BOOK DESCRIPTION:

This Second Edition of The Discus Book has been written and produced with updates and additional information since the first edition, written in 1989, to accommodate "some" of the questionable technology changes, regarding this species since the first edition of the Discus Book, when the Author successfully bred Wild Discus (symphysodon) in captivity, the recording of such work and events transcribed to the said printed book.

Alastair Agutter still remains one of a select few in the world today to accomplish such a feat, breeding wild symphysodon, and as a result of such endeavours by he, and other dedicated Aquarist colleagues, they managed to break a cycle and taboo that had lasted for more than 120 years, since the founding of the pastime we know as tropical fish keeping, after "The Great Exhibition" of 1851 and this being, to breed "The King of the Aquarium" in captivity.

This second edition of the book is concise and accurate, based on proven methods and techniques, to deliver the above results. The Discus, King of the Aquarium is a highly evolved species of the Cichlidae (tooth carp) Family and will challenge any Aquarist, even tank bred species. This book will not produce any quick fixes, or silver bullets to keeping symphysodon, whom are a very highly evolved sensitive species. But will provide the secrets to successfully keeping the species, if the valuable information found in this book is followed to the letter.

Natural Law teaches us to "evolve and refine" when studying quantum mechanics and natural branching, in other words stealth, efficiency and risk aversion. Such outcomes and results only ever come from following the covenant of Natural Law when one seeks "simplistic perfection" in all that we do!

Super Foods Tropical Fish and Discus Book

All experienced Aquarists and Commercial Breeders will tell you that 99% of all Tropical Fish deaths are related to stress and poor diet. My book Super Foods for Tropical Fish and Discus is therefore very long overdue for all Aquarists around the world.


Make your own Tropical Fish and Discus Cichlids Super Foods from these fabulous recipes, and see your healthy, happy thriving fish growing by the day!


For me writing this book has been an incredible journey, where I have learnt so much about food for my tropical fish and what's best for them.


The book came about, and the actual writing of it, was in truth down to world famous Naked Master Chef “Jamie Oliver” who was the inspiration for me, where he clearly shows after selling more than 20 million of his very many fabulous books written on Great Foods, that there is a real desire and passion for experiencing food that is a real pleasure and joy to eat, and I might also add, very healthy and good for us all, we humans that is!


Then when continuing to decide on writing the book, I also thought of the line from the fabulous film “We Bought a Zoo” where the beautiful Scarlet Johannsson asked Matt Damon “why did he buy the zoo” and to which he replied “why not” and that's how this book come into being, I thought to myself “why not” write a book on tropical fish super foods and as they say, the rest is history.


I really know you will get a really big kick out of this book as a Tropical Fish Hobbyist or Discus Lover. As it is no exaggeration when I say, once your fish begin to eat these “Super Foods” on a regular basis, you will literally see your fish growing by the day!


In the book, you will find a great number of fabulous super food recipes to try for your tropical fish and discus. I know by using any of these recipes, you will eventually have healthy, happy, thriving tropical fish, and growing to a size you could have only imagined.


The Super Foods recipes found in this book, only use fresh meats and vegetables. Perhaps the book is very timely, as we become more aware today of micro beads and other grave pollutant elements finding their way into the water table system and food chain that can harm our pets, wild life and ourselves.


So by making these super foods, at least you know for your peace of mind, what ingredients are used, and another enormous benefit to you, being the massive savings on tropical fish food. Over the months your fish will grow and grow, until eventually, your tropical fish will come into breeding condition and want to spawn, if the water and other aquarium conditions are optimal and right.


So please enjoy this book and the plethora of delights you can now feed to your Tropical Fish and Discus!

The Theory of Particle Matter Frequencies and Multiple Universes Book

I wrote this paper some years back now, and I know many would think I am stark raving mad. But I am pleased to see that the Science community in the last year, or so, is now coming around to my theory, and the recent programme by Professor Brian Cox, provides greater evidence and logic surrounding the related subject area, sometimes referred to as zero point, inflation and convergence.


The Theory of Particle Matter and Multiple Universes, is a work for recording the author's findings regarding the big questions humanity have always been asking. A book for the big thinkers in our society and great young minds looking beyond the canvas and closet thinking.


The Theory of Particle Matter Frequencies and Multiple Universes asks, is there more beyond the canvas that we all see!


I hope many in the Science community and great young minds acquire this book covering my work. Quantum leaps for humanity have always come from looking at something with a different approach. My findings have arrived not as a mathematician, but from studying the life cycles of Natural Law and how Quantum Mechanics functions continuosly seeking workarounds and refinement. By understanding these conditions and encapsulating all dimensions regarding volume, space and conditions. Can you then quantify and apply these rules and laws throughout the cosmos and all that we know.


