80Bites 'The Dancers Diet' now on Amazon

80Bites The Dancer’s Diet

How Food Scarcity will Effect Weight Loss

NEW YORK, NY, US, April 8, 2020 / — A modern, yet decades old diet known as 80Bites The Dancers Diet is the solution for our new normal. This program is the antidote for a grossly over-indulging wellness industry which brainwashes ‘dieters’ to restrict complete categories of food while glorifying “superfoods.” In an easy to follow e-book, 80Bites teaches how to “shrink” the stomach container by low quantity eating.

Instead of sitting in front of a TV all day to watch the same Covid-19 news, why not utilize the toolkit in this book to learn how much you consume per day. The Dancers Diet is a scientifically informed diet for losing pounds by learning How Much to Eat. This is not another diet based on manipulating nutrients as in “eat unlimited quantities from Group 1 and only two from Groups B but only eat from Group C if it is raining in Bermuda on a Thursday.” All diets for the past 50 years have convinced the public that nutrient manipulations override quantities. The reason is obvious: Eat less is not “good” for our over-consuming economy. This tenet no longer matters since the economy is a mess like our poor bodies. And even those who are not carrying extra weight will need to learn how to eat less while consuming the same number of calories.

Deborah Wingert, ballet teacher and former Balanchine dancer, explains: “No matter what “diet” …. Keto/ Paleo/ Vegetarian or Vegan, the amount of food consumed is key.” This program with 30 years of results has been previously available from Registered Dieticians and for Pilates Professionals through the PhysicalMind Institute. This e-book will teach how to train your stomach to feel full on less food and why that is the easiest solution. 80Bites is about the physical stomach and hormones. Calories counting represents an over-simplification of a very complicated digestive and endocrinal process. The science is clear: the stomach container shrinks, and your hormones rebalance. This is why, when a person who weighs 450 pounds has stomach reduction surgery, (bariatric surgery), their diabetes disappears in a few days. Though they may still weigh 200 plus pounds too many, their insulin levels have stabilized. The public has been assaulted with dietary manipulations and pseudo-science because this “grows” dieting/exercise businesses. But the ‘wellness’ consumers grow too! Even Intermittent Fasting does not train the stomach—it just confines overeating and often lead to a Binge and Purge cycle. Every diet has failed, people have played Russian roulette by harming their bodies, and none of it works.

In just 12 steps, you learn how to eat—not what. By focusing only on less for one week, you will feel totally different. You eat what you want—not what some Wellness type dictates because she likes it– and gradually your stomach shrinks. You save money. Tune up your stomach muscles and those gluttony based All You Can Eat places will be unappetizing and painful. The link between stomach size and hormone imbalances has been hidden from the public. Cortisol and insulin and now leptin and ghrelin. Our new normal will require eating less—not obsessing over nutrients which are often lacking anyway. In this crisis atmosphere, restrictive diets won’t be possible. Eating sanely can be your salvation for now and the future.

The 80Bites e-book is the solution to the obesity epidemic. Let’s make lemonade from the Covid-19 lemon. At the end of this pandemic, we should have shrunk our bodies and dropped some of the billions of extra pounds that weigh on us. Never has there been a better time to rethink your eating habits from the ground up. 80Bites will be a beacon in that regard. The E-book is 107 pages: 14 TEACHING Videos; Forget Calories … Hormones Rule Book; and Articles to explain why 50% of us are obese.

Author, Timothy T. Williams, Jr. dives deep into what it takes to be an expert analyst of Police Procedure, Use of Force and Wrongful Convictions

Tim Williams, Jr. gives us a lot to think about…For all of us, whether we are in the system or outside observers, this is a thought-provoking journey well worth taking.”

