SUS! Justin Trudeau's economics, brings Canada back to 1972?

Sweating the small stuff: Scandals and the strange way we count government spending - Liberal expenses aren't insignificant, even if they are only a fraction of the federal budget

Federal Health Minister Jane Philpott, speaking to reporters at the Liberal cabinet retreat on Sunday, publicly apologized for the cost of hiring a car service.

By Aaron Wherry, CBC News - "Justin Trudeau's Liberals are racking up billions of dollars in new debt on the shoulders of all Canadians. Their projected deficit for 2016 alone is $30 BILLION!" the Conservative Party laments at LiberalDebt.ca, a website presumably created to mock the Liberal government's deficit-spending. "Along with this big spending comes the same old Liberal entitlement." So far, the Conservatives list 11 allegedly egregious expenses, four of which, starting with the health minister's bill for a car service, have emerged over the past week. All told, the purported profligacy amounts to approximately $1.3 million, most of which was spent setting up offices for a new ministry dedicated to infrastructure.   McKenna calls for review after $6,600 photography bill at climate summit   Trudeau cabinet has car trouble on the way to bigger things  Philpott's use of Liberal-friendly car service to be probed

A glimmer of a chance for a settlement in Syria ?  

Child being treated in Syrian hospital

Is something shifting in the diplomacy surrounding the Syria crisis that might offer just a glimmer of a chance for a settlement?

By Jonathan Marcus Defence and diplomatic correspondent - Turkey - a long-standing supporter of the Syrian rebels is drawing ever closer to both Russia and Iran - President Assad's closest allies. The US and Russia have long been seen as having incompatible goals in Syria, with Moscow backing the Assad regime and Washington seeing his departure as an essential pre-condition for the defeat of so-called Islamic State. But the two have now been meeting for weeks in search of a deal. In the coming days, US Secretary of State John Kerry will again meet his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov with conflicting reports as to whether some kind of understanding is possible. The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan too is engaged in high-level talks - with an important visit to Tehran thought to be in the offing. Major escalation risk But as a corrective to any undue optimism there's also just been a reminder of how close the crisis in Syria really is to a major escalation.

Hundreds of Colombians have celebrated an historic peace accord between the government and left-wing Farc rebels, signed after 52 years of conflict. The announcement was broadcast live on Wednesday from Havana , Cuba , where peace talks have been held for more than two years. The conflict has killed an estimated 220,000 people and displaced millions. President Juan Manuel Santos called the deal "the beginning of the end to the suffering, pain and tragedy of war". 'War is over' "The Colombian government and the Farc announce that we have reached a final, full and definitive accord," Colombian government and Farc negotiators said in a joint statement.  Who are the Farc?   Video Deal offers 'ray of hope'  Colombia's Farc rebels - 50 years of conflict   Guerrilla leader who talks peace

Quake damage in Amatrice (24 August 2016)

The death toll in the Italian earthquake has risen to at least 247 as thousands of rescuers continue efforts to find survivors.

Dozens are believed trapped in ruined Amatrice, Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto, in mountainous central Italy . The search went on through the night, and there was a strong aftershock which rocked already damaged buildings. More than 4,300 rescuers are using heavy lifting equipment and their bare hands. Many of the victims were children, the health minister said, and there were warnings the toll could rise further.

Maldives president faces 'removal plot'

The president of the Maldives , Abdulla Yameen, faces an impending challenge to his increasingly shaky rule in the island nation, sources tell the BBC.

Maldives President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom attends a welcome ceremony at the Bandaranaike International Airport in Katunayake on January 21, 2014.

A move to oust the president of the Maldives is being planned, the BBC has learned.

Sources say opponents of Abdulla Yameen in the tiny island nation are looking to move against him within weeks. His spokesman told the BBC they knew of claims of an attempt to "overthrow" the government, describing it as a "clear breach of international norms". The Maldives has seen frequent protests amid fears Mr Yameen's rule could see a return to its repressive past. The luxury tourist destination only became a democracy in 2008 when Mohamed Nasheed became its first freely elected leader, ending three decades of autocratic rule under Mr Yameen's half-brother, Maumoon Abdul Gayoom. The details of what is being planned remain obscure, but when put to the government they described it as a "formal attempt at 'legally' overthrowing the government".

Turkey-backed rebels take Syrian town

Syrian rebels, backed by Turkish forces and US air cover, say they have taken the Syrian town of Jarablus from jihadists of so-called Islamic State.

Relatives grieve at hospital August 20, 2016 in Gaziantep

Turkey 's biggest cities have witnessed a spate of deadly bombings and a bloody attempted coup this year. For so long a beacon of stability between Europe and the Middle East , Turkey has entered a period of high tension. It has long fought Kurdish militants in its restive east. Now it is trying to prevent Islamist militant violence spreading up from Syria and is cracking down on thousands of people suspected of supporting the failed coup. How dangerous is the current crisis? The latest bombing, on 20 August, targeted a wedding in Gaziantep , close to the south-eastern border with Syria , well away from the main population centres. But Istanbul and Ankara have seen a series of deadly attacks too, and the failed coup took place on the streets of both cities, with the loss of 240 lives on 15 and 16 July. Tanks rolled on to the streets and fighter jets targeted parliament in Ankara , as rebel troops commandeered the bridges across the Bosphorus.  Video Agony after wedding bomb    Bomb survivor haunted by attacks   Turkey v Syria's Kurds v IS   How dangerous is Turkey unrest?

'Gangster grannies' and China 's shadow banking world

So what is shadow banking? Michael Pettis from Peking University has described it as "the financial activity that exists outside the formal banking sector".

