David Done's The Hunt for Mr. Chippers introduces the characters of a great hunting dog, a courageous cat, an intelligent goldfish, and a wonderful mouse. Their great adventure begins when a ten-year-old boy takes them home and makes them live together as a family. While they're getting all the love and care from the boy, they find out that the wonderful mouse is missing. They gather and make a plan to rescue their friend mouse. Will the courageous cat, intelligent goldfish, and great hunting dog succeed?

In the literary field, children's books have always been one of the most critical sources to write considering the audience that it targets.

David Done's piece of work is one source that does not only offer an enjoyable story, but it also brings an important lesson about friendship. It entails the importance of being effective in the society by getting along well with others.

The Hunt for Mr. Chippers contains wonderfully created illustrations alongside the story that will make the reading amusing and more interesting. This children’s book by David Done is definitely a must-read. It is meant to stay in the hearts of the younger crowd for a long period of time!

About the Author:
David Done is married, a father of three children and a grandfather of 4. His hobbies are woodworking, crafts, oil painting, writing screenplays and has a passion for writing children's stories. He has always loved animals and has had pets growing up. David always wondered and imagined what animals would be like if they could act and talk just like you and me.

The Rangers at Pointe-du-Hoc will mark the 22nd film focused on the personal stories of World War II produced by Tim Gray Media and the World War II Foundation and also the fifth collaboration with Executive Producer David F. Alfonso and TGM/WWII Foundation.

Inspirational Singer-Songwriter-Activist Rahn Anthoni Hits The "Highway" With New Country-Soul Sound

Rahn Anthoni releases his new single, “Highway”

Rahn Anthoni

Rahn Anthoni

Atlanta-based award-winning inspirational singer-songwriter and activist, Rahn Anthoni has released his new "country-soul" single and video, "Highway."

ATLANTA, GA, USA, January 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Atlanta-based award-winning Christian artist Rahn Anthoni took the international press and airwaves by storm with 2017's most inspirational track, "I'll Trust You." The song earned him a Radio Music Award and an Indie Music Channel Award, and numerous other accolades, including the Man-Up Award, for his charity work. Rahn's history with inspirational music has helped him develop a positive relationship with God and the world of song. Despite the heartbreaking circumstances surrounding the death of his special needs son, Aaron Hatcher, Rahn has been able to turn tragedy to triumph, delivering a message of hope and love to the masses.

Encouraged by the support the country music world showed his r&b-flavored music, Rahn has returned with an ambitious new "country soul" tune, that's reminiscent of Darius Rucker, Charley Pride and other soulful country artists. "Highway" was written by Rahn, and it tells of his journey from tragedy to triumph, looking back on the story of his life.

Rahn says, "Highway' is an inspiring life song about the road you are on. When we go through things in life, they take us where we need to be, at the time of the inspiration. Look at the road of life as a 'highway,' and stay on that road of success. When we have a chance to live a life of gratitude, we take the right road, and love all, no matter what. 'Highway' is the way of life."

"Highway" is now available for pre-sale on iTunes. The worldwide release date is set for January 19th, 2018.

ABOUT RAHN ANTHONI: Christian R&B/Hip Hop artist, Rahn Anthoni got his first break singing back-up for Dottie Peoples. He is the former host of "Starpower" on The BET Network, as well as having appeared in Thina Films' "Good Deed." Utilizing his experience and growing interest and knowledge in TV and film, Anthoni developed "The Rahn Anthoni Show," which has received over 1 millions views on Eotm TV. In 2015, Anthoni reached a career high, covering The Oscars Red Carpet for Eotm Media Group. Then tragedy struck…Rahn Anthoni lost his special needs son, Aaron, to abuse, allegedly by his son's teacher. From tragedy, comes triumph…This event inspired Anthoni to become an advocate for special needs kids. The Aaron Hatcher Awards are given every year, in honor of his late son, Aaron Hatcher. Anthoni also started the Special Needs Rock Awards and They Can't Talk But We Can, a non-profit organization providing advocacy for children with disabilities.

Todd Kassal Hopes To Plan Event For People With No Valentines

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It's that time of the year again. Many single people are without a Valentine for the day of love called Valentine's Day. But Todd Kassal is hoping to plan an event on this day for those without that special someone.

