Stellar reviews for Cose's encyclopedic history of the people and court cases that shaped free speech in the US and made the American Civil Liberties Union.

DEMOCRACY, IF WE CAN KEEP IT” “makes an air-tight case in defense of truth, free speech, and civic activism…This book could not arrive at a more pivotal or necessary moment.”

— Ford Foundation President Darren Walker

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 8, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — This is the book for this American moment.

Celebrated writer Ellis Cose is enjoying some of the best reviews in his distinguished career for his latest and most timely book, “DEMOCRACY, IF WE CAN KEEP IT: The ACLU’s 100-Year Fight for Rights in America.”

Now book editors, reviewers, scholars and fans can schedule a ZOOM interview with Cose to discuss the work.
“DEMOCRACY, IF WE CAN KEEP IT” “makes an air-tight case in defense of truth, free speech, and civic activism’s indispensable importance to democratic society,” said Ford Foundation President Darren Walker. “This book could not arrive at a more pivotal or necessary moment.”

The Library Journal says “DEMOCRACY, IF WE CAN KEEP IT” “is an excellent choice for anyone seeking to understand the ACLU as an organization and for those wanting to explore how the fight for civil liberties has evolved and helped to shape the society we have today.”

Vanita Gupta, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, wrote that “with searing clarity, Ellis Cose explores what happens when, as a society, we coddle the powerful and privileged — even when they enable the forces of hate and pursue anti-democratic goals — at the expense of the people. Cose asks what it means to practice and preserve free speech as some elected leaders contort it as a weapon of suppression. This book is both an indictment of our social and political landscape and a source for inspiration.”

Hired as the ACLU’s first writer in residence with unrestricted access to its archives, Cose produced an intimate history of the ACLU and its critical role in shaping the American ideal of civil liberties. The ACLU played a pivotal role in precedent-setting events including the Scopes Trial, the Scottsboro Boys imprisonment, Japanese American Interment, McCarthyism, the Civil Rights era, Vietnam, Edward Snowden, and now President Donald Trump’s assault on any law limiting his power.

Cose is the author of twelve books, including the award winning “The Rage of a Privileged Class.” He was a Newsweek magazine columnist and editor for seventeen years, and is a former New York Daily News editorial page editor and writer. He has appeared on numerous television programs, including Dateline, ABC News, and Good Morning America.

See his distinguished resume here.

“Early on, Cose expresses the hope that his book will help “to make clear why the defense of civil liberties is the responsibility of all Americans — not just of an organization with civil liberties in its name,” notes The Los Angeles Book Review. “Cose has achieved his goal. The rest of us need to take that responsibility very seriously.”

In an unprecedented move, Cose is available for Zoom interviews with book reviewers, book editors and scholars on July 13 and 14, 2020.

Review copies, or access to a PDF review copy of “DEMOCRACY; IF WE CAN KEEP IT,” are also available.
To schedule an interview, email Clem Richardson at ClemRichardsonWrites@Gmail.com. Interviews are available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Adrienne Rubin, Acclaimed Author, on Why People Aren't Wearing Masks & How Society is Changing from the Pandemic & Riots

Adrienne Rubin, Acclaimed Author

Diamond and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business

By Adrienne Rubin

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, July 7, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When you cross the street, you look both ways. But when you go out in public, are you wearing a mask? The first example protects you. The second protects others, and it might protect you too.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This is The Golden Rule.

Unfortunately the President of the United States has left the decision of mask/no mask up to each of us while choosing not to wear a mask himself. He is frequently tested. He takes hydroxychloroquine and recommends that we do so as well. A recent report says that scientists are currently testing this controversial drug with some positive results in a few cases. But why not wear a mask to prevent the spread of the disease in the first place? Is it so hard to choose responsible behavior?

Why is it that some people have chosen not to wear a mask? They are independent thinkers who refuse to be told what to do. They treasure this freedom, even at the expense of threatening those around them.

The dictionary defines freedom as “the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.” In other words, it is the state of being allowed to do whatever you want to do whenever you want to do it, which would be fine if we each lived alone and apart from the presence of others.

In society, along with freedom, there must come the other side of the coin: Responsibility. How does your freedom affect mine? And today more than ever, how does your not wearing a mask affect me? You ignore science and the fact that your very breath holds a potential invisible weapon. According to what experts are saying, should you come within my air space, you put me in danger. Neither of us can know for certain, but when you confront me without a mask on, my instinct for survival is telling me to flee.

