Editor's Note<br />

Is it still <strong>2020</strong>?<br />

Working from home is the new norm and I am really beginning to<br />

think companies will want to continue this trend even past the<br />

covid 19 pandemic. Why? It saves money and helps the companies<br />

bottom line. With the shear advantages this gives the business,<br />

don't forget the worker has advantages as well.<br />

Not having to commute to work saves gas, time, and hasty food<br />

decisions. It also allows the worker to spend more time with<br />

family, familiar environment, better work productivity, and a<br />

happier employee. You can even keep your pajama bottoms on if<br />

you are doing zoom meetings, no one will notice.<br />

What do you think? When all is said and done do you think<br />

business owners will go back to the way it was, or will this be the<br />

new normal for everyone? Chime in on our Facebook page at<br />

1. Create a plan to eliminate debt.<br />

Whether you carry a balance on a credit card,<br />

have student loans or a mortgage, start paying<br />

off your debts now. Reducing your monthly<br />

expenses not only allows you to save more for<br />

retirement, but also gives you more flexibility<br />

with how you spend money after you stop<br />

working.<br />

2. Make retirement savings automatic, and<br />

don't miss out on "free money."<br />

Many employers offer a retirement savings<br />

plan, such as a 401(k), to their employees. The<br />

sooner you begin saving, the sooner your<br />

savings can begin to build up over time. Help<br />

your nest egg grow even faster by contributing<br />

enough to take full advantage of any matching<br />

contributions your employer offers. For<br />

example, your company might match 100% of<br />

your contribution, up to 6% of your salary. In<br />

other words, if you earn $50,000 a year and<br />

save at least $3,000, your company will match<br />

that amount by contributing $3,000 to your<br />

retirement as well.<br />

3. Understand how your retirement savings<br />

translates into income.<br />

Take the time during your working years to<br />

understand how much income you might<br />

receive in retirement based on your retirement<br />

savings. The U.S. Department of Labor offers<br />

a simple retirement income projection tool that<br />

can help you get started. If you see that<br />

projections are falling short of where you think<br />

you might need them to be, consider filling the<br />

gap by increasing the amount you are saving.<br />

Additionally, if you are over the age of 50, you<br />

can make catch-up contributions to your 401(k)<br />

or individual retirement account.<br />

MetLife's Study also asked workers and<br />

retirees the age of the oldest person they<br />

know. On average, that person is almost 85<br />

years old, and 45% of survey participants<br />

believe they'll live that long too. Many of us<br />

can, therefore, expect to live 20 years - or<br />

more - in retirement, and we'll need our<br />

savings to last. The question is: Will we be<br />

able to enjoy a comfortable and secure<br />

retirement, especially during periods of market<br />

turmoil like we are experiencing now?<br />

Having a predictable income can make a big<br />

difference and fortunately relief may be in<br />

sight. While many employers don't yet offer<br />

guaranteed retirement income options in their<br />

401(k) plans, a new law passed at the end of<br />

2019 could change this. That's good news,<br />

considering that 95% of workers and retirees<br />

say it's important for retirees to have a source<br />

of guaranteed retirement income they cannot<br />

outlive.<br />

MetLife's Study was conducted online with<br />

1,518 U.S. adults ages 33-75 who are either<br />

employed full time or retired and have access<br />

to a defined benefit or defined contribution plan<br />

through their current employer or the employer<br />

from which they retired. Data were weighted,<br />

where necessary, to align with actual<br />

population proportions. The Study was<br />

conducted by The Harris Poll between Aug. 19<br />

and Sept. 6, 2019.<br />

With many Americans spending more time at<br />

home, they are also using more common household<br />

items such as cleaning supplies, pantry items and<br />

snacks, among other things. According to a Harris Poll<br />

survey, Americans are concerned about the economic<br />

impact the pandemic will have on their lives.<br />

These economic concerns are leading shoppers to<br />

seek out more ways to save. With the convenience and<br />

flexibility online shopping provides, many customers are<br />

turning to e-retailers to find those must-have items.<br />

To help busy and budget-conscious shoppers, Woot!, the<br />

Amazon owned daily deals site, launched a grocery and<br />

household category to offer deals on everyday essentials.<br />

Consider these five ways shoppers can save time and money when making household purchases.<br />

