SAN MARCOS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every once in while, you stumble on something that feels really right. A connection, a space to be, or maybe a necklace that becomes your signature style. You might just find that kind of something at Amy Friend Jewelry if you are all about heart-filled meaning & uniquely elegant expression.

I’m Amy Friend, the heart & hands behind the designs. All I’ve ever wanted to do in life is quietly stir up the magical positive energy of the women around me. The kind of energy & synergy that gets us all connected + confidently charged. Each piece I create has a subtle intention, a soft tap on the shoulder that takes you back to where you want to be in thought & connection. Some customers call them talismans. I like to say they are love notes. Graceful love notes to & from your soul.

Customers always say it best:

"This necklace feels like it is in harmony with nature and with the body. What I like about this piece is its simplicity and its artisan quality rather than impersonal mass production. This necklace is nice with a variety of looks (relaxed, dressy). It’s wonderful to have something so well crafted…Beautiful work! And a bonus to such great work is that customer service always has been top notch." ~ Kelly (Raindancer Necklace)

"You do such connected, speaks to your soul, jewelry." – Amber

"A favorite jewelry designer of mine, Amy Friend does it again. Such a simple piece but a perfect statement that goes with literally anything." – Andrea Whitt @bohobunnie

"I just love the way my lariat necklace moves and changes as I wear it." – Kay

"Everything is SO beautiful.The quality is incredible – the attention to detail, the gentle strength, I am absolutely blown away! I feel like your jewelry embodies the light in which I see myself – this is definitely some of the most powerful and feminine jewelry I own. If ever there was flirtatious jewelry, this is it." – Julia

"These earrings are simply gorgeous. I’m sitting in a coffee shop right now with my new earrings on, and, I have to say – something about them makes me feel like a goddess. I love them so much." – Julie

Igniting a Spark in the Children of the Solomon Islands

Empowering young men and women, many of whom never knew they had the right to education or the freedom to pursue their dreams.

Empowering young men and women, many of whom never knew they had the right to education or the freedom to pursue their dreams.

Although the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted 70 years ago, it meant little to the youth in this village in the Solomon Islands until now.

Although the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted 70 years ago, it meant little to the youth in this village in the Solomon Islands until now.

They now see it is up to them to demand their own rights and the rights of others

They now see it is up to them to demand their own rights and the rights of others

Human rights education empowered a group of young men and women as they learned of the 30 rights of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — One look at the faces of the children attending the Youth for Human Rights seminar at a primary school in the village of Sahalu in the Solomon Islands showed that learning they had rights was a revelation.

“They need to know their rights,” said one of the teachers. “In some parts of the provinces, parents tell their daughters not to go to school. Just stay at home and do housework. Some girls are even sold to the loggers to marry when they are as young as 12. Some girls are told school is for boys only.” He wants to incorporate the Youth for Human Rights education program in his health lessons and make sure all students learn their rights.

Violence against women in the Solomon Islands is also widespread. According to a 2011 World Health Organization report, more than 50 percent of women in the Solomon Islands experienced sexual violence by a partner at some point in their lives.

“I didn’t even know these 30 Human Rights existed,” admitted one teacher.

Another said the lecture was “eye-opening” and vital “because the concept of 30 Human Rights is important for the wellbeing of a child.”

Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is the youth component of United for Human Rights(UHR). It is a global nonprofit organization founded in 2001 with the purpose to inspire youth to become advocates for tolerance and peace by educating them on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. UHR has now grown into a global movement with over 150 chapters and its educational materials are translated into 27 languages, bringing the message of human rights to 195 nations.

The Youth for Human Rights public service announcements and The Story of Human Rights educational film air on the Scientology Network in 17 languages and on hundreds of other television stations around the world.

The Church of Scientology and Scientologists support United for Human Rights and make their educational materials available free of charge. For more information visit the Scientology website or Scientology.tv.

NEW COALITION UNITES CARIBBEAN AND WORLD TOWARDS PEACE

Nigerian and South African Embassies working with HWPL to spread a culture of peace

MOUs being signed by Ambassadors in Washington D.C. to join efforts with DC HWPL for the work of peace

CCLP and HWPL are working on a memorandum of understanding to form a partnership to support the DPCW.

Moving forward, our focus must be collaboration.”

— Daniel Hayden

WASHINGTON D.C., UNITED STATES, August 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — More than 300 community members and 30 ambassadors, former Caribbean heads of state and civil society organizations from the Caribbean Basin, Latin America, Africa, and the United States came together to announce the official launch of the new Coalition for Caribbean Leaders for Peace (CCLP) in Washington D.C. on August 27.

