The Book Of Luke: My Fight For Truth, Justice, And Liberty City

Luther 1

The raw and powerful true story of how one man invented Southern Hip-Hop, saved the First Amendment, and became a role model for his disenfranchised Miami neighborhood—living proof that one person can make a difference in the world.

A rap artist, wealthy musical entrepreneur, high school coach, and involved, active citizen—Luther Campbell’s life is a reflection of modern America. His is a tale that touches on the most pressing issues of our time: sex, creativity versus the corporate bottom line, conservative values and artistic freedom, personal rights, the gangster mentality of music companies, the rise of entrepreneurship, and the power—and responsibilities—of individuals to care for their neighborhoods, their country, and the people around them.

Born in Miami’s notorious Liberty City neighborhood, Campbell saw firsthand poverty, despair, and crime. He also discovered the gift of transformation we all possess—knowledge that has made him a passionate fighter willing to take on the most powerful forces in the name of justice and what’s right. His rap group 2 Live Crew and successful independent label made him a superstar and a multi-millionaire—and the center of enormous controversy.

The “King of Dirty Rap” who helped pioneer the worldwide phenomenon known as the Miami Bass sound infuriated the conservative mainstream and became Public Enemy #1 when hip hop crossed the color line into white America. Campbell spent over a million dollars of his own money fighting cops and prosecutors all the way to the Supreme Court to protect his—and every other artist’s—right to free speech, setting landmark legal precedents that continue to shape the entertainment industry today.

Twenty years later, Campbell uses his fame and fortune to give back to the community, saving young men from the street corners and fighting for his people. Passionate, transformative, and inspiring, The Book of Luke is his story—a living testament to hope and change.

Luther 3

Luther Campbell is the entrepreneur behind 2 Live Crew, owner of Luke Records, and former concert promoter. Luther Campbell was at one time arguably the nation’s most controversial hip-hop figure. Campbell formed the Miami-based quartet in 1987 and they were the centerpiece of a national campaign against allegedly obscene lyrics. He was embroiled in a volatile trial pitting him against then-Florida attorney general Jack Thompson.

Campbell later became a solo artist, issuing his own discs as Luke Featuring 2 Live Crew. He released Banned in the U.S.A., a parody of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.,” and I’ve Got Shit on My Mind. Campbell also published an autobiography and revamped 2 Live Crew, adding some fresh members.

They issued Back at Your Ass for the Nine-4, which peaked at number nine on the R&B chart in 1994. Campbell also won a Supreme Court decision that ruled that his parody of Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman” didn’t violate the copyright held by Acuff Rose. Campbell launched the career of R&B vocalists H-Town, issuing their debut LP on Luke Records. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

Are Robots Going To Take Away Our Jobs?

Robot

The birth of technology is not only amazing but also advancing rapidly daily. The power of the internet facilitates business throughout the world, creating flexible online or e-commerce services for manufacturers and consumers. It’s more amazing as robots are now able to do jobs of real people. For example robots are programmed to diffuse bombs and mine at the mine fields.

Japan has launched the first robot receptionist at work. She calls herself ChihiraAico. “My name is ChihiraAico. How do you do?” she says in Japanese, blinking and nodding to customers in the foyer of Mitsukoshi, Japan’s oldest department store chain.

Clad in an elegant traditional kimono, ChihiraAico—a name that sounds similar to a regular Japanese woman’s name—breaks into a rosy-lipped smile as would-be shoppers approach.

Unlike her real-life counterparts—almost always young women—who welcome customers to shops like this, ChihiraAico cannot answer questions, but simply runs through her pre-recorded spiel.

People look at humanoid robot 'Pepper'

Pepper the chatty robot makes friends on first day at work.

The android, with lifelike skin and almost (but not quite) natural-looking movements, was developed by microwaves-to-power stations conglomerate Toshiba, and unveiled at a tech fair in Japan last year.

“We are aiming to develop a robot that can gradually do what a human does,” said Hitoshi Tokuda, chief specialist at Toshiba.

“The standard of customer service in this Mitsukoshi flagship store is top quality and this is a great opportunity to see what role our humanoid can play in this kind of environment.”

ChihiraAico will receive customers at the store until Tuesday, before taking part in a series of promotional events over the upcoming Golden Week holidays.

A Glance At The Lives Of Great Minds Without Degree

Imagine a world without education or any educational institute, how would life be? Yet there are many people that have significantly created enormous impact in the world, without higher education.

Millionaire 3

Approved Index, a business to business platform researched on the world’s 100 richest people and discovered that thirty-two percent of them did not have a degree. Twenty-two percent who did attend university studied engineering, while twelve percent read business, making these the best degrees for those with billionaire aspirations. The arts accounted for only nine percent.

