Chaela Cares: 13-Year-Old Environmentalist/Agriculturist Wants To Create Grant For School-Aged Students

13 year old Chaela Dupuch, SCUBA diver, environmentalist and farmer.

Teen on quest to raise $20K for education so that she and others can preserve the environment

ELEUTHERA, BAHAMAS, USA, July 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — By Arthia Nixon, The Ambassador Agency

Having graduated this summer from a unique school which allowed her to learn hands-on marine biology basics and earn a junior SCUBA certification, Chaela Dupuch is on a mission to save the planet by teaching others to respect the sea and soil.

At just 13-years-old, the Deep Creek Middle School graduate knows about lionfish, turtles, and conchs in depth, and has tons of videos and photos showing her and her classmates learning while in the sea. She also has a mentor in Casuarina McKinney-Lambert, the Executive Director of the Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation (BREEF) and fellow Eleutheran who was featured in Forbes Magazine in January 2021 as one of the 50 explorers who are changing the world honored by the iconic Explorers Club.

Chaela says she wants more young people in the Caribbean to consider the natural resources they have which could sustain their island nations if another global crisis hits and cripples the tourism industry the way COVID 19 did.

“I am passionate about this and I even maintain a farm in my parents’ backyard,” Chaela says. “It’s better to grow your own food than to continue to consume foods that have a lot of chemicals in them plus it's cheaper than importing so much. The environmental side, I am passionate about that because I attended the Bahamas Plastic Movement camp for the past five years and we learned about how plastic is destroying our world and our marine life. We need better waste awareness and consistent recycling and we need to find a way to grow enough for ourselves so we don’t have to import all the time."

The Bahamas Plastic Movement was founded in 2013 by 2020 Goldman Environmental Prize winner Kristal 'Ocean' Ambrose. Kristal is currently studying for her PhD in Marine Management at The World Maritime University in Malmo, Sweden.

Chaela has garnered the attention of a few boarding schools in North America and has been accepted into one in Oregon. While classes are set to begin in just a few weeks, she is still short a significant amount. She also has to wait for her mother Markera to get a renewed passport, which has proven a little difficult.

“With all that has been going on in my life in the past few years including relocating from Nassau to Eleuthera and then having another baby, traveling overseas was not a priority,” said Markera. “The thing is my children do have their passports but I’ve been back and forth with the office for quite some time trying to give them all they are asking of me to prove who I am even though I was issued a passport before and I am a citizen. I have to travel with Chaela in order to get her in school and I am hopeful that everything will fall in place.”
Markera said that in their quest to raise funds for Chaela’s schooling, she learned that there are numerous opportunities for college level scholarships and grants, but discovered there was nothing catering to younger students who may be accepted into boarding schools.

“The One Eleuthera Foundation offered a grant to her and we are just so grateful to them for believing in her as a young Eleutheran,” said Markera. “They are on the ground so they see first hand what she does and what the other students do and I can’t express how much it means to know that they are backing her.”

Because of this, Chaela is forming a board to help middle and high school students with educational opportunities abroad so that others can have at least one resource.

“The goal is to learn as much as we can abroad and come back home with what we have learned,” Chaela explained. “Alot of people decide to stay but I want to make sure that we have things in place for future generations.”

Promising 6-Year-Old Black Female Comedian Pens Joke Books to Lift Pandemic Pressures

Chloé, Author and Comedian

Wolf Club Chlo

Wolf Club Chlo

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, July 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —
From knock knock jokes to standup comedian, laughter has lifted the spirits of many. Who doesn’t love a good belly laugh? During these unprecedented times, especially, people need to escape from the reality of a pandemic that has hit us all. With this in mind, Wolf Cub Chlo was fashioned. The creators are a mom, Jenn who is a high school teacher and her 6-year-old daughter and business partner, Chloe aka Wolf Cub Chlo.

