Heritage Foundation: Grassroots Organization Launched

Heritage Foundation Grassroots Organization Launched

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Heritage Foundation has lead conservative think tanks regarding free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

However, there has been a hole left by grassroots groups, tea party patriots, 9-12 and others, that helped conservatives win elections.

With President Trump in office and Republican controlled Congress, the time for conservative grassroots is needed now more than ever to push through policy.

The National Liberty Federation (NLF) has been successful in utilizing the public policy from Heritage Foundation, Cato Institution and other think tanks, to mobilize grassroots activists. Just last month, NLF reached over 60 million Facebook users on it's Facebook Page and has over 300,000 fans.

The National Liberty Federation believes in American exceptionalism and that America can be great once again by empowering the American people with liberty through grassroots organizing and technology.

Everett Wilkinson, chairman and free enterprise activist, "We are all 'children of God" and should have equal rights and liberty regardless of race, economic class, creed, or gender. Free enterprise and individual liberty are the primary tools that led to America’s success. Our goal is promote the ideas that made America Great from the top think tanks such as the Heritage Foundation to activists who are better able in today's world spread the message of Liberty."

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Declaration of Independence

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28

NLF's mission is to restore the Republic as the Constitution was originally written so that all Americans may once more experience prosperity through (1) the freedoms of limited government and greater inalienable rights, (2) a country that is fiscally responsible to its citizens and, (3) the promotion of free enterprise.

Print circulation of national newspapers can be revived, claims Leslie Norins, veteran publisher



National newspapers print circulation can be revived, say Leslie Norins

The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and USA Today print editions can resurrect their print circulation by better marketing, says Dr. Leslie Norins.

The national newspapers have too quickly abandoned their print editions, which with better marketing can be restored to beat social media, says veteran newsletter publisher Dr. Leslie Norins”

— Dr. Leslie Norins

NAPLES, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Better marketing of the unique advantages of their print format can reverse declining circulation of the print editions of the “Big Three” national newspapers—Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and USA Today–asserts Dr. Leslie Norins, an independent newsletter publisher with 40 years’ experience. He is also a decades-long subscriber to the three newspapers.

His analysis and corrective prescription are presented on the independent website Analizir (www.Analizir.com).
Smartphones and digital media are convenient villains, he says, because blaming them has diverted publishers‘ attention from necessary updating of print edition marketing.

Dr. Norins believes reading the print edition of the Big Three marks a person as “substantial”, whereas a smartphone viewer could be consulting gossip, games, or even porn. “Print is positive, smartphones are iffy,” he says.
He says one unsung advantage of the print edition page is its “glorious” display size, 264 square inches, versus the 13 square inches of his iPhone screen. Thus, print’s big page facilitates “serendipity”, which occurs when the reader’s peripheral vision unexpectedly notes nearby important, profitable articles on other subjects.

He says this can’t happen with one-column phone text, which is also interrupted by photos and ads. And curated and algorithmized news feeds lead phone-dependent readers into ever-narrower knowledge ruts.

Dr. Norins rejects the conventional thinking that boomers and millennials shun the print editions of the Big Three. He counters, “They’ve never really been invited to subscribe!” He predicts, “These groups will respond to marketing”, referencing marketing successes like athleisure, craft booze, even tattoos.

He prescribes ads quoting millennials who benefit from the print edition, plus hiring “influencers” to tout the special advantages of this format.

Dr. Norins also reports he found it difficult to find the Journal and Times on sale in Brooklyn, “in the backyard” of the Manhattan headquarters of the two papers.

Dr. Norins has over 40 years’ publishing experience creating and growing over 80 subscriber-paid newsletters serving medical professionals. He received his AB from Johns Hopkins, his MD from Duke University Medical School, and his PhD from University of Melbourne, where he studied with Sir Macfarlane Burnet, Nobel Laureate.
Analizir is an independent website (www.Analizir.com), a unit of Medvostat, LLC. Dr. Norins is its founder and publisher.

Lightors, “The World Without Disposable Batteries.”

Left over used batteries from a clock. Where to put them? Very Confusing!

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — We all have been put to this kind of situation once in a life time.
Used batteries can seriously harm the environment, so we must separate them in a special bin that only collects batteries.
Batteries are very convenient to use but inconvenient when it comes to throwing them away. Because of this characteristic, among 15 billion annually consumed batteries, 98% of them are thrown away without being recycled and only 2% of them are properly collected.

