Creating Time and Energy: A Foundational Workbook for Scattered Parents is a personalized conversation about the important work of raising up the next generation that provides a forced "pause" in the everyday chaos of parenting. As a parent, your work is imperative to not only your little people, but to the world around us. Affording yourself this tiny pause to build your parenting foundation in what matters most, you'll notice how very much more joy exists in the journey. You'll find the concepts within are nothing new, but this logical and humorous presentation makes the process simple and doable. You've always had this time and energy, but now that you're a parent, it's been hiding in the mess of it all! Find it again and move forward rooted in a sound foundation that you yourself design using your personal values as a guide. Within, you'll find powerful questions, exercises, encouragement, and steps to move your chaotic moments into the order that works best for you and your family. There are no prescriptions in here. (I don't know about you, but the magical "Book of Parenting Rules" didn't come with my babies. I brought each of them home with a crocheted hat and a 1-pager on how not to kill them in the first month.) If you're willing to dedicate one hour per week for one month to getting your proverbial and literal house in order, then you're ready to move ahead. Grab a pen or an open document and get ready to make some headway. If you're reading this and saying, "No, I don't have any time in my chaotic life to learn how to make things easier," then definitely grab a copy! This process is REALLY for you, now more than ever. Clear off a space on the dash of the minivan, grab the back of a piece of junk mail or spelling test from the floor and a crayon from the back seat. Recline and use some of the minutes you're waiting for soccer or dance class to finish and change your life.
A unique electrical engineering approach to alternative sources of energy<br> <br> Unlike other books that deal with alternative sources of energy from a mechanical point of view, Integration of Alternative Sources of Energy takes an electrical engineering perspective. Moreover, the authors examine the full spectrum of alternative and renewable energy with the goal of developing viable methods of integrating energy sources and storage efficiently. Readers become thoroughly conversant with the principles, possibilities, and limits of alternative and renewable energy.<br> <br> The book begins with a general introduction and then reviews principles of thermodynamics. Next, the authors explore both common and up-and-coming alternative energy sources, including hydro, wind, solar, photovoltaic, thermosolar, fuel cells, and biomass. Following that are discussions of microturbines and induction generators, as well as a special chapter dedicated to energy storage systems. After setting forth the fundamentals, the authors focus on how to integrate the various energy sources for electrical power production. Discussions related to system operation, maintenance, and management, as well as standards for interconnection, are also set forth.<br> <br> Throughout the book, diagrams are provided to demonstrate the electrical operation of all the systems that are presented. In addition, extensive use of examples helps readers better grasp how integration of alternative energy sources can be accomplished.<br> <br> The final chapter gives readers the opportunity to learn about the HOMER Micropower Optimization Model. This computer model, developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), assists in the design of micropower systems and facilitates comparisons of power generation techniques. Readers can download the software from the NREL Web site.<br> <br> This book is a must-read for engineers, consultants, regulators, and environmentalists involved in energy production and delivery, helping them evaluate alternative energy sources and integrate them into an efficient energy delivery system. It is also a superior textbook for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students.