"Last year I decided I was tired of Valentine's Day being about not having a date or anything to do," says Kassal. "Also, I realized many of my friends are in the same boat. So I just decided to throw a party for us. It went so well I've decided to reach out to others who feel the same way about the day."

While Kassal's small event last year was just for friends, he hopes to have a significant gathering next month. Just because someone is single does not mean they shouldn't enjoy the day.

But do not fool the event as singles meeting one another. It's not about looking for love but celebrating your freedom as a person.

"Many people would say Valentine's Day is has come commercialized and has gone away with the showing love aspect," says Kassal. "This event will become something that single people attend and have a good time on their own."

Kassal has talked to friends who scramble to find dates for Valentine's Day. They then sit through a horrible evening with someone they will not see again. Instead of enjoying the day on their own, they become left with an uneventful night. Kassal hopes the gathering will change that for years to come.

"Why not do something fun with others in the same situation?" asks Kassal. "No pressure to find a date or keep yourself occupied as friends go out. Come to the event and have a good time with others."

Instead of hosting the gathering at a bar, Kassal is hoping an event center will suffice. This center will allow for more games and activities for individuals and let them mingle while having fun.

But what about those who do not want to come to Kassal's anti-Valentine's Day event? Kassal offers a few words of advice.

"If you are a woman, go buy yourself a nice piece of jewelry," says Kassal. "Or make an appointment for yourself at the spa. This day is a time to celebrate you. Pamper yourself."

While Valentine's Day has become traditionally marketed towards women, men can have fun on their own too.

"Go to a movie or a sporting event with a few friends," notes Kassal. "If you want to spend it alone, you can buy something nice for yourself too."

Men and women can also show friends and family how much they love them by sending cards and gifts. As a single person, these deeds can have an enormous impact on Valentine's Day.

"So many single people get down in the dumps on Valentine's Day if they do not have a date," explains Kassal. "It's important to let these single individuals know there are better things to do than sulk."

Of course, Kassal hopes everyone can find a Valentine. And while the event would become geared towards having fun, you never know who you might run into at the gathering.

"If someone meets another person and has a connection, then great," says Kassal. "An impromptu meeting can spark a date and make the day even better. You never know what could happen."

Kassal hopes to announce a venue and list activities planned for Valentine's Day. While he hopes many people come to the event, he does wish no matter what, single people know they are encouraged to come out.

"No person should be alone on Valentine's Day just because they don't have a date," says Kassal. "Come join us fellow single people and have a good time."

John Harris: The Man Who Breeds Success

John Harris, President, Harris Institute

by David Farrell, FYI Music News

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — If we are to measure a person by their achievements, Harris Institute's founder and president, John Harris, has to be to be one of the Canadian music industry’s most underrated success stories past or present.

His namesake, Harris Institute, ranked best private school for a 6th year in Jim Lamarche’s 2018 ‘Media Arts Education Report’. The annual index that serves as the quintessential source of information on media arts education in Canada states, “Harris Institute is the best school of its kind. Highly Recommended”.

Alumni and faculty contributed to Leonard Cohen’s Memorial Concert on CBC, Neil Young's live concert from Omemee, Shania Twain's Grey Cup half-time show, Gord Downie's Juno-winning Secret Path, The Weeknd's #1 album Starboy and Oscar-nominated 'Earned It', The Tragically Hip's final concert film and Alessia Cara's Platinum album, Know It All.

The man behind it all likes to bang the drum about his graduates and their accomplishments and has forever taken the long-road in building the faculty and the curricula over personal aggrandizement.

“The school’s results are due to a remarkable 62-member faculty that includes many award-winning leaders”, Harris says in an interview. “We set out 29 years ago to strengthen the Canadian music industry, and our graduates are now helping to achieve that objective”.

Smart 1 Marketing Announces Partnership with Global Visual Content Platform Slidely

Partnership Provides High-End, Cutting Edge Video Ad Resources to Small Businesses

Through our partnership with Slidely, we’re providing wide-stretching access and leveling the playing field for digital promotion.”

