    Console Wars-Sega vs Nintendo-NPR Book of the Year-Blake Harris

    in Books

    Console Wars author Blake J Harris Live with Scott Cluthe


    NPR: Best book of the Year !


    Seth Rogen from the forward: "The "Console Wars" between Nintendo and Sega is what began a series of events that will lead to the end of humanity as we know it."  (well of course!)


    Console Wars—a mesmerizing, behind-the-scenes business thriller that chronicles how Sega, a small, scrappy gaming company led by an unlikely visionary and a team of rebels, took on the juggernaut Nintendo and revolutionized the video game industry.


    In 1990, Nintendo had a virtual monopoly on the video game industry. Sega, on the other hand, was just a faltering arcade company with big aspirations and even bigger personalities. But that would all change with the arrival of Tom Kalinske, a man who knew nothing about videogames and everything about fighting uphill battles. His unconventional tactics, combined with the blood, sweat and bold ideas of his renegade employees, transformed Sega and eventually led to a ruthless David-and-Goliath showdown with rival Nintendo.


    The battle was vicious, relentless, and highly profitable, eventually sparking a global corporate war that would be fought on several fronts: from living rooms and schoolyards to boardrooms and Congress.


    Based on over two hundred interviews with former Sega and Nintendo employees, Console Wars is the underdog tale of how Kalinske miraculously turned an industry punchline into a market leader.


    Blake J. Harris is a writer and filmmaker based out of New York. He is currently codirecting the documentary based on this book, which is being produced by Scott Rudin, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg. He will also serve as an executive producer on Sony's feature-film adaptation of Console Wars.

    Join Dr. Angela Lauria as she interviews Jenn McRobbie on the publishing of her book, Why is She Acting So Weird? A Guide to Cultivating Closeness When a Friend is in Crisis. 


    Jenn was inspired to write her book on friendship when she thought about starting a memoir. To begin, she created a timeline of stories of her life and realized that the stories dealt more about her friendships rather than herself. When she realized that her book would be about friends, her focus became clear and she was able to write it in only three months.

  • Book of Daniel - Chapter 9

    in Spirituality

    Daniel 9:1-27 (KJV)
    1 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans;
    2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
    3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:
    4 And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;
    5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:
    6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
    7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.
    8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.
    9 To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;
    10 Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.

    Empress Simone Shares Her Book, Geena - A Bronx Chick’s Story

    in Writing

    Empress Simone credits her parents for giving her the drive to pursue her dreams. A lifelong resident of the Bronx in New York City, Empress Simone devotes her time to family, education, and writing. 


    During childhood Empress Simone realized she loved to write and would pen plays, song lyrics, poems, and short stories. She wishes to throw her hat in the editing arena and help bring fellow-authors visions and literary work to readers and supporters. An Administrative Assistant she is passionate about her love for others and tries to help in any capacity that she can. Empress Simone, an avid reader and old school Hip-hop fan, is also a budding genealogist who extensively studies and researches her ancestors/family history.


    Excerpt from Geena: A Bronx Chick’s Story


    Meet Geena Samuels, a single mother raising two sons in one of New York City’s toughest boroughs. This Bronx Story is nothing like you’ve ever witnessed before. Geena encounters violence and betrayal from those who claim to love her most. She is on a roller coaster ride of a struggle to make ends meet and find true love with emotions raging between love and anger that sometimes lead to war.


    During it all the one saving grace seem to be Geena’s sponsor who helps with the bills and Geena’s expensive shopping habits. However his real intentions are covered by the financial security he provides. Will Geena survive the game, or the web of deceit her best friend Abby or Sponsor have woven, or will naivety and greediness be the cause of her demise?

    THERE WAS ALREADY ONE REALITY! WAS THERE NEED FOR ANOTHER?

    in Religion

    WOE on them who trust OTHER COUNSEL!   For all else is VAIN!   From BEGINNING, there has NEVER been any OTHER SAVING CONSCIENCE! 

    Mat 15:7  "You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,  15:8  'THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME.  15:9  'BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.


    Isa 30:1  WOE to the rebellious children, says YAH, who take COUNSEL, but NOT from ME; and who offer wine offerings, but not of MY spirit, that they may add SIN to SIN;   2  Who go down to Egypt, and have not asked at MY mouth, to strengthen themselves by the strength of Pharaoh, and to take shelter in the shadow of Egypt!  3  Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be to your shame, and the shelter of the shadow of Egypt to your confusion.  4  For while Pharaoh is in Zoan, his princes and ambassadors shall act deceitfully.  5  They go to a people that CANNOT PROFIT THEM, neither be a help nor a profit, but SHAME and reproach.  7  For the Egyptians shall help in VAIN and in FALSEHOOD; therefore I have warned them, for this their TRUST is in VAIN. 8  Now come, write it on these tablets and on the book of their covenant, that it may be for the time to come, for a testimony for ever and ever; 

    Isa 40:15  Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing. 17  All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.
