Doris Day, Marilyn Monroe Revisited Through the Movie They Shared in ‘Goddess and the Girl Next Door’

Goddess and the Girl Next Door

Goddess and the Girl Next Door Hits Bookstores in September 2019

In many ways their roles could easily have been reversed. Monroe colored her hair, had plastic surgery to change her nose and jaw while Day took her own steps to cultivate her wholesome image.”

— John William Law

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 23, 2019 / — One of the first books to look back at the career of Doris Day since her death at the age of 97 arrives in bookstores this September. With Day’s death in May 2019 she leaves behind a legacy in music, television and film. Like another Hollywood star, Marilyn Monroe, Day spent years as a top box office draw for much of the 50s and 60s. While Monroe died in 1962, Day would walk away from Hollywood life and a generation of moviegoers and fans were not even alive when she retired from films 50 years ago.

In fact Doris Day’s film career outlasted Marilyn Monroe by little more than five years. As icons of the silver screen in the 1960s Day and Monroe were flip sides of the same coin as leading ladies of Hollywood’s golden age. While Monroe delivered a movie star goddess that men wanted to sleep with, Day was the girl next door, the star men wanted to marry and take home to mom.

With that juxtaposition comes a new book from writer John William Law that chronicles the stardom of two of Hollywood’s most iconic actresses through one film production shared by both actresses.

Goddess and the Girl Next Door details the last days of Marilyn Monroe and the production of her incomplete film, Something’s Got to Give, and how the film would resurface a year later starring Doris Day under the name Move Over, Darling.

“Many people may not know that after Monroe’s death Twentieth Century Fox took the script to Something’s Got to Give and reworked it as a Doris Day picture,” says Law. “In fact, Day was actually approached to take on the role to replace Monroe after she was fired from the picture in 1962, but she declined.”

For Goddess and the Girl Next Door, Law’s research included analysis of both scripts and other production details for Something’s Got to Give and Move Over, Darling to look at areas where the story was changed to suit the star of the picture. “The scripts are very similar in many ways in terms of story,” says Law. “What’s interesting is some of the sexual innuendo and approach to the leading lady was altered. For instance, Monroe’s nude swim scene is one of the most famous events in the history of Something’s Got to Give, but there was no way Doris Day would have agreed to such a scene for her film, so it was removed for Move Over, Darling.”

Law adds that while both women had very different screen personas there were striking similarities between them. “While just a few years apart in age, Marilyn and Doris were nearly the same height and weight, and had nearly the same measurments,” says Law. “In fact, by 1962 they had even made the same number of pictures. Had Something’s Got to Give been completed it would have been Monroe’s 33rd picture, and Move Over, Darling would be Day’s 33rd film.”

Goddess and the Girl Next Door actually even takes that premise one step further, says Law. “In many ways their roles could easily have been reversed. Monroe colored her hair, had plastic surgery to change her nose and jaw and cultivated a sexy walk and voice to create her persona, while Day took her own steps to cultivate her wholesome image. Under different circumstances one could argue that Day could easily have cultivated the sexy image following Monroe’s path and Monroe could have remained as she was and aimed for a girl next door persona.”

The new book looks back at the lives and careers of both actresses with a focus on the dawn of the 1960s and the career paths of Monroe and Day. The author even details the moments when the two women would cross paths in Hollywood on various occasions.

Published in September 2019 with pre-orders available online, Goddess and the Girl Next Door is packed with photos in a soft-cover 342-page print edition, as well as an ebook version and an enhanced ebook on iBookstore with added content. It is available where books are sold and online at major retailers like, and Apple iBookstore.

DejaOffice CRM for Android with Outlook Sync using CompanionLink

Mobile and PC CRM App features offline mode for Android, iPhone and Windows based platforms.

