One thousand million years ago, a huge revolution occurred on Earth--sex happened for the first time. From that moment on, the world became ever more colorful and bizarre, ringing with elaborate songs and dances, epic battles, and rallying cries as the desires of males and females collided, generation after generation, in an unbroken chain of sex going back to the dawn of complex life on Earth. Sex is everywhere. Right now warring hordes are locking horns, preening feathers, rampaging lustfully across the savanna, questioning the fidelity of the ones they love. Writing in a brilliantly engaging style, biologist Jules Howard leads readers on a guided tour of the how and why of sex on Earth in all its diversity. From sperm wars to cuckoldry, hermaphrodites, virgin births, “exploding” penises, and mallards' “booby-trapped” vaginas, Sex on Earth explores and celebrates the wonders and peculiarities of animal reproduction.

This book collects some of R. Buckminster Fuller’s most important recent writings on the subject of spaceship Earth: the big, interconnected, total system that is “the only one we’ve got.” These articles stress the need for considering our planet as a whole, rather than breaking it into its parts—as most of us continue to do. This theme is crucial to the thinking of Bucky Fuller, who, in addition to his many other appellations, has been called the “godfather” of the Whole Earth Catalog. “Humanity is acquiring the right technology for all the wrong reasons—and only as driven by looming wars and the fear of being annihilated by the enemy. Humanity could acquire the technology for the purpose of total success and enduring peace. We say we cannot afford it in peace times, but technology … not only pays for itself but [leads] inadvertently to the acquisition of greater wealth.” —from “Earthians’ Critical Moment” in Earth, Inc.

DIV According to biblical prophecy, Earth is careening toward its final act on the stage of life. God is assembling the cast of characters that will catapult Earth into its eternal moments, and final preparations are being made for the final scene—a scene so powerfully dramatic that nothing ever seen before could possibly compare with what God has in store for this final act. /div

The names of Noah's three sons are Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The meaning! The meaning of Ham is dark "dark" or "black"; Shem means, "name," "dusky," or "olive-colored"; and Japheth means "bright" or "fair." One of the most intimidating questions that plagued the mind of many today is how could one son be of Black decent and not the others? According to medical research, it tells us it is possible to have children that are very different, particularly if one or both of the parents is dark-complexioned, but according to medical research it is impossible for a bright or fair-complexioned person to produce a dark-skinned child. (NOTE: NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR GOD) According to historians and their findings, Ham is the ancestral father of the Blacks, Mongoloids, and the Indians. Shem is the ancestral father of the Jews and Arab nations; and from the loins of Japheth came the Caucasians, "nationalized" the Indo-European- Countries.

We need a new philosophy of the earth. Geological time used to refer to slow and gradual processes, but today we are watching land sink into the sea and forests transform into deserts. We can even see the creation of new geological strata made of plastic, chicken bones, and other waste that could remain in the fossil record for millennia or longer. Crafting a philosophy of geology that rewrites natural and human history from the broader perspective of movement, Thomas Nail provides a new materialist, kinetic ethics of the earth that speaks to this moment. Climate change and other ecological disruptions challenge us to reconsider the deep history of minerals, atmosphere, plants, and animals and to take a more process-oriented perspective that sees humanity as part of the larger cosmic and terrestrial drama of mobility and flow. Building on his earlier work on the philosophy of movement, Nail argues that we should shift our biocentric emphasis from conservation to expenditure, flux, and planetary diversity. Theory of the Earth urges us to rethink our ethical relationship to one another, the planet, and the cosmos at large.

A guided tour through the body’s innate healing powers Many of us have learned to ignore, deny, or even mistrust the wise messages our bodies give us. The result is that when trauma strikes, a time when we need every aspect of our beings to master the challenge, we may find ourselves disconnected from our greatest strengths. Suzanne Scurlock-Durana, who has spent thirty years studying the gifts of the body and teaching thousands how to reclaim them, began to recognize this strength, which she likens to a GPS, when she herself experienced a life-threatening trauma. Here she walks readers through different areas of the body, revealing the wisdom they hold and how to reconnect with that wisdom. As she shows in this warm, compassionate book, the body’s abilities are always available; we must simply reconnect with them.
