The life of Gordon “Uncle John” Javna, editor-in-chief and publisher of the Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader series, reads like one of his books. There’s a lot of fun, intriguing—often odd—information lurking around every corner.He went to art school, and then went on to become a musician, real-estate developer, writer, restaurateur, president of a pre-school, brew pub owner,and editor—not all at once, mind you, but he has been all of these things. Eventually, though, he realized that because of his love of fascinating facts(and being a bathroom reader himself), he was naturally suited, perhaps even destined, to bring the joy of trivia to the world in a fun, informative way.He assumed the pseudonym Uncle John for the Bathroom Reader series and since then, Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader has become the longest-running, most popular series of its kind in the publishing industry. To date, there are more than 15 million Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers in print and his fanatical flock of followers span from Australia to the United Kingdom and beyond. Guided by their obsession with unusual trivia, amazing origins, and forgotten history, Gordon “Uncle John” Javna and his staff at the Bathroom Readers' Institute have made Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers a must-have for book and gift stores worldwide for over two decades. Gordon continues to expand his porcelain province from his throne room in Ashland, Oregon.

Marilyn Schlossbach is well known at the Jersey Shore and beyond as a chef, restaurateur and philanthropist. Now she’s adding another moniker to her impressive credentials – cookbook author. And because this is Marilyn’s cookbook, it will be a showcase of her community involvement and is aptly titled Eat This Community. We’ll get all the details about the new cookbook and when it will be available. Profits from the cookbook will be used to support some of her favorite causes, among them the Kula Café in Asbury Park, which is a collaboration with Interfaith Neighbors, and Clean Ocean Action, an environmental organization that works to protect coastlines and marine environments. Marilyn is a self-taught chef and entrepreneur who went from marketing student, to waitress, to the chef du cuisine of Oshin, one of NJ’s first Asian Fusion restaurants to open in the 1980s. She has not looked back since first stepping behind the line in 1982 to cover for her brother and head chef at Oshin, spending the last 30 years developing her culinary style through travel, self-instruction, and an unwavering passion for gastronomy. In 2014, she was named one of NJ’s 2014 Best 50 Women in Business by NJBIZ, NJ’s premiere business news publication. Marilyn was also named one of NJ’s Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs of 2014, as announced by the Leading Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners (LWE) Initiative. Each year they choose a group of business women who exhibit outstanding performance and achievement in business and marketing innovation, community involvement, and advocacy for women. LWE cited Schlossbach for excellence and leadership in each one of these areas. After the interview, please check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.
It's hard to believe, but .com is all grown up. The domain we all know and love turns 30 this year. With roughly 116.5 million domains ending in ".com" - the most of any domain and more than all of the 25 next largest registries combined - .com's dominance is unquestionable. During the past 30 years, the Amazon isn't just the world's largest river, tweeting isn't just for the birds and "yahoo" means more than impending excitement.
To celebrate this monumental milestone of the World Wide Web's most recognized domain-and all the brilliant, online businesses that have flourished because of it-Verisign, the global leader in domain names and internet security, is helping the next generation of entrepreneurs get their business ideas off the ground with a chance to win up to $35,000 by sharing their best and brightest .com name.
I had the amazing opportunity to interview Bill Rancic, TV personality, businessman and entrepreneur and the first winner of Donald Trump's show, "The Apprentice".
Bill is not only an entrepreneur, he's an accomplished author, speaker, restaurateur, husband and father. We chatted about the dot.com anniversary, his role as one of 4 expert judges in the contest, along with some sound advice from this down-to-earth man!
Registering a creative, memorable and keyword-rich .com domain name through one of Verisign's registrars and entering it in the #InternetOfficial contest by April 30, 2015 could land a budding entrepreneur $35,000.

Anton’s Taproom, which opened this past October in Kansas City’s Crossroads District, is not your typical KC restaurant.

Host Kelly Scanlon sits down with owner and restaurateur Anton Kotar and talks about the eatery’s distinctive approach.