PORTLAND, OR, US, August 22, 2019 / — CompanionLink Software has launched DejaOffice CRM App with PC Sync for Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ phones. Owners of the Samsung Flagship phone can download DejaOffice free from the Google Play store. DejaOffice features Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes, just like Microsoft Outlook, and can also synchronize Category Colors for Calendar items, a key feature of Microsoft Outlook.

“The display size on the Note 10 Plus is a real winner,” says Wayland Bruns, CTO at DejaOffice. “With the DejaOffice App, you can see your Week View and Month view very easily. DejaOffice features persistent alarms, so you will not miss a meeting if you leave your phone on your desk for a moment. The real kicker is the live Widgets in DejaOffice. The Contact widget sits on the Galaxy Note 10 home screen, and gives you a live scroll of all of your contacts, without needing to open any App. With one tap you can dial, map or make notes for any contact.”

DejaOffice CRM App is available for Android OS, iOS and Windows PC. It is the only CRM that features offline mode on all three platforms. The CRM Industry leader has limited offline mode in its mobile apps requiring a fast broadband connection for most features to be active. Another leading CRM has local storage for Android and iPhone but lacks a native Windows PC App. Cloud based CRM apps lack offline mode. DejaOffice use local data store on Android, iPhone and PC. This allows it to have encrypted databases, and private data, that would be impossible for a cloud based solution. DejaOffice features USB, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and DejaCloud based synchronization.

DejaOffice CRM App with PC Sync is free for Android and iPhone. The PC CRM software runs on Windows 7, 8 and 10. CompanionLink pricing is one-time and not monthly, since it is not a cloud based solution. CompanionLink for Outlook offers Galaxy Note 10 Sync with Outlook Calendar, Contacts and Tasks for $49.95 one-time price.

DejaOffice PC CRM Standalone is free for personal use, and DejaCloud sync is free if you have 500 records or less. For Business use DejaOffice is $49.95 for a one-time purchase.

Roundup Options Encourages Those Diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma to Call the Attorneys at The Steinberg Law Group

Roundup Weed Killer

Roundup Weed Killer

Farmers and homeowners around the country have used glyphosate-based herbicides for decades.

Roundup Options Encourages People with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia to Call for Access to Attorneys at The Steinberg Law Group

Glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans.”

— International Agency for Research on Cancer

HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, August 22, 2019 / — The Roundup Options Help Center is dedicated to providing the best legal assistance to people stricken with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia from exposure to Roundup or other glyphosate-based weed killers. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with a member of The Steinberg Law Group.

The Roundup Options Help Center has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their decades of experience in handling mass action and class action cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps them obtain the best possible financial compensation for clients.

Roundup is a glyphosate-based herbicide originally produced by Monsanto and introduced to the consumer market in 1974. Monsanto, which Bayer acquired in 2018, developed and patented the glyphosate molecule and retained exclusive rights to glyphosate in the US until its US patent expired in September 2000 (the patent expired earlier in other countries). As a result, today, many similar products use glyphosate as an active ingredient including Ortho GroundClear, Dow DuPont Rodeo, Compare-N-Save Concentrate Grass and Weed Killer, RM43 Total Vegetation Control and Ranger Pro Herbicide.

In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer identified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen. Despite evidence that Monsanto and other producers of glyphosate-based herbicides knew of the probable cancer-causing effects of their products, consumers were not properly warned of the potential dangers. States with the highest risk of glyphosate exposure include Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa and Ohio. Even if the exposure to glyphosate occurred outside of one’s home state, The Steinberg Law Group can still obtain the maximum financial compensation available.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and used Roundup or other glyphosate-based herbicides after 1990, the Roundup Options Help Center encourages calling (888) 891-2200 or visiting for more information on how The Steinberg Law Group can help.

How Employers Can Encourage Healthy Eating at Work

An office cafeteria

Twitter hospitality tables for their lounge space

Busch break room furniture of their lounge cafeteria

Weldmarx I Sit To Stand Desk

There’s a revolution taking place in today’s corporate cafeterias.

