Author Marty Brounstein

Marty speaking

The author will be returning to the Greater Phoenix Area for presentation events to keep sharing his inspirational story of courage, compassion, and rescue.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 / — With the growing acts of hate and violence in this country, how do we remember the good we can instill? Acclaimed author, Marty Brounstein sees a way to bring the best in the world and is on a journey to bring hopeful messages to people. Many people often find themselves living in despair without any hope as they see no more good. But, Brounstein believes we can believe in the best of ourselves. His book, “Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust”, is a true story that sparks the positive for people to hope, connect, and make a positive difference. It is a story that is oh so relevant due to the vast state of divisiveness in our country and he is making sure the story and its messages are being told to people all throughout.

“With the high amount of political discord and the growing acts of hate and violence in our country today, messages that reinforce such positive values as care, respect, and unity resonate strongly with people. These are messages that provide hope rather than despair, so relevant for today,” states Marty Brounstein.

Now into his 9th year of a journey of sharing an inspirational story of courage, compassion, and rescue, San Francisco Bay Area storyteller and Brounstein is coming to the Valley of the Sun from mid January through mid March to continue telling this remarkable story here. It is conveyed through his book “Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust”.

Marty is the humble messenger for a Righteous Christian couple from the Netherlands named Frans and Mien Wijnakker, whose heroic rescue efforts saved the lives of over two dozen Jews. Their courage and compassion provide a positive and moving story amidst the horrific tragedy known as the Holocaust, with lessons for our lives today. Marty also has a meaningful personal connection to this story, which he reveals in his engaging storytelling presentation.

“Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust” has certainly touched many hearts and has given Brounstein recognition. Brounstein recently one, the Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Holocaust Book – 2019” for his Holocaust novel. In addition, he first received the prestigious honor of the Jefferson Award on August 26, 2019, which recognizes those who perform acts of public service and good in America.

This award came from the San Francisco CBS media partner and was given to him for his work yet again on, “Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust.” The Jefferson Awards Foundation, also known as Multiplying Good, is a nonprofit organization that recognizes people who perform acts of public service and good in America. It was founded in 1972 by Jacqueline Onassis, Senator Robert Taft Jr., and Sam Beard.

With all the accolades Brounstein has received for his book, such presentations and discussions are in demand. For the upcoming series, Marty will be in several school classrooms to facilitate book discussion sessions with students who have already read his book. Plus, he will present his Making a Positive Difference program with a couple of workplaces. For the general public, he is doing five storytelling presentation events in the Valley to introduce people to this inspirational story. He recently garnered the Jefferson Award in recognition of the service he has been doing with this story and its relevant lessons for all our lives today. Marty’s work has impacted many lives and these story presentations are ones you won’t want to miss.

Dr. Srini Pillay, Best-Selling Author, Examines the Consciousness in Jimi Hendrix’s Addiction

Dr. Srini Pillay.

“The stigma around drug use and its associated psychiatric vulnerabilities such as depression remain ride.” – Dr. Srini Pillay

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 / — Remembering the birth of Jimi Hendrix 77 years later: November 27, 1942. If Jimi Hendrix was alive, he would be 77 years old this month. Instead, he overdosed and died at the tender age of 27 in room 507 at The Samarkand Hotel in London. Widely regarded as one of the greatest instrumentalists of rock music, Hendrix’s guitar mastery remains an inspiration, my favorite songs of his being “Hey Joe” and “Purple Haze.” The immense joy that he brought so many people was only exceeded by the sadness of losing him. Who knows how music would have changed had his addictions been addressed. More importantly, imagine how much longer he could have enjoyed his own brilliance.

Since then, some things have changed and some have not. The stigma around drug use and its associated psychiatric vulnerabilities such as depression remain rife. While psychiatry has done much to advance the treatment of addictions, the psychiatric lexicon still has subtle descriptors that perhaps contribute to this stigma.

Words like “impaired” judgement, while seemingly accurate, also imply that something is damaged, deranged or strangely altered. But “judgement” itself is not an addressable problem in a person who suffers form addiction. In addiction, judgment is under siege. Choice appears to be an option to outsiders, but for those who are lost and in pain, choice becomes the slave of mood, and even a brilliance like Hendrix’s is eclipsed from one’s own mind. It’s not so much that addiction is disorder, it’s an unfortunate new order that blocks a sustained embrace of life. Its not choiceness though—addiction can be stopped in its tracks.

