Communication and Media Lecturer Tim Welch has just produced his 29th audio book for Audible.com and iTunes. BlockChain: A Basic Guide by Steve Gold provides an understanding of the new cryptocurrencies and the blockchain software technology that underpins them. BitCoin is the most popular form of “virtual currency”, but the BlockChain online ledger system is the heart of the technology because, by its very interlocking nature, it prevents most forms of hacking.

Professor Gustavo Arango (Foreign Languages and Literatures) published a new book, the collection of essays “Life and Miracles of a Dead Language” (Vida y milagros de una lengua muerta), edited in Medellín, Colombia, by Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana. The book was released on September 17, during the Medellín International Book Fair (Fiesta del Libro). At the event, Professor Arango was also invited to be part of a panel discussing the relevance of García Márquez’s novel “One Hundred years of Solitude”, 50 years after its publications.
