The world’s oceans cover about 70% of our planet. To safeguard the delicate ecological and environmental functions of the oceans and their remarkable biodiversity, networks of marine protected areas are being created. In some of these areas, human activity is restricted to non-exploitative activities and in others it is managed in a sustainable way. Australia is at the forefront of marine conservation, with one of the largest systems of marine protected areas in the world. Big, Bold and Blue: Lessons from Australia’s Marine Protected Areas captures Australia’s experience, sharing important lessons from the Great Barrier Reef and many other extraordinary marine protected areas. It presents real-world examples, leading academic research, perspectives on government policy, and information from indigenous sea country management, non-governmental organisations, and commercial and recreational fishing sectors. The lessons learnt during the rapid expansion of Australia’s marine protected areas, both positive and negative, will aid and advise other nations in their own marine conservation efforts.

She never wanted any of this…. Doctor Gabriella Vega is looking for a way out. After being selected to work with the best researchers and doctors for a special government program she feels flattered to have been chosen. Until she sees what is really going on. As things begin to get worse in the labs, Gabriella strikes outs against her superior; Dr. Malca and rushes to set things right. The information she that possesses Malca will kill to retrieve. Malca suddenly becomes the least of her worried when she is kidnapped by a handsome stranger. Though he growls a lot and would rather toss her over his shoulder than listen to reason, Gabriella feels a connection with him that she cannot explain. He promises to protect her from harm, but can she trust him when she witnesses a darker side to him lurking beneath the surface? He never wanted a mate… Robert McKenzie is enjoying his vacation, nothing but himself, plenty of fishing, and sun. That was until his brother calls him up with a request. A resurfaced memory from Aria directs them to a lead that could lead them to Malca’s whereabouts. Being the best tracker in Darkwood Springs, he’s asked to hunt down a doctor on the run from Malca and bring her to the compound. Alive and unharmed, Easy and simple…or is it? He never thought for a second that the stubborn and temperamental Latina would be his mate. As Robert gets to know Gabriella he discovers that he no longer wants to be without his mate. But can he win her heart before she wins her freedom back? As Malca’s plans come to light, they race against the clock to stop the deadly doctor before it’s too late. Can Robert protect and win his mate before she walks out of his life forever and he loses the only woman meant for him and his bear? This book is not a standalone novel. To better understand and enjoy this book, I would suggest reading the previous book, “Bearing it All” first before continuing on.

“A visionary roadmap for people who believe they can change the world—and invaluable advice about bringing together the partners and technologies to help them do it.” —President Bill Clinton A radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools, Bold unfolds in three parts. Part One focuses on the exponential technologies that are disrupting today’s Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs to go from “I’ve got an idea” to “I run a billion-dollar company” far faster than ever before. The authors provide exceptional insight into the power of 3D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics, networks and sensors, and synthetic biology. Part Two draws on insights from billionaires such as Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos and reveals their entrepreneurial secrets. Finally, Bold closes with a look at the best practices that allow anyone to leverage today’s hyper-connected crowd like never before. Here, the authors teach how to design and use incentive competitions, launch million-dollar crowdfunding campaigns to tap into tens of billions of dollars of capital, and finally how to build communities—armies of exponentially enabled individuals willing and able to help today’s entrepreneurs make their boldest dreams come true.

Loaded with practical examples, this new volume highlights common application tasks, so that you can learn by doing. The book starts with the basics then quickly progresses to complex topics, like transforming XML with XSLT, querying XML with XPath, and working with XML dialects and validation. It also explores the more advanced issues: using Python with SOAP and distributed web services, and using Python to create scalable streams between distributed applications (like databases and web servers).The book provides effective practical applications, while referencing many of the tools involved in XML processing and Python, and highlights cross-platform issues along with tasks relevant to enterprise computing. You will find ample coverage of XML flow analysis and details on ways in which you can transport XML through your network.Whether you are using Python as an application language, or as an administrative or middleware scripting language, you are sure to benefit from this book.
