Genetically Modified Foods VS. Sustainability - Bruno McGrath

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." - Albert Einstein
This ebook points out the surrounding issues of genetically modified fruit and vegetables that consumers are unaware of. While several parties defend the use of technology to create food, it appears that little is being done to increase awareness about this matter to the end consumer.
It also points out alternative food sustainability options such as organic farming and land management. This ebook will indicate that although some parties agree that genetically modified food items are cost effective and considered safe, its long-term results have not been adequately researched and the use of pesticides on these items are far higher than for other types farming or food products.

Rating - R
4.3 (150 reviews)
Free until 30 April 2013
A deeper, darker E.T. A tear jerker featuring the love of an alien creature and the lives he touches.
The series "Species Intervention #6609" spans two hundred years, encompassing tender love between divergent species, political downfalls and violence of unspeakable order. It is an unfortunate tale of Armageddon and the despairing hope of redemption.
In Baby, Netty is a naive teenage farm girl given in marriage to an older brutal opportunist disguised as a successful citizen during the years of Prohibition in Sussex County, New Jersey. After years of enslavement, Netty flees into the night from her rapist husband, traveling back to the farm worked by her parents, where she rescues an unfamiliar damaged creature she finds in a cave in the woods of her childhood, falling in love with the enigmatic creature she names Baby. Together they find happiness and fulfillment despite the changes to Netty's body wrought by the proximity of the unusual creature.
When a handsome Italian stranger comes into Netty's life, complications ensue as she falls in love while trying to hide the bizarre and wondrous changes to her farm and her body. Netty, Baby and Wil strive to conquer obstacles thrown in their path by life, succeeding wildly until the heart-rending and astonishingly brutal climax to their story.
Silence After The Storm - Adrian R. Magnuson
Genre - Literary Fiction
Rating - R
4.3 (6 reviews)
Free until 3 May 2013
A five-hundred-acre island is a small place when its inhabitants are at odds, and both inside and outside forces throw them together. Roger Whitney needs to find forgiveness for past mistakes, in and out of bed, but keeps making them. Kit Wales needs a father, but another woman is in the way and her mother doesn’t seem to care. She’s got bigger problems, money problems, and no way to solve them except for a sketchy and dangerous plan that seems destined to backfire. Then there’s Joe. Still on patrol in Nam. Still looking for his buddy.
“Silence After the Storm is an intriguing tale and a worthy follow-on to Adrian Magnuson’s debut novel, Taking Flight. The combinations of love in Silence are odd, numerous, complicated and engaging. We see into Roger’s heart and mind – he speaks to us even when, literally, he cannot speak. His is the first person voice, but the author also gives us the perspectives of the other “inmates” on Limpia Island.
I’ll never forget spirited Kit, mysterious Allie, wise Doc, lost Joe, stranded Lea and toughest of them all, island owner, Kat Wales – the sixth generation of Kat’s to command, protect, and frustrate all island dwellers. And let me not forget to mention Mr. B, Magnuson’s first portrayal of Man’s Best Friend – a not-so-Golden Doodle whose antics help connect the other characters in ways they could not have imagined.
Jack in the Box - Hanna Allen
Genre - Mystery
Rating - PG18
4.3 (6 reviews)
Free until 3 May 2013
London, 2000. When DCI Von Valenti is called to investigate the murder of Max Quincey, her Chief Superintendent’s actor brother, she is struck by the resemblance of the modus operandi to that of unsolved murders in Soho fifteen years before. Those murders, known as the ‘Jack in the Box murders’ because of the mutilated Jack in the Box left at the scene of the crime, were of young male prostitutes who were blinded and strangled. At the time, a play, ‘Jack in the Box’, was running in London’s West End, directed by Max Quincey himself, and Von has not failed to notice that Quincey’s murder coincides with the play’s return.
But when she and her number two, DI Steve English, begin their investigation, no-one will tell her anything about Quincey’s murder and everyone is lying about the past. Von soon finds herself being drawn more and more to the case of the rent boys. Can she penetrate the wall of silence and find what links the present to the past?
Superfood Legumes - Karen Groves
Genre - Cookbook
Rating - G
4.4 (14 reviews)
Free until 3 May 2013
