Such a powerful statement embodied in this piece of art made of stainless steel and bronze. According to Mr. Reiman, the symbolic bird soaring through a ring of the sun represents a future of wonder with the random letters that cover its form questioning the human experience and how we impact our future. I met with Mr. Reiman and his lovely wife Ruth right after the ceremony and I was truly touched by his kindness and great passion with which he spoke about his creation. I Love Arts and now I have a new favorite sculpture in my city created by an amazing artist”, Vovk said.

New Experiment Reveals ‘DNA of the mind’: Mystery Of Human Intelligence Solved

LONDON, UK, 2017-Jul-19 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — A solution to the ‘hard problem’ of human consciousness has finally been found, explaining how our minds work. In his new book, ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’, British author R R Deehan provides a simple and testable answer to a question that has long puzzled scientists and philosophers:- how do our minds bootstrap their way to consciousness? According to R R Deehan, “The answer was right under our noses all along, and it’s incredibly obvious, once you know what to look for.”

Older theories, such as the idea that humans possess ‘souls’, or that our minds somehow result from quantum effects, have failed to solve the hard problem, usually because they can’t be tested. In ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’, R R Deehan offers a short series of easy thought experiments that anybody can perform from the comfort of their own armchair. These experiments lay bare the secrets of your own mind and allow you to witness firsthand exactly why there’s a ‘you’ hovering inside your head, and what it’s capable of.

DNA is a four-letter chemical alphabet from which all living things are built, but the mental equivalent is even simpler, consisting of just three components that combine in straightforward ways to produce every aspect of your mind. The implications for this discovery are immense, and include a workable blueprint for a truly self-aware artificial intelligence based on the human model, as well as new ways to look at all the other ‘Big Questions’, such as ‘which came first? Consciousness or the universe’? With such notables as Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk warning about the possible dangers of artificial intelligence, ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’ offers a way to ensure we don’t accidentally open a Pandora’s Box of uncontrollable technology that could cause our own extinction.

About R R Deehan

R R Deehan graduated from The London School Of Economics, and went on to become involved in artificial intelligence as far back as the 1980s. His unique combination of skills provided the insight that became ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’, available from the website http://rrdeehan.com

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.”

“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.

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.

“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.

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

NAACP Poet Releases New Book of Poetry: Whispers in the Reign…And writes one for Trayvon!

NAACP poet, Lisa J. Smallwood, of the Orange County, California, chapter, has released a book of poetry entitled Whispers in the ReignThe book is dedicated to her sister, Letitia Denise Smallwood, who has been unjustly incarcerated, for the past forty-one years.

In 1973, Letitia Smallwood, now age sixty, was convicted of arson and double homicide. Her case is currently being reviewed by the Pennsylvania Innocence Project. According to forensic expert, Dr. Gerald Hurst, Letitia Smallwood could not have committed the murders. See his white paper at: http://truthinjustice.org/smallwood.htm

The works of her sister, poet Lisa J. Smallwood, stem from an accumulation of personal pain as a result of her family’s decades-long struggle to prove Letitia’s innocence.

In the meantime, Lisa J. Smallwood has everyone talking. First to take notice was the NAACP, Orange County Chapter, followed by the 2013 Los Angeles Million Women March.Smallwood’s collection of poetry is unabashed, deeply introspective and articulate. Drawn from real-life experience, she has the rare ability to take us on a journey of splendid persuasions, ranging from the quiet moments in her garden to the soul’s deepest contemplation of despair. Her epic Abuse 101 sounds the alarm for female empowerment, while her well-known Sisters My Sisters complete her rise to poetic stardom. With ghostly images that transcend each page, her recent piece Why, Travyon, Why? reflects today’s undercurrent of outrage after the Zimmerman verdict. Why Trayvon Why? is of course, raw and superb!

Find Lisa J. Smallwood’s Whispers in the Reign at Amazon.com/books.

Elaine Feuer’s To Gently Leave This Life: The Right To Die

Physician-assisted death is legal in four states in the U.S. and in three countries in Europe. In 2012, two court cases involving assisted death have set the stage for new international precedents regarding euthanasia legislation worldwide. In Canada, Gloria Taylor, who suffered from Lou Gehrig’s disease, was granted the right to die by British Columbia’s Supreme Court. Canada’s federal government is appealing the decision. In Britain, “locked-in” patient Tony Nicklinson pleaded his case to Britain’s High Court but was denied the right to die despite the tortured nightmare that was his existence. For people who are suffering from a terminal or incurable illness, the option of a peaceful passing is the issue at the forefront of modern society. Assessing the quality of life, and allowing patients who suffer from debilitating pain and dependence on others to gently leave this life, gives people a dignified alternative. Read To Gently Leave This Life to learn what you need to know about end-of-life decisions.

Elaine Feuer’s critically acclaimed exposé, Innocent Casualties: The FDA’s War Against Humanity, is now available with 2012 Updates at

Mediaman Howard Needle Celebrates 2-Year Anniversary Of Alternative Solutions Media – A Unique Marketing Company That Brings Recovery Programs And People Suffering From Addiction Together

In June of 2011, media executive Howard Needle launched a company specifically focused on promoting rehabilitation and recovery to the addicted community. He realized that many people suffering from addiction are unwilling to check themselves into a facility, and the idea of self treatment with online support would be appealing to them. His company, Alternative Media Solutions, was founded on the premise that people suffering from addiction will respond to informative TV commercials and radio campaigns, and then visit an online site that offers support.

