10 Movies Available on Hoopla:

Nicolas Cage-O-Rama-A-Thon

 

As I have been going through Hoopla’s movie library, the one constant I keep seeing is Nicolas Cage’s face on movie after movie, either in close-up or with an explosion behind him, sometimes both. It made me wonder, “Is there an all Nicolas Cage 10 movie list available on Hoopla?” Yes, my friends. Yes, there is.

 

 

 

How can you tell if a source is trustworthy on the internet?

It is easy and cheap to obtain a web address and to create a website to promote any information or product you wish. There are many satirical websites on the web, and some are more obviously satire than others. Websites that create satirical, fake, or embellished content make money every time someone visits their page and the ads load, so the goal of these websites is to get as many people to click as possible. They use many different tricks to convince people to click, including outlandish or too good to be true headlines, unflattering imagery of a polarizing political figure or celebrity, click-bait wording like “facts the media doesn’t want you to know!” or “you won’t believe what happens next!”. Sometimes they try to spoof the name and look of an official website to trick you into thinking it’s a trustworthy source.

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro- An amazingly prolific author, Yarbro began with the first of the Charles Spotted mystery series, Ogilvie, Tallant & Moon in 1976. She has written numerous series including historical mystery/ghost (Chesterton Holte, Gentleman Haunt series), western (Jason Russell series), historical horror (The Saint-Germain Cycle), fantasy (book 2 in the Merchant Prince series) science-fiction (book four in the Crisis of Empire series) and dozens of novels and short stories, written under her own and various pen names. In 2009 she won the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement. For me, I became acquainted with Yarbro’s work with her 1980 novelization for the 1981 zombie thriller Dead & Buried.
