TV One and Boys & Girls Clubs of America to be saluted at 35th Annual Walter Kaitz Foundation Fundraising Dinner

These two organizations epitomize the Walter Kaitz Foundation’s belief that a demonstrated commitment to enhance diversity and inclusion can be achieved in ground-breaking and innovative ways.”

— Michelle Ray

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — TV One, the network designed to entertain and inform a diverse audience of adult Black viewers, and Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the national organization that has enabled young people most in need to achieve great futures as productive, caring, responsible citizens, will be honored for their commitment to diversity and inclusion at the 2018 Walter Kaitz Foundation Fundraising Dinner on October 17, in New York City.

This year's milestone 35th Anniversary Kaitz Dinner will take place on Wednesday, October 17 at New York's Marriott Marquis, under the theme "Diversity Through the Decades." Proceeds from the event will support the programs and initiatives of three key industry organizations: the Emma L. Bowen Foundation, the National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC), and Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT). Each year, while bringing together media and telecommunications leaders to advance diversity, equity and inclusion across the industry, the dinner raises more than $1 million in support of the programs and initiatives of these key groups.

TV One will be honored as the 2018 Diversity Champion, an award given to organizations that act as catalysts for diversity throughout the media and telecommunications industry. Diversity Champions motivate the industry to embrace and value diversity by serving as role models, inspiring and encouraging excellence, removing barriers that hinder progress, and empowering others with opportunities.

From the provocative original programming it produces, to the bold REPRESENT men’s health and Hurricane Harvey relief initiatives it recently launched, TV One exemplifies the values articulated by the Walter Kaitz Foundation. TV One’s commitment to these values is reflected across the entire organization, influencing not just in the on-screen content that captivates audiences, but also in the internal mechanisms that ensure diversity of thought and contribution in every aspect of their day-to-day operations.

“Opportunity is the great equalizer in business and in life,” said Michelle Rice, general manager at TV One. "Our CEO, Alfred Liggins has been a huge champion of diversity in our industry, and certainly, TV One has provided many opportunities to our employees, vendors, and partners that have made real impact on their lives, businesses and in the community. With TV One, Alfred continues to build upon the legacy of his mother, Cathy Hughes, Urban One, Inc. founder and chairperson. TV One is thrilled and incredibly humbled by this recognition and we share this honor with every employee at the company.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of America will be honored as the 2018 Diversity Advocate, an award presented to an individual or organization outside of the media and telecommunications industry that has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to diversity. The award recognizes visionary leadership that fosters a more embracing and inclusive environment. The focus of Boys & Girls Clubs of America is to ensure that young people graduate from high school with a plan for the future, that focuses on developing skills, thinking independently and cultivating self-esteem.

“Over the last 150 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of America has constantly changed to meet the needs of kids and teens in an ever-changing world. We believe where a child is from, or the circumstances surrounding them, must not limit their access to opportunities that can change their lives for the better,” said Jim Clark, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “We want to close the opportunity gap for all young people, preparing them to be innovators and leaders who shape our world. Thank you to the Walter Kaitz Foundation for recognizing our focus on diversity and commitment to inclusion.”

“These two organizations epitomize the Walter Kaitz Foundation’s belief that a demonstrated commitment to enhance diversity and inclusion can be achieved in ground-breaking and innovative ways across all organizations,” said Michelle Ray, acting executive director of the Walter Kaitz Foundation. “This 35th Anniversary milestone offers our industry a unique opportunity to reflect upon the work we’ve all done to make diversity and inclusion one of the cornerstones of our industry while we chart a course for the future.”

This year’s Annual Dinner is being spearheaded by a distinguished committee of industry visionaries led by Josh Sapan, president & CEO, AMC Networks and Dave Watson, president & CEO, Comcast Cable, and Senior EVP, Comcast Corporation.

NAMIC announces the super heroes of its 2018 Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards

EMMA logo

Award Entries Soar 28 Percent Year-Over-Year

NAMIC’s EMMAs recognize those in the industry who develop marketing practices acknowledging the changing demographics driving our nation today.”

— Shana Bellot, EMMA judge and NAMIC Multicultural Marketing Committee member

NEW YORK, USA, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) today announced the winners of its Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards (EMMA). The competition recognizes excellence in marketing efforts designed to attract and retain culturally diverse audiences and customers among African American, Asian, Latinx, LGBTQ, disabilities communities and other market segments. This year’s EMMA winners will be celebrated during the 32nd Annual NAMIC Conference “Empower Leaders, Create Super Heroes” on October 16-17, 2018 at the New York Marriott Marquis.

