Our oceans face levels of devastation previously unknown in human history--from pollution, from overfishing, and through damage to delicate aquatic ecosystems affected by global warming. Ocean biodiversity is being decimated on par with the fastest rates of rain forest destruction. More than 80 per cent of pollutants in the oceans come from sewage and other land-based runoff (some of it radioactive). The rest is created by waste dumped by commercial and recreational vessels. In many areas and for many fish stocks, there are no conservation or management measures existing or even planned. Climate author Albert Bates explains how ocean life maintains adequate oxygen levels, prevents erosion from storms, and sustains a vital food source that factory fishing operations cannot match--and why that should matter to all of us, whether we live near the ocean or not. He presents solutions for changing the human impact on marine reserves, improving ocean permaculture, and putting the brakes on the ocean heat waves that destroy sea life and imperil human habitation at the ocean's edge.

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press In the spring of 2000, Mike Medberry, a longtime advocate of conservation with American Lands, the Wilderness Society, and the Idaho Conservation League, suffered a stroke in the remote wilderness of the Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho. He was rescued after nearly a full day lying alone and contemplating death in one of the harshest yet most beautiful landscapes in the lower forty-eight states. Medberry was flown to a nearby hospital about the same time that Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt, on behalf of President Clinton, came to Craters of the Moon to support protecting three-quarters of a million acres as a unique national monument, a conservation effort in which Medberry himself had already been personally involved. This story interweaves Medberry’s own struggle to speak, walk, and think with the struggle to protect this brutal, lava-bound, but for him gentle landscape. Medberry’s recovery from the stroke and his struggle to protect Craters of the Moon is a story of renewal, restoration, accommodation, and, ultimately, of finding workable compromises to some of life’s most difficult problems.

Spotlighting news articles, historical accounts, and firstperson interviews, this chronicle of human interactions with monsters will convince even the most hardened skeptic of the existence of the bogeyman, bigfoot, werewolves, and swamp creatures. Offering an array of wild reports—from the police officer who begrudgingly responded to a call about a longhaired woman flying over a suburban neighborhood only to find himself calling for backup when she attacked his patrol car to the motorist whose headlights illuminated a sevenfoot tall, wolflike creature that stood on its hind legs—this historical record highlights scary and unbelievable narratives. From slightly demented humans to spinetingling paranormal encounters, each outlandish occurrence is detailed with thorough research and recounted with a storyteller's crafted voice.

Keira Brannon is hallucinating. First it's a door hovering above the road; then it's a tree in the middle of her living room. But with her parents constantly fighting and her best friend not speaking to her, Keira can't tell anyone about her breakdown. Instead, she throws herself into her music, her one ticket out of her dead-end town. Then she meets Walker. Keira can't ignore their electric connection - or the fact that somehow Walker seems to be able to see the same strange, dark and shadowy images. Finally she feels like she has someone to confide in. But trusting Walker may be more dangerous than Keira could have ever imagined. The more she confides in him, the more intense - and frightening - her visions become. Because Walker is not what he appears to be. And neither are her visions…
As they reached the edge of town, the Darkside forest gave way to rockier terrain.
Beyond it, where the edge of Maine trailed off into the ocean, Keira could see the

Jimmy doesn't care much for Heaven. It's boring and he has a strong distaste for the company. In order to relieve his boredom he decides to take classes in, what he considers, the easiest job an angel can do while not getting sucked into the soap opera: Becoming a cupid. He glides through the classes with a low D, not exactly caring about the subject matter and graduates second to last in his class. Now the challenge begins, his first assignment is to find someone for Ian; a scrawny web worker who's never known Love. Without much thought, he puts Ian together with Stacie; a goth who's only experiences with love were too painful for her to deal with. All was going well until Pedro, a Demon, and the best of his kind, came in to test the strength of the couple's new love. If he's able to break them apart, they were never meant to be. If he can not, the love was true. Of course, it can't be that simple... can it?

Ocean Pollution provides a unique look at the effects of estuarine and coastal pollution on resource species. One of the primary objectives of the book is to provide an accurate assessment of the state of the inshore marine environment and its inhabitants. Coastal habitat degradation is discussed, and principal findings from modeling and other research efforts are analyzed and evaluated. The research undertaken thus far extends beyond the effects of pollution on resource population size to disease effects in fish and humans, effects on aquaculture, and effects on productive systems of the oceans. These far-reaching consequences - and potential consequences - of ocean pollution are expertly presented, and suggestions for mitigation are made. Realistic scenarios about the future effects of ocean pollution are outlined, providing a powerful tool for researchers and regulators.

Because her mother refuses to believe that her stepfather, Alex Sorenson, is molesting her, eleven year old Jasmine Kameli has decided to run away. As the young girl sneaks through the vegetation surrounding Alex’s Maui mansion where she and her mother, Kinau, have lived for the past two years, she is startled to hear the motor of her stepfather’s car. She is terrified. Have they already discovered that she’s missing? NO! It turns out that there is a dead man in the trunk of Alex’s Mercedes, and Jasmine sees his lackey, Jeremy, toss the body into the waters of a nearby lagoon. Thus begins the story of the brave little girl’s struggle to reach her Tutu (aunt) Yalana’s house in Hana, a very difficult location to reach without an auto or an adult to accompany one on a tour bus or boat. The terrified Jasmine’s initial need is to get out of the area, far away from her stepfather’s Kihei residence. She has decided to go to Lahaina first where there is a well-known youth shelter, but there is no public transportation available until the next morning. She has cut her beautiful long coal black hair and hopes to pass as a boy. Crossing the highway to a rental condominium complex located on the lagoon, she discovers there are lounges on the patio of each apartment. She decides to curl up on one till morning since all the apartments are completely silent. Teri and Jim Collins are the residents in the apartment next to the patio where Jasmine has chosen to curl up. The couple is on vacation. Their plan is to rest, relax and visit all the sights. They do not wish to be involved in solving any mystery or crime which usually happens to them on their travels. Early in the morning, Teri discovers the sleeping child on their patio. Jim is suspicious of Jasmine’s explanation of a sick mother in the hospital. She says her name is Leonardo. Jasmine is terrified that Jim might contact the police for many of the officers are friends of Alex Sorenson. When there is a sudden disturbance in the lagoon’s waters–the recovery of a body which captivates the attention of the Collins, Jasmine escapes. She runs down the highway and catches the bus to Lahaina. The murdered man in the lagoon turns out to be Ed Nakamura , the county supervisor representing Molokai where Alex has several commercial ventures. Alex is very disturbed that Jasmine has run away and delegates Jeremy to search for her. His wife, Jasmine’s mother, has already phoned her sister in Hana, but Yalana has not seen nor heard from Jasmine. In the novel, we follow the child’s struggles to reach Hana and her aunt. Jim and Teri become involved in helping the two, Jasmine and Yalana, which results in a trip to Molokai, a frantic chase up the trail from the former leper colony and a hazardous boat trip to Oahu to contact the FBI. The women are placed in protective custody in a safe house on the far side of the island of Oahu. Jeremy, Alex’s employee, manages to kidnap Jasmine and return her to Maui where the explosive denouement takes place.
