Green Buildings Are Not Sustainable, says Janis Birkeland

MELBOURNE, Australia -- According to Dr Janis Birkeland, the originator of net-positive design, while sustainable 'green' buildings are making great strides, they still do more damage than no building at all.

"Each green building increases the problem," she says. "Even though there are numerous sustainable building initiatives and processes that purport to contribute to sustainability, the industry is still analyzing and assessing all the wrong things in the wrong ways. For example, there are dozens of things fundamentally wrong with green building rating tools."

However, Birkeland also says that construction, which causes so much environmental destruction, could actually save nature and deliver social and environmental justice.

"True sustainability is possible and affordable, but not if we use the same strategies."

Dr Birkeland's new book, "Net-Positive Design and Sustainable Urban Development" (ISBN 9780367258566), explains why current theories and practices are not effective. It systematically dissects these failings and reverses their underlying concepts.

The book builds on this critique to show how urban development can give back more than it takes over its lifecycle. It provides examples to show that development can increase - rather than just repair, restore or regenerate - overall social, ecological and economic sustainability.

"Technically speaking, in a net-positive city, nature's 'positive' ecological footprint would exceed humanity's 'negative' ecological footprint, relative to pre-urban conditions.

"Positive Development theory has led to new methods, strategies and tools that enable professionals and students to design (and assess) net-positive buildings and environments that increase the natural and social life support systems," said Dr Birkeland.

Net-Positive Design presents game-changing sustainable planning analyses, a collaborative design process and a free STARfish computer app. The STARfish enables designers to go beyond zero (or recycling systems) to create designs that yield net-positive environments. It defines new criteria and benchmarks based on fixed, objective biophysical conditions, rather than relative to conventional (unsustainable) buildings or current conditions.

"The new approach not only up-ends building assessment tools, it integrates assessment and measurement with design. It synthesises the 'hard' technical and 'soft' creative dimensions in planning, decision making and design."

Creating and measuring 'beyond zero' cumulative impacts is no easy task but, thanks to Dr Birkeland's insights and dedication to sustainable development, it has now been done and is available around the world for educators and professionals alike.

Authoritative comments about Net-Positive Design:

"From the author who developed Positive Development theory comes another tour de force - a delightful guide for those of us disappointed with the direction of conventional approaches to wicked problems." - Mirek Dymitrow, Lund University and University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

"By re-engineering our approach to urban development, Birkeland reveals how cities could become our most powerful resource in reversing the trends associated with climate change...Essential reading for all decision makers." - Dr Kathi Holt, architect and strategic urban designer.

New Book, ‘Tenacity’ is a Story of Courage and Resilience in the Face of Adversities

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Veena Sharma is an Indo-Fijian author, who has released her memoir "Tenacity" (ISBN: 978-1643883861). It is a story of risk, courage, and determination. Ultimately, it's a story of the human spirit's triumph over fear. Born into poverty, uprooted from her homeland, forced to marry a stranger, subjected to physical and emotional abuse.

Veena Sharma's spirit demanded that she risk the emotional pain of ostracism and realize her right to determine the colors of her own story.

It is her story of embracing risk and change and learning to dance with them. Beginning with a painting of life in Fiji that cradles readers so softly that they wish that they had been born there, readers then accompany her on an adventure to Canada as her family relocates. There is no way to grasp her family's insistence she marry a stranger. Her parents, victims of cultural conformity, insist that she stay with him regardless of the physical and mental abuse he inflicts. Veena's choices inspire readers to deny fear it's power and to embrace change so they can become the authors of their own stories.

"From my perspective, every experience and every person we meet serves a purpose in our life, either good or bad. Your experience in life, including mistakes, struggles, and failures, doesn't have to define who you are, but instead, it can indeed lead you to discover your true self," says author Veena Sharma.

Veena Sharma is an overcomer who currently lives in Ft Myers, Florida. In this debut memoir, she shares her life journey, struggles, accomplishments, determination, and perseverance. Veena wishes to inspire, motivate, and encourage people and to evoke higher frequencies of hope.

She hopes her book will heal and transform others who are tired of living with woes or on plateau. Veena's greatest satisfaction is living life making a difference.

