We are proud to begin presenting the solo*CODE as proof of our commitment to safety and comfort to consumers who are looking for a healthy experience and finding their way to our quality products.”

— Amy Wiser, President, Chronic Creek

BOSTON, MA, USA, October 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — solo sciences inc (solo*) announced today that Chronic Creek of Humboldt County, California (www.chroniccreek.com), has become a charter member of solo* and will work with solo* to verify their packaged cannabis products and gain consumer feedback and insights.

Ashesh (Alex) Shah, Founder and CEO of solo*, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Chronic Creek as another prominent charter member brand for solo*. Chronic Creek’s focus on providing a clean, safe, product while also carefully working with those on their farm as well as at the county, state, and lab levels aligns well with our mission at solo* to deliver trust and transparency to consumers. Consumers become loyal to companies like Chronic Creek that have superior vision and controls and deliver a consistent product that they understand. Like other brands that become solo* Members, Chronic Creek is positioned to demonstrate trust to their consumer base through validation of their business practices and product testing, and they will benefit as their products earn and display our proprietary trust mark, the solo*CODE.”

Amy Wiser, President of Chronic Creek, responded: “As soon as we met the team at solo*, we applied to become a charter member. Knowing that Chronic Creek and its products could be vetted by solo* to earn a trust mark conveying our commitment to consumer safety was all it took. We are deeply intentional from farm to consumer, and that means earning, building, and maintaining consumer trust – especially among newcomers who may find dispensaries and the wide array of choices a daunting proposition. Together with solo*, we look forward to providing a healthy experience to all consumers who find their way to our products.”

As more brands and consumers come to rely on solo* to understand or discern the quality and legitimacy of a product, the industry will find it easier to elevate the companies that provide the greatest levels of trust and transparency. Furthermore, increased participation and closing the loop between the product creator and the consumer with a trust mark and mobile application will enable consumers to make increasingly smarter and more reliable purchasing decisions.

Ohmcraft Designs Custom, Ultra-Low Noise Resistor Network for the Detection of Neutrinos

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For seven years, Ohmcraft has worked closely with a world-class scientific research center to design a custom leaded resistor network for the deployment of a neutrino detector located more than a mile underground.

Neutrinos are invisible, nearly massless particles emitted by the sun that penetrate the Earth up to 1,400 meters underground. They are of interest to scientists for their potential to transform global communication and remotely detect the presence of nuclear weapons.

“Due to neutrinos’ small size, scientists need extremely sensitive equipment in order to detect them,” said Eric Van Wormer. “Ohmcraft partnered with the research center to develop a completely custom, high-resistance network with ultra-low noise to enable this detection.”

There are more than 2,000 of these resistor networks utilized in the neutrino detector sensors. As a global leader in thick-film, high voltage, high precision resistor design and manufacturing, Ohmcraft has the ability to produce resistor networks over 100 giga-ohms with ultra-low noise, providing high resistance and value.

About Ohmcraft

Ohmcraft’s thick-film, surface mount resistors are engineered to meet application specific needs. Our proprietary Micropen printing technology is the foundation for Ohmcraft’s family of resistor products. Ohmcraft precision leaded resistors are manufactured with our patented Micropen technology to create a unique serpentine design that withstands voltages up to 100kV and provides an unmatched level of performance and stability.

L. Ron Hubbard Theater Presents a Spooktacular Performance on October 26th

The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre performing a western at the Scientology Information Center. “Shadows from Boot Hill” is coming on October 26th

While it’s set in the Old West, it [the story] also has the eeriness of the supernatural – right on time for Halloween.”

— Amber Skjelset, the Center’s Manager

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, October 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre will deliver an old-time radio-style performance of the western story, Shadows from Boot Hill, at the Scientology Information Center in downtown Clearwater, on Friday, October 26th at 6:30 pm. There is no cost to attend and light refreshments will be served. All are welcome.

This story was written by L. Ron Hubbard in 1940 and was featured in the June issue of Wild West Weekly and was Hubbard’s only western with supernatural elements, combining fantasy elements in a western was unheard of at the time. It was reprinted recently by Galaxy Press with the following introduction:

"Every man walks with a shadow … but what happens when he acquires a second one? Just ask Brazos who’s a cold-blooded killer for hire with blood on his hands and a posse on his trail.

