Indiegogo Campaign Launches for Copper-Based Everyday Safety Gear

ANGOLA, INDIANA, USA, June 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — An Indiegogo campaign has recently launched to fund the manufacturing of CuShield, a series of copper-based EDS products that protect people from viruses and bacteria. The team behind CuShield is offering Indiegogo exclusive discounts on their products in their efforts to raise $5,000 by July 14.

Douglas McGregor is the inventor of CuShield, a brand of everyday personal protective safety gear that uses copper to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria. With his background in chemical engineering, Douglas knew that copper's antimicrobial properties, if incorporated in the right way, could be used to keep people's hands clean and protected from pathogens found on common surfaces.

This is because copper is able to destroy the majority of virus and bacteria on contact. Copper, unlike other antimicrobial materials, does not require moisture to work and continues to function even as it becomes oxidized or tarnished. As a result, copper has been used to stop the spread of illness for centuries.

The funds raised by the Indiegogo campaign will go toward the production of three different CuShield products: the easy-to-fold handkerchief, the self-retracting stylus, and the inversion pouch. These multi-products are designed to be as convenient to use and store as possible, ensuring that one never has to touch contact surfaces.

CuShield products are also far more environmentally friendly than their alternatives. While hand-washing is one of the most effective ways of preventing the spread of bacteria and viruses, it isn't always a realistic option for people on the go. Frequent use of rubber gloves, wipes, and hand sanitizer appear to be good substitutes, but these disposable options result in tons of waste. CuShield products not only protect the user but others around them, stopping the spread of contagions.

The CuShield stylus, handkerchief, and pouch can be washed by hand or sanitized to maintain their appearance, but regular cleaning isn't necessary. Although the products may naturally develop a patina over time, this doesn't impact their effectiveness. Given the quality of materials used in its manufacturing, CuShield gear can be used for years. This allows their products to be more affordable than having to routinely purchase hand sanitizer and rubber gloves.

There are various tiers for contributors, all with Indiegogo exclusive discounts on CuShield gear. The lowest is $14, which comes with one EDS stylus, with the discounted handkerchief for $17, and the pouch for $27. Those interested in having all three can contribute to the $59 early bird deal.

Involuntary examinations are being initiated on children without parental knowledge. The parent finds out AFTER their child has been Baker Acted.

Earlier this year media on the Baker Acting of children spurred calls for reformation yet the most obvious solution of notifying parents was ignored.

When it comes to the Baker Act, the fundamental right of a parent to help their child is being disregarded.”

— Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The number of children being taken into custody for an involuntary psychiatric examination, called a Baker Act, has been steadily climbing across Florida for the past 17 years. And in February of this year, the trauma suffered during a Baker Act and the resultant harm to children and their families, became the subject of extensive media coverage on local, national and international news. [1,2,3,4]

The increased news coverage may be one reason why, for the last 3 years, bills have come before Florida legislators to protect children from illegal Baker Acting. These bills, meant to clearly define the rights parents have to protect their child from the trauma of a Baker Act. Unfortunately, none of these bills made it through to become law.

Once again multiple bills filed during the 2020 Florida Legislative session attempted to address this situation by requiring parental notification prior to the initiation of a Baker Act. As currently written, the law does allow for a person in crisis to be helped by “willing family members or friends” however, parents are not being brought into the process before a child is taken from school, usually in handcuffs and by law enforcement. Contacting the parents and giving them an opportunity to help their child seems logical yet this common sense approach to reducing the number of unnecessary child Baker Acts is being ignored and left out of legislative solutions. [5]

The Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), believes that while the current law, if executed correctly, would allow for a parent to be brought into the process before a Baker Act, it needs to be amended to specifically state that a parent, legal guardian or caregiver should be notified as a first course of action.

“When it comes to the Baker Act, the fundamental right of a parent to help their child is being disregarded,” stated Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida.

A barrier to this change appears to be the mistaken belief that the existing law already covers parental notification, but this notification is only after a Baker Act is initiated and the child must be taken into custody and transported to a psychiatric ward. In other words, under current law, notification is too late for the parents to take any effective action to help their child.

