Royal Wedding Insider Victoria Arbiter Sits Down with Judyth Piazza

Posted on 29 April 2011 by SebNewsWire

Judyth Piazza chats with Royal Wedding Insider, Victoria Arbiter (Click here to listen)

Victoria Arbiter brings to her work a wealth of experience born from a life spent traveling the world and working professionally in a broad range of performance and media-related fields.

Born in Zimbabwe and raised in Windsor, England, Victoria is the daughter of Dickie Arbiter, a career journalist, and the former press secretary to Queen Elizabeth II. From a very young age, Victoria accompanied her father as he covered some of England`s most notable state occasions, including Trooping the Color, The Cenotaph, and the New Year`s Eve celebrations in Trafalgar Square. At the age of five, she made her live radio debut, joining her father as he presented the Christmas Day Morning Show for LBC News Radio.

As a child, Victoria set her sights on becoming a ballet dancer, and at the age of twelve she was accepted into the prestigious Elmhurst Ballet School in Camberley, England, where she trained in all aspects of dance. While at Elmhurst, she made her professional theatre debut in The Adventures of Mr. Toad in London`s West End, and this was closely followed by Cinderella at The Theatre Royal Windsor.

Upon leaving Elmhurst, Victoria made the bold decision to move to New York, where she auditioned and was accepted on scholarship to The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Following graduation, she was invited to join the Academy Company, where she went on to play some of her favorite roles including Raymonde in A Flea in her Ear and Joanna Trout in Dear Brutus.

Shortly after leaving The Academy, Victoria made an appearance on the CBS daytime drama, Guiding Light, where she met her future husband, Ryan Brown. For three years Ryan played the role of Bill Lewis on Guiding Light before joining the cast of The Young and the Restless in the role of Billy Abbott.  Now a fiction novelist, Ryan`s comic thriller Play Dead was published in hardcover in 2010 by Gallery Books, a division of Simon and Schuster.  He is the son of New York Times Best-selling author, Sandra Brown.

Her career took yet another turn when she joined the web-based television network Yo New York as Senior Producer and Entertainment Correspondent. In her new role with the network, she covered major events such as The Directors` Guild of America Awards, The TV Land Awards, countless movie premiers, and other celebrity-driven affairs. Those she has interviewed include luminaries such as Ron Howard, Shirley McClaine, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Simpson, Uma Thurman and Michael J. Fox. While with Yo, she also produced and hosted profiles for numerous charities including The Ronald McDonald House and Habitat for Humanity. She was the only web reporter to secure an exclusive interview with Sarah Duchess of York, and, based on that interview, she was invited to be a weekly contributor to Lori Krammer`s show for the online talk radio network eYada.

Victoria hosted two seasons of A Taste from the Melting Pot, an international food and culture show for PBS. Featuring first-generation nationals from around the world, the show offered an intimate look into the customs and flavors of countries including Cameroon, Ecuador, and Israel, among others.

Most recently, Victoria hosted the brand new Signature Series for Voyages North America. The program, aimed at the high-end, luxury adventure-traveler has already seen Victoria zip-line over the El Yunque Rain Forest, and swim in the largest known bio-luminescent bay.

Victoria is currently working as Creator, Executive Producer, and Host on the pilot episode of Overdressed and Undercooked, a lighthearted, entertaining foray into the world of a novice cook on a mission to improve her culinary skills and conquer her fear of the kitchen. Victoria leads the audience on a humorous, often precarious quest to prepare the perfect meal before her mystery celebrity guest arrives for dinner. With the help of some of New York`s finest chefs, she learns to prepare an array of dishes from Italian and Chinese, to barbecue and raw vegan, while trying to remain glamorous and unflustered.

Victoria is a keen traveler, and work opportunities have allowed her to experience places as diverse as Cairo, Dubai, Kuwait, and Paris. She also lived and worked in Los Angeles for three years. Some of her favorite destinations include Venice, Costa Rica, French Polynesia, Greece, and Southern Africa.

