This book starts by covering the basics of spread betting and explains why it has become such a popular method for trading a whole host of markets. Next the forex markets are explained - cutting through the jargon to help you understand how they work, what makes currency prices move second by second, 24 hours a day, and how you can trade forex using spread betting.
Finally, some trading strategies are examined - approaches that you can put into practise straightaway using spread betting, and at a level of risk that suits your own particular circumstances.
If you are looking to trade forex then this book provides an expert introduction - helping you to succeed by avoiding the most common pitfalls of this highly volatile but fascinating market.
Creativity is as essential to science as curiosity, physical intuition, and shrewd deduction from well-planned experiments. But, says Jones, ingenuity is very uncertain. Even for the greatest inventors, about 80 percent of ideas fail. Jokiness can help, and so can lots of random data. Jones has plenty of clever advice that will help spark that madly brilliant private thought in the first place—and will encourage you to take it further.
Neither dense nor demanding, The Aha! Moment is engrossing, edifying, and scientifically serious; yet it is lightly written and asks lots of silly questions. As Jones shows, it can often pay to take an absurd idea seriously.
What happens when the promise of prosperity overshadows the promise of the real gospel-the gospel of Christ? Believing that the prosperity gospel is constructed upon faulty theology, authors David Jones and Russell Woodbridge take a closer look at five crucial areas of error relating to the teaching of wealth. In a fair but firm tone, the authors discuss the history and theology of the prosperity gospel movement to reveal its fraudulent core biblical teachings that have been historically and popularly misinterpreted, even by today's most well-known pastors, including T. D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, and Kenneth Copeland. After an introduction and assessment of the movement, readers are invited to take a look at Scripture to understand what the Bible really says about wealth, poverty, suffering, and giving.

Zhu Xi (1130–1200), the chief architect of neo-Confucian thought, affected a momentous transformation in Chinese philosophy. His ideas came to dominate Chinese intellectual life, including the educational and civil service systems, for centuries. Despite his influence, Zhu Xi is known as the “great synthesizer” and rarely appreciated as a thinker in his own right. This volume presents Zhu Xi as a major world philosopher, one who brings metaphysics and cosmology into attunement with ethical and social practice. Contributors from the English- and Chinese-speaking worlds explore Zhu Xi’s unique thought and offer it to the Western philosophical imagination. Zhu Xi’s vision is critical, intellectually rigorous, and religious, telling us how to live in the transforming world of li—the emergent, immanent, and coherent patternings of natural and human milieu.
Martial Arts Training in Japan: A Guide for Westerners is the first book of its kind. Part travel guide, part survey of the many martial arts styles practiced in Japan, and part introduction to the basics of Japanese etiquette in and out of the dojo, this martial arts book is an excellent introduction to the ways of the Japanese martial arts and the philosophy that energizes martial arts practice even today. With information ranging from the mundane but crucial—such as how to go about testing for rank in a Japanese dojo—to a discussion of the four philosophical worlds of budo, author David Jones has provided an essential reference.
Martial Arts Training in Japan includes contact information and advice for training in Japan in the traditions of: Aikido: The Way of HarmonyIaido: The Way of Drawing the Sword Jodo: The Way of the Staff Judo: The Gentle Way Karate: The Way of the Empty Hand Kendo: The Way of the Sword Kyudo: The Way of the Bow Naginatado: The Way of the Halberd Ninjutsu: The Art of Stealth
Internationally, full-scale accelerated pavement testing, either on test roads or linear/circular test tracks, has proven to be a valuable tool that fills the gap between models and laboratory tests and long-term experiments on in-service pavements. Accelerated pavement testing is used to improve understanding of pavement behavior, and evaluation of innovative materials and additives, alternative materials processing, new construction techniques, and new types of structures. It provides quick comparisons between current and new practice and the ability to rapidly validate and calibrate models with quality data, with minimal risk at relatively low cost.
Advances in Pavement Design through Full-scale Accelerated Pavement Testing is a collection of papers from the 4th International Conference on Accelerated Pavement Testing (Davies, CA, USA, 19-21 September 2012), and includes contributions on a variety of topics including:
- Overview of Accelerated Pavement Testing
- Establishment of New Accelerated Pavement Testing Facilities
- Review of the Impact of Accelerated Pavement Testing Programs on Practice
- Instrumentation for Accelerated Pavement Testing
- Accelerated Pavement Testing on Asphalt Concrete Pavements
- Accelerated Pavement Testing on Portland Cement Concrete Pavements
- Accelerated Pavement Testing to Evaluate Functional Performance
- Relating Laboratory Tests to Performance using Accelerated Pavement Testing
- Development and Calibration of Empirical and Mechanistic-empirical Pavement Design Procedures and Models
- Benefit-cost Analysis of Accelerated Pavement Testing
Advances in Pavement Design through Full-scale Accelerated Pavement Testing will be useful to academics and professionals involved in pavement engineering.
Specifically, these essays examine whether and how the filmmaking styles and themes of New Queer Cinema have been mainstreamed—rendered familiar as points of interest in popular culture of the 21st century, challenging a queer-phobic cultural climate, and providing an incisive set of visual representations that can help inform continuing debates over queerness in public culture. For instance, what do we make of the burgeoning number of queer stories that are circulating not just in arthouses but in mainstream media? How much of a transformation in our collective sensibilities does this trend represent, and will it carry us toward a cultural landscape where identity is commonly understood and valued as multiple, fluid, and performative? While the editors of this collection find there is significant evidence that New Queer Cinema has achieved success in forging greater mainstream acceptance of queer perspectives in cinema and everyday culture, the essays we present offer a variety of voices, a timely set of observations on queer images in film, television, and popular culture.