Our responsibility today requires a return to ethical behavior. It requires following suggested guidelines, putting others as a priority, behaving responsibly by valuing the gift of life, and universal good health above all else. It requires giving up feelings of entitlement, replacing them with a heightened sense of the environment and a social consciousness. Ideally, this leads to empathy and more purposeful existence as we anxiously await a return to work and a semblance of life before COVID.

Our new normal lives are different now and slow in returning to what was normal in the past. Many of us expect to return to work in the coming weeks and months, while far fewer expect to resume social activities for the next few months. Many businesses around the world are vanishing, unable to withstand economic pressure. Those with online sales are experiencing double-digit growth, as digital habits are becoming firmly entrenched. Virtual shopping sessions now peak our interest more than ever as we search for items to buy. Luxury sales are on the upswing, since those who can afford it are indulging. Some prices are lower, however, and so even this sector is going to take longer to recover.

Unfortunately, protests in the streets where crowds have gathered without social distancing have exacerbated the problem and caused the disease to take hold. In many parts of the United States, the situation is even worse than in March, and indeed, there is an even greater risk that COVID will take over to such an extent that it cannot be controlled. The American Workers Survey taken over a month ago shows that fewer than half of us this month are expected to book medical appointments, even essential ones. The same would be predicted for grocery shopping in person, eating in restaurants, going into stores to shop, and any activity that involves close contact with others. Who would have thought that as we are now still dealing with the first wave of this disease, too many people are falling ill and dying rather than enjoying warm weather outdoors? Public caution is necessarily high, as people are avoiding community and large social events, only when necessary flying on airplanes, using public transportation, and sending children to school or camp. And when they do these things, they choose responsible behavior by wearing a mask.

It cannot be said too frequently: “We are in this together.” All of us. Please, be kind to others. Put on a mask.

Adrienne Rubin’s memoir, Diamonds and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business is available through www.Amazon.com, www.target.com, www.walmart.com or www.barnesandnoble.com, and can be ordered through your local bookstore.

Dominant Witness Theory Is A Key Factor In Why Suspects Are Wrongfully Identified Says Expert Brian Leslie

Suppression Hearing

Suppression Hearing

How police conduct witness interviews can be a significant factor in why police identify wrong suspects

How Did The Police Present A Photo Line Up To The Witness To Establish A Suspect”

— Brian Leslie

BUFFALO, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 6, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brian Leslie, a forensic expert( www.coerciveinterrogationexpert.com ) in coercive interrogation and interview methods, says "how police approach, question, and vet witnesses can be a critical factor in targeting a specific suspect." Leslie continues by saying that passive witnesses will generally have some doubt of what they observed during a traumatic event and can easily be convinced that what they thought they perceived was actually something else. When the police arrive at a crime scene, Leslie says that the first question to a witness should not be "what did you see?" but "who did you speak to before my arrival?"

Leslie says, "what is critical during an initial interview with a witness is not what questions are asked by the officer, but how the questions are structured." Leslie continues by saying that an example of this would be the officer using suggestive language to steer a witness in a specific direction or providing particular facts of a crime or description of a suspect to a witness that he or she may not have volunteered.

How police conduct witness interviews can be a significant factor in whether inaccurate or biased information is provided. An example of this would be the officer using suggestive language to steer a witness in a specific direction or providing particular facts of a crime to a witness that he or she may not have volunteered.

"The non-vetting of witnesses, coercive questioning, and misidentification can ultimately be responsible for wrongful convictions," says Leslie. For more information please read the complete article at; www.dominantwitnesstheory.com

Pandemic, the Story of Humanity

Pandemic - The story of mankind

Pandemic-the story of mankind

Clearing Obstacles

Open your Life Path

Zsa Zsa Tudos author

Happiness the Missing Factor

The Last Wakeup Call for Survival. It is the last chance to start taking responsibilities and switch to conscious living.

There is greater happiness out there. It is the result of conscious and responsible living. Embrace the world so it can embrace you. Otherwise, you'll walk alone.”

— Zsa Zsa Tudos AKIA Philosophy

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 6, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, the chain of events clearly show the effect of the “everything is interrelated” phenomena. But do we really understand the meaning of this fact?

