SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 4, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Goodwin Publishing, LLC announced today the release of its new audio and e-book, “Teaching English Abroad: A Financial Prayer Answered” (ISBN: 987-1-937860-20-2), by Jonathan Goodwin.

This e-book and audio book is written for anyone who wants to explore the world while making money. It’s ideal for people who are about to graduate; are recent graduates; or for those seeking a career change. All that is needed is a B.A. or B.S. degree.

“Teaching English Abroad” is the perfect gift for a recent graduate or someone about to graduate.

“It’s unfortunate, but the current job market in the U.S. and Europe is grim. As a result, many graduates are finding that they have to move in with their parents or take jobs out of their field that pay less – what many consider ‘underemployed,’” explains Goodwin. “Teaching abroad is the ideal alternative – people save money while exploring the world. It’s an ideal situation.”

Many view this to be the bible of teaching English in South Korea.

“It’s written for anyone who wants to take control of their career and life. I did it and I’m anxious to share what I learned with others. It’s a combination of self-help and how-to rolled into one,” adds Goodwin.

“Teaching English Abroad” will show people how to step away from a 40-hour work week and to expand their horizons while helping others. It’s chock full of budget tables and tracks to show people how they can save a little or a lot.

The book is comprised of 10 chapters: My Early Mistakes; A Visit to Korea Rising from the Ashes; Facets of My Life in Korea; Being an Educator; The Savings Mantra; More on Budgeting; Newcomers Ahoy; On the Basics of Learning and Teaching; Traveling in Korea; and Why Do you Need a Financial Education?

These chapters are filled with practical and proven tips that include general financial advice, teaching tips, traveler tips and more. The book will also alleviate any anxieties that people may have about teaching in South Korea.

Readers will learn how to find and apply for the trustworthy private and public schools that are currently hiring English teachers in South Korea. Foolproof tips likely lead to hiring.

And, readers who decide to pursue this career opportunity will get the experience of teaching; have free time to enjoy the country and live a stress-free and adventurous life; and have freedom to explore and live on their own. Basically, teachers who work in South Korea are getting paid to travel the world and to see some of the most exotic locations out there while still making enough money to pay off debt and live comfortably.

The first two chapters of “Teaching English Abroad: A Financial Prayer Answered” are free to download. If readers want more, they can simply name their price at:
or they can order the e-book and audio book combination for a flat fee of $19.95.

About the Author:
Jonathan A. Goodwin is a graduate of San Diego University. He taught in South Korea for three years.

Conspiracy Productions announces 2nd edition to the Black Man Hates Obama Series


PHOENIX, Ariz., April 2, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Author RAINMAN announces the release of his new book, “Black Man Hates Obama: OUTRAGED 2.0″ (ISBN: 978-1-4507-9302-5; paperback, 269 pp; RainMan SEZ, LLC).

According to the “RAINMAN,” the book’s controversial author: “The Fantasy: Barack Hussein Obama. Hailed God Of All Things, Savior of The World, The One, The Cure to all of the ills of the world, The Equalizer of Economic Disparity, a Modern Day Robin Hood, God in the flesh, ‘Possessor of a tongue dipped in the unvarnished truth,’ Mr. Fix-It.”

However, says the author in his book, “The Reality: Barack Hussein Obama. Peter Principle. A failure, a weak leader; perhaps a traitor, a pathological liar, a race-baiter; some say a Muslim empathizer, a Black Nationalist, a divider, a Constitution breaker, a lover of terrorists, Esau’s Hamitic Zionist Puppet, King of Governmental Expropriations, killer of the true Israelites through his billion dollar donations to the International Planned Parenthood Eugenics Program, and facilitator of implacable legislations designed to entrench us in the mire of the madness of their agenda – Total World Domination. Who is Barack Obama, Really? I believe he is an unconscionable predator.”

America is in deep trouble. We reached our Rubicon once we unwittingly surrendered our sovereign status as Nationals to the foreign corporation, the U.S.A., Inc. through adhesion contracts and reception of its benefits; and we became transmitting utilities for our Straw Man to conduct Uniform Commercial Code transactions in their unlawful and illegal world Matrix.”

How long will we continue to ignore the plagues that have rocked society? Will we persist in playing the evil and insane game of the elite, ‘The Fourteenth Amendment Slaves Who Believe They Are Free’; or will we rise up to take back the liberty we were given by our Creator, to be free, private, independent, sovereign flesh and blood men and women before it’s too late?”

