Security Expert Jordan Frankel, Commonly Known as the Security Sensei, Warns the Public of one of Americas Most Underreported Crimes: Home Invasions


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 30, 2014

Jordan Frankel, commonly known as the The Security Sensei, is an internationally renowned security consultant and victims’ rights advocate. Mr. Frankel continues to warn women and families about the rise of one of America’s most underreported crimes: home invasion. Mr. Frankel, the Founder and Executive Vice President of Global Security Experts (GSE), Inc. is pressing law enforcement agencies to start recording the number of home invasions committed each year, so citizens can better protect themselves against this increasingly deadly threat.

Numerous times, many law enforcement and city officials have told me off the record that cities have no desire to advertise violent crimes in their communities, said Frankel. This means that often, violent home invasions are lumped into categories like burglary, which does not communicate the violent nature of many of these incidents.

Unlike burglars, home invaders deliberately target occupied dwellings with the intention of using fear, intimidation and violence to obtain valuables. Home invaders operate in a violent brazen fashion, working quickly to enter and exit your home in a brief time window. Homeowners who refuse to comply with invaders demands can be met with violence upon themselves or their family members. Unfortunately, a kicked-in door is typically the beginning of most home invasion nightmares that may include robbery, kidnapping, rape or worse.

“Sadly, home invasions are on the rise in the United States. Criminals strike indiscriminately in quiet towns, wealthy suburbs, middle class neighborhoods and counties nationwide. The criminals responsible for this terror have no regard for human life; they will murder or maim to steal valuables and other precious items. The severity of these acts demands better cataloguing by law enforcement because this information can enable women and families to guard against this heinous crime,” states Mr. Frankel.

Consider the following frightening statistics:


1 of every 5 homes will experience a break-in or violent home invasion.

78% of break-ins occur forcibly through a locked door.

Enter OnGARD, the patent pending security door lock/brace designed by GSE. Five years in development, the unique two-piece design utilizes both the strength of the floor and the same space age polymer used in US fighter planes. OnGARD’s remarkable strength easily resists blows from kick-ins, shoulder slams and even sledge hammers,” says Mr. Frankel.

Without OnGARD a door frame will likely splinter and separate from a deadbolt during a home invasion. For example: An average sized male using a 5 pound sledgehammer can easily destroy the door frame and/or deadbolt with just a few quick blows, leaving a family vulnerable to a burglar or attacker. Doors protected with the OnGARD door brace can withstand a force up to 1800 lbs PSI.

“An alarm system alone cannot keep your family safe, said Frankel. An alarm system typically sounds only after a break-in has occurred, which means the intruder in most cases has already entered the home. Sadly, criminals can do the ‘unthinkable’ between an alarm sounding and the police arriving on scene. And law enforcement may not respond for as much as 30 minutes!

A typical homeowner can install OnGARD is less than 10 minutes. For only $ 99.00 dollars, this extraordinary device could quite simply save your life. Get one step ahead of the criminals and install OnGARD today.

Titled “How to Sell a Product Online with an Ecommerce Website”, this video tackles often overlooked elements that are vital to a successful online store including obtaining hosting, inventory tracking software and more.

Industries such as entertainment, beauty, apparel, technology and travel have already transitioned into Ecommerce powerhouses and have seen sales boost tremendously from online efforts.

Centenary Alumnus Signs on as Metropolitan Opera Singer


Shreveport, LA (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

This week Gregory Warren 98 began his tenure at North Americas largest opera company, the Metropolitan Opera in New York City.

His contract will allow him to sing in the chorus as well as supporting roles. Warren acknowledges this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

His success, however, did not come without its challenges. Towards the end of his time at Centenary, Warren was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and had to undergo major treatment. Due to his health, Warren was not able to perform his senior recital until after his first year as a graduate student.

Warren graduated from Centenary with a degree in vocal performance and attributes much of his success to the Hurley School of Music program.