Is time, space, motion, natural law, quantum mechanics and natural branching all related to an expanding analytical data membrane we describe as the big soup or grand scheme.


Do we really understand the multiple facets of energy forms that exist?


Albert Einstein once conceded by saying “God has a sense of humour” regarding the other!


Quotation: “If the spirit of your imagination is limited, your journey of discovery will be very short.” ~ Alastair R Agutter


Stephen Hawking has concluded that the "Big Bang" derived from just "Energy" but there has to be another. For without it, an event, or execution, cannot take place!

Climate Change and Conservation for me started over 50 years ago. In fact, in the introduction of my first published book in 1989, I warned of Climate Change and Deforestation. So as a Marine Biologist and Ichthyologist, starting my apprenticeship at the waters edge at just 7 years of age, this book has something to say. 

I hope you grab a copy of the book to gauge what is really going on, and how our lives are being affected now. Many of the views and reports today being aired surrounding climate change by the United Nations, Governments, and Institutions, can very often seem distant issues and have no bearing, or relevance, to folks real lives. 

To most folk 40 to 50 years ago "climate change" was probably not on anyone's radar. However, even back in the 1960's and 1970's there did exist signs of change then, and not for the better. Please read on..... 

As each year has past on, even as a small boy to a young man, you would notice change and decline to our environment, less fish, less worms and an ever increasing film of dead algae and oil spillage caught in the saltwater pools and also covering silt banks and sand bars with a distinct smell. The warning and pre-cursor to our impact on Earth and especially surrounding fossil fuels, came with the sinking of SS Torrey Canyon off the Cornish Coast in 1967, spilling over 120,000 tons of crude oil that even reached the Thames Estuary, leaving massive devastation to the environment around Britain. 

So my book here "The Reality of Climate Change" provides an accurate account of how everyday Folks lives are now being affected, at the coal face as they say! 

In the book, I wrote and warned of serious neurological diseases from air pollution including Alzheimer's that I was convinced like other degenerative diseases of cell damage has been caused from air pollution toxins, preventing the renewal of brain cell tissues and other critical nerve system cell structures. 

I felt compelled to write this book, as I really care about our home (Mother Earth) and all the world's majestic life creatures we share it with. No longer can the few of us do all the heavy lifting, we need your help to challenge our negligent politicians and Corporate Empires. 

Now since writing the book, I am pleased to see more folk in the media are now starting to feature "Climate Change" and especially welcome Sky Broadcasting launching "Ocean Sea Rescue" exposing the plight to our dying Seas, Rivers and Oceans. 

"On the 12th of October 2015 BBC's Newsnight Team Broadcast a News Feature on Air Pollution which confirms my findings in this 'NEW' Book on Climate Change regarding serious Health issues including Respiratory Disorders, Dementia, Alzheimer's etc." 

"On Monday the 22nd of November 2015 there was a Special Sky News Report, where HRH Prince Charles accurately stated the planet faces catastrophe and needs to be put on life support now to prevent ever increasing disasters as a result of Climate Change." 

At the time of writing this book, there are two specific numbers you need to remember and these are 275 and 400! 

What relevance are the above numbers you may rightly ask? 

FACT: 275 Is the parts per million number of Carbon Dioxide for starting all of life on Earth and in layman terms, many millions of years ago. 

FACT: 400 Is the parts per million number of Carbon Dioxide today in the Earth's atmosphere and these factual measurements are courtesy of friends and colleagues at NASA (nasa.gov). 

Ever wondered why there is a rise in Respiratory Disorders, Alzheimer's, Dementia the list goes on....over 50,000 folk in Britain will die this year and rising from air pollution. Governments target the smokers as a diversionary tactic, yet diesel vehicles, including public transport is just, if not more lethal to your health! 

Enjoy the book, for I know you will find it to be an eye opener!
Social Media the Sum of Everything Equals Zero Book

Having been involved with the World Wide Web since it's commercial beginning, back in the mid 1990's as a Computer Scientist and Developer. I like to think I can offer some clear water, regarding such a phenomena we know as Social Media, and where even in a Virtual World, the real physical presence of Sir Isaac Newton's Natural Law is evident, and using both Quantum Mechanics and Natural Branching, even in an Artificial Intelligence environment, as written about in my book titled Creating the New Internet Super Highway.


So this new realm is not for the complacent. As further evidence of this power today has been with the Weaponization of Social Media.


