The defense law firm of Halscott Megaro PA announced that attorney Patrick Megaro has won a Post-Conviction Relief Petition for his client Altariq Coursey.

Halscott Megaro PA (N/A:N/A)

[Defendant's] prior attorney committed several … errors, that had they been corrected at the time of the trial … the result of the proceeding [likely] would have been different.”

— Patrick Megaro, Criminal Defense Attorney

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2018 / — The criminal defense law firm of Halscott Megaro PA announced that attorney Patrick Megaro has won a Post-Conviction Relief Petition for his client Altariq Coursey. Mr. Coursey was charged on September 24, 2012, by an Essex County grand jury and was convicted after a jury trial and sentenced to 22 years with 11 of those years’ ineligibility for parole.

Once Mr. Coursey was sentenced, Patrick Megaro, Esq. field an appeal on his client’s behalf. However, the New Jersey Appellate Division affirmed the conviction, but noted that Mr. Coursey could challenge his conviction with a Petition for Post-Conviction Relief on the grounds of ineffective assistance of counsel.

Mr. Megaro filed a Petition for Post-Conviction Relief in the Essex County Superior Court in 2016. Mr. Megaro reviewed the case and stated “Mr. Coursey’s prior attorney committed several unprofessional errors, that had they been corrected at the time of the trial there is reasonable probability, that the result of the proceeding would have been different.”

On June 4, 2016, the Essex County Superior Court granted post-conviction relief, and ordered the State to give Altariq Coursey a new trial, tossing out his convictions.

Mr. Megaro went on to add, “we are very pleased with the decision from the Superior Court of New Jersey. They considered our petition for Post-Conviction Relief and it was GRANTED."

The term Post-Conviction Relief refers to a law or court rule that allows a collateral challenge to a judgment of conviction which has otherwise become final in the normal appellate review process. Post-conviction relief is governed by federal and state laws, which vary by state, and may be used to preclude state or federal habeas corpus.

Attorney Patrick Megaro received both his Bachelor's Degree and Law Degree from Hofstra University. He is also the recipient of the Leon Stern Award (2002). Mr. Megaro has had several articles published and has made numerous appearances on national media such as the “Today Show” and “Happening Now” on the Fox News Channel. – The underlying case can be found at A press release from the Essex County, New Jersey, Prosecutor's Office can be found at

Home Care Expert Explains Ways to Communicate with Dementia Patients Easily

Comfort Keepers Philadelphia, PA..

Philadelphia Caregivers

Michele Berman of Comfort Keepers of Philadelphia, an award-winning home care agency, gives tips on how to communicate with those who suffer from dementia.

Dementia is a multi-natured disease that affects millions all over the world. Dementia also can diminish a person’s communication skills.”

— Michele Berman, Owner

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2018 / — Dementia is a multi-natured disease that affects millions all over the world. Dementia embodies a group of symptoms that affect memory, thinking, and social abilities severely enough to interfere with daily life and functioning.

Problems with Dementia begin with at least two different brain functions, such as memory loss and impaired judgment. This could also include the inability to perform daily activities such as cooking or paying bills. Dementia also can diminish a person’s communication skills gradually.

Difficulty with Communication: Look for Clues

When looking for changes in communication skills, look for ones that are aligned with the symptoms of Dementia. Examples of symptoms of Dementia are:
-Use familiar words often
-Inventing new words to describe everyday things
-Losing train of thought often
-Reverting to a native language
-Having difficulty organizing concepts in a logical way
-Speaking less often

Communication During the Different Stages of Alzheimer’s and Dementia:

What to Expect:
In the mild and early stages of Dementia, an individual is still able to engage in daily dialogue, deep conversations, and social activities. However, the person may unknowingly repeat stories, have difficulty finding the correct word, or feel overwhelmed by excessive verbal stimulation.

The middle stage is usually the longest and can last for several years. As the disease progresses, the person will have greater difficulty communicating and will require a lot of direct care.

The severe stage can last several weeks to several months. As the disease advances, the person may rely on nonverbal communication. This could be through eye contact or body language. Around-the-clock care is usually required at this juncture.

The Best Ways to Communicate:
Dealing with Dementia is a struggle. People that have Dementia usually have more difficulty expressing thoughts and emotions than a person without Dementia.

