Treasure Match: The Next Biggest Gaming App
by BWW News Desk - May 6, 2014

Treasure Match is a mix between a slot machine game and a matching game. The competitiveness comes from the friends on Facebook. Although Treasure Match is easy to play, it is very difficult to earn points. Unlike most gaming apps, Treasure Match is free. Treasure Match makes its revenue strictly on advertisements. 'I didn't want to charge anyone 99-cents to play my game. I just wanted them to have fun and share their score on Facebook,' said Oliver Galang. (more...)

'Sex and Crime' Reveals a New Perspective on Drug Addiction
by BWW News Desk - May 22, 2014

'Sex and Crime: Oliver's Strange Journey' is an autobiographical book that follows the incredible life of Oliver, a teenage hacker in Aachen, Germany, who is the victim of traumatic childhood abuse and suffers from PTSD. He falls in love with an American girl online, and spends many hours on the phone with her every day for a year, until he moves in with her in New York. After his crazy adventures as a New York cab driver, he becomes a successful cartoonist and goes on to be an Internet millionaire. A painful divorce throws him into a deep, almost suicidal depression, until he falls in love with a heroin addict and he ends up moving to Fort Myers, Florida. As his life spirals more and more out of control, Oliver gets sucked deeper and deeper into the dark world of drug addiction and prostitution. 'Sex and Crime' offers an unflinching look at the seedy underworld of Fort Myers, that most residents are probably not aware of. It explores the world of online prostitution, the underlying causes and consequences of drug addiction, as well as the shortcomings of the AA 12-step-program and the failure of traditional rehab programs that are utterly divorced from modern medical science. Along his journey, Oliver encounters a number of female drug addicts and he empathizes with them because of his own traumatic past. He feels compelled to try to help them escape the addict lifestyle, but the end result is always the same. They break his heart. Despite all its gritty ugliness, there is beauty to be found in Sex and Crime. Oliver never gives up hope that the next drug addict may be different. He never stops believing that deep down every person is good and deserves a second chance in life. There have been a number of books about drug addiction in recent years, but 'Sex and Crime' offers a fresh, unique perspective. Oliver himself is not Addicted to drugs, and yet addiction takes a heavy toll on him, as the addicts in his life hurt him over and over. His knowledge of addiction is at once intimate and distant. As outsider deep inside the drug world he has a unique vantage point. There's an old saying: 'Fish don't know they're wet.' Oliver sees patterns and similarities that the addicts themselves can't see. The book is more than an examination of drug addiction and its harrowing consequences and collateral damage. It is an emotional, deeply personal and often very touching account of one man's struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, addiction in all its many forms, love and loss. Although it's an autobiography, 'Sex and Crime' often feels like an action adventure novel, because the events described are so far removed from what most people consider normal every-day life. The book deals with very dark subject matter, but the author's eloquently simplistic prose makes it a breeze to read. His writing never feels pompous or pretentious. He takes the reader by the hand and gently leads you deeper and deeper into the darkness. Oliver's ability to recognize his own mistakes in hindsight, and his humble, self-deprecating sense of humor make Sex and Crime a very entertaining read, even when his brutal honesty makes you cringe. Sex and Crime: Oliver's Strange Journey by Oliver Markus (Westhoff Publishing, 484 pages) is available in paperback and as Kindle ebook. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IKO4ZSQ (more...)

BWW Reviews: MARK NADLER Is Deliciously Scandalous As His New Show Transforms 54 Below Into a Decadent Jazz Age Speakeasy
by Stephen Hanks - May 1, 2014

When Mark Nadler last performed a solo show at 54 Below, it was a very personal musical exploration of Germany's Weimar Republic of the 1920s, a place and an atmosphere that was dark, dangerous and decadent. I'm a Stranger Here Myself was such a compelling tour de force that it was expanded into a highly praised off-Broadway piece that Nadler staged at the York Theatre last Spring. Nadler's new 54 Below effort, Runnin' Wild: Songs & Scandals of the Roaring Twenties, (which opened last Sunday, ran last night, and will also play on May 7 at 9:30pm and May 14 at 7pm) is like a playful and debauched sequel to Stranger, only in this show—which would be more aptly titled “Reckless Abandon”--Nadler is clearly a gleeful member of the club. To this passionate piano man, America's big cities in the pre-Depression era 1920s were happy, hungry, and hedonistic. There was always a party filled with sex, drugs and booze looking for a place to happen. And goodness knows, Mark Nadler wishes he'd been invited to every one of them. But since he was born too late, all he can do is serve as congenial host in re-creating the speakeasy ambiance and in this show he manages to accomplish that--only without the sex and drugs. Damn!

