    Toronto, ON – Chetori has announced the release of its new dating app which is designed specifically to make connections easier within the Persian community all around the globe. The app is currently available for instant download on iTunes.

    “What an outrageous idea! Investing precious time and money in order to create a new dating app to compete in a saturated market dominated by established companies! How could it ever succeed against all odds?” This is what I was thinking when I met the two developers of Chetori App, Parham and Amin.

    “So why would someone even try?” I asked them.

    “Well,” Amin replied, with equal measure of jest and sternness, “As Elon Musk said, running a startup is like chewing glass and staring into the abyss at the same time. From the get-go we knew we won’t make money on this. Our main reason for creating this dating app for the Iranian community was the fact that, as two single professionals, we were both unhappy with the dating scene for our diaspora. Ours is an ever-changing community, with new immigrants always arriving from Iran, and others moving to the US and Europe, and we felt that deeper connections could be made based on more important cultural values rather than just superficial physical criteria.”

    “But would that warrant months of planning, design, coding, implementation, and marketing,” I insisted.

    It turns out that dating apps have helped millions of men and women connect and develop lasting relationships. Many users have vouched for the efficiency of dating apps and their role in their lives when they found their true love. Numerous studies suggest that people who consider using dating apps are more ambitious and far more likely to commit to a relationship than others.

    As the creators describe it, “Chetori is a new dating application with the goal of facilitating connections within the Persian community all over the world. Our goal has been to create a well-designed, pleasant-to-use application, with a cultural focus, while at the same time connecting people with similar interests and personality traits for serious relationships”. As noted on their website, the app was released in March on the Apple Store, while the Android version will be released within the next few months. Android users should stay tuned and check the website for release dates.

    The app’s planning, design, development, and implementation took over a year to complete; the developers had the user’s experience in mind at all times: “We believe that if a product focuses on the user’s experience, it will succeed eventually,” says Parham. The two developers hope that this app will emerge as something that anyone in the Iranian community can enjoy, regardless of age or personal views on relationships, and especially something that is far superior to all existing alternatives in terms of dating apps for the diaspora.

    They have created a solid mobile app that is simple to use, easy to configure, and, above all, intuitive. “We have many features that make this an amazing and fresh experience for all of our users; we have created an app that just works, plain and simple. We stayed away from complex features which make similar apps confusing and difficult to use,” says Parham.

    We recommend that every single Iranian person in the diaspora looking for a serious relationship give this app a try! Spread the word and create genuine connections!

    Poshh is happy to announce that it has expanded its bathroom range and that the latest Vidalux showers are now available. Vidalux has grown from small beginnings to become one of the UK’s most popular manufacturers of hydrotherapy showers and steam showers and has become known for its commitment to continual innovation.

    Over the years, Vidalux has largely concentrated on improving the functionality of the showers it offers, this latest range, however, focuses primarily on the aesthetic aspect. In recognition that there is more to classic, neutral sophistication than just white, all Vidalux showers are now available in a choice of white, black or mirror glass. 

    As Andy Ellis, spokesperson for Poshh commented: “It’s understandable that over recent years, manufacturers have largely stuck to white appliances. Coloured appliances still have very 1980s associations and even if you’re going for a very 1980s vibe now, you may want to change it up in future without going to the expense of updating your appliances when they’re still in complete working order. Even if you’re fully committed to that 1980s look, you may decide that you want or need to sell your home and prospective buyers may not share your taste. White bathroom suites therefore became the option of choice because they have a high degree of future proofing. Like that classic white t shirt, they never go out of style. At the same time, however, there are other options for achieving that timelessly elegant look so it’s good to see Vidalux is now offering all it’s showers in black and mirror glass for customers who want something a bit different, but which still has design longevity.” 


    Video Link: http://www.youtube.com/embed/DbjxnLwsAyk

    It’s also worth remembering that people who buy shower cabins, such as the ones sold by Vidalux, have more options when it comes to creating and updating their bathroom décor. Self-contained shower cabins trap water within their walls, so home owners are spared the expense of tiling and the hassle of maintaining tiles. Instead, they are free to use standard wall coverings such as paint and wallpaper, which are much easier and more affordable to update. 

