Circe WeeklyReviewer

“A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess’s story,” this #1 New York Times bestseller is “both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right” (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times).

In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child — not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power — the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.

Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.

But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.

With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language, and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man’s world.

#1 New York Times Bestseller — named one of the Best Books of the Year by NPR, the Washington Post, People, Time, Amazon, Entertainment Weekly, Bustle, Newsweek, the A.V. Club, Christian Science Monitor, Refinery 29, Buzzfeed, Paste, Audible, Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Thrillist, NYPL, Self, Real Simple, Goodreads, Boston Globe, Electric Literature, BookPage, the Guardian, Book Riot, Seattle Times, and Business Insider.

Monster Energy Releases New 'Aspire – Inspire' Feature on Skateboarder Rune Glifberg


CORONA, Calif., June 13, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Witness the rise of an enduring skateboard icon: Monster Energy is proud to announce Episode 3 of the ‘Aspire – Inspire’ mini-documentary video series, starring innovative skateboard legend Rune Glifberg. Released to global audiences today across Monster Energy’s social media channels, the 13-minute video highlights the story of the 46-year-old Olympic Skateboard Park discipline skater hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark.

Known for his boundary-pushing tricks and effortless style on vert terrain, Glifberg has built one of the longest and accomplished careers in modern-day skateboarding. After relocating to the United States in 1995 as part of the legendary Flip Skateboards team, the Scandinavian ripper had a profound influence on the evolution of vertical skateboarding. As showcased in ‘Aspire – Inspire’, Glifberg is currently preparing to represent his native Denmark in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

The Rune Glifberg episode is the third installment in the ‘Aspire – Inspire’ mini-documentary skateboard video series produced by Monster Energy. Mixing interviews, skate action, and archival footage, the series chronicles the origin stories of inspiring personalities on the Monster Energy skate team.

Viewers can now learn the story behind Glifberg’s rise from European transplant to vert skating royalty in Episode 3 of ‘Aspire – Inspire’ on YouTube here. Filmed on location in Copenhagen, Denmark, this episode was produced by Marco Savino with additional filming by Henner Coelho de Figueiredo. The video captures Glifberg shredding the city’s skateparks, supplemented by a guest appearance of his idol, Danish Bones Brigade legend Nicky Guerrero.

“I think my biggest influence growing up as a kid was Nicky Guerrero. He was from here, from Copenhagen, and he basically turned pro right around time when I started skateboarding. He had all the right sponsors and a great style skateboarding. He was the perfect role model for me to aspire to,” said Glifberg in the episode.

Glifberg discovered skateboarding at age 11 when he received an American skateboard as a gift. This put the young Dane on a trajectory to travel the world and explore his surroundings with a skateboarder’s mindset. “When I started skateboarding at around 11, I automatically had a desire to go and seek out new places to go skate,” said Glifberg in the documentary.

His search also led Glifberg to advance his skate skills rapidly. In 1990, he earned his first sponsorship at a Scandinavian Open contest in Copenhagen. “From that very moment when I first got sponsored, I just got some spark inside.” After entering his first pro contest in France in 1990, he earned a pro model board on UK-based hardgoods brand Flip Skateboards in 1992, which put rocket boots on his travels.

Following years of competing across Europe and touring extensively with the team, Glifberg took a leap of faith: In 1995, he relocated from Denmark to Costa Mesa, California, right after finishing high school to establish Flip Skateboards in the United States. “It was a brand-new beginning. Leaving your family behind and everyone. I had never been to America before so for me it was kind of like an expedition or exploration of the world.”

Freshly arrived in the U.S., Glifberg proceeded to make a name for himself. At a time when vert riding was redefined by a new generation of pros, Glifberg brought a potent mixture to the table: A talent for blasting high airs, contorted with grace and style, mixed with kickflips and switch stance variations adapted from street skating into vertical terrain. Almost overnight, the skateboard community took notice when footage of Glifberg appeared in videos such as the 411 Video Magazine series and TransWorld Skateboarding Magazine releases.

