DETROIT, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, April 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — NVBDC honors Military and Veteran Service Organizations that have partnered with us to demonstrate a systematic commitment to improving the opportunities for Service-Disabled and Veteran-Owned Businesses (SD/VOBs), their families and their communities. The primary role of NVBDC’s Military and Veteran Organization Task Force (MVO Task Force) is to focus on pursuing and achieving tactical and strategic objectives by partnering with organizations having equal goals to help Veteran Businesses. NVBDC’s MVO Task Force leadership, Keith King, CEO, Brigadier General (ret) Dick Miller and LTC (ret) Kathy Poynton, Director are building the task force to extend the reach and understanding of corporate certification standards for NVBDC programs.

“Our aim is to work with the MSO/VSO’s economic development leaders to identify their Veteran business owner members and provide them with information about NVBDC and the importance of certification, while creating reciprocal business relationships that will enhance our values and directives as a Veteran business support agency.” LTC (ret) Kathy Poynton

NVBDC’s MVO Task Force enables our organization to collaborate resources with our members to increase awareness and join together to establish a respected position in the industry supporting Veteran success in business. We currently have 16 Members and 2 honorary members. We are proud to announce our newest member Coffee Bunker.

The Coffee Bunker is a 501(c)3 organization, Tulsa, OK. It is in its 11th year of operation serving veterans, active military, National Guard, Reservists, and their families. The founder, Mary Ligon, started The Coffee Bunker out of concern for our military and their families after her own 24-year-old son, Cpl. Daniel Y. Ligon, USMC, returned from his second deployment in Fallujah, Iraq. After his honorable discharge, and tragic death on June 10, 2007. Mary’s passion is to redeem the tragedy of Daniel’s devastating death, reaching out to others facing the same silent wounds of war.

The Bunker focuses on five areas of service: place, community, transition services, service to community, and advocacy. As a place, the Bunker provides opportunity for respite, relaxation, and care. It is a place to “set your pack down” and enjoy the safety of home. It provides an option to feelings of isolation or being disconnected. As a community, the Bunker encourages camaraderie, provides connection to resources, peer support, and chaplain services. The Bunker is a Transition Service Center for active duty transitioning out, employed veterans who need to make job changes, student veterans preparing to graduate, and “at risk” veterans who are attempting to meet survival needs. The Bunker is a Serving Center, providing military and veterans opportunities to continue in service to their community. Finally, the Bunker advocates to the community, employers, and government on behalf of veterans’ needs and issues.

“When community leaders around Tulsa Metro area are asked, “What does Tulsa do for veterans?” we want the answer to always be, “The Coffee Bunker.” Everybody needs a bunker.” Said, Michael Horton, EdD, (USAF), Executive Director.

The Coffee Bunker addresses the overall well-being of those in transition to civilian life. Veterans are encouraged to be committed and resilient while they are provided guidance through both professional help and peer support. Those participating in Bunker life can expect support from a veteran peer who has successfully walked the path to civilian life and who is committed to the belief that no veteran should walk the path alone.

Employer Connection

The Coffee Bunker supports employers in their efforts to employ veterans by offering consultations for recruiting, onboarding, developing, and retaining potential military talent and the talent of veterans within their organization. The Bunker facilitates the Employer Alliance for Veterans. Alliance members work collaboratively to ensure timely and meaningful employment for veterans and their spouses.

The European Super League’s Demise: A failure in sports monopolization

With the collapse of the European Super League, football fans everywhere rejoice!

Talks and plans of a European Super League amongst the elite clubs of Europe have collapsed after massive global backlash.

Football is nothing without fans.”

— Sir Matt Busby

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — At the time of writing (Wednesday, April 21st, roughly 10:00am EST), nine of the twelve “founding” clubs slated to join together and form the notorious European Super League have pulled out of the plan completely. All English football clubs (Arsenal, both Manchester teams, Chelsea, and Liverpool), as well as the Milan duo (rivals AC and Inter Milan), and finally Spanish club Atletico Madrid have publicly announced their departure from the ESL. It appears to be only a matter of time before the remaining clubs (Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, and Juventus) also publicly admit defeat and departure as well.

These announcements come in addition to notable club changes and departures at both executive and managerial levels. For example, Manchester United has announced that it’s Executive Vice-Chairman, Ed Woodward, has resigned from his position. Calls from fans and club supporters are also targeting Real Madrid President Florentino Perez, and Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke. At this time, no formal announcements have been made regarding the future of either.

