Legislative package received strong support from the entertainment industry which had highly publicized cases of sexual misconduct in recent years.

The Law Office of Curt Surls (N/A:N/A)

California’s legislative actions are in line with a growing trend among states … Many states are enacting or amending laws to strengthen the protection against sexual harassment in recent years”

— Curt Surls, Employment Lawyer

MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 / — California Governor Jerry Brown recently signed four bills that toughen the protection against sexual harassment in the workplace. The bills were part of a legislative package that received strong support from the entertainment industry, which had to deal with numerous cases of highly publicized cases of sexual misconduct in recent years. California Employment Lawyer Curt Surls commented on these bills.

Senate Bill 820 deals with confidentiality provisions in settlements relating to sexual misconduct. Specifically, settlement agreements “that prevents the disclosure of factual information related to a claim filed in a civil action or a complaint filed in an administrative action . . . is prohibited”, if such agreement is regarding sexual assault, sexual harassment, workplace sexual harassment or discrimination, or sexual harassment or discrimination by owner of housing accommodation. The bill also prohibits courts from entering any order that prohibits the disclosure of such information. Interestingly, the bill does contain an exception that allows the claimant to request the inclusion of a confidentiality provision to keep such information private. While the purpose of such exception is understandable, it remains to be seen as to whether the exception could eventually swallow the whole, especially if most defendants or accused will simply require the claimant to request such a confidentiality provision as a condition of settlement.

Senate Bill 826 requires California public companies to have at least 1 female board of director by end of 2019. Then, by 2021, any public company with 5 board of directors must have at least 2 female directors and any public company with 6 or more board of directors must have at least 3 female directors. The presence of female decision makers on the board have been advocated by sexual harassment experts as a way of meaningfully impacting the corporate response to sexual harassment and discrimination problems.

Senate Bill 1300 and 1343 seek to broaden the scope of protection by sexual harassment laws. Specifically, Senate Bill 1300 strengthens employer liability where sexual misconduct is committed by independent contractors and non-employees in the course of business. This was viewed as a very important measure by the entertainment industry. Senate Bill 1343 strengthens employer requirements pertaining to sexual harassment training.

Mr. Surls notes that "California’s legislative actions are in line with a growing trend among states across the United States. Many states are enacting or amending laws to strengthen the protection against sexual harassment in recent years."

“Jazz On A Summer's Day” 60th Anniversary Edition – 1958 Newport Jazz Festival

Bert Stern's acclaimed film of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival is newly restored for its 60th Anniversary

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, October 17, 2018 / — “Jazz on a Summer's Day” is one of the greatest concert movies ever made, a timeless record of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, with some of the most stunning images of live music ever brought to the cinema screen.

Conceived by stills photographer Bert Stern (Vogue magazine, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn) and brilliantly filmed over three days in August 1958, “Jazz On A Summer's Day” provided the template for future concert documentaries such as Monterey and Woodstock.

Interspersing footage of the crowd and fashions of late Fifties America, the America's Cup yacht race with artists live on stage and largely devoid of dialogue, Stern's fluid form perfectly echoes the jazz vibe tempering a fly-on-the-wall documentary style with surreal, dreamlike flourishes.

Although the festival featured a glittering array of jazz giants such as Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Anita O'Day, Dinah Washington, George Shearing, and Gerry Mulligan, the event encompassed far more. Chuck Berry duck-walked his way to rock glory, Big Maybelle provided her powerhouse R&B and the magnificent Mahalia Jackson delivered gospel in a manner that demonstrated what true soul was all about.

In 1999, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

Bert Stern's acclaimed film of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival is newly restored for its 60th Anniversary by Richard J Whittaker of FX with DVD authoring by Ray Shulman at I-Sonic while the soundtrack has been digitally remastered for CD by Peter Reynolds at Reynolds Mastering and for the first time ever, mastered at half-speed by Barry Grint at Alchemy Studios on two 33 1/3 rpm audiophile Vinyl LPs.

Released on Charly Records, the special edition comes housed in a lavish, blue-foil blocked fully-illustrated 40-page hardback book complete with new, definitive sleeve notes by Mojo's Fred Dellar, including artist and track-by-track details.

DVD extras include an interview with Bert Stern, an introduction to “Jazz on a Summer's Day,” artist biographies and photo gallery.

