Tinley Park Says It LOUDly and Proudly: „Know the NO“

Ambitious student & parents campaign aims to reduce incidence of underage drinking

TINLEY PARK, IL, November 17, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — „Know the NO“ is the theme of an ambitious year-long campaign aimed at students and parents in the Tinley Park community to reduce the incidence of underage drinking. The campaign, which launched in October, has been created by Leaders Opposed to Underage Drinking (L.O.U.D.), a collaboration of community and educational leaders in these communities south of Chicago. L.O.U.D. is the brainchild of Bremen Youth Services, a social services agency that serves young people and families in the Bremen Township area.

The theme emphasizes that saying „no“ to alcohol is the norm in these communities, not the exception. The campaign is aimed at both students and parents and dispels two myths: first, that most teens use alcohol and second, parents often facilitate it because they acquiesce to their teens‘ claim that „everyone is doing it.“

„Fortunately, the facts don’t bear out that teenage drinking is rampant or that parents allow it to happen,“ said Donald J. Sebek, Executive Director of Bremen Youth Services. „Most teens in our area do not use alcohol; but any underage drinking is a potential problem and we want to make teens more comfortable saying „no“ to alcohol and empower parents to guide their children away from it.“

Last year, Tinley Park high school students participated in the 2016 Illinois Youth Survey conducted by the Center for Prevention Research. The survey found that seven out of ten students say „no“ to alcohol, despite the myth that underage drinking is common. Although uncommon, there are situations where the problem can be exacerbated by parents who believe that, if their teens are going to drink alcohol anyway, they might as well do it in a safer place where there is some control. This leads parents to acquiesce, even letting teens bring alcohol to parties in their home.

L.O.U.D.’s „Know the No“ program is two-pronged, with some activities focused on teens and others focused on parents. Tinley Park High School is the first participating school and the organizers hope to expand the campaign to other schools in the area and beyond in the near future.

Bremen Youth Services and L.O.U.D. have produced a series of communications pieces–display ads, banners, flyers and posters–which introduce the program and communicate key messages throughout the duration of the program. An online newsroom/website is where campaign news and key messaging will be frequently posted. Interested people can subscribe to or „follow“ the newsroom to receive the latest information as soon as it is posted.

Among the key messages the program hopes to communicate, based on results of the Illinois Youth Survey, are:
– Did you know… 7 out of 10 high school teens in your area say NO to alcohol? And if you don’t „NO“, now you KNOW.
– Only 8% of high school teens in your area report that you will be seen as „cool“ if you drink alcohol regularly.

The posters also include some information about adolescent substance and alcohol abuse based on findings of the National Surveys on Drug Use and Health. Discussing the consequences of being „drunk,“ they point out that intoxicated people have a harder time making good decisions, are less aware that their behavior may be inappropriate or risky and are less likely to recognize potential danger in the short term. Over the long term, teen alcohol use can interfere with normal brain development and can increase the chance that the teens will develop an alcohol use disorder later in life.

L.O.U.D. clearly understands that parents have a key role to play in preventing underage drinking and that is why the Know the NO program includes activities geared toward parents. According to program flyers, research shows that parents strongly influence whether or not teens choose to drink alcohol–80% of young people ages 10-18 say their parents are the leading influence on their decision to drink or not drink (source: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)).

An important goal is to dispel the myth that most area parents allow their teens to drink. The Illinois Youth Survey found that 62% of teens who participated in the survey reported that their parents will not provide them with alcohol.

Program communications to parents will include postcard mailers to all parents in the participating schools, internet and print ads, posters and flyers. There also will be in-school parent seminars. The key message is: „Empower Your Child: Thank You for Not Providing.“

Among the tips offered to parents are:
1. Show you disapprove of underage drinking–send a clear and strong message
2. Show you care about your child’s happiness and well-being–the conversation will go much better if you’re working with, not against, your child
3. Show you’re a good source of information about alcohol–you want to establish yourself as a trustworthy source of information, you don’t want your child to learn about alcohol from their friends, the internet or the media
4. Show you’re paying attention and you’ll notice if your child drinks–there are many ways to do this without prying.
5. Build your child’s skills and strategies for avoiding underage drinking–to prepare your child to resist peer pressure, you’ll need to build skills and practice them.

