Computer Curious: Stories and lessons from the dawn of the digital age in africa by Marc Maxmeister

Back in the early 2000s, before Facebook existed, before Google was a verb, African youths were flocking to the Internet. I trekked across Gambia, Senegal, and Ghana in search of what drew them to the Internet. After visits to 30 schools and hundreds of Interviews, I discovered that curiosity and a drive to create in a culture where education stifles creativity was the deeper reason behind the allure of the Internet.

In this book I focus on why and how computer culture evolved in Africa, and wrap it in my own adventures of exotic discomfort on the open road, ill-conceived conceits to bring Internet to remote villages, rocket yams in the name of science, wandering through a refugee camp to deliver a letter, hobnobbing with power mongers in the capitol, and generally seeing how education can foster creativity. Computers are a powerful enabler for creativity, and their novelty in Africa unleashed a lot of great minds.

These stories also illustrate the twisted fate of “development work.” It illustrates the good that a Peace Corps Volunteer and Fulbright Researcher can do in Africa, and offers cautionary tales of ignorant people who try too hard to help without listening to the people they aim to serve. These stories from the dawn of the computer age in Africa offer poignant lessons on how we can tell the difference – and it’s time we learned how. I hope this book inspires and instructs others who started out as naive as I was, but are willing to work with others to build a brighter, more creative world.

Midway (Of Soldiers, Six: A Tapestry of Twisted Threads in Folio Book 3) by Stephen Donald Huff

One of the most pivotal waterborne engagements in history would not be fought ship-to-ship in the traditional fashion of naval warfare, a brutal duel between massive battleships. This titanic contest would be decided without either commander sighting the other, for victory would ultimately be claimed in the skies, aircraft to aircraft. Its outcome directly determined the future of the individual sailor and aviator, but it also indirectly decided the fates of their entire homelands, as well. For the combatants, Midway was not merely an isolated battle in the larger conflict, rather it would decide the war entirely and the fate of the world thereafter.

Poised between barbarity and civilization, this key historical conflict determined the fate of its participants in a single engagement. Will humankind ever fully benefit from the sacrifices made that fateful day in the skies surrounding the tiny Pacific Island called Midway? An insightful short story.

Doppelgänger: The Legend Of Lee Harvey Oswald by George Schwimmer PhD

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES – THE ENIGMA OF LEE HARVEY OSWALD – HAS BEEN SOLVED!

TWO ‘LEE HARVEY OSWALDS’ WERE AT THE TEXAS SCHOOL BOOK DEPOSITORY ON NOVEMBER 22, 1963 – ONE WAS AN ASSASSIN ON THE SIXTH FLOOR, THE OTHER WAS A PATSY DOWNSTAIRS ON THE FRONT STEPS! INCLUDES PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED – EXPLOSIVE – MATERIAL!

The photographs on the cover show the right side of Lee Oswald’s face (from a 1959 passport photo of ‘Lee Harvey Oswald’) and the left side of the face of ‘Harvey Oswald’ (from his Dallas booking photo in 1963), revealing that these were two different men!

The John F. Kennedy assassination is a cold case murder, which the Dallas District Attorney’s office has failed to investigate for the past fifty-two years, although much evidence has been uncovered by citizen investigators, although Dallas has jurisdiction over the murder, and although there is no statute of limitation on murder. The Warren Commission alone decided Oswald’s guilt, not a Dallas jury. The U.S. government had no legal jurisdiction whatever over the murder of President John F. Kennedy.

The key to JFK’s assassination is not the guilt of Lee Oswald, a CIA contract agent – he was guilty of conspiracy, treason and murder – but the innocence of ‘Harvey Oswald’, an employee of the Texas School Book Depository and an agent of the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), the CIA and the FBI, who was murdered by Jack Ruby. Harvey’s innocence demonstrates that there indeed was a conspiracy to murder John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

George Schwimmer, PhD, became interested in the apparent innocence of ‘Harvey Oswald’ and began to assemble his cold case files, including startling verbatim Warren Commission testimony, and immense help from the massive research project HARVEY AND LEE by John Armstrong, as well as LEE & ME, by Judyth Vary Baker. As with all research, one fact led to another, until a coherent picture began to emerge from the immense pile of puzzle pieces.

