— Terry Kovel

CLEVELAND, OHIO, US, September 30, 2021 / — The 54th edition of the perennially popular Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide by Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel is now available online at and at booksellers nationwide.

For more than five decades, casual and expert collectors have turned to the Kovels, the most trusted name in the industry, for their knowledge and research. The just-released 2022 price guide includes more than 3,000 photos; 500 makers’ marks, logos, and dates; and 12,500 all-new prices of antiques and collectibles in more than 700 categories sought-after by collectors, including Advertising, Furniture, Glass, Jewelry, Kitchen, Porcelain, Tiffany, Toys, Sewing, Tools, and more. Prices are from actual sales—no estimates—and are reviewed for accuracy.

Best of all, there’s an entirely new center section in Kovels’ 2022 book — “Collecting Trends: Twentieth-Century American Studio Jewelry” — showcasing designers of the new, bold, and modern “jewelry as art” that emerged in the late 1940s and ’50s.

All of this enables collectors to buy, sell, and collect with confidence.

Here is a peek at some of the fascinating listings in Kovels’ 2022 price guide: The most expensive item is a 7-gallon stoneware water cooler made in 1846 and decorated with Broadway street scene in cobalt blue that auctioned for $480,000. The least expensive entries, at $2 each, are a 1980s plastic figural Spider-Man bookmark and a Royal China “Country Charm” saucer. The largest item in the book is an early 20th century Flemish style tapestry picturing the Battle of Pavia. It is just over 17 by 9 feet and sold for $4,720. And there are a few listings that measure 1/2 inch — a set of Trianon 18-karat-gold cuff links with gemstones that sold for $610, a lot of five agate and Dzi bead buttons from c.1800 that sold together for $1,088, a pair of 18-karat-gold earrings with citrine stones that brought $480, and a pair of Victorian gold tone buttons with an eagle that went for $3.

Since then, collecting has become more popular and collectors have become savvier and better informed.

Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future,” is now available in South Africa thanks to a newly established partnership between Galaxy Press and Willow Trading SA, including Volume 36 now in stores.

With nearly four decades of developing new professional writers and cultivating new professional illustrators, the impact that the two Contests have had on the field is best summed up by The Midwest Book Review calling Writers of the Future “the gold standard of emerging talent into the field of science fiction fantasy that has contributed more to the genre than any other source.”

With Contest entrants from over 175 countries and winners from over 50, South Africa is in the ranks of countries contributing to that gold standard of emerging talent. Illustrators of the Future winner Stephen Spinas from Cape Town ( will be published in the upcoming L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 37, releasing November 2.

The Writers of the Future Writing Contest, now in its 38th year, was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard to provide “a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged.” Based on its success, its sister contest, Illustrators of the Future, was created five years later to provide that same opportunity for aspiring artists.

The over 500 past winners and published finalists of the Writing Contest have published over 1,800 novels and nearly 6,200 short stories. In addition, they have produced 33 New York Times bestsellers, and their works have sold over 60 million copies.

“DIA” Pronounced (Jah) takes the Reggae mastery of one of its foremost African ambassadors to a new level.

Forgiveness will make us heal”

— Meta & the Cornerstones



“DIA” Pronounced (Jah) takes the Reggae mastery of one of its foremost African ambassadors to a new level. It is beautifully crafted and full of passion for music and message, sounding pouncing riddims and sweet harmonies to Jah (Dia) rising sun. Yet, it is much more than just another excellent Reggae album. Meta Dia offers hidden pathways to social healing – or “salvation” – as Rastas, Sufis, and all other spiritual Reggae Aficionados may have it.

Beware, many of (DIA) tracks take you to the dark side of this time and planet – racism, poverty, war, destruction of the environment. But it does not leave you in the valley of rage and revenge. Meta leads his followers to the final destination, the valley of decision, where good wins over evil.

His lyrical rivers of wisdom are fed by many tributaries, the nomadic mystic traditions of his Fulani forebears, the Rastafari I-sights based on the teachings of Ras Tafari and the wise men of the East, so prominent in his beloved Senegal. Yes, Meta sues for justice. Not only for Africans from his mother continent, but for all the “wretched of the earth”. But his bottom line is in line with so many great minds: “Just like the breeze, forgiveness will make us heal.”

It comes at a crucial time with so many destructive “signs of the time”: Wars and violence in the false name of religions or cultures, separating the one human race into ever-more fierce adversaries and foes, and selfish nations anything but united.

Meta Dia hammers the walls of division to create space for his doctrine of “Peace, Love and Harmony” – against all odds. For him, this is not a safe space of fake consolation or unconditional reconciliation.

