U.S. group honors Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques with Nelson Mandela Humanitarian Award in Riyadh

For the Zayed Mile initiative in Year of Zayed, South African Arts International highlights one Arab country that Sheikh Zayed embraced & it's current leader

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — South African Arts International (SAAI) is pleased to announce during the Year of Zayed, it's highest honor – The Nelson Mandela Humanitarian Award recipient is Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

King Salman is being recognized for championing the Spirit of Humanity worldwide. Through his vision, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has no boundaries in helping humanity and remains a pivotal leading partner in Global Coalition to defeat ISIS.

The award will be hand delivered to officials in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on December 3, 2018.

As part of the Zayed Mile initiative for Year of Zayed, South African Arts International is highlighting one Arab country that Sheikh Zayed embraced, which stood the test of time and it's current leader. For that, South African Arts International salutes the relations between United Arab Emirates (UAE) – Saudi Arabia and Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and King Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud formed a strong bond early on, which today is enhanced with the newly formed Saudi-Emirati Coordination Council. Sheikh Zayed was a man of wise words who once stated "Arab oil can never be dearer than Arab blood".

With the harsh elements of summer heat in UAE ended, South African Arts International will culminate the Zayed Mile on UAE 47th Anniversary this December 2, 2018. The first leg of the Zayed Mile, a four day, 250 mile bike ride from Queens, New York to Montauk Point, Long Island to the United Nations Headquarters in New York City was completed in July by Don Victor Mooney, a dual national of USA and Equatorial Guinea, currently living Queens. The purpose was to highlight Sheikh Zayed environmental legacy.

Starting late November from the United Arab Emirates with seven ghaf trees – the national tree of the UAE in tow, the second half of the Zayed Mile will have Don Victor Mooney undertaking a bike ride from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. The seven ghaf trees will symbolize and celebrate Sheikh Zayed vision of uniting all seven Emirates and will be planted in the capital city. At the conclusion, the bike, trailer, banners and awards from New York officials will be presented to Year of Zayed organizers.

Don Victor Mooney will depart from Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House, former residential quarters of Saeed bin Maktoum Al Maktoum, former ruler of Dubai. He'll make another stop at Al Ain Palace Museum before heading to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. The journey is expected to take four days. Don Mooney fly's from New York's JFK airport on November 25 aboard Saudi Arabian Airlines to Dubai.

Salvador Litvak

New Award Named After 1st Century Jewish Sage

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, October 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The popular Jewish website Accidental Talmudist has announced the first annual Hillel Prize for Elevating Public Discourse.

The award will honor an individual who refines the national conversation by publicly engaging their opponents with respect.

It is named after Hillel the Elder, a first-century sage known as much for his forbearing manner as his brilliance. Jewish law generally follows the School of Hillel rather than their archrivals, the School of Shammai.

Why? Because the students of Hillel stated their opponent’s viewpoints before their own – and did so fairly, without sarcasm or insults.

According to Accidental Talmudist founder Salvador Litvak, “We live in a time when demonizing those with a different point of view has become the norm, leading to acrimony and further division instead of progress. By awarding the Hillel Prize, we aim to bring the ancient Jewish art of respectful disagreement to American public life.”

A Hollywood film director and Chilean immigrant, Litvak became the “Accidental Talmudist” after a little miracle launched him into seven years of daily Talmud study. “In the oceanic reservoir of Jewish lore, I discovered a fountain of wisdom that's relevant to all people,” Litvak said.

Today, Litvak and his wife, Nina Davidovich Litvak, reach one million people in 70 countries daily through an engaging blog and live show. The Litvaks' mission is “to increase peace in the world by sharing Jewish wisdom with everyone.” Accidental Talmudist’s exploding popularity proves the relevance of these ancient teachings, in this case by ensuring civil discourse around heated issues.

To nominate a worthy recipient for the Hillel Prize, send Accidental Talmudist a note explaining who and why via accidentaltalmudist.org/hillelprize.

Mad Crazy or Genius? Entrepreneur Pitches Building $200 Million Film Studio But He Wants It Built In His Own Country

Paul Brough, A Bold Dallas Serial Entrepreneur, Plans To Build A $200 Million Film Studio In His Own Nation On A Caribbean Island

Paul bodaciously promised the first 100+ employees will be millionaires within seven years.”

— Paul Brough

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, October 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — One Dallas serial entrepreneur Paul Brough is legally changing his name to King Pink next month in preparation of him having his own country. For over a year, Mr. Brough has been covertly working with several Caribbean governments on his $200 million film studio vision that he wants built in his own country. That's right, his own country.

Now one of the best islands in the Caribbean, Aruba, is Paul's #1 Caribbean island to make a land deal with for his visionary film studio project and the formation of a new country. In exchange for land on the undesirable, backside of Aruba, Paul guarantees government officials his project will become the most desirable tourist destination in the Caribbean. Plus create hundreds of new jobs, inject billions of dollars into Aruba’s economy and secure Aruba’s financial future for generations to come.

