VALLETTA, MALTA, November 1, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Ganapati Group, known in the online casino industry for its distinctive Japanese-themed slot games, held an exclusive event on October 30th to officially announce the launch of the G8C token, to be issued by subsidiary, GanaEight Coin Limited. The launch was strategically planned to coincide with Malta Blockchain Week, kicking off the week of blockchain-related conferences and events in style.

The party took place at the spectacular Grade 1 listed palace, Palazzo Parisio, in Naxxar, and was attended by a whole host of top names in blockchain, iGaming and tech from all over the world. Not only that, but key members of the Maltese government were in attendance, including Kurt Farrugia, the Head of Communications of the Government of Malta.

The Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat, also previously declared his full support for the Ganapati Group’s blockchain-based initiative, recognising the launch of the G8C token as a significant step towards Malta becoming a world leader in technical innovation. Muscat went so far as to record a special video message, which was broadcast at the party, expressing this sentiment to the 300-odd guests in attendance.

The G8C token brings with it an entirely new approach to online casinos. It represents an inventive merging of blockchain technology with online gaming – the token is not only a digital currency to be used on online casinos, but is designed to be bet directly on its own original blockchain platform.

The token offers a number of standout features, a particularly noteworthy one being the lack of transaction fees required to bet with it, enabling quick and cheap play. The G8C token describes itself as a new form of stablecoin – it will hold a stable value, therefore providing investors with lower risk and greater reassurance. This marks a first for the iGaming industry, as no other online casino ICOs are offered as such.

The token’s launch saw an unforgettable evening at Palazzo Parisio, with highlights including the various types of Japanese sake on offer and the delicious sushi prepared and served by an authentic sushi chef from Japan. In continuation of the prevailing Japanese theme, one of the most remarkable moments of the night was the mesmerising performance from a real-life geisha, flown in from Kyoto, Japan. The geisha and accompanying Japanese musicians, playing traditional Japanese instruments such as the shamisen (a three-stringed guitar-like instrument), put on a spellbinding show which transported party guests to olden-day Japan.

The tempo was raised at the masquerade afterparty, held at the elegant TwentyTwo in Portomaso, which saw the fun continue well into the early hours.

With such a memorable Japanese theme running through the launch party, it is not surprising that the event attracted significant attention from both industry VIPs and national media alike, well and truly putting the Ganapati Group and G8C on the map. The success of the launch and the guests’ obvious interest in G8C has left a distinct air of excitement about what is to come next from the Ganapati Group.

Hundreds Gather to Protest the Psychiatric Drugging and Shocking of Children

Hundreds of men, women and children made their voices heard at the 2018 Psych Congress in Orlando.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights held a demonstration in Orlando at the Psych Congress protesting the drugging and shocking of children.

We want to know why ECT, which has been condemned as torture by the United Nations, is being used on children.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, held a demonstration in Orlando at the Psych Congress protesting the drugging and electroshocking of children.

Marching through the streets to the chant of “Don’t Drug Our Kids! Don’t Shock Our Kids! Leave Our Kids Alone!” hundreds of men, women and children made their voices heard at the 2018 Psych Congress in Orlando. Organized to raise awareness on the labeling, drugging and electroshocking of children by the Florida chapter of CCHR, the protest received tremendous support from those witnessing the event.

Currently over 8 million U.S. children are being prescribed psychiatric drugs, with more than 1 million between the ages of zero to five and reports show that psychotropic drug prescriptions among babies doubled from 2013 to 2014 despite the more than 400,000 adverse reaction reports filed with the U.S. FDA. [1,2,3]

Even more disturbing is the fact that the American Psychiatric Association is now lobbying the FDA, which regulates the electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) device, to allow them broader use of electroshock on the public, including use on children, stating “Having access to a rapid and effective treatment such as ECT is especially meaningful in children and adolescents.” [4]

“We want to know why psychiatric drugs for kids are being promoted so heavily to parents, teachers and health care professionals,” said Diane Stein, president of CCHR Florida. “And we want to know why ECT, which has been condemned as torture by the United Nations, is being used on children.”

In light of the fact that the FDA admits ECT can cause cardiovascular complications, memory loss, cognitive impairment, brain damage and death and that psychiatrists admit they do not know how ECT “works,” CCHR is calling upon the state of Florida to ban the electroshock (ECT) device. Those interested are asked to sign the petition. To learn more, please call 727-442-8820 or visit www.cchrflorida.org.

