California Jury Rejects Abuse Claim Against USA Swimming

A California jury today ruled in favor of USA Swimming in a lawsuit that alleged sexual abuse by a coach of a local swim club.

USA Swimming has worked very hard to develop and institute a comprehensive program to protect its swimmers”

— William Kronenberg, Attorney for USA Swimming

STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA, USA, November 16, 2019 / — A California jury today ruled in favor of USA Swimming in a lawsuit brought by a swimmer who had alleged sexual abuse by a coach of a local Stockton swim club.

The jury of 8 women and 4 men deliberated less than 3 hours before issuing a verdict finding that USA Swimming did not fall below the standard of care, and was not responsible for the conduct of a coach employed by the former Stockton Swim Club.

USA Swimming’s attorney, William Kronenberg, of the Oakland based civil litigation law firm, Kronenberg Law, PC, said the jury’s decision was an important vindication of the organization’s athlete protection program.

“USA Swimming has worked very hard to develop and institute a comprehensive program to protect its swimmers,” said Kronenberg, and this case is the first time a jury was asked to determine whether it met the standard of care for a youth serving organization. The speedy affirmation by the Stockton jury should be welcome news to the thousands of swimmers at the more than 3,200 member clubs throughout the U.S.

According to Kronenberg, “The jury was presented with the entire athlete protection program, from the Code of Conduct, mandatory screening and training of coaches, to educational models for parents and swimmers along with expert testimony which found it met or exceeded the standards necessary for a safe environment.” While no youth serving organization can ever be 100% safe, the jury conclusively found that USA’s program was properly designed, implemented and staffed.

The trial has made headlines following the release of multiple news stories by the swimmer’s attorney, including releasing the deposition transcript of USA Swimming CEO Tim Hinchey, who was hired in July 2017. The swimmer’s attorney has publicly commented on the CEO’s lack of background or training in the prevention of sexual abuse, both prior to and even after the jury rejected those claims.

Kronenberg said that the jury saw right through the argument that a CEO of a national organization should have specialized knowledge about abuse prevention.

“Preventing sexual abuse is a specialized field that requires both extensive education, training and experience, much like that received by members of Child Protective Services, and USA Swimming has a department staffed with equally well trained personnel. Mr. Hinchey does not have that background or training, he is the CEO, not the head of that department,” Kronenberg said.

According to Kronenberg, “The criticism of Mr. Hinchey by opposing counsel is unfair and misguided, but some attorneys prefer trying a case in the media, instead of listening to the message sent by the jury with its verdict.”

New Challenges for Barceló Occidental Cozumel & Barceló Allegro Cozumel

Barceló Occidental Cozumel and Barceló Allegro Cozumel Joint Beach Clean-up

Guest columnist Ricardo Bravo, Quality Manager at the resorts details the latest environmental and social initiatives undertaken by the two properties.

Green Globe certified properties Barceló Occidental Cozumel and Barceló Allegro Cozumel are located on the Mexican island of Cozumel in the Caribbean Sea, home to spectacular coral reefs and marine life.

Guest columnist Ricardo Bravo, Quality Manager at the resorts details the latest environmental and social initiatives undertaken by the two properties that aim to preserve their precious surroundings.

After receiving our Green Globe inaugural certifications at Occidental Cozumel and Allegro Cozumel in April, we have focused on renewing our path and vision regarding sustainability, particularly the new challenges and goals that this recognized accreditation represents.

Cozumel Island is currently experiencing significant changes and a transition towards a sustainable lifestyle that is environmentally compatible with the needs and fragility of the different eco-systems. As a company in a developing nation, we recognize that achieving sustainability is a long road to follow but we believe that providing a solid educational foundation and continuous training in sustainability, for our staff members as well as in the community, are necessary steps for the success of any environmental strategy.

Committed to the long-term wellbeing of Cozumel Island’s society and habitat, we have intensified our work in several fields and are proud to be an active part of the actions and efforts being carried out to transform and conserve our natural environment.

Coral Reef Protection

Recently, Cozumel has faced atypical events such as the massive arrival of sargassum seaweed. The disease spread by “white syndrome” has deeply depleted the biodiversity of the reefs, threatening the quality of the wildlife of the Riviera Maya and its surroundings.