Quite to the contrary: this Reggae album is a yet another wake-up call to come together on a basis of equal rights and justice; for there is no other way of togetherness. With this fundamental mission Meta joins the ranks of the all-time Greats in Reggae. Who could be more predestined for this “mission impossible” than a Muslim Fulani Dread, full of Rasta vibes. Here comes trouble for the warmongers. With a superb package filled with the finest sounds and ideas from Dakar to Jamaica to New York and the rest of the globe.

Civil Air Patrol Squadron Plans Open House

CAP 80th Anniversary

Youth Leadership programs in Fresno

MADERA, CA, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2021 / — Civil Air Patrol Squadron Plans Open House
Fresno, CA, Squadron 112

The Fresno Civil Air Patrol Squadron 112, a local unit of Civil Air Patrol, is hosting an open house at 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM, September 30, 2021, at 3585 N. Blythe Avenue, Fresno, CA 93722, located at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Building.

According to COL Neil Kuykendall, squadron commander, the entire community is welcome to attend and learn more about CAP.

Members of the squadron will be present to greet visitors and explain CAP’s missions for America. Squadron 112 is celebrating Civil Air Patrol week Nov.28–Dec. 4. The open house is part of the 80th anniversary observance designed to create a greater awareness of CAP’s presence and contributions in the community.

The origins of Civil Air Patrol’s story began in 1936, when Gill Robb Wilson, World War I aviator and New Jersey director of aeronautics, returned from Germany convinced of impending war. Wilson envisioned mobilizing America’s civilian aviators for national defense. The proposal for a Civil Air Patrol was approved by the Commerce,Navy and War departments, and CAP was founded Dec. 1.

In January 1942, Germany U-boats started attacking the U.S. shipping lanes along the East Coast. By June, enemy attacks destroyed nearly 400 merchant vessels and oil tankers off the Atlantic coastline, often within sight of its shores. Civil Air Patrol was called into action by a short-handed military. Using privately owned airplanes armed with light bombs, civilian volunteers became the eyes of the home skies, flying a total of 244,600 hours patrolling and safeguarding the Atlantic and Gulf coastlines, aiding the safe movement of war materiel to the battlefields of Europe and the Pacific.

Today’s Civil Air Patrol may look different, but its core remains the same. It continues to support America’s communities with emergency response, diverse aviation and ground services, youth development and promotion of air, space and cyber power.

Zulip’s Developer Community Graduates 5th Successful Year of Google Summer of Code 2021 Internship Program


Zulip’s developer community dedicates thousands of hours to open source mentorship, and Zulip’s 18 summer students contribute over 1500 commits to the project

It has been the best summer I've ever had! I'm thankful to my mentors, Zulip, and Google for providing me an opportunity of getting involved in the community!”

— Sarthak Garg, Zulip GSoC 2021 student participant

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2021 / — Zulip, the threaded open source team chat app with the most active open-source community of any team chat software, today announced it has successfully completed its 5th consecutive year taking part in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program, graduating 18 student participants this summer. This year’s students wrote an impressive 1500 commits that are now incorporated into Zulip’s codebase, including Zulip's web app, Zulip’s mobile app, server and API. Zulip is currently welcoming students to join its next internship program run through Outreachy.

“It has been the best summer I've ever had! I'm thankful to my mentors, my peers, Zulip, and Google for providing me an opportunity of getting involved in the community! You have helped and supported me to become a better software developer and a passionate open-source contributor,” said Sarthak Garg, Zulip GSoC 2021 student participant.

Zulip fosters a welcoming community for students from a wide range of backgrounds by making it seamless to jump right into their open source culture. Zulip has invested in an extraordinary 150K words of documentation on how to contribute to Zulip, with topics ranging from practical Git tips to essays on important architectural decisions. Further, Zulip’s code is uniquely readable, well tested, and easy to modify. Anyone is welcome to jump in and contribute to Zulip’s open source project. This is why the students in Zulip’s 2021 cohort were able to contribute major improvements to the Zulip product.

“The last couple of months were really amazing; I gained massive experience as developer. I saw firsthand how an open source community builds a project by keeping everyone's suggestions in mind,” said Aryan Shridhar, Zulip GSoC 2021 student participant.

“The Zulip community is really helpful for anyone stuck at any phase of development. I learned how to write clean and maintainable code, the art of breaking huge changes into commits that are easy updates based on reviews, and also about tackling big issues,” said Purushottam Tiwari, Zulip GSoC 2021 student participant.

“Zulip has always had a deep commitment to bringing up the next generation, including mentoring over 100 university interns over the last 5 years through Google Summer of Code, Outreachy, and our own internship programs,” said Zulip’s Project Leader, Tim Abbott. “We are incredibly grateful to all the community members who stepped up to mentor students this summer. Many of the participants have told us that they learned more contributing to Zulip than in their 4-year formal computer science education.”

