The ills of society and the human weaknesses are highlighted in an exaggerated way in this novel, which is divided substantially in two parts: the first from tragicomic adventures and ramblings of mind of the protagonist, the second by a sci-fi escape from the world of work trying to live in an underwater world inhabited by mermaids. This book is dedicated to the men humble, not arrogant, but strong and sure of themselves.
A sleepy American town is woken up in the middle of the night by horrifying noises. Terror-stricken citizens claim to have heard unexplained rumblings and there are reports of bright lights emanating from a nearby mountain.
In this breakthrough introductory text, educators Jamie Pope and Steve Nizielski, and science writer, Alison McCook use real stories about real people and real science to teach the basic concepts of nutrition. Each chapter reads like "Scientific American"-style article, with compelling reporting and beautifully designed infographics providing a context for the scientific content. Unique chapters on timely topics (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, plant-based diets, fat- and water-soluble vitamins, dietary supplements, and the college years) exemplify the book s thoroughly contemporary approach to nutrition science."Nutrition for Changing World" is also the only textbook for the course to offer automatically graded dietary analysis activities using the USDA s open-access SuperTracker. These exercises are in LaunchPad, a dedicated online course space that compliments the text to provide students with a fully integrated print/digital learning experience."
