Since she was four years old, Melissa had accepting pain and sickness as part of her day to day reality.

“I had been in a constant state of difficulty. It was a downward spiral of domino effects pushing me deeper and deeper into a place I didn’t want to be,” recalls Melissa. “I dug myself out of that. Now I have a quality of life I never knew existed. I went from being disempowered to being empowered to make my own choices and take control of my journey.”

Melissa’s transformation began when she discovered lymphatic system cleansing. As a Certified X'Tract Bodywork Specialist (CXS) Melissa employs the patented X'Tract Bodywork technique, applying comfortable pressure to your skin to move lymphatic fluid through your valves and into your lymph nodes to stimulate your body's immune system.

“My lymphatic system had been clogged. I had over 30 years of old trash backed up,” recalls Melissa. “Once I began cleaning that system, my body healed itself. That's where I am today, with the health and well-being I desired.”

With Roots 2 Wings Transformations, Melissa offers the same passion of her own transformation to her clients.

“After going through what I went through, I acquired the tools, resources and the ability to help others transform their own lives and achieve sustainable health,” says Melissa. "Together we share in transformation!”

Rent What? Inc. Announces Newest Grand Drape Set Dubbed 'Dark Angel' Now Available for Rent

Rent What? Inc. president, Megan Duckett, announces the newest addition to the firm's rental drapery inventory, a grand drape set dubbed, "Dark Angel".

RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, CA, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rental drapery provider, Rent What? Inc., located in Rancho Dominguez, CA , is happy to announce the newest addition to their rental drapery inventory, dubbed "Dark Angel". The specialty grand drape set is now available for one-time performances, concerts or longer tour rentals.

Rent What? president Megan Duckett states, "We feel this rental drape provides the same beauty and "wow factor" as our Crimson Cabaret Grand drape set in our Timeless and Traditional Drapery Collection. It combines unique design with versatility. The dramatic look lends itself to use in a wide variety of concert set designs in genres ranging from hard rock to pop to country, depending on the design of the additional set elements."

The set includes two bi-parting drapes (making up a Grand Traveler approximately 60' wide). Its design features a sexy, sparkling combination of Black 15oz Encore fabric adorned with Silver Illusion, Black Chrome Illusion, Silver Bullion Fringe, and most dramatically, a repeated "angel wing" motif in rhinestone applique. Sister company Sew What? Inc. designed and manufactured the rental drape set.

The Dark Angel drape set was recently showcased at a photo and video shoot in Los Angeles, California. The firm's management felt, "where better to display the drape set than the theatre of the historic Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, a delicately restored, 1,600-seat movie palace from the 1920s?"

The Theatre at Ace Hotel showcases a grand entrance, leading to the intricately detailed theater with a vaulted ceiling with thousands of tiny mirrors that glimmer when lit. The theatre’s awe-inspiring craftmanship is truly a true feast for the eyes and the creative spirit – which according to Rent What? president Duckett is not unlike the new "Dark Angel" grand drape set. Duckett predicts, "I'm sure that this amazing rental drapery set will be flying out the doors in the upcoming tour season."

Rent What? additionally has a variety of other rental options, including specialty drapery, masking drapes, lift systems, hardware and automation equipment, and pipe and drape, making it a popular rental provider for promoters and organizers.

History Publishing Company to Distribute Book on Declassified Files

Prize winning book based on declassified U.S.Government files to undergo electronic distribution to eleven countries

It is the kind of history that you will only find in the deepest part of the archive.”

— Herbert Werlin PhD World Bank Research

PALISADES, NY, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Think a little James Bond on his first assignment, Indiana Jones on any of his, and include a great deal of reality and you have "Legerdemain."

"Legerdemain," nominated by the Harry Truman Presidential Library for "Book of the Year" in 2008, is being released on April 25 in HPC’s Global Reach Program. Subtitled "The President’s Secret Plan, The Bomb, And What the French Never Knew" is the story based on the declassified file "Operation Camelback."

Author James Heaphey writes of his experience as an undercover operative for the U.S. Air Force during the height of the Cold War when the threat of nuclear retaliation against the Soviet Union was the principal tactic for preventing war. The French Empire was crumbling, nationalists and Communists were both agitating to take control of Morocco in North Africa. Critical to American interests there, just outside Casablanca, was an air base necessary to refuel the retaliatory bombers and load up on atomic warheads. President Harry Truman had to act to safeguard the base, and without French knowledge work to aid the nationalists take control of the country. Author James Heaphey was part of the team sent to make that happen. And of that happening World Bank Researcher Herbert Werlin wrote “ It is the kind of history that you will only find in the deepest part of the archive."