• Complete film DVD + bonus
documentary + extras
• Newly-remastered soundtrack
on CD
• 2 x 10-inch LPs mastered
half-speed on audiophile vinyl
• 40-page lavishly illustrated
hardback book

Tier3D’s MindStudio auto generates real-world games & videos from a script and situation

Tier3D’s MindStudio uses crowdsourced Mind* Artificial Intelligence cloud to auto-generate real-world games & videos from a script and situation.

MILPITAS, CA, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 / — Tier3D, a Silicon Valley company is creating a crowdsourced Artificial Intelligence cloud and a radical new design for a phone, watch, & Mixed Reality glass, which along with their MindStudio software, auto-generates a new genre of real-world games & videos from a script and situation.
Shalender Singh, the CEO and a founder of Tier3D explained that “Tier3D Mind* cloud is designed to learn and model everything in the world, living beings and objects, including their behavior and interactions. The Tier3D MindStudio software can time-evolve and predict the future of any situation based on learned interactions and associations. This allows you to simply pick and place people (or objects) from a library of existing models into video captures and Tier3D MindStudio auto-generates many possible photorealistic videos. It also has a natural language interface to help you craft your composition directly, and naturally, from a script and assets. The gamification capability lets you start from a script and even have real-life people join the ‘scene’, and the AI then auto-evolves the world according to these newer additions. You can also create games where an AI avatar of the player keeps playing the game even when the real person is not connected to it.”
Srini Srinivasan (noted silicon valley investor) and a founder of Tier3D elaborated that “Another cool feature in the AI-driven gamification is forking of multiple worlds, each with its own new tweaks, and maybe one scenario results in utopia and another in a dystopic outcome. You can be a game maker god, starting with real-life footage, and then tweak different versions of your worlds to your heart’s content by naturally interacting with the AI bot, and producing the ultimate set of games.”
Vishnupriya Singh, the COO and a founder of Tier3D added that “Tier3D watch, phone, and glass are specially designed to enable crowdsourcing of AI models. The web interface allows crowdsourcing of AI algorithms, games and content, and monetization by the creators. Tier3D is creating a sustainable eco-system for AI generation & we expect that the customers of Tier3D will be drawn to the system for many reasons, including its AI-driven gamification and utilities.

Chart-Topping Rappers' Hottest New Pick: RaHTwo Five Reveals Secrets of Success to Hip Hop Artists

I want to tell other artists that you have to know yourself, believe in yourself, have good self esteem, have faith, know what you want, and not stop until you get it.”

— Rah TwoFive

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 16, 2018 / — Chart-Topping Rappers and many more have worked with one of Raps fastest rising new stars RaH TwoFive, who is one of the hottest new picks for some of the music industries biggest stars.

As reported earlier on ABC News, The Los Angeles based singer known on Instagram as RahTwoFive, or otherwise simply known as RaH, has racked up over a half-million new plays and growing, on the leading music streaming site SoundCloud. He has also recently launched an exciting new crowdfunding campaign, incorporating his official new fan club, at Patreon, here below.

RaH raps success against all odds, in his hot new song “Super Winner,” as seen in his official music video for the song also here below. RaH states that the song is about believing in himself, knowing he can achieve his goals, knowing that any obstacle will not stop him, and that in the end he will be a winner. RaH also urges other artists to have good self-esteem, have faith in God, know what they want, and don't stop until they get it. RaH adds, "You need to constantly redirect your focus to stay in the path towards greatness. At the same time, be fluid to new opportunities that arise at new levels that were previously unseen."

You can listen to Super Winner at the link here below:

As noted in his official biography, “Hailing from Detroit, RaH is ready to dominate not only America, but also the massive Indian Bollywood market, Europe, and the rest of the world as well. Speaking and singing in fluent English, RaH, who is of Indian origin, also speaks fluent Hindi, Punjabi, and even some Spanish.”

His biography also notes that ‘With the first three letters of his full name; “Rahul,” turning into his artist name, RaH got his nickname back in high school, which his friends used to call him. RaH states, “I think it’s cool, because it’s the name of the Sun God of Egyptian mythology, and I love the sun! My family and I traveled to Egypt around the same time I got the nickname, and it just stuck.”

RaH adds that he is really into fashion, and started a fashion label, and loves the colors and clothing styles in Egypt such as gold and turquoise. He also adds that he started reading and studying about Egyptian mythology, and really got into it.