Under the Baker Act, a person, no matter their age, can be taken into custody for an involuntary psychiatric examination. This includes children and during 2017-2018 there were a staggering 36,078 involuntary psychiatric examinations initiated on children across the state with over 4,000 of these Baker Acts involved children 10 and younger. [6]

According to CCHR Florida, the police body cam recording of one calm, well-mannered 6-year-old child being sent to a psychiatric facility which shocked viewers across the United States and made international news in February is an all too common occurrence. [7]

“The illegal Baker Acting of children in Florida has been going on for decades and
what happened to this little girl is not an isolated incident,” said Diane Stein.

Misconceptions surrounding the Baker Act and uncertainty on what rights a parent has in the care of their child are common place spurring CCHR to launch a campaign to inform families of their rights. Having reached hundreds of thousands with this campaign, CCHR has pledged to continue fighting for an amendment to the Baker Act and for a Parents Bill of Rights to be created in Florida statutes. For more information on the Baker Act, your rights as a parent or to report abuse please call 800-782-2878 or visit www.cchrflorida.org.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Dr. Ezekiel Akande Talks About the Hidden Scapegoat of Opioid Addiction in the U.S.

Dr. Ezekiel Akande

BRENTWOOD, TN, UNITED STATES, June 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As an author, an anesthesiologist, and a long-time pain management physician in Brentwood, Tennessee, Dr. Ezekiel Akande says the national approach to opioid addiction is misguided at best, and literally criminal at worst. “It’s a problem all over the world,” Dr. Akande says, “but it’s a real crisis here in America.

Just like the pandemic happening right now all over the world, opioid addiction is a crisis America can’t seem to get a handle on. According to the American Society of Anesthesiologists*, the National Institute on Drug Abuse reports approximately 100 people a day die from opioid abuse and more than 2 million Americans abuse opioids every single day.

This is a real tragedy and a tragedy that can certainly be avoided, according to Dr. Ezekiel Akande. However, the media likes to focus on the physician doing the prescribing as the primary cause of this national crisis, he says. “I’ve seen too many good doctors used as scapegoats,” he adds.

“We, as physicians, are expected to help our patients relieve their aches and pains,” Dr. Akande says. “That’s what we do. And with opioids being one of the best methods of relieving severe pain, it’s obviously one of the best methods in our arsenal of treatments that help our patients achieve this goal.”

Contrast that scenario with the so-called “pill mills,” where doctors will boldly meet with patients to exchange prescriptions for cash, Dr. Ezekiel Akande says.

These are 2 scenarios that both contribute to the opioid problem in America, he explains, but there’s a huge difference between the two. On one hand, you have a physician who truly cares about their patients’ wellbeing. In the second case, you have outright criminal behavior that needs to be stopped and punished with jail time.

Instead of using available resources and personnel on locating and shutting down the pills mills, Dr. Akande says, the government is coming down on all prescribing physicians.

Some honest physicians are being thrown in jail, Dr. Ezekiel Akande says, which does nothing to solve the opioid problem in America. “This grossly unfair treatment of doctors who are simply trying to help their patients is apparently supposed to serve as a warning sign to other doctors who do the same, Dr. Akande adds. It’s supposed to encourage us to find alternative methods of treating pain for our patients so the addiction scenario never occurs, he explains. “But if there were an alternative method of treating the pain successfully,“ he continues, “we’d already be using it.”

The result is frustrated patients who end up not having their pain resolved, and continued abuse from the pill mills who continue to operate illegally and continue to fuel the problem.

“It’s like saying gun ammunition shops are to blame for murders because they sell bullets to their customers,” Dr. Ezekeiel Akande, says. It just doesn’t make sense when you really think about it.

I know the answer to the opioid epidemic is complicated, Dr. Akande continues. He says the problem is not something that can be remedied in a week or even a month. “There are multiple pieces of a very complex puzzle involved in looking at this crisis – much more than I can explain in a few minutes, he says, “and these factors play upon each other and affect the long-term outcome in different ways,” he adds.