„We see the value in being up front with teens about alcohol use, and discussing it openly,“ said Sebek. „Most teens will listen to grownups‘ warnings about underage drinking, but they also will pay attention to what their peers say. That’s why the „Know the No“ program is about getting correct, no-nonsense information into the hands of the students.“

About L.O.U.D.
L.O.U.D. (Leaders Opposed to Underage Drinking) is dedicated to creating healthy communities and schools that encourage alcohol free youth by implementing evidence-based strategies to fight the contributing factors of underage drinking. Although the two part campaign targets parents and youth separately, its goal is to make both groups aware of the fact underage sobriety is …read more

Submit Your Selfie Film Or Video To New Website By Barbara Becker Holstein Featuring Selfie Films features selfie films and videos by teens and adults to celebrate the new genre of filmmaking

WILMINGTON, NC, November 17, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Selfie films are the newest genre of filmmaking. Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein is a pioneer in this new foray into creativity in which anyone can become a filmmaker. In her opinion, „selfies as film“ is a way to take what millions of kids and adults are doing on a daily basis and turn it into an intimate communication of feelings. Whether that video is then uploaded to a social media site, sent to a friend, sent to a stranger or just serves as a modern-day diary is for the viewer to ponder. Also for the viewer to ponder are ways in which the many powerful psychological subjects brought up in our films induce discussion and thought after viewing the film.

Dr. Holstein is now accepting requests to post selfie films on a website devoted to selfie films, The selfie filmmakers can submit their films for consideration at the site.

The focus of the site is to honor different facets of the Selfie Film phenomenon. It is a place to explore what makes these films so inviting psychologically and emotionally. The site will introduce visitors to a variety of people who are the creators of this new wave of filmmaking. They range in age from 6 to 100, and their films cover a variety of topics. From the depths of our souls to the lightest touch of humor, a new wave of filmmakers are exploring being human, being alive, sharing thoughts and feelings in a new way, and discovering all sorts of stories and plots they wish to tell and share via their smart phones.

Parents, grandparents, grown-ups, teachers, creative artists, humorists, story tellers (i.e. anyone over 13) can submit a video for consideration.

„As a Positive Psychologist, the importance of looking at our lives and the world from a positive perspective leads directly to the impact of the type of films I am producing creates,“ Dr. Holstein stated. „We all, regardless of age or station in life, face many challenges – the angst of the teen world, bullying, teen suicide, the dangers of drugs and violence and last but not least how important it is for women to have their fair share of the film industry, not just for money reasons but to shape our universe more clearly from both the female and male perspectives. These issues can all be addressed through films.“

„These kinds of films can present a balance to all the online harassment occurring today. Last month, during National Bullying Prevention Month, advertising BBDO and Monica Lewinsky put together an online campaign against cyberbullying that promoted the hashtag #clickwithcompassion. A recent piece in the New York Times entitled, „How Do You Stop Bullying? Advertisers Try to Help,“ featured a video in which the responses to bullying were captured on film. This is the kind of thing that can create a powerful response and much greater awareness. Now, with the advent of the Selfie Film concept, anyone can create their own. The value of that cannot be overestimated.“

Holstein’s short films have won numerous awards and accolades. ‚Secrets, A Coming of Age, Selfie Film‘, was nominated for the Alice Guy-Blache Women in Cinema Award at the Golden Door International Film Festival on October 7, 2017.