Here are some ways on how to help you be successful in communicating with Dementia Patients:

Before You Speak:
-Stay composed. Take a moment to calm yourself before engaging in a conversation.
-Remain focused. Consider what you are going to talk about and stick to that topic. Try always to be positive. Show your positivity in your voice and body language.
-Be the primary focus. Make sure you grab the person’s full attention, and that they can see you clearly. Try to maintain consistent eye contact and remain at their eye level.
-Minimize distractions. Turn off the TV or radio to reduce background noise.
-Match your body language to your words. Make sure that your body language/facial expressions match with what you are saying.
-Never stand too close. Instead, respect the person’s personal space, for this could be intimidating. Allow the person to feel as though they are in control of the situation.
-Use physical contact. Show that you care by holding the individual’s hand or putting your arm around him or her.

How to Speak Correctly:
-Make sure you Speak calmly and clearly. Be aware of how fast you are talking and your clarity in words. Be sure to use a gentle and relaxed tone. A lower pitch is better to use since it is seen as more calming.
-Speak at a slower pace (slightly). Allow time in between sentences for the person to process the information and to respond at their own pace.
-Include the person in conversations with others. This will reduce feelings of exclusion and isolation.
-Avoid confusing and vague statements. If you tell the person to “hop in the shower,” he or she may take your instructions literally. Describe the action in a more direct way to make your directions more clear: “Please come here. Your shower is ready.” Instead of using unclear antecedents such as “it” or “that,” name the object or place directly. Rather than “Here it is,” say “Your coat is right here.”
-Repeat questions or information as necessary. If the person does not respond quickly, wait a moment for them to think. Then ask the person one more time.
-Turn your questions into answers. Provide the patient with the solution rather than an open question. For example, say “Your lunch is right here,” instead of asking, “Are you ready for your lunch?”
-Turn negative things into positive things. Instead of saying, “Don’t go there,” say, “Let’s go here.”
-Try to laugh with them about mistakes and confusions. Humor and fun can bring you closer together with the person and relieve any tensions.

What to Say to the Patient:
-Clearly Identify Yourself. Advance the conversation from a frontal view and maintain good eye contact.
-Call the person by name. It helps keep the person in reality and grabs their attention.
-Use short, simple words and sentences. Lengthy stories or requests can be overwhelming.
-Offer a guess. If the person can’t find the correct word to use or uses the wrong word, try helping them guess the right one.
-Avoid asking too many direct questions. People with dementia often become frustrated if they can’t find the answer. If you have to, ask questions, ask only one question at a time and put them in a way that allows for only a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.
-Try not to ask the person to make difficult decisions. Try always to give the person a choice. Too many options can be frustrating.
-Avoid criticizing or correcting. Don’t discourage the person’s effort by telling them that they are incorrect. Instead, try to understand what they are trying to say, and encourage him or her to always correspond their thoughts.
-Avoid arguing. If the person says something you don’t necessarily agree with, try to let it go. Fighting makes things worse. It will also heighten the level of agitation for the person dealing with dementia.

How to Listen:
-Always try to Listen attentively to what the person is trying to communicate.
-Try to be caring and supportive. The person may need more time to process thoughts in conversation. Let the person know you are listening to them.
-Pay attention to hints. If the individual has difficulty finding the right word to use or finishing a sentence, maybe ask them to try to finish it in a different way.
-Remain sympathetic while listening. If the individual is feeling unhappy, let them express their feelings without dismissing them right away. This will show that how much you care.
-After listening, get confirmation. When you have not fully understood what they are saying, tell the person what you have comprehended and make sure you are correct. You may have to repeat yourself to clarify.
-Always use the best judgment. Some people will not remember personal things, such as medical history, family, or friends. You will need to and act appropriately in these situations. For example, they may say that they have just showered when you know they haven’t yet.

Always Keep Corresponding, and Be Respectful:
Remember to always treat a Dementia patient with respect and dignity. Don’t talk about them as if they are not there, or speak to them as you would to a young child. Remaining patient is crucial.

Always offer them ongoing comfort and reassurance, too. If he or she is having trouble communicating, let the person know that it is alright. Try to give support to the person to continue to explain his or her thoughts, no matter what.

Comfort Keepers provides exceptional dementia care and many other services for you or your loved one. Our caregivers are locally based and well trained to help any situation. To contact one of our caregivers call (877) 698-9394.

Crock Pot Meal Delivery Service Provides Healthy Alternative to Processed Foods

What a Crock Meals To Go Logo

What a Crock Meals to Go is the next big meal kit delivery service. Eliminating processed foods, this company is starting to change the meal delivery landscape.

Chemically processed foods are made solely from refined ingredients and artificial substances. Our crock pot creations are made fresh and then frozen immediately–serving a healthy alternative.”

