Shahroz's New Single KING Dominates as Basketball Anthem

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2019 / — New Jersey artist Shahroz releases his new single “KING”, which has taken the music and basketball world by storm.

KING is an up-tempo, loud, and energetic record riddled with basketball metaphors. “I wanted to create the ultimate basketball anthem that would be played across arenas and used by basketball players at all levels to get pumped up before games. I had an opportunity to submit the song to NBA2K and the NBA through UnitedMasters, so I couldn’t pass that up.” The song has been used in a promotional video for the new video game NBA 2K20, amassing over 200,000 views. The Portland Trailblazers quoted Shahroz’s line about NBA superstar Damian Lillard in a recent tweet and the song has even been mentioned by NBA players such as Enes Kanter.

Recently, Shahroz partnered with the social media titan BallisLife on a mixtape highlight reel of the #1 ranked basketball player in the class of 2021, Jonathan Kuminga, which featured KING as the soundtrack. Don’t be surprised if you hear the single on a later soundtrack update for NBA 2K20.

Shahroz is best known for his breakout in 2012 when he released a single featuring fellow NJ native, Joe Budden. The song was promoted by DJ Funkmaster Flex and generated a large buzz for the young artist. “I was like 20 years old when we did that record with Budden. He was my favorite rapper at the time, and to be able to hang out and work on music with him in the studio for like 6 hours was surreal. It opened a lot of doors for me.”

Shahroz went on to graduate from law school after having worked at Warner Bros. Records. His knowledge of the music industry led to him creating 92F Entertainment, a music agency that was seeded by Bervann Capital. Managing Partner of Bervann Capital, Tariq Hussain said, “When I met with Shahroz, I immediately realized he was hungry, intelligent, and more than just an artist. We would often end up talking about basketball, so I decided to bring him into our ecosystem. We created Bervann Sports Management, a division of Bervann Capital that focuses on basketball, and Shahroz has been working with us.”

“Music and basketball are my two biggest passions. The two have always been intertwined, I mean, even this song is inspired by one of my role models, LeBron James. The opportunity to combine these elements on a large platform was something I always dreamed of. I’ve also been working with a professional trainer so J. Cole, Drake, Meek Mill, or any other rapper that wants to see me on the court can reach out to set up a game,” Shahroz said.

New Documentary, BARNEY'S WALL: PORTRAIT OF A GAME CHANGER, to open the 2019 Prague Writers' Festival

Barney's Wall: Portrait of a Game Changer to screen on October 19, 2019 at 5pm, Tržiště 13, Praha 1, American Center

Barney’s Wall: Portrait of a Game Changer to screen on October 19, 2019 at 5pm, Tržiště 13, Praha 1, American Center

"Without Barney Rosset, American culture as we now know it would not exist." - L.A. Times

“Without Barney Rosset, American culture as we now know it would not exist.” – L.A. Times

Racism. War. Censorship. Rage. Rebellion. The Sixties are back. Rejoin the Underground.

Without Barney Rosset, American culture as we now know it would not exist.”

— L.A. Times

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC, September 30, 2019 / — A timely new feature documentary, BARNEY'S WALL: Portrait of a Game Changer, will open the Prague Writers’ Festival on October 16, 2019 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Through vast archival footage and incisive commentary from major cultural figures, this 78 minute feature documentary traces a pivotal era in world literature.

The film probes the lasting and cultural impact of BARNEY ROSSET, radical Grove Press publisher, free-speech warrior and political activist, one of the most influential cultural impresarios of the last half of the 20th century. Rosset’s fierce mid-century battles against government censorship and surveillance, racial bigotry and the Vietnam war birthed the American 60s counter-culture rebellion, paving the way to today’s unfettered artistic expression.

In an era that is facing social and political upheavals similar to the 50s and 60s, the film is meant to underline the fragility of America's First Amendment rights and civil liberties.

Barney Rosset’s Grove Press/Evergreen Review brought to the reading public an extensive list of the European avant-garde of the 50s and 60s, including European Absurdist dramatists Samuel Beckett, Eugène Ionesco, Jean Genet, Arthur Adamov, and Václav Havel.

