A vibrant, illustrated guide to over 100 common and charismatic mushrooms, with storytelling that explores the connection between humans, fungi, and art. In this charming and colorful illustrated guide, everyone from beginner mushroomers to advanced mycophiles can learn about the edible, the poisonous, and the strange: mushrooms named after fairies and demons, phallic specimens prized as aphrodisiacs, and mushrooms the color of precious jewels. Discover mushrooms that look so much like woodland birds they are shot at by hunters, mushrooms that glow in the dark, and so much more. Author Diane Borsato also sees mushrooms as a lens for examining human interaction with nature. Her engaging stories show readers how artists use mushrooms to explore the unexpected wilderness of cities, what happens to our bodies after we die, and how we perceive the world and ourselves.

Since the beginning of history, people have sought remedies for the many ills that have beset them, from illnesses afflicting the body to threats posed by evil and hostile individuals. In many folk healing and pagan traditions, it was believed that one must gain the assistance of the guardian spirit of a healing plant or substance through prayers or offerings before its chemical properties would be effective. The Church decried these spells and practices as pagan superstition but did not seek to exterminate these beliefs, instead transferring the responsibility for their healing powers to the apostles and saints.

Год 2022, планета Земля, начало Третьей мировой… Пускай происходящее пока называют спецоперацией, от этого на душе не легче. Если то, что происходит на Украине – ещё не она, пускай вялотекущая, какой тогда будет настоящая война?! Россия к ней готовится, но переводить экономику страны на мобилизационные рельсы начальство не хочет, а финансово-экономический блок этому сопротивляется, как может. Интересно, наши чиновники на что-то внятное, кроме имитации работы, способны, или это их предел? Касается всей массы того управленческого класса, который у нас в стране сходит за «национальную элиту». Заметно по «переговорному процессу». Как можно с нацистами надеяться договориться о денацификации?! Почему в Великую Отечественную войну такое никому в голову не приходило?

Название: Showboat: The Life of Kobe Bryant

Год: 2019
Формат: EPUB
Размер: 28 Мб
Язык: английский / English

Eighteen-time all-star; scorer of 81 points in a game; MVP and a shooting guard second only to Jordan in league history: Kobe Bryant is one of basketball's absolute greatest players, a fascinating and complicated character who knew when he was a mere boy that he would be better than Jordan on the court. The debate about whether he achieved that is a furious one--but Kobe has surpassed Jordan on the all-time scoring list and has only one less championship than Jordan (5 to Jordan's 6). He is set to retire after the 2015/16 season, just in time for Roland Lazenby's definitive biography of the player and the man. The Lakers are the flashiest team in all of sports, and the context in which Bryant played is salacious and exciting. Provocative stories mixed with good old fashioned basketball reporting make for a riveting and essential read for any hoops fan.

In the latest book in the multimillion-selling Killing Series, Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard tell the larger-than-life stories of Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and Muhammad Ali. The King is dead. The Walrus is shot. The Greatest is no more. Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and Muhammad Ali. These three icons changed not only the worlds of music, film, and sports, but the world itself. Their faces were known everywhere, in every nation, across every culture. And their stories became larger than life—until their lives spun out of control at the hands of those they most trusted. In Killing the Legends, Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard explore the lives, legacies, and tragic deaths of three of the most famous people of the 20th century. Each experienced immense success, then failures that forced them to change; each faced the challenge of growing old in fields that privilege youth; and finally, each became isolated, cocooned by wealth but vulnerable to the demands of those in their innermost circles.
