Herbie J Pilato chronicles classic TV's top male and female icons in twin books: Glamour, Gidgets and the Girl Next Door, and Dashing, Daring and Debonair

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The darling Donna Douglas who with both gusto and grace played Elly May Clampett, the diamond in the rough on "The Beverly Hillbillies"…The barrier-and race-breaking performance of the distinguished Diahann Carroll as "Julia" in the same-named, first-African-American-led sitcom in TV history…The smart and sassy magic of Barbara Eden on "I Dream of Jeannie"…Lynda Carter ("Wonder Woman")…Dawn Wells ("Gilligan’s Island")…Farrah Fawcett ("Charlie’s Angels")…Suzanne Somers ("Three’s Company")…Sally Field ("Gidget"/"The Flying Nun"), Lindsay Wagner ("The Bionic Woman"), Maureen McCormick ("The Brady Bunch"), Julie Newmar ("Batman")…each of them and more are probed, prodded and paid tribute to GLAMOUR, GIDGETS, AND THE GIRL NEXT DOOR: TELEVISION’S ICONIC WOMEN OF THE ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s, which is filled with insightful, entertaining and revealing biographies.

As the author of female-geared classic television biographies like Mary: The Mary Tyler Moore Story, and Twitch Upon A Star: The Bewitched Life and Career of Elizabeth Montgomery, with the GIDGETS book, Herbie J Pilato chronicles as many charismatic women who have made their ‘beauty-mark’ in television. Pilato celebrates their contributions beyond aesthetic appeal and more to honor the intelligence, individual wit, and unique talent and style that each of them have contributed to television — and how that great medium in particular was utilized to introduce and showcase so many amazing and wonderful women to the world.

For exclusive and key information on TV’s top leading ladies who shattered expectations and paved the way for successive generations, GLAMOUR, GIDGETS, AND THE GIRL NEXT DOOR is the number one resource and go-to guide.

Conversely, and as a companion to the GIDGETS tome, Pilato penned DASHING, DARING, AND DEBONAIR: TV’S TOP MALE ICONS FROM THE ’50s, ’60s AND ’70s.

With a Foreword by Adam West ("Batman"), and Joel Eisenberg ("The Chronicles of Ara"), DASHING, DARING, AND DEBONAIR discusses the lives and careers of classic television’s legendary personalities from in-front-of and behind-the-camera including: Ed Asner ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show"), Tony Dow ("Leave it to Beaver"), Norman Lear ("All in the Family"), Andy Griffith ("The Andy Griffith Show"), Stanley Livingston ("My Three Sons"), David Carradine and Radames Pera ("Kung Fu"), Larry Hagman ("I Dream of Jeannie"/"Dallas"), Paul Peterson ('The Donna Reed Show"), David Cassidy ("The Partridge Family"), Barry Williams ("The Brady Bunch"), John Schneider and Tom Wopat ("The Dukes of Hazzard"), Dick Van Dyke ("The Dick Van Dyke Show"), Robert Wagner ("It Takes a Thief"), Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox ("CHiPs"), Leonard Nimoy, Gene Roddenberry and William Shatner ("Star Trek"), and more.

Be they actors, comedians, singers, dancers, talk show hosts or series creators or producers, they each ignited their own particular brand of appeal and, in the process, inspired their audience to cheer them on — whatever their guise. This book explores and celebrates the men who left an indelible impression on generations.

In either case, any fan or follower of classic television or pop-culture history will find much to enjoy in GLAMOUR, GIDGETS, AND THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, and DASHING, DARING, AND DEBONAIR.

He’s clearly in love with the business and the actresses in it and it’s a fun read to zip through. This isn’t one of those tell-all books, revealing private secrets that should’ve stayed untold — this is a positive, fact-filled celebration of the women he writes about.”

Animal Wellness Action Celebrates China’s New Policy Banning the Dog Meat Trade

Dog Meat

Animal Wellness Brands Logo

Policy Action Triggered by the Inescapable Conclusion Most People Treat Dogs as Companions, Growing Public Health & Reputational Concerns, & the COVID-19 Crisis

The dog meat trade in China and other nations has triggered investigations, protest, and outrage even within nations where this industry operates.”

