Maddie Brown of Smashing Numbers to be Featured on Close Up Radio

ONAWA, IOWA, UNITED STATES, October 21, 2020 / — There are 12 million women-owned businesses in the United States. Of those 12 million, 88 percent are making less than $100,000 a year, at an average of $46,000 in gross income.

Of course, no one starts a business to earn $46,000, but then very few of these entrepreneurs have any formal business education. They haven’t learned to market, to budget, to forecast.

Too many small business owners are like an ostrich sticking their head in the ground. They're scared. They're ashamed. If they are willing to bring their numbers out into the light, they can begin to can make conscious decisions about how to manage the next chapter of their business.

If you're in business, you need someone you can talk to about your numbers and the story that they tell, so you can set goals and plan for the future. Maddie Brown is a CPA and the founder of Smashing Numbers, where she helps entrepreneurs, particularly coaches, to be more successful and profitable.

“Most people don't have anyone that they talk to about their money,” says Maddie. “We provide a safe space for people to look at their numbers, pay attention to their numbers and smash their numbers into something wonderful. My mission is to with the people in that 88 percent making $100,000 or less and provide them with the planning and strategy to become financially free and create what they want their lives to be.”

Though a CPA for 40 years, Maddie Brown is not your traditional accountant.

“There is a conflict between making money and paying taxes and acquiring debt,” says Maddie. “As a result, most people want to show as little income for tax purposes as possible. The problem is if you want to show as little income as possible, you're not going to meet your other financial goals. So when I talk about money, I talk about it from a totally different perspective than most CPAs.

“In order to be able to have financial freedom, you need to make decisions from a standpoint of what you want to do and not what you can afford to do,” says Maddie. “Bookkeeping and taxes are tools that you use to look at your numbers and educate yourself, but the goal is for you to be profitable and make money in your business and pay yourself.”

Maddie says she wants leave a legacy of helping coaches move the needle toward being more successful and doing well in the world.

“I love working with people that want to make the world a better place,” says Maddie. “I believe that if I can help them be profitable and live the life they dreamed of, we can uplift everybody.”

Close Up Radio will feature Maddie Brown in an interview with Jim Masters on October 22nd at 1pm EST

விடுதலைப்புலிகள் மீதான தடைக்கு எதிரான வழக்கின் தீர்ப்பு நாளை புதன்கிழமை

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, October 21, 2020 / — தமிழீழ விடுதலைப் புலிகள் மீதான பிரித்தானியாவின் தடைக்கு எதிராக நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அசராங்கத்தினால் தொடுக்கப்பட்ட வழக்கின் தீர்ப்பு நாளை புதன்கிழமை வெளிவருகின்றது என நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அராசாங்கத்தின் பிரதமர் பணிமனை தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

பிரித்தானிய நேரம் காலை 10:30 வழங்கப்பட இருக்கின்ற இர்தீர்ப்பு தொடர்பில், பிரித்தானியா நேரம் மாலை 4:15 மணிக்கு நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் ஊடக சந்திப்பொன்றினை நடத்த இருக்கின்றது. இதனை மற்றும் ஊடாக நேரடியாக காணமுடியும்.

இந்த வழக்கானது திறந்த சாட்சியங்களின் அடிப்படையிலும், இரகசிய சாட்சியங்களின் அடிப்படையிலும் நடைபெற்றது. திறந்த சாட்சியங்களின் விசாரணையின் போது இங்கிலாந்து மகாராணியாரின் QC மாண்பைப்பெற்ற Maya Lester QC, உட்பட Malcolm Birdling of Brick Court Chambers with Jamie Potter and Caroline Robinson of Bindmans LLP ஆகியோர் நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்க்தின் சட்டவாளர்களாக வாதிட்டிருந்தனர்.

Saliva may hold key to concussion diagnosis and management

Simple saliva test also may predict nature and duration of concussion symptoms

SYRACUSE, NY, UNITED STATES, October 20, 2020 / — A simple saliva swab may hold the key to diagnosing and managing mild traumatic brain injury (i.e., concussions), according to a study recently published in the journal Clinical and Translational Medicine. In a paper titled "Diagnosing mild traumatic brain injury using saliva RNA compared to cognitive and balance testing,” researchers discovered that a noninvasive saliva test demonstrated similar diagnostic accuracy to neurocognitive and balance tests commonly used today, and greater diagnostic utility when combined with standardized symptom assessment. Moreover, the researchers from Penn State College of Medicine, SUNY Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine, SUNY Upstate Medical and Quadrant Biosciences Inc., suggest that the saliva test may have additional clinical utility in predicting the type and duration of symptoms.

More than 3 million concussions occur each year, the majority occurring among children and young adults. Despite the prevalence of the injury, there are few clinically valid methods for its diagnosis or prognosis. As a result, there is great value in an objective biomarker that is not only accurate, but easily collected and measured.

