Albright Institute At Wellesley College Assembles Experts For Public Dialogue On The Global Refugee Crisis

Submit the press release

WELLESLEY, Mass., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — On Sunday, February 26, the Madeleine Korbel Albright Institute for Global Affairs at Wellesley College will convene two panels of international leaders and experts for a public forum on the global refugee crisis and its many sociopolitical and geopolitical ramifications. Beginning with a keynote from Former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright ’59, the day-long dialogue will feature a variety of perspectives, including international reporters, nonprofit leaders, and academics. The Public Dialogue, “From Exodus to Action: Claiming our Common Humanity in the Refugee Crisis,” aims to tackle the demands of advancing beyond resettlement into rebuilding society.

Some of the many speakers who will attend include George Papandreou, president, Socialist International, and former Greek Prime Minister; Anne C. Richard, Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration; Manal Omar, Associate Vice President, Center for Middle East and Africa, United States Institute for Peace; and ten other renowned professionals.

Former Secretary Albright stated, “We are privileged to welcome 13 esteemed experts who each offer valuable insight on the refugee crisis facing our global community. Now is the time to engage in open discussion on how we as leaders and global citizens alike can join forces to best manage this international crisis. I am delighted that Wellesley College offers us an inclusive environment where we can have these important conversations.”

“History is watching our action (and inaction) as the displaced, the persecuted and those fleeing war and strife seek safety, new lives, new homes,” said Wellesley College President Paula A. Johnson. “We must not forget that women and girls are especially at risk. These same women and girls–as well as the millions fighting for their rights–will be the agents of change we need to create a way forward for everyone. Wellesley College is proud to be part of that movement, and this year’s Albright Institute Public Dialogue is evidence of our commitment.”

As part of its mission, the Albright Institute provides Wellesley students a transformative experience that allows them to apply their liberal arts education toward solving problems in the international arena. The students, known as Albright Fellows, spend three weeks in January learning about global affairs in intensive classes and panel discussions as well as working together in interdisciplinary groups to address pressing current issues.

The event begins at 10:15 a.m. on Feb. 26. Both panels are free and open to the public. For those that cannot attend, these events will be live-streamed on Wellesley’s website, and the Twitter hashtag #AlbrightDialogue will be used for social media posts related to the event, including live tweeting. For full details, see this public schedule.

Madame Tussauds And Legendary Pictures Announce An Epic Kong Experience, Times Square Attraction Receives Huge Delivery From Skull Island

Submit the press release

NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Madame Tussauds have partnered with Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures to bring a larger than life KONG: Skull Island experience to the iconic wax attractions in New York and London, complete with an 18-foot high interactive animatronic head of the mythical monster.

Coinciding with the announcement of Kong’s return, ginormous rumbling crates were spotted at iconic locations in both cities. In New York, a rumbling wooden shipping container caused a sensation among Midtown’s morning commuters spotted being driven around Times Square on a flat-bed truck before making its way to Madame Tussauds on 42nd Street for delivery. 

The all new, multi-sensory environment, including the breathing, blinking and roaring, made-to-scale Kong head, will open March 2017, to celebrate the launch of the soon-to-be classic reboot; KONG: Skull Island.  

Visitors will embark on an adventure deep into the tropics of Skull Island. Once inside, they will be joined by a new figure of Captain James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston) as they journey through the secluded bamboo jungle. Trekking along, avoiding traps of massive spiders and uncovering various artifacts, guests will ultimately come to face the dominating robotic head of Kong himself: watching, snarling, and roaring at those who dare pass.

The enormous animatronic Kong head, made from over 350 square feet of specialist faux hair, took a team of 33 artists 72 days to build. Each movement of the head uses state-of-the-art pneumatic controls, designed specifically for Kong. The system precisely controls the pressure and flow of air to recreate lifelike facial movements, grunts, snorts and roars made by the ferocious beast.

“Creating such a large and lifelike animatronic is a first for Madame Tussauds – the sheer size of this project is staggering,” said Anna Domingo, General Manager of Madame Tussauds New York. “We’re thrilled to be working closely with Legendary Pictures to ensure our animatronic head is made to the exact film-scale, so visitors really will come face-to-face and feel the power and scale of the Kong depicted on the big screen.”

The KONG: Skull Island experience will open to the public exclusively at Madame Tussauds New York and London in March 2017.

Kong: Skull Island will be in theaters from March 10, 2017.

