Can Disco and the Blues be Combined? Don't You Want to Know?

This was the question composer Michael Droste wanted to answer. Through his Play The Blues series at PlayTheBlues.com Droste wanted to teach everyone playing a musical instrument how to play the blues.

Streamwood, IL, November 25, 2013 - This was the question composer Michael Droste wanted to answer. Through his Play The Blues series at PlayTheBlues.com Droste wanted to teach everyone playing a musical instrument how to play the blues. He released 16 different recordings to teach everyone, on every instrument, the blues changes, and give the pros and beginners many choruses to learn how to solo in the blues.


"For this particular release," he stated, "why not combine disco and the blues together and see how it sounds?" Pleased with the results, the recordings are now available for everyone at every online music retailer.

As fan of the Chicago blues scene, he continues to create recordings that combines the blues with jazz, hip hop, techno, and rock. "One should not be limited to one style of music with the blues," he said. "The blues changes slot well into other genres," Droste stated.

As the Trumpet is his main instrument, he could understand the frustration of trying to find some blues recordings for soloing in a key for his instrument. "I wanted the Oboe, Clarinet, Trombone, Piano, Alto Tenor and Soprano Sax players each to have their own dedicated recordings," he stated. "The only solution was to release 16 different recordings, one for each instrument, and provide all levels of musicians with many different musical keys and styles," Droste said. That goal is still being realized with hundreds of recordings released at PlayTheBlues.com

Not wanting to short change any instrument the series is made accessible to all with versions for the guitar, tuba, wood recorders, and drum set. Each recording also includes a mini blues tutorial at the end of the blues choruses. There are instructions at PlayTheBlues.com of some 'magic notes' that will sound good with each recording, and their specific instrument and key.

Luxury Travel Ltd has a Successful World Travel Market London 2013

His two British representatives and Pham Ha, CEO and founder of Luxury Travel Ltd. held high level meetings with representatives of a large number of companies and the leading specialists of the luxury tourism industry.

Hanoi, Vietnam, November 25, 2013 – His two British representatives and Pham Ha, CEO and founder of Luxury Travel Ltd. (www.luxurytravels.asia) held high level meetings with representatives of a large number of companies and the leading specialists of the luxury tourism industry.

“There are many tour operators and travel agents who are interested in our award winning luxury tour operations and who are looking for new luxury travel products in Vietnam thanks to new direct flights and huge demand from British travelers.” said Pham Ha.


“Vietnam is getting more and more popular in the UK and Ireland markets and we have many new contracts and accounts. We are seeing particular demand for Myanmar and the biggest growth is expected for this country, which is becoming more popular in the UK due to political changes and new developments. This year again, Luxury Travel is an official supporter of Responsible Tourism Day at WTM”

He stressed that the UK market is very important to the company and that it is seeking to dominate this market with more staff and increasing the number of private small groups that it serves. This will be primarily through tailor-made holidays via the sales office based in London.

Beautiful beaches, year-round green tropical parks, mighty rivers, unique fishing villages, special culinary characteristics ... are always the force of gravity of Vietnam in the eyes of foreign travelers. In recent years Vietnam has justifiably become one of Asia’s most fashionable destinations for high-end British travelers.

Luxury tourism is not just about limos and five-star hotels, but creating memorable experiences and Luxury Travel ensure that its guests feel part of the place rather than a casual observer, the authentic experience being particularly popular with visitors from Britain.

Getting off-the-beaten track, relaxing on the beach at less visited places such as Con Dao and Phu Quoc as well as combining Vietnam with visits to Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar are great favourites with the UK market.

Vietnam is appealing to British visitors because of its safety, affordable prices, authenticity, lovely weather and convenient direct flights with Vietnam Airlines. Luxury Travel Ltd.’s booking record indicates that British travelers prefer cultural experiences and beach extensions, while many also combine Vietnam and Cambodia or Myanmar into one trip.

“British holidaymakers like custom and private tours, not big groups. The boom in demand suggests that holidaymakers are becoming increasingly canny and watching exchange rates as well as seeking out keenly-priced packages before deciding on their destination. ” he said.

Further to the positive response from the market Pham Ha expects two digit growth in the next year and he confirmed that his representative office in London and sales and marketing team will expand its private stand and come back to WTM 2014 with a bigger exposure.

Vietnam Airlines provide directs flights Hanoi to London and Vietnam receives annually 100.000 Britton travelers and Luxury Travel Ltd (www.luxurytravels.asia) served 1.000 British travelers and enjoyed 200% growth from this market in compare with the last year. The company has rep office and takes part in major trade shows in the UK and expects two digit growth in 2014.

