Meeting Miss Mollie (London Lights Book 1)

Annabelle is a hard-nosed writer with a sound marriage, a stylish flat, a thriving career at Adorn magazine and a busy social life. She has only one ambition--to be the best-known advice columnist in the UK. When her world is turned upside down by her husband's infidelity she strikes out on her own and answers an ad to flat with a jet-setting businessman. As Annabelle begins to settle she sees things in her new house aren't quite what they seem and her problems mount.

Christian is an attractive and wealthy property developer whose life is on track. He owns a luxurious house in an exclusive part of town, travels extensively, and is engaged to his beautiful model girlfriend. But despite this, he knows something is missing from his life.

As they get closer, Annabelle and Christian discover much about themselves. Annabelle forges a relationship with the strangest of friends--Mollie, Christian's dog--who teaches her new habits and values. At the same time Christian realises his girlfriend may not be the woman he really wants. Can Annabelle and Christian overcome the odds and forge a new love?

Meeting Miss Mollie is the first book in the London Lights series of contemporary British romance novels that feature lies, loss, loyalty and love. If you like Jill Mansell, Sophie Kinsella, or Marian Keyes, then you'll love Di Jones's entertaining and heartwarming romance.

Inspired by Art: The Last Concubine (The David Chronicles Book 9)

Inspired by Art: The Last Concubine is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David. This volume focuses on the last concubine, Abishag, the rivalry between his sons, Adonijah and Solomon, and the transition of power to his chosen heir, ensuring his legacy for future generations.

These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscripts inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the second of which is A Peek at Bathsheba, where she imagines the love affair and the ensuing scandal. Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a study course analyzing the contrasts in viewpoints around the biblical story.

This collection is arranged not by artist, nor by artistic style or era, but rather by the story moment-by-moment, blow-by-blow, as imagined by various artists. Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Chagall, Picasso, and Jan Steen to name but a few.

Beginner's Digital SLR Crash Course: Complete guide to mastering digital photography basics, understanding exposure, and taking better pictures.

Who Else Wants To Take Better Pictures?

That's what this guide is all about; making the most of your digital camera, so that you can create beautiful photographs. You won't find all the complicated technical jargon that fills other books and blogs. I was like you at one point - I was just a guy who had no clue how to use all the fancy features of my new digital camera, and it was an extremely frustrating experience. My pictures were awful, and I was starting to question why I spent so much money on a DSLR.



Sound familiar?



I decided I wouldn't settle for mediocre results, so I spent years of trial and (mostly) error to figure out all the tips and little known tricks that I'll help you learn in this concise digital photography guide.



Give Me 24 Hours - And I'll Make You A Better Photographer

I'm going to teach you how to take better photos today. You'll see an improvement in your photos right away and they'll keep getting even better as you practice. Students in my digital photography workshops pay $100 per hour to see drastic improvement in their photography, and you get all the same information at a fraction of the cost. I believe in the 80/20 rule; I'm going to give you 20% of the tricks that will get 80% of the results so you can spend more time doing what you love.



Are You Harnessing The Creative Power Of These 3 Camera Modes?

Shooting in automatic mode can produce a decent photo every now and then, but you have zero creative control. The digital SLR cameras on the market offer several better modes to create beautiful photos. I'm going to walk you through each one of those modes, one at a time, so that you know exactly how and when to use them. The camera modes we'll master together include:

Aperture Priority mode (Av, A)Shutter Priority mode (Tv, S)Manual Mode (M)Warning: If You Shoot In Auto Mode, You Have Wasted $1000

Prices have come down significantly, but cameras are still really expensive. There's no point in having an expensive camera if you're just shooting in Auto mode, because you could have spent a tenth the money for the same results. If you don't take advantage of the more advanced modes that you'll master with this guide, you've wasted hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a tool you can't use properly.



11 More Things You'll Learn About Your Digital Camera

Painting is my life: Albert Dolmans

Painting is my Life is not only the story of Albert Dolmans' varied life and travels, but the result of the pleasure he has taken in recording on canvas or paper what has struck him along the way. Its numerous color plates and drawings reveal his talent to capture the majestic and the mundane, while proving just how universal and timeless his art has remained, despite a changing world. A figurative artist, he shares with the reader his deep affinity with nature and his passion for his craft.

Here you have a window onto the life of this Dutch-American artist, whose possibilities changed completely when, just a young boy he was up-rooted from his sleepy village in southern Holland, literally weeks before the Germans marched into it. With his mother and sisters, he crossed Europe by train to Genoa, Italy, to join the ship that would take them across the Atlantic to settle in Berkeley, California, to face the life-changing experiences that awaited him in the United States.

A scholarship student at the Californian College of the Arts in Oakland, he studied under George Post, Karl Baumann, and Otis Oldfield. Following his passion as an artist, he later became part of the North Californian Figurative School and the Society of Western Artists. It was also about this time, that with great pride he became an American citizen.

The varied scenery of California inspired him, as did the vastness and variety of so many States. He never tired of driving across the country, (which he did on four occasions), each time taking a different route, discovering and painting the many facets that struck him along the way. Albert also began returning to Europe, especially to his native Holland which naturally spoke to him. Travelling through the rest of Europe and beyond for the first time, he was struck by the characteristic scenery of each, and marveled at the impressive architecture so typical of each.