‚The Truth, A Short Film‘ premiered at the Garden State Film Festival and its song, ‚On The Edge of Something New‘ won the award as the best pop song of 2016. The short two minute film by Dr. Holstein, ‚The Truth, A Short Short Film‘, premiered at FilmOneFest in July. The film was chosen as an Official Selection in the Chain Film Festival held in Manhattan on August 13, 2016. The film was also selected by the Jersey City International Television and Film Festival (JCITFF), and was shown on November 5, 2016 at the Jersey City International Television and Film Festival. ‚The Truth, A Short Film‘ was officially selected for the Golden Door International Film Festival held in September 2016. Recently, it was shown at The Grove Film Festival in Jersey City and on May 21, 2017, the shorter version was shown at The Hang On To Your Shorts Film Festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey. ‚The Truth, A Short Film‘ was an official selection for the virtual Female Filmmakers Film Festival held on the web. There was a public voting of favorite films and ‚The Truth‘ came in 12th of 92 films. ‚The Truth, A Short Film‘ was an Official Selection at the Roselle Park Shorts Film Festival on September 25, 2017.

‚Falling in Love, A Coming of Age, Selfie Film, is detailed in a new ebook: ‚A Selfie Film – Falling In Love‘ by Dr. Holstein. This ebook details many of the issues and stories behind the creation of Dr. Holstein’s „selfie films“, which utilize cutting edge New Media technology. These films are Selfie Films assisted by a professional camera crew, resulting in an intensity and intimacy of performance. The topics and questions for discussion in the book can be used by a group of two, a parent and a child, or a group of hundreds as the universal subjects of growing up and handling tough issues are discussed.

‚Falling in Love‘ was an official selection at the Brightside Tavern Film Festival in Jersey City in early March, nominated for several awards, including ‚Best Experimental Film‘ and ‚Best New Jersey Short‘. It came in second place for ‚Best New Jersey Short‘.

‚Falling in Love‘ was an official selection also at The Hang On To Your Shorts Film Festival in Asbury Park on May 21, 2017. It was nominated for several awards, including Best Experimental Film, and Best Concept Film.

Santa and SkyRunner Bringing Christmas Joy in a Brand New Sleigh

Now Families Can Win A Cool Christmas Adventure And Benefit Children Around The Country As Well.

SHREVEPORT, LA, November 17, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Following up on being chosen for the cover of the prestigious Hammacher Schlemmer Christmas catalog, SkyRunner, the maker of the world’s first PowerSport Aircraft is partnering with Santa to create a new way to bring Christmas joy. While Santa remains loyal to his reindeer, he has also realized that his sleigh needs updating, and so he is choosing the SkyRunner Mk3, the world’s first PowerSport Aircraft since Santa’s first sleigh as his new ride for 2017.

In an exclusive interview, Santa noted that even Rudolph can’t get to very difficult locations, and since SkyRunner can do 70 MPH off-road, and flies over 40 MPH at heights up to 10,000 feet, it is the perfect new alternative for his very important trips.

Consistent with Santa’s gift-giving model, SkyRunner is announcing a sweepstakes in which families can win a free day with SkyRunner where they can experience the gift of flight and off-road adventure. To launch the Sweepstakes, SkyRunner is sending 18-wheelers across the country with unique pictures of Santa and Mrs. Claus in their new ride. Each truck has messaging appropriate for the iconic settings Santa is traveling to, and information on entering the Sweepstakes.

SkyRunner is partnering with, a Social Referral Marketing Platform, to run the Sweepstakes. Anyone can text the word SkyRunner to the number 555888 or scan the QR code below and follow the steps to enter to win a full day of flying! Grabbr facilitates people sharing about SkyRunner with their friends in exchange for entering to win a day of SkyRunner for themselves and their friends and family!

Stewart Hamel, the developer of SkyRunner, commented that „Whenever people see SkyRunner, they immediately ask if they can fly in it so we thought it would make a great Christmas present for a family and their friends to have a whole day of adventure.“ He added that „In the spirit of the season, a portion of all SkyRunner sales through New Year’s Eve will be used to buy gifts for children affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, as an additional way of spreading Christmas joy.“

Developed and refined over years of testing, with input from some of the leading authorities in the world, SkyRunner makes flying easier, safer, and more affordable than ever, and combines the practical benefit of owning a world-class ATV with a very economical and safe way to fly.