Compare prices. One benefit of shopping online versus in-store is you can look across different brands to<br />

compare prices in real time. By seeing available brands and pricing in one place, you can save more and<br />

make the best purchase choices for your household. Take advantage of deals. When you shop in a store,<br />

you’re confined to the deals and selection the store is offering at the time of your trip. When you shop<br />

online, you aren’t limited to the store’s offerings, often allowing you to score better deals and browse a<br />

larger selection. For instance, you can check out deal sites like Woot.com to get new daily deals on<br />

household must-haves on your list for lower prices than you typically find in brick-and-mortar stores. Save<br />

time exploring virtual aisles. Shopping at a store can be time consuming. Innovations like Woot!’s virtual<br />

grocery and household aisles allow you to quickly and easily shop various categories and find the best<br />

deals. Unlike in-person aisles, these virtual aisles hide categories when selection is unavailable so you<br />

won’t waste your time and can be confident items you’re looking at are available at a discount. Customize<br />

your shopping experience. The flexibility and convenience of shopping online can save you time. Since you<br />

aren’t shopping in-store, you don’t have to worry about store hours and locations, giving you the flexibility<br />

to shop at all hours and from any location, as long as you have Wi-Fi and access to a computer or mobile<br />

device. With the ability to shop around your schedule, you can gain precious time to spend with the people<br />

you love, doing the things you love. 5 Ways to Save Big on Everyday Essentials Benefit from membership<br />

perks. Another perk of online shopping is being able to leverage membership benefits to save more. Some<br />

retailers offer member-based programs or partner to offer members of certain programs discounts. One<br />

example is Woot.com, which offers exclusive deals and free shipping for Amazon Prime members who<br />

shop on the site. Between the vast selection, price options and convenience of shopping from home, there<br />

are many ways shoppers can save big on time and money as they shop for everyday essentials and<br />

household must-haves.<br />

Affiliates - Your Free Way<br />

To Web Income<br />

By: Ian Stables<br />

If you're looking for a way to earn your living<br />

from the internet then there is no better and<br />

easier way than this. What's great is there's no<br />

product to make and it's FREE. You get paid<br />

instead.Let's first look at what it takes in order<br />

to make money the traditional way...Because<br />

there's so much competition on the net you<br />

need to offer many products in order to earn<br />

a reasonable living. Do you want to spend a<br />

lot of time creating these? If you do then fine, but be prepared for a lot of hard work,<br />

research and a long wait for results.Imagine instantly acquiring 10, 20, 50, 100, or even<br />

1000s of desirable products. You simply put them up for sale and kaboom you're an<br />

instant success. Your income automatically comes to you without even sending a single<br />

product or sending a single invoice.Or imagine this...You get a job as a salesman but<br />

instead of being limited to one product that someone might or might not want. You have<br />

a product for everyone. You'll always have a customer. Every day!Then imagine getting<br />

home from the pub or back from holiday. You switch on your computer and check to see<br />

how much your bank balance has increased.<br />


You copy and paste an affiliate link and short recommendation into your website that<br />

you create. (Visit Tripod's website and you can have a website for free.) They all offer this<br />

written up for you. You just copy and paste.Then advertise your site to get<br />

customers.The best way to advertise your site is by writing short useful articles with a link<br />

back to your website. Then simply post the article to as many article sites as possible.<br />

They're all free.Every time someone reads your article they'll most probably click the link<br />

in your resource box and visit your site.Also in every email you send to anyone have your<br />

website link in that as well.The easiest way to do this is by setting up a sig file in your<br />

email program. Look at the help to find out how to do this.Then every time you send an<br />

email your website link will be included.


There are 2 ways.<br />

Method #1 You can search the internet<br />

looking at many different products for sale<br />

that offer an affiliate program. Believe me, this<br />

takes time. I've tried it.Each time you find one,<br />

you sign up.Every time someone clicks your<br />

link and buys from the site you earn a<br />

commission. Simple!<br />

Method #2 You use a free service which is a<br />

web site that has lots of companies with a<br />

product offering an affiliate program.There<br />

are many available.Click the link at the bottom<br />

of this article for the one, in my opinion, is the<br />

best I've found. IT'S FREE.<br />

To sign up you don't need to provide any credit card details, so it's completely safe. You<br />

will however need a Paypal account. You just tell them the Paypal email address to pay<br />

the funds. If you don't like Paypal they have a few other options. And, oh yes. It's free to<br />

join. When you've joined simply click the marketplace tab and scan the products. Any<br />

item you wish to promote you simply click the promote button. You are then given your<br />

affiliate URL and all the sales patter you want. Or you can make up your own. Simple!<br />

