    London, UK (August 15, 2016) - Imagine the scene: You’re in a far-off country. You distrust your host. The musicians you crossed an ocean to work with have gone touring without you and the man who photographs you for a living isn’t paying you. You’re running out of money and people you can trust, then to make things worse, your only friend - a 15 year old girl - has gone missing. A sense of ancient witchcraft hangs in the air, and if you don’t take action to protect what you hold dear, no-one else will.

    This is not a Victorian tale of Britons travelling to sinister unknown lands, Bram Stoker-style. This is ‘Dark Journey’, the very modern tale of Kelly - a beautiful American girl, played by the super-hot Tiffany Mulheron (Rock’n’Rolla, Lesbian Vampire Killers) - and her stand against sorcery in contemporary London.

    “Kelly’s a fish out of water,” explains C.L. Murray, who produced the film independently. “On the outside she should have it all: the looks to be a model, the talent to be a pop star and an exciting new adventure touring with a band in Britain. But everyone’s an underdog when they’re up against what they don’t understand.”

    Not that Kelly stays alone forever in her quest to uncover what happened to her missing teenage friend. In the face of dark forces, she changes from a naïve small-town American girl to a dark-haired, emotionally-resilient vamp and makes two friends who are equally determined to find out what happened to the hapless 15 year old. Played by gorgeous Giselle Bowyer (Gossip Girl).

    Kelly’s journey from loneliness to friendship in the face of adversity is typical, Murray says, of many people’s arrival into London. “Our capital can seem a cold, unwelcoming place at first. It’s easy to think you’ll never fit in. But hang in there long enough, grow the strength to tolerate the overcrowding, the noise, the gangs and the cliques, and you’ll soon meet good people trying to do good things. Just like you.”

    Teenage horror films have been a staple of cinema since the 1970s, and the success of Blair Witch in 1999 inspired a generation of up-and-coming filmmakers to embrace digital technology and show what they could do. But don’t expect any shaky camerawork or grainy images this time around. Instead, the filmmakers have gone for a well-polished production that sounds as good as it looks, with aural delights provided by the award-winning team behind Casino Royalé.

    “This was a huge learning experience for myself and for director James Walker. Working within the financial constraints of independent film forces you to find ways to do things that would never have crossed your mind if you were blessed with Hollywood-sized budgets. The cast have also more than played their part in bringing it to life; Tiffany Mulheron sets every scene alight as Kelly, and Melissa Leigh is a perfect femme fatale. She’s every teen boy’s guilty pleasure: the face of a saint with the smile of a killer.”

    Dark Journey is available on Amazon and from film platforms. For more information, visit the film’s website on www.darkjourneythemovie.com and join the ‘Dark Journey’ Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dark-Journey/191946031744?ref=ts

Martin’s greatest passion in life is to help you create a book of memories you can look back on for years to come. Keeping the memories of your wedding day vibrantly alive with charming photography will ignite the spark of love between you and the love of your life every time you see them.

    Martin recently won two prestigious Fearless Awards and recently accepted to The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP), Martin Dabek has been capturing incredible memories for couples since 2009. While thus far it's been an amazing journey, Martin is always ready to start his next journey with a new couple and to hear all about your wedding plans!

    The very first wedding he photographed was in Mexico for some personal friends. Since then, he has photographed over 200 weddings. While Winter weddings are among his favourites, Martin has travelled extensively and is no stranger to destination weddings and the epic photography that goes along with it all. If you’re looking for a professional photographer with experience who will bring passion to tell your wedding story, Martin Dabek is the photographer for you.

    Your wedding has so much meaning and emotion wrapped up with the special details and plans that you are making to bring your special day to life. Everything from the cascading bridal veil to the personalized details on the wedding shoes was chosen with care and for a reason. Capturing those details with elegant wedding day photography should be done with care and a genuine connection to you as a couple. Martin’s passion for wedding photography stems from being able to stop time for just a moment in every photo, celebrating a love that lasts a lifetime.

    As a professional wedding photographer, Martin does not like to work intrusively. Rather, he likes to capture the subtle moments like the unassuming smiles, the holding of hands in a quiet moment, or the laugh of a relative as the best man gives his toast. He works with natural light, in lieu of florescent bulbs that can discolour the skin - and he endeavours to leave you with creative, timeless photographs to cherish for a lifetime. In my hands, your images will be more than just pictures. They’ll be real art, bursting with love, light and fun.

