Summary

A vital guide to the frontlines of our fight against climate change and the scientific and technological innovations that will revolutionize the world. The United States’ accelerated plans to combat the existential threat of climate change finally give reason to hope. In Our Livable World, research specialist and author Marc Schaus explores the incredible new green innovations in science and engineering that can allow us to avoid the worst repercussions of global warming as we work to usher in a sustainable, livable world. To beat a challenge the size of climate change, our solutions will have to be ambitious: solar thermal cells capable of storing energy long after the sun goes down, “smart highways” designed to charge your vehicle as you drive, indoor vertical farms automated to maximize crop growth with no pesticides, bioluminescent vines ready to one day replace our streetlights, jet fuel created from landfill trash—and next-generation carbon capture techniques to remove the emissions we have already released over the past several decades. Far from the geoengineering schemes of cli-fi action thrillers, real solutions are being developed, right this moment. Our Livable World features interviews with the innovators, real talk on the revolutionary technology, and a clear picture of a cleaner planet in the future. “An important book that shows the dawn of a new kind of environmental movement―an age where we invest in deeply creative and fascinating technical solutions that work in harmony with the Earth. Marc Schaus lays out the exciting future of environmental innovation before us.” —Katie Patrick, author of How to Save the World

    The “fascinating [and] informative” biography of a pioneering American computer scientist and his mysterious death during the Cold War (The Scotsman, UK). 
     
    MIT professor Dudley Allen Buck was a brilliant young scientist on the cusp of fame and fortune when he died of mysterious causes in 1959. His latest invention, the Cryotron, was an early form of microchip that would have greatly advance ballistic missile technology. Shortly before Dudley’s death, he was visited by a group of Soviet computer experts. On the day that he died from a sudden bout of pneumonia, a close colleague of his was also found dead from similar causes. Some wonder if their deaths were linked. 
     
    Dudley’s son Douglas was never satisfied with the explanation of his father’s death. He’s spent more than twenty years investigating it, acquiring his father’s lab books, diaries, correspondence, research papers and patent filings. Armed with this research, Douglas and award-winning journalist Iain Dey tell the story of Dudley’s life and groundbreaking work.  
     
    The Cryotron Files is at once a gripping history of America’s Cold War era computer scientists, the dramatic personal story of Dudley Buck, and an eye-opening investigation into his mysterious death.

    Rewire Your Mindset And Get Fast Results With Hypnosis! 
     
    The advantages of hypnosis therapy are widespread. A lot of individuals report positive changes with hypnosis and it's recognized as a valid type of holistic alternative medicine.  
     
    Hypnosis is a popular technique utilized for weight loss, overcoming addiction, healing, achieving goals, relaxation and stress relief. It's utilized to get rid of undesired behaviors and beliefs and to manifest new desires and achieve goals in life. 
      
    If you wish to influence your subconscious mind to accept new programming for positive alterations hypnosis is an effective technique for doing that. 
     
    Among the chief advantages of hypnosis is that when you in a hypnotic state brain wave frequencies decelerate. You center or focus your awareness and you're actually much more aware than usual. A state of centered awareness almost feels as though you're more of an observer of thought and images rather than a part of them. This allows you to bypass the "gatekeepers" at the entrance to the subconscious and superconscious so you are able to access these levels of consciousness directly, and the brain is much more receptive to suggestion. 
     
    The unconscious, or subconscious may then be reprogrammed so it lets go of old patterns, beliefs and feelings that no longer serve you. They may be replaced with suggestions that are favorable and affirming. The superconscious mind may open you into fresh insights and originative ideas.  
     
    A common misperception is that you only have to be hypnotized once to make lasting changes. Occasionally this is the case, but for lasting positive changes, hypnosis suggestions need to be repeated several times till your mind accepts the new programming. 
     
    You'll need to enter hypnosis and listen to your audio multiple times. Don't expect that one session will set up and run your new programs. 
     
    Put this audio on each night before you go to bed and listen to it right before you fall asleep. If you have time also listen to it first thing upon waking. Do this for at least 21 days consistently so that positive change can take affect in your life.
