CMM animation probes secondary traumatization in children

Beneath this, and articulated from a child’s point of view, is the much larger issue of confused, reactionary and outdated thinking around gender.”

— Firdaus Kharas

OTTAWA, CANADA, October 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —
A new animated video by Chocolate Moose Media adds to the growing worldwide trend of anti-sexual-assault conversations by taking an original and unique look at the “ripple effect” of the problem.

In Whispers With Stones, creator Firdaus Kharas enters the mind of a young girl as she replays an argument between her parents. The father has been accused of sexual impropriety by a co-worker at his church, and his wife confronts him.

The child tries to make sense of the incident, and the results are devastating as she tries and fails to process the emotions. This is the ripple effect of traumatization that researchers are only now starting to examine.

“Beneath this, and articulated from a child’s point of view, is the much larger issue of confused, reactionary and outdated thinking around gender. In addition, the approach highlights how badly we humans communicate about the issue,” Kharas says.

The video is versioned in nine languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, Korean, Swahili and Tagalog (the Philippines).

It is supported by a riveting soundtrack composed by Andrew Huggett, Kharas’ long-time musical collaborator, and performed on the cello by Huggett’s sister Jennifer.

Whispers With Stones debuted at The United Methodist Church’s Do No Harm summit on the prevention  of sexual misconduct.  Chocolate Moose Media worked with The General Commission on the Status and Role of Women of The United Methodist Church as the executive producers of the animation in its mission to reach victims around the world.

Leslie Bonci of Active Eating Advice to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nobody can rely on exercise alone for weight loss. Your focus, first and foremost, should be on your nutrition.

Leslie Bonci is the founder of Active Eating Advice. A registered dietitian for 36 years, Bonci combines the science and psychology of nutrition to help individuals develop a harmonious relationship with food.

“Nutrition is the perfect marriage of not only what we eat, but when we eat, how much we eat, and why we eat,” says Bonci. “Active eating is about eating to fuel an active lifestyle and making our food work better for us.”

Not everybody is first and foremost focused on their health, but everybody wants to feel good. Nobody ever has said, "I want to be fatigued, weak, and slow." That’s why Bonci’s tagline is "Be fit, fed, and fearless:” that is what food should help us accomplish.

“When people project goals on their eating, their thoughts go right to what they're not going to do, what they can’t eat,” says Bonci. “It's a recipe for failure. You're too focused on a negative, which means you're not going to sustain that for any extended period of time. Anybody can lose weight, but most people find it again. Let’s take that fad and turn it into something sustainable.”

Instead painting yourself into a corner with your choices, Bonci’s approach offers a broader repertoire that does not ignore the importance of flavor.

“Every time people go on these diets, it's a plain piece of chicken and fat-free dressing,” says Bonci. “Our palates have to be part of the dialogue. Why can't we embrace flavor in food at the right portion?”

Bonci says Active Eating is about consistency.

“Cheat days are not consistent! It's a lot of mind games. If you're on a restricted eating pattern and you're getting on that scale and it's showing you nothing you want to see, that's it, you're done. That is psychological debilitation. Right there you're heaving the scale out the window in frustration,” says Bonci. “Let's approach this problem in a more positive way so we're teaching you to be their own cheerleader and not beat themselves up if they didn't always see that number on the scale.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Leslie Bonci in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on October 17th at 1pm EDT.

Dr. Constantine Zois to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

UNION, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Constantine Zois has accomplished a lot in his field (Meteorology) and his life. He retired at nearly 80 years old from a career at Kean College that spanned 50 years and included time as an educator (Professor), researcher, Department founder/Chair, and the author of several workbooks, critical papers, a Doctoral Thesis on the Newark Heat Island, and lab manuals. He credits a lot of it to his mother.

Dr. Zois’ mom was no scientist, but she was literary, and penned hundreds of poems. She was also an intellectual, who helped stir her son’s inquisitive side, and the owner of a cottage by the water in New Jersey. This is where Dr. Zois first discovered his love of the surrounding climate—the ebb and flow of the ocean, the fluctuations in the temperature, and the moods of the sky, as reflected by the clouds.

