´´The Mojave is a big desert and a frightening one. It’s as though nature tested a man for endurance and constancy to prove whether he was good enough to get to California.” - John Steinbeck The Mojave Desert, otherwise known as the ´´High Desert”, is the smallest of the deserts in the North American continent nestled between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, two of the most frequented tourist capitals in the country. That being said, this unassuming, yet mesmerizing, desert is visited by millions each year, with over two million people flocking to Joshua Tree Park alone. This diverse terrain is built on the back of a rich and unique history, be they real or fictitious. The Mojave Desert: The History and Legacy of North America’s Most Famous Desert explores the development of the Mojave from its formative years to the heterogeneous tract of land it is today. It also examines the native tribes who inhabited it and their complex relationships with the foreign explorers who traversed their territories. The book also dives into the desert´s literal golden era and takes a tour through the desert´s fabled Death Valley. You will learn about the Mojave Desert like never before. 1. Language: English.

If you think eating less, skipping meals, drinking fruit juices and protein drinks, and eating non-fat foods is the way to a healthy, slender new you, think again. What if I told you that your favorite fruit could be contributing to your growing waistline and putting you at risk for diabetes and heart disease? Did you know that what you eat can affect your energy, your memory, your mood, and even how you think? Certain foods can even make a child behave poorly and lose focus in school. Many of the health symptoms that Americans are experiencing today could be remedied by a simple solution: Nature´s Diet. Our distant ancestors depended solely on ´´Nature´s kitchen´´ for survival; today our diet is genetically engineered, man-made in a factory, and loaded with harmful chemicals. The result: An epidemic of illnesses like never before seen in human history. Inspired after seeing chronically ill patients every day in his own practice, Dr. Iverson wrote Nature´s Diet realizing he needed to teach people what to do who were so desperate to have their health back. He saw that when someone feeds their body the correct nutrition and detoxifies from chemical waste, they can have amazing improvements in their health. Think this is just another diet book? You´ll be surprised at what you´ll learn. Nature´s Diet is based on living in harmony with Nature and applying the Laws of Science to your own health and healing by following the way animals and our distant ancestors once lived. It takes into account your biochemical individuality; based on genetics, geographic location, and physical activity. The actual diet is tailored to your unique needs based on your current lifestyle. Want just a taste? Here´s what you´ll learn: Whether being a meatarian or a vegetarian is a better option for you Which supplements to choose and why your multi-vitamin may be more of a drug than a nutrient/ 1.

Tomas Espedal, f. 1961 i Bergen, debuterede i 1988 og har udgivet tolv bøger. Nomineret til Nordisk Råds Litteraturpris for Gå og Mod kunsten. Fik i 2010 Kritikerprisen for Mod kunsten og i 2011 Brageprisen for Mod naturen. Mod Naturen er en undersøgelse af arbejdet: fabriksarbejdet, skrivearbejdet og kærlighedsarbejdet. Og en bog om den svære kærlighed mellem en ældre mand og en yngre kvinde. Hvad er naturligt? Og hvorfor drages fortælleren mod det umulige: den umulige kærlighed, bøgerne, myterne, tabuerne? Han læser fortællingen om Abélard og Héloïse, og langsomt går det op for ham, at han selv lever mod naturen. Please note: This audiobook is in Danish. 1. Danish.

Steeped in the faith tradition of the American Transcendentalists (the majority of whom, like Emerson, were Unitarian ministers), the author´s own spiritual life was likewise grounded and guided by nature. So of course she said yes to a career in interim ministry that would require her to relocate every summer. What would each new landscape, from Nevada to Vermont to Colorado to Arizona to South Carolina to Maine, have to teach her spirit? After all, there was more to learn from nature than could be found in New England, wasn´t there? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stef P. Durham.

A bite-sized mathematical sightseeing tour of the natural world from the author of The Magical Maze. Why do many flowers have five or eight petals, but very few six or seven? Why do snowflakes have sixfold symmetry? Why do tigers have stripes but leopards have spots? Mathematics is to nature as Sherlock Holmes is to evidence. Mathematics can look at a single snowflake and deduce the atomic geometry of its crystals; it can start with a violin string and uncover the existence of radio waves. And mathematics still has the power to open our eyes to new and unsuspected regularities - the secret structure of a cloud or the hidden rhythms of the weather. There are patterns in the world we are now seeing for the first time - patterns at the frontier of science, yet patterns so simple that anybody can see them once they know where to look. 1.
