Ein neuer Blick auf alte Freunde Erstaunliche Dinge geschehen im Wald: Bäume, die miteinander kommunizieren. Bäume, die ihren Nachwuchs, aber auch alte und kranke Nachbarn liebevoll umsorgen und pflegen. Bäume, die Empfindungen haben, Gefühle, ein Gedächtnis. Unglaublich? Aber wahr! – Der Förster Peter Wohlleben erzählt faszinierende Geschichten über die ungeahnten und höchst erstaunlichen Fähigkeiten der Bäume. Dazu zieht er die neuesten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse ebenso heran wie seine eigenen unmittelbaren Erfahrungen mit dem Wald und schafft so eine aufregend neue Begegnung für die Leser: Wir schließen Bekanntschaft mit einem Lebewesen, das uns vertraut schien, uns aber hier erstmals in seiner ganzen Lebendigkeit vor Augen tritt. Und wir betreten eine völlig neue Welt ...

In this book Poetic Pete(tm), AKA Peter Karplus(tm), author of Dancing with Fear, Rejection, Doubt, and Hope, and A Potpourri of Poems, uses free verse, haiku, iambic pentameter, and rhyme and an amazingly sensitive understanding dipped in his own brand of humor as he explores nature and its brilliance, and covers subjects of family and friends, making dedications to those people in his life who have held special meaning to him as well as illuminating the many shades of love and the range of emotions that are its bedfellows. Then, he follows with a selection of religion tenured poems ranging from the obtuse to the obvious. He goes on to show us a look inward into his life and people's reactions, to his speech impediments and bent body, that he has had to enlighten and change with his lifelong-learned teachings, and amazing understanding. He, then, continues with a selection of assorted poems that range from the comical to the serious aspects of life, followed by a few poems that take a surreal look at the world. Poetic Pete then welcomes us with several of his latest lyrics spanning subjects such as love, heartbreak, and even politics. And in conclusion, he ends the book with a couple short stories

Although any manager would recognize the importance of “networking” in finding, developing, and retaining employees, human resource management traditionally has focused on individuals. In this chapter, the authors point out that core HR processes such as recruitment and hiring, training and development, performance management, and retention all depend on networks. They consider the importance of weak ties in matching employees with jobs and “structural holes” in promoting creativity. They urge managers to make the shift from an atomized view to a network view of human resources--from focusing on the “trees” to understanding the “forest.” They show that networks can boost efficiency and productivity by facilitating information sharing, attracting talent, and strengthening employees’ commitment to the firm. But networks may also pose risks such as “lift-outs,” in which a departing employee takes other workers in his or her network. The authors explore how managers need to understand the impact of networks and how to “manage” them.

The Land Under: Seeing the Forest Through the Trees is a charming middle-grade adventure story about a boys journey to an underground kingdom of talking animals. Unhappy because of his parents financial difficulties, thirteen-year-old Frank finds himself summoned to the Land Under, a place that parallels our world but is only for animals. Fallen trees linked to forests aboveground are damming up the mighty waterfall, Naveah, which powers the rivers that keep the three kingdoms of the underground civilization separated. If Frank doesnt find a way to unblock the waterfall, the northern forest kingdom will be overrun by savage animals from the jungle and safari kingdoms. Its a race against time, the elements, and the balance of nature for an average boy with an extraordinary mission. Like a fairy tale in its intuitive simplicity, The Land Under grows before your eyes into a completely detailed world that feels so ordinary and real that it almost doesnt seem to be fantasy.

This book is about situations we all have had, or will go through literally in life that will either transform our minds or allow us the opportunity to have other situations that will. The need to know yourself and your purpose for being here is the key point of the journey. The book shares that in life we all have stories, adventures, even tragedies that we feel are real. We have them but we are not them. The chapters describe the high roads and the low roads of love, sex, relationships, talents, servitude and gratitude. Ultimately the book pronounces the importance of the male and female balance. It reintroduces the significance of The Woman, The Mother, The Female and her presence in the world. She is the focal point of this book. Due to the patriarchal dominance for so long, this book is written to cause thoughts of what the world would be like when the balance of both male and female energy is in total harmony without, dominance, control and power for the gratification of the false ego verses the higher sense of being.

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.

For centuries, scientists have dreamt of discovering an underlying unity to nature. Science now offers powerful explanations for both the dazzling diversity and striking similarities seen in the living world. Life is complicated. It is truly the “entangled bank†that Charles Darwin described. But scientists are now discovering that energy is the unifying force that joins all life on Earth. Visionary biologists have advanced a new theory that explains how the natural worldâ€"from the tiniest amoeba to the greatest rain forestâ€"is constructed, providing a fresh perspective on the essential interconnectivity of living systems. This revolutionary theory explains a variety of phenomenaâ€"helping us understand why a shrew eats its bodyweight in food each day, why a mammal’s heart beats about 1 billion times in its lifetime, why there are no trees as tall as the Eiffel Tower, and why more species live at the Earth’s equator than at its poles. By looking at how living things use energy, we can answer these and myriad other intriguing questions. In the Beat of a Heart combines biography, history, science and nature writing to capture the exciting advancesâ€" and the people who are making themâ€"that are triggering a revolution as potentially important to biology as Newton’s insights were to physics.
