Short Indie Film “Poolside” Racks Up Awards at Prestigious International Film Festivals

Kinter Media


Dallas-based filmmaker delves into dark emotionality of lonely 1950’s high society woman in flick slated for distribution on Amazon Prime and Video on Demand

We loved how the story progressed, and the reveal was shocking, even with the hints that were given at the start and in the middle of the film.”

— Alex

TEXAS, DALLAS, UNITED STATES, April 11, 2021 / — After making his screenwriting and directorial debut, Dallas-based video production visionary Alex Kinter recently received a record 20 international laurels from the world’s most prestigious film festivals for his short independent mood film, “Poolside.” Among his increasing wins, he has been awarded “Best Short Film” by the Indie Short Fest (an affiliate of the Los Angeles International Film Festival), New York Movie Awards, and Andromeda Film Festival. The art house flick, which has also been selected for global festival premieres in Cannes, Prague and Milan later this year, is slated for mass distribution and streaming availability on Amazon Prime and Video on Demand.

A renowned multimedia producer and owner of Kinter Media, Kinter’s vision for “Poolside” centers on the character study of a troubled soul, and his desire to explore the underlying depths of fear, darkness and isolation experienced by his protagonist– a tormented 1950’s high society housewife juxtaposed against an idyllic American dream home. Alone at her indoor pool, she struggles to maintain her sanity and understand the distressing voices she hears whenever she’s underwater. “I wanted to create a movie that was transcendentally honest and human,” Kinter said. “The story touches on survival and what an individual deals with, both mentally and emotionally, to cope each day in the face of larger forces around us that influence our well-being,” he said. The film stars Anne Beyer, Giovannie Cruz, and Oscar Seung. “The house in the film represents existence and its different rooms hold different memories. I think audiences will have a unique experience through the lead character and her journey of self-realization,” he shared.

Though the film was initially completed and released in 2019, Kinter admits that the creation process was accompanied by a somber period of setbacks, delays and great loss. Erik Schuessler, his co-director and writer on the “Poolside” project, passed away before the film was released. From this reality, Kinter explains that “Poolside” has taken on a deeper, more symbolic meaning as he now considers the film a living tribute to his creative partner. “Erik was positioned at the heart of the project and brought everything to life with his passion,” he said. “The entire production team, cast, and crew are eternally grateful for his contributions, and through our film, we’re committed to keeping his memory alive,” he concluded.

A virtual community of C-suite executives (The World's Best Connectors) wants to be a major player in the economic recovery by training other executives.

I am calling upon large corporate leaders, who have been talking about equity for the past year, to actually get involved as sponsors for these types of events that really touch all business owners”

“The twin catastrophes of COVID-19 and civil unrest in 2020 exposed the economic wounds that have been festering in the US for years,” says The WBC’s CEO Denise Meridith. “As a virtual business leadership community, The World’s Best Connectors (WBC)foresaw the real, daily problems facing business executives, and the power of technology to help.”

Meridith and her small band of dedicated, successful business and academic leaders are using their own expertise and extensive networks to assemble a powerful collection of top experts to address the serious, but little understood or discussed, topics (e.g., acquisitions & mergers, succession planning, wealth preservation, supply chain management and sustainability) challenging struggling CEOs.

Frontline and Immigrant Workers Receive Care Packages In 'Aid To Humanity' Events By Iglesia Ni Cristo

INC volunteers in Victoria, Canada, hand out care packages to frontline workers during the Aid To Humanity event on March 28.

<img src="image4.png" alt="Immigrant workers in Abbotsford, Canada receiving their care package at Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) event" />

Thankful immigrant workers in Abbotsford, Canada, receive care packages from the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) during an Aid To Humanity event on March 27.

Essential workers in British Columbia, Canada receive appreciation and a morale boost from outreach events of global Church.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, April 10, 2021 / — The Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) or Church Of Christ launched a series of activities under the 'Aid To Humanity' initiative, aimed at uplifting the morale of frontline essential workers and immigrants affected by the current pandemic.

On March 27 and 28, 2021, INC volunteers handed out 480 care packages containing groceries to frontline essential workers who accepted the Church's invitation to drive to the nearby INC worship buildings in Surrey, Burnaby, and Victoria, Canada.

The INC strives to play a part in appreciating and uplifting the frontliners in the greater Vancouver area and Victoria.

As stated by Statistics Canada (February 2, 2021): “Seven in ten health care workers who participated in a recent crowdsourcing initiative reported worsening mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic…”

Rose Ann Peralta, a nurse, was grateful for the token of appreciation she received. "I'm actually surprised and glad at the same time because not a lot of people appreciate what frontliners are doing. Many have been disregarding the frontliners' effort, and I'm just glad that you appreciate what we do. I used to do my preceptorship at (the) hospital. I went there one day and it was the first day of an outbreak. It was really scary, and it was devastating for me to see the patients who have COVID-19 there. I believe that INC members have big hearts, so thank you for supporting the frontliners. Keep doing what you're doing."

