Roadkill on the Highway to Heaven by Chonda Pierce Pdf

When life's left you flatter than a steamrolled possum, turn here for a little hope, humor, honesty, and encouragement from the Bible. It's the best of Chonda Pierce's celebrated Roadkill Reports to her fans, plus lots of new material, and it's perfect for reinflating your outlook--anytime, anywhere! Postcard from Chonda: "I tell jokes for a living. It's adventurous. But to do that, I have to fly for hours. I have to take a bus for days. I have to walk up steep stairs in skinny heels. In short, I sometimes take a beating like roadkill on a country highway! Life really is one long journey to heaven. My travel journal is filled with what I've learned along the way--the hurts, the laughter, the victories, the failings, the crowds and the loneliness, and mostly, the times I've seen God at work." --Chonda

American Roadkill by Don H. Corrigan Pdf

Slaughtered along our highways, roadkill may be observed regularly, but aren't likely to be given much thought. Research scientists, animal rights activists, roadkill artists, writers, ethicists and lyricists, however, are increasingly sounding the alarm. They report that we are killing the very animals we love, and are driving many of them to the brink of extinction. Detailing the death and destruction of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and insect pollinators, this study examines the ways in which we are thus jeopardizing our own futures. Beginning in the Model T era, biologists counted the common carnage of the time--cottontails, woodchucks, and squirrels, mostly. That record-keeping continues today. Beyond the bleak statistics, zoologists are rerouting migratory paths of animals and are advocating for cat and dog companions. This book illuminates both our successes and failures in keeping animals out of harm's way and what those efforts reflect about ourselves and our capacity to care enough to alter the road ahead.

Reflections on Roadkill between Mobility Studies and Animal Studies by Matthew Calarco Pdf

Roadkill is a recurrent but often unthought feature of modern life. Yet, consideration of the broader significance of the myriad social, ethical, and political issues related to roadkill has largely gone missing from mainstream scholarship and activism. This neglect persists even in fields such as mobility studies and animal studies that would otherwise seem to have a vested interest in the topic. This book aims to bring roadkill to the foreground of current discussions among scholars and activists in these fields in order to demonstrate that roadkill is a uniquely important site from which to understand and contest the machinations of the dominant social order. It argues that a careful examination of roadkill can help both to uncover the hidden violence of contemporary human-centered systems of mobility and to develop alternative modes of mobility for a renewed social life in common with our more-than-human kin.

Something Rotten by Heather L. Montgomery Pdf

An ALA Notable book An Orbis Pictus Recommended title When Heather L. Montgomery sees a rattlesnake flattened on the side of the road, her first instinct is to pick it up and dissect it--she's always wanted to see how a snake's fangs retract when they close their mouths, and it's not exactly safe to poke around in a live reptile's mouth. A wildlife researcher with a special penchant for the animals that litter the roadways, Heather isn't satisfied with dissecting just one snake. Her fascination with roadkill sets her off on a journey from her own backyard and the roadways of the American South to scientists and kids in labs and homes across the globe. From biologists who use the corpses of Tasmanian devils to investigate cures for a contagious cancer, to a scientist who discovered a whole new species of bird from a single wing left behind, to a boy rebuilding animal bodies from the bones up, to a restaurant that serves up animal remnants, Heather discovers that death is just the beginning for these creatures. This engaging narrative nonfiction is an eye-opening and irreverent look at the dead and dying animals that we pass by without a second thought--as well as a fascinating insight to the scientific research process.

The Moral Complexities of Eating Meat by Ben Bramble,Bob Fischer,Robert William Fischer Pdf

This volume collects twelve new essays by leading moral philosophers on a vitally important topic: the ethics of eating meat. Some of the key questions examined include: Are animals harmed or benefited by our practice of raising and killing them for food? Do the realities of the marketplace entail that we have no power as individuals to improve the lives of any animals by becoming vegetarian, and if so, have we any reason to stop eating meat? Suppose it is morally wrong to eat meat--should we be blamed for doing so? If we should be vegetarians, what sort should we be?

Slam Dunks and No-Brainers by Leslie Savan Pdf

In this marvelously original book, three-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Leslie Savan offers fascinating insights into why we’re all talking the talk—Duh; Bring it on!; Bling; Whatever!—and what this reveals about America today. Savan traces the paths that phrases like these travel from obscure slang to pop stardom, selling everything from cars (ads for VWs, Mitsubishis, and Mercurys all pitch them as “no-brainer”s) to wars (finding WMD in Iraq was to be a “slam dunk”). Real people create these catchy phrases, but once media, politics, and businesses broadcast them, they burst out of our mouths as celebrity words, newly glamorous and powerful. Witty, fun, and full of thought-provoking stories about the origins of popular expressions, Slam Dunks and No-Brainers is for everyone who loves the mysteries of language.

Roadkill Recipes by Patricia Leeuwenburg,Tim Leeuwenburg Pdf

"'Roadkill Recipes: Australian Wildlife on the Verge' portrays an overview of Australian roadkill with a twist for the gallivanting gourmet. The beautifully photographed book highlights the confronting issue of roadkill, emphasising important conservation and road safety messages whilst satirising glossy cookbooks and gourmet travel. There is increasing awareness of roadkill as an important conservation issue. The dual meaning of the title was chosen as a reminder that wherever roads encroach into wildlife habitat there will be wildlife: both on the verge of the road and in some cases on the verge of extinction. Our native animals use both the road and verge environment as transport corridors and as an easy, often preferable resource area. Unfortunately the indiscriminate, contemporary predator of this environment, the car or truck, can place vulnerable species or populations on the verge of extinction. Many native Australian species are already stressed from habitat loss, predation and disease. For those species, the added pressures of roadkill really can lead to wildlife populations existing 'on the verge'. We believe that bringing the subject of roadkill to a broader audience will encourage debate and build greater awareness of what to expect on the road, serving both road safety and wildlife conservation efforts.
