PlayerAuctions is Hyped Up About Destiny 2

CD keys_destiny2

Destiny 2’s new features include a solo campaign, clans and character continuity, and no more Grimoire Cards.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, July 21, 2017 / — Destiny 2 is the long-awaited sequel of Destiny, the first-person shooter (FPS) MMO, a game that people didn’t think would be a smash hit. Sure, there have been other FPS MMOs around for a while, but none of them are as attractive as Destiny.

What’s New with Destiny 2?

Solo Campaign

The sequel features a solo campaign rather than the straight out multiplayer-only gameplay in Destiny. It seems like an odd choice for a multiplayer-focused game. Even though the first mission is available during the beta stage, a reviewer stated that they didn’t “feel alone or abandoned” because of the interactive NPCs.

No More Grimoire Cards

The game drops Grimoire Cards entirely; instead, it focuses on telling the story throughout the gameplay. Hurrah for a proper tale! It seems like Bungie is taking more of a cinematic approach to the story, focusing on character development and narrative. Expect relatable, memorable characters in an epic account that span the galaxy.

Clans and Character Continuity

Clans will have a new feature called the “Guided Games,” which enable Clans with incomplete members to seek a player outside of the clan to make a full party. There are other new features to look forward to, though there isn't much info on those yet.

Players from Destiny have the option to move their clans to Destiny 2 through, which will last for one month (Clan creation goes live, after). There could be a feature to transfer your character somehow too, but for now, it’s only a rumor.

Release Dates

Although Destiny 2 releases September 6, 2017, for both PS4 and Xbox One, the closed beta for PS4 has been open since July 18. In fact, it will run until Friday, July 21st, with Xbox’s beta running a day late on the 19th. Those who pre-ordered the game may access the beta on their chosen console. It features the first mission of the solo campaign, “Strike mode,” and new features of PvP, such as the “Countdown” mode. During open beta, the Farm will open for players to explore on the 23rd.

The PC version of Destiny 2 launches October 24, a few weeks after the console release. The beta testing will happen sometime in August. In the meantime pre-order CD Keys for Destiny 2 so that you can be up to speed with things.

New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Navy Veteran with Mesothelioma in New Jersey To Call for Direct Access To New York Attorneys Who Get the Best Compensation Results

Most people with mesothelioma in New Jersey fail to realize-if they want the best compensation they will need to have some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys assisting them”

— New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 21, 2017 / — The New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are now urging a US Navy Veteran in New Jersey who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma or their family members to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure they are talking directly to some of the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys who consistently get the best possible financial compensation claims for their clients. The attorneys we suggest for Navy Veterans with mesothelioma in New Jersey are based in New York City, they are recognized as national leaders in mesothelioma compensation for Navy Veterans and they are extremely dedicated to their clients with this rare cancer." http://NewJersey.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Center fears most people with mesothelioma in New Jersey fail to realize-if they want the best possible mesothelioma compensation they will need to have some of the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys assisting them. As the group would also explain anytime at 800-714-0303 to a Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma there is no such thing as the following:

* "A federally sponsored claims center for Navy Veterans or people with mesothelioma. To get the best mesothelioma compensation you need to have one of the nation's most capable fulltime mesothelioma attorneys assisting you.
* "We have lately noticed a cable TV ad talking about class actions and mesothelioma. A class action will not result in a person with confirmed mesothelioma receiving the very best possible financial compensation. Class actions usually benefit lawyers as opposed to the people who have been victimized by something like asbestos.
* "Billions Recovered-Typically law firms that make this claim are middlemen marketing law firms who sell people with mesothelioma to other law firms who actually will do the work on the financial claim.
* "US Navy Mesothelioma Center-"Again the US Navy or the federal government do not sponsor a claims center nor do they assist Navy Veterans with a mesothelioma compensation claim that can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. However, we do, and if a Navy Veteran or person in New Jersey has been diagnosed can call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure they are talking directly with some of the nation's most qualified mesothelioma attorneys-on the spot." http://NewJersey.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center wants to emphasize theirs is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed Veteran or person anywhere in New Jersey, including communities such as Newark, Jersey City, Paterson, Elizabeth, Edison, Toms River, or Trenton. http://NewJersey.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For the best possible treatment option in New Jersey, the New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital. The Rutgers University’s Cancer Institute of New Jersey in New Brunswick:

According to the CDC, the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in New Jersey include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, oil refinery workers, manufacturing or industrial workers, chemical plant workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, mill workers, printers, welders, boiler technicians, or construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s or 1980’s.

