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? SmartGurlz founder Sharmi Albrechtsen beat out 40,000 other entrepreneurs on ABC’s Shark Tank and negotiated with guest “shark” Richard Branson, before closing a deal with Daymond John on her line of groundbreaking toys that use 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

Tom Del Beccaro, The Divided Era Author, Long Ago Predicted Sanders’ Rise And Strong Super Tuesday Performance

Acclaimed author, speaker and former California Republican Party chair Tom Del Beccaro made a bold prediction almost exactly one year ago: Bernie Sanders would be the Democrat-ic nominee in 2020. In our country’s current anti-establishment, divided era, Sanders has gained momentum since 2016, and Del Beccaro expertly outlined five key differentiators that could very well propel Sanders to the 2020 Democrat nomination: https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/bernie-sanders-will-be-the-democratic-nominee-here-are-five-reasons-why.

“Going into Super Tuesday, of all the Democrats running right now, Sanders has the most committed supporters and the largest number of volunteers,” according to Del Beccaro.

Best known for his insightful commentary and public speaking on topics ranging from for-eign policy to economic reform, Del Beccaro has the unique ability to place our current times in the broader sweep of American and world history.

He does exactly that in his latest book, The Divided Era: How We Got Here and the Keys to America’s Reconciliation. That our country has become one obsessed with choosing sides is nothing new, he explains. Del Beccaro examines the three most divisive periods of our past and contrasts those eras with our country’s two most unifying periods. The result is a fasci-nating study of the history of political unity and division in the U.S., from the Revolution to the adoption of the Constitution; the Civil War through Reconstruction; and The Gilded Age to our present Divided Era.

By using the country’s past to inform a path forward, Del Beccaro is no stranger to seeing his predictions in the political arena become reality. In 2012, Tom correctly predicted the Demo-crats would lose over 60 House seats when others predicted more than 30 seats lost. He is poised to make hundreds of appearances on news programs as the 2020 election unfolds, sharing his insights and outlook on one of the most divisive, hotly contested elections in our nation’s history.

Thomas Del Beccaro is an acclaimed author, speaker and columnist for Fox News, Fox Business and the Epoch Times. The former Chairman of the California Republican Party and former U.S. Senate Candidate from California, Del Beccaro is also the author of The New Conservative Paradigm and is the publisher of PoliticalVanguard.com, where he and other columnists publish daily commentaries.

He makes hundreds of radio and TV appearances each year across the country that are heard and seen by millions. He has appeared on Fox & Friends, Fox Business News, Newsmax, OAN, the Wall Street Journal’s Opinion Journal and on KRON4 in the San Fran-cisco Bay Area. He has also appeared on the Fox, NBC, CBS and ABC affiliates in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Potentially Lifesaving Treatments That Doctors Don’t Always Want To Talk About For Chronic Conditions

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Potentially Lifesaving Treatments That Doctors Don’t Always Want To Talk About For Chronic Conditions

Far too many doctors dismiss treatments that are outside of the mainstream because they’ve not been subjected to clinical trials. But when the pharmaceutical companies themselves are conducting the trials on their own drugs, where’s the objectivity? Where’s the honesty?

Honest Medicine: Effective, Time-Tested, Inexpensive Treatments for Life-Threatening Diseases by Julia Schopick offers patient-based evidence to support the efficacy of four nontoxic, lifesaving treatments that have stood the test of time.

“I am the wife (now, widow) of a brain tumor patient, Tim Fisher, who survived for 15 years post-diagnosis, and 12 years beyond his doctors’ prognoses,” she explains. “Both Tim and I felt that his extra years of life were due to some really innovative treatments I found for him through my research.”

Julia’s “aha moment” came when doctors were unable to find a way to help Tim’s post-surgical suture line to heal. Through an integrative doctor friend, Julia discovered Silverlon, and it worked literally overnight. Unfortunately, none of Tim’s doctors wanted to learn more about this effective, innovative treatment.

“I decided that something really bad was going on in the world of conventional American medicine. So I set out to find other treatments to write about,” Julia said.

