Public television has never been more important…I am deeply honored to work with our engaged Board of Directors to continue to use the power of media for the public good.”

— Louise Bryson

L.A. , CA, USA, October 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Public Media Group of Southern California, the parent organization of PBS SoCal, KCET and Link TV, today named Louise Bryson as Chairperson of the Board of Directors and Anne Gates as Vice Chair of the Board. The new leadership team is committed to serving the public good through the organization’s commitment to education, the arts, public affairs and social justice issues. Bryson will succeed 38-year Disney veteran Dick Cook, who is stepping down after seven years as Chair, but will remain on the Board.

Bryson brings to the position a 30+ year career in media, including President of Distribution for Lifetime Entertainment Services, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Lifetime Movie Networks as well as serving 12 years on the Board of Trustees of the J. Paul Getty Trust, four as Chair of the Board. Gates previously served as President of MGA Entertainment, the largest privately-held U.S. toy company, and as Executive Vice President and CFO of The Disney Company’s Consumer Products Division.

“We are excited to have this extraordinary leadership from two civic and entertainment business leaders. I look forward to collaborating with both Louise Bryson and Anne Gates as we advance our public media mission to provide an essential connection for Southern Californians to their community and the wider world,” said Andrew Russell, President and CEO of Public Media Group of Southern California. “As our new Board Chair, Louise Bryson is a widely respected leader whose depth of experience across philanthropic and creative organizations makes her ideally suited to help our stations navigate opportunities during this continually changing media landscape.”

“Public television has never been more important. I am proud of the role our local stations have played these past months with the challenges our communities have faced. PBS SoCal, KCET and Link TV have an opportunity to strengthen the fabric of Southern California and share distinctive perspectives with the rest of the country. I am deeply honored to build on the significant accomplishments of Dick Cook and Andrew Russell and to work with our engaged Board of Directors to continue to use the power of media for the public good,” said Louise Bryson.

Bryson started her career as a producer/writer for public television and has continued her interest in public media by serving as a Lifetime Trustee of Southern California Public Radio, a former Chair of the Board of KCET and was previously a member of the PBS National Board, which honored her with the 1998 Award for Excellence in Public Television Leadership. Previously, she was Senior Vice President at FX networks and a member of the NBC team that initiated the first Pay-Per-View Olympics as well as General Manager of Z Channel. She was elected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2010 and serves on the Academy’s Trust and Board. In 2010, Bryson was made Chair Emerita of the J. Paul Getty Trust and co-founded a council for the Getty Conservation Institute for which she continues to serve as Chair. She also serves on the boards of Huntington Memorial Hospital, California Community Foundation, CalArts and the Public Policy Institute of California.

“PBS was founded on the belief that media can be a powerful force for education and inspiration, so I am committed to building upon our strong legacy of high-quality educational programming in order to meet the needs of our community.” commented Anne Gates. “Education is of particular importance to me, as public media continues to deliver such a value to Southern Californians and that includes early learners and their care-givers, especially those in low-income communities. We will continue to make sure they have access to learning resources that assist them as they prepare their entire families for success in school and in life.”

Gates has been in global consumer products businesses for over 35 years including the role of Managing Director for Disney Consumer Products Europe and Emerging Markets based in London. She also worked for Pepsi, in both the US and Europe, Bear Stearns (VP, Investment Banking), AT&T (Marketing) and Bell Labs (Research). She is currently on the Kroger Board, the Tapestry, Inc. Board and is a member of the Raymond James Financial Board. Gates also serves on the Boards of Cadre, the UC Berkeley Foundation and Salzburg Global Seminar. Gates has also been named to the Power List of Britain’s 100 most influential black people.

Russell continued, “I am very grateful for the leadership of our outgoing Board Chair Dick Cook, in particular for leading the company through major corporate milestones for the organization, including the recent KCET merger with PBS SoCal, KCET’s 50thAnniversary, the FCC Spectrum Auction and the KCET-Link TV merger. We all look forward to his ongoing commitment, insight and leadership as he continues his ten years of service on the Board.”

“As a beacon of outstanding creativity and a media organization uniquely committed to serving its audiences and educating its community, the Public Media Group of Southern California will benefit from this new leadership team and I look forward to working with this tremendous group of leaders that comprise our Board of Directors,” commented Dick Cook, who continues to serve as Chairman and CEO for Dick Cook Studios after serving as Chairman of The Walt Disney Studios from 2000-2009.

