Authors at Google: Gene Baur | "Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food"
Many people picture cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens as friendly creatures who live happily within the confines of a peaceful family farm, arriving as food for humans only at the end of their sun-drenched lives. That's what Gene Baur had been told -- but when he first visited a stockyard he realized that this rosy depiction couldn't be more inaccurate.

Motion Forces Part 1
Motion Forces Part 1
Over my time in education, I have seen play in educational settings lose its status, more especially as children progress into reception classes and into key stage one.

As play is once again becoming ‘fashionable’, (evidenced by its recurring status in the medi