Honest Medicine offers valuable insights supported by patient experiences regarding four of these treatments:

• Silverlon—an antimicrobial dressing approved by the FDA in 1998 for all non-healing wounds.
• Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)—used since the mid-1980s to treat autoimmune diseas-es and some cancers.
• Intravenous Alpha Lipoic Acid—used since the mid-1970s to treat terminal liver dis-ease, and since the mid-1990s (with oral LDN) to treat some cancers.
• The Ketogenic Diet—used since the 1920s at institutions like Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic to treat pediatric epilepsy.

Written for those who are discerning and open to doing their own research, Honest Medicine offers hope and healing for those with chronic and life-threatening conditions who haven’t been helped by conventional medicine.

Julia Schopick is a bestselling author whose books include Honest Medicine: Effective, Time-Tested, Inexpensive Treatments for Life-Threatening Diseases, as well as The Power of Honest Medicine: LDN, an Inexpensive Alternative to the Costly, Toxic Medications Doctors Prescribe for Autoimmune and Other Diseases. She is a seasoned radio talk show guest who has appeared on over 200 shows and is often invited back. Through her writings and blog, HonestMedicine.com, Julia’s goal is to empower patients to make the best health choices for themselves and their loved ones by teaching them about little-known but promising treatments their doctors may not know about. Julia’s articles have been featured in numerous publications, including American Medical News (AMA), Alternative & Complementary Therapies, the British Medical Journal and the Chicago Sun-Times.

To Compete And Win In The Digital Era, Think Like Amazon

“What would Jeff Bezos do?” Since leaving Amazon to advise start-ups and corporations, John Rossman has been asked this question countless times by executives who want to know “the secret” behind Amazon’s historic success.

Rossman expertly responds in his step-by-step guide, Think Like Amazon: 50 ½ Ideas to Become a Digital Leader. Drawing from his experience as an Amazon executive, Rossman shows today’s business leaders how to think like Amazon, strategize like Bezos and beat the competition like nobody’s business.

“Every business leader wants to know how to be more customer-centric, how to operate better and how to innovate on a systematic basis,” Rossman said. “As a former Amazon executive and now as an advisor to many innovative companies, big and small, I get to see these concepts and practices put into place.”

Between the covers of Think Like Amazon, Rossman shows readers how to:

•Move forward to get back to Day 1―and change the status quo
•Become a platform company―with the right platform strategy
•Create customer obsession―and grant customers superpowers
•Experiment, fail, rinse and repeat
•Decentralize their way to digital greatness
•Master the magic of small autonomous teams
•Avoid the trap of past positions
•Make better and faster decisions
•And much more!

In addition to these targeted strategies, readers will get a rare glimpse inside how Jeff Bezos and Amazon take a remarkably consistent approach to innovate, explore new markets and spark new growth. Readers will understand the unique mindset and inner workings that drive Amazon’s operational excellence, from its ground-up approach to new digital markets to its out-of-the-box attitudes on innovation. Rossman also offers invaluable insights into the latest technologies, e-commerce marketing, online culture and IoT disruptions that only an Amazon insider would know.

Rossman has signed with 13 foreign publishers to release non-English versions of Think Like Amazon.

“The storytelling and credibility that Rossman brings translate not only to so many lan-guages, but also to the desire for business leaders across the globe to understand what they can take from Amazon’s management playbook into their own organizations,” added Jim Levine, Levine|Greenberg|Rostan Literary Agency.

Author and former Amazon executive John Rossman is a sought-after keynote speaker and business strategist. Rossman is most known for launching and scaling the Amazon Market-place, which Jeff Bezos called “one of his magical businesses,” accounting for over 50 per-cent of all Amazon units sold and shipped. Rossman also served as Director of Enterprise Services at Amazon.com under CEO Jeff Bezos. Since leaving Amazon, Rossman has ad-vised clients across most industry verticals on innovation, digital strategy and culture as Managing Partner of Rossman Partners.
