Cheryl Roy-Laber Uses Humor to Promote Anti-Bullying Message

More than 150 million Americans play video games, and 60 percent play video games on a daily basis with the average video gamer spending nearly 29 hours with a game console each month.

San Antonio, TX, USA, November 22, 2018 — More than 150 million Americans play video games, and 60 percent play video games on a daily basis with the average video gamer spending nearly 29 hours with a game console each month. By week, this accounts for three to five hours playing games on a device.

Author and accountant Cheryl Roy-Laber affirms that these games can often be addictive for kids. “It is hard for parents to get their children away from that, and it can be difficult for parents to get their children outdoors.”

Raising four sons and two step-daughters, video game use was something that Roy-Laber had to personally navigate in her own parenting.

Luckily, she comments that now, all of her children have gone on to have successful careers. But the fascination for video games ended up serving an unlikely end for Roy-Laber, who went on to write a fictional novel where one particular video game is mysteriously linked to the disappearance of many youth in the community.

Roy-Laber’s debut novel is entitled “Final Level: Animalized” and it also advances a strong message to combat bullying, the author explains.

“A lot of the story has to do with bullying and what happens when kids come together to help each other,” the author explains. “It takes a team to get out of crisis. We need more of that: people coming together and helping each other out.”

In the game, the characters are transformed into animals, which allowed the author to combine elements of their human and animal characteristics. This was also an opportunity for Roy-Laber to introduce humorous incidents to better convey her message.

Publisher Lisa M. Umina adds, “This is not only an entertaining story for readers of all ages but it also teaches important lessons about the importance of working as a team to confront difficult situations in life.”

ISO Expert Daryl Guberman & US Veterans Warn Businesses of Threat of Having ISO Certificates Overseen by China

The relationship between China and America is far from a good one, with trade wars, news of Chinese hacking attempts available and much more occurring daily. This would make it seem strange to have a Chinese national looking over ISO quality for US businesses. But this is exactly what is happening, against an outcry from US veterans led by Daryl Guberman.

New York, NY, USA, November 12, 2018 — Many experts agree China is probably the biggest threat that the United States faces both now and well into the future. With their President recently named “Leader for Life”, a massive nuclear arsenal, huge army, and ever expanding network of state-sponsored cybercriminals, the country looks more aggressive and hostile nearly every day. While President Trump has worked hard to balance the two country’s relationship to a more agreeable situation for the American economy and worker, some American businesses are completely lost when it comes to China. Having no idea just who it is who is issuing their ISO quality certifications and having access to all of their business’s internal information – the Chinese themselves! The good news is Daryl Guberman, CEO of Guberman PMC, LLC, and a growing group of US Veterans is doing their best to educate about the issue using Guberman’s growing following on YouTube to help spread the word. Recently, Guberman released a new video on the subject that should serve to open the eyes of many US businesses who are either being deceived about where their ISO certifications are coming from, or are acting with a complete lack of ethics. The video is titled, “US Veterans Warning Businesses About ISO Certificates Overseen By China”, and runs under five minutes so it doesn’t take a great time investment to view, but completely makes his and US veterans’ points clear on this important and timely subject.

“It’s not hard to understand why our veterans would feel so strongly after serving in the interest of freedom and love for their country, only to find out businesses slap them in the face like this by working with our national rivals or even enemies,” commented Guberman. “Beyond these wretched ISO-certification organizations being led by a Chinese national, they also have insider their associations ties with some of the other most American and Israel hating countries on the planet. Places like Iran, Pakistan, and the list goes on and on. Everyone BUT Israel, of course, a staunch ally of America and the only democracy in the middle east. To sum it up it’s quite shameful to do be certified by these kind of ISO groups and depending on the industry the business is in, doing so could be an actual serious security risk.”

Just to show this is no paranoid fantasy, recently American Defense Contractor Lockhead Martin had to receive “a final regulatory approval from China” before they were allowed to close on its $9 billion acquisition of Sikorsky Aircraft from United Technologies, who produce attack helicopters derivative of the famous UH-60 Blackhawk. See: http://dguberman.com/CHINA_APPROVES_SALE_OF_SIKORSKY_2018.pdf. It would seem that China having any kind of a say in a decision that affects American national security when many military analysts warn a US/China war may be inevitable in the next decade is mind boggling. Or that China decides by issuing ISO certificates what is “quality” and “safe” when the things being looked at may be used by American service men or women See China takes F 35 information 2009 http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/04/21/pentagon.hacked/index.html

For those companies who wish to make a change in where they get their ISO certifications, or new businesses who need to fulfill this need Guberman-PMC offers these services covering a vast array of areas. The business is run by a proud, patriotic Jewish-American and goes above and beyond to hire veterans whenever possible.

