Chalet Les Anges is so deserving of the award of The World’s Best Ski Chalet. The property is simply the best ski rental property”

— Alexandra Baradi

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, IRELAND, December 12, 2019 / — One of Exceptional Villas most popular vacation rentals has been awarded the World’s Best Ski Chalet for an unprecedented three years in a row. Chalet Les Anges has its location in the beautiful car-free town of Zermatt in Switzerland. It is a monumental achievement to be given the award for the best ski chalet in the world three years in a row. Chalet Les Anges also received the award for the best ski chalet in Switzerland.

The World Ski Awards which take places in Kitzbühel every year is the only global initiative that recognizes, celebrates and rewards excellence in ski tourism. The World Ski Awards take place every November. During the event, international leaders from the industry come together to exchange ideas, best practices, innovations and knowledge.
Exceptional Villas who are the world’s leading villa and vacation rental company when it comes to service represent villas and chalets throughout the world.

Alexandra Baradi, Owner and CEO of Exceptional Villas, said “Chalet Les Anges is so deserving of the award of The World’s Best Ski Chalet. The property is simply the best ski rental property.” The team led by Eilidh and Klodi work extremely hard and consider every last detail for their clients. Every guest feels extra special. Many clients mention that the team who work in the chalet are almost like magicians. They anticipate and think of their client's needs and wants almost before their clients think of them themselves. This ability to anticipate clients wishes is the hallmark of the incredible service that clients experience when they stay in the chalet.

Chalet Les Anges has a unique location overlooking the stunningly beautiful car-free town of Zermatt in Switzerland. With a south-facing position, the chalet has the best view of the famous Matterhorn mountain in the town. Enormous panoramic windows take full advantage of the spectacular view.

There are seven bedrooms in the chalet sleeping up to 14 people. Chalet Les Anges comes fully staffed with a house manager, assistant manager, housekeepers and a Michelin standard chef. In the winter months, the chalet comes fully catered, which means that the rate includes all meals, food, house wines and drinks. In the summer months, clients can choose between either bed and breakfast rate or a fully catered rate.

The wellness area is one of the highlights of this incredibly luxurious Ski chalet. Its features include natural stone walls, a central water feature, massage room, hammam, steam room, sauna, and shower. The spa has direct access to the terrace with incredible Matterhorn views. There is a 3m2 power jet plunge pool. For added convenience, guests have access to the Ski room with heated boots racks.

The town of Zermatt is extraordinary. It is one of the few car-free towns left in the world. The only forms of transport are by foot, bicycle, horse-drawn carriage or electric taxi. The town center has retained a beautiful old world charm yet is full of gorgeous restaurants, bars and shops. However, the crème de la crème of a visit to Zermatt is without a doubt the fantastic skiing and the gourmet mountain restaurants. The skiing is vast and is connected with the towns of Cervinia and Valtourneche. It is possible to have breakfast in Zermatt, lunch in Italy and dinner back in your chalet cooked by your private chef in Switzerland. The mountain restaurants are worth a special mention as there is no ski resort in the world with the same quality of restaurants as Zermatt. Lunches are generally long and leisurely with exquisite food and fabulous wines.

CSA Balloons Introduces Top-Printed Balloons For Custom Balloon Decorations

Custom Balloon Printing

Custom balloon decorations

Logos make a custom column look more professional

Custom Balloons NY

The leading producer of custom printed balloons in North-America is raising industry standards once again.

NEW YORK,, NEW YORK , UNITED STATES, December 12, 2019 / — Experts in custom balloon printing for now 20 years, the folks at CSA Balloons have been offering custom balloon set up and decoration services for years now. They have worked with companies big and small, serving their impressive client roster throughout the United States and Canada. With this new service, CSA is now increasing logo exposure and the quality of custom decorations to clients interested in custom balloon decor.

A Proprietary Technology – Custom Balloon Top-Printing

Many qualified printers are able to print on nearly the totality of the balloon surface, including the top (think wholesale birthday balloons), however, no printer other than CSA has the technology to print solely on the top of the balloon; and they do it beautifully! When inflated, the size of the imprint is approximately 7-inches in diameter, and the quality of print is impeccable.