One of the most important things of my career was finding the right voice teacher at such a crucial age when beginning college, said Warren. I studied with Dr. Gale Odom for my entire time at Centenary, and she was the one responsible for helping me have one of the most stable foundations in my technique. This allowed me to have continued success throughout my career.

Warren was an active member of the Centenary Choir and also learned operatic skills from former Centenary professor, Dr. Horace English.

I was able to perform all the time throughout my college career, said Warren. This is one of the most important things one could ask for as a student; the chance to simply perform.

After singing for eight years in Europe, Warren has welcomed the change of coming back to the States and is thrilled about the opportunity.

To be able to pursue my passion as a career, and get paid for it, is a dream come true, said Warren. This position is the closest thing to a guaranteed living in the business.

The Metropolitan Opera produces 200 performances each season, with an audience of about 800,000 people and several million who watch performances at the cinema. The Metropolitan Opera Company has an annual budget of $ 327 million and employs 3,400 people.

Flashpoints LED Lights Are the Newest Lighting Collection for Photo and Video Available Exclusively at Adorama


New York, NY (PRWEB) July 24, 2014

Adorama, one of the worlds largest photography, video, imaging and electronics retailers, is now selling a brand new line of Flashpoint LED lights designed for both camera and stand-mounted use. New photography and videography lights from Flashpoint include the SpeedLight Partner and the VariAngle light, as well as a collection of LED lights in both standard and bi-color options. New stand-mounted lights include various models of circular and panel lights. These Flashpoint LED lights are available exclusively in store at Adorama and online.

Camera Mounted LED Lights:

Flashpoint SpeedLight Partner

The new Flashpoint SpeedLight Partner is invaluable when shooting in dark locations or outdoors at night. A lightweight LED that straps to the top of an on-camera speedlight, it ensures that the camera will have enough contrast on the subject to focus and give a boost of light to the speedlight for shooting in extra-dark areas where stands may not be suitable, such as a nightclub or intimate wedding venue. Light enough to go anywhere with enough light output to go everywhere, the SpeedLight Partner provides instant, continuous LED super power when coupled with an HD-DSLR for video capture and can also act as a brilliant modeling light for still photos. Whether in camera or video capture mode, the SpeedLight Partner is ready to go with a wide beam spread of 80 degrees to deliver flicker-free, pleasing illumination at even the closest proximity.

The SpeedLight Partner runs with silent, ventilated cooling for zero interference during audio recording, and its slim battery and lightweight body make its weight unnoticeable in use. Thoughtfully designed for ultimate work efficiency, the SpeedLight Partner also features a Super AF Assist mode for advanced versatility. This mode produces a stronger, brighter beam for approximately eight seconds for absolute focus in even the darkest of situations as well as farther focusing distances. With a long lamp hour life and a standard rechargeable NB2LH battery, the SpeedLight Partner provides trouble-free, economical shooting and takes speedlight work to a whole new level.

The Flashpoint SpeedLight Partner is now available exclusively from Adorama for 39.95 USD.

Flashpoint VariAngle

The Flashpoint VariAngle is an LED panel that attaches to a cameras hot shoe or can be used on a stand to provide videographers and still photographers who use DSLRs and HD camcorders with a focusable beam from a 25-degree spot to a standard 60-degree spread. The VariAngles state-of-the-art LED lights offer consistent color temperature, flicker-free output and no color shift when dimming. When used outdoors, the small, self-contained LED light produces copious fill light to alleviate deep shadows while blending available ambient light to add modeling to subjects. Two interchangeable color correcting panels give the user instantaneous flexibility between 3200K and 5600K to provide lightning-fast solutions for run and gun shooters. Stepless control dials on the rear of the unit control brightness levels to assure flicker-free shooting.

Incredibly lightweight, the VariAngle has a clear digital battery power level indicator and runs off almost any capacity, industry standard Sony-type lithium battery cells or AA batteries. The VariAngle is a powerhouse lighting source, from its abundant light output to its super tough black ABS outer construction, promising unparalleled, focusable and desirable lighting for every need.

The Flashpoint VariAngle is now available exclusively from Adorama for 149.95 USD.

