Designer Born in the Korean Army

Joseph C. Furniture presents its latest collection at Cargo Project Gallery

RIDGEWOOD, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2019 / — “I was a DMZ policeman for 2 years during the mandatory Korean military service where I worked as a Guard Post, and I had lots of time to think looking at nature on the other side of the fence.” A long time has passed since Joseph Chun started imagining his career as a product designer while contemplating the immensity of the Korean landscape, and he could never have believed what a great one he would become. He chose furniture, among other products of design, because as he says, “It is something we all have to interact and feel with own our body on a daily basis yet has infinite possibilities of improvement.”

He draws his inspirations from his rich journey growing up in different cultures. Born in Daegu, North Gyeongsang Province of South Korea, his life journey took him from Seoul to Wisconsin, then to North Carolina and back to Korea to complete his Army service, finally landing in New York City. He is now based in Red Hook, Brooklyn where he works and lives.

“I feel my furniture pieces are a reflection of my experiences. I use wood because it is in itself a material with a story. None of the grain patterns are the same and that makes each piece have an original fingerprint that is just impossible to replicate. Also, wood, unlike metal, plastic or stone, is a material closer to our body temperature that makes it the material that agrees and comforts our bodies.”

Joseph is presenting his most recent collection at Cargo Project Gallery, a new art space operating on the border of the trendy art neighborhood of Bushwick and Ridgewood in New York City. “We opened Cargo Project Gallery with the idea of bringing underexposed international artists and creatives to New York,” says Kika Espejo, the founder and director. “We fell in love with Joseph’s story and his work. He creates pieces of furniture that bring memories of a past you have not lived, as a kind of time travel. His pieces make you reminisce cultures you have never had the opportunity to experience but that come to your senses through his work.”

The exhibition, that will open Wednesday, July 3rd, would be a one-night show which is going to be the Cargo Project Gallery regular format. “We have a program that will present a wide range of disciplines for one-night exhibitions and events, from censored Cuban photography-based artists to socially engaged illustrators from Iran, and a controversial film projection of 9/11 comedy from Spain,” Kika says. “We are really excited to start our program with Joseph’s show and we hope it will be well received by the Bushwick/Ridgewood community."

Simon Saved. One Man’s Relentless Legal & PR Efforts Finally Frees His Dog Sent To “Death Row” By The Government

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 28, 2019 / — A Guilford, Connecticut dog (Simon) who has been in animal control lockup for nearly two years and was set to be euthanized has been released. This comes after prolonged legal and public relations efforts which saw frequent protests outside local government offices.

Dr. David Young, who adopted Simon in 2011, said Simon was seized by Guilford Animal Control after biting a boy (who was trespassing in his backyard) in 2017. Simon was set to be euthanized however, Young refused to accept the grim fate.

“Simon is a huge part of my family and he is the embodiment of unconditional love. I promised Simon from day one that I would never stop fighting for him.” Said Dr. David Young. “Knowing that Simon is finally free is an incredible feeling.”

Young hired both a lawyer and New York based public relations firm, Goldman McCormick. The firm wasted no time in getting Simon’s story to the local community and national media. Young frequently appeared on television and radio programs pleading Simon’s case. There were protests, fundraisers, rallies, prayer circles, and even a large billboard (which cost thousands of dollars) erected on interstate 95 in East Haven saying: "Help Save Simon & Your Beloved Dogs From Guilford Politicians."

“Each week the pro-Simon protests grew larger in size and pretty soon I was getting support letters from people across the country. As public outcry about Simon’s plight grew and pressure on local officials continued to mount, we sensed that it would only be a matter of time before Simon was free. We were right.” Said Young.

Young said his attorney and the town’s attorney came to an agreement that would allow Simon to be released if he was sent out of state. Simon’s new home is on a farm Michigan and David says he’ll be visiting frequently.

“Simon and I are as inseparable as peanut butter and jelly. I don’t think either of us can imagine life without the other. This was a hard fought battle and it was worth every penny.” Said Young.