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, August 22, 2019 / — How Did Office Cafeterias Go Gourmet?

If we could go back 30 years to ask the question: “What’s your favorite office cafeteria or restaurant?” we probably would have gotten quite a few blank stares in response. Such was the state of affairs for the much-maligned office cafeteria in those days.

Someone might’ve suggested the United States Senate dining room at the Capitol in Washington, DC — where politicians, lobbyists, and reporters rubbed shoulders (wearing formal jackets and dresses of course, per the dress code). But, despite the high-power guests and Federalist decor, the menu selections were as uninspiring as the signature Senate Bean Soup, which has been on offer each day for more than a hundred years.

The situation today is altogether different. As we’ll see below, hardly a month goes by without a major announcement of a new corporate cafeteria opening up that rivals anything in the local restaurant scene.

But like most revolutions, this transformation didn’t happen overnight. To get where we are today took a journey of more than two decades, starting with a new cafe concept in the San Francisco Bay area.

If you’re thinking about Alice Waters and her groundbreaking Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, you’re not far off. Waters has single-handedly helped develop the modern American palette and our appetite for eating locally grown food.

But there is another figure who helped transform the lackluster world of corporate and institutional cafeterias into the modern gourmand era, the restaurant entrepreneur Fedele Bauccio.

Larry Ellison, the co-founder of the software database giant Oracle, gave Bauccio his first big break in the corporate catering world of Silicon Valley, selecting his company to create a paninonteca, or Italian sandwich shop. Soon Bauccio’s company, Bon Appetit Management Company, opened a series of different cafe offerings at Oracle, each featuring a different cuisine.

Over time, Bon Appetit’s concept of providing high-quality, locally-sourced food took root all across Silicon Valley. The company now operates more than 500 corporate cafeterias at leading tech companies, including Adobe, eBay, Google, LinkedIn, and Yahoo. At Google’s Mountain View headquarters alone, Bon Appetit operates more than 30 different cafes.

The Top 5 Reasons You Should Introduce Healthy Food Options In Your Office
Is the trend toward upgrading corporate cafeterias on your radar?

We look at five reasons you might want to make the switch to offering healthier food options in the office.

1. Cafeterias That Support Your Brand Message Are Becoming An Essential Talent Recruiting Tool

Given the ongoing shortage of tech talent, leading tech and finance companies are making an investment in cafe amenities to build up their brand as a cool place to work.

The resulting transformation of the once mundane corporate cafeteria into a “must try” food destination hasn’t gone unnoticed in the culinary, restaurant, and food service industry, as this deep dive article by Bon Appetit (the magazine, not Fedele Bauccio’s company!) explains:

“Where boomers were swayed by sturdy 401-k plans and reliable retirement packages, today’s labor force—particularly those interested in tech-y and internetty jobs—are wooed by snacks, sustainability, and farm-to-cubicle ethics. And these companies are happy to keep them at the office longer, both in the span of a day and the span of a career.”

In other words, Millennials and Gen Z employees prefer to start their careers at companies that cater (pardon the pun) to their needs and desires, which skew toward workplaces with college campus-inspired open office environments, sustainable business practices, and healthy food choices.

Among these aspirations, it’s the latter one, healthy food choices, that often winds up as the most talked about amenity shared among their peers on social media. Indeed, Instagrammable food pics send a signal to their friends and followers (who, in turn, represent a significant pool of potential job recruits) that company X, Y or Z “is a cool place to work, just look at the food! #delicious.”

2. Skip Sad Desk Lunches. Use Mealtimes To Converse And Collaborate With Colleagues At Work

In a world where we are trying to kick-start worker productivity by encouraging spontaneous collaborations, corporate cafeterias offer a unique opportunity to connect with your co-workers while you savor your meal.