The Prague Writers' Festival (PWF) is an annual literary festival in Prague, Czech Republic, taking place every spring since 1991. International literary figures to have appeared at the festival include John Banville, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Salman Rushdie, Irvine Welsh, William Styron and Nadine Gordimer. This year’s writers include Patrizia Cavalli, Michael Cunningham, James Gabbe, Germaine Greer, Arnon Grunberg, Wendy Guerra, Alma Guillermoprieto, Nancy Huston, François Jullien, Sandy Gotham Meehan, and Astrid Myers Rosset.

At his death at 89, Rosset left behind a wall of his memories, encapsulated in intricate vignettes embedded into a 15’ x 22’ wall of his East Village loft. The film uses the vignettes as portals into the formative influences that drove a rebel, war photographer, filmmaker and publisher to an enduring defense of freedom of artistic expression. The loft and the wall have been destroyed by real estate developers undertaking the gentrification of the Lower East Side of NYC. The film is the only record of both.

The documentary has been privately screened at major cultural venues in New York City, San Francisco, Santa Fe, and Paris. Two successful Kickstarters helped fund production of the film.

Produced by FoxHog Productions, NYC, an independent media company that produces and invests in films and video about artists and thinkers whose provocative work alters the cultural and intellectual status quo.

Directed by Sandy Gotham Meehan and Williams Cole, cinematography by David Leitner, edited by Kasia Plazinska.

OBGYN Specialist Dr. William Dillon to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WILLIAMSVILLE, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2019 / — The health and wellness of a pregnant woman and her unborn baby are bound to each other. When the health of one is compromised, both are at risk.

Dr. William Dillon has dedicated his career to maternal-fetal medicine, a sub-specialty of OB/GYN for high-risk pregnancies.

“It goes back to medical school. I was fascinated by the birthing process, so it was natural for me to go into OB/GYN,” says Dr. Dillon. “I was fortunate enough to find great mentors and I decided that I really wanted to focus on poor women who are high-risk pregnancies, women with diseases, hypertension, diabetes, who have a rougher time with their pregnancy than a person in their 20s pregnant for the first time and perfectly healthy.”

Now retired, Dr. Dillon looks back on his nearly 50 years of dedication to the health concerns of babies and mothers who need extra care.

“One of the reasons I went into maternal-fetal medicine is because I'm compassionate,” says Dr. Dillon. “Most people think obstetrics is a happy specialty, but it can be very devastating. An awful lot of things can go wrong in obstetrics so there's an awful lot of sorrow as well.”

Of course, such tragedies are emotionally fraught, and patients look for someone to blame. Dr. Dillon says if you can develop a relationship, they are more than willing to move through the tragedy in a healthy way, an extremely important part of medicine.

“You need compassion to care for mothers who have been told their baby is not normal or that their baby has died in utero. Prepare the patient, keep them informed along the way and be available for them to work through the sorrow that will come. If you don't have that skill, you might be a technically competent doctor, but you're not doing your patients a service. These patients need a lot of support and a lot of help and a lot of compassion.”

Dr. William Dillon is Professor Emeritus at SUNY Buffalo’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. William Dillon MD in an interview with Jim Masters on October 2nd at 11am EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

New giant in online content emerges from tech hub Sweden


Vigor CEO Magnus Sorlander and Chimney CEO Henric Larsson

CVG Board Chairman

CVG Board Chairman Michal Kalinowski

The need for huge volumes of “always-on” quality content has advertisers increasingly sharing the same needs as traditional broadcasters. CVG has the answer.

All trends are pointing in the direction of the need for ever-increasing quantity and quality, storage, tech solutions, and adaptable ways of creating personalized content for target groups.”

— Henric Larsson

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, September 30, 2019 / — The need for huge volumes of “always-on” quality content has advertisers increasingly sharing the same needs as traditional broadcasters, says the newly formed Chimney Vigor Group (CVG)—which now sees itself prepared to assist with this demand “more than any other company in the world”

Stockholm, Sweden (September 24, 2019)—Following its merge with California-based content distribution and media solutions leader Vigor, the Chimney Group is setting itself up for exponential growth and further international reach—positioning itself as a serious contender in the US content production and distribution industry.

