Your Smartphone Should Have A Big Stick

Allen Hirsch, a renowned New York City artist, has made every available smartphone much more user friendly and accommodating. No more dropping your phone and losing data. The new HANDL Stick, from $10 to $20, (depending on the materials used), attaches to the back of your phone (or case) with an adhesive strip. The strip is stronger than Popeye and the patented brace and elastic system makes your phone feel like it is floating in your hand. .

Why are we interviewing Allen? We love the HANDL Stick and want everyone to know about it. Allen is a close friend who deserves credit for connecting a painter’s artistic touch to the most advantageous way to hold your cell. HANDL Stick also allows you to use landscape or in portrait mode. The Stick gives you a hands free option for desk use.

Steve Greenberg, a TV personality and Lois Whitman-Hess, a PR expert, interview Allen on their podcast, “Lying on the Beach,” because they got the exclusive information on this marvelous and affordable invention.

Other structures in his book show how municipal politics  aka corruption — impacted the rise of the department store, live theater and public housing. The book isn’t really about design, but how occupants have used these buildings over the years.   And you’ll learn why a spice shop on Lexington Ave is so important to US Presidential history.

He is also the author of several books and has a major role in the new Roy Cohn documentary.  Sam interviewed Roy several times in the 1970’s and 80’s.  He learned a great deal about the Trump mentor and shares those insights during the film and with us on Lying on The Beach.  Join us.

It’s NEVER Too Late To Re-Invent Your Life

Loren Pomerantz is living the life so many of us dream of. At the age of 50, this New Yorker decided to give herself a gift that would change her life forever. She joined a travel network called “Remote Year” that allows you to connect with other professionals who together work and live like locals from four to 12 months in exciting cities around the world. 

Loren was at least 20 years older than most but that didn’t stop her blending into the group who were made up of people who live in different parts of the world and have jobs that allow them to work remotely in the digital age. Loren is a successful public relations agent who represents companies in a variety of fields.

Most of us can’t imagine what it would be like to experience the life Loren led two years ago. She is with us today to tell us all about it and how she has maintained this lifestyle on her own since the Remote Year ended. We are catching up with Loren in Stockholm where her evening is now our afternoon. Welcome Loren to Lying on the Beach.