Why Is Top-Printing Important?

Top-printing is important in custom balloon decorating, because it allows Certified Balloon Artists to design any kind of balloon decoration with integrated custom printed balloons. Certified Balloon Artists can now use the company logo or message as a part of their intricate and beautiful balloon art. This allows the logo to become the focal point of the decor. As a result, companies get more brand exposure and a more personalized and professional look. Other balloon printing businesses without the top-print technology will only be able to scatter their clients’ logo in the decor, often the logo imprint becoming partially hidden by other balloons.

Ways To Use Custom Top-Printed Balloons

CSA Balloons recommends using top-printed custom balloons within balloon decorations. Top-printed balloons look best when integrated in a custom balloon column or arch of any size. However, with balloons, the sky's the limit. “Our clients’ imagination never ceases to impress us. We have already seen so many creative ways to use top-print balloons!”, mentions CSA Balloons Founder, Csaba Laviolette. Large balloon walls, hanging balloon ceilings, and even balloon drops are amongst some of the more original ideas created to date. We look forward to seeing what new innovations CSA Balloons, and their clients, have in store for us!

About CSA Balloons:

For more than twenty years,CSA Balloons CSA Balloons has been a leader in custom balloon printing. With offices in Canada and the USA, they supply personalized balloons to clients throughout North-America. Their dedicated staff will help any business or association create the perfect custom balloons for any event. Renowned for their impeccable print quality, fast delivery, and outstanding customer service, they are the top-choice balloon printers for businesses big and small.

Foreign policy was the theme of Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam's (TGTE) three-day Parliamentary Session in Switzerland.

ZURICH , SWITZERLAND, December 11, 2019 / —

The Parliament session of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) has concluded with a resolve to draw up a foreign policy to secure the interests of Tamils by getting them as a party in the Indo-Pacific geopolitics with Sri Lanka at the center.

Foreign policy was the theme of the three-day direct session in Switzerland and political analyst Mu. Thirunavukkarasu and the Prime Minister V. Rudrakumaran had elucidated the key viewpoints on the subject. The Members of Parliament had also placed on record their notions.

The imperative need of working on a strategy of nurturing international relations and reaping the benefits at the opportune time is well felt. Accordingly, the Ministry of Political Affairs has suggested that it is not only high time an internationalrelations policy for the Tamil nation is worked out, but an international relations policy for the Tamil nation to secure its interests.

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam intends to draw up a draft in this regard by incorporating the ideas of the people at large including academicians and resource persons from the Homeland, Tamilnadu and the diaspora. A public announcement to this effect will soon be made.

In the three-day sitting spanning Swiss and London, there were meaningful exchanges on various subjects including the performance report of the Ministries of the TGTE, side events, amendments to the Constitution and the Tamil Eelam national card.

The next direct TGTE Parliamentary sitting will be held in the USA.

Twitter: @TGTE_PMO





The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a democratically elected Government of over a million strong Tamils (from the island of Sri Lanka) living in several countries around the world.

TGTE was formed after the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Government in 2009.

TGTE thrice held internationally supervised elections among Tamils around the world to elect 132 Members of Parliament. It has two chambers of Parliament: The House of Representatives and the Senate and also a Cabinet.

TGTE is leading a campaign to realize the political aspirations of Tamils through peaceful, democratic, and diplomatic means and its Constitution mandates that it should realize its political objectives only through peaceful means. It’s based on the principles of nationhood, homeland and self-determination.

TGTE seeks that the international community hold the perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the Tamil people to account. TGTE calls for a referendum to decide the political future of Tamils.

The Prime Minister of TGTE is Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, a New York based lawyer.

Twitter: @TGTE_PMO


Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka faced repeated mass killings in 1958, 1977, and 1983 and the mass killings in 2009 prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a Panel of Experts to report on the scale of the killings.

According to UN internal review report on Sri Lanka, over 70 thousand Tamils were killed in six months in early 2009 and Tamil women were sexually assaulted and raped by the Sri Lankan Security forces.

