Author Netanel Semrik re-launched best-selling book “Jonathan in the Kingdom of Mood Balloons” in English, Chinese, Arabic and Hebrew

Does your child has difficulties to manage their emotions?- “Jonathan in the Kingdom of Mood Balloons” has the answer!

Tel Aviv, Israel, October 1, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — A new release of the best-selling emotional management book by Netanel Semrik. Find the book on Amazon in English, Arabic, Chinese and Hebrew: http://goo.gl/b1iaai

How many times a day are your children emotionally shaken?
How many times have you seen your child throwing a temper tantrum, frustrated, angry, screaming and shouting?

Everything you have tried doing – shouting, caressing, embracing, yelling, punishing – have only served to send them deeper into their emotional turmoil. Have you experienced your children being sad because they had a fight with a friend? They cry, their sadness threatening to engulf them completely and maybe engulf you a little too.

You are probably familiar with the situation in which your little loved ones are in the middle of a jealousy attack; irritating, snatching, pushing one of their siblings who got a gift or attention, exhibiting little to no self-control. Your children’s emotional mood takes over their entire world and it seems as if nothing can stop the emotional storm. Your children’s eruptive behavior is threatening to control you too. You often feel helpless. Now, please close your eyes and imagine your children are able to manage their emotions and thoughts. Imagine them doing it in an easy, simple and intuitive way. Imagine them feeling so comfortable with themselves that they have no problem sharing their feelings with you.

Is it a Dream?
Is it a reality?
Is it possible?

Yes!

They will be able to do it once you allow them to float off to the dreamy world of Mood Balloons. Mood Balloons? Yes. Mood Balloons. Mood and balloons. This is a Kingdom in which each thought and emotion is connected to the tops of our heads by a string: A Mood Balloon.

Every balloon has a unique color representing our mood at any given moment. The Mood Balloon expresses the mood and the color of the world our children are experiencing. Our emotional management tool is intended for children between the 3 -6 years old, the dream period of early childhood. During this period they will meet the very violent world of stimulation and screens which is all around us. The Mood Balloons allow the children to deal with this harsh world by means of little, charming childhood images. This happens with the help of a simple and friendly tool. The Children color their Mood Balloons with five easy steps, and as we, the parents would say, start managing their moods:

Observation: the children are asked to observe the colorful balloons. Every color symbolizes an emotion they experience and feel. (Pink – love, blue – sadness, orange -joy, and so on)

Point of view: the Mood Balloon’s color can mold the children’s perception of reality, causing them to experience and believe a story that is not a true story as if it was. The Mood Balloon’s color is the color through which the children perceive people and things in the world. Attention: We ask the children to pay attention to every emotional storm they experience, which calms them down before the mood takes over their world and colors their Mood Balloon.

Breathing: the children win the key to the kingdom of their personal emotions by breathing.

Success: children who have chosen the color of their Mood Balloon and stand behind their choice will not be emotionally shaken the next time a storm passes by. All over the world thousands of children reading and listening to this story are carried away by this magical and imaginary tale. It fortifies their ability to believe in themselves as the person in charge of their own moods.

The book invites you, the parents, to give your children tools which will enable them to conduct a different conversation with the world. A conversation existing in an indirect and colorful space, without clouding the delicate “I” which wakes up, develops and lands in this word in the years of early childhood. Apparently, there is another option to the limited conversation: “How was playschool today?” with the constant, vague answer: “Fun”. You can ask the children what Mood Balloon they met today. You wouldn’t believe the wealth of stories and experiences that will burst out of that conversation.

The Mood Balloon reality becomes an accessible, easy and simple emotional base through which the child’s experiences are easily accessed and converted.

EconomyPR.com Launches Press Release Writing Service for Entrepreneurs

Streamlined and Affordable; Do-It-Yourself PR for Amazon Sellers, Startups and Crowd-Funders

Cleveland, Ohio, June 26, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — EconomyPR.com today announced the launch of its affordable, streamlined “do-it-yourself” public relations services for entrepreneurs, Amazon Sellers and crowd-funders today. Bridging the gap between random “gig economy” freelancers and premium agencies, EconomyPR.com has demonstrated in beta that it can deliver professionally-written press releases, blogs and media pitches at a fraction of the fees charged by agencies and publicists. The company’s do-it-yourself model enables clients who might not have even considered PR to conduct effective media campaigns.