The CCLP seeks to improve regional unrest by (1) promoting peaceful coexistence amongst fraction groups in Latin America and the Caribbean through peace education programs, and (2) advancing the implementation of international peace law that further reinforces principles of peacebuilding based on the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).
The DPCW is a legal framework for spreading a culture of peace on a local, national, and international level. The DPCW, which serves as the solution for worldwide peace and conflict resolution, has already been enacted as a National Declaration in several countries around the world; including Antigua and Barbuda, Seychelles and eSwatini, and international organizations such as the Central American Parliament. The goal is for the law to be presented as an international resolution through the United Nations.
“As we celebrate the Caribbean as a peaceful zone, we should consider how their efforts towards peace can serve as a model worldwide,” says program emcee Joy Mala. “Let’s reflect on how each of us gathered here can contribute to the work of peace…ultimately, the DPCW is the answer to sustainable peace.”
Coalition members include the Honorable Said Musa, Former Prime Minister of Belize; The Honorable Tillman Thomas, Former Prime Minister of Grenada; The Honorable Samuel Hinds, Former President of Guyana; The Honorable Owen Arthur, Former Prime Minister of Barbados; and The Honorable Basdeo Panday, Former Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago.
“Together in cooperation with civil society, we will be able to spread a culture of peace throughout the global community,” says Panday.
The event was hosted by CCLP affiliate, Heavenly Culture, World Peace and Restoration of Light (HWPL), a United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) registered peace non-profit organization.
“The Coalition started because we were dissatisfied with leaders who jeopardize our future by failing to work together to address mutual problems,” says Daniel Hayden, Director of HWPL D.C.
“Moving forward, our focus must be collaboration.”
CCLP and HWPL are working on a memorandum of understanding to form a partnership to support the DPCW.

Artistic Director's riff on "Newark, Italy & me." (Lulu ) for Daniel P Quinn

Newark, Italy and me

Artistic Director's riff on "Newark, Italy & me." (Lulu ) for 2019

RAHWAY, NJ, USA, August 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — "Daniel P Quinn has captured a bygone era with such detailed, loving, bittersweet accuracy.
Such family memories – and they are rich indeed, considering he hails from two such vibrant, singularly civilized cultures …
Irish- and Italian-American; no fooling around! The old Newark comes alive in his poignant, celebrating words …
as does the glory that was Paterson, NJ, birthplace of American industry …
— Hey, it/they – still is/are, both these wonderful, bustling, BUSY New Jersey cities! eh, all? in their 20th century heydays …

Phoenixes now rising from the strong, struggling and WONDERFULLY PERSEVERING "ashes …"?
– Nope; the people of Newark since the "White Flight," post-WWII,
are every bit as validly vibrant as those who came before, let's face it, eh?
— It's just a rapidly e'er changing mixture of eras we are so challenged to be negotiating,
we Americans and we globally over-populated, fascinating yet always goofy-enough humans …

Bravo to all who appreciate the seemingly boundless energy, spirit and enterprise that is Newark.

Thank you, Mr. Quinn, for bringing the pre-21st century Newark once again to such sweet, happy life … a rewarding, compelling, intensely-personally-felt trip down Memory Lane, indeed".

V. Hammer, Artistic Director
Midlantic Theatre Company

San Francisco Bay Area author, speaker, and former beauty queen to appear Thursday, September 5, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. EST

DETROIT, MI, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — California Author, Speaker, and Former Beauty Queen, Sheila Anthony Shaw will appear on the Josi's Inspiration Radio Network Show Thursday, September 5, 2019 at 6:00 p.m EST/5:00 p.m CST/3:00 p.m PST., her publicist announced today.

The episode will air on https://www.blogtalkradio.com/josiinspiration/2019/09/05/josis-inspiration–thursday
The show is hosted and executively produced by literary and lifestyle talk show host, Jahzara.
The interview is part of the host's "Awesomely Amazing" segment.

“The memoir is being enjoyed by youth as young as 14-years-old. It's a highly-inspirational journey,” stated Fran Briggs, Publicist to Sheila Anthony Shaw. "Listeners of the show will be awed by her struggles, victories, and resiliency. And, they'll be encouraged to recalibrate what they believe is possible for their life. This story illustrates that we all have the ability to do just about anything."

The 1980 Miss Fresno California Beauty Queen is the author of “The Sheila Anthony Shaw Story: A Memoir.”

Her memoir chronicles the author's humble beginnings of moving from Texas to California with her mother and siblings when she was three years old. It covers death-defying events, as well as significant and life transforming accomplishments intended to challenge, educate, and inspire others.

In her book, Sheila Anthony Shaw describes her year as Miss Fresno County’s beauty queen; being slighted by the love of her life days after losing their unborn child; a heartless doctor who rather remove her reproduction organs than address her ruptured appendix, and driving alone across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, then suddenly not being able to use the gas, or brake pedals.

