A Fathers Fight Against Scientology’s Disconnection Policy that Ripped his Family Apart is Now an Illustrated Book

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Author Brian J. Sheen's new book, "Relentless, Rescuing My Daughter from Scientology, an Illustrated Story," (ASIN B091P673ZX) is the struggle of a father and newly pronounced grandfather, attempting to get state and federal officials to preserve the sanctity of his family from the Church of Scientology's "horrific acts" that ripped his family apart and allegedly violated his human rights, was recently released, Quan Publications announced. The book is now available on Amazon in paperback and on Kindle

Brian Sheen has always been a devoted father who has cherished his children and shared his love and success with them. He encouraged them to follow their hearts and live a life of freedom. Nothing had prepared him, for the devastating shock, when he received a phone call from his Scientologist daughter, that the Church of Scientology demanded his daughter to never speak or see him again, unless he agreed to pay them hundreds of thousands of dollars and place himself under their full control.

Why? Because her non-Scientologist father had been declared an enemy of her Church, for reasons they refused to disclose to him. If his daughter were to violate their disconnection order, she would also be labeled an enemy, and forced to disconnect from her Scientologist husband, mother, and friends and lose what was most probably, her last opportunity to become a mother. Extremely upset and protesting furiously, she was forced to obey.

This book acts as a warning to any existing or prospective new Scientologist, to recognize what Judge John Breckenridge shared about the Church of Scientology: "In addition to violating and abusing its own members civil rights, the organization has harassed and abused those persons not in the church whom it perceives as enemies. The organization is clearly schizophrenic and paranoid, and this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder L. Ron Hubbard. The evidence portrays a man who's been virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background and achievements." (*See Note 1.)

Money, power, and control of their members life is at the core of how Scientology functions, which Sheen shares with compelling illustrations. He shows how Scientology convinces members to spend thousands of hours to implant Hubbard's insane alien attachment hallucinations into their minds to disassociate them from reality while expecting they will become superhuman.

"Relentless," acts as a warning to any existing or prospective new Scientologist, to recognize the trap of how Scientology imprints them with their demented beliefs and why Hubbard's processes create severe mental dysfunction and dangerous disassociated states. Readers will learn how Scientology's distorted view of human existence causes them to blame the alleged multiple rape victims of celebrity Scientologist Danny Masterson to accuse the victims, not Masterson, of committing a crime, because they reported their alleged rapes to the police!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and seeing the visuals of how celebrity Scientologists like Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Elisabeth Moss and Greta Van Susteren have been hypnotized to support Scientology's family disconnections, attacks on critics, and Hubbard's fraudulent representations, is shocking.

Readers will feel the emotional impact of the author through the gripping illustrations that share his journey through Scientology and his relentless struggle to reconnect with his daughter and meet his new grandson.

A leading authority on Scientology, Mike Rinder, Emmy Winner for Co-Producing "Scientology and The Aftermath" calls this book, "Powerful. Righteous. He will never be silenced and will ultimately prevail."

"Great. Gripping. Devastating. Remarkable," shared Tony Ortega, Proprietor of The Underground Bunker Blog.

Encounter Telehealth Awards ‘Certificates of Excellence in Mental Health Care’

OMAHA, Neb. -- Encounter Telehealth awarded their partner facilities 'Certificates of Excellence in Mental Health Care' for their perseverance and dedication to the mental health needs of their residents throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

"This past year has been wrought with unprecedented challenges and hurdles for the staff and residents of our senior living community partners," explains Jennifer Amis, President and CEO of Encounter Telehealth.

"Through everything, the care teams at these facilities have gone above and beyond to ensure the mental health and wellness for their residents. They truly deserve special commendation."

Depression and anxiety hit an all-time high for older adults amid the pandemic. Recent studies determined that 1 in 4 older adults have experienced depression and anxiety since the pandemic began. Lockdowns, loneliness, fear, and loss have contributed to a mental health epidemic in an already struggling population.

In 2020, throughout the pandemic, Encounter Telehealth conducted over 10,000 telehealth encounters for residents of senior care communities. The staff at these communities have embraced the Encounter Team as an extension of their own care teams. The collaboration between Encounter and their partner facilities has improved the mental health and quality of life for residents and staff members.

QUOTES:

"Jenkins Living Center is located in Watertown, South Dakota -- a rural area in the northeastern corner of the state. Our community lacks the services of a psychiatrist, and scheduling visits with a clinical psychology would often take weeks before the resident could be seen. When we signed on with Encounter, we immediately saw an improvement in mental health services for our resident population. The telehealth psychologists that have served our facility have been extremely responsive whenever we have needed a consultation, and they are very engaged when visiting with our residents and staff. They thoroughly review the residents' medical records prior to visits and do an outstanding job of follow-up regarding efficacy of medications they have prescribed. Overall, the well-being of our residents who need mental health consultations has improved dramatically since we began to partner with Encounter," said Loren Dietman, President and CEO of Jenkins Living Center.

"The majority of our residents being followed by Encounter have had improved mental health. Behaviors have decreased, which has helped the environment for both the residents and employees. Residents' mental health is more stable," said Nicholas Guerrette, Administrator at Borderview Rehabilitation and Living Center.

National Postdoctoral Association Unveils New Strategic Plan

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- Today, the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) released a strategic plan for the coming three years to move closer towards its vision of "an inclusive community where all postdocs are empowered, valued, recognized, and supported in their current and future endeavors."

