Thomas William Furniture Hosts Virtual Art Fair

It was all amazing.”

— Steve Uren

OCONOMOWOC, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 / — Thomas William Furniture hosted a Behind-the-Scenes Virtual Art Fair. Twelve professional artists representing nine artistic mediums, located in eight states spread across the U.S., invited you into their studios, workshops and woodshops. They hoped to spark your interest not only in the diversity of their creative endeavors, but in the interesting and personal ways in which the creation of their art weaves throughout their day-to-day lives.

The variation in artists included a ceramicist, blacksmith, fiber artist, photographer, wood artist, mixed media artist, print maker, furniture maker and painter. Their studios ranged from rooms and garages in their homes to a historic church, pole barn, and converted factory space. They were joined in Wisconsin, Michigan, Kansas, California, Missouri, Ohio, New Mexico and Colorado by professional news producer and anchor, Ned Wicker. The interviews were singular and in-depth, always maintaining a level of interest and intrigue. “What an insane amount of work. It was great to see the final production and it was all amazing,” said Steve Uren, wood artist from Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The process of getting a group of artists to step forward and reveal themselves in their personal spaces of creativity was the complete antithesis of how these particular artists are used to representing and selling their work. They are typically traversing the US at this time of year as participants in outdoor Fine Art Festivals. They come to meet and establish a relationship with you, their customer. They thrive on meeting and talking with you, answering your questions, and talking about the inspiration behind their creative art. They appreciated this opportunity to reconnect with you.

The Monterey History & Art Association Is Set to Re-Open the Infamous Salvador Dali Exhibit

PEBBLE BEACH, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 / — Salvador Dali is one of the most celebrated Spanish surrealist painters of the 20th century. Renowned for Melting Clocks (1931) and The Persistence of Memory (1931), his use of color and striking imagery remains revolutionary.

The Monterey History & Art Association is proud to announce the reopening of the Salvador Dali exhibit for July 1st, 2020. As the West Coast's largest private collection, the association has 580 rare lithographs, etchings, sculptures, and tapestries on display.

Dmitry and Rebecca Piterman are thrilled to once again open the doors to the public, and unveil their brand new curated collection of Dali, as well as Monterey’s newest mural. The mural combines the Monterey waterscape with many surrealistic surprises, and was created by Avelino Santoyo-Hernandez, in collaboration with Gerardo Zambrano and Arsenio Baca.

While the ongoing global pandemic has led to extensive social distancing orders, the Art Association has also implemented various protocols to ensure the health and safety of their guests. Their efforts include hiring full-time staff to focus on sanitization while continuously monitoring the number of guests in the vicinity at once.

"Due to strict social distancing mandates we are currently taking every precaution to help mitigate the spread of the virus" states Rebecca, who manages the Exhibition. "We have made it our primary mission to adapt to these difficult times and are confident that we have established a safe space."

Known widely for exploring subconscious imagery, exploring Dali's multimedia works is a once in a lifetime experience.

Upgrade your music experiences with new, in-ear anti-distortion device

Calmer is proving a hit with producers and musicians

Calmer® from Flare Audio enables wearers to naturally ‘upgrade’ their ears.

Calmer can upgrade a standard pair of headphones into an audiophile experience, and take a high end set to another level entirely.”

— Flare CEO, Davies Roberts.

SUSSEX, UK, June 30, 2020 / — A clever new product from British audio innovators Flare Audio, enables people to upgrade their current music set up and all listening experiences, by wearing a small, non-electric in ear device.

Launched June 25th, Calmer® enables wearers to naturally ‘upgrade’ their ears. Moulded from soft-touch flexible silicone, it features a unique technology that minimises distortion in the ear, greatly improving the audio quality we hear in any situation. Calmer can be worn under headphones, for home HiFi listening, in the car, or at concerts; promising to deliver a clearer sound and increased detail.

“Calmer can upgrade a standard pair of headphones into an audiophile experience, and take a high end set to another level entirely,” explains Flare CEO, Davies Roberts. “It enables you to upgrade your current audio set up without spending a fortune to replace it.”

Flare has long identified that audio distortion has a detrimental effect on sound, reducing clarity and detail in the music we hear. Having managed to dramatically minimise distortion in its award-winning range of earphones, Flare turned its attention to the human ear itself.

Our ears have evolved to alert us to danger by adding over 20dB of mid-range resonance, which destroys our ability to hear high definition sound or relax in our modern noisy world. This is known as HRTF (Head Related Transfer Function). While experts say this response was a vital part of our evolution to alert us to the slightest sound or threat, it is an overactive mechanism in today’s modern world where we no longer need to be alert to the snap of a twig, and this added resonance is loading us with unnecessary auditory stress.