What can be said about the swift demise of the European Super League? First of all, that the opinions of consumers (or fans) truly do matter to these global institutions (soccer clubs). It’s important to look at the ESL fiasco with a financial or business lens because this perspective led to the creation of the ESL to begin with. Ultimately, it appears that the backlash and negative brand associations these clubs were facing would cause more of a financial loss than the new revenues the ESL could recuperate. It would be naive to assume these clubs pulled out because it was the “right thing to do” morally and for the good of the sport.

Let’s take a look at one specific European football giant who decided not to partake in the ESL competition. Paris St. Germain (PSG), the most commercially successful club in France. PSG was bought several years back by Qatar Sports Investments and has received financial injections in order to revitalize the club, make it competitive, attract quality players, and build the PSG brand. It has worked tremendously. PSG currently boasts one of the best sides in all of Europe, has a rapidly growing international fanbase, and has some of the sports largest and rising stars (Neymar, Mbappe, Icardi, etc). PSG is concerned about growing their brand and their reputation as a fashionable and successful club. With more fans comes more attention and more revenue. Had PSG joined the ESL, and received the backlash any of the “founding” clubs received, it would have been as though they took a step five years back. All of the goodwill they have generated amongst fans since their project initially started, would have been for nothing. In fact, PSG’s decision to not participate initially was met with so much positive fan reaction, they are now the favourites to win the current UEFA Champions League (with the other three remaining teams being ESL “founding” clubs).

The European Super League was an attempt for historic clubs to monopolize football’s viewership and secure themselves massive forms of revenue for years to come. Rather than trying to modernize and update themselves, as PSG has done, the 12 “founding” clubs attempted to exclude hundreds (perhaps) thousands of other clubs from their echelon of football. Ultimately, the fan backlash and global uproar caused will leave some consumers upset with the clubs, which may in fact negatively affect revenues (viewership, shirt sales, merchandise) in the short term.

Many fans and critics of the ESL are calling it an attempt to “Americanize” football in Europe. This is not at all far from the truth either. Considering three of the six English clubs involved have American owners (Stan Kroenke of Arsenal, John Henry of Liverpool, and the Glazer family of Manchester United), and the general concept of the league itself being extremely similar to that of American leagues (NFL, NBA, NHL), Europeans are pointing the blame finger at “greedy American investors”. JPMorgan Chase, one of the financial backers for the project, has since received an ethical ranking downgrade from “adequate” to “non-compliant”, truly reflecting the nature of the ESL and how it would have affected consumers and fans of the sport.

It appears fans have won… for now. However, attempts to continue to monetize the sport and maximize financial efficiency for the clubs will always be at the top of the list for their executive teams. Football clubs are no longer simply clubs, but massive organizations and businesses. They employ thousands, outside of the eleven players on the pitch, and can be viewed as economic engines in their subjective regions and cities. In the era of globalization, football clubs are no longer strictly community affairs. Instead they are international brands, and as such they will strive to grow by any means necessary.

‘Sadaqa Project’ is providing 10,000 meals during Ramadan

This pandemic has spotlighted the inequalities that exist across this country, and one of the significant challenges is the need for food security.”

— IDRF’s Chief Executive Officer Mahmood Qasim

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, April 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Thousands of needy people of all backgrounds and faiths in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) are receiving nutritious and delicious meals during Ramadan through a new partnership called the ‘Sadaqa Project”.

Sadaqa is an Arabic word meaning benevolence or charity, and is characterized by the human qualities of goodwill, kindness, and generosity to others.

The Sadaqa Project was founded by Paramount Foods Chief Executive Officer Mohamad Fakih, and is supported by the Tulip Foundation, and IDRF (International Development and Relief Foundation). It is designed to supplement efforts by other organizations to help address food insecurity among the neediest people in the GTA.

Food insecurity for vulnerable populations has been an ongoing issue in the GTA for many years, and it has only been exacerbated by COVID-19.

“This pandemic has spotlighted the inequalities that exist across this country, and one of the significant challenges is the need for food security,” said IDRF’s Chief Executive Officer Mahmood Qasim. “Families living below the poverty line should not have to think about their next meal.”

According to Mr. Fakih, the intent of the Sadaqa Project is to bring together good people across all faiths so that they can do good things together. He added that Ramadan (April 12 to May 12) is a time for Muslims to give back, build bridges and make a difference.

"We are committed to feeding thousands of people in need from all backgrounds during Ramadan, a traditional time in the Muslim calendar for giving,” said Mr. Fakih. “We know there is a tremendous need out there in these difficult times, and we want to help people by providing them with a delicious hot meal."

Food insecurity is also one of the top priorities of the Tulip Foundation.

“We should not accept that in a prosperous country Iike Canada, so many do not have the means to provide good nutritious food for themselves and their families,” said Ali Asaria, the Tulip Foundation’s CEO. “This is a tragic reality, particularly given the hardships of the pandemic year, and we are determined to do our part to help. We hope others will join us and help too."

