    On Infertile Ground Population Control and Womens Rights in the Era of Climate Change [Sasser, Jade S.] (Tapa Blanda)

    -Autor: Sasser, Jade S.-Editorial: NYU Press-Formato: Tapa Blanda-Idioma: Ingles-ISBN-13: 9781479899357-Páginas: 224-Dimensiones: 22.86cm. x 15.24cm. x 0.00cm.-Peso (kg.): 0.55-Descripcion: A critique of population control narratives reproduced by international development actors in the 21st century Since the turn of the millennium, American media, scientists, and environmental activists have insisted that the global population crisis is "back" and that the only way to avoid catastrophic climate change is to ensure womens universal access to contraception. Did the population problem ever disappear? What is bringing it back and why now? In On Infertile Ground, Jade S. Sasser explores how a small network of international development actors, including private donors, NGO program managers, scientists, and youth advocates, is bringing population back to the center of public environmental debate. While these narratives never disappeared, Sasser argues, histories of human rights abuses, racism, and a conservative backlash against abortion in the 1980s drove them underground until now. Using interviews and case studies from a wide range of sites from Silicon Valley foundation headquarters to youth advocacy trainings, the halls of Congress and an international climate change conference Sasser demonstrates how population growth has been reframed as an urgent source of climate crisis and a unique opportunity to support womens sexual and reproductive health and rights. ­Although well-intentioned promoting positive action, womens empowerment, and moral accountability to a global community these groups also perpetuate the same myths about the sexuality and lack of virtue and control of women and the people of global south that have been debunked for decades. Unless the development community recognizes the pervasive repackaging of failed narratives, Sasser argues, true change and development progress will not be possible. On Infertile Ground presents a unique critique of international development that blends the study of feminism, environmentalism, and activism in a groundbreaking way. It will make any development professional take a second look at the ideals driving their work...

He was not. There was never an optimist who had the outlook he had. And he shared it with everyone he came in contact with. In his multicareer life, he touched people from many backgrounds different from his own. His time in the mega high school (Central Catholic in Toledo), his seminary life in Cincinnati, and his short time in the priesthood in Detroit and in South Georgia prepared him for handling unexpected relationshipsone of which led to a marriage. Following that, fitting in became a career of its own. But it was in his second marriage that he dared to branch out, taking on challenges that he had unwittingly put on hold for the duration of the first. Jim and Joyce finished their teaching careers and embarked on a life which could not be contained in one town, one state, or even one country. They chased after goals they had thought they could never achieve, and then realized it was the chase that was more important than the finish line. They learned that divergent personalities could merge successfully and often compared their relationship to a rubber band which, though stretched, would always return to its original shape. And after Jim's death, Joyce thought all his friends should know how that relationship had evolved...

He alerts us to the fact that our pineal glands have almost certainly become damaged by environmental conditions on this industrialized planet. Your pineal gland is responsible for making the majority of your melatonin, and the studies cited in this book suggest that melatonin may very well be the most powerful cell-protecting molecule in existence. From protecting your cells and eyesight to helping your body make antibodies, lower elevated blood sugar levels, and counteract many, if not all, forms of cancer – melatonin does it all. In addition to discussing how to heal your pineal gland in order to benefit from optimal melatonin levels, Joel discusses how healing your pineal gland can improve your perception, intuition, self-mastery, and insight. This gland is considered by many spiritual practitioners, philosophers, cultures, religions, and researchers to be either the center of your "third eye" chakra or an information receiver, or both. Joel also discusses the role cannabis (marijuana) and dimethyltryptamine (DMT) can play in creativity, melatonin production, and personal epiphanies. Are you ready to turn your pineal gland back on and start receiving the kind of creativity and body energy you had as a child, before your pineal gland became calcified? Are you ready to use your built-in Enlightenment App...