“As communication leaders, it is important to be forward-thinking when connecting with multi-ethnic consumers,” said Shana Bellot, client service director for StrawberryFrog, EMMA judge and NAMIC Multicultural Marketing Committee member. “NAMIC’s EMMAs recognize those in the industry who develop marketing practices acknowledging the changing demographics driving our nation today. This year’s winning campaigns underscore how targeted, diverse communication results in genuine consumer connections.”

Recognizing the media and entertainment industry’s commitment to implementing best practices, the Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards highlight creative, strategic and innovative multicultural marketing approaches. The NAMIC Multicultural Marketing Committee, a consortium of industry experts, provides guidance for the EMMA competition, which has two award categories: Integrated Marketing Campaigns and Marketing Tactics. Entries in each category were judged within four divisions: Media Content Creators and Distributors, Networks and Communications Suppliers, Brands and All Other Media.

A judging panel of independent industry experts evaluated entries, which were up 28% YOY, and selected winners based on an assessment of strategy, implementation and results. Deviating from the traditional “best of” competition method, each entry was judged against a standard of excellence and not against other entrants, resulting in the potential for zero to multiple winners in each category.

The EMMAs is presented in partnership with Cablefax and the winners will be featured in the October 2018 edition of Cablefax: The Magazine. A complete listing of winners follows:

Tempera on paper titled Landscape Study, attributed to Pierre-Auguste Renoir (est. $40,000-$60,000).

Lovely 15 inch by 19 inch framed tempera and gouache on paper attributed to Claude Monet (est. $80,000-$120,000).

The watercolor Impressionist, Pop and Modern paintings are by or attributed to renowned artists such as Picasso, Monet, van Gogh, Franz Kline and Sam Francis.

Our auctions have grown to the point where we focus more on smaller selections of excellent paintings and drawings. It allows those with specific interests to ponder masterpieces without distraction. ”

— Bruce Wood

FRANKLIN, MA, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — FRANKLIN, Mass. – An elite selection of 54 original oil and watercolor Impressionist, Pop and Modern paintings by and attributed to renowned artists such as Picasso, Monet, van Gogh, Franz Kline and Sam Francis will come up for bid in an auction slated for Thursday, October 4th, by Woodshed Art Auctions, online and in the 500 Gallery at 475 Franklin Village Drive in Franklin.

Live bidding will begin promptly at 5:30 pm Eastern time. People can register and bid now, at www.woodshedartauctions.com. Previews will be held at 500 Gallery starting September 26th.

“Our auctions have grown to the point where we’d like to focus on smaller selections of excellent paintings and drawings,” said Bruce Wood of Woodshed Art Auctions. “It allows those with specific interests to ponder masterpieces without distraction. Previewing this exhibition of paintings at 500 Gallery is a serene, museum-like experience. We invite everyone to come out.”

Pablo Picasso (Sp., 1881-1973) will make multiple appearances in the sale. The star lot promises to be an oil on canvas by the Spanish Surrealist titled Portrait of a Woman, measuring 21 inches by 25 ¼ inches in the frame and signed and dated “7.1.39” top right (est. $200,000-$300,000). Picasso was arguably the most dominant and influential artist of the first half of the 20th century.

Another Picasso in the auction is an attribution, titled Woman in Chair, appropriately estimated at $60,000-$80,000. The 7 inch by 9 inch unframed oil on paper is dated “23.5.54” and stamped with the Goldwish Gallery verso. Associated mostly with pioneering Cubism, alongside Georges Braque, Picasso also invented collage and contributed a great deal to Symbolism and Surrealism.

Two other artworks in the sale, in addition to Picasso’s Portrait of a Woman, could easily soar to six figures. One is an unframed 18 inch by 20 inch still life oil on canvas attributed to Richard Diebenkorn (Am., 1922-1993), signed and dated “70” bottom right (est. $150,000-$250,000). Diebenkorn is an abstract expressionist best known for his 135 late-career Ocean Park paintings.

The other six-figure candidate is a 15 inch by 19 inch framed tempera and gouache on paper attributed to the renowned French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840-1926), titled Waterlilies (est. $80,000-$120,000). The painting is artist signed and verso marked with a gallery stamp and reference number, with a certificate of authenticity from Art Collectors Group in Luxembourg.

