Author Creates Unbelievable Crowdfunding Campaign

Business consultant writes new business book during COVID lockdown
!

Right now, a lot of businesses are unable to run their business as they did in the past.”

— Terri Levine

NORTH WALES, PA, UNITED STATES, August 5, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brand new business book, Conversion Equation, set to provide groundbreaking
 business advice during pandemic times and much-needed funds for a children's charity.

Conversion Equation is a brand business book set to deliver groundbreaking business advice to small business owners struggling to make money during COVID and the otherwise bleak 2020. The book is the brainchild of Dr. Terri Levine, a business consultant, and best selling author who created and wrote the new book after being locked-down as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With its rapidly growing fan-base, Conversion Equation is hoping to shatter the awful business advice given to business owners and the forced smiles that accompany almost every business owner pretending they are not frustrated, struggling, and concerned about their revenues and profits. A crowdfunding campaign is currently underway on the platform Publishizer and Levine has also set an ambitious goal of donating all the money raised from the book to the Terri Levine Foundation for Children with RSD.

“Most business advice given today isn't proven to work and these have been proven to work in over 444 industries and with over 6,000 clients”, Levine said. “It is easy to write a book for-profit and to forget there are sick children who have no quality of life. For those kids and their families, life is very different. They need financial support for treatment not covered by insurance. The Terri Levine Foundation for Children With RSD believes that “while these children have RSD we won't let RSD have them”…and so do I.”

Central to Conversion Equation are proven strategies and tactics backed up with case studies; for example, chiropractors, doctors, accountants, consultants, massage therapists, and more. Every example teaches how to directly apply the information to your business and then shares exactly how another business or several others have implemented the strategy.

“Every business owner knows they have to get a regular conveyor belt of qualified prospects,” says Levine, “But here’s the thing, they aren't having this happen. The real problem is that there’s no one supporting them with proven tactics that they can actually implement. Either they are listening to "fake experts" or not getting any help. This is the time for businesses to learn this proven formula and to find out what has been missing from their marketing”.

The appeal of Conversion Equation lies in simplicity. “Every tool, technique and strategy is easily understood and remembered almost instantly, three elements missing from most business books. Another unexpected benefit of the book lies in its potential to educate. “The eagerness of a business owner to make it through these pandemic times helps to rapidly grow their profits”, says Levine. This is something she stumbled on when helping over 60 businesses during the pandemic. “Within a week of learning the Conversion Equation they were texting me about the strategies they put in place words – and they were using them correctly!” said Levine.

The crowdfunding campaign is set to run until August 28th, and is currently over 30% funded, with almost 100 books already pledged by would-be backers who are getting incredible consulting bonuses from Levine. The challenge now is to build on the initial momentum and secure the support of businesses and corporations.

Levine is well aware of the enormous challenge in seeking funds to help business owners in the current economic climate but remains optimistic. “Right now, a lot of businesses are unable to run their business as they did in the past. I am helping them do that while also helping kids with RSD who are in pain and can't afford treatment and that’s a reality they live with every day. And while there is a lot that we can’t do right now, we should all aim to do what we can. That’s how Conversion Equation got started.”

The Conversion Equation crowdfunding campaign is being hosted on Publishizer, a crowdfunding platform. Funds will be donated to the foundation. Reward levels start at $20 to support the Terri Levine Foundation for Children with RSD.

Dr. David Samadi: Men with gout have increased risk for erectile dysfunction

Gout could be a risk factor for Erectile Dysfunction

Gout could be a risk factor for sexual dysfunction”

— Dr. David Samadi

OLD WESTBURY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 5, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gout, a painful type of inflammatory arthritis affecting more than eight million Americans, is found to increase risk of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. These findings were published in Rheumatology International which assessed the relationship between gout and risk for erectile dysfunction. The meta-analysis reviewed eight studies published from 2010 and later with more than 350,000 study participants included in the research of which 85,067 had gout.

The underlying cause of gout is a buildup of excess uric acid in the body called hyperuricemia. The excess uric acid crystals get deposited in the joint cartilage causing excruciatingly painful symptoms within the joints.

