  • Multipoint Group Partners with Corero to extend DDoS Protection

    To minimize risk, it is imperative that service providers and enterprises alike protect yourselves as much as possible. Corero's DDoS protection is a vital component of any organization”
    — Ricardo Resnik
    KFAR SABA, ISRAEL, August 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Multipoint Group is proud to announce its expansion into more countries with their DDoS Protection Solution, powered by Corero Network Security.

    A further 7 countries will be included in MultiPoint Group’s distribution of Corero’s world-class DDoS Protection Services, with expansion into Eastern and Southern parts of Europe as well as the Middle East. Countries that can benefit include Greece and Cyprus, Israel, Romania and Bulgaria, the Balkans, and Turkey.

    DDoS threats continue to grow in sophistication, size, and frequency. One of the key drivers for this is the abundance of services offering ‘DDoS For-Hire’. This lowers the barrier to entry for cybercriminals and increases the likelihood of attacks occurring. In addition, the numbers of internet-connected devices are rising and the huge scale that these provide - and their lack of built-in security, means it’s relatively easy to launch DDOS attacks and compromise connected devices.

    These drivers are behind the huge rise in demand for Corero’s DDoS defense solutions, as cyber security experts like MultiPoint Group look to offer the most robust cyber solutions to their customers. This was one of the major reasons Multipoint Group and Corero decided to expand their cooperation.

    “To minimize risk, it is imperative that service providers and enterprises alike protect yourselves as much as possible. Corero's DDoS protection is a vital component of any organization, and we are entering into this agreement with confidence,” stated Ricardo Resink, the CEO for Multipoint Group.

    “The nature of DDoS attacks is changing continuously and those launched today are very different to the ones launched a few years ago. Originally, these cyber tsunamis were straightforward volumetric attacks, to single victim IP addresses, intended to cause embarrassment and disruption. Today however, the motives behind DDoS attacks are increasingly unclear, the techniques are becoming ever-more complex, and the frequency of attacks is growing exponentially.

    With Corero's DDoS protection solution, you are safe with a proven leader in real-time, high-performance, automatic DDoS attack protection distributed by Multipoint Group.

    Lionel Chmilewsky, Chief Executive Officer of Corero, commented, “MultiPoint Group is recognized regionally for their technical excellence and cyber expertise. We are looking forward to working with them to increase DDoS protection for enterprises in these new geographies.’

    About The Multipoint Group

    The MultiPoint Group is a Value-Added Distributor focused on Cyber Security and cyber-intelligence solutions, with offices in Greece & Cyprus, UAE, Romania & Bulgaria, Israel, Estonia, Poland and Turkey. Multipoint Group was founded in 2009 by Ricardo Resnik, CEO of Multipoint Group, distributing various cyber companies around the globe.

    About Corero Network Security

    Corero Network Security plc is a global leader in real-time, high-performance, automatic DDoS cyber defense solutions. Service and Hosting providers, alongside digital enterprises across the globe rely on Corero’s award winning cybersecurity technology to eliminate the threat of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) to their digital environment through automatic attack protection, coupled with network visibility, analytics, and reporting.

  • 4C LAB brings the art of healing and expression to LA youth who are black, indigenous and people of color

    Art in motion

    Students heal through art

    Marissa Herrera

    Co-Founder 4C-LAB

    Moooooove through it

    This is what joy looks like

    Organization actively seeking donors and partners to support the rising need in underserved communities

    4C LAB's roster of teaching artists reflects the diverse spectrum of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.”
    — Darci-Manzo Piron, Co-Founder
    LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- 4C LAB, a 501(c)3 community youth organization, is posturing for growth to bring art and healing to at-risk black, indigenous and people of color in the Los Angeles community. Their mission is to inspire positive social impact in underserved communities, by creating safe spaces for young people to share their stories through artistic expression.

    Founded in 2016 by Marissa Herrera and Darci-Manzo Piron, two Latina/Native American women and "artivists" born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, each with careers in the arts spanning over two decades, 4C LAB provides arts immersion programming, led by professional teaching artists and centered around the four C’s: CREATE, COMMUNICATE, COLLABORATE, and COMMUNITY.

    In Herrera's experience working with high school and early college-aged youth, she observed that many students were starting to find their voice through the arts in high school or early college, just as many of them were aging out of no-cost public arts programming. During these years, the founders worked in systematically racist and oppressive organizations under the leadership of those who did not identify as or could not relate to the needs of Black, Indigenous & People of Color (BIPOC) and did not share power. As a result, the two Los Angeles natives envisioned an arts organization where BIPOC youth, ages 15-20, could train in the arts and for careers in the creative economy while having equity at the center of its programs, structures, community relationships, and operations.

