Kansas City Entrepreneur Patrick Kucera To Receive Humanitarian Award

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Kansas City – Nov 9, 2017

 

Patrick Kucera, affectionately known as “PK”, received the iChange Nations™ World Civility Award on November 4th, for his humanitarian work in disaster relief and mentoring business owners in the U.S. and in Third World International development. For over a decade, Kansas City businessman, mentor and entrepreneur Patrick PK Kucera, has used innovative leadership skills and emergency response abilities to coordinate with local authorities, business and ministries to organize frontline operations for thousands of families devastated by hurricanes.

 

The Global International Award event which was held on November 4th in Grand Rapids, Michigan, was hosted by founder and president, Dr. H.E. Clyde Rivers. iChange Nations™ is a professional institution that equips, mentors and trains highly esteemed individuals who have impacted the world with their humanitarian leadership. Former recipients of the iChange Nations™ World Civility Award include former President of Zambia, Kenneth Kuanda and Manoj Shah, former Head of Lions Clubs for the African continent.

 

One of the greatest challenges in providing disaster relief and restoration is the gridlock that often occurs between local, federal and state agencies, insurance adjustors and restoration contractors. PK has used his unique set of skills to provide a voice of reason in the midst of death and destruction. In dozens of communities, Kucera helped facilitate cooperation, rallied crowds of locals to rebuild lives, reopen businesses and restore schools. Over the last decade, PK assisted ground zero efforts with tornados, floods, fires and for Hurricanes Katrina, Ivan, Ike, Irene and spent months helping in New York, New Jersey, Brownsville and the Gulf Coast.

 

In the business world, PK is a businessman, mentor, innovator and speaker. His enthusiasm and “entrepreneurial mindset” for individuals and corporations make him a highly sought-after speaker and business advisor both locally and internationally. His inspiring book, The Revival of Revenue will be released in early 2018.

 

A life-long entrepreneur and minister, PK recently returned home from Houston Texas, where he and his wife, Mari, provided direction, support and contributions to local relief efforts that have provided critically needed food, water and supplies for thousands of families victimized by Hurricane Harvey.

 

Throughout his life, PK has served people of all ages and backgrounds, given to those who are less fortunate, and has been involved in ministry and business. However, his passion is to touch and change the lives of people. PK states “Life is filled with disasters, both personal and natural. It is important to use our God given talents and resources to help others to restore what has been lost and discover the hope of what lies ahead.” PK is currently exploring running for an elected office in the great State of Kansas.

 

The iChange Nations™ Global International Golden Rule Honor Event featured several world leaders in attendance. The Global Day of Honor also launched its historic Women of Golden Rule Dialogue feature and concluded with the prestigious Global Golden Rule International Award Night of Honor.

Dubai UAE and Australian Real Estate Investment CEO Wins BURJ CEO Award

Dubai, UAE- October 16, 2017 – On 10 October, one of the real estate world’s up-and-coming young entrepreneurs, Zaki Ameer, founder and CEO of Dream Design Property, travelled to London to receive the “Best Global Real Estate Investment Company” BURJ CEO award from the CEO Clubs Network Worldwide. Royal family members from both the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the United Kingdom (UK) attended, as did UK government officials and members of the UK Parliament, top international business executives, and VIPs from all over the world.

The award, which CEO Clubs Network Founder Tariq Nizami dubbed “an Oscar for CEOs,” honoured Ameer for his positive contribution to the booming Sydney real estate market, which he has recently expanded into the UAE and Eastern Africa. A panel of international judges chose Ameer for his work in mentoring investors to choose real estate investment strategies that produce hefty returns on their investments.

Says Ameer, “In a competitive market like Dubai’s, investors must choose their properties wisely. At Dream Design Property, we teach our clients to make wise choices and stay in the market for the long term.” He adds, “Although this award is a great honour, it’s even a greater honour to be a part of the lives of people building financial security for a lifetime.”

Ameer hasn’t always been so successful. At only 18, he came to Australia as a student with only debt and a dream. Determined to stay, the plucky young man worked days and studied nights to claw his way out of debt to a bachelor’s degree in business. After finding a mentor, Ameer tried his hand in real estate investment. Fast forward a few years, and Ameer had amassed a successful real estate portfolio worth three million dollars.

With this successful venture under his belt, Ameer founded Dream Design Property in 2012. Since then, he has used his savvy to guide his clients through the investment process.

Dream Design Property (http://www.ddpproperty.com.au/) provides clients with opportunities to invest in prime real estate in the greater Sydney area, as well as in Dubai and Africa. Staffed with expert financial advisers, the company helps its clients become more informed real estate investors through education.

