Partnership Between Mastiff and Yggdrazil Group Brings Home Sweet Home to PlayStation®4 and Xbox One This October

A haunting survival horror experience based on real-world Thai mythology and lore

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2018 / — Video game publisher and developer Mastiff, in partnership with Yggdrazil Group, is proud to announce that Home Sweet Home, a chilling first-person survival horror game based on real-world Thai mythology and lore, will be released digitally on the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system from Sony, and PlayStation®VR for PS4™ October 9. A physical edition of Home Sweet Home, which includes the base game and PS®VR mode, will be released exclusively to GameStop stores across North America on October 16.

Pre-order Home Sweet Home from GameStop:

“We are very excited to be working with Mastiff in order to bring the dark, Thai-inspired world of Home Sweet Home to consoles,” shares Saroot Tubloy, Chief Operating Officer of Yggdrazil Group. “The game's real-world lore and mythology is sure to captivate and intrigue players, while its brooding narrative keeps them clinging to the edge of their seat.”

The first in a series of terrifying first-person horror games, Home Sweet Home throws players into a dark and twisted labyrinth, where a miasma of fear fills the air, dread bleeds through cracks in the ceiling and seeps down through broken floorboards, and anxiety grows stronger with every step.

After a long night filled with mourning and sorrow over the recent disappearance of his wife, Tim awakens to find himself in a strange, dilapidated building instead of the comfort of his own home. Naturally confused, he desperately begins to search for a way out while attempting to solve questions that could lead to answers regarding his wife's disappearance. At the same time, he’ll find himself being hunted by malevolent spirits.
There is a dark and sinister secret casting a shadow over this interconnected labyrinth…and without question, it's no longer the happy home that it once was.

● Gripping Thai Horror – A dark narrative inspired by Thai lore, myths, and beliefs that will captivate players while keeping their palms sweating and pulses pounding with fear
● Sharpen Wits, Not Blades – Without weapons to provide defense against the evil spirits, players must keep their wits sharp at all times in order to survive
● Nicely Tied Together – The use of stealth and investigative skills offers gameplay variety and a chance for players to breathe, but not for long….
● Face Your Fears – Experience a new level of first-person fear and terror with PS®VR compatibility

“M2W®’s audience,” McCann continued, “is comprised of powerful and influential marketing execs who control hundreds of millions of brand advertising and communications dollars. And the Fearless Girl embodies the qualities I think they all hope for and value in corporate, non-profit and civic marketing efforts and governance.

Artist Liam Grae Set To Release Debut Single "Uniform" On October 5th, 2018

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2018 / — Is there a place for a Southern Gentleman at the top of the music charts? Soul-pop artist Liam Grae is determined to find out. Born in Dallas, Texas, the 25 year old artist first cut his teeth recording demos as a child. He moved on as a stage performer in Germany, then honed his writing skills in Nashville before landing at the epicenter of pop music – Los Angeles, California.

Liam’s debut single, “Uniform” is set to drop on October 5, 2018 and was co-written and recorded with Dale Anthoni (The Vamps, Carlie Hanson,) produced by Andrew Furze (So You Think You Can Dance, The X Factor) and mixed by Todd Bergman (Alessia Cara, Nicki Minaj, Foster the People.)

Additional songs co-written with Liam Grae and Tommy Parker (Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Janet Jackson,) Hayley Warner (Tori Kelly, Nickelback,) Dale Anthoni (The Vamps, Carlie Hanson) and Arielle MacArthur (Marie Osmond, John Rich) will be released later this fall.

“Uniform” is a seamless blend of classic soul and organic gospel textures, infused with danceable future pop beats. As a singer-songwriter, Liam's songs touch on what it means to be a young man in a modern world – combining humor and heart in equal measure. Collaborating with some of the most exciting pop writers in LA, Liam Grae's love of classic rat-pack singers and pop-icons has him picking up where George Michael and Robin Thicke left off.

On stage, Liam Grae's driving beats and killer rhythm section serve to make his point – that music should get people out of their chairs and look good doing it. With influences ranging from Marvin Gaye to Frank Sinatra, and with interest already pouring in, Liam Grae is set to make a huge impact in 2018.

“Uniform” will be available on all digital platforms including iTunes and Spotify, on October 5th, 2018.

— Nan McCann, M2Moms® producer

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, September 19, 2018 / — Over 35 speakers on topics ranging from experiential marketing and location-based mom tech, to the latest research on moms and social, digital and mobile communications techniques will be participating in the 14th Annual M2Moms® – The Marketing to Moms Conference, Oct. 2 & 3, NYC.