Matthew S. Miklasz Promotes Authenticity as a Key to Living an Impactful Life

With four children of his own, Miklasz is well aware of the pressure the next generations face to conform to societal expectations, whether iterated on the television or through pervasive social media.

San Antonio, TX, USA, November 7, 2018 — Pastor Matthew S. Miklasz has witnessed the power of authenticity first-hand, drawing from both his theological training and his thirty years of coaching experience, where he has worked with both athletes and other pastors.

With four children of his own, Miklasz is well aware of the pressure the next generations face to conform to societal expectations, whether iterated on the television or through pervasive social media. To deal with these social pressures, Miklasz encourages people to turn to God and find their “normal.”

“Being the ‘normal’ that God created you to be is an incredible step towards realizing your full potential and positively affecting the people who surround you. Great freedom and confidence emerge when we live according to who God created us to be,” Miklasz explains.

“I want people to discover the deep conviction that God created them uniquely and that He loves them very passionately,” says Miklasz. “When we live with these two convictions, it allows us to impact lives in greater ways. The more authentic we are, the more authentic our worship is, the more authentic our relationships are, especially the deep inner relationship with God.”

With the encouragement of his eldest daughter Angela, Miklasz decided to share this message with the world by penning his first book, “A Normal Guy.”

On his book, Miklasz comments, “I hope to share what I really believe, my deepest convictions. Through my Christian walk, I have journalized many impactful moments about insights and teachings from God that informed my writing process,” comments Miklasz.

“This is such an important read today and for future generations,” adds Publisher Lisa M. Umina. “We should each be able to embrace our ‘normal’ selves, and Miklasz is equipping readers with the tools to do this.”

The book launch events will be held at the following dates and locations:
Saturday, December 1st, Holiday Bazaar Thorp High School – Thorp Wisconsin 9:00a.m. – 3:00p.m.
Saturday, December 8th, The Grounds Coffee Shop – Cokato Minnesota 9:00a.m. – 12:00p.m.
Friday, December 14th, Dassel Public Library – Dassel, Minnesota 10a.m. – 12p.m.

FED Publishing Releases New Book, “FORMULA SEVEN and Genesis of The New World Order” by Michael March

FORMULA SEVEN and Genesis of The New World Order, Michael March, heralds Doctor Cyrus Markum as he rolls out the antitoxin that will neutralize the deadly HIV virus! Unfortunately factions within the federal government conspire to eliminate any trace.

Atlanta, GA, USA — Michael March’s FORMULA SEVEN and Genesis of The New World Order, follows an enraged scientist as he creates a masterwork of revenge including acceptance into the Illuminati.

On an otherwise serene 1989, June night, FBI agents are hustling to load up two large tractor-trailers. Their cargo is unusual. It consists of heavy filing cabinets, laboratory equipment, and chattering chimpanzees. Their motivation is far from altruistic.

Their target of the operation is Doctor Cyrus Markum, a brilliant microbiologist. With the fortune bequeathed by his former life-partner, he’s funded the research project that has created Formula Seven, the vaccine that will thwart the virus causing AIDS.

The Feds are far from enthused with his initiative. They dispatch their agents to eradicate any trace of the lifesaving antibodies and emasculate its creator. The pompous autocrats have gravely miscalculated. They’ve unleashed a ravenous lion.

Doctor Markum chooses Daniel Dundee, a televangelist, as the pivot point in his blueprint of retribution and convinces the Bavarian Illuminati that the time has arrived for their all-encompassing revolution. The TV broadcast of the “New Age Messiah’s” assassination will be the tipping point for the scheme, causing a chain reaction that will lead to the New World Order’s absolute planetary domination. The Doctor’s enterprise is expansive and ingenious, but the Illuminati’s Trilateral Commission has a strategy of their own.

