Author, Transition Coach and Career Expert, Denise Kalm to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WALNUT CREEK, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 / — Denise Kalm is a woman who has many talents and uses them in several businesses, yet they all have one thing in common: she loves to help people and make an impact on their lives. Denise used to work in the IT field, and while it gave her the chance to use her writing skills, she did not have a sense of human impact. She thought about how she could see the direct measure of her efforts on people and began to pursue a degree as a therapist. Along the way, she moved her studies to coaching: not only was that a shorter course, but the philosophy meshed more with her own ideas about people: they are not sick or broken, they just need a catalyst to help them get from point A to point B.

Denise says many people associate a coach with sports, and she doesn’t really mind that. After all, she says, Tiger Woods uses a coach to take his swing to the next level, and people will hire her to help take them from where they are to where they want to be. Denise loves being that type of transitions counselor and a source of support – – especially for women, who she says tend to put their needs a step behind.

With DPK Coaching, Denise helps clients determine their strengths and goals, and in many cases to explore career directions. Clients learn to look for ways to find satisfaction and joy, every day. She urges people, particularly women, to know your worth, and give yourself permission to go after what you want. There’s a time in a woman’s life she says, when you stop and reassess. Are your own needs being met? As a coach, she works with clients on these questions, enabling them to dig deep enough to create actionable plans.

Career counseling and transition coaching are ways that Denise helps people get unstuck. As an author, she also helps other writers overcome writer’s block. Denise has written both fiction and non-fiction, and three of her books are oriented to employment. technology and careers. The most recent is First Job Savvy—Find a Job, Start Your Career. It unifies much of her coaching and counseling advice about doing what you love.

In helping clients figure out their strengths and purpose, Denise could use assessment methodologies popular in coaching, but prefers one of her own. It’s also a tool that clients can use with or without guidance. The person writes down everything they are good at, then gets input from others (friends, spouse, co-workers, etc.) on what they think you are good at. Then, go through the list and see the what common areas and traits shine forth. Cross out things that don’t fit from all perspectives, and a top set will emerge—Your Happiness Intersection.

Denise will speak about being a successful coach, writer and career counselor in her show. You will find value in all she shares, starting with her name: Kalm, it reminds us to maintain our composure as we confront change.

CUTV News will Feature Denise Kalm in an Interview with Jim Masters on Tuesday, January 22nd at 2:00pm EST

Author Adah Kennon Ph.D. to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 / — Dr. Adah F. Kennon worked for 30 years plus as a top notch school psychologist and counselor. She is the owner of Sheba Enterprises, the author of Patient or Profit: Where is the Love? and creator of She holds four advanced degrees including a Ph.D. and three Master’s Degrees in psychology, education and counseling.

Patient or Profit: Where is the Love? is a survival manual and a self-empowerment tool. “My husband was tragically stricken with kidney disease,” says Dr. Kennon. “ I never had to take care of anyone on this level. Suddenly due to medical errors my husband became ill and my life totally changed. New issues surfaced daily, and I realized that there wasn’t anything suitable to address my unique responsibilities as a caregiver. So I decided to take control of my situation and to assist others by sharing what I learned.”

“The most critical issue facing us was how to get access to life-saving prescription medication,” says Dr. Kennon.

Encouraged by her husband, Dr. Kennon wrote her book out of anger and frustration with big pharma, the healthcare industry and the federal government. Her husband is an 88-year-old WWII and Korean War honorably retired African American Army veteran. He enlisted in 1948 and was promised free health care. Instead he became the victim of bait and switch when that promise was broken. The book chronicles their journey to overcome the prior authorization process. Readers learn how this happened and how they fought back.

“Health Care is the number one issue in America,” says Dr. Kennon. “ No one can argue the benefit of low health care costs and having a lot of heath care plans to choose from. But what difference does it make if in your hour of need you don’t get what you thought you paid for. Most people know more about the details of their grocery lists than they do about the fine print in their health insurance plans. And to make matters worse, distractions are being used to keep people ignorant of what they really need to know. That worries me, because I know what this can do to the quality of a person’s life.”

“There are some good health insurance plans out there. However, my book presents strategies to counter the misuse and abuse of the prior authorization process by those using it to further their profit and not patient welfare.”

Her website and blog are designed to empower caregivers by sharing knowledge and encouragement.

“I have had tremendous response,” says Dr. Kennon. “ In fact, my book was profiled in “The ROCKET Newsletter” (Summer 2018), a publication of The ROCKS, Inc. which is the premiere and largest professional military officers’ organization for Army Officers, Warrant Officers and Department of the Army Civilians.”

Patient or Profit: Where is the Love? Is available via the author website (complementary autograph included), and Amazon.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Adah Kennon in an interview with Jim Masters on Monday January 21st at 3 p.m. EST.

Author Jeff Dawson of LDDJ Enterprises to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 / — Some of the best books every written are based on true life stores especially when it resonates so deeply with readers. Writers who have the exceptional ability to touch us so profoundly are truly teaching us life lessons that stay with us for a forever.

Jeff is owner of the top notch publishing company LDDJ Enterprises and the author of several books such as Irving Titans a satire of the Dallas Cowboys of the 90’s, Guinnea Pigs of the 70’s and 80’s a humorous look back at all the new-fangled gadgets we got to test out and the heartfelt memoirs Why did Everything Happen and Love’s True Second Chance.

“When I was fourteen I dabbled in writing and had literally read hundreds of books,” says Jeff. “But it wasn’t until 2010 that I wrote my first book inspired by all my life experiences particularly love and loss.”

