The CEO of an art promotion company tells thieves to Burn the Art they stole over a year ago and explains why.Enter, stranger, but take heed Of what awaits the sin of greed... For those who take but do not earn, Must pay most dearly in their turn,”BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Robert Star is the CEO of Star Global International Inc, an art promotion company that self-styles itself as “Thinking out of the box.” They conceived and produced the Million Dollar Harley Davidson in 2010. This unique piece of kinetic art was painted by Cosmic Artist Jack Armstrong and launched him on the world stage. It is the world’s most expensive motorcycle. Star is telling the thieves who stole two paintings by Armstrong valued at over $7 million to either return the art to its legal owners or burn it.— J.K.Rowling
In February last year, two unique paintings were taken when thieves stole Star’s car specially customized to conceal and securely transport high-value art. The paintings were being taken to an art buyer in Beverly Hills for viewing. The police recovered the vehicle but have so far been unable to retrieve the art. Their art theft recovery unit was part of the defunding cutbacks. Last November, Star authorized a press release offering a reward for their return. He has had seven contacts from different people, all with similar stories. They know somebody who knows somebody who physically has the paintings and is trying to sell them in China. CEO Star is confident that the paintings are still in California and that the thief or thieves are misconceived and holding out for a substantial reward.
Star explained that if anyone is caught with these unique masterpieces, they have criminal liability and, if convicted, will go to prison. He advises them to return the paintings to their owners or burn the art. I asked Star about this somewhat extreme ‘burn” advice.
Star responded, “My advice to the thieves may not be as extreme as it first sounds. These paintings are worthless to any thief because they are both secretly coded, and Star Global must issue an original certificate of origin. No collector or investor buying million-dollar rare art wants to buy a stolen work when it is so easily recognizable. They would undoubtedly contact Star Global to confirm the legitimacy of any painting. There are only 100 of these Cosmic paintings by Armstrong, who has vowed to the world that no more than 100 will ever exist.
His inspiration to create only 100 of these exceptional cosmic paintings came from The Black Star Sapphire of Queensland (733 cts.), a $200 million gem he believed had magical powers and specifically instructed him that no more than 100 should ever exist. He has stated that if a stolen painting is returned, he will publicly burn any canvasses to maintain the number at precisely 100. Indeed, before he founded this new art form, Cosmic Extensionalism (Cosmic X), he burned all his prior paintings.
Artists burning their works is not as unusual as it sounds—a Fanatical Monk Inspired 15th-Century Italians to burn their art. Damien Hirst just announced he would burn thousands of his paintings. Much of his work is said to be produced by assistants. Michelangelo, the Great Sculptor, burned his sketches so there would not be any evidence of the work and processes to get there. Before moving on from his previous traditional works, John Baldessari decided in 1970 to have them destroyed. There are more examples.
Contemporary artists, from Gerhard Richter to Bansky, have followed in the footsteps of their predecessors. Ironically, some of these artists have proved that destroying their art isn’t always defeatist or for sheer vanity but allows for liberation, which inspires new levels of creativity. However, the reason for Jack Armstrong’s commitment to publicly burn his stolen art if recovered is as unique as his art itself.
So, it’s simple, my message to the thieves is to burn the art or turn them into a local fire station and ask them to notify law enforcement. You will keep yourself out of harm’s way. This stolen cosmic art is bad mojo. Doing the right thing, the universe will reward you.”

The smart chips double as the digital Certificate of Authenticity with immutable records of proof - once activated and linked to an artwork. Artwork's metadata stored in the Curator will now be hashed and kept on the blockchain's ledger with a universal and unique digital identity assigned to the artwork.
ARTRACX Curator platform provides a suite of free services including Certificate of Authenticity, Catalog management, Provenance, Exhibition history and even wall labels generation. In future, the platform will offer an online auction marketplace, digital viewing room and native web conferencing tool for worldwide artists, collectors, and art dealers to meet and do businesses.