"As Brazos is about to discover, the Wild West doesn’t get any wilder than when a man is damned to live—and die—in the Shadows from Boot Hill*."

The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre is a volunteer group founded in 2011. Their shows combine talented actors, costumes, lighting and sound effects to bring the exciting pulp-fiction stories written by L. Ron Hubbard to life.

“This story is perfect for this time of year,” said Amber Skjelset, the Center’s Manager. “While it’s set in the Old West, it also has the eeriness of the supernatural – right on time for Halloween. The plot will keep the audience guessing until the very end.”

L. Ron Hubbard was among the most prolific and popular writers of the 20th century. Indeed, between 1934 and 1940, some 140 L. Ron Hubbard tales appeared in the pages of legendary pulp magazines—often as many as three titles an issue and bylined under some fifteen pen names. With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation, Mr. Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time.

“These performances are one of my favorite things to do! They are so entertaining! I feel like I am back in the 40’s,” said Francine, a regular guest.

Seating is limited. To reserve seats or to learn more about the event, contact Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center at 727-467-6966 or amber@cos.flag.org<mailto:amber@cos.flag.org>.

The Scientology Information Center:

The Scientology Information Center, located in the Historic Clearwater Building in downtown Clearwater, opened on July 11, 2015, and currently houses a gallery of audiovisual displays with some 400 videos. The Center is open to all and provides a self-guided tour showing basic Scientology beliefs, Churches around the world, ongoing social programs and the life of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology's founder. The Center offers tours to the broad public and civic leaders; holds concerts, theatrical performances and receptions for the community; and opens up the use of its conference room to social, civic and non-profit groups.

Deafening Silence from Cuomo on Sex Abuse Cover-Up Scandal

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s fraudulent Justice Center is covering-up almost all sexual assaults and rapes of women and children with disabilities

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – Former NYS employee & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled within state and privately operated group homes are in the many thousands. As the wide-scale criminal cover-ups of these sex crimes continue, Governor Andrew Cuomo has also been illegally placing convicted level 2 and level 3 sex offenders and felons to live in group homes for the developmentally disabled. According to the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) which is directly under the control of Cuomo, this has been going on for years.

https://www.mass.gov/service-details/prevalence-of-violence

The Jonathan Carey Foundation has done enough research to date to advise the general public that this is happening on a wide-scale basis and is without question a state-wide problem that directly places our most vulnerable population at grave risk of being sexual assaulted and raped.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViRj7sz6NOU&t=3s

How anyone in any position of power could be part of such a corruption scheme is beyond comprehension and unconscionable. Who is worse, the sexual predators and pedophiles like Larry Nassar, or those that literally assist and protect the sexual predators so they can continue to rape, violate and severely damage more lives? We all know the answer.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation is also uncovering another scheme of epic proportion in which most individuals that are raping little boys and girls in New York State are getting minuscule sentences or only probation.

Here are two of dozens of examples that we have located so far to give you an idea of what is going on in New York State;

A 68 year old male level 3 sex offender with high risk of re-offending getting 3 years probation, his victim was a 13 years old girl.

A 46 year old male level 3 sex offender with high risk of re-offending getting 5 years probation, his victim was a 6 year old girl.

New York State penal law 260.25 says it is a felony crime to endanger the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person, yet the Cuomo administration is ignoring this law.

“A person is guilty of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree when he knowingly acts in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical, mental or moral welfare of a person who is unable to care for himself or herself because of physical disability, mental disease or defect.

Endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree is a class E felony.”

The Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing these illegal and extremely dangerous matters to the forefront and has located close to 70 sexual predators so far from minimal research to date, from a partial list of facilities and group homes. Statistically, it appears that the numbers of convicted sex offenders already placed into group homes throughout New York State may be in the hundreds.

All New York State District Attorney’s have been asked by Michael Carey the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation to intervene to stop these illegal placements, ensure the removal of all sexual predators from group homes with the disabled and to prosecute the individuals involved in committing these crimes.

