FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New App Immerses Thrill Seekers In Fastest Sport On Ice

Port Orange, Florida ― Winter sports fans who crave the speed and intensity of the bobsleigh can now experience the thrills from the pilot’s seat with the Bobsleigh 360 app for Android and iOS.

Users can experience the precision of the team’s climb into the sleigh, the struggle of the push-off, and mind-bending speeds approaching 90 mph as the bobsleigh races down an Olympic bobsleigh track, banking through 15 to 20 heart-stopping turns.

Bobsleigh 360 app features:

• 360-degree video of actual bobsleigh runs
• User-controlled viewpoint during the run
• Support for 2D and VR viewing
• New runs and tracks added as they are available
Bobsleigh 360 is based on a first-of-its-kind VR training tool developed by Raydon Corporation, a military simulation training company, in Port Orange, Florida. Raydon created the training tool to improve the safety and performance of bobsleigh teams. Bobsleigh 360 gives coaches a 360-degree view of a pilot’s high-speed run, where every millisecond counts. It can be viewed on a tablet or on a VR headset for a fully immersive experience. The Latvian bobsleigh team, silver medal winners at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, has incorporated the tool into their training regimen in preparation for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Raydon has donated the training tool to Latvia and other countries.

PACAW: Changing A Culture Of Poverty And Corruption To One Of Hope Through Education For Children In Africa

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety)

While ‘Paying it Forward’ might be just a catch-phrase for some, not so for Dr. Sylvanus A. Ayeni. A retired neurosurgeon and former associate professor of neurosurgery at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, NE, Dr. Ayeni was born in Nigeria and witnessed first-hand how poverty and corruption robs children in Africa of their chance at an education and fulfilling life. To help change this he founded the non-profit organization Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch (PACAW) in 2007 and, together with a team of dedicated members of the local community, they are nurturing a new generation of African leaders through access to a different educational culture.

Please read the following press release and let me know if I may schedule an interview with Dr. Ayeni. We believe many in your audience would be interested in hearing of the work being done by this remarkable organization. If you would like to run this story, we would be happy to send you a .jpg of Dr. Ayeni. Thank you for your time.

PACAW: Changing A Culture Of Poverty And Corruption To One Of Hope Through Education For Children In Africa

Bethesda, MD ― The mission of Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch (PACAW), is to nurture and develop a new generation of African leaders via access to a different educational culture at the primary and secondary school levels. In providing the infrastructure and staff for quality education for pupils in poor underserved communities Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch promotes change.

“We can help develop better leaders when early education focuses on turning the gaze of the children away from avarice, extortion, selfishness, the vain, and obsession with accumulation of material wealth.” Dr. Sylvanus A. Ayeni is president of the nonprofit organization. “This type of education culture at the basic and secondary school levels would prepare young people for leadership that champions the development of their nations from within, and embraces living for a higher purpose.

“We’d like to expand our programs to several states in Nigeria,” says Dr. Ayeni. “In particular we would like a presence in the delta area and the northeastern part of the country where education has been brutally decimated by stone age ideologues.” Later, they plan to establish similar programs in other countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Biennial PACAW Leadership Academy is the second component of PACAW’s program. The Academy is for community leaders, the teachers and interested young graduates from the country’s tertiary educational institutions. The lessons and the values learned are then passed on to the children.

The third aspect of PACAW initiatives is the Community Economic Empowerment Program, intended to lift up the community economically. The goal is to transfer the PACAW programs to the community, the local government and perhaps, the state government within about ten years. This is designed to break the cycle of dependency which is so deeply entrenched in many nations of Sub-Saharan Africa.

PACAW is governed by members of an all-volunteer board in the USA and Africa. Members of the Organizing Committees of the programs at the grassroots level in Africa are all volunteers as well. Your assistance in helping us to get generous donations to this cause would be greatly appreciated. Currently, at least 95% of donations go directly to the village (community) in Africa for the projects to fulfill the mission of PACAW, Inc.

Dr. Ayeni is a retired neurosurgeon and former associate professor of neurosurgery at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska. Born in Nigeria, he has studied and taught around the world. For more information, please visit: www.pacaw.org.

Day of Wrath: A Time Sensitive Warning To Protect Our Schools And Transportation Systems From The Threat Of An Attack By ISIS

Black Mountain, NC, William R. Forstchen, PhD, New York Times bestselling author, professor, and military history expert, sheds a critical light on the ruthless offensive conducted by ISIS as well as its direct threat to bring their campaign of terror to the continental United States in his new release, Day of Wrath.