One of Dr. Zois’ several books is considered a coffee table book, and it’s also the one he dedicated to his daughter, who passed on way too young due to a heart condition. Cloud Anthology (2011) is a collection of stunning photos of the clouds that Constantine Zois took (photography, hiking and fishing are among his hobbies.) Cloud Anthology could also be considered educational, as the book explains the different types of cloud formations and has been admired by students and teachers as well as the general public.

Dr. Zois’ chosen field of Meteorology (the science of the earth’s atmosphere and climate) sprung from his love of Math. He says we don’t realize how intricately math and complex calculations are involved in Meteorology. From his fourth-grade teacher who dwelled on climate and weather, to Mr. Strasberg, a Math teacher at Central High in Newark, many educators helped pique his interest and shape Dr. Zois’ future career. Students, too, are part of learning, the retired professor says, as they make us ponder and do research to resolve their inquiries.

Studying Meteorology tells us about the climate, today, tomorrow and in the past, and might be a clue to the climate change issue. Dr. Zois says that climate change is real, and that it is warmer now than 100 or 1,000 years ago. And even a million years ago, when our planet was entirely frozen over and known as Snowball Earth. The temperature will surely continue to shift, Dr. Zois says, but anyone who says they know exactly what will be happening 100 years from now is just whistling in a cave.

That expression is typical of the humor that keeps Dr. Zois going. He says being positive, knowing how to laugh, and being smart about risk (e.g. don’t take up skydiving) are some keys to longevity. He is going to share more wisdom and laughs on his radio show. Please join in, as we celebrate Dr. Zois as a scientist, educator, author, hobbyist and all-around great guy.

CUTV News will feature Dr. Constantine Zois, Meteorology Professor and Author, in an interview with Jim Masters on Monday, October 15th at 3:00pm EDT

Dr. Victor Vogel of the Geisinger Cancer Institute to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LEWISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Breast cancer causes a complete disruption of a person’s life. It can bring significant financial hardship, family difficulties, work-related problems. Whether a patient needs surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or hormonal therapy, treating breast cancer, or any cancer for that matter, requires a holistic approach that seeks to address the emotional, psychological and spiritual needs of the patient, in addition to their treatment.

Dr. Victor Vogel is the Director of Breast Medical Oncology and Research at the Geisinger Cancer Institute. For 32 years, Dr. Vogel has stood at the forefront of academic medical oncology, dedicating his career to breast cancer clinical research.

While still a medical oncology fellow, Dr. Vogel pursued his master's degree in epidemiology, the study of the causes and risk factors of disease.

“Early in my career, I got very interested in the question of why women get breast cancer,” says Dr. Vogel.

In the 1980s, mammographic breast screening had not yet been widely implemented, but there was great interest in cancer prevention. Armed with research tools and training, Dr. Vogel joined MD Anderson in Houston, a part of the University of Texas and a huge international cancer center, where he spent ten years focused on understanding what factors in a woman's medical and social history lead to an increased risk of developing breast cancer. While at MD Anderson, Dr. Vogel established a clinic designed to recruit women who had increased risk of breast cancer.

“For 15 years, I was enrolling women in research studies to answer that question: can we reduce the risk of breast cancer in women by using a simple pill to reduce their risk?” says Dr. Vogel. “And the answer is yes, we were able to do that. In our first study we had 13,000 women and we proved that tamoxifen reduced the risk of developing breast cancer by 50 percent. We did a second study with 19,000 women, and raloxifene reduced risk and was even safer. By 2006, we had both drugs approved by the FDA for reducing breast cancer risk in high-risk women.”

Not only did these interventions reduce the risk of recurrence in early breast cancer, but tamoxifen reduced the risk of a second breast cancer in the opposite breast. That’s prevention.

After a 25-year career in clinical research, Dr. Vogel spent 16 months as the national vice president for research for the American Cancer Society, raising money for the Cancer Society and introducing people to a whole new era of cancer prevention. In 2010, Dr. Vogel joined the Geisinger Health System, a large multi-specialty group with hundreds of physicians in central Pennsylvania, as their cancer center director. Today, Dr. Vogel is the head of Geisinger’s breast cancer program where he sees patients five days a week.