The Public Media Group of Southern California tells stories that matter through original programs that reflect the diversity of our region and through the full schedule of trusted PBS programs. Our Southern California content channels PBS SoCal and KCET are available for free on internet-connected screens via the PBS Video App and seven local broadcast channels. Link TV channel is available nationally on DirecTV and Dish Network. A donor-supported community institution, PMGSC sparks the sharing of ideas at in-person cultural events and community conversations and delivers social impact through a variety of services including those that prepare our most vulnerable children for school.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Teressa Wilcox to be Featured on Close Up Radio

WESTMINSTER, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Happiness is found in the midst of relationships. This is also the place we meet pain and grief. Life is the process of learning how to live with both.

That’s the philosophy of Teressa Wilcox, a licensed marriage and family therapist in private practice dedicated to healing trauma.

“I believe we can genuinely change the trajectory of my clients’ lives through healing,” says Teressa. “It's really tough to hear horrible things––it can get overwhelming––but every so often, you're going to see a powerful transformation.”

Teressa is passionate about the evolution of knowledge and technology, and the field of neuropsychiatry. Trauma focused therapy has made incredible strides through eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Teressa provides a safe environment for clients to talk about their experience, solve problems and learn effective ways to be heard and listen to others by weaving Christian Counseling and EMDR into traditional psychotherapeutic approaches.

“We now understand that the brain stores trauma differently than other memories, including feelings, smells, thoughts, observations, sensations,” explains Teressa. “EMDR is about reprocessing memory. When part traumatic memory is triggered, a person body will go into survival mode. EMDR opens the file to clean it out, essentially telling the brain, ‘We don't need to store this in a trauma file anymore.’

Teressa says one of the beautiful things about EMDR is that she and the client don't necessarily need to talk. It’s much gentler on the client and the process has less risk in retraumatizing them.

“What I love about EMDR is we can move a lot faster,” says Teressa. “It doesn't take a lifetime in therapy to get relief. I see my role in this is really not necessarily the task I have. I believe it is more about being there for people to be supportive or help them through an uncomfortable situation and make sense of it.”

Teressa serves as an associate professor at Hope International University, where she teaches classes and supervises students who are learning how to be therapist in the community clinic.

“To be a mentor is just such a beautiful way to leave a legacy,” says Teressa. “Seeing that next generation of therapists coming up, I want to keep this tradition going.”

Close Up Radio will feature Teressa Wilcox in an interview with Jim Masters on October 27th at 5pm EDT

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Einstein.gg is pleased to announce a rise in its subscribers meeting the criteria to play in the coveted Champion League. Reaching this elite League within Fortnite is necessary to qualify for paid tournaments such as the World Cup and the DreamHack Open, and is seen by many as the threshold to becoming a pro Fortnite player.

Downsizing? The Kovels List 7 Things You Should Not Throw Away

The Kovels say take care when clearing your clutter—some things are worth more than you think.

CLEVELAND, OHIO, US, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The antiques and collectibles experts at Kovels.com are always asked what to keep and what not to keep when cleaning house or downsizing. Here are 7 things you should not throw away—they may have more value than you might expect.

1. Old typewriters, especially the red Olivetti Valentine in a case
The first practical typewriter was invented in the 1860s; then came electric typewriters, portable typewriters, and by the 1970s, word processors and computers. One of the most collectible typewriters is the red plastic Olivetti typewriter designed by Ettore Sottsass in 1968. It is an icon, displayed in museums as a classic example of modern design. If you have a red typewriter check for these clues: It will say” Valentine” or “Valentine S” on the lid. Early examples have a small ribbon spool cap while newer ones look more like a hat. And on the back near the handle on the frame is the name of the city where it was made. A working Olivetti Valentine typewriter with a case, both in excellent condition, is worth about $500.

2. Danish wooden toys from the 1950s
In 1951, Kay Bojesen, a Danish prize-winning designer of silver wares, made a group of hand carved wooden toy animals, very modern-looking, with moving arms and legs. There was a monkey, hippo, zebra, elephant, and birds. All were made of teak and a lighter wood, 12 inches high and smaller, and some were painted. A 12-inch monkey recently sold at auction for $5,909. The large size is rare; others sell for less. A lot of two vintage Kay Bojesen midcentury modern elephant toys sold for $1,560 in a Florida auction.

3. Miriam Haskell costume jewelry
Costume jewelry by Miriam Haskell sells for higher prices than most costume jewelry. Her elaborate beaded necklaces and pins with large colored glass stones can sell for up to $1,500 if marked. Haskell (1899–1981) made jewelry from the 1920s to 1960s. She used gilt filigree, fake pearls, crystals, glass beads from Murano and “rose montees,” crystals cut in the shapes of roses in a silver mount that could be sewn in place. Because the designs are so intricate and the pieces made with so many special details, prices are determined by size and condition. Corroded metal and chipped or missing stones dramatically lower the value, as does the lack of a Haskell mark. Pins with large, colored center stones that resemble emeralds or rubies, and extravagant necklaces sell for the most. Look for the vintage marks; the company is still in business. A Miriam Haskell pin and earrings with green Czech glass, rhinestones and baroque pearls, and the early stamped Miriam Haskell horseshoe mark sold in an online jewelry auction for $750.

