Marina Edwards, Producer and Director, Opens Indiegogo Campaign for New Short Film

Actress, Producer, and Director Marina Edwards

Marina Edwards and Jon Edwards have opened up their new Indiegogo campaign for “My Love in the Sky,” a short film about a war veteran's challenges.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2019 / — Marina Edwards (co-writer, executive producer, director) and Jon Edwards (co-writer, executive producer) have opened up their new Indiegogo campaign for “My Love in the Sky,” a short film about a war veteran challenged by returning from Iraq to civilian life. The film is slated to be filmed in Los Angeles from February to March of 2019.

“We are motivated with all our respect to acknowledge the price our warriors have paid and continue to pay, for their service to our country,” explains Marina Edwards, “It is our desire to give back to those who served to defend the freedom in our world.”

The story follows Jake, an Army veteran of 20 years who, while on a humanitarian mission in Iraq, suffers the ultimate defeat in the loss of his copilot & best friend along with his helicopter. In doing so, he shatters his vertebrae and is sentenced to a wheelchair. Menawhile, Jake's wife Janet comes from an immigrant family who has made a lot of money through her hard work in real estate. She recognizes the meaning of love and commitment to be a military wife only when she is faced with Jake's return home. It is only through a complete recalibration as to what is important in their lives that we begin to see how this warrior family can possibly find their way back to civilian life together.

“It is our desire to give something back to those who served to defend our freedom in the form of this story,” continues Marina, “Many veterans are wounded in ways seen and unseen and our aim is to open our dialog with a human story about the power of love and lulnerability to create the healing process.” Veterans returning from war face many difficulties transitioning from military to civilian life. Studies released by the VA have revealed that every day around 20 war veterans commit suicide.

“Every day we are facing the effects of imbalance in our society. Suicide and mass shootings are just symptoms of deeper issues we contend with in our society,” states Marina, “Our goal is to join the dedicated people who spend their lives working to assist the many veterans affairs programs. Our focus is to support our veterans with communication, acknowledgement and respect as a pathway to healing.”

The production budget for the short film is $30,000, and the budget will pay for things including equipment, transportation costs, festival fees, and cast and crew expenses. Although the creative team has grown up in Los Angeles and forged many relationships within the industry, they still need a budget to make this film as professional as possible. Their hope, after funding this short film, is to possibly turn it into a feature.

“We feel obligated to acknowledge the powerful commitment our military soldiers offer with their willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice,” concludes Marina, “we want to shout out to all our active military and veterans that they are not alone and we in civilian life can do a better job to promote the crises in bringing our wounded veterans back from war.”

We chose to follow the group of African sculptures and masks with a superb collection of jazz recordings. The auction ends with money, and some of the most desirable coins of the twentieth century.”

— Serena Harragin

CLEVELAND, OHIO, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2019 / — A mid-week auction featuring an exciting decorative collection of African sculptures and masks, followed by a single-owner collection of jazz recordings, and finishing with an impressive collection of 19th & 20th Century American coins will be held Wednesday, February 20th, at 10 am Eastern time by Gray’s Auctioneers, online and live in Gray’s gallery.

The full catalog is up and pre-bidding is open at Bidding is also available on and Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. In-person previews will be held Thursday thru Wednesday, Feb. 14-20, from 10-5; and Saturday, February 16th, from noon-4 pm. Gray’s gallery, for previews and auction, is at 10717 Detroit Avenue in Cleveland.

“This auction is an eclectic grouping of subjects,” commented Serena Harragin of Gray’s Auctioneers. “However, it is well documented that the arts of Africa were a major influence on the art and music made in the United States and Europe in the early 20th century. So, we chose to follow the group of African sculptures and masks (lots 1-78) with a superb collection of jazz recordings” (lots 79-406).

Ms. Harragin continued, “The art of Africa was discovered by those wealthy travelers of the early 20th century who brought back African treasures. So, too, was it the wealthy elites of the jazz age whose embrace of jazz brought it to the masses. Thus, the auction ends with money, and some of the most desirable coins of the twentieth century.” (lots 407-529). Many of the coin lots are in multiples.
The auction provides a rare opportunity for collectors to break into the three main categories, or add to their existing collections, at very attractive price points. The bidding on many lots starts at under $100.

African artifacts with estimates of $80-$120, for example, include a Luba tribe (Democratic Republic of Congo) carved and painted wood moon mask with almond-shaped eyes, 17 ½ inches tall; a pair of Ivory Coast carved and painted wood Guro masks – a scorpion and an antelope, 25 ¼ inches tall; and a Senufo tribe (Ivory Coast) brass Kpelie initiation mask, 11 ½ inches tall. All are from the 20th century.

A handful of African lots have slightly higher estimates. These include a 20th century Salampasu tribe (Zaire) carved wood and copper ceremonial mask with a fiber ball coiffeur and plaited fiber and ball beard (est. $150-$250); and a pair of 20th century Nyamezi (Central Tanzania) carved wood figures – a male and a female, with inset beaded eyes – together on a metal stand, 68 inches tall (est. $100-$200).