Children can be very sympathetic as exemplified by Chlo’s remarks to her mom one day, “Mom, I’m tired of seeing people sick and sad and want to find a way to use my brain to make more people smile” That was the starting point for Chlo to write a joke book entitled “Once a pun a Time – a guide to reading and telling jokes for kids” and later work with her mom to write an accompanying 50 page Activity book for kids also entitled “Once a pun a Time.”

Mom Jenn also put pen to paper and wrote a guide for parents entitled “Discover how to eliminate the Screen Time.” This timely rendering is designed to help parents who find themselves in the ongoing battle that they have with their kids who sit in front of their mind-numbing devices for hours vegetating and not being productive. It instructs the parent on how to deal with their child while avoiding tantrums and meltdowns.
This dynamic duo also has a new release, an audiobook of “Once a pun a Time – a guide to reading and telling jokes for kids” perfect for a family on the go. This vehicle makes it accessible to the visually impaired so that they too can enjoy the jokes. It is narrated by Jenn, with all jokes told by Chlo herself!

The focus and hopeful outcome of Wolf Cub Chlo’s initiative is to encourage kids to gain a love for reading and to push them away from so much screen time while putting a smile on their faces. So many kids are falling behind educationally and socially because of this pandemic as statistics show. Wolf Cub Chlo’s mantra is “you can truly become whatever you put your mind to. Don’t let the world decide your fate, take your life into your own hands and decide for yourself what you will become – you are never too young to make that decision.”

Chlo is a pioneer breaking the barrier of race as the only African American little girl who self-published a comedy book at 6 years of age. She is already making inroads into an industry where 8 out of 10 comedians are male and only 10 percent are Black. The crowning jewel that overshadows everything is that most mothers are not business partners with their 6-year-old daughters. We are certain to hear more from this creative team in the future.

For more information about Wolf Club Chlo contact Jenn Bell-Allen at 917.676.7990 or support@wolfcubchlo.fans.

Egypt’s first travel approved COVID-19 RT-PCR testing portal

Egypt’s first dedicated website for travel-accredited COVID-19 RT-PCR tests provides travelers with quick and reliable access to over 230 labs across Egypt.

CAIRO, EGYPT, July 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Egyptpcr.com which is developed and managed by Inspiren Technology Lab; a technology and automation company, provides access to accredited and approved laboratories across the Republic that offers convenient PCR testing for travelers.

Egypt PCR Portal partners with Al Mokhtabar, a leading diagnostics services provider in Egypt and the country’s largest internationally accredited COVID-19 RT-PCR testing provider. Al Mokhtabar’s branch network comprises more than 230 branches located across all of Egypt’s major cities including Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada, North Coast, Assiut, Luxor, and many more.

During this phase, we are aiming to provide the service in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Greece, Cyprus, Ukraine, Turkey, Albania, Russia, and several other countries. Looking further ahead, in the third and final phase of the project we will provide PCR testing for outbound travelers globally,” he added.

Early in the crisis, we have provided PCR and our COVID-19-related tests to patients all across the country, playing a frontline role in helping authorities battle the virus.

Oomba Founder Michael Williams Offers These Tips For People Looking to Excel at Esports

Michael Williams Offers These Tips For People Looking to Excel at Esports

IRVINE, CA, UNITED STATES, July 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aspiring to be a professional gamer? Let's see what industry expert Michael Williams has to say.

Want to excel at esports? Just like any sport, it usually takes a lot of practice to become a pro gamer. While some people are naturally gifted in any given sport, most have to work hard and train. That’s why Oomba founder Michael Williams is going to share some insights for improving your game.

“Right off the bat, the first thing you need to understand is that esports isn’t all fun and games,” Michael Williams notes. “Videogames are fun. So too is a pickup game of basketball. But no matter the sport, if you want to excel, you’ll have to work hard for it.”

Many people and especially younger folks dream of becoming a pro-NBA player, football player, or professional esports player. Daydreams themselves can offer a nice break from reality. Yet very few people will ever enter the upper echelons of any given sport.

