Community tea party at the Scientology Information Center

The Scientology Info Center hosts fun tea party providing information that may come in handy for a fresh start in 2020.

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 26, 2019 / — Helping people to make the New Year bright, Jill Kirsch, L.A.’s “Color Guru” will be sharing dress-for-success tips on Saturday, January 18th 2020 at a tea party at the Scientology Information Center in downtown Clearwater.

The event will be from 3-5pm and refreshments will be served. There is no cost to attend and both men and women are welcome. Recommended age of attendees is fourteen and above.

“Many people have a New Year’s resolution to get a fresh start,” said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center. “Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote ‘Never regret yesterday. Life is in you today and you make your own tomorrow.’ A new year is a great reason to start again and in addition to the tools provided through Scientology, we wanted to share some other information that may come in handy.”

Ms. Kirsch has been named Best Color Consultant in the “Best of LA” issue of Los Angeles magazine. Jill is frequently called upon by Red Carpet celebs, Grammy-winning musicians and titans of business for color coaching. In addition, Jill can be seen in the award winning documentary “Gray Is the New Blonde.”

“Have you ever bought clothes with the latest ‘color of the season’ and wondered why it does nothing for you, or at worst, why it makes you look ill? Well there’s a simple reason, and it has to do with the color of your hair and the shade of color that’s right for you,” said Ms. Kirsch, who will share her knowledge over tea and scones.

“The Information Center is open to anyone curious about Scientology,” said Ms. Skjelset, “but the Center also serves as a venue which showcases artistic performances, meetings, social gatherings and educational programs such as this one.

Join Agustina on an adventure to Veracruz

Join Agustina on her adventures in Mexico – Vamos a Veracruz

Children’s Book Author Alice Perez

Author Alice Perez signs books at Agustina Reveal Party

Author Alice Perez signs books at Barnes & Noble – Houston River Oaks Location

Book delivers strong message to all children about diversity. Vamos a Veracruz teaches children about a new language, culture, and travel experience!

When I received the news that Vamos a Veracruz sold out at Target I was in complete disbelief!”

— Alice Perez, Author, Vamos A Veracruz

HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, December 21, 2019 / — Awakening the curiously for different culture(s), travel, and experience(s), Vamos a Veracruz, a children’s book and work taking place in Mexico, has flown off the shelves selling out in late October at nationwide Target Online.

Author Alice Perez,, strives to provide diversity among children’s literature as well as introduce children to different cultural backgrounds. Perez is a Texas native, born and raised in Houston. She has always had a passion for storytelling and writing. Perez wrote her first story at the early age of ten for a fourth grade class project. When the assignment was given, Perez was thrilled because she had an opportunity to express her love for writing. Little did she know that this would be the beginning of her own story.

“When I received the news that Vamos a Veracruz sold out at Target I was in complete disbelief! Oddly enough it brought back a memory. All I could think about was a younger me, when I’d hoped and dreamed of becoming an author or a screenwriter some day. I am so grateful to have the amazing support that I have,” says Perez.

As for the future of the "Vamos/Let’s Go To" series, I plan on introducing more places, characters, and interesting stories for my young readers to enjoy. For myself as an author, I will continue to develop my skills as a writer to become a more well-rounded and reliable source of different cultures in order to expand the cultural mindset of my audience.

Creating the work, Perez wanted to honor her late grandmother. She shared an incredibly close bond with her growing up and wanted to keep her memory alive. The characters are all named after family members and Veracruz city is where her family origin is from. Vamos a Veracruz took about a year to complete. "I re-wrote the manuscript twice before publishing it in March of 2019," says Perez.

Alice Perez’s goal is to take children to as many cities around the world and teach them culture awareness through her writing. She strives to have diverse children’s literature in classrooms everywhere one day.

Vamos a Veracruz is available for purchase with all major retailers. Please be sure to check out for more details.

Alaska Gold Rush gold ingot and painting of miners on mules bring top dollars at Holabird's Holiday Treasures Auction

Beautiful 4.51 troy ounce gold nugget from the Atlin mining district, just east of Skagway in Yukon, Alaska, 2 ½ inches by 1 ½ inch ($10,845).

Oil on board painting of two miners on mules loaded with various items, titled Panhandlers, signed by Texas artist William Forrest Martin, nicely framed ($8,540).

