Featherhood (eBook, ePUB)
9,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is a story about birds and fathers.About the young magpie that fell from its nest in a Bermondsey junkyard into Charlie Gilmour's life - and swiftly changed it. Demanding worms around the clock, riffling through his wallet, sharing his baths and roosting in his hair... About the jackdaw kept at a Cornish stately home by Heathcote Williams, anarchist, poet, magician, stealer of Christmas, and Charlie's biological father who vanished from his life in the dead of night. It is a story about repetition across generations and birds that run in the blood; about a terror of repeating the sins of the father and a desire to build a nest of one's own. It is a story about change - from wild to tame; from sanity to madness; from life to death to birth; from freedom to captivity and back again, via an insane asylum, a prison and a magpie's nest. And ultimately, it is the story of a love affair between a man and a magpie.

Herding Hemingway's Cats: Understanding How Our...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The language of genes has become common parlance. We know they make your eyes blue, your hair curly, or your nose straight. The media tells us that our genes control the risk of cancer, heart disease, alcoholism, or Alzheimer's. The cost of DNA sequencing has plummeted from billions of dollars to a few hundred, and gene-based advances in medicine hold huge promise. So we've all heard of genes, but how do they actually work? According to legend, Ernest Hemingway was once given a six-toed cat by an old sea captain, and her distinctive descendants still roam the writer's Florida estate today. Scientists now know that the fault driving this profusion of digits lies in a tiny genetic control switch, miles away (in molecular terms) from the gene that "makes" toes. And it's the same mistake that gives rise to multi-toed humans too. There are 2.2 meters of DNA inside every one of your cells, encoding roughly 20,000 genes. These are the "recipes" that tell our cells how to make the building blocks of life, along with myriad control switches ensuring they're turned on and off at the right time and in the right place. But rather than a static string of genetic code, this is a dynamic, writhing biological library. And figuring out how it all works - how your genes make you, you - is a major challenge for researchers around the world. Drawing on stories ranging from six-toed cats and stickleback hips to wobbly worms and zombie genes, geneticist Kat Arney explores the how our genes work, creating a companion to the book of life itself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kat Arney. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/026241/bk_adbl_026241_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles!The Sago worm or Sago grub, is the larvae of the Sago Palm Weevil or Red Palm Weevil (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus). The worm lives and feeds on the starchy pulp of the trunk of the sago palm (after which it takes its name), which is common in the wetter freshwater swampy parts of Southeast Asia and Melanesia. The weevil has also been reported from China, Saudi Arabia (where it is an important pest of dates), Egypt, Iran and the United Arab Emirates. Sago worms have a plump, yellowy-cream body with a soft-ridged texture and a hard-shelled head. The body of the worm is covered by fine hair.

There's a Hair in My Dirt!
19,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Once upon a time in a place far away, lived a man named Gary Larson who used to draw cartoons. It was a cartoon that appeared for many years in daily newspapers and was loved by millions. (And was confusing to millions more.) But one day he stopped. Gary went into hiding. He made a couple short films. He played his guitar. He threw sticks for his dogs. They threw some back. Yet Gary was restless. He couldn't sleep nights. Something haunted him. (Besides Gramps.) Something that would return him to his roots in biology, drawing and dementia--a tale called There's a Hair in My Dirt! A Worm's Story. It begins a few inches underground, when a young worm, during a typical family dinner, discovers there's a hair in his plate of dirt. He becomes rather upset, not just about his tainted meal but about his entire miserable, wormy life. This, in turn, spurs his father to tell him a story--a story to inspire the children of invertebrates everywhere. And so Father Worm describes the saga of a fair young maiden and her adventuresome stroll through her favorite forest, a perambulator's paradise. It is a journey filled with mystery and magic. Or so she thinks. Which is all we'll say for now. What exactly does the maiden encounter? Does Son Worm learn a lesson? More important, does he eat his plate of fresh dirt? Well, you'll have to read to find out, but let's just say the answers are right under your feet. Written and illustrated in a children's storybook style, There's a Hair in My Dirt! A Worm's Story is a twisted take on the difference between our idealized view of Nature and the sometimes cold, hard reality of life for the birds and the bees and the worms (not to mention our own species). Told with his trademark off-kilter humor, this first original non--Far Side book is the unique work of a comic master. Now Larson can finally sleep at night. Question is, will you?

The Canadian Receipt Book
61,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

DELUXE CASEBOUND EDITION, IDEAL FOR GIFTS AND PERMANENT COLLECTIONSAt the time of Canadian Confederation, many Canadians were their own doctors, cooks, farmers, veterinarians, beekeepers, and even rat catchers. This survival guide, compiled fifteen decades ago, is a fascinating glimpse into Canadian life before modern conveniences. Melissa McAfee's fascinating preface notes that 'receipt' is an older term, a set of instructions not only for cooking, but also for medicine and food preservation. In The Canadian Receipt Book, these 'receipts' cover many tasks, some of which may seem hair-raising to the modern reader: removing worms from a cow's bronchial tubes may have been as important in 1867 as knowing how to make English-style tea cakes. Recipes for lemon pudding and rice 'snow-balls' are found in one chapter; remedies for pig leprosy and a cow's 'mad staggers' in another. The Receipt Book also contains business advertisements, a dizzying array from the moderately recognizable (insurance and jewellery) to the more dubious ( a 'drug warehouse' advertising'cocoaine' and 'liver syrup'). Set to become a classic of early Canadian cooking and household management alongside Catherine Parr Trail, this page-turning collection reminds Canadians of the long distance we have travelled in 150 years.
