The CEO of an art promotion company tells thieves to Burn the Art they stole over a year ago and explains why.Enter, stranger, but take heed Of what awaits the sin of greed... For those who take but do not earn, Must pay most dearly in their turn,”BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Robert Star is the CEO of Star Global International Inc, an art promotion company that self-styles itself as “Thinking out of the box.” They conceived and produced the Million Dollar Harley Davidson in 2010. This unique piece of kinetic art was painted by Cosmic Artist Jack Armstrong and launched him on the world stage. It is the world’s most expensive motorcycle. Star is telling the thieves who stole two paintings by Armstrong valued at over $7 million to either return the art to its legal owners or burn it.— J.K.Rowling
In February last year, two unique paintings were taken when thieves stole Star’s car specially customized to conceal and securely transport high-value art. The paintings were being taken to an art buyer in Beverly Hills for viewing. The police recovered the vehicle but have so far been unable to retrieve the art. Their art theft recovery unit was part of the defunding cutbacks. Last November, Star authorized a press release offering a reward for their return. He has had seven contacts from different people, all with similar stories. They know somebody who knows somebody who physically has the paintings and is trying to sell them in China. CEO Star is confident that the paintings are still in California and that the thief or thieves are misconceived and holding out for a substantial reward.
Star explained that if anyone is caught with these unique masterpieces, they have criminal liability and, if convicted, will go to prison. He advises them to return the paintings to their owners or burn the art. I asked Star about this somewhat extreme ‘burn” advice.
Star responded, “My advice to the thieves may not be as extreme as it first sounds. These paintings are worthless to any thief because they are both secretly coded, and Star Global must issue an original certificate of origin. No collector or investor buying million-dollar rare art wants to buy a stolen work when it is so easily recognizable. They would undoubtedly contact Star Global to confirm the legitimacy of any painting. There are only 100 of these Cosmic paintings by Armstrong, who has vowed to the world that no more than 100 will ever exist.
His inspiration to create only 100 of these exceptional cosmic paintings came from The Black Star Sapphire of Queensland (733 cts.), a $200 million gem he believed had magical powers and specifically instructed him that no more than 100 should ever exist. He has stated that if a stolen painting is returned, he will publicly burn any canvasses to maintain the number at precisely 100. Indeed, before he founded this new art form, Cosmic Extensionalism (Cosmic X), he burned all his prior paintings.
Artists burning their works is not as unusual as it sounds—a Fanatical Monk Inspired 15th-Century Italians to burn their art. Damien Hirst just announced he would burn thousands of his paintings. Much of his work is said to be produced by assistants. Michelangelo, the Great Sculptor, burned his sketches so there would not be any evidence of the work and processes to get there. Before moving on from his previous traditional works, John Baldessari decided in 1970 to have them destroyed. There are more examples.
Contemporary artists, from Gerhard Richter to Bansky, have followed in the footsteps of their predecessors. Ironically, some of these artists have proved that destroying their art isn’t always defeatist or for sheer vanity but allows for liberation, which inspires new levels of creativity. However, the reason for Jack Armstrong’s commitment to publicly burn his stolen art if recovered is as unique as his art itself.
So, it’s simple, my message to the thieves is to burn the art or turn them into a local fire station and ask them to notify law enforcement. You will keep yourself out of harm’s way. This stolen cosmic art is bad mojo. Doing the right thing, the universe will reward you.”
Johnathan Holifield outlines a path toward improved U.S. competitiveness through diversity, equity and inclusion.
ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Some may only know Johnathan Holifield as a former Cincinnati Bengals running back, but since his stint in the NFL, he’s been anything but idle. Now senior vice president for new economies at Bitwise Industries, Holifield has gained important insight into America’s economic engine and why, he says, the country can’t win without strengthening at once inclusion and competitiveness.
His book, The Future Economy and Inclusive Competitiveness: How Demographic Trends and Innovation Can Create Economic Prosperity for All Americans, provides a way for America to advance in the global economic competitiveness battle. The solution Holifield suggests is inclusive competitiveness: a framework designed to connect underestimated populations to the best opportunities in the U.S. economy, improving their performance and boosting national productivity.
Holifield’s vision of the future economy is achieving more with the goal of getting “all hands on deck.” According to his model, this will happen only by including disconnected Americans, such as women, African Americans, Latinos and rural populations, in America’s economic competitiveness priorities and no longer relegating their aspirations to less productive areas of the economy.
The book “offers a clear critique of how we got to such low productivity of underserved humans in the Innovation Economy,” Holifield said. “… and an even clearer, implementable path to achieving genuine economic inclusion and competitiveness.”
The Future Economy and Inclusive Competitiveness is an important read for anyone who is passionate about community transformation, generational wealth creation and U.S. competitiveness, and interested in a proven framework to make them happen.
Holifield’s unique background effectively carrying out inclusive competitiveness in the government and private sectors and more, has given him equally unique and actionable ideas. In regard to his early mover position, he says he “may be the first person to explicitly link improved U.S. global competitiveness to diversity, equity and inclusion.”

