  • The Future is Female: Fusion Movement’s New E-Book Explores Female Primacy and the Divine Feminine Power

    The book is split into three sections focusing on how women can use their power and curate one-sided female-driven polyamorous relationships.

    Female Primacy is unapologetic about the apparent one-sidedness of female polyamory, keeping in mind that everything about humanity starts with femaleness while maleness is a secondary add-on.”
    — Fusion Polyamory
    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Over the last few decades, women’s empowerment and advocacy for women’s rights have dominated headlines. The Fusion Movement wants to bring attention to the power of the Divine Feminine through their new book, How Women Can Have Their Cake & Eat It Too: A Guide to Emotional Monogamy and Sexual Freedom in Relationships. Released in 2022, the book is split into three sections focusing on how women can use their power and curate one-sided female-driven polyamorous relationships.

    Fusion Polyamory readers will find a narrative set outlining the Dual Mating Pattern of Females in chapter one, Sperm Competition Among Males in chapter two, and Curating the One-Sided Female-Driven Polyamorous Relationship in chapter three. Each of these chapters offers a framework within which partners and single women can work to employ more female primacy in their personal and sexual relationships and a deeper understanding of the stigmas surrounding nonmonogamy.

    Fusion Polyamory represents an expansive view of female sexuality and challenges the traditional model of monogamy. As traditional gender roles consistently face new challenges by men and women, more diverse relationships have become commonplace. However, the stigma of non-nuclear family dynamics remains. The book deems education necessary. The book's opening chapter states, “In 2020, the average age for marriage was approximately 31 years. This is a relatively massive jump compared to 1970 when most married by age 20.”

    Female-led relationships and female primacy assert that women should drive sexual relationships. Patriarchal roles diametrically oppose the natural state of sex. All humans are born from a woman's womb. All humans begin as a female in the womb. Primacy acknowledges females’ natural leadership qualities and counters the unsustainable male model of conquest and domination.

    “Female Primacy is unapologetic about the apparent one-sidedness of female polyamory, keeping in mind that everything about humanity starts with femaleness while maleness is a secondary add-on.”

    This revolutionary book is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn more about how they can empower themselves and their partner(s) through understanding female primacy and the movement toward non-traditional relationships.

    The Fusion Movement’s goal to empower women stems from the belief that non-traditional relationships and polyamory are more innate in human beings than monogamous relationships. However, the understanding is that polyamorous relationships must hold value for both partners to be successful. Not only are the ideas presented rooted in science (hormones, anthropological studies, etc.), but they are also shown in an educational format that prepares readers for making life changes that suit their needs.

    About Fusion Movement

    Fusion Movement was started as an in-depth look into women’s sexual function. The
    sexual function is known as “Female Primacy.” The Fusion movement aims to understand “the big picture” and the point at which aspects of society fuse (sexuality, culture, inclusivity, confidence, sexual autonomy, consent, emotions, empowerment, and holding space). The complexities and nuances of women’s sexuality are embraced rather than tolerated. The Fusion Movement dedicates its mission to proactive change and power dynamics. The brand is about sex and the abstract ways sexuality can be expressed. Sensuality, red lipstick (to indicate arousal), teasing, and restraints are accepted and acknowledged. Women can identify as women and still be masculine or feminine, or both. Their sexual prowess is observed, acknowledged, listened to, and not judged. The Fusion Movement intends to make a positive impact by helping businesses, brands, and organizations. The movement works with nonprofits and partners with nonprofits related to women’s rights, anti-sex trafficking, women’s health, and activism. Fusion Movement works with nonprofits and partners with nonprofits related to women's shelters, women's reproductive rights, and activism. They spread general awareness campaigns concerning women’s issues and align in solidarity with other women’s movements.

  • Bestselling author Susan Go models career success and a dedication to giving back

    Susan Go

    Asian Women Trailblazers Who BossUp Cover

    The technology executive created an Asian American employee resource group and services two nonprofits, one working with kids and the other with immigrants

    Know your purpose and know your value. Because no one can tell you that for you.”
    — Susan Go
    SAN FANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Susan Go watched her immigrant parents model an incredible work ethic, working blue-collar jobs their whole lives to provide for their four children. She got the message: stability and financial security are the top priorities when it came to career choices. So she chose the up-and-coming computer science industry as her area of focus in college.

    Fortunately, she also liked it! Upon graduating with a degree in Information Systems, she found a position as a sales liaison that allowed her to combine her technical knowledge and skill with her natural passion for talking with customers and creating presentations. That was her first job out of college and she has made her whole career in that space, rising to Senior Director of Solution Engineering.

