Inspirational Speaker Gary Bradt to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LELAND, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 / — As human beings we thrive on predictability, but when new technology disrupts an industry, how do organizations keep going?

Gary Bradt is an inspirational speaker on change and leadership, helping organizations all over the world build their change resilience muscle by teaching them to prepare and train for change.

“I understand what organizations are going through, no matter the industry, because change impacts everybody,” says Gary. “That's why my passion has been helping people adapt to change faster and better, because change is hard. My passion is to help make it easier.”

We resist change and they resist it for good reason. Gary works with senior executives and their teams at the intersection of people and business to help them understand that change is hard because it's hard.

“Trying to get someone to embrace change is like saying, ‘Hey, hug that porcupine,’” says Gary. “I know it’s not going to be too comfortable, but we still need to hug the porcupine. So I'm going to get you ready to hug that porcupine. I'm going to show you how to train, prepare, build your strength, build your endurance. I want you to feel confident that no matter what gets thrown in your way, you can deal with it. I try to help people prepare and build their strength for endurance for change, not try to get them to love it.”

With a background in clinical psychology, Gary offers insights informed by science and delivered with heart.

“I'm going to use research from positive psychology and whatever else is going to help you,” says Gary. “I've been a business owner myself now for more than 20 years and consulting with senior leaders for 30 years.”

Gary says one of the most effective ways to navigate change is to focus on the things that never change: your values.

“Your values are your compass,” says Gary. “They're going to point you in the right direction, not necessarily an easy direction, but the right direction. And you know what change can do to that? Nothing.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Gary Bradt in an interview with Jim Masters on November 4th at 12pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

If you have any questions for our guest, please call (347) 996-3389.

Highly Anticipated New Political Thriller, "The Salvation Project," to Launch at National Press Club's Annual Book Fair

Book Life Calls It “Memorable”

Is It Real, Or Is It Fantasy

Rothstein takes high stakes political espionage to a very contemporary, credibly scary, and absolutely addictive level.”

— Pacific Reviews

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 30, 2019 / — One hundred authors will be on hand at the National Press Club Friday, November 1, for the Club's annual Book Fair. Money raised at the event supports the Club's Journalism Institute and its advocacy for freedom of the press. Doors open to the public for the annual gala at 5:30 p.m.

Among the literary offerings will be Joe Rothstein's highly anticipated new political thriller, "The Salvation Project." Pacific Reviews says "The Salvation Project" conjures memories of great past thrillers, Richard Condon's "Manchurian Candidate," and Steven King's "Dead Zone." But Pacific Reviews adds, "Far from simply imitating those books, Rothstein takes high stakes political espionage to a very contemporary, credibly scary, and absolutely addictive level."

Rothstein's earlier political thriller, "The Latina President and The Conspiracy to Destroy Her," introduced Isabel Aragon Tennyson–"Tenny"–a charismatic Mexican-American heiress as U.S. President. Tenny is back in the "Salvation Project," this time confronted by a more ruthless international conspiracy with a literally killer agenda that would change America forever.

"The Salvation Project" will go on sale generally November 3.

"I'm really pleased that the National Press Club selected 'The Salvation Project,' as one of literary works featured in the Book Fair," said Rothstein. "Support for freedom of the press is vital at any time, and particularly now, when it is under such intense assault in so many parts of the world. Fearless, enterprising journalism has never been more important

Jeffrey D. Hatchell, Speaker and Leadership Coach, Explains the "Fly on the Wall" Concept related to Executive Presence

Jeffrey D. Hatchell, Established Author and Motivational Speaker

"Factors to consider that can help you better influence what would be stated about you when you're not in the room" – Jeffrey D. Hatchell

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2019 / — Have you ever said or heard the phrase, “I wish I could be a fly on the wall?” You know those high impact meetings that you’re not attending but wish you could? Having the desire to listen in on what’s being said? How about a work discussion in which you knew they would be talking about you, but you’re not invited? The idea is that it would be nice to be able to hear what’s being said about us when we’re not around. Generally, we understand people may not feel as comfortable telling us exactly what they think of us. Recall Jack Nicholson’s (Colonel Jessup) famous line in the movie, A Few Good Men. “You can’t handle the truth!”

