William Lightner reflects on award-winning contributions to fields of religion and spirituality

Crediting much of his success to his education, William Lightner has gone on to lead a varied and prosperous life.

MARIETTA, GA, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — From finance executive to evangelist and public speaker, the Judson University, Illinois, graduate was recently awarded the title of 2018 Religious and Spiritual Services Professional of the Year by Strathmore's Who's Who.

"Judson University was an outstanding college for me because of the higher education setting and their worship of God – they made me into the man I am today," remarks William Lightner.

Graduating the Illinois-based educational institution before joining the military, and later taking up successful careers in professional sales and finance, Lightner has further gone on to travel the globe in his role as a religious evangelist.

Strathmore's Who's Who recognizes Lightner for his years of dedicated hard work in the fields of religion and spirituality. He was selected from over 1,100 shortlisted individuals to take this year's title.

Lightner, also the author of End Time Prophecy Made Easy, has traveled tens of thousands of miles in his religious and spiritual pursuits, all the while serving God in his new-found evangelical role.

"I've traveled tens of thousands of miles to almost 30 different countries over the course of several years," explains Lightner, who has assisted hundreds of individuals around the world, often on a one-to-one basis, in finding comfort in religion.

During his travels, Lightner has also addressed vast crowds typically numbering several thousand at a time. Here, he would teach people to acknowledge fellowship and faith through prayer, allowing them to live what he calls, "a more sound life as a follower of Christ."

Receiving news of his award win, Lightner remarks, "I'm incredibly proud to have been selected as this year's Religious and Spiritual Services Professional of the Year by Strathmore's Who's Who. It's fantastic recognition and a great accolade."

"I couldn't be happier," he adds.

Strathmore's Who's Who is a yearly publication which profiles and features successful individuals from the worlds of education, medicine, research, healthcare, business, law, government, sciences, engineering, and the arts. The predominantly biographical publication honors professionals who have demonstrated leadership and achievement in their respective fields.

Lightner explains, "Strathmore's Who's Who encourages accomplished professionals to network, take part in research, share information, and carry out mutually beneficial business."

The awards also recognize achievement in fields such as elementary and special needs education, emergency medicine, geoscience and geological consulting, healthcare therapy, and literary arts, as well as many others.

First educated at a private Baptist school, Lightner later joined Vestal High School in New York, before completing his education at Judson University.

It wasn't until later in life that Lightner decided to take a break from the mainstream, choosing instead to undertake a six-month training and development process to join a well known religious mission. "They're one organization I've loved doing work for," notes Lightner. "I'm honored to be connected with such a great group."

Now recognized as a popular evangelist and public speaker, Lightner believes that a considerable degree of his success in this area is owed to his passionate and personable nature. "I also believe it's about being powerful with words, which is something I strive to do every day," adds Lightner in closing.

Translator Keyboard: Instant Translation Connects You with the World

We want to make the Translator Keyboard, the most popular AI-enabled assistant, a context-savvy, real-time universal language translator.

RIYADH, RIYADH , SAUDI ARABIA, April 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the use of foreign languages becoming more popular than ever before, the demands for instant translation keep growing worldwide. Generally speaking, photographic translation, speech translation and other forms of interpretation can satisfy almost everyone’s needs.

However, there is still a big pain point– when chatting with someone in a foreign language, it always annoys us when we can’t find the exact word to use since it is not our mother tongue. Because of that, we have to switch between IM Apps and translation software from time to time. It is not only time-consuming but also incredibly tedious.

Admittedly, there are several applications on the market that seem to be able to solve this issue. But from customer reviews on App Store, we know that almost all of these apps are crudely designed with poor stability and worse user experience.

The Translator Keyboard is designed to solve this problem with an exclusive combination of translation and keyboard together. With the world's leading Google Translation Engine and our advanced keyboard development technology, we can guarantee the quality of reading as well as the smoothness and stability of keyboard typing at the same time. The Translator Keyboard is committed to developing the best solution to translation issues, helping people become confident and comfortable when using foreign languages.

“We want to make the Translator Keyboard, the most popular AI-enabled assistant, a context-savvy, real-time universal language translator,” the Product Manager, Xuan Liu said.

As you may see, we have already attracted attention from some of our keyboard users in Saudi Arabia.

