Graphene is a two dimensional material consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb or chicken wire structure. It is the thinnest material known to man and yet is also one of the strongest materials there is. It conducts electricity as well as copper and is better than all other materials as a conductor of heat. Graphene is almost completely transparent, yet so dense that even the smallest of atoms cannot pass through it. Being such a fascinating material lots of people are interested in it and it has become something of a mystery that is generally thought of as being something only an expensive lab can produce. This is far from the truth. This book grew out of a series of youtube videos i created to show how graphene could be made in your own home with a minimum of materials and tools. So many people asked me to write it down that I have done just that and the result is here in these pages. If you read the book and watch the videos you too can be making . . .

Millions of words have poured forth about man's trip to the moon, but until now few people have had a sense of the most engrossing side of the adventure; namely, what went on in the minds of the astronauts themselves - in space, on the moon, and even during certain odysseys on earth. It is this, the inner life of the astronauts, that Tom Wolfe describes with his almost uncanny emapthetic powers, that made this book a classic.

Cats have been popular household pets for thousands of years, and their numbers only continue to rise. Today there are three cats for every dog on the planet, and yet cats remain more mysterious, even to their most adoring owners. In, renowned anthrozoologist John Bradshaw takes us further into the mind of the domestic cat than ever before, using cutting-­edge scientific research to explain the true nature-­and needs-­of our feline friends. Tracing the cat’s evolution from solitary hunter to domesticated companion, Bradshaw shows that cats remain independent, predatory, and wary of social contact, qualities that often clash with the demands of our modern lifestyles. If we’re to live in harmony with cats, Bradshaw contends, we first need to understand and adapt to their ancient quirks. A must-­read for any cat lover, challenges our most basic assumptions about cats and promises to dramatically improve their lives-­and ours.

QoS is the Bigfoot of networking, a enduring part of technological folklore. People talk about QoS, but because it rarely succeeds, it has no practical use outside of experimental testbeds and incomplete applications. Today, the main purpose of QoS is to foster discrimination in services and unnecessary billing.
