BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Global Charity Initiative Black Tie Event and Benefit in Beverly Hills held on October 27th, for the purpose of eradication of poverty on a global scale was a success. The Global Charity Initiative gave out over 100 free VIP Tickets and was supported by Celebrities, Sports Figures, Business Leaders and Corporations. Attending and supporting the event was the Crown Prince HRH Crown Prince Dani Chamoun Beddawi of the Kingdom of Assyria as well as the HRH Princess Temashayina Sibahle Dlamini and HRH Princess Sentelweyinkhosi Diamini from the Kingdom of Eswatini along with superstar Chadwick Boseman and many others. Sponsors for the event included HBO, MBS Center, His Presence Fire, Pebblekick, Wellness Beverages 4 kids and the Breakthrough Thinking Book.

According to the founder of the Global Charity Initiative and the creator of the event Dr. Gershom Sikaala “ My passion is to touch and change the lives of millions around the globe and eradicate poverty.” However I realize that charity begins at home and that we need to start in our own backyard.
The Global Charity Initiative will use proceeds from the event to feed homeless families in shelters in Los Angeles as well as participating with one of the local missions to feed the homeless on Thanksgiving. As we gain support and are able to expand our efforts on a larger scale our goals are to accomplish the following:

The Global Charity Initiative wants to be part of the eradication of poverty by implementing the following solutions:
. Introducing new technologies that can sustain mankind.
• Improving infrastructures that will eradicate poverty.
• Work with key people in communities, states, and countries, with the goal of building a network of decision-makers.
• Building an ecosystem of change.
• This will be done by using books including “Break Through Thinking” and many more mindset centered texts to change their perceptions.
• Connecting businesses to businesses for profit will not only stimulate positive relationships between entrepreneurs, but also ensure funding for the non-profit, as certain percentages will go directly towards our charity.
• Connecting the arts and entertainment industry with our charity to foster interest and speedy proliferation of our initiative.
• Working closely with some of the greatest minds and financial moguls to share and pass on their knowledge to the world.

Global Charity Initiatives vision is provide capital to people who need it most by implementing the following strategy:
• Rather than giving out handouts, we will focus on changing the mentality of the poor by lifting them out of poverty consciousness.
• Poverty mindset is an illness that needs to be cured by providing the right information; we will spread this information.
• Every person on the planet deserves an opportunity to change their lives.
• We will be there for them and encourage them to improve themselves.
• We will train the nationals and locals in areas of need, by helping them see the already existing resources in their country or community. The purpose of this is to empower them to end the struggle.
• We will not be taking away from other charity organizations; rather, we will inspire them to work together.
• This is how we will bring people together and form lasting relationships of success and empowerment.
• We will help them with our tools and connections, especially successful mentors, people who have succeeded from nothing.
• We will encourage the spirit of self-dependency, rather than the act of depending on someone else. This is to successfully eradicate the “victim” mindset.
• However, we will encourage partnerships of empowerment, not self-reliances.

The Global Charity Initiative Black Tie Event and Benefit was the first of many events that will take place around the world and was to create an awareness of the organization as well as it’s vision for the eradication of poverty on a global scale by empowering people to take charge of their lives, primarily by achieving a shift in mindset.

The event was produced by the Founder of Global Charity Initiative Dr.Gershom Sikaala is a businessman, humanitarian, author, speaker, television host, media personality, and global peace ambassador. He was born in Zambia and studied Business Administration at the University of Cambridge.

We set out as a start-up consulting firm from the USD MBA program assisting businesses with business plans, pitch decks and growth strategies. We quickly realized that many of our clients were in desperate need of marketing and SEO services in various highly competitive industries and markets.

From there, we developed a strategy to help the SMB community grow by developing a hands-on management approach to marketing and sales channel development in the Southern California region. We found that while many clients understood SEO and digital marketing, they did not have the tools or capabilities to derive any ROI or marketing assets from their marketing efforts. Acquiring quality tangible marketing assets require SEO industry expertise and a team dedicated to community outreach, research, and content output.

