Author Ami Moore, The Chicago Dog Coach, Auditions For Oprah's Search For The Next TV Star

The subject of pets, most especially dogs, holds universal appeal for the public. Ms. Moore believes her show concept could draw huge numbers of viewers to the network

Dogs hold a universal appeal for a very large percentage of the American public. Very few people know dogs like Ami Moore, widely known as the Chicago Dog Coach. Ms. Moore has submitted her entry for Oprah's search for the next TV star.

"This is a show," stated Ms. Moore, "that will show dog owners cutting edge dog trainng tips, dog nutrition ideas and holistic healing methods from all over the world. Dogs are just like us and can do things that are AMAZING. My show will show it all. You have to go beyond the Dog Whisperer and get into the dog’s soul, as I teach in my book, The Alphatude Attitude. This is a subject that holds universal appeal with the public and is the reason I believe this show could draw huge numbers of viewers.'"

Ms. Moore's audition can be viewed at here.

Ami Moore is widely recognized as one of America’s leading dog training masters. She has dovetailed her love of learning, her coaching skills and her love of dogs into the creation of a vibrant company that has enabled her to create harmony between homeowners and dogs in homes all over America.

As a dog trainer, personal coach and therapist, she assists non-profit organizations in creating and implementing therapy/service dog programs in schools, churches, community centers, prisons and other businesses.

"In my book, 'The Alphatude Attitude'", continued Ms. Moore, "I talk about how the human component, particularly the feelings of fear, anger and frustration, influence a dog's behavior. The human learning to control their emotions is an important part of this process. I always tell my clients that their dogs need leadership more than love. ‘Alphatude’ is the leadership attitude expressed in a way that the dog understands. Dogs don’t really understand abstractions like words or emotions. Dogs understand concrete communication: tone, body language and facial expression. Being chosen as the next TV star would allow me to bring this message to a much wider audience.”

Ami Moore has been featured in numerous industry publications, magazines and newspapers across the country. She writes as the Chicago Dog Training Expert for She is available for interview and speaking engagements. She can be reached by email at More information is available at the company’s website.

Author Lois W. Stern, Editor-At-Large for, Releases Professional DVD Support Tool for Plastic Surgeons, Cosmetic Surgeons

Nationally known author and plastic surgery expert Lois W. Stern created the Professional Edition DVD Support Tools to help plastic surgeons enhance the cosmetic surgery experience for their patients. Designed to help surgeons personalize their services, it saves them time by providing patients with a tool that offers sound guidance, reinforces important concepts, reduces patient stress, answers crucial questions, and gives reassurance. In short, the DVD Support Tools are designed to help prospective patients better partner with their surgeons for a rewarding cosmetic surgery experience.

Lois W. Stern, nationally known author, plastic surgery expert and editor-at-large for, has recently released a Professional Edition DVD to help plastic surgeons save time, reduce patient stress and ease communication between surgeon and patient.

The Professional Series DVD is a natural extension to Stern's highly acclaimed book, “Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery” which garnered a number of industry awards, was featured in a full length article on page 2 of the Style section of the New York Times and L.A. Times, and will soon be released in a new edition. The DVD includes key excerpts from this book as well as helpful checklists, self-assessment forms, original articles, video and audio segments and more. Book excerpts detail the real life experiences of over 100 women who have undergone cosmetic surgery (including those of the author), help anyone considering cosmetic procedures to better understand its emotional undercurrents while answering crucial questions, providing reassurance and offering guidance. In short, it is designed to help the prospective patient better partner with her surgeon to enhance the entire cosmetic surgery experience.

Dr. Leo McCafferty, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon from Pittsburgh, Pa, who holds several key positions within the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) said: "The information, I believe, would be very helpful and useful for patients."

Board Certified plastic surgeons from as far as Seattle, Wa; Eugene, Oregon; Tuscon, Arizona and Munster, Indiana – all active members of the ASAPS - have posted thoughtful blogs on their websites saying: “Lois W. Stern did her homework. She has extensive checklists. She has advice. She talks about how we have to step up to the plate and partner with our doctor if we want to get the best possible results. . . (The content from her book and DVD) starts where some of the other books on the subject seem to stop: with the questions people really, really want to ask but seldom do; with the answers they really want to have, but can’t seem to find.”

The DVD Professional Edition Support Tools are particularly valuable for patients because its contents speak from the experiences of over 100 women. Words such as “It’s the next best thing to having a personal conversation with a really good friend”, come from user feedback. Surgeons appreciate its honest approach to difficult-to-address issues that can arise both pre and post surgery including dealing with negative attitudes of family and friends, depression, post surgery emotions, attraction toward one’s plastic surgeon, and more. It also delivers many comforting facts to help patients partner with their surgeons while reducing pre and post-surgery stress.

