CCHR Florida Announces Open House and Special Museum Tour at their Downtown Clearwater Office

Visitors gaze at one of the 14 audiovisual displays which reveal shocking details about psychiatric abuses. CCHR’s Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum uses interviews with more than 160 health professionals and survivors exposing psychiatric abuses.

CCHR receives too many calls on a weekly basis from families whose loved one was illegally taken into custody, with the Baker Act as an excuse, and this abuse must end.”

— Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, June 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Florida Chapter of The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog organization is hosting an open house and offers a special museum tour of the Psychiatry an Industry of Death Museum at their Florida headquarters located at 109 N. Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown Clearwater. CCHR opens the center and museum to raise awareness on the history of psychiatry and its current damaging treatments provided under the guise of “mental health”.

The self-guided tour of the Museum includes mini-documentaries featuring testimonies from more than 150 health care professionals, attorneys, professors, and human rights advocates. CCHR claims that this multi-media museum is the definitive resource on historical and contemporary psychiatric theories and practices. The museum aims not only to educate and inform but to bring practical guidance for lawmakers, doctors, human rights advocates and private citizens to help eliminate psychiatric abuses committed under the guise of mental health.

Commonly called the Baker Act, Florida’s mental health allows for men, women and children to be taken into custody and held for involuntary psychiatric examination across the state and in the 15 years from 2001/2002 to 2015/2016 the number of Baker Acts more than doubled with 194,354 initiations. [1]

The number of people being “Baker Acted,” as the involuntary commitment is commonly called, has risen 118% between 2001 and 2016, according to a report from the Department of Children and Families. [2] Another recent official report shows that more than 199,000 involuntary psychiatric examinations were done in Florida, with over 32,000 of these initiations occurring on children — some as young as two-years-old. [3]

“The Baker Act is being abused and is being used incorrectly on people of all ages,” said Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida. “CCHR receives too many calls on a weekly basis from families whose loved one was illegally taken into custody, with the Baker Act as an excuse, and this abuse must end.”

Given these statistics, it is clear that everyone knows someone who has been affected by the psychiatric industry, but too few are aware of the rampant abuse perpetrated under the guise of mental health “treatment.” Hundreds of people tour the museum each month, including students, doctors, human rights advocates, and healthcare professionals.

The museum is free to the public and is open 7 days a week from 10 am to 10 pm. To learn more about the Baker Act or to schedule a tour, please call 727-442-8820.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

Youth for Human Rights Recognizes Champions for Freedom at Awards Banquet

Dr. Peter Ndiang’ui, the Champion for Freedom awardee of 2019, (back row) proudly stands with his relatives and two other awardees (Mary Kimari and Rose Oginga – front left) of the 2019 Champions for Freedom YHR banquet.

Niko Papaharaklis and Cristian Vargas of YHR Florida bookend Champions for Freedom award winners – L-R: Joseph Haber, Yvette Jones, Lided Cerda; and Sara Pierce on June 22 at the Fort Harrison.

All humans have a responsibility to protect others and their rights.”

— Christopher King, CEO and founder of the Gentlemen's Course

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “[Youth for Human Rights] is for that 10-year-old kid that gets bullied at school, so that he can no longer feel afraid and starts speaking up,” said Niko Papaheraklis, the Programs Director of the Florida chapter of Youth for Human Rights (YHR). “It’s for that college girl who is harassed, so that she knows she doesn’t deserve it. Our material is created to help others speak up.”

Founded in 2001, YHR is an international non-profit organization, sponsored by the Church of Scientology. YHR provides educational materials free of charge to educate the public on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and for anyone who wants to promote peace, tolerance and mutual respect among youth. Over a thousand people in Florida alone, from teachers to martial artists and community activists, use the YHR materials.

On June 22, over 200 of those said educators—from as far as Broward County and Miami—were in the Fort Harrison auditorium in Clearwater for the first annual Champions for Freedom Awards Banquet. They came to acknowledge educators who teach human rights and to present the “Champion for Freedom of the Year” award.

Papaheraklis read UDHR #29, “Responsibility”, to the crowd: “We have a duty to other people, and we should protect their rights and freedoms.”

Together, Papaheraklis and the Executive Director of YHR Florida, Cristian Vargas, acknowledged 22 educators as “Human Rights Champions” for taking that responsibility to heart and dedicatedly teaching human rights.

The guest speaker of the evening was a longtime partner of YHR Florida, grandson of the late Blues legend BB King, two-time recipient of the President’s Volunteer Service Award and founder of the non-profit, The Gentlemen’s Course, Christopher King. He repeated Human Right #29 “Responsibility”. King, who has educated over 10,000 youth in the last five years, said, “All humans have a responsibility to protect others and their rights.”

Moving on to the final award presentation, Vargas said going through the applications was an extremely hard task for YHR Florida staff, but in the end one person “stands out and deserves to be praised for their years of relentless dedication and resolute passion.”

Dr. Peter Ndiang’ui, the Champion for Freedom awardee of 2019, has been teaching human rights for over seven years and collaborated with youth from Turkey, Japan, Kenya, Egypt and Malawi to enlighten more than 50,000 people on their inalienable rights. “I’m not one of those people who are short of words,” he said, looking around on stage in disbelief, “but right now I am.”