Sonoro on pathway to 1 million Oz Gold in Mexico, and heap-leach oxide open pit operation

Central Zones of Sonoro’s Cerro Caliche Gold Project

Sonoro Metals Corp. appears ideal for investors seeking exposure to precious metals as SMO.V rapidly builds intrinsic value with near-term production potential.

Sonoro Metals Corp. (TSX:SMO)

SMO.V currently has a market cap of ~C$7 million (only ~35 million shares outstanding trading at ~$0.19/share, ~44.6M fully diluted), minuscule compared to the gold ounces it is building.”

— Mining MarketWatch Journal

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, June 28, 2019 / — Sonoro Metals Corp. (TSX-V: SMO) (US Listing: SMOFF) (Frankfurt: 23SP) is aiming to release a first-pass/maiden resource this Summer-2019 on its flagship Cerro Caliche Gold Project in Sonora State Mexico, located 3 hrs north of Hermosillo, 3 hrs south of Tucson, AZ USA, along the prolific Sonora-Mojave Megashear, between Agnico Eagle and GoldGroup's open pit mines. The coming maiden resource (only weeks away) is expected to have both Inferred and Indicated categories, and be meaningful enough to attract market attention. The Company is already planning an aggressive ~7,000 m 'Phase 3' drill program with the goal of establishing a resource exceeding 1,000,000 oz of gold before mid-2020. The management team is considering a number of different scenarios and interesting offers, including a non-recourse gold-backed debt financing arrangement for an open-pit heap leach pilot plant operation to generate income, cash flow the bigger picture, and minimize dilution. Investors can look forward to multiple news catalysts playing out over the next few months as the Cerro Caliche Gold Project advances.

Sonoro is the subject of a Mining MarketWatch Journal review, full copy of the review may be viewed at online.

Sonoro Metals Corp.'s management team is highly-accomplished, and its geological team is dialed-in on the gold at Cerro Caliche. Melvin Hendrick, P.Geo is Sonoro's V.P. of Exploration, he has nearly half a century of experience under his belt, including Chief Geologist for Phelps Dodge, and VP Exploration for Pediment Gold Corp., bought by Argonaut in 2011, he and his team have an impressive track record in mineral discovery.

Anyone that has been around the resource sector for a while will know the reputation of John Darch (Sonoro's Chairman & Director), and Kenneth MacLeod (President, CEO, & Director);

John Darch headed Asia Pacific which identified, explored and developed one of the world’s largest potash deposits located in Thailand (and lowest cost too), he also headed Crew Development Corp. in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s until it was taken over (from pennies to $4+/share). The Sonoro strategy is the same as Crew; (a) secure revenue, (b) secure development properties, and (c) new exploration. John Darch was also heavily involved with Botswana Diamondfields whose stock exceeded $6/share, and Nevada Goldfields ($8+/share).

Ken MacLeod is well know as a financier over the last 35 years in the oil, gas, mining, and energy sectors. The last big project he worked on was Western GeoPower Corp. in California, that company was bought-out, he then set up a company to advance renewable energy projects in the Philippines that included a 600 MW dam, and that company was sold to a subsidiary of San Miguel Corporation in 2014. Ken MacLeod now has his focus on adding shareholder value in Sonoro Metals Corp.

Sonoro’s Operations Manager, Jorge Diaz, has a long history as both a mining and metallurgical engineer. Jorge is well known for leading the development, construction and operation of numerous major mines throughout northern Mexico. Similar to his leadership in the successful development of giant mines like Alamos Gold’s Mulatos mine and Argonaut Gold’s La Colorada mine, Jorge is leading the development of Sonoro's Cerro Caliche pilot operation. Jorge’s experience in building mines adds to Sonoro’s confidence that Cerro Caliche has the potential to relatively quickly become a significant cash-flowing asset for Sonoro.