“It’s time for the PR business to catch up with changes in the news industry as well as shifts in the way that creative work gets done,” said Hugh Taylor, the CEO and founder of EconomyPR.com. “Talented freelancers are available to work economically by the project. Entrepreneurial clients are taking media relations into their own hands. Journalists and bloggers are reachable directly and publishing online. The old barriers between a PR client and the media are disappearing. We’re leading the way in disrupting a field that’s ripe for change.”

Taylor, who has managed public relations in the Fortune 500 as well as for several venture-backed startups, founded EconomyPR.com after observing a disconnect in the modern public relations market. While many traditional PR firms require monthly retainers that can reach tens of thousands of dollars, the actual writing of a press release — which is all that some clients want — could be performed by freelancers for well under one hundred dollars. The proliferation of gig economy freelance sites such as Fiverr and PeoplePerHour has given public relations customers access to thousands of low-cost writing resources. However, quality and delivery can be unpredictable on these sites.

The challenge was to create an end product that met the client’s expectations while preserving the value of the gig economy. EconomyPR.com performs an essential editorial function, marshaling the resources of a skilled, curated freelancer base to enable low-cost press release writing for clients while enforcing professional standards for quality and message impact. The company also helps clients repurpose their press releases, adapting them into articles, blog posts and media pitch emails. In pre-launch beta, EconomyPR.com has helped dozens of entrepreneurs get their news picked up in the media.

EconomyPR.com’s basic offering is a 300 to 400 word press release for $25. Standard delivery is three business days. Extra charges apply for rush services and add-ons, such as blog post adaption and email pitches.

VIVIER MORTGAGES LIMITED “VML” AND LUIGI WEWEGE MEDIA STATEMENT

DUBLIN, IRELAND, February 24, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — Over the past few months VML was contacted by Mr Conor Ryan and other reporters working on a programme for RTE, the Irish broadcaster.

It soon became clear that a number of untrue and defamatory allegations – about VML and persons formerly or currently connected with it – would be made in the programme and had already been made to third parties. After VML clearly outlined the correct position to RTE, its lawyers confirmed that the programme and/or its reporting would be “fair and balanced”, “fair, impartial and objective”, “fair to all interests concerned”, “fair and accurate”, “broadcast in good faith” and contain “nothing misleading, unsavoury or malicious” nor any “distortions or untruths”. VML was further assured by RTE’s lawyers that it “adheres to high standards of journalistic ethics” and follows “proper journalistic standards”.

Unfortunately, this did not happen: despite withdrawing many of the untrue and defamatory allegations, when broadcasting its programme on 5th February, RTE retained a number of others.

Accordingly, on 13th February 2015, following the advice of Senior and Junior Counsel, VML issued proceedings against RTE and Mr Ryan. The proceedings are for defamation, procuring a breach of confidence, malicious falsehood and other wrongs, for which aggravated and exemplary damages are sought. It is expected that other parties will issue similar proceedings in the English High Court.

The true position, as previously stated to but ignored by RTE, is as follows:
• In 2004, VML effectively came under the control of the British Government.
• In 2011, VML was sold by the British Government to an English private company.
• In 2014, VML was sold by that English company to its present owner.
• The beneficial owners of VML’s shares and debt are those appearing on the public register.
• VML’s current owner and directors are entirely distinct from the previous owners and directors.

Where2Golf Celebrates 10th Anniversary as Golf’s Ultimate Online Information Source

LONDON, England, February 16, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — Where2Golf.com is celebrating its 10th anniversary as the ultimate online information source for the game of golf where golfers can ‘discover the best’ in golf travel and refer to its vast library of golf facts, figures and images.

Whilst first and foremost a comprehensive guide to the finest golf courses and the top golf destinations in the world, Where2Golf also houses an encyclopaedia of golf information covering international tournaments, both professional and amateur, a Who’s Who of golf, from the world’s best professionals to some of golf’s best course designers, as well as a golf dictionary that explains the game’s unique terminology.

