    David R. Gray, a veteran of the real estate industry and attorney, has announced the release of a new review concerning the services made available through BoldLeads. The review, which is now posted on Gray’s website, , focuses on thoroughly evaluating the efficacy of the BoldLeads program and takes an in-depth look at the inherent advantages and disadvantages for real estate agents who make use of the program.

    “Speaking from my own experience, I know all too well how difficult it can be to generate leads with a great deal of consistency,” said Gray, who was able to draw on years of real estate industry experience while evaluating BoldLeads. “While conducting my review of BoldLeads, I have to admit that I was thoroughly impressed with how intuitive the system is and how effective it proved to be in generating useful real estate leads.”

    According to Gray, BoldLeads, a system developed by Danny Loschiavo and Christine Loschiavo, is particularly effective in generating interest among those within a specific target market by attracting prospective buyers and sellers to the realtor’s landing page. Through the use of automated systems and software programs, BoldLeads collects the information provided by visitors and begins the process of assisting the agent in converting each lead into a listing.

    [Homeless1] Are you preparing for TEOTWAWKI? If you are, then you likely have a much different view of the assets that will be important – those that will matter most – compared to today.

    For the majority of people living in today’s modern world, in their minds the tangible things that ‘matter’ in life might include their iPhone, their social media Apps, their credit card, the new car, fashionable clothes, the McMansion, their 401K, a bigger flat-screen TV, the latest gaming platform, etc.. you get the idea… the ‘stuff’ that modern-day programming begs you to get.

    With that said, those ‘things’ may be mostly worthless during TEOTWAWKI, while other (very different?) assets will become the one’s that matter most…

    As is the case in any hypothetical situation whereby you’re making a plan or analyzing the potential factors or results, the output will depend on the input.

    In this case, TEOTWAWKI is not defined but instead is a vague generalization and concept of life after some sort of major life-altering societal collapse.

    The extent, depth and breadth is left for your interpretation and imagination.

    With that in mind, there will certainly be some commonality among the hypothetical interpretations of TEOTWAWKI and its outcome, so lets concentrate on what tangible assets might matter ‘most’ during such a time.

    If we can identify them (those that matter the ‘most’), then we can acquire them now. And while they may not seem of much value now, in tomorrow’s world they may be worth their weight in gold…

    So let’s get a list going, and later I’ll append this article to include the apparent ‘best of’…

    Ready, set, go…

    Today, VeriShow just got even better by announcing Tailored Meeting Mode. This mode allows a live agent on the phone to invite and meet with a customer to instantly engage and share on online and offline materials with them in real-time. The new solution allows to tailor the content per-product, to be displayed throughout the session.


    The solution is browser-based with no special software required, meaning you can interact with customers spontaneously with no prior contact or installation instructions. This meeting mode invitation and live session can be done via link, email invitation, SMS or by providing the customer with a session number they can enter in a dedicated field. “People are seeing that to succeed in business, and gain new clients they needed to interact, or at least provide options to provide the best customer service,” stated Yuval Moed, co-founder and CEO of HBR Labs, VeriShow's parent company.


    VeriShow is a real-time personal engagement platform. It enables you to provide an in-person customer experience online. You can speak to your customers using video chat, co-browse the site [U1] and share product content with them in real-time. Once the customer joins the session, the meeting allows real-time collaboration such as: going through documentation (order form, product brochure) together; co-browse a website together (e.g. to review products, complete a purchase) and troubleshoot products.


    Moed has found the need for technology advancements in development this year, as clients in the healthcare, real estate, auto industry, insurance and financial industries have shared the need to be able to discuss, show and share specific content while talking live with patients and customers.


    “People feel more and more comfortable buying products and services online, however, when it comes to healthcare and banking it turns out to be a problem, states Moed. “Online users face trust issues, therefore, customers require a great deal of guidance in order to complete complex processes.” Applications like video chat and co-browsing help the bankers respond instantly to their customers' queries and guide them through complicated transactions online. These applications let the bankers provide customers a real-time in- store experience online.. Since customers can see and talk to the bankers directly, they start trusting them. According to, Live Chat for Banking: increase Trust With Video Chat, globally, 7 in 10 consumers and 92% of bankers are comfortable communicating using virtual technology.


    This technology can also be used by a healthcare company's agent who wants to share and discuss specific content with a patient while talking to them over the phone an agent invites the patient to join a live session.  The patient is directed to the healthcare company’s web site where the agent tells the patient to insert a specific code so they join the right live engagement session.  The session opens up and agent shares relevant content with the patient while there is tailored content that consists of constant disclaimers and relevant links displayed at all time for the patient who can at any time click on them for additional information.  That ensures a complete controlled session environment by the healthcare company especially as they want to make sure that the patient can always have access to information such as legal disclaimers and a tailored user experience.