A report by the International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) published details of Sri Lankan Military run "Rape Camps", where Tamil women are being held as sex slaves. There are over 90,000 Tamil war widows and thousands of Tamils disappeared due the conflict.

According to this UN report, the killings and other abuses that took place amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. Independent experts believe that there are elements of these abuses that constitute an act of genocide.

Members of the Sri Lankan security forces are almost exclusively from the Sinhalese community and the victims are all from the Tamil community. A Buddhist Monk shot and killed a Sri Lankan Prime Minister 1959 for having talks with Tamils.

Tamils overwhelmingly voted in a Parliamentary election in 1977 to establish an independent and sovereign country called Tamil Eelam. This Parliamentary election was conducted by the Sri Lankan Government.

Dr. Srini Pillay, Best-Selling Author, Examines the Consciousness in Jimi Hendrix’s Addiction

Dr. Srini Pillay.

“The stigma around drug use and its associated psychiatric vulnerabilities such as depression remain ride.” – Dr. Srini Pillay

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 / — Remembering the birth of Jimi Hendrix 77 years later: November 27, 1942. If Jimi Hendrix was alive, he would be 77 years old this month. Instead, he overdosed and died at the tender age of 27 in room 507 at The Samarkand Hotel in London. Widely regarded as one of the greatest instrumentalists of rock music, Hendrix’s guitar mastery remains an inspiration, my favorite songs of his being “Hey Joe” and “Purple Haze.” The immense joy that he brought so many people was only exceeded by the sadness of losing him. Who knows how music would have changed had his addictions been addressed. More importantly, imagine how much longer he could have enjoyed his own brilliance.

Since then, some things have changed and some have not. The stigma around drug use and its associated psychiatric vulnerabilities such as depression remain rife. While psychiatry has done much to advance the treatment of addictions, the psychiatric lexicon still has subtle descriptors that perhaps contribute to this stigma.

Words like “impaired” judgement, while seemingly accurate, also imply that something is damaged, deranged or strangely altered. But “judgement” itself is not an addressable problem in a person who suffers form addiction. In addiction, judgment is under siege. Choice appears to be an option to outsiders, but for those who are lost and in pain, choice becomes the slave of mood, and even a brilliance like Hendrix’s is eclipsed from one’s own mind. It’s not so much that addiction is disorder, it’s an unfortunate new order that blocks a sustained embrace of life. Its not choiceness though—addiction can be stopped in its tracks.

Though we may not have Hendrix’s talent, we are all born to the dubious gift of this life with one very bright possibility ~ to explore and develop our consciousness safely; to discover our own funky genius; and to share it with others so that we can enjoy the enhancements of collective and connected magic.

#hotdatebrainfact: Did you know that aerobic exercise improves control over addiction, and reduces the brain’s craving? (

Russian Icon Collection – A Complete Book on Antique Russian Icons

Menaion icon

Icon of St. Catherine

The Resurrection – The Harrowing of Hades

Russian Icon is pleased to introduce Russian Icon Collection, our first collaborative project with the Museum of the Russian Icon in Moscow.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, December 11, 2019 / — Russian Icon, a specialist online gallery of religious icon art and artifacts, is pleased to introduce our first collaborative project with the Museum of the Russian Icon in Moscow – a complete book on antique Russian icons, titled Russian Icon Collection. The book represents a collection of museum-quality icons created in the Russian Empire in the 18th-19th centuries, each accompanied by the high-resolution images and detailed iconographic descriptions provided by the leading experts in Russian icon art.

Russian Icon Collection is a result of a several-year research initiative aimed at the popularization of Russian icon art, a unique form of religious art originated in the first years of Christianity. The icons included in the book come from private collections, with many pieces that have rarely or never been displayed to the public before. Each featured icon was professionally evaluated and described by Anna Ivannikova, a reputable art expert and historian who has made a significant contribution to studying antique icons, and Sergey Khodorkovskiy, a private collector and specialist in old Russian icons. Thanks to their efforts, Russian Icon Collection represents a compilation of expert knowledge gained over many years of experience.

