Where Do Presidents Come From from the Author: Mike Townsend. U.S. History comes alive in this laugh-out-loud nonfiction graphic novel all about the presidents! Michael Townsend presents his comic book guide to everything you ever wanted to know (and maybe a few things you didn't!) about the President of the United States. It's full of insanely weird facts about our leaders (Did you know that President Coolidge had a pet pygmy hippo named Billy?), as well as the history and powers of the presidency, day-to-day life, and pros and cons of the job. Even the most mundane of facts become hilarious in this brilliantly cheeky guide to our nation's MVP.

Hanna The President S Daughter from the Author: John Denison. After fifteen years I know when my dad’s pissed at me. He doesn’t look me in the eyes. He looks past me, around me, behind me, below me, till he’s ready to do battle. Then he zeroes in like a deer hunter with a laser scope. Tonight’s different because I don’t know why he’s pissed. I mean you know when you’ve been dumb, right? Man, if they find out I’m doing this I’m going to be in serious doo-doo. That kind of thing. I mean, really, I don’t figure a daughter’s doing her job if she doesn’t make her parents ballistic once in a while. But I’m also an A student; I play on the volleyball team; I’m still a virgin; I don’t smoke; I don’t do drugs; and I’m nice to my little brother. Things could be worse, right? So why the President’s miffed I haven’t a clue. Hanna Darling, the President’s Daughter, worked hard to get her dad elected President but now she’s not so sure it was a good idea. Her dad isn’t nearly as much fun and Hanna can’t go anywhere without her two Secret Service agents. But Hanna’s life is about to change again. It seems the world’s smartest Artificial Intelligence has fallen head-over-heels in love with her. Hanna and the world will never be the same!

A History Of Weed Science In The United States from the Author: Robert L Zimdahl. It is important that scientists think about and know their history - where they came from, what they have accomplished, and how these may affect the future. Weed scientists, similar to scientists in many technological disciplines, have not sought historical reflection. The technological world asks for results and for progress. Achievement is important not, in general, the road that leads to achievement. What was new yesterday is routine today, and what is described as revolutionary today may be considered antiquated tomorrow. Weed science has been strongly influenced by technology developed by supporting industries, subsequently employed in research and, ultimately, used by farmers and crop growers. The science has focused on results and progress. Scientists have been--and the majority remain--problem solvers whose solutions have evolved as rapidly as have the new weed problems needing solutions. In a more formal sense, weed scientists have been adherents of the instrumental ideology of modern science. That is an analysis of their work, and their orientation reveals the strong emphasis on practical, useful knowledge; on know how. The opposite, and frequently complementary orientation, that has been missing from weed science is an emphasis on contemplative knowledge; that is, knowing why. This book expands on and analyzes how these orientations have affected weed science’s development. The first analytical history of weed science to be written Compares the development of weed science, entomology and plant pathology Identifies the primary founders of weed science and describes their role