Jeffrey D. Hatchell, an established author and motivational speaker, refers to this as the “Fly on the Wall” concept. He says that this occurs because people constantly want to know what is being said of them when they aren’t within earshot. “I’ll outline factors to consider that can help set you up to better influence what would be stated about you when you’re not attending a meeting in which they will be discussing you,” explains Jeffrey D. Hatchell, “it’s about first recognizing who you really are, deciding how you want to be perceived, obtaining an assessment of your current status and being willing to get on a growth plan to improve in the areas identified as opportunities.”

Hatchell is a certified executive coach, a corporate facilitator and a motivational speaker. He focuses on leadership development through executive coaching, team building workshops and motivational speaking. His company “Over the Top Coaching” won the prestigious award of Supplier of the Year by the Northern California Supplier Development Council. He has more than 20 years of experience working at Fortune 500 organizations in sales management and leadership roles, including working as Director of Sales Performance with American Express. Recently, his book “The Inspired Career” ( has been making waves in online communities wanting to improve communication in the workplace.

The first step towards combatting “Fly on the Wall” is to recognize who you really are, according to the acclaimed speaker. “I understand that most of us may feel like we know ourselves since we’ve been ourselves our whole lives,” continues Jeffrey D. Hatchell, “however, what I mean is to gain insights by leveraging assessments to better understand our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to our career or business. People can use assessments like a 360s, Myers Briggs and Strength Finder to discover these results.”

360 assessments can uncover blind spots about ourselves that we may not know exist but everyone else does. Myers Briggs helps you to better understand your personality and work style preferences, so you can leverage it. This will help you to appreciate if you’re an introvert or extravert and to what extent. Strength Finder helps you to identify your strengths and how to use them to your advantage. This is all about learning your strong suits and to work on developing them.

The next step is to decide how you want to be perceived. “I understand that most of us want to be perceived as high performing, results oriented, analytical, over achievers,” states Jeffrey D. Hatchell, “we all want to get the highest performance ratings and be known for driving results in innovative ways. However, many do not ‘act the part.’ In other words, if you want to be perceived as a high performing leader who has great followership, what are you doing on a daily basis to make that a reality.”

The final step is to assess how you’re currently perceived. “One of the best things we can do to “be as we wish to seem” is to get an assessment,” concludes Jeffrey D. Hatchell, “I already highlighted several tools earlier that can help. Another simpler way is to ask for feedback. Identify influential people in your life who can help provide you with insights. Ask them for direct feedback or you can identify critical areas for you. I suggest you first assess yourself then to compare your results with the others to identify blind spots. Your job is to identify where you are versus where you desire to be. Then create a growth plan to begin to close the gap so you can be perceived as you desire to be.”


**As a motivational speaker, Hatchell inspires others to maximize their full potential. He is a sought-after speaker who has done key-notes and motivational talks to some of the following organizations: the National Black MBA Association, National Association of Hispanic MBAs, Institute for Supply Chain Management, Google, AT&T, Chevron and The Clorox Company. He has provided leadership workshops to Bayer, Applied Materials, PG&E, Kaiser, Johnson & Johnson, American Express, Wells Fargo, Safeway, Comcast, Amgen, Panasonic, Genentech and many others.

Hatchell received his Masters of Business Administration degree from Nova Southeastern University and a Bachelor of Business Administration in marketing degree from Howard University. In addition, he completed UCLA Anderson School of Management, Management Development Program for Entrepreneurs where his business improvement plan was highlighted on UCLA’s website as a best in class.

Graffiti Artist Arman Izadi and Team Bring Fortnite to Life and Engage in Epic Nerf Battle!

