This book documents the large-scale redevelopment of the labyrinthine Shibuya train station in the heart of Tokyo´s world-famous shopping district. Although many such ambitious construction projects are currently underway throughout Japan´s ever-renewing capital in preparation for the Olympic Games in 2020, the work at Shibuya Station is in a particularly dense and active area-the world´s busiest pedestrian crossing (where up to 2,500 people simultaneously traverse the street in five directions) is only a stroll away, while the station´s nine train lines have remained operational throughout renovations. Mixing black-and-white and color images taken at various times of day and night, Reconstruction is both a collection of stilled moments from this bustling process of transformation and an unconventional portrait of Shibuya.
They´re back! In their first adventure, Marc Julian, software billionaire, and Jesse Winchester, hacker extraordinaire, survived the evil plans of the Krom brothers and Jesse´s first lover, Chip. But Jesse has old debts to pay to Russian gangster Leonid Ivanov. Now Leonid is calling in those debts, demanding that Jesse find a great treasure for him, and a new game is set in motion... The mysterious ´´Satoshi,´´ creator of the cyber currency Bitcoin, has been hiding $375 million worth of the currency for years. But now, he has chosen to start a quest for the keys to the Hoard, and he who controls the keys controls the fortune. And this will be a quest that will test the strength, the will, and the character of those who pursue it. But Marc and Jesse aren´t the only ones on the hunt, as old enemies resurface to try and beat them to the treasure...and even if they reach it first, they must ask themselves - do they really want to give a Russian gangster $375 million to pursue his deadly enterprises? And what would be the consequences if they don´t? The pursuit will take them from Andorra to Barcelona, through the museums of Tokyo, the streets of Buenos Aires, and the coast of Mexico, in a desperate and dangerous race to keep the fortune in digital gold from the hands of all their enemies... 1.

Reissue des gesuchten Cool Jazz / Bebop-Meisterwerks des Trios um Jazzpianist Ryo Fukui aus dem Jahre 1976. We Release Jazz (WRWTFWW Records new sister-label) is proud to present its first release, the official reissue of Ryo Fukuis highly sought-after masterpiece Scenery (1976), sourced from the original masters and available on limited edition 180g vinyl mastered at half speed for audiophile sound and on digipack CD. Unquestionably one of the most important Japanese jazz albums ever recorded, Scenery reveals Ryo Fukui as a miraculously brilliant self-taught pianist fusing modal, bop, andcool jazz influences for a very personal, dexterous and game-changing take on classic standards made famous by Bing Crosby and John Coltrane among others. From ´´It Could Happen To You´´ and its serene and calm intro which magically flows into a jubilant and upbeat piece, to the out-of-this-world piano solo of ´´Early Summer´´, or the incredible teamwork of ´´Autumn Leaves´´ where Fukui leads Satoshi Denpo (bass) and Yoshinori Fukui (drums) into groove heaven, every single note on the album oozes precision, confidence and flair and every single section slides seamlessly into one another, creating a supreme and elegant blend of jazz. Often compared to McCoy Tyner or Bill Evans, Ryo Fukui was a genius in his own right, a true master of his craft whose perfectionism gave birth to some of the greatest music ever recorded. Scenery is his magnum opus and an absolute must-have. The Hokkaido wizard-pianist followed Scenery with the soulful gem Mellow Dream (also available on We Release Jazz) in 1977. He then focused on improving his live skills, often performing at Sapporos Slowboat Jazz Club (which he co-founded with his wife Yasuko Fukui) and releasing 2 live albums. Ryo Fukui sadly passed away in March 2016, leaving behind a legacy of works that is sure to captivate jazz lovers for generations to come.

Bitcoin emerged in 2009 as the creation of a person under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. It became the world´s first fully operational, decentralized, peer-to-peer digital currency system. Being decentralized intrinsically means being self-organizing, a phenomenon in which local individuals achieve global goals without central planning or influence. Although decentralized systems can be found in nature, the concept is not easy to grasp in its monetary context, as we are so used to the voice of central governments and financial institutions orchestrating our economic lives. Blockchain: A Complete Beginner´s Guide Bitcoins as a game changer have virtually set people´s imagination into flight. Bitcoins are based on the blockchain technology. Increased exploration of the further uses of blockchain technologies have showed that there is immense promise in blockchain technologies. No wonder, blockchain contracts are now beginning to be viewed with increased seriousness. Blockchain contracts are contracts that are entered into using the blockchain technology. Unlike the actual world contract, blockchain contracts are different inasmuch as they are executed using the code embedded in the blockchain. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Theis.