    Herrera said, "The work of 4C Lab isn't just "art for art's sake." We strive to give our young creative visionaries and emerging community leaders the safe space to share their stories through the arts. We provide tools for self-care, mental health, mentorship, and support to thrive in their emerging creative careers. Ultimately, creating a sense of "family" is at the heart and soul of everything we do."

    Piron said, "4C LAB's roster of teaching artists reflects the diverse spectrum of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. It is a team that can relate to the life experiences of the communities we serve, which allows for trust-building, deeper understanding, and a connection to the youth engaged in our programs. This creates a dynamic which yields authentic storytelling and uplifts our communities in the most profound and impactful way."

    To prepare the youth participants for success, the organization enlists a power house creative advisory board, which includes artistic advisors such as five-time Emmy Award winner, Wayne Brady, who is widely known for his work on the improvisational comedy television series Whose Line Is It Anyway? He was the host of the daytime talk show The Wayne Brady Show; Broadway actor Christopher Jackson known for performances in the original Disney's The Lion King, After Midnight, Bronx Bombers, Holler If Ya Hear Me, and the smash Broadway hit Hamilton; Dominic Colón, an award-winning actor, writer, and director who has starred in over 60 movies and television shows, including guest appearances on Power, The Blacklist, and Orange is the New Black; OG Arabian Prince also known as Professor X, an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and DJ, best known as a founding member of N.W.A.

    The board of directors includes Mario Davila, Director of After School Programs, L.A.’s Best Afterschool Enrichment Program, which serves more than 25,000 elementary school students from under-resourced neighborhoods; Kim Belcher Morris, Director of Individual Giving, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, which mobilizes resources to fight hunger in our communities and other highly respected community leaders who bring access to the organization and the community it serves.

    The 4C LAB structure includes creative partnerships, professional development, performance ensembles and creative residencies.

    Creative Partnerships
    4C LAB partners with organizations working at the forefront of creative practice, community healing, and empowering education for all. Through collaborations with K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, we support teaching artistry, keynote speaking, facilitation, and community-building. We develop arts education programming, present live arts and education assemblies, and facilitate staff retreats, curriculum, and professional development. Our custom-designed community programming is uniquely tailored for each partnership at the intersection of creativity and community.

    Professional Development
    4C LAB facilitators and professional development workshops are at the forefront of effective and responsive pedagogical practices supporting positive and sustainable social change. Our inclusive team creates safe, brave spaces for dialogue, disruption, and dismantling old paradigms, providing tools for schools, community, cultural and arts organizations to shift to more conscientious and culturally responsive practices that best serve our next generation of leaders. 4C LAB utilizes trauma-informed, healing-centered creative practices that lead to Transformative Social-Emotional Learning in the classroom.

    Performance Ensembles
    Youth (ages 16-23) create original work across various art forms to create an artistic community working together to affect positive social impact. Through multi-disciplinary workshops, guest artists, and mentorships, the young creative visionaries of 4C LAB partake in story circles, personal narrative writing, dance technique, visual and multimedia art activities, which culminate in an annual live performance for families and community members, and various public events in order to spread their message of social justice awareness and advocacy through creativity and artistic storytelling.

    Creative Residencies
    Our professional teaching artists lead these multi-week immersive arts programs within a school, community, or arts organization. Using trauma-informed and healing-centered programming, we build an artistic ensemble through dance, poetry, and multimedia art activities, exploring themes of social justice, inclusivity, and culturally relevant storytelling. These various art forms are integrated into a final culminating performance to share with an audience. Creative Residencies support leadership development, improved mental health, and a safe space to process individual and community experiences through creativity.

    Through these 4C LAB programs, the organization cultivates critical thinking skills for the youth participants to address structural and systemic injustices, and provide a platform for young people to develop leadership skills to cope, address and change these issues now and in the future.

    The organization is seeking funding to expand its outreach. To learn more, donate or align with 4C LAB, please visit https://4clab.org/.

    Over 50 Years of Peter Golenbock

    10 Time New York Times Bestselling Author Peter Golenbock on His 50-year Career

    Lou Gehrig once said he was the luckiest man on the face of the earth. But I'm not sure that's true. I am."”
    — Peter Golenbock
    ST. PETERSBURG, FL, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Peter Golenbock has been providing sports fans with some of the last five decades' most popular and informative sports books.

    Whether he's covering the legacy of the Dallas Cowboys in COWBOYS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MY HEROES, chronicling the World of stock car racing & The Daytona 500 with AMERICAN ZOOM, collaborating with hockey legend Phil Esposito on THUNDER AND LIGHTNING, or cementing his place as the foremost baseball writer in the World with books like DYNASTY, BUMS, THE BRONX ZOO and BALLS, Peter Golenbock is one of the premier sports authorities on the planet.