“With Hong Kong developing itself as both an IP hub and an art hub, we are building this solution as a Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) platform that extends our ten-year’s experience in OpenHeart digital auctions serving the charity sector to become an online art marketplace offering value-added identity and transactional services. Our ethos is to offer the art ecosystem a secured exchange to track, trace and trade easily hence calling this project ARTRACX. We are looking forward to partnering with galleries, museum and bookstores for distribution, as well as mobile carriers and MVNOs around the world to also offer SIM cards packaged with our ENTITLE starter kit to enhance the KYC process." said Mr. Daniel Chun, CEO of Art Group Limited.

Tesla Science Foundation awarded pianist and composer Marina Arsenijevic its highest honor the "Tesla Gold Spirit Award" on July 9th, 2022 in Philadelphia, USA.The virtuoso talent of Marina Arsenijevic through her composition TESLA RHAPSODY has added a new dimension in honoring Nikola Tesla to classical music lovers in every corner of the globe”NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The TESLA SCIENCE FOUNDATION has awarded composer and pianist Marina Arsenijevic its highest honor, the TESLA GOLD SPIRIT AWARD on July 9th, 2022 in Philadelphia, PA USA. The ceremony took place on the day of the 166th anniversary of Nikola Tesla's birth. Tesla Science Foundation president Nikola Lonchar said "the virtuoso talent of Marina Arsenijevic through her composition TESLA RHAPSODY has added a new dimension in honoring Nikola Tesla to classical music lovers in every corner of the globe. She was the clear choice for receiving this award".— Tesla Science Foundation
ABOUT TESLA RHAPSODY: Marina’s TESLA RHAPSODY was released on April 15th worldwide exclusively through Apple and Amazon. It is the first major musical composition honoring the great Nikola Tesla. Since its release, it has achieved critical acclaim as a “tour de force” on classical radio stations in the United States, Canada, Australia, Great Britain, Europe, and South Africa. It is composed for solo piano and symphony orchestra combining elements of classical music, folklore, jazz and blues. It is a multilayered rhapsodic piano structure with distinguished melodies interwoven from Tesla’s heritage. The opening is inspired by Byzantine chants and church bells reflecting the sounds of Tesla’s childhood. This is augmented with elements of folklore from Tesla’s homeland. Since Tesla lived most of his adult life in New York City, TESLA RHAPSODY uses elements of jazz and blues with bitonal and bimodal episodes to reflect his busy and highly productive New York life. The structure of the composition is inspired by Gershwin’s "Rhapsody in Blue". The piano texture is distinguished by “hidden” melodies in inner parts, dense polyphony, broken chords in open positions, and frequent pedals which contribute toward the static or ambivalent feel of the harmony. TESLA RHAPSODY concludes in a heroic crescendo reflecting the impact of the genius of Tesla on the world.
ABOUT MARINA ARSENIJEVIC (arson-nee-vitch): She is an international award-winning pianist and composer, star of the Emmy nominated Public Television program, MARINA AT WEST POINT: UNITY THROUGH DIVERSITY which has been broadcast to more than 170 million viewers with over 550 airings by PBS Stations across the United States.

Leading Phoenix-based garage door service, Arizona Garage Door Guru, has rolled out its emergency garage door spring repair serviceWhen your garage door breaks, The Guru is awake with 24-hour emergency garage door repair services. Thank you Arizonans for the many years of business and phenomenal reviews - we appreciate you!”PHOENIX, ARIZONA, USA, July 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Arizona Garage Door Guru Announces Emergency Broken Garage Door Spring Replacement in Phoenix— James AKA The Guru
Leading Phoenix-based garage door service, Arizona Garage Door Guru, has rolled out its emergency garage door spring repair service.
The new service means that the company will repair a garage door spring at any time and place across the city.
Phoenix, AZ – Arizona Garage Door Guru, has formally announced a special emergency service meant to provide broken garage door spring replacement in Phoenix.
The new service, according to the company, was something in the works for a while, especially since many, if not most of the emergency requests the company received were from homeowners stuck with a garage that either had a broken spring or one that had some other spring related problems.
However, the most common fix for extension and torsion springs is simply replacing them.
Many homeowners may not know this, but garage doors are designed to be robust performers. Even the cheapest garage doors are built to last five to seven years. However, various factors dictate the longevity of a garage door, one of which is the quality of the torsion or extension springs.