Rapidly building bulk tonnage gold ounces in a proven jurisdiction:
Sonora State is a low-risk mining-friendly jurisdiction with exceptional infrastructure, responsible for 24% of Mexico's gold output. The neighboring landscape surrounding SMO.V's Cerro Caliche Gold Project is dotted with numerous low-grade bulk tonnage open pit mines (highly-profitable low opex operations with many currently operating in the mid-USD$700/oz to mid-USD$800/oz gold range). These are essentially giant earth-moving projects.

Near-term heap-leachable oxide deposit open pit gold mining scenario developing at SMO.V's Cerro Caliche Gold Project:
SMO.V's Cerro Caliche Gold Project is advanced-stage drilling-wise, in total (current and historical to date) that is more than 20,000 m drilling. Sonoro Metals has two drill programs (~10,000 m; ~100 holes and ~6,000 samples) under its belt now, plus there were 3 past operators on the property (the last two operators ran out of money) and SMO.V is fortunate to have inherited 43-101 compliant data on 116 holes and ~3,600 samples (~$3 million worth in exploration) from them.

Southeast-Northwest trending vein structures litter the area, with disseminated gold between the gold structures. To date SMO.V has identified 17 mineralized clusters/zones on the Cerro Caliche property. The majority of drilling to date is concentrated on the central zones of Japoneses, Cuervos, and Abejas, and western central zones of Cabeza Blanca, Guadalupe, and El Colorado. The yellow shaded areas in the image above are the more advanced work areas, the Japoneses zone is most advanced with close spacing drill holes and is where the indicated resource is expected in the upcoming first-pass/maiden resource. See the full Mining Journal article for details on the average expected grade.

Much of the mineralization begins at or near the surface. This reality makes it all the more reasonable to anticipate the development of a large tonnage, open pit, oxide deposit, amenable to a heap leaching operation, much like several neighboring mines with similar grades that are in operation in the region.

Large Protest Against Coca-Cola Animal Cruelty Hits Santa Monica Promenade!

large group of protesters pose for group shot

Protesters Ask Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey to Get Real about Inherent Dairy Cruelty!

some people at protest

Protesters say they will continue this global campaign until Coca-Cola ditches dairy.

This woman wept as she described hearing the mother cows bellowing for their babies, who’d been ripped away from them.

mother speaks out

This mother of two said dairy is a violation of everything maternal because mothers and babies are separated!

Hollywood actors, authors, social media influencers, nutritionists and everyday consumers sent a dramatic message to Coca-Cola’ s CEO James Quincey: kick dairy!

In crisis there's opportunity. Coca-Cola can now get out of a dying industry. The next generation is switching to plant-based milk in droves. It's where the smart money is headed! It's cruelty-free.”

— Protester at Santa Monica Demonstration

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 27, 2019 / — Hollywood actors, authors, social media influencers, nutritionists and everyday consumers converged on the Santa Monica Promenade to send a dramatic message to Coca-Cola' s CEO James Quincey: kick dairy to the curb. The explosive undercover investigation by Animal Recovery Mission shows horrific, sadistic abuse of calves and cows – all caught on video – at Coca-Cola/Fairlife's longtime "humane" supplier Fair Oaks Farms.

Demonstrators, wearing cow masks, symbolically spoke up for these voiceless, helpless animals by holding up a dozen plant-based milk cartons and begging CEO Quincey to do the right thing: switch to plant-based milk! Among those speaking: actresses Fia Perera and Simone Reyes, nutritionist Lisa Karlan and New York Times bestselling author/journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell, founder of In Defense of Animals’ President Dr Marilyn Kroplick also spoke, while holding up one of the several lawsuits filed against the companies. Author/activist Brittany Michelson, social media influencers Those Annoying Vegans, 369vegan and longtime activists Patty Shenker, Eder Lopez, Paige Parsons Roache, Kim Delgado-King, Vanessa Marsot, Lindsey Baker, Sarah Segal, Adam Leo and Renee Marinkovich also gave speeches directed at Coke CEO Quincey. Ilana Bollag, John Hays and others, provided support by holding signs.