Yuan bills

Karishma Vaswani Asia business correspondent  - Think of the words shadow banking, and you'll probably conjure up an image of a slick-suited, smooth-talking mafia-esque character who will most likely be found in seedy bars or night clubs. But in China , sometimes it could be a 60-year-old woman running the show, and that may have serious consequences. This week, state media reported that a clampdown on shadow banking in China uncovered $30bn (£23bn) worth of illegal banking activity. It may seem a staggering figure, but analysts say this is just the tip of the iceberg. So what is shadow banking?  Michael Pettis from Peking University has described it as "the financial activity that exists outside the formal banking sector".

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp

Amber Heard is to donate her $7m (£5.3m) divorce settlement from Johnny Depp to two charities that work with abused women and ill children.

Heard will give half to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to prevent violence against women, and half to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. The actress said she hoped to "help those less able to defend themselves". She earlier accused Depp of striking her and throwing a mobile phone during a fight. He denied the allegations. 'Money played no role' Depp's lawyer claimed she had made the accusations in order to obtain a more favourable settlement. Announcing their divorce settlement on Tuesday, the pair said their relationship was "intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love".  Depp and Heard reach divorce settlement   Depp ordered to stay away from wife

The Health Benefits of the Vegan Lifestyle

TORONTO , ON ( August 2016 ) — being a vegan is more a lifestyle choice than it is a diet. People choose the vegan lifestyle for various reasons including animal rights and welfare, religious beliefs, disease prevention or control, or simply to become more environmentally friendly. What better way to reduce your carbon footprint than avoiding animal products. “There’s definitely been a renewed interest in all things vegan,” says Dr. Tushar Mehta, Family Physician and Founder of Run for The Earth. “The vegan lifestyle has changed from expensive and difficult, and has become a lot more accessible thanks to the increase in vegan dining options, DIY recipes, and the incredible amount of educational resources available.”  If you are thinking of switching to the vegan lifestyle, here is a list of health benefits you can start looking forward to. 1.      Lower risk of cancer: Research has shown that eating animal fats and proteins is linked to a higher risk of developing cancer. Men with early stage prostate cancer have been able to reverse the progression of their illness by changing to a vegan lifestyle.  Similar studies have also shown that women who eat very little or no meat have a much lower rate of breast cancer than those who consume more animal products. 2.      Lower risk of cardiovascular health issues: Reducing the amount of saturated fats often found in dairy products and meats, and instead eating nuts and whole grains can improve your overall cardiovascular health.  3.      Lower cholesterol and blood pressure: Studies show that eliminating animal based foods and changing to a vegan lifestyle rich in whole grains, plays a key role in lowering high blood pressure. Plant-based diets with lots of vegetables and fruits contain very little to no cholesterol so it is no surprise that it is good for your heart.   4.      Increased energy: In addition to good nutrition and disease prevention, being a vegan also brings various physical benefits including much higher energy.  5.      Improved complexion: There have been instances when people suffered from long-term acne issues and found their skin changed completely when switching to a vegan diet. The nuts and vitamins A and E often found in vegetables play a key role in making this happen. “The number one question I get from people interested in switching to vegan is how to get the nutrients you would normally get from animal-based products,” adds Dr. Mehta. “It’s simple. Beans, nuts, lentils, cereals, soy products, whole grains, and chick peas are only a few of the various plant-based sources that can help vegans meet their protein, vitamin B or iron needs among others.” Studies suggest that those following a vegan or even a vegetarian lifestyle live an average of three to six years longer than meat-eaters. However, it is important to keep in mind that becoming a vegan is only one part of leading an overall healthy lifestyle and it cannot make up for other unhealthy habits. Find out today how a vegan diet makes your body stronger, more attractive and more energetic, all while helping improve the environment.   For more information, please visit Veg Food Fest. Follow @VegFoodFest or ‘Like’ them on Facebook. ABOUT VEG FOOD FEST: Toronto ’s Veg Food Fest is the largest vegan food festival in North America , celebrating 32 years of delicious food that you never thought could be vegan. Enjoy free samples, live music, cooking demonstrations, presentations, new products and scrumptious food that will change your mouth’s mind. Veg Food Fest is presented by the Toronto Vegetarian Association and takes place September 9-11 at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto .

Introducing a "Capital-less" Model When Funds Are Lacking

Researcher and information system expert proposes a new capital creation process to revive dying economies

MONTREAL – When crisis hits, can America 's capitalist system survive without sufficient capital to fuel its economy? How would that work? Dr. Anthony Horvath, a retired professor from the University of Quebec , has produced a system that will prove that it can indeed be done in his new book, "CAPITALlessISM." In "CAPTIALlessISM," Horvath shows readers an in-depth look at the democratic economy and guides them to understand its intricacies and flaws in order for them to come up with unique solutions for their systems. "In my book I break down the current economy by viewing it through a unique lens as a dynamic circulation of financial information and how individuals can rebuild a capital-less free enterprise system for the democratic nation," Horvath said. Horvath also discusses national debts, as they are a major topic in the political arena and a concern to billions of individuals. Through his contributions to our economic crisis, Anthony's examination serves as potential solutions to debts. "Through research and findings, I propose a virtual E-capital creation process and a capital circulation system similar to our blood circulatory system," Horvath said. Horvath's writing serves all audiences at all education levels, which makes learning about the economy easier. Through Horvath's created system, he uses similarities between vital information flow in an organization and vital capital flow to create a self-sufficient national economy that would sustain everyone.

Horvath is a retired professor from from the University of Quebec and a long-time educational technology consultant for McGill University 's Dental department and for the Quebec Ministry of Education. Currently, Horvath is a director of the Canadian Hungarian Chamber of Commerce. Horvath resides in Montreal and enjoys physics, mathematics, and cooking.

