TOURO COLLEGE, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Shema Kolainu workshop series on November 19th, 2019 was presented by Dr. Stephen Shore, a Clinical Assistant Professor at Adelphi University in New York and a member of the ICARE4Autism Advisory Committee. He gave participants an inside view on recognizing and supporting individuals with sensory issues. Dr. Shore’s workshop focused on the variation of perception of sensory stimuli that we all experience. More specifically, how individuals with autism can experience discomfort from sensory overload, and how information received may not be usable. During this workshop participants were able to experience what sensory overload may feel like as well as learning how to develop and implement accommodations to help alleviate sensory issues caused by sensory overload and sensory seeking behaviors.

This autism workshop was one of many sponsored by Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices, a model school, and center for children with autism and related developmental disorders. The workshop was a great success with over 100 participants including parents, specialists, and service providers. The workshop included group interactions, videos, and simulations to help participants better understand sensory differences.

Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices was founded by Dr. Joshua Weinstein and offers a broad spectrum of evidence-based education and therapeutic programs to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and related disabilities in a warm and nurturing environment. Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices is a nonpublic, nonprofit, nondenominational, multi-cultural school, which provides quality treatment, education, professional training and mentoring.

Suri Gruen, Program Director and Gili Rechany, Educational Director coordinated the workshop. The New York City Council Autism Initiative provided necessary funds for this workshop.

International women's rights organization Equality Now honors bestselling author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie for her contribution to advancing gender equality.

Sometimes it can feel very lonely trying to prove that sexism exists, that we haven’t achieved basic equality for women around the world. Tonight is an oomph that shows me that it truly matters.”

— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, November 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Best selling Nigerian author and feminist icon Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was honoured last night in New York City at the annual "Make Equality a Reality" gala, hosted by international women’s rights organization Equality Now.

Each year, Equality Now honours individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of gender equality.

Regardless of race, age, gender, or nationality Adichie persuasively argues that dismantling gender oppression through feminism is for everyone.

While accepting the honor, Adichie said in her speech at the gala: “I was a feminist long before I knew what the word meant. Not because I read books but because I observed the world around me and saw how women were treated.”

“Sometimes it can feel very lonely trying to prove that sexism exists, that we haven’t achieved basic equality for women around the world. Tonight is an oomph that shows me that it truly matters.”

“I’m going to remember this night when people tell me to shut up. I’m not going to shut the f*ck up!”

In selecting this year’s honoree, Executive Director of Equality Now, Yasmeen Hassan, cited Adichie's commitment to highlighting the diversity of the African experience and dispelling the tired Western trope of the poor African in need of rescuing.

“In creating nuanced, complex, and resilient female characters, Chimamanda has encouraged a more inclusive and representational global feminism,” Hassaan explained.

Previous honourees have included actor and activist Jane Fonda, bestselling author of The Handmaids Tale and The Testaments, Margaret Atwood; and Jaha Dukureah, renowned anti-FGM activist and survivor. Leading feminist and noted author Gloria Steinman has also been awarded and sits on Equality Now’s advisory board.

About Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:

Through her storytelling, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has used the power of words to elevate the injustices faced by women and girls throughout the world. Connecting with millions of readers globally, her books have been translated into over thirty languages.

Adichie's 2009 TED Talk, The Danger of A Single Story, which explores what happens when complex human beings and situations are reduced to a single stereotyped narrative, is one of the most watched TED talks of all time.

In addition, her 2012 TED Talk, We Should All Be Feminists, spurred a global conversation about feminism and was turned into a celebrated book.

About Equality Now:

Equality Now is an international human rights organization that works to protect and promote the rights of women and girls around the world by combining grassroots activism with international, regional and national legal advocacy. Our international network of lawyers, activists, and supporters achieve legal and systemic change by holding governments responsible for enacting and enforcing laws and policies that end legal inequality, sex trafficking, sexual violence, and harmful practices such as female genital mutilation and child “marriage”.

