I am fresh to the field of Agricultural Health and Safety, " Agricultural Medicine: Rural Occupational and Environmental Health, Safety, and Prevention" is a must have. This book provides a solid foundation for those in the health and safety field, which contains public health, occupational health, basic care, family medicine and a lot of other fields who with those in farming, agriculture and rural communities. This book provides a well written documented history of the Agricultural Health and Safety field, as has several national and international co-authors who are as experts in the field as well. Donham and Thelin have done a unbelievable job capturing key health and safety problems and provided an perfect reference for those serving this population. Highly Recommended!
Vandana Shiva is brilliant, tireless and unflinchingly direct in her recent book about the corporate meal chain. As with some of her other titles, I had to read this slowly, because there is so much crucial info on every page, it takes time to absorb. Her reporting and conclusions about how poorly the modern globe feeds itself is so convincing, it becomes a call to action for anyone with a conscience. What I liked about this particular title of hers was the inclusion of a thoughtful alternative to agribusiness, something attainable and sustainable, with better outcomes for people and planet. Highly recommended.
After realizing so much hurt has been done I am not a fan of huge corporate agribusiness greed. Instead I vote with my meal dollars for more locally grown, sustainably grown organic, nonGMO slow foods.Who Really Feeds the Globe os a amazing insight into the globe of corporate sourced food. A must read for those who are part of the March Versus Monsanto and anyone interested in the slow meal movement.
Dr. Vandana Shiva books are a wealth of information. Her style is articulate, simple to understand, and right to the point. This book is Inspiring, motivating, and a true eye opener! A reading must for every parent and health conscious consumer.
Vandana Shiva is a polarizing figure, and the topics she writes and lectures about--the role and effects of industrial agriculture (for example, synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, monocropping, genetic engineering)--are polarized subjects. Having worked in the field for some time, I've discovered that most people with at least some familiarity with the topic matter have powerful opinions. There are those who are attached to the idea of themselves as being "rational" and "scientific" (as opposed to other people whom they view as overly emotional, lacking in an appreciation of the "science," and eye-rollingly Fresh Age). Such people tend to believe that there's not only nothing wrong with industrial agriculture, but it's critically important in to "feed the world," and its benefits to humanity are well-grounded in "the science." Some of these people go so far as to believe that those who may disagree with them are responsible for the starvation of those not good souls who have not yet been given the bonus of genetically engineered crops and modern en there are other people who believe that organic or biodynamic or related farming methods are the method to go, that synthetic fertilizers and pesticides are not only toxic but unnecessary if one knows how to grow meal without them, that genetically engineered seed is a scheme made by agrochemcial companies to chemicals and monopolize the world's seed supply through patenting, and that large-scale starvation is more a product of politically-driven lack of meal distribution rather than inability to grow enough of it. Vandana Shiva is outspokenly in this latter my experience these two camps search small common ground; each considers the other fundamentally misinformed, if not outright evil. Therefore, the likelihood that anyone already in the first camp will even read, or if they do, agree with, anything in any book written by Vandana Shiva is, in my view, very slight. So the shop for this book consists of those who really have no powerful opinions on these topics and can read it with an begin mind, or the choir which is satisfied to have their view confirmed by Dr. Shiva in her typically passionate and articulate way.I've met Dr. Shiva and heard her speak more than once, and happen to agree with much of what she says, despite the fact that I have a science background. So I found this book a valuable summary of some of the most necessary dynamics at play in the meal production system. Chapter by chapter, Dr. Shiva explains why the methods of industrial agriculture do far more hurt than amazing in terms of actually feeding people in a sustainable way. I recommend it to anyone who hasn't already decided that the most reliable source of info about meal production is Monsanto.
