Gabriel Btesh looks toward increasingly prosperous future for Panama's construction industry

Gabriel Btesh

PANAMA CITY, PANAMA, UNITED STATES, March 22, 2019 / — Established Panama construction sector professional Gabriel Btesh points toward an increasingly bright future for the nation's building and property development industries.

First establishing himself within Panama's construction business more than 30 years ago, Gabriel Btesh today heads up one of the nation's most successful and well-respected building and property development companies and remains a prominent figure among fellow professionals and other senior members of the industry.

Throughout his career, construction firm boss Btesh has championed improved standards of architectural integrity while maintaining a keen eye and a strong focus on well-being, both in Panama City where he's based and throughout the rest of the Central and South American nation.

"I knew very early on in my career that I wanted to have a positive impact on the construction sector, and I remain as focused on—and committed to—that idea today as ever before," suggests Btesh, who first found his feet in Panama's building and property development industry in the 1980s.

Now the head of the successful construction firm originally founded by his father, Jack Btesh, son Gabriel's desire to facilitate improved building standards and to bolster national levels of well-being have seen him establish a number of groundbreaking initiatives.

One such initiative, Gabriel Btesh reveals, includes ensuring that a range of health and wellness-focused facilities and spaces—such as gyms, plus communal and creative areas—are included in the company's residential construction and development projects.

Regularly exercising, demonstrating creativity, socializing with friends or neighbors, and otherwise keeping fit have all been shown to foster both improved mental and physical well-being, according to construction mogul Btesh. He also explains that well-being in these areas is closely tied to general prosperity and, as a less direct result, improved overall local and national economic landscapes.

"More recently, the rest of Panama's growing and increasingly revolutionary construction industry has begun to follow in our footsteps, placing a higher than ever level of focus on advancing standards of building and property development," Btesh points out, "as well as on feelings of well-being throughout the nation."

This, he says, indicates an increasingly prosperous future for Panama's construction industry and for the country as a whole, attracting interest from colleagues and other construction sector professionals from wider Central and South America, North America, Europe, Asia, and elsewhere around the globe.

"Today, all eyes are very much on Panama's ever-evolving and rapidly growing construction sector," Gabriel Btesh adds, wrapping up, "indicating that the industry is set to continue going from strength to strength during coming years and for decades to follow."

Mr. Christopher King, CEO of the Gentlemen’s Course and grandson of legendary blues performer B.B. King, addresses the need for youth to be on the watch for violations of human rights in the headquarters of the Florida chapter of United for Human Rights.

Teaching youth their human rights so that they can become valuable advocates for Peace and Tolerance is at the forefront of the mission of Youth for Human Rights,”

— Cristian Vargas, Executive Director UHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, March 22, 2019 / — Clearwater, FL – On March 19th, 2019, thirteen teenagers, ages 11-14 from the Community Learning Center (CLC) learned several of the articles of human rights from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the United for Human Rights Florida’s Center in downtown Clearwater. Each youth then pledged to help other youth learn their human rights. The Community Learning Center is a non-profit tutoring organization that provides academic support to children and adults, regardless of income level.

“Teaching youth their human rights so that they can become valuable advocates for Peace and Tolerance is at the forefront of the mission of Youth for Human Rights,” said Cristian Vargas, the Executive Director for United for Human Rights’ Florida Chapter.

This week’s seminar focused on Human Rights #21 The Right to Democracy and #22 Social Security. The kids were very engaged and led a discussion between themselves and the UHR Volunteer for nearly an hour. The students left armed with human rights educational booklets and a new-found inspiration to use their human rights and help spread the word.

“We take on the responsibility of teaching youth all over Pinellas County what their human rights are, said Cristian Vargas. “By working with incredible educational organizations such as the Community Learning Center, we hope to inspire a movement of change amongst the youth in our county. One day, our next generation will live in a world where human rights are respected by everyone; they won’t discriminate, won’t racially profile people nor think differently about someone just because of their faith. That is the world that Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard envisioned when he said, ‘We stand for truth and for human freedom. We stand for greater spiritual freedom and greater human rights.’”

Each month for the past year, CLC has been bringing a class of kids to the UHR Florida center to learn two more of their 30 human rights in a one-hour seminar. Cristian Vargas said that the children not only learn their rights, they understand how to ensure that their rights are not violated. UHR uses Youth for Human Rights educational materials.