    According to Martin himself, “I believe with all of my heart that your wedding pictures are the strongest memories that you will ever have of your wedding day. My skill as a wedding photographer ensures that you will be spellbound witnessing your wedding story unfold the first time you go through the pictures from your magical day. My dedication to capturing the nuances and details of the day ensure that your wedding pictures will tell a story that lasts forever; I want you to still be spellbound when you look through your pictures for the one-hundredth time. My joy is found by rejoicing in the intimate moments shared between two people joining their lives together.”

The fruit is often used for treating chronic fatigue syndromes, diabetes, hemorrhoids, gout, osteoarthritis, kidney diseases, and urinary tract infections”, the researcher claimed.

He told that the fruit contains glycosides, amino acids, vitamins and anthocyanins. “This particular fruit has great antioxidant activities. Also, it is rich with flavonoids. The extract has great antiviral and antibacterial activity as well”, he added.

The owners exclaimed that the products that they have brought to the Chinese domestic market are equally popular in the west too.

A sense of ancient witchcraft hangs in the air, and if you don’t take action to protect what you hold dear, no-one else will.

    This is not a Victorian tale of Britons travelling to sinister unknown lands, Bram Stoker-style. This is ‘Dark Journey’, the very modern tale of Kelly - a beautiful American girl, played by the super-hot Tiffany Mulheron (Rock’n’Rolla, Lesbian Vampire Killers) - and her stand against sorcery in contemporary London.

    “Kelly’s a fish out of water,” explains C.L. Murray, who produced the film independently. “On the outside she should have it all: the looks to be a model, the talent to be a pop star and an exciting new adventure touring with a band in Britain. But everyone’s an underdog when they’re up against what they don’t understand.”

In the face of dark forces, she changes from a naïve small-town American girl to a dark-haired, emotionally-resilient vamp and makes two friends who are equally determined to find out what happened to the hapless 15 year old. Played by gorgeous Giselle Bowyer (Gossip Girl).

    Kelly’s journey from loneliness to friendship in the face of adversity is typical, Murray says, of many people’s arrival into London. “Our capital can seem a cold, unwelcoming place at first. It’s easy to think you’ll never fit in. But hang in there long enough, grow the strength to tolerate the overcrowding, the noise, the gangs and the cliques, and you’ll soon meet good people trying to do good things. Just like you.”

    Teenage horror films have been a staple of cinema since the 1970s, and the success of Blair Witch in 1999 inspired a generation of up-and-coming filmmakers to embrace digital technology and show what they could do. But don’t expect any shaky camerawork or grainy images this time around.

A sense of ancient witchcraft hangs in the air, and if you don’t take action to protect what you hold dear, no-one else will.

    This is not a Victorian tale of Britons travelling to sinister unknown lands, Bram Stoker-style. This is ‘Dark Journey’, the very modern tale of Kelly - a beautiful American girl, played by the super-hot Tiffany Mulheron (Rock’n’Rolla, Lesbian Vampire Killers) - and her stand against sorcery in contemporary London.

    “Kelly’s a fish out of water,” explains C.L. Murray, who produced the film independently. “On the outside she should have it all: the looks to be a model, the talent to be a pop star and an exciting new adventure touring with a band in Britain. But everyone’s an underdog when they’re up against what they don’t understand.”

    Not that Kelly stays alone forever in her quest to uncover what happened to her missing teenage friend. In the face of dark forces, she changes from a naïve small-town American girl to a dark-haired, emotionally-resilient vamp and makes two friends who are equally determined to find out what happened to the hapless 15 year old. Played by gorgeous Giselle Bowyer (Gossip Girl).

    Kelly’s journey from loneliness to friendship in the face of adversity is typical, Murray says, of many people’s arrival into London. “Our capital can seem a cold, unwelcoming place at first. It’s easy to think you’ll never fit in. But hang in there long enough, grow the strength to tolerate the overcrowding, the noise, the gangs and the cliques, and you’ll soon meet good people trying to do good things. Just like you.”

    Teenage horror films have been a staple of cinema since the 1970s, and the success of Blair Witch in 1999 inspired a generation of up-and-coming filmmakers to embrace digital technology and show what they could do. But don’t expect any shaky camerawork or grainy images this time around. Instead, the filmmakers have gone for a well-polished production that sounds as good as it looks, with aural delights provided by the award-winning team behind Casino Royalé.

