About the Authors
Andrew Dewar was born in Toronto, Ontario, and graduated from Ryerson Polytechnic Institute (B.A. Journalism) and University of Toronto (M.A. Japanese Studies, Library and Information Science) before moving to Japan in 1988. After completing his doctoral studies in library science at Keio University, he joined the faculty of a junior college in Japan. Soon after arriving in Japan he rediscovered his childhood love of designing and flying paper airplanes, after renewing contact with Yasuaki Ninomiya (creator of WhiteWings), with whom he had corresponded as a child.
His passion for paper airplanes led him to become president of the Fukushima Paper Airplane Club. Dewar's first book was published in 1998, in Japanese. To date he has published almost 30 books, half in Japanese and half in English, including Simple Origami Airplanes Kit, High-Performance Paper Airplanes Kit, One Minute Paper Airplanes Kit, Ultimate Paper Airplanes for Kids and many other paper crafting books and kits. His interests have expanded beyond paper airplanes to other forms of paper engineering including origami, karakuri toys that move in interesting ways, a planetarium, working astronomical instruments, dinosaurs, and much more. He also teaches paper airplane workshops and does seminars at schools, libraries, community centers, and museums, for people of all ages: children, families, and seniors.
He lived and taught library science in Fukushima, Japan, until the giant earthquake and nuclear accident in March 2011, when the city became unsafe. After a brief stay in Canada, he's returned with his family to Gifu, Japan.

White Paper On Norms For Good Governance In The Quran
Guidance on good governance in the Quran is enthralling. Over and over again the Quran states that good governance stakeholders must beware of leaders like Pharaoh, and policies must not be like those of the people of Noah, the people of Lot and exploiters of the land. Decision making too must be based on mutual consent and overall welfare of the community - upholding justice, rule of law, sharing community resources, promotion of fair trading and ridding off corruption and economic injustice. In a nutshell good governance is allowing only sincere persons use their common sense to decide on policies and in the implementation of those policies because they have nothing to hide thus there will little barriers to being transparent in the process of decision making and their execution. They are humble enough to submit to God's decrees wholeheartedly without any notions of their creed and custom ways are superior to people of other creed. Just refer to verses Q2:42 and Q5:48 of the Quran. This White Paper on Norms for Good Governance in the Quran is intended to be an introduction to how government departments, public and private organizations as well as individuals can apply Islamic principles to enhance work ethics, increase productivity and service levels, prosper the local community and the nation as a whole through higher standards of living. Diagnostic studies on the specific measures needed for each unit must of course be tailored fit to encompass each unit's unique situation and circumstances. Good governance is about getting priorities right for the nation and specific communities with regards to policies for their security, welfare and economic and non-economic activities as well as to how they may conduct personal inter-relationships and use of personal liberties. To a certain extent policies based on Islamic principles surpasses any welfare state configurations because there would be no free-loaders, lesser demand on public funding to all cooked-up causes and less room for unscrupulous corrupt practitioners to flourish. There are enablers to promote better governance of society and to make the economic system more equitable. This is covered in Section E of this white paper. Section D will address work ethics, fair business practices and what constitutes exploitation
The Papers Of James Madison: 1 March - 30 September 1809
Edited by Robert A. Rutland and Thomas A. MasonPresidential style is an important attribute for holders of the nation's highest office, but the first volume of James Madison's presidential papers indicate that he was a reserved and unpretentious man concerned more with the substance than the style of the office. As the 1809 letters show, President Madison was besieged by office seekers and eccentric citizens who expected the chief executive to show concern for their personal problem. Ravenous politicians sought jobs for themselves and relatives. Madison personally answered at length the many testimonials from citizens' rallies and political gatherings. The domestic side of White House life the decorating and improvement of the President's House also forms an important segment of the documentary record. The multiplicity of presidential concerns revealed in the volume add a new perspective to our historic view of the nation's highest office."
