Confronting Animal Exploitation

As animal exploitation increases, animal liberation issues are of growing concern, as seen through the rise of veganism, academic disciplines devoted to animal issues, and mainstream critiques of factory farms. Yet as the dialogues, debates and books continue to grow, the voices of “street level” activists—not academics, journalists or vegan chefs—are rarely heard. This volume broadens animal liberation dialogues by offering the arguments, challenges, inspiration and narratives of grassroots activists. The essays show what animal advocacy looks like from a collective of individuals living in and around Minnesota’s Twin Cities; the essayists, however, write of issues, both personal and political, that resound on a global scale. This collection provides a platform for rank and file activists to explain why and how they dedicate their time and what is being done for animals on a local level that can translate to global efforts to end animal exploitation.

‘Adam Levin’s book is the real thing, I think. It appeals to the young readers who like formal invention and ambition... But there’s also real substance there.’ Dave Eggers This is the story of Gurion Maccabee, age ten: a lover, a fighter, a scholar, and a truly spectacular talker. Gurion has been expelled from three Jewish day-schools for acts of violence and messianic tendencies. He ends up in the Cage, a special lockdown program for the most hopeless cases at Aptakisic Junior High. But in just four days, from the moment he meets the beautiful Eliza June Watermark to the terrifying Events of November 17, Gurion’s search for righteousness sparks a violent, unstoppable rebellion. Driven equally by moral fervour and teenage exuberance, The Instructions is hilarious, troubling, empathetic, monumental, breakneck, romantic and unforgettable. ‘Evocative of David Foster Wallace... full of death-defying sentences, manic wit, exciting provocations and simple human warmth.’ Rolling Stone ‘This is a life-consuming novel, one that demands to be read feverishly. When it is over, other fiction feels insufficient, the newspaper seems irrelevant...’ New York Observer ‘A hysterical, heartfelt journey of self-discovery... A book that moves beyond completely transparent influences to reach its own distinct, new, great height.’ Village Voice ‘Manic, articulate, full of passions, courageous in its form and very funny.’ George Saunders

The Sneaky Chef now targets the other picky eater in the family! For parents of finicky eaters, The Sneaky Chef was the answer to their prayers, giving them solutions for hiding healthy food in the meals kids crave. Within a month of publication, it was a New York Times bestseller. But author Missy Chase Lapine knew another secret: the kids aren't the only ones in the family not eating their veggies! Hundreds of women wrote to tell her how the men in their lives were consistently making poor choices when it came to their diet. Men know they should eat better, but the classic male perception is that fruits and veggies are "rabbit food" and don't seem to satisfy their appetite. Now "The Sneaky Chef" has donned her apron again and developed delicious recipes that are sure to appeal to guys. Recipes include "Macho Meatballs," "Love Me Tenderloin," and "Champion Chili." These hearty meals successfully cloak ingredients that specifically target men's health issues: foods proven to help the heart, lower cholesterol, ensure a healthy prostate, and other concerns. Now everyone in the family (kids and adults alike) can benefit from The Sneaky Chef's bag of tricks.

A sharp, funny, heartfelt memoir by a career-driven baby boomer who enters semi-retirement and explores the joys, challenges, and never-ending surprises of being a “young” granddad. One summer, shortly after taking a step back from an illustrious journalism career, Ian Haysom found himself in charge of his first grandchild, Mayana, who was three at the time. As a healthy, energetic member of the baby-boom generation, Haysom did not consider himself a typical granddad. He was too young, too active, too cool for a role more often associated with denture adhesive commercials and afternoon naps. But as he soon discovered, grandparenthood is more rewarding, entertaining, and exhausting than he ever could have imagined. Grandfathered chronicles Haysom’s adventures with his grandkids Mayana, Emma, and Linden; explores the delightful and unexpected lessons they have taught him (and those he has attempted to teach them); and investigates the rapidly changing role of the grandparent in the twenty-first century. Through keen observations, hilarious anecdotes, and fascinating insights reminiscent of Bill Bryson (or “Bill Bryson with a touch of arthritis,” as Haysom quips), this charming memoir will resonate with boomer grandparents everywhere.

If you have to read this book, then you do not get Direct-to-Brain Windows! The first ever tell-all book about Direct-to-Brain Windows. Do you see little semi-transparent windows and videos in front of your eyes? No?! Then you are excluded too! It sounds crazy, but getting video directly to our eyes and ears removes the need to look at a screen or to wear headphones, and is just as safe and harmless. Ted Huntington breaks the silence for the first time in history by telling the public openly and explicitly many secret details about Direct-to-Brain Windows, remote neuron reading, writing, and muscle moving. But perhaps even more importantly, Huntington reveals the truth about many "science" lies, frauds, secrets and mistaken beliefs. It's shocking, vicious, and beyond belief, to realize that many millions secretly see inside houses and heads in windows in front of their eyes, but for centuries, have denied that same benefit to millions of other fine people - not even telling them that such a thing happened long ago in the past. But it's all there, clearly spelled out by many heroic thinkers through the many dark centuries of silence and violence.

Approaching its topic with humor, style, and a critical eye, this unique guidebook enables parents to provide a healthy and diverse diet for their children. Instead of providing yet another guide to kids’ nutrition, a medical discussion, a treatise on the perils of obesity, or a parenting primer on good table manners, this study demonstrates that children need to be taught how to eat well just as they are taught to walk. With detailed guidance from nutritionists, physicians, scientists, and chefs, this handbook details how to find the right foods, how to overcome recurring problems, and emphasize the healthiest elements. Dealing with the picky eater and the real worries about obesity and good nutrition, this survey posits that youngsters eat the way they do because of how the parents themselves eat—and shows how to combat any and all bad habits. Offering plenty of information on how to go about serious change and where to find the best resources, this reference is guaranteed to broaden the horizon of any child’s menu.