SunCity Advising is excited to remain very active with the University of San Diego community through guest lectures, student organizations and the hiring of top business students in marketing and finance.

GfK will nurture auto tech innovation in hackathon competition for undergraduates

Student teams will combine marketing, data science as they vie for $5,000 prize

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to GfK AutoMobility, more than half of those who intend to buy a new car say that in-vehicle technology could affect their selection. To give aspiring data scientists and marketer researchers hands-on experience with this fast-growing category, GfK is challenging undergraduate teams to create business plans – from design to marketing – for their own “smart car” innovations.

In the second NextGen Data Science Hackathon Competition, GfK will award a $5,000 grand prize to the team that develops and presents the most convincing plan for a new in-car device or service.

Watch a video about the NextGen Data Science Hackathon Competition

During a 10-day hackathon in March, GfK will give students access to data sets from a variety of sources, encouraging the teams to use these and other insights in creating 5-minute presentations for their ideas. GfK insights experts, as well as marketers and researchers from client companies, will act as mentors and, ultimately, select the winning team.

Interested students should contact marketing@gfk.com

Before the hackathon, students — working individually or in groups – can collect insights to focus their projects and provide background for their final presentations. Undergraduate students in any major can take part in the event, working from any location.

“Smart technology has revolutionized the auto marketplace – from in-car entertainment systems to self-driving vehicles – and we know there is much more to come,” said Tom Neri, Commercial Director at GfK North America and leader of its AutoMobility research team. “The potential for breakthrough innovation is still huge, and we know that the NextGen teams will bring a powerful curiosity and creativity to this category. We also see this as a valuable opportunity to connect today’s product designers and marketers with the next wave of innovative thinkers.”

The NextGen Competition began in 2011 with a focus on traditional research methods and goals. Over the years, the contest has evolved to reflect the changing toolkit and role of market researchers and data scientists. In 2018, GfK made a hackathon the centerpiece of the competition, with a team from the College of Staten Island (City University of New York) taking first place for its innovative development and marketing plan for a new smart speaker.

Witness the Horrors of Marijuana Legalization in Award-Winning Documentary Screening

A series of interviews with community activists, officials and doctors in Colorado reveals a plethora of broken promises to voters so as to legalize marijuana.

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Thursday, November 6, at 7pm, the Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW) Florida chapter will hold another screening in their center on N. Fort Harrison Avenue of the groundbreaking and award-winning documentary that the marijuana industry doesn’t want you to see: Marijuana X.

Taking place in the state of Colorado, through a series of interviews with local community activists, officials, doctors, neighbors and even homeless, independent filmmaker, Michael DeLeon reveals a plethora of broken promises made to Colorado voters in order to legalize marijuana. The promises broken were so severe that DeLeon had to remake the documentary twice after the marijuana industry bribed the people he interviewed to not speak out against marijuana in an attempt to suppress the truth.

“While the debate on legalization in Florida presses on, legal does not equal safe,” says Julieta Santagostino, president of the FDFW Florida chapter. “Marijuana has 400 chemicals in it. Some being the same ones found in cigarettes that cause cancer. And cigarettes are legal but there is no debate about the fact that smoking is a health risk.”

As part of their educational and preventative mission, FDFW has put together booklets containing factual information on the most commonly abused drugs, and in this case, marijuana. Anyone can order free copies of these booklets or read them online at www.drugfreeworld.org.

For more information on the event or to RSVP, please call 727-467-6962 or email info.fl@drugfreeworld.org.

Chaim Steinberger Speaks at the ABA Family Law Section 2019 Fall Conference in Austin, TX: Divorce Without Destruction

New York Attorney Chaim Steinberger

New York Attorney Chaim Steinberger

New York attorney Chaim Steinberger recently spoke at the American Bar Association Family Law Section 2019 Fall Conference in Austin, TX.

People don’t fight because they’re nasty and vicious. People fight because they’re hurt, angry, and most importantly, afraid.”

— Attorney Chaim Steinberger

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attorney Chaim Steinberger of the New York-based law firm Chaim Steinberger, P.C. recently spoke at the American Bar Association Family Law Section 2019 Fall Conference in Austin, TX. His presentation can be seen here.

