From humble origins as a Sri Lankan raised on a small rubber estate in war-ravaged Malaysia, Maha Sinnathamby migrated to Australia some 40 years ago and has faced countless obstacles and many failures. Yet through fierce determination, unrelenting drive, sheer hard work, and extraordinary vision, he has an enduring legacy of community-building achievements to his name and was listed within BRW’s 50 Most Wealthy Australians in 2011. In 1992 Maha’s private, under-capitalised firm purchased 2,860 hectares of inhospitable, inaccessible land in an economically depressed region of Queensland, Australia. Two decades later, despite innumerable setbacks, Springfield has emerged as Australia’s largest privately-owned, master-planned city; and is a striking example of what’s possible when you design a city exclusively around the needs of the community. Stop Not Till the Goal is Reached explores the 10 principles for fearless success that have guided Maha throughout his life. It explains the principles through Maha’s personal journey and provides other examples of astonishing achievements from around the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lucy Price-Lewis.

A year after the disappearance and commencement of the international search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, no sign of the plane has been found - no debris, no bodies, no sign of the much-talked-about black box. Richard Belzer, George Noory, and David Wayne want to know why. Scrutinizing the theories the media and politicians claim are the ´´most likely´´ reasons the plane crashed, Belzer, Noory, and Wayne argue that if a year after a huge Boeing 777 has gone missing, and there´s still no sign of it whatsoever, it´s time to think outside the box. The public needs to stop being misled. If a plane and its passengers went ´´missing´´ once, what´s to stop it from happening again? Some of the theories the authors consider seem implausible on the surface, but the thorough research they´ve done and the continual failure of politicians, aviation authorities, and military members around the world to give any indication they´re wrong makes their arguments as good - if not better - than the more widely shared ones. The title of this thought-provoking volume, Someone Is Hiding Something, is a line spoken by former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad - perhaps the only government official to publicly acknowledge the true reason that neither Flight 370 nor the 239 people onboard have been found. 1.

I thought things would change when I found the others. We would stop running. We would fight the Mogadorians. And we would win. But I was wrong. Even though we have come together, we barely escaped from the Mogadorians with our lives. And now we´re in hiding, trying to figure out our next move. ´´The six of us are powerful - but we´re not yet strong enough to take on their entire army. We haven´t discovered the full extent of our Legacies. We haven´t learned to work together. And there´s still so much that we don´t know about the Elders or their plan for us. Time is running out, and there´s only one thing we know for certain: We need to find Number Five before they do. ´´They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. I am Number Four. I was supposed to be next. But I´m still alive. ´´This battle is far from over.´´ 1. Language: English.

When an imminent, mass-scale terrorist attack is uncovered, former DELTA Force officer Major Paul Jensen and the Joint Special Operations Command know that they are all that stand between the deadly attacks and innocent Americans. But what he doesn´t know is the mission´s cost, the terrorist´s deception, and why he is haunted by love lost. Across the dark waters of the Strait of Malacca between Indonesia and Malaysia, a massive plot is birthed by an evil alliance to attack the Western United States with biological and chemical weapons, by using Abu Sayyaf, ruthless Southeast Asian guerillas, to smuggle the deadly agents into the United States. Only the sharp eye and quick reaction of a Reaper drone pilot, in the CIA´s Special Operations Group, flying surveillance missions catches the suspicious Malacca rendezvous. The Agency intel develops into an imminent, priority-level-five threat to national security. When Major Paul Jensen, former DELTA officer and liaison with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to Joint Special Operations Command, takes command of Operation Southern Fury, he and the JSOC Quick Reaction Force are all that stand between the deadly terrorist plot, and not only hundreds of thousands of lives, but the fragile national economy and the continuation of the American way of life. But can Jensen stop the threat before it reaches the United States, and at what cost? Does he understand the whole picture, or will he fall prey to the ultimate deception? 1. Language: English.