    Growth is on the minds of all businesses and this week VeriShow’s Tailored Meeting Mode will elevate the face to face contact when engaging with clients and customers to deliver more efficient customer service that can contribute to higher sales and shorter support processes.

    A new website called Knock Knee Correction Made Simple has just been launched to help people suffering from knock knees. The goal of this site is to not only help those suffering from knock knees, but to also help those suffering from bow legs at an older age.

    What most people don't know about knock knees and bow legs is that these leg deformities are only normal among children that are under 8 years old. People older than this age with knock knees or bow legs may be suffering from a more serious underlying condition.

    That's what this site wants to bring more attention to as they continue to grow the site. The owner of this website really takes the information provided on it seriously, as he was once 25 years old with knock knees and didn't want to get surgery done.

    "I was very frustrated and depressed due to the fact that I was knock kneed and in my mid twenties. This condition is only supposed to affect small children and then they're supposed to grow out of it later on in life. This was not the case for me because I continued to be knock kneed and my deformity seemed to be getting worse instead of better. I finally decided to do something about it, but all the doctors I talked to wanted to me to undergo a surgical procedure to correct the problem. However, I knew there had to be a way to correct my knock knees without surgery. So my search began and in this search I found a number of different alternatives that I practiced daily to help correct my knee problem. I now can run, walk, and bend over like every other normal person. It feels good to have corrected my deformity and I want to help others do the same, which is why the site was created. We launched it in the beginning of March and we hope to grow it into something that can really help those suffering from knock knees like I was", concluded Harold.

    The passion that the owner of Knock Knee Correction Made Simple has for providing solid information for sufferers is refreshing to say the least. He also plans on adding more videos and infographics on the site to help give more of a visual on how to correct this problem.

    He also plans on adding an email sign up on the site so that visitors can interact with him and his team more. He wants to be able to give first hand help to adults with genu valgum.

    The home remedies provided on the site are guaranteed to help people with knock knees correct and realign their legs. The most rewarding thing for the owners of this website is the fact that people send in pictures and testimonials on how well the remedies are working for them.

    "There is no doubt that the pictures being sent in via email are motivating for us to help more sufferers of this condition straighten their legs. We plan on being more interactive with our users and sending out emails that help them even more. We're excited about the launch of the site and we hope that we help many people fix their bow legs and correct their knock knees", stated Harold.

    Harold even has an about page describing his incredible story of being knock kneed and fixing the problem. He strongly believes that the same methods that have helped him realign his legs will also help those suffering from bow legs. The key is to treat the underlying cause of the leg deformity to correct it.

    The Latin American orthodontic supplies market is poised to reach USD 320.2 million by 2020 at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Although mature markets (such as the Brazil and Mexico) hold larger shares in the orthodontic supplies market, Chile is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. Factors such as the growing number of patients with malocclusions, decreasing trade barrier for medical devices in some Latin American countries, and rising disposable incomes in Brazil, Mexico, and Chile are propelling the growth of the Latin American orthodontic supplies market. On the other hand, the risks and complications during or post-orthodontic treatments and limited reimbursement coverage for orthodontic treatments are restraining the growth of this market.

    In this report, the market has been segmented on the basis of product (removable braces, orthodontic adhesives & fixed braces) and countries. The fixed braces market holds the largest market share in 2015, owing to the better affordability of fixed braces over removable braces, high prevalence of patients with malocclusions and jaw disease, and increased adoption of fixed braces among adolescents. However, the removable braces market is estimated to grow at a high CAGR of 6.4% from 2015 to 2020.

However, its complicated tax and product approval systems, high cost of orthodontic treatment, and ongoing economic recession are hampering Brazil’s market growth. Chile is poised to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.3% in the market due to the healthcare and trade-related initiatives taken by the Chilean government to raise awareness and better economic landscape in Chile as compared to other countries.

    The Latin American Orthodontic Supplies market is highly competitive, with a large number of domestic and international players.

    [janome-mini] Learning how to quilt by hand is a very valuable skill among people who homestead or live in rural areas. Not only will your newly hand sewn quilt keep you warm but it will also give you a fun, time-consuming project to work on.

    Some homesteaders who enjoy sewing will sell or trade their quilts for a little extra income or other supplies.

    If you haven’t ever touched a needle and thread, it will help if you practice a few basic stitches and knots.

    The great thing about sewing is if you make a mistake, you can easily correct it.

    Today, we will be giving you a step by step guide on how to quilt a queen size quilt by hand.