Turn on any news station or social media outlet and ISIS, an extremist Islamic sect and offshoot of Al-Qaeda, proudly displays its barbaric acts for the entire world to see. The images are not easily forgotten: mass executions of prisoners, beheading of children, cutting of throats and laughing as they bleed to death, and mass crucifixions of Christians.

“The campaign by ISIS, in its seizure of northern Iraq, is one of cold-blooded, systematic genocide. Their leader has promised that their next target is us, the United States; our civilians and our children,” says Dr. Forstchen. “We recovered from the terrible blows of Pearl Harbor and 9/11. But the methods of terror practiced by ISIS could be a shock our nation might never overcome. The storm is coming. It is not a question of ‘if,’ it is a question of ‘when,’ and we must prepare for it now.”

Forstchen, author of more than forty books, presents in fictional form a horrifying but likely scenario of attack. His work is based on an Islamic terror attack against a Russian school in 2004 which left at least three hundred children dead, as well as the methods of terror strikes used by ISIS and other such groups. This is his first work to go directly to ebook self-publication because of his conviction that this story must reach the public immediately and should be used as a platform for debate as to how to respond and prevent this terrorist threat.

William R. Forstchen, PhD, is a noted expert historian and public speaker and has been interviewed on FOX News, C-SPAN, and Coast to Coast on topics ranging from history to technology and cultural issues, to space technology development, to security threats. He is a New York Times bestselling author and holds a doctoral degree from Purdue University with a specialization in military history and technology.

Investigation Discovery’s New Series ‘Last Seen Alive’ Will Feature Ali Lowitzer, Missing Young Woman From Texas, On June 8th Episode

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Spring, TX, June 5, 2014 – Children disappear from the streets of America every day; in fact, 900,000 a year – that’s one every forty seconds!

Many of these missing children are kidnapped, murdered, or end up in the hellish world of human trafficking and can’t understand why no one has come looking for them. We cannot ever give up looking for them – they depend on all of us to bring them home.

Alexandria (Ali) Lowitzer is one of those missing children. On Sunday, June 8th, at 9 pm EST, Ali will be featured in the second episode of Investigation Discovery’s new series, ‘Last Seen Alive.’ The series follows the emotional journey of 12 families who chase down every lead, never giving up on the search for their lost loved ones.

New satellite technology maps undersea floor and charts GPS locations of lost and sunken treasure ships

Marco Island, FL,  — Can the new discovery of five ancient shipwrecks deep off the Italian coast and the mysterious metal ingots found onboard be linked to a recently discovered satellite technology? Have all the lost and sunken shipwrecks untouched for centuries been found by an orbiting satellite? Can the find of the SS Mantola shipwreck near the coast of Ireland with $18 million of Silver be linked to a new and highly secret underwater discovery system? Have all the other lost treasure ships around the world already been found and the ultimate treasure map created?

Radio telescope technology has been used for years to determine specific elements on the periodic table by recognizing individual wavelength returns. This ground-based technology launched into space in a satellite and focused upon the world’s oceans could possibly reveal all the lost maritime mysteries missing for centuries, especially the shipwrecks with a highly conductible metal such as gold onboard.

“Lost and Found” is an exciting book by Captain Tom Williams that has been receiving many incredible reviews and national acclaim, but has someone really hacked into a geological survey satellite and found all the lost shipwrecks that still contain gold? Does the ultimate treasure map now exist? Are all the lost treasure fleets undiscovered for centuries now identified and located with specific GPS coordinates?

Two British scientists pioneer a means of exploring for hidden oil reserves using a geological survey satellite; however, they find a treasure worth much more than black gold—real gold in every lost and sunken treasure ship in the world’s oceans.

Together with a beautiful dive master and salvage expert the treasures of antiquity are all there for the taking—if the adventuresome trio can just stay alive long enough, fleeing a madman from the exotic tropical waters of South Florida to the depths of the Black Sea in Europe

TIP SHEET:

From–Steve Alten, NY Times Best-Selling author of MEG & The SHELL GAME about Lost and Found: “A promising debut novel that combines a Pirates of the Caribbean flavor with 21st century technology. Perfect for sipping Pina Coladas on a tropical azure shoreline.”