— Smart 1 Marketing CEO Todd Swickard

COLUMBUS, OHIO, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Video content has quickly surpassed all other trends in digital marketing when it comes to consumer engagement. That’s why today Smart 1 Marketing announced a unique partnership with global visual content platform Slidely, maker of Promo. This partnership will harness the power of high quality video and make it accessible and affordable to small businesses in an effort to drive their online, digital marketing efforts.

“Through our partnership with Slidely, we’re providing wide-stretching access and leveling the playing field for digital promotion. Video ads get the best results, by far, and a larger return on investment, but securing good video content for ad campaigns has traditionally given an unfair advantage to bigger companies because of the high cost until now,” Smart 1 Marketing CEO Todd Swickard said.

This partnership will allow us to create professional, high-quality, attention grabbing campaigns that draw eyes and dollars to small businesses at a price they can afford.”

Today, more than 85 percent of the U.S. audience watches online videos and more than half of the video content is viewed on mobile devices. Marketers who use video and adapt it for optimal playback on mobile grow revenue nearly 50 percent faster than non-video users. By 2019, internet video traffic will account for 80 percent of all consumer internet traffic.

Slidely is a visual content platform and creator of PROMO, the number 1 video creation solution for businesses. Through this partnership, Smart 1 clients have access to millions of premium quality video clips, pre-edited licensed music and custom messages so videos can be quickly, easily and affordably created and incorporated into campaigns that can compete with big brands’ campaigns.

“PROMO was created with business owners and marketers in mind. Professional video creation is no longer hindering successful advertising for businesses,” said Tom More, Slidely Founder and CEO. “Through strategic partners like Smart 1, we can ensure more businesses are leveraging our resources backed by a targeted strategy and digital marketing plan that helps drive their business.”

WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp.’s (OTCQB: TVTV) Rally Not Supported by Solid Fundamentals

TVTV has been on a sustained uptrend

Emerging Growth Companies

TVTV’s share price has been driven by well-timed corporate announcements and a business strategy that is convincing on paper but unsuccessful in the market.

WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (OTCQB:TVTV)

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, January 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Emerging Growth Newswire – Over the past year, WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp.’s (OTCQB: TVTV) stock has been on a sustained uptrend, reflecting positive investor sentiment linked to the Internet TV service provider’s business strategy and positive analyst recommendations.

In a research report published in May 2017 by Rob Goldman Research, TVTV was rated a speculative buy with price target of $0.50. It was trading at $0.14 at the time the research was published, but has now soared to $0.45 (at the time of writing). If this trend is anything to go by, TVTV may hit its price target in the short-term. The Goldman Research report says the $0.50 price target is conservative, reflecting their belief that there could be more potential after it hits its mark.

But is this rally based on solid fundamentals? No it is not. TVTV’s share price has instead been driven by well-timed corporate announcements and a business strategy that is convincing on paper but still unsuccessful in the market.

At its current price of $0.40 and with shares outstanding of around 68 million, TVTV has a market cap of approximately $27 million. However, in the past seven years, its revenue have been unimpressive—$6000 in 2016; $19,000 (2015).

TVTV has a price/sales ratio of 40,116. This absurdly high valuation is based on TVTV’s business strategy, which though compelling has not yet produced any meaningful revenue . TVTV is still stuck in the business idea stage, and is not a cash producing operation.

Business strategy

TVTV, which offers pre-paid, no-contract live streaming and genre-specific content via an Over-The-Top (OTT) platform, is in a high growth industry. With over 140 channels in multiple languages from the U.S. and around the world, TVTV is well positioned to ride on the popularity of OTT platforms.

OTT platforms have outpaced cable TV in popularity in the U.S., where industry leader Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) has more U.S. streaming subscribers (50.85 million) than the number of combined customers for the country’s largest cable companies (48.61 million), according to research by Leichtman Research Group. Popularity of the OTT model is also picking up in other markets outside the U.S., as evidenced by Netflix’s bold foray into markets in Asia and Africa in 2016. TVTV’s content offerings for markets outside the U.S. such as Algeria, competitively position it to capitalize on the growing global popularity of OTT platforms.

TVTV’s prepaid model allows a subscriber to pay for content that they want. This is in contrast to the post-paid contract model, which typically give subscribers the illusion of variety by bundling a limited number premium channels with dozens of generics.

