It’s a great resource to have at your fingertips for those who need a well-researched introduction into all things NFTs.” – Jeff Zirlin, Growth Lead and Co-Founder of Sky Mavis “This book is a great cheat sheet for investing in NFTs. It condenses 6 years’ worth of experience into one easy read.” – Benjamin Rameau, Co-founder of Jenny DAO The prolific rise of the Internet has given us many things but the one thing it lacked, was digital property rights. NFTs, however, change this. NFT is an abbreviation for Non-Fungible Token, a type of token that is built on top of the blockchain. Unlike other conventional cryptocurrencies (e.g., Bitcoin), which are fungible, NFTs are meant to record the ownership of a digital asset on the blockchain. This opens up the door to all kinds of revolutionary opportunities which was not possible before. NFTs are expected to grow exponentially in the coming years and form the foundation of the digital economy. You will learn about the different industries that NFTs have permeated, such as art, collectibles, metaverses, games, and more. NFTs have existed since 2014 but only became mainstream in 2021. Over that span of time, a lot of developments have taken place. Use this book to keep up with the scene and learn how NFTs are disrupting countless industries and even creating new ones. In this book, you will learn: - What are NFTs - The different industries which leverage NFTs - Step-by-step guides in creating and acquiring NFTs - Real-life use cases of NFTs and how you too can earn from opportunities within the space

The Ghosts of King's Lynn and West Norfolk

release date: Oct 07, 2021
The Ghosts of King's Lynn and West Norfolk
The ancient shipping port and market town of King''s Lynn is an often overlooked repository of ghostly tales and legends. Apart from a compilation of stories in a 1986 booklet, the tales connected to this town are frequently ignored in books covering the area. Indeed, the same can be said of West Norfolk which would seem to have a very sparse ghostly population if one were to go by previously published books. This book helps to address that misconception. The town, in fact the whole area, is replete with many dozens of stories dating from the 18th century to the present day. Considering its small size, King''s Lynn might even be one of the most haunted towns in the UK. This book details many stories that have accumulated over the decades; the alleged phantom fiddler said to have been heard exploring tunnels beneath a local park ... a mischievous ghost inhabiting a charity shop on a modern housing estate ... an evil spectre that wanted to push a bride-to-be down the stairs in her home to her death ... the less-than-truthful phantoms at an old RAF base ... and the antics of other worldly entities in care homes in the town. Comprising 306 pages (16 of which form a comprehensive index), most of the nearly 200 tales in this volume are being published in book form for the first time.

Titanic

release date: Apr 24, 2020
Titanic
On April 28th, 1912, two weeks after the calamity of the Titanic, the majority of the surviving crew returned to England aboard the SS Lapland. For two days in New York, they had been largely been prevented from talking by the White Star Line; now, upon their arrival in Plymouth, the Board of Trade acted to isolate them even further until their statements for the forthcoming British Inquiry had been collected. The incarceration was only halted thanks to the efforts of the press, public and the shipping union who succeeded in forcing an embarrassing capitulation - and the crew were granted their long denied freedom. What of their stories? The depositions given in Plymouth have long since vanished, leaving just the testimony of those few who were called before the inquiries, plus fragments in the contemporary press and private correspondence of the day. For the most part, much of what the crew did that night is lost. For the first time, this book collates the "unknown" tales of the crew, and includes dozens of newspaper interviews, letters and written statements, many of which have not been seen for over 100 years.

United We Stand Divided We Fall
In United We Stand Divided We Fall Garn Press has gathered together essays by great scholars and renowned teachers who oppose the direction in which President Trump is leading the country. These are essays, to quote George Lakoff, which frame American values accurately and systemically day after day, telling truths by American majority moral values. These are essays of protest against and resistance to Trump''s presidency, to his billionaire cabinet, to the privileging in the White House of white supremacists, the promulgation of "alternate facts," the denigration of media sources, the purges of State Department personnel, the gag orders at the EPA and scientists placed on "watch lists," the travel bans on people from wide swaths of U.S. society and on refugees ... the list is long. They are also essays that tackle the question of what we can do to stop Trump from becoming a fast moving catastrophe. When the hands of the Doomsday Clock were moved closer to midnight, President Trump was named specifically as an existential risk to humanity. There is no doubt that we must all act. The writers of conscience who have written this collection of essays are all actively engaged in opposing President Trump and their writings encourage us to participate in the resistance movement. Read with a pencil in hand. Make notes on what you can do to join aspects of the movement that reflects the needs and concerns of your community.

The Titanic and the Indifferent Stranger
Even the staunchest of landlubbers knows what rockets at sea mean... or do they? A short space of time after the fatal collision with an iceberg, the Titanic''s crew sent rockets aloft to attract the attention of a ship seen just a few miles. But that ship never responded ... and 1500 people died in the frigid waters. This book details the scandal of the Californian, blamed by many for being that very unresponsive stranger. Rockets were seen and ignored...but was the Captain guilty of mass murder? Did more than 1000 people needlessly die? Why was the wireless operator not awakened? Could the Californian have saved anyone? And why is this story, neglecting the ethical controversy surrounding salvage, the single most divisive issue in the Titanic research community?