Armani Izadi Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2019 / — Las Vegas graffiti artist, Arman Izadi, is known for his meticulous talent and creative streak. Apart from his artistic endeavors, the businessman has all but transformed the corporate world by moving the needle for companies through his acumen in business development, innovative media and event production. Izadi has also powered some of the biggest nightclubs in the world from Hollywood to Macau.

Recently, the artist took on the social media scene with his #GraffitiMansion project. Armani Izadi has emblazoned his 6,000 square foot Las Vegas mansion multiple times with awe-inspiring murals in Christmas, Halloween and Fortnite themes.

Honing his philanthropic side, the artist has also painted his mansion to draw awareness to the 2017 Vegas shooting and to raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club in Nevada.

In May 2018, Armani Izadi decided to show off his fun side by giving his mansion a top-to-bottom makeover in tribute to Fortnite. Izadi and his team of artists from around the world worked tirelessly on the Fortnite art installation – one of the biggest in the world, documenting the entire process on the artist’s YouTube channel. Arman Izadi began the video with his signature catchphrase, but this time it was charged with a different kind of excitement.

“People keep asking me, ‘what’s the deal?’” the artist says in the video, letting out a mock evil laugh, “I’m thinking it’s a big deal.”

The project even had a Fortnite bus suspended from a hot air balloon hovering over the mansion just like in the game. As a testament to their dedication, the crew built a replica of the titled towers and held an epic Nerf battle!

The mansion itself boasted of popular Fortnite skins; Crackshot, Love Ranger, Raven, Dark Voyager, and Leviathan among others could be seen engaging in combat across the massive edifice. Arman Izadi also sprawled his socials on the installation alongside stylized lettering; “Fortnite Graffiti Mansion” “#BoogieDown” and “Battle Royale”.

Armani Izadi showed his appreciation for acclaimed internet personality and gamer Tyler Blevins “Ninja” whose rise to fame is intertwined with Fortnite. In fact, he is often considered the unofficial face of the game. The artist painted Ninja’s likeness in Fortnite combat gear among the other characters. This didn’t go unnoticed by the gamer, who gave the project a shout out to his over 7-million follower base.

“Thi is super well done,” Ninja said when reacting to the installation. “Great job, honestly, I’d love to meet you and your team someday. When I see all these amazing murals I feel like Fortnite is becoming bigger than a game. It’s awesome.”

Panda Viva Clothing partnered with the Graffiti Fortnite Mansion and announced a new line of apparel; socks, backpacks, and t-shirts were released to commemorate the project.

For Armani Izadi, the road is only just beginning. His talents have taken the social media world by storm, opening multiple doors for him and his team. Having worked with industry heavyweights like Jake and Logan Paul, Jojo Siwa and Faze Rug, the businessman has taken his business to staggering new heights.

Arman Izadi plans to use his influence to bring awareness to worthy causes and help people embrace the transformative power of art. For now, the artist is excited about several new projects in the pipeline and, as always, has his eye on the horizon for the next big adventure.

தேர்தலில் எந்த ஒரு சிங்கள வேட்பாளருக்கும் வாக்களிக்கும் படி எமது விரலால் சுட்டிக் காட்ட முடியாது-நீதியரசர் விக்னேஸ்வரன்

C,V. Wigneswaran

தமிழ் மக்களின் நியாயமான 13 அம்சக் கோரிக்கைகள் தொடர்பாக பிரதான சிங்களக் கட்சிகள் எம்முடன் பேசக் கூடத் தயாராக இல்லை.

எமது நியாயமான 13 அம்சக் கோரிக்கைகள் தொடர்பாக கலந்துரையாடக் கூட விரும்பாத வேட்பாளருக்கு வாக்களிக்குமாறு கேட்கும் தார்மீக உரிமை எந்த ஒரு தமிழ் கட்சிக்கும் இல்லை என்பதே எமது நிலைப்பாடாகும்.”