“Currently, the diagnosis of concussion relies largely on subjective symptom reports from patients,” explains Steven Hicks, MD, Ph.D., FAAP, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Penn State Hershey Medical Center and one of the co-authors in this study. “The lack of objective tools for concussion assessment is problematic because symptom reports can be manipulated to expedite, or delay, return to activities. As a result, studies have shown that concussion is often under-diagnosed.”

Quadrant Biosciences has been working the past several years with researchers from Penn State Medical Center and SUNY Upstate Medical University to explore the use of saliva biomarkers to objectively diagnose concussion. This earlier research, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics in 2018, identified a panel of small, non-coding molecules (“ncRNA”) in the saliva that acted as a "molecular signature" to not only diagnose concussion, but predict the duration and character of concussion symptoms. The present study was designed, in part, to test that diagnostic and prognostic utility in a larger cohort of patients.
In this study of 538 individuals across 11 test sites, the researchers compared the ability of saliva RNA to identify mTBI, relative to a commonly used symptom scale, balance test, and neurocognitive assessment. Saliva was collected using the ORAcollect®·RNA (OR-100) device from OraSure Technologies. The saliva test identified participants who had suffered mTBI with similar accuracy to standard clinical tools. The best performing predictive model included symptom reports combined with saliva RNA measures.

These results suggest that saliva RNA represents a non-invasive, biologic measure with the potential to aid concussion diagnosis. Hicks said predicting the length of concussions as early as possible would help ensure patients get the right care, and advise patients and parents on how long to expect symptoms to continue. “With that knowledge,” Hicks explained, “physicians could make more informed decisions about how long to hold a child out of sports, whether starting more aggressive medication regimens might be warranted, or whether involving a concussion specialist might be appropriate. Anytime we can use accurate, objective measures to guide medical care, I think that represents an opportunity to improve concussion treatment.”

While more studies are needed, Hicks said he is hopeful that measuring microRNAs in saliva could one day be an accurate, quick way to diagnose and manage concussions.

“The ultimate goal is to be able to objectively identify that a concussion has happened and then predict how long the symptoms will go on for,” Hicks said. “Then we can use that knowledge to improve the care that we provide for children who have concussions, either by starting medicine earlier or holding them out of activities for longer.”

Dr. Hicks serves as a paid consultant and scientific advisory board member for Quadrant Biosciences. These potential conflicts of interest have been fully disclosed and are actively managed by the Penn State Conflict of Interest Committee.

Decision of the Appeal Against LTTE Ban in UK is Tomorrow (Wednesday): TGTE

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) appealed against UK's ban of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, October 20, 2020 / —

The decision of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam’s (TGTE) appeal against the proscription of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) will be handed down tomorrow (Wednesday) October 21, 2020 at 10:30 am (UK Time).

In December 2018, the TGTE wrote to the then Home Secretary Sajid Javid MP asking him to deproscribe the LTTE on the basis that it was not concerned in terrorism and that it’s continuing proscription was impeding the freedom of speech and assembly of Tamil people (including the TGTE) who advocates for the realization of the Tamil self determination in the form of an independent state. In March 2019, the Home Secretary refused the application.

The TGTE filed an appeal against the decision of the Secretary of State’s For The Home Department to the Proscribed Organizations Appeal Commission on December 13, 2018. It was made by UK based members of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam. The Secretary of State For The Home Department submitted open evidence and secret evidence. The Commission heard arguments based on open evidence on July 30th, 2020. The Commission heard arguments based on secret evidence on July 31st, 2020.

In the open proceedings the TGTE was represented by Maya Lester QC and Malcolm Birdling of Brick Court Chambers and Jamie Potter and Caroline Robinson of Bindmans LLP. During the secret proceedings, TGTE’s interests were represented by “Special Advocates” Angus McCulloch Q.C and Rachel Tony. The UK Government was represented by Sir James Eadie QC, Ben Watson and Emily Wilsdon. The appeal was heard by Mrs. Justice Laing and two lay panel members, Richard Whittam Q.C and Philip Nelson Q.C.


The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a democratically elected Government of over a million strong Tamils (from the island of Sri Lanka) living in several countries around the world.

TGTE was formed after the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Government in 2009.

TGTE thrice held internationally supervised elections among Tamils around the world to elect 132 Members of Parliament. It has two chambers of Parliament: The House of Representatives and the Senate and also a Cabinet.

TGTE is leading a campaign to realize the political aspirations of Tamils through peaceful, democratic, and diplomatic means and its Constitution mandates that it should realize its political objectives only through peaceful means. It’s based on the principles of nationhood, homeland and self-determination.

TGTE seeks that the international community hold the perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the Tamil people to account. TGTE calls for a referendum to decide the political future of Tamils.

The Prime Minister of TGTE is Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, a New York based lawyer.


Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka faced repeated mass killings in 1958, 1977, and 1983 and the mass killings in 2009 prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a Panel of Experts to report on the scale of the killings.