But punishing doctors who are stuck in the middle trying to help their patients isn’t the way to solve the problem, Dr. Ezekiel Akande says. That actually results in patients being left high and dry without any pain relief at all, resulting in the “pill mill” scenario mentioned earlier.

“It’s a long road and a hard battle,” says Dr. Akande, “but I’m determined to fight it for the patients who deserve it.”

Power Yoga Workout series continues at Heart Alchemy Yoga! Featuring yoga flow and vinyasa.

A fun and challenging power yoga class that will get your energy flowing and your body and mind feeling amazing.”

— Michelle Goldstein

NEWPORT BEACH, CA, UNITED STATES, June 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Heart Alchemy Yoga YouTube channel has released a new video to the Power Yoga Workout series, an all-time favorite of America’s yogis, which lately has become the most requested due to/since the quarantine situation where many people are opting for an energetic but home-friendly workout.

Power Yoga owes its popularity to it's incredible benefits it has shown to have, including improvements in general flexibility, balance and physical appearance of its practitioners, plus a better blood circulation, easier breathing, faster metabolism, better posture, and, of course, a calmer state of mind.

This routine, led by renowned yoga teacher Michelle Goldstein, is a specially designed sequence of yoga poses that combines cardio, deep stretching, mindfulness, and meditation; by including high-energy fitness inspired movements, upper and lower back bending, hip stretches, breathing exercises and more, which results, in Michelle’s words: “A fun and challenging yoga flow class that will get your energy flowing and your body and mind feeling amazing.”

Quarantine yoga has been essential for those who want to keep their bodies energized and strong during the lockdown, but also seek a mental escape from this stressful situation. Heart Alchemy, one of the fastest-growing yoga channels on YouTube has now strongly positioned itself as the leader of Quarantine Yoga videos, providing free full power yoga classes designed for at-home practice, with high quality, authentic and spirited vinyasa flows to those millions upon millions of yogis and yoginis that are now staying at home.

What is Power Yoga?

Power Yoga. Even if you never heard of it, odds are it’s affecting the way you think about and practice yoga. Why? Because it’s popular and athletic—the very definition of modern yoga. It’s worth understanding Power Yoga because even though it’s one of the most prolific forms of yoga in the United States, it can be difficult to define and has more names than someone running from the law.

Names of Power Yoga: Power yoga (a.k.a “Power Vinyasa Yoga,” a.k.a. “Power Flow,” a.k.a. “hot Power Yoga,” a.k.a “Baptiste Power Yoga”)

What gets overlooked is Power Yoga never meant to become what it is today. The creators saw it as a “gateway yoga” where you come for the abs but stay for the deeper prospect of yoga.

Ibrahim Hakki: Volunteering During The Pandemic

Ibrahim Hakki

Ibrahim Hakki

LARGO, FL, USA, June 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When it comes to looking for ways to help healthcare workers during the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic, nobody would understand the net positive effects that volunteering could have better than Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki. As a student, Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki has volunteered his time doing everything from surgical assistance to web designing. If you are looking for someone to help your volunteer organization lift-off and provide more benefits to more people, then Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki is your guy.

During this hard time, it can be difficult to find out exactly what you can do to help. "It feels as if you don't have a place to belong or that you really are not contributing anything to fighting what the entire planet is trying to fight." Ibrahim Hakki says. "It forces you to become quite inventive and figure out something else that you can do to help out."

And being inventive is something that is right in Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki's wheelhouse. "I started doing volunteer work for medical organizations back in high school." Ibrahim Hakki explains. "Thankfully I am still in connection with the people that ran those organizations." Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki credits the several hospitals he worked in as well as GAFTA or Global Alliance for Terminating Isis as instilling him with a volunteering ethic. "It was something that was extremely important for me and something that I am proud to say I was involved in very early on." Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki explains. As a volunteer in the Global Alliance for Terminating Isis, Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki worked as a volunteer website designer as well as a public relations expert. "Those were the formative years that, had I not been a part of GAFTA, I would not be the person that I am today." Ibrahim Hakki says.

