What Are Tricks Abusers Use to Control Victims? "Unreported" Author Veera Mahajan Reveals

Image: “Unreported: Learning to LIVE free” Author Veera Mahajan; Photo Credit: Michael Cimorelli, all rights reserved.

Tricks Revealed that Abusers Use to Control Victims: "Unreported" Author Veera Mahajan Explains in Exclusive Interview Here:

When you are giving an abuser a chance to improve, you are not saying it's OK to hurt you once in a while. If they continue to hurt you, you have to separate yourself from your abuser.”

— Veera Mahajan, Author; "UNREPORTED: Learning to LIVE free"

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 15, 2019 / — About Veera Mahajan

Author, Mediator, and Public Speaker; Veera Mahajan is one of Malibu’s most esteemed community leaders. Author of the critically acclaimed book “Unreported: Learning to LIVE free," about recognizing and overcoming domestic abuse and stopping domestic violence, Veera Mahajan is also a highly praised Educator, Mediator, and Publisher.

Veera did an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Sentinel recently, and the following is an excerpt of that highly valuable, important and educational discussion, concerning how to avoid the tricks many abusers may use to control their victims.

Veera Mahajan; Exclusive Interview, Courtesy of The Hollywood Sentinel:

Q: What are some of the tricks, phrases, or games an abuser may try to use to get their victim to stay, or not report them? How can one overcome this?

Signs to look for as detailed by "UNREPORTED" author Veera Mahajan, are the following:

–Abusers may beg you for forgiveness

–Abusers may try to buy your love back with gifts

–Abusers may shower you with praise

–Abusers may then hurt you physically or emotionally all over again

Veera: Once they know that you bought their excuses and you are back, they will turn back to the same perpetrator that they were. This is called the "cycle of abuse" or "honeymoon period." It happens again.

You have to look for patterns. If the behavior is not changing for good and keeps coming back, see that as the pattern–and run. It is not going to get better. They are only nice when they want to be forgiven, but they are not capable of maintaining the good behavior. You have to stop accepting the apologies, and see them for who they are, and figure out how to separate yourself from them. Believe that you deserve better and say "no" to abuse!

Q: Great advice. How can a person stuck in an abusive situation most quickly and effectively gain more self-esteem?

Veera: Financial independence is very important to gain more self-esteem and freedom from an abusive situation. The best way to be financially independent is to educate yourself so you can create a job or business so you can take care of yourself and your children if you have any. Education and financial independence puts you on a path to freedom. When you are free from abusive people and situations, and are responsible for your own self, then you are not depending on someone else for your daily livelihood, and you slowly start feeling good and proud of yourself. The more independent you are, the more confident you feel. The more confident you are, the more you gain self-esteem.

Q: Excellent. Is it possible to forgive ourselves and love ourselves fully if we cannot forgive those who have abused us? What if a person does not know how or feels they are not able to forgive the person or persons who abused them? What should they do?

Veera: Loving ourselves and forgiving ourselves for accepting abuse from others is the only way to move forward and have a better future. Forgiving others without loving ourselves is the worst thing we can do. That is what most of us do though. We keep forgiving others for hurting us and since we don’t love ourselves, we keep allowing them to hurt us again and that is how we continue to live in abusive situations.

You cannot rush the forgiveness. Focus on loving yourself one day. One kind deed toward yourself will help you love yourself. Pretend that you do, and tell yourself everyday that you love yourself. One morning when you will look in the mirror and tell yourself, “I love myself,” you will believe yourself and smile. Once you believe that you love yourself and are happy with yourself, hating someone else will not be important.

One day, you will realize that the abuser is living their own journey where he or she had a horrible job to hurt you but they were not able to break you. You love yourself enough to not waste any more time on people who hurt you. Don’t let them take space in your mind rent-free. They are not worth it, they don’t deserve it. If it takes forgiving them to move on and enjoy your life, then you do that. Forgiving them is not for them; you don’t even have to tell them. Just do it and put them in the past where they belong. Leave them behind and go into your wonderful, beautiful, loving life!

Q: Great. People can change and become better. So what if one's abuser is trying to change and be a better person, and making improvements, but they are not improving fast enough? Should the person still leave or give them a chance? How does one balance and weigh forgiveness, and allowance for growth, versus being fed-up and giving up?

Veera: Every situation is different. It depends on your unique situation and relationship. If you still want to give the relationship a chance, and you see real effort and progress, then it may be worth giving them a chance, but make sure they know that while they are working on themselves to be better, they do not get a free-pass to be mean to you every so often and expect it to be okay with you. When you are giving them a chance to improve, you are not saying, it is okay to hurt you once in a while. If they continue to hurt you, and you have given them enough chances, you have to separate yourself from your abuser. You have to love and respect yourself, and not compromise that for anyone. Your first and most important job is self-care.