Decisions we make in regards to leadership in 2012 will make us, or it will break us. Are we so morally broken as a society, that, as the Declaration of Independence claims, ‘mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed?’

The question is, after a long train of abuses and usurpations will we finally assume our right, our duty, to throw off such government, provide new guards for our future security, and institute new government?”

The book is available on now. For more information visit: .

Adoptions of Textbook ‘Construction Project Management – a Managerial Approach’ Accelerate for Construction Management, Architecture and Real Estate College Programs


Pareto Building ImprovementCHICAGO, Ill., March 27, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “Construction Project Management – a Managerial Approach” (ISBN: 978-0-9799969-1-7) sales by Pareto Publishing have increased 400 percent each semester since publication in December 2010. This text uniquely provides the integration of construction management, project management and business management to enable a quantum leap in construction project quality, productivity and cost control-producing a competitive advantage essential in the now challenging United States construction market.

Demanding building owners in the United States manufacturing, power production, and energy distribution sectors have learned that simply soliciting multiple bids is no longer enough to achieve the results they seek, A paradigm shift to integrated project delivery employing more rigorous project management methodologies is needed. And all construction sectors in some areas outside the United States, particularly the Middle East, demand this improved project management capability and require the PMP (Project Management Professional) certification credential for new employees.

In the United States, the federal government GSA (General Services Administration) agency also makes the PMP credential preferred for new construction related employees – which can make it a de facto requirement in a competitive employment environment. This text is the first to integrate the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK(R) methodology, on which the PMP credential is based, into construction management to provide these now essential skills.

This text, authored by 40-year construction veteran JF McCarthy MBA CFM PMP, provides real world perspectives and skills to make the graduating students work ready-to win their first job and excel throughout their career. And it provides exactly the skills that the power generation and transmission constructions sectors, which have already rebounded and are now aggressively hiring, increasingly demand.

University adoptions and presales sales for the summer and fall of 2012 will continue the present text sales increase. With these continued increases “Construction Project Management – A Managerial Approach” will achieve a dominant share of the construction management academic market within 2-3 years. Winning the Axion Business Book, Indie Next Generation, and International Best Book Awards, it has also become popular with construction industry practitioners and is now in library collections worldwide.

Remembering Flopsy Parker, the $7.50 Rabbit That Tried to Change the World for Real Easter Bunnies


Baskets for Bunnies, Inc.WASHINGTON, D.C., March 12, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “The Easter Bunny That Grew Up” (ISBN: 978-1-4685-5496-0) is a children’s book that pays tribute to a little rabbit that captured the hearts of people around the world on Facebook and the contributions he made to rabbits in rescues and shelters. On September 26th, 2010 Gretta Parker started a journey she was not planning on when she adopted a little white rabbit for $7.50 from a local shelter.

On a whim she made him a Facebook page where she could talk about adopting rabbits and rabbit care. She posted adoption ads and wrote about how Flopsy loved to flip things. She started making adoption awareness posters using his image. People began to share them and his page. Gretta told her family and friends that he was going to be the $7.50 rabbit that changed the world for all rabbits.

By 2011, Flopsy Parker had become a household name for his humor, his message of adoption and his honesty about how much care rabbits need. He was even quoted by the Wall Street Journal when he was outraged over the Royal Shakespeare Company using real dead rabbits in their stage productions.

Gretta taught herself how to make designs with his images and started a store on Cafepress using Flopsy’s image and her designs that sent the message that shelter bunnies are the best kind. She donated the proceeds to a different rabbit rescue each month. In the summer of 2011, Gretta pooled all her savings to start Baskets for Bunnies, Inc. a 501(c) non-profit that sends supplies to rabbit rescues on a monthly basis. Flopsy was of course the “spokesbunny.”

Flopsy not only inspired her to do more but he had become her teacher to the issues that rabbits face. The truth is rabbits are the third most abandoned animal in the United States but they do not get the funding or protection they need due to agricultural laws that govern them. She set her sights to changing this. By fall 2011, she started making plans to get funding for a nationwide spay and neuter program for rabbits.

In December 2011, with the help of a rabbit toy company called Pet Rabbit Toys she started Toys for Hops; a program to raise toys to send to rabbits in rescues in shelters. In less than 16 days, with the support of all of Flopsy’s Facebook fans they raised 2,000 toys that went to rescues and shelters all over the United States by Christmas.

