The NFL’s Chris Long Kicks-Off „WaterSunday with the Waterboys“ in Philadelphia

Congregations Nationwide Can Join NFL Players to Provide Clean Water – and Living Water – for East Africa

PHILADELPHIA, PA, November 30, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — More than 100 Philadelphia-area faith leaders recently gathered with the NFL’s Chris Long, the Founder of the Waterboys Initiative and a current member of the Philadelphia Eagles defensive line. The capacity crowd was eager to learn about Long’s commitment to bring clean water to East Africa through the Waterboys Initiative, an effort he founded in 2015. Since then, players and fans have helped to fund water projects providing more than 100,000 people with sustainable clean water. Long commented: „People of all faiths are supporting the Waterboys effort and I’m grateful that church leaders are willing to join forces for a cause so aligned to basic human dignity for our brothers and sisters.“

WaterSunday with the Waterboys provides a chance for congregations, communities, families and individuals to unite to raise funds and awareness for the clean water crisis. The date for the inaugural campaign is Sunday, January 28 – the Sunday before Super Bowl Sunday – though congregations and groups can choose an alternate date according to what works best for their community. The invitation to participate is also open to congregations around the country, not just those present for the Philadelphia kick-off. The goal is to fund at least two water projects as part of WaterSunday with the Waterboys.

Supporting the effort is the non-profit, WorldServe International (a benefiting charity of the Waterboys Initiative and the implementing partner for its East African water projects). For many years, WorldServe has facilitated WaterSunday events in numerous congregations. In keeping with tradition, most congregations and groups will host a special WaterSunday with the Waterboys offering, supported by WorldServe and Waterboys through:

VIDEOS: Compelling videos about the clean water crisis – customized with a message from Waterboys Founder, Chris Long
SPECIAL READINGS: Selected readings to faithfully encourage community members to search their hearts with new understanding and generosity
KIDS‘ ENGAGEMENT TOOLS: Simple, youth-centric materials to inform and engage young people in understanding and helping address the clean water crisis
COMMUNITY BUILDING IDEAS: A variety of tools and tips to allow a robust and meaningful WaterSunday with the Waterboys challenge

All resources will be available without charge after completion of a brief online request form at

Founded in 1996, WorldServe’s hallmark is the implementation of large capacity wells with the capacity to sustainably (through solar power and other components) provide clean water for 5000+ people. Reverend Tim Enloe, who facilitates congregations‘ WaterSunday events for WorldServe, shared exciting news about the projects funded through WaterSunday with the Waterboys: „These projects will be strategically placed as part of a new church planting or within a community where an existing church is struggling with persecution or other challenges, in addition to water insecurity. As we provide life-giving water we are allowing the gift of Living Water to flow.“

John Bongiorno, President of WorldServe International, commented: „We are excited to see how much WaterSunday can expand through the power of Waterboys. Chris is such a passionate and humble advocate for clean water and his unselfish commitment to this critical issue – which causes the death of a child every two minutes – is inspiring.“

ABOUT THE WATERBOYS INITIATIVE ( Created by the NFL’s Chris Long, through The Chris Long Foundation, the Waterboys Initiative engages NFL players, teams, and fans with the cause of clean water in sub-Saharan Africa. To date, 29 wells have been funded with more than 100,000 people in Tanzania, East Africa receiving their daily water from a well project funded through the Waterboys Initiative.

ABOUT WORLDSERVE INTERNATIONAL ( A Springfield, Missouri-based non-profit organization, WorldServe International has been working in East Africa since 2001.

FreeCast’s Next Gen TV Platform Allows Broadcasters to Take Immediate Advantage of FCC Deregulation, ATSC 3.0 Vote

Working with broadcasters, FreeCast’s technology will reduce costs of OTA content delivery, while making new niche „Microchannels“ more widely available.

ORLANDO, FL, November 30, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — As broadcasters are looking beyond local studios for content, FreeCast has finished developing a new broadcasting platform that allows for distribution of content beyond the web and on to low-power OTA broadcast television stations. Video can be sourced from studios, field locations, or the web, and the platform allows them to be output directly to both TV station headends and web video feeds across FreeCast’s own branded platforms and social media channels.

„We’re excited to use our technology to enable a Next Gen TV experience. This isn’t the broadcast TV that your grandparents knew anymore. Our platform allows the same programming, the same channels, plus new niche channels to be delivered via Over-the-Air (OTA) broadcasts and digitally via IP, reaching the web and mobile simultaneously. This is a tremendous opportunity for broadcasters to both cut costs and more fully utilize their infrastructure and the airwaves. The end result will be more content of higher quality reaching consumers on more devices.“ FreeCast CEO William Mobley explained.

The media industry has expected growth under the Trump administration, with deregulation being spearheaded by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. Making good on that promise, the FCC has already rolled back the long-standing „Main Studio Rule“ requiring broadcasters to maintain physical studios in the markets in which they transmit. Relaxation of this rule means that broadcasters can save money by centralizing operations, and as they prepare to do so, FreeCast now has the technology ready to serve them.

FreeCast’s platform reimagines the traditional cable and satellite TV infrastructure, making use of low cost distribution, offering varieties of market-driven MicroChannels, and merging OTA with OTT content while growing into new ATSC 3.0 opportunities that are no longer hampered by costly closed systems. With content digitally managed, targeted, and delivered, distributors will be able to quickly and efficiently reach the largest possible audiences by being where consumers are now turning for television: the web and local broadcasts.