— Wayne Pacelle, President of Animal Wellness Action

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In what can only be described as one of the biggest contemporary gains for animals globally, China has removed dogs from its National Catalogue of Livestock and Poultry, clearing the way for the shutdown of dog meat sales, including dog meat festivals such as the infamous one conducted in Yulin. Dogs in China have long been raised and collected by the millions annually and butchered for human consumption, and this new policy is a prescription for ending the entire trade. Only a minority of Chinese consume dog meat, and the younger generation by and large steers clear of it.

The proposed national policy was elucidated in April, just months after the COVID-19 crisis started in Wuhan. “With the progress of human civilization and the public’s concern and preference for animal protection, dogs have been ‘specialized’ from traditional domestic animals to companion animals,” wrote a spokesperson from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs in April in the original expression of the proposed policy change.”

“The dog meat trade in China and other nations has triggered investigations, protest, and outrage even within nations where this industry operates,” noted Wayne Pacelle, President of Animal Wellness Action. “As pet keeping continued to rise and became the dominant form of interacting with dogs, the dog meat industry was a contradictory behavior that could endure for long. The COVID-19 was a catalyst for the evolution in social thinking about dogs.

Animals Asia, which has been on the ground in China fighting for animals for over 30 years, sent this dispatch to Animal Wellness Action: “Although the legislation is not an outright ban on consumption, the regulation bans the selling of live dogs and dog meat for food. This means all the dog restaurants, markets and slaughterhouses countrywide selling dogs for food are now illegal, sending a message to the industry that dog meat consumption is not supported by the government. The protection also extends to cats.”

The decision follows actions earlier this year by the cities of Shenzhen and Zhuhai to ban the eating of dogs and cats. It also comes more than a year after the United States banned the trade domestically, partly as a signal of moral leadership sent to China. AWA helped lead the fight to pass that law in Congress.

“We expect this decision to end the horrific treatment of millions of dogs who are terrorized, slaughtered, and skinned as part of the meat trade in China each year,” said Jennifer Skiff, Director of International Programs for Animal Wellness Action. “But be assured, the battle is far from over. The ability to enforce is always an issue once a law is created – and that’s not China specific. Still, this action is far-reaching and those who follow the law will walk away from the trade and their action will create monumental change.”

Skiff, who last year spoke to animal advocates in Beijing about the trade and the global movement to end it, said, “Today is a day to rejoice for the good people of China who have been desperate to see this change. Sadly, investigative reports by Animals Asia have shown that the majority of dogs in the trade are stolen companion animals. This is just the beginning of the end of the trade.”

“The COVID-19 crisis exposed live animal markets as barbaric and as serious threats to public health, and the government of China acted responsibility by ordering its closure,” said Odessa Gunn, Northern California Director for Animal Wellness Action and an investigator who been to dozens of dog meat markets in China and told the story of the callous and horrifying treatment of the animals. “It’s a celebratory moment for the people of China and for people throughout the world and with the possible shutdown of live wildlife sales for food, it heralds a new era in the treatment of animals in China.”

Dogs are still farmed in South Korea and eaten in other Southeast Asian countries. It’s hoped China’s decision will be followed by its neighbors, whose authorities sanction the farming and tolerate theft of pets and collection of animals for the trade. The stories of those dogs, along with the photos of them stuffed into wire cages, and on trucks heading to China have fueled the global movement that can claim part of this week’s decision by China to stop the sale of dogs for food.

Animal Wellness Action ushered to passage the Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act that was signed into law in December 2018 forbidding the dog and cat meat trade in the United States.

The Animal Wellness Foundation (Foundation) is a Los Angeles-based private charitable organization with a mission of helping animals by making veterinary care available to everyone with a pet, regardless of economic ability. We organize rescue efforts and medical services for dogs and cats in need and help homeless pets find a loving caregiver. We are advocates for getting veterinarians to the front lines of the animal welfare movement; promoting responsible pet ownership; and vaccinating animals against infectious diseases such as distemper. We also support policies that prevent animal cruelty and that alleviate suffering. We believe helping animals helps us all.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

Made by future general Richard Butler while an armorer at Ft. Pitt (1765-1770), signed tomahawk was carried to battle by Lt. John McClellan of Pa. Riflemen

Because of its historical importance and incomparable line of previous ownership, there was great interest in the tomahawk in the days leading up to the auction. The bidding opened at $240,000.”

