Focus Through Music With World Void Web

Think Void_World Void Web

With rich, experiential sound and worldwide collaborations, ‘Think Void’ is the solo artist World Void Web’s debut album in Instrumental Music!

NAVI MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, February 28, 2018 / — Lack of concentration and the inability to focus the mind on one thing is a widespread problem, irrespective of age, gender or country. Lack of concentration affects work, relationships, school, and almost everything else. In this age of the Internet, smartphones, the social networks & information overload, the problem is even bigger and make the attention span even shorter. When the problem is severe, it might require medical attention and advice. However, if you are an average person, lacking concentration, but have no health problems as the cause of the lack of concentration, you can remedy this by listening to relaxing, instrumental music. Instrumental music is medically proven to be beneficial to improve focus and productivity.
Meet Ajit Padmanabh, a self-taught solo musician & artist from Bangalore, whose love for instrumental music and focused listening, led to the making of his debut album, Think Void, with the tagline “Inward Is The Best Way Forward”. Seeking an alternate identity which is neutral in gender, community, region, religion or nationality, he calls himself World Void Web. The concept of Void – nothing that’s everything – always fascinated him. Sony DADC released Ajit’s debut album, Think Void, on 24th November 2017, including packaging, distribution & marketing worldwide. The album features collaborations with legendary artists like Grammy Award winner and Hindustani Classical Hawaiian Guitar proponent Dr. Prakash Sontakke, Legendary Bass Guitarist Keith Peters, Rock Guitarist with his signature Carnatic leads Baiju Dharmajan and an International act from Spain, Music Saw proponent and Spain’s Got Talent Participant Adriano Fernandez.
Taking a break from his full-time job at a leading IT firm, Ajit got down to conceptualize, create and mold this album to its final shape in 4 months. He conceptualized the album and track titles after focused and extensive research on the subtlest of the five elements (Panchabhoota in Sanskrit) known as Ether/Space/Void (Akasha in Sanskrit), the essential message being Think “Void” since that’s what makes all things fall in place, that’s what makes all of what we sense, actually manifest! With influences of rock, jazz, metal, dance & fusion, Ajit arranged and recorded this multi-genre album at his home studios, Blank Point Studios and was mastered at the legendary Sterling Studio, New York.
Think Void, with its subtle yet evocative, ethereal mix of sounds, helps transport the listener to a world within oneself, bringing in concentration and enabling a focused work of creation to take shape. With every listener’s world being essentially different, an introduction of lyrics into the music would have definitely altered the listener’s imagination or concentration. Thus, World Void Web chose not to include words but instead, brought in voiceless emoting, leading the listener to focus on his/her activities, thereby improving productivity.
An avid reader, Ajit believes that each of us is experiencing 3 states at any given point in time – World, Void & Web. You could be overwhelmed watching the simplicity of rain (World), absorbing all of what you see around, breathing (Void), while lamenting about the traffic, sitting inside your vehicle (Web). This is the core philosophy of his songs and albums. Ajit firmly believes that Music has been teaching him all he knows about it.
“Those 4 months were transformational. When I opted for a break from my day job, I didn't even have a sketch of the intended final outcome. I was a seeker, a learner. It was as though I was being guided by the Supreme one above, with sudden-born ideas and collaborations with renowned artists and engineers. The journey was surreal!”
Amidst all the “heavy” philosophy, he chuckles “Sometimes, when I listen to the tracks, I go in amazement and utter reverence to the Higher Force – Did I just play that?”
The album has received some rave reviews already. “Philosophical, musically deep, and with arrangements that will stand up to repeat plays, World Void Web’s Think Void is an album that would be best enjoyed with listeners sitting back, focusing on the music issuing forth from speakers, and contemplating what each note means to the overall enjoyment of the album” – NeuFutur Magazine, released on a bimonthly schedule, available in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania, USA.
The first music video from the album was released recently, for the song “Memories In Raindrops”.

TeleScope Application on NoviFlow NoviSwitches Uses AI to Enable Real-Time Visibility into Video Flows in Live Networks

Machine Learning and AI can be used for Tier 1 carriers, network infrastructure providers and enterprises to manage video and VR traffic without massive cybersecurity and network management upgrades.”