Bones Like Snowflakes to Kick Off Tour with Acclaimed Drummer Avinash Ramachandra

LOS ANGELES, Calif. –  The rock band Bones Like Snowflakes will kick off its 2017 tour with new drummer Avinash Ramachandra in October in Los Angeles.

“I’m very excited about joining the band taking part in this upcoming tour,” Ramachandra said. “The most exciting thing of being in a band is going on tour, you get to travel to so many cities and countries together and you’re getting paid to pretty much have fun while making music!”

Although dates for its upcoming shows are still pending, Bones Like Snowflakes will launch its nationwide tour in Los Angeles at The Echo sometime in October.

Known for energetic drumming and work with a slew of bands, most recently the Acid Quartet, Ramachandra brings an energy and playful approach to his work that has earned him a strong following and growing fan base.

“He blew us away at the audition and we knew right away he would do a great job for us.” Joseph said of the band’s new drummer. “We’re very excited to have him on board.”

The band, established in 2010 by Marvin Joseph, is known for its eclectic post-rock sound which features electric guitars and synthesizers in a blend of rock, jazz and reggae into a compelling blend of instrumental sound. The band is made up of Joseph on lead guitar, Marvin Zenarosa on rhythm guitar, Denise Santos on keyboards, Drew Elder on bass and Ramachandra on drums.

Born in Bangalore, India, Ramachandra found a passion for drumming began when he first watched Iron Maiden performing live at the age of 16. It was at that moment that he realized he wanted to play music for life.

 After taking private drumming lessons and going on to join several bands, he graduated with a Bachelor’s in Engineering in Computer Science and decided to seek his fortune in the U.S. where he began studying music at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood. He would go on to perform with bands such as the Acid Quartet, Caleb Mark and others.

“Bones Like Snowflakes is a very unique band. Every song has a certain theme even though they are just instrumental and have no lyrics,” Ramachandra said. “The music has a very weird way of speaking to the audience through sound and visual backgrounds. The whole thing live is just a beautiful audio/visual trip.”

Bones Like Snowflakes is known for its recent album “Winter Quay/Summer Blankets,” as well as its other albums “Second Star to the Right,” and “Silent Movies I,” as well as the EP “Rewriting Icarius.”

“Time is for Dragonflies and Angels” by J.M. Erickson Win’s Gold at Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards

J.M. Erickson’s Time is for Dragonflies and Angels wins gold medal in the fiction anthology category at the Readers’ Favorite 2017 International Book Award Contest.

Time is for Dragonflies and Angels is a collection of flash science fiction and novellas that embraces the ideas of multi-universes and dimensions, critical decisions and judgments, and human struggles associated with racism and dystopian societies.

Divine Zape, Reader’s Favorite Reviewer describes this award-winning anthology well:

Time is for Dragonflies and Angels by J.M. Erickson is a beautiful offering for fans of sci-fi and fantasy who are also into short stories and novellas. The collection features powerful themes, including parallel universes, man’s struggle to come to grips with his human predicament, racial discrimination, and many more. This collection has a lot to offer readers with diverse tastes. Those who enjoy dystopian themes will feel very comfortable with Rogue Event featuring the game that many people are familiar with, the struggle for control where a select group wants to control the workings of the lives of others. Read about a widower and an autistic young man in a one-of-a-kind adventure to find meaning in Recount Our DreamsThe Gray is a moving tale that features the mechanics of bias, of racism, and beautifully portrays how a group can elect itself as the judge of others based on what makes them look different. And there is more!”

Time is for Dragonflies and Angels has garnered more critical praise:

Time is for Dragonflies and Angels, the new book from sci fi author J.M. Erickson is a collection of short stories in the tradition of the classic science fiction writing compendiums, evoking well-loved writers such as Aldous Huxley and George Orwell, with clear influences from other giants of the genre as we go along.” – Self-Publishing Review

“This book falls into that rare group that tells unexpected and original stories that don’t rely on cliché’s or overused plot devices – nice, especially in the Sci-Fi genre where it is hard to find really unique plotlines and genuine character development.” – Indie Book Reviewers

“In every story, the author displays bright moments of humor alongside darker bits of existential dread. His stories succeed on two levels, both as diverting bits of adventure and as deeper commentary on our modern life.” – Pacific Book Reviewer

About the Author

In addition to creating the Birds of Flight series and the other award-winning science fiction stories Future Prometheus and Intelligent Design, Erickson holds a BA in psychology and sociology from Boston College, a master’s degree in psychiatric social work from the Simmons School of Social Work, and post-graduate certification in post-trauma treatment from Boston University School of Social Work.

Air vs Sea: Is there a modal shift in cold chain logistics?

 

  • There are numerous reports of cargo switching to ocean freight from air cargo, including certain pharmaceutical products, flowers and fruit.
  • Overall the global cold chain market remains highly competitive and fragmented.
  • Innovations in big data and the Internet of Things could transform asset utilisation and the protection of sensitive cargo across the supply chains.

