Conscious Planet: Our
New Monthly Media Guide
Welcome back! A month has passed since our last
newsletter, but within that short period our focus has changed from ?shock and
awe? to ?turmoil and debate? -- turmoil in the Middle East and around the world,
and debate among the pundits about whether the war is moving as planned.
Whatever one?s views, it is clear that after the dot-com collapse, the
controversial presidential elections of 2000, 9/11, the global economic
slowdown, and the breakdown of decades-old transatlantic alliances, we have now
entered a new phase in one of the most dramatic periods in modern history. The
signs, though, don?t seem to be very encouraging. A lot of damage has already
been done. In addition, forecasts do not have enough visibility while the fog of
war clouds them.
To quote someone who has quite a bit of experience with forecasts, financial
astrologer Henry Weingarten states in his latest newsletter,
Next Week: ?Economically, the U.S. economy is now likely to slide
downhill instead of continuing to slowly improve. Whether the U.S. economy will
be in trouble beyond 2004 is an open question at this time.? In my view, this is
also true for the political landscape.
In the meantime, the Paraview community keeps busy. Two Paraview authors share
their views on Iraq.
describes his recent travel experience to the Middle East, and gives some
historical perspective to allied involvement in Iraq.
explains a possible reason why the U.S. seemed to anticipate Saddam Hussein?s
moves better during Gulf War I: the use of controlled remote viewers to gather
Furthermore, Paraview announced a new partnership with two other companies,
Publishing Dimensions and Content Directions, which will allow us to use Digital
Object Identifiers (DOIs) with our titles. This innovative technology will
benefit readers and authors alike in embedding more information about a title or
an author in each title. Have a look at our
which will show you how it works.
Last but not least, we are releasing three new titles this month. Our latest
title under the Paraview Pocket Book imprint,
Bigfoot! The True Story of
Apes in America is by noted cryptozoologist Loren Coleman. Coleman
will be speaking on ?Sex and Bigfoot? and signing copies of his books at the
fortean UnConvention in London later this month. Our second new book is
Catholics at a Crossroads,
by Eileen Flynn. Flynn analyzes the Catholic Church?s sexual abuse crisis and
coverup, and comes up with solutions to this crisis. And, finally,
Looking for God in All the
Wrong Places, by Marie Jones, is a spiritual field guide that
examines the people, places, and things we often mistake for our Higher Power.
With these developments and new books, our minds will be busy in the days and
weeks to come.
See you next month.
