New Book 'FIGHTBACK' Details How Europe Can Lead The Way To Digitalization

“Fightback: How to win in the digital economy with platforms, ventures and entrepreneurs”


“A must-read for everyone working in a traditional industry”: Praise for new book launched during World Economic Forum by Felix Staeritz and Simon Torrance

DAVOS, SWITZERLAND, AND BERLIN, GERMANY, January 22, 2020 / — Digitalization is the biggest disruption for business as usual at any major corporation. Trusted mindsets and existing business models are collapsing, corporations are struggling to react to the Fourth Industrial Revolution by risking too little transforming too slowly – particularly in Europe. This is the starting point of the exciting new book “Fightback: How to win in the digital economy with platforms, ventures and entrepreneurs” to be published in the U.S. and across the EU as well as the UK on January 23rd 2020.

“It’s time to wake up, act and really shape digital change. We need to take up responsibility for digitalization, and this is Europe’s opportunity to be at the center stage of this change,” says corporate venture builder and tech entrepreneur Felix Staeritz, the principal author, along with digital platform expert Simon Torrance.

“Fightback” has already received praise from policy and business thought-leaders, such as Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum Founder & Executive Chairman: “Fightback showcases how to embrace digitalization and how to overcome disruption.” And Gisbert Ruehl CEO of Kloeckner & Co., said: “ A must-read for everyone working in a traditional industry.”

A serial entrepreneur, digital growth expert and founder of several startups and platforms, Felix Staeritz is also a member of the World Economic Forum’s Digital Leaders board and CEO of FoundersLane, a corporate venture builder. Co-author Simon Torrance, one of the world's leading experts on business model transformation, specializing in platform strategy and digital ventures, and is a member of the World Economic Forum’s executive working group on Digital Platforms and Ecosystems. The foreword has been written by Martina Larkin, the Head of Regional Strategies – Europe and Eurasia at the World Economic Forum.

The 286 pages strong “Fightback” delivers a different, fresh perspective and a convincing blueprint that will enable business leaders to use the digital economy to their advantage by leveraging three powerful, but little understood, strategic tools – platform business models, digital ventures and the special skills of tech entrepreneurs. Based on a sophisticated analysis, the book is a hands-on playbook for corporate renewal in an age of digitalization and makes a convincing case for Europe leading the way in changing minds and business around the world.

The book will be launched this Thursday, January 23rd, during the 2020 World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting week and its headline topic “Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World”, which touches on the very dissues discussed in “Fightback”: How to help businesses create the models, essential, to remain competitive as the Fourth Industrial Revolution unfolds, in a world driven by exponential technological change, as well as increasing expectations from stakeholders, on all sides.

As for digitalization, the book claims, the tipping point has already occurred, but the authors make the case for reasons to be cheerful. But it’s easy to get it wrong, as it’s not enough to simply digitize existing operational processes, as outdated trading practices are failing to have an impact, yet established corporations remain hesitant to embrace change and challenge this deep-rooted inertia. The “magic of the platform”, as the authors call it, is at the core of this radically new approach, resulting in entrepreneurial co-creation. Last but not least, the authors explain how to create a framework for change in a company and present five hands-on steps on how to renew.

An excellent combination of deep analysis based on the latest research and hands-on strategies for action-driven operations, the book addresses these challenges:
•That is the real driving force behind the new digital business models that are disrupting every industry?
•What are the key elements of adapting and/or competing with them?
•How do globally leading corporations react by changing their approach and strategies?
•What are the essential tools for a new approach, i.e. allocation of capital to digital investments, attracting young entrepreneurial talents, how do they function?
•How to create the most effective organizational set-up to take advantage of new high margin digital growth opportunities fast and how to create a portfolio of digital ventures that could become more valuable than the core business.
•Understand how to rapidly create new high growth/high margin digital ventures in practice.

