The Orvis Guide to Hatch Strategies

Mayflies have a strange life cycle. They hatch from eggs, live as larvae or naiads (we call them nymphs) for about a year, and then hatch into a winged stage called a subimago (we call it a dun). We call the duns adults, ...

The Orvis Guide to Hatch Strategies

One of the most studied yet intimidating aspects of fly fishing for trout is an understanding of insect hatches. This unique book teaches fly fishers enough entomology to be successful, and instead of focusing on insect identification, it stresses learning how to approach trout, how to find where they feed, and how to present the fly so it is accepted as natural food without hesitation. It helps fly fishers catch more fish on dry flies, streamers, and nymphs, and teaches the angler more about trout than the life history of insects. Published in association with The Orvis Company.

Lean Brain Management

Intelligence is wasted on problems that themselves have been caused by an excess of intelligence. Lean Brain Management strives toward uncompromising Lean Brain Quality. Lean Brain stands for consistent economization of intelligence in all realms of life: Intelligent systems will only be operated by unskilled workers. Education, universities, and schools would become obsolete. A week of training would be enough for virtually any job. ("You are now the physician for the measles in the State of Ohio. In response to phone calls, send this prescription.") Lean Brain is not aimed at dumbing down! Lean Brain can survive on just a very small amount of central intelligence. Potential savings amount to trillions! This is demonstrated using Germany as an example. With this book, Dueck presents a radical suggestion for world improvement. The desire to laugh infinitely about it will eventually segue into a collective rude awakening. The book contains concrete advice for managers to economize on intelligence, and is thus—in keeping with the theme—written in an easy-to-read fashion. It contains no self-doubt whatsoever.

Advances in the Study of Behavior

Advances in the Study of Behavior was initiated over 40 years ago to serve the increasing number of scientists engaged in the study of animal behavior. That number is still expanding. This volume makes another important "contribution to the development of the field" by presenting theoretical ideas and research to those studying animal behavior and to their colleagues in neighboring fields. Advances in the Study of Behavior is now available online at ScienceDirect full-text online from volume 30 onward.

Donald MacBeth, a Scottish twenty something, is trying to break out from a twenty-year stretch in the Highland rural family crime business. He arrives in the city to establish a career to support Angela, the love of his life. He falls foul of the VAT squad, amongst others, and whilst on the run, falls in with an Italian CIA informant also dodging pursuit, but from the Mafia. Donald heads home where he should feel safe, but that is where his pursuers expect him to be. Events conspire as he tries to propose, keep people alive, say hello to his folks, and find a job on the right side of the law.

Life and Action

Any sound practical philosophy must be clear on practical concepts—concepts, in particular, of life, action, and practice. This clarity is Michael Thompson’s aim in his ambitious work. In Thompson’s view, failure to comprehend the structures of thought and judgment expressed in these concepts has disfigured modern moral philosophy, rendering it incapable of addressing the larger questions that should be its focus.

Ethics after Anscombe

The outstanding features of this book are that it directly confronts the challenge posed by G.E.M. Anscombe in Modern Moral Philosophy of how moral philosophy can be done, it makes a significant contribution to the debate on virtue theory and anti-theory in ethics, and it shows the relevance of such theoretical discussion by grounding it in, and applying it to, contemporary moral issues such as abortion, suicide, and the moral status of animals. No other book currently available covers this ground. The book is aimed primarily at upper-level undergraduates, graduate students and faculty in philosophy, but it should be accessible to anyone with an interest in practical ethics or the philosophy of Wittgenstein.

Ethical Issues in the New Genetics

This title was first published in 2003.Developments in genetic science are opening up new possibilities for human beings; both the creation and the shaping of human life are now possible in the laboratory. As these techniques develop, questions are increasingly asked about how far everything that is scientifically possible should - morally, legally and socially - be pursued. Whilst much attention and policy-making has focussed on the development of regulation of technologies affecting human reproduction, regulation where plants and animals are concerned is much more limited. In this book, developments in genetics are addressed in the broad sense by an international range of contributors. This includes not only issues such as eugenics and the modification of the human embryo, but also the genetic modification of plants and animals in the pursuit of commerce, agriculture and biomedical research.  This book is published in association with the Society for Applied Philosophy

Contested Modernities in Chinese Literature

This book is a significant gathering of ideas on the subject of modern Chinese literature and culture of the past several years. The essays represent a wide spectrum of new approaches and new areas of subject matter that are changing the landscape of knowledge of modern and contemporary Chinese culture: women's literature, theatre (performance), film, graphic arts, popular literature, as well as literature of the Chinese diaspora. These phenomena and the approaches to them manifest interconnected trajectories for new scholarship in the field: the rewriting of literary history, the emergence of visual culture, and the quotidian apocalypse - the displacement of revolutionary romanticism and realism as central paradigms for cultural expression by the perspective of private, everyday experience.

Developing Environmental Awareness Through Children s Literature

Developing Environmental Awareness Through Children s Literature

As environmental concerns become more and more important, teachers and librarians are looking for effective ways to teach children to appreciate nature and conserve resources. Over 200 selections from children's literature with characters who respect the environment are presented in this guide. The books are grouped in five basic genres (contemporary fiction, folk literature, historical fiction, biographies and fanciful fiction). Entries include full bibliographic data, a descriptive annotation and an indication of the appropriate grade level. Target activities that reinforce the work's theme are also provided for each title.