Victoria has a broad range of interests. She ranks go-carting with Diana Princess of Wales as one of her most memorable experiences; but she has also dodged hippos while kayaking the Zambezi River, lunched at the top of the Austrian Alps, suppered while cruising the Nile, hiked the Rain Forests of Central America and the Mountains of Alaska, bathed in the hot springs of Costa Rica, and ridden camels in the Egyptian desert. She`s been to the top of the Eiffel Tower, into the depths of the pyramids of Giza, and once crossed the second largest lagoon in the world to spend the night on a remote island in the South Pacific with no electricity.

When not gallivanting the world, Victoria likes nothing better than to curl up on the sofa with a good book or to watch reruns of Ally McBeal. She still loves to attend the ballet and Broadway, and has been known to drag her husband to the odd cheesy concert (Streisand, Celine, and her absolute favorite, Il Divo). Although she still gets back to England two or three times a year, Victoria now lives in New York with her husband, young son, and rescued cats, Minnie and Batsi.

Matt “Too Smooth” Godfrey Appears on The American Perspective with Judyth Piazza

Posted on 06 February 2011 by judythpiazza

Dad Pro Boxer Matt ‘Too Smooth’ Godfrey on The AP with Judyth Piazza (Click here to listen)

Since his pro debut May 14, 2004 versus Glen Morgan, Matt “Too Smooth” Godfrey has displayed poise and ring generalship far beyond his age, never more evident than in two early career matches against proven veterans Willie Herring and Jermall “The Truth” Barnes.

Years ago, Matt started boxing at Manfredo’s Gym in Pawtucket (RI) with Peter Manfredo, Jr., former world title challenger and finalist in the original reality television series, The Contender, as well as his current CES stable-mate, 2004 U.S. Olympian Jason Estrada.

A proud, full-blooded Native American (Wampanoug), Godfrey possesses incredibly quick hands and feet, especially for a 200-pounder, in addition to a complete set of sound boxing skills developed during his outstanding amateur career.

Matt had a 194-23 amateur record, capturing six national championships, four open tournaments including the 2004 Everlast U.S. Championships, plus two in the Junior Olympics.
He was a Bronze medal winner at the 2001 Pan-American Games, Silver Medalist in all four of
that year’s national major tournaments – National Golden Gloves, PAL (Police Athletic League), U.S. Championships and U.S. Challenge – and six-time New England Golden Gloves champion.

Godfrey was the second heavyweight alternate on the 2004 U.S. Olympic Boxing Team but he decided to turn pro May 14 (2004), winning a unanimous four-round decision against 1-1 Glen Morgan.

A highly decorated U.S. amateur, Godfrey defeated many of today’s leading contemporary pro boxers such as former WBA middleweight title challenger Randy “The Gentleman Griffin (24-2-3, 12 KOs), heavyweight prospect Chazz “Mensa With Muscles” Witherspoon (26-2, 18 KOs), Devin Vargas (18-1, 13 KOs), Corey “Black Ice” Cummings (17-4, 13 KOs), Leonard “Haitian Sensation” Pierre (18-3, 13 KOs) and John Johnson (12-2, 10 KOs).

In his 2004 pro debut, Godfrey won a 4-round unanimous decision against Glen Morgan in Providence, and in his eighth and ninth pro fights, respectively, Matt won 8 and 10-round decisions against the aforementioned Barnes and Herring, for th vacant WBC USNBC title, in 2005.

Godfrey’s stunning first-round TKO of previously unbeaten NABA title-holder Shaun George (11-0-2) on ESPN2 (May 10, 2006) really put Godfrey on the boxing scene. He followed that with a convincing 12-round unanimous decision (116-112, 116-113, 118-111) against Danny Batchelder (24-2-1) on September 23 Hartford (CT) for the NABA, USNBC and WBC Continental Americas championships.

Godfrey’s most notable and career-defining fight through 2007, though, was a shocking second-round knockout of highly-touted Felix Cora, Jr. (18-1-2) for the , in which Matt completely overwhelmed his talented opponent, before an ESPN2 audience (April 6, 2007) at Foxwoods. Four months later, Godfrey defeated Derrick Brown (13-2-3) by unanimous 10-round decision at Twin River in Rhode Island. Following the fight, Matt relinquished his NABA, WBC Continental Americas & USNBC title belts to give others an opportunity as he concentrated on a major world title fight.

