‘The New American State’ Is Now Available in Kindle Unlimited

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- HC Publishing today announced that "The New American State" (ISBN: 978-1735716008), a book written by political scientist Dimitar Avramov that explains the changes in American politics and the Western form of government, has been made available to Amazon Kindle Unlimited subscribers.

"The New American State" (TNAS) was released as an e-book on Amazon in October 2020. TNAS has outlined and predicted the American institutional system's conflicts caused by a specific state of politics and government - a governance by radicalized minorities.

"The New American State" provides answers to some of the most critical questions of the new decade - How will the lives of the next few American generations change? Are we at a turning point in the political history of the United States, one in which people in overall, be they "ordinary" or "extraordinarily empowered," will make fewer and fewer decisions? To what extent are political and social processes objective, and to what extent can we govern them? What depends on us?

"There are practically no conditions for reaching consensus. In a public environment characterized by a growing political polarization, the American political system produces a specific state of politics - a governance by radicalized minorities," says the author Dimitar Avramov.

The book describes an ongoing political trend - the traditional broad-based political process based on ideas, concepts, and ideologies is transforming into identity politics. It explains that the different ethnic communities turn into political enclaves, abandon the traditional forms of political representation and use their identity to establish their political statuses. The author describes that all forms of identity - race, ethnicity, religion, social and gender identity - have a growing influence in the process of establishing alliances in American politics.

"Any political alliances and movements based on identity politics, especially such that challenge the cultural foundations of Western civilization, increase the tensions in American politics," says Avramov. He adds that, "Although the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects citizens' religious beliefs and free speech, there is no constitutional amendment that protects broad-based politics based on values and ideas from being corrupted by identity politics."

He asks: "What would happen if any form of identity that has arisen and developed outside the Western world made a claim to influence American politics and the Western form of government in general?" Avramov focuses the readers' attention on some fundamental issues and ongoing social trends in American politics.

"To what extent is it possible for American democracy to be sustainable if the society is divided into political statuses based on identity? What if each of them is structured like a separate social class, with its own extreme political views about the state of the American union? Could the American society reach consensuses on the most important issues if there were irreconcilable conceptual differences in the worldview of its citizens and their political statuses as a result of identity politics?

"Do we not mistakenly assume that the existence of freedom and the constitutional protection of the individual will naturally change people's political values, regardless of the political, cultural, or religious tradition they belong to? Is it possible - with an intensive change in the ethnic composition of the society and under the influence of different cultural, religious, and political and traditions - for the United States to come to a point when it would change its system of government?"

Omaha-Based Apartment Developers Complete Their First 1,000 Apartment Units

OMAHA, Neb. -- SB Communities, LLC, owned by Jerry Slusky and Bob Batt, is a privately-owned real estate development company known in Nebraska and Iowa for its focus on building new, first-class apartment communities since 2013, specializing in identifying Midwest communities with populations of around 50,000 where there is a particular need for amenity-filled apartments.

SB Communities, LLC fulfills this need and develops projects with resort-style pools, innovative clubhouses, full-size fitness facilities, and individual apartments with quartz island countertops, stainless steel appliances and washer/dryers as basic amenities. They have followed this model for the past seven years, and it has been a huge success.

The company has recently passed the milestone of completing one-thousand apartment units. Jerry and Bob put their decades of experience earned in real estate development and furniture sales and marketing to give SB Communities, LLC this extraordinary pace of growth.

Bob Batt grew up and went to college in Omaha. He retired from Nebraska Furniture Mart (now a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary) after a long and successful career in marketing and executive leadership. He then joined with Jerry to create SB Communities, LLC.

Attorney Jerry Slusky has been in real estate law practice for over 45 years, most of which have been spent assisting clients in all aspects of the development of commercial real estate. Jerry is the Founder of the CRE Summit - an annual commercial real estate conference now in its 32nd consecutive year; he is also one of only seven Nebraska Fellows of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL).

Some of the company's widely recognized projects include The Sterling Apartments of Grand Island, The Sterling Apartments of Kearney and The Sterling Apartments at Prairie Trail in Ankeny, Iowa.

Speaking about their recent achievement, Jerry said, "A thousand units is an important number. It demonstrates that we were right to invest in research and move forward with providing these communities the products they were missing. SB Communities, LLC provides a first-class apartment living experience that is more like a home, set in an amenity-filled community campus".

This achievement opens many new doors for SB Communities, LLC. Bob Batt is very optimistic about the future of the company. He says, "Mrs. B, Founder of the Nebraska Furniture Mart, often told me, 'It's not what you want. It's what the customer wants.' And that's true for this business as well! The transfer of business ideas and theory applies as we consider what the customer is wanting, not what we want."

SB Communities, LLC is also a partner in a joint venture in the development of 300 units in Papillion, NE, Axis Apartments, which opened its first two buildings last August. The company is also planning to break ground on a new 404-unit apartment community in the Prairie Trail subdivision of Ankeny, IA in May 2021.

COMPANY CONTACT INFORMATION

SB Communities, LLC is a Nebraska owned and operated company, focused on bringing outstanding, home-like rental apartments to Midwest living.