“It's led me to a more complete understanding of breast cancer as a disease,” says Dr. Vogel. “In the 32 years since I finished my fellowship, breast cancer treatment has gotten very complex, but in that complexity we're now offering care that covers the holistic spectrum, all the things patients and their families need for the care of their disease. We like to think we do it pretty well.”

Dr. Vogel is board-certified in medical oncology but also in general preventive medicine and public health, making him unique among his peers.

“I thoroughly believe that breast cancer, like small pox and polio, will ultimately be prevented through a more complete understanding of its etiology and the contributing risk factors.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Victor Vogel in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on October 17th at 10am EDT.

Dr. Srikumar Rao of the Rao Institute to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

COMMACK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The human predicament: we want to be happy, to be free of suffering, but invariably we find there is still something a little bit off with our life. We live our entire lives desperately striving but never reaching. We're unhappy with our career choice, in our relationships, with our finances. We are always finding that we’re not where we’d like to be, and it detracts from our ability to be truly happy, peaceful, and content.

Dr. Srikumar Rao is an executive coach, motivational speaker and founder of the Rao Institute. Dr. Rao has helped thousands of executives, professionals, and entrepreneurs all over the world achieve quantum leaps in effectiveness, resiliency and overall happiness through his Creativity and Personal Mastery program.

"This course will profoundly change your life, and if it doesn't, we've both failed,” says Dr. Rao.

Today, Dr. Rao’s Creativity and Personal Mastery remains the only business school course in the world to have its own alumni association. The course shows students how to discover their unique purpose, creativity and happiness, through individual and group work and a different philosophical orientation.

“We believe we live in the real world, but we don't,” explains Dr. Rao. “We live in a real world, not the real world. The world we live in is a world that we have constructed through our mental models, and this is actually a hugely liberating thought. If you're living in the real world and you don't like it, you have to grin and bear it, but if you're living in a real world you’ve constructed, and you don't like it, there's hope. You can deconstruct the parts of it you don't like and build it up again. My program teaches you how to do this.”

Dr. Rao was inspired to develop the course through personal experience.

“There was a time in my life when I wasn’t really enjoying what I did and I felt stuck,” says Dr. Rao. “I got the idea to collect the teachings of the world's great masters, strip them of their religious and cultural connotations, and adapt them so they're acceptable to intelligent people in a post-industrial society. The thought of doing something like that made me come alive. I created the course and the rest is history.”

According to Dr. Rao, the great masters of the world completely understood the human predicament and developed solutions that have been tested over millennia and they absolutely work. However, they spoke in the language and used examples that were relevant to the time and geography that they were in. The concepts are valid, but not the examples or the way in which they were put down. Dr. Rao has sought to address this problem.

“This has everything to do with our relationship to ourselves,” says Dr. Rao. “Any time you get into the habit of comparing yourself with someone else, that is a sure path to misery. You're unique, you're you, there's never going to be another person like you. This is not something to be proud of. Or ashamed of. It is simply something to accept and when you do, you experience a feeling of lightness.”

“We spend enormous time and emotional energy in putting up a mask because we want to be perceived in a particular way. And we frequently have no clue that our effort is failing. This is draining. We only recognize how enervating it is when we put down our mask,” explains Dr. Rao.

His programs show you how weighty your mask is and how you can put it down.

Dr. Rao is the author of Are You Ready to Succeed: Unconventional Strategies for Achieving Personal Mastery in Business and Life (2006).

“I really believe that I am the trustee for this information that was articulated by these giants,” says Dr. Rao. “My job is to make the transmission of this information as clear and powerful as I can and get my self out of the way. I am proud of being a good instrument.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Srikumar Rao in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on October 17th and November 14th at 11am ET and with Jim Masters on October 24th and November 7th at 11am ET.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

19-year-old Harvard Club speaker talks about the $72 billion search engine optimization industry

Alexander Velitchko receives the SEO Genius Award from Clint Arthur

Alexander Velitchko receives the SEO Genius Award from Clint Arthur

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, October 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — 19-year-old Alexander Velitchko may’ve grown up a small-town kid in the boondocks, and he’s first to admit he was never raised street-smart.

