September 4, 2021

first_img whatsapp SALES of electronic books (e-books)?have overtaken those of print books in the US for the first time ever, according to data published by the Association of American Publishers. Revenues from e-book sales soared 169 per cent to $90.3m (£60m) during January and February of this year while sales in paper books dropped 25 per cent to $81.2m over the same period.Publishers blamed the print decline on bad weather, low consumer confidence and Borders, the high street books retailer, going bust. E-books are overall more profitable due to low distribution costs.

Colin Kaepernick is writing a memoir to ‘inspire others to rise in action’

May 8, 2021

first_img Beau Lund February 13, 2020 /Sports News – National Colin Kaepernick is writing a memoir to ‘inspire others to rise in action’ FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailScott Clarke / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — More than three years after his silent protests rocked the NFL and the nation, Colin Kaepernick is writing a memoir about his activism which he hopes will “inspire others to rise in action.”“My protest was the culmination of years of thought and experiences, of learning and unlearning,” Kaepernick said in a statement. “I want to tell the story of my evolution, and the events that led me to protest systemic oppression, in hopes that it will inspire others to rise in action.”The former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers began taking a knee during the national anthem at games in 2016 as a way to protest police brutality against black people in the U.S. His silent protests sparked a national conversation, and even President Donald Trump weighed in.After playing six seasons with the 49ers, and leading the team to the 2013 Super Bowl, Kaepernick severed his contract in 2017. He has not signed with a new team since.He is releasing the memoir this year through his newly-formed publishing company, Kaepernick Publishing, to “reinforce the importance of Black ownership,” according to a statement.He is also partnering with Audible, which will exclusively release the audio version, to create additional original audio projects with other authors and influential figures.Kaepernick added that he hopes to use the partnership between his publishing company and Audible to “elevate Black and Brown voices who can empower future generations.”Rachel Ghiazza, the SVP of content acquisition and development at Audible, said Kaepernick “takes listeners through the pivotal moments and experiences that inspired a national debate and cultural movement.”Kaepernick has previously been vocal about his desire to return to the NFL and filed a grievance against league owners in 2017, alleging they colluded to ensure he remains unsigned. The lawsuit was settled in February 2019.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.center_img Written bylast_img read more

Spanish oiler heads for second deployment with Canadian Navy

first_img Spanish oiler heads for second deployment with Royal Canadian Navy View post tag: Royal Canadian Navy Authorities View post tag: Spanish Navy The Spanish Navy auxiliary oiler and replenishment (AOR) ship ‘Patiño’ (A-14) set sail from Ferrol towards Halifax to cooperate with the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) in North-Western Atlantic waters.This will be the second time Patiño is working with the RCN after the first one took place in February and March 2016.This deployment is the Spanish Navy response to an RCN request given its present lack of replenishment at sea (RAS) capability.The purpose of the deployment with the Canadian Navy is to train RCN personnel in RAS techniques and in the protection of valuable naval units.In Halifax the Patiño will integrate into a US Navy and RCN Task Group to participate in the international manoeuvers Cutlass Fury, Frontier Sentenial and TGEX-616 in the east coast of North America.The AOR was commissioned into active service in 1995. With a complement of 150 people the ship can supply 9,000 m3 of fuel and 2,000 tons of food, ammunition and spare parts to other naval units at sea.The Patiño can also provide medical assistance thanks to her hospital facilities and logistic support capabilities in non-combatant scenarios like humanitarian aid and environmental defense operations.
