Prof. Lucas Festugato
(Porto Alegre, BRAZIL)
Nominated by his Peers and now recognized by the Sovereign of the Principality of Hutt River.
Prof. Festugato manages a research laboratory in Brazil, selflessly sharing what he knows, helping everyone to develop new information and knowledge in research on reinforced soils, where his knowledge in Civil Engineering, more precisely in Soil Mechanics & Reinforced Soils, proves remarkable.

Besides developing new knowledge, Prof. Festugato cares about making it available and useful to everyone who may benefit from it.
A very good example of that is a trip he made to Africa, specifically to Namialo, in Mozambique,
to teach the local community workers how to use local natural fibres to reinforce soil to build houses
(See Pictures 1 and 2).

Another example of his concerns about spreading knowledge is all the revision work he does for many distinguished scientific journals including, Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, Geotextiles and Geomembranes, Construction and Building Materials, among many others,
without receiving any payment.

From very basic to highly developed advanced knowledge, Prof. Festugato finds a way to create, teach and make information available and useful to everyone who may need it.

Dr. Chi Zhang
(Sydney, N.S.W, - AUSTRALIA (expat PRC)

Bestowed with the Rank of Companion of the Order of Wisdom and Learning
Nominated by his Peers and recognized by the Sovereign of the Principality of Hutt River, for his excellent service and dedication to humanity & knowledge proven by his work, particularly with those suffering anxiety and stress. Work both to heal and to educate others that they might also take on board the traditional Chinese Natural Medical Treatments that many have forgotten exist. In many patients, treatment using traditional Chinese medicine will succeed where accepted western medicine may not have fared so well. Dr. Zhang gives of his time to help all those in need of the skills and information that he holds dear.

Congratulations!

D.O.W.L.
  Prof. Katrina Watts (B.A.)
(Stokers Siding N.S.W. - AUSTRALIA)

Bestowed with the Rank of  Dame of the Order of Wisdom and Learning
Nominated by her Peers and recognized by the Sovereign of the Principality of Hutt River for outstanding service to the sport of Sumo wrestling both in Japan & Australia as well as support provided world-wide.

A career teaching English and modern languages at junior and high school in Australia led Prof. Watts to Japan where she stayed for 25 years teaching English at a private women's university.
During this time she developed a love for the sport of Sumo Wrestling and she soon found herself a studio commentator for the NHK TV Network. Her knowledge of English and modern languages made it possible to assist the professional, Japan Sumo Association, and the amateur, International Sumo Federation, in various capacities such as interpreter and stadium announcer for foreign tours and international competitions.

Working with amateur sumo in Japan provided the opportunity to be involved, as an executive board member, in the setting up of the Women's Sumo Federation.
On her return to Australia Prof. Watts took over as President of the Australian Sumo Federation and she has held that position for 9 years now, still currently President and for the same period she has also been a board member of the International Sumo Federation and IFS Continental Director for Oceania.

Although no longer a commentator for the television, Prof Watts remains deeply involved in a variety of sumo related activities at home and abroad including arena commentator at major tournaments world-wide and she remains a board member of the International Sumo Federation and is still the Continental Director for Oceania.

Prof Watts has freely given a great deal of her time and energy for 35 years now, to the sport that she loves. Teaching others world-wide of the value and technical worth of the sport, bringing a relatively unknown sport and educating the public in general so that it becomes far better known.

Elevated to the Rank of Dame Commander of the Illustrious Order of Merit for:
Outstanding Service with the Legion of Frontiersmen, Independent Command, CANADA
and to her local community in many other areas.

On top of her service with the LFICC, Dame Stella has remained President of the Ridgedale Seniors Club, a position she has held for many years, health again not being permitted to force her to "stand down/retire" but rather she battles on, bettering the lives of the people around her.