— Dominique Jodoin, NoviFlow President and CEO

BARCELONA, SPAIN, February 27, 2018 / — University of New South Wales' Machine Learning-Based Application Combined with NoviSwitches Offers Carriers, ISPs, and Enterprises Unprecedented Price/Performance for Real-Time Video Classification in an Operational Network

NoviFlow Inc., a leading vendor of high-performance OpenFlow-based switching and routing solutions, and UNSW, a world top-100 university with deep expertise in SDN applications that leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence technology, today announced that their joint TeleScope solution is in live trials with network operators.

NoviFlow issued the news from Mobile World Congress #MWC18 Booth 7M11, where the company is demonstrating its solutions.

Carriers and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) worldwide are facing a formidable challenge in coping with the volume of video traffic in their network. Streaming video already accounts for more than half of Internet traffic in most countries. These video flows needlessly drive up the costs of network security appliances by consuming deep-packet inspection and intrusion detection resources even though they are not themselves a direct vector for the propagation of malware and viruses. This situation is only slated to worsen with the growing use of 4K video and Virtual and Augmented Reality applications that will generate yet more video.

The TeleScope application:

— Combines the separation of control and data planes of Software Defined Networks (SDN) with the analytical capabilities of Machine Learning to identify video flows and treat them differently from other large data transfers – such as file transfers – that do need to be examined for malware and other cyber threats.

— Provides carriers and ISPs with the ability to bypass video traffic around expensive network security and packet inspection servers, slashing service delivery costs by up to 60%, reducing management complexity and the impact of new video products and services on existing infrastructure.

— TeleScope leverages NoviFlow's NoviWare NOS, which uses the advanced packet handling capabilities of programmable forwarding planes to significantly boost throughput, offer enhanced filtering options at line rates of 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps, 25 Gbps, 40 Gbps, and 100 Gbps, and support up to 6 million simultaneous flows and up to 6.5 Tbps of packet forwarding capacity on Barefoot Networks' industry leading Tofino chip.

— The NoviWare/Telescope solution was specifically designed to simultaneously support in a single device multiple network services such as switching, routing, service chaining, firewalling, load balancing, etc.

Dominique Jodoin, President and CEO of NoviFlow, said, "The onslaught of video and VR traffic in networks has become a major issue in most large-scale networks. These trials demonstrate how Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence can be used to enable Tier 1 carriers, network infrastructure providers, and enterprises to face the onslaught without requiring massive upgrades of their cybersecurity and network management resources. We are honored to collaborate with such a distinguished partner as UNSW to offer game-changing Carrier and ISP Services that drive down the costs of running large-scale networks."

Vijay Sivaraman, Professor at UNSW, explained, "Neither hardware-only (middle-boxes) nor software-only (VNF) solutions can perform network functions in a scalable and cost-effective manner to match the growth of traffic in carrier and enterprise networks. SDN enables us to marry the benefits of the two by decoupling forwarding of long-flow packets in hardware from analysis and inference of flow behavior in software. We are very excited to be working with the proven SDN technology and team from NoviFlow to develop and deploy new applications that use AI to enable unprecedented visibility into individual video streams for network operators and scale the solution cost-effectively to high data rates."


NoviFlow Inc. provides high-performance OpenFlow-based switching solutions to network carriers, data center operators and enterprises seeking greater control, security and flexibility over their networks. NoviFlow has offices in Montreal, Sunnyvale and Seattle, and representatives in Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East. For more information, please visit Follow NoviFlow on Twitter @NoviFlowInc.


UNSW Sydney is one of Australia's leading research and teaching Universities, ranked 45th in the World by QS and 78th by Times Higher Education. It has produced more technology entrepreneurs in the past 15 years, and more millionaire alumni, than any other Australian University. The Faculty of Engineering is the largest and ranked #1 in Australia, and #31 in the world by QS. The University has a strong history of research in the areas of Telecommunications, software, and artificial intelligence, and is globally recognized for its strong links to industry and commercialization.

Farrah Fawcett Archive Including Plaster Cast Signed by Warhol & Haring To Be Sold March 3

Collection features legendary beauty’s passport, several monogrammed items, Bottega Veneta bag, bronze sculpture created by Fawcett

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 25, 2018 / — A one-of-a-kind archive of personal items that belonged to actress, artist and American pop-culture icon Farrah Fawcett (1947-2009) will be auctioned on March 3 in South Florida. The single-owner grouping is a featured highlight of Palm Beach Modern Auctions’ Modern Art & Design, Urban Culture & Jewelry sale. Bidders may participate in the auction in person at the gallery, by phone, live via the Internet through LiveAuctioneers or by leaving an absentee bid.