An oil on canvas by a follower of Edward Hopper (Am., 1882-1967), titled Office at Night, the Hopper original of which is held at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, has a pre-sale estimate of $60,000-$80,000. The vintage 1940s 28 inch by 34 ¼ inch framed work, signed “Edward Hopper” bottom right, depicts a man working through the night, alone in his office. The Minneapolis version has the addition of the man’s secretary (based on Hopper’s wife, Jo).

An oil on canvas painting attributed to Chaim Soutine (1893-1943), the Russian-French artist best remembered for his expressionist depictions of meat carcasses, is expected to hammer for $60,000-$80,000. The signed work, titled Man Dressed in Pirate Garb, measures 21 inches by 29 inches in the frame. The rather tame depiction is perhaps an early work from his studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, as it is a somewhat unusual subject for Soutine.

An oil on canvas abstract composition attributed to Franz Kline (Am., 1910-1962), signed bottom left and measuring 13 inches by 18 ½ inches in the frame, should bring $60,000-$80,000. Kline was known for his black and white paintings. He contributed to the avant-garde movement and his work exemplified the Action Painting achievements of the Abstract Expressionist artists.

An oil on canvas attributed to the Russian maritime painter Ivan Aivazovsky (1817-1900), titled Ship at Sea, carries an estimate of $50,000-$60,000. The 26 ¼ inch bv 33 ½ inch (in the frame) painting is artist signed with a monogram lower right and signed in Cyrillic with 1895 on verso.
Aivazovsky was the last of the true academic painters and the main painter of the Russian Navy.

A tempera on paper Landscape Study attributed to Pierre-Auguste Renoir (Fr., 1841-1919), housed in a handsome frame that measures 12 ½ inches by 15 ¾ inches, is expected to finish at $40,000-$60,000. The work is verso marked with the stamp of Gallery Simon in Paris and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the Art Collectors Group in Luxembourg.

A 24 inch by 20 inch oil on canvas by the second-generation abstract expressionist Michael Goldberg (Am., 1924-2007), titled Dune House No. 2, is estimated at $8,000-$12,000. The painting is artist signed and titled and dated “1960” on verso. Goldberg was associated with the New York School. His work synthesized Western painting traditions and Eastern philosophies.

Woodshed Art Auctions is a family-owned art gallery specializing in oil painting restoration and live and online art auctions, celebrating its 50th anniversary. The firm is always accepting quality artworks for future auctions.

Infinite Beauty shares details of its seven U.S. boutique spa locations

Infinite Beauty

From New York and Florida to Maryland and California, Infinite Beauty boasts eight attractive boutique spa and retail locations across the United States.

BOCA RATON, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A genuinely upscale beauty brand offering a wide range of cosmetic products, skin treatment solutions, and spa services, perhaps Infinite Beauty's two best-known locations are based in New York. The brand currently enjoys positions within both Westchester Mall and Roosevelt Field Mall, located in White Plains and Garden City respectively.

"Westchester Mall is home to some of today's most iconic and fashionable retailers," explains Eric Inbar, Infinite Beauty's vice president of operations. Alongside Infinite Beauty, brands at the famous mall include Tiffany and Burberry, as well as stores belonging to technology behemoths such as Apple and Microsoft.

Meanwhile, Infinite Beauty's Roosevelt Field Mall spa shares its location with over 250 stores, many of which are world renowned, including Bloomingdale's, Macy's, and Nordstrom. "Roosevelt Field Mall is, in fact, not only one of the largest shopping destinations in the state of New York but one of the largest in the entire country," Inbar adds.

Both Westchester Mall and Roosevelt Field Mall locations offer the highly-exclusive HydraFacial MD® Highlights treatment, which boasts a combination of invigorating spa therapies and advanced medical technology, according to the brand. Inbar points out that a third Infinite Beauty spa location also now boasts the HydraFacial MD® Highlights device. "By popular demand, we've recently installed the technology within our Maryland spa for clients to enjoy," he adds.

A third New York Infinite Beauty location can be found within New York City at 1031 3rd Avenue, on the East Side of the borough of Manhattan.

Currently, the brand has one Florida location in Boca Raton. Boca Raton is famed for its beaches, parks, and golf courses. This location offers Infinite Beauty's extensive range of advanced beauty therapies, facials, and anti-aging treatments.

Infinite Beauty's West Coast spas are situated in Santa Clara and Roseville, California. The brand's Santa Clara location can be found at Westfield Valley Fair Mall, while their second Californian spa is positioned within Westfield's highly popular Galleria, at Roseville Mall, one of the state's largest shopping malls.