This year, Vietnam expects to attract 7.2 million foreign visitors in all markets and 35 million domestic tourists with revenue of US$9 billion.

In 2012, the tourism industry generated 6.85 million international and 32.5 million domestic trips creating around US$7.6 billion in revenue.

Windy Town Releases: ‘Greatest Hits from One Song Every Day Project’


I thought about raising the stakes, and mulled it over, "Could someone write One Song Every Day?" It just seems to be an absolutely zany thought, and it seems to be such a monumental task.


Bartlett, IL, November 26, 2013 -- Michael Droste, released an album called "Greatest Hits from One Song Every Day Project." “I started to learn about music through the trumpet and still play today. I went to DePaul University on a trumpet scholarship, and then got interested digital recording with computers, synthesizers and MIDI. Technology has come a long way from the old 4 track cassette recorders with out board effects, - to all digital recordings and digital processing done completely in the computer.)” said Droste. He stated, “Could one write 365 songs? - all holidays, every day? - no matter if your sick, no vacations, no time off? - a task to complete every day for one year?” “Currently, I'm in the process of taking my favorite songs and remastering them with today’s technology. I wished I had the time each day to 'fix' the song and make them the way I hear them now… , " said Droste.

Michael Droste was the first person to complete the song a day task. Many have called him the, “Song A Day Guy.” Others have tried to follow and copy the project but Michael Droste was the originator, and all others were followers.

Christina Moss Naturals Reveals The Shocking Truth About Facial Moisturizers

Christina Moss Naturals all organic and 100% natural skin and hair care line actually works. They have review after review on their website of customers that have had excellent, and even amazing, results with these products.

Los Angeles, California, November 23, 2013 - Christina Moss Naturals reveals the shocking truth about facial moisturizers. In an interview with the creator of Christina Moss Naturals all organic and natural skin and hair care line, she told us the following:

“Does your facial moisturizer contain hidden chemical fragrances that are disrupting your hormones and causing cancer?*

“Is your facial moisturizer being preserved with ingredients that mimic estrogen, a primary problem in the development of breast cancer?**



“While the idea of eating facial moisturizer is a disgusting concept, the fact is, we may be doing severe damage to our insides by smearing it onto our skin. That’s because there are chemical ingredients in most mainstream facial moisturizers (and other cosmetics) that absorb through the skin and into the bloodstream at a rate that is estimated at 10 times the concentration of an oral dose!***

“If your moisturizer contains fragrances or chemical preservatives you may be playing Russian roulette with your health. And these are just a few reason I developed a completely natural facial moisturizer that does not contain chemical fragrances or chemical preservatives.

“It took me eight years to develop my formula and my hard work has really paid off. Christina Moss Naturals Moisturizer is naturally anti-aging. It gently smoothes out fine lines while it moisturizes with emulsified organic oils and glycerin that help replenish the skin without blocking pores. - Christina Moss”

RAACE Boosts its Anti-Child Abuse Efforts by Joining #GivingTuesday

Note: RAACE founder and Executive Director available for interviews re: #GivingTuesday

Baltimore, MD, November 23, 2012 - What Black Friday and Cyber Monday are to the retail world, #Giving Tuesday (December 3, 2013) is quickly becoming for the world of philanthropy, and this growing grassroots movement is having an impact on non-profits throughout Maryland. Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere (RAACE), a Maryland non-profit dedicated to the prevention of child sexual abuse, is one of #GivingTuesday’s newest partners.


RAACE, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded 10 years ago by Baltimore businessman Kenneth Smith. The organization’s mission is to raise public awareness and provide age-appropriate educational tools to help families protect their children.

Child sexual abuse statistics are at epidemic proportions — 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 7 boys are sexually abused by age 18 — yet the topic is vastly under-discussed. The silence is caused in part to the fact that over 90% of the perpetrators aren’t strangers, but are someone the child knows and trusts.

There are 39 million survivors of child sexual abuse in the U.S and most never have the chance to share their story, an action that can be an important part of the healing process for some people. As part of #GivingTuesday, RAACE will offer survivors the opportunity to tell their story, anonymously if they prefer. Survivors can email or send a letter to RAACE and members of the organization will record and post their stories on its social media outlets, giving survivors a voice and bringing their experiences out of the shadows.

“Exposing the prevalence of abuse and educating people are first steps towards preventing it," explains RAACE founder Kenneth Smith. “That’s why we’re sharing survivors’ stories and why we stage our annual ‘prevention tour’. We travel around the region to family-friendly events and we use our two-story, carnival-style "Big Wheel" to catch the attention of event-goers and teach them how they can help prevent child sexual abuse.”