Jeff led a relatively unscathed life marrying just out of college and becoming the proud father of three beautiful children. Then he began facing a series of overwhelming misfortunes, from a jarring divorce to a jolting, devastating tragedy unexpectedly losing his partner and father to cancer. Utterly devastated, struggling to understand the heartbreak, life seemed to once again show promise when he was reunited with Debbie his high school sweetheart also divorced and the mother of two teenaged girls, who he hadn’t seen in over thirty years. But fate took another devastating turn when Debbie was diagnosed with breast cancer and after only seven months together his beloved passed away in 2009.

“To come to terms with my anguish I began writing Why did Everything Happen questioning the reason for my tremendous loss,” says Jeff.

Jeff affirms how with fearlessness and sincere unbridled love he and Debbie genuinely enjoyed the short time they had left together. Although the cancer had spread through Debbie’s entire body she wasn’t in a lot of pain till her final week when the disease finally took its toll on her.

“One of the most awe inspiring life lessons I learned is how second chances, like I got with Debbie, are definitely worth taking the risk,” says Jeff. “It’s absolutely fine to discuss previous mistakes but not dwell on them or remain bitter rather embrace a wonderful new beginning.”

What Jeff also discovered was a first-hand account of the emotional trauma a woman undergoes dealing with breast cancer. The fact that Debbie had a mastectomy leaving her with scars did not affect Jeff’s feelings towards her. Their love was more than physical, they were true soul mates.

“We were tremendously lucky to have one another,” says Jeff. “Debbie appeared to me a month after her passing and I can reassure people we will absolutely be reunited with our loved ones in Heaven.”

Jeff affirms that for any man whose girl has breast cancer it’s absolutely critical to be as supportive as possible not with pity but love.

“She simply needs your affection” says Jeff. “You don’t necessarily need to understand what she’s going through but only to love her with all your heart.”

This is especially significant if she has had a mastectomy and Jeff believes if you consider leaving her based on physical attraction then you really never belonged together in the first place.

“Love is worth finding the second time around,” says Jeff. “As long as you are connected you can get through anything.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Jeff Dawson in an interview with Jim Masters on Tuesday January 22nd at 4 p.m. EST.

Creative Startups accepting applications in New Mexico for "Libraries as Launchpads"

Two individuals playing an electronic drum

4 individuals discuss things around a computer

New Mexico entrepreneurs looking to take their idea to action can apply now through February 17th for this free program.

New Mexico libraries are quickly growing their capacity to empower community members, and we recognize the critical role we play as trusted democratic institutions in sustainable economic development.”

— New Mexico State Librarian Eli Guinee

ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 / — Have a Business Idea? Visit Your Library to Get Started!

Beginning this week, startups across southern New Mexico will have access to a new business pre-accelerator program, Libraries as Launchpads, offered by Creative Startups, the globally recognized New Mexico-based business accelerator. Launchpads is a partnership of the New Mexico State Library and Creative Startups and will serve entrepreneurs in nine communities: Lovington, Hobbs, Anthony, Las Cruces, Hatch, Deming, Silver City, Los Lunas, and Socorro. The program aims to highlight public libraries as information hubs for startups and expand the depth of their entrepreneur services while serving over 50 entrepreneurs this year. Applications are open now through Sunday, February 17th.

Today, with digital information easily available, one might – mistakenly – assume libraries are no longer relevant. National data, however, tells a different story. Visitorship to public libraries has risen over the past decade to meet the demands of navigating an increasingly complicated online world. Librarians are experts professionally trained in navigating through vast inventories of facts and fallacies to direct people to accurate and pertinent information. That’s what makes libraries the perfect place for entrepreneurs looking to start or grow a business. Indeed, according to the American Library Association (ALA), 48% of libraries across the US report offering services to small businesses.

“New Mexico libraries” explains New Mexico State Librarian Eli Guinee, “are quickly growing their capacity to empower community members, and we recognize the critical role we play as trusted democratic institutions in sustainable economic development. We want to see more opportunities for our talented young people to stay in New Mexico and raise their families with a high quality of life, and libraries are an important part of that equation.” Libraries are ready to refresh their image, “I like what [Launchpads] did for the profile of our little library,” said one participating librarian. “We want to stand up and say, ‘we’re not quiet anymore!’” said another.
Libraries as Launchpads will transform libraries in to vibrant economic development hubs through:
-Entrepreneurship education: Creative Startups LABS Pre-Accelerator is a 5-week business bootcamp for creative entrepreneurs to be hosted in participating libraries.
-Regional capacity building: Creative Startups Educators Circle trains regional educators on curriculum and pedagogical approach, enabling educators to become a resource for entrepreneurs in their communities.
-Collections development: The New Mexico State Library is assessing current collections and working to buildout business resources available in libraries across the state. A reference interview will be created for librarians to guide entrepreneurs to the resources they need.

Of the 19 entrepreneurs who went through the pilot program in 2018, 94% reported an increase in access to the startup resources needed to take the next step. Participants also saw substantial gains in knowledge with increase from 55% to 93% of participants reporting an average of level 3 or higher (on a scale ranging from 1:Never Heard of it, to 5:Expert) in all business knowledge areas. “This is an incredible program. The concepts I learned have, already in just weeks, improved the way I am running my business,” expressed a Libraries as Launchpads alum..

Entrepreneurs with an idea they want to bring to life, a prototype they want to take to market, or a small business they want to grow are all invited to apply! Applications are open now through Sunday, February 17th.
Participating NM libraries include: Anthony, Deming, Hatch, Hobbs, Las Cruces, Los Lunas, Lovington, Silver City, and Socorro.

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.

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!
Check out the article on The New York Times website.