Like Shiva's a lot of other books on the topic of food, agriculture, seeds, and/or soil, this book provides an informed, passionate, reasonably well-written, and necessary critique of globalized agriculture and meal my lights, though, there is a lot of overlap/repetition in the books. Shiva has necessary messages to deliver, but she delivers the messages over and over and over again. I think that I have reached, and exceeded, the saturation ople who have not read (much) Shiva before are more likely to obtain more out of this, both content-wise and action-wise, than those who have read a number of Shiva's books. No hurt would come from starting here; still, I would recommend another of her very latest books, which focused on seeds, as perhaps a better starting place.
Who really feeds the world? Organic, local, little farms with diverse plants grown by women. Despite the ads, it's not huge industrial farms growing hybrid or GMO seeds and using pesticides and herbicides. The author takes a chapter for each subject and gives statistics that prove her points. I'm an organic hobby farmer and have seen much of what she's says is true. For example, our harvest-harming insects were initially at plague levels, but this issue has greatly decreased as I've nurtured the beneficial insects. I was hoping for a small more about how people in other parts of the globe do organic farming. While she did talk about countries from all over the world, she talked in general terms about what they traditionally did. She saved the specifics for what's wrong--why preventing the farmer from using seed from his own harvests is harmful, for example. Her focus was mostly on politic action to support protect biodiversity and e first chapter was about how viewing the earth as dead matter and the farmer as at battle has lead to the current problems. Chapter 2 was about why chemical fertilizers cause soil issues and how organic methods make healthy, productive soils. Chapter 3 was about how pesticides slay beneficial insects (including all-important pollinators) which throws things out of balance and makes the issues worse. Chapter 4 was about planting species together that promote each others growth instead of huge locations of only one crop. Chapter 5 was about how industrial agriculture contributes only 25% to the meal system while using 75% of the Earth's apter 6 was about how farmers have traditionally planted seeds saved from their own harvests and developed varieties that grew well locally, but corporations are using legal and political android games to force farmers to their seeds each year. Chapter 7 was about how locally suited plants grown to feed that country has prevented hunger but "free trade" agreements promoting subsidized commodities have destroyed this system in favor of growing crops for export (which has increased local hunger). Chapter 8 was about how, world-wide, women do most of the meal raising and preparation that feeds their family yet agriculture corporations overlook this contribution or belittle their knowledge in favor of what they're trying to sell.
Purchased as a homeschool book, but I take it to the high school to use when substitute teaching for Industrial Arts. This book is a must-have on our farm and in our shop. Not after graduation as I go back to it as a reference for welding and tool specs.
This book it a textbook for my college AGR 157 class, Introduction to Agricultural Mechanics. It is very basic, a type of textbook I would have expected to be associated with a eighth or ninth grade or ag class. Some terms and tool names are not correct, or conflict with the industry standard. For example, it uses the term "nut runners" for a tool that Craftman, Snap-On, Grainger, McMaster-Carr and all the industrial mechanics I've worked with call "nut drivers". The self evaluation questions at the end of each chapter have stuff that do not directly correlate with the given text. If one did not have familiar knowledge with the topic aready, these evaluations could be confusing at best. Some of the safety colors it says are used conflict with the industry standard. It says black and yellow are used for radiation, which is not true, yellow and magenta are the radiation colors. We use black and yellow for non forklift traffic zone boundaries. One positive of this book is that it does have good, and clearly, written procedures for the use of the equipment in which each chapter describes.
This application simply makes me feel safer. We as a whole do not live in the safest environment, however everytime I press that button I feel as if I am taking a criminal off the roads and putting them in a better life. This app makes the globe feel like a safer place. This application is the one step closer to paradise. I can't imagine life without it.
This application simply makes me feel unsafer. Everytime I press the button I feel as if I am giving a criminal their first gun. Everytime I hear those demonic noises, I check my windows and doors to create sure they are locked, I have been prescribed anxiety because of this app. This application is making this globe a worse put everytime you press that button. I am fairly certain that whenever that button is pushed a criminal's cell door is unlocked.