05 June 2017, Bath, UK: Ti is pleased to announce that its latest report, Cold Chain Logistics 2017, is now available to download.

Cold Chain Logistics 2017 offers insight into the complex, but potentially lucrative, nature of temperature-controlled supply chains.

The market continues to grow as new cold chains are created as a result of the buying power of rising middle classes in China and other developing countries, and by new demands for healthier and higher quality products. At the same time, however, restrictions on pharmaceutical production and growing consumer awareness of food safety is pushing the tightening of government regulations on temperature-controlled supply chains.

As a result, reefer container technology has seen improvements in recent years. Not only can reefers control temperature more accurately, but they also monitor humidity, light and shocks. The visibility this provides has helped improve the quality of the reefers by encouraging further innovation. This allows newer reefers to keep perishable goods for longer, meaning a shorter travel time is a less important factor.

Shipping lines with a stake in cold chain logistics are undoubtedly benefiting from breakthrough capabilities in reefer container technology. There are numerous anecdotal reports of cargo switching to ocean freight from air cargo, including certain pharmaceutical products, flowers and fruit.

Ti’s Quantitative Analyst, Andrew Ralls, however explained, “Air freight carriers will need to innovate in the same way ocean freight carriers have done, though strong global trade of agricultural products such as trees & flowers, vegetables and fruits, is set to continue and this will aid volumes for both modes of transport.

Cold Chain Logistics 2017 is a 50 page report that provides analysis of the market and commentary around the future prospects of the industry as a whole, as well as from a logistics market, vertical sector and geographical perspective.

Eclipse Across America, Inc and Curiosity Stream partner to produce first limited series about the Historic Eclipse of August 21st, 2017

Eclipse Across America, Inc. and CuriosityStream have partnered to create a four episode limited series titled Eclipse Across America designed to build public awareness for the historic, upcoming Eclipse on August 21st, 2017.  Coast-to-coast principal photography was completed March 2017.

CuriosityStream, the world’s first ad-free streaming service for factual programs in science, technology, nature, history and more, is the vision of Discovery Communications founder John Hendricks, with former Executive Vice President of Global Content for NGC Worldwide, Steve Burns, as Head of Content. This limited series is the first offering available about the dynamics of how and where to see this once-in-a-lifetime Eclipse.

Slated for a July 13th, 2017 premiere, the limited series will feature experts, scientists, animation and stunning 4k cinematography that is the hallmark of CuriosityStream programming.

 “This will be the first time in almost four decades that a total solar eclipse will be visible from the United States,” said CuriosityStream’s Steve Burns.  “The Eclipse Across America team travelled from the shores of Oregon across our great nation to South Carolina to reveal to our audience the best, and oftentimes secret, spots to witness this remarkable event, and to showcase not only the most enjoyable way to experience the eclipse, but also the science behind it.”

Eclipse Across America, Inc. was co-founded by filmmaker/director and Eclipse Chaser Mark Bender and Producer Elizabeth (Betty) Buckley.  They are joined on this CuriosityStream production by Michael Mavretic, who serves as writer/producer for the series. The EAA team previously worked together on the National Geographic special, Easter Island Eclipse.

Each episode focuses on a different aspect – from viewing locations to key details of this Eclipse; From the science of how and why eclipses happen, to the different ways scientists, eclipse chasers, and the general public can watch and experience it.

Says Bender, “Having travelled across the entire country along the path of totality, I was humbled at my journey’s conclusion on the coast in South Carolina. Once there I was struck by what a truly unique moment this total eclipse will be for this vast and diverse nation!”

The Oregon segment of the trip features astronomer, professor, eclipse chaser, and artist, Tyler Nordgren, who created an original “Eclipse Across America” poster, available free for all to download on the NASA and EAA website.

The series reveals how different communities along the eclipse path are preparing for the event.  States are expecting huge crowds, while most hotels along the path are sold out.  Some municipalities have gone into full emergency preparedness mode.

Along the path, from Lincoln City, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina, festivals large and small are planned, from wineries in the Willamette Valley to the events in Columbia, South Carolina, where the local baseball team, The Fireflies, will play—then pause the game for the whole stadium to witness the eclipse.

Similar events, some scientific and many celebratory, can be found all along the path the shadow of the moon will create as it crosses the continental United States for 90 continuous minutes.

Meanwhile, the series explores how the scientific community sees this event as perhaps the greatest opportunity to observe the sun and its all important corona in a lifetime.  With so many locations to choose from across the eclipse path, the question facing astronomers and physicists isn’t whether or not to go to the eclipse, it’s where they should go to give themselves the best shot at clear skies.
