Local DFW Business Hosts Event to Build Beds for Kids in Need

Sleep in Heavenly Peace Event at Qualbe Marketing Group

Saturday, October 27th, Qualbe Marketing Group employees and their families will gather to start building beds for children who need them in the DFW area.

We’re builders — We build up businesses and we build up people. Now we’re building beds to help the kids in our community get a better night’s sleep!”

— Randall Meinen, Founder and CEO of Qualbe Marketing Group

FORT WORTH, TX, UNITED STATES, September 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday, October 27th, a group of white collar workers will trade their keyboards and headsets in for a box of hammers and a pile of 2x4s to start building beds for impoverished children in DFW.

“We’re builders — We build up businesses and we build up people. Now we’re building beds to help the kids in our community get a better night’s sleep! When we heard there was an organization building beds for kids who don’t have them, we wanted to be apart of that,” said Randall Meinen, Founder and CEO of Qualbe Marketing Group.

On “Build Day,” Qualbe employees and their families will fill the company warehouse to build 20 bunk beds for children in need in Dallas-Fort Worth through the organization: Sleep in Heavenly Peace.

The company is raising money for the event. Each bed made will be delivered and assembled at homes in DFW, complete with mattresses, pillows and bedding.

According to Dallas News, one in five children in North Texas live in poverty, many of whom are without a bed of their own. Kids need a good night’s sleep, and a good bed provides that.

“When kids get the sleep they need, they may have a lower risk of becoming overweight and developing diabetes as well as fewer learning problems and attention issues. Sleep is as important as nutrition and exercise.” — Parents.com

Qualbe Marketing Group is a digital marketing company in Fort Worth primarily focused on selling and marketing dental discount plans under the brand 1Dental. It also provides digital marketing services to other prominent businesses in the area.

I AM CHARLIE – Now Playing at At Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica

Joe Le Mieux as Charlie Manson in I AM CHARLIE

I AM CHARLIE @ Promenade Playhouse

The World Premiere of I AM CHARLIE Now Playing in Santa Monica at Promenade Playhouse

The material is interesting and in depth. Lead actor Joe Le Mieux keenly portrays Manson in all of his deluded, unaffected psychosis.”

— GIA ON THE MOVE (Tracey Paleo)

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, USA, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — I AM CHARLIE a World Premiere play by Stephen A. Cardinal now playing at The Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica, CA explores the question: Why is the Charlie meme chiseled in granite when other 20th century memes are completely and continuously malleable? Most people will agree what was bizarre in 1969 would be old news in a few days and forgotten in a week.

I Am Charlie is NOT the play you were expecting about Charles Manson. It looks at the Charles Manson story through the mind of Charlie himself. The plot uses stage devices and audio-visual technology to immerse the audience as participants. The audience becomes part of the play. The distance between fact and fiction is reduced, mimicking the blurring of truth and fiction in contemporary news media. Because we don’t really know the complete fact and fiction of the Manson story and the effects it has had on society in the last fifty years the play leaves it up to the audience to make that judgment on their own.

Joe LeMieux stars as Charlie Manson. Joe was born and raised in Venice, California. He enrolled in the Joan Baron Conservatory for the Cinematic Arts at the age of 20, and since then has directed and acted in several music videos, television commercials, comedy shorts, and feature films. Theatre trained actors will appreciate that Joe traveled to NY for a period of years and became extraordinarily “Meisner Trained” as a Bill Esper Conservatory graduate. Joe is currently appearing on the Instagram show “The Valet Boyz” and his upcoming Feature Film, “Happy Journey” is slated for release in Sept. 2018

Stephen A. Cardinal is a film and television screenwriter and a playwright. He is a graduate of the UCLA Professional Program in Screenwriting. His screenplays have achieved awards from screenwriting competitions (Blue Cat and Scriptapalooza). He has written Television pilots that have been reviewed for production by major Hollywood studios. His work in the development of short form and long form Television "Bibles", the critical documents needed to receive serious consideration by production executives, has led to a training program to help writers create and hone these important documents. His play I am Charlie looks at the Charles Manson story through the mind of Charlie himself.

