Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a new re-mastered four-disc deluxe expanded boxed set limited edition (comprising 3 CDs and a DVD) of AXE VICTIM the legendary 1974 debut album by BE BOP DELUXE.

Recorded in the Spring of 1974 at several studios in London, AXE VICTIM was released by EMI’s Harvest label in June 1974 to much critical praise and introduced Be Bop Deluxe to the record buying public. The album featured the band’s first line-up of BILL NELSON (vocals, lead guitar, acoustic guitar, piano), IAN PARKIN (rhythm & acoustic guitars, organ), ROB BRYAN (bass guitar, vocals) and NICHOLAS CHATTERTON-DEW (drums).

AXE VICTIM was a fine debut and was championed by DJ John Peel (who had been an advocate of Bill Nelson’s work since the release of the rudimentary self-released album “Northern Dream” in 1971) as one of his favourite releases of 1974. Although Bill Nelson was still finding his creative feet, AXE VICTIM featured some fine material including the classic ‘Adventures in a Yorkshire Landscape’, along with other fine material such as ‘Night Creatures’, ‘Third Floor Heaven’ (which featured Babe Ruth vocalist Jenny Haan guesting), ‘Jets at Dawn’ and the superb ‘Darkness (L’Immoraliste)’.

This expanded reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an additional 41 bonus tracks drawn from stunning new 5.1 surround sound & stereo mixes of the album from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler, along with two complete BBC Radio One sessions from November 1973 and May 1974 (including the previously unreleased “lost” John Peel session from November 1973), both sides of the rare Smile Records single ‘Teenage Archangel’ b/w ‘Jets at Dawn’ released by the band in 1973 prior to being signed to EMI. Also included is the complete previously unreleased Be Bop Deluxe audition session for Decca Records from December 1973 (mixed from the original 16 track tapes by Stephen W Tayler) & previously unreleased out-takes from the original album sessions.

Another highlight of this limited-edition boxed set is the lavishly illustrated 68-page book with many previously unseen photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. Additionally, the set includes a facsimile Record Store poster and postcards. This special deluxe limited edition boxed set of AXE VICTIM is a fitting celebration of a wonderful debut album and a tribute to the creative vision of Bill Nelson.

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.

New Vinyasa Yoga / Power Yoga Workout Video for Quarantine Yoga Practice

— Michelle Goldstein

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Heart Alchemy announces a brand new Vinyasa Yoga / Power Yoga video led by it's founder, Michelle Goldstein. As a continuation of their Vinyasa Yoga flow series, the YouTube channel will soon release this 47 minute yoga class, perfect for quarantine yoga at home.

This video includes the traditional poses and sequences of Vinyasa Yoga, also known as 'Flow Yoga', combined with deep breathing techniques (pranayama) such as Ujjayi breath, specially designed to achieve a full body relaxation.

The type of experience that is had with the Vinyasa Yoga practices is known as the flow experience. The 'state of Flow' is characterized by total absorption in the activity, while maintaining deep single pointed focus and concentration. A union of consciousness and action is how it's described by regular practitioners. It happens when the capacities and abilities we have are in balance with the challenges presented by the activity we are doing.

This experience of fluidity can be more accessible through the practices of Yoga Vinyasa. This style gather several qualities that make possible to enter in an intense concentration, through physical activity, body movement, breathing and creativity.

The breath has a vital role in this disciplined Power Yoga Workout. This dance of movement with the breath, combined with the sequences and progression of postures that are performed in Vinyasa Flow, offers many possibilities for creativity. "Vinyasa Flow Yoga is known as a breath-synchronized practice due to each posture is connected to the next one using the breath", says Michelle Goldstein, Co-Founder of Heart Alchemy Yoga.

What is Vinyasa Yoga?

The term Vinyasa is derived from "nyasa", meaning “to place,” and "vi", meaning “in a special way.” This indicates that we are bringing consciousness to each movement in each moment. Vinyasa yoga pairs the breath with smooth transitions from one pose to another and it’s a faster-paced class that can be vigorous, athletic and dynamic.

Vinyasa Flow is a practice to connect internally and also a very enriching experience when we develop and share it in our collective yoga sessions. This style of yoga facilitates calorie-burning and is known for improving flexibility, muscular strength, cardiovascular health and mental focus.