You may have what it takes to become a pro esports player, but nothing is guaranteed, and you’ll have to hone your skills. Starting early helps.

“Many of the best esports players began playing videos when they were very young,” Michael Williams points out. “If you want to become a top esports player, the time to start was yesterday. That said, even if you’re a bit older, you might be able to break in.”

Oomba Founder Michael Williams Talks About Focusing Your Efforts

So how do you begin training for video games? It’s smart to focus on a genre, and also a few specific games. If you want to become a top first-person shooter (FPS) gamer, you’ll need to spend a lot of time playing first-person shooters.

Michael Williams, who founded Oomba, argues that it’s also wise to pick one game at a time to focus on:

“A competitive Halo match is very different from a competitive Call of Duty match,” Michael Williams says. “The basics are the same, but the intricacies are quite different. Tactics and methods that work in Halo might not work in Call of Duty and vice-versa.”

This doesn’t mean you have to spend all of your time on a single game. Playing different games in the same genre may help you improve the same skills. A new game might also provide you with a different perspective. Still, you’ll have to pick a few games to focus on. This way you can learn the ins and outs of competitive play.

“You’ll need to keep yourself fresh too,” Michael Williams argues. “If you’re burned out on Call of Duty, taking a few days away is smart. You might set down the controller completely, for a couple of days, or you could play Halo or another game. But if you want to excel at Call of Duty, you’re going to have to get back into it.”

Besides playing video games, you should also read up on forums dedicated to games to learn new strategies and skills. A lot of players, including pros, will share insights.

Blues-Rock Guitarist Chantel McGregor Releases “The Shed Sessions Volume 1 & 2”

Chantel McGregor

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, July 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Critically acclaimed Blues-rock guitarist Chantel McGregor is releasing 2 new albums titled “The Shed Sessions Volume 1 & 2.” The first volume (acoustic) has been available for a few weeks and the second volume (electric) will be released August 2nd and is now available for pre-order.

“March 2020, the world changed and the everyday things that we normally did became a dream, the world went into lockdown, the pause button on life was hit, and we stayed at home.

So, I was sat there one night in my shed thinking to myself ‘what can I do to make lockdown seem a little bit brighter?’ After a while it came to me, ‘why not do a live stream so that I could stay in touch and connect with my lovely fans, they could connect with each other, and we all have a little bit of fun and music during a pretty gloomy time?’

At the time, I didn’t know that it would become a weekly thing, but the first session was so much fun that I thought I’ll do another one the following week, and then the week after that, and it became a weekly gig, ‘The Shed Sessions’!

5pm every Saturday was the hour every week where I could perform my music, have a bit of banter and catch up with friends on the live stream. An hour of music and humour to remind everyone that one day things will be fun again and live music will still be there!

A lot of people asked if I would record an album of the sessions, so I started thinking about what to record. There were so many songs to choose from!

At the start of lockdown, I was living in the North of England, so the sessions were just acoustic guitar and vocals, but when the government said you could move around more freely, I moved to the South of England and started collaborating with Jamie Brooks on keyboards, which meant that I could feature my electric guitar and a bit more improvisation. Because lockdown was still restricting studios being open, both albums were recorded at home, using a wardrobe as a vocal booth and then sent off to Wayne Proctor to mix and master.

The two albums are incredibly different, so it seemed appropriate to do two albums, one acoustic and one electric; ‘Volumes One and Two.’”

Chantel McGregor – July 2021

Chantel McGregor has been performing live gigs since the age of 12, schooled at a music college and achieved a First Class Honours Degree in Popular Music. Along with her current band members, Colin Sutton on bass and Thom Gardner on drums, they form an awesome power trio playing an eclectic mix of blues based tunes, composed by Chantel, ranging from traditional blues numbers complimented perfectly by the purity of her singing voice, to a much more raunchy blues rock style. And boy, can that girl play guitar! With several complicated solos she proved that she can shred with the best of them as her and her guitar became one.

