How can we nourish billions of people without risking our environment? How do we make our food safe? Feeding the Future: From Fat to Famine, How to Solve the World’s Food Crises provides realistic, practical answers to these urgent and challenging questions. Building on the success of Fueling the Future, a national bestseller that was nominated for a National Business Book Award and a Canadian Science Writers’ Association Award, editors Andrew Heintzman and Evan Solomon once again assembled a collection of the clearest, brightest minds from around the world, this time to confront the problem of how we will all eat in the future. The contributors, who include such leading thinkers on food as William I. Atkinson, Kelly Brownell, Frances Moore Lappe and Anna Lappe, Ian MacLachlan, Sylvia Ostry, Carl Safina, Eric Schlosser, and David Wheeler, tackle issues ranging from industrial farming and sustainability to global trade and nutrition. Their ingenious ideas encompass solutions to the developed world’s obesity epidemic, business models for sustainable food production, and emerging technologies and sciences, and they debate the merits of controversial techniques such as the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). By offering workable solutions to the world’s food crises, the contributors to Feeding the Future satisfy one of our most pressing needs: simple, healthy answers. Feeding the Future is the second book in the Ingenuity Project, an annual multimedia series that also includes CBC Radio and Web programs and a magazine partnership with Maclean’s. [582] .

SMUGGLER'S BLUES The Saga of a Marijuana Importer

By Brown, Jay Carter

Ecw Press. Near Fine. 2007. First Edition. Softcover. 1550227831 . Excellent condition, clean and unmarked. Cover has a light scuffing & very light wear to corners. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 240 pages; Mobsters, murder, betrayal, and revenge are the raw components of this candid look into the day–to–day life of a modern–day marijuana smuggler. Told from the viewpoint of an impressionable young entrepreneur named Jay Carter Brown, the book quickly draws the reader into the gritty underbelly of the international drug trade. The story begins with minor–league smuggling scams between Canada and the Caribbean that soon escalate to multi–ton shipments of grass and hash from the Caribbean and the Middle East. All goes well for a time, but as the stakes grow higher, the inevitable setbacks occur. When Jay teams up with a crusty old bank robber named Irving, he also inherits a host of other felons who come out of jail to visit his new partner, ex–cons such as: Randy the hit man who liked to practise his fast draw in front of a mirror; Simon, the drug–running pilot; and Chico Perry, who smoked reefer in his pipe while robbing banks and shooting it out with the cops. Drug–runners, police, jealous friends, and rival gangs all contribute to this extraordinary story told by a young man who became involved at the highest levels of the drug trade, and lived to tell about it. Smuggler’s Blues is a rare opportunity to experience life in another world — a world where survival relies on brains, brawn, and a generous measure of good luck. [447-noto] .
