Beyond the Brink teaches us about the Mediterranean Ecosystem, which bestows a different set of challenges faced that are associated with our water crisis. California is one in five regions of the world to be blessed with semi-arid Mediterranean climate, a rare condition providing the ecological/food basket foundation for the National Security importance of the Valley’s sustenance in supplying Earth’s healthy food. This includes 80-90% of the world’s almonds and pistachios. Beyond The Brink also tackles the constraints in generating a sustainable water supply for the Valley and beyond, and hits upon the following pivotal subject matters, and more:

● The Delta

● Watershed

● Agriculture

● Groundwater and Aquifers

● Hydrology

● Regulations

● Global Impact

● Solutions in Solving the Water Scarcity and Contamination Crisis

FORMER NICKELODEON STAR, CARLIE CASEY, ROCKS HER NEW WEB SERIES, “ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT’S ME, MARGOT”

A modern day take on Sex and the City

LOS ANGELES, CA, December 18, 2017 — Following her starring role as lovable yet conceited cheerleader Missy Meany on the popular Nickelodeon series, Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide, and Mercedes Griffin on Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush, actress Carlie Casey is once again making waves in the entertainment industry. Her new web series, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margot, of which she created, co-directs, writes, produces and stars in, is currently enjoying a first season run of 6 episodes on YouTube, and was just honored with the “Award of Merit: Web Series” by the Accolade Global Film Competition.

With a title playing off Judy Blume’s classic novel, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, the show naturally deals with the issue of sex, but in an updated, witty, and highly inventive approach for the millennial crowd. Margot is the new modern day Sex and the City and a more amusing Girls, tackling smart and humorous storylines of relationships and BFFs, all while embracing female empowerment.

“Are You There God? It’s Me, Margot was born out of my passion to tell stories that encourage women to be real,” explains Carlie Casey. “With this show, I want to change the stereotypical narratives we’ve portrayed, and have been watching for way too long.”

Exhibiting perfect comedic timing as the eccentric lead character of Margot, Carlie portrays the 20-something woman who, along with her close girlfriends, is on a journey through the nuts and bolts of relationships, love, and the puzzle of life.

“My heart and soul is in creating characters that a wide spectrum of people can relate to, and in the process, providing a laugh or two,” Carlie continues to say.

Fans who remember the now 27-year-old as a teen on Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide will be none too surprised to see that her talent has only blossomed over the years. She transitioned with ease from children’s programming into adult roles in projects like The CW pilot Company Town, and guest starring arcs on popular shows like New Girl and Hawaii Five-O. However, Margot is where Carlie truly comes into her own as a woman.

“I’m so proud of Carlie,” states her former Ned co-star Devon Werkeiser. “Are you There God? It’s Me, Margot is something created through growth, authentic friendship, and love. It’s funny and real, and I’m beyond ready to see more!”

The series also stars a handful of other skillful young actors including: Kendall Schmidt (Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush), Joy Brunson (NBC’s This Is Us), Ashley Jackson (FOX’s Rosewood), Allie Gonino (Sundance Channel’s The Red Road), Lauren Storm (I Love You Beth Cooper), and Carlie’s real life sister, Siera Casey (CBS’ CSI).

“The character of Margot is the best friend you always wanted in your 20’s, or really every decade,” states actress Merle Dandridge, star of OWN’s Greenleaf. “Carlie and company are hilarious, heart-warming, deliciously and absurdly wonderful. The series is my new guilty pleasure.”

Actress Francia Raisa, star of Freeform’s Grown-ish and ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager, raves the series as, “Hilarious! I enjoyed every minute of it!”

Be sure to follow Carlie Casey on Instagram and Twitter, and check out Season 1 of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margot.

FORMER WME | IMG GLOBAL HEAD EXECUTIVE OF ESPORTS LAUNCHES FOUNDRY IV INC., A NEW “ESPORTS FIRST” GAME STUDIO AND MEDIA COMPANY

Tobias Sherman and his team step into esports game development

LOS ANGELES, CA, November 8, 2017 – Following an unprecedented run at Hollywood powerhouse agency WME | IMG, executive Tobias Sherman along with his co-founders, Simon Abitbol and Lilia Russo, are unveiling their new plans with the launch of Foundry IV.

After years of innovating behind the scenes and publicly advocating on behalf of esports, the trio has recently formed a brand new enterprise centered around the first “esports specific” game development studio and media company.