By investing in a central eating location, companies can avoid the food diaspora that occurs at lunchtime. At lunchtime, a certain percentage of employees head for the exits to partake in a longish lunch at some local establishment, while another group hovers worryingly around the kitchen mess, waiting for their moment to get a chance to heat up their salty microwave meal before they muddle through another “sad desk lunch.”

What a missed opportunity.

If you are concerned about lack of communication and missed opportunities for collaboration among your employees, then you should consider an investment in a new or upgraded cafeteria.

It can also help improve productivity by reducing those “long lunches” off campus. A recent study by Towers Watson indicates that having food available at work can save employees between 30 and 60 minutes at lunchtime.

Not sure how to go about it? Talk to one of our friendly Formaspace Office Design Consultants who will share their experience of creating cafeteria furniture for leading companies, such as CapitalOne and Twitter.

3. Good Nutrition Is A Cornerstone Of Good Employee Health

Companies have a reason to be concerned about their employee’s health, particularly due to the alarming increase in incidences of obesity and diabetes that are affecting American workers.

Increasing the activity of your workers at the office is part of the solution.

Getting up and moving around during the day is important; in fact, the negative health aspects of sitting for hours at a time has given rise to the phrase “Sitting is the New Smoking.” That’s why we recommend taking a look at our line of Sit-to-Stand desks, workstations, and conference tables. These innovative furniture designs allow you to change your seating position during the day, from sitting in a chair to standing, in order to improve your cardiovascular health. Taking breaks and walking throughout the day is also part of the solution, including taking a walk to the cafeteria.

Having a cafeteria on site is another way to help your employees live a healthier lifestyle.

Onsite cafeterias will encourage your employees to eat regular meals throughout the day. Research shows many Americans skip meals entirely during the workday. Serving proper portions of healthy food on a regular time schedule can help prevent/control obesity and diabetes.

You can also help “nudge” employees to avoid excessive calories by offering smaller plate sizes (which make us feel fuller with the same caloric intake) as well as changing the menu and recipe choices.

Consider reinforcing healthy eating choices in the cafeteria with other wellness programs, such as an onsite gym or workout facility.

For many employees, using a fitness app, such as MyFitnessPal, LoseIt or FitBit, can help reinforce calorie control and encourage a healthy, active lifestyle.

4. Rethink Food Offerings To Provide Healthier, More Sustainable Options

Companies like Google are taking the concept of calorie control a step further.

For example, the recipe for hamburgers offered at their cafeterias has slowly shifted to include more plant-based ingredients, such as mushrooms.

And healthier vegan choices are promoted more prominently on menus to encourage eating less meat.

It’s all part of Google’s overall plan to reduce the company’s impact on the planet by reducing consumption of livestock, dairy, and egg production that contributes to global carbon emissions.

What can you do at your company?

From birthday cakes to pizza parties, the office makes it difficult for individuals to control calories and make good nutrition choices. One place to start is by replacing sugary and high-caloric snacks with healthy alternatives. Phase out cakes and “treats” with healthy alternatives that have less sugar and more nutrient content. Eliminate pastries and other “treats” provided during long office meetings with healthy alternatives based on fruit and vegetables.

What about snacking throughout the day?

Snacking is not inherently bad. In fact, some nutritionists recommend we eat many smaller mini-meals throughout the day rather than two or three big meals. But we need to eliminate the temptation of sugary late afternoon snacks. Swap out the vending machine and replace it with healthy snack choices.

What if you don’t have a cafeteria at your office?

If you don’t have an office cafeteria, you can organize healthy potlucks where people bring healthy food options from home. For example, a salad club encourages each participating person to bring a special salad topping or side dish.

5. Teach Gardening, Food Preparation, And Cooking Skills For A Healthier Lifestyle At The Office And In The Community

Companies like Adobe and Google are now going beyond just providing healthy food in the cafeteria — they are using their kitchens as teaching tools to educate their employees about the food we eat.

