DORNIE, HIGHLANDS, SCOTLAND, December 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Indian Summer in the Scottish Highlands
• Dornie headquartered Dreamharvest partners with award-winning India based Edtech company Aginitio Education, poising MageQuill for further international success.
• Dreamharvest was almost unable to handle its amazing success story until a creative approach paved the way for a million new users before the onset of summer.

Dornie, Scotland, 31 December 2018 – a start-up based in the Scottish Highlands developed its creative writing platform in order to get more young voices heard. In the year of young people, the subscription-based writing and publishing platform, MageQuill, is in touch with today’s youth, helping them to unleash their creativity, write about today's issues, their concerns, their thoughts and ideas, without boundaries within an online community of peers.

This new way of robust interaction is called Creativity 5.0 after the highest tier of societal development. Creativity is making inroads in education, and wellness all around the world, complementing computerization and AI.

MageQuill as a product became a success, though handling the scaling from its remote corner of the Scottish Highlands proved more problematic. Using a bit of its own creative efforts, the right solution in the form of Agnitio Education was unveiled. Two countries and two passions came together to ensure delivery and a new and exciting expansion.

Dreamharvest CEO, Marianne Rugard Jarvstrat said: “Brilliant stories from passionate writers don’t have borders, so we need to be there for them, wherever they are in the world. MageQuill can now be available for all writers with a passion so we are excited to work with Agnitio Education and their incredible team in making this journey happen.”

Agnitio Education is already well established as an international edtech company, and has already proven that they can scale. As a recent startup themselves they have retained the speed to adapt to new frontiers and the passion to follow it through.

Agnitio CEO Kartik Sharma explains: “We are very excited by the idea of fostering creativity and innovation in young people. We believe the world would be a better place when young people are empowered and can solve problems creatively. We are proud to partner with MageQuill in achieving this dream.”

On the last days of the year of young people and just in time for the start of the month of creativity, it leaves us time to appreciate that despite the tough economic climate and rural solitude, creativity and passion are what rings in the new year.

Mossytop Dreamharvest Ltd, trading as Dreamharvest, owns the trademarks MageQuill and Bombadil Publishing, and is headquartered in Dornie in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and is internationalising its products on a global scale. Dreamharvest works closely with education Scotland to bring creative writing to Scotland, and likewise the All Indian Council for Technical Education, AICTE, to enhance the creative learning for their students at their 10,000+ colleges.

Dr. Paul Abell, Beverly Hills Healthcare Consultant, Draws Upon Personal Experiences in New Book

“After a lifetime career in the field of alternative healthcare, I found myself facing a challenge when I chose to become a father at age 65.” – Dr. Paul Abell

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Paul Abell, an accomplished healthcare consultant and practitioner, has released a powerful book of wisdom on Amazon and Kindle. Entitled, "Joy is . . . 365 Keys to Longevity," the book is a synthesis of profound teachings from religion, philosophy, psychology and spirituality regarding the pathway to creating joy in a person’s life, which modern research has shown to be the key to longevity. There are 365 succinct transformational concepts on which readers can contemplate or meditate each day.

“The book was born out of the love for my child,” explains Abell, “After a lifetime career in the field of alternative healthcare and longevity, I found myself facing a unique challenge when I chose to become a father at age 65.”

Abell explains that he needed to enhance the possibilities of living long enough to raise his child to manhood. His intense search for the ultimate keys to longevity revealed that “Joy” is the fundamental dynamic common to most centenarians. In sharing the profound principles which foster a joyous life, he simultaneously leaves a blue print for his son to live a spiritually ethical life in his new book. This timely collection of transformational principles has been described as the “Tao Te Ching of Longevity.”

“Dr. Abell has done an excellent job in taking his life experience, research and the knowledge from the great teachers and distilling it down to the key to a long life,” states Steve G., a reader on Amazon, “Joy, and how to understand what joy is, along with daily messages of what that is to be used for is my daily inspiration!”

For example, one passage in the book states that: “Joy is having unwavering trust in a loved one; for without trust, love cannot be more than a fiery passion unable to survive precarious uncertainty.” Another section describes how: “Joy is having learned that to worry excessively every day is a surefire method of reducing the number of days a person will have left in which they can still worry.”

Dr. Paul Abell has been a healthcare consultant and practitioner for more than 45 years. He has blended the use of Voice Dialogue Psychology of Selves consciousness work with Asian medicine into his own unique system of attaining wellness and longevity. Now semi-retired and living in Lake Arrowhead California with his wife and young child, he continues to explore the realms of psychology, philosophy and spirituality.

