So long as you have food in your mouth, you have solved all questions for the time being. So begins Good Enough to Eat?, which challenges Kafka’s culinary sentiments and proceeds to unravel our complex and deeply personal relationship with food. Including interviews from both sides of the (farmyard) fence; from biologists to farmers and nutritionists to activists, Good Enough to Eat? charts the history of GM foods from the laboratory to the global dinner plate. Equally informative and entertaining, Godwin chronicles the social, political and philosophical arguments for and against GM crops, and the science and knowledge behind the battle for global food security and sustainability.

The journey is the reward, even though, the actual target can no longer be seen. In the past years, I often lost my way. This path of life began by following my dreams. A path, full of stones, still blocking my way. At the beginning there was so much love, a love we felt was worth fighting for. A love, full of hope and desire, between an Austrian woman and a strong, unique Puerto Rican soldier. The challenging path of life we walked together, whilst living with the US army and trying to establish a home between our different worlds and cultures, lead us to many joyful and sad hours.
This book presents several chapters written by this author using the pseudonym Ole Ed. The impetus for my writing these stories was to reduce the burden that I experienced from a very hectic air travel schedule that I endured before finally retiring from the Fortune 5 corporation that I was employed by for thirty years! I became bored from picking up the same ole magazines on airplanes and reading the same ole stuff. I hope that these stories will provide you with a little bit of light, pleasurable reading during your travels to places afar that I probably no longer yearn to go to. All the stories presented in this book are based partially on my actual life experiences, hence, the title HalfaEUR"Truths . . . I have tried to word the title of each story in a way that will not give you a hint of how that story will end. Have fun, and guess your heart out!
Previously published as Practical Emotional Structure 2. Do your characters suffer from boring emotional arcs? Have your readers said your characters feel forced or inconsistent, or wondered why your hero and heroine love each other? Do you really understand the transformational character arc, conflict, or where motivation comes from? And have you ever wanted to know the actual mechanics of how to manipulate story emotions so you can produce consistent results? Included in this book: Why readers love or reject books. Why backstory is important. How to use a simple doodle to figure out what your characters will do, all the secondary influences on their actions, what needs to happen in the story, and how much word count you'll need to accomplish your goal. How to scale conflict up or down to hit your targeted word count (or in other words, how to create conflict for one book or a multi-book arc). How to fix character arcs quickly and easily. How to get across your character's emotions. How to understand why your character is doing something, and how you can fix it so they do something else, organically. How the placement of an inciting incident changes the story (or one story, three different ways). Lots of pictures. Written in an easy, conversational style, Backstory, Motivation and Conflict makes it easy to understand the theory you need to write emotionally resonant books, each and every time.