Employees can participate in cooking classes taught by corporate chefs in specially designed kitchens that mimic the type of residential kitchen the employees have at home. These classes go beyond just recipes, they include learning about where food comes from (especially locally-sourced produce), how to be an educated food shopper, and, of course, how to cook healthy recipes at home.

This is an important effort, because many of today’s workers are very disconnected from food sources, instead, relying on pre-packaged, highly processed foods.

Companies can help by partnering with a local community garden, participating in farmer “shares” programs, or arranging buying trips to local farmer markets.

Programs such as these encourage your employees to become healthy food advocates in the communities where they live. You can reinforce this message by offering healthy food from your company garden to visitors and partner companies attending meetings at your facilities.

“For me, the Pacific Ocean is a strong influence; that’s the core of the exhibition,” said Duville. “The exhibition is a dialogue between the ocean and the desert, focusing on how they impact each other.”
His work is characterized by experimentation with expressive strokes and procedures which reveal a certain brutality. In his practice, Duville navigates questions such as permeability between inside and outside through the process of drawing, sculptures, moving images, and music with his band Centolla Society. The tension between opposites, mutation and time are some of the subjects that feature in his most recent works.

“The principle of this exhibit is not solely based on aesthetics, it’s conceptual,” said Stefanie Hessler, guest curator. “The idea of the convergence between the ocean and land is conveyed in the layout of the presentation.”

Duville’s artworks have been collected by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection, Fundación ARCO in Spain, Blanton Museum of Art in Texas, and the Modern Art Museum in Buenos Aires among others. His recent projects include The Valise Project (MoMA, New York, 2017), Arena Parking (Art Basel, Miami, 2016), Arena Parking (Centro Cultural Recoleta, Buenos Airea, 2015), Mutações (MAM, Rio de Janeiro, 2015), Precipitar una especie, (Barro, Buenos Aires, 2014), Discard Geography (Ecole de Beaux Arts, Chapelle des Petits-Augustins, Paris, 2013), Safari (Malba, 2013) and Alaska (Drawing Center, New York, 2013).

Duville’s “desert means ocean” exhibit will be on display at MOLAA from Sunday, August 25 through Saturday, December 1. The Museum of Latin American Art is located at 628 Alamitos Ave. in Long Beach. MOLAA is open Wednesday through Sunday with general admission priced at $10. For more information, visit MOLAA’s website at or call (562) 437-1689.

Verify Markets B2B Market Research and Consulting

The market is primarily driven by planned plant shutdowns, emergencies, and economic growth in certain regions.

SAN ANTONIO, TX, UNITED STATES, August 22, 2019 / — A new analysis by Verify Markets shows the European air compressor rental market was valued at over $700 million in 2018 and is expected to reach revenues over $1.0 billion by 2025.

The European air compressor rental market is primarily driven by planned plant shutdowns, emergencies, and economic growth in certain regions. Additionally, increasing end user preferences to make compressed air and other utility costs a part of their operational expenditure has been driving the air compressor rental market in certain regions across Europe.

UK and Ireland had the largest revenue share within the European air compressor rental market in 2018. Atlas Copco Rental Europe NV emerged as the market leader within European air compressor rental market. Offshore opportunities in the UK primarily lie within the oil and gas industry. The construction and manufacturing industries have been the predominant end user groups within the oil-flooded and oil-free air compressor rental market.

Increasing efforts by end users to improve the sustainability of their operations and reduce their carbon footprint and energy use are major challenges for diesel air compressor rental companies. Stage V emissions standards for non-road machinery in 2019/20 are bringing new challenges for companies. Introducing cleaner and better-performing diesel compressors will likely drive up rental prices during the forecast period.
Several leading air compressor rental providers have started offering smart, connected, and efficient technology solutions to ensure high customer satisfaction and provide extra value to customers. Compressed air management systems, for instance, variable frequency drives (VFD) and Atlas Copco’s SMARTLINK, are becoming increasingly common due to their abilities to achieve energy efficiencies as well as cut costs.