“I was born in a small village in Kenya and I used to walk seven miles to get to school every day. I still consider myself to be that kind of person.” Dr. Ndiang’ui has now been living in Fort Myers, Florida for 20 years. He is the president of the African Network of Southwest Florida, a non-profit organization which is a support system for African immigrants settling in to life in Southwest Florida.

As the event came to a close with a concert performed by the Flag Band, five-time, super-light heavyweight kickboxing world champion, Olando Rivera, was seen making a bee-line for the presentation tables. “I’m really glad that I got to see the awards tonight. I’m going to get all of the literature!” he said. Just like Rivera, dozens of other educators joined the YHR Florida Facebook group and got their free educator kit at a booth right outside the auditorium.

Dr. Ndiang’ui told Freedom, “Human rights are common sense. It is to love one another, to not shoot each other and not pick on their religious beliefs and other things about them.”

Youth for Human Rights (YHR):
Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2001 by Dr. Mary Shuttleworth, an educator born and raised in apartheid South Africa, where she witnessed firsthand the devastating effects of discrimination and the lack of basic human rights.

The purpose of YHRI is to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace. YHRI has now grown into a global movement, including hundreds of groups, clubs and chapters around the world.

YHR materials include the UNITED music video with a street-savvy, multiethnic, anti-bullying message; 30 short public service message videos depicting the 30 articles of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights; and What are Human Rights? booklets delineating those 30 articles in simple, everyday language. With these, YHR has reached millions from diverse backgrounds all over the world. It was humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard who said, "Human Rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream."

The Perfect, Inexpensive Vegan Plant Protein for the Human Diet

Health conscious consumers cutting back on meat are looking for natural, healthy, inexpensive vegan protein options and chefs/cooks are looking for solutions.

BOULDER, CO, US, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are you attempting to consume more plant proteins as part of a healthy diet or a chef looking for a simple, high quality, inexpensive, and high protein solution, but don’t know where to start? Do you know how to calculate how much protein you need for your body weight? The answer is simple and approachable regardless of your culinary skills or food budget.

The sustainable perfect plant protein for human consumption and rarely seen, if ever, on commercial food service menu as a center plate entrée are pulses (beans, peas, and lentils). As a professional chef and vegan since 1976 only once did a restaurant serve me pulses and only after returning the cup of vegetables poised as the entrée. Pulses are often served with meat but not in place meat as an entrée. There are two reasons why.
• Chefs and general public are not generally aware of the dynamic nutritional value of beans and
pulses as a “Balanced Protein”

• Chef’s and cooks have not yet learned how to translate low perceived value beans into
savory slice-able high value nutrient protein.

Pulses Superior Source of Protein.
• One (1) cup cooked pinto beans has 15 grams of protein or 25% of daily requirement for 150 lb. person

• Superior Source of complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber & Fat

• Combined with a grain, beans are a complete protein

• Beans are sustainable source of protein nourishing the soil with nitrogen

• Easy to prepare

Cooking technique solutions
Beans need one or more plant based carrier ingredients to give them texture and binding qualities to create a slice-able entrée protein. A firm polenta with roasted chopped nuts is a good example of a slice-able protein. Beans work well in plant and meatloaf (vegan or with meat). In working and developing a few plant based cooking techniques to integrate pulsed into center plate entrees I have come up with some simple solutions exemplified in the pictures.
.
How does one calculate their daily protein needs?
The American Dietetic Association (ADA) formula is: Divide your body weight in pounds (i.e. 150 lbs.) by 2.2. (kilogram) which is 68 kilograms. Multiply that number by .8. We need .8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. Your protein need would be 54 grams of protein. The fifteen grams of protein in a cup of pinto beans covers 25% of the protein needs for the 150 lb. person.

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization bean support
The UN FAO believes that pulses are the sustainable protein for humanity, especially 3rd world countries, and food security and sustainability. The UN FAO declared 2016 The International Year of The Pulse and February 10th, 2019 the first International Day of the Pulse in its support of pulse education. Lux International stated that plant protein has a 9% potential growth rate over the next 40 years and the increase in plant based burgers is confirmation.

For more information on how to ingrate beans into your vegan or traditional meat menu as a center plate entrée go to American Natural Foods.org, a non-profit whose mission is plant-based culinary education, and contact Chef Ron Pickarski who 46 years a professional chef and 43 years a vegan chef for help. Chef Pickarski is a vegan Culinologist, consultant, and president of Eco-Cuisine, authored 3 books on vegan cuisine, and won 7 medal (gold, silver, and bronze with vegan cuisine at the International Culinary Olympics. His recent Book “The Classical Vegetarian Cookbook for Professional Chefs and Inspired Cooks” is available at www.eco-cuisine.com He currently works with the Colorado Dry Bean Board developing beans as center plate entrees.

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 DEBUTS INDEPENDENCE DAY VIDEO IN SECOND EDITION OF “The ONE VOICE Minute”

IAOVC

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.

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.
