— Bob Dodge, Guest Appraiser, Pawn Stars

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, USA, January 26, 2019 / — On Monday, January 28, renowned antiquities expert and auction gallery owner Bob Dodge will debut as a guest appraiser on HISTORY Channel’s smash-hit reality show Pawn Stars.

Dodge is the founder and executive director of Artemis Gallery in suburban Boulder, Colorado, a boutique auction house with an international clientele and impeccable reputation for selling premier antiquities and ethnographic art. Through his reputation in the antiques trade, he was invited to join the cast of colorful characters at the “World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop” in Las Vegas for the taping of three episodes in this, the series’ 19th season.

Pawn Stars is centered on the multi-generational Harrison family, who use their sharp-eyed skills to assess what’s real and what’s fake from the endless flow of merchandise that passes through their establishment’s doors. With his impeccable 25-year track record as an appraiser and dealer, Dodge is an ideal new addition to the cast, which currently consists of Rick Harrison, Rick’s son Corey – aka “Big Hoss” – and Corey’s longtime friend Austin “Chumlee” Russell.

“Joining Pawn Stars and taping three episodes for the 2019 season has been a fantastic experience,” said Dodge. “The Harrisons are real pros, both as appraisers and negotiators. The camera captures them as the authentic people they are. I think that’s why the show became an instant hit and rose to become the network’s highest-rated show.”

Pawn Stars airs on the HISTORY Channel on Monday nights at 10 p.m Eastern / 9 p.m. Central time.

Marina Edwards, Producer and Director, Opens Indiegogo Campaign for New Short Film

Actress, Producer, and Director Marina Edwards

Marina Edwards and Jon Edwards have opened up their new Indiegogo campaign for “My Love in the Sky,” a short film about a war veteran's challenges.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2019 / — Marina Edwards (co-writer, executive producer, director) and Jon Edwards (co-writer, executive producer) have opened up their new Indiegogo campaign for “My Love in the Sky,” a short film about a war veteran challenged by returning from Iraq to civilian life. The film is slated to be filmed in Los Angeles from February to March of 2019.

“We are motivated with all our respect to acknowledge the price our warriors have paid and continue to pay, for their service to our country,” explains Marina Edwards, “It is our desire to give back to those who served to defend the freedom in our world.”

The story follows Jake, an Army veteran of 20 years who, while on a humanitarian mission in Iraq, suffers the ultimate defeat in the loss of his copilot & best friend along with his helicopter. In doing so, he shatters his vertebrae and is sentenced to a wheelchair. Menawhile, Jake's wife Janet comes from an immigrant family who has made a lot of money through her hard work in real estate. She recognizes the meaning of love and commitment to be a military wife only when she is faced with Jake's return home. It is only through a complete recalibration as to what is important in their lives that we begin to see how this warrior family can possibly find their way back to civilian life together.

“It is our desire to give something back to those who served to defend our freedom in the form of this story,” continues Marina, “Many veterans are wounded in ways seen and unseen and our aim is to open our dialog with a human story about the power of love and lulnerability to create the healing process.” Veterans returning from war face many difficulties transitioning from military to civilian life. Studies released by the VA have revealed that every day around 20 war veterans commit suicide.

“Every day we are facing the effects of imbalance in our society. Suicide and mass shootings are just symptoms of deeper issues we contend with in our society,” states Marina, “Our goal is to join the dedicated people who spend their lives working to assist the many veterans affairs programs. Our focus is to support our veterans with communication, acknowledgement and respect as a pathway to healing.”

The production budget for the short film is $30,000, and the budget will pay for things including equipment, transportation costs, festival fees, and cast and crew expenses. Although the creative team has grown up in Los Angeles and forged many relationships within the industry, they still need a budget to make this film as professional as possible. Their hope, after funding this short film, is to possibly turn it into a feature.

“We feel obligated to acknowledge the powerful commitment our military soldiers offer with their willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice,” concludes Marina, “we want to shout out to all our active military and veterans that they are not alone and we in civilian life can do a better job to promote the crises in bringing our wounded veterans back from war.”

We chose to follow the group of African sculptures and masks with a superb collection of jazz recordings. The auction ends with money, and some of the most desirable coins of the twentieth century.”

— Serena Harragin

CLEVELAND, OHIO, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2019 / — A mid-week auction featuring an exciting decorative collection of African sculptures and masks, followed by a single-owner collection of jazz recordings, and finishing with an impressive collection of 19th & 20th Century American coins will be held Wednesday, February 20th, at 10 am Eastern time by Gray’s Auctioneers, online and live in Gray’s gallery.

The full catalog is up and pre-bidding is open at Bidding is also available on and Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. In-person previews will be held Thursday thru Wednesday, Feb. 14-20, from 10-5; and Saturday, February 16th, from noon-4 pm. Gray’s gallery, for previews and auction, is at 10717 Detroit Avenue in Cleveland.

“This auction is an eclectic grouping of subjects,” commented Serena Harragin of Gray’s Auctioneers. “However, it is well documented that the arts of Africa were a major influence on the art and music made in the United States and Europe in the early 20th century. So, we chose to follow the group of African sculptures and masks (lots 1-78) with a superb collection of jazz recordings” (lots 79-406).