When you consider the constant stress and time challenges facing today’s moms, brand marketing messages need to be spot-on and delivered at the right time on the right channel. “

PK Safety Launch Revolutionary Stop ‘N’ Go Safety Gloves

Stop 'N' Go Safety Glove

YSTRAD MYNACH, COUNTY (OPTIONAL), UNITED KINGDOM, September 19, 2018 / — PPE Supplier PK Safety are set to dramatically reduce reversing incidents and accidents in the waste collection and transfer sectors with the launch of their Stop’N’Go range of handling gloves this month. Designed for use by banksmen and reversing assistants, the gloves are coloured red and green on the palm and back of the hand respectively to align with the hand signals suggested by the HSE for communicating with reversing vehicles. The range has been designed with the collaboration of SUEZ R&R Ltd and has been created with the aim of providing a simple and convenient solution to improving reversing operations both on-site and whilst undertaking collection rounds.

PK Safety are a supplier of protective equipment and workwear to a wide range of local authorities, waste collectors and waste processors. They pride themselves on working closely with their clients to provide innovative solutions to everyday safety and operational issues and irritations. Bevan Wells (Director of PK Safety) says, “The launch of the Stop’N’Go range of safety gloves is a perfect example of what we offer our clients. Close collaboration and expertly tailored products to both their industries and daily tasks”. They currently supply clients like Suez R&R Ltd, Cardiff Council and Cory Environmental and are hoping that their latest move with the Stop’N’Go safety glove range will help both their existing clients and also be used throughout the waste sector.

This product innovation was created with the specific aim of tackling the high number of reversing accidents and associated fatalities in the waste industry. “With the largest cause for fatalities being ‘struck by a moving vehicle’ and a quarter of these deaths occurring whilst reversing it seemed a primary area of concern that we could do relatively little about as a protective equipment supplier, and that’s what we wanted to change” says Obe Nunn (Technical Advisor, PK Safety). Roy further points out that “if there is no death then a reversing accident can cause significant, life changing injuries or substantial damage to property or premises, all of which pose large and unneeded costs to the company(ies) involved.”

The safety gloves have been designed to offer what PK Safety call a “convenient switch” for waste companies. They are currently available in a textured rubber coating called Cratex (crinkle latex) which offers users improved grip and water resistance on the job, features that PK Safety have identified as critical for carrying out basic collection and processing tasks in the recycling sector. Available in 2 different cut levels and 2 levels of coating the safety gloves cater for a wide range of scenarios and alternative tasks.

Roy Wells (Managing Director of PK Safety) explained “It’s such a simple idea, we can’t believe it hasn’t been done before. We’ve had fantastic feedback from everyone we’ve presented the Stop ‘N’ Go concept too. There is nothing to install, nothing to hold and nothing you need to be trained on which makes it the convenient switch from your current safety gloves. No stress, no mess. We’ve kept it nice and simple, how safety should be.”

“The real joy of this solution is how it fits seamlessly with the guidelines offered by the HSE for assisting a vehicle whilst reversing. It simply makes communication clearer and more effective and that was the main aim throughout our collaboration with PK Safety. I think it’s a simple but effective innovation that will hopefully make a real difference for waste collectors and the way we carry out reversing operations” says Chris Beddoes CMIOSH (SHEQ Manager at SUEZ R&R Ltd).

Participate In Sea Turtle Conservation Program At Estrella Del Mar In Mazatlan, Mexico

Resort Guests Help Release Turtles to Sea Every Sunset from September-January

MAZATLAN, MEXICO, MEXICO, September 19, 2018 / — MAZATLAN, MEXICO – September 19, 2018 — Estrella del Mar, a 900-acre. gated oceanfront resort community in Mazatlan, Mexico offers its resort guests an opportunity to enjoy everything from championship golf to water sports by day and then help to release turtle hatchlings to the ocean at sunset every night from September through January as part of the resort’s turtle conservation program. Guests of Estrella del Mar can enjoy a free guided tour of the resort’s Turtle Preserve including a visit to incubation facilities and the release of hatchlings.

For its effort in the conservation and protection of sea turtles for the past 20 years, the Estrella del Mar Turtle Sanctuary received the prestigious Don Manuel Orantes 2018 Award, at the 20th Annual Meeting for the Conservation of Marine Turtles in Mexico in Loreto, Baja California Sur.

