            Root to Stem is a seasonal guide to living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle by putting nature at the heart of our physical and mental wellbeing.

Set out in four chapters, Root to Stem shares each of the four seasons' celebrations and health challenges, which natural ingredients are available, simple delicious recipes and easy to make herbal remedies, plus steps for how to beautify and support the environment. It will also include tips for foraging, growing a kitchen pharmacy, movement and exercise, and creative ways to reconnect with others and nature. Root to Stem is about discovery, pleasure, traditions, celebration and - ultimately - about how our eating choices can actually help to sustain the natural balance of our world.

            Safety-II in Practice: Developing the Resilience Potentials
             

            Safety-II in Practice: Developing the Resilience Potentials (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Safety-I is defined as the freedom from unacceptable harm. The purpose of traditional safety management is therefore to find ways to ensure this freedom . But as socio-technical systems steadily have become larger and less tractable, this has become harder to do. Resilience engin...eering pointed out from the very beginning that resilient performance - an organisation s ability to function as required under expected and unexpected conditions alike required more than the prevention of incidents and accidents. This developed into a new interpretation of safety (Safety-II) and consequently a new form of safety management. Safety-II changes safety management from protective safety and a focus on how things can go wrong, to productive safety and a focus on how things can and do go well. For Safety-II, the aim is not just the elimination of hazards and the prevention of failures and malfunctions but also how best to develop an organisation s potentials for resilient performance the way it responds, monitors, learns, and anticipates. That requires models and methods that go beyond the Safety-I toolbox. This book introduces a comprehensive approach for the management of Safety-II, called the Resilience Assessment Grid (RAG). It explains the principles of the RAG and how it can be used to develop the resilience potentials. The RAG provides four sets of diagnostic and formative questions that can be tailored to any organisation. The questions are based on the principles of resilience engineering and backed by practical experience from several domains. Developing the Resilience Potentials is for both the safety professional and academic reader. For the professional, it presents a workable method (RAG) for the management of Safety-II, with a proven track record. For academic and student readers, the book is a concise and practical presentation of resilience engineering.

            Because of continuing uncertainty about the long-term health effects of the sprayed herbicides on Vietnam veterans, Congress passed the Agent Orange Act of 1991. The legislation directed the Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) to request the Institite of Medicine to perform a comp...rehensive evaluation of scientific and medical information regarding the health effects of exposure to Agent Orange and other herbicides used in Vietnam to be followed by biennial updates. The 2010 update recommends further research of links between Vietnam service and specific health outcomes, most importantly COPD, tonsil cancer, melanoma, brain cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and paternally transmitted effects to offspring. --Publisher's description.
