“Nobody knows everything about anything, therefore dialogue” – Len Swidler

iPub Global Connection is an online community of fellow thinkers, writers, and readers. We hope it will become your favorite place to shop for books and other items you use in your daily life, including music, gifts, tools, and clothes – all that Amazon and other distribution sites offer.

How are we different from other online shopping markets? Well for starters, we want to promote authors who share the interest in creating opportunities for dialogue. The dialogue here is insightful without being insulting, thoughtful without rancor, and above all, helps us find solutions for today’s challenges, and not the “us versus them” strategies we see in too many online forums.

What Is iPubCloud?

iPubCloud is the Internet home of iPub Global Connection and a place to encourage dialogue by hosting discussions on important issues facing today’s global community.

As you explore, you will discover that you can also search for and buy books for learning and having fun. This will be your global “home” where everyday thinkers can interact with writers and influencers on everything from religion to architecture, business ethics to agriculture, and most of all, global survival.  Browse our book selections and connect with us via social media.

It’s our vision that iPubCloud will be THE place to visit, read, and shop. Our first featured author, who sets the standard for the selection of future featured authors, is Dr. Leonard J. Swidler, Professor of Catholic Thought and Interreligious Dialogue at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  Dr. Swidler began teaching at Temple in 1966, and in 1978, he founded the Dialogue Institute and co founded (with the late Arlene Swidler) the Journal of Ecumenical Studies. iPub Global Connection is honored to have Dr. Swidler as our Senior Consultant.

We at DICK'S Sporting Goods are deeply disturbed and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones.

But thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have to help solve the problem that's in front of us. Gun violence is an epidemic that's taking the lives of too many people, including the brightest hope for the future of America - our kids.

We deeply believe that this country's most precious gift is our children. They are our future. We must keep them safe.

Time to Become Ultra-Human?

In this wonderful piece Sam Holt evaluates these questions and discusses what he believes we should do to overcome the New Years Blues.