For many boys and girls, the opening day of the hunting season is very exciting! Tavey is finally old enough to hunt, along with an adult.

The book is currently the top seller on Amazon among diet books and nutrition books and the top selling nutrition book on Amazon for Kindle.

Subtitled The Last Diet You Will Ever Need!, this book has been a popular choice for years and has been updated twice. Now a new generation of readers is being educated about benefits of superfood nutrition and is being encouraged to take practical steps toward achieving their health goals.
The book goes through periods of demand as a result of Craichy’s speaking schedule. He is reaching new audiences all the time through podcasts, social media and in-person events where he shares a message of hope centered on wise eating. The Super Health Diet also reemerged as the top seller on Amazon and Barnes & Noble back in 2020 during the height of the pandemic as people took a renewed interest in nutrition and its role in a healthy immune system.
The Super Health Diet takes a critical look at many of the most popular diets, exposing the pitfalls and detailing how they can leave the dieter vulnerable to gaining even more weight in the long run.

Global Marine Exploration (GME) vs the Country of France court case is set to go to trial in April of 2023 in federal court, Tallahassee, Florida.TALLAHASSEE , FLORIDA, USA, August 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Global Marine Exploration (GME) vs the Country of France case is set to go to trial in April of 2023 in federal court, Tallahassee, Florida. Steve Turner of the R W law firm, is the lead attorney of record.
After GME’s win in the 11th circuit court of federal appeals against France Case no. 4:20-cv-00181, GME has asserted four claims against France:
(1) And in personam salvage lien;
(2) quasi contract/unjust enrichment’;
(3) misappropriation of GME’S trade secret information and
(4) interference with GME’s rights and relations.
GME had received fourteen contracts with the State of Florida between early 2014 and late 2016 to explore and hopefully discover historical shipwrecks off Cape Canaveral in front of the NASA/USAF base. At enormous risk and costs, GME succeeded in finding five shipwrecks four of which matched with specific treasure wrecks they had been looking for based on research provided them by world renowned shipwreck historian and underwater archaeologist Robert Marx. But, after GME had taken all the risks and done all that work, the State of Florida, said they needed to look into what to do, as, until GME succeeded, no new shipwreck sites had been found in Florida waters in over 30 years. Then the State stopped answering the phone.
In mid 2016 Florida’s State Archaeologist along with Florida’s Secretary of State collaborated (conspired) and negotiated with France, without GMEs involvement, to recover the five shipwrecks GME had discovered while under contract with the State of Florida. One of the shipwrecks had a potential to be French, but to date has not been proven 100%. France and Florida later in fact entered into an agreement to recover the shipwrecks and pushed GME to the side without any sort of compensation. Instead, giving unfounded and spurious reasons, Florida cancelled GME’s contract, without due process and without any sort of compensation.
Although the treasures of these shipwrecks listed in historical records, has been estimated be to hundreds of millions to over one billion dollars, the monetary benefit to France and the State of Florida from these shipwrecks would eventually be in the tens of billions of dollars due to increased tourism. GME would be entitled to sixty percent of the estimated value of the treasure for their monetary risks, project percentage completed, years of work and their successful discovery of these historical ships.
GME continues to move forward while looking into potential litigation finance.

"When I was at Dartmouth college, I discovered I had a gift. I had the ability to interview athletes and then tell their stories using the written word. For example, Red Rolfe, our athletic director, had been the third baseman for the Yankees in the 1920s and 1940s, and he loved it when I would come into his office and talk with him about his days with the Yankees. He'd tell me about Joe DiMaggio and Joe McCarthy, and I'd be in heaven.
In 1972 I signed a contract with Prentice-Hall to write a book about the Yankees. I spent three years traveling the country interviewing those who played between 1949 and 1964. I interviewed Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, and many more.
It has been 50 years since I signed that contract, and I am still writing books. Lou Gehrig once said he was the luckiest man on the face of the earth. But I'm not sure that's true. I am." - Peter Golenbock

Along Came a Cowgirl: Daring and Iconic Women of Rodeos and Wild West Shows is the story of the riding marvels of yesteryear. Young women admired these cowgirls – women who dared to break society’s traditional roles, jump aboard a horse, and hold their own in a male profession. The women included in the book came from a variety of backgrounds and locations, but all had in common the desire to entertain crowds on the backs of their horses. With a lot of grit and determination, they were able to saddle up and follow their dreams.