Fakih and Asaria have committed to donating the first 2,000 meals that the Sadaqa Project will provide. And IDRF has initiated a fundraising campaign for the project that had already raised nearly $21,000 as of April 21.

The meals for the Sadaqa Project are being prepared in collaboration with chef Chris Klugman of Paintbox Bistro. "Providing the best quality of affordable and nutritious food has always been my mandate,” said Mr. Klugman. “Every individual deserves a delicious meal, and we will provide that through this initiative."

Donations, which are eligible for a charitable receipt, can be made on the IDRF website.

About IDRF:
IDRF is a Canadian registered charitable organization dedicated to empowering disadvantaged people in Canada and around the world. Founded in 1984, IDRF has an enviable reputation as one of Canada’s best-run charities and has been recognized by third-party organizations such as the Financial Post and MoneySense for its effectiveness, efficiency, and results.

"Compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes. For direct access to attorney Erik Karst of the KVO law firm please call 800-714-0303.”

— Colorado US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

DENVER, COLORADO, USA, April 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Colorado US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate has endorsed, and they recommend attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO to assist with compensation for a Navy Veteran in Colorado who has developed lung cancer-after decades earlier in the service he had significant exposure to asbestos while serving on a navy ship, submarine, or while their ship or submarine was being repaired at a shipyard. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes. For direct access to attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO please call 800-714-0303. www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Advocate says, "If the person we have described sounds like your husband or dad and his lung cancer was recently diagnosed please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO anytime at 800-714-0303 if his asbestos exposure in the navy occurred in the 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s. As Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO would like to discuss-compensation will depend on how, where and when the person with lung cancer was exposed to asbestos." www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Colorado US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate’s free services are available to people with asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma in Denver, Colorado Springs, Aurora, Fort Collins, Lakewood, Thronton, Pueblo, Greeley or anywhere in Colorado. https://Colorado.USNavyLungCancer.Com

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Colorado include US Navy Veterans, workers at Fort Carson, or Cheyenne Mountain, workers at one of Colorado’s 12 coal fired power plants, miners, manufacturing workers, public utility workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. In most instances, these types of workers were exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303. Most people like this never get compensated-even though the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We are trying to change this sad fact.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware. However, there are people with asbestos exposure lung cancer in Colorado. www.karstvonoiste.com/

The growing applications of cannabis in the medical field is an important driver for the cannabis products market. Cannabis is a drug that comes from Indian hemp plants such as Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica, with THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) being the main active chemical in it. Cannabis has several medical applications in conditions such as nausea and vomiting, glaucoma, epilepsy, asthma. Hence, many countries have legalized the use of cannabis for medical applications despite it being a psychoactive drug. Medical applications of cannabis include treating cancer, chronic pain, depression, arthritis, diabetes, glaucoma, migraines, epilepsy, AIDS, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. According to Harvard Health, around 85% of Americans supported legalizing medical marijuana, and at least several million Americans were using it.

The cannabis products market consists of sales of cannabis products and related services. Cannabis is a psychoactive drug which is obtained from the cannabis plant of the cannabaceae family. Cannabis can be used for the treatment of various diseases such as chronic pain, cancer pain, depression, anxiety disorders, sleep disturbances and neurological disorders.

The cannabis infused products market covered in this report is segmented by product type into flower, concentrates, others. The cannabis products market is also segmented by usage into medical, recreational, by compound into THC-dominant, CBD-dominant, balanced THC & CBD, and by route of administration into oral solutions and capsules, smoking, vaporizers, topicals, others.

Read More On The Global Cannabis Products Market Report:
https://www.thebusinessresearchcompany.com/report/cannabis-products-global-market-report

The global cannabis products market size is expected to grow from $16.51 billion in 2020 to $18.37 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.3%. The cannabis market growth is mainly due to the companies resuming their operations and adapting to the new normal while recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The cannabis products market is expected to reach $46.19 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 25.9%.

Major players in the cannabis industry are Canopy Growth Corporation, Aphria Inc., Aurora Cannabis, Cara Therapeutics and GW Pharmaceuticals PLC.

North Carolina U.S. CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE NC-5 BO HINES Signs Term Limit Pledge to Serve only 3 Terms in the House

North Carolina U.S. CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE NC-5 BO HINES Signs Term Limit Pledge to Serve only 3 Terms in the House

Bo’s pledge to support and abide by term limits echoes a growing cry in the America First movement for an end to entrenched politicians who continue to enrich themselves and do not deliver .”

