Moonpeel.com Brings an Opportunity to Illuminate Artists Careers

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 17 October 2014

With the launch of Moonpeel.com on September 17th, 2014, (http://www.moonpeel.com) artists, both professional and amateur, will have a new social media outlet to promote their multimedia portfolios of images, videos, audio recordings, events, and courses to fans, recruiters, agents, and other artists worldwide. Simple and intuitive, the website also serves as a multimedia platform where users can have direct access to a variety of art projects from amateur and professional artists belonging to any of the following arts: cinema & television, dance, drawing, fashion, literature, music, painting, photography, radio, scenic arts, and sculpture.

The new website, already available in 3 languages (English, Spanish and French), also allows artists to find new collaborators for projects with the use of advanced search filters, to be discovered and followed by fans. Artists also have the opportunity to be discovered by agents and hired by recruiters in just a few clicks.

It is a known fact that artists have always had a hard time promoting themselves beyond their circles of contacts, and also have difficulties displaying all their work in an efficient and professional manner, says Chris Lerminiaux, co-founder of Moonpeel, and former actor, who himself struggled for many years just like millions of artists worldwide in this industry.

Moonpeel was specifically created to solve this problem, not only for actors, but also for all other kinds of artists (singers, photographers, film directors, models, dancers,) continues Lerminiaux.

The website provides a wide range of tailor-made professional tools and unique features with specific user environments, to include a high end classification system that allows artists and their work to be filed proficiently, a multiple search system to find any media or new collaborators quickly, and an internal messaging system which enables artists to communicate directly with contacts, followers, collaborators, agents and recruiters.

Moonpeel is a growing community. At this moment, artists still need an invitation sponsored by an existing artist member or directly by Moonpeel to get a professional account for free for a period of 12 months. Nevertheless, fans can already sign up directly on the website. Fan accounts are free, although artist, agent, and recruiter accounts will require subscription fees. Payments will be made directly online and different periodical subscriptions will be available.

Mario Marcella Introduces a New Category for Fine Art and Knife Collectors Alike

Spokane, WA (PRWEB) October 17, 2014

Fine art and knife collectors are always on the lookout for pieces that are unique and have the ability to capture peoples attention and grow in value. Mario Marcella has encapsulated the desires of both groups with his knife sculptures. By offering his collection of handmade knives to the public for the first time, Marcella has taken collectors imaginations to new levels.

Using semi-precious and precious stones and minerals, Marcella’s knife sculptures can only be described as stunning. This 72 year old artist elects not to use steel in his knives, instead opting for an array of precious and semi-precious gemstones, exotic woods, minerals, ivory, bone and other natural materials. The result of this transforms what are traditionally considered only weapons, into beautiful works of art.

“I purchased a Mario Marcella knife sculpture the moment I saw them”, said Paul Crandall. “I am not a knife collector but these were magnificent and unusual pieces of art. I had to have one. My wife and I showcase it in our living room”.

Marcella does not mass produce any of his hand crafted knife sculptures; they are all one-of-a-kind fine art pieces. He personally crafts each one through a painstaking process that results in the quality of work that collectors have fallen in love with. Over the past 45 years, Mario has perfected his craft and has often only shown his work through small venues. The general public has never been able to purchase these masterpieces, until now. Marcella has partnered with a marketing company and has recently launched a website selling a limited number of his pieces, http://www.knivesinstone.com. Through this limited release, both fine art and knife collectors can see the genius and talent behind the elements he pairs in his knives.

This new category of fine art knife sculptures is sure to get a lot of attention from collectors of fine art, antiques, rarities, upscale decor and one-of-a-kind items. Marcella believes people on a national level will enjoy seeing his knife sculpture creations for the first time.

Wesley Chapel, FL (PRWEB) October 13, 2014

Dr. Brett Scotch, a board certified Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose and Throat doctor) is the first sinus surgeon to perform a cutting edge, minimally invasive 3D image guided sinus procedure in Pasco County. The landmark surgery took place at the new state-of-the-art Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel.

During this high tech procedure, a small balloon is used to open inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. According to Dr. Scotch the procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and its success rate is very effective at relieving the symptoms commonly suffered by many chronic sinusitis patients. In addition, it allows patients less down time and return to normal activities quicker that traditional sinus surgery.

The 3D image guidance system utilizes built-in electromagnetic (EM) surgical navigation technology. This technology allows for an additional level of precision and safety during the procedure. Balloon sinus dilational therapy has shown statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in patients suffering with chronic sinusitis.

It has been a very rewarding experience to be able to pioneer this technology that will help many more people in the future in our community stated Dr. Scotch.

Nos Caves Vin Launches Full-Service Bulk Wine Storage Location Unlike Any Wine Storage Facility In Greater Houston

Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 09, 2014

The first NCV launched in the Rice Village area of Houston in 2010 and the second location, in Memorial City, in the of Spring 2013. The philosophy behind the Nos Caves Wine concept is that wine collectors in Houston were in need of a space that not only allowed for them to store their collections with state of the art climate and security settings, but they also wanted a place to entertain guests and meet other wine oenophiles. At both the Rice and Memorial City locations, NCV provides their wine collector members a truly unique set of services private lounge, wine events and more along with secure, climate controlled wine storage.

After the successful launch of their first two facilities, Jost Lunstroth, the creator of the NCV concept and CEO of Nos Caves Inc., realized there was a void in the Houston market for full-service bulk storage.

Many experienced wine collectors want and need offsite storage for their wines that need to lay down for many years and they want something nicer than a typical self-storage facility with wine storage, yet they dont want all the social aspects of our other NCV locations. Our Bulk Storage location is for those collectors, stated Lunstroth.

The new location will be built around the model that the wines will be laid down for many years so access to the wines will be by appointment only and NCV staff will be responsible for moving wines in and out of storage.

The location will have prices competitive with wine storage at self-storage locations, while providing NCV level security and climate-control systems. The annual rent will include the acceptance of deliveries, placing the wines into storage and more.

Clients will be able to have their wines transported to or from the facility in a refrigerated truck.

Clients will have the option to store their wines in their own rooms, which can be completely customized. These rooms can even have their own refrigeration equipment for the collector who wants to store their wines at a different temperature than 55 degrees.

There is no other full-service bulk wine storage facility like this in the Greater Houston area and possibility even in all of Texas. Well be there first. said Lunstroth.

Our new location provides the experienced collector off-site storage for their valuable wines with the same level of knowledge and experience that we give to our full service NCV members and home wine cellar clients, said Chuck Jenkins, the wine manager, who has extensive experience in all levels of the wine business in Texas.

We provide Houston area wine collectors the high levels of service that they desire when it comes to transporting and storing their valuable collections. We are wine people who understand wine collectors and we know how to build and operate climate controlled storage specifically for wine. Our goal is to enhance the collecting experience of our customers by providing them the comfort of knowing that their wines are cared for correctly. We also know that having the ability to have your wines delivered directly to our facility and cared for by expert staff is of great value to our clients who dont always have the flexibility to receive their wines personally.

Lunstroth added, This facility for the long term storage of large collections is a part of our goal to become the leader in Texas in the mid-stream section of the wine business. We can design and build custom wine storage in residential and commercial spaces, we provide full service off-site storage at the two NCV locations and now, offer long-term bulk storage at our newest location. We also provide complete wine centric logistics services.

For more information on Nos Caves Vin and how they can meet the your wine collecting needs, contact Jost Lunstroth, Nos Caves Vin, (713) 524-2554, jost(at)ncvwine(dot)com.
