Reading Is Fundamental and Homewood Suites by Hilton Partner to Support Children’s Literacy Efforts

Washington, DC, April 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), the nation’s largest children’s literacy non-profit organization, is partnering with Homewood Suites by Hilton on the shared mission of promoting children’s literacy by providing families, teachers, parents, and community volunteers free and accessible educational materials around Lewis the Duck books.
With a longtime commitment to children’s literacy, Homewood Suites by Hilton created the Lewis the Duck books to help make kids feel more comfortable while someone they love is away. Reading Is Fundamental created supplemental learning materials aligned with the Lewis the Duck books along with a custom page on its Literacy Central website, featuring Lewis the Duck books with two titles available in Spanish and English. Each title is matched with complimentary literacy activities and educational reading resources to help create engaged readers.  The books also include an e-book version to encourage kids and parents to take reading on the go.  Parents, teachers, volunteers and literacy lovers can access the custom Homewood Suites collection on Literacy Central at RIF.org/HomewoodSuites.
"As the Lewis the Duck book series continues to grow and evolve, we are excited to partner with Reading Is Fundamental and offer these valuable reading resources, which we hope will provide more children with the tools needed to improve literacy levels in our communities," said Adrian Kurre, global head, Homewood Suites by Hilton. The Lewis the Duck books were created to keep our guests connected to their families while traveling while also strengthening our commitment to childhood literacy, and we look forward to this new chapter with RIF.”
Homewood Suites by Hilton and Reading Is Fundamental will continue the partnership to encourage kids to read with promotion in Homewood Suites by Hilton hotels around the United States, Mexico and Canada. Literacy resources, including bookmarks and activity sheets, will be available to Homewood Suites by Hilton guests.
“Reading Is Fundamental is committed to creating a culture of literacy in communities nationwide.  Reading is the necessary foundation for all children that puts them on the pathway for success,” says Reading is Fundamental President and CEO, Alicia Levi. “We’ve joined forces with partner Homewood Suites to meet the reading needs of today’s children with relevant tools and resources needed to impact children and encourage reading.
Every child deserves an opportunity to own books, learn how to read, and obtain the fundamental building blocks needed to achieve their highest potential, yet 25 million children in the United States cannot read proficiently.1 In addition, 34% of children entering kindergarten lack the basic skills needed to learn how to read. 2 By the fourth grade, 65% of children are reading below grade level.3
Additionally, Homewood Suites by Hilton and RIF are partnering with Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN on a special Children’s Book Week reading celebration on April 30. Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital has a Family Resource Center where patients can come and read, parents can find out more about their child’s illness and families can spend some time outside their hospital room. Along with story time and special activities for patients, Homewood Suites by Hilton will donate a collection of Lewis the Duck books to the Family Resource Center as part of the brand’s commitment and contribution towards children’s literacy.

Zodiac killer identified? Detective reveals evidence

Infamous murders committed over a period of 60 years are now solved, according to author and veteran detective John Cameron. He has found evidence that the Zodiac killing spree, the Black  Dahlia murder, other unsolved murders, and even murders that ended in convictions of other people, were committed by one man, a man who was convicted of five murders.

Here's the press release about Cameron's book and the deal he signed with Reel Time:

RLTR - ReelTime Signs John Cameron Author of "It's Me Edward Wayne Edwards" Launching Multimedia Publishing Division Corresponding With National Exposure of The Most Chilling Discoveries in Serial Killer History


ReelTime Media and Veteran Detective Author John Cameron Have Partnered to Shed Light on Discovery that the Zodiak Killer Killed JonBenet 

Seattle, WA , April 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  ReelTime (OTCPK:RLTR) has signed a publishing and monetization agreement with veteran detective John Cameron author of “It's Me Edward Wayne Edwards The Serial Killer You Never Heard Of” which profiles the life of  what may  be the most prolific serial killer of all time. As part of the agreement the parties will split the profits derived from the sale of the book and its derivatives and will mutually promote the discoveries contained within it as well as what has been learned since its publication.

Although Ed Edwards was convicted of only 5 murders the discoveries presented in the book have led many to believe that the spree could have exceeded 60 people spanning over 60 years including many of the most famous murders of all time. Murders such as those committed by the Zodiac Killer, the deaths of Elizabeth Short, known as the Black Dahlia, JonBenet Ramsay, as well as the murders of Teresa Halbach and Laci Peterson, whose convicted killers already sit in prison. 