The collection of Russian icons included in the book is distinguished by a unique style and value. Most of the featured icons were created in the important iconographic centers of the Russian Empire, particularly in Palekh, Mstyora, and Kholuy. Among the highlights are 18th- and 19th-century icons depicting the scene of The Resurrection – The Harrowing of Hades, also known as “full-cycle icons” or “polnitsy.” Other interesting examples of Russian icon art presented in Russian Icon Collection are the Feodorovskaya Mother of God with the legend of the icon in 16 border scenes, a set of 12 Menaion icons with the depictions of feasts and saints for each month of the ecclesiastical year, a rare icon of the Iconostasis, and hagiographical icons of St. Alexius – the Man of God and St. Catherine, among others.

Russian Icon Collection is the first book released by Russian Icon in collaboration with the Museum of the Russian Icon in Moscow. The latter is the largest private museum of Russian icons and Christian art in Russia, which was founded by the reputable art patron and philanthropist Mikhail Abramov in 2006. The Museum is housed in two historic mansions on Goncharnaya Street in Moscow, reconstructed and equipped for storing and displaying a collection of nearly 5,000 pieces. Admission is free, including guided tours, lectures, and concerts held at the Museum.

A PDF version of Russian Icon Collection can be downloaded on the official website of Russian Icon. The printed version of the book is expected to be released in the near future.

MENTIS Features in Gartner Market Guide for Data Masking for the Fourth Straight Year

MENTIS features as a leading vendor in the Market Guide for data masking.

The threat and compliance environments are constantly evolving & this also fuels the need to protect the data sufficiently. With MENTIS, you can secure your data without affecting your business needs.”

— Rajesh Parthasarathy, CEO of MENTIS

NEW YORK, NY, US, December 11, 2019 / — Gartner’s most recent Market Guide for Data Masking publication again features MENTIS as a leader in the space.
The report focuses on the critical elements of the data masking lifecycle, which include static data masking, dynamic data masking (repository, proxy, API, and application deployment), data redaction for unstructured and semi-structured data, and data and relationship discovery.

The November 26th report states, “By 2022, consistent enterprise-wide use of Data Masking or similar deidentification techniques will increase to 50%, an increase from 20% in 2018.” They added, “There is a definite convergence in data de-identification techniques. 75% of all data security vendors will be offering masking, encryption, and tokenization capabilities by 2022.”

MENTIS has pioneered the data masking space since its founding and has added new capabilities with each release as the threat landscape evolves.

With MENTIS, you can secure your data without affecting day-to-day business needs. Independent mentions from respected analysts like Gartner reinforces our focus and passion for innovating and leading the market with technology solutions in data and application security that drive real value to customers,” noted Rajesh Parthasarathy, CEO of MENTIS.

MENTIS Director Suresh Sundaram continued, “We are extremely proud to be featured in Gartner’s data masking market guide, consecutively for the fourth year. MENTIS has been a visionary in this data security, and we are glad to have this independent affirmation.”

The enterprise-ready platform uses shared sensitive data intelligence and a common database architecture across products, brings clear segregation of duties capabilities, and adds ease of implementation on a low-overhead/high-performance architecture.

Levi’s And Habitat For Humanity Honored With ‘Golden Halo’ For Best-In-Class Corporate Social Impact Efforts

Golden Halo Award Logo

RYE, NEW YORK, USA, December 11, 2019 / — Engage for Good has named Levi Strauss & Co. and Habitat for Humanity International its 2020 Golden Halo Award winners, the group’s highest honor for companies and causes that engage in activities designed to do well by doing good.

Accepting the honors at the Engage for Good Conference on May 27-28th at Austin’s Hyatt Regency Hotel will be Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International, and Kelly McGinnis, Chief Communications Officer of Levi Strauss & Co.

This marks the 18th time the Golden Halo Awards have been given to a business and a nonprofit for their outstanding achievements in the field of corporate social impact.

“With the evolution of the social impact space and rising consumer and employee expectations, it’s incredibly inspiring to see how organizations like Levi’s and Habitat for Humanity are raising the bar for all of us,” said Engage for Good President David Hessekiel. “The Golden Halo Awards are reserved for those companies and nonprofit organizations that manage their affairs in a manner that meaningfully and measurably yield social and financial dividends. We’re thrilled to showcase these organizations and their impressive efforts to unite and engage consumers and employees around initiatives that are making a purposeful impact in our world.”