An admirer of Monet and Sisley, his work is impressionistic. Whether in oils, watercolors pastels or pen and ink, this book shows the ease with which he catches the subtle differences in mood and atmosphere; from the magnitude and power of Yosemite National Park, to the simplicity of the Californian backcountry; the busy world harbor of Rotterdam, to the gentle landscape of the lowlands with its wide horizons; the contrasting cities of London, Paris, or Rome to a boatyard in Venice, a quiet graveyard in Wales or black-faced sheep in a sleepy village in the Scottish Highlands; ancient French hill villages like St. Paul de Vence, lavender fields or the vineyards of Provence, or the vitality and color of the Riviera. And in all such places, Albert finds and taps into the calm diversity of nature which grounds and inspires him.

Painting is my Life is the story of a contented man, the Dutch-American landscape painter who modestly shares his experiences together with the product of what he has enjoyed and created. Now in his mid eighties, he continues to paint, as this is his raison d'etre - and what he continues to most enjoy doing.

Modern Sculptures: Conceptual Art Idea Guide

This book will show you how you can create modern artworks without a giant budget. This book is full of rather sloppy drawings instead of polished Photoshop stuff: I intentionally chose to publish the ideas in the raw state. This book is about ideas, not about products or existing artworks. This book is a mess. At the same time it's a practical guide. It's supposed to inspire you to make your own artworks and exhibit them. You may use these ideas for your installations. Whether you're a new aspiring artist, an art teacher or someone who likes thinking about art - you will be able to follow my thoughts, and get your own value out of it.

Since this book is not a novel, there is no need to read it in a linear way. It's made for browsing and thinking.

BC Guitar

Welcome to Beginning Contemporary Guitar,

As a teacher, I've observed that new students vary widely in age and past experience. Some students have played an instrument and have learned to read music but are new to the guitar. Others may have some experience with the guitar but no formal training in the language of music. And some students have never played a musical instrument.

No matter which background applies to you, if you're taking this course, then you've decided to start from the beginning to develop a solid foundation with both the guitar and reading music.

The materials list for this course has three required elements:

1) You'll need a six string acoustic or electric guitar,

2) A medium gauge guitar plectrum (guitar pick),

3) And a computer, laptop, or handheld electronic device.

This course is offered in digital format, and some of the course material includes interactive audio/visual media. In order to take full advantage of the interactive elements, be sure to use a device with audio/video capability.

Thank you for choosing this coursework for your lessons. After many years of watching new students develop into musicians, I strongly believe that a program which embraces the language of music is the best beginning for a lifetime of musical fulfillment.

So Lonesome: Hank Williams and the Creation of Country Music (Chicago Shorts)



Hank Williams (1923-53) was an American singer-songwriter and musician regarded as the most important country music artist of all time, creator of an unforgettable sound and persona that helped to define the genre from its infancy and beyond. Though unable to read or notate music to any substantive degree, Williams recorded 11 number one hits between 1948 and 1953, which carried him to music's mainstream and left an enduring legacy. In So Lonesome, Richard A. Peterson captures the free-wheeling entrepreneurial spirit of an era gone by, when the Grand Ole Opry put Nashville's star on the map, while detailing how Williams came to fame and helped launch country music both during his life and after his death. More than just a history of the music and one of its most celebrated performers, So Lonesome explores what it means to live an authentic life within the confines of marketing popular culture.

Tales of a Tiller Girl Part 1 of 3

A heart-warming nostalgia memoir from a member of the world famous dance troupe, The Tiller Girls. Based in London in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, Irene's story will transport readers back to a more innocent, simple way of life.

This is the story of a little girl who loved to dance. Growing up in London in the 1930s, dancing was so much more to Irene than just a hobby. It was her escape and it took her off into another world away from the harsh realities of life. A fairytale world away from the horrors of WW2, from the grief of losing her father and missing her mother who she didn't see for three years while she was drafted to help with the war effort. And far away from her cold-hearted grandparents who treated her like an inconvenience.

Finally it led to her winning a place as a Tiller Girl; the world's most famous dance troupe known for their 32-and-a-half high kicks a minute and precise, symmetrical routines. For four years she opened and closed the show at the prestigious London Palladium and performed on stage alongside huge stars such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Judy Garland.

It was a strange mixture of glamour and bloody hard work but it was certainly never dull. And being a Tiller Girl also gave Irene the opportunity to see firsthand the devastating effects of WW2, both here and abroad.

Heart-warming, enlightening and wonderfully uplifting, Irene's evocative story will transport readers back to a time when every town and holiday resort had several theatres and when dance troupes like The Tiller Girls were the epitome of glitz and glamour.

A Little History of Photography Criticism; or, Why Do Photography Critics Hate Photography? (Chicago Shorts)

In A Short History of Photography Criticism; or, Why Do Photography Critics Hate Photography?, Susie Linfield contends that by looking at images of political violence and learning to see the people in them, we engage in an ethically and politically necessary act that connects us to our modern history of violence. For many years, Linfield's acute analysis of photographs--from events as wide-ranging as the Holocaust, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, and recent acts of terrorism--has explored a complex connection between the practices of photojournalism and the rise of human rights ideals. By asking how photography should respond to the darker shadows of modern life, Linfield insists on the continuing moral relevance of photojournalism, while urging us not to avert our eyes from what James Agee once labeled "the cruel radiance of what is."

Billionaire Baby Secret Book One: A Curvy, Secret Pregnancy Romance

His eyes tell me every last, dirty detail of what he'll to do to me.

