— Brian Berry the writer and executive producer for Hey Mr. Postman.

CLEVELAND, OH, USA, April 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cleveland-based film production company BerryGood Films, in association with Skip Thomas Productions and One Shot Films sets the world premiere and red carpet event for its feature-length comedic film, "Hey Mr. Postman" on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at AMC Classic Solon 16 formerly Digiplex Solon Cinema 16, 6185 Enterprise Pkwy, Solon, Ohio 44139. The premiere is hosted by Andrew Lloyd, a Cleveland, Ohio resident and owner of the Ohio Entertainment Awards. Red carpet starts at 1:30 p.m. and show time begins promptly at 3 p.m. This is a media friendly event.

"We shot "Hey Mr. Postman" entirely on location in my hometown, Cleveland, Ohio," said "Hey Mr. Postman" Writer and Executive Producer Brian Berry. "The outpouring of support has been overwhelming." Berry has sold out three theaters at the AMC Classic Solon 16. "Fans have already purchased tickets months in advance to attend the highly anticipated official world premiere and red carpet event."

"Hey, Mr. Postman" is based on true events experienced by Berry. "My father retired from the post office after 33 years of service," said Berry. "In 2011, I applied and was hired for a mailman position at the Newburgh Heights Post Office in Cleveland, Ohio. After a year of experiencing unique and wild situations, I was fired."

The film has the feel of the "Friday" movie franchise. The protagonist is Brian Lincoln, a slacker, who refuses to grow up and take real responsibility. When Brian loses his job, he gets a hook up at the post office where he learns just how challenging being the local mailman can be. In addition to all the crazy situations he ends up in, he unwittingly finds himself in the middle of a missing person investigation for which he may be the key to solving it all.

"The amazing cast from Walter Franks to Omar Gooding really took my script to another level, which will take the audience on a wild ride of unforgettable characters, belly laughs, twists and turns," said Berry, a first-time writer. "It's also exciting to have Cleveland native Actress Paula Jai Parker starring in my film." BerryGood Films cast more than thirty local, Northeast Ohio talented actors.

"Our film crew was based out of Ohio. We worked with many other local filmmakers to complete the project," he said. "Some of the one-of-a-kind hip-hop wardrobe was provided by Ohio-based fashion designer Demetrius Brazile of Do You Apparel."

The feature film stars Walter Franks (The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Scream II, Boycott); Liana Mendoza (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious BIG, Ray Donovan, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Better Call Saul, American Horror Story, A Haunted House, Zane Sex Chronicles); Paula Jai Parker (Friday, Hustle & Flow, Hollywood Divas, Ray Donovan, Family Time); Omar Gooding (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious BIG, Baby Boy, Smart Guy, Family Time); Rodney Perry (Madea’s Big Family, The Mo’Nique Show, Family Time); and Anthony ‘AJ’ Johnson (Friday and Menace II Society).

The soundtrack for the film includes original music. The title song, "Hey Mr.Postman," is performed by Artist Fly Tye. Other tracks includes:"I DiIP," by Edawg features Sir Mix_A_Lot and Money B from Digital Underground;"For The Night," by Alphy Nics Featuring Omar Gooding aka "Big O," rap artist Doe Boy, and Rych Twyns' "Ain't Real," from Oakland, California. Cleveland's popular DJ Meel is the music supervisor for the film. He is known as the personal DJ for NBA Star LeBron James.

Cleveland's own award-winning Director Mike Berry, who is not related to Brian Berry, is best known for productions such as "Banger, If You Knew Better," and "3rd Floor West." Producers include Skip Thomas Productions, Tina Hobbs who is also the casting director, Curtis Elerson best known for "Paper in My Pockets," "My Life Over The Top" and "Seed of Hip Hop," and Jillian Holt of Langston Tributes.

The journey from concept to script and production wasn't quick or easy. "I met Brian four years ago," said Elerson who manages Gooding. "I read the script and shot a sizzle reel to help raise the money to shoot the full feature."

When Berry, the writer, funded the film, he called Elerson. "I made a few calls to some of my great acting friends and we brought Hollywood to Cleveland," said Elerson, the CEO of One Shot Films.

“Think the image; see the image; write the image; then make a movie,” says Writer Berry who is also the CEO of BerryGood Films.

