Download and read online Other Animals in Twenty First Century Fiction in PDF and EPUB This book is about ordinary animals and how they are imagined in twenty-first century fiction. Examining contemporary animal representations and the fraught and potent distinctions humans fashion between themselves and all other animals, it asks how a range of novels make, re-make or un-make traditional conceptions of the creatures we love, admire, eat, vilify and abuse. Other Animals’ detailed readings of horses, an animalised human, a donkey, ants, chickens and chimpanzees develop new critical practices in Literary Animal Studies. They explore the connections between fictional animal representation, narrative form, ethics, and the lives and warm bodies of the real-world creatures that precede and exceed our imagination. Human-animal relationships are conditioned by our imaginative shapings of other animals, and by our sense of distinction from them, and Other Animals opens out how fictional animal forms and tropes respond to, participate in, or challenge the ways animals’ lives are lived out in consequence of human imaginings of them.
Download and read online Who Do You Think You Are in PDF and EPUB Rev. James Wesley Straughn takes you through a complex story of mankind, which includes some of the various thoughts about beginnings. It contains thought provoking answers to some of life's mystery questions. Why a creation called mankind? What's our purpose? What's our destiny? How did we get so far off track? Why can't we get along with each other? Can we have any hope for the future? This book presents a "map" of the life of mankind that should allow you to discover who you are and where you are in God's plan for mankind. It contains some surprising revelations about many familiar and unfamiliar subjects, some of which are very controversial. Rev. (Jim) Straughn and his wife Shirley were married in 1954 and have 7 children, 25 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren (and still counting). Jim became a Christian in 1949 at age 15, and after a 21+ years Air Force Career, became entrenched in the Gospel of Jesus Christ while working full time to retirement as a Senior Telephone Engineer. He was an accomplished Air Force Instructor, and while studying under Bishop Herman Curtis Stokes, he moved into a depth of understanding of the Word and Kingdom of God at an uncommon pace. Many men of God, from 1949 to date, have influenced his hunger to question, research and dig deep into the concepts and context of scriptural subjects. Rev. Straughn credits the Holy Spirit for his education of the Word, and development of his own unique presentation of God's Word. He was pastor of a church in Washington State for 4 years wherein it became clear his pulpit ministry was teaching.

Download and read online Insight into Influenza Viruses of Animals and Humans in PDF and EPUB This book provides salient information on all aspects of influenza/flu viruses affecting animals and humans. It specifically reviews the properties and replication of influenza viruses; their evolution and emergence; epidemiology; role of migratory birds in disease transmission; clinical signs in humans, animals and poultry; pathogenesis and pathogenicity; public health importance and potential threats; diagnosis; prevention and control measures; and pandemic preparedness. Influenza/flu viruses evolve continuously and jump species causing epidemics as well as pandemics in both human and animals. During the past 150 years, various strains of influenza virus like the Spanish flu, Asian flu, Hong Kong flu, bird flu and swine flu were responsible for high mortality in humans as well as birds. High mutation rates, antigenic shifts, drifts, reassortment phenomena, and the development of antiviral drug resistance all contribute to ineffective chemotherapy and vaccines against influenza viruses. Due to their devastating nature, high zoonotic implications and high mortality in humans and poultry, they have a severe impact on the socioeconomic status of countries. Disease awareness, rapid and accurate diagnosis, surveillance, strict biosecurity, timely adoption of appropriate preventive and control measures and pandemic preparedness are crucial to help reduce virus transmission, thus reducing clinical cases, deaths and pandemic threats.

Download and read online On the Trail of Ebola in PDF and EPUB 'Just give me a few viruses.' When young researcher Guido van der Groen went to his boss with that request in 1976, it marked the start of an improbable career as a virus hunter.
