Der Wandel eines faszinierenden, bedrohten Lebensraums Die Ozeane sind nicht nur der größte Lebensraum der Erde, sondern auch der am wenigsten erforschte. Die unermessliche Vielfalt dieses Ökosystems beginnen wir erst jetzt bis in die letzten Winkel zu begreifen – auch wie wichtig das Meer für unser Leben ist. Im letzten Jahrhundert hat jedoch die Herrschaft des Menschen über die Natur auch die Ozeane erreicht: Wir fischen die Meere leer und füllen sie stattdessen mit Umweltgiften. Tiefseebergbau droht den Lebensraum unzähliger Pflanzen und Tiere bis zur Unkenntlichkeit zu verändern. Die Klimaerwärmung ließ bereits ein Viertel aller Korallen zugrunde gehen. In seinem aufrüttelnden Buch beschreibt der Meeresbiologe und –schützer Callum Roberts den großen Reichtum der Ozeane und ihren Wandel, und er ruft dazu auf, der Zerstörung der Meere endlich Einhalt zu gebieten, denn noch ist es nicht zu spät.

In this revelatory book, Callum Roberts uses his lifetime's experience working with the oceans to show why they are the most mysterious places on earth, their depths still largely unexplored. In The Ocean of Life we get a panoramic tour beneath the seas: Why do currents circulate the way do? Where exactly do they go? How has the chemistry of the oceans changed? How polluted are we making them? Above all, Roberts reveals the richness of their life, and how it has altered over the centuries. The oceans are now under unprecedented threat. Not only does Roberts show how we are fishing our oceans to extinction, crucially, he explains how this directly affects our lives on land. Ninety-five percent of habitable space on earth lies in the oceans, and marine plants produce half the world's oxygen; the oceans themselves absorb vast quantities of carbon dioxide. The life they support is now in the balance. The Ocean of Life should galvanise debate worldwide. Roberts shows how we can arrest and reverse the damage we are doing. Tantalisingly, it is within our grasp to restore the life of the oceans. There is still time.

Sailboat is a book of heartfelt poetry that grabs the readers curiosity, first with the outcome of the book, and then with the originality of the author. In the universal motifs and messages, found throughout the poems of Ratka Bogdan, one senses a rich and diversified life, which is spread across three continents. Nevertheless, the birthplace, that beautiful homeland, as with most authors, is never-ending eternal love... Danilo Maric, author of The Mystic Best Man Rarely does it happen in a first poetry publication for these four sides of poetry - its east, north, west and south, to be found in the same place! When these four things (loneliness, travel, love, and finding yourself ) are found in one place, the poet is evidently in his/her own center. And its a great sign for the start of an interesting poetic journey, whose future results are to be expected. Prof. Dr. Venko Andonovski, author of The Navel of The World The gift of this poetry is that it reminds us that although the details of our experiences are different, the emotions we feel about them are universal. With simple, beautiful language, these poems create images that conjure the familiar feelings of love, loss, joy, longing and acceptance. Let it quietly slip into your heart and connect you with the stream to which we all belong. Staci Backauskas, author of The Fifth Goddess

An Ocean of Light

Contemplation, Transformation, and Liberation

For people drawn to a life of contemplation, the dawning of luminous awareness in a mind full of clutter is deeply liberating. In the third of his best-selling books on Christian contemplative life, Martin Laird turns his attention to those who are well settled in their contemplative practice. An Ocean of Light speaks both to those just entering the contemplative path and to those with a maturing practice of contemplation. Gradually, the practice of contemplation lifts the soul, freeing it from the blockages that introduce confusion into our identity and thus confusion about the mystery we call God. In the course of a lifetime of inner silencing, the flower of awareness emerges: a living realization that we have never been separate from God or from the rest of humanity while we each fully become what each of us is created to be. In contemplation we become so silent before God that the "before" drops away. Those whose lives have led them deeply into the silent land realize this, but not in the way that we realize that the square root of 144 is 12. Laird draws from a wide and diverse range of writers--from St. Augustine, Evagrius Ponticus, and St. Teresa of Avila to David Foster Wallace, Flannery O'Connor, Virginia Woolf, and Franz Wright--to ground his insight in an ancient practice and give it a voice in contemporary language. With his characteristic lyricism and gentleness, Laird guides readers through new challenges of contemplative life, such as making ourselves the focus of our own contemplative project; dealing with old pain; transforming the isolation of loneliness and depression into a liberating solidarity with all who suffer; and the danger of using a spiritual practice as a strategy to acquire and control.

