Mike Fuljenz Endorses Ralph Ross for 2013 ANA Board of Governors

January 23, 2013


Houston, Texas (PRWEB) January 23, 2013

Mike Fuljenz gave a speech at the 56th Annual Money Show in Houston, Texas and announced his support to back Ralph Ross Ph.D. candidacy for a position on the American Numismatic Association (ANA) board of governors. Fuljenz a long time recognized expert in the numismatic circles and an author of numerous books on American coinage has been a friend and admirer of Dr. Rosss contribution to the coin collecting community and his desire to teach others the fascinating hobby of kings.

Ralph Ross has stated one of his primary goals is advancing the knowledge of numismatics through educational, historical and scientific ways. As an example of Ross fulfilling that goal was in 2010 when he reached out to Johnny Duncan of U.S. Coins in Houston, Texas and Mike Fuljenz to donate 2010-dated silver American Eagles to be awarded to some high achievers of Ralph Rosss Students at Jack Yates High School in Houston. Mike Fuljenz said that, Ralph Ross, a physics and math teacher at the Title 1 School, used old coins to help students understand history, art, politics and science.

Mike Fuljenz, a former school teacher and principal, understands Rosss objective and the intrinsic value of introducing numismatics to students. “Rosss 35 years of national award winning involvement in the numismatic community and specifically his great contributions to the Greater Houston Coin Club makes him a perfect pick as a candidate for a position on the ANA board of governors, stated Mike Fuljenz.

Michael Fuljenz is a nationally-known rare coins and precious metals expert. His expertise has been used by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), United States Postal Service, United States Mint and the Texas Office of Consumer Credit Commissioner (OCCC). He is an award winning numismatic author of books and newsletters, a frequent interview guest on radio and TV news and personal finance programs, and a Beaumont, Texas community leader.

Harvard Health Publications and RosettaBooks Release Taming Your Childs Temper Tantrums

January 19, 2013


New York, NY (PRWEB) January 19, 2013

Any parent would be horrified if it was their child throwing a full out, screaming fit in the middle of the grocery store. Luckily, Taming Your Childs Temper Tantrums offers solutions for this all-too-common conundrum. From prevention to management, this eBook will guide parents to a more peaceful place with their child.

The Harvard Medical School Guide reminds parents that many tantrums can be stopped before they start by ensuring the childs needs for food, sleep, exercise, attention, and control are met. Also, reacting to an early tantrum might signal to the child that screams work, setting up a noisy and unpleasant cycle. Parents can set the stage for the child who is throwing the tantrum, so co-authors Victoria Rogers McEvoy, M.D., and Karen Weintraub examine telltale habits of participating adults.

Harvard Health Publications arranges the publication annually of more than a dozen full-length traditional books. This title is part of its first entry into digital originals.

We have a robust social media presence and thought this was the time to serve our constituencies with these short, accessible, informative eBooks, said Dr. Julie Silver, Chief Editor of Books for Harvard Health Publications.

EBook lines from major institutions are an effective way to reach millions of people worldwide, said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of leading independent eBook publisher RosettaBooks. We look forward to developing this line into a leader on health topics.

Victoria Rogers McEvoy, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and a Senior Pediatrician on the staff of Massachusetts General Hospital. She is the Medical Director and Chief of Pediatrics of Mass General West Medical Group. Dr. McEvoy is author of The 24/7 Baby Doctor, a Harvard Pediatrician Answers All Your Questions From Birth to One Year” and has written for “The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and numerous other publications.

Karen Weintraub is a longtime medical journalist who was on staff at The Boston Globe and has also written for USA Today, the BBC and other outlets. She has written two other Harvard Health Publications books, The Autism Revolution, with Dr. Martha Herbert, and Fast Minds, about adult ADHD, with Drs. Craig Surman and Timothy Bilkey.

Harvard Medical School was founded in 1782 and encompasses 18 affiliated hospitals with more than 11,000 faculty physicians. Harvard Health Publications is the media and publishing division of the Harvard Medical School. The goal of its publications is to bring people around the world the most current health information that is authoritative, trustworthy, and accessible.

This title is part of a series of Harvard Medical School Guides that are short, practical original works, organized by Harvard Health Publications and drawing on the resources of Harvard Medical School.

Change2aid’s Publishes a Detailed Article on Lance Armstrong and USADA’s Case Against Him Entitled The Curious Case of Lance Armstrong

January 17, 2013

Saint Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 17, 2013

Prior to the release of the final Harry Potter book, marketing companies ran a campaign entitled Severus Snape: Friend or Foe. Like Harry Potter, most of what has been written about Lance Armstrong is fiction. Is Lance Armstrong a hero or a villain? If one wants to know the truth, one has to start at the beginning of the story and really look at the USADA’s first hand evidence which sheds new light on Lance Armstrong and what he has been accused of doing. @Change2aid, Brian Mueller, and Lexstop Law Firm LLC have compiled a timely and relevant news article detailing the case against Armstrong based on the USADA’s investigation of him, the changing perceptions regarding Armstrong, and a call to action for Lance Armstrong and is releasing it for immediate publication. As it appears imminent that Lance Armstrong will confess to doping during his Tour de France winning years, it is important to read this article first so his words and admissions can be put in the proper context. Before watching the Oprah Winfrey interview with Lance Armstrong tonight and tomorrow, read the full article at http://lexstop.com/the-curious-case-of-lance-armstrong-by-brian-mueller/ first. An excerpt from the story is written here to pique interest.
