You know the old saw: you only get one chance to make a first impression.

Nothing is truer for a writer hoping to impress a publisher, agent or even reader. Everything you write is open to inspection, criticism. Every document, sentence, word you write creates an impression of all the qualities of your work. And it says a lot about you.

Here's help....

The real Malaysia is a country divided not by race or religion or by the attitudes of the vast majority of its people but by what Singapore's former Prime Minister LEE Kwan Yew called "creeping Arabisation," under which a small number of policy makers and opinion formers are pushing the country in the direction of exactly the divisions the people have long resisted. Now the country has seen its first attack by someone claiming to represent the ideals of, if not actually represent, Islamic fundamentalist group Da'esh (aka ISIS or Islamic State).

The internet is not a thing, it is not a place, it is not a person.

The internet, of itself, does nothing. It performs no function.

The internet does not form intent. It has no conscience.

The internet is like the pipes in a domestic plumbing system.

The plumbing system allows the delivery of water to terminal points: taps, showers and toilets. The internet allows the delivery of instructions and information to terminal points - computers.

Case Summary: 

Mark Anthony McGovern (49) was convicted of tax evasion in 2008 but before he was sentenced he told the Judge he was unprepared to go to jail, that he found the idea upsetting and frightening.

So he ran away.

Tax fraud / evasion

It is fascinating that the USA is having a panic attack about the spread of Da'esh / ISIS by means of propaganda. It is also ironic, given the cultural imperialism that the USA has applied through the entertainment industry - and continues to do so, shaping thinking in so many ways that even in the UK, we find ourselves dominated not by the USA's sharpest minds but by the excessively puerile.

And yet the parallels of how Da'esh / ISIS and the USA spread their messages, and reinforce them, are striking.

Fraudsters rely on illusion. They depend on showing you something so that you do not recognise a truth that they want to obscure.

Many fraudsters are clever, many are well prepared, but the vast majority are opportunists ..

CoNet Section: 

Yanis Varoufakis, has resigned. In one of his last pronouncements as Greek Finance Minister, Varoufakis said the idea that Greece could print Drachmas was a fallacy. He is reported as having said "we destroyed all the presses."

While he might be right in one respect, that of printing actual Drachma notes, he's fundamentally wrong in another. There is an option that would fix much of the crisis - although it's one that would cause the EU to have a major fit.

 

Morris-Cotterill The Ten Real Life Exploits Da'esh / ISIS use to Hack the World PUBLISHED March 2015 as a special issue of World Money Laundering Report Ten Exploits that Dae'sh / ISIS Use to Hack the World explains how Da'esh / ISIS has been able to become such a global force in such a short time and how the group has become the biggest threat to the world since the Ice Age.