He has worked extensively with screenwriters in the critical evaluation and improvement of their work, particularly in rewriting scripts before presentation to production executives.
His extensive business training and experience, including a Masters degree in Marketing give him a unique perspective on the business side of the film industry.
Steve and Tom work as co-writers creating and developing projects for Film and Television and together they maintain a “Development” deal with a major streaming network.

Tom Waters makes his second Promenade Playhouse Directorial turn with Stephen A. Cardinal’s I Am Charlie. In 2017 Tom Directed Dean Ghaffari’s critically acclaimed Rebel With a Cause:The Sal Mineo Story. In 2016 Tom was Assistant Director to Promenade Playhouse Artistic Director Natalia Lazarus for Dennis Wilson Forevermore:A Beach Boy’s Fable.

Tom was formerly associated with the Hidden Hills Playhouse and with Neon Art Productions in Los Angeles, where he produced and co-produced several stage plays including the financially successful and critically acclaimed Working by Studs Terkel presented at the world famous Mayfair Music Hall in Santa Monica, California. The building that housed the Mayfair is located just across the alley from our backstage door!

In 2012, Tom stepped behind the camera and started El Gato Rojo Productions. EGR’s first production was the documentary The Best Thing for the Inside of a Marine is the Outside of a Horse and the pilot episodes of the TV series Paranormal Experience which Tom created, produced, directed and hosted.
Tom has a standing development “deal” with one of the major streaming networks.

With David and Peter’s coaching Tom began a successful run of stage appearances including Our Town, Working and Typist and the Tiger. Tom’s most critically acclaimed role as Danny in Night Must Fall came at the insistence of Jack Palance who convinced Tom to take on this great part. It was Jack that also encouraged Tom to write the re-make of the film version of Night Must Fall.

Promenade Playhouse Artistic Director, Natalia Lazarus is a graduate of, the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City, and the Film Program at New York University; with adjacent studies at, the University of London , the British Film Institute, the Sorbonne University in Paris, France, and the Ned Herrmann Brain Dominance Center. She is Syd Field's “docent” and one of the few in the world authorized to teach his screenwriting technique.

TV One and Boys & Girls Clubs of America to be saluted at 35th Annual Walter Kaitz Foundation Fundraising Dinner

These two organizations epitomize the Walter Kaitz Foundation’s belief that a demonstrated commitment to enhance diversity and inclusion can be achieved in ground-breaking and innovative ways.”

— Michelle Ray

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — TV One, the network designed to entertain and inform a diverse audience of adult Black viewers, and Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the national organization that has enabled young people most in need to achieve great futures as productive, caring, responsible citizens, will be honored for their commitment to diversity and inclusion at the 2018 Walter Kaitz Foundation Fundraising Dinner on October 17, in New York City.

This year's milestone 35th Anniversary Kaitz Dinner will take place on Wednesday, October 17 at New York's Marriott Marquis, under the theme "Diversity Through the Decades." Proceeds from the event will support the programs and initiatives of three key industry organizations: the Emma L. Bowen Foundation, the National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC), and Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT). Each year, while bringing together media and telecommunications leaders to advance diversity, equity and inclusion across the industry, the dinner raises more than $1 million in support of the programs and initiatives of these key groups.

TV One will be honored as the 2018 Diversity Champion, an award given to organizations that act as catalysts for diversity throughout the media and telecommunications industry. Diversity Champions motivate the industry to embrace and value diversity by serving as role models, inspiring and encouraging excellence, removing barriers that hinder progress, and empowering others with opportunities.

From the provocative original programming it produces, to the bold REPRESENT men’s health and Hurricane Harvey relief initiatives it recently launched, TV One exemplifies the values articulated by the Walter Kaitz Foundation. TV One’s commitment to these values is reflected across the entire organization, influencing not just in the on-screen content that captivates audiences, but also in the internal mechanisms that ensure diversity of thought and contribution in every aspect of their day-to-day operations.

“Opportunity is the great equalizer in business and in life,” said Michelle Rice, general manager at TV One. "Our CEO, Alfred Liggins has been a huge champion of diversity in our industry, and certainly, TV One has provided many opportunities to our employees, vendors, and partners that have made real impact on their lives, businesses and in the community. With TV One, Alfred continues to build upon the legacy of his mother, Cathy Hughes, Urban One, Inc. founder and chairperson. TV One is thrilled and incredibly humbled by this recognition and we share this honor with every employee at the company.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of America will be honored as the 2018 Diversity Advocate, an award presented to an individual or organization outside of the media and telecommunications industry that has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to diversity. The award recognizes visionary leadership that fosters a more embracing and inclusive environment. The focus of Boys & Girls Clubs of America is to ensure that young people graduate from high school with a plan for the future, that focuses on developing skills, thinking independently and cultivating self-esteem.

