Atlanta area teens organize 5K Run to support the children of the Israel Tennis & Education Centers Foundation

New ITEC Logo

Dani Blank, ITEC 5K, Co-Founder

ITEC truly embodies inclusion and unity in a region where that is very rare, and very different from where we live. We hope to not only raise much-needed funds, but let people know about about ITEC”

— Dani Blank, ITEC 5K, Co-Founder

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2019 / — There is nothing more empowering than helping others. That is what Atlanta area teens, Dani Blank and Emily Miller have set out to do by organizing a 5K Run to support the children at the Israel Tennis & Education Centers, planned for Sunday, September 29th at Newtown Park in Johns Creek, Georgia.

It was Dani who introduced the organization to her friend Emily. Dani has a life-long connection, inspired by her grandparents and parents. They involved her, from a young age, with this unique program in Israel that helps vulnerable children, of all faiths, many living on or below the poverty level, by educating and empowering them through academic enrichment and sports. This exposure taught her to “really fall in love with the Centers (ITEC) and what they do,” states Blank.

The Israel Tennis & Education Centers (ITEC) was founded in 1976 and over the last 43 years it has grown and evolved into one of the largest social service agencies for children in Israel. ITEC has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of children with the goal of igniting hope and opening pathways to a successful future for them and for Israel, now and for generations to come.

Ms. Blank has experienced the work of this remarkable organization first-hand and has gotten to know many of the youth involved in it – developing friendships with people her own age that live in very different circumstances than her own.

“The ITEC truly embodies inclusion and unity in a region where that is very rare – and very different from how I live,” states Blank. Dani and Emily are big supporters of Israel and wanted to do something that they could relate to, as they are both Track and Cross Country (running) student athletes at Johns Creek High School in Alpharetta, GA.

“We hope to not only raise some much-needed funds for ITEC, but what we really want is to let more people know about what they do.” What they love most about the ITEC is that they are able to “combine providing important things to children who need them, you know, the skills that you need in life, with sports. Also, they give them an education, a family – and the sport (tennis) is at very high level,” states Blank.

The ITEC 5K will take place on Sunday, September 29th, beginning at 10:30AM at Newtown Park in Johns Creek, Georgia. For more information on how you can participate or to get involved, please go to

About the Israel Tennis & Education Centers Foundation:
The Israel Tennis & Education Centers Foundation (ITC) is 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization that works tirelessly through the mediums of education and sport to enhance the development of Israeli youth. Since opening its first center in Ramat Hasharon in 1976, the ITEC has helped over 500,000 children, many of whom come from outlying and underserved towns throughout Israel. The 14 Israel Tennis & Education Centers stretch from Kiryat Shmona on the Lebanese border in the North to Beer Sheva bordering the Negev Desert in the South.

ITEC has created a model of ethnic integration through sports in a safe environment where each and every child is afforded the opportunity to play, dream, learn and make friends within a peaceful community. Many see the centers within their communities as a stable, nurturing “second home” that supports them as they develop into productive, healthy, well-rounded adults, with thousands receiving scholarships to university and employment opportunities, as a result of their participation.

Its impact extends far beyond the children that participate in the programs, making an immeasurable positive impact on the country, the communities surrounding each center, the teachers, coaches and families of the over half a million children that have benefited from ITEC.

The organization is focused on the core values of education, equality, empowerment and well-being. Through its social impact programs, a wide range of children are served, including youth at risk, immigrants from Ethiopian and Russia and children with special needs, from autism and ADHD to Down Syndrome as well as those with developmental and physical disabilities.

The goal of Israel Tennis & Education Centers is to ensure that every child in Israel is healthy, educated, equal and equipped to pursue their dreams, without religious, economic or social barriers, and has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

For more information or to donate, please go to: or contact Jacqueline Glodstein, Executive Vice President of Global Development at 212-784-9201 or . Tax deductible contributions are appreciated.

A New Play Opens in NYC "Good Morning Miss America" by Phyllis Yes

“With candor, humor and pathos, Yes’s play delves into serious health issues, conflicted family dynamics
and memory decline…” Maggi White, Portland Oregon.

