SAG Pension Plan loses in the 9th District Court to injured stuntwoman, Leslie Hoffman over taking away her Disability Pension after traumatic brain injury.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — After years of complicated court battles over the loss of her Disability Pension after sustaining multiple injuries, stuntwoman Leslie Hoffman’s previous defeat of her ERISA (The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974) Lawsuit against SAG Pension was reversed and reprimand back down to the Lower Court by the 9th District Court. This will be the third time the Lower Court must rule on Ms. Hoffman’s original lawsuit. Her case has been ruled against the first time and the second time dismissed without a hearing by two different Lower Court Judges. Once appealed to the 9th District Court, they have overturned the judgment based on vital information that was not taken into account in the original courts. (9th Circuit Case Number: 16-56663 / District Court Case Number: 2:16-cv-01530)

The root of the lawsuit centers on SAG Pension canceling Ms. Hoffman’s benefits. Ms. Hoffman and her doctor’s claim she sustained several serious injuries while doing stunts on set. Ms. Hoffman is currently receiving Social Security Disability (since 2002) for multiple injuries. Previously, Ms. Hoffman was receiving benefits from SAG Pension but it was canceled (in part) after SAG Pension claimed that Ms. Hoffman had been holding herself out to be available for work. Ms. Hoffman denies the claim that she has held herself out for work and also claims she has been diagnosed with a Traumatic Brain Injury by top medical specialists in the country. The 9th District Court Judges sided with Ms. Hoffman and sent the case back to Lower Courts to be heard again.

The film industry regularly employs stunt professionals to perform dangerous scenes that they feel are too risky for the principal actors. High falls, falling down stairs, being set on fire and being hit by cars are among a few activities in the daily lives of stunt professionals.

Leslie Hoffman was one of Hollywood’s top stuntwoman at the pinnacle of her 25-year career, which ended in 2002 after suffering injuries from being a professional stuntwoman. Her credits include working on Star Trek: DS9 and Voyager, Nightmare on Elm Street, M*A*S*H, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Remington Steele, CHiPs, The Naked Gun and many more popular shows and movies. She was a vested member of SAG for 25 years and the first stuntwoman elected to the SAG Board of Directors in 1981 and was the first stuntwoman Board Member of the AFTRA National Board and their Los Angeles Local Chapter. During her time there, she advocated for more safety measures and fought discrimination for stuntwomen and people of color.

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, or ERISA, protects the assets of millions of Americans so that funds placed in retirement plans during their working lives will be there when they retire. ERISA is a federal law that sets minimum standards for retirement plans in private industry. [Wikipedia (January 17, 2019 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Employee_Retirement_Income_Security_Act_of_1974 ]

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) was an American labor union which represented over 100,000 film and television principal and background performers worldwide. On March 30, 2012, the union leadership announced that the SAG membership voted to merge with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists(AFTRA) to create SAG-AFTRA.

Joining James is Anthony Ferro as Detective Mike De Capos; Shawn McDonald as Detective Desmond Wright; Nyasia Mitchell as Carla Smyth and introducing Anngeannette Pinkston as Anngela Keys.

"Hawthorne, Anthony, Shawn and the entire cast and crew brought their A game to a story that is based on some criminal cases, as well as my own personal experiences, with added fiction," said Pinkston who worn many hats on the set of KEYS. "I was inspired to write a screenplay from a New Yorker's perspective and from the right side of the law."

KEYS explores the psyche of an unassuming group of four blue collar employees who can't seem to get their heads above financial waters. Carla Smyth, an active NYPD police officer; Jason Bloom, a postal worker; Jason's girlfriend and postal co-worker Christine; and Shae Blake, a twenty-year NYPD officer retiree, are tired of being broke. The group's first plan of action would involve Anngela Keys, a newly retired NYPD sergeant and successful entrepreneur, to get her opinion about pulling off robberies because they are in possession of actual keys to the city. Keys refuses to get involved. Ignoring the warnings of Keys, the foursome embark on a string of neighbor robberies but get a taste for something bigger.

