Charity Jennifer Ann’s Group announces the “12th Annual Life.Love. Game Design Challenge” with a 1st place prize of $10,000 for a video game about gaslighting.

Can you create a video game about gaslighting . . . without using violence in the game itself?”

— Jennifer Ann's Group

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, U.S., March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jennifer Ann’s Group announces the “12th Annual Life.Love. Game Design Challenge” with a first place prize of $10,000.

Can you create a video game about gaslighting . . . without using violence in the game itself?

Since 2008, Jennifer Ann’s Group (JenniferAnn.org), an Atlanta based nonprofit charity, has run a game design challenge to produce and publish serious video games through its “Gaming Against Violence" program. The topics for this annual competition have included bystander awareness, consent, healthy relationships, and teen dating violence. The contest is open to all over the age of 13 and receives entries from both the domestic and international video game community.

The goal of the Life.Love. Game Design Challenge is to publish serious video games that engage, educate, and empower teens about healthy relationships. The contest is the longest-running of its kind and has been recognized as a Top 10 Trailblazer program by the National Youth Advisory Board for its focus on prevention of teen dating violence. Video games that have been published through the Gaming Against Violence program have led to two published studies validating their effectiveness at changing unhealthy beliefs and attitudes.

Drew Crecente, Executive Director of Jennifer Ann’s Group, has this to say:

“Video games are often unfairly blamed for violence in our society. Using them as a tool for social change to prevent violence is fitting and also very effective. Adolescents prefer to explore a sensitive issue like dating abuse through self-paced exploration and these free video games are an ideal way for them to learn this critical information. Educators also appreciate the fact that these games, although free, are evidence-based and expert informed. Parents also like that these games are an easy and judgment-free approach to engaging their teenagers about healthy dating relationships.”

Registration for the contest is open now. The contest will run in two rounds with the first round consisting of submitting a narrative about their game idea. Finalists will be selected from this first round and they will be given the opportunity to develop a game based on their game pitch.

The first round game pitches are due by March 31, 2019.

Rules, sign-up information, FAQs, and information about gaslighting are available through the gaslight game contest site at: https://gaslight.games/contest

Several of the previous winning games are available via Jennifer Ann’s Group’s serious game portal at: https://JAGga.me All games are free and can be played in a web browser or downloaded through the app stores.

ABOUT Jennifer Ann’s Group – Jennifer Ann’s Group is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization preventing teen dating violence through awareness, education, and advocacy. The organization has been instrumental in the passing of legislation mandating teen dating violence awareness in schools and has distributed over 1 million free educational materials to schools, churches, and other organizations throughout the U.S. and U.K. at no cost to the recipients.

On February 15 2006, Jennifer Ann Crecente – a high school senior – was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. Jennifer was an honor roll student in high school, a camp counselor, a hospital volunteer, and participated in community theatre with her dad. Jennifer Ann’s Group was founded by her father.

 Richard W. Pogue, fondly known as Dick, and widely recognized as a powerful and influential voice in Cleveland’s legal, corporate, and civic circles has a legacy of tremendous professional and leadership accomplishments. Throughout his stellar career, he has been identified as one of the most influential business leaders in NE Ohio, and was previously named by Cleveland Magazine as “the most powerful man in the city.” As the recipient of the 2015 Ohio Bar Association’s highest honor, Mr. Pogue was referred to as the “gold standard personified,” for his integrity, professionalism, legal acumen, and community service.

Those who have had the privilege to work and serve with Mr. Pogue believe his most defining characteristics are commitment to community and regionalism as a force for economic advancement, belief in the power of public and private partnerships, his professionalism, kindness, humility, and respect–for everyone.

Introducing Kharbon, the True Wireless Waterproof Earbuds with 1-Month Battery Life

Enjoy Kharbon anywhere – IPX7 Waterproof | Bluetooth 5.0

Doubles as a power bank that can charge all your devices

Ultra Compact & Sleek – Made with aircraft grade brushed aluminum

Kharbon is the longest lasting wireless earbuds ever developed. With over 150 hours of listening with just one charge, you’ll never be without your music again.