NEW YORK CITY, NY, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2019 / — Well-known Portland visual artist Dr. Phyllis Yes decided to write her first play at the age of 75, and she wrote a fine one. “Good Morning Miss America” is her family self-portrait characterizing a family dealing with aging parents with Dementia, and children who don’t quite know how to navigate the scenario. The show has walked all the way from Portland Oregon to Decorah, Iowa, and now it is taking a short stroll on Off-Broadway at the historic Theatre 80 on St. Marks Place, in the lower east side of Manhattan October 2nd, 2019. The show opened at the Coho Theater in Portland, directed by Jane fellows. When Actor, Director, Producer Katie O’Regan met Phyllis last summer in Portland, the two hit it off right away. O’Regan knew she had to read Yes play and when she did, she knew it needed to go up on stage again, so she decided to open the show in Decorah, Iowa where she grew up, and it was a huge hit to sold out audiences with people leaving the theater talking about situations in their own families that mirrored the play. Then the legs of “Good Morning Miss America got longer. Gert Boyle, the amazing Chairman of Columbia Sportswear, and author of “One Tough Mother”, is a long- time friend of Phyllis Yes. Gert saw the play when it opened in Portland, and she loved it, saying it was very real. A year later, after seeing the production in Decorah, Phyllis told Gert about what a big hit the show was in Decorah and Gert decided to put on her first-time theater wings and become an angel producer of the show in New York City. Yes called O’Regan to tell her the n City Native and actress plays the Mother “Doris” with Dementia. “Lou” is played by Henry Packer New York Native and accomplished stage and film actor *courtesy of actor’s equity. Packer plays the step father struggling to stay at home with his beloved, ailing wife while he deals with his own onslaught of dementia. Katie O’Regan switches hats for this production and takes the stage in the lead role playing Jane the responsible parents from afar. “Sammy” the sister from Florida who doesn't visit often, is played by New Yorker and Julliard graduate Darynn Zimmer. The cast looks and acts like a real family meant to walk this journey together. Purchase tickets by calling or on-line.

Stealth’s Revolutionary Quantum Proof-of-Stake (qPoS) Released to Public Testnet


Stealth XST

The Stealth qPoS Internal Testnet ends, making way for Public Testnet

Stealth will soon be the fastest cryptographically private digital currency possible”

— Dr. James Stroud

DOVER, DE, USA, September 20, 2019 / — September 20, 2019 – Dover, DE (Press Release): Stealth’s next-generation consensus protocol, Quantum Proof-of-Stake, takes blockchain consensus to an unparalleled technological level, surpassing both other blockchain technologies in its combination of efficiency, economic foundations, and robustness.

Quantum Proof-of-Stake (qPoS) is the new groundbreaking technology behind the Stealth cryptocurrency. QPoS is an economic driven, stake-weighted consensus algorithm with scheduled validation, and represents a key breakthrough to achieve the holy grail of crypto: fast, feeless and private transactions on a platform scalable to thousands of transactions per second.

“Stealth will soon be the fastest cryptographically private digital currency possible.” Lead developer Dr. James Stroud announced. “With blazing fast 5 second blocks, qPoS is a game-changer and offers what state-of-the-art payment systems of the future require.”

QPoS has a unique approach to transaction validation, the core functionality of any blockchain system. Using XST (Stealth’s native currency), transaction validators purchase their rights from the blockchain. As a result, the purchasing price is removed from the money supply. These rights allow validators to process transactions and collect rewards for doing so. Validation rights are tokenized as non-fungible assets called StealthNodes, each of which is given specific slots in a schedule of block validation. This scheduling makes Stealth highly efficient.

Stealth qPoS also has a novel reputation system for StealthNodes. As StealthNodes sign blocks according to the schedule, they accrue a reputation score called “weight”. StealthNode weight increases with the square root of the net number of blocks a StealthNode has validated, where “net blocks" means the number of blocks validated minus the number of blocks missed in the schedule. StealthNodes earn increased rewards proportional to weight. Typically, the more blocks a StealthNode signs, the more it will earn for each block. Additionally, StealthNodes with more weight are considered more authoritative, and they influence chain trust proportional to their weight.

Stealth is the first blockchain system to have scheduled validators that are purchased. Unlike other scheduled block validation systems like BitShares, Lisk, and Eos, Stealth’s reputation system means that chain trust and block rewards are truly meritorious and based purely on objective performance, uninfluenced by the whims of founders, insiders, and the politically connected.

Stealth’s unique, public blockchain was launched in 2014, and their lead developer, Dr. James Stroud, recently presented at both Consensus New York and Elev8 Los Angeles, discussing their latest development milestones, including their new proof-of-stake consensus protocols.

Stealth is currently trading on multiple exchanges including Bittrex, Vinex, Bitinka, and SouthXchange. Additional market integrations are in process in anticipation of the full release of the new Quantum Proof-of-Stake development in several months.
