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

TAMWORTH, STAFFORDSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, January 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Universal acceleration without dark energy
https://simon28030.wixsite.com/mysite/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. https://simon28030.wixsite.com/mysite/dark-energy

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 https://simon28030.wixsite.com/mysite/dark-energy

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 www.SimonJB.com. 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

SAL LICCARDO’S NEW BOOK DETAILS SAN JOSE COUPLE’S STRUGGLE AGAINST PHARMACEUTICAL GIANT SO WOMEN COULD BE INFORMED ABOUT POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS FROM “THE PILL”

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 /EINPresswire.com/ — 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.

Major General Craig B. Whelden, Established Author, Examines Integrity Via the Houston Astros Cheating Scandal

Major Craig Wheldon

“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” – C.S. Lewis

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s January, yet baseball is making the news. What’s going on?

A recently-discovered cheating scandal uncovered the Houston Astros filming opposing catcher signals in order to relay the kind of pitch to be thrown, then conveying them to the Astros dugout. Once there, someone would bang on a drum in such a way that the hitter would know what kind of pitch was about to be thrown.

While perhaps not the only reason the Astros won the 2017 World Series, it certainly adds to the litany of tainted victories across professional sports: Lance Armstrong’s seven drug-enhanced Tour de France victories; NBA referee Tim Donaghy betting on games he officiated (landing him a 15 month prison sentence); the New England Patriot’s “Deflate-gate” scandal and untold number of steroid-enhanced athletes failing drug tests.

Caught up in the Astros “signal-gate” was Alex Cora, the celebrated manager of the Boston Red Sox. He was the Astros Bench Coach when this ugly episode happened and was fired this week.

Why does this happen?

Because there’s a “win-at-all-costs” attitude in professional sports, just as there is in life. For many it’s worth it. The human conscience is a malleable character trait that is too often bested by temptation. Career criminals demonstrate that cheating is all too common in our society and warrants the repeated risks.

Former fighter pilot and author of the NYT Best-seller, “Never Fly Solo” Waldo Waldman says “It’s better to lose with full integrity than win with none.”

I’m with Waldo. Who are you with?

Author Dr. Mary Theresa Webb to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Though President Trump’s approval rating among evangelicals remains overwhelmingly supportive, more and more evangelicals are coming out of the shadows to condemn the President’s behavior.

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

“I wrote the book because I was concerned about evangelical support for Trump and why they didn't seem to be following Jesus’s teaching,” says Dr. Webb. “I started a dialogue with some evangelicals who support Trump to find out what their position was to see if we could come to some consensus.”

Through biblical teaching and political and social commentary, Dr. Webb guides readers to make practical decisions as believers.

“I dedicate the book to those who wish to agree to disagree agreeably because there is such a split in our culture that we can't even talk to each other anymore,” says Dr. Webb. “It’s tribalism. I think we need to get back to seeing if we can have a civil society, which we seem to have lost.”

Dr. Webb is a dedicated and proud evangelical Christian. Her mission work has taken her all over the world training church leadership. Today, she is part of a non-denominational movement within Christianity known as the Red Letter Christians, referring to the verses printed in red ink, which indicate the words attributed directly to Jesus. Red Letter Christians believe Christians should be paying attention to Jesus' words and example by promoting biblical values such as peace, building strong families, the elimination of poverty, and other important social justice issues.

Tony Campolo, founder of the Red Letter Christians movement said of Following Jesus: In the Age of Trump: “This short book will force the reader to reflect on what is required if Jesus is to be taken seriously in this age of excesses of political power, deception in government, and unchecked accumulations of wealth. It will disturb you, especially if you support the present administration in Washington.”

“This is what it says in the new Testament and what it means to live a Christian life,” says Dr. Webb. “Some listen to Franklin Graham and they follow what he says. Others won't vote for anybody who isn’t pro-life. Some believe Trump is protecting the country from immigrants, which I cover extensively in my book. Most pick and choose sections of the Bible and interpreting them for their own purposes.”