Vintage Navajo necklace and earrings set, featuring a 32-inch-long Naja pendant with six stones (possibly Royston turquoise) with silver beads, and matching clip-on earrings, ($1,562).

Stock certificate for Ediphone Service, Inc. (N.J.), issued to Thomas Edison (and his brother Charles), for one share, dated July 16, 1928, with Edison’s signature on the reverse ($1,000).

Original 1909 poster mounted on linen promoting “Pawnee Bill’s Great Far East combined with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West”, 30 inches by 40 inches, framed ($4,375).

The auction was packed with a staggering 4,379 lots in a wide array of collecting categories. It was held December 5-9, online and at the gallery in Reno, Nev.

RENO, NV, UNITED STATES, December 20, 2019 / — A beautiful 4.51 troy ounce Alaska Gold Rush gold nugget from the Atlin mining district, located just east of Skagway in Yukon, Alaska climbed to $10,845, and an oil on board painting of two miners on mules loaded with various items, titled Panhandlers, signed by Texas artist William Forrest Martin, nicely framed, realized $8,540 at Holabird Western Americana Collections’ massive, five day Holiday Treasures Auction held December 5th through the 9th.
The auction was packed with a staggering 4,379 lots in a wide array of collecting categories – including Western Americana, railroadiana, gold, minerals, music memorabilia, mining, art, Native Americana, militaria, aviation, postal history, coins, tokens and more – online and live in the gallery at 3555 Airway Drive (Suite #308) in Reno. The painting and gold nugget were the two lop lots in a sale that grossed $270,272. Over 5,000 registered bidders participated online.
Day 1, December 5th, was the sale’s busiest day, in terms of the sheer number of categories. These included art, militaria, Native Americana, firearms and weapons, general Americana, autographs, antiquarian books, bottles, clothing, comic books, cowboy collectibles, ephemera, entertainment industry, furnishings, 3D items, gaming, jewelry, maps, music and photography.
Also offered on Day 1 were political memorabilia, postcards, saloon/beer/tobacco, spoons, tools, toys, Wells Fargo/Express, World’s Fair/Expositions, coins and tokens. A top achiever was the original 1909 poster mounted on linen promoting “Pawnee Bill’s Great Far East combined with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West” ($4,375). The 30 inch by 40 inch framed poster advertised the brief partnership between Gordon William Lillie (aka “Pawnee Bill”) and the legendary Buffalo Bill.
A Parsons & Co. Assayers (Colorado) gold ingot, one of four known examples, marked “1860” and “Twenty Dolls”, changed hands for $3,615. It most certainly would have brought more if it could be proved the ingot was real, but it can’t because there is no provenance for that one or the other three either. Still, two of the four are in museums (one is in the Smithsonian). Not much is known or documented regarding Mr. Parsons, who operated out of a remote mine in Colorado.
A group of 40 ancient Chinese coins, dating to hundreds of years BC, gaveled for $3,500. These included a “Nose” or “Ghost-head” bronze imitation of cowrie shell, used from 700-200 BC throughout central and eastern ancient China. Eleven were unattributed. Also, a vintage, one-of-a-kind Navajo necklace and earrings set, featuring a 32-inch-long Naja pendant with six stones (possibly Royston turquoise) with silver beads, and matching clip-on earrings, rose to $1,562.

Two lots posted identical selling prices of $1,000. One was a stock certificate for Ediphone Service, Inc. (N.J.), issued to Thomas Edison (and his brother Charles), for one share, dated July 16, 1928, cancelled, with Thomas Edison’s bold signature on the reverse. The other was a large group of DC Comics, featuring characters such as Karate Kid, Justice League, Flash, Green Lantern, Batman and Ghosts. The comics were not heavily researched and none were graded.
Day 2, Friday, December 6th, featured stocks and bonds (mining stocks, petroliana stocks and other stocks), railroadiana, transportation, minerals and mining – 737 lots in all. The Yukon / Skagway gold nugget sold on Day 2. Also sold was a 1-share free trading stock certificate from 1856 for the Minnesota Mining Co., the first mine in Ontanogan County, Mich. The certificate, signed by Joseph Henry de Palma (Pres.) and James D. Mansfield (Treas.), finished at $4,250.
Day 3, Saturday, December 7th, contained 957 lots of art, militaria, Americana, antiquarian books, bottles, clothing, cowboy, ephemera, fire, entertainment industry, fraternal organizations, furnishings and 3D items, gaming, maps, photography, political, postcards, saloon/beer/tobacco, signs, spoons, tools, toys, Wells Fargo/Express and World’s Fair and Expositions and foreign.