All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Rev. Frederick Shaw: Rallying the NAACP to End Psychiatric Abuse of African American Children

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights applauds debut of a new documentary highlighting one man’s fight against the multi-billion dollar psychiatric industry.

Today, African Americans are over-represented in foster care, the juvenile justice system, prison and the homeless, where they are candidates for psychiatric oppression—drugs—and other abuse.”

— Reverend Fred Shaw

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — CCHR, a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, applauds the debut of a new documentary highlighting one man’s fight against the multi-billion dollar psychiatric industry.

In a new documentary in “The Voices for Humanity” series on the Scientology TV network, human rights advocate Rev. Frederick Shaw, Jr. takes on the multi-billion dollar psychiatric interests in drugging and electroshocking children, especially in his African American community. As the international spokesperson for the international headquarters of CCHR and a Vice President of the Inglewood-South Bay branch of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), Rev. Shaw championed the national NAACP’s unanimous passage of two resolutions opposing electroshock treatment and psychotropic drugging of children.

“Psychiatry has never been a friend of African Americans,” Shaw states. And today, he adds, that enmity is shown in the alarming rate of African American children placed in foster care or in the juvenile justice system where they are labeled with a mental disorder as a pretext to be given psychotropic drugs.

Shaw is a powerful voice steeped in firsthand experience: A native of Compton, California, and a former Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputy he co-founded an organization contracted to serve at-risk youth from ages 12–18 years old. He found there was an over representation of African American children in foster care and the juvenile justice system. Here they were targets for mind-altering drugs, which he refused to give adolescents in his care. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors awarded him for his work with foster care children and youth on probation. [1]

Through his work with CCHR, he also became aware that electroshock treatment—the psychiatric practice of sending up to 460 volts of electricity through the brain to treat depressed moods, while knowing that this cannot cure—spurred him to lead a nationwide campaign to raise awareness of the brain-damaging effects of the treatment and call for an end to the abuse. Last year, as a Vice President of the Inglewood-South Bay branch of the NAACP, Shaw helped obtain a national NAACP resolution supporting a ban on ECT for children, adolescents and young adults.

He also helped achieve a similar resolution to protect foster care and other children from psychotropic drugs. As Shaw points out, African-American children are placed in foster care at twice the rate of white children and are more likely to remain in foster care longer and less likely to be returned home. By the time they reach the age of 18, 53 percent of black children in the U.S. experience a child protective services investigation compared to 37 percent of children in general. [2,3]

The unanimously passed national NAACP resolution calls for legislative protections for foster children, stating: “Foster children are being given cocktails of powerful psychotropic drugs and federal inspectors found more than half the children nationwide are poorly monitored.” According to studies and drug regulatory agency warnings, these drugs have adverse effects, including stroke, pancreatitis, obesity, and diabetes. A variety of drugs targeted towards the central nervous system are associated with cardiac side effects, including arrhythmia and sudden death. [4,5,6]

• The Government Accountability Office (GAO) estimates that up to 39 percent of foster care children are prescribed psychotropic drugs. [7]
• The Congressional Research Service also found the number of children in foster care on a psychiatric drug was more than four times the rate among children overall. [8]
• An analysis of national Medicaid claims for foster youth found 49 percent were taking antipsychotics and 48 percent were on antidepressants despite a "black box" warning — the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) most serious drug labeling — that antidepressants may increase the risk of suicidal thinking and behavior in some children and adolescents. [9]
• Psychiatrists prescribe 93 percent of the drugs dispensed to foster care youths, according to study published in Pediatrics. [10]

“Today, African Americans are over-represented in foster care, the juvenile justice system, prison and the homeless, where they are candidates for psychiatric oppression—drugs—and other abuse,” Shaw states. “Therefore, I feel privileged that the Scientology Network chose my work for its Voice for Humanity series because it will further raise very necessary awareness about the abuses and racism that occurs in the mental health field to help put an end to these. It provides a voice to a wider community—those that may be silenced by drugs and electroshock or who are being forced onto brain damaging ‘treatment’ simply because they are Black or a minority,” Shaw says.