It was supposed to just be karaoke for my birthday. But the way that sexy stranger at the bar is looking at me, I'm afraid I'll be singing twice tonight - first on stage. And then in his bedroom.

Maybe it's his gorgeous English accent. Or those sizzling eyes that undress me right here in the bar. Well, my good-for-nothing cheating boyfriend has just broken up with me, so I'm going to let the stranger buy me a drink.

Not that I'd be brave enough to actually follow through. I'm not the type of girl that just goes out and sleeps around. Even when those lips make me tremble. Even when all I want to do is rip that million dollar suit off his smoking hot body and take him right here in the bar.

He shouldn't be interested in a girl like me. Guys don't go for curvy and intelligent - or at least, that's what my ex-boyfriend kept telling me.

But that stranger - he keeps looking at me like like I'm the only one in the room. I don't know what to do - I mean, how long do you have to wait after you've broken up with somebody?

And what happens if my ex-boyfriend wants me back?

Warning: Billionaire Baby Secret Book 1 is a short, steamy romance so hot it will have you fanning yourself (and looking for your closest karaoke bar). It contains smoking hot action between a curvy BBW and a gorgeous Billionaire, and includes sizzling scenes which are for adults only.

This is the first book in the Billionaire Baby Secret Series by Nikki Steele, the mistress of billionaire romance sagas.

Adventures of Power Postcards from the Set: How I Made an Epic Indie Film

POSTCARDS FROM THE SET: HOW I MADE AN EPIC INDIE FILM tells the story of the making of the cult comedy ADVENTURES OF POWER, an all-star movie about a mine worker who discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers that has the power to change the world. "One of the funniest films in recent years" - New York Magazine. "The best rock movie in many a year" - Neil Peart (drummer, RUSH).

In POSTCARDS FROM THE SET, writer-director-actor Ari Gold makes public the hilarious and heartbreaking letters and photos he sent to his circle of friends during the making of his cult movie. We get the inside scoop about dealing with celebrities and egotistical agents, fighting mining conglomerates for the right to shoot, and hard days and nights facing lightning, giant rats, and broken bones on the way to Sundance and beyond.

Gold's 4-year journey to finance, shoot, and distribute a movie on a fraction of a Hollywood budget takes him across Utah, New Mexico, New York, New Jersey, and California, and eventually as far afield as Guatemala, the Czech Republic, and Thailand. Along the way, Gold encounters haters and Hollywood executives who don't understand the film's spirit--but also collects a dedicated core of 100,000 fans, friends, and volunteers who champion the film and its underlying message of hope.

Rocket 88: Classic Singles

What you are about to read is the personal opinion of a team of music fans, journalists and editors on a wide variety of music tracks. Although, while that's what they're called in the post-iTunes world, back when they were first recorded and released, the songs discussed and celebrated in this book had been collectively known as 'singles', and came engraved on slabs of shellac (between 1949 and 1958 or so) and vinyl (from 1955 to 1995 or so). The singles of the latter half of the 20th century were two-sided, with the designated 'A' side being the version that record companies wanted radio stations and jukeboxes to play, and considered to be commercially stronger than the 'B' side (which often appeared only on a single's 'B' side and wasn't usually included on any subsequent LP release). Please bear with me if this is all a little 'duhhh' for those of you old enough to have grown up owning singles, and caring desperately whether your single was going to make the charts each week; there are now at least two generations of music fans for whom the idea of having to leave the house, travel to a specialist store, and ask someone if they could listen to a single before buying it--and receiving a physical object, wrapped in a specially designed sleeve when they hand over hard cash--is plain weird. You try telling kids today that you had to physically hunt out music and travel vast distances just to hear anything other than mainstream pop music, and they will probably laugh at you. They'd probably ask 'Why should you care so much?'

Hopefully, this book will help explain some of why music fans of the rock 'n' roll era and beyond care so much about music. The singles included are not listed in any kind of charts format, nor is it a list of singles you must hear before you die. Many of the singles included here were not the biggest-selling records of the year of their release. However, all of them are considered important milestones in the history of popular music, and all meant something to the writers who've chosen to highlight them. The singles included in this book add up to a short history of popular music as viewed from the hip side. There are major, mainstream hits in here, but equally there are the marginal but inspirational singles which never sold in any significant number outside of the home state of the record label who released it. There are no wilfully obscure singles to be found in this book, although there are some arguably perverse choices for 'Single of the year'. Who'd agree that 'My Boy Lollipop' deserves the accolade for 1964 ahead of 'A Hard Day's Night?'

Prepare to be intrigued, amazed, possibly irritated -- but always inspired to search out copies of each single in order to hear the magical sounds of each year between 1949 and 1999.

A Bird in the Hand

This book is a brief look into the world of Terry Everitt as a Wildlife Artist - or Bird Carver as he'd rather be known. It describes the strong feelings he has about both the good and the bad of inheriting a talent and how it's affected his life over the last 40 years or so. It traces the path from his earlier years drawing and painting birds, then changing his tools and medium to reach where he is today as a carver.

Terry briefly covers the evolution he went through with variations in the design of his unique "Naturebox" before specialising in the product that he crafts nowadays. He includes a short, but nevertheless, easy to follow "work in progress" piece which details the process of carving birds from wood.

