How did a country that until 2010 had no organ donation system, become one of the world's organ transplant leaders? For years, China claimed that the organs came from executed prisoners, but the numbers didn't add up. Short wait times and a seemingly endless supply of donors, made China a popular destination for transplant surgeries that can take years of waiting in other countries. But the question no one was asking is where do these organs come from?. Until a group of researchers, including human rights lawyer David Matas and former Canadian MP David Kilgour, decided to investigate this mystery and found answers that were almost too shocking to believe. The story of how these two Nobel Peace Prize nominees pieced together the chilling evidence and began the battle against an industrial-scale crime against humanity, is a riveting tale of both personal triumphs and unimaginable horror. Exposing a form of evil we have yet to see on this planet.. Peabody Award for Documentary (2015). Association of International Broadcasters Award for Best International Investigative Documentary.

The Human Harvest asks the following: 1) What if the world stopped feeding cattle, and instead used that same grain to feed children? 2) What if our government decided to subsidize farmers and ranchers who raised children instead of cattle? 3) What keeps humans from giving the same care and medical attention to children as we do cattle? 4) Is it fair to let kids remain small and weak when we have anabolic steroids that could help them grow and eventually regain their intended size? 6) If a cure for AIDS could be found by implanting a microchip into children and the child were monitored and tracked every second of the day, should we implant children? Nebraskan Dan Freeman sells his 2000 head of cattle and opens a Freeman Farm in Zimbabwe, Africa. He is paid by the US and Zimbabwe governments for growing kids instead of cattle. Like cattle, the kids are implanted with microchips and growth hormones. The program becomes so successful Dan's son Tyler moves to Africa to open other Freeman Farms. The potential unintended results of the program should alarm you.

Dorothea Gray Johanson Montalvo Puente was a female serial killer, an extremely rare phenomenon in the annals of American crime. She took advantage of a flaw in the Social Security laws to carve a lifelong career out of exploiting elderly, ill, often-helpless people. She established herself in positions of trust in order to steal these people’s only source of income, then drugged them to expedite her chicanery and, finally, murdered them. Dorothea did not exist in a vacuum. She simply took full advantage of a system that fails to protect America’s most helpless citizens. A stubborn and unreasonable refusal to correct a faulty administrative code has perpetuated the callous exploitation of the elderly, allowing people like Dorothea to operate all over the country, in communities large and small.

The Complete Poems

Blake is undoubtedly one of the greatest lyricists in English poetry, yet his work is often complex and obscure. Many readers will be unfamiliar with the various political, social, religious, artistic, academic and literary issues that dominated Blake?s time. Alongside his involvement in radical politics Blake was fascinated by popular unscientific conjecture about the history of the British people after the Flood. Influenced by contemporary issues and long-forgotten fads, was often infused with an anger that was the product of personal arguments. Consequently, the style of Blake's narrative verse is not always easy to appreciate. This, the second edition of the acclaimed Blake: The Complete Poems, remains unrivalled for the basic and detailed information it provides for interpreting the poems. The text is clear with a minimum of the 'turned' lines that make Blake's narratives so awkward to read. This new edition will be illustrated in full colour with some of Blake?s visionary paintings and designs, in order to highlight to readers the full breadth of Blake?s genius. The inclusion of these plates sets this volume apart from all other editions.

Andrew Lincoln reads the poem in the light of two competing views of history: the biblical, which places history within the framework of Fall and Judgement, and that of the enlightenment, which sees history in terms of progress from primitive life to civil order. His reading offers an account of the poem that is more coherent - and accessible - than many previous accounts.

Two Centuries of Darwin is the outgrowth of an Arthur M. Sackler Colloquium, sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences on January 16-17, 2009. In the chapters of this book, leading evolutionary biologists and science historians reflect on and commemorate the Darwinian Revolution. They canvass modern research approaches and current scientific thought on each of the three main categories of selection (natural, artificial, and sexual) that Darwin addressed during his career. Although Darwin's legacy is associated primarily with the illumination of natural selection in The Origin, he also contemplated and wrote extensively about what we now term artificial selection and sexual selection. In a concluding section of this book, several science historians comment on Darwin's seminal contributions. Two Centuries of Darwin is the third book of the In the Light of Evolution series. Each installment in the series explores evolutionary perspectives on a particular biological topic that is scientifically intriguing but also has special relevance to contemporary societal issues or challenges. The ILE series aims to interpret phenomena in various areas of biology through the lens of evolution and address some of the most intellectually engaging, as well as pragmatically important societal issues of our times.

Wildlife Issues in a Changing World

Students of conservation encounter some of the most complex issues on our planet. The resolution of existing problems become more complex when humans create further stresses on the natural balance. Moulton and Sanderson brought the challenging issues in wildlife conservation into greater clarity in Wildlife Issues in a Changing World. The Second Edition of this definitive reference focuses more closely on the causes of wildlife issues. The examination of Jared Diamond's "Evil Quartet" (the four principal causes of extinction) provides a framework for categorizing and resolving these issues. The authors encourage the use of the scientific method basis for resolution - especially where environmental laws have failed. The three new chapters provide further counterpoints to preconceived notions. A two-part history of wildlife in the U.S. shows how wildlife had already been decimated by the year 1900. "Can Humans Manage Wildlife?" questions efforts to revive endangered species, acts which may inadvertently jeopardize the survival of other life. Viewing the natural order from prehistoric times to the present, Wildlife Issues in a Changing World, Second Edition gives students and instructors an all-encompassing introduction to past relations between humans and nature; explorations of current threats to species and their habitats; and recent "novel solutions," where humanity and industry have made adjustments to protect the natural order. Professionals will also find invaluable reminders of the importance of their work - the continuation and endurance of wildlife everywhere on Earth.
