Space, the final frontier. These are the voya... ...Wait, wait, wait! Yes, we all know the Enterprise and her crew will have another great adventure. It is easy to forget, however, that while the Enterprise and her crew do some cool things as they travel through the galaxy, there are some very cool things happening back on Earth in the 24th century. Humanity is starting to get things right. In America the invented problems that provide profit to a few and misery to most are gone: broken families, drop-out rates, food stamps, poverty, minimum wage, drug addiction, illegal immigrants, corporate greed, racism, student loans, da-dah, da-dah, da-dah-da-dah...they are all gone! These issues are no longer being used to tear us apart. We have stopped being puppets that dance on a string from the time we are born to the time we are laid to rest. Schools no longer indoctrinate. Education has transitioned from learning how to take tests to exploring each individual's abilities and interests. The practice of using classrooms to train children to become good workers has stopped. In the Star Trek universe students are not trapped by their age, special interest groups and politicians. Partisan politics and politicians are gone. Their whole system of working as hard as they can to maintain gridlock has become extinct. Politicians who listen to pocketbooks, cater to the powerful and bathe themselves in hypocrisy have been replaced by public servants who facilitate the will of the people. The media's talking heads have become extinct. Information and access to it is available to all citizens. Moreover, each citizen interprets events and makes judgements on his or her own. In the future we no longer need to be told how to think, what to feel and what to fear. Instead of treating viewers, listeners and readers like children the media simply report events. Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future is one full of promise. Americans have come together as one people. Skin color no longer defines race, but rather demonstrates the breadth of our one race...the human race. We have moved beyond the petty squabbles, the endless babble and the senseless division we see today. The puppet strings have been cut and the puppeteers have been retired. Imagine a society where each individual has the time, the talent and the tools necessary to explore his or her own dream! Our need to own cool things has been replaced by a need to do cool things. Imagine an America where poverty has been erased, and replaced by opportunity. Citizens challenge themselves and find satisfaction in the journey of each challenge. This book examines the vision of Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek and incorporates the values and goals of that society into an action plan to help us move our society forward. By citing specific examples from the various Star Trek franchises we can gain insight as to how to begin the process of change. Before we begin the change, before we boldly go anywhere however, we must learn to boldly stop what we are doing today. We must learn how to stop the madness, the anger and the hate. All of our efforts must focus on our children so we can prepare them for entry into the Federation. This book lays out a plan and begins that discussion. Are you ready? Engage!

A collection of essays from today’s most acclaimed authors—from Cheryl Strayed to Roxane Gay to Jennifer Weiner, Alexander Chee, Nick Hornby, and Jonathan Franzen—on the realities of making a living in the writing world. In the literary world, the debate around writing and commerce often begs us to take sides: either writers should be paid for everything they do or writers should just pay their dues and count themselves lucky to be published. You should never quit your day job, but your ultimate goal should be to quit your day job. It’s an endless, confusing, and often controversial conversation that, despite our bare-it-all culture, still remains taboo. In Scratch, Manjula Martin has gathered interviews and essays from established and rising authors to confront the age-old question: how do creative people make money? As contributors including Jonathan Franzen, Cheryl Strayed, Roxane Gay, Nick Hornby, Susan Orlean, Alexander Chee, Daniel Jose Older, Jennifer Weiner, and Yiyun Li candidly and emotionally discuss money, MFA programs, teaching fellowships, finally getting published, and what success really means to them, Scratch honestly addresses the tensions between writing and money, work and life, literature and commerce. The result is an entertaining and inspiring book that helps readers and writers understand what it’s really like to make art in a world that runs on money—and why it matters. Essential reading for aspiring and experienced writers, and for anyone interested in the future of literature, Scratch is the perfect bookshelf companion to On Writing, Never Can Say Goodbye, and MFA vs. NYC.

The hurdles that would only allow you to get popular, if the right people said your music was good enough, are gone. You can now get exposed to thousands of potential fans without investing 1% of what musicians used to by building a fanbase based on listeners love for your music. No more writing letters hoping that A&R writes you back. This book explains how you do it. While many books will tell you obvious information, legal mumbo-jumbo and marketing catchphrases that don’t help you get more fans. Our experience working with real bands - from upstarts like Man Overboard and Transit to legends like The Cure, The Misfits and Animal Collective, has led us to understand the insider tricks and ideas that go into some of the most important groups of our time. We produce records, do licensing deals, negotiate record contracts and get the musicians we work with written about on websites like Pitchfork and Vice. We have worked with bands who started off as nothing and became something. Unlike any other book written on the subject we have compiled the knowledge no one else has been willing to print in fear of obsoleting their own career. We give you thousands of ideas on how to get people to hear your music and turn them into fans who pay to support your music.
