FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Code-At-Home Tech Toys Keep Girls Engaged, Away From Computer Screens, During COVID-19 School Closures

Are you looking for constructive ways to keep your children stimulated and engaged during the COVID-19 school shutdown? The line of groundbreaking toys from SmartGurlz Inc. uses an award-winning robotics platform to teach basic coding skills to girls as young as 6.

“Many girls’ toys lag behind in the development of spatial skills, hands-on problem solving skills, and confidence with coding and computer science,” explains SmartGurlz founder Sharmi Albrechtsen. “These are exactly the skills that SmartGurlz aims to develop.”

The SmartGurlz line of unique, interactive, self-balancing robots and dolls are controlled with the SugarCoded™ App than can be downloaded onto an IOS or android phone or tablet that once downloaded requires no Wi-Fi, just Bluetooth.

A full, step-by-step tutorial teaches basic coding strategies so young girls can maneuver the toys around obstacle courses of their own design. With several levels of learning and chal-lenges, the toy keeps kids occupied several hours a week for 4-6 months.

The company is also offering a free weekly webinar for parents and kids affected by COVID- 19 that includes getting started, tips and tricks, and weekly home assignments.

Girls playing with SmartGurlz products learn three key concepts:

1. Spatial Reasoning. Girls learn how to direct/orient their robots in new environments and in-terpret maps.

2. Computer Programming. Girls learn to program their robots using our kid-friendly coding App called SugarCodedTM.

3. Storytelling & Problem Solving. Girls learn to tell stories and solve missions via coding.

The SmartGurlz product line also includes an e-book series available through the App that focuses on the everyday adventures of four talented young women studying at the fictional New York Institute of Technology — N.I.T.

We’re all adjusting to a new normal. You can use this extra time at home to inspire the female tech leaders of tomorrow with toys that integrate the power of play with the power of technology.

SmartGurlz CEO Sharmi Albrechtsen is a robotics aficionado, educator, author and mom with a passion for closing the diversity gap in technology.

In 2015, Sharmi started SmartGurlz after becoming frustrated with the lack of STEM toys available for her daughter. The SmartGurlz flagship product, Siggy, was the first robotics product designed specifically for girls. More than 30,000 girls have been educated with SmartGurlz. SmartGurlz partners include BlackGirlsCode, Girl Scouts of America and Morrison Mentors.

SmartGurlz recently expanded its product line to include Smart Buddies (a joint-venture with Pitsco Education), which features a diverse set of characters suitable for both girls and boys, targeted towards schools.

Sharmi was recently given AdWeek’s Disruptor Award in Championing Gender Diversity in Advertising and Tech. She has also been named Women Entrepreneur of the Year 2018 by the Asian Chamber of Commerce as well as named a Morgan Stanley Multi-Cultural Innovation Lab fellow. Sharmi has been featured in Forbes, Huffington Post, Financial Times, Fox Business News, Fox and Friends and CNN. She is also a featured TEDx speaker.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Meryl Streep: On the Couch Offers Intimate Look At Hollywood Icon

The widely popular On the Couch series by Alma Bond, Ph.D., has given readers unique and revealing perspectives into the lives of Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O, Hillary Clinton and Barbara Streisand as seen through the eyes of fictitious New York psychoanalyst Dr. Darcy Dale.

Dr. Bond’s latest, Meryl Streep: On the Couch, takes us inside the life of this Hollywood icon and political activist who’s been nominated for more than 20 Oscars. Her film-ography reads like a greatest hits from the past 40 years, from Kramer v. Kramer to The Devil Wears Prada and the enchanting Mama Mia! ― Streep has seemingly checked every box. But who is she when the cameras aren’t rolling? Readers are about to find out!

When Streep decides to pay Dr. Darcy Dale a visit, it isn’t for treatment. Streep is preparing for her next role, and she’s come to observe and study Manhattan’s most successful psychoanalyst. The two women strike a deal: Streep will have to undergo psychoanalytic treatment herself as part of her research. What follows is a tale that explores the journey and the psyche of a character whose spell never wears off on fans.