Other lots with $100-$200 pre-sale estimates will include a 20th century Yoruba tribe (Nigeria) carved wood Ibeji female figure, 11 ¼ inches tall; a 20th century Benin brass figure of a seated female, 15 ½ inches tall; and a 20th century carved wood and metal Bamana Ntomo (Mali) mask, 18 inches in height.

The jazz recordings are from the single-owner collection of James Seidelle, who passed away in July last year. Mr. Seidelle was one of the inventors of the flight simulator, which teaches pilots how to fly. He was also a talented jazz drummer, a skillful photographer and a lifelong collector. Over 80 years he amassed a superb toy collection (sold by Gray’s in Dec. 2014), and a cherished jazz records collection. His musical instruments and a rare Slingerland drum set will be offered in Gray’s March 2019 auction.

Just a few highlights from Mr. Seidelle’s vast collection of jazz recordings will include a group of four Miles Davis vinyl LPs from various labels, being sold as one lot; a group of four Benny Goodman 10- inch shellac 78 album sets from Columbia Records; an autographed Woody Herman 10-inch shellac 78 album, signed by Herman, along with eleven Herman 10-inch shellac 78s; a Bunk Johnson red 10-inch vinyl LP from American Music Records; and a Billy Bauer vinyl LP from Norgran Records (all 20th c.).

All above lots (except the Commodore set) are est. $80-$120.

The 19th and 20th century American coins will be led by a group of four partial sets of Morgan silver half dollars from 1878-1921, including 70 coins of unknown mints (est. $3,000-$3,200); a group of 73 pre-1921 Morgan silver dollars of various mints, circulated and uncirculated (est. $1,800-$2,000); and a 1924 St. Gaudens gold coin in circulated condition (est. $1,500-$1,700).

Also up for bid will be a group of six gold coins from Mexico, all from the 20th century in circulated condition, including 50, 20, 10, 2, 2.5 and 5 Peso coins of various dates and unknown mints (est. $3,600-$3,800); a group of four 1986 gold American Eagle coins, circulated (est. $3,000-$3,200); and a group of four 1910 and 1914 gold type coins, circulated, and of unknown mints (est. $3,000-$3,200).

5 Benefits of Stretching

The importance of stretching after working out can’t be stressed enough. It helps your body recover, and is helpful for strength and endurance improvements.

ORILLIA, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 22, 2019 / — One of the most overlooked aspects of working out and exercising is stretching. People often finish up their workout or finish their sport and that’s it. They don’t spend the extra time to stretch out afterwards, which can hinder their progression and ultimately lead to an increased risk of injury. Stretching is an essential part of any gym session or sport, like track and field, snowboarding, or kiteboarding.

Warm Up Before the Workout
It’s important to know when to stretch. Often people will stretch before the exercise, which is a mistake. Stretching is supposed to be done after your exercise, when your muscles are already warmed up and loose. Warming up before your workout should include 5 – 10 minutes of light cardio, perhaps some pushups / pullups, and light resistance band work. This helps to prep your muscles and “wake them up”, getting them ready for the following activity.

Stretch After Your Workout
After your workout is when it’s most important to stretch. At this point, your muscles should be tired, and have a build up lactic acid. Stretching helps to ease soreness in the muscle, decrease recovery time of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscular Soreness), and increase muscular improvements. A good rule of thumb to follow is that for every one hour of activity or exercise, you should stretch for 15 minutes.

5 Benefits of Stretching After Exercising
Increased Flexibility and Range of Motion
By stretching after a workout or activity you maximize the muscular gains and also help to increase the range of motion in the muscle.

Preventing Injuries
With an increased range of motion comes a decrease in the chance of injury occurring. In addition to that, stretching helps to build stabilizing muscles which help prevent injury as well.

Improving Sports Performance
Regular stretching allows your muscles to work more efficiently, so they will be able to handle lactic acid build up better, leading to better muscular endurance.

Eliminate Lactic Acid
Lactic acid builds up in your muscles during a workout and causes fatigue. By stretching you help to remove the lactic acid build up which means that you’ll recover faster from your workout.

Stress Relief
An underrated benefit of stretching is the relaxing nature of it. By stretching after your workout you can release a lot of built up tension which leads to greater stress relief.

The powerful all-in-one pocket entertainment system breached 10,000% of its funding goal and is still going strong with only a few days left in the campaign

After spending months working with some of the most talented audio-visual engineers on the planet, we’re really thrilled that the public is as excited about this project as we are”


LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 21, 2019 / — PIQO is an industry-topping portable projector that puts the computing power of an iPhone X, the sound quality of Bose, and the crystal-clear picture of an LED TV in your pocket. PIQO has blown past over USD$1,000,000 in funding on the popular crowdfunding site, Indiegogo, with over 3,000 backers supporting the campaign.

Considering that the initial funding goal was just $10,000, the current enthusiasm has all but shattered the expectations of the founders and the industry alike. It’s safe to say that PIQO is one of the most successful campaigns on Indiegogo—a campaign which has yet to conclude. Early-bird special pricing is still available for a few more days on Indiegogo for those who want to take advantage of the incredible 50% discount.

