FED Publishing Releases New Book, “FORMULA SEVEN and Genesis of The New World Order” by Michael March

FORMULA SEVEN and Genesis of The New World Order, Michael March, heralds Doctor Cyrus Markum as he rolls out the antitoxin that will neutralize the deadly HIV virus! Unfortunately factions within the federal government conspire to eliminate any trace.

Atlanta, GA, USA — Michael March’s FORMULA SEVEN and Genesis of The New World Order, follows an enraged scientist as he creates a masterwork of revenge including acceptance into the Illuminati.

On an otherwise serene 1989, June night, FBI agents are hustling to load up two large tractor-trailers. Their cargo is unusual. It consists of heavy filing cabinets, laboratory equipment, and chattering chimpanzees. Their motivation is far from altruistic.

Their target of the operation is Doctor Cyrus Markum, a brilliant microbiologist. With the fortune bequeathed by his former life-partner, he’s funded the research project that has created Formula Seven, the vaccine that will thwart the virus causing AIDS.

The Feds are far from enthused with his initiative. They dispatch their agents to eradicate any trace of the lifesaving antibodies and emasculate its creator. The pompous autocrats have gravely miscalculated. They’ve unleashed a ravenous lion.

Doctor Markum chooses Daniel Dundee, a televangelist, as the pivot point in his blueprint of retribution and convinces the Bavarian Illuminati that the time has arrived for their all-encompassing revolution. The TV broadcast of the “New Age Messiah’s” assassination will be the tipping point for the scheme, causing a chain reaction that will lead to the New World Order’s absolute planetary domination. The Doctor’s enterprise is expansive and ingenious, but the Illuminati’s Trilateral Commission has a strategy of their own.

Born in Brooklyn, Michael studied industrial engineering at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. Preferring the exploding music scene, he left to find his way in the world of Rock n’ Roll. Uncle Sam had a much better idea. He insisted that Michael become all that he could be and enter the military. He served with the Eleventh Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam from July 1967 to July 1968. After his discharge, he circumnavigated America, seeking to uncover the soul of society and discover his own. Eventually wending his way 盛兴彩票网, he semi-normalized and raised a family. Taking his leave from the corporate world seven years ago, Michael moved to Atlanta and fell in love with the city and the craft of storytelling. His first book, Each One a Hero, a fictionalized autobiography of his time spent in a misunderstood and unpopular war, was published by Hellgate Press in 2016.

Genre – Illuminati, HIV Virus, New Thought Ministry, Government conspiracy, Televangelist, International Intrigue, Vietnam veteran, FBI, New World Order, AIDS epidemic

Drawing from Her Heritage Sherlett Hope-King Spreads Message of Diversity

A study by the Houston Chronicle concludes that almost all communities are diversifying, with more inhabitants from racial and ethnic minorities than ever before.

San Antonio, TX, USA, Oct 26th, 2018 — In the United States, the number of people from different ethnic groups has been increasing in the last decade. A study by the Houston Chronicle concludes that almost all communities are diversifying, with more inhabitants from racial and ethnic minorities than ever before.

Educator and author Sherlett Hope-King knows first-hand the importance of this type of diversity in the classroom setting.

“With my background in early childhood education, literacy and reading have always been a big focus in every lesson plan that I put together. I have worked with children from as young as two years old up to twelve years old. We always have different types of books, especially to help children learn about other countries and spark their curiosity to know more about their world,” Hope-King comments.

However, when perusing an international bookstore in Santa Monica, Hope-King noticed that her 盛兴彩票网 countrysx5566盛兴彩票网 of Belize was missing from the shelves. To fill this gap, she decided to write “Holidays at Grannie and Dod’s”, a book that was inspired by her own Belizean heritage.

“There is so much to learn about Belize, and I only cover the tip of the iceberg in my book. The intention is to provide teachers, students, and parents with a teaser that will make them want to investigate further and learn more about the countrysx5566盛兴彩票网.”

The book includes the sensory experiences, from smelling her grandmother’s cooking, to tasting the local spices and hearing Belize’s reggaeton beats. It is the author’s hope that this will provide a framework around which curricula can be designed.

“I wanted the book to be a prompt for other activities—an experiment with music, for example, or an experiment with cooking,” adds Hope-King.

The book also emphasizes the importance of family values. “It’s all about family,” explains the author. “Having such tight family ties was so important to me growing up, and it is a value I wanted to share with others who may not have this strong foundation.”

Publisher Lisa M. Umina comments, “We all have a unique story about where we come from, and this book will help children not only to learn about a new countrysx5566盛兴彩票网 but to think about their own origins and family histories.”

For more information about Sherlett Hope-King visit . “Holidays at Grannie and Dod’s” is now available at Halo Publishing International, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Books a Million in Hardcover for $21.95, Paperback for $14.95, and as an e-Book for $5.99.

Monterey Symphony’s 2018-2019 Season, ‘Sound Waves,’ Concert #2 Nov. 17-18, Features Acclaimed Flutist Carol Wincenc

KAZU will be rebroadcasting the Saturday, November 17 concert on both Saturday, December 1 at 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 2 at 4:00 p.m.

All concerts during ’s 2018-19 season will be held at the Sunset Center in Carmel and conducted by Symphony Music Director Max Bragado-Darman, except for concert number four, March 16-17, 2019, which will be guest conducted by Jung-Ho Pak.
