Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Charles Darwin relied heavily upon them to help formulate and support his theory of evolution. Yet today the pigeon is reviled as a rat with wings. How did we come to misunderstand one of humanity's most steadfast companions?In Pigeons, Andrew D.

Avian Navigation: Pigeon Homing as a Paradigm

Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Avian Navigation: Pigeon Homing as a Paradigm by Hans G. Wallraff,Hans Georg Wallraff Book Summary:

How migratory birds can navigate home from their wintering grounds to their breeding sites over hundreds and thousands of kilometres has been an admired mystery over more than a century. Profound advances towards a solution of this problem have been achieved with a model bird, the homing pigeon. This monograph summarizes our current knowledge about pigeon homing, about the birds' application of a sun compass and a magnetic compass, of a visual topographical map within a familiar area and -- most surprisingly -- of an olfactory map using atmospheric chemosignals as indicators of position in distant unfamiliar areas.

News Agencies from Pigeon to Internet

Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

News Agencies from Pigeon to Internet by K. M. Shrivastava Book Summary:

Deals with a very important business in global communication of news -- the news agencies. The first news agencies started their business when the fastest technology was a combination of telegraph and carrier pigeon. They have survived several technological developments since then and have used these technologies for further diversification of services and revenues. The Internet, some thought, will make the news agencies extinct like dinosaurs. But, well run news agencies found a new opportunity in this threat. Though there have been some corporate biographies of news agencies, there has not been any comprehensive analytical work in the past 25 years on this business. This book is an attempt to fill this void in the global literature on journalism, media studies, international communication and business management studies. Besides, the students of these academic disciplines, diplomats, policymakers, and all types of communication professionals will find this book useful. It will also be a good read for lay persons who unconsciously consume the products of news agencies through all types of media -- from newspapers to mobile phones.

Pigeon Forge

Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Pigeon Forge by Veta Wilson King Book Summary:

Pigeon Forge is a booming resort town in Tennessee with the majestic Great Smoky Mountains towering in the background. The national park's birth in 1934 forever changed this once-fertile farming river valley. Pigeon Forge is a vacationing playground with every type of family amusement imaginable, the most noted being Dolly Parton's own Dollywood theme park. The town began with a few large-acre farms and a cluster of farm-related businesses. Its unusual name derived from an iron forge built by Isaac Love in 1819 and the Little Pigeon River that provided power for its operation. The Cherokees, native to the area, named the river because of the countless passenger pigeons lining its banks. Love's son, William, built a gristmill in 1830 that still stands today. The Old Mill is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Pigeon Trouble

Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Pigeon Trouble by Hoon Song Book Summary:

Pigeon Trouble chronicles a foreign-born, birdphobic anthropologist's venture into the occult craft of pigeon shooting in the depths of Pennsylvania's anthracite coal country. Though initially drawn by a widely publicized antipigeon shoot protest by animal rights activists, the author quickly finds himself traversing into a territory much stranger than clashing worldviews—an uncanny world saturated with pigeon matters, both figuratively and literally. What transpires is a sustained meditation on self-reflexivity as the author teeters at the limit of his investigation—his own fear of birds. The result is an intimate portrayal of the miners' world of conspiracy theory, anti-Semitism, and whiteness, all inscribed one way or another by pigeon matters, and seen through the anguished eyes of a birdphobe. This bestiary experiment through a phobic gaze concludes with a critique on the visual trope in anthropology's self-reflexive turn. An ethnographer with a taste for philosophy, Song writes in a distinctive descriptive and analytical style, obsessed with his locale and its inhabitants, constantly monitoring his own reactions and his impact on others, but always teasing out larger implications to his subject.

Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman Book Summary:

Newly arrived from Ghana with his mother and older sister, eleven-year-old Harrison Opoku lives on the ninth floor of a block of flats on a London housing estate. The second best runner in the whole of Year 7, Harri races through his new life in his personalised trainers - the Adidas stripes drawn on with marker pen - blissfully unaware of the very real threat all around him. With equal fascination for the local gang - the Dell Farm Crew - and the pigeon who visits his balcony, Harri absorbs the many strange elements of his new life in England: watching, listening, and learning the tricks of inner-city survival. But when a boy is knifed to death on the high street and a police appeal for witnesses draws only silence, Harri decides to start a murder investigation of his own. In doing so, he unwittingly endangers the fragile web his mother has spun around her family to try and keep them safe. A story of innocence and experience, hope and harsh reality, Pigeon English is a spellbinding portrayal of a boy balancing on the edge of manhood and of the forces around him that try to shape the way he falls.

The Global Pigeon

Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Global Pigeon by Colin Jerolmack Book Summary:

The pigeon is the quintessential city bird. Domesticated thousands of years ago as a messenger and a source of food, its presence on our sidewalks is so common that people consider the bird a nuisance—if they notice it at all. Yet pigeons are also kept for pleasure, sport, and profit by people all over the world, from the “pigeon wars” waged by breeding enthusiasts in the skies over Brooklyn to the Million Dollar Pigeon Race held every year in South Africa. Drawing on more than three years of fieldwork across three continents, Colin Jerolmack traces our complex and often contradictory relationship with these versatile animals in public spaces such as Venice’s Piazza San Marco and London’s Trafalgar Square and in working-class and immigrant communities of pigeon breeders in New York and Berlin. By exploring what he calls “the social experience of animals,” Jerolmack shows how our interactions with pigeons offer surprising insights into city life, community, culture, and politics. Theoretically understated and accessible to interested readers of all stripes, The Global Pigeon is one of the best and most original ethnographies to be published in decades.

