Samuel Brozina Continues to Delight in Vintage Airplane Ownership

MILLVILLE, NJ, USA, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pilot Samuel Brozina, an ERCO Ercoupe owner from Millville, New Jersey, outlines his passion for rare vintage aircraft.

Now out of production for half a century, the Engineering and Research Corporation Ercoupe was a civil aircraft market super-success in postwar America. One of a number of vintage airplanes today coveted by enthusiasts, ERCO Ercoupe owner Samuel Brozina, from Millville, New Jersey, explains more as he continues to delight in his passion for aviation.

"Something of a rarity among more modern civil aircraft such as Cessnas and Pipers, today, vintage airplanes are in big demand," explains Brozina, a licensed pilot. Samuel is also the proud owner of his very own ERCO Ercoupe, a low-wing monoplane aircraft designed and built in the United States until the start of the 1970s.

Subsequently out of production for some 50 years, Samuel Brozina is among the latest individuals to get his hands on an ERCO Ercoupe. "Today a rarity with fewer than 1,000 ERCO Ercoupes still registered to fly in the U.S., even among fellow pilots and aviation enthusiasts, the most common question I'm asked about my own airplane is, 'So, what exactly is it?'" reveals Samuel Brozina, clearly amused by the puzzled expressions often met in response to his rare vintage airplane.

First manufactured by the Engineering and Research Corporation shortly before World War II, following the war, several other manufacturers subsequently continued its production until 1970. "It was in the late 1960s that the bottom started to fall out of the civil aircraft market," suggests Ercoupe expert Samuel Brozina, "ultimately putting an end to the production of the now increasingly rare airplane as a result."

Marketed in its day as the future of personal travel, as well as claiming to be the world's safest plane, peak ERCO Ercoupe sales reached more than 6,000 annually. "Now, however, less than 2,000 survive," explains Samuel Brozina, a fan of the fixed-wing aircraft since childhood, "with more than half of those sadly no longer registered to take to the skies."

Samuel Brozina, who holds a private pilot's license, says he's always been a particular admirer of World War II-era warbirds. In something of a case of good fortune, Brozina's own vintage aircraft came from a seller in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, less than 100 miles away from his Cumberland County home in Millville, New Jersey.

Such a fan of the Engineering and Research Corporation is Samuel Brozina that the pilot has even commissioned a one-of-a-kind ERCO jacket patch since purchasing his own plane. Designed especially and manufactured as just one-of-one, more generally, jacket patches and pilots, Brozina says, go together like bread and butter. "As a pilot, I'm no exception!" he suggests.

"A lifelong aviation enthusiast and a particular fan of World War II warbirds, it's incredibly nice," adds Samuel Brozina, wrapping up, "to finally own my own piece of aviation history from this fascinating period in time."

COVID-19 Charity Support: The Hawai’i Fudge Company Providing All Profit from Approved Campaigns to Local Charities

Pre-Father’s Day Test Generates $11,000.00 Raised for Charities Including Maui Onstage, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Aloha Shriners and Willie K Cancer Fund

WAILUKU, HI, USA, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Hawai’i Fudge Company has sent out the first profit checks to Hawai’i charities who need money now more than ever. 100% of the profits go to the charities who send a unique code to their mailing lists. $11,000 in total contributions were raised in the first two weeks. Based on the success seen initially,

The Hawai’i Fudge Company is opening up the program, which provides all profits to the participating charities, to five more worthy groups in Hawai’i. Interested charities should apply by email to Jonathan@HawaiiFudge.com stating their charity name, charity purpose, contact person, and contact phone and email.

The company expects even greater sales and therefore larger donations to charities who offer this to their supporters for Father’s Day. During this time shipping is free to all sending gifts to Hawai’i and anywhere in the USA. “We are so thrilled to be able to give to our community during these passionately challenging times,” said Jonathan Todd, Senior Vice President at The Hawaii Fudge Company. “Most amazing is the support of our community and the mainland for our charities. It’s hard for a charity to ask for money directly right now. COVID-19 has so many people out of work or making less than they used to. Instead of a direct ask, we offer charities a unique link that they email to their supporter list and post on their Facebook or social media sites. Supporters are informed that shopping through the link provides all the profits of these orders to their charity. People are getting a little taste of Hawai’i and some decadence during stressful times, knowing that the profits go to support what they care about.”