Born in Brooklyn, Michael studied industrial engineering at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. Preferring the exploding music scene, he left to find his way in the world of Rock n’ Roll. Uncle Sam had a much better idea. He insisted that Michael become all that he could be and enter the military. He served with the Eleventh Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam from July 1967 to July 1968. After his discharge, he circumnavigated America, seeking to uncover the soul of society and discover his own. Eventually wending his way home, he semi-normalized and raised a family. Taking his leave from the corporate world seven years ago, Michael moved to Atlanta and fell in love with the city and the craft of storytelling. His first book, Each One a Hero, a fictionalized autobiography of his time spent in a misunderstood and unpopular war, was published by Hellgate Press in 2016.

Genre – Illuminati, HIV Virus, New Thought Ministry, Government conspiracy, Televangelist, International Intrigue, Vietnam veteran, FBI, New World Order, AIDS epidemic

Drawing from Her Heritage Sherlett Hope-King Spreads Message of Diversity

A study by the Houston Chronicle concludes that almost all communities are diversifying, with more inhabitants from racial and ethnic minorities than ever before.

San Antonio, TX, USA, Oct 26th, 2018 — In the United States, the number of people from different ethnic groups has been increasing in the last decade. A study by the Houston Chronicle concludes that almost all communities are diversifying, with more inhabitants from racial and ethnic minorities than ever before.

Educator and author Sherlett Hope-King knows first-hand the importance of this type of diversity in the classroom setting.

“With my background in early childhood education, literacy and reading have always been a big focus in every lesson plan that I put together. I have worked with children from as young as two years old up to twelve years old. We always have different types of books, especially to help children learn about other countries and spark their curiosity to know more about their world,” Hope-King comments.

However, when perusing an international bookstore in Santa Monica, Hope-King noticed that her home country of Belize was missing from the shelves. To fill this gap, she decided to write “Holidays at Grannie and Dod’s”, a book that was inspired by her own Belizean heritage.

“There is so much to learn about Belize, and I only cover the tip of the iceberg in my book. The intention is to provide teachers, students, and parents with a teaser that will make them want to investigate further and learn more about the country.”

The book includes the sensory experiences, from smelling her grandmother’s cooking, to tasting the local spices and hearing Belize’s reggaeton beats. It is the author’s hope that this will provide a framework around which curricula can be designed.

“I wanted the book to be a prompt for other activities—an experiment with music, for example, or an experiment with cooking,” adds Hope-King.

The book also emphasizes the importance of family values. “It’s all about family,” explains the author. “Having such tight family ties was so important to me growing up, and it is a value I wanted to share with others who may not have this strong foundation.”

Publisher Lisa M. Umina comments, “We all have a unique story about where we come from, and this book will help children not only to learn about a new country but to think about their own origins and family histories.”

For more information about Sherlett Hope-King visit www.halopublishing.com. “Holidays at Grannie and Dod’s” is now available at Halo Publishing International, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Books a Million in Hardcover for $21.95, Paperback for $14.95, and as an e-Book for $5.99.

Peggy Palmer Finds Transformative Power in Positivity

From teaching 7th and 8th grade to her work in the non-profit world, Peggy Palmer has not only implemented her teaching about positivity in a professional context but also in a personal one with her own children.

San Antonio, TX, USA, Oct 18th, 2018 — “People function better in life when they’re able to look for the positive,” comments educator Peggy Palmer. “My vision is to propel people to a better place. My work is my passion.” From teaching 7th and 8th grade to her work in the non-profit world, Palmer has not only implemented her teaching about positivity in a professional context but also in a personal one with her own children.

“I taught my kids to be curious and to explore. Children need the tools to know that they are in charge of their own destiny and that they are the ones who design their lives each day. It is so important for children to know that no matter what their circumstances are, they can have a better life.”

To promote this empowering message, Palmer has written a new book for children, entitled “Gather the Good” to teach children simple ways that they can incorporate a positive outlook in their daily lives.

“I hope that readers get a glimmer of light and positivity that they can carry with them into their lives and into the world,” says Palmer. “I hope children will learn that they have the choice to be optimistic every single day. I want to help make a better future, one book at a time.”

Publisher Lisa M. Umina comments, “This is a book that adults need to read just as much as children do. Palmer has made an excellent resource for parents and teachers alike to start teaching their children how to model positive behavior.”

