    Originally published anonymously, The Federalist Papers first appeared in 1787 as a series of letters to New York newspapers exhorting voters to ratify the proposed Constitution of the United States. Still hotly debated and open to often controversial interpretations, the arguments first presented here by three of America's greatest patriots and political theorists were created during a critical moment in our nation's history.

    Little more than 10 years after the first powered flight, aircraft were pressed into service in World War I. Nearly forgotten in the war's massive overall death toll, some 50,000 aircrew would die in the combatant nations' fledgling air forces. The romance of aviation had a remarkable grip on the public imagination, propaganda focusing on gallant air "aces" who become national heroes. The reality was horribly different. Marked for Death debunks popular myth to explore the brutal truths of wartime aviation.

    Bitcoin exists as a digital cryptocurrency designed to resolve the disharmony between the way money moves online and the global nature of the Internet. The Internet as an infrastructure has already partially eliminated key barriers to consumption, including both geography and time. However, the processes by which transactions are paid for online inevitably requires the presence of a trusted third party (MasterCard, Visa, and PayPal). This stems from the fact that traditional currencies do not exist online, only the promise of payment by the buyer to the seller.