ITALIAN AMERICAN ONE VOICE COALITION DEBUTS LABOR DAY VIDEO IN NEW EDITION OF “The ONE VOICE Minute”

IAOVC Logo

Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition iaovc.org

IAOVC highlights interesting facts about the Italian American experience in America with “bite-sized” video features, this one on Labor Day

BLOOMFIELD, NJ, US, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition (“IAOVC”), America’s largest independent Italian American anti-bias organization, continues its new initiative highlighting interesting facts about the Italian American experience in America with concise, interesting and fact-filled videos. Dubbed “The ONE VOICE Minute” the latest edition concerns Labor Day.

Italian Americans have long been known for their industrious and hard-working nature. In all aspects of life, Italian Americans worked hard, climbed the ladder of success, and shaped the laws that now permit workers more freedom, more time off and more benefits, both on and off the job. Throughout history you can find the impact that Italian Americans have had on the labor movement in the United States. The holiday we celebrate on the first Monday of September can be directly attributed to the efforts of Italian American labor leaders as well as rank and file workers. These and other facts about the Italian American connection to Labor Day are featured in this new edition of The ONE VOICE Minute.

The ONE VOICE Minute videos are written and produced by Frank Cipolla, and hosted by Andre’ DiMino, Executive Board Member of IAOVC, who regularly appears on TV and radio interviews representing IAOVC in its efforts at fighting stereotyping and denigration of Italian Americans, most recently in opposing the elimination of Columbus Day. “It is truly an honor to host The ONE VOICE Minute series and highlight facts about how Italian Americans have contributed so much to our great country throughout history,” stated DiMino.

“I am very pleased with our third edition of The ONE VOICE Minute about Labor Day,” stated Dr. Manny Alfano, Founder and President of IAOVC. “Our first two editions on Memorial Day and Independence Day were extremely well received and it was great to receive so many compliments from across the country. This is a great way for us to feature important facts and information about Italian Americans that may not be widely known.”

The ONE VOICE Minute on Labor Day is at YouTube at https://youtu.be/GtSFMCV4xFY

IAOVC is different from all other Italian American organizations in that its sole focus and objective is to educate and fight bias, stereotyping and discrimination against Italian Americans. IAOVC is an IRS-Registered 501(c)3 non-profit.

IAOVC issues a regular email newsletter, “The Alfano Digest,” to more than 5,000 individuals and Italian American organizations nationwide. Written and compiled by Dr. Manny Alfano, Founder and President of IAOVC, the Digest issues alerts on instances of bias, stereotyping, discrimination and defamation and activates the IAOVC nationwide network of “Defenders” who respond through calls, emails, faxes, letters and demonstrations where necessary. The Digest also contains informative Italian American cultural and heritage information. To receive the Digest, email Dr. Alfano – mannyalfano@comcast.net.

Dr. Gary Alter, Acclaimed Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Alter recently travelled to Chile to be a guess faculty speaker at the 2019 Chilean Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Congress in Santiago, Chile.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Gary Alter, acclaimed plastic surgeon, has had an incredibly busy year so far. Between teaming up with the Stem Cell Doctors of Beverly Hills to open his new state-of-the-art Biocellular Center, (https://stemcelldoctorsbeverlyhills.com/), he also recently travelled to Chile to be a guess faculty speaker at the 2019 Chilean Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Congress in Santiago, Chile, which took place August 8-10, 2019.

“It was an amazing experience,” explains Dr. Alter, “I spoke on topics such as ‘buried penis’, ‘female genital aesthetic surgery including reconstruction of botched labiaplasties,’ ‘male to female gender confirmation surgery,’ ‘reconstruction of deformities from penile enlargement surgery,’ and ‘scrotum reduction.’” "The plastic surgeons were very gracious and interested in my work."

Dr. Gary Alter is an American plastic surgeon. His specialties include male and female genital reconstruction and gender confirmation surgery. He appeared in multiple episodes of the reality television series, "Dr. 90210" and one episode of “Botched”, both on the E! television network. He currently has an acclaimed practice in Beverly Hills, CA and Manhattan, NY.

Dr. Alter was the second surgeon ever with board certification by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Urology. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at UCLA School of Medicine. Dr. Alter performs most cosmetic plastic surgical procedures, but his sub-specialty is in genital aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. He has invented many original surgical procedures adopted by other surgeons worldwide, including the "Alter Central Wedge labiaplasty technique".

The acclaimed doctor has been highlighted on Alexis Arquette: She's My Brother (documentary) and on the TLC show Strange Sex, discussing hidden penis syndrome. He has appeared on the Discovery Health Network, TLC, CNN, the Larry King Show, and was a recurrent guest on "Red Eye" on the Fox News Channel. He has also been featured in numerous media outlets including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Allure, Self, Glamour, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, and Health.

“My trip to Chile was an enriching experience,” concludes Dr. Alter, “I will continue traveling and speaking worldwide to share my knowledge about my unique procedures.”
