Historic Marilyn Monroe ''Red Velvet'' Photographic Color Separations Put Up for Sale

Las Vegas, Nevada (Sharewellnewswire) July 26, 2012 – A Las Vegas art collector and owner of the original, one-of-a-kind color separations used to produce the iconic "Golden Dreams" calendars from the famous 1949 Marilyn Monroe "Red Velvet" photo shoot, is offering them for sale. These color separations were originally created and owned by the John Baumgarth Company and were discovered as part of a corporate art collection in 2010. The collection is in pristine condition and archivally preserved and presented.

The most glamorous icon of the 20th Century was captured for all time in a moment of youthful, exuberant sensuality – an unforgettable image that, more than 60 years later, communicates freshness. To reproduce the refined features, supple texture and luxurious tones that were so totally Marilyn, print artisans painstakingly created and corrected the many layers of film needed for the full color printing process to make the original Chromalin color proof – a masterpiece of printer's art.


The Kodachrome photograph and twenty-one large format color separations (16" x 33") offered for sale were used by Baumgarth to create the iconic image of Marilyn Monroe featured in the first "Golden Dreams" calendar produced in 1951, before the identity of the blonde bombshell posing for the photos was known (the model wasn't identified as Marilyn until 1952), and which went on to sell over eight million copies worldwide, making Marilyn the best-selling calendar

girl of all time. 



The collection also includes the "Lure of Lace" and "Entrancing" images that featured Marilyn wearing negligees in order to comply with U.S. postal regulations banning the transport of nude images.


The Kodachrome photograph is framed and the color separations are mounted and protected in OP3 museum-quality acrylic frames so that they may be appreciated, when artfully suspended, from both sides. These are the original separations used to produce the large format calendars and the only known surviving examples, which are documented to have changed hands through a series of corporate acquisitions spanning several decades.


When Marilyn showed up to do the calendar shoot at Tom Kelley's studio on Friday, May 27, 1949, her need was dire and immediate; her contracts with 20th Century Fox and Columbia had not been renewed and she was out of work.  The photo shoot was commissioned by Baumgarth, who paid Kelley $500 for the publication rights.


It has been reported that Marilyn received $50, which was exactly what she needed to get back her car that had been impounded. Marilyn only agreed to do the shoot if Kelley's wife Natalie was present.

Only two of the 24 images taken during the shoot, entitled by Baumgarth "A New Wrinkle" and "Golden Dreams," survived and made it to print, with the others mysteriously stolen from Kelley's studio. "A New Wrinkle" graced one Baumgarth calendar, but the picture that captured a nation's imagination was "Golden Dreams."

Neither the photographer nor the 22-year-old blonde actress and model could have realized what an historic moment they were creating. In her contract with Kelley, the starlet signed under the pseudonym Mona Monroe (right). When her movie studio, 20th Century-Fox, first learned that the nude pinup hanging in gas stations from coast to coast was none other than its rising star, it was something of a scandal. The press assailed her with questions. Was it true she had posed with "nothing on"?


The studio's initial reaction was to deny everything.  Studios such as 20th Century-Fox had stringent moral clauses in their contracts that were designed to intimidate actors and actresses. No celebrity had ever posed nude and then had the pictures distributed to a startled nation. Biographers agree that Marilyn was instrumental in persuading the studio that their natural inclination to deny the whole thing was the wrong way to go. Instead, Marilyn used an upcoming interview with Aline Mosby, a reporter with United Press International, to break the story on March 13, 1952:


"A photograph of a beautiful nude blonde on a 1952 calendar is hanging in garages and barbershops all over the nation today.  Marilyn Monroe admitted today that the beauty is she. She posed, stretched out on rumpled red velvet for the artistic photo 3 years ago because "I was broke and needed the money. Oh, the calendar's hanging in garages all over town," said Marilyn.  "Why deny it? You can get one any place.  Besides, I'm not ashamed of it.  I've done nothing wrong."


