Why Eric Painter Suggests Journaling to Recover From Trauma

Eric Painter (50)

SUGAR LAND, TX, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eric Painter understands that trauma happens to everybody and that its effects can be very devastating. Like most people, he has experienced some trauma in his life but has found ways to manage these emotions. For example, the use of journals has helped him get his feelings in line and give him a better understanding of these difficulties.

The Powers of Journaling as Discussed by Eric Painter of Texas
Ever since he was young, Eric Painter has enjoyed writing and using the creative powers of language to explore himself and his emotions. This process includes writing detailed journal entries that discuss his day, go over the different elements of his life, and help to express his feelings in a powerful and meaningful way. And he has found that it can even help people suffering from trauma.

Why is writing such a great way to help manage negative or painful emotions? First, writing assists you in putting your thoughts down on paper and arrange them in a meaningful manner. Second, trauma often forces the mind to work hard and may confuse your ideas even further. And since most people have a conflicting soup of emotions and thoughts going through their heads, it's often hard to lock down how you feel.

And Eric Painter of Texas has found that many people can use a journal as a way of exploring these negative emotions and getting them out of their heads. For example, suppose you experienced survivor's guilt about an accident. In that case, he believes that journaling can help you identify why you feel that way and make it easier to understand that such feelings should be allowed to linger or worsen.

Just as importantly, journaling helps you to track the path of your thoughts and identify recurring issues. For example, trauma and PTSD often cause repetitive thought patterns that cycle back to these negative emotions. If you can spot these behavioral issues as they develop, you can trace them back to their source and make it easier to break such recurring adverse thoughts.

As a result, Eric Painter of Texas suggests that those struggling with trauma consider buying a journal. Even if your writing is rough or hard to read, you can powerfully express yourself and your emotions. And for many people, that kind of outlet is critical after trauma. Sometimes, just getting your feelings out and their details properly handled can help with these emotions.

That said, it is also essential to get real psychological or emotional help if your trauma-based emotions worsen. Remember – these struggles can be persistent and may cause slight depression and emotional struggles that linger for years to come. And while journaling can help to cut back on many of these issues or help you understand them better, real medical help may be necessary for some.

Shut Up and Listen to Yourself 2.0 By Dr. Joshua Estrin Now Available For Worldwide Release

Available on Audible and iTunes

The fact that I wrote this book during the pandemic proves that if you want to make the universe laugh, make a plan and listen to yourself.”

— Dr. Joshua Estrin

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Shut Up and Listen to Yourself 2.0 by Dr. Joshua Estrin is now available worldwide on Audible and iTunes. The book is the long anticipated sequel to Dr. Estrin’s popular Shut Up and Listen to Yourself!. Drawn from Dr. Estrin’s immensely popular Instagram videos, Shut Up and Listen to Yourself 2.0 fine tunes the concept first originated by Dr. Estrin in 2004. The book and author have earned an international following, for its insightful yet witty and humorous approach. The audio book is narrated by Dr. Estrin. The core concepts from Shut Up and Listen to Yourself!, remain; no one likes to be stifled, silenced, or feel as if they are merely a participant rather than the leading player in their life. No one likes to hear:

• “Shut up, that’s a stupid idea…”
• “Shut up, your opinions don’t matter…”
• “Shut up, you are not important…”
• “Shut up, you have no idea what you are talking about!”

Shut Up and Listen to Yourself 2.0 will allow you to take your life to the next level and stop listening to others and start listening to who counts, – yourself.

“A fair question that I have been asked is, “What makes Shut Up and Listen to Yourself 2.0 different, said Dr. Joshua Estrin. “While I still believe in the Shut Up Philosophy, I have had 20 more years to live and breathe it and, in the process, fine-tune it.

“The world has changed, and so in response, the lessons need to continue to be more relevant and revealing,” concluded Estrin. The fact that I wrote this book during the pandemic proves that if you want to make the universe laugh, make a plan and listen to yourself.”

About the Author

You can call him Joshua Estrin, Josh, or even Dr. Estrin because he’s the same short guy with no shortage of big ideas. The result of two loving yet dysfunctional parents who still managed to raise an over-achiever with a solid moral compass. Estrin has spent decades being over-educated, underestimated, and delighting in his ongoing and contentious relationship with the status quo.

Groomed to take over the family business. Josh realized construction was a dirty job so he turned his clinical eye on another mess – Digital Marketing and Social Media. Where he unapologetically crushes his competition but does so without leaving a wake of human carnage in his path. Josh’s advanced degree in Human Behavior and a Ph.D. in Statistical Analysis have allowed him to look into the face of humanity and ask the question, WTF?