The New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “Our services for people with mesothelioma in New Jersey are designed to make certain they get the best possible compensation, and the attorneys we suggest have New Jersey references, as we would like to explain at 800-714-0303.”

For more information about mesothelioma please refer to the National Institutes of Health’s web site related to this rare form of cancer:

Spiritual composer/producer, Elise Lebec, Promotes Peace through Music with ORIGIN: One World Turning Project, Volume 1

Origin Cover Art

ORIGIN, by Elise Lebec, releases worldwide today via Bay Area Films.

ORIGIN won an Akademia Award for Best Christian/Gospel song “Sufi Dance” – the album debuts 7/21/17.

ORIGIN is a vibrant New Age/World Fusion album blending Egyptian and western instrumentation; an energetic exploration of ancient instruments and modern sounds.

It’s an expression of human kindness…the intention to bring the beauty of diverse cultures together via fresh combinations of Arabic & western instruments.”

— Elise Lebec, singer, composer, producer, ORIGIN

BURBANK, CA, UNITED STATES, July 21, 2017 / — Bay Area Film Company is pleased to announce the release of Elise Lebec's new album, ORIGIN, as well as an Akademia Award win (Best Christian/Gospel Song) for the single "Sufi Dance" and a nomination in the Hollywood Music and Media Awards. Lebec, an inspirational artist, singer and composer recalls the moment when the new age/world album was born, sharing “I looked into the eyes of the Goddess Sekhmet and felt my entire soul shift. There I was in Egypt, the Fertile Crescent of the Cradle of Civilization, the Origin of the Awakening of Humanity.”

Lebec's first trip to Egypt was profound, introducing her to new sounds and fresh insights about the people, their culture, and our mutual misunderstandings. ORIGIN, the album, is a direct result of her ensuing visits to Egypt. It is a vibrant New Age/World Fusion album blending Egyptian and western instrumentation and vocals featuring Lebec with special guest performances by Charlie Bisharat, Sheikh Mahmoud El Tohamy and 36 other magnificent musicians; it is an energetic, spiritual exploration of combining ancient instruments and modern sounds to convey Lebec's unique vision of the challenges facing today's world, available at Bay Area Films releases the album worldwide today.

Under the same blazing Saqqaran sun that drenched the warrior deity of antiquity 5000 years ago, this musical citizen of the world had experienced the start of what has become a spiritual illumination…an epiphany which compelled her to embark on an intuitive, cross-cultural musical journey of discovery, deep creative expression, and a calling to use it as a vehicle for bringing disparate cultures together.

The outcome, ORIGIN, is an intense, feminine and uniquely beautiful album that Lebec will enter for a Best New Age Album GRAMMY Award this Fall. Upon hearing a preview, writer Karl Stober commented, "Lebec is the Siren of the Desert Sun in 2017. An incredible quest to the past in sound and arrangements."

ORIGIN is an amalgam of exotic Upper Egyptian traditional instruments, distinctive vocals, and contemporary production techniques, building a transcendent bridge between contrasting worlds. “It’s an expression of human kindness,” says Lebec of the release, “…the intention to bring the beauty of diverse cultures together via fresh combinations of Arabic & western instruments. We have built a harmonious narrative merging the millennia of Egyptian music with elements and forms of modern popular music to help exemplify that we are all related beings of planet Earth; one extended family turning in our respective orbits around the Sun.”

This “One World Turning” concept is woven into the fabric of the entire project and will be reflected in and represented by all the media releases, from the recorded music to promotional videos, interviews, live performances, and ORIGIN merchandise, which can be found at

Music critic Jonathan Widran commented, “Elise shares her profound personal feeling of awakening and experiences of Egypt in music, and becomes a musical bridge builder of two prominent world cultures. Using exotic Upper Egyptian instrumentation, her distinctive vocals, and contemporary production techniques as a transcendent connection between East and West, she creates a powerful, compelling collection.”

