Hiding cosmetic surgery from spouse now grounds for divorce?

A man in China divorced his wife for not being forthcoming about past cosmetic surgeries; expert facial plastic surgeon weighs in on unprecedented ruling

divorceWith divorces happening in more than 50% of marriages today, there are always interesting causes for the failed marriage. But a husband suing his wife, and winning, because he thought her “too ugly” may be the strangest case yet.

The northern Chinese man married his wife and was reportedly absolutely in love with her. She became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl, a girl the horrified husband thought to be incredibly ugly.

The “distraught” husband accused his wife of having an affair and demanded to know who the father was. While the wife had not cheated, she did leave out the fact she had spent more than $100,000 on intense plastic surgery to “severely change how she looked.

The husband proceeded to divorce and sue his now ex-wife claiming that she had gotten him to marry her under false pretenses.

Tampa-based facial plastic surgeon Dr. Richard M. Castellano explains that much surgery is not just a little white lie.

“$100K is a lot to spend on plastic surgery, and though it isn’t first date conversation, that is a big part of someone’s past to hide. Taking the news to the levels of a lawsuit and divorce, though, is obviously something that wouldn’t get to far in western culture.”

Astoundingly, the judge sided with the husband and ordered a payment of $120,000 be paid to the husband.

Dr. Castellano, who has performed more than 5000 facial surgeries and procedures in his career, and the founder of his Tampa practice, ImageLift, says that this unique ruling defies the true nature of choosing cosmetic treatments in the first place.

“Our patients come in and are considering treatments because they want to make themselves feel better,” the facial plastic surgeon says. “Face lifts aren’t about making other people happy, it’s about getting a rejuvenated look that makes the patient feel more confident and sharing that with the world around them.”

We do not know whether or not the now ex-wife will be countersuing for her ex-husbands facial appearance.

About Image Lift and Dr. Richard Castellano: Image Lift was founded by Richard Castellano, MD, a Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon with the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology in Head and Neck Surgery.

On Cyber Monday the White House releases new report on the impact of middle-class tax cuts on retailers and consumer spending

Report details consequences if Congress fails to extend middle-class tax cuts

white house fiscal cliff press releaseAs we move into the holiday shopping season, the White House released a report from the National Economic Council and the Council of Economic Advisers called The Middle-Class Tax Cuts’ Impact on Consumer Spending and Retailers. This report provides new analysis on the impact to retailers and consumer spending if Congress fails to act to avoid taxes going up on 98 percent of Americans at the end of the year. 

The link to the full report can be found HERE.
 
The President believes Democrats and Republicans should come together to renew middle-class tax cuts so families and businesses have more certainty at this critical time for our economy.  If Congress acts, every American will get a tax break on their first $250,000 of income, and income taxes won’t go up for 98 percent of American families and 97 percent of small businesses. The President believes we must take a balanced approach to reduce our deficit, that’s why he has laid out a $4 trillion deficit reduction plan that asks the wealthy to pay a little more and preserves the investments we need to grow the economy.  The President has already signed $1.1 trillion in spending cuts and he looks forward to working with Democrats and Republicans on a balanced approach to further reduce our deficit. This is an important moment not just to avoid the fiscal cliff—but to lay the groundwork for an economy that will support a healthy middle class, restore economic certainty, and lead to long-term job growth.
 
If Congress doesn’t act, middle-class families will see their income taxes go up on January 1st. The typical middle-class family will see their taxes go up by $2,200 next year, negatively impacting businesses and retailers across the nation.  The President has called on Congress to take action and stop holding the middle class and our economy hostage over a disagreement on tax cuts for households with incomes over $250,000 per year.

Summary of White House Report: The Middle-Class Tax Cuts’ Impact on Consumer Spending and Retailers

President Obama is committed to growing our economy from the middle out by ensuring a strong, secure, and thriving middle-class.  That’s why his top priority is promoting jobs and growth while reducing our deficit in a balanced and responsible way.

Since taking office, President Obama has repeatedly cut taxes for middle-class families to make it easier for them to make ends meet.  A typical family making $50,000 a year has received tax cuts totaling $3,600 over the past four years – more if it was putting a child through college.

Now we face a deadline that requires action on jobs, taxes and deficits by the end of the year. If Congress fails to act, every American family’s taxes will automatically go up – including the 98 percent of Americans who make less than $250,000 a year and the 97 percent of small businesses that earn less than $250,000 a year.  A typical middle-class family of four would see its taxes rise by $2,200.

While the President is committed to working with Congress to reach compromises on areas of disagreement, there is no reason to delay acting where everyone agrees: extending tax cuts for the middle-class. There is no reason to hold the middle-class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the highest income earners.

Our economy can’t afford that right now. New analysis by the President’s Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) finds that:

  • Allowing the middle-class tax rates to rise and failing to patch the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) could cut the growth of real consumer spending by 1.7 percentage points in 2013.  This sharp rise in middle-class taxes and the resulting decline in consumption could slow the growth of real GDP by 1.4 percentage points, which is consistent with recently published estimates from the Congressional Budget Office. 
     
