T. Nicole Designs Bracelets Included in Celebrity and Talent Gift Bags at 27th Annual Trumpet Awards

Celebrity and Talent Gift Bags for 27th Annual Trumpet Awards to Include T. Nicole Designs Black Onyx Bracelets

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, February 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Houston, Texas based T. Nicole Designs (http://designsbytnicole.com) is pleased to announce a selection of specially designed Black Onyx Bracelets will be included in Celebrity & Talent Gift Bags for the 27th Annual Trumpet Awards, filmed January 18, 2019 and airing February 17, 2019 on Bounce TV.

Brand founder and designer Tanesha Nicole previously partnered with Bounce TV for the 26th Annual Trumpet Awards, which aired January 20, 2018. This year’s gifted bracelets are the fulfillment of the network’s request for her to create a series of bracelet designs incorporating Black Onyx, to represent the show’s theme of empowerment and Black excellence.

Each bracelet incorporates Black Onyx beads, a lion head focal, and meaningful charms, such as the crescent moon. The result is a unique and distinctive adornment that can easily be dressed up or down. Black onyx exudes confidence and since ancient times has been believed to give the wearer the power to survive.

The bracelets are part of the T. Nicole Designs Fidelis Collection. "This Collection came from a personal place, serving as a physical representation of how fierce and determined I can be," said Tanesha in a recent interview. "Some days we have the inner saboteur that tells us that we are weak, that we aren’t good enough. Looking down and seeing a roaring lion head helps to banish negative thoughts and reminds us how determined and strong we all really are."

Tanesha says her clients appreciate that if they are at an event and in a room of 500 other people, the likelihood of seeing someone else with their same jewelry is slim. "My stone choices are what set my designs apart. I love that no single stone is exactly the same as another. Each has nuances that make it individual, just like the wearer."

The Fidelis Collection can be found here.

T. Nicole Designs was founded in 2012. The brand’s jewelry was recently worn by singer/songwriter Votte Hall on the 2019 Grammy's Red Carpet. It has also been worn by character Dro (played by Sarunus J. Jackson) on season 2 of HBO’s “Insecure.” Mr. Talkbox, who has won eight Grammys for his work on Bruno Mar’s “24 Karat” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Loyalty”, wore T. Nicole Designs bracelets during the 2018 Trumpet Awards telecast and in subsequent videos, which have received over 3.3 million views.

T. Nicole Designs is available at http://designsbytnicole.com. Contact Tanesha Nicole by email using the contact button at the top right of this news release. Follow T. Nicole Designs on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest (@TNicoleDesigns).

It all started as a way to keep her mind off of being sick. Tanesha was severely ill, recently released from the hospital, and basically relegated to bed rest for several months. Her family said she needed a hobby; something to distract from the day-to-day drama and that would bring her a sense of control in a world that was in utter chaos. So she began with something she has always loved, gemstones. She could and still does spend hours fawning over gems and get overly giddy when going into the gem and mineral section at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. She made things just for herself, for her mom and sister and to her great surprise people began to ask her about what she was wearing and if she could make something for them.

And so, T. Nicole Designs (http://designsbytnicole.com) was born, like many gemstones, from the extreme pressures of life and formed in seemingly dark and lonely place. But after all that, what was meant as a distraction has emerged from the depths of despair to be something beautiful and beyond her wildest dreams.

T. Nicole Designs works with clients to create that perfect piece that is so personally “you,” or clients may pick one of the brand’s unique designs and make a twist on it to fit individual style and taste.

Submit your music for House Party

Inviting all independent artists to submit their music for the House Party video game and a chance to win cash prizes.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, February 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eek! Games today announced an exciting new competition for all independent musicians to enter their music, to be featured in its House Party Game on PC.
Eek! is inviting all unsigned artists to enter for this unique opportunity to have their music playing in the House Party game, which already has hundreds of thousands of players, with many millions more enjoying streams of the game on YouTube.

Entrants will be able to submit their instrumental soundtracks (or with limited vocals) by nominating themselves through Twitter – @EekGamesLLC, with a link to their music. Following four weeks of nominations and submissions, the Eek! Games team will select the top 40 compositions across 4 music genres (EDM, Chill Beats, Hip Hop beats and Pop). Once the Top-40 list is chosen by the Eek! Team, the songs will be voted upon by the House Party fans and players, who will then help select the final 5 winners.

Eek! Games will award the most voted artist a prize of $1,000 in cash, and $250 each for four runner-ups. The winners music composition will be played throughout the House Party game for players’ enjoyment and to enhance the game experience.

Bobby Ricci, the CEO and Founder of Eek! Games, " It’s time for HOUSE PARTY’s soundtrack to expand past just our one song.