Stringent strategies have been introduced to protect areas that are essential for all tourism activity. Federal authorities have decided to temporarily close the healthiest sections of the reef to visits and scuba diving in order to take the pressure off these very popular areas and prevent the further spread of the disease throughout the corals.

Both Occidental Cozumel and Allegro Cozumel resorts strongly support these conservation measures that raise environmental awareness amongst guests and staff and encourages responsible behavior when visiting these sites. The importance of these preventative actions needs to be highlighted and a focus placed on long-term benefits as it is through educating people about the fragility of these types of eco-systems that change will occur.

Joint Beach Clean-ups

Our Green Team has intensified our participation and involvement in volunteering work in various joint beach clean-ups (Limpieza Masiva). Recent clean-ups with staff members from both properties have been organized focusing on minimizing impacts on the most critical points of the island. Others aim to clear the beaches in preparation for the arrival of nesting sea turtles. Clean-ups are highly gratifying for us as all our staff and their families eagerly take part in them. They are also fun community experiences that educate and foster an appreciation of the beauty of local natural spots.

Working Together for the Future

We currently have the honor of being part of the Cozumel Water Committee, which aims to be a platform to start dialogue and enhance the exchange of information between stakeholders to facilitate a shared consensus on issues regarding the sustainable management of water bodies.

Finally, as there are no rivals or competitors only allies when working for the conservation of our ecosystems, we have increased collaborations with other companies including other hotels, schools, municipal institutions and NGOs.

Michael J. Young, M.D., Wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Novel with Medical Theme- 2019”

“We're honored to include Michael J. Young, M.D into our BoLAA family.” ~Aurora DeRose

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2019 / — Michael J. Young, acclaimed surgeon, wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Novel with Medical Theme- 2019”, according to Aurora DeRose, award coordinator for the Best of Los Angeles Award community.

The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed four years ago and consists of over 5,600 professional members living and working in Southern California. It celebrates the best people, places and things in Los Angeles with a slogan “No Ads. No B.S. Only the Best.”

“The mission of the community is to celebrate the best of Los Angeles, and allow its community members to connect with other members who share the highest standards of quality and integrity,” expresses DeRose. "We're honored to include Michael J. Young into our BoLAA family."

Michael Young spent nearly 30 years as a surgeon while living and practicing medicine in Chicago. Young is currently on the faculty of the Department of Urology at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Within the department, Young is the Director of the Division of Urology Innovation and Technology. He works with bio-engineering and medical students, Urology residents and fellows, as they do their research in developing medical devices and surgical instruments. Young’s involvement in the medical field as a seasoned surgeon and educator led to his first book, "The Illness of Medicine."

"This book is a disturbing and scathing indictment of a system on life support and once you pick it up you won’t be able to put it down," says editor Jack Conaty.

He is the author of a memoir/assessment of the current medical system titled "The Illness of Medicine: Experiences of Clinical Practice." "The Illness of Medicine" examines and reviews how one experiences medical treatment from both sides of the table. The significant obstacles patients endure, as well as the exasperation many of the truly dedicated medical professionals feel, has been assessed. The novel reveals how profit-driven corporations dictate how patient care is now governed while patients have essentially no control and doctors have lost the ability to direct their own profession.

"You will enjoy these penetrating personal insights into the complex, dysfunctional condition of modern medical practice through the eyes of a thoughtful, seasoned practitioner," says Julian Shepard, attorney.

Why Uhive’s Token is More Trusted than Facebook’s Libra

Uhive’s ultra-secure in-app token wallet

Facebook’s Libra is losing confidence fast

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 15, 2019 / — Why Uhive’s Token is More Trusted than Facebook’s Libra

Uhive’s status as a new entry into the social network fray actually bodes well for its accompanying digital currency – Uhive Token. Facebook recently announced Libra, a digital currency causing controversy due to the large user base Facebook has, and the potential nefarious uses of a single currency changing (billions of) hands across the globe. Uhive however, is a new and upcoming social media platform that is learning from Facebook’s Libra and the current situation it’s facing. Large financial platforms and e-commerce such as Visa, Mastercard, Stripe and eBay have recently backed away from Libra. Uhive’s advantage is that it’s an emerging social network, building a user-base around a digital currency instead of the other way around. This means businesses, and users within Uhive will take part in actively shaping the network and the way it uses and incorporates its token.