Purchase one of 1st World Library's Classic Books and help support our free internet library of downloadable eBooks. Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - Early in the September of the year 1651 the afternoon sun was shining pleasantly into the dining-hall of Forest Lea House. The sunshine came through a large bay-window, glazed in diamonds, and with long branches of a vine trailing across it, but in parts the glass had been broken and had never been mended. The walls were wainscoted with dark oak, as well as the floor, which shone bright with rubbing, and stag's antlers projected from them, on which hung a sword in its sheath, one or two odd gauntlets, an old-fashioned helmet, a gun, some bows and arrows, and two of the broad shady hats then in use, one with a drooping black feather, the other plainer and a good deal the worse for wear, both of a small size, as if belonging to a young boy.

Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Pigeon Post by Dumitru Țepeneag,Jane Kuntz Book Summary:

Here is a book about a man, supposedly a writer, who tries to write a novel, because he promised his readers he would. But he doesnt have anything to say. He keeps erasing what he writes, and rewriting it, without having the slightest idea where hes going with it. Soon enough he realizes that looking out of the window, sitting in front of his typewriter, describing anything and everything, is not enough to write a novel. His three friends, Edmond, Edgar, and Edouard, will aid him in his task . . . Pigeon Post will be the second book Dalkey Archive has published by the Romanian writer Dumitru Tsepeneag (after the critically acclaimed Vain Art of the Fugue), and the press will be publishing more of his works in the years to come. "[Vain Art of the Fugue] is a work of singular invention and joy, a successful experiment in every aspect of the novel, especially delight." -The Believer "With his metaphors and traps, Dumitru Tsepeneag reminds me of a magician who pulls flowers, animals, and strange objects out of his hat. He lays comical stories over a poignant, and often grim, background." -Journal de Geneve "[Tsepeneag] induces the sense that memory, time, and consciousness are both mutable and, ultimately, unknowable." -Elizabeth Hand, Village Voice "Reading Romanian writer Dumitru Tsepeneags Vain Art of the Fugue is like having a dream, and then remembering it in that diaphanous, vague, next-morning way a dream is recollected. This is a good thing." -The Quarterly Conversation

No Stool Pigeon

Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

No Stool Pigeon by Haycene Ryan Book Summary:

Here in one place as suggested by my friend Helena who worked at the Cultural Office after she had read the five pieces, for the benefit of persons beyond the confines of the geographical space occupied by the island, and for those who would otherwise not have been exposed to the thoughts expressed, or would have had to carry out the laborious search through the Montserrat Reporters archives in order to revisit any of the pieces but for the last which has not previously appeared in print, are the socio, economic, and political analyses as documented under various pseudonyms by Haycene Ryan over the period 1991-2008. Where pen names were used, it was done, not out of fear, but on the premise that, as so often occurs in small societies, some persons would not bother to read a piece because of their negative perception of the authors capabilities or motive while, others accept the ideas without question due to their association with the individual with neither group employing any measure of critical thinking whatsoever. The articles were all written with the future of Montserrat and its inhabitants in mind and not to promote any individual or political party ideology.

Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Some Days You’re the Pigeon. Some Days You’re the Statue. Part 2: More Droppings by Dr. Roger C. Andersen Book Summary:

“Twenty years ago, The Humor Project published Roger’s first book, Some Days You’re The Pigeon. Some Days You’re the Statue. By sharing his own true stories, Roger invites us in turn to be able to laugh at ourselves—and to learn something about ourselves as “humor beings” along the way. He has a wonderful gift in helping us see the humor in the little things in life. My hope is that this book will also inspire you to look for the humor in your own (sometimes serious) reality. Roger’s stories suggest that we can move from a grim and bear it mentality to a grin and share it orientation.” —Dr. Joel Goodman; director of The Humor Project, Inc. Are you someone who... • Has ever been hit by a pigeon (literally or figuratively)? • Feels like the statue today? • Takes your job seriously but would like to take yourself lightly? • Likes to laugh? • Ever says, “Someday, we’ll laugh about this!” If you answered, “Yes,” to any of the above, then this book is for you! More Droppings is the much anticipated sequel to the 1994 jest-selling Some Days You’re The Pigeon. Some Days You’re the Statue.

Pigeon on a Hill

Pigeon [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Pigeon on a Hill by Jonathan Stepp Book Summary:

There is no doubt, it is first and foremost the story of Jonathan's journey battling cancer. But perhaps even more, it is a book of lessons. Lessons in ... Hope, and the power it has to change minds and hearts. Friendship, and what is means to care for others. Joy, and the obstacles it can overcome. Trust, because, after all, the doctors need lots of it. Faith, and the miracles God can work. I feel privileged to have played even a small role in the story. The view I was afforded makes me certain that those characteristics are not only true of the book, but that all involved with Jonathan from 2008 to 2009 felt part of them too. Praise God