    “This was a huge learning experience for myself and for director James Walker. Working within the financial constraints of independent film forces you to find ways to do things that would never have crossed your mind if you were blessed with Hollywood-sized budgets. The cast have also more than played their part in bringing it to life; Tiffany Mulheron sets every scene alight as Kelly, and Melissa Leigh is a perfect femme fatale. She’s every teen boy’s guilty pleasure: the face of a saint with the smile of a killer.”

    The Vietnam-Based Entrepreneur and Self-Development Trainer – Also the Founder of Renowned Email Marketing Solutions Company SendMass - Has Worked With Over 14,000 Students Since 2010  

                Ho Chi Minh, Viet Nam – August 22, 2016 - After receiving his Bachelor of Meteorology degree from the University of Vietnam, Nguyen Quang Ngoc took the most logical career path and secured a position with a government organization that used his ample knowledge and skills in weather forecasting and studying air patterns.

    After working in that capacity for several years, Ngoc’s friend gave him a copy of Rich Dad Poor Dad, the classic 2000 book by American businessman, author and investor Robert Kiyosaki. Reading and taking to heart the book’s timeless concepts about achieving success via ownership of high value assets that produce cash flow set Ngoc on a course that would change his own life – and ultimately the lives and careers of thousands of his fellow Vietnamese.

    Ngoc began creating his own success story in a very organic way – by tapping into his knowledge of nature and weather patterns and applying the powerful metaphors inherent in those concepts to helping people market their businesses. Over the past five years as a self-development trainer, he has worked with 14,000 students and entrepreneurs ranging in age from 27-40. Some are like Ngoc was, seeking to get out of the daily grind of being an employee and start their own businesses, while others seek his expertise to help take their established businesses to a higher level.

    Drawing on Ngoc’s powerful coaching, one of his students launched a yoga instruction studio and now teaches a total of 10,000 students, while another has helped 40,000 parents understand new, less violent approaches to child discipline. The first essential thing that students seek from Ngoc is a change in mindset – and a realization that they have the ability to control their own destiny and become successful.

    Ngoc draws on his scientific background to explain the parallels between the natural principles behind real hurricanes and his Marketing Hurricane Model: He considers an effective marketing campaign like a hurricane which needs to go through five stages:

    --Create the ocean. In this early stage, data is collected and money is secured.

    --Heating up. The condition that forms a hurricane is the sea surface temperature, which must be higher than 26 degrees Celsius. The connection between buyer and seller must be warm enough.

    --Get to the vortex. Low pressure is created so the air moves to the center to create the vortex. Normally in marketing, people trigger this by offering something big upfront.

    --Transformation. In nature, this phase is where water vapor transforms to water drops; in marketing, this translates to selling things, delivering value, getting the money.

    --Release. In this phase, Ngoc says, “we can see people buy the product, become happy with it and begin referring friends, which keeps more people coming and buying more.” 

    Realizing that a positive mindset helped bring positive and lucrative financial and personal growth results into this life, he became a major enthusiast of the film and book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. He began sharing the book and film with many people in Vietnam via personal contacts and websites and blogs. When a publisher secured the licensing rights to do a Vietnamese translation, they called Ngoc to create it.

    While developing his training and marketing business, Ngoc also became aware of another crucial niche that had yet to be tapped into by businesses in Vietnam: email marketing solutions. He had experienced the value of this in the wake of the many large seminars he had attended. When he returned home, they kept in touch with him and provided special content with regular and sometimes even daily messages. Sensing the need for Vietnamese business owners to use these solutions to grow their companies, Ngoc launched the groundbreaking service SendMass.

    “I consider what I do on behalf of others to be enlightening work,” Ngoc says. “When people come to me, I am here to help them understand business and marketing from a deeper perspective. I get great joy knowing that I have helped them see the big picture of how my marketing techniques can help them take the initiative in their businesses and help them achieve their goals and success in life.”

    Washington, D.C., August 22, 2016: On Thursday, the UC Irvine Office of Student Conduct announced that it had concluded a three-month investigation into an aggressive and disruptive incident on the UCI campus last May.  The  incident involved an anti-Israel mob that disrupted a small event held by a Jewish student group on campus.  The angry mob of about 50 students blocked the entrances and exits while loudly chanting angry, anti-Israel, anti-police, and pro-Palestinian sentiments that promoted violence, anti-Semitism, and hate.  One Jewish student, Eliana Kopley, attempted to get away, but was chased and hounded by members of the angry mob, forcing her to hide in a kitchen while a UCI staff member protected her.  The Louis D. Brandeis Center ("LDB"), a national civil rights legal advocacy organization best known for its work fighting anti-Semitism in higher education, represents Ms. Kopley.
     