13:24 – A Dark Thriller

Special to The Montreal Tribune - Leesburg, FL, August 9, 2016 – M. Dolon Hickmon's 13:24 – A Dark Thriller is a unique survivor-driven public outreach, intended to deepen public awareness of crimes against children and of the lingering impacts of PTSD. Published with the financial backing of nearly one hundred child abuse survivors and their allies, the project has been enormously successful to date: honored with a starred review in Publishers Weekly's Best Books annual special issue, the book is now shelved in libraries from
Helena , Montana to Zürich , Switzerland . The Kindle edition of 13:24 – A Dark Thriller is a current Top 25 Best Seller in Amazon's "Child Abuse" and "Vigilante Justice Thrillers" categories. "I have written and published essays and research on child abuse and excessive corporal punishment since 2006," Hickmon says. "I eventually realized that although studies were being done and papers being written, the latest advances in our understanding of early trauma were not reaching the public. My solution was to create a fast-paced crime thriller that would combine elements of my own experiences with true crime headlines and cutting-edge research into the neurobiological basis of PTSD. With the help of a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, I assembled an amazing team of publishing veterans with hundreds of fiction best sellers between them."  The result is a heart-pounding, ripped-from-the-headlines crime thriller that sensitively guides readers through the spiritual, physical, and emotional consequences of child abuse and the lifelong process of overcoming it. Publishers Weekly raved: "Hickmon unleashes a shocking blitzkrieg of murder, conspiracy, and child abuse in this disturbing, breathlessly plotted murder mystery [...] Eschewing easy answers for moral complexity, this thriller is unsettling entertainment that offers catharsis." The accuracy of the book's complex portrayals have been attested to by child abuse survivors and trauma experts alike: "Mr. Hickmon writes with the clarity, power and passion of someone who really knows what he is writing about, and who understands the wide range of responses human beings experience when trying to deal with lives affected by ongoing trauma," declared Bristol University trauma researcher and emeritus professor Dr. Kim Etherington, in her pre-publication review; "There are textbooks that explain the scientific mechanisms that underpin post traumatic stress disorder, but this book tells a story that reaches out to help us all understand." The book's back cover effectively distills the plot: "Detective William Hursel has worked countless murder cases; staring down the cruelest deeds humanity has to offer. But nothing prepares him for what he'll uncover while pursuing 14-year-old Christopher Pesner, a suspect in the brutal rage-killing of his own mother. While news reports focus on Chris's odd obsession with the violent, blasphemous heavy metal band, Rehoboam, Hursel suspects a deeper motive — a hunch that is confirmed when Chris's second victim is discovered. Racing to piece together the identity of Chris's next target, Hursel unearths the shocking link between an embattled politician, a controversial celebrity evangelist, and a shadowy underworld where human traffickers ply the wealthy with unseemly indulgences." Author M. Dolon Hickmon is a writer, activist, and a survivor of religious child maltreatment. His writings can be found on news websites like AlterNet, OnFaith, and Salon, and his opinion pieces have appeared in newspapers such as the Scotsman, the South Lake Press, and the Bainbridge (GA) Post-Searchlight. Hickmon has been interviewed by local and nationally syndicated radio talk show hosts, including Washington DC based Sex, Politics and Religion with Jamila Bey, Live from Seattle with Doug Bursch, and the Los Angeles-based Jesse Lee Peterson show.  Hickmon's original research continues to be cited by many and was included in a 2010 civil rights presentation to a committee of the US Congress. His hobbies include reading, songwriting, and playing acoustic and electric guitar. He lives with his wife and their daughter.

Hillary Rodham Clinton: On The Couch

Getting to Know Our Former First Lady and Potential Next President

Carlisle, PA.
August 9, 2016 – The widely popular On the Couch series by Alma Bond, Ph.D. has given us an opportunity to discover the lives of Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O through the eyes of renowned New York psychoanalyst, Dr. Darcy Dale.  The fictionalized biographies provided a unique and revealing perspective of their lives.  Now, readers are invited to learn about our former First Lady and presidential hopeful in Hillary Rodham Clinton: On the Couch.  Dr. Bond captures the details found in other biographies dedicated to the life of Hillary, in a way which provides deep insight into her personality and character. If you read this book, you will feel you understand Mrs. Clinton very well, and you may even learn something about yourself. In Hillary Clinton: On the Couch, Clinton seeks psychiatric help to deal with her husband's infidelities. Psychoanalyst Dr. Darcy Dale encourages Hillary to talk about her past – everything from her father ruling with an iron fist, to why she was called "Sister Frigidaire" in high school, to her role as First Lady of Arkansas and subsequently, the First Lady of the United States of America .   Hillary Clinton is funny, a bit sarcastic and very intelligent.  Bond provides interesting insights into what Hillary could have been thinking during pinnacle times in her life, and her state of mind from a psychoanalyst's point of view.  While this book is technically fiction, the facts themselves are all true: Only the thoughts and feelings attributed to Mrs. Clinton are fictitious, along with the story of her "analysis." Dr. Bond's extensive research into the life of Hillary Clinton, along with her professional knowledge of psychology and her beautiful style of writing, make this biography an enthralling and entertaining read. "It's easy to want to get to know the essential Hillary Clinton and want to hear her story," says Dr. Bond. "After reading pretty much everything ever written on Hillary, and then having written a book in which my alter ego, also a psychoanalyst, carries on 69 fictionalized sessions with Hillary, I think I have a very good idea what and how Hillary thinks.  To say Hillary Clinton is an amazing woman is an understatement."  Alma H. Bond received her Ph.D. from Columbia University , and became a highly successful psychoanalyst in private practice for 37 years in New York City . She "retired" to become a full-time writer. She's written 23 books and her popular On the Couch has received excellent reviews.  Jackie O: On the Couch, the first of Bond's On the Couch series received a Pinnacle Book Achievement Award.  Bond also wrote the play, "Maria," about the life of Maria Callas.  The play was produced off-off Broadway, toured the South and will be produced in London next year.