“I’ve always said a man’s penis is a bellwether for men’s health,” exclaimed Dr. David Samadi, Director of Men’s Health and Urologic Oncology at St. Francis Hospital, Roslyn, New York. “Past studies have also found gout to be foretelling of issues with erections. A 2017 study of almost 48,000 men found that men with gout were 31 percent more likely to report ED than men without the condition. Sometimes the ED begins before a man even has symptoms of gout.”

The information found from this new study is that men with gout had an increased risk of ED when compared to the general public. While this new study included a large cross section of participants from England, Taiwan, the United States, and Korea, limitations cited were potential selection or recall bias, lack of information on duration and treatment of gout, and that the difference in risk for ED between acute and chronic gout was not considered.

“Gout is far more common in men than women since have higher levels of estrogen in women helps the kidneys process uric acid,” stated Dr. Samadi. “Gout is caused by the buildup of excess uric acid in blood that affects blood vessels and is also linked to plaque buildup. In order for men to achieve an erection, good blood flow is key. But when plaque buildup in blood vessels hinders blood flow, this creates a problem for the penis to get and maintain an erection.”

Dr. Samadi went on to add, “Men with gout should automatically be assessed for ED. These same men also are at risk for coronary artery disease which should also be evaluated too. It’s important to help these men manage gout, ED, and any heart issues found. A proactive approach is the best way to find therapies that work so men can achieve better sexual functioning and overall health.”

Dr. David Samadi is the Director of Men’s Health and Urologic Oncology at St. Francis Hospital in Long Island. He’s a renowned and highly successful board certified Urologic Oncologist Expert and Robotic Surgeon in New York City, regarded as one of the leading prostate surgeons in the U.S., with a vast expertise in prostate cancer treatment and Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy.

RE/MAX Advantage Plus and We Insure Announce Partnership to Add Insurance Services to Virginia and South Florida Offices

Chad Ingram

We Insure Logo

We’re excited to announce that we’ve brought on a veteran insurance professional to help us grow the insurance side of our business.”

— Chad Ingram

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, USA, August 5, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — RE/MAX Advantage Plus has entered into a partnership with We Insure Inc. that takes RE/MAX Advantage Plus to the next level in customer experience. With the addition of insurance services, RE/MAX Advantage Plus now has a complete array of home buying services, including real estate, mortgage, title and home insurance. RE/MAX Advantage Plus is championing an aggressive growth plan for South Florida and is further strengthening its position as a dominant player by adding insurance to its roster of services. We Insure is an innovative, independent insurance solution that gives agents access to the most markets and full back-end support through a national insurance franchise opportunity.

RE/MAX Advantage Plus has offices in Virginia Beach and South Florida and is on a fast track of growth through acquisition. RE/MAX Advantage Plus owner Chad Ingram started as an independent agency broker in 2009 and joined RE/MAX in 2014. “I realized that it’s tough to operate as an independent in real estate. What brought us to RE/MAX and the decision to include mortgage and title in our offering is similar to what drew us to We Insure,” explains Ingram. “We’re focused on growth and longevity. The brokerage of the future will not be competitive unless we offer our agents and customers a complete one stop shop of services. And insurance is a key component of that going forward. Insurance will help strengthen our growth so we can ride future economic waves with more certainty.”

“The recent economic downturn has been difficult for business,” says Chris Pflueger, Chief Development Officer of We Insure. “By adding competitive insurance services, they can often bring real value to their customers and help define their portfolio consistently and for long term.”

Ingram adds, “We’re excited to announce that we’ve brought on a veteran insurance professional to help us grow the insurance side of our business. This was the same strategy we used for title and mortgage at RE/MAX Advantage Plus with exceptional results.”

The grand opening for new We Insure Platinum office is scheduled for August 5th.

Sponsorship is critical for all events, whether live, virtual, or hybrid. However, it presents a unique opportunity for an even greater ROI at an online level. You should be providing rewarding opportunities to your sponsors to be interested in your event.