During the summer months, the busy turtle breeding season begins, and the resort welcomes students, tourists and local residents who want to help and observe the process. The first turtles arrive at the beginning of the rainy season in July. Once these turtles arrive, the Estrella del Mar staff works around the clock—trying to locate the trails left in the sand; following them to the nest; and excavating, cataloging, and relocating the eggs to a secure nursery at the resort’s turtle sanctuary where they will be protected from predators and man. The eggs are placed at the exact depth that the mother laid them where they then incubate for 45 days.

After those 45 days, guests get to witness the miracle of life as these shiny, precious little creatures dig their way out of the nest, shaking off bits of sand and opening their eyes to their new world. Normally, these hatchlings would immediately return to the sea, but the resort’s biologist tries to allow the baby a time to recover for a brief period before placing them back on the sand and allowing them to imprint their birth place before they make a dash for the ocean.

Acai Express Opening Two New Superfood Shops – On Fast Track to U.S. Expansion.

The cornerstone of Acai Express fast-casual menu is the acai berry. The Acai Express franchise differentiates itself by promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Leading Organic Super Food Franchise Signs Two New U.S. Franchisees

Acai Express®, the Puerto Rico-based lifestyle brand that offers an acai berry fresh fruit and nutrient-rich menu for healthier living, has awarded two U.S. franchises: one in Denver, Colorado and the other in Rockaway Township, New Jersey.

These new franchisees, signed shortly after Acai Express® entered the U.S market in May, speak to the popularity and health benefits of the acai berry and consumer demand for the turnkey Acai Express® franchise concept. From their humble beginnings as a single San Juan surf side food truck, Acai Express® has grown to thirteen (13) locations in Puerto Rico, and three (3) franchise locations in Cocoa Beach, FL; Denver, CO, and Rockaway Township, NJ.

The cornerstone of Acai Express® fast-casual menu is the acai berry, a purple, antioxidant-rich stone fruit that hails from the Amazon River basin. The Acai Express® franchise differentiates itself by using only 100% pure, Grade A, organic acai berries to promote a healthy lifestyle. The menu of high quality, high nutrient meals, grain bowls, and/or desserts includes acai, oatmeal and pitaya bowls, smoothies, salads, juices, and lemonades. ”The preference for a healthy lifestyle and the demand for a superfood based diet has never been stronger.” Says Acai Express® founder, Hector Westerband. He envisions Acai Express® outposts in every city in America and around the globe.

“Acai Express® offers a high-quality alternative to fast food, with healthy fresh foods that taste great and are good for you.” Says Denver, CO franchisee, Jacob Kahn. “In addition to a turnkey operating system and its entrepreneurial spirit, I was particularly drawn to the Acai Express® brands commitment to social responsibility. Specifically, the support Acai Express® provides the Brazilian communities where the acai berry is grown to help conserve the Amazon rainforest. I am excited to be bringing the brand to Colorado.”

New franchisee George Paul in NJ agrees, "I decided to become an Acai Express franchisee because I believe there is a growing trend in the restaurant industry for healthier options not only among fitness conscious individuals but also amongst teens, Millennials and even the older generations. I believe Acai Express Superfood Bowls is well positioned to succeed with its Superfood menu and commitment to providing our guests with healthful and freshly made products in an atmosphere that promotes fitness, wellness, and positivity."

Acai Express® launched its U.S. expansion effort with the help of franchise industry expert, Gary Occhiogrosso, founder of Franchise Growth Solutions, LLC. Mr. Occhiogrosso has over 30 years’ experience in franchise development and sales and was integral to the success of nationally recognized brands including Ranch *1, Desert Moon Fresh Mexican Grille, and brands found under the multi-brand franchisor, TRUFOODS, LLC.


Acai Express® is an Acai-based super food shop that uses fresh and organic ingredients to create nutrition-rich meals for active and adventurous consumers who are proactive about their health and wellbeing. From one surfside food truck in Puerto Rico in 2013, Acai Express has grown into a recognized lifestyle brand available in 15 locations in the Puerto Rico and the U.S. Acai Express combines the growing trend toward one bowl meals, superfood ingredients, and fresh fruit smoothies in a socially responsible business model.

Franchise Growth Solutions, LLC is a strategic planning, franchise development and sales organization offering franchise sales, brand concept and development, strategic planning, real estate and architectural development, vendor management, lead generation, and advertising, marketing, and PR including social media.
