The Age of Cryptocurrency

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/the-age-of-cryptocurren...
Bitcoin became a buzzword overnight. A cyber-enigma with an enthusiastic following, it pops up in headlines and fuels endless media debate. You can apparently use it to buy anything from coffee to cars, yet few people seem to truly understand what it is. This raises the question: Why should anyone care about bitcoin? In The Age of Cryptocurrency, Wall Street journalists Paul Vigna and Michael J. Casey deliver the definitive answer to this question. Cybermoney is poised to launch a revolution, one that could reinvent traditional financial and social structures while bringing the world's billions of "unbanked" individuals into a new global economy. Cryptocurrency holds the promise of a financial system without a middleman, one owned by the people who use it and one safeguarded from the devastation of a 2008-type crash. But bitcoin, the most famous of the cybermonies, carries a reputation for instability, wild fluctuation, and illicit business; some fear it has the power to eliminate jobs and to upend the concept of a nation-state. It implies, above all, monumental and wide-reaching change-for better and for worse. But it is here to stay, and you ignore it at your peril. Vigna and Casey demystify cryptocurrency-its origins, its function, and what you need to know to navigate a cyber-economy. The digital currency world will look very different from the paper currency world; The Age of Cryptocurrency will teach you how to be ready.

Lay Ecclesial Ministry

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/lay-ecclesial-ministry-2...
The role of lay ecclesial ministers-professionally prepared laity who serve in leadership roles-is becoming critically more important in the life of the Catholic church. In Lay Ecclesial Ministry, theologians and pastoral leaders from diverse disciplines provide a deeper understanding, envision future direction, and offer inspiration for these new ministers and the community of the church. Building on the themes of the first official document addressing lay ecclesial ministry, Co-workers in the Vineyard of the Lord, approved by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in 2005, this book delves deeply into key topics. Authors reflect on dimensions of the Catholic tradition to enrich our understanding of this new reality of lay ministry in the church, to envision future developments, and to offer inspiration. Contributors draw on a variety of theological perspectives, including canon law, church history, ecclesiology, liturgy, and scripture, to ground understanding of lay ecclesial ministry within the Catholic tradition and to chart direction for further response to this newly emergent ministry. The book also offers inspiration and models of service to lay ministers, looking to stories of the saints and communities of vowed religious. Lay Ecclesial Ministry is an essential resource for the Catholic community in understanding and building upon this new and increasingly important component of church life.

Catherine Forsythe is a Sci-fi spouting geek who thinks an Angel plays songs for her on the radio whenever she needs a lift. Michael Casey is an aspiring rock guitarist with a past full of rumors and a fervent wish for a fresh start. Jason King is a rising high school basketball star with all the right answers and money to burn. The world as Catherine, Michael and Jason know it is about to end. Half the time, Catherine thinks she has an Angel who plays songs for her on the radio whenever she needs a lift-songs with the perfect lyrics to get her through the day. The other half, she thinks that's crazy. Then Michael Casey walks back into her life. Michael's life is in ruins, and he just wants to start over, but when his fresh start ends in his tragic death, and his ghost becomes trapped in the woods near her home, Catherine is determined to free him. She's convinced the only way to do that is by helping him face his past-a past Michael is desperate to forget. Stonewalled by Michael at every turn, Catherine enlists her ex-boyfriend, Jason King, to help her dig deeper, but as they close in on Michael's horrific secret, the demon-filled nightmares Catherine had as a child return, and Jason falls mysteriously ill. As both their lives unravel, Catherine begins to wonder if her music-loving Angel has a counterpart-a much darker one.

MURDER BY THE YARD

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/murder-by-the-yard...
In the turbulent Chicago of 1917, attorney Nora Wolfe Walker must defend a black man accused of the brutal murder of an Irish union leader in order to prevent a racial blood bath. In the midst of the heated and publicized trial, Nora finds more than just a friend in Sergeant Michael Francis Casey, a handsome Irish cop who believes as Nora that the truth may only lie in the murky corridors of city hall. Gang leader and future mayor, Richard J. Daley, is a prime suspect in the murder, and a young mobster, Alphonse Gabriel Capone, becomes an unexpected ally. In a city pressed into a world war and riddled with corruption, Nora and Michael put their lives in jeopardy to discover the real killer and stop a deadly race war that could destroy Chicago and delay precious supplies from reaching our doughboys in the trenches of Western Europe.

The Social Organism

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/the-social-organism-2...
A must-read for business leaders and anyone who wants to understand all the implications of a social world."-Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney CompanyFrom tech visionaries Oliver Luckett and Michael J. Casey, a groundbreaking, must-read theory of social media-how it works, how it's changing human life, and how we can master it for good and for profit. In barely a decade, social media has positioned itself at the center of twenty-first century life. The combined power of platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and Vine have helped topple dictators and turned anonymous teenagers into celebrities overnight. In the social media age, ideas spread and morph through shared hashtags, photos, and videos, and the most compelling and emotive ones can transform public opinion in mere days and weeks, even attitudes and priorities that had persisted for decades. How did this happen? The scope and pace of these changes have left traditional businesses-and their old-guard marketing gatekeepers-bewildered. We simply do not comprehend social media's form, function, and possibilities. It's time we did. In The Social Organism, Luckett and Casey offer a revolutionary theory: social networks-to an astonishing degree-mimic the rules and functions of biological life. In sharing and replicating packets of information known as memes, the world's social media users are facilitating an evolutionary process just like the transfer of genetic information in living things. Memes are the basic building blocks of our culture, our social DNA. To master social media-and to make online content that impacts the world-you must start with the Social Organism. With the scope and ambition of The Second Machine Age and James Gleick's The Information, The Social Organism is an indispensable guide for business leaders, marketing professionals, and anyone serious about understanding our digital world-a guide not just to social media, but to human life today