In her memoir, she talks in detail about her childhood in a remote place in Fiji Islands, her adulthood in Vancouver, Canada, her struggles and her accomplishments. The book also contains golden nuggets as an inspirational message for the readers at the end of each chapter.

Veena Sharma was born in a very remote place in Fiji Islands called Dawasamu. She lived there in her early years and moved to Vancouver, BC Canada at age 16 with her family. Veena lived in Vancouver until age 39 and moved to USA after getting her BSN degree from University of Victoria, Victoria BC Canada. Veena's passion for advancement in life gave her opportunity to live in California, Virginia, Illinois and brought her to her final destination, Ft Myers, Florida.

Veena completed her Master's Degree in Nursing in 2009 from Walden University. Currently Veena works as an oncology nurse navigator. Veena's passion for creative writing began when she took many English courses while she was attending her nursing program. She excelled in all her English classes. One of Veena's goal in life is to empower, inspire and motivate others.

Her first book, "Tenacity: Penciling the Journey and Inking the Destiny" is a memoir of a woman's courage and resilience in the face of adversities. Veena takes her readers on the journey from Fiji to her final destination Florida. She talks about her struggles, sacrifices, accomplishment and hopes that it will help readers who are in plateau and need help to overcome some of the barriers in their life.

Michael Jackson Tells His Own Story in Interactive Audio Book Filled with Intimate Voicemail Recordings

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Dieter Wiesner, Michael Jackson's former manager and friend, had many voice recordings from the pop icon, and sought a way to share them with others. He wanted people to know the real Michael Jackson. When he met Yusuf Jah, a published author, he was inspired to write a book where Jackson actually 'told his own story.' "Michael Jackson: The Real Story" (ISBN: 978-1732181397), co-authored by Wiesner and Jah and published by Kingdomedia, is the result of that desire. It gives readers a firsthand account of what Jackson was really like along with some astonishing plans he had in the works - plans that he hoped would change the world.

Through a series of narratives and numerous previously unreleased voicemail messages, readers and listeners now have access to new information that provides a deeper insight into the visionary, business man, father and family man. They'll gain a greater breadth of understanding regarding what Jackson really hoped to achieve in what he thought remained of his life.

Wiesner's collection of Jackson's personal data is impressive. He spent years traveling and living with him so the information he has to share is invaluable in so many ways. He wants people to know Jackson the way he did.

"His memory, his legacy and his dear family all deserve to hear the perspective of someone who was around him and who he trusted within his inner circle," Wiesner says. "He shared things with me that he shared with no one else."

Thanks to publishing audio technology, readers will get to hear the "King of Pop" talk about everything from making business acquisitions and partnering with Disney and Marvel Comics to create a universe of entertainment that would rival any other. He wanted to see more people of color in the board room and hoped to inspire that to happen.

"Sadly, his life was cut short and he was never able to carry out these second phase-of-life plans that would have made him one of the wealthiest people on the planet," Wiesner says. "His plans could have affected not just pop culture, but the world."

In addition to messages about business ventures, the human side of Jackson is touched on too - the one that yearned to have a simpler life where he could do everyday things without being held accountable to millions. Going out for a pizza or sipping a soda for most are non-eventful moments. For Jackson, they were unforgettable.

"We hope this book resurrects the spirit of Jackson," Jah says. "He's no longer part of the physical world, but his passion and desire to implement change certainly is."

"Michael Jackson: The Real Story" is currently available on Audible, Apple Books, Barnes & Noble and more. It's available as an audio book, in print (with audio transcripts) and as an ebook.

Atlanta Businessman Reveals Success Secrets in Debut Book

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Atlanta businessman, personal coach and author, Khigh Shotwell, founder of Puppetless World, has revealed the formula for his success in his debut book, "The Game is to be Sold, Not Told" (ISBN: 978-1734711400).

"The Game is to be Sold, Not Told" is a dynamic resource that teaches the art of programming as it relates to the human mind alongside valuable tools and techniques that one can utilize to take control of his/her life. But that's not all. The guiding principles shared by the author offers a glimpse into the spiritual world and how to harness the power of the mind to create the life desired.

Shotwell is a true testament to the authenticity of his philosophy that one can achieve anything with the right mindset. He went from being a child raised in a good environment to becoming a thug who was imprisoned for multiple felony convictions. His life took a turn for the better when he began to understand the power of the mindset coupled with good work ethics.

