Enjoy Summer Camp and Sharpen Skills with Brainfuse, Entirely Online!

Brainfuse Summer Skills Camp

Brainfuse Reviews Offers Focus on Skills to Avoid Loss of Academic Skills During Summer

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, USA, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — During the summer months, Brainfuse offers a unique online summer skills camp to keep kids’ brains sharp through the long summer months. Just because ice cream cones are melting doesn’t mean kids’ brains should be getting mushy as well!

Brainfuse Reviews is one of the nation’s leading online tutoring providers, serving students of all ages. The summer camp is tailored to elementary, middle school and high school students. Classes offered include math, science, social studies and language arts.

Brainfuse offers real-time online tutoring and career assistance from expert instructors. It is available in libraries, schools, higher education institutions and workforce centers throughout the United States and Canada. But Brainfuse Reviews is not just for tutoring during the school year! Skills Camp from Brainfuse seeks to avoid “summer slide,” when students lose academic skills over the summer, which is one of the most significant causes of the academic achievement gap.

Skills Camp does not provide a comprehensive survey of each academic topic, however, or overwhelm students with information. Rather, Brainfuse uses Skills Camp to focus on areas that are academically significant, areas that generated the most tutoring questions over the course of the school year and topics that do not require a significant time commitment over summer vacation.

For students who do want a comprehensive survey of an academic topic, Brainfuse offers SkillSurfer, which fills that need. Skills Camp focuses on letting students spend a small amount of time on academics during the summer, which research has shown makes a difference when they go back to school in the fall.

With the Brainfuse Online Summer Skills Camp, students can take part in lessons, activities, games and flashcards, which are designed to make learning fun. Students aren’t stuck sitting in front of a computer for most of the day when they’d rather be outside. Rather, this Brainfuse Reviews program lets students learn the most important information in small, digestible chunks.

Much of the content has a button at the top that allows users to connect with a live tutor, use the writing lab or send in a question to Brainfuse instructors. There is also a section for parents to help their children with summer learning, so parents can be part of the process and make learning fun for the whole family.

Additionally, the Brainfuse Summer Skills Camp offers test prep classes, so if your child is taking the PSAT, SAT, ACT or AP classes soon, they can sharpen their skills from the comfort of home and feel prepared when test day comes. Visit brainfuse.com to learn more.

Dr. Muhammed Niaz MD Becomes DOT Examiner for OTR Truck Drivers

Dr. Muhammed Niaz MD

NEWARK, DELAWARE, USA, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Muhammed Niaz MD applies scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of his many patients. Recently, to help certify over-the-road (OTR) truck drivers for work, he has earned certification as an official examiner with the Department of Transportation.

Dr. Muhammed Niaz MD is a renowned physician who has earned many certifications and accreditations in his professional career. Currently he serves as a Diplomat of the American Board of both Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine in addition to serving as a Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management. He’s a certified clinical densitometrist and Fellow of the American College of Physicians as well.

Dr. Niaz earned the Best Research Award of 1996 during his internal medicine residency program in Washington, DC for his work on “Thrombosis in Acute Coronary Syndrome.”
He’s a recipient of the National Leadership Award and serves as Honorary Co-Chairman of the Physician Advisory Board.

“My mission is to improve the health of individuals through excellence in patient care,” says Dr. Dr. Muhammed Niaz MD. “I’ve always strived to provide only top-quality healthcare and constantly seek out new ways to share my understanding of health and medicine with others.”

Recently, Dr. Niaz has extended his expertise to the Department of Transportation, where he oversees medical certification for OTR truck drivers. In order to drive commercial motor vehicles, busses, and other heavy machinery, drivers first must undergo medical examinations to determine if they are fit to be an operator. The DOT achieves this by enlisting the help of medical examiners like Dr. Muhammed Niaz MD who have completed training and the certification required. These physicians measure the physical fitness and the overall well-being of each driver in an effort to keep the roads safer.

The trucking industry is often called the backbone of America since many daily needs across the country are fulfilled by the loads they carry. However, because the vehicles they drive are so massive and heavy, drivers must prove that their medical standing won’t get in the way of their performance.

Not everyone can become a medical examiner for the DOT; they must first meet exemplary requirements and train under the department’s standards. After, they must complete the FMCSA Medical Examiner Certification Test, which includes FMCSA-specific information and knowledge about the requirements of commercial motor vehicle drivers and their positions.

