FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Founder and Executive Director Ismael Hernandez is pleased to announce the Freedom & Virtue Institute (FVI) will hold their inaugural young Entrepreneurs Fair to showcase their Self Reliance Clubs (SRC) on October 20, 2018 from 9 am to 2 pm at FleaMasters, located at 4135 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd in Fort Myers. Congressman Francis Rooney who serves on the 19th District in Florida will be on hand to welcome and visit the booths of the SRC participants.

Several SRCs and local area schools will be on hand to promote and sell their produce, crafts and projects they have created. “As a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, I am focused on how we can create opportunities to give each student the tools they need to determine their level of success and achievement in life,” as stated on Congressman Rooney’s website. Proceeds from these sales will help sustain the clubs through the rest of the year.

The Self Reliance Clubs, which include elementary and middle schools in Lee and Collier County, provide students with the opportunity to earn money for school and other education related supplies. Witnessed through the achievement of goals, school performance, extra-curricular activities like urban farming, and volunteerism, these participants experience success and the reward that comes from initiative, hard work and self-reliance.

Gates open at 9:00 am and it is open to the public. “These students have worked so hard over the years to build their clubs and achieve success,” states Mark Wardell, Director of the Self Reliance Clubs. “We wanted to expand their knowledge and inspire the entrepreneurial drive we teach and see evident in many of our participants”.

“Our sincere thanks go to FleaMasters as our Title Sponsor for this fabulous event, their dedication in helping students flourish is truly appreciated,” states Ismael Hernandez, Executive Director of the Institute. “We invite all to come and see what a little initiative and self reliance can do to change a person’s life.” The Self-Reliance Clubs exist to educate the next generation to understand that they are the champions of their own lives. Through their own initiative, ingenuity, and hard work, they will realize that they have the power to determine the direction of their future.

Irving Ramsey Wiles (Am., 1861-1948), oil on canvas titled The Loiterers (est. $100,000-$150,000).

Edward Moran (Am., 1829-1901), oil on canvas titled The Winning Yacht (est. $40,000-$60,000).

William Trost Richards (Am., 1833-1905), oil on canvas titled Seascape (est. $60,000-$80,000).

Featuring 238 lots, the auction will include quality examples of American Impressionism, American Coastal scenes, Modernism and European paintings.

MILFORD, CONN., UNITED STATES, October 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — MILFORD, CT. – Important American paintings from the 19th century through the contemporary era will be available during Shannon’s semi-annual American and European Fine Art Auction to be held at 6PM on Thursday, October 25, 2018 in Milford, Connecticut. Featuring 238 lots, the auction will include quality examples of American Impressionism, American Coastal scenes, Modernism and European paintings.
Leading the auction is a New England landscape by American Impressionist Willard Leroy Metcalf. The painting, titled “The Road that Leads Home,” romantically depicts a quiet village scene. Metcalf masterfully captures the atmosphere and the shadows of the trees. The painting is fresh-to-the-market and in very good condition. It will be listed in the forthcoming catalogue raisonne on the artist. (est. $200,000-300,000)
Another leading highlight in American Impressionism is a café scene by Irving Ramsey Wiles. The panting is dated 1887, only three years after the artist returned from studying in Paris. Wiles undoubtedly encountered works by artists like Edgar Degas and Edouard Manet while in Paris, their influences are apparent in this painting. (est. $100,000-150,000)
Other highlights in American Impressionism are an early work by Willard Leroy Metcalf depicting a young woman in a garden of sunflowers; a large-format Winter Landscape by Pennsylvania Impressionist Walter E. Schofield; a view of New York City’s Washington Square by Guy C. Wiggins; another view of Washington Square by Impressionist Alfred S. Mira; two fresh-to-the-market snow scenes by Walter L. Palmer; a still-life of Chrysanthemums by Emil Carlsen; and many others!
Another leading fresh-to-the-market painting is a dramatic sailing scene by Edward Moran. In the painting, circa 1876, the Madeleine and the Countess of Dufferin race around the buoy in the winning race of the America’s Cup. The Madeleine, at the time, was the fastest boat in the New York Yacht Club fleet. It easily defended the cup beating the challenger in every leg of the race. The panting has descended in a private Connecticut family since it was painted. It is in excellent original condition and will be offered at a $40,000-60,000 estimate.
The sale will also feature several other outstanding examples of 19th century American Art including a Luminist seascape by William Trost Richards (est. $60,000-90,000); a painting of Grand Manan by Mauritz F.H. De Haas (est. $20,000-30,000) and quality paintings by Martin Johnson Headed, John J. Enneking, Hermann Herzog, William Wilcox, J.F. Peto, William Mason Brown, Albert Bierstadt, George H. Smillie, Virgil Williams, Louis Aston Knight and William Bradford.
Previews will be held daily, starting Monday, October 15th, and continuing through Wednesday, October 24th (closed Sunday). Preview hours are 11-6 (ET), except on Saturday, October 20th, when the preview will be from 10:00AM-3:00PM. There will also be a preview on Thursday, October 25th, the date of sale, from noon until 5:30PM. The auction will start promptly at 6PM ET.

