MINNEAPOLIS, MN, USA, June 20, 2019 / — The Transportation Marketing & Sales Association (TMSA) announces the recipients of the 2019 TMSA Marketing and Sales Executives of the Year. Receiving this prestigious award is one of the highest honors bestowed on an individual within the North American freight transportation and logistics industry.

Both individuals were honored last week at the TMSA Logistics Marketing & Sales Conference near Jacksonville, Fla.
Justin Hall was named the 2019 TMSA Marketing & Sales Executive of the Year because of his leadership, efforts and results as chief customer officer at YRC Worldwide.

Small town musician goes viral with his new hit single “Family”

Patrick Nelson also known as Mute Davinci

Mute Davinci’

Patrick Nelson aka Mute Davinci

Patrick Nelson, known to most as Mute Davinci creates an international buzz from a small town in the state of Tennessee.

"There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see."

— Leonardo Da Vinci

CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES, June 20, 2019 / — Chattanooga Tennessee, United States: We are honored to release the artist Mute Davinci and his new hit single “Family”. This release that directly lined up with plans of some other major industry artists had us all wondering, just where did this young man come from? The answer is something that we had to find out by interviewing Mr. Patrick Nelson or “Mute Davinci” as he goes by on stage.
Over the years we have been in contact with the young man, Mute Davinci has definitely grown as an artist, we asked him what the first song he had ever made was. His reply was to email us an absolutely professional mixed and mastered track in which he said no one had ever heard but himself. Personally, with the lyrics in the song, the friend that was on it, and what had happened shortly after it was completed I could undoubtedly understand why. He mentioned that he may release the song one day but he could no longer listen to it at this time. At this point, I could most definitely tell that this kid here had something on his mind bothering him, and I do mean bothering him. He was almost something I would consider emotionless as he spoke on the track.
This artist had inspired me already at this point, I had to step up my professional face and take off my personal one. The amount of adaptation and pure adult in the man captured me from this point forward as well. He completely grabbed the previous energy he had right back and continued like there was absolutely nothing that could slow him down. This release is to showcase his new track “Family” though, featuring another Chattanooga artist, this artists name is Matt Movin’, a long time entity within the local music industry.
To listen to the hit single family or learn more about Mr. Mute Davinci, please visit:
The song “Family” shows a lot of inspiration being pulled from artists like Future, Lil Wayne, Lil Baby, and J Cole in my opinion. The part of the hook that was most striking to me was “spin a block cut up laughing we damaged.” When asked about this, Mr. Mute Davinci stated that he meant no matter what he did while in the mindset he was previously stuck in, as long as he had his friends to go home and “kick it” with everything they had ever done was otherwise irrelevant. This meant whatever was on his mind at that time was virtually avoided with his family around him.
Every song by Mute Davinci has an element of surprise to it, trust me, just listen to his lyrics closely and you will be surprised at the pure lyricism he has versus this current generation of artists. He doesn’t just entertain his audience, he also provokes an almost visual element with his lyrics that he said was like “ painting a vivid picture or decoding something insane” hence the Davinci I’m guessing. This helps the audience connect with the artist in an entirely different way and it somewhat reminds me of the way a jazz musician, or maybe an old rat pack type artist would convey their music.
Mute has an outstandingly unique approach with “Family” stating that the plan of this song was for him to come from a “grown but wild” way of thinking on the hook, coming from an almost teenage “hot boy” standpoint in his verse, and Matt comes in with a later, “more mature” verse throughout the whole situation. Even though this song was made for the streets and the struggle I feel as if almost anyone could relate.
Mute has been recognized already on multiple major news outlets. Outlets including Google News, Yahoo News, Bing News, Local news such as his hometowns’ very own WRCB, Telemundo, and many many more. You can check Mute Davinci out on all major digital platforms today. He stated that the video he uploaded got over 35,000 views with independent social media promotion, in-person promotion, and promotion through one of his “peoples’” connections. Hilariously, when I asked who these people were he decided to say “I’ ma have to Lil Baby on Vlad you with that one and say exactly.” He wanted to let everyone know that all support is greatly appreciated and he encouraged supporters to go follow him on Instagram. Also, he wanted to let Instagram users know that if they recorded a story post-playing any of his music and sent it to his direct messages that he would give them a shoutout to his over 70,000 followers. Anyone who specifically recorded using Instagrams’ music feature on their story posts would receive a little something extra too. I’m still not very sure what he meant by that statement, he seemed very enthusiastic to me though. I would like to personally thank Mr. Davinci for his time. I would also like to tell the viewers of this article that going to listen to the new song “Family” is most definitely a must. Mute Davinci is currently unsigned, and seriously, I cannot begin to grasp why. This kid took over Google, local news, international news, piqued my interest within 5 minutes of conversation, and did all of this on his own, from a town otherwise labeled a classic within the music industry. I hope all of you have a wonderful day, links to the music will be placed throughout this article and below.

