Novelist JA Carlton’s “Wednesday’s Child” Considered Speculative-Fiction

A new release from thriller writer JA Carlton, called “Wednesday’s Child”, takes place within our own future and is based on the tech and timbre of today’s social, political and economic climates, but the battles waged on its pages are timeless.

Austin, TX, October 05, 2011 - “Wednesday’s Child”, the first in Carlton’s “Freedom Fighter” series, is set in 2055. The United States as we know it today lays dead and bloody on the face of the earth. A series of seemingly coincidental disasters have forced world leaders to mark the U.S. as a global “No fly” zone and ensured the closure of the country’s borders.

With his country sealed off from prying eyes, a narcissistic madman pursues his personal and political quest to be recognized as ‘The man who out-designed God’.

The story’s hero is Jade McKay, a genetically engineered ‘super-soldier’ who knows nothing of the enemy’s plans for her destiny as the new “Eve”.

Stolen before birth by the scientists commanded to create her, Jade was raised among the struggling survivors of an engineered apocalypse, learning the nature of her enemy without ever knowing the truth of her own origins. One moment in a hidden mountain base has given her access to the true agenda that simply began with the U.S. but has no plans to stop until every nation on the globe has been ‘re-designed’.

With time running out Government agents will do anything they can from torture to blackmail, to get Jade back into their clutches before she can inform the world about the government’s true plans. They even go so far as to send an agent back in time to ensure there is nowhere for the scientists to escape to before Jade is born.

Carlton’s blatant comparison of the ramifications of today’s partisan political antics, and the harm it’s causing to the American citizenry, paints a dark portrait of government sanctioned genocide. The very real possibility that today’s citizens are fighting for not just basic human rights, but the very right to exist is at the heart of the story.

The books’ trailer can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAGkdsIJ904

“On the surface, the series is just science fiction, but the deeper you go, the more you see where we may really be headed as a nation.” Says Elaine Zuliani – Co-Founder, CFO and Spokes-person for Uneak Press, Inc.

Uneak Press prides itself on being a “Publisher for Writers who are Passionate about Their Craft” and has established itself as a champion of good, solid storytelling providing a haven for storytellers, artisans and wordsmiths.

Uneak Press, Inc. proudly supports JA Carlton’s “Heroes of the Line” Child Abuse Prevention campaign, so named after her Y/A supernatural action/adventure series of the same name. Information is available at the “Nick, of Time” Facebook page.

Carlton is currently working on no less than three more projects that Uneak Press hopes to begin unveiling in the spring of 2012.

The company has also welcomed a new addition to its family in the form of another Supernatural Thriller writer Will Holloway whose first book “The Immortal Body” will be released also in the spring of 2012.

SAFE International Launches Pickering Women’s Self Defense Parties – Pickering, ON Self Defense

SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include women’s self defense parties in Pickering, ON.

Pickering, ON, October 04, 2011 - (Straight Line PR) - Pickering Self Defense, SAFE International Launches Pickering Women’s Self Defense Parties.

SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in Ontario. SAFE International has taught more than 120,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include women’s self defense parties in Pickering, ON.

SAFE International quickly realized that women had completely different concerns, fears, and needs than males. Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International listened to their concerns and tailored something that was not only educational, but also met their personal fears. Men have no idea what women go through on an everyday basis from the stares and comments to the physical gestures and advances.

One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching women’s self defense Pickering, is how receptive women are to the skills that the SAFE International instructors provide. SAFE International teaches self defense concepts, rather than techniques. This allows women to learn in a much shorter time. SAFE International always covers Awareness and Avoidance strategies which are based on one's daily routines. We examine what an attacker looks for, what an attacker wants and doesn't want in confrontation. One of the biggest topics we explore is how most people are too polite, even when their intuition is telling them the complete opposite. We cover the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an advantage. We then move on to verbal strategies in the event that avoidance is no longer possible. Rather than just teaching to yell at a potential attacker, we cover a few verbal strategies based on the aggressor and the scenario.  The third step is addressing the physical aspect of Pickering women’s self defense. We begin with the advantages of adopting a passive stance rather than an aggressive stance. We only teach gross motor strikes due to the adrenal rush one gets when they are in a highly stressful state such as an attack scenario.  We teach a philosophy of "Attack the Attacker" which reverses one from being the Prey, to that of being the Predator.  Another philosophy is to attack the head if all avoidance and verbal strategies have failed. This is only 30 minutes into the physical training and you can see how the self defense concepts are very effective.  The self defense drills increase with intensity as the participants gain more confidence.  This is very important as you don't want to terrify your clients right from the start.  It is important to build rapport with your students and the results will be seen as the drills progress. The following YouTube video shows how much can be learned in only 30 minutes of women’s self defense instruction.

Forget Tupperware Parties!
Invite 6 to 8 of your friends for a few hours of fun, education and potentially life- saving instruction. Plan a meal, bbq, snacks, maybe some dessert! Be prepared for a unique Pickering Women’s Self Defense experience! What has made SAFE International so popular is their unique method of teaching with humour and sharing of anecdotes. Get to experience their simulated attacks in scenario specific situations such as at the front door, the kitchen, the car, etc.

SAFE International has taught more than 120,000 clients including mothers, fathers, daughters, police officers, seniors, and people with disabilities.

