Do you believe in the wonders of life and its mysteries?

BOCA RATON, FL, ESTADOS UNIDOS, April 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — There are house elves. Heroic house elves!

There are Middle-Earth elves. Fair and wise, with great spiritual powers, keen senses and a close empathy with nature.

There are serious elves. There are frivolous elves.

And there are duendes: in Portuguese and Iberian folklore, they are beings of a small stature wearing big hats, whistling a mystical song, while walking in the forest. In some Latin American cultures, duendes are the helpers of people who get lost in the forest, so they could find their way home.

They are mischievous. But they are compassionate. They are magical. But they are practical. They are spiritual. They are down to earth. And they share with their people the wisdom of the ages.

Do you believe in elves? If not, why not?

If you need them, they will find you. But you need to get out into nature, disconnect, and listen to the trees.

Author Valeria Lopes of Brazil advises what has become a part of Japanese culture. It’s called shinrin-yoku in Japanese—literally translated as “forest bathing”—and it’s very simple: immerse yourself in the forest, absorb its sights, sounds, and smells, and you will reap numerous psychological and physiological benefits. And your elf, if you need one, may visit you!!

Of course, to have an elf, you need to believe in elves. If you’d like to know more about how they choose which people to visit, then take a look inside the book: “Gypsy Love: Dream or Reality?” by Valeria Lopes from PiuBook Publishing.

You’ll travel to a world of mysteries and ancient wisdom and you’ll meet Vla, the heroic, mischievous elf.

You can find the book on Amazon

Author Charles Lisa Publishes Debut Christian Memoir, ‘A Product of a Pimp and a Prostitute: My Forgiveness Journey’

Book Highlights Effects of Drug Epidemic and Penal System on Families

Charles Lisa has dug in and chronicled the power of a life of faith under dire circumstances. With an unflinching eye and sound heart, she has shown us how it is to be steadfast; to grow through pain.”

— Marion Roach Smith, Author

ALBANY, NEW YORK, USA, April 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — King Jesus Press LLC released today the highly-anticipated book, “A Product of a Pimp and a Prostitute: My Forgiveness Journey.” This memoir, written by new author Charles Lisa, details a life of growing up without her mother, and she shares personal stories of unimaginable experiences as she dealt with her mother’s negligence and criminal lifestyle.

“Countless number of families in this country experience issues that stem from drug addiction,” said Charles Lisa. “While society now recognizes this as a public health crisis and is putting resources in place, that wasn’t always the case. Too often, families were severed because the way to fight the so called ‘war on drugs’ was to lock up offenders. This left children without parents and other family members struggling to care for them. I was one of those children. This book highlights some of my experiences and my journey to find forgiveness.

“My memoir will force readers to examine relationships in their lives that are broken because of unforgiveness,” Charles Lisa continued. “For me, it was drugs and a life of crime that kept my mother away from me. For others, it may be another significant action causing tears among friends, family members, co-workers or church members. By the end of this book, readers will understand the importance of giving and receiving grace and forgiveness.”

“A Product of a Pimp and a Prostitute” is an inspirational memoir about forgiveness written by an adult daughter as a letter to her biological mother. Reared by her maternal grandmother – Hazel – Charles Lisa confronts her mother Deborah on her absence in her life growing up and outlines all the limited and negative interactions she has had with her as a child and into adulthood.

Recalling memories from her youth, Charles Lisa stirs up past feelings of neglect, embarrassment and despair over the knowledge of having a mother with a life-long, criminal record and a debilitating drug addiction. She tells this story by sharing her experiences, her mother’s jailhouse letters, stories told by her elders throughout the years and, most importantly, her belief in God.

The book’s pivotal moment occurs when the author offers the gift of forgiveness to her mother and demonstrates how her mother and other readers can benefit from God’s forgiveness, self-forgiveness, forgiving others and accepting forgiveness from those who offend them to have a more fulfilling life.