— Earl Thomas, Retired Criminal Prosecutor

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 7, 2020 / — Retired Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Senior Detective Supervisor, Timothy T. Williams, Jr., pulls back the curtain on Use of Force, Police Procedure and Wrongful Convictions in his debut book, A Deep Dive: An Expert Analysis on Police Procedure, Use of Force and Wrongful Convictions. In the book, Williams recounts his experiences with LAPD, and how he applies that knowledge as a Use of Force, Police Procedure and Wrongful Convictions Expert in State and Federal Court involving criminal and civil rights cases across the country.

An over 29-year LAPD veteran, Williams launched his private consultancy practice in 2003, and has provided expert testimony in over 200 cases and analysis of over 1,200 cases, including several landmark cases such as the "Grim Sleeper" death penalty trial in Los Angeles and wrongful conviction cases as the "Englewood Four" out of Chicago, Illinois. Most notably, Williams' expert analysis in the wrongful murder conviction of Kash D. Register helped to lead to the largest reported settlement, at that time, in an individual civil rights case in the history of Los Angeles, totaling $16.7 million in restitution.

"Tim Williams, Jr. gives us a lot to think about from his critical assessments of “the good, the bad and the ugly” of our justice systems today. For all of us, whether we are in the system or outside observers, this is a thought provoking journey well worth taking," says Earl Thomas, Retired Criminal Prosecutor and Former Chief of the Criminal Branch of the Los Angeles City Attorney’ s Office.

Williams has been hired by some of the most recognizable names in law including The Innocence Project, The Cochran Firm, Carl Douglas, Mark Geragos, and Thomas Mesereau. In his book, Williams provides the necessary gems to become a successful trial expert. “As an expert, one has to block out the noise of opinion(s) and analyze the case objectively. As an expert, you owe it to the retaining counsel to give them the good, the bad and the ugly of the case so they can competently represent their client,” states Williams in his debut book.

Author Dr. Mary Theresa Webb to be Featured on Close Up Radio

LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, April 7, 2020 / — Lancaster, PA – In this Election year, President Trump continues to seek approval for his reelection by proving he is the best and wisest in his handling of the coronavirus epidemic. But Jews and American Christians need to be concerned.

Dr. Mary Theresa Webb is the author of Following Jesus: In the Age of Trump.

Dr. Webb says she was inspired to write this book because of her growing concern over Trump’s perceived evangelical support. A Dr. Webb is part of a non-denominational movement known as the Red Letter Christians, who believe Christians should be paying attention to Jesus' words and examples of humility, and dedicated to promoting biblical values such as peace, building strong families, the elimination of poverty, and other important social justice issues.

According to Dr. Webb, Trump’s strong support from some charismatic and Pentecostal Christian leaders comes from their misguided end times beliefs. They have told Trump that he is God’s chosen one, like King Cyrus of Persia in the 6th century BCE, who was king when the Jewish people were in exile in Babylon and who set them free to return to Israel to rebuild the temple.

‘The Bible is about loving God and loving others,” says Dr. Webb. “Historically, Jewish people and Christians have believed in caring for others. They have founded hospitals and hospices.”

Webb’s research into the heretical New Apostolic Reformation and Prosperity Gospel movements, raises an alarm that the self-proclaimed prophets influencing Trump are doing so for their own political purposes. This feeds into Trump’s dangerous malignant narcissistic personality disorder.

Because Dr. Webb has found clergy do not want to discuss controversial divisive political issues, she has designed a program for church groups to help combat the divisiveness and has become a moderator for

“The people who buy my book are usually sympathetic,” Dr. Webb laments. “I want to reach the Trump believers who have allowed the truth to be distorted. I'm always hopeful. If more people have the courage of their convictions and will speak the truth to power, we can make a difference.”

Close Up Radio will feature Dr. Mary Theresa Webb in an interview with Jim Masters on April 9th at 2pm EST.

