L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers & Illustrators of the Future volume 36

Award-winning Dominica singer-songwriter, Michele Henderson, to open the L. Ron Hubbard Achievement Awards Ceremony in Hollywood on Friday, April 3.

Art is the highest level of communication there is on this planet…. L. Ron Hubbard knew this and made it a priority to recognize and reward artists and their work.”

— Michele Henderson

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Organizers of the annual L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Achievement Awards announced that award-winning singer-songwriter hailing from Dominica, Michele Henderson, will be opening the evening’s ceremony at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood on Friday, April 3.

Henderson has had a very distinguished musical career in both jazz and calypso. She has shared billing with Green Day and the Foo Fighters at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, headlined jazz festivals in Trinidad and Virgin Gorda, and has shared the stage with Taylor Dayne, Chick Corea, and Doug E. Fresh.

She is the mother of two, director of two local businesses, board member of Crime Stoppers Dominica, spokesperson for the Home at Heart Foundation, and an officially appointed Goodwill Ambassador to Dominica.

When asked to perform after showing her the cover of Writers of the Future Volume 36, Henderson immediately responded, “I am so very excited and honored to have been invited to participate in the Gala and Award ceremony.” Already being familiar with the Contests and Mr. Hubbard’s contributions to the arts, she continued, “As an artist myself I am well aware of the value of art; its incredible worth to society. Art is the highest level of communication there is on this planet. It's the language every human being can understand and communicate with. Without it, life is dull and meaningless. L. Ron Hubbard knew this and made it a priority to recognize and reward artists and their work. His efforts inspire us to continue being the light of the world.” She concluded, “I am just thrilled to have the opportunity to help continue this work.”

As the top names in the science fiction and fantasy world, Contest judges will be on hand to present the annual awards to this year’s writer and illustrator winners as well as the grand prize winner for each contest.

Those attending will include Writers of the Future Contest judges Kevin J. Anderson, Doug Beason, Gregory Benford, David Farland, Eric Flint, Brian Herbert, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Nancy Kress, Todd McCaffrey, Rebecca Moesta, Larry Niven, Jody Lynn Nye, Nnedi Okorafor, Tim Powers, and Robert J. Sawyer. An equally impressive roster of Illustrators of the Future Contest judges including Echo and Lazarus Chernik, Ciruelo, Craig Elliott, Val Lakey Lindahn, Sergey Poyarkov, Rob Prior, and Dan dos Santos will also be on hand.

Writers of the Future is a writing contest initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1984 as a means of providing a helping hand to aspiring writers on how to become an author. Due to the immense success of the writing contest, a sister competition, Illustrators of the Future, was created.

The annual illustrator and short story contests draw entrants from around the globe and are free to enter. Winners retain full rights to their work and each is given cash awards. Grand prize winners receive an additional $5,000. The Contest flies out all winners to Los Angeles for an expense-paid, week-long workshop of writing tips and how-to advice given by Contest judges and culminates in a black-tie gala awards event.

Dr. Thomas Harford Explains Why Stories Are Important to Your Public Speaking

Dr. Thomas Harford

COLUMBIA, NY, UNITED STATES, March 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Everyone has a story. Even those who don’t think they have a story – they have a story somewhere in them, waiting to be discovered. In this article, Dr. Thomas Harford discusses why stories are so important to public speakers and why every speech should have a narrative structure.

To tell stories is to be human, Dr. Thomas Harford begins. Nothing is quite as powerful as a well-told story for getting your message across.

Oral communication is one of the greatest life skills to have, Dr. Thomas Harford says. At his consulting company, Mind-Revise, LLC, Dr. Tom Harford helps clients master all parts of public speaking including anxiety reduction, voice enhancement, presentations, speech preparation, and voice pitch to name a few. “Part of communicating a great speech,” he says, ”is learning the fine art of storytelling.”

“When you’re speaking to an audience,” Dr. Thomas Harford begins, “whether large or small, your goal is to convey a message.” No matter if you are speaking to a large crowd with a goal to influence people, or speaking in a conference room to pass along an idea to your colleagues, or even speaking on the phone hoping to sell an idea to someone, you’re speaking to convey some kind of a message. “Stories are simply our natural way to convey meaning and get our messages across,” he says.