Generally, budget garage door manufacturers will cut costs using lower quality and fewer springs. The two springs on lower-priced models often don’t last as long, which means either one or both may break because they wear out so quickly.
Then you also need to factor in the number of cycles for the springs, which mainly means how many times a garage door opened and closed. That’s why broken garage door spring replacement in Phoenix is the most common garage door repair.
Fortunately, garage door spring repair cost is comparatively low even if high-quality springs are used. Leading services like Arizona Garage Door Guru say that they use only the best after-market springs that are guaranteed to last long.
However, if a garage door comes with two springs, it can’t be upgraded to four springs, which is why homeowners that open and close their garage doors more frequently will want to invest in a more robust model with four springs.
Arizona Garage Door Guru’s prompt, emergency garage door spring replacement will mean that homeowners aren’t stranded with a broken garage door in the middle of the night. The company said that their technicians travel with all the tools and springs they need to complete the job.

“One of the most common emergency complaints we get from homeowners is that their garage door is stuck or that they think the spring is broken.
Many of these complaints come in through the night and early morning when people return home or leave for work, only for the garage door to break on them. Since garage door springs are the most common complaint we’ve fielded over the years, we now offer an emergency service for people who know their garage door spring(s) have broken. This means our professionals will arrive with a fresh set of springs and replace them right away.” Said a technician working for Arizona Garage Door Guru.
He added, “While many homeowners may be tempted to follow YouTube videos and replace their garage door spring, attempting this is dangerous. Garage doors weigh several hundred pounds, and the slightest mistake can cause personal harm. Fortunately, garage door spring repair costs are comparatively low, and as professionals, we can assure you of a job well done.”
According to experts, the best way to prevent a garage door spring from suddenly failing is to get the garage door inspected annually. A professional annual inspection helps to find issues with various parts of the garage door’s mechanism, which can then be addressed to prevent sudden failure. For instance, if the garage door springs are beginning to wear, the technician may recommend replacing the torsion springs to ensure that the garage door performs reliably.
Newer garage doors, often ones less than three years old, may not require an annual inspection and may still be under warranty. If the spring breaks on a newer garage door, it may be covered by the warranty, in which case, it is best to register a complaint with the company. However, under no circumstance should anyone attempt to replace torsion or extension springs on a garage door.

BITCOINZ Skyrockets Attracting Interest With Upcoming Binance Smart Chain Bridge amid a Cryptocurrency Bloodbath
BTCZ is turning to a hedge against the hyper inflated "DeFi" platforms and their tokens. The BITCOINZ Community repeatedly warned for the upcoming disasterBITCOINZ will be soon available in popular blockchains like Binance Smart Chain, with the launch of the Connect-Z bridging platform which is already open for Community testing”LONDON, LONDON, UK, July 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- During the recent weeks the vast majority of cryptocurrencies and tokens have seen huge losses that in many scenarios are between -60% down to -99% and this doesn't seem to be just an accidental event.— BITCOINZ Community
Most specifically during the last 3 months popular assets like Bitcoin and Litecoin had a loss of more than -50% for their value.
But the bigger losers of the last month are the so called "DeFi" projects that like Ethereum, Algorand , Polkadot and Solana, with loses that are even over -60% to -75% (The provided table contains information taken from the popular CoinmarketCap platform).
However there was a specific cryptocurrency that skyrocketed during the last month gaining more than +70% . This is BITCOINZ.
Trying to understand these moves : Why the "DeFi" platforms and their tokens had so huge losses ?
The "Defi" platforms became trendy on 2019 and were introduced by Ethereum. Most of the recent DeFi projects have been battling with each other trying to be "the next Ethereum". The "DeFi" model is concentrated in the creation of tokens with smart contracts that interact with the mother chain and other tokens. Tokens are assets that don't have their own independent networks. By contrast, they depend on their mother network which offers a ready and easy to use infrastructure with wallets and exchanges to every potential "project creator/ token founder".
The quotes are used because in the most cases fraudulent developers launch scam digital assets with token form, abusing this easiness.