“I think this book offers a fantastic way to start your day,” states KMA, another reader on Amazon, “with 365 simple yet profound concepts to meditate on, one for each day of the year, one cannot help but feel uplifted and joyful afterwards. Paul Abell has created a simple method to add joy and years to our lives by helping us to focus on the things that really matter.”

How will you celebrate your birthday?

Celebrating 400 years of African American contributions to this country

Each year beginning in 1619 Africans fought for their survival, and most of all fought for their humanity.”

— Ted Ellis

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, December 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every year of our life we get a chance to celebrate a wonderful milestone, our birthday! Birthdays are special days to reflect on our past experiences and accomplishments while looking toward the future. Looking back over the years, we realize there were challenging moments and circumstances that we had to face, but, we grew, we became better because of those obstacles. We became a bit older and a bit wiser.

Birthdays are impactful and special, something we instinctively want to share with others, with our family, and with friends. Everyone gathers together to share stories, memorable stories, stories that shaped who we are, stories of our past that enlighten, invigorate, and even empower. Our birthdays provide an opportunity for us to bond, one to another. Our birthdays come and go, yet with every moment that passes, we never forget our history or our journey.

In 1619, the White Lion ship flying the Dutch flag carried on board 20 or so odd enslaved Africans to the English colonies at Point Comfort, VA., currently known as Fort Monroe National Monument. First known as “The Gibraltar of the Chesapeake” and later as the “Freedom Fortress,” Fort Monroe has a storied history in the defense of our country and its struggle for freedom. It was a stronghold for the Union Army and a place of freedom for enslaved Africans.

Our landing at Point Comfort marked a long chapter of enslavement of Africans throughout this nation, and it was not until 1865 that the enslaved became free men and women. Each year beginning in 1619 Africans fought for their survival, and most of all fought for their humanity. Our survival through periods of Emancipation, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, and post-Civil Rights continue to prove our resilience in the fight for humanity, justice, and equality. Each year we reflect upon our progress, the lessons learned and triumphs earned.

Our birthdays are special! We celebrate what we have accomplished over a period of 400 years. The inventions that advance our livelihood, the medicines that cure our diseases, and the methodologies that improve our agriculture. We are a people of deep faith with unshakable trust in God, and as freed Africans, we constructed churches, schools, colleges, universities, roads, and cities. We were and continue to be the architects of our communities and we celebrate that. From the bellows of slave ships to working in the fields of cotton, rice, sugar and tobacco, and then becoming literate, advancing ourselves as inventors, teachers, preachers, politicians, nurses, doctors, scientists, scholars, entrepreneurs, culinary chefs, composers of music, the arts to our excellence in athletics. We celebrate all our accomplishments.

The year 2019 reflects 400 years since those 20 or so odd enslaved Africans arrived in Point Comfort, Virginia in 1619. It is a year to commemorate and pay homage to our African ancestors for enduring and ensuring an existence for us today. Although there are continued struggles and challenges we will recognize all of our accomplishments and celebrate those achievements on our birthday.

The Department of the Interior and the National Park Service has appointed the 400 Years of African History Commission and charged it with planning, developing and carrying out programs and activities throughout our 50 United States. It is my honor to serve on the Commission and help guide those activities over the next year.

2019 is a very special year, and I will celebrate my personal birthday by honoring my African ancestors. I will commemorate the significance of their sacrifice, and in so doing, I will live a life of hope, purpose, and promise focused on forging a better future for all of us. I will recognize those who have helped me in my personal journey and lastly, I will continue to pursue my passion and share that passion with others.

Most importantly I am asking everyone next year…How will you celebrate your birthday?
1619-2019

Respectfully submitted by,

Ted Ellis Commissioner of the 400 Years of African-American History Commission, National Juneteenth Art Ambassador, Pigment International Advisor, Museum Studies Graduate Candidate, Artist & Cultural Historian

SafeSport Director Regis Becker Named as Interim CEO as Shellie Pfohl Steps Down

Move Marks a New Chapter for the Center in Development and Growth

DENVER, COLO., UNITED STATES, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Shellie Pfohl, CEO of the U.S. Center for SafeSport (the Center), a national non-profit focused on ending all forms of abuse in sport, informed the Board of Directors on December 7 of her intention to step down from her role as President and CEO at the end of 2018. As a part of her commitment to the Center, Pfohl remained through the end of the year to ensure a seamless and effective transition to Interim CEO Regis Becker, a member of the SafeSport Board of Directors.

