To make people’s vision and message come to life, I feel so powerful to be able to do that.”

— Alice Mizrachi

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2019 / — Art heals, art educates, art brings communities together.

Famed muralist and fine artist Alice Mizrachi this month capped a year-long stint as artist in residence with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOH) with the construction of a giant mural on the famed Public School 22 in Staten Island’s Graniteville neighborhood.

The 2,950-square-foot mural was a joint effort of the DOH, the New York City Mural Arts Project, PS 22, Graniteville residents and Venture House, a Staten Island clubhouse that provides a support community for people living with mental illness. Mizrachi facilitated the discussion as the groups chose images that worked to de-stigmatize mental-health and increased awareness around the issue. Alice then sketched a design for the mural, which would go on two adjoining, massive walls at the school.

“We talked about what mental health looks like, what mental wellness looks like, and how over time you can use art as a catalyst for change to become mentally healthy,” Mizrachi said. “We talked about the instances when you feel like you’ve been unhealthy, and how you can become healthy using certain techniques like art. We talked about activities to become healthy and how to create awareness that just because you’re mentally ill doesn’t mean you have to be isolated or unappreciated.

Mizrachi conducted weekly art workshops with mental health peers (people living with the illness), students, their parents, and community members, where they refined the design.

Based on the weekly meetings with the mental health peers, Alice used multiple revisions to refine the concept.
The final design shows puzzle pieces that make up a portrait of a woman on one side and a man on the adjoining wall. “We wanted to focus on how we become a connected community through our different personalities and personas, whether they are healthy or not,” Mizrachi said.

Before it was installed, her design was approved by all member groups. PS 22 is also home to one of the most celebrated children’s choirs in the country.

“The collaborative process is something you have to embrace when you work like this,” Mizrachi said. “I guide participants through the design process while leaving space for what unfolds during the discovery process. It’s delightful to work with people who know very little about creating art but add suggestions based on their intuition and feelings.

“But that’s also the beauty of working with groups,” she said. “You have to be open to what other people bring to the table. I am so versed in arts I might not see something so obvious, something I might overlook because it’s so simple. At times it can be frustrating, but the reward of being able to get different perspectives, that’s just such a blessing.

“To make people’s vision and message come to life, I feel so powerful to be able to do that.”
It was a busy month for Mizrachi, who mounted two other murals in the city; a temporary one in, Williamsburg, Brooklyn as part of a Proactiv skincare campaign with the media company CNX as part of an anti-shaming campaign, and a permanent mural in the courtyard of the Merchants River House Restaurant in Manhattan’s Battery Park neighborhood.
The Merchants mural is “a floral design that creates a calm, peaceful feeling for folks to enjoy while they eat,” Mizrachi said.

Conde Nast and CNX hired Mizrachi after canvassing her website and Instagram page.
Unlike most of her projects, a third company, Colossal Media, was hired to paint the sixty-foot high, twenty-foot wide mural on the wall, located at North 12th and Berry streets, in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood.
Phase 1 of the campaign, called “Paint Positivity; #Because Words Matter,” began online, with the company inviting people to list the hateful words they heard others say about their skin.

Those words were put on the mural first, before participants were invited to help “paint out the hate” in Phase 2.
Days later Mizrachi’s concept, a beautiful, earth Goddess-like woman, covered the space above the hateful words. The unpainted bottom of the mural was left in black and white for participants and community members to fill in.. “They wanted a serene, vibrant woman, someone who felt good about herself,” Mizrachi said.

Finally, the public was invited to paint over the hateful words, leaving only the positive message.
Proactive spokesperson Kendall Jenner was on hand for a photo shoot, as well as local media.

Mizrachi’s busy work schedule promises to continue this fall , with a solo exhibition alongside a women’s group exhibition she curated. That show, titled “EVOLUTION.” It will open on September 26th at The Andrew Freedman Home in the Bronx.
Stay tuned!

Freakshow offstage intimate moments by Almudena Caminero

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2019 / — “When I wanted to visit a place that I could not go to, I painted it. For me, art became like a way of travel, a way to create those places I wanted to be in, but that I couldn’t get to. I recreated those spaces and moved into them. I spent days in front of the canvas living inside this imaginary world with its characters. It was a great way to escape from reality and explore places that I could not visit otherwise because, in some instances, they didn’t even exist.”

