New eBook “COVID-19: A Devil’s Choice” Reveals Devastating Deceptions to Advance an Aggressive Global Agenda

John Schroeter

“John Schroeter has just brilliantly succeeded in this venture. Kudos to him for masterfully penning this. This a must read. I was most informed and inspired.”

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, July 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The COVID-19 pandemic is a topic rife with confusion, fear, misinformation, competing agendas, and toxic politicization—all of which confound efforts at arriving at anything resembling consensus. The new eBook, “COVID-19: A Devil’s Choice” helps us to make sense of it all. The product of intense investigations by award-winning author, technologist, and futurist, John Schroeter, the book is informed by respected medical professionals, documents provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), the CDC, and other original sources that validate the book’s surprising, counterintuitive, and sometimes shocking findings. The book reveals not only the little-reported science related to the coronavirus, but the irreconcilable goals of various groups vying to capitalize on the pandemic to advance their respective objectives. Equally important, it shows that we have a choice about which version of the future will ultimately prevail—and precisely how a pandemic can be exploited to further well-meaning but misguided, or even nefarious, ends.

Dr. Sanjiv Chopra, Professor of Medicine and former Faculty Dean Continuing Education, Harvard Medical School praises Schroeter’s book saying that, “John Schroeter has just brilliantly succeeded in this venture. Kudos to him for masterfully penning this. This a must read. I was most informed and inspired.”

Presented in 100 succinctly-stated arguments or “points, ”A Devil’s Choice” illuminates the true nature of the coronavirus pandemic, who and what is behind it, what we can expect, and most important, what we can do. The book concludes with an extensive Q&A with Jane M. Orient, M.D., executive director of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons. The book has already had a big impact and achieved much critical success in the medical world and continues to do so.

Dr. Simon Thornley, Public Health Physician, lecturer and researcher in the section of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at The University of Auckland, NZ, adds, “In this thoughtful book, John Schroeter does an excellent job of distilling the science that is not being heard. It is a much needed counter to the doomsday narrative that we’ve all been fed. This book gives me renewed hope for our future.”

Another prominent medical professional chiming in to praise John Schroeter’s book includes David L. Katz, MD, who says, “The paths to total harm minimization are illuminated by thinking past the simplistic reflexive responses, considering options both intuitive and otherwise. Well informed consensus is good; premature consensus is the death of insight.”

“A Devil’s Choice” is certainly a book you do not want to miss. You can rest well knowing that when you buy it you will be captivated in a truthful and bold treatise that brings new insight into the current pandemic. In addition, when you purchase “A Devil’s Choice” for just $2.99, the proceeds benefit Dissenting Voices. Dissenting Voices, an imprint of Abundant World Institute, is dedicated to helping create and foster the conditions that enable human flourishing and abundance everywhere. “To these ends, we seek to inspire, inform, educate, encourage, enable, and support the application of critical thinking, imagination, and innovation to global challenge,” states Dissenting Voices. John Schroeter’s book conveys these very values in a fact-driven exposition free of misinformation.

Professor Karol Sikora, MA, PhD, who has been described as a leading world authority on cancer and is a founder and medical director of Rutherford Health, also strongly advocates this book. Sikora concludes that, “John’s text illuminates the clear path forward. Let’s follow the path he plots and move forward in a safe and yet ambitious way.”

— Sujai G Pillai

BANGALORE, KARNATAKA, INDIA, July 11, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — An Indian company StartupCell has introduced a new e-learning method called “Project-Based Learning”. StartupCell Project Based Learning is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge.

It aims at promoting entrepreneurship among students and helping them to identify entrepreneurship opportunities, competencies, team management, explore business ideas, market analysis to generate revenue. Students also gain practical hand-on-experience in creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and project management. These qualities are considered a heart for successful entrepreneur startup. Mr. Sujai G Pillai, founder of StartupCell said in a statement.

Project-Based Learning is a student-centered pedagogy that involves a dynamic online classroom approach that helps students to gain knowledge and skills in exploring real-world challenges and identify solutions to address these challenges. The program offers many courses like app development, UI, design thinking.
The unique feature of the StartupCell is that it is not only empowering youth and other people through learning but also helping them to connect with investors to get funds for startup. The government grant opportunities also explored, he added.

Mr. Sujai G Pillai said that “the Covid-19 lockdown has pushed millions of people into poverty. Due to the corona situation, many people have lost their jobs and hundreds of the graduates are seeking new employment opportunities. We have introduced a project-based-learning program to help people to start entrepreneurship. It will open a new door of prosperity to the youth of India”.

Akshay, a 20-year-old college student shared his experience. Once he ordered a birthday cake but it was not up to mark in taste. I decided to develop an app like Zomato or Swiggy so that no one should be disappointed on the day of his birth. But lack of technical knowledge was a great barrier to accomplish the aim.
I heard about startupcell and posted my idea on its portal. I received a quick response. I enrolled in a course. I have developed an app and we are planning to launch it with investor support.