— Dan Morphy, Founder and President of Morphy Auctions

DENVER, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A circa 1765-1770 Revolutionary War presentation pipe tomahawk made by future army general Richard Butler and inscribed to Lieutenant John McClellan of the Pennsylvania Riflemen was sold on May 27 by Morphy Auctions in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for a staggering $664,200, inclusive of buyer’s premium. It is a world-record auction price for any tomahawk.

“Because of its historical importance and incomparable line of previous ownership, there was great interest in the tomahawk in the days leading up to the auction. We knew ahead of time that a couple of serious players would be competing for it,” said Morphy Auctions founder and president Dan Morphy. “There were six phone lines in use when the bidding opened at $240,000. It quickly escalated and was sold to an American buyer.”

Arguably the most important and best-known American tomahawk in existence, it was featured in the 2005 "Clash of Empires: The British, French & Indian War, 1754-1763" an exhibition of French and Indian War items commemorating the 250th anniversary of the conflict. Exhibition stops included the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh, the Canadian War Museum/Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, and The Smithsonian in Washington, DC.

Displaying extremely fine workmanship, the silver-mounted and inlaid tomahawk was hand-forged and signed by Richard Butler, a respected armorer at Fort Pitt (Pa.) from 1765-1770. Butler's daybook, which is held in Carnegie Library, gives a record of his time at Fort Pitt and lists the many pipe tomahawks he made.

Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1743, Butler moved with his family to Lancaster, Pa., at age five. Around 1760, the Butlers relocated to the nearby developing settlement of Carlisle, where his father worked as a gunsmith. The younger Butler apprenticed under his father at the gun shop, which still stands near the city’s Court Square.

In 1772, following his time at Fort Pitt, Butler was commissioned a captain in the Pennsylvania Militia. Over time, he gained the trust of Native Americans in the region and, in partnership with his brother, conducted fur trading with the tribes and also provided gunsmithing services. In 1775, Butler left the Pennsylvania Militia and became an agent of Indian Affairs for the region. He strengthened relations with the Shawnee and Delaware Indians, signing a Treaty of Neutrality with them. In 1776 he was commissioned a major in the Continental Army's 8th Pennsylvania Regiment. He fought with the riflemen at Saratoga and commanded the 9th Pennsylvania Regiment at Stony Point. Subsequently, he served as colonel of the 5th Pennsylvania regiment at Yorktown, and afterward remained in the Continental Army. In 1783 he was given an honorary promotion to brigadier general. He was one of five brothers who all served in the military and were known collectively as “the fighting Butlers.” Richard Butler was killed in 1791 at the Battle on the Miami River in Ohio.

Lieutenant John McClellan, the original owner of the beautifully inlaid, silver-mounted tomahawk sold by Morphy’s, was from the outskirts of Carlisle. He served with Company D of Thompson’s Battalion, Pennsylvania Riflemen, and carried the tomahawk with him to war. “Riflemen were required to carry tomahawks as secondary weapons, as their longrifles were not equipped for bayonets,” Dan Morphy explained.

The tomahawk’s extensive line of provenance includes The Earl of Warwick (Warwick Castle, England), who loaned the tomahawk for display at The Tower of London; and other distinguished private collections in the US and UK. It is depicted on the cover of Indian Tomahawks & Frontiersman Belt Axes and appears in several other respected reference books.

Commenting on the $2 million auction session and the success of the Butler/McClellan tomahawk, Dan Morphy said: “We’re extremely happy with the results of yesterday’s auction, which shows that the market is stronger than ever. It’s always exciting when a rare piece of history crosses the auction block, especially one that has passed through so many important hands and has been so well documented.”

On day two of Morphy’s three-day auction event, featuring Extraordinary, Sporting, and Collector Firearms, Morphy's auctioned Annie Oakley's (1860-1926) custom-made "Little Miss Sure Shot" Stevens Model 44 .25-20 single-shot rifle, engraved with the name “ANNIE OAKLEY,” for $528,900.

