Snapchat drawings Are you interested in social media success stories? Here's a living your dreams story that should inspire everyone - the living your dreams story of CyreneQ, a modern Cinderella fairy tale. (See: "Here’s how a 26 year-old is making up to $30,000 per Snap on Snapchat", by Morgan Linton, co-founder of Fashion Metric, November 30, 2016) Creative snapchats & funny snapchat drawings: The next time you are sitting in a long, boring meeting and your mind starts to wander might be the very moment you find your destiny. That is exactly what happened to Cyreneq who began doodling funny Snapchat drawings during a particularly snoozy conference room session. Soon after, she went on to rule that burgeoning social media platform with her Snapchat art and her funny Snapchat drawings. Cyrene Quiamco has become a prominent personality with her creative Snapchats on a social media platform that is designed to make content disappear. Since joining Snapchat, Quiamco (who goes by "CyreneQ" across most social media) has amassed a following for her whimsical Snapchat art ? from celebrity portraits to collages of Disney characters ? and interactive creative Snapchats. She engages her community with her highly imaginative and appealing art, quizzes, games and questions, transforming a series of short-lived snaps into a conversation. She's also the creator of The11thSecond.com, a blog and community for creators of Snapchat art to share their work off the platform. Award-winning CyreneqQ was recently nominated for the Shorty Award which recognizes the best in social media. Living your dreams - Do what you love: This modern fairy tale story (complete with Disney Princess self-portraits of the artist) starts in the Philippines where her family comes from. Cyrene gets her moxie, drive, spirit of self-invention and incredible work ethic from her mom, whom she counts as a main inspiration to be fearless and go for living your dreams. As she puts it, “I've always been an artist ever since elementary school, but I didn't really know how to apply that to the real world.” How she applied her artistry and originality to the modern world of social media is one of the most fantastic social media success stories of the 21st century. Do what you love the money will follow: Cyrene's Cinderella "living your dreams" story is one that will have you dusting off your dreams. Cyreneq reminds us all of the power of our own imagination.

Holy Terrors Second Edition

Holy Terrors Second Edition

It is tempting to regard the perpetrators of the September 11th terrorist attacks as evil incarnate. But their motives, as Bruce Lincoln’s acclaimed Holy Terrors makes clear, were profoundly and intensely religious. Thus what we need after the events of 9/11, Lincoln argues, is greater clarity about what we take religion to be. Holy Terrors begins with a gripping dissection of the instruction manual given to each of the 9/11 hijackers. In their evocation of passages from the Quran, we learn how the terrorists justified acts of destruction and mass murder “in the name of God, the most merciful, the most compassionate.” Lincoln then offers a provocative comparison of President Bush’s October 7, 2001 speech announcing U.S. military action in Afghanistan alongside the videotaped speech released by Osama bin Laden just a few hours later. As Lincoln authoritatively demonstrates, a close analysis of the rhetoric used by leaders as different as George W. Bush and Osama bin Laden—as well as Mohamed Atta and even Jerry Falwell—betrays startling similarities. These commonalities have considerable implications for our understanding of religion and its interrelationships with politics and culture in a postcolonial world, implications that Lincoln draws out with skill and sensitivity. With a chapter new to this edition, “Theses on Religion and Violence,” Holy Terrors remains one of the essential books on September 11 and a classic study on the character of religion. “Modernity has ended twice: in its Marxist form in 1989 Berlin, and in its liberal form on September 11, 2001. In order to understand such major historical changes we need both large-scale and focused analyses—a combination seldom to be found in one volume. But here Bruce Lincoln . . . has given us just such a mix of discrete and large-picture analysis.”—Stephen Healey, Christian Century “From time to time there appears a work . . . that serves to focus the wide-ranging, often contentious discussion of religion’s significance within broader cultural dynamics. Bruce Lincoln’s Holy Terrors is one such text. . . . Anyone still struggling toward a more nuanced comprehension of 9/11 would do well to spend time with this book.”—Theodore Pulcini, Middle East Journal

The Second Plane

The Second Plane

“The English language bows deeper to Amis than anyone else.” The Daily Telegraph (UK) A master not only of fiction but also of fiercely controversial political engagement, Martin Amis here gathers fourteen pieces that constitute an evolving, provocative and insightful examination of the most momentous event of our time. At the heart of this collection is the long essay “Terror and Boredom,” an unsparing analysis of Islamic fundamentalism and the West’s flummoxed response to it, while other pieces address the invasion of Iraq, the realities of Iran and Tony Blair’s pallid departure from Downing Street. Amis’s reviews of pertinent books and films, from The Looming Tower to United 93, provide a wide-ranging survey of other responses to these calamitous issues, which are further explored in two short stories: “The Last Days of Mohammed Atta,” and “In the Palace of the End,” narrated by a Middle Eastern tyrant’s double whose duties include epic lovemaking, grotesque torture and the duplication on his own body of the injuries sustained by his alter ego in constant assassination attempts. Whether lambasted for his refusal to kowtow to Muslim pieties or hailed for his blunt common sense, Amis is indisputably a great pleasure to read–informed, elegant, surprising–and this collection a resounding contemplation of the relentless, manifold dangers we suddenly find ourselves living with.