Tips and guidance on self-healing are provided on this site but also, descriptions of recovery programs and facilities—with video—can be viewed. What this achieves is that many people looking to self treat end up contacting a recovery facility or program and finding a much more effective treatment process.

“I am very proud of my company,” states founder and president, Howard Needle. “I knew there had to be a way to bring those who are addicted together with those who can really help them. Utilizing volume buying power and my relationships with media companies, I am able to provide recovery businesses with a complete media package at a significant discount, allowing them to reach more patients and help more people than they ever could have without the media campaign. I’ve reached my two year anniversary and I am here to stay.”

Needle has working relationships with media experts in every state,  and so is able to service clients from around the country. Top quality videos that highlight the recovery facilities are also placed online for potential patients to watch. Needle and his team serve clients of various sizes and budgets. Quotes for media campaigns are provided at no charge, and can be localized, regional or national.

Robert J. Moore Presents My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation: A New Beginning

May 11, 2013: Robert J. Moore is proud to announce the official publication of My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation: A New Beginning, his revealing, eye-opening new memoir.

About The Book
I was entrenched in alcohol and drugs for a long period of time. I was lost and adrift, with no future. When God helped me find my way and turned me to recovery in 2005, doors opened that I could not have imagined.

Volunteering at numerous places such as the Orillia Youth Centre, Telecare distress phone line, and Bethel Baptist Church, allowed me to receive the Lieutenant Governor’s Community Volunteer Award for Students and be nominated for both the “Order of Orillia Award” and Orillia Citizen of the Year 2012.

In 2006, I returned to school to get my high school diploma and now have diplomas in Addictions and Social Service Worker. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and Science Degree in Psychology at Lakehead University. Today, I am a motivational speaker and plan to use my experience and my Christian faith to empower troubled youth. Nothing is impossible, and dreams can come true!

For an enticing preview of My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation, visit Moore’s official website to view its compelling book trailer: http://robertsjourney.ca

My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation is available as a digital download from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other retailers. The book is also available in paperback format ($17.95, ISBN: 9781483957531, 156 pp). For more information, please visit http://robertsjourney.ca

About The Author
Robert Moore was totally destitute. Homeless and alone, he had alienated his friends and family with his drug and alcohol addiction, and had nowhere to turn. He thought his journey was over, and his path was at a dead end. Then, a miracle happened…

Robert Moore has done what historically very few people have been able to do: come back from a long history of drug and alcohol addiction, a life with no purpose, no education and no hope, to a place of hope, completing an education, and accomplishing goals at a breakneck speed. All while at the same time writing his autobiography and doing motivational speaking, to help others who are also on this long and difficult path.

This is the story of a man who was once driven by demons and is now driven by hope, courage and the desire for a better life. Robert was able to reach out to God and the church for help to get past those demons, and take the right path towards salvation and his true life path.

My Journey Through Addiction to Salvation: A New Beginning tells Robert’s story, from his youth to where he is today. Whether you are someone who is somewhere on this journey yourself, someone helping others, or a passerby, you need to read this inspiring story and be inspired yourself by Robert’s journey.

Robert is also available for motivational speaking, and has been interviewed on Inspirational Transformational TV Show, Rogers TV (Catching up with Kelly), and Rogers TV (Barrie Daytime).

My Journey Through Addiction to Salvation: A New Beginning is available through Robert’s website at www.robertsjourney.ca and online through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Chapters Indigo.

New Book: Grace of the Cast off Cross – The Decision is Always Ours

In March of 1942 7,000 American, British, and Dutch Japanese POWs on the island of Java were ordered into camps. Dolf Unger, a Corporal in the Dutch Royal Army was one of these soldiers. Newly married with an infant daughter Dolf was not to see his wife and daughter for over three years. This book is a compilation of articles, letters, and mementoes documenting his camp experiences. Dolf’s story is not just one of survival, but of spiritual transformation.

For Dolf this transformation began one cold fall day when he was forced to shovel scrap metal. In a moment of utter despair; as he cried out silently to God, he kicked a pile of scrap metal. God’s answer came in the form of a perfectly shaped four-inch iron cross, which landed on his boot. Dolf soon became involved in a Christian community in the camp called “The Church Under The Cross”. The spiritual growth and transformation of this community of sick, starving, and often beaten men offers a greater context to Dolf’s own spiritual Journey.

That Dolf’s witness and that of “The Church Under The Cross” speaks so unerringly to the church and culture of our own time hints that God’s providential hand is at work here. It witnesses to the many churches to mired in outdated tradition, and legalistic doctrine to the meet the challenges of a cynical materialistic culture. It also offers a powerful witness to the individual Christian that we can experience the saving, and liberating love of Christ even when our external circumstances seem hopeless.

How to Order:

E-Book Kindle Edition just released for $3.99 on amazon.com

Book Price is $16.95 and may be ordered by sending a check to the church – St. John’s United Church of Christ, 8065 William Penn Highway, Easton, PA 18045-2938. Shipping is included – no extra shipping charge.