Check us out on Snapchat https://www.snapchat.com/add/keyboard_transl or Instagram https://www.instagram.com/translator_keyboard/

Experts in Maternal Care and High-Risk Pregnancy Release Stuck in Bed: The Pregnancy Bed Rest Book

Maternal care and high-risk pregnancy experts Jennifer Degl & Angela Davids release Stuck in Bed, a picture book for children whose mothers are on bed rest

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Experts in Maternal Care and High-Risk Pregnancy Release Stuck in Bed: The pregnancy bed rest picture book for kids … and moms

In recognition of World Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week (April 30 – May 6) and just in time for Mother's Day, maternal care and high-risk pregnancy experts Jennifer Degl and Angela Davids have released Stuck in Bed, a picture book for children whose mothers are coping with bed rest or restricted activity, due to a high-risk pregnancy. Celebrate Maternal Health Awareness Week and Mother’s Day with Stuck in Bed’s launch by:

Entering HERE: http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/b1ebbb962/? (April 25 – May 2) to win one of 5 copies of Stuck in Bed
Joining Jen for live reading and chat on April 25th at 3 PM EST: www.faceboook.com/jenniferdegl
Joining Angela for live reading and chat on April 25th at 7 PM EST: www.facebook.com/keepemcookin
Purchasing Stuck in Bed on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/2H5JJYS

Stuck in Bed is a story about a boy whose mother is on bed rest, and it weaves positive and practical tips for moms throughout, making it an uplifting and emotionally supportive resource for women on bed rest or who have been advised to restrict their activity during pregnancy. Maternal care experts Jennifer Degl, Founder of Speaking for Moms and Babies, Inc., and Angela Davids, Founder of the high-risk pregnancy website KeepEmCookin.com, are the co-authors.

“While high-risk expectant mothers are monitored by health care providers, there is still a lack of emotional support for moms who are prescribed bed rest,” explains Degl. “Much of the time they are by themselves at home or in a hospital bed, feeling very isolated. Stuck in Bed let’s them know they aren’t alone and gives them a tool to help explain their bed rest to a younger child.”

Given that the U.S. preterm birth rate is 9.8 percent of all deliveries, Stuck in Bed is a valuable and in-demand resource as about 1 million U.S. women are prescribed bed rest each year in order to reduce the likelihood of a premature delivery. Bed rest is prescribed for many serious conditions, including preterm labor, short cervix, premature rupture of membranes, preeclampsia, and several placental disorders, making Stuck in Bed an invaluable tool for obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, social workers and psychologists who work in maternal care. Mental health professionals who work with young children experiencing stress related to their mother being on bed rest can also benefit by using Stuck in Bed as a tool for discussion.

“Stuck in Bed helps kids and moms adjust to their new reality,” adds Davids. “We want to show high-risk mothers how they can still be the best moms ever in the eyes of their children. We teach them how to make the most of their time together and guide them in talking to their children about bed rest in a positive way.”

The Stuck in Bed co-authors are available for press interviews and bookstore engagements. Wholesale opportunities are available to health care providers and organizations in the maternal care field. Email info@stuckinbedbook.com for more information. Stuck in Bed is a collaborative partner of Better Postpartum and is a partner in The Blue Dot Project’s Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week. Speaking for Moms and Babies, Inc. and KeepEmCookin.com are members of the Preemie Parent Alliance. Learn more at StuckInBedBook.com.

About Stuck in Bed
Stuck in Bed is a picture book about pregnancy bed-rest from a young boy’s perspective. Kids ask a lot of questions, and Stuck in Bed's mom answers her son’s questions with optimism and excitement. She reassures her son that although things will be different for a little while, the two of them can have a lot of fun in the meantime! Moms having a high-risk pregnancy can also use some reassurance, so Stuck in Bed includes tips for being a fantastic mom, even when stuck in bed. Moms are also shown how to make the most of time together with their children and guides them in talking to children about bed rest in a positive way. Learn more and participate in free giveaways and live-chats on Facebook and Twitter and email info@stuckinbedbook.com for more information or visit: http://www.stuckinbedbook.com/ and purchase the book at http://amzn.to/2H5JJYS.

Jacqueline Durham to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

RED BANK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In our everyday lives we must cope with issues that can sometimes be so overwhelming they become debilitating and affect our overall well- being. Fortunately, there are qualified people that we can turn to that can guide us and help significantly the quality of our lives.

Jacqueline is an exceptional licensed clinical social worker with over 28 years at Rutgers university in Acute Services and recently supervised a group for adults with severe mental illness and substance abuse.

