Summary

This volume contains a collection of articles on pig-keeping, with information on farrowing, parturition, feeding, breeding, taking care of female pigs, and much more besides. Including a wealth of information fundamental to the successful keeping of pigs, this volume will be of considerable value to the novice pig farmer, and will also appeal to existing farmers looking to improve their farming practice. Although old, much of the information contained herein is timeless, and will be of as much use to the modern reader as it was when these works were originally published. The articles of this book include: 'Pigs and Their Management'; 'How to Treat Pig Ailments'; 'Pig Keeping that Pays – A Practical Handbook to the Profitable Breeding and Management of the Pig'; 'The Book of the Pig – Its Selection, Breeding, Feeding, and Management'... and more. We are proudly publishing this vintage text, now complete with a specially-commissioned introduction on pig farming.

    Think Little - Essays

    The first in the new Counterpoints series, Think Little is an evergreen, ever-urgent, and now pocket-sized argument for focused and inclusive climate change activism
    Designed and priced for point-of-sale, the Counterpoints series will feature essays, poems, and stories from Wendell Berry, Gary Snyder, Mary Robison, Betty Fussell, MFK Fisher, and many more
    Berry argues that environmental activism and policy change cannot only be a public, large-scale, corporate- and organization-led; instead, changes must happen at the person, individual, and community levels in order for our attempts to slow climate change to be successful. Just as the Civil Rights movement had to become personal, had to be adopted in homes and communities across the country in order to gain momentum and critical mass, so too does environmental activism
    Berry also reminds us that the forces that would exploit people based on their race, gender, and socioeconomic status are the same forces that are content to exploit the earth for its natural resources

    Imagining the Future of Climate...

    From the 1960s to the present, activists, artists, and science fiction writers have imagined the consequences of climate change and its impacts on our future. Authors such as Octavia Butler and Leslie Marmon Silko, movie directors such as Bong Joon-Ho, and creators of digital media such as the makers of the Maori web series Anamata Future News have all envisioned future worlds during and after environmental collapse, engaging audiences to think about the earth’s sustainability. As public awareness of climate change has grown, so has the popularity of works of climate fiction that connect science with activism. Today, real-world social movements helmed by Indigenous people and people of color are leading the way against the greatest threat to our environment: the fossil fuel industry. Their stories and movements—in the real world and through science fiction—help us all better understand the relationship between activism and culture, and how both can be valuable tools in creating our future. Imagining the Future of Climate Change introduces readers to the history and most significant flashpoints in climate justice through speculative fictions and social movements, exploring post-disaster possibilities and the art of world-making.

    Listening to the Bees is a collaborative exploration by two writers to illuminate the most profound human questions: Who are we? Who do we want to be in the world?
     
    Through the distinct but complementary lenses of science and poetry, Mark Winston and Renée Saklikar reflect on the tension of being an individual living in a society, and about the devastation wrought by overly intensive management of agricultural and urban habitats.
     
    Listening to the Bees takes readers into the laboratory and out to the field, into the worlds of scientists and beekeepers, and to meetings where the research community intersects with government policy and business. The result is an insiders’ view of the way research is conducted—its brilliant potential and its flaws—along with the personal insights and remarkable personalities experienced over a forty-year career that parallels the rise of industrial agriculture.

    Are you a Project Manager? 
    Are you ready to master the agile approach to management? 
    There's a lot to consider when you start down the road to managing someone's expectations and Agile Management: The Keys to Success aims to help you along the way, using vast experience, gained over decades, to make sure you are best positioned to deliver the excellence anticipated. 
    With Agile Management, you will find a book which guides you towards your goal along with a variety of routes, rather than making you stick to the main road, delivering chapters on: 
    Understanding the process 
    Recognising the importance of individuals and interactions 
    How to work with customers in a fluid environment 
    Learning to respond to change 
    The value of software 
    And more… 
    Agile is not a religion and isn't meant to be followed strictly. Nor is it a cure-all or a formula for success, because every project is different and each comes with its own set of problems, expectations and potential outcomes. 
    Simply put, Agile is a mindset which you must develop, nurture and cultivate at the right time. 
    Agile Management can help you achieve that.
