Introducing Kadir ARSLAN – A Talented Artist from Istanbul, Turkey




Crimson by Kadir ARSLAN

Fine Art Shippers is pleased to introduce Kadir ARSLAN, a talented Istanbul-based artist whose incredible paintings deserve wider recognition.

NEW YORK, NY, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, March 30, 2019 / — Fine Art Shippers is pleased to introduce Kadir ARSLAN, an Istanbul-based artist whose incredible paintings were exhibited at the recent edition of ARTAnkara International Contemporary Art Fair held in Ankara, Turkey on March 14-17. Kadir ARSLAN is a very talented artist, and we would like to recommend his work to anyone who is looking for high-quality contemporary art with a twist!

As an international fine art shipping company with agents and offices throughout the world, Fine Art Shippers has the honor of working with many prominent artists whose works are held in the permanent collections of the leading museums in the United States and abroad. We ship fine art for them, support in organizing gallery exhibitions, do art installation works, and provide them with a wide range of other services. Besides, we love to help young and upcoming artists whose incredible talent is unquestionable. We assist them with art logistics and do our best to spread their art and innovative ideas around the globe. One of these artists is Kadir ARSLAN, and we are delighted to share his work with the world.

Kadir ARSLAN is a Kurdish artist who lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey. Born in 1986, he has been fascinated with art all of his life, a passion that began with drawing on notebooks and schoolbooks in his early years. When ARSLAN was in primary school, his art teacher recognized the boy’s talent and encouraged him to join the talent exam, which marked the beginning of his artistic journey.

After graduation from Nevit Kodalli Fine Arts High School in Mersin in 2005, Kadir ARSLAN continued his education at Çukurova University in Adana, where he studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts for four years. ARSLAN’s career started right after his graduation from the university when the young artist opened his own studio in Istanbul. However, due to a car accident in 2010, which led to serious health problems, Kadir ARSLAN had to leave art for five years. He returned to painting only in 2015. The same year, ARSLAN opened his studio in Istanbul again and began working as a professional artist full time.

Kadir ARSLAN specializes in acrylic, ink, oil, and mixed-media paintings, with a focus on portraits. The artist believes that art has its own soul and character, and this is exactly what inspires him to create his absolutely stunning artworks. Besides, ARSLAN’s paintings have many symbolic references to Middle Eastern culture and history, which makes them special and undoubtedly very interesting.

At Fine Art Shippers, we wish Kadir ARSLAN a lot of success and all the best in his endeavors! He is an amazing artist, and his work deserves wider recognition and greater awareness outside of Turkey. Very recommended!

Colonial Flag Foundation launches its FIRST Virtual Healing Field® flag display to
raise funds and awareness to prevent child abuse

SANDY, UT, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2019 / — April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Colonial Flag Foundation has joined forces with Operation Underground Railroad & National Exchange Club to end child abuse. Each year approximately 3 million children are reported as abused in the U.S. – sadly, that number is growing.

The Colonial Flag Foundation has raised over $42 million dollars to help charities through its Healing Field® and Field of Honor® flag display events. Now, for the first time, it is hosting a Virtual Healing Field® flag display to raise funds to end child abuse and give the victims of abuse more resources.

Virtual Healing Field® Flag Display Program
Beginning on April 1st through April 30th, 2019 Colonial Flag Foundation and its partners Operation Underground Railroad and the National Exchange Club will launch in a national effort the first Virtual Healing Field® Flag Display where individuals across the country can stand together in a united effort against child abuse.

For a $5 donation, individuals, churches, businesses and organizations can sponsor a flag. Sponsored flags will be flown on our Virtual Map to raise funds while at the same time inspiring others and show support in ending child abuse.

Flags may be posted ‘in memory’ of someone and may include a short bio or a short message.

Watch our virtual flag postings increase as communities and organizations across America unite to end child abuse:

Please take advantage of this unique opportunity and spread the word with your audience.

About Colonial Flag Foundation
The Colonial Flag Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit which develops and implements meaningful programs to help bring awareness, educate and raise funds for organizations around the country.