The story ended up being picked up by every wire service and circulated around the world. The reaction was swift and immediate national forgiveness. Not only that, but the sensation of the pictures, her interview and all of the related controversy made Marilyn an even bigger star.

In December 1953, an astute young publisher named Hugh Hefner bought the rights from Baumgarth to reproduce the "Golden Dreams" image as the first "Sweetheart of the Month," in the now historic inaugural issue of Playboy magazine. The success of that first issue enabled Hefner to continue producing the magazine and ultimately build his Playboy Empire.

In addition to the Red Velvet Collection, many of the original paintings in the Messenger Art Collection are being offered for sale. Visit the website and click on Masterpieces for Sale.

New best selling diet book aspires people to jump off the treadmill and into the hot tub!

The sensational best seller diet book urges people to jump off the treadmill, into the hot tub!Bridget Praytor had taken every diet pill and almost worked herself to a gym-bound early grave in order to fit in with society's accepted female 'mold'. Following an epiphany moment in a hot tub, Praytor is proving that mind over matter can quickly turn insecurity into pride.  July 25,2012 -  Bridget Praytor had taken every diet pill and almost worked herself to a gym-bound early grave in order to fit in with society's accepted female 'mold'. Following an epiphany moment in a hot tub, Praytor is proving that mind over matter can quickly turn insecurity into pride.

Like millions of women around the world, Bridget Praytor was lazy, fat and miserable; or so society made her think. With the alluring promises of a perfect body from a supermarket-checkout magazine, to the box of diet pills that would make her ten pounds lighter by Saturday, Praytor knew that the world expected more of her.

Bridget discovered her thought process was the 'magic pill' to great health, beauty and happiness. She now bares all in her new book, 'The Hot Tub Diet'. The book is being received around the world with critical acclaim.

Let's make one thing very clear - it isn't a book geared toward the health industry. The Hot Tub Diet is geared exclusively toward the 'regular' person who is tired of society making them feet overweight and depressed.


 "I was quite literally torturing myself just to be the woman society pressured me to be, even though none of the fads were working" says Praytor, who went as far as running a marathon without training for it and even training three hours a day for an Ironman just to lose weight.

 She continues, "I was then rear-ended by a distracted driver and was summoned to the gym's hot tub during my recovery. While reflecting on my life and my ability to unsuccessfully try every weight-loss shake ever made, I came to realize that the phrase 'mind over matter' was more truthful in its claim than any fad diet ever could be."

 What ensued was quite literally life-changing. By adjusting her mindset about her body, her weight, her goals and the real meaning of 'healthy', Praytor noticed her body starting to change for the better, with the pounds melting away.

 As both Praytor and readers all over the world agree, the book is a vital addition to anyone's life.

 "This book contains knowledge I wish someone would have told me. The Hot Tub Diet is a book for anyone who is tired of diets that don't work, tired of punishing exercises, tired of buying shoes because only accessories "look cute" on you, and tired of feeling bad about yourself--and anyone who is ready to change your mindset, feel confident, and finally have a body you love" she adds.

 "This book is great to keep you motivated. In a light hearted way it helps you see why you have been failing to keeping to your goal of losing weight. The recap in the last few pages would make a great poster. In fact I am going to make one and hang it on my bedroom door" says one reader from the Philippines.

 In all, Praytor hopes her book throws up the answers that profit-driven fads fail to provide.

  "It's about taking time for yourself, getting off the treadmill of life, and really evaluating your thought process and why you do what you do. I want people to realize that their thoughts heavily contribute to their weight and that they should think in a more positive way in order to change their health and the way they look" she concludes.

 The Hot Tub Diet is available now from Amazon in both paperback and eBook formats (click links to purchase).

Short Sale San Diego Realty Explains the Latest Benefits of Buying a Short Sale

San Diego,CA ( July 24,2012  -  For all of you who have shopped around for a house, the term short sale or pre-foreclosure are not new. However, you might not have a complete understanding of what these terms mean. Both terms have the same meaning: the seller is trying to avoid foreclosure and is attempting to negotiate a deal with the lender in hopes for not ruining the seller's credit report completely.