MOUNT VERNON, NEW YORK, USA, October 9, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wartburg Fall Festival
Live Music, Farmer’s Market, Children’s Area and Food Trucks
Contribute to a Fun-Filled Day

Mount Vernon, N.Y. (October 5, 2018) – Wartburg, a premier senior residential and healthcare care provider, recently hosted its annual Fall Festival on their 34-acre campus. This year’s event drew over 800 people including residents, family members and the community.

The event featured live entertainment throughout the day, a children’s area with a bouncy castle, an obstacles course, a GaGa pit and games (sponsored by Backyard Sports Cares, a mentoring organization through sports for underprivileged children, and Talon Athletics), shopping, face painting and an art exhibition hosted by Got Art?, Inc. In addition, Wartburg hosted a Wartburg Orphans’ Farm School reunion, welcoming nearly 20 Wartburg alumni back home. Internet-based radio station, Westchester Talk Radio, broadcasted from the festival. The Mount Vernon Fire Department provided an opportunity for children to climb aboard a fire truck and Sergeant Michael Kushnir and Detective Ozzie Medina from the Mount Vernon Police Department brought “Otis” and “Mavis”, German Shepherds in the K-9 unit.

This year’s historic Fall Festival also included a Classic Car Show. The “Latin Cruisers” brought back a bit of the old school with classic hot rods from decades ago.

In addition to the various food vendors including Chef El-Amin, Caribbean Thyme and Smoothies by Peter, there was also a Farmer’s Market sponsored by Morrison Community Living. To quench the adult thirst of attendees, Captain Lawrence provided a Beer Bar.

Attendees were entertained throughout the day by the children of the Mount Vernon Music School and Alan Ramirez and Friends as well as lively lessons of various dances by Cynthia Dixon & The Soul Latin Line Dancers and Jay McKenzie, “The Godfather of Seniors” served as MC for the day.

“Although we still have not been able to find the guy with the smoked eels that was often present at our historical Fall Festival since the turn of the century, we put together a great event and the weather this year was perfect,” said David J. Gentner, Wartburg’s President and CEO. “My thanks to the many exhibitors, staff, volunteers, member congregations and sponsors for making this year’s festival the best one yet.”

During the day, Wartburg was proud to unveil the mosaic bench done by residents of Wartburg’s nursing home in partnership with the Westchester County (NY) Chapter of The Links, Inc. and the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY. The fun-filled day culminated with a “balloon pop” where children won prizes such as sporting equipment, scooters and new bicycles.

“For over 100 years Wartburg has welcomed the community to our historic campus to enjoy our annual Fall Festival. And on a beautiful, sunny day, this year was no exception.” said Angela Ciminello, Vice President of Development and Marketing. “With the help of our dedicated volunteers, staff and board as well as our generous sponsors, the Fall Festival was enjoyed by all who attended.”

About the Author:
I started off as a musician in high school, playing guitar and bass. Coming out of high school, I knew some of my own songs as well as those of other artists. I didn't start writing poems for a while though-except in high school for English class, when I wrote a poem that said, "Let's blow up the rotten school and build ourselves a swimming pool," which raised an issue at school similar to bomb threats in this day and age. Then there was this dirty poem I wrote in my early twenties. But I was still writing songs then. I took some college courses in jazz, piano, songwriting, and creative writing. Back in 1985, I recorded with a famous producer. Butch Vig produced Nevermind by Nirvana, a number-one album of the year in the early nineties. Then, in 1986, I started a twenty-year sentence for a crime. That's when I started writing poetry. I took a course in creative writing from UW–Extension. I wrote a few poems and people liked them, so I wrote more. There came a time when I used poetry as therapy. I would write two poems for every two weeks. And that beats writer's block. A lot of that stuff is in the book Best of Ken Jackson. I was released in '99 and put out a bunch of rock 'n' roll albums. I was also participating in a monthly poetry group for a while. I wrote one section of this book using a variety of student researchers.