You've got nothing to lose. Sign up now (IT'S FREE) and you'll soon be agreeing with me<br />

that this is the simplest and most effective way of earning a living from the internet.<br />

Good luck! Ian Stables<br />

had a wild ride while attempting to interview Adam,<br />

You<br />

explain.<br />

please<br />

I consciously decided that I needed an interview with<br />

Once<br />

I started to attend his concerts, even if they were in<br />

Adam<br />

I traveled to England many times, but on one occasion<br />

England.<br />

went overnight just to see a concert. Aside from Adam I had to<br />

I<br />

up some celebrity credibility, so I began to write for<br />

build<br />

magazines and cover stories all over the world. I<br />

international<br />

my career interviewing Leonard Nimoy from Star Trek<br />

started<br />

I was also a fan girl of. Later I went to owning a gay bar<br />

who<br />

encountered experiences you just wouldn't believe. Because<br />

and<br />

that I wound up writing for Get Out <strong>Magazine</strong> and nearly<br />

of<br />

star wants an LGBTQ fan base. Within the book they<br />

every<br />

unbelievable stories which as I wrote them, I still<br />

were<br />

did journalism cause you to open up one of the coolest<br />

How<br />

companies, "World Star PR", on the planet?<br />

PR<br />

and my very cool superstar partner Jimmy Star had more<br />

Myself<br />

to the press than anyone we knew. Jimmy hosts the<br />

connections<br />

Internet television/radio show on Earth called "The<br />

biggest<br />

Star Show with Ron Russell", with 5 million weekly<br />

Jimmy<br />

He and myself had never gotten paid for our endeavors,<br />

viewers.<br />

we decided we needed to eat and also we wish to help Indie<br />

and<br />

and celebrities rise without paying the extraordinary high<br />

artists<br />

of the usual publicist. I met Jimmy and his husband Ron<br />

fees<br />

appearing on his show and we became instant friends.<br />

while<br />

we have established one of the least expensive, yet<br />

Together<br />

there she traveled several continents collecting interviews for<br />

From<br />

such as HuffPost, Louder Than War, and eventually 50 other<br />

<strong>Magazine</strong>s<br />

profiled visual material media.....Many of her friends and<br />

high<br />

will find themselves mentioned in "Waiting For Adam."<br />

acquaintances<br />

the idea came from Adam's publicist Lee Runchey who suggested<br />

Originally<br />

almost as a joke. Although things didn't end well between us, she was<br />

it<br />

responsible for me procuring the interview finally with Adam.<br />

still<br />

the meantime, I had all of these conversations that I had collected from<br />

In<br />

amazing celebrities mostly through Get Out <strong>Magazine</strong> and felt the need<br />