Many modern “open-source” companies offer an intentionally crippled “open-source” version as a demo for their non-open-source paid product. In contrast, Zulip is 100% open source software. Customers that require full control over their data can easily run a self-hosted Zulip installation, which is why thousands of organizations do so today.

To learn more about Zulip and Zulip’s internship programs, check out our blog post detailing the most recent summer program. Connect with Zulip on Twitter and LinkedIn.

On The Island With Charles Darwin

Darwin’s pilgrimage to the Galápagos Islands gives birth to the popular Theory of Natural Selection.

PITTSBURG, CA, USA, September 30, 2021 / — A fictionalized recounting of Charles Darwin’s voyage on the Galápagos Island through the lens of an experienced science educator.

“While clearly stating that this is a work of fiction and imagination, ten Brink provides ample evidence that she has researched the setting, the methodology used by Darwin, and the journaling that led to his seminal work, The Origin of Species.”—The US Review of Books.

Perhaps the most intriguing and groundbreaking theory was penned after Charles Darwin’s unforgettable voyage in the Galápagos Islands. Dr. Barbara ten Brink’s On The Island with Charles Darwin is a noteworthy work of fiction centered around the plausible events and scenarios around the time Darwin visited the Galápagos Archipelago. Darwin’s pilgrimage to the Galápagos Islands gives birth to the popular Theory of Natural Selection, which drastically and controversially alters the scientific view on the origins of life.

While we know lots and lots about the life and work of Charles Darwin through preserved documents, notebooks, publications, letters, correspondence, and the membership in The Royal Society that were widely imparted into various areas of learnings and research, we know nothing about the fictional characters that Dr. ten Brink has created around him. Though the characters, names, and events included in the book are entirely fictional, they are without a doubt authentic, backed with the author’s research about the notable visit.

Dr. ten Brink researched many topics to build a realistic setting and events around the time when Darwin was carefully making observations in the Archipelago for his manuscript, On The Origin of Species (1859).

“It was also my great privilege to travel to Galápagos to visit the islands of Isla de San Cristobál and Isla Isabela, and experience for myself the entrepreneurial spirit of young naturalists who hire out their boats to take tourists on excursions to witness seals and sea lions, boobies, sharks, marine iguanas, and penguins.” —Dr. Barbara ten Brink.

Rather than traveling by cruise ship, Dr. ten Brink rented the pleasing Villa Rosa. Villa Rosa was once the cucumber warehouse and counting house mentioned throughout the story.

On The Island with Charles Darwin by Dr. Barbara ten Brink will be exhibited at the 2021 American Association of School Librarians (AASL) National Conference.

Disfuncția intestinală neurogenă poate fi tratată cu succes, pentru ca persoanele care trăiesc cu această condiție de sănătate să aibă o calitate a vieții crescută. Participarea la webinar e gratuită.”

— Dr. Marcalee Alexander

BIRMINGHAM, AL, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2021 / — Disfuncția intestinală neurogenă afectează milioane de persoane din întreaga lume. Afecțiunile neurologice precum leziunile medulare, scleroza multiplă, Parkinson, accidentele vasculare ș.a. se manifestă adesea și prin complicații precum incontinența sau constipația, simptome care pot să aiba un impact semnificativ asupra calității vieții persoanelor și asupra capacității lor de a lucra. Disfuncția intestinală neurogenă poate, de asemenea, să creeze dificultăți pentru întreaga familie a unei persoane afectate, atunci când aceasta are nevoie de ajutorul unui asistent pentru a curăța sau sau când persoana afectată nu poate ieși din casă. În ciuda acestor dificultăți, există modalități prin care disfuncția intestinală neurogenă poate fi tratată, astfel încât persoanele care trăiesc cu această condiție de sănătate să aibă o calitate a vieții crescută.

Scopul acțiunii este să aducă în discuție diferite opțiuni pentru gestionarea afectărilor intestinale și să contribuie la creșterea capacității persoanelor cu disfuncții intestinale neurogene și a profesioniștilor din domeniu de a colabora, pentru a găsi împreună soluții și a spori calitatea vieții persoanelor afectate. Se va acorda o atenție deosebită tranziției eficiente a persoanei de la centrul de recuperare acasă, pentru o îngrijire corespunzătoare.

