As a result of her growing connection to the Hawaiian angels, author Joyce Hau'oli Carter has learned to apply their teachings to awakening faith and living a life of aloha: of mercy and caring. Her simple story explores the idea that when we die, our souls don't reside in a distant paradise, apart from loved ones by the boundaries of time, space, curtains, and veils. In this book, a sequel to her first, Ms. Carter makes complicated concepts understandable and offers several life affirmations and practical steps to follow when a partner passes. Aloha: The author shows us that aloha is love, and love knows no bounds. When we think it can hold nothing further, the heart expands to receive more love. Our lives are cluttered with technology. We don't talk; we twitter, making such trappings essential to our happiness. By leading simpler lives of aloha, we open our spiritual selves to joy and the connection that lasts beyond life in spirit. Spirit: Our loved ones wish to connect. We can accept and gift ourselves with quiet moments in which to do so. The angels first came to the author through an ancient Hawaiian place of worship and her family followed her through that gateway into the world of angels. After thirty years without, faith returned and grew. The angels sent her mind messages, and because she chose to receive, the author now leads a kinder, more spiritual life. Faith: Faith is acceptance without the support of proof. With the passing of a dear one, the author began a search to find what she thought she had lost. When all goes well, we accept faith with ease; when it doesn't, a stronger faith may surface and sustain. Ms. Carter's faith increased as she added to her early Christian beginnings whatever other belief systems offered that fostered peace and love. Stars: We come from the stars and the stars come to us. Ms. Carter has always recognized that our world isn't the center of the universe, and through personal experience she discovered we are not alone. Knowing that other life forms exist is readily apparent to those who acknowledge. Conflict: When disputes arise between loved ones, the author suggests trying to make things right, striving to make amends immediately. To wait may be too late. We bring to our relationships our human frailties, speaking without thinking, listening but misconstruing intent. We see what faces us yet fail to understand. We touch people's lives too casually, accepting the ease of doubt rather than the difficult search for truth. Life: We cannot live our lives according to the dictates of others. Ultimately we are responsible only to the Creator and to ourselves. This world may be the place to make mistakes and start over, and when this life ends, we can welcome the one to come as a new experience and a chance to become all we are meant to be. No Veil: When we die, whatever we call our essence leaves its earthly bounds and moves on. The author believes other dimensions may occupy the same space as ours where spirits dwell, and life continues after death with nothing separating us from our loved ones. Recovery: As Ms. Carter examined the years since the angels came into her life, she recognized there had been significant changes. After her husband passed, she realized the need to survive the devastating loss. We need to pick up the pieces and deal with responsibilities. "There Is No Veil" offers advice for handling whatever situations lead up to a passing and the aftermath, presenting simple steps that help when we experience that loss. The author suggests that we prepare now. Discuss a plan. Write it down. Keep it updated. Tell family members how to use it. In the back of the book, Ms. Carter lists significant statements called wisdom gems and includes an informative outline that offers advice for dealing with tragedy. She also provides readers with a glossary and an English/Hawaiian pronunciation guide.

Interference in Large Wireless Networks

Since interference is the main performance-limiting factor in most wireless networks, it is crucial to characterize the interference statistics. The main two determinants of the interference are the network geometry (spatial distribution of concurrently transmitting nodes) and the path loss law (signal attenuation with distance). For certain classes of node distributions, most notably Poisson point processes, and attenuation laws, closed-form results are available, for both the interference itself as well as the signal-to-interference ratios, which determine the network performance. This monograph presents an overview of these results and gives an introduction to the analytical techniques used in their derivation. The node distribution models range from lattices to homogeneous and clustered Poisson models to general motion-invariant ones. The analysis of the more general models requires the use of Palm theory, in particular conditional probability generating functionals, which are briefly introduced in the appendix.

The seductiveness of touristed landscapes is simultaneously local and global, as travelled places are formed and reworked by the activities of diverse, mobile people, in their desires to experience situated, sensuous qualities of difference. Cartier and Lew’s interesting and informative book explores contemporary issues in travel and tourism and human geography, and the complex cultural, political, and economic activities at stake in touristed landscapes as a result of globalization. This book assesses travel and tourism as simultaneously cultural and economic processes, through ideas about place seduction and the formation of landscapes. Throughout, examples are given from urban and environmental touristed landscapes, from major world cities to tropical islands, and chapter contributions include: an analysis of the representational character of landscape and the built environment historic constructions of place seduction the importance of class, racial, and gender dimensions of place how mobility and the seduction of place orient identity formation the environmental impacts of tourism economies. Broad in scope, this book is ideal for social scientists and humanists who are interested in contemporary debates about place studies, mobility, and the located realities of globalization.

Hawaiian Ways and the Ties that Define

Many indigenous Hawaiians who have moved to the islands' cities languish at the bottom of the socioeconomic scale and are thought to have lost their cultural roots. Initially apolitical urban Hawaiians were often skeptical of activists who sought to revitalize traditional ways; yet, as Karen L. Ito shows, Hawaiian women in particular continue to maintain and express crucial aspects of their cultural heritage in their lifestyle and interactions with others. Ito conducted intensive fieldwork with six Honolulu families, all of which shared the distinguishing characteristics of Hawaii's matrifocal society. In her close examination of the friendships and family relations among the women in these households, she focuses on the significance of a traditional manner of speech known as "talk story" which they use when conversing together. She describes how her subjects employ metaphoric language to address issues concerning responsibility, retribution, understandings of self and personhood, and methods for conflict resolution. For these "lady friends," Ito finds, the emotional quality and quantity of their social relationships help define personal identity while their common concepts of morality bind them together. By applying ethnopsychological strategies to the exploration of culture, Ito demonstrates cultural continuity at a level where most observers would not expect to find it. Lady Friends brings a new dimension to Hawaiian research.

With her kitchen-table style storytelling, first-hand adventures, ancient poetry and song, and practical spiritual excercises, acclaimed new age author Sondra Ray uncovers another side of Hawaii that outsiders rarely see or truly understand: The wisdom and spirituality of the Hawaiian ancients and their kahuna wisdom. In Pele’s Wish, Ray acts as a messenger of the Aloha spirit with the teachings of the Kahunas, or "transmitters of secrets" with her personal guide, Maui-based kahuna Auntie Pua. The ancient rituals and basic tenets of the "Huna" way, loving yourself, nurturing other beings, the land, and living in harmony with all of life, is shared in Ray’s conversational, accessible style with meditations and practical exercises to bring the spirit of Aloha into our everyday lives. You don’t have to be Hawaiian to benefit from this ancient wisdom, wisdom that can lead to eternal life! Ray reveals a time-tested practical code leading to a deeper spiritual life, in tune with rhythms of the natural world. The ancient wisdom of the islands shows that in identifying the three core selves present in everyone, and in coordinating the way the three selves interact with each other, one can control one’s own reality; This is the Huna Way.