Once completing requirements, DOT Certified Medical Examiners retain their certification for a decade. However, they are likely required to undergo periodic training every 5 years to ensure they are up-to-date with standards and changes in the industry, dedicating themselves to an expanding knowledge base.

“As a certified examiner, I exercise my medical understanding to protect America’s highways and ensure this vital system runs as safely and efficiently as possible,” says Dr. Muhammed Niaz MD.

Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition

Andre DiMino is host of The ONE VOICE Minute Videos

Andre DiMino

IAOVC gives facts about the Italian American experience with a “bite-sized” video feature on US holidays and events, this one featuring the 4th of July.

BLOOMFIELD, NJ, USA, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition (“ONE VOICE”), America’s largest independent Italian American anti-bias organization, continues its new initiative to bring interesting facts about the Italian American experience in America with concise, interesting and fact-filled videos. Dubbed “The ONE VOICE Minute” the second edition, released today, concerns America’s Independence Day.

Each year on the Fourth of July we celebrate the day America declared its independence back on July 4th, 1776. On Independence Day we remember the many Italians who were instrumental in the founding of the United States of America. Among them one who called Thomas Jefferson, and all the Founding Fathers, friends and helped to coin an iconic line in the Declaration of Independence. A line that is still repeated today. This and other facts about the Italian American connection to Independence Day are featured in this second edition of The ONE VOICE Minute.

“Our first ONE VOICE Minute about Memorial Day, was very well received and we were very pleased to receive so many positive comments. This is a great way for us to feature important facts and information about Italian Americans that may not be widely known,” stated Dr. Manny Alfano, Founder and President of IAOVC.

The videos, written and produced by Frank Cipolla, are hosted by Andre’ DiMino, Executive Board Member of IAOVC, who regularly appears on TV and radio interviews representing ONE VOICE in its efforts at fighting stereotyping and denigration of Italian Americans, most recently in opposing the elimination of Columbus Day.

“I am honored to host The ONE VOICE Minute series and bring the facts about how Italian Americans have contributed so much to this country throughout history,” stated DiMino.

The ONE VOICE Minute on Independence Day is at YouTube at https://youtu.be/TV45rsWSD0Y

ONE VOICE is different from all other Italian American groups in that its sole focus and objective is to educate and fight bias, stereotyping and discrimination against Italian Americans.

ONE VOICE issues a regular email newsletter, “The Alfano Digest,” to more than 5,000 individuals and Italian American organizations nationwide. Written and compiled by Dr. Manny Alfano, Founder and President of ONE VOICE, the Digest issues alerts on instances of bias, stereotyping, discrimination and defamation and activates the ONE VOICE nationwide network of “Defenders” who respond through calls, emails, faxes, letters and demonstrations where necessary. The Digest also contains informative Italian American cultural and heritage information. To receive the Digest, email Dr. Alfano – mannyalfano@comcast.net.

Clearwater Community Volunteers Center Combines the Pleasure of Music with Philanthropy for Foster Kids

The CCV Center, in partnership with CBA Tampa Bay, is hosting a fundraising concert with international performer Judy Bachar, pictured above. Proceeds from the concert will buy school supplies for Pinellas County foster children.

Studies have shown that children with their own school supplies improve their attitudes towards learning as they are not dealing with the stress of feeling left out or ‘less-than’ other students.”

— Lynn Posyton, Community Relations Dir, CBA Tampa Bay

CLEARWATER, FL, US, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hundreds of Pinellas County youth will be able to take one more step toward school readiness on Sunday June 30th when the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center, in partnership with the Concerned Businessmen’s Association of Tampa Bay, will host a fundraising concert at their downtown Clearwater Center. The concert features international vocalist, Judy Bechar. There is no cost to attend but guests are encouraged to buy tickets for prize drawings. Proceeds will purchase school supplies for the foster kids as part of the CCV Center’s “Back-2-School” drive which will end in a final event on July 27th.

Ms. Bechar, from Israel, sings in six different languages including French and Russian. In a strong, enchanting voice, she delivers the music of cultures from all over the world – opera, jazz, country and more.

