Author Friends and Books

Author Friends and Books | Roadkill Marketing Cafe Insights and Foresights. | Scoop.it
Autographed books sold by the authors. Historical research.
Jim Allen, III's insight:

I hear there will be a movie made of this soon.  I am buying the book today, there has to be many stories in our families and friends similar to this.  I remember after my dad returned from Vietnam, when the Wa was over, we became friends with many Vietnemese families.   Being a military brat you grow up multicultural or did back in my day.  But remember after WWII millioms flocked to the US.  We asked for them, so many former enemies wound up friends.  Always its in the history.

 

 

 

"Like many Americans, I was brought up to believe that all German soldiers were Nazis, and that all German soldiers had a roll in the concentration camps. As I grew older, and read more about World War II, I realized that this was simply not the case, especially in regards to the typical German soldier (except in certain cases, i.e. the SS, etc.). Mr. Makos makes this point very clearly in the Intro to the book, a point which I think makes a great Intro into the book. I believe this will resonate with many readers."


I look forward to reading it.


Adam Makos is a journalist, historian, and editor of the military magazine, Valor. In his fifteen years of work in the military field, Makos has interviewed countless veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and present-day wars. He has flown a B-17 bomber, a T-38 fighter with the Air Force, and was one of the few journalists privileged to examine Air Force One with its pilots. In pursuit of a story, Makos met Presidents, had tea with Prince Charles, and toured the DMZ border in Korea with American troops. The high point of his work occurred in 2008, when Makos traveled to Iraq to accompany the 101st Airborne and Army Special Forces on their hunt for Al Qaeda terrorists.

I love this post!  One of the best and clear explanations about"title tags" with explanations and examples that I have seen in a long time!   why is this being scooped for Adland? There are many people who blog and love blogging on Adland and so it is fitting to put this here!  I know for myself,I had one heck of a time grasping the concept of SEO and things like title tags so having someone take the time and the effort to make my life a bit easier is worth its weight in gold!  

P.S.  I loved number #8  including the geographic location, I have noted far too many people do not include this!

It is sad that this is a problem for the unemployed.  The fact that you have been unemployed for a longer period of time in this market should not be held against you.  Plus this puts a hole in the theory that the workforce is unqualified for the jobs available.  It actually shows bias.