The 2021-2024 plan features a dozen strategies oriented around four pillars of NPA activity -- advocacy; diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI); member development; and operational excellence. The pillars and strategies were developed through an inclusive, eight-month process that included surveys of postdocs and university offices, consultation with external stakeholders, and use of best practices.

"The pillars of this strategic plan represent the next logical steps in our growth," said Stephanie Eberle, M.Ed., NPA Board Chair, "diversifying our research community, advocating for equity and opportunities within it, and maintaining the intentional, dependable service this important community deserves."

Since 2003, the NPA has been dedicated to improve the postdoctoral experience by supporting a culture of inclusive connection. This new member-driven plan is designed to bring even greater focus to the NPA's efforts by honing in on areas of greatest value and importance to postdocs and the institutions that support them.

The release coincides with the NPA's 19th Annual Conference, also occurring this week, and which has itself shattered attendance records and positioned the organization to jumpstart work under the new plan. The 18,000 member association hopes to further engage with its members, partners, allies and other stakeholders as it builds out specific initiatives and activities to implement its new strategies.

"We are committed to excellence in helping our members succeed -- from developing career pathways to building more inclusive communities -- and to creating novel and collaborative ways of enabling such success," commented Thomas P. Kimbis, J.D., NPA executive director and CEO. "We encourage stakeholders to connect with us to create win-win scenarios under our new plan."

About National Postdoctoral Association:

The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) educational association headquartered in Rockville, MD. Founded in 2003, the NPA envisions an inclusive community where all postdocs are empowered, valued, recognized, and supported in their current and future endeavors. The NPA serves the entire postdoctoral community, including its 18,000 individual and 215 organizational members.

Green Janitorial Innovations Spur New Tech Company Focused on Occupant Health

DES MOINES, Iowa -- With over eight years in providing green, sustainable, microbial protection to businesses, schools, and medical facilities throughout the Midwest, The Heritage Group of Des Moines, IA launched a new tech company, SPMC, LLC in the summer of 2020 to be led by SPMC President John Bergman and SPMC Technical Director Joe Johnson.

More than vacuuming, cleaning, and dusting, Heritage Building Maintenance, the custodial and building management arm of The Heritage Group, set themselves apart with their commitment to the integration of WELL building best practices and use of science-based research and technology. Science-Proven Microbial Control® was born out of their objective of cleaning for health. This not only helped customers maintain the wellness of their buildings but also helped protect those who occupy them.

"Disinfecting has always been a thorn in the side of a sustainable green cleaning program," said Johnson. "Over the last eight years we've worked hard to develop Science-Proven Microbial Control® into a real, solutions-based program."

In the spring of 2020, when businesses across the nation were suddenly challenged with crisis-level health and operational obstacles, Heritage's years of experience in microbial control and innovation turned itself into a real-world tested, science-based process that facilitated the founding of SPMC, LLC - the tech company supported by their trademarked program.

From the initial announcements of pandemic spread and the challenges that faced building management, the SPMC, LLC team saw increased interest from Building Services and Commercial Real Estate Management Companies fostering continuous growth and licensing opportunities throughout the year.

While the timing for a start-up could have been challenging for some, SPMC has continued to grow their family of licensees - all while supporting their current customer list including Paramount Building Solutions in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market, Specialty Maintenance Service out of Omaha, as well as Heritage Building Maintenance in Des Moines. SPMC also continues to educate their business clients and associates on the benefits of Science-Proven Microbial Control®, WELL building best practices, and the use of science and data that supplement traditional cleaning and building maintenance services.

"This takes janitorial services beyond 'straightening up'," says Greg Theroux, Founder and CEO of Heritage Building Maintenance and SPMC, LLC. "While we're in the cleaning business, really, our job is to make our customers' workspaces healthier."

As the Heritage Building Maintenance team continues to provide healthy solutions in custodial and building maintenance services, they and others will become licensees through SPMC, LLC to provide a technologically advanced program that includes a multi-step process, and a scientifically-tested, EPA registered, antimicrobial surface protectant. These treatments are applied through their Test - Treat - Track™ process, creating a superior, data-based cleaning and protection protocol.

John Bergman, who comes from decades of commercial and corporate real estate management, joined the leadership team at SPMC, LLC in January of this year. Together with Technical Director, Joe Johnson, SPMC will continue to innovate and grow its offerings.

"This is so far beyond cleaning, we can't consider ourselves anything less than a tech company," said Bergman. "The data used to support our licensees is groundbreaking."

Bergman went on to explain that through their Science-Proven Microbial Control® program, licensees use testing to set a baseline of cleanliness - at a microbial level - within a building. This establishes a scientifically trackable, data-based health and wellness microbial control protocol for each and every space they serve, providing long lasting protection beyond cleaning and focusing on occupant health and safety.

"Considering our current health-conscious corporate culture," said Bergman. "The availability of this technology sets a new standard for health in the built environment. By providing long-lasting microbial control we re-set the need for hyper disinfecting. This not only provides health and wellness to buildings and occupants, but focuses on sustainability and green best practices."

SPMC, LLC is located in Des Moines, Iowa and currently serves a growing list of licensees and partner companies throughout the Midwest.

If you have questions or would like more information on their Science-Proven Microbial Control® program or licensee opportunities from SPMC, LLC, you can contact John Bergman, SPMC, LLC President at john@spmcglobal.com or go to their Web site at https://spmcglobal.com/.