You already have to charge your devices constantly, you shouldn’t have to do the same with your headphones.”

— Kharbon Audio

PALO ALTO, CA, USA, March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “You already have to charge your devices constantly, you shouldn’t have to do the same with your headphones.”

This is the idea that gave birth to Kharbon wireless earbuds, the first earbuds that deliver studio-quality sound for a month on just one charge. Having launched on the popular crowdfunding website Indiegogo just days ago, it has already sped past its initial $10,000 goal. Backers, audiophiles, and Kharbon’s founders are all excited about how Kharbon is changing the true wireless headphone industry, and it’s easy to see why.

Most wireless earbuds provide as little as 90 minutes of playback before they need to spend hours charging in a portable carrying case. Even after that, the case may only hold 3-4 charges before it needs to be charged itself! It just isn’t worth the effort.

Kharbon solves this problem with its state-of-the-art micro battery and carrying case/charger. The earbuds alone last 8 hours on a charge, meaning they can go an entire workday with ease. The carrying case holds an additional 142 hours of charging capacity (the average number of working hours in a month is only about 112). And finally, one 15-minute charge is enough to power the headphones for 3 hours. Never wait for your music again, and never be held back by chargers and wires.

Kharbon represents a breakthrough in audio technology not only for its unprecedented battery life. It’s also the only the most durable set of true wireless earbuds on the market. Kharbon has an IP67 waterproof and dustproof rating, meaning the earbuds are completely impermeable and can even be submerged under water safely. Perfect for swimmers, beach-goers, cross-country runners, and busy people in general, Kharbon is stronger and lasts longer.

Bluetooth 5.0 wireless technology guarantees flawless connectivity at the highest ranges. Listeners can safely leave their phones or tablets in a locker or bag and enjoy crystal-clear sound up to 35 feet away. Other benefits of the most up-to-date wireless tech include instant-pairing and syncing, no lag when making calls or watching videos, and wireless access to digital assistants like Google And Siri.

Kharbon’s custom nano speakers were developed by leading engineers who worked for leading brands like Bose and Harman Kardon. The secret to Kharbon’s world-class sound is its proprietary graphene driver. Graphene is a particle that is stronger than steel yet 1,000 times lighter than paper, and by utilizing cutting-edge nanotechnology, Kharbon’s engineers have harnessed the power of this ultra-sensitive material in each speaker. The result is sound that precisely recreates the original audio recording of each track. Delivering Hi-Fi sound that rivals top studio headphones, audiophiles will finally have a pair of true wireless earbuds they can get behind.

Ergonomic specialists designed Kharbon for comfort and ease of use. A smart-touch control system allows the user to adjust the volume, take calls, skip tracks and much more with an intuitive series of taps. Or, all functions can be dictated using voice control, including accessing messages and surfing the web.

Kharbon’s most welcome advancement may be its weightless comfort. The curves, the weight, the grip, and the pressure of Kharbon earbuds were designed specifically to induce a neutral feeling in the ear. They feel like nothing is there. Wear them for 1 hour or 150 without pain, itching, or slippage.

An added benefit of Kharbon’s perfect-fit ergonomic technology is its noise-canceling capability. Use both buds to find inspiration in isolation or let the stress melt away. Or, use just one singular earbud to stay aware of your surroundings.

When it comes time to put Kharbon away, the earbuds’ carrying case will charge them for 142 hours before needing to be charged itself. The case features a weatherproof magnetic locking system that keeps the earbuds safe from shock, dust, and water. It also doubles as a 2,000 mAh power bank that’s able to charge any device.

Kharbon true wireless earbuds are universally compatible with all devices (Apple, Windows, Android, etc) and with all digital assistants. Simply pair them, put them in, and press play. The wireless headphone experience has never been easier or sounded as good as it does with Kharbon.