“Filmmaking is in my blood,” says Director Berry. “It was my pleasure to work on a film that will appeal to just about every audience while at the same time adding to Cleveland’s thriving art and entertainment culture. We’re building a Hollywood Midwest environment and I’m looking forward to being a big part of that movement.”

Dog And Cat Meat Consumption Prohibition Added To House Farm Bill

Marc Ching

Dog Meat Trade

Rescued Dog

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today the United States House of Representatives Agriculture Committee approved an amendment offered by Congressman Jeff Denham (R-CA) to place the language of H.R. 1406, the Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act into the House of Representatives Farm Bill.

H.R. 1406, authored by Congressman Alcee Hasting (D-FL) and Congressman Vern Buchanan (R-FL), along with 240 co-sponsors from the House, prohibits the slaughter, trade or import/export of dogs and cats for human consumption in the United States – a practice still legal in 44 states.

“I am overjoyed that the House Agriculture Committee has put the language of H.R.1406 into the farm bill and I thank Congressman Denham for his strong support for our cause and for making the amendment” stated Marc Ching, founder and President Emeritus of the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, the sponsors of H.R.1406.

“This is just one small victory in our effort to ban this horrible practice in our country and internationally, but it is an important one and one that could not have been possible without our great team and the strong support we have had from our great authors Congressman Hastings and Congressman Buchanan. There is still a lot of work to do but we are closer now than we have ever been before,” concluded Ching.

The Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, founded by Mr. Ching in 2011 has been a leader in bringing global awareness to the international practice of torturing and butchering of dogs and cats for consumption. Mr. Ching regularly travels to Asia where he personally rescues dogs from this trade, often putting his life in jeopardy to do so. H.R. 1406 is the Foundation’s first legislative effort.

The Farm Bill will move forward for a vote on the House floor and then to conference committee where it will be merged with the Senate version. A final bill is expected to be voted on in September.

Sunscreen Pollution Threatens Health of Coral Reefs in Hanauma Bay, Hawaiʻi

HONOLULU, HAWAI’I , USA , April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hanauma Bay is a US National Clean Water Act Class AA marine embayment situated within the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary on Oahu, Hawaiʻi. It is also the State of Hawaiiʻs first Marine Life Conservation District and just celebrated the 50th Anniversary of that designation in 2017.

As part of our ongoing commitment to protecting the natural qualities of Hanauma Bay in perpetuity, non-profit Friends of Hanauma Bay partnered with Dr Craig Downs, Ph.D. from the non-profit Haereticus Environmental Laboratory in Clifford, Virginia and several concerned volunteers to measure the level of OXYBENZONE sunscreen pollution at Hanauma Bay on November 17, 2017. Volunteers included members of industries critical to Hawaii including the sunscreen Industry (Raw Elements, All Good) and the Hospitality Industry (Aqua-Aston Hotels). The Hawaii State Legislature was also represented by Senator Will Espero (D) and Representative Gene Ward (D).

This sampling event was covered by:

http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/36876108/samples-taken-from-hanauma-bay-could-lead-to-ban-on-certain-sunscreens

Ten water samples were collected in Hanauma Bay that represented the coral reef closest to the beach. The highest concentration of OXYBENZONE was 27,888 nanograms/liter of seawater, and the lowest was 30 nanograms/liter of seawater. The average concentration of OXYBENZONE in Hanauma Bay was 4,661 nanograms/liter of seawater.

Over a dozen scientific papers have demonstrated that OXYBENZONE is highly toxic to marine life, especially coral. OXYBENZONE can cause corals to become more susceptible to coral bleaching, it will damage coral DNA, and it will deform and kill juvenile coral. OXYBENZONE has also been documented to adult male fish into female fish, and cause sexually immature juvenile fish to adopt characteristics common to what is seen in mature, pregnant female fish. OXYBENZONE is toxic to shrimp, sea urchins, and bivalves (e.g. scallops and mussels), and is especially toxic to marine algae. A summary of the scientific environmental literature on OXYBENZONE can found at http://www.haereticus-lab.org/oxybenzone-2/

Two separate and independent “Threat Assessments” for the concentration of OXYBENZONE found in Hanauma Bay were conducted for at least a dozen different marine/coral reef organisms. The first Threat Assessment was conducted by Dr. Silvia Diaz Cruz of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research. She is one of the foremost environmental chemists in the world regarding sunscreen pollution in aquarium and marine environments, as well as human contamination. Dr. Cheryl Woodley of the US National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) conducted the other independent Threat Assessment. Both agenciesʻ findings indicate that the concentrations of OXYBENZONE found at Hanauma Bay pose an acute risk or threat to marine life. It can also be argued that OXYBENZONE is a significant contributor to the degradation of Hanauma Bayʻs coral reefs over the past 30 years.

