Ageing is one of humanity’s greatest triumphs, yet the perception of ‘getting older’ remains one of great negativity. There is a choice for all of us, believes Australia’s international advocate on ageing, Marcus Riley. We can either accept that old age means to fade away, deteriorate and wither on the vine, or we can seize the opportunity to revel in our later years with joy, passion and wisdom. Drawing on his 20 years’ experience in the ageing industry, and sharing real stories of people flourishing at all stages of later life, Riley reveals that by embracing positivity, planning how you want to live the rest of your life and understanding the need for purpose, we can all age successfully. Or, as he likes to call it, we can boom! An inspiring, achievable and essential guide for people of all ages, Booming is much more than a book – it’s a life-changing philosophy that will help you fulfil your potential to live well, at a time when it matters most.

For ten months of the year, the prairie-chicken’s drab colors allow it to disappear into the landscape. However, in April and May this grouse is one of the most outrageously flamboyant birds in North America. Competing with each other for the attention of females, males gather before dawn in an explosion of sights and sounds—“booming from the mists of nowhere,” as Aldo Leopold wrote decades ago. There’s nothing else like it, and it is perilously close to being lost. In this book, ecologist Greg Hoch shows that we can ensure that this iconic bird flourishes once again. Skillfully interweaving lyrical accounts from early settlers, hunters, and pioneer naturalists with recent scientific research on the grouse and its favored grasslands, Hoch reveals that the prairie-chicken played a key role in the American settlement of the Midwest. Many hungry pioneers regularly shot and ate the bird, as well as trapping hundreds of thousands, shipping them eastward by the trainload for coastal suppers. As a result of both hunting and habitat loss, the bird’s numbers plummeted to extinction across 90 percent of its original habitat. Iowa, whose tallgrass prairies formed the very center of the greater prairie-chicken’s range, no longer supports a native population of the bird most symbolic of prairie habitat. The steep decline in the prairie-chicken population is one of the great tragedies of twentieth-century wildlife management and agricultural practices. However, Hoch gives us reason for optimism. These birds can thrive in agriculturally productive grasslands. Careful grazing, reduced use of pesticides, well-placed wildlife corridors, planned burning, higher plant, animal, and insect diversity: these are the keys. If enough blocks of healthy grasslands are scattered over the midwestern landscape, there will be prairie-chickens—and many of their fellow creatures of the tall grasses. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and citizens can reverse the decline of grassland birds and insure that future generations will hear the booming of the prairie-chicken.

One moment your school-age son is engaged in a house sale, and everything is serene on a Sunday afternoon in the suburbs. The next morning, you awaken to a 6am phone call from a policeman, who tells you that a childless great-uncle has jumped from the roof, leaving your phone number for notification purposes. Shortly after that, you learn that your best friends are getting a divorce, and you don't know what to tell your children. Midlife brings chaos, laughter and tears. You find women in their 40's having 'last chance' babies, and many people changing careers while they still can. Couples, meanwhile, are fighting about whether to stay together, and many women who have been home are trying to jump-start their careers. Boyfriends, girlfriends, and 'last chance' affairs complicate matters even more. The author takes you with her on a search for order, trying to find patterns in the chaos, travelling the routes of the past, examining the lives of baby-boomer friends, while renewing an earlier commitment to journalism, which had lapsed during a ten-year stint in the business world.

Lean supplies, strong export activity, and vibrant demand both at home and abroad have pushed crop prices to record highs, offsetting today¿s spiraling production costs. As a result, farm profits and investments have soared, and farmland values have boomed. The author discusses current farmland value trends and analyzes the factors underlying the recent surge. He concludes that the recent surge in farmland values tracks expected gains in crop returns. At the same time, however, an unexpected surge in production costs or a drop in crop prices could undercut farmland values and pose a financial risk to the farm sector. Thus far, however, the industry¿s debt levels are up only modestly, helping to mitigate the risks of a drop in farm incomes. Charts and tables.

Two key long-term energy trends are shifting the strategic balance between the United States and China, the world's superpower rivals in the 21st century: first, a domestic boom in U.S. shale oil and gas is dramatically boosting America's energy security; second, the frenetic and successful search for hydrocarbons in Africa is making it an increasingly crucial element in China's energy diversification strategy. America's increasing energy security and China's increased dependence on energy imports from Africa and the Middle East until well past 2040 despite its own shale discoveries will make Beijing's own increasing energy insecurity be felt even more acutely, pushing the People's Liberation Army to accelerate adoption of a "two ocean" military strategy that includes an enduring presence in the Indian Ocean as well as the Pacific Ocean.
