The world is witnessing a media revolution similar to the birth of the film industry from the early 20th Century. New forms of media are expanding the human experience from passive viewership to active participants, surrounding and enveloping us in ways film or television never could. New immersive media forms include virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (XR), fulldome, CAVEs, holographic characters, projection mapping, and mixed experimental combinations of old and new, live, and generated media. With the continued expansion beyond the traditional frame, practitioners are crafting these new media to see how they can influence and shape the world. The Handbook of Research on the Global Impacts and Roles of Immersive Media is a collection of innovative research that provides insights on the latest in existing and emerging immersive technologies through descriptions of case studies, new business models, philosophical viewpoints, and scientific findings. While highlighting topics including augmented reality, interactive media, and spatial computing, this book is ideally designed for media technologists, storytellers, artists, journalists, designers, programmers, developers, manufacturers, entertainment executives, content creators, industry professionals, academicians, researchers, and media students.

Most of us like to look at them, but why on earth would anyone want to eat them? As Constance L. Kirker and Mary Newman show in this book, however, flowers have a long history as a tasty ingredient in a variety of cuisines. The Greeks, Romans, Persians, Ottomans, Mayans, Chinese, and Indians all knew how to cook with them for centuries, and today contemporary chefs use them to add something special to their dishes. Edible Flowers is the fascinating history of how flowers have been used in cooking, from ancient Greek dishes to the today’s molecular gastronomy and farm-to-table restaurants. Looking at flowers’ natural qualities: their unique and beautiful appearance, their pungent fragrance, and their surprisingly good taste, Kirker and Newman proffer a bouquet of dishes—from soups to stews to desserts to beverages—that use them in interesting ways. Tying this culinary history into a larger cultural one, they show how flowers’ cultural, symbolic, and religious connotations have added value and meaning to dishes in daily life and special occasions. From fried squash blossoms to marigold dressings, this book rediscovers the flower not just as something beautiful but as something absolutely delicious.

The Fire House is a work of fiction; that must be made clear from the beginning. It is ghost story in the traditional sense of the word and yes, it centres on a haunted house. However, what makes this story so chillingly unique is the fact that it is based on actual events. Those events took place back in 1979 and for several dark months they brought utter devastation to an unassuming young family whose dreams and prospects of a perfect life were terrifyingly shattered. I make no secret of the fact that I have had a life-long interest in supernatural phenomena and during thirty years of open-minded research I have met many interesting and enigmatic people, none more so than the man I have characterised in The Fire House as Markos. He was a spiritualist medium and his 'gift' as he called it was in my opinion truly miraculous. He shared his gift freely with others and he brought lasting peace to countless ordinary folk. It was my good fortune to meet him in 1984 and I suppose it was inevitable that our shared interests would ensure that we soon became firm friends. Markos passed over into the spirit world he so often communicated with seven years ago and his passing left a void in my life that will never be filled. The Fire House is my tiny homage to him and others like him throughout the world who open themselves up to the derision of sceptics and selflessly use their gifts to bring comfort and hope to the hearts and minds of troubled people. The facts behind the ghost story you are about to read proved to me beyond any reasonable doubt that just as there are angels, there are also such things as malevolent spirits and of their evil powers we have no real comprehension.until now.

Scientists have long known that chemical communication via pheromones is a powerful influence on how animals develop, mate, bond, and nurture their offspring. Human animals are no exception. Pheromones, explain the authors, alter hormone levels, can accelerate puberty, control women's menstrual cycles, influence our choice in a mate, and even influence our sexual orientation. They help us tell lovers and family members from strangers and are essential to the mother-infant bond. Pheromones influence how often we have sex, and with whom. They influence how the brain develops, what we remember, and how we learn. Grounded in solid scientific research, yet maintaining an easy-to-read style, The Scent of Eros is an engrossing read about a whole new world under our noses! Kohl and Francoeur show the pathway from social-environmental sensory input to the hormones that influence our behavior, especially our sexual behavior. The authors suggest and show that pheromones are the primary link between the nature and the nurture of human sexuality.