Vigor operates the biggest and most advanced content distribution network and monitoring system in the broadcast industry, delivering nearly 75% of syndicated TV content in the US, with clients including giants CBS, Fox and Warner. Founded in 1996 in Sweden, The Chimney Group has built its reputation as an innovative global creative studio with offices in four continents, using a unique mix of creativity and smart content management and distribution. Its client roster includes Netflix, Facebook, H&M, and Atlas Copco, among hundreds of others.

Operational from Autumn 2019 with full implementation by March 2020, CVG will become one of the leading privately-owned content studios in the US. Combining Vigor’s tech experience of managing masses of content with Chimney’s communications creative solutions, CVG will be able to create, manage and distribute thousands of content assets per month, expecting to double its revenue and client base in the coming years.

“All trends are pointing in the direction of the need for ever-increasing quantity and quality, storage, tech solutions, and adaptable ways of creating personalized content for target groups,” said Group CEO Henric Larsson. “Clients today typically seek hundreds of outputs for a single campaign, compared to just 5 years ago when they might have been able to get away with a 30-second spot and a handful of cut downs,” he added.

Employing nearly 500 people and covering the USA, EU, and APAC regions, CVG expects to gain significant control of this explosive video market, continuing to service existing as well as new multinational and larger local clients.

“Bringing the benefits of a marriage of creativity and tech to the US market is very exciting,” said North America CEO Marcelo Gandola. “We are removing complexity, enabling seamless content production and distribution by harnessing tech to deliver creativity at scale. The result is reduced costs, improved collaboration, and simpler workflows. We’re gearing up for the future, but our biggest clients are already here, so we need this now.”

“Chimney and Vigor’s combined strengths place us as pioneers in the future of media, entertainment, and brand solutions, catering to the key need for faster and more efficient brand development and management—combined with a strong base in creativity,” Larsson added.

About Vigor
OneVigor, Inc. is a privately owned, media technology solutions company with a thriving network of technology partners and customers within the media, cable and broadcast industries. Founded in 2002, the company provides content distribution, ad insertion, and media solutions for some of the biggest networks and brands in the world.
In Depth

As technology becomes increasingly fine-tuned, so are global brands’ target market segments. With this increased demand for targeted advertising, annual spend on digital video ads is forecast to increase by 17%, reaching $43 billion by 2020.

But with stagnant or declining budgets, corporations are struggling to keep up with production of the required high-quality content, at mass volume. The solution, says CVG, is automizing content production—the critical gap that Vigor’s nearly 20 years of software building experience fills.

CVG’s step into the world of data-driven, live and dynamic content enables marketing teams to create more and better adverts and communications solutions in less time.

Creativity + Tech

While there are at least 50,000 marketing tech products on the market today, tech alone cannot solve the need for mass volumes and seamless content production and distribution—creativity is key to create impact, said Vigor’s CEO, Magnus Sorlander.

“The challenge has always been to join creativity with the processes and automation needed,” he said. “Tech boosts and supports creativity and together they deliver a higher impact than if standing alone.”

Vigor’s experience with entertainment, advertising, and user-generated content distribution will now thrive next to the award-winning creative powerhouse Chimney Group, adds Sorlander.

MedTech Company AMBOSS Raises €30M in Series B

AMBOSS Mobile App



Since last funding, exam prep tool for students has grown to global platform for doctors, equipping more than half a million users with latest medical knowledge

Our mission is to connect every doctor with precise medical knowledge to provide the best possible care.”

— Benedikt Hochkirchen, co-CEO of AMBOSS

BERLIN, GERMANY, GERMANY, September 30, 2019 / — AMBOSS has secured €30 million in Series B funding led by Partech’s growth fund, with Target Global acting as a co-investor.

Two of the largest hospital groups in Europe use AMBOSS as a standard platform for their doctors. In close partnership with leading medical societies, AMBOSS incorporates the latest medical guidelines, pushing evidence-based medicine further, offering higher standards and improving the quality of healthcare.

“Medical knowledge is exploding and it is almost impossible for doctors to quickly obtain reliable clinical information,” said Benedikt Hochkirchen, co-CEO of AMBOSS. “Our mission is to connect every doctor with precise medical knowledge to provide the best possible care. This new funding will allow us to make a meaningful contribution to global health. We are proud of our team’s exceptional achievements and grateful for the trust of our investors.

