The Book of the Bed: The Making of Human History From Atop and Between the Sheets

Book of the Bed

Cover Design

Bedroom Bedroom and the Shaping of Human History

Town Halls might query Presidential Candidates–Biden to Bernie, Beto to Buttigieg, Kamala to Klobuchar, Castro to Corey–about their sexual pasts, not merely questions about national health care.”

— James E. Shaw, Ph.D.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 15, 2019 / — James E. Shaw's new book (Amazon/Kindle Direct Publishing) is both a careful and carefree account of history's movers and shakers and the power they shared and wielded in the bedroom. Shaw, who holds a Ph.D. degree from the Claremont Graduate University, and has taught in the doctoral programs of professional schools of Psychology (The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, and California Southern University), says, "The BED is documentarian of the march of human history. A wordless page, a silent witness, it is a faithful and eternal record within the suns and moons of time." Shaw states that the bed itself has constantly evolved into a practical and beautifully exquisite piece of furniture, "as we must expect, given the innumerable sundry and diverse movers and shakers who have populated the annals of history."

Shaw’s book was published on the heels of revelations about former Vice President Joe Biden, who has been named by several women for “invading their space, burrowing his nose in their hair or otherwise engaging in unwanted and uninvited embracing behaviors,” states Shaw. “Citing the movers and shakers on Capitol Hill, the Washington press corps has occasionally chronicled the BED as altar and shrine for the love-struck and lust-laden, the noble and the naughty, the correct and the corrupt."

Shaw says that Capitol Hill is a feverish political environment “fermented by stories of male-female behavior.” Forthcoming Town Halls, arranged to publicly present Election Year 2020 presidential candidates, may soon begin several rounds of questioning these candidates with queries about their past sexual histories." Shaw notes that "Both male and female Presidential candidates–whether Biden or Bernie; Klobuchar or Kamala; Castro or Corey"–may find that an unexpected and surprising number of questions about their past relationships may be raised in the public comfort of Town Halls before, amid, and after the so-called 'hard questions' of the economy, national security, a uniform and effective national health insurance plan, growing racism, and foreign affairs."

Shaw cautions that "We will have to wait and see whether and how presidential campaign Town Halls might change from gusto and generosity to candidates' guarded and cagey responses." He adds: "It might well be asked and answered, at Town Halls, whether life and love have their reign and rule, their beginning and ending, on the BED." Before Americans vote, they certainly might view and review their most favored candidate and then rock their vote by raising the bar for their own interests, and not merely the candidate's interests. That is voter control." Shaw says that Scott Mering, General Manager of The Mattress Store Company, "enthusiastically took interest in my writing The Book of the Bed and regularly inquired about my writing progress. His time, encouragement and opinion, for which I will always be most grateful, is that in addition to appealing to a large, diverse cross-section of readers throughout America, The Book of the Bed might very well be welcomed by today's bedding and mattress industry as a kind of homecoming."

Kimlin Johnson, Acclaimed Author & Civil Rights Activist, Claims She was Forced to Resign due to Racial Bias/Harassment

Acclaimed Author & Civil Rights Activist Kimlin Johnson

Johnson filed a grievance with the Los Angeles County Sanitation District ( on the basis of racial and health condition discrimination.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 11, 2019 / — Acclaimed author of “Authenticity, Accountability & Ambitions: Speaking the Truth Through a Black Woman's Eyes (AAA),” and Civil Rights activist, Kimlin Charise Johnson was recently forced to resign from her job for perceived racial bias and harassment. After 23 years of loyal service at the Los Angeles County Sanitation District (LACSD), the LACSD served her with a Notice of Intent to Terminate on April 3rd 2019.

This was done even though Johnson’s infractions were minor, such as using LACSD resources such as a scanner and printer to help print her memoirs, and she was never given so much as an oral warning about these acts when they were noticed 6 months ago. Meanwhile, a white male coworker in the same department was also charged with a similar, but more serious, offense (use of LACSD resources to enrich his side business,) and received only a 10-day suspension earlier this year.

LACSD have a progressive disciplinary policy. Under that policy, insubordination is a 1-day suspension, misuse of equipment is a 1 to 2-day suspension, and even “deceit for personal gain” is also a multiple day suspension. Even fighting in the workplace or sleeping on the job do not carry such harsh punishments.