PIQO is set to revolutionize portable entertainment by combining all the features of a modern entertainment system in a pocket-sized projector.

With its industry topping battery that promises hours of video and up to 50 hours of audio playback on just one charge as well as its HiFi speaker designed by renowned sound engineers, PIQO is truly 100% portable. There’s no need to lug around gear or accessories. As PIQO also comes with 16 GB of internal storage, users won’t even need an internet connection to enjoy hours of music and video.

An entertainment system wouldn’t be complete without the entertainment. Users can download their favorite apps directly to PIQO from the Google Play store or upload content using a USB drive. Upon turning it on, it’s simple to choose between apps, downloads, external media and more using its intuitive touchscreen. Videos can even be downloaded directly from apps like Netflix and YouTube for offline viewing.

“After spending months working with some of the most talented audio-visual engineers on the planet, we’re really thrilled that the public is as excited about this project as we are” said a PIQO spokesperson. He continued: “As funding continues on Indiegogo, we’re putting our heads together again to bring further perks and features to our backers.”

Other groundbreaking aspects of the PIQO projector include:

• Fast battery charge: Just a 15-minute charge provides enough power for one hour of video playback.
• Keystone angle correction: Users on the go will love this feature that automatically adjusts the projection angle using advanced internal gravity sensors. This means PIQO can be placed on uneven surfaces without distorting the picture or affecting image quality.
• Universal compatibility: PIQO supports all devices and operating systems.

About PIQO Projector

377-lot auction includes fine Americana and folk art consigned by group’s member-dealers

The 377-lot auction focuses on excellent-quality Americana and folk art sourced entirely from NHADA member/dealers.”

— NHADA member and auction curator Cliff Wallach

NEW YORK, N.Y., UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 / — The New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association (NHADA), one of the largest organizations of its kind, consists of nearly 300 knowledgeable members dedicated to integrity and fairness in all business dealings. The NHADA has teamed up with Jasper52 to present a January 24 auction featuring items consigned solely by members of the prestigious trade organization. Jasper52 helps select auction houses, dealers, galleries and now associations to conduct themed auctions whose goods are vetted by auctioneers and appraisers. Absentee and live online bidding for all Jasper52 auctions is available exclusively through LiveAuctioneers.

"The 377-lot auction focuses on excellent-quality Americana and folk art," said NHADA member and auction curator Cliff Wallach. One of the top items is a rare carousel goat carved by Salvatore Cernigliaro in the early 1900s at the Dentzel shop in Philadelphia’s historic Germantown neighborhood. With its original paint, the life-size carousel goat is one of a few that have survived in this condition. It is expected to sell for $30,000-$35,000.

Of the dozen paintings offered in the auction, perhaps none is more charming than the portrait of a girl and her dog by Justus Englehart Kuhn, a German immigrant who settled and worked in Annapolis, Maryland, from 1708 to 1717. Several prominent Maryland families patronized Kuhn, and the girl in this painting is possibly one of the Carroll children. The Maryland Historical Society owns two identified Kuhn paintings of children. This painting, which measures 39 by 29 inches, has a $32,000-$43,000 estimate.

The auction contains many antiques originating in New England. Native to New Hampshire is a cast-iron rooster weather vane manufactured by Rochester Iron Works in Rochester, New Hampshire, circa 1860. The barn-topping bird retains its original sheet-metal tail and an old weathered surface. It comes with a metal base for display. Est. $12,000-$13,500

A wooden bust of a young woman served as a figurehead of a boat in the mid-1800s. Measuring 12 by 11 by 8 inches, the carving in old paint is believed to have come from a longboat used by a ship’s crew to go ashore. Est. $10,000-$12,000

Virginia folk artist Frank Finney (b. 1947-) has been carving decoys since he was a child. His entry in the NHADA auction is a well-executed running quail showing the extraordinary form that Finney so capably depicts through carving. Leaves and acorns are carved into its 8-inch-long base. The realistically painted gamebird measures 6½ inches tall by 9 inches long. Est. $1,200-$1,700

Another auctiοn highlight is an 1890s gambling machine made by Caille Bros of Detroit. The countertop coin-op machine would award cigars to the player spinning a winning poker hand in the reels. Its wooden case is surmounted by an ornate nickel-plated front. The machine is original and in working order. Est. $2,000-$2,500

Additional treasures in this large auction include quilts, hooked rugs, toys and gameboards, tramp art, trade signs and mocha ware, to name but a few of the standouts.

The NHADA auction of Americana and folk art, hosted by Jasper52, will take place Thursday, January 24, beginning at 6 p.m. Eastern. Bid absentee or live via the Internet through LiveAuctioneers.

The NHADA also sponsors the annual New Hampshire Antiques Show, which features 67 of the country’s finest antiques dealers. The 2019 edition will be held Aug. 8-10 in Manchester, New Hampshire. Visit the NHADA online at