Praise for “A Product of a Pimp and a Prostitute”

Marion Roach Smith, author of “The Memoir Project, A Thoroughly Non-Standardized Text for Writing & Life” said: “Charles Lisa has dug in and chronicled the power of a life of faith under the most dire of circumstances. With an unflinching eye and sound heart, she has shown us how it is to be steadfast and to grow through pain.”

Ronald D. Smith, professor emeritus, SUNY Buffalo State said: “This book is an example of a compelling story well told. It has a dignity and humanity that shows a woman of perseverance and courage. In spite of all the hardships and unfairness of her life, Charles Lisa has emerged as an ethical human being who has risen above extraordinarily negative odds. I'm certain that readers who themselves may be struggling with adversity will be inspired by her story.”

Dr. Damone Paul Johnson, senior pastor, Metropolitan New Testament Mission Baptist Church, Albany, NY and author of “A Life Worth Rebuilding” said: “Charles Lisa challenges you to forgive yourself and others and not allow what has happened to you to block what God has for you. You can’t change where you’ve been, but you can choose where you’re going. This book is a game changer!”

Rev. Emmett Mixon, pastor, Community Church COGIC, Buffalo, NY said: “This memoir written by Charles Lisa gives insight and hope to families dealing with life situations and circumstances. She has opened herself to complete transparency and revealed through her own personal experiences how to trust God and allow him to deliver and strengthen all our family relationships. Her freedom to share detailed and sensitive information of her faith journey in life gives readers first-hand knowledge in the world of addiction, its consequences and effects on family relations, and the struggle to find spiritual answers to pain and suffering. A testimony comes in varies ways, but the end result is to tell of God’s goodness and mercy. Charles Lisa has done just that in her memoir.”

Independent Filmmaker Impersonates Mark Zuckerberg And Creates Viral April Fool's Day Video "A World Without Facebook"

Only some people didn't get the joke, and took it for an official statement from Facebook.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Imagine a world without Facebook. Not a world before Facebook, but rather a world where Facebook was suddenly eliminated by Mark Zuckerberg himself. Los Angeles-based filmmaker Andrew Oleck was able to do more than just make people imagine this possibility—he made people actually believe it was a reality with his viral video (and wildly successful April Fool's prank) "A World Without Facebook." In this video, Mark Zuckerberg announces to the world that he will be shutting down Facebook for good—and people bought it.

"The fake news epidemic might be the most controversial aspect of Facebook right now and the company is struggling to come up with a solution," Gizmodo stated in an article about the video. "In this light, Oleck's video actually seems like a good case study to better understand the phenomenon."

Oleck wrote the script for the video in June of 2017 which was largely inspired by the "fake news" epidemic that plagued (and continues to plague) journalism and social media. The project was shelved for seven months as Oleck worked on several other endeavors; then in January 2018, he began production on "A World Without Facebook."

When the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke, it pushed Oleck to rewrite the script and speed up its completion. During this perfect media storm of fake news and the #deletefacebook hashtag which was circulating, the project became a personal challenge for Oleck as a filmmaker. Could he truly pull off this epic prank? He had no way of knowing, but he pressed on. "A World Without Facebook" was completely funded, shot, edited, written, produced and acted by Oleck—along with the help of his vast L.A. network of talented friends.

The video features a direct address from Zuckerberg himself which was digitally manipulated to recite Oleck's script (replacing Zuckerberg's voice and mouth with Oleck's). The finishing touches on script and After Effects continued until March 31st, a day before launch. A similar, but far more advanced technique was used in the Jordan Peele Obama PSA released 2 weeks after Oleck's video. The VFX for the "Zuck" mouth-swap effect were created by Oleck in less than a day with no room for refinement. Under pressure to finish, he decided it was good enough for small screens or windowed internet browsers on computers and the final video was released at 6pm EST on April 1st as Oleck celebrated Easter with his family in Wilmington, Delaware.