If you are an experienced wildlife wood carver already or have always hankered over picking up some sharp instruments, Terry's book will inspire you. It's a great hobby to have.

Vlad the Impaler: Son of Dracul

Hitler's Holocaust killed approximately 10% of Germany's people, while some estimates claim that Vlad exterminated more than 20% of his fellow Wallachians. A gruesome genre-bender with perverse humor, based on 15th-century history. Warning: graphic transgressive violence.

The Truth about Tattoos

The book of Leviticus includes a prohibition against Tattoos (& cutting, mutilation), which is often not well-understood or observed. There's a natural/historical context, such as it's association with Slavery and Baal worship; but also a spiritual context, involving blood covenants and supernatural laws. That side is related to the Deliverance ministry (commonly known as Exorcism) - one of the 3 parts of the Great Commission, which all believers are entrusted with.

"How many know someone who's had a tattoo or got one? It's a growing phenomena now, people getting tattoos, a tremendous increase in that has taken place since the '70s, a huge increase. You see it everywhere, and think: is there anything to it? God looks on the inside, man looks on the outside, so let's not worry or sweat about it? I believe we need to understand what lies behind these things, and I'm going to show you why this is so important."

Keywords: Tatoo, tattoo, tattoos, tatoos,Tattooing, slavery, Leviticus, Occult, Baal , Canaan, ink, flesh, cutting, self-mutilation, covenant, blood, soul tie, piercing, fertility, Jews, Nazi, World of Warcraft, drugs, stamping, circumcision, sorcery

Nixon and the Silver Screen (Chicago Shorts)

Richard Nixon and the film industry arrived in Southern California in the same year, 1913. In Nixon and the Silver Screen, Mark Feeney offers a new and often revelatory way of thinking about one of our most controversial presidents: by looking not just at Nixon's career--but Hollywood's. Nixon viewed more movies while in office than any other president, and Feeney argues that Nixon's story, both in politics and in his personal life, is nothing if not quintessentially American. Bearing in mind the events that shaped his presidency from 1969 to 1974, Feeney sees aspects of Nixon's character--and the nation's--refracted and reimagined in the more than 500 films Nixon watched during his tenure in the White House. The verdict? Nixon's legacy, for better or worse, is forever representative of the "Silver Age" in Hollywood, shaping and being shaped by that flickering silver screen.

And get ready for hard-core fishing, folks, because fishing's not for wimps:

"Dripping piteously, the fishers reached the foot of the trail and took a minute to gaze up the steep, switchbacked path, the shadows already growing long around them. Crying seemed a viable option...."

It's Alive!: The Science of B-Movie Monsters (Chicago Shorts)



The B-movie monster--be it gap-toothed gorilla, ripped-from-time dinosaur, overstretched arachnid, or another outrageous anthropomorphic fantasy--has thrilled moviegoers for decades, and firmly sunk its claws into popular culture. In It's Alive!, Michael LaBarbera delves into the science behind these characters' construction, from the biology surrounding tyrannosaurid postures in Jurassic Park and King Kong to the questionable physics employed by The Incredible Shrinking Man. Accompanied by a treasure trove of images from old movie posters and stills, and ranging from the 1930s to such recent films as The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the latest installments of the Alien franchise, It's Alive! cleverly uses science to remind us that the best parts of moviemaking might indeed be magic-for all creatures, great and small.

Ebert's Bests (Chicago Shorts)

Roger Ebert is a name synonymous with the movies. In Ebert's Bests, he takes readers through the journey of how he became a film critic, from his days at a student-run cinema club to his rise as a television commentator in At the Movies and Siskel & Ebert. Recounting the influence of the French New Wave, his friendships with Werner Herzog and Martin Scorsese, as well as travels to Sweden and Rome to visit Ingrid Bergman and Federico Fellini, Ebert never loses sight of film as a key component of our cultural identity. In considering the ethics of film criticism--why we should take all film seriously, without prejudgment or condescension--he argues that film critics ought always to engage in open-minded dialogue with a movie. Extending this to his accompanying selection of "10 Bests," he reminds us that hearts and minds--and even rankings--are bound to change.

From consumer products to architecture to advertising to digital technology, design is an undeniably global phenomenon.

Are You Just Braaaiiinnnsss or Something More?: A Pre-release Sample Chapter from The Walking Dead and Philosophy: v. 1

In Are You Just Braaaiiinnnsss or Something More?, British Columbia-based philosopher Gordon Hawkes compares the zombies of The Walking Dead with the zombies philosophers argue about. Debate about whether zombies could possibly exist has been a hot topic in philosophy of mind over the last thirty years, though as Hawkes points out, these are not quite the same as the walkers in Robert Kirkman's epic tale. Philosophical zombies, or P-zombies for short, are beings who look and behave exactly like humans but have no inner mental life?no consciousness. Philosophers have lined up on both sides of this disputed proposition, and no agreement is yet in sight. A related question is how much consciousness is possessed by the walkers of The Walking Dead, and whether these shambling walkers are entitled to any moral consideration. Hawkes's piece is one of twenty chapters in The Walking Dead and Philosophy, edited by Wayne Yuen, in which philosophers draw fascinating and disturbing conclusions from The Walking Dead comics and TV show. The Walking Dead and Philosophy explores not only the nature of zombies, but the nature of human society as revealed by the impact of a zombie apocalypse.