The State has acknowledged that they have been placing convicted level 2 and level 3 sex offenders that have a clear and known risk of re-offending to live in group homes. The State of New York is attempting to claim that they can protect disabled residents in these group homes from being sexually assaulted and raped, which is absolutely ludicrous and simply impossible.

"Group homes are for our most vulnerable people with disabilities, not for convicted sex offenders and known sexual predators." – Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/new-york-pay-3m-family-boy-molested-group-home-article-1.2977392

Literally, almost all reported cases of sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled are covered-up internally because Governor Cuomo set up an internal hotline to bypass the 911 call systems to keep local police out of the picture. The State of New York gives facilities and group homes all the time and ability to clean up crime scenes and destroy critical evidence of sexual assaults and rapes. Federal authorities have been asked to swiftly intervene.

If you would like to help advocate and protect our most vulnerable and help fight to end this extreme corruption, please consider making a tax deductible gift to the Jonathan Carey Foundation. Thank you.

OAN Exposes Cuomo Sex Abuse Scandal & Justice Center Corruption

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives.

As NY Governor Andrew Cuomo hoped the sex offender and sexual abuse cover-ups remained hidden, the Jonathan Carey Foundation and OAN open Pandora’s Box

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – Former NYS employee & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a nutshell the Pandora’s Box being opened up reveals the evil, the corruption, the wide-scale sexual assaults and rapes of people with disabilities, the cover-ups of almost all sex crimes and the main motive being Medicaid fraud. A number of top New York State officials are directly involved and must be held accountable and Federal authorities have been asked to swiftly intervene.

New York State’s mental health care system which appears to be the most expensive possibly in the world remains extremely dangerous and deadly. The sexual abuse within Cuomo’s agencies and group homes are astronomical in scope, 1,300 reported cases of sexual abuse within the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) alone annually. According to a well recognized study and report called Prevalence of Violence, it is claimed that only 3% of these sexual assaults will ever be reported, so multiply 1,300 times 33 to approximately get the real numbers of sexual assaults and rapes occurring within Cuomo’s agency.

“The state’s mental health care system is likened to an animal house, rampant with sexual assaults and rapes; it is a corrupt system that is totally out of control.” – Michael Carey – Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate

https://www.mass.gov/service-details/prevalence-of-violence

Hardly any safety and abuse prevention measures have been put in place to protect the most vulnerable from being sexually assaulted or raped. New York State’s main mission is not to put people with disabilities first or provide them safe care and services, but is instead to discriminate against the disabled, to treat them unequally and to use them for financial exploitation. Massive amounts of Medicaid dollars, the peoples tax dollars, are going to enrich well connected political people and entities. New York State continues to cover-up most of the severe damages to precious human beings to keep their Medicaid fraud ponzi scheme going. Well just like Bernie Madoff was finally caught, now Governor Cuomo and his administration are being caught and exposed.

One America News Network called Michael Carey, a well- known and well respected Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate, as well as the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation, seeking answers surrounding the Cuomo sex abuse scandal. The floodgates were opened further and the wide-scale corruption and the criminal cover-ups of almost all reported sexual assaults by Governor Cuomo’s fraudulent Justice Center abuse hotline were further exposed.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViRj7sz6NOU&t=3s

On top of the wide-scale discrimination and civil rights atrocities, the Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing to light the illegal and extremely dangerous placements of convicted sex offenders into group homes. Dozens of sexual predators, level 2 and level 3 sex offenders have been located living in facilities and group homes throughout New York State from a partial list of facilities and minimum research. Statistically, the numbers appear to be in the many hundreds.

Walking On Thin Ice in the Arctic – Raising Awareness for the Cholera Crisis in Yemen

The Yemen Cholera Crisis has taken the lives of 2,300 in the last year

Guinness World Record holder to travel to the Arctic Circle in Winter to raise money for the Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Holiday Swap is raising awareness and financial support to purchase and distribute essential medicine in Yemen to combat the cholera epidemic, which is currently affecting over 1 million people and has already taken the lives of over 2,300 individuals in the past year.

https://www.gofundme.com/yemens-cholera-crisis

To kickstart the initiative, James Asquith, Holiday Swap CEO, will be travelling as close to the North Pole as possible (80 degrees north of the Arctic Circle, where it will be dark for 24 hours a day) on November 26, 2018 to shed light on the public health crisis in Yemen.