    Speaking of updates, Vidalux has also made a change to its shower trays, which now come with slatted wood inserts in the shower trays plus a matching stool as standard. Both of these changes improve functionality and safety even further as well as adding a touch of style. 

    As Andrew Ellis said “We’ve seen shower manufacturers offer people a choice between flip-style “cabin seats” and shower stools, but overall we think the public seem to prefer shower stools, so we’re happy that Vidalux are now supplying them as standard with all new showers. Our take on this is that people increasingly want multifunctional furniture and high-quality shower stools fit in with this ethos very nicely, since you can use them for seating outside the shower (or indeed outside the bathroom) or even use them as surfaces, for example when guests come round and you could use an extra side table.” 

    It’s clear that Andrew Ellis is very excited and optimistic about the developments in this area. As he puts it: “For many people their home has become a place to rest and recharge and this is particularly true of their bathroom, which has gone from being a purely functional room to being a private home spa. We’re eager to be a part of this and to give people what they need to create the bathroom, and home, of their dreams, at a price they can afford. This is why we’re very happy to be the premier retailer for Vidalux, who are known for quality, innovation and customer service and hence a natural fit for us.”

    Dallas, TX, USA – Artist and now Author, Penny Altmann has released her new bestseller, Anna’s War. This new release encompasses a complicated, yet beautiful tale of love based in London and Normandy during the Second World War with protagonist Anna going through a labyrinth of challenges and hurdles in her life to be with the one she loves. Anna’s love interest is a young man named Jack. While all seems good on the surface, Jack hides a shocking secret that has the potential to destroy Anna. As the story develops and the complexity of the characters paints a realistic portrait, readers are beckoned to keep the pages turning for more.

    Anna’s War is a tragic yet beautiful love story that goes through many phases and takes on many dark themes with mystifying twists and thrilling turns. Jack has an identical twin named George and while both have different personalities, the pair can contact each other using their telepathic power. The duo switch places as Jack becomes George to work with their father as a doctor in his surgery, while George becomes Jack joining the RAF as a pilot flying over Normandy. As the world around Anna descends into war, an internal war also begins as she tries to reconcile her relationship with who she believes to be George. Jack is tormented being in such closeness to Anna as he watches her beginning to fall in love with an American GI and knowing that as George he just has to stand back and watch it happen, which drives him into even deeper despair. The author weaves a beautiful tale as the characters go through extraordinary amounts of turmoil and deceit, finally to find redemption in the end.

    While Penny Altmann is a professional artist with a large audience, this is her debut as a professional writer. Having written bits and pieces since she was a young child, Altmann has always experienced a unique knack for writing. In this new release, she provides a unique take on literary romance and creates a vibrant and dynamic tale of love that is bound to woo even the pickiest romance aficionado. Currently residing in La Mayenne, France, Altmann has spent many years of her life living in Normandy while raising her children. Living in Normandy was one of her biggest inspirations for the story as she experienced the rich history and culture of the places around her.

    Altmann has also written three children’s books so she can draw illustrations for the books that she plans to also publish one day. Having only written small manuscripts and children’s books in the past, Anna’s War was somewhat of a revelation for Altmann. The story for the book came naturally to Altmann as she spent many arduous days and nights perfecting the story for the world to enjoy.

    Penny Altmann is available for interviews.

    Anna’s War is available on Amazon.com

Transformation from Within will gently guide those struggling through the three stages of Surrender, Discovering, and Healing to help them accept their truth and begin their sacred journey forward to emerge triumphant as who they are meant to be.

    Pedro Power Soler is founder of the International Metaphysics Center, an award-winning, international best-selling author, ordained interfaith minister from a well-established worldwide non-profit organization, the International Metaphysical Ministry. Graduated from the University of Metaphysics at Sedona, Pedro is a Metaphysical counselor, healer, spiritual guide, teacher, and transformational coach.

    It was the death of his grandmother when he was very young that set him on a path of self-discovery. Then in 2010, he found himself driven to his knees by life. What he soon came to realize was that this “worst time” was turning out to be the BEST time of his life for inner growth. Life continued to present him with many challenging adventures. He began questioning his own existence, which later led him to the exploration of the ancient mysteries
    and the depths of the human soul.