MEDICAL MARIJUANA: A CLINICAL HANDBOOK Provides Up-to-Date Insights on the Science of Cannabis and Its Medicinal Use

Medical Marijuana:  A Clinical Handbook book cover

Medical Marijuana: A Clinical Handbook

Medical Marijuana:  A Clinical Handbook back cover

Medical Marijuana: A Clinical Handbook

This timely medical marijuana clinical handbook is the most comprehensive and best book on the topic.”

— Stephen Ross, MD, NYU Grossman School of Medicine

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, July 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new textbook, Medical Marijuana: A Clinical Handbook (Wolters Kluwer, September 2020), provides an objective look at the history and science of the plant and strips away the cultural and political baggage that often clouds any meaningful examination of cannabis's therapeutic value.

The authors, Drs. Samoon Ahmad and Kevin P. Hill, wrote the book to provide clinicians with the most accurate information available on cannabis and empower them to give their patients the best advice on treatment. Cannabis continues to be the single most misunderstood plant on Earth. It has been cultivated and used for thousands of years yet remains not just enigmatic but deeply polarizing.

"Both sides of the argument often fail to see through the fog of the culture war, and both sides are at times guilty of being more intent on winning a political argument than approaching the issue with a clear head and an agenda couched solely in the tradition of empiricism and science," Drs. Ahmad and Hill write in Medical Marijuana. "This book hopes to change that."

Both authors have extensive clinical experience and impressive resumes. Dr. Hill is an addiction specialist and currently Director of the Division of Addiction Psychiatry at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard University, and author of Marijuana: The Unbiased Truth About the World's Most Popular Weed. Dr. Ahmad is a practicing physician in New York City, Founder of the Integrative Center for Wellness, and a Professor of Psychiatry at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. He has also written extensively about PTSD and coauthored multiple books, including recent editions of Kaplan & Sadock's Pocket Handbook of Clinical Psychiatry and Kaplan & Sadock's Pocket Handbook of Psychiatric Drug Treatment.

The authors focus on tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the intoxicating substance in cannabis and typically the focal point of medical marijuana programs. They also examine the relevant science on many other cannabinoids found in the plant, especially cannabidiol (CBD). Included in the book is detailed analysis of local and federal laws governing the use of cannabis and a state-by-state guide for clinicians and patients. They have also created a companion website, cannabistextbook.com, that will monitor changes to local, state, and federal regulations as they occur, and share recently published cannabis-related research.

"This timely medical marijuana clinical handbook is the most comprehensive and best book on the topic in my opinion," said Stephen Ross, M.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Addictive Disorders and Experimental Therapeutics Research Laboratory at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. "Excellently written, the book provides an enormous amount of concise and clinically relevant information on everything related to medical cannabis including historical and regulatory aspects, the dizzying diversity of the many cannabis constituent components, review of the endocannabinoid system, relevant pharmacology, therapeutic preparations and the existing and potential clinical applications of medical cannabis throughout medicine, psychiatry and neurology."

The book enables clinicians to easily find information that is pertinent to specific body systems and disciplines. It also provides a wealth of information about the plant itself. The book begins by examining its classification, morphology, history and constituents. It then moves on to a cultural history of cannabis in the United States to provide a context for the regulations and laws currently governing its use. The book then describes the body's endocannabinoid system and the pharmacological profile of CBD and THC before moving on to specific applications for cannabis in specialty practices such as:

Endocrinology
Oncology
Gastroenterology
Neurology
Psychiatry
Gynecology
Rheumatology
Internal medicine
Ophthalmology
Hepatology
Dermatology

Finally, the authors describe the dangers of excessive cannabis use and potential adverse effects.

"It is our hope that we can eliminate unwarranted stigmas that continue to hound this quirky plant and to dispel any notions that cannabis is either a miracle drug or the devil's weed," the authors write. "If nothing else, we hope to provide our peers in the medical community with some degree of clarity so that they can make decisions based on the best available evidence and pass on accurate information to [their] patients."

About the Authors

Samoon Ahmad, M.D. is Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and serves as Unit Chief of Bellevue Medical Center's Inpatient Unit. A practicing physician for over twenty-five years, Dr. Ahmad has dedicated his professional life to helping individuals find balance in their mental and physical well-being. He founded the Integrative Center for Wellness to execute his innovative vision of incorporating psychiatric treatments with holistic therapies—including nutritional therapy, yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and plant-based medicines—to emphasize wellness of both the body and the mind. He specializes in treating patients with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, stuttering, and weight management issues.