Many businesses and users today, still do not understand fully the real power of social media and its data gathering ability and how such information can serve as an asset to some, but to the detriment of others. Many businesses advertise with little concern or consideration of their brand and image, as to where and what is being promoted across web pages on social media, that could include child abuse and extremism, and from such association damaging a brand long term, or to the point of no recovery.


CONTENTS INSIDE THIS BOOK:

Introduction, Social Media Roots, The Phenomena, Branding and Image Marketing Making Money, Legal Aspects, Human Health, Cyber Bullying, Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, YouTube, Linked-in, Weaponization of Social Media, The others, Conclusions and Useful Links.

We all want to be good Parents in our life time. But the journey is one of endurance, joy and heartache. In our society today there are many books and questionable experts on caring for Children and bringing them up. The recent programmes on television, in many cases amount to child abuse and gross ignorance written by the utterly mindless, but perhaps this again reflects on our society today!


I never knew the answer then, as a young man just before leaving the forces. But I had an opportunity to ask a spiritualist what my best job would be? Filled with ambition, I was open to suggestions be it a scientist, lawyer, doctor etc. But the answer I got was as a "Father" and looking back some thirty plus years on, I knew the answer to be right.


It may seem strange for a man to write on such a subject, sadly still in today's society few really appreciate the thoughts of man and especially when it comes to the love and well-being of their Children.


Having been blessed with 5 children and today, beginning to read and hear about my expressed views in this book, now being covered by the media and press. I know the content of this book is invaluable when it comes to common sense, love and care. 


Beyond the superficial material nonsense of our society today, if we all paused and looked around at all other life forms, we would finally appreciate our life's purpose is to love and create life. Such views are not romantic whims, but a scientific fact in relation to Natural Law and Quantum Mechanics.


The biggest and most important job in our lives is being a parent. It is rewarding and after time, such an experience begins to put all other things and events into perspective.


I leave you with this Quote;


"As Parents the best we can ever do is to always love our Children. For regardless of our views they will always go their own way." ~ Alastair R Agutter


I hope this book can be a unique and valuable reference, resource and companion for you and found within the following key chapters.

Parenting never ends, it only begins!

Children's Weebies Family Early Reading English Language Book 1 starts to teach Pre-School and Junior Children how to read. Created in full colour with illustrations to help Children in their early learning and making education lots of fun. A book suitable for ages between 3 to 8 years. The book also encourages Children to draw developing hand coordination skills.


The Weebies Family Collection of books have been specially created and designed for early learning Pre-School for Children. So as to provide today that very critical early start in life through communication.


Each book has been designed in full colour and where the illustrations created by the author are developed using fractal maths and here is why!


A Child's view point in early development can relate to shapes and colours at Pre-School age. Each drawing is therefore created in fractal maths only using circles, triangles and squares. As this is a creative stage that can be comprehended at an early age and this is why Children's drawings are very exact to them where pictures they create appear to be rectangular, circular etc.


The drawings are deliberately designed, so Children can connect and become inspired by the colours and shapes, where they can become confident to draw themselves, therefore developing hand co-ordination skills.


These books are very educational and all have a pertinent meaning and so they are not just books coupled together. They are deliberately written and designed to quickly hot wire Children at an early age, to learn about the World around them. For example, being taught different types of fish, animals, foods and so much more.


The Weebies books also teach early Child development with a sense of right and wrong, developing at an early age a moral compass to care for others. Learning to look after our wild life and preserve our planet. To love and care for each other, so as to develop strong communication ties and bonds.


Children are remarkable Human Beings and have the ability from birth to learn with great enthusiasm. The small word why, so often asked is a question in pursuit for knowledge by your Child in this new found world. The 21st century with all the challenges ahead for the Human Race, needs the spirit and hope of knowledge to be found in every Child.


The Children of today, are the custodians of Earth tomorrow. Each book is educational, for a Child beginning this journey!

Learning the Technical Game of Football - Has been written to inspire young footballers to reach their long term aim and ambitions, in becoming accomplished players from non-league through to professional, by learning the technical game of Football.


I hope that the past World Cup held in Brazil and forth coming one to be held in Russia will serve as an inspiration to the countless millions of young Boys, Girls, and Adult Players, wanting to improve their Technical Game of Football.


It was back in 1970 I saw my first World Cup proper in Mexico, and where I was blessed with seeing a timeless piece of sporting history, as I watched the Great Pele mesmerize his opponents and saw the Greatest Goalkeeper of all time, Gordon Banks.


Having taught Football and played the game myself, and really understanding the technical aspects of football from years of study and watching. And also being fortunate and blessed, to be taught by the very best myself, my first Coach being Tony Bentley of Stoke City a Gordon Banks playing partner and team mate. Also Peter Taylor, former England Manager, who also endorsed my work and endeavours, especially setting up Junior Football for the Community.