The video was not an immediate success, only reaching about 100k views in the first week after its release. Then on April 10th, the first day of Mark Zuckerberg's two-day hearing in Washington in response to the Cambridge Analytica debacle, the video gained 50K views organically. Oleck boosted it again and soon after, the video views erupted—it quickly achieved viral status. Comments on the video by people who believed it to be true ranged from relief to outrage to sadness at the loss of their beloved Facebook. The video currently has over 35 million views and continues to gain a million more approximately every two days. People from all over the globe have posted about and re-uploaded the video and—spearheaded by the hashtag #wwfb—have begun a movement in which they discuss what a world without Facebook would actually be like.

"I wanted to make a statement about Facebook and its impact on the world," Oleck says. "Though I am a Facebook user myself and I appreciate its usefulness as a platform to stay connected with each other, there's things about it that concern me. So I wanted to express my thoughts the best way I know how—through film."

Kyera uses her voice and musical talent for humanity and not for self-glorification. Her song, “Passion,” channels her desire to open up the doors for others to live their best life.

Rafflelution is the brainchild of Entertainment Consultant and Music Manager Raffles van Exel who has guided the careers of some of the world’s greatest entertainers and brands.

Rafflelution Releases New Artist Kyera's Breathtaking Single "Passion" on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, and Amazon

Passion captures the essence of empowerment for humanity and not letting anything stand between you and your passion in life.”

— Kyera, the singer and songwriter for Passion.

NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA, April 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rafflelution announced today that its new artist Kyera's debut single, "Passion," is available for purchase on all digital platforms: Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, and Amazon. The single features music legend Carlos Santana and producers award-winning Narada Michael Walden and Raffles Van Exel.

"Passion captures the essence of empowerment for humanity and not letting anything stand between you and your passion in life," said Kyera who wrote the touching lyrics. "I don't apologize for my greatness and no one ever should." Santana's electrifying sounds matched the power of Kyera's voice.

"We wanted the diverse message of Passion to be an important influence in the #MeToo movement as a mantra about standing in your truth and pursuing your passion while keeping your integrity," said Van Exel, Kyera's manager. "Carlos Santana's contribution to the spirited song gives it a rock and roll feel and giving it a cross over sound."

In a recent radio interview on iHeart RUSA radio show with Andrey and Zoya, the only syndicated Russian-language FM HD station in the United States, Kyera talks about her accidental singing journey. "Music has been a big part of my life," she said. "I am a composer by nature." She explained that listening to her environment allows her to create music from anything.

"Initially, I never considered myself as a singer until a dear friend, a fashion designer, heard me singing and became teary eyed from the beauty of my voice," said Kyera. "She said you have something extraordinary, you should sing your own songs." I debuted as a vocalist at her fashion show and found my passion for singing.

"I feel the right producer can duplicate what your music is about and help flow power through your voice," she said.

"When Raffles, a family friend and music producer heard my voice, he knew what to do and connected me with hit maker Narada Michael Walden," recalled Kyera. "This awesome producer was struck by my voice and music and was immediately on board."

Van Exel took the song to a higher level by bringing Santana on board to collaborate on Passion. As they say, the rest is history for Kyera's fast-rising music career.

The Movie Hollywood Didn't Want Made Comes Out On Digital Download

It was one of the hardest movies to make; everything that could go wrong did go wrong and at the time marijuana was still largely illegal in the country”

— Marcus Morton, Producer of Grow House

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are you hungover from all the 420 “festivities? Do you still want to keep the 420 party going? The perfect solution for both is sitting down and watching Grow House starring Lil Duval, DeRat Davis, Martin Starr, Faizon Love, Raquel Lee, Malcolm McDowell and Snoop Dogg.

Grow House is now available for digital download at GrowHouseMovie.com.

This seemingly innocent comedy, written and directed by DJ Pooh, co-writer with Ice Cube of the FRIDAY franchise (New Line Cinema), with plenty of light-hearted cannabis-related connective tissue, almost never got made. From the content in the movie trailers all the way to the images on the movie posters, Hollywood made the production of Grow House as complicated as ever. There is one major difference between Grow House and other stoner flicks: In Grow House, cannabis is the star. In Grow House, it’s the main attraction. And that just doesn’t fly with the Hollywood elite. Which is why this film ended up being made independently.