Stephen Odzer Shares Current Trends in the Distribution Business

Tvzi Odzer Henderson

HENDERSON, NV, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With over 30 years of distribution business experience, Stephen Odzer is the current CEO and founder of YBT Industries of Henderson, NV. Instead of getting ready for retirement, Stephen Odzer decided to launch a new company. It has been a long road for Stephen Odzer since he started his first company. “I started my first company at age 18 out of my parents’ basement. I went to Yeshiva of Flatbush High School and then to the Brooklyn College Scholars program,” he says. Building a company from the ground up gave Stephen Odzer the skills to succeed in the industry. In 2000, he was named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in the area of distribution. With such a robust portfolio, he has seen many trends in the distribution industry come and go.

Stephen Odzer acknowledges that with the rise of internet shopping, distributors now face shorter delivery windows. Consumers now expect to receive their products within only a few days, which has forced distributors to change the way they handle shipping. To not lose customers and meet their expectations, businesses are expecting shorter delivery windows.

With the rise of technology, many distribution companies need to look at software that will help them improve productivity. Stephen Odzer points out that many distribution companies see the value of investing in transport management software (TMS). TMS can not only help distributors increase productivity, but it can also help them cut down costs.

Stephen Odzer also points out that eCommerce and TMS will also change the way distributors conduct business. With the merging of both technologies, customers will have more tools to decide which carriers and systems they utilize. This will also give them the opportunity to demand more transparency with each of their orders. They will be able to track their order from the moment the distributor receives it, to the moment someone buys the product. Customers will also get notifications every step of the way.

Stephen Odzer enjoys spending his free time with his seven children and nine grandchildren. When he’s not chasing after his grandchildren, he’s cheering on the New York Yankees or the Las Vegas Golden Knights. Stephen Odzer and his family also like to give back to the community. They support causes such as both Jewish and non-Jewish causes, the AHRC, and Bris Avrohom, a large non-profit that helps Jewish immigrants from Russia integrate into life in the U.S.

Martin Lawrence Galleries, Soho exhibition of spectacular work by Contemporary Japanese Artist, Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami, We Came to the Field of Flowers Through Anywhere Door (Dokodemo Door)!, hand-signed silkscreen

Takashi Murakami, Jellyfish Eyes-Black 5, hand-signed offset lithograph on paper

Takashi Murakami, Enso/ Memento Mori Red on Blue, hand-signed offset lithograph on paper

MLG’s exhibition will feature a selection from over 125 individual titles, silkscreens, prints, and paintings.

My aesthetic sense was formed at a young age by what surrounded me: the narrow residential spaces of Japan and the mental escapes from those spaces that took the forms of manga and anime.”

— Takashi Murakami

NEW YORK, NY, USA, November 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When I manage to snatch the tail of an idea, I must then transport a fragment of it to a completely different region of my brain . . . Once a deadline is met, that region can relax, so I graft the new idea onto that relaxed region in order to nurture and grow it. This is the process I endlessly repeat, and as such, I can never see the end of it; each day of unease is followed by another, and only for a moment when a project is complete do I get to experience a modicum of liberation. As a distant result of such a thankless, humorless repetition, interesting works get made.
Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami's colorful paintings reveal the consistent, universal themes that have guided the artist's work. Each work of art reflects his craft and insightful engagement with popular culture, folklore, and pop art style, all mixed with traditional Japanese culture. One of today's most imaginative artists, Murakami is universally recognized for both his fine art and commercial output — including collaborations with hip-hop stars Kanye West and Pharrell Williams, as well as designs for the fashion and beauty industry with Louis Vuitton, Issey Miyake, and Shu Uemura.

Murakami was influenced by animated films (anime), comic books (manga), and global branding, and creates and adapts his recognizable characters into a style that he has dubbed "Superflat"-a tribute to the two-dimension style of classic Japanese cartoons. The theory posits that there is a legacy of flat, 2-dimensional imagery from Japanese Art history in manga and anime.

