Bestselling author Dan Buettner reveals how to transform your health using smart nutrition, lifestyle, and fitness habits gleaned from longevity research on the diets, eating habits, and lifestyle practices of the communities he's identified as "Blue Zones"—those places with the world's longest-lived, and thus healthiest, people, including locations such as Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula; Ikaria, Greece; and Loma Linda, California. With the audacious belief that the lifestyles of the world's Blue Zones could be adapted and replicated in towns across North America, Buettner launched the largest preventive health care project in the United States, The Blue Zones City Makeovers, which has impacted the health of millions of Americans since 2009. In The Blue Zones Solution, readers can be inspired by the specific stories of the people, foods, and routines of our healthy elders; understand the role community, family, and naturally healthy habits can play in improving our diet and health; and learn the exact foods—including the 50 superfoods of longevity and dozens of recipes adapted for Western tastes and markets—that offer delicious ways to eat your way to optimum health. Throughout the book are lifestyle recommendations, checklists, and stories to help you create your own personal Blue Zones solution. Readers will learn and apply the 80/20 rule, the plant slant diet, social aspects of eating that lead to weight loss and great health naturally, cultivating your "tribe" of friends and family, and your greater purpose as part of your daily routine. Filled with moving personal stories, delicious recipes, checklists, and useful tips that will transform any home into a miniature blue zone, The Blue Zones Solution is the ultimate blueprint for a healthy, happy life.

From decreasing the odds of receiving a parking ticket to dealing with a ticket once issued, this handbook outlines the most common violations and situations motorists will encounter when driving and parking throughout the greater New York City metro area. Operating on the premise that the best parking defense is knowledge, this guide begins with an in-depth analysis of the basic parking regulations—including those identified by posted signs such as No Parking, No Stopping, No Standing, and street cleaning as well as those monitored via parking meters—for the general public as well as commercial vehicles. Readers will also learn how to read a parking ticket, to identify the specific violation(s) cited, and scan the document to determine if there are any grounds for automatic dismissal. A handy chart of code violations and corresponding fines, tips on the appeal process, and a quick-reference guide to tow pounds further enhance the learning experience.

My name is Stone, Mason Stone; I am a blue zone bounty hunter. If you are a High Value Individual (or as we say, HVI) you can run and you may even try to hide, but I will acquire you dead or alive the choice is yours! Do you remember when the world was made up of continents? Well, on the 20th day of the 10th month 2030 (10/20/30) the world went to war when Iran launched a nuclear strike on Israel. On the 31st October 2030, eleven days into the conflict, the world just managed to step back from likely Armageddon. By the 8th December that year, the world map had changed forever; continents no longer existed and the world was divided into four zones: blue, red, yellow and white. When the war ended, extradition treaties that had been in place for many years simply ceased to exist. On the 15th January 2031, the blue zone countries created a judicial body, officially called The Justice Section. We call it Jay-Sec. A new justice for a new world.