Harry Hayman

Gemini Hospitality Consultants

At the end of the day what he really cares about is one’s mindset. “Our product at the end of the day is hope”. – Harry Hayman

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the world gradually starts to open its doors to consumers again, these turbulent times have left many to feel unsure about the appropriate measures to be taken to develop their businesses. Although many have worked out the recipes for great meals, a significant number of companies may not be familiar with the recipe for a successful restart. Harry Hayman, President of the comprehensive marketing program, GEMINI Hospitality Consultants, along with several other distinguished hospitality affiliations is here for you! As a hospitality and management specialist, Harry has been involved in a variety of Philly startups over the years. It’s safe to say that in these tough times, Harry knows a thing or two about the immediate responses available and needed. Harry wants to be a catalyst for the reopening of businesses-not just the restaurant industry but all businesses.

As a prominent Philly businessman, Harry Hayman, has an extensive knowledge of business do’s and don’ts. Founder of Feed Philly Coalition (FPC), an advocacy group that centralizes the fight against hunger and promotes a culture of food upcycling, Harry believes that “ We need to help the world open back up”. This has lead Harry to offer a 1/2-hour free consultation where “We can bitch and commiserate for a few minutes but then we are going to get down to how you are going to pivot and move forward”. While Harry has close connections with Philly, he believes his scope needs to be extended and is providing his services to be impactful worldwide. With the help of GEMINI, Harry believes that a great marketing strategy is creative and practical, proactive, not reactive, and keeps the budget and calendar top of mind.

Harry first made a name for himself in the restaurant and hospitality industries. His impressive resume of ventures has included the Bynum HOSPITALITY Group, Gemini Hospitality Consultants, EAST COAST SALOONS & RENEGADE TACOS, and has worked with VirusSafePro (www.virussafepro.com), BestSeal (www.thebestseal.com) LifeAire, Kognition, Servesafe, SYSCO, and many others. Such years of experience have helped Harry to now offer a "complete solution" to the customer-facing companies.

While Harry's team provides "practical goods," at the end of the day what he really cares about is one’s mindset. Harry states, “Our product at the end of the day is hope”. Harry Hayman currently participates in numerous forms of community involvement, including his frequent speaking engagements, the Feed Philly Coalition, and The Philadelphia Jazz Experience, which he founded and created.

Harry Hayman

https://harryhayman.com/about-harry/

Harry Hayman is a prominent figure in Philadelphia, known for his many business ventures and charitable causes. Harry first made a name for himself in the restaurant and hospitality industries with an impressive resume of ventures that includes the Bynum Hospitality Group, GEMINI Hospitality Consultants, EAST COAST Saloons & RENEGADE Tacos. Harry Hayman currently participates in numerous forms of community involvement, including his frequent speaking engagements, the Feed Philly Coalition and The Philadelphia Jazz Experience, which he founded. From an early age, Harry Hayman knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur. At age 17, he got his foot in the door of the bar business as a dish-washer in Washington, DC. Within the next couple of years, he would rise through the ranks and work just about every job you could think of in a bar. By 19, he started Presto! Design, marketing special events at local bars and restaurants.

While gaining real-world experience working in bars, he also pursued more traditional education. After attending Radnor High School, and then American University where he earned a B.A. in International Business and Finance, he wanted to prove to himself that he could get into the prestigious Wharton School of Business in Philadelphia. Harry spent a year at Wharton studying entrepreneurial management with a minor in English, and then took a leave of absence to expand the Bynum Hospitality Group’s operations and proceeded to open several new places. He was still a long way off from his future at EAST COAST Saloons, but his path lay clear before him. By now, he was ready to truly break out on his own as an entrepreneur. He founded GEMINI Hospitality Consultants, bringing with him many of the lessons and experience he’d learned from the restaurant industry.

With the passing decades, Harry gained experience in the fields of brand activation, charity, entrepreneurship, management, and marketing promotions, building his reputation for innovation and professionalism in the hospitality and entertainment industries. GEMINI continues to be a leader in consulting, helping those who want to enter into the restaurant industry get a handle on strategies for marketing and growth. Harry, meanwhile, continues to spend much of his time involved in community organizations, including speaking engagements and other activities. From dish-washer to consulting other entrepreneurs on how to get their business dreams off the ground, Harry Hayman has done it all.