The book brings together a unique set of dynamic entrepreneurs, hands-on practitioners with consulting experience with leading companies, CEOs of top global corporations, and some of the world’s top digital thought-leaders, as well as scholars of various areas of expertise:

Klaus Schwab (Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum), Linda Hill (Wallace Brett Donham Professor, Harvard Business School), Gisbert Ruehl (CEO Kloeckner), Nicolas Brusson – Co-Founder & CEO, BlaBlaCar), Ida Tin (Co-Founder & CEO, Clue), Gunnar Groebler (Senior Vice President, Business Area Wind, Vattenfall), Markus Fuhrmann (Co-Founder, Delivery Hero), Michael G Jacobides – Sir Donald Gordon Chair of Entrepreneurship, London Business School), Peter Borchers (Former CEO Allianz X, Founder hub:raum, global incubator of Deutsche Telekom), Karthik Suri (SVP & COO, GE Digital), to name but a few.

The book is part of an ongoing movement of some of the world's leading entrepreneurs, corporate execs, academics and policy makers who are driving the next wave of innovation and growth to advance Europe digitally. The book includes the best case studies, insights and learnings from their experiences of disruptive innovation and business model transformation.

Certified Life Coach Releases New Book "What's Your Y"- 40 Days to finding your purpose

What’s Your Y, 40-Day Devotional


Debbie LeSean launched her book entitled “What’s Your Y” to guide women on finding who they are, what’s their purpose in life, and turning purpose into profit.

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, U.S.A., January 22, 2020 / — Debbie LeSean believes “Even the most talented athletes taking advantage of their natural gifts can only go so far. Without other people helping and guiding them, they won’t achieve success. The coach helps them to develop strategy, focus on the detail, and provide control and discipline. A coach enhances talent.

Coach Debbie’s book is the manifestation of what she said above. She provides her coaching and guidance through this book, so the reader can birth their purpose.

“What’s Your Y” is a devotional and journal. The reader will follow 40 days of prompts and write out their thoughts as they uncover their purpose. Debbie’s goal is to help readers understand that operating in your purpose leads to profit as written in Proverbs 14:23. Growing up in the Bronx, N.Y., being a teen mom, marrying to young and divorcing twice, Debbie hit a patch in life where she was unsure of her purpose. She knew that God called her to do more than raise kids and work at a job she disliked.

Coach Debbie uses this book to open the reader’s mind to life beyond survival mode.

“What’s Your Y” is designed to be able to make the reader actively do something about their life. Using a practical business and spiritual application, the journey to find the solution is done in a structured way. Coach Debbie uses this book to help readers understand their daily thoughts and experiences are a tool for reflection and growth.

Allowing unconditional love to radiate from your heart is all you need to create the military commander that helps you win every battle of life.”

— Tony J. Selimi

LONDON, LONDON, CITY OF, UNITED KINGDOM, January 22, 2020 / — We are customed to live our lives according to what others think of us. With passing time, we become people pleasers and start to live our lives within the boundaries of other people’s expectations of you.

Episode One: The Truth Hurts

In a fast-paced Facebook/Instagram/Twitter world everyone thinks Joel has made it. But when he invites human behaviour expert Tony J. Selimi to be his Life Coach, a journey of self-discovery reveals shocking truths about his behavioural patterns, leading to a life-transforming decision that changes the course of his and his family’s life.

The protagonist, Joel amid midlife crisis, through Selimi's skilful life coaching techniques, he starts to get underneath the emotions to find the real problem so that he can overcome alcohol addictions, depression, diffuse relationship conflicts, address stress coming from being a business owner with ease and build the happiness and prosperity he so deeply craves.

The documentary shows people how to see the unseen in ways they didn’t know possible, amplify people's awareness and ultimately as they acknowledge their inner truth to help them take decisive action so they too can break free from addictions, fears, and the cocoon that is stopping them from living a fulfilled life.

Author Rory McFarlan Offers Debut Contemporary Fiction Novel Free on January 21st

Heartbreaking contemporary fiction novel tells the story of a gay Mormon finding a place in his religious community while looking for love.

An amazing read for religious and non-religious alike. Well written with… an empowering message of love and compassion.”

— Sahreth Bowden – A Goodreads Reviewer

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED_STATES, January 21, 2020 / — The Kindle Edition is FREE to download until midnight on January 21st, 2020.