About Operation Underground Railroad
Operation Underground Railroad is a 501(C)(3) non-profit founded by Tim Ballard which assists governments around the world in the rescue of human trafficking and sex trafficking victims, with a special focus on children. O.U.R. also aids with planning, prevention, capture, and prosecution of offenders, and works with partner organizations for prevention, victim recovery, strengthened awareness, and fundraising efforts.
In the United States, child sex trafficking can intersect with domestic child abuse. When a victim is
trafficked by a family member, very often domestic violence is also taking place. Violence in the home can
also cause victims to become more vulnerable to being trafficked outside of the home, as both abusers and
traffickers use similar tactics, including power and control, to dominate their victims.

Understanding the intersection between domestic child abuse and sex trafficking is extremely important for
raising awareness of the realities of what survivors and victims’ face. (Unicef,

About National Exchange Club
National Exchange Club is celebrating their 40th anniversary of adopting Child Abuse Prevention as a National Project. Colonial Flag Foundation has partnered with many local Exchange Clubs to post Blue Ribbon Flags to raise awareness of the magnitude of this tragedy while raising funds to develop and support programs to break the cycle of abuse.

In his new article, Kamal Pourmoghadam, MD explains in layman’s terms how cholesterol is bad for your health and how one can lower the cholesterol level.

Dr. Kamal K. Pourmoghadam (N/A:N/A)

Lack of physical activity is a common cause behind high cholesterol which is why it is necessary to engage in exercises on a daily basis.”

— Dr. Kamal Pourmoghadam, Orlando, Florida

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2019 / — Cholesterol, a type of waxy substance found in every human body, is a natural byproduct of the liver. This fat can be found in every cell of a human body and helps the skin, brain, and other organs to function properly. Cholesterol can also be artificially consumed from food items such as eggs, butter, cheese, meat, and milk. While the human body does need cholesterol in order to digest fat and produce hormones like estrogen and testosterone, and vitamin D, excessive cholesterol poses severe health risks.

Medical doctor and surgeon Kamal Pourmoghadam, MD has published an informational article on this subject. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Pourmoghadam at Read this article to infer the harmful effects of high cholesterol and how to lower your cholesterol level.

Effects of Having High Cholesterol Levels

High cholesterol levels in the body develop fatty deposits in your blood vessels. These deposits gradually grow which stiffens the blood vessels. As a result, it becomes hard for the blood to flow in your arteries. In some cases, high cholesterol is inherited as someone in your family may also have high cholesterol. However, most of the times, it is a result of an unhealthy lifestyle – poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking, and obesity. High Cholesterol eventually leads to the following life-threatening results:

1. Chest Pain
High cholesterol causes the accumulation of fat in unacceptable quantities and allows other deposits to build-up on the walls of your arteries. All of this reduces the smooth flow of blood in the body and causes severe chest pain.

2. Heart Attack
A blood clotting occurs when the cholesterol level is high. This, again, blocks your blood to flow and cause your arteries to break. This further prevents the blood flow to reach your heart and may cause a heart attack.

3. Heart Stroke
Heart strokes occur when a blood clot forms near the plaque or rupture. This prevents your blood to flow to your brain, ultimately leading to heart stroke.

How to Lower Your Cholesterol Level

Unfortunately, high cholesterol has no significant or apparent symptoms. The only way to identify if you have it is through a blood test. It is always smart to ask your doctor whether you should have a cholesterol test or not.

Usually, children and young adults, posing no risks for heart illnesses, are examined between the ages of 9 to 11 and then between the ages of 17 to 19. In case, your blood test results show spikes of high cholesterol level; your doctor will recommend certain medications to reduce your high cholesterol and some lifestyle changes to improve your cholesterol intensity.

1. Consume Foods Packed with Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids, typically found in fish and flaxseed, is incredibly important to your body and have plenty of health benefits. However, the most significant benefit is that it improves heart health and thus reduces blood pressure. Eat food items rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as herring, salmon, fish, walnuts, flaxseeds, and mackerel.

2. Eliminate Saturated Fat from Your Diet
Saturated fat is primarily found in red meat and whole-fat dairy products. The regular or frequent consumption of saturated fats can increase your cholesterol level. Hence, it becomes crucial to lowering the intake of saturated fats. This positive change in your diet will help reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol which is notorious for being the “bad” cholesterol.