    Her other passion—giving back to the community—took a bit longer to reveal itself. She began to volunteer locally and discovered Touching Heart, an organization that helps kids select, plan, and host their own fundraising events and projects as a way to introduce them to philanthropy. “I’m a mother of three kids, and I believe that it’s important to expose our children to giving back at a young age,” she says. “It’s a mindset. When you get to see someone in a different situation it broadens your horizon, the way you look at the world, the way you appreciate what you have. Touching Heart’s mission is, yes, raising kids to give back, but ultimately it’s about raising the next generation to become compassionate leaders. Don’t we want a world where leaders think about more than just themselves or their bottom line?”

    Susan also gives back at work. In enterprise software sales, she did not see many other Asians in positions like hers. “I was always seeking ways to connect with other Asians because it would be great just to have someone else at work who has that shared perspective,” she says. So she made it happen, by launching an Asian American employee resource group for the D.C. Metro area. “When we started, it was only a few members. Now the organization has grown to over 160. It’s a dual mission: the professional development and support of the Asian American members, along with raising awareness of our cultures and informing our allies. It’s about advocating, being that voice in the room, connecting with others, and finding mentors. The professional development piece really relies on our allies. Because, again, looking in the space that I’m in there aren’t that many other Asians, much less Asian women.”

    Connect with Susan Go on LinkedIn and read more of her story in the upcoming book Asian Women Trailblazers Who Boss Up, a collection of inspiring interviews with Asian women who have broken the mold, overcome obstacles, and have a wealth of advice to share.

  • AUTHOR LUISA PLANCHER AGREES WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP IN MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN IN HER BOOK: The Strength of the Nation

    The Strength of the Nation

    YORBA LINDA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- What makes a nation great is a question that many people ask but never quite get to the bottom of the answer.

    From Luisa Plancher’s perspective described in her book, "The Strength of the Nation," there is one answer that is oftentimes not mentioned or considered in the conversation. And that answer is “GOD”.

    "The Strength of the Nation," published in 2017, started as only a paragraph in Luisa Plancher’s unpublished book entitled The Angel of the Lord, written in the ’80s. Then, when President Donald Trump appeared on the political scene in 2016, indicating that he wanted to “Make America Great and Strong Again”, Luisa realized that she had written about this subject in her unpublished book, The Angel of the Lord. Therefore, she decided to expand her views and make a new book with the same title: “The Strength of the Nation”.

    Aaron, a reader, left a review of the book on Amazon saying, “I like how well-balanced each topic is covered, and how dedicated the author was in her research. Plancher is well-informed in both American and world history. This is displayed by how conversant she is with topical issues and how she discusses in-depth pertinent matters.”

    Luisa Plancher is an Italian School Teacher who moved to the United States after marrying an American citizen.
    Her American career consists of a degree in Political Science and a hefty amount of years in social work.

    "The Strength of the Nation" is her testimony of how far America, as a country, has developed since 1776, and how the history of this great country should be upheld, especially in schools. It is a reminder that strengthening a nation is possible when we prioritize our motivations and objectives.

    Read more about Luisa Plancher’s “The Strength Of The Nation” by purchasing her book on Amazon and looking at her page on YouTube.

  • DR. ALGIRDAS KANAUKA SHARES HIS STORY OF EXPERIENCES, ADVENTURES, AND SURVIVAL BEFORE WORLD WAR II IN HIS MEMOIR

    Raven’s Flight to Freedom

    Author Dr. Algirdas Kanauka writes about the World War II Lithuania to Soviet occupation in his book Raven’s Flight to Freedom

    YORBA LINDA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- There are all kinds of memories; those that are better kept to oneself and those that, when shared, are better. Through the latter, other people get to catch a glimpse of what has been and learn from them. And this is true for author Dr. Algirdas Kanauka as he tells the story of his life in his memoir, "Raven’s Flight to Freedom."

    "Raven’s Flight to Freedom" was published in February last year by Diamond Media Press Co. It has over three hundred pages worth of Dr. Kanauka’s recollection and interpretation of memories and perceptions back in the day, with its main theme being survival, starting from his life in Lithuania before World War II, and concludes in realizing new ideas from old memories.

    In the book’s author’s note, he wrote, “I was driven by desire to share experiences of journeying on this planet with my fellow travelers.”

    "Raven’s Flight to Freedom," according to an Amazon customer, is “told with intelligence, erudition, and wit by a brave man who truly loves both his native and his adopted countries”.

    Indeed, Dr. Kanauka has written the book so vividly and with so much respect and precaution towards those he has mentioned. He also kept relevant details, which elevates the reading experience. Truly is a one-of-a-kind veteran’s autobiography.

