Ecosa Institute’s Fall 2017 Ecological Design Certificate Program (EDCP) is at maximum occupancy

Ecosa’s Tuition-Free Certificate Program has sparked unprecedented interest, registration for Spring 2018 EDC Program is open to the public.

PRESCOTT, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2017 / — The Ecosa Institute has selected 15 lucky applicants to participate in their three month emersion program into the theory and practice of Ecological Design. Out of 32 applications received by June 16th, 15 were rigorously selected based on their background and desire to create positive environmental change. Ecosa’s Ecological Design Certificate (EDC) program is being offered free for a limited time only, however the waiting list is growing daily. Ecosa believes that such critical knowledge should be free to committed students. “We want to reach students whose commitment to the environment is un-wavering, have the ability to think critically, and perform in-depth research. The goal was to find students, regardless of income, who are most likely to create positive change in the world,” said Tony Brown, founder of Ecosa Institute.
In 2017, in response to the Trump administrations abandonment of the COP21 Paris Agreement, the organization launched a revolutionary program to provide tuition-free education to students at their campus in Prescott, AZ. "The information gained from our program is imperative and the issues we are facing are time sensitive" writes Tony Brown. Registration for the Spring 2018 program has recently opened and the organization anticipates another flood of applications.

Experience the World: Culture & Education at the Dinner Table

PORTLAND, OR, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2017 / — Ahnnyeonghase-yo. Hej. Namaste. Hello. A greeting in any language implies the same thing; yet what makes each of them unique is the culture surrounding these everyday words. And each of these cultures are breathtaking to get to know; providing a spark of inspiration and warmth in our lives. ETC offers such an opportunity – hosting a student would mean to take in an international student for a brief term as a member of the family. Host families and students are encouraged to engage with each other as warmly and welcoming as possible; exchanging their respective cultures through pictures, stories, food, and affection.

The philosophy of ETC is to promote international goodwill and understanding through international student exchange experiences. It is our staunch belief that participating as a host to a student needing a home to stay will foster understanding and friendship between international cultures.

Education at the Dinner Table:
While in school one may memorize the various gendered pronouns of the Spanish language, or learn how to differentiate between the many homophones present in the English language; true learning of culture and life happens socially. This is especially true for life at home – whether it be through conversation at the dinner table, a small thank you whilst sharing the chores, or through showing each other humorous videos, daily life in a host family will impact the core of each exchange student and expand their worldview. These lessons are not only restricted to the student; families as well will learn about the many nuances present in a strange culture, and change the way they perceive their world.

Travelling Without Leaving Home:
A ticket to Iceland may be out of your price range; a week in Japan may be unthinkable when considering how expensive hotels are. Hosting negates all of these costs and difficulties that arise from planning a trip abroad, as families are allowed to bring a small part of this foreign culture straight into their living room. No longer will Korea or Honduras be a mere name on the map, but a dear second home that elicits countless warm memories spent with your student.

Foreign Partners:
ETC closely works with carefully screened, experienced agents that work diligently in each of the countries that offer students for hosting. Each agent painstakingly screens and examines each of the students and offers them with an orientation so that the students will be able to adjust to the United States with minimal difficulty. When the student finally arrives stateside, our partner organizations will always be available to act as a friendly liaison and counselor between the host family, ETC, and the student’s natural parents.

Special Activities:
We are highly involved with each of the host families and students that are part of the ETC family. ETC hosts fall welcome parties, monthly local activities, themed holiday parties, five (optional) trips every year, and a spring farewell picnic – all of which are available to ETC Local Coordinators, host families, and students, as a way to encourage bonding within a family-like atmosphere.

American Public High Schools:
ETC maintains a strict standard for those students who will be attending American public high schools on a J-1 visa. Each student will be placed within such a high school in their homestay community and will be required to take classes in English and American History or Civics. They are not permitted to take ESL or English immersion classes. Those students who are unable to maintain a C average are required to hire a tutor at their own expense.

Financial Responsibilities:
Host families are not required to take on the burden of the student’s financial expenses. Every student possesses comprehensive medical insurance, and are required to pay for their own personal expenses, which include but are not limited to school activity charges, class fees, clothing expenses, travel expenses, entertainment allowances, bus passes, long distance phone charges, and lunches purchased at the school. Each host family is considered as a volunteer, and are not expected to pay for such student expenses.

