This easy-to-follow, full-colour guide was created for instructors teaching plant structure at the high school, college, and university levels. It benefits from the experience of the authors, who in teaching plant anatomy over many years, came to realize that students learn best by preparing their own microscope slides from fresh plant samples. The exercises contained in this book have been tested, require minimal supplies and equipment, and use plants that are readily available. Detailed instructions are given for sectioning and staining of plant material. The book contains a glossary of terms, an index, and a list of suppliers of materials required. A CD-ROM of all the illustrations is included for easy downloading into PowerPoint presentations. "Although a number of new plant anatomy texts have been published in recent years, none is as innovative, exciting and user-friendly as "Teaching Plant Anatomy Through Creative Laboratory Exercises" by Peterson, Peterson and Melville. What makes this book so usable from high school biology courses on through to upper level university plant structure labs is the wealth of experience that the authors have incorporated into this comprehensive clearly illustrated text. Using mostly photomicrographs of hand sections and wonderfully clear colour illustrations, they cover all aspects of plant structure from organelles to organs. The book also outlines some easy to use techniques, such as hand sections and clearings and macerations, which will certainly be very useful for any plant related lab. This book really does bring plant anatomy to life and will be a must for any course that deals with plant structure even if it's just to prepare plant material for molecular techniques. An excellent contribution to any botanical teaching where you want your students to get a hands-on approach to the subject."... Dr. Usher Posluszny, University of Guelph

Harness the power of Hawaiian Shamanism to rapidly heal yourself using the power of your body, energy, and mind. Our bodies and minds are inextricably woven together in a complex and powerful way. In Instant Healing: Mastering the Way of the Hawaiian Shaman Using Words, Images, Touch, and Energy, readers will learn how to explore and strengthen that connection to promote wellness. Using the wisdom of Hawaiian shamanism, author Serge Kahili King offers a radical path towards drug-free healing. All forms of injury—whether mental or physical, from disease, trauma, or illness— incur physical tension and stress. King offers a radical reinterpretation by showing that this physical tension and stress is not the result of the injury or disharmony, but rather the cause of it. By working to eliminate this root stress readers can achieve physical and mental healing for themselves without resorting to invasive methods. Written in a jargon-free and easily accessible style, Instant Healing will teach you to use the power of words, the power of imagination, the power of touch, and the power of energy to aide in the healing of all types of ailments. This 20th anniversary edition includes a new introduction featuring a bonus healing technique. The book also features a special section on emergency techniques that can be used with a minimum of explanation to bring rapid relief. Instant Healing will transform the way you consider your body and empower you to take control in a new way.

This book examines the little understood end-of-art theses of Hegel, Nietzsche, and Danto. The end-of-art claim is often associated with the end of a certain standard of taste or skill. However, at a deeper level, it relates to a transformation in how we philosophically understand our relation to the ‘world’. Hegel, Nietzsche, and Danto each strive philosophically to overcome Cartesian dualism, redrawing the traditional lines between mind and matter. Hegel sees the overcoming of the material in the ideal, Nietzsche levels the two worlds into one, and Danto divides the world into representing and non-representing material. These attempts to overcome dualism necessitate notions of the self that differ significantly from traditional accounts; the redrawn boundaries show that art and philosophy grasp essential but different aspects of human existence. Neither perspective, however, fully grasps the duality. The appearance of art’s end occurs when one aspect is given priority: for Hegel and Danto, it is the essentialist lens of philosophy, and, in Nietzsche’s case, the transformative power of artistic creativity. Thus, the book makes the case that the end-of-art claim is avoided if a theory of art links the internal practice of artistic creation to all of art’s historical forms.