— Brieanna West, Founder

BROOKHAVEN, PA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2018 / — What a Crock Meals to Go™ announces that they are only to provide fresh meals as opposed to processed ones, targeting the entrenched meal delivery service providers like Blue Apron, LLC and Hello Fresh™. This small startup has big ambitions. Using personal funds for capital, this 5-year-old business which started in a home is poised to take on the industry leaders in delivering high-quality foods to people that have limited time or that just do not want to cook after a long day at work.

What a Crock Meals to Go™ which started as a mom-and-pop business now delivers anywhere in the United States. Shipping and packaging contracts are in place so that no matter where you are in the country you can receive high-quality crockpot meals designed to be nutritious and make your life easier.

What a Crock Meals to Go™ provides their customers with not only delicious, healthy foods but meals that taste great. Using an entirely different business model, What a Crock Meals to Go™ has made it even easier to get home and sit down to eat a great meal, without the having to worry about if that meal is nutritious enough.

We all love processed foods; most of us were raised on them because we had working parents. If you had to give up processed foods, could you do it? Could you even name one? Processed foods include cereals, cheese, canned vegetables, packaged meats (e.g., ham) and chips. They are bad for us because they contain artificial ingredients (e.g., preservatives), high-fructose corn syrup and sugar. They are one of the main causes of obesity in the U.S. because they are made to be over consumed (e.g., family-size), low in fiber and nutrients and contain trans-fats. Not to mention they contain GMOs – genetically modified organisms. Examples of GMOs include sucrose, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and sweeteners. At What a Crock, our crockpot meals are made from pure, natural ingredients, which you can pronounce.

Another excellent example of processed foods is microwavable meals. They are quick to make and come in a variety of flavors, including ones that are “healthy” choices. However, did you ever the label on them? They are loaded with sodium, which prolongs their shelf-life. Also, some of the diet bars are low on carbs but high in sugar or artificial ingredients. Our healthy crockpot meals offer different portion sizes, which helps you control servings. The leftovers are just as good!

We created portions that are right for you and your family, whether you have a light or heavy appetite. All of our crockpot creations fit any budget and planning meals is easy. You can arrange to have healthy crockpot meals for the week, delivered to your door or you can pick them up. In standard meals, it’s easy to choose the pre-made ones due to time and budget. Even the sauces and salad dressings contain harmful ingredients, not to mention the dyes that are added to them. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to eat food containing red dye #40.

Crockpot Meals – a Healthy Alternative

Aside from being easy to make, our healthy crockpot meals on a budget are a lifestyle choice to help you and your family get on a better nutritious track. We have real chefs hand-pick the ingredients for each meal. They do the hard work of trimming, browning, dicing, slicing, measuring, crafting sauces, and more!

You just pop the bag into your crockpot, setting the temperature and time and go. Our chefs put the ingredients together for a meal (per portion) and then vacuum seal them into a pouch. The pouch is then immediately frozen. You get the meal within 24 hours of being frozen – the freshness is guaranteed. We feel it’s worth it to give our customers the very best homemade meal, instead of hitting the drive-thru or ordering take out. And the meals come with easy-to-read instruction card.

You can also feel good about the fact that we are a family-owned and operated company. The only thing we have in common with the big food manufacturers is that we save you time. Time out of the kitchen and sitting down at the table to enjoy a wholesome meal with your family. You can order online or stop in one of our locations. We love meeting our customers and answering any questions.

Slow Cooker Meals in Delaware County

SFTC compilation curator Suzanne Doucet at MIDEM 2018, where she will share the compilation with international labels and distributors.

The Sounds from the Circle liner notes share album art, music titles and website URL for each artist.

The annual series offers a wide range of new music from 40+ artists including Peter Kater, SEAY, Steven Halpern, Darlene Koldenhoven, Liquid Mind, and FLOW.

This year's compilation is very ethereal, designed to provide an overall calming and healing effect…In a world of so much chaos and confusion, we are all trying to find inner peace.”

— Suzanne Doucet

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2018 / — Celebrating a decade of curation and collaboration, New Age Music Circle founder Suzanne Doucet announces the worldwide release of that online community's annual compilation: Sounds from the Circle X – 2018, available now via participating artists and online playlists. With this tenth volume, approximately 38 hours of music are presented across the series' ten compilations, all curated from members of the New Age Music Circle (

Each volume takes on a unique vibe, says Doucet, with the music often capturing or diffusing what is going on in the world around us. "This year's compilation is very ethereal, designed to provide an overall calming and healing effect," Doucet says, adding, "In a world of so much chaos and confusion we are all trying to find inner peace."