"Nephi’s Courage" is a contemporary fiction novel exploring a man’s attempt to reconcile his Mormon faith with is sexual orientation. He meets resistance from LDS church leaders and members of the LGBTQ community on his journey of self-discovery while he looks for love.

“Nephi, as your Bishop, I must tell you that those prayers are wasted. God’s plan permits marriage between one man and one woman. He declared it in the Proclamation to the World on the Family. It is clear. It is a doctrine that will not change.”
“The strongest bonds don’t happen all at once. We form them over hundreds of shared moments. Those bonds are strengthened as people rely on each other through trials.”
“There are others like me. Others who are gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual, aro, ace, or otherwise queer. All of us feel like misfits and outcasts in the church. We don’t know where, or if we belong. It feels like there is no place for us. We are stuck between two worlds, a Mormon world that we love, and a queer world inherent to our nature.”

A heart-rending contemporary fiction novel. Nephi Willard is a practicing Mormon who loves God and his church. He grew up in Happy Valley, the center of LDS life in Utah, and faithfully served a mission.

The perfect Mormon life would be his, if not for the fact that Nephi is gay, putting him at odds with his church leaders. No matter how well Nephi obeys the commandments, he doesn’t seem to fit in at church, and his desire to follow the Mormon rules makes it difficult to fit in with the gay community.

While he tries to reconcile his Mormon side with his gay side, Nephi navigates two worlds in a struggle to understand himself. When new friends introduce him to possibilities he never imagined, he must decide whether to embrace his nature or his faith.

Kelly Hyman Lawyer Discusses Trump Impeachment Inquiry on “America This Week With Eric Bolling” on ABC.

Attorney Kelly Hyman

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2020 / — Lawyer Kelly Hyman of The Hyman Law Firm, P.A., a Democrat commentary and television legal analyst appeared on “America This Week with Eric Bolling recently. She was joined by Emma Meshell, an analyst for Young Americans for Liberty. The women discussed with host Eric bolling a range of topics surrounding Trump and the impeachment inquiries.
Host Eric Bolling kicked off the discussion by asking lawyer Kelly Hyman about her new book, “Top 10 Reasons to Dump Trump in 2020.” The book, available now, discusses 10 of the multiple reasons Kelly Hyman says Trump should not be re-elected. These include his “constant lying,” human rights abuses, and the impact of his policies on the already-vulnerable environment.

Bolling then asked Emma Meshell to outline three reasons to keep Trump in 2020. As a Libertarian, Meshell said she has her qualms with Trump as well, including tariffs, which she said are a “tax on American citizens.” However, she said she sees many positives in his presidency, including an improved economy and an increase in blue-collar jobs.
Meshell and Hyman also discussed with Bolling the economy.

The conversation then turned to the impeachment inquiry. Bolling asked Meshell for her thoughts on the investigation and whether the Democrats could be trusted to bring forth an impartial inquiry and vote. “I’m hesitant to say I trust any politician ever,” Meshell replied, before saying she believes both Republicans and Democrats are “playing to their audience” to assure the public they are doing their jobs. Kelly Hyman chimed in to say she believes Democrats are “playing fair” in the investigation. Bolling disagreed, questioning the fairness of Democrats’ tactics, such as holding sessions behind closed doors. Hyman countered by noting that certain Republican representatives were present in those sessions along with the Democrats and that closed sessions, without the disturbance of the media, are common on The Hill.

Dark energy and universal acceleration

Image logo

Claiming that there is a natural universal acceleration that may not require the need for dark energy.

TAMWORTH, STAFFORDSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, January 21, 2020 / — Universal acceleration without dark energy

Simon JB: Author of Point Zero: Available on Amazon and Kindle with a release date of 23rd January 2020, claims that there is a natural universal acceleration that may not require the need for dark energy.
This isn’t universal expansion, but universal acceleration.

There’s no claim that dark energy doesn’t exist, but that the current cosmological model doesn’t take into account the universes natural acceleration.

If we ask ourselves what dark energy is, we have to answer that we don't know. It's theoretical. A postulated form of energy designed to account for the universe not just expanding, but accelerating. It's a theoretical force, hypothesized to explain how galaxies can physically accelerate away from each other.

