              Wallace Bain retired in early 2020 after 28 distinguished years as a Coroner, most recently in Rotorua. During these years Mr Bain developed a national reputation for his sensitivity and compassion in dealing with difficult cases such as those of Nia Glassie and Moko Rangitoherir...i. That a child is killed in New Zealand as a result of abuse every five weeks he finds "unacceptable". He has also developed a reputation for being "a Coroner on the warpath" for his forthright demands from time to time that New Zealand's laws and regulations be changed to protect ordinary citizens. His work as a Coroner, says Wallace Bain, has been to speak for the dead to take care of the living. "After climbing the mountain I can finally enjoy the view."

              LONG BEFORE ROCKETING TO FAME AS A PEANUT-BUTTER BARON. Pic earned his keep making cool sandals for his schoolmates and expensive handbags for their mothers. leatherwork paid for his OE. He went to flower-powered San Francisco, had a hair-raising entanglement with a Colorado drug... gang, and lived in a bizarre squat in London, before returning to New Zealand and a fortnight in a psychiatric ward. He built a house on a commune, started an old-time photo business, joined a travelling rock band, and became a father. Next, he took up furniture making and helped establish the legendary Parnell Workshops and Storage, where his bespoke chairs morphed into tawdry giftware. After building a boat and sailing the Pacific, Pic moved to Nelson, where he started a spectacularly unsuccessful restaurant. Business success came with his charter-boat directory and sailing school. Then he retired. It was his disgust with commercial peanut butter that started him making his own. In a dozen years, he went from roasting nuts in a concrete mixer to employing fifty people. In February 2019, Pic's Peanut Butter World opened. Pic's unusual path to business success offers hope for anyone wanting to follow their dreams. His stories are exciting, full of insight, and very, very funny.

              How do we make our older buildings earthquake-safe? This book marks the ten-year anniversary of the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, which transformed this New Zealand city. It provides a first-hand insight into the typical types of damage that occurred during the sequence and show...cases earthquake-strengthening techniques that worked successfully and others that didn't. The collection of vivid photographs within this book comes from one of the most comprehensive databases on post-earthquake damage to masonry buildings in the world. It is hoped that the information within will inform professionals and students who will work on future retrofit projects, as well as reach the wider audience and increase public awareness of how a safer building environment can be achieved. The lessons learned from Christchurch will assist in preserving much-loved historic buildings and businesses, and they will help save precious lives. Author bio: Dr. Dmytro Dizhur is an award-winning chartered structural engineer who has dedicated his career to the mitigation of earthquake risks for large-scale national and global heritage buildings. Having advised on over 1000 projects for assessing and strengthening masonry buildings, Dizhur is a leader in devising creative and innovative testing methods for optimising strengthening solutions. He has assisted in redefining national and international guidelines for the assessment and earthquake retrofit design of masonry buildings.