This promotional effort began as a project to unite and promote the New Age music community and has evolved into the leading annual series supporting the ever-growing number of New Age musicians interested in making relaxing, conscious and transformational music. The Sounds of the Circle compilations are always eclectic, showcasing the wide range of inspiration, interpretation and musical vision within the New Age genre from countries across the globe including France, Norway, New Zealand, South Korea, India, Canada, Australia, England, South Africa, Finland, Ireland, Brazil, Germany, the U.S. and more.

This year's sampling reads like a "who's who" of top New Age Musicians: Neil Tatar, Steven Halpern, SEAY, Peter Kater, Merrill Collins, Sangeeta Kaur, Bernward Koch, Anaya Music, FLOW (Fiona Joy Hawkins, Will Ackerman, Lawrence Blatt, Jeff Oster), Mark Dunn, Darlene Koldenhoven, Louis Colaiannia, Nouveau Papillon, Pamela Jamian, Michael Hoppe, Tajalli, Megan Chaskey, Christaal, The Haiku Project, Suzanne Doucet, Rachel LaFond, Kathy Mathes, Mark Freshwater, Cecilie, Paul Adams, David Hoffman, Elizabeth Geyer, Jennifer DeFrayne, Kevin Wood, Byron Metcalf, Jennifer Grais, John Luttrell, Margie Balter, Mitzi Schwarz, Michael Diamond, Sensitive Heart, Brooks & Day, Alan Storeygard, Paradiso & Rasamayi, Natascha Wilczek, Lia Scallon, Peter Calandra, and Liquid Mind. 

Commenting on the Sounds from the Circle, BT Fasmer, founder of NewAgeMusic.Guide and New Age Stars Radio says, "There’s so much talent out there! We are lucky to have all these fine artists in our genre."

Today's New Age "umbrella" is vast, often marketed as Relaxation, Meditation, Spa and Yoga music; sub-genres on the compilation include Mystical, Chill, Ambient, Meditative, Vocals, Nature, Trance, World, Solo Piano, Space, Electronic, and Piano w/Instrumental. The compilation's social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram), informative liner notes, and online playlists provide links and myriad ways to discover new music and follow artists.

While New Age has always had a dedicated fanbase, the genre has seen a recent rise in popularity among Millennials, producers, and DJs; younger generations are finding respite in this quieter alternative music, as noted in the New York Times article "For New Age, the Next Generation" and in a FACT Magazine interview with LA producer Matthewdavid stating, "While enduring a period of depression, he found that listening to new age had a therapeutic effect; ‘Planetary Unfolding’, a grandiose cosmic symphony released by American composer Michael Stearns in 1981, was a particularly significant discovery: 'That record saved my life.'"

The promotional CD is sent to radio programmers for airplay and giveaways; previous volumes of SFTC appeared on New Age Music Odyssey, New Age Stars, New Age Universe, and were chosen as “Album of the Year” by Reviews New Age and New Age World Music. International radio programs such as Radio Despi’s La Otra Orilla in Spain and Radio Plenitude in France have dedicated entire programs to playing the collection from start to finish. The compilations also provide programmers an excellent way to fill 3-4 hours of airtime during vacations or the inevitable sick day. Requests for airplay & giveaway copies are welcome via email to bethhilton(at)theBcompany(dot)com;

Sounds from the Circle X is available from the New Age Music Circle and participating artists as a physical MP3 CD, and is also duplicated as online playlists in Spotify and iTunes.

Wells of Life and Buganda Kingdom Forge Partnership to Provide Clean Water to Rural Uganda

Water Well Celebrates Engagement of Model Keleigh Sperry to Actor Miles Teller

We welcome the timely intervention to combat many health challenges in Uganda resulting from a shortage of clean water.”

— The Honorable Charles Peter Mayiga

UGANDA, AFRICA, June 29, 2018 / — Leaders from the Southern California-based nonprofit Wells of Life made a historic trip to Uganda earlier this spring resulting in an official partnership between Wells of Life and the Ugandan government.

A meeting with The Honorable Charles Peter Mayiga, Prime Minister (Katikiro) of the Buganda Kingdom, solidified an ongoing arrangement with Wells of Life to provide water wells for villagers in the Kingdom of Buganda, the largest traditional kingdom in present day Uganda.

During the trip, Wells of Life advisory board member and businessman Rand Sperry arranged for a surprise wedding engagement gift for his daughter, model Keleigh Sperry to actor Miles Teller (Fantastic Four, War Dogs, Bleed for This). Over 400 children and parents gathered at a primary school to celebrate the presentation of the well by performing a play and a special song written for Keleigh.

