Sie haben noch nie etwas vom Stummelfußfrosch gehört? Oder vom Sumatra-Nashorn? Gut möglich, dass Sie auch nie von ihnen hören werden, denn sie sind dabei auszusterben. Wir erleben derzeit das sechste sogenannte Massenaussterben: In einem relativ kurzen Zeitraum verschwinden ungewöhnlich viele Arten. Experten gehen davon aus, dass es das verheerendste sein wird, seit vor etwa 65 Millionen Jahren ein Asteroid unter anderem die Dinosaurier auslöschte. Doch dieses Mal kommt die Bedrohung nicht aus dem All, sondern wir tragen die Verantwortung. Wie haben wir Menschen das Massenaussterben herbeigeführt? Wie können wir es beenden? Elizabeth Kolbert spricht mit Geologen, die verschwundene Ozeane erforschen, begleitet Botaniker in die Anden und begibt sich gemeinsam mit Tierschützern auf die Suche nach den letzten Exemplaren gefährdeter Arten. Sie zeigt, wie ernst die Lage ist, und macht uns zu Zeugen der dramatischen Ereignisse auf unserem Planeten.

A Parent’s Guide to Reflux in Infants, Children & Teens “Meeting Dr. Jamie Koufman completely changed my life. My symptoms of chronic cough and shortness of breath had been diagnosed since my childhood as asthma. Dr. Koufman identified that I had reflux, not asthma, and guided me step by step how to cure it. I have my life back and I owe it all to Dr. Koufman's insight and help.” -Suze Orman, Host of the Suze Orman Show, CNBC This is an important book that will help change how America eats and guide parents to heal our needlessly sick children and adolescents. There are 80 million infants, children and teens in America, and most have unhealthy diets. Every year, tens of millions are misdiagnosed as having asthma, allergies, nasal congestion, ear infections, chronic cough and croup, when the real problem is acid reflux. A bad diet and childhood obesity are both strongly associated with reflux. So, when a child has a respiratory disease and is not getting better with medical treatment, we believe parents should consider that reflux may be the problem. Why? Because it can be fixed! Reflux is the greatest masquerader of our time. It can be the cause of almost any kind of respiratory symptom or disease. Unlike adults who may have obvious reflux symptoms (indigestion and heartburn), children are almost always “silently refluxing,” and silent means that reflux is mysterious, difficult to diagnose and easy to overlook. Kids with reflux rarely complain of heartburn or indigestion. Respiratory reflux is the missing link between bad diet and many symptoms. Today, respiratory reflux is so common it is almost invisible. Pediatricians and medical specialists often diagnose children with asthma, sinusitis or allergy, when what they really have is reflux. Doctors all too frequently prescribe children antacid medications without beneficial effects. The real villain is not vanquished by pills. Most medications won’t do a thing for children’s reflux symptoms and can sometimes cause more harm than good. Reflux is not only uncomfortable and inconvenient, it’s dangerous. If left untreated, reflux can wreak havoc on a child’s ears, nose, throat, airways, lungs and digestive system. Our successful reflux rehabilitation program is a platform for change, with the long-term goal of health maintenance and disease prevention. And, for overweight children, another benefit of this book’s reflux program is that they will lose weight naturally and slowly with a diet that is simply “lean, clean, green and alkaline.” When we fix a child’s reflux, parents’ knowledge translates to significant dietary changes for the entire family. Out go the juice, soda, chocolate milk and other unhealthy choices. When parents understand that too much acid and sugar in the diet, and eating supper too late in the day has a big negative impact on the family’s health, they act. Their children’s well-being is at stake. Once reflux is identified or even suspected, the fix is more in parents’ control than many realize. Acid Reflux in Children is the revolutionary book for parents who want to help their children lead healthy, active lives, free of acid reflux and the many other symptoms this condition can create. Here’s to our future - HEALTHY CHILDREN!

Into this battleground comes Sophie Morrison, a young doctor visiting a patient in Acid Row.

Soon Sophie is trapped at the centre of a terrifying siege, with a man she has come to despise. Whipped to a frenzy by unsubstantiated rumour, the mob unleashes its hatred. Against authority . . . the law . . . and the 'pervert'. 'Protecting Amy' becomes the catch-all defence for the terrible events that follow. And if murder is part of it, then so be it.