We respond to stories for several reasons, Dr. Tom Harford says. “Stories are naturally powerful. Narrative gives an audience a means of relation, of empathy. And we also know when a story doesn’t ring true, which is why a deep understanding of narrative structure is so important and effective.”

Dr. Thomas Harford says the best stories will have an immediate appeal that really connects the speaker to the audience. “These are stories that strategically convey meaning,” he adds. Many of the ways to add veracity to your speeches have to do with the way the speech is presented, such as specifically chosen words and tone of voice, but stories play a big part in making an emotional appeal to your audience also, he says.

Another important reason you want to tell a story is that you want people to remember your speech. “Facts and figures are great,” Dr. Tom Harford points out, “but people don’t usually remember facts and figures. A narrative beats a Powerpoint everytime.” This is because stories provide context for facts and figures. If your story is compelling enough and has enough detail, the audience won’t have any problem internalizing the salient points.

We all love a good story because we’re human, he says, and we all want to relate. Since stories make us more relatable and more human to our audience, it’s important to know how to craft your story for maximum impact. “Understanding narrative structure is key. That’s another story for another day,” he adds with a smile.

Dr. Thomas Harford developed an early interest in theater as a teen and worked professionally in theater and dance before returning to academic studies, ultimately earning a Ph.D. in English Literature. Tom Harford continued to work in higher education as both a teacher and administrator, eventually starting his own consulting practice, Mind-Revise, LLC, located in New York, NY which specializes in learning solutions for businesses, organizations and individuals.

On a light blue background, the front cover shows the heads of 8 different animal babies -- including an elephant, bat, giraffe, kangaroo, polar bear, whale, cougar, and squirrel -- peering in from the edges, surrounding a burst of water shooting from the

The front cover of This Is How I Grow displays three of the awards this title was awarded before its publication: the Tillywig Brain Child award, Creative Child Magazine’s Book of the Year award, and the first place Feathered Quill Book Award.

A fan of two pages: on the left is a first page from the book's elephant section, showing an elephant mother and calf walking towards the viewer; on the left is a page from the back explaining environmental details of the first's illustrations, including a sloth bear.

Explore an Asian elephant calf’s environment, then flip to the back to learn more about the hidden details of the environment drawn by debut illustrator Wesley Davies.

New Book Lies at the Intersection of Early Science Education and Attachment Parenting

Kids find the wide-ranging skills these animals must quickly develop in order to survive to be all the more compelling for their, and our, shared classification as mammals.”

— Dan Levy, Tillywig awards chair

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Publisher Science Naturally is thrilled to announce a new addition to their collection of animal books for young children, available for purchase everywhere this Tuesday, March 3. More than a simple scientific introduction, the animal stories in This Is How I Grow celebrate those things that unite all mammals, fostering empathy, kindness, and compassion in their young readers.

The newest book in the Beginnings collection, This Is How I Grow, introduces readers to eight different animal ambassadors from habitats across the globe. In two-page vignettes, each mammal baby soliloquizes on their birth, nursing, and weaning experiences before exploring the skills they must learn from their mother and others in their community in order to achieve independence. This is an engaging approach for children ages 7-10 who are just starting to explore what it means for them to be “all grown up.”

All newborn mammals—whether they have hooves, flippers, paws, claws, or wings—rely on mother’s milk to help them grow. This book conveys that childhood is the period of time where mammals rely on their family and community to survive. This time together allows mammals to create strong bonds and loving relationships that readers young and old will recognize from their own lives.

This Is How I Grow just received the 2020 Book of the Year award from Creative Child Magazine and has also won a Tillywig Brain Child award. Tillywig awards chair Dan Levy celebrates the first-person narrative that “deeply draws young readers in.” He continues, “verbal gems and lush, lifelike illustrations infuse the writing with warmth and personality. Kids find the wide-ranging skills these animals must quickly develop in order to survive to be all the more compelling for their, and our, shared classification as mammals.”

The beautiful art from debut illustrator Wesley Davies fosters this sense of connection while imparting important information about each animal’s habitat, community, size, and more. These expansive, detailed illustrations infuse the book with a sense of scientific authority. Readers could get lost exploring the lush artwork overflowing with scientifically accurate flora and fauna from each animal’s habitat. In the back of the book, readers find questions that encourage them to delve more deeply into the visual text. These reference pages allow parents and educators to address the questions each little scientist is likely to have as they turn through the book.