Names of Vinyasa Yoga: Vinyasa yoga (a.k.a “Ashtanga Yoga,” a.k.a. “Vinyasa Flow,” a.k.a. “Flow Yoga”.)

“Revenge Prank” Actor Embraces the Era of Getting Even

NEW YORK, NY, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Under the setting sun just outside the Holland Tunnel in lower Manhattan, actor Damian Muziani is not lost on the irony; The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has made traffic nearly non-existent at times in the Big Apple, but ten stories up, his blue tuxedo-clad image graces a sixty foot-wide billboard ad, teasing rush-hour commuters about their bumper-to-bumper apartment space for a self-storage facility. "Dichotomy is dominating the year 2020 in so many ways," says the busy performer and broadcaster. "It seems like nobody is in the mood to laugh, and yet these pranks are so much fun to watch!"

The pranks in question form a brand new reality show entitled Revenge Prank with DJ Pauly D and Vinny, a 30 minute put-on that takes elements of past hits like Punked and What Would You Do and adds a vital twist: It's payback time for pranksters who went too far in the past and their one-time victims are now doling out the punishment. Muziani is a recurring talent on the show, playing dual roles, beginning this Thursday Night at 9:30 EDT. His challenge is not only to deliver a believable character, but to improvise his way out of a jam if things go off the rails (spoiler alert: they do). "To best enjoy watching this TV show you should imagine it like you're going to see a Broadway play, and one of the lead actors on stage was never given a copy of the script beforehand but everyone else is off-book. Eventually, chaos ensues."

It turns out the format is a perfect fit for Muziani. “I’ve always been a class clown and improv artist and using these skills to hone an acting performance in a slapdash environment is awesome. You have only a day or two to prepare alongside a small cast and crew and then you’ve got exactly one chance to pull it off. If you screw up and break character or fail to keep the victim guessing, then you’ve just wasted a fortune in production time and dollars. And of course, there's an element of real danger involved as well." Muziani plays an angry Russian gangster in the prank, so perhaps the possibility of danger goes with the territory.

The show's new wrinkle to a popular theme has struck gold with viewers right off the bat. The premiere episode of Revenge Prank pulled a .22 rating among adults 18-49, making it the third-most watched non-news cable show in America on Thursday Night.

Every week, hosts (and Jersey Shore alums) Pauly Delvecchio and Vinny Guadagnino team up with one victim each to compete for bragging rights over who pulled off the best prank. Wild N’ Out co-host Justina Valentine is also on hand in several episodes to help dish out the vengeance.

Elsewhere, Muziani has also been charting the recent meteoric rise of writer-comedienne Sarah Cooper, made super-famous nearly overnight as the star of TikTok videos lip-synced to Donald Trump's actual voice in which she performs and edits. Cooper and Muziani co-starred in a successful string of commercials for a banking institution several years ago. "I'm so happy for Sarah," said Muziani, "I've been a huge fan of hers since 9 years ago when we were clowning around in TV commercials together, and it's so reassuring to see very hard work in this business finally paying off."

Later this summer, things heat up even more for Muziani. He will appear as a co-star in a TV pilot entitled Squid Ink which has been accepted into the Portland Comedy Film and Pilot Light TV festivals, and in August will be co-starring in a short two-hander opposite Ebony Obsidian (Sistas, If Beale Street Could Talk) in Such a Deal, directed by Dionna McMillian.

Doctors Predict Surge of Workplace Health Problems

Doctors are becoming increasingly concerned about facing a cascade of workplace health problems during the fallout from COVID-19.

As a society, we just don’t have the resources to face the coming crisis in occupational health”

— Dr. Wendy Snell MBBS DCH FPC DRCOG Dip OH MSc OH

WOLVERHAMPTON, WEST MIDLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Doctors are becoming increasingly concerned about facing a cascade of health problems during the fallout from COVID-19, with some predicting serious consequences for employers as well as employees.

Whilst many of us develop a degree of structure around remote working, or return to work with social distancing in place, many employers don’t realise that the burden of managing health problems amongst their employees sits firmly on their desks.

“As a society, we just don’t have the resources to face the coming crisis in occupational health” says Dr. Wendy Snell MBBS DCH FPC DRCOG Dip OH MSc OH, an occupational health specialist practising in London.

