Written by admin on May 31st, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Vancouver BC. Canada. Sunil Gupta. India’s reputed newspaper Times of India reported, a story released by Punjab Police and Government of Punjab, linking Hardeep Singh Nijjer, a Surrey BC, based Plumber, with plotting extremism in Punjab. Government of Punjab has forwarded an Application to Government of India, seeking his extradition, in 2007 Bombings in a Movie Theatre in Ludhiana, where 7 people were killed.
Another Canadian Resident Mandeep Singh was arrested 2 weeks ago in Punjab, who has stated, Nijjer’s plans of fear of Terror, being practiced in Mission BC.
Canada’s Federal Public Safety Minister Raplh Goodale, refused to comment on the veracity of the Times of India story or any other information received from Govt.of India on Hardeep Singh Nijjer’s extradition.
British Columbia Peoples Party President, Vikram Bajwa, in Vancouver however has come in support of Hardeep Singh Nijjer’s case stating “Nijjer has no criminal record in Surrey BC or anywhere in Canada, we will object to any Extradition Application, for any innocent BC Resident, by any Foreign Government”. Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner only recently expressed her anguish, regarding shootings in Surrey, but RCMP has no history on Hardeep Singh Nijjer, ever since he moved into Surrey and is residing, since 1995. Liberal Member Sukhjit Gill, feels ” this is politically motivated due to Punjab Elections in 2017″.


The Big Move: Life Between the Turning Points

Written by admin on May 31st, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases
We have very few accounts of gerontologists who have grown old, and never before a memoir by a gerontologist who moved into a long-term care facility. This book is not only a first, but is a remarkable and riveting account of challenges all of us must contemplate.”–Rick Moody, AARP, Emeritus VP 

Anne M. Wyatt-Brown, Ruth Ray Karpen, and Helen Q. Kivnick Afterword by Margaret M. Gullette

Order now at iupress.indiana.edu
When her husband’s ill health forces them to move into an assisted living facility, Anne M. Wyatt-Brown suddenly finds herself surrounded by elderly residents. In this lively and provocative collection, other distinguished gerontologists reflect on Anne’s moving account of her transition to becoming a member of a vibrant and sociable community that offers care-giving support, while encouraging her to pursue her own interests, including exercising, reviewing articles for scholarly journals, serving on committees, and singing.

By redefining notions of care and community, undoing the stigmas of aging, and valuing the psychological factors involved in accepting assistance, this volume provides a bold new framework for thinking about aging, continuing care, making the big move to a retirement community, and living with vitality in the new environment.

“We Americans prize independence, but for many elderly people, the price they pay for independence is loneliness and worthlessness. The Big Move is a fascinating attempt to marry personal experience with academic analysis to help us all reconceive of one option for later-life living. Moving to a continuing care retirement community need not be viewed as a withdrawal from life, but rather as a new platform to manage one’s infirmities at the same time as one uses one’s skills.”
—Ruth Nemzoff, Huffington Post

“Readers will be drawn to this book for its clarity and candidness. It will appeal to people of all ages, but especially to the large cohort of readers aging into later life and facing important choices about their own care and that of their partners.”—Barbara Frey Waxman, author of To Live in the Center of the Moment: Literary Autobiographies of Aging

MORE REVIEWS:

“If you want to know in detail what it’s like to live in a continuing care community, read this slender volume. Culture critic Margaret Morganroth Gullette, whose books argue that our experience of aging is dictated more by our ageist culture than by our biology—and who blogs for SCF—contributes an afterword. Among many other things, she writes that:

Many of us in the midlife cohorts are stubbornly behaving as if we could remain outsiders [to old age] forever. I can’t help recalling Ian, a character in Anne Tyler’s 1991 novel, Saint Maybe. A man of scarcely 40, Ian suddenly feels in a bar that he was very likely the oldest person present:

He looked down at the hand encircling his glass—the grainy skin on his knuckles, the gnarled veins in his forearm. How could he have assumed that old people were born that way? That age was an individual trait, like freckles or blond hair, that would never happen to him?” The sooner we figure out how to be old, wisely and kindly, as life changes us, the better off American society will be. This is precious knowledge in the era of the New Longevity.”–from the Review by Flora Davis,  “Aging in Place, Is it a Pipe Dream?” Silver Century

Ben Tankard, Morris Day, Frankie Beverly & Maze to draw 20,000+ to Jazzfest

Written by admin on May 30th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

    Ben Tankard is the best selling gospel/jazz musician of all time and he will bring his talents along with his humor and “BENspirations” to Linn Park in Birmingham, AL for the 2016 Steel City Jazzfest on June 2-4.  The 3-day outdoor event will feature some of nation’s top musical acts including:  Morris Day and The Time, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Boney James, and more. 