This Is How I Grow explores the incredible variety of skills baby mammals must learn in order to survive and thrive. From bats learning how to fly to elephants gaining control of their trunks, animal families help their young develop the tools they need to hunt, forage, or scavenge.

This introduction to the mammal world is an easy way to introduce young children to STEM. Peggy Ashbrook, an early childhood science teacher, columnist, and author of Science Learning in the Early Years and Science Is Simple, writes, “With this beautifully illustrated introductory book, children will learn that mammals across the globe have ways of caring for their babies, a Disciplinary Core Idea of the NGSS (LS1B). The questions about each species that follow the text are exactly what children might ask after reading This Is How I Grow and the answers are appropriate for children as young as two while inspiring elementary students to use the referenced sources to learn more.”

An extensive Teacher’s Guide, available for free download at the publisher’s website, provides further information, hands-on activities, and articulations to the Next Generation Science Standards, making this book an invaluable early childhood science resource.

Author Dia L. Michels is an award-winning science and parenting writer who has authored or edited over a dozen books for both children and adults. This is her fourth book exploring science topics through animal stories. Studying mammals has helped her appreciate the simplicity and importance of attachment parenting and breastfeeding. The mother of three grown children, she lives in Washington D.C., where she shares her home with three cats and a dog.

Wesley Davies is an artist from New England who specializes in illustration and comic art. He received a Bachelor of Arts in anthropology from Kenyon College, earning Phi Beta Kappa honors, and has been making art all his life. He provided spot drawings for Platypus Media’s 2018 publication Babies Nurse. This book marks his debut as a children’s book illustrator.

Author and Retired Aerospace Engineer Allan J. McDonald to be Featured on Close Up Radio

OGDEN, UTAH, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — On a cold January morning in 1986, NASA launched the Space Shuttle Challenger. What happened next is one of the great American tragedies: an explosion in the sky. All seven crew members on board, including schoolteacher Sharon Christa McAuliffe, were killed.

What many people don’t know about Challenger is how easily it could have been prevented.

Retired aerospace engineer Allan J. McDonald is the author of Truth, Lies, and O-rings: Inside the Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster, which recounts McDonald’s experiences at on that fateful day and examines the role of ethics in leadership.

“There have been several books written about Challenger, none by anybody involved in the event,” says McDonald. “I decided that an accurate historical record of what really happened was important.”

Major NASA contractors must have a representative onsite for all space shuttle launches. These individuals are responsible for resolving problems and supporting the launch. As the director of the Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Motor Project, McDonald served in this role for the engineering contractor Morton Thiokol.

It was 18 degrees Fahrenheit in Florida the night before the Challenger launch: a bad forecast. McDonald was concerned such below-freezing temperatures might impact the integrity of the solid rockets' O-rings, and the boosters would not operate properly in those temperatures.

According to the vice president of engineering, the lowest recommended temperature for a safe launch was 53 degrees.

“The engineers went through methodical presentation that evening,” recalls McDonald. “We assumed at that point they would just scrub it for another day and wait for warmer weather.”

Instead, NASA challenged the basis for that recommendation, claiming the data was inconclusive.

Engineer Bob Ebeling told his wife that night Challenger would blow up.

“There was a mechanical failure and a failure in the management system,” says McDonald. “They made the decision to launch and it proved to be the wrong decision.”

McDonald would later testify before the Rogers Commission, a presidential commission formed to investigate the accident. As he sought to draw attention to the real reasons behind the disaster, McDonald was singled out for retribution by his employer, until the commission’s chairman William Rogers personally intervened. Today, McDonald is the only American ever to be reinstated to his job by an act of Congress.

As a result of his efforts, McDonald would be instrumental in implementing the sweeping changes that markedly improved the safety of future missions.

“Leadership is about making tough decisions, it's lonely and difficult and sometimes impossible,” says McDonald. “That's why a more conservative approach is probably the wisest course. There's always another day.”

Close Up Radio will feature Allan J. McDonald in an interview with Jim Masters on March 4th at 3pm EDT

New How-to Guide for Voters Helps Evaluate Ethics of Candidates Running for Political Office

Logo for Markkula Center for Applied Ethics

Markkula Center for Applied Ethics forms new Journalism and Media Ethics Council to focus on misinformation and disinformation

Our process for electing public officials is born out of the ethical ideal of creating an informed electorate. This resource can lead that effort.”