Cue Flare’s mission to reduce this resonance and ‘upgrade’ our ears. Calmer is a one size fits all design and does not affect the characteristics (or colouration) of music, it simply diminishes distortion (unwanted noise) from our ears that would otherwise be compromising the sound.

What’s also exciting is that Calmer has been found to reduce stress, by reducing these distortions that would usually trigger the human ‘fight or flight’ response. When wearing them, every day sounds that would normally be uncomfortable or trigger an alert response, such as tube announcements, traffic sirens or phones ringing, suddenly seem less shrill, enabling wearers to feel calmer.

With the World Health Organisation publishing in (2018) that unpleasant city noise contributes to raised stress levels, a multitude of health issues and even increased risk of premature death, this is a pretty incredible bonus feature which could prove hugely beneficial for the nation’s health, as well as our musical enjoyment. Click here for more information on the health benefits of Calmer.

How Calmer Works
Calmer simply changes the way sound is delivered into our ears. It targets resonance by using a tiny waveguide that removes the effect of the Concha (the small shell shape that connects to our ear canal which normally resonates mid and high frequency sounds). Calmer receives sound and guides it accurately into our ears, without losing energy. By reducing this resonance, mid frequency sounds have none of their normal painful aspects, and you will hear more detail in your headphones.

Independent testing by the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), University of Southampton, confirm Flare’s findings. “We conducted a range of tests on Calmer and found it to significantly reduce sound levels at middle to high frequencies (2 kHz – 8 kHz). This successfully meets Flare’s design objective,” says Gergely Orosz of the ISVR.

Flare Audio’s ethos is focused around audio innovation. Its products include award winning earphones and high-end speakers, as well sleeping aids and its patented aluminium and titanium ear protectors.

Calmer: RRP: £19.99 / US $24.99 / Euro €22.99
Available globally from Flare Audio’s website.

Tory Schalkle Discusses The Impact His Ancestor Had on South Dakota Wildlife

Tory JR Schalkle

Though Tory Schalkle calls Minnesota home, his ancestor had a significant impact on the wildlife and culture of South Dakota.

WAYZATA, MINNESOTA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2020 / — Before 1900, South Dakota a single pheasant – its now iconic state animal. While they were some in Western United States, they were sparse in the Midwest. That all changed when Tory Schalkle’s great-great-grandfather, a Redfield farmer, mounted an ambitious project. After raising the necessary funds, Tory Shalkle’s great-great-grandfather travelled across the country to bring back the first pheasants to South Dakota. Since then, pheasants have become South Dakota’s state bird and are on its state quarter – a testament to the impact Tory Schalkle’s ancestor had.

Tory Schalkle Reminisces on His Family’s History

Though it may not sound like an ambitious project, Tory Schalkle’s great-great-grandfather’s trip ended up changing the course of South Dakota’s history. Even Tory Schalkle’s ancestor probably did not appreciate how much of an impact that trip would have on the state. Since he brought back those first pheasants to South Dakota, the pheasant population has boomed. Today, pheasants are the South Dakota state bird (commemorated on the South Dakota state quarter) and are part of a $1 billion industry.

Despite the success of his ancestor’s endeavor, Tory Schalkle is greatly concerned that the pheasant population is declining in South Dakota. A once thriving population is struggling to survive due to various changes in governmental policy and farming practices. Because of that, Tory Schalkle has brought a proposal before South Dakota Governor Noem to try to make the pheasant population thrive again. During our discussion, Tory Schalkle still had a few memorable things to say about his family and their impact on South Dakota:

– “My great-great-grandfather risked a lot to bring pheasants back to South Dakota. It wasn’t for profit or notoriety. As I understand it, he genuinely wanted to improve the wildlife and hunting population for his area. And that population is now under threat. The least I can do is preserve his legacy and that pheasant population.” – Tory Schalkle

– “Wildlife populations take preservation and cultivation – they’re not a static or constant given. Thus, we’ve seen South Dakota’s pheasant population decline because they haven’t been preserved. Of course there’s always competing uses for farmland and subsidies, as there should be. But the pheasant population’s decimation, and the risk that puts on so many’s livelihood and enjoyment, seems to indicate we’ve swung the pendulum too far one way. I’ve laid out to the Governor a lot of specific actions (some costing nothing) that would strike a more productive balance.” – Tory Schalkle

– “Beyond my great-great-grandfather, I’ve actually had minimal interaction with South Dakota. I was born and raised in Minnesota. Most of my career and charitable work has been in Minnesota. And yet, my family name is a huge part of South Dakota’s history. It’s an odd, disconnected legacy.” – Tory Schalkle

– “My ancestor introduced the ring-necked pheasant to South Dakota around the turn of the century. Less than 50 years later, it was already officially declared the state bird. It was a remarkable growth story – one I can’t fathom, but I’m extraordinarily grateful for.” – Tory Schalkle

Triathlon Athlete James L. McEnerney of Kansas City Explains How Competing in Triathlons Can Help You Live Longer

James L. McEnerney Kansas City

Avid triathlon athlete James L. McEnerney of Kansas City explains how competing in triathlons can help you live a longer, healthier life.

