On the far side of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, halfway between the mountains and the ocean, stands the little town of Forks. In that town, in a quiet neighborhood of modest homes and shabby businesses, there remains a dilapidated pink warehouse. Packed inside that warehouse, living in deplorable conditions, were once over 120 dogs. Some of the dogs were kept in crates piled high on shelves, arranged in rows along the walls, and shoved into corners behind heaps of garbage and urine-saturated straw. Some of the dogs were confined to wire-sided or glassed-in kennels. One was kept in an old horse trailer. Dead ones were stored in a cooler. In one of the crates was a black dog named Daisy. This is her story. It is also the story of the rescue of 124 dogs - and one snake - from the Olympic Animal Sanctuary, the only large-scale dog rescue in the US to be carried out with no support from local government. The OAS rescue was an epic narrative that extended over several years and featured small town politics, protests, assault, lawsuits, arrests, and a midnight escape, all played out to a nationwide audience. 1.

How to Get to the Future Before It Gets to You ...

In this challenging book, the author of the celebrated best-selling How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying (which inspired the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical), provides a daring and amusing antidote to those Doomsday prophets who believe that man is destined to destroy himself and planet earth. Shepherd Mead quickly proves that "natural" isn't necessarily good; demonstrates how to use "population" against people (or just how many can we stand?); and describes how to become a scourge of environment-busters. Highlighting his narrative with amusing and telling anecdotes, Mr. Mead discusses new energy concepts, sophisticated waste disposal systems that reclaim everything (even the garbage), frozen and instant electricity, multispectral photography, and some far-out ideas of his own in the area of communications and do-it-yourself ecology. In a lighter vein, he suggests a Pleasure Index as a replacement for GNP (Gross National Product); describes how we can keep people from a future that's already in the past; how the future home can be an electric and electronic paradise (or hell, depending on the individual viewer); electric education and the university in decades to come; improving people through "germinal choice"; benevolent brainwashing; the Shepherd Mead Symbiotic Super Box, transduction, and advanced cloning. Then there's the very special Magical Population-Reducing People Crib (it's really wild and guaranteed to discourage childbearing); Super Sports Heroes of the Future (part man and part animal - like the greatest middle distance runner in history who won an Olympic gold medal and the Kentucky Derby. And he can run with or without a jockey. Or the great Australian female high jumper who qualified with two kids in her pouch, but was later disbarred when she was caught shaving). Sexual-social problems in the future also come under the keen scrutiny of Mr. Mead. What will become of sin when we have plea 1. Language: English. Narrator: Randy Hames.

Garbage

The term garbage is defined to mean refuse, waste materials, rubbish, trash, residues, useless, debris, hazardous, ashes, unwanted or undesired materials or solid wastes. The word is also used to mean disposable or non-disposable solid or semi solid, combustible or non-combustible materials that result from human and animal activities. Thus, solid wastes can be degradable or non - degradable. Each household generates garbage or waste day in and day out. Items and materials that we no longer need or do not have any further use for and with fall in the category of solid wastes or garbage. Very often we tend to throw them away haphazardly because they are no longer useful. These items are called solid wastes. These materials include paper, wood, clothes, metals, glass, chemicals, biomass sludge, slag heaps, paints and sand. Garbage is no longer just an environmental polluter but a financial asset. At the household-level proper segregation of waste has to be done and it should be ensured that all organic matter is kept aside for composting. These materials can be recycled and re - used and thus, they are economically viable. They can make a difference for millions in the third world.

Shea's Lounge
28,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Shea's Lounge is the story of Shea, the Runaway. A female Border collie who spent two years living alone on the streets of Florida. One day, while she was begging for food from the local fire station, Shea was captured and taken to the closest animal shelter by a fire- man who felt sorry for her, and wanted her to find a real home. On the very first day she was available for adoption, Joe entered the shelter 'just to look around'. When he heard Shea woof at him, it was love at first sight. Joe was clearly informed by the shelter's staff that Shea was a runaway. That idea didn't hit Joe until he brought her home. Shea quickly found a way out of Joe's fenced yard and ran as fast as she could go. After several escapes and re-captures by Joe, the local shelter, and by nearby neighbors, Shea once again found herself back in another filthy alley, staring at the garbage and the loneliness she had always known. Suddenly, Shea had a vision of the man who gave her his food, his home and his love. She remembered how his gentle touch made her feel, how his soft voice sounded to her, and mostly, how he always had a full bowl of food for her to eat at anytime. Shea suddenly realized what her instincts were now telling her to do, and she ran as fast as she could go, straight back to Joe's house. She anxiously waited for him to return home, while sitting on her new favorite lounge chair.
