The breathtakingly beautiful art created deep inside the caves of western Europe in the late Ice Age provokes awe and wonder in equal measure. What do these animals and symbols, depicted on the walls of such caves as Lascaux, Chauvet and Altamira, tell us about the nature of the atavistic mind? How did these images spring, sophisticated and fully formed, seemingly from nowhere into the human story? "The Mind in the Cave" puts forward the most plausible explanation yet proposed for the origins of image-making and art. David Lewis-Williams skilfully interweaves a lifetime of anthropological research with the most recent neurological insights to offer a convincing account of how we became human and, in the process, began to make art. This is a masterful piece of detective work, casting light on the darkest mysteries of our ancestors and on the nature of our own consciousness and experience.

Years ago cruises were viewed as the ultimate luxury vacation, only enjoyed by the fabulously wealthy, or by cruise groups of senior citizens who had been saving for a cruise all of their lives. These days, quite the opposite is true. The cost of a seven day cruise vacation is comparable to a seven day vacation on to many other land destinations, especially when you consider all of the extras and inclusions that you get on an all-inclusive cruise vacation. Below are a few examples of how cruise vacations differ from the normal vacation getaway.Cost of Cruise Vacations vs. Ordinary VacationsWhen dealing with the cost of a vacation, a cruise vacation compares very favorably with most land-based vacations. When you book a cruise vacation, your fee's will include your lodging, all of your meals, as well as many daily activities that would cost extra if you took a typical land-based vacation. On land vacations you usually initially just pay for travel and hotel, having to add on daily meals and extra activities. Once you start factoring in the cost of gasoline for travel, restaurant meals and admission fees to parks and other excursions, you almost always come out
ahead by booking a cruise instead.The Food is Fabulous! When you go on a non-cruise vacation, you are usually on your own as far as food is concerned. Since you will be eating at various restaurants, you are at the mercy of a different chef every time, and you can never be sure of the quality of the service or the food. On cruise ships, however, the food is considered one of the best aspects of the entire trip. You will have plenty of choices for your meals from traditional dining room fare to pizza and burgers at a dockside caf�. You can literally graze your way through the entire day, starting with poolside breakfast buffets and ending with a midnight snack in a cozy bistro or in your room. You will never go hungry on a cruise, for anytime you need food it will be there for you.And Then There is the Service...Your cruise staff is dedicated to ensuring that you are treated like royalty the entire time you are under their care. Eating in the ship's dining room is comparable to dining at a world-class restaurant. The service is cheerful, impeccable, and very friendly. If you are unhappy at all with your meal, they will happily return it to the kitchen and bring you anything else you desire. If you have special dietary considerations, the kitchen will know about them beforehand and will have made arrangements to honor them. You are not a customer on the ship, instead you are considered an honored guest. The glorious pampering continues outside the dining room as well. You will find chocolates on your pillow at night, and your coffee made just the way you like it when you sit down to the table at breakfast. After one night your dedicated wait staff will know you and your family, including your likes and dislikes. If you want anything at all, all you need to do is locate a cruise attendant and chances are they will arrange for it to be delivered to you as soon as possible.Cruises Make Vacationing EasyRemember those long car rides with your children in the back seat poking each other and growing crankier the longer you were in the car? You will never have to worry about that on a cruise vacation. No maps, no counting the miles to the next bathroom stop, no looking around for a decent restaurant or the next McDonald's on the side of the road. When you are on a cruise, all the planning is done for you. All you have to do is sit back and relax, and decide which of the dozens of activities they have to offer you want to enjoy.Cruise ships offer an incredible variety of activities to participate in. The newest ships are floating resort cities. You can drift from activity to activity depending on your mood and vacation style. Even better, cruise vacations offer something for everyone. If you have ever tried to put together a vacation that will please your sports-loving husband, your adventurous son, your shopaholic daughter, and your own delight in experiencing the best foods of the world, you will really appreciate a cruise vacation. Your kids can enjoy a morning at a deck side water park complete with water slides and wave pools while you relax at the shipboard spa with a top-of-the-line massage. You can golf, gamble, hike, and climb rock walls all before you even add in the on-shore excursions.Whether you choose a leisurely cruise to smaller islands, or an adventurous cruise that takes you on a tour of the Alaskan coast, a cruise vacation simply ca not be beat for cost, convenience or pure fun. When you book a cruise vacation, you are booking an exciting getaway where the world does not interfere with all of its troubles and inconveniences.If you have never considered a cruise before, this is the year to check it out. With the economic turmoil, most cruise lines are going all out to offer tempting deals to attract vacationers of all kinds. Shop around online and take a look at all the options and advantages that a cruise vacation offers. - Read a book or download

