A remarkably warm-hearted, uplifting and inspiring story of one boy´s survival against the odds. Abdi´s world fell apart when he was only 15 and Somalia´s vicious civil war hit Mogadishu. Unable to find his family and effectively an orphan, he fled with some 60 others, heading to Kenya. On the way, death squads hunted them and they daily faced violence, danger and starvation. After almost four months, they arrived in at refugee camps in Kenya - of the group he´d set out with, only five had survived. All alone in the world and desperate to find his family, Abdi couldn´t stay in Kenya, so he turned around and undertook the dangerous journey back to Mogadishu. But the search was fruitless, and eventually Abdi made his way - alone, with no money in his pockets - to Romania, then to Germany, completely dependent on the kindness of strangers. He was just 17 years old when he arrived in Melbourne. He had no English, no family or friends, no money, no home. Yet, against the odds, he not only survived, he thrived. Abdi went on to complete secondary education and later university. He became a youth worker, was acknowledged with the 2007 Victorian Refugee Recognition Award, and was featured in the SBS second series of Go Back to Where You Came From. Despite what he has gone through, Abdi is a most inspiring man, who is constantly thankful for his life and what he has. Everything he has endured and achieved is testament to his quiet strength and courage, his resilience and most of all, his warm-hearted, shining, and enduring optimism. 1. Language: English.

From Descartes and Newton to Einstein and Bohr, Capra takes us on a journey through the past four centuries of the scientific revolution and leads us to the birth of a new worldview in response to the escalating world crises. He reveals the difficulty in translating abstract ideas to the screen, and how the use of visual metaphor became a powerful tool and symbolized the importance of the ecological dimension.

A new scientific understanding of life at all levels of living systems is currently evolving. At its heart is the awareness that everything is interconnected and interrelated. Out of this awareness comes the greatest challenge of our times--creating sustainable communities. While we have been told for decades that we live in the Information Age, Fritjof Capra says, ´´the idea that success in the 21st century will depend on access to information is hype; it´s nonsense. There is enough information--we have an information overload. Success and survival in the 21st century will depend on ecological awareness and on new ideas of how to change our technology and ways of doing business. Our children need to learn values, ideas, knowledge and wisdom--not just how to use computers to access more and more information.´´ Fritjof Capra, Ph.D., physicist and systems theorist, is a founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy in Berkeley, California, which promotes ecology and systems thinking in primary and secondary education.
