Book Summary:

Damon Knightly liked two things...working hard and having fun. Known for his laid back and charming personality, he never lacked friendships and never turned down a chance to have a good time. So, when his twin brother, Curtis, proposed switching places - Damon couldn't help but consider the prospect. Get out of the small hometown where he grew up? Take advantage of the hustle and bustle of the city and nightlife? Really let loose for a little bit? It all sounded like a great plan. The last thing Damon expected when he arrived in DC was to find himself falling in love. But when it's time for him to head back home, his biggest challenge arises. With his roots planted firmly on the plot of land that's been in his family for years, Damon decides it's time for a new proposition: Convince Maeve Peterson that life in the country could be all the one thing she really needs.

Book Summary:

In part 1, “Identity K/not/e/s,” she considers the America of the 1950s and early 1960s, when contentious and troubled alliances took shape between different marginalized communities and their respective but overlapping bohemias—Jews, African Americans, the Beats, and gays and lesbians. Damon then turns to more contemporary issues and broader topics of poetics in part 2’s “Poetics for a Postliterary America” which goes on to paint a wider picture, dwelling less on close readings of individual poems and more on asking questions about the nature of poetry itself and its role in community formation and individual survival. Discussions of counterperformance, kinetics, the Nuyoricans, Latino identity, and electronic poetics enliven this section.

Book Summary:

How to create the change you want to see in the world using the paradigm-busting ideas in this "utterly fascinating" (Adam Grant) big-idea book.​ Most of what we know about how ideas spread comes from bestselling authors who give us a compelling picture of a world, in which "influencers" are king, "sticky" ideas "go viral," and good behavior is "nudged" forward. The problem is that the world they describe is a world where information spreads, but beliefs and behaviors stay the same. When it comes to lasting change in what we think or the way we live, the dynamics are different: beliefs and behaviors are not transmitted from person to person in the simple way that a virus is. The real story of social change is more complex. When we are exposed to a new idea, our social networks guide our responses in striking and surprising ways. Drawing on deep-yet-accessible research and fascinating examples from the spread of coronavirus to the success of the Black Lives Matter movement, the failure of Google+, and the rise of political polarization, Change presents groundbreaking and paradigm-shifting new science for understanding what drives change, and how we can change the world around us.

The Power of Ideals

  • File Pdf: the-power-of-ideals.pdf

Book Summary:

Cynicism often seems a smarter choice than idealism. There are reasons for this. Politicians have disappointed us time and again; trusted institutions have proven to be self-serving and corrupt; hopes for lasting world peace repeatedly have been dashed; and social inequities persist and increase, unabated by even the grandest of charitable efforts. It is now considered foolish to think that people can be counted on to rise above their narrow self-interests to serve the broader good, or to tell the truth if it does not reflect well on the self. Supporting this bleak view of the human condition is a moral psychology that has taken increasingly cynical turns in recent years. Famous studies have shown that we have an almost unlimited potential for cruelty when placed in the wrong situations. The Power of Ideals presents a different vision, supported by a different kind of evidence. It examines the lives and work of six 20th century moral leaders who pursued moral causes ranging from world peace to social justice and human rights. Using these six cases to illustrate how people can make choices guided by their moral convictions, rather than by base emotion or social pressures, authors William Damon and Anne Colby explore the workings of three virtues: inner truthfulness, humility, and faith. Through their portrayal of the noble lives of moral leaders, the authors argue that all of us--with ordinary lives--can exercise control over important life decisions and pursue ideals that we believe in.

Book Summary:

Cid, a Filipino musician who defied being away from a loving and protective family, dared to go to Japan during the time when the story of Maricris, a Filipina entertainer who was allegedly killed by a yakuza by plunging his sword to her vagina, was all over the news back home. He just wanted to work and earn his own money. What better way of doing it than to get paid doing what he enjoyed doing the most — singing.” With another singer, Maria, they went to Japan as a duo and performed in cities from Tokyo to Chiba and Nagoya. Japan was flowing with money! The place had a way of entertaining you! The delicious foods, the drinks, the drugs (if you’re into it), and of course, the tips! But without intending it, he got involved with Filipinas who had relations with yakuza. His life changed. He listened to stories told by another yakuza about his boss and his brothers. Every story left him with fear and the urge to get away as far as he could go. But he has to save Maria, who got herself involved with the boss. He won’t be able to live with himself if he just left without taking her. But the task was not an easy one. How can a musician who hasn’t learned any martial arts and instead spent his days playing his keyboard outsmart an evil man?