— நீதியரசர் விக்னேஸ்வரன்

JAFFNA , SRI LANKA, October 30, 2019 / —

ஜனாதிபதி தேர்தல் தொடர்பில் தமிழ் மக்கள் கூட்டணியின் நிலைப்பாடு

நேற்றைய தினம் திங்கட் கிழமை வடக்கு கிழக்கு பல்கலைக்கழக மாணவர்களால் ஒழுங்கு செய்யப்பட்ட 5 கட்சிகளின் கூட்டம் யாழ்ப்பாணத்தில் நடைபெற்ற பின்னர் அந்தக் கூட்டத்தில் கலந்து கொண்ட எமது கட்சியின் பிரதிநிதிகளுடன் கலந்துரையாடிய பின்னர் கீழ்வரும் தீர்மானங்களை எமது கட்சியின் நிலைப்பாடாக எடுத்து எமது நிலைப்பாட்டை பதின்மூன்று அம்சக் கோரிக்கைகளை முன் வைத்த ஏனைய நான்கு கட்சிகளுக்கும் பல்கலைக்கழக மாணவர்களுக்கும் பொது மக்களுக்கும் காலந்தாழ்த்தாது தெரியப்படுத்துகின்றோம்.

தேர்தலில் எந்த ஒரு சிங்கள வேட்பாளருக்கும் வாக்களிக்கும் படி எமது விரலால் சுட்டிக் காட்ட முடியாது.

கடந்தகால வரலாற்றையும் தற்போதைய அக, புற சூழ்நிலைகளையும் கருத்தில் எடுத்து மக்கள் தமது ஜனநாயக உரித்தைப் பயன்படுத்த வேண்டும்.

ஜனாதிபதி தேர்தல் நடைபெறுவதற்கு ஏறத்தாழ இரண்டு வாரங்களே இருக்கின்ற நிலையிலும் நாளை மறுதினம் தபால் மூலம் வாக்களிப்பு நடைபெற இருக்கும் வேளையிலும் வடக்கு கிழக்கில் வாழும் தமிழ் மக்கள் தமது வாக்குகளை அளிப்பது தொடர்பில் தமிழ் மக்கள் கூட்டணியின் நிலைப்பாட்டை தெளிவுபடுத்தும் நோக்கில் பின்வரும் கருத்துக்களை வெளியிடுகின்றோம்.

யாழ்ப்பாணம் மற்றும் கிழக்கு மாகாண பல்கலைக்கழக மாணவர்களின் அனுசரணையுடன் ஆறு அரசியல் கட்சிகளை ஒன்றிணைத்து தொடர்ச்சியான கலந்துரையாடல்களின் பின்னர் 13 கோரிக்கைகளை உள்ளடக்கிய ஆவணம் ஒன்றைத் தயாரித்திருந்தோம். அந்த ஆவணத்தில் ஐந்து கட்சிகள் ஒப்பமிட்டு முக்கிய ஜனாதிபதி வேட்பாளர்களுக்கு அதன் பிரதியும் மொழி பெயர்ப்பும் அனுப்பி வைக்கப்பட்டன.

ஒற்றை ஆட்சி முறைமையை நிராகரித்து இணைந்த வடக்கு – கிழக்கில் சுய நிர்ணய உரிமையின் அடிப்படையில் இனப்பிரச்சினைக்கு தீர்வு காண வேண்டும் என்ற தமிழ் மக்களின் நீண்டகால அரசியல் கோரிக்கை இந்த ஆவணத்தில் வலியுறுத்தப்பட்டுள்ளது. அத்துடன் உடனடியாக மேற்கொள்ள வேண்டிய பொருளாதார மற்றும் மனிதாபிமான நடவடிக்கைகளையும் இந்த ஆவணம் வலியுறுத்தியுள்ளது.

