Angels of Sex in Queensland Book 10 of the series The Lodging for the Rose - Large-Format Edition (Magazine Style) The novel is fantasy focused on science. It presents a daring attempt to do what has not been done for a century, and to some degree never. It explores the challenge to take the Principle of Universal Love to the grassroots of our social world, and not exclude sex, but to uplift it above depravity, above morality, even above its tallest image in Christianity, onto the lateral platform where we all stand side by side as human beings "clothed with the sun." The exploration is wide-ranging, though it all unfolds on a small island where leading-edge researchers come together from many parts of the world. The novel "Angels of Sex in Queensland" is a part of the series "The Lodging for the Rose" - Book 10 (Episode 6B) - Published by Cygni Communications Ltd.

The Northern Sea Route (NSR) through Russia's ice-infested Arctic waters can potentially halve sailing distances between Europe and Northeast Asia. It also passes by some of the world's largest oil and gas reserves. As we enter the 21st century, technological, political and even climatic developments are again making the NSR an interesting possibility. Is international, commercial shipping on NSR feasible - economically, technologically and environmentally? This has been the topic of six years of research within the International Northern Sea Route Programme (INSROP), enlisting the expertise of 450 researchers from 14 countries. Acknowledging the complexity of the problem, the research programme used a uniquely multi-disciplinary approach, with 104 sub-projects mapping and investigating relevant ship technology, the costs and benefits versus other transport routes, potential impacts on the environment and local indigenous peoples, the cargo potential, political and administrative obstacles, the availability of insurance, aspects of security, jurisdiction and environmental law, as well as other aspects. The results and conclusions of the 104 studies have been integrated and is presented in this book - the first book ever to address the Northern Sea Route in such a comprehensive manner.It is truly a reference work, which should be on the desk of all commercial and political decision-makers concerned with the commercial potential and future development of Northern Sea Route shipping - as well as other stakeholders and interested experts.
Snakes of Western Queensland - A Field Guide is an easy-to-use reference book for travellers, naturalists and locals alike.