Almudena Caminero has always been fascinating by storytelling, and it is there where she has always found her inspiration. “Each painting usually starts with a story, a tale, or a song I hear. As I start working on the painting, I add more and more details. The more time I spent with a painting, the more details I come up with.” And it this way that the Spanish artist creates her “narrative paintings,” pictures that look like they have been taken from a movie strip, where we can feel a particular atmosphere, and a rich background story of the characters she portraits. “I want the spectator to be the one to interpret the details, to put together these pieces, and finish the story.”

Based on her cinematographic approach to art, it is no surprise that Almudena has built a solid career in the film industry. “I started painting when I was very young, and it has always been part of my life. At a point, I couldn’t picture myself in any other field. But life ended up taking me toward production design where I work now recreating the worlds that other people have in their heads.”

But Almudena has never abandoned her painting, and she is now presenting “After the Carnival is Gone,” her latest series 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. “Almudena’s paintings are deeply engaging. She immerses the viewer in these scenes where they encounter vulnerable and intimate moments of the freakshow performance aftermath. Her pictures are like a marriage between the loneliness and isolation we find in Edward Hopper’s characters and spaces and the theatrical and freaky aesthetic of David Lynch.”

The exhibition 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 looking forward to the opening of Almudena’s show and hope to engage our community in these incredible worlds that she creates.”

EOS and the Dawn of the Voter Rewards

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2019 / — One of the most polarizing topics within the EOS community today is voter rewards.

Some fear it will lead to the demise of the network as vote rewarding Block Producers “race to the bottom,” while others applaud the free market reward sharing model as an unstoppable force distributing value back to token holders. The fact is, history has told us voting rewards have not been kind to DPOS chains, but EOS is altogether a different animal. Will history repeat itself as token holders line up to “collect those divs,” or can EOS still find a way to prosper with Block Producers sharing rewards with their voters and running on thinner margins?

Race to the bottom
What does a race to the bottom look like? Pressure begins to build forcing Block Producers to exchange rewards for votes in order to stay relevant. Block Producers compete by increasingly giving away more than the next. Looking for ways to save on operating costs, Block Producers scale back, halting development, and band together to share infrastructure. Decentralization diminishes, upgrades and development screech to a halt, the community becomes frustrated and angry as the token value plummets, and a migration to potentially greener pastures ensues.

Why would the fate of EOS be any different? Network effects are the moat. EOS has real users that companies can harness and build profitable blockchain applications around. The success of these applications creates an even bigger network effect, which in turn brings in even more users. These companies, with profitable applications, can then leverage their profits and become Block Producers. Sound familiar? That’s because it’s already happening. Vote rewarding Block Producers like Newdex care about the success of the network because they have skin in the game in the form of their profitable business built on EOS.

EOS Resources
From a token owners perspective, one of the most dynamic features of EOS is the fact that the network is built around resources. Token resources like CPU and NET have value. Voting is also a token resource that has value. As a token owner, you not only own these resources, but also have the freedom to be compensated for them. By owning EOS, you own your vote, and the right to be rewarded for it.

The Future of EOS
The world is changing at an incredible clip and crypto-tech is at the cutting edge. Businesses are beginning to discover the amazing effects of a reward/profit-sharing model facilitated by smart contract platforms like EOS. As EOS continues to gain more adoption through social media applications like Voice and games like Blankos, Block Producers attempting to get votes with community contributions alone are in big trouble. A new wave of Block Producers will emerge, not dependent on block rewards and better equipped to run on thinner margins. These companies with their deeper-pockets can afford to pay voter rewards and upgrade infrastructure as a way to market and secure the success of their EOS-based applications.

EOS Isn’t Dying Anytime Soon
There are no easy solutions on EOS. Things can be done to break up vote sharing cartels and hold Block Producers to high levels of performance, but the rewarding of token holders for their votes is nearly impossible to stop. What adjustments do we make going forward? Do we grandstand about ethics while vote buying continues to lurk in the shadows? Or do we shine a light on voter rewards and increase visibility by creating competitive and transparent markets around it? I challenge the community to continue to explore and the different options and new ideas through mindful communication with Block Producers and with each other. EOS isn’t dying anytime soon. Unlike other blockchains EOS is agile in its ability to evolve through working governance. There is not another blockchain that scaled and accomplished more in its infancy as it races to the top.

