Dr. Gregory Jantz Addresses Depression and Shares Insightful Solutions in His Books and Teachings

Dr. Gregory Jantz

SEATTLE , WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Gregory Jantz has built a worldwide reputation for his insightful advice on healing and care, made public through volumes of published books and contributions to sources like the Huffington Post. He is renowned for helping patients across the globe overcome eating disorders, chronic anxiety, stress, and depression.

Eating disorder specialist Dr. Gregory Jantz has spent decades researching various chronic issues and the roots of their problems in his patients. He pioneered “whole-person care,” a tactful approach to overcoming obstacles which address various life perspectives to uncover the source of patient issues. In this way, he’s helped thousands of people around the world heal and achieve positive change, allowing them to become the best versions of themselves.

For over thirty years, Dr. Gregory Jantz has carefully listened to his patients and contributed professional help that goes beyond prescription medicine, which he learned was often a disappointing one-size-fits-all solution. He’s the author of more than 30 self-help books with titles like Seven Answers for Anxiety, Hope & Healing from Emotional Abuse, and Ten Tips for Parenting the Smartphone Generation.

Dr. Gregory Jantz has gained a wide understanding of a range of health subjects, but he dedicates a bulk of his time to uncovering solutions for patients suffering from depression. His whole-person approach to care has proven to be a useful ally along the way.

“In a whole-person treatment approach, the entire body is recognized as an important component in depression,” says Dr. Gregory Jantz. “The whole-person approach accepts the body as a complex organism and looks for systemic reasons for depression.”

His research and treatments have helped him prove that the body doesn’t simply respond to depression; it’s an active participant and has the capacity to improve or worsen symptoms of depression with time. Through his whole-person approach, Dr. Gregory Jantz can examine emotional, environmental, physical, and spiritual factors that may contribute and find unique ways of mitigating the problem.

He’s published many articles on depression on his own blog as well as penned a series of books on the subject (which can be purchased through his website). On the topic of depression, interested readers will encounter full texts such as Five Keys to Dealing with Depression and Happy for the Rest of Your Life. Dr. Jantz is praised for his simple style and his easy-to-follow narrative, which ensures his work is accessible to the masses.

Later this year, Dr. Gregory Jantz will release Healing Depression for Life along with an accompanying workbook to help readers track and map out their progress. In this book, he coaches readers through their symptoms and “reveals the treatments, practices, and lifestyle changes that can provide lasting relief from depression.”

Dr. Gregory Jantz, through teachings, books, and his treatment facility The Center, A Place of Hope ensures that anyone suffering from symptoms of depression can readily find a personalized solution that fits their exact needs.

Health Care Professionals: Become Part of the Climate Change Solution at MGH Institute of Health Professions Symposium

The Center is the first-of-its-kind, nurse-led initiative created to address ways all health care professionals can respond to the impact of climate change

Several experts, including former EPA administrator Gina McCarthy, will discuss ways to help patients at April 6 event in Boston.

BOSTON, MA, USA, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Each day, health care professionals help patients whose lives are impacted by climate change because of poor air quality, nutrition and food insecurity, food-, water-, and vector-borne diseases, mental health issues, and much more. These issues disproportionately affect low-income individuals, some communities of color, and those with higher vulnerability to disease and chronic health conditions.

And it’s only going to get worse unless something’s done, and quickly.

Health practitioners can discover ways to leverage their influence and expertise to support the transition to climate-smart healthcare through advocacy, education, research, and clinical practice on April 6 at “Reducing the Impact of Climate Change on Health: The Role of Health Care Professionals,” a day-long symposium held on the campus of MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston.

Gina McCarthy, former US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator from 2013-2017 in the Obama Administration and currently the director of the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, is the event’s keynote speaker. Her talk will be followed by several health care experts who will lead the audience in robust discussions leading to tangible steps to improve the lives of patients. These discussions will include identifying the risks of health climate change, advocating for climate/environmental justice, and mitigating the impact of climate change on health and well-being.

The symposium is presented by the MGH Institute of Health Professions' Center for Climate Change, Climate Justice, and Health – the first-of-its-kind, nurse-led initiative created to address ways all health care professionals can respond to the impact of climate change. The Center’s eleven faculty members have published books and articles on climate change and presented at national and international conferences.