The existence of man’s life is full of storms. Everyone is bound to face challenges. In June 2014, I flew into a spiritual storm, which inspired the title of this book Storms of Life. The details are too lengthy, but essentially I had a crisis of faith. It was hard and frightening, but I thank God I wasn’t swallowed up by the storm. During a storm, it is natural to panic. The natural response to the storms of life is doubt and fear but Jesus tells us the response to storms should be trust, because He is there to still the waves. With this book in your hand, you will learn about fifteen principles to traverse through and triumph the storms of life and certain factors that can cause one to stay in a prolonged storm and God’s role in causing these storms.

A Story About Grandpa Chuck

We first started writing our story for those who have not yet arrived on the scene, unborn generations who are destined to make their appearance in our family and in the family of man. Our aim was to narrow the gap for those who were too little or not even in this world, to have known or appreciated Grandpa Chuck. Then we thought about a wider audience - our close friends and beyond. Grandpa’s legacy to us all is about faith, love, courage and fortitude in accepting the vicissitudes of life and mysteries of death. Perhaps our readers, especially children and youth who are experiencing the sudden or gradual loss of someone they cherish dearly, will discover between these pages a gentle ray of hope. What could be brighter or more comforting than to imagine our loved ones that have passed from us, immersed in an ocean of light?

Oceans of Wisdom is a collection of stories about wisdom, the ocean’s wisdom, pleasures of the ocean, life at the beach, ocean facts and creatures, and some of my personal stories about life. Most chapters open with a quote filled with ideas. I have set up this book in small chapters as thoughts to take with you to the beach or to keep on your bedside table, to think about throughout your life. I share the stories so you can be inspired and also to strengthen you, wherever you may be on your journey through-out your life. Maybe this book will nudge you in the direction of something new or just help you to make some sense of the journey you are about to take. I believe that the time you spend, whether reading or being in nature, at the beach, getting a massage, or meditating, is the time for your soul. I hope when you read this book that it speaks to you in a special way, the way the ocean has in my life. I seek to capture the essence of the mind and to share the oceans of wisdom with you.

"Ruthell Price is a very important new voice in contemporary literature. Her storytelling is unique because it is told from the point of view of the average working person. Ruth does not try to dazzle with fancy metaphors or soliloquies. Her brand of storytelling is straight forward and simple. Her creations are relatable and refreshing ... Her story sheds light on the imperfections of a system that has become an infallible institution. This makes Ruth's stories so valuable. They force us to question the unquestionable, and that is the first step to improving flawed traditions." —Mark E. Swinton, writer, director, and producer at Tyler Perry Studios "... The manner in which she draws the reader into her own personal experiences leaves one with the sense of being a part of her journey. However, though each piece is entertaining, complete with humor, drama and the unexpected, there is far more to her work. As with all works of art that possess a deeper meaning, her tales invoke an evaluation of one's life ... a heightened attitude of gratitude and above all ... an increased desire to make faith, hope, and love an everyday priority." —Rick Mizuno, author, poet, musician, radio personality, and speaker "To witness spiritual growth, development, and maturity unfold before your very eyes is truly a privilege. Now, you can experience the same through the life and treasured moments inOcean of Smiles, Stream of Tears." —Bishop Donald R. Cook Sr., brother and senior pastor, California Harvest Tabernacle Bible Church, Inc.