“I deeply believe that our nation’s sport culture must change if we are to see athlete well-being at its centerpiece — that’s what the U.S. Center for SafeSport is all about,” said Pfohl. “It was a tremendous honor to launch and grow an organization that is unlike any other. I am grateful to those who support the Center and aided my efforts along the way, including an amazing staff, and especially the brave athletes whose stories will always inspire me.”

Pfohl joined the Center in November 2016 to guide its official launch in March of 2017. During her two years with the nonprofit, Pfohl played a role in getting the organization to where it is today and presided over its tremendous growth, including assembling a team of highly-qualified professionals. Since opening its doors less than two years ago, the Center obtained Congressional Authorization, received more than 1,800 reports, issued over 400 disciplinary actions and made nearly 300 individuals permanently ineligible, a testament to the need for the Center and its important work.

Becker began his career in law enforcement where he served as a detective and FBI special agent. He is best known for his role in launching Penn State University’s Ethics and Compliance program after Sandusky, where he oversaw athletics integrity, university ethics, compliance issues, youth programs and the university’s ethics and compliance hotline. Previously, Becker served in executive compliance and security positions with Fortune 500 companies.

“Working alongside Shellie until the end of the year prepared me for my temporary role at the Center, and I’m excited to assist the talented and motivated team these next few months,” said Becker. “Our mission is relevant and critical; I’m ready to jump in to help move this organization into a new phase of growth and development.”

“The Center’s Board thanks Shellie for the dedication, passion, and enthusiasm she gave to the Center and wish her the best in her pursuits,” said Frank Marshall, Chairman of the Board. “The Board and team are focused on a new chapter of growth, initiatives and development and remain committed to creating a national sport culture centered on athlete well-being.”

The Center expects to name a new permanent CEO early next year.

While there isn’t a fixed standard that decides what will be included in an annual physical, there are some things one should expect, notes Paul Norwood MD

Valley Endocrine and Research (N/A:N/A)

an annual medical examination is a comprehensive physical test that can help doctors understand your physical health and wellbeing through and through.”

— Dr. Paul Norwood, Valley Endocrine clinic in Fresno, California

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Paul Norwood, a practising physician and medical researcher with a nation-wide reputation, based in Fresno, California, has published an article about the importance of an annual physical exam for your continued well-being. The complete review is available on the Blog of Dr. Norwood at https://PaulNorwoodMD.blogspot.com/

If you’re like most people, seeing the doctor when you’re feeling alright is probably the last thing on your mind. Needless to say, however, even though most people don’t see the doctor unless they feel like it’s absolutely necessary, this approach is extremely dangerous and can delay diagnosis of underlying conditions.

Additionally, since the symptoms of most conditions and diseases do not appear until the situation has become considerably worse, getting an annual medical exam is a great idea to figure out what exactly is going on with your
body, and make the right changes to your lifestyle to prevent complications.

Still not convinced of the importance of annual medical examinations? Here are a few more reasons that can help change your mind about medical examinations and convince you to see your doctor for an annual physical examination.

Professional Screening

As unfortunate as it may sound, quite a large number of people across the globe resort to self diagnosis. While this approach may work just fine for the common cold or even the flu, other situations such as prolonged stomach pains or muscle spasms should never be ignored.

Since most debilitating illnesses, diseases, and conditions often appear in the form of symptoms that could easily go undiagnosed or mistaken for other, less severe ones, it is best to see a doctor to ensure that you are in the clear at all times. You need to in a position to be able to take prompt action should the need arise.
Risk Assessment

There are no second opinions about the fact that annual medical examinations are ideal for risk assessment. Even if the results of your medical examination come out normal, seeing your doctor regularly is a great way to ensure that you’re not at risk for developing any serious conditions or illnesses down the road.

Even if there aren’t any anomalies in the results of your medical examination, getting a thorough checkup once a year can help both you and your doctor understand the true condition of your health. Additionally, if, for instance, you have borderline high blood pressure or cholesterol levels with a family history of diabetes or heart disease, it will be safe for doctors to assume that you, too, are at risk. This will give you and your doctor enough time to work together and develop the appropriate course of action.

Update Vaccinations

Contrary to popular belief, vaccinations are not just for children. It is also imperative for adults to get booster shots every now and then to ensure that they are always safe and do not fall sick frequently. Additionally, since the type of vaccination that you might need depends on a number of different factors including your age, it is apt that you visit your doctor on a yearly basis for the right examinations and to update your vaccinations.

Healthy Lifestyle

Regardless of whether or not there are any problems with the results of your medical examination, visiting a doctor will help you understand the changes that you need to make to your lifestyle in order to remain healthy and active for years to come.

