Intriguing YA Novel About History of American Soul Food Written by Ramona L Thomas, M.Ed.and soon to Exhibit at FBF 2023.

The Frankfurt Book Fair (Frankfurter Buchmesse) brings together thousands of global publishers, and plenty of them will be setting up numerous book exhibits. Each new publication will be sharing different stories and ideas from many different parts of the world. So, for educator-turned-author Ramona Thomas Nickens, its a great opportunity to share her book, IDK!, a YA story that explores the surprising facts about Americas unique culinary history.

San Diego, CA – WEBWIRE

As a person who has eaten American food their entire life, and thought they knew American food origins I learned quite a bit following the main character, Kyndle, on his journey of exploration. Its a fast read appropriate for both youths and adults. Thought provoking. And a few twists and turns added for good measure. N. E. T.

The Frankfurt Book Fair, also known as Frankfurter Buchmesse, is one of the largest book fairs in Europe, bringing together global publishers both big and small. Visitors can expect thousands of book exhibits featuring stories, information and ideas from the four corners of the world.

This will also include dozens of different books about food, food culture, and even the history behind them. So, for educator-turned-author Ramona Thomas Nickens, M.Ed, its an exciting chance to display her own recent book, IDK!

Nickens has already written a couple books before, with one also discussing the nature of food and the importance of healthy, natural choices. In IDK!, however, she delves into Americas cultural history and its impact on the cuisine that many people recognize today.

The book follows Kyndle, a young student working on his own International Day project. In one class, however, his teacher asks the students to name their own cultures distinct food. Kyndle is part of a very diverse classroom. He struggles to pin down what exactly to recommend.

As readers follow the young boy in his search, they will soon learn about the incredible history and tradition behind American soul food as well its impact. So, for Nickens to exhibit such a story in an international book fair like the Frankfurt Book Fair (Frankfurter Buchmesse), its only fitting.

IDK! by Ramona Thomas Nickens, M.Ed, will be displayed at the self-publishing and book marketing ReadersMagnets exhibit during the Frankfurt Book Fair. The book trade fair will occur from October 18 to 22, 2023, at the Frankfurt Trade Fair grounds, Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1, 60327 Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

IDK! is available on Amazon. To learn more about Nickens other books, visit her website at

Novel US Organizational App for Dating Provides Safety Features to Protect 50 Million App Users

 In the US, 21% of women and 9% of men say that they feel unsafe when going on their first date. My Little Black Book wants to minimize these safety concerns.

My Little Black Book has a range of safety features that aim to make its users feel safer using their favorite apps for dating. The first is a “safety check-in” system that allows users to send their location, who they are on the date with, and how long they are expected to be in the date to a safety contact they added into the MLBB app. When the date is over, the user can “check” out again, updating their safety contact with their current location or the location that they’re traveling to next.

The Pew Research Center noted in 2020 that 30% of US adults use online dating apps, but many users – “particularly young women – report being harassed or sent explicit messages on these platforms.” An added layer of protection could be to use Incognito phone number.

This My Little Black Book in-app purchase provides the user with a burner phone number so potential suitors can message and ring that instead of their actual phone number until they feel comfortable providing it. This allows the user the possibility of keeping their personal life separate from their dating life without having to change numbers if things go wrong.

For those wanting to go even further, an in-app purchase allows users to vet potential dates using dating background checks. These detailed checks are some of the most in-depth background checks available to the market and aim to eliminate catfishing and scam accounts from websites and in-app dating.

When combined with an exciting new future update – the Panic Button feature, users will have touch button access to alert trained safety personnel to assess the situation if things go wrong. The safety personnel are highly trained to know when to contact the police to ensure MLBB users’ safety. The Panic Button feature will have access to 911 dispatch coast to coast and use location information provided by the MLBB to dispatch police swiftly to their location.

To Date Safer, users can get the app for free exclusively on Google Play Store.

Novel patching material for bone defects

Ceramics and metals have been used for a while as structural materials to repair bones and joints. In the past, scientists engineered bioinert materials, which do not bond to bones directly; bioactive materials that can bond to bones; and bio-absorbable materials that are categorized in bioactive materials but they are absorbed by the body over time and are replaced by advancing bone tissue.
Now, a fourth type of bone repairing materials has been found: a bio-responsive ceramic that interacts with an enzyme found in blood to be absorbed into the body at a precise and predictable rate.

The research was done by Taishi Yokoi, an associate professor at the Institute of Biomaterials and Bioengineering at Tokyo Medical and Dental University, and his colleagues. The study was published in May in Science and Technology of Advanced Materials.

“Extending healthy life expectancy is an important issue for all of us,” Yokoi says. “Bone repairing materials aid in the recovery of bone defects and help improve quality of life.”

At the heart of this discovery is a biological reaction: an enzyme called alkaline phosphatase (ALP), which is present in human serum and reacts with various phosphate esters to generate bone mineral known as hydroxyapatite.

The scientists mimicked this process using a simulated body fluid that contained the enzyme ALP. They placed four different salts in a simulated body fluid containing or lacking the enzyme ALP. The salts were calcium salts of methyl phosphate (CaMeP), ethyl phosphate (CaEtP), butyl phosphate (CaBuP) and dodecyl phosphate (CaDoP). The phosphate component of each of these salts has an alkyl group at its end – a chain composed of hydrogen and carbon atoms – of differing lengths.

The scientists found that the first three salts were converted to hydroxyapatite, but only in the presence of ALP. Interestingly, the length of the alkyl group on the phosphate ester determined the rate at which this reaction happens. With more research, the scientists think that this could allow greater control of the bone healing process in the body.

“We expect the findings of this study will be applied towards designing and developing novel bone-repairing materials with precisely controlled degradation and resorption rates inside the body,” says Yokoi.