This article doesn’t mean that education or studying for a degree isn’t all that important, since it is easier for educated people to be successful than the uneducated. The research also revealed that North America accounted for 40 percent of the wealthiest people on the planet, while Europe provided 29 percent and Asia 22 percent.

Do you remember the lyrics of the song “You Can Get If You Really Want” by the Jamaican Reggae Star Desmond Dekker?”

“Persecution you must bear
Win or lose you’ve got to get your share
You’ve got your mind set on a dream
You can get it, though harder them seem now

But you must try, try and try
Try and try, you’ll succeed at last.”

The lyric of this wonderful song encourages and inspires. For whatever reasons which prevented you to attend a high school or attained a degree, that shouldn’t be a barrier towards your aims and objectives, once you’ve set your mind on a dream.

Bill Gates has been instrumental in creating and developing the home computing era that has thoroughly transformed nearly every aspect of our lives, from work to commerce to communication. Stepping down as CEO of Microsoft in 2000 after 25 years at the helm, he remained as chairman, a position he still holds.

Bill 1

This book paints a vivid picture of Bill Gates that covers his early life and his years as an inquisitive and adventurous student to his experiences as a budding entrepreneur and billionaire philanthropist who has often been listed among the richest individuals in the world.

Author Michael Becraft presents complete information on how Microsoft evolved, from the company’s inception until Gates’s departure from active leadership; documents the economic, ethical, financial, legal, management, and leadership applications inherent in Gates’s work; and examines the criticism that Gates’s actions and decisions have drawn throughout his career.

Inventor. Visionary. Genius. Dropout. Adopted. Steve Jobs was the founder of Apple and he was all of these things.  Steve Jobs has been described as a showman, artist, tyrant, genius, jerk. Through his life he was loved, hated, admired and dismissed, yet he was a living legend; the genius who founded Apple in his parent’s garage when he was just 21 years-old, revolutionising the music world. He single-handedly introduced the first computer that could sit on your desk and founded and nurtured a company called Pixar bringing to life Oscar wining animations Toy Story and Finding Nemo.

 

Bill 2

So how did the man, who was neither engineer nor computer geek change the world we live in, making us want every product he touched?

On graduation day in 2005, a fifty-year-old Steve Jobs said: ‘Today I want to tell you three stories from my life, That’s it. Just three stories’. The first story is about connecting the dots. My second story is about love and loss. My third story is about death.

This is his story… 

Critically acclaimed author Karen Blumenthal takes us to the core of this complicated and legendary man, from his adoption and early years through to the pinnacles of his career, his dismissal from his duties at Apple (for being too disruptive and difficult) to the graduation where he gave the commencement speech just 6 years before his death, giving life to what were soon to become some of most famous quotes of his career, ending with the message:

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.” “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”

Mark Zuckerberg, the youngest Person of the Year named by Time magazine since Charles Lindbergh in 1927, has grown in prominence as rapidly as the company he founded in a Harvard dorm room in 2004. The public’s appetite for insight into Facebook and its founder seems nearly insatiable. Curiosity abounds regarding Zuckerberg’s personality and management style, since fictional Hollywood portrayals and Wall Street whispers have painted a broad-strokes portrait of the young CEO that is at best only a fraction of the truth.

Bill 3

Given Facebook’s current $58 billion market capitalization and 845 million worldwide users, there is clearly more to Zuckerberg than any over-simplified caricature could convey. The Boy Billionaire: Mark Zuckerberg In His Own Words is the first and only book to detail the visionary thoughts and opinions of Facebook’s founder entirely through direct quotations from Zuckerberg himself. It is the most intimate and most authoritative look at the man behind Facebook’s once-a-generation success, the tech heir-apparent to Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

Like those two pioneering entrepreneurs, Zuckerberg has proven to be a calculating and sometimes ruthless strategist with a steadfast commitment to his vision. Facebook exists somewhere between a social utility and a model of 21st century business, leading next-gen tech companies through an economic climate still scarred by the dot-com bubble of the early 2000s, but increasingly driven by the inevitability of a global marketplace built on social media technology.

Facebook’s potential is unknown, but the key to its success depends on Zuckerberg’s own ideas and vision. This book serves up his most thought-provoking insights, as researched and chosen by George Beahm, the New York Times bestselling editor of I, Steve: Steve Jobs In His Own WordsThe Boy Billionaire: Mark Zuckerberg In His Own Words provides crucial illumination of Zuckerberg and the company he’s created, emphasizing insights, business strategies, and lessons learned. It is essential reading for people who seek innovative solutions applicable to their business, regardless of size, and makes an ideal gift or reference item for anyone interested in this newest of American business icon.
