This book brings together scientific evidence and experience relevant to the practical conservation of wild birds. The authors worked with an international group of bird experts and conservationists to develop a global list of interventions that could benefit wild birds. For each intervention, the book summarises studies captured by the Conservation Evidence project, where that intervention has been tested and its effects on birds quantified. The result is a thorough guide to what is known, or not known, about the effectiveness of bird conservation actions throughout the world. The preparation of this synopsis was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council and Arcadia.
Explores the living spiritual tradition surrounding birds in Native American culture • Pairs scholarly research with more than 200 firsthand accounts of bird signs from traditional Native Americans and their descendants • Examines the legends, wisdom, and powers of the birds known as the gatekeepers of the four directions—Eagle, Hawk, Crow, and Owl • Provides many examples of bird sign interpretations and human-bird communication that can be applied in your own encounters with birds Birds are our strongest allies in the natural world. Revered in Native American spirituality and shamanic traditions around the world, birds are known as teachers, guardians, role models, counselors, healers, clowns, peacemakers, and meteorologists. They carry messages and warnings from loved ones and the spirit world, report deaths and injuries, and channel divine intelligence to answer our questions. Some of their “signs” are so subtle that one could discount them as subjective, but others are dramatic enough to strain even a skeptic’s definition of coincidence. Pairing scholarly research with more than 200 firsthand accounts of bird encounters from traditional Native Americans and their descendants, Evan Pritchard explores the living spiritual tradition surrounding birds in Native American culture. He examines in depth the birds known as the gatekeepers of the four directions--Eagle in the North, Hawk in the East, Crow in the South, and Owl in the West--including their roles in legends and the use of their feathers in shamanic rituals. He reveals how the eagle can be a direct messenger of the Creator, why crows gather in “Crow Councils,” and how shamans have the ability to travel inside of birds, even after death. Expanding his study to the wisdom and gifts of birds beyond the four gatekeepers, such as hummingbirds, seagulls, and the mythical thunderbird, he provides numerous examples of everyday bird sign interpretations that can be applied in your own encounters with birds as well as ways we can help protect birds and encourage them to communicate with us.

During the Ming Dynasty numerous new animal themes were created to convey political and ethical messages current at court. As the result a sophisticated language of Chinese animal painting was developed, employing both the animals' symbolic associations and homonymic puns. Hou-mei Sung's exciting rediscovery of some of these lost meanings has led to a full-scale investigation of the evolving history of Chinese animal painting. Distinct symbolic meanings were associated with individual motifs, but all animals were assigned a place in the universe according to the Chinese concept of nature. From the very early yin/yang cosmology to later developments of Daoist and Confucian philosophies and ethics, Chinese animals gained new meanings related to their historical contexts. This book explores these new findings, using the colorful animal images and their rich and evolving symbolic meanings to gain insight into unique aspects of Chinese art, as well as Chinese culture and history.

In this fascinating, informal approach to art appreciation, an eminent Indian scholar reveals the crucial difference between merely looking at and really seeing painting and sculpture, drawing and architecture. And to the open-minded and sensitive observer, he shows how simple perceptions can be transmuted into darshana—the pure delight of union with the inner life of a work of art. The presentation is poetic, not technical, directed toward the general reader rather than the specialist. The author begins by symbolizing certain powers of the imagination as the "seven little-known birds of the inner eye." Then he traces these energies of the "body-soul" through a wide range of aesthetic response—from the first, almost involuntary discriminations lines, colors, and forms to the insights attained by the "third eye" of total vision. Illustrated and discussed are the superb murals and breathtaking architecture of India; ancient symbols and modern experiments; the landscape paintings of Song China and the works of major Western artists.

As a servant of Lord Jesus Christ, in the beginning of November 2008, under the calling of the Lord, I step into an amazing journey to write the book ?Build An American ARK-the Strategy and Method for U.S. Economic Revival? during the time of the 2008 economic crisis. In the past five years, the mission from the Lord led me from one station to another, the Grace of God continually carries me in the journey to discover the hidden treasure and economic strength in this land, a land of brave and freedom and dream, to study in depth the poison roots and cancers of U.S. economic and political system which are endangering the U.S. Constitution Dream and our nation's tomorrow. The zeal for our nation and people, the zeal for the Word of God brought me to the realm of Rekindle the Hope in America. Now, this book ?Deliver the Urgent Messages for America -the Urgency for U.S. Economic System Reform? is born. Our nation is like a train, where we came from and where we head to depend on who controls the system and who we listen to, the Truth of God or the lost world? It is written in Micah 6:8, the word spoke from the prophet is the Word of God and the Will of God: "?He has showed you, O man, what is good and what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God?." If U.S. government and its systems act justly and love mercy and walk humbly with the Most High Living God-the Creator of the Universe, the train of America will be led to real Hope-the Hope from above. May God's Word and His Holy Presence Rekindle the Hope in our hearts. God is Good! He makes beautiful things out of the dust and ash. His Love endures forever. ?Ling Ling Shi, author
