"Perfect summertime reading—preferably with a friend nearby who can be constantly interrupted with unsettling facts." —Daily Mail (UK ) Benjamin Franklin was a pioneering scientist, leader of the Enlightenment, and a founding father of the United States. But perhaps less well known is that he was also the first person to use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on an electric-shock victim. Odder still, it was actually mouth-to-beak resuscitation on a hen that he himself had shocked. Welcome to some of the weirdest and most wonderful experiments ever conducted in the name of science. Filled with stories of science gone strange, Electrified Sheep is packed with eccentric characters, irrational obsessions, and extreme experiments. Watch as scientists attempt to nuke the moon, wince at the doctor who performs a self-appendectomy, and catch the faint whiff of singed wool from an electrified sheep.

Jove Hendricks wishes he had never moved to Shangbei: it's too hot and humid and the religious conflicts are even more intense than in his hometown Hamberwa. Soon war looms in this post-robot-apocalypse world of church politics and intrigue. Jove's boss, the Grand Priestess of the Good Faith sect, teams up with her allies against the Mukol doomsday faith, which promises relief from worldly misery by destroying the cause of all human suffering: the earth itself. On top of the political bickering, Jove suffers from a recurring nightmare in which he sees a place he dubbed the "Dome of Souls" - a giant hall where he lies immobile and suspended in thin air among billions of people. One night, the Dome gives Jove a four-word message that can save the world. Trouble is, he doesn't understand what "Lenny escaped and survived" means. The only one who does is Grand Priest Shavendra, the head of the Mukol doomsday cult that wants to destroy the planet.

For many new entrants to the alpaca industry a major allure is the thought of breeding these beautiful, intelligent and easily-handled animals. The challenging question that new breeders must ask themselves is “Why do I want to breed alpacas?” This leads to other vital questions – “Huacaya, suri, or both?”; “White, coloured, or a bit of everything?”; “How much do I need to spend?”; “How many should I buy?” For some people purchasing alpacas, the initial reason is as a small-scale hobby farm. However for many of these people, as they begin to breed and learn more about their alpacas, their focus changes and they use their knowledge to improve the quality of their stock – whether for fibre production, for stud breeding, or with an eye to winning show ribbons. This book is a basic guide to some of the skills and practices of alpaca production. This guide covers information on alpaca production including health, breeding and farming, nutritional needs and breeding to improve fleece. Table of contents: · The Australian Alpaca industry in Australia · Alpaca breeds · Farming alpacas · Farming alpacas as a breeding enterprise · Farming alpacas for meat production · Alpacas as guardian animals · Alpacas as pets on small acreages · Farm infrastructure · The digestive system and how it works · Alpaca nutrition · Pasture and land management · Breeding to improve fleece · Fleece assessment · Preparation of fleece for processing · The genetics of alpaca breeding · Purchasing decisions · Health problems and preparing for the vet · Digestive disorders and dental conditions · Vitamin and mineral deficiencies · Poisoning and liver disease · Parasite worms, fluke and ticks · Extremes of heat and cold · Injuries · Pregnancy, birthing and neonatal problems · Biosecurity, record keeping and transport · Alpaca shows · Management planner