Brooke Horan Williams on the Therapeutic Benefits of Acting

Brooke Horan Williams reveals how acting can help lead to a healthier state of mind.

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, December 19, 2019 / — Brooke Horan Williams understands that not everyone will see things from her point of view, or even benefit from her advice in the same way that she has. However, she wants to share her experience for those who are able to take it to heart. Brooke Horan Williams wants to share with everyone she can the therapeutic benefits of acting.

People come from all walks of life, from countless different situations, and everyone deals with their immediate surroundings and stimuli in varying ways. While sharing one’s feelings, frustrations and emotions may come easily to some, others struggle to express themselves in a meaningful way on a daily basis. Brooke Horan Williams was one such person who fell into this second camp.

After discovering the joy of acting, Brooke Horan Williams realized that by understanding and reenacting the emotions of the characters on the written page, she was able to begin working through her own similar feelings that she was experiencing in her day to day life. Her suppressed anger, sadness, joy, and a multitude of other emotions were finally able to be freed through the magic of committing to a script.

It may seem counter-intuitive, Brooke Horan Williams admits: acting out someone else’s words and feelings may appear to some as being extremely non-helpful when it comes to dealing with actual emotions, or in a worst-case scenario, could be seen as hiding behind a mask and actually harming your ability to express your true self.

Brooke Horan Williams assures us that this line of thinking couldn’t be further from the truth: for someone who has struggled a large portion of their life with properly coming to terms with their feelings, being able to work through and understand your character’s intentions can be extremely beneficial in helping you understand your own.

This isn’t just one person’s point of view: there is a professionally recognized practice known as drama therapy that utilizes this school of thought. Drama therapy is defined as “the use of theatre techniques to facilitate personal growth and promote mental health”, according to Wikipedia.

Drama therapy is specifically used to help people work through specific problems—whether it be trying to discover something about one’s self, making a breakthrough about a personality disorder, or any other number of psychological problems. This isn’t exactly the same thing Brooke Horan Williams is referring to, but it proves that the basis for the logic behind it is sound.

Brooke Horan Williams hopes that if you’re going through the same struggles she had, you’ll give acting a shot. It may help more than you think!

Rhythm Games with Justin Williams Medical Laser

Exploring the musical rhythm-based genre of video games with Justin Williams Medical Laser.

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, December 19, 2019 / — Rhythm games are a mainstay in arcades and on home consoles all over the world. Rhythm games on their most basic level usually consist of hitting the right button at the right time, as denoted by however the game displays “notes”. Controllers for these games can be as simple as color-coded buttons or as complex as mock instruments such as maracas, drums, or guitars. Justin Williams Medical Laser points out the surprising origins of the rhythm game genre that most everyone will recognize: the classic color/tone matching game, Simon.

Justin Williams Medical Laser draws attention to the fact that while Simon lacks some major elements often seen in most rhythm games—most glaringly, there’s no actual “rhythm” involved—it does use a “call and response” mechanic which is seen in future games, such as the game commonly referred to as the first “music” game: Parrapa the Rapper for the original PlayStation (a favorite of Justin Williams Medical Laser). Parrapa the Rapper featured the titular Parappa, a rapping dog. The gameplay consisted of “call and response” with four color-coded buttons, much like Simon, with the key differences being an original soundtrack created for the game, and the element of proper timing being an important aspect of performing well.

While the game was released in America, the musical rhythm genre began with far more popularity in Japanese arcades. Konami was the main driving force behind this popularity due to the production of several rhythm games. Their first go at it was a huge success: Beatmania, released in Japanese arcades in December of 1997, requires players to press the buttons on the arcade cabinet in time with the music, but also introduces a rubber “vinyl” disc, used to simulate DJing.