JazzFest producer CEDRIC ALLEN says, “Having BEN TANKARD as a headliner on our show last year put this festival OVER THE TOP.  Not only is he an awesome performer and considered the ‘Godfather of GospelJazz,’ but he is also the star of the top family reality TV on Bravo/ NBC network –THICKER THAN WATER: THE TANKARDS. He draws TV fans to the event that are not jazz music fans. His TV presence gives the festival further credibility with our sponsors. He is a very motivational and inspiring “fan favorite” and his stage performance was so good last year that we booked him for this year’s event BEFORE he even left the stage“.  More then 20,000 are expected to attend this year’s event.

Tankard is having a Stellar year (pun intended), in that he just picked up his 15th Stellar Award for Instrumental CD Of The Year for his Full Tank 2.0 release. The Stellar Award is the highest awarded honor is gospel music.  In addition to over 100 gospel concerts scheduled on his Full Tank Tour,  The 6’6″ tall keyboardist is lighting up the stage for some of the nation’s stop Jazz festivals which have included :  Seabreeze Jazzfest, Catalina Island Jazzfest, and Jazzy88 Jazzfest.  Pretty good for an ex-pro basketball player who was injured then cut and started a new music career (but has never had piano lessons!).   In addition to his music success,  Tankard’s hit family reality show is now airing in it’s 3rd season and he is about to embark on a 6 month book tour for his new hardback book “The Full Tank Life”,  which releases late summer on Hachette Books (Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Joyce Meyer).

For family action you can catch Ben Tankard every Sunday night on Bravo for Thicker Than Water:The Tankards, but if you want to dance in the park and see the jazz master rock the the stage with his band,  you need to grab your lawn chair and join 20,000 other folks at Linn Park, Birmingham,AL June 2-4, 2016.

You won’t be sorry.

Lipstick Mountains Press Gets Bronze 2016 eLit Award for Erotic Fiction, “Chelsea Matinee – Memoirs of an Easy Woman” by B. K. Smith.

Written by admin on May 30th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

B.K. Smith authors “The Lipstick Mountains Memoirs” in which Chelsea Matinee is #1 in the series. Sands Point – Memoirs of a Money Trader is #2; Rattle Snake Lodge – Memoirs of a Seeing Woman is #3. The newest addition, Second Chance Ranch II – The Meaning of Ordeal is #4, and will be out summer 2016.

Lipstick Mountains Press is a boutique press. It publishes fiction and photography. It is a division of Madison Avenue Publishers, a small, cottage industry publishing house.

The 2016 eLit Award is dedicated to honoring the best e-books published each year for the entire North American market. Smith says to place third in erotic fiction in a very competitive market is a thrill, because she set out to write the “cleanest dirty book ever.” For something to be erotic it must be forbidden. As we mature as readers, the visuals matter more and more until the only stimulant that will do is the suggestion. In book #2, Sands Point – Memoirs of a Money Trader, the writing style is more descriptive and straightforward. It is a story of deception and Wall Street drama.

Each book stands alone with a different cast of characters. They are contemporary female heroes: complex, flawed and steeped in strength, curiosity, sexuality and intellect. The author is skilled in capturing the spirit of these women, portraying them as sympathetic, tragic and darkly powerful. Attention to small details is what elevates these stories. Each scene is painted in vivid color, and it is easy to lose yourself amongst the powerful imagery. The writing is poetic, rhythmic and verily voluptuous.

B.K. Smith has done a very difficult thing–created a body of work in which each story is a narrative that is rich and full and blissfully decadent, but also has substance. The books deal with themes modern women will identify with such as learning to master the skills required to navigate a world of powerful men, where they must balance sex and purity along with faith and reason in order to own their femininity and vulnerability, and ultimately emerge as intelligent, thoughtful, and capable women. Brilliant and evocative writing; this romance noir is classy, sexy and seductive.


(Pssst!) Wanna Save $100,000 on a Custom Home?

Tennessee Couple Says, “Yes,” to Modern High-Tech Option


“There were a lot of mechanical engineering reasons for why we chose that home.”

— Jerry McKibben, retired engineer

Paris, Tenn., May 26, 2016 — When it came time to retire in this modest town perched near the Kentucky state line, Jerry and Karen McKibben put their professional career experiences to work finding the perfect home to fit their needs.