ORIGIN was composed and executive produced by Lebec, who began recording in Cairo when she returned several times after her initial visit last August. Ancient instruments, expertly played by local traditional musicians under her direction include lute, dulcimer, oud, ancient flutes, Upper Egyptian tablas, and an assortment of handmade drums and percussion. Several Egyptian singers, including the very famous Sheikh Mamoud El Tahomy, and Arabic rappers were tapped to round out the project’s vivid authenticity. The resultant sessions were then sent back to Los Angeles to four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning Producer/Engineer Dave Way. He in turn brought in one of Prince’s programmers, Eric Anest, who applied Western song forms to the myriad tracks from Cairo resulting in musical “beds” onto which a variety of Western instruments were overdubbed. These include over 35 passionate musicians playing violin (such as Shadowfax’s GRAMMY® Award-winning violinist Charlie Bisharat), electric violins, cellos, alto sax, pedal steel guitar, Hammond organ, background vocals and, of course, Elise Lebec’s own lead vocals.

“As a composer, hearing music I have never heard before is like trying a new dish that tastes amazing, as if a whole new world is opening," Lebec shares. "Just when I think there’s nothing else to learn or explore, I realize that I haven’t even scratched the surface of Life Experience. To me, Music is an all-encompassing form of intimate expression. And what better force is there to bring divergent peoples together? That is the essence of this ORIGIN project! I want to create a dialogue about peace and understanding.”

ORIGIN is available in both physical and digital form at all quality music retailers and online music sites. To request Radio Airplay copies, contact Ed & Stacey Bonk at LAZZ Promotions, (905) 470-1230, or

Scholarship goal reached for Innocent Rwamba Nyaga in Kenya to pursue MS in market research at the University of Nairobi

AMSTERDAM, NY, NETHERLANDS, July 20, 2017 / — The ESOMAR Foundation, a charitable organization representing the market research industry, in cooperation with global non-profit Women in Research (WIRe) and Unilever, recently funded the Marketing and Social Research Association’s (MSRA) Kenyan Scholarship initiative. The scholarship has been assigned to recipient Innocent Rwamba Nyaga, who will be pursuing a Master of Science in Marketing, with a focus on Market Research, at the University of Nairobi, School of Business.

“Providing the opportunity for Innocent to pursue her studies in the market research field, and support the future of our industry makes us proud here at The ESOMAR Foundation.” says

WIRe is the leading non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of women in the market research industry, providing career development and educational opportunities for women while supporting gender diversity initiatives. Unilever, a global consumer goods company with a strong focus on charitable initiatives—especially in emerging markets—matched the WIRe community’s contribution dollar for dollar to the scholarship fund.

We are thrilled that our community stepped forward to support this important initiative, and we offer our congratulations to Innocent as she works toward her goal of a career in marketing research.”

NCJFCJ Recognizes Innovation and Impact With 3rd Annual Justice Innovation Awards

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) announced two honorees of the 3rd annual Justice Innovation Awards

For many years, Judge Connors has shown a remarkable dedication to implementing tribal and community court peacemaking principles to resolve cases.”

— Bridget M. McCormack, Michigan Supreme Court

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 20, 2017 / — (Reno, Nev.) – The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) announced two honorees of the 3rd annual Justice Innovation Awards recognizing the national Innovator of the Year and the Impact of the Year recipients: the Honorable Timothy Connors of the 22nd Circuit Court in Washtenaw County, Mich. and the Latin American Youth Center in Washington, D.C. The honorees were recognized at the NCJFCJ’s 80th Annual Conference highlighting informative presentations on current and cutting edge topics that inspired, provoked and precipitated discussions about issues facing the juvenile and family court system.

The Innovator of the Year Award honors an active, in-good-standing NCJFCJ member who has inspired, sponsored, promoted or led an innovation or accomplishment of national significance in juvenile justice, child abuse and neglect, family law, and/or domestic violence. The Impact of the Year Award recognizes, from the Annual Conference-host state (Washington, D.C.), an individual, state/local court, law firm, advocacy group, or service provider who has been instrumental in leading or implementing significant improvements or innovations which advance the mission of the NCJFCJ.

“It is our privilege to recognize the outstanding work of both Judge Connors and the team at the Latin American Youth Center,” said Judge Anthony (Tony) Capizzi, NCJFCJ president. “We honor their tireless commitment to improving the lives of children and families, especially those in our justice system. We hope that we can continue to raise awareness of the core issues that affect our nation’s families.”

Judge Connors serves as co-chair of the Michigan Tribal-State-Federal Forum, instrumental in drafting the Michigan Indian Family Preservation Act. In 2013, he was awarded a grant by the Michigan Supreme Court to determine whether tribal peacemaking values and practices could be implemented in a state court system. As presiding judge of the Washtenaw County Peacemaking Court, he has fostered the healing of important relationships among litigants in child welfare, family and probate cases by incorporating Native American peacemaking principles and philosophies in conflict resolution.