All of the articles are owned by a friend of the late Texas-born star, who rose to fame as “Jill Munroe” in the original TV series Charlie’s Angels. The variety reflects many aspects of Fawcett’s life and career.

Her metal lipstick holder, Louis Vuitton luggage tag, letterhead stationery and Botega Veneta portfolio bag are all personalized with Fawcett’s initials. The green canvas back from a director’s chair is emblazoned in flowing white script “Farrah Fawcett.” And her personal U.S. passport, which contains her smiling photo and signature, documents the actress’ interest in travel. It bears entry and departure stamps from the United Kingdom, Tahiti, Australia, Mexico and Egypt.

Among the higher-estimated items is a figural nude bronze and marble sculpture marked and signed by Fawcett. “Farrah Fawcett was a serious artist. She studied art at the University of Texas and was passionate about sculpting and drawing. She was proud of her works and gave many of them as gifts to her friends over the years,” said Palm Beach Modern Auctions partner and auctioneer Rico Baca. The bronze to be auctioned is expected to sell for $3,000-$5,000.

An absolutely unique item in the archive is the plaster cast Farrah Fawcett wore on her arm after suffering an injury in the early 1980s. “What makes the cast so special, in addition to the fact that it was worn by Farrah Fawcett, is the signatures on it,” said Baca. “Both Andy Warhol and Keith Haring signed the cast at a party all three had attended. They were all personal friends as well as artists who respected each other's work. Haring added a cartoon of a radiant heart and figures next to his signature, and Warhol doodled a dollar bill by his name.” The cast comes to auction with supportive documentation and is estimated at $10,000-$15,000.

The Saturday, March 3, 2018 auction will begin at 12 noon Eastern Time. Palm Beach Modern Auctions is located at 417 Bunker Rd., West Palm Beach, FL 33405. Preview: 10-5 Monday, Feb. 26 through Friday, March 2; or on auction day from 9 a.m. till noon.

Fashion Fuses with Real Estate to Close out New York Fashion Week February 2018

The Journey Fashion Festival

Fashion and real estate combined, as The Journey Fashion Festival brought in Douglas Elliman to NYFW with a daring, outdoor, Parisian inspired fashion show.

Malena Belafonte's creativity never ceases to amaze me. You never know what she will come up with next, but you know it will be amazing!”

— Phil DelMazio, Photographer

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, February 24, 2018 / — The show series took place at 251 East 61st Street, an exclusive $14.35 Million, Upper East Side townhouse listed by Douglas Elliman’s Robert Morrison and Margaret Dillon. “We were thrilled to open our doors to The Journey Fashion Festival, as they allowed us to market the townhouse in a unique and non-conventional way,” said listing agent Robert Morrison of Douglas Elliman. “Not only were we able to get a set of fresh eyes on the property, but we were also able to do so in a tasteful and glamorous way.”

The Journey Fashion Festival is known for producing shows out of the ordinary – last season's show featured helicopters that dropped models in Christian Lacroix lingerie off on the runway. The fall/winter '18 show did not disappoint either. The Journey Fashion Festival founder, Malena Belafonte along with her husband and business partner, David Belafonte, who for decades produced his father, singer Harry Belafonte, transformed the five-story, luxury townhouse into a full functioning fashion show venue, by creating a runway that went from the main townhouse, through the outdoor courtyard and into the home’s adjacent carriage house – in the middle of winter.

“It may seem crazy, wanting to do an outdoor fashion show in New York during the middle of February, but I just knew it would be perfectly sexy and classy,” said Malena Belafonte who is also the Creative Director of The Journey Fashion Festival. Born in Denmark to a German mother and a Danish showbiz father, Malena is heavily influenced by her European and show-business roots. “I wanted a boutique vibe that channeled that special time in Paris where it was all about creating a show that would stand out and differ from the others”.

Chinese American Minan Wong opened with a clean and stylish collection. Groomed by her idol Donna Karan, and as a member of the FIT Design Entrepreneurs Collaborative, Minan Wong’s mission is to use fresh sustainable materials and fair wages to showcase an expertly crafted collection. “Our goal is to reduce our footprint while still helping you make your mark,” says Minan. And Minan Wong sure hit her mark during The Journey Fashion Festival with a perfectly curated show.