He was an engineer, and she was a customer-focused inside sales rep. They had lived in all kinds of houses over the years, from conventional site-built abodes to a 20th century-style trailer house that was already on the land they bought in rural Tennessee.

But as it turned out, Tennessee’s little Paris, with its scaled-down replica of the Eiffel Tower and its claim to fame as home of the world’s largest annual fish fry, proved to be the perfect place to find the custom home of the 21st century — hiding in plain sight along Paris’ so-called “mobile home row.”

Of course, there have been no mobile homes built in the U.S. since June 1976, when new federal standards ushered in the era of the modern HUD-code manufactured home. So what the McKibbens found was an array of retailers with dozens of different models of contemporary factory-built homes on display.

They settled on an upscale, residential-style manufactured by Sunshine Homes, which they discovered at Paris’ Arrowhead Homes center.

Do they love their new home? Let them count the ways:

Energy Efficient

  • “Right now we’re totally electric and the bills have plummeted,” says Karen McKibben, the bill-payer of the household.

High Quality

  • “The kind of construction, the methods of construction, the materials that were used, the appliances — all those things … in my opinion make a manufactured home the better choice,” over conventional on site building, says Jerry McKibben, the engineer.

Beautiful, inside and out

  • “It is difficult to tell it from any home out there — stick built or otherwise,” he added.

And then, there is the price tag: $80,000 for a high-tech home that would cost $180,000 for a comparable site-built model.

“If more people knew the standards and quality of the manufacturing of manufactured homes, then a lot more people would buy,” says Karen McKibben.

See the McKibbens’ new home and the exacting standards under which it was assembled in the factory in this edition of MHLivingNews’ Inside MH: The Road Show. Watch the video here. ##

Popular UK Web Directory In.uk.com Starts Inclusion of Websites from All Parts of the World.

Written by admin on May 26th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases


One of the most preferred UK business directory In.uk.com has recently gone global by deciding to include websites from different parts across the world. This web directory is extremely popular in the UK as a highly efficient web platform for a large number of website categories including business, shopping, sports, arts, business, entertainment, news & society, and much more. Now, website owners from different parts of the world can benefit from their service by having their websites listed at In.uk.com.

As an efficient UK web directory, In.uk.com takes adequate measures to keep the directory free from spam. This is why the company reviews all their listings before their inclusion to the directory. Pornographic websites are never accepted at In.uk.com. The directory allows deep links, and all their listings are posted to the Twitter account of the directory. In.uk.com has two types of listing facilities for the websites. With one time review fee of £9, the basic listing service provides permanent listing and express inclusion. Website owners interested in having their websites above the basic listings may opt of the featured listing facility spending one time review fee of £15 only.

Online directories have been around ever since the emergence of the internet. These directories were popular alternatives for many to find out different websites before the search engines came to prominence. Even in today’s changing web landscape, there are many benefits of having a website listed in a good web directory. Firstly, web directories can help a website being found online without any difficulty. Quality directory links can accelerate the process of indexing by different search engines. Similarly, inbound links from a directory can be extremely useful in improving the search engine ranking of a website. Keyword relevancy of a website can also be improved by incorporating correct keywords in the directory submissions.

A number of changes have been made to the search engine algorithm in the recent years. However, business directories are still a highly popular alternative amongst websites looking for ultra targeted web traffic. Being extremely cost efficient, directory submission is a highly preferred business strategy for small businesses.

Announcing the introduction of worldwide service by In.uk.com, a senior official from the highly rated UK directory said, “ We are extremely happy to expand our service with the inclusion of the non-UK websites. Now, as a global web directory, we look forward to maintaining the same service standard that made us a trusted name in the UK.”

Minnova Corp. Announces Completion of Debt Settlement and Corporate Update

Written by admin on May 26th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

May 26, 2016, Toronto, Ontario – Minnova Corp. (TSXV: MCI, “Minnova” or “the Company”) is pleased to report that it has completed the previously announced debt settlement and wishes to provide an update on field and other activities leading to the proposed re-start of gold mining at the past producing PL Mine.

Debt Settlement

The Company is pleased to announce that it has settled up to $1,500,000 in debt with arm’s length and non-arm’s length parties.  Of this amount, $1,150,000 relates to the principal amount of unsecured debentures, carrying a 10% interest rate, which was settled by issuing an aggregate of 3,285,714 common shares priced at $0.35 per common share to arm’s length debt holders in full or partial settlement, as the case may be, of outstanding indebtedness.  The balance of $350,000 of the indebtedness relates to the provision of management and director consulting services and fees for an aggregate of 875,000 common shares, priced at $0.40 per common share, which will be issued to the Company’s CEO and directors in full or partial settlement, as the case may be, of the outstanding indebtedness.  

Pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), the debt settlement may be classified as a “related party transaction” as certain insiders of the Company have participated in the debt settlement.  Accordingly, pursuant to MI 61-101, the debt settlement, in so far as it relates to the insiders, may be subject to the minority shareholder approval and the formal valuation requirements.  The Company has determined that an exemption from the minority approval requirement of MI 61-101 is available under section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101, and that an exemption from the formal valuation requirement of MI 61-501 is available under section 5.5(a) of MI 61-101, because, in each case, neither the fair market value of the common shares to be issued in connection with, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the debt settlement, insofar as it involves “interested parties” (as defined in MI 61-101), exceeds 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.

Having regard to these exemptions and the Company’s desire to settle outstanding debt as soon as possible, the Company believes that it is reasonable to close the issue of the common shares in connection with the debt settlement less than 21 days after the date of this news release.

The TSX-V has conditionally approved the issue of the common shares in connection with the debt settlement, subject, in the case of the Company’s CEO, to receiving disinterested shareholder approval at the upcoming annual and special meeting of the shareholders of the Company scheduled for August 5, 2016. 

The common shares issued in connection with the debt settlement will be subject to a statutory four-month and one day hold period after the date of issue.

2016 Field Program Update

Diamond Drilling – The Company has completed phase one of its planned diamond drilling program.  A total of 1,000 meters were drilled in 2 holes designed to test down dip extensions to mineralization on the Sherridon and Main Zones.  Core samples have been dispatched to Accurassay of Thunder Bay and assay results will be announced when they are received.

2012 VTEM Survey Follow-up – In April of 2012 Minnova reported the completion of a 66km2 airborne Versatile Time Domain Electro Magnetic (“VTEM”) and magnetic survey.  Due to budgetary constraints none of the 22 identified anomalies were adequately ground truthed.  As part of the 2016 field season the company has initiated a program to ground truth several of the near mine untested anomalies that show similar geophysical characteristics to the response associated with the known gold mineralization at the PL and Nokomis deposits.  Field work on this initiative has generated initial positive results.  For example, the original 2012 geophysical interpretation of VTEM anomaly M-05 suggested it was related to a power line that provided power to the intake pumps that supplied fresh process water to the mill during operations. Preliminary field work suggests that a portion of the 1200 meter anomaly cannot be fully attributed to the power line, which remains largely intact.  A distinct portion of the anomaly measuring approximately 300 meters in length, exhibits a considerably longer wavelength and higher amplitude conductive response that is now attributed to a ground conductor response on what is interpreted to be the north west strike extension of the Sherridon Zone (the uppermost of the 5 stacked mineralized zones that make up the PL deposit).  The ground conductor portion of VTEM anomaly M-05 is located 300 meters northwest of the PL mill.

Underground Mining Equipment Selection Process

As previously released the company is engaged in discussions with a number of consulting engineers and equipment suppliers to further refine the underground mine development plan for the proposed re-start of the PL Mine under our existing Environment Act License 1207E.  Key requirements of the underground equipment being discussed are; a) small size, to achieve minimal mine openings and targeted narrow stope heights, b) electric power to capitalize on Manitoba’s low industrial power costs and c) proven operational performance in comparable shallow dipping-narrow vein mine settings, among other operational, maintenance and safety factors typical associated with equipment selection.

To that end we are in discussions with a number of equipment suppliers including; Aramine, Brokk AB, Dok-Ing, Dyno Nobel, RDH Mining, Sandvik and many others to review their respective Ultra-Low Profile and Extra-Low Profile (ULP/XLP) remote control equipment, specialized drilling and blasting equipment for possible application in our PL Mine re-start plan. 

Gorden Glenn, CEO commented “Like Minnova, mining equipment suppliers have embraced innovation and successfully adapted many of their original equipment designs to small space underground mining situations where minimal mine openings, narrow stope widths and the use of remote control are desired.  The production and remote control abilities appear to meet our corporate mandate to minimize ore dilution and enhance safety by eliminating miner exposure to unsafe working conditions”.

As our various 2016 work programs advance we will look forward to providing further updates in the near future.