Kevin P. Hill, M.D., M.H.S. is an addiction psychiatrist and Director of the Division of Addiction Psychiatry at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Hill has conducted clinical research and written on a wide variety of topics including medical cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD), and addiction to alcohol, cannabis, and opioids. As a leading cannabis expert, he has spoken nationally and appeared often on radio and television on the topics of cannabis policy and treatment, offering a balanced, evidence-based stance on these issues.

Reviews

"Drs. Ahmad and Hill are to be congratulated on producing a book that is a complete and thorough guide to cannabis, is most timely and highly informative, and will appeal to a large audience."

-Benjamin Sadock, MD, Menas S. Gregory Professor of Psychiatry at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine and NYU Langone Health

"This timely medical marijuana clinical handbook is the most comprehensive and best book on the topic."

-Stephen Ross, MD, Director of the Addictive Disorders and Experimental Therapeutics Research Laboratory and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at NYU Grossman School of Medicine

"The authors have written an extremely comprehensive book that will give readers
a more nuanced appreciation of cannabis. This includes its potential therapeutic value, its effects on the endocannabinoid system, and the parts it has played in cultures throughout the world."

-Joyce Cenali, Founding Partner & COO of Big Rock Partners, a strategic advisory firm

"Though written primarily for healthcare practitioners and clinicians,
anyone hoping to gain a greater understanding about cannabis and its therapeutic applications
will find this work extremely informative and helpful."

-Marion Mariathasan, CEO of Simplifya, the leading regulatory and compliance software platform serving the cannabis industry

"This timely medical marijuana clinical handbook is the most comprehensive and best book on the topic in my opinion," said Stephen Ross, M.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Addictive Disorders and Experimental Therapeutics Research Laboratory at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. "Excellently written, the book provides an enormous amount of concise and clinically relevant information on everything related to medical cannabis including historical and regulatory aspects, the dizzying diversity of the many cannabis constituent components, review of the endocannabinoid system, relevant pharmacology, therapeutic preparations and the existing and potential clinical applications of medical cannabis throughout medicine, psychiatry and neurology."

The book enables clinicians to easily find information that is pertinent to specific body systems and disciplines. It also provides a wealth of information about the plant itself. The book begins by examining its classification, morphology, history and constituents. It then moves on to a cultural history of cannabis in the United States to provide a context for the regulations and laws currently governing its use. The book then describes the body's endocannabinoid system and the pharmacological profile of CBD and THC before moving on to specific applications for cannabis in specialty practices such as:

Endocrinology
Oncology
Gastroenterology
Neurology
Psychiatry
Gynecology
Rheumatology
Internal medicine
Ophthalmology
Hepatology
Dermatology

Finally, the authors describe the dangers of excessive cannabis use and potential adverse effects.

"It is our hope that we can eliminate unwarranted stigmas that continue to hound this quirky plant and to dispel any notions that cannabis is either a miracle drug or the devil's weed," the authors write. "If nothing else, we hope to provide our peers in the medical community with some degree of clarity so that they can make decisions based on the best available evidence and pass on accurate information to [their] patients."

Trainer Launches Kickstarter Campaign for Book About Joint Pain From Sitting

NEW ORLEANS, LA, USA, July 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — An American trainer has launched a Kickstarter campaign to support the creation and publishing of his debut book, "Compete as an Athlete in the Game of Life," which aims to help people with sitting-related joint pain. His goal is to raise US$10,000 by July 22 so the book can be completed and published for Thanksgiving 2020.

Matt Peale has been a personal trainer since 2008, specializing in work with older adults and children. Through this work as a trainer, he became deeply passionate about educating others about the proper mechanics of movement. A sedentary lifestyle, which involves too much sitting, can result in back, neck, and hip pain. This type of pain is common in America and can be debilitating to many. Mr. Peale hopes that his book will give people the tools and knowledge they need to take on life with an enthusiastic and competitive nature.

Current events have only escalated the need for this book, as hundreds of millions of people around the world are now required to stay at home. Many are unsure of how to maintain proper posture or to correct poor posture, which can't be fixed just by working out. This book will provide everyone from teenagers to executives to retirees with all the specific information they need to improve their posture and eliminate sitting-related joint pain.

"Compete as an Athlete in the Game of Life" will offer both valuable information and tangible solutions to readers. Portions of the book will be dedicated to explaining joint pain, why it happens, and, more specifically, how that pain is a direct result of sitting. The remainder will focus on the original online coaching program Mr. Peale has developed to overcome these issues in a way that is detailed and informed but accessible and easy to follow for readers.

The raised funds from this campaign will go towards the $13,500-worth Advantage Forbes Publishing program, with Matt Peale himself committing to self-funding the remaining $3,500 if the $10,000 goal is not surpassed. The cost covers the writing services as well as the publication and release of "Compete as an Athlete in the Game of Life" both online and in bookstores.

There are 20 spots available for contributors that donate $500-plus to have their name written in the book's Acknowledgement page in appreciation of their support.