Q: That's great advice. Thank you.

Paul David Pope: I feel the world needs saving, now more than ever!

Three generations of Popes

Paul David Pope

The legitimate press is currently under attack.

Whosoever shall destroy a soul, it shall be as if he has destroyed the entire world. But whosoever saves a life, it is considered the saving of an entire world.”

— Paul David Pope

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 / — I am thrilled to report that I am quoted in this awesome article written by Jim Rutenberg of the New York Times!
The National Enquirer has taken a much different direction since my father stood at the helm. His legacy was built upon uncovering the truths buried within every story that floods the media of our country. One memorable example is when we broke the Gary Hart story. That’s when the mainstream media really started paying attention.
I have a lot of content that I will be releasing in the near future. Between my grandfather, my father, and me, there are many interesting stories to tell.
I am sure my father’s intention with his media empire was not to be used after his passing as an outlet for “Fake News” If he was still alive the true, verifiable stories would be endless. If someone revealed the real untold stories, people would be shocked and horrified.
Transparency and accountability are super important, especially for people in the position of power. No one should be above the law.
The legitimate press is currently under attack. The basis of democracy is reliant on the freedom of the press. Society as a whole relies on information to be unbiased and unfiltered. Without the press, this is not possible. I am very concerned about the direction our world is going in.
I can’t be one of the people on the sidelines not doing anything. I feel the world needs saving, now more than ever!

Dan “Tito” Davis Completes the First Seven Continent Book Tour with Antarctica Signing

Dan “Tito” Davis bio picture

Gringo audiobook cover

Dan "Tito" Davis might be the first author to hold a book signing on all seven continents

The exciting part of my seven continent world tour for my book was the interesting people I met, and the excitement they had for my book "Gringo"”

— Dan "Tito" Davis

SACRAMENTO, CA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 / — Dan “Tito” Davis is the award-winning bestselling author of the book "Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive" and just finished his final seven continent book signing tour in Antarctica this month. Davis has been promoting his book and his message of growth through adversity after being released from a 10-year prison incarceration following 13 years on the run from the US government. Davis is one of the first, if not the only author, to do a book signing tour across all seven continents. Along his way, Davis also had a private audience with and presented a copy of his book to the Dalai Lama in Dharamshala, India

Davis has traveled around the world promoting his book, starting his seven-continent tour with a book signing in Hong Kong and then continuing through to Antarctica this month. His full tour included the following locations:

1. Hong Kong, Asia, December 21, 2017

2. Cape Town, South Africa, February 22, 2018

3. Buenos Aires, Argentina, March 23, 2018

4. Frankfort, Germany, July 29, 2018

5. Sydney, Australia, September 14, 2018

6. Key West, Florida, USA November 1, 2018

7. Port Lockroy, Antarctica, January 4, 2019

Dan “Tito” Davis comes from a town in South Dakota so small that everyone knows their neighbor’s cat’s name. After attending Black Hills State University in South Dakota, he transferred to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and began manufacturing White Crosses, aka legal speed pills, and soon had the Bandidos motorcycle club distributing ten million tablets a week.

After serving five years of a 102-month prison sentence for tax evasion he could no longer fly for the airlines, his airline transport pilot license was revoked because of his conviction. Being a convicted felon, he was also denied a Nevada real estate license. After striking out on his first two job endeavors, he decided to contact the Colombian friends he had made in prison and began selling marijuana. After he began distributing marijuana, he was set up on a false methamphetamine charge by a childhood friend facing his own drug charges. Facing thirty years, Davis slipped into Mexico, not knowing a word of Spanish. He became Tito and began a thirteen-year odyssey that led him to an underground hideout for a Medellin cartel in Colombia; through the jungles of the Darien Gap, the world’s most dangerous passageway; being interrogated in Cuba, and much more. In 2007 Davis was unlawfully renditioned from Venezuela and returned to the United States where he was convicted of fleeing his original charge and parole violations, but not for the wrongful methamphetamine charge.

During his ten-year prison sentence, Dan “Tito” Davis penned a 700-page manuscript, which chronicled his life on the run from the United States federal government. While living in a halfway house in Wyoming, Davis met with writer Peter Conti and quickly tapped him to “write his story the right way.” For a year the two worked diligently to turn Davis’s raw material into an action-packed memoir called “Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive.”

