Young fae girls are disappearing. Layla has never belonged to the fairy realm – at least, half of her hasn’t. She’s never known anyone with human blood, not even her father. When she was three, the dragon Fauth attacked the fairy festival, murdering her fae mum & stepfather. Frankly, some fairies think she should’ve been eaten too. As she grew, despite being called names like “fuman” for being a half-blood, she’s discovered that being half-human isn’t terrible. She may lack magic, but she is immune to iron sickness, and she can wield a sword with elven skill. Magic in the human world is disastrous. Sixteen years later, when Layla’s half-sister is kidnapped and taken through a portal to the forbidden human realm, Layla rushes to the rescue. She’s older and stronger, and she’s not about to let her last living family member be taken from her without a fight. Only someone who belongs to both worlds can find the truth. The portal spits her out in the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, but neither her sister or the kidnapper are anywhere to be found. Stuck in a world she only knows from school books, Layla forges unlikely alliances to find her sister. As she becomes tangled in the dark world of fairy trafficking, magic harvesting, and murder, Layla will have to find the strength within if she is to survive and save her sister. “Mary Karlik, is truly a hidden gem of a writer.” – I Am the Bookworm Magic Harvest Series 1.

This is volume II of “Coral Gardens and Their Magic”, dealing with Kilivila terms related to gardening and agriculture. Kilivila is the language spoken on the Trobriand islands, a group of islands off the east cost of New Guinea. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in anthropology and Trobriand culture, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “Language as Tool, Document, and Cultural Reality”, “The Translation of Untranslatable words”, “The Context of Words and the Context of Facts”, “Th e Pragmatic Setting of Utterances”, “Meaning as Function of Words”, “The Sources of Meaning in the Speech of Infants”, “Gaps, Gluts and Vagaries of a Native Terminology”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.

As part of Papua New Guinea, the Trobriant Islands are located in a bordering sea of the Pacific Ocean. At the beginning of the 20th century the anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski was one of the first to explore the archipelago in the South Sea and its inhabitants. In the context of his work he discovered that Freund’s psychoanalytic universality thesis regarding the Oedipus complex is not true for the islanders. In this first volume out of three, Malinowsky deals with the tribal economics and social organizations as well as the trobriandan gardening techniques and the magic within this kind of work.

How to Harvest Turmeric Turmeric Essential Oil Storing Your Turmeric How to Grind Turmeric Using Turmeric for Dyeing Turmeric as an Insecticide Turmeric for Beauty Natural Skin Remedy Getting Rid of Skin Blemishes Getting Rid of Sunburn Turmeric Body Mask Oatmeal Turmeric Scrub Turmeric in a Toothpaste? Sprouted Lentil Veggie Burger Orange Turmeric Cake Marinated Grilled Prawns Savory Chickpeas Turmeric to Heal You. Tummy Parasites? Suffering from anemia? Turmeric for Curing Wounds Turmeric Antiseptic Turmeric and Onions team up against Colon Cancer Conclusion Introduction There is an ancient and amusing saying, very prevalent in the East," Mr. Rat found a rhizome of turmeric; he immediately opened up a grocers/herbalist shop!" This may be used to talk about a dreaming, ambitious person, who is trying to extend his wings beyond his capacities, but on the other hand, it talks all about the power of turmeric. As a grocer, Mr. Rat could not only sell turmeric as a condiment and as a spice, for cooking purposes, but he also had easy access to the cure-all for all ailments – turmeric! Scientific research in the West, has found out that turmeric, has antibiotic and germicidal qualities, but that was already known in the ancient alternative medicine of the Orient and of the East. It had to be a necessary part of the medical arsenal of every wise woman out there, in ancient times, because if she did not have easy access to the medicine man or to a physician, she just had to resort to plain old turmeric. So her family's cough and cold prevalent chest infections, cuts, wounds, and even skin problems in her teenage kids, with those pimples and skin blemishes could be cured by turmeric. The idea that turmeric is used just as a spice, giving flavor and a golden color to cuisine, is slowly and steadily disappearing from the Western mind. Instead, they are getting to know more about its curative properties, thanks to research telling them about Curcumin – a natural product present in turmeric, which keeps you safe, healthy, and also prevents cancer. Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, Indian, and Oriental medicine knew all about the value of this rhizome since ancient times. This plant belongs to the same family as the equally important curative Herb – ginger. The herb that you are going to get in the market, is going to be a golden yellow powder, made up of grinding dry rhizomes in a heavy-duty grinder. I remember one of the persuasive salesman, trying to persuade my father to buy some of his hundred percent pure, freshly ground in his own mill turmeric powder, packaged in his own shop. My father looked at him and told him, "last time I bought some of this hundred percent pure, freshly packaged powder from the market, I put a teaspoon full of it in the water, and I have got enough of saffron dye mixed in it to dye a turban!" That shut the sales man up, because that is when guilty conscience works. Yes it is true; the powder that you are going to get in the market today is possibly definitely not pure, that is why it is necessary for you to use a grinder to grind the rhizomes. This book is going to tell you all about the magic of turmeric, and you are going to be surprised to know that you knew so less about this amazing herb/spice. Not only is it being used extensively to cure and prevent life-threatening diseases, but it can help save you a lot of headaches and possible financial expenditure, related to your health in the future.

The Political Life of Sensation

The taste of chocolate, the noise of a crowd, the visual impressions of filmic images—such sensory perceptions are rarely if ever discussed in relation to democratic theory. In response, Davide Panagia argues that by overlooking sensation political theorists ignore a crucial dimension of political life. Drawing on Gilles Deleuze’s and Jacques Rancière’s readings of Kantian aesthetics, Panagia posits sensation as a radical democratic moment of aesthetic judgment. He contends that sensory experience interrupts our perceptual givens, creating occasions to suspend authority and reconfigure the arrangement of a political order. Panagia claims that the rule of narrative governs our inherited notions of political subjectivity and agency, such that reading and writing are the established modes of political deliberation. Yet the contemporary citizen-subject is a viewing subject, influenced by film, photos, and other perceptual stimuli as much as by text. Challenging the rule of narrative, Panagia analyzes diverse sites of cultural engagement including the visual dynamics portrayed in the film The Ring, the growth of festival culture in late-fifteenth-century Florence, the practices of convivium espoused by the Slow Food movement, and the architectural design of public newsstands. He then ties these occasions for sensation to notable moments in the history of political thought and shows the political potential of a dislocated subjectivity therein. Democratic politics, Panagia concludes, involves a taking part in those everyday practices that interrupt our common modes of sensing and afford us an awareness of what had previously been insensible.

Pre-harvest sprouting (PHS) and late-maturity alpha-amylase (LMA) are two of the biggest grain quality defects that grain growers encounter. About 50 percent of the global wheat crop is affected by pre-harvest sprouting to various degrees. Pre-harvest sprouting is a genetically-based quality defect and results in the presence of alpha-amylase in otherwise sound mature grain. It can range from perhaps undetectable to severe damage on grain and is measured by the falling numbers or alpha-amylase activity. This is an international issue, with sprouting damage lowering the value of crops to growers, seed and grain merchants, millers, maltsters, bakers, other processors, and ultimately the consumer. As such it has attracted attention from researchers in many biological and non-biological disciplines. The 13th International Symposium on Pre-Harvest Sprouting in Cereals was held 18-20 September, 2016 in Perth to discuss current findings of grain physiology, genetic pathways, trait expression and screening methods related to pre-harvest sprouting and LMA. This event followed the previous symposium in 2012 in Canada.