Scandalous Skankfest Alt Comedy Festival Kicks Off Weekend with The SDR Show ElimiDick and Naked Roast Battle

Alt Comedy Festival Skankfest Kicks Off This Weekend at The Brooklyn Bazaar

This Weekend The Brooklyn Bazaar Celebrates Freedom of Speech and Expression with a Three-Day Comedy Party

Dr. Andrea Luoma of Accommodare Consulting to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

PORT ANGELES, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, June 20, 2019 / — Our shelves are filled with self-help books. Our phones are filled with TED Talks. But what does anybody do differently? Not much.

Long-term, sustainable change most often happens only for three reasons: a birth, a death or a life-altering illness or accident. Beyond that, we are who we are, and the default mechanism of our brain is to go negative, because it keeps us safe.

No, change is not easy. In fact, it’s nearly impossible. But adaptation is possible. It’s something we do every day. If we can redirect the energy of our capacity to adapt, perhaps we can get closer to the leader we hope to be and the relationships we hope to build.

The Latin word “accommodare” means “adapt.” Dr. Andrea Luoma is an executive coach and founder of Accommodare Consulting, where she provides neuroscience-based communication and leadership consulting and coaching.

“My full belief is we don't really change, though we can become more of who we are” says Dr. Luoma. “I encourage people to not even use the word because it puts the brain in a fear state. It’s more about choosing to adapt, discover or experiment, which makes chosen alterations much more digestible, doable.”

Dr. Luoma works primarily with CEOs and other senior leaders, directors or managers to reimagine conversation and upgrade the conversation level of the whole organization.

“The reality is everybody needs to have better conversations and relationships,” says Dr. Luoma. “If you treat people with dignity and respect, give them the resources to do their job, and support them, people will want to perform, but too often we're catching people doing things wrong rather than encouraging them to do things right. Where's the creativity, the aspiration, the dreaming? With every conversation, conscious or unconsciously, you pull people toward you or you push them away. We've got to be aware of it and conscious of it and work toward it.”

Dr. Luoma’s approach is based on the latest neuroscience that says traditional feedback puts a person into protect and defend mode and the effects of the release of the stress hormone cortisol can last up to 26 hours.

“Neuroscience is a game-changer,” says Dr. Luoma. “I'm not a neuroscientist, I do not purport to be one, but I know how to read research and apply it in an organizational context. This is the way of the future and it's going to turn everything on its head, from psychology, to business, to leadership, to relationships.”

Dr. Luoma says she comes from the perspective that we are all emotionally wired the exact same way. Her approach is to encourage people to understand how the brain and body work for and against us in conversations, an idea most people have never thought about. This learnable approach helps individuals gain awareness into themselves and what is happening in conversations that cause them to repel from one another or partner together.