Musicians be warned though, House Party is not your mother’s sim game. It’s quite risqué in nature and touches on topics of debauchery, sex and comedic fun between player and the zany, therapy-needing cast. House Party is this generational “American Pie™” meets “Porky’s™”, but it’s executed in a smart game about choices, which doesn't insult your intelligence. It's fun for males and females, alike, delivering a unique gameplay mechanic through an advanced AI system whereby the player’s every choice influences the reaction and outcome of the game.
The players and community acknowledging it as”One of the most fun dating/hookup sims.”


About Eek Games!
Eek! Games was founded by Bobby Ricci, an experienced programmer, in 2015. “House Party” was its first game release, and was launched on Steam, as an Early Access game in 2017. Even though it was still very premature, the initial reception was surprising and the community built quickly. The game has gone on to sell almost 400,000 copies.

NAMIC and WICT Launch Joint Workforce Diversity Survey

President and CEO of NAMIC

CAE, president and CEO of WICT

Survey Provides Key Ethnic and Gender Diversity Metrics for Cable Industry

The key to advancing diversity & inclusion is access, retention and promotion. This survey data is a critical resource for our industry to review the metrics that reveal opportunities for action.”

— A. Shuanise Washington, NAMIC's president and CEO

NEW YORK, USA, February 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — NAMIC, Inc. (National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications) and WICT (Women in Cable Telecommunications) today announced the launch of a joint survey for the next editions of the NAMIC AIM (Advancement Investment Measurement) and the WICT PAR Initiative (Pay Equity, Advancement Opportunities, and Resources for Work/Life Integration). The survey opened on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019 and closes on Friday, Mar. 15.

NAMIC and WICT have engaged Mercer, a human resources consulting firm, to conduct the joint survey. Funded by the Walter Kaitz Foundation, the survey will focus on the current state of ethnic and gender diversity within the cable and communications industry. The survey will also benchmark data vital to the advancement of ethnic and gender diversity in the media industry and will account for geographical distinctions among the locations of survey participants.

Mercer will independently manage the development of customized data reports for each participating company. Top line findings from this research initiative will be presented at the NAMIC-WICT Diversity Town Hall the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019 in New York City as part of the industry’s Diversity Week.

"NAMIC is excited to collaborate with WICT and the participating media companies in pursuit of our shared goal of increasing opportunities for talented women and people of color,” said A. Shuanise Washington, NAMIC's president and CEO. “The key to advancing diversity and inclusion is access, retention and promotion. This survey data is a critical resource for our industry to review the metrics that track progress and reveal opportunities for action.”

Added Maria E. Brennan, CAE, president and CEO of WICT, “The research is clear. Diverse teams can improve workplace culture, increase problem solving, and boost innovation — all adding to a company’s bottom line. WICT and NAMIC recognize the underlying business case for a diverse and inclusive workplace, which makes the AIM/PAR data a key competitive advantage for our industry. We extend our gratitude to the industry for its recognition of the value that this original research provides.”

Launched in 1999, the NAMIC employment survey, formerly entitled, "A Look Toward Advancement: Multi-ethnic Employment in the Communications Industry," provided a baseline of statistics and perceptions about the state of multi-ethnic diversity in the cable and communications industry.

Rebranded as “NAMIC AIM,” the employment survey provides rich data used by companies to support goals for sustaining a robust pipeline of diverse talent. Key outgrowths of the NAMIC employment survey include the association’s Executive Leadership Development Program (ELDP), presented in partnership with the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, and the NAMIC Leadership Seminars.

Since 2003, the WICT PAR Survey has measured the status of women employees in the cable industry based on three criteria: Pay equity, advancement opportunities and resources for work/life integration. Combined with a comprehensive advocacy program, the PAR Initiative helps companies set goals, institutionalize practices, measure progress and achieve results.

For more information on WICT and the PAR Initiative visit http://wict.org. Additional information on NAMIC and the AIM can be found at http://namic.com.


NAMIC (National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications) is the premier organization focusing on cultural diversity, equity and inclusion in the communications industry.

Global Peace- This is a New Time for More Elite Ways.

Stay Plugged in with the Actress/Pop Star of Global Peace

I've been told "Fantasy!" my whole life…but look where we are now.”


LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, February 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Primadonna with Primadonna Global Mission//Entertainment (PGM//E) has something to say to the world.  She says, “ It's a gentle push upon her right now” The rising motion picture actress and Trance/pop star understands there’s a “New sense in the air and it's very… well let's just say, peaceful!!" She feels it's time to inform you about where things are currently, as a society and globally speaking.  She states she has "Reached a point where she knows it's time to induce her work in motion pictures and with that comes Global Peace." 
Primadonna aka Lieu*Lieu Star suggests that crime- and by crime she means the "lack of",  should be the main focus right now. "No longer should there be murder, destruction or theft.  If it's truly a time of peace, which I think most of us should detect in the atmosphere, then all should contribute to ensure this peace.” She states, “If a criminal chooses to kill, steal or destroy in this time, the appropriate measures should take place. A life behind bars. It may just be the best thing for each criminal anyhow." Very determined, she finishes by saying she “Understands hearts need to be changed. That’s the underlying reason for crime.” For her detailed (no crime list) go see http://primadonnaofficial.com/global-peace-new-time/, to her Media page.   

Furthermore, yet on the same note regarding crime, she boldly speaks, "There should be no more murdering/butchering of animals (all animals, fish, foul, land and sea creatures/rodents/insects/etc…). These murders must stop!! Why? Because this is a time of Global Peace.” She realizes that people will see this as a mere dream but she states, “It’s a simple thing to do."  See here for extra wisdom keys.

More modern in nature at this point the actress speaks, “There should be a new system for our food. There needs to be an innovation  that the entire world can get fed with.  It should be rich with fortifying nutrients, that should last the whole day.  It should be a gift to the less fortunate."

The last viewpoint Primadonna gives has to do with the EU and who should rise to prominence there.  She said-  "Concerning the EU's place in this world and who should achieve prominence within their system, I feel it should be Alexis Tsipras from Greece. He has been the mark in getting Greece's debt to a suitable mark and in the most rapid fashion, he's helped Macedonia regain its rightful name status and possesses the gifts required for such a position as EU head.  These gifts pertain to economy, leadership, charisma, strictness, charm and an easy flow throughout performing his global duties."

Victorious Valentine's Celebration Over Samsung's Use of Hope for Children – Cancelled

Living an abuse free life…is more than a hope or a dream…

Valentine’s Day is a great time to express love to all.

Honoring Mr. James W. Hope and wife Mrs. Fannie L. Hope

Valentine's Day is Approaching – Give a Gift to Hope for Children Foundation and Receive a Certificate to Honor Your Loved One

Valentine's Day is approaching. We ask for your financial gift of love, expressed generously by donating to Hope for Children Foundation. We are recovering financially from the past five years…”

— Patricia Kirby Rasmussen

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, February 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Patricia Kirby Rasmussen is the Co-Founder of Hope for Children Foundation and said, “Hope for Children Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit children's charity organization founded for the prevention of cruelty to children, has prevailed in its lawsuit against Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd. Cancellation Number 9205811 in the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. The U.S. Trademark Registration Number 5,409,810 was awarded to Hope for Children Foundation.” Samsung, is a Korean-based company, and temporarily used part of its name Hope for Children, as part of an overall marketing scheme.

Hope for Children Foundation, reclaimed its name in the Trademark Office in an Order. Mrs. Rasmussen stated, “The U.S. Trademark Appeals Board Order concluded: The petition for cancellation is sustained on the ground of likelihood of confusion in connection with Respondent’s International Class 36 services. Registration No. 4132441 shall be partially cancelled in due course. Hope for Children Foundation, is steadfast in its resolve to defend its name, mission and purpose in the face of all unjust opposition.”

Patricia explained, “The unfortunate four-year battle against Samsung expended much of our time and resources. Shortly after Hope for Children Foundation prevailed in the U. S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board Office, attacks continued against Hope for Children Foundation. Several other entities are tricking the public by advertising and using our name, raising funds without our permission, and keeping the funds. Also, our Website was hacked, with attempts to destroy it. Our Website traffic was misdirected to other unauthorized Websites, along with other shocking and bad activities.”

Patricia reminded us, “Valentine’s Day is approaching. We ask for your financial gift of love, expressed generously by donating to Hope for Children Foundation. We are recovering financially from the past five years of various unjustified attacks. Your donation will make a big difference in the lives of so many children across America.”
Valentine’s Day represents a time to really show those you love how deeply you care for them. This time is so much more than just flowers or giving chocolates. It's a time to reflect and appreciate the ones you love in life, and more importantly to thank them for being next to you through the thick and the thin, ups and downs of life. This could be your spouse, significant other, best friend, a family member, neighbor, school, church or work colleague.

The tricky part to Valentine's Day is picking out the right gift. The gift as you know does not have to be store bought. Some of the most meaningful gifts are hand-made as well as the Valentine’s card you might give. When you wonder about the right gift to give, let’s turn to the philosophy that your gift should reflect the person who is receiving the gift. There is a gift that suits pretty much everyone. For those who like to live life to the fullest, a gift of an experience, such as a spa retreat, a fun cooking class, an art class, or even off the beaten path tour of the countryside, rather than a traditional gift, is a winner. And if the person you're gifting is true to the Valentine's Day tradition; a beautiful floral bouquet and/or chocolate can do no harm.

