Summary

From an author passionate about reconnecting both adults and children with nature, The Woodland Book aims to show anyone with an interest in nature and the great outdoors how to make the most of the unique environments provided by a canopy of trees. Packed with  fascinating facts about woodlands  including ancient rituals and the wildlife and flora that make it  special. You'll learn how to identify different kinds of woodland, assess the age of a tree from a stump, recognise the birds that nest in the canopy by their song and meet other creatures such as bats, badgers and even the odd wild boar. Other activities include learning ancient  woodland arts such as coppicing, searching for woodland fruits and  building your own shelter and mythical 'green man'.  
 
Perfect for adults and children who enjoy climbing, investigating, den building, camping and generally having fun, this book will encourage readers to have fun with nature.

    Three-time New York Times bestselling author Dan Ariely teams up with legendary The New Yorker cartoonist William Haefeli to present an expanded, illustrated collection of his immensely popularWall Street Journal advice column, “Ask Ariely”. 
    Behavioral economist Dan Ariely revolutionized the way we think about ourselves, our minds, and our actions in his books Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, and The Honest Truth about Dishonesty. Ariely applies this scientific analysis of the human condition in his “Ask Ariely” Q & A column in the Wall Street Journal, in which he responds to readers who write in with personal conundrums ranging from the serious to the curious:    What can you do to stay calm when you’re playing the volatile stock market?    What’s the best way to get someone to stop smoking?    How can you maximize the return on your investment at an all-you-can-eat buffet?    Is it possible to put a price on the human soul?    Can you ever rationally justify spending thousands of dollars on a Rolex? 
    In Ask Ariely, a broad variety of economic, ethical, and emotional dilemmas are explored and addressed through text and images. Using their trademark insight and wit, Ariely and Haefeli help us reflect on how we can reason our way through external and internal challenges.  Readers will laugh, learn, and most importantly gain a new perspective on how to deal with the inevitable problems that plague our daily life.

  • The Health Gap - The Challenge of an Unequal World - cover

    The Health Gap - The Challenge...

    In Baltimore's inner-city neighborhood of Upton/Druid Heights, a man's life expectancy is sixty-three; not far away, in the Greater Roland Park/Poplar neighborhood, life expectancy is eighty-three. The same twenty-year avoidable disparity exists in the Calton and Lenzie neighborhoods of Glasgow, and in other cities around the world. 
     
    In Sierra Leone, one in 21 fifteen-year-old women will die in her fertile years of a maternal-related cause; in Italy, the figure is one in 17,100; but in the United States, which spends more on healthcare than any other country in the world, it is one in 1,800. Why? 
     
    Dramatic differences in health are not a simple matter of rich and poor; poverty alone doesn't drive ill health, but inequality does. Indeed, suicide, heart disease, lung disease, obesity, and diabetes, for example, are all linked to social disadvantage. In every country, people at relative social disadvantage suffer health disadvantage and shorter lives. Within countries, the higher the social status of individuals, the better their health. These health inequalities defy the usual explanations. Conventional approaches to improving health have emphasized access to technical solutions and changes in the behavior of individuals, but these methods only go so far. What really makes a difference is creating the conditions for people to have control over their lives, to have the power to live as they want. Empowerment is the key to reducing health inequality and thereby improving the health of everyone. Marmot emphasizes that the rate of illness of a society as a whole determines how well it functions; the greater the health inequity, the greater the dysfunction. 
     
    Marmot underscores that we have the tools and resources materially to improve levels of health for individuals and societies around the world, and that to not do so would be a form of injustice.  Citing powerful examples and startling statistics ("young men in the U.S. have less chance of surviving to sixty than young men in forty-nine other countriesÂ??), The Health Gap presents compelling evidence for a radical change in the way we think about health and indeed society, and inspires us to address the societal imbalances in power, money, and resources that work against health equity.

    Of the many health and wellness therapies to originate from the orient, Zen Shiatsu is maybe one of the minimal comprehended. Acupuncture has actually been exercised for numerous years in the West, however Zen Shiatsu considerably less so.           Both systems act on the the energy moving in stations, or 'meridians' in the human organism. Centuries past, Japanese experts understood that the circulation of life force can also be thrilled or obstructed by outside excitement, either using needles (acupressure) or by the finger as well as different other parts of the body (called shiatsu).           By the method, reflexology (massage of the feet) is carefully associated to the method of shiatsu for the physical body, and also distinctive parts of the foot correspond to distinct areas and body organs of the physical body. In the 3 therapies, shiatsu, reflexology and also acupuncture, needles or direct bodily pressure is used to either rise or minimize the flow of energy with certain components of the physical body, which has the outcome of balancing the body's energy.