The company has also taken steps to improve its offering to the Latino market.

WhereverTV Latino, its Latino division, recently launched on Google’s (NASDAQ: GOOG) Chromecast, Google’s answer to Roku (NASDAQ: ROKU) and Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) Apple TV that allows users to stream video content to their TV. This marketing alliance, which is already operational, will allow TVTV to access the Mexican market and will be offered nationwide through 200 retail stores that include Best Buy (NYSE: BBY), Coppel, Liverpool, Radio Shack & Sears (NASDAQ: SHLD).

The company’s March 2017 acquisition of 4 genre-specific music channels—Digital RodeoTV (Country Music), Digital CrossTV (Faith Based), Digital PopTV and Digital RockTV—also strengthens its competitive positioning in the market.

Weak financials

There is no doubt that TVTV is competitively positioned. . However, the Company needs to spend big money in advertising while looking for and executing endorsement deals, to unlock its potential and grow subscribers. Above the line advertising—such as billboard and high budget production commercials—is a key driver of performance in pay TV business and cinema.

The company also needs licensing deals in order to compete with other OTT providers who offer premium content at affordable rates.

In a press statement announcing a revamp of the WhereverTV website earlier this year, Edward Ciofani, TVTV’s CEO noted that the company would focus its marketing efforts towards cord-cutters and cord-nevers (industry speak for OTT TV customers) everywhere.”

It is encouraging that TVTV’s management appreciates the important role that marketing plays in unlocking growth in the subscription TV business. Revenues of $6000, as recorded in 2016, and zero revenue for the first nine months of 2017, obviously need improvement to justify the current market valuation. YouTube amateur videographers make much more than this.

Despite a compelling business model, at this time, TVTV does not have the financial muscle to execute any strategic advertising or licensing deals. The company’s financials, as published in its 10-Q report for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, paint a picture of a cash strapped company that is fighting off unpaid suppliers and progressively diluting stock through convertible debt.

The Internet TV service provider is embroiled in a standoff with a former supplier called Zigron over outstanding invoices that date as far back as 2012. Zigron, which is owed $141,798 and accrued interest of $20,629, wants to convert these invoices into common stock, a move that TVTV is fighting because it could put it into a death spiral. This issue has the potential to undermine relationships with other suppliers, a situation that could prompt TVTV’s existing and future suppliers to demand cash upfront or work on unfavorable credit terms.

The company is also taking convertible debt from insiders. Its 10-Q partly reads that: “The company has received loans from the prior CEO as well as loans from the current CEO. The prior CEO’s note bears no interest and was payable on demand and was paid in full in October 2016. The current CEO’s note bears 10% simple interest and is convertible into the Company’s common stock at $.05 per share. The balance of the notes for the periods ending September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 was $845,730 and $727,404, respectively. On March 7, 2017 the current CEO converted a portion of his notes and accrued interest into 6,150,038 shares of common stock. At September 30, 2017 the remaining notes payable and the accrued interest are convertible into 18,659,386 shares of common stock. During January 2017 the Company also secured two separate convertible lines of credit with members of its board.”

Convertible debt, specifically if a company has no other immediate source of finance, needs to be closely monitored. As noted in our previous article on Cannabis stock, Terra Tech Corp (OTCQX: TRTC), convertible debt allows lenders to convert their debt to shares at discounts of as high as 70% of the prevailing share price. In other words, convertible debt holders always make money and there is always an incentive to lend more in order to convert the debt to shares and offload them in the market at a profit. This ends up diluting common shareholders by increasing the shares outstanding. It can also be an incentive for share price manipulation as debt holders are keen to convert shares to debt when share prices are low and offload them to the public when share prices are high.

Conclusion

The issuance of convertible debt by TVTV insiders, including board members and a former CEO, leaves a lot to be desired. For a company that is making next to zero in revenue, share price dilution due to convertible debt is the last thing an investor wants. All this is headlined by a net loss of $1.05 million in 2016 and $1.2 million in the first nine months of 2017, underlining the company’s precarious financial position. TVTV has a good strategy on paper. However, until it translates this strategy into revenues, it remains a sell.