“Over the last 150 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of America has constantly changed to meet the needs of kids and teens in an ever-changing world. We believe where a child is from, or the circumstances surrounding them, must not limit their access to opportunities that can change their lives for the better,” said Jim Clark, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “We want to close the opportunity gap for all young people, preparing them to be innovators and leaders who shape our world. Thank you to the Walter Kaitz Foundation for recognizing our focus on diversity and commitment to inclusion.”

“These two organizations epitomize the Walter Kaitz Foundation’s belief that a demonstrated commitment to enhance diversity and inclusion can be achieved in ground-breaking and innovative ways across all organizations,” said Michelle Ray, acting executive director of the Walter Kaitz Foundation. “This 35th Anniversary milestone offers our industry a unique opportunity to reflect upon the work we’ve all done to make diversity and inclusion one of the cornerstones of our industry while we chart a course for the future.”

This year’s Annual Dinner is being spearheaded by a distinguished committee of industry visionaries led by Josh Sapan, president & CEO, AMC Networks and Dave Watson, president & CEO, Comcast Cable, and Senior EVP, Comcast Corporation.

Results Driven Marketing® LLC. Ranked in Top 50 Women-Run Businesses By The Philadelphia Business Journal

Results Driven Marketing, LLC Turning Clicks Into Clients®

Digital Marketing Agency Philadelphia

Janeene High, Results Driven Marketing Founder & CEO

The Philadelphia Business Journal has recognized Results Driven Marketing® in their Top 50 Women-Run Business List based on revenue.

Seeing other woman-owned businesses succeeding alongside my own is incredible.”

— Janeene High, RDM Founder & CEO

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

The Philadelphia Business Journal has recognized Results Driven Marketing® in their Top 50 Women-Run Business List based on revenue. The Wynnewood based company was ranked 37th on the prestigious list, climbing 5 spots since last year.

Results Driven Marketing, LLC is an award-winning digital marketing agency that began in 2013 as a startup by CEO Janeene High. Since then, the company has made steady strides forward, rapidly growing revenue toward the $2 million mark.

The 100% woman-owned and operated business recently moved from its Center City Philadelphia office location to a suburb right outside of the city, Wynnewood, PA. The move has prompted the business to open its doors to new clientele in the surrounding suburbs, while still intaking and serving clients in Center City.

The Results Driven Marketing, LLC team is currently made up of ten employees. The company is female dominant, with more than half the employees being women. High is an advocate and inspiration to women looking for equality in the workplace and an opportunity to succeed.

“It is such an honor to be recognized as one of the largest woman-owned businesses in the Philadelphia region,” High said. “I started the company from the ground up, and can’t even begin to describe how grateful I am for its success!”

Prior to founding RDM, High was a Senior Internet Marketing Consultant for a national digital agency. She excelled while with the company for over seven years was in the top five percent of the IMC’s across the country. Her ambition and drive set her apart from coworkers, which proves the success of her own business as no surprise.

High was concerned that the company was too focused on obtaining new clients versus retaining existing clients. For six consecutive years, she was the leader in retention of clients. Management was pressing her to sell more, but High had developed a winning formula for retention and acquisition.

It is her driving philosophy that she would rather keep existing clients happy than to be concerned with constant intake and replacement of clients. Maintaining a loyal client base rather than finding new clients is of utmost importance to High.

The RDM clientele base varies in industry types. They work with every industry from large law firms, healthcare service providers, high-end restaurants, and various small to medium businesses in between. They have been broadening the spectrum of clientele in order to reach new industries with their digital marketing services.

The team at RDM is honored to have their hard work and growth recognized by The Philadelphia Business Journal. They plan to continue to grow and climb the list amongst the other successful woman-owned businesses in the Philadelphia region.

