Canada Revenue Agency Issues Warning Regarding Emails

Teens Gone Wired – Are You Ready By Lyndsay Green – Book Review

Title: Teens Gone Wired: Are You Ready?
Author: Lyndsay Green
Publisher: Thomas Allen Publishers
Published: 2011
Paperback, 280 Pages
Cover Price: $19.95

Without a doubt, Teens Gone Wired: Are You Ready? by Canadian author, researcher and sociologist Lyndsay Green should be required reading for all parents. While both of my kids are well past their teen years and have been wired for years, this book still contains a lot of important information about one of the greatest challenges on being a parent: communication. I would go so far as to also recommend this book to teachers and caregivers who also play a part in the upbringing of our future generations. Read the rest of this entry »

Either way, it’s not too late to read Powerful Exhibit Marketing – The Complete Guide To Successful Trade Shows, Conferences and Consumer Shows by Canadian exhibit marketing specialist Barry Siskind. I picked this book up at the Wiley Canada booth at last year’s SIGGRAPH conference in Vancouver, wishing as I read it that I’d seen it before the conference – but we are now well-prepared for 2014 when SIGGRAPH returns, as well as any other event we may participant in as either exhibitor or attendees.
