An Anatomy of Regulatory Failure in China
Author: John K. Yasuda
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Category: Political Science
China's food safety system is in crisis. Egregious scandals, as varied as the sale of liquor laced with Viagra and the distribution of fake eggs, reveal how regulatory practices have been stretched to their limit in the world's largest food production system. On Feeding the Masses focuses on the oft-cited but ultimately overlooked concept of scale to identify the root causes of China's regulatory failures in food safety. The 'politics of scale' framework highlights how regulators disagree on which level of government is best suited to regulate ('the scale of governance'), struggle to address multilevel tensions ('multidimensional scale integration'), and fail to understand how policies at one level of government can affect other levels of government in unexpected and costly ways ('scale externalities'). Drawing from over 200 interviews with food safety regulators and producers, the study provides one of the most comprehensive accounts of China's food safety crisis to date.

Eine Tiefengeschichte der frühesten Staaten
Author: James C. Scott
Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag
Category: Social Science
Uns modernen Menschen erscheint die Sesshaftigkeit so natürlich wie dem Fisch das Wasser. Wie selbstverständlich gehen wir und auch weite Teile der historischen Forschung davon aus, dass die neolithische Revolution, in deren Verlauf der Mensch seine nomadische Existenz aufgab und zum Ackerbauer und Viehzüchter wurde, ein bedeutender zivilisatorischer Fortschritt war, dessen Früchte wir noch heute genießen. James C. Scott erzählt in seinem provokanten Buch eine ganz andere Geschichte. Gestützt auf archäologische Befunde, entwickelt er die These, dass die ersten bäuerlichen Staaten aus der Kontrolle über die Reproduktion entstanden und ein hartes Regime der Domestizierung errichteten, nicht nur mit Blick auf Pflanzen und Tiere. Auch die Bürger samt ihrer Sklaven und Frauen wurden der Herrschaft dieser frühesten Staaten unterworfen. Sie brachte Strapazen, Epidemien, Ungleichheiten und Kriege mit sich. Einzig die »Barbaren« haben sich gegen die Mühlen der Zivilisation gestemmt, sich der Sesshaftigkeit und den neuen Besteuerungssystemen verweigert und damit der Unterordnung unter eine staatliche Macht. Sie sind die heimlichen Helden dieses Buches, das unseren Blick auf die Menschheitsgeschichte verändert.

Every person that arrives at a higher conscientious would like to bring their love along for the ride. Often times with the excitement of a neophyte we are able to make great steps towards this end goal but somehow we fall short. Perhaps our vision is unclear of the end game. Perhaps our purpose, goals and objectives become bogged down in the day to day nurturing our won delicate conscientiousness and we the ties that bond of to our love ones. While every individual wants the enthusiasm of love, the conscience person has to take on a dual personality. Live each day to love her and live, fight and die for the revolutionary change of the greater community. We will continue down the path with this delicate balancing act until successful. Then love and peace can coincide for both our inner selves and the causes that we take ownership of.
A History of African Americans
Author: Robin D. G. Kelley,Earl Lewis
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Category: Social Science
Written by the most prominent of the new generation of historians, this superb volume offers the most up-to-date and authoritative account available of African-American history, ranging from the first Africans brought as slaves into the Americas, to today's black filmmakers and politicians. Here is a panoramic view of African American life, rich in gripping first-person accounts and short character sketches that invite readers to relive history as African Americans experienced it. We begin in Africa, with the growth of the slave trade, and follow the forced migration of what is estimated to be between ten and twenty million people, witnessing the terrible human cost of slavery in the colonies of England and Spain. We read of the Haitian Revolution, which ended victoriously in 1804 with the birth of the first independent black nation in the New World, and of slave rebellions and resistance in the United States in the years leading up to the Civil War. There are vivid accounts of the Civil War and Reconstruction years, the backlash of notorious "Jim Crow" laws and mob lynchings, and the founding of key black educational institutions. The contributors also trace the migration of blacks to the major cities, the birth of the Harlem Renaissance, the hardships of the Great Depression and the service of African Americans in World War II, the struggle for Civil Rights in the 1950s and '60s, and the emergence of today's black middle class. From Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass to Martin Luther King, Jr., and Louis Farrakhan, To Make Our World Anew is an unforgettable portrait of a people.