The “Take Home Message” of this study is that Hanauma Bay is experiencing intolerable levels of OXYBENZONE sunscreen pollution. Since Hanauma Bay is governed by the US Clean Water Act and is being managed by Hawaiiʻs Department of Land and Natural Resources, the City and County of Honolulu, and the US National Marine Sanctuary agency, this pollution needs to be recognized and mitigated immediately by these government entities.

One management option, which is being employed by natural resource agencies in Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines is to “shutdown” all visitor access and use of Hanauma Bay. This would allow the coral reef to recover by removing the the principal stressor – people and their sunscreens. This ban on visitor access is also used in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary-Special Use Areas.

A second option, which is used by some UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is to ban the use and application of all sunscreen products by visitors to Hanauma Bay.

A third option, which is used by Mexicoʻs marine and terrestrial Eco-Parks, os to prohibit the use of sunscreen products that contain OXYBENZONE.

Industries that rely on ecological sustainability and responsibility are already acting. The Hospitality Industry has enacted programs that educate their guests about the dangers of sunscreen pollution. Aqua-Aston Hotels has taken the extraordinary measure to not just educate its guests, but to also provide free OXYBENZONE-free sunscreen to them. Last week Hawaiian Airlines announced their Coral Reef and Reef Preservation Initiative that includes in-flight education, OXYBENZONE -free sunscreen samples, and films regarding coral reef conservation and actions that their guests can do to reduce their “sunscreen footprint.” Consumers and visitors can be the decisive factor for coral reef conservation and restoration for Hanauma Bay and coral reefs all over the world.

8-Year-Old Recycling Entrepreneur Speaks to Thousands at WE Day, Alongside Selena Gomez and Alicia Keys

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On April 19, CNN's "Young Wonder," Ryan Hickman, will stand alongside world-renowned speakers and A-list performers at WE Day California, to encourage 16,000 students and educators to create sustainable change in their communities.

Hickman's speech will be filmed at The Forum, for a one-hour ABC television special airing on August 17, 2018 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT. Fellow speakers and presenters include Jennifer Aniston, The Chainsmokers, Morgan Freeman, and Nicole Richie, and hosted by award-winning singers and activists Selena Gomez and Alicia Keys.

Hickman, who has been featured on the Ellen Show and ABC World News, will speak about the success of "Ryan's Recycling Challenge," his campaign to empower others to join him in recycling 300,000 cans and bottles, by May 1, 2018. Any funds raised through the campaign will be donated to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center, in support of rescuing and rehabilitating seals and sea lions.

"Ryan's Recycling Challenge" is hosted by Be A Doer, a free social activism platform that allow campaign hosts to run challenges that directly benefit a charity of their choice.

https://beadoer.io/ryan

"Ryan's enthusiasm is electric. His challenge has inspired grandmas and grade schoolers to commit to recycling nearly 100,000 bottles and cans," said John Negron, CEO of Be A Doer.

At the age of three, Hickman started Ryan's Recycling Company, with the goal of keeping cans and bottles from reaching the ocean. "Recycling helps the Earth, people, plants, animals and other living things, it's very easy to recycle. You just have to grab a bottle, toss it in the correct bin. Boom! I need your help to spread the word and help make the world a better place. Together we can commit to recycling cans and bottles and raise money to make the biggest impact possible," said Hickman.

Pledges and inspiring stories from across the nation can be seen on Hickman's Be A Doer campaign page. Melissa Mathes, who committed to recycling 50 cans and bottles, wrote, "We fill up our recycle bin every week, more so than our garbage can. Although we don't consume too many things in plastic bottles, we do use cans of sparkling water and some milk and oj bottles. Lots of cardboard too. I think what you are doing is great and bringing awareness to many people who need to be aware!!! And helping others who are aware to do more! Thanks Ryan!"

