Animal Feeds Feeding and Nutrition and Ration Evaluation CD ROM

Author: David Tisch
Publisher: Cengage Learning
ISBN: 9781305450455
Release Date: 2005-10-05
Genre: Science

Feeds, Feeding, and Animal Nutrition is the first book of its kind to finally pair ration formulation software with the book to create a comprehensive learning solution. The animal feeding and nutrition industries are as computerized as any industry in the world, but the challenge has been to find software that can effectively accompany a book and give the reader everything they need to succeed. This is a deficiency that has now been addressed. The ration formulation software has the same functionality as that used in the industry today and covers each species discussed in the book. Along with the software, the book includes the most current information on animal feeding and nutrition available, including full species coverage such as four ruminants, swine, chickens, rabbits, horses, dogs, cats, trout, and catfish. The book also extensively covers dietary energy, water requirements for livestock, and feed milling.

Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades 6th Edition

Author: Steve Solomon
Publisher: Sasquatch Books
ISBN: 9781570616358
Release Date: 2009-06-01
Genre: Gardening

This is the updated 6th edition of Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades, which has evolved from a self-published pamphlet to the master guide to organic vegetable gardening over the past 28 years. Steve Solomon, who was a founder of the Territorial Seed Company, was one of the early proponents of organic gardening, and the first to codify and refine the best practices of small-plot vegetable gardening in the Pacific Northwest. The approaches to understanding and preparing soils, composting, chemical-free fertilizers, efficient uses of water, and garden planning are universal to any climate or region. Solomon gets specific in his extensive advice on growing specific crops in the gentle maritime Northwest climate. This update includes his latest findings on seed sources, refinements in growing and cultivation techniques, and other organic gardening best practices. Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades lays out the principles, but the author advocates that readers think for themselves and grow their gardens as they see fit.

Die Vegetarierin

Author: Han Kang
Publisher: Aufbau Digital
ISBN: 9783841211545
Release Date: 2016-08-15
Genre: Fiction

Ein seltsam verstörendes, hypnotisierendes Buch über eine Frau, die, laut ihrem Ehemann an Durchschnittlichkeit kaum zu übertreffen ist – bis sie eines Tages beschließt, kein Fleisch mehr zu essen... »Bevor meine Frau zur Vegetarierin wurde, hielt ich sie für nichts Besonderes. Bei unserer ersten Begegnung fand ich sie nicht einmal attraktiv. Mittelgroß, ein Topfschnitt, irgendwo zwischen kurz und lang, gelbliche unreine Haut, Schlupflider und dominante Wangenknochen. So fühlte ich mich weder von ihr angezogen noch abgestoßen und sah daher keinen Grund, sie nicht zu heiraten.« Yeong-Hye und ihr Ehemann sind ganz gewöhnliche Leute. Er geht beflissen seinem Bürojob nach und hegt keinerlei Ambitionen. Sie ist eine zwar leidenschaftslose, aber pflichtbewusste Hausfrau. Die angenehme Eintönigkeit ihrer Ehe wird jäh gefährdet, als Yeong-Hye beschließt, sich fortan ausschließlich vegetarisch zu ernähren und alle tierischen Produkte aus dem Haushalt entfernt. »Ich hatte einen Traum«, so ihre einzige Erklärung. Ein kleiner Akt der Unabhängigkeit, aber ein fataler, denn in einem Land wie Südkorea, in dem strenge soziale Normen herrschen, gilt der Vegetarismus als subversiv. Doch damit nicht genug. Bald nimmt Yeong-Hyes passive Rebellion immer groteskere Ausmaße an. Sie, die niemals gerne einen BH getragen hat, fängt an, sich in der Öffentlichkeit zu entblößen und von einem Leben als Pflanze zu träumen. Bis sich ihre gesamte Familie gegen sie wendet. Die Vegetarierin ist eine kafkaeske Geschichte in drei Akten über Scham und Begierde, Macht und Obsession sowie unsere zum Scheitern verurteilten Versuche, den Anderen zu verstehen, der ja doch, wie man selbst, Gefangener im eigenen Leib ist.