Where2Golf began as a hobby back in 2002 for site founders, Nigel Butler and Suzanne Lenaerts, but it was three years later when they quit corporate life and committed themselves fulltime to expanding Where2Golf that it began to crystallize into the complete golf resource that it is today.

The professional development of the website started in 2005 with the couple visiting golf destinations and playing golf courses around the globe to ensure that their content was tried, tested and true and that the information they were providing was as accurate and objective as it could be.

“Nigel and I realised that if we were going to take on the huge task of growing Where2Golf into one of the world’s most complete golf guide we needed to devote 100% of our time to the project,” explains Suzanne. “ We gave up our jobs and began by seeking out and playing what most golfers would describe as the “best” golf courses on the planet. The Where2Golf resource you see today is the culmination of our combined experience of playing, assessing and covering over 4,500 golf courses over the last 10 years, from Europe to America, Australasia to Africa”.

As the content grew, so the website traffic grew.

Testament to the reputation the site has gained as a credible and reliable course reviewer, Where2Golf now generates an impressive 90,000 views per month and rising.

Though not exhaustive, this unique resource represents a wide and rich selection of courses that the general consensus of travelling golfers all over the world would want to play. To keep Where2Golf live, course reviews and new golfing destinations are added to and updated regularly. Turkey for example has recently been included in the golf destinations section.

The golf course reviews are based on Nigel’s and Suzanne’s assessment of three main aspects of a course: the quality of the design and layout, the conditioning and presentation and the attractiveness of the setting. The quality of the clubhouse, practice ground and associated facilities above and beyond the golf course are not factored into the ratings.

Another unique feature of the website is its high quality maps that feature all the courses Where2Golf covers. These maps are a powerful tool when planning a golf trip and mean that golfers can identify their preferred location boasting several great courses while basing themselves centrally. A quick click on each course details nearby recommended hotels whilst ‘Stay & Play’ courses are also indicated.

The encyclopaedia section of Where2Golf is as comprehensive as its golf course coverage.

In the Tournaments category, the results of all the top professional tournaments on the PGA, European, LPGA, LET, Asian and Seniors Tours are covered as well as the top amateur (both men and ladies) scene. Incredibly this coverage goes back as far as 1860.

The Who’s Who category  not only includes the world’s top players but also celebrated golf course designers, golf journalists and club makers and many other golf “celebrities”. Biographies of each individual are listed as well as golfing achievements and their contribution to the world of golf.

Finally a dictionary on the site explains the meaning of the terminology used in the game and offers the first steps in trying to demystify what the sport is about and making it more understandable and approachable.

After 10 years in the making, Where2Golf really is the most comprehensive one-stop shop for travelling golfers.

Love’s Affliction, a novel. Love across racial and cultural boundaries

Canton, Ohio, October 21, 2014 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — From Fidelis O. Mkparu comes a moving debut romance, Love’s Affliction, the story of love across racial and cultural boundaries, when a young Nigerian premed student, Joseph Fafa, falls for Wendy Crane. Coming to North Carolina at seventeen to attend college, Joseph is forced to fight racial prejudice daily while pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor. He meets Wendy Crane, whose wealthy father opposes their relationship. It is said that young love rarely reaches its full potential, but Joseph and Wendy are determined to prove everyone wrong. Love’s Affliction captures the weakness and heartbreak of forbidden love. Will their romance endure the scrutiny of a racially-charged small college town?

As Ella EL-Kildani, M.Ed, Educator, Director of Genta Educational and Tutorial ser-vices puts it, Love’s Affliction reveals the “intense passion, ambition, and determination, between two college co-eds from opposite ethnic and social classes” and “the agonizing, yet thrilling journey into a late 70’s multicultural romance.”

Fidelis O. Mkparu is a Harvard-trained cardiologist whose background and experience form the basis of this fictional work. He lives in Canton, Ohio where he is a consultant cardiologist.

“Love’s Affliction is a must-read book. It is part of a growing African migrant literature produced in the United States and dealing with important themes such as student-life abroad, love, romance, and cross-racial or cross-cultural encounters. The writing is very alluring and compelling, revealing the sophisticated nature of a new type of African literature from the United States.”