Gazdele seminarului vor fi Dr. Antonis Kontaxakis din Grecia și Dr. Gianluca Sampogna, din Italia, iar prezentările vor fi susținute de Kim Chamberlain (SUA), Dr. Osvaldo Chiara (Italia), Dr. Lance Goetz (SUA), Angel Garcia Fernandez (Argentina), Prof. Dr. Claus Hultling (Suedia), Prof. Dr. Klaus Krogh (Danemarca), As. Med. Erikael Nade (Tanzania), Shivjeet Raghav (India), Dr. Michele Spinelli (Italia) și Dr. Marcalee Alexander – fondator SOA.

Evenimentele cu participare internațională, disponibile pentru oameni din întreaga lume, care promovează educația fără frontiere sunt definitorii pentru Sustain Our Abilities.

Local artist Kween Moore's design will transform reclaimed alley.

NEWARK, NJ, US, September 30, 2021 / — Keep America Beautiful and the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District are proud to announce the “Lincoln Park Gallery Without Walls” Alley Reclamation Mural Project. The “allery” features muralist Kween Moore’s “Black Girls Dream,” a powerful, regal homage to feminine divine energy. The bold, bright and colorful mural adorns 200 linear feet of treated wood fencing, with support from Keep America Beautiful.

"Keep America Beautiful-Newark is so happy to be behind this project and couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of this partnership that’s dramatically improving this public space in our city,” said Malkia King, Executive Director of Keep America Beautiful-Newark. "The bold, proud message Kween Moore's work sends will leave an impact on all people, and we are proud to combine that message with an environment that makes the area better for everyone."

The home of the “Lincoln Park Gallery Without Walls” is behind the historic New Ark Cathedral Church (known as La Vid Verdadera en La Catedral New Ark, Lincoln Park) and the Dryden Mansion, which was the primary home of John F. Dryden, the founder of Prudential Insurance Company and United States Senator from New Jersey. The alleyway sits in the middle of Lincoln Park’s “Little Five Points,” a convergence of Lincoln Park Place, Crawford Street, South Halsey Street, Bleecker Street, and Washington Street. Prior to the opening of The Willows at Symphony Hall, “Little Five Points” was a dimly lit, desolate strip with little residential foot traffic. The area was on the rise until the closure of cWOW (City Without Walls) Gallery, and then the global pandemic struck. The mandatory lockdowns and no foot traffic outside gave way to an uptick in “COVID crime.”

Locally, Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District has been working closely with the City of Newark’s “Love Your Block” program to take back the alley and turn it into a usable space named after the community it will serve – the “Lincoln Park Gallery Without Walls.” The “Lincoln Park Gallery Without Walls” sits diagonally from the defunct cWOW Gallery which was New Jersey's oldest not-for-profit alternative art space. “Lincoln Park Gallery Without Walls” pays homage to cWOW Gallery and is inspired by the “allery” movement (turning alleyways into outdoor gallery spaces). Some of these include The Belt in Detroit, Chicago’s ACTIVATE series and, closer to home, down neck in the Ironbound, The Newark Allery, which revitalized alleys with public art, beautified the neighborhood, and uplifted the community.

“It is truly an honor to see my work win on so many levels. This work belongs to my grandmother, my mother, all of my aunts and sisters who've come before me,” said winning muralist, Kween Moore. Thank you Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District, Keep America Beautiful and all project supporters and partners for creating space for Black and brown girl artists like me. “Black Girls Dream” is the celebration of our women, who we are in the world and, most importantly, how we see ourselves in light. We are bold and live in color. We love when we should and even when we lack luster. We move in waves and hues of color, popping out all over the world. Us Black girls are loud, we cry, scream and share stories."

LPCCD’s Executive Director Anthony Smith states: “As a community development organization, we understand that creative placemaking is a bottom-up approach. The role and contribution of the arts is invaluable in this bottom-up approach, as it represents the opportunity for the disenfranchised members of our community to contribute. Through donated cleaning equipment, art supplies, and volunteers from Keep America Beautiful, we were able to activate our residents to participate in reclaiming the alley for the community’s usage.”

The “Lincoln Park Gallery Without Walls” project was produced by Kim J. Ford, Founder, BRND Marketing Group LLC (official lead agency for LPCCD) and Armisey Smith, Artistic Project Manager.

The “Lincoln Park Gallery Without Walls” will open with a ribbon-cutting and brief program on Saturday, October 2, 2021. Media call is 11:30AM and the Opening Program is 12PM-1PM. Additional viewing will be during the city-wide Newark Arts Festival on Saturday, October 9 between 2PM-5PM. Location GPS: 6 Crawford Street, Newark, NJ, walk ½ block to Halsey Street between Beecher and Lincoln Park, behind the New Ark Cathedral Church.

Additional support by:
City of Newark, Back Together Again, Love Your Block, Love Tito's, Tito's Vodka, Crawford Street Partners, and Newark Arts
