Описание: Terra preta is the Portuguese name of a type of soil which is thought to have almost miraculous properties. The newspapers are flooded with reports about "black gold," scientists believe that two of the greatest problems facing the world - climate change and the hunger crisis -- can be solved by it. The beauty of it is that everyone can do something about it because since 2005 the secret of producing this black soil has been revealed -- and it is a secret that seemed to have been lost forever with the downfall of the once thriving Indian culture of the Amazon basin. The recipe is astonishingly simple as all you need are kitchen or garden wastes, charcoal and earthworms, so it can be produced on every balcony or on the smallest of garden plots. The authors set off on a treasure hunt and condensed all the knowledge about the world's most fertile soil into a convenient guidebook. In addition to a sound instruction manual on producing terra preta and organic charcoal (biochar), the handbook covers fundamental principles from climate farming to closed-loop economy. It makes a passionate plea against synthetic fertilizers and genetic technology
Описание: Titles Are Hard, but College Doesn't Have to Be is a book written to help you navigate and make sense of the sometimes challenging period of time that is your freshman year of college. At the same time, though, people take life too seriously. So to help ease the mood, Titles Are Hard approaches the subject of going to college with a tone of general lightheartedness. The pages of this book are filled with insight acquired through real-life experience, discussion, and reflection of how to effectively and successfully make your way through your early time in college while also peppering in a joke here or there to help keep you reminded that this isn't a textbook, and it is possible to enjoy reading. The book is split up into three major sections. The first is about how to successfully adapt and live in the new environment that going off to college leads you to because living effectively is pretty important to being able to do anything else effectively. The second section focuses on the academic portion of college. Not everyone took high school seriously, but college offers a chance to realign how schoolwork is handled. Some helpful tips and nudges may just be the thing to set yourself on the right track. Finally the last section of the book is meant to cover all the nooks and crannies that stray outside of simply living and studying. By the book's end, the hope of the author is that you, the reader, feels a bit more equipped as well as encouraged to be able to go out and make the most of that first year of working toward your degree. So whether you pick up and give this book a read or pass on by, just keep in mind that summing up a book within a small title can be hard, but going off to college doesn't have to be.