Battlelines: Road to Gettysburg: Civil War Combat Artists and the Pictures They Drew

What did a battle during the Civil War look like?

We have no photographs of Civil War battles because photography had no advanced to where it could stop that kind of action.

But we can get a good idea of what the battles were like from the courageous -- and sometimes reckless -- combat artists from contemporary publications who took to the field and attached themselves to the armies.

Sadly, the work of these men has been largely ignored. Happily, many of their original drawings still exist.

This series of the work of the Civil War combat artists will show you scenes, places and fighting men that you have never seen before -- largely because many of the works in these volumes have remained unpublished even after more than 150 years.

In this volume, you will meet Alfred Waud and Edwin Forbes, the two artists who were with the Union's Army of the Potomac during those fateful days leading up to the battle of Gettysburg, one of the largest and most important engagements of the war.

King In the Mirror: The Reflection of Michael Jackson Vol.1

Later, he made Thriller, the highest selling album on the planet. His music crossed all borders, achieving many unprecedented feats one after the other. This book is a fictionalized true story, a type of self-help book, and aims to discover truths about our own life from that of the legendary King of Pop, Michael Jackson. This work is the first half of a book originally published by PHP Institute in Japan in 2010 and rewritten for English readers in 2012. This made-in-Japan content belongs to the BBB: Breakthrough Bandwagon Books.

Ten Thousand Spirals

For the past two years I've helped Steve Young research and write his life story for his family. I asked him if I could post an excerpt. This is from a chapter called, "Ten Thousand Spirals." -Jeff Benedict

Tim on Broadway: Season One

Get your FREE copy of the book that hit # 1 in Kindle Short Reads for gay fiction.

>>>>"You don't have to be a Broadway fan (or gay) to appreciate this work..."

Carolyn Sohier, the Greta Garbo of divas, is giving a once in a lifetime concert that Tim can't afford to attend. Tim--an overweight, twenty-something virgin--regrets lending the hunky bag boy at the grocery store money that could have bought him a ticket. Tim needs to call in his debts, but money isn't the only thing holding him back.

>>>> Here's what readers are saying about Tim on Broadway...

"You should read Tim On Broadway, Season One, Episode One. It will hook you in, and then you too will be tapping your toes.""It's one of the best novels I've read in a very long time.""[It's] a romantic tale of someone's self-discovery.""It's among the best that I've read in a while, and what a nice reward for those of us who spend a lot of time searching for something worthwhile."

The first time Tim met Javier, he was blown away by the attention. As an overweight, twenty-something virgin, he didn't often--actually ever--get a guy, let alone a hot one, pay attention to him. The problem, Javier is straight; yet he gives Tim mixed messages. Tim can't get Javier off his mind, unless he is pursuing his love for theater--or talking with his best friend, Julia, about the "unattainable" crushes they share on some of the guys back home in Salem, Massachusetts.

With the Carolyn Sohier concert fasting approaching, Tim struggles to get tickets. If he hadn't lent Javier the money to, well, have his way with him in the beer cooler at the store they worked at together, maybe Tim wouldn't have lost his job, and would be able to see Carolyn perform. But Tim's learned his lesson from all this...or so he thinks.

>>>> You'll love this book because...

You'll laugh so hard, you'll want to manscape too. (Don't know what manscaping is? Just think razor...private parts. Oh, we can't give the theatrics away!)Tim's quirky ways are adorable, loving and funny as hell.Sitting down on an automatic-flushing toilet will never be the same again for you.At first, you might think Javier's a jerk but then... (OK, we can't ruin it!)The theatrical moments will floor you.There's even a touch of the paranormal in Tim's journey of personal growth and self-discovery.Like Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand or Bette Midler? What about Betty Buckley and other Broadway actresses? Carolyn Sohier can sing circles around them.You will sniffle with the tissue box beside you, cheer at the ending and long for the next season.

Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in the Digital Age

Wayne Clough, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, asks "How can we prepare ourselves to reach the generation of digital natives who bring a huge appetite--and aptitude--for the digital world?" He explains how the Smithsonian is tackling this issue in Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in a Digital Age.

Libraries and archives have already made many documents available through the Internet. The digital world presents a bigger challenge for museums; producing images of 3D objects is more complicated, and collections are built with exhibitions in mind rather than open access on computers.

In 2009, the Smithsonian began digitizing its vast collections to make them accessible to the millions of people who do not visit the museums in person. "Digital access can provide limitless opportunities for engagement and lifelong learning." Clough sees museums gradually moving beyond showcasing collections to engaging the public online so "visitors" can access the objects they find most interesting.

Education has always been at the core of the Smithsonian. Today, the Smithsonian offers materials and lesson plans that meet state standards for K-12 curricula; online summits on many diverse subjects; the Collections Search Center website; and apps. The Smithsonian's website, www.seriouslyamazing.com, draws people in with fun questions and then takes them deeper into the subject. The question "What European colonizer is still invading the U.S. today?" reveals not only the answer--earthworms--but also in-depth info on worms from environmental researchers.

Clough concludes with this thought: "While digital technology poses great challenges, it also offers great possibilities."

HANDS: Gift of a Generation

Hands: Gift of a Generation is a book born from the multi-sensory exhibition of the same name by the Singapore Memory project (SMP) held between August and October 2013 at the National Library in Singapore. Comprising 45 individual profiles, each accompanied by a striking photograph, this book is a valuable collection of stories that reflects the transformation of Singapore through the years. These anecdotes encapsulate a diverse cross-section of everyday Singaporeans, each connected through their unique experiences and perspectives of Singapore.