Spiritual Autobiography and Meditation Handbook

Introducing the Serenity Meditation. In 1985, while visiting Chaing Mai in northern Thailand, the author asks a monk to teach him meditation. The monk replies that he cannot, but his teacher might. His teacher is Chief Priest of Sanpatong. No farang (foreigner of European descent) had ever asked him to teach meditation, yet he readily agrees to teach the author. He speaks no English. During the next month, using the monk as interpreter, he diligently teaches the Serenity Meditation. Initiation into the Serenity Meditation immediately propels the author on a most magnificent journey, transforming his life and consciousness. His drug addiction evaporates and he harvests other fruits of the spirit – a loving, compassionate heart filled with peace and joy. This book chronicles his journey along the spiritual path. It is the journey from identifying himself as a separate body-mind-personality self to experiencing his essential Self as an expression of Infinite Consciousness-Existence. This Spiritual Autobiography and Meditation Handbook describes how he gradually explores layer, beneath layer, beneath layer of his mind and being – sometimes referred as “peeling the onion.” Over the years, the author’s meditation practice has proven to be divine psychotherapy. In these pages, he shares how he learns to move from the False Self (the self developed in his own likeness rather than in the likeness of God) to the True Self (the image of God in which every human being is created). It has been, and continues to be, a journey teaching him how to relax and learn to “let go and let God.” Spiritual Autobiography and Meditation Handbook is also a manual. It contains sufficient information and techniques to allow the reader to begin or deepen a personal meditation practice. Through God’s grace, this intensive meditation practice may lead serious truth seekers to Self- and God- realization. Meditation is a relaxed, focused, uninterrupted awareness. RELAXED AWARENESS Meditation requires the ability to “let go and let God.” If you are unable to relax, deep meditation is unlikely. (Capital letters refer to headings in the Table of Contents.) Probably the easiest way to relax is to focus on belly breathing. The DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING EXERCISE is a good introduction. If you are a chest breather and have difficulty breathing into your belly, lie in THE CROCODILE POSTURE. This posture will teach you the appropriate muscles to use to breathe diaphragmatically. When you are a proficient belly breather, then master Three Part Breathing (Deergha Swaasam) described by Swami Satchidananda in his article THE BREATH OF LIFE. PROGRESSIVE MUSCLE RELAXATION and AUTOGENIC TRAINING INSTRUCTIONS provide you with a powerful entry into deep relaxation. THERMAL BIOFEEDBACK and ELECTRODERMAL BIOFEEDBACK will help you. Begin your meditation/prayer practice with ALTERNATE NOSTRIL BREATHING. [If your nose is congested, do a NETI (NASAL) WASH first.] FOCUSED AWARENESS SERENITY MEDITATION and MINDFULNESS (VIPASSANA) MEDITATION INSTRUCTIONS are clearly written and include folks you can contact if you have any questions. Mantra meditation (FOCUS WORD OR PHRASE), THE METHOD OF CHRISTIAN CENTERING PRAYER, Kriya Pranayama Meditation, and the TECHINIQUE OF PRIMORDIAL SOUND AND LIGHT CONTEMPLATION are all simple, but powerful, meditation techniques. UNINTERRUPTED AWARENESS For most folks, to achieve “uninterrupted awareness” requires a great deal of practice. The mind is like a wild, drunken monkey trapped in a cage. To tame it requires a lot of loving patience. The author has now been meditating for almost thirty years, and there still are days that he experiences “monkey mind.” When he reminds himself that God loves him just as he is, he is encouraged and continues his practice. To be successful in meditation/prayer usually requires consistent effort, determination, and practice over a long period of time. It also requires you to develop a strong moral foundation. YOGA PHILOSOPHY, INTEGRAL YOGA® and RAJA YOGA: THE YOGA OF MEDITATION expound this truth. Until you live a virtuous life, success in meditation/prayer is doubtful. How does one who covets, lies, cheats, steals, kills, and engages in sexual misconduct quiet the mind? That mind will always be agitated! You may learn powerful meditation techniques but your life and consciousness will not be transformed. You will never harvest the fruits of the spirit – a loving, compassionate heart filled with peace and joy. Remember, meditation/prayer is not about getting high; it is not about bliss. Often, the author has to remind himself not to be too satisfied resting in Bliss-consciousness. As much as he loves it, that is not his goal. Rather, his goal is Self- and God-realization. The author once asked Roy Eugene Davis, his guru (teacher), how he could become fully Self- and God-realized. Roy laughed and said that he wished he could tell the author but he could not. Then he gently explained that is a path the author had to discover for himself. You, too, will have to discover the path for yourself. The author wishes you God speed on this very special journey and stands ready to assist you in any way that he can.

Over the last half a billion years, there have been five mass extinctions of life on earth. Scientists around the world are currently monitoring the sixth, predicted to be the most devastating extinction event since the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs. Elizabeth Kolbert combines brilliant field reporting, the history of ideas and the work of geologists, botanists and marine biologists to tell the gripping stories of a dozen species – including the Panamanian golden frog and the Sumatran rhino – some already gone, others at the point of vanishing. The sixth extinction is likely to be mankind's most lasting legacy and Elizabeth Kolbert's book urgently compels us to rethink the fundamental question of what it means to be human.
