This is a pocket-sized glimpse into the world of the US president's beloved communications system, without which he is rarely seen and about which the world's press has already devoted numerous column inches. From ex-president GW Bush ('43') asking about lost property, to playing hide and seek with his secret service protection ('Dammit. U guys r good'), to hilarious correspondence with the likes of Tony Blair, the Kasper Hauser comedy group has filtered out the very best of the commander in chief's correspondence for your amusement. OBAMA'S BLACKBERRY will be the perfect gift for fans of clever satire, very silly humour, and anyone who wonders what's really going on inside the Oval Office these days...

Marketing Communications: A Brand Narrative Approach is a mainstream, student-driven text which gives prominence to the driving force of all Marketing Communications: the imperative of Branding. The book aims to engage students in an entertaining, informative way, setting the conceptual mechanics of Marketing Communications in a contemporary, dynamic context. It includes key current trends such as: Brand narrative approach - Cases such as Dove, Harley-Davidson, Nike and World of War Craft feature real-life, salient examples which are engaging for students and reflect the growth of co-authored brand ‘stories’ to help build and maintain brands by customer engagement through meaningful dialogues. Media neutral/multi-media approach - This text has a sound exploration of online and offline synergy combining one-message delivery and multi-media exposures, through examples of companies and political campaigns using ‘non-traditional’ media to reach groups not locking into ‘normal channels’. This brand new text features an impressive mixture of real-life brand case studies underpinned with recent academic research and market place dynamics. The format is structured into three sections covering analysis, planning and implementation and control of Marketing Communications. Using full colour examples of brands, and student-friendly diagrams, the book acknowledges that the modern student learns visually as well as through text.

In recent years we have seen a continuation and perhaps even acceleration in the trend of popular culture having a discernible effect on politics. From The Daily Show to candidates’ use of Facebook and MySpace, politics have opened up to new technologies as we come online for the next generation. Our political world has become popularized, or our popular world has become politicized in a new way, facilitated by the entertainment media and new technologies. This volume’s authors attempt to make sense of the changing political popular world through a series of interdisciplinary essays that explore the ramifications of popular cultural depictions of politics drawing on literature in a variety of fields: political science, history, literature, fine arts and communications. We explore three major phenomena in a politicized popular culture. First, we explore the role that the entertainment media play in understanding politics. What is interesting about our fictional political worlds is we are allowed, as a people, to consider different political ideals without the baggage of our last vote or our ideology. We can step outside ourselves and challenge the way we think on particular issues. Second, we explore the real world of politics as it has been shaped over the last century of new technology. As powerful a medium television proved to be to politics, the latest technological breakthroughs have proved to be a paradigmatic shift. From Twitter to Facebook, our politicians are able to keep in almost constant contact with their constituencies, which has vast implications for the way political discourse will progress. Third, we explore what happens when the real world and media collide. Entertainment media change their messages when major political events happen such as the case when spymaster tropes were forced to evolve when 9/11 changed the international dynamic. Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series had to be conceptualized on film in a new way after this event. The more connected our political world and our popular world become, and given the trends, we can only assume they will become increasingly intertwined, the more important it is for us to understand how these connections affect the world. This volume is a powerful pass at comprehending all that is happening across the politicized popular world.

The tenth anniversary edition of the international bestseller with an updated introduction by Naomi Klein. In the last decade No Logo has become an international phenomenon. Equal parts journalistic expose, mall-rat memoir, and political and cultural analysis, it vividly documents the invasive economic practices and damaging social effects of the ruthless corporatism that characterizes many of our powerful institutions. As the world faces another depression, Naomi Klein's analysis of the branded world we all live in proves not only astonishingly prescient but more vital and timely than ever. No Logo became "the movement bible" that put the new grassroots resistance to corporate manipulation into clear perspective. It tells a story of rebellious rage and self-determination in the face of our branded world, calling for a more just, sustainable economic model and a new kind of proactive internationalism. Since her book The Shock Doctrine was published last year, Klein, now thirty-eight, has become the most visible and influential figure on the American left-what Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky were thirty years ago.

It doesn’t take days or weeks or months to read a book. It takes hours. READ MORE explains how. Most people readily admit that reading books is beneficial, and wish they could read a bit more, and in some cases, a lot more. But most people also have what seem like perfectly valid excuses for not reading, chief among which are lack of time, work-load and responsibility. Yes, they all seem perfectly understandable excuses until you read this book, and discover accounts of people going out of their way to indulge in the habit, from Rudi Giuliani, who, as New York Mayor during 9-11, finally arrived home at past 2 A.M. on the night of that fateful day, and still picked up a book to read; to Barack Obama who went on a one-week vacation in 2010, with over 2,300 pages of reading; to George W. Bush whose formula for reading was to enter into a reading contest with his top presidential aide, Karl Rove. Then there is the challenge of the 99% majority, for whom affordability might also be a ready excuse. Yet, Dr. Ben Carson, today a world-famous neurosurgeon and bestselling author, traces his turnaround to the reading habit instilled in him in fifth grade by his single mother who wasn’t even literate at the time. And there are several other examples. But what of the other 1%, the rich and famous, for whom, time is priceless? Bill Gates as CEO of Microsoft had a Think Week, dedicated to reading. And as Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew took out time to “recharge his batteries” at Harvard. A commitment to a regime of habitual reading takes more than mental conviction. It takes doing. And unlike what most people have come to believe, reading a book doesn’t take days or weeks. It takes hours. This book demonstrates how, and reveals other simple steps that anyone can follow, to develop a life-time habit of enjoyable reading, and reap its rewards.

Ten Letters To Obama

For over a century, the entire world has been fully enshrouded with man's mental acquisitiveness, newfangled hypothesis, and unexplainable apologues, governing the things that actually transpires behind the walls of the White House, and behind the mindset of the President of the United States of America. The world's avid curiosity and educible reconnaissance to know how the President of the United States of America musters the obvious ingenuity and the equanimity to indirectly govern the world, and directly govern the U.S, is quite understandable. Inquiring minds are always eager to comprehend who or what influences, and drives the governance skills and decisions of the U.S President, in as much that they continuously kept putting forward theories of satanism, spiritualism, and other mediums that is hardly conceivable. These ridiculous conceptions had prevailed because those spiritual researchers had never took the time off to examine other seemingly less significant factors that can reasonably influence the most powerful man on earth. But in 2009 when Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States , he allowed the world to understand for the first time, that it is the ordinary American citizen and the ordinary world citizen who serves as the main influencers of many decisions made by the U.S Government. And those influencing factors are derived from the simple lines of the many letters that are addressed to the President every single day, by the ordinary man and woman who had took the time off to walk over to the post office, so that their thoughts can be known. In this book, Notable author, Dennis E. Adonis, tells a chronological story that trails on an actual daily letter ritual that President Barack Obama practices each morning, and one that may seem nonsensical to the untrained mind, but which had given the President a conduit to the root of socio-economic knowledge that is understandably necessary to govern effectively. As such, you are invited to review this letter ritual which had spelt out the faith of many major global events, ranging from the Affordable Healthcare Act, to Bin Laden's death, to the Arab Spring, and Gaddafi's fall. In Essence, these ten associated ritual letters that is within this book, would certainly give you an unprecedented view of what truly drives the decision-making mindset of President Barack Obama.
