This book provides two basic concepts on plant propagation and value-added transplant production in a closed structure with artificial lighting: 1) photoautotrophic (sugar-free medium, photosynthetic or inorganic nutrition) micropropagation systems, and 2) closed transplant production systems with minimum resource consumption and environmental pollution. This book also describes the methodology, technology and practical techniques employed in both systems, which have been commercialized recently in some Asian countries such as China and Japan. We often use a closed structure such as a tissue culture vessel, a culture room, a growth chamber, a plant factory with lamps, and a greenhouse to propagate plants and produce transplants. Main reasons why we use such a closed structure is: 1) higher controllability of the environment for desired plant growth, 2) easier protection of plants from damage by harsh physical environment, pathogens, insects, animals, etc, 3) easier reduction in resource consumption for environmental control and protection, and 4) higher quality and productivity of plants at a lower cost, compared with the plant propagation and transplant production under rain, wind and sunlight shelters and in the open fields. Thus, there should be some knowledge, discipline, methodology, technology and problems to be solved on plant propagation and transplant production common to those closed structures, regardless of the types and sizes of the closed structure.
Why is it so hard to say NO to a chocolate bar, sodas, or the candy when we all know that they're ultimately unhealthy? Well, simple; they are all high in sugars and sugar is addictive! We have a pretty extensive appetite (craving) for sweet treats, simply because they are often high in sugars. In the recent past, there has been a great increase in the amount of sugar that the average person consumes. There is too much sugar in our coffee, bagels, donuts and even whole meal breads that are expected to be a healthy alternative. This high consumption of sugar daily leads to the average person consuming about Â½ -1 pound sugar daily.Can you imagine this holding a pound of sugar? No wonder we are plagued with many diseases from diabetes and high blood pressure to heart disease and obesity. The situation is not going to get better until we do something about this situation.

Dean Silverthorne's mother may be dead, but she still has matchmaking to do.
When an injury dashes NFL Quarterback Dean Silverthorne's Super Bowl dreams, he heads back to Deer Lick, Montana with a chip on his wounded shoulder, more determined than ever to get back in the game. He loves his kooky family, but this trip home is going to be a very brief Christmas visit.
His game plan doesn't include an instant attraction to Emma Hart, a feisty kindergarten teacher who seems to be the only person in Deer Lick not interested in the hometown hero. Or his dearly departed mom popping up with mistletoe in hand and meddling on the mind. Now Dean can't help but wonder if there's more to love than life between the goal posts.