The Nation, Wyoming, and the American Knife & Tool Institute Mourn the Loss of Senator Mike Enzi

A strong supporter of knives as essential tools is lost.

It is with great sadness that the American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) and those of us who personally knew Senator Enzi mourn the loss of a friend and supporter.”

— Jan Billeb

CODY, WYOMING, UNITED STATES, July 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Retired Wyoming United States Senator Mike Enzi, age 77, passed away this week from injuries sustained in a bicycle accident.

“It is with great sadness that the American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) and those of us who personally knew Senator Enzi mourn the loss of a friend and supporter,” said Jan Billeb, AKTI Executive Director. “We could not ask for a stronger champion for rational legislation and responsible government. Senator Enzi never wavered in his commitment to his constituents and as a powerful advocate for what he believed in.”

Senator Enzi, a Republican, served the nation and the people of Wyoming in the U.S. Senate from 1997 until 2021. Mike was well known as a consensus builder in Washington, D.C. From 2015 until his retirement from the Senate, he chaired the Senate Budget Committee, encouraging federal fiscal responsibility.

When AKTI Executive Director Jan Billeb explained the issue of multiple varying state and local laws regarding knife possession that knife owners face traveling to hunt, fish, or other activities to the Senator in 2013, he completely understood and offered to champion legislation to protect knife owners. He promptly found a co-sponsor in Senator Ron Wyden, Democrat representing Oregon, for legislation to give federal protection to knife owners traveling similar to what gun owners have enjoyed since 1986.

While the legislation eventually passed the Senate in 2018 by unanimous consent as the Interstate Transport Act, political debate on Capitol Hill over funding and shutdown made it impossible to move further. Re-introduced in 2019, the Interstate Transport Act passed the Senate Commerce Committee but stalled even with tremendous effort by both Senator Enzi and Senator Wyden and their staffs.

“We were pleased to award both Senators Enzi and Wyden for their tireless work to provide federal protection for lawful knife owners from the current patchwork of state and local knife laws with the AKTI ‘Common Sense Award,’ said CJ Buck, CEO, Buck Knives and AKTI Legislative Chair. “It was an honor and great privilege to work with someone so dedicated as Senator Enzi and his staff.”

“Knives are an essential tool for hunters and various occupations and the right to carry them with you when you’re on the road is something that should be protected,” Enzi said on accepting the award. “With thousands of knife laws across the country, our legislation provides a common sense solution that respects the rights of states while providing the protection that knife owners need to ensure they can travel without fear of prosecution.”

“We look forward to working with Senator Wyden to get this needed protection for knife owners passed,” said Buck, “and complete the effort that Senator Enzi never wavered in his commitment to accomplish.”

Kidney Transplant Recipient Launches YouTube Series To Help Other Kidney Disease Sufferers

YouTube channel dedicated to CKD with expert insight into natural approaches to support kidney health offers countless hours of free educational content.

WOOD-RIDGE, NJ, USA, July 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Robert Galarowicz, Naturopath and Kidney Transplant Recipient, has made it his life’s work to help other kidney health sufferers support more normal kidney function and preserve their overall health for as long as possible. Now, he is making the sum of his research available to all via Healthy Kidney Inc.’s new YouTube channel.

A re-launched YouTube channel dedicated to those living with chronic kidney disease with expert insight into the natural approaches that can help support kidney health has arrived and offers countless hours of free educational content for viewers.

Robert Galarowicz has done extensive research in the fields of nutrition and natural supportive options to help keep kidneys strong, help them preserve function and be able to do their job of excreting toxins from the body efficiently and safely. His driving passion behind this fervent devotion to supporting kidneys stems from his own personal experience with chronic kidney disease, which he was diagnosed with at the tender age of 21. Robert underwent many years of struggle with chronic kidney disease and experienced every stage of the ailment, from eventual renal failure necessitating dialysis to successful kidney transplant which he has kept in good working order through utilizing much of the same knowledge he shares on the Healthy Kidney Inc. YouTube Channel. Some of the most successful videos showcase this meticulously-acquired knowledge, while ensuring they are accessible to all viewers.