That picture includes the background of Harvey as a juvenile immigrant fluent in Russian, the creation of a second ‘Lee Harvey Oswald’ and a second ‘Marguerite Oswald’ – the real Oswalds originally New Orleans natives connected to Mob boss Carlos Marcello. The picture continues with the recruitment of both Lee Oswald and Harvey Oswald by the ONI and the CIA, followed by Harvey’s assumption of Lee’s identity, his ‘defection’ to Russia, and Lee’s involvement with the Cuban revolution.

The legend expands into New Orleans, where Harvey is “sheep-dipped” to seem like a fervent pro-Castro sympathizer and where he begins to be sucked into the Kennedy assassination plot by his renegade CIA handler. Finally, unable to control his destiny, he winds up on the steps of the Dallas School Book Depository, while Lee Oswald is inside on the sixth floor shooting at the president.

Harvey’s whereabouts on November 22, 1963 are tracked minute by minute, showing that he could not have been where the Warren Commission claimed he was. In the end, of course, Harvey was murdered by the same cabal that killed JFK and falsely accused by the Warren Commission, the FBI, and the CIA of being a killer and traitor, when it was his accusers who were the killers and traitors. Some previously undisclosed conspirators in the Texas School Book Depository are also revealed.

This is a theoretical reconstruction, pieced together from many factual sources, some facts necessarily joined with rational deduction. The book is intended for the person who just wants an overview of Harvey’s life and activities. Although written in the first person, Harvey narrating his life story, all of the facts in the account have been checked and verified.

The book is a new configuration of facts and verbatim testimony, much from the Warren Commission archives but not published elsewhere before. Once you’ve read this account, you will never again believe that ‘Harvey Oswald’ shot President Kennedy.

Mu Xin: The Literary Odyssey by Joanne Wang

Mu Xin (1927-2011) is the pen name of a renowned Chinese writer and artist. Born in Wuzhen, near Shanghai, China, into a wealthy aristocratic family, Mu Xin was among those in the last generation to receive a classical education in the literati tradition, while at the same time he was also exposed through voluminous reading to the highest achievements of Western art and culture at a very young age. From 1947 to 1949, Mu Xin attended Shanghai Institute of the Arts. From 1949 to 1982, Mu Xin lived in China. Although he wrote profusely in that period, all of his earlier manuscripts were confiscated and destroyed during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). In 1982 after coming to live in the US, Mu Xin began to publish books of short stories, prose, and poetry (in Chinese) and contributed regularly to literary columns in Chinese journals and newspapers outside the PRC. Among the Chinese diaspora, Mu Xin’s works have attracted an intense following. Few Chinese writers in modern history possess a mastery of the Chinese cultural and linguistic heritage as firm as that of Mu Xin. Innovatively combining fiction, sanwen (a Chinese genre which blends characteristics of the essay, fiction, and poetry), and philosophical reflections, Mu Xin’s writing is both profoundly Chinese and reminiscent of the internalization and unconventionality of Western modern masters. In addition to his literary accomplishments, Mu Xin was also a well recognized artist whose paintings are preserved in, among other places, the Yale University and Harvard University Art Galleries, and now in the upcoming Mu Xin Museum in his hometown Wuzhen.
In 2006, Mu Xin returned to China at the invitation of Wuzhen Township, where the local government had renovated his family house. The same year, his writings were published for the first time in Mainland China.
A selection of Mu Xin’s prose fiction, An Empty Room, was published in English by New Directions Publishing in 2011.
Included in this collection are extremely rare interviews Mu Xin conducted while living in New York, and articles written by those who knew Mu Xin personally for more than a decade, and others who know him through his writings and art.

Leonardo in Venice: An Essay by Francesca Stanfill

Venice in March, 1500: rich, cosmopolitan, teeming with genius, magnet to great artists. The aging lion, Leonardo Da Vinci, arrives in the city to make his mark. At the same time, a young painter, Giorgione, has begun his ascent. It seems likely that the two men, the legend from Florence and the wunderkind from Castelfranco, did meet. What evidence is there for an exchange between the two? What influence did Leonardo have on the painting of Giorgione? In a fascinating display of art historical detective work, this essay examines the links between the two artists, and comes to a provocative conclusion.