In 2002 and 2017 in Japan, Murakami participated in The Doraemon Exhibitions, group shows of contemporary artworks inspired by the famous manga character, a time-traveling catlike robot who befriends a young boy named Nobita Nobi. Mr. Fujio and Doraemon are in the Field of Flowers is included in the exhibition. New paintings are depicting Mr. Fujio and Doraemon waving in front of the Anywhere Door, a device that allows its user to teleport and surrounded by multicolored smiling flowers. Granting entry through We Came to the Field of Flowers Through Anywhere Door Anywhere Door, Doraemon and Nobita are whimsical parallels to a pair of mythical animals that often guard the entrances of Buddhist temples.

With the Enso paintings, Memento Mori Red on Blue, Murakami, moreover, harks back to Japanese tradition. As a motif, the Enso (literally "circle") symbolizes emptiness, unity, and infinity in Zen Buddhism.

Murakami's "eye" motif – Jellyfish Eyes – Black 5 ranks with DOB, flowers, and mushrooms as one his most repeated. In Japanese mythology, there is a character known as "Hyakume" (Hundred Eyes), who is a guardian of shrines. Hyakume only comes out at night because the sun is too bright for him. Like the otoroshi, he guards sanctuaries against thieves. When he met a thief, one of his eyes would leave his body and endlessly pursue the thief until it made contact and branded the transgressor. After that, the thief always had the eye as a mark that he was a thief. Variation after variation of "superflat" cartoon eyes, separated from their living bodies (or from Hyakume?) parade through Murakami's art, perhaps continually assessing the viewer as "thief" or "not-thief"?

Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, Takashi Murakami attended the Tokyo University of Arts, where he acquired the drafting skills necessary to become an animator, but eventually majored in Nihonga, the 'traditional style of Japanese painting that incorporates traditional artistic conventions, techniques, and subjects. In 1994, Murakami received a fellowship from the Asian Cultural Council and spent a year in the PS1 International Studio Program in New York City. During his stay, he was exposed to and highly inspired by Western contemporary artists and the art movement of Simulationism, which engages in a play of relationships between cells, icons, and the increasing geometricization of the social space in the world in which we live.

"I am not a political artist, and my target is children, I found my market, my sweet spot, Okay, this is my zone — for the kids "-, Takashi Murakami.

Murakami works have been exhibited in over 82 museums around the globe including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, Japan Society, New York, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, New York, Palace of Versailles, Versailles, France, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow and the Fort Worth Museum of Art. Most recently, his first retrospective was installed at the Vancouver Art Gallery in Canada.

Takashi Murakami is one of the family of superb 20th and 21st century artists, such as Warhol, Haring, Chagall, Picasso and Miró that MLG proudly offers at their fine art galleries located in nine cities including New York, New Orleans, Maui, La Jolla, Costa Mesa, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, and Las Vegas.

Iconic Tiffany Studios Glass Lamps and Important South Asian Modernist Painters Headline Michaan’s December 7 Gallery Auction

Since its inception Michaan’s Auctions has been a premier resource for international collectors of Tiffany Studios glass. December brings the sale of the lustrous Tiffany Studios dragonfly lamp #1495-29, an outstanding example of Tiffany’s genius. The lamp is composed of a 20-inch dragonfly cone shade with strong coloration ranging from mottled blue-purples to beautiful greenish-blues, atop a rare bronze ‘twisted vine’ base with a striking green and brown patina. The shade is unusual in that all of the Tiffany glass cabochon ‘jewels’ are plated with an extra layer of glass on the interior, deepening the coloration. Estimated at $75,000-$95,000, the Tiffany Studios dragonfly lamp is accompanied by an original bill of sale dating to October 21, 1949_. The lamp has been in the same family since its purchase back then.

Also among the superb pieces offered in December is a ‘curtain border’ glass and bronze hanging lamp, Tiffany Studios #1615-21. In this iconic design, one can easily perceive the influence of ancient and classical art forms on Louis Comfort Tiffany's innovations in glass. The

magnificent shade is a mosaic of rich green-ocher-yellow colors illuminated by six lights. Circa 1910, the ‘curtain border’ Tiffany Studios hanging lamp is estimated at $40,000-$60,000.

