Mr. Norgaard’s book traces fifteen years in the saga between Neutrogena International Corportion’s Arne Tali and Lloyd Cotsen as they entertained, negotiated and litigated with and against each other, while building the worldwide Neutrogena brand.

He is a graduate of Stanford University and the Georgetown University Law Center.On Thursday, February 27, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., bestselling author and veteran homicide detective Steve Hodel presents his follow-up investigation into Los Angeles’s Black Dahlia and other serially connected “Lone Woman Murders” from the 1940s — Black Dahlia Avenger II. In this investigative sequel to Black Dahlia Avenger: A Genius for Murder (2003), he identifies the actual Dahlia murder residence and presents hard physical evidence connecting Dr. George Hill Hodel (his father) to evidence found near the body, and a careful deconstruction of the Dahlia myth. Steve Hodel was born and raised in Los Angeles and joined the LAPD in 1963. By 1986, he was Detective III, the highest attainable rank in detectives, received more than 75 commendations and handled over 300 separate murder investigations with one of the department’s highest solve rates. He retired in 1986 and established Hodel Investigations.On Thursday, March 18, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., John Wayne: The Genuine Article will be presented by Michael Goldman and Ethan Wayne. This biography is authorized by John Wayne Enterprises and offers readers a rare glimpse into the life of one of the most iconic movie stars of all time through a treasure trove of memorabilia, stories, and interviews. This book includes John Wayne Enterprises’ collection of never-before-seen letters and telegrams as well as incredibly compelling text from Wayne’s unfinished memoir. Important milestones in the Academy Award-winning actor, director, and producer’s life are also well documented here through anecdotes, photos, and visually rich ephemera. With a foreword by Jimmy Carter and a preface by his son Ethan Wayne, John Wayne: The Genuine Article presents the complete story of how an ordinary man became a top box office draw for six decades, and a larger-than-life icon known simply as the Duke. Michael Goldman is a veteran entertainment-industry journalist and author who contributes regularly to American Cinematographer. He has written six books, including Clint Eastwood: Master Filmmaker at Work. Ethan Wayne, John Wayne’s youngest son, currently is president of Wayne Enterprises, the sole and exclusive steward of the John Wayne brand. Ethan and Michael Goldman both live in Los Angeles, California.More John Wayne insights will be revealed on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. when Scott Eyman talks about his book, John Wayne: The Life and Legend. Eyman has written eleven books, including biographies of Hollywood legends such as John Ford, Cecil B. DeMille and Louis B. Mayer. He has based his book on interviews with John Wayne before his death and more than one hundred interviews with the actor’s family and co-stars. He explores Wayne’s early life with a difficult mother and a feckless father. Eyman makes startling connections to Wayne’s later days as an anti-Communist conservation, his stormy marriages to Latina women and his notorious and long-lived extra-marital affair with Marlene Dietrich. Through it all the author provides a nuanced and sympathetic portrait that is as charming, compelling and complicated as the Duke himself. Scott Eyman is the literary critic for The Palm Beach Post and he lives in West Palm Beach.All programs will take place in the Library’s Barth Community and light refreshments will be available.The concept of One Book, One City originated in Seattle back in 1998 as an entertaining strategy to build community – imagining a huge book group consisting of friends and neighbors, discussing plots and characters, while promoting literacy. Past selections for San Marino’s One Book, One City programs have included Iron River by T. Jefferson Parker, Flower Confidential by Amy Stewart, Samurai’s Garden, by Gail Tsukiyama, The Ragtime Kid by Larry Karp, 2012’s The Sherlockian by Graham Moore, and last year’s Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child by Bob Spitz.Crowell Public Library, 1890 Huntington Drive, San Marino, (626) 300-0777, or visit www.CrowellPublicLibrary.org, or their Facebook and Twitter pages.center_img Literary Arts Friends of Crowell Public Library Present Four Books, One City: Meet the Authors From STAFF REPORTS Published on Thursday, January 2, 2014 | 8:45 pm Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News More Cool Stuff Your email address will not be published.

Karthik Navayan, an Advocate practicing in Hyderabad and contends that “Social Distancing” must be replaced by “Physical Distancing” or “Individual Distancing” or “Safe Distancing” or “Disease Distancing” for purposes of effectuating guidelines  to curb the Coronavirus pandemic. “….direct them to stop using the word “Social Distancing” and start using “Physical Distancing” or “Individual Distancing” or “Safe Distancing” or “Disease Distancing” or any other appropriate word that was used to prevent the similar pandemics that happened earlier in the world, for the better interest of our country, society and to upheld the spirit of the constitution of India” – Letter petition states.Justifying that the phrase is being used indiscriminately by putting on record various advisories issued at the behest of Government authorities, petitioner avers that this could lead to “furthering the existing discriminatory caste based social practices” such as practices of untouchability and shall “lead to caste prejudices against Scheduled Castes & Scheduled Tribes”.Petitioner depicts instances where one such incident by a Telugu artist created a furore for promoting untouchability. He states,”…one of the Telugu cine lyrist who is a non – scheduled caste has made a video of the poem he wrote and in that 1.16 minutes video he asked his non- scheduled community to take pride in being non-scheduled caste and their practices, which are discriminatory towards SC STs, and asked the non- scheduled castes to live proudlyas the entire world is accepting their practices to save people from Coronavirus. The said video has created outrage in the Telugu states and one of the scheduled caste organisations….”Further, petitioner urges that since the WHO has also begun using the phrase “physical distancing”, India must take up the cause immediately and refrain from disseminating the use of “Social Distancing”.Apropos this, the plea emphasises that various experts have strongly condemned the usage of this phrase with the objective of highlighting how its usage “will be shored up as new justifications for caste, untouchability, and supremacism” and that doing away with replaceable, more suitable terms is need of the hour.”That the definition of Social Distancing Advisory by MOHFW (Ministry of Health and Family Welfare), is to 1) Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms‟ length) from other people, 2) Do not gather in groups, 3) Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings. That means, what is required to prevent the spread of Covid19 – Corona Virus is that, it is “Physical Distancing” and not “Social Distancing” which resembles like the age old practice of caste based untouchability. There requires a “Social solidarity” and “Physical Distance” instead of “Social Distance””- The petition reads.Click Here To Download LetterSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
