Launch Pad Publishing Releases Energy and Longevity Book Bringing Biohacking to The Masses

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Launch Pad Publishing is releasing a groundbreaking new book about health, energy and longevity by biochemist, Registered Dietitian, sports nutritionist and formulation scientist Shawn Wells. The author's experiences overcoming a range of personal health battles led to the writing of the book, which supplements scientific research with his own personal experiences.

"The ENERGY Formula: Six Life Changing Ingredients to Unleash Your Limitless Potential" outlines Wells' own system for living a healthy, balanced life full of energy, and is broken into six core sections: Experiment, Nutrition, Exercise, Routine, Growth and Your Tribe. Within each section, Wells details his lifelong dream of becoming a health and fitness expert and a "master formulator" in the nutrition industry-along with the many professional and personal hurdles he had to clear to get there.

Each section covers its own aspect of Wells' "ENERGY Formula," and incorporates clinical and scientific research to offer readers guidance on strategies, products and philosophies they can use to improve their own vitality. While much of the advice is pragmatic and grounded, the latter chapters also touch on a more holistic approach to health, incorporating positive mindset and healthy relationships.

"Shawn Wells is a highly-respected name in the world of nutrition and supplementation," says publisher Anna David, "but this book offers readers an entirely different side of him. The science and the health tips are as in-depth as any book you'll read, but Shawn also opens up about his own struggles with eating disorders and health issues in a way that will help a lot of readers, particularly men who might be afraid to speak up. Within the world of biohacking, his story and his wisdom are a breath of fresh air."

While biohacking or health optimization has sometimes earned a reputation as something niche or extreme, Shawn uses "The ENERGY Formula" to bring his decades of insider wisdom to the masses in a way anyone can understand. Even as the book explores groundbreaking new ideas in health and nutrition, it offers actionable ideas on how to defeat fatigue, depression and weight challenges with compassion and humor.

"The ENERGY Formula: Six Life Changing Ingredients to Unleash Your Limitless Potential" is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, among many other outlets.

InVideo Launches IVA – The Only Voice Assistant Artificial Intelligence Editor in Existence That’s Set to Revolutionize Video and Film Creation Globally

MUMBAI, India -- InVideo, a leading video content creation platform, today announced the launch of its groundbreaking AI technology called IVA, that's about to bring content creators and film and video makers into the 22nd Century.

Following in the footsteps of Siri and Alexa before her, the tool has been created using the speech and thought patterns of the human brain so users can create videos without lifting a finger.

It's been created by InVideo, the video editing, and creation platform.

IVA (Intelligent Video Assistant). is a video editing feature powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and is based on the platform's inbuilt assistant.

The latest addition will allow InVideo users to edit videos with just their voice.

Commenting at the launch, the CEO of InVideo, Sanket Shah said: "We are excited to introduce a feature that will change the way our users edit their content on InVideo.

"It's a one-of-a-kind AI video maker that will operate on the voice command, thus making video editing possible without lifting a finger."

He adds: "InVideo has one vision - make video creation accessible to the world, no matter where you live, what device you use, and what Internet speed you have. With IVA, we are many steps closer to our north star metric."

Prila Loof who works with the AI Technology Division of InVideo said: "IVA works by using machine-learning algorithms and neural networking that are a direct copy of the human brain's pathways.

"Once you have given InVideo permission to use the microphone you can speak directly to IVA. Within a couple of minutes, the video is created."

With the help of the voice assistant video editor, users can now easily create, edit, add music, define speed, suggest the most relevant templates, and create many such voice commands, thus proving to be their best partner in video editing.

For instance, users can just tell IVA to suggest the best audio for their created video with a simple voice command such as, "Hey IVA, find me the best audio track for this promo video", and their work is done.

The company has already rolled out a BETA version of its service, which is running sign-ups for its launch until midday Indian Standard time on April 1, 2021.

Steve Gast, from Chicago, Illinois, was one of the first to use the "look no hands" platform. He said: "It's so fast! This is such a crazy feature. It's going to change the game."

Teresa Sanderson, from the U.S., created a baby shower announcement in a matter of seconds. She said: "It's like she can read my mind. It's like you have an assistant with you all the time."

Bridgetti Lim Banda from Cape Town, Western Cape, was one of the first to use the new "look no hands" video platform. She said: "It's exciting. I was so impressed. All I needed to do was export it and talk to the app. It's groundbreaking stuff."

