In The Spirit of Jordan Peele's "Get Out" Comes New Suspense / Thriller Film – "Black Friday Subliminal"

There are also several powerful underlying messages in this movie. No matter how different we are, we are all united in the common desire to live healthy and otherwise productive lives…”

— Chauncey D. Henry, Esq.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, November 30, 2020 / — A film that will force you to question the very nature of our reality….and if it's all just an illusion, posited against a universal societal stigma. Presented by Robin Troja Films (, "Black Friday Subliminal" (2020) is an action-packed suspense thriller from the subconscious of Chauncey D. Henry, Esq. in his directorial debut.

"Black Friday Subliminal" Website & Trailer

When African-American NYPD officer Daniel Hart Jr. (Adrian Sterling) adopts a fallacious disregard of the conspicuous, he becomes consumed by more than meets the eye.

Following the passing of his mother, NYPD cop Daniel "Junior" Hart, Jr. (Adrian Sterling) and his father Mr. Hart, Sr. (Jeffrey T. Williams) are brought together for Thanksgiving dinner for the first time since his mothers passing by his wife Carole (Heidi Danae Crane).

Attempts by family to alter Junior's otherwise obstinate viewpoint of the affliction he has lived with (and ignored), are followed by a chain of escalating revelations brewing beneath the surface grounded in both science and reality. Faced with the brutal truth of unbeatable odds against him, Junior must embark upon an internal journey with the assistance of elements he least expected, in hopes to triumph over the deadly and debilitating condition he has lived with in an effort to survive Black Friday.

After the discovery of Junior's condition, Dark Forces suddenly are intent on taking his life…..Are these enemies real, projection or perception from that within?

"This is a film that will take you several places. There are also several powerful underlying messages in this movie. No matter how different we are, we are all united in the common [subconscious] desire to live healthy and otherwise productive lives…" said Chauncey D. Henry, Esq. (a litigation attorney by day)  who is making his directorial debut. "This inspirational film provokes thought of the conscious and subconscious mind; few will see the ending coming, but all will appreciate its deeper purpose…"

Emil Malak Pens an Op-ed: New antibody resistant coronavirus mutation N493K; Focus should be on testing

Emil Malak, CEO Voip-Pal, well versed in global politics, culture and health

CEOCFO Magazine logo

There is an urgent need for continuous testing every three days as well as making COVID-19 testing more widely available through innovative means such as testing vending machines.”

— Emil Malak

WASHINGTON, DC, US, November 30, 2020 / — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent investment publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced it has published an op-ed ( by Voip-Pal CEO Emil Malak. Inc., Voip-Pal (OTCQB: VPLM), a Bellevue, Washington based company is an inventor and pioneer of the switching technology now being used by many of the world's largest telecommunication and social networking companies, without which they could not connect Landline phone calls to Internet phone calls. Mr. Malak has other business ventures and is well versed in global politics and culture.

In February of this year (2020), just as the world was waking up to the news that people were fleeing Wuhan China, headed to worldwide destinations with the deadly coronavirus, Mr. Malak wrote his very first Op-ed on the subject. In the title of his article, “A Global Pandemic Has Already Started” Mr. Malak declared the novel coronavirus to be a worldwide pandemic one month before the World Health Organization did. Since then we have seen several of Mr. Malek’s predictions on the virus come true.

In his most recent op-ed, Mr. Malak discussed the new antibody resistant coronavirus mutation N493K. “The neutralizing antibodies that patients develop after being infected with a virus or following vaccination are not proving to be effective against this new mutant. The N439K mutation so-far is proving to be resistant to antibodies.

He continued, “N439K has already been identified in twelve countries and is increasing infection rates in the United States and Europe. As a result, within the next four weeks we could potentially see death rates increase. Authors of a recent study on the new coronavirus mutant conclude their findings could have consequences, not only on the efficacy of emerging vaccines but also the efficacy of antibody therapeutics.”

With studies such as the one by The University of Vermont Medical Center yet to be done, Mr. Malak who is very pro-vaccine and believes they save lives cautioned, “I have the utmost respect for politicians on both sides of the aisle that have dedicated their efforts into eradicating the coronavirus. One of the challenges is there are still too many unknowns before we can roll out a safe vaccine solution. Do neutralizing antibodies indeed vanish within a few months? Will antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) put those vaccinated in danger? Could a vaccinated person, thinking they are immune to COVID-19 become an asymptomatic carrier and spread the virus? How many doses of the vaccine will people need per year? Some suggest three of four doses per year to be safe. What about side effects? Will spike protein mutations complicate matters?”