Eager to get his project approved, Paul guaranteed government officials he’d deliver on what he said or he would spend the rest of his life in an Aruban prison. Paul agreed that his new country would never have a military or police force and the country's population would never exceed 200 citizens. And, Aruba's government collects – forever – an undisclosed percentage of all the revenue generated by Paul Brough's new nation. Aruban laws will govern Paul's country while Aruba's currency, the Florin, will serve as the country's currency.

Living nearly five years in Aruba, Paul believes his former island home is the perfect place for his project. “Aruba has one of the lowest crime rates in the Caribbean. Aruba sits outside the hurricane zone. Near perfect weather year long. Tons of water, land, and nighttime activities. Amazing hotels, food, and culture. The friendliest locals in the Caribbean. ” states Paul Brough or soon to be King Pink.

One question we asked Paul is, “Why do you want your own country for your project?” He replied, “It’s the most outrageous marketing, publicity stunt you could imagine. People from around the world will come to vacay at Aruba to visit the one-of-kind global tourist attraction – a new country. A country where everything is painted pink. Pink is the universal color of pink.” Paul's mandating that his citizens must volunteer ten hours a month at local Aruban nonprofits and Aruban citizens can get free training in the areas of technology, film production, and entrepreneurship through Castle V's vocational school.

Visitors will be welcomed to visit the centerpiece of the new nation, Castle V. Castle V is a modern-day castle with apartments and almost every conceivable amenity. Planned inside Castle V is a film studio that will produce the 350+ films Paul Brough has secured. The plan is to power the country with 100% renewable energy sources and provide water through an onsite solar water-desalination plant. Paul’s future expansion plans include building a world-class aquarium, zoo, water-park, and themed-ride amusement park which will always be free for Aruba's citizens. Visiting Paul's country will require tourists to arrive exclusively through Aruba’s airport or cruise ship terminal.

Earning money to support his country will come from companies spanning several industries that include entertainment, technology, media, and education. WIth 148 new reality series concepts secured, Paul plans to launch Yeahclix, a monthly Netflix-like subscription service. As a goodwill gesture, Paul agreed to produce several weekly reality shows that will showcase Aruba.

For the thousands of creative people that have already applied to be part of Paul's vision, only 150 will be selected. Paul has bodaciously promised the first 100+ employees will be millionaires within seven years. On top of salaries, profit-sharing, Castle V's amenities, employees will enjoy rent-free living, shared toys, debt forgiveness, and free medical, dental, and plastic surgery.

World peace is Paul's ultimate vision. Until then, Paul’s bold philanthropic goal is to give away 90% of his country's profits to financially support 18,000 Bolder Doers to go and help the world. Let me not forget to mention that Paul Brough is also running to be the next president of the United States. God told Paul, "If you run, you will win". Is Paul mad crazy or is he a philanthropic genius entrepreneur? Only the future holds the answer. Either way, it's going to be fun to watch him. One possible name for King Pink's new country was hidden in the words above.

A being is only as valuable as he can serve others”

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ten outstanding professionals received humanitarian awards for their long-term work on international religious freedom, opioid education, law enforcement through community outreach, and disaster response. The award ceremony took place in the heart of Washington, D.C. at the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office and brought together diverse local and national leaders to acknowledge the recipients and celebrate the sixth anniversary of the Church’s office.
The awardees were:

Greg Mitchell, a prominent D.C. lobbyist who has been in national politics and government since 1991, works to improve religion-related policies and advance religious freedom around the world. He serves as the managing co-chair of the International Religious Freedom Roundtable, and has become one of the foremost leaders in the religious freedom world not only in Washington, D.C., but also traveling to foreign countries promoting the value of the Religious Freedom Roundtable model.

Tasting What a Crock Meal Kit Delivery Service for a Week

What a Crock Meals To Go Logo

Here's what happens when you try What a Crock Meal Kit Delivery Services for a week!

Americans have embraced the crock pot. And why not? You can make a wholesome meal without a big kitchen mess.”

— Ellen Ganime, Blog Author

COLLINGDALE, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

I have a confession to make: I love food and I can’t cook. Well, I am good with the microwave but that’s it as far as I’ll go with the appliances in my kitchen.

I love watching pretty much everything on the Food Network, but trying their recipes doesn’t end well. And now there are all these home meal kits and home delivery services, like Plated.

It’s like the universe is telling me to give cooking one more try.

So, I decided to take small steps. I didn’t want to get too deep into the cooking process; I wanted something that has little prep time, has simple recipes and uses quality ingredients – nothing processed or too spicy. I don’t know about you, but I am a wimp when it comes to spicy foods.

I wanted to find an affordable family meal plan, delicious dishes my entire family would like. I didn’t want to go too specialized, like a personal meal plan like Atkins either.

While hunting around online, I learned about all the meal kit delivery programs and the prepared foods you could buy on Amazon. I didn’t want to do what everyone else was doing. Then I came across What A Crock.

