A former educator and owner/operator of learning centers, Pam Johnson was diagnosed ADHD and had most of the same problems in school that her students were having. She had learned over the years how to compensate for her different learning style and lack of organization, and knew what would work for her students .These compensation techniques were incorporated into her Centers. Her students went from D’s and F’s to A’s and B’s within 4-6 weeks. These compensation techniques were incorporated successfully into her Centers using her “Study Quick” System. Mrs. Johnson also started the first ADHD Support Group for Parents in Hixson, Tennessee to help parents learn to help their children quickly learn routines and structure at home without having to constantly remind them. Every parent who used these techniques and was consistent had immediate success!iveaway

Book Blast: Thunder in the Wind by Curt Orloff

 

 

Inside the Book:

 

Title: Thunder in the Wind
Author: Curt Orloff
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Fiction/Westerns
Format: EbookPurchase Here

Thunder in the Wind is a historical novel concerning the assimilation reservation American Indians underwent at the turn of the twentieth century. The first part of the work describes how the Assiniboine, and one family in particular, deal with the onslaught of a society that not only was technologically superior, but also thought itself so morally superior it treats the tribe as if it was a hopeless dependent. The second part follows the exploits of the main character as he tries to unite the Plains, Great Basin, and Southwestern tribes in revolt, not to defeat the whites, but to scare them so badly they would restore to the Indians the selfhood they had stolen. Miskaw deals with the same trials Tecumseh experienced early in the previous century while uniting the tribes east of the Mississippi and, in dealing with them learns several truths about himself and the human condition. If not for hubris, the outcome of his endeavor may have been dramatically different.

I’m a Yankee who became a damn Yankee when I wouldn’t leave the South. When I did leave it, was for overseas where I comfortably acquired the moniker of “yank”. I have two bachelor degrees. The one in geology I use to support myself, the one in history just showed I am curious about human nature. This curiosity culminated in Thunder in the Wind after I found out about a Cree named Almighty Voice while I was engaged in geologic fieldwork in Montana. His revolt almost united the tribes. I was an Army 1st Lieutenant, lived for golf as a youth and got to play on the University of Houston golf team, and was an Eagle Boy Scout. I’ve been writing books for over two decades, getting only to the agent level. At present, one agent is peddling a novel I wrote about the oilfield. I was a well-site geologist for fourteen years and a petroleum engineer, mostly overseas, for seven years.

Book Feature: Disease is an Expiation of the Sins by Dr. Mira Bajirova

 

 

 

Inside the Book:

Title: Disease is an Expiation of the Sins
Author: Dr. Mira Bajirova
Publisher: Partridge Singapore
Genre: Religion
Format: Ebook/Paperback
Disease is an expiation of the sins. Every sin is a disobedience to God. The sins involve the evil jinn (demons). When a person commits the sin, a black spot appears on his heart. If he repents, asks for the forgiveness, gives up with the sins, restores the people’s rights and honor, who were wronged, and follows the Qur’an and Sunnah, Almighty Allah will purify his heart. But, if a person continues with the sins, his heart will become black and he will be doomed. “… Indeed, there is in the body a piece of flesh which if it is sound then the whole body is sound, and if it is corrupt then the whole body is corrupt. It is the heart.” (Bukhari) “Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.” (Qur’an, Ar-R’ad 13:28) Sins remove God’s blessings: life, health, fertility, wealth, provisions, knowledge, memory… Refraining from the sins is more important than performing good deeds. “Whatever is good is from Allah, while evil and sin are from ourselves and satan” (Fatwas of Ibn Baz) The only one God, Allah, the Creator of the heavens and earth and everything between, seen and unseen, sent the Noble Qur’an and His last messenger to all mankind, as a healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy, and warning about the day of judgment and hellfire. “No calamity has descended except by disobedience, and no calamity is repelled except by repentance.” (Ali Ibn Abi Talib) “Know, for certain, that when you break no one will heal you except you.” (Ibn Al-Qayyim) More than 90% of the diseases are caused by the evil jinn, but doctors have no knowledge. Healthcare needs serious reform as went astray, instead of healing, it contributes to the progression of the disease and death, as it excites the hidden evil jinn and excited jinn spread more the disease. Satan can be cast out only by Ruqya and Negative Ions; both in the Noble Qur’an. The Ultimate Cure from all diseases is with Almighty God: Ruqya, Negative Ions and Prophetic Medicine. “Whoever abandons the Qur’an would abandon treating sickness and seeking healing through it.” (Ibn Al-Qayyim).

