The New Normal – No Man is an Island

Adrienne Rubin, Acclaimed Author.

Diamond and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business

By Acclaimed Author, Adrienne Rubin.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2020 / —

Never send for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

Here we all are, still watching the updated coronavirus news on television as it appears in front of our eyes from around the world. Now, in our living room, we can know everything we need to know. We’ve been told to be patient and watch day after day, while longing for the time our social distancing will end.

United in fear, we are stopped in our tracks. It’s as if there is a God who is saying, “Stop.” “Love one another.” And “Appreciate the great gift of the life I have given you.”

Do we have a choice? The only choice that makes sense is to follow the rules, obey the experts, and remain patient for that future day when we’ll all be free again.

Of course, life as we knew it is no more. The priority of making money has easily surrendered to preventing the spread of infection. Even if we are bored or tired of staying home during the ravages of this plague, it’s inconceivable and even reckless to carry on and put people’s lives at risk.

Businesses have closed, and we want them to reopen. Production and distribution of goods throughout the world have been drastically affected, and we want to start it all up again. But we’re told to wait a little longer, and perhaps a little longer again. As we adapt to the new normal, respecting all the rules with everyone’s health in mind, we face the scary future. What should become very clear to us all is that our individual survival depends on the unity of mankind, which means compliance, not selfishness. No man is an island. We are all interconnected. We cannot survive alone.

The Chinese will probably emerge first. The Italians will also come back to life eventually. Koreans and others will as well. Here in America we cannot foresee when we’ll be back to business as usual, so it’s hard to be calm and ride the wave. Still, it’s our duty to do whatever it takes to see it through. Staying home is not that hard to do. From our window onto the world, we can find the strength to wait patiently and look for signs of recovery, while helping those who need it.

Four hundred years ago in England, John Donne wrote a famous poem while recovering from a serious illness. This is the human condition:

“No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”


Adrienne Rubin is the author of “Diamonds and Scoundrels,” an inspirational memoir that details life in the jewelry business beginning with her early days as a young wife, mother and school teacher to her career as a wholesaler of fine gems and jewels. She demonstrates how to overcome challenges with courage and resilience. This recently published book has been touted as an inspirational page-turner for anyone seeking success in business and life with purpose.

Adrienne Rubin’s memoir, Diamonds and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business is available through,, or, and can be ordered through your local bookstore.

NASA Announces Three Commercial Suppliers for New Lunar Lander

The three companies selected by NASA: SpaceX, Dynetics, and the Blue Origin National Team.

New Decision Highlights Commercial Suppliers on an Aggressive Schedule

NASA has shown great wisdom in selecting three technologically different architectures for its Human Landing System to increase its chances for success.”

— Dale Skran, Chair of the NSS Executive Committee

WASHINGTON, D.C., US, April 30, 2020 / — The National Space Society (NSS) applauds NASA’s April 30 announcement by NASA Administrator James Bridenstine that SpaceX, Dynetics, and Blue Origin’s National Team have been chosen to provide human landing systems to carry crew to the Moon for Artemis III, the third phase of the Artemis lunar program. These commercial entities represent three different architectures for landing humans on the Moon. SpaceX’s giant Starship, capable of carrying 100 tons to the Moon, is a single-stage approach. A two-stage architecture will be developed by Dynetics in coordination with Sierra Nevada Corporation. Finally, Blue Origin’s National Team, consisting of Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, and Draper, has plans to develop a three-stage architecture to return humans to the Moon.

“We have great companies that have invested many of their own resources into this great effort,” Bridenstine said. “So much work has already happened … we are going to the moon, with commercial partners … and ultimately, the goal is to get to Mars.” Bridenstine added, “Some contractors might focus on speed while others focus on sustainability more,” an additional indication that NASA is in for the long-term.

NSS Chair of the Executive Committee Dale Skran said, “NASA has shown great wisdom in selecting three technologically different architectures for its Human Landing System to increase its chances for success. It is especially exciting to see that for the first time NASA is officially including the SpaceX Starship/SuperHeavy in a major project. This is the right program structured the right way, with NASA allowing competing companies to design the human landers with mission-appropriate oversight, and then to provide NASA with lunar landing services without NASA owning the landers.” NSS Executive Vice President Alfred Anzaldúa added, “Today NASA again shows its deep commitment to achieving its goal of sending humans to the Moon and continuing to Mars in the most cost-effective and sustainable manner possible. This decision aligns with the NSS’s Roadmap to Space Settlement by supporting the use of commercial entities in returning to the Moon.”

