    The pioneering environmental activist recounts his decades-long fight for our planet through the NDRC—with a foreword by Robert Redford. 
     
    In 1970, John H. Adams was fed up with the levels of pollution in New York City. How could he raise children in a place where layers of soot covered the windows? Working as a lawyer for the U.S. Attorney’s office, he and fellow lawyers teamed up to form Natural Resources Defense Council, a grassroots environmental advocacy group.  
     
    Over the years, NDRC has grown into an international powerhouse with 1.2 million members and a staff of scientists and lawyers whose mission is to safeguard the planet. This inspiring memoir tells the story of the NRDC and the environmental movement it sparked.

    Catriona MacGregor understands how easy it is to become exhausted by your schedule, your to-do list, and the gazillion emails in your inbox-and it's also easy to forget there's a world of renewal just outside your door, and a host of plants and animals available to help you find your way back to your peace, your joy, your roots. Indeed, she says, the planet itself resonates with your most peaceful nature, and regaining a connection with the natural world is the surest way to rediscover the truest part of yourself.

    Essays by a Whiting Award winner: “Like a descendant of Lewis Carroll and Emily Dickinson . . . one of the most exciting and original writers in America.” —Yiyun Li, author of Must I Go 
     
    Things That Are takes jellyfish, fainting goats, and imperturbable caterpillars as just a few of its many inspirations. In a series of essays that progress from the tiniest earth dwellers to the most far-flung celestial bodies—considering the similarity of gods to donkeys, the inexorability of love and vines, the relations of exploding stars to exploding sea cucumbers—Amy Leach rekindles a vital communion with the wild world, dormant for far too long. Things That Are is not specifically of the animal, the human, or the phenomenal; it is a book of wonder, one the reader cannot help but leave with their perceptions both expanded and confounded in delightful ways. 
     
    This debut collection comes from a writer whose accolades precede her: a Whiting Award, a Rona Jaffe Award, a Best American Essays selection, and a Pushcart Prize, all received before her first book-length publication. Things That Are marks the debut of an entirely new brand of nonfiction writer, in a mode like that of Ander Monson, John D’Agata, and Eula Biss, but a new sort of beast entirely its own. 
     
    “Explores fantastical and curious subjects pertaining to natural phenomena . . . for those interested in looking at the natural world through the lens of a fairy tale, this is a bonbon of a book.” —Kirkus Reviews

    Raising costs, ever-increasing regulatory hurdles, and mounting difficulties in finding the next blockbuster drug are just a few of the challenges Big Pharma currently has to face for its research and development process, the heart of its risky business. 
    
    Big Data claims to be full of insights that Big Pharma need to find a way of harvesting, which could lead to new compounds. Academics, Big Data start-ups, and pharmaceutical companies have focused their research efforts on analytic tools and data technologies to store, collect, analyse, and extract these insights from massive data sets. However, the key question is whether the Big Data hype really does have the claimed accelerating effect on the complex research and development process or if it actually creates another hurdle for Big Pharma innovation.
    
    Malena Johannes' timely book sheds light on this question by examining the top 5 pharmaceutical companies and provides an overview on the status quo of Big Data applications within the pharmaceutical industry.

    This program is read by the author.Some people reject the fact, overwhelmingly supported by scientists, that our planet is warming because of human activity. But do those of us who accept the reality of human-caused climate change truly believe it? If we did, surely we would be roused to act on what we know. Will future generations distinguish between those who didn’t believe in the science of global warming and those who said they accepted the science but failed to change their lives in response?In We Are the Weather, Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal, and urgent new way. The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves — with our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. We have, he reveals, turned our planet into a farm for growing animal products, and the consequences are catastrophic. Only collective action will save our home and way of life. And it all starts with what we eat — and don’t eat — for breakfast.

    Join one of the world’s most influential psychologists in exploring the transformative powers of positivity. The Dalai Lama declared that “the purpose of our lives is to be happy.” Indeed, prioritizing positivity can boost your health and well-being in powerful ways. And when positivity resonates between you and others, it strengthens your relationships and communities, making them kinder and more compassionate, more supportive of everyone’s health and well-being. In this remarkable 15-lecture audio course, Dr. Barbara Fredrickson—celebrated professor, best-selling author, TED Talk Celebrity, and leading positive psychology expert—shows you how to enhance your awareness of fleeting states of emotional uplift to help balance your brain’s built-in bias toward the negative. You’ll learn how even subtle positive emotions – like enjoyment, gratitude, serenity, and awe – can expand your awareness and ignite upward spirals of growth within you. Dr. Fredrickson, recipient of the Tang Prize for Achievements in Psychology, is the author of Positivity, Love 2.0, and more than 130 peer-reviewed articles in the field of positive psychology. Through her exceptional lectures, you will learn to challenge the reflexive habit of seeing emotions as “belonging” to individuals (e.g., your joy, her anger). You’ll find that emotions, especially positive emotions, can often more accurately be described as “belonging” to the collective, and see how this resonance of positivity might well be the most elemental building block of love.This course is part of the Learn25 collection.
