Features some of the most exciting and entertaining cricketers.
So you want to produce a short film. Or design a new line of jewelry. Or manufacture a revolutionary solar-powered garden sprinkler. There’s just one catch: You need $100,000 to bankroll your dream, and your checking account has barely enough to cover the rent. Enter Kickstarter.com—the phenomenal “crowdfunding” website launched in 2009 that brings venture capital to the masses. At Kickstarter, it’s not uncommon for entrepreneurs to raise $50,000, $100,000, $250,000, or more. All you need is a great idea—and The Kickstarter Handbook.
Business journliast Don Steinberg has interviewed dozens of artists and inventors who launched their passion projects online. Through their voices, you’ll explore all the strategies of a successful Kickstarter campaign. You’ll learn the elements of a compelling Kickstarter video, innovative ways to market your projects, tips for getting donors onboard, and the secrets of irresistible Kickstarter “rewards.” You’ll also discover what to do in a best-case scenario—when your project goes viral and the cash starts flowing in. On Kickstarter, it happens to a few lucky visionaries every week.
Here’s how to be one of them.
Furry, creepy, and seemingly sneaky, rats have a bad reputation for spreading disease and stealing food from under our noses. They are quite comfortable living in a number of environments, from swamps, to mountains, to basements. Color images show different species of rats, while informative text explains what a species is. A special section on pest control explains how rats were controlled in the Middle Ages and how they are controlled today. A section on lab rats even explains how these mammal pests have helped humans fight disease.
الفقر رأيته يعشش في مدرستي، وجيوب الصبية أمثالي ولقمة خبز جافة تتنازعها الأيدي في فرصة ما بين الحصص، وتفاجأت به ينال من هيبة الأساتذة في مدرستي، رأيتهم يطاردون لقمة العيش بعيدا عن السيل وسقفه، في أعالي المهاجرين والجبال الثلاثة المحظية، اللوبيدة والحسين وعمان. وجدت في اللوبيدة متنزها للأطفال مثلي..
وأنا طفل أيضا، نظرت إلى نفسي وثيابي بالية وقدماي حافيتان، تفرست وجوههم، والنعمة لا أفقه معناها، تنتقل بهم كجن خفي، بين السلالم والسحاسيل، إلى المراجيح، ومقاعد للراحة وبوظة وعصير، هم في ظل الأشجار يمرحون حول بركة ماء ونوافير، وقفت أنا على الباب، أتشبث بالبسطة، تظللني الشمس ويقطر العرق من جبيني وأنادي ترمس...
The publication from 1954 of Gerald Gardner's non-fiction works on witchcraft has led to the current public existence of two different trends of religious and magical belief and practice, both which identify themselves as "Wicca." One form places a strong emphasis upon the transmission of traditional practices and a form of initiatory lineage similar to that practised by Gardner himself. The other covers a wider range of views on each of these aspects, but with the most common position being a strong distance between the traditional practices-giving a greater importance to innovation-and a complete or near-complete abandonment of the concept of initiatory lineage.
Both trends often see themselves and each other as being within a wider religio-magical stream of Post-Gardnerian Pagan Witchcraft of which the innovative form is a larger part, though in different ways. The traditional view of the innovative form typically labels that form "Eclectic" even in cases where the practitioners would understand "Eclectic" differently, and considers it to be something outside of what it terms "Wicca." The innovative form generally labels all Post-Gardnerian Pagan Witchcraft, or beyond, as "Wicca," and as such recognizes all traditional practitioners as Wiccan but does not generally make more significant distinctions between the various schools. The traditional stream considers the differences between the two streams as significant to the point of typicality while the innovative stream considers the differences as much important. This book examines the differences and offers insights into both."