RAACE is a #GivingTuesday partner for the first time this year to help fund its prevention tour and spread the word about ways to prevent children from becoming abuse victims. The #Giving Tuesday movement started in 2013 as an innovative approach designed to transform how people think about and participate in the giving season that coincides with the winter holidays. #GivingTuesday takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year on December 3, 2013.

“Rather than focusing all our energies on holiday sales and shopping, #GivingTuesday reminds us what the holidays are really about—caring for and sharing with others,” adds Smith. “It’s a great way to shine the spotlight on the many, many ways we can each help people in our own community, around the country and across the globe.”

Ecotech Institute’s Clean Jobs Index Shows More Than One Million Clean Energy Jobs Exist

National study, from the third quarter of 2013, also notes an increase in alternative fueling stations and ranks the top states in energy efficiency

Denver, Colo, November 21, 2013 - Ecotech Institute’s Clean Jobs Index, a tool to compare states’ use and development of clean energy, found more than one million job postings in the clean energy sector from July 1, 2013, through September 30, 2013. This shows a 54 percent increase in needed clean energy employees, evidence that the sector is rapidly growing and in need of experts.


Ecotech Institute, the first and only school dedicated to educating students solely in clean energy fields such as solar, wind and renewable energy, launched the Clean Jobs Index in January 2013 to provide objective job information about the clean tech industry. The Index also looks at various sustainability factors such as alternative fueling stations, LEED projects and total energy consumption in all 50 states. The Clean Jobs Index defines a clean tech job as one where workers make their business more environmentally friendly, use fewer natural resources or produce goods or provide services that benefit the environment.

To complement the increase in these clean energy job opportunities, 1,543 new alternative fueling stations opened across the United States since the second quarter 2013. Between the months of July and September, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington and Tennessee had the most alternative fueling stations per capita.

Highlights from the Clean Jobs Index, Q3 2013

Number of U.S. Clean Jobs Postings:
1,099,734 (a 54 percent increase from Q2 2013)

New Alternative Fueling Stations (Since Q2 2013):
1,543

States With the Most Alternative Fueling Stations (Per Capita):
Hawaii, Oregon, Washington and Tennessee

In Q3, Ohio Moved From 24th in Energy Efficiency to 2nd in the Nation

The Most Energy Efficient States (in no particular order):
California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island*, Vermont and Washington

States With the Most Incentives for Sustainability and Renewables (in no particular order):
California, Texas, Minnesota, Washington and Oregon

*(Rhode Island added more incentives and rebates than any other state in Q3.)

“This data shows a long-awaited boom in the clean tech industry, from the increases in alternative fueling options to a massive amount of clean job opportunities,” said Kyle Crider, Ecotech Institute’s Program Chair and Manager of Environmental Operations. “States now offer more sustainability and renewable incentives than we’ve ever seen before, which proves that they’re taking the power of the industry seriously. In the state of the current economy, over 1 million job opportunities is a truly incredible statistic. We’re proud that Ecotech is the only higher education institution out there devoted entirely to helping students become successful professionals in this rapidly expanding sector.”

Ecotech Institute’s Clean Jobs Index is an aggregation of statistics by state, developed on a number of factors. LEED projects, energy efficiency, green pricing, net metering, total energy consumption and alternative fueling stations are all considered when ranking states. Higher index numbers suggest a state’s propensity to embrace renewable energy and energy efficiency. It may also indicate a greater possibility for employment in that local clean economy sector, though the Clean Jobs Index in no way indicates the presence or the promise of any specific job opportunities. Data is gathered regularly from independent research entities including: American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency, U.S. Energy Information Administration, U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Green Building Council.

IEP Technology Proves Viability of Geothermic Fuel Cell™ for Oil & Gas Production

IEP Technology's full feature geothermic fuel cell prototype built by Delphi Automotive is successfully tested at Colorado School of Mines' Colorado Fuel Cell Center. This is the second milestone IEP TEchnology has made on schedule.

Denver, CO, November 22, 2013 — Researchers and oil company representatives from around the world recently toured the first full-featured Geothermic Fuel Cell™ (GFC), a new innovation that can produce greater efficiency in extracting oil from shale.

IEP Technology and Delphi Automotive are working collaboratively to develop this innovation and have executed a Memorandum of Understanding under which Delphi Automotive expects to integrate solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology into GFCs.


The unit was shown in October during the 33rd Oil Shale Symposium presented by the Colorado School of Mines and the Colorado Fuel Cell Center (CFCC). Initial testing led by Dr. Neal Sullivan, Ph.D., an associate professor at Colorado School of Mines and director of the CFCC, proved that the GFC can be operated at the high temperatures needed to heat oil shale formations to produce oil in situ or in place.