A token asset is a totally pre-mined one, completely away from the logic of classic cryptocurrency assets that Bitcoin had introduced with its Proof of Work (PoW) model. In a Bitcoin-like PoW blockchain , people are antagonizing with their hardware to solve algorithmic problems, participating in a decentralized network of transactions. So they get rewards for each new block, each new solution that they find. This way new coins are created slowly and are distributed to thousands or even millions of people around the world according to the rules of each PoW cryptocurrency network , like a fixed maximum supply, a defined curve for the emissions rate etc.
On the contrary, a token asset is totally pre-mined which means that a founder created all of its supply and allocated it to an address... to his address.
The token's founder using heavy marketing and the right connections (aka bribing influencers and owners of popular exchanges by giving them a percentage of this supply), creates an extreme demand for his new asset and literally sells thin air to all the buyers. He then jumps to his next creation, usually abandoning the previous one and the history is repeated again and again.
In the end the investors and buyers are left with useless tokens that in most cases even hundreds of them have much lower value than the cost of the required gas fees in order to just move them in the mother network (mother networks are blockchains like Ethereum, Solana or Avalanche for example).
This is what we call a "rug pull" and this is how the cryptocurrency landscape ended having countless useless "assets" and many new ones created every day. Obviously this would not end well.
Which is the role of the mother networks? Do they follow the original cryptocurrency idea?
The mother networks are usually company driven projects that are again either heavily premined (like Ethereum) or completely premined (most ETH wannabe chains). This means that when these networks had been launched, their founders allocated a huge part or all the coins' supply in their wallets. This gave them huge economical power to demonstrate and advertise their own "token-factory/DeFi" platform, targeting to be the next Ethereum:
A project that would centralize almost every digital asset in its own network. This way a mother network makes its coins more precious because of the demand for "Gas fees" hence every proxy token, that depends on it, has to pay fees in iits mother network's coins. Exactly like many thousand ETH tokens do with Ethereum Fees, leading to the legendary ETH GAS fee spikes that had a cost of even over $170 in ETH. In simple words, a user that wished to transfer $100 in Shiba Inu, Safemoon or other tokens that were originally based on Ethereum, had to pay a cost that was almost double of the transferred sum (!). Many times with additional issues like network congestion and failures because of the high traffic.
Of course again all the above have no relation with the original cryptocurrency idea, that Bitcoin introduced, for some obvious reasons :
1) A classic cryptocurrency was supposed to offer Decentralization in the levels of coin Distribution, Governance and Network.
The "Defi" model seems more like... Centralized Finance as the founders of these mother-chain platforms always receive a huge or the whole of their project's coin supply during the launch in their wallets.
2) A Bitcoin-like cryptocurrency has the target to offer Freedom from Central Authorities and the lowest possible fees for borderless transactions.
In the "DeFi" model the mother chain and his founder acts as a central authority in every level:
-They allocated the supply to their wallets.
-The network is not fully decentralized because specific servers support it and not potentially everyone like in PoW Projects
(for example Cosmos and Luna networks had shut down for hours, Solana's network had repeatedly shut downin the past etc)
- The fees can touch the sky with so many assets gathered on a single project as these mother chains act like a magnet for fraudulent token founders. "Assets" that are created without any use case, like meme and hype tokens made in order to make their founders rich.
3) A cryptocurrency was supposed to act as a hedge against inflation, with fixed maximum supply and immutable rules. This was the concept and one of the main arguments of the crypto supporters versus the Central Banks and their printed money.
In the "DeFi" model there is extreme inflation that is extremely worse than the inflation of most Central Banks.
People are "Staking assets" in order to receive other "assets" which are going to give other "assets" and so on.
In just two years the Ethereum Blockchain alone was full with useless and meme tokens that could not even act as a simple medium of transfer due to its extreme gas fees.
The original cryptocurrency idea was without doubt one of the most genius discoveries ever but obviously the so called "DeFi" projects and their countless tokens are not. Actually they are an inflating bubble and a disgrace for the real cryptocurrency concept.
This is why now this family of assets are the bigger losers with every market drop and it will get only worse since this kind of assets extremely outnumber the classic cryptocurrency networks.
But why BITCOINZ made it to attract the interest of the buyers, against the general downtrend ?