American Health Council Welcomes Rebekah Robinson, CRNA, MSN, BSN, to Nursing Board

The American Health Council is proud to welcome Rebekah Robinson, CRNA, MSN, BSN, to its Nursing Board.

NEW YORK, NY, November 30, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — The American Health Council is proud to welcome Rebekah Robinson, CRNA, MSN, BSN to its Nursing Board. She has spent the last four years providing patients with the best quality of care through American Anesthesiology. Ms. Robinson has been in the healthcare industry for sixteen years and she became involved in her profession through her own general interest in the human anatomy and physiology. Her instructors noticed her growing potential, and their guidance became the reason she enrolled herself in the Nursing program. She spent her first four years with her certification, as a Cardiology ICU Registered Nurse.

Both of Ms. Robinson’s parents were immigrants who held extremely high standards for their daughter. Her father, especially, was responsible for instilling a hard work ethic so that he could ensure, not only his daughter’s future but the future of her patients. Ms. Robinson was taught well by her parents, and to this day believes the key to any success is hard work and perseverance.

Ms. Robinson graduated with a 4.0 from Emory University and continued to achieve her Masters at the Raleigh School of Anesthesia. She is an expert in Anesthesia, Outpatient Ambulatory Surgery, and Pediatric Anesthesia. However, her primary focus is providing anesthesia for women’s health care services. As a woman, she finds that she is most passionate about providing accessible health care for women of all socioeconomic backgrounds.

One of her goals is to someday perform mission work involving pediatric anesthesia. Ms. Robinson is very proactive within her community and is a member of many charitable organizations such as St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Mustaches for Kids, The Nature Conservancy, and the Humane Society.

In the next five years, Ms. Robinson will continue to better herself by pursuing her DNP and obtaining a medical degree in Anesthesiology. She believes that healthcare today has lost touch with what is important, which is making sure a patient is receiving the highest quality of care. A large part of Ms. Robinson’s career is making patients comfortable in a foreign and sterile environment. It is gratifying to know that a patient and their family is satisfied with the work and care that is received.

Her life revolves around family, in both her professional and personal surroundings. When she isn’t helping her patients, she spends time at home with her family. She also enjoys running, hiking, and reading which expands her interests in nature and wildlife even more.

Being deployed overseas definitely isn’t easy due to many hardships that may befall soldiers on their tour. That’s why they really appreciate when someone sends them letters and emails on a weekly basis, which can be done via U.S. Military Pen Pals.

The Barn Offers Affordable Rustic Charm Wedding Venue

Perfect Location for Newest Barn Wedding Site

FORT WORTH, TX, November 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — What do you get when you take a picturesque Texas barn, bring it back to life after tornado damage and completely renovate it?

You get the best barn themed wedding venue the DFW Metro area has to offer, that’s what!

„They don’t make them like that anymore!“ That’s what Ron Sturgeon, local entrepreneur and owner of over one-million square feet of small, multi-use industrial properties, thought when he first saw The Barn, a twenty-year old former Percheron horse barn and paddock located in the Alliance Area of North Fort Worth.

„There was this beautiful horse barn, dark exterior wood, quality craftsmanship in the building, everything you expect in a Texas barn, and it was for sale as part of a 32-acre property. The original idea was to tear down the barn and erect a modern business park, but one look at The Barn and I knew we had to save it,“ Sturgeon said. „And not only save it, but make it the premier barn themed wedding venue in Texas.“

Sturgeon is no stranger to innovative, against-the-norm ideas. He recently built the first, and only, Fort Worth business park made entirely out of shipping containers, Box Office Warehouse Suites, so the idea of saving an old barn and making it into an affordable venue was not a radical idea for him at all.

„I kept looking at The Barn and thinking what if I had a daughter . . . where would I want her to be married? Some traditional wedding hall? Some traditional church? Or somewhere that had character, a rustic wedding in one of the few barn venues for weddings in the area? Once I thought about it like that, the answer and our path were pretty simple to envision.“

The Barn offers ample parking space with room for over 200 vehicles. It offers over 4,000 square feet of wedding event venue space, a kitchenette, remodeled interior, and convenient location, north Fort Worth, south of the Alliance area, west of I35 at the Golden Heights exit.

Brand-New Native American Dating Service Sets Out to Match Native American Singles Nationwide is a perfectly secure dating website that provides all singles with a unique chance to chat and bond with Native Americans.

MIAMI, FL, November 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Even though it’s 2017 and we’re living in a rather advanced society, some natives are still being mistreated, harassed, and mocked simply because of their origin and the color of their skin. This is a truly devastating fact and that’s why these people are not able to meet Native American singles and date them the old-fashioned way. Fortunately for them, this matchmaking platform allows them to safely connect with other members of their ethnic group.

According to the United States Census Bureau, there are currently more than 6.6 million of American Indians and Alaska Natives combined. This basically means that there are many Native American singles out there who are having a hard time meeting and dating other Indians. If the projections made by the already mentioned Census Bureau are true, there will be more than 10.2 million of these people in the United States by July 1, 2060. This is why Native American dating sites like this one, are a necessity.

Although 6.6 million people is not a small number, per se, these folks are spread all across the entire country. This makes dating and meeting new people very complicated for them. Luckily, this particular website is nationwide, which means it allows them to contact other natives regardless of their location. Many users say that „Meet Native Americans“ website provides them with a lovely opportunity to talk and chat with other singles without worrying about mockery and bullying. Here, they can discuss their heritage and traditions, and they can truly be themselves. It’s safe to say that this platform and other similar matchmaking sites are the future of native online dating.

Meet Native Americans is available 24/7 all over the country, and it can be found at