Reflecting this diversity, the book contains 10 translated profiles in each of Singapore's mother-tongue languages of Chinese, Malay and Tamil.

About the photographer

Sean Lee is a teller of short stories through his photographs. He was a winner of the 2011 ICON de Martell Cordon Bleu and a member of the Reflexions Masterclass (2011-2013). His work has been exhibited all over the world.

Tarnished: The True Cost of Gold

Tarnished: The True Cost of Gold tells the stories of those who mine the gold, the risks they take and the dangers they face: from injury and drowning to mercury poisoning and lung damage. Here are portraits of people whose way of life is threatened and who now are fighting back--a miner who calls for fair trade and fair mine certification, "a modern-minded mayor who takes a stand against modern mining," a Romanian farmer-philosopher.

Children as young as four haul buckets of water and smash boulders. Activist farmers stage roadblocks to protest the foreign takeover of a local mine. Indigenous peoples are displaced and environments despoiled. All of this in the service of gold--the lustrous, coveted symbol of wealth that is too often borne of poverty, danger and disease.

Eleven journalists traveled to 10 countries, from Peru to the Philippines, to tell these stories. Their work combines first-rate reporting, vivid imagery and video, previously published by the Pulitzer Center, an innovative non-profit that supports international journalism.

Isolation Is Overrated - 8 Steps to Stress-Free Living With Roommates

Ask anyone that's ever lived with roommates if they have any horror stories, and they'll likely have their fair share.

We've all got a horror story or two - from moving in with friends or relatives, to sharing an apartment with people that started out as complete strangers, there always seemed to be some level of craziness that we found ourselves living with at one point or another.

The main reason why I wrote this eBook is because I know that a great many of the bad experiences people have had while living with roommates could have easily been avoided had they just done some things a little differently. Just in the small ways we interact (or don't interact) with the people we live with can, many times, be the very root of all those roommate horror stories we've come away with.

So like most bad experiences in life, we can learn new ways and ideas on how to deal with them or even prevent them from happening again. That's what we're going to do here.

Magic of Colors

Inspiration for this book was the Colombian fashion designer Adriana Santacruz, who was chosen to be Colombian fashion Ambassadeur and is representing her country at the Paris Fashion Week 2014.

James Bond à la OSS 117: A Laugh A Minute! (Steve's LOL! Book 3)

Here's a fun article on two obscure but hilarious movies that go into my personal list of Cult Classics.

Selling Your Film Outside the U.S.: Digital Distribution in Europe

This is the second volume in the "Selling Your Film" case study book series. While our first book, Selling Your Film Without Selling Your Soul, focused on U.S releases and case studies, Selling Your Film Outside the U.S. takes a deep dive into digital distribution (and distribution generally) in Europe and provides several case studies of films released there.

The series began in 2011 as an attempt to encourage transparency in an industry that has always been quite reluctant to do so. Three years later, we are proud to have led the charge towards this goal, and we are encouraged that others are embarking on other projects that attempt to do the same.

Within the pages of this book, you will find marketing and crowdfunding strategies, real distribution budgets, community building activities and detailed ancillary and digital distribution revenues for independently produced films.

By stripping away the mythology surrounding independent film distribution, we aim to present a more realistic picture regarding how filmmakers can earn revenue--and when they cannot--from a variety of release strategies. While there is no one model that will work for a particular film, the books in this series highlight a multitude of new techniques filmmakers are using to directly connect their films with audiences, effectively reach them through the power of the global Internet, and build a sustainable fan base to last throughout a career.?

One of the chapters in this book employs the phrase "Carpe Diem." In the context of digital distribution, this has dual meaning. First, in a harsh world that can tire of one thing and move onto the next in the blink of an eye, we encourage filmmakers to jump into action and formulate a viable and expedient distribution strategy as their films move from the festival circuit onto a larger arena. Second, the digital distribution space is a constantly changing one, where platforms come and go at an astonishing rate. Therefore, it is important that filmmakers not only empower themselves by learning how to navigate the landscape of digital distribution, but by keeping this knowledge up to date as well.

To that aim, we offer Selling Your Film Outside the U.S.--containing chapters by The Film Collaborative co-executive directors Orly Ravid and Jeffrey Winter, marketing strategist and social media expert Sheri Chandler, filmmaker, author and media strategist Jon Reiss, and Wendy Bernfeld, managing director of the European content curation and licensing company Rights Stuff BV.--as the starting point for any filmmaker (whether they are U.S.-based or not) who wishes to explore distributing their film in Europe.

Strategic investment of embodied energy during the architectural planning process

This year's fifth issue of A+BE outlines the relevance of the building substance as factor for the overall sustainable performance of the built environment. It wants to sensibilize the designer for the ecological dimension of planning decisions and to show how to optimize them. Design and construction of buildings include harvesting resources and producing emissions and stating a burden to nature. This can be perceived equivalent to a financial investment where the monetary value has to express adequately the real one. The planning decision has an ecological value which must justify its relevance by function and has to be optimized within its scope. Environmental impact and desired building quality must be alanced in order to establish a sustainable solution. All means to optimize need to be evaluated. In order to do so the designer needs to be aware of his impact and has to strategically invest embodied energy during the architectural planning process.