It is noteworthy that NASA officials made it clear that they would be carefully considering design specifications to avoid delays due to changing requirements on the space agency’s end.

Artemis III is slated to take place after the Artemis I uncrewed flight test, carried out by NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft, followed by Artemis II, a crewed flight by SLS and Orion. The overall aim of the Artemis Program is to deliver the first woman and next man to the lunar surface by the end of 2024, with the intention of maintaining a U.S. presence there indefinitely. The NASA press release can be seen here.

The National Space Society was founded in 1987 via a merger of the National Space Institute, founded by NASA’s Wernher von Braun, and the L5 Society, based on the work of space settlement pioneer Gerard K. O’Neill. It is the world’s largest pro-human-spaceflight organization.

Is the Higher Cost of Synthetic Oil Worth it—New TestOil Webinar Explains

TestOil President Mary Messuti

TestOil President Mary Messuti

TestOil Industrial Oil Analysis

TestOil just produced a webinar overview of synthetic oils. The webinar explains the differences between synthetic and mineral-based oils and their properties.

TestOil is the leading source for those seeking expert advice on oil analysis. Anyone is welcome to call, email us and explore the Knowledge Center on our website. We are here to help.”

— TestOil President Mary Messuti

CLEVELAND, OHIO, U.S., April 30, 2020 / — TestOil, one of the top oil analysis labs in the world, just produced a webinar overview of synthetic oils. The webinar explains the differences between synthetic and mineral-based oils, their properties, strengths and weaknesses. Webinar presenter, TestOil’s Senior Technical Advisor Evan Zabawski, goes over some key points here.

While synthetic oil can be significantly more expensive than mineral-based oil, in some circumstances the additional cost is justified. Zabawski said, “Synthetic can be worth the cost in large industrial equipment–less downtime, because less degradation–or anywhere a balance can be tipped in favor of longer drain intervals or improved energy efficiency. It can make a difference in performance, but sometimes it is so slight as to not warrant the cost.”

As far as oil analysis goes, synthetic oil needs to be tested just as frequently as mineral-based oil. While synthetic is less susceptible to degradation, both oils in the same environment are subject to the same level of contamination—a primary reason for regular oil analysis.

Contamination is an issue with all fluid, but it is especially significant in industries such as mining, construction and any that involve grinding, milling or crushing product.

“Regular oil analysis is important because it isn’t just about the oil, it’s also about the contamination getting into the machine and changes in wear,” Zabawski said. “Most people use oil analysis for machine condition, not just lubricant condition, but even in the case of the latter they understand sampling frequency still needs to have enough data points to trend properly.”

The tests for synthetic fluids are the same as mineral-based. In addition to contamination, these tests include Acid Number, MPC (varnish), RPVOT, RULER, etc.
As far as drain intervals, they can be extended for some types of synthetic oils, but this is not always the case. It depends on the applications and what drives the oil change frequency—degradation or contamination.

TestOil has been testing both synthetic and mineral-based industrial lubricants for 30 years. The company has a number of industry experts on staff, such as Zabawski, that are qualified to answer questions on oil analysis, testing procedures and program setup.

TestOil President Mary Messuti said, “TestOil is the leading source for those seeking expert advice on oil analysis. Anyone is welcome to call, email us and explore the Knowledge Center on our website. We are here to help. “

With more than 30 years of experience in the oil analysis industry, TestOil focuses exclusively on assisting industrial facilities with reducing maintenance costs and avoiding unexpected downtime through oil analysis program implementation. As industry experts in diagnosing oil-related issues in equipment such as turbines, hydraulics, gearboxes, pumps, compressors and diesel generators, TestOil provides customers with a guarantee of same-day turnaround on all routine testing. With in-house, certified training professionals, TestOil offers lubrication and oil analysis training, private onsite training, certification training and exams, and educational webinars.

Technology ‘Rescues’ Weekly TV Show

Llewellyn King, Host, “White House Chronicle”

Remote Production Extends Its Reach

We are not running repeats: We are on the news, where we should be. Journalistic through and through.”