And yet, despite the circumstances of life, Alexander is now boldly pursuing entrepreneurship.

While still in high school, Alexander helped his dad run a store on Amazon.com, as part of his co-operative education program—describing himself as “probably one of the luckiest guys in [his] school, because [he] got to go home after only 2 classes.”

Eventually, this led Alexander and his dad into an industry that’s an estimated $72 billion according to Borrell Associates, projected to rise to almost $80 billion by 2020: search engine optimization, or SEO for short.

Alexander, a graduate of Huron Heights Secondary School in Newmarket, Ont., has had the privilege of sharing his message on the same stage as Caitlyn Jenner and George H. Ross at the Harvard Club of Boston.

In his Harvard speech, Alexander describes how he and his dad made the most of a family loss by serving companies local & national, small & large, and helping them gain recognition—co-founding Triple Agent Digital Media Inc., whose business services encompass SEO, online reputation management, and social media brand-building.

The speech was extremely well-received by the 100+ thought leaders, changemakers, CEOs and expert entrepreneurs from all over the world who spoke at the summit, earning him the “SEO Genius Award,” and Alexander says it represents a personal high for him.

“I cannot express enough gratitude for the mentorship I’ve received, the connections I’ve made, and the celebrities I’ve met.”

When asked, the 19-year-old entrepreneur is keen to expand upon his passion for digital marketing.

“I’ve been a computer user since I was 2,” Alexander explains, “and a YouTuber since 11. I’ve experienced enough of the ins and outs of the Internet to say that business owners really need to be seen on Google when they want to make a difference in this world. Pretty much everybody uses Web searches to make their purchase decisions. You’ve got to be seen by those searchers, and Google is the place to be for that, since they dominate 75% of the search market.”

Not only that—Google is trusted so much that less than 10% of searchers ever browse beyond the first page.

“I help businesses get discovered and trusted by Google, and hence their customers,” says the Triple Agent co-founder. “I leverage every online asset available to build a fortress of trustworthiness around your online branding, and turn your website into a digital asset.”

Some older-generation entrepreneurs are not familiar with this concept, so they’re more partial towards “old-fashioned” marketing media. Here’s what Alexander and his company say when he’s questioned about the effectiveness of SEO:

Q: Why would I need this?
A: OK—you own a business. Doesn’t matter if it’s small, medium or large—you already know that in order to make that money, you need customers coming to your door.
The question now is: HOW? In this digital age, if you think decades of expertise in your industry alone will magically sell anyone who walks by you, you’re dead wrong! I’ve seen a local custom cabinets dealer fail after only 3 years in business because of this exact philosophy. They thought their storefront “didn’t need marketing” to survive.
Since word of mouth is not as effective now as it used to be, digital marketing is the way to go—and 97% of consumers use online search to look for businesses. The SEO industry is growing year-after-year, so you can’t afford to sleep on search engines and alienate the 97%.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Good question. Depends on your desired scalability and your specific industry, so I’d like to know more about that from you. If I were you, I wouldn’t think of it as “what’s the cost?” so much as I would say “what return-on-investment can I expect from your SEO?” Because it doesn’t matter if it’s financially challenging upfront. What matters is how much you profit from this investment. My intention is bringing you more qualified customers and clients from Google, which yields more revenue. So it all just comes down to return-on-investment.

Q: How much time will it take?
A: It depends on how aggressively you want to scale. Generally, SEO is a long-term asset. It’s like growing a 6-pack: you won’t see optimal results in a month. You’ve got to maintain your eating, dieting and exercising habits. Obviously, isn’t it true that any business owner would want a long-lasting marketing asset? That’s what we give you. Patience is key, so let the months go by, let it roll out, and once you’ve hit your goal for growth, we can continue to maintain it for you.

Q: I didn’t know someone could get you up on the search engines like that. Can you tell me how it works?
A: I can’t say everything—I’d be giving all my secrets away! [giggles] But seriously – it’s all about tweaking your website to where the search engine’s algorithms really like it. Google measures your rankings based on what you talk about, the quality of your user experience, the traffic coming to your site, and your trustworthiness, which they score based on that of the people who are talking about you.