The stage was set for Matt to fight 13-0 Rudolf Kraj in a WBC title elimination bout. Godfrey started out slow and ran out of rounds, losing a 12-round unanimous decision (115-113, 116-113, 117-111) March 8, 2008 to Kraj in Berlin. “I was terribly disappointed with my first loss,” he noted, “but I realized that all champions (not named Floyd Mayweather, Jr.) lose at some point. It isn’t the end of the world, as long as you learn from a loss, and I’ve learned a lot. I know what I’m capable of and I just have to put it all together. I still believe I’m the best cruiserweight in the world. I want to fight the top guys, on television, and get back to where I belong.”

NABF champion Matt “Too Smooth” Godfrey was anxious to show the boxing world what he has learned from his first pro loss to Kraj. “I went overseas to fight Kraj in his backyard,” Godfrey said. “I got through a difficult fight and learned a lot that I hadn’t experienced in my first 16 pro fights. I proved that I can dig down and go 12 hard rounds. I also learned that I have to become a lot meaner and more aggressive. I can’t just rely on my boxing ability, being ‘Too Smooth,’ and just looking good in the ring. I need to bite down, push forward and take the fight away from my opponent – like Vinny Paz did – instead of just boxing around in the ring.”

In his following fight, Godfrey showed, stopping highly-rated Emmanuel Nwodo (22-4) in his last fight (Aug. 29, 2008) on ESPN2. Godfrey-Nwodo was named August 2008 Fight of the Month by The Ring magazine.

“Too Smooth” showed to all that, gaining invaluable experience from fighting Kraj, he was even more of a force to be reckoned with in the cruiserweight division, by destroying former USBA champion Emmanuel Nwodo (22-4) in their June 29, 2006 NABF title fight on ESPN from Mohegan Sun. Nwodo floored an off-balanced Matt in the third round but Matt weathered the storm and came back strong, unleashing a barrage of unanswered punches in the fourth round to win by technical knockout.

“I wasn’t hurt from the knockdown in the third – we were exchanging right hands and my glove was just left out there,” Godfrey commented after the fight. “We traded punches and he was more hurt than I was but I was the one that happened to lose my balance. Unfortunately for me my glove touched the canvas and I got the knockdown scored against me, but it just goes to show you that I have the heart of a champion being able to come up off of the floor to win by a knockout the very next round, just a typical New England fighter. When we started the third round, I knew it was when my conditioning would kick in. Right from the start I kept pressuring him and pressuring him. Even though I got hit with a few good shots, I knew he would start to slow down and that I would get him.

“After I hurt him, I looked up at the clock and saw that there was a minute and thirty seconds left in the round and knew that I had him. Everybody isn’t sharp for the first three rounds but it is after the fourth and fifth round where you can really see what of a fighter that person really is. I showed you what kind of fighter I am tonight, coming up off from the canvas after the third round and being under pressure, and then to come out in the fourth round and knock the other guy out who has all of the knockouts. I noticed about halfway through the third round when I would put pressure on him, I was able to close the gap because he is a lot taller than me. When he kept me on the outside it made things a little difficult. In some ways in the third when I put pressure on him, I closed that gap and slowed him down. In the fourth round I came out and put on that pressure in close and closed that gap and I got to him. I think I broke his nose in the fourth round with a stiff jab alone. Early on he kept using his distance against me and the only thing that I could do to keep him away from me was to use a really hard stiff jab. Once I started putting the pressure on and landing with the jab is when I busted his nose up. Once I broke it open, every jab I connected with continued to make it worse.

In late 2008, Godfrey became the first Sovereign Nations Boxing Council (SNBC) champion, when he won a dominating 10-round decision against Eddie “The Iron Man” Gutierrez at 4 Bears Casino in New Town, North Dakota. “It was an honor for me to fight for the first Sovereign Nations Boxing Council title, let alone win the first SNBC belt because I am Native American,” Godfrey said upon returning to his Providence home. “Finally, Native American boxers have a chance to be recognized and being the first SNBC champion is a huge honor for me.”