Today, Shotwell is the proud owner of a fragrance company called 6th Scents Work and the Founder of Puppetless World - a spiritual entity focused on the spiritual development for the purposes of influencing the physical reality. He is also an avid traveler who takes several international and domestic vacations every year with his family.

"The Game is to be Sold, Not Told" is Shotwell's debut book; however, the clarity, authority and depth of his writing gives no indication to his experience.

"I want to show how the human Mindset has been influenced and programmed by the hierarchy (Puppet Masters) to think and behave in certain ways," says Shotwell. "I wanted to show that with the proper understanding of how the mind works as it relates to its environment and universe that most people can create the reality that they want to live in."

In a pre-release of the book, one reader said: "There are many books that discuss the Law of Attraction but not many take the perspective of breaking it down and showing how it relates to people of color. This book is comprehensive, and readers will be inspired by the guiding principles to improve their lives."

The concepts introduced in Shotwell's book are easy to understand and will resonate with the Average Joe dreaming of success but limited by his present circumstances and resources.

"The Game is to be Sold, Not Told" is available in paperback format for a retail price of $20.

LTC NEWS Acquisition Anticipates Growth and Expansion

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Matt McCann, a nationally-known veteran of the long-term care (LTC) insurance industry, announces the formation of LTC NEWS, LLC after acquiring the online asset - ltcnews.com.

Previously owned by publisher Chip Ramsey, the acquisition includes all the websites and social media platforms operated by LTC NEWS and its corresponding editorial content.

Formed in July 2015, LTC NEWS is an online resource for long-term care planning, health and retirement issues to help consumers plan for and better understand the financial impacts of aging.

LTC NEWS, LLC plans to expand its editorial content and resources and to offer a full range of unique digital advertising and marketing opportunities to reach adults aged 40 and up. It will also provide creative resources to design advertising to help businesses effectively reach their target audience.

It will also offer sponsored-content opportunities to allow a company, health care provider, or insurance or financial professional to engage readers and drive traffic to their website while delivering on their marketing objectives.

"LTC NEWS will continue to offer news and informational resources to help American families plan for a successful future retirement," Matt McCann, who will work as interim president and CEO, says. "I look forward to working with the current staff and to adding new staff to help us grow in the years ahead."

Prior to acquiring LTC NEWS, McCann consulted for LTC NEWS, so he's intimately familiar with its operation and assets. The company will also design websites and social media platforms for home health agencies, adult day care centers, assisted living facilities, memory care facilities, nursing homes and other businesses related to providing long-term health care services.

LTC NEWS will provide similar services for insurance and financial professionals looking for quality websites and social media platforms to help them engage their clients.

"Many insurance and financial professionals want affordable state-of-the-art websites and social media platforms," McCann explains. "LTC NEWS will provide these resources so these professionals can have a compelling Internet and social media presence."

LTC NEWS will continue to publish articles at no charge from expert guest columnists and these authors will gain outstanding exposure, website backlinks and traffic to their websites. Specific guidelines will limit the amount of advertising content in those articles.

Sponsored-content articles will allow a targeted message to promote a product or service and drive traffic to a website while providing useful information on a specific topic.

"We're striving to provide an exceptional user experience and brand that users remember and trust. Answering consumers' questions accurately, clearly and quickly is essential to LTC NEWS," Daniel Pope, who will lead the website development and creative team, says. "We'll also analyze consumer behavior at scale in large datasets to help determine which topics, resources and advertisements are most relevant to consumers."

Pope says the goal is to present the website visitor with relevant opportunities to learn something new. The overall website experience will enhance user activity and increase the time spent on the website.

"The time invested between the user and the LTC NEWS brand will foster a culture of trust which benefits both consumers and advertisers. Our advertising partners can take advantage of targeting specific topics or resources within their niche that our consumers actively seek," Pope says.

The company is currently seeking an entrepreneurial sales manager to lead its nationwide sales effort. This individual should have a solid knowledge of Internet advertising and an understanding of the long-term health care industry.

Interested individuals can forward a resume and cover letter to Lori Urbanick at: lori.urbanick@ltcnews.com.

LTC NEWS will be operated independently from McCann's firm, McCann Insurance Services, Inc., and the company will be headquartered in offices located in Countryside, Illinois, and Columbus, Ohio.