The mansion is located at 301 North Meridian Street in Aberdeen. A detailed video of the mansion’s interior can be seen online, at www.adamsfrenchmansion.com.

I hope to find a buyer who will take over the mansion and a church on the four-acre property and will share with the community by opening it to pilgrimage and community events for years to come.”

— Dwight Stevens

ABERDEEN, MISS., UNITED STATES, October 9, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The contents of the historic Adams French Mansion, belonging to Stevens Auction Company founder Dwight Stevens, will be sold on the grounds of the mansion itself, located at 301 North Meridian Street in Aberdeen, on Saturday, October 20th, starting at 9 am Central time. The sale will be conducted by Stevens Auction Company, also based in Aberdeen. A detailed video of the mansion’s interior can be seen online, at www.adamsfrenchmansion.com.

The auction will comprise most of Mr. Stevens’s 38-year antique collection, which includes several private warehouses of highly collectible cars, guns, antique furniture, crystal, 19th century lighting, antique Persian rugs, sterling silver, bronze sculptures, clocks, original artwork, antique porcelain, giant mantel mirrors, and other furnishings from the opulent, 7,000-square-foot home.

Although there is a potential buyer for the Adams French Mansion, it is still available for sale, at $750,000. Interested parties may call Dick Leike of Crye-Leike Realtors, at (901) 486-2070. “I have over a million dollars invested in Adams French and its grounds.” Mr. Stevens said. “I hope to find a buyer who will take over the mansion and a church on the four-acre property and will share with the community by opening it to pilgrimage and community events for years to come.”

The church is an interesting story. It was originally built in 1905, about four miles away, by freed slaves who called it the James Creek Missionary Baptist Church. When Mr. Stevens learned that a group was looking to tear the church down, in 2005, he offered to move the structure instead to his mansion grounds. The move was documented on an episode of the Home & Garden channel.

There will be two open house showings leading up to the auction. These will be held Thursday and Friday, Oct. 18-19, from 10-6 Central. Internet bidding will be available on two platforms – LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. Telephone and absentee bids will also be accepted.

The fine art category contains what could be the auction’s top lot: a large oil on canvas done in the manner of Winslow Homer (1836-1910), the famous American landscape and marine artist. The 50 inch by 75 inch work, depicting a lady at a New England seashore, nicely framed, has museum labels on the back for the Manhattan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Mr. Stevens hasn’t had the work authenticated. He purchased it in the Boston area around 1985.

The classic cars will feature a 1928 Oldsmobile Huckster woody pick-up, fully restored; and a 1950 Studebaker Champion, also restored, with fresh paint, new interior and air conditioning.

Additional artworks will feature a French life-size oil on canvas painting of a captain in uniform, done circa 1918, signed and large at 94 inches tall by 57 inches wide; and a pair of oil on canvas landscape and valley scenes, signed “S. Barnes”, both from the Zoe Spedell estate in Louisiana.

The furnishings and decorative accessories will read like a who’s-who of fine makers, by names such as Sevres, Old Paris, Tiffany, P. Mallard, William McCracken, Meeks, Henkel and others.

Monumental beds will include a rosewood rococo three-quarter tester bed by P. Mallard (New Orleans, circa 1855), 11 feet 1 inches tall by 67 inches wide and 80 inches long; and a William McCracken full tester plantation bed, 9 feet 8 inches tall by 60 inches wide by 72 inches long.

Fine furniture will feature a rosewood Victorian etagere with white marble, having no missing parts and in mint condition, 8 feet 6 inches tall; a rosewood rococo center table by Meeks with white marble; an 8-piece rosewood rococo laminated parlor suite by Henkel in mint condition; an exceptional mahogany dining table with claw feet and column base, five leaves and the original crate; a period Empire mahogany secretary with millwood on the doors and bird’s eye maple gallery, circa 1840, one of the original furnishings of Rosemont, 8 feet 3 inches tall; and a pair of flame Empire mahogany two-door bookcases with fret work in the style of Meeks, 92 inches tall.

Decorative items will be led by a pair of early Sevres capped urns with bronze mounts and a courting scene, signed and each 12 inches tall; an early bronze and porcelain Sevres center bowl, 12 inches by 18 inches; a pair of early Old Paris mantel vases from Rosemont with satyr handles, 19 inches tall; 150 pieces of Spode Copeland china, signed Tiffany; an exceptional powder blue Old Paris vase, 16 inches tall; and a matched pair of polychrome blackamoors on marble stands.

