DeNations Hosts NFT Artwork Exhibition, Celebrating Genesis Block of the DeNations Artwork Chain

HONG KONG,
July 15, 2021 (Newswire.com) –

DeNations is a blockchain-powered metaverse platform based in Hong Kong that everyone can own nations, build cities/civilizations, and earn tokens.

In DeNations, ownership of core assets is represented by Ethereum NFT (Non-Fungible Token). Players can register their NFTs at DeNations’ metaverse platform (http://play.denations.com), run their nations and earn token (DENA) profits.

These NFTs are currently trading on OpenSea and DeNations was ranked 4th in terms of trading volume under the Virtual World category.

As DeNations is becoming noticeable each day, it has recently released a new collaboration project called DeNations Art Chain, a decentralized ecosystem where various talented artists can easily and sustainably produce valuable NFT arts.

A contemporary artist Jeon Byeong Sam is chosen as an artist of the Genesis Block of DeNations Art Chain. He has developed a global reputation with large-scale media installation art and also been creating works of art that represent the relationship between the seen and unseen within the realms of the analog and digital. Collaborated with DeNations Art Chain, he recreated the 193 ‘National Flags’ through his series, which symbolizes and conveys the notion of the theme “Things You See Only When They Disappear.” 

Flags of each country are created as digital images; the original shape of the flag disappears and is reborn as an abstract striped image throughout the process of decomposing and recombining one pixel at a time. These artworks will be issued as Non-Fungible Token (NFT) in the blockchain.

To commemorate these works, the DeNations and the artist hosted an offline exhibition, under the title of that exclusively reveals 207 NFTs and 207 pieces of physical arts that related to each other. The first drop is on 14th July UTC 8:00 AM; a unique edition of 15 national flags will be disclosed. 207 Physical arts that were exhibited, will be shipped to the buyer of unique edition after the exhibition.

In order to let more people get familiar with the concept of NFT, Defi, and metaverse by having their own NFTs in their wallets, DeNations holds an online event where everyone can claim a free Art NFT. This Special Art NFT has two major in-metaverse functions: “Art Farming” and “DGDP Boosting.” Unlike the other common NFTs, NFTs of the Art Chain Block are profitable under the support of the DeNations metaverse ecosystem. 

By observing how the disparate concepts of art, blockchain technology, nations merge together harmoniously, we are witnessing the beginning of another surrealistic world. DeNations Art Chain project and Jeon Byeong-Sam’s artworks will be a meaningful step in the art history and blockchain industry. Moreover, this exhibition will be the world’s first NFT art exhibition sponsored by the blockchain-based Metaverse.

Ché Ahn Presents 'Main With Conviction' an Occasion With Mike Pompeo to Promote Power in Biblical Values Towards All Odds

