You wouldn't expect that a young man named after the famous Book of Mormon prophet, Nephi, would be the type of person to get into a lot of trouble–and normally, he wouldn't. But when fourteen-year-old Nephi Thomas overhears a conversation between two suspicious men, his life begins to get complicated. Could these men be the same ones involved in a local robbery? Nephi discovers that by going off course just a little bit from his parents' instructions he ends up putting his entire family in danger. This first book in the Nephi Thomas Adventure series is an entertaining story for the whole family, guaranteed to lead you on a straight course to adventure.

This book offers an introduction to the fundamental principles and systematic methodologies employed in computational approaches to ship design. It takes a detailed approach to the description of the problem definition, related theories, mathematical formulation, algorithm selection, and other core design information. Over eight chapters and appendices the book covers the complete process of ship design, from a detailed description of design theories through to cutting-edge applications. Following an introduction to relevant terminology, the first chapters consider ship design equations and models, freeboard calculations, resistance prediction and power estimation. Subsequent chapters cover topics including propeller deign, engine selection, hull form design, structural design and outfitting.

The Inside Track describes the methods Alan used to generate over $50,000 profit from his betting during 1997. The author has studied many American texts and explains how he has mixed their ideas with his own 30 years experience of British racing and betting. There are no systems, no rules and no guarantees in this book, yet anybody who likes to bet on horse racing is sure to find material here that will challenge accepted beliefs and persuade them to think in new ways about their betting. In his first book, Alan explained that to make a living it was necessary to bet Against The Crowd. This book expands on that and takes the reader inside the mind of one of the most successful professional punters operating in the country. There are separate sections covering Flat racing and Jumping, and also detailed discussions of All-weather racing and the growing world of spread betting.

This was a time of civil war, anarchy, intrigue, and assassination.Between 193 and 284 the Roman Empire knew more than twenty-five emperors, and an equal number of usurpers. All of them had some measure of success, several of them often ruling different parts of the Empire at the same time. Rome's traditional political institutions slid into vacuity and armies became the Empire's most powerful institutions, proclaiming their own imperial champions and deposing those they held to be incompetent.Yet despite widespread contemporary dismay at such weak government this period was also one in which the boundaries of the Empire remained fairly stable; the rights and privileges of Roman citizenship were extended equally to all free citizens of the Empire; in several regions the economy remained robust in the face of rampant inflation; and literary culture, philosophy, and legal theory flourished. Historians have been discussing how and why this could have been for centuries. Olivier Hekster takes you to th