    Dr. Algirdas Kanauka, after all the adventures he has made memories from, is now retired and is currently residing and enjoying the warm waters of Southern California while freelance writing. And his memoir, "Raven’s Flight to Freedom," is available on Amazon.

    HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- EXCLUSIVE interview with Michael Madsen about 'American Badass: A Michael Madsen Retrospective' — The First Glimpse of New Soul-Baring Documentary!

    Directed by Dominique Milano, American Badass: A Michael Madsen Retrospective is exactly what the title promises. Through interviews with several colleagues and family members and many stories told directly from the man himself, the documentary is an examination of Madsen’s life and career. Structurally, it is more associative than linear, going back and forth between a troubled youth and his breaking into the acting world.

    Of course, the interviews with the likes of Quentin Tarantino, John Travolta, Daryl Hannah, Madsen, Ron Perlman, Robert Forster, and Chuck Zito, among many others, are interspersed with clips from various movies, both starring Madsen and those that inspired him. In addition, old family photos and reenactments are woven throughout the tales of him growing up, be it from his sisters Virginia and Cheryl, or from the writer/actor himself. #michaelmadsen #fabtv

    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,”
    — J.K.Rowling
    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.
    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.”

    How To Maintain A Career As A Working Actor In Film And Television

    Do anything you can to perfect the art of performing so when you get your chance you are ready.”
    — Larkin Campbell
    LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- From young dreamers to late in lifers looking to reach for their dreams, people of all ages and backgrounds are often looking to break into the film and television.

    While many are hoping to achieve an often out of touch dream of Hollywood superstardom, many are just excited to enter a business they have long admired and make a career out of it, and for those people look no further than the sage words of veteran film and television actor Larkin Campbell.

    Larkin has maintained a successful career in Hollywood as a consistently working actor, in shows like The Office alongside Steve Carrell and Ed Helms, plus feature films with Leonardo DiCaprio, Janeane Garofalo, Ben Stiller, Betty White, Tom Hanks, Sylvester Stallone, Tom Cruise, Chris Rock and more.

    He shares many stories of his 30+ year career in Tinseltown, in his book A VIEW FROM THE MIDDLE: HOW AN UNKNOWN ACTOR MANAGED TO STAY THAT WAY, and offers up such tips for maintaining a career in film and television like:

    - Shoot stuff on your own and with your friends. Every single scene that you film on your phone, etc., will help you.

    -Try out filming dramatic scenes and comedic scenes of varying lengths. Practicing this regularly will help you improve and prepare you for the self-tape auditions you will be asked to do.

    - Do regional theatre, make YouTube videos, make Tik-Tok videos, and do anything you can to perfect the art of performing so that you are ready when you get your chance.

    ”Becoming an actor is about having your craft ready when an opportunity arises. It’s hard to get an agent, it’s hard to get a manager, and you have to put in the effort to find work. But you don’t have a chance if you’re not ready when your opportunity arrives.”

    About Larkin Campbell

    Larkin Campbell is a small-town kid at heart and always will be. He was raised in the tiny, but spectacular mountain town of Estes Park, Colorado. He grew up playing stick-ball in the street, performing in high school plays and working on the school newspaper. Him and his band of lunatic friends started a comedic dance group aptly named, "Campbell's Crazy Crew". They performed at high school basketball games, pep rallies and cheerleader camps until they realized nobody was still watching.

    He moved to Washington to attend Tacoma Community College and lived with his father in a gorgeous little harbor town named Gig Harbor. He studied acting and journalism before transferring east across the state to attend Washington State University.

    While there, he perfected the art of procrastination and tomfoolery, where he studied Broadcast Journalism and Theatre. While visiting Los Angeles on spring break of his senior year at WSU, he put in a request for an internship at the hit TV show Entertainment Tonight. His request was granted and upon graduation, he headed for the bright lights of the big city.

    Interning and then being employed at Entertainment Tonight opened his eyes to the big business of show business. He worked the red carpets at the Golden Globes Award shows and he was hooked. He moved on to work for other productions as a Production Assistant and personal assistant for Tom and Rosanne Arnold.

    He spent many years working as a stand-in and photo double on dozens of big budget movies such as ARMEGEDDON, LETHAL WEAPON 4, MYSTERY MEN, ESCAPE FROM LA, HARD RAIN and dozens more. All the while hustling down agents and casting directors and anyone who would give him a look. He joined the Screen Actors Guild in 1995, and has never stopped chasing down the next role or opportunity. His hard work has paid off in dozens of roles in film and TV. Highlights include guest starring roles on CSI: NY, LAS VEGAS, CRIMINAL MINDS and a bucket list supporting role playing COACH SHANE, opposite Steve Carell and Ed Helms in THE OFFICE.