    He not only continues to enthrall and entertain readers with recent books like VALENTINE'S WAY and WHISPERS OF THE GODS but as a go-to baseball pundit and commentator, guesting on popular shows on networks like ESPN, SPORTS GRID, and beyond.

    And he shows no sign of slowing down. Whether he's collaborating with sports icons on their memoirs, maintaining his reputation as baseball's go-to historian or playing regularly in competitive softball, Peter Golenbock continues to be a vital and important champion for the World of sports.

    "When I was at Dartmouth college, I discovered I had a gift. I had the ability to interview athletes and then tell their stories using the written word. For example, Red Rolfe, our athletic director, had been the third baseman for the Yankees in the 1920s and 1940s, and he loved it when I would come into his office and talk with him about his days with the Yankees. He'd tell me about Joe DiMaggio and Joe McCarthy, and I'd be in heaven.

    In 1972 I signed a contract with Prentice-Hall to write a book about the Yankees. I spent three years traveling the country interviewing those who played between 1949 and 1964. I interviewed Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, and many more.

    It has been 50 years since I signed that contract, and I am still writing books. Lou Gehrig once said he was the luckiest man on the face of the earth. But I'm not sure that's true. I am." - Peter Golenbock

    Bob Denver Audio Book

    Bob & Dreama Denver

    TV icon Bob Denver’s book Gilligan, Maynard, and Me, reissued for the first time In 3 decades as a digital audio book.

    It has been a joy for all of us to make this audio book a reality.”
    — Dreama Denver
    PRINCETON, WV, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Unavailable for years, Gilligan, Maynard, and Me, TV icon Bob Denver’s story, in Bob’s own words and his voice, so familiar to millions of baby boomers, is now available for the first time in decades! This new audio book release also contains a special introduction from Bob’s wife and award-winning author, Dreama Denver. This audio book is a must-have for fans of classic television!”

    Of the reissue, Dreama Denver says “ When Bob's book, "Gilligan, Maynard, and Me," first came out, I loved it and encouraged everyone to read it. He was a great storyteller, and reading his words was almost as good as hearing him say them.

    At the time, Bob recorded his book on cassette (remember those?), but audio books weren't as popular in the 90s as they are now in the 21st century. So with the help of my management and my publisher, we had the cassette recording digitized, a new cover art design, and voila! So now Bob Denver/Gilligan fans can listen to Bob himself as he takes you behind the scenes of his most iconic TV roles.

    It has been a joy for all of us to make this audio book a reality. And as his wife of 30 years, I'm thrilled to offer you the experience of winding down or settling in on that road trip as Bob's voice reminisces about the actors he worked with and the experiences he had during a career that spanned 55 years.”

  • 50 AMP Productions And Re-Logic Announce The Terraria Graphic Novel Series

    50 AMP

    50 AMP’s first title, “TERRARIA,” is based on one of the top 10 best-selling video games of all time, created by RE-LOGIC, launching in September.

    ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Founded by Grant Alter, 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS is a new publishing/ entertainment company that will be bringing some of the hottest properties to comics and graphic novels. The first project coming from 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS is based on “Terraria,” which has sold over 45 million copies.

    The collaboration between 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS and RE-LOGIC is not the first time “Terraria” has ventured into comics. In 2016, DC Comics released a one-shot “Terraria” comic book, which was sold with 2 miniature figures. The comics were sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us, where they immediately sold out. Occasionally, copies can be found for sale on eBay for over $60.

    “We’ve been working closely with our partners at 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS on all aspects of the graphic novels – from script to line-art to coloring and more, we really feel like these are a perfect balance between staying authentic to the Terraria experience while taking enough creative license to be able to craft an engaging story within the Terraria universe,” said Ted Murphy, Head of Business Strategy and Marketing for RE-LOGIC, creators of the “Terraria” video game.

    The single-issue comic books for this series will be available exclusively at www.50ampproductions.com along with some truly exciting collectible goodies.
    The collected edition graphic novels will receive a wide distribution to stores and outlets that carry fine graphic novels everywhere.

    Grant Alter brings well over a decade of experience in the world of comics and publishing, having served as a writer, editor, and Editor-in-Chief. Dean Koontz, Charlaine Harris, Stephen King, Paulo Coelho, The Dresden Files, the prequel to Game of Thrones, Wheel of Time, Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Devil’s Due, Dabel Brothers, Dynamite Entertainment, Random House and Harper Collins are a few of the projects, people, and companies Alter has had the pleasure of being involved with over the years.