Other period lighting of note in this auction: a fine French Art Deco chandelier of iron and glass designed by Edgar Brandt for Daum. Brandt’s collaboration with Daum produced light fixtures of grandeur and loveliness. Estimated at $25,000-$35,000, the Daum and Brandt Art Deco chandelier is one of many fine decorative furnishings that await Michaan’s December bidders. Another handsome lamp is by Duffner and Kimberly, New York circa 1910. Their water lily table lamp, offered at $3,000-$5,000, has been in the same family for decades. The featured water lily motif in the leaded slag glass shade is repeated in the lamp’s bronze base.

Fine silver draws many bidders to each of Michaan’s monthly auctions. In December a leading highlight is the 19th century sterling elephant head bowl by Tiffany & Co., one of several ‘elephant head’ articles in the Tiffany & Co. archives. The design of this footed centerpiece bowl, resplendent with repoussé decoration, is attributed to Eugene Soligny, whose works in fine silver are found in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago. On two sides of the spectacular bowl are the noble heads of elephants with trunks extended; estimated at $30,000-$45,000. The December auction also features fine period furniture and a rosewood grand piano in the Neoclassical style by Collard & Collard (late 19th Century, $10,000-$15,000).

Fine jewelry anchors Michaan’s Auctions year-round and holds special sway in December, the season of giving. Highlights of the December 7Gallery Auction include many lovely pieces from the estate of Sylvia Blumenfeld, a distinguished collection also featured in the Winter Fine Sale on December 6. Sylvia Blumenfeld (1921-2018) was a highly accomplished woman of style whose education and world travels informed her discerning taste in fine art and jewelry. Jewels from her estate include the collection of amber, citrine and bronze jewelry items by Stephen Dweck ($400-$600) and the David Yurman amethyst, sterling and 14k yellow gold jewelry suite ($500-$700). Unique pieces include the bug on leaf brooch of cultured pearls, coral, nephrite jade and 14k yellow gold ($300-$500). A collection of enamel jewelry items by Hermès is offered at $400-$600 and a vintage pink Chanel jewelry suite is estimated at $300-$500. The multi-stone, vermeil jewelry suite ($400-$600) is by designer Kai-Yin Lo, noted for creating modern, original pieces inspired by her Chinese cultural heritage.

December’s Gallery Auction also features period jewelry such as the French Art Deco earrings of jadeite jade, enamel and 18k yellow gold ($500-$700). Beautiful rings are plentiful, centering diamonds, sapphires and emeralds. Fine timepieces include the French retro sapphire, 18k gold wristwatch with leather band ($400-$600). For the generous giver there are luxury items such

as the 14k yellow gold mesh purse ($3,500-$4,000). Jewelry styles of dazzling diversity are offered, with many great finds and excellent values among them.

Wide variety and fine quality are also hallmarks of Michaan’s monthly auctions of fine art. American art in the December Gallery Auction includes the oil painting “Fishing at Sunset” ($3,000-$5,000) by the renowned wildlife artist and illustrator Lynn Bogue Hunt (1878-1960). Another wonderful American painting is “Queen Mary ’36” ($1,200-$1,800) by Cecil Crosley Bell (1906-1970), known for his dynamic paintings of New York City and other American places, bustling with color and movement. New York’s neon glow against the night sky animates Leroy Neiman's vibrant serigraph, “Lights of Broadway” ($1,500-$2,500). California landscapes include works by Hanson Puthuff and California Impressionist William Ritschel. “Crashing Waves,” by early California artist Roi Clarkson Colman (1884-1995), is offered at $1,500$2,000.