The entire KEYS cast is confirmed to attend the premiere. Celebrities invited are the Original DJ Spindarella (Salt N Pepa); Grammy-winning Rapper Terrance Kelly known professionally as Mr. Cheeks (The Lost Boys); Bass Guitarist Corey Boyd, touring performer for Konvict Muzic, a record label founded by R&B singer Akon; Actor John Canada Terrell (She's Gotta Have It; Boomerang); and New Day Associates CEO and President John Blassingame (publisher of Black Men Magazine, Today’s Black Woman, and Hype Hair Magazine); Film Director Marc Cayce (Flint Tales, A Day of Trouble, Sasha Lanes); Corey and Tamara Galloway, owners of the New York Streets, the National Arena League's newest franchise; and more.

KEYS' film producer is Pinkston. James Brickhouse is the associate producer. KEYS film crew include Director of Photography and editor Douglas Ferguson. The title song, "KEYS," was composed by Shawn McDonald, one of the co-stars.

Prior to taking on the entertainment industry, Pinkston grew up surrounded by the typical temptations that plague big cities. She chose to follow the footsteps of her older brother Andrew who was in law enforcement. She graduated from the New York Police Academy and eventually became a detective and ultimately served 12 years in the Manhattan North Narcotics Division that caused her stress. “During my 8th year on the police force, I witnessed the worst tragedy in modern history – the 9/11 attacks,” said Pinkston. “I was in my early 30s and preparing to testify for a court case that morning. I arrived too early and decided to do some banking about 5 blocks from the World Trade Center.” At that moment from a clear vantage point, Pinkston witnessed in horror as the plane crashed into the tower as people fell or jumped to their death.

Pinkston was devastated but committed to serving the people of New York. “The following day, I was assigned to Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island, the site where debris and the remains from the World Trade Center were separated into evidence,” said Pinkston. Some victims, not having been recovered from the debris on site, were transported to the landfill. “We had to sort through the personal effects of people who had perished or was missing from the 9/11 incident.”

As a result, some of Pinkston's life experiences are expressed through her songwriting and storytelling on the stage, TV and film.

Einstein and Gandhi

Gandhi (Left) and Albert Einstein – MEn who changed the world (7)

The Gandhi Murder – Official Poster

It is ironic that Mahatma Gandhi, the epitome of non-violence was ranked by time magazine as the runners up to its man of the 20th century (Albert Einstein).

‘The Gandhi Murder’ covers in depth the tumultuous last days in the life of Gandhi that eventually led to his assassination on 30th January, 1948. The movie releases worldwide on 30th January, 2019.”

— Nugen Media

DUBAI, –, UAE, January 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “I believe that Gandhi’s views were the most enlightened of all the political men in our time. We should try to do things in his spirit, not to use violence in fighting for all cause, but in non-participation in anything you believe evil.”

This is how Einstein put across his utmost belief in Gandhi’s non-violent passive resistance, in an audio recording in 1950. (1)

In 1931, Albert Einstein wrote to Mohandas K. Gandhi (2) to express his great admiration for the Indian leader’s methods. Translated from German, the letter reads:
“I use the presence of your friend (Sundaram) in our home to send you these lines. You have shown through your works, that it is possible to succeed without violence even with those who have not discarded the method of violence. We may hope that your example will spread beyond the borders of your country, and will help to establish an international authority, respected by all, that will take decisions and replace war conflicts.” He added a note ‘I hope to be able to meet you face to face (2).

The two great men never met in person, despite an invitation extended by Mahatma Gandhi as a response to the above letter. Einstein himself digressed, and amidst the strong belief that the Germans were likely to develop the atom bomb, pushed USA for increased research on the enrichment of Uranium. (3)

Sometime in 1939, Einstein came across information that led him to believe the Germans would produce the bomb, and he signed a letter to President Roosevelt urging him to support the research of American physicists into the chain reaction.

