Recent trends suggest a wide range of consumer concerns in food choice and consumption. Increasingly, buyers prefer organic and locally produced ingredients; good taste; high nutritional and medicinal value; and low-allergen factors. The humble seaweed, nature’s richest source of iodine and loaded with minerals, addresses all these concerns. In this combination cookbook and food guide, Crystal June Madeira explains the properties of each variety of seaweed—kombu, nori, arame, wakame, and dulse–and provides simple instructions for its preparation in delicious recipes such as Lime Cumin Aioli, Sautéed Wakame and Green Beans, Summer Chicken Soup with Sea Palm, and Baked Figs with Honey Lemon Thyme Sorbet. Seaweed’s healing properties in detoxifying the body, alleviating cramps, and lowering blood pressure, have been well documented. That factor, along with the absence of gluten and other allergy triggers, make these recipes ideal for anyone seeking improved health, as well as those who enjoy sea vegetables in Japanese cuisine and want to learn how they can eat them more often. Maderia includes current information on how to purchase local foods, and a directory of seaweed harvesters worldwide.

From one of our finest and most popular science writers, the best-selling author of Your Inner Fish, comes the answer to a scientific mystery story as big as the world itself: How have astronomical events that took place millions of years ago created the unique qualities of the human species? In his last book, Neil Shubin delved into the amazing connections between human anatomy—our hands, our jaws—and the structures in the fish that first took over land 375 million years ago. Now, with his trademark clarity and exuberance, he takes an even more expansive approach to the question of why we are the way we are. Starting once again with fossils, Shubin turns his gaze skyward. He shows how the entirety of the universe's 14-billion-year history can be seen in our bodies. From our very molecular composition (a result of stellar events at the origin of our solar system), he makes clear, through the working of our eyes, how the evolution of the cosmos has had profound effects on the development of human life on earth.

Deep South

One of the most acclaimed travel writers of our time turns his unflinching eye on an American South too often overlooked Paul Theroux has spent fifty years crossing the globe, adventuring in the exotic, seeking the rich history and folklore of the far away. Now, for the first time, in his tenth travel book, Theroux explores a piece of America -- the Deep South. He finds there a paradoxical place, full of incomparable music, unparalleled cuisine, and yet also some of the nation's worst schools, housing, and unemployment rates. It's these parts of the South, so often ignored, that have caught Theroux's keen traveler's eye. On road trips spanning four seasons, wending along rural highways, Theroux visits gun shows and small-town churches, laborers in Arkansas, and parts of Mississippi where they still call the farm up the road "the plantation." He talks to mayors and social workers, writers and reverends, the working poor and farming families -- the unsung heroes of the south, the people who, despite it all, never left, and also those who returned home to rebuild a place they could never live without. From the writer whose "great mission has always been to transport us beyond that reading chair, to challenge himself -- and thus, to challenge us" (Boston Globe), Deep South is an ode to a region, vivid and haunting, full of life and loss alike.

Mapping the Deep: The Extraordinary Story of Ocean Science

Author: Robert Kunzig
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
ISBN: 0393345351
Category: Nature
Page: 352
View: 9731
A vivid, up-to-date tour of the Earth's last frontier, a remote and mysterious realm that nonetheless lies close to the heart of even the most land-locked reader. The sea covers seven-tenths of the Earth, but we have mapped only a small percentage of it. The sea contains millions of species of animals and plants, but we have identified only a few thousand of them. The sea controls our planet's climate, but we do not really understand how. The sea is still the frontier, and yet it seems so familiar that we sometimes forget how little we know about it. Just as we are poised on the verge of exploiting the sea on an unprecedented scale—mining it, fertilizing it, fishing it out—this book reminds us of how much we have yet to learn. More than that, it chronicles the knowledge explosion that has transformed our view of the sea in just the past few decades, and made it a far more interesting and accessible place. From the Big Bang to that far-off future time, two billion years from now, when our planet will be a waterless rock; from the lush crowds of life at seafloor hot springs to the invisible, jewel-like plants that float at the sea surface; from the restless shifting of the tectonic plates to the majestic sweep of the ocean currents, Kunzig's clear and lyrical prose transports us to the ends of the Earth. Originally published in hardcover as The Restless Sea. "Robert Kunzig is a creator of what oceanographer Harry Hess once referred to as 'geopoetry.' He covers vast tracts of time and space and makes his subjects electrifying."—Richard Ellis, The Times [London] "The Restless Sea immediately surfaces at the top of the list of journalistic treatments of oceanography. . . .The book opened my eyes to numerous wonders."—Richard Strickland, American Scientist "When you head for the coast this summer, leave that trashy beach novel at home. Instead, pack Robert Kunzig's book. Because just beyond your rental cottage lies the restless sea, where three-mile-tall mountain ranges criss-cross the ocean floor, and deep trenches harbor mysterious creatures. . . . The book is easy to read, and will bring you up to date on the startling discoveries oceanographers have made during the past few decades."—Phillip Manning, The News and Observer [Raleigh, North Carolina] ] "Anyone who loves the sea should read this book."—Sebastian Junger

Thirteen Stories

Category: Fiction
Page: 352
View: 3177
"Thomas Jeffrey Vasseur steeps us in a disappearing rural South, the New South, and the world at large. Here is true narrative variety: a little boy discovers the wonder and allure of flight; a ballet dancer from Texas falls in love; a Kentucky choir minister adopts a troublesome son; a German woman transplanted to the Deep South finally grasps the emotional needs of her teenage daughter. These tales of passion are full of peril, a recurrent awareness of mortality, the gaps that separate all people and threaten to separate them further from those they love." "The landscape may be a church in Kentucky, the battlefields of Southeast Asia, the Oregon coast or an airplane in flight. But all of these stories are linked by the theme of self-discovery and the awareness of others, culminating with the title novella where a Southern native meets a Vietnam Veteran who takes him to French Polynesia then an island in Fiji to repair a hurricane-damaged sailboat. This debut collection devotes itself to sense of place, both personal and collective history, some lyrical and some hard truths about the regions and locales that inspired it." "Ultimately, the novella looks closely at our country's ongoing attitudes toward race, class, spirituality, our globe's endangered natural environment, the aftermath of the Vietnam war and 1960s as a whole. In its variety of modes and themes - city versus country life, sexual desire and parenthood, our very American pursuit of earthly happiness and our resilient faith in God, Discovering the World: Thirteen Stories is a collection that probes the nooks and crannies of the human heart."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

In Seeing in the Dark, a poetic love letter to science and to the skies, Timothy Ferris invites us all to become stargazers. He recounts his own experiences as an enthralled lifelong amateur astronomer and reports from around the globe -- from England and Italy to the Florida Keys and the Chilean Andes -- on the revolution that's putting millions in touch with the night sky. In addition, Ferris offers an authoritative and engaging report on what's out there to be seen -- what Saturn, the Ring nebula, the Silver Coin galaxy, and the Virgo supercluster really are and how to find them. The appendix includes star charts, observing lists, and a guide on how to get involved in astronomy. Ferris takes us inside a major revolution sweeping astronomy, as lone amateur astronomers, in global networks linked by the Internet, make important discoveries that are the envy of the professionals. His ability to describe the wonders of the universe is simply magical, and his enthusiasm for his subject is irresistible.
