About Andrew Noske
Andrew Noske was born and grew up in Australia with a passion for animals, dancing and creative writing. After finishing a PhD in diabetes research he moved to the US for a postdoc in neuroscience at UCSD then began working at Google Maps. He currently lives in San Francisco, battling first world problems. His entire life, Andrew has loved documenting everything: from science articles, to programming manuals and personal humor pieces which are sometimes mildly funny. His other passions: he strives to pick up 3 pieces of litter per day and deliver 3 care packages to homeless people per week for his strawberriesforsmiles.com project (both these projects are sadly on pause during corona season). Secretly, he wishes to quit Google, write a book about the two tier system there, and spend all his life on passion projects like writing and creating apps for safe sex and other educational adventures. But hey - for now he needs software engineering to pay the bills.

Imagine a future where women all over the world felt safe going on dates with men. That may feel like a pipedreams, but the consent to kiss (CTK) campaign aims to reduce sexual violations from forced kisses and worse by hundreds of millions. We can do this by changing social norms, and starting the start of consent dialog one step earlier than the bedroom. Let's let women state on their online dating profiles that they expect to be asked for consent with the letters "ctk". Let's show our children and the world sexy examples of men respecting asking for consent, so that we might end this idea that any man can grab a woman's head for a kiss without any warning or consent or repercussions. This book challenges the social norms put in place by film, tv and other media and shows there is another way.
Inside this book you will find new research on unwanted kisses and so much more. Lyuba Venable and Dr Andrew Noske delve deep into the actional steps needed for the CTK campaign to change the world, and go deep into conversations about consent, masculinity, femininity, safe sex and the challenging of gender stereotypes. Regardless of your gender and sexual preference identiy, this book will open your eyes to new possibilities in dating culture that will inspire you to date better and help us take the MeToo movement to the next logical level - from talking about the past into the relm of preventing sexual violation - with a very simple idea. #ctk
John Miller is the world’s most recognizable movie star, and Ethan Miles, a political science graduate, has convinced him to join a revolutionary new “School for World Leaders” and run for president of the United States. Together, their ideas and friendship might just change the world before growing corruption and a looming war with Russia threatens to take away all the people they love.
This book represents a 110 minute movie screenplay with a purpose. This work was motivated by the 2022 invasion of Ukraine, which deeply affected the author. The author wished that the United States and other countries would more actively help a country in need against a tyrannical dictator. For the US to help another country without any motive of revenge or resource gain. To do the right thing. This is a movie that could help inspire a generation of the youngest and brightest minds to get politically involved and make a difference. The premise of the school for world leaders runs almost like the world beauty pageants, but instead of looking for beauty, school aged children around the world would be assessed for intelligence, empathy and community contribution. The best children of our society, regardless of their socio-economic background, would be given full-ride scholarships in a school with the world’s most inspiring teachers and a flexible curriculum, focussed on turning bright children into benevolent future politicians. Incorruptible.
The movie is set in 2025. Putin was assassinated and Russia pulled out of Ukraine, but the new president of Russia, Leo Sharapova, threatens to invade and defeat Ukraine with millions of mass produced drones. The corrupt president of the United States, Morris Scott, idly stands by as he runs for re-election. The movie itself has a little of everything. Unforgettable romance, tragic death, horrifying war, killer drones, jet fighter battles, humility, humor, poverty, racism, optimistic high schoolers, an eccentric billionaire who wants to turn the whole school into reality television set, and more. At the heart of this movie, however, is the friendship between the two main characters as they try to fight against corruption by building a revolutionary new school and making sure John wins office so that the United States can finally stand up against the president of Russia.
