It is a record of His Royal Highness’ work during the 30 years in which he represented the Government of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, as Minister of Foreign Affairs and, later, as Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

As its title suggests, ‘Sana’a to San Jose: 1984-2015’ presents more than a local perspective.

Its focus throughout is on Brunei Darussalam’s relations with the international world of over 200 independent nations.

It sets out to show how a very small nation has made a positive, constructive contribution to this world.

It takes inspiration from the 1984 address by His Majesty on the occasion of joining the United Nations.

It identifies our principal points of international reference as regional, spiritual and global, through the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean), the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the United Nations (UN).

Throughout the 30-year period, His Royal Highness stresses the consistency of Brunei Darussalam’s approach to world affairs, from which the country has never veered.

That consistency has remained since the 1984 address to the UN.

Find out where great ideas come from.
A businessman struggles with his luggage at an airport and pioneers the wheeled suitcase. An engineer watches people using walkie-talkies and dreams up the mobile phone. A printer is frustrated by his unpredictable inks and creates the Pantone colour system.
Why were these particular people able to identify a problem, and how did they discover the solutions that everyone else missed? Where exactly did their great ideas come from, and how did they go about making them a reality?
In pursuit of answers, Pagan Kennedy has spent her career examining the creative process, interviewing inventors and engineers, scientists, psychologists and economists in a bid to understand how we create. In Inventology Kennedy collects their wisdom and explores a series of landmark inventions, taking us through the processes by which we have come to dream up new products and technologies, and conceived solutions to ‘impossible’ problems.
A must-read for anyone who is curious about imagination, design and innovation, Inventology will inspire and entertain, and will show you how to become more creative.

The Rockwills GUIDE TO SUCCESSION AND TRUSTS IN WEALTH MANAGEMENT

This is also the age of the great transfer of wealth! We are seeing in our generation, the largest transfer of money in the history of the world. The trust is expected to feature in much of the wealth transfer. According to the Merrill Lynch Capgemini World Wealth Report of 2007b, The wealth of Asia-Pacific High Net Worth Individuals (“HWNIs”) totalled US$8.4 trillion in 2006 with the overall HWNI population growing by 8.6% in that year. India, China, Indonesia and Singapore were among the top ten countries with the fastest growing HNWI populations.

Trust and Fiduciary services increasingly feature and complement the wealth management services offered in many established jurisdictions. In Singapore, amendments were made to the Trustee Act in December 2004. This was a major step in modernizing the trust law in Singapore and to boost Singapore’s efforts to establish itself as a centre for wealth management and offshore trust.

This book, now in it’s 2nd edition provides a timely and comprehensive coverage of the various aspects concerning trusts and succession in wealth management. It is written for financial services professionals to help them plan in matters such as the structuring of a suitable vehicle for their clients to hold investments and other assets and the distribution of the Client’s wealth.

This work is part of a debate that takes on the case of Brunei Darussalam. It offers the reader a good insight into Brunei, developments in its educational history and the way forward in order to attain one of the key targets in the goals of the nation. The work is rigorous, analytical, fair and hugely informative. I know it because I had the honour to supervise the original doctoral thesis that formed its foundation. Hence, I will seriously recommend this work to both specialist and non-specialist in education, Islamic Education for that matter, and those with special interest in the education system in Brunei Darussalam.

The Report: Brunei Darussalam 2014

Commanding the second-highest GDP per capita among all ASEAN member nations at $39,700 in 2013, Brunei Darussalam remains one of the most advanced economies in the South-east Asia region. Historically, the hydrocarbons industry has dominated the Bruneian economy and allowed the country to amass considerable wealth. However, the nation is making an earnest effort to diversify its economy to ensure future economic stability and sustainability.
Thanks in large part to the efforts of the Brunei Economic Development Board, the nation has successfully brought in several major international investments in recent years, including a multi-purpose defence and aviation training centre.
The Sultanate is also targeting growth in bio-industry through investments in research and development, as well as expanding the global reach of its halal food industry.

In addition to improvements and enhancements in this 6th edition, Research Methods in Physical Activity maintains the logical progression and presentation of information that make it the leading text in the field.

Individual chapters on historical, philosophical, epidemiological, descriptive, experimental, and qualitative research acquaint students with possible research approaches, while a new final chapter in that section introduces mixed-methods models that combine different categories of research into one study. In those chapters, four scholarly contributors lend their expertise to provide in-depth knowledge from their respective fields. In addition, humorous stories, anecdotes, and photos are sprinkled throughout the text to demonstrate key points and enliven the reading without detracting from the content. The text concludes with instructions on preparing and presenting the research report.