A highlight in December is “Flower Garden” by William Chadwick (1879-1962), whose works have sold well at Michaan’s this year. Chadwick traveled widely in the United States, painting scenes of city and country life with an emphasis on capturing the effects of natural light. Chadwick’s contemporary Alson Skinner Clark (1876-1949) is also featured. Clark’s 1938 watercolor, “Flower Field,” is estimated at $1,200-$1,800. Two mosaics by Benjamino Bufano, each estimated at $1,000-$2,000, are also among the American works. The Italian-born Bufano created delightful modernist sculptures, including many for public spaces in San Francisco.

A special highlight of the December Gallery Auction is a selection of exciting works by venerated South Asian modern artists. The watercolor “Village Scene” ($5,000-$7,000) is by Sayed Haider Raza (1922-2016) who lived and worked in France as well as his native India. Raza, who was a visiting lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley in the early 1960s, was a cofounder of the Bombay Progressive Artists’ Group. This movement sought to cultivate a uniquely Indian artistic vision, turning away from Western influences and linking modern artistic works to Indian roots and cultural themes. The ink and graphite drawing “Seated Woman” ($2,000-$4,000) is by Pakistani artist Abdur Rahman Chughtai (1894-1975), widely considered the foremost painter of the region. Chughtai was awarded an honorary title by the British Empire in India, but he rejected the colonial aesthetic and drew on Islamic traditions and the world of the Mughals for inspiration. The December auction includes two untitled pastels on paper by Ram Kumar (1924-2018), a leading Indian abstract painter also associated with the Bombay Progressives. Especially noteworthy is “Mother With Dove” by M. F. Husain, a groundbreaking Indian painter of international acclaim. Husain (1915-2011), also a filmmaker, formed part of the Bombay avant-garde in the 1940s. His brightly colored figurative paintings with Cubist tendencies are singular in style and sometimes controversial in subject. “Mother With

Dove” ($10,000-$15,000) is a large painting suggestive of themes interwoven throughout Husain’s body of work: the dove of Peace, Mother India, Mother Teresa. Paintings by M.F. Husain can be found in the collections of LACMA, the National Gallery of Modern Art in Mumbai, and the National Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar among others.

Asian art presented by specialist Annie Zeng in the December 7 Gallery Auction features exemplary pieces. From a distinguished San Francisco collection, the 5th Century Chinese gilt bronze Buddhist altarpiece is estimated at $20,000-$30,000. This important Northern Wei Dynasty artifact features numerous figures of Buddha, a pair of lions and abundant calligraphic inscription. From the same period, the rare Chinese bronze standing figure of Shakyamuni is offered at $15,000-$25,000. In this imposing work, a lotus pedestal supports the beautifully detailed figure of the monk on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.

Among the fine textiles is the 19th Century Taoist priest’s dragon robe of imperial yellow silk ($15,000-$20,000). Always highly sought by collectors, the dragon robe is embroidered with every motif and symbol central to Taoism, such that it truly represents the cosmos. Apart from its deep symbolic value, the dragon robe is also a cultural artifact of extraordinary beauty decorated with flora and fauna, clouds and planets, pagodas and treasure emblems in an astonishing range of colors including metallic gold-wrapped threads.

Michaan’s December highlights also include a lingbi scholar’s rock with fitted base. As always there is a selection of fine Chinese porcelains, many styles and periods. One lovely example is the Longquan celadon bottle vase featuring a rich plum green glaze ($1,000-$1,500).

Every building has a distinctive acoustic character which makes it suitable for certain types of applications. A hall that is designed for theatrical applications or orchestral music may not be suitable for other activities. The variety of sounds in a building is restricted due to the acoustics. Therefore, acoustic control system is increasingly used to change the acoustics of a room by adding sound reflectors to the natural ones. The system also uses advanced digital processing to ensure that the sound produced is natural to the listeners.

With the installation of ACS, halls and other places become multipurpose venues and can be used for organizing different types of shows and events for a wide range of audiences. This has also increased the demand for acoustic control system in different countries across the globe. This report tells about the current market trends, future growth prospects, market drivers, restraints, key regions, key players, revenue, market share, opportunities, threats, and more to help key players and manufacturers plan their future strategies accordingly.