KANSAS CITY, KS, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2020 / — James L. McEnerney of Kansas City has competed in numerous triathlons as well as several notable marathons. As an avid athlete, he urges others to compete in triathlons and marathons as a gateway to a healthier lifestyle, and ultimately, a longer, more fulfilling life.

According to James L. McEnerney, roughly 4 million people compete in triathlons every year. He explained that these 4 million people all have something in common — they want to enhance their athletic skills and enjoy the competitive nature of the events.

"There are countless benefits to competing in triathlons, and these benefits can be far greater than when competing in other sports and athletic events," James McEnerney of Kansas City said. "That's because triathlons include the sports of swimming, cycling and running."

James L. McEnerney stated that to compete in triathlons, you must train in all three types of exercise. James McEnerney of Kansas City further explained that triathlon training and competition promotes full-body workouts. The three events, running, swimming and cycling, work different areas of the body, which can promote strengthening more joints, muscles and bones than simply performing one type of exercise. Experts and triathlon enthusiasts explain that these frequent full-body workouts can promote a healthier heart, lungs, and body overall.

"For those looking to lose weight for a longer and healthier life, triathlon training is highly effective," James McEnerney of Kansas City said. "Triathlon training involves intense cardio workouts, which have been linked to losing weight and keeping that weight off."

James L. McEnerney of Kansas City explained that the benefits of triathlons reach beyond physical health. He stated that competing in triathlons can boost mental health by increasing dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine and acetylcholine. All of the increases in those good-feeling hormones mean triathletes can experience superior moods and reduced stress, both of which result in a happier and healthier lifestyle.

"Many athletes don't even know that training for triathlons can reduce the risk of cancer as well," James McEnerney of Kansas City said. "Physical training can reduce your odds of developing some of the most deadly types of cancer, such as colon and breast cancer, prostate cancer, and more."

James L. McEnerney explained that the evidence for triathlon training and competition having a positive effect on overall lifespan is clear. He explained that regular exercise, especially strenuous exercise like triathlon training, can result in a lower risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, depression, obesity and more.

"As an avid triathlete, I hope to see more people competing than ever before in 2020, and beyond," James L. McEnerney said.

Mac & Madi Children’s Stories light-hearted messages will teach everyone that twins are individuals even though they appear to be carbon copies of each other.

Linda, an identical twin, knows all too well about the bond and the challenges of being a twin. She was inspired to write twin books that are fun and focus on individuality.”

— Big Little Press

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2020 / — Twins, Mac & Madi Children’s Stories light-hearted messages will teach everyone that twins are individuals even though they appear to be carbon copies of each other. Children’s book author Linda Herron releases Mac & Madi’s Vacation: About Identical Twins’ Exciting Trip to the Shore! She debuted these now beloved twin characters in early 2019 with her first in the series, Mac & Madi’s Surprise: A Very Different Twins Birthday!

In Mac and Madi’s latest adventure, Herron illustrates the connections that the twins form with people they encounter on their trip to the shore. These kinds of exchanges are a unique part of daily life for identical twins, as people see two individuals who appear to be a carbon copy of each other. As an identical twin herself, Herron is all too familiar with the sometimes silly questions that people tend to blurt out, so she uses this fun vacation adventure to feature the light-hearted message that twins are individuals. Rather than confining twins to roles that compel them to be identical in all aspects, she wants to inspire twins to grow individually, just like all other siblings. Readers will follow along as Mac and Madi navigate common twin questions while having fun at the shore.

Mac & Madi’s Vacation captivate readers as the girls navigate the sometimes-surprising obstacles in their lives as young identical twins. When Mac and Madi set out on their vacation journey, they meet a variety of friendly vacationers who are very curious and have lots of common twin questions for the two girls. Later, however, they also meet an older, wiser woman who is interested in each of them and their individual responses. This connection teaches the others how to communicate more thoughtfully with identical twins, and the girls’ responses are powerful, revealing, and expressive as each of them offers an exuberant answer that allows her own personality to shine.