The notable functionalities of Evia®Platform 2.2 that deliver more comprehensive sponsorship opportunities apart from the existing list of brandable and clickable banner ads, video ads, sponsor logos, etc. are listed below:

Virtual booths for Sponsors – Like booths at live venues, we offer your sponsors virtual booth spaces within Evia®Platform. We created spaces with the brand identity of your exhibitors and sponsors. These act as booths where your participants can browse through options. They're perfect for promoting your sponsors and helping them drive business.

Video conferencing option to increase sponsor – attendee engagement – Just like at live events, we offer quality networking opportunities so sponsors can meet with potential leads, only using video conferencing instead of booths or a networking area. Having video-enabled virtual meetings is excellent for drumming up business for your sponsors.

Tiered Sponsor Listings to categorize sponsor packages – Tiered sponsorship listing helps to categorize sponsors based on their sponsorship commitment. You can determine levels of exposure and interactive elements for each tier. The higher the level, the better the exposure and interactive options. For smaller events and planners who don’t plan to categorize sponsors in tiers, you can choose to exhibit all your sponsors together at a prime location – the event page.

Moderated chat as a networking tool for sponsors – Your sponsors can use our moderated chat to answer attendee questions on offerings, services, and products, or to discuss insights.

Sponsor videos replicating successful sponsorship sessions at live event – Videos produced by sponsors showcasing a new product/service launch or sharing industry insights can closely replicate a successful sponsorship session at live events. Attendees collect a lot of insights about the sponsor company and can connect with them using our networking tools – moderated chat, Q&A sessions, or a video conference meeting link.

Sponsor Manager Role helps sponsors set up their virtual booth – This role is offered to interested sponsors to set up their virtual booth at the virtual event. In order to save you time, resource and effort, we now have an Evia representative the ‘sponsor manager’ to help you set up for success.

Hilary Laney, CEO of Evia Events, believes that “…at live or in-person events, advertising has a limited time to make an impression. In the virtual space, your sponsorship becomes a permanent part of the event and continues to make impressions long after the event is over.”

BEST Robotics Enhances FREE STEM Programs with Remote Learning and Diverse Access in New Competition Entitled Outbreak

BEST is Making the Robot Work

When University of Texas in Dallas and Texas Instruments Leadership Cheer for BEST Robotics Champions

BEST STEM IT Perfect

PITTSBURGH, PA, UNITED STATES, August 5, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — BEST Robotics Enhances FREE STEM Programs with Remote and Hybrid-Learning
Providing Diverse Access to New Robotics Competition entitled Outbreak

PITTSBURGH, August 5, 2020 – BEST Robotics, a tuition-free program that gets kids interested in science and engineering by teaching them to build their own robots, announces changes to its programs to meet educational challenges during and post Covid-19.

As a national nonprofit delivering free STEM education to schools across the country, BEST Robotics has stayed focused throughout the impact of Covid-19 on making STEM education accessible.

As students adjust to distance and modified classroom experiences, BEST continues to be a partner to students, teams and schools by creating FREE project-based STEM-learning programs.

Adjusting to these changes in educational format, BEST is diversifying into THREE different STEM programs, starting with this year’s robotics competition entitled 2020 Outbreak:

The first STEM program involves BEST Outbreak Hubs which will take place in BEST Hubs across the nation, often in partnership with leading universities and centers of higher education, just as it has for the past 27 years. BEST Outbreak Hubs will follow all local and national CDC guidelines.

The second program is the newly developed BEST Outbreak Classroom, which can take place anywhere the teams can assemble (i.e. schools, classrooms, etc.) for the duration of up to 9 weeks to advance through numerous BEST competition challenges. Teams and students will work with mentors, judges and volunteers through a dedicated system of video conferencing.

The third program is the newly developed BEST Outbreak Online which will be completely virtual, making the competition more accessible to students and teams. BEST felt a virtual option was vital to provide students and teams the opportunity to compete even when COVID restrictions or distance from STEM Hub locations are an issue. The new online program will provide unique challenges to advance as a team and acquire new skills.