“Seeing other woman-owned businesses succeeding alongside my own is incredible,” High said smiling. “I can only hope other women will see these successes and use it as motivation to follow their dreams and never be discouraged to aim high.”

Silicon Valley investors connect with their African counterparts at DEMO Africa 2018 in Morocco

Leading Venture capitalists will be in Casablanca for the 7th edition of the annual startup showcase that launches a new generation of African startups

Attending events like these helps me learn and takes me well outside of my comfort zone. Hearing from early stage founders is something I always benefit from. Global perspectives are important”

— Claire Lee

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — All roads lead to Casablanca in October for the 2018 edition of DEMO Africa. Over two days of exciting programming including pitches from the 30 selected finalists, and pre-show activities around the Angel Investor Summit, Casablanca is offering an October to remember especially as some of the leading Venture Capitalists from Silicon Valley and around the world join their African counterparts to explore investment opportunities,broaden their knowledge of African startup ecosystems and share best practices on global venture creation. 

Supported by our lead sponsors Microsoft 4 Afrika and Accenture, amongst others, the 2018 edition of DEMO Africa will also include the Ecosystem Enabler Series - a combination of keynotes, panels and fireside chats that will yield productive dialogue between industry leaders and innovation actors about the future of the African technology ecosystem; the Investor Round-tables and Angel Investor Summit- a convening of a niche group of angel investors from all across Africa and the global venture capital community; the Alpha Pitches (in partnership with Le Wagon, Casablanca)and the Lions@frica Innovation Awards – where five (5) Startups will be chosen as winners of the DEMO Africa and will proceed to Silicon Valley, California for the Lions Innovation Tour. 

This year's edition of DEMO Africa in Morocco will welcome a stellar cast of Silicon Valley investors that have an unyielding passion for the African technology ecosystem, but more importantly, are banking on the growth and ingenuity of African entrepreneurs to start and scale global ventures. A number of these investors have had a remarkable track record of supporting the growth of startups in the Valley and in Africa, and are eager to share their experience with their counterparts on the continent.

Claire Lee, Head of Early Stage at Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) is scheduled to deliver the opening keynote at the Studio Des Arts Vivants on day one of the DEMO showcase. Silicon Valley Bank is an industry leader in financing the growth of technology startups globally, and uniquely positioned in the innovation ecosystem, working with the best VC-backed startups, corporates and VC and PE firms. Claire joined SVB in January 2014 from Microsoft where she spent a decade building out programs and initiatives to better support early stage startups, working closely with the partners that incubate, invest in and support them. Claire has a deep experience in Europe, Middle East and Africa and a commitment to support international development through partnerships.

As a founding member of Lions@frica and DEMO Africa, and a long-time advisor to the office of Global Partnerships at the U.S. Department of State, Claire was instrumental in bringing DEMO to Africa in 2012 thanks to the leadership of Secretary Clinton – and continues to support this event six years later. In 2015, Claire traveled to Nairobi for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit with President Obama and senior members of the administration including Commerce Secretary, Penny Pritzker, and SVB played a major role in supporting the GES 2016 event at Stanford University which saw 700+ startups from 150 countries visit Silicon Valley.

Outside of running the early stage practice at SVB, Claire is an active advisor, mentor and speaker. She is a thought leader on issues such as entrepreneurship, education, inclusion and international development. She is a recognized advocate and spokesperson for advancing efforts around equality, inclusion and representation – aimed at advancing underrepresented constituents in the tech industry. “Attending events like these helps me learn so much about entrepreneurship globally – it takes me outside of the ‘bubble’ and outside my comfort zone. Hearing from early stage founders in nascent, growing markets, is something we always benefit from. Global perspectives are really important.” said Lee.

From Cross Culture Ventures - Jennifer Richards, a Senior Associate in the firm, is returning back to Morocco after visiting after her last visit in 2012 during her time in France. Jennifer, a bilingual and immensely talented venture builder, will also be working to support the female entrepreneurs within the DEMO Africa cohort and promote the bridge building efforts between Silicon Valley and Africa.

From Padovani Ventures - Riad Hartani, a bi-coastal venture capitalist of Algerian descent, will be showcasing the regional venture networks in North Africa and highlighting the fantastic opportunities in the region. With operations in Silicon Valley and Algeria, Dr. Hartani and Padovani ventures specialize in the development of Internet, Mobile and Artificial Intelligence technologies, mostly out of the Silicon Valley as a hub, building multiple leading technology startups, advising on strategic investments and rolling out innovative technologies all over the world.

