John, Paul, George & Ringo: Fifty Years Later – The Beatles Like you've Never seen them Before!

Tom Murray's Beatles Collection, The Mad Day: Summer of '68 is now at Soho Contemporary Art May 31-June16

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2018 / — July 28th, 1968 was one of those perfect English summer days when British photographer, Tom Murray, photographed the famed rock and roll group. The shoot was done on the run (literally) all over London in over to escape the hordes of screaming Beatles fans that followed then everywhere. Rushing from location to location inspired the name of the famous collection: The Mad Day: Summer of '68. These images would become the LAST publicity shoot of all four Beatles together – and represent the quintessential Beatles at the height of their psychedelic period and are considered the most important color photographs of the group, The Beatles officially disbanded in 1970.

After Tom created the photographs, he edited then to twenty-three slides on the advice of renowned photographer and friend, Eve Arnold who said, "keep the best, ditch the rest." And in his desk, the negatives stayed for 23 years. In 1986, Tom found the original slides of the Mad Day when he moved to LA to work with famed director John Schlesinger. Tom did not publish the. full series of photographs until he met gallerists Rick and Irene Rounick. The photographs, available in a 20X24 format size, are hand signed and numbered from a limited-editioin series of 185. They are also available in a 30X40 format size, hand-signed and numbered from a limited-edition series of only 50.

The Mad Day Collection, which originally debuted in New York, is back with Irene and Rick Rounick founders and owners of Soho Contemporary Art. The Rounick's, are ecstatic to bring Tom and the Mad Day Collection home. "Tom is a great photographer and our Gallery is thrilled to welcome him back to the family." The full collection
will open Thursday May 31 with a private VIP reception celebrating the 50th year and will be open to the public starting June 1st. The show runs through June 16th,

Memorial Day is important. Yes, it is a time to get together with family and friends. But it’s important to remember the real reason Americans get together on Memorial Day – to support our veterans.”

— John Salkowski – The JRS Realty Group

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, May 25, 2018 / — Today author and CEO of The JRS Realty Group, John Salkowski, announced his support for the Wounded Warriors Project. It’s an organization that provides year-round support for wounded warriors and their families. Salkowski believes Memorial Day is the perfect time to bring attention to this worthy cause and he has made a personal donation in support of them.
As a retired veteran police officer of 15 years, he’s familiar with how important the service of our veterans is to our country. Returning to civilian life can be a struggle for any veteran, but it’s more challenging for the men and women that return home with physical and psychological wounds. They deal with their injuries every day of the year – often for the rest of their lives.

The Wounded Warrior Project is involved with every aspect of helping veterans return to civilian life. They run a combat stress recovery program, partner with other community members working closely with veterans, provide support for family and they assist with caregivers. Organizations like this are an important resource for service members.

America has between 18 and 20 million veterans and many of them face difficulties when they return home. At least 20% suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome, but that number may be much higher. Considering everything thing these veterans have given for America, Salkowski believes donating to the Wounded Warriors Project this Memorial Day is something every American should consider.

Memorial Day is an important day on the American calendar. It’s a time to get together with family, spend special moments with friends and celebrate. Without taking away from any of that, Salkowski believes it’s important to remember the real reason Americans get together on Memorial Day – to support our veterans whatever their background.

To find out more about the Wounded Warrior Project and to donate visit Donations can be made online, but there are also other ways to support the cause including by phone and by mail. All contributions go to the support of wounded veterans and their families.

John Salkowski is a successful author and the CEO of The JRS Realty Group, one of Greater Philadelphia’s most successful real estate companies. He began the business after 15 years of dedicated service as a police officer in search of a new challenge. In addition to creating one of the nation’s top 1% realty companies, he’s also a best-selling author.

Patrick Brown Expresses his Opinion

The Political Assassination of Patrick Brown

Patrick Brown, Peter Bethlenfalvy raising funds for Party

When Ford said that he inherited a mess as party leader, he is very much mistaken. He inherited a party with a 20 point lead in numerous public opinion polls…

By the time I left as leader, we had a membership, which was either 136,000 according to Vic Fedeli or over 200,000 according to Thomas De Groot of the PC Party Party Executive and IT Chair.”

— Patrick Brown

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, May 24, 2018 / — As Publisher of Take Down The Political Assassination of Patrick Brown we are pleased that Mr. Brown addressed the constant barrage of false facts and accusations fed to reporters resulting in blatantly biased and false stories. While my only role is to present a book of facts and perspective it has not stopped threats from Party members, insiders who stood to benefit and even my own riding association, but the story will be told. The public will choose to buy or not, to trust a man who dedicated his life to making the PC Party a feasible force in Ontario politics or not. A Man who would have been Premier.

