About the Author

Barbara O’Hare was admitted to Aston Hall psychiatric hospital when she was 12-years-old, where she was subjected to horrifying courses of ‚treatment‘ from its head physician. Frequently injected with drugs, locked away and abused, Barbara has attempted to come to terms with her time at Aston Hall 46 years on. After creating the Facebook group ‚Survivors of Aston Hall‘, victims have been brought together in their search for answers of how the abuse they suffered came to pass, and was kept secret for so long. Their efforts have led to a major police investigation and a meeting at the Houses of Parliament to have their story heard. Now, more than 100 people have come forward alleging abuse at Aston Hall.

This is Barbara’s first book, exposing the abuse she suffered at Aston Hall.

Nobody knew what was going on behind those doors. We were human toys. Just a piece of meat for someone to play with.

Barbara O’Hare was just 12 when she was admitted to the psychiatric hospital, Aston Hall, in 1971. From a troubled home, she’d hoped she would find sanctuary there. But within hours, Barbara was tied down, drugged with sodium amytal – a truth-telling drug – and then abused by its head physician, Dr Kenneth Milner.

The terrifying drug experimentation and relentless abuse that lasted throughout her stay damaged her for life. But somehow, Barbara clung on to her inner strength and eventually found herself leading a campaign to demand answers for potentially hundreds of victims.

A shocking account of how vulnerable children were preyed upon by the doctor entrusted with their care, and why it must never happen again.

Convert Blu-ray MTS/M2TS Videos to Google Nexus S in Full Screen


The Nexus S, the first phone to run Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, is probably the best Android handset today. It supports a 4″ Super AmoLED touchscreen, 16 GB of internal memory and 1 Ghz processor. The Contour Display of the Nexus S is nice and so’s the AMOLED screen, even if the 800X480 res doesn’t feel so fresh anymore. Want to stream your favorite BD/DVD movies on the new Android phone for playing? Just keep reading the article.

Nexus S Supported Formats

Video Types
MP4/DivX/WMV/H.264/H.263

Audio Types
MP3/WAV/eAAC+/AC3/FLAC

From the above form, you will see that the Nexus One can’t directly play Blu-ray M2TS and DVD files. So if you plan to enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies on Nexus One, the first thing you should do is to convert Blu-ray to Nexus S supported video/audio format.

What’s you need:

Foxreal Blu-ray Ripper.
(Notice: The BD ripping software can decrypt and rip Blu-ray/DVD disc to any other popular media formats at 5x faster speed than other simlilar Blu-ray converter based on the latest NVIDIA CUDA technology.)
A BD ROM.
BD/DVD disc.
A PC.

The step-by-step guide on how to rip Blu-ray/DVD to Nexus S:
Step 1: Run Foxreal Blu-ray Ripper as the perfect Blu-ray to Nexus S Converter and click blu-ray-disc.jpg to load your Blu-ray or DVD files. (Note: before loading Blu-ray to Nexus S, a BD ROM is needed.)

Step 2: Choose Nexus S playable format from the „Format“ drop-down list. You can select Google Nexus One MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4) for the new Google Nexus S, which can also keep the converted Nexus S movie files with high quality.

Step 3: Customize output settings for Nexus S by clicking the „Settings“ button. For instance, you can set the size (pix) as 800*480 to fit the display screen resolution to get the full video/movie playback on the Android Nexus S.

Garmin Nuvifone Preview – Sat-nav for the Masses


Recently an increasing number of mobile phones have come with certain GPS and satellite navigation applications and functions; the HTC Artemis range and its bundled TomTom navigator software being possibly the best-equipped. This has obviously helped in highlighting the fact that Sat-Nav is fast becoming an essential part of any multimedia device.

To date there hasn’t been a handset that is built from the ground up for this purpose, but GPS-giants Garmin have done just that with the Navifone.

