              Diet for a New America: How Your Food Choices Affect Your Health, Happiness, and the Future of Life on Earth (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 25th Anniversary ed.)

              John Robbins awakened the conscience of a nation and spearheaded a movement with this book, as Rachel Carson had before him, and as Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser have done in his wake. Robbins revealed the inhumane conditions under which food animals are raised and his insigh...ts into the moral price we pay for this system of suffering are unparalleled. Drawing a clear line between a meat-based diet and both contemporary medical conditions and ecological crises, Robbins, in what Frances Moore Lappe called a tender, not strident voice, makes perhaps the most eloquent argument for vegetarianism ever published. Robbins walked away from his family business -- the Baskin-Robbins ice cream empire -- to pursue his dream of a society healthy because it practices compassionate stewardship of a balanced ecosystem. By pioneering our understanding of the Great American Food Machine, he has done more than most to realize that dream.

Praise for previous titles by John Robbins: The work encompasses so many moods, and is funny as well as harrowing as well as challenging - often all at once! - Ilya, editor The Mammoth Book Of Cult Comics. Robbins has always been fond of dramatic, horrific twists in his stories, but now he's balancing them with restraint, humour and a real sense of humanity, twisted as it may be. - Rob Kirby, High-Low. A beautiful reconstruction of an identity that never existed - a fiction writer taking one step back in a life of his own. - Nadja Sayej, Broken Pencil.

              The utility and benefits of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are emerging and being recognized across the aviation industry. While this technology is not new, the ability to support domestic public and private operators is becoming better understood and opening up new uses to gove...rnment organizations and commercial enterprise. Analysis of the unmanned aviation market indicates that small UAS (sUAS) will become the most prevalent and affordable form of unmanned aircraft available, featuring technology developed by contributors ranging from DIY and hobby model aircraft communities to defense contracting. This book will help readers understand what a drone or UAS is, what forms are available (including multirotor, fixed-wing, and hybrid types), to make well-informed decisions regarding purchase and use. Readers will learn how sUAS and their various configuration options can be used to address or support evolving business needs. Ultimately, readers will have enough information to formulate a plan to acquire necessary certification approvals and operate sUAS in a safe, efficient, and effective manner. Beginning with the history of UAS and ending with how to prepare for the future of this fast-paced and innovative industry, this book contains descriptions of typical sUAS architecture, related technology, common uses, and suggested safety practices, while also providing a narrative to help you determine the most appropriate path forward through complex legal, business, operational, and support considerations. Understanding how these pieces fit together, from the technical and legal perspectives, will shape your own strategy for the safe, efficient, and effective use of this (r)evolutionary technology. The authors developed this book to share critical background, concepts, guidance, and lessons learned from their collective experience as researchers, operators, and academic instructors to dispel common myths and provide a starting point to explore how sUAS can be applied to

              As we travel down the road of life, we get to meet and build relationships with all types of people. Some are very easy to get to know and simply a joy to be around; others may be more of a challenge, and we find it difficult to get very close to them. Is it our fault or theirs? ...Many times, we dont stop to consider how others perceive us. We just trod along, living our lives, making some folks like us while others despise us. Have you ever considered how you stack up? Do others like you and want to spend as much time as possible with you? Or do they go out of their way to avoid being in your presence? In this book, I identify many of the different personality traits of individuals that I have encountered in my life. Some characteristics stand alone, while other may overlap. Perhaps you will find yourself in a number of these. I did! It has often been said, You must first identify the problem before you can go about solving it. As you read this book, try to pick out traits about yourself that you would like to modify or even eliminate. Keep in mind that you may also find traits that you want to improve or develop. It is hard to take an in-depth look at ourselves. Hopefully, this book will help you to do so and encourage you to make positive changes.