these<br />

compile them in a book. I felt that they gave me their time and deserved<br />

to<br />

was/am a fan girl. I celebrated Adam in the 80's and followed his<br />

I<br />

until he disappeared for 17 years. Then suddenly he re-emerged<br />

music<br />

than ever. I had 3 bucket list rockers that I wished to<br />

better<br />

and Adam was on the top of that list. Aside from that, from<br />

interview<br />

journalistic point of view I knew he was a fabulous interview from<br />

a<br />

ones that were previously done with him.<br />

reading<br />

the company I've made life long friends including<br />

Through<br />

photographer Billy Hess, who has become my partner in<br />

celebrity<br />

the very kind and spiritual Scott Page from Pink Floyd,<br />

crime,<br />

Peniston, and SohoJohnny a client who is one of the greatest<br />

CeCe<br />

I love writing and learning about people. I also love<br />

Absolutely.<br />

to cool events and Red Carpet extravaganzas. I also love my<br />

going<br />

which include some of the kindest and most interesting<br />

clients<br />

in life.<br />

humans<br />

course.....I have interviewed 2 of the people on my list which<br />

Of<br />

the way is Rick Springfield and Adam.... however the last<br />

What genre would you consider your music?<br />

Whatever the fans call it. I’m hoping it will be alt rock w/pop<br />

influence but right now the fans mostly call it that shit they<br />

haven’t heard of.<br />

Soooo INDIE?<br />

What influenced "Doves of War?"<br />

Well the dove traditionally means “peace” and is even a<br />

symbol of Christ in Christianity. I figure maybe people are<br />

focusing on the positive or glossing over the end of the Book<br />

because things like the four horsemen and rivers of blood<br />

seem unpeaceful and yet, there is the Great Dude smacking<br />

fools with the Sword of Truth to Destroy All Nations.<br />

So, I’m not sure if that is what doves of war means but it is<br />

what it makes me ponder.<br />

Is there a song on the album that you are most proud of<br />

and why?<br />

I like the solos on “Step Into The Shadows” and “Quality Time<br />

For Two”. I favor the way “Nations Of Runaways” seems like it<br />

has started then smashes you. Obviously, Andi is the Queen of<br />

Hooks and she doesn’t disappoint on tunes like “I am the Beat”<br />

as in the great I AM the Beat or “Step Into The Shadows”. My<br />

favorite THING about the album is that I followed no<br />

template, no guide, I had the greatest love I have ever known<br />

challenging me to take the path no one treads screaming,<br />

running full speed, and naked so I went strange places. Only<br />

self-produced albums have this level of freedom I guess.<br />

I had to learn to play guitar for it and I like that now also.<br />

If the planet ever opens up again will there be a tour to<br />

support the album?<br />

I’m pretty sure that so long as there are empty movie theaters<br />

with 4k screens we might not even need to wait for the world.<br />

How cool would it be to play a live show to the Las Vegas strip<br />

on the giant screens they advertise with or even drive ins<br />

where we see who can bring the best car speakers while we<br />

broadcast from the stage under the screen and port the video<br />

up to the theater canvas?<br />

How to Mourn Your Old Normal and Adapt to The<br />

New(NewsUSA) – Deaths from the novel coronavirus<br />

COVID-19 have surpassed 110,000 in the United States<br />

and mourning the losses of these lives is important.<br />

In addition, we are also mourning lost habits and<br />

ways of life that are casualties of the<br />

coronavirus.Going out with friends, hugging a<br />

grandparent, even opening a door in a public place<br />

are on hold. Some of these changes were temporary.<br />

However, even as states begin to open up, changes in<br />

how we interact with each other and the world will<br />

likely continue for far longer."We need to grieve the<br />

ways of life we have lost," according to William<br />

Glover, Ph.D., president of the American<br />

Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA)."Mourning is<br />

hard work," Sigmund Freud once wrote in his essay,<br />

"Mourning and Melancholia." What makes mourning<br />

so hard is having to give up attachments – whether to<br />

people or to a way of life – that can’t be replaced.<br />

Letting go of what we have lost helps us move on<br />

with our lives, although we will always miss the<br />

people, places, and things we have lost; in that sense<br />

mourning can never be complete.Mourning and grief<br />

are an important part of coping with loss and<br />

essential in managing changes and accepting new<br />

realities. Recognizing that our pre-COVID lives may<br />

never return is a loss to be mourned, and the work<br />

involved in this mourning can help us move on and<br />

into the new reality. However, some people struggle<br />

with the process more than others, and resist by<br />

responding with illusions of control, refusing to take<br />

precautions, and showing contempt for politicians<br />

and public health officials who try to explain the<br />

changing realities of daily life.<br />

In an article post on APsaA’s Psychology Today<br />

blogsite, psychotherapist Shelley Galasso Bonanno,<br />

MA, LLP, writes, "Each person processes and<br />

expresses grief in their own individual ways, yet<br />

there is comfort and power in understanding that<br />

one is not alone during this pandemic." One way<br />

to cope with grief is by finding meaning in the<br />

present situation, although how one does so may<br />

be different for everyone.Yet finding meaning is<br />

different for everyone. For some, it may mean<br />

providing food or assistance to a homebound<br />

neighbor, making masks for members of their<br />

community, or even donating money to help<br />

beloved organizations and venues stay afloat.<br />

Others may find meaning by expressing their<br />

emotions and reflecting on them with a<br />

therapist.Undoubtedly, there will be new ways to<br />

maintain relationships, enjoy life, and participate<br />

in activities with family and friends. Meanwhile,<br />

being able to tolerate the pain of grief and find<br />

meaning helps sustain us in difficult times.The<br />

American Psychoanalytic Association has created<br />

a resource page for the public and mental health<br />

providers with resources to help cope with anxiety<br />

and grief during this global<br />

pandemic.Visit apsa.org/coronavirus for articles<br />

and videos and information on how to find a<br />

psychotherapist near you.<br />