From Precursor VC - Sydney Thomas, Investment Associate and Head of Operations is joining the DEMO Africa network to seek out opportunities on the continent. Precursor is an early-stage venture capital firm focused on investing in the first institutional round of investment for the most promising software and hardware companies.They are interested in companies with courageous visions and Sydney is excited for the possibilities that she will uncover through her interactions with the African ecosystem.

The list goes on.

This year’s EMMA winners will be celebrated during the 32nd Annual NAMIC Conference “Empower Leaders, Create Super Heroes” on October 16-17, 2018 at the New York Marriott Marquis.

“As communication leaders, it is important to be forward-thinking when connecting with multi-ethnic consumers,” said Shana Bellot, client service director for StrawberryFrog, EMMA judge and NAMIC Multicultural Marketing Committee member. “NAMIC’s EMMAs recognize those in the industry who develop marketing practices acknowledging the changing demographics driving our nation today. This year’s winning campaigns underscore how targeted, diverse communication results in genuine consumer connections.”

Recognizing the media and entertainment industry’s commitment to implementing best practices, the Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards highlight creative, strategic and innovative multicultural marketing approaches. The NAMIC Multicultural Marketing Committee, a consortium of industry experts, provides guidance for the EMMA competition, which has two award categories: Integrated Marketing Campaigns and Marketing Tactics. Entries in each category were judged within four divisions: Media Content Creators and Distributors, Networks and Communications Suppliers, Brands and All Other Media.

A judging panel of independent industry experts evaluated entries, which were up 28% YOY, and selected winners based on an assessment of strategy, implementation and results. Deviating from the traditional “best of” competition method, each entry was judged against a standard of excellence and not against other entrants, resulting in the potential for zero to multiple winners in each category.

The EMMAs is presented in partnership with Cablefax and the winners will be featured in the October 2018 edition of Cablefax: The Magazine. A complete listing of winners follows:

சிறிலங்கா விவகாரத்தில் அடுத்து என்ன ஐ.நாவில் இடம்பெற்ற உப மாநாடு !!

அனைத்துலக குற்றவியல் நீதிமன்றத்துக்கு சிறிலங்காவை பாரப்படுத்துவன் ஊடாகவே இழைக்கப்பட்ட அநீதிகளுக்கு சிறிலங்காவை பொறுப்புக்காண வைக்க முடியும்

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

சிறிலங்காவுக்கு வழங்கப்பட்ட காலஅவகாசம் முடிவடையவுள்ள நிலையில் அனைத்துலகத்தின் அடுத்த நிலைப்பாடு என்பதனை கேள்விக்குட்படுத்தும் வகையில் உப மாநாடு ஐ.நா மனித உரிமைச்சபையில் இடம்பெற்றது.

நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம், அனைத்துலக ஈழத்தமிழர் அவை ஆகியன பசுமைத்தாயகம் ஊடாக ஒருங்கு செய்திருந்தன.

ஆங்கிலம் பிரென்சு மொழியில் இடம்பெற்றிருந்த இம்மாநாட்டில் பிரான்சு-தமிழ் இளையோர் அமைப்பினால் உருவாக்கப்பட்ட காணொளி விபரணம் ஒன்று திரையிடப்பட்டிருந்தது.

Mr Lorenzo Fiorito அவர்கள் மாநாட்டை தொகுத்திருக்க வள அறிஞர்களான Mrs Shivani Jegarjah, Mrs Sowjeya Joseph, Mrs Sharuka Thevakumar, Hon Minister Manivannan ஆகியோர் கருத்துரைகளை வழங்கியிருந்தனர்.

அனைத்துலக குற்றவியல் நீதிமன்றத்துக்கு சிறிலங்காவை பாரப்படுத்துவன் ஊடாகவே இழைக்கப்பட்ட அநீதிகளுக்கு சிறிலங்காவை பொறுப்புக்காண வைக்க முடியும் என்ற கருத்து அனைத்துலக நாடுகள் நோக்கி முன்வைக்கப்பட்டது.