4. Commercial perfume bottles and large exhibit factices
Some perfumes were packaged in expensive glass containers like those by Lalique, and the empty bottles are worth hundreds of dollars. Also, department stores were loaned giant-sized bottles called factices—ten times the size of a normal perfume bottle—for display. Many perfume bottle collectors tried to buy these large bottles, and some were lucky enough to get one. They sell for as much as $500 today. Even the regular-sized empty bottles, if made by an important company, sell for over $100.

5. Lamp hardware
Check before you throw out parts of old lamps. Auction houses are selling pieces of original lamps, such as the acorn chain pulls for Handel lamps or the center fittings that hold lampshades. A lot consisting of Tiffany and Handel lamp parts that held the shade in place just sold for $3,520.

6. Firecracker labels
Vintage Asian firecracker labels are very elaborate and very collectible. Firecracker crate labels, as well as the individual firecracker labels, sell.

7. Sewer covers
Sewer covers from streets that were torn up and repaved are being used as tops for small tables. They are also selling well.

Dr. Uma Naidoo, Harvard Psychiatrist, Explains How Her Book Improves Mental Health & Nutrition During the Pandemic

By Dr. Uma Naidoo

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Prior to COVID-19 the most common mental health condition in the US was anxiety, three times more at least than depression. Depression though causes the most amount of disability worldwide and people therefore often think of it as more common.

With COVID, emotional health of our nation has suffered. Some are suffering in silence while others are taking more medications than ever before. We know this because the company Express Scripts reported that the number of new prescriptions for anti-anxiety medications was already up by 37.7% by the middle of March. By June this year the medication sertraline went on shortage in the US, it is often prescribed for anxiety and/or depression. The most concerning of all the statistics was those shared by the CDC showing that during the pandemic, 40% of Americans reported struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues. Even more scary is that 11% of Americans have seriously considered suicide. As a nutritional psychiatrist that is one of the scariest statistics I have heard in a very long time.

What has happened during the pandemic?

• Increased Processed food sales
• Meal-time confusion
• Home Schooling
• Everyone seems to be baking!
• Multi-generational meals (many different ages living at home and each eating a different diet )
• Mealtimes are askew
• Adult children back home
• Job Loss
• Lack of structure
• Ongoing Quarantine
• Food deserts
• Food insecurity
• Less active – gyms closed
• Abuse on the increase
• Increased drugs and alcohol
• Zoom fatigue & tech issues
• Uncertainty & Fear
• Stress Eating
• Natural disasters
• Personal loss

Our mental health is suffering, and these changes are continuing, studies show that burnout is on the rise as well. Taking all this into account, where do we go from here for our mental health.

Should we all just be taking more medication? Perhaps some of us really do need to be seeing a therapist and a psychiatrist as we need the additional support to help us adjust to this new way of life.

I would argue we can do more to empower and help ourselves. How? Simply through how we are eating. Our nutrition is the basis of our better mental health. Just like we cannot exercise out of a bad diet, we cannot smile our way out of a bad diet either.

The time is NOW.

The time to embrace some positive small habit changes is right now. Today. Research shows us that our gut microbes can change within 24 hours based on how we are eating. So, make that choice to get junk food today or a healthier option. You won’t know the difference immediately, but over time your gut microbiome could be disrupted by junk food or begin to heal with healthier food. More importantly a happy gut is a happy mood. This is because of the actual communication highway that exists between the gut and the brain, called the vagus nerve, which sends signals back and forth ultimately impacting our emotional health by how we are eating.

If we don’t do something, act now, start today to help ourselves… we are going to continue to suffer emotionally as a nation. Suicides will increase, burnout will worsen, and our emotional health will reach even worse numbers. We all eat, we eat every day and at least a few times a day ….. why not eat for our better emotional health so that we fortify our brain as best we can during this ongoing pandemic. This is something we can control while with all other things it feels as though the pandemic with the necessary safety rules and regulations are outside of our control.