Dr. Abe Bortz, Historian:  "Every American should read this book, as should every world leader. In fact, so should the people in every country around the world, because it seems evident to me that she will be America 's next president." Norm Goldman, Publisher, Bookpleasures.com:  "With her most recent tome, Hillary Rodham Clinton On The Couch, Dr. Alma H. Bond has once again used her skills as a psychoanalyst, combined them with extensive research, and put together a fascinating look at the life of her subject, this time the former first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton ... She has skillfully assembled a vivid chronicle of a strong woman who has faced immense challenges throughout her life and was able to pull through no matter how painful the journey. Bond's take on the details of this captivating woman are compelling and convincing, even if you, like many, don't like Hillary and, as many will do, question her accomplishments if she decides to run for President." Midwest Book Review:  "There have been so many books written about our former First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of our country, Senator, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Not all put her in a good light, I might add. If you look at the picture on the cover of this book, you will see an older lady. The lines on her face are there because she has given almost her whole life to helping others. Look into her eyes and you will find the love she has for our country and her family... People seem to forget her many accomplishments. This book has opened my eyes so that I can see who, and why, Hillary is the person she is, and how she has managed to overcome so many obstacles that have come her way."   Ann Beardsley, author, Historical Dictionary of NASA and the Space Program:  "What an amazing book! Dr. Bond really gets into the mind of her subjects, and this one on Hillary Rodham Clinton is no exception. The reader can easily imagine Clinton sitting in a comfortable chair across from the imaginary Dr. Dale, spilling her heart and her secrets, a cup of tea beside her, and her smartphone carefully switched off for 50 minutes at a time. But that doesn't mean there's no meat here. Bond's portrayal of Clinton delves into her background, her relationship with Bill (with all of its ups and downs), her years as a lawyer and as the family breadwinner, and how she feels about motherhood and grandmotherhood. Bond's earlier books dealt with women who have already entered into history; Clinton is her first one dealing with a living person."

Illusions Of Wealth Brings Investors Common

Sense Answers To Difficult Questions About Investing

San Diego, CA, August 2,  2016 –  An understanding of how money, economics and investing work in our country is essential for anyone concerned about their future. In Illusions of Wealth by Doug Eberhardt, he provides the framework for making better choices. "I hope to give my readers the awareness and confidence they need to develop investment strategies on their own," he says. "To keep your wealth from being an illusion, you must possess the ability to adjust your portfolio as the economic and investment climates change. I want to grant you control of your future and your wealth." Because an inadequate education system may have failed to teach us how to invest, we relinquish control to advisors who may or may not have our best interests at heart. This book is written to bring readers the awareness, confidence and insight necessary to overcome the future panics, crashes, and crises that will inevitably arise, and teach them how to profit whether the market is rising or falling. Investors need to ask themselves these types of questions: What are the economic conditions on the horizon that can affect your wealth? Why do you invest the way you do? Who do you trust for investment advice, and why? How much do they make from their recommendations to you? Did they protect your portfolio during the last financial crisis? Is another financial crisis around the corner? How have you structured your portfolio differently to protect your wealth if we were to experience another economic downturn? Doug Eberhardt is the author of the precious metals investment book Buy Gold and Silver Safely. Doug has been in the investment management business for over 30 years and is now sharing his years of research and discovery, accurately pinpointing economic and investment conditions for his readers.

Dr. Buckley's twenty years as a pediatrician and functional medicine specialist and Eugene 's hands-on professional sports experience combine to create a comprehensive guide empowering parents to help their children prevent injury, recognize the sometimes-subtle signs an injury has occurred or may occur, and to heal the injuries that almost all energetic kids will, at one point or another, inevitably sustain.   Accessible science, practical advice, and fun ways to get your kids invested in their own health—Youth Sports: Start Here is a valuable guide for every parent raising his or her own, home-grown champion.  Julie A.

That Damn Dialysis: A Brighter Look At A Lifesaving Treatment

Stafford , TX , July, 2016 – With more than 100,000 people diagnosed every year with end-stage renal disease and a chronic shortage of donated kidneys for transplant, dialysis is the only treatment option. But dialysis has its unique emotional, physical and financial costs, and no one knows it better than Cindy Barclay, author of That Damn Dialysis (Claybar Publishing).After twenty years as a registered nurse working with patients diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, she is also the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Quality Dialysis, the leading staff-assisted home dialysis company in the state of Texas. Most important, however, is her commitment to being a patient advocate. "I want people to understand the disease process and understand what is happening to them," she says. "So I created a fictional character, Cledus B. Washington, and readers share in his experiences as a new dialysis patient." That Damn Dialysis provides an empathetic account of what a dialysis patient goes through on a daily basis with medical personnel, family and friends, and covers everything from medical questions to matters of the heart. An attractive, witty, and hardworking 50-year-old, Cledus's world is turned upside down when he is diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. His girlfriend leaves him, his mother tries to take over his life, and his financial security is severely compromised as his world shrinks down to monitoring the buzzing sound of his "lifeline" that confirms he is alive. Cledus's story, told with compassion and humor, encompasses the uncertainty, fears, and frustration of day-to-day living while coping with this disease. Dubbed the "Diva of Dialysis," Cindy Barclay has become one of Houston 's most respected and successful women in business. Cindy believes her professional success revolves around the fact that she sees herself not just a business woman, but as a patient advocate, bringing dignity and respect to her clients.  A single mom, Cindy raised two daughters, Gennevive and Maria, and resides in the Houston area.

