· Choosing the right chickens and housing for your garden size
· Exploring useful equipment, such as poultry feeders and drinkers
· Routine care for your chickens, including what to feed them on
· Outfoxing the fox - and other predators
· What to do with all those eggs!
· Dealing with parasites and ailments
· Broody hens and hatching eggs
With true-life portraits of chicken keepers, little known facts, and helpful and informative personal anecdotes, A Family Guide To Keeping Chickens, 2nd Edition is an easy and enjoyable read for anyone interested in keeping chickens.

The War on Normal People

Andrew Yang
Authors:
Andrew Yang

The shift toward automation is about to create a tsunami of unemployment. Not in the distant future--now. One recent estimate predicts 13 million American workers will lose their jobs within the next seven years-jobs that won't be replaced. In a future marked by restlessness and chronic unemployment, what will happen to American society?In The War on Normal People, Andrew Yang paints a dire portrait of the American economy. Rapidly advancing technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics and automation software are making millions of Americans' livelihoods irrelevant. The consequences are these trends are already being felt across our communities in the form of political unrest, drug use, and other social ills. The future looks dire-but is it unavoidable?In The War on Normal People, Yang imagines a different future - one in which having a job is distinct from the capacity to prosper and seek fulfillment. At this vision's core is Universal Basic Income, the concept of providing all citizens with a guaranteed income-and one that is rapidly gaining popularity among forward-thinking politicians and economists. Yang proposes that UBI is an essential step toward a new, more durable kind of economy, one he calls "human capitalism."

The Swamp Fox

John Oller
Authors:
John Oller

In the darkest days of the American Revolution, Francis Marion and his band of militia freedom fighters kept hope alive for the patriot cause during the critical British southern campaign." Employing insurgent guerrilla tactics that became commonplace in later centuries, Marion and his brigade inflicted enemy losses that were individually small but cumulatively a large drain on British resources and morale.Although many will remember the stirring adventures of the "Swamp Fox" from the Walt Disney television series of the late 1950s and the fictionalized Marion character played by Mel Gibson in the 2000 film The Patriot , the real Francis Marion bore little resemblance to either of those caricatures. But his exploits were no less heroic as he succeeded, against all odds, in repeatedly foiling the highly trained, better-equipped forces arrayed against him.In this action-packed biography we meet many colourful characters from the Revolution: Banastre Tarleton, the British cavalry officer who relentlessly pursued Marion over twenty-six miles of swamp, only to call off the chase and declare (per legend) that "the Devil himself could not catch this damned old fox," giving Marion his famous nickname Thomas Sumter, the bold but rash patriot militia leader whom Marion detested Lord Cornwallis, the imperious British commander who ordered the hanging of rebels and the destruction of their plantations "Light-Horse Harry" Lee, the urbane young Continental cavalryman who helped Marion topple critical British outposts in South Carolina but most of all Francis Marion himself, "the Washington of the South," a man of ruthless determination yet humane character, motivated by what his peers called "the purest patriotism."In The Swamp Fox , the first major biography of Marion in more than forty years, John Oller compiles striking evidence and brings together much recent learning to provide a fresh look both at Marion, the man, and how he helped save the American Revolution.

Everyday Family Recipes For Your Combination Microwave

Carolyn Humphries
Authors:
Carolyn Humphries

This book will give you the knowledge and confidence to creat complete meals for every time of day and occasion - quickly. It will also teach you how to bake great cakes and breads, and make simple snacks and side dishes. Many meals are complete in their own right or have different elements that can be cooked one after the other (food needs to 'rest' before serving so this is quite possible and still keeep it all hot.). But it can be used alongside your conventional hob. You may, for instance, want to quickly boil some rice or pasta to accompany a delicious meat, fish, chicken or vegetable main course in the combi. You can also use ti as a conventional microwave, grill or convection oven.
