When asked about his upcoming film “The Legend of Maula Jatt”, Hamza said:

"Noori Nath is one the most legendary characters that Pakistani cinema film industry has seen, played by the likes of Mustafa Qureshi….redoing that plus adorning that entire character was something which I think is one the biggest opportunities I had in my acting career"

– When host Ahsan Zaman asked Hamza why he supported Imran Khan and PTI, he replied:
"He (Imran Khan) is an honest person, that much I can tell you. And the other choices you
have Bilal Bhutto, Zardari and Nawaz Sharif, in my mind they’ve been tried and tested,
they have done nothing for the country."

Responding to a question about item number songs, Hamza said:
“It's (item number songs) bad from a religious point of view, it's bad even from a secular point of view. You don't demean a woman on screen and call it art".

How One Executive Search and Consulting Firm is Helping Businesses Bounce Back Through Value Proposition

Cowen Partners

Nationally respected executive search firm, Cowen Partners, Guides Organizations To Post-Pandemic Success

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cowen Partners, the West Coast’s Premier Executive Search and Consulting Firm is laying the ground map for how value-driven organizations can excel in the post-pandemic era. Companies that value what their employees value are set to be the front runners of success, in addition to retaining their talent as we navigate this new societal landscape. Cowen Partners is committed to providing the proper guidance and support in helping their esteemed clients top the list.

Businesses and employees are standing together at a unique intersection of a public health crisis, cultural and political upheaval, and economic uncertainty. COVID-19 continues to run rampant, the Black Lives Matter movement calls for a reallocation of social and political power, and industries have collapsed and crumbled throughout quarantine. Both corporations and employees are concerned about enduring this unprecedented trifecta of disasters and what our world will look like in the aftermath.

The process of reconstruction looms on the horizon, and while there is no map to help navigate our new economic climate, Cowen Partner’s is profoundly dedicated to providing analysis and support for their clients as we begin to shift our mindset as a society.

What does this shift in consumer and employee priorities mean for executives left nursing companies back to life in a post-pandemic economy? Now more than ever, companies must adapt their product or service and company operations to align with broader concerns about human health and safety. Push comes to shove, and it will be value-driven organizations that soar after COVID-19 disappears. 

“From an executive recruiting standpoint, a vital step in the process of answering some of these questions is having the right innovators and thinkers in your corner. I am a firm believer in the power of hiring the right people. Employees with the right expertise, understanding of your brand and marketplace, and business acumen will generate thoughtful solutions that can make or break company profit margins in times of strife.”

Gaining and retaining talent depends on a company’s ability to ground its product, service, or operations in contributions to timely, relevant issues that are threatening local and global communities. Clients must understand their company’s value proposition, which is critical to attracting and keeping the right people in-house. If employees can find meaning in their work and feel that they are a part of a more significant, positive social, culture, or economic contribution, the quality of work and talent improves. 

Cowen Partner’s is happy to announce that they will not only be taking on new clients, but providing strategic consulting on how any business can rise up from the collapse from COVID, and bring forth a new era of leadership in business.

Gain Customer Trust Amidst the Pandemic To Bring Them Back To Your Hotel

Image 1. How Bipolar Ionization works

As the Covid cases continue to surge, gaining a Trust of the traveling public is critical for any hotel that is striving to bring back customers.

The ions produce a chemical reaction on the cell membrane surface that inactivates the virus,". "It can reduce 99.9% of microbes in a matter of minutes.”

— Dr. Philip Tierno, Director Diagnostic Immunology, NYU Medical Center

GREENWICH, CT, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the hotel industry struggles for revival amidst the pandemic, ensuring the safety of customers and employees in a hotel is not only a requisite obligation of a hotel owner/manager but it is also a key step towards recovery.

According to a recent survey by Magid, the traveling public is reluctant to stay at hotels because it does not trust Hotels to do everything possible to ensure customer safety. As the Covid cases continue to surge, gaining a Trust of the traveling public is critical for any hotel that is striving to bring back customers.
The health and safety considerations, infection mitigation strategies, and communication are critical components of any post-COVID-19 safety plan to regain the consumer Trust. To be effective, a plan must have a strategy to prevent Covid’s spread.

As Hotels implement these safety procedures, the reality is that the management has to walk a delicate balance between the need to provide a safe facility and the practical application of mitigation measures, and the financial and environmental costs thereof.