Premium Hybrid and Freesheet Offering Delivers Value and Quality

For the last 20 years our Freesheet grades set industry standards while our Premium Hybrid papers are driving market innovation.”

We know once religious publishers and printers become more familiar with our blended products they will appreciate the unique benefits of the offering. Premium Hybrid can translate into a significant advantage for a publisher,” added Hutchins. “Our papers provide options that support brand image while stretching budgets to expand reach.”

Core papers for religious text applications include Custom Brite® and Bridge Supreme®.

NEW Award-Winning Children’s Book Combines “Gamification” with Important Life Lessons

The newly published book, ‘The Smart Playbook: Game-Changing Life Skills for a Modern World’ by Suzanne M. Wind, has become one of those “must have” resource for parents to keep around the house to help them impart to their kids the art of social graces.

Since its debut, the book is the proud recipient of seven awards including a Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold, Creative Child Magazine 2014 Book of The Year, The Toy Man® “Mom-Approved Comme Il Faut” Award, The Toy Man® eChoice Award, The Toy Man® Award of Excellence, The Toy Man® S.T.E.M Award, and The Mr. Dad Seal of Approval.

Aimed at teaching children confidence, integrity and empathy the book is chock-full of some awesome game-changing life skills that every child needs to know so as to truly understand the rules and know how to gracefully play the game of life in this modern world. Five of the SMART topics covered in the book, and designed to help children succeed, include:

• Social Skill Basics – The principles of modern manners
• Mealtime Manners – A guide to mealtime etiquette
• Art of Conversation – Face-to-face conversational skills
• Restaurant Behavior – The finer points of restaurant conduct
• Technology Talk – Internet safety and responsible usage

“The ‘gamification’ methods included in The SMART Playbook will help children ages 6-12 gain confidence, character, integrity and empathy in face-to-face situations and technology usage,” said Ms. Wind, a mom of three, who considers the book a “must have” for families.

As the creator of The SMART Playbook, Ms. Wind said the activity book uses a hands-on approach with more than 100 games and challenges to choose from. “The result: a happy and confident child thriving in a modern world,” assured Suzanne – a woman with an impossible mission to present families a simple and effective game plan to teach relevant life skills in a modern world.

Arguing that the world is changing faster than ever before has led Ms. Wind to believe parents and children are busier today than ever, and technology has and will continue to present new challenges they must face.

“But with all the texting, emailing, and posting, are children developing the social skills that will be required for lifelong happiness, confidence and success?” she questioned, but added, “That’s where The SMART Playbook comes into the picture. Parents and educators have called the book the perfect affordable solution to bring a little civility back to the 21st century.”

According to one reviewer, Suzanne has created a “fantastic, fun and interactive” book that’s right for both children and parents. She believes ‘The SMART Playbook is the perfect summer activity book, as it is designed to lead them in a collaborative effort to bring manners to a new generation.

The book is available as one complete book or by topic only. For more information, please visit www.thesmartplaybook.com. Also available for purchase at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble online.

Lillibett Books Releases a Treat for Little Noahs

The release of the movie, Noah, was big news accompanied by the usual ballyhoo. Following the noisy offering for adults, it seems only fitting that a version for young readers has been released by Lillibett Books. DON’T ROCK THE ARK is available at the company web http://www.lillibettbooks.com.

Young readers will delight in the wonderful illustrations and gentle humor in this delightful twist on the much-loved tale of Noah. The story begins with the traditional rounding-up of the animals, two by two, and their penning in the ark. Everything is quiet and peaceful … until the elephants begin making a fuss, their every move rocking the ark close to capsizing, protested loudly by the other occupants. There will be chuckles at the human-like expressions and behavior of the animals as they try to keep the elephants from moving through many humorous incidents. Excitement will grow with the wonder and guessing of who or what will save the day and stop the ark from capsizing.

With years of experience in the publishing industry as a designer, author, and illustrator, Elizabeth Rodger delivers a consistent quality of excellence throughout this big handsome hardbound, DON’T ROCK THE ARK.