It means that events and all the creatures connected to Earth come from the same source. Naturally, the end of the matrix is the ever-expanding universe however, it would be safer to stay on the planet right now.
The pandemic is the result of many years in abuse and authoritarian tyranny of earthlings, over their life source, the planet itself. Without mental and emotional intelligence mankind risen above the cycle of nature, and started destroying it, not realising that the score is self-inflicted and suffocates existence ever faster.
The virus led to the self-isolating process, where most people lost the little self-respect they had and allowed the aggression of aimless floating pile up within. Domestic violence, killing, and child abuse became everyday events and the main subjects in media.

The killing of George Floyd came handy to the international frustration, and to the authorities of the manipulating, ruthless and self-appointed leaders, who hide behind the riot against racism, while they wipe countries and their people off the map. And nobody bothers. The end of Palestine didn’t deserve a headline. In Asia, the killing of Muslims is widely acknowledged. The infinite dictatorship forced on European countries such as Hungary and Poland happened just as quietly, giving ways to more racism, hatred, hunger, and frustration.

I am suggesting that to achieve a better life on Earth, every earthling needs to be equally respected. This esteem can only grow from within and spread internationally.

The cycle of nature has to be implemented yet again. It is interesting to see how mankind only kills beautiful, majestic, rare and peaceful animals, on the top of the ladder of nature, while allowing rats, pigeons, stray cats, and many other species to multiply, spread diseases and ruin the environment. Why are we so suicidal?
The confusion and frustration go back to the meddled history given to earthlings, especially that of the various origin stories, representing different belief systems. However, deep down, earthlings remember. They recall a place somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, they started to refer to as Atlantis however, the actual whereabouts and what happened to it is unclear. They talk about Lemuria but again, the rest is a non-logical explanation. Stories about underground civilisations surfaced during the last 20 years or so, and there are gap-filled stories about underwater cities, where everybody is happy and at peace.

The other important factor that leads to oblivion, is that everything is energy. As such, everything is an electro-magnetic power. Everything and everybody. The planet itself has to be in some kind of electro-magnetic harmony, therefore removing or adding to it needs conscious planning and attention. The satellites of many competing companies above, bombarding Earth and its inhabitants with electro-magnetic rays, as they supply countless industries. As “likes attract” some people will be affected and some will not. Now that we have the 5G introduced, and the 42k new satellites added, we do not have much of a chance, for the digital transmitters totally blocking the already densely populated aura, diminishing the possibility of receiving fresh air from the solar system. The residue flairs produced by the money makers, also killing nature as the side effect, therefore oxygen is getting more contaminated and less safe for human consumption.

Due to the ever-growing amount of electro-magnetic residue, the epidemics and pandemics of recent years affect the respiratory system mainly with certain side-effects resulting from the lack of oxygen and clear water. A few years back, when the SEO of Nestle announced it to the world that all consumable water supply should come through them, for people have no right to the water under the ground, even if it is in their own back garden, not many of could see it becoming reality so soon.

The COVID19 pandemic is not an organic virus, therefore it cannot be treated with a vaccine. It seems to pick up people randomly. However, without cleaning up our act we are on the road towards the slow death we inflicted on ourselves.
In case you want to know more about the subject, please refer to the book.

Have a wonderful life!

The Last Became The First: Julia Dennis Frazier's Thrilling Second Book

Julia Dennis Frazier delights young and old alike in this romance novel, The Last Became The First, featuring passion, desire, and an attraction for the ages.

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, USA, July 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Last Became The First is an intimate and personal memoir. Julia discusses her life up close, to let people know an ordinary woman can follow her passion for a man she loves no matter what the circumstances. She could do things she never dreamed she would do but still not lose her identity. It tells about a woman finding her true love and soulmate, a partner for life.

"The Last Became The First" is an absorbing and exciting story full of intriguing plot twists. Julia Dennis Frazier takes the readers on her emotional journey, how she met a 23-year old named James, who went by the name of Jimmy, who was ten years younger than her. Julia has been married and divorced and has five children, and Jimmy is closer in age to her oldest son. Jimmy and Julia felt chemistry and physical attraction that was too strong to be denied.

Julia and Jimmy were raised in New York City and were native New Yorkers. Both of them loved being in the Urban Jungle. Jimmy, a model, dancer, and an actor, and Julia, a teacher, and devoted mom, was not prepared for what came next.

