[Preview]Various Language Books # 1
OCTOBER 7, 2014 ~ MELODY

I received two packages today from Gmarket and Createspace!

[...]

The book I ordered from Createspace is a Toki Pona book. Toki Pona is a language that only has 120 words(not including borrowed words). Toki Pona was created in 2001 and can be learned for free on this site. They recently released a book version this summer, which I only found out about a week ago! I bought it right away and I hope I can learn this little language better now.

On this day, 21 January 1950, George Orwell, celebrated British author and socialist who fought against the fascists in the Spanish civil war and revolution, died aged 46.

Orwell fought with the anti-Stalinist, socialist POUM militia, and was shot in the neck by the fascists, while many Western journalists and authors just hung out in Barcelona hotels.

He vividly described the atmosphere in revolutionary Barcelona in his excellent account of the conflict, Homage to Catalonia:

"The Anarchists were still in virtual control of Catalonia and the revolution was still in full swing… It was the first time that I had ever been in a town where the working class was in the saddle… Waiters and shop-walkers looked you in the face and treated you as an equal. Servile and even ceremonial forms of speech had temporarily disappeared. Nobody said 'Senor' or 'Don' or even 'Usted'; everyone called everyone else 'Comrade'

"Radiation surely must be the showstopper preventing mankind’s exploration of the Universe.”

Lack of knowledge about the biological effects of and responses to space radiation is the single most important factor limiting the prediction of radiation risk associated with human space exploration. – The Augustine Commission, 2009

How William #Gibson Keeps His #ScienceFiction Real


Source: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/12/16/how-william-gibson-keeps-his-science-fiction-real
Gibson first used the word “cyberspace” in 1981, in a short #story called “Burning Chrome.” He worked out the idea more fully in his first novel, “Neuromancer,” published in 1984, when he was thirty-six. Set in the mid-twenty-first century, “Neuromancer” follows a heist that unfolds partly in physical space and partly in “the matrix”—an #online realm.

@rasputin
you are either young and ignorant
Your main argument is insults. Apparently it is connected with your racist preferences - you are a privileged Westerner, and i am just a slavic resident of the territory of your raw material colony.
I'll save the Dalai Lama for last
Apparently, you have something in common with him. As with the CIA, which finances it. He also had a common interest with this man, the leader of the Aum Shinrikyo:

from Permanent Record by Edward Snowden

Chapter 18

This equality consists not only of rights but also of freedoms. In fact, many of the rights most cherished by citizens of democracies aren’t even provided for in law except by implication. They exist in that open-ended empty space created through the restriction of government power. For example, Americans only have a “right” to free speech because the government is forbidden from making any law restricting that freedom, and a “right” to a free press because the government is forbidden from making any law to abridge it. They only have a “right” to worship freely because the government is forbidden from making any law respecting an establishment of religion, and a “right” to peaceably assemble and protest because the government is forbidden from making any law that says they can’t.\
\
In contemporary life, we have a single concept that encompasses all this negative or potential space that’s off-limits to the government. That c

The Very Book The Government Does Not Want You To Read Just Went #1 In The World....
The Facts: Edward Snowden recently released a book titled Permanent Record. The US government is now suing the publisher of the book for not giving the CIA and the NSA a chance to erase classified details from the book.
Reflect On: What is the government really protecting? Are they protecting the well being of the citizenry or are they protecting immoral, unethical, political, corporate and elitist interests?
George Orwell’s 1984 is a classic book depicting a populace ruled by a political regime that persecutes individualism and independent critical thinking as “thoughtcrimes” that must be enforced by the “thought police.” This party seeks power above all, and, through the propagandist Ministry of Truth, presents the people with their version of truth and casts away all other information and opinion.

#1972 #film version of #AlvinTofler’s #book #FutureShock today:



'Future Shock' is a #documentary film based on the book written in 1970 by sociologist and futurist Alvin Toffler. Released in 1972, with a cigar-chomping Orson Welles as on-screen narrator, this piece of futurism is darkly dystopian and oozing techno-paranoia.

Modern Science and Anarchy by Peter Kropotkin, edited by Iain McKay

I want to read this one but i already have 8 book waiting form me ... :'(

“Iain McKay’s introduction is a model of scholarship and succeeds not only in contextualising and explaining Kropotkin’s ideas, but also in addressing a number of misunderstandings and misrepresentations along the way. He also makes a convincing case for the book’s continuing relevance for present-day radicals.” —David Berry, author of A History of the French Anarchist Movement, 1917 to 1945

“This is a welcome new translation of a long neglected text by Peter Kropotkin.... This book will not only be of keen interest to specialists in science studies, political epistemology, and the history of political ideas, but also to contemporary libertarian activists who will still find plenty of relevant, clearly explained material to engage with.” —Benjamin Franks, author of Rebel Alliances: The Means and Ends of Contemporary British Anarchisms

Stromboli Eruption Kills As Predicted - Grain Prices Spike - Anthropogenic Warming Farce



#GSM #Pole Shift #Stromboli #volcano #Italy

NO EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE FOR THE SIGNIFICANT ANTHROPOGENIC CLIMATE CHANGE https://arxiv.org/pdf/1907.00165.pdf

Climate Revolution #Book
By David DuByne
The Climate Revolution e-book is a ‘Must Read’ for understanding our #Sun driven #climate as we progress deeper into the new Eddy Grand Solar Minimum. Weather extremes leading to Global #food scarcity and high food prices are here now, and this book describes the expected changes, how to survive & thrive during future challenging times with practical preparations.

You will get a PDF (44MB) file
https://payhip.com/b/3sVi/af5d16bf1d84226
 
coming back to this- I'm liking #manuskript these days- coupled with #Pandoc (which I can use from the command line to create a PDF view of a standard 6"x9" (USA) book. Pandoc exports the book from Manuskript through a Latex engine, and then outputs a printer-ready PDF, complete with illustrations, TOC, index if I want, title page, chapters, sections- it even shows the page numbers and I can tell there are left pages and right pages. Pandoc does all this with just a line or two of code from my linux terminal. Looks like it'll be fairly easy to #create a #book with these two applications, and #lulu. Inserting illustrations is as easy as uploading the images to a hosting site like ' #postimage ', and then using a standard Markdown reference within the text to reference the url of the image file. Pandoc fits the illustration on the page seamlessly.

I'm pretty happy about this.
