This Old House meets Wayne’s World in this zany guide to designing and building tiny homes Derek Diedricksen has always had a love for small, modest houses ever since his father gave him the book Tiny Tiny Houses by Lester Walker for his tenth birthday. Combining his artistic abilities, wild imagination, and his passion for small houses, he self-published Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts, and Whatever the Heck Else we could Squeeze in Here in 2009. This book is a collection of Diedricksen’s creative/imaginative sketches for building small houses, shacks, cottages, and forts. The sketches are accompanied with hand-written commentary, both instructive and comical. Derek’s main purpose is to get your creative juices flowing and encourage you to get off the couch and use your hands. Believing that specific building plans squash creativity, he avoids too many detailed instructions, giving you the chance to put your own creative spin on your very own small abode (even if it is just in your imagination).

Chapter 7 The New Global Chinatowns: From Ramshackle to Luxurious Key
Author: Shaun Rein

With Chinese-led initiatives such as One Belt One Road (OBOR) and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) combined with uncertainty due to US shifts in policy and apparent commitments over the past decade, the stakes are high for companies looking to profit from the world’s newest superpower. Post-financial crisis, China has emerged as the largest or second largest trading partner for most countries. It has become the second largest market for Fortune 500 companies like Starbucks, Apple, and Nike and drives growth for Hollywood and commodity products. Yet the profits come at a price for countries and companies alike—they must adhere to the political goals of Beijing or else face economic punishment or outright banishment. Using primary research from interviews with hundreds of business executives and government officials, The War for China’s Wallet will help companies understand how to profit from China’s outbound economic plans as well as a shifting consumer base that is increasingly nationalistic. The countries and companies that get it right will benefit from China’s wallet but those that do not will lose out on the world’s largest growth engine for the next two decades.

"Sixty thousand Allied prisoners-of-war were forced to slave for the glory of the Empire of the Rising Sun, without the barest necessities, without rights, forging a railway link between Burma and Thailand, while World War II continued around them. In one of the world's hottest and wettest zones, more than twenty thousand Australians, English, Americans and Dutch died during the years' attempt by the Japanese Army to extend their empire to India. The story of unendurable hardships and sufferings of the p.o.w.'s is told with dramatic appeal, but with an intimacy which can only come from an eye-witness report. Without bitterness, for there are many moments of mirth, 'Kura!' outlines the story of Erik, the interpreter, and follows his way in hell-ships, slave camps and along the "railway of death". Victim of vivisection, once nearly bayoneted to death and on another occasion within a hairsbreadth of being decapitated, the interpreter refused to die ... or give up trying to improve his lot and that of thousands for whom he became the mouthpiece. Thus Colonel Anderson says in his introductiont to the book: "'Kura!' tells of the frustrations and the dangers of "putting over" in acceptable form our requests for more food and medical suplies, of resistance to the ever-increasing demands for more work from the captured slaves. It tells of the difficulties of standing up under the cruelty and abuse of the brutal guards; of pleading for the lives of prisoners who had committed misdemeanours. It tells of the struggle for survival."."