“I’m most proud that I can help people truly alter their relationships with others as well as with themselves,” says Dr. Luoma. “And it doesn't take a lot. It doesn't take a lot at all.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Andrea Luoma an interview with Jim Masters on June 24th at 12pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on July 1st at 12pm EDT

பிரித்தானியாவில் விடுதலைப் புலிகள் மீதான தடைக்கு எதிராக நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் சட்டநடவடிக்கை

"பயங்கரவாதச் தடை சட்டத்துக்கு எதிரான முறையீட்டுக்கு என அமைக்கப்பட்ட, தற்சார்புத் தீர்ப்பாய ஆணையத்தின் முன் இந்த வாதங்கள் எடுத்துக் கொள்ளப்படும்"

விடுதலைப் புலிகள் மீதான தடை, ஜனநாயகரீதியாக செயற்படுகின்ற நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் செயற்பாடுகளுக்கும், ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்கள் தமது அரசியல் விருப்பினை சுதந்திரமாக வெளிப்படுத்துவதற்கும், தடையாக உள்ளது.”

— விசுவநாதன் உருத்திரகுமாரன்

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 20, 2019 / — தமிழீழ விடுதலைப் புலிகள் மீதான பிரித்தானாவின் தடைக்கு எதிராக, நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் சட்ட நடவடிக்கையொன்றினை முன்னெடுத்துள்ளது.

நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்க உறுப்பினர்கள் சார்பில் மட்ரிக்ஸ் (சேம்பர்ஸ் மற்றும் இலண்டன் பொருளியல் பயிலகத்தைச் – Matrix Chambers and the London School of Economics. ) சேர்ந்த பேராசிரியர் கானர் ஜியட்ரி ஆகியோர் வழக்கினை நடாத்துகின்றனர்.

நா.தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் உறுப்பினர்களுடன் மேலும் சிலரும் இந்த சட்ட நடவடிக்கையில் ஈடுபட்டுள்ளனர்.

வெடிப்பொருட்கள், கொடிகள் உள்ளிட்ட விடுதலைப் புலிகளை அடையாளப்படுத்தும் விடயங்களுடன், வாகனமொன்றையும் ஒருசிலரையும் தாம் கைது செய்ததாக, சிறிலங்கா காவல்துறை 2018ம் ஆண்டில் வெளியிட்டிருந்த செய்தியினை காரணமாக்காட்டி, விடுதலைப் புலிகள் மீதான தடைக்கு பிரித்தானிய உள்துறை அமைச்சகம் கோரியிருந்தது. வேறு எந்த தகவல்களும் பிரித்தானிய உள்துறை அமைச்சகத்திடம் காண்படவில்லை.

இந்நிலையில் விடுதலைப் புலிகள் மீதான தடை என்பது ஜனநாயகரீதியாக செயற்படுகின்ற நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் செயற்பாடுகளுக்கு பெரும் தடையாக இருப்பதோடு, ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்கள் தமது அரசியல் விருப்பினை சுதந்திரமாக வெளிப்படுத்துவதற்கும் அது இடைஞ்சலாகவுள்ளதென நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் தனது சட்டவாதத்தில் வாதிட்டுள்ளது.

மேலும் நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் வாதத்தில், சுதந்திரமும் இறைமையும் கொண்ட தமிழீழ அரசை அமைப்பதே தமிழீழ விடுதலைப் புலிகளின் அரசியல் இலக்காக இருந்தது. நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் அரசியல் இலக்கும் இதுவாகவே இருக்கின்றது.

பிரித்தானியாவின் தமிழீழ விடுதலைப் புலிகள் மீதான தடையினால், நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் அரசியல் செயல்முனைப்பில் பொதுமக்கள் பங்கேற்பதில் அச்சம் கலந்த பாதிப்பு ஏற்பட்டுள்ளது.
இது நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் அரசியல் பணியைப் பெருதும் பாதிக்கின்றது.

2009ம் ஆண்டு போரின் ஓய்வுக்கு பின்னராக இந்த பத்தாண்டு காலத்தில் விடுதலைப் புலிகள் எந்தவித வன்முறைச் சம்பவங்களிலும் ஈடுபடவில்லை இடித்துரைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.

