Summary

Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not So Wild) Places shows readers how to find and prepare more than five hundred different plants for nutrition and better health. It includes information on common plants such as mullein (a tea made from the leaves and flowers suppresses a cough), stinging nettle (steam the leaves and you have a tasty dish rich in iron), cattail (cooked stalks taste similar to corn and are rich in protein), and wild apricots (an infusion made with the leaves is good for stomach aches and digestive disorders).  
More than 260 detailed line drawings help readers identify a wide range of plants -- many of which are suited for cooking by following the more than thirty recipes included in this book. There are literally hundreds of plants readily available underfoot waiting to be harvested and used either as food or as a potential therapeutic. This book is both a field guide to nature's bounty and a source of intriguing information about the plants that surround us.

    Advance Praise"What a treasure house is this book! Robots, space aliens, Einstein, black holes, time travel--these themes, and much more, from Stephen King's amazing books are opened up like toy chests. It's tremendous fun, entirely educational, and a great tribute to King."--Peter Straub"A fun, fun read."--F. Paul Wilson"The Science of Stephen King appeals to both the scientist and the longtimereader of Stephen King in me. Gresh and Weinberg use concepts from King's fiction as launching pads for in-depth explorations of concepts as diverse as ESP, pyrokinesis, time travel, artificial intelligence, quantum chemistry, alternate realities, string theory, and the possibility that we'll be visited by aliens or that we'll face a global pandemic. Much of what Stephen King writes about in his novels is closer to reality than you might think."--Bev Vincent, Ph.D., author of The Road to the Dark Tower"A superb overview of King's use of scientific concepts in his stories. And considering all the scary talk lately about pandemic flu, their chapter on The Stand is timely as hell."--Stephen Spignesi, author of The Complete Stephen King Encyclopedia"Just as Sagan and Asimov popularized science to the masses by making itentertaining and informative, so too do Gresh and Weinberg. Compulsively readable and thought-provoking."--George Beahm, author of The Stephen King Companion

    Los temas discutidos en este libro, traducido al inglés por el australiano Kieran Tapsell, forman parte de una disciplina revolucionaria conocida como psicología evolutiva, que se ha convertido en la herramienta más poderosa descubierta por el ser humano para entenderse a sí mismo. Gran parte del conocimiento revelado por la ciencia humana se explica como resultado del proceso evolutivo, tomando como premisa la teoría de que la mayoría de los deseos, impulsos, intereses y facultades mentales humanas fueron diseñadas por la evolución de las especies. Este nuevo enfoque nos permite sintetizar un grupo ya establecido de descubrimientos, que provienen de diversas disciplinas como genética, evolución, antropología, psicología, neurología y epistemología. De esta manera es posible explicar una parte importante del comportamiento humano desde un solo principio unificado: la búsqueda directa o indirecta de una mayor eficacia reproductiva. Con este trabajo, de fácil lectura para el público general, el autor completa un ciclo de temas que comenzó con el libro Del Big Bang al homo sapiens (2004), publicado en español por Villegas Editores.

    I wrote How to make Money with Money for all beginning aspiring self-directed investors and traders who are just getting their head around doing the day trading and swing trading business. Everyone has their own ideas of what they think day trading and swing trading are and what it can do for them. How to make Money with Money is for people who want to start their own business and become investors and traders in today’s financial markets, but have zero experience and are looking for the best quality information to get them started.
    
    Many of the things I tell brand new investors and traders in all my books may sound like I am a broken record and some things you read may sound repetitive. I do that for a specific reason because much of what trading is about is doing those same actions over and over again repetitively to make money the same way every day. It is the only way professional traders do it and how they develop their edge to win in the live markets against the best market participants in the world.
    
    The learning curve in this business and it is a business can be long, brutal and very very expensive if you learn the wrong way. How to make Money with Money aims to tell you how do study it the right way the first time and greatly reduce that long learning curve by showing you what the market is really made of and who are actually in control of it and when they are in control of it. When you have this information and can see it on a live price chart in real time and pull the trigger without hesitation you can make a lot of damn money!
    
    Brand new traders all make the same mistakes over and over because they don‘t know any better, now you do. They do what everyone else is doing and study what everyone else is studying thus they have the same results and failures as everyone else. Don’t be that trader! If you can just take the time to read this information in this book, let it sink in and then continue on your educational journey you will have done yourself a huge favor and also begun to give yourself the needed edge to succeed in this business.
    
    When you are done reading How to make Money with Money you will have an excellent basic explanation of what and what not to do before you even study anything or do any kind of education. The information in this book will put you on the fast track to becoming a successful self-directed investor and trader with very little money invested other than the cost of How to make Money with Money.

    An investigation of the history and demise of the most controversial North American energy infrastructure project. 
     
    
    
    In 2015, President Barack Obama denied approval for TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline, which would have carried crude oil from the Canadian oil sands to the U.S. Gulf Coast, providing great economic benefit to Canada. Over seven years of regulatory process, environmental activism, and media attention, the project had become infamous, a cause célèbre for North America’s ENGO movement and a test of Obama’s bona fides in the face of global climate change risk. 
     
    
    
    As one of TransCanada’s senior executive group, Dennis McConaghy provides an insider’s perspective of Keystone XL’s history and demise. How did this routine infrastructure acquire iconic status? Why couldn’t government and industry find some accommodation to salvage the project? And most importantly, what must Canada learn from Keystone XL’s demise? Can the country find common ground between economic value and credible carbon policy?

Jim has no affiliation with any links included in the book and there are no up-sells or ongoing costs for this method, his custom indicators, template etc. Also worthy of mention is that this Method can be used with any other financial instrument that your MT4 platform offers.
