            A record of events from ABC reporters on the ground during our worst ever fire season The bushfires that burnt across Australia from June 2019 to February 2020 were unprecedented. By the time the rains came, they had devoured more than 18 million hectares of bushland, destroyed n...early 3000 homes, claimed the lives of 34 people, killed about a billion animals and driven more to the brink of extinction. The heartbreak, pain, loss and uncertainty has been felt far and wide. These were fires that affected nearly everyone along the east coast directly or indirectly, and touched the hearts of people across the country. But out of the tragedies, the fear, the lost homes, the burnt forests, the bleak holidays, the unrelenting smoke, have come stories of courage and community. ABC reporters on the ground during the crisis brought many of these stories into the homes of the nation. This book contains updates of these stories and others, as well as reflections on how such a crisis occurred and what we learnt. It is both a record of the events and a tribute to those who endured, escaped, fought and in some cases paid the ultimate price in the awful conflagrations that consumed our summer. Contributions are from Jen Browning, Jessie Davies, Daniel Doody, Matthew Doran, Richard Glover, Liz Hobday, Nick Hose, Tom Joyner, Jonathon Kendall, Stacey Lee, Hamish MacDonald, Jade Macmillan, Adriane Reardon, Michael Rowland, Peter Sommerville, Josh Szeps, Claire Wheaton, Williams, Casey Briggs, Baz Ruddick, Erin Semmler. All profits from this book will go to the bushfire recovery effort. By purchasing this book you are assisting people, animals, forests and communities affected by the fires.

            Imagine you woke up one morning to find everything created by engineers had disappeared. What would you see? No cars, no houses; no phones, bridges or roads. No tunnels under tidal rivers, no soaring skyscrapers. The impact that engineering has had on the human experience is unde...niable, but it is also often invisible. In BUILT, structural engineer Roma Agrawal takes a unique look at how construction has evolved from the mud huts of our ancestors to skyscrapers of steel that reach hundreds of metres into the sky. She unearths how engineers have tunnelled through kilometres of solid mountains; how they've bridged across the widest and deepest of rivers, and tamed Nature's precious - and elusive - water resources. She tells vivid tales of the visionaries who created the groundbreaking materials in the Pantheon's record-holding concrete dome and the frame of the record-breaking Eiffel Tower. Through the lens of an engineer, Roma examines tragedies like the collapse of the Quebec Bridge, highlighting the precarious task of ensuring people's safety they hold at every step. With colourful stories of her life-long fascination with buildings - and her own hand-drawn illustrations - Roma reveals the extraordinary secret lives of structures.

            In recent years, heat pumps have emerged as a promising new form of technology with a relatively low environmental impact. Moreover, they have presented householders with an opportunity to reduce their heating bills. Heat pumps can heat a building by 'pumping' heat from either th...e ground or the air outside: an intriguing process which utilizes principles that are somewhat analogous to those employed in the domestic refrigerator. Armed with the practical information contained in these pages, homeowners will have the necessary knowledge to take advantage of this potentially low-carbon technology to heat their properties. Now in an updated new edition, Heat Pumps for the Home describes what a heat pump is, how it works, the different methods of pumping heat and the importance of an appropriate and well-planned installation. It also provides you with the information that you need in order to make up your own mind about whether a heat pump might be appropriate to your own circumstances, and also demonstrates what you need to do to in order to make the system work efficiently.