The book launch and book signings will be held soon. For the exact date and place, please follow “Gather the Good” Facebook page.

Pam Saxelby Creates Resources to Make Difficult Conversations Fun for Children

Talking to children about childbirth is not always easy, but author Pam Saxelby knows that the conversation is important because kids are curious.

San Antonio, TX, USA, October 9, 2018 — Talking to children about childbirth is not always easy, but author Pam Saxelby knows that the conversation is important because kids are curious. She also insists it can be a fun! As an educator and author, Saxelby has over 25 years of experience teaching in Chicago where she has worked with students of different ages—from junior high to high school as well as preschoolers.

“I love working with the pre-school kids because they are so funny. After many years of working with children, I have good insight into the questions these children have,” Saxelby comments. “Kids at this age are trying to figure everything out.” Children are curious about where they come from, and this isn’t a bad thing, Saxelby insists.

Saxelby has faced this question both in the classroom and at home, where years ago, she was summoned by her youngest daughter (4 at the time) to “a meeting in the living room” to discuss Saxelby’s then pregnancy with her third child.

“I saw that having children talk about where babies come from is important. We need accurate narratives that are not just centered on the stork. Children need correct information, and this topic can be presented in a way that is both fun and funny. Childbirth does not have to be scary for kids.”

The author adds, “I’ve always tried to write about what is interesting for children, and what they may be trying to figure out,” which is what led her to write her third children’s book, The Great Grace Escape.

Inspired by Saxelby’s granddaughter Grace, The Great Grace Escape is a humorous tale, told from a baby’s perspective about “escaping” from her underwater home in her mother’s womb! The author intends for this book to be a resource for parents, teachers, and pediatricians.

“I hope this story will lead to natural conversations, recognizing that children of different ages need different answers to their questions,” adds Saxelby. “I would like this book to be an opportunity for kids to ask questions about the day they were born and all the joy that goes along with that.” The Great Grace Escape is illustrated by Saxelby’s daughter, Anne Saxelby.

Publisher Lisa M. Umina adds, “This book is a great addition to children’s literature. It presents a unique perspective, helping children to understand where they come from and how they got here. Both children and adults alike will enjoy reading this story.”

For more information about Pam Saxelby visit pamsaxelby.com. The Great Grace Escape is now available at on Pam’s website, Halo Publishing International, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Books a Million in Hardcover for $19.95, Paperback for $12.95, and as an e-Book for $6.99.

Renee Lovekids Promotes Diversity and Debate as the Keys to a Successful Classroom and Community

Having worked as a teacher in the public-school system for the past nineteen years, Renee Lovekids knows the importance of promoting dialogue and debate in her classroom.

San Antonio, TX, USA, September 19, 2018 — Having worked as a teacher in the public-school system for the past nineteen years, Renee Lovekids knows the importance of promoting dialogue and debate in her classroom.

Statistics show that in urban schools, an average of 90% of children who are involved in debate graduate from high school, while only 50% of the general population go on to graduate.

Lovekids has implemented several types of debate formats in her teaching, a measure that she feels helps students from different backgrounds learn how to effectively express their opinions and communicate with their peers.

“I work in New York City, which is one of the most diverse places in America,” the educator comments. “There are times where I’ve had eleven nationalities represented in my classroom. Yet, even with all of the diversity, there are still commonalities that we all share.”

By learning important communication skills from a young age, students are better equipped for life beyond the classroom.

“Different forms of debate are used according to the age group. There is the opportunity to learn new vocabulary and new reasoning skills,” Lovekids adds.

This message is central to Lovekids’ new children’s book, “Why Did My Teacher Cry Today? A Homework Tale”. This story uses humor to relay the different perspectives that students and teachers have on homework. To express their different viewpoints, the students are asked to hold a debate.

“I was inspired to write the book based on the experiences I have had with my students over the years. I hope that readers take away the sense of humor and fun that can be instilled in everyday activities, such as homework. I hope that teachers will take away some ideas about making the topics they are teaching more interesting and engaging for students.”

  • For more information about Renee Lovekids visit www.halopublishing.com. “Why Did My Teacher Cry Today? A Homework Tale” is now available at Halo Publishing International, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Books a Million in Paperback for $11.95 and as an e-Book for $3.99.