Dean Baxendale

Opinion Toronto Star
Published May 23, 2018
By Patrick Brown

There has been a great deal of attention recently about the inner workings of the Ontario PC Party and the state I left the party in. Party leader Doug Ford recently told the media to ask Patrick Brown about “the mess” he inherited. I am pleased to answer that question.

When Ford said that he inherited a mess as party leader, he is very much mistaken. He inherited a party with a 20 point lead in numerous public opinion polls, the largest membership in our party history, the most money ever in our coffers, a great slate of candidates and a policy platform that was the best received in modern memory for our party. We were well on our way to recreating the Big Blue Machine of the Bill Davis era. Moderate. Inclusive. Pragmatic. Progressive. That’s no mess.

Then-Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown, left, talks to his political hero former Ontario Premier Bill Davis.

When I won the Ontario PC leadership in May of 2015, by the largest margin in the party’s history, I inherited a party that was on the verge of financial bankruptcy. We were $7 million in debt and held the worst balance sheet of all the political parties in Ontario.

Under the capable leadership of Tony Miele and our PC Ontario Fund Board we raised record amounts. In 2016, over a period of six months, I spoke at 234 fundraising dinners and lunches. We raised $16 million that year, a record for any given year in Ontario politics. Fast forward to January 2018, when I was forced out as PC leader, we had $4 million in the war chest, had pre-paid key election expenses and had the best balance sheet of all the political parties in Ontario.

We also witnessed record membership growth. When I announced my intention to run for the Ontario PC leadership on the fall of 2014, we had 12,000 party members, the smallest of all Ontario political parties. We were disproportionately white, rural and old.

By the time I left as leader, we had a membership, which was either 136,000 according to Vic Fedeli or over 200,000 according to Thomas De Groot of the PC Party Party Executive and IT Chair. Either way it was the largest in the party’s history and the largest of any party in Ontario. Even more remarkable, we had become diverse, multicultural, urban, young and finally reflective of the beautiful mosaic that is Ontario.

We built a policy platform — the People’s Guarantee, which was praised across the province and in a Toronto Star editorial. Our policy co-chairs Kaydee Richmond and Kevin Gaudet poured their hearts and souls into this document. It was a home run and a culmination of two years of hard work by the grassroots of our party. What a contrast from some of the past platform launches that had failed miserably, such as faith-based funding in 2007, chain gangs in 2011 or 100,000 job cuts in 2014.

Our platform pushed mental health into the mainstream of Ontario political debate and now all three parties have adopted the funding commitments we made in the People’s Guarantee. Excluding sections on the environment, many parts of the document have been adopted by Doug Ford. I am proud this document has lived beyond my time as leader.

We became the first party to have third party oversight and we even hired private security to attend the particularly contentious nominations. While our nominations certainly became controversial, this was a result of having more candidates interested in running for our party than ever before. When we won by-elections in the Liberal strongholds of Scarborough Rouge River and Sault Ste Marie, it set off an avalanche of interest in becoming a PC Party candidate. We were not prepared as a party for the lengths people would go to win nominations. We had to shut down attempts to print fake ballots, produce fake ID’s, stop fistfights and even the stuffing of ballot boxes. I was beyond frustrated to hear these ongoing stories.

We took steps to ensure these nominations were run fairly and free from abuse. I personally ordered the party to bring in PWC to observe and certify our nominations. I have been as shocked as anyone else to hear about allegations that a candidate stole private 407 data. In retrospect, I am increasingly of the opinion political parties are ill equipped to handle nominations and that it is time to have Elections Ontario manage this part of our democratic process.

Ford said he inherited 90 candidates from me and he wasn’t involved in their vetting. He should sleep easy that he was handed a strong slate of…………During my leadership, we managed to recruit the most women and visible minority candidates in our party’s history.

Look at Peter Bethlenfalvy in Pickering who ran the credit rating agency DBRS, Rod Philips who ran the OLG, former broadcaster and Hamilton city councillor Donna Skelly, former hockey star Troy Crowder in Sudbury, former Natural Resources Minister Greg Rickford in Kenora, Caroline Mulroney, Bay Street lawyer and Brampton South candidate, Prab Sarkaria, Logan Kanapathi in Markham, who is set to be the first Tamil MPP in Ontario’s history, Angely Pacis, the candidate

National Science Concours or NSC is a unique online science competition. It is the initiative of Foundation for Innovation and Experiential Learning (FIEL), a not-for-profit education organisation. NSC was conceptualized five years back as a contest with an aim to create value for the participants through experiential learning. NSC has two levels, in the first level, there is an online Science Test and in the second level, students prepare a project based on Science. Winners of NSC go for a five-day Summer Science Camp. FIEL organizes two camps, one in South India and one in North India. This year, the south camp was held at Garden City University, Bangalore from 16th to 21st May, 2018. The North camp will be held at Shoolini University, Solan from June 25th to 30th, 2018. These camps are managed and organised by Mr. Japinder Singh, who heads the NSC program at FIEL.