Justin Williams Medical Laser explains that while Konami continued to release new rhythm games over the course of the following years, and many of them were successes such as GuitarFreaks and DrumMania, they never found widespread global success due to not being heavily marketed outside of Japan. Justin Williams Medical Laser says if you knew where to look, you could find any of these cabinets in certain American arcades, but they were far from ubiquitous.

One of the most popular rhythm games in America for quite some time, and one that Justin Williams Medical Laser spent many hours playing, was the Dance Dance Revolution series. First released in 1998 by Konami, the game consists of a “dance pad” with four pressure-sensitive floor plates pointing up, down, left, and right, which the player must step on in time with the music.

Justin Williams Medical Laser indicates that rhythm games saw its golden age in the west with the advent of the Guitar Hero series. Produced by Harmonix, Guitar Hero took inspiration from the Japanese GuitarFreaks series but used American rock music instead of Japanese pop, while increasing the number of buttons from three to five. The game series was a massive hit and cultural phenomenon, even being parodied on shows like South Park.

The rhythm game bubble seems to have burst, with its popularity having waned significantly since 2009 when it was arguably at its peak. There’s still no shortage of musical games out there, such as Rock Band, the spiritual successor to the Guitar Hero series, and Just Dance, which utilizes mobile phones and/or motion tracking cameras to allow the player to perform dance routines. Justin Williams Medical Laser is hoping for another rhythm genre renaissance in the coming years.

Taking Care of Your Pet Skunk with Thomas Harford Columbia

COLUMBIA, NY, UNITED STATES, December 19, 2019 / — Thomas Harford Columbia is passionate about making sure that those who watch after exotic pets are using the proper methods to care for them in a safe and loving manner. To that end, he’s put together a short guide on what it means to take care of a domesticated skunk.

It may seem outlandish to some—after all, skunks aren’t exactly a common pet choice for at least one very obvious reason—but skunks are actually a shockingly popular pet. This is especially true in the UK, where it is currently 100% legal to keep a skunk as a pet without the need to apply for a license. Their surprising popularity as a pet is in spite of the fact that removal of a skunk’s scent glands is considered an immoral practice in the UK, meaning the risk of being sprayed by a spooked skunk is very real!

The legality of owning a skunk

As mentioned earlier, if you live in the UK, you’re free and clear to take care of a skunk. However, Thomas Harford Columbia urges Americans to take a look at their local state laws to make sure you won’t be breaking the law if you decide to welcome a skunk into your home as a new part of the family.

Thomas Harford Columbia informs us that skunks are fully illegal in 32 of the 50 states. Even if you’re in one of the outlying states that will allow a skunk as a pet, there are many restrictions depending on where you reside. Most states require a permit, while some impose a restriction on how many you’re able to have. In some states, such as Michigan, you’ll need to build an outside cage for your new furry friend.

Taking care of your skunk

Thomas Harford Columbia warns us that taking care of a skunk is a considerably larger challenge than other housepets. Skunks’ appetites are no joke: they’ll eat just about anything, and it’s tough to tell when to stop feeding them, as they tend to have very large appetites. Obesity in pet skunks is a very common problem, Thomas Harford Columbia advises.

As stated earlier, skunks are extremely difficult to take care of compared to other pets. The reasons for this are many, besides the obvious challenges one would face when dealing with a skunk. Thomas Harford Columbia explains that although there are numerous domesticated skunk organizations dedicated to helping people take care of their skunks, they often offer conflicting information, and it can be hard to know what advice to follow.

Skunks are intelligent creatures, and with intelligence comes emotion. It’s entirely possible your skunk will sometimes be in a bad mood and resort to biting and scratching. The constant upkeep and work that goes into taking care of a skunk may be too much for someone to handle, warns Thomas Harford Columbia. If you give if your best and truly believe you can’t continue to care for the skunk you’ve adopted, there are relocation options available if you know where to look. Thomas Harford Columbia suggests looking for a local skunk shelter who can help you ensure your pet skunk finds a new, loving home.

As with any domesticated animal, they will be unfit for life in the wild after spending so long away from it. Thomas Harford Columbia implores any skunk owners who have reached the end of their rope to not under any circumstances release the skunk into the wild.

It may seem strange, but caring for a skunk can be a beautiful, rewarding experience if you’re willing to put in the time and care as you would for any other living being. If you’ve decided to make the leap and care for a skunk, Thomas Harford Columbia wishes you the best of luck!