On the evening of December 28th Flopsy Parker passed away suddenly from a congenital kidney defect. His Facebook page got so many posts that it shut his timeline down in less than 24 hours. People posting how he had influenced them to adopt, or how he made them laugh. His mother received letters from all over the world, all people who had been touched by a $7.50 rabbit that another family had chosen to give up. Gretta had been right he had started to change the world for rabbits.

To cope with her grief, Gretta Parker wrote a book called “The Easter Bunny That Grew Up” as a tribute to his short but big life. She decided that death would not be the end of their journey together but the beginning of a new one. Flopsy would always be her partner, son, best friend and continue to lead her to fight for the rights of rabbits. The book teaches about researching an animal’s care needs before buying, supporting rabbit rescues, and that sometimes the greatest treasures are the ones other people discard.

His mother plans to use the proceeds from the book to continue the work of Baskets for Bunnies, Inc. and to build a sanctuary in Flopsy’s name. The Flopsy Parker Memorial Sanctuary will house rabbits with behavioral or health issues and elderly rabbits. It will truly be the sanctuary that a mother’s love built.

Powerful New Book by Best-Selling Author Reveals the Secret Message Hidden within the Virgin Mary’s Life


Sherrie DillardDURHAM, N.C., March 1, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “The Miracle Workers Handbook: Seven Levels of Power and Manifestation of the Virgin Mary” (ISBN: 978-1846949203) by Sherrie Dillard, and published by John Hunt Publishing O Books, explains the seven phases of Mary’s life as a blueprint for all people to experience divine intuitive communication, synchronicity, grace, miracles and ascension.

Author Sherrie Dillard, a professional intuitive and medium, is no stranger to religion. Her mother and one of her brothers are Methodist ministers and her other brother is a Catholic theologian and head of the religion department at a Catholic University. Through her unique perspective as an intuitive and medium, Sherrie presents a groundbreaking viewpoint of the Virgin Mary. Mary, she explains, is a saint for all people. Christians, Buddhists, pagans, Muslims and spiritual seekers alike find common ground is this new revelation of Mary.

After recounting some of her often funny early intuitive experiences and her encounters with Mary, Sherrie discusses what she believes to be Mary’s true message. Living in a strict Jewish community where woman were considered second class citizens, Mary shifted the prevailing concept of God as a judging, moralistic and male outer force to that of an inner spiritual presence. When she invoked the power of the heavens and miraculously conceived, Mary created a new paradigm. God became the divine loving spirit of grace and miracles that can be found within. The miraculous conception was not a one-time only event. All people, Sherrie affirms, have the innate ability to intuitively communicate with angels, experience synchronicity, live in grace and co-create miracles.

Of the Miracle Workers Handbook, Margaret L. Starbird, author of “The Feminine Face of Christianity” and “The Woman with the Alabaster Jar,” writes: “Sherrie Dillard’s new book presents spiritual truths to bless today’s pilgrims learning to trust the spiritual guidance of intuition and synchronicity. Stories she shares about the miraculous are illustrations of a clear connection to the ‘Way’ of radical trust in the ‘Divine Presence’ in every facet of our human experience.”

Joanna Macy Ph.D., author of “World As Lover, World As Self,” says: “Everything that Sherrie Dillard writes has the ring of authenticity that comes with great beauty and spiritual depth.”

Sherrie is the author of the best-selling “Discover Your Psychic Type” (Llewellyn Worldwide, 2008) of which Business Reed Information said: “Lifelong psychic Dillard (intuition development, Duke Univ.) offers up a genuinely satisfying work on developing psychic abilities well beyond the typical if-I-can-do-it, you-can-too!”

Her book “Love and Intuition” (Llewellyn Worldwide, 2010) explores how to develop intuition in one of the most spiritual aspects of life: love and relationships. wrote “The book that can turn your love life around,” and Suite 101 wrote, “This book is a keeper!”

As an intuitive and medium, Sherrie has a busy international clientele. Her writing has appeared in national magazines and she has been featured on radio and television for her innovative books and her work as a psychic detective and medium. She has taught intuition development classes at Duke University, Miraval Resort and in Latin America and Europe. Her passion for the fusion of intuition, spirituality and conscious self-growth has made her a popular speaker and teacher at retreats and conferences both nationally and internationally. Sherrie holds a B.S. in Psychology and M.Div. in New Thought pastoral counseling.