    According to last week's announcement, the student group Students for Justice in Palestine ("SJP") is responsible for violation of the UCI Code of Conduct's provision prohibiting "Obstruction or disruption of teaching, research, administration, disciplinary procedures, or other University activities."  As for sanctions, SJP was issued a written warning, effective immediately and continuing until March 29, 2017.   SJP must also host an educational program by November 18, 2016.


    LDB President and General Counsel Kenneth L. Marcus expressed his concerns about the university's announcement, stating, "I am disappointed in the outcome, which fails to hold SJP accountable for the harassment and physical intimidation of Eliana Kopley - or to even acknowledge that anything happened to her that night."  Indeed, the statement yesterday makes no reference to any student being chased, followed, or needing to hide from attendees of SJP's "protest" gone wrong. 
     
    Marcus further stated, "I do believe that it is a step forward for UC Irvine to finally acknowledge that SJP's disruptive behavior violates university polices.  We are pleased that the university has implicitly rejected the spurious claims by the National Lawyers' Guild and Palestine Legal that such disruptive behavior is protected by the First Amendment, when it clearly is a violation of the freedom of speech.  We are also glad that the Office of Student Affairs has - at a minimum - issued SJP a warning, and we hope that administrators will closely monitor SJP's activities over the coming year and respond quickly to any further crimes, infractions or violations that they commit."
     
    However, Marcus described the weak sanctions as "a slap on the wrist for SJP, and a slap in the face to the Jewish community."  Ms. Kopley agreed, stating, "I feel like their punishment is not enough to keep the pro-Israel and Jewish students on campus safe.  It isn't guaranteeing our safety.  What happened that night does not warrant just a 'warning'.  There should be a real, visible action by the school to ensure safety to all students on our campus."
     
     Jennie Gross, Senior Staff Attorney at LDB, considered the effect that the weak sanctions might have on future incidents, "This will not be the last protest to occur at UCI.  Nor should it be.  Peaceful protest is an important element of public discourse, even when the topic is controversial - perhaps particularly when the topic is controversial.  But the group that organized this protest and their advocates would have us believe that the First Amendment provides a free pass for any and all conduct by protesters.  That message is not only false, as any first-year law student can tell you.  That message is dangerous.  The school acknowledged that the First Amendment does not protect this type of conduct, but by failing to appropriately punish the offenders, UCI failed to counter that dangerous message."
     
    Irvine officials have not disclosed whether university investigators have identified the persons who chased Ms. Kopley, although LDB attorneys believe it would have been relatively easy for them to do so using basic investigative techniques.  The university would not even confirm that they attempted to identify the offenders, although Ms. Kopley can partially describe articles of clothing that they wore, and believes she would be able to recognize them in an unbiased line-up or photo array.
     
    Marcus also stated, "Vice Chancellor Parham's statement also fails to mention the obviously anti-Semitic nature of the violations here.  One would never know from his statement that hate was at work in this angry mob."  Despite the claims of SJP, NLG, and Palestine Legal, political activism played no role in the decision of a few to harass Ms. Kopley.  Eliana had gone to see a movie with other Jewish students. She was interested in a documentary about Israelis her own age, and what their lives are like when they are required to serve in the IDF.  The only thing the harassers knew about her was that she identified with the Jewish students on the other side of the door.  That is anti-Semitism - not anti-Israel political action.
     
    Marcus continued, "Indeed, it appears that Dr. Parham is either unaware of the gravity of the facts in this case or unwilling to publicly disclose them. The signal this sends to the Jewish community and to all minorities on campus is one of indifference.  That signal will be heard by victims of intimidation, harassment, and bias for some time to come."
     
    Finally, LDB attorneys noted that the Regents of the University of California sent UC administrators a very strong signal just a few months ago that they need to respond more firmly to anti-Semitism and intolerance.  Marcus commented, "It now seems clear that the Regents' message still hasn't been fully heard at UCI.  The Regents should be appalled at how little their statements are being followed by Irvine's Office of Student Affairs. Irvine needs to demonstrate that they have heard the Regents' statement and that they are prepared to reform their process. At this point, it appears that Irvine's Office of Student Affairs is still behaving in the same old way that got the Regents so incensed in the first place."