According to UN internal review report on Sri Lanka, over 70 thousand Tamils were killed in six months in early 2009 and Tamil women were sexually assaulted and raped by the Sri Lankan Security forces. A report by the International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) published details of Sri Lankan Military run "Rape Camps", where Tamil women are being held as sex slaves. There are over 90,000 Tamil war widows and thousands of Tamils disappeared due the conflict.

According to this UN report, the killings and other abuses that took place amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. Independent experts believe that there are elements of these abuses that constitute an act of genocide.

Members of the Sri Lankan security forces are almost exclusively from the Sinhalese community and the victims are all from the Tamil community. A Buddhist Monk shot and killed a Sri Lankan Prime Minister 1959 for having talks with Tamils.

Tamils overwhelmingly voted in a Parliamentary election in 1977 to establish an independent and sovereign country called Tamil Eelam. This Parliamentary election was conducted by the Sri Lankan Government.

7 Major Mom Trends That Will Boost Brand Sales

marketing to moms

Katrina McCarter, Founder & CEO, Marketing to Mums

New generations, new technology and new realities change mothers purchasing behavior

Moms are continually evolving. And brands need to continually reexamine their messaging and marketing strategies.”

— Nan McCann, M2Moms® Founder & Producer

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 20, 2020 / — Drawing on multi-year research of moms purchasing behaviors, Katrina McCarter, Founder & CEO of Marketing to Mums uncovered 7 major trends impacting moms buying habits. In her latest article on M2Moms® – The Constant Conference, McCarter, a widely recognized moms marketing and research expert, writes, “There are seven specific trends that brands can harness to grow their business with today’s moms.” M2Moms® – The Constant Conference is a 24/7 online executive learning resource dedicated to helping marketers build better business with moms and families.

McCarter explained, “Mothers are increasingly rejecting corporate sales messages in favor of third-party endorsements. As the demands and expectations of mothers increase, so does the way they value convenience and time. Also, with moms entering business at an ever-increasing rate, we are seeing a strong trend of mothers wanting to support women in business. Plus, moms love the audio intimacy of podcasts. Notably, mothers want brands to be more inclusive of the changing family structure that exists and remove stereotyping from their advertising. Additionally, the research showed that Moms are embracing minimalism as they opt to live simpler, more meaningful lives. We are also seeing kids and dads having more of a say in purchase decisions, with a more collaborative approach being taken in modern households.”

Nan McCann, Founder & Producer of M2Moms® said,” Katrina’s series on marketing to moms and families illustrates why it is very important for marketers to keep up with today’s moms. They are continually evolving. And brands need to continually reexamine their messaging and marketing strategies. Other new M2Moms® articles include: Snippies video “Countdown to Election USA”; “Black Lives Matter at Home” ; “Covid19 Changes Moms Grocery Shopping Behavior … Probably Forever!”; “Play & Pandemic: How Brands Can Help Families Now”; Advice on avoiding the “7 Mistakes Brands Make When Marketing to Moms”; surprising research results on “Charitable Giving Across A Lifespan”; the latest news, innovations and trends on parents & families; an unmatched compendium of mom-marketing-focused data; presentations; best in business reads on Madd About Books; and to help Members work out those WFH kinks in an ongoing series of “Moves that Stretch” with Stephanie Bittner, founder of Bittner Movement.”

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, October 20, 2020 / — Will McNally has reimagined iconic scenes from gangster epics, comic book classics and Oscar winning favourites – and captured the attention of Hollywood along the way.

His unique takes on scenes from The Dark Knight, The Wolf of Wall Street and more have made the self confessed movie buff a favourite among cinephiles, and interest is only continuing to grow.

In the past six months, his artwork has increased in value by just over 58 per cent, and film studios are taking notice, hiring Will for several private commissions.

Will has said that he’s motivated by the challenge of putting a unique twist on famous movie scenes, creating something that can be enjoyed by film fans and art collectors alike.

He said: “For me, the challenge is creating an epic piece people will remember, that uses famous scenes to make them instantly memorable – while bringing something unique to each piece that takes it to a new level. I’m a huge movie buff, and I just love creating pieces that you can cherish and put on your wall, that will stand out and make people go “wow” when they come to your house.

“Films are my comfort zone, and I love sitting down and capturing what I get from them on the canvas.”

A recent Wolf of Wall Street inspired piece, in which quotes from the film appear on Leo DiCaprio’s pin striped suit, has racked up likes on Instagram. He’s now in the early stage of a new series looking back through famous gangster movies, and creating challenging new ideas that will breathe new life into famous scenes from films such as Pulp Fiction.

His work has put him in high demand in Hollywood, with commissions from both Universal and Warner Bros. For the latter studio, it was one of his most extravagant pieces to date.

“I’ve been commissioned by Warner Bros to do special edition, customised busts of Mortal Kombat characters for their clients. I did one of the character Scorpion, where if you turned off the lights it’d glow in the dark and look like the skull was on fire.”

In 2021, it seems likely that he will be entering the art world A-list. To find out more about why Will McNally is fast becoming Hollywood’s favourite artist, and to arrange to view his collection, visit
