  • NEW BOOK OFFERS A UNIQUELY MODERN TAKE ON THE ESPIONAGE THRILLER GENRE

    The Danger Within

    E.L. Pini

    THE DANGER WITHIN by E.L. Pini

    A suspenseful book, depicting real characters and exciting and unexpected twists in the plot. The characters are complex and real.”
    — Amazon reviewer Rebecca S.
    UNITED STATES, January 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Both in character design and plot, the books of E.L. Pini exhibit a uniquely modern take on the genre of terror and espionage thriller novels. Yet at the same time, they appeal to fans of some of the genre’s iconic names like Tom Clancy, Daniel Silva, Brad Thor, Nelson DeMille, Terry Hayes and David Morrell.

    In his book A DANGER WITHIN, Pini’s protagonist Mossad Agent Avner Ehrlich is a character developed from the author’s own experience after completing three years of military service in an Israel Defense Forces special unit.

    In fact, before completing a description of a fight or physical altercation for Ehrlich, Pini will often get a group of ex-combat fighter friends together to play out the scene from beginning to end and use what he learns to enhance and fine-tune it. This is why many readers attest that the fast-paced, gripping depictions often feel as if they are watching a movie rather than reading a book.

    Ehrlich is a serial rulebreaker, but whenever the need for a dangerous top-secret operation arises, he is the Israeli Mossad’s first pick. So what happens when the hunter becomes the hunted, and Ehrlich finds himself an enemy target?

    In A DANGER WITHIN, Ehrlich stands before the most cunning enemy he has ever faced – an enemy with innovative and sophisticated methods that conceal the danger within.

    Imad Akbariyah, a rising star in Al-Qaeda’s chain of command, recruits a fellow Palestinian doctor to perform surgeries on terrorist Shahids and implant their bodies with plastic explosives that allow them to move freely through any security check or device – effectively creating grave danger through these “human ticking bombs.” Imad remembers when his father was killed in front of his eyes by an Israeli commando officer and dreams of the day he will get his revenge on the man responsible – who he learns was Ehrlich.

    As the violent chases intensify, a blood-soaked war is only a matter of time. The personal encounter between the two rivals is inevitable – and Ehrlich is fighting not only to prevent the killing of innocent lives, but to save his own.

    The story is a nail-biter, and the characters become more complex as each chapter unfolds.

    Amazon reviewer Rebecca S., an enthusiastic reader of Daniel Silva, Lee Child and Brad Thor, calls Pini’s work “a suspenseful book, depicting real characters and exciting and unexpected twists in the plot. The characters are complex and real.”

    After completing three years of military service in an Israel Defense Forces special unit, E.L. PINI went to London, where he studied script writing and took on various jobs employing his unique skill set – bodyguard, bouncer, photographer, and even getaway driver (for which he has yet to suffer consequences). He later found some success as a screenwriter for advertisements and documentaries. These days, Pini likes to spend his free time cooking, listening to operas and rock-crawling with his modified Jeep.

  • The Need to Promote World Peace - Dr. Sam Swapn's Book on the Global Pandemic is Now Available Worldwide

    World War III Corona Book Cover

    NEWARK, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Dr. Sam Swapn, a prolific coach, entrepreneur, and author, has released his book 'World War III Corona' to discuss the truths and fiction about the global pandemic. The book is now available on Amazon and other major online book retailers.

    The devastating impact of the global pandemic is tantamount to the wars and calamities that furiously struck humanity during the course of our history. The COVID-19 pandemic has infected millions and has brought global economic activity to a near-standstill. It is estimated that the impact of COVID-19 is $ 10 Trillion, the largest economic shock the world has experienced in decades.

    The book, World War III Corona, delves deep into the highly transmissible virus' economic, social, and geopolitical ramifications. Although its survivability varies greatly across settings and ages; on average, it kills almost 1 out of every 100 infected people. With the world coming to a complete standstill due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the author reflects a completely different perspective of the pandemic situation.

    World War III Corona explains that current biowarfare has changed the world forever. However, savagery and wars can be dealt with through peaceful means. According to the author, Dr. Sam Swapn, the idea of destroying the world is wicked, and that the world nations need to understand the significance of promoting world peace. We need hope, truth, courage, and faith that allows the nations to cooperate and gain wisdom to promote peace and love among humanity. The later part of the book emphasizes that world countries control and promote world peace. This implies the states to mutually cooperate and work out nonviolent efforts to save human lives. Moreover, it empowers nations to think outside the box to maintain human goodness—altruism, compassion, peace, equality, and justice in this world.

    As the readers begin to read the book, they will find the powerful and motivating style of writing that strikes a reader's mind with powerful questions concerning the virus and its impact. For instance, people want to know how this virus became so widespread and caused tragic deaths. In addition, the pandemic led to severe financial crises as many economies are structurally facing loss. Communities are alarmed about what will happen in the future, how this virus will vanish, and how people can fully return to their normal lives.

    The book states that this is World War 3 based on biowarfare, but the attacker is invisible. John Hopkin's research studies say that the world communities should develop a global peace mission; the states should initiate essential peace-building measures that will help the nations understand what direction they are heading to and how they can plan and calculate possible risks ahead. We need a new global system that talks about consumer market and investment capacity, reduce the defense budget, and scales down military warheads. Moreover, individuals and communities should plan out how to win the game rather than become victims of the virus and suffer irreplaceable losses.