For more information about UHR and the seminars held at the UHR Center in downtown Clearwater at 29 N. Fort Harrison Ave., please call 727-467-6960.

Jared Goetz shares the importance of an entrepreneurial mindset

Jared Goetz

Entrepreneur Jared Goetz addresses the spirit, mindset and traits required for self-made success.

BOCA RATON, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 22, 2019 / — With more and more of us now looking for self-made success, aspiring business owners and start-up founders alike—both in the U.S. and globally—are driving higher-than-ever rates of entrepreneurship. Here, serial entrepreneur Jared Goetz shares the importance of an enterprise-focused mindset in both achieving and maintaining excellence in business.

"To succeed as an entrepreneur you must be optimistic," suggests Goetz. "Rarely does an individual achieve success while harboring negative feelings, and it's my belief that a positive and confident outlook is vital if a person is to make it as an entrepreneur," he adds.

Known as the 'entrepreneurial mindset,'Jared Goetz reveals that this way of thinking, coupled with a strong and enterprising spirit, is essential in the pursuit of what he calls 'business excellence.'

"Two key areas of focus for those looking to achieve a more entrepreneurial mindset should be optimism, as above, and passion," Goetz continues, "with a passionate, enthusiastic outlook being truly fundamental to fostering a successful business environment."

A passionate, enthusiastic approach is also, he says, contagious, and one of the best ways in which to instill the 'entrepreneurial mindset' into others, which is particularly essential when growing a team, according to the expert.

Another trait required for success as an entrepreneur, according to Goetz, is self-belief. "Self-belief directly translates into a readiness to take a variety of calculated risks," he explains, "which, as any experienced entrepreneur will tell you, is largely essential to success."

It's also important, says Goetz, that aspiring entrepreneurs continue to push themselves at every stage of their journey. "From day one to day one-thousand and beyond, success rides on being, or becoming, a go-getter, and believing in oneself at every twist or turn in the road," he adds. "Never be afraid," Goetz continues, "to take a leap of faith, particularly where the potential rewards are significant."

A desire, in business, 'to execute,' says the serial entrepreneur, is not only vital but also one of the most common traits seen in those who have already achieved the so-called entrepreneurial mindset.

"Be prepared to act on ideas as soon as they come to light," Goetz adds, wrapping up, "and with the right level of optimism, enthusiasm, and self-belief, the dream of succeeding as a self-made individual can become a reality."

Jared Goetz is a serial entrepreneur known for his e-commerce success and for building the eComHacksAcademy, one of the world's largest e-commerce education platforms. Featured in publications including Entrepreneur, Inc., CNBC, and Forbes, Goetz has earned exposure to numerous coveted entrepreneurs and has grown his professional network to include hundreds of like-minded and successful businessmen and women. Proud owner of a Weimaraner named Nula, Goetz's other passions include golf, world travel and international cuisine.

Intermountain Caregivers Pioneer Mental Health Support Group for Emergency Staff After Losing One of Their Own

The OASIS program will train nurses and physicians in suicide prevention and will select leaders and peer counselors

We know people are silently struggling with issues both in and out of work, and we want them to know they don’t have to.”

— Adam Balls, MD, chair of the ED at Intermountain Medical Center

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, March 22, 2019 / — Doctors, nurses, and caregivers in the Emergency Department at Intermountain Medical Center have created a new mental health peer support system. The OASIS program aims to confront post-traumatic stress disorder type symptoms and other mental trauma caregivers can experience at work. OASIS stands for:

Outreach education
Administrative support
Staff support
Internal/Incident support
Social support for all members of our ED family

Adam Balls, MD, chair of the Emergency Department at Intermountain Medical Center, Gary Brunson, RN, assistant nurse manager, and several colleagues developed the OASIS program after a coworker took his own life in March of 2018. Skyler Gardner had worked in the Emergency Department for several years as a critical care tech lead. Dr. Balls said his death came as a shock to everyone.

“Skyler was loved by many and liked by all,” said Dr. Balls. “He had reached out to some people, but they didn’t know what to do.”

After his death, Skyler’s parents Blake and Wendy started a campaign on suicide prevention called “Love Yourself,” in hopes of getting people the help they need. As a part of the effort they made “Love Yourself” wristbands which ER staff wear and give out to patients in similar situations.

“We’re just overwhelmed to see them getting the word out, and remembering Skyler,” said Wendy. “I really hope telling his story will help others.

