In a world of dwindling natural resources and mounting environmental crisis, who is devising ways of living that will work for the long haul? And how can we, as individuals, make a difference? To answer these fundamental questions, Professor Karen Litfin embarked upon a journey to many of the world´s ecovillagesÑintentional communities at the cutting-edge of sustainable living. From rural to urban, high tech to low tech, spiritual to secular, she discovered an under-the-radar global movement making positive and radical changes from the ground up. In this inspiring and insightful book, Karen Litfin shares her unique experience of these experiments in sustainable living through four broad windows - ecology, economics, community, and consciousness - or E2C2. Whether we live in an ecovillage or a city, she contends, we must incorporate these four key elements if we wish to harmonize our lives with our home planet. Not only is another world possible, it is already being born in small pockets the world over. These micro-societies, however, are small and time is short. Fortunately - as Litfin persuasively argues - their successes can be applied to existing social structures, from the local to the global scale, providing sustainable ways of living for generations to come.

Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) traut seinen Augen nicht: Auf einer Website mit Fotos vermisster Kinder hat jemand ein Bild gepostet, das ihn als kleinen Jungen zeigt. Das T-Shirt mit dem Ketchupfleck. Das markante Kinn. Kein Zweifel, der Junge ist er! Doch wenn er gar nicht bei seinen richtigen Eltern lebt, wer ist er wirklich? Schlagartig wird ihm klar, dass sein ganzes Leben eine Lüge sein muss. Als Nathan beginnt, nach seiner wahren Identität zu forschen, wird er plötzlich zur Zielscheibe hochprofessioneller Killer. Nur seiner Klassenkameradin Karen (Lily Collins) kann er jetzt noch trauen. Zusammen gelingt ihnen zwar im letzten Moment die Flucht, aber instinktiv weiß Nathan: Der Schlüssel zur Wahrheit liegt in seiner Vergangenheit und er muss die Dinge selbst in die Hand nehmen, wenn er das Geheimnis lüften will. Aber auch andere Gegner setzen sich auf seine Spur, um genau das zu verhindern...
If you are looking for a book with dating tips and tools to find the love of your life, this is NOT that book. This is a story about Cindy, a middle-aged woman who woke up one morning to learn she had been living a lie. Betrayed and broken, Cindy knew she needed to start over and learn to trust again. When faced with a crisis, some head to a retreat, discover religion or train for a marathon; not Cindy. Cindy didn´t believe she would find solace on a yoga mat or in the gym. Instead she chose an unorthodox path and challenged herself to go on 50 first dates in 52 weeks. Follow Cindy´s 18-month journey as she creates a fresh start for herself and her daughters. Making new friends, finding her purpose and travelling to places that made her feel happy and whole, gave Cindy the courage to wade through the murky waters of online dating in hopes of finding her soul mate. You don´t have to be single to enjoy this book. If you´ve ever been stuck, discouraged or scared to start over, this book will inspire you, nudge you to make a change or get comfortable with the idea of being uncomfortable because after all? YOLO! CINDY Drummond had envisioned writing a novel since early teens. A successful career in recruitment was her priority in her 20´s and the role of motherhood took precedent in her 30´s. The idea of writing a book seemed fleeting until her mid 40´s, when Cindy found herself suddenly single and increasingly lonely. While wading through the murky waters of online dating, Cindy realized that she finally had a story to share in hopes of helping other women in a similar situation. Cindy resides in Calgary, Canada with one loving husband, two daughters, two stepdaughters and two kitties. Cindy works full time for an award-winning home builder and is the creator of WOW! (WOMENONLYWEEKEND) an annual event that sells out every year in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. You can connect with Cindy on Facebook at facebook.com/womenonlyweekend or visit her website cindydrummond.ca, to sign up for updates, request an interview or share with her your dating experiences. In Cindy Drummond´s writing, you´ll hear the intimate and honest account of how something done ´´to her´´ - by someone she thought she loved - has led her to who she is today. She is a comfortable storyteller, pointing out the simplicity and complexities that exist in everything; from pure survival - to work - to daily living - and all relationships. The book is raw and vulnerable. At times heartbreaking and at others hilariously self-deprecating. She´s especially honest and poignant in her writing on love and anxiety. Ultimately, the story is about resilience and dignity among trying circumstances...with an underlying theme of hope. - Karen Keveryga