  • Faced with these tax hikes, the CEA estimates that consumers could spend nearly $200 billion less than they otherwise would have in 2013 just because of higher taxes.  This reduction of $200 billion is approximately four times the total amount that 226 million shoppers spent on Black Friday weekend last year.  As Figure 5 shows, this $200 billion reduction would likely be spread across all areas of consumer spending.

American consumers are the bedrock of our economy, driving more than two-thirds of the overall rise in real GDP over 13 consecutive quarters of economic recovery since the middle of 2009.  And as we approach the holiday season, which accounts for close to one-fifth of industry sales, retailers can’t afford the threat of tax increases on middle-class families.

President Obama and Congressional Democrats have proposed to extend all the income tax cuts that benefit families who make less than $250,000 per year.

The President has called on Congress to act now on extending all income tax cuts for 98 percent of American families and not to hold the middle-class and our economy hostage over a disagreement on tax cuts for households with incomes over $250,000 per year. The Senate has passed this bill and the President is ready to sign it.

The Publicity Agency client Helen A. Rosburg talked about her life’s work rescuing animals, outreach to underprivileged youth

PR firm The Publicity AgencyThe national PR firm The Publicity Agency’s client, Wrigley heiress Helen A Rosburg, appeared on the nationally-syndicated late morning show “Daytime” on Thursday, November 15. Rosburg is an animal lover and at-risk youth philanthropist who has faced personal struggles of her own, including two bouts with breast cancer and a stroke.

“Despite having faced so many challenges in her life, Helen Rosburg continues to give back in so many ways to those who need it the most,” says Jessica Pajak, project manager with the PR firm that represents Rosburg. “Her story is heartwarming and inspiring, and thanks to ‘Daytime,’ so many more people around the country now know about what she does.”

Daytime host Cyndi Edwards visited Rosburg’s estate where she learned not only about the Wrigley heiress’ battles with breast cancer but also her philanthropic efforts with at-risk youth and animals and her media empire, Medallion Media Group. 

“It just made me tougher, and it made me a better fighter for others,” says Rosburg of her battles with breast cancer and surviving a stroke.

Rosburg showed Edwards around her home, which sits on 127-acres of land in Odessa, Fla. She also introduced them to her menagerie of rescued horses, dogs, pigs and even, a turkey.

WedWu, Inc. wins Miami ‘Geek Tank,’ secures funding from Miami Innovation Fund

WedWu logoWedWu, Inc., a name-your-own-price for wedding services bidding platform, emerged victorious at the inaugural Miami Herald Business Plan Challenge “Geek Tank” event. The Miami Herald partnered with the Miami Innovation Fund to test the presentation skills of four of the 2012 Miami Herald Business Plan Challenge winners, who were thrown into the “Geek Tank” to see who could impress investors. Each startup was given an opportunity to make a 10-minute investor presentation followed by 10 minutes of questions from the panel of judges, which included fund cofounder Jack Karabees, president of Miami Beach-based “Consult A Doctor.” WedWu, founded by Darren Atinsky and Michael Carnie, competed against Smart Access Solutions, Biomotics and Geopon.

“We had a great time competing against some amazing companies,” stated Atinksy.  “The team at WedWu really believes that through its name-your-own-price for event services platform, we are disrupting the market and changing the way people plan their weddings.” 

Once all four start-ups had presented and fielded the questions asked by the judges, the panel deliberated and declared WedWu the winner. The judges believed that WedWu had the best concept and presented it well. After the event WedWu was offered and accepted a term sheet from the fund.LSPR logo

“Investors invest in a large and growing market, a billion dollars or more, they invest in a management team with deep and relevant experience in the business,” Karabees stated.   “Another element that is extremely important is an understanding of valuation… And the last thing they invest in is competitive advantage — do they differentiate themselves dramatically from the competition?” 

About WedWu, Inc: WedWu, Inc began in 2011 and is headquartered in Davie, Fla. The wedding service company is the first “Name-Your-Own-Price” Internet platform for brides, in the country; specializing in photography, video and DJ services for weddings at a significant cost-savings.  Additional information can be accessed at http://www.wedwu.com.

If you have a website for your book, an online press release can help drive traffic to it, if it contains the right SEO terms. Also, if your website is monetized, more traffic means more profit for you, and it shows that there is interest in your book, which could translate into sales.

By using an online press release through your book press release distribution company, the waves of communication in the digital world open up. People can link to it on their social media accounts and share it with others through email, making it a hot topic.

You also have the ability to control the news with an online press release because you can tell your book press release distribution company the day and time you want it to be published. If you’ve done your research, then you should know what days are best for your press release to get noticed.

Knowing the benefits of online press releases for your book can help you sell your book in different ways, and that’s the ultimate goal for a majority of self-published authors.