Driven by a belief that kindness is a superpower and sarcasm a defense he always makes time to live his “Shut Up! philosophy while encouraging others to do the same.

With a dash of insight, a splash of glitter, and a heaping portion of love. Josh explores all things inspirational and motivational ensuring he breaks more than a few rules along the way. He has appeared on FOX News Channel, Huffington Post, and numerous media outlets across the world for his insightful, witty, humorous yet informative insights.

This Company Wants To Do To Mobile Games What Rihanna Did To The Beauty Industry

Girly Girls Games Girly Day icon

Girly Girls Games Girly Day 1

Girly Girls Games Girly Day 2

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Girly Girls Games is launching “Girly Day,” a new fashion mobile game that will be available on Google Play and App Store starting September 7th, 2021. The game is aimed at girls ages 13 and below and features dark-skinned girls that are not just the “brown” versions of a main character.

The company’s ambition is to create games in which every girl would be properly represented in terms of skin color, outfits and hair textures. Rihanna had a similar vision when she launched Fenty Beauty, with the largest range of makeup foundation shades starting with the deepest shades of brown. Fast forward, major beauty brands are now more inclusive in their product lines and Rihanna is a billionaire.

Unfortunately, mobile fashion games still have a long way to go in terms of diversity and inclusion. A recent survey of the top 25 princess games on Google Play shows that only 3 featured a black or brown girl on their game icon. None featured a girl of Asian descent. None were dark-skinned with tight curls.

Girly Girls Games aims to bridge that gap with their new game. Girly Day is a step forward towards more diversity, with over 20 natural hairstyles.It is an all-in-one nail spa, hair salon, makeup studio, and princess fashion game. Among other things, it gives players the opportunity to mix and match fashion pieces from around the world, including Indian Sarees, British Tea hats, African Jewelry, and more.

As Sandhya Nankani in her article “Mind the Diversity Gap in Kid’s Digital Media” noted, “Our kids have the right to interact with media that reflects the diversity that exists in our societies today.” As more companies like Girly Girls Games step up to the plate, this could soon be a reality.

About Girly Girls Games

The company was founded by a team of moms who decided to come together to create games that girls around the world would love to play. As they said: “Our games are creative outlets for girls to express themselves. We want them to have fun, dream big, and achieve their full potential. We believe that every girl should have the opportunity to dress up a doll that looks like her, with clothes she would love to wear herself.”

Velvet Chains Releases "Strangelove" and Leads a New Generation of American Hard Rock

promotional photo by Katarina Benzova


promo single

Full Album Release on September 24th 2021

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, August 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — From Las Vegas to the world. Velvet Chains was formed in the well-known American city in 2018 by experienced musicians from the American circuit.

The musical proposal bets on contagious rock sounds, a solid rhythmic section, and catchy guitar and voice melodies, the kind that stick in your head.

The music of the quartet is a mixture of musical styles and personalities through the cultural exchange: both Jerry Quinlan (voice and guitar) and Noelle Schertzer (drums) are American, Laurent Cassiano (guitar) is Brazilian and bassist Nils Goldschmidt, leader of the project, is Chilean.

Guided by what was best done in the grunge and hard rock of the 90s and 00s, the music of Velvet Chains has as reference groups such as Guns N 'Roses, Alice in Chains, and Pearl Jam, among many others from different Styles, whose elements are condensed to create a unique and characteristic sound.

The mix of styles and nationalities have always had an excellent record in the history of global music; as in The Strokes, Ill Niño, or even Slayer, who, including two Latinos in their initial line-up, managed to leave a mark in metal history.

All the artistic wealth of this mix of origins and influences will be condensed and presented to the public on September 24, when the group releases their debut album, Icarus.

The first single "Tattooed" featuring Richard Fortus (Guns N 'Roses) was released on July 30th. “He talks about how to deal with extremes in relationships and mask the pain that comes from that,” they explain. The song is accompanied by an impressive music video, produced and directed by renowned music video director Dean Karr (Marylin Manson, Iron Maiden, Velvet Revolver, etc.), who conceived the entire narrative of the video, which brings together very intense scenes, which are mixed with the impressive sound of Velvet Chains.