    During his young years, Pedro began having spiritual experiences, which in turn fueled his quest to search for a soul-inspired life. This search led to the study of natural science, mysticism, and metaphysics, culminating in the completion of his degree in metaphysical counseling. His education, life experiences, and spiritual work have inspired him to write. Rev. Pedro Power Soler is available for interviews.

    Transformation from Within: A Transformational Journey of Surrender, Discovering, and Healing is available on Amazon.com

    It’s now over ten years since the Credit Crunch first began to bite back in 2007/2008. High Street Banks and institutional lenders were quickly impacted, resulting in severe liquidity restrictions. Despite direct intervention by the Bank of England to reduce interest rates, interbank lending rates remained stubbornly high, a reflection of the banks lack of confidence in each other’s financial security. This in turn lead to a severe reduction in both personal and corporate credit and a rapid downturn in the housing and construction markets.

    Businesses both large and small were suddenly unable to access credit but as mainstream banks concentrated on rebuilding their balance sheets by tightening or simply withdrawing their lending criteria a gap emerged in the market, a gap which a new breed of innovative and pro-active specialist lenders sprung up to plug.

    With interest rates at historically low levels these new lenders evolved as a vehicle for capital holders to see a more attractive return on their money. Third Party funders in the shape of private investors and family offices, hedge funds and in time challenger banks fuelled a rapid growth in the volume of business being written by these new lenders.

    As the property market recovered more and more property investors turned to these specialist lenders as they looked to take advantage of the steady increase in property prices both in London and across the wider UK. Simultaneously, awareness grew that short-term bridging loans could be used for much more than simply acquiring new investment properties. Businesses began to appreciate that bridging loans could be used for a variety of different purposes from settling creditors to injecting capital. Where they had once relied on their High Street Bank, businesses were now able to turn to this new and flexible breed of lenders.

    Recent years have seen this wave of new entrants and their diverse mix of funding sources further enhanced by the emergence of peer-to peer lenders. Offering consumers the opportunity to invest in property transactions with a specified sum of money at much higher rates of return than more conservative investments such as building society or deposit accounts, they have proved very popular.

    In summary then, the last ten years has seen the welcome rise of a wide variety of new specialist lenders. They have stepped in to meet the needs of businesses and investors looking to take advantage of rising property prices. In doing so many have generated excellent returns for their investors and grown the market from just under £500M in 2011 to an estimated £4B (+) today.

    Consequently, the industry now stands strong in the face of huge political and economic uncertainty. The Bridging industry has proved that it can thrive in any macro-economic environment with many lenders having been founded and forged during these turbulent times. Even in declining markets there will always be compelling buying opportunities, opportunities that bridging lenders are adept at servicing.

    Of course, there are concerns. Increased competition within the sector has resulted in growing numbers of lenders writing more risky loans at ever higher LTV levels. A downturn in the market, whether it’s Brexit induced or has its origins elsewhere, could well see some of these new lenders overexposed with lines of credit reduced or even withdrawn. Even allowing for this however many lenders will continue to have access to private money be this from High Net Worth investors or family offices. It is this diversity which will ensure the sector plays a key role in under pinning the housing market and wider economy in the uncertain months ahead.

    Still unsure and need to explore your options? Why not consult an expert?

    At Central Bridging we have built an extremely diverse funding base with a mixture of private and institutional backers. This spread of funding sources will allow us to continue writing loans even if, in the coming months, lenders reliant on purely institutional funding lines or peer to peer investors are forced to withdraw from the market. We offer a range of loan facilities for business use from £100K to £2.5M (more on an exceptional basis) over periods from 3 to 24 months. Our loans are secured on freehold property across England and Wales.

    Crucially you will always speak to a decision maker who will take time to understand you and your situation and unlike some of the bigger banks and lenders will then tailor a solution that best suits your needs.

    Why not give us a call on 03332 400 506 for an informal chat about your options.

    Recently, the new generation of information verification storage systems led by the Aladdin technical team has achieved great progress. It’s used for the research and development of independent chip for open isolated storage protocol. It’s reported that this kind of chip uses physical real stochastic technology to generate private key, and stores user’s data in circuit’s “trusted storage area”, which supports the cold storage of more than 99% of the encrypted digital assets in the current market, and can effectively safekeeping user’s encrypted digital assets. The breakthrough of this technology will effectively solve the problem of user’s loss of encrypted assets, and it is of great significance to further establish of unified identity, for the purpose of speeding up blockchain application landing to provide more secure and convenient technical service support. The project has now been funded by 3 million dollars from Wall Street venture capital agencies.