3. Regular Exercise
Lack of physical activity is a common cause behind high cholesterol which is why it is necessary to engage in exercises on a daily basis. Doing simple forms of exercises like walking, jogging, running, or cycling regularly can help make your heart stronger and keep heart diseases at bay. If possible, you can engage in aerobic exercises as they are terrific at lowering high cholesterol levels. Furthermore, exercising daily is a powerful mean to boosts your HDL (good) cholesterol and lowers your LDL (bad) cholesterol. Make sure that you exercise 30 minutes or more every day in the morning or evening.

4. Avoid Eating Trans Fats
Trans fats are often listed down as “partially hydrogenated vegetable oil” on food items like margarine, cakes, cookies, chips, and biscuits. According to the Food and Drug Administration, trans fats increase the risk of cholesterol level which is why you should avoid eating foods that contain trans fats.

Incorporate these healthy measures into your daily life if you have high cholesterol and you will definitely experience positive effects in no time.

Intermountain Healthcare Employees Donate More Than 6,000 Pounds of Food to Help Hungry Children in Davis County

Nutrition is an integral part of helping people live the healthiest lives possible.”

— Joy Musselman, Intermountain’s director of clinical nutrition

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, March 29, 2019 / — Caregivers from Intermountain Healthcare have donated more than 6,000 pounds of food this month to support children who experience chronic hunger in Utah's Davis County.

The donations were made to the Bountiful Food Pantry’s Pantry Pack program, which helps feed at-risk students in Davis School District. The project supports Intermountain’s work to improve the social determinants of health, which are non-medical factors that affect health and well-being.

Pantry Packs — which include two breakfasts, two lunches, and several snacks — are provided each Friday to students to give them enough to eat on the weekends. Intermountain’s donation equals nearly 5,000 Pantry Packs, or more than 8,000 meals. About 24 percent of students in the district receive subsidized meals during the week, but face an increased risk of hunger over the weekend, according to the pantry.

“Nutrition is an integral part of helping people live the healthiest lives possible,” said Joy Musselman, Intermountain’s director of clinical nutrition. “We can’t be as healthy as we possibly can if we’re not putting nutritious foods into our bodies.”

Chronic hunger impacts more than 40,000 Davis County residents, including nearly 18,000 children. It’s linked to health issues and chronic diseases including obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. Chronic hunger doesn’t happen all the time; it may reflect a household’s need to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as utility or medical bills and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods.

“Intermountain is an organization of caregivers. We care for people,” Musselman said. “And food is one of the ways we show we care. The food packs we’ve provided help children in our communities feel cared for, even by getting something as simple as granola bars, applesauce cups, and instant oatmeal.”

Nearly all of the 60,000 Pantry Packs the Bountiful Food Pantry distributes are assembled by volunteers. The pantry employs only two staff members, which creates a significant need for volunteer groups. Individuals, families, civic and church groups, and others are invited to visit the Pantry’s volunteer website to sign up to assist in their work.

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 23 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with some 2,300 employed physicians and advanced care practitioners, a health insurance company called SelectHealth, and other health services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through evidence-based best practices, high quality, and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit

தமிழ் மக்கள் சுதந்திரமாக வாழ தாயகத்தில் தமிழீழ தனி அரசொன்று அமைய வேண்டும் – பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன்

அரசியல் தீர்வு – தமிழின அழிப்பு – தாயக மேம்பாடு : யாழ் ஊடகர்களுடன் பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் !!

JAFFNA , SRI LANKA, March 29, 2019 / —

இணையவழி காணொளி ஊடாக யாழ் ஊடக மையத்தில் ஊடகர்களோடு கலந்துரையாடல் ஒன்றினை மேற்கொண்டிருந்த பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் அவர்கள் அரசியல் தீர்வு – தமிழின அழிப்பு – தாயக மேம்பாடு ஆகிய விடயங்கள் குறித்து தெரிவித்துள்ளார்.