Though we may not have Hendrix’s talent, we are all born to the dubious gift of this life with one very bright possibility ~ to explore and develop our consciousness safely; to discover our own funky genius; and to share it with others so that we can enjoy the enhancements of collective and connected magic.

Russian Icon Collection – A Complete Book on Antique Russian Icons

Menaion icon

Icon of St. Catherine

The Resurrection – The Harrowing of Hades

Russian Icon is pleased to introduce Russian Icon Collection, our first collaborative project with the Museum of the Russian Icon in Moscow.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, December 11, 2019 / — Russian Icon, a specialist online gallery of religious icon art and artifacts, is pleased to introduce our first collaborative project with the Museum of the Russian Icon in Moscow – a complete book on antique Russian icons, titled Russian Icon Collection. The book represents a collection of museum-quality icons created in the Russian Empire in the 18th-19th centuries, each accompanied by the high-resolution images and detailed iconographic descriptions provided by the leading experts in Russian icon art.

Russian Icon Collection is a result of a several-year research initiative aimed at the popularization of Russian icon art, a unique form of religious art originated in the first years of Christianity. The icons included in the book come from private collections, with many pieces that have rarely or never been displayed to the public before. Each featured icon was professionally evaluated and described by Anna Ivannikova, a reputable art expert and historian who has made a significant contribution to studying antique icons, and Sergey Khodorkovskiy, a private collector and specialist in old Russian icons. Thanks to their efforts, Russian Icon Collection represents a compilation of expert knowledge gained over many years of experience.

The collection of Russian icons included in the book is distinguished by a unique style and value. Most of the featured icons were created in the important iconographic centers of the Russian Empire, particularly in Palekh, Mstyora, and Kholuy. Among the highlights are 18th- and 19th-century icons depicting the scene of The Resurrection – The Harrowing of Hades, also known as “full-cycle icons” or “polnitsy.” Other interesting examples of Russian icon art presented in Russian Icon Collection are the Feodorovskaya Mother of God with the legend of the icon in 16 border scenes, a set of 12 Menaion icons with the depictions of feasts and saints for each month of the ecclesiastical year, a rare icon of the Iconostasis, and hagiographical icons of St. Alexius – the Man of God and St. Catherine, among others.

Russian Icon Collection is the first book released by Russian Icon in collaboration with the Museum of the Russian Icon in Moscow. The latter is the largest private museum of Russian icons and Christian art in Russia, which was founded by the reputable art patron and philanthropist Mikhail Abramov in 2006. The Museum is housed in two historic mansions on Goncharnaya Street in Moscow, reconstructed and equipped for storing and displaying a collection of nearly 5,000 pieces. Admission is free, including guided tours, lectures, and concerts held at the Museum.

A PDF version of Russian Icon Collection can be downloaded on the official website of Russian Icon. The printed version of the book is expected to be released in the near future.

Author Ken Ungerecht to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

NORTHOME, MINNESOTA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 / — If you really contemplate the whole universe, you might feel very insignificant, but each of us is a descendant of the stars. We're all created from a source.

Ken Ungerecht is the author of Divine Principles, which explores the harmony of science and spirituality.

“Science is about “how.” Spirituality is the domain of “why,” says Ken. “I don't think science and spirituality are necessarily at odds with each other. In fact, they're totally in harmony; they complement each other, And both are necessary to live a full life.”

Ken spent 30 years as an engineer in electronic communications. Along the way he discovered his true passion: seeking an understanding of our amazing universe through a determined and systematic search for Universal Truth.

“Even as a scientist, I can acknowledge that I didn't get here by chance,” says Ken. “There was a planning involved. Once I came to that realization, I knew that it was going to be something that I was going to pursue as much as I could.”

Just as there are physical laws to our universe like gravity, Ken believes our universe is supported by important spiritual principles.