Protesters displayed the readily-available alternatives to cruelty-filled cow’s milk. Holding cartons of almond, soy, cashew, oat, rice and hemp milk, demonstrators in cow masks respectfully begged CEO Quincey, Coca-Cola North America President Jim Dinkins and Fairlife COO Tim Doelman to discard their willful ignorance and admit the obvious: their stated values of integrity and high animal welfare standards are inherently incompatible with dairy. Simply put, there is no nice way to rip a baby away from his or her mother, much less do that to tens of thousands of calves.

Actor Kenziah Rubens mentioned that “Ocean Eyes” singer Billie Eilish was so revolted by the Fair Oaks videos, she urged her 26 million Instagram followers to go vegan, noting the animals are being “fully tortured.”

As Fairlife and Coca-Cola are hit with another wave of lawsuits over these gut wrenching videos, grassroots protests are spreading across America and even to the United Kingdom! See the events pages below for protests in London, Houston, Connecticut, Portland and New York City! Still more demonstrations are in the planning stages. A wide array of animal welfare and environmental groups, under the banner Coalition Against Cruelty, are demanding Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey immediately take steps to cut his beverage company’s ties with the cruel and environmentally unsustainable dairy industry.

The Coalition Against Cruelty urges Coca-Cola to switch to healthier, more environmentally friendly and cruelty-free plant-based milks. Coca-Cola’s own website states, “Fairlife is a partnership between The Coca-Cola Company and Select Milk Producers Inc. Coca-Cola distributes Fairlife products.” Fairlife has become embroiled in scandal in the wake of Animal Recovery Mission’s explosive undercover investigation of Fairlife Milk’s longtime supplier Fair Oaks Farms. The video shows calves being hit, dragged, shot, sat on, left on dead piles and, in other ways, subjected to nightmarish abuse. All this while Coca-Cola insists, in its written material, its partnership with Fairlife is based on “…exceptional cow care, smart and responsible farming, and sustainable agriculture.”

Demonstrators implore CEO Quincey to consider the reality: the dairy industry is inherently cruel. For humans to drink cow’s milk, cows must be impregnated and – after giving birth – separated from their babies, who would otherwise drink the mother’s milk nature intended for them. This is why the Animal Recovery Mission’s video shows rows upon rows of calves in hutches, alone, away from their mothers. Protesters point out the obvious. The calves become despondent and don’t want to drink the replacement fluid from the rubber nipples. Workers are tasked with getting them to drink it. Frustration ensues, creating an environment ripe for abuse. This is why undercover investigations at dairy farms routinely undercover abuse. No “review” will change the fundamental cruelty of the dairy industry. No arrest of low level workers will get to the heart of the malignancy at the core of this process.

No desperate attempts to blame the messenger will mask the industry’s harsh realities. Indeed, that will only confirm the moral bankruptcy of the industry’s doublespeak, where shock is expressed over dead piles brazenly left out in the open, where people who systematically exploit animals feign heartbreak and blame underlings when exposed. The playbook has become worn and the world is getting wise to it.

Coca-Cola executives have publicly revealed their strategy to premium-ize milk and, thereby, be able to charge a premium. The Coalition Against Cruelty suggests the wiser strategy would be to pivot to the products being increasingly embraced by millennials and Gen Z’ers: plant-based milks. Coca-Cola’s stated corporate vision includes the following: “Be a responsible citizen that makes a difference by helping build and support sustainable communities.” Animal agriculture, which includes dairy, is a leading cause of climate change, responsible for more greenhouses gases than all transportation combined.

In crisis there is opportunity. A pivot to genuine compassion and genuine sustainability would be applauded globally by animal lovers, environmentalists and consumers in general, all of whom were revolted by the video evidence of barbarism and hypocrisy. Climate change is getting worse and will soon create an economic catastrophe that will devastate all businesses including Coca-Cola. We know this switch can be done because one google search shows it is being done. Coalition Against Cruelty’s protests against Coca-Cola will not end until a real change occurs. The time is now.

Any and all of the companies mentioned above are invited on any time. We have reached out to Coca-Cola repeatedly without success.