Godfrey defended his NABF and SNBC crowns against a fellow Native American, previously unbeaten Shawn Hawk (18-0-1), on ESPN from Philadelphia. Matt breezed to his 19th win by 10-round decision (99-91, 97-93, 96-92) and relinquished his SNBC belt after the match out of respect for Hawk, who grew-up on a poor reservation and overcame many obstacles.

In what was supposed to be a “stay busy” bout for Godfrey in September of 2009, in Sacramento, against Michael Simms (20-11-2), Godfrey showed the heart of a champion, picking himself up off the mat in the opening round to win a 10-round split decision (96-93, 95-94, 94-95) against the dangerous Simms, a World amateur champion who defeated present WBA heavyweight champion David Haye in 1999.

In his last action August 21, 2010, Godfrey unsuccessfully challenged WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck in Germany, getting stopped (TKO5) for the first time in his pro career.

Godfrey is managed by Bret Hallenbeck and trained by “Iceman” John Scully.

Judyth Piazza and Chris A. Otto Help to Provide a Halo of Protection for Seniors

Posted on 24 January 2011 by judythpiazza

Judyth Piazza chats with Chris A. Otto, Chairman and CEO of Halo Monitoring (Click here to listen to audio interview)

What if there’s a fall and nobody’s there to help? It’s a question millions of American families with aging loved ones ask every day. Seniors prefer to live at home where it’s safe, comfortable and affordable – but someone with the ability to help needs to be close by, just in case. That’s why Halo Monitoring, maker of myHalo, the most advanced medical alarm with automatic fall detection, is urging families to observe Fall Prevention Awareness Day on the first day of Fall, September 23.The statistics are alarming. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports:

One out of three senior adults fall each year.
In 2007, 18,000 older Americans died from fall related injuries.
In 2008, 2.1 million older Americans were injured in falls. 

“Staying active, regular review of all medications, and making your home safer are all proven ways to reduce the risk of falling,” says Chris Otto, CEO of Halo Monitoring. “However, it’s important that families understand that despite all precautions, accidents still happen. Even minor falls can turn deadly if a fallen loved one is left alone for extended periods. It is critical that help arrive within the first four hours of a fall. myHalo is the first system of its kind and offers the most advanced fall detection available. When a fall does occur, help will be called automatically, without the need to press a button.”Through the use of a small comfortable, wireless device worn by a senior loved one, myHalo assures security for seniors and peace of mind for their caregivers. The advanced myHalo system is the first wearable medical alarm that sends an automatic alert- no need to push a button- in the event of a fall. In addition, while most medical alarms only react to an emergency, myHalo is the first system of its kind to monitor the user’s health and physical activity 24/7. Through the use of a private, secure website, the system provides the ability for designated persons and family to “look-in” on an elderly loved one for peace of mind without invading their personal privacy.
With a new study showing an elderly person’s fear of falling likely increases the risk of an actual fall occurring, the peace of mind provided by myHalo is invaluable. Robin Sanders bought myHalo for his 77 year old mother-in-law, Elizabeth Madison, who lives in Roseville, MN.

 ”After Elizabeth fell in the basement and almost hit her head we agreed we needed myHalo,” said Sanders. “About one month later she again fell in the basement and her husband was upstairs and unaware. myHalo detected the fall, the monitoring center called the house, and notified me as well. We all feel better knowing myHalo is there.”

 ”I felt so alone when I fell, it was a real wakeup knowing what can happen,” adds Madison. “I don’t have that fear of falling anymore. Now I feel secure, and I know if I fall that someone will come to help me without my having to push a button or call for help.”

 ”Falling is a reality and denying the problem won’t make it go away. Families do all they can to protect their elderly loved ones, and myHalo is there to provide additional security and peace of mind,” adds Otto.

 About Halo Monitoring:
Halo Monitoring’s products assure security for seniors and peace of mind for their caregivers. The advanced myHalo system is the first medical alarm that sends an automatic alert- no need to push a button- in the event of a fall. While most medical alarms are only able to react to an emergency, myHalo is the first system of its kind to provide 24/7 activity and health monitoring. Seniors get proactive care when they need it, while remaining independent.