Since its establishment, almost 30 years ago, BEST has sustained the vision of two forward-thinking and innovative engineers from Texas Instruments, Ted Mahler and Steve Marum. Thousands of students and volunteers help keep alive this spirit of innovation as BEST Robotics continues to create more engaging challenges and opportunities to learn STEM skills.

Together with its national partners, MathWorks, Texas Instruments, and Toyota USA Foundation, this diversity in STEM programs enables BEST Robotics to empower a multifaceted education system to continue educating our future leaders.

If you have questions about BEST, please contact Mr. Michael Steiner the Executive Director at Michael.Steiner@bestinc.org

Mike Bright, BRI Board President

Dr. Bright's day job is as Professor and Chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Grove City College.

Pillsbury Advises Majority Investor in Acquisition of Largest Single-Phase, Single-Site Wind Farm in the U.S.

CMS Enterprises purchased controlling stake in Aviator Wind project in Texas

This transaction is a great example of collaboration with the Pillsbury team working together with the various stakeholders to achieve a great result for our respective clients.”

— Mona Dajani, Partner, Pillsbury Law

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, August 5, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In its latest high-profile renewable energy transaction, a team of Pillsbury lawyers led by Energy/Infrastructure/Projects partner Mona E. Dajani together with Tax partner Jorge Medina in Los Angeles and Energy/Infrastructure/Projects Partner Michael Reese in New York, represented CMS Enterprises in the purchase of the majority 51 percent stake in Aviator Wind Holdings, LLC, from Ares Management Corp.'s Infrastructure and Power division.

Located in northwest Texas, Aviator Wind, once operational, will be the largest single-phase wind project in the ERCOT area and the largest single-phase, single-site onshore wind project in the United States. It is expected to include 191 wind turbines and a total power output of approximately 525 MW. While construction began last October, it is targeted for operation in August 2020.

Aviator Wind will be operated by CMS Enterprises, a subsidiary of CMS Energy that develops, owns and operates utility-scale renewable energy facilities, including wind and solar. CMS Enterprises now owns and operates 11 independent power plants and more than 1,800 megawatts of generation nationwide.

Two large corporations, McDonald’s Corporation and Facebook, have Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) for the vast majority of the off-take produced by the Aviator wind farm.

"Facebook and McDonald's join a growing roster of CMS Enterprises customers that have access to the full spectrum of energy products and services that we provide under one roof," said Richard Mukhtar, president of CMS Enterprises.

“This transaction is a great example of collaboration with the Pillsbury team working together with the various stakeholders, including the Ares Management Corp.’s Infrastructure and Power division, Kansai Electric Power Co., Inc., Apex Clean Energy and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. teams to achieve a great result for our respective clients,” said Dajani. “We look forward to continuing to represent CMS and our other clients in similar transactions in both domestic and international markets.”

Along with Dajani who was recently named again to A Word About Wind’s prestigious Top 100 Legal Power List 2020, the core multi-disciplinary Pillsbury team together with Medina and Reese included partners Jonathan Whitney, Glenn Richards, Dana Proud Newman, senior counsel Russell DaSilva, counsel Shellka Arora-Cox, Reza Zarghamee, Ted Powers, Josh Morton, Laura Jennings, Drew Navikas, Lee Petro, together with associates Narges Aminolsharei, Meghan Claire Hammond and Alexandra Murphy, attorney Evan Storm, and senior law clerk Danielle Unterschutz.

Pillsbury’s multidisciplinary energy team includes more than 200 lawyers who work across all sectors of the industry. The firm consistently ranks among the top law firms in highly respected league tables.

Pillsbury’s Energy/Infrastructure/Projects team represents clients on the project development, project finance, acquisition and disposition, day-to-day operations and restructurings of complex energy, infrastructure, digital mobility and industrial projects. Possessing wide-ranging legal knowledge across the power industry, from renewables (wind, solar, hydroelectric, biomass, biofuel, geothermal, energy storage) to gas-fired and other thermal, to nuclear generation and transmission to oil and gas, mining and commodities and infrastructure, Pillsbury’s lawyers have worked on every aspect of complex projects in 75 countries across six continents.
