Download and read online Wild Ideas in PDF and EPUB Wild Ideas looks deep into the forests, skies and oceans to explore how animals solve problems. Whether it's weaving a safe place to rest and reflect, blowing a fine net of bubbles to trap fish or leaping boldly into a new situation, the animals in our world can teach us a lot about problem-solving. From the creators of You Are Stardust, the book uses lyrical text grounded in current science alongside wonderfully detailed art to present problems as doorways to creative thinking. Wild Ideas encourages an enquiry-based approach to learning, inviting readers to indulge their sense of wonder and curiosity by observing the natural world, engaging with big ideas and asking questions. Praise for You Are Stardust: "This glorious synthesis of art and science invites discussion about our place in the world, where we come from, how we change and what makes us feel alive ... A terrific book for nurturing curiosity and fostering a feeling of enchantment." (Playing By The Book)

Download and read online Wild Idea in PDF and EPUB For more than forty years the prairies of South Dakota have been Dan O’Brien’s home. Working as a writer and an endangered-species biologist, he became convinced that returning grass-fed, free-roaming buffalo to the grasslands of the northern plains would return natural balance to the region and reestablish the undulating prairie lost through poor land management and overzealous farming. In 1998 he bought his first buffalo and began the task of converting a little cattle ranch into an ethically run buffalo ranch. Wild Idea is a book about how good food choices can influence federal policies and the integrity of our food system, and about the dignity and strength of a legendary American animal. It is also a book about people: the daughter coming to womanhood in a hard landscape, the friend and ranch hand who suffers great tragedy, the venture capitalist who sees hope and opportunity in a struggling buffalo business, and the husband and wife behind the ranch who struggle daily, wondering if what they are doing will ever be enough to make a difference. At its center, Wild Idea is about a family and the people and animals that surround them—all trying to build a healthy life in a big, beautiful, and sometimes dangerous land.

Download and read online The Power of Onlyness in PDF and EPUB A leading innovation expert illuminates how each of us can unlock the capacity of even our wildest ideas to make a unique contribution to the world Most of us long to make a dent in the universe, to leave a world that s better than the one into which we re born. Until recently, the only way to pursue this goal was by joining a big company or some other institution and rise in the ranks to have enough power to do so. Meanwhile, the rest of us with new and fresh takes kept getting told our ideas were too weird or too wild. In The Power of Onlyness, Nilofer Merchant offers a new pathway to make those wild ideas reality, and a model of a world in which everyone s ideas can count. Our onlyness is a spot that only we occupy a function of our history and experience, visions and hopes. It s through our onlyness, and the new power of social media, that we connect to others who share our sense of purpose and together bring about remarkable change. Filled with accounts of ordinary people who have exploited the possibilities of this new era, The Power of Onlyness demonstrates how the power of one can be tapped into to enlist the power of many. People such as Zach Wahls, a teenager who convinced the Boy Scouts of America to include kids who were gay. Or Kimberly Bryant, who established Black Girls Code to provide young and pre-teen girls of color opportunities to learn in-demand skills in technology and computer programming. Or Jamie Heywood, who began Patients Like Me as a Web community to shift how previously incurable diseases are now getting cured. These change agents blazed their own trails because they had no map to guide them, and their stories light a path for the rest of us to realize our own most passionate ideas."

But we can invite it back by designing landscapes that look and function more like they do in the wild: robust, diverse, and visually harmonious. Planting in a Post-Wild World by Thomas Rainer and Claudia West is an inspiring call to action dedicated to the idea of a new nature—a hybrid of both the wild and the cultivated—that can flourish in our cities and suburbs. This is both a post-wild manifesto and practical guide that describes how to incorporate and layer plants into plant communities to create an environment that is reflective of natural systems and thrives within our built world.

Packed with great photos of real families in the outdoors, Born to Be Wild contains easy-to-follow instructions for activities that require nothing more sophisticated than a small person's imagination and access to a little outdoor space. Nature lays on magical materials for free each season, from fallen leaves and twigs, moulted feathers, sand and shells, to mud, puddles and rain. Everything else you'll need for these activities is already hiding in your cupboards at home. No expensive art supplies of outward-bound kit required. All you need are the toolkit items at the front of the book - ordinary household essentials like scraps of paper, string, glue, recycled food containers and an empty jar or two.