Black Mold, Lawsuits and the Pursuit of a Healthy Home Environment

Building Cleaning Services ensures superior service for mold removal, serving homeowners in the greater Los Angeles area. Specializing in mold remediation, Building Cleaning Services provides effective mold removal, preventing problems that can result from neglecting mold growth.

Los Angeles, CA, October 03, 2011 (Straight Line PR) -- Homeowners, housing authorities and construction companies can avoid the health risks that water damage and black mold can cause by speedily addressing the source of the problem and removing the mold. Building Cleaning Services, a leading Los Angeles mold remediation company, says fast, effective mold removal could prevent lengthy and expensive litigation that can result from neglect of the problem.

Multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements regarding black mold damage that caused health risks were reported in 2010, one case topping almost $12 million. In that instance, a housing authority ignored tenant complaints of mold, aggravating respiratory problems in a 12-year-old asthmatic girl who allegedly suffered oxygen deprivation during an asthma attack, resulting in brain damage.

In another case this year, a lawsuit on behalf of a mother and baby resulted in a $550,000 settlement against a landlord who had rented them a house and ignored long-term roof leaks causing mold. The plaintiffs alleged that mold and other conditions worsened the mother's pre-existing asthma, and contributed to the premature birth of her son.

While there aren't standard guidelines about how much or what kind of mold is toxic ( http://1clik2.com/WorriedAboutMold ), mold has been blamed for headaches, respiratory problems, lung disease, skin rashes and memory loss.

BCS - Building Cleaning Services ( http://www.BuildingCleaningServices.net ) takes the worry out of mold removal but urges those concerned by it to act quickly. As one BCS client stated, "If you suspect water damage in a wall, don't take time to think it over. Act! Staining means that moisture is in the wall. Mold grows in 24 hours. It doesn't take a big opening to allow a lot of water to come inside - a bit of decayed caulking by the window trim can cause a whole lotta grief."

"Sheldon and Jeff from BCS came out immediately to my home and patiently explained what had occurred. Of course this was scary for me, but I knew I was in good hands... the BCS guys are great fun to be around," said one recent BCS customer.

Mail Slot Basket May Save You from Credit Card Late Fees

"My dog ate my homework". That excuse may have worked for you in school but as an adult, late fees can't be explained away.

Sunnyvale, CA, October 04, 2011 - "My dog ate my homework". That excuse may have worked for you in school but as an adult, late fees can't be explained away. In fact, many businesses count on you being late for part of their planned revenue. Credit cards typically charge up to $39 and may increase your interest rate, or ding your credit rating, for each late payment.

Unfortunately, sometimes a bill is missed when it falls through your mail slot to your garage floor, under a box, or into the mouth of the family dog. A mail basket that "captures" the mail on the other side of the mail slot can pay for itself by being a precaution against lost mail. Such a basket is now available at http://www.brighthardware.com

The basket is welded with heavy gauge wire and powder-coated. Its classic glossy black finish is intended to add to the appeal of the property for future home owners. Mounting hardware and simple instructions are included.

"Arrived, installed and it’s just what I needed. Thanks for your product” - A. Wein, New Jersey

Brighthardware.com is a retail online site providing unique home hardware solutions.  Our flagship product is a heavy duty swinging wire mail basket for mail slots and garage doors which keeps your daily mail away from the floor and dogs.

Get Ready for a Kitchen Revolution: 100% Natural Spray Cooking Oils from Winona Pure now in 8 Varieties!

With the success of the original three flavors of Winona Pure cooking sprays, Winona Foods has added an additional five varieties: Butter Flavored Canola Oil, Lemon Butter Flavored Canola Oil, Garlic Butter Flavored Canola Oil, Balsamic & Olive Oil, and Popcorn Butter Flavored Canola Oil.

Arlington Heights, IL, October 04, 2011 - These five new flavors join the original three—100% Canola Oil, 100% Olive Oil, and 100% Sunflower Oil—for a total of eight varieties of All-Natural Spray Cooking Oils. Winona Pure is known for being all-natural, with no additives. Even the packaging is specially designed for maximum freshness and flavor without sacrificing convenience.

“The food revolution is thriving,” says David Meyer, Vice President of Winona Foods, “and Winona Pure is meeting consumers right at home with creative and inspiring flavors of spray oils that make any home cook feel like an Iron Chef.”

And now, with the addition of these new flavors, Winona Pure cooking oil can be used to make all your cooking more healthful, convenient, and satisfying. From grilling and frying to pastas and salads, all of them can be enhanced with Winona Pure’s flavorful and healthy cooking oils.

The secret is in the Winona Pure bottles themselves, which provide the convenience of a spray bottle without aerosols, alcohol, and silicone. Pure freshness, pure flavor. Winona Foods is proud to offer cooking oils that appeal to both health-conscious and eco-conscious consumers.

How it Works: Winona Pure uses vacuum technology to create easy-to-use packaging that provides a fine, even spray without the use of propellants, while featuring an opaque bottle that protects the contents from contaminants and light. Additionally, the spray nozzle is designed for variable distribution. Press gently to dribble oil from the nozzle, press harder for an even mist.

The Benefits: Winona Pure is formulated without additives and chemicals, and has only one ingredient: the oil itself. Winona Pure appeals to any health-conscious consumer interested in a heart-healthy diet. Furthermore, because Winona Pure doesn’t use any aerosols and doesn’t have contents under pressure, the packaging is 100% recyclable, and uses less material overall, reflecting Winona Foods commitment to being Earth-friendly.