    Along with Grant comes a solid team led by Creative Consultant, Andrew Cosby, co-founder of BOOM! Studio and co-creator of the hit SyFy TV series Eureka; and Creative Director Dave Lanphear, a veteran in the comics industry, having worked for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, CrossGen, Sony Pictures, and many other media companies.

    50 AMP PRODUCTIONS CEO, Grant Alter said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with RE-LOGIC to tell a compelling original story that people of all ages can relate to, while ensuring that it adheres as closely to the existing elements of the game itself. We made this book to be accessible for new fans, but enjoyable for the fans who have supported this game for over a decade.”

    AI Exosphere discusses user acquisition, automation, and a new partnership to build Website Rabbit IO. Team committed to taking Satellite Writer SaaS to market.

    I don't think our work and training of unique models will ever be over. We have to strive to deliver new valuable AI operations and make them easy to use.”
    — said Alex Athey, Co-Founder
    ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Last RISE Team Day, the AI Exosphere team discussed user acquisition, automation, and much more. They also further committed to taking the newly developed Satellite Writer SaaS to market by any means necessary.

    The team celebrated its 70+ skills and the recently launched Satellite Publishing. It uses Satellite Writer to write social media posts, articles, and press releases and publish them automatically across multiple channels and news outlets for users.

    The initiative was a market test for ongoing automated social media posts and press distribution for business owners.

    While the Satellite Writer team works on finishing touches, bug resolution, and launching new front ends, the focus at AI Exosphere has shifted from content generation to automation tasks, VR/AR HailyAI assistant, and the flagship HailyAI API.

    "I don't think our work and training of unique models will ever be over. We have to strive to deliver new valuable AI operations and make them easy to use," said Alex Athey, Co-Founder

    To start testing automation tasks, the team has begun developing in collaboration with Social Brim to build out Website Rabbit IO, an automated speech-to-website SaaS.

    The current Website Rabbit CMS has 197 active users and has successfully gained traction with a free website design offer. However, the CMS does not offer any automated services. This makes it an excellent opportunity to test the HailyAI API and provide new AI operations to an existing user base.

    The future of AI is bright, and navigating it safely while encouraging users to gain the benefits of leading-edge technologies is of utmost importance. However, the mission remains to increase inclusion, accessibility, and scalability for small business owners, entrepreneurs, creators, and agencies.

  • ARTIST/AUTHOR MARILYN WASSMANN WRITES A BOOK FOR BEDTIME

    What the Wind Blew In

    "What the Wind Blew In"

    Delight in six fictional tales with moral lessons all in one book!

    TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- A fantastic read for both kids and adults is written by artist and author Marilyn B. Wassmann! Anyone who finds themselves paging through this amusing book of words and drawings will find "What The Wind Blew In" to be an absolute joy. This book, which has six distinct tales full of valuable teachings, is the perfect bedtime companion for readers of all ages. From the adventures of a tiptoeing imp to the mice that wanted a slice of cheese, each chapter of Wassman’s "What The Wind Blew" brings readers into a closer look at the lives led by these whimsical creatures.

    Jojo Maxson calls this book a delight. “I found this book fun to read as Marilyn Wassmann opens the world of nature in a magical way…There are many lessons you can pull from these stories to teach children about life. My favorite lessons would be, be kind to those around you, listen to your parents as they teach you about safety, and look out for your friends.”

    Artist. Poet. Illustrator. Wife. These are a few of the many things that creative Marilyn Wassmann is. She has impressively finished four degrees—two in art history, one in library science, and finally, one in studio art. Aside from "What The Wind Blew", Marilyn has also authored other books namely The Opossum and The Cat and Pen Scratching Poets.

    DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- After shocking the Sci-fi/Fantasy book system with his electric first novel THE NORTHFIELD SAGA: APOCALYPSE BOUNTY,  author Calvin Fisher returns to his dystopian world in his follow-up book, STORMRISE, slated for release August 23rd, 2022.  It is currently available for Amazon pre-order.

    About STORMRISE

    Mark Northfield has lost track of time. The days, weeks, and months blend while he sits in the Network's dank prison. After the detonation of Zeus's Mercy, the Network's secret device, the city is rid of the toxic gas that plagued its citizens for a decade. Yet, the death and destruction seem far from over.

    His world only darkens when a new prisoner arrives in his cell block: Geralt Salb, the leader of the Yellowbacks. He is a man that Northfield, once considered an ally, turned into a tenuous partner. His capture means that the Yellowback's rebellion against the Network has failed. With both men in the Network's possession, the organization's ultimate plan for Northfield and Geralt is set into motion. The Network stronghold in the mysterious, neon-drenched city of New Medea wants them for reasons they can't fathom. All they know is that the Network will make them pay for their actions, one way or another.