David Withington, from Wigan, England, used it to make a birthday video for his wife: "It's brilliant. I can't wait for the new video platform to go live so everyone can use it. I'm really chuffed with this and I think my wife will as well. It's like we're in the future. It's a magnificent feature."

The latest addition takes the user experience a step forward, with a memory feature. Users can now have their favorite fonts, alignment styles, font colors, and all other preferences saved in IVA's memory, by just telling her once.

She has skilled machine-learning algorithms and neural networking helps her generate a better experience for her users.

IVA's intelligence was created using data from over 2 million of InVideo's current users, and 10 million created videos.

It has 10,000 font style choices, 10 platform preferences, proficiency calculations, and targets.

She filters the information into thousands of lines of code that are constantly updating with every action of her users, to make their experience smoother and faster than ever.

Users can get on the waitlist for early access to the feature at until midday April 1st Indian Standard time.

Travel Back in Time on a Virtual 3D Tour to the Famed Roman Temples of Baalbek

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The famous temple complex of Baalbek, the ancient Heliopolis in Lebanon, is one of the largest Roman religious sites in the world and part of the world heritage. Baalbek has a rich history that goes back to around 8,000 BC. The remaining six pillars of the Temple of Jupiter are now a landmark of Lebanon. On March 31, the "Baalbek Reborn: Temples" app from Flyover Zone will launch using the latest technology to reconstruct what today's ruins looked like in the past. On a journey through time, the virtual tour brings this heritage back to life and shows the Temple of Jupiter Heliopolitanus, the Temple of Bacchus, the Temple of Venus and the Temple of the Muses.

This extraordinary experience is the result of a collaboration between the Lebanese General Department of Antiquities (DGA), the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) and Flyover Zone, a US-based company that specializes in virtual time travel to cultural heritage sites. Experts from the DAI who have been working on the site since 1998 provided the scientific basis for the 3D reconstructions. By using the latest technology, Flyover Zone succeeded in creating an impressive experience taking users on a journey into the past.

"What's fascinating about Baalbek is not only the Roman temples, but also its almost 10,000-year history," stresses Margarete van Ess, director of the Orient Department of the German Archaeological Institute and longstanding head of scientific research in Baalbek. "As an archaeologist, finds and research results give me images in my mind of what this special place looked like at that time. It's fantastic that the temples are now given shape in the app and can be viewed by people all over the world!" says van Ess.

The depth and relevance of the scientific knowledge conveyed via the app makes Baalbek Reborn: Temples unique. Users can choose to move either virtually through today's excavation site or through the digital reconstruction of the ancient religious sites. The audio track, optionally in Arabic, French, English or German, provides scientifically sound knowledge and explanations. There are 38 stops distributed across the temple complexes, presented by the researchers of the DAI. This makes the app equally interesting for laypeople and experts.

Bernard Frischer, founder and president of Flyover Zone stated: "For Flyover Zone, this project has been a dream come true. In addition to the sheer size of the Baalbek sanctuary, its cultural significance cannot be exaggerated. In antiquity, people from distant points of the empire consulted the oracle of Baalbek, and we even have records of emperors doing so, too. Now we are using what we learned to bring Baalbek into the classrooms and living rooms of students and the general public. We hope that thousands of people around the world will download the virtual tour and use it to whet their appetite to visit the site when the COVID-19 pandemic passes and international travel is possible again."

"The Baalbek Reborn: Temples" virtual tour is provided free of charge thanks to the generosity of Bassam Alghanim who donated the funds in loving memory of his parents, Yusuf and Ilham Alghanim. The DAI and Flyover Zone thus contribute to promoting a deeper understanding of the importance of the ancient temples, making scientific knowledge more widely accessible and promoting Baalbek as an important tourist site.

The virtual tour can be downloaded for use on smartphones and tablets (Android, iOS), PCs and laptops (Macintosh, Windows 10) as well as VR headsets (Oculus Go, Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift-S, HTC Vive).

Book Release: How to Learn to Laugh at Humanity’s Self-Destruction

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Azaria Press has released "WE'RE DOOMED! A Humorous Exploration of Humanity's War Against Life." Award-winning humor writer Scott Erickson turns his attention to the most humorous issue of our time: Humanity's impending self-destruction!