In front of her family. Especially if her dad is your boss. Because when you make it clear you've made a mistake, he's likely to send you out of the country to get you as far away from his broken-hearted daughter as possible. It happened to me. Now I'm stuck in Ireland trying to redeem myself so I can get promoted and have the life I've planned for: successful career, loving wife and kids, a comfortable, financially-secure home life in Texas. But all of that seems to evaporate the moment I walk into the historic pub and see the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. Only, he's not a woman. Charlie Murray is most definitely a man-the kind of man who causes me to take a second look for the first time in my life. And a third look, and fourth. I can't help but want to get to know him better... to get close to him, touch him, maybe even kiss him. But I'm straight. Or so I've always thought. Even if I'm not, how in the world could a feisty Irishman ever fit into the safe, predictable life I've always planned for? Charlie: Don't ever accidentally fall for the straight guy. Especially when he's trying to pry your family's business right out from under you. I should know. Because when Hudson Wilde walks into my family's pub and begins babbling so adorably, I can't help but fall just a little bit in love. But I'm looking for Forever Man, and the sexy American is certainly not him. He's so confused about what he wants, even choosing something from the dinner menu throws him into a fuddle. But those eyes... how can I resist? So maybe I'll give in. One steamy night before he heads home and I go back to life at the pub. We'll never see each other again. Until, of course, his business deal sends me to Hobie, Texas, right into the middle of Hudson's steady life, more gay Wildes than can fit on a dance floor, and an ex-girlfriend who may or may not be content remaining an ex. But the more time I spend with Hudson, the more I think he might be my Forever Man after all. And I may be his. Is it possible we could both be so lucky? Hudson's Luck is the fourth book in the Forever Wilde series but can be read on its own. Beware it includes 93k words of delicious man parts touching, grandfathers meddling, neighbors nosy-ing, dogs fornicating, cats being cats, horses... ah, crunching apples? or something... and one very flirty Stevie...

    Bucky, the Little Desert Donkey [Abbott, Elizabeth Griswold] (Tapa Blanda)

    -Autor: Abbott, Elizabeth Griswold-Editorial: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform-Formato: Tapa Blanda-Idioma: Ingles-ISBN-13: 9781482702132-Páginas: 24-Dimensiones: 22.86cm. x 15.24cm. x 0.15cm.-Peso (kg.): 0.11-Descripcion: Hojas de Otoño (Autumn Leaves) is a compilation of poetry from Anahuac. Xahel Galicia combines the rich experience of her youth in rural Mexico, her working years in the United States, and her wisdom as an elder to bring young readers a taste of their own bilingual and bicultural heritage. Just as Xahel's grandmother spoke in poetic verse with her mother, Xahel was raised to see the world through a poets eyes. For Xahel, a river was never described as water, rather the flowing liquor of the Earth that wraps around the Mother's skirt. Autumn Leaves is a collection of unique short poems which include important topics such as love, immigration, solitude, justice, Mexican culture, and the Red Road (i.e. the life-path of respect). Whether pondering the cyclical nature of death in "Rebirth", or rejoicing with the undocumented mother reunited with her family in "Liberty", or discovering the roots of an ancient Aztec tradition in "The Dance", the reader will connect to his/her own world through poetic reflection. Each poem, originally written in Spanish, has an English translation. Many poems include words in Nahuatl, the indigenous language of the Aztecs. Bilingual students will delight to see how meaning and depth can fluctuate in poetry depending on the natural variations in language. Autumn Leaves is also a collection of photography, intricate drawings, and famous paintings from local Oregon artists. For many students the visual arts are just as important as the written word. The images included in this book are meant to inspire the young reader's imagination. So, tiahui! Go forward! Let your mind and heart delve into the world of poetry, art and culture! This is a bilingual (Spanish-English) book published by Red Road Books. "Xahel Galicia is a warrior of words, who dips her pen into the core of the earth for inspiration and strength. Her poetry is a call to action, to battle for justice, dance for love, and revel in the divine..." -Olga Sanchez, Miracle Theatre Director...
