The Silver Way: China, Spanish America and the birth of globalisation 1565-1815: Penguin Specials Book Review:

Long before London and New York rose to international prominence, a trading route was discovered between Spanish America and China that ushered in a new era of globalisation. The Ruta de la Plata or ’Silver Way’ catalysed economic and cultural exchange, built the foundations for the first global currency and led to the rise of the first ‘world city’. And yet, for all its importance, the Silver Way is too often neglected in conventional narratives on the birth of globalisation. Gordon and Morales re-establish its fascinating role in economic and cultural history, with direct consequences for how we understand China today.

Starting with the basics of materials, equipment, and sofware, Kevin will explain the processes professional character designers follow to develop characters for publishing, games, and film. From ideas and thumbnails, anatomy and reference, through effective drawing, 3D mock-ups and full turnarounds, Kev explains how a character designer works to achieve professional results.

Creating Characters with Personality Book Review:

From Snow White to Shrek, from Fred Flintstone to SpongeBob SquarePants, the design of a character conveys personality before a single word of dialogue is spoken. Designing Characters with Personality shows artists how to create a distinctive character, then place that character in context within a script, establish hierarchy, and maximize the impact of pose and expression. Practical exercises help readers put everything together to make their new characters sparkle. Lessons from the author, who designed the dragon Mushu (voiced by Eddie Murphy) in Disney's Mulan—plus big-name experts in film, TV, video games, and graphic novels—make a complex subject accessible to every artist.

Conquering the Artists Struggle Book Review:

I have met numerous artists in my life, many of whom seem to be unfulfilled in their creative journey. I feel it is the same for many professionals. I personally believe that when we start on this path, we have great passion; a burning desire. This is what establishes the goals we want to achieve. These goals may consist of getting that job in the studio, or the project we wanted to do. We may find that once this happens, we become dormant, and stop setting those goals. It then turns into complaints, frustration, and the constant questioning of, "What is it that I really want to do?" This book is a collection of my trials, and personal thoughts about life as an artist. It’s also about reminding ourselves of the importance of setting new goals, creating that passion and vision, and the courage and perseverance to ignite your dreams again. This book is written for you.

The greatest transfer of wealth in the nation and the world is now unfolding. Money is about to flow away from the financially uninformed and flow towards the financially well-informed in the years ahead. Whenever governments start to dilute their money investors transfer their money into gold and silver. Although gold is a great way to preserve your wealth, it's silver you could actually make a fortune with. Protect your savings and create a substantial investment income every single month.

It will show you how to beat the new money thieves (Banks and Governments) at their own game while quietly profiting from the money meltdown that is now underway. We are approaching a monetary crisis of epic proportions never before seen. You are probably aware of the rising price of gold that's been going on for almost 10 years now. Most recently, gold started climbing with even greater speed. History repeats itself again and again. Whenever governments start to dilute their money investors transfer their money into gold and silver. Gold and silver have intrinsic value and will always prevail in any economy. Many financial experts predict that gold could at least double to $3,000 . . . $3,500 . . . and some say even $5,000! But experts also predict the price of silver could rise seven to eight times its current value before hitting its peak. What most non-investors and investors – including yourself – probably don't realize is that although gold is a great way to preserve your wealth, it's silver that could actually make you rich! The price of gold has already risen dramatically, but silver is just beginning its parabolic climb. Over the last 9 years the silver price increased an average of 29% per year! Compare this to the stock and real estate market, which declined when adjusted for inflation. Nine Reasons Why Silver is a Unique Wealth Building Instrument Silver, like gold, has intrinsic value Silver has been in a commodity bull cycle since 2000 Silver is a safe hedge against currency inflation Silver is a security choice during times of financial crisis Silver is rarer than gold Silver is used in 90% of all electronics – and its mostly non-renewable Silver leasing – the scam will be exposed soon Silver investment markets are expanding thanks to the Chinese What You Will Learn From Building Wealth with Silver You will discover why the Federal Reserve was created and why you and I have been kept in the dark about its true purpose.

Empires of the Weak Book Review:

What accounts for the rise of the state, the creation of the first global system, and the dominance of the West? The conventional answer asserts that superior technology, tactics, and institutions forged by Darwinian military competition gave Europeans a decisive advantage in war over other civilizations from 1500 onward. In contrast, Empires of the Weak argues that Europeans actually had no general military superiority in the early modern era. J. C. Sharman shows instead that European expansion from the late fifteenth to the late eighteenth centuries is better explained by deference to strong Asian and African polities, disease in the Americas, and maritime supremacy earned by default because local land-oriented polities were largely indifferent to war and trade at sea. Europeans were overawed by the mighty Eastern empires of the day, which pioneered key military innovations and were the greatest early modern conquerors. Against the view that the Europeans won for all time, Sharman contends that the imperialism of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was a relatively transient and anomalous development in world politics that concluded with Western losses in various insurgencies. If the twenty-first century is to be dominated by non-Western powers like China, this represents a return to the norm for the modern era. Bringing a revisionist perspective to the idea that Europe ruled the world due to military dominance, Empires of the Weak demonstrates that the rise of the West was an exception in the prevailing world order.

