El mayor peligro del acceso ilimitado a la inofrmaci�n es que siempre hay alguien que la acepta sin cuestionar. En la prensa escrita y en la digital, en las redes sociales y en los medios tradicionales, un torrente de mentiras, propaganda e inexactitudes --motivadas por el af�n de dinero, notoriedad o poder-- se mezcla y confunde con el reporte de hechos reales. Jam�s ha sido tan f�cil ser enga�ado: a la censura y el espionaje se han sumado la sobreinformaci�n y las fake news. En este escenario, que parece sacado de una distop�a orwelliana, la �tica period�stica, la confirmaci�n y el rigor parecen reliquias olvidadas. El fen�meno es poderos�simo y ya define el rumbo del mundo: en buena parte gracias a la difusi�n de �noticias� falsas, Donald Trump gan� la Presidencia de Estados Unidos. Y no es un fen�meno ajeno. En M�xico, las fake news son pan de todos los d�as, como lo demostr� el �caso Frida Sof�a�. Ya jugaron un papel clave en la elecci�n de 2012 y sin duda ser�n protagonistas este 2018. En este libro, el periodista Esteban Illades examina decenas de casos en los que la confusi�n y la falsedad han llevado a resultados catastr�ficos, y explora las razones de que --en plena Era del Conocimiento-- sigamos creyendo datos imposibles y, por el contrario, negando evidencias irrefutables. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The gravest danger in unlimited access to information is that there's always someone who accepts it without question. In print and digital press, on both social and traditional media, a torrent of lies, propaganda, and inaccuracies gets confused with the reporting of real facts. In this Orwellian scenario, journalistic ethics, corroboration, and accuracy seem like forgotten relics. The phenomenon is powerful and is already affecting world events: thanks in good part to "fake news," Donald Trump won the U.S. presidency. And it's not an isolated event; in Mexico, fake news is an everyday event, as evidenced in the case of "Frida Sof�a." In this book, journalist Esteban Illades examines dozens of cases in which confusion and falsehoods have led to catastrophic results, and explores the reasons why--in the heart of the Age of Knowledge--we continue to believe impossible facts and deny irrefutable evidence.
MY FAVORITE DINOSAURS
Author: Ruth Ashby
Publisher: Milk & Cookies
MY FAVORITE DINOSAURS presents a child's world of all the classic dinosaurs from Tyrannosaurus Rex to Hadrosaurs along with dramatic new finds in John Sibbick's world-famous style. Simple text and design make the ideal 'first' dinosaur book for readers ages 4-8. Everyone has a favorite dinosaur! What's yours? Are you a fan of the sharp-toothed, meat-eating predators? If so, your favorite may be Tyrannosaurus rex. Or the sickle-clawed Deinonychus. Or T. rex's nasty cousin, Tarbosaurus. Or the horned killer Ceratosaurus. Perhaps you prefer the plant-eating giants. If so, your favorite dinosaur may be the massive Apatosaurus (formerly called Brontosaurus). Or the tallest dinosaur, Brachiosaurus. If your favorites are the armored dinosaurs, you'll find plenty of them here, too, like Polacanthus, often called a "walking tank." Or you may like Stegosaurus and its kin. Or you may prefer the duckbilled dinosaurs, like Parasaurolophus, Lambeosaurus, and Corythosaurus. Strange-looking dinosaurs, plant-eaters that walked on two legs as well as all four, dinosaurs that had snouts like crocodiles, meat-eating dinosaurs in all sizes and shapes, dinosaurs that looked like birds, dinosaurs that were birds . . . all are here for your viewing pleasure. Learn about dinosaurs you never heard of before. Discover old friends and find new favorites. JOHN SIBBICK debuted with a dramatic splash in 1985 as the illustrator of two landmark books on dinosaur paleontology: When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, by David Norman, and The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs, also by David Norman. His exquisitely researched and executed paintings have graced the pages of over a dozen books on paleo-life for both adults and children. He has also illustrated a half-dozen major features on paleo-life for National Geographic magazine, covering such subjects as "Mass Extinctions," "Gobi Desert Dinosaurs," "Homo Erectus," and "Pterosaurs." Sibbick's paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United Kingdom, Japan, and the United States. His work has also been included in traveling exhibitions mounted both here and in Europe, including "Dinosaurs, A Global View," "Tracking Dinosaurs," and "Dinosaurs: Then and Now." Sibbick lives and works in England, where he is generally acknowledged as the dean of paleo-art. RUTH ASHBY has written many award-winning biographies and nonfiction books for children, including Herstory, The Elizabethan Age, and Pteranodon: The Life Story of a Pterosaur. She lives in Long Island with her husband, daughter, and dog, Nubby.

The New Dinosaurs
Author: Dougal Dixon
Publisher: Columbine Trade
Looks at how the dinosaurs might have evolved if they hadn't become extinct, and shows and describes the characteristics of these hypothetical creatures
Raised in a multi-ethnic farming community, Afrikaner Christo Brand was confused and saddened when he first confronted the realities of South African apartheid. Conscripted into the military at 18, Brand chose to serve as a prison guard rather than embrace the brutality and danger inherent in the work of soldiers and policemen. Assigned to the maximum security facility on remote Robben Island, Brand was given charge of the country's most infamous inmate: Nelson Mandela. For 12 years Brand watched Mandela scrub floors, empty his toilet bucket, grieve over the deaths of family and friends yet remain as strong as any freedom fighter in history. Won over by Madiba's charm and authentic concern for the well-being of others, Brand became Mandela's confidant and at times accomplice. Celebrating triumphs and suffering through many setbacks, the two men formed an unlikely bond, one that would endure until Mandela's death. Told with candor and reverence, Mandela: My Prisoner, My Friend is both a meditation on friendship and a moving testament to the dedication, determination and—most of all—humanity exuded by one of the world's great leaders.
