Actress Elizabeth Stanton on Why People Miss Travel So Much During the Pandemic

"Traveling allows you to break your normal routine and live fully in the present. It allows you to experience life from new perspectives." – Elizabeth Stanton

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, July 7, 2020 / — Michael Brein, Ph.D., a social psychologist and author with a specialty in travel, points to Maslow’s pyramid, which illustrates the hierarchy of human needs. Once your basic physiological and safety needs are satisfied, you can begin ascending the pyramid. You fulfill your psychological desire for belonging and love; then develop your self-esteem; and ultimately reach self-actualization, way at the top of the pyramid. If you’re a frequent flyer, you may be satisfying your psychological needs, growing your confidence and achieving self-actualization all through the act of travel. This these is well done however, it might be causing some problems for some as the coronavirus pandemic has made traveling difficult and dangerous. Thus, some people are not able to continue to grow themselves and their self-confidence as they are stuck at home not being able to do the thing that gives them happiness.

It seems that Actress and host of The CW’s World Funniest Animals, Elizabeth Stanton, sees this idea in the same way when she is in an airplane, she is on board with it. “Travel allows you to experience life from new perspectives. The feeling of getting off a plane and immersing yourself into other peoples lives and cultures never gets old because there’s always something new,” proclaims Stanton.

Elizabeth Stanton has been a world traveler her entire life, experiencing the culture of Europe, the wonders of the Far East, and the natural beauty of remote destinations. She started hosting “Elizabeth Stanton’s Great Big World” at the age of 15, and it was watched in 90% of the United States at its peak and is the top-rated show on FOX affiliates nationwide. In the show, she travels the globe with her celebrity friends exploring other cultures, learning about history, and finding opportunities to help those in need, while shedding some light on what others less fortunate are dealing with. The show featured stars like Bailee Madison, Jake T. Austin, Gregg Sulkin, and Anna Maria Perez de Tagle, and filmed in places all over the world, from the USA to Nicaragua to Paris to Beijing. She continues to film new episodes of Great Big World, which has been running for nine years and this is now the 10th year in which it continues to remain strong. Through all of these experiences, Stanton clearly is one of the people whose very livelihood gets fulfilled through travel.

For men and women who travel extensively for work, the travel, or the constant sense of being in motion, becomes a part of their identity. “Travel is so stimulating and memorable,” Michael Brein, Ph.D states. “We remember our connections with people more than anything else. And it happens so fast and furiously. We get rewarded with self-esteem and self-confidence. Travel puts you in a situation where new stimuli and novelty is coming at you so fast, and the more that it engulfs you and you incorporate it in your life, the more you grow as a person.”

Elizabeth Stanton is a champion for such thesis’ being made and states, “I love meeting new people and eating local foods. Traveling allows you to break your normal routine and live fully in the present. Travel becomes not just the way we derive satisfaction, but the lens through which others see us and, ultimately, how we see ourselves. I can’t wait to travel again.” Time will tell to see when the world will fall back in order and allow normal travel for everyone. Being patient and waiting will have to be the remedy as of now for those who are not allowed to travel due to this pandemic.

STAN LEE UNIVERSE Predicted to be a "Powerful and Positive Educational Tool"

Genus Brands International, Inc. (NASDAQ:GNUS)

STAN LEE UNIVERSE could very well be a powerful educational and personal and social behavior tool.”

— James E. Shaw, Ph.D.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA , USA , July 7, 2020 / — He wrote his media-heralded book, JACK AND JILL, WHY THEY KILL, after his four-year doctoral research inside California's youth prisons, on girls and boys incarcerated for homicide and murder. He has discussed bullying, campus behaviors, teacher training, and other pressing school safety issues on "Good Morning, America"; "NBC Today"; "Bill O'Reilly Show"; "ABC and Deborah Duncan"; "CBS Eyewitness News"; CNN; and MSNBC. Megan Kelly, then on Fox News, reached out to him following the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. As a public speaker, he has been with the renowned Jodi Solomon Speakers Bureau since 2001.

He is Dr. James E. Shaw, and why does he think a current Wall Street stock may inspire elementary and high school teachers with new classroom ideas? Shaw says, "After reading information about the STAN LEE UNIVERSE, represented by a Wall Street stock called "Genius Brands" (GNUS), I said, 'Great! Teachers everywhere might see possibilities for using the late and great Stan Lee's Kartoon Channel! and the characters in Avengers Endgame, Ms. Marvel, Black Panther, and many more, to inspire and motivate their students with fresh and new ideas for acceptable and safe social and personal conduct."

Since 2003, Shaw has been on the Panel of Experts of the Los Angeles Superior Court. He has also been called to consult on cases for Military Courts-Martial and the United States Court. He also teaches Psychology in university doctoral programs (Cal Southern University and the Chicago School of Professional Psychology). Shaw is a former Director of Child Welfare and Attendance for the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District. As part of his duties there, he also served on the Norwalk Multi-Gang Task Force, and conducted Truancy Court at the Norwalk Superior Court.

Shaw says that in his career as an educator, researcher, and expert witness, "I have often seen and worked with human beings at their worst." Shaw adds, Currently, turbulent times are all but consuming us. We are experiencing national and international protests over the increasing near-epidemic of police officers shooting-to-kill black Americans, as well as the as-yet uncontrollable COVID-19 virus." Through STAN LEE UNIVERSE, teachers everywhere might possibly find fresh and new ways to gain and keep the attention of their students and focus them on safe and workable personal, social, and intergroup interactions? Shaw answers, "Yes! Through STAN LEE UNIVERSE, teachers might find and adapt means and methods for inspiring and motivating their students." Shaw adds "psychologists, sociologists, police officers, rabbis and other members of the clergy, and university professors might also find gold nuggets in the STAN LEE UNIVERSE, to inspire and encourage their clients, congregations, and detainees."

