Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Dirty Secrets of the World's Worst Employee is the story of the author's journey back to herself. Jenn Sadai tells us that she already knew she wanted to be a writer when she was a young girl but, as so often happens, distractions and self-doubt kept her from that goal for many years. Throughout her winding (and entertaining) career path she learned valuable lessons, met some unbelievable people, rediscovered her passion for writing and most importantly, her con-fidence. In the end, she turned those experiences into the inspiration for this very book, which is at once humble, grateful, funny and clever. It is for anyone who has felt like they were alone and unsupported in the world and a beautiful reminder that things can and do get so much better. -"

Download or read book Washington s Dark Secret written by John Maszka and published by U of Nebraska Press. This book was released on 2018-10-01 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As a scholar of terrorism, John Maszka has examined how politics, the media, and the War on Terror play off one another. His most startling claim is that the War on Terror is a war for natural resources—and that terrorism has little to do with it. Once the military became mechanized, oil quickly became the most sought-after commodity on the planet, and the race for energy was eventually framed as a matter of national security. Ironically, Maszka argues, the true threats to national security are the massive oil conglomerates themselves. Maszka delves into the repercussions of a government that capitalizes on an us versus them mentality, such as the demonizing of an entire religion, sensationalizing “radical” violent attacks, and loosely applying the word “terrorism.” Because the United States’ current approach to terrorism has led to the politicization and abuse of the term, Maszka suggests a need for a standardized definition of terrorism. Currently, too many acts of violence can be labeled terrorism, resulting in state and nonstate actors labeling their enemies as “terrorists,” yet claiming their own acts of violence as legitimate and retributive. Maszka argues that much of the violence labeled as terrorism today is not terrorism at all. In an ambitious attempt to connect seemingly unrelated events in politics and the media, Maszka offers an unflinching portrayal of the hypocrisy underlying our foreign policy.

Download or read book The Second Life Herald written by Peter Ludlow and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 2007 with total page 313 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When a virtual journalist for a virtual newspaper reporting on the digital world ofan online game lands on the real-world front page of the New York Times, it just might signal thedawn of a new era. Virtual journalist Peter Ludlow was banned from The Sims Online for being a bittoo good at his job--for reporting in his virtual tabloid The Alphaville Herald on thecyber-brothels, crimes, and strong-arm tactics that had become rife in the game--and when the Times,the BBC, CNN, and other media outlets covered the story, users all over the Internet called thebanning censorship. Seeking a new virtual home, Ludlow moved the Herald to another virtualworld--the powerful online environment of Second Life--just as it was about the explode onto theinternational mediascape and usher in the next iteration of the Internet. In The Second Life Herald,Ludlow and his colleague Mark Wallace take us behind the scenes of the Herald as they report on theemergence of a fascinating universe of virtual spaces that will become the next generation of theWorld Wide Web: a 3-D environment that provides richer, more expressive interactions than the Web weknow today. In 1992, science fiction writer Neal Stephenson imagined "the Metaverse," avirtual space that we would enter via the Internet and in which we would conduct important parts ofour daily lives. According to Ludlow and Wallace, that future is coming sooner than we may think.They chronicle its chaotic, exhilarating, frightening birth, including the issue that the mainstreammedia often ignore: conflicts across the client-server divide over who should write the lawsgoverning virtual worlds. Peter Ludlow, Professor of Philosophy and James B. and Grace J. NelsonFellow at the University of Michigan, is the author of Semantics, Tense, and Time: An Essay in theMetaphysics of Natural Language (MIT Press, 1999), among other books, and the editor of CryptoAnarchy, Cyberstates, and Pirate Utopias (MIT Press, 2001) and High Noon on the Electronic Frontier(MIT Press, 1996). A freelance journalist, Mark Wallace has written widely on virtual worlds andonline games for a variety of publications, including Wired and The New York Times. He is the editorof leading metaverse blog 3pointD.com, and an author of Second Life: The Official Guide.
Download or read book A World on Fire written by Joe Jackson and published by Penguin. This book was released on 2007-02-27 with total page 432 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Like Charles Seife’s Zero and Dava Sobel’s Longitude, this passionate intellectual history is the story of the intersection of science and the human, in this case the rivals who discovered oxygen in the late 1700s. That breakthrough changed the world as radically as those of Newton and Darwin but was at first eclipsed by revolution and reaction. In chronicling the triumph and ruin of the English freethinker Joseph Priestley and the French nobleman Antoine Lavoisier—the former exiled, the latter executed on the guillotine—A World on Fire illustrates the perilous place of science in an age of unreason.

Download or read book Burn Collector written by Al Burian and published by PM Press. This book was released on 2010-11-15 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Burn Collector compiles the first nine issues of Al Burian’s sporadically published and widely acclaimed personal zine. Beginning in the mid-nineties, Burian distributed his work through the tight-knit network of the DIY punk music scene. Burn Collector caught on because of its unusual content—in a scene rife with dogmatic political diatribes and bland record reviews, Burian presented his readers with humorous anecdotes, philosophical musings, and nuanced descriptions of odd locales and curious characters, taken mostly from outside of the punk milieu—and also because of the author’s narrative voice, which reflected the literary influences of Celine, Henry Miller, or even David Sedaris more than the influence of his contemporaries in the zine world. The writing in Burn Collector blueprinted a post-punk persona that was smart, strange, political but not correct, attached to subculture, but striving also for a connection to the world at large, and to the greater themes of human existence. The book went through six printings, along the way garnering acclaim from readers, inspiring a film (Matt McCormick’s 2009, Some Days are Better than Others) and a major label album (Thrice’s 2003, The Artist in the Ambulance). More importantly, the book inspired readers to write and self-publish: to do it themselves, in the true punk spirit.
Download or read book Bomb Girls Britain s Secret Army The Munitions Women of World War II written by Jacky Hyams and published by Kings Road Publishing. This book was released on 2013-08-05 with total page 300 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: They were the unsung heroines of World War II; the wives, mums and teenage girls, all 'doing their bit' for the war effort, clocking in daily to work in cast munitions factories, helping make the explosives, bullets and war machines that would ensure victory for Britain.It was dangerous, dirty and exhaustive work. They worked round the clock, often exposed to toxic, lethal chemicals. A factory accident could mean blindness, loss of limbs - or worse. Many went home with acid burns, yellow skin or discoloured hair. Others were forced to leave their loved ones and move to live with total strangers in unfamiliar surroundings. Frequently, their male bosses were coarse and unsympathetic.Yet this hidden army of nearly two million women toiled on regardless through the worst years of the war, cheerfully ignoring the dangers and the exhaustion, as bombing, rationing and the heartbreak of loss or separation took their toll on everyone in the country.Only now, all these years later, have they chosen to tell their remarkable stories. Here, in their own words, are the vivid wartime memories of the 'secret army' of female munitions workers, whose resilience and sheer grit in the face of danger has only now started to emerge.These are the intimate and personal stories of an unforgettable group of women, whose hard work and quiet courage made a significant contribution to Britain's war effort. They didn't fire the bullets, but they filled them up with explosives. And in doing so, they helped Britain win the war.