Ms. Harragin continued, “The art of Africa was discovered by those wealthy travelers of the early 20th century who brought back African treasures. So, too, was it the wealthy elites of the jazz age whose embrace of jazz brought it to the masses. Thus, the auction ends with money, and some of the most desirable coins of the twentieth century.” (lots 407-529). Many of the coin lots are in multiples.
The auction provides a rare opportunity for collectors to break into the three main categories, or add to their existing collections, at very attractive price points. The bidding on many lots starts at under $100.

African artifacts with estimates of $80-$120, for example, include a Luba tribe (Democratic Republic of Congo) carved and painted wood moon mask with almond-shaped eyes, 17 ½ inches tall; a pair of Ivory Coast carved and painted wood Guro masks – a scorpion and an antelope, 25 ¼ inches tall; and a Senufo tribe (Ivory Coast) brass Kpelie initiation mask, 11 ½ inches tall. All are from the 20th century.

A handful of African lots have slightly higher estimates. These include a 20th century Salampasu tribe (Zaire) carved wood and copper ceremonial mask with a fiber ball coiffeur and plaited fiber and ball beard (est. $150-$250); and a pair of 20th century Nyamezi (Central Tanzania) carved wood figures – a male and a female, with inset beaded eyes – together on a metal stand, 68 inches tall (est. $100-$200).

Other lots with $100-$200 pre-sale estimates will include a 20th century Yoruba tribe (Nigeria) carved wood Ibeji female figure, 11 ¼ inches tall; a 20th century Benin brass figure of a seated female, 15 ½ inches tall; and a 20th century carved wood and metal Bamana Ntomo (Mali) mask, 18 inches in height.

The jazz recordings are from the single-owner collection of James Seidelle, who passed away in July last year. Mr. Seidelle was one of the inventors of the flight simulator, which teaches pilots how to fly. He was also a talented jazz drummer, a skillful photographer and a lifelong collector. Over 80 years he amassed a superb toy collection (sold by Gray’s in Dec. 2014), and a cherished jazz records collection. His musical instruments and a rare Slingerland drum set will be offered in Gray’s March 2019 auction.

Just a few highlights from Mr. Seidelle’s vast collection of jazz recordings will include a group of four Miles Davis vinyl LPs from various labels, being sold as one lot; a group of four Benny Goodman 10- inch shellac 78 album sets from Columbia Records; an autographed Woody Herman 10-inch shellac 78 album, signed by Herman, along with eleven Herman 10-inch shellac 78s; a Bunk Johnson red 10-inch vinyl LP from American Music Records; and a Billy Bauer vinyl LP from Norgran Records (all 20th c.).

All above lots (except the Commodore set) are est. $80-$120.

The 19th and 20th century American coins will be led by a group of four partial sets of Morgan silver half dollars from 1878-1921, including 70 coins of unknown mints (est. $3,000-$3,200); a group of 73 pre-1921 Morgan silver dollars of various mints, circulated and uncirculated (est. $1,800-$2,000); and a 1924 St. Gaudens gold coin in circulated condition (est. $1,500-$1,700).

5 Benefits of Stretching

The importance of stretching after working out can’t be stressed enough. It helps your body recover, and is helpful for strength and endurance improvements.

ORILLIA, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 22, 2019 / — One of the most overlooked aspects of working out and exercising is stretching. People often finish up their workout or finish their sport and that’s it. They don’t spend the extra time to stretch out afterwards, which can hinder their progression and ultimately lead to an increased risk of injury. Stretching is an essential part of any gym session or sport, like track and field, snowboarding, or kiteboarding.

Warm Up Before the Workout
It’s important to know when to stretch. Often people will stretch before the exercise, which is a mistake. Stretching is supposed to be done after your exercise, when your muscles are already warmed up and loose. Warming up before your workout should include 5 – 10 minutes of light cardio, perhaps some pushups / pullups, and light resistance band work. This helps to prep your muscles and “wake them up”, getting them ready for the following activity.

Stretch After Your Workout
After your workout is when it’s most important to stretch. At this point, your muscles should be tired, and have a build up lactic acid. Stretching helps to ease soreness in the muscle, decrease recovery time of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscular Soreness), and increase muscular improvements. A good rule of thumb to follow is that for every one hour of activity or exercise, you should stretch for 15 minutes.

5 Benefits of Stretching After Exercising
Increased Flexibility and Range of Motion
By stretching after a workout or activity you maximize the muscular gains and also help to increase the range of motion in the muscle.

Preventing Injuries
With an increased range of motion comes a decrease in the chance of injury occurring. In addition to that, stretching helps to build stabilizing muscles which help prevent injury as well.

Improving Sports Performance
Regular stretching allows your muscles to work more efficiently, so they will be able to handle lactic acid build up better, leading to better muscular endurance.

Eliminate Lactic Acid
Lactic acid builds up in your muscles during a workout and causes fatigue. By stretching you help to remove the lactic acid build up which means that you’ll recover faster from your workout.

Stress Relief
An underrated benefit of stretching is the relaxing nature of it. By stretching after your workout you can release a lot of built up tension which leads to greater stress relief.
