New Book Helps People to Deal with Loss During the Pandemic

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- When Gina Marie Mordecki's daughter was raped and murdered, she prayed that her death would not be in vain. Her new book, "God's Amazing Intimacy in Grief" (ISBN: 979-8578563751), is the answer to that prayer. Mordecki's book is written to help heal the hearts of others who have experienced the tragic loss of a loved one.

"Right now, we're living through a terrible pandemic and people are dying," Mordecki said. "People are dying alone and their loved ones are left behind to cope with a reality of inconsolable sadness. I want this book to offer some comfort and perhaps, even provide some answers."

After Mordecki's daughter was murdered, people didn't know what to say.

"It's one thing to say, 'I'm sorry for your loss,' but it's quite another to live in a house with an empty place setting at the dinner table," she says. "And, for people suffering loss during the pandemic, the suffering is only compounded through quarantining and "stay-at-home" orders."

"God's Amazing Intimacy in Grief" is a short read, less than an hour, that serves to minister to people while they grieve. It asks and answers important questions such as "Why now?" and helps people to understand and resolve their anger with God. It shares stories of others who have lost children and details how they found their way out of the darkness.

Mordecki's personal account of her tragic loss shares personal experiences of how God tried to prepare her for the loss and then helped her to deal with the inevitable outcome. The book also references specific scripture and offers interpretation.

"God's Amazing Intimacy in Grief" is available on Amazon for 0.99 as an eBook and $5.99 in paperback format.

AmTrav Launches Innovative Flight Shopping Experience for Business Travelers and Travel Managers

AGOURA HILLS, Calif. -- AmTrav, the one-stop platform for business travel, announced today the launch of its brand-new flight shopping experience in their award winning a2b booking tool.

"The business travel industry has been talking and talking about how to close content gaps and improve air shopping for almost a decade," said AmTrav CEO Jeff Klee. "But, despite countless working groups and forums, more three letter acronyms have emerged than customer benefits."

Referring to the industry's fledgling New Distribution Capability initiative (NDC), Klee added: "Most TMCs are waiting around for others in the industry to solve their travelers' problems, but we've committed to tackling these challenges ourselves, without waiting for production-ready NDC. We spent 2020 iterating, connecting to different data sources and curating our own content to deliver tangible benefits now. We're still far from the finish line, but we're way ahead of everyone else in the race to help customers easily find the flights and fares that they need."

Although AmTrav has been showing travelers all of the available fare brands on every flight since 2017 and was the first TMC to go live with a basic Next Generation Storefront (NGS) display in 2019, the new experience has been rebuilt and reimagined around the changing ways that airlines offer their products the resulting frustration for travelers who either are not presented all the options or aren't able to adequately compare them.

Beginning with a fresh slate, fresh colors and fonts, a2b's new design allows bookers to compare flights and fares, quickly finding just the right option:

* Inspired by the most current NGS standard, the new flight display shows all available fares aligned vertically, so customers won't accidentally compare a Basic Economy fare to a Regular Economy fare, can find cheaper options for similar products, and can spot when extra legroom or a premium seat is available for a small buyup.

* Since fare brands are complicated and confusing -- what's the difference between this Basic fare and that Basic fare, and what's a Blue fare? -- travelers can quickly compare fares from the same flight or across multiple flights to see the seat details, flight amenities, baggage allowances and change policies side-by-side for easy apples-to-apples comparison.

* Seats matter a lot, so not only does AmTrav show a preview of available seats on the seat map plus seat details like width, legroom and whether it's a lie-flat or even all-aisle access, but customers can also see AmTrav-curated onboard images and detailed reviews for 83 different airline/aircraft combinations, with more being added.

* Road warriors know that in-flight amenities are not all created equal so AmTrav lets travelers drill down beyond the standard WiFi and in-flight entertainment icons to answer questions like "How fast is this WiFi?", "Does it work gate to gate?", "What's the quality of this video screen and what can I watch on it -- live TV, on-demand movies and more?"

* Although it's not uncommon for booking tools to allow travelers to filter flights by time, airlines, airports, or number of stops, AmTrav now lets you filter by amenities, too, so you can see only flights that have fast WiFi, in seat power, middle seats blocked, or all aisle access in business class, to name a few.

* The new flight shopping experience includes full support for AmTrav-negotiated or

* company-negotiated fare bundles to streamline purchase of seat upgrades, baggage, wifi and more -- travelers can clearly see what's included and book these new offerings right in the tool.

As always, AmTrav's new flight shopping display automatically applies companies' travel policies, pre-trip approvals and negotiated discounts so bookers can easily pick fares that work for both the traveler and the company.

Content sources used in the new flight display include Routehappy by ATPCO, NDC content from 3 airlines (with more coming soon), multiple GDSs, and content developed and collected by AmTrav.