Guest Post from Curtis Orloff, author of Streetcar Sandwiches

 

Title: Streetcar Sandwiches
Author: Curtis Orloff
Publisher: Authorhouse
Genre: Performing Arts/Screenplay
Format: Ebook/Paperback/Hardcover

 

 

Streetcar Sandwiches is a screenplay showing the efforts the owner of a sandwich shop in Uptown New Orleans undertakes to keep her business running. Not only does she have to deal with a menagerie of all types of employees, she has to comply with onerous and often conflicting regulations from several government bureaus. How she handles what turns into an ordeal threatens to change her naturally optimistic and pleasant personality. It leads directly to an outcome that could only have occurred in the Big Easy.

GUEST POST:
It has always been a pet peeve of mine that people equate niceness with mental deficiency.  It is an axiom tough guys finish first while nice guys finish last, or even have to be taken care of.  Being aggressive has become an attribute. Look at Patton, Steven Jobs, or even Admiral King, who was notoriously known as being even tempered, “always mad.”  Name one national hero who was known for his niceness and concern for others. If you do, it is in human services, as Mother Teresa, Jane Adams, or Helen Keller, never a titan of industry or commerce.
But that cliché’ is all wrong.  One can be savvy, industrious, and wise while treating each other with respect.  One can care about them. In fact, doing so reaps serendipitous rewards. Good things happen, as what occurred in the story “Streetcar Sandwiches”.  One act of unnecessary and undeserved kindness turned imminent defeat into victory. Of course, it was followed up with a lot of subterfuge once what had been revealed became apparent.  As I implied, nice people aren’t dumb.
In a similar vein the best way to handle overbearing, overregulating governments is to be yourself.  Notice how they always demand conformity, in speech, dress, and comportment. They love synchronic marches.  The definition of a good and proper person is how well one represents the ideal. And who is this ideal? Whatever the power that be decide.  Sure, in the military and in corporations one has to conform. But as long as one knows why he is putting on a mask he will be fine. It is when one gives up selfhood to strive to become what others require, when one is lost.
I did not know it at the time but I was more rebellious running my sandwich shop than I was as a boisterous student activist, getting in the papers every time I was arrested.  Authoritative entities can’t handle spontaneity or individualistic expressions of personality. Know what seeded the demise of the Warsaw Pact? All those Young Pioneers loved Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins—and Levi Jeans.  They risked social ostracism and even punishment just so they could express themselves.
That is why individuals throughout history brought down empires, ended repression. Gandhi, Lech Walesa, it doesn’t matter who you are.  Anna Walentynowicz was a cranewoman who had had enough. She was instrumental in founding the Polish trade union Solidarity. A cranewoman!
Why is this the case?  How does this happen over and over?  Those who turn people into cogs never last.  They may start a movement, as I started one in college, and strive to stay attached, stay current, be the ideal person.  But all movements eventually end, or whirl out of control, throwing everyone off. Quite suddenly too. Look at the USSR.  Those bureaucrats I fought to save my sandwich shop and my employees’ jobs had no idea how badly their ignorant regulations were hurting businesses.  They were strangling the golden goose. But before they went too far, and , of course, blamed the golden goose for its demise, I stopped them. Just by being myself, and applying a little savvy.
