Resurrection: The Legend of Sanction
The Legend of Sanction (Part one: Resurrection) - Kayne Sampson

by Kayne Sampson

 

This has an interesting concept where demons are corporeal and have uneasy relations with humans. There was a lot of emphasis on swordplay and a smattering of magic that would appeal to sword and sorcery readers, but the writing struck me as middle-grade and didn't hold my attention as much as I'd like.

 

I would recommend it for boys 10-13 and maybe a little older. Especially reluctant readers who might get captivated by the fight scenes.

Lifeboat 12
Lifeboat 12 - Susan Hood

Audience: Grades 4 & up

Format: Audiobook/Library

 

I shouldn't do it.

- first line

This book is based on a true story of kids that were travelling on the SS City of Benares to Canada to escape the Nazi bombing of London. When the ship is torpedoed, Ken (13) and other survivors are left on Lifeboat 12 in the middle of the ocean. It's the little details in this book that make it so impactful. Ken was supposed to be on a different lifeboat, the young woman who makes up stories for the boys, the one sailor who acts crazy to make everyone laugh.
The story is told in verse, so I recommend reading a written copy more than the audio (or maybe both together). The audio is very well done and I could hear the emphasis and lyricism in the narrator's voice. The story is compelling and shows the importance of believing in yourself and each other and joining together to survive. Highly recommended. A 6-8 Sunshine State nominated book for 2020-21.

Book review : The titans curse Rick Riordan
The titans curse - Rick Riordan

October 4 - 19

Summary - When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and . . . a ride from his mom.

The demigods reace to the rescue to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up a devious trap, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.

Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge yet—the chilling prophecy of the Titan's curse

favorite quotes “Wow,” Thalia muttered. “Apollo is hot.”
“He’s the sun god,” I said.
“That’s not what I mean


Let us find the dam snack bar," Zoe said. "We should eat while we can."
Grover cracked a smile. "The dam snack bar?"
Zoe blinked. "Yes. What is funny?"
"Nothing," Grover said, trying to keep a straight face. "I could use some dam french fries."
Even Thalia smiled at that. "And I need to use the dam restroom."
...
I started cracking up, and Thalia and Grover joined in, while Zoe just looked at me. "I do not understand."
"I want to use the dam water fountain," Grover said.
"And..." Thalia tried to catch her breath. "I want to buy a dam t-shirt.”

 

Do you always try to kill people when they blow their nose?”

Nabard Grade A Notification

 

As NABARD was a part of RBI before 1982, it shares the same work culture as RBI. There is a fixed NABARD Grade A Officer salary as well as a certain level of perks and allowances entitled to Grade A Officers.  This is one of the highest paying government jobs in the country. I will be writing down every pay scale in a very simple language to help you out understand the pay scale.  

 

The Gross monthly salary after you become a NABARD Grade A officer is 66,864 /-. It doesn’t mean that the NABARD Grade A in-hand salary is 66,864/-.  

 

Education Eligibility for NABARD Grade A 2020 

 

The eligibility of NABARD Grade A is not that tough when we compare it with all the other government exams in India. It gives you a chance to make your dreams come true without judging you on the basis of your past educational qualifications. So let’s jump right in. 

 

NABARD has been posting vacancies from the last few years in different streams and they have been increasing the number of vacancies every year. You will be shocked to see how organized they are in terms of vacancies.

 

You have separate vacancies for Legal stream, agriculture stream, engineering stream, and a few other streams.
