The special gift with lasting value - the personal wedding magazine

The wedding gift with lasting value: the personal wedding journal

When celebrities get married, from actors to politicians and royalty, all newspapers and magazines are filled with photos and stories about the couple. Doesn't every bride and groom want to enjoy 'celebrity status' on their big day? What then, could be more flattering for the couple, and remind the crowd of guests of this important event forever, as a personal wedding newspaper? Or even better, a wedding magazine. Presented at the wedding by the best friends, siblings or other close relatives to the couple, filled with glossy photographs and anecdotes about the bride and groom. Creating such a magazine is far less difficult than one thinks, because the free applications from photo book providers such as CEWE Photo Book, FotoInsight and Printing-1 are perfectly suited to create one. No need to pay for complex graphics software or to spent time learning how to use them, or even to hire a graphic designer. The printed wedding magazine will look stunningly professional.

Content - the more individual the more exciting
Personal photo book
Before we begin with the real work on the wedding journal, it is important to think about the content and themes for this magazine project. That way it becomes easier to work off the topics covered and to plan the time needed for the compilation. As a suggestion, the following outline could provide the basic structure of the personal publication:
  • Greetings, introductions and credits: As in any commercial publication, these are the pages where the editors or creators of the wedding magazine speak to the reader. In addition to the text it should show photos of the authors.
  • Portrait of the bride and groom: Presenting the bride and groom in a loving, funny or romantic way. Illustrate the text with photos and drawings that can be photographed or scanned in.
  • An interview with the parents of the bride and groom about their own child and the child-in-law. Of course, it should also include photos of the interviewees.
  • Create a horoscope for the bride and groom - whether serious or humorous, is up to taste. It is good to add images of the sky maps and drawings or photos of each astrological sign.
  • Baby photos! Particularly exciting for all readers of the wedding magazine are pictures from the bride’s and groom’s baby album, accompanied by stories told by the parents.
  • The wedding guest list - of course is best with photographs, which the invitees may supply by e-mail.
  • Puzzle page: A space for questions about the couple, that must be answered by the readers of the wedding magazine.

This list is not exhaustive, but it should give a first impression of the subjects to include in a wedding photo book or a wedding magazine.

Design - creative and free
Wedding Magazine
The wedding magazine's design process can start as soon as the plan for the content has been laid-out - i.e. once the topics have been covered and their pages have been defined.  The software from vendors such as Albelli, CEWE, FotoInsight and Printing-1, which can be downloaded for free from their websites, offers the opportunity to continuously work on a photo book or a bridal magazine, increasing the number of pages in steps as required. To do this, simply create a new "Photo Book" and save it under the title "wedding magazine" right on your computer. Then you determine the format, the page size and choose the type of covers - these are hard- or softcover. Now you can go to lay out the pages and determine how many picture elements to include and how much text to print. All that can be done, before a any text has been written or any images have been added. If, when filling the pages, it appears that the layout or number of images or text boxes were inadequate, or there are too few or too many pages - no problem. The wedding magazine's layout and number of pages can still be changed later.

Personal wedding gift
And this is how the software from photo book printers such as FotoInsight and Printing-1 work: Load the software onto your computer and follow the installation manager. Once the software is installed, use the 'new photo book' button, creating a new document for your wedding magazine. Now pick under the tabs 'Format' and 'layout set', the basic parameters of the 'Photo Book' - these are page number, size, etc (which can be changed later). Photo BooksThe next step is to load your photos and scanned drawings. First save all graphic elements for the wedding magazine into a folder on the hard disk. When clicking the 'apply' button, the software can place the graphic elements chosen automatically in the layout. Of course, individual pictures can also be placed freely at any angle, layer or position on any page through drag and drop. Lastly, the buttons 'images', 'layout' and 'design' lead to different layout and graphic content options. The text size and colour can be defined freely and text and images can be rotated and moved without limitation. 

How to choose the right paper and finish for your photo book or product catalogue project?