It is important to note while formulating a safety plant that our knowledge of how COVID-19 spreads is an evolving science. Initially, it was believed that when an infected person sneezes or coughs, the virus droplets could shoot up to six feet and would fall to the surface within a short time. This understanding led to the recommendations to frequently washing hands and maintaining 6' social distancing. While these measures have helped limit the spread of the virus to some extent, we have been unable to stop its spread.

The Scientific community now believes that COVID-19 aerosol can form even in course of normal conversation, can travel up to 30' in indoor air, and may remain airborne much longer than initially thought. This is a paradigm shift in our understanding of how the infection spreads. It makes the indoor air a critical component to be addressed in any infection containment plan.

Incorporating the CDC and OSHA guidelines in a safety plan is the first step. However, a plan must go beyond the basic guidelines to ensure customer safety if the objective is also to gain customer confidence. CDC guidelines recommend repeated, frequent disinfecting of surfaces with traditional chemical disinfectants. This process is effective in disinfecting surfaces, but it does not protect against viral aerosols in the air. Chemicals may also not be the optimal solution because of other reasons. Chemicals are toxic and harmful to the environment. Frequent chemical applications can increase VOC in the indoor air. Since most guestrooms are not equipped to bring in fresh air to maintain the air quality, this can have a negative outcome in the confined air of the guestrooms. Frequent applications are labor-intensive and increase labor costs.

In light of new information, CDC recommends mixing fresh outdoor air with the indoor to control the viral aerosol contamination. This is a good measure but has some limitations. Most facilities, especially the hotel guestrooms, are not equipped to bring in outside air or automate the outside air intake calibration to maintain the optimal mix of indoor climate controlled air and untreated outdoor air. Where this is possible, heating/cooling continuous flow of untreated outdoor air increases the financial cost.

These costs and constraints are forcing the Hotels and businesses to look at chemical-free disinfecting technologies, such as ionization and UV, etc., to treat and disinfect the indoor air. These technologies have been used in hospital and government facilities for many decades for mission-critical high-quality indoor air free of airborne viruses. Hotels should carefully review and consider their effectiveness and the costs to install and operate these systems. (See Table 1 for comparison)

The ionization technology, the bipolar ionization (BI), stands out as the low-cost system that could effectively disinfect both the air and the surface. It produces a natural bio-climate rich in positive and negative oxygen ions and effectively neutralizing particulate matter, bacteria and virus cells, odorous gases and aerosols, and VOCs.

According to Dr. Philip Tierno, Director of Clinical Microbiology and Diagnostic Immunology at New York University Medical Center, as quoted in a recent Business Insider article, "The ions produce a chemical reaction on the cell membrane surface that inactivates the virus,". "It can reduce 99.9% of microbes in a matter of minutes." (See Image 1 to see how it works)

In a third-party test, in Madrid hotel rooms, backed by the Spanish Ministry of Defense Biological Laboratory in Spain, Plasma Air BI showed a reduction of MS2 Bacteriophage, a surrogate for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) by 99% in air and 80% on surfaces in 10 minutes of application. See the test link below.


The BI’s active process provides 24/7 disinfection and removal of harmful mold, bacteria, allergens, viruses, smoke, and other VOCs from air and surfaces. It is particularly suited for hotel guestrooms where the absence of fresh air intake mechanism leads to stale, foul air quality. BI also reduces the need for fresh air intake to save up to 30% energy costs. According to some ASHRAE experts, BI is the most economical option to treat both air and surfaces.

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), after reviewing several Covid-19 risk mitigation options, selected PA BI as the best of available technology for its entire campus. Similarly, Ritz-Carlton and Indian Railways adopted it for their applications. See the links below for details.

RIT: https://bit.ly/2HgeJX4


IndianRailways: https://bit.ly/3m3hnyg

Bipolar ionization offers the most economical, continuous, and chemical-free supplemental method to ensure proper disinfection of the indoor air and surfaces in hotels and resorts. Incorporating such a system in the hotel’s safety plan, and communicating it with the traveling public could go a long way in building trust with the customer in the post-COVID-19 era.

