Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.
Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.

“STRATEGIZING SECURITY MANAGEMENT: From timeless classics to modern literature, this is the book that brings them all together” by Khen Han Ming
This book pulls from the combined information and knowledge offered by some of the top authors and publications on this subject, from The Art of War by Sun Tzu and Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai by Yamamoto Tsunetomo to The Art of Intrusion: The Real Stories Behind the Exploits of Hackers, Intruders & Deceivers by Kevin D. Mitnick.
What makes this book so powerful is that it pulls the highlights from all of these works, and many more, to bring you a quick reference guide that is varied and beneficial from many different standpoints.
A true poet or singing artist may experience writers block or may stop writing due to a tragic event. However, their soul has such a great amount of passion or fiery for their craft; they cannot cease. When a passionate artist, poet, or motivational speaker writes a verse, quote, or poem, and it’s meant to be released to the world, whether it be about a personal experience, event seen on the news, a reflection of their environment, or what’s being displayed on the internet, it doesn’t matter if the writer expresses themselves via electronic devices or ink it on paper. The importance of conveying that influential message becomes such a priority, it almost feels like a news reporter reporting a headline that may touch the lives of people watching. Till The Ink Is Done is a book with collections of influential poems and quotes that speak messages that touch our lives as humans everyday, from struggles, betrayal, relationships, working hard, successes, self achievement, and overcoming the odds like the 300 Spartan men that fought their enemies in Thermopylae.
Cogito ergo sum (I think, therefore I am), but who does one become when the thought is hijacked? We are no longer a society ruled by geographic lines in the sand laid by men who won and lost wars 50 years ago. Rather, we are a society governed by ideological variation, led by chieftains in a digital tribal society. This is the new world order and the precise opposite of what the self-proclaimed elites had planned. The United Nations is no more relevant than Facebook. The new covert is overt. WikiLeaks is more in the know than an intelligence analyst in the CIA, and Google’s dragnet surveillance censorship algorithm has become the new gatekeeper of critical information that could lead society into a new renaissance. The power shift has gone from a focus on kinetic controls to an all-out battle for the psychological core of the global population. Digitized influence operations have become the new norm for controlling the electoral process, public opinion, and narrative.
The potency of the actors in this space is fierce. Both nation-states and special interest groups in every conceivable variation are battling for the pinnacle position in controlling the public narrative, and though there are many initiatives operating in this space, few understand the actual process for harnessing a consistent grip on the narrative in this digital age. While most actors attempt to use archaic relics, such as the mainstream media, nation-states and sophisticated special interests are gunning for the almighty meme. The meme is the embryo of the narrative, and there is a process to harnessing its potency. Ideas are the composition of memes. Belief systems are the composition of ideas. Belief systems and their reinforcement create the narrative. Control over the meme renders control of the narrative; thus, he who controls the meme controls the population. Therefore, the objective is not to focus on control of the narrative; rather, the hyper-focus has become the creation, mutation, expansion, and replication of the meme.
The mind is the new war space, and the meme is both a subliminal hand grenade and the new nuclear weapon. Psychographic targeting renders the expedience of parasitically embedding the meme within the vast labyrinth of the mind….