Though the seller and lender both have a few benefits of short selling, the benefits to the buyer are also not less.  Mostly people speculate that a short sale property is never a good buy. Many people concentrate on these speculations and forget that if the drawbacks are kept on a side, buying a short sale has many advantages for the buyer.

The most important benefit of a short sale is that the buyer will be offered a price that is lower than the original value of the property. Why? Because the lender and the seller are both looking forward to avoiding foreclosure and the costs that come with it. Also, lenders end up paying for any repair and maintenance work that the property needs when it is on the market. To avoid these costs, lenders usually accept to sell the house at a much lower price without spending any money on the repair and maintenance. If the buyer is willing to spend a little extra money on the repair and maintenance of the property, then a short sale is a great buy.
Banks are the usual lenders involved in different property matters. The bank will try to salvage as much of the loan payments as it can. A foreclosure not only costs that bank a lawsuit but also adds cost like repair and maintenance of the property and removes the chance of getting any of the money that was initially loaned. Another great worry for the bank is that even after a foreclosure, there is no guarantee that the property would sell. To avoid further costs, the bank may offer the short sale buyer different lucrative options like low interest rates, longer mortgage period or any other such offers that will help the bank avoid further costs and sell the property.
Another reason why a short sale is better is that the seller does not switch on a destructive mode on the property. The seller also realizes that a short sale is much better and that once their financial conditions get better they have a chance of returning to their old home or buy a new property within a shorter time period. This helps the buyer achieve a property with usually no major maintenance and also move into the house more quickly.

New Blogger Offers a Fresh New Twist to from the Classic ‘Mommy Blog’ Format

Atlanta, GA ( July 24, 2012 -  "Mommy Blogger? Not me!" says Atlanta based Kesha Phillips, writer and editor of parenting and lifestyle guide "I'd like to think that We Got Kidz is a bit of a departure from the "flowers and butterflies", "bubbles and bows" format that mommy blogs have come to be known for. Sure we have loads of great parenting advice, and sure we talk about crafts; but We Got Kidz is more than that. We're here to bring a little bit of edginess and levity to our reader's lives as well."

In this age of social media, We Got Kidz opens the lines of communication for moms and dads alike offering up a refreshingly laid back approach to parenting to a "new generation" of parents. Kesha states, "I hope that We Got Kidz can be a bit of an exodus for moms and dads at the end of a long day. They can grab a cocktail, stop by, and get a dose of parenting advice, entertainment news, hilarious videos, and the best viral junk found around the web. It's a media smorgasbord for parents who want the best and most informative information on parenting and family life, but who also want to be entertained as well."

Since their launch in July of 2011 has grown by leaps and bounds and boasts a community full of parents who delight in what We Got Kidz has to offer. "It's so rare that I read a blog and immediately think, 'I want to be friends with this person'", says Kendra of

Gordon “Grant” Curtis Selected to Head the Risk Panel at Family Office Conference

Newport, Rhode Island ( July 23, 2012  -  Gordon "Grant" Curtis, Executive Director for CI Investments, a Single Family Office headquartered in Switzerland, is the chosen moderator for a panel of financial experts presenting to the ultra-wealthy.  Counterparts to the likes of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffet, Larry Ellison, Michael Dell and many more noted entrepreneurs will be in attendance.  Each panelist will get a chance to share their insights and opinions about investment risk & relative analysis.

Having anchored, keynoted or presented at many high level financial engagements, such as the annual Opal Group conference in Newport, Rhode Island, Mr. Curtis is no stranger to the topic of risk.  As further demonstrated by the stellar performance for the SFO under his direction; volatility mitigation and a formidable track record have put him consistently at the top of the pack.  Under his leadership since the mid 2000's, the CI Family Office remains one of the most consistent, top performing family offices in its class.

So what will the topic of "risk" reveal at this conference?  "Although I am not a panelist at this event, I obviously have opinions about risk.  Elements of risk are inherent in everything that we do, especially for the investments that we make, and it is up to each to decide what their tolerance and or quantification via proper analysis of risk is for them" stated Mr. Curtis.

