Natural and human-made disasters are increasing around the world. Hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, tsunamis, droughts, and resultant famine, floods, and armed conflicts are constant reminders of the frailty of our human race. Global warming may cause whole island states to be submerged as the oceans rise. In the past these acute and recurring crises have been met by the international community responding to UN and media appeals. The economic collapse of nations is now a reality; some of those most affected had been traditional, generous donors to disaster relief operations. It is unlikely—probably impossible—that they will be able to continue to contribute overseas when their own domestic needs are unmet. A recent New York Times front page report suggested that one of the few domestic issues to have bipartisan support was to cut the foreign aid budget. This book analyzes the global economic forecast and the United Nations pattern of philanthropy, provides a case study of how one nation with a tradition of giving will cope in the face of a marked reduction in flexible funds and then provides thoughtful chapters on new approaches to disaster preparedness and disaster response.

Horticultural expert Vincent Simeone helps you plan your green garden in this practical, holistic guide. With detailed, strategic timelines for both short-term and long-term gardening techniques, Grow More with Less lets you put your best foot forward in creating an efficient, sustainable home landscape. From composting and mulching to planting trees, author Vincent Simeone covers all the eco-friendly essentials in one straightforward handbook. Simeone makes the what, how, and why of sustainable gardening unmistakably clear: why we should plant for the long-term, how to make the best plant selections possible, how to manage invasive species, how to make the most of your lawn (regardless of its size), the importance of IPM (integrated pest management) in fighting insects and pests, how to conserve water with proper irrigation, installing rain barrels and cisterns, and more. Even when the solution is to do nothing—for instance, leaving some parts of a lawn un-mowed in order to save time and money while attracting local wildlife—Grow More with Less enables you to confidently make the call. With effective, time-proven recommendations like these, field-tested in a large botanical garden and adapted for home use by Vincent Simeone, Grow More with Less is your complete step-by-step personal roadmap for green gardening.

This is a new edition of Herald Press's all-time best-selling cookbook, helping thousands of families establish a climate of joy and concern for others at mealtime. The late author's introductory chapters have been edited and revised for today's cooks. Statistics and nutritional information have been updated to reflect current American and Canadian eating habits, health issues, and diet guidelines. The new U.S. food chart—My Plate—was slipped in at the last minute and bplaced alongside Canada's Food Guide. But the message has changed little from the one that Doris Janzen Longacre promoted in 1976, when the first edition of this cookbook was released. In many ways she was ahead of her time in advocating for people to eat more whole grains and more vegetables and fruits, with less meat, saturated fat, and sugars.

Can't say no when you see the world "SALE"? Even though you struggle with debt and have no savings? Do you wonder at the end of the month where your money went? More With Less will show you a way out of the vicious grip of budget-destructive shopping habits and teach you how to set up a real, tailor-made financial plan that covers all your needs. Finances don't have to be painful. The book presents: (1) the main reasons behind compulsive shopping and hoarding and how to overcome them, and (2) how to downsize your expenses without depriving yourself of what you love to splurge on. This is not a "get rich in a month" book. I can promise, however, that following the tips in this book, you'll become more aware of your self-sabotaging spending and hoarding habits, gradually eliminate your debt, learn how to save, account for all of your expenses, and never feel your accounts running low again. The budgeting techniques presented in this book are applicable to any income, and you can adjust it to your needs to serve you the best. Within a few minutes you can create a budget that keeps your financial anxiety away. My name is Michelle Moore... I am a recovering shopaholic and not-so-extreme hoarder. I have been earning my bread as a freelancer in the past few years. Even though I never knew how much I would have the next month, I was always able to have enough for my essential expenses, personal pleasures, and savings. I was also able to leave behind my unhealthy spending and hoarding habits and fully embrace a minimalist lifestyle. Reset your expenses: pay yourself first, spend on what truly matters. -Learn the psychology behind compulsive shopping and compulsive hoarding. -Control your spending impulses. -Become an aware consumer. Grow your financial stability every day. -Learn multiple budgeting methods and choose the best for you. -Start a 7-step program that grants you financial security. -Financial plans to eliminate debt. -Become better with numbers, calculations, projections, and analyses. Nobody teaches us in school about how to develop healthy spending habits, what's the difference between need and want, what does budgeting mean, how can we save for our future. No wonder we don't know how to do any of them. As adults, it is our responsibility to get well-informed about something that grants our physical survival. Like it or not, budgeting is a must-know skill if you have an income, you spend and consume. The budgeting tips in this book help you to keep track of your finances without any headache. Follow where your money goes, where it comes from and where can you save. Steadily accumulate savings, clear yourself of debts and live your life as a financially responsible adult.
