All You Need is Love + Coffee

Newly self-diagnosed Coffeeholic Claire moves to Cairns to escape a failed long term relationship and to open the coffee shop of her dreams. But things are not as glamorous as she imagines. The coffee plantation is a dusty farm, the cafe is a tin shed behind a Hills Hoist, and the tall, quiet man who meets her at the station is called Bruce. Despite this and her own addiction, can she create the best coffee shop in Tropical North Queensland? Can she also find love at the same time? Something in it for everyone; the coffee drinker, the tea drinker, the decaf small macchiato drinker. Even the hot water drinker. Sam, Barista, local cafe I laughed so much coffee came out my nose.

Maximizing Human Capital in Asia

Organizations do not fully appreciate the link between people and business. They are too driven by short-term financial pressures, resulting in the failure to acknowledge the relationship between leadership, people management processes and business growth. Last but not least, employees’ true needs are also not satisfied. What is the solution? As "growth" is the objective of all parties, HR must build an employee value proposition that would achieve this. This value proposition has to premise itself on satisfying employees’ needs that will result in highly engaged employees, who in turn will deliver high-quality products and services, bringing about happy customers. This interactive proce...

I'm Just Her Father

The world seen from two set of eyes is enthralling, especially when those eyes belong to two people who share the same genes but different lives. For example, Mel Martin's view of Alaska in the 1960s and 1970s is certainly different from Elizabeth Martin's Alaska of this century. Besides, a father and daughter can look at the same thing and see two different universes. The book stretches from the past to the future, from Alaska to Russia, and from everyday to unique experiences. It includes poetry, short stories, opinion pieces, and even limericks. The goal is to amuse, not educate. Yet, you likely will mine some nuggets from the Martins' combined 85 years of writing experience. Many of the pieces use humor laced with sarcasm. Father and daughter occasionally berate each other, but it is all in fun and includes a lot of love. Readers of all ages will find something in this unique book that appeals to them.

Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race

The Yukon Quest is more than just a sled dog race. It was the dream of two Fairbanksans--a recreational musher and an amateur historian--who conceived of a race closer to the roots of Alaskan dog sledding. The Yukon Quest is a 1,000-mile slog through trails used only for this race that cross mountains, rivers, and lakes in some of the harshest weather on the planet. It celebrates the history of the dogs that carried freight and delivered mail, dogs that many times over saved lives before the advent of aviation and snowmachines made them obsolete. The inaugural Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race of 1984 was a great success with the wholehearted support of the Fairbanks community, and it has become a much-anticipated annual event ever since.
