By Joe Wikert

I was on a conference call recently talking about piracy with Joe Karaganis, Brian OLeary and Ruediger Wischenbart. At one point someone mentioned that piracy can be avoided when content is made available at a reasonable price and in all convenient formats. That begs the question: Whats a reasonable price?

I asked the group if they felt $9.99 is the answer. All three of them said thats too high. Maybe were too focused on the 99-cent phenomenon and, of course, its hard to state a reasonable price when talking generally about all types of books (e.g., trade, technical, etc.) Nevertheless, its disturbing to think that the future of ebooks features a race to zero on pricing.

As long as publishers are offering nothing more than quick-and-dirty p-to-e conversions we cant really expect consumers to pay more, especially since the e-version loses functionality (e.g, lending restrictions, cant resell). I mentioned when richer products arrive and they leverage the device capabilities they wont have to be as cheap as the quick-and-dirty conversions. Joe and Brian werent very optimistic about that. Brian pointed out that $9.99 has become such a standard in consumers heads that it will be hard to break that price point.

Devotions and Prayers

And the smoke of the incense,

with the prayers of the saints,

rose before God from the hand of the angel.

— Revelation 8:4

The Angelus

The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.

And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you,

blessed are you among women,

and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord,

be it done unto me according to your word.

Hail Mary…

And the Word was made flesh.

And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary…

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:

Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Guardian Angel Prayer

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love entrusts me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

how to be long-distance snipers. They might be trained in how to negotiate to free hostages.

Many SWAT training sessions are called simulations. A simulation is a pretend situation that is made to seem real. For example, they may use an old, abandoned house, pretending that a criminal is hiding inside.

They have to practice entering the house. Mannequins might spring out at the SWAT team members. They have to decide if the fake attacker is a criminal or an innocent bystander. Simulations are never perfect, but they

SWAT teams are constantly training. There is always something new to practice. There is always some skill at which the team can improve.

SWAT team members cross a runway at Castle Airport in Atwater, California.

The training exercise includes a terrorist takeover of a 737 airplane. The simulation tests the team's skill in a highjacking situation. It also includes detonating an explosive device by bomb squad members.