"It was one of the hardest movies to make; everything that could go wrong did go wrong and at the time marijuana was still largely illegal in the country," said the films Producer Marcus Morton (You Got Served, 3 Strikes, etc). "When you see all the trials that end up as comedy the guys go through in the film trying to get their grow business going, well lets just say making this film we had those same complications. I felt like I was in a 'twilight zone' episode on this film, but it could have been the smoke coming from the cast."

Hollywood may not have wanted anything to do with it, but how about you? Join the MovieRanker family and share whether you think this movie deserves sky-high ratings or just complete skunk weed. We want your honest opinion; I promise we can handle it!


There's a boom in medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of California and the U.S. These facilities have reached record numbers, cropping up like Starbucks or McDonald's. States across the nation are legalizing medical and recreational marijuana. Our two unlikely heroes, Pat (DeRay Davis – "EMPIRE," “21 Jump Street," "GI Joe") and Darius (Lil’ Duval – "Scary Movie 5," "Meet the Blacks"), figure they can help the medical marijuana movement, but mainly help themselves by trying to grow their own cannabis and selling their crop to the dispensaries. There’s only one problem… knowing how to smoke marijuana doesn't mean you know how to grow it!

After taking a trip to Dr. Doobie (Malcolm McDowell – "Entourage", "The Mentalist,” "Home Alone") to become legally certified growers, they gain access to a Bel-Air mansion to use as a "grow house." Although they convince Snoop Dogg (played as himself) to fund their operation, our heroes soon discover what can grow wrong, will go wrong in this comedy of errors.

Bigfoot Prints

Join us east week for new encounters

Bigfoot Live on Blog Talk

The Godfather of Bigfoot has dispatched his "A Team" and is joining them in Missouri to investigate local encounters with the Creature known as Bigfoot

Bigfoot Project Investments Inc. (OTCMKTS:BGFT)

REDWOOD CITY, CA, US, April 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Bigfoot Hotlines are humming with reports of new encounters with the creature known as Bigfoot. Bigfoot Project Investments Inc. A public company traded under the ticker symbol BGFT, is continuing it's pursuit of the Creature. Continuing their journey in researching and documenting evidence of the creature known as Bigfoot.

The creatures are on the move to their summer nesting grounds. New encounters are being reported on a daily basis. For those who study this creature, this is nothing new. This is the time of year that the family pods follow their migratory route to their summer location. In the past the team has tracked the creature through Arkansas, Oklahoma and into Texas. It appears that the creatures might be establishing a new migratory route through the heart of America.

The team has listened to the stories and combed through the evidence to establish their Spring Expedition Route starting in the heart of the country, Missouri. Reports from a local Scout leader have brought the "A Team" to Jackson County, Missouri for the first investigatory location in the spring tour.

The Godfather of Bigfoot hunters, Mr. Biscardi is inviting all Media sources i.e. Newspaper, T.V.,
Radio and concerned citizens to join his Team while they look for the illusive Beast in the Jackson County area.

The sight is one of the locations in which a Boy Scout Troop Leader with his troop were on an overnight for survival training. The troop was camping for the weekend. During their stay in the area they found large Man- Like Creature prints in the ground. Later that same day they heard unfamiliar sounds during the night. The Scout Leader stated that some of the boys were frightened by the activity but the sounds were not near the camp so the boys were never in any danger. The troop has since moved the location of their overnights to avoid that area.

Not far east of that location other encounters have been reported on a remote farm that sports two separate water sources. The activity from this location has been frequent and the land owners are very interested in obtaining some irrefutable evidence of the existence of the hairy hominoid that frequents their property.

This is Mr. Biscardi's 51st year in the industry and he and the team have high hopes that Jackson County will the area where they will find the Beast!