A native of Scotland, Rodger graduated from the Glasgow School of art, a world renowned institution accredited by the University of Glasgow. She completed post graduate studies on children’s literature and illustration, and eventually fulfilled her dream of having her titles published by major companies such as Simon & Schuster, Random House, Scholastic, Golden Books, and others.

Located in Sparta, Northern New Jersey, Lillibett Books is a new publishing company devoted to books for children by Elizabeth Rodger. Information on future releases is available at http://www.lillibettbooks.com on the LittleKids page. And, with the releases Rodger hopes, just maybe, some children will get hooked on reading.

“Life Lessons for the Living: What the Dying Have Taught me”

If you’re over the age of 40, the odds are good that you’re either going to die of a terminal illness, or that you’re going to end-up caring for a family member or other loved one who will be diagnosed with one.

Here are the alarming facts:
• 1 in 5 will face a terminal illness due to some form of heart disease
• 1 in 7 will face a terminal illness due to some form of cancer
• 1 in 23 will face a terminal illness due to complications of a stroke

Most people truly are NOT prepared to take-on the responsibility of becoming a care giver to a family member or other loved one, much less face the fact that any one of us may be afflicted with a terminal illness.

When we are put in the care-giving position, we truly don’t know what to fully expect; what is considered normal or abnormal behavior as far as the bodily dying process is concerned, and basically, we truly don’t know what to do.

After all, we didn’t learn about any of this stuff in school.
Enlightened Monkey Publishing is pleased and proud to announce its latest book by author Bob McDowell, BCETS, (who is a near death experience survivor, noted thanatology expert and end-of-life counselor), titled, “Life Lessons for the Living: What the Dying Have Taught me.”

In this short digital book of approximately 29-pages which is available exclusively through Amazon-Kindle, the author educates readers about hospice and its many unique benefits, and then goes on to detail what might be considered “normal” in the bodily dying process while pointing out things that we specifically should and should not do in our position as a care giver, which are of great importance.

The author also relates what hundreds of hospice patients have shared with him over the years as far as their deepest regrets and the most common fears which have been expressed to him.

Some readers of this digital book may cause some to re-evaluate the priorities they’ve set for themselves which currently govern their daily lives.

To preview and order this highly enlightening Kindle book TODAY for the small investment of only $2.99, click HERE.

New Controversial Book Provides Spiritual Insight to Those People Who Seek Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries

At one time or another in your everyday life, you’ve probably pondered such questions as:

• What really happens upon bodily death?

• Why am I really here on earth?

• Why has my life turned-out the way that it has?

• Is the Bible really the word of God since millions of people are now questioning its validity?

• Since I don’t identify as a Christian, will I still be allowed in Heaven?

• Who or what is to blame for my child being born with multiple birth defects?

• Do married couples and families really stay together for all of eternity?

• What really happens when an individual commits suicide? Do they burn in Hell for all of eternity?

• Why would a loving God allow my child to die at such a young age?

• Why does it seem that God doesn’t answer any or all of my prayers?

• Am I really following the “right” or “one true” religion?

• Do I really need my body in Heaven after bodily death?

• Is it okay if my body is cremated?

• Why would a loving God allow so many people to live in virtual poverty and despair while others live lavish lifestyles?

• Perhaps you’re fearful of your pending life review when you (as many believe), stand before God to be judged, and you are concerned about spending eternity in hell?

If any of these questions or concerns have ever crossed your mind, then this highly-controversial book is for you!

“Answers about Life: Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries Revealed” is without reservation, the most valuable resource in the world when it comes to revealing the spiritual truths and knowledge that we all claim to be seeking, and it provides answers to all of the above-mentioned questions and concerns, plus many more.

It also answers the questions you didn’t realize that you had until you discover the answers to them.

In 1981, author Bob McDowell survived a full-blown near death “transcendent” experience, meaning that his experience went above and well-beyond that of a typical near death experience, in that he was provided with spiritual knowledge and truths which are not typically obtained by the millions of others who have had a near death experience.

This is evidenced by the spiritual lessons which he learned and brought back with him to share with others.

If you’ve read other books written by NDE survivors, you’ll quickly realize how the content contained within the pages of this book separates itself from all other NDE books on the market today, as it goes where no other book has gone before.