Fabulous Diamonds, Marine Paintings and MidCentury Modern Classics at Michaan’s in April

Michaan’s April 13 Gallery Auction promises to sustain the momentum created by the exciting monthly sales in 2019’s first quarter. Fine diamonds are as abundant as flowers in springtime. A lush Bay Area landscape by an Italian painter of wide renown is a leading highlight. Midcentury furniture by Gerald McCabe of Santa Monica is not to be missed. A massive red embroidered silk panel is among the Asian art treasures. Michaan’s is a premier destination for worldwide jewelry buyers, whether they seek period heirlooms or contemporary jewelry from fine estates. In April the selection features the designers Roberto Coin, Tiffany & Co. including Frank Gehry for Tiffany, Marina B., David Yurman and more. April’s birthstone is the diamond — symbolizing “endurance” — and the auction offers beautiful diamonds in many precious pieces. Fine diamonds in the hands of a legendary designer … does it get any better? Roberto Coin’s "Appassionata" bracelet of diamonds, 18k rose and white gold is a stunner estimated at $4,000-$6,000. The chic gold basket weave design is accented by a diamond-encrusted clasp. The bracelet by Bonebakker of

Amsterdam comprises 49 round brilliant-cut diamonds set in 18k white gold ($3,000-$5,000). Diamond rings abound in April such as the 14k yellow gold ring featuring two old European-cut diamonds, each about one carat, presented in a vintage box ($2,500-$3,500). Another ring centers a round 1.85 carat diamond flanked by two pear-cut diamonds in a platinum mounting ($4,000-$6,000). Diamond jewelry highlights also include several fine necklaces, an Art Deco bracelet ($1,000-$1,500) and a diamond horseshoe stickpin ($400-$600). Beautiful period jewelry pieces in the April auction include the Elgin 14k gold hunting case pocket watch with original box ($1,200-$1,600) and the exquisitely detailed Victorian enamel, seed pearl and gold cross pendant ($500-$700). Also featured are the diamond-accented boulder opal pendant ($3,000-$5,000) and the translucent jade Guanyin with GIA report ($5,000-$7,000). Michele Cascella (1892-1989) painted Impressionistic landscapes and florals in his native Italy from an early age. His vibrant works were shown often at the Venice Biennale, in Paris and internationally. By the mid twentieth century he had made Palo Alto, CA his second home. In Palo Alto Cascella painted “Dr. Jim Inglis Home and Garden,” offered by Michaan’s at $8,000-$10,000 on April 13. The large 1984 oil on canvas descended to the present owner through the family of Dr. Inglis, who enjoyed serving as a docent and gardener at Filoli, the historic garden estate in Woodside. Also featured are works by American painter Charles Herbert Woodbury (18641940). A founding member of the artist’s colony at Ogunquit, Maine, Woodbury is best known for marine paintings of uncommon expressiveness. His works can be found in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and at Harvard University’s Fogg Art Museum, among others. A Charles Herbert Woodbury coastal view and a landscape are estimated at $3,000-$5,000 each in the April 13 sale. The lot comprising “Study of Water” and “Girls on the Beach” is offered at $2,000-$4,000. Michaan’s Fine Art specialist Susan Paffrath is delighted to feature ceramic artist Claude Conover (1907-1994) in the April sale. After a 30-year career in commercial art, Conover turned to clay. He developed a disciplined and comprehensive process for creating ceramic art, and his singular works are widely collected by museums and private enthusiasts. In April Michaan’s offers a Claude Conover vessel at $4,000-$6,000 and a bowl at $3,000-$4,000. The Midcentury furniture of Gerald McCabe, with its organic inspiration and gorgeous craftsmanship, needs no backstory to interest buyers. But his story is

