The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals (Audible Audio Edition): Wayne Pacelle, Eric Martin, HarperAudio: Books



A major new exploration of the economics of animal exploitation and a practical road map for how we can use the marketplace to promote the welfare of all living creatures from the renowned animal-rights advocate Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States and New York Times best-selling author of The Bond.
In the mid-19th century, New Bedford, Massachusetts, was the whaling capital of the world. A half gallon of sperm oil cost approximately $1,400 in today's dollars, and whale populations were hunted to near extinction for profit. But with the advent of fossil fuels, the whaling industry collapsed, and today the area around New Bedford is instead known as one of the best places in the world for whale watching.
This transformation is emblematic of a new sort of economic revolution, one that has the power to transform the future of animal welfare. In The Humane Economy, Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, explores how our everyday economic decisions impact the survival and well-being of animals and how we can make choices that better support them.
Though most of us have never harpooned a sea creature, clubbed a seal, or killed an animal for profit, we are all part of an interconnected web that has a tremendous impact on animal welfare, and the decisions we make - whether supporting local, not industrial, farming; adopting a rescue dog or a shelter animal instead of one from a "puppy mill"; avoiding products that compromise the habitats of wild species; or even seeing Cirque du Soleil instead of Ringling Brothers - do matter.
The Humane Economy shows us how what we do every day as consumers can benefit animals, the environment, and human society and why these decisions can make economic sense as well.

"If someone is abusing you, regardless of who, get out, run, don't walk and don't look back. I honestly believe that. Abusers are like stuck records and have no investment in changing. If they did, if they had the capacity for self reflection, they would not be abusive. Occasionally they may change, but it's a huge risk taking the chance to find out if they have, as they have all of your buttons worked out to push. Got you on re dial from childhoo…

This powerful meditation recording by best-selling self-help author Glenn Harrold has been designed to help you heal your spiritual energy body of imprints and blocks. Each and every one of us has an invisible energy field that surrounds us and which is alive with information. Trained visionaries, psychics and Shaman can see this subtle energy field which holds lots of information about you, both from this lifetime and your past lifetimes. Within this energetic field there can be blockages and imprints that hold you back and prevent you from reaching your potential.
Repetitive behavioural patterns that you find it hard to shake are often caused by blocks in your energy fields. By listening to this recording you will be able to heal your energetic body of imprints from the past, and clear patterns that have been with you for lifetimes. When you heal yourself spiritually it will naturally follow that you will heal yourself physically and emotionally. The author recommends that you continue to use this recording as often as you can as the healing process can have many layers and life will continue to throw up challenges and issue for you to deal with. However, as you progress and more things clear in your energy fields, you will feel much lighter, and you will begin to regain your true nature and the essence of who you are.
Post hypnotic Affirmations include:
  • I continue to heal myself of all wounds from my past
  • I take complete responsibility for everything in my life
  • My energy body continues to heal itself
  • I release all blocks and negative emotions from my past
  • I love and respect myself unconditionally
  • I feel loved and I accept myself completely
Features:
  • Glenn Harrold’s calming voice guiding you into a completely relaxed state of mind & body
  • Powerful meditation techniques, state of the art digital recording technology and unique sound frequencies
  • Soothing background sounds recorded in specific musical keys and frequencies to deepen the relaxation effect
  • Hypnotic echoed affirmations which pan from ear to ear across the stereo range - a deeply relaxing, unique effect

Shrink Inequality.

In Fact, It's Happening.

Rising prosperity widened income gaps in Latin America and 
China, but the trend is reversing.

It's getting better.
 
Photographer: Nelson Ching/Bloomberg

Does capitalist economic growth lead to greater inequality, or less? The 
mid-20th-century economist Simon Kuznets believed that at first, industrialization 
would lead to greater inequality as a few pioneering entrepreneurs and workers 
moved to the cities where the growth was happening. But as rural areas emptied 
out and the economy matured, he said, inequality would fall. This prediction 
contradicted Marxist ideas, which envisioned a capitalist class steadily immiserating 
the workers of the world. The solution to the problems of capitalist growth, Kuznets asserted, was more capitalist growth. READ MORE SEE SOURCE: Capitalism Will

Amazon.com: Climate of Hope: How Cities, Businesses, and Citizens Can Save the Planet (9781250142078): Michael Bloomberg, Carl Pope: Books


Review


"In their new book, Climate of Hope, Michael Bloomberg and Carl Pope provide readers with 
a wonderful, in-depth analysis of how municipalities, businesses and private citizens are proving 
to be a bold force in solving the greatest challenge of our time―the climate crisis. This book gives
 readers the opportunity to benefit from the wisdom of two highly successful individuals who have
 taken distinct paths to ensuring that their own communities and organizations have a tangible 
impact in securing our sustainable future. Climate of Hope is an inspiring must-read for anyone 
who wants to know how their local actions can have positive and significant impacts on the world."
 ―Former Vice President Al Gore, Chairman of The Climate Reality Project

