    Story... It is about a story, the plot, and its characters. You, blog writers, are storytellers. Here is the twist, you are also one of the main characters. The blog has an angle for the plot and its perception of the world around it. Blog, as an entity, has an identity, the way of thinking and acting. It has ideas of its own. It is a great help to define these for the blog and yourself as the writer before you start chucking in your best ideas and publishing them.  
    Blogs want to be found on Google. For this, their content should be countered on the Reader. 
    Not everyone will use the same words to search. To search relevant content, they will use Semantic words. Your job is to write content which covers these Semantic search.  
    The reason I am writing this book is because it would make me feel so happy if I can help people understand the core concepts of blog writing. This was a struggle for me when I started writing blogs. I believe that knowing a basic working structure gives people the opportunity to leap forward faster. By helping others to decode basic concepts, I know I am also helping myself as I embark on another journey of taking responsibility. My mission is to make people learn some life-changing concepts quicker regardless of where they find themselves in life.

    Through his work in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Donald Laub changed the lives of thousands of people who had been shunned by society. His influence fostered the development of three key areas in the surgical profession: pioneering and influencing international humanitarian medical missions in the developing world, being at the forefront of gender affirmation surgery for transgender people since 1968, and the education and training of more than fifty plastic and reconstructive surgeons. 
    His unstinting efforts to surgically correct cleft palates gave new lives to thousands of children in developing countries. As one of the original surgeons to perform gender affirmation surgery, Laub not only continually improved on his methods, but he also became a tireless advocate for the rights of transgender people. His non-profit foundation has sent thousands of multidisciplinary teams to perform transformative and reconstructive surgery in the developing world. 
    Second Lives, Second Chances is a testament to how the determination of one person can bring others together to make a lasting difference in the world.

    Virtual Reality. It can take you to Worlds you've never imagined. It can also cause severe seizures, eye and muscle twitches and blackouts. And that's just the TIP of the  VR iceberg.  
    Some neuroscientists say it could potentially re-wire the brain. 
    So, why then is Virtual Reality being promoted as the greatest thing since sliced bread? 
    "Follow the Money" is the primary answer. VR is projected to be a multi-billion dollar industry. Thus, all the big dogs - Google, Apple, Facebook are all over it like a cheap suit. 
    In his last book - Virtual Reality - Robots Rule, Book Four, Investigative Journalist Atherton Cooper introduced you to the sc-fi world of VR. 
    Now, in this book, he takes you behind the scenes to meet the tech magicians, futurists and idealistic academics who are obsessively promoting "the next big thing."

    Artificial Intelligence's Role...

    It is not surprising that there is still a class of individuals who associate artificial intelligence (AI) with works of fiction. But, this perception is gradually losing ground with the frequent use of artificial intelligence in our daily chores, exhibiting a rational dimension. These days, artificial intelligence is all-encompassing phenomena that have an immense impact on social upbringing. 
    It is true that artificial intelligence ably finds its relevance in our mainstream culture as a revolutionary trend, but the idea is not new. The contemporary AI postulate came into being much earlier in 1956, so to say. However, it took decades of drudgery and back-breaking perseverance to transform the AI system into a technological revelation.

    Artificial Intelligence is likely to greatly increase our aggregate wealth, but it will also upend our labor markets, reshuffle our social order, and strain our private and public institutions. Eventually it may alter how we see our place in the universe, as machines pursue goals independent of their creators and outperform us in domains previously believed to be the sole dominion of humans. Whether we regard them as conscious or unwitting, revere them as a new form of life or dismiss them as mere clever appliances, is beside the point. They are likely to play an increasingly critical and intimate role in many aspects of our lives. The emergence of systems capable of independent reasoning and action raises serious questions about just whose interests they are permitted to serve, and what limits our society should place on their creation and use. Deep ethical questions that have bedeviled philosophers for ages will suddenly arrive on the steps of our courthouses.And the answers may surprise you.

    Floods of the Tiber in Ancient Rome

    A study of the impact of flooding on the ancient city during the classical period. 
     
    While the remains of its massive aqueducts serve as tangible reminders of Rome’s efforts to control its supply of drinking water, there are scant physical reminders that other waters sometimes raged out of control. In fact, floods were simply a part of life in ancient Rome, where proximity to the Tiber left a substantial part of the city vulnerable to the river’s occasional transgressions. 
     
    Here, in the first book-length treatment of the impact of floods on an ancient city, Gregory S. Aldrete draws upon a diverse range of scientific and cultural data to develop a rich and detailed account of flooding in Rome throughout the classical period. 
     
    Aldrete explores in detail the overflowing river’s destructive effects, drawing from ancient and modern written records and literary accounts, analyses of the topography and hydrology of the Tiber drainage basin, visible evidence on surviving structures, and the known engineering methods devised to limit the reach of rising water. He discusses the strategies the Romans employed to alleviate or prevent flooding, their social and religious attitudes toward floods, and how the threat of inundation influenced the development of the city’s physical and economic landscapes. 
     
    “Floods of the Tiber in Ancient Rome is that rare thing in scholarship, a work that genuinely fills a gap in the scholarly literature. Professor Aldrete has brilliantly illuminated an aspect of ancient Rome that was ever present to the city’s inhabitants but almost invisible to modern historians.” —Stanley Burstein, history teacher 
     
    “Raises important questions about the effects of flooding of the Tiber on the city of ancient Rome and its inhabitants and explores why Romans did not take more sweeping steps to reduce, if not eliminate, the dangers of urban flooding. There is no comparable book-length study of this topic, so this work fills a real need. It will be of interest not only to students of ancient history, but to hydrologists and students of urban studies as well. Certainly it will give us classicists much to think about in our assessment of urban life in ancient Rome.” —Harry B. Evans, Fordham University, author of Aqueduct Hunting in the Seventeenth Century