Aaron Ozee Honors George Floyd and Black Lives Matter with ‘Regulus’ Prequel

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Aaron Ozee, celebrity author of the bestselling children's book, "Regulus" (ISBN: 9781387010790), and praised director of the Regulus movie, has started writing the rumored prequel. Ozee has launched the project ahead of schedule in hopes of supporting the Black Lives Matter community and preserve the memory of George Floyd.

Ozee was heartbroken upon watching the abhorrent footage captured at the scene where George Floyd was murdered, and witnessing the civilian protests sweep nations overnight, he was struck with the passion to act before more innocent lives are ravaged with racism.

"Upon hearing the shocking news about what happened to George Floyd, my heart stopped. How could Derek Chauvin, a police officer tasked with safeguarding the public, enact such violence on this man? Racism is the virus. Not the people it harms. We created this evil and we have the strength to cease the madness. My pledge to ensure the balance of this peaceful crusade will be to donate the proceeds of my untitled Regulus prequel to Black Lives Matter in their entirety. However, an extension of my pledge will be to dedicate my untitled Regulus prequel to George Floyd to grant him the future which the Minneapolis police department took from him," said Ozee this morning.

Ozee has been known for contributing the fruit born from the success of his written creations to societal movements, charitable organizations, and universal catastrophes. When Ozee premiered the Regulus movie on Amazon Prime, months before the promoted release, Ozee agreed to 50% of the proceeds earned from his debut film being donated to families struck with hardship due to COVID-19 for the remainder of 2020. Ozee has made travel arrangements for upcoming protests across Chicagoland to assist in the execution of demonstrations and provide other attendees with comfort in sight of aggressive law enforcement.

Ozee claims the untitled Regulus prequel will be on track for release later this year or early 2021 and negotiations with Bizarros Studio for making the untitled Regulus prequel into a television show are underway. Actors, musicians, influencers, athletes, political leaders, motivational speakers, and comedians with high regard in the industry such as Paula Deen, Akon, Drake Bell, and Tony Hawk have appreciated the infamous rat king.

Poetry Reawakens Soul, Something Desperately Needed in Our Uncertain Times

LAKESIDE, Mont. -- Eight One 818 Publishing announces a new book release, "Reimagining In 2020: Poems: First Reflections" (ISBN: 978-1733941235) by Laura Keller-Wolff. Response to a world pandemic comes in many forms. Sheltering in place, one poet finds deeper vision facing the urgencies of radical change.

"Reimagining In 2020" is author Laura Keller-Wolff's second book in a series on the theme of reimagining, here she challenges readers to reach for the poetics of heart and soul in times of extreme instability. These times push us to the edge of every sense perception, where steps toward a new world are inches away. Yet, we need to create a bridge from volatility to the new sources of depth, symbolism and non-literal footholds to carry our world beyond. That bridge is poetry: A sister to art, a brother to peaceful co-existence. We find a deeper, broader lens through poetry, the opportunity to reimagine with 2020 vision.

"The place for the poetic arts is now-more than ever before," Keller-Wolff says. "Poetry provides a timeless connection to our humanness, as reflected in lines from The Doorman - a poem honoring one of New York City's first COVID-19 victims: "Some people ripen this way, / so full of the earth and the life / that make all of us real, / with work that does like the seed, / carrying the sweetness of character - / hands waiting even before you arrive."

Poetry meets landscape where Keller-Wolff makes her home, in the Rocky Mountains of Montana. She is the founder and director of Spiralation, Inc., managing The Mural-Poetry Project-which united youth and elders, generating 14 murals featuring local history, art and poetry, and the Dream-Well Project-generating poetry and art from dream analysis.

"Poetry provides a timeless connection to our humanness, as reflected in lines from The Doorman - a poem honoring one of New York City's first COVID-19 victims: "Some people ripen this way, / so full of the earth and the life / that make all of us real, / with work that does like the seed, / carrying the sweetness of character - / hands waiting even before you arrive."

Poetry meets landscape where Keller-Wolff makes her home, in the Rocky Mountains of Montana. She is the founder and director of Spiralation, Inc., managing The Mural-Poetry Project-which united youth and elders, generating 14 murals featuring local history, art and poetry, and the Dream-Well Project-generating poetry and art from dream analysis.
