The Safety Godmothers
New documentary “Beauty Bites Beast” empowers women’s self-defense and sparks “missing conversations” for preventing violence
Most of us have heard these statistics: the World Health Organization says 1 in 3 women worldwide experience sexual or physical violence, and 1 in every 6 women in America have been victims of sexual assault, including over 22 million women raped over their lifetime.
Why are so many of our sisters, wives, daughters and mothers targets for violence? Could it be because societies teach women and girls – and boys and men – that women are helpless? That they must depend upon males to protect them, rather than defend themselves?
Women and girls have a right to set boundaries – emotionally, verbally, and, if push comes to shove, physically. Teaching them that fact is one missing...

Advice from an Angel
Psychic Channeler Christina Hill Shares Angelic Wisdom from Healing Ascended Master Athella
Christina Hill was born with a heightened awareness of her intuitive abilities. As a young child, she could see, hear, feel and speak with spirit people and animals—those who had transitioned out of their physical bodies. She could also experience psychic impressions of people she encountered in life, often knowing a great deal about total strangers. For example, she could see where someone had been and where they were going.
At the age of five, she began assisting people during their dying process, supporting them as they crossed over. Those closest to her, however, told Christina that her gifts would only lead to eternal damnation so she hid her intuitive abilities away for much of her life.

The Inner Matrix
It’s easy for us to look at life and assess it in terms of the people we love, the roles we play, and the responsibilities we have. When we encounter challenges in these areas, all too often, we look for solutions outside of ourselves before looking within. Searching through the lens of outmoded thought and behavior patterns we may never have addressed (or even identified!) takes us on a fast track to repeating and reliving the very unhealthy behavior loops we most need to heal. So, how can we achieve our highest goals and best outcomes if there are internal struggles going on that keep us...

The Emotion Code: Future Medicine for Self-Healing Now
Maureen Kidd, RN, Unlocks Emotional Causes of Illness
Everyone struggles at some point with health issues, whether it's physical pain, excessive weight, depression, anxiety or the stress that so often leads to other problems. As a medical professional and certified Emotion Code practitioner, Maureen Kidd shares a groundbreaking do-it-yourself method to spark physical, mental and emotional self-healing.
A registered nurse, Maureen began exploring natural healing methods in the late 1970s. A few years ago she learned about The Emotion Code, the healing system developed by veteran holistic physician Dr. Bradley Nelson today being practiced around the globe. Dr. Brad created The Emotion Code to help people release trapped emotions – the unseen emotional baggage from traumatic experiences that leads to physical, mental and emotional illness.

Making a Bigger Impact—Together
Changing the conversation from
people OR animals to people AND animals
When most of us think of making charitable donations, we think first and foremost of making a positive impact on people in need. This is a natural and beautiful inclination! Sadly however, animal welfare doesn’t make many people’s donation list. Of $373 billion in charitable donations made in the U.S. in 2015, less than 1% went to animal-related causes.
What if we told you human welfare and animal welfare go hand in hand?
Mutual Rescue™ is a national initiative created by Humane Society Silicon Valley to change the conversation around animal welfare. You’re not only saving animal lives when you donate to a local animal shelter, you are helping to transform the lives of people in your community for the better...
NovaVision: Restoring Vision for Life
Company provides clinically supported therapies for the rehabilitation of visual impairments caused by stroke or other brain injury
There are approximately 8 million stroke survivors in the U.S., with 795,000 strokes a year, and approximately 1.5 million suffering some sort of traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually. Staggeringly, up to approximately 30% of these suffer a resultant visual impairment, up to 20% permanently.
Substantial numbers of Americans therefore suffer from a visual disability resulting from neurological brain damage. This disability has a dramatic effect on their daily lives, and can prevent them from working, driving, reading, shopping, crossing a road or staying home alone without help.
NovaVision's portfolio of therapies is specifically targeted to help these people, to both restore and compensate for this type of vision disability, which in the...
America's Financial Investigator
NY Times Bestselling Author Pamela Yellen shows how to grow and protect your financial future with guaranteed, secure savings
Wall Street lost more than 49 percent of the average investor's savings twice since 2000. As a result, many Americans have no clue when or if they will ever be able to retire.
Pamela Yellen, a New York Times bestselling author and financial investigator, knows these concerns. Like most Americans, she followed the conventional wisdom of investing in stocks and mutual funds, only to see her savings vanish. So she took matters into her own hands.
As a consultant to more than 40,000 financial advisors over more than 20 years, Pamela investigated more than 450 financial products and strategies. She concluded that Americans are being brainwashed into accepting they have to risk their...