Positive Charity Impact:

Commenting about her first check for over $1,000, Luana Whitford-Mitchell, Executive Director, Maui OnStage at the Historic Iao Theater, said,
“The response from our Maui OnStage ohana during this extremely tough time has been FANTASTIC! In a little over 2 weeks, we raised over $1,000! I was blown away! The Hawaii Fudge Company has been incredibly easy to work with. They provided everything we needed to promote this fundraiser. All we had to do was copy and paste the information into our email blasts and social media and the fudge basically sold itself. So easy! Mahalo to the Hawaii Fudge Company from the bottom of our hearts!”

“With the passing of Maui legend Willie K, there has been an outpouring of support from all over Hawai’i,” said Todd. “We began this program to support Willie K’s family knowing he was in stage 4 and terminal. Watching people give back to the family is heart-warming. His family deserves all the support possible as a tribute to what Willie K contributed to Maui and to our lives.” The link for The Hawaii Fudge Company support of the Willie K Cancer Fund is https://www.hawaiifudge.com/discount/WILLIEK19

Said Todd, “For the first time in our company’s history we are asking people not to come to our site to support a local business, but rather to go to special links to support charities that mean something bigger than us. The letters of thanks and the calls with these charities is simply priceless to those of us who benefitted from this community for years. It just feels good to be giving money to the community right now.”

HarLau Productions “Inimicus” Drama has completed casting and is set to begin filming by early 2021

DURHAM, NC, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Inimicus” by HarLau Productions

Drama has completed casting and is set to begin filming by early 2021

For Immediate Release:

As announced by HarLau Productions, the debut production from producer/director Paula Lauzon titled “Inimicus” has completed its casting search and will begin filming in late 2020/early 2021. Jeff Briggs, together with Katherine McHargue, are the lead actors of the film, which centers around a former soldier struggling from the effects of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Briggs, a native North Carolinian, began his acting career in 2005. To date, he has appeared in over forty film projects with several others currently in post-production. McHargue, who hails from Virginia, began her acting career in 2010 and has worked in front as well as behind the camera on several TV shows. Both are represented by Beverly J. Brock, The Brock Agency, Inc., North Carolina.

“Inimicus” also stars David Afflick, Lee Darnell, and Lawrence Gilligan. Anthony Varon will be producing the film while Lauzon will be directing.

The story follows Clyde Duncan, a former soldier who struggles to reintegrate into normal life after several tours of military duty. Despite his best efforts, Clyde's inner demons take center stage as his wife and friends try desperately to keep his PTSD from consuming his life.

“The artistic mission of this film is to try to inspire viewers that there is more to be gained from life by not giving up hope,” said Lauzon. “We want to create something pleasing to audiences but we also hope it inspires them to get involved any way they can to help people with this terrible disease.”

"Inimicus" shines a light on the very real trauma that so many returning from the battlefield face on a daily basis. As of this writing, PTSD affects approximately 3.5 percent of U.S. adults, and an estimated one in 11 people will be diagnosed with PTSD in their lifetime.

Made by future general Richard Butler while an armorer at Ft. Pitt (1765-1770), signed tomahawk was carried to battle by Lt. John McClellan of Pa. Riflemen

Because of its historical importance and incomparable line of previous ownership, there was great interest in the tomahawk in the days leading up to the auction. The bidding opened at $240,000.”

— Dan Morphy, Founder and President of Morphy Auctions

DENVER, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A circa 1765-1770 Revolutionary War presentation pipe tomahawk made by future army general Richard Butler and inscribed to Lieutenant John McClellan of the Pennsylvania Riflemen was sold on May 27 by Morphy Auctions in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for a staggering $664,200, inclusive of buyer’s premium. It is a world-record auction price for any tomahawk.