“With Ms. Bechar’s help we will be able to provide foster children with the school supplies they will need this year”, said Lynn Posyton, Community Relations Director of the Concerned Businessmen’s Association of Tampa Bay. “Studies have shown that children with their own school supplies improve their attitudes towards learning as they are not dealing with the stress of feeling left out or ‘less-than’ other students.”

“Children are our society’s tomorrow.” said Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center. “Unfortunately, not every child is afforded the supplies that he or she needs to start school. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard wrote ‘Today’s children will become tomorrow’s civilization. Children can’t handle their environment and they have no real resources. They need love and help to make it.”

Additional artists from the community are welcome to perform family-friendly music after Ms. Bechar’s performances.

To RSVP for the event or reserve the center for your nonprofit’s activities, call (727) 316-5309 or email ccvcenter@ccvfl.org. Visitors are also invited to tour the center at 133 N. Fort Harrison, Clearwater, FL 33755.

About the Clearwater Community Volunteers:

Sponsored by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization, they stay true to their reputation of helping others with their new center located on the corner of Fort Harrison Avenue and Drew Street in downtown Clearwater.

The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay Spreads Calm in Orlando

On June 18, young ladies shared The Way to Happiness booklets with hundreds of Amway Center rally attendees in the city of Orlando

As impossible as it may seem to stop the violence, discrimination and divisiveness in society today, The Way to Happiness booklet offers a solution.”

— Tanja Cranton, ED of TWTH Association of Tampa Bay

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, USA, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the aim of keeping Orlando free from violence at the June 18th Amway Center rally in Orlando, volunteers from The Way to Happiness Association (TWTH) Tampa Bay distributed hundreds of The Way to Happiness booklets, a nonreligious moral code written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, among the 20,000 people gathered there. For several decades, TWTH volunteers have been on a mission to improve neighborhoods and reduce crime, achieving success in many countries throughout the world according to TWTH.

One example they cited: TWTH booklets were distributed to every household of one Florida neighborhood and in just one year crime fell in the once beleaguered area by over 70%. Another example given was in in Los Angeles, where, to reduce gang activity, TWTH volunteers removed graffiti from 130 buildings while passing out thousands of copies of the booklet, with a consequent drop of the murder rate to zero.

Tanja Cranton, the Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay said, “As impossible as it may seem to stop the violence, discrimination and divisiveness in society today, The Way to Happiness booklet offers a solution. It reminds people of the moral values they instinctively know to be right and provides a pathway anyone can follow, no matter what religion or political party the person holds dear. That is why we go out into our communities almost every day to share The Way to Happiness with its common sense values.”

The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay with its headquarters in Clearwater is one of nine humanitarian outreach programs sponsored by the Church of Scientology (http://www.scientology.tv). Open daily from 10am – 10pm. If you would like to tour or attend complimentary workshops, please call (727) 467-6961

The Way to Happiness:

The Way to Happiness booklet, written by L. Ron Hubbard, is available in 112 languages, with millions of copies distributed in 205 countries. The campaign to distribute the booklet has been embraced by more than 257,000 groups and individuals. The booklet holds the Guinness World Record as the single most-translated nonreligious book and fills the moral vacuum in an increasingly materialistic society.

TEALEAVES and UBC Botanical Garden Reveal The Secrets to Finding Your Next Big Idea in The Garden of Secrets

Discover the Garden of Secrets Documentary, Launching worldwide June 27.

The Garden of Secrets documentary is a philanthropic project in support of botanical gardens.

The Garden of Secrets encourages viewers to look at nature from a radically different perspective.

TEALEAVES, luxury tea blender, and UBC Botanical Garden bring together leading experts worldwide in a philanthropic documentary in support of botanical gardens.

We believe that this partnership will raise the profile of botanical gardens and the importance of this critical work, helping us highlight the role plants play service of humanity and the Earth.”

— Patrick Lewis, Director of UBC Botanical Garden

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES , June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, luxury tea brand, TEALEAVES, and UBC Botanical Garden announce the official release of a documentary from their five-year partnership entitled, The Garden of Secrets, launching today at the Conservatory of Flowers, for San Francisco Design Week. The documentary celebrates plants beyond their edible, aromatic, and medicinal properties, and explores botanical gardens as the keeper of ‘secrets’ that inspire plant-based biomimicry and biophilic solutions to the issues faced by humanity today. University of British Columbia Botanical Garden, the oldest university botanical garden in Canada, is home to a collection of 50,000 living accessions representing 7,000 different plants that provide ongoing direction and purpose for the Garden.

