              Michelle Duff delves into Ardern's beginnings in small-town New Zealand, discovering a nose-ringed teen fighting for equality and her own identity in a devout Mormon family. Duff tracks Ardern's political career from being dismissed as a 'show pony' to her compassion during one o...f New Zealand's biggest tragedies, the Christchurch mosque terror attack of 2019. In its aftermath, Ardern has become a global icon for her strength and decisiveness while uniting a country in shock and mourning. Ardern attracted international headlines for being the second world leader to give birth while in office. But why was having a baby so meaningful, and what does it say about the continued struggle for gender equality? Has Ardern really been a transcendent leader, and what enduring mark might she leave on the political landscape? This is an engrossing and powerful exploration of one of the most intriguing political stories of our time-telling us as much about one young woman's ascendancy as it does about the country that elected her.

              I got up and walked the Te Araroa is a factual account of my end-to-end (through) hike of the Te Araroa trail which runs 3,063 kilometres from the top of New Zealand to the bottom. The official trail was opened in 2012 although it has been in the planning for many years. It is m...ainly on trails; however, it also passes through some villages and cities. I narrate what I am seeing and feeling and of the people I meet. It will describe to the reader the many high and low points and daily physical and mental challenges that a 119 day end-to-end hike will put the hiker through. Stories of being dropped off by boat into a high security area and how I got out; of being called into Kiwis' houses to stay the night or just to have a coffee; falling down the side of a mountain into a raging icy-cold river and thinking it was all about to end. It was the hike of a lifetime and probably the best way to see New Zealand and its wonderful people. I have now completed several long walks around the world however Te Araroa is still one of my favourites.

              Photo Printing provides easy to follow, expert advice on how to create long-lasting, great-looking prints. Thanks to the convenience of cameraphones and the many fun ways to share digital images, most photos now are viewed only on computers, TV screens or portable devices. Most o...f the images shared through social media are ephemeral; taken, posted and forgotten. And while our best photos can stand out on a back-lit screen, none of the digital display options has the lasting impact of a high-quality print. Photo Printing teaches you the basics of how to choose the right printer and paper, set up the printer driver, and how to balance colours and tones. The book guides you through colour management, soft proofing, and how to control the differences between how an image appears on a screen and when it's output to paper; all you need to make high-quality colour and monochrome prints.

              Could the most photographed and picture-taking generation the world has ever seen end up having little or no photographic record? Taking photos has never been easier, and most of us have a camera with us everywhere we go. Yearly exposures are measured in the trillions. Many - per...haps the majority - of those digital images aren't worth much more than a quick glance and the delete button. Others are 'keepers' - for as many reasons as there are picture-takers. And many of these will only become more valuable over time. This guide is for that vast majority of picture-takers who want to ensure that they can easily find and share those valuable photographic memories, but frankly don't know where to start. We have attempted to keep it simple, affordable and achievable. Most readers will be able to get started using existing software tools on their home computers. We emphasise that managing an image collection actually starts even before you press the shutter button. We embrace the printed image as a valid 'storage medium'. We've avoided being overly prescriptive, on the reasoning that every photo collection is different, there is no perfect system and anyway, the perfect is usually the enemy of the achievable. This is not a learned treatise on archiving, workflow enhancement strategies and digital asset management best practice, but a simple guide 'for the rest of us' on how to bring a little order to the chaos that is the average 21st Century photo collection. We hope it works for you!
