Over last thirty years, new technology, fashion, and social set-ups have spawned new cliches galore. Everything on the Internet is available at the 'click of a mouse', TV presenters ask the audience to 'give it up' when they want them to applaud, call centres tell us 'we value your call' even though 'all our operators are busy'. And if you're 'gobsmacked' by all this you may be told to 'get a life', 'chill out' or 'whatever'. It's Not Rocket Science sifts through all aspects of modern life to find the most prevalent, ubiquitous and downright irritating cliches of our age. This high-octane, caffeine-fuelled, dictionary of cliches highlights the freshly-hackneyed phrases we're being subjected to 24/7. So how good is that? And what's not to like?

It's Not Rocket Science, You Know was written by Kenny Snyder as a response to something he noticed while teaching music in Hawaii. Although some students in his theory classes were music majors, they had somehow missed or overlooked the basics of music. Because of this, Kenny began writing some simple ideas down and those turned into this little book about music. Instead of chapters, It's Not Rocket Science, You Know is separated into conversations. Kenny uses a tone of writing that is humorous in order to pull the reader into these conversations. Along the way, he builds on concepts that are universal without making them boring. Each conversation has moments where Kenny encourages the reader to stop, take out their notebook and practice drawing the subject matter at hand. He stresses the importance of learning how to draw notes and staves and symbols. Kenny feels that knowledge is retained at a much higher rate when it is transferred to paper. In addition to humor and conversational writing, Kenny includes hand-drawn pictures and illustrations to keep the ideas moving forward. This personal touch also creates a casual feel to the material.Along the way, Kenny adds some unique concepts normally not found in a beginner music book, such as learning the Nashville Numbers system, how to use a metronome and designing a lead sheet. All in all, It's Not Rocket Science, You Know is a terrific foundational book for both beginner and advanced music students, or for curious onlookers who are thinking about dabbling into music.

The Top Ten Bestseller Black holes. DNA. The Large Hadron Collider. Ever had that sneaking feeling that you are missing out on some truly spectacular science? You do? Well, fear not, for help is at hand. Ben Miller was working on his Physics PhD at Cambridge when he accidentally became a comedian. But first love runs deep, and he has returned to his roots to share with you all his favourite bits of science. This is the stuff you really need to know, not only because it matters but because it will quite simply amaze and delight you. 'Let me show you another, perhaps less familiar side of Science; her beauty, her seductiveness and her passion. And let's do it quickly, while Maths isn't looking' - Ben Miller 'This book makes climate change actually seem interesting. Not just important - it's obviously important - but interesting. As a result I bought lots of other books about climate change, something I now regret' - David Mitchell Ben Miller is, like you, a mutant ape living through an Ice Age on a ball of molten iron, orbiting a supermassive black hole. He is also an actor, comedian and approximately one half of Armstrong & Miller. He's presented a BBC Horizon documentary on temperature and a Radio 4 series about the history of particle physics, and has written a science column for The Times. He is slowly coming to terms with the idea that he may never be an astronaut.

The dominance of computer labs in our schools is the result of a long struggle among teachers and technicians for control of precious computer resources. As technicians gain power and influence, this is expressed in the 'row on row of machines' installed in literally thousands of computer labs in schools around the world. While labs are in some ways, ideal for learning about technology or computer programming, they somehow seem ill equipped to assist teachers with a lesson on language arts, geography or for helping students conduct a scientific experiment. As a result, the huge investment in computers seems like so much wasted potential: labs are not influencing teaching in the ways we had hoped for, and in fact, their use may even be harmful to students. These observations are based on five years of experience as the director of a centre for educational technology at a leading Canadian university and, on the results of three international studies I conducted in Australia, Canada and Malaysia. The research indicates that school labs fail to meet even basic guidelines common to the workplace, and that they're often deficient in health related factors such as lighting, ventilation or workspace dimensions. The reality is that schools were not designed for so many computers, and therefore, are poorly outfitted to accommodate this sudden influx of technology. This research also shows that computers (in labs), can have an unexpected, de-socialising influence on students' lives. A reversal of the current 'techno- trend' would mean teachers would reclaim computers for 'their own' classrooms, and relegate the idea of the computer lab to the scrap heap of history. As educators, we need to discard the 'once size fits all' strategy which computer labs imply about teachers' instructional needs. This is reinforced by the apparent failure of computers to transform teachers' practice despite significant investments in computer technologies. Some critics describe this as a 'management problem' as computer labs reinforce 'top down' ways of thinking about knowledge. Unfortunately, once such models are adopted, undesirable uses of technology -- such as the computer lab -- become entrenched in a bureaucratic mindset, limiting the effectiveness of these expensive tools to support teaching and learning.