The company's seventh spa location, in Maryland, and now boasting treatment with HydraFacial MD® Highlights, can be found within Westfield Montgomery Mall, Bethesda. "Bethesda," says Inbar, "is an attractive suburb of Washington, DC and a perfect location for Infinite Beauty."

Treatments on offer at all seven locations currently include the brand's best selling signature facial, exclusive gold facial, and red carpet treatment. High-tech treatments on offer include high-frequency, microcurrent, ultrasonic, LED, and galvanic therapies among others, plus many slightly more traditional options. These include vitamin C infusion, bio-brightening, microdermabrasion detox, and collagen treatment procedures, to name just four.

Artmattan Films Acquires "Black Mexicans" / "Le Negrada"

Artmattan Films Acquires BLACK MEXICANS (La Negrada)

Director Jorge Perez Solano is the first to highlight the lives of Afro-Mexicans living in Oaxaca

Juana and Magdalena share Neri’s love, they both know that this situation is hurting them.

Critically acclaimed drama Black Mexicans / La Negrada by Jorge Pérez has recently been acquired by Artmattan Productions!

La Negrada” examines another overlooked sector of Mexico’s populace, its Afro-Americans, descendants of slaves brought to Mexico – the first such film in Mexico.”

— Variety.com

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES , September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “'La Negrada'”, by director Jorge Perez Solano, has been a big deal since its release in Mexico on August 10th. The film that recently premiered in Mexico City has made history as Mexico’s first feature film with an all-Black cast." ~ Africanews.com

"Black Mexicans" / "La Negrada" is the first Mexican feature film about the Afro-Mexican community, filmed entirely with people from different towns around the Costa Chica in Oaxaca.

Among the black people in the Costa Chica in Oaxaca, it is socially accepted that a man lives with more than one woman. Juana and Magdalena share Neri’s love, they both know that this situation is hurting them. Juana will have to die in order to show Magdalena a new path for her life.

"The social realist drama marks Pérez Solano’s third feature, after a diptych, 2009’s “Spiral” and 2014’s “La Tirisia” (“Perpetual Sadness”) both of which examined in a naturalistic style the fate of those left behind by men’s immigration to the U.S.
"La Negrada” examines another overlooked sector of Mexico’s populace, its Afro-Americans, descendants of slaves brought to Mexico – the first such film in Mexico." ~Variety.com

In Mexico, the afro communities represents only 1% of the total population. They have never been recognized as an ethnic group, nation or culture, suffering discrimination as an outcast group. LA NEGRADA is the first Mexican fiction movie filmed entirely in one of those black communities, with local people, no professional actors. An effort to give them voice and make them visible.

"The trailer highlights the daily lives of Afro-Mexicans and Costa Chica's beautiful surroundings through its stunning cinematography," Antoinette Isama, OkayAfrica

USPTO Director Andrei Iancu to Speak on Improving IP Understanding at the IP Awareness Summit in NYC, Nov. 29

Patent & trademark head will speak to IPAS 2018 attendees at Columbia University’s School of Journalism – Registration is now open

The focus for discussion and IP policy must be on the positive. We must create a new narrative that defines the patent system by the brilliance of inventors and the benefits they bring to society.”

— Andrei Iancu, USPTO Director

NEW YORK, NY, USA, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding (CIPU) announced today that that Andrei Iancu, the United States Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), has accepted its invitation to speak at the Intellectual Property Awareness Summit.

The Summit will take place at Columbia University’s famed Pulitzer Hall in New York on November 29 in conjunction with Columbia Technology Ventures. Registration is now open.

Director Iancu will touch upon the benefits of the U.S. IP system and how they can be made clearer to more audiences.

“Today, our patent system is at a crossroads. For more than just a few years, our system has been pushed and pulled, poked and prodded,” he told a U.S. Chamber of Commerce audience earlier in the year… “The focus for discussion, and the focus for IP policy, must be on the positive. We must create a new narrative that defines the patent system by the brilliance of inventors, the excitement of invention, and the incredible benefits they bring to society. And it is these benefits that must drive our patent policies.”

Confusion about the purpose, use and criteria of inventions, authored works and designs, and their rights, has led to widespread IP theft on the part of both individuals and businesses. Uncertainty inhibits innovation and competition, increases frustration and discourages investment. IPAS 2018 will examine ways to improve audiences’ basic IP awareness and understanding.

