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.

Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

Houston, TX – Helen Cook, owner of PrimeStar Publicity and Public Relations, has set up a page on GoFundMe.com for the sole purpose of raising $25,000 US dollars to purchase land and start construction on a building to house fifty Ugandan orphans and a small staff of four.

Even though the Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) must be registered and licensed with the government of Uganda, they receive no support because they are a Christian ministry.

Their daily needs – food, shelter, medical, clothing and education – are provided by a small group of dedicated donors, about eleven, here in the US and one in Australia.

The “LFOM family” is currently housed in a rented facility that was slated to be a motel, in the small village of Jinja, Uganda, East Africa. However, they have already outgrown the facility that they moved into less than two years ago when their numbers were less than forty.

It would be so wonderful for them to have a permanent home; one where they can continue to grow without facing the need to have to move out once again.

If your heart is moved to do so, you can make donations to the building fund at: https://www.gofundme.com/light-for-orphans-building-fund?ssid=819941954&pos=1

Maybe you would like to become a regular donor for the monthly needs of our beautiful family. If so, you can make donations to Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) c/o Helen Cook, 2668 Hwy. 36 S. #127, Brenham, TX 77833.

If you would like more information about LFOM, feel free to contact me either by phone at 903-654-0938 or email, helencook53@yahoo.com.

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.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

11th Annual Clusterbusters Conference Presents Exciting New Research, Advocacy And Treatment Options For Cluster Headache Patients

Austin, TX ― The Clusterbusters 11th Annual Patient Conference, the largest gathering of cluster headache patients in history, will be September 15th-18th
at the Holiday Inn, Austin Midtown. Bringing together patients, their families, doctors and researchers to educate all involved, Clusterbusters also advances research, advocates for improved treatments and collaborates on legislative changes needed to end needless suffering and financial inequality.

Clusterbusters is uniting the voices of the families suffering from this debilitating disease. Cluster headaches, nicknamed “suicide headaches,” have a suicide rate 20 times the national average. The pain is so severe that most people suffering from the disease hide their suffering from family, friends and employers; celebrities and sports figures hide their condition for fear of losing their high-paying jobs.

Clusterbusters is directly involved in supporting exciting new research to be featured during the weekend conference. Presentations on genetic research at McGill University in Montreal, new treatment research studies through Eli Lilly, a psychological burden and quality of life study at the University of West Georgia, non-invasive devices presented by Electrocore, minimally invasive surgical implants conducted by Autonomic Technologies, and psilocybin research in partnership with Yale University and the VA will be included. Inspiration is the theme, highlighted throughout the program, commencing the evening of the 15th with registration and a cocktail hour reception.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Brace For Impact: “Miracle on the Hudson” Survivors Share Their Stories of Near Death and Hope for New Life

What Passengers of Flight 1549 Want Others to Know About Second Chances

Deerfield Beach, FL – On January 15, 2009, the world was mesmerized by “the miracle on the Hudson.” Against all odds, Captain Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger safely landed a plane plunging toward disaster on the river. More amazingly, all 150 passengers
survived—and, for the most part, with nothing worse (physically) than a few bruises
and soggy clothes. At the time, many of us tried to imagine how we would have
those three chilling words—“Brace for impact”—and then, amazingly, been spared from certain death?

A year later, it’s time for a different, perhaps more meaningful story. What happened to these extremely fortunate passengers when they went home? What was it like to return to their families, their jobs, their neighborhoods—everything familiar, but somehow changed? How did they celebrate coming back from the brink of near-death trauma? How did their loved ones respond to the living proof of a miracle? What has been the real impact they braced for, not of the disaster and death they expected, but of the gift of a “new” life?

Intrigued by these and other questions, authors Dorothy Firman and Kevin Quirk set out to find answers—by asking the survivors themselves. The result is an inspiring collection of first-person accounts: Brace For Impact: “Miracle on the Hudson” Survivors Share Their Stories of Near Death and Hope for New Life (HCI Books). Along with the personal stories of 25 men and women profoundly affected by Flight 1549—survivors and first-responders—this volume offers lessons about faith, gratitude, wisdom, healing, love, and transformation for everyone in today’s world of upheaval and challenges.
Readers will hear from parents who believed they would never see their teenagers, toddlers, or a child on the way; an ex-Marine officer, a swimming pool serviceman, a nurse, a TV executive, and a boat pilot; survivors who have publicly spoken about their experiences at churches, schools, businesses, and organizations as large as the American Red Cross, as well as those who have remained private. Through their heartfelt, stirring words, their courageous admissions of fear, their humor and their hope, the contributors reinforce the importance of family, knowing what really matters, and discovering our purpose. Throughout and above all, Brace For Impact stands as a testament to how something good—even something wonderful—can emerge out of crisis and tragedy. And that’s a timely, welcome lesson to inspire and comfort everyone.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Dorothy Firman is the New York Times bestselling co-author of Chicken Soup for the Mother and Daughter Soul, among numerous books. She has worked in the field of psychology and counseling for over thirty years. Kevin Quirk is a former journalist with The Charlotte Observer, among other newspapers, and a prolific ghostwriter and editor.
