Summary

Introverted children are often misunderstood, even by their parents, who worry about them. Engaged by their interior world, they’re often regarded as aloof. Easily overwhelmed by too much stimulation, they can be seen as unmotivated. Content with just one or two close friends, they may be perceived as unpopular. Parents fret that they are unhappy and maladjusted. But the truth is quite different: Introverted children are creative problem solvers. Introverted children love to learn. Introverted children have a high EQ (emotional IQ) and are in touch with their feelings. They take time to stop and smell the roses, and they enjoy their own company. They are dependable, persistent, flexible, and lack vanity.  How can parents help their introverted children discover and cultivate these wonderful gifts? Help is here. Written by Dr. Marti Olsen Laney, author of The Introvert Advantage with 74,000 copies in print, The Hidden Gifts of the Introverted Child fully explains introversion as a hardwired temperament, not a disability, and tells just what parents need to do to help their child become the person he or she is meant to be—and succeed in an extroverted world. Beginning with a 30-question quiz that places a child on the introvert/extrovert continuum, The Hidden Gifts shows parents how to foster a climate that allows introverted kids to discover their inner strengths; schedule ways for a very young innie to recharge those batteries and teach an older child to do it for him- or herself; create a harmonious household with siblings, and parents, of different temperaments; help innies find success at school, sports, parties, and other group activities.

    Ngā Kete Mātauranga - Māori...

    In this beautiful and transformative book, 24 Māori academics share their personal journeys, revealing what being Māori has meant for them in their work. Their perspectives provide insight for all New Zealanders into how mātauranga is positively influencing the Western-dominated disciplines of knowledge in the research sector. It is a shameful fact, says co-editor Jacinta Ruru in her introduction to Nga Kete Mātauranga, that in 2020, only about 5 percent of academic staff at universities in Aotearoa New Zealand are Māori. Tertiary institutions have for the most part been hostile places for Indigenous students and staff, and this book is an important call for action. ‘It is well past time that our country seriously commits to decolonising the tertiary workforce, curriculum and research agenda,’ writes Professor Ruru.

    This book contains of 2 single titles, combined into one: Book 1 on Egyptian mythology: This book contains all the gods and goddesses from ancient Egypt that you can imagine. The list is long, and the names go on for a while. Needless to say, this book is complete. You won’t miss out on any of the deities they worshipped. Also, some more background information is given about deities such as Thoth, Horus, and Isis. At the end of the book, another subtopic will be addressed, namely: The use of medication and doctors in ancient Egyptian culture. If any of these things interest you, then I encourage you to not wait any longer and pick up this book. It will be a great source of information, story-telling, and drama from a lost civilization. Book 2 on Egyptian mythology: Fixate your focus on the great stories from the past, the legends from the desert lands that have been forgotten but still passed on. This mythology guide will take you back to ancient Egypt, a mysterious country with technology, knowledge, science, and superstitious beliefs about life, death, and the underworld. The book will show you what kinds of symbols they used back then. It will go over some cultural anecdotes and references that may surprise you, such as their temple worship and shabti dolls. Aside from that, the text takes you to a fantasy world of drama and tales about royalty, doom, wealth and poverty, and the very creation of the world they believed in in that region.

    Ever since the end of the Black Death in 1350 the human population has been growing continuously at an alarming rate and there is no sign of it stopping anytime soon. 
     
    The biggest increase has been in most recent times. From the 1950's onward and due largely to medical advancement and the increase in agricultural productivity, the rate of increase has been significant. This in itself should tell us something. That this is a modern problem created recently and we have no precedent, no history to work upon. We don't know exactly what is going to happen. We don't know if a super virus will come along again as it did in 1918 and kill millions of people. We don't know if we will eat ourselves into mass extinction. We don't know if the destruction of natural species such as bees will seal our fate. We don't know if an asteroid will wipe us out or even artificial intelligence. We do know that overpopulation, no matter which way you look at it, is not good. We do know that we are running out of fossil fuels, food supplies, methods of producing more and more power and space. 
     
    What does the future hold for a planet that is swarming in two-legged locusts hell bent on devouring every possible resource the Earth has to offer?