New Breakthroughs In The Drive For Peace In The Middle East :

 Changing Public Opinion Through Interfaith Unification

Paris , France , July, 2016 - Frank Romano, PhD, doesn't merely talk about the possibility of sustainable peace in the Middle East , he champions programs through interfaith unification and has seen first-hand the results of these efforts.  Even though he has found himself in dangerous situations, he has spent decades of his life working towards peace in the Middle East and his efforts are documented in Love and Terror in the Middle East (4th edition). Frank Romano's story began decades ago with a move from California to France to study philosophy. He later ventured to Morocco on his way to the Middle East , where he was to participate in the interfaith peace movement. In his quest for the universal religion, which at first he thought might be Islam (meaning "peace"), he soon realized that the Islamic cult he met had little to do with peace and more to do with radicalism. After daring to ask questions relating to Islam and women, he was wrongly accused by Muslim extremists of being a Zionist spy and was imprisoned. This ultimately led to a spiritual awakening and, eventually, to his escape. Dr. Romano just returned to Paris from a month in the Middle East , during which time he organized interfaith groups and peace demonstrations. He also endeavors to be a part of what is certain to be more involvement by the American public relating to Middle East issues.  His hope is to create a positive impact on American thinking which seems to be more open to interfaith peace activities. Dr. Frank Romano is a lawyer (in France and the US ), author, speaker, and professor of law, literature, history and philosophy of law at the University of Paris, France, and continues to be an advocate for peace in the Middle East . Finally, he will be coming to your location for a book signing:  Wednesday, August. 3 at 8 pm.

Jump Cut: Rushing Towards Summer's End With Exceptional Espionage Action

Chicago, IL, July,  2016 – Libby Hellmann fans will be delighted to hear her protagonist Ellie Foreman, Chicago video producer, is back after a ten year hiatus... and soon entangled in a web of espionage, murder and suspicion that threatens to destroy what she holds most dear.
Libby Fischer Hellmann, author of Jump Cut (Poisoned Pen Press), is the author of eleven previous novels, and this is her fifth in the award-winning Ellie Foreman mystery series. Jump Cut touches on many issues of what she calls the "Post-Snowden era" – privacy vs the possible overreach of official surveillance; the "clean war" of drone attacks, and computer hacking. Hired to produce a candy floss corporate profile, Ellie is dismayed when the project is canceled; her suspicions soar when a contact who might have answers is killed by a subway train before they can talk. In the confusion, she finds a seemingly abandoned pack of cigarettes with a flash drive inside that belonged to the now-dead man. Ellie has the drive's contents decrypted, but before long she discovers she's under surveillance. Ellie and her boyfriend, Luke, try to find answers, but they don't realize how far they ventured into the dangerous echelons of hidden power... where more lives are on the line, including theirs. Libby Fischer Hellmann left a career in broadcast news in
Washington , DC and moved to Chicago 35 years ago, where she, naturally, began to write gritty crime fiction. Twelve novels and twenty short stories later, she claims they'll take her out of the Windy City feet first. She has been nominated for many awards in the mystery and crime writing community and has even won a few. With the addition of Jump Cut in 2016, her novels include the now five-volume Ellie Foreman series, which she describes as a cross between "Desperate Housewives" and "24;" the hard-boiled 4-volume Georgia Davis PI series, and three stand-alone historical thrillers that Libby calls her "Revolution Trilogy." Her short stories have been published in a dozen anthologies, the Saturday Evening Post, and Ed Gorman's "25 Criminally Good Short Stories" collection.  In 2005 Libby was the national president of Sisters In Crime, a 3500-member organization dedicated to the advancement of female crime fiction authors. She also hosts a monthly radio show called "Second Sunday Crime" on the Authors on the Air internet radio network.

The Massacre In Orlando Shows Just How Unprepared Our Nation Is In The Fight To Stop Domestic Terrorism

Black Mountain, NC, July 15, 2016 - Military expert, author and historian Dr. William R. Forstchen believes ISIS will soon target schools, interstate highways and churches in the U.S. "They said they're bringing the war to us, to our children and civilians," says Forstchen, "Sadly, it's just beginning..." This is the terrifying premise of his most recent book, Day of Wrath, which is again drawing significant attention.  A number of security experts and law enforcement officials observe that Day of Wrath is not just a warning, but should be viewed literally as a "training scenario," when considering how to protect our schools from a terrorist assault similar to the massacres created by Islamic terrorists in Beslan, Russia in 2004 and Pakistan in 2014. Although it's a work of fiction, the actual threat is critical and highly probable. For that reason Day of Wrath went directly to ebook self-publication. "This story must reach the public immediately and should be used as a platform for debate as to how to respond and stop
ISIS ," he explains. A print version is also available now. Forstchen, author of more than fifty books, presents a horrifying but likely scenario in Day of Wrath. Forstchen's heart-stopping novella brings home just how vulnerable our infrastructure really is. It is also a story of heroic efforts to save lives, while sounding a wake-up call to American citizens and their government. William R. Forstchen is a New York Times bestselling author and holds a doctoral degree from Purdue University with a specialization in military history and technology. He is a noted expert historian and public speaker and has been interviewed on FOX News, C-SPAN, and Coast to Coast on topics ranging from history to technology and cultural issues, to space technology development, to security threats. Other recent works by Forstchen include One Second After and One Year After, both NYT best sellers examining the potential threat against our nation's electrical infrastructure by means of an EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) attack launched by Iran .