அரசியல் தீர்வு குறித்து…

தமிழ் மக்கள் சுதந்திரமாகவும், சமத்துவமாகவும், பாதுகாப்பாகவும் இனஅழிப்புக்கு உட்படாமலும் தமது மரபுவழித் தாயகத்தில் வாழவேண்டுமானால் சுதந்திரமும் இறைமையும் கொண்ட தமிழீழத் தனியரசொன்று தமிழர் தாயகத்தில் அமைய வேண்டும் என்பதே அரசியல் தீர்வு தொடர்பான எமது அரசியல் நிலைப்பாடு. இதனை இன்னொரு வகையில் சொல்வதானால், இலங்கைத்தீவில் இரு அரசுகள் அமைவதே தேசிய இனப்பிரச்சினைக்கு நிரந்தரமானதொரு தீர்வாக அமையும் என்றே நாம் கருதுகிறோம்.

இத் தீர்வு 1977 ஆம் ஆண்டு நடைபெற்ற பொதுத்தேர்தல் மூலம் தமிழ் மக்களின் அரசியல் ஆணையைப் பெற்றதொரு நிலைப்பாடு. 50,000 க்கும் அதிகமான மாவீரர்கள் தமது உயிர்த்தியாகம் மூலம் வலுப்படுத்தியதொரு நிலைப்பாடு. தமிழீழ மக்களின் அரசியற்பெருவிருப்பாக இந் நிலைப்பாடு அவர்களின் ஆழ்மனதில் உறுதியாக இருக்கிறது என நாம் கருதுகிறோம்.

2009 ஆம் ஆண்டு மே மாதத்தின் பின் இந் நிலைப்பாடு குறித்துப் பேசுவதற்கும், செயற்படுவதற்கும் தாயகத்தில் அரசியல்வெளி இல்லாதிருக்கிறது என்பதனை நாம் அறிவோம். இருந்தபோதும் தமிழீழத் தனியரசு உட்பட்ட தீர்வுமுறை குறித்து தாயகத்திலும், புலம் பெயர்ந்தும் வாழும் தமிழ் மக்கள் மத்தியில் மக்கள் வாக்கெடுப்பொன்று நடாத்தப்பட்டு, மக்கள் அளிக்கும் தீர்ப்பின் அடிப்படையில் இலங்கைத்தீவின் தேசியப்பிரச்சினைக்கு அரசியல்தீர்வு காணப்படுவதே உரிய ஜனநாயக வழிமுறையிலான அணுகுமுiறாக இருக்கும் என்பதே எமது நிலைப்பாடு. தனியரசு உருவாக வேண்டும் என விரும்புவோர் அதற்காகக் குரல் கொடுக்கட்டும். அதனை எதிர்ப்போர் எதிர்க்கட்டும். தமிழ் மக்கள் தமது தீர்ப்பை வழங்கட்டும்.

இந் நிலைப்பாட்டை ஏற்று, 6வது திருத்தச் சட்டத்தை அகற்றி, ஒரு மக்கள் வாக்கெடுப்பை நடத்தி அரசியற்தீர்வைக் காண முயலும் அளவுக்கு சிங்கள தேசத்தின் தலைவர்கள் அரசியல் முதிர்ச்சியும், ஜனநாயகப்பண்பும் கொண்டவர்கள் அல்ல என்பதனையும் நாம் அறிவோம். ஆனால், தமிழ் மக்களின் அரசியல் நிலைப்பாட்டை வெளிப்படுத்தி, அதற்காகப் போராடுவது தமிழ் மக்களின் உரிமை. அதனை நாங்கள் செய்கிறோம். தாயகத்தில் இதற்கான அரசியல்வெளி இல்லாத காரணத்தால் இது குறித்து செயற்பட வேண்எய கூடுதல் கடப்பாடு எமக்கு இருப்பதாகவும் நாம் உணர்கிறோம். இந்த நிலைப்பாட்டை வலுப்படுத்துவதற்குரிய பூகோள, புவிசார் அரசியல் நிலைமைகள் திரட்சியடைவதற்கான வாய்ப்புகள் உள்ளன என்பதும் இது யதார்த்தத்துக்கு அப்பாற்பட்டதல்ல என்ற புரிதலும் நமக்கு உண்டு.