"With AmTrav, you can have it all in one package that's designed for you: a consumer-grade booking tool, ready-to-help expert Travel Advisors and Relationship managers, and flexible, accurate reporting and controls," said AmTrav President Craig Fichtelberg. "Traditionally companies had to choose between a slow, antiquated booking tool that bookers dread using or a wild-west approach with no controls that left travel administrators to collect spending data and track travelers in spreadsheets."

Hear from Jeff about his inspiration and the process of creating the new booking tool, and see a video tour of the redesigned flight shopping, here:

Bonsi Inc Launches New Gen Cordless Blender That Connects to RTIC, Yeti, Hydro Flask Bottles

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Bonsi Inc, a premier manufacturer and retailer of superior small appliances, introduces a new generation of cordless blenders that gives you the power of a traditional blender on the go. Bonsi Blend launch's on Indiegogo on the 26th of January. Bonsi Blend connects directly to RTIC®, Yeti®, and Hydro Flask® bottles*. A 25-Volt power pack providing 750-watts of peak power and up to 30 blends per charge.

The Bonsi Story

Bonsi, Inc was founded in April of 2020 by David and Gifty Haight to create consumer products to revolutionize their markets. The question that brought this about was remarkably simple. Gifty called David to see if he could help find a cordless blender with a stainless-steel insulated cup. Gifty wanted something she could take to the gym or work that would keep her drinks cold for hours. After days of searching, they were unable to find what they wanted. They also realized that the blender market had not changed in decades. All the cool technology now available wasn't being used.

After careful thought and consideration, they decided to start Bonsi, Inc. to develop their version of what a blender should be. It needed to integrate all the relevant, current technology to create a powerful, compact, eco-friendly product made with high-quality parts and be easy to use. They knew this would require sacrifice, risk, and months of effort. And they would need to do all of this during a worldwide pandemic and at a time of unprecedented political turmoil. But it had to be done - people deserved a product that would help them live better and simpler lives.

After months of research, endless phone calls, design work, and putting together the best possible team, Bonsi Blend was born. Like the bonsai tree, Bonsi Blend is small, powerful, sturdy, beautiful, and made to last. Because "Deep in Bonsi Inc's core values, is to only create the best products possible, so that's what we did," said David Haight, CEO and Co-Founder.

Bonsi Blend was developed with only the best parts available:

* A 25-Volt Bonsi Power Pack, made from the highest quality lithium-ion batteries, delivers 750 watts of peak power. Easily as powerful as a home blender, Bonsi Blend will give you up to 30 blends per charge.

* The best brushless motor gives it a peak efficiency of 85%, creating a quieter blender.

* Integrated safety technology ensures that the blades won't turn without a cup attached and stop if the blender tips over.

* A USB-C, PD 3.0-Rapid Charger gives it the fastest possible charging speeds.

* Data transfer options allow it to receive remote firmware updates. All you need is a cable to connect the USB-C connector to a computer.

* A rugged, flex-rigid PCB board built to last for years.

* A sliding touch sensor to make operating it intuitive, easy, and simple.

* It was purposely built without a plastic blending vessel. "Let's face it; there are enough plastic bottles in the world," said David Haight, CEO and Co-Founder. Instead, Bonsi Blend attaches to cups already in the market - RTIC® Bottles, Yeti® Bottles, and Hydro Flask® wide-mouth bottles, giving people the choice of brand, color, and bottle size.

As with any new venture, there was a great deal to be endured by everyone involved. With a 3-year-old boy, plus the cost of developing Bonsi Blend, it was not an easy task. David had to travel a lot for work and the development of Bonsi Blend. Gifty worked in the medical field during Covid, picking up extra shifts when she could, while raising their son, Nathan.

As with anything in life, struggle, determination, and sacrifice are part of what makes something great. Bonsi Blend is an extraordinary product, forged with determination and sacrifice, that will revolutionize how blenders are made. Bonsi shows the world that if you have the will to do something, anything is possible.

Gifty and David look forward to sharing Bonsi Blend with the world and sharing the love one blend at a time.

"Bonsi Blend is a product that will change people's lives for the better. It is easy to use, high quality, and built to last. Now people can have the power of a home blender in the palm of their hand," says Gifty Haight, VP & Co-Founder.

‘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?"

About Author Dimitar Avramov:

Dimitar Avramov is a Bulgarian-born political scientist and writer who analyzes the trends and changes in the political process and statehood, political ideologies and electoral politics. The New American State is one of the best current political books. It is focused on the change of the American statehood. It offers a perspective on how the fourth industrial revolution, also called the Digital Revolution and Industry 4.0, marks the beginning of an era of deterritorialization.