Lenny Rosenberg, Owner of Marmalade Café, Successfully Negotiates Restaurant Flip for “Lenny’s”

The acclaimed businessman has proven that he has not lost the expertise of flipping any restaurant he puts his magic touch on.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2019 / — Lenny Rosenberg, “The Michael Jordan of flipping restaurants” has done it again. With the rising minimum wage increasing to $15.00 and beyond in L.A., and now being passed in the house of representatives nationwide, Lenny has proven that he has not lost the expertise of flipping any restaurant he puts his magic touch on.

Lenny Rosenberg is pleased to announce big news on his name sake restaurant “Lenny’s” on Westwood Blvd in Los Angeles. In 2012, Lenny bought the landmark restaurant called “Juniors”, which was at that location for over 50 years and flipped it into none other than “Lenny’s”.

Now, he’s pleased to announce he is in successful negotiations to flip his name-sake restaurant to a prominent restaurant chain called “Wise and Sons” who will carry on the great tradition that Lenny Rosenberg has instilled on the West Side of L.A. for the last 6 years. He would like to say “thank you to all valued customers that made “Lenny’s” a success for so many years.”

“Lenny’s” will shutter its doors for the last time on Sunday July 28th 2019.

For the last few years, Lenny has teamed with his interior decorator Adesa Swan and the team has been buying & selling restaurants across the country, from New York through the mid-west and now up & down the coast of California. Lenny has made a name in the industry of flipping restaurants with the upmost quality of food & service.

Lenny’s new acquisitions are as follows:

Marmalade Café: Located on the famous Montana Ave in Santa Monica, which is the original location of a seven-store chain of restaurants. What sets Marmalade above the rest is its unique country-style boutique deli atmosphere. Marmalade in Santa Monica provides not only the best food quality but also is well known for its corporate & full service catering it provides throughout the L.A. area.

800 Degrees Westwood Napoleon Pizza: Located on Lindbrook Drive in Westwood, which is also the original location of a 20-store chain of restaurants. What sets 800 Degrees above the rest is their high-quality pizza that the staff flew to Italy to learn how to make.

When someone walks into 800 Degrees they get to create their own pizza at the unique self-service pizza kiosk and then watch the line of cooks while they make the pizza from scratch. It’s a great family environment, great food and of course great Napoleon pizza!

Edison Research’s Lazovick Premiers Moms Audio Usage Research At M2Moms® The Marketing to Moms Conference

M2Moms - Marketing to Moms

Megan Lazovick, VP, Edison Research

Multi-tasking with audio: Edison studies how moms use audio

There is an incredible amount of new, exciting audio content available and more women than ever consuming that content.”

— Megan Lazovick, VP, Edison Research

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2019 / — “Todays moms use audio for self-care and inspiration while balancing all their other tasks and responsibilities. It’s the respite among the chaos of being a mom,” according to Megan Lazovick, VP, Edison Research. Previewing her presentation at M2Moms®-The Marketing to Moms Conference, Lazovick explained, “Our annual Moms and Media study showed that 87% of moms listen to online radio and 56% listen to podcasts. In addition to our audio findings, I’ll also premier new, never-before-seen data from The Research Moms’ national 2019 survey”. M2Moms® will be held October 16 & 17, 2019, at Fordham University’s NYC Lincoln Center campus. It is presented by The Center for Positive Marketing at Fordham and is attended by national and global brand marketing executives to learn how to build more business with women and moms.

Edison, A World Leader in Audio Research
“Luckily for moms,” Lazovick continued, “Listening to audio is something that can be done in tandem with many of the other tasks in their lives. And luckily for marketers, they have access to moms through these media at a time where there is an incredible amount of new, exciting content available and more women than ever consuming that content. For our 2019 Research Moms national survey Edison Research conducted one-on-one interviews with moms about the importance of audio in their lives and how it makes life better. My presentation will share the key takeaways of our findings.”

