Best-selling award-winning author Constance O´ Day-Flannery is the one true Queen of Time Travel Romance. Join her now in a story of a disillusioned young widow who returns to the past, caught, to her horror, in an unflattering lime green bridesmaid´s dress when she meets the man whose love is destined to be hers. Time After Time After existing in a fog since the death of her beloved husband, Kelly Brennan is suddenly ready to take control of her life. Only she didn´t expect her new life to begin in post-Civil War New Orleans. Kelly isn´t sure if she´s losing her mind or just enjoying a really good dream ... one chat comes complete with a man who looks strikingly similar to her late husband. Widower Daniel Gilmore is the epitome of the Southern gentleman: charming, handsome and with a devilish glint in his eye that calls to the dormant heart she´s locked away. In the years since Daniel´s wife passed away he has shuttered himself off from those dearest to him, and not even his precocious daughter Lizzie has been able to draw him out of his misery. But then Lizzie brings home a strange woman in a dreadful gown who speaks about odd things called ´´automobiles´´ and ´´telephones´´ - a woman who bears a remarkable resemblance to his wife. With a daughter in need of a mother and a heart in need of love Daniel yearns to keep Kelly by his side ... provided he can let go of the past long, enough to live in the present and convince Kelly that his present is where she belongs.... 1.

In Kickin´ Cancer´s Butt, Again!, Donna Douglas Walchle shares the details of her journey in a real, raw, and sometimes very humorous way! A masterful storyteller, her life is like a movie in the making! Her writing is so conversational that it makes you feel as though you´re having a good cup of coffee with your best friend and catching up on a long overdue chat. She passionately communicates the adventurous details of her successful career as a songwriter and CD/music video and television producer before having cancer the first time. While at the top of her game, she also served on the Atlanta Chapter of the Board of Governors for the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (the Grammy awards). Post cancer, all of that was redefined. Round two came nine years after the first bout. After being married to her career and single for her entire adult life, she had met and been dating for only three months a man named Jim. Jim´s first wife, Jan, had died of cancer. (The extraordinary details of how Jim and Donna D met and their courtship leading to marriage is nothing less than a modern day fairy tale!) Donna D likes to describe her wedding day as the day where in a one-hour ceremony, she became a wife, a mom to three adult children, and a Grammy to 11, all without labor pains! Lessons learned, faith deepened, and with an unshakeable understanding that everything has purpose, facing cancer the third time was viewed from a very different perspective. By then, she was able to embrace the truth that all things really do work together for good, even things we may not understand. Trusting god with the outcome, staying at peace, and residing in a place called surrender made all the difference. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Donna Douglas Walchle.

Until the watershed leak of top-secret documents by Edward Snowden to The Guardian (UK) and The Washington Post, most Americans did not realize the extent to which our government is actively acquiring personal information from telecommunications companies and other corporations. As made startlingly clear, the National Security Agency (NSA) has collected information on every phone call Americans have made over the past seven years. In that same time, the NSA and the FBI have gained the ability to access emails, photos, audio and video chats, and additional content from Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Microsoft, YouTube, Skype, Apple, and others, allegedly in order to track foreign targets. In Spying on Democracy, National Lawyers Guild executive director Heidi Boghosian documents the disturbing increase in surveillance of ordinary citizens and the danger it poses to our privacy, our civil liberties, and the future of democracy itself. Boghosian reveals how technology is being used to categorize and monitor people based on their associations, their movements, their purchases, and their perceived political beliefs. She shows how corporations and government intelligence agencies mine data from sources as diverse as surveillance cameras, unmanned drones, iris scans, and medical records while combing websites, email, phone records, and social media for resale to third parties, including US intelligence agencies. The ACLU´s Michael German says of the examples shown in Boghosian´s book, ´´This unrestrained spying is inevitably used to suppress the most essential tools of democracy: the press, political activists, civil rights advocates, and conscientious insiders who blow the whistle on corporate malfeasance and government abuse.´´ Boghosian adds, ´´If the trend is permitted to continue, we will soon live in a society where nothing is confidential, no information is really secure, and our civil liberties are under constant surveillance and con... 1.

Here is the ultimate book on the worldwide movement of hackers, pranksters, and activists that operates under the non-name Anonymous, by the writer the Huffington Post says ´´knows all of [Anonymous´s] deepest, darkest secrets.´´ Half a dozen years ago, anthropologist Gabriella Coleman set out to study the rise of this global phenomenon just as some of its members were turning to political protest and dangerous disruption. She ended up becoming so closely connected to Anonymous that the tricky story of her inside-outside status as Anon confidante, interpreter, and erstwhile mouthpiece forms one of the themes of this witty and entirely engrossing book. The narrative brims with details unearthed from within a notoriously mysterious subculture, whose semi-legendary tricksters - such as Topiary, tflow, Anachaos, and Sabu - emerge as complex, diverse, politically and culturally sophisticated people. Propelled by years of chats and encounters with a multitude of hackers, Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy is filled with insights into the meaning of digital activism and little-understood facets of culture in the Internet age. 1.