The audiobook of “Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive” as well as the ebook are currently available on Amazon and at Visit Dan “Tito” Davis’s Wikipedia page for more information about him. He can be contacted at

From the Depths: Jimmy Colson’s rags to riches (and impact) story

From Down and Out to Helping Those Who Have Lost Limbs to Get Back on Their Feet and Children with Tough Upbringings to Have a Better Chance at Life

For so long I struggled to find my way and get past survival mode to flourish mode where I can give back to others and give back to the world, more purposefully. I am finally on the right path.”

— Jimmy Colson

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, USA, January 15, 2019 / — Jimmy Colson grew up forced to beg for money, return stolen merchandise, and dig through dumpsters by his heroin-addicted mother and her criminal friends. Most days Jimmy and his siblings went hungry because any money brought in went toward the next drug fix.

Now a parent himself, Jimmy Colson is committed to breaking the cycle by creating the best childhood possible for his son and daughter and by giving back beyond the four walls of his home so that other children don’t have to experience the same troubled upbringing he had.

Although he never graduated from high school, Jimmy Colson worked hard to become an American Board Certified Orthotist who owns POP Prosthetics, one of the fastest-growing orthotics and prosthetics companies in Las Vegas. They literally get clients who have lost limbs — including veterans, children, and athletes — back on their feet.

With a passion for helping the community locally and abroad, POP Prosthetics leads shoe donation initiatives for the homeless, supports cancer foundations, and sponsors underprivileged families every year.

“For so long I struggled to find my way and get past survival mode to flourish mode where I can give back to others and give back to the world, more purposefully. I am finally on the right path, and so is our business and team.” – Jimmy Colson

Quote from From the Depths: A Journey from Addiction, Abuse, and Homelessness to Positively Impacting the World, published in partnership with Laura Petersen, Founder of Copy That Pops. The book hit #1 bestseller on Amazon in four categories the week of November 26, 2018, during its launch.

Jimmy Colson is on a mission to show others with a troubled past that they too can achieve success and have a positive impact on the world.

It’s time to break the cycle.

Nueva traducción al español del galardonado libro para niños que promueve las habilidades científicas y de lectura

Sus ilustraciones realistas y hechos divertidos sobre los animales ayudan a las familias y a los educadores a crear interés por los temas CTIM

El viaje de un bebé mamífero a la madurez varía dramáticamente dependiendo de si es un oso o un murciélago, una musaraña o una foca, un hipopótamo o un humano.”

— la autora, Dia L. Michels

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 / — Si mi mamá fuera un ornitorrinco, un título recomendado por NSTA y el Libro del Año de Creative Child Magazine, está siendo publicado de nuevo en español, en pasta suave, pasta dura y en formato eBook.

Publicado originalmente en inglés en el año 2002, este libro de 64 páginas ha sido alabado por maestros, bibliotecarios y educadores en museos. Su enfoque para enseñar ciencia por medio de la literatura ayuda a los niños a extraer contenido importante sobre la ciencia mientras fortalecen y practican su habilidad de lectura. El contenido se ajusta directamente a los Estándares Científicos de la Próxima Generación (NGSS, por sus siglas en inglés) y al currículum de primaria y de la escuela intermedia. Además de sus otros premios, este título ganó un Sello de Aprobación de la Fundación Young Voices (Voces Jóvenes).

El texto en español les ayuda a los lectores a desarrollar sus habilidades científicas y de lectura. De acuerdo con el Instituto de Política de Inmigración, "casi un tercio de todos los niños en los Estados Unidos de ocho años o menos están aprendiendo dos idiomas. Estos niños se benefician en gran manera de las oportunidades de aprendizaje temprano de alta calidad". Si mi mamá fuera un ornitorrinco proporciona oportunidades de aprendizaje temprano para quienes hablan español y están aprendiendo inglés.

La universalidad del ciclo de vida es capturada de forma hermosa en este asombroso libro, descrito como "Completamente interesante" [Revista Foreword] y "¡Atractivo tanto visual como verbalmente!" [Academia Carnegie para la Educación de la Ciencia].

Si mi mamá fuera un ornitorrinco revela cómo catorce bebés mamíferos indefensos se convierten en adultos maduros. A diferencia de los reptiles, insectos y anfibios, todas las madres de mamíferos alimentan, protegen y les enseñan a sus crías—incluso cuando esas tareas a menudo desafían sus necesidades de sobrevivencia.