Rev. Shaw regularly tours community leaders and groups through CCHR International’s “Psychiatry: An Industry of Death” museum that details the history of psychiatry’s abuses, including racism dating back to the “Father of American psychiatry,” Benjamin Rush, who declared in the late 1700s that African Americans were “diseased.”

“Reverend Shaw is an inspiration to us all,” stated Diane Stein president of the Florida chapter of CCHR. “His dedication and passion to fight for justice is unparalleled.” Ms. Stein is also featured on the Voices for Humanity series for her work in exposing unjust involuntary psychiatric examination of children and other mental health human rights abuses.

Preserve, Protect, and Defend the Constitution

Author Presents A True-blooded American At The Miami Book Fair 2018!

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The books are definitely coming to downtown Miami as the nation’s finest literary festival, the Miami Book Fair International holds its annual celebration. This eight-day literary party will commence on November 11 with over a hundred-thousand readers and writers in attendance. Distinguished authors from the United States and other parts of the globe, as well as book lovers, will be gracing the Fair and its many activities.

Formerly known as “Books by the Bay”, the Miami Book Fair was founded in 1984 by Miami-Dade College. The growth and success of the very first event which took place in the same year were endeavored by Miami-Dade College in cooperation with the Miami-Dade Public Library System, Wolfson Campus President, Eduardo J. Padron, and local independent bookstore owners Mitchell Kaplan of Books & Books and Craig Pollock of BookWorks. The team had reached their success during the 90’s, when the two-day street fair grew steadily and became the largest literary festival in the country, thus acquiring its well-earned name, Miami Book Fair.

AuthorCentrix celebrates its second year as one of the exhibitors at the Fair. The company will be gracing the event with Bill Terrain, a true-blooded American. This year at the Fair, he brings to the readers, an autobiography entitled Preserve, Protect, and Defend the Constition: Written By An Old American that captures the interest and attention of every straight-thinking American. A chance for one-to-one Author Interview and Book Signing with Terrel await everyone!

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. In Terrel’s piece of work, Preserve, Protect, and Defend the Constition: Written By An Old American, every American will be awakened by the words of a conservative Republican who never stopped believing in his country and its capability to regain its principles that seemed to have been overshadowed by the worldly resources. Issues on how leaders are accountable for leading the nation, bad policies of the Obama administration and details delivered by the media are revealed. The book offers an autobiography and part political opinion essay – an eye-opener to every American citizen who cares about the future of the United States of America.

The Festival will bring over hundreds of renowned national and international exhibitors together as it continues to become a model for other fairs across the country. Events and activities include the Street Fair, book signings, live music, workshops, and readings and discussions with notable authors from both, the U.S., and from around the world.

The Miami Book Fair 2018 invites the book lovers to join the annual celebration, as it remains to uphold the cognizance of reading ability and literary arts in the city’s multi-ethnic community, making it the nation’s undisputable, finest literary festival!

Rock Band Plays an Unexpected Role in Creating Human Rights in Schools.

Rock for Human Rights performing for over 400 students at a middle school in Washington DC

Rock for Human Rights Band Members met with multiple Congressional Offices advocating for human rights education in schools.

Rock for Human Rights Band Members with Youth for Human Rights National Director, Erica Rodgers

Rock and roll music group stops in Washington DC to educate youth as a part of their 30 Cities in 30 Days National tour on how to protect basic human rights.

Rather than focusing on all that is wrong around the world, Rock for Human Rights seeks to uplift and educate its audience through the power of live music and film.”

— Wil Seabrook

WASHINGTON DC, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, October 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rock and roll music group stops in Washington DC to educate youth and Congress as a part of their 30 Cities in 30 Days National tour across the country on how to protect their basic human rights.

Rock for Human Rights (R4HR) is a rock and roll group with a mission: to educate kids about their human rights through music. They are celebrating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights with their “30 Days—30 Rights Tour,” hitting 30 cities in 30 days throughout October 2018. Rather than playing in clubs or concert halls, most of their venues are schools.

“Rather than focusing on all that is wrong around the world, Rock for Human Rights seeks to uplift and educate its audience through the power of live music and film. The ripple effect of an entire generation of young people educated on their fundamental rights can’t be overstated. Knowledge is the first step to understanding and genuine change.” says R4HR founder and lead singer Wil Seabrook.

