Aquatic Life Aquariums
Frogs, minnows, snails, ducks, catfish, and muskrats are a few of the animals that make up a lake and pond food web. But do you know why mosquitoes, mold, water lilies, and bacteria are important too? Or how humans can change the health of a lake or a pond? See lake and pond food webs in action in this fascinating book.
The expression "you are what you eat" certainly applies to Americans, not just in terms of our physical health, but also in the myriad ways that our taste preferences, eating habits, and food culture are intrinsically tied to our society and history. This standout reference work comprises two volumes containing more than 600 alphabetically arranged historical entries on American foods and beverages, as well as dozens of historical recipes for traditional American foods; and a third volume of more than 120 primary source documents. Never before has there been a reference work that coalesces this diverse range of information into a single set. The entries in this set provide information that will transform any American history research project into an engaging learning experience. Examples include explanations of how tuna fish became a staple food product for Americans, how the canning industry emerged from the Civil War, the difference between Americans and people of other countries in terms of what percentage of their income is spent on food and beverages, and how taxation on beverages like tea, rum, and whisky set off important political rebellions in U.S. history.
Few titles could be timelier than the second edition of Crisis Management in the Food and Drinks Industry - A Practical Approach. The world is worrying about a human pandemic arising from the avian flu epidemic that is spreading from the Far East, the implications of which could be as great for the food industry as were the outbreaks of foot and mouth disease and BSE.
This practical and greatly expanded edition by media and public relations veteran Colin Doeg focuses on the communications aspects of dealing with a crisis. It is global in its coverage of the subject, reviewing practices and requirements in countries ranging from the USA and the UK to Australia and New Zealand.
Doeg offers advice ranging from preparing for the unthinkable to the dramatic expansion of the Internet, avoiding being caught off-guard by a situation, the ramifications of product tampering and managing an actual crisis.
Advice is also offered on dealing with extremist organizations and terrorist threats as well as bioterrorism - "a clear and present danger" - and a number of problems facing the food industry, including the practice of selling meat unfit for human consumption and the threat posed by the increasing toxicity of fish due to the rising pollution of the world's oceans.
In a special late chapter - written only three months before publication - the author looks ahead to events which he believes will shape the world of crisis management in the future, including the empowering influence of the Internet during the 2004 Asian Tsunami, the discovery of the illegal dye Sudan 1 (Red) in millions of food products and the fears of a pandemic arising from the spreading outbreak of avian flu.
Examples of typical documents like a crisis plan for a business, a crisis checklist, a press release announcing a product recall, an announcement to employees and a checklist for anyone dealing with a threatening phone call are provided. Also included is a list of sources of information and assistance in the event of a product crisis.
Crisis Management in the Food and Drinks Industry is the only title dealing specifically with this crucial subject in relation to the food industry. As such, it is relevant not only to those in the food industry, but also to marketing and senior management in general in the fields of agriculture, public health and law enforcement.
Empirical in character, this book analyses the society-nature interaction of the Tsimane', a rural indigenous community in the Bolivian Amazon. Following a common methodological framework, the material and energy flow (MEFA) approach, it gives a detailed account of the biophysical exchange relations the community entertains with its natural environment: the socio-economic use of energy, materials, land and time. Equally so, the book provides a deeper insight into the local base of sociometabolic transition processes and their inherent dynamics of change. The local community described in this publication stands for the many thousands of rural systems in developing countries that, in light of an ever more globalising world, are currently steering a similar - but maybe differently-paced - development course. This book presents insightful methodological and conceptual advances in the field of sustainability science and provides a vital reader for students and researchers of human ecology, ecological anthropology, and environmental sociology. It equally contributes to improving professional development work methods.
Follow the Skinny Rules Plan to lose weight and stay and healthy! The rules are not based on a fad diet, but rather the end of dieting. The rules focus on building healthy lifestyle habits and turning your body into a Fat Burning Machine! The Skinny Rules Food and Exercise Journal is a comprehensive journal designed to help you achieve your weight loss goals. This journal was made to complement the bestselling book "The Skinny Rules," by Bob Harper. One of the cardinal rules in the book refers to the importance of eating 30 to 50 grams of fiber each day. This is why we included a special section for fiber when most other food journals only include a section for protein, fat and carbs. We added the fiber section to this journal because of the importance of this rule. Eating enough fiber ensures that you'll have a smaller waistline and feel fuller longer, so it's important to track your fiber intake along with other nutritional information. The other sections conform to other skinny rules such as eating a certain amount of protein per day, eating the right carbs before lunch, consuming healthy fats and more!! The interior of the journal features sections for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. There is also a section for the time because it's important to eat the right foods and certain times throughout the day, according to Bob Harper. Extra space is also provided to track water intake and write down your exercise goals. This book is jumbo sized, to provide more room for writing, planning and goal setting. In addition, we provided margin space for extra notes, stickers or words of encouragement that you might want to add to help you stay on track! (Bonus: Graphing paper is located at the end of the journal! Feel free to use this take extra notes, paste pictures, more goals and create a mini dream / goal board within the book!) 8 x 11 size