Therapia, the on-demand physiotherapy platform, launches to provide Canadians with physiotherapy in their homes

Submit the press release

The online platform allows patients to book appointments in their homes and workplaces with a therapist of their choosing

TORONTO, ON–(Marketwired – February 21, 2017) – Today Therapia​,​ the online platform for on-demand at-home physiotherapy, announces its launch in the Greater Toronto Area. The platform helps solve the barriers of finding a therapist, getting to and from appointments, and completing physiotherapy treatments after an injury or surgery. Therapia provides patients and caregivers with flexible scheduling, giving users the option to receive treatment in the environments they feel most comfortable — their homes and workplaces.

“Therapia was founded by a team of doctors and physiotherapists who recognized failures in the system that made it difficult for patients to properly heal after an injury or surgery,” said Adam Brown, registered physiotherapist and co-founder of Therapia. “We believe that the future of healthcare is moving away from the hospital and toward the home, and we’re trying to give patients a convenient, efficient, and effective way to complete their course of treatment.”

New patients can book an appointment by going to ​therapia​.life,​ entering their details and location, and selecting from a curated list of physiotherapists with varying specialities. Therapia’s team of physiotherapists are registered and in good standing with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario, and are thoroughly vetted by the Therapia team. Patients pay for their appointments online, often paying less than the cost of a clinic visit, and can rate their physiotherapist from 1 to 5 after their appointment.

The platform was founded by six entrepreneurs with various healthcare and technology backgrounds who came together to solve the largest friction point in the patient’s lifecycle: when they leave the doctor or hospital, and are left to complete their course of treatment. The founders saw firsthand the barriers that exist for patients, including proximity to clinics, reliance on family members or friends to drive to and from appointments, and the cost — both time and money — of getting to and from the clinic.

“We founded Therapia because we continually saw patients who could not complete their recovery for reasons that were beyond their control, but were ultimately failures of the system,” said Jas Chahal, doctor of orthopaedic sports medicine and co-founder of Therapia. “Physiotherapy patients often suffer mobility issues and cannot get to the clinic on their own, so they depend on others to help them to and from appointments. Therapia makes it easier for these patients to complete their course of treatment, and ultimately helps them heal faster and avoid re-injury in the future.”

Therapia’s platform is ideal for anyone recovering from surgery or injury, whether they have muscle or back pain, an athletic injury, joint replacements, or are recovering from strokes or other similar conditions. The platform allows physiotherapists the opportunity to show patients how best to use their own personal space and surroundings to ensure a successful recovery. Right now, Therapia is available in the Greater Toronto Area, with plans to expand to Ottawa and other markets in 2017.

About Therapia

Therapia ​believes the future of healthcare is in the home, and this startup company allows patients to get physiotherapy when and where they want it. Patients can use Therapia to find and connect with physiotherapists, and to book an appointment at their home or work at a time that’s convenient for them. The platform empowers patients and caregivers to choose a physiotherapist that specializes in their area of treatment, and obtain the best level of care in the environments where they can heal and function most naturally — their homes.

Submit the press release

Fake Yelp reviews are affecting businesses across the country. New Jersey Singles Dating Service exposes the truth about Yelp reviews.

New Jersey, February 21, 2017

With the rise of smartphones, finding business reviews online has never been easier than it is today.  In fact, one can easily access a Yelp review on the go.  This could be a blessing for many businesses but a curse, as well.  A great online review can attract many new customers, making business more profitable.  On the other hand, a negative online review can deter hundreds of prospective customers, as it lingers online for weeks, months, and even years.

New Jersey Singles Dating Service is a reputable matchmaking agency with four locations in New Jersey that is currently battling negative Yelp reviews and trying to overcome their lingering effects.  Yelp has caused monetary damages and tarnished the reputation of a plethora of small businesses in the Garden State and all across the nation.  Business owners feel stuck, trapped, and bullied with companies like Yelp who try to force them to pay money in advertising and marketing in order to wipe out the reviews posted online.  New Jersey Singles will not fall prey to these bullying tactics and will stand strong on the fight against fake reviews on Yelp.

Prospective clients who search for New Jersey Singles reviews will come across bogus reviews posted on Yelp that have no merit.  The reviews posted on Yelp have one sole purpose: to destroy the company’s hard-earned reputation that took the owner nearly 30 years of hard work and dedication to establish.

Despite a few poor reviews on Yelp, New Jersey Singles has a solid reputation of success across the Garden State, and if their success was to be measured with one star per happy client, they could fill the whole sky.

Prospective clients interested in hiring the services of New Jersey Singles should overlook the defamatory reviews on Yelp and reserve a complimentary matchmaking consultation to witness firsthand how the well-established company operates nothing like the poor online reviews read.  Serious singles who are ready to experience 100% passion and dedication are encouraged to call 1 (888) 417-0020 to book a free consultation with New Jersey Singles today.