  • Category : Design
  • Reads : 983
  • File Pdf: moving-objects.pdf

Book Summary:

Moving Objects deals with emotive design: designed objects that demand to be engaged with rather than simply used. If postmodernism depended upon ironic distance, and Critical Design is all about questions, then emotive design runs hotter than this, confronting how designers are using feelings in what they make. Damon Taylor's original study considers these emotionally laden, highly authored works, often produced in limited editions and sold like art – objects such as a chair made from cuddly toys, a leather sofa that resembles a cow, and a jewellery box fashioned from human hair. Tracing the phenomenon back to the 'Dutch inflection' that began with Droog designers like Jurgen Bey and Hella Jongerius, Taylor conducts an analysis of the development of Design Art and looks for its origins in the uncanny explorations of surrealism. Offering a critique of Speculative Design, and an examination of the work of designers such as Mathias Bengtsson, whose work involves 'growing' furniture inside computers, Taylor asks what happens when the tangible melts into the datascape and design becomes a question of mobilities. In this way, Moving Objects examines contemporary issues of how we live with artefacts and what design can do.

  • File Pdf: we-are-the-land.pdf

Book Summary:

Before there was such a thing as “California,” there were the People and the Land. Manifest Destiny, the Gold Rush, and settler colonial society drew maps, displaced Indigenous People, and reshaped the land, but they did not make California. Rather, the lives and legacies of the people native to the land shaped the creation of California. We Are the Land is the first and most comprehensive text of its kind, centering the long history of California around the lives and legacies of the Indigenous people who shaped it. Beginning with the ethnogenesis of California Indians, We Are the Land recounts the centrality of the Native presence from before European colonization through statehood—paying particularly close attention to the persistence and activism of California Indians in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. The book deftly contextualizes the first encounters with Europeans, Spanish missions, Mexican secularization, the devastation of the Gold Rush and statehood, genocide, efforts to reclaim land, and the organization and activism for sovereignty that built today’s casino economy. A text designed to fill the glaring need for an accessible overview of California Indian history, We Are the Land will be a core resource in a variety of classroom settings, as well as for casual readers and policymakers interested in a history that centers the native experience.

Book Summary:

Burned out by working the baseball beat for years, in the summer of 1922 Damon Runyon was looking for a new sport to cover for The New York American as a change of pace. Having pilloried golf just a few years before, he went to Saratoga that August to sample horse racing and found that “There, right in front of him, were so many of the characters he so loved from his time covering the comings and goings of the Manhattan night crowd.” This was just the tonic Runyon needed to emerge from his malaise. Runyon didn’t just cover the great races and which horse won: he would get to the track days before and roam along the backstretch, speaking with the trainers, the gamblers, the rich owners, and the wise guys, many of which became model characters in his fiction and in the musical Guys and Dolls. This book collects the best of Runyon’s horse racing columns to 1936, when he moved on to other beats.

Book Summary:

'The future can't be predicted but it can be envisioned and brought lovingly into being.' Donella Meadows Like most of us, Damon Gameau has spent most of his adult years overwhelmed into inaction by the problem of climate change and its devastating effects on the planet. But when Damon became a father, he knew he couldn't continue to look away. So he decided to do what he does best, and tell a story. And the story became an imagining of what the world could look like in 2040, if we all decided to start doing things differently, right now. The result is the era-defining documentary 2040 - a meticulously researched plea for the adoption of community-building, energy-generating, connection-forging, forest-renewing, ocean-replenishing measures that science tells us will reset our planet's health, drive our economies and improve lives across the globe. 2040: A Handbook for the Regeneration shows us how we can stitch this magnificent vision into everyday life by engaging in activities such as cooking, shopping, gardening, sharing, working and teaching our kids. It shows us that climate change is a practical problem that can be tackled by each of us, one small step at a time, and that we can make a genuine difference - if we know what to do. Brimming with practical wisdom and even 50 delicious recipes, 2040: A Handbook for the Regeneration empowers you to become the change you want to see in the world. This is a specially formatted fixed-layout ebook that retains the look and feel of the print book. PRAISE FOR THE 2040 DOCUMENTARY '2040 is the Australian documentary everyone's going to be talking about' Mamamia 'even better than That Sugar Film!' Tom Tilley of Triple J's Hack 'In 2040, Gameau defaults to the position of inspiring people rather than alarming or overwhelming them. You leave the film wanting more, not less, of these sorts of productions.' Guardian 'a real glimpse of a greener future' Sydney Morning Herald

Book Summary:

In the first decades of the 21st-century, humanity manages to establish communication with other intelligent beings. Apparently harmless, the contact progressively strays towards being something far more dangerous than anybody ever imagined. It will not be as we had expected. "Starcode" tackles a star topic of science fiction with a radically original plot, whose development and outcome will surprise the reader, as much the aficionado of the genre as one who is simply in search of an entertaining and addictive book. As described online: "Starcode is a kind of high voltage ‘Contact' by Carl Sagan which will delight readers of science fiction. A fresh touch for science fiction, in a light read, whose ending and epilogue will make you reflect on the entire book. Recommended!" Carter Damon is an author who has sold thousands of books through Amazon.