“There are answers that are beyond all of us or any of us at this point in time, so what are things that we can know for sure? These are the fundamental ideas we can build on and that is the approach that I take to the book and I identify what I consider to be two important principles of spiritual truth.

The essence of who we really are, cannot possibly be dependent on the body that we're currently living in,” says Ken. In other words, we have to exist independent of that body, which means we had to exist prior to the creation of this body, and we will continue to exist after this body wears out.

The science Ken uses to prove his theories is remarkably straightforward; you don't have to be a scientist to understand it.

“Our main purposes is to bring out our divine nature as much as we can to keep growing,” says Ken. “One of the many gifts that we have received from our creator is the gift of choice. By choosing responses that are in harmony with the universe, we enjoy better outcomes. I personally believe that life exists for us to learn how to have fun.

CUTV News Radio will feature Ken Ungerecht in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on December 13th at 11am EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

2019 Person of the Year for healthcare

Fighting The Corrupt Establishment To Better Our Lives

For too long, hospital groups and group purchasing organizations (GPO) have contributed to high healthcare cost, by stifling competition in the marketplace, and opposing price transparency to patients”

Orgasm & Relationship Coach’s Book, Amplify Your Orgasm, Hits Number 1 on International Best-Sellers List

It’s not a topic that comes up at the average dinner party but it is one that Michael Charming says is of universal interest: orgasms and relationships.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, December 10, 2019 / — He not only believes that sex and orgasm are essential for one’s well-being and ties into a person’s overall happiness, he founded a business and wrote a book to back that up. That book – Amplify Your Orgasm: A Practical Guide for Women and Men on How to Have More Orgasm – this week hit #1 on the international best sellers list. The book’s growing popularity shows that he may very well be onto something.

“Society treats sexual education as taboo and I aim to reverse that by helping people have more orgasm and reconnect to their own sexual desires, passions, genitals and spirituality,” he said during recent interviews on Business Innovators radio and in Business Innovators magazine. “Many of my clients have experienced sexual abuse, shame, violence, traumas, narcissistic behaviors in relationships which has made them suppress their sexual desire or disconnect with their own sexuality. It is one of my greatest joys to see them turn this around through my programs, coaching services and bodywork sessions. My book provides a means of spreading my message of the importance of healthy human sexuality especially orgasms to a broader audience.”

Charming is a self-proclaimed orgasm and relationship coach and says that his clients, who are typically between ages 28 to 55, have experienced transformational life changes including greater confidence, joy, and personal satisfaction, less stress, joyfulness, peace as well as whole body orgasms. He designs unique techniques for each individual based on their past experiences and their current and future goals.

“I founded my company, Charming Love Ltd, to provide coaching and bodywork related services to clients who want to learn to harness their own sexual energy for better relationships either with themselves or in connection with their partner,” explained Charming. “We’ve had such overwhelmingly positive response that now I spend a good deal of time speaking to groups and at conferences on the subject. My overriding message is that sex and orgasm are essential for overall well-being and when clients amplify them, they see their quality of life improve. Have you ever had an experience, where after experiencing nourishing sex and deeply fulfilling orgasms, you felt happy and positive towards life even though your life situation at that time might not have really changed much? Pleasure is available to us but we either run in wrong directions or we don’t know how to get it using ways which are detrimental to us in the long run.”

Charming, who grew up in India, birthplace of the Kamasutra, is an award receiving international speaker, certified bodyworker, certified OM life coach and founder of AOM (Amplified Orgasmic Method). His services are available to both individuals or couples and include coaching and workshops focused on:
Emotional Detox and Full Body De-Armouring
Deep Dive Desires and Fear Excavation
Making Relationships Better
Amplified Orgasmic Method
Sexuality Exploration and Embodiment

“Men want to last longer and provide maximum pleasure to their partner but often struggle to understand what female orgasm actually is. Women don’t allow themselves the permission to ask for what they want. In reality, everyone wants to experience deeper and fulfilling orgasm but yet we don’t want to talk about it. We all have this powerful, healing, creative orgasmic energy within us. I want people to know they don’t have to be shy, scared or embarrassed to talk about it and that it can help them lead a more peaceful, fulfilling life full of happiness and pleasure,” he added.

