Navigating The Cyberworld With Your Child
Addictive Internet use is a relatively new phenomenon which many people are unaware of and subsequently do not seek treatment for. While there is no escaping the use of the Internet in schools and offices in today’s technology-driven world, excessive Internet use may lead to deteriorating relationships or interfere with life’s responsibilities. This book compiles a series of articles about the different types of Internet-related addictions that a child or teenager may face, such as pornography, social networking, gaming and online shopping. It also explores the legal problems that arise from cybercrimes and discusses the services and programmes available for both the victims and perpetrators. Finally, it explores the implications of future technology and research into this area.

This book walks readers through the process of crafting a Wargame in PHP utilizing the Codelgniter application framework. Exploring both application development issues and game design development issues, the readers will work through database and code system design in order to craft a functioning turn-based wargame. The wargame project serves as an exciting context for PHP programmers looking to gain in depth application coding experience. Those with an interest in game development will learn the code skills to support design decisions as they create the game project. The book assumes at least a beginning level of PHP coding; however, no previous Codelgniter or game development experience is required. It includes complete source code for a game project. The complete source code – models, controllers and views, for the game at the center of the book is included and can be adapted and modified by the user. It contains the full database design (SQL) for game data structures. The design gives non-database programmers all the tools to move forward and a starting point for experienced SQL developers to add more depth to unit and map data structures. It shows a flexible game map system. This system can be the foundation upon which readers can move forward with their own game projects, be they a different form of hex-based wargame or other map-based game project. It includes a complete overview of a simple CRUD system. The model-controller-view CRUD system can easily be expanded and modified to tackle any “single table at a time” database manipulation problem.
This book offers a guide for librarians who see their profession as a chance to make a positive difference in their communities — librarians who recognize that it is no longer enough to stand behind a desk waiting to serve. R. David Lankes, author of The Atlas of New Librarianship, reminds librarians of their mission: to improve society by facilitating knowledge creation in their communities. In this book, he provides tools, arguments, resources, and ideas for fulfilling this mission. Librarians will be prepared to become radical positive change agents in their communities, and other readers will learn to understand libraries in a new way. The librarians of Ferguson, Missouri, famously became positive change agents in August 2014 when they opened library doors when schools were closed because of civil unrest after the shooting of an unarmed teen by police. Working with other local organizations, they provided children and their parents a space for learning, lunch, and peace. But other libraries serve other communities — students, faculty, scholars, law firms — in other ways. All libraries are about community, writes Lankes; that is just librarianship. In concise chapters, Lankes addresses the mission of libraries and explains what constitutes a library. He offers practical advice for librarian training; provides teaching notes for each chapter; and answers “Frequently Argued Questions” about the new librarianship.