After Asquith officially became the youngest person to travel to all 196 countries in the world, he said of the fundraising project that “the purpose of this trip is to push my limits, as I trek through the Arctic during the 24-hour dark winter, and raise much needed awareness for the public health crisis that Yemen is currently facing.

“The crisis in Yemen is hugely under reported, and this trip 1,300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle does not come without high risks; however, I am willing to take those risks to highlight this cause.”

The initial goal at Holiday Swap, initiated by the CLO Harley Auerbach, is to raise $50,000 to help fight against a very treatable and preventable disease. All donations are welcome, no matter how big or small. 100% of the contributions will go directly to supporting those suffering in Yemen.

In NY most sexual predators that rape the disabled escape justice

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives

Top Cuomo administration officials directly involved in criminal cover-ups of sexual assaults

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – Former NYS employee & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation is uncovering the rampant sexual abuse within Cuomo’s mental health care system and the wide-scale cover-ups similar to the Catholic Church. Thousands of sexual assaults and rapes are reported to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s abuse hotline and most are never reported to local police or ever criminally investigated. Almost all sex crimes committed against our most vulnerable are never criminally investigated, never reported to county elected district attorneys and will never see a court room.

To give you an idea of how rampant the sexual abuse and cover-ups are it is important to document some key facts. Governor Andrew Cuomo is without question operating his mental agencies almost identical to the Catholic Church, keeping almost everything internal. Less than 1% of sex crimes reported to the fraudulent Justice Center abuse hotline are ever prosecuted. To wrap your mind around the scope of the astronomical and absolute rampant sexual abuse occurring multiply 1,300 sexual assaults times 33 to get the approximate numbers within the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) system annually. OPWDD is only one of six mental health agencies in New York State that internally report sex crimes. State records obtained through Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) by Michael Carey reveal an average of 1,300 reported sexual abuse cases within OPWDD alone and according to a well known study called Prevalence of Violence only 3% of these sexual assaults are ever reported.

https://www.mass.gov/service-details/prevalence-of-violence

Governor Andrew Cuomo set up an internal abuse hotline for people with disabilities, having the audacity to name it the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs (Justice Center) which is doing almost the direct opposite from its name. This is fraudulent whitewash state agency that was set up to cover-up. Governor Andrew Cuomo by law requires mandated reporters and witnesses of sex crimes to report to his abuse hotline, there is no law requiring these sex crimes to be immediately reported to 911 so local police can respond. This is purposeful and this is how the Cuomo administration continues to cover-up almost all reported sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled.

New York State is discriminating against people with disabilities by denying them equal access to 911 first responder medical and police services when they are victims of sex crimes. New York State is denying people with disabilities living outside their family homes their constitutional rights to ‘equal protect of laws.’ One million New Yorkers with disabilities which are the governor’s numbers are being treated unequally and as far lower class citizens and residents similar to the discrimination that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought against.

On top of these wide-scale discrimination and civil rights atrocities, the Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing to light the illegal and extremely dangerous placements of convicted sex offenders into group homes. Dozens of sexual predators, level 2 and level 3 sex offenders have been located living in facilities and group homes throughout New York State from a partial list of facilities and minimum research. Statistically, the numbers appear to be in the hundreds.

Throughout New York State and our country, all sexual predators must be immediately removed from all facilities and group homes that allow them easy access to prey on and sexual assault or rape people with disabilities. This is outrageous and unconscionable that anyone would conceive of such a practice, more less implement it. These practices are obviously a direct danger to all residents, but also a direct danger to staff and the general community. Group homes are scattered throughout our communities and are not locked down facilities, sexual predators can easily leave practically whenever they like. It is important to note that sexual predators and pedophiles sexually assault extremely large numbers of victims according to a State psychologist before they are ever caught.

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of New York State’s mental health care system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."