Q: This sounds great. How do I get in touch with you?
A: You can easily book a 1-on-1 consultation on www.TripleAgentDigitalMedia.com. You get to discuss your current business situation and how much you want to scale, so I know exactly how to help you.

Alexander T. Velitchko is the co-founder, owner and director of Triple Agent Digital Media Inc., an Internet marketing company that helps businesses gain exposure, scale their audience & build their brand via organic SEO and online reputation management. A computer user since the age of 2, he is a co-author of the Amazon bestseller “50 Easy Business Hacks to Increase Your Sales Today,” and an award-winning speaker with engagements at Harvard Club of Boston, Coca-Cola and Mercedes-Benz USA.

If you have been unfortunate enough to have been involved in an auto accident, leading to subsequent injuries and losses, filing a claim is the first thing you should do. However, when it comes to filing a personal injury claim and negotiating with your car insurance provider yourself, you should know it is not going to be easy.

This is because, the insurance companies, especially the third-party insurers will try every trick in the book to minimize the claim amount and pay as less an amount as possible. The obvious reason being the prospect of profitability for the insurance company.

“People need to be made aware of the potential problems they can run into when working with insurance companies in terms of receiving money,” said Kenneth Saffren, Esq. “Working with a lawyer could help alert people and make working with insurance a smoother process.”

Seeking the services of an auto accident lawyer, such as Kenneth Saffren of Saffren and Weinberg, helps a lot in this regard, but first, you should learn about the top 10 insurance company tricks as listed here.

Lack of Response – While you expect the insurance adjuster to reach out to you for help as soon as you report the damage, often times it is just the opposite. Insurance companies hardly respond even after frequent calls and emails. This attitude is both deliberate as well as the result of having to deal with hundreds of claimants each day.

Unnecessary Delay – Even when the insurance company responds and takes up your case, the one thing that they stick to is unnecessary delay. Delaying would imply earning interests from the money apart from the chances of the claimant being too tired of a lengthy process and settling for a low compensation amount.

False Show of Responsibility – The insurance companies typically put up a false show of responsibility. This is done to make you believe that they will handle your claim well and that you do not need a car accident lawyer for the purpose. However, what happens in due course is that you realize that it’s only a trick to pay out as less a compensation as possible.

Consistent Request for More Information – To keep asking for more information is one common trick that the insurance company employs to stretch the case and delay it as much as possible. The information can be regarding medical expenses or irrelevant details. They will ask you for another just as you furnish them with one. The adjuster will try to make you believe that the information is vital for assuring you justice.

Call for Statement – As fraudulent a practice as it is, insurance adjusters ask for statements from the victims just to confuse the claimant and damage the value of the claim. These statements are prepared in a way that naturally leads to ambiguous answers. It is for this very reason that you will never find a good car accident attorney asking for statements from his/her client.

Request for Medical Records – While the request for medical records is obvious to know more about the injuries, insurance companies often go to the extent of demanding unrelated medical records. This again is a trick to delay the process with the excuse of lack of medical records. Records from 5 years before the present car accident are certainly not of any value or relevance whatsoever.

Disputing Medical Expense Amount – Insurance adjusters try their best to disallow or disregard the medical expenses you incurred. This is often done after a communication with your appointed Doctor. They find issues with your medical treatment to ultimately arrive at a way of lowering the medical expense amount in some way or the other.

Insisting on Co-Payments – Insurance companies often make wrong use of a car accident victim’s unawareness of legal procedures. As such, they will try to make you settle with the co-payments or out-of-pocket expenses instead of paying for all the medical bills, as it should be.

Unacceptable Offers – It is only when the insurance provider offers the victim with a very low amount that he/she realizes the need of a lawyer. But by the time this realization occurs, the insurance adjuster has obtained all information and statement to be used against the claimant in the court.

Monitoring or Spying – Last but not the least, when there is a considerable insurance coverage, insurers go to the extent of spying on you. They do so with the aim of recording footages that speak against your injury or claim.

Don’t let these scams and fraud practitioners disregard your personal injury and losses resulting from a car crash. Get in touch with one of our car accident lawyers at 215-576-0100 and get a free consultation today.
