MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Mayor of Minneapolis After Dark", L.A. Nik, announced today that he will release a first-of-its-kind, self-help book entitled "LIFE IS SHORT, THEN YOU'RE DEAD FOREVER".
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
New author, L.A. Nik, a career musician, promoter, and entrepreneur from West Hollywood, CA, has authored a new book targeted at middle-aged people that have become stuck in a rut, struggling to achieve their dreams in life and work – seeking words of wisdom that are actually achievable points of traction.
The sub-target for the book is the entrepreneurial-minded teenager that has a defined sense of personality. The author believes kids will resonate with his book, as he guides them through a simplistic school of thought that clearly defined his life forever, as early as the 9th grade – leading to entrepreneurialism, business ownership, and a more fulfilling way of life.
"After reading this book, I want you to learn to live life to the fullest and understand that, "Life is Short, then You're Dead Forever." There are no second chances. No do-overs. You can't get on the ride again once it's over with – its born from my personal experiences and mistakes I've made. You will not find any feathery prose or poetry. There are no biblical passages. There are no tapes to buy. No chants to memorize. It is just realistic, straightforward advice on how to life your life without regret – like me". – L.A. Nik
The event is open to all ages where L.A. Nik will be participating in the meet and greet and signing on January 10th, 2013 at Bank Restaurant & Bar, whom is hosting the event, at the Westin Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. The event is a combined book launch and birthday party for the author, running from 5:30pm – 8:00pm, with a sampling of hors d'oeuvres and a happy hour cocktail menu. One dollar from every book purchase thereafter will go to The Sanneh Foundation, whom will also be present at the event.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Published by Cartus Press, "Life is Short, then you're Dead Forever" is the culmination of a life of experience with people, careers, marriage, drugs, poverty and wealth. This book is a quick, energetic read that is intended for those that truly want to take away action points to apply to their life. It is refreshingly simplistic and delivered in a storytelling format. The author explores born-in "powers", in the form of chapter titles that do not come easy for many, but are identifiable in all successful people.
L.A. Nik's second book "EVERY WOMAN SHOULD READ THIS BOOK", has an anticipated Summer 2013 release date.
THE SANNEH FOUNDATION
L.A. Nik has partnered with national soccer pro, Tony Sanneh and the Sanneh Foundation to help drive awareness to the release of his book and a notable non-profit. One dollar from every book purchase for the first year will be donated to the Sanneh Foundation to help their investment in the local community. The Sanneh Foundation is "an organization that uses sports to unite diverse communities, helping at-risk youth develop into leaders and experience success".
"I think the mindset of my book really aligns with the goals and mission of the Sanneh Foundation. My ideals are simple and easy for kids to understand and I've delivered them in a language that they use everyday." – L.A. Nik
"LIFE IS SHORT, THEN YOU'RE DEAD FOREVER" will be available at www.YouNeedThisBook.com, as well as Amazon.com. Apple iBook, Kindle and other e-formats will also be available after January 10th, 2013.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
