Learning to overcome overwhelm, balance our busy lives, believe in our own abilities and understand how to be amazing, just as you are. This book is not about changing who you are it's about changing t...he way you think about who you are. Freeing yourself from the pursuit of a superwoman ideal that's unrealistic and is making so many of us unhappy. This sense of not measuring up, the need to be more and do more keeps us constantly striving for something that'll always be out of reach - it exists only in the movies. It's what I refer to as the superwoman complex

              Teine Samoa means Samoan girl. It's a label that carries with it an unspoken duty to obey, serve and respect your family and Samoan culture. But who can be teine Samoa? When should you be teine Samoa? And how can you be teine Samoa outside of Samoa? Lani is an afakasi, and is ...unsure of her Samoan heritage and what being Samoan even means. But one thing she knows for sure is that she's afraid of Vai and the 'Real Samoans'. Masina, the free-spirited daughter of a Church Minister, is bound by parental expectations and struggling to fulfill the destiny set by her parents. Teuila is the good Islander girl and proud teine Samoa who realises she doesn't want to be a 'switcher' anymore. How will these junior high school students learn to be, understand and fulfill their obligations as Teine Samoa, living in New Zealand? Teine Samoa is a journey of cultural identity and discovery for four junior high school students, their families, their teachers and, most importantly, anyone who has ever faced the challenges of being a teine Samoa.

              Saving Our Skins: Atmospheric Reflections from a Lauder Stargazer (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By McKenzie, Richard Lloyd

              An insider's account of the most successful international environmental action ever undertaken: the Montreal Protocol on Protection of the Ozone Layer. Richard McKenzie's career in ozone research began years before the discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole and continues to the pr...esent day. McKenzie brings a first-hand experience to the story through his research and involvement in scientific and environmental assessments of ozone depletion. Saving our Skins is the story of how McKenzie and his colleagues at New Zealand's National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research in Lauder - a research laboratory housed on a sheep and cattle station at the bottom of the country - helped ensure the success of the Montreal Protocol. McKenzie's story plays out against a backdrop of an ever-increasing threat from climate change and its interactions with the ozone story. This book - authoritative on the science, but accessible to the layman - intertwines the scientific story behind the Protocol with the author's personal experiences in a career that spans four decades, stretching from the hallowed corridors of Oxford University to an isolated rural community where the locals refer to the scientists as "stargazers". The book's title plays on the dual problem of ozone depletion - which leads to dramatic increases in ultra-violet radiation that causes skin cancer - and climate change, which poses an existential threat to humanity. Both serve to remind us of the fragility of our thin skin of atmosphere. Ultimately, McKenzie shows that with foresight and global cooperation, difficult problems in science can be solved. As world leaders grasp for solutions to the climate change threat, this book suggests they might find a model in the Montreal Protocol.

              Sixteen-year-old Bianca Taylor just wants to be a normal teenager but normal has never come naturally to her. Not only is she known as the Albino of Pentacle High, but Bianca is also an auric-empath; able to see and feel the colourful auras of those around her. To make mat...ters worse Bianca has started sleepwalking; waking to find herself naked in the forest, with visions of demonic beasts fresh in her mind. At first, she sees her nighttime wanderings as harmless. But when a local rancher goes missing, after a run of gruesome cattle killings, Bianca starts to fear for her safety. A handsome stranger appears in town, telepathically warning Bianca that she is in danger. But does he also hold the answers to who, and what, she really is?

              Life is truly a gift for us to enjoy. We are growing older, but in modern times, the concept of 'old' has changed. Our chronological age is just a number - not an impediment. It's time to change the narrative and celebrate its positive side and dispel the myths and anxieties abou...t ageing. The short stories of the 19 remarkable men and women featured in this book show that they are flourishing in the second half of life. These individuals are living fabulous, fulfilling lives on their own terms, and so can we. Their experiences and attitudes to life have shaped who they are. They have made up their minds about how they want to spend their time and who they want to spend it with. They pursue their passions, seek new opportunities, make big decisions, try new experiences, are adventurous, invest in meaningful relationships, enjoy a good laugh, are connected to family and the community, and plan and look forward to the future. The inspiration for this book came from chatting with many animated individuals who have reached mid-life and beyond and for whom chronological age is no barrier to making conscious lifestyle choices. It's a privilege to share these stories with you.
