Summary

Water is in everything, connecting us all in one way or another, including our family’s wealth and health. But here’s the problem: water’s value went missing from the economy when the EPA came on the scene in the 1970s. The government gave water a much higher value, but it never disclosed that value to the American people. As a result, we have experienced water inflation ever since. Over time that hidden inflation placed a new burden on the financial dreams of the nation. The only way to close that gap and mitigate the rising seas and shrinking freshwater supplies is to put water back in our money. Ultimately we only have two choices on how the price of water will rise in our future: on our terms or someone else’s. Will we invest in our children and grandchildren through water, or pay tolls to corporations for it? Waconomics offers domestic and global solutions for citizens, corporations, and governments alike. We can save the American dream with water!  
PROMISE
Every dollar that Waconomics returns in profit directly goes to Water M. Mission, a nonprofit that stands up for water—that believes in World Water Day, every day! One hundred percent is allocated into a philanthropic water mutual fund to be used for effective projects and innovative water solutions around the globe. WM Mission was created to educate the fortunate, provide quality water for every nation and tribe, and use water as a catalyst for worldwide economic liberation.

    Our cells harbor many secrets to a long and healthy life; there is extensive medical research to debunk the mysteries of our genes, but with all DNA sequencing and the genome project database, we do not know yet how the identification of DNA strands can be assimilated into the body to have any effect on improving human life. Any attempt to explain what DNA is or what it does is intimidating to the nonprofessional. My treatment of this topic “Debugging Human DNA” does not refer to research in biology labs and stem cells studies, but rather I present a technique to debug DNA inside the human body. DNA is no different than the computer binary language; similarities exist between the two languages. DNA is not just a code but also a conducting circuit; the helix positive-negative polarity, allow a two-way communication from point A in the brain to point B anywhere in the body; this can only be achieved electrically.

    We stand on the brink of technological advancements that could change everything we know about human life. But will this make us superhuman, as many hope, or could our drive for progress actually lead to our own destruction?
     
    Yuval Noah Harari believes it could go either way: our ever-growing scientific knowledge certainly has the potential to give us incredible, even "godlike" abilities, but in striving for this, we might come close to losing the very things that make us human. Homo Deus examines both the risks and the potential rewards of this journey and offers compelling visions of humanity's possible futures.   
     
    You will learn: 
     
    ·How technology has helped us overcome many of the obstacles that have traditionally threatened human life
     
    ·How "curing" death might be humanity's next big challenge
     
    ·How our efforts to technologically enhance our lives might render human beings obsolete.

    This international bestseller that changed the way we look at wolves “opens new horizons in understanding animal nature and intelligence” (Newsday).  In 1948, Farley Mowat landed in the far north of Manitoba, Canada, a young biologist sent to investigate the region’s dwindling population of caribou. Many people thought that the caribous’ conspicuous decline had been caused by the tundra’s most notorious predator: the wolf. Alone among the howling canine packs, Mowat expected to find the bloodthirsty beasts of popular conception. Instead, over the course of a summer spent observing the powerful animals, Mowat discovered an animal species with a remarkable capacity for loyalty, virtue, and playfulness.   Praised for its humor and engrossing narrative, Never Cry Wolf describes a group of wolves whose interactions and behaviors seem strikingly similar to our own. Mowat humanizes these animals that have long been demonized, turning the widespread narrative of the “savage wolf” on its head and inspiring many governments to enact protective legislation for the North’s most mysterious creature.

    Natural Aphrodisiacs - Myth or...

    The widespread use of effective prescription drugs for erectile dysfunction has helped advance societys acceptance of talking about sexual dysfunction for both men and women.  As the authors elegantly describe, sexual dysfunction and attempts at treating it have been around for as long as sexuality itself.  Its no surprise that history is full of myths about aphrodisiacs.  Despite all the advances we have made in medicine, the myth of the aphrodisiacs is as powerful as ever.  However, sexual dysfunction is very often a complex problem requiring careful, thoughtful and educated treatment.  Rarely is there quick natural fix.  Consumers need to do their homework before buying into the claims of companies selling natural aphrodisiacs.  This book is an excellent resource for those seeking to educate themselves about the history, effectiveness, safety and future of natural aphrodisiacs.  Nevertheless, the information contained within the text is also important and valuable for both sides of the patient-physician equation in the treatment of sexual dysfunction.

    The authors have expressed very clearly the various merits and demerits of natural aphrodisiac products on the market.  Discussion on the future prospects of plant used as aphrodisiacs is excellent information for the phytochemists who are interested to pursue research limitations in the area of existing natural aphrodisiacs and their standardizations is consistent with the rising interest of global consumers in green environment.  A special effort in creating the drawings of the natural products for enabling readers to identify the natural products is phenomenal.  I recommend this book to the lovers of natural products without any hesitation.  I hope that manufacturers, scholars and consumers of natural aphrodisiac products will take advantage of this document in years to come.

    The latest research on herbal aphrodisiacs cited by the authors is very impressive.  The appropriate quotations at the beginning of each chapter are very fascinating.  It is a comprehensive compendium on natural aphrodisiacs comprising their origin, myth, chemistry, pharmacology, risk and romance.  Hand drawings of the plants are excellent and depict their morphological characteristics that can be helpful in identifying them.  The book is actually a ready reckoner for physicians, pharmacist, or herbalists for guiding the patients who are incorporating natural products in their daily regime.