    Currently, big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, Internet of things, blockchain and so on, are undergoing a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation and sweeping the world. The digital economy is profoundly changing the way people live and produce, and has become a driving force for the growth of the new economy.

    At present, the large-scale application of blockchain technology is not systematically constructed from hardware to software. The understanding and recognition of various applications, foundations and even the blockchain itself are different, resulting in complicated operation of user experience, identity information, asset management. And the loss of assets caused by improper storage and hacking. It greatly limits the development of blockchain technology and the effective integration with the current Internet of Things, cloud computing, and big data. The early “password punk” geeks and MIT scholars, through three years of repeated research, concluded that the problem can be solved perfectly through systematic construction and a set of decentralized general protocols. Aladdin was born.

    The system consists of open identity authentication protocol, open cold storage protocol, and separate physical chip. Let the user’s identity information be verified by multiple parties, and the asset information can be effectively kept.

    Maria Felix, a tiny lady from Mexico, now living close to an oil refinery in Wilmington California, is celebrating her 106th birthday, a milestone achieved by very few individuals. Maria is deaf, but otherwise healthy and does not take any type of medication.

    Some of Maria’s children and grandchildren wanted to improve the air quality in Maria’s bedroom, which, as in all homes in the vicinity of oil refineries or other heavy industries, is saturated with many harmful air-born particles. These air-born particles contribute to several chronic diseases, and may even be the cause of death, especially among the elderly and young children.

    Consequently, MACOMA, an organization dedicated to the improvement of air quality by eliminating harmful particles from the air through photocatalysis, gave Maria her special birthday gift, clean air in her bedroom.

    On Saturday afternoon, the director of MACOMA, Ezekiel Martin, PhD, and Dr. Tony Pereira, a professor at UCLA, delivered the birthday gift to Maria’s home. After activating the formaldehyde hand-held detector that measures the number of harmful air-born particles and opening the curtains of the small window above Maria’s head, Dr. Martin started to apply, the odorless-non-toxic milky-liquid that contains the “miraculous” photocatalytic nanocrystals of titanium dioxide, to the ceiling in Maria’s bedroom. Only 10 minutes into the application and while small rays of sun-light were illuminating the bedroom, the air-quality measuring device started to show that the number of harmful particles in the air was rapidly diminishing.

    After Dr. Martin applied the first coat on the ceiling, Maria’s neighbor, 19-year-old Ricardo, volunteered to apply the final second and third coat. The entire application process lasted about 30 minutes. However, the photocatalytic reactions created by the titanium nanocrystals that are now covering the ceiling of the bedroom will eliminate harmful-air-born particles, plus all bad odors, for many years to come, no re-touching or re-application will ever be needed. If Maria’s family had bought the photocatalytic coating, the cost of the product would have been about $130; a very small price for so many lasting benefits.

    If photocatalytic coatings would be applied on the ceilings and the outside walls of every home in Wilmington; and if the storage cylinders of the refineries would be covered with photocatalytic coatings, Wilmington’s air could compete with the best air-quality places in the world.

    Nussbaum joins Bassmaster Elite 2012 AOY (Angler of the Year) – Major League Fishing Pro Brent Chapman and 2018 KBF (Kayak Bass Fishing) National Champion Dwayne Taff on the KastKing team.

    Dwayne Taff said from Huffman, Texas “Another great addition to the KastKing Team with the signing of Dylan Nussbaum. To win the NWT Championship at any age is huge. It makes me even more proud that I’m part of the KastKing team. With all the great anglers on this team, next season is going to be exciting for sure.

    “…at 20 years old, Dylan’s got a big career ahead of him.”

    KastKing pro bass fishing tournament angler Brent Chapman said from Lake Quivira Kansas, “It’s great to welcome Dylan to the team! Dylan Nussbaum has already started to stack his resume…. and he’s got a long career ahead of him. I can’t wait to work with Dylan and KastKing as we chase all species of fish.”