James Heaphey is a professor emeritus at the Graduate School of Public Affairs at the State University of New York and holds a doctorate in Political Science from the University of California at Berkeley. He has directed political development programs in Brazil, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon and South Korea. He resides with his wife in Williamsburg, Virginia.

History Publishing Company a traditional book publisher with a strong American History title list has stepped into the future and settled in front of the curve in the changing publishing industry by initiating a cyber- first platform called "Global Outreach."

The English speaking countries are the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Wales, Australia, Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

‘Youths Should Be More Involved In Transforming Nigeria’

Chinonso Izuka

A staff of Sahara Group, Africa’s leading energy and infrastructure conglomerate, Chinonso Izuka is blessed with a gift that brings melody to the hearts of many

LAGOS, LAGOS, NIGERIA, March 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — A staff of Sahara Group, Africa’s leading energy and infrastructure conglomerate, Chinonso Izuka is blessed with a gift that brings melody to the hearts of many. It’s a uniquely textured powerful voice. She’s the voice behind the #NigeriaStartsWithMe theme song and her vocal chords have the potential to propel her to global stardom. The #NigeriaStartsWithMe initiative is one which seeks to rally young people to own major stakes in efforts aimed at transforming Nigeria. In this interview, Chinonso speaks passionately about her dream for a new Nigeria and expresses her desire to see the song ignite creativity, innovation and a sense of patriotism in Nigerian youths.

Q: What is the #NigeriaStartsWithMe initiative about?

C: The #NigeriaStartsWithMe initiative is a drive geared towards rallying Nigerian youths to develop practical and innovative ideas that would enhance the transformation of our country Nigeria. It is a movement to instill a desire for innovation, creativity and patriotism. It is an innovative dive to revive the Nigerian dream and place it in the hands of our youths who are Nigeria’s future. I am passionate about the initiative and see myself as an ambassador of everything great we want to see happen in Nigeria. I am so happy that Sahara Group where I work is championing this cause as it has given me a platform to contribute meaningfully to the initiative. That new Nigeria we all seek is attainable; but to realise the dream, it must start with each one of us; especially the young people who will occupy leadership positions in Nigeria in the coming years and decades.

Q: How did you get the inspiration to write and sing the #NigeriaStartsWithMe theme song?

C: The actual origin of the theme song is from a song I composed for my organisation, the Sahara Group late last year which I sang at our 20th Anniversary End of Year Party in Abuja. When we flagged off the #NigeriaStartsWithMe initiative in March 2017, I thought some aspects of the message in the song was appropriate for the campaign. After some tweaking, I came up with theme song. The inspiration came from my experience in Sahara where you’re driven to look inwards to come up with solutions that can change the world, whilst believing that it takes togetherness as well to achieve bigger and more sustainable goals. The song captures the essence of togetherness and deciding to give one’s best to Nigeria in spite of the seemingly insurmountable challenges we have as a nation. We are a creative and resilient people. In fact, each Nigerian has what it takes to come up with that idea or solution to our challenges as a nation. All we need is to see ourselves as agents of positive change. I believe the message of not giving up on Nigeria is one I had to share with every young Nigerian. It is disheartening to see brilliant youths being employed as trolls on the Social Media where they do the bids of people who would rather see Nigeria go under. We can direct our energies to confronting societal ills and contributing our quota to the development of our great nation. That’s the inspiration I hope the song transmits to every Nigerian – that at the end of it all, Nigeria starts with each one of us.

Q: What do you think are the issues that we need to urgently need to address in Nigeria?

C: I think the issues that need to be urgently addressed in the country are security issues in which I believe that there should be major investment in ICT, intelligent building management systems, audio-visual processing and transmission systems, network-based control and monitoring functions in order to enhance security in the country. Also, the defective educational system, health care, youth unemployment and poverty are critical issues that need to be addressed.

Q: What’s your impression of Nigerian music? Which aspects stand out the most for you and which areas do we need improvement?

C: I think the Nigerian music industry has evolved as a whole in recent times as diverse music genres are currently being accepted in the country. It a true mix of entertainment and culture.

Q: Who are the Nigeria musicians that you look up to for inspiration and why?

C: Wizkid is number one! He inspires me a lot because, besides his unadulterated talent and zeal for his career, he started from barely nothing years ago, pushed diligently all through the years and as we speak he’s the biggest Nigerian artist recognized in the world. Another Nigerian artist that inspires me is Tiwa Savage, I admire her drive and her as a person.

Q: How long have you been singing? What is your genre of music, have you recorded any tracks?

C: I have been singing since I got to be aware of myself, since I was a kid. I started singing and writing my own songs at an early age. However, professionally, I released my first official debut “Sunny Bobo” late 2014. I major in RnB, Afro Pop, and soft RAP music. I have my latest recording, “Escape” which is currently available in the market. It consists of an intro and 4 tracks on, with all songs written and composed by me. I also released a music video for “Sunny Bobo” which is being played on various platforms till date.