Intermountain Healthcare offers free counseling to all employees through the Employee Assistance Program. Dr. Balls said some caregivers may feel uncomfortable talking with a stranger not in their department. OASIS trains specific emergency room staff who caregivers can go to for help. It also trains those staff to look for signs of mental stress in others.

“We know people are silently struggling with issues both in and out of work, and we want them to know they don’t have to,” notes Dr. Balls.

Gary Brunson is the assistant nurse manager of the ED and one of the leaders of the OASIS program. He was good friends with Skyler and didn’t suspect something like this would happen.

Part of the Intermountain effort is acknowledging that caregivers see traumatic things as part of their job. The goal, Brunson notes, is for them to realize it’s okay to be bothered by it and ask for help in dealing with the impact it has on their mental health.

"We deal with some horrific things – we see things that burn images into our brains that we are just unable to ever really clear," said Brunson. "The stigma is that we are just supposed to deal with it."

Nurse Megan Frausto is also helping lead the effort of the new program. As someone who has struggled with mental health, she hopes telling her story will help others.

“The stigma surrounding mental health sadly still exists today,” said Frausto.“I was honored when they asked me to head up this program.”

The OASIS program will train nurses and physicians in suicide prevention and will select leaders and peer counselors.

Organizers hope talking about mental health will show others that it’s okay not to be okay. Dr. Balls said struggling through tough situations doesn’t have to be a part of working in the Emergency Department.

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 23 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with some 2,300 employed physicians and advanced care practitioners, a health insurance company called SelectHealth, and other health services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through evidence-based best practices, high quality, and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit

Scott Gray’s ‘Raincoats & Other Short Stories’ Rerelease Available Exclusively in Europe and the U.K. on March 22

Scott Gray

Scott Gray is an Adult Contemporary / Jazz Singer – Songwriter based in Nashville, TN (USA).

I think for anyone who is passionate about music, the personal experience is part of the enjoyment for them. We are all looking for connection.”

— Scott Gray

NASHVILLE, TN, USA, March 22, 2019 / — Scott Gray, an Adult Contemporary / Jazz Singer-Songwriter based in Nashville, TN has rereleased his EP ‘Raincoats & Other Short Stories’ exclusively in the U.K. and Europe. The EP has been remastered and also includes a new bonus track.

The single, “Someday” (track five on the EP) is currently spinning on radio stations throughout the U.K. and Europe. There is also a new video for “Someday” that will be released on April 2.

True to the title, ‘Raincoats & Other Short Stories’ the seven song EP features stories and personal experiences that Gray wrote in hopes that he will connect with his listeners. His focus and dedication to host his listeners through a journey to articulate life has resulted in a sophisticated sound accompanied by a collection of well-told stories. “I think for anyone who is passionate about music, the personal experience is part of the enjoyment for them. We are all looking for connection. I want them to feel like they were included – a part of the process,” says Gray.

"Ever since I was a little kid, I was fascinated with stories. Stories always swept me away to another place and time and I loved feeling connected to its characters. Our ability to use our imagination is a very powerful thing and I knew that one day, I wanted to be a story-teller myself. That's basically what 'Raincoats & Other Short Stories' is; a collection of short stories that I fashioned in my mind (with small bits of real life peppered in between). I purposely wanted to write with such vivid imagery that the listener couldn't help but be taken away to some other place in their own minds and connect with the characters and in many cases, to ultimately be connected with each other.  Maybe that's what I like about the idea of storytelling the most, its ability to connect us. After all, isn't that the point of it all?” – Scott Gray

'Raincoats & Other Short Stories', will only be available on iTunes in the U.K. and Europe and is officially released on March 22, 2019.

Dr. Walid Phares’ Assessment and Strategy for Lebanon

Dr. Walid Phares at the UN Security Council

The status quo is not working.

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, March 22, 2019 / — On the eve of Secretary Pompeo’s visit to the Middle East and to Lebanon, AMCD advisor, Dr. Walid Phares gave his assessment of the present US strategy and made suggestions for changes going forward.

The traditional US strategy toward Lebanon is to continue support for the Lebanese army with the understanding that they help us in the fight against terrorism. During this visit, Secretary Pompeo will likely request that the Lebanese government distance itself from Hezbollah and put financial pressure on the terrorist organization to force it to disarm and eventually to withdraw from Lebanon entirely.