தமிழின அழிப்புக் குறித்து ….

இலங்கைத்தீவில் தமிழர் தேசம் சிறிலங்கா அரசின் இனஅழிப்புக்கு உள்ளாகிறது என்பது எமது நிலைப்பாடு. தமிழின அழிப்பு என்பது சிறிலங்கா அரசின் கொள்கையாக இருப்பதால், எந்தச் சிங்களக் கட்சி ஆட்சிக்கு வந்தாலும் தமிழின அழிப்பு முயற்சி தொடர்ந்து கொண்டிருப்பதனை நாம் காண்கிறோம். ஆட்சியாளரின் தன்மைக்கேற்ப இனஅழிப்பு வடிவங்கள் மாறுபடுகின்றனவேயன்றி தமிழின அழிப்புத் திட்டமும் முயற்சியும் தொடர்ந்து கொண்டேயிருக்கிறது. இனஅழிப்பு என்பது பெரும் அரசியல் பரிமாணம் கொண்ட எண்ணக்கருவாக இருப்பதாலும், இனஅழிப்பு நடைபெறுகிறது என்பதனை ஏற்றுக் கொள்வதால் ஏற்படக்கூடிய அரசியல் விளைவுகள் காரணமாகவும் அனைத்துலக அரசுகளும் இனஅழிப்பை ஏற்றுக் கொள்வதில் தயக்கம் காட்டுகின்றன.

முள்ளிவாய்க்கால் இனப்படுகொலை தமிழின அழிப்புத் திட்டத்தின் தீர்மானகரமான ஓர் அங்கமாகும். இதனை யுத்தக்குற்ற விசாரணையாகச் சுருக்குவதில் எமக்கு உடன்பாடில்லை. தமிழின அழிப்புக்கு நீதி வழங்கும் அதிகாரம் கொண்ட மையமாகவும் நாம் மனித உரிமைகள் பேரவையினைப் பார்க்க முடியாது. இதனால் தமிழின அழிப்புக்கான நீதியினை நாம் ஜெனிவாவில் எதிர்பார்க்க முடியாது. ஜெனிவா மனித உரிமைப்பேரவை எமது நீதி நோக்கிய பயணத்தின் ஓர் ஆரம்பப்புள்ளி மட்டுமே. அதன் வரையறைக்குள் நின்று மட்டும் நாம் நீதியினைத் தேட முடியாது.

இதனால்தான் ஜெனிவா மனித உரிமைப்பேரைவையிடம், சிறிலங்கா தொடர்பான விடயத்தை ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் பாதுகாப்புச்சபையிடம் கையளிக்குமாறும், தமிழின அழிப்புத் தொடர்பாக அனைத்துலக குற்றவியல் நீதிமன்றத்திடமோ, அல்லது அதற்கிணையானதோர் அனைத்துலகப் பொறிமுறையிடமோ கையளிக்குமாறு நாம் ஆரம்பம் முதல் கோரி வந்திருக்கிறோம். எமது இந்த நிபை;பாட்;டுக்கு தற்போது ஆதரவு அதிகரித்து வருகிறது. எனினும் தமிழ் மக்களின் நீதி கோரும் போராட்டம் ஒரு நீண்டதூரப்பயணமாகவே அமையும். அனைத்துலக அரசுகள் தத்தமது நலன்களைத்தாண்டி நீதியின் குரலுக்கு செவிசாய்க்க வேண்டிய நிலை உருவாக்கப்பட வேண்டும்.