It’s a meal-kit delivery service that prepares meals to be made in a crockpot. What a cool idea!

As I read more about the company, the more excited I got. They make the meals in their kitchen, so everything is portioned correctly and tested. I was very interested in their portions because I tend to eat too much in one sitting, which makes it harder to lose weight.

You can purchase a meal in one of their stores or purchase online. I looked at their menu and everything looked and sounded delicious. But how would they taste? Could these chef-designed recipes really be made in a crockpot? I decided to take the leap and purchased five dinner meals and a dessert (I couldn’t resist). I told my family what I was doing, and they were skeptical of the idea, not because of the company, but of me actually following directions and cooking (yes, it’s cooking because I am using a crockpot).

Ordering on their website was easy and they had a lot of meal options. I was spared a trip to the grocery store the week I planned the meals. My weekly menu consisted of chicken, beef, sausage, pasta, vegetables and pork – and a brownie. How it works is that you simply dump the meal pouches into the crockpot, set the temperature and go!

Monday – Chicken Pot Pie Stew

I chose this meal because it got me geared up for the cooler temperatures of fall. The ingredients read like a daily harvest of vegetables: carrots, corn, peas, and potatoes. It even came with an herb sauce (one less thing for me to make). The prep time was about five hours and all I had to do was drop it in the crockpot. There was a tip to add Pillsbury dough on top, but I didn’t get around to getting the dough. I worried that the stew would be watery, or like soup, but it wasn’t. It was delicious! I couldn’t believe that it tasted like home cooking. The vegetables weren’t mushy, and the sauce was tangy, not spicy. This is going to be on my “cooking list”! My only issue is that it doesn’t take as long as the other meals to make. It was a good thing I left work early to make this meal.

Tuesday – Sausage Meatballs

Nothing makes a Sunday meal special like meatballs and pasta. The meatballs are made from Maglio’s sausage. Maglio’s has been a staple in Philadelphia (PA) for over 60 years. They specialize in making quality sausage for retail food businesses. The meatballs were a good size and quite juicy. The meal comes with Grandma’s gravy, which adds even more flavor to the meatballs. The pasta completes the meal and is hearty (and saves me another trip to the grocery store). The proportioned ingredients were easily put together too. I was surprised at how this freshly-made meal reminded me of eating our favorite Italian restaurant.

Wednesday – Old Fashioned Pot Roast

I swore I would never make pot roast for my family since I wasn’t a fan of it growing up. But, the image and the description on the website won me over. It comes with a large cut of beef and a vegetable medley. It takes longer than the other meals, but it was worth the wait. The beef was so tender, and the vegetables were delicious – a mix of carrots, onions, celery, and red potatoes. However, my daughter didn’t care for the sauce. And you must make sure the crockpot is filled at least a quarter of the pot or the sauce will burn. I’m not sure if I am putting on “cooking list.”

Thursday – BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

I was very hesitant about making pulled pork in a crock pot. We have a few restaurants near us that make great pulled pork sandwiches. Yet, the pork came out great! It was so easy to pull apart with a fork. It had the ingredients you’d expect with a southern BBQ sauce, including paprika, molasses, and brown sugar. It was sweet and spicy, a good balance. I don’t care for sauces that one or the other. The website has some great recipes for serving the pork. Again, this dish takes a long time to make. So, this and the pot roast would be good for the weekend.

Friday – Mexican Chicken Fiesta

I thought I would end the work week on a festive note. My family has had authentic Mexican cuisine, so this was a no-brainer. You get strips of chicken breast that are cooked in a light chili sauce. Remember, I am not one for spicy food, but I was able to enjoy this sauce. There were green peppers, corn, bean, and onions. Each portion is a two-person meal, so I doubled up. I like having leftovers! I put the chicken and sauce in super-soft flour tortillas. You can also make it as tacos. For a heartier meal, add rice.

Friday Dessert – Vegan Double Chocolate Brownie

I just had to try this! It’s not for the crock pot, but it looked so good. It does have a fudgy-brownie consistency and didn’t have the oily taste as some box brownie mixes have. One bar is pretty big, but I am a die-hard chocoholic and got four bars (don’t judge). I suggest warming a bar up and adding a scoop of vanilla or pumpkin (seasonal) ice cream.

Americans Love their Crock Pots

Americans have embraced the crock pot. And why not? You can make a wholesome meal without a big kitchen mess.

From this experience, I would recommend the meal kit service from What a Crock. Each meal is made from fresh ingredients and there are some meals made with seasonal ingredients (e.g. Pumpkin Pie Perfection).

You’ll receive easy-to-follow recipes that come in the form of recipe cards, which are concise and fun to collect. I loved the fact that my grocery shopping was taken over by these delicious meals, and they made budgeting quick and easy. You can have them delivered to your home with convenient delivery dates when ordering online.

I have to say that the best meal was the Chicken Pot Pie Stew. If you are looking for a different meal plan, check out What a Crock today!
