Meat Import Prospects of the European Economic Community (Classic Reprint): Donald Wilson Regier
Each year the average North American ingests well over 200 pounds of animal protein, and the global appetite for meat has also increased dramatically. But feeding our meat addiction comes at tremendous cost. Maintaining our current level of consumption is ecologically impossible in the long-term, and undermines our personal health and community well-being. High Steaks documents the consequences of modern, large-scale industrial meat production and excessive consumption including: The loss of vast tracts of arable land and fresh water to intensive livestock production Increased pollution Loss of biodiversity Deforestation and accelerating climate change The environmental and health impacts of too much animal fat and of fertilizers, antibiotics and other chemicals in our food. Timely and compelling, this powerful book offers a modest, commonsense approach to a serious problem, suggesting strategies for all of us to cut back on our consumption of animal products and ensure that the meat we do consume is produced in a sustainable, ecologically responsible manner. At the same time, >High Steaks describes progressive food policy shifts that will discourage factory farming and encourage people to eat in ways that support ecosystems and personal health. 1.

The fifth Henry Kennis mystery takes us into the closed, gossip-riddled, back-stabbing world of Nantucket´s community theater. Horst Refn, the widely disliked and resented Artistic Director of the Nantucket Theater Lab, has been found stuffed into the meat freezer in his basement. Most of the actors, all the technical crew, and quite a few of the Theater Lab Board members, whom Refn was scamming and blackmailing, are suspects in his murder. The island´s Police Chief Henry Kennis has to pick his way through a social minefield as he searches for the killer. At the same time, daughter´s new boyfriend, football star Hector Cruz, has been accused of sexting her. Carrie knows the offending pictures didn´t come from him, and Henry has to prove it before the boy gets suspended, which means probing into the family secrets of Hector´s father, a firebrand agitprop playwright, who happens to be a prime suspect in Refn´s murder. Every story is a fiction, every identity proves false, and every statement a lie. The counterfeit bills found at the scene of the crime are the most obvious symbol of the deceptions and distractions that obscure the investigation. The truth lies buried in the past, in Refn´s earlier crimes and the victims who came to Nantucket seeking revenge. When the culprit has been revealed, the last masks torn off, and final murder foiled - live, on stage, during the opening night of Who Dun It, the eerily prescient opening drama of the Theater Lab Season - Jane says to Henry, ´´Is everything counterfeit?´´ He smiles. ´´Almost.´´

Warning: Before you even consider listening to this, understand that this is a story about a guy that is large, feels he is in charge, and is ready to kick some butt. In truth, he is essentially deaf, almost blind, socially handicapped, and has little sense of smell to boot. Add to that his basic disregard for proper attire and you have one humorous, heartfelt, and, at times, moving story. Okay maybe not that heartfelt or moving, but it may all depend on how you look at things. If you can get past the loud Hawaiian shirts, shorts, and glaring white knee socks and sandals, then you can get to the meat and potatoes of what is coming at you. It is a diverse and respectful viewpoint of life, both in and out of the Amish community, and how the Plain Folk and English view each other. In the first volume, The Whoopie Affair, listeners will meet G, the erstwhile suburban hit man, and Eli, the Amish blacksmith. Two totally different men. Two totally different families. Two entirely separate worlds. One destiny. What happens when this unlikely dynamic duo go about solving the mystery of the missing whoopie pies? Plenty of mirth, merriment, malevolence, and muck, but above all, good clean family fun. This is a story that can be listened to by anyone of any age, from 9 to 99. So saddle up, get in the SUV or horse and buggy, put on your wrap around shades, tighten up those suspenders, fix your ball cap or straw hat on top of your head, and get your sandals - or boots - on! It is time to roll and party with Eli the blacksmith and G the hit man in an adventure you are not soon to forget. You will never look at a horse and buggy the same way again. 1. Language: English.

A delectable stew of post apocalyptic prepper fiction. This book contains the three-book dystopia series Burning Skillet, Smoking Skillet, and Disaster Du Jour! A wild romp of chaotic recipes for survival with tips and tricks and survivalist barter skill savvy from a middle-aged prepper couple bugging out with a totally unprepared elderly couple from Alabama to a Florida Fish camp deep in the woods. North Korea has taken down many of the electrical grids worldwide with cyber and terrorist physical attacks, and it´s lights out for America and her allies. Our stalwart survivors team up with others to defend what they have and bravely forage out to scavenge what’s left of society in a coastal city. Supplies are low, food is disappearing at an alarming rate, and game is getting scarce as desperate people do even more desperate things to survive. Some people approach this dystopian world with a gun and violence; others use their prepper wits and skills and see an opportunity to thrive and barter. Society can be rebuilt with prepared minds and a crisis planning cookbook based on basics of barter and community resilience. Regular old country folks often are better set up then most of the populace to face this disaster in style, and it is a humorous, delightful listen to find out just who outfoxes who when it comes to putting meat and eggs on the dinner table. Better guns or better brains? You decide! 1. Language: English. Narrator: T. David Rutherford. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/124012/bk_acx0_124012_sample.mp3.