It took him many years to even talk about this experience with his closest friends and over 30 years to initially write about it because it was so shockingly profound, as it went against nearly everything that he had been brought-up to believe was true from his Protestant (Disciples of Christ) religious upbringing.

What makes “Answers about Life: Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries Revealed” so credible and separates it from all of the other books in this genre, is that it was written without any hidden agendas or prejudices whatsoever. McDowell is not a minister, pastor, Bishop, Elder, Priest or Rabbi.

He is not a psychic medium; he doesn’t talk to dead people and doesn’t profess to have any special powers, or even all of the answers. He has absolutely nothing to promote, other than the need for a more spiritual life.

Since his paranormal experience in 1981, he no longer affiliates himself with any earthly religion, and he has no desire whatsoever to promote himself or what he learned by engaging in radio or television interviews, as he’s not interested in fame, fortune, or becoming a household name.

He simply sees himself as a messenger-of-sorts, and in numerous instances throughout this book, he actually encourages his readers to form their own opinions based on the facts and (sometimes simple logic) which he presents.

This book is about complete honesty and integrity, and it manifests itself throughout the book.

“Answers about Life: Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries Revealed” is written in an easy-to-read conversational style and with a respectful tone as well. It stimulates the mind and gives readers a lot of food-for-thought.

Readers of this book will walk away with a completely different view of the world, the people around them, and themselves as well. They should also prepare themselves for a journey of spiritual growth, enlightenment and empowerment.

Female Clergy… Still A Controversy?

It would be hard to find a topic in the Christian sector that has drawn more controversy than the ordination of women in ministry. In her new book My Shade of Lipstick is Red (SOV Books), ordained minister, Joanne Williams, gives a candid and uncomfortable account of what it’s still like for 21st century women experiencing ‘the call’ — and the predictable backlash inside the denominational church system.

My Shade of Lipstick is Red book is a must-read for clergy women who have been pushed aside, put down and or pushed back into the ‘church kitchen’ when, in fact, they have just as much to say, teach and mentor as their male contemporaries; if not more, since the female perspective is well-known to be considerably more introspective and, in many cases, dare we say … more devoted?

In My Shade of Lipstick Williams covers first-hand many controversial topics, such as a glossary of her own, fledgling mistakes and the deliberate roadblocks set up against her by, both men and women, in the church system. The result is a treasure-trove of sound advice, coupled with solid teachings on understanding and developing one’s calling. Williams backs up her advice with us an authoritative catalog of instructions on what it takes to maximize one’s call to ministry and pave the way for the next army of female ministers.

Today, Minister Joanne Williams is the founder and president of Grace on Display Outreach Ministries, Los Angeles, California. She also serves as the director of Prison Ministries at her local church and is a member of Alliance of Clergy Women, which enhances the moral, social, educational, and spiritual development of women called into ministry.

Dave Skogen, chairman of Festival Foods, authors new book on business leadership

The publication of Boomerang! Leadership Principles That Bring the Customer Back has been announced by 9th Street Publishing of Green Bay. The book is written by Dave Skogen, chairman of the board of Skogen’s Festival Foods and a native of Onalaska, Wis.

In Boomerang!, Skogen provides insights and lessons based on his experiences over a period of nearly six decades in leading Festival Foods’ transformation from a single 3,000-square-foot grocery store into a regional supermarket chain. The book’s underlying idea is “the boomerang theory,” the fundamental principle that extraordinary hospitality rather than ordinary customer service brings people back and that organizations that go the extra mile can inspire customers to go the extra mile for them.

Prior to taking on the role of chairman at Festival Foods, Skogen served as CEO and president of the company for more than 30 years. He has also served in leadership roles with numerous community organizations as well as industry organizations including the Food Marketing Institute. He received an honorary degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 2012.

Festival Foods is a family and employee-owned company that was originally founded as Skogen’s IGA by Skogen’s father and mother in 1946 in Onalaska. Today the company operates 18 stores across Wisconsin and has more than 5,000 employees.

9th Street Publishing is a publisher of inspirational books and is co-owned by Joe and Danica Kiedinger. More information is available at www.9thstreetpublishing.com