Perhaps you've wondered whether there's a single root cause of our impending social-economic-environmental collapse. Guess what? There is!

The common cause is: Humanity is at war against life.

To examine this bold claim, Erickson spends a bit of time exploring the phenomenon of life. If we're at war with it, shouldn't we know what it is we're at war with? Also, it would probably be a good idea to know what life is, in case if we ever got the crazy idea to live in harmony with it or something like that.

The book includes the answer to the question: "WHAT IS THIS 'LIFE' THING, ANYWAY?"

The book also includes retirement advice, personal growth tips, and a great recipe for whiskey sours.

We ‘Self Talk’ Because We Are Born With Three Individual Personalities

ISANTI, Minn. -- Sidekick Services Corporation has published a new book titled "The Theory of Personality," subtitled "The Three Of Us," which identifies an ancient belief that all of us are born with three individual personalities.

"Every human is born with three individual personalities," says author Edward Shively. "The dialogue between these personalities is commonly referred to as 'self-talk.' Although psychologists and psychiatrists agree that we all dialogue with ourselves on a daily basis, the difficult question to answer is, who does the talking, and who does the listening?"

While managing a community service program for juvenile offenders, the author discovered that criminal behavior increases as self-talk decreases. "The Theory Of Personality" documents this discovery while connecting it to an ancient belief that each of us are born with three individual personalities.

Self-talk empowers all three of our individual personalities to share control of daily choices, which promotes our own problem-solving skills. In the case presented in this book, extenuating circumstances blocked juvenile offenders from practicing self-talk dialogue, thereby stunting the growth of their remaining personalities.

When a personality is stunted, it stops maturing, evidenced by adults who appear responsible, but consistently act irresponsible. When an adult constantly acts like a child, or a child constantly acts like a baby, it is highly likely that two of that individual's personalities are being dominated by the third personality, which results in subtle paranoia which often manifests itself as severe manipulation, and in extreme cases, insanity. The best indicator of a dominant personality is the experience of an overwhelming circumstance.

"The Theory of Personality" defines the roles of all three of our individual personalities, including basic management strategies for shutting down a dominant personality. Each book in the series will identify personality traits in order to reinstate natural power sharing characteristics between all three personalities.

Although these books are designed for all ages, they specifically target the most vulnerable age group. The most vulnerable age group includes anyone, at any age, whose intellectual growth is being stunted by their own dominating personality.

Published by Sidekick Publishing, a division of Sidekick Services Corporation in Isanti, Minnesota.

Available on Amazon, as an eBook ($5.29) or paperback ($19.77) at the following link:

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Sugarpeel announces newest Deliberately Considerate™ digital publication recognizing people trying to change the world for the better, featuring Native American Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Onondaga Nation and international advocate for our Mother Earth, and Indigenous rights.

Tom Szaky, CEO, envisioned TerraCycle twenty years ago - today it's a global recycling leader in 20 countries "eliminating the idea of waste" through reusable consumer packaging with partners like Puretto, Tide and Haagen-Dazs instead of landfilling it to create a circular economy and zero waste.

"Our ability to survive comes down to sharing," said Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Onondaga Nation. "This is a fundamental principal of the Haudenosaunee. Share what you have - this is meant broadly, and have respect for the individual, family, community and the world."

"All of our featured companies are showing respect for our world in very meaningful ways," Lyons said.

Ashley Basla, Editor-in-Chief, Deliberately Considerate™, said, "The overarching theme is the effects of climate change, which includes the pandemic being felt by all, some disproportionately more than others." It's impossible not to reassess our values. Now is the time to act. Now is the time to focus on the serious, not the superficial.

"We included B Corps, companies that are certified by B Lab, a leader in economic systems change."

B Corporations are certified and recognized as new kinds of businesses. They balance purpose and profits, doing good for people and the planet, including Barnana. They upcycled 100 million pounds of ugly bananas into snacks, taking a bite out of the 1.3 billion tons of food wasted every year, while supporting sustainable products that have a minimal adverse effect on the environment.

We recognize and honor five diverse women lead businesses, uplifting other women, helping society, and the planet, such as Amy Denet Deal. Amy is a fashion designer that returned to her native Navajo roots, restoring, repurposing and upcycling vintage textiles, while supporting vital Native American necessities most take for granted.