The concerts were done in collaboration with the Youth for Human Rights National Office. Erica Rodgers, National Director for Youth for Human Rights International said “When former first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt helped draft the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, her intention was to have the document taught in all schools across the country so children would grow up knowing their human rights and respecting the rights of others but that never happened! Instead, kids were left vulnerable to human rights abuses in a world where they don’t know how to defend their own fundamental human rights. We are trying to right that wrong by implementing human rights education into current history and global studies classes.”

In partnership with Youth for Human Rights, Rock for Human Rights uses the power of rock music, social networking, and visual media, specifically the short film The Story of Human Rights and 30 accompanying public service announcements that beautifully illustrate each of the basic rights fundamental to every person.

About Rock for Human Rights:

Rock for Human Rights (R4HR) is a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit dedicated to using engaging videos, live music and lively discussions to inspire and enlighten audiences on their basic human rights. Youth for Human Rights International and R4HR have partnered to bring the kind of uplifting, engaging human rights education that provides students with concrete steps they can personally take to bring civility, respect and open communication back into every community. For more information on Rock for Human Rights, please visit www.rockforhumanrights.org.

About Youth for Human Rights:

Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspire them to become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace. YHRI teaches human rights education both in the classroom and in nontraditional educational settings such a through art series, concerts and other interactive community events. Their most recent campaign has included #KnowYour30 with the deliberate purpose of increasing awareness of the 30 human rights every person has — and how they are a part of everyday life.

The D’Andre D. Lampkin 2018 Social Good Benefit Gala

100 donors, including royalty, and supporters of the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation gathered for the Lampkin Foundation’s annual Social Good Benefit Gala.

When people volunteer, it’s a valuable commodity in our city. When the Lampkin Foundation goes out to volunteer in the community, they go out and do a great job.”

— Paul Leon, Mayor, City of Ontario

ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Friday, September 28, 2018, approximately 100 donors and supporters of the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation gathered for the Lampkin Foundation’s annual Social Good Benefit Gala. The red carpet event took place at the 100 year old historic Beverly Hotel (now Beverly Banquets) located in Ontario, California. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefited the programs and initiatives designed to support education, economic development, climate change research, health and wellness, and healthy alternatives for underserved communities.

The benefit gala featured a world class red carpet networking reception, live performances by the Inland Conservatory for the Performing Arts, city and state officials, and a sit down dinner graciously sponsored by Beverly Banquets.

European Royal, Prince Mario-Max Schaumburg-Lippe hosted the benefit gala. Board Member Marcellus McMillian opened the evening with an invocation and thanked the many supporters and sponsors of the Gala. Personal perspectives on the Foundation were then offered by two recipients of the Lampkin Foundation Social Good Scholarship: Allison Green and Sarina McCabe who is currently attending Emory University. Attendees were also addressed via video message by Dr. Alison Thompson, a D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation supporter, donor partner, and full time global humanitarian volunteer who had partnered with the Foundation during its 2017 Power to Puerto Rico campaign.

Thompson recounted how she first met D’Andre Lampkin in August 2017 following Hurricane Maria making landfall in Puerto Rico. The Lampkin Foundation coordinated the delivery of donations, such as clothing, and purchased 1500 units of solar power to be used in Puerto Rico to light roads and homes in the village areas. Dr. Thompson most fondly told the audience that the Lampkin Foundation has and continues to be about focusing on people, believing in humans, and showing love and compassion to everyone.

The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation’s annual Social Good Benefit Gala raised more than $19,800 for its causes, publications and various programs. This includes $9,500 in sponsorship provided by Beverly Banquets, The O’Steen Group, Galleano Winery, and Care Staffing Professionals.

“When people volunteer, it’s a valuable commodity in our city. Often times, volunteer organizations have a ton of request. When the Lampkin Foundation goes out to volunteer in the community, they go out and do a great job,” said Paul Leon, Mayor, City of Ontario. “Then, they often report to the city positive statements about the things that have been happening without asking the city council for anything. And that motivates us to partner with him. D’Andre Lampkin is like me, and I am like him. He does it the way that I think you need to do it. His organization promotes volunteerism because it’s the right thing to do – not because you are earning anything or gaining anything. And that’s how the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation does it. The city appreciates him very much. The Lampkin Foundation does it right.”