தமிழ் மக்கள் சார்பில் முன்வைக்கப்பட்ட இந்த 13 அம்சக் கோரிக்கைகளையும் ஜனாதிபதித் தேர்தல் வேட்பாளர்கள் பரிசீலிக்கவேண்டும் என்றும் அவற்றை நிறைவேற்றுவது தொடர்பில் அவர்களுடன் பேசுவதற்கு தயாராக இருப்பதாகவும் நாம் அறிவித்திருந்தோம். ஆனால், எந்த பிரதான கட்சிகளின் முக்கிய சிங்கள ஜனாதிபதி வேட்பாளருமே இந்தக் கோரிக்கைகளின் அடிப்படையில் எம்முடன் பேசுவதற்கு முன்வரவில்லை. நாம் எமது கோரிக்கைகளை உத்தியோகபூர்வமாக திரு.சிரிதுங்க ஜயசூரிய என்ற சிங்களப் போட்டியாளருக்கு அனுப்பாதபோதும் எமது கோரிக்கைகள் நியாயமானவை என்றும் தாம் அவற்றை ஏற்றுக் கொள்வதாகவும் பத்திரிகை வாயிலாக அறிவித்துள்ளார். ஒரு சிங்கள வேட்பாளர் எமது கோரிக்கைகள் நியாயமானவை என்று கூறியிருப்பது மன மகிழ்வைத் தருகின்றது.

பொதுவாகத் தமிழ் மக்களின் மிகவும் நியாயமான இந்தக் கோரிக்கைகளை சிங்கள மக்கள் மத்தியில் எடுத்து சென்று தமிழ் மக்களின் உரிமைகள், பிரச்சினைகள், துன்பங்கள் மற்றும் துயரங்களை எடுத்துக்கூறி இலங்கைத்தீவில் நிலையான சமாதானத்தை ஏற்படுத்தி ஒரு சுபீட்சமான எதிர்காலத்தை உருவாக்குவதற்கு ஆற்றலும், ஆளுமையும், துணிச்சலும், தூர நோக்குப் பார்வையும் எந்த ஒரு சிங்கள வேட்பாளருக்குமே இல்லை.

திரு.ஜயசூரிய அவர்கள் இதற்கு விதிவிலக்கு போல் தெரிகின்றார். எது எவ்வாறிருப்பினும் அவர் இதுவரையில் எம்முடன் தொடர்பு கொள்ளவில்லை என்பது குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது. எமது கோரிக்கைகள் தொடர்பில் இனவாதக் கருத்துக்களை முன்வைத்து பேரினவாத சக்திகளைத் திருப்திப்படுத்தி சிங்கள மக்களின் வாக்குகளைப் பெற்றுக்கொள்ளும் ஒரு குறுகிய அரசியலிலே தான் மற்றைய பிரதான சிங்கள வேட்பாளர்கள் அனைவரும் ஈடுபட்டுள்ளார்கள். துரதிஸ்டவசமாக தென் இலங்கையின் தேர்தல் இயக்கவியலும் முற்றுமுழுதாக மகாவம்ச மனோநிலைக்கு உட்பட்டுள்ளது என்று காண்கின்றோம்.

இலங்கை சுதந்திரம் அடைந்த காலம் முதல் ஆட்சிக்கு வந்த எல்லா சிங்களக் கட்சிகளுமே தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு எதிரான அடக்குமுறைகளை கட்டவிழ்த்துவிடுவதில் ஏட்டா போட்டியாகவே செயற்பட்டுவந்திருக்கின்றன. சிங்கள கட்சிகள் எமக்கு அளித்த வாக்குறுதிகளை காற்றில் பறக்கவிடுவதும், உடன்படிக்கைகளைக் கிழித்து எறிவதுமே வரலாறுபூராக நிறைந்து இருந்துள்ளன. இருந்தபோதிலுங் கூட மீண்டும் எமது கோரிக்கைகளை அவர்கள் முன்பாக வைத்து அவற்றை நிறைவேற்றுவது தொடர்பில் கலந்துரையாடுவதற்கான விருப்பத்தை உத்தியோகபூர்வமாக வெளிப்படுத்தியிருந்தோம்.