Mr. Brian Robertson, B. Sc., P. Eng.., a Director of the Company and a “Qualified Person” under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information in this press release.

Preparations for The August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse

Written by admin on May 26th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Surprise, AZ, US, May 26, 2016 (tropicalsails.com) – The year 2017 will be a grand year for astronomers, photographers, and astronomy enthusiasts is as alike as North America will bear witness to an astronomical phenomenon that has not happened in the USA since Feb. 26, 1979. The 21st of August 2017 will see the Moon casting a shadow on the face of the Earth as it blocks the Sun to produce a total solar eclipse

The perfect alignment of the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth will cast the Moon’s shadow on a path  a little over 100 miles wide taking a wide arching through the USA including Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, southern Illinois,  eastern Kentucky, Tennessee and South Carolina. Solar eclipse chasers, amateur astronomers, and ecliptophiles from around the world will be converging on these areas of the United States to witness an astronomical event that has befuddled men throughout history.

The event will produce some of the mind-boggling effects such as remarkable solar prominences, the sun’s corona, and some eerie lighting effects that will bring observers back to ancient times and relive the awe and fear of civilizations that worshiped the Sun God. As one client of Tropical Sails Corp aptly put is, “The whole phenomenon is the closest thing you can ever have to seeing the face of God.” In fact, day will be as dark as the night and spectators can get a glimpse of the different planets of the Solar System is a phenomenon surreal in itself.

According to Daniel Oppliger, Tropical Sails Corp’s President, “The duration of the solar eclipse increases the closer you are to the center line of the eclipse as well as the apex of the eclipse ark. At Tropical Sails we will be largely considering historical cloud cover as well as the overall length of the eclipse.”

Predicting west of the Grand Tetons will have the highest probabilities of clear skies, Tropical Sails Corp will offer three Solar Eclipse tours on the 21st of August 2017, setting up observation in the Teton Valley near Driggs, Idaho. The solar eclipse tours include the 8-night Teton Spring Lodge and Yellowstone Adventure, the 7-night Yellowstone, Historic Hatchet Resort and Tetons Solar Eclipse Adventure, and the 3-night Tetons Solar Eclipse fly-in package from Salt Lake City. The first two tours will feature a Snake River rafting trip, a wildlife safari in the early evening, and a traditional Chuck Wagon dinner.

Established in 1991, Tropical Sails Corp has taken clients all over the world with one-of-a-kind total solar eclipse experiences including Africa, Australia, Baja California, China, Tahiti, and Turkey. Just recently they had groups in the Java Sea of Indonesia this March 9, 2016.

For more information on the different Total Solar Eclipse Tours, interested parties may logon to www.tropicalsails.com or give them a call at 1(800)595-1003 or 1(623)444-8195.


BLUE RHINO® AND OPERATION BBQ RELIEF® OFFER RECIPES FOR MEMORIAL DAY COOKOUTS

Written by admin on May 26th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Partnering to Feed the Displaced

Blue Rhino became a major sponsor of Operation BBQ Relief this year. “This partnership is such a natural one for us,” said Tod Brown, CEO of Blue Rhino, the number one brand of tank exchange and marketer of a wide array of outdoor living products. “Blue Rhino certainly plays an important role in good times in backyards, but when bad times come, people can need our products even more. Our sponsorship will help Operation BBQ Relief’s expert chefs cook great meals and provide warm places for Americans whose world has been torn apart by Mother Nature.”

Under their partnership agreement, Blue Rhino supplies Operation BBQ Relief with propane, which is used on all deployments for both cooking and heating. Blue Rhino also provides products such as firepits, grills, grilling tools, and accessories for use on deployments and in fundraising. In addition, Blue Rhino Operation BBQ Relief information can be found on Blue Rhino’s website, social media channels, and in other marketing vehicles.

Founded in 2011 in the wake of the devastating tornado in Joplin, Mo., Operation BBQ Relief has since provided more than 700,000 meals during nearly 30 deployments in 18 states. The organization has 3,500 registered volunteers who travel to hard-hit areas to barbecue and serve food to hungry people. In 2015, co-founder Hays was runner-up on the Food Network show, “Chopped,” in Grill Masters Season 2, and talked about Operation BBQ Relief.

 Blue Rhino helps create special moments in backyards, patios and homes across America through its family of brands, which includes Blue Rhino, the number one brand in tank exchange, an impressive line of innovative, premier barbecue accessories and outdoor lifestyle tools by Mr. Bar-B-Q® (www.MrBarBQ.com), and fire pits by Endless Summer®.