Additionally, since letting go of certain dangerous habits such as smoking or binge eating can be difficult without the intervention of a professional, your annual medical exam doctor will also be able to provide you with the right resources to change your life for the better. And since your health depends on a number of different factors, visiting a doctor regularly for checkups will ensure that the doctor has complete understanding of your medical history and all conditions that you might have, allowing them to provide you with the best advice to achieve or maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What to Expect in an Annual Physical Examination?

While there really isn’t a fixed standard that decides what will and will not be included in an annual physical examination, there are some things that you should expect in every annual physical examination.

When you visit your doctor for your annual physical examination, it goes without saying that your doctor will specifically ask you if you’ve been facing any problems with your health in recent weeks or months. Depending on your response, you will be thoroughly checked to ensure that the doctor fully understands and assesses the situation and pinpoints any underlying problems or conditions.

Next, the doctor will check your vital signs to get an idea of your overall health and wellbeing. Once your blood pressure, temperature, heart rate and respiration rate are checked, the doctor might start asking you some more basic questions about your health and physical state in general. By doing so, the doctor will not only figure out what they need to regarding your responsiveness and mental quickness, but the doctor might even throw in a question or two to test your memory.

Once this is done, your doctor will get into more thorough testing and examinations of important organs such as your lungs and heart. Using a stethoscope, the doctor will listen to your heartbeat to check for irregularities or any signs that could potentially be caused by cardiac problems or diseases. Your lungs, too, will be checked for any wheezing, crackles, or shortness of breath which could be an indicator of respiratory issues.

The overall health of your skin, sinuses, eyes, and teeth will also be checked in a physical examination so that the doctor gets a clear picture of your overall health. Finally, you should expect your doctor to check your lymph nodes, thyroid, tonsils, and ears to ensure that you’re in the clear.

As evident from the details above, an annual medical examination is a comprehensive physical test that can help doctors understand your physical health and wellbeing through and through. Needless to say, owing to the thorough nature of the examination, it will not only be possible for doctors to detect or diagnose a majority of different types of problems, conditions, and diseases, but also help you regain health and stability in your life.

Paul Norwood, MD, leads the team at Valley Endocrine in Fresno, California. Valued by his community for his caring and kind personality as well as his skills as a physician, Dr. Paul Norwood is also respected nationwide for his expertise as an endocrinologist. In 1993, Dr. Norwood founded Valley Endocrine Clinic, which specializes in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism, as well as Valley Research, which does clinical trials.

Drawing Holds Clues to Better Long-Term Memory

After nine weeks, participants were five times more likely to remember words they had drawn than words they had written.

Drawing linked to improved retention of knowledge compared to writing

The person appears to automatically turn the act of drawing into long-term memory”

— Unnur Ottarsdottir

REYKJAVIK, ICELAND, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It seems the kids who doodle and draw in their notebooks during class might be onto something.

In a study recently published in the journal ATOL: Art Therapy OnLine, 134 subjects were asked to draw the content of certain words and write other words down. Some participants recalled what they had written and drawn after three weeks, and others after nine weeks. In both cases, words that were drawn were more successfully recalled than words that were written. After three weeks, the median number was two to one in favour of drawn words. After nine weeks, that ratio grew to a staggering five to one in favour of drawing.

“The person appears to automatically turn the act of drawing into long-term memory,” says study author and art therapist Unnur Ottarsdottir. “This is the first time this type of research on such a long-term memory has been conducted worldwide prior to now, as far as we are able to tell, and the findings are very intriguing.”

Ottarsdottir began practising and researching art therapy in the early 1990s. She has published, spoken and taught at conferences and universities around the globe on the subject. Not only is drawing more effective than writing at stimulating long-term memory, says Ottarsdottir, but it is also useful for processing and working through emotions. Ottarsdottir also conducted another related research study with five children who had experienced stress or trauma and had specific learning difficulties. The children drew pictures partly to memorize coursework material, but Ottarsdottir found indications that the drawing could also relate to processing of emotions associated with difficult or traumatic experiences.

“It appears that in drawing, the children often manage to express vulnerable and complex feelings more easily than they do when speaking,” says Ottarsdottir. “Art therapy theories and methods are important in order to understand this process, and we hope that we can learn more about how art making can help us make further breakthroughs in this area in future studies.”

Ottarsdottir is available for interviews about the study and its findings by clicking on the contact information included in this release. The full paper on the experiment, “Processing Emotions and Memorising Coursework through Memory Drawing,” was published in ATOL: Art Therapy OnLine, and can be viewed at http://journals.gold.ac.uk/index.php/atol/article/view/486/pdf.

