Build Your Own Electric Car by S.Leitman and B.Brant

Seth Leitman (Briarcliff Manor, NY) is currently President and Managing Member of the ETS Energy Store, LLC, which sells organic, natural, and
sustainable products for business and home use (from energy efficient bulbs to electric vehicle conversion referrals). Previously, he worked for the New York State Power Authority and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, where he helped develop, market, and manage electric and hybrid vehicle programs serving New York State and the New York metropolitan area. Seth is the consulting editor for a series of upcoming titles called the “Green Guru Guides,” which focus on implementing environmentally friendly technologies and making them work for you.
  Bob Brant was the author of the first book, and some might say ahead of his time in his passion to convert to electric. The first edition of this book was published in 1993. While there have obviously been updates and technological advances since that time, many of the concepts…

The Pathan(English) By Khan Abdul Ghani Khan

This is the English version of Ghani Khan's book 'The Pathan'

The folk-songs of a nation are its spiritual self-portraits, provided the race is primitive enough to be honest. It is easy to be honest in feeling __ one cannot help it __ but extremely difficult to be so in the expression of it, specially as men become civilized. When custom begins to dictate to instinct, when the eyes look more at the listeners than the face of the beloved, that is time when convention overcomes music, ethics overcome passion, and desire is substituted for love. So if you find the Pathan folk-songs too brutal and naked direct, do not forget that he lives a straight and primitive life in a lonely valley or small village, and is too busy worrying about the next thing to shoot, to find time to be civilized. Let us go to his valley in Dir. There he is__ walking towards us, of medium height and sensitive build. He has long locks, neatly oiled and combed, wrapped in a red silk kerchief which is twis…

The Pathan(Pashto) By Khan Abdul Ghani Khan.pdf

This is the Pashto translation of Ghani Khan’s book The Pathan, read online or download for free.
Some Text from the book     The most difficult part of writing is to know where to begin, just as the most difficult part of speaking is to know where to stop. Nothing is more irritating than a blank sheet of paper staring stupidly into your face when you arc bursting to write but cannot make up your mind how to set about it.    I want to talk about the Pathans, the people I love, which makes my task harder than ever. I want you to love them as I do. But the Pathan is not easy to love. He takes a lot of knowing. His is a most complicated simplicity. I want to bring him down from the peaks of Khyber and the fields of Hashnager face to face with you-in his torn clothes and grass shoes, his eyes full of manliness, laughter and the devil, and his head full of a childish and noble pride-the chief camouflage he uses to hide his poverty and want. Yes, I want to bring him to you and make him tal…

From BCCI to ISI by Abid Ullah Jan

ENTRAPMENT is the illegal and unsavory practice of luring someone into committing a crime, and then prosecuting him for it. Sometimes the entrapped person, organization, or state has no intention or knowledge of the committed crime. The target becomes a victim of a set-up by government agencies, criminal elements, or a collaboration of both, all intent on achieving unstated objectives. Various agencies within the U.S. Government have been using entrapment in diverse ways. “Frame-ups” in drug “conspiracies” are routine in the United States: there are literally thousands of drug-related conspiracy cases in the United States in which innocent people are implicated and punished. Arnold S. Trebach writes in his book, The Great Drug War: “In many of these cases, the DEA allowed some of its informants to traffic in drugs in exchange for turning in their friends and supplying other information. In too many cases, Gieringer claimed, DEA agents themselves directly engaged in trafficking.” Trapping…

Active and Passive Voice Made Easy by Afzal Anwar Mufti

Need of English The conditions under which English is taught in KPK (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) is not conducive toteaching and learning the language. Courses are taught without specific curricular objectives;English language teachers are not equipped with efficient pedagogical tools; most Englishlanguage teachers rely on obsolete teaching techniques; inappropriate textbooks are chosen toteach English as a Second Language; language teaching facilities are not equipped with audiovisual aids; the examination system is erroneous, as it falls short of measuring attainment; andthe education system is lacking an observation and feedback mechanism.It is a fact that despite studying English in schools and colleges for about 6-8 years, students, especially coming from rural backgrounds, are not able to communicate inEnglish with relative ease and success. Even in some areas where students use a regionallanguage as a first language  besides Pashto - and in such areas English becomes a thirdlanguage  - …

In 1976 he took charge of the secretive Engineering Research Laboratories at Kahuta, now named the A.Q. Khan Research Laboratories in his honor, where he assembled the machinery and manpower it would take to produce weapon-grade uranium. Khan recruited scores of Pakistani scientists living abroad to work with him at Kahuta, boasting that "the scientists and engineers whom I recruited had never heard of a centrifuge, even though some of them were Ph.D.'s."

Understanding Islam

A Section From this Book

    When someone converts to Islam, God forgives all of his previous sins and evil deeds. A man called Amr came to the Prophet Muhammad(s.a.w) and said: “Give me your right hand so that I may give you my pledge of loyalty.” The Prophet (s.a.w) stretched out his right hand. Amr withdrew his hand. The
Prophet (s.a.w) said: { What has happened to you, O Amr? } He replied: “I intend to lay down a condition.” The Prophet (s.a.w) asked: { What condition do you intend to put forward? } Amr said: “That God forgive my sins.” The Prophet said: { Didn’t you know that converting to Islam erases all previous sins? }

    After converting to Islam, the person will be rewarded for his or her good and bad deeds according to the following saying of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) : { Your Lord, Who is blessed and exalted, is most merciful. If someone intends to do a good deed but does not do it, a good deed will be recorded for him. And
if he does do it, (a reward of) ten to se…

Computer Repair Service by Philip Spry - Lynn Spry

I love computers and have since I was in my early teens. Over the decades, I’ve watched them develop from giant clunky boxes with green screens to tiny works of art that project photo-realistic games on monitors the size of walls. I eagerly read each new issue of Byte and PC Magazine, waiting for the next breakthrough in hardware and software; it’s probably fair to classify me as a computer enthusiast. As a hobby, it’s relatively inexpensive.      Think about it — the most expensive desktop CPU in existence at any given time is usually a little more than $1,000. That’s it! Imagine having the ability to buy a Formula 1 race car engine and pop it into your car for less than the cost of cable TV for a year! Of course, engines don’t double in power every two years, but the ease and simplicity of computer upgrades have made most of us relative experts in working on our own systems. Six years ago I was in this position. I had built my own computers for years and was the guy everyone came to …