PASADENA, Calif.,
July 15, 2021 (Newswire.com) –

Presented by Harvest International Ministry (HIM), Revive California (HIM’s local initiative), and Latino Coalition for Israel, ‘Leading with Conviction’ is an exclusive single-day leadership forum taking place on July 22nd, 2021 in Pasadena, California. Its mission is to highlight the power of upholding biblical values in the face of extreme social, cultural and political opposition.
Former U.S. Secretary of State and CIA director Mike Pompeo is the keynote speaker, and HIM President Ché Ahn will be hosting the event alongside Apostle Mario Bramnick. Special guests include former Alaska state Governor Sarah Palin and Pastor Andrew Brunson.
Mike Pompeo served as the director of the CIA from January 2017 to April 2018 and as the 70th U.S. Secretary of State from April 26, 2018 – January 20, 2021, both under President Donald Trump. He was a four-term member of the House of Representatives in Kansas’ 4th Congressional District. He also served as a captain in the United States Army after graduating first in his class at West Point in 1986.
Ché Ahn is the founder and senior pastor of Harvest Rock Church. He is also the founder and president of Harvest International Ministry, a global reformation movement in over 65 nations with 65,000 affiliated churches and organizations. He currently serves as International Chancellor of Wagner University, a worldwide apostolic university centered on training saints for hands-on, practical ministry. In 2020, Ché soared to national recognition in 2021, when the U.S. Supreme Court granted a favorable historic settlement—setting a precedent to ensure the constitutional right to worship for all Americans in perpetuity.
Sarah Palin is a politician, commentator and author who served as the 9th governor of Alaska from 2006-2009. She was the running mate of Republican nominee John McCain in the 2008 presidential election. Recognized as one of TIME’s “100 Most Influential People” and Forbes’ “100 Most Powerful Women,” Governor Palin is also one of only 21 women on Smithsonian’s “100 Most Significant Americans of All Time” list.
Mario Bramnick is the president of the Latino Coalition for Israel, which boasts a vision to establish the largest Hispanic pro-Israel organization in America. He addressed the United Nations on Global Anti-Semitism: A Threat to International Peace and Security as a keynote speaker. Mr. Bramnick has met with nine heads of state to communicate LCI’s vision.
Andrew Brunson is the former pastor of the Izmir Dirilis Resurrection Church, a small Presbyterian congregation in Izmir, Turkey. He resided there for 23 years until he was falsely accused of terrorism in October 2016. He spent two years in Turkish prisons before returning to the United States in October 2018 after a dramatic sentencing and release. Andrew and his wife Norine’s ministry, WaveStarters, is focused on aiding the Muslim world, persecuted church, and preparing believers to stand in difficult times.
Three ticket packages will be offered for the event: General Admission, Dinner with Event Speaker’s Panel + Q&A and VIP Access & Reception.
This is a can’t-miss opportunity inspiring those with conservative values and a biblical worldview to boldly affect their spheres of influence, leaving a legacy of good in their wake. Attendees will meet like-minded individuals, share in empowering discussions and be introduced to new avenues of support in fearlessly facing opposition.
The event will take place on July 22, 2021 in Pasadena, CA at the Ambassador Auditorium from 10 A.M. to 10 P.M. Tickets for the event can be purchased here.

Alo Home Restoration Facilities to Develop into Oro Home

MALIBU, Calif.,
July 15, 2021 (Newswire.com) –

To avoid confusion in the marketplace with regard to a trademark issue, Alo House Recovery Centers is announcing a name change and will be rebranding all of its marketing efforts under the umbrella “Oro House Recovery Centers,” beginning Sept. 1, 2021.

All services, locations, and treatment staff for Oro House Recovery Centers will be identical to Alo House in every respect, with the exception of the new name.

Co-founder Evan Haines said, “We wanted to take this opportunity to choose a name that really speaks to who we are and what we do. Oro is Spanish for ‘gold.’ So for us, since everything we do is with the sole aim of being the gold standard in addiction treatment, this new name felt like the perfect choice.

“‘Oro,’ or ‘gold,’ also speaks to the metaphor of recovery as a kind of alchemical transformation. There is a magic to the recovery process, and alchemy provides us with the perfect way of describing it. Commonly known as a technique for turning base metals into gold, alchemy is the ancient art of transformation. And for us, gold represents love, connection, wholeness, and essentially, the healed psyche,” Haines continued.

For more than 10 years, Alo House has represented the very best the recovery field has to offer. This award-winning, state-licensed residential addiction treatment center is based in Malibu, California, with multiple locations in Los Angeles. The company offers unparalleled treatment for substance use disorders, drug and alcohol detox, and dual diagnosis mental health disorders to clients in Southern California, across the country, and around the world.

We are proud to say that Oro House will continue to build on the culture of compassionate care that we established over a decade ago, and will continue to provide the gold standard of addiction treatment services for all of our clients.

About Oro House Recovery Centers

Oro House Recovery Centers is licensed and accredited by the California Department of Health Care Services, earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval,® and is LegitScript certified. The Oro House Recovery Centers rehabilitation philosophy and Compassionate Care Model® have become industry benchmarks, and are practiced by Oro House’s highly experienced, interdisciplinary team of caring professionals, and seasoned experts in the fields of behavioral health and addiction.

Celebrating Summer time in July With the New Gya Labs Aromatherapy Assortment

DOVER, Del.,
July 15, 2021 (Newswire.com) –

This summer, Gya Labs has rolled out a new collection of aromatherapy products, consisting of a variety of essential oils to complement the existing collection of plant-based natural products. Launched in July 2021, these 15 new essential oils were specifically curated and collected by the team at Gya Labs to complement the mission of transforming simple daily routines into elegant self-care sessions every day. The newly launched products bring Gya Labs’ collection of single pure essential oils to 71, with more on the way. This summer’s aromatherapy highlights include the essential oils of cajeput, coffee and camphor.