    The purpose of writing this book is to help humanity with social justice and peace. Dr. Sam believes that countries should spend less on wars and more on creating equality, educating people, and creating happiness. Going back to the way we were before COVID-19 is not an option for the states now. So, we need to accept the challenge and take the opportunity to start thinking about a new normal. We need to create a safe, secure, and peaceful global haven for our future generations.

  • Persian Wars, Four Mesmerizing Tales of Persians Finding Their Way in the World - Available on Bookstores Now

    Persian Wars Vol 1 Book Cover

    The four stories by Bahman Akhavan illustrate universal themes of romance, relations with family, conflicts risen through politics, love, and families.

    ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, January 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Bahman Akhavan, an ingenious author of Persian descent, has released the first volume of his Persian Wars anthology titled 'Home and Away'. The book is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online book stores worldwide.

    Deeply rooted in Persian literature, history, and tradition, the book highlights the essence of reality and the truth of life. Reading the book will let you know that Persians are complex people with an ancient history and rich culture. They have experienced social and psychological transitions. Being resilient and extremely adaptive, Persian families have emigrated to all parts of the world to adapt, assimilate, and reinvent themselves. The stories demonstrate how well they blend within any society and have inherited the customs and lifestyles of the community where they live. Furthermore, the author states how a catalyst for this transformative realization has positively or negatively impacted their behavior, attitude, and relationships.

    The Persian Wars opens a gateway to an ancient Persian culture, the lives of Iranian individuals and families from different backgrounds and settings, struggling with their conflicts, challenges, crises, relationships, and identities. The stories elucidate the impact of cultural diversity and liberalism on Persian families that adversely affected social behavior and traditional family values.

    Akhavan hopes to inspire readers to understand the intricacies of life and enable them to overcome their daily struggles. The book is a must-read for the Persian community, other minorities living outside of Iran, and anybody curious about or interested in other cultures. Readers will find these heart-touching stories that captivate our hearts and stay there forever!

    The stories elucidate how Iranians tried to keep a good relationship with other people. They have faced cataclysmic wars, natural disasters, and now economic sanctions! Their history has been a roller coaster through glories and calamities. Yet, they have survived, adapted, and incorporated strife into their culture that has re-blossomed over and over in the course of a millennium!

    Stylistically, this book uses many metaphors and references that could be applied universally, as well as leitmotifs that create a unifying thread! It is a good motivational book that hands you the tools you need to help you succeed. This is what categorizes it as a great life-changing book.

    About the Author
    Bahman Akhavan is a Persian artist and writer who has lived in the USA for over 50 years. The writer believes in eliminating the differences between cultures. The author states that to do this, we must remove ourselves from the prejudices that plague us, opening our minds to new opportunities and tolerance of differences that arise from global cultures.

  • Newly revealed eyewitness account tells of top American bank’s misfortune in Russia

    Russia

    New Release: "Into Russia's Cauldron"

    "Into Russia’s Cauldron" contains a warning from the past that resonates for today’s U.S.-Russia relationship

    A cautionary tale about corporate naiveté in a little-understood land”
    — John Tefft, former US ambassador to Russia
    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA, January 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The newly released book, "Into Russia’s Cauldron," by Steven Fisher, tells the dramatic story of an individual and America’s leading financial institution fighting the inevitable in Russia, a chronicle grippingly brought to life in the never-seen-before century-old journal of Dartmouth College graduate, Leighton Rogers. In 1916, the National City Bank of New York, the precursor of today’s Citibank, sent Rogers to Russia to join a mission to achieve American commercial preeminence–a vision set forth by Frank Vanderlip, the president of National City Bank, who enthusiastically declared, “Russia’s need for capital is like Sahara’s thirst for water.” National City Bank instead fell into a Russian revolutionary maelstrom. Leighton Rogers wrote down everything he saw and experienced. His journal contains an eloquent, fresh and riveting account of that tumultuous time and recounts the devastating outcome of a singularly failed mission.

    Meticulously researched, "Into Russia’s Cauldron" addresses long-standing questions about Russia’s role on the world stage and conveys geopolitical lessons Leighton Rogers and his National City Bank colleagues learned one century ago that are compellingly relevant today.

    Scrimmaging Writing Barriers and Inspiring Young Authors With Tanisha Tiwari

    ‘When a child is raped, not only the physiology but the emotion is raped’. ”
    — Tanisha Tiwari
    DELHI, DELHI, INDIA, December 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- ‘Writing is unrestrictive and has no rules’ is what Tanisha Tiwari believes. For her, writing is not just about the friction between the pages and the pen, it’s the language that binds souls. She believes the world can change, a bit at a time, if it involves writers and readers. Finding writing to be the true potential, she holds the title of author at the age of 23.

    Whether it’s a part of her love for English lectures or making it to the inter-school writing challenges, she never gave up on her dream of being a writer. At times, people told she was not good enough but all she stood for was ‘her writing’.

    The journey of being a published author is not easy, it’s draining, it’s exhausting, it’s the lack of self-importance and it’s also believing ‘I am not good enough’ or ‘Who will read my books’ but as the curtains are down, it’s about being called ‘The author’. The word itself beholds a lot of pride and fierceness and that’s what she lives with.

    At a time when the internet has made it easy for people to read more books online, people don’t tend to read books enough or to say ‘they don’t value the smell of the books’. This, she feels, is the reason for a lot of nuisance that’s created in the society. As her father believes in, knowledge is not something you get with the degrees, it is what you capture in your morals and that’s what reading gives you. Rogering her father’s footprints of knowledge, she is a self-contemplating woman who stands bold in her decisions, in her writings and personal life.