Chicago area Wedding Event Rental Business Highlights Hologram Video On WebSite WeddingHolograms.com

WeddingHolograms.com offers services that will build hologram displays for receptions and weddings from the ground up, in completely custom fashion.”

— Creative Team

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wedding Rental Company Announces New Video Showcasing Novel Holographic Display in Wedding Reception Lobby

In a move sure to garner excitement from wedding planners and newly engaged couples alike, a Chicago-area wedding rental company has created a new video showcasing their brand new wedding hologram rental services. The company, aptly named WeddingHolograms.com, promises a new way to impress friends, family, and guests at weddings, receptions, and events: hologram displays. When you watch the company’s new video, it’s easy to see that these holograms are not the cliches of 80’s movies, but instead elegant and sophisticated artistic creations–creations that are sure to be the next big thing at weddings.

The demo video has a unique role because it’s often difficult for those unfamiliar with the technology to visualize modern holographic installations. Modern holographic displays for weddings and receptions often feature intricate and lifelike designs, such as dual wedding bands or an animated guest book with images. The way that these images can trick the eye–existing in a space that’s both realistic and fantastic–is difficult to do justice with words. That’s why the showcase video released by WeddingHolograms.com is so helpful.

View Wedding Hologram Video Here

“We know that once people actually see these displays in person, they tend to fall in love,” Mark Smith, owner and founder of WeddingHolograms.com said. “No pun intended. So, the video is really designed to show off what a typical hologram experience might look like. All of the designs and styles we show are available for wedding couples to customize today. They can really make it their own, and there’s something about seeing that in a video that really helps it hit home.” Once couples see the videos, Smith continued, they’re always enamored with the technology and the elegance that they see.

For something as novel as a hologram, the rental of these devices is surprisingly affordable. Although the video doesn’t touch on the price specifically, the accompanying website does make mention of comparably priced rentals, such as photo booths, DJs, or lights. But the video makes clear that these holograms can really make statement. Guests will be impressed, boosting the holographic display in social media stories and memories. Photo booths, on the other hand, have become somewhat stale. Wedding goers are really looking for the next big thing, especially in upscale areas such as the Chicago suburbs.

“And what you see in the video is really just the beginning,” Smith said. He mentioned that the purpose of the video is to give people a baseline of what they might expect their own wedding hologram to look like. WeddingHolograms.com offers services that will build hologram displays for receptions and weddings from the ground up, in completely custom fashion. So if you’ve always wanted a wedding that stands out, you’re in luck. These holograms, displayed in wedding or reception areas, can really take the shape or form of just about anything.

The holograms on display in the video illustrate just how sophisticated, chic, and modern a wedding can suddenly become with the right showpiece. Given how expensive, competitive, and luxurious weddings have become, these hologram displays could bring the wow-factor for years to come.

About WeddingHolograms.com: WeddingHolograms.com is a brand new website dedicated to making it easier for wedding planners, event coordinators, and happy couples in the Chicago area to rent custom 3D holographic displays. The website itself will offer unique experiences for brides and grooms, helping them choose the best custom hologram display for their receptions or weddings.

Public Service Ads Warn of Marijuana Harms

If my son had known that marijuana can trigger psychosis there is absolutely no way he would have used it for medicinal pain relief after knee surgery.”

— Lori Robinson, MomsStrong

WASHINGTON, DC, US, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Concerned parents and doctors are coordinating an ad campaign in a number of newspapers around the U.S. to warn the public of serious cannabis health risks. The ads will run near 4/20, an annual day of festivities promoting the hallucinogenic drug cannabis sativa. These parents and professionals believe that 4/20 is fostering drug abuse. A 25 year study of FARS data showed a 12% increase in fatal car crashes after the 4/20 events, comparable to Super Bowl Sunday crashes. The relative risk was found significant for males driving a passenger vehicle age 30 or less.

The ads will run in Colorado newspapers, Pueblo Chieftain, Colorado Springs Gazette, and Durango Herald plus three Washington state newspapers, The Olympian, the Columbian and Everett Ledger. More ads will run in Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon and Vermont. Other groups are running ads in Sacramento, California, Arizona, Vermont, and Michigan.

Parents Opposed to Pot and Moms Strong are parent –led campaigns to educate parents and children about the downside of marijuana. These two groups are spearheading the public interest advertising blitz. AALM.info and Smart Colorado are also running campaigns to discourage youth marijuana use.