தமிழர் தாயக மேம்பாடு குறித்து…

தமிழர் தாயகத்தின் மேம்பாடு ஈழத் தமிழர் தேசத்தின் வளர்ச்சியின் இணைபிரியாதவோர் அங்கம் என்பதனை நாம் அறிவோம். தமிழ் மக்களது பொருளாதார, சமூக, பண்பாட்டு மேம்பாடு குறித்து நாம் தமிழ் மக்களின் பார்வையில் மே;பாட்டுத் திட்டங்களை வடிவமைத்துச் செயற்பட வேண்டும். தமிழர் தேசத்தினை சிங்கள தேசத்தில் தங்கி நிற்க வைக்கும் வகையிலான திட்டங்களை மேம்பாட்டுத் திட்டங்கள் என்ற பெயரில் நடைமுறைப்படுத்தும் அணுகுமுறை சிங்கள அரசிடம் இருக்கிறது என்பதனை நாம் என்றும் நினைவில் வைத்திருக்க வேண்டும். மேம்பாட்டின் அரசியல் குறித்து நாம் மிகவும் எச்சரிக்கையாகவும் விழிப்புடனும் இருக்க வேண்டும். தமிழ் மக்களின் கைகளில் அரசியல் அதிகாரம் இல்லாத போது, தமிழர் தேச வளர்ச்சி என்ற நோக்குநிலையில் மேம்பாட்டு நடவடிக்கைகளில் ஈடுபடுவது சவால் மிக்கதொன்றாகவே அமையும்.

ஆனால், இதேவேளை இவ் அரசியல் அதிகாரம் கிடைக்கும் வரை தமிழர் தேசம் தன்னை மேம்படுத்தும் முயற்சிகளில் ஈடுபடாமல் இருக்கவும் முடியாது. இதனால் மக்களது கைகளிலேயே தங்கி நிற்கும் மேம்பாட்டு முயற்சிகளில் தாயக மக்களும், புலம் பெயர் தமிழ் மக்களும், தமிழக மற்றும் உலகத் தமிழ் மக்கள் அனைவரும் இணைந்து மேற்கோள்வதற்கான வழிவகைகள் குறித்து நாம் சிந்திக்க வேண்டும். உலகமயமாக்கல் அரசுகளின் கட்டுப்பாடுகளைத் தாண்டித் தரக்கூடிய வெளிகளை நாம் எவ்வாறு பயன்படுத்தலாம் என்பதனையும் கவனத்திற் கொண்டு நாம் செயற்பட வேண்டும்.

தமிழ்த் தேசிய அரசியற்பேரியக்கம் குறித்து…

தமிழ் மக்கள் மத்தியில் ஒரு மக்கள் வாக்கெடுப்;பின் ஊடாகப் பெறப்படும் அரசியற்தீர்வு, தமிழின அழிப்புக்கு எதிராக அனைத்துலக அரங்கில் நீதி தேடல், தமிழர் தேசம் என்ற நோக்கு நிலையில் இருந்து தமிழர் தாயக மேம்பாடு போன்ற நிலைப்பாடுகள் தாயக மக்களும், புலம் பெயர்ந்து வாழும் தமிழ் மக்களும் பொதுவாக முன்வைக்கக்கூடிய அரசியற் கோரிக்கைகளே. தாயக, புலம்பெயர் அமைப்புகள் இது குறித்துப் பேசி, மக்கள் மயப்பட்ட ஒரு தேசிய அரசியல் பேரியக்கத்தை உருவாக்க வேண்டும். இது ஓர் ஐக்கிய முன்னணி என்ற அரசியல் வடிவத்தில் அமைய முடியும். இந்த அரசியல் பேரியக்கமே தமிழீழ மக்களின் பிரிதிநிதிகள் என்ற நிலை எட்டப்பட வேண்டும். தேர்தல் என்பது தமிழ் மக்களின் அரசியல் போராட்டத்தின் ஒரு பகுதியே என்ற புரிதல் ஏற்பட வேண்டும். மக்களை அணிதிரட்டி, மக்களில் தங்கி நின்று மக்கள் நலன் என்ற நோக்குநிலையில் செயற்படும் ஒரு தமிழ்த் தேசியப் பேரியக்கமொன்று உருவாக்கப்படுவது இன்றைய காலத்தின் தேவையாகவே நாம் உணர்கிறோம்.

இக் குறிப்புகளுடன் நாம் எமது உரையாடலை ஆரம்பிப்பதற்கான அழைப்பினை விடுக்கிறேன் என பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் தெரிவித்திருந்தார்.

Jeffrey Cogan ESQ guilty of malicious prosecution/abuse of process. Arizona jury awards Arnaldo Trabucco,MD $8 million.

Jeffery Cogan Esq.

