In a handy, take-anywhere format this book, revised from The Photographer's DSLR Pocketbook for the mirrorless age (not forgetting SLRs), gives the reader the benefit of Michael Freeman's decades of professional experience. Opening with the anatomy of a digital camera, the book then covers settings, exposure, capture and image workflow, clarifying the operations of your camera and allowing you to operate it with speed, confidenceand accuracy. Michael's own photography and diagrams illuminate his points perfectly, making this an attractive and informative read.

Description : Born into a working-class family in Caterham, Surrey, in 1949, Bill attended the Guildford School of Dance and Drama before embarking on a two-year theatre stint in Liverpool. His London stage debut came in 1977 at the National Theatre, and many more theatre, radio and television appearances followed, including radio performances of Yes Minister for the BBC. He has said that the job that launched his career was 1991 BBC series The Men's Room. In 1998, he first came to international prominence with his role as a washed-up rock star in Hollywood film Still Crazy.But it was the Richard Curtis smash hit Love Actually, in 2004, that really propelled Bill into the limelight - many though that his performance as shameless old rocker Billy Mack was one of the best of the whole film, and it earned him a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor. Since then, Bill has earned yet more plaudits, starring in the acclaimed TV drama State of Play and Gideon's Daughter, and appearing once again on the silver screen in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy and hit comedy Rock the Boat.His wit, charm and on-screen presence have endeared him to legions of fans, and his film and TV work shows that he is an accomplished performer who can bring a touch of magic to any role. This is the fascinating story of one of the most intriguing and entertaining characters in show-business.

Description : THIS IS THE BOOK THAT INSPIRED THE MOVIE BY MICHAEL BAY – OPENS APRIL 26, 2013 “PAIN & GAIN is a mixture of FARGO and PULP FICTION. It's a dark comedy, and it's all true.” -- Michael Bay Daniel Lugo and Noel Adrian Doorbal were simple men: all they wanted—at first—was to be more pumped than the next guys, to own the workout floor, to look good. But then these pals, who worked as personal trainers at Miami’s Sun Gym, got a little itchy. The flash and cash flaunted by some of their clients was tempting....so tempting....and wouldn’t it be a piece of cake to get it for themselves? The Sun Gym Gang’s no-fail extortion scheme turned pretty crazy pretty fast. A half-dozen kidnapping attempts eventually netted an actual abduction, and kidnapping turned to murder, and then murder gone haywire, when one of Delgado and Lugo’s victims, who had been drugged, tortured and set up for death-by-car-crash, managed not only to live but to escape. But even then, the Sun Gym Gang didn’t get the message: they moved down their list of victims to murder a Golden Beach millionaire and his drop-dead (and soon she would be just that) Hungarian girlfriend, and then paraded around South Beach in the guy’s bright yellow Lamborghini practically under the nose of the Miami-Dade County police. What would it take for these boneheads to get caught? Because they would get caught.... The full account by the reporter that broke the story. PAIN & GAIN is now a hilarious, dark, pumped-up movie from action director Michael Bay. “Between the cases I’ve handled on my nationally syndicated television court show “Judge Alex,” and those I dealt with while I was on the bench in Miami’s 11th Judicial Circuit, I have tried over 1,500 cases as a judge..... there are “run of the mill” murders... at the opposite end of the spectrum, however, you have the cases that are so uncommon that everyone has to stop and take notice. The State of Florida v. Daniel Lugo, Noel Doorbal, John Carl Meese, et al. was such a case and I was the judge. In reading Collins’s PAIN & GAIN, I learned things I had never known before....” Judge Alex E. Ferrer

Description : An in-depth look into contemporary fascist and far-right extremist activity Conservatives who obsess about the threat of Muslim extremism are usually mute as regards the murderous chaos instigated by far-right extremists. In Jackals: The Stench of Fascism, journalist and author Alex Constantine explores today's fascism and its historical roots. He cites numerous examples of current fascist terrorism such as Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh; Kevin William Hardham, the 36-year-old Army field artillery veteran who planted a bomb along the Martin Luther King Day unity parade route in Spokane, Washington in 2011; Pittsburgh cop killer and white supremacist Richard Paplowski; neo-Nazi Keith Luke of Brockton, Massachusetts, arrested after shooting and killing three immigrants from Cape Verde; and antigovernment militiaman Joshua Cartwright, who murdered a pair of sheriff's deputies in Okaloosa County, Florida in 2009; as well as countless others.

Description : Philosophers have wrestled over the morality and ethics of war for nearly as long as human beings have been waging it. The death and destruction that unmanned warfare entails magnifies the moral and ethical challenges we face in conventional warfare and everyday society. Intrinsically linked are questions and perennial problems concerning what justifies the initial resort to war, who may be legitimately targeted in warfare, who should be permitted to serve the military, the collateral effects of military weaponry and the methods of determining and dealing with violations of the laws of war. This book provides a comprehensive and unifying analysis of the moral, political and social questions concerning the rise of drone warfare.