2019 Highlights:
“Edison’s research is always an important segment for brands at M2Moms®. This year’s conference will also include sessions from Australia’s Katrina McCarter with in-depth look at the moms market in China. Katrina’s latest book The Mother of All Opportunities includes a rich chapter on moms in China. Every year 17 million new babies are born in China versus only 4 million new US babies. It absolutely dwarfs the US market,” according to Nan McCann, M2Moms® producer. “We’ll also be especially focusing on tech with segments on how moms and women are using every screen at their disposal to network, search, get advice, recommend, shop & buy. The tech sessions & media discussions will be presented by Google, Facebook, YouTube, Foursquare, BuzzFeed, JetBlack, Instagram and Edison Research. Additionally, we’ll study how “smart” innovation is changing the home environment. Plus, we’ll examine how intergenerational marketing has become a key component of marketing to moms and women. But, probably our most timely new presentations will look at the very real differences between millennial moms and women and the massive emerging cohort of Gen Z moms and women!”

Creative Engagement & Awards:
“It’s not all work, to stimulate everyone’s creative juices we’re introducing our first ever female targeted startup “Shark Tank” featuring quick elevator pitches with a cash prize to the winner voted by the audience. Plus, in keeping with our annual traditions we’ll present our “Mom First” & “This Woman Means Business” Awards. The “Mom First” Award is given to a mom who saw and successfully pursued a business opportunity she discovered while being a mom. The “This Women Means Business” Award is presented to a proven business leader… an innovator and visionary…who in words and actions recognizes that women can be a transforming economic force in the world today…that for every successful enterprise, women mean business.”

Megan Lazovick is a Vice President at Edison Research. She crafts custom research for thought leadership and content marketing and specializes in the creative presentation of data and insights.

Is Notre-Dame of Paris a Saint or Sinner, Divine or Damned? Read John Griswald's Epic War Novel GIRL FROM RUE SERPENTE



Since the fire at Notre-Dame of Paris, the buzz centered on Our Lady herself. John Griswald's epic romantic novel GIRL FROM RUE SERPENTE presents his opinion.

Is Notre-Dame Cathedral of Paris a Saint or a Sinner, or is she Divine or Damned? John Griswald's epic and erotic novel tries to show the answers people want to know.”

— Stan Zipperman

HONOLULU, HAWAII, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2019 / — Ever since the major fire swept through the iconic 850 year-old Notre-Dame Cathedral of Paris this April, the controversial buzz has centered on the role that Our Lady herself actually may have played. The fire was watched by an estimated 3 billion people out of the 7.7 billion the world population is today. These curious people prayed, watched and waited for the 2 day event in person on the streets, on internet computers and smart phones "live," or got hooked on world-wide news broadcasts on radio and television. It was finally announced that the fire was put out and the church was saved in the nick of time by the brave firefighters from complete destruction. The event was said to be the world's biggest news story of the year thus far.

Catholics and Protestants alike, as well as people of other religious faiths around the world, asked and wondered what the fire really meant in today's rapidly-changing world. Luckily, novelist John Griswald had written the book, the hard-hitting epic and erotic novel GIRL FROM RUE SERPENTE that hoped to deal with the subject of what role does a temple of worship have to prove when unexpected events cause great tragedies. GIRL FROM RUE SERPENTE tackles that question in many different and often difficult and surprising ways by portraying Notre-Dame almost like an actual character in the thrilling fast-moving plot. Some people thought they would go to The Holy Bible to find some answers but Notre-Dame didn't exist during the composition of The Holy Book pages.

Today, one of the best and most powerful choices for seeking answers is the epic war novel where two star-crossed lovers meet their fate — GIRL FROM RUE SERPENTE.

Novelist Griswald has made Notre-Dame a symbolic character in the tragic story of intrigue, suspense and mystery. Three leading characters are involved in the strange contemporary conflict as it unfolds: Aimee Ange, who is a beautiful young French Resistance fighter who wants to become a nun at Notre-Dame Cathedral; Christian Gavin, a handsome American soldier who is part of the Allied Liberation force that ousts the Nazi Occupation from the fabled city of Paris during World War II; and Father Cariot, a manipulative, self-righteous and lusting priest at Notre-Dame. All are seeking some kind of salvation as the war seeks out its victims without warning.

However, Aimee Ange views Notre-Dame Cathedral in Chapter One of GIRL FROM RUE SERPENTE this way: "But there were others who fell under Notre-Dame's spell and spoke of Her as Our Lady of Paris, a living force, a hymn in stone. And so it was with Aimee Ange."

