Kevin's grandfather and others in town attempt to rally the citizens against the "company" and its powerful owner to stop the plunder of their mountain heritage.

Book Summary:

The final book in The Mysteries of Nature trilogy by the New York Times bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben. Nature is full of surprises: deciduous trees affect the rotation of the Earth, cranes sabotage the production of Iberian ham, and coniferous forests can make it rain. But what are the processes that drive these incredible phenomena? And why do they matter? In The Secret Wisdom of Nature, master storyteller and international sensation Peter Wohlleben takes readers on a thought-provoking exploration of the vast natural systems that make life on Earth possible. In this tour of an almost unfathomable world, Wohlleben describes the fascinating interplay between animals and plants and answers such questions as: How do they influence each other? Do lifeforms communicate across species boundaries? And what happens when this finely tuned system gets out of sync? By introducing us to the latest scientific discoveries and recounting his own insights from decades of observing nature, one of the world’s most famous foresters shows us how to recapture our sense of awe so we can see the world around us with completely new eyes. Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Institute.

Book Summary:

Gematria or Torah Numerology has fascinated Jewish and non-Jewish students of Torah for millenia, perhaps because of its relative simplicity and instant appeal to both the intellect and the imagination. Innovations to this legitimately Rabbinic field of Torah study were usually introduced by the few, singular masters of the Torah's concealed dimension such as Rabbi Isaac Luria, the holy Arizal and the Magaleh Amukot. Still, throughout the millenia, the mathematical methods employed in gematria study have remained rudimentary and simple, hardly reflecting the many advances in mathematics, especially those achieved in the past few centuries. Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh, one of the greatest authorities on and innovators of the Torah's concealed dimension, has ushered in a new era in gematria with his meticulous scholarship, deep insight, and rigorous mathematical knowledge . Carefully building upon the traditional methods used by the Rabbinic authorities of the previous generations, Rabbi Ginsburgh has mathematized the study of gematria leading to the mathematization of Torah learning. This volume focuses on the Torah's first verse: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Of the hundreds of gematria findings related to these 7 words and 28 letters, a few dozen are explored in depth in terms of both mathematics and the traditional Rabbinic scholarship they connect to and illuminate. You will be astounded by the mathematical richness that the Torah relates to and will surely appreciate the beautiful new world of Torah scholarship mathematics can open up.

Book Summary:

Winner of the International Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction Animal tracks, word magic, the speech of stones, the power of letters, and the taste of the wind all figure prominently in this intellectual tour de force that returns us to our senses and to the sensuous terrain that sustains us. This major work of ecological philosophy startles the senses out of habitual ways of perception. For a thousand generations, human beings viewed themselves as part of the wider community of nature, and they carried on active relationships not only with other people with other animals, plants, and natural objects (including mountains, rivers, winds, and weather patters) that we have only lately come to think of as "inanimate." How, then, did humans come to sever their ancient reciprocity with the natural world? What will it take for us to recover a sustaining relation with the breathing earth? In The Spell of the Sensuous David Abram draws on sources as diverse as the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty, Balinese shamanism, Apache storytelling, and his own experience as an accomplished sleight-of-hand of magician to reveal the subtle dependence of human cognition on the natural environment. He explores the character of perception and excavates the sensual foundations of language, which--even at its most abstract--echoes the calls and cries of the earth. On every page of this lyrical work, Abram weaves his arguments with a passion, a precision, and an intellectual daring that recall such writers as Loren Eisleley, Annie Dillard, and Barry Lopez.

Book Summary:

The term 'Nature Spirits' or 'Elementals, ' generally conjures up images of dancing fairies or mischievous gnomes. Yet that's not what they are, not at all. You see, every aspect of Nature... from the flowers that bloom in the springtime, to the giant Red Woods that have stood tall for decades, has a spirit inside them. This 'Spirit of Nature' or 'Elemental Spark' works alongside Mother Nature, using its chosen talents and insights to accomplish what needs to be done to maintain our planet. If that's the case, then what about the land itself, or the mountains and stones that cover this planet, you wonder? Wouldn't they also be considered Nature Spirits? The answer is... Yes, of course. The Earth is full of ancient knowledge and the Stones and their counterparts have been the keepers of this knowledge since the beginning of time. It is only through them that we can discover how our world first began and what other secrets and purposes the Nature Spirits of this planet still hold in todays world. Inside this book they have provided us with many of the answers, not only regarding questions about the past but the future as well. Questions such as...where did the Standing Stones and Circles come from and what was the real purpose of those giant, ancient pyramids? Were visitors from the stars responsible for the building of this planet, and why do some volcanos remain active while others sleep? What about the land itself? How does it feel about being battled upon, or built upon for that matter? These are just a few of the answers the Elementals of this planet give us. Come inside and discover a world that most never knew existed. A place full of insight, ancient knowledge and fascinating facts, alive with hidden secrets and details that only Nature Spirits that have been around since the beginning of time would know. Yes, the Elemental Kingdom does exist. It's with great pleasure that the Nature Spirits of the Land now ask that you enter their world as they give you the answers to many of the questions you've always wondered about... "Elementally Speaking," of course.

Book Summary:

Heathen Earth: Trumpism and Political Ecology looks beyond the rising fortunes of authoritarian nationalism in a fossil-fueled late capitalist world to encounter its conditions. Trumpism represents an alternative to the forces undermining the very cosmology of the modern West from two opposing directions. The global economy, pinnacle of modernization, has brought along a dark side of massive inequality, corrupt institutions, colonial violence, and environmental destruction, while global warming, nadir of modernity, threatens to undo the foundations of all states and all markets. To the vertigo of placelessness symptomatic of globalization is added the ecological vertigo of landlessness. With reality slowly fragmenting, it is only too obvious in this light that Trumpism and other nationalist movements would attract massive hordes of supporters. Promising to expel foreigners and to restore unity and equality by taking power back from the global elites, while utterly denying the climate science that calls ordinary means of subsistence and consumption radically into question, Trumpism can be seen as an antidote to the toxic combination of global markets and global warming. The irony, of course, is that Trumpism only responds to these dangers by doubling down on the reckless expansionist logic that gave rise to them in the first place. This book, composed entirely between November 8, 2016 and January 20, 2017, examines Trumpism according to its regime of political representation (despotism), its political ontology (nativism), and its political ecology (geocide), while laying the groundwork for an alternative politics and a resistant, responsive ecology of the incompossible.

You define spangle, set off a fireworks show and it melts in all its color glory onto the roof of the State building. We said we'd try again when we were a little older. In the corntown where we looked for each other, blinded by the church light. Strike three. Phone ringing Perhaps in a dream, perhaps in the middle of the night - "The year is 1998. Wild lambs roam each slaughter field. Beings from the sky, maybe." from "4th grade Existentialism in the Sky" A childhood spent wrestling with God and his machines. Night in the English Channel.

Book Summary:

Job is an investigation of the problem of divine justice.[30] This problem, known in theology as theodicy, can be rephrased as a question: "Why do the righteous suffer?"[2] The conventional answer in ancient Israel was that God rewards virtue and punishes sin (the principle known as "retributive justice").[31] This assumes a world in which human choices and actions are morally significant, but experience demonstrates that suffering cannot be sensibly understood as a consequence of bad choices and actions, and unmerited suffering requires theological candour.[32] The biblical concept of righteousness was rooted in the covenant-making God who had ordered creation for communal well-being, and the righteous were those who invested in the community, showing special concern for the poor and needy (see Job's description of his life in chapter 31). Their antithesis were the wicked, who were selfish and greedy.[33] Satan raises the question of whether there is such a thing as disinterested righteousness: if God rewards righteousness with prosperity, will men not act righteously from selfish motives? He asks God to test this by removing the prosperity of Job, the most righteous of all God's servants.[34] The book begins with the frame narrative, giving the reader an omniscient "God's eye perspective" which introduces Job as a man of exemplary faith and piety, "blameless and upright," who "fears God" and "shuns evil."[35][36] God is seen initiating the discussion with Satan and approving Job's suffering, a device which serves three purposes: the usual explanations for suffering, that the sufferer has committed some sin of which he is unaware or that God's actions are inscrutable, are eliminated; it makes clear that it is not Job who is on trial, but God's policy of retribution; and the reader sees that God himself bears responsibility for Job's suffering.[37] The contrast between the frame and the poetic dialogues and monologues, in which Job never learns of the opening scenes in heaven or of the reason for his suffering, creates a sense of contradictory juxtaposition between the divine and human views of Job's suffering.[