On the basis of these actions, Johnson has filed a grievance with the LACSD on the basis of racial and health condition discrimination, and retaliation primarily at the hands of her department head, Victoria Conway. The grievance was seemingly ignored and Ms. Johnson was neither informed of the results nor what action was taken despite requests for such information.

“According to Ms. Conway at an investigation meeting in January, this was not a ‘witch hunt,’” explains Johnson, “however, a ‘witch hunt’ is exactly what this was. It was an episode of Mean Girls completed during Women’s History Month.”

Johnson began working for the LACSD in 1995. She began as a student worker in the Solid Waste Department and worked her way up to Engineering Associate III in the Wastewater Management Department. Her department head had been Ms. Conway for about ten years. Over the years, Ms. Johnson, as an intelligent and confident Black woman, gained tremendous professional and personal experience through her work and private life and decided to commit her experiences to writing in a memoir which she hoped would empower other women of color seeking to succeed in what is often an uphill battle. To that end, she began to write.

“It was never a commercial enterprise,” states Johnson, “but rather a labor of love which has yet to gain her a single dollar after costs are considered.” Regrettably, on a small number of occasions, Johnson’s writing enthusiasm exceeded her lunch and rest times at the LACSD (the formal investigation noted a combined approximate 10 total unallowed hours over the course of 19 weeks—working out to approximately 0.5 hours per week). Additionally, Johnson made use of a LACSD scanner and some copy paper for her writing.

On about December 3rd 2018, Johnson was informed that she was under investigation for these improprieties and, over the course of the following months, no fewer than 4 meetings were held accusing her of various offenses. At all times, the meetings were staffed by no fewer than 3 LACSD employees; Linda Shadler (Industrial Waste Section Head), Jennifer Allen (Human Resources Manager) and led by Ms. Conway, a woman who, according to internal sources, “had it out” for Johnson from the start. During these unprofessional meetings, Johnson was denied the right to ask questions about the investigation, what the accusations were, and who her accusers were.

“I was never given a verbal nor written warning. In the evidence packet given to me with my Notice of Termination my written warning was from a 2002 Performance Evaluation,” continues Johnson, “In my book, I decided to honor the African heroes that paved the way in our nation's history, with the ultimate goal to make America better. That’s why I have also decided to fight these charges. It’s my hope that the taxpayers do not have to continue to pay for the LACSD’s Management’s blatant disregard of following disciplinary charts or policies. The LACSD is a public agency, not a family owned business.”

The Way to Happiness Center in Downtown Clearwater

Visitors to The Way to Happiness Center during the Downtown Block Party learn about morals and common sense.

The test of true competence is the end result. To the degree that a man is competent, he survives. To the degree he is incompetent he perishes.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

CLEARWATER, FL, US, April 11, 2019 / — On April 5th, The Way to Happiness (TWTH) Association Tampa Bay hosted the “Renaissance Speakers Clearwater”, a local Toastmaster club, at TWTH center in downtown Clearwater, Florida. The TWTH center conference, seminar and workshop rooms are offered at no cost to community groups to help these groups meet their financial challenges. A 2018 Survey sponsored by Wipfli showed that top financial challenges community groups face include revenue and cash flow and fundraising.

“We enjoy having our center bustling with productive activity. We support positive groups by freeing some of their financial burdens so they have more resources for their community missions”, said Tanja Cranton, Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay.

In 2017, the President of the “Renaissance Speakers Clearwater” Gina Lovick, heard of the opportunity to utilize TWTH center and approached the Executive Director of TWTH to establish the group’s needs. The club has been successfully holding their weekly meetings at The Way to Happiness center ever since.

The “Renaissance Speakers Clearwater” is a local Toastmaster club. Toastmasters is an international organization that helps to empower individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders. This goes hand-in-hand with one of the precepts of The Way to Happiness – “Be Competent”.

In the book, The Way to Happiness written by L. Ron Hubbard and which the center bases its activities is a chapter “Be Competent” in which L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “In common pursuits and activities, Man respects skill and ability. These in a hero or athlete are almost worshiped. The test of true competence is the end result. To the degree that a man is competent, he survives. To the degree he is incompetent he perishes. Encourage the attainment of competence in any worthwhile pursuit. Compliment it and reward it whenever you find it.”

The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay is sponsored by the Church of Scientology as one of its seven humanitarian outreach programs providing help in the community.