Louise Clarke of Your Parenting Partner to be Featured on Close Up Radio

WEST VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, April 7, 2020 / — As a parent you can often find yourself caught in never-ending power struggles with your kids. No matter how much you yell, threaten them, give them time outs, even bribe them, nothing seems to work. They refuse to get off their smartphones or tablets, talk back, and just don’t listen. Googling for solutions can further overwhelm you and getting advice from friends and family can leave you even more conflicted. To help you navigate through these challenges you need someone who can objectively and expertly help and guide you to finding the solutions you need.

Louise Clark is an exceptional Parent Coach, podcast host of the 'Parenting In The Thick Of It' Show, founder of Your Parenting Partner, and author of 'Parenting The Modern Teen: Cracking the code to Parenting your teen. The secret to understanding, connecting and communicating with your teen in a disconnected, distracted and digital world'.

“I give parents the practical tools they need to help them better navigate the tough parenting moments we all face,” says Louise. “When parents seek me out, they are often overwhelmed, exhausted and at their wit’s end. With my parenting strategies, I teach parents how to shift their mindset because when they change the way they view the dynamic between them and their kids, and the way they typically show up, react and behave with their kids, it results in their children changing their behavior for the better.”

Although there are lots of well written parenting books out there, the information doesn’t always translate to a parent’s specific challenge, nor give them the all-important HOW they are going to bring about change. This is where working one-on-one with a skilled Parent Coach can really help.

“Since every family is unique, I don’t have a particular “recipe” in my approach. It’s all done on an individual basis, says Louise. “Part of what I do is help parents develop clear-cut strategies and come to the understanding that their kids are often not the problem! For instance, your fourteen-year-old is simply having a teenage moment when they rebel, or your two-year-old is just being a toddler when they throw a tantrum. The bigger problem is how we manage and control ourselves in the face of these challenging behaviors and this is what I work on with parents.”

Blaming our children not only adds to our frustration but triggers a negative chain of events and we can end up “tantrumming” just like our two-year-old or arguing in vain with our 14-year-old, thus creating a vicious never-ending cycle.

It has become Louise’s life purpose to help parents understand how vital it is for parents to invest in their parenting and make it a priority.

“That’s why it’s critical for parents to first examine their own behavior, find ways to remain in control of themselves, and become the best role models for their kids,” says Louise. “Since our kids mimic us and follow our example, our response to them is critical. If we want our children to grow up to be responsible, contributing members of society, able to accept their mistakes, to be generous of spirit, to have strong emotional intelligence, we should practice these things ourselves.”

As a loving mom of three teenage children, Louise knows what it’s like to practice patience and tolerance and her own experience combined with years of training is what ultimately led her to become a Parent Coach.

“I empower parents to change the way they are showing up with their kids because when they do that, magic happens.” says Louise.

Louise helps parents understand the brain science relative to their children’s behavior. Evidence shows that young people’s brains are not fully developed or rewired until the age of 22-25 years old. This can help explain why kids act and behave the way they do and can help parents be more compassionate and have empathy for their children.

“Parents should absolutely practice self-care such as meditation, healthy eating, daily exercise , adequate sleep, be good with their boundaries, get out in nature, get better at saying no to certain things so they can show up less triggered and be cool, calm and connected parents,” says Louise.

Louise has gained national attention with her podcast “Parenting in the Thick of it,” and has recently celebrated her 400th episode.

“Our children are our future,” says Louise. “Times have changed. The old, stale, hierarchical parenting models simply don’t work in today’s fast paced digital world. If they did, parents and kids would not be struggling as much as they are. Don’t we owe it to our children to make every effort to show up the very best version of ourselves and one we can be proud of?”

Close Up Radio will feature Louise Clarke in an interview with Jim Masters on Wednesday April 8th at 1 p.m. EST.

Acclaimed Author, Adrienne Rubin, Praised for Her Memoir About Personal & Professional Growth By Prominent Book Reviewer

Adrienne Rubin, Acclaimed Author.

Diamond and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business

“My book is not just about jewelry and diamonds. It is about ethics, and especially the lack of ethics. Now more than ever people will enjoy reading it.”