“My wish is that all individuals will seek out some form of therapy during their lifetime since it’s not only a highly effective method to iron out issues that have been sitting in our head since childhood, it’s also a wonderful opportunity to be heard and acknowledged,” says Jacqueline. “It’s extremely difficult to handle stress alone and it genuinely makes a world of difference if everyone participates in some form of therapy.”

Jacqueline works with individuals of all ages from twelve to adults with adjustment disorders, stress, anger management, relationship problems, undergoing trauma, or people that just need someone solace and comfort. Her clients include the elderly population who for instance have retired and face confusion, uncertainty and seek fulfillment.

“People fear the stigma connected with therapy. I aspire to be the person that makes positive changes in your life so I invite people to seek me out and let’s make change together,” says Jacqueline. “We will thoroughly identify what bridge we need to cross and we will cross it together.”

Concerned with the inadequacies of our school system, Jacqueline is in the process of putting together an invaluable proposal to educate children on problem solving and anger management so we can begin to nurture and guide our youth way before anger builds and prevent unnecessary tragedies. One of her ultimate goals is to become Vice President of The National Association of Social Workers.

“Social work is a very rewarding career and can lead to other marvelous opportunities such as a position in politics, a therapist, or a policy changer,” says Jacqueline. “If you have the heart to create change in our world then social work is the way to go.”

Jacqueline emphasizes how we should be utterly focused on promoting, encouraging and enhancing the many kind gestures from people all over the world rather than focus on so much negativity that is predominately depicted in the media. By inspiring people to be altruistic we can create a more positive and enlightening world.

“Life is not easy and every day we face a ton of obstacles,” says Jacqueline. “But it’s critical to know that when you’re feeling disheartened you can reach out for support,” says Jacqueline. “Know that your dreams will come with challenges and if we are prepared to meet them we will be able to live much healthier, happier, and joyful lives.”

CUTV news will feature Jacqueline in an interview with Jim Masters Monday April 23rd at 1 p.m. EST.

Garsington Opera World Premiere The Skating Rink

Garsington Opera World Premiere The Skating Rink Featuring Live Figure Skating Opening 5 July


On 5 July 2018 Garsington Opera stages its first festival world premiere. Based on award-winning novel The Skating Rink by Chilean author Roberto Bolaño, the opera tells a thrilling tale of jealousy, political corruption and passion.

Set in a seaside town on the Costa Brava, the production will feature live figure-skating and an exceptional cast. The story of The Skating Rink is told by three narrators, revolving around Nuria, a beautiful young figure-skating champion. When she is dropped from the Olympic team, Enric, a besotted civil servant, pilfers public funds and builds her a secret practice rink in a deserted mansion. Nuria has affairs and the plot soon spins into blackmail, bad faith and treachery; the skating rink becomes a crime scene.

Leading British composer David Sawer, whose previous operatic work includes From Morning to Midnight (ENO 2001), has composed a score which is full of character, drama and beauty, drawing on Spanish and Latin American styles, set to a libretto by award-winning playwright Rory Mullarkey. David Sawer said: “Immediately what grabbed me about the book was its structure. The fact that it is a story told from multiple viewpoints; that there isn’t just one linear narrative, that there are interlocking stories and that the events are told from different perspectives…that was very interesting for me, musically. There are lots of different themes in the narrative. What I think I’ve written is almost like a filmstrip, which will come to life when it is staged.”

Stewart Laing directs and designs, supported by regular collaborators, including Korean-born Costume Designer Hyemi Shin, who was the overall winner of the 2011 Linbury Prize and recently designed The Return of Ulysses (Roundhouse/Royal Opera). Garry Walker conducts and the cast includes: Neal Davies (Enric), Susan Bickley (Carmen), Alan Oke (Rookie), Sam Furness (Gaspar), Lauren Zolezzi (Nuria), Ben Edquist (Remo), Claire Wild (Caridad) and Louise Winter (Pilar).

BBC Radio 3 will record a live performance for broadcast in the autumn.
Performances: 5, 8, 10, 14, 16 July 2018 (Start time 6.50pm)
Tickets: 01865 361636 or www.garsingtonopera.org

The 2018 Season that opens on 31 May for a seven week season, features four new productions Verdi’s Falstaff, Richard Strauss’s Capriccio, Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and the world premiere of The Skating Rink by composer David Sawer and librettist Rory Mullarkey.