Connecting With Coincidence

Brings A Far Greater Meaning To What Appears To Be Mere Coincidence

"Coincidence studies is a newly developing science (and)... In Dr. Beitman's engaging book, we become fellow travelers in his quest to examine the unknown, exploring chance, human attachments, and that intersection of brain, mind, cosmos and love."─Randall
Weingarten , MD , Adjunct Professor Department of Psychiatry Stanford University. Charlottesville, VA, June 22, 2016 ─ In Connecting with Coincidence: The New Science for Using Synchronicity and Serendipity in Your Life (HCI Books—March 2016--$15.95), Dr. Bernard Beitman acknowledges that some coincidences will be best explained by randomness, personal responsibility, and Divine Mystery, but most times by a combination of the three. We've all experienced or heard of surprising events and unexplainable coincidences—money that seems to come from nowhere, a spontaneous idea that turns into a life-changing solution, meeting our soulmate on a flight we weren't supposed to take, or families being reunited by "accident" after years of separation. Often these coincidences are explained as being controlled by a higher power or pure chance. But for the first time since Carl Jung's work, comes bold new research that explains scientifically how we can identify, understand, and perhaps even control the frequency of coincidences in our everyday lives. Connecting with Coincidence is filled with the interesting anecdotes of Dr. Bernard's clients and associates. Simulpathity, or the act of feeling someone else's stress while at a distance, governs the cause of most of these coincidental incidents. Family members, friends, and associates are not exclusive in experiencing simulpathity, strangers like one of Dr. Bernard's research participants bears witness to this. The anonymous participant was going through a marital separation due to the abuse in her relationship. While on the way to meet up with her estranged husband, the participant found herself on the other end of a misdialed call with a woman who was in an abusive relationship as well, and terrified out of her mind. Because of this coincidental call, the woman left her husband indefinitely. Meaningful coincidences like that one happen all the time. But when we learn to recognize and understand them—and perhaps even help manifest them—they can improve our lives dramatically. As a leading expert in Coincidence Studies, Dr.Beitman proposes a greater personal responsibility which depends partly upon newly discovered "grid cells" located in the brain, near the hippocampus. Helen Marlo, Ph.D., Chair of Clinical Psychology Department, and editor of Jung Journal states that, "Dr. Beitman's compelling, uncanny, and illuminating stories of coincidence penetrate mind and heart. This ground-breaking and powerful book challenges us to examine coincidences, and their relevance for meaningful human experience, with greater consciousness, and a heightened appreciation for their transformative potential." Where other books on coincidences tend to be theoretical, inspirational, or story collections only, Dr.Beitman's book is the first to provide a scientific understanding and practical way in which readers can use them in their own lives. About the Author:  Dr. Bernard Beitman is the first psychiatrist since Carl Jung to attempt to systematize the study of coincidences. He is a Visiting Professor at the University of Virginia and former Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He attended Yale Medical School and completed a psychiatric residency at Stanford. Dr. Beitman has received two national awards for his psychotherapy training program and is internationally known for his research into the relationship between chest pain and panic disorder. In addition, he has edited two issues of Psychiatric Annals that focus on coincidences. Dr. Beitman is the founder of Coincidence Studies. His work with coincidences was the subject of a feature story in Men's Health.

Accused denial made one woman Unites his victims

As The Accused Is Busy Denying Responsibility, One Courageous Woman Unites His Victims To Bring About Justice

While on the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton, Madeline Albright recently said: "There's a special place in Hell for women who don't help each other."   We believe most women would add: "And there's a special place in Heaven for the women who do!"

Dallas , TX , June 13, 2016 ─ While Bill Cosby and Philippe Padeiu had vastly different lifestyles, their behavior was very similar. Both could be described as sociopathic narcissists who have never taken responsibility for their actions or admitted any wrongdoing. Cosby used his fame to intimidate women, while Padeiu knowingly infected women with HIV. Both men had long histories of criminal behavior – the only difference is that Padeiu was found guilty and sentenced to 45-years in jail, while Cosby escaped being charged until recently and it was actually a male comedian who brought up Cosby's history of sexual assaults in a comedy routine that went viral (see Wikipedia on Cosby). It's a sad travesty in our society that it takes more than one woman to come forward in order to be believed. Diane Reeve and Andrea Constand are the courageous women who came forward and accused these sexual predators and, as Cosby and Padeiu were busy denying responsibility, these women were selflessly fighting for justice for themselves and other victims. Padeiu was Diane Reeve's fiancé when he knowingly infected her (and many other women) with HIV.  She tells the powerful story in her memoir, Standing Strong: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Sisterhood and the Court Case that Made History (HCI Books), of how she tracked down his other victims and this diverse group of women banded together in a landmark legal case against the man who deceived them all. It's Dallas Buyers Club meets Erin Brockovich. Her 7th Degree black belt in martial arts background connects the concentration, the punches to the gut, the restraint, the thrill, the power and the knowledge to any reader that dares to grasp on to this hard-to-put-down book. In her first chapter, Black Corvette, Diane Reeve accelerates into the moment her life takes a sharp turn. A day meant for sweet memories of her daughter's wedding halts at a fork in the road of her life. Immediately, the reader has been captured to travel a hard-to-believe real life journey as Reeve unpacks the sick reality that Philippe Padieu, the love of her life, was deliberately infecting multiple women—women in their 20s through 60s, with little in common except their vulnerability and now... HIV. Diagnosed with AIDs, Diane vowed to stop Philippe from victimizing anyone else despite her plummeting t-cell numbers and declining health. In a race against time, she tracked down as many of his conquests as possible. Against all odds, this unlikely group made legal history, successfully prosecuting Padieu and sending him to prison for assault with a deadly weapon. It was a sisterhood none of them wanted to belong to, but it became their lifeline as they struggled with anger, the specter and stigma of an HIV diagnosis, and failing health.This fascinating case—won only through the help of new DNA science—is Diane's story of victory and her mission to bring awareness and empowerment to others. As she explains, "Courage is doing what's right, even when you're afraid."  Highlights from the book:  •    "He made me feel strong yet protected, desired and cherished."  •    "I was never going to be able to forget this night, June 17, 2006 ; it would be forever linked with my daughter's wedding."   •    "Even though we were all in the same boat, I guess I hoped to be better and prettier than the others."  •    "If there was anything in my life that I'd like to take back, it was the moment I hit "send" on that first e-mail.  •    "I exhaled. Things were going to be different. This was a man I could trust." •    "I was sure he could have just about any woman he wanted, and I was flattered that he chose me." •    "I have to do the best I can every day to show people what it is to be a person living with HIV—a real person who is more than just a diagnosis." Receiving widespread recognition by the media in 2009, this historical case is exposed once more and even further into the psyche of Diane. Brilliantly written, the reader is able to feel the frustration, depression, hope and the many other inconceivable emotions that Reeve encountered as she fought the battle to bring down a pathological perpetrator, build a sisterhood, and manage her very own health all at the same time. The reader becomes a part of her team and sympathizes yet roots for her courage. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Diane Reeve, "the new face of HIV," has a B.S. Degree in nursing and a M.Ed. in adult education.