"Director Iancu has shown leadership on important IP issues like patentability and uncertainty," said Brian Hinman, Chief Innovation Officer at Aon IP Solutions, former Chief IP Officer at Philips and a member of the CIPU board of directors. "Now is the time to confront the challenges faced by IP rights and holders, including the need to raise awareness about the role they play in innovation and competition."

Registration is now open for the second annual Intellectual Property Awareness Summit – IP Literacy in a Digital World. The Summit will examine the impact of information and speed on how intellectual property is seen and often taken for granted, as well as ways to address it through education and the media.

Prior to taking the position with the USPTO, Director Iancu was the managing partner of Irell & Manella. His legal practice focused on intellectual property litigation. He has taught patent law at the University of California, Los Angeles, which is his alma mater. As an attorney, Director Iancu has appeared in front of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the United States International Trade Commission, U.S. district courts, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He began his career as an engineer at Hughes Aircraft Company.

In addition to Director Iancu’s presentation, featured IPAS 2018 speakers include Manny Schecter, Chief Patent Counsel of IBM, and a range of IP thought-leaders, educators and global IP organizations. Panel topics will include:

– IP LITERACY – WHAT IS IT? WHY SHOULD WE CARE?
– WHAT AUDIENCES NEED TO KNOW: IDENTIFYING IP ESSENTIALS
– LUNCH/AUDIENCE WORKSHOPS
A. Educators (B-schools, undergraduate, K-12)
B. Creators (inventors, authors, entrepreneurs, managers)
C. The Public (government, associations, parents, media)
– THE CURRENT STATE OF IP EDUCATION: US, EUROPE & ASIA
– REDUCING RHETORIC: STRATEGIES FOR DISPELLING IP MYTHS

To view the IPAS 2018 program and event website, visit www.ipawarenesssummit.com. Watch for updates — to register, go here.

For the current full current list of IPAS 2018 participants and partners, please visit this page.

IPAS 2018 will draw participants and panelists from the U.S., Europe and Asia, and provide opportunities to network and share ideas. Discussions will include best ways to address the widespread confusion over IP rights, and the growing acceptance of IP theft. Participants can expect to network and explore the role of government, the media, and educators in making IP rights more intelligible, and the impact of failing to.

Among those who will attend IPAS 2018 are IP holders, executives, educators, inventors, service providers, investors, lawyers and IP organizations. Tickets are limited.

An Ode to the Leaders Attending the UN Conference.

Identify with the mind and with it heal the brain.

Emotional intelligence comes from emotional health.

Identify with the mind and with it heal the brain.

Use the Brain and Mind to Improve Each Other.

Brain education is about actualizing your full emotional health power.

Wisdom education is brain cleaning education.

The mind is a fragrance of the brain. To change minds the brains have to be healed. Our leaders keep trying to change minds and so nothing changes.

As long as the brain and mind are lumped together as just the mind, not much will change. We need to create a separate subject of brain education and a new profession of brain healers.”

— Sajid Khan

NEW YORK CITY., NY, USA, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

I have figured out the
Fundamental problem
With the world
And have tried to get it across
But our leaders are caught
In their own spin.

So they all try
To make life better
They want others to duplicate
And support the effectively successful
Work they are doing.

They all talk about changing the mindset
It is very clear that
They all lump together
The brain and mind as just the mind.

The reality is
The brain and mind
Are two separate entities
In fact the mind
Is a fragrance of the brain.

The mind is a reflection of the brain
And our experts and leaders
Keep trying to change the reflection
The results are obvious
Society is as messed up as ever.

To improve a fragrance
The source of the fragrance has to improve
To improve the mind
The brain has to heal.

And in the right order of things
The brain is like a limb of the mind
So it is not about changing the mindset
It is all about changing the brainset.

But the problem is
Most brains out there is no limb
Under the full control of the mind
Instead, it is the brain controlling the mind.

The cream of the cream
Of world-changing leaders
All trying to further the cause
Of making the world better
By sharing their own excellent successes.

As long as they keep trying
To change the mindset
And leave the emotionally
Challenged brainset alone
Not much will change.

They definitely equip the world
With new world improving knowledge
They make a great difference
By improving the mind's knowledge
But for the vast majority
Out there in the real world
It is the emotional baggage
In the brain that needs to be cleaned.

And all those leaders who are at war
They think their minds are controlling their world
Their own emotionally challenged brain is controlling them.

It is less about changing the mindset
It is all about changing the brainset!
Unfortunately, our leaders are busy
Trying to change the mindset
When it is the Brainset
That needs changing.

It is less about changing the mindset
It is all about changing the brainset!