Jimmy was determined to make Julia his. Julia was swept off her feet when he first kissed her. It was an intense love affair, that was, by no means, a conventional relationship as their love has lasted even after death

"This romance novel represents the struggles and lessons of adults. This book will bring you on an emotional rollercoaster ride in the best of ways. The Last Became The First is an amazing, romantic story, as well as a tragic one. This is a very intimate love story, sexually explicit where it needs to be. I needed to write this story about two different worlds, and what happened to two lovers and what we went through," said Julia Dennis Frazier. "The way this book talks about love is different from a lot of the other books out there. Love can be unexpected. This book is unique, and a must-read!, but don't take my word for it," She added.

People interested in "The Last Became The First" and seeking a book that has got it all: betrayal, intrigue, and of course, plenty of passionate love can order on Amazon.

Praise for Julia Dennis Frazier and "The Last Became The First"

"The Last Became The First is a page-turner. The author gives her readers a peek into her life with her soulmate. Julia Dennis Frazier lets you into her world of love and understanding," said Lindsey Glover.

"You are an amazing and remarkable woman. I finally finished your book. “The Last Became The First” is fantastic. You had me in tears, laughing and surprised. Today on my way to school reading the last chapter, I started crying, feeling your pain. I had to stop reading, getting all choked up on the train, and people watching me. One lady said to me, "That must be a good book." I looked at her and said, "You just don't understand." and kept wailing. Julia, I am so looking forward to continuing to read more of your books. Thank you so much. You're blessed," said Diane Gonzalez.

"I have just finished Julia's book. I did not know that it was going to be a tearjerker. She has gone through so much in her life, and I'm happy she is at peace now. Some of the more intimate parts were sometimes a bit too much when I thought that people on the train were reading over my shoulders. Great reading! Let her know that I enjoyed her book," said Anna Barnes.

Christy Gardner with Moxie and Lucky

'LUCKY'…Little Guy, BIG MIssion' is the story of how Christy's own experiences have manifested with a adopting a special need puppy to be a therapy dog.

On this July 4th of 2020, Christy's story of patriotism, inspiration and hope is transcendent for Americans of every generation; and just what we need today and every day.”

— Brian Hoek

ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, July 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Inspiration comes in many forms. For author Eileen Doyon, it most recently came from seeing the story of Christy Gardner. Christy is a wounded veteran who has her trusted companion and service dog Moxie by her side. Having had both legs amputated due to injuries sustained during military service, Christy has relied on her own internal strength and fortitude to overcome life’s challenges. Part of her support system is playing sled hockey with the New England Warriors – and the ultra-supportive Moxie is never far away, even when she is on-the-ice.

Christy had contributed a piece to a book of Eileen’s back in 2014 and they stayed in touch ever since; including Eileen and her husband attending New England Warriors games. Another common connection to Christy is that Eileen’s husband is from the same hometown of Lewiston, Maine.

More recently, Christy adopted and trained a puppy by the name of ‘Lucky’ – who was starting out with a physical challenge – and it was there that Eileen’s first children’s book received its’ inspiration. Lucky is now a certified therapy dog at Leeds Central School in Maine.

“I was inspired to write ‘LUCKY…Little Guy, BIG Mission’ when I found out about Christy choosing to take Lucky home with her, giving him a chance at life. You see, when I met Christy, she inspired me by choosing to serve our great country; then after discharge, never, never giving up on anything in life that she wanted to do, regardless of circumstances.” says Eileen Doyon, “she said that Lucky was like her and she wanted to help him. I feel like we all need to learn from Christy about challenges we face in life in all areas. She is a true inspiration and champion! Lucky is proving to us all that being different is ok, and to never, never give up!”

Christy not only adopted ‘Lucky’ but has also trained him to become a therapy dog. For Eileen’s part, 50% of the profits from book sales are going to Christy to support her in the mission of training more puppies to live the enriching and rewarding life of being a service / therapy dog. The book is available for purchase on Amazon or direct from the Unforgettable Faces and Stories website: www.unforgettablefacesandstories.com/luckylittle-guy-big-mission

Christy’s story with Lucky was also featured on the CBS Evening News and CBS Sunday Morning: https://youtu.be/U-GlIE2ej3g

About the Author, Eileen Doyon:
Eileen has released eight books in her series ’Unforgettable Faces and Stories’. ‘LUCKY…Little Guy, BIG Mission’ is the ninth new release and her first children’s book. Eileen grew up in the small town of Fort Edward in upstate New York. She left there in 1978 and now lives in Portsmouth, New Hampshire with her husband, Dan and cat, Otis.