“Because of its historical importance and incomparable line of previous ownership, there was great interest in the tomahawk in the days leading up to the auction. We knew ahead of time that a couple of serious players would be competing for it,” said Morphy Auctions founder and president Dan Morphy. “There were six phone lines in use when the bidding opened at $240,000. It quickly escalated and was sold to an American buyer.”

Arguably the most important and best-known American tomahawk in existence, it was featured in the 2005 "Clash of Empires: The British, French & Indian War, 1754-1763" an exhibition of French and Indian War items commemorating the 250th anniversary of the conflict. Exhibition stops included the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh, the Canadian War Museum/Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, and The Smithsonian in Washington, DC.

Displaying extremely fine workmanship, the silver-mounted and inlaid tomahawk was hand-forged and signed by Richard Butler, a respected armorer at Fort Pitt (Pa.) from 1765-1770. Butler's daybook, which is held in Carnegie Library, gives a record of his time at Fort Pitt and lists the many pipe tomahawks he made.

Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1743, Butler moved with his family to Lancaster, Pa., at age five. Around 1760, the Butlers relocated to the nearby developing settlement of Carlisle, where his father worked as a gunsmith. The younger Butler apprenticed under his father at the gun shop, which still stands near the city’s Court Square.

In 1772, following his time at Fort Pitt, Butler was commissioned a captain in the Pennsylvania Militia. Over time, he gained the trust of Native Americans in the region and, in partnership with his brother, conducted fur trading with the tribes and also provided gunsmithing services. In 1775, Butler left the Pennsylvania Militia and became an agent of Indian Affairs for the region. He strengthened relations with the Shawnee and Delaware Indians, signing a Treaty of Neutrality with them. In 1776 he was commissioned a major in the Continental Army's 8th Pennsylvania Regiment. He fought with the riflemen at Saratoga and commanded the 9th Pennsylvania Regiment at Stony Point. Subsequently, he served as colonel of the 5th Pennsylvania regiment at Yorktown, and afterward remained in the Continental Army. In 1783 he was given an honorary promotion to brigadier general. He was one of five brothers who all served in the military and were known collectively as “the fighting Butlers.” Richard Butler was killed in 1791 at the Battle on the Miami River in Ohio.

Lieutenant John McClellan, the original owner of the beautifully inlaid, silver-mounted tomahawk sold by Morphy’s, was from the outskirts of Carlisle. He served with Company D of Thompson’s Battalion, Pennsylvania Riflemen, and carried the tomahawk with him to war. “Riflemen were required to carry tomahawks as secondary weapons, as their longrifles were not equipped for bayonets,” Dan Morphy explained.

The tomahawk’s extensive line of provenance includes The Earl of Warwick (Warwick Castle, England), who loaned the tomahawk for display at The Tower of London; and other distinguished private collections in the US and UK. It is depicted on the cover of Indian Tomahawks & Frontiersman Belt Axes and appears in several other respected reference books.

Commenting on the $2 million auction session and the success of the Butler/McClellan tomahawk, Dan Morphy said: “We’re extremely happy with the results of yesterday’s auction, which shows that the market is stronger than ever. It’s always exciting when a rare piece of history crosses the auction block, especially one that has passed through so many important hands and has been so well documented.”

On day two of Morphy’s three-day auction event, featuring Extraordinary, Sporting, and Collector Firearms, Morphy's auctioned Annie Oakley's (1860-1926) custom-made "Little Miss Sure Shot" Stevens Model 44 .25-20 single-shot rifle, engraved with the name “ANNIE OAKLEY,” for $528,900.

Lonseal Flooring’s Topseal Scores High on Wear Layer Testing

Wear Layer

Lonfloor® Galvanized Topseal

Topseal Wear Layer

Lonstrand® Topseal

Wear Layer

Lonwood® Natural Topseal

The results of our internal testing show why Topseal continues to perform well in use, and will continue to
provide our customers with a durable flooring option.”

— Lace Greene-Cordts, Marketing Manager

CARSON, CA, USA, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The wear layer is the top surface of resilient flooring that provides durability, as well as stain and scratch resistance. In other words, the wear layer is your sheet vinyl flooring’s bodyguard. It helps your floor last longer.