தமிழீழ விடுதலைப் புலிகளை மீதான பிரித்தானியாவின் தடை என்பது, தமிழர்கள் அனைவரினதும் அரசியல் செயற்பாடுகளையும் அடக்கி ஒடுக்குவதே என்றும், இந்த நடைமுறைக்கே சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் ஊக்கமளிக்கிறது என்றும் நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் பிரதமர் விசுவநாதன் உருத்திரகுமாரன் அவர் இவ்விடயம் தொடர்பில் சுட்டிக்காட்டியுள்ளார்.

விசுவநாதன் உருத்திரகுமாரன் அவர்கள், விடுதலைப் புலிகள் மீதான அமெரிக்காவின் தடைக்கு எதிராக சட்டப் போராட்டம் நடத்தியவர் என்பதோடு, விடுதலைப் புலிகளின் சர்வதேச சட்ட ஆலோசகராக இருந்தர்.

பயங்கரவாதச் தடை சட்டத்துக்கு எதிரான முறையீட்டுக்கு என அமைக்கப்பட்ட, தற்சார்புத் தீர்ப்பாய ஆணையத்தின் முன் இந்த வாதங்கள் எடுத்துக் கொள்ளப்படும் என்பதோடு, விடுதலைப் புலிகளின் தடையினை நீக்கம் செய்யும்படி பிரித்தானிய உள்துறை அமைச்சகத்துக்கு ஆணையிடும் அதிகாரம் இந்த ஆணையத்துக்கு உண்டு.

பிந்திய தகவல்களின் படி, பிரித்தானிய உள்துறை அமைச்சகம் தம் வசமுள்ள சாட்சியங்களை இரகசியமான முறையில் இந்த ஆணையத்திடம் சமர்பிக்கவுள்ளதாக அறிவித்துள்ளது.

பிரித்தானிய உள்துறை அமைச்கத்தின் இந்த இரகசிய நடவடிக்கை என்பது சட்ட நடைமுறைகளுக்கும், மனித உரிமைகளுக்கும் முரணானது என வாதிட இருக்கின்ற நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம், இவ்விசாரணை வெளிப்படைத்தன்மையுடன் நடைபெற வேண்டும் என தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

Wild Eleven Starts Offshore Powerboat Season At Poole 100

The Windcraft racing team ran its first race of the season, entering its iconic 38-foot Cigarette Hawk, Wild Eleven, in the Offshore 1 class at Poole in Dorset.

Wild Eleven — a Cigarette Hawk — is a very stable and safe boat. I’ve got another Cigarette, an earlier and slightly shorter model, and the improvement in stability is remarkable.”

— Jerome Brarda

GREYSTONES, IRELAND, June 19, 2019 / — The Windcraft racing team participated in its first race of the offshore season, entering its iconic 38-foot Cigarette Hawk, Wild Eleven, in the Offshore 1 class at Poole in Dorset on Sunday 9 June.

The races that day were the first in the World Offshore Championship series organised by the UK Offshore Powerboat Racing Association (UKOPRA) over this summer, with further races in the series due in July off Guernsey and concluding in late August with contests over the long and challenging Torquay to Cowes course.

Driver Jerome Brarda and throttleman Eric Adam were joined by navigator Gordon Compton, a very experienced offshore racer who has competed in long endurance races such as the Round Britain powerboat race, London to Monte Carlo, and the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes circuit.

As they purchased Wild Eleven just last January, the team spent the months since preparing and tuning the machine, which is powered by two 700HP Mercury V8 engines.

Unfortunately, with just about ten minutes left in the 1.5-hour race, Wild Eleven suffered fuel pump difficulties and had to retire. But Brarda, whose involvement in the sport goes back to 1986, pronounced himself delighted with her performance.

“This is a very stable and safe boat,” he said. “I’ve got another Cigarette, an earlier and slightly shorter model, and the improvement in stability is remarkable.