Listen to it on all digital platforms https://tinyurl.com/VC-Tattooed

The second single released today on all digital platforms is called “Strangelove”, written from a collaboration between Nils and Drew: “It's about a unique attraction/love that would never work because it borders on obsession. It will probably have a very positive radio reception, as it has a super catchy beat, and it has even become one of our favorite songs to play live,” concludes Nils.

Listen now: https://hypeddit.com/link/f3myax

Velvet Chains' debut album Icarus was co-written with multiplatinum songwriter Drew Lawrence. Recordings took place in early 2021 at different studios: drums were recorded at The Hideout and bass was recorded at The Tone Factory, both in Las Vegas, while guitars and vocals were recorded at The Killroom in Seattle. Sound engineering work was carried out by Greg Williamson, while Tristan Hardin did the mixing and mastering.

Icarus Track Listing:
1. Before We Shine
2. Burning City
3. Tattooed
4. Pass The Disease
5. Wasted
6. Strangelove
7. Flexing
8. Sex Slave
9. Teenage Stoner
10. Gone

Dungeons & Randomness Launches a New Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign for its Second Game

SACRAMENTO, CA, USA, August 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Dungeons & Randomness podcast will be launching (on August 28th) a new Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for its second tabletop roleplaying setting, “Adventurer’s Guide to Theria Volume II: Ta'lor”. Following the phenomenal success of their first crowdfunding campaign in 2019, the team are now seeking to fund a new tabletop roleplaying game that explores the fictional continent of Ta’lor. Dungeons & Randomness aims to raise $80,000 with its latest campaign and plans to deliver the new game by June 2022.

Telling the story of a never-ending conflict on the continent of Ta'lor, the game features a rich cast of heroes, villains, and adventurers. Players can pick their side in the war, as well as enjoy exploring a huge range of diverse plants, creatures, and terrifying beasts native to Ta’lor in the new game. The team plans to launch three editions of the “Adventurer’s Guide to Theria Volume II: Ta'lor” book, including two special editions that allow fans to pledge their allegiance to one side of the war.

The Kickstarter campaign includes an exciting collection of physical and digital rewards for backers. The physical rewards on offer include miniatures, pins, and quad-fold DM screens, as well as exclusive tapestries designed by Eloisa Ramirez. Fans who make a pledge also have the opportunity to have their own character or guild included in the book, as well as the chance to take part in an epic 4-6 hour roleplaying session with Dungeons & Randomness host and co-owner Jason Massey.

The campaign also includes a number of stretch goals if it surpasses the $80,000 target. These include additional book content, extra rewards, and financial raises for the team behind the project. The team have also set up social media stretch goals for when the Kickstarter campaign reaches certain amounts of shares on social media.

The Dungeons & Randomness podcast has built a loyal and dedicated fanbase over eight years of exploring storytelling through tabletop roleplaying games. A company spokesperson said: “We can barely contain our excitement as we offer you an expanded exploration of our world! Theria holds a special place in our hearts and the hearts of our listeners, and we adore the community we have helped foster all these years. What we want more than anything is to show others how awesome Theria is.”

The Bryan Beatty collection is a brand that will outlive this auction. Bryan used the breaks between lectures to search for toys and nostalgia. He collected like he taught – academically.””

— Ethan Miller

NEW HAMBURG, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. will hold back-to-back auctions the weekend of September 11th -12th. The Saturday, September 11th event will be a Toys & Nostalgia sale, featuring the Bryan Beatty collection. The Sunday, September 12th sale will be an Advertising & Historic Objects auction, featuring the Scott Vanner breweriana collection.

Both auctions are online-only and will have a start time of 9 am Eastern time. The Bryan Beatty collection of toys and communication-related memorabilia includes a well-rounded offering of cast iron and tin litho toys from the Victorian to the Atomic era. Mr. Beatty’s collection also includes many radios, microphones and typewriters, with examples spanning the 20th century.

“The Bryan Beatty collection is a brand that will outlive this auction,” predicted Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “His guiding principle can be summed up in these three words – condition, condition and condition. Unlike most university professors, Bryan used the breaks between lectures to search for toys and nostalgia. He collected like he taught – academically.”

Scott Vanner's collection of Canadian breweriana includes a large assortment of beer trays and assorted advertising from the 1890s to the 1940s. A generous offering of live steam models will also be sold, the highlight being a finely engineered 7 ¼ inch gauge steam locomotive. Other categories in the collection that will be sold include advertising signs, bicycles and comic books.