The esteem panelists; Tate Haymond from PerTrac Analytics, Tony Brenner from Pivot Point Capital, Benn Dunn from Alpha Theory, and Carol Pepper of Pepper International, will each get a chance as panelists to make their points relative to how they interpret and implement relevant strategies with respect to risk.

According to Mr. Curtis, the audience, now estimated at over 500 Family Office attendees, will get to interact with these expert panelists through an open format discussion on the topic.  Unlike other presentations, the dynamic aspects of what really defines risk and how it affects everyone will be examined in detail. 

At a time when there appears to be much uncertainty in the market place, and even less confidence in the political or economic climate, this is a most relevant subject.  Mr. Curtis has often commented on the conservative nature of family offices.  He supports the true understanding of how risk increases as the number of market participants continues to grow.  Coupled with global aspects of currency fluctuation, and other rivaling emerging economies can add to potential volatility that had never been seen prior to the turbulence in 2008-2009.

ICANotes Releases New Features for Inpatient Mental Health Records

Top mental health EMR provider releases enhanced functionality to streamline workflow for psychiatric hospitals and other inpatient behavioral health facilities
ANNAPOLIS, MD ( – July 20, 2012 )  – ICANotes, LLC, the leader in online behavioral health records, today announced program enhancements developed specifically for hospitals and other inpatient mental health facilities. These enhancements consist of:
ê   Clinician Reminder Sheet – A new report functions as a clinician dashboard to documents due or overdue as well as documents which are incomplete or lack electronic signatures. The length of time a clinician has to complete required notes may be set by each individual facility.
ê   Electronic Medication Administration Record (eMAR) – The eMAR provides a complete electronic workflow to enhance nursing efficiency while ensuring medication charting accuracy and safe medication management.
ê   Clinician’s Orders – This area has been expanded to include all types of orders utilized by inpatient settings, including a variety of detox protocols, activity and restriction orders, and dietary orders. Nurses are notified when a new order has been entered.
ê   Verbal Orders – Nurses may enter verbal orders and alert the physician to sign them electronically. The order sheet documents who gave the verbal order, who entered it, and who signed it.
ê   Initial Evaluations - Complete Assessments can be set up so that the portions of the evaluation that are to be completed by each separate discipline are highlighted. Each facility has the option to designate which parts of the Initial Examination their clinicians must complete. This lets ICANotes help facilities meet documentation needs unique to their specific inpatient practice and to comply with documentation requirements mandated by their surveyors or state laws.
ê   Treatment Plans - Clinical reminders can be set up to remind a clinician when a patient’s next Treatment Plan is due. Multiple clinicians can add information to the patient’s Treatment Plan, and the complete Comprehensive Treatment Plan may then be compiled and saved as a clinical note and electronically signed by each clinician.
Developed by a psychiatrist, ICANotes was launched in 1998. Since then, ICANotes has continuously evolved its functionality to maximize its usefulness for all behavioral health professionals. Based on a rapid development platform, ICANotes releases program updates every week. The software design is carefully controlled by the company’s founder and clinical director, Richard Morgenstern, MD, a psychiatrist with an in-depth understanding of how clinicians work.  The result is an intuitive EHR that requires only minimal training.

" ICANotes is being rapidly adopted by inpatient behavioral health organizations, and the clinician’s need are at the forefront of every programming decision we make,” stated Dr. Morganstern. “We never assume that we know what is best, we prefer to be guided by our valued interactions with our users. We have worked closely with a number of facilities to design and test these new features which are intended to automate workflow for the inpatient setting.”

About ICANotes

Now in use by over 3000 providers nationwide, ICANotes has documented more than 3 million patient encounters. As the most feature-rich web-based electronic medical records solution for psychiatry and mental health professionals, ICANotes is well known for its unique button-driven charting capability. The program enables clinicians to quickly create thorough, personalized narrative notes in minutes without typing or dictating.