“We at Foundry IV are creating competitive titles from the ground up with esports being the primary focus in every aspect. Historically, for publishers, esports has been used as a marketing tool, always secondary to traditional game development,” explains Tobias Sherman, CEO of Foundry IV, and two time 40 Under 40 Award recipient this year (SBJ/SBD & Leaders). “Another key differentiator is that franchise owners will gain an equity stake in every game we develop and all revenue streams associated, whether it’s sales on PC, sponsor partnerships, media, or the league itself. This is a true collective effort that provides owners the value they deserve, players gameplay they’ll love, and fans an exceptional viewing experience.”

Simon Abitbol, CTO of Foundry IV, weighs in by saying, “We are creating a game with esports being prioritized at the earliest DNA decisions, all while treating the community as a partner. Several publishers asked us to design an esports title for them, however, we decided that in the best interest of the industry, it was wise to protect our IP to ensure we could execute on our vision, the right way. That does not rule out working with a publisher though, it’s just that there is no value in being beholden to one.”

“Many traditional sports team owners purchased esports franchises and are now asking themselves, what did I actually purchase and how do I capitalize?” says Lilia Russo, Co-Founder of Foundry IV. We help better define value and truly support traditional sports team ownership and investors as they become acclimated in an industry that is new to most of them.”

To differentiate itself in the marketplace, Foundry IV intends on achieving many important goals, including the few key pillar concepts below:

Allowing professional sports organizations and investors to own not just the league franchise slots, but also the game and intellectual property.
Creating an “esports first” game from the outset, with input from existing pro-gamers, journalists, and industry professionals.
Giving access to fans far earlier than traditional publishers so the community can play a critical role in the development of the game.

With a seed round investment from MGM Resorts International, Foundry IV is currently working through Series A, comprised of professional sports organizations and other investors looking to garner maximum value from the esports industry.

Rick Arpin, Senior Vice President of Entertainment for MGM Resorts International, said, “As a leader in the Entertainment industry, we are focused on the continued evolution of esports and its importance as a strategic initiative for our company. We already have hosted some of the largest esports events in our arena venues and are prepared to open the Esports Arena at Luxor in 2018 with our partners at Allied Esports. Through our partnership with Foundry IV, we will develop additional esports ventures that solidify our position in the esports community.”

Foundry IV’s notable advisory board boasts many prominent figures in media, tech, art and culture. This includes Brian Witten (veteran Hollywood producer), Chris Nunez (renowned tattoo artist, TV personality & entrepreneur), and Tom Hayes, SVP & Head of New Media, Paramount Pictures.

“Tobias Sherman and the Foundry IV team have played a pivotal role in esports’ meteoric rise,” Hayes asserts. “With a legacy of success through innovative new products, Foundry IV’s next venture is sure to change the esports landscape as we know it.”

Beagle Freedom Project (BFP) Set To Release Animals Formerly Used In Testing, Tomorrow, June 30 In Hutto, TX

Freedom For All, Just In Time For 4th Of July!

HUTTO, TX, June 29, 2017/PRNewswire/ – Beagle Freedom Project (BFP), the international non-profit animal rescue & advocacy group, is achieving yet another amazing victory for animal rights! Tomorrow, four dogs and one cat, who were all used in horrific animal tests, will be rescued and allowed to step foot on grass, instead of their paws touching cold laboratory tables. Foster families will also be present as they welcome new family members home for rehabilitation.

It was only until recently that these animals were trapped in a lab testing facility, scheduled to be killed because they were no longer useful to researchers. However, thanks to BFP, they will now be smelling sunshine and soil, instead of dangerous chemicals; they’ll be called by real names instead of the federal identification numbers tattooed inside their ears. The animals were the victims of what is deemed “pound seizure”; a former companion pet who got lost and ended up at the shelter, or never had a loving family to begin with.

“We are ecstatic that this laboratory is allowing us to take these animals and give them a life instead of killing them, which is standard practice in the testing industry,” explains Shannon Keith, President & Founder of BFP. “Hopefully other labs will take a cue and begin releasing more animals too.”

Many jurisdictions still allow animal testing facilities to pay them for animals at their shelter, only to test and kill. Several states have prohibited this shocking practice, but unfortunately, Texas allows these inhumane acts to continue… although, each municipality has its own control over whether or not they practice it.

“These adorable mixed breed dogs and cat are finally getting the freedom they deserve, and it couldn’t come at a better time during the start of 4th of July weekend,” says Shannon Keith.

All media is invited to witness these animals take their first steps of independence on Friday, June 30, 2017 at 115 Fistral Dr., Hutto, TX 78634 (private residence). The ETA will be at 6:00pm but is slated to change slightly. To verify time before arriving, please contact Managing Director Lorna Campbell at 323-243-2300.

