Let Our Expert Tutors Help You Cross All Obstacles

As science and technology advance, the things that you are expected to study have also advanced. Education is no easier. There are so many things to learn before you complete your studies at school and junior college. The syllabus has become tough as more complex things have to be learned. You need to be fully prepared for education at the university level where there is even lesser personal attention to each student and the volume of studies is very high. Your secondary and junior college syllabus are made tough to prepare you for the university education. This is the reason that there is a sudden increase in the volume and difficulty when you go to the secondary level.

Some students find it difficult to understand certain subjects when they reach the A level. This is especially true with chemistry. The subject itself is very complex with many branches to it. Some of them have complex equations and formulas that are difficult for even the brilliant students to understand. Schools cannot concentrate too much on each student and hence some of the students don’t understand what is happening. This gives them the fear that they will not do well in the exams. All they need is a little personal attention and time.

 

Home tutors are the best solution to relieve these students from their tension. A home tutor can explain slowly the basics of these equations. Once the fundamentals are understood then the subject not only becomes easy but also a favourite subject for the students. Edu Aid has highly educated tutors who will give the students A-level chemistry tuition at their homes. They can easily put the students out of their misery by explaining the things very clearly.

 

Economics is a subject that cannot be limited to school studies. If you need to understand the theories of economics, you must know a lot of things that are happening around you. The subject deals with what is happening in the world every day, and it is difficult to study well at school. A good economics tuition will make the students masters in the subject. Edu Aid has many highly-qualified economics tutors for your support.

Fortress Plant by Dale Walters
 Fortress Plant: How to Survive When Everything Wants to Eat You - Dale Walters

TITLE:  Fortress Plant:  How to Survive When Everything Wants to Eat You

 

AUTHOR:  Dale Walters

 

DATE PUBLISHED:  2017

 

FORMAT:  Hardback

 

ISBN-13:  978-0-19-874560-0

_______________________________

 

From the blurb:

"Everything, it seems, is out to get you - bacteria, fungi, insects, vegetarians... even other plants.  So how do you survive?  As Dale Walters explains in this extraordinary account, you fight back.  And plants are not short of weaponry.  Constant vigilance, rapid communications systems, several lines of fortifications, chemical weapons, insect allies - all are deployed against invaders.  And you can't rest.  You have to keep innovating, and sharpening your defences, because you can be sure your enemies will be finding ways around them.

 

All this, of course, happens withot direction of purpose.  These are evolutionary arms races resulting from natural selection.  But they are no less deadly for that."

________________________________

 

Dale Walters makes use of an amusing fortress metaphor (the plant is the fortress and bacteria, fungi, insects, vegetarians etc are the invaders) to explore the large variety of methods stationary plants use to defend themselves from everything that want to eat them.  This book is divided into chapters on "recognizing the enemy", alerting the plant of imminent invasion "call to arms", the weapons of war, the variety of chemical compounds used to deter/destroy invaders, aid from plant "friends", and the never-ending evolving arms-race between plants and their enemies.  This book is written with the intelligent, intersted reader in mind - not everything is over-explained or simplified and there is a fair amount of botany and biochemistry involved.  However,   I do not believe that there is anything particularly difficult to understand in this book provided the reader is paying attention and not expecting to breeze through the book.  I found this book very interesting, with a lovely writing style, juicy science stuff and no irrelevant biographical side tangents.  The multitude of photographs were also very useful.

A is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie by Kathryn Harkup
A Is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie - Kathryn Harkup

 

TITLE:  A is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie

 

AUTHOR:  Kathryn Harkup

 

DATE PUBLISHED:  2015

 

FORMAT:  Hardcover

 

ISBN-13:  9781472911308

___________________________

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the blurb:

"People are fascinated by murder. The popularity of murder mystery books, TV series, and even board games shows that there is an appetite for death, and the more unusual or macabre the method, the better. With gunshots or stabbings the cause of death is obvious, but poisons are inherently more mysterious. How are some compounds so deadly in such tiny amounts?

Agatha Christie used poison to kill her characters more often than any other crime fiction writer. The poison was a central part of the novel, and her choice of deadly substances was far from random; the chemical and physiological characteristics of each poison provide vital clues to the discovery of the murderer. Christie demonstrated her extensive chemical knowledge (much of it gleaned by working in a pharmacy during both world wars) in many of her novels, but this is rarely appreciated by the reader.

Written by former research chemist Kathryn Harkup, each chapter takes a different novel and investigates the poison used by the murderer. Fact- and fun-packed, A is for Arsenic looks at why certain chemicals kill, how they interact with the body, and the feasibility of obtaining, administering, and detecting these poisons, both when Christie was writing and today.
"

 

Kathryn Harkup has written a lovely book that explores the poisons used by Agatha Christie in her novels.  The introductory chapter provides some interesting biographical material of Christie and why she knew so much about poisons.  Harkup then dedicates the next 14 chapters to a specific poison, such as arsenic, belladonna, cyanide, digitalis, eserine, hemlock, monkshood, nicotine, opium, phosphorus ricin, strychnine, thallium and veronal (a type of barbiturate).  Each chapter describes how Christie used the poison in her novels, how the poison works, if there is an antidote, and examples of the poison used in real life.
 

I am not an Agatha Christie fan so found the sections describing Christie's novels and their plot summaries didn't particularly appeal to me, and also became tedious after a while.  Reading several plot summaries does not make for thrilling reading.  Harukp managed to avoid spoilers for the most part, or at least warned of spoilers before discussing pertinent Christie novels.  This will no doubt be appreciated for Christie fans who haven't read all of her novels.

 

The sections that describe how each poison effects the body were more interesting to me.  Harkup provided enough science to understand why substances were toxic without bogging the lay reader down with irrelevant detail.    Many poisons have similar effects on the body (i.e. they impair nerve functioning), so some sections were a bit repetitive by necessity.  Appendix 2 provides structures of a few of the chemicals described in the book, which was a nice addition.

 

The real life poisoning attempts were also interesting, especially the manner in which the poisoners were eventually caught.

 

This book would appeal to fans of Agatha Christie and for those who would like to know how a variety of poisons work.  There is no overall narrative, and each chapter can be read separately and out of order.  None the less, this is an interesting, informative and enjoyable book.