Through The Garden of Secrets, TEALEAVES brings together a score of innovators and activists to demonstrate how the wonders of nature – tested and perfected through millions of years of evolutionary trial and error – lend themselves to inspire brilliant solutions. Viewers are exposed to the unique approaches of designers, engineers, scientists and botanists at the forefront of plant-based biomimicry who are making a lasting impact on people, society and the environment.

“Botanical gardens like UBC Botanical Garden are ‘idea libraries,’ places where a wealth of solutions have been assembled near the doorsteps of the scientists, engineers, and designers tackling these issues,” said Patrick Lewis, Director of UBC Botanical Garden. “We are proud to be working with a loved global brand like TEALEAVES, a company committed to biodiversity and love for nature, whose inspiration aligns with our core values. We believe that this partnership will raise the profile of botanical gardens and the importance of this critical work, helping us highlight the role plants play in the service of humanity and the Earth.”

This partnership is an important step in showing the ability and responsibility of global brands to raise awareness for issues of importance while supporting brand communication and positioning goals.

“We want to help create a movement and demonstrate that any organization—whether it be from tea to technology—can adopt biomimetic methods to play their part to make the world more sustainable. Biomimicry offers a means to solve problems baked into the solution, instead of serving as a band-aid. Our unified goal is to blend our mutual love for plants and botanicals with biomimetic design to attract newfound interest in the plants that we take for granted,” says TEALEAVES CEO, Lana Sutherland.

In addition to the short 25-minute documentary, TEALEAVES will produce a series of short videos from the world of experts, which include Dr. Robert Lang, renowned origami artist and NASA physicist, Michael Pawlyn, Director of Exploration Architecture and Architect on The Eden Project, and Denis Hayes, Founder of Earth Day and President of the Bullitt Foundation. The content will serve as an inspiration bank, allowing visitors to take a deeper dive into the world of plant-inspired biomimicry and botany.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers Florida Doing Something About the Drug Crisis

Jason Good explains to attendees of drug seminar at the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Center in downtown Clearwater what is really fueling the drug crisis, how he escaped from this and what really helps drug addicts.

Families are destroyed by the scourge of drug addiction. Therefore, we feel it is important to educate our communities as to exactly what drugs are, and what can be done to handle drug addiction.”

— Glendy Goodsell, ED Scientology Volunteer Ministers Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Scientology Volunteer Ministers Center in downtown Clearwater held an “Answers to Drugs” seminar on June 11th. Hosted by Jason Good, a staff member of a drug abuse treatment center that uses technology developed by Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard, the seminar took up the subject of drugs from the most basic information — what drugs are, all the way up to how the most severe addicts are helped to recover and rebuild their lives.

The seminar also featured Rev. Dr. Basha P. Jordan Jr., founder of Hope 4 U Outreach. Dr. Jordan’s mission is to offer hope to all who are in need, especially those who are victims of drug addiction. Dr. Jordan talked about his work, but also his journey of recovery. He was a drug addict for 30 years but has been clean since October 13, 1988. Since then, Dr. Jordan has been working diligently to save the lives of addicts and restore broken families.

“Families are destroyed by the scourge of drug addiction,” said Glendy Goodsell, Executive Director of the Scientology Volunteer Minister Center in downtown Clearwater. “Therefore, we feel it is important to educate our communities as to exactly what drugs are, and what can be done to handle drug addiction.”

Good included data from the booklet “Answers to Drugs”, which is also a chapter in the Scientology Handbook. This includes information about how to help someone withdraw from drugs safely which is done in conjunction with medical treatment as needed. The information is also available in a free online course at www.volunteerministers.org/solutions

Scientology Volunteer Ministers:

The Scientology Volunteer Minister (VM) program was launched more than thirty years ago, in response to an appeal by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Noting a tremendous downturn in the level of ethics and morality in society, and a consequent increase in drugs and crime, Mr. Hubbard wrote, “If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a VOLUNTEER MINISTER and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance.” The program has adopted the slogan: “Something Can Be Done About It”. At the Scientology Volunteer Ministers center in downtown Clearwater, VMs are trained in the 19 chapters of the Scientology Handbook, basic first aid and safety techniques.
