New Book Release - AGING: WARNING - Navigating Life's Medical, Mental & Financial Minefields, by Sharon Sebastian

AGING: WARNING - Navigating Life's Medical, Mental & Financial Minefields, by Sharon Sebastian, faults a failed Government and Care Industry in this highly Explosive Exposé.

Sarasota, FL, USA (October 29, 2015) -- Guerilla journalist, Sharon Sebastian, writes a timely and prescient book with shocking insights about aging in America.

"Make no mistake; aging in America is warfare. Families suffer, lives are lost prematurely, and incomes are under siege." - Sharon Sebastian, Author

Sharon Sebastian's "AGING: WARNING - Navigating Life's Medical, Mental & Financial Minefields" is a take-no-prisoners exposé about the malfeasance of government and the multi-billion dollar elder care industry. Families, seniors, and veterans must not attempt to maneuver the minefields of medical or elder care without being armed with this book. Sebastian warns, "Families need to know what they don't know."

Embedded for years within the elder care system from hospitals to nursing homes, Sebastian uncovers a system that is deeply flawed and a liability to the future of the American family. A multi-year investigation reveals that seniors and their families are both targets and casualties of a profit-driven care industry and culpable State and Federal governments.

Input from top experts from various fields is coupled with insider knowledge on how families may remain safe, sane, and solvent. Patients and families demanded that "the truth must be told." First-hand investigations give vital insight to the rapidly increasing numbers of families who "need to know."

Sharon Sebastian witnessed it, researched it, and now shares it as she openly warns about the perils of aging in her fight for the rights and protections of all Americans. Charting a path for change, Sebastian sets a course for redirection at a time critical to America's future.

TPConnects' First Airline Customer Now Live with IATA NDC with the Latest Publication of the NDC Standard

The aggregator and booking tool with NDC standard will change the way air travel is retailed by giving travel agents the capability to access features and options typically available only through airline websites.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (October 29, 2015)
-- TPConnects, a technology solution provider to the global trade today confirmed that its Travel Aggregator platform based on IATA NDC's XML-based data transmission standard is now live for its first airline customer in United Arab Emirates.

The announcement of the first airline delivering live transaction with IATA NDC standard in Africa and Middle East region was made by IATA's Director General and CEO, Tony Tyler, during the IATA Middle East and Africa Aviation day in Abu Dhabi, UAE on 27th October.

By adapting the NDC Standard and using TPConnects platform, the airline will be able to differentiate its products and services, distribute the entirety of the product portfolio, including ancillaries and promotional fares, present the airline's products in an attractive manner using rich format like photos and videos, expand the amount of information available on each product: attributes, facilities, policies, passenger reviews etc. and offer value-added products and services when applicable in addition to other non-air product offerings like hotels, cars, activities, event and concert tickets and insurance.

Kristine Fernandez, Director Business Development at TPConnects said; 'We are glad that our first airline customer went live with IATA NDC. With the airline industry under extreme financial pressure, stiff competition, consumers grow increasingly tech-savvy and mobile, TPConnects booking and distribution tool with NDC standard assist airlines to adopt a merchandising strategy that not only takes the need of travelers into account, but also achieves the main goal of airline to increase its profits and shift from a service provider to a retailer.

With TPConnects aggregator platform, travel agents are now able to search, compare and sell all the products and services of the airline including ancillaries and non-air products such as hotels, car, activities and insurance. With volume business, airlines are now able to negotiate better rates from the non-air product suppliers which will eventually benefit the end customers. Alternatively, the switch model enables the travel agents to plug their own credentials and contracted rates from suppliers.

TPConnects is using IATA NDC standard to connect to many airlines, and GDS's to receive up-to-the-minute flight availability, pricing and offers, both bundled and unbundled.

TPConnects merchandising solution let airlines create and distribute tailored customer offerings.

New Book Release - Anything for Amelia, by Andrew C. Branham

Anything for Amelia, by Andrew C. Branham, tells a horrific adoption story of fraud and abuse.

Jackson, MI, USA (October 29, 2015) -- Andrew C. Branham's Anything for Amelia is a true story of the challenges endured by two gay men who had the desire to adopt a child. Consistently ranked in the top 100 on Amazon. All FIVE Star Reviews!

When Andrew and DJ decided to adopt and bring a child into their lives, little did they know what they were about to endure; yet never did the thought cross their minds to give up. The horrific, pitilessly, and beyond comprehensible hoops one women would make them jump through demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that little Amelia was going to be much better off in the loving home that Drew and DJ could provide her. Just when you think, how can two people survive such a nightmare and the journey is just about over when little Amelia is born and will be safely in the arms of her loving dads, Sandi decides to pull one more shenanigan that could change their lives forever.

More than 10 million adults have been adopted or fostered in their childhood. Along with spiraling increases in adoptions comes a growing need to disclose the significant flaws in adoption laws that open the doors to fraud, manipulation, and abuse of the system. AMELIA is the first book to explore this dark side of the adoption process through the true story of one couple's journey through hell. Called "the most difficult adoption in U.S. history" by adoption experts, the book appeals to nearly all families (traditional and non-traditional) interested in adoption, foster parenting, or surrogacy. An amazing book filled with tips, advice, and eye-opening first-hand accounts, this is one feel-good story that serves an important purpose and fills a critical gap in adoption literature. - D. J. Herda

Common throughout the reviews - "A must read!, Intriguing, I was sad and needed to stop for many tissues, Shocking Story, Eye opening, Awesome, Loved, Great, Heart-breaking, Touching, Beautiful, ..." This book is the type of book you will not put down until you're done, and even at that point you will want to re-read it.