“This was our first benefit. What I was most moved by was the impact statements – the testimonials and stories our supporters, donors, award recipients, and scholars told,” added D’Andre Lampkin, Board Chair, Lampkin Foundation. “We’ve done quite a bit of work this year to promote the building or stronger, more resilient communities. I’ve been working in public service for over 13 years. I started the foundation because what I’ve found throughout my time in public service is that in some communities we rely so heavily on government resources that we never really take the time to start thinking about what we ourselves can do to resolve some of the biggest challenges facing our communities. The power really comes from the people who live in each community and I wanted to start an organization that would really get people thinking about ways they can resolve some of those problems as a community. We do that through our programs and initiatives.”

The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization operating programs throughout California that have a significant impact in a wide range of issue areas, including education, economic development, climate change research, health and wellness, and providing healthy alternatives for under-served communities.

The Lampkin Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) organization in July 2017. Since then the Foundation have provided 5 college scholarships, planted over 250 trees, fed 48 families throughout the region, and provided and coordinated disaster relief for residents on the mainland of the U.S. and in Puerto Rico.

High Performance Computing Market findings released by Mind Commerce

High Performance Computing Market

HPC-as-a-Service will support a Much Wider Range of Industry Verticals and Companies

43% of total the HPC market will be due to HPCaaS by 2023”

— Mind Commerce

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, October 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — High Performance Computing (HPC) refers to high speed computation, which may be provided via a supercomputer or via parallel processing techniques such as leveraging clusters of computers to aggregate computing power. HPC is well-suited for applications that require high performance data computation such as certain financial services, simulations, and various R&D initiatives.

HPC is part of the overall Next Generation Computing market in which the United States is anticipated to lead through at least 2023. Mind Commerce sees the global HPC market reaching $49.3 billion by 2023. Up to 43% of revenue will be directly attributable to the cloud-based business model via HPC-as-a-Service (HPCaaS), which makes High Performance Computing solutions available to a much wider range of industry verticals and companies.

Exascale-level computing will account for less than 2.5% of global HPC market by 2023. The Exascale Computing market is currently driven by demands of a limited number of large corporations and governmental entities that require intensive number crunching for very specific problems. However, exascale-level computing will ultimately become more accessible to smaller businesses via HPCaaS solutions and thereby utilized more extensively.

High Performance Computing Market 2018 – 2023 evaluates the HPC market including companies, solutions, use cases, and applications. Analysis includes HPC by organizational size, software and system type, server type and price band, and industry verticals. The report also assesses the market for integration of various artificial intelligence technologies in HPC. It also evaluates the exascale-level HPC market including analysis by component, hardware type, service type, and industry vertical.

Clearwater's United for Human Rights Center Presents Women’s Rights Forum on November 10th

United for Human Rights of Florida regularly hosts seminars to raise awareness of basic human rights.

Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream."”

— L. Ron Hubbard

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, October 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the quest for universal human rights, women’s rights has taken the forefront. To help educate and put forth possible solutions, the United for Human Rights Center, located at 29 N. Fort Harrison Ave. in Clearwater, will be hosting a Forum on women’s rights on Saturday, November 10 at 2:00 pm. There is no cost to attend.

“Per a 2015 report, women are paid less than men, in most countries earning on average 60 – 75% of men’s wages internationally,” said Sanna Heden, the Manager of the United for Human Rights Center. “This isn’t just in under-developed countries, this is a fact in the United States, where women make an average of 82 cents for every dollar earned by a man – this is per the US Department of Labor. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is supposed to guarantee fair pay and defends the fact that we are all born free and equal. Women tend to devalue themselves and their work, and this is what we are working to solve.”

United for Human Rights of Florida utilizes the Universal Declaration as part of its educational programs and consistently works with some 60 civil and human rights groups. Over the past year, United for Human Rights of Florida has helped educate more than 50,000 people on their human rights in the Clearwater and Tampa areas.

United for Human Rights and its programs are based on principles expressed by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard, who in 1969 observed, "Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream."

The Church of Scientology sponsors this human rights education and public information campaign under the banner of United for Human Rights.

For more information about the seminars, or to book one for your group, please call 727-467-6960.