About Kharbon
The founders of Kharbon were inspired by a simple idea: they wanted to bring the convenience of wired headphones into the wireless world. To do this, they knew they needed not only to deliver a boost in sound quality but also to completely revolutionize the battery used in micro wireless devices such as earbuds. By bringing the best design and audio engineers to the table, they developed the Kharbon prototype. But they didn’t stop there. After packing in all the state-of-the-art features they could (like Bluetooth 5.0, IP67 weatherproofing, a 15-min fast charge and more), Kharbon was finally ready to take the audio world by storm.

To find out more about the world’s longest lasting true wireless earbuds, visit Kharbon’s page on Indiegogo now. Pre-orders are now available and new backers can still take advantage of exclusive early-bird pricing.

Finding the Right Contractor for Your Home

Finding the right contractor for your renovation is the most important step, it could be the difference between a successful project and a disastrous one.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Finding the right contractor for your home is almost as important as the entire renovation project itself. The right contractor should be reliable, professional, experienced, and communicative. Choosing the right one could be the difference between a successful project and a disastrous one.

This all sounds great, right? Well, while finding the perfect home renovation contractor who you can trust to see the job through is ideal, the opposite tends to happen more often than you may think. Winding up with a bad contractor can leave your house in ruins, your money down the drain, and your hopes dashed. This is why it so important to choose a contractor that can complete your renovation project successfully and within budget.

Renovating a home is an expensive, challenging, and stressful process. This is why the right contractor can make all the difference. So how do you find the right contractor who will meet and exceed all your expectations, stick to the budget, and keep you sane even when the most unexpected events occur?

It’s all about knowing what to look for and asking the right questions. Here are seven ways to find the perfect contractor for your home.

1. Do Your Research

When choosing the right contractor, it is important to do your research. Go to their website, look at reviews, get an idea of their experience, and read their testimonials. To find the right contractor, you need to put the time and effort into doing your homework. Once you do your research, interview at least three potential contractors. Ask them questions and negotiate with them. Some questions you should ask when conducting your interviews include, but are not limited to:

– What is your background?
– How experienced are you in this job type?
– Are you licensed?
– Will you be hiring subcontractors?
– Will you provide proof of general liability insurance?
– What is a realistic timeline for this project?
– What will you do if you find something unexpected, like a leaking pipe or rotting floors?
– What will the payment schedule be?

2. Check References

It is extremely important to check your contractor’s references to get an idea of the level of service they provide. This way, you can also find out how well they adhere to schedules and expectations. Be sure to talk to their most current customers.

3. Get Recommendations

It’s always helpful to get recommendations from friends or family members you trust. This is one of the best ways to find a contractor because friends and family members have your best interests in mind. You can also check provincial or trade associations with public registries like the Ontario College of Trades to see if a contractor is in good standing and certified. You can also speak to a building inspector who is likely to know contractors who meet code requirements and are reliable.

4. Don’t Let Price Be the Deciding Factor

Regardless of what your budget is, don’t let the cheapest bid be the one deciding factor. A contractor who makes a low-ball bid could possibly be desperate for work — or may even cut corners. Look for someone whose criteria matches everything you are looking for. At the end of the day, it’s better to spend more money to get the job done right.

5. Communication

One of the most important parts of a renovation project is the communication you have with a contractor. To get the home of your dreams, you will need to make sure that the contractor you choose understands your goals and your expectations. You should expect to talk to your contractor frequently — possibly every day if it’s a big job. It is vital to always have open lines of communication and to set clear expectations. Sometimes it’s better to pay more for someone who is easy to communicate with.

6. Find Out if Any Work Will Be Subcontracted

Before you hire your contractor, you should also find out if the work will be completed by the contractor's own employees, and what work (if any) will be subcontracted. It is important to get a full idea of the exact work the contractor will be doing so that you can communicate effectively and find quick solutions to any issues that may come up.

7. Choose the Right Contractor for the Right Job

Choose the right contractor for the project you have in mind. For example, if your friend’s contractor did a great job doing their roof, but you’re renovating your kitchen, that contractor might not be the right fit for your renovation project. Try to find a contractor who regularly does the kind of work that you want completed. They should have lots of experience completing the type of work you need done.