worth telling nonetheless. Straddling two significant creative worlds, design and music, Gerald McCabe had an orbit of influence that far surpasses most furniture makers. In Santa Monica he founded McCabe’s Guitar Shop where the great Ry Cooder, at just age 13, discovered the instrument. At the same time McCabe was transforming beautiful wood, glass and steel into modern furniture that continues to thrill collectors. McCabe said “ I think my furniture has a lasting quality. When you come into a room, it doesn’t hit you over the head, doesn’t fall into a category, it’s an entity by itself and is still appealing years later.” On April 13, Michaan’s offers a round oak dining table ($700-$900) and the Shedua wood tall cabinet ($1,800-$2,200) both from Gerald McCabe’s Orange Crate Modern line for the Eon Furniture Company of Santa Monica. A sleek and fabulous oak and lucite entertainment console, unmarked but possibly by McCabe, is offered at $700-$900. Also in the auction is a Gerald McCabe trestle dining table ($700$900). Collectors of Asian art have many fine choices in April, the selection curated by Annie Zheng who recently joined Michaan’s team of appraisers and specialists. Exemplary cinnabar boxes carved with decorative and symbolic motifs are estimated at $3,000-$5,000 for the lot of two. A handsome tripod censer, of bronze with silver inlay, pierced wood cover and carved jadeite finial, bears a ‘Shisou’ mark in archaistic design. Estimated at $3,000-$5,000, it is one of several fine censers in the sale. Chinese furniture includes the pair of bamboo form armchairs ($300-$400). Adorning Michaan’s gallery walls in April is the magnificent Chinese red silk embroidered panel, circa 1840 to 1900. Measuring a full 120” x 55.5”, it features three marvelous figures: Ma Gu, the female immortal; Shou Lou, god of longevity, and a young boy. Bats, deer, cranes, lingzhi and other Buddhist symbols decorate the ornate border ($3,000-$5,000). Michaan’s Auctions offers a variety of platforms to bidders.

Austin Trahern Reveals Top Tips to Conducting a Successful Business Meeting

Austin Trahern

Successful business meetings start with successful people and Austin Trahern reveals how to achieve both simultaneously.

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Conducting business meetings are always stressful. Regardless of whether the businessperson is green or has done it a million times, failure is still a possible outcome. It does not matter how unlikely or how surefire the topic is to impress, people are unpredictable. Therefore, when going into a business meeting, the only true catalyst the conductor can control is their presence.

Fortunately, creating the right self-image is all a business needs to be successful. Austin Trahern reveals the top tips to conducting a successful business meeting. The best part is, everything that is needed, is under the presenter’s command.

Come Prepared

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail,” Benjamin Franklin is credited with this phrase. While the quote was likely printed on many middle school posters the truth in this statement is nevertheless relevant. The fear of failing can manifest in many ways. The most common way, though, is lack of adequate preparation. Knowing what you are talking about, down to the letter helps pave the road to success by facilitating three cornerstones.

First, preparation plans out the meeting’s topics and helps the presenter grasp the heart of their purpose. Second, it also helps the presenter know what to inquire about. If there are any issues, preparation will help a presenter mitigate those problems before the presentation. Third, being prepared helps to facilitate the other tips that ensure business meeting success.

Show Confidence in Every Aspect of Your Demeanor

Confidence is the factor which decides who wins and who loses; who succeeds and who fails. Failure is inspired by a lack of preparation, which allows a seed of admitting inability to fester. That seed will culminate until the moment of presentation; at which time it will effectively suffocate any remaining sliver of hope you have of success.

Although, preparation alone cannot save you from failure. Confidence comes from preparation, but it is your demeanor that truly entices success. From the way a presenter talks, moves, and even enters the room is an indication of their confidence. An audience will notice these things and unfortunately, the level of confidence you have will dictate their first impression of you. Most of the time, that first impression is what will decide whether you will succeed or fail. What you say is secondary to the level of command you have over yourself, your presentation, and the audience’s attention.

Control the Room

The ability to control a room is based on both preparation and confidence, according to Austin Trahern. After all, people are attending this meeting for a purpose. Whether it is a staff meeting or you are meeting with a hopeful investor, they are giving you their time. They have already deemed the meeting worthy of a portion of their day. Thus, you have already established an element of control. The hard part is keeping it. To keep it, you must be worthy of it. To be worthy of it, you need to showcase your knowledge, your passion, and your confidence. Give them that in a concise package and you will not only succeed, you will have earned their respect.

In summation, the way you perform in the meeting dictates the outcome. Being prepared, displaying confidence, and controlling the room is vital to conducting a successful business meeting. Austin Trahern knows this and has experienced first hand the power of these devices and has excelled tremendously because of them. Yet, he is also aware that it is not good enough to simply understand these concepts. To be successful, utilization and practice is the truest form of proof. Therefore, only one question remains…what are you waiting for?

Abraham Kiswani explains key elements of professional Taser training

Abraham Kiswani

Certified security contractor Abraham Kiswani shares an insight into the professional Taser training process.