Years later, Einstein came to deeply regret his letter to Roosevelt. "Had I known that the Germans would not succeed in producing an atomic bomb," he said "I would have never lifted a finger.” (4)

Einstein called his pacifism (6) an “instinctive feeling” based only on his “deepest antipathy to every kind of cruelty and hatred,” rather than any “intellectual theory.”
When Gandhi was assassinated on 30th January, Einstein, along with other several other world leaders, felt it as a personal tragedy. On 11th February 1948, Einstein issued the following statement for the memorial service held in Washington. (5)

Everyone concerned with a better future for mankind must be deeply moved by the tragic death of Gandhi. He died a victim of his own principle, the principle of non-violence. He died because in a time of disorder and general unrest in his country, he refused any personal armed protection. It was his unshakable belief that the use of force is an evil in itself, to be shunned by those who strive for absolute peace.

By an ironic coincidence, Time magazine named Albert Einstein as its Man of the 20th century and Mahatma Gandhi as joint runner-up with Franklin D Roosevelt. Curiously, there remains a striking parallel between the constraints faced by the two outstanding personalities. (7)

‘The Gandhi Murder’, starring Stephen Lang, Luke Pasqualino, Om Puri and Vinnie Jones, covers in depth the tumultuous last days in the life of Mahatma Gandhi that eventually led to his assassination on 30th January, 1948. The movie releases worldwide on 30th January, 2019.

The Gandhi of Steve Jobs

(5) Steve Jobs (left) and 1997 Campaign of Apple, portraying Mahatma Gandhi.

Official Poster : The Gandhi Murder

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers…because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

— Steve Jobs

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When asked by Time Magazine about his choice for the Person of the Century in 1999, Steve Jobs replied, “Gandhi is my choice for the Person of the Century because he showed us the way out of the destructive side of our human nature. Gandhi demonstrated that we can force change and justice through moral acts of aggression instead of physical acts of aggression. Never has our species needed this wisdom more.”(1, 2, 7)

Steve’s earliest tryst with Gandhi was probably during his trip in 1974-75 to India (2, 6). Upon his return, Steve stated:
"There is no one that embodies better what I want to become, other than Gandhi. He changed the world.”(2)

Gandhi probably changed Steve Jobs. Within a year, he had founded Apple (12), and destiny conspired with him to ‘Change the world’.
But it was after being fired by Apple that Jobs purchased a pair of circular, wire rim glasses to match the picture of Gandhi he'd had since his early 20s. Steve always kept a picture of Gandhi with him and history will remember him much like his hero (2). Men who thought differently.

During his second innings at Apple in the year 1997, Steve stood before a giant portrait of Mahatma Gandhi and said these words before a packed audience: “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers…because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” (3)
Jobs left the world as ironically as his inspiration Gandhi’s violent assassination by a semi automatic Beretta fired at point blank range (11). The man who challenged technology and spearheaded one of the biggest technological revolution of our times died because technology did not have an answer to cancer. (13, 14)
Gandhi uttered the words ‘Hai Ram’ (Oh God) three times before he lost consciousness (11). One wonders if the last monologue of Steve Jobs ‘Oh Wow’ (10) repeated three times was his ultimate tribute to the man who inspired him all his life. Perhaps we shall never know, but the coincidence is unpalatable.

The Gandhi Murder’, starring Stephen Lang, Luke Pasqualino, Om Puri and Vinnie Jones, covers in depth the tumultuous last days in the life of Mahatma Gandhi that eventually led to his assassination on 30th January, 1948. The movie releases worldwide on 30th January, 2019.

His venture into the world of entertainment is largely influenced by a shift that happened in Taylor’s personal life over the past decade, nothing less than a Spiritual Awakening and recognition that he and his vision are only a tiny raindrop in a vast ocean of Divine Potential of which the entire human race partakes of and is connected to.