Stop chasing hot trends and start driving real growth It's Not Rocket Science blasts through the trends and false promises permeating the business world to help you and your company get back to basics and get things done. Why doggedly pursue the "next big thing" when the most effective drivers of growth are right under your nose? This book asserts that you've already heard, been taught, and know well the key fundamentals that spell business success, and presents a compelling, four strategy blueprint for returning your business culture and strategies to a rock solid foundation of execution excellence. Each chapter opens with The Challenge, which outlines a current condition that exists due to a departure from common sense behaviors, and tasks you with following the appropriate execution principles to get your business on the right track. After a thorough explanation of "what" and "why," each chapter gives you the actionable "how" so you can implement these valuable steps and master the art of execution in your organization.

If your organization is to be robust and strong enough to weather any storm, the strength must come from the very core; the ability for each member of your team to execute daily and effectively towards your organization's most compelling goals. Frankly, the last things most organizations need is another goal they'll miss because they can't execute well. This book reminds you of the four timeless execution methods and strategies that have proven themselves over centuries, and shows you how they are implemented in today's business environment. Get the leaders right Get the culture right Get the people right Get the process right Today's flash in the pan may be superficially intriguing, but is it really that much different from yesterday's "hot tip"?

Paul has taken the first eleven chapters of Romans to talk doctrine. For example, he begins with the righteousness of God. It is one of the basic doctrines of Scripture. He says that the Bible is a revelation of the righteousness of God. He also firmly declares that he is not ashamed of the Gospel because it reveals the power of God to save us.He continues by saying that the righteous (those of us who have have accepted the sacrifice of Jesus) will live by faith - faith in God and the sacrifice He has provided. He also presents the doctrine of the depravity of man in no uncertain terms. Man is a sinner and in great need of the sacrifice of Jesus. He concludes that the entire world stands convicted before this righteous God. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. This means that everyone is in need of the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross.In chapter ten Paul tells us how to appropriate that sacrifice. It is a matter of believing in one's heart and confessing publicly that Jesus is Lord. It is a pure and simple act of faith in the sacrifice Jesus made on that little hill outside Jerusalem.Beginning with chapter twelve Paul discusses some of the changes one experiences when he accepts the sacrifice of Jesus. The act of believing that Jesus is Lord includes the giving of one's body totally to Christ (Romans 12:1). Once a Believer gives himself to Christ a dramatic transformation begins. This change begins with the transforming of the new Believer's mind. Paul calls it a renewing of the mind. The thinking of the saved person is totally and radically transformed. This transformation enables the convert to determine what is the "...good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God" (Romans 12:2).It is interesting that the renewing of one's mind begins with how he thinks about himself. Then the change continues with the Believer's mind being changed in the way he thinks about others. He has a new love (agape) which affects his opinion and actions toward others. His thinking is even changed toward the state - the government and persons in positions of authority.Paul's conclusion is that the Christian is to discard the works of darkness and put on Jesus Christ. It is all a part of the wonderful change that is effected by a belief in the only begotten Son of God.Romans twelve Paul begins what preachers refer to as the "application." Now that he has presented the great doctrines of the Bible what is the Christian to do with them? Beginning with chapter twelve Paul applies the doctrines of the first eleven chapters to the life of the Believer.The one who believes in Jesus will, indeed, walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4).