நாளை மறுதினம் 31 ஆம் திகதி தபால் மூல வாக்களிப்பு தொடங்குகின்றது. ஆனால், எமது இந்த நியாயமான கோரிக்கைகளை பரிசீலனைக்கு உட்படுத்தி எம்முடன் கலந்துரையாடலை மேற்கொள்ள எந்த சிங்கள வேட்பாளரும் இதுவரை தயாராக இல்லை. அத்துடன் நேற்றுத் திங்கட் கிழமை வரை குறிப்பிட்ட ஐந்து தமிழ் கட்சிகளும் கூட ஒரு பொது முடிவுக்கு இதுவரை வரவில்லை என்பதும் கவலைக்குரிய விடயமாகும்.

தமிழ் மக்களின் நியாயமான 13 அம்சக் கோரிக்கைகள் தொடர்பாக பிரதான சிங்களக் கட்சிகள் எம்முடன் பேசக் கூடத் தயாராக இல்லாத சூழ் நிலையில் எந்த ஒரு சிங்கள வேட்பாளருக்கும் வாக்களிக்கும்படி எமது விரலால் சுட்டிக் காட்டுவதற்கான தார்மீக உரிமை எமக்கு இல்லை என்பதே எனதும் எமது கட்சியின் நிலைப்பாடாகும்.

அதேவேளை, ஜனநாயக ரீதியாக தேர்தலில் வாக்களிக்கும் எமது மக்களின் ஜனநாயக உரிமையை நாம் மதிக்கின்றோம். அவ்வுரித்தை எம்மக்கள் பயன்படுத்த விரும்பின் எமது கடந்த கால வரலாறு மற்றும் தற்போதுள்ள அக, புற சூழ்நிலைகளை கவனத்தில் கொண்டு மக்கள் தங்கள் வாக்குகளைப் பயன்படுத்திக்கொள்ள வேண்டும் என்று கருதுகின்றோம்.

எம்மால் முன்வைக்கப்பட்ட 13 அம்சக் கோரிக்கைகளை பிரதான சிங்கள வேட்பாளர்கள் கவனத்தில் கொள்ளாத இத்தகைய சூழ்நிலையில் அவற்றை நாமே கை விட்டு எமது சகோதரக் கட்சிகள் எந்த ஒரு முக்கிய கட்சி வேட்பாளருக்கேனும் களம் அமைத்து, கூட்டங்கள் கூட்டி, வெளிப்படையாக வாக்குக் கேட்க மாட்டார்கள் என நம்புகின்றோம்.

எமது நியாயமான 13 அம்சக் கோரிக்கைகள் தொடர்பாக கலந்துரையாடக் கூட விரும்பாத வேட்பாளருக்கு வாக்களிக்குமாறு கேட்கும் தார்மீக உரிமை எந்த ஒரு கட்சிக்கும் இல்லை என்பதே எமது நிலைப்பாடாகும்.

இந்த ஜனாதிபதி தேர்தலை அணுகும் வகையில், நாம் தயாரித்துள்ள 13 அம்சக் கோரிக்கைகளை பிரதான கட்சிகளின் சிங்கள ஜனாதிபதி வேட்பாளர்கள் கவனத்தில் கொள்ளவில்லை என்றாலும், எமது அரசியல் நடவடிக்கைகளை இந்த கோரிக்கைகளின் அடிப்படையில் நாம் முன்னெடுத்துச் செல்வதில் உறுதியாக உள்ளோம்.

இந்த கோரிக்கைகள் இந்தத் தேர்தலுடன் கைவிடப்பட முடியாத கோரிக்கைகள். தெரிவுசெய்யப்படவுள்ள புதிய ஜனாதிபதியுடனும் அமையவிருக்கும் புதிய பாராளுமன்றத்துடனும் இந்த கோரிக்கைகளின் அடிப்படையில் தீர்வுக்காக நாம் முன்னெடுப்புக்களை மேற்கொள்ளத் தயாராக இருக்கின்றோம்.

