It is astounding the way reading adds to our cognitive ability and development attaining higher levels of awareness and augmenting neural activity as well as improving the overall mental health. The acclaimed novelist, scholar, translator, essayist and editor, Alberto Manguel has even gone as far as to describe his experience of learning to read as “acquiring a new sense, so that now certain things no longer consists merely of what my eyes could see, my ears could hear, my tongue could taste, my nose could smell, my fingers could feel, but of what my whole body could decipher, translate, give voice to, read”.

This promised horizon of possibilities and exposure to diversity and cerebral growth, is exactly what the Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival (SCRF) is all about, opening at Expo Centre Sharjah on 18th April 2018 for 11 days of discovery, creativity and exploration. Held annually under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, the UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, and the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Muhammad Al Qasimi, the cultural festival is aimed at inspiring and promoting a culture of reading, learning and applying that knowledge especially amongst children, helping to raise a generation of scholars and leaders that the society can benefit from at all levels.

A bright, eclectic constellation of authors, illustrators, speakers, thespians and publishing professionals will grace the SCRF, as Sharjah celebrates the 10th edition of the famous festival, alongside over 120 local and international publishers with a collection of their books on display for sale. Based on this year’s theme ‘Your Future… Just a Book Away’, Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) has revealed a packed itinerary of the most amazing and diverse range of workshops and activities for the children’s festival.

Celebrated authors, storytellers and illustrators will join to read their famous works and meet their fans at the festival such as Lebanese author and founder of Hunna Group for Female Emirati Writers and Creators, Sahar Mahfouz; Palestinian author and illustrator Fadwa Al Qasem Fadwa; and Egyptian author and scriptwriter Amr Samir Atef. Traveling down from other continents will be eminent writers, essayists and poets, talking about creativity, humorous literature, articulating information, as well as writing poems and illustrating like Ed Vere from Britain, Mirada Paul from USA, Natasha Sharma from India, Michael M.

Whereas Darya Yegorina from Ireland, the CEO of CleverBooks, will be sharing her knowledge about emerging and innovative technologies for education.

However, the 10th edition of the SCRF includes something huge in ed-tech that will be a part of the event for the first time. Led by Dr. Sana Farid from Bahrain, the pioneer ARVR & Ai Strategist and CEO of VRXOne, sessions will be held on Virtual Reality for education demonstrated by an Expert Google Expeditions trainer. In the spirits of delivering thorough understanding and connecting with the Emirati youth, these sessions will be delivered in Arabic language. This is an amazing opportunity for the youth to get familiar with the use of VR in education and experience Google Expeditions at the platform of VRXone – the biggest Virtual Reality program in the region, already taking a million VR sessions to schools in the Middle East. It is noteworthy here that Dr. Sana Farid has recently been awarded by UAE Ministry of Education earlier this month for her proficient participation in Gulf Teachers Training Forum, where she delivered workshops for Immersive learning platforms for teachers attending the session from all over UAE.

The festival will also host academics including Dr. Reem Al Fawwaz, Assistant Professor and Researcher in Children’s Literature and Literary Criticism at the Arabic Language Department of the King Abdul Aziz University in Jeddah as well as Toqa Abdelrahim, a teacher and civil activist who founded the ‘Whites’ initiative on women’s and children’s issues, and Dr. Najla Bashour, Professor of Educational Science at the University of Saint Joseph, whose participation is noted for founding the Tala Establishment for Educational Aids and Instruments in 1984.

The Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival will be a jewel-speckled, happening event where children will be able to get in touch with their creative side and elevate intellectual tendencies – and to add to their inspiration and excitement– including the chance to win the “Innovation Award” for 9 to 15-year-olds, rewarding the creativity, originality and resourcefulness of those who exhibit the propensity lo lead with pioneering ideas and concepts in the fields of science and knowledge. The festival will further include four different competitions on innovation, news reporting, poetry, and cooking, in order to further shape and develop skilled based knowledge and competencies among the Emirati youth. So if you are anywhere in the Middle East during the month of April, this is where you need to be through these much-awaited 11 days of the SCRF 2018.