"El viaje de un bebé mamífero a la madurez varía dramáticamente dependiendo de si es un oso o un murciélago, una musaraña o una foca, un hipopótamo o un humano", explica la autora, Dia L. Michels. "A pesar de esas diferencias, cuando todos los mamíferos nacen son completamente indefensos. Todas las mamás mamíferas deben guiar a sus crías para que dejen de ser indefensos y pasen a la madurez. Conforme sus madres les enseñan a encontrar comida y albergue, los mamíferos sociales aprenden otra herramienta importante para la supervivencia: que son parte de una sociedad interconectada en la cual cada miembro ayuda a los demás. Los humanos no son ninguna excepción. Cuando nacen son más inmaduros que cualquier otro bebé y dependen bastante de su familia y de su comunidad. Este libro les ayuda a los niños a verse a sí mismos como miembros de un grupo en lugar de individuos solitarios".

Las historias de estos mamíferos bebés tratan temas científicos importantes, incluyendo percepción sensorial, identificación de infantes, hábitats, ciclos de vida, adaptación, ecología, metabolismo, anatomía, biomas, clasificación y sobrevivencia. La guía para el maestro expande y extiende el contenido científico e incluye actividades prácticas. Está disponible para ser descargada de forma gratuita en el sitio web de la casa editora. Los educadores también aprecian el glosario y las medidas métricas incluidas en el libro.

Este título ha sido utilizado en entornos educativos y también como un recurso de salud en las comunidades. Los Centros de Nacimientos, el Departamentos de Salud y las instalaciones maternas y de salud para niños lo comparten con los futuros padres y con familias que tienen niños pequeños. En el año 2011, el Departamento de Salud de Nuevo México compró 6,000 copias para un programa estatal diseñado para promover la vida familiar, la paternidad responsable y la lectura.

"¡Este es uno de los libros más interesantes que no son de ficción que he leído! Se correlaciona muy bien con nuestro currículum de ciencias y los recursos complementarios son amigables para los maestros", dice Sonya Smith, Coordinadora de Ciencias del programa de Fomento de las Ciencias en Maestros de la Escuela Intermedia, en el estado de Mississippi.

Dia L. Michels, escritora galardonada en ciencias y paternidad responsable con publicaciones internacionales, ha escrito o editado más de una docena de libros para niños y adultos. Además, da presentaciones en todo el país sobre lactancia en los mamíferos, ciencia familiar y crianza con apego. Puede comunicarse con ella en

“Memories of a Devil” Receives Rave Review from Top Literary Site

Kirkus Reviews calls Father Chester’s memoir “a remarkable combination of personal testimony and almost sociological observation.”

Kirkus Reviews calls holocaust survivor’s tale “infinitely inspiring”

Though his hardships were grotesque, his remembrance of human decency in the unlikeliest of places is infinitely inspiriting.

A cleareyed, meditative account of an unfathomable evil. ”

— Kirkus Reviews

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, January 15, 2019 / — The memoir of a Jesuit priest’s journey through the prison camps of Nazi Germany during World War II received glowing praise in its first major literary review.

Kirkus Reviews lauded Father Chester Fabisiak’s recounting of his concentration camp experience in “Memories of a Devil: My Life as a Jesuit in Dachau” as a “cleareyed, meditative account of an unfathomable evil.” The review site also referred to the work as “a brave but disturbing act of bearing historical witness” and “a remarkable combination of personal testimony and almost sociological observation.”

Shortly after Fabisiak became an ordained minister in Poland in 1939, he was arrested along with his fellow Jesuit priests and held in custody by the Gestapo. He escaped, was recaptured, and then transferred to eight prison camps and two forced labor camps before ultimately being sent to the infamous Dachau concentration camp. Through each of these stops, Fabisiak bears witness to not only the barbaric acts of cruelty imposed upon him and his fellow prisoners by the Nazis, but also the kindnesses that were bestowed upon them by those sympathetic to their plight. Kirkus says the book is “far from a hopeless indictment of humankind” and that Fabisiak’s “remembrance of human decency in the unlikeliest of places is infinitely inspiring.”

“Memories of a Devil: My Life as a Jesuit Priest in Dachau” is available for sale on Amazon. The Kirkus Reviews review of the book appears in the company’s January magazine. For more information on the book, go to The entire Kirkus review can be read at

About Father Chester Fabisiak, SJ:

Father Chester Fabisiak, SJ devoted his life to God and his fellow human beings. He enthusiastically taught children and adolescents, seeking to prepare them for the responsibilities of this world as well as their eternal lives. His memoir, “Memories of a Devil,” is his educational, intellectual and spiritual gift to subsequent generations. It is available for purchase and download on Amazon.

Following his death in 1996, Chester’s niece, Danuta, saw that her uncle’s wishes were carried out and that his manuscript was published. She hopes that his retelling of the concentration camps will serve as a cautionary tale to humanity; that turning a blind eye to evil will result in tragedy.