— Llewellyn King, Host, "White House Chronicle"

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, April 30, 2020 / — While many weekly television shows have suspended production, due to the difficulty of producing during the COVID-19 crisis, “White House Chronicle,” a long-running news and public affairs show on PBS, SiriusXM Radio and other broadcast outlets, is very much in production, airing fresh episodes every week.

Executive Producer and Host Llewellyn King said, “Technology has come to our rescue, and it has been exciting to produce episodes remotely. Whereas we used to produce episodes either in-studio or using full crews on-site, we can now do so entirely on computers, bringing in guests from wherever the news is.”

In a recent episode, marking the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Preeti Srivastav, an energy consultant with Guidehouse, a global consultancy, joined in from Amsterdam. Also in that episode, Charmian Proskauer, an advocate for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), a disease that shuts in its victims for life, joined in from Boston.

The episode which will air beginning May 1 deals with the rise of a new generation of leaders who international lawyer Clinton Vince, who is hunkered down on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, says are coming from states and cities. Vince characterizes them on the episode as “subnational” players.

Later in the episode Jarrod Hazelton, a University of Chicago-educated economist working in Rhode Island, discusses the gig economy — and the need, as he sees it, for a new Works Progress Administration, modeled on the one created by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935. Hazelton predicts there will be many millions of Americans needing work as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

King said, ”We are a bit like the famous revue theater, The Windmill, in London’s Soho which remained open throughout the Blitz of 1940 to 1941 and was able to boast ‘We Never Closed.’ We are not running repeats: We are on the news, where we should be. Journalistic through and through.”

Stations interested in carrying the program can download it either from the PBS satellite or free of charge from

“White House Chronicle” has been on air for 23 years and aims to cover the news as it affects the “way we live now.” The weekly program has taken a special interest in technology’s impact on national policy.

Sacramento’s Premier Blues Club, The Torch Club Hosts 3-day No Cover Virtual Party

Sacramento’s Premier Blues Club Hosts 3-day No Cover Virtual Party

Women band together to help woman-owned business due to Coronavirus pandemic

3-day virtual party featuring live music, shopping, virtual happy hour with DIY cocktails invites community to SIP (support-in-place) for a Sacramento landmark

There's not a lot of businesses in Sacramento that can say they've been here for 85 years. With so many struggling, I’m honored that the community is banding together to help The Torch Club survive.”

— Marina Texeira

SACRAMENTO, CA, UNITED STATES , April 30, 2020 / — The Torch Club, Sacramento’s premier blues club, will host a series of fundraising events during a 3-day virtual party kicking off with a live music concert on Friday, May 1st, followed by a fashion fundraiser on Saturday, May 2nd, and ending with a Toast the Torch DIY cocktail party on Sunday, May 3rd. All of the live-streamed events will take place on Facebook Live.

Dubbed “SIP” (Support in Place), a group of local Sacramento women-owned businesses created the series of events to support the woman-owned business that closed more than a month ago due to the coronavirus pandemic in order to protect their patrons and employees.
Because of the indefinite closure, The Torch Club’s staff have been put in a precarious position of technically still having a job, but without the income necessary to pay for basic things like rent, food, and bills. The virtual events were designed to allow customers to continue to connect with their favorite club, inviting them to “support in place” through a series of fun online fundraisers.

“Since we can’t be face-to-face with our customers in-person and provide live music 6 nights a week as we normally would, we are going to use Facebook to stream live events and connect virtually with our patrons,” said Marina Texeira, owner of The Torch Club.

The Torch Club, a Sacramento institution, would have held its 85th-anniversary celebration this month.

"There's not a lot of businesses left in Sacramento that can say they've been here for 85 years," Texeria continued. "With so many businesses struggling, I’m honored that people in our community are banding together to help The Torch Club survive. I’m proud to have the opportunity to try to continue running the business, albeit virtually."

As one of Sacramento's oldest bars, The Torch Club is home to the best in local and national blues acts with live music six days a week. When it first opened, The Torch Club was located on 6th and J streets and was quite the watering hole for politicians. The business opened in 1934, run by Johnny “Bananas” Oreb and Ernie Maskovich, and it was one of the first local businesses, along with Old Ironsides, to receive a liquor license after Prohibition. In the '80s, the club became known as one of the best spots in the area for live blues music. The Torch Club is now located at 15th and I streets. Opening night at the new location was April 13, 2000. For the past 50 years, the Texeira family has owned the popular hangout spot. Visit for more info.