Der Tag, an dem die USA verschwanden ... Es ist ein Tag wie jeder andere ... scheinbar! Denn an diesem Tag geschieht – ohne jede Warnung – das Unvorstellbare: Die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika verschwinden in einem gigantischen Energieblitz. Alles weist auf einen perfiden Terroranschlag hin. Doch wer hat die Mittel, einen solchen Blitz herbeizuführen? Wer ist für den »Effekt« verantwortlich? Während die Welt ins Taumeln gerät, nehmen die Amerikaner, die den Anschlag überlebt haben, den Kampf auf.
A Journal by a Layman
Author: George Andrew
In Mark’s gospel, numbering a little over sixteen chapters, God shares his message and his plan about eternity through Jesus. As the first gospel writer, Mark describes Jesus’ sermon on eternity and initiates the discussion of daily life and spirituality and their relationship as dramatized by Jesus. His vocation of readiness meets God’s flowing plan daily and proposes the same readiness for Christians. In The Gospel of Mark—Eternity and Readiness, author George Andrew offers a journey through the gospel of Mark and presents a look at this intersection of eternity and readiness. He proposes the lifeblood of faith as the sole root of readiness, and he offers his views and perceptions of the life of Jesus as told through the words of the oldest gospel. Andrew—a modern, independent layman—taps into his intuitive side to share his view of God and the spiritual experience. A New Testament commentary that acts like a walk with Jesus, Andrew shows how Mark allows a life of thought, action, and essence to unfold. It calls believers to a muscular Christianity—one that is strong and of today and helps address the spiritual exhaustion, shallowness, and the questioning torpidity of the time.

GUTSHOP '84 was the fourth in a series of workshops on various aspects of fish feeding (Table 1). Initially, the organizers merely invited regional (Pacific Northwest) fisheries scientists to share, and possibly develop mutual solutions to, the many technical problems associated with trying to obtain meaningful, quantitative information from fish stomach contents, and the subsequent statistical treatment and interpretation of the multivariate data. Since then, although not explicitly based upon any internal cycle, these scientists and increasingly more and more dispersed colleagues continued to congregate for workshop deliberations every two or three years. From the 49 attendees at the first workshop, the number of participants had grown to 65 at GUTSHOP '78, and 107 at GUTSHOP '81. By the third workshop, we were drawing scientists from across the U. S. and Canada, and from as far away as Norway. The topical content of the workshops has also evolved from the predominantly technical aspects of fish collection and stomach contents processing techniques, statistical analysis, and data manipulation and presentation to considerations of theoretical ecology, bioenergetics, and behavior.

The Conant Method: the True Nutritional Solution
Author: Daryl Conant M. Ed,Daryl Conant
Category: Health & Fitness
Earth is a complex and mysterious planet. Its origin and purpose are not truly known. What we do know is that human civilization has to depend on the Earth for survival. The human being has been living off the Earth ever since the beginning of man's first breath. The Earth is designed to provide all the vital nutrients animals need to live by. However, due to the development of industrial factors and processed food, the vital nutrients of Earth are being compromised. Illness, organ disease, cancer, psychological disorders, and obesity are growing in astronomical proportions. All of these situations are a direct result of poor nutrition, processed foods, and the depletion of the Earth's vital nutrient supply. Diet Earth is a revolutionary change in the thinking of human nutrition. Daryl Conant teaches methods in how to eat, when to eat, why we need to eat and how important it is to eat raw nutrient rich organic foods. I believe that we have to take a stand against poor nutrition in America. We are losing the battle against obesity! As long as processed food, refined sugar, hydrogenated fats, trans fatty acids, exocitotoxins, additives, and preservatives remain the staple of the American diet, human health will continue to worsen. The true answer for solving our out of control health care system is to teach Americans the truth about food. Diet Earth is my contribution to society in developing greater nutritional consciousness.

A Lifetime of Ideas from a Leading Activist and Thinker
Author: David Suzuki
Publisher: Greystone Books
In this revised and expanded edition of his collected writings, David Suzuki continues to explore the themes that have informed his work for more than four decades — the interconnectedness of all things, our misguided elevation of economics above all else, the urgent need to deal with climate change — but with an increased emphasis on solutions to the myriad problems we face, his inspiring vision for the future, and the legacy he hopes to leave behind. There is also more emphasis on the personal, as he recounts episodes from his childhood and early adulthood and speaks eloquently about old age, death, and the abiding role of nature and family in his life. Written with clarity, passion, and wisdom, this book is essential for anyone who is an admirer of David Suzuki, who wants to understand what science can and can’t do, or who wants to make a difference.
Searching for Meaning in the Twenty-First Century
Author: C. Strenger
Category: Political Science
This book shows how, after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the Gospel of the free market became the only world-religion of universal validity. The belief that all value needs to be quantifiable was extended to human beings, whose value became dependent on their rating on the various ranking-scales in the global infotainment system.