Dr. Webb says when you have a culture that is resistant to change and life has been disrupted, people look for easy solutions. What frightens her most is that people will follow a charismatic leader no matter what language he uses, lies he tells, or people he demonizes. When that happens, our democracy is threatened.

“What we have is called Trumpism followers: people who follow blindly and irrationally. I believe Trump is using this group of Christians for his own purposes, and they overlook everything he says and does because they believe God has chosen him to usher in a new Christian age. A dangerous New Apostolic Movement encourages Christian control over politics, culture, and business leading to a theocratic government, led by self-appointed prophets and apostles,” says Dr. Webb. “We're right at the brink and if we allow this to go on, it will be to our great peril as a Democratic nation. If one person changes their mind about President Trump from my book, it will be worth it.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Mary Theresa Webb in an interview with Jim Masters on January 17th at 2pm EST

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio

LA Mag Article

"Kerbeck’s writing is so visceral it feels like fiction. Malibu Burning is described as the “best kind of nonfiction." – Los Angeles Review of Books.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Robert Kerbeck, acclaimed author, is continuing to succeed and gain recognition for his nonfiction book about the Woosley Fire, “Malibu Burning: The Real Story Behind LA’s Most Devastating Wildfire.” In the past 2 months since its release in November 2019, Kerbeck’s book has received numerous accolades and has been shown in many forms of media. For example, “Malibu Burning” won the Best of Los Angeles “Best Historical Nonfiction of 2019” Award, received the Readers Favorite Five Star Review, and was featured in the Top 15 End of Year Book list by the Jewish Journal.

Now to add on to the list of accolades, Kerbeck is being praised by the esteemed Los Angeles Review of Books for “Malibu Burning.” “Kerbeck’s writing is so visceral it feels like fiction. Malibu Burning is described as the ‘best kind of nonfiction’,” states Los Angeles Review of Books.

Los Angeles Review of Books continues, “Kerbeck is a natural journalist. Malibu Burning uplifts the reader by sharing moments of individual resiliency and human strength and reminds us how important connection is when nature dominates man.”

Check out the full review of “Malibu Burning” by the Los Angeles Review of Books here:
https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/sifting-the-ashes-of-malibu/

Malibu Burning is a combination of investigative journalism and memoir, a series of stories of people involved with and impacted by the fire that ripped through Los Angeles and Ventura counties, destroying thousands of homes and displacing nearly 300,000 residents. In a dramatic retelling of this horrific tragedy, Kerbeck reveals surprising twists and turns to the story.

The book has truly seen the light of day since its release last year and has been shown throughout media outlets. Excerpts from the book were featured in Los Angeles Magazine and the Los Angeles Times. Also, articles on “Malibu Burning” were featured in Epoch Newspaper, Good Men Project, and other national print media.

Kerbeck has also been very prominent in making in-person appearances to numerous shows and podcasts. He appeared on the national radio show Coast to Coast with George Noory, was brought on as a “wildfire expert” on KTLA’s Morning Show, and has been on numerous other major radio shows and podcasts, including Writers on Writing, CBS, Change Your Life, Change Your Attitude, and The Aware Show with Lisa Garr.

Since fighting the Woolsey Fire and writing Malibu Burning, Kerbeck has become a fierce advocate for fire safety for homeowners. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) thanked Robert for writing Malibu Burning, especially the chapter on the contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory where the Woolsey Fire started. They offered to team up with him on environmental issues related to wildfires.

