Whose Global Village?

A call to action to include marginalized, non-western communities in the continuously expanding digital revolution   In the digital age, technology has shrunk the physical world into a "global village,¿ where we all seem to be connected as an online community as information travels to the farthest reaches of the planet with the click of a mouse. Yet while we think of platforms such as Twitter and Facebook as open and accessible to all, in reality, these are commercial entities developed primarily by and for the Western world. Considering how new technologies increasingly shape labor, economics, and politics, these tools often reinforce the inequalities of globalization, rarely reflecting the perspectives of those at the bottom of the digital divide.                  This book asks us to re-consider ¿whose global village' we are shaping with the digital technology revolution today. Sharing stories of collaboration with Native Americans in California and New Mexico, revolutionaries in Egypt, communities in rural India, and others across the world, Ramesh Srinivasan urges us to re-imagine what the Internet, mobile phones, or social media platforms may look like when considered from the perspective of diverse cultures. Such collaborations can pave the way for a people-first approach toward designing and working with new technology worldwide. Whose Global Village seeks to inspire professionals, activists, and scholars alike to think about technology in a way that embraces the realities of communities too often relegated to the margins. We can then start to visualize a world where technologies serve diverse communities rather than just the Western consumer.

Morton Farrier has spent his entire career as a forensic genealogist solving other people’s family history secrets, all the while knowing so little of his very own family’s mysterious past. However, this poignant Christmas-time novella sees Morton’s skills put to use much closer to home, as he must confront his own past, present, and future through events both present day and 100 years ago. It seems that not every soldier saw a truce on the Western Front that Christmas in 1914....This Morton Farrier novella continues the story from The Lost Ancestor, book two in the series.For updates on Nathan Dylan Goodwin's releases: Website: nathandylangoodwin.com Twitter: @NathanDGoodwin76 Facebook: facebook.com/nathandylangoodwin 1.

A man hiding from his past and a woman running from hers. Two people from different worlds who know one another only from what they have shared in Facebook messages. They've never heard the other's voice, or seen a photo. Analise Becke writes romance with western heroes, men she has dreamed up by combining the looks of her favorite western actor with the qualities she discovers in her online chats with the Texas rancher, Riley Morgan. She's cooked up more than a few fantasies about Riley over the last year, but knows them for what they are - fantasies of a lonely woman whose marriage is falling apart. Riley looks forward to the online chats more than he is willing to admit but has never considered asking what she looks like. She's just an online friend. Yeah, they have a connection, but certainly not enough to even consider that a face-to-face meeting will spark anything other than a solidification of their friendship. Riley Morgan and Analise Becke are in for a big surprise - actually a series of surprises. Their lives are about to be turned upside down as passion and danger come to Cotton Creek, Texas. And they say nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. Scott Bennett. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/051656/bk_acx0_051656_sample.mp3.

Becoming Right: How Campuses Shape Young Conser...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Conservative pundits allege that the pervasive liberalism of America's colleges and universities has detrimental effects on undergraduates, most particularly right-leaning ones. Yet not enough attention has actually been paid to young conservatives to test these claims - until now. In Becoming Right, Amy Binder and Kate Wood carefully explore who conservative students are, and how their beliefs and political activism relate to their university experiences. Which parts of conservatism do these students identify with? How do their political identities evolve on campus? And what do their educational experiences portend for their own futures - and for the future of American conservatism? Becoming Right demonstrates the power that campus culture has in developing students' conservative political styles and shows that young conservatives are made, not born. Focusing on two universities - "Eastern Elite" and "Western Public" - Binder and Wood discover that what is acceptable, or even celebrated, political speech and action on one campus might be unthinkable on another. Right-leaning students quickly learn the styles of conservatism that are appropriate for their schools. Though they might be expected to simply plug into the national conservative narrative - via media from Fox News to Facebook - college conservatives actually enact their politics in starkly different ways. Rich in interviews and insight, Becoming Right illustrates that the diverse conservative movement evolving among today's college students holds important implications for the direction of American politics. 1.

Service Leadership: How Having a Calling Makes ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What will motivate an organization’s employees to be fully engaged in the corporate purpose? How can a company be less "Big Brother knows best" and more supportive of individual employees’ pursuit of workplace meaning? Pioneer business strategist Theodore Roosevelt Malloch’s Service Leadership answers these questions and more. "Service leadership" is the service of the diversity of interests of employees and their quest for purpose under the corporate umbrella. An organization will not get the most out of its workforce unless it respects and facilitates each individual’s framework for the pursuit of meaning, which is often done in the context of spirituality and religion. Malloch examines spirituality in Western culture in terms of broad societal trends - the context within which people engage in their individual discernment of meaning. Service leadership takes many forms and is not the same for everyone. People can and want to learn how to become service leaders. Both a practitioner and a professor, Malloch shows how these ideas can be implemented through a detailed framework. His extensive research has confirmed that organizations that do not address the existing core belief systems of employees will be disadvantaged in the marketplace. Interviews with and analysis of top executives at organizations like Whole Foods, Facebook, Gloria Jean’s Coffee, and Costco shed light on how both companies and employees can utilize service leadership to find and keep meaning in the workplace, improving both job happiness and performance.  1.

A former FBI Special Agent, US Army officer, and leading cyber-security expert offers a devastating and essential look at the misinformation campaigns, fake news, and electronic espionage operations that have become the cutting edge of modern warfare - and how we can protect ourselves and our country against them. Clint Watts electrified the nation when he testified in front of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election. In Messing with the Enemy, the counterterrorism, cybersecurity, and homeland security expert introduces us to a frightening world in which terrorists and cyber criminals don’t hack your computer, they hack your mind. Watts reveals how these malefactors use your social media information and that of your family, friends, and colleagues to map your social networks, identify your vulnerabilities, master your fears, and harness your preferences. Thanks to the schemes engineered by social media manipulators using you and your information, business executives have coughed up millions in fraudulent wire transfers, seemingly good kids have joined the Islamic State, and staunch anti-communist Reagan Republicans have cheered the Russian government’s hacking of a Democratic presidential candidate’s emails. Watts knows how they do it because he’s mirrored their methods to understand their intentions, combat their actions, and co-opt their efforts. Watts examines a range of social media platforms - from the first Internet forums to the current titans of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn - and nefarious actors - from Al Qaeda to the Islamic State to the Russian social media troll farm - to illuminate exactly how they use Western social media for their nefarious purposes. He explains how he’s learned, through his successes and his failures, to engage with hackers, terrorists, and even the Russians - and how these interactions have generated methods for fighting back against thos 1.