REDUCE Phosphorus Levels With Kidney Disease. 4 Tips Control Your Phosphorus With Kidney Disease
This video delves into some practical tips kidney disease sufferers can make use of to keep their phosphorus levels balanced. Phosphorus is one of the minerals which can quickly become toxic to the kidneys if not kept under control. Although it may seem like a daunting task, Robert’s approaches are easy to follow and maintain.

In this video, Robert discusses the ins and outs of what one day in his shoes looks like from a dietary point of view. What exactly does someone who is nutrition-savvy but also woefully aware of the need to balance their various kidney levels eat on a typical day?

#1 Way To Slow Down Kidney Disease and Even Reverse It | You MUST Check This For Kidney Function CKD

Low Magnesium & Kidney Disease | Blood Pressure and Heart Disease CKD
This video sheds some light on why magnesium is one of the most important minerals kidney disease sufferers need to monitor. Heart disease is another comorbid condition faced by those living with CKD and magnesium may play a crucial role in helping prevent it.

This is a small sampling of the vast catalogue of topics being covered on a daily basis by Robert Galarowicz on the Healthy Kidney Inc. YouTube page. There are numerous subjects of concern to the kidney disease community and many of these are often glossed over as an afterthought. Healthy Kidney Inc.’s philosophy, however, has always been rooted in a holistic approach. It’s all of those seemingly ‘small,’ disparate elements which, when meticulously handled, can dramatically alter the course of one’s kidney health. Fostering awareness of these issues is Healthy Kidney Inc.’s goal and the driving rationale behind each and every new video.

The inaugural webinar will also feature Amber, a 31-year-old cancer patient who has been facing stage 4 stomach cancer for almost 3 years. Amber’s story is a powerful testament to the work that needs to be done for Stage IV stomach cancer patients around the world.

“We run a monthly stage 4 support group,” said Aki Smith, founder, and director of Hope for Stomach Cancer. “It was during those meetings that I noticed gaps in information and services. That’s why we created the Hope Webinars. It will allow people to watch live or go back and watch recordings of relevant topics any time they need to. The webinars will provide additional resources and support for those navigating this disease.”

The Stage 4 Support Group, in partnership with the Esophageal Cancer Education Foundation, a zoom-style support group that includes GI oncologists, sees about 50 registrations each month demonstrating a clear need in the community for more resources and guidance. Smith and the team at Hope for Stomach Cancer continue to assemble resources that are provided to patients, caregivers, and even medical providers free of charge. Other resources include a free bag of stomach cancer-specific materials and a navigational binder called Hope-In-A-Bag, listing of clinical trials, research and data sharing, and online support conversation. Resources and support are available 24 hours a day at StoCAN.org.

Hope for Stomach Cancer is grateful to their sponsors, their guests, and all their volunteers for giving hope to those with stomach cancer worldwide.

“Our goal at Hope for Stomach Cancer,” Smith explained. “Is to provide the most up-to-date information, as well as emotional support, for everyone affected by stomach cancer.

“A major focus for us is younger cancer victims as we’re seeing more and more stomach cancer in people in their 20s and 30s than ever before.

“These webinars and all our resources are designed to provide information and support so that stomach cancer patients can make informed decisions and live their best lives.”

Hope for Stomach Cancer is a 501(c)(3) that provides resources to patients, caregivers, and loved ones while promoting early detection and prevention to the general and medical communities. Hope creates and facilitates programs that enable those affected by stomach cancer to take actionable steps to live the best possible life through each phase of the disease. Our vision is to bridge the gap between research and patient care.

Pair Spirit Stackers with Spirit Bling; colored, magnetic-backed rhinestones, in ten shades, to add a second color to match your favorite sports team, cause, or event. The new line brings lash-wearing to the next level, helping fans achieve a colorful and playful look.