The INC also distributed an additional 70 care packages to Mexican and Guatemalan immigrants working at a tulip farm in Abbotsford, Canada, also on the 28th. The care packages contained clothes and daily essentials.

According to Statistics Canada (May 1, 2020): “… [I]mmigrants were significantly more likely than Canadian-born individuals to report that the crisis would have a “major” or “moderate” impact on their finances. In particular, immigrant men were more likely than Canadian-born men to report that the crisis would have an impact on their ability to meet financial obligations (43% vs. 27%).”

Robert Baldidoy, the supervisor of the tulip farm, stated, “The workers are so glad and thankful that the Church Of Christ was able to reach out to them with kind-hearted gifts and donations. They appreciate the packages that they received, which will give additional aid for their daily needs, but most of all looking forward to learning about the biblical words of God taught inside the Church Of Christ.”

The INC has more than a hundred congregations and groups worship service throughout Canada. Eighteen of which are in British Columbia.

The Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) or Church Of Christ continues to conduct outreach and INCGiving Project activities to help organizations and communities in over 158 countries and territories where there are INC members of different nationalities and ethnicities.

Ray Mills’ “Let’s Start a Business” Helps Hundreds of Businesses Owners Get Their Business off the Ground

Ray Mills

Let’s Start a Business by Ray Mills

Drawing from his own experience as the owner of multiple businesses and now a self-made millionaire, Ray Mill’s latest book is about laying a solid foundation.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA, April 10, 2021 / — Let’s Start a Business, is helping young and experienced entrepreneurs get their businesses off the ground. The book by business and social entrepreneur Ray Mills hit the shelves in 2019 and it could not have come at a better time. With the pandemic taking a major toll on local and global economies, start-up businesses have been some of the hardest hit across all sectors. Yet surprisingly, the pandemic has also led to an increase in entrepreneurial spirit and activity as more and more people and companies devise new business ideas to fill existing and emerging market needs.

Let’s Start a Business has made it easier for companies and would-be entrepreneurs to start their business and build it towards success. The book, which focuses on how to lay the right foundation to start and operate a business, is just the book for anyone who wants to start a business but doesn’t know how. In his book, he talks about the fundamental elements required in a business’ foundation, elements that people should use to start and operate their businesses. He believes the right foundation is the key to a successful business.

Yet, Mills, father of three, is not your average businessman. Born and raised in South Fulton, Georgia, he’s childhood and teenage years were not without hardships and challenges. As a teenager, he dropped out of high school and experienced several more setbacks along the way before he was able to turn his life around and reach the top.

As a business and social entrepreneur, he now owns and operates numerous businesses, including Ray Mills Enterprises and The Mills Academy, a childcare development centre. He is also a well-known author, in fact a best-selling author thanks to Let’s Start a Business. According to Mills, “A problem is only a problem when you don’t have a solution”. He stands as a compelling example of what other young people can achieve, despite the adversaries that often accompany growing up in difficult circumstances as he had, which is why giving back is so important to him, something seen often in his philanthropic efforts.

Let’s Start a Business has been well-received since its launch back in 2019 now joining the ranks of Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor, Paul Jarvis’ Company of One: Why Staying Small is the Next Big Thing for Business and Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In: Woman, Work and the Will to Lead. Yet, Let’s Start a Business is aimed at helping entrepreneurs establish a proper foundation to start and operate their business successfully.

Mills is also famous for his historical “run for justice” that he, together with Londrelle Hall, completed, running 540 miles from Atlanta to Ferguson, Missouri, in protest of and support for Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager who died at the hands of a local police officer in 2014. The pair received support from all over the country for their efforts to raise awareness of police brutality and racial injustices.

Aside from Let’s Start a Business, Mills also authored and launched Positively Living in 2016 where he wrote about being optimistic in life, urging readers to consider and capitalize on the possibilities in life. Both Mill’s books are great reads, but more importantly they are proof that success is not merely found but rather earned through hard work and constant dedication and determination.

About Ray Mills
Ray Mills was born and raised in South Fulton, growing up in a crime-stricken neighbourhood in an area surrounding Atlanta, Georgia. Now in his mid-thirties, he is a self-made millionaire, the founder and owner of several businesses including Ray Mills Enterprises and The Mills Academy, and he is also a best-selling author. Alongside his work at The Mills Academy, he is also a board member of Youth Build USA where he advocates for causes that foster growth in underprivileged and disadvantaged youth.

With a full range of vehicles to choose from, such as sedans (compact / mid-size / full-size), SUVs, minivans, and luxury cars.

How will Ramadan be different this year?

DUBAI, UAE, April 9, 2021 / — TGM Research has conducted a global survey of 9,612 participants (20-28 March), across 17 countries. We found that over 68% of Muslims will have their Ramadan celebrations impacted by COVID.

