09/04 ED HENRY, 42 FAITH, THE REST OF THE JACKIE ROBINSON STORY, MELISSA FRANCIS, FOX NEWS CHANNEL HOST, RISING CABLE STAR, AND AUTHOR OF LESSONS FROM THE PRAIRIE

ED HENRY - BROADCAST JOURNALIST & FOX NEWS CHANNEL'S CHIEF WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT - NEW BOOK: 42 FAITH THE REST OF THE JACKIE ROBINSON STORY

Journalist and baseball lover Ed Henry reveals for the first time the backstory of faith that guided Jackie Robinson into not only the baseball record books but the annals of civil rights advancement as well. Through recently discovered sermons, interviews with Robinson’s family and friends, and even an unpublished book by the player himself, Henry details a side of Jackie’s humanity that few have taken the time to see.

Branch Rickey, the famed owner who risked it all by signing Jackie to his first contract, is also shown as a complex individual who wanted nothing more than to make his God-fearing mother proud of him. Few know the level at which Rickey struggled with his decision, only moving forward after a private meeting with a minister he’d just met. It turns out Rickey was not as certain about signing Robinson as historians have always assumed.

With many baseball stories to enthrall even the most ardent enthusiast, 42 Faith also digs deep into why Jackie was the man he was and what both drove him and challenged him after his retirement.  From his early years before baseball, to his time with Rickey and the Dodgers, to his failing health in his final years, we see a man of faith that few have recognized.

This book will add a whole new dimension to Robinson’s already awe-inspiring legacy.
Yes, Jackie and Branch are both still heroes long after their deaths.  Now, we learn more fully than ever before, there was an assist from God too.

MIKE AHMADI - CYBERSECURITY EXPERT WITH SYNOPSYS - WHAT BUSINESSES NEED TO DO TO STAY SAFE 

CYBERSECURITY: WHAT ARE THE CURRENT THREATS?

Cybersecurity Expert Provides Insights on What Businesses Need to Do to Stay Safe 
               
The world’s dependence on software and internet connectivity keeps growing. Virtually, everything – healthcare systems, online banking, critical parts of our infrastructure, and more rely on software to function. Securing the software that powers our connected world has become paramount, especially as cybercriminals and hackers are finding new ways to steal information and compromise their targets.

Recently, one attack that has gained popularity with cybercriminals is ransomware. In order to get up and running again, the victims of these attacks are being forced to pay a ransom to those who have hacked into their files.  In the first half of this year high profile cases of ransomware like the WannaCry and NotPetya have dominated the headlines. So far in 2017, 12.3 million records have been compromised, including almost 7.5 million within the business sector.  The average cost of a data breach is $3.62 million, representing a 10 percent decrease from 2016, but still astronomical to a thriving business.
 
Cybersecurity expert Mike Ahmadi will be available on Thursday July 27 to discuss the persistent and growing threat landscape, what’s wrong with the way software is being developed, and the most effective methods for organizations to mitigate risks and do better.