——————-

Robert Kerbeck

Robert Kerbeck is the founder of the Malibu Writers Circle and a three-time Pushcart Prize nominee. On November 9, 2018, Robert, along with his wife and teenage son, fought to save their home from the deadly Woolsey fire, the worst wildfire in Los Angeles history. His harrowing first-person account was read by over a million people as an Op-Ed for the Los Angeles Times. Based on that essay, comes his book one year later, Malibu Burning: The Real Story Behind LA’s Most Devastating Wildfire. Kerbeck interviewed nearly every player in the fire from the LA County Supervisor to the Deputy Fire Chief to the Malibu City Manager, as well as many well-known people whose lives were affected. Celebrities who were interviewed or appear in the book include Bob Dylan, Joan Didion, Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Kevin Dillon, Matt Dillon, Julia Roberts, Anthony Kiedis, Chris Martin, Leonardo DiCaprio, and many others.

Malibu Burning is a combination of investigative journalism and memoir…a series of stories of people involved with and impacted by the fire that ripped through Los Angeles and Ventura counties, destroying thousands of homes and displacing nearly 300,000 residents. In a dramatic retelling of this horrific tragedy, Kerbeck reveals surprising twists and turns to the story, including a secret nuclear power plant where the fire started, firefighters who would not fight the fire, and the real life stories of the people—the real people—who lost everything they owned in 2,000 degree flames. Readers feel part of the dramatic, life-threatening journey portrayed through the stories of not just the celebrities but the teachers, gardeners, house cleaners, farmers—and children. This is more than a story about the most famous community of Los Angeles; it's a human interest and survival tale anyone can relate to.

Since fighting the Woolsey Fire and writing Malibu Burning, Kerbeck has become a fierce advocate for fire safety for homeowners. He has simple (and inexpensive) tips that every homeowner can take to “harden” their homes and protect them from the wildfires that are getting worse every year and now burning into areas not normally prone to wildfires. These are steps every homeowner should make.

L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers & Illustrators of the Future welcomes Dan dos Santos as Contest judge

Every artist learns from artists that came before them, growing, and surpassing the previous generation in both skill and timeliness.”

— Dan dos Santos

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dan dos Santos is one of the most recognized artists in the field who helped shape the fantasy market with his colorful oil paintings of strong women. His award-winning art has graced numerous #1 New York Times bestselling books and can be seen on covers across the globe.

From book illustrations for Patrick Rothfuss to Brandon Sanderson, Diana Rowland to Mike Resnick, one would think Dan was already a part of the Writers & Illustrators of the Future. He has done multiple covers and illustrations for both judges and winners of the Contest. But aside from his amazing talent, it is his continuous effort to pass down skills to the next generation of artists that brought him on board with the Contest. As he himself stated, "Every artist learns from artists that came before them, growing, and surpassing the previous generation in both skill and timeliness."

Dan dos Santos was originally met at Dragon Con in Atlanta. It was much like meeting Larry Elmore, Ciruelo, Rob Prior, or even Frank Frazetta, who are all the most humble down-to-earth people you ever met. And while every one of them stated that the others are so legendary and all seem to look up to each other, one defining quality they had in common was ensuring there will be artists for generations to come by passing along their valuable knowledge. This aligns with L. Ron Hubbard's vision in starting the Contests for both writers and illustrators back in the 1980s.

With the Illustrators of the Future Contest, new and aspiring artists are given a level playing field where their creative efforts can be viewed by the very best. Winners also partake in a week-long workshop with Contest judges, free of charge, where they learn the craft and business of illustration, and how to make a living in the industry. "The Illustrators of the Future is an amazing compass for what the art industry holds in store for all of us," stated Dan.

The Writers of the Future Writing Contest (www.writersofthefuture.com) was created by L. Ron Hubbard to provide a means for aspiring writers to get that much-needed break with the first volume releasing in 1985. Due to the success of the Writing Contest, the companion Illustrators of the Future Contest was created.

The Writers and Illustrators of the Future Award is the genre’s most prestigious award of its kind and has now become the largest, most successful, and demonstrably most influential vehicle for budding creative talent in the world of contemporary fiction. Since inception, the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests have produced 35 anthology volumes and awarded nearly $1 Million cumulatively in cash prizes and royalties.