The Parental Explicit Warning ad consists of 10 black box warnings put together by three medical doctors who serve as advisors to PopPot.org. The ads warn that the products sold by the marijuana industry pose mental health risks, dangers to pregnant women and unborn children, among others. These risks and side effects warnings are not currently on the labels of any cannabis products sold by marijuana dispensaries. But these doctors think they should be.

“Our emergency department has seen numerous medical complaints related to cannabis use. I have seen everything from protracted vomiting (acute hyperemesis related to cannabis), acute psychosis, seizures induced by high doses of THC, and altered mental status,” explains Dr. Karen Randall of Pueblo, Colorado. Dr. Ken Finn, a pain specialist in Colorado Springs, and Phillip Drum, PharmD, also helped gather the educational warnings for the project. All the scientific references that back up the warnings will be published and along with the ad will be available on PopPot.org/medical-documentation.

“If my son had known that marijuana can trigger psychosis there is absolutely no way he would have used it for medicinal pain relief after knee surgery,” said Lori Robinson of MomsStrong.org.

Parents Opposed to Pot is making the advertising artwork available to drug prevention groups for use as a handout or an ad in a publication of their choosing. Write editor@poppot.org for details.

Parents Opposed to Pot is a 501c3 nonprofit based in Merrifield, Virginia. PopPot aims to bust the myth that cannabis is a harmless herb. No amount of youth pot use is ok, because protecting brains is the goal and every brain matters. Visit their website at http://poppot.org to join or donate to the ad campaign.

Hightower Media Group Releases Special Report “The New Marketing Paradigm”

In today’s highly competitive business market, entrepreneurs must begin by creating a message that includes a meaningful value exchange.

To be more effective marketers, we must develop strategies around holding a potential customer's attention. That means that we need to start treating our customers more like partners.”

— Joe Newtz

BEAVER FALLS, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hightower Media Group, a leading marketing agency in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, announced today the release of their free report: “The New Marketing Paradigm” written by Joe Newtz.

In today’s highly competitive business market, entrepreneurs that wish to market their products and services must begin by creating a message that includes a meaningful value exchange. Information that isn’t presented in a usable, interesting way won’t be consumed, not matter how clever the idea is behind it. This doesn’t mean that we stop trying to create awareness about our company but rather we include value propositions right from the beginning. The main thing to keep in mind is that nobody really cares about your process, or your system, or product as much as they care about the RESULT.

When you live in a small town like Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, you must realize that there must include a real value exchange that runs completely through the entire sales process of acquiring customers and keeping them for life. Instead of wasting time on pointless tactical marketing maneuvers that do not help you significantly increase your business, you must make sure that your message is communicated to (and understood) by your target market in a cost-efficient manner.

Joe Newtz reveals creating awareness of your product or service is not enough. To stay above the competition, you must create compelling and engaging content that requires the construction of a meaningful value exchange.

Hightower Media Group is a Boutique Marketing Agency serving clients in the Greater Pittsburgh area – including Allegheny and Beaver Counties – that focuses on making small businesses stand ABOVE the competition. The team at Hightower Media Group has over 50 years of combined business and marketing experience helping business owners develop a tactical marketing plan that focuses on building and maintaining a strong customer presence.

Ms. Bates will be lending her star power to the inaugural Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases in Washington, D.C. on May 12, addressing participants and supporters from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

“When I began working with LE&RN, I realized that the disease I struggled with, lymphedema, was a constant battle for up to 10 million Americans and 170 million people worldwide,” Ms. Bates said. “This isn’t the first time I am traveling to Washington, D.C. to implore lawmakers to act but, this time, I will be joined by an army of activists for our Lobby Day on May 11. The next day, I look forward to gathering with Walk participants and supporters at the iconic Lincoln Memorial to kick off the first-ever DC/Virginia LymphWalk.”

“All of us at LE&RN are delighted that these events – our Lobby Day on May 11 and the Walk on May 12 – will be led by the passionate and inspiring Kathy Bates,” said William Repicci, LE&RN President & CEO. “These events will draw a national spotlight on diseases that have been neglected for far too long. Everyone who cares about the future of LE (lymphedema) and LD (lymphatic disease) must participate in these events in some way, whether by supporting a team with a donation, calling their Congressional representatives, or raising awareness on social media.”