The runway was lined with beautiful candles from the newly launched Fay Salgado’s Men’s Candle Collection, giving the show “a 50 Shades of Grey vibe” once models clad in lingerie, garters and heels by Helen Sanchez Intimates, took to the runway with a luxury lingerie collection, perfectly titled "From the Bedroom to the Boardroom"

Este and Chlo by Henry Picado from Costa Rica impressed by showcasing collections inspired by old Hollywood glamour. His boutique men’s collection featured superbly tailored suits and his women’s collection, rich in textures and alluring details showcased a range of looks from day to evening for women who know what they want.

“My guests were so impressed by the ability to make an intimate setting as powerful as a huge venue,” says Project Runway’s All Star Layana Aguilar from Brazil who herself, showed a powerful collection in keeping with her mission to provide armor for which women can present their best selves every day. Her collection closed out the show series featuring live music performed by beautiful Brazilian singer Alina Munez accompanied by Marco de Vita.

Throughout the collections, models wore diamonds from Designs by Kamni. Kamni, a luxury jewelry designer, made her NYFW debut with a magical collection. Known for hand-selecting each and every diamond used, this new mom created a look that fit perfectly with the intimate show setting. "I get inspired by each costumer, and I want that to translate into each piece I create," says Kamni Verma.

The "City Estate" was creatively curated to create an exclusive experience for the invited show guests. After a red carpet arrival, VIP guests were treated to hair treatments in the Beauty Bar by Marcello Costa, and walked away with Redken hair products while enjoying an installation for Lola’s Rewurk Collection by designer of Lola Loves Cargo. A memorable moment that impacted everyone was when in addition to a moment of silence to honor the lives lost in the high school shooting in Florida, 10 year old Amadeus took to the runway marking each lost life with a drum beat. This inclusive yet exclusive mindset is what sets The Journey Fashion Festival apart.

Sponors included The Alex Salem Team from Douglas Elliman, Fay Salgado Men’s Candle Collection, Sennheiser, Datavision, Redken, Marcello Costa Studio

Zen and a Self-Sufficient Crypto-ecosystem

“The key is self-sufficiency,” says Seagal.

Bitcoiin B2G was designed to revive the original vision of cryptocurrency – anonymous, global, secure, transparent, reliable, secure.

My Zen practice seeks to bring people to enlightenment. That includes clearing our minds of distractions, especially stress and anxiety, and centering our selves in the world as it is.””

— Steven Seagal, martial artist and Zen Master

HONG KONG, CHINA, February 23, 2018 / — Bitcoiin B2G,, has announced actor, martial artist and Zen Master Steven Seagal as its global brand spokesman. But what about Seagal’s Zen practice motivates an interest in an independent cryptocurrency?

“The key is self-sufficiency,” says Seagal. “And humanity. We are here to understand the world as it is. My Zen practice seeks to bring people to enlightenment. That includes clearing our minds of distractions, especially stress and anxiety, and centering our selves in the world as it is.”

People have asked why these ideas have led Seagal to participation in the world of cryptocurrencies, and in particular Bitcoiin B2G. We can only begin to grasp the depth of Seagal’s spiritual ideas, but it seems fair to say that freeing people from the stranglehold of centralized institutions like banks and national governments may be part of the answer.

The Zen practitioner seeks to free the mind from the “life-world.” For most people, this means seeking to raise one’s sights from the everyday realities of debt, work, stress and anxiety. Those stressors, based on an either/or paradigm of thinking, must be overcome. The Zen practitioner seeks a stillness of mind, a life of tending toward the concrete thing-events. The Zen practitioner seeks freedom, expressive of the original human nature.

In these ideas we can perhaps see what Seagal sees in cryptocurrency. A stillness, away from the nattering of business, the chains of credit, the bonds of national borders.

And why Bitcoiin B2G, in particular? Bitcoiin B2G offers secure technology, with blockchain ledger confirmation implemented through the Ethereum blockchain algorithm in a comprehensive ecosystem, including mining pool opportunities, a trading platform, and wallet safekeeping. The original concept of Bitcoiin B2G was to actualize a self-sufficient cryptocurrency ecosystem, independent of central banks, national borders, ties to the nattering world. While perhaps this new company’s initial coin offering was not intended specifically to achieve a Zen state – it may have done so.

Bitcoiin B2G was designed to revive the original vision of cryptocurrency – anonymous, global, secure, transparent, reliable, secure.

A Unique Opportunity

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts, depositors and adventurers have seldom had such a chance to participate in the exhilarating launch of an integrated cryptocurrency ecosystem, with built-in controls, strong management and explosive upside growth potential. Bitcoiin B2G is currently

We announce the second generation of cryptocurrency. Seldom does life grant a second chance.
