Good Intentions Collection #5 Mother Country by Etaf Rum

A young Palestinian American woman comes to terms with the lessons imparted by her mother in an evocative story about sacrifice, resilience, and reinvention by the New York Times bestselling author of A Woman Is No Man.
A daughter and mother: two women miles, years, and dreams apart. One defies traditions and expectations. The other conforms to them, even in a new land. Their emotional distance grows while the daughter, now a wife and mother herself, comes to better understand the woman she’s become and why, as she ruminates on inherited trauma, the need to forgive, and the lengths she’ll go to free herself from the past.
Etaf Rum’s Mother Country is part of Good Intentions, a riveting collection of stories about the instincts, fears, and fierce love inherent in motherhood from award-winning, bestselling authors. Read or listen to each in a single sitting. #EtafRum

#PDFDownload Nimona by N.D. Stevenson

The graphic novel debut from rising star Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic, which Slate awarded its Cartoonist Studio Prize, calling it "a deadpan epic."
Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel is perfect for the legions of fans of the web comic and is sure to win Noelle many new ones.
Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren't the heroes everyone thinks they are.
But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona's powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit. #NDStevenson

#PDFDownload The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture by Gabor Maté , Daniel Maté

By the acclaimed author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts, a groundbreaking investigation into the causes of illness, a bracing critique of how our society breeds disease, and a pathway to health and healing.
In this revolutionary book, renowned physician Gabor Maté eloquently dissects how in Western countries that pride themselves on their healthcare systems, chronic illness and general ill health are on the rise. Nearly 70 percent of Americans are on at least one prescription drug; more than half take two. In Canada, every fifth person has high blood pressure. In Europe, hypertension is diagnosed in more than 30 percent of the population. And everywhere, adolescent mental illness is on the rise. So what is really “normal” when it comes to health? #GaborMaté #DanielMaté

#PDFDownload Zodiac Academy #8 Sorrow and Starlight by Caroline Peckham , Susanne Valenti

All stars must fall.
Bloody, lost, broken. We live to fight another day. But with so much stolen from us, can the fates ever twist in our favour again?
My sister and I have been torn apart by shadows and despair, and now we each stand alone.
Our sorrow is spun like a web, trapping us tight, and I fear our enemies will soon come to feast upon our souls.
But if I have my way, the merciless sky will have dealt us its final fortune. It’s time for us to take back the power that’s been ripped from our grasp and turn the tide of this war.
All stars must fall, and all Phoenixes must rise.
Long live the Savage Queens.

The winds of fate are shifting, and it finally seems like they’ve been twisted in our favour.
On the run and cast out from society, we’ve been forced to hide from the mad man who stole our throne. But as more secrets come to light and my sister and I work harder than ever before to reach our potential and claim our birth right, the end is finally drawing closer.
There is no turning from this path now. The curse chases on our heels as time rushes by and the blood drenched destiny of the man I love looms ever closer just like the monster who stole our throne.
We must prepare for the final battle, but three things are clear now.
The cards have already been dealt.
Blood will spill for a new future to rise.
And the stars themselves can’t help us.

#PDFDownload Zodiac Academy #6 Fated Throne by Caroline Peckham , Susanne Valenti

Fate has torn us apart and sometimes I believe the stars have given up on us altogether.
Without my sister, the world seems darker than ever before and the shadows loom thicker, rising up to answer the call of the Shadow Princess and changing the face of Solaria for good.
Now Lionel Acrux has the strength to make a move for the throne, I’m not sure how much time we have left to stop him.
Our only hope is to find the Imperial Star before he does. We made the sacrifice the stars called for and we’re paying the price for that decision so it can’t be for nothing. But with the stars turning against us at every move, and the last light in the world seeming to fade, I’m afraid we’re almost out of time. Hope is a dangerous thing. It’s the key to us fighting on. But it could be what destroys us in the end.
One thing is for certain, I won’t stop until I have been reunited with my other half and together we will fight to take our crowns.
A war is coming.
The throne is calling for a new monarch. And someone must answer its call. #CarolinePeckham #SusanneValenti

#PDFDownload Zodiac Academy 8.5 Beyond The Veil by Caroline Peckham , Susanne Valenti

The stars called us.
The Veil closed at our backs.
And now death holds us in its clutches.
We were torn from life before our time, a Savage King, his queen, a betrayed son, a wronged brother, a scorned wife and so many more. We watch those we left behind as they struggle against the grip of the stars, the answers to so many of their questions within our grasp and yet out of their reach.
But what if we could find a way to answer their pleas? What if we could find a way to help them from this side of the divide? And what price would such a thing come at?
***This is a bridging book which takes place beyond The Veil (in the land of the dead) during the events of book 8 in the Zodiac Academy series. It should be read after book 8 to avoid spoilers for that book and holds the answer to what takes place for the characters who are held within the clutches of death by this point in the story, as well as vital clues to the conclusion of this epic series*** #CarolinePeckham #SusanneValenti