Topseal is a factory-applied urethane finish that creates a “no-wax” floor finish. It is applied as a surface coating measuring 30-microns, three times thicker than most PUR finishes. Since it is factory-applied, there is no need to apply any additional finish after installation, and no need to re-apply any finish for the life of the floor. As a urethane finish, you are also getting the best possible type of floor finish, with much better protection than standard acrylic finishes are capable of providing.

Internal testing of Topseal was performed against 5 high-profile competitors’ products with similar specialized finishes. Evaluations included thickness measurements, scratch resistance, and wear resistance.

While the other top layers performed well, Topseal produced above-average results on all testing across the board. On average, Topseal is one of the thickest finishes available. Topseal also landed the highest score in scratch-resistant, sharing the spot with only 2 other competitors. It also showed the least amount of wear over the competitors with the same top coat thickness.

Floor finishes are applied to the wear layer of resilient flooring and help provide additional protection. Floor finishes have the ability to further improve a wear layer’s stain and scratch resistance, and in some cases improve slip resistance. So your floor’s bodyguard now has some body armor.

Topseal was introduced in 2010 and created to provide our customers with a more eco-friendly floor finish option. Topseal seal is UV-cured, which means faster curing time, reduced use of solvents, and lower VOC emissions during manufacturing. Additionally, its easier maintenance can result in less water usage and waste for the life of the floor. Topseal is only available in Lonseal flooring product lines.

About Lonseal. Celebrating over 48 years of durability and performance in a variety of commercial industries, Lonseal® is known as the “Little Giant” in the resilient sheet vinyl flooring industry. Lonseal offers a unique selection of resilient exterior and interior sheet vinyl flooring in embossed and smooth surfaces. They provide designs that best fits commercial spaces ranging from industrial to healthcare. Lonseal services a range of commercial applications including healthcare, educational, fitness, corporate, exhibits, entertainment stage studios, as well as transportation industries such as EMS, aviation and marine. Lonseal’s products are specified through architects and designers nationwide. For more information, visit LONSEAL.COM or call 310.830.7111.

Prominent West Hollywood Gym Owner, Tom Nelson, Reacts To Economic Impairment Report

Tom Nelson, West Hollywood’s Top Trainer

Muscle Mechanics

“Small businesses like mine that were denied an EIDL loan and are having difficulty receiving a PPP loan are forced to open whether given 'permission' or not”.

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — While the world is gradually starting to open its doors to customers one step at a time, its hard to ignore the economic punch this pandemic has taken on small businesses such as fitness studios and other players in the fitness field. In an article published by Bloomberg News, investment bank Harrison Co. has claimed that fitness clubs hit by Covid-19 closures are facing a swell of bankruptcies with more than $10 billion in sales wiped out as clients abandon memberships. Winner of the Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Gym in Los Angeles – 2020”, Tom Nelson, is no stranger to these tough times and reflects on how his popular West Hollywood gym, Muscle Mechanics, has taken a toll from this pandemic.

Gyms already filled with debt face long-term income declines amid social-distancing initiatives to counter the spread of coronavirus in the U.S. In response, Tom states, “As the owner of Muscle Mechanics I can honestly say that my company has lost $100,000 in revenue and gone $80,000 in debt since closing on March 16.” Unfortunately, a number of other fitness owners are also being forced to deal with these staggering numbers that continue to increase as the days go by. People also aren't exactly feeling eager to run to their gym amidst some openings, according to the report. To avoid being in close proximity to other individuals, folks are likely to continue shunning closely packed fitness centers.

Federal and state assistance is also a consideration that Tom does not believe is supporting small businesses to the best of its capacity. Tom says, “Small businesses like mine that were denied an EIDL loan and are having difficulty receiving a PPP loan are forced to open whether given 'permission' or not”. He continues by saying, “This, in effect, makes law-abiding, tax-paying citizens outlaws for opening their businesses to provide for their families”.

A Harrison survey of 1,000 fitness club users, reports that more than a third of gym members have canceled or plan to terminate existing memberships. Some ideas the leaders of the fitness industry are considering to keep clients safe are using painters tape to mark spaced out areas to practice social distancing, masks for members and employees, extensive disinfecting, and no community chalk buckets. Members of the fitness industry stress that, while they really need to reopen soon to save their businesses, they will work with the state of California and local officials to do it safely.