The photo book boom has pushed the leading printers to constant innovation. Photo books can be printed digitally or processed on photographic paper. For a surcharge, the photo book pages can receive a high-gloss coating or a matte finish. Which material and finish should be chosen for which photo book project? Read the answers here:

Finally, a professional looking wedding magazine will be readily laid-out with the help of free photo book software from vendors such as CEWE Photo Book, FotoInsight and Printing-1, ready for print. Prints can be ordered easily online. Usually, about half as many copies as guests on the guest list will be needed. That way each couple or each family invited can have their own copy of the magazine and the editors and the newly wedded should get  a few extra copies to preserve. A few days later, the postman delivers the final wedding magazines to the door. It surely is one of the most original and personal wedding gifts for the bride and groom.

Can be reproduced free of charge. We would welcome a link or copy.

Belgioioso Vintage trade fair in a great castle of Italy, 22-25 april 2017

The Next Vintage Show   
at the Castle Belgioioso 
is ready to start!

There was a time when creativity was intense, experimental and daring...
Remember the Eighties? Glamourous and eccentric, that decade, between probable and unprobable trends, was prizing for those that really wanted to blow their mind, art and creativity even until the extreme consequences of not being totally shared or comprehended. Anyway, fashion designers but also the consumers had more opportunities to express their own individuality and a lively creativity.
Let you be inspired by the next Spring edition of Next Vintage, a market and exhibition "sui generis" where more than 70 qualified dealers/exhibitors will be happy to once again to surprise and delight even the most demanding tastes on period fashion and accessories.
My friend Angela Eupani of the Vintage Workshop® cultural association, dept. research accessories brand "Sculture da Indossare" (Sculptures to Wear) will hold her 24th participation in her huge stand to be discovered and hunted at the ground floor, right inside corridor, booth n.12 of the well known castle Belgioioso, located in the neighborhood of Pavia, at the North-west of Italy, very easy to be reached via highway.
Angela and her team will be happy to show their accessories, among which: period shoes, purses, handbags, belts, little fancy leather items and costume jewelry for women, men and also teens.
Inside and outside their booth, as usually Sculptures to Wear will put on display at some giants panels their proposals of moods and inspirations that, in this edition, will be much centered on the keyword maximalism: therefore, maximum colour, expressivity in shapes, manufactoring, textures, materials, for unmissable one-of-a-kind accessories, many of which are unusual, rare or also unique.
Renewed also the co-operation with the danish artist Jacob Sibbern whose whimsical artworks will be integral part of the trends panels, together with some very expressionist accessories collected and presented by Angela with a portion of her research collection in progress that, more than 15 years ago, she successfully conceived as her "Sculptures to Wear".
Even the combinations of black & whites won't miss,especially in fresh unpublished vintage patterns of great optical impact (see photos below).
Collateral exhibition: "Cappelli che passione / Hat passion": a rite of seduction, conceived and presented by the journalist, stylist and collector Cristina Nava (see portrait photo below).
And here you are with an appetizing gallery of pictures as an anticipation on what I hope you will have a chance to personally watch (and buy) at the Next Vintage Show, from April 22 through to 25 2017, Opening times: 10/20 non-stop.

Fluoride Safety Doubted Researchers Report

New York -- March 2017 --Three expert committees (NRCSCHERYORK) revealed “that there is uncertainty surrounding both the safety and the efficacy of fluoridation, report Israeli  researchers,  Anat Gesser-Edelsburg, PhD, Head of Health Promotion Department, School of Public Health, University of Haifa, and Dr. Yaffa Shir-Raz  ( Journal of Risk Research, August 2016)
Fluoridation is the unnecessary and costly addition of fluoride chemicals into tap-water drinkers via public water supplies in a failed attempt to prevent tooth decay.
The Israeli researchers further report that  “A [UK] Cochrane systematic review (2015) “concluded that there is very little updated and high-quality evidence indicating that fluoridation reduces dental caries, while there is significant association between fluoride levels and dental fluorosis [white spotted, yellow, brown and/or pitted teeth].”

Israel policy-makers and public health officials ignored or denied valid evidence, produced by experts in their fields and respected science groups to push through a fluoridation mandate in Israel, report Gesser-Edelsburg and Shir-Raz.