“We’ll be properly ready for the next race on Guernsey once we sort out the fuel pumps, and I’ve no doubt this boat gives us an excellent chance of winning one or more races during the season. The engines ran beautifully and we are very happy with the boat's performance.”

Wild Eleven raced under the flag of Monaco, where she is registered. Brarda, who has a base in Florida, raced under the US flag, while Eric Adam flew the French tricolour and Gordon Thompson the Union Jack.

Adam’s involvement in motorsports spans more than 30 years, starting in powerboats in the Leader Offshore Racing team of the late ex-Formula 1 driver Didier Pironi, then in rallying, then managing a major car racing team with Ferrari in the prestigious World Endurance Championship. Taking on the role of throttleman with Windcraft marks his return to offshore powerboating.

The team will be back in action on 6 July, when the Guernsey Powerboat Association will host the Guernsey Gold Cup from the 5th to the 8th of the month.

Seven boats will contest Class 1, including Poole winner Tommy One, piloted by Maurizio Schepici and Giampaolo Montavoci. The 41-foot Metamarine-built craft is powered by Seatek engines developing the same horsepower as Wild Eleven’s Mercuries.

Windcraft's audiovisual media partner InterZone Pictures will begin filming at the next race off Guernsey early in July, and in the meantime Windcraft will set a date for Wild Eleven's first speed record attempt. The team will consider several possible routes, including Portsmouth (UK) to Cherbourg (France), Monte Carlo to St Tropez, or Monte Carlo to Cannes.

InterZone has several projects in development, including a biopic of a famous Irish revolutionary of the early twentieth century.

But we want to make some TV movies before getting deep into that. Which is why we are focused on filming Jerome Brarda's attempt on World Powerboat speed records both on European runs and those in, or off, the USA — and integrating the footage into our series of documentaries on the sport of offshore powerboat racing.

Mother's Child – The Nightmare Discovery of Mitochondrial Disease

A fictional retelling, of the factual events, of what it means for a family accused of child abuse.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED_STATES, June 19, 2019 / — Mother’s Child, by author and publisher Michael Conant, explores the challenges of a family with a child with an undiagnosed disease.

After serving as the president of CureMito, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting research and awareness of mitochondrial disease, Mr. Conant planned to write a scene for one of the board member’s daughters who attended an arts high school in Pomona, CA. Further discussion turned that project idea into a one-act play. After life got in the way, and the daughter graduated from high school, the project morphed into a book. Flash forward to after four years of procrastination, a year of thinking about it, and 18 months of writing, editing, and re-writing, and Mother’s Child finally came to fruition, launching in March of this year.

“I had the book in my head for four years. It bothered me that this promise had gone unfulfilled for so long and, after launching my publishing company and working with many talented editors and authors, I found I had run out of excuses for putting it off. Finally, I found the discipline to make it happen.” Said Mr. Conant.

The novel evolves around the fictional Gallagher family and is told through the voice of June Gallagher, the mother of Ernie, a child sick with many unidentified ailments. The story opens as June becomes a reluctant hero, saving a child from a burning car that is involved in a horrific accident. That opening scene proves poignant as much of the remainder of the book focuses on June, along with the rest of her family, husband Tim and daughter Elsie, as she tries desperately to save her son Ernie from an unknown disease.

As the novel continues, we share the family’s struggles with the disease, as well as with overly ambitious family services, interfering hospital staff, and a doctor who’s ignorance of mitochondrial disease leads to unfounded accusations of child abuse. As Mr. Conant notes, “The characters may be fictional, but the story accurately represents what too many families go through when their child is diagnosed with mitochondrial disease.”
Mr. Conant adds, “I wanted the novel to be a story about a family; about a woman finding her inner strength and voice, about developing friendship from unexpected places, and about the humor of life that goes on within the struggles of having a sick child. I wanted to write a story that anyone could identify with and that would stick to their hearts – not just a book about mitochondrial disease, but about life.”

Mother’s Child is available on Amazon, B&N, Indie Bound, and most book retailers.
