NYC's iconic Stonewall Inn now declared a LGBT national landmark

Posted: 2016/06/24   Source: Scott Horsley, NPR

In time for New York City's annual Gay Pride Parade, and 47 years after the Gay Liberation movement was born in the midst of a riot held just outside its doors, the iconic Stonewall Inn has been declared a national monument by President Obama. The news was received with great joy and emotion by our author Elliot Tiber.

Tiber, who has been declared a "gay rights icon" by none other than The New York Times in recent years, was among those who finally stood back and fought gainst the unjust harassment often aimed at the gay community through the unwarranted force and intimidation of the city's police. To learn that the Stonewall is now the first monument in our country's National Park System to both acknowledge and respect the LGBT experience in America nearly brings Mr. Tiber to tears. "After having gone through the agony of seeing what happened to my many slain gay brothers and sisters in Orlando, this announcement today brings a hard-earned joy to my heart. I never thought I would live long enough to see this day, and I'm delighted by this long-overdue news."

Having written about his many life experiences leading up to the Summer of '69 in his first two books (Taking Woodstock, written with Tom Monte, and the "prequel" Palm Trees on the Hudson written by Tiber alone), Elliot Tiber continues his reminiscences about his life as a gay man and artist from the year 1970 and up to present in hs newest memoir, After Woodstock: The True Story of a Belgian Movie, an Israeli Wedding, and a Manhattan Breakdown (with a Foreword by none other than two-time Oscar winning director Ang Lee, who directed the acclaimed feature film of Taking Woodstock back in 2009). Tiber lives in Florida with his beloved Yorkie terrier, "Woody Woodstock," and can't wait to get back up to New York City and visit the Stonewall site yet again.

Maria Shriver hosts a social media chat with Richard S. Isaacson, MD, author with Christopher N. Ochner, PhD of The Alzheimer's Prevention & Treatment Diet (Square One)

Garden City Park, NY: After appearing twice last month (May 2016) as a medical expert on the popular and nationally syndicated Dr. Oz show, revered medical doctor and Square One author Richard S. Isaacson was invited to appear in an interview with none other than California's former First Lady and Alzheimer's advocate Maria Shriver.

The segment went live earlier this month on Ms. Shriver's special Facebook page dedicated solely to the topic of Alzheimer's. Within less than a week, the Shriver/Isaacson interview segment received over 79,000 views (and counting), a record high for that page.

Dr. Isaacson's expertise on Alzheimer's was cited in a recent New York Times article (link the article), and his new book received a positive review from Publishers Weekly ("[A]" comprehensive yet easy-to-follow nutritional guide for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease . . . recommended for anyone who cares about long-term mental health.").

The book has also won the praise of the authors' colleagues in the world of health and
beyond, including: Dr. Arthur Agatston, MD, cardiologist and New York Times bestselling author of The South Beach Diet TM ("Cutting-edge approach"); Dr. Dale V. Atkins, psychologist and author of Sanity Savers ("A valuable resource"); Dan Pashman, host of the Cooking Channel series You're Eating It Wrong ("The perfect guide"); and New York Times bestselling author David Pottruck, who says of the book that "It can work for you."

Both authors hold great positions in their respective fields: Dr. Isaacson is the founder and director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian; and Dr. Ochner is now President of the Nutrition Science Initiative, a nonprofit organization that facilitates research in nutrition.

The Alzheimer's Prevention & Treatment Diet is now available.