The book has been reviewed by Barbara Klein, Ph.D., a psychologist who is known for her research on the development of twin identity. Klein observes, “I was so delighted to read about Mac and Madi’s summer vacation and how these twins handled all the questions from the vacationers about being twins. Outsiders or onlookers need to understand that these so-called innocent questions can be hurtful to twins who naturally measure themselves against each other already. Part of growing up as a twin involves developing your individuality and sense that it is good to be different from your twin."

About the author: Born and raised in Rhode Island, Linda Herron knows firsthand what it is like to grow up as an identical twin. In fact, the most wonderful part of her childhood was spending time with her best friend and twin sister.

Because Linda recognizes the unique bond—and the unique challenges—that being a twin entails, she was inspired to create a series of children’s stories about being an identical twin. Her latest book is Mac & Madi's Vacation: About Identical Twins Surprising Trip to the Shore!

When she isn’t writing children’s books, Linda spends much of her time writing business articles and blogs. As a Financial expert, she provides strategic advising that transforms businesses by boosting profitability. Her financial expertise has been featured on media outlets including American Express, LendingTree, and Daily Business News, and she holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Bryant University.

Today, Linda lives in California and enjoys the sunny, seventy-five-degree weather every day. Though her twin still lives in Rhode Island, they visit each other to spend time together.

Brandon Anderson Combats the "Pressures" of Work with Fishing

Brandon Anderson has a Different Way to Decompress from His High-Pressure Success.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, USA, June 29, 2020 / — The business of medical gas systems is a serious one, and it is also a high-pressure one, both literally and figuratively speaking. Just ask Brandon Anderson, who is in the business of installing these vital systems. It is a job that can be life and death, and not only for those who use these important and vital systems. 

Most people go to work, and if it is a bad day, it isn't necessarily a big deal. Brandon Anderson works in an industry where a "bad day" isn't an excuse, and perfection is a requirement, not a goal. When Brandon Anderson does it right, his name is never mentioned. When Brandon Anderson does his job properly, lives are made better and sometimes lives are even saved. And when it works the right way, ER doctors and trauma surgeons are heralded, as they should be, and that is just the way, Brandon Anderson wants it.

So in such a high-pressure position like installing vital medical gas systems for medical facilities throughout Florida, what does Brandon Anderson do to relax? He fishes. But Brandon Anderson simply may not be geared for that much relaxation because it isn't just fishing, but competition fishing that takes much of his spare time.

If he isn't engaged in fishing and offshore fishing tournaments, then you might find Brandon Anderson on the golf course. Of course, that is often where he can be found playing in a tournament for some charity, because golf without competition just might be too relaxing. If his Instagram pics are any indication, however, it just might be the thrill of competition or the excitement of the catch that helps him relax.

From Sarasota FL and now serving medical facilities throughout the Sunshine State, Brandon Anderson obviously doesn't shy away from pressure but thrives on it. For the hospitals and medical offices that rely on med gas systems, that is a good thing. For the patients who benefit from these services, it is a great thing, and for Brandon Anderson – it is just another day at the office.

Staying sharp is a key aspect of what med gas systems are all about, accuracy and detail. That might sound a lot like draining that birdie putt or setting the hook of the big catch. And that sounds like a relaxing time to Brandon Anderson.

"Their booth was full of amazing toys and products," they go on. "I felt the overall theme was playful fun, particularly with Stuffaloons – the easy and inexpensive way to create your own custom balloons," adds just the first of many such Jay At Play reviews.

Stuffaloons join a wealth of new products, including Happy Nappers, Mushabelly, Popzeez, Super Cute Little Babies Dolls, and Boxy Babies, recently or soon-to-be added to Jay At Play's growing collection of dolls, plush toys, youth electronics, collectibles, crafts, and activities.

EOSDT is now available on WAX

EOSDT is now on WAX

EOSDT is now on WAX

EOSDT – a stable coin is now available on WAX blockchain!

This is the dawn of a new era of DeFi on WAX. Phoenix is a platform on WAX which showcases the full potential of the DAPP Network. WEOSDT will be the primary means of interacting with the Phoenix.”

— Michael Gucci

CHICAGO, IL, USA, June 29, 2020 / — Malta Block is excited to announce that EOSDT is now available on WAX!

This is an important milestone and will usher in the era of DeFi on WAX blockchain.
This project is the result of a collaboration between Malta Block, EOSphere and Aloha EOS. We also want to thank Alex Melikhov and Pablo Gabril from Equilibrium, Syed Jafri from EOS Cafe Block, Denis Carrière from EOS Nation and Evan Vandenberg and TM from the WAX team.