Plus, the rookie also possessed the competitive talent required for pro status in the 1990s. In 1995, Glifberg competed in the very first X Games (‘Extreme Games’ at the time) in Rhode Island and took third place in an elite field of riders including skateboard icon Tony Hawk. Earning the nickname ‘The Danish Destroyer’ for his style and explosive energy, Glifberg battled head-to-head against Hawk in 1997’s legendary X Games Skateboard Vert final and finished in close second place.

“Competitions can definitely help solidify your name, get you out to a broader audience. And also show back to the skateboarding world that a particular person has a unique skill set. That they are able to focus and string tricks together, doing stuff when it counts,” said Glifberg in ‘Aspire – Inspire’.

Being able to land difficult tricks when it counts, Glifberg advanced to win the world’s most prestigious halfpipe competitions, sometimes several times in a row, including the Slam City Jam in Vancouver (1996, 1998), Tampa Pro (2003), Gravity Games (2001, 2004), Vans Pro-Tec Pool Party (2005, 2007, 2008), Mystic Sk8 Cup (2006), and Copenhagen Pro Vert (2007, 2009).

Glifberg’s pro career also entered a highly successful second act when the competitive focus shifted from halfpipes to Park skating, a mixture of vertical bowls and street elements. After earning back-to-back gold medals in Park skateboarding at X Games Los Angeles 2008 and 2009, he continued to range as a podium threat in the discipline. Glifberg now holds 12 X Games medals (2 gold, 3 silver, and 7 bronze). Beyond the contest arena, he has inspired entire generations of skateboarders as a playable character in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series of video games.

What’s more, the father of two daughters actively nurtures upcoming skate talent in his new career path: designing public skateparks as a partner and co-founder of Glifberg – Lykke, a skatepark architecture and design office in Copenhagen. But make no mistake: Glifberg still very much destroys vertical terrain as a pro skater with a recent string of podium finishes in key competitions. In 2017, he took the win at the European Continental Championships in the Vans Park Series and placed second in the coveted Vans Combi Pool Party contest (Masters Division) in 2019.

Also in 2019, Glifberg placed first in the Danish National Championships in Park skating, which earned him a ticket to skateboarding’s upcoming debut at the Tokyo Olympics this summer. With 6,180 points on the Olympic World Skateboarding Rankings, the innovator who has built one of the most successful and respected careers in skateboarding will represent Denmark in an elite field of 20 skateboarders competing for Olympic gold in the Skate Park discipline this summer.    

“I think skateboarding is really important to the Olympics. I think it’s good for the masses to see skateboarding. I feel like skateboarding has a lot of unseen potential of what we can do with skateboarding and how skateboarding can help personal growth and help you inspire,” said Glifberg, adding: “For me to represent Denmark at the Olympics would be huge. I feel like we are a great skateboard nation. As a skateboard community, we have something unique here. So for me it’s just important for Denmark to be on the skateboarding map.”

City Kia of Werner Auto Group Partners with Shop Smart Autos

ORLANDO, Fla., June 13, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — City Kia of Orlando Florida, part of the Werner Auto Group of Tallahassee, Florida announced its partnership with Shop Smart Autos for their lead generation and digital media platform. Shop Smart Autos offers the consumer a seamless journey from shopping to delivering a vehicle and shares the dealer’s VIN specific inventory to bring shoppers and dealers together in an exclusive exchange. Shop Smart Autos does not share their leads with other dealers, rather it drives consumers directly to the dealer’s VIN specific inventory with up to 21 points of information on the shopper.

“Shop Smart Autos work with Veterans was what first captured our attention. City Kia and the entire Werner Auto Group appreciates how Shop Smart Autos sends veterans to “veteran friendly” dealerships like us,” said Raul Gomila, City Kia’s General Manager.