SkyRunner is FAA approved as a Light Sport Aircraft. Since SkyRunner can carry two passengers and more than 580 pounds of usable weight in flight which is the heaviest approved takeoff weight of any LSA, Santa has plenty of ability to carry lots of gifts around the world.

Michael Rybarski, Managing Partner at LifeChange Ventures and a Senior Advisor to SkyRunner, stated: „We’re making entering the Sweepstakes as easy and fun as it is to learn to fly SkyRunner. We encourage people to look for the trucks throughout the country. We’ve equipped each truck with unique GRABBR beacons that will send information on entering the sweepstakes to Android users near the trucks. In addition, anyone can enter at any time by simply going to SkyRunner’s Facebook page or website at“

Each truck is also equipped with GPS trackers, so fans can follow Santa and SkyRunner around the country in real time. Rybarski continued, „We can let people know when the trucks are coming into their areas, and who knows, Santa and SkyRunner may be showing up in New York or Chicago around the time of their Christmas parade!“

Mr. Hamel commented further: „We were honored to be selected for the Hammacher Christmas catalog and look to give back with this promotion that allows children to receive gifts, but also to give a very special gift to one lucky family and their friends.“

SkyRunner is a privately-owned company with its production facilities located in Shreveport, LA. It is committed to the highest quality, and safety in the products it builds– making the dream of flight both real and practical for businesses, individuals, and enthusiasts.

The American Health Council Education Board Welcomes Carol Delville PhD, RN, ACNS-BC

Carol Delville PhD, RN, ACNS-BC will be bringing her commitment to rigorous healthcare education to the American Health Council’s Education Board.

NEW YORK, NY, November 16, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Carol Delville PhD, RN, ACNS-BC will be bringing her commitment to rigorous healthcare education to the American Health Council’s Education Board. With a variety of diverse positions and a remarkable 37 years in the healthcare industry, Dr. Delville has refined her clinical intuition and teaching capacities to near-perfection. The American Health Council is eager to add seasoned Clinical Professor Dr. Delville to its extended network of healthcare professionals.

As the eldest of five children, Dr. Delville’s interest in clinical care developed at a young age. Her interest in nursing dates back to age three when she received a Christmas present from her parents. This gift, a nursing cart filled with supplies and a dolls bed, was her first „skills“ lab experience. Searching for a way to translate her interest into a profession, Dr. Delville pursued a career in nursing. She entered Albany Medical Center School of Nursing in Albany, New York and graduated in 1980 with a Diploma in Nursing. Soon after, Dr. Delville began critical care nursing in Kingston City Hospital followed by three years at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. After moving to Boston, Massachusetts in 1986, she work in the Veteran’s Administration as a critical care and research nurse, and subsequently met her husband Yvon Delville, then a doctoral candidate in Neuroscience and Behavior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. In 1999 the family moved to Austin, Texas, where her husband became a Professor in the Department of Psychology at The University of Texas at Austin.

Throughout her upbringing, Dr. Delville’s parents instilled the importance of education. This appreciation gave her the motivation to pursue a terminal degree and become a recognized authority in her field. Dr. Delville enrolled in the RN-BSN program at The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing, graduated in 2001, and was accepted in the Graduated School at The University of Texas at Austin, upon which she earned her Master of Science Degree in Adult Health Nursing in 2003 and her PhD in 2008. Dr. Delville is a Board-Certified Adult Health Clinical Nurse Specialist (ACNS-BC).

After mastering advanced clinical practice, Dr. Delville transitioned to a teaching position where she could share the substantial clinical experience and wisdom she gained throughout her career as a practicing nurse. She has occupied her present position as Assistant Professor of Clinical Nursing at the University of Texas at Austin for nine of her total 37 years in the healthcare industry. In this capacity, Dr. Delville oversees the clinical placement of nursing students and teaches as clinical faculty in the the advanced practice programs.

