The Pressure Zone by 
Mike Cooke . The Pressure Zone
Mike Cooke

The Story of a Pioneer Saturation Diver

This is a story about the first person to walk on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico at a depth greater than 1,000 feet.  And the first person to work on the bottom of the North Sea at 1,065 feet. From cutting free 50-gallon drums off a pipeline in a swamp outside Cameron, Louisiana with alligators sunning themselves on the barrels, to performing CPR at 1,000 feet in the North Sea. 'The Pressure Zone' is about diving and especially about saturation diving – about the dangers involved and what it was like to live under pressure for weeks on end.

Why men go to war and other stories

What was it that propelled young man to war in the 1940s? Was it pure patriotism, a sense of duty? A sense of adventure? Finding answers to such a question is difficult, given that many men were reluctant on their return from war to explain or discuss their motives. For many it was best to let the world return to normal and try to forget about the fear, the horror, the sacrifices of wartime.

What can indigenous and non-indigenous Australians hope to achieve in our walk together this century? The Uluru Statement from the Heart 2017 should see that treaty becomes a reality. Our future together depends on the resolve to end the silence on our dark history that began with colonisation when the bloodshed of massacres washed this land, of the psychological trauma of the stolen generation, and of human rights abuse. Of a people who never ceded any sovereignty of their land.

It is even rarer that he heads for Bangladesh (where his tiny wooden canoe collides with a thousand tonne steel barge), Yemen (finding himself in an Arab brothel while searching for a cold beer with lunch) and Peru (having his shoelaces chewed by guinea pigs while he eats the rodents’ brothers and sisters).

“It’s only a matter of realising there are certain basic principles to follow when fighting. When you’re driving a car and you want the car to turn the corner you don’t get out of the car, lift it and carry it around the corner. When you want to control a person you don’t have to fight the whole body. You attack one portion of the body and take control by exerting pain. Everybody responds to pain.” - Raoul Kent

Accountants - The Natural Trusted Advisors by Colin Dunn . Accountants - The Natural Trusted Advisors
Colin Dunn

Accountants are routinely awarded the accolade of ‘trusted advisor’. Yet many accountants, bogged down with compliance work, spend most of their time writing history instead of helping their clients make history. There has been much talk about how accountants should embrace value based, business improvement services so that they can step up and truly embrace their trusted advisor status. Yet little has been written on how to go about doing that in a way that sits firmly within the accountant’s heartland – the numbers.
