Summary

At a small farm in Provence, a woman tries to do her part to save the bees—and the planet—in this stirring, entertaining memoir. After a long research trip, Carol Drinkwater is back home with her husband, Michel, on their olive farm in the south of France. She’s overjoyed, but also has something serious on her mind: the ecological threats to their own farm—and countless others. The die-off of honey bees has reached crisis levels globally, and Carol is concerned about the state of their hives. Some farmers and scientists believe urgent change is needed to address agricultural techniques that are destroying the planet. But when Carol joins their chorus, it may put their beloved farm in jeopardy. It’s time for a true commitment—but running an organic farm, the couple soon discovers, is not as simple as it sounds . . .Praise for the Olive Farm series “Vibrant, intoxicating and heartwarming.” —Sunday Express “Spellbinding . . . a must for anyone who dreams of moving to a kinder climate and starting a new life.” —Choice

    Even if they behave as though they were, humans are not the masters of the Earth, but only one of its most irksome residents. From the moment of their arrival, about three hundred thousand years ago—nothing when compared to the history of life on our planet—humans have succeeded in changing the conditions of the planet so drastically as to make it a dangerous place for their own survival. The causes of this reckless behavior are in part inherent in their predatory nature, but they also depend on our total incomprehension of the rules that govern a community of living beings. We behave like children who wreak havoc, unaware of the significance of the things they are playing with. In The Nation of Plants, the most important, widespread, and powerful nation on Earth finally gets to speak. Like attentive parents, plants, after making it possible for us to live, have come to our aid once again, giving us their rules: the first Universal Declaration of Rights of Living Beings written by the plants. A short charter based on the general principles that regulate the common life of plants, it establishes norms applicable to all living beings.

    Starting in the mid-20th century, the idea of "improving" the race and prolonging life began to gain ground, and by the 1990s it materialized in a philosophy called "transhumanism". In the 21st century, the global elites and the World Economic Forum took the initiative to accelerate and order this paradigm shift. Right now, they are working on the acceptance of ideas such as living on Mars or merging the biological, the technological and the physical. It will no longer be about the survival of the fittest, but about the specific design of beings. The position of creation, guidance and control will belong to the race itself, or at least to a part of it.

    As an active Forex, indices and commodities trader since 2002, whilst also coaching new and experienced traders since 2009, Alistair has put together a clear and actionable summary of what's required to make it in the world of online trading. 
    This book focuses on what Alistair describes as his "Four Pillars of Trading". 
    Many traders unknowingly operate outside these four pillars, or at best, only apply some of them to their trading process. This may mean they have some short-lived success, but when the inevitable pressure periods come about and the losing runs hit, if all four pillars in are not in place, the traders results and approach start to unravel. 
    This book is not another trading strategy, or a set of handpicked in the moment hypothetical trade scenarios. Instead it offers a clear and proven applicable trading framework that Alistair effectively uses both with his students and in his own trading.
