              An eye-opening look into why our bodies work--or don't--the way they do. From blurry vision to crooked teeth, ACLs (anterior cruciate ligaments) that tear at alarming rates and spines that seem to spend a lifetime falling apart, it's surprising that human beings have beaten the o...dds as a species. After all, we're the only survivors on our branch of the tree of life. Why do human mothers have such a life-endangering experience giving birth? And why are there entire medical specialties for teeth and feet? In this funny, wide-ranging and often surprising book, biologist Alex Bezzerides tells us from where we inherited our adaptable, achy, brilliant bodies in the process of evolution. The book traces the delightfully unexpected answers to these questions and many more: - Why do we blink? - Why don't our teeth regularly fit in our mouths? - Why do women menstruate when so many other mammals don't? - Why did humans stand up on two legs in the first place?

              Fast Carbs, Slow Carbs: The Simple Truth about Food, Weight, and Disease (Audio CD / Audio, Library Edition)

              In this urgent sequel to his New York Times bestseller The End of Overeating--a call to arms that will change the way we eat--Dr. David A. Kessler explains why Americans suffer in unprecedented numbers from obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and other debilitating illnesses, and o...ffers concrete solutions for reducing cardiovascular problems, keeping weight off, and curtailing chronic disease.The American body is in trouble. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States today, and millions are plagued by conditions like obesity and diabetes. But we have the answer to improving health and longevity: 1) cut out fast carbs (processed foods); 2) reduce saturated fats; 3) exercise regularly. Though the solution is simple, the difficulty lies in the food we eat. Multi-billion-dollar processing plants and food manufacturers dot the heartland and work to increase the profits of the industrialized farming business--Big Agriculture--that produces excess corn and wheat. Today, we are being fed highly palatable, ultra-processed carbohydrates as food products--fast carbs--that are often marketed as healthy. Fast carbs are primarily starches and sugars produced during food processing and are present in much of what we eat. By destroying the healthy structure of whole food and increasing the amount of rapidly digestible starch it contains, these products bypass our body's metabolic pathways. When combined with the ill-effects of saturated fats, we are putting ourselves on a collision course with weight gain, insulin resistance, digestive issues, heart disease, and more. The problem is, most of us don't know where these fast carbs and saturated fats lurk in our daily diets. Accessible and eye-opening, Fast Carbs, Slow Carbs provides the information we need to understand exactly what we are eating--and to learn the truth about what it being sold to us as healthy food. Rising above the confusing range of specific popular diets--Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean, Vegan, V

              Fair Pay: How to Get a Raise, Close the Wage Gap, and Build Stronger Businesses (Audio CD / Audio)

              An expert takes on the crisis of income inequality, addressing the problems with our current compensation model, demystifying pay practices, and providing practical information employees can use when negotiating their salaries and discussing how we can close the gender and racial... pay gap. American workers are suffering economically and fewer are earning a living wage. The situation is only worsening. We do not have a common language to talk about pay, how it works at most companies, or a cohesive set of practical solutions for making pay more fair. Most blame the greed of America's executive class, the ineptitude of government, or a general lack of personal motivation. But the negative effects of income inequality are a problem that can be solved. We don't have to choose between effective government policy and the free market, between the working class and the job creators, or between socialism and capitalism, David Buckmaster, the Director of Global Compensation for Nike, argues. We do not have to give up on fixing what people are paid. Ideas like Universal Basic Income will not be enough to avoid the severe cultural disruption coming our way. Buckmaster examines income inequality through the design and distribution of income itself. He explains why businesses are producing no meaningful wage growth, regardless of the unemployment rate and despite sitting on record piles of cash and the lowest tax rates[0] in a generation . He pulls back the curtain on how corporations make decisions about wages and provides practical solutions--as well as the corporate language--workers need to get the best results when talking about money with a boss. The way pay works now will not overcome our most persistent pay challenges, including low and stagnant wages, unequal pay by race and gender, and executive pay levels untethered from the realities of the average worker. The compensation system is working as designed, but that system is broken. Fair Pay opens the corporate black box

              Accountable: The Rise of Citizen Capitalism (Audio CD / Audio)

              By O'Leary, Michael; Valdmanis, Warren; Read by Knezevich, Joe

              • Not Yet Available

              In this eye-opening and provocative book, Michael O'Leary and Warren Valdmanis take a groundbreaking journey to the beating heart of our economy, where they reveal why capitalism is failing our country, explore the flaws that make our current solutions insufficient, and propose a...n ambitious and compelling vision to rebuild our corporations around a deeper purpose.Capitalism is broken, but the tools we are relying on to fix it--corporate social responsibility, divestment, impact investing, and government control--risk making things worse, argue two iconoclastic impact investors. The cynics are those blinded by the defunct ideology that private vice makes for public virtue, that any effort to make markets more moral is empty marketing to make more money. The fools are those who ignore economic reality, preferring to chase false utopias than confront the role for-profit corporations must play in our society. And the pioneers? They are the visionary few cutting through the BS to push out the frontier of responsible capitalism. The root of the problem is the nexus between business owners and managers. Until we change the mandate that owners give to their companies, reform will prove superficial. We need to re-charter our companies to maximize profit only in pursuit of some deeper social purpose--health care companies should heal us, food companies should nourish us, finance companies should enrich us. We need to empower boards as independent stewards of that purpose and rebuild our corporations to profit only in ways that benefit society and the environment. Markets are only as amoral as we are. If we, as individuals, expect the economy to reflect our values, we must re-integrate our moral and economic lives. We must combine the civic duty of citizenship with the free market. In this trenchant and revelatory exploration, O'Leary and Valdmanis offer three strikingly original rules that would harness competition to make capitalism both prosperous and good.

              The Drop Lib/E: How the Most Addictive Sport Can Help Us Understand Addiction and Recovery (Audio CD / Audio, Library Edition)

              In this revelatory and original book, award-winning author of the acclaimed surf memoir On a Wave illuminates the connection between waves, addiction, and recovery, exploring what surfing can teach us about the powerful undertow of addictive behaviors and the ways to swim free of... them. Addiction is arguably the dominant feature of contemporary life: sex, gambling, exercise, eating, shopping, Internet use--there's virtually no pleasurable activity that can't morph into a destructive obsession. For Americans under the age of fifty-five, the leading cause of death is drug overdose. But there is another side of addiction. In some instances, the very activities that can lead to addiction can also lead out of it. As neurologists have recently discovered, surfing is a kind of study in the mechanism of addiction, delivering dopamine to the pleasure center of the brain and reshaping priorities and desire in a feedback loop of narrowing focus. Thad Ziolkowski knows this dynamic intimately. A lifelong surfer, he has been surrounded by addiction since his boyhood. In this unique, groundbreaking book, part addiction memoir, part sociological study, part spiritual odyssey, Ziolkowski dismantles the myth of surfing as a radiantly wholesome lifestyle immune to the darker temptations of the culture and discovers among the rubble a new way to understand and ultimately overcome addiction. Combining his own story with insights from scientists, progressive thinkers and the experiences of top surfers and addicts from around the world, Ziolkowski shows how getting on a board and catching a wave is a unique and deeply instructive means of riding out of the darkness and back into the light. Yet while surfing is his salvation, its lessons can applied to other activities that can pull us free from the lethal undertow of addiction and save lives.