"If Trump is looking for a blueprint, he could not do better than to read a smart new book, 
Climate of Hope." ―Thomas Friedman in The New York Times


“Meeting our world’s growing energy demands will require contributions from science, business 
and government. As Climate of Hope shows, Michael Bloomberg has a unique understanding of 
the importance of this collaborative approach. Michael’s leadership and optimism remind us that 
by working together, we can develop breakthrough innovations to reduce the cost and increase 
the reliability of clean energy technology.” ―Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

“Climate change threatens to reshape the future of our world's population centers. Bloomberg and 
Pope have been leaders on fortifying our cities against this threat, and their book proves that 
victory is possible―and imperative.” ―Leonardo DiCaprio

“Michael Bloomberg and Carl Pope, in their new book, Climate of Hope, make a powerful argument 
that we need a new conversation to ensure we save the planet from global warming. It is a necessary 
look at the threat and an urgent call for all of us to act immediately at the local level. They bring know-
ledge, experience and passion to a subject that demands our attention." 
Charlie Rose, anchor and 
executive editor of Charlie Rose, co-anchor of CBS This Morning, and correspondent on 60 Minutes


"A book that glows with the optimism of levelheaded reason. Keenly attuned to political realities, 
Climate of Hope bypasses the fraught debates over long-term climate change, focusing instead on 
the immediate consequences of pollution." ―New York Magazine

“A hopeful book of strategies for delivering the planet from our worst environmental depredations. …
a thoughtful, eminently reasonable set of proposals.” ―Kirkus

“Upbeat, pragmatic, eloquent, and supremely well-informed, Bloomberg and Pope present striking 
statistics, cogently describe diverse examples of energy reforms and innovations across the U.S. 
and around the world, and make clear on both personal and social levels why a low-carbon future
 is possible, necessary, and of great benefit to everyone.” ―Booklist (starred)


“[Bloomberg & Pope’s] divergent insights offer a three-dimensional examination of the crisis as well as 
accessible solutions, innovative suggestions and a plethora of benefits. Most importantly, their positive, 
forward-looking attitude is inspiring and attainable. Bloomberg and Pope's collaborative work epitomizes 
the unity needed to solve climate change, and they set an example to follow.” ―Shelf Awareness

“Thanks in no small part to Michael Bloomberg, mayors around the world are proving day after day that 
cities can tackle climate change. There are three things we need to do: act, act and act again. This is 
the first book that explains how.” ―Anne Hidalgo, mayor of Paris

“Michael Bloomberg and Carl Pope show that cities demonstrate how a bottom-up approach to climate 
action is not only possible, but also necessary―and how all of us have a role to play.” 
Carol Browner, former EPA Administrator & White House Climate Advisor

Climate of Hope couldn’t be more timely―or more necessary. Its optimistic and can-do spirit is exactly 
what made a global agreement possible. Now, Bloomberg and Pope provide a roadmap for  making it a 
success.” ―Christiana Figueres, Former Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Share.
Get caught up on the classic comic series in anticipation of the Luc Besson film.
Of all the upcoming comic-book movies currently in the works, there’s one in particular that’s not just an adaptation of a legendary series but also looks like it could be the most thrilling addition to the genre in some time. I’m talking, of course, about Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, set for release on July 21. The film, which stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, is the most expensive ever produced in France, and is a lifelong passion project of co-producer, writer, and director Luc Besson.
Valerian is based on the French comic series Valerian and Laureline by writer Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières, which ran from 1967 to 2010 and was a highly influential work in the sci-fi and fantasy genres. Read on to find out more about the comics and what we should expect from the film (on top of the already gorgeous special effects we’ve seen in the trailers). There will be SPOILERS from the comics, although I’ve done my best to avoid giving away too many details of Vol. 6, Ambassador of the Shadows , given this is the adventure which most heavily informs the plot of Besson’s film.

America's Most Wasted

Time to Arrest Washington’s Out-of-Control Spending

"Since coming to Congress, Senator McCain has made it a priority to eliminate wasteful projects and special-interest-driven pork-barrel spending. He proposed thousands of amendments on the Senate floor to cut pork, and for years highlighted the corrupt, bipartisan plague of earmarks, which retired Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) called “the gateway drug to overspending” in Washington. While Congress finally banned the corrupt practice of earmarks in 2011, Senator McCain has opposed efforts to reinstate them while calling for increased oversight to cut-out duplication and eliminate waste."
