Summary

"It’s been a lifelong, ever-expanding journey, with many big ?sh and faraway waters and dramatic moments . . . and yet I don’t think any of those moments or any of those places or ?sh has thrilled me any more than seeing the twitch of my ?y line where it entered the muddy waters of my backyard pond . . .” In this collection of ?y-?shing stories from acclaimed novelist and outdoor writer William G. Tapply, the natural appeal of ?y ?shing comes to life. Each story in Every Day Was Special was previously published in Tapply’s back-page column, ?Reading the Currents” in American Angler, or in Gray’s Sporting Journal, or in Field & Stream. From ?Dam It” to ?First Light” to ?When Trout Get Antsy,” these thirty re-readable pieces are unique in their own ways, and yet, all are classic Tapply. These writings serve as testament to the thrill of ?shing, the inimitable energy of casting at daybreak, and the innocence of streamside summers.

    “An in-depth, well-researched, and thoughtful exploration of the ‘fat boom’ in America.” —TheBoston Globe Low carb, high protein, raw foods . . . despite our seemingly endless obsession with fad diets, the startling truth is that six out of ten Americans are overweight or obese. In Fat Land, award-winning nutrition and health journalist Greg Critser examines the facts and societal factors behind the sensational headlines, taking on everything from supersize to Super Mario, high-fructose corn syrup to the high costs of physical education.   With a sharp eye and even sharper tongue, Critser examines why pediatricians are now treating conditions rarely seen in children before; why type 2 diabetes is on the rise; the personal struggles of those with weight problems—especially among the poor—and how agribusiness has altered our waistlines.   Praised by the New York Times as “absorbing” and by Newsday as “riveting,” this disarmingly funny, yet truly alarming, exposé stands as an important examination of one of the most pressing medical and social issues in the United States.   “One scary book and a good companion to Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation.” —Seattle Post-Intelligencer

    Blockchain is the new breed of innovation that has already begun to reinvent trade, social and political relationships, and any other form of exchange of value. For once, it's not just a transition, it's a strong trend already in practice. As of this writing, over 40 top financial organizations and many different companies across industries have begun investigating blockchain to minimize transaction costs, speed up transaction time, reduce fraud risk, and remove intermediary or broker services. Some are trying to re-imagine legacy systems and services to take them to a new level and develop new types of service offerings as well. 
    Throughout the book, we will discuss blockchain in more detail. If you are new to blockchain or select only those relevant to you, you can follow through the chapters in the order presented. 
    In the public conversation and in the media, the blockchain has received a lot of attention. Many fans contend that the blockchain has been the best innovation since the Internet emerged. Therefore, a lot of books and articles about the blockchain have been written over the past few years. Nevertheless, if you want to know more about how the blockchain operates, you may be lost in a universe of books that either easily skip over the technical details or highly systematically analyze the underlying technical concepts. The former may leave you unsatisfied because they fail to clarify the technical details necessary to understand and appreciate the blockchain, while the latter may leave you unsatisfied because the knowledge you want to learn is already needed."

    For millennia, trees have offered renewal and inspiration. They have provided for humanity on every level, from spiritual sanctuary to the raw material for our homes, books, and food. In this beautiful and revealing book, National Geographic combines legendary photography with cutting-edge science to illuminate exactly how trees influence the life of planet Earth—from our personal lives to the weather cycle. Beautifully illustrated essays tell the stories of the world's most remarkable trees, from Tane Mahura in New Zealand, the ancient Maori "lord of the forest," to Pando, a single aspen spreading over 100 acres: Earth's largest living thing. You'll also discover how an astronaut carried tree seeds to the moon and back; the reason "microdosing" on tree gas is a sure way to boost your immune system; and why playing in the dirt boosts serotonin, happiness hormone. For nature and science enthusiasts, as well as photography lovers, Into the Forest is a beautiful and edifying gift to give or cherish.

    Modern Chemistry Lavoisier’s results and Atomic Theory provided chemists their first in depth understanding related to the nature of chemical reactions. Another cornerstone which dealt with the inherent property of all matter came a few years later in the form of atomic theory advanced in 1805 by an English schoolteacher, John Dalton. This theory puts forward the theory that matter constitutes of small particles which are named atoms and that chemical changes take place between atoms or groups of atoms. Finally, being equipped with in depth views about the nature of matter and of chemical reactions, chemistry began making rapid strides.