This application has one job to do... create the "doink doink" sound. Unfortunately the "doink doink" sample used in the application has so much static/background noise that out of a phone speaker it doesn't really sound like the all-impressive "doink doink" from the show. Sigh...
Just a few too a lot of ads, but I created a YouTube video with it! It works and you don't have to anything to use it, unlike a voice recorder I downloaded and deleted in 5sec. All in all, I like it. Also sunshine and Isabella, if you're gonna call someone an idiot, learn to spell idiot ok?
It's mandatory. The book is amazing but I only have it because it is needed by my Professor as well as written by my Professor. For me it is just something about the Kindle that is a small frustrating... such as zone number instead of page number. But all in all the book serves it purpose.
Used this and scared away some criminals before they could do their poor things. I would like to thank the application maker, as the application maker may have saved a. Of grief and heartache. Also it save me a lot too. I didn't have to go testify or speak to the cops or anything. In all I feel a lot safer. Thanks for that.
"In the criminal justice system, sexually based offences are considered especially heinous. In Fresh York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite team know as the Unique Victims Unit. These are there stories..."
This application could not have taken that much effort. Including ads seems like a money grab and probably violates NBC Universal copyright. Wouldn't be so poor except you can't the button because a full screen ad you are supposed to tap accidentally comes up.
This was exactly what I required So I work on camp staff at a boy scout summer camp and a camper decided I "needed" a massage so he walks up behind me without me noticing and he turns on careless whisper and throws his phone on the table and begins giving me a massage when I turn around and notice him another camper who had this application presses the button and I could not stop laughing
I have a baby bunny that's very sweet. She's my whole world. I think it's a she because it's so soft. This application saved my bunny from a grizzly bear with herpes. I mean the bear had herpes. I don't mean the application used herpes to save my bunny from the bear. I don't think the application even has the herps... This application is my hero. I will never stop pressing the button because I am Desmond from Lost.
I was ran by a rapist to an alley and was in danger of being anally raped. I pushed the Law and Order button and the rapist was engulfed in fear, showing a look of fear as if he saw the devil in flesh. He turned and ran away like a track star. THANK YOU NERUDAPPS!!!!!!
Amazing Ebook, simple to read and understand. I like the Ebook especially as you can book tag and highlight necessary sections as well as create flashcards for each chapter. This is a well organized book and the find button is unbelievable for quizzes or just searching for content to write a paper. You can add it to you ipad, laptop or phone for simple access without having to lug a book around. Probably one of the better books I've read for my BSN.
THIS APP IS LIKE A SWISS ARMY KNIFE IN MY LIFE. WHEN I WANNA DATE A MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRL... PRESS DA BUTTON !!! WHEN I FEEL LIKE RUBBIN ONE OUT IN THE DRESSING ROOM AT THE SHOPPING MALL... PRESS DA BUTTON!!! When IM AT WORK COOKING AND I GET REALLY WORKED UP CUZ THAT DOWN SYNDROM GIRL IS WORKING AND I'M REALLY HIGH ON METH AND I GO INTO THE WALK IN REFRIGERATOR AND I... you probly dont wanna know that... BUT HELL YEAH I SAVE A FORTUNE ON HAND LOTION AND KLEANEX TISSUE... AND "RANCH DRESSING" ;D
This application does wonders, and i'm not only saying that. one day, while walking home from the shop at 11 pm, I walked past an alley and in that alley was a man that jumped out and screamed "GIMME YO MONEY" I of course didn't know what to do, So I vigorously stabbed this button over and over again next to his ear, he had no idea, he shat himself and ran away like a baby. 10/10 saved my life, so I know it'll save yours.
Heard from some mates that this is even better protection than a taser so I decided to test it out. Not only do I feel 100 percent safer walking down the road in the middle of the night to go obtain chocolate milk from the nearby circle k, but once I avoided getting robbed, simply by pressing this button. 1010 will reccoemdn