Is Megalodon Still Alive?

West Palm Beach , FL , June, 2016 — It was the most fearsome creature ever to inhabit the planet; a 70-foot, fifty-ton prehistoric Great White shark. Its jaws were large enough to devour an elephant whole and were filled with 7-inch razor-sharp teeth. And if that doesn't scare you, consider this – Carcharodon Megalodon may still be out there, inhabiting the unexplored deep waters of our oceans. Most scientists would disagree. According to popular theory, a drop in sea temperatures during the last Ice Age altered whale migration patterns, affecting the giant shark's major food source. The experts back this up with a simple statement: We haven't seen or videotaped a Megalodon, therefore these monsters no longer exist. But the author of MEG, a fictional thriller just greenlit for a major motion picture says, "not so fast!" In Steve Alten's best-selling thriller, MEG (Viper Press, 2015), not all Megalodons died off. Faced with colder seas and a new threat which hunted along the surface in packs (Orca), navy submersible pilot-turned paleobiologist Jonas Taylor claims the creatures went deep. Some ended up in the Mariana Trench, the deepest gorge on the planet – a 1,550 mile-long, 40 mile-wide unexplored realm seven miles deep; its seismically-active sea floor warmed by large fields of hydrothermal vents. The vents superheat the water, the minerals engage the process of chemosynthesis, and suddenly you have a thriving food chain... topped by Megalodon. Before you dismiss the author's theory – last week a new exploration into the Mariana Trench confirmed the existence of both hydrothermal vents AND sea life flourishing in these deep waters – exactly as Steve Alten wrote about in detail 20 years ago!  So... could Megalodon be the next sea creature discovered? "You never know," says Steve Alten, whose fifth installment of the MEG series, MEG: Nightstalkers (Tor/Forge) debuts in bookstores this week. "While most marine biologists would say it's unlikely, it's just as unlikely that Megalodon suddenly perished because the oceans grew colder. Like our modern-day Great Whites, Megalodon would have been warm-bodied, their moving muscles generating heat to their extremities in a process known as gigantothermy. And there are plenty of things in the sea to eat besides whales – which there were still a lot of. But the Orca threat was real. They would have stalked Megalodon nurseries and – attacking in large numbers – would have overwhelmed a solitary adult shark. It's precisely for this reason that Megalodon would have gone deep, out of the hunting range of these air-breathing mammals." Seventy percent of the Earth is covered by water, and yet only 5% of the oceans have been explored; less than 1% of the very deep. Adds Alten: "We discover new sea creatures all the time, including some very large sharks in the deep waters. Keep in mind, Megalodon was not a dinosaur that died off 70 million years ago, it was a shark that lived over most of the last 30 million years and shared the same seas as prehistoric man. As for assuming that these sharks no longer exist just because we haven't seen one – that's not science. If these monsters were living in the vast mid-waters and deep waters, there'd be no reason for them to surface... and anyway, who'd be there to see it?" Soon we'll all be able to see a seven-foot dorsal fin cutting the surface. Warner Brothers greenlit the MEG movie, to be directed by Jon Turtletaub, starring Jason Statham as Jonas Taylor. Book trailers, free excerpts, and movie updates can be found at www.SteveAlten.com.   Steve Alten's brand new version of MEG is in bookstores and on Amazon.com. About the Author: Steve Alten is the NY Times and International best-selling author of fifteen novels, including the MEG series and the DOMAIN series, about the Mayan 2012 doomsday calendar, which was #1 in Spain, Mexico, and Argentina. He is also founder and director of Adopt-an-Author, a secondary school reading program used by thousands of teachers in the U.S.

Sustainable Church

A Biblical And Relational Book That Shows Today's Church How To Restructure And Use The Dynamics Of "Body Discipleship"

Orange, CA, June 07, 2016 – Sustainable Church: Growing Ministry Around the Sheep, Not Just the Shepherds, the new book by author Walt Russell (published by Quoir), reached  top 100 status with Amazon.com in three categories upon its release on June 1, 2016.
Sustainable Church is a thorough, Bible-based exposition of how the ministry of every church should be organically built around all of the Spirit-gifted followers of Jesus within that local body. It critiques the shallow pragmatism and unsustainability of non-organic churches and biblically showcases the sustainability of the organic church. "Body Discipleship" is a key part of the church's sustainability and the author explains biblically how it corrects the model of discipleship that has been popular for the last 2-3 generations. Additionally, Sustainable Church showcases the servant-model of biblical leaders who are supposed to equip the saints to do the work of leaders, who are supposed to equip the saints to do the work of ministry on behalf of Jesus, the true Pastor/Shepherd of every local church!. The book touches on critical aspects to help a church become "sustainable," such as: › how we are thwarting the growth of most of the Church's organic parts: the saints › how to be a local church without one single "lay person" › how to equip the saints to discover, develop, and use their spiritual gifts in ministry. › how "Body Discipleship" is the biblical model of discipleship and the most dynamic and life-changing discipleship model the world has ever seen  › how the biblical model of local church leadership can, and should, be cultivating the Sustainable Church . About the Author: Walt Russell lives in Southern California with his wife and two married children. His passion for the last 36 years has been teaching God's people and helping them to find their gifting and ministry role within the Body of Christ. He has planted two churches on the East Coast and taught the Bible in seminary for the last 28 years. Available at fine bookstores and all online outlets. Sustainable Church.