Raul and team at City Kia, Orlando must be doing something right, as City Kia just hit number one in the country May 2021 for CPO. The Werner Auto Group is relying on Shop Smart Autos to drive veterans, as well as the general population in the region. Shop Smart Autos offers dealers an exclusive VIN specific lead with a full list of complementary services like SMS and Geofencing technologies. The platform comes with full reporting on lead generation, Dealertrack, Kelley Blue Book, a dashboard with the dealer’s inventory turn, and data on the overall market wins and losses.

“The car business is no easy game. It is a highly competitive arena for our dealers and they push to get the most within a fairly small marketplace. It is really important that we see more dealers like City Kia take a special interest in our US Military veterans. We link the veterans to a City Kia’s VIN specific vehicle. They help veterans. We help them. That’s just the start. We know that without dealer support and analytics there is no continuity or success. We supply all they need to have their BDC department hum,” said Richie Bello, Founder of Shop Smart.

Bello is considered an automotive influencer. Recognized by General Motors in 1999 for his forward thinking, Bello made a deal with eBay to sell cars for a dealer he represented in Long Island New York. That dealer introduced the industry to the use of digital technology, moving the trend away from using traditional media exclusively. Bello’s background includes a stint with R.L. Polk where he cut his gums on data. He continued his career in the industry and began developing software that meets the needs of the industry.

The Werner Auto Group has been a long-time supporter of our US Military veterans and remains a recognized “veteran friendly” dealer that works with veterans to put together as many of the entitlements they can receive. They truly believe that veterans deserve the professional advise and their experience. They also know that making a veteran happy will mean more veterans will follow.

AJC Welcomes Knesset Approval of New Israeli Government

NEW YORK, June 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — American Jewish Committee (AJC) congratulates incoming Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Alternate Prime Minister Yair Lapid on successfully forming a new government in Israel. 

The “change coalition” emerged in negotiations following the March 23 elections, the fourth ballot in Israel in less than two years. Today’s Knesset vote approving the coalition formally ends the premiership of Benjamin Netanyahu, who was in office for 15 years, 12 consecutively, the longest-serving prime minister in Israeli history.

“The new Israeli government reflects the country’s diversity and is determined to pursue peace, security, and prosperity,” said AJC CEO David Harris. “AJC looks forward to working with the new coalition, as we have consistently done with every Israeli government since 1948, and we wish the leadership every success.”

Israel’s 36th government is comprised of eight parties from across Israel’s political spectrum, including, for the first time ever, an Israeli Arab party. Yamina party chief Naftali Bennett, who addressed the AJC Global Forum in 2018, will first serve as prime minister, and Yesh Atid party chief Yair Lapid, who addressed the AJC Global Forum in 2015, will succeed him in 2023. 

President Rivlin had tasked Lapid with forming the coalition after Netanyahu, head of the Likud Party, was unable to assemble the required 61 MKs in support of a coalition.

Harris, who, most recently, met with Netanyahu in the prime minister’s office in Jerusalem last month, praised the premier’s legacy.

“The prime minister of Israel is unquestionably among the most challenging leadership positions in the world,” said Harris. “Prime Minister Netanyahu demonstrated impressive leadership on many issues, including expanding Israel’s diplomatic ties with nations around the world, extending peace with four Arab countries, maintaining Israel’s security in a volatile region, promoting exceptional achievements in innovation, spearheading the widely-admired handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, and explaining eloquently Israel’s unique challenges on the global stage. Moreover, his door was always open to AJC, including our young lay and staff leaders, Project Interchange visitors, and Global Forum invitations.”

“We will gladly work with the new government, where appropriate, to help build on these remarkable achievements, as well as to strengthen the essential ties that bind the Jewish state and Jews around the world,” Harris added.

AJC, the leading global Jewish advocacy organization, opened an office in Jerusalem 60 years ago. Today, it is directed by Avital Leibovich.