#PDFDownload Zodiac Academy #1 The Awakening by Caroline Peckham , Susanne Valenti

I’m a Gemini. Impulsive. Curious. Headstrong. A twin. Heir to a throne I know nothing about. And it turns out, I’m Fae. But of course there’s a catch - all I have to do to claim my birth right is prove that I’m the most powerful supernatural in the whole of Solaria. And sure, technically that’s true as I’m the daughter of the Savage King. But the bit they didn’t put in the brochure was that every single Fae in this Kingdom would claim my throne if they could. The school they’ve sent me to is both dangerous as sh*t and one helluva party. Vampires bite weaker students in the corridors, the Werewolf pack has orgies in the Wailing Wood at every full moon and don’t even get me started on the dark and twisted ways the Sirens use their powers on people’s emotions, or how my sinfully tempting Cardinal Magic teacher hosts detentions that leave people needing therapy. Classes are totally interesting if you manage to live through them. And that Gemini star sign I mentioned? It now determines my elemental magic and affects my destiny, so learning astrology is essential if I’m going to beat down my classmates – which is actively encouraged by the way. My biggest problem is the drool worthy Dragon shifter who has his eyes on my throne. He and his three psycho friends are determined to make my time here hell. All I’ve got to do is survive. #CarolinePeckham #SusanneValenti

Ethical Fashion Revolution: Can Sustainability and Style Coexist?

The fashion industry, long plagued by issues of sweatshop labor, environmental pollution, and ethical controversies, faces a reckoning. Consumers are increasingly aware of the detrimental impact of fast fashion and are demanding transparency and sustainability from brands. This rising tide of ethical consciousness is paving the way for a fashion revolution, where style intertwines with environmental responsibility and social justice.

At the forefront of this revolution are sustainable fashion brands that prioritize ethical production practices, eco-friendly materials, and fair labor conditions. These brands, often championed by smaller, independent designers, are challenging the status quo and demonstrating that beautiful and fashionable clothing can be produced without compromising on ethical values.

The shift towards ethical fashion is driven by a confluence of factors. Eco-conscious millennials and Gen Z consumers are leading the charge, demanding transparency and accountability from clothing manufacturers. Documentaries and exposés highlighting the dark underbelly of fast fashion have further fueled public awareness and outrage. This increased scrutiny has forced both established brands and consumers to re-evaluate their relationship with fashion, prioritizing quality over quantity and sustainability over fleeting trends.

The road towards a fully ethical fashion landscape remains long and challenging. Greenwashing tactics persist, and affordable, sustainable alternatives are not yet universally accessible. However, the progress made is undeniable. Sustainable materials like organic cotton and recycled polyester are gaining traction, innovative technologies are helping minimize water and energy consumption in production, and fair trade initiatives are empowering workers in developing countries.

Consumers play a crucial role in accelerating this positive transformation. #Fashion

Japan Quake Aftermath: Resilience and Rebuilding in Face of Tragedy

The recent earthquake in Japan, measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale, has left a trail of devastation in its wake. Coastal cities bore the brunt of the destruction, with towering waves crashing into homes and sweeping debris inland. While the full extent of the damage is still being assessed, the resilience and spirit of the Japanese people are already on display as they begin the long process of rebuilding and recovery.

The immediate aftermath of the earthquake saw an outpouring of support from within Japan and across the globe. Rescue teams work tirelessly to locate survivors trapped under rubble, while emergency services provide medical aid and basic necessities to those affected. The Japanese government has mobilized resources to expedite rescue efforts and coordinate relief activities.

Despite the immense challenges, Japan's history of experiencing and overcoming natural disasters has imbued its people with a profound sense of resilience. Communities come together, offering shelter, sharing food and water, and providing emotional support to one another. Volunteer groups emerge, dedicating their time and skills to clearing debris and rebuilding damaged infrastructure.

The journey towards recovery will be long and arduous. Infrastructure needs repair, damaged homes must be rebuilt, and livelihoods need to be restored. The economic impact of the quake is significant, with businesses facing losses and disruptions to vital supply chains. However, Japan's commitment to innovation and technological advancement plays a crucial role in enabling faster and more efficient reconstruction efforts.

The earthquake also serves as a stark reminder of the importance of disaster preparedness. Robust early warning systems, strong building codes, and regular public education programs are essential to minimize damage and loss of life during future seismic events.