Malak has repeatedly warned in his op-eds over the past nine months about the need to gather adequate data of at least two years before allowing a vaccine to go to the market. Recalling the mistakes of the 1960’s Thalidomide tragedy that led to tens of thousands of children born with birth defects, Malak wrote, “We need to learn from these tragedies and never repeat the same mistakes. Rushing into any drug or vaccine could lead to catastrophic consequences.”

Pointing to a study by Danish researches, Mr. Malak discusses another concern in the possibility that today’s vaccine may not work tomorrow because of virus mutation, “Researchers have documented at least two mutations of the coronavirus. In one instance the genetic sequence within the spike protein changed the position of the “614 G” aspartic acid (contains an amino acid and a carboxylic acid) to an “amino acid glycine.” That single change within the spike protein created a new COVID-19-2.0, far more contagious and deadly than the original. The second mutation was recently discovered in the mink farms of Denmark; two amino acid mutations within the spike protein. It is valid to question whether a vaccine would be effective after a mutation takes place in the spike protein. We do not know when, nor how frequently a mutation will take place, rendering the vaccine ineffective each time. Another important question that needs to be answered is how effective any COVID-19 vaccine will be on a mutated strain of the virus; a COVID-2.0.”

Mr. Malak continues, “As a result of this new virus all of Denmark’s 17 million farmed minks in their 400 mink farms are being destroyed and 240 or more mink farm workers are currently infected. This latest development provides even more reason why the focus should be on developing more effective therapeutics,” said Mr. Malak.

Mr. calls for what he calls, “The hammer and the dance” – for a new non-political task force. “It is necessary to form a national scientific advisory committee that is free from all political influence. The committee would provide two televised updates per week to advise the public of the facts regarding the coronavirus, its spread and what actions need to be taken by each state.”

Below is Mr. Malak’s proposal:
The Hammer – Europe is headed back to total lockdown, referred to as the “hammer” because of the resurgence of coronavirus cases. The virus is back in Europe vigorously, leading government officials to once again shutdown their economies. This radical action will be devastating to businesses and to the overall mental and physical health of Europeans and will hopefully be limited to a very short period.

The Dance – During the hammer period certain actions must be taken to get people back to work:
1. There is an urgent need for continuous testing every three days as well as making COVID-19 testing more widely available through innovative means such as testing vending machines that provide rapid results in one minute. Those that test negative are free to go to work, restaurants and live their lives normally. Those who test positive will seek medical attention and self-quarantine. More simple, rapid self-testing kits are needed.
2. Reconfigure workplaces providing the means for social distancing, disinfectants and mask wearing indoors.
3. Limit the size of indoor gatherings.
4. Indoor locations like restaurants, bars, and conference centers etc. could be retrofitted with air conditioning systems that burn out the virus during circulation cycles.
5. Close down tattoo parlors, massage parlors and prostitution businesses. Those with addictions should be treated in proper medical facilities.

People that do not adjust to the new norms necessary to deal with the virus will be leaving themselves vulnerable to potential infection and risks associated with the virus which includes death.

Malak, who has many years of experience dealing with the U.S. patent system hinted he may be writing a future article on the current state of patents in the United States saying, “Unfortunately, owning a U.S. patent today can be meaningless. It is no longer an asset but a liability.”

Stardust World Productions Shines a Spotlight on Women in the Music Industry

Shannon Rugani – CEO and Founder of Stardust World Productions

Stardust World Productions supports females in the music industry.

My goal is to build a team of producers and resources to successfully launch an artist and bring in other talented female artists to help develop their trajectory for success in the music industry.””

— — Founder and CEO, Shannon Rugani

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 / — Today, Founder and CEO, Shannon Rugani, is thrilled to introduce Stardust World Productions – a recording label dedicated to providing female artists with the support they need to thrive within the entertainment industry.

“I created Stardust World Productions as a women-supporting-women record label. My goal is to build a team of producers and resources to successfully launch an artist and bring in other talented female artists to help develop their trajectory for success in the music industry… and beyond,” Rugani shared.

While Stardust World Productions is a female-focused label, it is inclusive of all genders. The label’s vision is to develop a roster filled with the best women and men in the entertainment industry — those who will lift women up and open doors, helping them reach their greatest potential.

A meta-analysis of 700 songs performed by the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative drew attention to surprising disproportionality regarding gender acknowledgment within the music industry. When USC Annenberg’s Inclusion Initiative team focused on songs between the years 2013 and 2019, it found that only 10.4% of GRAMMY nominees were women. Stardust World Productions is on a mission to balance the scale.