Here's Keleigh's journey to Uganda last spring

Other developments from the trip included the Prime Minister’s acceptance as an advisory board member of the Wells of Life board of directors. Upon the appointment he said, “We welcome the timely intervention to combat many health challenges in Uganda resulting from a shortage of clean water.”

To date, Wells of Life has funded and drilled 376 water wells. The focus for the last two years was in the Mubende and Mitiyana districts of Uganda. Each well provides clean water to 1000 villagers for up to 25 years and organizers aim to fund 1,000 water wells over a ten year period.

Wells of Life founder and executive director Nick Jordan and Keleigh Sperry gave emotional testimonies during the meeting with the Prime Minister while Sperry also agreed to become a Wells of Life Ambassador.

Wells of Life is based on the premise that water is a basic human right and clean water saves lives. Water wells also relieve the tremendous daily burden on women and girls to collect water.

The meeting also solidified the purchase of land for a Wells of Life Training and Visitor Center. Coordinated by Wells of Life Advisory Board Member Fr. Max Ssekiwala, as non-residents cannot purchase land in Uganda, the arrangement includes a 99-year lease with Wells of Life deemed beneficiary of the two-acre site.

New Alliance Seeks to Promote Health and Prevent Illness by Addressing Social Determinants of Health

Non-medical determinants of health are thought to account for up to 60 percent of health outcomes

The Alliance will lead to healthier communities and will also have a positive impact in slowing the rise of healthcare costs.”

— Mikelle Moore, Intermountain Senior Vice President, Community Health

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, June 29, 2018 / — A new collaborative called the Utah Alliance for the Determinants of Health (the Alliance) has been formed to promote health, improve health care access, and decrease health care costs. The Alliance—a collaboration in Ogden, Utah, and St. George, Utah, led by Intermountain Healthcare involving city, county, and state government agencies and other community based organizations—seeks to improve health by focusing on non-medical factors that affect health, such as housing instability, utility needs, food insecurity, interpersonal violence, and transportation. The collaborative will begin with two demonstration programs in Ogden and St. George.

Americans have shorter lifespans and fare worse on many health indicators despite our expending double the per-capita average of our industrialized peers in other countries. To effectively care for Americans with complex medical conditions, it is often best to simultaneously address medical treatment along with what are commonly called the social determinants of health. These non-medical determinants of health are thought to account for up to 60 percent of health outcomes.

Addressing these non-medical health drivers requires innovative, comprehensive, and collaborative solutions from the public and private sectors. The goal of the Utah Alliance for the Determinants of Health is to achieve healthier communities, lower healthcare costs, and be a model for positive changes that other areas of the U.S. can replicate. The work will begin in Ogden and St. George with SelectHealth Medicaid members with an intent to eventually initiate similar work throughout Utah with other patients.

Intermountain will provide funding to support the Alliance’s initial demonstration programs in Ogden and St. George for three years subject to applicable regulations. These communities were selected based on the needs of the communities, opportunities to partner with other organizations and agencies, as well as on other factors such as available social services. The initial demonstration will work with SelectHealth Medicaid members in four ZIP codes: 84401 and 84403 in Ogden and 84770 and 84790 in St. George. Alliance program services will be available to qualifying persons without regard to their choice of healthcare providers. Upon the completion of the demonstration, the program will be evaluated for expansion to other populations and geographic areas.

The Alliance is designed within the Accountable Health Communities model designed by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This approach will include screening SelectHealth members for social needs and assisting with coordination of those needs. It will also include working with community partners to ensure that services are aligned with the needs of community members.

Intermountain will be investing $12 million over three years—$2 million annually in both Ogden and St. George—which will sustain the three-year demonstration project. Intermountain’s initial funding for this demonstration will be used to bolster the impact of numerous pre-existing programs currently led by community partners. The addition of funds will enable Intermountain and community partners to gain efficiencies in coordinating care and other services that will reduce total spending. In addition, Zions Bank has made a generous donation of $100,000 to support the work of the Alliance.

“We are very excited to work with our local and statewide partners in this innovative Alliance,” said . “By working together in new ways to promote health, we expect to make a real difference in the lives of the people in these programs. The Alliance will lead to healthier communities and will also have a positive impact in slowing the rise of healthcare costs.”

“Addressing social determinants of health increasingly plays a vital role as the country transitions to value and holistic-based health care. Leavitt Partners is pleased to leverage our expertise regarding social determinants of health, health care transformation, and alliances to provide instrumental advisory and strategic support to Intermountain and the Alliance on this initiative,” said Andrew Croshaw, CEO of Leavitt Partners.