To interview Shannon Keith, please contact EKC PR at 310-441-1000 or email [email protected].

LARA TRUMP, PRESIDENT’S DAUGHTER-IN-LAW, TO SPEAK AT BEAGLE FREEDOM PROJECTS’ 3RD ANNUAL RED, WHITE & BEAGLE FUNDRAISER ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 3, 2017, AND HELP RAISE AWARENESS OF BFP’S LEGISLATIVE AGENDA AND ONGOING FIGHT FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 2, 2017) – Beagle Freedom Project (BFP), the national non-profit, animal rescue and advocacy organization, is hosting its 3rd annual Red, White & Beagle fundraiser on Wednesday, May 3, at the Hotel Monaco in Washington D.C. The grand charity event begins at 6:00pm with a VIP reception and silent auction, followed by the main program at 8:00pm. 

Headlining speakers will include President Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump (wife to Eric Trump, avid animal lover, owner of two beagles, welfare advocate), and Jeremy Bernard (former White House Social Secretary and Special Assistant to President Obama), among others. Also expected to attend are various BFP supporters, adopters, Congressional members, and rescued laboratory beagles.

BFP has been working diligently to pass their Beagle Freedom Bill – a bill that aims to secure the release of dogs and other animals (after they’ve been subjected to countless hours of laboratory testing), offering them a second chance at a normal life. Already the law in 5 states, BFP’s goal is to pivot this bill to national matters by taking it to a federal level and applying it to all 50 states. Today, the standard operating procedure for laboratories is to summarily kill the animals once they are no longer needed for experimental purposes.

“After everything these animals endure in tax-payer financed research, BFP believes they deserve the right to be released,” explains BFP’s Founder & President, Shannon Keith. “Our charity is beyond thrilled to have the bi-partisan support of such strong supporters like Lara Trump, Jeremy Bernard, and a growing number of Congressional members. Red, White, & Beagle is our kick-off event for a concerted federal effort to offer basic protection for the survivors of experiments, and it demonstrates that this issue has the power to unify everyone, regardless of party, politics, or even last name.”

This year’s Red, White & Beagle has received immense support from brands like Trader Joe’sAMC TheatresUrban OutfittersORLYLush CosmeticsKiss My FaceBarkBoxBark!, and many more.

BEAGLE FREEDOM PROJECT SPEARHEADED ‘RALLY FOR THE RIGHT TO RESCUE’ EVENT IN SUPPORT OF THE BEAGLE FREEDOM BILL, SB 1884, ON APRIL 25, 2017

SPRINGFIELD, IL (April 25, 2017) – Beagle Freedom Project (BFP), the national non-profit, animal rescue and advocacy organization, was joined by various supporters at the Lincoln Statue on the State Capitol Steps to urge the passing of the Beagle Freedom Bill, also known as SB 1884. If approved, the bill would facilitate a relationship between Illinois labs and rescue organizations so that all laboratory animals would get a chance at living a happy life after the experiments end. The event united political representatives, organization supporters, and dozens of rescued lab beagles, as they rallied for the passing of this very important bill.

The release of laboratory animals in Illinois solely depends on the discretion and volunteer time of the lab workers. Unfortunately, the majority of these people don’t make any attempt at finding homes for the animals who had been used for testing, and as a result, numerous healthy research animals are killed when they are no longer needed by the lab. BFP’s main mission and goal is to put a stop to this horrendous act!

“Since 2010, we have been raising awareness of this crucial issue and are known for the emotionally gripping and heartfelt rescue videos of beagles who had survived animal-based research,” says Research Specialist of BFP, Jeremy Beckham. “With support and unity, BFP will be able to give more laboratory animals a chance at a normal life.”

The organization has successfully negotiated for the release of hundreds of laboratory animals from research facilities in 36 states, but it doesn’t stop there. BFP strongly believes that a nationwide law or regulation needs to immediately be put in place.

“It’s terrible enough that these animals are used for laboratory experimentation, but to deny them a chance of being adopted into a loving, forever home, is completely unnecessary,” explains Jeremy Beckham. “If given the opportunity, I’m confident that many Illinois families would take great pleasure in bringing an animal home, and offer them affection and stability.”

The non-profit has strong celebrity support from stars such as Sia, Chelsea Handler, Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, Maria Menounos, Whitney Cummings, Nikki Reed, and Ian Somerhalder, amongst many others.