Minnesota Actor Joe Keith Weighs in on Theater Event Promotion

Joe Keith, St. Paul Minnesota

Joe Keith, St. Paul Minnesota

Joe Keith of St. Paul, Minnesota explains how to maximize your exposure when organizing a theatre event.

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, UNITED STATES, July 7, 2020 / — It is one thing to create an amazing show with everything from talented performers and crew to exciting staging. It is another thing to promote that ‘must-see’ show with great production values for your prospective audience to hear about it and attend your show.

“This promotion means more work since all the effort put into the creation of the show won’t mean much if you don’t tell the world about it and get people to attend,” says Minnesota actor, Joe Keith.

However, with commitment, promoting your show can be done successfully even on a small budget. There are some methods that have proven effective in theater event promotion which you may find useful. These strategies, suggested by Joe Keith, will help you in obtaining the publicity you need to promote your show.

Joe Keith explains one of the many ways to promote your theater event on a small budget is through news interviews and press releases. To use this strategy, you need to build an inclusive media list of people who you want to receive your news and write about them. Every vital media contact such as arts and events bloggers, magazines, local and regional newspapers, weeklies, radio stations, and TV stations should be on your list. You can use these contacts to promote your event by writing and sending dynamic press releases promoting your show along with all the important details.

Also, creating a buzz about your show on social media can get you the publicity your show needs. Adding a small video of the performers introducing themselves, or a trailer of your show to your Instagram and Facebook story can help. Consider picking a memorable hashtag for your show. Use this hashtag when tweeting or posting on Instagram, and encourage your audience to use it too. You may also want to offer discounted tickets, freebies, or roll out contests on social media platforms to promote your show.

Another strategy is Q & A. Consider taking your production team to the park or any other public place. Spend some time to talk about your show and why it is cool. You can entertain questions from the audience and in this way, get them interested enough to attend your show.

Word of mouth is also a very popular referral source, especially for theater events. In addition to being an incredibly easy promotional method, word of mouth is very effective in increasing awareness and ticket sales. You can encourage everyone to attend your show and to bring a friend. The outcome is pretty obvious; your ticket sales would double! You and your team can utilize the effectiveness of word of mouth to encourage everyone in your team to bring family and friends who you think would be interested in your show.

“Your show deserves to be seen, so you need to utilize these strategies to get it out there. There are many strategies that may prove effective in your theater event promotion, but these can help you achieve significant publicity on a smaller budget.” Joe Keith Stated.

JayQ The Legend’s ‘Amazing Girl’ soars to the top of the UK and US Charts… it’s going to be an Amazing Girl Summer

JayQ The Legend - Amazing Girl

JayQ The Legend – Amazing Girl

“I hoped this song would catch quickly”, says JayQ The Legend “it is time we celebrate and respect women, and show them how truly amazing they are!”

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 7, 2020 / — Amazing Girl has captured the hearts of women worldwide, soaring to the top of the US and UK charts. A high energy, uplifting song, an anthem to women, is just what the world has ordered. “I hoped this song would catch quickly”, says JayQ The Legend “it is time we celebrate and respect women, and show them how truly amazing they are!”

JayQ The Legend shows consistency as he follows up on his international success of Body Talk, which reached number one on the Billboard Reggae Digital Song Charts, attaining top spot on the Reggae iTunes Charts, hitting number ten on the Music Week Urban Club Charts, number fifteen on Hip Hop iTunes Charts, top 30 on Billboard R&B song Charts & US terrestrial UAC radio, as well as featuring on National Rotation on BETJAMS and BETSOUL.

The JayQ The Legend (BreakOut Music) song is called “Amazing Girl”, a kick off to AMAZING GIRL SUMMER, a summer dedicated to celebrating women everywhere and the intelligence and fortitude and care they bring to humanity in these uncertain times.

“Amazing Girl” – written by JayQ The Legend and co-produced by 1500 or Nothing – is dedicated to all the incredible women out there who are making a difference in the world. The list is long and illustrious, and spans from athletes, such as Mia Hamm, Kristi Yamaguchi and Serena Williams to artists, scientists, business women, and politicians such as Misty Copeland, Tiero Fletcher (Guinn) and Jennifer Doudna, Gabby Gifford, and Glenda McNeal.

BreakOut Music CEO, Miriam Bavly, a Harvard graduate, screenwriter and producer said:

“Amazing women come in all colors and creeds. We need to recognize that every girl is an amazing woman about to blossom: Cathy Hughes, whom I met and admire, built Radio One from the ground up, with the cards stacked against her. It is mind-boggling what she achieved. Look around her organization, she walks the walk, clearly dedicated to empowering other women.”

Of course, many amazing women are still not in the limelight. JayQ The Legend said:,

“It is time to highlight women and their daily contributions to humanity, this is what my song is about, to express how amazing women truly are. In my personal life, my incredible mother overcame abuse, and made incredible sacrifices, to give her children better lives. Mothers around the world are heroines every day, loving, nurturing, and fiercely protecting their children. So many women do so many amazing things every day. Women must be at every level of control, power, and politics that affect our society and planet. They must be increasingly involved in politics and business at the executive level, wherever and whenever crucial decisions are made.”

Stefan Toren, Head of A&R at A&R Factory said:

“JayQ The Legend is one of the fastest growing artists in his genre, with over 250k Instagram followers, he’s captured a market that is hungry for his fresh and infectiously happy sound.”

In addition to his latest release, JayQ The Legend is the mastermind behind the soundtrack for the upcoming Christmas movie, “The App that Stole Christmas”, where he also plays a supporting role to good friends, Ray J and Jack Long.