Uhive has been built from the ground up with the incorporation of a digital currency for purchases on the network, making it a much safer option. Uhive affords the opportunity for people to learn as well as use a digital currency in a social media space safely. With a qualified team in place, Uhive will disrupt the very definition of social media as we know it.

Uhive allows a user to explore 26 different interests in what is called the “Civilized World”. Connecting with like-minded individuals who share the same interest as the user, Uhive also allows for anonymous posting and allows a user to be who they truly want to be.

Additionally, considering Uhive is powered by blockchain technology, it allows the user to make purchases, sales and trades all within the app. For example, if a user has a popular space in the top five interests, the space can be sold (or perhaps even rented) for Uhive tokens. In return, the Uhive tokens can be redeemed on exchanges for any digital or fiat currency.

The Grey World (100% anonymous presence), opens up doors for relationships of all kinds, as well as opportunities for connections, exploration, self-identification and self-expression that’s currently not possible or practical on existing social media. The Grey World offers a platform for like-minded individuals to connect in a judgment free environment, safe from scrutiny. If users want to go on a virtual date, they can purchase flowers from a verified business on Uhive, and deliver them to him or her in the real world, completing the entire transaction from within the security of the app but adding a very real and personal touch to a very private interaction.

Government Must Step Up to End Diaper Need in US Says New Study in January Issue of American Journal of Public Health

The capacity of diaper banks to meet diaper need varies widely across the nation, and is largely dependent upon the philanthropic support of local communities.

Diaper need is every community’s problem…the country’s problem. As this study demonstrates, even the best efforts of the nonprofit sector cannot solve that problem without public sector involvement.”

— Sanjeev Sriram, M.D., MPH

NEW HAVEN, CT, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2019 / — With nearly half the infants and toddlers in the US living in poor and low-wage families—who may struggle to access material basic necessities—federal, state and municipal support is essential to augment nonprofit efforts to combat diaper need, according to a study in the American Journal of Public Health.

Diaper need is the struggle to provide an adequate supply of diapers to keep children clean, dry, and healthy. Previous research has associated diaper need with maternal depression; diaper rash and urinary tract infections; and decreased work hours for parents, because they are turned away by child cares that require them to supply diapers.

The authors documented the impact of hundreds of nonprofits belonging to the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN), which distributed more than 52 million diapers in 2016, and devoted more than a million volunteer hours to the effort. While the diaper distribution programs successfully helped nearly 280,000 children during the time period, collectively, the NDBN diaper distribution programs reached just 4% of the 7 million young children living in families at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.

“Given the harms that we know children and families face from diaper need, this points to a serious public health problem with long lasting impact,” said lead author Kelley E.C. Massengale, Ph.D., MPH.

Previous research conducted by Massengale has demonstrated significant benefits when children receive diapers, including positive changes in parental mental health; improved child health and happiness; increased opportunities to access child care, go to work, and attend school; and the ability to divert household finances toward other material basic needs, including utilities and medical care.

“Diapers have an enormous impact on families,” said Joanne S. Goldblum, CEO of the National Diaper Bank Network and one of the study’s authors. Goldblum also co-authored a 2013 study in the journal Pediatrics that linked diaper need to maternal depression.

“We found that diaper need is a stronger predictor of depressive symptoms than food insecurity,” Goldblum said. “That’s not surprising. There are at least some public programs to help families with food, such as the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). But in most of the country, families with diaper need must rely upon the charity of nonprofits with limited resources.”

Sanjeev Sriram, M.D., MPH, said the American Journal of Public Health study is the latest research pointing out the need for public policy around diaper need. “Past research has shown providing diapers keeps kids healthier and helps parents attend school and work, which of course benefits the family and the community economically,” he said. “Diaper need is every community’s problem, every state’s problem, and the country’s problem. As this study demonstrates, even the best efforts of the nonprofit sector cannot solve that problem without public sector involvement.”

The authors propose a number of policy solutions to end diaper need, including: repeal of sales tax on diapers, the allocation of government resources to establish and expand diaper bank programs, and government assistance directly to families living in poverty.

