Trickle Down Tyranny is the single book you need to stop Obama´s emerging dictatorship before we lose all of our constitutional, God-given rights. These pages show you the dangerous laws and powergrabs of the Obama administration… and what we can do to stop this leftist gang from seizing another term in office. Will President Obama transform the greatest engine of freedom the world has ever known into a Stalin-like regime? Trillions in new debt. His solution? Print more money, crippling American taxpayers and our children with unlimited debt. He´s hobbled the most powerful military in the world, rendering us unable to maintain our advanced weapons and technological advantages over the enemies at our gates. And what does Obama do as Iran spews genocidal dictates? He continues to push a ´´diplomatic´´ solution. Obama is transforming us into a second-class nation, with communists and Islamists given free rein to expand their power. As Obama accrues power with little opposition and his oppression creeps down from the top, the American people must stop the tyranny! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Larkin.

Big Data is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it. - Dan Ariely´´Within two days, we produce the same amount of data generated by at the beginning of the civilization until 2003,´´ said Eric Schmidt in 2010. According to IBM, by 2020 the world will have generated a mass of data on the order of 40 zettabyte (1021Byte). Just think, for example, of digital content such as photos, videos, blogs, posts, and everything that revolves around social networks; only Facebook marks 30 billion pieces of content each month shared by its users. The explosion of social networks, combined with the emergence of smartphones, justifies the fact that one of the recurring terms of recent years in the field of innovation, marketing, and IT is big data.The term big data indicates data produced in massive quantities, with remarkable rapidity, and in the most diverse formats, which require technologies and resources that go far beyond conventional data management and storage systems. In order to obtain from the use of this data the maximum results in the shortest possible time or even in real time, specific tools with high computing capabilities are necessary. In the United States, the term has become a key concept in 2009 when President Obama created the position of Chief Technology Officer as part of his America´s Innovation Strategy.But what does the big data phenomenon mean? Is the proliferation of data simply the sign of an increasingly invasive world? Or is there something more to it? Pat Nakamoto will guide you through the discovery of the world of big data, which, according to experts, in the near future could become the new gold or oil, in what is a real data-driven economy. 1.

In July 2004, Barack Obama electrified the Democratic National Convention with an address that spoke to Americans across the political spectrum. One phrase in particular anchored itself in listeners´ minds, a reminder that for all the discord and struggle to be found in our history as a nation, we have always been guided by a dogged optimism in the future, or what Obama called ´´the audacity of hope.´´ The Audacity of Hope is Barack Obama´s call for a different brand of politics - a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and alienated by the ´´endless clash of armies´´ we see in congress and on the campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility of spirit at the heart of ´´our improbable experiment in democracy.´´ He explores those forces - from the fear of losing to the perpetual need to raise money to the power of the media - that can stifle even the best-intentioned politician. He also writes, with surprising intimacy and self-deprecating humor, about settling in as a senator, seeking to balance the demands of public service and family life, and his own deepening religious commitment. At the heart of this book is Barack Obama´s vision of how we can move beyond our divisions to tackle concrete problems. He examines the growing economic insecurity of American families, the racial and religious tensions within the body politic, and the transnational threats - from terrorism to pandemic - that gather beyond our shores. And he grapples with the role that faith plays in a democracy - where it is vital and where it must never intrude. Underlying his stories about family, friends, and members of the Senate is a vigorous search for connection: the foundation for a radically hopeful political consensus. A public servant and a lawyer, a professor and a father, a Christian and a skeptic, and above all a student of history and human nature, Barack Obama has written a book of transforming power. Only by returning to the principles that gave birth to our Constitution, he says, can Americans repair a political process that is broken, and restore to working order a government that has fallen dangerously out of touch with millions of ordinary Americans. Those Americans are out there, he writes - ´´waiting for Republicans and Democrats to catch up with them.´´ From the Hardcover edition.
In this bestselling book Obama discusses the importance of empathy in politics, his hopes for a different America with different policies, and how the ideals of its democracy can be renewed. With intimacy and self-deprecating humour, Obama describes his experiences as a politician, about balancing his family life and his public vocation. His search for consensus and his respect for the democratic process inform every sentence. A senator and a lawyer, a professor and a father,a Christian and a sceptic, Barack Obama has written a book of transforming power that will inspire people the world over.