Drink HRW Reports on Start of Large-Scale Randomized Controlled Trial and Preliminary Findings from Pilot Trial on the Reduction in Complications from COVID-19

COQUITLAM, BC, Canada -- Drink HRW is excited to announce that a large, double-blind placebo-controlled trial is set to begin this week in France, initiated by the University of Grenoble-Alpes. At the request of the researchers, Drink HRW is supplying the hydrogen tablets for the study as well as a donation to improve the size and scope of the research. It has no other involvement in the research or the decision to publish results.

In addition to the French study, a team from the University of Novi Sad in Serbia has also reported promising preliminary findings from a small pilot trial administering Drink HRW tablets to patients hospitalized from COVID-19.

A statement released in France by the team of researchers stated:

Our hypothesis is that the ingestion, as early as possible at the onset of Covid-19, of 2 times 250 mL per day of water enriched in molecular hydrogen by tablets (Drink HRW, Canada) containing 80 mg of magnesium metal (capable of spontaneously releasing hydrogen on contact with water), would reduce complications in patients over the age of 60, who have just been diagnosed with Covid-19 and do not show any signs of seriousness, and may therefore be treated at home.

Our hypotheses lead to an estimate of the necessary number of 450 patients (225 in each arm, prospective, randomized, double-blind study on a product classified as a "new dietary ingredient" by the Food and Drug Administration). One of the originalities of the protocol will be that the inclusion visits will be done by teleconsultation.

The study is coordinated by the TIMC laboratory (Joint Research Unit of CNRS and Université Grenoble Alpes). The principal investigator, Dr. Yoann Gaboreau, general practitioner, is University Lecturer - Outpatient Practitioner at the Department of General Medicine of the Faculty of Medicine of Grenoble, active member of the research program "Covid-19 in ambulatory care and long-term COVID" with the REACTing consortium (REsearch and ACTion targeting emerging infectious diseases). About twenty general practitioners will be the investigators in charge of inclusions. The head of the methodology is Prof. Jean-Luc Bosson, the scientific manager is Prof. Philippe Cinquin, both Public Health Physicians. The promoter will be AGIRadom, a home health care provider expert in patient support, and which has the authorization to carry out clinical trials at home.

Despite the strong presumption of a possible interest in the ingestion of H2 at the early stages of Covid-19, no clinical trial aimed at evaluating the interest of the ingestion of H2 is currently listed on http://clinicaltrials.gov/. The test we are conducting will therefore be the first of its kind.

Drink HRW CEO Alex Tarnava added that the study will also follow patients for 1 year following recovery from COVID-19 in order to determine if the administration of hydrogen water ameliorates longer term effects from the disease.

Hydrogen therapy has emerged as a potential candidate for numerous models, including athletic performance and recovery, metabolic disorders, neurological outcomes, both acute and chronic, and even as a potential adjuvant therapy in cancer treatment. Although hydrogen therapy has not been approved for any health condition and more research is needed, there are roughly 100 publications exploring hydrogen therapy in humans demonstrating an effect from the use of hydrogen therapy, and a total of over 1500+ publications, mostly research experimenting on animals on the use of hydrogen therapy.

In February, the Chinese government added hydrogen inhalation to their approved protocol for the treatment of the novel coronavirus (*note 1). The first clinical trial in China, an open label study with 44 patients, reported promising results (*note 2). The trial was headed by Prof. Nan-Shon Zhong, famous for leading China through the SARS pandemic in 2003 and who has also acted as a senior advisor to the Chinese government throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. A larger multi-center clinical trial utilizing hydrogen inhalation is underway in China. Hydrogen-rich water has often shown a more prominent effect than hydrogen gas inhalation at much lower dosages, easier convenience, and lower cost.

Dr. Sergej Ostojic, M.D., Ph.D., professor in the department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, a noted hydrogen researcher and expert in bioenergetics, currently has ongoing clinical research exploring the Drink HRW tablets for potential effects in multiple phenotypic biomarkers of aging in the elderly, as well as the use of hydrogen water in hospitalized COVID-19 patients. He said:

"Hydrogen gas appears to inhibit airway inflammation in patients with asthma, an effect that might improve the condition of inflammatory cytokines storm seen in COVID-19. To test this hypothesis, we recently started a small-scale open-label study to evaluate the acute effects of hydrogen-rich water administration on oxygen saturation, patient-reported outcomes and other relevant biomarkers in COVID-19 patients. Preliminary findings suggest beneficial effects yet the study is still on-going and more research activities are ahead of my team. Like other promising (and urgently needed) therapeutics for COVID-19, hydrogen requires accelerated yet attentive research and approval pathways, with sufficient efficacy and safety guarantees."

Tarnava stated, "COVID-19 is a serious issue, and we at Drink HRW are ecstatic to assist in any way we can."

About Drink HRW

Drink HRW is on a mission to revolutionize the supplement industry with a new, science-based approach. In just 4 years of availability, various research teams have published 7 clinical trials and 2 case studies using their products, with an additional 15+ clinical trials and 4 preclinical research programs underway. Further, the Drink HRW technology is the only molecular hydrogen supplement on the market to obtain New Dietary Ingredient status after filing with the U.S. FDA.

Synergy Education Platform Enters New York State with Eastern Suffolk BOCES Contract

PATCHOGUE, N.Y. -- Eastern Suffolk BOCES (ESBOCES), an educational cooperative, has contracted with Edupoint® Educational Systems to offer the company's industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform to school districts across Long Island. School districts purchasing Synergy under this agreement will continue to receive implementation, training, and support services from the ESBOCES team.