“I am forever grateful to the Michigan Supreme Court, the University of Michigan Law School, and now the NCJFCJ for opening this path of Peacemaking and restorative justice in state court systems,” said Judge Connors. “This path is the creation of the collaborative effort of the National American Indian Court Judges Association, the Native American Rights Fund Indigenous Peacemaking Initiative and the Michigan Tribal State Federal Forum to find common ground. This common ground greatly benefits our youth, our families and our communities. I hope all of our states will choose to walk this path together.”

“This is a great national honor that Judge Connors has received, and it is well deserved,” said Bridget M. McCormack, Michigan Supreme Court. “For many years, Judge Connors has shown a remarkable dedication to implementing tribal and community court peacemaking principles to resolve cases. In fact, his court was the first in Michigan to adopt the use of these principles, and his success in this area has prompted other states to take notice. His passion for applying justice in collaborative and innovative ways is nothing short of inspiring.”

“Judge Connors honors and respects the traditions of the tribes and tribal justice systems that provided the foundational knowledge and peacemaking principles for his court,” said Nikki Borchardt Campbell, Executive Director, National American Indian Court Judges Association. “We believe these restorative principles can be beneficial to participants when applied correctly and in the exact manner that Judge Connors has applied them in his court. His court and his approach are shining examples. We are proud of his work and his contribution to both state and tribal courts.”

The Latin American Youth Center’s (LAYC) mission is to empower a diverse population of youth to achieve a successful transition to adulthood, through multi-cultural, comprehensive, and innovative programs that address youths’ social, academic, and career needs. The LAYC works with every young person who comes through their doors, to help them develop the skills and self-confidence they need to make a successful transition to young adulthood. The LAYC offers bilingual programs and services designed to address the multiple needs of the young people and families in the community.

They have services to help youth achieve independent living, job training, substance abuse treatment programs, and a teen mom's program. Their areas of service include: Academics, with year-round tutoring and homework assistance, after-school programs, GED exam preparation and education, and college preparation and retention; Arts and Recreation, offering art and media programs, out-of-school time recreation, and mentoring; Job Readiness, with job preparedness and life skills training, job placement services, internships, and career exploration; Safe Housing, offering short- and long-term family-based and transitional living programs for homeless and runaway youth with special programs for young families and LGBTQ-identifying youth; and Health and Wellness, providing welcoming, non-clinical settings for sexual health education and HIV/STI/pregnancy testing and counseling, mental health and substance use disorders treatment, and parenting skills for young parents.

“The work we do at the Latin American Youth Center is truly a collaboration between compassionate District Court judges like the Honorable Hiram Puig-Lugo who committed to supporting our communities, the dedicated staff of D.C.'s Children and Family Services Administration, and LAYC's team of youth developers and social workers going above and beyond for each youth who comes through our doors,” said Lori M. Kaplain, president and CEO, LAYC. “Together, through innovative and community-based collaboration, we're able to make a real difference in the lives of our most vulnerable youth, in particular for youth of color and immigrant youth. We are truly humbled and appreciative of this award.”

“The Latin American Youth Center has a long and distinguished history of dedicated support for families in the Washington, D.C. area,” said the Honorable Hiram Puig-Lugo, Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Their commitment to service has helped countless immigrant and non-immigrant youth navigate the difficult journey from adolescence into adulthood. They are a valuable, integral and indispensable part of our community.”

Renegade Raw Milk Farmer Returns with his ‘Symphony in the Barn’


Rehearsing in the Orchard


Symphony in the Barns Event Takes Place on Glencolton Farms

Celebrity chefs and musicians partner to bring guests a local food feast and a symphony under the stars August 5 and 6th

…celebrate the food, the people, and the music that make up this community. We are celebrating life on the farm and the life it sustains through the food produced here.”

— Michael Schmidt

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, July 20, 2017 / — On Saturday August 5th and Sunday 6th, 2017, classical musical group, Music in the Barns, will partner with Glencolton Farms for a weekend-long celebration of music and food and agriculture. The festivities will take place on the farm: 393889 Concession 2, Durham ON. Classical music radio personality Alexa Petrenko will emcee the event.

The two-day festival will feature food from dozens of Ontario’s local organic farmers prepared by Toronto’s top chefs. Guests will hear several concerts—played by a team of international musicians–during the weekend, most notably an after dark concert under the stars Saturday beginning at 7:00pm and a late night roaming concert beginning at 10:00. Sunday will feature a local food feast prepared by several celebrity chefs, including Toronto chef Jamie Kennedy, and Carey McLellan amongst many others. There will be additional concerts and music throughout the afternoon and evening Sunday.

