TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGH!

Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device — “BOOK”

BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology; no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on.

It’s easy to use. Even a child can operate it.

Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere – even sitting in an armchair by the fire – yet it is powerful enough to hold as much as a CD-ROM.

BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper (recyclable), each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. The pages are locked together with one of two different custom devices, a BINDER, or DOUBLE STITCH BINDING, which keep the sheets in their correct sequence. Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information density.

Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly to your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet.

BOOK never crashes nor requires rebooting. The ‘browse’ function allows instant movement to any sheet, forward or backward, as one wishes. Many come with an ‘index’ feature, which pinpoints the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval.

Portable, durable and affordable, BOOK is being hailed as a precursor of a new entertainment wave. BOOK’s appeal seems so certain that thousands of content creators have committed to the platform and investors are reportedly flocking to the medium. Look for a flood of new BOOKS at. . .

I’m a big fan of being read to. Some people think listening to books “doesn’t count”. Well, this article explains some of the power of a good audiobook. “All my life, I’ve been a book snob. The movie? Bah, never as good. TV series? Oh, please. No budget will ever encompass the special effects that can be generated in the mind of a reader. No cast of actors can so perfectly embody the characters as that drafted to the task by the imagination. Reading is, in the best of circumstances, a short step removed from collaborative telepathy. How could any other medium hope to compete with those castles of the mind?
As it happens, I think there is such a medium. And it’s the audiobook.”

Well! I think I’ve just experienced a conversion!
Thanks for the article.

I’d love it if DH read to me, but he doesn’t seem to want to. He’s very doting in other ways, so I’m puzzled as to why. I think it’s because he reads very quickly, but if he has to speak the words, it becomes too slow for him.

Audiobooks may be just the ticket for me!

:) Bridget

I like the example that the author’s writing group decided the writers would read their works aloud, not just provide printed copies.

:) kaizenkaren

I am a long time friend and listener of audible books. They are a wonderful way to pass some time.

:) MaryAnn
over 4 years ago

Actually, I just asked DH why he doesn’t, and he said it’s hard to find an appropriate book. And yes, sometimes he wants to read quickly. For instance, if it’s a book on linguistics or mathematics that he hasn’t read before, he’d want to jump ahead.

Sigh….
A book on linguistics.

You see my problem, eh?

Actually #2, he does read fiction, and broad-spectrum history (e.g. Guns, Germs, Steel ) so we could probably find one we both like. It probably has a lot to do with the inertia around doing something new and different. Old farts that we are.

:) wetenschapper

This is so timely. I’ve often only listened to audiobooks as relaxation to fall asleep and had a similar sort of “it doesn’t count” reaction, but I just found several audiobooks I want to listen to on Scribd. Now I can listen and knit on public transport!

I’ve never been a real fan of audio books, although sometimes if I’m really caught up in a book on my Kindle, I’ll turn on the text to speech and walk around with it while I clean. I may have to investigate this because audio books are easier to come by from the library than e-books.

If you like The New Yorker, or would like to try The New Yorker but have never been willing to pay for their online content or the paper magazine, well, here’s news you can use: IT’S FREE FOR THE REST OF THE SUMMER.

All on-line digital content, including the last gazillion years of archives and all the new stuff. They print so many wonderful short stories, and have archived tons of really fantastic work by some of the best writers, that it’s worth a look if it’s up your alley.

At the end of the summer (I don’t know how they define that — Labor Day, maybe?) they are moving to a scalable pay-as-you-read plan, in addition to subscriptions. I am glad to learn that as, sometimes, they do publish things I’d be willing to pay to access, as needed.

I have a friend who does that, singingwriting. I envy her for it. She has no pets, however. Once I’m conscious, the psychic furbears begin to send mind vibes to me about their breakfast. But what a good idea.

“Realistic fiction”. Not a genre I can claim to know anything about. (runs off to Google). Wow, learned something…interesting, thanks!

:) MaryAnn
almost 6 years ago

Cynthia, my impression is that what you’re writing is “realistic fiction”… right?
We all know it, just haven’t heard it called that.

:) CynthiaR
almost 6 years ago

MaryAnn, what I’m writing (the novel) is Historical Fiction. I think it’s different than ‘realistic fiction’ which is a story that, although untrue, could have happened. (per several definitions I just read). (singingwriting can correct me here, please)

Historical fiction is based on real events in history, though there are naturally fictional aspects (we don’t really know what was really said or done if it’s not captured anywhere) and/or the device of putting fictional characters in a real setting and using them to look into that history is used. I’m doing the latter. My book is very accurate—or as accurate as I can make it—as to the history. The “big names” are real. But my little band of characters is fabricated—but based on other people who did what they did at the time. The events are as real as my accuracy and sources allow me to make them, though I am toying with the idea of moving the opening date of a railway line to suit my story (which is allowed and so acknowledged) line. Imagine my dismay when I had them all jaunting off to Malvern on the train (it is an important journey) and that particular train line didn’t open till nearly two years later!

There is also a definition about time—I think it’s that the historical event/s must have been at least 50 years ago but don’t quote me.

A newly-emerging genre (to confuse us all) is “creative non-fiction”, which takes something factual and enhances it (‘using literary skills in the creation of non-fiction’). I only recently discovered that the story I had published last year, and most of the other things I write and am working on, are actually creative non-fiction, most likely.