The book and evidence presented in it has recently gained national exposure in In Touch http://www.intouchweekly.com/posts/edward-edwards-jonbenet-ramsey-black-dahlia-156347 , and according to People http://people.com/crime/did-edward-edwards-murder-jonbenet-black-dahlia-zodiac-killer/ spawned a six-part series based on the book set to begin airing April 16. On The Paramount Network (formerly Spike) sparking perhaps the single most controversial discoveries in criminal history.  The first edition of "Its Me Edward Wayne Edwards The Serial Killer You Never Heard Of" can be purchased at www.itsmeededwards.com from Amazon in hard cover or e-book as of today. 

Veteran Detective/Author John Cameron exclaimed: “I believe some of the most famous murders in the last 60 years were created by this one man. I never set out to learn what I have learned but once I started down the rabbit hole I could not stop and am amazed at what I discovered.  Being able to partner with ReelTime will make a tremendous difference as to how many people will be able to experience and understand this truly shocking series of revelations. It is great to have a competent team of very bright individuals at ReelTime working with me on this.” 

Barry Henthorn CEO stated: “Sometimes a mans fate is chosen and other times it is discovered. John Cameron simply could not ignore his instincts nor the mountain of evidence that corroborated his discoveries.  We are committed and compelled to share his work contained in the book as well as additional revelations and evidence that further expand on the spree of murders committed by Edward Wayne Edwards that continue to compile.”

Steven Raichlen’s Project Fire premieres nationwide this summer on public TV

Latest ‘must watch’ TV series from the man who reinvented modern American barbecue

Steven Raichlen’s Project Fire offers viewers an insightful exploration of how Americans grill today and how people will grill and smoke tomorrow.

Upcoming Steven Raichlen’s Project Fire season one episode highlights include Grilling 24/7 (yes, he grills eggs), Extreme Grilling (using hot iron, live embers, and more), and The Vineyard Grill (exploring the intimate connection between grilling and wine).  Viewers also get insights on such Raichlen innovations as brisket tacos, pork loin “Reuben,” finger-burner lamb chops, and orange-mint mojo grilled lobsters.  Of course, Raichlen grills dessert, from Brazilian pineapple to cedar planked chocolate brownie s’mores, along with smoked peach Bellinis to wash them down.

They've been lying to us all along, and cheaters prosper

"Cheaters never prosper." Oh, really? In my 63 years of life, I've watched in amazement and sometimes horror as the people who cut corners and copy the work of others rise to the top, gaining status, power and wealth. Even in low-wage professions, the worst workers often rise to management positions.

They told us when we were children that we could be successful if we followed the rules, were kind to others and worked hard. They lied to us.

I've watched i disbelief as the best employees in fast food, factory work and education got shunted to the side, while the brown-nosers got promoted without so much as breaking a sweat. Dad's uncle, for example, rose through the Navy ranks during WW2 to eventually become an admiral. He was in charge of supplies for the Pacific Fleet, based in Hawaii. However, since he didn't go to the Academy, the other admirals refused to play golf with Edgar Chapman. He was the lowest rank of admiral, and the only way to rise higher was by playing golf with other admirals. Doing a good job didn't profit him.

On top of that, it really does matter where you came from. If your parents didn't mix with the right people, your first job was pumping gas or feeding snakes at a pet shop or handing out donuts and coffee. Their first job was an internship with a desk, a badge and a business suit, as well as a salary that was more than what their work was worth.

Doing well in school can help with your career, but you will never get a job that enables you to pay off your student loans, unless you "known somebody". It also helps to have wealthy parents who are willing and able to pay your tuition, thus avoiding the student loan trap. Meanwhile, tuition has skyrocketed. At the junior college, I paid $50 a semester. At the four-year college, I paid $600 a term. What do you pay now? Your books cost more than what I paid for tuition in the 1970s.

Wages and salaries, on the other hand, have not risen much. You are stuck with low wages, unless you know somebody or your parents mixed with the right people. If you have one or both of those advantages, you don't have to do a good job. A third advantage is available to cheaters, and they do prosper. They suck up to their superiors, and they steal the work of others, and they rise to the top.

