JP and Paul Norden Collaborate on a Book About the Boston Marathon Tragedy
by BWW News Desk - Mar 13, 2014

JP and Paul Norden, roofers from the small town of Stoneham, were waiting for a friend to run the marathon when the second explosion went off right beside them. Both brothers lost their right leg and suffered many injuries as a result. After hearing their story, writer Dave Smitherman teamed up with the duo to help chronicle their experience at the marathon and their journey to recovery. 'Their story is amazing and they've been through a ridiculous amount of challenges, but they never give up,' said Dave. 'Twice As Strong: 12 Seconds, 2 Brothers and the Marathon that Changed Their Lives' (Palari Publishing, ISBN 9781928662280) comes out April 1, 2014, in time for the anniversary of that tragic day in Boston history. The book is a comprehensive look at the brothers, their friends, and their struggle to get help after the explosion. Readers also get insight from the perspective of the first responders and medical crew that helped the brothers and their family through the trauma. 'The first time I did The Stairs using my prosthetic correctly was a milestone,' said Paul. During the rest of 2013, the entire Norden clan dealt with challenges as they learned to manage a new life with JP and Paul as amputees. Their determination and positive attitude has been an inspiration for thousands.

National Geographic Channel to Premiere THE NUMBERS GAME, 3/24
by TV News Desk - Feb 27, 2014

Take the index finger on your dominant hand and draw a capital letter 'Q' on your forehead. Where did the tail on your Q land? Theorists believe that if it ended up over your right eyebrow, you're presenting the letter as you would see it. You tend to lie less in life and you're less likely to deceive others. If the tail is over your left eyebrow, you may want to consider becoming a con artist, because you're probably a good liar. You're presenting the letter how someone else would see it, meaning you're also good at manipulating others' opinions. One study has found that six out of every 10 people may lie during a 10-minute conversation, and in that conversation they'll tell a lie every 30 seconds. (more...)