BURBANK, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Formal professional Taser trainer certification provides the basis for security industry experts, such as Abraham Kiswani, to teach approved courses focused on hands-on weapons training, practical knowledge, and the real-life scenarios where such devices may make a life-saving difference. Here, Illinois-based Kiswani offers a closer look at the professional Taser training process.

Open to licensed security experts and employees, professional Taser training covers numerous topics and methodologies. "Topics include Taser technology, medical and safety information, legal issues, and tactical considerations," explains Kiswani, a veteran of more than 20 years in the security field.

"Other topics, meanwhile," he continues, "include voluntary exposure, the effects of neuromuscular incapacitation, targeting, probe removal, and post-incident considerations."

Certified to train both specialists and civilians in Taser usage, Abraham Kiswani has been a certified professional Taser instructor for more than 5 years. Of the methodologies involved in professional Taser training, Kiswani goes on to explain that these include a number of drills and exercises, many of which require physical exertion. "Accordingly, it's important to be in good physical condition," adds the expert.

Currently, such drills include both firing and non-firing drills, isolation exercises, stress courses, and the undertaking of various Taser-related scenarios. Prior online exercises may also need to be completed, according to Abraham Kiswani, with professional Taser training certification lasting for two years.

While the term 'taser' has today become synonymous with various conducted electrical weapons designed to facilitate neuromuscular incapacitation, 'Taser'—or 'TASER'—is, in fact, a brand of such weapons—also commonly referred to as 'TASER Self-Defense'—supplied by Axon, formerly TASER International. First developed by Jack Cover, 'TASER' is also an acronym for 'Thomas A. Swift's Electric Rifle.'

"Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle," explains Kiswani, wrapping up, "is a young adult novel first published in 1911 under the pen name Victor Appleton, today perhaps most notable for having inspired the name of the original TASER device."

'TASER Self-Defense' is a division of Axon Enterprise, Inc., a publicly traded company headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Based out of Chicago, Burbank, Bedford Park and Bridgeview, safety and security expert Abraham Kiswani is a Taser trained security consultant with more than two decades of experience in the field. A graduate of Alan B. Shepard High School in Palos Heights, Illinois, Kiswani's other interests include antique muscle cars, car rebuilding, sporting and movie memorabilia collecting, softball, scuba diving, skydiving, and cooking.

Michael Avery, Esq. reviews a recent Virginia Supreme Court decision on a personal injury case involving a deceased party.

The Avery Law Firm (N/A:N/A)

The Virginia Supreme Court navigated the long history of the Dead Man’s statute and the legislative adoption of the rule. However, any changes to such rule are the province of the legislature. ”

— Michael Avery, personal injury attorney in Fairfax, Virginia

FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a recent case, the Supreme Court of Virginia reviewed the modern criticism of the Dead Man’s statute and the expansive version adopted by the Virginia legislature. Attorney Michael Avery, in a new case comment, summarizes the relevant arguments in an article available on his blog, https://michaelaveryesq.law.blog

Plaintiff Debra Shumate was involved in an automobile accident with William Earl Thompson. The lawsuit was originally against Thompson, but later substituted his estate as the defendant when Thompson passed away due to reasons not related to the accident. Estate agreed that Thompson was at fault and conceded the issue of liability and went to trial over the issue of damages alone.

Shumate described the accident as one with significant collision. “The evidence presented at trial established that Shumate was stopped at a traffic light when she observed a sports car driven by Thompson moving toward the rear of her sedan. She applied the brake in anticipation of the collision and put her arm in front of her son, Joey, who was riding in the passenger seat. Joey described the impact as a ‘hard slam’ and said he saw Shumate go forward and hit her head.” Shumate estimated the speed of the collision at somewhere between 25 to 35 miles per hour.

Thompson’s estate asserted that the collision was a low speed affair. Thompson’s passenger estimated the speed at 5 to 6 miles per hour. Thompson told his son that the speed was 5 to 7 miles per hour, a hearsay statement which was introduced pursuant to Dead Man’s statute.

Evidence also showed that Shumate had three automobile accidents prior to the most recent accident in 2011. “In 1993, a vehicle struck her car at around fifty-five miles per hour, resulting in her losing consciousness and suffering arm, leg, and lower back pain. She was rear-ended in 2001, causing injuries to her neck, knee, and right ankle. And in 2007, she was a passenger in a vehicle that ran off the road causing ‘immediate pain in [her] neck and back.’” Evidence showed that Shumate visited a pain clinic several months prior to the accident and also nine days after the accident on October 27, 2011, but “[n]otably, the physician’s notes from the October 27 appointment contain no reference to the October 18, 2011 collision.”