Sonic Soak, The World’s Smallest Cleaning Device, Concludes Pre-orders and Launches on eCommerce

Sonic Soak generates modulated ultrasonic waves that travel through the water to clean at the microscopic level.

Sonic Soak generates modulated ultrasonic waves that travel through the water to clean at the microscopic level. So you can “wave” goodbye to dirty and say hello to a genuinely clean load of laundry.

Why Sonic Soak

The gentle cleaning from Sonic Soak is perfect for delicates, hand wash only items, and hard-to-clean items that can’t stand the ferocity of the washing machine. Sonic Soak thoroughly cleanses items without causing excess wear and tear that traditional wa

Tens of thousands of units shipped to happy customers around the globe.

Sonic Soak is a state-of-the-art device that uses ultrasonic waves for hands-free cleaning.”

— Sonic Soak

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sonic Soak is a portable cleaning device that uses ultrasonic technology to cleanse everything from clothes to food to jewelry in minutes flat. After raising nearly $3 million of its original $10,000 goal on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo and raising ¥118M on Makuake in Japan (2nd most funded crowdfunding campaign in Japanese history), Sonic Soak’s pre-order phase has finished and it is now available for purchase at www.sonicsoak.com.

Sonic Soak’s unprecedented success on Indiegogo spurred additional rounds of pre-orders and a manufacturing push to satisfy the unexpected demand. The founder of Sonic Soak, commented in a recent interview, “After such an incredible response from our backers and influencers on the web, we wanted to launch the Sonic Soak the right way—by ensuring availability to everyone who helped us make this happen. We’re excited to announce that we are finally ready to fulfill our promise to our backers by shipping Sonic Soak worldwide.” Sonic Soak is available to order now at www.sonicsoak.com for a special launch price.

Sonic Soak is a state-of-the-art device that uses ultrasonic waves for hands-free cleaning. While ultrasonic technology has been used in the past, nothing has come close to the power of Sonic Soak’s 50W generator, which cleans and kills bacteria — much more than conventional washing.

Perfect for travelers, Sonic Soak is smaller than an iPhone and weighs less too. Simply place it into a basin of water with whatever needs cleaning and turn it on. 50,000 ultrasonic vibrations per second clean deep and fast while using much less water and energy than a washing machine. Ultrasonic waves have the benefit of cleaning down to a microscopic level, meaning there’s no stain, odor, or scuff that Sonic Soak can’t eliminate.

Perfect for use with extra delicate clothing, family heirlooms, food, personal hygiene accessories, tableware and much more, Sonic Soak allows for the cleaning of what once seemed permanently stained at the push of a button—no scrubbing required. As its ultrasonic waves resonate at a higher frequency than the human ear can detect, Sonic Soak is also completely silent.

About Sonic Soak

Sonic Soak was founded by a team of engineers and innovators seeking to solve the world’s most common problems in a more efficient and eco-friendly way. Sonic Soak’s ultrasonic soaking technology was developed to clean deeper and use 40x less water than common cleaning devices. After months of research and development and the collaboration of engineers from around the globe, the Sonic Soak prototype was introduced on Indiegogo. And thanks to the generosity of backers, Sonic Soak is now shipping worldwide. For more information, visit www.sonicsoak.com.

Ipe Woods USA Renews and Increases Memorial Scholarship

Samantha Martinez

Samantha Martinez

2018 Scholarship awarded by Ipe Woods USA and 2019 Scholarship renewed to raise awareness in young adults to the dangers of distracted and intoxicated driving.

In the loving memory of my niece Caitlan, we are proud to raise awareness in young teens with this scholarship.”

— Steven Rossi

NASHVILLE, TN, USA, March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On February 12, 2018, Ipe Woods USA announced that it would offer a memorial scholarship in the name of Caitlan Wallace the niece of Steven Rossi, who has passed away in a fatal car accident on September 29, 2015. The winner of that scholarship for 2018 was Samantha Martinez of Arizona State University. She wrote a great essay on distracted driving. For 2019 Ipe Woods USA has recommitted to the scholarship and increased it by 50% making it $1500 and changed the topic to Intoxicated Driving – What can we do to raise awareness.