Flashpoint LED On-Camera Lights

Flashpoints new LED on-camera light collection includes both standard and bi-color models with various LED lamp counts. Standard models (daylight) are available in 126, 150, 160 and 300 lamp counts, and bi-color models (daylight and tungsten) come in 144, 198 and 312 lamp counts. All are portable, providing active videographers and still photographers with a soft but brilliant beam throughout a 60-degree spread. Like the SpeedLight Partner and the VariAngle, the on-camera light collection promises accurate color temperatures, flicker-free output and no color shift when dimming. The on-camera LED collection marries strong light power with superb lightweight stature, each model shining at distances beyond 16 feet while remaining easily portable. These LED lights from Flashpoint can be powered by almost any industry-standard Sony- or Panasonic-type lithium battery cell or universally available AA batteries.

Flashpoint LED on-camera lights are now available exclusively from Adorama from 49.95 USD – 134.95 USD.

Stand Mounted LED Lights:

Flashpoint LED Circular Lights

Flashpoint LED circular lights follow the traditional round reflector design with a modern, brilliant LED source. The soft, flattering glow is ideal for lighting subjects with or without the included fitted diffusion cloth, which produces a soft box quality. The circular array creates pleasing illumination and naturally round catch lights, imitating sunlit highlights. While extremely brilliant and efficient, the LED circular light collection keeps subjects comfortable, even when used close up. Color is consistent and flicker-free at 5600K, even when dimming down to 10-percent, and light output from 10- to 100-percent can be remotely controlled for less intrusive presence on set and for convenient adjustment of lights mounted in hard to reach locations. An included AC adapter powers the unit.

Flashpoint LED circular lights are now available exclusively from Adorama from 200.00 USD 950.00 USD.

Flashpoint LED PanelLights

The Flashpoint CL-1300 LED PanelLight packs in power and precision without the heat and maintenance of hot lights, providing 1296 points of soft, directed illumination for a beautiful blend of flattering light. It includes a diffuser and warming color correction panel. Its sibling, the CL-1300B PanelLight is a bi-color option that delivers beautifully blended 5600K Daylight to 3200K Tungsten for precise color balancing and a cool bath of flattering light.

The LED panel light collection was designed with the ability to combine up to a four units into a single array with interlocking ports and series cables. Additional remote control extensions are included with the combination brackets to control the intensity and color balance of each panel simultaneously, and there is an optional remote controller for controlling the units from a convenient distance. Enjoy the freedom of lighting portability with industry standard 7.2-volt V-mount batteries for ultimate satisfaction during field use or rely on a standard 12v AC adapter.

Asheville, North Carolina (PRWEB) July 19, 2014

Vibrant heritage celebrations are a staple of Waynesville NC festivals.

Now, on its 28th year, this festival features 200 groups from 100 different countries that perform and display their work in the towns of Asheville, Waynesville, Franklin, Burnsville, Maggie Valley, and Hendersonville. Twelve cities in total participate in the Folkmoot Festival each year and thousands of attendees unite to learn more about heritage and culture that exist around the globe.

No wonder is it called the Folkmoot Festival! Folkmoot actually means Meeting of People and that is exactly what happens during these events. While there are plenty of Waynesville NC festivals, this one is a showstopper! Check out some of the scheduled events for the 2014 Folkmoot USA International Dance and Music Festival:

However, the miles of natural terrain, chilled waterfalls and crystal clear creeks are not just for show.

Baby Boomers living here spend their days: kayaking, fishing, hunting, skeet-shooting, rafting, skiing, hiking and even hot air-ballooning. For the people who thrive to be outdoors and stay fit, Sunset Falls at Bald Creek has nearby sports amenities at the 54,000 square foot Haywood Regional Health & Fitness Center, the Cataloochee Ski Resort and golf courses in Waynesville. With all the outdoor recreation combined with the thrilling Waynesville NC festivals, it is safe to assume that no one is bored at Sunset Falls at Bald Creek.