    Supplies You’ll Need for Your Queen Size Quilt

    [01] Size 10 Quilting Needle

    Fingertip Thimble

    Cotton Thread

    Quilting Scissors

    Painters Tape (optional)

    Mechanical Fabric Pencil (vanishing ink or chalk markers will work too)

    Quilters hoop or Quilting Frame


    Batting – Queen Size (90” x 108” or 10 square yards)

    Backing – 90” x 108”

    Double Fold Bias Tape (optional but you’ll still need fabric to bind the quilt) 33 feet or 11 yards

    Bias Tape Maker

    Below are the dimensions we will be using for a queen size quilt bedspread:

    Mattress Size: 60″ x 80″

    Columns: 7

    Rows: 9

    Squares: 566

    Quilt Size: 90″ x 108″

    [13967333985_843b9a331d_c] Cutting the squares will be one of the most time consuming parts of making a quilt.

    It is important to cut each square 4 ¼” x 4 ¼”. When purchasing fabric, you will notice that they will use the term yard.

    This means it will be 36” x 36”. Usually a quilter can get 81 squares out of a yard if you use the selvages (end of the fabric). If you are doing two different colors, it’ll be roughly 5 yards each.

    However many colors or patterns you decide to use, divide it ultimately by how big your quilt will be. In the case of a queen, it will be 10 yards.

    Important Quilting Definitions

    [images] Backing: the fabric forming the back of a quilt

    Batting: the “fluff” or “loft” between the quilt and backing that adds insulation and warmth. You can choose between cotton, polyester or wool.

    Bias Tape: strips of fabric used to bind the edges of the quilt.

    You can purchase already made bias tape online or you can make your own with extra backing fabric.

    Blocks: a basic unit of quilt construction; usually in the form of a square of pieced fabric.

    In this case, it is 3 x 3 fabric squares. Each square is cut at 4 ¼” X 4 ¼” (4”x4” when sewn).

    Loft: Picking the right “fluff” is very important. When shopping for batting, you can buy it already sized for cribs, twin, full, queen and king size quilts.

    You can also buy it at a custom size. “Low Loft Batting” is great for flatter quilts while “High Loft Batting” is preferred for heavier, fluffier quilts.

    Seam: a line along which two pieces of fabric are sewn together in a garment or other article.

    Step by Step Guide on How to Make Your Queen Size Quilt:

    [sewing-table-1024x711] 1. Choose a place in your home with a big table that gives you enough space to put all of your quilting materials in one area.

    2. Choose Fabric – most quilters will recommend that you use 100% cotton as well as 2 – 8 different fabric designs.

    3. Launder and iron fabrics – before cutting out the squares, it is important to run the material through the laundry.

    This will allow the fabric to shrink before sizing your quilt.

    If it is wrinkled, make sure to iron the fabric before cutting or sewing pieces together.

    4. Measure and cut square pieces 4 ¼” x 4 ¼“ – the design we are showing you today is called a “9 Square Quilt”. Even with this simple design, you can create a beautiful quilt with different colors and patterns.

    5. Once you have cut enough squares, it is important to start laying out the squares in the formation that you want. Most quilters group them into a block (see picture above).

    Here are a few examples:

    [7d896001f60cb89469b737d3ae2b09cc] 2 contrasting solids

    1 Solid 1 Pattern block

    1 pattern and 1 solid that matches one of the colors in the pattern

    Two distinct pattern (dots & stripes, two dots of different colors, etc.)

    6. First, take your thread and measure around 48”.

    You’ll want to make a quilters knot before doing your first stitch.

    Basic Quilter’s Knot

    [quiltersknot2] With your needle threaded, hold the thread tail over the needle, extending it about ½” above.

    Holding the thread tail against the needle, with one hand, use your other hand to wrap the thread around the needle clockwise two or three times.

    Pinching the thread tail and wraps with your thumb and forefinger, grasp the needle near the point and gently pull it through the thread wraps.

    Continue pinching the thread wraps until the thread is pulled completely through and forms a small, firm knot near the end of the thread tail.

    7. Next, begin by hand sewing (using a running stitch) the squares into three rows, starting with the top row.

    It is important to leave a ¼ inch seam allowance.

    If it is easier for you to remember, use a pin to mark how far you should sew with each square. After you sew the three rows, make sure to sew them together.

    Make sure to use a quilters knot after you are finished with the block. Make a separate pile for completed blocks.

    8. With an iron, flatten each blocks seam. This will make it easier in the future for you to sew adjoining pieces together.

    The easiest stitch to do is called a running stitch. This helps keep the fabric aligned.

    Running Stitch

    [???????????????????????????????] The needle should be inserted through the front of the fabric, catching small amounts of the back of the fabric, being reinserted through all layers again and again in a steady pattern. Make sure to use a thimble.