Author Alma H. Bond received her Ph.D. from Columbia University and became a highly successful psychoanalyst in private practice for 37 years in New York City. She “retired” to become a full-time writer. She has written more than 26 books, including her On the Couch Series, Camille Claudel, a Novel; The Autobiography of Maria Callas, a Novel; Old Age is a Terminal Illness; I Married Dr. Jekyll and Woke Up Mrs. Hyde; On Becoming a Grandparent; and a children’s book, The Tree That Could Fly. Dr. Bond also wrote the play, Maria, about the life of Maria Callas.

Her late husband, Rudy Bond, was a well-known actor, appearing in many films such as A Streetcar Named Desire, top Broadway shows and in more than 100 TV shows. He also wrote the book I Rode a Streetcar Named Desire. The Bonds have three children, all of whom have published books, and eight grandchildren, none of whom have published books … yet.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Unresolved Trauma And Toxic Stress Seep Into The Way We Partner, Parent, Labor And Love

This groundbreaking new book by Dr. Tian Dayton offers a path to healing for the
millions of people who grew up with addiction, trauma, or adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).

Toxic stress and trauma are gaining a rightful place in our country’s national health agenda. Almost two-thirds of people reported at least one adverse childhood event (ACE), and more than one in five reported three or more. When trauma remains unresolved, it can emerge in adulthood as co-addictions, depression, anxiety, PTSD, intimacy issues, and even physical illnesses.

In The Soulful Journey of Recovery, esteemed clinician Tian Dayton offers a way out, drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience, her decades of work as a therapist, and her personal experience as a child growing up in an addicted household. With exercises, journaling prompts, and astute advice from the heart and the trenches of psycho-therapy, Dr. Dayton reveals both a path and a plan to heal.

Discover:

• Why there’s no “normal” for anyone with unresolved trauma—and how to take the first steps to recover.
• The hidden connection between trauma and addictions—and what you can do if you or someone you love is numbing their pain.
• How childhood traumas can make us physically sick as adults.
• How to tell if someone is “emotionally dyslexic”—with ways to build emotional sobriety and emotional literacy.
• Why our biggest triggers can become treasures that lead to a path of healing.

It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. Learn how to change the script with The Soulful Journey of Recovery.

From the Foreword by Gary Seidler:

For those who have grown up in a family with addiction, mental illness, or other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), the heartache and pain doesn’t end when they grow up and leave home. The legacy can last a lifetime and spread to generations unseen. In The Soulful Journey of Recovery, Dr. Tian Dayton details an action plan for readers based on the best research of the past two decades. Herself an adult child of an alcoholic, Dr. Dayton has devoted her life’s work to help others free themselves from the trauma they thought they had left behind; triggered pain and anger from the past that can derail the present or make relationships unnecessarily stressful. Powerful, focused exercises and meditations will put readers in touch with their creative, spontaneous side, leading to positive life changes. A journey of self discovery, the book presents hope circuits of positive psychology, showing readers how to take themselves from a place of pain to one of presence. Readers will discover that recovery is a self-affirming life adventure, and the kindest and best thing they can do for themselves and future generations.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Three-Time Breast Cancer Survivor Relates How Dreams Saved Her Life

Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos kept waking from dreams of monks who said she had cancer, but doctors could find nothing. In the end, her dreams were validated—she had breast cancer. Dr. Larry Burk followed his nagging suspicions that dreams could be important bellwethers of cancer and other serious diseases and conducted research that supports that premise. Now, O’Keefe-Kanavos and Burk have teamed up to produce Dreams That Can Save Your Life: Early Warning Signs of Cancer and Other Diseases.

Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos, the three-time Breast Cancer survivor employed a combination of dreams and conventional medicine to heal her body to beat back cancer—all three times. She was one of Dr. Burk’s Breast Cancer Dream Research Program research subjects at Duke. The resulting conclusions were published in various medical journals. O’Keefe-Kanavos has made appearances on TV’s Dr. OZ (https://kathleenokeefekanavos.com/dr-oz-show-appearance) and local television and radio shows.

In Dreams That Can Save Your Life, O’Keefe-Kanavos and Burk have collected not only the true accounts of people whose dreams were later validated by pathology but also the results of research studies that support the precognitive power of dreams. They also discuss how people who want to tap into the power of their dreams can learn to remember their dreams, learn their dream-language and keep a dream journal.

“We all have the power through dreams to transform our health, our business and our relationships for a better life,” says O’Keefe-Kanavos.