Tom Nelson is West Hollywood’s Top Trainer and owner of Muscle Mechanics, which is a gym that is completely private, fully stocked with commercial quality exercise equipment.

Tom has been a fitness enthusiast his entire life but decided to make it his career 15 years ago. In that time, Tom scored the highest in the history of the ISSA certification board, built the largest Private Training Facility in Los Angeles, and have been named West Hollywood’s Top Trainer by his peers in the fitness industry. He has also had an outstanding record as a bodybuilding and figure trainer that is unequalled in the industry – 5 first place wins for men in bodybuilding and 16 first place wins for women in figure contests.

As opposed to simply being a Fitness Trainer, Tom considers himself to be a Fitness Teacher. In all his years as a Fitness Teacher and Nutrition Specialist, Tom has learned that the more someone understands about what they are trying to accomplish, the more successful they will be at it. So, instead of simply telling you what to do in each session, Tom teaches you how to exercise properly, which means you learn the most effective, efficient and safest ways to exercise.

In addition, he will teach you “everything” you need to know about nutrition and how to apply that knowledge to your life. Tom is one of the most sought-after Nutrition Specialists in the Los Angeles area, and has developed a system (patent pending) that simplifies nutrition so anyone can understand it. You will know exactly what to eat, and when, in order to accomplish any goal you set for yourself. You will also understand how to effectively “cheat” on your nutrition plan with absolutely no guilt.

Tom is one of the most sought-after Nutrition Specialists and Trainers in the Los Angeles area. His goal is to reach as many people as he can to spread his message of fitness and nutrition. “While my achievements are very public and well documented, it is my lesser-known accomplishments that are the most rewarding: helping many people lose over 100 pounds; providing nutritional guidance that can reverse illness and disease; improving quality of life for seniors; sponsoring Olympic and Paralympic Athletes; and, of course, the volunteer work that I do,” states Tom Nelson. “These are the things that make my job and life interesting, challenging, fun and rewarding!”

VCOM Provides First-Glance Research on New MindfulMEDS app For Medical School Students

VCOM-Carolinas and Sharpen partnered to create focused medical student content

The MindfulMEDS app allows medical students to learn valuable mindfulness and stress management techniques that will help them throughout their lives”

— Robyn Hussa Farrell, CEO and co-Founder of Sharpen

SPARTANBURG, SC, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — VCOM-Carolinas and Sharpen (a mental health content and technology company) shared their preliminary findings from a study of medical school students using a personal health app at the annual American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) Conference in March. The app, MindfulMEDS, was created by Sharpen in partnership with the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) in Spartanburg and provides students self-help information, techniques, and guidance in a safe environment. Unique to Sharpen, the content is offered in the voices and perspectives of medical students themselves.

"As mental health continues moving to the forefront of campus discussions, Sharpen wants to provide something students can rely on for daily mental health maintenance," said Robyn Hussa Farrell, CEO and co-Founder of Sharpen. “The MindfulMEDS app allows medical students to learn valuable mindfulness and stress management techniques that will help them throughout their lives.”

As of April 2020, there were 111 registered users on the app, 2,978 pageviews on the homepage of the app, 777 pageviews on courses, and 29 contact clicks that connected students directly to a mental health resource. In light of these positive preliminary findings, Sharpen and VCOM hope this innovative approach provides a model for other medical students to follow given the profession’s desire to promote resilience and mental fitness of our medical students. To learn more about MindfulMEDS and its impact on medical school students, watch the virtual presentation shared during AACOM here.

Dr. Natalie Fadel, Director of Academic and Counseling Services at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine, was excited to learn about Sharpen’s evidence-based mobile and web app rooted in building resilience.

“As a clinical psychologist working to support the mental health of medical students who are under an incredible amount of stress, I needed a resource that would engage our students and provide tools to use outside of individual sessions,” said Fadel. “Knowing that our students have access to a wealth of resources to support their mental health is reassuring, and also another important step we can take to reduce stigma around mental health in healthcare.”