    Apart from being a published author, she has also been a part of major organizations including NDTV, India’s largest Labour Bureau Project, Handled projects of the Ministry of Labour and Employment. She is also the CEO of a news organization titled ‘The Voix Tribune’ which has been meticulously working to raise voice against crime and injustice.

    Her book ‘I Will Win Without War’ narrates the story of a young woman, Sarah, who faced her childhood traumas, finally managed to conquer her fears and see her criminals face the wrath of agony. It’s about child abuse- the topic that needs to be discussed more in the society but is feared of been spoken as call it ‘a sensitive topic’. Her book is a little step towards acknowledging the predicament of the children, not in this country, but in the planet, who have faced any and all kinds of maltreatment that had led to them losing their childhood.

    A quote from the book ‘When a child is raped, not only the physiology but the emotion is raped’ is enough to explain the trauma that a child suffers when he witnessed child abuse or child rape. The aim of the book is to bring ‘CHILD ABUSE’ in the spotlight and ‘TALK ABOUT IT’.

    Find the book here: https://www.amazon.in/-/hi/Tanisha-Tiwari/dp/1685383408/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
    Being a part of the society and being a responsible citizen are two different things, Tanisha believes in the latter. For her, it’s what you do for people rather than what you expect them to do for yourself.

    For her, it’s about making those small changes that might not get noticed but you can’t unsee them for long!

  • Bhutan Kings: Jigme Singye Wangchuck and Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck World Happiness Awards 2021 Laureates

    World Happiness Awards

    World Happiness Awards

    His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck and his son His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck

    His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck and his son His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck

    There are incredible public policy developments happening at all levels of governance and we want to say thank you.

    Systemic change happens through Public Policy as it can determine social happiness and well-being for long periods of time. ”
    — Luis Gallardo, Founder & President - World Happiness Foundation
    NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Both the Kings His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck and his son His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck are the inspiration for the present times and times to come. We are blessed and delighted to honor them as World Happiness Awards 2021 Laureates in Policy Making.

    Join us in our celebration of people and communities, making this planet a better place for all!

    When a young Crown Prince running at 17 years of age became the King of Bhutan in 1972, one of His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck’s first and ever-lasting initiatives to bring happiness and wellbeing to his citizens was through the principles of Gross National Happiness, which he propounded was more important than Gross National Product. This concept questioned the conventional economic measurement system that GDP alone could not bring happiness and well-being to citizens.

    Although still a teenage monarch, His Majesty was wise beyond his years. He firmly believed that happiness was a valid indicator and a sign of progressive development for his country. He also believed in the legitimacy of public participation in defining Bhutan’s development goals. He brought the nation to a democracy without making the citizens realize it.

    The concept re-counts Bhutan’s ancient legal code of 1629 given by Zhabdrung whose embodiment is His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck that states ‘if the government cannot create happiness for its people, then there is no purpose for that government to exist.’ The code notes that Bhutanese laws must promote happiness for all sentient beings. For the King, the focus was never just the economic progress of his country but creating a flourishing human society living in harmony with its environment.

    Today, plentiful research shows that wealth alone doesn’t contribute to happiness and life satisfaction. The Gross National Happiness index measures the quality of its development holistically, believing that the positive development of human society happens when material and spiritual growth occurs alongside each other. That is why this small Himalayan country is considered a living example of sparking the debate on human development.

    Four decades later, Bhutan, now a democratic country, still ensures the inclusion and continuity of GNH values as enshrined in its Constitution of the Kingdom of Bhutan. As a public policy, the GNH development framework is supported by four pillars:

    Sustainable and equitable socio-economic development
    Conservation of the environment
    Preservation and promotion of culture
    Good governance

    An overarching objective within these pillars is eradicating poverty without any compromise with nature.

    His Majesty made sure to teach his son, the present King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, the same values so he could continue leading the country according to the most important gauging legacy – the happiness. GNH has been further enhanced and signified by the King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck as ‘Development with values bridging with kindness, equity, and humanity'.

    Acclaimed as ‘the people’s king,’ His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck has already won over hearts worldwide. He is a gentle, compassionate, and kind monarch who expanded a royal welfare system that helps the rural poor.

    He started his reign with the democratization of his country. He traveled and continues to visit all parts of the country mainly on foot, talking to people from all walks of life understanding their problems, and helping them through his government to come out with measures and policies to overcome their issues. He is engaged with young people about the importance of higher standards in education, business, and servicing. He signed the abolishment of anti-homosexuality laws and launched the National Cadastral Resurvey to resolve issues of excess land. He also established the Rehabilitation Project, which focuses on improving the lives of people who live in remote or difficult areas.

    According to the King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, every generation must interpret GNH in their own way because of the changes of time and environment that they would live in. He believes that a vibrant economy propelled by the right kind of technology and educated civilization is the very foundation on which national happiness can be built.

    Prof. Matthew Kroenig describes NCRI report, IRAN: IRGC’s Rising Drone Threat; A Desperate Regime’s Ploy to Project Power, Incite War, as "really amazing."

    It is really amazing the info NCRI has been able to provide on the regime’s activities, going back to very foundational revelations on the nuclear program 20 years ago, all the way to this report.”
    — Professor Matthew Kroenig, The Atlantic Council

    WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, December 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- On December 15, 2021, the US Representative Office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI-US) held a conference in Washington, DC. entitled “Policy Options to Counter the Rising Iranian Threat – First 100 Days of Ebrahim Raisi.” The NCRI-US’s latest book “IRAN: IRGC’s Rising Drone Threat; A Desperate Regime’s Ploy to Project Power, Incite War,” was presented by Alireza Jafarzadeh, Deputy Director of the NCRI-US, at the outset of conference.

