Stunt Water is Wakefield's first 20 years of spoken word and lyrics collected from his original three now out-of-print books. It is a vulnerable cross section of his writing that moves from disarmingly human to sudden bursts of beast, able to seamlessly blend back into grounded stories of humor, heartache and identity using crisp, innovative and unforgettable metaphors. If you can only buy one Buddy Wakefield book, this collection is the most comprehensive of his most compelling works to date. His craft mimics the intrigue of propellers when they make themselves invisible. Buddy s honest story is a one-man relay race to the light; that of a boy at gentleman practice who sometimes wants to blend in so badly he forgets his purpose has already arrived and there is no need to fight a war that s long been over. The reader must be prepared for the recurring nightmares from which Buddy wakes up only to realize that whatever supposedly awful thing was stalking him was actually just trying to help."

There are two main signs that no one should ignore: unexplainable fatigue for longer periods of time and excess weight gain. No, we do not mean that if you experience any of these two symptoms you are automatically suffering from who-knows-what dangerous disease. Our point is that, in our society, one can not be too careful when it comes to his or her health and especially when we are talking about the symptoms of a syndrome affecting more than a quarter of America's population. Yes, Insulin Resistance is the foe that, paradoxically, becomes increasingly more popular among the world population of all ages and social categories. Although studies show that this condition can be prevented (unless it is genetically inherited), not too many persons are able or willing to live a life with restrictions of any kind. But, as through a kind of magic, this is valid only until the moment when we are told that we have diabetes or are on the verge of developing it. Then, we are all interested in doing whatever it takes to protect our body. Fortunately, with the proper medication and following your physician's recommendations closely, you can now control the evolution of such conditions as insulin resistance or even diabetes. And because things can seem too complicated when you first try to manage them, we decided to write this book to help you during your first stage of controlling your insulin resistance. Thus, by reading this book, you will find out more about: The concept of IR, symptoms and evolution Some myths about IR that need to be known as they are: just myths How to make (and follow!) a diet plan that respects the most common recommendations for a person with IR Ideas of simple and incredibly tasty recipes for you and the entire family These and many other aspects will be discussed in the inside of the book.

How I Got This Way chronicles the true story of growing up in the 1950s on a primitive farm. With very little knowledge of his own ancestors history, the author was inspired to record his own life history so that future generations of his family would understand How I Got This Way. He also felt that it was important to preserve a record of what it was like to grow up in a rural primitive farm setting so that a unique and important time in American history would not be lost forever. The lessons he learned throughout his childhood infl uenced the man he became through his years in the Navy and later as a Telephone Man. While some may feel that the farm life experienced was cruel and unforgiving, he would say that it taught him the values of hard work, responsibility, and a sense of ethics that provided great strength of character that served him well throughout his life. His story telling is mixed with humor and honesty as it uniquely describes his childhood experiences through the tender perspective of a child. It is the story of overcoming and loving life amid sometimes great diffi culties and trials. How I Got This Way is a poignant story of a life that few will have the opportunity to experience in the future.

This is a book about the industrialisation of the manufacture of sugar - by that date a key global commodity - on a 'remote' colonial frontier in the middle decades of the nineteenth century. Between the 1830s and the 1880s the Indonesian island of Java, then part of the Dutch colonial empire, drew away from all its erstwhile Asian counterparts to become the 'Oriental Cuba'.While the Caribbean island held the position (which it took over from Brazil c.1850) of the world's second largest supplier of cane sugar to international commodity markets, 'Dutch' Java emerged from almost now-where to take second place. The island had begun the nineteenth century as one of a number of centres - in fact, a rather minor one - of pre-industrial sugar production located in tropical and sub-tropical Asia from the Indian sub-continent through to the southernmost islands of Japan.It ended the century not only as by far the largest of Asia's producer-exporters of sugar but also - critically - as the sole example of the sustained and successful large-scale industrialisation of sugar manufacture anywhere in 'the East'. This book sets out to explain how and why this happened - and what its implications were for the long-term trajectory of the Java sugar industry in the international sugar economy.

European markets almost exclusively relied on Caribbean sugar produced by slave labor until abolitionist campaigns began around 1800. Thereafter, importing Asian sugar and transferring plantation production to Asia became a serious option for the Western world. In this book, Ulbe Bosma details how the British and Dutch introduced the sugar plantation model in Asia and refashioned it over time. Although initial attempts by British planters in India failed, the Dutch colonial administration was far more successful in Java, where it introduced in 1830 a system of forced cultivation that tied local peasant production to industrial manufacturing. A century later, India adopted the Java model in combination with farmers' cooperatives rather than employing coercive measures. Cooperatives did not prevent industrial sugar production from exploiting small farmers and cane cutters, however, and Bosma finds that much of modern sugar production in Asia resembles the abuses of labor by the old plantation systems of the Caribbean.

Leiden Sie an erhöhtem Blutzucker, Typ-2-Diabetes oder Übergewicht? Vielleicht sind Sie ständig durstig oder müssen häufig auf die Toilette. Vielleicht heilen Ihre Wunden nur langsam oder Sie sind ungewöhnlich müde. Oder Sie haben – was wesentlich wahrscheinlicher ist – gar keine Symptome. Millionen Menschen haben überhöhte Blutzuckerspiegel – und doch ahnen viele nichts davon. Als der Bestsellerautor und Ernährungsexperte Dr. Michael Mosley (»Fast Diet«, »Fast Fitness«) selbst die Diagnose Typ-2-Diabetes erhielt, begann er umgehend damit, sich mit dem wissenschaftlichen Zusammenhang zwischen Kalorien, Kohlenhydraten, Adipositas, Insulin und Diabetes zu beschäftigen. In seinem neuen Buch dreht sich alles um einen der wichtigsten Gradmesser unserer Gesundheit, den Blutzucker, um dessen heimtückischen Anstieg, der einem Typ-2-Diabetes vorausgeht – den sogenannten Prädiabetes – und um die regelrechte Diabetes-Epidemie, welche die Welt in den letzten Jahren erfasst hat. Aus seinen Forschungsergebnissen entwickelte er gemeinsam mit Diabetes-Spezialisten und Blutzucker-Experten eine Diätmethode, die Typ-2-Diabetes in nur acht Wochen umkehren und die den gefährlichen Prädiabetes am Fortschreiten hindern kann. Mit Selbsttest und 50 Rezepten.