Tonight’s episode will feature Dr. Wendy Walsh, who is a psychologist and famous media personality. Dr. Walsh became known as a “Silence Breaker” and one of Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year 2017,” when she spoke out and detailed allegations of sexual harassment by former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

Mychal says “I would like to thank Dr. Walsh for appearing on my show and discussing this hot topic. Her compelling story is important and relevant to the current cultural movements occurring in today’s society.”

“Dr. Walsh is a true Silence Breaker. Her courageousness and integrity in helping others in her pursuit for justice is what this show is about, and I applaud her for discussing her journey and the #MeeToo movement,” says Mychal Wilson, Esq.

In March 2016, Hadden was sentenced for one felony count of a criminal sex act and one count of forcible touching, a misdemeanor, covering two victims. Hadden was ordered to relinquish his medical license and register as a sex offender.

While not offering legal advice, "The Whistleblower” with Mychal Wilson, Esq." does provide examples of legal recourse for potential whistleblowers, and for those who are being harassed, wrongfully terminated and/or retaliated against by her or his employer. "Been there, done that, as a former big pharma sales rep, so now I want to help those who may be facing similar hostile work environments," declares Mychal Wilson, Esq.”

"I would like to thank American national television host, radio host, columnist and political commentator Rick Amato, producer Sutton Porter, and RADTV (including co-founder Barbara Beach) for the opportunity to create and distribute this show," says Mychal Wilson.

Renowned Civil Rights Attorney V. James DeSimone Joins Appalling Sexual Harassment Case Against Loot Crate

The victim suffered from her boss’ constant physical, verbal and electronic harassment; then he fired her for complaining, lawsuit says

It’s an abuse of power situation The same supervisor who sexually harassed our client was allowed to fire her right after she complained.”

— V. James DeSimone, civil rights attorney

LOS ANGELES, CALIF., USA, April 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Veteran civil rights attorney V. James DeSimone has joined as trial counsel in a major lawsuit accusing an executive at comics-and-gamers collectibles service Loot Crate of particularly egregious sexual harassment.

“It’s an abuse of power situation,” said DeSimone, whose practice focuses on employment discrimination and harassment. “The same supervisor who sexually harassed our client was allowed to fire her right after she complained.”

The harassment started as soon as the woman was hired to join Loot Crate’s accounting department in February 2017, according to the lawsuit. Just as the #MeToo movement was bringing national attention to endemic workplace sexual harassment and assault, the female accountant’s Loot Cart supervisor – the assistant corporate controller subjected her to a constant barrage of sexual emails, lewd comments, and suggestive and intimidating actions, the lawsuit says.

“(He) touched the plaintiff’s behind, motioned like he was taking up-skirt pictures, motioned in the air as if he was performing oral sex on a woman and accosted the plaintiff for sex, paid if need be,” according to the lawsuit.

“Those boots make your ass wiggle!!!” the manager texted, according to the lawsuit. On another day, the lawsuit says, he texted: “I have just decided I’m going to lust after you for a while! With pleasure! I may be twitching a little! Ok ok I admit it! I stared! I need to be blunt! I need to go find a you to f***!!! I may just have to find one I have to pay for! Know anyone?? Lol”

The woman complained to Loot Crate’s human resources department, which never investigated and told her to bring the matter to the controller, who told her to solve the problem herself, according to the lawsuit.

She finally confronted her boss, asking him to end his harassment, and was unlawfully fired on his recommendation days later, the lawsuit says.

The wrongful termination lawsuit seeks $10 million in damages. It was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Jan. 5 under the name of Jane Doe, to maintain the woman’s privacy, by Jonathan LaCour of Employees First Labor Law, of Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties, who will co-counsel the case with V. James DeSimone Law.

Los Angeles-based Loot Crate in 2016 was considered one of the nation’s fastest-growing companies by Inc. and today is in the midst of seeking investors. Three members of the company’s board recently resigned. Loot Crate’s partners include Nickelodeon, Marvel, D.C. Comics, Nintendo, Sanrio and J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.

DeSimone is available for interviews. Contact Robert Frank, 206-790-6324.
