DESCRIPTION:

Calling all future scientists!

Welcome to Toca Lab! Explore the colorful and electrifying world of science and meet all 118 of the elements from the periodic table.

Discover elements by experimenting with the lab tools!

* Take your element for a spin in the centrifuge.
* Warm them up in the Bunsen burner.
* Put the element on ice with the cooling agent!
* Add a drop or two of mysterious liquids from the test tubes.
* Change their voltage and make them magnetic with the oscilloscope.

Each element has it’s own personality. In Toca Lab, what does Neon sound like? Is Gold heavy or light? Is Nitrogen squishy or hard? Explore, inspect, and study each one and let us know! Can you find all 118?

The time has come, future scientists, to head into the lab to explore and discover. Put on your lab coat and protective eye gear because things are about to get experimental!

Toca Lab is a place for playing and having fun, and with it we hope to inspire kids to explore science. While the periodic table in Toca Lab is accurate, the way new elements are created is not. Instead, it’s a fun way to experiment, discover and create curiosity in the world of science. Toca Lab is just a starting point for further exploration!

DESCRIPTION:

Winner of the Booker Prize

On the Battersea Reach of the Thames, a mixed bag of the slightly disreputable, the temporarily lost, and the patently eccentric live on houseboats, rising and falling with the great river’s tides. Belonging to neither land nor sea, they cling to one another in a motley yet kindly society. There is Maurice, by occupation a male prostitute, by happenstance a receiver of stolen goods. And Richard, a buttoned-up ex-navy man whose boat dominates the Reach. Then there is Nenna, a faithful but abandoned wife, the diffident mother of two young girls running wild on the waterfront streets.

It is Nenna’s domestic predicament that, as it deepens, draws the relations among this scrubby community together into ever more complex and comic patterns. The result is one of Fitzgerald’s greatest triumphs, a novel the Booker judges deemed “flawless.”

“A marvelous achievement: strong, supple, humane, ripe, generous, and graceful.” —Sunday Times

Daily Deal for February 20 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

A dark and bitingly humorous collection of short stories from the “brilliantly evocative” (Time) Paul Theroux

A family watches in horror as their patriarch transforms into the singing, wise-cracking lead of an old-timey minstrel show. A renowned art collector relishes publicly destroying his most valuable pieces. Two boys stand by helplessly as their father stages an all-consuming war on the raccoons living in the woods around their house. A young artist devotes himself to a wealthy, malicious gossip, knowing that it’s just a matter of time before she turns on him.
In this new collection of short stories, acclaimed author Paul Theroux explores the tenuous leadership of the elite and the surprising revenge of the overlooked. He shows us humanity possessed, consumed by its own desire and compulsion, always with his carefully honed eye for detail and the subtle idiosyncrasies that bring his characters to life. Searing, dark, and sure to unsettle, Mr. Bones is a stunning new display of Paul Theroux’s “fluent, faintly sinister powers of vision and imagination” (John Updike, The New Yorker).

DESCRIPTION:

From Slouch to Runner
C25K is short for Couch to five kilometers. C25K Pro for your smartphone is designed to get just about anyone from being a couch potato to running either five kilometers or 30 minutes in just nine weeks.

Too many people have been deterred from running simply because they try starting off too fast and too far. Their bodies rebel, and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to do this to themselves. You should ease into your running program gradually, with the help of C25K Pro on your Android device.

The Program
Couch to five kilometers is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The C25K running plan from Cool Running is a great way to get someone who’s never run before to being a three-mile runner in nine weeks. It alternates running and walking, slowly getting the body accustomed to distance running. It times your workout, letting you know through audio clips when it’s time to switch your pace while listening to the music of your choice or podcasts you’ve downloaded onto your smartphone. For example, switch pace from walking to running, or from running to cooling down. Additionally, if you like C25K, there’s a follow up plan that will get you to 10K.

Features
This Pro version has background mode, music controller, voice cues, custom sounds and notifications, and Facebook integration.

In C25K Pro’s settings, you can customize your program regimen:

Volume boost allows you to set the correct volume for program notifications while other music of your choice is playing.
Screen lock allows you to choose whether or not to lock your screen during a session so no other processes can be accidentally launched while you’re running.
Vibrate on Notification alerts you physically of a change in your running session.
Customize your Facebook messages and choose whether you want to be prompted to update your Facebook page.
You can choose your own notification sounds on top of the built-in voice and bell ones. You can actually use any ringtone for any notification.
You can choose additional notifications for one-minute left, halfway, or custom markers. You can also choose whether you want the notifications spoken by a male or female voice, or bell alerts.
You can control the music right from within the app. No need to switch apps if you want to pause, forward, or go back on your playlist.
Notification for “turning around” when you’re in the middle of the workout, in case you want to run and then come back.
