Meet the Specialist- Dean Heller, MD

As PeKu Publications grew, so did our team of writers.  With a hearty team of writers who excel at researching and writing, we were publishing a wide variety of articles weekly.  To deepen our knowledge base, we decided to seek specialists that would be authorities, as opposed to researchers, in their area of knowledge.  The first specialist that we added was Dean Heller, who is author of our weekly Ask the Doctor column on Health Eagle.  Dr. Heller has been a contributor to Health Eagle since March 2010.

Without further ado, allow me to introduce Dean

Two Words

For many of us living in America, this Thursday we will celebrate Thanksgiving.  With the word thanks in the holiday's name, it's hard not to take a second or two to consider all of the people and things for which we are grateful.  Whether it is a private moment of contemplation or a group discussion, most people will find the time to consider their gratitude.

However, I have to consider why we don't do this more often.  Although I try to express my gratitude on a daily basis for things little and big, I know that I often

Cold Season Returns

Sure, it has been fall since the third week of September, but the progression into lower temperatures and shorter days is gradual.  However, with the time change a week ago and a recent spell of sub-freezing temperatures, it is quite apparent that winter is knocking at our door.  Of course, beyond the meteorological conditions, there are other indicators that winter is near: ads for ski swaps, holiday music in stores, the arrival of the first cold of the season.

Yes, not only is it the start of cold season (as in weather), it also the start of cold

Just Vote

I spent yesterday afternoon reading a memoir. Sitting in the living room I was surrounded by the sounds of an early afternoon NFL game that my teenaged son was watching. The noise of the game in the background, I happily devoured my book; the sounds of play calls and clashing helmets and pads merely filling the air like elevator music. However, when the game went to commercial, it was a completely different story. It seemed that the majority of the ads were political with one candidate bashing another.

Although the sounds of the political

Sometimes New Ideas Work. . .

And sometimes they don't.  In June of this year, we launched a new design for our music publication, Tunes News.  As part of the new design we decided to add a new section, Featured Artist.  Our plan was two-fold.  One, it would give a closer look at a band or artist, their albums, changes in the band, and more.  Two, we were hoping to generate more reader involvement by having them help to choose the artist or band.

For the first month, we chose the artist and asked our readers to suggest artists that we should review.

Meet the Team- Lori Sciame

Lori Sciame has been a part of the WMG team since January 2011.  She originally was hired as a member of the writing team.  In May of that year, the company had grown to a point where I was ready to implement a more formal editorial team.  With the creation of the new role of Associate Editor, Lori became the first hire for that position.  Since that time Lori has balanced a workload of editing and writing for many of our publications.

Allow me introduce you to Lori.