The rest of us are stuck going to work to earn the money to keep the car that gets us to work.

They lied to us. Yet I can't bring myself to cheat or to steal the work of others. It just isn't in me.

Water rights victory in Oregon


Where I live, I am  not allowed to have a rain barrel. If I were to save some of the rain that falls on my land, I would be subject to thousands of dollars in fines and possible jail time. If I were to dig a well, that would also be a crime. The water that falls from the sky and pools up underground supposedly belongs to our local water utility, but it is being sold off to a huge foreign corporation. That issue has grown to  immense proportions in the midst of a five-year drought.

Local, state and federal authorities in the U.S. have engaged in a pattern of selling water rights for a tiny fraction of what they are worth. The buyer, Nestle, is a foreign corporation with outlets all over the world. They take water from anywhere they can get it, bottle it and sell it back to the public at high prices. Meanwhile, wells and springs are going dry, especially in drought-stricken areas. Moreover, Nestle takes millions of gallons of water above and beyond what their permits allow.

Boycotting Nestle as part of a grass roots effort has proven difficult and sometime impossible because Nestle owns such a wide variety of products, mostly processed foods. Pressure on government agencies has proven more effective in the fight to keep the water rights that properly belong to the public and should not be sold to anyone under any circumstances.

Here's a copy of the email that I received early this morning: 

While we were fighting Nestlé's in Michigan last year, we received some great news that we have yet to celebrate -- you helped secure a win against Nestlé in Oregon!
Nestlé’s had plans to pump fresh water out of Cascade Locks, Oregon to bottle and sell for massive profits -- but it fell through after a nine-year battle with local activists.

YayNzPureBlueOut

Bowing to the pressure of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, local residents, and thousands of SumOfUs members like you, Governor Kate Brown ordered state officials in October to stop an exchange of water rights that Nestlé needed to seal the deal.
It took major community power to stop Nestlé’s water grab, which would have had the brand drain some of Oregon’s cleanest water for only one cent per 40 gallons. Then, it would sell the same water back to the public for $2.63 per gallon -- a literal steal.
It didn’t matter that Oregon was facing a devastating five-year drought: Nestlé’s plan was about profit and nothing more -- never mind Native American treaty rights or local access to cheap, clean water. But community members and activists wouldn’t let Nestlé rob them without a fight. In May 2016, a massive voter outreach campaign passed a Hood River County measure to ban large water bottling operations like Nestlé’s plan.
Governor Brown’s notice is the result of years of local leadership and community activism. Which means this isn’t a victory just for Cascade Locks or Oregon -- it’s a win for all communities defending their local water rights in the face of corporate greed.
Together, we showed big corporations like Nestlé that even small communities like Cascade Locks won’t bow to corporate profiteering. Now, Nestlé has closed its offices in offices in Cascade Locks and will have to look elsewhere to practice their predatory business model. With your help, we’ll be ready to continue the fight wherever they end up next.
Thanks for all that you do,
Angus, Emma, Amelia and the team at SumOfUs
P.S. Want to help us keep up the fight for local water rights? You can https://act.sumofus.org/go/396156?t=2&akid=39589%2E7005551%2E_PtPc_ rel="noopener">make a donation here to keep us strong and ready to leap into action. Thank you!

Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you'll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!     

The Spin & Win Wheel will be available all throughout Swago and you have until 11:59pm PT on Monday, January 15th to use all your spins.           

Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points - if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 500 SB bonus, which is enough for a $5 gift card from the retailer of your choice.                       
Click here right now and click "Join" to get started! If you don't already have a Swagbucks account, you'll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of January, you'll get a bonus 300 SB!

Get $3 when you sign up for Swagbucks in January (US)

The referral bonus is back at Swagbucks! 

Looking for a way to rebuild your finances after the holidays? 

If you haven't tried Swagbucks before, you can get a bonus $3 for signing up as my referral during January. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash. 

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a $3 bonus! Here's how: 

1. Sign up using this link 

2. Earn 300 SB total before 2/1/18. You'll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it! 

3. If you want even more bonuses, you'll get a $10 (1000 SB rebate) bonus for making your first shop purchase! That's in addition to the SB you earn for every dollar you spend.  

That's it. It's super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned more than 68 thousand Swagbucks, which is about $680, and I traded them in for cash and Amazon gift cards.
