Innovation Discovery Launches the First World-Wide Database of Innovations

Innovation Discovery brings the future into our homes, now!

Innovation Discovery Logo

San Diego, CA, USA — Innovation Discovery is developing the first world-wide database of innovations and has launched on the web the core to collect innovations. The futuristic platform will be designed to foster awareness and adoption of product innovations and new technologies. It is a unique solution to fill the gaps between the existing innovations and the innovations we use.

The aim is to connect worldwide potential customers to innovations and technologies and make them more diffused and successful. When you join “Innovation Discovery,” you gain access to innovations, technologies, innovative talents, dealers, installers, consultants, joint venture partners, updates, and insights that help you to live in the future now.

The platform in development will be connections between innovations, and companies providing innovative products. It will be split in two parts:

• A front-end, consumer oriented, presented as a Wikipedia style, organised in categories with the innovations details and the benefits of their adoption.
• A back-end, business oriented, presented in a LinkedIn style, to establish networking between innovations, companies, dealers/installers, and professionals/consultants.

Carlo Rivis, CEO and founder of Innovation Discovery has more than 15 years of experience in Technology and Innovations and has founded different companies in Italy (EU) and U.S. traveling and working half western world noticing how people do not buy the best choice, but the improved version of something they already know. It does not matter if they can save money; most of the time they do not trust the seller or are too frightened to risk a change, so they buy the thing they are already familiar with.

For years he has thought about this discrepancy: many new innovations that help in reducing costs and improving the quality of life exist, so why people do not use them? At the end he found the answer: because of missing knowledge, fear of risk, and sticking to habits. He hopes the platform will empower users to save money/time, reduce consumption, improve sustainability and improve performances; for a better quality of life for everybody.

Jack Turner Productions To Hold Reading Of “Lube: A Modern Love Story” At San Diego’s LGBT Center

Gay-themed musical provides positive role models for young gay adults.

Lube A Modern Love Story

San Diego, CA, USA — Jack Turner, local playwright and lyricist, is holding the first public Reading of “LUBE: A MODERN LOVE STORY,” a gay-themed, Broadway-style musical, at San Diego’s LGBT Center on October 1st, 2016, 7 pm. All twenty-four of the songs written by composer Brandon Bowerman for the show will be played during the event, with many of the tunes making their world-premiere debut.

“LUBE: A MODERN LOVE STORY” is the first of a new genre of musical theater. It’s a gay-themed play, written by a gay man with music composed by a gay composer, but intended for gay and gay-supportive audiences. “LUBE” is a musical comedy that takes a serious look at growing up gay, including the decision whether to stay in or come out of the closet, bullying, prejudice, the lack of role models, religious persecution, and teenage suicide. But it also deals with friendship, changing attitudes, and acceptance – especially what can sometimes be the hardest of all: self-acceptance.

“LUBE” is one more voice in a chorus – or perhaps a cacophony – of voices trying to convey the message that “It Gets Better” to at-risk young adults. Hundreds of celebrities have joined the effort, adding their voices as well, but the statistics are shocking. According to the Trevor Project (http://www.trevorproject.org), suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people ages 10 to 24. LGB youth are four times more likely, and questioning youth are three times more likely, to attempt suicide as their straight peers. There are more teens in the US who attempt suicide each year than the total body count from the many mass shootings seen in the news by a factor of two to three. It’s a silent epidemic. To address this issue, “LUBE” attempts to provide positive role models and an uplifting message: “Just love yourself; the rest will fall in place.”

“LUBE” is not be the be-all, end-all solution to the problem, but it’s an approach that hasn’t been tried before. It treats being gay as normal and gay sex as a topic that isn’t taboo. The playwright wants to provide an experience for young gay adults that has been available to their straight counterparts for a very long time: to walk out of the theater identifying with the lead characters, saying to themselves, “I’m gay. They were gay. They found happiness and fell in love. That could happen to me.” But even more, “LUBE” attempts to send a message to every person who sees it, whether they be gay or straight, that it isn’t OK to bully or torment others who may be different, that it’s not acceptable to add to the problems of an isolated teen. This message may not make it to every bully or tormenter, but with “LUBE,” the playwright hopes to convince their peers that these kinds of acts are not acceptable. Perhaps peer pressure can achieve what a simple, direct message cannot.

Tickets for the Reading are available online at http://lubemusicalreading.eventbrite.com. Best seating is reserved for those who support the Reading through the “LUBE” Kickstarter campaign at http://tinyurl.com/zefra3s.

Light Space & Time Logo

Jupiter, FL, USA — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that Kajal Zaveri has been chosen for the gallery’s Artist Showcase for the month of July, 2016.

Kajal Zaveri - Artist Showcase

Kajal Zaveri is a San Francisco- Bay Area based artist, originally from India, who now since the last many years, calls California home. She is primarily a self-taught artist and specializes in abstract and semi abstract oil paintings.

Her painting style is a mix of abstract and semi abstract portrayals in rich, lush colors. Her work is colorful, free flowing, and expressive and falls in the realm of Abstract Realism, where she lets her observations, encounters and memories of places and experiences, act as a point of departure for abstracting for a more representational and modern composition.

She is fortunate enough to have her work well received in the short time that she has been working as a full time artist. Her work is currently featured on the prestigious home decor store chain, Williams Sonoma Home, and also on another such home décor site, One Kings Lane, in the recent past. Her art can also be found extensively in private collections throughout the United States and Internationally. You can see more of her work on her website at http://www.kajalzaveri.com.