There are two main reasons behind this move.
A team of developers have already launched the testing phase of Connect-Z.
Connect-Z is a bridging platform that will enable the users of the BitcoinZ Blockchain to swap native BTCZ coins into wrapped / tokenized versions (wBTCZ) in other blockchains like Binance Smart Chain, Ethereum and more in the future.
This way the BitcoinZ ecosystem will be dramatically expand , widening its audience with more mainstream users coming in contact with BITCOINZ, discovering its unique features and joining its highly active Community.
Most importantly, BITCOINZ is a pure cryptocurrency network that follows all the fundamentals that the classic Bitcoin introduced for years, with many extra advantages and this begins to be more and more obvious as the noise coming from unnumbered meaningless meme tokens and scam assets is fading during this bear crypto market. Some people inevitably discover what was the original cryptocurrency idea was about. What definitions like Decentralization, Freedom, Privacy, Democracy and Mining Algorithms mean.
How BITCOINZ differs from the classic Bitcoin without breaking the classic fundamentals ?
BITCOINZ (BTCZ) was launched on 2017 and is a pure cryptocurrency that offers solutions to all the five “flaws” of the legendary Bitcoin :
1) Its scalability offered higher transaction speed and more transactions per second
2) BITCOINZ’s high maximum supply is the ideal for easier prices without long non integer numbers.
3) The 21B coin supply in combination with the much more transactions per second, guarantees super low, next to zero fees even if it had the BTC cap and network load. BitcoinZ is ideal for transferring even very small sums of under $10 with ~0% cost.
4) BITCOINZ’s ASIC resistant Zhash algorithm protects the PC miners from the ASIC elites. This way it achieves a Decentralized Network with truly fair distribution of coins to the world Community. Not to the rich people owning an ASIC device.
5) BITCOINZ features private transactions offering true privacy for everyone.
6) (extra) BITCOINZ is a green Proof of Work Network since a) it utilizes a much more energy efficient algo than BTC b) the users can use their PCs for other activities while mining BTCZ because only the GPU is (mildly) used for the process and c) it supports more transactions per second with plenty of space for future upgrades.
At the same time BITCOINZ fulfills all the fundamentals of a pure cryptocurrency :
1) It was founded by anonymous founders and it is a 100% Community Driven project, with no central authority issuing coins.
2) 100% of its coin supply is distributed to its network’s supporters (miners) with the Proof of Work model. Everyone if free to join it through the mining procedure, using just a PC.
3) It had the fairest launch ever with absolutely no premine , no initial coin offerings and no instamine period (something that is questionable even for Bitcoin).
4) It is an asset that acts as a hedge against inflation because it has a fixed maximum supply and reduced coin emission over time with fair and slow mining halving plan, every 4 years.
Why BITCOINZ uses the "BITCOIN" name and why it is really different from the so many projects that used it.
BITCOINZ used the "BITCOIN" name adding a Z because it honored and followed all the aforementioned fundamentals that the classic BITCOIN introduced (fair rules, 100% Community Driven, 100% Decentralized, 100% Proof of Work) and at the same time it offed Zero fees, only PC-mining with its Zhash algorithm and optional privacy based on the Zk-snarks cryptography. So there was no better name to describe all these than "BITCOIN+Z".
It is worth mentioning that BITCOINZ is the oldest (launched on 2017) and maybe the only "BITCOIN" named project that can still be mined with a normal PC and it is not a Bitcoin blockchain fork since it had its own genesis block.
Other crypto projects that have used the "Bitcoin" name, did it afterwards, in a misleading way or they are just copies of the BITCOIN's blockchain (blockchain-forks) that have given free coins (forkdrops) to the Bitcoin holders. In such a way, these "BITCOIN" named projects try to enjoy a high free exposure by distributing coins to the BITCOIN owners. Sometimes bad actors from the BITCOIN chain-fork projects even steal the private keys from the BTC owners that try to claim their free coins in the BTC-forks.
In contrast, BITCOINZ had its own unique blockchain exactly like Bitcoin did and never made any forkdrops. Offering equal opportunities to everyone by distributing the 100% of its supply to the whole world Community and not to a closed team. Exactly like a real cryptocurrency should be destined to do, being the gift of Freedom and Equality.