From 1995 until 2012, Michael Schmidt hosted Symphony in the Barn as a concert on the farm with and for international music lovers. Organizers hope to reinvent this much-loved, annual event by introducing local food and celebrity chefs.

Past participant and world-class clarinetist, Kathy Pirtle remarks on her experience playing for the symphony, “for me, this was one of the most powerful music experiences I’ve had in my life. Playing the concerto with cows singing in the background sent goosebumps down my spine as I was playing it. It was a significant moment in my life as an artist. The farm represents the energy and synergy of life.”

Glencolton Farms, host for the weekend, is a biodynamic farm in Durham, Ontario famous for their legal battles to promote food freedom in Canada. Farmer Michael Schmidt has been the center of the controversy over raw milk since 1994, often appearing in court to make his case for food freedom.

“Music is an important part of my life and the community surrounding the farm,” Schmidt says. “It is part of what draws people here. We host this to bring people together and celebrate the food, the people, and the music that make up this community. We are celebrating life on the farm and the life it sustains through the food produced here.”

Tickets are available (until sold out) through the organizers’ ticket sales page. Proceeds from the event will support the Raw Milk Legal Defense Fund.

The Toronto based “Music in the Barns,” founded in 2008, takes classical concerts out of the traditional hall with their signature, site-specific “installation concerts.”

Glencolton Farms is a biodynamic farm in Durham, Ontario offering internships to aspiring farmers and selling meats and baked good to their community.

50th Victorian Humpback Whale Catalogued – a Huge Milestone For Conservation

50th Victorian humpback whale catalogued – a huge milestone to achieve greater protection for humpback whales in southern Australia.

MELBOURNE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, July 20, 2017 / — Greater protection for humpback whales in southern Australia is now possible thanks to the work of the Two Bays Whale Project. We now think Bass Strait could be a previously unknown ‘whale corridor’ for some humpback whales on their winter migration along Australia’s east coast. This understanding is critical to conservation.
The Two Bays Whale Project and its partners, the Dolphin Research Institute and Wildlife Coast Cruises have just catalogued the 50th whale into the Victorian Humpback Whale Catalogue! ‘Two Bays’ denotes the particular interest in whales along Victoria’s central coast.
“The milestone could not have come at a better time” said project coordinator David Donnelly, who’s niece photographed whale number 50. “We have been documenting large whale movements in the Port Phillip and Western Port region since 2001 but have only recently started cataloguing humpback whale flukes as part of the national humpback whale fluke collective” Donnelly said.
It can be quite difficult to get clear identification images of humpback whales but year 7 Emerald Secondary College student Alana Loschenkohl managed to snap an image of VIC_0050 as it lifted its fluke (tail) above the water off the coast of Kilcunda on July 8th. Alana was visiting Phillip Island with her family when a trip out on a Winter Whale Cruise with Wildlife Coast Cruises provided her with the opportunity to snap the unique fluke. “It was quite amazing seeing the whales so close to the boat, playing with dolphins and seals” said Alana. “I didn’t really know that my photo would be so important but I’m happy it is” she went on to say. Alana’s photo is one of many submitted to the Two Bays Whale Project by members of the public over the last three years.
Working with interstate colleague Peta Beeman at Southern Cross University, has now produced a confirmed match for VIC_0050 to a sighting off Byron Bay, New South Wales in 2014. “This is extremely exciting and very rewarding for the Two Bays Whale Project team as its our first interstate re-sight”
Individual humpback whales can be identified using photographs of the unique black and white patterning found on the underside of the fluke, also known as the tail.
This year, it is expected that up to 26,000 humpback whales will make the northerly migration along Australia’s east coast to the calving grounds…a far cry from the post whaling population estimate of around 200.
Little is known about the migration of humpback whales along Victoria’s south coast but with interest growing and the ongoing work of the Two Bays Whale Project, it is hoped that we may soon be able to unlock some of the secrets of these magnificent winter visitors.

Keen whale watchers who wish to catch a glimpse of these ocean giants can either join a Winter Whale Cruise from Cowes, Phillip Island or take a pair of binoculars and seek high ground along our beautiful coastline.

Members of the community can find out about getting involved and supporting the Two Bays Project at We have a 100 WHALES Appeal to reach the 100 Whale milestone in the Victorian catalogue.