அதே வேளை சர்வதேச சமூகம் இனிமேலும் இலங்கை அரசாங்கத்தின் போலி வாக்குறுதிகளுக்கும் ஏமாற்று வித்தைகளுக்கும் ஏமாந்துபோகாமல் தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு எதிரான இனப்படுகொலைக்கு நீதியை பெற்றுகொடுப்பதற்கும் இணைந்த வடக்கு கிழக்கில் சுயநிர்ணய அடிப்படையில் தீர்வினை பெற்று கொடுப்பதற்கும் காத்திரமான நடவடிக்கைகளை எடுக்கவேண்டும் என்று கோரி நிற்கின்றோம்.

Magi Helena, Acclaimed Astrologer, Explains the Truth of Mercury Retrograde Phobia

Magi Helena, Acclaimed Astrologer

Mercury goes retrograde Oct. 31. Does Mercury retrograde really turn things upside down? Maybe yes, maybe no.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2019 / — Mercury goes retrograde Oct. 31. Does Mercury retrograde really turn things upside down? Maybe yes, maybe no.

While social media is full of people who are positive that the computer glitches and miscommunications they experience during Mercury retrograde are caused by Mercury retrograde, what if they’re not? Technically, Jupiter is retrograde about 3 months a year, Neptune about 5 months a year, and so on. However, nobody seems to panic during other planetary retrogrades. In fact, there is almost never one single day when one of the closest planets to Earth is NOT retrograde.

“Both western astrology tradition and Science-Based Astrology research agree that Mercury rules thinking, quick wits, self-expression and communications of all kinds including acting and co-rulership of singing, and travel,” explains Magi Helena, acclaimed astrologer. “If Mercury retrograde caused problems with these areas, we would expect to see that people, companies, and products which were ‘born’ during Mercury retrograde would have Mercury ‘problems’. However, it’s actually the opposite!”

Celebrities ‘born’ during Mercury retrograde include: Adam Levine, Anna Kendrick, Ben Affleck, Ben Stiller, George Lucas, Hugh Jackman, Jeff Bezos, Julia Roberts, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Sir Paul McCartney, Tina Fey. Mercury retrograde companies include Facebook, General Motors, Mercedes-Benz, Microsoft, PayPal, Twitter, UPS, and Verizon.

“All these people and companies are especially talented and successful in Mercury-ruled fields and all have Mercury retrograde. So how could Mercury retrograde really be a kiss of death in these areas of life?” asks Magi Helena. “Mercury retrograde has never been proven to be detrimental. In actual fact, statistical research has proven conclusively that planets in retrograde can actually be MORE powerful and helpful in charts than direct planets. Not always, but most of the time.”

According to Magi Helena, if someone really wants to use the power of the stars to achieve love and success and avoid heartbreak and failure, they will also need to use their own personal cycles to discover when their best windows of opportunity will open, and when challenges and obstacles are more likely. (

If someone is curious to see if Mercury retrograde really causes day-to-day frustrations and problems, they should keep track over a period of time of glitches and miscommunications during Mercury retrograde vs. Mercury direct. Doing so for a year or more will give an accurate sampling. They’ll be more likely to find a higher correlation between day-to-day problems and Universal Worst Days found here, ( than they are to find correlations between problems and Mercury retrograde.

“In Science-Based Astrology we use 6 dimensions of calculation,” concludes Magi Helena. “In the 3 Geocentric dimensions, retrogrades occur. In the 3 Heliocentric dimensions, there are no retrogrades. For accurate answers, we use 20 – 30 or more planets, asteroids and midpoints in all 6 dimensions. A particular planet in retrograde seems far less important seen against this enormous backdrop. The Universal quality of a day, your personal progressions and transits, and careful selection of crucial natalization dates are FAR more important than unsubstantiated retrograde-phobia.”