2019 Golden Halo Award Winner (Corporate): Levi Strauss & Co.
Jeans started as an invention for the American worker in 1873 and quickly became the uniform of progress. Worn by miners, cowboys, rebels, rock stars, presidents and everyday men and women, this functional denim staple were the clothes people not only worked in—they lived their lives in, too.

From its humble beginnings, Levi's® have come to represent the purest wearable form of authentic self-expression. With 500 stores worldwide, and products like jeans, casual wear and accessories available in more than 100 countries with brands that include Levi's®, Dockers®, Signature by Levi Strauss & Co.™ and Denizen®, the values of empathy, originality, integrity and courage power the company's commitment to "drive profits through principles".

Commitments to equality and sustainability led Levi Strauss & Co. to integrate American factories before the Civil Rights Act, lead multi-national companies in establishing comprehensive labor standards, take early and consistent action on LGBT equity, aggressively adopt water-saving and climate-conscious production techniques and support employees in their efforts to give back.

Recently, Levi’s outspoken leadership on issues such as the "Time to Vote" campaign, support for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and gun violence prevention have inspired many other companies and individuals to take action.

“Throughout our history, we’ve been pioneers for progress,” said Levi’s Chief Communications Officer Kelly McGinnis. “We are at our best when we’re leading the industry and fully leaning into our values – empathy, originality, integrity, and courage – those values have led us to take historic stances that may not have been popular at the time, but have proven to be on the right side of history. Whether it was integrating our factories long before the law required it, spending decades advocating for equality and sustainability issues, or responding to the call for greater civic engagement by weighing in on gun violence prevention, immigration nondiscrimination and voter engagement. Time and again we’ve seen that where we lead, others follow — and we're proud of the industry and social changes we’ve helped pioneer.”

2019 Golden Halo Award Winner (Nonprofit): Habitat for Humanity International
Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S., and in more than 70 countries. To date, Habitat has helped more than 29 million people gain access to new or improved housing.

Mistakenly many people think volunteering time on a build site is the only way to give to Habitat. Few realize the scope of Habitat’s work within the affordable housing sector or are aware that Habitat relies on monetary donations to fund their critical work.

To combat this challenge, Habitat has increased its focus on cause marketing and consumer fundraising. Since concentrating its efforts in 2017 around the theme of home through the organization’s signature “Home is the Key” campaign, Habitat has dramatically increased the scope of its corporate partnerships with business allies such as Nissan, At Home stores, Chico's FAS, and Google Nest. These cause campaigns, together with the long-standing support from other industry leaders such as The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Wayfair and Whirlpool, fuel Habitat’s work in the U.S. and abroad.

Offering varied ways of engaging has increased Habitat’s appeal to corporate partners. Companies can organize employee volunteer days on a Habitat site, donate products for sale in Habitat for Humanity ReStores, or leverage major event sponsorships that offer national media platforms. Increasingly, partners that join Habitat through one channel end up deepening and widening their work with the organization over time.

“A core tenet of Habitat’s philosophy is partnership. Whether it’s working side-by-side with a future homeowner on a build site, or Habitat’s partnership with companies to enable our work, we believe that the world is changed when we work together,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “The Golden Halo award represents years of work by our team and that of the entire Habitat network to engage partners in meaningful ways that help us carry out our mission.

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 / — First and foremost, and without a doubt, "Running Wild" is the Most Famous Horse icon in the world. It is the Jim Warren surreal prototype painting for the other Jim Warren single most famous horse icon in contemporary art: Bob Seger's "Against the Wind" LP which won the 1981 Grammy Award for "Best Album Cover," and people bought more than 6,000,000 copies world-wide.

This upcoming auction is expected to be in an important Ebay luxury buying event: Dec. 11, 5 am (Pacific Standard Time).

Item ID: 283704115901

"Against the Wind's" original oil painting was owned by Bob Seger until it became a permanent possession of the art collection at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, Ohio in 2004. Time Magazine estimated that the museum attracts over 1,000,000 visitors a year.