The capacity of diaper banks to meet diaper need varies widely across the nation, and is largely dependent upon the philanthropic support of local communities. The study found that in more than 14 US states, less than 1% of the diaper need was met by nonprofits. States with the highest percentages of coverage included Rhode Island, Texas and Alabama at 16%, 15%, and 10%, respectively.

The authors cited past studies of diaper bank outcomes that showed significant benefits of providing families with diapers: “Having an adequate diaper supply can have a positive impact on early childhood education participation, parents’ work attendance, the ability to keep scheduled appointments, and opportunities to participate in community events outside the home.”

Anna E. Austin and Lynn H. Comer were also authors.

The National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) is a nationwide nonprofit dedicated to eliminating diaper need in America, by leading a national movement to help meet the basic needs of all babies and their families, including access to clean, dry diapers and other material goods. Founded in 2011 with the support of Huggies®, the network raises national awareness of diaper need (#DiaperNeed) and supports the development and expansion of diaper banks in communities throughout the country. Its active membership includes more than 200 diaper banks, diaper pantries, and food banks located in 50 US states and the District of Columbia. More information on NDBN and diaper need is available at, and on Twitter (@DiaperNetwork), Instagram (@DiaperNetwork) and Facebook (

Lisa Goldenthal, Weight Loss Expert and Author, Explains the Phenomenon Between Walking Patterns and Sleep Quality

Lisa Goldenthal, Personal Trainer and Weight Loss Expert

“The struggle is real,” states Lisa Goldenthal, “insomnia affects tens of millions of Americans each year to varying degrees.”

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2019 / — Taking more steps during the day may be related to better sleep at night, according to an encouraging new study of lifestyle and sleep patterns. The study, which delved into the links between walking and snoozing, suggests that being active can influence how well we sleep, whether we actually exercise or not. Now, Lisa Goldenthal, a Personal Trainer, Weight Loss Expert, and recent winner of the Best of Los Angeles Award for “Best Diet Book – 2019”, shares her thoughts on this interesting phenomenon.

“The struggle is real,” states Lisa Goldenthal, “insomnia affects tens of millions of Americans each year to varying degrees. Studies show that walking as little as three miles a day can promote better sleep. It is best to avoid being active too close to bedtime, however. Exercise reduces stress, and is good for physical well-being, both of which are good for sleep, but it also increases your body’s core temperature, making it tough to drift off.”

A woman of many talents, Lisa Goldenthal is the owner and founder of Lisa G Fitness, which is known as the results-driven wellness retreat, corporate wellness leader, weight loss expert, and fitness expert of choice for people wishing to live a healthier and happier life.

Scientists have long been intrigued and befuddled by the ties between physical activity and somnolence. To most of us, it might seem as if that relationship should be uncomplicated, advantageous and one-way. You work out, grow tired and sleep better that night.

However, the time of day a work-out occurs is equally important. “A recent study found that 7 a.m. workouts improve sleep quality more than late-day exercise,” continues Lisa Goldenthal, “additionally, spending time outside every day might be helpful. Being exposed to natural light by walking outside in the morning helps you develop a strong circadian rhythm, which promotes healthy sleep.”

No matter what, it’s clear that those struggling with recent insomnia symptoms should attempt an exercise routine to see if there any benefits. “The added social benefits of walking with another person could offer an additional boost for your mood, thereby improving sleep,” concludes Lisa Goldenthal, “all the studies show that if you move more you sleep better.”


Utilizing a truly holistic approach to good health, Lisa Goldenthal has now produced real results in her business for more than 20 years. She strongly encourages lowering stress levels to improve overall health, and she relies on nutritional education plus personal training knowledge to help her clients achieve and maintain optimal health. She graduated from UCLA’s renowned Personal Training Program and her proudest accomplishment is her popular fitness DVD entitled “Skinny Jeans Workout.”

Her book, “The Boss Weight Loss: Permanent Weight Loss in Six Easy Steps,” is for those who are tired of starting out each summer trying a new diet trend, only to lose the weight and gain it right back again. The book starts with an education about nutrition, exercise and physical and spiritual health, and ultimately leads to a lifestyle that echoes all these principles.

As a bonus this book also comes with downloadable links to workouts, a cookbook, worksheets and a weight loss meditation.