“There are already more occupational health jobs than doctors or nurses available to fill them and demand for the specialism is rocketing, which means employers will be waiting to get advice as waiting lists grow” she said.

Dr. Snell continued that "whilst waiting lists are commonly associated with NHS care, employers across the UK are about to find the same problem if they need to get professional advice about how to manage an employee’s health problem".

With laws like the Equality Act 2010 setting down that employers must make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to an employee’s role or environment before considering if an employee can be dismissed on health grounds, demand for occupational health advice has been steadily increasing for years, long before the arrival of COVID-19.

“We’ve seen huge increases in enquiries in recent weeks” says Magnus Kauders, Managing Director of Occupational Health Assessment Limited, an occupational health provider based in Wolverhampton.

“Requests for help from employers usually follow very predictable seasonal peaks, yet the last month has been ridiculous. We’ve seen a 100% increase in demand in the last two weeks alone” he said.

Other specialists across the country have also expressed concern about the long-term impact of the lockdown on employee’s health, particularly psychological and mental health. Geoff Heyes, Head of Health Policy and Influencing at the mental health charity Mind, has called for proactive detection of problems among COVID-19 survivors, but is concerned NHS mental health services may be already too overstretched.

“Going into this pandemic, only one in three people who needed help for their mental health were actually getting any support. Coming out we are going to see even higher demand.”

Continuing the theme, Drinkaware CEO Elaine Hindal issues a stark warning from the Alcohol Health Alliance. “What’s worrying is that lockdown and continued isolation could result in concerning drinking patterns going unnoticed until it’s too late. Employers must use every opportunity to plan for a return to work that prioritises employee health and wellbeing.”

Employer’s groups are also becoming increasingly concerned. The Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development say “Employee health, safety and well-being during this time is paramount. Employers need to be proactive in protecting their people and minimising the risk to staff and business continuity.” The Society of Occupational Medicine has also called for swift action to provide universal access to occupational health across the UK, stressing that only half of the UK’s population have access to workplace health support.

“We’re used to employers suddenly finding they have a health issue to consider when they embark on a redundancy programme” said Mr. Kauders “although the numbers taking those steps now are pushing a wave of problems straight into occupational health to sort out” he continued “it’s really difficult for everyone involved”.

Tangible IP Announces the Sale of 20 Interactive Music & AR/VR Patents

Tangible IP Announces the Sale of 20 Interactive Music & AR/VR Patents

SEATTLE, WA, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tangible IP, LLC, an international patent brokerage and Intellectual Property advisory firm headquartered in Seattle, with over 3500 patents successfully brokered, announced that it successfully completed the sale of a 20 asset patent portfolio pertaining to interactive music, also containing augmented and virtual reality patents, which was developed over the last two decades by US-based operating company Beamz Interactive, Inc. Beamz is the leading developer of interactive music technology, software applications, and intellectual property for a broad range of music, virtual music, gaming, education, healthcare and consumer markets and applications. The identity of the acquirer nor financial details of the agreement could be disclosed. The portfolio is widely relevant to several industry members across several product lines such as interactive music games, MIDI controllers and other high end music equipment, and will remain available for licensees who want to take advantage of the new acquirer’s licensing program.

“We retained Tangible IP as our patent broker a few years back and they did a great job understanding our technical contributions as a company and the value of our patents,” said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. “They immediately set to preparing first class marketing materials and started a thorough outreach campaign on our behalf. Although we had to decline some initial offers they generated and then had to take our portfolio off the market for a while to accommodate some other business needs, Tangible IP was there when we were finally ready to resume things; they continued to work tirelessly as our advocates throughout and did not relent until they had finally found a good fit for our portfolio pursuant to business terms that make this a win-win with the acquirer. It is rare these days that we find this kind of dedication for such a long period and we feel very fortunate that we had this partnership with them,” said Mr. Mollo.

“For decades, Beamz has been a true pioneer in making music creation accessible to all and they have made really valuable technological contributions to the interactive music & AR/VR spaces along the way,” said Louis Carbonneau, CEO & Founder of Tangible IP. “As an operating company, they did not want to get involved in asserting their patents against several parties, so we had to be creative in finding an acquirer that understood the strength of the assets and would provide our client with just compensation for the value of their patent portfolio,” said Carbonneau. “We had been working with Beamz on this project for quite a while and this is testament, once again, that our long-term approach to business ultimately pays off for our clients.”