In five years, the participation has increased from a mere 500 to more than 5 lakhs till last year. As per Mr. Krishan B Chandak, founder of FIEL, the aim of FIEL is to make NSC a value statement for experiential learning for school going children. "NSC is like sowing a seed of structured thinking and innovation in the minds of students. The results can be clearly seen in the students who attend these camps. This year we initiated the concept of "Big Idea of Change". Students have generated very innovative ideas and the best 10 ideas will be nurtured by FIEL to make them a reality."

NSC is recognised and recommended by the Atal Innovation Mission as a valuable contest for school kids.

In this five-day camp, students worked with eminent personalities from the field of Science and learnt from them. NSC is supported by partners like Pacific Rim Robotics. Ms. Rupali Pradhan of Pacific Rim Robotics with her team conducted a one and a half day workshop on Robotics. It was an enlightening experience for the students. Dr. S Sujatha, Scientific Officer at MP Birla Institute of Fundamental Research, took a workshop on Astrophysics. There was a talk by Dr. Nagaraj Lakshmeswar on Medicine as a career. He motivated and answered all the queries of the future doctors of the country. Apart from these, there were activities like star gazing, quizzes, and visits to Indian Institute of Science and Visvesvaraya Industrial & Technological Museum (VITM). On the last evening of the camp, students prepared and presented a vibrant cultural program. The evening was attended by many parents as well.

Neelakshi Chatterjee, Sreshith S R and Tanish Goyal were declared Junior Scientists of the Year in their respective groups.

This Camp was hosted by Garden City University, one of the most enterprising and innovative Universities in India. They have been supporting NSC for the past two years and their mission is to nurture and encourage young talent. GCU offers UG/ PG courses on Technical, Health, Management, Life Sciences, Agriculture, Law and allied sectors.

Dr. Joseph VG, Chancellor of Garden City University had this to say about NSC, "Meeting the National Science Concours Scholars is always a pleasure every year. Drawn from across 30 cities in India, the young and enthusiastic lot in this year's batch I am sure will excel in their corresponding areas of interest. My only advice to them is that they must be a good human being.This team whom I met is an exceptional group and I have full hope they would surpass all expectations. The good work done by NSC team is commendable. Their unconditional love in moulding these children is a treat to the eyes and my best wishes to all."

Revolutionary New Book “It Was Always Me Edward Edwards The Most Prolific Serial Killer of All Time” Names One Man Responsible For The Zodiac, and Other Murders

ReelTime Media (OTCMKTS:RLTR)

Rolling Stone has been a cornerstone of entertainment news for longer than I can remember. Although not on the “cover” it is truly a thrill to get your project featured in this iconic magazine.”

— CEO Barry Henthorn

SEATTLE, WA, USA, May 22, 2018 / — ReelTime (OTCPK:RLTR) Rolling Stone Magazine commended ReelTime author and veteran detective John Cameron for his sincerity in an article titled “Inside One Man’s Serial-Killer Unification Theory” reviewing the chilling documentary series “It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards” which aired it’s Finale on The Paramount Network last night which John stars in.
The show and book examine Cameron’s discovery that one man, Edward Edwards may have been responsible for many of the high-profile murders over the past 60 years. These include murders by The Zodiac Killer, and the murders of JonBenet Ramsay, The Black Dahlia, Tracy Halbach, Laci Peterson, and many others. Some of which are still unsolved, yet others convicted and, in some cases, even executed innocent men.
Rolling Stone also concludes that there is actual hard evidence presented by Cameron that Edwards Killed even more people and he is not alone in this belief. One of those cases is the 1960 stabbing deaths of Larry Peyton and Beverly Allan which took place in Portland, Oregon. It was featured in the final episode of “It Was Him” which aired last night. Edwards was seen hanging around the crime scene, with a bullet wound in his arm, that police suspected was related to a bullet hole in the couple's windshield. Police even arrested him, but he escaped before he could be questioned – and for some reason, they didn't pursue him. Meanwhile, two other men were convicted for the murders and sentenced to life in prison – but they were both released within just a few years, without explanation. Both had long insisted they were innocent. Cameron hopes to officially exonerate them, and he makes a compelling argument for why the Peyton/Allan case should be reexamined.
The article also presents some equally outlandish dismissals of Johns work, which helps people to understand how much scrutiny and disdain is held by those whose own theories of these cases are challenged to the core by Cameron’s discoveries and interactions directly with Edwards.
The new book “It Was Always Me – Edward Edwards The Most Prolific Serial Killer of All Time” can be purchased by viewers at or at other online book stores. Camerons research and evidence presented in his book, has recently gained national exposure in In Touch Magazine, and in People Magazine spawning a six-part series based on the book which aired on The Paramount Network (formerly Spike) sparking perhaps the single most controversial discoveries in criminal history.
Although Ed Edwards was convicted of only 5 murders the discoveries presented in the book have led many to believe that the spree could have exceeded 60 people spanning over 60 years including many of the most famous murders of all time.
Veteran Detective/Author John Cameron exclaimed: “I am grateful that Rolling Stone helped make people aware of the discoveries linking Edwards to so many murders. I hope that from the exposure and onslaught of new tips that these and other crimes can finally be solved. ”
Barry Henthorn ReelTime CEO stated: “Rolling Stone has been a cornerstone of entertainment news for longer than I can remember. Although not on the “cover” it is truly a thrill to get your project featured in this iconic magazine.”