This DVD program provides for unlimited rights to print and disseminate any of its material within a single cosmetic surgery office environment.

Plastic and facial cosmetic surgeons who become involved with this program are provided with the opportunity to have their photo, name and link to their website posted on three active websites.

Author Carolyn Vines Believes Corporate America's Standard Of Beauty Cannot Be Imposed Upon Black Women

Corporate America is becoming more interested in the beauty standards set for black women. In her soon to be released book, Black and (A)broad, author Carolyn Vines encourages single black women to reject any blindly accepted societal limitations, including the attempt to set beauty standards set for them

Carolyn Vines, author of Black and (A)broad, encourages black women to reject any and all limitations and identities imposed upon them by society. She offers inspiration to all black women regardless of age.

Black beauty bloggers are gaining more acceptance in American society. Recently Patrice Yursik, founder of Afrobella was chosen to be featured in Fast Company magazine and on The Root. While Ms. Vines sees this as a move forward, she also perceives a danger that obsolete standards may be imposed upon women - black women in particular.

"The recent debates surrounding the sexuality of black women," stated Ms. Vines, "have prompted discussion all over the blogosphere. Moreover, the debates have brought other issues into question, namely America's obsolete standard of beauty. Black women like the late Lena Horne moved beyond this would-be limitation on her identity and inspired countless others to do the same."

Beauty is beauty, regardless where it may be found and black has always been beautiful. Economics appear to be the driving factor in corporate America's interest in the black beauty market, as a recent study showed that black women spend more than three times as much on beauty products as their white counterparts. Today however, unlike the 1960's, television driven, 'hand them what we want them to buy' mentality, buying trends and beauty standards are being determined by buyers themselves through social media and blogs.

Moreover, with America's new-found global awareness, companies that hope to profit must begin to realize that standards of beauty are culturally driven and cannot be imposed by any outside entity, regardless of economics. Ms. Vines, an award winning blogger herself, believes this global awareness will cause companies with obsolete standards of beauty to be dragged kicking and screaming into the new social environment, where failure to accept what black women demand will cause old-school companies to become obsolete themselves.

"Through my travels," continued Ms. Vines "in Mexico, Spain, the Caribbean and Holland, to name a few, I've found that beauty is culturally determined." Furthermore, Vines urges considering the dollars and "sense" of the issue.

"It's a fact that black women spend millions of dollars every year," she said, "to live up to a standard of beauty we had no say-so in creating. Our hard-earned salaries, still well below those of our white and Asian counterparts, continue to support industries that give nothing back to our communities."

Black And Abroad describes how after moving from New Orleans Carolyn finds herself in the land of windmills, wooden shoes and endless gray skies. As she moves away from the remnants of her tragic childhood and America’s obsession with race, she is plunged into the depths of homesickness and depression. She travels through motherhood and a career change, and her determination is put to the test.

On the way to self-discovery, she ends up finding love, soul sisters and is inspired to travel beyond the limits imposed upon her by race. In this mid-life memoir, Carolyn writes candidly about how being mistaken for a prostitute in Austria, losing her passport in Cuba and dealing with Dutch people on their bikes (among other quirky adventures) have changed her ideas about being a black woman in the world. Black and (A)broad is to be released in August 2010.

Ms. Vines is available for interview and can be reached using the information below or by email at More information on her forthcoming book is available at her website at


Carolyn Vines hails from Indianapolis, USA. Her passion for language has led her to teach Spanish, English and literature at universities in America and The Netherlands. It has also led her into a career as an author, editor and translator. Her work has been published in local Dutch English language papers and The Telegraph. She speaks Spanish and Dutch and last year translated a novel by a critically-acclaimed Curaçaoan author. As the result of her life experiences, she believes it is possible to travel beyond identity and offers inspiration to travel beyond limitations.

Ms. Vines’s website was the 2009 Black Weblog Award Winner for Best International Blog. She is currently writing her first book about her twenty years’ experience living and traveling abroad. Look for Black And (A)broad early in August of 2010.

Guests on the weekly show present timely and important information regarding planning in regards to a wide variety of mental and health care issues

Bea On Bereavement - The Power Of Planning has announced the upcoming show lineup.

Serious illness and death are never questions of ‘if’ but are rather a question of ‘when’. Nevertheless, very few people are really adequately prepared when these occur.

As a result of the release of her book, she has now taken on the role of television host in an effort to reach a wider audience.
