The church spends $1.5 million for every one new follower of Jesus. Apple sells 26 iPads every minute. What is it that makes Apple so exciting and Jesus so boring? What is it that compels someone to bring their iPod everywhere and their Bible nowhere? In a word: marketing. Jesus is a life-changing product with lousy salespeople - people who are intimidated and embarrassed by the word ´´evangelism´´ and who show more enthusiasm for their gadgets than their God. What would life look like if we could market our faith like Nike and Apple market their products - sharing relationally, from person to person? Using examples from these and other successful companies, author Tim Sinclair challenges Christians to throw out their casual attitudes toward faith and sign on for a marketing campaign for the Savior. Written with the wit and wisdom of an experienced marketer, Branded peels away the feelings of fear and explains how to share faith in ways that are honest, authentic, and, most importantly, effective. 1.

This volume summarizes the authors work on social information seeking (SIS), and at the same time serves as an introduction to the topic. Sometimes also referred to as social search or social information retrieval, this is a relatively new area of study concerned with the seeking and acquiring of information from social spaces on the Internet. It involves studying situations, motivations, and methods involved in seeking and sharing of information in participatory online social sites, such as Yahoo! Answers, WikiAnswers, and Twitter, as well as building systems for supporting such activities. The first part of the book introduces various foundational concepts, including information seeking, social media, and social networking. As such it provides the necessary basis to then discuss how those aspects could intertwine in different ways to create methods, tools, and opportunities for supporting and leveraging SIS. Next, Part II discusses the social dimension and primarily examines the online question-answering activity. Part III then emphasizes the collaborative aspect of information seeking, and examines what happens when social and collaborative dimensions are considered together. Lastly, Part IV provides a synthesis by consolidating methods, systems, and evaluation techniques related to social and collaborative information seeking. The book is completed by a list of challenges and opportunities for both theoretical and practical SIS work. The book is intended mainly for researchers and graduate students looking for an introduction to this new field, as well as developers and system designers interested in building interactive information retrieval systems or social/community-driven interfaces. ?Chirag Shah is Associate Professor of Information and Computer Science at Rutgers University. His research interests include studies of interactive information retrieval/seeking, especially those involving social and collaborative aspects. He has published extensively on these topics, and received several grants and awards for his work. His research falls under and uniquely connects computer science, data science, and information science.
At a time when building walls has re-emerged as a choice on the political agenda, knowledge sharing has increased in importance by strengthening open, horizontal international relations. All parties involved in knowledge sharing are both learners and teachers at the same time, bringing their wisdom, abilities and convictions in order to face the increasingly urgent global challenges that cannot be resolved by any single individual. Latin America has a rich tradition of knowledge sharing that ranges from day-to-day action to fundamental decisions on a societal level. This book builds on this richness by providing conceptual contributions as well as practical case studies that will hopefully inspire new experiences and further research.

On the heels of the best-selling success of The Ultimate Gift and the major motion picture from 20th Century Fox based on that book, Jim Stovall brings you The Millionaire Map. This is the book I wished was available 30 years ago when I was desperate and broke with only a dream of one day being a millionaire. Now, as a multimillionaire, I want to share the wisdom I´ve gained from the journey and provide other travelers with a map to guide them on their journey.´´ (Jim Stovall) The Millionaire Map reveals... You can´t expand your wallet until you expand your mind. Becoming a millionaire is not just about all the things you want to have, but it´s about the things you want to do and give. In order to climb to the financial peak, you´ve got to crawl out of the valley of debt. You will either voluntarily control your money now, or it will force its control on you later. The vast majority of people never arrive at their destination - not because they don´t have what it takes but because they don´t manage what they have. Jim Stovall has enjoyed success as an author, athlete, investment broker, and entrepreneur while dealing with the challenge of blindness. During his remarkable life, Jim has been a national champion Olympic weightlifter, as well as the author of 20 books. In addition to his personal achievements, Jim was honored as the 2000 International Humanitarian of the Year, joining Jimmy Carter, Nancy Reagan, and Mother Teresa as a recipient of this prestigious award. As cofounder and president of the Emmy Award-winning Narrative Television Network (NTN), Jim has also helped make movies and television accessible for America´s 13 million blind and visually impaired people and their families. 1.

Autism shakes up your world. It has changed my life and I wasn´t even the one diagnosed with it. My brother´s name is Ethan Wolfgang, but we call him Deets. He is one of the greatest gifts my family has ever received. And one of the most challenging. So begins Zack Peter´s memoir of his family´s struggle to cope with his brother´s autism. And thus began Peter´s mission to ensure that his brother will one day live an independent life. He candidly describes his attempts to get his family on board with Ethan´s biomedical treatment and his fight against their reluctance. He relates how his life changes when he comes up with the idea of hosting a local fundraisers, which then throws him into the world of activism. He describes how this leads to his becoming a full-time advocate for autism. As everything in his life becomes more and more centered around the spectrum, Peter faces the personal struggle of being a voice for the cause while trying to maintain his own identity. Sharing the wisdom he´s learned in a voice that´s equal parts snark and heart, Peter offers a memoir that´s as funny as it is poignant, filled with no-nonsense advice and what he calls ´´The Hope Rules,´´ which are designed to help preserve sanity, dignity, and the will to stay strong. Whether you know someone with autism or not, Zack Peter´s refreshing take on his life as a sibling and activist serves as inspiration to persevere, even when the odds seem impossibly long. It´s everything you need to help keep your head up like the bottom of your glass. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aaron Landon.