My goal in sharing my new book with the world is that it can be a guide to improving our emotional well-being while doing something (eating) that we have to do anyway. It is a low hanging fruit so to speak for finding our way forward and taking better care of ourselves. Perhaps it is time to cut back on all the baking, processed food and fast foods that some of us turned to during these difficult times. Or perhaps you are eating healthy, but you can up your game with keeping up with hydrating, exercising more and perhaps working on improving your sleep. Even though each of us has a unique set of emotions, we can impact our emotional and brain health through how we are eating. I say why not? Why not fortify our brain health especially as we enter the darker cooler days of late fall and we know that for many, moods dip during these seasons?

My book: “This Is Your Brain on Food

“This Is Your Brain on Food” is a groundbreaking book on what to eat to bolster your mental health. If you are depressed, anxious, distracted, cognitively foggy or have a history of PTSD, this book will explain what you should eat, what you should avoid, and how this impacts your brain. The book is written by me, Dr. Uma Naidoo, a Harvard psychiatrist who is the Director of Nutritional and Lifestyle Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital, a nutrition specialist and a professional chef. It is a practical , realistic and research-based review of what we now understand about food and mental health, written in a simple and easy-to-grasp style by a world expert.

My book is a top ten bestseller in Canada and just recently won the Best of Los Angeles Award – “Best Mental Health Book – 2020”. The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed five years ago and consists of over 7,000 professional members living and working in Southern California and celebrates the best people, places and things in Los Angeles. If you or someone you love is looking for a way to feel less depressed and anxious and more emotionally stable, energized, and clear, “This is Your Brain on Food” is the definitive guide to protecting your brain during these uncertain and stressful times.

Acclaimed Author, Steven Markoff, Wins Best of Los Angeles Award "Best Political Book – 2020"

Steven Markoff

Best of LA Award

The Case Against George W. Bush

“We're honored to include Steven Markoff and his new book The Case Against George W. Bush into our BoLAA family.” ~Aurora DeRose

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Steven Markoff, acclaimed author, and his new book The Case Against George W. Bush wins Best of Los Angeles Award – “Best Political Book – 2020”, according to Aurora DeRose, award coordinator for the Best of Los Angeles Award community.

The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed five years ago and consists of over 7,000 professional members living and working in Southern California and celebrates the best people, places and things in Los Angeles. It celebrates the best people, places and things in Los Angeles with a slogan “No Ads. No B.S. Only the Best.”

“The mission of the community is to celebrate the best of Los Angeles and allow its community members to connect with other members who share the highest standards of quality and integrity,” expresses DeRose. "We're honored to include Steven Markoff and his new book The Case Against George W. Bush into our BoLAA family.”

Acclaimed Author, Steven Markoff's, new book The Case Against George W. Bush, is set to be released October 27, 2020, and is available for pre-order for $28.00. The Case Against George W. Bush is an important historical documented perspective. In the book, George W. Bush is accused of three crimes:

Criminal negligence, because Bush turned a blind eye to the extensive intel he received (beginning even before taking office) that we would be attacked by Al-Qaeda while falsely telling the American people the danger to our country was Saddam Hussein and his WMD. The carnage and damage from Bush not attempting to deal with those threats came to fruition when we were attacked by Al-Qaeda on 9/11.

Torture, because Bush, in contravention of US and international law, approved if not boasted about torturing captives and secretly sending some off to other countries to be tortured.

Misleading our country into unnecessarily attacking Iraq in 2003: The estimated deaths from that war exceeded 500,000, many of them women and children. The destruction of other lives, including returning wounded vets and families torn asunder was incalculable.

The case against Bush is told through almost 600 sourced quotes from over 100 published books and reports. Authors quoted include those from all over the political spectrum including former British Prime Minister Tony Blair; Hans Blix, head of the United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission from March 2000 to June 2003; President George W. Bush; former Vice President Richard “Dick” Cheney; former US Senator Russ Feingold; former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld; and writers and journalists such as Steve Coll, Frank Rich, Craig Unger, and Bob Woodward.

In addition, Richard A. Clarke, a man known and respected internationally as a counter-terrorism expert, wrote the book’s Foreword. The first few sentences of that Foreword are:

“For some Americans, George W. Bush looks good by comparison to the incumbent, Donald Trump. In his post-presidency, Bush has devoted himself to worthy causes and acted in a bipartisan manner. The 43rd president should, however, be judged not by comparison to America’s worst president, nor by what Bush may have done after leaving office. He should be evaluated for his actions in office, his nonfeasance, misfeasance and malfeasance. This volume from Steven Markoff provides the evidence for such an evaluation. You can judge for yourself.”

100% of the royalties the author would normally receive from the book are being directly donated to the non-profit National September 11 Memorial & Museum in NYC [www.911memorial.org]. "If you know of others who may be interested in this book, we’d appreciate you telling them about it," states Steve Markoff.