Q: Seeing that you currently work for Sahara Group are you considering going into full time music?

C: Music is a huge part of my being and I don’t see myself living without it, on the same page I love my career with Sahara Group so I take it a day at a time and observe how it would all unravel with time.

Q: If you were invited to perform at a national event in Aso Rock, which Nigerian artist’s song will you sing and why?

C: If invited for a National event in Aso Rock to perform, I would perform TY Bello’s “Green Land” because the song speaks positivity and fruitfulness. Something I believe #NigeriaStartsWithMe drives. I would definitely want to send a message across to the dignitaries that I have the opportunity and pleasure to entertain.

Q: What message do you have for Nigerian youths on how they can transform the nation?

C: Don’t wait for the government and anybody to set the platform for you. Take a step everyday towards your dreams and towards contributing to your environment positively. Every great movement and success starts with one step, one idea, one song, one meeting, one prayer, one partnership, one experiment, one speech, one invention, I could go on and on. It starts with a desire to stop whining and start seeing ourselves the solutions to challenges. The level of creativity being propelled by young people in Nigeria is amazing. You cannot imagine the impact we would have when we channel our creative energies into realizing the #NewNigeria dream – I can’t wait to live in that Nigeria!

Q: Every artiste aspires to make global impact. Do you see yourself gunning for the Grammys someday?

C: Most definitely! Lol….I will add that to my collection of something sparkly! We never say never at Sahara, so I will give my singing career my best shot. Beyond the Grammys, it is my desire to impact lives with my songs. That’s one achievement that will be invaluable to me.

Q: Anyone in your life right now? Wedding bells?
C: Hmmm… Let’s wait to see… hahaha

Boldly raises the bar for Craft Organic Tequilas

We make tequila the way that tequila was meant to be–pure, and free of chemicals, or any additives.”

— Erika Vargas Flores, GM, Altos Cienega Unidos

SAN ANTONIO, TX, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — For Immediate Release!

In early February, 2017, El Consuelo Blanco Tequila was bestowed a Gold Medal in Tequila Aficionado Media’s hotly anticipated 4th Annual 2016 Brands of Promise© Awards in the Certified Organic Tequila Category.

“We are flattered and humbled to receive this Brand of Promise Award from Tequila Aficionado,” said a spokesperson for Tequila Spirits, LLC, importer of El Consuelo.

“We felt the same way the judges did when we first tasted El Consuelo blanco,” continued the spokesperson. “We believe our small batch process produces the best tasting tequila in the world.”

Crafted by Altos Cienega Unidos (NOM 1570) in the village of Rancho Lagunillas nestled in Atotonilco El Alto, the prized Highlands Region of Jalisco, Mexico, it is a micro-distillery in the truest sense.

El Consuelo (meaning “to comfort” in Spanish) is produced with social consciousness to support the Mexican agave farmers and the community in which they live.

A union of over 20 dedicated growers supplies El Consuelo with the finest estate grown, lovingly cared for, and Certified Organic Tequilana Blue Weber Agave.

El Consuelo is Organically Certified under the strict, transparent and ethical standards set forth by Organic Certifying Agency, Mayacert.

Mayacert, has provided its services to small, medium and large farmers, processors and food exporters for the past fifteen years.

The leader in multi-certification systems, Mayacert is internationally accredited as an Organic Certifying Agency by both the European Union and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Every hand blown bottle of El Consuelo tequila proudly displays the USDA seal of approval ensuring that every step of its production process—from farm to glass—meets government guidelines for purity and wholesomeness.

El Consuelo is also Certified Kosher by Jay Kosher, widely recognized in the multinational Kosher certification field.

By all accounts, organic and kosher spirits consumption and awareness is on the rise in the United States and abroad.

The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) reports that the US is the global leader in tequila
consumption. Persistence Marketing Research depicts North America as the second largest consumer of kosher foods in the world.

Given these facts, Erika Vargas Flores, General Manager of Altos Cienega Unidos–one of a handful of women in management positions within the Tequila Industry–pursued both organic and kosher certifications “…to ensure El Consuelo’s rightful place in the highly competitive international Tequila market.”

These often overlooked and under-served spirits industry segments are poised to become worldwide, multi-billion dollar categories in just a few short years.

In preparation, Tequila Spirits, LLC has partnered with online retailer, Traino’s Wine & Spirits in New Jersey to meet the current overwhelming demand for award winning El Consuelo tequila.

“We make tequila the way that tequila was meant to be,” declares Vargas Flores, “pure, and free of chemicals, or any additives.”