The Shift was initially set in motion during Taylor’s college years where, though he grew up fundamentally Christian, he began to question so much of what he was taught as he looked more deeply into the life and teachings of Jesus and what it means to be a Christ follower. He could feel the rift between what the church and his peers expected him to believe and the destiny Jesus was calling him to, a lifestyle saturated with the Presence of God and centered around spreading Forgiveness, Unconditional Love and Reconciliation throughout the world, to all people, regardless of race, religion, education, vocation, ethnicity, social background, criminal background, financial status, gender or sexual orientation, proclaiming Heaven on Earth.

Though his acting, singing, songwriting and instrument playing began at a young age, it was not until his mid 20’s when his life was uprooted by undealt with Hurts, Habits and Hangups from his youth that he began to truly see himself as a channel that the Universe desired to use as a vessel of God’s Forgiveness, Mercy, Love and Grace. His Hurts, Habits and Hangups landed him in two inpatient treatment facilities where he began to face his innermost demons and relinquish the mask he was using to hide from God, others and himself.

One evening, while crying out to God in his bedroom at an addiction treatment center, he heard a still, small, soothing and comforting voice speak within his heart, saying “Just wait till you see, you’re gonna be free, chainless forever. Just take up your wings and soar to the sky, light as a feather. Child you belong to me, so be free.” This experience of hearing the still, small, voice of Spirit, though not his first, profoundly impacted and reoriented his life. Wiping tears from his eyes, he picked up the guitar he had brought with him and began writing and composing his first ever single release Chainless Forever, which is now part of his six track EP, A Shift is Happening, available on YouTube, Itunes, Google Play, Spotify, Deezer, and through many other distributors.

Over the past five years, the following music tracks came together to form A "Shift is Happening" which when listened to in order are a formula for Personal and Planetary Transformation and “Shift”. They are as follows:

Prelude to Change
Lay Your Weapons Down
Take a Deep Breath
A Shift is Happening
Chainless Forever
A New Age is Dawning

Over the past five years Taylor channeled the messages of these songs for his own personal Healing and Transformation and in the summer of 2017 he recorded them at HomeGrown Studios in Atlanta, GA with professional recording artists, producers and sound engineers Alexander Downtain and Benjamin Humkey. What became of those sacred hours in the studio is nothing less than a Musical Masterpiece of Healing and Hope that is sure to draw multitudes into an encounter with the Lover of All Souls as they experience a Shift Happening in their own lives.

It is with deep gratitude and humility that Taylor Rusch presents this Labor of Love to the world.

Peace and Love be with you always,

Taylor Rusch

— the real life Les Grossman

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Producer Les Grossman and Executive Producer Robert Taleghany are excited to announce the TV pilot "REEL: The Les Is More Show" is in development. Creation of this series was inspired by Tom Cruise’s portrayal of the over the top concert/movie producer Les Grossman. Tropic Thunder starring Tom Cruise, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr. and Matthew McConaughey among others was produced by Ben Stiller and released August 13, 2008.

"Tom Cruise’s character, Les Grossman is brilliantly portrayed,” said the real life Les Grossman.

The historical real-time genesis of the character is at age 21 (May 25, 1969 a few months prior to Woodstock) in Columbia, Maryland. Real Les Grossman made US rock and roll history by co-billing Led Zeppelin and the Who on the same concert stage the only time that happened in the USA. People to this day claim that show as the greatest concert of their life per Led Zeppelin's website. Les also co-created (with super guitarist Ron Culbertson and score director of this project) country rock band Tractor. That instant superstar group did the soundtrack for David Lynch’s first American Film Institute movie "Grandmother". Les Grossman, Ron Culbertson and David Lynch were fraternity brothers during their school boy days.

Tropic Thunder is the iconic movie about actors involved in the making of a big-budget war movie. While filming on set in Thailand, they inadvertently get entangled with real life terrorists instead of other actors. Tom Cruise portrays the intense, somewhat overweight, profanity-spewing, balding producer Les Grossman.

In this series, real Les Grossman plays himself as Dad of mogul Les Grossman.

