A Big Beaked, Big Bellied Bird Named Bill
Being the new bird in town is tough, and when the Bad Bird Bunch give Bill the brush-off, Bill learns that the best of friends donâ€™t have to look or act just like him.
Bill discovers that real friends are those who stick by your sideâ€”even when you have to face up to mean bullies or a big, hungry alligator. Through colorful friends such as DJ Dog, Brendon Mouse, Bartholomew Worm, and Bob Cat, Bill learns that having different friends doesnâ€™t make you bad, it makes you an individual. Through engaging text, Watkins drives home the messages of diversity, individuality, acceptance, and friendship. His characters are captivating and the problems they confront, such as low self-esteem and bullying, are typical of all children. The lively, colorful illustrations are as much fun as the dialog, as all the ingredients of this book make the perfect combination for inspiring kids to read and learn about interacting with friends.

Linear Electric Actuators And Generators
Linear electric actuators (LEAs) and linear electric generators (LEGs) are widely used electromagnetic devices. This book deals with LEAs that convert electric energy into controlled mechanical motion of limited travel and LEGs that transform mechanical energy into electric energy. Examples range from loudspeakers and microphones to magnetically levitated material transfer in ultraclean rooms. Much of the literature on linear actuators and generators covers the principles of operation and performance calculations of these devices. Little has been published on their control or on detailed design methodologies. This book presents the first unified treatment of the subject, including the construction, operation, control and design of LEAs and LEGs. Chapters describe linear induction, permanent-magnet, linear reluctance, switched reluctance, and linear stepper actuators, as well as various types of linear electric generators. The text is amply illustrated with numerous design examples.