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 6, 2020 / — Adrienne Rubin, acclaimed author, is most certainly having a great year so far in 2020 despite the world’s current circumstances. Rubin has been thriving in her career and many people have recognized her talents and efforts. Rubin is the recent winner of the Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best New Memoir – 2020” for her memoir “Diamonds and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business”. In addition, she just received a Members Spotlight in Modern Luxury/Angeleno Magazine for this year’s International Women’s Day on March 8th, 2020. Modern Luxury/Angeleno Magazine’s Group Publisher, Chris Gialanella, recently included Adrienne Rubin and her memoir in his International Women’s Day article section called Women of Influence. To continue such success, Rubin was also featured this year as a “Senior in Action” by Not Born Yesterday, the premier newspaper and senior publication whose mission is to bring information, education, and inspiration to the older adult community.

Now, Adrienne Rubin is getting further praise and critical acclaim for her memoir, “Diamonds and Scoundrels”. “Diamond and Scoundrels” is getting high praise from prominent book reviewer and publisher, Donovan’s Bookshelf. Donovan’s Bookshelf praises Rubin’s book for being more than just about jewelry. They praise Rubin for delving deeper into her personal story and looking at her personal life instead of just focusing on the jewelry business. “My book is not just about jewelry and diamonds. It is about ethics, and especially the lack of ethics. Now more than ever people will enjoy reading it,” states Rubin. Donovan’s Bookshelf recognizes the true impact Rubin’s memoir has and you can see their full review below:

Donovan’s Bookshelf
Review of Diamonds and Scoundrels

Diamonds and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business comes from the unusual perspective of a female who, in the 1970s, enters a business world largely dominated by men. Adrienne Rubin was introduced to jewelry sales through her relationship with a man, but persevered through the decades, learning not only about jewelry but scams, industry relationships, politics, and more.

From the tricky business of buying and selling diamonds to navigating her father's passing and associations with men, Rubin offers a multifaceted survey of her life both inside and outside of the jewelry business. What makes her memoir/business examination so absorbing is the added value of moral, ethical, and value insights: "Most of the time I was merely finding items to sell, purchasing here and offering them there. I had “an eye” for putting together a new collection every year and figuring out future trends to make a profit. I was good at it. But how could this be my purpose in life? I thought a lot about doctors who save the lives of their patients, lawyers who help their clients find justice, and teachers who inspire and motivate their students. And when it came to the product of jewelry itself, I was baffled by its perceived value. As a gift, it was a symbol of love. As a possession, it had intrinsic value. But I couldn’t imagine why a diamond could cost so much, when other things were so much more useful."

Rubin's observations will resonate with anyone interested in jewelry on more than one level. This reader will find her survey replete with reflections on relationships, family, and the methods of jewelry appraisal, sales, evaluation, and more. Readers might not anticipate the inclusion of family issues as they relate to jewelry inheritance and appraisal, but this, too, pops up in the course of Rubin's expertise and relationships: "How wise is Stan. He didn’t want trouble with Uncle Mike. “No,” he said. “Let Uncle Mike have someone appraise it, along with the antiques and the paintings.” I felt a bit slighted, because my expertise wasn’t taken seriously, and my services were free. But this was Stan’s family, and if he wanted me to stay out of their business, I didn’t really mind."

The life lessons Rubin absorbs from her choices and business lend to a fine autobiography ("This is the lesson. Each of us must live the life we create, according to our actions. Every day we are faced with choices. What we choose and how we react will determine our future. As for me, the money did not change my life."), making Diamonds and Scoundrels of interest to more than a singular arts or memoir audience.

While readers involved with jewelry might be surprised at the inclusion of so much personal insight, these features are what elevates Rubin's experience from a business exposé to a journal of personal and professional growth, setting it apart from other jewelry considerations and placing it in a unique setting of its own.

Diamonds and Scoundrels is highly recommended reading for those who like not just jewelry, but stories of personal and professional growth.