The buzz remains strong and is picking up momentum because of the talk about the haunting art work design by Brazilian artist Ricardo Movits. His beautiful oil painting takes place inside a surreal Notre-Dame chamber between the three main characters in a maddening nightmare of one of the story's two lovers. Movits' 24" X 36" master artwork captures the mystical moment that highlights the book's intriguing plot and prepares the reader of what kind of struggles lie in ahead for the two lovers and the fate that awaits them in the shadows of the darkest hours still to come.

In addition to the surreal nightmare scene, there are other plot points that are outright shocking as well. An unsuspecting youth is lured to the Notre-Dame choir loft where he is sexually seduced. Another situation occurs where a teenage suicide is revealed in the shadows of the church's men's rest room. Then there's the scene where a character buys "phony" pornographic photos on the church's property. And last but not least, there's the soldier who calls himself The Murderer. Is he just bragging or is he getting down to his heavy duty secrets? These are some of the indiscretions that must be addressed in some way or another. Who is ultimately responsible for the death and destruction that happens at Notre-Dame of Paris? Is it Our Lady herself? Is she a Saint or Sinner? Is she Divine or Damned?

Is there a movie of GIRL FROM RUE SERPENTE somewhere in the future? With all the hoopla building around this book, some motion picture executive should see and hear what's going on right now. Movies with stories about wars and lovers caught in wartime situations have always been gold for Hollywood entertainment executives and that statue named Oscar has been won many times over for the right wartime movies. Does "Raiders of the Lost Ark" ring a bell? How about "Charade?" Don't overlook "Casablanca" or "From Here to Eternity." For the time being, however, were setting out sights on becoming a world-wide Best Selling Novel, eventually at the New York Times. Everything in the proper time…

To order a copy of GIRL FROM RUE SERPENTE to read and review, it is suggested you go to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Booksamillion, Walmart or Ebay

New York Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Offers A Person with Mesothelioma in New York Direct Access To The New York Based Lawyers At Karst von Oiste Who Will Spend The Time To Ensure Better Compensation Results

"Please call us at 800-714-0303 so that we can personally introduce you to attorney Erik Karst and his remarkable team at Karst von Oiste-for a conversation about mesothelioma compensation."

— New York Mesothelioma Victims Center

BUFFALO , NEW YORK, USA, July 30, 2019 / — The New York Mesothelioma Victims Center fears that frequently people with mesothelioma in New York State will act impulsively when it comes to hiring a lawyer to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim-especially if they live outside of New York City. The Internet can be a confusing place when it comes to mesothelioma lawyers. About half of the law firms advertising on the Internet in New York State are out of state marketing law firms-probably not the attorneys who will even work on the case if a person in New York signs up with them as the group would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. https://NewYork.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The New York Mesothelioma Victims Center is an advocate for people with mesothelioma and their top priority is seeing to it that people with mesothelioma in New York State receive the very best possible financial compensation results. They say, "Before a person with mesothelioma anywhere in New York State or their family hires a lawyer or law firm to assist with compensation we are urging them to call us at 800-714-0303 so that we can personally introduce them to attorney Erik Karst and his remarkable team at Karst von Oiste.

"Erik, or one of his firm's lawyer colleagues will come to visit a person with mesothelioma anywhere in New York State in their home. The purpose of the no obligation in home visit is to discuss mesothelioma compensation, how it works, and what type of information they will need to proceed with a mesothelioma compensation claim."

Prior to a meeting like this it is vitally important that the person with mesothelioma start to list all the places, times, and the circumstances related to their asbestos exposure. It is this information that becomes the basis for a mesothelioma compensation claim and it is super important as the New York Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303. https://NewYork.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The New York Mesothelioma Victims Center is especially focused on assisting former factory workers with mesothelioma in upstate New York-including the following communities: Buffalo, Amsterdam, Schenectady, Binghamton, Rochester, Syracuse, Watertown, Utica, Rome, or Poughkeepsie. https://NewYork.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in New York the New York Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following three heath care facilities with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at each hospital:

*New York City's Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Clinic:

*New York City's Columbia Presbyterian Hospital:

*New York City's Mount Sinai Hospital: lung-cancer/about-lung-cancer/ about-mesothelioma/

The New York Mesothelioma Victims Center specializes in financial compensation for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma. High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in New York include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, maritime workers, shipyard workers, manufacturing, or industrial workers, plumbers, welders, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, insulators, miners, railroad workers or construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. Navy Veterans make up about one third of all people diagnosed with mesothelioma in the United States each year.

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma could live in any state including New York.