The items in Mr. Vanner’s collection are “just the way collectors like them,” Mr. Miller said – “one hundred percent fresh to the market.” The 7 ¼ inch gauge steam locomotive could easily end up being the top lot of the two days, as it carries a stout pre-sale estimate of $15,000-$20,000 (all prices quoted in this report are in Canadian dollars). It previously sold at Christie’s in 1985.

The steam locomotive is a well presented 7 ¼ inch gauge model of the Great Western Railway 4-6-0 locomotive and tender No. 1011 ("County of Chester"). It was rebuilt and reboilered by F. West and Lee Green and comes with a brazed superheated copper boiler with fittings, including water and pressure gauges, safety, blower, twin injector, whistle, clack and blowdown valves.

Two Canadian steam engine models from very different eras carry identical estimates of $2,000-$3,000. One is a model of a ‘Southern’ heavy-duty rocking valve mill engine, with continuous rope belts, designed and built by H.A. Sharrar in 1971. It was a “Best Steam Display” winner at the Milton steam show. The other is a highly detailed scale model of the steam engine that ran machinery for the Dominion Organ & Piano Co. (Bowman, Ont.), built by R. Fishleigh in 1890.

Other noteworthy Day 2 offerings include a Worth and Martin (Toronto) one-cent bull’s head perfume dispenser (“Take the bull by the horns!”), made in 1902, solid brass with a glass mirror and able to accept large Canadian cents (estimate: $6,000-$9,000); and a Wayne Model 60 American made Chevrolet gas pump dating to the 1940s, 92 inches tall and professionally restored to Chevrolet, including paint and reproduction globe lenses (estimate: $6,000-$9,000).

A Wurlitzer Model 1015 jukebox, made in America in 1946, has an estimate of $6,000-$8,000. The Model 1015 is one of the most iconic jukeboxes ever made. This one is a fine, functioning example and comes with 24 period rock ‘n’ roll records. Also, an 1869 French style Boneshaker bicycle with a painted iron frame, wood rims and professionally restored wheels, is expected to speed away for $3,000-$3,500. The rear brake is activated by twisting the handlebars forward.

A Molson’s Beer clock, made for the French-Canadian market in the 1930s, porcelain with a screened metal clock dial marked “Made in Germany”, should bring $4,000-$6,000. Very few porcelain advertising signs were appointed with high quality mechanical clocks. Also, a Black Cat Shoe Polish lithographed tin clock, made in Canada in the early 20th century, marked “MacDonald Mfg. Co. Limited, Toronto”, non-functioning, has an estimate of $2,000-$3,000.

An English 1913 J. Smith & Sons tower clock having a cast iron frame with steel components, rescued and restored after the post office building it served in the town of Bowmanville from 1912-1965 was torn down, should achieve $3,000-$5,000. Also from England, a 1950s-era Austin Junior J-40 pedal car, restored, featuring a functioning horn and headlights, is estimated to bring $2,000-$3,000. Nearly 32,000 of the J-40 pedal cars were produced from 1950 to 1971.

A Miller High Life Beer two-sided porcelain hanging sign, made in the 1930s and originally designed to accommodate bands of neon surrounding the perimeter, 35 ½ inches by 46 inches, is expected to reach $3,000-$5,000; while a circa 1920s mechanical commercial cigar humidor showcase, made in America of quarter sawn oak with etched plate glass panels and nickel-plated trim, tagged “The Loudon Cigar Case” with various patent dates, should realize $3,500-$6,000.

Back to Day 1. One item certain to be a hit with bidders (but not part of the Beatty collection) is a Hillerich & Bradsby Louisville Slugger baseball bat signed in blue sharpie marker by Hall of Fame legend Mickey Mantle (estimate: $2,000-$2,500). Included is an official 1992 MLB photo of Mantle and a 2001 letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA that’s signed by James J. Spence, Jr.

From the Beatty collection, a 1950s-era American RCA Type 77 DX ribbon microphone made from brushed steel and chrome, in the rare and iconic “pill” design, mounted to a contemporary powder coated base, should command $2,000-$3,000. Also, a circa 1940s/‘50s RCA Type 91B microphone and an MI4092 desk stand, having a powder coated and brushed chrome base and mounted to a rare, correct base, 9 inches tall (mike on stand) has an estimate of $800-$1,200.

Internet bidding for the 875-lot auctions will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, as well as the Miller & Miller website: www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com. Bidders can tune in to the live webcast on both days to watch lots close in real time. Phone and absentee bids will be accepted.

Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. has two more auctions lined up for fall: a Firearms, Sporting & Canadiana auction on October 9th (deadline to consign: Sept. 10); and a Watches & Jewels auction on November 20th (deadline to consign: Oct. 15). Both auctions will be online-only.

Reality Faucet app lets users play in physically realistic augmented reality using LiDAR on iPhone Pros and iPad Pros

WIth insanely realistic physics, augmented reality finally delivers on its promise. Every moment, your gut tells you it's real. It's magic.”

— Dr. David Levitt, Pantomime co-founder and CEO

SEBASTOPOL, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pantomime Corporation has today introduced Reality Faucet, the first augmented reality app with realistic physics, letting various virtual objects dynamically interact with a user’s real environment. The app is available free today in the App Store, with free and paid In-App Purchases.

Reality Faucet lets users interact with a wide range of physically realistic animated 3D objects. LiDAR depth scanning technology built into recent iPhone Pro and iPad Pro models lets the app see the precise contours of rooms, furniture, objects and real environments, so virtual objects seamlessly inhabit them — realistically colliding, sliding, bouncing, rolling across surfaces and disappearing behind real objects.

Reality Faucet introduces physics so real, each experience uniquely responds to both the user's behavior and the specific contents of the room or space they are in, as shown in video.

Today’s release includes a variety of sports balls, cardboard boxes, wooden planks and bats, water droplets, dominos and bowling balls, that all interact realistically with the user’s space and with each other. The powerful simulation even lets users conduct experiments and build things.

As with previous Augmented Reality experiences, a Reality Faucet user sees a computer-augmented 3D scene through their device using its rear camera and front screen. But until now, AR experiences have focused on relatively static scenes, such as positioning virtual furniture in a user’s home. In such apps, a user cannot throw or knock over objects if he tries.

Reality Faucet introduces Kinetic Augmented Reality™, focused on dynamic scenes — balls that roll and bounce, liquids that flow, stacks of objects that users can build and knock over, and much more.

Realistic physics includes friction, momentum, mass, energy, realistic collisions with corresponding 3D sounds, gravity, and other elements typically absent in the previous generation of AR.

Objects as diverse as rubbery rolling balls, slippery droplets, hefty bowling balls, wooden planks, cardboard boxes, baseball bats and falling dominos collide realistically with one another and disappear behind real objects — always tracking the precise contours of the user’s space and the objects in it. Users can hold virtual objects and use them as tools in the scene.


3D Graphics and Spatial Sound
Along with physics, Reality Faucet employs cutting edge mobile 3D graphics and sound, harnessing Apple’s multiple CPU and graphics cores in real time.

The app quickly picks up the lighting, colors, and textures of the real room. Users see the room reflected in the glass faucet and in highlights on every shiny object. A user holding a big virtual soap bubble can see an entire room in it.

Users see and hear objects collide with one another and bounce off the floor with acutely directional spatial sound, with no need for a headset.

Advanced Silicon Enables New Realism
On Apple’s 2021 iPad Pro models containing the new M1 chip, Reality Faucet objects cast realistic animated shadows — on real objects, furniture, the floor, and other virtual objects.

Amid hundreds of synthetic objects, reflections, physics, shadows and spatial sound, the app draws 60 frames each second for seamless photorealistic real-time animation.

Patented Technology
Reality Faucet’s unique experiences use device presence technology patented by Pantomime for representing the shapes of mobile devices and tools attached to them in augmented reality.

Ordinarily a user’s point of view in augmented reality is passive — when a user walks up to a virtual object, he and his device can pass right through it. With Pantomime, the user can realistically knock it over or scoop it up, moving and turning virtual objects precisely with the 3D tools he’s carrying.

Pantomime’s core technology combined with LiDAR can be applied in realistic games, puzzles, competitive challenges, physics education, simulation, mechanical design, testing and training, and much more. Pantomime Corporation will work with partners, branded content and technology licensees to create new In-App Purchases and new apps. In today’s release, the focus is on free play: letting users build things and enjoy augmented reality magic.

Pantomime Corporation was founded in 2014 by CEO Dr. David Levitt, an alumnus of the team at VPL Research that invented virtual reality, and Chief Architect Don Hopkins, of the team that created The Sims. Pantomime won the Launch Silicon Valley World Cup and was granted its first augmented reality patent that year. Pantomime’s previous physically realistic apps include Pantomime Bug Farm and Creatures AR. Levitt earned his doctorate at MIT and his B.S. at Yale. He was awarded a 2019 Virtual World Society Nextant Prize and is on the Immersive Hollywood Board of Advisors.
