World Castle Publishing Releases the YA Novel Call of the Phoenix

Pensacola, FL, February 11, 2018 –(– Today, the world will meet a new hero whose destiny was written long ago. The ancient magic that has been dormant for centuries will awaken and prove to the world that not all heroes wear capes. Some wear skirts, but only on special occasions. Because, really, let’s face it, how practical would a skirt be when you’re saving the world from the darkest magic known to man? Seraphina Miles is not your typical hero. Besides her love of learning and witty sense of humor, there is not a whole lot that makes Sera stand out from the world around her. She is just your normal everyday teenager until Sera finds herself sent halfway across the world to spend her summer with her estranged father at his archaeological dig site in Machu Picchu. Dread. Boredom. Malcontent. Sera really pulls out all the usual teenage angst from day one. But that all changes the moment she uncovers an amulet hidden deep within the ruins of Machu Picchu. Through its magic, Sera finds an egg buried deep beneath the earth. When she hatches the golden egg in the middle of a burning fire, the phoenix inside imprints on her. The phoenix becomes her protector as she quests to find the amulet’s missing stones to activate all of her Guardian powers. If you love heart racing adventures...

National Geographic article follows Colombian teens as they “parent” RealCare Baby infant simulators EAU CLAIRE, WI, February 11, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — With the help of computerized infants made in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, ninth-grade students from Tame, Colombia recently learned what being a teen parent could be like. The students were part of their public school’s “Bebe? Piensalo Bien” or “Baby? Think It Over!” program, part of larger community efforts to prevent teen pregnancy among rural teens. The “Baby? Think it Over!” program combines 30 hours of in-class instruction with a 48-hour period during which students care for RealCare Baby infant simulators, realistic robotic babies made in Wisconsin. As National Geographic recently reported, the program was shown to reduce teen pregnancy by more than 40 percent among a study of 1,400 student participants. “From the day that RealCare Baby was ‘born’ 20 years ago, our mission has been to help young people around the world make healthy choices,” said Realityworks President and CEO Timm Boettcher. “We’re dedicated to creating products and services that improve the lives of others, and we are thrilled that our experiential learning tools are helping to make a positive impact in Colombia.” RealCare Baby is a high-tech infant simulator that cries for care throughout the day and night. During a simulation experience, like that which the Colombian students participated in, Baby requires its caregiver to respond...