Hope for Children Foundation Gala

Allow us to share a loving heartfelt time with those we love at the Hope for Children Foundation Gala just one and a half months ago. View:

This video helps one understand how to become more involved with the magic of loving and celebrating the precious lives of children and families across the United States. You are invited to join the celebration!”
Patricia happily remarked, “We hope this helps you get started with your Valentine's Day plans. Hope for Children Foundation sincerely hopes you have a loving and memorable time with your loved ones. Happy Valentine’s Day! On behalf of the children and adults served by 'Hope for Children Foundation's' board of directors, staff, volunteers and supporters, a huge THANK YOU is extended to you for your possible new commitment, ongoing support and involvement.

The people during this time were getting eaten by a vicious species of Dragon. The ruling King finally orders the total annihilation of all living dragons. A powerful wizard, named Merlinus, who is a friend to the king, does not agree with the Kings order, for Merlinus knows all Dragons are not what they seem.

So, he does what he must to protect a family of Dragons that he had befriended. And to protect his Dragon friends, Melinus performs the spell of weightlessness and tells the Dragons to fly up and to hide in the cover of the Clouds. An unforeseen ability of the Dragons weightlessness spell is that a Dragons fire now looks like that of lightning and their roar is like that of thunder. Melinus tells the Dragons to live within the clouds and to only come down at night to eat. An apprentice to the wizard who has grandeur of his own has a plan for Dragons that he has hidden deep within a mountain cavern. Now enters a widowed mother, her young boy, who had also befriended a dragon, though a very young one.

They suddenly find themselves caught between the Kings order and a battle that has begun between two species of Dragons. A battle that would determine control of the skies above the Kingdom of Albian. This Apprentice’s plan has consequences that may bring the Kingdom and perhaps the very world we live in today to a devastating end.

FrontGate Media: Your Gateway to the Christian Audience

We are thrilled to bring Odyssey Impact's documentaries to new audiences in Faith communities around the country changing the world by telling powerful true stories leading to conversation and healing”

— Scott A. Shuford, Founder and President of FrontGate Media

ORANGE COUNTY, CA, USA, February 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ODYSSEY IMPACT, known for their ability to harness the power of film to create grassroots community impact campaign, has just begun a partnership with FRONTGATE MEDIA, one of the world’s leading Faith and Family marketing agencies. FrontGate will join with Odyssey Impact to launch and execute campaigns that engage community leaders and influencers with Odyssey Impact’s riveting documentaries and social initiatives through Publicity and FrontGate's proprietary Blogger Networks.

The first documentary will be the powerful true story chronicled in THE RAPE OF RECY TAYLOR. Nominated for Best Documentary in the 2018 NAACP Image Awards, THE RAPE OF RECY TAYLOR shares the story that became a catalyst for the civil rights movement. Recy Taylor was a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper in 1944 Alabama when she was gang-raped by six white boys as she walked home from church. While this was a common occurrence in the area, few women spoke up for fear of their lives. Recy was a brave woman who chose to identify and speak out against her rapists. The NAACP sent its rape investigator – Rosa Parks – to Alabama, who rallied support and triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice.

HEALING THE HEALERS presents 5 short 15-minute documentaries, all conversations led by Rev. Matt Crebbin. Crebbin’s life was forever changed on December 14, 2012, when he received word of a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school. As the pastor of Sandy Hook’s Newtown Congregational Church, Crebbin and his fellow local faith leaders went into immediate crisis mode, trying to manage their own trauma and the demands of media, all while supporting victims, emergency workers, families, and community members. HEALING THE HEALERS is a resource to inspire a sacred flood of support for faith leaders who are suffering themselves as they serve others in the midst of an emergency or disaster, helping them identify ways they can acknowledge and personally recover from trauma while ministering to their hurting communities.

“FrontGate understands our passion for sharing each other’s stories – especially through the eyes of Faith,” states Nick Stuart, CEO of Odyssey Impact. “We are excited to partner with FrontGate to increase our film screenings and bring these powerful stories to the Christian audience. Faith is a key element in every part of life: personal and communal. We hope our documentaries encourage the Christian audience to speak out, seek justice, and find hope in all situations.”

“Odyssey Impact has an amazing commitment to changing the world by telling powerful true stories,” shares Scott A. Shuford, Founder, and President of FrontGate Media. “We are thrilled to bring these documentaries to new audiences in Faith communities around the country to inspire film screenings that lead to conversation, healing, and understanding.”