Learning About the World, at Home:
Each ETC foreign exchange student is brave and willing to leave family and friends for nearly ten months to broaden their horizons and learn about the culture of the United States. By considering a new short term addition to the family, host families can help courageous students out immensely, whilst learning similar things to the student themselves.

ETC is now accepting host family applications for both five-month and ten-month students. Each student speaks a proficient level of English, has been carefully screened, and will attend the host family’s local high school. Each student arrives fully covered by medical insurance and possesses their own spending money.

About Education, Travel & Culture:
Education, Travel & Culture is a non-profit [501 (c)(3)] educational exchange organization. Its purpose is to promote international understanding and goodwill by providing high quality educational and cultural exchange programs in the United States and abroad. ETC provides inbound program opportunities for high school students throughout the world to study in an American high school and live with an American family.

Music Therapist Christine Korb to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

Music therapy is the elegant marriage between music as art and music as science.”

— Christine Korb

PORTLAND, OREGON, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2017 / — For many of us, music is therapy. It’s the soundtrack to our lives: it helps us relax; it excites us; it moves us; it heals us.

But the purpose of music is to communicate. Sadly, there are many individuals for whom communication is their greatest challenge. For these individuals, music therapy can serve as the bridge to connection because music is so universal.

Music therapists work as musicians and clinicians with almost every imaginable clientele, from premature babies and children on the autism spectrum to veterans and seniors struggling with dementia. And their results have been nothing short of miraculous.

“Music therapy is the elegant marriage between music as art and music as science,” says music therapist Christine Korb. “We utilize the power of music to accomplish non-musical goals. It’s ultimately about improving the quality of life for any individual no matter their circumstances.

While most music therapists begin as musicians and transition into the clinical social work, Korb began as a young social worker in Chicago. She says she came to music therapy through the back door as a songwriter and went back to school for a degree in music composition.

“I needed to do something with the healing powers of music,” recalls Korb. “It led me in the direction of the depths of what music is all about: the elements of how it affects us.”

Though Korb still works as a clinician, she is currently director of the music therapy program at Pacific University, where she teaches the next generation of music therapists. Music therapists are trained to be competent in piano, guitar and voice, as well as whatever their primary instrument may be.

Korb is also the author of The Music Therapy Profession, a collection of essays from her students over the years about why they chose to become music therapists.

“Many musicians in their hearts are actually music therapists and they don’t even realize it,” says Korb. “Not everyone who is especially talented at music is going to be successful as a professional musician. But there are alternative avenues to pursue with your great talent: meaningful, noble work. Word is getting out that music therapy can really help.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Christine Korb in an interview with Jim Masters on August 2nd at 4pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on August 9th at 4pm EDT.

Banknote Market Status and Outlook by Regions, Opportunities and Forecast

Global Banknote Market

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, July 31, 2017 / —


WiseGuyReports published new report, titled “Global Banknote Market Report”.

Banknote is a promissory note, made by a bank, which is payable to the bearer on demand. It is also known as a ‘bill’ or a ‘note’. Historically, the banknotes were issued by the commercial bank but now, the production and distribution of new banknotes, and destruction of the unfit banknotes is the responsibility of the central bank of the respective countries. The demand for banknotes and substrate is fulfilled by state print works (SPW), state paper mills (SPM) and handful number of commercial print and paper manufacturers. SPWs and SPMs can also turn in to commercial providers to cater the unmet demand for banknotes.

The key factors driving the growth of the banknote market are financial instability of the economy and GDP of the economy. Some of the noteworthy trends and developments of this industry are longer lasting currency, the increasing market share of durable banknote substrates, adoption of polymer banknotes, proven polymer integration and new banknotes developments. However, the expansion of banknote market is hindered by rise of digital or cashless payment, secured production of banknotes and overcapacity.

The report “Global Banknote Market” provides an in-depth analysis of the banknote market on a global scale discussing its major segments and also provides detailed information regarding the key regional markets. The major trends, growth drivers as well as issues being faced by the industry are being presented in this report.

Faith-based App to Help Children Learn the Bible

We are setting the stage for biblical training & individual achievement.”