“Our team includes incredible women and men, and as we grow, we’ll continue to seek out people who share the collaborative mindset that makes what we do so vital to our artists, the industry, and the world we live in,” Rugani said.

To learn more about Stardust World Productions, or to seek representation, contact Shannon Rugani at or visit

About Stardust World Productions

Stardust World Productions is a record label for women, by women. The company was established by musical artist and CEO, EMPRESS, as a foundation for talent that allows each artist to retain control over their creativity and career trajectory. The female-centric label proves that women have what it takes to make the world dance — especially when it’s sprinkled with stardust. Get inspired at

Allagash partners with Portland-Based Therapy Group to offer Expanded Access to Mental Health Care Services

WellSpace Maine Logo

Allagash contracts directly with WellSpace@Work and thus enables its workers to gain fast, confidential access to our staff who are nearby, available and a good match for a given employee’s issue.”

— Lindy Graham, LCSW and founder of WellSpace Maine

PORTLAND, MAINE, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 / — Allagash Brewing Company, which ranks among the best companies to work for in Maine, has recently launched a pilot program designed to make mental health counseling services more accessible to its workforce.

The program was announced jointly by Allagash and WellSpace@Work, a newly formed division of WellSpace Maine, a Portland-based mental health counseling practice.

In a statement, Celine Frueh, Allagash’s Human Resources Directory, said, “We are collectively experiencing the most stressful experience of our lives during the COVID pandemic at Allagash and throughout the world,” Our team is our number one priority, and essential to our surviving the pandemic. We wanted to put additional support in place for this fall/winter, ensuring that if anyone on the Allagash team wanted support for stress-related issues, they would be able to access it readily. With respect to mental health counseling, there are two general obstacles: finding a therapist, and affording the cost. By partnering with WellSpace@Work, and Allagash paying 100% of the cost, we were able to remove both of those barriers. What we hope to be a lasting effect of this partnership and increased education about mental health is totally normalizing the need for support on this front and removing stigmas about treating mental health challenges as they arise.”

Lindy Graham, a licensed clinical social worker who has been practicing in Portland since 2007 and who began growing WellSpace Maine in 2010, stated, “Through this program, Allagash contracts directly with WellSpace@Work and thus enables its workers to gain fast, and very importantly, confidential access to our staff who are nearby, available, and, a good match for a given employee’s particular issue due to careful upfront assessment. Our therapists know the Maine culture well—something we have found to be important to the employers currently considering Allagash-type programs with us”.

She explained that WellSpace@Work is paid on a fee-for-service basis for a variable, but finite, number of sessions which are carried out at this time via secure telehealth appointments but, post pandemic, will be offered on an in-person basis.

For Allagash, WellSpace@Work has set up a dedicated client-service unit and phone line to smooth the administrative process. It is also providing virtual mental health educational support through “lunch and learn” programs. Thus far, it has conducted a webinar on seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and managing the demands of work and children’s remote learning needs. Other webinars on substance use, parenting babies and toddlers in the pandemic, mindfulness, and healthy eating are in the offing.


About WellSpace Maine:

WellSpace Maine, which has offices in Portland and Yarmouth, provides counseling services for children, adolescents, families and couples. It also offers custom-designed counseling programs for employers through WellSpace@Work, as well as a professional training program for clinicians interested in deepening their practice.

New Podcast Accepting Short Story Submissions from Indie Authors

The logo of the Hopefully Prompt podcast

The Hopefully Prompt Podcast is looking for emerging and indie authors for their new show.

Show to feature diverse voices and promote new artists to a wider podcast audience.

ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 / — A new podcast is seeking short story submissions from independent and emerging authors to be featured on their first season.

The podcast, called Hopefully Prompt, will showcase authors from all genres and backgrounds. The stories will all be based on the same 5 word writing prompt, inviting authors to use their imaginations to create short form stories from that prompt.

Producer and host, Kyle Bullock, says they are looking for authors from all over the world and will be focusing on bringing diverse perspectives to the show.

"We want the underlying theme of these stories to be about hope," says Bullock. "We want that message of hope to come from artists of all different ethnicities, genders, faiths, nations, and ideas. Everyone is welcome to the podcast."

Stories that are chosen will be professionally narrated and produced complete with sound effects, music beds, and world building elements to give listeners an immersive feel.

According to the podcast's website, one of the goals of the show is to feature new and emerging artists, giving them a platform that will expose them to new fans and listeners. Artists can plug their latest work or encourage fans of the podcast to support their art.

"We really mean it when we say every genre is welcome," Bullock continued. "It excites me to see how someone who writes romance might approach the prompt versus how someone who writes horror approaches the prompt, or how a poet might do it. We're offering the listener a chance to hear something they might not hear otherwise, and perhaps fall in love with something that really expands their worldview."

The producers are accepting submissions for season 1 until January 15, 2021. Artists whose stories are chosen for the series will be notified in advance. Updates about the release of podcast can be found by visiting or follow the show's Facebook page.

Local Black Lives Matter Chapters Demand Transparency and Accountability From Global Network

Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter – BLM 10

Black Lives Matter (BLM), a group of 10 local chapters is renewing demands for transparency and accountability from BLMGN, demands that first began in 2016.

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 / — WASHINGTON, D.C. – Frequently faced with public scrutiny about finances and leadership of Black Lives Matter (BLM), a group of 10 local chapters is renewing demands for transparency and accountability from the global network, demands that first began in 2016.

Following a summer of increased organizing for social justice and massive donations to BLM’s fight for liberation, the local chapters released a public statement on Monday that outlines deficits in leadership, organization, and financial accounting. Specifically, the group asserts:

Patrisse Cullors, as the sole board member of Black Lives Matter Global Network (BLMGN), became Executive Director of the global group against the will of most chapters and without their knowledge.

BLMGN created new organizations, BLM Grassroots and the Black Lives Matter Political Action Committee without consultation with the vast majority of chapters.

Chapter organizers have been consistently prevented from establishing financial transparency, collective decision-making, and collaboration on political analysis and vision with BLMGN.

While millions of dollars have been donated to BLMGN, most chapters have received little to no financial support since the launch in 2013. It was only in the last few months that selected chapters appear to have been invited to apply for a $500,000 grant created with resources generated because of the organizing labor of chapters.

“We remain committed to collectively building an organization of BLM chapters that is democratic, accountable, and functions in a way that is aligned with our ideological values and commitment to liberation,” the statement reads.

Participating chapters demand that decision-makers of BLMGN, Grassroots, and the BLM PAC stop representing themselves as leaders or representatives of all of Black Lives Matter and provide full financial transparency and accountability to all chapters. This includes a full financial report from the past and current fiscal sponsors, a report of all contracts and staff and removal of any obstacles for interviews with them, and a public commitment to democratizing the use and distribution of finances. In addressing these issues, organizers will restore confidence in chapters around the world that was lost in negative critiques of the global network, which has not been involved in local chapters’ frontline work.

Local chapters that have signed the statement include Philadelphia, Pa.; Washington, D.C.; Chicago, Ill.; Hudson Valley, NY; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Denver, Colo.; Vancouver, Washington; San Diego, Calif.; and New Jersey.

As the group works to determine the next steps, organizers encourage supporters to organize with and donate directly to their local chapters, which represent the frontline of the movement. They also invite former chapters to reconnect and join the push for greater transparency and accountability needed to support the ongoing fight for liberation.

As a board certified Occupational and Neurological Medicine. Dr. Paul Elliott has been a valuable asset to the foundation in the areas of research, education, and advocacy.

Dr. Paul Elliott has worked closely with the experts at the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida to curate a robust research library and network that encompass the spectrum of discovery from concept to development. Dr. Paul Elliott has helped the Foundation to foster the development of new research professionals to support fresh avenues of discovery which will lead to better quality care and treatments.

In the area of advocacy, Dr. Paul Elliott has been invaluable with his in depth knowledge of neurobiology and occupational medicine. Because he has published and presented scientific studies in Neurological Medicine, occupational medicine, and Osteopathy, his advocacy has come with a depth and breadth of knowledge and authority which make his efforts eminently valuable.

While scientific knowledge of the brain is far from complete, Dr. Paul Elliott’s expertise and dedication to the cause have brought valuable insights to many people struggling with epilepsy, the friends and families of those living with epilepsy, those who directly care for someone living with the condition, and for many professionals who provide care and treatment for the condition.

Dr. Paul Elliott’s contributions in time and donations to the foundation have also been instrumental in the progress of the foundation’s Wellness Institute. This organization is dedicated to the prospect that those who live with epilepsy are entitled to the fullest and most productive life possible.

Today, Dr. Paul Elliott continues to provide Adult Neurological Consultation and Diagnostic Testing for patients dealing with a host of conditions and has been praised highly by both his peers and patients.