    9. Once you have hand sewn all of the quilt blocks, iron over them again to make sure they are flat.

    10. When sewing each column, it is easier to start from the top and work your way down to the bottom.

    11. Start by laying column 1 right side up. Lay column 2 on top of it, right side down.

    Line everything up as best as you can before pinning.

    12. Once you are finished sewing the columns together, make sure to iron your fabric, seams and backing.

    13. Next, lay down the backing, batting and quilted blocks facing upwards. Smooth everything out as much as you can.

    14. This next step is very important – make sure to pin all 3 layers of material within 3 – 6 inches of each other.

    [02] You’ll notice that most quilters pin in the middle of squares. This will prevent bumps from showing up later on.

    15. Most hand quilters find it very helpful to use a quilter’s hoop or quilting frame when starting this part.

    It will keep the fabric tight while sewing each square. To save time, it is easier to sew in horizontal and vertical lines across the quilt instead of around each box. After you have finished hand stitching every block, cut off any excess threads and batting.

    16. Next, we will need to bind the outside of the quilt together.

    The most cost effective way to do this is to use fabric from the backing.

    If you would like to save some time, purchase double fold bias tape.

    The easiest way to make your own binding is to cut 4 – 3 ¾ wide inch strips.

    [DIY Scarf Marking] Remember, you’ll need 33 feet or 11 yards of binding tape to go around the entire quilt.

    Make sure to cut the edges and to make them straight.

    17. Take two strips; lay one horizontal, then lay the other one on top vertically as seen in the picture above.

    18. Where the two strips cross over, pin and sew tightly together on the diagonal line.

    Make sure to cut the excess material off and iron the seam.

    Repeat this step with the other two strips.

    19. Now, take your bias tape maker and feed your long strip of fabric wrong side up (that way you can see the bottom the seams) and push it through the slot in the middle.

    [Bias Blog 17] It is important that the seams feed through as flat as possible. Iron over all of the creases made by the bias tape maker.

    20. Face your quilt towards the floor, with your long strip of binding tape, pin to all 3 layers as shown in the picture.

    We recommend pinning every 6 inches. Around the corners, it is important to fold bias tape so that the raw edge is not on the outside.

    21. At the corner, extend the bias tape over the opposite edge.

    Then, fold it back so that it forms a triangle and goes to the left the original pinned strip.

    Now, fold the strip back over the triangle so that the folded edge lines up with the raw edge and the strip can now continue down the shorter side of the quilt! (If you’ve done this correctly, you’ll have a little triangle fold as shown in the last photo.

    22. Next, sew the back side of the quilt leaving ¼ inch allowance. Take out the pins as you stitch past them.

    23. Fold over the remaining bias tape to the front and pin the quilt like you did with the back.

    24. Last step! Just like the backside, leave a ¼ inch seam allowance while hand sewing the top of your quilt!

    Iyanni Pradia to Lead Nationwide Initiative to Mobilize Youth and Drive Awareness of Bullying Prevention and Response Strategies
    HOUSTON, Texas – On April 30, Iyanni Pradia, a 12-year old actress, will lead a Million Kid March aimed at uniting the voices of one million kids through staged marches in cities across the nation. The event, which was inspired by the historic March on Washington led by civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will start at Roux 38 on Ennis Street in Houston at 4:00 p.m.
    Pradia has launched a GoFundMe campaign to secure the support of sponsors and partners to help increase the reach of the initiative. Additionally, the young activist has established a hotline for victims of bullying to call (866-930-1444) and report acts of unwanted, aggressive behavior in schools, online and in other settings where school-aged children may be vulnerable to aggression, threats or attacks. Her ultimate goal is to help lobby for a bullying hotline that will be available to schools across the U.S., and effective legislation against bullying in all 50 states.
    “I have so much sympathy for people that are bullied because I experienced it first hand,” said Pradia. “I really want to get to the core of why bully’s bully. I’m lending my support and doing what I can to seek answers and bring about solutions.”
    Supporters can join the Million Kid March movement by hosting a march in their city, participating in a virtual march by posting the initiative’s logo on their Facebook page, or by contacting coordinators to make a contribution at
    Often in the spotlight, Pradia has been featured in national print ads, magazines and films and even hosted her own radio show. In 2014, she became one of the youngest media members to ever be credentialed by HARPO media when she was invited to cover Oprah Winfrey’s “The Life You Want Weekend.” That same year, she launched her own fashion line, further adding to her lengthening resume of creative endeavors.
    Throughout her career, Pradia has used her platform as an actress, artist and entertainer to champion youth. She’s previously hosted an anti-bullying winter lights fashion show and participated in mentoring events and toy drives.
