There is no world for whistle-blower in Italian, though you can absolutely chiudere un'occhio (turn a blind eye). In all areas of public life - community, education, employment - your connections are everything. From the bestselling author of Italian Neighbours, An Italian Education and Italian Ways, Italian Life is a particular reckoning with a beloved adopted country. It takes place in a university in the north. Valeria, a talented young woman from hot, dusty Basilicata, enrols together with thousands of others for a degree course that could take anything between three and ten years to complete, given the vagaries of the system. She has sacrificed a great deal to get here. However, as both Valeria and her rich supporting cast of students and professors will soon discover, there are dark and capricious forces at the institution's heart. Unfolding into a story of power and corruption, influence and exclusion, Tim Parks' compelling new book shows that an education is about understanding the workings of a society - in this case one where family, culture and innovation are shadowed by nepotism, bureaucracy and intrigue. Thought-provoking, surprising and always entertaining, Italian Life is a behind-the-scenes look at a paradoxical country: a gripping account of how Italy actually happens.

Nutritional Truths: Healthful Insights to Serve...

Most diseases are an option and not our predestination. This book gives you the tools to avoid them and deal with them if they do come calling. The author Brett Christoffel lived over 40 years in the dark about holistic and natural solutions to health issues. Brett was let in on how increasing consumption of Omega 3's may alleviate depression and other health problems, and then he gave it a try. With the information he gained, he began a 6-month regimen of consuming 1-2 tablespoons of fresh ground flax seeds daily. Four months later, he was able to cease taking his anti-depressant dosage that he had been taking for almost 20 years. Taking place more than three years ago, all the "truths" he thought he knew about "modern" medicine turned out to be false. The more he investigated, the more he realized much of the nation, like he, was asleep at the wheel when it came to real health care, nutrition and healing. Rather than another diet book, this is a journey that covers the components and ingredients of the Standard American Diet (SAD) and Americas obsession with protein and calcium. You'll get introduced to many foods and beverages that embrace and promote wellness and love your mind and body back. You will learn about the toxins and the truth about dentistry and its various components and how you can live a much more healthful life. You will meet some of the last century's medical pioneers in the healing arts whom the government has spent hundreds of millions of dollars attempting to silence and banish from the medical establishment in America. Discover incredible stories of courage and triumph from those who are living beyond a cancer diagnoses via various holistic and alternative pathways. The book also supports your mind, body, and spirit wellness - a comprehensive study which, for some will be a mind blower, for others an eye-opener, and for those already in-the-know, a chance to share with the uninformed. 1.

Urban Survival Handbook: 23 Crucial Items You N...

Be Ready and Prepared for Any Disaster Tornadoes. Whirlwinds. Earthquakes. Volcanoes. Just some of what nature can throw at us and make us need to bug out of our homes. Fast. It is an unfortunate but true enough event that sometimes people have to abandon their homes for short periods before they are allowed to return. The most frequent reason for such an incident is a natural disaster like a tornado, a whirlwind, an earthquake, or a flood. At least these are the reasons of a nonpermanent nature that allow the inhabitants of a house to return after the emergency has passed. If and when something like this befalls you, you should be prepared. Especially if you live in an area where such phenomena are likely to occur and there is historical evidence that they have. In Japan, for example, it is mandatory for the people to sleep with a whistle blower within arm's reach to notify rescue personnel in case of an earthquake. For the same reason, there is a class in school teaching the children what to do. The Ultimate 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit It all begins with the choice of container, which greatly depends upon your load-carrying capabilities, as it would rather be impossible to use a vehicle to evacuate in an emergency. It continues with the essential items like the first-aid kit, the means to light a fire, the means to have lighting when it gets dark, and the means to be able to provide nourishment for yourself and your family, along with the necessary paperwork (maps, identification papers, survival manuals etc.) and a few not as essential but extremely useful items you should carry along if you have such capability. Since there is no such class in Western schools, it is imperative that books like this are written to introduce people to concepts that can help them survive disasters whether they have been informed about them in advance or not. 1.