They report that “policy makers themselves …[carry] out what they accuse others [fluoridation opposers] of doing. They share only partial, biased information in order to support their [pro-fluoridation] case, and convey information in terms that misrepresent the actual situation.”

The same is true in the US

From the beginning, respected US scientists and physicians criticized fluoridation but were ignored (i.e., Waldbott). Voices of opposition were suppressed since the early days, according to Chemical and Engineering News.

Criticism persists today, i.e. Legal Scholar Rita Barnett-Rose; Historian Catherine Carstairs, Phd; Social Scientist Brian Martin PhD; investigative reporters in Scientific American, Chemical & Engineering News, Newsweek and ABC-TV.  

In fact, US public health bureaucrats ignore their own published evidence of fluoride’s potential harm i.e. New York State Department of Health and Virginia Department of Health.

The ignored1990 NYS Department of Health report alerted bureaucrats about fluoride's potential harm to kidney patients, diabetics and the fluoride hypersensitive even at optimal levels.

Gesser-Edelsburg and Shir-Raz explain that some studies, including recent ones, show no benefit from fluoridation; some even report adverse effects and that those studies were ignored by officials.

Today’s PR gurus coach fluoridationists to avoid mentioning risks because then “opponents are likely to win.”  (slide 18) And they disallow fluoridation opponents from partaking in fluoridation discussions. This occurred in New York State.

Coming on the heels of evidence showing that fluoridation is useless and more harmful to the poor, researchers continue to report that fluoridation's tooth decay reduction are still  not scientifically proven.

“Fluoridated water [does] not seem, based on the existing literature, to hold sufficient evidence for the reduction of dental caries,” report Italian researchers in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dentistry (December 2016).

 Swedish researchers, in PLOS one, February 2015, reported a “systematic review concerned the caries-preventive effect of water fluoridation [McDonagh]… was graded as low.”

In July 2012, Cagetti, et al. reported “Studies of the effectiveness of water fluoridation have been based on observational study designs… these studies are regarded as low in quality and the weight of the evidence derived from cross-sectional and observational studies can be questionable”

In 2011 the West Virginia University Rural Health Research Center reported " was found that fluoridation rates were not significantly related to the measures of either caries or overall condition of the teeth for urban or rural areas."

 Even respected dental researchers have reported in dental textbooks that fluoridation is based more on unproven theories than scientific evidence.

Countries that do not fluoridate the water have experienced a dramatic decline in tooth decay.  See chart.

Film receives a limited theatrical release. Chad A. Verdi and Joshua Sason are producing, Gwyneth Paltrow is narrating, and Original Song by Lyle Lovett from writer and director Mathew J. Weiss.

EAST GREENWICH, RI-- March 08, 2017 - reports that Verdi Productions, along with Manga Entertainment announce that they will release the 9/11 documentary entitled "Man in Red Bandana" in early September 2017. The film will hit theaters and VOD platforms throughout the USA in a limited day and date release. This will be the third film released by Verdi Productions over the last two years, following Ten Thousand Saints, starring Ethan Hawke and Hailee Steinfeld and Bad Hurt, staring Theo Rossi, Karen Allen and Ashley Williams.

The film was written and directed by Matthew J. Weiss with Chad A. Verdi and Joshua Sason producing. Executive Producers are Michelle Verdi, Neil Cortel and Tom DeNucci. The film editors are Doug Forbes and Sam Eilertsen. The film is narrated by Gwyneth Paltrow with Lyle Lovett performing an original song.

Man in Red Bandana tells the incredible story of Welles Crowther, a 24-year old civilian who gave his life saving others in the South Tower of the World Trade Center. His heroics included carrying a woman on his shoulder down 17 flights of stairs. His bravery and courage only came to light eight months later due to an ordinary object ... a red bandana. Through interviews, archive footage, re-creations and animation, the film depicts Welles' story in an engaging and educational manner. The ending depicts the diverse ways that Welles is honored throughout the United States leading to the revelation of a secret about Welles that can only be described as beautifully inspirational.