The team at Gya Labs spotlighted the new Cajeput Essential Oil to help freshen up indoor air environments when diffused and freshen up the tense, frazzled mind when inhaled. Cajeput oil originates from Indonesia, where the local name “kayu putih” gave rise to the name “cajeput”. Gya Labs recommends diluting it with a skin-friendly carrier oil for a relaxing massage or dropping a few drops onto the corners of a bed or pillow for a relaxing night’s sleep.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a natural, plant-based addition to their aromatherapy collection, Camphor Essential Oil is the ideal choice. The brand’s current repertoire already includes several essential oils with soothing properties, which were the inspiration behind this product. Camphor oil has many applications in DIY soaps and deodorants due to its fresh, woodsy scent and antibacterial properties. Around the home, camphor oil can also be used as an insect repellant or as an alternative to mothballs. 

And finally, for those who need a brain-boosting scent to start their day (or evening), Gya Labs Coffee Essential Oil is a no-brainer. This uplifting oil is ideally diffused in an aroma diffuser to energize the mood of the room and invigorate the mind, or it can also be diluted with carrier oils or mixed in with skincare products to restore youthful complexions or uplift puffy skin. All in all, Gya Labs’ newly launched products aims to contribute a holistic addition to any aromatherapist’s repertoire of ingredients or to anybody looking for a plant-based option to help sooth and uplift their spirits. 

###

Gya Labs believes that a little self-care and pampering goes a long way. Currently, the brand’s collection includes a range of single and blended essential oils, organic essential oils, and now to build upon the aromatherapy range, the skincare and body care lines. Having a self-care routine not only makes us look good, it also brings a sense of comfort and self-confidence. Shop Gya Labs aromatherapy range online to enjoy a discount of 15% and free shipping for orders above US $70. Terms and conditions apply.

Psychological Well being Leaders and Celebrities Collect to Advocate for Black Maternal Psychological Well being

HOUSTON,
July 15, 2021 (Newswire.com) –

Across the country from July 19-25, mental health leaders, government officials, and non-profit organizations are gathering virtually and in-person for the Shades of Blue Project’s Black Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week with one common mission: to uplift and empower more black birthing people with the mental health resources they need to thrive. Hosted annually by the non-profit organization The Shades of Blue Project, this year’s #BMMHW2021 is dedicated to promoting health equity for more black birthing people across their birth experience so they can reclaim their joy and reinstate their peace of mind.

These conversations couldn’t be more important as 2020 was a year of reckoning for birthing people due to the disproportionate mental health impact of COVID-19. It exposed existing racial disparities and inequalities in a system that continues to lack acknowledgement, respect, and support for their everyday lives.

•    Rates of PPD in new & expectant moms have doubled during COVID, with black moms at 2-3x higher risk but are nearly 2X less likely to receive mental health treatment.•    From dismissed medical needs to birthing complications, black women are more likely to experience traumatic births and the mental health consequences that follow.•    Cultural barriers and a lack of representation in the mental health field continue to limit black women from seeking help – according to American Psychological Association, only 5.3% of the psychology professionals are black. Of the estimated 41,000 psychiatrists in the U.S., only 2% are black according to the American Psychiatric Association – despite making up 13% of the U.S. population. 

Their year’s week-long series of events includes participation from organizations such as the White House Maternal Health Council and ACOG, as well as celebrity allies including actress Cherie Johnson and famed hip-hop DJ & producer Spinderella. 

Highlights of the week’s festivities include t the Grand Opening of The Shades of Blue Project’s Maternal and Mental Health Resource Center in Houston, The State of Black Maternal Mental Health Roundtable, the INSPIRE Community Brunch, and the INSPIRE Postpartum Depression Awareness Walk.

With July being Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, the focus on birthing people underscores a population of birthing people who continue to be underdiagnosed, underserved, and misrepresented.

“Black Maternal Mental Health Week was created to help push awareness during Minority Mental Awareness Month and enact action around Black maternal mental health complications affecting Black birthing people during and after childbirth,” said Kay Matthews, Executive Director of The Shades of Blue Project. “This year’s campaign is issuing a Call-to-Action to commit to incorporating black maternal mental health in all areas of maternal health practices, thus changing the current way maternal mental health goes untreated among black birthing people. The time is now to make shift happen.”