    The event’s speakers were Senator Joe Lieberman, former Democratic senator from Connecticut; Ambassador Robert Joseph, former Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security; Mr. David Shedd, former Acting Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, former Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Intelligence Programs and Reform; Georgetown Professor Matthew Kroenig, Deputy Director, Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security, and Director, Global Strategy Initiative, The Atlantic Council; and Mr. Jonathan Ruhe, JINSA Director of Foreign Policy.

    Professor Mathew Kroenig remarks are below:

    Thank you very much, Alireza, for the invitation to be here today. Thanks to all of you for attending this discussion on this important issue. Thanks to my distinguished co-panelists.

    I have been focused on the Iranian nuclear challenge, in and out of government over the past 20 years. And I’ll get to that in a moment, but I did want to begin also by congratulating NCRI on this report [IRGC’s Rising Drone Threat; A desperate regime’s ploy to project power, incite war]. It’s really amazing, I think, over the past 20 years the kind of information NCRI has been able to provide on the Iranian regime’s activities, going back to some very foundational revelations on the nuclear program almost 20 years ago, and all the way to this report today. And if you haven’t read it yet, I would recommend that you do. It’s really remarkable the level of detail they get into in terms of Iranian drone production capability.

    And this is a real threat currently in the region. These drones have been used to kill Americans in Iraq, to attack Saudi oil facilities. Iran is using this drone proliferation to further their goals in the region by destabilizing the region. And I think understanding this threat is important. So, congratulations.

    Also before I turn to the nuclear threat, I also wanted to come to this idea of the Biden doctrine that some of my colleagues have referenced. Whenever there’s a new president, people ask, what is the president’s foreign policy doctrine? And it seems that the emerging Biden doctrine is this idea that we’re at an inflection point between democracy and autocracy and we need to rally the democracies, like at the Summit for Democracy last week, to take on these revisionist autocracies that are challenging the United States and its allies, challenging the rules-based international system. And it seems like a lot of the focus though is on China primarily and then to a lesser degree Russia. But I think as we think about this global competition between democracies and autocracies, we should also consider the Iranian regime as part of this. Just like China challenges us in the Indo-Pacific but globally, Russia is challenging the United States and its democratic partners in Europe, Iran is doing the same thing in the Middle East. And increasingly, Russia, China and Iran are working together: arms sales, military exercises. And so sometimes I think people think of Iran as a regional issue, but I think it is really a part of this global competition between democracy and autocracy.

    And in fact last year, a lot of my background is in nuclear issues, but last year I published a book called The Return of Great Power Rivalry: Democracy vs Autocracy from the Ancient World to the U.S. and China. And I think there is a lot of pessimism in some Western capitals, that our democracies are polarized and dysfunctional. Maybe the autocracies have the upper hand. They have firm leadership, they can plan for the long-term, they can impose decisions on their system. Meanwhile we’re fractious and polarized. But my book came to a different conclusion, that actually democracies have real advantages in these competitions, autocracies have real weaknesses. And I think this is true in Russia and China but certainly if you look at the Iranian regime.

    There’s a lot of focus on the sanctions but the real cause I would say of the struggling of the Iranian economy is the regime’s mismanagement of the economy. Diplomatically, the aggressive foreign policy of this region I think has led much of the rest of the world to counterbalance against it. And then it has the same military and security challenge that all dictatorships do, which is that it fears its own people more than it fears external enemies. And if you look at the behavior of the Iranian regime, it spends an awful lot of resources and attention on repressing and abusing the Iranian people.

    So, it should be apparent in what I said already, that this isn’t a conflict between the United States and Iran, it’s really a conflict between the current regime in Iran and really much of the rest of the world that wants to have a functioning rules-based international system, but countries like Russia, China, and Iran are challenging that.

    Okay, so let me come to the nuclear challenge, and this is significant. First, Iran is close to having a nuclear weapons capability. In order to build nuclear weapons, it essentially needs to do three things. It needs to have enough highly enriched uranium. It needs to have the ability to fashion that into a nuclear warhead. And it needs the ability to deliver that against its enemies.

    Many assess that Iran already has the ability to build at least a basic nuclear warhead. Iran already has the ability to deliver nuclear weapons against its enemies. It has the most sophisticated ballistic missile program in the Middle East. And so the last remaining piece is the uranium enrichment.

    And so people have focused on this breakout time: how long would it take the Supreme Leader to dash to one bomb’s worth of weapons-grade uranium? And right now, outside experts are estimating that this breakout time has shrunk down to as little as three weeks. So if the Supreme Leader made the decision today to enrich as much uranium as fast as possible, that he could be essentially to the point of no return within three weeks. This is really I think the worst position we’ve ever been in, including worse than in 2012, in the runup to the last deal.

    Why do we care about a nuclear-armed Iran? It poses a number of obvious threats. It could lead to further proliferation of nuclear weapons in the region and to terrorist groups. If Iran is backstopped by nuclear weapons and a nuclear threat, I think the regime would engage in more aggressive course of diplomacy and support to terrorism in the region and around the world. And there would be a risk of nuclear war. I don’t want to exaggerate that, I don’t think it’s high. But the risk is not zero. There would be I think serious crisis between a nuclear-armed Iran and nuclear-armed Israel, nuclear-armed United States. And any one of those could spiral out of control. And once Iran has intercontinental range missiles, which is something that it’s working on, it could result in a nuclear attack on the U.S. homeland. So, this is a serious threat. I think some of our partners are correct to say this is an existential threat.