The cover art winning painting, "Against the Wind" was painted by Warren in 1980. "Running Wild" was painted by Warren circa 1977, measures 14" x 24" and was purchased directly from the artist. It is one of the very first horse images Warren ever painted before going on to become one of the top horse painters in the whole world, having painted over 30 horse paintings, including many stunning groundbreaking images as "Running Wild" which has movement of running horses bursting out of a Warrenesque globe in the middle of an ocean for a new first in horse painting.

Other paintings include horses emerging from ocean waves. Furthermore, most of Warren's horse paintings had limited editions, primarily with giclee on canvas or lithographs. To view a fascinating Warren "hologram" horse painting with contemporary appeal, check out his exhilarating "Computer Games" on Art Collectors Website. Or view it on our video later in the press release.

Look at, the world's greatest internet website with well over 10 Billion images in its database that Google officially reported publicly in 2011. One search may bring up results that shows some 200 images on average for a single Google image search.

Did you realize that Google has 5.6 Billion searches per day. That means that every day new people are discovering new paintings on a grand scale. After all, Google Images is the world's greatest art museum.

Assuming that Image Google has the same amount of images in its database that it did in its last public report in 2011 and nothing new was added, it would contain some 10,000,000,000 ( 10 billion ) images minimum. So, in other words, .01 % of 10,000,000,000 would be 100,000,000. Take .01 % of that and you get 1,000,000 ( 1 million ) images. Based on these figures, to have a painting image appear in 100 or 200 of the top painting searches Is OUTRAGEOUS. So get ready to be floored!

To be the # 1 or # 2 in the first top 10 images is TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS! This is truly all about what art investment today is all about. You can see why Google Images is quickly becoming the "new art standard" for painting values in high quality art investments.

"Running Wild" appears on Horse Paintings Images lists in the TOP 10 more than 24 times: Page 1 # 1, Page 1 # 1, Page 1 # 1, Page 1 # 1, Page 1 # 2, Page 1 # 2, Page 1 # 2, Page 1 # 2, Page 1 # 2, Page 1 # 2, Page 1 # 2, Page 1 # 2, Page 1 # 3, Page 1 # 3, Page 1 # 3, Page 1 # 3, Page 1 # 4, Page 1 # 4, Page 1 # 4, Page 1 # 5, Page 1 # 6, Page 1 # 6, Page 1 # 7, Page 1 # 8, Page 1 # 8. And that's only on Page 1's Top 10. Pick yourself off the floor and continue reading.

Based on Google Images research, Jim Warren's prototype painting" "Running Wild" viewing stats are outweighing the Bob Seger LP painting image of "Against the Wind." "Running Wild" appears in Google Images at a minimum of 30 times, making Jim Warren perhaps the most established horse painter in art history. We have the actual relevant online copies of all the documentation which may be viewed on request.

Art investors should note that on Google Images searches Jim Warren often outranks some of the greatest names in art as da Vinci, Michelangelo, Van Gogh, Degas, Renoir, Monet, Manet, Turner, Picasso, Modigliani, Rembrandt, Dali, Warhol, Klimt, Gauguin and hundreds more. Google Images is getting input from billions of people viewing the internet every day, not a handful of elite experts at museums and a few auction houses. Yes, the times — they are a-changin'.

This beautiful Warren trailblazing artwork "Running Wild," which leads the pack, should interest any of the top 10 billionaire art collectors and investors in China: Wanwan Lei & Lin Han, Qiao Zhibing, Chong hou, Wang Wei & Liu Yiqian, Lu Jun & Lu Xun, Lawrence Chu, Zhou Tong, Wang Zhongjun, Huang Yu and Zheng Hao.

A well-respected art executive, J.Tomilson Hill with Blackstone, predicts China will be opening many new art museums in the near future and they'll need strong spellbinding paintings to deck those poetic walls. A good start would be Jim Warren's One and Only "Running Wild" painting. Do your research and go with the winners.

Live your passion and be passionate about what your eyes tell you.

Remember, the Ebay Auction for "Running Wild" starts Dec. 11, 5 am. ITEM ID: 283704115901