However, there is a company that caught people’s eyes by developing innovative battery to resolve such battery problems with change of concept.

JNK Science (CEO: Michael Cho) is a venture company that many people are paying attention to. JNK Science developed ‘Lightors Battery’ that conveniently charges with smartphone cables (USB Cables)

Rechargeable batteries have long been existed in the market and they require chargers to charge. However, conventional chargers are unnecessary when charging ‘Lightors Battery’. All it requires is USB cable that every smartphone users possess and this characteristic makes ‘Lightors Battery’ innovative.
When charging ‘Lightors Battery’, users can simply connect charging cable to a female socket for smartphones located on the side.

‘Lightors Battery’ has proven its convenience and innovativeness in KickStarter and Indiegogo by successfully getting funds from people all over the world.
To be more specific, in February 2015, ‘Lightors Battery’ has achieved its crowdfunding goal of 1.5 million dollars just in one day and at the end of the campaign the amount of funds collected was 1000%.
On 28 February 2017, ‘Lightors Battery’ has been launching a new campaign presenting the battery that charges with iPhone cable (Lightening Cable).

Another characteristic of ‘Lightors Battery’ is that it is the only battery which is usable although discharged.
Currently, pre-existing batteries (disposable, rechargeable) need replacement phase when discharged. However, when ‘Lightors Battery’ is all used up, users do not have to go through the replacement phase. Instead, they can just connect charging cables to the female socket and continue to use electronic devices.

When manufacturing disposable batteries, materials such as Ni, Zn, Mn, Li and many other heavy metals are used. However, each year 15 billion (98% of total annual battery consumption) of these heavy metal lumps are thrown away without going through appropriate recycling procedures damaging the environment. In this case, ‘Lightors Battery’ can be the efficient solution. Since ‘Lightors Battery’ can be reused up to 1000 times, we can significantly reduce the number disposable batteries. In other words, we can protect the environment with the small batteries. This eco-friendly idea of ‘Lightors Battery’ has been accepted and awarded with ‘2016 This Year’s Green Product’

Establishment of ‘Lightors Battery’ started from blending two very simple ideas. One is how can we reduce the number of disposable batteries and the other is how can we preserve resources by utilizing general items in homes (in this case cables).
Our goal is to make the world without disposable batteries and to fulfil our goal we are continuously promoting a campaign named ‘Save the Earth’.

Capital Corp Merchant Banking Approves $105M Funding Agreement for Florida Aquaculture Project

capital corp merchant banking, project financing, aquaculture

capital corp merchant banking, project financing, fish farming

The state-of-the-art aquaculture project will produce 13 different, high-quality fish species, with no off-flavor contamination from water or feed product.

Experts forecast US aquaculture industry revenue to reach an estimated $1.4 billion in 2018.”

— Capital Corp Merchant Banking

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The $105 million project involves the construction and completion of fish tanks and hatchery that would allow up to 13 different types of fish to be produced. These premium, high-quality fish products (such as tilapia, stripped bass, and red drum) will be farmed in an environmentally-friendly and economically-efficient way.

Aquaculture’s contribution to the world’s food basket is essential as global demand for fish grows. Aquaculture is a truly sustainable form of fishery, allowing wild fish stock to remain untouched and thus helping depleted wild fish areas to be replenished in a natural way. Most commercial fish species are severely overfished and supplies cannot meet the demands of the world market. Aquaculture can provide consistently stable supplies of finish and shellfish into the marketplace to meet this demand.

The seafood industry is projected to experience price growth as a result of excess demand. Industry experts forecast US aquaculture industry revenue to increase at an annualized rate of 3.0% to 2018, reaching an estimated $1.4 billion.

The method by which this project is to be funded is the brainchild of Mr Gilles Herard. Mr Herard is a seasoned merchant banker and has been in the banking industry for 38 years. As the head of Capital Corp Merchant Banking, Mr Herard has become a leading figure in international middle-market project financing and engineers all funding structures for projects at Capital Corp. Mr Herard has received numerous awards for his work and other contributions including being appointed to the Presidential Business Commission, Honorary Co-Chairman of the Business Advisory Council, nominated as Executive of the Year by the internationally acclaimed National Register’s Who’s Who, and having received the Senatorial Medal of Freedom, among many others.