    What to do about it? And I’ll wrap up there. Let me first address Alireza’s good question. Of course this nuclear program is not the result of the United States’ withdrawing from the JCPOA. This is something the Iranian’s have been working on for 20 years. They carefully negotiated the JCPOA so they could continue to advance their nuclear program, even with the deal in place. And then as Alireza correctly points out, they weren’t even living up to the strict terms of the deal even while the deal was in place. So, I think we need to keep our focus on the problem. The problem is the Iranian regime, not President Trump or his decision to withdraw from the agreement.

    What do we do about it? I think an engagement and pressure track makes sense. I think it’s fine if the Biden administration and others want to try to talk to the regime. I think it makes sense to talk to your enemies. But we need to have a stronger pressure track. I think the regime needs to understand that it can’t muddle through and get to a nuclear weapon, that if it continues on the path that it’s on, there are going to be unacceptable consequences.

    I think there are a number of ways we can dial up economic pressure, including secondary sanctions on Chinese purchases of Iranian oil. I think there are things we can do to make the regime worry more about its domestic insecurity issues, as David Shedd correctly pointed out, supporting the democratic aspirations of the Iranian people. And then I do think we need to put the military option back on the table as a last—well first to support diplomacy. I think that’s one thing that will concentrate the minds of many of the diplomats in Vienna, if they know that their efforts fail the result will be military strikes on Iran’s nuclear facilities. And then as a last resort to prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons if necessary.

    So I think by following a strategy like that, we can keep Iran from building nuclear weapons. But I think the ultimate goal, as many of my colleagues have pointed out, is to one day have a better government in Iran that respects the human rights of its own people and that follows a more cooperative foreign policy internationally. I’ll end my remarks there and look forward to the discussion. Thank you.

    Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is the most important film of our era”

    CENTURY CITY, CA, U.S.A., December 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- "Apple® has done more for Human Rights than any company in the world," said Michael Meyer, "The invention of the iPhone put power into the hands of every citizen and our film has made this a reality. Every film has the ability to spark conversations in America that are long overdue, conversations that might lead to lasting change."

    Omar Bradley, the producer of the film agrees, "When Apple® created the iPhone® it was the single most impactful change in society. They also created a seamless workflow to get the film through the editing process with Airdrop®, Final Cut Pro® and hardware that includes a MacBook Pro®. Omar is not just a filmmaker, he comes to filmmaking as the former Mayor of Compton and a former member of the City Council.

    Executive Producer Pierre Akinroluyo says, "Where we have been given so much, we must all be socially responsible. Apple® has put these powerful tools in our hands."

    "Millions of people took to the streets in the aftermath of George Floyd's murder. We were simply among the protesters documenting what happened. We took no joy in being there and did not undertake to sway the narrative. Our film is an immersive experience of what actually happened during our time in Minnesota. We were in a dangerous situation as seen in the film and our low profile presence being recorded on an iPhone kept us safe," said film director Michael Douglas Carlin, "More importantly our film documents stories that family members tell about losing a loved one to police violence. These stories help audience members all experience the pain families feel." Michael Douglas Carlin is the director of the film. He comes to this having investigated corruption in Mexico (American Federale) and the Rampart Scandal (Chaos Merchants). His style of filmmaking is to let the story tell itself and Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is no exception.

    Faizon Love, a well known actor and comedian says, "Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is the most important film of our era."

    Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma now boasts 14 film festival awards with the inclusion of the latest award from the Culver City Film Festival of Audience Choice Best Documentary. The film competed among 350 films that screened from December 4th - 11th at the Cinemark 18 in Culver City, home of Sony Pictures, Culver City Studios, Apple Studios and many other entertainment companies.

    With the establishment of Apple Studios in Culver City it is only fitting that a documentary utilizing Apple technology should be selected to appear in the Culver City Film Festival. Andy Libby commented, "Carlin's skillful use of iPhone technology to capture the untold stories of police brutality from the mouths of loved ones in Minnesota gives his film a fresh immediacy without sensationalism or sentimentality. He resists the temptation to insert himself into the narrative and dutifully stands his post imbedded among the peaceful protestors and those who would oppose or incite them."

    Audience Members commented overwhelmingly that Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is an immersive film. Said Libby in response, "The success of Michael Carlin's film is that he allows the narrative to tell itself without a droning narration or insertion of a hidden agenda. It is pure documentary without judgement or manipulation. Audiences feel their feet on the ground with the protestors on their sometimes perilous pilgrimage."

    "Current technology puts the power of filmmaking into the hands of each and every citizen," said former Mayor of Compton and producer of Minnesota, Omar Bradley, "this is a new era of filmmaking and we are thrilled to be on the cutting edge allowing the story to tell itself."

    Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is on the list of films in contention for an Oscar® among a total of 138 films this year:

    Academy members in the documentary branch can view Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma online and beginning today through December 15th can vote to get the film on the short list of 15 documentaries. So far, Minnesota has won 14 film festival awards including the current win of Audience Award Best Documentary at the Culver City Film Festival, added to other awards that include Best Feature Documentary at the Marina Del Rey and Silver State Film Festivals as well as Best Director at the Silicon Beach Film Festival.

    MVD Entertainment releases the film in January.

    The Academy Qualifying Theatrical release was in October in a time, post covid, when almost anything can happen, Minnesota racked up an impressive weekend per screen average of $1,420 on a single screen at the Laemmle Monica Film Complex in Santa Monica. Minnesota beat out big screen films including Disney’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Jungle Cruise, 20th Century Studios The Last Duel, Free Guy, Bleeker Street’s Mass, I’m your Man, A24’s Lamb, National Geographic’s Becoming Cousteau, Universal’s Candyman, Dear Evan Hansen and Searchlight’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye: In most cases by nearly double.