Author Ray Shilling Pens a New Book Revealing How Tropical Island Nations Are Truly Walking the Razor's Edge
by BWW News Desk - Jul 16, 2014

Debut Announcement Thesis: Over the past century, residents of the world's most desirable tropical island destinations have become Addicted to the continuous flow of money from visiting tourists. Without sufficient alternate industries in place, following a global economic catastrophe, their very long-term survival may be in jeopardy. Case: The Bahamas In the past decade, much has been discussed about the threat of rising ocean levels on low-lying coastal and island communities of the world. While this is a valid concern over the next 50 years, perhaps a much more immediate threat is an economic one. The Bahamas is a capable, successful nation - usually ranked in the top five GDP per capita in the western hemisphere. However, the Bahamian people have allowed their agricultural, fishing and manufacturing industries to decline in favor of tourism-related services. They have now become far too dependent upon other countries of the world for their survival. Income - Economists estimate that 2/3rds of Bahamian income depends upon tourism. The next largest industry - financial services - makes up roughly 15% of national revenues. Agriculture generates less than 3% of GDP. Expenditure - Water, food, shelter and energy are the essentials of sustaining life. The Bahamas has adequate fresh water from rainfall, and most current residents have shelter. Food - The Bahamian people produce less than 10% of the food consumed in the Islands; relying on a mind-boggling 90% of imported food, primarily from the USA. Energy - The Bahamas is powered by fossil fuels - oil and natural gas - imported from other nations. While the Bahamas has ubiquitous wind and solar energy, it currently ranks 26th out of 27 nations of the West Indies in its investment in renewable energy sources. What If? The Bahamas sells its sun, sand and sea to tourists, and then, in turn, spends that revenue on purchasing food and energy. What if the planes, cruise ships and private yachts stopped visiting the Islands? Bahamians would quickly run out of money to purchase these essentials. A worldwide global depression could trigger such an occurrence. Moreover, following a global economic collapse - and the resulting devastation and chaos in Bahamian society - would the remaining wealthy North Americans and Europeans still have the confidence to 'offshore' their wealth to the Bahamian banking system? Raise Awareness Through Storytelling This is clearly a very serious issue, with potentially deadly consequences. The citizens of the Bahamas - and many other tropical island nations - need to wake up, pay attention and begin to make the necessary changes to mitigate this possible calamity. Rather than publish a dry, lecturing white paper on the subject, Shilling is drawing attention to the issue via an action novel: 'Poseidon's Cradle :: Wolves of the Apocalypse' Against a backdrop of worldwide economic catastrophe - and the particular vulnerability of tropical island nations - Bahamian entrepreneur Lance Monroe is seduced by the drug underworld. But, in the face of corruption and murder, he is soon compelled to choose another path. In an all-too-possible future, after the Great Global Depression of 2023, only the wealthy can afford to take vacations to the tropics. With the collapse of middle-class tourism, island populations find themselves struggling to pay for the essentials of life. Forced to shut down his dive expedition business, Marine-trained fighter and water-man Monroe reluctantly embarks on transporting contraband for the Dominicans. However, when a secret bio-engineering lab stumbles upon a new super coca strain, the stage is set for a dangerous clash between corrupt governments, drug cartels and the world's largest pharmaceutical company. Tense and disturbing, this ambitious story takes the reader on a wild ride through a harsh, often merciless landscape, with an electrifying plot of action, intrigue, corruption and revenge.

I'm Addicted!' - Andrea Cocetti 'Kickboxing has really helped me reach my goals, I am feeling stronger and my body is toning up. I know if I keep coming to class and staying focused on my diet I will reach my long term goals. Also being in a 'Biggest Losers' challenge and winning 2nd place reminded me I can do anything I put my mind to. All you have to do is show up and push yourself a little further each time. I like coming to kickboxing class because it is a great environment with awesome instructors that really want to see you reach your goals. I love taking out my frustrations on the bag and always leave feeling refreshed and stress free. Kickboxing has really changed my life and I am happy to be a part of the I Love Kickboxing family in Sandy!' - Johnna Archuleta Happy Birthday iLoveKickboxing-Sandy. Here's to 4 more years!