Dr. Phares believes this strategy will not work. He believes the US would be better off engaging the civil society of Lebanon and lift up the opposition. Said Phares, “The government of Lebanon is hopelessly entangled with Hezbollah now and is, in essence, controlled by it. Hezbollah intimidates the leadership of the armed forces and at the same time has an influence within its ranks. Asking the Government and the Army to disarm Hezbollah is a futile request."

Dr. Phares would rather see the Venezuelan model extended to Lebanon. He continued, “The US should by-pass the government of Lebanon and directly engage with the civil opposition, which does not want to be dominated by Iran. A similar strategy might also work in Iraq, as it too is coming increasingly under Iran’s thumb. Our strategy should be to support those elements in both societies who desire to live free from Iranian tyranny.”

Dr. Walid Phares is an advisor to the American Mideast Coalition for Democracy.

Females have been officiating on the football field since 1990.

The cast of HER TURF are active football officials – this is the 1st time their story has been told

Follow the journey of females officiating football.

Director/Producer Shantel Hansen and the cast of HER TURF

“HER TURF” Documentary Short Film is set to premiere at the The Artemis Women in Action Film Festival in Santa Monica, CA

I am convinced audiences will react to the social issues HER TURF showcases through the lens of sports because sports permeate our culture.”

— Shantel Hansen, Director and Producer

CENTENNIAL, CO, UNITED STATES, March 22, 2019 / — In 2014, Colorado filmmaker Shantel Hansen, Director, and Producer of HER TURF conceived for the first time, an idea to film female officials and tell their story. Females have been officiating on the football field since 1990. From 2015 to 2018, Hansen filmed three stories of female officials, in six different locations, to tell this story. FOX Sports Analyst and former Vice President of NFL Officiating, Dean Blandino serves as Executive Producer.

“I am convinced audiences will react to the social issues HER TURF showcases through the lens of sports because sports permeate our culture”, Shantel Hansen states. “Also, the film will ignite further and more in-depth conversations about gender, identity, representation, and break down representations about women holding powerful roles in sports.”

This ground-breaking documentary was selected to premiere at the 5th annual Artemis Women in Action Film Festival, April 25 – 28, in Santa Monica, CA. The cast, Director and Executive Producer will attend the Festival, as well as screenings during the event.

According to Dean Blandino, “Officials are first-responders in the game of football. Whether first on the scene for an injury, concussion protocol or rules violation, officials are the heart of the game. This film captures the strides women have made as officials, and the progress they are making in the profession.”

The timely and engaging film features Annice Canady, Tangela Mitchell, and Mary Podesta. Annice Canady from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida started officiating football in 1990 at the youth level. After battling cancer three times, she made her collegiate debut officiating for the NCAA in 2001. In 2002, Canady was the first female official to work an NCAA Division I football game on August 31, 2002.

Tangela Mitchell has the “it” factor in officiating; she is ambitious and talented. She keeps a level head during moments of physical and emotional adversity and is an integral part of every play. In 2013, Tangela Mitchell was one of four females to officiate in a SIAC football game. Mitchell continues to prove she has what it takes to officiate in the NFL.

Mary Podesta’s storyline brings some lightness to the gravity of Annice and Tangela’s journeys. Working full-time as a physical education teacher in California, Mary officiates for the love of the game. Her perspective is a refreshing contrast, downplaying the obstacles women face. However, through her optimism and moving quotes, the hurdles remain in the undercurrent.

These women reveal the struggles and triumphs of excelling in traditionally male-dominated roles. By their very presence, these three women are opening doors for those who will arrive after them. "HER TURF" is a timely and potent documentary, which follows three pioneering female football officials as they boldly attempt to level the playing field. As these officials change preconceived ideas about women excelling in a traditionally male role, this film will spark deeper conversations about gender representation in team sports.

Synopsis: This short documentary follows three female football officials as they claim access to a powerful role in a male-dominated industry. Annice Canady was the first female football referee to officiate an NCAA game in 2001. She is revered as a trailblazer, opening the door for other women to be in charge. The three-time cancer survivor does not shy away from reporting harsh realities on what it was like being the first female on the field. Tangela Mitchell has the “it” factor in officiating; she’s ambitious and has the talent to officiate in the NFL someday. Tangela carries Annice’s baton with grace as she continues to advance in the pipeline. Mary Podesta officiates for the love of the game and being part of the football community. Her sound bites are self-deprecating, entertaining, and funny.