Key findings from the survey include:
• 68% of Muslims had their Ramadan celebrations impacted due to COVID-19
• 94% claim that they will fast this year
• 2 out of 3 Muslims will increase their worship during Ramadan, focusing on self-reflection
• Almost 62% will use specific Muslim-oriented apps or websites during Ramadan to help them navigate this period
• Only 20% will definitely travel to their hometown to spend Ramadan with their family. If they do travel, 45% of these will likely postpone preparations until the last minute due to uncertainty
• 34% will spend more on Ramadan gifts this year
• 1 out of 4 will proactively seek Ramadan-oriented promotions and discounts

How Has Ramadan Changed During COVID-19?

We know we are not the only ones curious about this. To get to the root of this question, TGM has conducted the world’s most extensive Ramadan study, surveying over 9,612 Muslim believers across multiple regions, to understand the impact of changes.

Significant impact on social celebrations

The pandemic reshaped how the Muslim community prepares for, lives, and celebrates the holy month. In the face of the COVID pandemic, multiple traditional Ramadan activities will be affected this year. The majority of Muslims mostly miss Tarawih prayer (63%) and Iftar time (65%) with friends and relatives.

Private and faith celebrations unaffected

More than 90% of Muslims will be fasting this upcoming Ramadan. 63% claim they will increase their private worship.

General increase of Ramadan budget

Consumers are seeking additional opportunities, ready to spend more after one year of turbulence. The category impacted the most will be transportation. With all the restrictions in place, 28% will spend less on transportation-related expenses this Ramadan.

Less spending on travelling, more on food

Traditional gifts for Eid and food-related expenses will increase compared with the previous year. The TGM Ramadan International Survey reveals that nearly 40% of Muslims will spend more on food and drinks for Ramadan 2021.

When eating at home, more convenience this year.
Fewer meals are being prepared at home as consumers increasingly seek convenience. 32% will be ordering food during Ramadan, with the mobile becoming the device of choice for food orders.

Optimism kicks in

The pandemic still dominates the global economic outlook heading into 2021. 2021 will be the year of transition. For many, it represents an opportunity to reset. According to the TGM Ramadan International Survey, 6 out of 10 people believe that 2021 will be much better than 2020.

More detailed information about the survey results:

Online survey with 9,611 participants, in 17 countries, broken down into gender being Male 53%, and Female 47%. Muslim believers. Age groupings by 18-24 (25%), 25-29 (18%) 30-39 (32%), 40-50 (25%). Results were weighted to take country population structure aged between 18-50 into account. We surveyed only the part of the Muslim population that will be celebrating the holy month of Ramadan.

USA, April 9, 2021 / — As part of my research in health and well-being, I was offered by Mint Wellness Center Miami to try their services. As a researcher I took them up on their offer, and here is my experience.

Getting rid of fat accumulations is one of the main goals for women that decide to undergo an aesthetic treatment. Especially now, that our body is our temple, and looking good is a priority.

I'm scared of any kind of surgery. Just knowing that I'll be in an operating room gives me anxiety, and I prefer to avoid it. However, since vanity wins me over, I decided to look for help.

That's how I found Mint Wellness Center (@mint_wellness_center) and was fascinated with the tour that Paula Christiansen gave me. It is a place where people of all nationalities come in search of non-invasive liposuction.

If I'm going to spend my money, I want a safe treatment with an optimized result. I believe magic exists and dreams come true in the form of Lipo Soon treatment.
This is an innovative and high-performance machine, which focuses HIFU ultrasound system that offers faster and more efficient results against localized fat. Also, it has the exclusive Skin Protect system, which safeguards the epidermis and ensures maximum safety for those who perform the treatment.

The first thing you must have is time. My schedule wasn’t easy, but the people at Mint offered me an open booking, easy scheduling, and personalized attention.

I was always attended by the same professional. Each day, she gave me information on how my body was transforming. I chose to start the treatment on my abdomen. 5 days later, I lost 7 centimeters. My skin looks smoother, and the sensation of less fat made me smile.

Every day, more beauty centers have this type of treatment. Provided with the latest advances in equipment to offer advanced techniques, they help to permanently eliminate the fat accumulated in particularly problematic areas, such as the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs.

Lipo Soon is a treatment that eliminates fat and avoids surgical intervention such as liposuction. Approved by the FDA, it helps to lose centimeters and sizes in a permanent, safe, effective, and non-invasive way. How does it achieve this? Through the technique of controlled ultrasound on fat (adipocytes).

It works with AI technology that varies the temperature according to the patient's characteristics. You lie down on a stretcher, enter a Spa that allows you to relax and feel a sense of wellbeing, and let a professional, state-of-the-art machine do its job for 45 minutes.

To reassure me, I decided to investigate if this system was approved. I found out that there were studies and research that supported this technique. The proof is backed by scientific studies from different universities.

Research has shown that fat cells are more vulnerable to the effect of ultrasound than other adjacent tissues. Therefore, it can be removed by this technique without damaging the skin. It can be applied in areas such as the abdomen, arms, buttocks, and thighs.

Your body is undoubtedly your best tool. Feeling good and accepting yourself is the magic I'm talking about. Thanks to the Mint team, today, I now move with more confidence, and see my abdomen firmer. Now those pants that took a couple of minutes to close fit me very well.