Lamps and lighting will light up the crowd with lots that include an early bronze and marble astral lamp with etched harp shade, 27 inches tall; a bronze mid-19th century astral lamp, all original, with no drill to tank, 21 inches tall; a pair of early whale oil lamps with dragon décor on the shades, 35 inches tall; a pair of fine and heavy French candle holders with a marble base, 13 inches tall; and an early Victorian girandoles set with marble bases in great shape, 19 inches tall.

Mirrors will include a very large Victorian over-the-mantel mirror with an Egyptian figure on the crown, 7 feet 5 inches tall by 70 inches wide; and a large pair of oval hanging wall mirrors, 8 feet 8 inches tall by 35 inches wide. Musical instruments will feature a 19th century Erard giltwood and maple harp; and an early mahogany piano, circa 1810, 68 inches wide and 35 inches tall.

Dov Bechhofer explains the Crucial Parts of and Discusses How to Build an Affordable yet Powerful PC

Dov Bechhofer PC Buildout

Computer expert Dov Bechhofer explains how to build an exclusive PC without breaking the bank.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 9, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — There’s a stigma about building a personal computer. That stigma is that it’s complicated and easy to mess up. While that might have been the case ten years ago, building a PC today is a simple task. The hardest part about building a PC is deciding the functionality of it. However, if someone is considering piecing together their own PC, they likely have an idea what they want.

To answer a few basic questions, Dov Bechhofer has cultivated this concise guide to building an affordable PC.

-Gathering the Parts

Gathering the desired parts for a PC is the main reason a person doesn’t simply buy a retail PC. There’s usually something they’re looking for that isn’t found in mainstream devices. While there are many different optional parts, there are a few main pieces that a PC cannot function without.

-Processor
The processor is the brain of the computer. It’s a small chip, but it’s vital. There are a few different options. The more power or clock speed and cores a processor has, the better it will function. Yet, that also means that it will be more expensive. Dov Bechhofer wants computer builder to seriously think about what they’re going to be using the PC for. If the processor doesn’t have enough power, the PC will never work. If the PC has too much power, it was a waste of money.

-Motherboard
The motherboard is the housing device for the other parts. The number of USB ports and expansion cards the PC will have will be decided by this purchase. Again, Bechhofer urges PC enthusiasts to keep their goal in mind. Remember that there’s only so much space on a motherboard. A good way to save money with a motherboard is to get a device with many slots for RAM and graphics expansions. That way, if the computer’s processor can handle it, more power can be equipped later.

-Hard Drive
The hard drive depicts how much storage space is going to be available on the PC. Again, if there’s enough power in the processor, this can be updated. A good, affordable hard drive has a speed of 7200 RPM.

-RAM Card
The Random-Access Memory (RAM) card decides how fast programs run. RAM dictates the power of the programs that the computer can run. Fortunately, this can be changed out or added to easily. The only concern is to ensure the RAM card is compatible with the motherboard.

-Power Supply
The power supply is another simple, yet essential part of the PC. The builder must once more consider the use of their PC. If the person intends to play games, or utilize heavy graphics, more wattage is needed. If the PC is mainly for word and web-browsing, the wattage can be lower and less-expensive.

-Case
The case is self-explanatory but important. This is the compartment that houses all the pieces of the PC. Cases come in all sizes and shapes, but the main concern is the noise it makes. Due to the need for airflow, fans can be quite noisy. Dov Bechhofer explains the best thing to do to mitigate noise is to read reviews. Other than that, price varies on how much a person wants to do with their PC.

-Monitor, Keyboard, and Mouse
Obtaining a working monitor, keyboard, and mouse is simple. Basically, people can pay as little or as much as they want for screen quality, gaming functionality, responsiveness, and customization.

-Building the PC
Once all the parts come in, it’s time to bring the PC to life. Dov Bechhofer assures builders that this task sounds far more daunting than it is. For the most part, it’s plug and play. The only thing that the builder should keep in mind is static electricity could damage fragile parts. So, builders should use care when handling the computer parts.

Building an affordable PC can be quite the accomplishment. Having all the pieces come together to form the user’s perfect vision of a PC can be a technological miracle for some. Dov Bechhofer is hopeful that this concise guide has awarded some insight on how to build an affordable PC.
