Though not traditionally thought of as key natural resource, glaciers are a crucial part of both our global ecosystem and the sustaining of life around the world. Comprising three quarters of the worlds fresh water, they freeze in the winter and melt in the summer, supplying water that is plentiful enough for agriculture and clean enough to drink. Without them, many of the planets rivers would run dry shortly after the winter snow-melt. In fact, a single mid-sized glacier in regions like California, Argentina, India, Kyrgyzstan, or Chile can provide an entire community with drinking water for generations. On the other hand, when global temperatures rise not only does glacier ice wither away into the oceans, but these massive ice bodies can become unstable and cause severe natural events like glacier tsunamis.
But glaciers often exist well outside our environmental consciousness, and they are mostly unprotected from atmospheric impacts from transportation emissions, or from industrial threats such as the mining industry, which seeks the precious metals that lie beneath them.
Glaciers: The Politics of Ice is a scientific, cultural, and political examination of the cryospherethe earths iceand the environmental policies that aim to protect it. Jorge Daniel Taillant discusses the debates and negotiations behind the passing of the worlds first glacier-protection law in the mid-2000s, and reveals the tension between the industry experts, politicians, and glacier conservationists. The book provides the basic environmental science behind glaciers, outlines current and future risks to their preservation, and reveals the intriguing politics behind the debate over glacier policies and laws. Taillant also makes suggestions on what can be done to preserve these crucial sources of fresh water, from both a scientific and policymaking standpoint.
En dramadokumentär som visar livet i en indianstam som sällan tar emot besökare. Bisse Falk har skrivit den spännande historien och Bengt Arne Runnerström, som under de senaste 25 åren har fått besöka Iku-folket flera gånger, har tagit bilderna.
11-åriga Dunawi tillhör Iku-folket, en indianstam som bor i en enslig dal i Colombia. Här finns inga moderna apparater som datorer, teve eller kylskåp. Man lever i och av naturen tillsammans med sina djur. En dag händer något ovanligt: turister kommer på besök till byn! Dunawi och hennes syster blir bjudna på kex, plastförpackningen slänger de på marken. Dagen efter är Dunawis älskade gris sjuk. Tänk om den ätit plasten från kexpaketet? Förtvivlat förstår Dunawi att det är hennes fel och att hon måste be Moder Jord om hjälp för att rädda grisen. »Snälla Moder Jord«, säger hon. »Hjälp våra tankar att alltid vara rädda om Moder Jord. Och låt grisen bli frisk igen.«
In this evocative and affectionate memoir, Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith, the last surviving child of Joe and Rose Kennedy, offers an intimate and illuminating look at a time long ago when she and her siblings, guided by their parents, laughed and learned a great deal under one roof. Prompted by interesting tidbits in the newspaper, Rose and Joe Kennedy would pose questions to their nine children at the dinner table. "Where could Amelia Earhart have gone?" "How would you address this horrible drought?" "What would you do about the troop movements in Europe?" It was a nightly custom that helped shape the Kennedys into who they would become. Before Joe and Rose's children emerged as leaders on the world stage, they were a loving circle of brothers and sisters who played football, swam, read, and pursued their interests. They were children inspired by parents who instilled in them a strong work ethic, deep love of country, and intense appreciation for the sacrifices their ancestors made to come to America."No whining in this house!" was their father's regular refrain. It was his way of reminding them not to complain, to be grateful for what they had, and to give back.
In her remarkable memoir, Kennedy Smith-the last surviving sibling-revisits this singular time in their lives. Filled with fascinating anecdotes and vignettes, and illustrated with dozens of family pictures, The Nine of Us vividly depicts this large, close-knit family during a different time in American history. Kennedy Smith offers indelible, elegantly rendered portraits of her larger-than-life siblings and her parents. "They knew how to cure our hurts, bind our wounds, listen to our woes, and help us enjoy life," she writes. "We were lucky children indeed."
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Probst sparks a blissful mind-body connection as her "sexy, satisfying" (Kirkus Reviews) new series continues! She's an expert in helping others de-stress, but Arilyn Meadows is running on fumes. Along with her job counseling singles seeking soul mates at the Kinnections agency in Verily, New York, she's a yoga teacher, animal shelter volunteer, anger management therapist, and helping hand to her beloved grandfather. No time to find Mr. Right--but after discovering her yogi boyfriend in a compromising asana, Arilyn would rather dog-sit for her honeymooning friend Kate than risk her heart on another downward dog. And when police officer Stone Petty--radiating masculinity and bad-boy attitude--is sent to her for mandatory lessons in cooling off when the job gets too hot, Arilyn vows to ignore his seductive glances and sexy grin. But there's no halting their sizzling flirtation--a red-hot, high-speed chase that's breaking all the limits.
I vår moderna civilisation har människan fjärmat sig allt mer från sin
ängel. Men förbindelsen är inte helt bruten och den kan förstärkas och
levandegöras genom människans ansträngningar. För ängeln är människans
ständiga följeslagare. Den överblickar hennes öde, medverkar i planen för
hennes liv, bistår henne i prövningar och svårigheter och ställer olika
framtidsmöjligheter i hennes väg. - "Den här boken närmar sig änglar
utifrån ett andligt, historiesocialt synsätt".