“Shumate underwent a third spine surgery in March 2012. The surgeon who performed that procedure testified that Shumate reported the same pain level before and after the 2011 collision at issue in this case and that this pain was the reason for the surgery. The surgeon also reported that Shumate had preexisting degenerative changes in her neck and spine not attributable to the 2011 collision.” The estate’s expert also opined that while the emergency room visit was a reasonable precautionary measure, he was of the opinion that the surgery was unrelated to the 2011 accident.

Jury returned a verdict of zero dollars on damages and Shumate moved for set aside the jury verdict. She argued that even the defense expert conceded that at least the emergency room visit made sense. The motion was denied and Shumate eventually appealed and raised two assignments of error: (1) misapplication of the Dead Man’s statute allowing the deceased’s hearsay statements and (2) trial erred in refusing to set aside the jury verdict.

The Virginia Supreme Court navigated the long history of the Dead Man’s statute in Virginia and what led to the 1919 legislative adoption of the rule. The Court also noted the modern criticism of the Dead Man’s statute and the expansive version adopted by the Virginia legislature, but noted that such is the province of the legislature and not the court. Thus, Plaintiff’s argument “that unless [the Court] adopt[s] her interpretation of the statute, ‘the party asserting the Dead Man’s Rule could bring in a plethora of out of court, unreliable hearsay of what the decedent said to others to bolster unfairly the decedent’s case’—is actually an accurate statement of the statute.” But still, the decedent’s description of the accident to his son was properly admitted.

The Court also rejected the second assignment of error. With respect to the argument that at least the emergency room bill was a damage that should have been awarded, the Court explained that “[t]his contention misconstrues Leivy’s [defense expert’s] testimony. This statement did not contradict Leivy’s opinion that Shumate suffered no injury from the collision; instead, it simply acknowledged that it was not irrational for someone with Shumate’s medical history to visit the emergency room after any automobile accident to make sure she was not injured.” Therefore, the judgment of the trial court was affirmed.

The case is Shumate v. Mitchell, Record No. 180012. – The complete article is available on Mr. Avery’s blog at https://michaelaveryesq.law.blog

Education in China Market: Global Share, Size, Trends and Growth Analysis Forecast to 2019-2024

Wiseguyreports.Com Adds “Education -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2024” To Its Research Database

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Education In China Market


The ancient education of China began in the Chinese classical works, rather than religious organizations. In Chinese history, clearly documented school for formal teaching began in Xia Dynasty (c. 2100-1600 B.C.). Since the beginning of 21st Century, the Chinese government gave priority to education and put forward the strategic policy of “revitalizing the nation through science and education". Deepening educational system reform, strengthening quality education, and adhering to make nine-year compulsory education universal and eliminating illiteracy are the most important tasks of education.

The Chinese education system follows a specific pattern where early childhood education (pre-primary) is followed by primary school (Elementary school), middle school, secondary school (High school), and post-secondary (Tertiary) education. There are two major examinations for students undergoing school education in China, Zhongkao and Gaokao. Students begin their nine-year compulsory education at about six years old, and they progress through elementary school and junior high school over the following nine years. At the end of Grade Nine, all students are required to take Zhongkao, which is the cumulative assessment of this nine-year education period and is the entrance examination for senior high school.

The overall growth of the industry will be driven by rising responsiveness of people towards the benefits of early education and continuing education and growing demand for online teaching methods. The trends observed in China regarding the education industry are growing access to internet and declining rates of young population. While on one side, internet opens up the opportunities to grab overseas education, simultaneously it poses a threat to domestic educational institutions. Another challenge faced by the industry is declining rate of young population reflected by the fact that enrollments in primary and secondary education have been declining since 2007.

The report, “China Education Industry” analyzes the prevailing condition of the industry along with its major segments including pre-primary, primary, K-12, post-secondary and adult/continuing education. Chinese domestic and international education market along with specific dependence on the US education as well as the market dynamics of the Chinese education industry are being presented in this report. The major players, TAL Education, TARENA International, China Distance Education Holding and New Oriental have being profiled and compared, along with their key financials and strategies for growth.