— Don Heider, executive director, Markkula Center for Applied Ethics

SANTA CLARA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Although public service is a noble calling, the act itself is not always so noble. In response, the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University today announced a new resource, Voting for Ethics, a non-partisan, how-to guide designed to help the U.S. voting public identify the hallmarks of an ethical candidate and cast a more informed vote—whether for their local school board or the president of the United States of America.

“Our process for electing public officials is born out of the ethical ideal of creating an informed electorate,” said Don Heider, executive director, Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. “This resource can lead that effort.”

The how-to guide, available for free download at: www.scu.edu/voting-for-ethics, covers issues including examples of the classic dirty tricks most often seen in politics, hallmarks of ethical campaign promises, and tips to identify unethical fundraising practices.

“’Voting for Ethics’ will become the standard for ethical political practice for years to come,” said Tom Campbell, former five-term congressman from Silicon Valley. “Candidates will be asked to subscribe to the principles announced in the book, because they are clear, practical, and powerful guides to stay on the right side of ethical behavior.”

About the Author
Hana Callaghan was the director of the Center’s Government Ethics Program. She passed away in January of 2020 just after completing “Voting for Ethics.” She had a background in law, government, and politics. She worked in private practice as a corporate litigator, for a member of the U.S. House of Representatives as a senior congressional aide, and as a political consultant managing statewide political campaigns.

About the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics
Founded in 1986 with a seed grant and initial endowment from Linda and A.C. “Mike” Markkula Jr., the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University brings the traditions of ethical thinking to bear on real world problems. Beyond a full range of programs for the SCU community, the Center also serves professionals in fields from business to health care, from government to the social sector, providing innovative approaches to problems from fake news to privacy protection. Through its website and international collaborations, the Center brings ethical decision-making resources to a global audience. For more information: www.scu.edu/ethics/.

NAVY SEAL EDDIE GALLAGHER TO RELEASE TELL-ALL BOOK

Andrea and Eddie Gallagher

Controversial Military Figure Profiled Sunday March 1st on '60 Minutes'

I’m writing the book so the world can hear exactly what happened in Mosul and how this entire ordeal occurred. I look forward to people finally discovering the truth”

— Eddie Gallagher, Retired Navy SEAL Chief

WASHINGTON DC , UNITED STATES , March 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Retired Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher will reveal the full details of the circumstances leading to accusations of war crimes in a forthcoming tell-all book.

“The Man in the Arena: From Fighting ISIS to Fighting for his Freedom—A Navy SEAL’s Battle to Clear His Name” is scheduled for release this summer. The exact release date is dependent upon a mandatory Department of Defense review.

Gallagher was profiled on "60 Minutes" Sunday, March 1st in an extensive interview with CBS TV’s National Security Correspondent and retired Naval officer David Martin.

Gallagher made news this past summer when President Trump intervened in his war crimes case, moving him out of prison for less-restrictive pretrial confinement and ultimately stepping in to have his rank restored and allowing him to keep the coveted SEAL Trident pin after his trial. The Secretary of the Navy was later fired by the president for his handling of Gallagher’s case.

Gallagher had returned to the U.S. after his 2017 Mosul, Iraq deployment when other SEALs in his platoon began to complain about his leadership style. They subsequently accused him of murdering a young girl, an old man, and a severely-wounded ISIS fighter who had been captured after a fierce firefight. Gallagher was arrested and spent nine months in pretrial confinement.

Chief Gallagher was ultimately found innocent on all charges except one, taking a photograph with an enemy corpse. During the trial, another medic in his SEAL platoon, Corey Scott, admitted on the stand that he had killed the ISIS fighter by covering his breathing tube instead of turning him over to Iraqi forces, who he feared would torture the young fighter.

Gallagher is writing the book with his wife, Andrea, who regularly appeared on television and developed a strong online presence to help bring attention to her husband’s plight during his incarceration. It is being published by Washington, DC-based Ballast Books.

“The prosecution was able to put on their case during trial, which was so filled with lies and corruption that my defense team merely had to expose those flaws for a jury of my peers to find me innocent. I’ve done some select interviews, including “60 Minutes”, but most are edited and short form. I’m writing the book so the world can hear exactly what happened in Mosul and how this entire ordeal occurred. I look forward to people finally discovering the truth,” said Gallagher.
