Alyssa began writing pop culture criticism at 8, when she began a children's book review column for her local paper, taking payments in gift certificates to the neighborhood bookstore. Since then, her interests have expanded to include Atlanta hip-hop, procedural television shows, and action movies she watches without any sense of irony whatsoever. Her writing on culture has appeared in The Daily Beast and the American Prospect , and she has written about politics and the executive branch for The New Republic and National Journal .

When Fans and Artists Collide | The Blog Herald
Earlier this week, a fan of the British TV series Dr. Who was forced to take a portion of his site offline after receiving a cease and desist letter from the BBC. However, Mazzmatazz, the fan is question, was not posting clips onto YouTube or making pirated copies of DVDs, but rather, posting knitting patters to let other fans make their own Dr. Who characters . In a similar, but much more famous case, J.K. Rowling has sued one of her fans , the author of the Harry Potter Lexicon site , in order to prevent a book from being published using information from her series. These are just two examples of creators butting heads with ... market research, surveys and trends
Extremes collide
I'm perversely interested in the fluid relationship between the political extremes. This post is about some recent correspondence that illustrates it. Paul Berman noted in his seminal book Terror and Liberalism that Holocaust denial began on the French Left. That may seem odd, but it's true. The founding father of Holocaust denial was a Socialist deputy in the National Assembly called Paul Rassinier. Extraordinarily, Rassinier had himself been imprisoned in Buchenwald. In a reverse of the Alger Hiss syndrome, where a guilty man apparently managed to convince himself - and some credulous observers - of his ... market research, surveys and trends

Noneconomic damages should be capped and objective safety standards established in order to provide a safe harbor for manufacturers from unfair liability. This essay is available here as an Adobe Acrobat PDF. No. 1, January 2007 Another jury verdict, another arbitrary multimillion-dollar award. Unbounded noneconomic damages are distorting the legal system by undermining constitutional and legal caps on punitive damages and by encouraging plaintiffs’ lawyers to pursue cases of questionable merit.

The rise of the literary night out
Forget book clubs – discerning readers now prefer literary salons and themed evenings where best-selling authors perform for their fans. By Anna Goodall It's a sunny Tuesday evening and I'm running late for my regular slot as co-host of the literary night, Literary Death Match. Stepping off the 73 bus, I almost collide with the crowd of punters streaming into the Old Queen's Head in Islington, London. Upstairs, the room is rammed, and I have just enough time to sink a vodka and tonic before taking to the stage beside writer and LDM creator, Todd Zuniga. The night, which Zuniga started in New York in 2006 and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Equal Writes: An LGBT Summer Reading List
When I was growing up and first realizing my sexuality I would frequently search out books with themes or characters that represented some aspect of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, to explore and learn more about the rich culture that I had begun to feel a connection with. As such, here are some suggestions for great books with LGBT themes and characters that you might like to read. While not in any particular order, I've picked out a few books from a spectrum of genres, and have followed that with a list of other books you might like to explore too. We've also got a couple of suggestions ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Any other famous works within works? | Ask MetaFilter
I remember, and know people who have memorized, the Gunslinger's Creed from the Stephen King books and the Litany Against Fear from the Dune books. They may be more famous than the books themselves. And I was wondering: is there anything else like that? A literary work inside and literary work that is more famous (or as famous) as the work containing it? For those who have no idea what I mean: I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I aim with my eye. I do not shoot with my gun; he who shoots with his gun has forgotten the face of his father. I shoot with my mind. I do not ...

I need the title and/or author to a fiction book. The story is a farmer in New Zealand takes off in his light aircraft for market and has to fly through a busy airport airspace.