“This is an exciting opportunity for all involved. It’s a true collaboration between IEP Technology (IEPT), Delphi and the CFCC to test the full-feature GFC prototype. We are bridging theory to industrial use in an exciting new way at our lab,” said Sullivan.

The multi-stack, full-featured GFC module follows successful testing of a single stack GFC in April 2013. This is the second major technology milestone IEPT has met with relative ease.

“We could not be happier to meet this second milestone with such success in proving our multi-stack, full-featured GFC module. Our next major step will be to couple and test multiple modules in the lab in preparation for our in-ground, pre-field testing at a location on Colorado School of Mines property,” said Mark Wall, IEPT’s Manager of Projects.

IEPT selected Delphi’s SOFC as the most advanced and production-viable stack available today. Delphi’s SOFC converts chemical energy in conventional fuels directly into useful electrical power and heat without combustion, resulting in minimal emissions. Electric heaters have been used to extract oil from shale in situ, but IEPT’s concept has the potential to be much more efficient and does not require a dedicated electrical power plant.

Delphi has designed SOFCs and completed development projects to generate electric power for commercial vehicle auxiliary units, stationary and military applications. Delphi is committed to applying its SOFC technology to green energy applications such as the GFC, and brings years of automotive component manufacturing and system integration experience to support IEPT in developing its technology for oil shale production applications.

“Beyond the application of extracting oil from shale, we have always envisioned multiple uses for the GFCs such as fresh water production from brackish underground aquifers and landfill pyrolysis in addition to the in situ production of unconventional hydrocarbons,” said Al Forbes, IEPT’s president and CEO. “Delphi’s ability to engineer and adapt its existing SOFC technology to GFC applications, manufacture on a volume basis and distribute globally will go a long way in making this a reality.”

The in-ground testing of the full-feature GFC modules scheduled for 2014 on Colorado School of Mines property will include the in situ installation and operation of multiple GFC modules. It will also test all related equipment for fuel conditioning and supply and power management for the green electrical power produced as a byproduct of the GFC applications.

About IEP Technology
IEP Technology (IEPT) is the owner of the patented, breakthrough in-situ Geothermic Fuel Cell™(GFC™) system. GFCs create heat for use in the recovery of unconventional hydrocarbons while producing additional energy to be sold back into the market as clean, baseload electricity. IEPT is currently focused on the economic and environmentally responsible recovery of oil shale and oil sands. The company holds exclusive rights to broad, patented GFC technologies in the U.S. and Canada, and has strategic partnerships with Uintah Resources, Inc., Delphi Corporation and Colorado School of Mines.

SAFE International has delivered training to over one hundred thousand (175,000) people since 1994.

SAFE International Certified Partner instructors understand the challenges that women face and offer classes, group seminars and private lessons to fit into anyone's schedule.

SAFE International has become North America’s most popular high school course for both boys and girls due to the fact that they don't teach martial arts, but rather a practical approach to personal safety with an emphasis on recognizing and avoiding potentially dangerous situations.

Women have more reasons to learn these skills. Here is the video from Global TV featuring the SAFE International Self Defense Party:

Global TV Toronto Features SAFE International Scarborough Women’s Self Defense Parties

Scarborough Self Defense, Global TV Toronto Features SAFE International Scarborough Women’s Self Defense Parties.

Toronto, ON, November 18, 2013 - (Straight Line PR) - Scarborough Self Defense, Global TV Toronto Features SAFE International Scarborough Women’s Self Defense Parties.


SAFE International™ is the leading provider of mobile women’s self defense training in North America. SAFE International has taught more than 175,000 women since 1994. Global TV recently featured the SAFE International Scarborough Self Defense Party to its’ viewers. SAFE International has developed a reputation for not only delivering quality instruction designed to deal with real life violence, but also using a teaching methodology that makes the client comfortable to talk about a serious topic, as well as participate in their realistic self defense drills. Most self defense courses are quite intimidating. Having to train with up to 30 other women who are unfamiliar with each other, immediately puts them in a teaching environment that is not optimal. With a SAFE International Scarborough self defense party you gather a group of friends, family, or co-workers, and not only learn potentially life-saving instruction, but also have a lot of fun during those 4 hours. And the fact that SAFE International is a mobile self defense company, makes it even more convenient for you. One of their favourite reasons for teaching women as you will see in this Global TV video is how receptive the women are to the skills that SAFE International provides. This can be attributed to their appreciating the value in what is taught. While most men are receptive, they are usually more interested on a different level involving the male ego and wanting to know how to fight. Women are interested in learning, based more on their survival in today’s reality. Each skill or tactic that is taught could potentially save their life and you can see it in the way they practice and adopt the new skill.
