Picture Perfect: Life in the Age of the Photo Op (New Edition)

Picture Perfect: Life in the Age of the Photo Op
Princeton Univ Pr | Englisch | Pages: 288 | 2008 | ISBN 069112440X | PDF | 1 MB

In this engrossing analysis of modern imagery, Adatto chronicles the rise of America's photo-op culture and the explosion of social networking sites, image-conscious photography and the guerrilla war between gaffe-seeking journalists and self-aware politicians. Average citizens are bombarded with so many sleek and produced images a day, they've lost track of authenticity, according to Adatto. Paying particular attention to the photo op's political influence, she compares coverage of the 1968 campaign between Nixon, Humphrey and Wallace with the showdown between Dukakis and Bush in 1988, demonstrating how, in a mere 20 years, photo-ops and sound bites had transformed news.
Weirdos in the Workplace: The New Normal--Thriving in the Age of the Individual

Weirdos in the Workplace: The New Normal–Thriving in the Age of the Individual
John Putzier | ISBN: 0131478990 | PDF | 220 pages | English | 7 MB

Consultant Putzier begins his foray into the work world of high performers with "There is always a talent shortage." His point? That corporations today must accept the so-called weirdos for their contributions, after distinguishing whether they're truly adding value or simply are annoying and irritating. The tools he uses to measure his contention include behavioral and organizational change maps and step-by-step Venn diagrams with a path led by answers to specific questions. Before explaining the techniques, though, he spends good space describing and analyzing 32 different kinds of weirdos, from Circadian Charlie to System Tester Sam. He also delves into the emotional and mental composition of high performers, from their need for workplace flexibility and new technology to their responses to out-of-the-ordinary incentives and to risk and bureaucracy. The bottom line is his fervent belief that, without a good understanding and toleration of the weirdos (aka Albert Einstein, among others), this planet will be a much less productive and innovative place in which to work and live.

Eng | RS & MU | CBR & CBZ | Marvel Comics | 120 MB Total

is a 6-part limited series published by Marvel from September 2008 through March 2009. It delves into the history of the Sentry, a unique Marvel character who has the power of a million exploding suns but whose memory and his interactions with the other Marvel superheroes were removed from the collective consciousness of the entire world, and presents such history in a unique fashion: a “classic silver-age" tale at the birth of the Marvel Age. The Sentry was first introduced in his eponymous 2000 miniseries (Sep. 2000) and was created by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee. In this latest iteration, created by Jeff Parker, Nick Dragotta and Paul Tobin, Marvel brings an old-style comics feel complete with covers with text bursts, two stories per issue (of equal length with the exception of issue #6) and old-style editorials and letters pages.
The Age of Abundance: How Prosperity Transformed America's Politics and Culture

The Age of Abundance: How Prosperity Transformed America's Politics and Culture by Brink Lindsey
Collins Business | Pages: 400 | Date: 2008-08-01 | ISBN: 0060747676 | PDF | 1,18MB

Until the 1950s, the struggle to feed, clothe, and employ the nation drove most of American political life. From slavery to the New Deal, political parties organized around economic interests and engaged in fervent debate over the best allocation of agonizingly scarce resources. But with the explosion of the nation's economy in the years after World War II, a new set of needs began to emerge—a search for meaning and self-expression on one side, and a quest for stability and a return to traditional values on the other.In The Age of Abundance, Brink Lindsey offers a bold reinterpretation of the latter half of the twentieth century. In this sweeping history of postwar America, the tumult of racial and gender politics, the rise of the counterculture, and the conservative revolution of the 1980s and 1990s are portrayed in an entirely new light. Readers will learn how and why the contemporary ideologies of left and right emerged in response to the novel challenges of mass prosperity.

Over four million Vietnamese died in what one side calls the American War and the other side calls the Vietnam War. A war so brutal, that it has been described as their 'own' Third World War by the Vietnamese. In this rare instance, it is those who lost the war that have almost exclusively written its history. Whilst countless stories have been told from the American point of view, most often reducing the Vietnamese to faceless shadows very little has been heard from the other side. The official Vietnamese line meanwhile continues to issue purely one dimensional propaganda. The Face of the Enemy is a unique documentary, in that it tells the story of the Vietnamese that fought in "The American" war, in their own words. In the film the veterans have the chance, often for the first time, to recall the experiences that transformed and changed their lives. A film that has inspired the filmmakers is Peter Davis' "Hearts and Minds" from 1975. A documentary, whose truth and relevance has been merely re-strengthened with the passage of time. The title of that film refers to a speech given by Lyndon B. Johnson in which he proclaimed the escalation of the American involvement in the Vietnam War. English subtitles hard coded to the film
