Self-help book to assist people in their 40s in reevaluating, realigning and rebooting their lives
Diane Mullen steps into the publishing world with
‘43 YEAR OLD FEMALE’
Taking inspiration from her own experiences and realizations that resulted in her life reboot, Diane Mullen writes “43 YEAR OLD FEMALE” (published by AuthorHouse), a book that serves as a foundation and inspiration to reevaluate, realign and reboot life during a person’s 40s.
Mullen’s book presents a method to rebooting lives, including tips and tools to train the brain and body using change of habit, as well as how to apply the same method to take action on your bucket list and daily life happiness.
“43 YEAR OLD FEMALE” will greatly help people who are entering midlife. “I think that when people enter their 40s, they start to look at their life with more clarity, or want to. It is a friendly wake-up call for those that feel this desire and courage to take a deeper look,” Mullen says.
Through her first published book, Mullen hopes to relay that it is important to stop long enough to truly see where a person’s life is going and determine whether it matches their inner compass. “Your 40s is a decade in life that, in many ways, opens you up to make changes that actually stick. You know yourself more authentically because you’ve experienced life more thoroughly,” she explains.

FITZGERALD REDD BEAVER (FITZ) (1922–1992)
Fitzgerald Beaver was born January 18, 1922, in Martinsville, Virginia. He graduated from high school in Martinsville and then attended North Carolina A & T College in Greensboro, North Carolina in the late 1930s. Beaver left college without graduating and worked as a railroad porteracross the United States. By the beginning of World War II he had arrived in the Pacific Northwest and was living in the city of Portland, Oregon.
During the war “Fitz” Beaver, as he was now known, worked briefly for the U.S. Army as a civilian employee and then was hired by the Kaiser Company in Portland as a shipyard worker. After the war he briefly resided in North Bend, Oregon where he worked at a local radio station. Finding a career he liked, he moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue radio and public relations training.
In 1955, he returned to Portland and at the age of 33 became a local radio personality known as “Eager Beaver.” In 1961, Beaver moved to Seattle, Washington to manage radio station KZAM-FM, the first black-owned radio station in the Pacific Northwest. He stayed at the station only a few months before launching The FACTS newspaper on September 7, 1961.
The FACTS quickly became a major media presence in black Seattle. The paper’s mission stated: “We try to pick up where the daily papers leave off” meaning the paper would focus on stories not covered by the major daily newspapers but which were of particular interest to black Seattleites. He gave the paper a distinctive “pink” color to separate it from its competitors. By the late 1960s, Beaver authored a popular column called “Right On!” that discussed local and regional issues.
Beaver was an eclectic personality who often clashed with other black journalists over news related to African Americans such as coverage of the race riots in Seattle and across the nation in the late 1960s. His FACTS newspaper also became a community icon. Its office, on the corner of Cherry Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way, was a familiar landmark in Seattle’s Central District with an old truck situated on top of the slanted roof and a large reader board.
Despite his clashes with other black journalists Beaver also hired numerous young black journalists who went on to other newspapers. Chris Bennett, owner and publisher of a competing African American weekly newspaper, The Medium, and Ernie Foster, publisher of The Skanner newspaper in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington, were aided by Beaver when they established their respective new
An ardent golfer, Beaver was a founding member of the predominantly African American Fir State Golf Club. He also served as president of the Boys and Girls Club in Seattle and worked with the Army, Navy and Coast Guard in minority recruiting programs in the 1970s and 1980s.
Fitzgerald “Fitz” Beaver died on
New Year’s Day, 1992 in Seattle, Washington at the age of 69.
Survivors include his wife, Elizabeth, and their three children, Dennis, Marla, and LaVonne Beaver who are the current publishers of the newspaper.

Hosted by Teach For America Washington, WAnderlust Weekend is an opportunity for current and prospective educators and champions to develop a greater understanding of the unique educational landscape here in Washington. Participants will engage with our theme, “Reimagining Education with 2020 Vision” firsthand by participating in district and charter school visits, networking with educational organizations, non-profits, and schools at a hiring and resource fair, attending dynamic professional development in breakout sessions, hearing from change-makers and thought leaders in the education space, and celebrating all that is possible in Washington at our annual Winter Soiree.
It starts with two iconic voices that are as unmistakable as they are soaring polar opposites. Indeed, the gruff, powerful Eddie Levert and the proverbial silky smooth Walter Williams, Sr., both founding members of the celebrated R&B group The O’Jays, are so ingrained in the great American songbook that their body of work has become an indelible landmark in the pop culture consciousness.
We all know the anthems that for more than four decades have moved seamlessly from soul and pop to funk and disco: “Love Train,” “For The Love of Money,” “Livin’ for the Weekend,” “Family Reunion,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “I Love Music,” “Cry Together…”
The hits are endless; The O’Jays’ legacy, as documented by their profound influence on hip-hop to soul, is undeniable. With 10 gold and 9 platinum albums, omnipresent singles, and a string of sold-out tours, no one would blame The O’Jays for sitting back and enjoying the fruits of their remarkable 60-year career. But Eddie and Walter, along with group member Eric Nolan Grant, are different kinds of cats.

Ciara launched her own record and entertainment company, Beauty Marks Entertainment (BME); the venture was launched for her to follow her own creative direction and release her music on her own terms, with the singer eventually hoping to sign additional artists. BME’s first endeavor was the release of the singles “Level Up“, “Freak Me”, and “Dose” in 2018, while Ciara officially announced its formation on February 7, 2019 at the MAKERS Conference.
Ciara announced that her seventh studio album would be titled Beauty Marks after her label and that it would be released on May 10, 2019. The album was made available for pre-order the following day, along with its fifth single, “Thinkin’ Bout You”.

The single peaked at 59 on the US Billboard Hot 100, while its music video inspired the viral “level up dance challenge”. Ciara also challenged fans to share three ways that they hoped to “level up” in life in promotion of the single. The song was certified Gold by the RIAA. With the success of “Level Up”, Ciara released the album’s second single, “Freak Me”, featuring Nigerian rapper, Tekno, less than a month later on August 10, 2018.
“Dose” was released as the album’s third single on September 14, 2018, after premiering on ESPN. The song’s music video premiered on October 25, 2018 (Ciara’s 33rd birthday). The album’s fourth single, “Greatest Love“, was released alongside its music video on February 11, 2019, to coincide with Valentine’s Day.
“Thinkin Bout You” was released as the fifth single on March 29, 2019, along with the album’s pre-order. Its music video premiered that same day. Ciara released a music video for the album’s title track on May 11, 2019 and was scheduled to release one for the album’s third track, “Set”, on June 14, 2019.
Ciara is married to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. They began dating in early 2015 and announced their engagement on March 11, 2016. They were married on July 6, 2016, at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. Together, they have one child, a daughter, born on April 28, 2017.