— Bo Hines , Campagin Manager Karl Notturno

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, April 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — U.S. CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE BO HINES, www.bo4nc.com, NC-5, signed the US Term Limits Amendment Pledge to serve no more than 3 terms in the House and 2 terms in the Senate.

BO HINES Campaign Manager Karl Notturno said “Bo’s pledge to support and abide by term limits echoes a growing cry in the America First movement for an end to entrenched politicians who continue to enrich themselves on the back of the American taxpayer while failing to deliver for their constituents. We can no longer afford to reelect stagnant and complacent politicians who languish in Washington for decades by simply voting along party lines. We need leaders who are goals oriented and who work to accomplish their constituents’ agendas quickly and effectively.”

Bo Hines’ Statement on Biden’s Gun Control Executive Order.
I strongly oppose the Biden administration’s executive action banning “ghost guns” and his calls for legislative changes to ban assault rifles and high-capacity gun magazines.
The Biden administration claims that these executive actions will solve a so-called “public health crisis” of gun violence. They will not. This is just another underhanded attempt by far-left Democrats to take away our fundamental constitutional rights.
I will never compromise on Americans’ right to bear arms. This is a fundamental right that allows us to protect ourselves, our families, and our property. Just as importantly, it allows us to protect all of our other rights from a tyrannical government.
Bo Hines’ Statement on Vaccine Passports
We strongly support the proposed legislation by the Ohio House of Representatives to combat recent attempts by Democrats to require so-called “vaccine passports.”
The Democrats’ efforts to implement vaccine passports would give the government and big tech companies unprecedented access to personal information. These policies would set the stage for draconian and tyrannical travel restrictions that we have seen in many failed socialist states.
We must continue to fight these policies at the state and federal levels to ensure that we do not devolve into a “show your papers” state.

In less than two weeks, his launch video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnw0fmB9rX0
received more than 200,000 views and in less than half a quarter of fundraising, his campaign amassed nearly a quarter of a million dollars, with an overwhelming majority of those donations coming from the state of North Carolina, sending a signal that BO HINES is the clear choice for congress for the 5th district, a major message to everyone that the 5th district of NC is ready for the positive change Bo Hines will bring to his district, state, and country.

Who is BO HINES? Hines was a freshman All-American wide receiver at NC State before he transferred to Yale, where he graduated with a degree in Political Science. He worked in multiple congressional, gubernatorial, and state offices and is finishing his law degree at Wake Forest as he campaigns full time.

Hines said, “We are running a positive, heavily grassroots, America First campaign focused on developing relationships with constituents across the district, getting them excited about what we can do politically, and refurbishing the Republican party in our state.”

Hines said, “We want to meet every single voter and let them know they can reach out to us at any time.”

Bo Hines for Congress Campaign Manager, Karl Notturno, said “Bo is very responsive. Bo has gotten on the phone with a constituent within 32 seconds of the moment they signed up on our website. The average time isn’t that far off. We always want to meet with constituents in person and we will typically drive to meet them.”

Notturno also stated, “Bo believes politics has been far too divisive over the past two decades and that most Americans want great jobs, free speech, good healthcare, quality schools, safe streets, term limits, and honest leaders. Bo will never waver on his values.”

Hines stated, “We believe that the Republican party has been losing the narrative battle for decades, especially among the youth. We are the party of opportunity, growth, and life. We want people to succeed and communities to flourish. If we want to succeed, we must focus on promoting our positive vision of society in line with our values. This will sell far better than divisive fringe issues. It is easy to say what you’re against. It is far more constructive to say what you’re for.”

Hines believes, “Our country has great potential, but we have squandered it for too long. President Trump was a step in the right direction, but we must build momentum on his America First agenda to ensure that we can leave our children the future that we want. Establishment politicians have failed to produce real change. We are results oriented. We must be. Our futures and our children’s futures are at stake.”

Hines is engaged to Mary Charles. They will be married this July.

Hines has strong opinions on policy including the following positions:

Economy — We must leverage the power of capitalism to create an economy that serves the American people by protecting American jobs and businesses. Our “America First” trade policies and economic regulations should incentivize investment in our country and our citizens while discouraging offshoring and corporate inversions.

Infrastructure — The 5th district has fallen behind in infrastructure. We must invest to ensure the entire district has access to high-speed internet and quality cell service, to be able to participate in and benefit from our changing digital economy. We must also improve our power grid to keep energy costs low, especially in rural regions.

Healthcare — We must simplify access to quality affordable healthcare and remove many of the needless bureaucracies introduced by ObamaCare. The government should not run healthcare. Government should incentivize market competition to provide affordable and accessible healthcare for all Americans, work to keep premiums and deductibles low, and free the industry from inept government policies.
