The viral storm: the dawn of a new pandemic age

By Wolfe, Nathan

Publishing Date: 2011

Classification: 600

Call Number: 616.91 WOL

The author, a Stanford biologist reveals the surprising origins of the world's most deadly viruses, and how we can overcome catastrophic pandemics. He discussses the complex interactions between humans and viruses, and the threat from viruses that jump from species to species. He tells the story of how viruses and human beings have evolved side by side through history; how deadly viruses like HIV, swine flu, and bird flu almost wiped us out in the past; and why modern life has made our species vulnerable to the threat of a global pandemic. His research missions to the jungles of Africa and the rain forests of Borneo have earned him the nickname "the Indiana Jones of virus hunters," and in this book he takes readers along on his groundbreaking and often dangerous research trips to reveal the surprising origins of the most deadly diseases and to explain the role that viruses have played in human evolution. In a world where each new outbreak seems worse than the one before, he points the way forward, as new technologies are brought to bear in the most remote areas of the world to neutralize these viruses and even harness their power for the good of humanity. His provocative vision of the future will change the way we think about viruses, and perhaps remove a potential threat to humanity's survival. -- Provided by publisher.

ˇHola tequila: ninety creative cocktails and inspired shooters

By Graham, Colleen

Publishing Date: c2012

Classification: 600

Call Number: 641.25 GRA

Tequila: most people love it or hate it. There's more to tequila than just the margarita, though, and this book offers an excellent way for readers to expand their acquaintance with the blue-agave-based liquor. To be sure, Graham does provide a number of variations on the ever-popular margarita, as well as a roundup of possible origins for that drink. She also describes the various types or classes of tequila, lists what's necessary to set up a bar fully stocked for preparing tequila-based cocktails, offers handy tips on making and mixing cocktails, and includes a nice variety of recipes, from a Tequini (a variation on a martini) to a Cilantro-Cucumber Smash. The book concludes with a brief, fascinating overview of the distillation process. VERDICT Informative and educational on the topic of tequila production, with notes on relevant cultural and historical information, this will also be of great practical use to the person who'd really prefer to focus on sampling the spirit—it includes plenty of drink recipes, too. Olé!—Courtney Greene, Indiana Univ. Libs., Bloomington