Yet two objects moving at a constant velocity can still accelerate away from each other. The objects themselves don’t increase or decrease in speed, but they still accelerate away from each other.

To show the universes natural acceleration in a simple scenario, we have two drawings of cars travelling at a constant velocity away from a single point.

In fig a, there is no acceleration. Both cars are travelling at 30 kph, and both cars start their journey at the same time, from the same distance away from point zero. Column ‘B’ shows the increased distance between the two cars remains a constant 259 metres every minute. There is no acceleration between the two cars.

In fig b, we can see how natural acceleration between two bodies work. Both cars are travelling at 30 kph, and both cars started their journey at the same time, but, not from the same distance away from point zero. Everything that’s happening in fig a, is happening in fig b, except the starting points of the cars. In this case, the results in column ‘B’ show that even though both cars are travelling at a constant velocity, the distance between the cars increases minute after minute. The cars are accelerating away from each other even though they are not increasing their speed.

Regardless of the velocities of the cars, or the angle at point zero, or even if both cars are travelling at different velocities, the results remain consistent, only showing two possible outcomes:
• The cars show no acceleration from each other if they leave point zero at exactly the same time.
• The cars accelerate away from each other, in any instance where they leave point zero at different times.

Applying this principle to the heavens is relatively simple providing we have the position of point zero, and the stars velocities. What’s important here is that it’s not a star’s velocity in relation to our observations, but the stars velocity from point zero. There are four images by way of explanation which can be found at

Having three measurements of each triangle enables us to see what the natural universal acceleration is by entering the figures into a ‘galaxy calculator, available at The calculator comprises of three sheets:
1. How to use: Explaining how to input data and change variables.
2. Sheet 1: Where you input figures and see the results.
3. Data: Various scenarios showing results of past scenarios.

We are not claiming that dark energy doesn’t exist, but that the universes natural acceleration must be taken into account in order to more accurately measure the Hubble constant and the need for dark energy theories.

It’s not about how fast we perceive a galaxy accelerating away from us, but about the galaxy’s velocity and direction of travel from point zero.

Sal Liccardo's new book details San Jose blind woman's struggle against Johnson & Johnson

Sal Liccardo, author of Her Right To Know

Her Right To Know, available now at Amazon

Sal, with Michelle and Dennis Ahearn, will be at 1960 The Alameda | San Jose, CA 95126


Every human being has the right to know of any potential serious harm to their body from any product they consume whether prescription drugs, medical devices, or food for the table.”

— Sal Liccardo

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2020 / — 50 years ago, one of the most admired companies in America was selling a product that was used enthusiastically and life-changing for millions of women- even though it knew the product posed a significant danger of blood clots, blindness and even death for up to 20% of its users.

The company was Johnson & Johnson and the product was Ortho-Novum, one of the most popular birth control pills in the United States in the 1960s. A new book, Her Right to Know, by retired San Jose attorney Sal Liccardo tells the story of his clients Dennis and Michelle Ahearn, who went blind at age 30 after taking Ortho-Novum, and their seven-year lawsuit to get Johnson & Johnson to begin warning women that potentially dangerous blood clots were a possible side effect of taking “The Pill.”

“Because of Michelle and Dennis Ahearn’s courage and persistence, pharmaceutical companies were no longer able to keep women in the dark about the possible side effects of 'The Pill'." said Liccardo. “Every human being has the right to know of any potential serious harm to their body from any product they consume whether prescription drugs, medical devices, or food for the table. No industry has the right to take that decision away from us, particularly Big Pharma.”

Michelle Ahearn was a mother of three who had been taking Ortho-Novum for two years when in February 1969, she came down with a headache that quickly progressed to massive swelling of her head and eyes which led to her being hospitalized in the ICU at San Jose’s O’Connor Hospital for more than two weeks. When she was finally released she had permanently lost her sight.

“We were fighting a giant corporation, and they threw out everything they had to beat us. It was a David and Goliath story,” said Ahearn.

In Her Right To Know, Liccardo, the father of San Jose’s mayor, tells how his small law firm, at times just him, a fellow lawyer, and one assistant, took on one of the biggest and most admired companies in America.

Her Right to Know is available now from Amazon.