Harky’s Chimney & Home Services Promotes National Chimney Safety Week

Harky's Chimney & Home Services

Harky’s Chimney & Home Services

Needed Repairs Can't Hide Behind The Glitz & Glamour

Needed Repairs Can’t Hide Behind The Glitz & Glamour

Harky's Chimney & Home Services wants to remind homeowners about fireplace and chimney safety and having them inspected annually to keep occupants safe

The National Fire Protection Association Standard (NFPA) 211 recommends an annual chimney inspection by a qualified professional to help prevent carbon monoxide hazards and chimney fires.”

— Todd Harkrider

HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2019 / — An annual chimney inspection performed by a qualified professional can help prevent carbon monoxide leaking back into the home and chimney fires. These inspections can also identify potential fireplace/chimney issues to address before they become a more costly repair and save lives.

The National Fire Protection Association Standard (NFPA) 211 says, "Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary." This is the national safety standard – the standard takes into account the fact that even if you don't use your chimney often animals building nests in the chimney and/or deterioration of fireplace/chimney could still deem it unsafe to use.

The Facts About Chimney Fires
While a fireplace adds architectural character and value to your home, its real function is to carry dangerous flue gases safely out of your home. If not properly maintained the fireplace and chimney can cause chimney fires, destroy homes and kill occupants.

Indications of a chimney fire have been described as creating:
• loud cracking and popping noise
• a lot of dense smoke, and
• an intense, hot smell

You may see flames or dense smoke shoot from the top of the chimney and/or hear a low rumbling sound (such as the sound of a freight train). However, most chimney fires go undetected as they are slow-burning – they don’t have enough air or have enough fuel to be noticeable yet can still reach a very high temperature and cause structural damage. Most of these are primarily only detected by a chimney inspection.

Signs that You’ve Had a Chimney Fire
Given the additional risks of using a fireplace after a chimney fire occurred, here are signs that a professional chimney sweep will look for during inspection:
• “Puffy” or “honey combed” creosote
• Creosote flakes found on the roof or ground
• Roofing material damaged from hot creosote
• Cracks in exterior masonry
• Evidence of smoke escaping through mortar joints of masonry (brick, stone, etc) or clay tile liners
• Cracked or collapsed clay flue tiles
• Discolored and/or warped metal flue pipe or chimney cap
• Warped metal of the damper and/or metal smoke chamber connector pipe of a prefab (factory-built metal fireplace/chimney)

Creosote is black or brown in color and can be crusty and flaky, a tar-like substance, drippy and sticky, or shiny and hardened. It typically builds up on chimney flue liners and is typically due to restricted air supply, cool chimney temperatures, or burning unseasoned wood. All forms can actually occur in the same chimney – and whatever form it takes creosote is highly combustible.

If you think a chimney fire has occurred, call Harky’s Chimney & Home Services, LLC for a professional inspection. We can make recommendations on how to safely bring it back to code – whether it’s a simple repair to an entire fireplace and chimney rebuild. Each situation is unique – and having a professional chimney sweep inspect it is highly recommended.

Proper Maintenance
As a reminder – clean chimneys typically don’t catch fire. The National Fire Protection Association Standard (NFPA) 211 recommends an annual chimney inspection performed by a qualified professional to help prevent carbon monoxide leaking back into the home and chimney fires. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary. These inspections can also identify potential fireplace/chimney issues to address before they become a more costly repair and save lives. This is the national safety standard – the standard takes into account the fact that even if you don't use your chimney often animals building nests in the chimney and/or deterioration of fireplace/chimney could still deem it unsafe to use.

When it comes to sweeping the chimney, the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends that open masonry fireplaces should be swept at 1/8 inch of sooty buildup, and sooner if there is any glaze present in the system. Even at a small 1/8” inch buildup it’s enough fuel buildup to cause a chimney fire and possible death of occupants. For prefabs (factory-built fireplaces) – they should be swept when any appreciable buildup occurs given the buildup is acidic and can easily shorten the life of the fireplace.