    Most people that see the film comment that they never knew that families, other than George Floyd’s, have been impacted by police violence. Minnesota tells the stories of other incidents that happened previous to the George Floyd Murder. These stories are all extremely emotional and audience members get to experience the pain through the family members’ eyes.

    Michael Douglas Carlin comes from a well-established Hollywood family having sat on Fess Parker’s lap as a young child. Carlin’s grandfather worked in the movie business as a driver and teamster driving for Cecil B. DeMille, Howard Hughes and many others. His last assignment before retirement was as a driver on the Steven Spielberg film, JAWS. His father worked in the industry as a gaffer before working full-time in the lighting equipment rental business, Keylite PSI, a company that Carlin’s father founded.

    Michael was a kid hanging out on the movie sets including: Ode to Billy Joe, (he had a bit part as an actor where he was directed by Max Baer Jr.); the 1976 remake of the movie, King Kong where he worked as a movie extra; and young Michael spent a summer in Chicago on the film The Fury directed by Brian DePalma where he bounced between working as an extra and a set electrician. Both King Kong and The Fury were filmed by acclaimed cinematographer, Richard Kline who would reunite with Michael Douglas Carlin on the film, Body Heat directed by Lawrence Kasdan. Carlin worked on Body Heat as a set electrician.

    Carlin would later run family business Keylite PSI that supplied equipment on many notable films like Robert Redford’s Ordinary People; Brian DePalma’s the Untouchables; Oliver Stone’s JFK and Platoon; Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs; Neal Israel’s Bachelor Party; Robert Altman’s Fool For Love; John Frankenheimer’s 52 Pickup; David Lynch’s Twin Peaks; Sean Penn’s The Indian Runner; Aaron Norris’ Braddock; Blake Edwards’ That’s Life; among hundreds of others. Keylite PSI also supplied the equipment for the first night landing of the Space Shuttle Challenger, the 1979 & 1980 Academy Awards®, and for over a dozen years supplied the equipment on the Hollywood Christmas Parade an event that young Michael worked on every year. Carlin also ran two motion picture studios – Valencia Studios and Osmond Studios. In recent years Carlin directed American Federale, Tupac Assassination Battle for Compton, Larger than Life the Suge Knight Story and he Executive Produced along with Stephen Nemeth, Hearts Road directed by Colin Finlay.

    In the mid to late 80s Carlin teamed up with Michael Meyer to produce a dozen low budget movies. Meyer, an entertainment lawyer, came from the management side of the business having worked with David Stewart and Larry Thompson. Meyer, was also a product of the movie business as his father personally represented Jules Stein and Lew Wasserman in the formation of Music Corporation of America, Universal Pictures and Universal Studios. Marvin Meyer of the firm of Rosenfeld, Meyer, and Sussman also represented Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, and hundreds of other notable clients.

    Michael Meyer and his company Native Stars reunited with Carlin to work on Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma. Meyer said, “Minnesota, fits in with Native Stars’ mission to inspire others to make a difference wherever they can. We are proud of our participation in this important film and applaud the director, Michael Douglas Carlin, with whom I have had a longstanding business and personal friendship for many decades.”

    Producing the movie, Minnesota, is Omar Bradley, the former Mayor of Compton. Bradley brought tremendous depth to the project and shaped the editing process. Bradley is known for closing down the Compton Police Department when it was discovered by internal auditors that a large amount of evidence was missing from the evidence locker including cocaine and weapons. The Los Angeles Sheriffs Department took on the policing of Compton and their contract continues to this day. Bradley was unseated as Mayor in a controversial election that was overturned by a Superior Court Judge and Bradley was unseated again by the Appellate Court. When Compton was turned over to the new mayor there was no debt and $63 million in the bank, in stark contrast to the debt laden Compton of today.

    Said Carlin, “Who better to produce such as salient documentary than a man from the inner-cities that understands the delicate balance between policing and the community? Bradley served as a City Councilman and Mayor. Additionally, now Omar has become an award-winning filmmaker to add to his growing body of work that includes being a published author.”

    The film is likely to remain relevant under the current climate with qualified immunity impossible to overturn at the Supreme Court level. Communities and their police departments must work out their differences much like a family having a meeting at the dinner table. “We hope our film can help facilitate these important conversations,” said Bradley. “Families have experienced pain and every officer should at a minimum be aware of what families feel when they lose a loved one.”

    CENTURY CITY, CA, USA, December 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Award Winning Film, Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma, scores another victory as Buffalo Soldier Descendants Agree to Forge Alliance withChihene Nde Apache Tribe in New Mexico.

    Descendants of the Buffalo Soldiers were on hand to meet with Knifewing Segura, representative of the ChiheneApache Tribe at an afterparty for the Culver City Film Festival held at the Marriott Hotel in Marina Del Rey. They all came to see, Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma a film now in contention for an Academy Award® in the Documentary Category of the Academy.

    The film’s content led to the conversation that sparked an historical reconciliation of men that for generations were sworn enemies that instantly became fast friends. Knifewing agreed to forge an economic alliance with the men by building a replica of South Central Neighborhoods on his Gallup New Mexico property to be used in creating content meant for the Urban Markets.

