Crazy Cycling Chick: The Inspirational Journey of Angie Across America

Marshall Cavendish International Asia Pte Ltd
Free sample

Moving from Singapore to California was a breath of fresh air for Angie. With the curiosity and spunk of an animal let loose in the wild, she began to explore her surroundings on her bicycle. The idea struck her: Why not cycle across America? And why not film a documentary to chronicle the adventure?

She would eventually complete the Northwestern-central route in under 40 days. 4,000 miles at a pace of 100 miles a day. Angie’s story of cycling across the third largest continent in the world is a story of peaks and troughs (both literal and metaphorical), overcoming physical, mental and emotional obstacles, and busting old beliefs. It is also a celebration of friendships forged with the people she met on her journey.

Angie’s account of her crazy dream, from conception to actualization, will resonate with anyone who has ever dreamed big.

 Apart from the textbooks that students use in school, Science Partner: A Complete Guide to Lower Block Science plays a significant role as a resource book for them. Topics under each theme (Diversity, Systems, Cycles, Energy and Interactions) are covered in detail based on the latest primary science syllabus for primary 3 and 4. The language used in this book is simple and easy to understand so that students can easily and effectively learn and understand the concepts of science. A variety of examples and illustrations are found within each topic to generate the interest of the students. 

In addition, four different types of pictorial icons are used in the book. They point out to students to pay attention to the important information that is given.

Example - provide examples and explanations.Alert - bring to students’ attention a concept, term or information that they need to fully and consciously understand. This has been added because it is found that many students have a common misconception of an idea, term or concept in science and it should be rectified.Extra - indicate that more information on the topic is given so that students can increase their knowledge of the subject matter.Experiment - indicate to students the relevant experiments that need to be conducted so as to build knowledge and understanding of a concept.

Important points are listed out at the end of each topic under a titled box ‘What I Have Learnt In This Chapter’ for quick and easy reference before the examinations. Students will find that this resource book helps make studying science an enjoyable journey for them. It is hoped that through this book, a student’s learning of science concepts is further enhanced and his interest level in science is increased.

Finding Ultra is an incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

On the night before he was to turn forty, Rich Roll experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he could see where his current sedentary life was taking him—and he woke up.

Plunging into a new routine that prioritized a plant-based lifestyle and daily training, Rich morphed—in a matter of mere months—from out of shape, mid-life couch potato to endurance machine. Finding Ultra recounts Rich’s remarkable journey to the starting line of the elite Ultraman competition, which pits the world’s fittest humans in a 320-mile ordeal of swimming, biking, and running. And following that test, Rich conquered an even greater one: the EPIC5—five Ironman-distance triathlons, each on a different Hawaiian island, all completed in less than a week.

In the years since Finding Ultra was published, Rich has become one of the world’s most recognized advocates of plant-based living. In this newly revised and updated edition, he shares the practices, tools, and techniques he uses for optimal performance, longevity, and wellness, including diet and nutrition protocols. Rich reflects on the steps he took to shift his mindset and leverage deep reservoirs of untapped potential to achieve success beyond his wildest imagination, urging each of us to embark on our own journey of self-discovery.
“The holy grail for disillusioned cycling fans . . . The book’s power is in the collective details, all strung together in a story that is told with such clear-eyed conviction that you never doubt its veracity. . . . The Secret Race isn’t just a game changer for the Lance Armstrong myth. It’s the game ender.”—Outside
 
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • WINNER OF THE WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD

The Secret Race is the book that rocked the world of professional cycling—and exposed, at long last, the doping culture surrounding the sport and its most iconic rider, Lance Armstrong. Former Olympic gold medalist Tyler Hamilton was once one of the world’s top-ranked cyclists—and a member of Lance Armstrong’s inner circle. Over the course of two years, New York Times bestselling author Daniel Coyle conducted more than two hundred hours of interviews with Hamilton and spoke with numerous teammates, rivals, and friends. The result is an explosive page-turner of a book that takes us deep inside a shadowy, fascinating, and surreal world of unscrupulous doctors, anything-goes team directors, and athletes so relentlessly driven to win that they would do almost anything to gain an edge. For the first time, Hamilton recounts his own battle with depression and tells the story of his complicated relationship with Lance Armstrong. This edition features a new Afterword, in which the authors reflect on the developments within the sport, and involving Armstrong, over the past year. The Secret Race is a courageous, groundbreaking act of witness from a man who is as determined to reveal the hard truth about his sport as he once was to win the Tour de France.
 
With a new Afterword by the authors.
 
“Loaded with bombshells and revelations.”—VeloNews

“[An] often harrowing story . . . the broadest, most accessible look at cycling’s drug problems to date.”—The New York Times
 
“ ‘If I cheated, how did I get away with it?’ That question, posed to SI by Lance Armstrong five years ago, has never been answered more definitively than it is in Tyler Hamilton’s new book.”—Sports Illustrated
 
“Explosive.”—The Daily Telegraph (London)
 The learning and teaching of composition at Primary Five and Primary Six is similar. How well a student writes a composition is dependent primarily on his or her exposure to the English Language. Language skills are not acquired overnight but can be gradually enhanced through intensive exposure, a voracious appetite for reading and constant practice. Many students who are able to breeze through Paper 2 of their English Language examination find it difficult to score well for Paper 1 – Composition and Situation Writing. Given that Paper 1 takes about 30% of the entire PSLE English examination, it is essential for students to develop their writing skills to score in this area.

Unfortunately, many students do not get sufficient opportunities to write compositions in school and have them graded by their teachers. Practice makes perfect. It is beneficial for students to get regular practice in writing their own compositions.

This book has been specially designed to be a valuable educational aid for students of all ability levels. Whether your child is facing difficulties in writing compositions or is already a prolific young writer seeking to up his or her writing skills a notch, this book will provide the stimulus for your child to take his or her writing skills to new heights.

The model compositions are of a high standard to serve as a reference for students and inspire them to further develop their writing skills. Ample guidance is provided for every composition exercise to help students to pen down terrific compositions they never thought they were capable of.

By faithfully going through every composition and situational writing exercise, your child will be embarking on a fruitful journey towards becoming a more confident and creative writer.
