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...

After helping to end Nepal's civil war, Potentialism is poised to empower people, nations and organizations worldwide
In 2009, an economic development professor in Nepal contacted Ross Gray and Theresa Ruby, founders of GlobalHouse, for permission to found a chapter of their organization in Nepal and help introduce a new socioeconomic model, called Potentialism. The goal: to lay the groundwork for peace after a civil war that killed more than 15,000 people over a decade.
Despite a five-year ceasefire, Maoist rebels maintained approximately 19,000 heavily armed soldiers in 27 camps around the mountainous nation.

New platform allows web users and developers to share computer capacity in exchange for value-backed currency, on a blockchain alternative that won’t destroy the Earth or subject users to extreme volatility
Bitcoin and other popular blockchain technologies come with hidden flaws: they waste energy and are subject to massive volatility. As the cryptocurrency market cap races towards $1T, there are signs the blockchain method of peer-to-peer banking won’t be sustainable once it reaches regular consumer adoption. It’s not even sustainable today, despite making up only 0.1% of the traffic handled by a single major credit card processor.

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...

Making a Bigger Impact — Together
Seen by 135 million, these short films change our 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 $380 billion in annual U.S. charitable giving, only about 2% goes 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 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.

That’s why veteran CFO Fred Parrish founded The Profit Experts™ and created its new software solution, The Profit Beacon™ (TheProfitBeacon.com).

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...

The Gorge: Steepness Redefined
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.

Celebrating 50 Years of Wild & Scenic Rivers
Gearing up for the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act 2018 Anniversary
In the days of fur trappers and pioneers, free-flowing rivers were the lifeblood of commerce, transportation and fisheries across America. Today, they are critical yet often-overlooked sources of clean water, critical habitat, and rejuvenating recreation for Americans seeking a break from the frenetic world of technology and reconnection with the deep flow of time and nature.
Across the nation, river enthusiasts, communities and government agencies are preparing to celebrate wild rivers with the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act.
Congress passed this landmark legislation on Oct. 2, 1968, to preserve selected rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational values in a free-flowing condition for the enjoyment of present and future...