    “So much rich content comes from America’s Inner Cities and South Central Los Angeles has been a central theme in hundreds of stories that need to be told,” said Award Winning Producer and former Mayor of Compton, Omar Bradley. “The sets in New Mexico will give us a controlled safe environment to reenact scenes that delve into these important stories.”

    “For many years the Buffalo Soldiers were used to eradicate our people,” said Knifewing “Now it is time for us to turn all of our swords into ploughshares to plant the next crop of meaningful entertainment. We are happy about our participation in creating Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma that will pave the way.”

    Buffalo Soldier Descendants and Native Americans now have forged an economic alliance to bring quality content to life. “New Mexico offers production incentives that can be used in tandem with other economic incentives that make film production more affordable,” said Minnesota Director, Michael Douglas Carlin, “When you look at the financial structures it just makes sense to film urban content in New Mexico.”

    Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma was filmed in the aftermath of the George Floyd Murder and has received 13 film festival awards. “There was huge support from Apache descendants in completing the film so it only makes sense that it is used as a catalyst to create these economic ties,” said Executive Producer, Michael Meyer, “We cooperated on this film and see a strong content driven path to keep the team together and expand it by creating a mini South Central on or near tribal lands.”

    Recently, Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma won the audience choice best documentary at the Culver City Film Festival and now boasts 14 film festival awards. The film competed among 350 films that screened from December 4th - 11th at the Cinemark 18 in Culver City, home of Sony Pictures, Culver City Studios, Apple Studio and many other entertainment companies.

    With the establishment of Apple Studios in Culver City it is only fitting that a documentary utilizing Apple technology should be selected to appear in the Culver City Film Festival. Andy Libby commented, "Carlin's skillful use of iPhone technology to capture the untold stories of police brutality from the mouths of loved ones in Minnesota gives his film a fresh immediacy without sensationalism or sentimentality. He resists the temptation to insert himself into the narrative and dutifully stands his post imbedded among the peaceful protestors and those who would oppose or incite them."

    Audience Members commented overwhelmingly that Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is an immersive film. Said Libby in response, "The success of Michael Carlin's film is that he allows the narrative to tell itself without a droning narration or insertion of a hidden agenda. It is pure documentary without judgement or manipulation. Audiences feel their feet on the ground with the protestors on their sometimes perilous pilgrimage."

    "Current technology puts the power of filmmaking into the hands of each and every citizen," said former Mayor of Compton and producer of Minnesota, Omar Bradley, "this is a new era of filmmaking and we are thrilled to be on the cutting edge allowing the story to tell itself."

    Voting on the film by the Documentary Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences® begins today through the 15th. If the film garners enough support it will be included on the short list of 15 films to be announced on the 21st of December. Faizon Love said, “Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is the most important film of our era.”

    Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma, winner of 13 Film Festival Awards is now live in the Academy Screening Room for Oscar® consideration. Said film director, Michael Douglas Carlin, “we were in Minnesota when buildings were burning in a dangerous situation capturing the essence of the George Floyd Murder protests. Our Film sheds light on the issue of police violence as several families tell heartfelt stories detailing their loss of a family member.”

    At the event, Knifewing Segura said he understood the frustration with law enforcement having worked in their ranks for many years. He agreed that police and communities must sit at the table to sort out their differences instead to simply stripping funds from law enforcement organizations. “Much of what we are facing is due to budget cuts that eliminate valuable training,” said Knifewing. “We must make every dollar count by eliminating the drag on policing due to corrupt police officers. They need to find their way out of police departments.”

    Former Mayor of Compton and Producer of Minnesota agreed wholeheartedly. He is widely known as the mayor that stood up to corrupt police officers that stole evidence out of the Compton Evidence Locker. When he left Compton, the city had a $63 million dollar surplus and contracting with the sheriffs eliminated millions of dollars every year from the city budget. Bradley is looking forward to making films with the Apache Tribes as his alma mater is the Centennial High School Apache. “It simply feels like a homecoming to me.”

    “Knifewing and Bradley became fast friends at the event as they share so many interests,” said Carlin, “Knifewing came from a background in law enforcement to filmmaking and Bradley as the former Mayor of Compton was able to see film production through the eyes of his friend, Eazy-E. Now Bradley is a full-time filmmaker. Both men shared their stories with each other until late into the night.”

    Academy members in the documentary branch can view Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma online and beginning today through December 15th can vote to get the film on the short list of 15 documentaries.

    Michael Douglas Carlin comes from a well-established Hollywood family having sat on Fess Parker’s lap as a young child. Carlin’s grandfather worked in the movie business as a driver and teamster driving for Cecil B. DeMille, Howard Hughes and many others. His last assignment before retirement was as a driver on the Steven Spielberg film, JAWS. His father worked in the industry as a gaffer before working full-time in the lighting equipment rental business, Keylite PSI, a company that Carlin’s father founded.

    Michael was a kid hanging out on the movie sets including: Ode to Billy Joe, (he had a bit part as an actor where he was directed by Max Baer Jr.); the 1976 remake of the movie, King Kong where he worked as a movie extra; and young Michael spent a summer in Chicago on the film The Fury directed by Brian DePalma where he bounced between working as an extra and a set electrician. Both King Kong and The Fury were filmed by acclaimed cinematographer, Richard Kline who would reunite with Michael Douglas Carlin on the film, Body Heat directed by Lawrence Kasdan. Carlin worked on Body Heat as a set electrician.