Sydney Segen Writes from the Trenches of PTSD to Offer True Stories, Self-Help, and Hope

Hope After Trauma and PTSD

This is a book that everyone needs to read.

Sydney Segen, author

Segen knows PTSD because she has PTSD

In "Hope After Trauma and PTSD," author Sydney Segen presents true stories, insights, and writing prompts to give PTSD sufferers power to hope again.

Ms. Segen's book doesn't give you a chance to put it down; it grabs you and doesn't let go.”

— JDC, RN, St. Louis, MO

ST. LOUIS, MO, USA, April 12, 2018 / — “Hope After Trauma and PTSD” reaches out to those who struggle in the grips of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), with its endless flashbacks, terrifying nightmares, and life-destroying pain. The book also offers insight for those who have friends or family with PTSD.

PTSD begins with trauma—shootings, natural disasters, war, crimes, betrayals, and more. Trauma stops life in its tracks. After experiencing trauma, some people get better and go on with life. But others develop PTSD, a debilitating mental illness. For them, life doesn't just stop; it derails and crashes.

No one can predict who will get PTSD. But when it comes, it shatters relationships, marriages, confidence, and the ability to focus on school or work. PTSD brings on vivid, frightening nightmares. Its flashbacks force the person to re-experience the trauma again and again.

Segen knows PTSD because she has PTSD. She says, “I have fought mightily to take control over PTSD and begin building a new life. Now I’m reaching out to others to let them know they’re not alone.”

In her book, available on Amazon, Segen presents PTSD through:
• First-person stories by people who have PTSD or PTSD symptoms
• Insights following each story to add critical factual information
• Writing exercises to help readers write their own stories, a step toward healing

Best-selling author and expert in the field of PTSD and C-PTSD, Dr. Arielle Schwartz, says, “Sydney Segen offers a clearly written and realistic portrayal of life after trauma. This book provides a valuable resource and a source of hope.”

As a Christian writer and storyteller based in St Louis, Segen wrote “Hope After Trauma and PTSD” from a personal perspective. She wants her readers to know she and the other storytellers in her book “get it,” and that it’s possible to take over control of PTSD through strategies such as therapy, joining a community, learning control techniques, taking medication, and more.
Hard work? Definitely. But the work can give PTSD sufferers hope to fuel a new start in a new life.

John Cameron Gives Today Show Audiences First Look at New Book and Insight Into TV Series Exposing Edward Edwards The Most Prolific Serial Killer of All Time

ReelTime Media (OTCMKTS:RLTR)

I have always had tremendous respect for The Today Show and it is kind of surreal appearing on one of the longest running and coveted shows in history.”

— John Cameron

SEATTLE, WA, USA, April 12, 2018 / — Veteran detective John Cameron will be appearing on the Today Show to discuss the chilling documentary series “It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards” scheduled to begin airing on The Paramount Network April 16, 2018 of which John stars in.
John may also be discussing new evidence that has since been uncovered linking Edward Edwards to killing Tracy Halbach and framing Steve Avery among many other chilling discoveries included in his new book that is being published at the time of the Today Show giving audiences the very first opportunity to investigate new revelations that have since been discovered. The new book “It Was Always Me – Edward Edwards The Most Prolific Serial Killer of All Time” can be purchased by viewers at at a discount during and after The Today Show and at other online book stores at full price after the airing on The Today Show. The new book is being published by publicly traded ReelTime Media (OTCPK:RLTR) who recently partnered with Cameron to help bring the information and evidence contained in it to the public.
The series inspired by Johns game changing book “It Was Me – Edward Wayne Edwards The Serial Killer You Never heard Of” follows John and Wayne Wolf ( Edwards grandson) as they investigate convicted serial killer Ed Edwards and uncovers evidence connecting Edwards to some of the most famous murder cases of the last 60 years. Some of which are still unsolved, yet others convicted and, in some cases, executed innocent men.
The book and evidence presented in it has recently gained national exposure in In Touch , and in People spawning a six-part series based on the book set to begin airing April 16. On The Paramount Network (formerly Spike) sparking perhaps the single most controversial discoveries in criminal history.
Although Ed Edwards was convicted of only 5 murders the discoveries presented in the book have led many to believe that the spree could have exceeded 60 people spanning over 60 years including many of the most famous murders of all time. Murders such as those committed by the Zodiac Killer, the deaths of Elizabeth Short, known as the Black Dahlia, JonBenet Ramsay, as well as the murders of Teresa Halbach and Laci Peterson, whose convicted killers already sit in prison.

