MINI-REVIEW: “Al Danenberg, thanks so much for illuminating the interconnectedness of the human ecosystem. Crazy-Good Living! illustrates just how reflective of overall health both the gums and the GI are. Their relationship is seldom covered in modern dentistry and never in any other area of medicine. While Weston Price’s work over 100 years ago proved to be years ahead of its time, your account of recent clinical observations reveals how people cannot only reclaim their oral cavity but also their whole health through diet and lifestyle change. This book is both incredibly empowering and inspirational. You offer a more insightful look at how the microbiome functions than ever before. Thanks once again!” – John Bagnulo, MPH, PhD

MINI-REVIEW: “We are fans of Alvin Danenberg, DDS, and his research about the importance of nutrient-dense foods for lifelong dental health. Science now shows clearly that lifestyle factors, such as nutrition and management of stressors in an individual’s life, are the best predictors of genetic health, and that includes dental health. Read Crazy-Good Living! and you will not want to eat junk, processed foods ever again!” – Scott E. Miners, Editor, Well Being Journal

MINI-REVIEW: “The best healthy-living book I’ve ever read–hands down! If you don’t dramatically improve your health after reading this book, you cheated. The best in its field.” – D. J. Herda, Author, Editor, Syndicated Columnist

Five stars all the way.” – Jon Peterson, Health and Garden Writer

At stake, the Guild claims, is the right of authors to determine what becomes of their works in the digital age. Read the full press release here.Additionally, to coincide with the Supreme Court petition, we’ve put together a sequence of questions and answers highlighting why it’s so crucial for the future of authorship and copyright law that the high Court weigh in to redress the Second Circuit’s misinterpretation of fair use.

Bush 41 Jabs at Cheney, Rumsfeld

As an ex-president, George H.W. Bush has generally maintained a respectful silence regarding later administrations. But now he’s speaking out, criticizing some big names, and not in ways you might expect. As revealed in the new Jon Meacham biography, “Destiny And Power: The American Odyssey Of George Herbert Walker Bush,” the 41st president has some harsh words for the actions of his son’s administration.

In particular, he objects to how Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld reacted to 9/11. He feels they were too hawkish, taking a harsh, inflexible stance that tarnished America’s reputation around the world.

New Books: Vatican Mismanagement, Excess

The Vatican faced fresh accusations of mismanagement, excess and resistance to change as details from two new books emerged Tuesday, a day after the Holy See announced the arrest of two insiders on suspicion of leaking internal information. The allegations in the books suggest a mix of formidable forces confront Pope Francis as he seeks to reform a Vatican bureaucracy long shrouded in secrecy and charged for years with being inefficient and lacking in transparency.

The Washington Post obtained an early copy of “Avarice: Documents Revealing Wealth, Scandals and Secrets of Francis’ Church” by Italian journalist Emiliano Fittipaldi of L’Espresso, which delves into the details of suspect accounts in the Vatican Bank, big spending by cardinals and the “saint making factory” of the Holy See.

Witchy Woman

Author Stacy Schiff

It started with a prickling sensation on their skin. Then Abigail Williams, 11, and her cousin Betty Parris, 9, complained of feeling pinches and bites. They howled, writhed, went rigid and spoke gibberish. Friends and neighbors gathered in their house to pray and sing psalms.

Weeks later, a well-meaning neighbor hit on a solution. She ordered a household servant to make a witch cake, mixing the girls’ urine into rye flour that was baked in embers, then fed to a dog, in an attempt to reveal who had bewitched them. Within days, Abigail and Betty named three local women as their tormentors.

Carney Tells What NYT Didn’t

If you read the recent New York Times article about Amazon’s culture, you remember that quote. Attributed to Bo Olson, the image of countless employees crying at their desks set the tone for a front-page story that other media outlets described as “scathing,” “blistering,” “brutal” and “harsh.” Olson’s words were so key to the narrative the Times wished to construct that they splashed them in large type just below the headline.Here’s what the story didn’t tell you about Mr. Olson: his brief tenure at Amazon ended after an investigation revealed he had attempted to defraud vendors and conceal it by falsifying business records. When confronted with the evidence, he admitted it and resigned immediately.

Appellate Affirms Google Book Search

The U.S Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has affirmed a 2013 lower court ruling that Google’s library book scanning project is protected by fair use and is not copyright infringement. The suit, The Authors Guild vs. Google filed by the Authors Guild in 2005, charged Google with copyright infringement for scanning millions of titles and making them available via libraries and making snippets of the titles available via on-line search.

Rejecting the Authors Guild’s appeal of Judge Denny Chin’s 2013 ruling in favor of Google, the Second Circuit said that Google’s scanning and distribution of the titles to libraries was a “transformative use which augments public knowledge by making available information about Plaintiff’s books.” The court rejected the Guild’s contention that Google was providing a substitute for the works themselves, holding that the public display of text is limited. The court also supported Google’s use of “snippets,” short passages displayed to help identify the works, and noted that “Google’s commercial nature and profit motivation do not justify denial of fair use.”

Finally, the court wrote that Google’s distribution of digital copies to participating libraries “is non-infringing, and the mere speculative possibility that the libraries might allow use of their copies in an infringing manner does not make Google a contributory infringer.”

Suit: Judge Jeanine Disregarded “Truth and Accuracy”

Jeanine Pirro, the Westchester County district attorney turned television judge, is less than three weeks away from the release date of what she hopes will be a blockbuster book: “He Killed Them All: Robert Durst and My Quest for Justice.” The book is not available yet, but promotional material promises that it will reveal “stunning, previously unknown secrets about the crimes”

Mr. Durst, the peculiar scion of a New York real estate family, is accused of committing. Those crimes include the 1982 disappearance of his first wife and the 2000 murder of a former confidante in Los Angeles. In 2000, Ms. Pirro’s office reopened the 18-year-old inquiry into his wife Kathleen’s disappearance.

Durst’s story is stuffed with details — enormous wealth, a murder mystery, cross-dressing, the dismemberment of an elderly neighbor whose head is still missing, a second wife who lives with one of his lawyers — that have inspired books, television specials, a feature film and an Emmy Award-winning documentary, “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.”