Attorney Steinberger’s message discussed the basic psychological imperatives that often drive good people to fight unnecessarily during a divorce. He said:

“People don’t fight because they’re nasty and vicious. People fight because they’re hurt, angry, and most importantly, afraid. When people are scared, their autonomic nervous system (the amygdala and related circuitry–the body’s survival mechanism), takes over, and focuses them intensely on the perceived threat, ignoring all else. That means they get ‘tunnel vision,’ sometimes focusing on issues that seem important instead of the ones that are, and unable to see the real-world solutions that might be right in front of them. That's why it's so much easier for us to advise others and why, when we’re faced with the same situation, we forget to take our own advice.”

Mr. Steinberger outlined what lawyers can do for their clients so that the clients' transition out of ‘survival mode,’ feel safe, and become capable of exploring and considering suitable settlement options for their immediate and long-term benefit, both for themselves and their loved ones.

About Divorce Attorney Chaim Steinberger

After graduating at the top of his class, clerking for a federal judge, and working at some of the most prestigious law firms in the country, Attorney Steinberger dedicated his life to practicing matrimonial, divorce, and family law with dignity and integrity, helping his clients achieve better outcomes through the use of advanced mediation and negotiation techniques and applying game theory and military strategy to family problems. He now uses those skills to help his clients obtain the outcomes they want with a minimum of pain, angst, and expense.

Attorney Steinberger has been characterized a thought-leader and is well-respected by his colleagues on the bench and bar. The New York Law Journal published his article “Divorce Without Destruction,” and the American Bar Association his article “Make More Money by Being More Ethical.” He currently chairs the Custody Committee of the American Bar Association Family Law Section and serves on the Executive Committee of the New York State Bar Association Family Law Section among other bar leadership positions.

CCHR Gets Hunderds to Sign Electroshock Ban at Clearwater Jazz Holiday

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — To raise greater public awareness of the harmful and deadly effects of electroconvulsive “therapy”, volunteers and staff of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) Florida chapter amassed over 200 signatures on the first day of the Clearwater Jazz Holiday for a petition to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Acting Commissioner to ban it. The petition, started by CCHR International, has reached over 98,000 signatures, fast approaching its target of 150,000.

Since ECT was developed it has never been required by the FDA to take a single clinical trial to confirm its ‘safety’ and ‘efficacy.’ The result: The death toll of those who have received ECT is 50 times greater than the homicide rate of the United States.

Julie Greene, who received electroconvulsive therapy in 1996, shared her story on the negative effects ECT had on her life on a new blog by CCHR International, TruthAboutECT.org: “ECT had caused the mysterious ‘illness’ that had suddenly befallen me in 1996, when I was 39 years old. I had gone so far as to give the ‘illness’ a name, ‘The Thing,’ because I felt that by doing so the psychiatrists might finally listen, but even that didn’t work.”

Her repeated pleas for answers about her brain were brushed off by McLean Hospital staff by being “told I was ‘attention-seeking,’” said Greene. “They claimed [it was] symptoms of a personality disorder. My complaints of confusion were called ‘dissociation’ which were yet one more ‘symptom.’”

Greene clearly remembers the words of McLean Hospital’s famous psychiatrist, John Gunderson, who told her, “You aren’t even capable of sitting in a room full of people!” This intrigued her because “McLean’s guru, claimed after their ‘cure’ called ECT that I couldn’t sit in a room full of people.” Despite the fact she was a music major and a straight A student.

In order to escape captivity in a state hospital, Greene fled the U.S. in May 2014 for Uruguay. Recently returning, she now participates in anti-psychiatry activism. Since her escape, “I have won several public speaking awards and I do not have ‘stage fright,’” as Gunderson claimed.

“Stories just like Julie’s, or worse, can be found across the Tampa Bay area and the rest of Florida,” said Samuel Guillard, executive director of the CCHR Florida chapter. “We need to make her tragic story one of the last and ban ECT.”

About CCHR:

Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’” For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org