It’s all kinda mushy, though. Given the published story took place when I was seven years old, my writing instructor was quick to point out that, actually, I’m old enough to call it “historical fiction”. Right, like I needed that!

:) MaryAnn
almost 6 years ago

Oh. Okay. Something new I learned, then.

I thought historical fiction would be a subset of realistic fiction — i.e., that realistic fiction was in contrast to genres such as fantasy, the fantastic, science fiction, magic realism.

But I don’t know much about these fine distinctions between genres. So I cede to your authority. :-)

Want a FREE book of short poems? Today is the launch day of A Blackbird Sings: A Book of Short Poems, edited by Fiona Robyn and Kaspalita (of Writing Our Way Home). Both amazon.com and amazon.co.uk have the book at $0.00/£0.00 if you’re interested.

http://www.writingourwayhome.com/2012/10/today-is-mindful-writing-day-free-book.html

The poems were selected from WOWH member submissions during a specific day earlier in the year. Fiona and Kaspa work with and promote “small stones”, short poems sortof like haiku, as part of their writing classes and writing as therapy.

The do free book intros like this because it gets their numbers up on the Amazon rank—and the rest of us don’t have to pay for it. A number of the small stones in this edition were written by people in on-line classes I’ve taken and it’s wonderful to see them get published.

I believe this is only for November 1st so don’t wait if you’re interested. And feel free to share with others.

HAPPY NEW HEALTH MONTH!

Oh, good, Mary Ann. I missed Bridget’s post. Last day of the month always seems to hide things from me. Or I nod off.

Fiona is my writing coach (and therapist when I’ve needed one). I love her work and am very happy to watch-and-learn through her successes with her books. Kaspa (her husband and co-editor) is a Pureland buddhist monk and Fiona herself is being ordained in December. I’ve gotten so much out of their classes over the past 18 months now that I sometimes forget what a tremendous difference WOWH and Kaspa and Fiona have had on my life. They are aces.

Heart.half.16 6 · 1,617 pts

So Teammates, Booklovers and Bookworms. I got a question, as I think I should change my reading behaviour, I always read in bed, and these days, I find it hard to do so, as I tend to be to tired then. My question thus, where do you read and when do you read? Morning? Evening? On the couch? On the toilet? TELL ME

:) MaryAnn

I almost never read in bed. I read at any other time of day.
I sit in a chair.
In cold weather, an armchair in the living-room.
In warm weather, a molded plastic patio chair, outside, under the magnolia tree in the back yard.
I like to sit quite straight and upright (as opposed to sort of lounging), with a cushion or two behind my back…
both for comfort (so my back doesn’t tired), and to stay awake. :-)

In case you missed it . . . We do have a “BOOKS” thread
… and you can add to it all month long!

It’s just a nice, handy way to keep a sort of books-read list, all in one place, where people can post and then refer back to.
We started with this idea a few months ago, when several people on the team were looking for a way to keep a running “books” thread.

It’s the first post of the month, on this team wall.

You can find it in one of 2 ways:

1) go to the first post of the month, which is always on the highest-numbered page in the series at the very bottom of your screen (at the moment, that’s page 4 – just click on that number)

- or -

2) go to this link http://healthmonth.com/n/221880

I commute to work by subway so that’s my natural reading time. If you have any similar “dead” time in your day you can make an effort to use that. Another approach would be to try to go to bed earlier, so you’re not too tired to read.

Definitely part of wind-down, but sometimes earlier. If I catch myself web browsing for its own sake, I will (sometimes) grab a book at that moment. (Much easier to do in the middle of a good book than the beginning of a new one I’m not sure of yet.)

I do the same thing as you. I just finished reading an entire book 2-5 pages at a time right before I fall asleep (it took months!) and only realized after about 600 pages that I didn’t even really like the book.

Orang yang merokok dan juga orang di sekitar perokok yang sering menghirup asap rokok dapat terkena dampak yang cukup parah jika berlangsung terus menerus karena di dalam asap rokok terkandung racun-racun yang berbahaya bagi sistem reproduksi.

Racun rokok bisa menyebabkan gangguan kehamilan, gangguan janin, keguguran, memperlambat gerakan sperma, merusak sistem reproduksi, ovulasi tidak lancar, dan sebagainya yang sangat tidak baik bagi yang ingin punya ketururunan.

Brie Cheese Appetizer

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) wheel Brie cheese
  • 60 g apricot preserves
  • 0.5 (17.5 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg white

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a cookie sheet. 2. Slice one wheel of Brie cheese in half so you have 2 circles of cheese. Spread apricot or peach preserves on (the cut side) half of one circle of brie. Make sandwich out of the two halves of Brie, so that the preserves are in the center of both halves. Wrap the entire wheel of Brie with one sheet of puffed pastry and flip the entire concoction onto the prepared cooking sheet so the seam is on bottom. Brush the puffed pastry with the egg white. 3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the pastry in golden brown. Serve immediately.

Wanita Cepat Akrab Dengan Teman dan
Keluarga Kekasihnya
Pacar yang hebat tak sekadar mau
membantu ibu Anda di dapur, mendengarkan
cerita ayah Anda dan hang out bersama
teman-teman Anda. Ia melakukan hal
tersebut bukan hanya untuk menyenangkan
kekasihnya, tapi benar-benar menikmati
kegiatan tersebut dan melakukannya
dengan sepenuh hati. Pacar yang baik
sangat menghargai orang-orang yang
dianggap penting oleh kekasihnya.
