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.

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 Powell Papers
In 1849—months before the term “confidence man” was coined to identify a New York crook—Thomas Powell (1809–1887), a spherical, monocled, English poetaster, dramatist, journalist, embezzler, and forger, landed in Manhattan. Powell in London had capped a career of grand theft and literary peccadilloes by feigning a suicide attempt and having himself committed to a madhouse, after which he fled England. He had been an intimate of William Wordsworth, Elizabeth Barrett, Robert Browning, Charles Dickens, and a crowd of lesser literary folk.
Thoughtfully bearing what he presented as a volume of Tennyson with a few trifling revisions in the hand of the poet, Powell was embraced by the slavishly Anglophile New York literary establishment, including a young Herman Melville. In two pot-boilers—The Living Authors of England (1849) and The Living Authors of America (1850)—Powell denounced the most revered American author, Washington Irving, for plagiarism; provoked Charles Dickens to vengeful trans-Atlantic outrage and then panic; and capped his insolence by identified Irving and Melville as the two worst “enemies of the American mind.” For almost four more decades he sniped at Dickens, put words in Melville’s mouth, and survived even the most conscientious efforts to expose him. Long fascinated by this incorrigible rogue, Hershel Parker in The Powell Papers uses a few familiar documents and a mass of freshly discovered material (including a devastating portrait of Powell in a serialized novel) to unfold a captivating tale of skullduggery through the words of great artists and then-admired journalists alike.