"Willow of Ashes", Book I of the NecroSeam Chronicles

"Orbs of Azure", Book II of the NecroSeam Chronicles

Book II, “Orbs of Azure”

Ellie Raine, Fantasy Adventure Author

Announcing Ellie Raine's "Orbs of Azure". A Reaper’s soul trapped inside his twin, a Death Princess looking for him, and a dark prophecy yet to be fulfilled.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA , USA, May 18, 2018 / — ScyntheFy Press announces the publication of their latest book "Orbs of Azure", by Ellie Raine, a fresh new voice in High Fantasy. "Orbs of Azure" is the second book in the NecroSeam Chronicles, a unique epic fantasy series like no other! This original tale is set in an alternate world where reapers are honorable knights who protect both the living and the dead. These scythe-wielding warriors not only escort souls of dead to safety, but they are honor-bound to kill the demons formed from corpses whose souls have been left to rot.

In Book I, “Willow of Ashes”, an apprentice Reaper named Xavier with necromantic powers becomes trapped inside his twin brother after he is flung into the ocean. The coexisting necromancers surface up from their home in the caverns of Grim to the Land Realm above in search of Xavier’s missing body, unexpectedly crossing paths with a sister reaper who was sent to find Xavier by a mysterious Oracle. But this realm is infested with soul-devouring demons, and armed with their crystal scythes, the reapers must survive an army of these nightmarish beasts along with bone-crushing dragons that have been awakened from their slumber.

In Book II, “Orbs of Azure”, the quest for Xavier’s body is put on hold when things escalate into full-out war. For the first time in centuries, knights of the Death Realm are forced to fight against living souls in a double-war with both demons and men. When their comrades are taken captive, the twins join Death Princess Willow on a rescue mission to free them from an impenetrable fortress high in the desert canyons, discovering new powers they never knew they had. Along the way, they encounter unexpected allies of different realms, all searching for the "shadowblood", a legendary hero who looks just like the twins… if they had been born as one.

Both Books of the NecroSeam Chronicles is available in all formats (Ebook, Paperback, Hardcover). You will find them in all bookstores, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple.

About Ellie Raine

Ellie Raine grew up in a family of book lovers, comic readers, and video gamers in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia where she always dreamed of making the next explosive game series that would catch fire like the Final Fantasy games, except hers would have darker themes that put the spotlight on her favorite fable: the Grim Reaper.

But that plan took a detour after she went to the Art Institute of Atlanta to make that dream happen. In the midst of her drawing classes, she made the mistake of taking a creative writing course from which there was no return. She'd always loved fantasy books much like her family (she had a thing for dragons particularly), but she never thought it would end up becoming her passion. Her ongoing Scythe-and-Sorcery book series, The NecroSeam Chronicles, was originally intended to be that explosive video game series, but she's found that the book adaptation is far more fulfilling and exciting.

In 2016, her first book in the series, Willow of Ashes, was published under Dark Oak Press, but was updated, expanded and republished under her indie imprint in 2018 along with the subsequent books in the on-going series. The third book in the NecroSeam Chronicles, Pearl of Emerald, is due to be released in July 2018. Her other works include a supernatural-noir novella titled Nightingale that was published with Pro Se Productions in 2018.

Technology has the potential to transform education by extending the learning space beyond the four walls of a classroom. Although brick-and-mortar schools will continue to play a leading role in education over the coming decades, technology offers a variety of learning opportunities beyond the physical limits of school.

With the current accelerated growth in mobile devices, there is already an emergence of flexible, open learning environments that enable contextual, real-time, interactive and personalised learning. This year's Education Innovation Summit will explore all the possibilities and opportunities which technology creates in the educational environment.

1. How assistive technology is changing special education.
2. Fees must fall: Innovative education funding models using technology.
3. Overcoming barriers to tech adoption in education.
4. Change management: Administrators and educational technologies – narrowing the divide.
5. Fostering creativity by introducing design thinking to the educational process.
6. Practical challenges of digital learning: getting the balance right for future-thinking.
7. Transforming education: the power of ICT policies.
