Summary

This second volume of Edible Wild Plants adds 18 additional plants, their relatives, and look-a-likes, in 15 plant chapters, to the overall collection of plants covered between the two volumes in The Wild Food Adventure Series. This book makes it delightfully exciting to learn about and experiment with known wild foods that will be useful to all, from beginners to advanced foragers. This book features plants in five flavor categories?foundation, tart, pungent or peppery, bitter, and distinctive & sweet. Organizing this way helps readers use the plants in pleasing and predictable ways. Imagine frequently including cattail, nettles, pokeweed, marsh mallow, daylily, wild radish, and everlasting pea in your meal planning knowing that you acquired these plants from your own foraging adventures. There is also a section devoted to identifying and knowing poison hemlock, often confused with wild carrot in certain stages of development. John Kallas and his Wild Food Adventure book series are here to help you learn quickly, process intelligently, and genuinely enjoy what you are eating.

    The Beginning and the End of Everything is the whole story as we currently understand it — from nothing, to the birth of our universe, to its ultimate fate. Authoritative and engaging, Paul Parsons takes us on a roller-coaster ride through billions of light-years to tell the story of the big bang, from birth to death.13.8 billion years ago, something incredible happened. Matter, energy, space and time all suddenly burst into existence in a cataclysmic event that’s come to be known as the big bang. It was the birth of our universe. What started life smaller than the tiniest subatomic particle is now unimaginably vast and plays home to trillions of galaxies. The formulation of the big bang theory is a story that combines some of the most far-reaching concepts in fundamental physics with equally profound observations of the cosmos.From our realisation that we are on a planet orbiting a star in one of many galaxies, to the discovery that our universe is expanding, to the groundbreaking theories of Einstein that laid the groundwork for the big bang cosmology of today — as each new discovery deepens our understanding of the origins of our universe, a clearer picture is forming of how it will all end. Will we ultimately burn out or fade away? Could the end simply signal a new beginning, as the universe rebounds into a fresh expanding phase? And was our big bang just one of many, making our cosmos only a small part of a sprawling multiverse of parallel universes?

    Reader Come Home - The Reading...

    From the author of Proust and the Squid, a lively, ambitious, and deeply informative epistolary book that considers the future of the reading brain and our capacity for critical thinking, empathy, and reflection as we become increasingly dependent on digital technologies. 
    A decade ago, Maryanne Wolf’s Proust and the Squid revealed what we know about how the brain learns to read and how reading changes the way we think and feel. Since then, the ways we process written language have changed dramatically with many concerned about both their own changes and that of children. New research on the reading brain chronicles these changes in the brains of children and adults as they learn to read while immersed in a digitally dominated medium. 
    Drawing deeply on this research, this book comprises a series of letters Wolf writes to us—her beloved readers—to describe her concerns and her hopes about what is happening to the reading brain as it unavoidably changes to adapt to digital mediums. Wolf raises difficult questions, including:Will children learn to incorporate the full range of ""deep reading"" processes that are at the core of the expert reading brain?Will the mix of a seemingly infinite set of distractions for children’s attention and their quick access to immediate, voluminous information alter their ability to think for themselves?With information at their fingertips, will the next generation learn to build their own storehouse of knowledge, which could impede the ability to make analogies and draw inferences from what they know?Will all these influences, in turn, change the formation in children and the use in adults of ""slower"" cognitive processes like critical thinking, personal reflection, imagination, and empathy that comprise deep reading and that influence both how we think and how we live our lives?Will the chain of digital influences ultimately influence the use of the critical analytical and empathic capacities necessary for a democratic society?How can we preserve deep reading processes in future iterations of the reading brain?Who are the ""good readers"" of every epoch? 
    Concerns about attention span, critical reasoning, and over-reliance on technology are never just about children—Wolf herself has found that, though she is a reading expert, her ability to read deeply has been impacted as she has become, inevitably, increasingly dependent on screens. 
    Wolf draws on neuroscience, literature, education, technology, and philosophy and blends historical, literary, and scientific facts with down-to-earth examples and warm anecdotes to illuminate complex ideas that culminate in a proposal for a biliterate reading brain. Provocative and intriguing, Reader, Come Home is a roadmap that provides a cautionary but hopeful perspective on the impact of technology on our brains and our most essential intellectual capacities—and what this could mean for our future.

    In this “deeply insightful” and “heart warming” memoir, an animal rescuer reveals “profound lessons” learned while living on an animal sanctuary (Jane Goodall). 
     
    What the Animals Taught Me is a collection of stories about rescued farm animals in a shelter in Sonoma County, California, and what these animals can teach us. Each story illuminates how animals can help us see and embrace others as they truly are and reconnect us with the natural world. 
     
    Wishing to escape the urban rat race, freelance writer and editor Stephanie Marohn moved to rural northern California in 1993. Life was sweet. She was a busy freelancer. In return for reduced rent, she fed and cared for two horses and a donkey. Her life was full. And then, more farm animals started to appear: a miniature white horse, a donkey, sheep, chickens, followed by deer and other wildlife. Each one needed sanctuary either from abuse, physical injury, or neglect. Marohn took each animal in and gradually turned her ten-acre spread into an animal sanctuary. A deeply inspiring collection, What the Animals Taught Me awakens our hearts and reminds us that our best life teachers sometimes come covered in fur. 
     
    “One of the best books I have ever read on the way animals open our hearts and teach us unforgettable lessons about life.” —Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism and The Direct Path

    In this book the theory of multiverses, ancient cultures which came from other dimensions, dimensional shifting testimonies, and a lot more are included for your review and discussion. 
    The Multiverse was proposed long ago by the ancient Greeks. In modern times this subject has become very active among physicists. There is also some real modern evidence that the Multiverse exists. 
    My curiosity about alternative dimensions is the result of research for my first book on ancient Ireland which recorded that the Tutha Da Dannan (forebears of the Elves and Druids) who came from “The Otherworld”. 
    I have also collected many testimonies and stories about people who experienced dimensional shifts which appear in this book too. 
    It is also possible that many reports of Bigfoot, Thunderbirds, Dragons, and more all also tied up in the potential reality of the Multiverse. 
    After reading this book you may become convinced that the multiverse really exists and this would explain many of the strange events in our lives. The world we live in is a much stranger place than most of us would believe.