Monarch Technologies, Inc. Announces New Partnership with Canna Group Consulting LLC

The Partnership Will Bring a Customized Banking and Payment Processing Services to the CBD and Cannabis Business Owner

COLUMBUS, OH, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — THOUSAND OAKS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 6, 2020 / Monarch Technologies, Inc. (Fintech), a fully licensed Money Transmittal Service Provider, announced today that it has partnered with industry leader and pioneer Sami Spiezio, Founder/President of Canna Group Consulting LLC Merchant Group, a consulting group that represents independently owned acquisitions and payments offices across the country.

Currently, Monarch Technologies is a Fintech Banking Platform, serving businesses as well as City and Governmental Agencies/Regulatory compliance entities. Monarch was built after years of industry research from state, city and governmental agencies that were frustrated with lack of compliance and thousands of past due tax payments.

"We are proud to add Canna Group Consulting LLC to our network as a trusted and valued business partner," said Christian Fea, Fintech CEO.

"Their top-tier group of consultants and support team pairs perfectly with Monarch Technologies' desire to provide cutting-edge, strategic marketing solutions in an industry that has been under served."

The intention of both Monarch and Canna Group is to reduce the risks involved for Hemp/CBD/THC/MMJ Medical Physicians and medical marijuana business owners. The Monarch platform is also fitted for financial institutions to successfully underwrite, on-board and provide continued compliance and taxation services to farmers, growers, supply chain, distribution, wholesale, manufacturing and dispensary initiatives.

CBD, Hemp and Cannabis Banking Solution

According to Mr. Fea, a growth explosion has erupted in the Cannabis space to provide business owners with a safe and cost-effective banking solution that Cannabis business owners can legally and consistently transport, deposit and transfer their cash from bank to bank. A high degree of opportunity exists in this industry. In addition, he said, the banking system is extremely slow to adapt. The Monarch platform will assist these banks in building deposits by allowing fully licensed THC/CBD farmers, hemp growers, supply chain, distribution, wholesale, manufacturing and dispensary initiatives to open DDA accounts for legitimate business and cash management services.

Multi-State Compliance

Many state and federally chartered financial institutions are now just starting to put process and policy in place for boarding certain sectors of the THC industry. After talking to over a 40 banks and credit unions in multiple states, Mr. Fea said it is clear that the need for a central underwriting, compliance and on-boarding platform is welcomed. Currently these banks and credit unions don't have the required platform in place to handle the needs of the THC industry. The Monarch platform seeks to provide the needed solutions for these banks to be able to board these merchants in an easy to use, compliant and scalable fashion.

Cannabis Banking Products

Currently, these products include:

●Business Checking Accounts

LithuanianMarketplace.com is now Free for all businesses in the Republic of Lithuania to facilitate export promotion

BALTIMORE, MD, 21201, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Lithuanian Trade Council (LTC) has eliminated all cost for suppliers to showcase their products and services on the LithuanianMarketplace.com, a business-to-business website connecting buyers and sellers to facilitate international purchases. The LTC was previously requesting suppliers to factor in a small commission on product sales derived from the marketplace as a means of funding operations. Effective today, the platform is free for all Lithuanian companies.

Lori V. Gagnon, Chief Operations Officer of the Lithuanian Trade Council, says the devastating impact COVID-19 has had on business is a real challenge, and yet the need for manufactured goods and many services is greater than ever. We believe that by making our platform free to the more than 4,000 manufacturers and service providers in Lithuania, our efforts will help to increase jobs and prosperity through greater participation in ever-expanding trade opportunities. The new business model will pose some financial challenges for the LTC because larger websites require additional customer service, enhanced site functionality, server capacity and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in order to drive additional buyer traffic to the site. Currently we are exclusively funded through private donors and the passion to do more outweighs the risk because it’s good for Lithuania.

Ms. Gagnon reiterated the Lithuanian Trade Council invites and welcomes all manufacturers and service providers to participate. Companies simply register to “Become a Vendor” and agree to the simplified Internet Marketing Agreement to begin uploading products. Although we have more than 1,500 product pages online today, we believe that we can scale to 50,000 pages during 2021 by expanding into new business sectors such as hotels/hospitality, printing, banking and technology services while increasing our current categories for agriculture, machinery, food products and textiles. .

Lithuanian Trade Council, Inc. is a non-profit organization located at Lithuanian Hall in Baltimore, Maryland, established to expand trade between Lithuania and the United States by facilitating exports through LithuanianMarketplace.com. The organization is dedicated to serving the Lithuanian community and charities. The LithuanianMarketplace.com site was launched in 2018 and is always open to purchasers and other interest parties around the globe.