    Carlin would later run family business Keylite PSI that supplied equipment on many notable films like Robert Redford’s Ordinary People; Brian DePalma’s the Untouchables; Oliver Stone’s JFK and Platoon; Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs; Neal Israel’s Bachelor Party; Robert Altman’s Fool For Love; John Frankenheimer’s 52 Pickup; David Lynch’s Twin Peaks; Sean Penn’s The Indian Runner; Aaron Norris’ Braddock; Blake Edwards’ That’s Life; among hundreds of others. Keylite PSI also supplied the equipment for the first night landing of the Space Shuttle Challenger, the 1979 & 1980 Academy Awards®, and for over a dozen years supplied the equipment on the Hollywood Christmas Parade an event that young Michael worked on every year. Carlin also ran two motion picture studios – Valencia Studios and Osmond Studios. In recent years Carlin directed American Federale, Tupac Assassination Battle for Compton, Larger than Life the Suge Knight Story and he Executive Produced along with Stephen Nemeth, Hearts Road directed by Colin Finlay.

    In the mid to late 80s Carlin teamed up with Michael Meyer to produce a dozen low budget movies. Meyer, an entertainment lawyer, came from the management side of the business having worked with David Stewart and Larry Thompson. Meyer, was also a product of the movie business as his father personally represented Jules Stein and Lew Wasserman in the formation of Music Corporation of America, Universal Pictures and Universal Studios. Marvin Meyer of the firm of Rosenfeld, Meyer, and Sussman also represented Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, and hundreds of other notable clients.

    Michael Meyer and his company Native Stars reunited with Carlin to work on Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma. Meyer said, “Minnesota, fits in with Native Stars’ mission to inspire others to make a difference wherever they can. We are proud of our participation in this important film and applaud the director, Michael Douglas Carlin, with whom I have had a longstanding business and personal friendship for many decades.”

    Producing the movie, Minnesota, is Omar Bradley, the former Mayor of Compton. Bradley brought tremendous depth to the project and shaped the editing process. Bradley is known for closing down the Compton Police Department when it was discovered by internal auditors that a large amount of evidence was missing from the evidence locker including cocaine and weapons. The Los Angeles Sheriffs Department took on the policing of Compton and their contract continues to this day. Bradley was unseated as Mayor in a controversial election that was overturned by a Superior Court Judge. Bradley was unseated by the Appellate Court. When Compton was turned over to the new mayor there was no debt and $63 million in the bank, in stark contrast to the debt laden Compton of today.

    Said Carlin, “Who better to produce such as salient documentary than a man from the inner-cities that understands the delicate balance between policing and the community? Bradley served as a City Councilman and Mayor. Additionally, now Omar has become an award-winning filmmaker to add to his growing body of work that includes being a published author.”

    The film is likely to remain relevant under the current climate with qualified immunity impossible to overturn at the Supreme Court level. Communities and their police departments must work out their differences much like a family having a meeting at the dinner table. “We hope our film can help facilitate these important conversations,” said Bradley. “Families have experienced pain and every officer should at a minimum be aware of what families feel when they lose a loved one.”

    Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is the Most Important Film of Our Era”
    — Faizon Love
    CULVER CITY, CA, USA, December 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma now boasts 14 film festival awards with the inclusion of this award from the Culver City Film Festival. The film competed among 350 films that screened from December 4th - 11th at the Cinemark 18 in Culver City, home of Sony Pictures, Culver City Studios, Apple Studio and many other entertainment companies.

    With the establishment of Apple Studios in Culver City it is only fitting that a documentary utilizing Apple technology should be selected to appear in the Culver City Film Festival. Andy Libby commented, "Carlin's skillful use of iPhone technology to capture the untold stories of police brutality from the mouths of loved ones in Minnesota gives his film a fresh immediacy without sensationalism or sentimentality. He resists the temptation to insert himself into the narrative and dutifully stands his post imbedded among the peaceful protestors and those who would oppose or incite them."

    Audience Members commented overwhelmingly that Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is an immersive film. Said Libby in response, "The success of Michael Carlin's film is that he allows the narrative to tell itself without a droning narration or insertion of a hidden agenda. It is pure documentary without judgement or manipulation. Audiences feel their feet on the ground with the protestors on their sometimes perilous pilgrimage."

    "Current technology puts the power of filmmaking into the hands of each and every citizen," said former Mayor of Compton and producer of Minnesota, Omar Bradley, "this is a new era of filmmaking and we are thrilled to be on the cutting edge allowing the story to tell itself."

    Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is on the list of films in contention for an Oscar® among a total of 138 films this year:

    Academy members in the documentary branch can view Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma online and beginning today through December 15th can vote to get the film on the short list of 15 documentaries. So far, Minnesota has won 14 film festival awards including the current win of Audience Award Best Documentary at the Culver City Film Festival, added to other awards that include Best Feature Documentary at the Marina Del Rey and Silver State Film Festivals as well as Best Director at the Silicon Beach Film Festival.

    MVD Entertainment releases the film in January.

    The Academy Qualifying Theatrical release was in October in a time, post covid, when almost anything can happen, Minnesota racked up an impressive weekend per screen average of $1,420 on a single screen at the Laemmle Monica Film Complex in Santa Monica. Minnesota beat out big screen films including Disney’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Jungle Cruise, 20th Century Studios The Last Duel, Free Guy, Bleeker Street’s Mass, I’m your Man, A24’s Lamb, National Geographic’s Becoming Cousteau, Universal’s Candyman, Dear Evan Hansen and Searchlight’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye: In most cases by nearly double.

    Most people that see the film comment that they never knew that families, other than George Floyd’s, have been impacted by police violence. Minnesota tells the stories of other incidents that happened previous to the George Floyd Murder. These stories are all extremely emotional and audience members get to experience the pain through the family members’ eyes.