For more information or to order the best-selling Amplify Your Orgasm, go to (if based in US), (if based in UK) or visit or message him on LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube @michael charming.

Gilded Age New Orleans

Fanny Newcomb and the Irish Channel Ripper book cover

And into this humid, hot mess of a city I toss my heroine, Fanny Newcomb. And ask her to solve a murder.

New Orleans street scene

With a quarter of a million citizens and ships from the mighty Mississippi river depositing strangers in the city every day, someone was always causing trouble for someone else.

Phto of old engraving showing a canal

When New Orleanians tired of the hustle of the Canal Street business district or the bustle of the Mississippi river roustabouts, they retreated to resorts on Lake Pontchartrain, only a few miles from the heart of the city.

So much more than hookers, hurricanes, and Mardi Gras!

Although late 19th century New Orleans was renowned for the hookers of Storyville, the devastating hurricanes of the 1880s, the elevation of Mardi Gras to a state holiday, there’s so much more to know”

— Anna Brazil, author of Fanny Newcomb and the Irish Channel Ripper

SAN MATEO, CA, USA, December 10, 2019 / — Although late 19th century New Orleans was renowned for the hookers of Storyville, the devastating hurricanes of the 1880s, and the elevation of Mardi Gras to a state holiday, there’s so much more to know about the Crescent City during this time. And I trekked into all of New Orleans’ Gilded Age history to write my debut mystery FANNY NEWCOMB & THE IRISH CHANNEL RIPPER.

For starters, there was an assassination that was followed by lynchings (1890), an all-out political insurrection (1874), and a riot that killed 28 people (1900). There were duels in City Park and gunfights on Canal Street. There were too many bankruptcies, lottery swindles, and drunken sailors to count. And every year there was a long, hot summer plagued with the constant threat of yellow fever.

With a quarter of a million citizens and ships from the mighty Mississippi river depositing strangers in the city every day, someone was always causing trouble for someone else. Truly, Gilded Age New Orleans is a dream city for an historical mystery writer!

But back to summer…when the heat truly hit in late May, New Orleanians of means retreated to breezy coastal cities in Louisiana and Mississippi. During this “dull season”, those citizens who remained in town stocked their iceboxes, lightened their wardrobes and rooms with cotton fabrics, and, as advised by the daily newspapers, stopped working by 3pm.

And into this humid, hot mess of a city I toss my heroine, Fanny Newcomb. And ask her to solve a murder. Twenty-five and learning to make a living on her own, Fanny finds herself teaching typewriting to the hard-working factory girls of the city’s Irish Channel neighborhood. It’s a grim life.

Fortunately for Fanny and her crew, in addition to the problems mentioned above, New Orleans was also the entertainment oasis of the South.

Throughout the late 19th century, New Orleanians reveled in what the city maps called Places of Amusement. For grand music, they attended the French or Grand Opera Houses or the Academy of Music. For dramatic entertainment, they visited the St. Charles, Avenue, or Faranta’s Theatres, stages where Edwin Booth and Sarah Bernhardt both made appearances. For a peak at circus curiosities or a bit of common sensationalism, they bought a ticket to Robinson’s Dime Museum.

Horse lovers and gamblers alike visited the Fair Grounds, home of the Louisiana Jockey Club and their racecourse. New Orleanians in need of a quiet place for contemplation could visit a former racecourse, because the 1830’s Metairie Race track had been transformed into the elegant and fashionable Metairie Cemetery after the Civil War. Even in traditionally laissez-faire New Orleans, a cemetery could not be called a Place of Amusement, but because the city had above-ground burials, many of the cemeteries did become celebrated centers of beauty and relaxation.

When New Orleanians tired of the hustle of the Canal Street business district or the bustle of the Mississippi river roustabouts, they retreated to resorts on Lake Pontchartrain, only a few miles from the heart of the city. The “pleasure grounds” of Milneburg, Spanish Fort, and West End offered a variety of hotels, restaurants, casinos, theatres, shooting galleries, and bathhouses. A visit to New Orleans was never considered complete without a “trip to the lake”.

