Teddy didn’t commit the crime—but if he can’t find the real culprit, he’ll be sent to juvie as a convicted koala-napper.

They’re there for all of us, not just for the laird.’ The way the Bruachites saw it, poaching wasn’t a crime though you did have to keep an eye out for the local police. And it wasn’t just fishermen like Erchy and Hector who were experts – even a visiting vicar had been tempted by the fat salmon that filled the island’s streams and pools. Like Lillian Beckwith’s other books about life in the Hebrides, Lightly Poached is packed with the enchanting and hilarious adventures of her island friends. ‘A beautiful book this, smelling of earth and sea, carrying the atmosphere of the crofts, and forcing you to laugh aloud’ Oxford Mail ‘Delightfully tangy and stylish’ Sunday Express

Showcasing the range and depth of her work, these include selections from her previous three collections, as well as seven new stories. In the award-winning title story, “Poached Egg on Toast,” a small domestic drama balloons into a defining moment in a long-time marriage. “Accident” holds its dream-like spell over the reader as a woman struggles to make sense of what happened to her and her husband in a terrible car wreck. “In the Name of Love” explores a woman’s search for normalcy and connection in the midst of devastation during the 1990s Balkan War. A number of these stories showcase Itani’s ability to shine a clear light on what it feels like to be an outsider, displaced and disconnected from the world at hand.

Download and read online Edible Coatings to Control the Growth of Listeria Monocytogenes on Poached and Deli Turkey Products and the Effect of Growth Conditions on the Pressure Resistance Inactivation and Recovery of Pathogens in PDF and EPUB The relatively high prevalence of Listeria monocytogenes, E. coli O157:H7, and S. Typhimurium in various ready-to-eat (RTE) food products is of great concern to the food industry. The overall objective of this project was to assess the efficacy of edible coating and high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) processing technologies to enhance the safety of RTE turkey products. In the first phase of the study, we compared the antimicrobial efficacy of polysaccharide-based edible coatings (alginate, carrageenan, pectin, xanthan gum, and starch) incorporating nisin (500 IU/g), sodium lactate (SL, 2.4%), sodium diacetate (SD, 0.25%), and potassium sorbate (PS, 0.3%) and the commercial products, Novagard(TM) CB1 (0.25%) and Guardian(TM) NR100 (500 ppm) to inhibit L. monocytogenes on deli turkey. The coatings were applied onto the surface of deli turkey discs inoculated with ~ 3 log CFU/g of L. monocytogenes and stored at 4 ̊C for 30 days. The most effective treatments were alginate-based coatings supplemented with SL (2.4%)/PS (0.3%) which delayed growth of the pathogen with final counts reaching 1.2-5.6 log CFU/g lower than the control untreated samples. In the second part of the project, the influence of growth and recovery temperatures (15, 25, 35, and 40 ̊C), pressure levels (400 and 600 MPa), treatment temperatures (4, 20, and 40 ̊C) and recovery gaseous conditions (aerobic and anaerobic) on pressure resistance of Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7 and L. monocytogenes was investigated. Pressure inactivation of the bacterial pathogens was shown to increase as a function of the pressure levels and treatment temperatures. The temperature history and physiological age of the bacterial culture also influenced their pressure resistances. In general, early stage cells (representative of exponential phase) were more baro-resistant than late stage cells (representative of stationary phase) (P 0.05). Aerobic and anaerobic recovery conditions were not found to have any appreciable effect on bacterial recovery (P 0.05). In addition, recovery temperatures
Download and read online Fish in PDF and EPUB We are constantly being told about the benefits of eating fish and seafood - high in protein, low in fat and rich in nutrients.

Download and read online Situational Prevention of Poaching in PDF and EPUB For centuries, criminologists have looked for scientific ways to study, understand, and ultimately prevent crime. In this volume, a unique offense, poaching, is explored in various contexts to determine what opportunity structures favor this crime and how situational crime prevention may reduce its prevalence. The data sources used range from publically available secondary data about animal populations, to interviews with hunters, to actual law enforcement data collected inside protected areas. Various methods are utilized to look for patterns in poaching behaviour regarding where poachers strike, which species they target and their modus operandi. Collectively, the volume shows that principles of criminal opportunity theory and situational crime prevention are useful for studying and preventing poaching in a variety of contexts. The methods employed by each chapter are easily replicated and meant to stimulate empirical poaching research where data is available. While the theoretical grounding of this volume is drawn from criminology, it is written for a broad audience of academics, practitioners and those interested in wildlife conservation.