In a varying range of blog and mobile news websites, the Navifone has been touted as an iPhone competitor, which is very surprising but more feasible than appearances may have you believe.

This assumption is based around the 3.5 inch touchscreen, which as you would expect is the main method of using the phone in almost all situations. This is coupled with the simplistic yet attractive-looking interface and in some aspects you can see why it has been given the dreaded task of competing with the iPhone.

As this phone hasn’t been shown first hand to the industry officially, it’s hard to make any kind of judgement regarding the effectiveness of the UI, but if it is as innovative as the iPhone was, things could get really interesting. We do know that it is based upon the already proven interface on Garmin’s existing Nuvi Sat-Nav system.

Official specs are nigh-on-impossible to get hold of at this time, but there are some sketchy details out there at the moment. The Navifone will have a (as mentioned earlier) 3.5″ touchscreen display; HSDPA 3G access; digital camera with video (no Mega Pixel count yet) and media player with support for all the latest music file formats such as AAC+ etc, though this is still awaiting confirmation.

The Garmin Navifone will have 3 different ways in which to use the device, all of which can be selected with a single tap on the relevant on-screen option. The options are pretty self-explanatory – Phone; Search & Navigation. The search option in case you’re wondering is for locating your own position when lost, via the integrated Google local search option.

The Sat-Nav capabilities are also based on Garmin’s standalone Nuvi series of GPS receivers and are likely to be one of the best seen in mobile phones capable of this.

Once more specific details and specs are available we’ll have a better idea of how the Garmin Navifone will fit into the mobile phone marketplace once released, but until then methinks it’ll be one to watch closely over the coming months.

The Attention Merchants: The Epic Scramble to Get Inside Our Heads

The Attention Merchants: The Epic Scramble to Get Inside Our Heads

Jetzt kaufen

From Tim Wu, author of the award-winning The Master Switch ( a New Yorker and Fortune Book of the Year) and who coined the term „net neutrality”—a revelatory, ambitious and urgent account of how the capture and re-sale of human attention became the defining industry of our time.
 
Feeling attention challenged? Even assaulted? American business depends on it. In nearly every moment of our waking lives, we face a barrage of messaging, advertising enticements, branding, sponsored social media, and other efforts to harvest our attention. Few moments or spaces of our day remain uncultivated by the „attention merchants,“ contributing to the distracted, unfocused tenor of our times. Tim Wu argues that this condition is not simply the byproduct of recent technological innovations but the result of more than a century’s growth and expansion in the industries that feed on human attention. From the pre-Madison Avenue birth of advertising to the explosion of the mobile web; from AOL and the invention of email to the attention monopolies of Google and Facebook; from Ed Sullivan to celebrity power brands like Oprah Winfrey, Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump, the basic business model of „attention merchants“ has never changed: free diversion in exchange for a moment of your consideration, sold in turn to the highest-bidding advertiser. Wu describes the revolts that have risen against the relentless siege of our awareness, from the remote control to the creation of public broadcasting to Apple’s ad-blocking OS. But he makes clear that attention merchants are always growing new heads, even as their means of getting inside our heads are changing our very nature–cognitive, social, political and otherwise–in ways unimaginable even a generation ago.
 
“A startling and sweeping examination of the increasingly ubiquitous commercial effort to capture and commodify our attention…We’ve become the consumers, the producers, and the content. We are selling ourselves to ourselves.”
—Tom Vanderbilt, The New Republic
 
“An erudite, energizing, outraging, funny and thorough history…A devastating critique of ad tech as it stands today, transforming „don’t be evil“ into the surveillance business model in just a few short years. It connects the dots between the sale of advertising inventory in schools to the bizarre ecosystem of trackers, analyzers and machine-learning models that allow the things you look at on the web to look back at you…This stuff is my daily beat, and I learned a lot from Attention Merchants.”
—Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing 

“Illuminating.”
—Jacob Weisberg, The New York Review of Books Knopf Publishing Group