The man with the moves, super Jewish rapper Eitan G, is casted as mogul Les Grossman. Best friend superstar Rabbi Weiss’s amazingly talented son actor Mo Weiss is the school kid, 21-year old Les Grossman. Gorgeous Jennette McCurdy is in mind for the lead female role. While super television stars Robert Leeshock, DB Sweeney and film star, Australian heartthrob Marco De Rango are candidates for supporting male roles. Four-time Oscar nominated David Lynch is in mind to play himself in a future episode with the goal of finally winning an Emmy. In the meantime, the role of David at age 17 is still open. While, but of course, there’s an open invitation for Tom Cruise to do a walk-on.

The pilot is a carefully executed combination of faction and fiction. Thus, historical facts and events are cleverly fused with imagined ones. Such analogy and reality complement the show’s goal of subliminally improving the world. This project has a promising premise with its philosophy of perpetual betterment.

The Pilgrim's Progress – Coming to Theaters This Easter

New CGI Animated Version of the Beloved Story to be Translated into Dozens of Languages to Support Missions Worldwide

MCKINNEY, TX, USA, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In recent years, faith-based films have proven to be the most effective tool for sharing the essential truths of Christianity worldwide. Classic stories that stand the test of time have the unique power to break down barriers of age, race, nationality, and language. Revelation Media and Cat in the Mill Studios understands this fact, and are preparing to bring the most popular Christian novel of all time – THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS – to U.S. theaters Easter 2019. The film will be shown April 18 and April 20, distributed through Fathom Events.

The first novel written in English, The Pilgrim's Progress has never been out of print and has sold more copies than any Christian book, next to the Bible. Written in 1678 by John Bunyan while in prison for holding religious services, The Pilgrim's Progress is often cited as the greatest allegory ever written.

The 2019 film will be the story’s feature-length theatrical debut, as well as the first CGI animated telling of the timeless tale. Media-driven families can be assured that this centuries-old story can still connect with viewers of all ages.

“More than any other story (outside the Bible), The Pilgrim's Progress has been used to inspire and challenge Christians to set their eyes on God,” explains Executive Producer Steve Cleary. “It has been translated into 200 languages and is known around the world. We are thrilled to offer this tale to a new generation through CGI animation, and are confident that the timeless themes of faith – such as hope, persecution, persistence, doubt, hardships – will resonate in a whole new way.”

Revelation Media is unique in its commitment to creating projects that can first and foremost serve as an asset to missionaries around the globe. Several early scenes from the project were paid for specifically through the film’s Kickstarter campaign, where over 1600 backers gave nearly $150,000 for the completion of the project. This crowdfunding, as well as the support of generous ministry partners including American Family Association, allows Revelation Media to fund the distribution of the film to those working on the mission field.

The Revelation Media team has already targeted the first 20 languages for the film to be re-cut with voices from native speakers. This opens the door for the film to impact restricted nations where the preaching of the Gospel is prohibited and Christians often find persecution. These translations of the film will be donated to missionaries and pastors at no cost and will find a potential audience of over 3 billion people.

After the English-language version of the film is complete, the next target is for the film to be aired on the second largest TV network in Iran. Paralleling the US theatrical events on Easter weekend, over 6 million Iranian citizens will experience The Pilgrim's Progress in their native Farsi.

The team has also already begun the film’s translation into Mandarin and Spanish. Ultimately, the vision is for The Pilgrim's Progress film to be available to viewers speaking over 100 different languages.

Cleary continues, “I have had the honor to visit with persecuted Christians in nearly 40 nations. In each of these countries, The Pilgrim's Progress was known and was an inspiration to Believers. I personally connect with this story on many levels. It is an honor to be producing the first version of this classic masterpiece in CGI animation, and to share its truths in theaters in the USA and around the world.”

The Pilgrim's Progress will be in theaters around the country on April 18 at 7:00pm and April 20 at 12:55pm local time. Tickets for The Pilgrim's Progress are already for sale through Fathom Events or at http://pilgrims.movie.