The Final Service: New Faith-Based Book To Be Made Into A Movie

El Dorado Hills, CA, June 7, 2016 — The Final Service, the new book by author Gary W. Moore (publisher: Savas Beatie LLC—Released May 2016), is being made into a major motion picture and is scheduled to go into production later this year. A daughter's love for her veteran father deteriorated into anger and bitterness as she grew older and he became less attentive, drank too much, and failed in several ventures. When he dies of cancer after her fortieth birthday, she sheds no tears. She resents that she alone is given the overwhelming task of emptying a large storage barn filled with years of material accumulations — a monumental legacy he left for his daughter. Her emotions, self-doubt, and disappointment spiral downward into depression and alcohol and, in a crisis of faith, she contemplates taking her own life. A mysterious young man shows up repeatedly at the barn and offers to help her.  All he does is talk, but his views on the purpose of life and his surprising insights about her father and their relationship slowly begin to change her attitude. When she discovers revealing things her father left behind, and learns that his behavior was the result of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), her love for him is restored and she is transformed. But who was the mysterious young man? "The Final Service is a book about family relationships and how God can use all circumstances for His good purposes. It shows us how God has a plan for us but it is only revealed in His timing. Many readers have talked about how this book has helped them in understanding and resolving damaged family relationships." — Gary W. Moore This book is a story of understanding, forgiveness, family and faith.

Montreal is The Best City In The World ?

It's known as La Main - "The Main" - and it's the lifeblood of Montreal . For the past three centuries this sweeping avenue, Boulevard St Laurent, has shaped the character of a city in the heart of French-speaking Canada . La Main was once the symbolic dividing line between the city's French and English speaking communities, with the boulevard a soft buffer attracting and absorbing waves of new immigrants. Today, it celebrates a cosmopolitan city with its array of little villages, from the Quartier Chinois, or Chinese quarter, to Little Italy and Portugal , along with strong remnants of an historic Jewish quarter.

Oh Canada How I Love You

The tour was to only last one hour. While the other educator and I waited for their arrival we decided we would not visit the Canadian galleries, since they were in another pavilion at the other end of the museum. We would choose the European Art collection to save time. They arrived twenty minutes late. My group had three mothers with eight children between the ages of two months and nine years old. Two Muslim mothers dressed in hijab and long over-... Quickly it was decided, even though time was limited, that we had to go visit the Canadian galleries. We showed the paintings, sculptures and objects from the Inuit, First Nations along with the first settlers from France and England . The children were mesmerized, listening to the legends and stories of the Canadian people. The mothers asked many insightful questions. As we toured from one gallery to the next, the mother from Benin began unapologetically to nurse her son. She didn’t ask for help or lag behind. She did what came naturally and continued to be an active participant. And the two other mothers? They held the infant’s head as she went to adjust her top and looked after her other child. Mothers from different parts of the world, nurturing, protecting and caring for one another. I witnessed the actions of a community. Being an Art Educator at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts affords me the opportunity to meet and interact with many people from all walks of life. I am very fortunate to live in a country where all people have equal rights and are valued for their uniqueness.

Answer: Actually, Robert Bourassa, Quebec Premier then started the controversial language law (Bill 22) which was duplicated and made it more complicated by government of Levesque. Note that Bill 101 was declared not valid by the Supreme Court of Canada but because of the veto option given to all provinces under the unfinished Canada constitution headed by Brian Mulroney, precipitated when Pierre Trudeau, prime minister of the day brought home the BNA (British North America Act - Canadian Constitution) to Canada, Quebec was able to maintain the law (Bill 101) ...

A floral masterpiece by Vincent van Gogh, painted in the closing stages of his life, has sold in New York for $61.8m (£38.7m). Still Life, Vase with Daisies, and Poppies exceeded its estimate of up to $50m (£31.3m) at the Sotheby's auction. A 1951 piece by Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti fetched more than $100m (£62.7m), but fell just short of the record $104.3m (£65.3m) for the artist. A sculpture by Amedeo Modigliani set a new benchmark for his work. Tete, an elongated head created in 1911-12 from a block of limestone scavenged from a Paris building site, was sold for more than $70m (£44.2m). Van Gogh's painting was created at the French home of his doctor just months before his death in 1890 and was one of the few works he sold during his lifetime. But it fell far short of the auction record for a piece by the Dutch artist, which stands at $82.5m (£51.6m). Sotheby's said the painting was bought by a private bidder from Asia .

Monet and Picasso among art theft

Paintings by artists including Picasso, Matisse, Monet, Gauguin and Freud have been stolen from a museum in Rotterdam . Police in the Netherlands said the works were taken from the Kunsthal Museum early on Tuesday morning. The museum is showing works from the Triton Foundation as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations. The paintings include Monet's Waterloo Bridge , Picasso's Tete d'Arlequin, Matisse's La Liseuse en Blanc et Jaune and Freud's Woman with Eyes Closed.  Monet water lilies sells for $43 million    Monet artwork bequeathed by reclusive heiress  "Madame Leon Clapisson": The visualization (right) is produced using advanced image processing software - Conservation scientists in Chicago produce a stunning visualization of how they think a Renoir painting might have looked before its colors faded. Researchers in Chicago have produced a visualization of how they think a Renoir could have looked before its colors faded. The picture of Madame Valentine Clapisson was painted by the great French Impressionist more than 130 years ago. The original's impact has been degraded and dulled by the action of light. But by using the latest analytical tools, conservators have been able to recover a sense of Renoir's rich reds."When we first brought this picture into the conservation studio for examination and removed the frame, we noticed that at the top and at the left-hand side there was a sliver of very intense colour," recalls Dr Francesca Casadio from The Art Institute of Chicago. "This tipped us off to the fact that the mood of this painting that is now pretty cool and restrained with light purples and blues was once far more vibrant," she told BBC News.

Important note if you have a Bank Card: If you are forced by anyone to withdraw cash from ATM machine, do not resist for your safety, enter your PIN number backward or reverse... say your number is 1234, then enter 4321. Do not worry, the machine will give you the cash but automatically alert the police. Pass this on to anyone you know. This was shown on National TV but never repeated again. Anyway, now you know. Also, if  someone calls to tell you that he is from the bank investigating about a charge in your credit card, hang up and if you want to know why they phoned, call your branch to verify.