    His multiple film career highlights include playing HR HALDEMAN, in the highly acclaimed Clint Eastwood film, J EDGAR.

    He has written, produced and starred in over 25 short films and video projects which have gone on to win many awards at film festivals all over the country. His work has been published in multiple parenting magazines, describing the life of a stay-at-home-parent, trying to juggle the rigorous life of an actor. He recently chronicled his 30-year career in a hilarious and heartfelt memoir titled, A VIEW FROM THE MIDDLE: HOW AN UNKNOWN ACTOR MANAGED TO STAY THAT WAY, currently available on AMAZON.

    He is married to his wife of 25 years, Maria Battle Campbell, who is a hard charging Assistant Director, currently working on the AVATAR sequels. They are the proud parents of twin teenage boys, Colin and Casey. And are trying to survive raising their maniacal youngest daughter, Shea.

    Beverly Hills philanthropist / Sima Collezione founder Sima Azadegan made a special red carpet appearance for Natasha Graziano’s "Be It Until You Become It."

    Sima Collezione is a clothing line of heart and soul. I hope that my truth and my story can trickle down and help other ladies and other people who are going through this journey.”
    — Sima Azadegan
    MALIBU, CA, US, August 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Sima Collezione makes custom, six-figure evening dresses for an elite handful of clients. Mrs. Azadegan sketched out her “All Bright” collection while stuck at home, at the start of Covid in 2020. By September of 2021, she had embarked on an international whirlwind of runway shows, starting in Soho, New York. Then in February of 2022, she did shows at Palazzo Visconte, Milan, and Galerie La Bourbon, Paris. In March, she was on to the Forbes 30/50 Women International Summit, Abu Dhabi. Sima Collezione received positive coverage in Vogue, Bazar, Elle, Forbes, and Marie Claire among many more. The designer says that with her dresses, “ladies can tap in to understanding the deeper meaning of life. It’s not just about looking good and trying to make a statement. It’s about really being in touch with your authentic self and your inner light.”

    Mrs. Graziano’s book launch was a great place for the philanthropist-turned designer to meet and mingle with other high-powered guests dedicated to personal transformation and the light of consciousness. Mrs. Graziano’s book describes the author’s MBS personal growth system, which pairs breathwork and meditation with purpose to achieve what her fans call life-changing results. "Be It Until You Become It" contains quotes from some early “New Thought” leaders, who strongly influenced today’s Law of Attraction coaches, motivational speakers, and authors.

    Mrs. Graziano tells how in the space of about a year she went from rock bottom, hiding a drug addiction and living in her mom’s basement, to sharing a stage with some of today’s highest paid speakers. She has 10 million Instagram followers, who she calls her community. “I realized that every single day, no matter what you’re going through, you will always see a glimmer of light like a candle. And if you focus on that light, you can follow it out of the darkness. This is the light that can guide you to long-lasting happiness,” says Natasha.

    Sima Azadegan’s “journey of inner consciousness” took “15 or 16” years of her life. Both women in telling their stories talk not only of abundance, but of being service-oriented, and using wealth as a tool to help others. Sima’s giving activity has included charitable board work and fundraising millions for Hadassah Hospital Neuromuscular Disease Foundation, Children’s Hospital, Children’s International, Beyond Vision and more. Natasha Graziano works with a charity to help the homeless which Sima also supported this night. Mrs. Graziano aims to one day open an orphanage in Africa.

    Sima says, “There is a reason that I’m here. It’s to have my story heard. To allow this fashion project to stand for truthfulness. To stand for authenticity… This is not an ordinary clothing line. And I don’t see it as an ordinary clothing line. It's a clothing line of heart and soul… I hope that my truth and my story can trickle down and help other ladies or other people who are going through this journey. So they know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. You can make it. It is possible to manifest your dreams and live the life you want to live.”

    Some of the many notable guests at the event included Natasha’s husband, Michael Graziano, motivational speaker and friend of Oprah, Tim Storey, high stakes performance coach Thomas McCarthy, actor Michael-Leon Wooley (voice of Louis the Alligator in Disney's Oscar-nominated animated feature film, The Princess and the Frog), and Caroline D'Amore, of the D’Amore pizza family.

    Hollywood Sentinel, who was also in attendance stated that "It was really an outstanding event. Numerous guests walked up to fashion designer Sima Azadegan and commended her on what they said was her beautiful and perfectly tailored attire. One young woman, an aspiring fashion designer, was eager to get advice from the A-list designer. Sima was as kind and gracious as ever, even offering to give free coaching to the young artist." Sima will be sharing more of her fashion advice with the public at the end of this month of August on a podcast which will be found at Hollywood Sentinel dot com. Both influencers will also appear in the online magazine later this summer.
