Talking THE SLOW MIDNIGHT ON CYPRESS AVENUE by Mike Figliola
So, who are these irregular regulars of Cypress Avenue?
Set over the course of one Sunday, The Slow Midnight on Cypress Avenue is a collection of interconnected vignettes that takes the reader through the streets and across sidewalks of Cypress Avenue—an unkempt afterthought, just a place that sits at the neighborhood border edge of Ridgewood Queens, NY.
The three-part book—broken into Morning, Afternoon, and Night—introduces you to the irregular regulars of the human race.
There is the soft and strange relationship between the eccentric Samuel Jean and a young girl of Puerto Rican descent named Desponda “Dezzy” Rivera. There’s “Old” Goldie Samuels, a washed-up relic who spends her days spinning yarns and getting free drinks at the local liquor store. But the story is truly centered on Corporal Benjamin Zogby, a veteran who spends his days alone on his stoop watching the bus go by and wishing his love would return to him. It’s his tragic fate that sends the avenue and the other inhabitants you’ll meet—Earl the fisherman, Father John White, among others—into an unstoppable tailspin toward unexpected change and inner destruction.
“I spent five seasons in Queens, NY, prowling center field of Shea Stadium. Mike Figliola captures the heartbeat of NYC better than any book I know.” —Lenny Dykstra, New York Times Bestselling Author of House of Nails

Green Love Talk with Christina Stevens about LOVE: THE SAINT AND THE SEEKER
This journey to LOVE: THE SAINT AND THE SEEKER began in 1992 at the Rio+20 Summit.
"As l learned more about the environment and the health of the planet, I got more active. In June 2012, I was part of a 40,000 person delegation of parliamentarians, mayors, UN officials, CEO’s and civil society leaders, more than 50 heads of state and close to 500 ministers for the Rio+20 Summit on Sustainable Development. 700 commitments for $513 billion were pledged to build a sustainable future for the planet earth.
While at the summit, I spoke of my search for a land that was doing it right; a sustainable global model. Many years earlier, I found myself called to the Kingdom of Bhutan. I feel in love with an ancient land of Kings and Queens, beloved by their people."
Christina Stevens also serves on the Board of Directors of Ted Turner’s Captain Planet Foundation whose mission is to give the next generation of environmental stewards an active understanding and love for the natural world in which they live. Its unique program of funding and support of hands-on environmental projects is designed to encourage innovative initiatives that inspire and empower youth around the world as they work individually and collectively creating environmental solutions in their homes, schools and communities.
Much like her journey to meet and film Mother Teresa, big dreams start small, such as being more green and adopting more sustainable practices in one’s life. Yet no change can come about without a vision. That vision needs passion to ignite it and action to bring it into reality. Sometimes merely focusing on an idea, thinking it through and sharing it gives it life, power and momentum.

Doctor Ginger Talks Eating Healthy for Medicine
Ok. When I go to a doctor, part of me just does not want to listen. However, when Dr. Ginger says something I Will Listen (or drool). Dr. Ginger is the reining Mrs. Virginia U.S. 2013 and will be competing in the Mrs. United States Pageant July 27-31 in Las Vegas. Her platform is B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe) teen safe driving program started by her husband in 2008 after his 2 sons, Jon and James, were killed in a tragic car accident. To date, B.R.A.K.E.S. has put over 10,000 teens through the safe driving program.
The doctor wrote the nutrition & mind-body chapters in the N.Y.Times Best Seller, “Crazy Sexy Cancer Survivor;” a book written by one of her students. I need to check out that book!
Dr. Ginger has been:
Director of Corporate Wellness for Bruton Smith’s Sonic Automotive and Speedway Motorsports (NASCAR racetracks)
Director of Nutritional Wellness for The Cliffs Communities
Spa Director for The Trump Spa at Mar-a-lago, Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Fla.
Since then, Dr. Ginger has devoted her professional life to public health education. She helped to develop the first policy for the “Surgeon General’s Report on Physical Activity & Health for Women,” and today she continues as a consumer health advocate, using her intimate knowledge of the human body, physiology, biochemistry, nutrition, and preventive and alternative medicine to weave together meaningful disease-busting consumer education information through her magazine articles, TV appearances and speaking engagements nationwide.