It is now possible to send EOSDT from EOS blockchain to WAX blockchain and vice versa. EOSDT is able to move back and forth between EOS and WAX on an IBC bridge built based on an improved version of ZOS – IBC architecture developed by Malta Block.
The new improved version of ZOS – IBC architecture does not depend on dfuse. It only requires a standard nodeos node and does not require any advanced history plugins.

Complete details on how this works is available here:

We could have stopped at building the EOSDT – WAX IBC bridge. At Malta Block, we are always thinking about improving user experience and making users feel comfortable with adoption. We felt that people using WEOSDT on dapps on WAX do not necessarily want to go to EOS, buy EOSDT and then transfer that to WAX.
That is why we now offer a swap contract on WAX that allows users to buy WEOSDT on WAX without the need of a cross chain transfer.

This is made possible with a WEOSDT – WAX swap contract at weosdtwaxswp. This swap contract is based on sx.swap developed by Denis Carrière from EOS Nation. We have modified the contract by adding a circuit breaker which utilizes a custom price feed that we have developed.

We are excited about the future with the availability of EOSDT on WAX. We hope this is the dawn of a new era of DeFi on WAX.

Phoenix is a platform on WAX which showcases the full potential of the DAPP Network. WEOSDT will be the primary means of interacting with the Phoenix platform on WAX. The possibilities and opportunities that are now attainable with a stablecoin on WAX are immense.

This will also greatly help traders and collectors as all the GPK cards and all other upcoming NFTs can now be listed in terms of EOSDT. Removing the volatility of WAX price will simplify the decision making process as everyone can understand what they are paying for the NFTs in terms of a stablecoin. But of course, we are just scratching the surface of this immense opportunity.

About Malta Block
Malta Block is a guild on the WAX blockchain. In addition to maintaining a top-notch block production infrastructure, we offer a wide range of services – from token smart contract design and creation, to managing the resources needed for an airdrop such as RAM and CPU, as well as taking care of all the details that go into conducting a successful airdrop.
Malta Block also offers services as a DAPP Service Provider (DSP) on WAX.

Classic designs from Chéret include his larger-than-life 1894 Palais de Glace (est. $5,000-$6,000)—but the showstopper is his ca. 1905 Project pour Palais des Rois de Sardaigne : Painting (est. $17,000-$20,000), a joyous preliminary work for his mural in the palace’s gallery, which is visible to this day. From Malerba, a large-scale 1910 design, Mele & Ci. / Mode Novità, is sure to impress—as is Roubille’s charming ca. 1909 poster, Spratt’s Patent Ltd. (both est. $10,000-$12,000).

Of course, the pinnacle of Art Nouveau is Alphonse Mucha. 25 of his greatest works will be on offer, including La Dame aux Camelias (est. $25,000-$30,000) and Lorenzzacio (est. $14,000-$17,000), both from 1896. The artist’s decorative panels for the seasons remain classics of design, and several iterations will be available: his iconic 1896 The Seasons (est. $40,000-$50,000), the second variation of The Seasons from 1897 (est. $12,000-$15,000), and a rare 1900 variant of The Seasons with the imprint of L. Brancher and the complete titles and descriptions (est. $45,000-$55,000). Further works include his 1896 Job (est. $15,000-$20,000) and his 1899 Moët & Chandon (est. $30,000-$35,000).

The Belle Epoque continues to enthrall with Toulouse-Lautrec, who chronicled the gritty and enticing night life of Paris. Tour de force works include his 1894 Eldorado / Aristide Bruant (est. $70,000-$90,000), the 1893 Caudieux (est. $35,000-$40,000), and the 1893 Jane Avril (est. $70,000-$90,000). Most notably, his stupendous 1896 La Chaîne Simpson will be available for the first time in nine years (est. $70,000-$90,000).

Offerings from the Art Deco era are similarly robust. 39 works from the legendary Cappiello trace his career from 1900 to 1938, and include Pneumatiques Torrilhon (est. $7,000-$9,000); a spirited 1919 signed gouache maquette, Le Printemps (est. $14,000-$17,000); the playful 1928 Porto Pitters (est. $8,000-$10,000); and his enchanting ca. 1907 Cognac Gautier Frères (est. $7,000-$9,000).

From Charles Loupot, Art Deco classics include the 1925 Huile Raoul Citroën (est. $14,000-$17,000) and the 1930 Cointreau (est. $6,000-$7,000). Most notably, two impressive maquettes will be on offer: the ca. 1917 L’Impartial (est. $7,000-$9,000) and a full-size St. Raphaël drawing from 1947 (est. $40,000-$50,000).