About Sugarpeel

Sugarpeel was founded in 2011 as a lifestyle website featuring sustainable fashion brands, healthy recipes, product reviews, and insightful interviews showcasing successful women business owners.

Sugarpeel created and launched Deliberately Considerate in 2018, but it was a lifetime journey of purpose. Deliberately Considerate is dedicated to the brand's formidable pillars: sustainability, healthy living, socially and environmentally minded companies and women led businesses.

The Lower Third Productions, LLC Presents: Today Show Host Craig Melvin Remembers Late Brother in Interview – Touching (and Hilarious) Final Moments Revealed

WESTPORT, Conn. -- On December 9 of 2020, Craig Melvin, a news anchor on the Today Show, lost his forty-three-year-old brother, Lawrence Meadows to colon cancer. Weeks later, Craig sat down with "Ten Minutes With Brian Kelsey" talk show host, Brian Kelsey, for an off-the-wall interview, oddly enough, in Brian's driveway. The result was nothing short of heartwarming and surprisingly humorous as well.

Prior to the interview, as Brian took care of some unfinished business, Craig warmed up outside, literally. He was accommodated with a lawn chair and glass of bourbon next to a makeshift fire pit out on the driveway. Craig didn't seem to mind.

Normally, Brian conducts his interviews in the garage. But, due to COVID-19 precautions, the driveway was deemed to be a safer setting.

Initially, Craig and Brian swapped COVID-19 stories and Brian brought up an emotional moment for Craig concerning the virus that was caught on tape. Craig called himself a 'mush-ball' and commented that his personal belief is that if the news doesn't affect a journalist, they need to look for another job. He admitted to, at times, wearing his heart on his sleeves.

After throwing another log on the fire (again, literally), it was onto a deeper, more serious subject, the death of Craig's older brother who was a minister. While Craig was notably shaken by the loss as the two were extremely close, he managed to recall some very funny stories which he told. Through his sorrow, Craig has not lost his sense of humor. One gets the feeling that is exactly how his late brother would want it to be.

Craig has been a co-host for the Today Show since 2018. His wife, Lindsay, is also a journalist. They have two young sons. Prior to the Today Show, Craig worked at MSNBC and other television networks as well. He is especially close to fellow journalist Bryant Gumbel.

Brian founded his quirky talk show, "Ten Minutes With Brian Kelsey", when he turned a crazy, but innovative, idea into reality. It all began when Brian started working for Howard Stern as a writer, producer, and the actual 'voice' of Stern. Even though he was the host of a four-hour regularly scheduled talk show on Martha Stewart Living Radio, had a short running spot with a home renovation show on NBC, and has made numerous appearances on shows like the Today Show, the former radio show host, craved more. One thing led to another until a dream was born. He debuted a one-of-a-kind celebrity-ish talk show in the confines of his garage, next to his washer and dryer. Not surprisingly, the show took off.

While the interview is not the only one Craig granted on his brother's death and is certainly not the only show Brian has filmed with a celebrity, the chemistry between the host and guest is definitely present throughout the time they shared, sparking a unique revelation of impromptu bittersweet memories.

All the Lost Girls Productions Launches Trailer for ‘Uneven Ground: The Melissa Witt Story’

BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- All the Lost Girls Productions launches trailer for "Uneven Ground: The Melissa Witt Story."

On December 1, 1994, Melissa Witt was abducted from Bowling World in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The community and authorities frantically searched for the 19-year-old college student for 45 days until the unthinkable happened: On January 13, 1995, Melissa's lifeless, nude body was discovered in the Ozark National Forest - roughly 50 miles from the abduction site. Melissa Witt had been strangled to death.

For over two decades, the kidnapping and murder of Melissa Witt has remained unsolved.

An Arkansas Documentary team hopes to change that by turning the case upside down with their upcoming film - "Uneven Ground: The Melissa Witt Story."

"We have worked on this documentary project for just over five years," explained LaDonna Humphrey, Executive Producer.

"Law enforcement has given us unprecedented access to the case files and we have had the distinct pleasure of working closely with both the current and retired detectives on this case. It is our hope that this documentary will shed light on Melissa's case and that her killer will be found," said Humphrey.

The documentary trailer was launched on their website at:

The group also runs a Facebook page:

"Uneven Ground: The Melissa Witt Story" is slated to launch on May 31, 2021.
