Have you ever wondered if you are really in control of your life? Or could it be that someone or something has been placed in front of a computer somewhere and is pushing buttons and sending messages to your brain? What really influences our daily decisions: friends, family, God, the government perhaps, or a dog? These are the questions Dr. Anthony Harding begins to ask himself shortly after arriving in San Diego. He's convinced that the only way his two daughters will ever overcome their mother's death and the stigma of her alcoholism and drug addiction and the only way to repair his own status as a dead-beat dad is to jump on a job offer that will move them as far away from Chicago's south side as possible. His expectations doesn't include being attracted to a pint-sized independent neighbor from Louisiana whose best friend seems to be a miniature chocolate poodle that appears to have a talent for making unusual things happen.

Digital Darwinism

Digital Darwinism takes a closer look at disruptive thinking to inspire those who want to be the best at digital transformation. Change across business is accelerating, but the lifespan of companies is decreasing as leaders face a growing abundance of decisions to make, data to process and technology that threatens even the most established business models. These forces could destroy your company or, with the right strategy in place, help you transform it into a market leader. Digital Darwinism lends a guiding hand through the turbulence, offering practical strategies while sounding a call to action that lights a fire underneath complacency to inspire creative change. Digital Darwinism shines a light on the future by exploring technology, society and lessons from the past so you can understand how to adapt, what to embrace and what to ignore. Tom Goodwin proves that assumptions the business world has previously made about "digital" are wrong: incremental change isn't good enough, adding technology at the edges won't work and digital isn't a thing - it's everything. If you want your organization to succeed in the post-digital age, you need to be enlightened by Digital Darwinism.

My Back Pages Volume II is a collection of 60 funny, insightful, and often poignant columns penned over the past few years by Daryl Fisher for his hometown newspaper, the West Sacramento News-Ledger. His columns have received statewide attention, including a prestigious Gold Medal Award from the California Newspaper Publishers Association. Fisher's columns talk positively about family, friends, and community, the three things which he believes connect us all and give us the comforting illusion that we are not alone in the world. He writes about the fun and games of raising children, the love of all creatures great and small, politics, and his friends and neighbors. Sometimes a column also becomes a eulogy, a way of saying goodbye to those who have touched and enriched his life. It is one of those rare books that you can pick up, turn to any page, and find yourself there.

Fed up with the high tolls charged by your ordinary telephone service? If you're itching to cut the copper cord with your costly, traditional phone service, you need Talk is Cheap, the new, easy-to-understand guide to understanding and using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and other Internet telephone options. Technologies such as VoIP are gaining a great deal of attention these days as more people switch from standard telephone service to phone service via the Internet. But while the cost savings are outstanding, there are some issues with Internet telephony that you should know about. Are the connections reliable? Is the quality comparable? Will it include 911 services? James Gaskin's Talk is Cheap addresses these issues and many more by explaining how to make the switch and what the tradeoffs will be if you opt for Internet telephony over traditional phone services. Talk is Cheap focuses on the increasingly popular services from Vonage, which uses VoIP, and Skype--a free service that operates as a peer-to-peer (P2P) network with the ability to turn any PC, Mac, or Pocket PC into a telephone. The book explains your options; explores the background behind, the workings of, and differences between VoIP and P2P networks; and discusses the advantages and drawbacks of both technologies (including service offerings, quality, capabilities, completion rates, and more). Talk is Cheap then goes into detail on what you can expect in Internet service from traditional phone companies such as Verizon and AT&T. In addition, you will learn more advanced techniques, including how to turn your Palm or Pocket PC into an Internet phone and how to work with Wi-Fi phones and videophones. A straightforward, quick introduction to the ins and outs of using Internet telephone services, this book provides everything you need to make informed telephone decisions--whether you're thinking about the switch from traditional phone service or have already made it and want to get the most out of your new Internet telephone.

This report concentrates on the issue of whether witnesses have previously misled a select committee of the House of Commons over the extent and knowledge of phone-hacking. The Committee concludes that several individuals misled the Committee in 2009 and more recently, and that the News of the World and News International corporately misled the Committee about the true nature and extent of the internal investigations they carried out into phone-hacking, made statements that were not fully truthful, and withheld documents. The companies' directors - including Rupert Murdoch and James Murdoch - should be prepared to take responsibility for these failings. The Committee reports its findings for the House of Commons to decide whether a contempt has been committed and, if so, what punishment should be imposed.

For the last twenty years of her professional life, Beverly Wilkins has been a grief group facilitator, congregational nurse, and visiting nurse. Her occupation as a trained palliative care nurse brought her into intimate contact with many patients going through their final stage of life. She possesses a serenity and ease of the vocabulary around death and dying because of her complete belief that it really is not the end. In fact, it is more like a birthday following a birthday. We are all born to eventually die to another life, “where there are many mansions. I go and prepare a place for you” (John 14:2 NKJV). This book is a collection of real-life scenarios she has been witness to; she wants to give you calm and peace as you transition to the next stage of light, the only stage that all of us will experience: death. May you feel the promise that God will be there to meet you when you arrive in your new home. No need for angst at the end. Go in peace and live joyously and confidently knowing your final destination is already reserved. Happy birthday as you breathe your last breath. Enjoy the whoosh. Bev
