Captain Cook Bicentenary - First Day of Issue April 20, 1970.

Australia Post; 1970.
Point Hicks was Cook's ship's first sighting of the Australian Coast, in his log recorded as 19th April 1770, the apparent anomaly in dates explained by the fact that "when crossing the 180th meridian of Longitude, Cook made no adjustment to the dates in the log and the journal, and all dates mentioned in the log during the period spent on the Australian East Coast must be advanced by one full day to give the correct chronology" Cook named the land sighted Point Hicks, because it was his Lieutenant Hicks who made the first sighting.

Since the fifteenth century, when humanist writers began to speak of a "middle" period in history linking their time to the ancient world, the nature of the Middle Ages has been widely debated. Across the millennium from 500 to 1500, distinguished historian Johannes Fried describes a dynamic confluence of political, social, religious, economic, and scientific developments that draws a guiding thread through the era: the growth of a culture of reason.

Drawing on historical analogies, Sageman argues that Jihadism is self-limiting in terms of both structural capability and appeal. Eventually, its followers will turn away from violence as a means of expressing their discontent. The book concludes with Sageman's recommendations for counterterrorism law enforcement efforts. Homeland security he argues is best accomplished through a strategy of bringing to justice real terrorists, containing potential terrorists, and exercising restraint with respect to the Muslim community.

And how, despite the French court's opening a case concerning Chanel's espionage activities during the war, she was able to return to Paris at age seventy and triumphantly resurrect and reinvent herself- and rebuild what has become the iconic House of Chanel.

Melbourne; The Miegunyah Press; 2000.
"The letters Walter and Mary Richardson wrote to each other between 1854 and 1877 depict, with often surprising frankness, a loving relationship between a man and a woman that was both mutual and enduring. Aspects of their relationship were used in their daughter's classic trilogy The Fortunes of Richard Mahony. Henry Handel Richardson and her later biographers, however, tended to focus more on the man than on the woman. Certainly, many more letters from Walter survive, and Mary's letters are much more difficult to read in the original. However, they reveal her to be at least Walter's equal in passion and devotion."