A Conclusion for the cryptocurrency moves of the last months
As a conclusion, the moves of the last months are a trend and not a random event.
The biggest victims of this new downtrend are the very overvalued cryptocurrencies and the DeFi projects, especially tokens that have hyper-inflated supply or represent useless meme/scam projects .
BITCOINZ, being among the most decentralized, classic, pure mineable projects with many advantages over Bitcoin, fixed supply and the most fair rules ever, makes it to surprise everyone acting as a hedge against inflation, centralized assets and scam tokens.
A positive trend that is going to be accelerated further, especially with the upcoming Connect-Z platform that is going to offer the BTCZ asset in very popular platforms like in Binance Smart Chain and Ethereum Blockchain.

"Maru.Derm's philosophy is based on producing products that are natural, safe, and offer long-term benefits. They are produced from plants grown without the involvement of dangerous chemicals, herbicides, or pesticides. This means they don't contain any hard chemicals, parabens, phthalates, mineral oils, PABA, petrolatum, paraffin, or any animal ingredients. This is what makes our product range incredibly effective, safe, and powerful." - MaruDerm Founder, Altug Aynur
Despite the fact that the brand has just recently emerged, it has started to grow in a short time thanks to this philosophy. Founder of the brand, Altuğ Aynur who believes that beauty should always come from the natural, stated: "In recent years, people have desired to reach beauty through natural ways. At Maru.Derm, we wanted to meet these expectations."

American Samoa USA Location make it the Easy to Form anonymous LLC.American Samoa USA Location make it the Easy to Form anonymous LLC”TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Traditionally, the preferred states to register an LLC in America have been Delaware and Wyoming. What if there was an even better option available? What if the best state to form LLC wasn’t a state at all, but a territory? As of 2018, it’s not just an idea, but a reality: Form anonymous LLC in American Samoa. To get started is visit llc.as.gov to register a limited liability company.— Don Wellington
Benefits of American Samoa’s unique location
One key reason American Samoa is the Best LLC to start today is because of its unique location in the world. American Samoa’s territorial capitol of Pago Pago is around 2,500 miles away from Hawaii, and almost 5,000 miles away from the mainland United States. An American Samoa LLC cannot be sued without the other party’s lawyer making a physical appearance in a courtroom in American Samoa. This virtually eliminates the possibility of dishonest lawyers or former clients filing frivolous lawsuits. Not even Wyoming or Delaware can offer that kind of protection.
Taxation in American Samoa
American Samoa is the only unincorporated territory of the United States; unlike incorporated territories like Puerto Rico, the federal government’s relationship with American Samoa is much looser. At the request of the local government, residents of American Samoa are considered U.S. nationals, but citizens of Samoa. No State tax. Indeed, American Samoa has its own independent tax authority which is modeled on, but separate from, the IRS. This protection of business income from the prying claws of the Internal Revenue Service is yet another major benefit to making an LLC in American Samoa.
Safeguarding Personal Assets
In today’s interconnected world, with an ever-expanding list of apps and services with nebulous and arbitrary Terms of Service, it can be easy to forget that individuals still have a Constitutional right to privacy. When opening a LLC in American Samoa, the identities remain anonymous to everyone. If LLC privacy is important and don’t want the world to know who is owns an anonymous LLC.
A Bright Future In American Samoa
American Samoa Limited Liability Company Act into law in 2018, it was the first step toward transforming American Samoa into the best state to form LLC. It signaled American Samoa’s intention to compete with other business-friendly locations to become the new home of companies of the future. With the Internet now able to connect this remote archipelago to the rest of the world almost instantly, the time for making an LLC in American Samoa is now. The benefits are simply too good and too numerous to pass up.
An LLC, or limited liability company, is a type of business entity that a company can form by filing paperwork with the state. An LLC can have one owner (known as a "member") or many owners.
The words "limited liability" refer to the fact that LLC members cannot be held personally responsible for business debts. In a dispute with a business creditor, members may lose the money invested in the company but their personal assets aren't at risk.
