and prebiotics can do for their long term gut health and how this might affect a broad range of body systems from skin health to mental health. Along the way readers will discover how useful probiotics are in both preventing and curing specific ailments, as nutrition educator Jenny Tschiesche explains just how simple it is to feel great from the inside-out.