I truly hope this book will greatly help every Footballer improve their technical skills from non-league junior football, through to professional and international level, and from just a few hours reading, makes an enormous contribution in making far better players, domestically and internationally.

Creating The New Internet Super Highway Book

As a member of the public, business owner, developer, or programmer, you may well ask what the hell has Natural Branching and Quantum Mechanics got to do with the Web and a Virtual World. The reality is, even in a virtual world such elements are busy at work, so take a journey into the future, here and now!


The Internet and World Wide Web was created and invented from a physical world of computing. Yet today using technology society operates in a Virtual World of Computer Science, and born from that has come the manifestation of a newly created Internet Super Highway and World Wide Web.


This claim is not from a line, or script of a Sci-Fi Movie, but the arrival of a new era, one that exists right now, and is evolving by the day, and unbeknown to most, even to Folk in the world of Business and Development. The arrival of this new era of greater advancement is a quantum leap in computer science, and well beyond one dimensional thinking. In 2006, I wrote a paper on the World Wide web titled "The Chaos Theory of Packet Data" and now today there are over 94 million web sites and counting.


It was only a matter of time by understanding the realms of Natural Law could be found even within a Virtual World Quantum Mechanics and Natural Branching busy at work reaching beyond convention for a faster method of packet data delivery by flat packing the World Wide Web by stealth.


I have heard many say even in my life time, how amazing it would be, to be able to look into the future. Well this book takes you there, here and now regarding the World Wide Web and the Computer Sciences. So are you ready to look into the future now!


Quotation: “Even a virtual world created by technology, continues to be re-shaped by the power of Natural Law in the form of Quantum Mechanics and Natural Branching.” ~ Alastair R Agutter.


This book covers my notes and work, when I had a eureka moment in early 2013, and realized it was possible to create a new 'Internet Super Highway' (virtual world wide web) and one that could be a free collaboration program with any number of entities.


The creating of a new higher level of the World Wide Web is a major breakthrough, as demand becomes forever greater, surrounding more users and packet data. Every web site owner, developer, student and enthusiast can embrace and adopt this new virtual world of development, for a faster and more enjoyable connectivity experience. Creating a compression inflation environment for users and new customers by adopting and understanding how photon particles can be altered to different paths and journeys, even split and using far longer distances, but defining logic with faster delivery within the realms of fractal maths.


From careful research, I was also able to establish the average bounce rate of a business web site was over 40% and over 94% of all web sites are not optimized for a virtual world, their users, or browser rendering engine technology software.


So by flat packing things as folk would say, and by running optimization tools and tests, I found I could change the speed of any average web site, where it would perform at least 5 to 10 times faster by my newly discovered methods in such an environment, that I regard today in comparison to all other web sites being downloaded, as super fast speed by stealth!!!

Getting Inside Google's Head Book

In my professional business life as a Computer Scientist, I was fortunate to be at the beginning of the World Wide Web's commercial story and journey. I fondly recall Google launching via their University Servers. So this book is from an old hand teaching structure and the fundamental elements required to be successful.


It is every web site owners dream to have millions of visitors and customers!


So how do you achieve this goal and know from the very outset you are on the right track and getting the correct advice!

Many dream of great success online and often wish if only they could share in the Google phenomena of the countless $$$$$ billions made. So I ask you, have you ever really thought of how you can share in that Google Magic!


This book has been written for every web site owner. It is not some in-depth 'Geeks Guide' to the World of Technology and coding.


The book has been written covering the key elements of how you structure your web site and web pages, so your creation is optimized to function fast and efficiently on Search Engines (google, bing, ask, yahoo) and user browser (chrome, fire fox, explorer, opera, safari) rendering engines.


By following the fundamental key golden rules in this book, you will find your web site traffic and customer sales growing, as your web site will soon become a friend to both Search and Browser rendering engines.


Quotation: "Natural Law and Quantum Mechanics teaches us about the Universal Laws of creation and at the very heart of this miracle for all life is "refinement of design and efficiency"'. So I often ask myself, why is it that the human race often tries to over complicate, when the ultimate goal is always to seek simplistic perfection." ~ Alastair R Agutter 


Based on detailed research, helping to improve performance of over 94% of all web sites world-wide. By following some key golden rules and simple jargon free steps in this book, webmasters will see far higher search engine ranking results on Google, Yahoo and Bing etc. Your web site will render 3 to 4 times faster for your new visitors. You will see a significant and noticeable increase of web users and customers to your web site, by as much as 45 to 60%, if not higher.


Finally, remember Google's success began and continues today from the creation of a simple (natural law) search engine design!