The memorial scholarship is open to everyone attending or about the attend College. It is done with the intention of raising awareness in the exact demographic of young adults that need to understand the potential consequences of distracted or intoxicated driving.

Ipe Woods USA is doing this scholarship for the 2nd time this year. However, organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Driving work every day to raise awareness and help prevent life-changing accidents. If you are considering donating you may what to consider them in the future.

Samantha wrote: “…A safe driver can be seen as, “Safe drivers are alert and ready to take action at any time.” being a safe driver is the opposite of the distracted driver, but looking at the statistics as safe driver is the better option. Some important ways to being a safe driver can include: checking mirrors and blind spots, going the correct speed limit, and even driving only when healthy not sick or tired. By following these simple guidelines, you can be a safer driver that can be a part of the reduction of crashes and can make you more aware of distracted drivers.
Another study has linked the differences between a safe driver and a distracted driver by following their traffic violations, “Previous research, using driving simulators or naturalistic driving methodology, found that individuals are more prone to driving violations (e.g., speeding violations, greater number of lane deviations, and failure to stop at stop signs and red lights) when distracted compared to driving under no distraction (Beede and Kass, 2006; Hanowski et al. 2006; Strayer et al.,2006).” Looking back at the previous paragraph, even just being mindful of simple aspects of driving can make you a safer driver. Distracted driving is more dangerous due to the lack of attention to the road will maintaining a vehicle going at fast speeds.
Going through my accident was the most life changing experience. I learned how to become a safer driver, that way I can be more aware of the road. I did not want to be a distracted driver and put others through what I survived. I still live with these nightmares and fear of driving. It used to be my favorite part of my day. Just driving on the highway listening to music, but now I get anxiety attacks whenever I drive too long. Being aware of safer habits such as checking mirrors, looking for the blind spots and making sure that you put your phone away and off so you won’t be distracted. Lives can be saved its up to you and advocating to make sure that there is a change.”

The Perks Group affinity program is a far-reaching network of merchants and companies that provide discounts and regular savings on products and services. Members gain access to top retailers and businesses who provide ongoing deals across the country, no matter which state members travel to.

In the comprehensive PerksConnect program, members save on brand name items and well-known services that gives cash back in their pockets while they shop. The merchant network includes gas providers, grocers, restaurants, hotels, transportation services, entertainment, luxury items and more. It’s all accessible through an easy-to-use program where members build a profile and search through a number of means for available discounts.

To improve the overall schooling experience, the State University of New York (one of the state’s leading educational institutions) automatically enrolls its students and faculty in the Perks Group program, which they retain access to later as alumni. Through the exclusive benefits offered through SUNY, PerksConnect members can access regular discounts in 13 NY regions as well as find seasonal savings across the country.

SUNY is home to hundreds of thousands of students on their various campuses and currently enroll thousands of others through continuing education and instructional activities. In total, they provide schooling and educational services to over a million people at their 64 campuses. To cater to such a large body of students allows the university to enroll in affinity programs such as Perks Group that save their students on a range of expenses.

The mission behind SUNY is to provide “educational services of the highest quality, with the
broadest possible access, fully representative of all segments of the population in a complete
range of academic, professional and vocational postsecondary programs.” In addition to their dispersed campuses and wide class offerings, they stick to their mission by providing cash back in their students’ and faculty pockets on everyday purchases through Perks Group.

The SUNY Perks Card can be used to save money while shopping, but Perks Group Members can also access discounts through an 800-number, with a coupon code, or with a link when purchasing online. PerksConnect portals are accessible both online and in smartphone applications, which allows members to access deals while traveling (either in the 13 supported NY regions or across the states).

SUNY students find many tools and resources to help them succeed while earning an education at the university, and Perks Group is pleased to offer them entrance into one of the nation’s fastest and farthest-reaching affinity programs to support their education.