Dr. Delville demonstrates initiative in all aspects of her nursing career. In addition to her professorship, she also has an active collaborative practice in the long-term care setting. The site provides opportunities for students to work with residents with multiple chronic medical conditions and develop projects to improve the quality of their care. Her active education style engages students with case studies and encourages advanced practice nursing students to develop critical diagnostic clinical reasoning skills through class discussions and inter-professional projects.

An active contributor to medical research, Dr. Delville has continued to focus on adult-gerontology in her teaching and research at The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing since her graduation. She has conducted dynamic prior research covering various topics in adult-gerontology. Her research has examined inter-professional education and how technology can improve communication between team-members, geriatric health and strategies to manage multiple chronic medical conditions, and the use of community service learning to develop the quality improvement skills for Clinical Nurse Specialist students. The American Health Council applauds Dr. Delville for her academic contributions to a section of the nursing field that will drastically benefit from improvement. In her professional future, she hopes to transition into an associate teaching position and contribute to a linkage of programs at the University of Texas at Austin.

Dr. Delville’s outstanding academic capabilities and passion for her profession have been honored and acknowledged many times throughout her illustrious career. As a student, Dr. Delville was supported in her doctoral studies through a John A. Hartford Scholar: Building Academic Excellence in Nursing award. She is a University of Texas at Austin Senior Provost Teaching Fellow, University of Texas at Austin Center for Excellence in LTC: Education Director, and National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialist: Co-Chair of the 2018 National Conference. Dr. Delville brings this professional authority to her continued service to her profession. Presently, Dr. Delville proudly serves as a journal reviewer for Journal of Professional Nursing, Research in Gerontological Nursing, Applied Nursing Research, and Journal of Cardiac Failure. In this capacity, she examines cutting-edge nursing advancements and research, shaping the future of her professional field.

Softseed Launches ‚Good Calendar‘ IOS Version Hit 0.3 Million Downloads of Android Version!

Highlight for a new concept calendar application with drag and drop

ANYANG, KOREA, November 16, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Noteworthy start-up ‚Softseed‘ has released ‚Good calendar‘ IOS version this month. The existing Android version proved to be popular with many users by recording 300,000 cumulative downloads within two years of its launch.

The core technology of ‚Good Calendar‘ is ‚Drag & Drop‘ user environment. Drag & Drop UX of ‚Good Calendar‘ for simple schedule entry was patented in 2014 under the name ‚Schedule Generation Cellphone and Schedule Generation Method‘ and registered in Korea last October. It is currently filed in the U.S.A. and awaiting examination. Everyone can easily manage their schedules with Drag & Drop, which is considered to be a breakthrough.

Good calendar is not only domestically but also overseas. Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, the U.S.A., Germany, France, and other countries‘ users take about half of the whole users. There are many countries and users who use ‚lunar calendar‘, ‚Good Calendar‘ IOS version launched this time has just the same ‚Lunar Repeat‘ function as Android version.

Moreover, some functions just for ‚IOS version‘ are added by receiving users‘ feedback, unlike the Android version. One of the functions is the display option setting, which allows you to change the font for date of the calendar when changing the font size. Other new additional option is also added based on users‘ feedback which users are not familiar with setting time when adding new entry. This new option allows users to set the existing usual time setting design.

In addition to improving accessibility by using 3D touch, which is only available in IOS, for users who are not comfortable with ‚Drag & Drop UX‘, ‚IOS version‘ provides most of the functions as video tutorials in the menu. This will be also applied to ‚Android version‘ in the very close future.

„We are not satisfied with the current status and we are constantly preparing for the update in consideration of the users‘ environment,“ said Lee, Seung-Mi, and „We are actively promoting memo functions and upgrading backup functions currently.“ She also said „Since this app has so many different functions, we are considering some of the features to be released as a simple app separately.“
