DWAYNE PERKINS with Crowdfunding from Indiegogo SELLS DEBUT COMEDY SPECIAL TO NETFLIX

  Los Angeles, CA – Renowned comedian, writer, and actor Dwayne Perkins has sold a selfproduced comedy special entitled “Take Note” to Netflix. Netflix, the entertainment streaming service giant, released it at the beginning of July on its new release line up, and it is already garnering critical praise from fans and new comedy audiences alike.   “It’s a win for comedy and DIY projects everywhere,” said Perkins. “From the beginning of the project, Netflix is where I wanted the special to live. I feel like we hit the bullseye with the comedy, look and home of my comedy special.”    “Take Note” is Dwayne Perkins’ debut 1 hour special and is being lauded for being prophetic as the internet is buzzing over Dwayne, in a bit, predicting that video games would send kids outside at least 15 months before the release of Pokémon Go.   A labor of inner creative vision for the L.A. based comedian, the deal was brokered by Comedy Dynamics, a division of New Wave. This purchase by Netflix showcases the Brooklyn born veteran comedian’s latest standup work that has been highly anticipated and lauded for its fresh take. Brian Volk-Weiss from New Wave said on[…]

BitScan to partner with Waves to Launch Global Loyalty Token, Incent

  BitScan is partnering with custom blockchain tokens platform Waves to realise a new form of rewards programme. Incent will offer a ‘better than money’ solution for both customers and merchants. ‘Loyalty systems as they currently exist are broken. Customers receive a token that has no value beyond the issuing business – and many simply don’t bother to redeem them,’ says BitScan CEO Rob Wilson. Merchants, meanwhile, undertake a liability every time they issue a token, so the viability of these schemes relies on only a proportion of customers actually using them. ‘No one gets the benefits they could. We know we can create a better proposition for merchants and customers alike. Our research shows e-commerce is crying out for a better solution – and that’s precisely our aim with Incent.’ Business-ready UI and relationships BitScan has already developed the proof-of-concept wallet for Incent. Merchants can configure issuance and redemption via the dashboard – sending customers a proportion of the value of each purchase in Incent, and setting the discount available for paying with Incent. The crowdfund will raise money to integrate the software into e-commerce sites and reach out to new businesses. To date, several major companies have shown[…]

Glow-in-the-dark Pokeball Power Bank save lives

  Pokemon Trainers refer to the innovative design as a life-saving tool. As Pokemon Go continues to incite a drive to be the very best, there is one outstanding issue that has no sign of halting: battery usage. The Pokeball Power Bank is here to fix just that.   August 20, 2016 – Pokemon Go is truly a global phenomenon, amassing twenty million users and counting. Yet every user is plagued by the same restraint of pesky battery life. This restriction tragically forces trainers to give up on longer adventures, miss rare catches, and inevitably fall behind. There is only one practical solution, being a portable battery. And for a true Pokemon fan there is really only one format acceptable for their charger: a pokeball-style charger decked out with cutting-edge technology. The Glow In The Dark Pokeball Power Bank encompasses all this and is backed by an experienced team holding over 20 years of combined experience.   The Pokeball Power Bank comes equipped with a variety of features: a massive battery life, indicator light, and a carrying clip. On a single charge, the portable battery is able to charge six standard iPhone 6 batteries, ensuring that no trainer has to[…]

Announcing The Bird Sanctuary and Habitat Project

  Because Birding in your own Backyard could be Paradise!   Tijeras, NM – August 22, 2016 – We admire birds for their beauty and songs, and the grace of their ability to fly.  We also admire their importance to the ecosystem. Yes! Birds provide many direct and indirect contributions to the environment. Birds are also excellent indicators of environmental health as changes in bird populations can tell us a great deal about the impacts of climate change, drought, weather, and habitat change on the environment.   In June of 2016, Dog Head Fire in New Mexico was ablaze and had consumed nearly 18,000 acres. Nearly 1,000 firefighters worked around the clock to contain it and it was only 10 miles from the tranquil beauty from the home of Kristen Clark. Her husband packed a few items and headed down the mountain to safety.  “I don’t know what will happen to our place or our things,” he said. “It’s just stuff.  You’re all that matters,” Kristen said back. Later that evening Kristen thought about the devastation. Most of the land that had been consumed was natural forest and she wondered… what about the birds?   Kristen had mixed emotions about[…]