For more information on the program or to visit the center, please contact The Way to Happiness Community Center on 33 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater FL 33755. Open daily from 10am – 10pm or call: (727) 467 6961.

The campaign to distribute the book has been embraced by more than 257,000 groups and individuals. The booklet holds the Guinness World Record as the single most-translated nonreligious book and fills the moral vacuum in an increasingly materialistic society. The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay opened their headquarters in downtown Clearwater on July 11th, 2015.

Ten Tips To Help Special Needs Parents During Autism Awareness Month

Autism Awareness Month Tips

Autism Parents' Guide To Reclaiming Your Life

Author Deanna Picon Offers Ten Ways To Support Special Needs Families

Special needs parents are hidden heroes, who courageously face autism and all the enormous challenges and responsibilities that accompany it on a daily basis. They deserve our respect and recognition”

— Deanna Picon

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, US, April 10, 2019 / — Raising a child with a disability, while trying to balance work and family responsibilities is no easy task for even the most dedicated parents. Managing all aspects of a special needs child daily living – including personal needs, school activities, therapy sessions and medical appointments – can be extremely demanding and time-consuming.

“Autism Awareness Month is a perfect time for family, friends and the public to show their support for special needs parents,” said Deanna Picon, founder of Your Autism Coach, LLC and author of The Autism Parents' Guide to Reclaiming Your Life.

"These parents are hidden heroes who courageously face autism and all the enormous challenges and responsibilities that accompany it on an everyday basis. They may be your best friend, your cousin, your neighbor or co-worker," says Picon. "Special needs parents deserve respect and recognition for many reasons, including the sheer guts it takes to stay dedicated to this challenge."

Family and friends can apply these easy tips to make a huge difference in the lives of special needs parents:

1. Give a well-deserved break. Parenting is a 24/7, 365 day job for these parents, so any time they can get a few hours for themselves is great. Volunteer to watch their son or daughter at home or take him/her to a park or movie for a few hours. This will allow parents to have a good time and participate in hobbies, events and activities they enjoy.

And if you’re a family member or close friend, perhaps you can keep their child overnight or for a weekend. They’ll have “peace of mind” knowing their child is safe and well-cared for. Best of all, there are no child care costs.

2. Help with everyday tasks. Pick up some food and beverages at the supermarket when you shop or drop off some clothes at the dry cleaners. It'll save parents much needed time and energy.

3. Bring a dish. A pizza pie, box of chicken or even a take-out meal from a local Chinese restaurant can make everyone feel good and valued. Little cupcakes are fun treats for desserts. Gift cards for a local restaurant can be a wonderful surprise.

4. Assist with household chores. Vacuum a room, wash some dishes or cut up some tomatoes and lettuce for a salad. Remember, no gesture is too small and parents will always be grateful.

5. Keep in touch and be supportive. Special needs parents often feel alone and isolated, so it's really beneficial to let them know you're there, if they need you. With Mother’s and Father’s Day approaching soon, this is a perfect time to send a greeting card letting them know they’re great parents. Text, email or call to just say "Hello".

6. Listen without judgement. Bring over some snacks, sit down and just listen. Allow them to laugh, cry, vent and blow off some steam. No one expects you to solve their problems or provide solutions. A friendly face or shoulder to lean on works perfectly.

Work colleagues can show their support as well:

7. Treat them. Little gestures can bring a big smile to the special needs parent in your office. Buy a cup of coffee or tea with a donut or bagel and place it on their desk in the morning. Take a co-worker out for a nice lunch.

The public can also support special needs families in various ways:

8. Increase public awareness. Autism Awareness Month is a perfect time to learn more about this disorder. Watch a TV news report, read an article or go online to gain a better understanding of this condition. Start a conversation with a friend or family member.

9. Participate. You don’t have to be personally affected by autism to become involved in charitable activities such as a community fundraiser or walk. If possible, take part in a local autism event in your area. Meet some of the wonderful special needs families in your community.

10. Express your support. Donations to local and national autism organizations are always welcome and appreciated. Purchase goods and services from companies that contribute to autism-related causes.

Your Autism Coach, LLC provides personalized guidance, comprehensive support programs and seminars that address the concerns of special needs parents. Now on Twitter (@yourautismcoach), look for the latest parenting tips and advice from Deanna Picon. She shows parents how to overcome the challenges of raising a child with special needs, while building a rewarding life for themselves.