Many New Orleanians were more charitable than cultural. Like all large American cities in the late 19th century, the city was home to churches, synagogues, charity hospitals, Young Christian Associations, a Woman’s Exchange, and—most vital to Fanny Newcomb’s story—a settlement house to assist immigrants in assimilating to their strange and dangerous new city.

Fortunately for me, there is a lot more to Gilded Age New Orleans than hookers, hurricanes, and Mardi Gras. Which means that there’ll be a lot more murders for Fanny Newcomb to investigate.

American Energy Society selects Vaclav Smil as “2019 Energy Writer of the Year"

Vaclav Smil, the "Energy Writer of the Year, 2019" - the premier literary award for energy.

Vaclav Smil, AES Energy Writer of the Year, 2019

Growth: From Microorganisms to Megacities (MIT Press), by Vaclav Smil

Growth: From Microorganisms to Megacities (MIT Press)

The premier literary award for energy, as selected by the American Energy Society

The premier literary award for energy.

In praise of Vaclav Smil: "There is no author whose books I look forward to more than Vaclav Smil." – Bill Gates

Many people … could halve their energy and material consumption … without losing anything important. People don’t realize how much excess they have in their lives.”

— Vaclav Smil

PALO ALTO, CA, UNITED STATES, December 10, 2019 / — The American Energy Society has selected Vaclav Smil as the Energy Writer of the Year, 2019, for his book, Growth: From Microorganisms to Megacities (The MIT Press, 2019).

Vaclav Smil contends that growth is one of two constants at the center of everything: the lives of microorganisms and the development of human beings; the harnessing of wind and water and the invention of machines; the fortunes of economies and the development of cities…." Growth is an omnipresent reality of all life and every society.

The other universal constant: growth has natural limits.

In Growth, Vaclav Smil traces the arc of it all, from origins to end. Consequently, Growth is unavoidably dense. Readers who are intimidated by its weight (both literal and figurative) should comfortably skim certain sections – like the logarithmic analysis of Malthusian population trends – but should also take time to pause and reflect on the many powerful ideas behind the data. Readers who invest the intellectual effort will be rewarded with a profound grasp of Smil’s larger thesis: perhaps humanity has exhausted its limits.

No doubt Growth will have its critics who hold desperately to certain sacred assumptions. For instance, best-selling author Thomas Friedman argued that because the world is flat, everything is interconnected: "what works in one place has value for everyone." But in Growth, Smil rejects such formulae, as when he compares countries: “Denmark has little in common with the Philippines, and neither have much in common with Nigeria. Consequently, Nigeria needs a lot more growth (like food); the Philippines needs a little more growth (like medicine); and Denmark needs a lot less growth.”

In a private interview, Smil explains the underlying message of Growth:

The simple fact is that … wealth and consumption does not necessarily improve life, equanimity or a sense of wellbeing…. At some point, the benefits of wealth and consumption level off in terms of morality and mortality, or health and education…. Many people in developed countries could halve their energy and material consumption…. They could cut down without losing anything important. People don’t realize how much excess they have in their lives.

About the award:
According to Eric Vettel, President of American Energy Society, “The Editorial Board gave its premier award to Vaclav Smil for his sweeping intellectual approach, his courage to confront questions rarely asked, his extraordinary grasp of an enormous subject, his methodical defense of an ambitious thesis with massive amounts of data. And, in recognition of a lifetime of literary achievements.”

About the author:
One of the world’s foremost thinkers on development history and a master of statistical analysis, Vaclav Smil is a distinguished professor emeritus at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. Over more than 40 years, his books on the environment, population, food and energy have steadily grown in influence. A self-proclaimed “slayer of bullshit,” his non-fiction was influenced by his first 26 years in Czechoslovakia “surrounded by Commie propaganda” during the era of the Soviet bloc.

In praise of Vaclav Smil:
• "There is no author whose books I look forward to more than Vaclav Smil." – Bill Gates
• “Vaclav Smil is a brilliant and influential thinker of energy – it’s past, present and future. His books have shaped our understanding on the realities and possibilities of energy transition.” – Jamey Rosenfeld, SVP IHS Markit, co-founder CERA
• "Vaclav Smil has quietly shaped how the world thinks about energy." – Science Magazine
