Co-author Wid Bastian was a guest last week on Will Roberts’ Weekly Telegram radio show. He explained how he met the book’s co-author, Dr. Michael Atkins, a Washington D.C. based marine biologist and how together they wrote a book that directly addresses the topic of do animals have emotions. Wid and Michael argue that whales not only have emotions, they are also highly intelligent and have complex social lives. Henry and Tom makes you think twice about not only the immorality of killing any whale, but also the cruelty of jailing them in places like Sea World or putting dolphins on display at luxury hotels for the amusement of human guests.

Henry-and-Tom-Cover
Henry and Tom is a story about a man bonding with a whale and their great adventure together across the Pacific. The other aspect of the novel that readers find compelling is the story of a successful blended family. Divorce can be brutal on kids. In Henry and Tom, loving parents do their best to put their children’s needs first. What a great example of how to do a difficult thing the right way.

As one Amazon reviewer put it, “Henry and Tom is an extraordinary story of love and cooperation between a man and a whale… It deals with marriage and family, life crises, finding one’s self – personal development and life in the real world in addition to the story with the whale… It’s a deep and very moving story. Beautifully written and well produced. I highly recommend it.”

Three Arrested, As Occupy Protestors Blockade Boca Bridge, Cause Traffic Snarls

Occupy movement Protestors in south Florida took their concerns about corporate greed to a new level today, by blockading the Camino Real bridge in Boca Raton this evening, snarling rush hour traffic.

Activists were protesting the 2012 GAIM Conference, which sells itself as “one of the most important conferences for the hedge fund industry.” Last years attendee list of over 500 included prominent banks and investors involved in funding private prisons and home foreclosures. The current list of attendees remains a secret.

Boca Raton Bridge BlockadePast attendees include representatives from BP, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America. The GAIM conference schedule includes an outdoor cocktail party this evening at the Boca Resort.

The bridge blockade was an attempt to disrupt the cocktail hour and to bring public attention to the list of “corporate criminals” gathered in Boca. High on the list of concerns for the protestors are fraudulent bank foreclosures and the building of private prison & immigrant detention facilities.

Wearing “lockdown” devices, the three anti-corporate greed activists, laid down on the bridge effectively stopping rush hour traffic for an hour, between 5:00 and 6:30. Special operations police teams were called to the site to remove the lockdown devices that were linking the protestors together. The three were arrested and are expected to appear before a judge tomorrow morning at the Palm Beach County jail.

Occupy Protesters Outside GAIM Conference

“Our lives and the environment are not a game for corporations to roll the dice and hedge their bets on. We want accountability. We want corporate funding of elections to end.”
– Kevin Young just prior to being arrested

“Every day we see corporate power destroying our communities. From environmental disasters to private prisons, corporations are operating with impunity,” said Ana Rodriguez before being arrested. “While the bank leaders drink cocktails and toast to increased profits, people across the globe are being hurt by corporate greed.”

Another protestor scaled a tree alongside the bridge and hung a large banner that read: “What Would Robin Hood Do?” The banner was taken down by a fire truck and confiscated by Boca Raton police.

Police expect protestors to return tomorrow for day three of the GAIM conference.

Is There A Puzzle to Be Solved Under Glastonbury Tor?

There is a place – a very special place – located in Glastonbury, a small town in Somerset, England. A place that comes up in many conversations, books and movies. This is not a surprise. After all, the myths and legends that have always surrounded this small community are numerous and well-known.

For Christians, it is believed that Glastonbury is where Joseph of Arimathea came with his men (the group numbering 13) to hide the Holy Grail, thrust his staff into Wearyall Hill, and produced the Glastonbury Thorn – the original thorn tree. It is also believed by many that King Arthur and his knights (the group numbering 13) entered the legendary island of Avalon through a ‘door’ in Glastonbury. In fact, in 1191 monks at the abbey claimed to have found the graves of Arthur and Guinevere to the south of the Lady Chapel of the Abbey Church. It has also been suggested that St. Michael’s Church – the remains of which still stand atop Glastonbury Tor – was the location where Michael and his angel brethren (another group of 13) entered the world to save, fight, defend, or bring law to the people of this earth.