Guilty of malicious prosecution and abuse of process


Tenacity of fraudulent filings


Legal system needs a tune up

Jeffrey Cogan ESQ found guilty of malicious prosecution/abuse of process. Mojave County, Arizona jury awards Arnaldo Trabucco,MD largest award in AZ history.

The lawyers’ truth is not Truth, but consistency or a consistent expediency.”

— Henry David Thoreau

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2019 / — A Superior Court jury in Kingman, AZ on 7/26/2018 awarded $6,232,000 in compensatory damages and $1,768,000 in punitive damages to the plaintiff, Dr. Arnaldo Trabucco according to court records. NO. CV-2014-04030

Arnaldo Trabucco,MD sued Jeffrey A. Cogan ESQ, his law firm and the family of the patient who passed away of natural causes, unrelated to the surgery, Gerald Scharf for filing fraudulent repetitive law suits alleging the equivalent of murder of the patient.

Jeffrey Cogan was relentless in his fraudulent filings. The first filing was in Nevada federal court, dismissed. The 2nd in AZ state court (both dismissed with no evidence with prejudice against Cogan) and finally in AZ Federal Court that went to a jury with a unanimous verdict (8-0) in favor of Trabucco, with no evidence and finding that Trabucco did anything wrong, Cogan had absolutely no evidence to support his fraudulent allegations of malpractice (10/2017). Cogan witnesses, Dr. Mellman's who indicated there was no deviation of the standard of care and his other witness Dr. Danoff's testimony stated the operation went well without any issues.

Dr. Danoff retorted to sell his book “Penis Power” to the jury and informing them that they can buy it online. “Really it’s called Penis Power you can buy it on”. The performance presented in court was comical and pathetic to say the least. Trabucco’s Malpractice lawyer was represented by Scott Holden Esq.

Dr. Trabucco then sued Cogan, seeking damages for harm to his reputation, loss of earnings, emotional distress and defense costs.

Despite Trabucco reporting Cogan to the Nevada Bar Association, they have adamantly refused to do anything to Cogan despite the severe and multiple egregious malicious untrue allegations and filings since 2013. Cogan has blatantly violated trial rule 11 which basically indicates that when a lawyer files a lawsuit he must have done unequivocally due diligence to obtain factual evidence of the charges that he is filing for, which he had absolutely no evidence to substantiate his allegations. These allegations were fabricated by this bankruptcy attorney for malicious intent. This was substantiated by Scott Holden ESQ during his testimony.

Cogan is also in violation the code of ethics rule 121 section A and B, which relates to confidentiality of the American Bar Association when a formal complaint has been filed. Again the Nevada Bar Association has done nothing.

The Mohave county jury unanimously voted in favor of Dr. Trabucco and (7/26/2018) assessed the damages against Cogan and his law firm.

Phoenix law firm Wilenchik et. al., which represented Trabucco, said it searched records and couldn’t find a higher verdict in Mohave County, or in the state of AZ. The next highest award found was for $1.25 million in a 2010 medical malpractice case. This displays how vehemently malicious Cogan’s allegations and lawsuits were fraudulently filed with no evidence.
Cogan solicited this case with the aid of a Dr. and his wife from Arizona who was apparently acting as a fictitious pseudo-paralegal to assume this case which was going to be dismissed by the previous attorney because there was no case. So that attorney sat on the case so long until the attorney died. His partner was going to drop the case because there was no case.

Cogan, who is based in Las Vegas, (a bankruptcy attorney, hired by his ex-wife, and not a malpractice attorney) had previously sued Dr. Trabucco for the same fraudulent malpractice case causing Scharf’s death, 3 times for the same case. Cogan fraudulently stated that Trabucco murdered his own patient. With the help of forensic pathology a federal jury found that Scharf died of natural causes unrelated to the surgery, and there was, no evidence supporting malpractice by Trabucco’s lawyer Scott Holden said. Holden had warned Cogan about the filing of his false claims on numerous occasions; however Cogan persisted three times and stated to Holden that “he wanted his cake and eat it at the same time” and that he wasn’t worried. Holden as a lawyer has never seen a more corrupt case like this in his entire career. The malpractice case was finally concluded in Trabucco's favor on October 2017 in Arizona federal court.