Igniting the Powur of the Crowd
Jonathan Budd and Powur are building an army of “Solar-preneurs” to crowdsource rooftop solar, halt carbon-based climate change and accelerate the shift to a new global energy paradigm
The one thing humans need to survive, besides oxygen, water, food and shelter, is energy. A $6 trillion/year industry, energy is poised to grow by 80 percent through 2040 as China and India adopt modern living standards. Yet our energy infrastructure is built on an outdated centralized grid and dirty fossil fuels, pushing us ever closer to an “irreversible tipping point” of climate change with unknown consequences.
“We are rolling the dice on what the earth is going to look like 50 years from now and if it will be habitable,” says Jonathan Budd, who is working to expand solar...
Custom CFO Solutions for Small Business
The Profit Experts™ helps businesses identify and solve profit leaks and gives them “actionable intelligence” to grow and thrive
About half of small businesses fail in the first five years and only about a third survive 10 years or longer, according to the Small Business Administration. One of the biggest reasons: they run out of money.
Many companies use accounting tools such as QuickBooks™ or hire a CPA to track their finances and pay their taxes. But these do not provide the expertise and foresight that a Chief Financial Officer can to preserve cash flow and make smart capital decisions. That’s why veteran CFO Fred Parrish founded The Profit Experts™ and created its new software solution, The Profit Beacon™ (TheProfitBeacon.com).
During a 37-year career, Fred has held positions from...

Real Estate, Real Simple
A real estate expert & consumer advocate, Rhonda lifts the veil on her industry to change the way real estate is done
The head of a national consumer advocacy group once described the real estate business as a “cartel” that sets prices and blocks competition to maintain high commissions. “In no other important consumer service industry are prices and services so opaque,” Steven Brobeck of the Consumer Federation Foundation said in a 2006 testimony before government anti-trust regulators.
You might not expect to hear that quote from the woman ranked #1 Agent in the U.S. for resales three years in row, but Rhonda Duffy is no ordinary real estate broker. Ranked the top real estate agent for sold properties in Georgia for 12 years running, Rhonda has become the media’s...

Were men joined in a matrimonial “brotherhood” by the Orthodox Church?
The question of LGBT relationships is a growing concern for all Christian churches, not just Orthodox.

New Zip Line Drops Thrill-Seekers 1,100 Vertical Feet into Green River Gorge
Zip lines are exploding in popularity across America, with the number of these high-flying thrill rides soaring from 10 in 2001 to more than 200 today. Unique among zip lines is a new 1¼-mile extreme course called The Gorge located on 125 wild acres just off Interstate 26 near Saluda, N.C.

Helping America’s high-achieving students fulfill their dreams
High-achieving high school students often do not get the support they should in school. Education reforms such as No Child Left Behind “created strong incentives for schools to focus all their energy on helping low-performing students get over a modest ‘proficiency’ bar,” but “ignored the educational needs of high achievers,” according to the report High Stakes for High Achievers.
The National Leadership Academies is working to change that by inspiring and equipping top students for the future. Through its Congress of Future Medical Leaders and Congress of Future Science & Technology Leaders, annual gatherings that expose students to top leaders in their fields, young people from across America are getting the skills, motivation, guidance and mentorship they need to achieve their goals.