To receive information regarding other portfolios presently under brokerage with us, please inquire at info@tangibleip.biz.

Tangible IP, LLC specializes in selling high quality unencumbered patents and has now brokered the sale or license of over 3500 patent assets since its inception and has returned tens of millions of dollars back to inventors, shareholders and patent owners.

Film historian Bobbie O'Steen moderates a panel that focuses on three very talented editors – Carol Littleton, ACE (“E.T. the Extra-terrestrial,” “The Big Chill”), Norman Buckley, ACE (“The O.C.,” “Gossip Girl”), and Brandi Bradburn, ACE (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “This Is Us”) – who have helped so many aspiring editors achieve their goals. They’ll discuss their own career choices that led them down unpredictable and inspiring paths to success and screen some of their work to explain what they learned about shaping compelling and entertaining stories. They'll also give valuable advice on how to build and nurture collaborative relationships and how to advocate for a healthy work/life balance.

All attendees who register for this event will receive a link and password to Vimeo Live an hour prior to the event. This will gain free access for all attendees who register. There’ll be live raffles throughout the event, but attendees must be present.

Our event wouldn’t be possible without our Master Storyteller Sponsors: OWC, ZEISS & American Cinema Editors; as well as our Technology Sponsor: Shutterstock. Following the panel there will be a chance to ask questions in a live Q&A networking event. To register, please go to https://rb.gy/lpcyd8.

Our next Sight, Sound & Story: Live event will be on August 12th. Please go to www.SightSoundandStory.com for up to date information.

The generous support artists and collectors give MOLAA through their donations for this online auction is key for MOLAA to continue to develop and execute its mission through this pandemic.”

— Dr. Lourdes I. Ramos-Rivas, President & CEO of MOLAA.

LONG BEACH, CA, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) is pleased to launch its first fully online auction with 167 artworks from Latin American and Latino artists. Proceeds from this auction will go to benefit the MOLAA COVID-19 Recovery Fund.

As a result of COVID-19, the Museum closed to the public mid-March 2020. The resulting loss of revenue has deeply impacted MOLAA’s operations. The MOLAA COVID-19 Recovery Fund prioritizes the museum’s need to cover the basic expenses to ensure the proper conservation of the permanent collection and loaned artworks at the museum, as well as ongoing operations. With plans to reopen to the public in early July, this fund also contributes to promote the security measures for our staff and visitors as we reopen. The MOLAA COVID-19 Recovery Fund also supports the need to provide new onsite and online programming responding the new guidelines. This fund supports our mission and ensures the extended life of the institution.

“The generous support artists and collectors give MOLAA through their donations for this online auction is key for MOLAA to continue to develop and execute its mission through this pandemic. We have been able to expand our online programming to reach our audiences during our time of closure,” stated Dr. Lourdes I. Ramos-Rivas, President & CEO of MOLAA.

The artworks participating in this auction represent a great variety of Latino & Latin American artists. This grand event is thanks in part to a generous donation from private collector Sammy Sayago. It has allowed MOLAA to organize this important event for the continuity efforts done. Great names of artists that participate in this auction include Leonardo Nierman, Francisco Toledo, Zaida del Rio, among others.

The annual list and research (hashtag: #Top100MSP) identify and honor the top 100 managed services providers (MSPs) in a variety of vertical markets.

• Honorees generated a combined $1.12 billion in vertical market annual recurring revenue (ARR) in 2019, up from $699.1 million in 2018. The surge involved organic growth combined with accelerating merger and acquisition (M&A) activity.
• The most successful vertical market MSPs are zeroing in on financial services and healthcare, while MSPs in the legal and manufacturing sectors also showed particularly strong growth.
• The Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs now manage more than 2.8 million users across their customer sites in 2019, up from 2.6 million in 2018.
• MSPs consider their top vertical market technology partners to be Microsoft (56%), Dell Technologies (22%), Cisco Systems (21%), Datto (19%), ConnectWise (11%) and Ingram Micro (11%).

Helion Technologies – focusing on the Automobile & Heavy Truck Dealer Vertical Market – ranked #6 of the top 100 vertical market MSPs.