Advertising Company Refuses to run Vegan Ads on Dublin Bus and Irish Rail

Dairy Takes Babies ad on Exterion Media UK bus

Go Vegan World accuses Exterion Media Ireland of preferential concern for the Irish dairy industry over the right of the public to the facts about animal use.

Exterion Media has a preferential concern for the Irish dairy industry over the rights of the public to the information in the Go Vegan World ads.”

— Sandra Higgins, Founder & Director, Go Vegan World

DUBLIN, IRELAND, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For the third year running, Exterion Ireland, the only company that carries ads on bus and trains in Ireland, is refusing to run Go Vegan World ads providing the public with information about the dairy industry.

Go Vegan World launched its animal rights and vegan education advertising in Ireland three years ago. It now runs ads across the UK as well as internationally. It is currently running a massive campaign consisting of more than 2000 ads for Christmas and New Year in Ireland and the UK. The ads feature sheep, pigs, turkeys and cows with messages such as: “Veganism = Recognising Me as Someone, Not Something”; “Defenceless & Innocent Yet We Kill Them”; “It’s Not A Personal Choice When Someone is Killed”, and “Dairy Takes Babies from their Mothers”. The group states that the aim of the ads is to remind people that the animals we eat, wear and use in other ways are capable of physical and psychological feelings and, as a result, we do not have the right to use or kill them. The ads refer people to the free vegan guide available through their website.

The ads feature on buses, street signs, billboards and in print outlets owned by several advertising companies.

However, some ads were rejected by Exterion Media, the company contracted by Dublin Bus and Irish Rail to sell advertising space on buses and in train stations. The ad in question featured a mother cow and her calf and the statement “Dairy takes babies from their mothers.” The same ads are published by other Irish advertising companies and by Exterion Media in the UK.

Exterion has failed to-provide specific reasons to Go Vegan World for refusing to run the ad, citing only very broad grounds, “Might adversely affect the interest of the site owner” and “Might result in Exterion Media being in breach of any of its contractual obligations to a site owner,” but refusing to provide any specifics.

Go Vegan World founder and director, Sandra Higgins, notes that the Irish dairy industry runs large ad campaigns through Exterion Media in Ireland. She says that “the refusal to carry Go Vegan World ads referring to dairy points to a very unhealthy situation wherein the only company carrying ads for Irish Bus and Rail appear to have a preferential concern for the Irish dairy industry over the right of the public to the facts contained in our ads.”

30th ANNUAL SAY NO TO DRUGS HOLIDAY CLASSIC SPREADS DRUG-FREE MESSAGE

Drug-Free World booth at the 30th Annual Say to Drugs Holiday Classic Race in Clearwater

CLEARWATER, FL, US, December 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On December 15, 2018 the 30th Annual Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic Race was held in downtown Clearwater, Florida. The race began at the Coachman Park marina, with the course stretching across the Memorial Causeway Bridge to Clearwater Beach and back to Coachman Park where runners enjoyed a fresh pancake breakfast. Over 2,000 people of all ages registered to run in the race.

Overall winners for the race and top winners by age category were awarded for the 1 mile, 5K and 10K races.

The proceeds for this yearly event were presented to local Girl Scout Troops, the Boy Scouts of America Pinellas County District, and the Pinellas Sheriff Police Athletic League.

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World Florida, who has partnered with the race for many years, sponsored an “educational" booth at the event. Drug-Free World volunteers encouraged runners to sign the drug-free pledge promising to lead a drug-free life. The runners also received a “Truth About Synthetic Drugs” informational booklet in their goodie bag and were offered additional copies of other drug education booklets from the Foundation’s booth.

“Synthetics Drugs are very dangerous drugs,” said Julieta Santagostino the President of Foundation for a Drug-Free World Florida Chapter, “It’s important that people are educated on them and understand what they are.”

If anyone would like free copies of any of any of the booklet or would like more information, they can visit the Foundation for Drug Free World information center at 41 N. Fort Harrison Ave, or call them at (727) 467-6962. They can also be reached by email at info.fl@drugfreeworld.org.

The Foundation for a Drug Free World is a non-profit organization that educates youth and the community on the truth about drugs, so they can make the right decision to live drug-free. The Church of Scientology is a sponsor of the program making it possible for the Foundation to provide educational materials at no cost to educators, law enforcement and the community. Scientology’s Founder, L. Ron Hubbard, said, “Drugs rob life of the sensations and joys which are the only reasons for living anyhow.”