The Mind in the Cave pdf kaufen? - Congratulations! You are pregnant! At this most amazing time of your life, it has never been more important to watch what you eat and to be certain that you are only ingesting the healthiest of nutrients for you and your growing baby. Your body is going to change and grow more rapidly and significantly than ever before, and you will need to stay in optimal physical condition to meet the challenging changes you will soon face. Likewise, your little fetus will soon be a baby outside in the real world, and it is up to you to give them all of the best nutrition to help them grow and thrive properly.Most practitioners will tell you to drop all of the supplements you may currently be taking once you find out you are pregnant. In fact, even the supplement bottles themselves seem to tell you this. Most of them indicate on the label that you should consult your doctor before taking if you are pregnant or nursing. However, there are some nutrients that are so important that many doctors suggest taking them in addition to a healthy regimen of diet and exercise.Generally, you can meet all of your supplement needs in the form of one prenatal vitamin, but let us break down the makeup of that and talk about some of the most critical nutrients involved. This way, you can be sure to not only take your daily prenatal vitamin but to also eat plenty of foods that supply these nutrients naturally in non-supplement form.Folic acid is considered the most critical nutrient during pregnancy. It is so important that, many health practitioners recommend it to women who are simply trying to conceive a baby and have not yet become pregnant. By building up their stores of folic acid, they can ensure that the levels are high when pregnancy occurs. It is a good idea for all women of child-bearing age to take in at least 400 mcg daily. For women who are trying to conceive or have begun their first trimester of pregnancy, it is sometimes recommended that they take ten times this amount!Folic acid can drastically reduce the chance of your baby being born with birth defects. Specifically, the chances of having neural tube defects are lessened with extra consumption of folic acid. Neural tube defects are those that affect the brain and the spinal cord, the most well-known example being spina bifida. These tragic defects can cause mental retardation, paralysis, blindness, or other serious conditions for the newborn. Adding a folic acid supplement to your diet can not only add to your peace of mind, but can drastically reduce chances of these life-altering conditions occurring. Be sure also to eat plenty of fortified cereals and grains, since the FDA now ensures that
folic acid is added to these to meet 100% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA). Also good are greens such as broccoli, asparagus and spinach, as well as oranges for your fruit. Beef liver is especially high in folic acid, so choose lean cuts when you eat your beef to increase your folic acid while attempting to keep your fat intake in check. Another crucial supplement for a pregnant woman is iron, which can also be found aplenty in beef. For those who are not beef eaters, again, you can meet your needs well when eating cereals and other grains since the FDA has fortified many if not all of the often-consumed and popular rice, flour, bread and cereal products. If you are a vegetarian, however, you will not be eating beef (or chicken or seafood, which are other popular sources of iron) and an iron supplement becomes all the more important for you in particular when pregnant.While you can get iron from dark leafy green vegetables, most people do not eat enough of these. It is recommended that a woman get 27 mg per day, which is significant jump from the needs of a non-pregnant woman, who requires only 18 mg per day. Without enough iron, a woman can become anemic and this can cause malnutrition in a developing fetus, as well as even greater fatigue and rapid breathing when exerting oneself as a pregnant woman.Last, but by no means least, if you are pregnant you want to ensure that you are getting sufficient calcium in your diet. Calcium is a very abundant mineral, and it is not likely that you will suffer from extreme calcium deficiency. Further, the most well-known source of calcium is milk and other dairy products, and these are usually consumed aplenty by most people. In any event, to be on the safe side it is smart to supplement your calcium intake while pregnant. Your bone density and that of your developing baby's is at stake!If you follow a healthy pattern of eating, supplementation and exercise, you should also have a healthy pregnancy. Be sure to consult your obstetrician before starting any sort of supplement program while pregnant, even as it regards folic acid, iron and calcium. -Download quickly, without registration