Nutrient dense legumes (beans) can help your body produce and maintain healthy muscles, bones, organs, digestive tracts and brain functions. They are high in protein and can improve your cardiovascular health, help prevent cancer and more. They may be called 'Super Beans.'
This e-book is a guide to the most nutrient dense beans you can buy.
I teach you about Superfoods because, unfortunately, most of our food supply is junk
, contaminated with pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and other dangerous substances, so we need to be careful with what we put in our bodies. For better health, we should be eating organic, natural, grass fed or wild caught foods – Superfoods.
You'll learn what is 'organic' and 'natural.' I'll teach you how beans and other superfoods, in general, can be combined with different foods and eaten for the greatest benefit.
Note that most beans should be cooked or sprouted before eating. Some beans should never be eaten raw because they will cause illness. Notations in this e-book indicate which beans must be cooked.
Virtual Assistant Assistant - Nick Loper
Genre - Non Fiction
Rating - G
4.8 (19 reviews)
Free until 30 April 2013
Virtual Assistant Assistant is the book for entrepreneurs who are looking for a way to take their business to the next level. If you've ever caught yourself thinking there just aren't enough hours in the day, there is a solution.
And it won’t make you go broke, either.
Virtual assistants are essentially telecommuting contractors to your business. This book tells you everything you need to know about virtual assistants, including:
  • Where to find the best ones
  • How to hire them
  • Best practices for working with them on an ongoing basis
    It’s written from firsthand experience, NOT theoretical or academic fluff. You’ll learn how a talented virtual assistant can help save you time, money, and headache.
    Take control of your entrepreneurial life and learn how to effectively outsource your non-essential tasks. You’ll free up hours every day to focus on what’s really important. In the end, virtual assistants can help you lead a happier, healthier, and more productive and stress-free life.
    It's possible (and I would argue essential) to unload many aspects of your day-to-day work, leaving you free to tackle the higher-level, strategic, and money-making projects that often get neglected.
Shark & the Wold - Daniel D. Shields
Genre - Science Fiction
Rating - G
4.0 (27 reviews)
Free until 29 April 2013
Pack your bags for the wild side and hang on tight! Stamp your passport for adventure and enter an exotic world where animals have evolved side by side with humans. Prepare to be transported into an Indiana Jones style adventure and taken on a globe-trotting trek from the vast open plains of Africa, to the breathtaking beaches of Key West and Fiji, to the mysterious jungles of South America, before finally landing inside the gates of Sin City itself - Las Vegas, Nevada. Suspend belief and lose yourself in this roller coaster of a sci-fi thriller that has been called a cross between Planet of the Apes, The Hunger Games and Indiana Jones.
In Las Vegas, Shaw, billionaire casino magnate and self proclaimed world's greatest showman, nears completion on the massive Serengeti Resort & Casino. Its amphitheater is being transformed into an authentic slice of African savanna for the show Predators and Prey which will savagely pit animal against animal in the bloodiest gladiatorial spectacle ever created for human entertainment. The only thing missing is the main attraction - which Shaw soon finds in Shark, the world's only Great White pool-playing shark to be exact.
Shaw envisions the show's tagline as "Come One - Come All To See - The Only Great White Shark In Captivity" but soon learns that capturing the world's top predator and delivering him to Vegas is easier said than done. This daunting task will require the cruel tactics of the evil animal slave trading hyena, Old Jack. The heartbreaking plans they devise and innocent pawns they use to try to coerce Shark's allegiance will force all to rely on primitive instincts to survive.

Tollesbury Time
Nothing is real
And there's nothing
To get hung about

sing the children...
In September 2008 I accompanied the police as they entered a house in Tollesbury. I was a psychiatric nurse at the time. The owner of the house was one of my patients. He had not been seen for two weeks - neither had his wife or his son.
What I saw that evening will stay with me forever. On the walls of the lounge, in tiny, neat black writing, were thousands and thousands of words. The torch beams picked them out as if they were groups of well-ordered flies. The words continued up the stairway, onto the landing walls and into the main bedroom. I had been in the house before and had seen some of the writing upstairs. Still I was mesmerised.
What you are about to read are the words that I saw on those walls...
Tollesbury Time
Nothing is real
And there's nothing
To get hung about
