We’ve been tantalised by the idea of eternal youth since time immemorial. We’re always asking how we can live longer and better. Or, to put it another way, why can’t we all be like Madame Calment, who cycled till she was 100, smoked till she was 117 and died at the wonderfully old age of 122? Join veteran reporter Bill Gifford for a rip-roaring ride along the trail to the fountain of youth. Meet the scientists who have doubled the life expectancy of mice by knocking out a single gene and others, like Aubrey De Grey, who says our children could go on to live for 1,000 years or maybe 5,000. An intoxicating mixture of deep reporting, fascinating science, and prescriptive takeaway, Spring Chicken will reveal the extraordinary breakthroughs that may yet bring us eternal youth while exposing dangerous deceptions that prey on the innocent and ignorant.

Madame Royale daughter of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette ab 15.49 € als Taschenbuch: her youth and marriage. Aus dem Bereich: Bücher, Taschenbücher, Geist & Wissen,
Balzac’s universally loved novel explores the great theme of money and its effect on the human character. Old Goriot is a lodger at Madame Vauquer’s Parisian boarding house. At first, his wealth inspires respect, but as his circumstances are reduced, he is gradually shunned. He moves into smaller and less desirable rooms in the house, and soon his only remaining visitors are two beautiful young women. The mystery as to who they are and what is happening to Goriot’s fortune involves several other boarders, including Rastignac, an ambitious youth who hopes to rise in society. With its complicities and alliances, mysteries and betrayals, passions and ambitions, the house becomes a microcosm of the grasping Parisian society of the 1820s - a perfect setting for Balzac’s masterful portrayal of La Comédie humaine, the whole comedic parade of human life. HONORÉ DE BALZAC (1799–1850), was born in Tours, France, educated at the Collège de Vendôme, and studied law at the Sorbonne. His father wished him to become a lawyer, but he left Tours in 1819 to seek his fortune as an author in Paris. He wrote eighty-five novels in twenty years, but his life was one of frequent privation. In 1850, he married Madame Hanska, a rich Polish lady with whom he had corresponded for more than fifteen years but had only just met in person. Five months later, Balzac died in Paris. 1.

From the moment Rebekah McTavish meets the beautiful, cultured Madame Jewel, she has but one dream. She wanted nothing more than to get a job at The Red Petticoat Saloon and don the coveted red petticoat worn by Jewel's gems. She discovers that getting hired is the easy part - who knew that Jewel's partner has a tendency to frown upon gems who break the rules. Jebidiah Justice spent much of his youth avoiding the little red-head. Even his constant threats to tan her hide did nothing to sway the little pest to better behavior. Now, as the sheriff of Culpepper Cove, avoidance is no longer possible. On the night he catches her red-handed breaking and entering, he has to make a choice. Can he force himself to arrest the girl he remembers or will he lose his heart in rescuing the woman she's become? Rebekah becomes Ruby, the newest gem at the saloon, finding a home and a sense of family she craves. The only thing standing between her and her red petticoat is a man who refuses to call her anything but Red and warns her that if she puts so much as a pinky toe on those stairs, the only red thing under her skirts will be the hue he paints across her backside. And, this time, she had a feeling that he isn't just threatening. Will the two leave the past behind and make a future together or will their chance of happiness be taken away?

Jared Peterson was born in Hope, British Columbia. His doting parents envisioned the life of an accountant for their son, but Jared had other plans. Attending Cascade College in Portland, Oregon, he pursued a degree in Biblical Studies. After graduating, he worked as a youth minister in Los Angeles, California, and after that his path led him to work in El Paso, Texas. Life in the Christian churches and his degree in theology were the catalyst for Jared to become intrigued by the darker side of religion, specifically demonology and possession. As he delved deeper into the abyss of Satan's playground, Jared broke with his faith. In this lost stage of his life he played a hand in teaching at a small Christian school, only then to become an EMT. In time his passion for teaching returned. He received his Texas Educator certificate and began molding the minds of middle school students teaching Reading and English. Meanwhile, he didn't give up his obsession with demonology and immersed himself in all demons, devils, and occult. Soon haunted by nightmares, Jared decided to put his thoughts down on paper. Whatever it was that led Jared to break from his church; his path to deal with this break of faith begins with this cathartic audiobook. An audiobook that follows a young girl's story of getting caught up in the evil web of Satan via the Ouija board and learns what happens when you open yourself up to evil. While fleeing the indiscretions of her father, Ella and her mother move to a small mountain town. Keeping their old life a secret, they soon discover this town has secrets of its own. After years of healing from the loss of a son, Get the Hell Out begins with the Hunt family being torn apart. Ella gets her own Ouija board and begins dabbling with the devil in the secrecy of her own room. Things go terribly wrong and she seeks the help of Madame Sasha. 1. Language: English.

Rather, it is an investigation of the wisdom generations of men and women know to be true: that making things is a vital means of self-expression, self-realization, and self-help that sparks the mind, touches the soul, and rejuvenates the spirit.Integrating mindfulness, neuroscience, positive psychology, and creativity research, Rosemary Davidson and Arzu Tahsin explore how the simple act of making something from scratch impacts mental well-being, and offer a brilliantly reasoned argument in favor of craft.Process, not product, is the soul of a craft practice. Whether you knit, crochet, sculpt, weave, quilt, tat, draw, or bind books - working toward small, attainable goals gives us a sense of purpose, accomplishment, and control that is proven to positively impact our mental health and happiness.Davidson and Tahsin illuminate how craft practice re-introduces balance into our lives and our habits by cultivating creativity, carving space for ourselves, promoting focus, creating a safe space for failure, and ultimately, how to make peace with imperfection.Like Matthew B. Crawford’s Shop Class as Soul Craft, Ken Robinson’s Out of Our Minds, or Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow, Craftfulness helps us to see our world in a new way, offering opportunities to disconnect from the world, and pay attention to ourselves.Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

How well this investment grows depends on the type of tree selected and the planting location, the care provided during planting, and the follow-up care after planting. Getting your new tree off to a healthy start will help the tree mature to its full size and ensures it will provide environmental, economic, and social benefits throughout its lifetime.Planting a tree is an easy task, but it takes more preparation and skill than you might think. Many people assume it's so easy that they overlook basic planting techniques, potentially setting their trees up for failure.All trees have needs, such as specific sunlight and water requirements. An improperly placed tree can grow into a home's foundation, while a tree planted too deep is susceptible to disease and poor health.So, before you go out and plant that maple tree underneath the power lines, consider the following tree-planting tips.The actual process of planting a young tree is not difficult or time consuming, but it must be done properly and with care. However, the success of planting will depend on choosing the right species for the site and on providing an environment in which the young trees will thrive.With a little luck and good timing, sometimes simply sticking a tree in the ground and walking away can be enough for it to survive. But knowing how to plant a tree the right way will ensure success every time.Trees have been described as the lungs of the earth for good reason. Without them, there would be no life on this planet. That's reason enough to plant as many as we can. But when you learn just how important they are for so many reasons, you begin to understand my passion for trees and why we need more.So, whether this is your first tree planting or you've planted a forest by now, we're always learning.