Veteran Detective/Author John Cameron exclaimed: “I have always had tremendous respect for The Today Show and it is kind of surreal appearing on one of the longest running and coveted shows in history. The Paramount Network is truly doing a tremendous amount of good by shining a light on this evidence and in helping so many families to begin to understand what actually happened. I hope that once people see the series and read the information contained in my new book that there will be even more evidence forthcoming and that more good can come from understanding this unprecedented series of murders.”
Barry Henthorn ReelTime Media CEO stated: “Having spent time with John through the process of publishing his new book it is impossible not to take note of his passion and dedication to solving murders whose victims otherwise would be unprecedented. What he has been able to uncover relating to Edward Edwards and his consistent pattern of killing and setting people up is unspeakable. I am very much looking forward to the public being able to see the evidence presented in Johns new book that we are publishing tomorrow, and I am riveted by being able to watch the documentary on The Paramount Network.”

— Michael Nir

BOSTON, MA, UNITED STATES, April 11, 2018 / — Michael Nir, an expert on corporate leadership, has written his tenth book, “The Pragmatist’s Guide to Corporate Lean Strategy” published by Apress, a Springer Nature company.

In his book, Nir outlines a step-by-step framework on how to adopt lean agile, strategies for large corporations to fight and survive digital disruption in business.

What do Facebook, Apple and Google have in common that has catapulted them to the top? A great consumer experience! Organizations invest big money every year developing new products and features. But how many of those expensive features make an impact on the bottom line? Today, the key to winning digital disruption, reducing waste and increasing revenue is understanding the consumer experience, and building valuable solutions that serve them. The practical steps outlined in the book are based on Nir’s experience leading major transformations at global organizations in a variety of industries. His previous clients include: Intel, Philips, Citi, Dun & Bradstreet, Unilever, Siemens and many others.

An expert in human interaction with a master’s in engineering and 18 years’ experience, Nir shares strategies and recognizes what customers really want, and how to streamline end to end delivery, thereby increasing sales, and saving time and money.

Thanks to that international experience, Nir coaches executives at those corporations and others how to train and build effective teams in business based on lean agile project management, including how to provide leadership for those teams. At the same time, he shows how to keep those teams collaborative and focused – able to deal with rapidly changing business environments; lessons he learned from his failures and his successes in areas like healthcare, insurance, hi-tech, software, infrastructure, manufacturing, financial services, and data driven businesses.

With training in Gestalt, Nir balances both technical skills and people know-how in his books and when speaking to corporations about completing projects on time or ahead of schedule; saving costs for their finished products. For one Fortune 100 company he was able to save $12 million in costs.

His previous books discussed business agility and agile project management, team influencing, how to lead project teams, how to build effective business teams, and the importance of how body language can silently provide influence and leadership at a business and on project teams. His books are ranked #13 in the Business and Investing Category on Amazon.

Along with authoring his books, Nir is a sought-after speaker and consultant at conferences and many organizations faced with rapid changes to their businesses. When speaking to executives and managers, he helps them focus on innovative approaches to their business, helping them concentrate on the consumer experience, leading to a fast, lean agile approach to bringing new products online.

Based in Boston, Nir speaks to businesses and other organizations around the world – bringing his unique approach to team building, coaching and agile framework to companies seeking transforming their business in a constantly changing marketplace.

Additionally, Nir works with executives at many organizations, coaching them on how to be an effective leader in a team centric approach, rather than using traditional top down command-and-control.

The world’s first collaborative and curatable learning platform has over 55,000 titles, of which 40% consists of audio and video content

The sector needs to be at the cutting edge of technology. BlueBottleBiz is leading from the front in 21st century learning.”