Painting China Now: Artists' Book: Painting China Now (MAM - Museum of Modern Art – Rio de Janeiro – Brasil) by Brody & Paetau

This is an "artists' eBook" made in parallel to the exhibition of Ondrej Brody & Kristofer Paetau at the MAM - Museum of Modern Art - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This eBook is not an exhibition catalogue - it is an independent work: a collaboration between the artists and the curator of the exhibition, Luiz Camillo Osorio who wrote the text of this book to accompany details of the 30 paintings commissioned in China by Ondrej Brody & Kristofer Paetau (an installation of 30 paintings in oil on canvas - 30 x 40 cm - which can be presented in different ways, according to the space). At the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, the installation was accompanied by the text of the curator and formed a layout.

An Independent Author’s Checklist: What You Need to Have Ready for Ghostwriters, Editors, and Graphic Designers (Free Gifts for Indie Authors Book 1)

As an independent author (a.k.a. "indie author"), you are the project manager of your own book's production from start to finish, from conception straight through to publication. This may include hiring a freelance ghostwriter (if you choose not to write your book yourself), an experienced editor, and even a professional graphic designer for best results. It all depends on the type of book an indie author wishes to produce.

For example, there are different components involved with designing a paperback book than an ebook of any kind; and there are even more components to consider if that indie author wishes to publish and print a hardcover book. An Independent Author's Checklist includes an important list of questions indie authors will want to answer for a graphic designer, ahead of time, to ensure the book is completed properly and professionally the first time around. This type of preparation can save time and money for both project stakeholders because it can prevent complete do-overs in cases where the designer was unclear about the indie author's original vision.

Communication is so important throughout this process--not only with your graphic designer. An indie author will also want to have certain things prepared ahead of time, in certain ways, for both the ghostwriter (if applicable) and the editor. As such, it's often helpful to have a checklist at your disposal that makes this entire process run as smoothly as possible--particularly for the indie authors who are new to the whole publishing business. That's why I created An Independent Author's Checklist and decided to publish it online for indie authors everywhere. I want you all to have as much helpful information as possible at your fingertips, so you all have a positive publishing experience coupled with the best possible chances of success. That is my wish for you.

An Independent Author's Checklist includes helpful information for indie authors regarding effectively communicating your book's vision to a ghostwriter. Although some indie authors are both qualified and have the time to write their own books, you might choose to hire someone else to help you create that compelling narrative. Both are acceptable ways to produce a book. That said, when hiring a ghostwriter to help pen your book, it is important for indie authors to remember that ghostwriting is an ongoing, collaborative process (much like the entire publishing process). To make things run smoother, you should be prepared ahead of time.

An Independent Author's Checklist also includes important guidance for indie authors regarding how to submit one's manuscript to an editor so that it contains all the information you want edited. For example, some indie authors will only have the main body of their book interiors professionally edited. In that case, often any front matter, back matter, and back cover copy that is added after the fact is riddled with all kinds of spelling errors and typos, diminishing the professional quality of the book. But for indie authors like you who follow the guidelines in this checklist, you'll avoid these issues and end up with the best possible result.

The White Slave

The young filmmaker Rene Daalder and the architecture student Rem Koolhaas wrote the screenplay to Daalder's 1969 film De blanke slavin (The White Slave) in 1967/68. Taking inspiration from B-movies and Luis Bunuel, it is a hall of mirrors that toys with cliches and inverts them into campy provocations. A few years after the Eichmann trial, a man named Gunther Unrat arrives in the Netherlands looking for "good Germans" who helped fight the Nazi occupation. He quickly gets mixed up in a nefarious organization that inspires him to follow in the footsteps of the consummate "good German" Albert Schweitzer by setting up a camp for young Dutch women who think they are training to work in Africa as nurses. Blinded by idealism, he fails to see that his shady partners are scheming to sell them into sexual slavery. The screenplay soon develops into an absurd morality play, challenging all notions of political correctness, then and now. It has been translated from the Dutch by Laura Martz, while Rene Daalder has contributed a preface about the origins and background of the film.

Ground Level Modena. A New Look to an Ancient Italian Town

You can observe and understand a town from its ground side, with a look that rarely rises above one meter above the pavement level; in this case, the ancient town of Modena is interpreted through its rain-pipes, garbage bins, crusts on the walls, and so on. A small parade of "useless" details which are mostly destined to disappear; but for a few months - or several years - they have given their small seal to our daily lives, far from official monuments. Fifty-seven pictures in a passionate (and anything but technical) research on colours, rather than on forms.

AC/E Digital Culture Annual Report 2014: Focus 2014: The Use of New Technologies in the Performing Arts (Anuario ACE)

The AC/E Digital Culture Annual Report aims to become an annual document of reference that analyses the evolution of digital trends in the cultural sector (museums, libraries, publishing companies, booksellers, theatre companies, film production, music companies, etc.)

It is designed to be a manual for constant reference and consultation for cultural sector professionals wishing to discover the advantages & benefits derived from the use of new technologies.

The first report, coordinated by Javier Celaya of Dosdoce.com, analyses the impact of the Internet in the overall cultural sector, as well as it provides a specific focus on the use of new technologies in the performing arts (production, promotion, staging, distribution, etc.). Each year, the report will focus on a specific area of the cultural sector.