Trabucco then sued Cogan, seeking damages for harm to his reputation, loss of earnings, emotional distress and defense costs. Trabucco will also be seeking criminal charges against Cogan and his co-conspirators for using the federal court system with malicious intent for personal gains.

Dr. Trabucco the board-certified urologist had never had a malpractice judgment or settlement against the in over his 31-year career. They said even Scharf’s wife, who had hired Cogan, didn’t think the doctor was responsible, and relied on Cogan to provide the evidence which there was none.

Jeffrey Cogan admitted in Arizona Superior Court that he was hired by Rebecca Eimerman and Dr. Trabucco’s ex-wife Pamela Trabucco. Cogan also conspired with another doctor and wife who were also in contact with Dr. Trabucco’s ex-wife and Rebecca Eimerman as well as his father, mother, sister, daughter who was underage at the time. This exemplifies the Machiavellian approach and the seriousness of the issues at hand as a conspiracy with multiple individuals involved. Dr. Trabucco is now filing suit against his ex-wife Pamela Trabucco, Rebecca Eimerman and other individuals and periodicals relating to this matter as well as other matters that are propagated fraudulently on the Internet.

Cogan a bankruptcy lawyer is now declining to pay and has filed for appeal, but the evidence is overwhelming against him. Please note that Mr. Cogan has recently committed dishonest actions with a “fraudulent transfer” where he took out the property of his corporation and then put it in a corporation in his own name in exchange for nothing to the corporation with the obvious purpose of keeping it away from collections “by claiming it is exempt under personal endeavors exemptions”. This exemplifies the immoral nature of Cogan and thinking that he is above the law.

Old Slings New Injuries/New Slings New Injuries

Dr. Greg Vigna

Despite being banned in several countries, the TVM devices used for SUI continue to be implanted in the USA and are known to cause catastrophic pain syndromes.

The second round of litigation has begun now that the Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) is closed to ‘new cases’ caused by old and newly implanted devices.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CA, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2019 / — Plastic polypropylene transvaginal mesh (TVM) devices used for the surgical management of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women are of two different designs – the transobturator sling (TOT or TVT-O) and the retropubic sling (TVT). The transobturator sling passes through the obturator space into the thigh, while the retropubic sling hammocks the urethra and exits up and out behind the pubic bone.

Despite being banned in several countries, the TVM devices used for SUI continue to be implanted in the United States. These devices are known to cause disability, sexual dysfunction, and catastrophic pain syndromes. Not only do these devices provided no added increased efficacy compared to non-mesh surgical procedures for SUI, there is little research evidence to support that these devices are safe long-term as they degrade and shrink up to 30% of original size after implantation.

Transobturator slings cause pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 2. Retropubic slings cause injury to the pudendal nerve branch to the clitoris and cause Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 1. These diagnoses are known for their disabling vaginal pain what makes sexual intercourse impossible, pelvic pain that reduces mobility to a sedentary level, and bowel and bladder dysfunction that may include an inability to evacuate the bowels and bladder associated with severe anorectal pain.

New injuries are being diagnosed every day caused from newly implanted slings and new injuries are being caused by devices implanted over a decade ago as they shrink and degrade resulting in traction on muscles and nerves. Other injuries include pelvic pain, groin pain, painful bladder filling, vulvar allodynia making it impossible to wear tight pants, and erosions.

Dr. Greg Vigna, practicing physician, damages expert, and national pharmaceutical injury attorney states, “The second round of litigation has begun now that the Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) is closed to ‘new cases’ caused by old and newly implanted devices." These ‘new cases’ are being filed in state courts by attorneys he works with across the country and there will be no mass settlements at the expense of the most injured. Dr. Vigna adds, “These cases will be going on for the next twenty years, well after TVM slings are removed from the market.”

Dr. Vigna, with his coalition of leading pharmaceutical injury attorneys, represents women with neurological complications caused by TVM devices used for pelvic organ prolapse and SUI that are in the Wave proceedings in the MDL against Boston Scientific Corporation and Ethicon, Inc. and newly filed cases in State Courts.
