But when that love becomes obsession, taking them from sketchy spice halls to ancient ruins on a world wracked by deadly storms, that becomes harder to do. Everyone has secrets, spacers maybe more than most. Part of a first mate’s job is to keep them or share them. Rolee has never had a hard time picking between the two, but when her captain’s love turns to a dark obsession she will have to choose.

Rolee has to ask herself who’s going to protect her.
Because the dangers of the void are whatever’s there - including what human beings are capable of.

Favaro’s Carbon Code of Conduct is based on the four Rs: Reduce, Replace, Refine, and Rehabilitate. After outlining the scientific basics of climate change and explaining the logic of the code he prescribes, the author describes carbon-friendly technologies and behaviors we can adopt in our daily lives. However, he acknowledges that individual action, while vital, is insufficient. To achieve global sustainability, he insists that we must make the fight against climate change "go viral" through conspicuous conservation.
The Carbon Code is a tool of empowerment. People don’t need to be climate change experts to be part of the solution! In this book, Brett Favaro shows you how to take ownership of your carbon footprint and adopt a lifestyle of conspicuous conservation that will spur governments and corporations to do the same. Climate-friendly action is the best decision on every dimension—economics, health and well-being, and social justice. Saving the planet is, after all, about saving ourselves. The Carbon Code provides a framework to do this, and helps you to become a hero in the fight against climate change.-- David Miller, President and CEO, WWF Canada

Training and competing in an Ironman triathlon is not for the faint hearted. Completing an Ironman has been a dream of mine for many years and 2010 was going to be the year I attempted this grueling event. 2.4 miles of swimming followed by 112 miles of biking before finishing with a marathon - 26.2 miles. I signed up for Ironman Arizona in November of 2009, exactly a year in advance. Little did I know at the time that I had been born with a congenital heart defect. For 41 years, I had been living, training and competing in triathlons with a dysfunctional heart that was slowly failing. This is a story about my journey from diagnosis, open heart surgery and recovery to the decision to train and race in an Ironman triathlon, all within eight months.
This book is an inspirational must read for anyone facing surgery or attempting an Ironman.
