Early recognition and treatment of failing kidney can save many years of life and resources for individuals and economy.

This three-part series was created especially for those in awareness, many of whom are baby boomers who have experienced dreams, visions, and premonitions about the coming Planet X tribulation and the Nibiru Pole Shift. Most since they were children and now as grandparents, they find themselves wrestling with a dilemma of denial, procrastination and deadly locations. Most have big hearts and small wallets. Frustrated by their lack of wherewithal, they tilt at impenetrable walls of denial thrown up by their families and friends. All too often the result is a heart rending process of alienation and rejection capped by the greatest frustration of all. That is the failure to convince loved ones to relocate to safe areas while there is still time. Eventually many in awareness find themselves standing at the precipice of a difficult question. Must they acclimate themselves to some form of a death wish so they can die with those they care for, even though it will be the needless result of self-imposed ignorance and denial? This series tackles this dilemma with a clear message. The time has come to step back from that hopeless precipice. Yes, you can do it! Turn about, embrace your awareness and march forward in a new direction of hope. The first step is to understand the true causalities of denial, for as impenetrable as denial may seem, there are hairline cracks and they can be widened in loving ways. And there is more. Those in awareness understand that there are no sugar daddies offering easy and magical solutions to their dilemmas. It is why this series offers a self-help toolkit of hope for those with the ambition to march beyond the stalemate of denial. One they can use to lay groundwork of safety for themselves and their loved ones for the coming decade-long, Planet X tribulation.

Das neue Buch von Bestsellerautor und Läufer-Guru Christopher McDougall Wie sehen echte Helden aus? Für Bestsellerautor und Läufer-Guru Christopher McDougall war klar: nicht wie die muskelbepackten Rohlinge aus Comics und Hollywoodstreifen. Inspiriert von den Überlebenskünstlern der griechischen Mythologie, wie Odysseus und Herkules, macht sich McDougall auf die Suche nach den Geheimnissen von Kraft und Ausdauer. Seine Erkenntnisse: Ein Held ist, wer zuerst an andere denkt, statt an die Lorbeeren; wer seinen Körper durch unterschiedliche Bewegungen – Laufen, Schwimmen, Klettern – fit hält, statt mit Hanteln den Bizeps zu stählen; wer aus den simplen Gaben der Natur die besten Produkte gewinnt, statt Geld für Ernährungsmoden zu verschwenden. McDougalls neue Reportage ist ein Handbuch für alle, die sich für Spaß an Bewegung und körperliche Gesundheit interessieren, denn, so sein Fazit: Der Stoff, aus dem die Helden sind, steckt in uns allen.

"Ein wenig Leben" handelt von der lebenslangen Freundschaft zwischen vier Männern in New York, die sich am College kennengelernt haben. Jude St. Francis, brillant und enigmatisch, ist die charismatische Figur im Zentrum der Gruppe – ein aufopfernd liebender und zugleich innerlich zerbrochener Mensch. Immer tiefer werden die Freunde in Judes dunkle, schmerzhafte Welt hineingesogen, deren Ungeheuer nach und nach hervortreten. "Ein wenig Leben" ist ein rauschhaftes, mit kaum fasslicher Dringlichkeit erzähltes Epos über Trauma, menschliche Güte und Freundschaft als wahre Liebe. Es begibt sich an die dunkelsten Orte, an die Literatur sich wagen kann, und bricht dabei immer wieder zum hellen Licht durch.
