Jason Westbrook is the leader of an armed, private security team searching the Australian Outback for a stolen flash drive that holds vital information for the future of his family's company. But he is distracted from his search by the thoughts of the stunning woman he saw bathing in the river just before they entered the village.
Dr. Johanna Smith is an environmental researcher on a missionary project, working with a village in the Australian Outback. When armed men enter the village looking for stolen information-blaming two men from the research group-they take the group captive, but Johanna manages to remain hidden. As she searches for a way to liberate her team, she finds herself drawn to a handsome stranger whom she meets nightly at the river-unaware he is the same man holding her colleagues hostage. As their feelings for each other grow, only time will tell whether the secrets they keep from each other will tear their love apart, or whether their all-consuming passion will bring them back into each other's arms.
In this romantic thriller, a research scientist and a man on a mission to recover stolen data find themselves falling in love under unlikely circumstances in the Australian Outback.
Strong and Smart - Towards a Pedagogy for Emancipation tells the story of how Dr Chris Sarra overcame low expectations for his future to become an educator who has sought to change the tide of low expectations for other Indigenous students. The book draws upon Roy Bhaskar's theory of Critical Realism to demonstrate how Indigenous people have agency and can take control of their own emancipation. Sarra shows that it is important for Indigenous students to have confidence in their own strength and ability to be as "able" as any other group within society.
The book also compares and contrasts White perceptions of what it is to be Indigenous and Indigenous views of what it is to be an Aboriginal Australian. The book calls for Indigenous Australians to radically transform and not simply reproduce the identity that Mainstream White Australia has sought to foster for them. Here the book explores in what ways Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are "othered" by White Australians. Sarra seeks to advance the novel position that it is OK to be other to White Australia. The question becomes, "which other?" The Indigenous Student should not be treated as the Feared and/or Despised Other, nor should they be coerced into wholly assimilating into White culture.
The 2014 BBC Apprentice winner Mark Wright (an Australian) had this to say about London: "London particularly is a land of opportunity for young people to start businesses. You can start a business here from your kitchen bench and turn over a million quid - what other place in the world can you do that?" A survey of more than 200,000 people from 189 countries carried out by management consultancy firm The Boston Consulting Group (with the UK's totaljobs.com and The Network, a global alliance of more than 50 recruitment websites) found London to be the most desirable place to work in the world. One in six people said they wanted to work in London, while Britain as a whole came out as the world's second favourite place to work, just behind the US. London welcomes talented people from around the world with open arms. There are many great opportunities available in the UK (Britain) for the skilled foreigner. Don't be left behind.