The aim of the study is to exchange knowledge by identifying cases of success and good practices at both the national and international levels in order to enhance performing arts professionals' awareness of the possibilities new technologies can offer their entities and also of the digital trends they will need to bear in mind in the coming years. In this regard, the report is much more than just an initial compilation of the statistical data needed to establish the point of departure and current use of different types of technology.

This study involves preliminary research and is open to the participation of any cultural entity wishing to contribute its experience and present cases of good practice and success in the use of different types of technology applied to the performing arts.

Renewing City Renewal: A call for strong design

Between 1970 and 1990 the prewar districts of Dutch cities underwent an unparalleled process of renewal. What began as 'building for the neighbourhood' in protest against extensive demolition has now come to be known as 'city renewal'. Large numbers of affordable dwellings and social facilities were created. However, businesses often disappeared, the quality of public space did not always improve and districts sometimes became isolated from the rest of the city. Since 1990 some of the old city renewal districts have taken off again and become popular (and expensive) housing districts. But others still have problems despite the renewal.

The design studies in this book show how economic activity, infrastructure and public space can be the keys to new strategies for improving city districts. Four 'problem districts' have been chosen as testing grounds: Leiden's Havenkwartier, The Hague's Schilderswijk, Rotterdam's Feijenoord and Amsterdam's Indische Buurt. Three essays describe the history of city renewal, the future of urban renewal and the role of spatial design in changing the existing city. The book ends with a call for meaningful new roles and instruments for architects and urban designers at a time when large-scale urban development has come to a standstill.

Spiral Jetta Summer: Swimming in the Great Salt Lake (Chicago Shorts)



Erin Hogan hit the road in her Volkswagen Jetta and headed west from Chicago in search of the monuments of American land art: a salty coil of rocks, four hundred stainless steel poles, a gash in a mesa, four concrete tubes, and military sheds filled with cubes. Her completed journey took her through the states of Utah, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas. It also took her through the states of anxiety, drunkenness, disorientation, and heat exhaustion. Spiral Jetta Summer is a chronicle of this adventure, and it reveals Hogan's unpretentious and boisterous narrative flair on the roads of middle-of-nowhere Utah in pursuit of Robert Smithson's classic work Spiral Jetty. Along the way, Hogan writes about venturing outside of her urban comfort zone; who she encounters; and most importantly, how she found most of what she was looking for and then some.

Arizona Impressions - An Impressionistic Photography Study (Art Book 1)

Approximately 65 pages with about 60 color images - this book is entirely pictorial.

From the first instant that I saw the work of Monet and Renoir in an art galley decades ago I was astonished and admired the work so intently that I resolved to create some images that would at least attempt the world of impressionism even though I must describe myself as much more of an 'Ansel Adams' acolyte. The following images are the result. For those who are interested in such things, all the images contained herein were taken with a wide variety of cameras ranging from a Nikon F3 35mm film camera through a Nikon D300 digital.

The author began photography and photo-journalism in early 1963 when he accepted an offer from his local newspaper to write about and photograph sports events at the Arizona high school where he was a junior. After a stint in the service, he had an opportunity to study photography and printing techniques with Bernard Hoffman, a true gentleman and scholar, and one of the earliest staff photographers for Life Magazine.

Since that time he has had thousands of photographs and hundreds of articles published by more than 60 national and international periodicals. He was also a contributing editor for one of them for more than ten years. Topics ran the gamut from professional sports, medicine, archeology, and photography to science.

After twenty years away from Arizona he returned in 1985 and it has been the base from which all his photographic excursions are launched. Along with many others he has embraced digital photography but can still be seen, from time to time, peering through the ground glass of a large format camera, hoisting a large medium format 6x7, or indeed still using a 35mm film camera.

The photographer currently has fine art photography on exhibit at The Center for Fine Arts in Globe, Arizona, and is currently represented by more than ten stock photo agencies where he has more than 13,000 photographs available for commercial use.

Pompeii and Da Vinci

Curious about the time-capsule of secrets that had been hidden at Pompeii? The initials of 'SC' in its various forms had been found all over the artifacts and architecture of Pompeii, Italy--which had been buried under volcanic pumice for almost two thousand years. We see a time-capsule snapshot of the 'SC' there. We had found the same 'SC' in Leonardo Da Vinci's works. Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a journey through the basics of the Philosophers' Stone. Utilizing an extravaganza of vibrant illustrations from history's most eminent artists, this book first highlights the fine points of the fundamentals and then acquaints the readers with the history and overall canons of the Philosophers' Stone. The readers embark upon a tour through widely varying perspectives on the concept of the 'SC' initials and its manifestations. Readers will then explore the intricacies of the Art of alchemy, but what is even more important--by carefully piecing together the scattered clues, they will be brought nearer to the closely guarded message hidden deep inside the deliberately obscured texts. There is a message hidden in the picture word puzzles. Only this author exposes the true intent of the ancient alchemists, fishing out the actual concealed message from the muddy pond of hints and innuendo. The Art had been used for a very specific purpose--and readers are guaranteed to be surprised with the deciphered end result. This book is a fast paced thriller that decrypts real clues in the artwork and riddles of the Masters. Upending the apple cart on what should be found within the alchemy riddles, the author has ferreted the secret message out from the picture word puzzles. The message isn't what anyone expected. In effect, the end result creates a paradigm shift on how these ancient works should be considered. Surprisingly, there had been hidden secrets in the artwork related to the concept of the 'SC' initials and its various manifestations.