With a love of music, and an array of musical influences, RaH stated earlier on ABC news that he is influenced by “People who are not afraid to express their true feelings, even if it’s controversial to the general public.” Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Usher, Diddy, The Weekend, and Billy Joel have influenced the young singer, adding that he is influenced by “artists who perform at a super-high level, and take their artistry beyond the music; into short films, and amazing shows.” Michael Jackson, he reveals, is probably his biggest influence, from his music, to his dance, to his fashion, videos, and more.

RaH is also heavily into dance and choreography, having joined a hip hop dance group in college, and also learning and performing the Punjabi style of dance from India. RaH says that he plans to include some of his dance work in some of his future videos.

As discussed earlier on Fox News, RaH stated that as teenager, he began to love singing, and released his first song at just seventeen, getting he says, “A really good response.” He then realized that music was something he wanted to seriously pursue. Now with nine solid tracks out, and two outstanding music videos to his credit for “Super Winner” and “Purple Tears” seen below, RaH’s passion is quickly paying off, with an impressive and rapidly growing fan base.

If having to label his music, RaH states that his “music is based in hip hop and R&B, but that it has a jazz, lounge, and pop feel to it, and wants to mix genres, not being stuck into any one style or genre.”

Advising other artists as his success grows, RaH encourages other singers and musicians, RaH reported earlier on NewsBlaze, “Don’t give up! Continuously perfect your craft by fixing your weak points. Believe in yourself more than anyone else, and know inside that one-hundred-percent for sure, you will reach your goals!” summing up his life philosophy, RaH says.

Further, maintaining his positive mindset, RaH says he is “intent on creating an immense, positive impact on the world through heart-changing art.” He credits his hope and faith with keeping him grounded, and optimistic. He reveals; “If I didn’t stay positive, there would be no hope. I feel my mission is to help lessen the division that exists in America and the world, and lessen this negativity on Earth, to really help people see and feel real love.”

RaH adds, “I can’t wait for you all to hear and see my new songs and see my videos. You can stay up to date on my Instagram, which will feature news of all the new releases. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! I love creating and sharing with you, and thank you for believing in me!”

Star of Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Releases New Music, "It's My Turn to Fly," "Here We Go" and "Summer Loving," Along With New Website:

No one can hurt you. If you believe in yourself and look around, you will quickly realize that it’s hard to be understood and accepted as a beautiful swan when you’re swimming in a lake full of ducks!”

“One of my favorite stories is Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Ugly Duckling,’ Miller says. “There are a lot of messages in it but what I always took from it, and still do now, is the moment the ugly duckling realizes he is a beautiful swan. Although many will criticize and bully you and would have you believe you don’t fit in, no one can hurt you. If you believe in yourself and look around, you will quickly realize that it’s hard to be understood and accepted as a beautiful swan when you’re swimming in a lake full of ducks,” Miller continued.

“‘It’s My Turn to Fly’ was inspired by that incredible moment of self-empowerment when you realize that you are amazing and strong, as you prepare to spread your wings and take flight – and all of the excitement, wonder, fear, question, responsibility and triumph that goes with it,” Miller said. The new single is available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify and at Miller’s new website,

Lisa will be on SiriusXM Volume Channel 106 with Lou Simon on October 21, 2018 at 8:30pm (PT) to discuss her father's music and legacy.

Miller is the producer of the hit musical, “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show,” currently in its 9th season.

Lisa has released several songs including “It’s Time,” “This is the Moment” and “Today,” also available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. She made her debut as a songwriter with her 2016 EP releases, "Hello You" and "My Turn Begins Today."

Miller has many projects in the pipeline, including the launch of two publishing companies – LDM Publishing LLC and Ron Miller Songbook Publishing.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2018 / — IT Governance USA, the leading provider of information security and EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) consultancy and training, is delighted to announce its first Certified EU GDPR Foundation Training Course in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Attendees of this one-day classroom course will learn about the following:

After this date, U.S. organizations found in breach of the GDPR may face fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (about $24 million) – whichever is greater – and suffer reputational damage.

“Training is key to achieving best practice in data protection and information security,” said Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance.
“Our high-quality training courses have been designed to equip those at the forefront of data security with the knowledge and skills to implement controls for the prevention of data breaches. We’re pleased to offer a choice of GDPR training formats to suit their needs and circumstances.”