The Devil in Silver Book Review:

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • The Washington Post • Publishers Weekly New Hyde Hospital’s psychiatric ward has a new resident. It also has a very, very old one. Pepper is a rambunctious big man, minor-league troublemaker, working-class hero (in his own mind), and, suddenly, the surprised inmate of a budget-strapped mental institution in Queens, New York. He’s not mentally ill, but that doesn’t seem to matter. He is accused of a crime he can’t quite square with his memory. In the darkness of his room on his first night, he’s visited by a terrifying creature with the body of an old man and the head of a bison who nearly kills him before being hustled away by the hospital staff. It’s no delusion: The other patients confirm that a hungry devil roams the hallways when the sun goes down. Pepper rallies three other inmates in a plot to fight back: Dorry, an octogenarian schizophrenic who’s been on the ward for decades and knows all its secrets; Coffee, an African immigrant with severe OCD, who tries desperately to send alarms to the outside world; and Loochie, a bipolar teenage girl who acts as the group’s enforcer. Battling the pill-pushing staff, one another, and their own minds, they try to kill the monster that’s stalking them. But can the Devil die? The Devil in Silver brilliantly brings together the compelling themes that spark all of Victor LaValle’s radiant fiction: faith, race, class, madness, and our relationship with the unseen and the uncanny. More than that, it’s a thrillingly suspenseful work of literary horror about friendship, love, and the courage to slay our own demons. Praise for The Devil in Silver “A fearless exploration of America’s heart of darkness . . . a dizzying high-wire act.”—The Washington Post “LaValle never writes the same book and his recent is a stunner. . . . Fantastical, hellish and hilarious.”—Los Angeles Times “It’s simply too bighearted, too gentle, too kind, too culturally observant and too idiosyncratic to squash into the small cupboard of any one genre, or even two.”—The New York Times Book Review “Embeds a sophisticated critique of contemporary America’s inhumane treatment of madness in a fast-paced story that is by turns horrifying, suspenseful, and comic.”—The Boston Globe “LaValle uses the thrills of horror to draw attention to timely matters. And he does so without sucking the joy out of the genre. . . . A striking and original American novelist.”—The New Republic

2087 Book Review:

In the year 2087, life happens fast. Ben Zieglar, the main character and protagonist, is a product of this situation. Ben is a manager for Benevolence Corporation (B Corp.). B Corp is one of three main corporations in The Country (formerly the USA but referred to throughout the novel as The Country). The Country has cut itself off from the world and has fallen behind quite a ways in relation to the other powers of the world. At the corporations and throughout society, there are 3 levels of people. The highest levels are the Founders, who have acquired massive wealth and for the general advancement of mankind, control society. This is a small percent of people in The Country, less than even 0.1% of the people.On his walk home, Ben sees a lovely dark haired tan woman with Greenish-Blue Eyes. Ben doesn't talk to her and instead goes home. He then falls asleep and goes to work the next day. There at work, Ben meets his newest co-worker Jessica and they immediately hit it off. Then, the number 2 at B corp., Jonathan Vilheim II(2), is introduced into the novel. His uncle Jonathan, the first, is the current CEO. But Vilheim 2 is starting to run the entity and was instrumental in bringing Jessica into town. Vilheim 2 is the antagonist although at first it is unclear whether he is good or evil.Ben's best friend and co-worker Wally Elmore is introduced to the novel. Wally is a Founder himself and is a good friend to Ben. Wally is a little eccentric in his dress and only wears old style Vintage tuxedos. Wally has a twin brother Thomas, who is 5 minutes older than Wally. Thomas is the head of F corp. (Faction) and makes his way to town for the annual Elmore party. Wally and Thomas' relationship is strained because Thomas is a rebel and does not participate in the society of Ultra City (B Corp.) or Los Angeles (M corp.). Thomas, however, is quite smart, and due to his power, the technologically advanced societies must deal with him. Thomas meets Ben and believes he can turn Ben to the Faction.Next, a series of events is set off that threatens to unravel the delicate balance of society in the Year 2087.