— Vicky Elizabeth Lynch

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2017 / — The advancement of technology affords designers the opportunity to develop innovative and exciting new apps. The faith-based community is no exception. Vicky E. Lynch, an entrepreneur and visionary, took her love of the Bible, education, and her knowledge of technology and melded it into a ground-breaking, inspirational app just for kids ages 3-12 years old. The app motivates children to learn the Bible through 41 memorable poems, beautiful illustrations and a licensed partnership with Psalty Kids Co! to teach 26 scriptures with "The Bible Alphabet Song." The new app, Theo & Izzy the Word Seekers, is currently available as a free download through the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store. A video highlighting the app's features is available here:

Lynch came up with the idea for the app while putting her children to bed. "I realized that I could consolidate stories broken into several chapters in an interesting way that didn't feel overwhelming when I wanted them to sleep. Part two of the vision came when I formed a curriculum for children's Bible studies. I shared it with my children. With joy, they learned about the Bible, but wanted something visual like a video game. Instead, I decided to create an app," says Vicky. With a background in software development, Vicky conceptualized much of the creative and technical aspect of the app.

To complement the app, there is a story book which follows the stories. Children will enjoy the thrilling adventures that characters Theo and Izzy take them on. With characters that are easily relatable, children will connect with them immediately. Lynch, who serves as founder, director, product manager and writer of the app, through her organization, Words from a Childlike Heart, hopes that Theo & Izzy the Word Seekers encourages children to live out their own personal Bible experiences. With a goal to teach children valuable lessons found in each story, Vicky aims to make biblical narratives sensational and thought-provoking for kids. Through original music by 1 Vision Music Productions and narration by Voice Over Artist, Lisa Biggs, the presence of children makes the app keenly targeted to its intended audience. Feeling a call to spread the gospel and encourage literacy in this unique way, Vicky wants to ignite a spark in children for the Bible and for reading. She also hopes that Theo and Izzy serve as role models for kids.

The music and books are available for purchase on

Florida remembers the wisdom of Ethel Levine, a woman who lived to age 101

Gary Springer & Ethel Levine

Book published by her grandson, Gary Springer, in her memory.

Don’t you wish that you didn’t have to learn life’s lesson the hard way?”

— Gary Springer

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, PINELLAS, July 30, 2017 / — Wisdom of a Life Well-Lived
by Ethel Pearson Levine/Gary Springer
Hardcover ISBN: 978-0692754269

Ethel Pearson Levine lived to be 101 years old.
During her lifetime she gathered a unique perspective on life’s big issues. She was a mother, grandmother, guidance counselor, and teacher who lived a basic, yet rewarding life, with much to say about how life should be lived.

Don’t you wish you didn’t have to learn life’s lesson the hard way?
Over a period of 30 years, Ethel Pearson Levine wrote monthly articles for the Sunrise Lakes community in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Her articles embrace universal subjects from marriage and divorce to relationships, aging, and death. She took on subjects that affect us all. Within each article, there’s a message, an affirmation, for living a meaningful life. This book is a collection of selected articles from that monthly news booklet.
Although this book is targeted to seniors, it will appeal to readers of all ages.

A student that Ethel Levine had in second grade at PS 128, Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, over 50 years ago had this to say:
“I just finished reading the book. I loved it and found it so inspiring. Your grandmother and my 2nd grade teacher was one very special lady.

I am so thankful that you found me and shared the book with me. I want to wish you lots of success with your book – a ‘must read’ for all seniors.”

About the author:
Ethel Pearson Levine, aged 101 years, died on January 25th, 2014, at her home in Clearwater, Florida. She was born December 12th, 1912, in Brooklyn, New York, to Rachel and Hyman Pearson. She was predeceased by siblings, Naomi, Nathan, Charles, Michael, Gladys, Seymour, and Bertram. She was married to Richard Levine on May 30th, 1936, until his death on October 10th, 1995. She graduated from Brooklyn College with her Bachelor’s degree in 1933 and received a Master’s degree from Bank Street School of Education. She worked as an elementary school teacher and guidance counselor until 1975. She was an avid handball player until the age of 50. At that point she began to pursue her passion for tennis and continued playing until the age of 95, after winning several tennis competitions. In addition, she loved word games and puzzles including Scrabble, Boggle, crosswords, and the daily jumble. She also participated in and then led a rap group in Sunrise, Florida, and wrote a column for the Sunrise Laker. She was an eternal optimist with boundless energy, patience, kindness, and tolerance.

Her book can be purchased from BookBaby in print or e-book format:
