Written by one of the world's foremost poultry keepers, with over 20 years of experience advising other poultry keepers on the health and wellbeing of their flock, The Healthy HensHandbook covers every angle of maintaining a healthy flock of chickens.

Written in Terry's down-to-earth style, this will be a classic work of reference for the nation's chicken keepers for many years to come.

This third volume in the Handbook of Food Science and Technology Set explains the processing of raw materials into traditional food (bread, wine, cheese, etc.). The agri-food industry has evolved in order to meet new market expectations of its products; with the use of separation and assembly technologies, food technologists and engineers now increasingly understand and control the preparation of a large diversity of ingredients using additional properties to move from the raw materials into new food products. Taking into account the fundamental basis and technological specificities of the main food sectors, throughout the three parts of this book, the authors investigate the biological and biochemical conversions and physicochemical treatment of food from animal sources, plant sources and food ingredients.

Von Beethoven bis Obama – 100 Jungs, die die Welt verändert haben! Jungs brauchen Vorbilder – heute mehr denn je. In diesem aufwändig gestalteten Buch finden sie über 100 ganz persönliche Geschichten von Künstlern, Wissenschaftlern, Umweltaktivisten, Fußballern, Politikern und Entdeckern – von großen und kleinen Helden aus der ganzen Welt und aus allen Epochen, die Grenzen überschritten haben und gegen den Strom geschwommen sind. Sie alle hatten den Mut, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen und so ihre Träume zu verwirklichen. Nach dem großen Erfolg von Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls gibt es nun endlich auch eine inspirierende Geschichtensammlung für Jungs. Autor Ben Brooks erzählt von Persönlichkeiten, die Erstaunliches erreicht und die Welt auf ihre Art ein Stück besser gemacht haben – jenseits von stereotypen Männlichkeitsbildern und Rollenklischees. Denn: Man muss sich nicht mit großen Kämpfern identifizieren, die Drachen töten und Prinzessinnen retten, um zum Helden zu werden. Dieses Buch zeigt, dass man auch als Querdenker, als sensibler oder introvertierter Junge Außergewöhnliches zu leisten vermag. Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different ist ein unvergleichliches Buch, randvoll gepackt mit Abenteuern, spannenden Geschichten und mancher Überraschung. Am wichtigsten jedoch: es bestärkt kleine und große Jungs darin, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. "Dieses Buch kann Leben retten. Dieses Buch kann Leben verändern. Dieses Buch kann dazu beitragen eine neue Generation von Jungs hervorzubringen, die es wagen ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen." - Benjamin Zephaniah Mit spannenden Biografien von großen Persönlichkeiten, wie: Ai Weiwei, Barack Obama, Benjamin Zephaniah, Bill Gates, Christopher Paolini, Confucius, Daniel Radcliffe, Galileo Galilei, Hans Scholl, Harvey Milk, Jamie Oliver, Jesse Eisenberg, Jim Henson, John Green, John Lennon, Lionel Messi, Louis Armstrong, Louis Braille, Ludwig van Beethoven, Mahatma Gandhi, Muhammad Ali, Nelson Mandela, Nikola Tesla, Oscar Wilde, Patch Adams, Ralph Lauren, Roald Dahl, Salvador Dalí, Siddhartha Gautama, Stephen Hawking, Steven Spielberg, Tank Man, Thomas Edison, Vincent van Gogh

Göttinnen altern nicht

Wie wir der Zeit die Macht nehmen, indem wir uns für die Fülle des Lebens entscheiden

Die Göttin in sich entdecken. Älterwerden ist nicht gleichbedeutend mit dem Verlust der Gesundheit, Schönheit oder dem Abgleiten in kulturelle Bedeutungslosigkeit. Niemand könnte das eindringlicher, überzeugender und leidenschaftlicher postulieren als die weltweit renommierte Gynäkologin und Bestsellerautorin Christiane Northrup. Bereits mit »Frauenkörper, Frauenweisheit« und »Weisheit der Wechseljahre« ermutigte sie unzählige Frauen, ihrem ureigenen intuitiven (Körper-) Wissen zu vertrauen. Nun führt sie in das Geheimnis der Alterslosigkeit ein. Dabei geht es ihr um nichts weniger als die Emanzipation von allen Vorurteilen der Gesellschaft gegenüber dem Älterwerden, von den Erwartungen »der anderen« und auch von den Einflüsterungen der Ärzte. Sie fordert dazu auf, endlich all das zu tun, was Frauen zu alterslosen Göttinnen macht: die Selbstheilungskräfte stärken, optimale Ernährung, u. a. mit Superfoods, die Freizeit erfüllend gestalten, sich der spirituellen Dimension öffnen – um maximal sinnlich, vital und freudvoll zu leben.