— Marcelino Elosua, CEO and Founder of BlueBottleBiz.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, April 10, 2018 / — BlueBottleBiz, the world’s first collaborative and curatable learning platform, has announced a growth in its available catalogue to 55,000 titles.

This growth also makes BlueBottleBiz one of the world’s largest platforms for business, technical and IT, and software programming materials.

Ahead of the London Book Fair, we must recognise that the elearning sector is going through a seismic shift in the way it deals with learning resources. Books are still a staple of the learning process but, with more technology being introduced to the classroom and the workplace, elearning is having to diversify to meet this changing environment.

With more video content being uploaded in the last 30 days than the major US television networks produce in the last 30 years (source link:, video learning has been growing in popularity. 98% of organizations said they would implement video as part of their digital learning strategy and videos are expected to be responsible for 80% of the internet traffic in the world by 2019. (source link:

Most of the expected growth is to come from Asia, Eastern Europe and Africa in the next six years. (source link: Online video and audio learning, especially mobile friendly titles, will need to be prepared for enhanced usership and increased traffic. This announced from BlueBottleBiz is a statement of working towards this, and the beginning of this new era of learning, where different learners can learn in different ways, all on one platform.

“The sector needs to be at the cutting edge of technology, and this announcement from BlueBottleBiz is a leading example of where elearning needs to be heading. We are leading from the front in 21st century learning,” commented Marcelino Elosua, CEO and Founder of BlueBottleBiz.

Christian Smythe, Head of Content and Partnerships, praised the announcement. “We are thrilled to have so much video and audio content on our platform. In this technologically diverse world where we are learning every time we look at a screen, having so much content, including books, articles and journals as well as new media content, helps all different kind of learners as much as possible.”

New Novel ‘Populace’ Explores What Happens to the U.S. After Nuclear Blast Destroys Major Cities

Rust Belt author A M Wilson tackles timely political and philosophical questions in synthetic future where the masses are ruled by a few

The chaos that ensued after Trump’s victory — the polarization, the militarization and the uncertainty of it all — became a motivation for completing and releasing this story.”

— A M Wilson, Populace author

FLINT, MICH., UNITED STATES, April 9, 2018 / — “America 2151. New York. Washington. Chicago. Los Angeles. All wiped out from nuclear blasts.”

And so begins the introduction to the just-released first novel from author A M Wilson, who hails from Flint, Michigan. The bleak yet beautiful novel gives readers a glimpse into a what-if scenario where most of the major population bases of America have been wiped out, leaving Omaha, Nebraska, the unlikely capital of the New United States.

It’s a story about power, control, subsistence, corruption and addiction that takes place in a society too busy trying to survive to feel real emotion.

As one reviewer writes: “The story takes many unexpected twists and turns, but through it all you can tell you're in the hands of a confident and able author exploring some of the most important questions we face: Who are we really? What happens when the facade of life falls apart? What happens when you help pull that facade down?”

Another reviewer notes how “strange a book this is” and deciphers it is “about what could happen in the future if the world keeps going the way it is.”

Populace is ultimately a kind of cautionary tale about what could become the future of the United States, if we ruin ourselves from the inside.

“This story had been living inside me for quite some time, well before the 2016 presidential election,” Wilson said. “But the way I felt about the future of our country after the chaos that ensued after Trump’s victory — the polarization, the militarization and the uncertainty of it all — became a motivation for completing and releasing this story.”

It’s a novel that will make readers think, no matter what they think of America.

The book is available now exclusively on

About A M Wilson:
A M Wilson has loved telling stories since he couldn't see over a kitchen counter. His first breakthrough novel Populace, an Orwellian thriller, was published in 2018. In his own words, Wilson has always loved humor, "humor that challenges our worldview, humor that gets us through hard times, humor that makes us realize our own humanity." As a novelist, has the burden to believe in everything as possible. A M is from Flint, Mich., originally, but has moved around a lot, entering a lot of brave new worlds — to Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, California, Spain and Argentina. A M has been a farmer, a groundskeeper, a librarian, a fast-food worker, a bagboy, a political organizer and a shill.

His first novel, Populace, is on sale now at