21st Century Literacy

release date: Nov 09, 2008
21st Century Literacy
Renita Schmidt and P. L. Thomas The guiding mission of the teacher education program in the university where we teach is to create teachers who are scholars and leaders. While the intent of that mission is basically sound in theory—we instill the idea that teachers at all levels are professionals, always learning and growing in knowledge—that theory, that philosophical underpinning does not insure that the students who complete our program are confident about the act or performance of teaching. In our unique program, students work closely with one teacher and classroom for the entire senior year and then are supervised and mentored during their first semester of teaching; the program is heavily field-based, and it depends on the effectiveness of mentoring throughout the methods coursework and the first semester of full-time teaching. Students tell us this guidance and support is invaluable, and yet we feel the disjuncture between university and school just as many of you in more traditional student teaching settings. Students hear “best practice” information from us in methods classes and they receive ample exposure to the research supporting our field, but have a hard time implementing research-based practices in their cla- room settings and an even harder time finding it in the classrooms around them.

Ignoring Poverty in the U.S.

release date: Jan 01, 2012
Ignoring Poverty in the U.S.
Ignoring Poverty in the U.S.: The Corporate Takeover of Public Education examines the divide between a commitment to public education and our cultural myths and more powerful commitment to consumerism and corporate America. The book addresses poverty in the context of the following: the historical and conflicting purposes in public education-how schools became positivistic/behavioral in our quest to produce workers for industry; the accountability era-how A Nation at Risk through NCLB have served corporate interest in dismantling public education and dissolving teachers unions; the media and misinformation about education; charter schools as political/ corporate compromise masking poverty; demonizing schools and scapegoating teachers-from misusing the SAT to VAM evaluations of teachers; rethinking the purpose of schools-shifting from schools as social saviors to addressing poverty so that public education can fulfill its purpose of empowering everyone in a democracy; and reframing how we view people living in poverty-rejecting deficit views of people living in poverty and students struggling in school under the weight of lives in poverty. This work is intended to confront the growing misinformation about the interplay among poverty, public schools, and what schools can accomplish while political and corporate leadership push agendas aimed at replacing public education with alternatives such as charter schools. The audience for the publication includes educators, educational reformers, politicians, and any member of the wider public interested in public education.

Parental Choice?

release date: Jan 01, 2010
Parental Choice?
A volume in Critical Constructions: Studies on Education and Society Series Editor: Curry Stephenson Malott Education has rarely been absent from local and national public discourse. Throughout the history of modern education spanning more than a century, we have as a culture lamented the failures of public schooling, often making such claims based on assumptions instead of any nuanced consideration of the many influences on teaching and learning in any child''s life-notably the socioeconomic status of a student''s family. School reform, then, has also been a frequent topic in political discourse and public debate. Since the mid-twentieth century, a rising call for market forces to replace government-run schooling has pushed to the front of those debates. Since A Nation at Risk in the early 1980s and the implementation of No Child Left Behind at the turn of the twenty-first century, a subtle shift has occurred in the traditional support of public education-fueled by the misconception that private schools out perform public schools along with a naive faith in competition and the promise of the free market. Political and ideological claims that all parents deserve school choice has proven to be a compelling slogan. This book unmasks calls for parental and school choice with a postformal and critical view of both the traditional bureaucratic public school system and the current patterns found the body of research on all aspects of school choice and private schooling. The examination of the status quo and market-based calls for school reform will serve well all stakeholders in public education as they seek to evaluate the quality of schools today and form positions on how best to reform schools for the empowerment of free people in a democratic society.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus Volume 7

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus Volume 7
Buffy''s emotions run high after the tragic loss of her mother, but she still fights. She struggles with blood-starved vamps from another dimension and swarms of green demon children with a penchant for nibbling on faces, and, as barriers between alternate realities erode, nightmare versions of friends and long-dead enemies must be dealt with. Then Buffy''s own death -- having sacrificed herself for Dawn -- takes a toll on the Scoobies, as they deal with demons and crazed forest creatures in a tale by Amber Benson ("Tara") and Christopher Golden. When Buffy is restored to life, she undertakes a secret mission with Angel, and all the loose ends are tied up with Buffy''s trip to hell, bringing an end to an amazing four-year run of Buffy comics. * The Buffy Omnibus books collect the earliest Buffy comics and are an excellent precursor to Joss Whedon''s Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight series. * "There''s plenty of humor and action here. Lots of strange (and strangely fun) violence. And, for Slayer fans, Omnibus is an opportunity to run down memory lane and relive those early, exciting Slayer days." -- comicbookbin.com

Numbers Games
American schools are often the victims of numbers games because its education is in the hands of politicians, the populace, and pundits. How Americans view numbers, science, and research profoundly impacts the ability of politicians to manipulate our schools from pre-K through graduate education. Even in classrooms, teachers are routinely implementing flawed assessment strategies based on misguided assumptions about numbers and commonly held statistical truths. American educators need to step out from under the restrictive mandates of politicians and their growing mania for measuring students - they need to leave the numbers games behind and take control of their profession.