There are colored lights seen (and photographed) in the sky over Glastonbury; and there are odd sounds and images that have been seen (and recorded) of ghostly figures that seem to inhabit the small town.

It was in 1935 however, when a landscape zodiac was first discovered. The ‘signs’ having been formed by natural features such as roads, streams and field boundaries that were situated around Glastonbury. This ancient zodiac was supposedly a perfect match to the stars above – a perfect match of 13 signs. Capricorn’s “eye” was a haystack; the wing of the Aquarius phoenix was a road laid in 1782; the sign of Cancer was a network of 18th century drainage ditches and paths. Many features ‘supposedly’ came together to show an ancient zodiac that leads people to the roofless, St. Michael’s Tower that sits atop the mysterious, Glastonbury Tor.

As everyone knows – fiction is fiction. BUT in every piece of fiction there is an undeniable fact that the fiction was built upon. In a remarkable new book that has just been released, this subject has been taken one step further. Perhaps there are facts embedded in the Arthurian legend, the legend of the Holy Grail, and the zodiac signs that could very well be put together to lead to a treasure that no one has even thought of yet.

Like The DaVinci Code, 13 (which is the first book in a brand new adventure series called, Tallent & Lowery), utilizes some very real facts that have been placed side-by-side in order to form a puzzle that has readers running to their computers in order to look up each and every detail.

Debates are already beginning over some of the very real characters and locations that this author has been able to piece together. From the mysteries that are inside the Winchester House in San Jose, California – to the ‘bloody’ streets of Whitechapel, readers are already discussing who The Ripper really was, and why a woman truly thought that there were ghosts living in her house that she had to listen to – all the while being completely obsessed over the number 13.

The author has also delved into the world of Aleister Crowley. Some see this man as a true visionary who brought the world different ideas and concepts – a pioneer, in fact, where the subjects of religion and science are concerned. Whereas others believe him to be exactly what he proclaimed himself to be – the Devil, personified.

Aleister Crowley, Jack the Ripper, Sarah Winchester, Andrew Carnegie, Rudolf Steiner – what could all these people from such completely different locations have to do with any myth or legend that may reside in the small town of Glastonbury? Well…in order to know the answer to that, one must begin the adventure.

A hint, perhaps? Included in the puzzle is information about The Golden Dawn, which was an organization that included some pretty popular members throughout time. Aleister Crowley, Rudolf Steiner – and even the poet, Yeats – were members. The meetings that occurred between these three men at various times throughout history is yet another piece of the puzzle that heads readers straight to Glastonbury.

This is a novel that reviewers are calling one of the best puzzles to ever be written, and the upside for all readers out there is that 13 is only the first of seven that are about to be told. Already, there are production companies debating on who should play the characters of Leah Tallent & Gareth Loweryforty-something’s or the late-twenty-something’s that Hollywood has to offer. Could Shia LaBeouf personify a truly interesting bad guy that would bring readers into a whole new dimension? We‘ll have to find out.

But setting aside all the glitz, glamour and raves, the historical information and the weaving of people and places into a very real mystery is truly fascinating. And each and every piece of the puzzle is in direct relation to the 13th sign, and the reason why the zodiac was altered so long ago.

It is no surprise that this book begins inside the New York Public Library – one of the most amazing institutions that houses some of the most fascinating history ever written. And to be able to head from there into a haunted house, walk down a famous street, explore a home on the shores of Loch Ness where some truly mystical events once occurred, is a fantastic experience. Finding clues in the brilliant poetry of Poe and Yeats have readers rushing to embark on this amazing treasure hunt.

What is buried in Glastonbury and simply waiting to be uncovered? Tallent & Lowery will show you. This work of fiction that was built upon facts buried in the past, is a truly brilliant adventure.

Let the debates begin