Biography of a Teacher Extraordinaire

FROM SIBERIA TO ST. KITTS: A Teacher's Journey

Katzen’s trajectory is cinematically adventurous, … the twine that holds together its diverse parts, tenderly captured by Simmonds, is her calling to be a teacher.”

— Kirkus review

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 / — This new book is a captivating and deeply researched biography of Zenaida Katzen, a master of foreign language instruction who embraced a comprehensive approach to teaching. Simmonds was a student of Katzen's in the 1960s on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts. After his retirement from 25 years with the New York City public school system as a teacher and administrator, he was compelled to learn all he could about the special woman who inspired him to become an educator.

When she arrived in St. Kitts in 1961 to teach French and Spanish to teenagers (mostly boys), Zenaida Katzen (Zina) had already lived an extraordinary life in Siberia, China, France and Chile. What Simmonds uncovered during his five years of painstaking research is the complex story of a dynamic, driven, independent woman who dedicated her life to education and advancing the lives of children.

Zina Katzen wasn't simply a French teacher or a Spanish teacher – she was an educator who believed in providing students with an experience while they were learning. In St. Kitts, she organized activities and programs outside the classroom, and was able to secure funding from a wealthy friend in China who supported her work. A chapter of Simmonds' book includes letters between Zina and her benefactor, offering a unique perspective into how Zina carefully managed the financial, educational and extracurricular needs of her students, and revealing a more personal side of Zina – an animal lover who was devoted to her mother and aunt, both of whom lived with her in St. Kitts.

Simmonds' story is beautifully written, thorough and includes photos of Zina, her students, friends, family and the places where she lived and taught. Thoughtfully placed throughout the narrative are French phrases and words, which contribute to the cadence of the story, and lend authenticity to its message.

Simmonds spent five years on a research journey traveling to Chile, Hong Kong, Shanghai, St. Kitts and France researching the life of this teacher extraordinaire who profoundly touched the lives of an untold number of students in China, Chile and the Caribbean.

A Teacher’s Journey

Super Lawyer Jay W. MacIntosh to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

NICE, FRANCE, January 14, 2019 / — “You must do the things you think you cannot do,” is one of Eleanor Roosevelt’s most famous quotes. How many times do most of us get discouraged from fear, obstacles, and challenges so daunting we just give up on our dreams? One exceptional woman who has embraced life and lives it to the fullest is a shining example.

Jay is a top notch attorney, actress, real estate agent, college professor, and author of several books including 'Janet Talullah', 'The Origins of George Bernard Shaw’s Life Force Philosophy', 'Moments in Time', 'Capturing Beauty', and 'Jayspeak on the Côte d’Azur'.

“I was never afraid of taking risks,” says Jay. “Throughout my life whenever I have fallen, I got right back up. You can’t let anything defeat you or it will. Think ‘I can do it if I set my mind to it,’ because negativity is terribly discouraging. My dad used to always tell me ‘Rough seas make good sailors,’ and I have always lived by his words.”

Jay attributes her go-getter attitude and fearlessness to her father’s remarkable leadership skills he instilled with her when she was a very young child. After graduating from the University of Georgia with her master’s degree, Jay became an exemplary college Professor landing Head of the Department of Drama at Brenau College (now Brenau University) and Chairman of Division of Humanities for a branch of the University of Georgia. Afterwards, Jay, went into acting, began a lucrative career in real estate, and at the age of 62 graduated from law school and was ultimately recognized as a Super Lawyer. After moving to the south of France, she published seven books.

“After I left law school, I kept that whole young mental attitude which I had all my life,” says Jay. “I thought of myself as the Energizer Bunny and for those people who doubted me when they saw what I was able to achieve, their dismay turned to respect and that was the best feeling in the world.”

Jay finds joy in discovering the simplest things in life. It’s healthy to let go of old, painful memories and not carry unnecessary baggage aching with nostalgia over a time that has past. Instead, create wonderful new memories. With the world in such chaos, It’s truly disheartening to hear so many people giving up on life using countless excuses that stop them from reaching their goals.

“I can’t stress enough the importance of healthy living, and I see so many people allowing themselves to become overweight and age prematurely,” says Jay.

Jay makes it a priority to eat healthy, exercise, and live joyfully. The occasional French wine is always a magnificent treat.

“Every day allow something new into your life and make certain to seek innovative ways of doing things,” says Jay. “So many people woefully give up and wait to die. They stop proactively going after their dreams. Some feel so utterly defeated they withdraw into nothingness. You must keep putting yourself out there and reach for the stars every day and you will be living a life of absolute happiness.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Jay W. MacIntosh in an interview with Jim Masters on Wednesday January 16 at 10 a.m. EST.
