I am Tara Zain.<br /><br />Human rights attorney, the Commander to my colleagues in international affairs, and fiancee to the most powerful man in the country.<br /><br />I've learned love is a useless distraction. Money and status are the true motivators, and powerful alliances are much more important than romantic entanglements. My passion is my work, and nothing, not even the promise of happily-ever-after, will keep me from accomplishing my mission.<br /><br />This is why I've made a bargain with the one man who shattered my heart years ago. He's proposed that I stand by his side and foster the beginning of a new political dynasty. <br /><br />But I have secrets. <br /><br />Secrets that could destroy not only this man and the passion we've rekindled but the very laws of the nation he has sworn to uphold. <br /><br />I am Tara Zain. Future First Lady of the United States of America and COMMANDER.

Privacy: The Lost Right

The disturbing reality of contemporary life is that technology has laid bare the private facts of most people's lives. Email, cell phone calls, and individual purchasing habits are no longer secret. Individuals may be discussed on a blog, victimized by an inaccurate credit report, or have their email read by an employer or government agency without their knowledge. Government policy, mass media, and modern technology pose new challenges to privacy rights, while the law struggles to keep up with the rapid changes. <br /><br /> <em>Privacy: The Lost Right</em> evaluates the status of citizens' right to privacy in today's intrusive world. Mills reviews the history of privacy protections, the general loss of privacy, and the inadequacy of current legal remedies, especially with respect to more recent privacy concerns, such as identity theft, government surveillance, tabloid journalism, and video surveillance in public places. Mills concludes that existing regulations do not adequately protect individual privacy, and he presents options for improving privacy protections.<br />

<div>Many<br />proclaimed the “end of television” in the early years of the twenty-first<br />century, as capabilities and features of the boxes that occupied a central<br />space in American living rooms for the preceding fifty years were radically<br />remade. In this revised, second edition<br />of her definitive book, Amanda D. Lotz proves that rumors of the death of<br />television were greatly exaggerated and explores how new distribution and<br />viewing technologies have resurrected the medium. Shifts in the basic practices<br />of making and distributing television have not been hastening its demise, but<br />are redefining what we can do with television, what we expect from it, how we<br />use it—in short, revolutionizing it.<br /></div><br /><div><br /></div><br /><div> </div><br /><div>Television,<br />as both a technology and a tool for cultural storytelling, remains as important<br />today as ever, but it has changed in fundamental ways. <em>The Television Will Be Revolutionized </em>provides a sophisticated<br />history of the present, examining television in what Lotz terms the<br />“post-network” era while providing frameworks for understanding the continued<br />change in the medium. The second edition addresses adjustments throughout the<br />industry wrought by broadband delivered television such as Netflix, YouTube,<br />and cross-platform initiatives like TV Everywhere, as well as how technologies<br />such as tablets and smartphones have changed how and where we view. Lotz begins<br />to deconstruct the future of different kinds of television—exploring how<br />“prized content,” live television sports and contests, and linear viewing may<br />all be “television,” but very different types of television for both viewers<br />and producers.<br /></div><br /><div> </div><br /><div>Through<br />interviews with those working in the industry, surveys of trade publications,<br />and consideration of an extensive array of popular shows, Lotz takes us behind<br />the screen to explore what is changing, why it is changing, and why the changes<br />matter.</div><br /><p><img src="http://nyupress.org/teachguide/pdf_icon.gif" alt="" />   Instructor's Guide</p>