Ibrahim Hakki talks mask for healthcare workers

As an expert volunteer, it is only natural that the subject of what individuals like Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki would be doing during the pandemic situation. "Well, at the moment I am helping my mom make masks for healthcare workers in lower-income locations that might not have the access that we so desperately need at the moment." Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki says. When asked about his thoughts on the response, Ibrahim Hakki is an optimist.
"It think that, because this country is great and our people are resilient, we will make the breakthroughs that we need to succeed." And it isn't just breakthroughs in medical and surgical mask making that Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki is excited about.

"I have friends that are also now starting to step up and take care of business." Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki explains. He is referring to a group of neighborhood friends that have taken to delivering toilet paper and groceries to older neighbors that might need those services at the current situation. "It is really incredible to see some of my friends that I never thought to volunteer a day in their lives, actually getting out there and helping the community." Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki continues.

This all just goes to show that when there is a problem in the community, with individuals like Ibrahim Jutiar Hakki, the community is quick to fight back.

Amid growing national publicity, Cornbread Hemp rolls out its strongest products yet.

If you're looking for the most THC you can find in a legal hemp-derived CBD product that's made to the standards of USDA organic certification, this is it.”

— Jim Higdon, Cornbread Hemp co-founder

LOUISVILLE, KY, USA, June 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cornbread Hemp just released their strongest CBD products yet. These 1,500 mg CBD oils are USDA certified organic and bottled in Cornbread Hemp's two signature varieties: whole plant and full spectrum distilled. To be legal under federal law, a CBD product must contain not more than 0.3 percent THC. The third-party lab analysis reports these products have a THC content of 0.23 percent, very near the legal limit.

“If you're looking for the most THC you can find in a legal hemp-derived CBD product that's made to the standards of USDA organic certification, this is it,” said Jim Higdon, Cornbread Hemp’s co-founder and chief communications officer. “With consumer skepticism about CBD at an all-time high, USDA organic certification is more important than ever to distinguish quality CBD products from the rest. With these double-strength oils, we can serve the needs of true connoisseurs of hemp-derived cannabinoids.”

With these USDA certified organic CBD oils, Cornbread Hemp has reached a new level of excellence in the CBD industry, having already established itself as the first CBD brand to offer USDA certified organic CBD products from Kentucky.

Cornbread Hemp's whole plant CBD oil is made with organic hemp extract with minimal processing. It has a smooth natural flavor due to the gentle extraction using organic sugarcane ethanol. Customers are more likely to take the whole plant formula in the evening before bedtime because of the high level of THC and full spectrum of minor cannabinoids, derived legally from hemp.

The distilled full spectrum CBD oil is made from the same organic hemp extract, and then further refined to 75 percent purity, which is as pure as it can be while retailing a full spectrum of cannabinoids, including a legal amount of THC. Customers are more likely to take this formula in the daytime because they report the lower THC content makes them less drowsy.

Why double-strength formulas?

“By offering these double-strength oils, we can cater to customers who need the strongest legal cannabinoid product they can find,” Higdon said. “Now, customers don’t have to worry about the safety of their high-strength CBD products because they can get them USDA certified organic from Cornbread Hemp.”

With these new products, Cornbread Hemp now offers six varieties of USDA certified organic CBD oils. They come in whole plant and distilled formulations in three sizes— 375 mg in 0.5-ounce (15 ml) bottles, 750 mg in one-ounce (30 ml) bottles, and now 1,500 mg in one-ounce (30 ml) bottles. The MSRP’s of Cornbread Hemp’s 1,500 mg CBD bottles start at $109.

Why USDA certified organic?

Cornbread Hemp’s USDA certified organic CBD products are made from organic hemp grown outdoors in the Kentucky sunshine. After harvest, the hemp is flower-only extracted using organic sugarcane ethanol, then blended with organic coconut MCT oil to make the best CBD products from Kentucky.

Consumers recognize and trust the USDA organic seal because it guarantees to consumers that products bearing it are free of any contamination such as synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or genetically modified seeds — but that’s not all. For CBD products to be certified organic, a third-party certifier must audit the entire supply chain of every ingredient to ensure the high standards of the USDA’s National Organic Program.
