A textbook history of Iowa for fifth grade students.
What is Iowa's only town on an island? What legendary film star was born in Winterset in 1907? What popular ice cream treat was invented in the town of Onawa in 1920? (Sabula; John Wayne; Eskimo Pie) Iowa is a state known for its farms and corn production. But there is much more to discover about the Hawkeye State, which celebrates its 155th anniversary in 2001. The questions and answers in Iowa Trivia range from the fairly obvious to the slighty more difficult to the totally obscure. They are divided into six fun categories that enable the book to be used with trivia board games: geography, entertainment, history, art/literature, sports/leisure, and science/nature. Iowa Trivia is a great gift for people who think they know it all about Iowa-or anyone who would like to.

Written by New York Times columnist and Missing Manual series creator David Pogue, this book shows you how to get the most out of your new Apple iPhone. The name iPhone may be doing Apple a disservice. This machine is so packed with possibilities that the cellphone may actually be the least interesting part. The iPhone is at least three products merged into one: a phone, a wide-screen iPod and a wireless, touch-screen Internet communicator. The iPhone's beauty alone may be enough for you to dig for your credit cards, but its Mac OS X-based software makes it not so much a smartphone as something out of the film "Minority Report." The real magic, however, awaits when you browse the Web. You get to see the entire Web page on the iPhone's screen. All of this is cooked up with Apple's traditional secret sauce of simplicity, intelligence and whimsy.

The iPhone camera is a sophisticated device. It has compelled millions of people worldwide to take a new or renewed interest in photography. Let's face it: most of us now have a tiny yet highly competent camera in a pocket or purse at all times these days, and we use it to grab shots of people, places, and things more and more often as the technology improves-and you know what? We're largely pleased with those captures. If you're a SERIOUS photographer, you may be wondering just how much mileage you can get out of your "simple," ever-ready iPhone camera. Well, the answer may surprise you. In this book, Michael Fagans deconstructs photos taken in 60 scenarios-with a diverse array of subjects, in changing lighting conditions, in places that present unique challenges-showing you how to use solid, traditional photographic techniques to create great shots. Yes, Fagans will teach you the basics of creating a great photo. But there's far more: He'll show you that an iPhone, with the aid of apps, can mimic looks achieved by vintage cameras, a range of lenses, and countless filters. In this book, Fagans teaches you how to use free and low-cost apps and Instagram options to create (or, rather, re-create) beloved vintage-photo effects that you'd achieve with the Holga (a plastic vintage camera known for its unexpected lens distortion) and medium-format-camera looks. You'll learn how to choose and use digital lenses, filters, and effects-and combine and re-combine them-to intensify color and contrast, de-saturate color, introduce lens aberrations, play with the grain and color cast in the image, and much, much more. What to emulate the look of vintage film stock to create a photo with an aged, time-worn feel? No problem. Want to introduce a little focusing inaccuracy for effect? Easily done. Want to do these things AND use traditional, professional artificial lighting sources (think a large softbox), a professional image-editing platform (Photoshop), and really refine your message while pulling out all the stops? Fagans shows you how. The deconstruction of the images in this book makes it worth the price of admission. Still, however, there is far more: Fagans is a photographer's photographer. The book is peppered with inspiring quotes from Ansel Adams, Minor White, and countless other photographic visionaries that speak to the heart of photography.
