Riffem wasn´t a great wizard, at least not by the standards of the game. He couldn´t cast big fireballs or powerful lighting bolts to devastate his enemies. He wasn´t getting very far in his wizarding career and doubted he ever would. Then a chance encounter with a dragon at the local inn changed everything. Now Riffem is on a quest to find seven beautiful women for his new dragon lord, Thraxrax. Even with the help of Yth, an intensely cerebral mind melter, and the wanton dragonkin warrior Klaezarsta, he finds himself way out of his depth. Lacking sheer power, he´ll have to rely on his wits and luck to succeed. If he does, a life of luxury awaits him. If he fails, his new lord will turn him into a deep fried wizard kabob. An exotically beautiful centaur woman, a gregarious goo girl, a nefarious succubus, and a highly temperamental female fire elemental that just wants a hug wait within this story.

Mainstream health science has let you down. Weight loss is not the key to health, diet and exercise are not effective weight-loss strategies, and fatness is not a death sentence. You´ve heard it before: There´s a global health crisis, and unless we make some changes, we´re in trouble. That much is true - but the epidemic is not obesity. The real crisis lies in the toxic stigma placed on certain bodies and the impact of living with inequality - not the numbers on a scale. In a mad dash to shrink our bodies, many of us get so caught up in searching for the perfect diet, exercise program, or surgical technique that we lose sight of our original goal: improved health and well-being. Popular methods for weight loss don´t get us there and lead many people to feel like failures when they can´t match unattainable body standards. It´s time for a cease-fire in the war against obesity. Dr. Linda Bacon and Dr. Lucy Aphramor´s Body Respect debunks common myths about weight, including the misconceptions that BMI can accurately measure health, that fatness necessarily leads to disease, and that dieting will improve health. They also help make sense of how poverty and oppression - such as racism, homophobia, and classism - affect life opportunity, self-worth, and even influence metabolism. Body insecurity is rampant, and it doesn´t have to be. It´s time to overcome our culture´s shame and distress about weight, to get real about inequalities and health, and to show every body respect. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Celeste Oliva.
